2023.06.10 17:15 Easy-Pepper-1117 Rainbow Light Men’s vs. Ritual

I’m confused by these two products. Rainbow Light is 19.99 for 45 tablets so a month and a half. Seems packed full of everything you can think of except K2.
However Ritual is 29.99 for a month and only has specific vitamins in lower amounts.
Is one approach better than the other?

Combat Skeletons in DS2
Not sure if this has been talked about already, but a really cool concept I’d like to see in DS2 is Sam and/or Fragile having combat skeletons. Kojima is really big on mechs/exoskeletons/robots so it’s pretty natural. And mules/demens would also have mechs or different types of combat skeletons for ranged/close combat encounters. Think Edge of Tomorrow with Tom Cruise. Would you guys be interested in that? (And of course package delivery would still be the main/ half of the focus of the game)

2023.06.10 17:13 4alloween My partner's behavior is concerning and I don't know how to handle it

Partner and I are in our mid-30s and engaged after nine months. The first nine months were ecstatic: rich, deep quality time; many meaningful shared experiences; she's intellectual, psychological, and funny; best sex I've had; etc., etc.. I notice a few quirks, like she can be a little impulsive and can be slightly controlling, but it doesn't seem like anything to worry about. I love this woman, so I propose and move into her place in another city. She gets deployed to another country (I knew this going in)--then things change.
For context: She's unhappy where she's at and under a lot of stress. I want to be compassionate and give her the benefit of the doubt.
Things started going downhill when I achieved something one weekend a few months ago. She called me up and tore me down. I had no idea where this came from, but it hurt and fucked up my whole weekend. I sent her a stern email letting her know I wasn't happy, and her apology seemed sincere.
She tells me she wants me to visit because she's found a cat and can't easily import it back to the USA. I make an offer to see her July 4th as this would be perfect for my schedule, but she completely shuts it down, claiming it's too expensive. When I say, "It's not more expensive than any other time of year," she says, "I just don't want you to come." I found this strange. Shouldn't she want to see me? I'm flying half way across the world to do her a favor. The next day, I follow-up with her via text to let her know I can visit, but she completely changes the subject. I press the issue more a few days later on a call and she said she was stonewalling me because it's dangerous there and she doesn't want me to worry, but I knew this before she got deployed, and she was OK with me visiting some other time. She even recommended I visit with her sister. Something is happening on July 4th break and she won't tell me what it is.
Fast forward a few video calls later and I mention a piece of constructive criticism her superior gave her, because she was talking about staying in the military full time aiming for a high-ranking position, which is a volte-face from what she's been telling me while there (she hates it, doesn't think she'd make a good leader, wants to work corporate, etc.). She immediately shuts down: one-word answers, a blank stare, passive aggressive comments, and she attempts to cut the call quickly. I apologize profusely for offending her, but she "smiles" and "reassures" me she's not upset. Honestly, this was a little creepy. When I bring it up later, she said it was late, she was tired, and had to use the bathroom, so she was in a rush to leave, but this doesn't seem to align with my experience. She seemed really, really angry. Since I brought this up, I don't really get impromptu phone calls anymore and we don't talk as much during the week.
Then two bombs get dropped. We are wedding planning and I find out she was engaged to someone (within three months) and never told me about it. I told her I felt betrayed and that trust took a hit, and asked her why this wasn't disclosed, and she said she didn't consider it important, that I never asked, etc. We had a few conversations about relationships and agreed to not bring up past relationships. She cited this agreement, but I told her I was misled, the agreement doesn't cover inconsistencies, and it's customary to disclose information like this to potential life-long partners. We also agreed to being open and honest with each other. She said she has a right to privacy and she can't know what I might think is important. I explain we can empathize and try to identify with the other; e.g., if I had done porn or went to prison, I would tell her. She breaks down and admits she has done porn. Her sister knows, the internet knows, but she was probably never going to tell me. She blames me for breaking the agreement, then says she feels betrayed because I broke her trust. This seems like DARVO to me. My friends and therapist agree she is gaslighting.
I'm familiar with narcissistic abuse. I'm worried, paranoid, and scared. She's keeping secrets, stonewalling, gaslighting, and I don't know what else. My therapist and friends will be on my side, but I want to give her the benefit of the doubt. Can her behavior be explained in a way that doesn't factor in a toxic relationship dynamic? Maybe this group can give me some perspective. Thanks.

