2023.06.01 09:05 Bracks3 Mid-season player review

So, we're going into a bye weekend after a pretty tumultuous 11 rounds, so it feels like a good time to take a breath and do a mini review of the players. I'm only going to rate the players who have played at AFL level this season as I haven't watched enough VFL this season. Let me know what you agree/disagree with and your own thoughts.

Chad Warner (8.5/10)
He's been one of our better performers in the majority of our wins, but is still searching for that next level of consistency to become a Brownlow medal contender as he went missing in a few losses this year. Hard to believe he's only played 50 games with the amount of heavy lifting the Swans need him to do each week now.
Hayden McLean (6.5/10)
Hasn't quite made the next step yet, but in the absence of other tall forward options and the decline of Buddy, he has been a contributor each week. Would like to see him clunk a few more marks in F50 to make him a more dangerous player and ease the pressure on others. A better goalkicker accuracy-wise than most in 2023.
Dylan Stephens (3/10)
Unfortunately Dyl's season so far may best be described as a disaster. He's been dropped twice based on performance in a side struggling with injury. When he's played at AFL level he's consistently below par in basically every statistic other than gut-running. It's a worrying sign considering the draft pick Stephens cost - that 2019 draft is quickly becoming a damaging one to the Swans list (Ch.Warner is the only positive right now). Stephens dominates at VFL level, and if he can find a way to produce even 80% of that in the seniors he would be a great asset.
Ryan Clarke (5/10)
Performed some great clamp jobs last season to resurrect his career, but hasn't enjoyed the same success in 2023 since returning from injury. Clarke is a bit of a butcher with the ball and isn't the man you want making the last pass into the F50, so he really needs to step up his tagging if he wants to hold a spot in the side, or Horse needs to use him in a different position.
Isaac Heeney (7.5/10)
There's been a lot of criticism of Heeney that I think is a bit unwarranted, but it comes with the territory as a recent AA and one of the highest paid Swans. Isaac can certainly never be accused of a lack of effort and his contested work has been brilliant all season. He is one of the best tacklers in the comp to go with his marking, the real knocker on his game simply comes down to execution in front of goals and finding a way to get his hands on the ball when the Swans are struggling, but some of that comes down the coaches as well.
Logan McDonald (8/10)
Big improver early this season and was getting better every week before his injury. 2 goals a game is great for a developing key forward. Really looking forward to seeing this guy play over the next decade, just hope it's all in red and white and he stays healthy.
Harry Cunningham (6/10)
A hard one to rate. He's played every game but was invisible in many of them whilst playing further up the ground and struggling to have an impact. I've liked his game a lot better in the shutdown defensive roles that have contributed to the R10 and R11 wins. Still not sure he's best 22 in a premiership winning side, but we don't exactly have a lot of defensive experience/depth without him.
James Rowbottom (4/10)
I'll start by saying that I'm a huge fan of this kid. But it's not been a great year for Rowy. He continues to do some things well (tackling, defensive pressure), but can't get his hands on the ball enough for an inside mid and has been a turnover merchant as of late. He had 13 tackles vs. Port in probably his best game, but 9 clangers against Carlton on the weekend, which is top 5 all time for the Swans and several led directly to goals. It could also be argued that a lot of his tackles simply come from getting to every contest second. He needs time in the twos, but with Mills injured, Parker unavailable and injuries/form issues with other replacements, I can't see Horse giving him a spell.
Will Hayward (7/10)
Struggled to make a regular impact and goalkicking has been a bit off, but Will has been an important link man from defence to attack, and with a more coherent defence he'd probably get more of the ball on the rebound which is where he excels. His last two games have probably been his best, so his season is at least trending in the right direction.
Aaron Francis (7.5/10)
Wasn't too sure about the acquisition of this guy, and was even less sure when he played up forward initially, but since he has played down back he's done more than could really be expected of him. He had a good game against Freo and has been solid without being remarkable in the last two weeks. Was also good against GWS with 13 one-percenters which shows he has the potential to do more than just be an interceptor.
Tom Papley (6.5/10)
Honestly a little disappointed with Paps so far. A very good player when on-song, but he's had some poor performances and looked very shaky in front of goals. Had the best performance of any Swan this year against Richmond (6 goals, 25 disposals), but had a negative impact in some of the losses with a lack of awareness and some poor skill execution. Paps is a gun, so I'm sure he'll figure out how to get back to his best and there have been signs recently that he's back on track.
Oliver Florent (5.5/10)
Getting a bit of the ball, but has been exposed defensively repeatedly this season. He's also had some poor moments with ball in hand kicking into the centre of the ground for turnovers, and needs to remove the hospital handball from his game. He's basically stagnated into being a very average middle-of-the-road AFL level footballer, rarely in the best or worst on lists for a round. This might be his ceiling, but the one thing he can continue to do is try to improve his defensive positioning which is poor.
Callum Mills (6/10)
Had a OK start to the season, but a bit down on his elite 2022 form, then got deployed to try and fix our defensive issues with disastrous results. Not his fault obviously and it showed how much he is needed in the midfield. Was good against Collingwood, but then got injured which has again exposed our midfield contested ball issues even further.
Sam Wicks (7/10)
One game since return from injury and it was very good. Just what the Swans needed. Will await a larger sample size as he had a poor 2022, but if he can maintain this he's a lock for best 22.
Braeden Campbell (6/10)
I want to see more from Braeden. He's been moved around a lot this season as the coaching staff try to best figure out the best way to utilise him. Obviously an elite kick, and seemed to be doing some good things in the back half and kicking some beautiful long range goals. I'd like to see him take over Florent's HFB position as I think he can complement the run of Blakey/Fox with some good kicking skills that Florent lacks, and is a better defender. He's been basically invisible for the last 5 rounds.
Will Gould (2/10)
Oh dear this one isn't pretty. The best thing I can say is that he finally made it to AFL level. Unfortunately he got exposed to some good forwards and hasn't looked up to it. Was OK against Freo at times but still got outclassed in that game by some young forwards who should be at an earlier stage of development, which is not a good sign. Not sure where to next for Will, if the swans fix up their injuries worries he'll be a long way off adding to his games tally.
Peter Ladhams (7/10)
Braindead at times, but a solid contributor when he's played. Injuries to himself and Hickey haven't been ideal because he looks like he could best contribute as a Ruck/Forward if they ever get to play together. Lost his ruck battles most weeks, but gets clearances and helps the midfield.
Errol Gulden (10/10)
Couldn't ask for any more from this guy. Been the Swans best in 2023 so far despite taking on more and more of the load.
Nick Blakey (9.5/10)
Everyone was raving about his game against Carlton, but I think he's actually been very good all season so it wasn't at all surprising. It's even more impressive when you consider that he's had to play as a key back at times, a third tall in other games and a rebounding defender when we have the luxury, often all within minutes of each other. For me, the second best Swan in 2023 so far.
Lance Franklin (2/10)
He's played one year too many. With the amount of holes currently in his game the Swans need him to be super accurate in front of goals (like the back half of 2022), but unfortunately his goalkicking has been poor also.
Dane Rampe (6/10)
Looked to be in good touch before his injury. Swans are missing his experience and leadership more than we perhaps thought we would. Needs to play 10 games in the back half of the year for the Swans to have any hope at a late finals charge.
Luke Parker (8.5/10)
Dependable as always. That suspension is really disappointing as without Mills, Parker is perhaps our most important player to drive our stoppage work. Has a purple patch round 5-8 where he had a claim to being the Swans best each week and has been a contributor every other week.
Justin McInerney (4.5/10)
Perhaps a harsh rating, but I think he's regressed massively from late 2021/early 2022. Pretty good against Carlton and Collingwood, but honestly those are the only 2 games from 11 that have been up to the standard the Swans need from him. Needs to improving his kicking and spacing as he seems to get caught in a position where teammates can't use him frequently. Hopefully the Carlton game gives him the confidence to bounce back in the back half of the season.
Angus Sheldrick (5/10)
Played out of position in his 2 appearances and hasn't really been given a chance to shine yet in the seniors. My rating could change very quickly if he gets the chance as he clearly has ability given his VFL form.
Tom McCartin (7/10)
Injury has curtailed what could have been a big season for Tom. His absences have really hurt the Swans.
Tom Hickey (6/10)
Tough to get form back after an injury in your 30s, but he's clearly a better tap ruckman than Ladhams. Carlton game was better than his first game back, so trending upwards.
Marc Sheather (4/10)
I liked what I saw from Sheather, but it's early days for him, and with the current injury he may not get another chance in 2023.
Matt Roberts (3/10)
Certainly has potential, but like Sheather, injury has slowed down the early progress in his career.
Joel Amartey (7/10)
He's worked out how to get more of the ball and is a very useful Forward/Ruck option now. His injury came just as he seemed set to explode. Hoping that he returns in 2023 and can build on that start.
Corey Warner (4/10)
Didn't get to do a lot in his first few senior appearances. Plenty of upside, but needs time in the twos to develop his game.
Paddy McCartin (NA/10)
I'm not going to give a rating on Paddy. Just really hoping he's OK, football is secondary to getting himself healthy.
Robbie Fox (8/10)
I love this guy. Does a lot of good things, and while he does make the occasional clanger, he is surprisingly effective as a rebounding defender on top of being one of the best 1-on-1 defenders at the club.
Lewis Melican (6/10)
I thought that the Pelican's career at the Swans was over. Not his biggest fan, but he came in and did a job in his first game for 2023. Like Wicks I'll need to see a greater body of work to be convinced by him, but he was an immediate upgrade on Gould (which may be more of an indictment on Gould sadly).
Jake Lloyd (7/10)
Continues to do his job week in, week out. He'll always have the same holes in his game, but as long as he continues to do the things he's in the team for well, he has a spot on the HBF locked in to quarterback the side.
Lachlan McAndrew (6/10)
Didn't expect to see him in 2023, but did as well as you could really expect. Still got a lot of development to do to become a starter, but there are some good signs and hopefully he learns a lot from this early taste.

