If I remember correctly, it’s mostly about espionage. But in the very beginning, the main character is on his grandpa’s commercial trawler and they snag a Russian submarine that isn’t supposed to be in the area. This results in the gear breaking and killing the grandpa. Please help. Have been searching for the title for about ten years.

2023.06.04 05:31 Budfrompsych Heating/light elements

So, I plan on getting my first bp here in the near future and I’m just finding so much information about heating and light elements that all together feel very overwhelming to me. Is it really important to have a dimming thermostat if I’m using heat lamps? Are heat lamps the best way to go? What about deep heat projectors? Is there anything that is looked at as the “normal” way for heating? I know there are plenty of lists and general information out there, but when I look at it as a whole, it makes me paranoid that I’m going to make a mistake and not give the snake a comfortable habitat. Any advice is welcomed and appreciated.

2023.06.04 05:31 ZealousidealRoyal698 Having sharp pains in my chest when I lay down or breathe deeply. Any advice?

I am a female in the United States, I’m white and am 20 years old. I am 5’8, 140 pounds, and have only been diagnosed withADHD and take stimulants for it. So I have had this this lately where I can’t lay down, especially tonight, or breathe deeply without getting sharp pains in my heart/lungs area but only on the left side of my chest. I can fall asleep I just need to sit up to do so. Google has been inconclusive and kinda unhelpful. Google told me it be the fluid sac around my heart but that would mean I am sick which I’m not, also said it could be digestive issues. Any advice or anyone with knowledge on this?

2023.06.04 05:31 BrunoMillan Violet Nuzlocke - Feeling like I will go downhill soon!

Violet Nuzlocke - Feeling like I will go downhill soon!
Hey, friends!
So, I'm doing my first Violet Nuzlocke! I'm not doing it too hardcore because I have little time to play and want to have fun, but decided to do a nuzlocke in order to add some tension to it! Haha
The way I'm handling the encounters is to roll a digital die to determine which pokemon I should catch in each area. Then, I turn on a 3 minute timer and search for it. If I don't find it when the time runs out, I choose a direction and run until I start a battle. Also, whenever I defeat a gym leader, team star base or titan, I can choose a random raid pokemon to catch (that means I can choose the tera type by choosing the den, but once I interact with it and know what the pokemon is, I can't change it).
I've been blessed with some dragons, but also got some pretty bad pokemons. I have no fire types at all, which is something I'm not used to. Even though the fully evolved dragons are good, they are pretty weak right now (specially Baby Boomer, the Dreepy!), but I want to see if I can keep at least the Dragonair and Dreepy in the team so I will have a Dragonite and Dragapult for the pokemon league and post game.
I just went through Medali and lost both Catiorra, my Lycanroc and Eletropaulo, my Luxray, which were on my team since before I got the second and third badges... Now I feel like my team is much more unstable, specially because Eletropaulo had electric, fire and ice type moves, that I don't have in any of the other mons right now. I will see the TMs I can craft and the possible movepools I can get now with the pokemons I have available to use!
What do you people think of my run? Do you think it has potential? Should I start to worry and actually care more about my strategies rather than the pokemons I like the best?

2023.06.04 05:31 TrustMeImAProctor No available July dates for rescheduling Level 2!

I'm currently scheduled to take Level 2 at the end of June. I spoke with our school's dean who recommended that, based on my COMSAE and feeling of preparedness, it would be best to move the test date to sometime in July.
I just looked to reschedule and there are no available dates in July! I even selected multiple Pearson VUE testing centers in my area but still nothing :(. Anxiety just went through the roof.
Is it realistic to expect a testing date and time to open up in my immediate area for sometime in July? Should I be constantly checking the schedule throughout the day?