2023.06.10 17:13 gingerguitarx92x A decade on lexapro, new Dr is weaning me off of it.

Hi everyone! I’m new here, and this is going to be a bit of a ramble, but I’ve been on Lexapro for 9 or 10 years, in combination with Wellbutrin and Trazadone. It started out with anxiety for as far back as I could remember, that gradually got worse over the years until it was completely unbearable and paralyzing. I eventually dropped out of college because I just couldn’t go to my classes, and when I did, I would end up leaving. My Dr at the time prescribed Lexapro to me, which helped with the anxiety so much! But it also seemed to exacerbate my depression symptoms as well. So he added Wellbutrin to the mix, and eventually trazadone for insomnia. I’ve since tried a pretty sizable amount of different Depression / anxiety meds, but most just made me feel even worse, so I always ended back at the Lexapro / Wellbutrin combo.
My new Dr is weaning me off right now. Lexapro has helped me accomplish and experience things I never could have before, and I am very grateful for it, but it has not been without its cost. I’ve become more when more depressed and lethargic, and my appetite has been all over the place - kind of all or nothing, resulting in me gaining somewhere around 130 pounds in the time I’ve been on it. I’m so so so tired all the time, sex drive went from pretty high to pretty low despite having an incredible partner, my memory and ability to focus is at an all time low. Motivation is non existent. I used to have such big emotions and felt and connected with people and things so deeply, but it feels like my emotions have been covered in plastic wrap and styrofoam. Very little excites me or scares me. I find myself having to fake reactions and feelings all the time. I took half a pill for a week, and am now taking half a pill every other day for a week, and then I’ll be stopping it entirely. My Dr is also having me do a genetic test to see if there are any medications I haven’t already tried that might be helpful for me in place of what I’ve been on.
It’s too soon to tell a difference, but I do feel a little less drowsy during the day. I definitely think I was over medicated between the three. Anyone else get off of it after being on it for so long? Any good experiences you’d like to share, or cautionary tales? I’m nervous but optimistic. I’m ready to feel again.

2023.06.10 17:13 dum-dum-but-aware Two people heading toward same resource tile - makes you fight over the resource but who is the attacker?

A few weeks ago I headed toward a resource that was very close to our alliance border, thinking I’d beat a guy who already sent troops to that tile from a different alliance from really far away. As I approached the tile, his troops kept getting faster and faster and faster and he beat me to the resource by a half second. I figured the game would just turn away the second person, but instead it made us fight, with thousands of hurt troops. I “won” the battle (but healing the troops cost far more resources than the resource tile was worth). The system called me the attacker, and of course, we were both NAP10 so there were those issues to deal with. At the time, I assumed the game must have automatically sped up the first guy to make sure he got to the resource first, since it would have taken a ton of march speedups to beat me there.
Fast forward to today, and I sent troops off to get some silver at a tile that’s far away and not really near any alliance, and a few minutes later I get a notice that someone is sending troops to that same tile. He was a bit closer than me, and instead of my troops automatically speeding up to beat this second guy, my march speed stayed the same and he got to the resource before me. Luckily I had a march recall, or there would have been a costly battle. I surely would have won the battle since his power is far less than mine, but the healing resources would be high plus the guy was in the #10 alliance (I’m in #2) so there would be NAP10 problems.
Here’s the question- I sent troops first but he got there first, so who would get labeled as the attacker? I was just about to log off the game after sending all my marches off to gather resources, so it’s just luck I was able to recall that march. Would I have been the attacker and gotten in trouble with NAP10?

2023.06.10 17:13 Unique_Doppleganger iOS problem: Can’t unlock full game because someone else on my family plan already purchased it

I have Peglin on my iPhone and when I clicked on the “unlock full game” button I get a message that I already game the game because someone else on my family account purchased it. When I click on the “restore purchases” button the screen goes dim for a half second but then returns to normal. I’ve forced closed the app and retried with no success. Does anyone have any experience with this? A Google and Reddit search turned up empty.