2023.06.01 08:40 badillustrations Want to add a lot more blown insulation to low attic, but considered about blocking soffits

I would like to add a lot more blown insulation to our very low-pitch attic. It's about 3' at the ridgeline, so there's not a lot of space to maneuver. I've installed baffle vents in another house when the ceiling wasn't installed, but it's very hard to get to the soffits from the attic because the roof is so low.
Should I just abandon the idea of installing baffle vents? Can I just rely on big gable vents or a gable vent with a solar-powered fan? Or can I just routinely blow compressed air through the soffits outside to keep them clear of blown insulation?

My ceiling fan wouldn't turn on, i checked my switch with a multimeter but everything was okay. So I just ended up buying and installing a new one. While disassembly I noticed the capacitor was swollen.

2023.06.01 08:33 Actual-Drawing1852 Blue Magnolia Ego Death Trip Report (6 grams)

I've been having flashbacks and memories of my past shroom trip that really shattered my reality. To clarify, I think shrooms are a wonderful drug, I still take them, but with much more respect than I had before. I have recovered from this trip, and learned some lessons, but also got sent down a spiral of losing who I am as a person. I will try my very best to go into detail about my experience, but all of you definitely know there is no true way to word it, not to mention it's been almost a year... So, I'll try my best.
July, 27th, 2022. I was sixteen years old, approaching 17 in only a few days. I finally saved up enough money to buy the extremely promising-looking shrooms my plug was talking so highly about. I wasn't brand new to shrooms, but I wasn't seasoned in them either. I had two prior experiences to this trip, which all were amazing and didn't have a drop of bad energy, I was confident in my ability to handle a heavy dose of shrooms, but I was wrong. To preface, those past trips were 1.5 grams and 3.5 grams. All were done in a solo trip setting.
I met up with my plug, and I called the shrooms "Paul Bunyon" shrooms, due to how huge they were. They were massive, it was only two mushrooms, but their weight equaled 6 grams. I've never seen anything like it. I went home, and the whole day was eagerly waiting to have another amazing trip. I ate the mushrooms (paired with some watermelon to drown the taste) around 9-10 o clock, and from there, the delve into insanity began.
I was on a call with my childhood best friend, someone I trust with my life. He was high, so we were having a pretty laid-back conversation (as we usually do when I trip). I started feeling it hitting, like the carpet moving, the bed sheets moving, all of which were nothing like I'd ever seen. I had a feeling in my gut like something was gonna go wrong and that I probably made a mistake, but I ignored it.
I looked at the foot of my bed only to see a white energy-like figure appearing, it had a feminine energy. The best way I can describe how it looked is that of the 4th dimension handshake scene in Interstellar. I was showing my friend, who was on Facetime, and unsurprisingly he didn't see it.
From this point things start getting blurry to remember, my walls were covered in lizard eyes, and my room had a very ancient Aztec feel to it. Those energy figures were flying all around my ceiling, telling me a story almost. Using their energy to break apart, creating shapes and visions. I completely forgot about my friend, I think I told him "Hold on, they're trying to tell me something." I was having a pretty good experience, nothing too overwhelming, but certainly, the strongest trip I ever had. I kept hearing drums banging, almost like tribal music.
From this point, I was getting slightly overwhelmed, but I wasn't completely losing my shit yet. It felt like it was only getting stronger, and stronger. I sat back down at my desk, still completely rambling to my friend (who against my knowledge was asleep). The trip started taking place in my conscious, as if I was actually in my brain, looking at the thoughts physically. I started "morphing" into animals, like cats and lizards. I was just sending complete jibberish texts to all my friends, who were all asleep. I kept having weird visions like a humanoid cat jumping across a dark city's rooftop. The whole trip I was talking about where "they" would take me next.
I kept having these few-minute intervals where I would live my entire life as an animal, then reincarnate into a new one. I wasn't alone as the animal, I usually had loads of friends that were my species, taking place in a whole other world. It's not like I lived the life minute by minute, but it's almost like I was given the knowledge that I did in fact live that life. Things were, still, going well. Until I finally saw what I was doing.
I looked down and noticed I was scrolling through my text messages on my phone, but not just any messages, my family's texts, and my dad's texts. I unknowingly put complete jibberish in my texts drafts, even to some distant family members I haven't even spoken to in months. I snapped out of my trip's headspace for a moment, and that's when everything went wrong. Nothing on my phone made sense, if you've done a large amount of shrooms, you know what I mean. Everything was rearranged and in a different language. I started freaking out wondering if I actually sent any of those texts to my family, which luckily I didn't. At this point, it felt like the whole world was watching me, and I felt pure shame.
I still didn't know if I sent anything to my parents or family, so I was just waiting for the moment of my father walking in, and me embracing him due to being completely terrified. I had this feeling that everybody was worried about me and that I needed help. I started talking to my friend telling him I'm freaking out, and that's when I saw I wasn't on any call at all. The dive into madness started.
I can recount this part of the night decently well due to still having access to the conversation I had with my girlfriend. It's incredibly hard to read for me because I'm able to go back into the thought process and mindset I was in at that time. I want to add that this was part of the trip where I completely lost a sense of who I was, I was fighting it, trying to hold onto the blanket of reality we clutch so dearly onto, but it only led to a downward spiral. I was lost, I didn't know where I was, who I was, hardly even knew who my girlfriend was. It just felt like it was the only thing that kept me glued to reality.
12:56 AM
Me: this is so bad help please
1:02 AM
Girlfriend: whats wrong. how much did you take
1:04 AM
Me: i think im crazy now. will this stop
1:05 AM
Girlfriend: yes it will my love. pls listen to me. i dont want anything to happen
1:15 AM
Me: talk to me. tell me who i am
1:22 AM
Girlfriend: whats wrong
1:22 AM
Me: you’re here right. I DONT FUCKING KNOW
1:22 AM
Girlfriend: Im here, you're not crazy.
1:41 AM
Me: just say something. AM I ON DRUGS JUST ANSWER THAT. HELLO???
At this point, I would completely forget everything she would say, I was trapped in my mind and was fully convinced I was dead, as well crazy. I was terrified. Time didn't exist, seconds felt like years, maybe even a lifetime.
1:47 AM
Girlfriend: you’re alive im alive. yes im here
I kept convincing myself I was okay, often repeating that I need to chill out, but it would hit me over and over again that I was not okay, in fact, I was going crazy. Reality didn't exist, nothing existed. At this point, I got up from my desk and started walking around my room.
I looked in the mirror to only see my hair blowing, a fire behind me as if my whole life was in flames. I smiled. I kept pacing back and forth, going in and out of my bathroom (which is connected to my room). My room was completely rearranged, the furniture looked as if it was blobs and polygons. I looked into my dresser mirror to see me completely naked, almost resembling a centaur, it looked almost like an abstract drawing of a person. I called one of my friends since it was still decently early into the late night. I can't remember our conversation, I just remember that I was stressing out a lot about what I was saying, and what I sounded like. My friend's phone then died.
I opened Telegram to only be met with the most confusing mess of words I've ever seen. It looked as if the screen was duplicated, then spread out everywhere. I closed Telegram. I got up and walked into my bathroom, and then I felt what pure insanity felt like. It's like a switch turned on and my brain was overwhelmed and filled with the most complex and enlighting visions. The only vision I can remember is of a chameleon opening its mouth and letting out a long tongue. After this, I was completely sure I would never be the same again and would live the rest of my life in a psych ward. That's when the bigger issue happened. I was sure I was dead. I don't know when it hit me, or how, but after the psychotic visions, I thought I was dead. Nothing made sense, it was like I was on a mission to figure out what happened, or if I was still alive.
I texted my plug at around 4 AM. I asked him why he killed me.
Friends, family, myself it was all just an idea. It's like when you wake up and can't put your finger on a dream you just had. I picked up a family portrait that sat on my nightstand, only to be met with black silhouettes instead of my family. I was lost. Whoever my family was, I felt terrible for casting the pain of my death onto them. I couldn't believe it. Thoughts of why my plug would lace my shrooms and kill me completely made me understand the concept of corruption and evil.
I sat down on my bed and tried to make sense of everything. I was certain death was here because I heard the sound of my computer fan turning off, resulting in dead silence in the room. I still have the memory of watching my bright and colorful computer setup going jet black and turning off. My room was not how I knew it. I still had my phone in my hand, I viewed it as a vessel into the past. I started going through it, only seeing texts that were sent and received before my death. None were from the present. I received a text from the friend whose phone died. I was convinced it was God, or some being trying to contact me.
The text sent shivers down my spine, I thought I was alone to figure out everything that was happening, but it looked like someone, or something was trying to help me. My friend knew I was freaking out, so it explains why he sent the next thing.
"I love you."
I was so damn confused, I didn't understand anything. I started talking to myself, or rather my ceiling. Saying things like
"So you were here the whole time?"
"What's next?"
The most terrifying thing happened. I knew everything. I was given knowledge of everything. Everything just made sense. I accepted that I was dead. I was left to lay and soak in my insanity. I felt what eternity felt like, and every minute of it was spent alone. I would have done anything to go back, I was begging to forget the knowledge I obtained. It felt like my bedroom was the only thing that existed, that it was the afterlife. I then fully believed I was god.
I was convinced everyone, and everything was made by me, and that I got bored so I decided to experience life for myself. I started remembering important people that were in my life, like my best friend, and my girlfriend. I was convinced since they were my creation, I could turn them into gods themselves so I didn't have to live through this alone. This obviously didn't work out. My bed sheets were phasing through me, and my body started seizing to exist. I was energy.
I felt this overpowering feeling of being watched as if I really wasn't alone. I started talking to my ceiling, and I understood that I wasn't God, but at the same I was. It was as if God is everything, meaning I am God, and meaning you are God, we are all God. I laid there for what felt like an actual eternity, almost what infinite feels like. I ended up getting up and leaving my bedroom. It was around 5 am. My father was sleeping on the couch downstairs, and I could hear his snoring echoing through the house. I was convinced it was God, and my brain was telling me it was time to meet him. I then stopped myself and went back to my room. I turned on my computer, to be met with the welcome screen that contained my name. It felt as if a switch was flipped.
I went to Discord, and joined the first server VC I saw with people on a call. It was a few Russian guys. I asked if I was dead, and was met with pure aggression. It was beautiful. I began crying and falling onto my desk, feeling pure bliss that I was alive. My girlfriend woke up and called me, and the rest I don't remember.
What happened after? Well, I had a rough month. I was completely dissociated, believed I was crazy, and was convinced reality didn't exist. I had a few moments where I actually thought I really did die during that trip and that the present was fake. I eventually got past all of this, and I'm pretty content with life. What I'm getting at is shrooms are not a fun party drug, and it's not a drug to feel confident taking large quantities of. You need to give it the respect it deserves, and you need to be fully ready for what it will show and present to you. Just like real-life situations, some lessons are amazing, but some lessons will beat you down, and fully test you. In the end, you need to know that no matter what, you will learn something from it. Basically, be safe everyone, I don't want to see someone suffer like I did from this amazing plant. If you're thinking about taking shrooms, start small, and do it with someone you trust.