2023.06.04 05:31 32iA4vqYux I feel DEPRESSED and SUICIDAL over my borderline intellectual functioning/retardation

I basically failed high school. I was only able to pass with the extensive use of remedial classes, which were watered-down beyond measure in comparison to the normal high school classes. These were the most basic, run-of-the-mill, standard high school classes, and yet despite my best efforts, I found myself failing over and over. Instead of being placed properly in special-ed services, my school district decided instead that I would fare better in society as someone who can't pass classes or hold a job. Instead of being given the proper accomodations I deserved (on account of my intellectual disability), I was essentially left to fend for myself in spite of my glaring cognitive deficits. I would understand this move if we lived in a society completely debased from morals and ethics, but it appears that we don't, as other schools seem to always have special-ed services, and recipients of such services are usually treated with compassion and empathy.
Post high school, I've held a few jobs, which range from office jobs to working in restaurants. And in each job, I performed horribly, leading me to quit right before I was fired.
There persists an erroneous assumption that someone with my level of disability would be unable to articulate themselves with any degree of intelligibility. I assure you that this is not the case, and that I wrote this myself.

2023.06.04 05:31 qwas12357 Personality factors that predict BPD

The diagnosis of borderline personality disorder (BPD) is predicated upon the notion that those who suffer from it have aspects of their personalities which are problematic, self-defeating and dysfunctional so, in the first instance, it is useful to explain what is meant by personality.
In fact, there are several theories which attempt to describe what personality is rather than one, definitive theory and one of the best-known theories is called the five-factor model of personality.
The 5 factor model of personality proposes that personality comprises 5 main factors/traits/characteristics, represented by the acronym OCEAN.
These 5 factors are shown and elucidated upon below :
Openness To Experience (inventive/curious versus consistent / cautious). Conscientiousness (efficient/organized versus easy-going / careless). Extraversion (outgoing/energetic versus solitary/reserved). Agreeableness (friendly/compassionate versus challenging/detached). Stability/Neuroticism (sensitive/nervous versus secure/confident).
Because, as already stated, a diagnosis of BPD is based on the idea that aspects of the diagnosed person's personality are disturbed we would expect there to be some relationship between this model of personality and the personalities of those suffering from BPD.
In relation to this, researchers have posed the question: to what degree can a diagnosis of BPD be predicted from a description of a person's personality based upon the 5-factor model?
One study (Distel et al., 2009) that sought to answer this question, involving over 10,000 participants in total, found that, in terms of the 5-factor model, the traits that best predicted BPD were :
High Neuroticism combined with Low Conscientiousness
Another study (Kendler et al., 2011) came up with similar results, finding that the three factors which correlated most highly with BPD were :
High Neuroticism Low Conscientiousness Low Agreeableness
A third study (Terr, 1991) found that individuals who had suffered significant childhood trauma (extremely common among BPD sufferers) scored more highly than controls on :
Neuroticism Openness to new experience.
Research carried out by Gutierrez et al. (2000) suggested that seven fundamental aspects of personality that, when they become disturbed, dysfunctional and maladaptive (e.g. due to childhood trauma), make up the foundations on which personality disorders may develop. (though, of course, to be diagnosed with any one particular personality disorder not all seven aspects of personality need to be functionally impaired. However, which of the seven aspects are impaired, and in which combinations, will contribute to the determination of the particular personality disorder).
Antagonism Compulsivity Detachment Disinhibition Negative affect Psychoticism Submissiveness
The above is of particular interest as there is a growing feeling within certain sectors of the medical profession that, rather than labelling people with potentially stigmatizing labels (such as borderline personality disorder) it may be better from a patient's point for the therapist to describe his/her difficulties with reference to the above seven personality aspects. This also has the benefit of providing the patient with specific personality traits and behaviours that s/he may benefit from working on and giving him/her greater insight into the source of his/her difficulties.
Studies suggest there is a genetic component that contributes to an individual's chances of developing BPD during adulthood. This, in turn, suggests (but does not prove) that certain behavioural aspects/traits of BPD may well have been adaptive for our ancestors (i.e. helped them to cope with their environment, to survive, and, ultimately, therefore, to reproduce in certain situations). Let's look at examples of why this may have been the case.
One aspect of personality pathology can be social avoidance e.g socially avoidant personality disorder and BPD (during phases of withdrawal) This trait could have helped our ancestors survive if they lived in an environment in which there existed many dangerous strangers.
Many individuals suffering from BPD are highly impulsive. If a person is impulsive, it means s/he tends to react very quickly to an array of stimuli. Thus, in environments in which danger could suddenly come out of nowhere (like being unexpectedly attacked by a predator), lighting fast reactions would help to increase the individual's chances of survival.
One main symptom of BPD is a propensity to fly into intense rages and become (usually verbally) aggressive. Again, for our ancestors, aggression helped them to survive and reproduce. Indeed, violence was necessary as there was no police force to protect people and food and resources could sometimes only be gained by the means of fighting. Even during the last century, anthropologists studied a tribe of very violent hunter-gatherers and found that those who had committed homicide lived longer and reproduced more than less violent members of the tribe.
It stands to reason that individuals who both inherit traits relevant to BPD AND grow up in a dysfunctional environment (constituting a ''double-whammy) are at especially increased risk of developing BPD compared to both those who inherit similar traits but experience a stable and loving childhood and those who do not inherit BPD-related traits but experience a traumatic and stressful childhood.
It follows, of course, that if a parent has BPD, the child is at significantly increased risk of developing BPD him/herself as s/he may both inherit predisposing personality traits and grow up in a harmful environment.