2023.06.10 17:12 Correct_Process4516 Is 7 yards worth $600

How much added distance are people looking for when they get fit? I took my 14 yo daughter to Club Champion for a long game fitting because she needs a 3-wood but we decided to look at drivers as well. (She got fit for irons a few months ago and she's picked up a club and a half of distance with T200's and VA Composite Baddazz shafts.) We picked her current head (12 degree Ping 410 SFT) because it was lefty, available and in a sale rack at PGASS. I got her shaft on Ebay because it was a ladies flex with a Ping adapter. Her swing speed is 82 and her smash factor was 1.48-1.51 with it. The only combination she hit better was a 430 SFT with the Baddazz shaft but it was only a 7 yard increase in total distance. It seems to me she's still growing and there's no need to spend that much at this time. The fitter wasn't exactly pushy but implied that that anyone would be happy with that increase.

2023.06.10 17:12 cjt11203 SO missed her flight despite us arriving an hour and an half early? Is there anything we can do?

Based on the gossiping I heard on the line someone was having issues checking in their pet and this caused a lot of passengers ahead of us to miss their flight which backed up even further causing my SO to miss the 45-minute deadline to check in her bag. Her flight was supposed to leave at 7:05 this morning and now she cannot fly until Tuesday causing her to take more unpaid leave and may cause issue at her job.
I take full responsibility for this situation as I could've came early but I have never had much issue flying out of Tucson. Based on what the lady at the counter told us, as of right now there aren't any flights available coming out of Tucson to Singapore. I asked her if there is a way that we can just get a flight coming out of Phoenix, Los Angeles, or Vegas but she said we couldn't change the routing.
Is there any way we can get a sooner flight or are we SOL?

2023.06.10 17:12 thechristoph Bark is peeling off my backyard tree…do I need to be worried?

I don’t know anything about anything. This tree has been in the ground for about three years. Looks to be growing well (seems to need pruning) but check out the photo of the peeling bark. This has been going on since I met this guy about a year and a half ago, and it appears to be growing. The peeling area is about 20 inches from ground to top. The bark is thick; too thick and strong to grab and peel away. Bonus doggo (the Dude) included.

2023.06.10 17:12 Droid_Frost Broke my left RGB strip on my Glorious Model-D. I need an urgent replacement.

So basically I borrowed my friends Glorious Model-D wireless which he bought it about an year or two ago and I used it only for a few days and left it on my desk for a week straight. 2 days back I turned on the mouse and the left RGB strip stopped working. I tried turning it off and on, using it with the charging cable but nothing worked. I took apart the mouse and found the Left RGB strip ( CM2827-FPC REV:0.1) was torn in half. My friend bought it for $80+ (including shipping).
By any chance, does anyone have a left RGB strip ( CM2827-FPC REV:0.1 ) for an Model-D wireless?
If yes then please let me know.

2023.06.10 17:12 hi_yoooo 2E Wide shoe search. Looking for a Marathon, Trail, and Rainy Day shoe

Current rotation is 2 pairs of Ghost 14s Size 11 2E.
I have tried Hoka Clifton 9s size 11 2E and New Balance 1080x12 size 11 2E and they both fit well, the ghost was just slightly more comfortable so I went to with them.
I’ve tried the Altra Escalantes, the 11 fit like a glove with no extra room, the 11.5 had about 1cm of space in the toes. I’ve tried the Pegasus gortex and the 11 for too tight the 11.5 had about a thumb width between my toes and the shoe. I went to the local running store asking about carbon shoes and the sales rep said I shouldn’t even worry about carbon until I get under 7 min/mile
These are my current pace/distance 10:15 per mile 5k, 11:25 per mile 10k, 12:19 per mile half marathon.
I was wondering what, if any, shoes I should add to my rotation. I’m specifically looking for a marathon shoe, trail shoe, rainy day shoe(gore tex?)