2023.06.01 08:16 Dracomies Things I bought in 2023: Things I Liked and things I didn't like and returned --

Hi there!
Just sending an updated list of things I've loved for quality of life.
But also things I didn't like and returned. I'll mark them below and put a quick explanation so you'll have a heads-up on them.


Fenix E03R v2.0 Keychain Flashlight
Learned about this flashlight from a recent Youtube video. But I love that it's simple to use and it's compact and powerful. Unlike the RovyVon A1, the buttons make SENSE. I didn't like the Rovyvon A.
Layrite Natural Matte Cream, 1.5 oz
Been experimenting with different pomades and I actually rather like this one! I've tried Suavecito, Reuzel, Hanz de Fuko, Old Spice, American Crew, Fix Your Lid, Dove Polishing Pomade, etc. But I actually like this one the best. I also like how it easily applies but it also easily washes off with water.
Ohropax Soft Foam Ear Plugs (10 Ear Plugs)
These are just earplugs. Some might say overpriced. But I love the little case that it comes with. Makes it fantastic for travel.
Swiffer Heavy Duty Refills, Ceiling Fan Duster, 11 Count
I love this ceiling fan duster. It extends out. It also turns entirely up or down and is adjustable. I just find it super handy for dusting. Best of all, when done, you just toss out the duster and pop in a new one. I love that you can do that.
3 Tier Mesh Utility Cart, Rolling Metal Organization Cart with Handle and Lockable Wheels, Multifunctional Storage Shelves for Kitchen Living Room Office by Pipishell (Black)
Not putting the direct link but just copy and paste that into Amazon. I love this thing! It's so useful! I basically cart this around to put my equipment and slide it from room to room. It's super easy to put together and makes it so much easier to move components around.
Elgato Wave Microphone Arm LP - Premium Low Profile Microphone Arm with Cable Management (Renewed)
Bought this on Amazon and can vouch for it. It's now replaced my RODE PSA1. I love how this holds my microphone in place but doesn't fill up the screen.
OGUNUOKI Shoe Covers Disposable Recyclable -100 Pack(50 pairs) 15.7'' Hygienic Shoe & Boot Covers Waterproof Non-slip Shoe Booties for Indoors
I haven't yet had a chance to test these but I bought these in case a plumber or handyman comes in our house with messy shoes. They can now just wear these covers for their shoes.
Sennheiser IE 200 In-Ear Audiophile Headphones
I absolutely love these headphones.
SKUPSY 20 Pcs Mini Clear Plastic Box Square Jewelry Earplug Pill Storage Box Case Container with Lid for Storage of Small Items, Crafts, Jewelry, Hardware
Love these for small compact storage of earplugs for travel or for just random things for travel.
Colgate Max Fresh Wisp Disposable Mini Travel Toothbrushes, Peppermint, 24 Count (Pack of 4)
I think these are a bit too much. But I took about 3 of them with me on a recent trip and they were awesome. It's just handy especially in airplanes.
Cuisinart 726-38H Chef's Classic Stainless 14-Inch Stir-Fry Pan with Helper Handle and Glass Cover
Love this thing. It's basically a stainless steel wok. So you just dump it in the dishwasher and it's clean. So its' easier to deal with than a carbon steel wok.

Fantastic little microphone

2023.06.01 07:29 C4gamer Control Casablanca fan

I recently got a new Casablanca fan and put a "universal" wifi controller on it and it did not behave properly. The fan and the light controls both controlled the light and did not move the fan at all. I tried switching the light and fan wires, but that didn't work at all. I tried a controller from another fan and had the same experience.
Apparently, the fan has its control built into the motor and can not be removed.
Has anyone had success working around this issue?

2023.06.01 06:31 peachismile Trip Report: First trip to Japan, 8 days Mid-May (Tokyo, Nagoya, Osaka, Nara, Kyoto)