2023.06.04 05:31 Goingallofgarden Is anyone else unable to enjoy the game anymore due to matchmaking?

I just played for about 6 hours straight with my best friend, we won maybe 3 out of about 25 games. We are consistently carrying our team and switching characters to solve problems, but we cannot for the life of us get teammates that carry their weight.
We always have at least one dps with 1-7 KD or a support with 12 deaths and 2k healing after 10 minutes. Losing every single game we play can’t be our fault right? And if it is, isn’t the matchmaker supposed to derank us until the games get more even?
It seems to me that as we rank down, the dependability of our teammates continue to dwindle lower and lower until we’re the only ones staying alive at all some matches.
Overwatch is my favorite game, i have almost 2k hours in it and this past month i’ve went from platinum 1 to gold 5. It’s impossible to enjoy anymore, and I’m really wanting to find a new game to play with my friends that i can actually have fun playing. Does anyone else have a similar experience? It can’t be just us!

2023.06.04 05:31 Yvonne_Caldwell Save Money and Resources by Using a Solar Power Bank


The Benefits of Solar Power Banks

Solar power banks are a revolutionary new way to store energy. They are portable, easy to use, and environmentally friendly. Unlike traditional power banks, which rely on electricity from the grid, solar power banks use the power of the sun to charge their batteries. This means that they are completely self-sufficient and can be used anywhere, at any time.
One of the biggest benefits of solar power banks is that they can save you money. By using the power of the sun to charge your devices, you can reduce your reliance on traditional power sources, which can be expensive. This is especially true if you live in an area with high electricity costs or if you travel frequently and need to charge your devices on the go.

The Environmental Benefits of Solar Power Banks

In addition to saving you money, solar power banks are also good for the environment. Traditional power sources, such as coal and natural gas, are major contributors to greenhouse gas emissions and climate change. By using a solar power bank, you can reduce your carbon footprint and help to protect the planet.
Another environmental benefit of solar power banks is that they can help to reduce waste. Traditional batteries and power banks need to be replaced frequently, which can lead to a lot of waste. Solar power banks, on the other hand, are designed to last for years and can be recharged indefinitely.

The Future of Solar Power Banks

The future of solar power banks is bright. As more and more people become aware of the benefits of renewable energy, the demand for solar power banks is likely to increase. This, in turn, will lead to more innovation and development in the field, which will make solar power banks even more efficient and effective.
One area of development that is particularly exciting is the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in solar power banks. AI can be used to optimize the charging and discharging of the battery, which can help to extend its lifespan and improve its efficiency. This, in turn, can help to reduce waste and save even more money and resources.


Solar power banks are a game-changer in the world of energy storage. They are portable, easy to use, and environmentally friendly, and they can save you money and reduce your carbon footprint. As the demand for renewable energy continues to grow, the future of solar power banks looks bright. So why not join the revolution and start using a solar power bank today?

2023.06.04 05:30 QueenofDeNile83 Has Anyone Ever Served Gypsies?