2023.06.10 17:12 bookwyrmiest Found my partner in bed with someone else

Well folks, it’s been nice. Been here since my partner (ex now I guess) came out as trans. This morning, about an hour and a half ago actually, I went to my partners apartment and found her in bed with someone else. 5 years down the drain. Sounds flippant but I’m actually a big ball of tears, anger, and sadness all rolled in one.
Anyway, thanks for the help navigating everything and good luck to everyone else. Thought I was part of the minority where everything worked out with a transitioning partner that you were in a relationship with pre-transition, but looks like I’m in the majority after all, where everything falls apart.
Moving on will be hard. I loved her. Wish me luck.

2023.06.10 17:12 Smodder I think I might be dealing with some cultural misunderstanding regarding Indian boys on tinder? Or not?

I do not live in India. In the Netherlands. In a place where the centerpoint of IT stuff is and rapidly half population became Indian men.
My Indianboysontinder are expats. (also this reddit got adviced to me me because 100% phones/computers listen.. Indian person visits through datingapp.. suddenly I get this reccomendation..lol.)
Obvisouly with so many Indian men I kinda have to socilaize/date/befriend etc.
Which is cool. But I kinda start to notice something... off. I guess. At first I kept thinking.. I can't like say "all Indian men" because big country with different cultures, Tamil/Hindu whatnot.
Made a lot of Indian friends from all kind of paces in life. Some came here to flee from arranged marriages. Some because they gay lol But still even in NL do not feel comfortable enough to say that because Indian people are everywhere and my family will know. Which is also kinda true.. somehow they get mainly dragged into the most shitty Indian landlords and such that know.. that they don't know NL laws.. and believe an fellow Indian.. I don't think the established Indian community in NL is made up of the most nicest folks.. they kinda seem to be predatory for every new Indian guy in NL to can scam.. weird.
Anyway; at one point I seem to get stuck. I'm not really sure what it is. A lot of thoughts about things they say Indian people might know more answers too..
- A lot of being suprised my blond hair and green eyes are natural.. don't they have genetic lessons in India geez! But I am beginning to feel that these Indian men.. think... white/blond = sexual and easy or something... since they say stuff like that when I say I do not do ONS like "but you are blonde!!!" =/
- Also by the amount they keep telling me I am a rich white spoiled brat and I just should not whine because I do not know how it is living in India. Problem is; I do not whine. I'm poor as how poor you can be in NL (thank god for good benefit system). I had the bad luck having a fysical life-long illness, no family and was even homeless for most of my life.. but they just start weird fights out of nowhere... really weird ones.. "that I just feel too good and on a highhorse to use a bus??"... uuh... literally everyone in NL uses busses.. it's not a class-thing here or something.. just like riding a bike is not because you are poor but more handy in infrastructure.. =/ Also.. why you keep wanting so hard I am a spoiled princess because.. REALLY you rang the wrong doorbell..
- The amount they call me spoiler rich white girl... is so much and avidly... that I kinda began to have thoughts like.. wait. Aren't you the spoiled princes?? My non-excisting parents never paid for my study..let alone abroad.. let alone... not knowing how to cook/clean becase you had a housekeeper for that??? =/
At one point they either ghost me; or worse.. keep sending me messages how I should know that I'm just spoiled/rich/white/golddiggecrazy/hallucinating/etc. Like really activaly gaslighting..
That I even asked like; what are you doing? Is this some PUA tactic you read somewhere that you should punch a woman down untill no selfworth left and she then wants you or other nonsense? Or are you just using me as some weird scapegoat... since you do not really like your job/living in NL...and decide that that is just because you are Indian and I magically have it easier and all for free? Because that's weird.. I WISH I had your IT job... or parents.. geez.. Or is this the ol' you being pissed I have no sexual or romantic interest in you but you think I owe you that because you watched too many pron in Pamela Anderson times where every woman was white/blonde..and I need to punished now and am a "kankerhoer".. (bitch/whore basically).
I guess long story short; what kind of men move here to NL to work in IT. Might they be a form of the most privileged in India. And is that a part of the problem?? I can immagine most people in India just like me just... do not have parents that can pay for a study...let alone abroad.. flightickets and all..
Are these just rich dumbarses? That are privileged in India... but somehow kinda are so dumb even though finishing Uni (without having to have pay it themselves with some side-job.. their parents paid..) that they think that all white NL people are just magically rich?? By being white? That combo?
It begins to feel a lot like that combo..
It also did not help when thinking that.. after loads of whining that they are super poor non-stop.. and I kinda began to have this feeling.. and eventually asked what they earned.. fricking 5000-6000 euro a month.. that is above average Dutch person salary... what?? How.. what?? How.. is that anywhere poor... do they even understand money or too rich? If you ask them what the price of a banana is are they going to say 10 euro???
And I would kinda hate it.. but I fear it.. because they say so much "you cant complain you don't know how hard it is to be a homeless child in India!!".. uuh okay mister my parents(that I have)-pay-everything-my-housekeeper-made-my-breakfast-everyday... I think you know neither.. and that is ugly... trying to dominate over me over the backs of actual poor Indian people.. I'm beginning to have the feeling that for every of these guys here... 101 other guys are living in India that are good in IT but just did not have the privilege..it makes it an tad ugly then calling me "privileged" over other peoples backs..
And I am also often afraid they kinda date my blond/white poorass because they actually think I am rich just by being white... especially if I compare it too how they talk about Indian women... or non-white women in general...(really unkind...) whereas coming from my situation i'm 100% sure that dating Indian women has a higher chance in riches lol. A safer bet. Since I'm fyscially handicapped and can't work lol.
And I think women (people) in India might know better what Indian boys appear on my tinder..
Are my feelings somewhere right? Or am I according to them "just hallucinating".....or.. is this somehow an cultural clash.. which I kinda not believe because India is too big and diverse that every IT-Techbro that comes work here... is magically an utter cunt. Or maybe it kinda does? Is caste system secretly still a thing in India.. which absolutely does not translate well in Dutch culture...All kinds of things go through my head but I think Indian women in the dating field probably know best.