Hi everyone! Just came back from my first trip to Japan. It has always been my biggest dream to visit Japan since I was a kid and I'm so glad I finally got the chance to go! The trip was actually planned by my boyfriend who booked everything for us in May, which is my birthday month.
Make Reservations Months in Advance! We made reservations for cafes, activities, restaurants, and even trains months in advance to make sure we would be able to do everything we wanted; we were not taking any risks and we were so thankful for our reservations. Make sure to do your research about when to make reservations months in advance.
Pack and Travel Light. Japan isn't really suited for traveling with big luggage to haul around. The trains can get incredibly crowded, you’ll probably be walking around and using stairs frequently, and hotel rooms can be very small at times. I recommend bringing a small rolling luggage and a large backpack and only pack what you need. Leave some room in your luggage for souvenirs or snacks to bring back.
Get Yen immediately at the airport or at the nearest convenience store! You will definitely need yen for a good amount of places in Japan. My boyfriend and I tried to load money in our Suica but the machine we used only accepted yen. Luckily we found a nearby conbini that accepted our debit card but we couldn't use our credit cards for some reason because the atm required a pin number. I might have accepted Mastercard but we both didn't have one.
Bringing comfortable shoes is a must in Japan! I brought comfortable shoes and my feet still hurt by the third day because we were walking and standing most of the days. I also recommend buying Lion’s Foot Patch if you find it at a conbini (I think we bought them at Lawsons) as the gel patch felt so good after a long day of walking!
Plan more days to relax. Although I have no regrets doing all the fun things we planned for our trip, I do wish we had more rest days in Japan, especially when our feet were so sore and we were so sleep deprived from waking up early. I wish we would have stayed a full 2 weeks in Japan and planned relaxing things to do in between our activities like visiting an Onsen and staying in a Ryokan.
Get to popular places early! My boyfriend and I would wake up at 5am to get ready and beat the morning rush hour and to get to popular places before the crowds showed up, it definitely worked out well for us.
Use hotel luggage transport or lockers when necessary. The luggage transport was especially useful when traveling long distances and carrying luggage through the trains would just be a hassle. All we had to do was just talk to our hotel clerk and give him the information for our next hotel we would be sending it to, and the clerk did the rest of the work. The luggage would usually arrive 2 days after we sent it. For the rest of the time, we just used lockers at train stations to store our luggage as we went sightseeing.
Trip Report:
Sunday May 14: Arrival and TokyoDisney
Arrival at Narita Airport
Arrival was simple, fast, and easy. For immigration and customs, we just had to scan our QR codes and passport and also take a picture.
Yen situation
As we arrived at Disney by bus, we wanted to use the coin lockers to store our luggage. The lockers only took suica (maybe yen too) so we tried to buy a suica but the machines only took yen (it didn't look like it took foreign cards). We tried walking to 7/11but it was closed so we ended up just walking to our hotel to drop off luggage. We ended up spending more than an hour walking everywhere and only had 2 hours for Disney.)
Tokyo Disney
The only ride we had time for was the beauty and the beast ride and it was amazing! We loved our experience inside the castle and we were amazed how fluid the animatronics were. If I could recommend one ride in Disney it would be this one. We did have time to go on one more ride so we went on the Monsters Inc ride which was just a shooter game and was just okay.
Monday May 15: Tokyo- DisneySea
Before we went to disneysea, we wanted to try some convenience store food so we went to Lawsons and Family Mart. The convenience store food was delicious! The onigiri tastes better than the ones in the US, the chicken in the hot food section was so juicy and delicious! Definitely recommend eating the hot foods and drinks. We tried getting money out of the ATM with our Visa credit cards but it didnt work so we used our debit card because the atm required a pin number.
Tokyo Disneysea
We arrived at Disneysea almost an hour early and we still had to wait in line. After the gates opened, we went straight to Journey to the Center of the Earth, but it broke down before we were able to ride it. The staff did offer us a fast pass to use for the ride later when it would be fixed. When the ride was working again, we headed back, used the fast pass and immediately got on the ride. It was a fun. fast, and short ride. All the rides at disneysea are pretty short and are moderately thrilling. Afterwards, we went to the submarine ride, 20,000 leagues under the sea, which was a unique experience and a very chill ride. Next was the Indiana jones ride; it was fun and a much better ride than the one in california. Then we went to Tower of terror which wasn't too scary. We also went to Soaring which actually has really long lines and wait time but it was a cool experience. The ride with the longest line was probably toy story mania; we decided not to go on the ride because of the long lines and we've been to the one in california. Kings triton castle was the most beautiful area to look at and explore, our favorite part of the area was exploring ariel's trinket room. Lots of rides were closed the day we went so we didnt get to ride on the spirits roller coaster, autopia, and explorers. My favorite food i tried there was the Ukiwa bun.
We also got to eat at Magellan which is one of the more expensive dining options. We didn't make a reservation until that very same day but we luckily able to reserve a spot in the morning. The food was tasty and it was my first time going to a fancier kind of restaurant that offered 3 course meal that were all tiny portions. I got the cheaper option (around $40 or $60, i cant remember) and it was very delicious. My boyfriend got the most expensive option (around $100) and it tasted terrible! I wouldnt recommend getting the most expensive option there.
Tuesday May 16: Tokyo-Harajuku
We took the trains to get to Harajuku and it was a little overwhelming trying to figure out how to find our train the first few times but, after a while, it became a very easy process. We used google maps to find the trains we needed to take. Then at the train stations, we looked for signs with the name of the train line we needed and followed the arrows and asked for directions when we needed extra help. Then we used our suica card to tap into the specific station we needed to be at to find our train. Next we looked for the PLATFORM NUMBER our train would be arriving at and followed the signs for that number. Once at the platform, we confirmed if we were at the right place by making sure the ARRIVAL TIME, PLATFORM NUMBER, and TRAIN LINE on the digital signs matched the one from our google maps. Make sure to follow train etiquette by stepping to the side to let people out of the train and putting your backpack in front of you if the train is really crowded.
At Harajuku station, we put our luggage in coin lockers for the day so we could explore. We went to a conbini, grabbed some food for breakfast and went to Yoyogi park to eat since nothing was open at 7am. After eating, we went to Meiji shrine for a bit, which is also near yoyogi park, and then headed back to harajuku so we wouldn't be late for our mipig reservations.
Mipig cafe was our favorite cafe and one of our favorite experiences in japan! The pigs were so loving and friendly, they came right up to us and laid on our laps after the staff put some blankets on us. They were adorable and as many as 2-3 pigs would come up to us and sit on our laps. Some pigs would even get aggressive with other piggies if you gave one too much attention. Some pigs started chewing on my dress so I had to get another blanket to hide my dress from being eaten.
After Mipig, we wanted to get some food. We tried Marian crepes, candied strawberries, and some small cafes. We visited Anakuma cafe and it was definitely an interesting experience. A bear hand would come out of hole in the wall and give us candy and a coin to put in a gacha machine and it would also play rock paper scissor with us.
Next stop was Hedgehog cafe which i wouldnt recommend only because I learned later that hedgehogs are nocturnal and they were sleeping most of the time we were there. We ended up leaving early because there was not much to do as we felt bad disturbing the little guys.
Afterwards we visited the Kiddyland store and I enjoyed the studio ghibli section but they also had kirby, pokemon, and sanrio merchandise.
Next we took a train to team labs, we got there early but we had to wait until it was closer to our reservation time before we could line up. After getting inside we had to put our shoes and backpacks in lockers so we could go through the water exhibition first. They offer shorts if you are wearing dresses as some of the exhibitions have mirror floors. I wasnt too into the water exhibition but I did like the lights exhibition and flower exhibition the best. Overall it was a cool experience and I got some amazing photos out of it.
Shibuya sky
Lastly we went to shibuya sky. We also couldn't get inside until our reservation time started. The elevator ride up was pretty cool as they played a video on the ceiling. They have some restaurants and cafes near the top, I wish I came earlier to try them but we were so tired I didnt want to stay too long. The top of shibuya sky was outside and it was cold (i wish i brought a sweater) but it was incredibly beautiful, especially at night. It's a nice place to relax and look at views. This was probably my favorite sky building out of the three i went (shibuya sky, umeda sky, and tokyo skytree).
Wednesday May 17: Nagoya-Ghibli Park
Ghibli park
We left early morning to get on the train and avoid morning rush hour. We ended up taking the Nozomi train to Nagoya. We bought our shinkansen tickets at the JR ticket booth. We recommend reserving seats as its only a couple yen more and gives you peace of mind knowing you get to choose your seats. We also grabbed some ekibens which were delicious, my favorite was the blue one with mt. fuji on it. Next we had to take a bus to ghibli park which was actually very hard to find. We had to ask for help to find it. To pay for the bus, you can use a suica card or yen to pay as you board the bus.
We arrived super early, and put some of our bags in the lockers. We went to lawsons nearby and bought a ghibli park book which features the exhibitions inside. We walked around the park a bit before we were allowed to start lining up for our reservation times. There are also no trash cans at ghibli park so make sure you bring a trash bag with you to take all your trash back with you.
Around 12pm we went inside and went straight to the first exhibition (Becoming characters in Memorable Ghibli scenes) and there was already a line to get in. Once we got in we took pictures with Noface from spirited away, ponyo, princess mononoke scene, and many more movie scenes.
The next exhibition we went to was the food exhibition (Delicious! Animating Memorable Meals). You can't take pictures in that area but it was cool to be able to interact in the kitchen spaces from your favorite movie scenes. Also, in the end of this exhibition, you can take pictures with totoro and the cat bus!
We visited the ghibli store next because I heard the lines can get rather long at the end of the day and I bought some merchandise from there.
Afterwards, we took pictures at the central staircase, the castle in the sky scene, and the scene with Yubaba.
Next, we took the elevator down to the bottom floor and took pictures in the arietty scenes, it was cool feeling so tiny while everything was supersized!
Lastly we went to the bakery to get some sandwiches. Unfortunately, the food does sell out and there were not a lot of choices left by the time we got there. The food we got was okay but nothing special.
Osaka: Ichiran ramen
After Ghibli park we took the train to Osaka. In Osaka, we lined up to get into Ichiran ramen. We ordered our ramen through a vending machine and it gave us our ticket to give to our server. We were seated in these small cubicle areas but we were also able to close the partition in between us so my boyfriend and I could share our table space together. I thought it was a unique dining experience; it was cool not having to say a single word to our server, and the food was also delicious too.
Thursday May 18: Osaka-Universal Studios Japan