In my area we have one prominent Gypsy family that just plain SUCK!! They have a billion children of all ages, none of them know how to act right in public and ESPECIALLY in restaurants. The family has been permanently banned from my previous restaurant and according to Next Door they are banned from many more businesses, not solely restaurants.
During the day you usually can catch them outside a grocery store with like 5 kids, PRETENDING to play a musical instrument. Violin is their preferred musical grifting method.
Anyways, they come to our restaurant once a month. Most of the time it's only the men and its always less than 6, so we can't auto grat them. They show up 15 minutes before the kitchen closes and orders a bunch of shit with all these special instructions and everything so that way if ONE thing is off from what they requested they will demand a refund even if they've eaten most of it. My GM is very non confrontational and a total chicken shit when it comes to standing up for the restaurant or the employees.
It's happened so many times that we refuse to refund their money if they make changes to the signature dishes. That helped curb the complaints and the comps for a while. But these pieces of ass DON'T EVER TIP!!! They've only has to tip once that I'm aware of and that's because it was a party of like 12 of them and it was auto grated and they tried to argue that.
These people are complete assholes, they only spend maybe $150 AT MOST a month. So it's not like their business means shit to my restaurant. They don't tip and treat the staff like total garbage and they make a fucking mess dropping food, napkins, bread crumbs...FUCKING EVERYTHING on the floor. I don't know why my restaurant won't ban them like so many other businesses in the area have!!!!!
Has anyone else ever had an infection of Gypsies at their restaurant? I need to hear some funny stories after getting ripped of by those dick pickles again!!

2023.06.04 05:30 Fool_growth Deals best kept

Many magic systems have a facially transactional model of upfront costs: in order to achieve X output (magic), I need to give up Y input (blood, etc.). Spirits is now not necessarily a magic-making machine but instead a debt grantor, and the mage is a grantee.
For my magic system, I wanted to use a different model, flipping it from an upfront cost to a delayed cost: I can achieve X output now, but I will need to give up Y later. To be more accurate and explain, in my universe, the planet is a sentient consciousness, and everything in and on it is a different aspect or expression of its existence. This includes humans too, and other races as well, putting that aside. Magic is going into debt with spirits, but what the spirits want is not concrete like what people want; they have wants, needs, and personalities. What one fire spirit wants is not necessarily what another fire spirit wants, and due to this very nature, studying magic becomes more about understanding the other party so you can both come to an agreement that's mutually beneficial. A lot of magic is reaching out and getting them to take stock and pay attention, with rituals and spells being akin to pitches or terms of a contract with reciprocity on both sides.
Spirits breaking Deals come with just as much consequence as a person breaking a deal, and the punishment is equal to that of what was agreed upon. However, if for some reason you figure out how to keep delaying what you owe, eventually it will come if the deal isn't fulfilled to the letter, hence why being specific is important as well. Spirits are sometimes ephemeral; they know just as much as people do about someone that they know, or, to be more accurate, they only know what you say.and do on the very surface level and will not be able to read your heart, your soul, your intentions, and all that. With this said, it is also important to note that while spirits are not holy omniscient, they do talk to one and are careful about who they make deals with.
Essentially, karma exists in this universe, but it's more centered around keeping your word, not in a you can't lie sort of way, but more in a are you someone who makes good on their deals specifically, not always pertaining to magic, more so what sort of person you are in this universe." A good rule of thumb is that your deals are best kept, with anyone can learn magic if they have the right knowledge, more specifically access to certain types of spirits and spirits of different calibers, so you'll have access to your local spirits of darkness, you might not necessarily have access to a greater power that embodies a different or stronger aspect of the dark with spirits not giving or allowing access to magic they deem worthy or not fit as magic can and will just not work or backfire ironically if the spirits think they're being tricked, swindled, or conned, however this generally depends on the spirits and Spirits in one area might let you do magic where others might not, but as I've said, spirits are humans, to use the broadest meaning of that word, and are capable of making mistakes and bad judgment calls.
There are probably a lot of things I missed, but this is it. What do you guys think? Any suggestions I know not many people are going to read this, but I wanted to give it a good old college try.

2023.06.04 05:30 mike_from_the_moon To my songbird, I still hear you.