2023.06.10 17:11 More_Change184 My (21f) boyfriend (24m) starts arguing with me when I don't want to debate him

TL,DR: My boyfriend thinks the only interesting mode of conversation is active discussion and he gets upset/frustrated with me when I try to disengage from discussions
Hey guys, I (21f) have been having a recurring argument with my boyfriend (24m) and I wanted to get everyone's perspective on how we can resolve things :) For context, we've been together for a little over 2 years and have been living together for about 2 years as well. We usually get along really well, but this is a recurring point of conflict and I'm at my wit's end with how to resolve things.
So basically, my boyfriend loves discussing things. To him, this is the only interesting way to have a conversation whereas I also like to have light-hearted conversations about how the day went, ect.
Anyways, I don't have the bandwidth to always discuss something controversial. I find it tiring and it makes me feel like there is discord, which I just don't want 24/7. For example, my boyfriend and I were looking into US elections today, and eventually we struck a conversation (specifically about abortion rights). This went on for about an hour and a half, peacefully and constructively. We eventually ended things at this point:
Him: I believe abortion is an important right, but it's not something we should condone as society. In fact, it should be punished (like getting tickets for speeding) Me: Abortions aren't easy; women are already dissuades enough by compromising their physical, mental and financial situation in case of an abortion. Him: But if we made a pill that cost 10€ and would let a women discreetly abort without any physical/mental repercussions, shouldn't we punish people to dissuade them?
At which point I wanted to stop discussing because I had to leave for work in about 45 minutes and still had to get ready. So I tell him I want to stop discussing and get up, but he follows me around the house trying to continue the topic. Eventually, I lose my patience and tell him to just stop talking to me; I will be working until 10:30pm and I'd just like a moment of peace before I leave for work.
But he just won't leave it. He now shifts to the topic of how dismissive I am for being unable to continue a simple discussion, and how much I'd fail in a work environment where any type of discussion would be required. Which I think is really uncalled for, so I basically pack my things and leave the house 30mins early because I just need a break from this conversation and I can't be left alone in my own home, even if I asked for it.
Of course, this is recounted from my perspective, so please don't be too harsh on him because obviously I'm biased. I tried to recount the events as neutrally as I could. We usually get along well; it's just that we go through the motions of me trying to end a discussion somewhat regularly and things usually end in this way. I don't enjoy it, and I'd like to resolve this point of conflict. So: What can we do in order to better understand each other in order to stop these things from happening?