Got to USJ an hour before it opened and there were still super long lines! As the gates opened up, we ran to nintendoland to make sure we got in. We went to toadstool cafe to get ticket reservations but they didn't open until 9am so we decided to take the single rider line for the mario kart ride, it was a bad idea. For some reason the single rider line still took us 30 minutes to complete and it felt like it was going slower than the regular lines. The mario kart ride was cool, it used like a VR headset and you were able to shoot shells at others but I really didn't understand what was going on.
Toadstool cafe
We went back to toadstool but all the tickets were gone, I tried talking to one of the workers if they would offer tickets later but I don't think he understood what i was saying. He actually just let me in the line after I asked a few times if they had anymore tickets for the afternoon. After waiting in line and ordering, we grabbed our drinks and table number and sat down at our table. The drinks were delicious! Definitely recommend. We also ordered some kind of mushroom pesto soup and it was bomb! We recommend that too since they don't offer it in the California Universal. We also got peaches cake for like $30 which is supposed to be for 4 people but just the 2 of us ate it. It was light and fluffy and we recommend getting it as they also dont offer it in the California Universal. The staff also came by and offered to take pics of us which was so nice.
Next we bought the limited edition wrist bands and started playing some of the mini games. We played about 3 games before we decided to leave nintendo land and check out the other areas because we also bought a reserved time to get back into nintendoland to use our fastpass for the yoshi ride.
We had a fastpass for the Jurassic park ride so we went on that next. Make sure you are prepared to get wet cause you will get soaked at the end. Then we went to Hogwarts and watched some of the shows they offered and grabbed a meatpie. We didn't stay long here as we have already been to Hogwarts in california. Next we got in line for the mario strawberry shortcake pancake and it was delicious light and fluffy! I think we also had a fastpass ride for jaws and that ride was actually really cooler than I expected . The next fastpass ride was for despicable me ride so we did that one too and it was actually better than the california version. And lastly we went back to nintendoland to use our reservation time and our fastpass for the yoshi ride. It was a cute slow ride but it had nice views of the park. I enjoyed it even though it was a kiddy ride. Lastly, we had the yakisoba shells and melon lassi and both were delicious
By this time our feet were so sore from walking for days so we left early to go rest at our hotel. I ended up being so sore and tired I just knocked out early. My boyfriend bought Lions Foot Patches from Lawson and put them on my feet while i slept. They felt so nice and cool on my feet. I recommed getting those foot patches while you're in japan.
We woke up for a late dinner and got some nearby mcdonalds. I'm not a fan of mcdonalds in the US but i wanted to try japan's mcdonalds to see if its better. I honestly didn't like the Japan Mcdonalds either even though it does taste different, I'm not sure what the hype is about with the japanese mcdonalds. I found that japan's convenience store chicken was much juicer and tasted better than the mcdonalds chicken.
Friday May 19: Kyoto-Fushimi Inari Taisha, Nishiki market, Ninenzaka
Fushimi inari taisha shrine
We got to the shrine early, maybe around 7am,and it was not very crowded but there were still people there. It was raining a bit so luckily i brought my umbrella, unfortunately my boyfriend did not, this would haunt him later. We took a picture of a map to see which way to go to reach the top as there are different routes you can take. It was a gradual climb up but my boyfriend really struggled as his feet still hurt from the days before. The gates were beautiful and there were so many areas to look at and explore as we climbed. Unfortunately my boyfriend was tired and we were in a time crunch so we didn't explore every area but I wish I could have because this was the most beautiful place I had visited in Japan. As we neared the top it started to rain more heavily and my boyfriend ended up getting soaked. The top of the shrine was anticlimactic, but we took our picture and headed back down. On our way we stopped by the little stores and bought an umbrella for my boyfriend which we were thankful they had some. As we went down the steps in the rain, my boyfriend accidentally slipped and fell on his back pretty badly. He ended up with a deep gash on his finger as the blood gushed all over the floor. Luckily I had some tissues to wrap up his finger. We headed back down the mountain and bought some bandaids at a conbini store. We also bought some strawberry daifuku at a small little shop and it was the best daifuku I ate in Japan. The mochi was a great consistency and the strawberry was the juiciest strawberry i ever had. I wish i had bought more from there.
Nishiki market
We went to Nishiki market around 11am and it was super crowded while the path was so small and narrow. We literally had to push through the crowds at times because there were so many people, it was not a fun time for me. I also ended up losing my suica card somewhere around there. I'm also not the biggest fan of seafood but my boyfriend is so he ended up eating most of the food. We ended up not staying long for all those reasons and ended up going to a nearby store that sold all kinds of different food which I liked a lot better because there weren't crowds of people there.
Next we walked to Ninenzaka which was like a 30 minute walk. It was still raining so we were just looking for a place to stop and eat for a bit. We went to Kudamono cafe and got the cloud dessert. It was pretty good and fluffy and the dessert looked so pretty. Afterwards, we had room for more dessert so we tried Meccha cafe. We ordered the matcha tiramisu and the parfait. The matcha tiramisu was probably the best dessert i had in Japan, I definitely recommend getting it! We also visited Donguri and bought more totoro merchandise. At this point, my boyfriend was so tired and soaked from the rain we decided to go back to the hotel. We took the bus this time and it was packed! We had to push people just to get out.
Saturday May 20: Kyoto, Nara, Osaka
Arashiyama bamboo forest
We got to the bamboo forest early at 7am, there were a few people there but not too many like later in the day. I recommend going super early to beat the crowds. The bamboo forest was super short but it was still a cool area to check out and plus there are many things to do around the area. We walked to a nearby park next to a big river and the views were absolutely gorgeous! Kyoto is really breathtaking. After walking a while and checking out the scenery we headed back to the bamboo forest to board the Sagano Romantic Train.
Sagano Romantic Train
We had reserved seats for the Sagano Romantic Train and the views from the train were amazing! Get there early because you might have to do some minor paperwork stuff to print out your ticket if you reserved in advance. The reserved seating we had was in a train with no glass windows so you can just feel the air rushing through your hair as the train moves. Truly it was a memorable and fun experience with a lot of breathtaking nature views. After coming back to our initial departure spot on the train, we left for Monkey Park.
Monkey Park
We rushed over to Monkey park and by this time the streets of kyoto became much crowded as we had to dodge pedestrians left and right. We paid a fee to get into the monkey park and hiked our way up to the park, there were a couple benches to take rest if needed. At the top, you can see monkeys running around and playing with one another. We went inside a little building where you can buy food for the monkeys and feed them through windows covered with a mesh net. We didnt stay long as we had a full schedule planned for the day so we left to go catch a train to Nara but we did eat some amazing street food on the way. I don't know why but the street food in Kyoto was so delicious, the best I had in Japan probably.
We arrived at Nara from the trains and went straight to Nakatanidou for some mochi and it was packed with people! It was even hard trying to get a space to watch them make the mochis. It was cool to experience the mochi making and to taste the mochi but I probably wouldn't go back there again because of the crowds.
Nara Park
After the mochis, we walked to Nara park and it was amazing! There were so many deers and they were so friendly and polite! This was my favorite part of nara for sure. For a few yen, we bought some crackers and found some deers that would bow everytime they wanted a cracker, it was too cute. The deers were literally everywhere, on the streets and even at temples.
There were lots of shrines around the area but we came pretty late so most of them were closing up but the ones we did see were pretty neat to look at. We also ate some udon at a little restaurant next to a small lake, the views of the lake were amazing from inside the restaurant.
After Nara, we came back to Osaka and the streets were so crowded at night. I tried shopping at don quixote but there were just to many people to weave through that I just decide to give up and try a 10 yen cheese bread near the store. The line was kind of long but I decided to try it out, it was actually really big, not that good, and made my stomach hurt. I would not be getting that again haha
Matsusakagyu Yakiniku Restaurant
My boyfriend had reserved this place for Thursday but we were so tired that day that we decided to cancel our reservation. We decided to try to go in person on this day to see if we could get in. We were lucky that they had a spot available and we ordered a platter of A5 wagyu beef for more than $100 US dollar. Im not really a meat person but the beef was very tender and delicious and the service was very good. They took pictures of me and my boyfriend and gave me free ice cream for my birthday.
Sunday May 21: Tokyo-Joypolis, Akihabara, skytree
The next morning we took the Nozumi back to Tokyo and headed straight to joypolis. We got tickets that allowed us to go on pretty much any ride there. Joypolis was small but had some interesting and unique rides and attractions. My favorite was the rhythm rollercoaster where you play rhythm games on a small roller coaster. We also played a VR Laser tag which was actually pretty fun even though I dont really play VR. There was an Attack on Titan walkthrough attraction that was completely in Japanese so I didnt understand any of it but it had some very cool props inside. The other interesting attraction was a scary house, where you have to get into these lockers and a girl comes and bangs on them and then the lockers flip you back horizontally. It wasnt that scary but it was pretty unique.
Next we went to Akihabara just to check out but we were actually super tired so we didnt stay long. We went to a couple stores but to be honest it was actually kind of boring as I am no longer as into anime as I was when I was a kid so we ended leaving akihabara fairly quickly.
Tokyo Skytree
Instead of going to akihabara I kind of wish I just went to the tokyo skytree shopping area because there was so much cool things to do there! They have a pokemon center, a kirby cafe, studio ghibli shop, and so many stores to shop or restaurants to eat at! We also went to the top of skytree but it honestly wasnt worth the money as the very top didnt have that much stuff and we just had to wait in these super long lines to get both up and down the skytree. After the skytree, we found a yakitori spot and ate some beef skewers which were delicious. We wished we went restaurant hopping more as there were just so many places to eat in this area.
Monday May 22: Ueno Park and Departure
Ueno park
Before we left to the airport, we visited Ueno park which was only a few blocks away from our hotel. It had a beautiful lake which was covered with some sort of lily pads. The park was pretty big and it was nice just walking around the area.
Life Mart
We decided to stop at Life Mart to get some food before we left to the airport. The Meat was so delicious and was so cheap, and it had different options from conbinis. We took train back to Narita Airport, this train I think you have to reserve in advance.
Narita airport
Going back through immigrations and customs and tsa was super easy and fast. We recommended getting lunch or snack early because there were pretty long lines as our departure time approached.
We also bought Tokyo Banana for souvenir snacks to bring back to our families, its very delicious!
In the end, visiting Japan was better than I could ever imagine and I just cant wait to go back! Please let me know what your favorite parts of Japan are and what other areas in Japan I must check out!

2023.06.01 06:13 Sorcerer888 Hot Apartment

I live in an apartment in a 2nd and 3rd floor unit. It has huge windows. My bedroom and office are on the 3rd floor. My main wall faces the west and has huge, 10 foot windows. It’s also a brick wall so in the evenings it just turns into a brick oven. This wall is the outside wall and it’s the wall to my bedroom, living room, and office. It’s hot. I put up light-blocking shades, and it’s still hot. It’s even hot in here at night. I have a few fans going at all times (not ceiling fans because evidently property companies don’t install them anymore). My electric bill is so high. The AC runs all the time and it’s not cool in here but the AC is working as far as I can tell. I think it’s just a weak AC. Also, I’m fairly conscious about my electric usage. I was looking into portable AC, but the windows don’t open…I’ll save my thoughts on that for that later. So I can’t vent the hot air or drain the condensate. What can I do? I’m home all the time for work and school purposes and it can’t be an oven in here all the time.

2023.06.01 06:12 The_Ape_Enthusiast I found a strange novel at a used book store. I don’t like how it ends.

Developer's commentary: This post got removed from nosleep after about two days for some bullshit reason. I think you can still see the original post directly below this but not the body of the post, so I'm reposting it here for completion's sake. One day when I'm dead and gone (probably killed by one of my fans), people might want to go back and read these stories without having to click the link in my profile. Yeah, that's something they'll definitely want to do because I'll be really rich and famous by that point. Okay, the actual story starts after this sentence.
On the weekends, I like to go to used book stores. I know that the internet has kind of made books obsolete, but there’s just something I enjoy about walking around and looking at all the books people have read even if I never plan on reading them myself. Sometimes you see something that just looks absolutely terrible and you wonder to yourself who the author actually thought their intended audience was going to be. Case in point, look at the horror genre. The used book stores are lined shelf to shelf with shitty horror novels that are all essentially just variations on the same few ideas. The instant something actually original comes out a hundred hack writers fart out their own version of it, and then any charm the original idea had is completely gone.
To be honest, it’s ridiculous to me that something like the horror genre even exists in fiction. I don’t know how anybody could possibly read a story and then get scared by it. Movies, at least there are audio and visual components. I think I only got scared by a movie one time, anyway. It was this Japanese movie called Noroi. The first half has these fake news reels that have this vibe where it’s like something you’d see on some obscure website in the early 2000s. There were all sorts of strange videos and images that you would find back then and they would always have some kind of backstory attached to them and you were never really sure how much of it all was real. I suppose that’s what made it scary, was that uncertainty.
Anyway, that’s why I like going to used book stores. Sometimes I even buy stuff while I’m at them. Usually what I’ll do is I’ll just pick out books at random, skim a few pages or read the back cover or something like that, and then see how I feel about the whole thing. I’ll take my chances every once in a while. The books only cost a few bucks, anyway, so if they end up sucking it’s not a huge deal. I read this one book that was like an encyclopedia of racial slurs and for each one it gave like the origin and its historical context and some examples of its usage. At first I thought it had been written as a joke but there was way too much effort put into it for it to be a joke. Also, it was written in the 1980s, back when people were really serious about being racist towards each other. Even if I don’t condone the contents, it was an interesting read.
Now, on the particular occasion that I’m describing I was going through the general fiction section and had pulled out a book titled “A Simple Man” by a guy named Lance Jack. The back cover didn’t really tell me much about the book, so I flipped to a random page and started reading. It seemed to be describing the morning routine of the protagonist, a man named Claude. He woke up, took a shower, ate breakfast, and then went off to work. I skipped ahead a bit. Claude was getting fired from his job. I skipped ahead a little more. Claude was looking for a new job but couldn’t find anything that appealed to him. I suppose that sounds boring, but it had been a while since I’d purchased anything at a used book store and this particular book was giving off some pretty good vibes. So, I guess I should say that I bought it on a whim. It was only two dollars, anyway, so I wasn’t too worried about my investment not paying off.
I started reading the book when I got home. It opened with Claude’s childhood in southeastern Oregon. At school, he was too shy to make friends and spent most of his free time reading and watching movies. He eventually managed to fall in with a group of guys that were kind of like him, but not really. I’m sure you know how those things go. After high school he went to college and studied computer science. He didn’t love computer science or anything, but he also didn’t dislike it enough to change majors. He just kind of put up with it. After he graduated he moved on to different IT jobs, and that’s about as far as I managed to read. Obviously a lot more happened than that, but I’m just giving a sort of broad outline of things.
As I read the book, I began to notice a lot of strange – I guess you would call them “coincidences”. Well, I was born in southeastern Oregon, too, and in the same year as Claude – 1992. The general pattern of his life matched mine thus far, but more concerning were the specifics. When Claude was 7, he was run over by a golf cart and broke a leg. When he was 9, he played Ocarina of Time and developed a sexual attraction to Princess Ruto. When he was 14, he tried asking his crush out on a date and then threw up on her, and then for the rest of the year everyone called him “Barf Boy”. When he was 17, he was tricked into going to prom with one of his bullies who had dressed as a woman, who revealed the truth just as Claude was going in for a kiss. When he was 20, a bear attacked him while he was hiking and he was forced to kill it using a makeshift spear. And so on. All of these things happened to me, too, exactly as they happened to Claude. I was stunned, to say the least. This was my life that I was reading. The only difference was the names of the characters.
I didn’t pick the book up again until about a week later. Something like that takes a while to really come to terms with. After a few days, though, I started to get curious. I mean, everything I’d read so far matched my life perfectly, but if I kept reading I would eventually reach today, and everything after that would be the future. Would those things happen, too? I mean, the book had just been lying on that shelf for who knows how long. When had it even been written? There was no publication date, and I couldn’t find any information about the author online. I had to keep going, just to make sure. Just to see for myself.
And so I read, and before long I found the point where the past and the future split away (colloquially, this place is known as the “present”). Claude was trapped in a state of melancholy because he didn’t find his job fulfilling. He didn’t have much going on outside of work, either. Anybody he’d once considered a friend had moved away long ago, and he found it hard to muster the energy to go out and meet new people. Then, one day, he was suddenly fired from his job for “performance issues”. I vaguely remembered that part from when I’d first skimmed the book, and while I was definitely in a state of melancholy I had not yet been fired from my job. So, I told myself that I would put the book away and try not to think about it, and if I got fired in the same way Claude did then I’d really freak out.
It happened a couple of months later. I was called into the boss’ office and given the same speech that Claude was given in the book. I was a valuable employee but lately my performance just hadn’t been up to par and, unfortunately, they were replacing me with someone else. Something like that. Well, I knew from the start how this whole thing was going to go, so I just sat there and took it. There were other things on my mind.
Once I was back at my apartment, I pulled the book out of its hiding spot and spent a long while just staring at it. I guess this is something that everybody thinks about at some point or another – if you could know the exact day you would die, would you want to? Maybe some things aren’t worth knowing. Maybe they are. Staring at the book, it was hard to really say which side I was on. I supposed that it wouldn’t hurt to read ahead a little. To be honest, my life sucked, so if I knew I had something to look forward to in the future, maybe that would cheer me up. Maybe I’d run into the woman of my dreams while looking for eggs at the grocery store. Maybe the NFTs I’d sunk so much money into would suddenly become profitable and I’d never have to work again. Maybe anything would happen to get me out of this mental rut I’d been in for who knows how long.
Once again I read, onward and onward, chapter after chapter, waiting for something exciting to happen. And then, the book was over. Claude died alone in his apartment, the same apartment he’d lived in his entire adult life, at the age of 63. Nobody mourned for him, nobody cared, and nobody was even aware that he’d ever existed. I couldn’t believe it. I’d read a lot of books in my time, but this one was by far the most boring. It was depressingly boring. In that moment, a deep sense of dread overwhelmed me and I wanted to scream out to someone, but I didn’t because there was nobody to scream out to. This was my life, and all that lies ahead is a void filled with mindless work and people I can’t stand to be around and a stinging desire to try to make things better. The truth is that things will never get any better. That’s what it says in the book, after all.
I spend a lot of time these days lying in bed and staring up at the ceiling. I tell myself that if I can just do something spontaneous, something that goes against what’s in the book, I’ll prove to myself that my life isn’t bound to its pages. But when I think of going out and meeting people or trying something new, I can’t convince myself to follow through. Why is that? It feels like I have writer’s block, only in my brain. Maybe I could try joining something like a book club, I say to myself. Where? How? Which? Would I even enjoy it? Would I even have the energy to go there? Would I even like any of the other people there? Would they like me? Answer one question and two more pop up, like some kind of fucked up verbal hydra. I suppose that some people can ignore all that shit and just go for it, but I can’t.
Sometimes I watch movies to try to hype myself up. You know the one by the guy that made Heat, where Tom Cruise is the bad guy? He gives this little speech to the protagonist, tells him that sitting around and waiting for his dream to come will just end up with him wasting his life away. When the movie’s over I think to myself yeah, it’s time to go out there and do something! My dream is waiting out there and I need to go grab it! But then I wonder to myself what my dream even is. I suppose there’s nothing like a dream inside me, just a cold, dark longing to exist among others like me. Does that count as a dream? I read through the book again, looking for a hint, but Claude is just the same as me. He lays in bed and wonders why his brain’s the way it is. Claude in ten years is no different from the Claude of today, who is no different from the Claude in twenty.
With each day comes a little more dread. Everything that’s happened since I found that book has matched it perfectly, continues to match it perfectly. I’m marching towards an inevitable conclusion, one that’s already been written out for me. Maybe the only thing I can really do is learn to accept my fate. Maybe instead of living in fear I can live in quiet complacency like a barn animal inside its pen. Be honest, what else could a guy like me possibly do?