2023.06.10 17:09 Splinterverse HELP! Dealing with two litters of kittens and expanding their areas

THE STORY SO FAR: We were not pet owners and had never owned a cat. We took in a young stray cat. Unbeknownst to us, she was pregnant. She gave birth to 3 kittens two and half weeks ago. During that time, another stray cat in the area abandoned her 4 week old babies in our backyard. After consulting with a bunch of local resources, we took in the abandoned litter of 3 kittens as well. Our house is small so our hope is to find homes for both litters when they are old enough. Our cat does not like the abandoned kittens (she hisses at them), but we've kept them all separated.
WHERE I NEED HELP: As these litters grow, they need their areas expanded (or at least that's what Google tells me). So here's what I'm trying to find:
  1. For the abandoned kittens, fencing and/or gate that doesn't damage the wall, can be passed through by humans, AND is high enough that our cat can't jump over it. It also shouldn't be climb-able on either side so that they can stay separated.
  2. For our cat's litter, fencing and/or gate that mama cat can get through but the babies can't. It also shouldn't damage the wall and it can't be climb-able.
For both options, if I were to buy, somewhere that offers quick shipping is best.
I've looked all over the web for options and can't find anything. I'm beginning to think my only option is to build something out of cardboard for the abandoned kittens. For the mama cat, I'm guessing I would need a shorter fence that is covered in cardboard. That way mama could jump over but they couldn't get through. We're new to all this though, so really could use advice.
Thanks in advance!

2023.06.10 17:09 violeto2405 AITA for telling my friend he hates the fact that I’m successful?

So I, (24 F) am starting to build my career in opera performance. I just graduated with my bachelors from a great school, and got a full time teaching job to supplement my income while I do auditions. I plan to audition for grad school in the fall, and I’m waiting to hear back from my local opera company to see if I got into the Chorus. However, the most exciting thing that I’m doing right now is that I was offered a big role in an opera that I’ll be going to Vienna, Austria to perform this summer! I’ll leave in just a few weeks!
Now, by no means was this trip cheap. Without giving away exact costs, it came pretty close to $5k. I’m very lucky in that I have some family that was able to help me, and I’m forever grateful to them. That being said, with my full-time teaching job I was able to pay well over half by myself. It was very hard and required a lot of ramen and hot pockets for dinner, but I’m so proud of myself that I was able to manage it! However, I do acknowledge the fact that I did get a lot of help, and I am very grateful for that.
Now onto my “friend“, he (25 M), has been through some hard stuff due to his own poor decisions. This has been very damaging to him, however, he has done virtually nothing to try to help himself. His mindset is, he’s had it hard therefore everyone has to help him. His mother pays for him to live rent free in his own place with the stipulation that she stays with him once every few months for a couple weeks. He hasn’t had to work in two years and his mom has given him a $1200 gaming laptop. Up until very recently he would wake up at 3-4pm, play video games on his laptop until 5am, and then rinse and repeat. Every. Single. Day. Meanwhile, he has told me (exact words mind you) that he is smarter than everyone and is always right about everything.
We hang out for one day and immediately he starts taking jabs at me. We ended up getting into a fight because he says I’m privileged. I don’t disagree that I am very lucky to have family that helps me, but I also know I’ve worked very hard to get what I have. My parents don’t pay my rent and I had to take out loans to go to school while his mom offered to pay for his school.
After his whole little rant, I said, “You really just hate to see me successful don’t you?” He said no, but I told him that because this only came up when I told him I was going to Europe, it seemed to me like this stemmed from jealousy, and that he wanted to convince me that I didn’t earn what I have to make himself feel better.
I thought I was fine, but my boyfriend thinks I might have been too harsh. So, am I the asshole?