2023.06.01 06:11 Sorcerer888 Large Windows Facing the Sun - I’m Hot

I live in an apartment in a 2nd and 3rd floor unit. It has huge windows. My bedroom and office are on the 3rd floor. My main wall faces the west and has huge, 10 foot windows. It’s also a brick wall so in the evenings it just turns into a brick oven. This wall is the outside wall and it’s the wall to my bedroom, living room, and office. It’s hot. I put up light-blocking shades, and it’s still hot. It’s even hot in here at night. I have a few fans going at all times (not ceiling fans because evidently property companies don’t install them anymore). My electric bill is so high. The AC runs all the time and it’s not cool in here but the AC is working as far as I can tell. I think it’s just a weak AC. Also, I’m fairly conscious about my electric usage. I was looking into portable AC, but the windows don’t open…I’ll save my thoughts on that for that later. So I can’t vent the hot air or drain the condensate. What can I do? I’m home all the time for work and school purposes and it can’t be an oven in here all the time.

These cutting-edge technologies provide faster and more efficient shipping and delivery choices, enabling logistics companies to overcome traditional obstacles such as traffic congestion and particular constraints. Delivery times and expenses can be minimized through these advancements.
Route Optimization Software -
Implementing route optimization software can immensely benefit logistic companies as it assists firms in devising the most efficient routes for their delivery vehicles. This, in turn, results in reduced fuel consumption, overall lower.
Internet of Things (IoT) -
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a new technology that has opened up opportunities for the supply chain, such as reducing costs and delays. IoT sensors are used in logistics to track the movement of goods in real-time. This allows logistics companies to monitor the condition of the goods, such as temperature and humidity, during transportation. IoT continues to impact the future of logistics, allowing for a more accurate in-transit visibility and delivery of goods, from cell phones and ceiling fans to cars.

2023.06.01 05:30 MarblesAreDelicious Downward grade on bath exhaust duct

I’m building a half-bath (toilet & sink) in my basement and my local code requires an exhaust fan to be installed.
I had to fur down the ceiling with 3/4” lumber because there are surface-mounted pipes running along the joists. As a result, it looks like there won’t be any downward grade for my exhaust duct. The outside hole will be covered with an end cap and possibly a screen. How bad is this and what can I do to remedy this so it could pass an inspection?

2023.06.01 05:22 Avatarkrishna Title: The Third Eye' s Vision

I did not know it would take me 3 days to write 3-4 pages. It was time to shed the skin of uncertainty, and embrace depth of field, and 3 dimensional characters, and sense of professionalism. Enough time was wasted in uncertainty and procrastination.:
Title: The Third Eye' s Vision Author: Das, Krishna Chandra
Section 1 done on may 19 of 2023
Section 1 of Chapter 1:"Birthright's Mantle, Outcast's Shackles: The Opus of Nirvaaṇa"
Section 1 of Chapter 1:"Birthright's Mantle, Outcast's Shackles: The Opus of Nirvaaṇa"
(Beginning of Page 1)
(Character monologue)
Credits. Credits. Credits. The almighty and powerful Credits... The all-powerful Universal Credits: for a share of which we are willing to make the ultimate sacrifice. With unwavering dedication, I assume a tranquil meditation pose, directing my thoughts towards the inner realms, where my focused mind connects with the ethereal vision of my third eye. Through this heightened state of awareness, I have clandestinely observed and meticulously absorbed the whispered conversations and subtle nuances of numerous gatherings on various occasions within this mothership.
Some humanoids had invested their life savings in renting a ship to join a fleet and gain access to strategic extraction sites. Those less fortunate purchased a share of a ship with ten other crewmates, agreeing to receive a percentage of the profits. Speaking of shares, the mothership claimed a 40 percent cut from each fleet, providing flawless protection, efficient travel time, and unlimited food from its internally built vivarium. All in exchange for a share of the Universal Credits, the currency that governs our worlds.
I could write endless pages defining the term universal-credits. However, there was a time when I despised such material attachments. I was content in my dim and dreary cave. Over time, though, desperation grew from poverty, intimidation, and sorrow. Perhaps now, materialism has seeped into my/our minds, intertwining with our breath and life force. Given the current risky conditions of deep space, we are willing to risk our lives for a taste of the almighty Universal Credits.
As I delve deeper into thought experiments of risks and rewards, my mind becomes flooded with unwanted negative thoughts. Horrific news and rumors dominate my consciousness. Amongst many, one piece of news is particularly disturbing and recent. Despite deep meditations, I cannot pinpoint the source of this dark presence even with my third eye. Perhaps it is a synthetic species or an unknown race echoing the sirens of death, destruction, and doom. These rumors always make me sick. Recently, there has been an abundance of them. On the day of our great embarkment, a tip circulated claiming that an unknown source emitted a red flare, simultaneously annihilating five motherships with one single slash. Allegedly, this powerful flare not only disintegrates objects it touches but reduces them to nothingness by a rapid continual process of subatomic level evaporation.
The Vidyadhaaras, the fortunate ones, have been sanctioned by all other humanoids. In return, they have responded with an iron curtain, promising annihilation or enslavement to any species that ventures into their space. I am no expert on ethics, but one thing is certain: the Vidyadhaaras race are exceptionally fortunate. Some possess an extra third hand and naturally gemstones studded body at birth, and most are born with unlimited credit encoded in their DNA, in the form of a wish-fulfilling stone.
The dark blue-skinned manus of Shha-taM.Bha-gyaṃ display cunning charisma in these high-risk, high-reward expeditions. Yesterday, one boisterous, sapphire-backed individual, fueled by intoxicating beverages, rambled on about the statistical probabilities. In his mind, there was a red line in the depths of space, where the chances of falling into flare of nothingness stood at 60 percent. Yet, he believed the rewards outweighed the risks.
Section 2: Chapter 1:"Birthright's Mantle, Outcast's Shackles: The Opus of Nirvaaṇa"
MAY 25, 2023
(Beginning of Section 2)
The perplexed humanoid novices were both pitiful and at times detestable. I often paid little attention to their groups, always distancing myself from them, I even practiced precise isolation from stepping into the very shadows they cast, as they aimlessly scurried around the mothership, displaying a blatant state of confusion. Despite the well-lit corridors, hallways, and communal areas, they seemed utterly clueless about their next destination. With their invisible novice insignia proudly worn, they unwittingly attracted one another, creating an amusing spectacle of automated alliances, like molecular compounds.
Unfortunately, a significant portion of these individuals would never have the opportunity to find out the hidden areas and witness the marvels of the state-of-the-art artificial biomes, a place perfectly suited to shield one's gaze from their juvenile countenances. Sadly, for most of them, a grim fate awaited. I can’t protect everyone; I can’t protect each individual. It is a sad fact.
(End of character's monologue)
The dark-skinned Rudra eventually ended his inner monologue in mumbling with a long sigh. At last, he slowly opened his eyes to transition respectfully from sacred meditation to reality, moving cautiously from his meditative state to reality state. In fact, it was a sign of respect to his meditation, his life long practice. By employing simple breathing techniques, which included deep inhalation, holding the breath until reaching an uncomfortable limit, and exhaling deeply. Therefore, he repeatedly practiced the same sequence that awakened his mastery of meditation, from his very young age.
The Rudra then drank from his golden water flask, only after clearing his throat by gurgling five times once, in his customary manner. Then, he uttered the syllable 'svaa-dhaa' and dropped a portion of water on the ground as a mark of respect to his forefathers. He often mumbled similarly, whenever he entered a partial meditative state during eavesdropping; and other universal exploration through his ethereal visions, with the aid of his third eye. When he remained silent during meditation, it simply meant he was deeply immersed in self-exploration during his profound meditative state. In between deep and partial meditation, he only uttered varied two sacred syllables that held deep meaning in his culture, the Rudrakind culture.
The dark-skinned Rudra was dressed in a loincloth, decided to plunge into the artificial lake of the artificial lust rainforest biome. The rainforest biome extended enough to create horizon between artificial lights and ceiling. The intense hot and humid climate was perfectly soothing for his race. The Rudra felt rejuvenated to maximum. It was covered with towering trees, lush vegetation, and a rich diversity of plant and animal species. It receives ample rainfall, creating a humid and moist environment that supports the growth of limited species. Within this captivating biome, the intricate web of life thrives in a symphony of colors, sounds, and interconnected relationships. Furthermore, it was the source of vivarium, which caused abundance of food for the mass mothership dwellers.
The Rudra submerged his body in the crystal-clear water while observing the gathering of Quaziriths in the distance, near the lush formation of natural juice producing flowers and plants. As he massaged his muscular body, he displayed a wide and medium physique, attractive and handsome, with dreadlocked hair on the reflection of clear water. Occasionally, he touched his forehead and adjusted his red hairband to cool off his forehead. Although he detested wearing the headband, it was for his own security, to conceal his racial identity. He continued to observe the gathering of two-legged birds called the Quaziriths, which had beautiful golden feathers and were devoid of eyes. They surveyed their surroundings with the aid of their flapping wings through their ethereal and sonar perceptions. Furthermore, their flapping wings creating an eye-pleasing luminescent display even more gracefully in sunlight. With their long tongues, they sucked nectar from flowers and juices flowing from fallen fruits scattered on the ground, it was their daily routine. At one point, some of them began to quarrel, which made the Rudra chuckle with a strong negative sigh.
The quarrels of Quaziriths reminded him of his own Rudrakind, evoking a sense of envy toward the Quaziriths, that led to another deep, humming sigh withdrawn from him. In contrast, here Quaziriths were welcomed with open arms, yet his Rudrakind were not. He did not belong here legally.
As Rudra, 37 years old, expert at pondering, delved deep into his mind, he remembered his home planet name Ugra-loka, which was breathtaking from sunset until dawn. During the scorching afternoons, they sought shelter in their caves as the intense heat and contrast made them angry and uncontrollable in environments outside of caves. The Rudrakind were naturally born with a blissful and destructive "third eye" and practiced asceticism throughout their lives. They were content with small portions of food, as they practiced always controlling their senses. The mastery of the third demanded outmost priority. The children who did not obey such rules were outcasted in extremely remote places. In the event that they may cause extreme destructions. The fact is, only fraction of their children opened their third eye, prematurely before the age of sixteen.
The Rudrakind resided in cool caves that provided access to crystal-clear water, pouring out from complex inner spring systems. During the intense heat of the season, they ventured into more intricate underground cave levels, which even extended twenty levels downward, it had been built by their ancestors throughout many generations. Beyond the twenty level, there were only impenetrable rocks.
The Rudrakind practiced agriculture in open fields and sunbeam caves, where perfect sunlight seeped through cracks, creating a beautiful environment. The sunbeam caves where they also kept their pure red glowing cattle. The Rudras were non carnivorous. Therefore, they did not eat their cattle. In defiance some new generation of clans practiced carnivorism due to scarcity of foods, which justified their actions. The pure followers could go on for days with just drinking water.
The sunbeam caves held the utmost sanctity for the Rudrakind as they represented extraordinary and otherworldly environments. According to ancient beliefs, the sunbeam caves were shaped by the divine gaze of their almighty creator. The open sky within these caves symbolized the escape of sacred smoke from lit altars. Childrens and females drew sacred two-word syllables around the contour of sunbeam with chalks on the ground. At these altars, they would offer portions of their edible resources or sometimes non-edible valuable possessions as a tribute to their almighty creator and forefathers. Surprisingly, they could not recall the name of their creator, nor did they possess the knowledge of the sacred collections of their cherished short syllables, all of which were communicated in pairs of two syllables. Certain ancient declarations asserted with certainty that the combination of these unknown short syllables constituted the names of their long-forgotten god.
Over time, as indifference grew among the hierarchies within the Rudrakind, divisions between clans, and the destructive acts of superpowers flaunting their superiority, the values of their ancient culture were eroded, leading to mass extinctions of their race. Even today, some Rudras continue to engage in internal conflicts, driven by a lingering thirst for vengeance fueled by an unforgivable past. Therefore, it was too easy to forgive the past and shake hands through diplomacy. Consequently, it is disturbing to witness recently how few resorted to primitive weapons such as stones and pickaxes, equipped with handles made of strong superdense alloy, forged from the heat of their very third eye’s beam with great precision. However, they refrained from employing their beam of dissolution to crisp one another. The use of such power against their own kind was considered a highly demeaning act, resulting in complete disownment by all Rudrakind clans.
Amidst these ongoing events in Ugraloka, the Rudra in ritualistic bathing process, noticed a male and female Quazirith gracefully separating themselves from the flock, away from the quarrel. The male possessed a vibrant green emerald beak, while the female exhibited a naturally formed rose quartz stone. The pirates, often driven by their insatiable desires, extracted these rose quartz stones and sold them at exorbitant prices on the shadow market, only after indulging in the savoring consumption of Quazirith meat. However, none dared to abduct female Rudras, who possessed the power to reduce their enemies to ashes with their fiery abilities.
The Rudra continued with his ritualistic bathing process, all the while observing the Quazirith couple. Memories of his fiancée, Astrondra, flooded his mind, and he whispered her name, his voice choked with longing and accompanied by frequent pauses. Astrondra possessed remarkable control over her soft voice, complemented by a well-developed physique and an array of facial and hand expressions, her true complexion reminiscent of a chocolate cherry cat's eye. The Rudra yearned to protect her and whisk her away from the planet Ugraloka, despite the circumstances that labeled him, his Rudrakind, and the Vidyadhaaras as dangerous; they were ordered to remain within their own respective system. In fact, their mere presence instilled fear in other humanoid species, leaving none feeling secure.
In contrast, the Vidyadhaaras enjoyed access to numerous habitable planets teeming with taiga and rainforest biomes. Moreover, aided by infinite reserves of Quantumite, they effortlessly traversed their system with remarkable ease. Not to mention their wish-fulfilling stones, inherent to their very being. In fact, these stones granted them the power to manipulate any physical environment, traverse realms, and create inorganic objects at will—without even requiring Quantumite. However, they chose to refrain from extensively utilizing their all-powerful birthright stones, as such usage shortened their overall lifespan. However, this Vidyadhaaras being wouldn’t shelter his kind nor his beloved.
The most peaceful and beautiful beings with blue-posterior skin from the planet Shha-taM!' Bha-gyaṃ stood as the only reliable refuge for the Rudrakind; only if any race could prove their F'aay-doma to their supreme leader, the Manukind will welcome them with open arms. He envisioned a prosperous future for his fiancée Astrondra in that mentioned planet and his yet to be born progeny, with the assistance of his humanoid friends possessing lapis lazuli posterior- who were known as the main founder of shadow market.
At the age of 37, this Rudra had traversed a remarkable journey, eventually finding his place aboard this mothership, his spaceship is one of the hundred vessels comprising the Shha-taM!' Bha-gyaṃ fleet. His banner proudly displayed the perfectly aligned seven moons of Shha-taM!' Bha-gyaṃ, further solidifying his influence. As he had proved his F'aay-doma to these humanoid inhabitants, none among the Manukind would ever dare to unveil his racial identity. He had become the captain of his own spaceship, which was a testament to his accomplishments and the acceptance he had gained through his F'aay-doma achievement.

2023.06.01 05:17 lurkinlog Lights turning on by themselves in the house. Is this an electrical issue?

My partner and I like to joke about it being a ghost… but I’m starting to wonder what actually causes the lights in our house to randomly turn on by themselves.
It’s not limited to a specific room, but it typically happens in our dining room and living room. Sometimes the fan turns on with the light, sometimes it doesn’t. Sometimes the light turns off by itself, sometimes it doesn’t. This has been happening for a year and a few months… happens just about daily.
They are both ceiling lights with attached fans and wireless controllers with wall switches. Is this just a weird wiring issue?

2023.06.01 04:48 Glittering-Trash111 Ceiling Fan Help

I’m not sure if this is the best place to ask but I’m at a loss. It’s the hottest week of the year so far and I just moved into my new house. We have harbor breeze ceiling fans which don’t have pull cords but have a remote.
When we turn on the switch, the fan will beep and the light will come on with the remote. I hit the buttons for the fan to turn on and it’ll beep but the fan won’t spin. One of the fans won’t turn when it’s off but the others will.
I’m just wondering if there’s something I can do to fix it or if I should just look into new fans 😣

Hi, I have a RM 4 pro, and I used to just hit the plus sign on the app, add an appliance/device and then learn the signals and scan frequencies.
Now the only way I see is scanning a barcode, and my device is not recognized.
How can I add not-smart appliances (like a IR controled ceiling fan) and learn the signal?
Thanks in advance