I haven't spoken to you and I haven't heard from you in 4 years but even after all this time when I close my eyes and think of you singing, talking or making your funny pigeon noises it's like you're here with me. I miss my best friend, my fellow explorer of the unknown, my lover but most of all I miss you. After all this time and after everything that happened I dont think you'll truly understand how much of myself you took when you changed. Or maybe you were always like that and I was too blind to see it? Nonetheless my heart and mind honors the memory of the woman you were and the woman I fell so deeply in love with. I've tried to forget you and push you down towards the recesses of my memories, I've tried to smother my affection with spite but even now when I begin to feel peace and comfort in my life you like to visit me in my dreams. I thought this was something to be ashamed of but now I see that this is a reminder of what true love and peace feels like and it was always with you. Ive been searching for you in others for so long but I need to accept that what you were to me is something I'll never find again and it was a once in a lifetime experience. Those pools of hazel honey that used to gaze into my soul and the warmth of your arms around me will be the closest I will ever get to truly finding peace.
If you ever get to see this I hope you know, I still love you Kiera and I dont think I'll ever stop. I miss you my love bird, my moongirl, my light. 🤍

2023.06.04 05:30 OlafTheGoat155 Gathering my thoughts and seeking advice

Hey. I have been having trouble gathering my thoughts, so I thought I would come here for maybe a bit of guidance.
I applied for the College Prep Scholar, and though I had begun the application weeks before the deadline, due to a family medical emergency, I was not able to truly polish up my application and I was rejected. (However, I understand that many incredible applicants applied and that I was never guaranteed to be selected.)
Even though I know not being selected is not the end of the world, it has been causing me quite a lot of stress and is making me feel very insecure. For some context, three of my older “cousins” (cousins in quotes because we technically aren’t blood-related, they’re really family friends that I call cousins haha) all got selected for CPS and were National Match Finalists. As such, for years there has been this pressure for me to follow in their footsteps through this program, and since I failed to get CPS, the weight has been a lot for me to carry. I’ve been trying my best to stay positive and hopeful, but this along with other recent developments in my life have been pushing me to my mental limit.
I hope I am not coming off as insufferable, but I truly feel stuck on how to continue. My mother has been very disappointed and I don’t think I can reach out to my cousins for this as they are often very busy and live far away now. I still plan on applying to the match program in the fall, but to be honest I am fearful and discouraged. Overall, I just don’t know where I should go from here.

2023.06.04 05:30 PunkrockPopeye Beat Em'!

Beat Em'!
"Beat Em'!"
Sometime among the events of the very first Kinder Cosmic...
The director of the United States Space Force marches back and forth before a gathered group of several hardened space marines all standing at attention within a large training room as he addresses the group with a general Patton like speech.
USSF Director: Ladies and gentlemen...We are at the precipice of the dawn of a new age!
*The group murmurs amongst one another curiously.
USSF Director: Time and time again threats from opposing galaxies, dimensions, and outer worlds; some beyond the very realm of human comprehension have descended upon our little blue marble suspended in space and threatened our quality of life, our society, our safety, our sovereignty and our very existence!
*Several members of the group shudder and gasp as the director continues his sermon.
USSF Director: If the citizens of this United States, no...The very world itself are to maintain our status qu-
*The group diverts their attention behind the director towards the sound of a loud, laborious sigh.
*The director shoots a disapproving glare at the alien grey known as Alpha as he continues to speak.
USSF Director: As of late, the only force standing between the citizens of this planet and total annihilation has been...
The lady astronaut and appointed liaison to the greys; one Luna Valentina gently pushes the little grey alien known as Jorg towards the middle of the room as she whispers in his earholes.
Luna: ...Go ahead, Jorg!
*Dressed in a bright red silk dress and miniskirt with a purple bandanna tied tightly around the crown of his head; Jorg stares at the hem of his dress with either side clasped tightly within his hands as he swings his hips from side to side and hums happily as the dress flutters back and forth.
The USSF Director sighs apathetically as he continues to speak, pointing at the little grey now standing beside him.
USSF Director: W-What...
*The Director shields his mouth and whispers to Alpha and Luna as Jorg continues swaying unmoved and unbothered.
USSF Director: What th-....What is this?
*Luna laughs and smiles as she replies patiently.
Luna: The only way I could get him to cooperate is if I let him wear his dress!
*The Director stares at Jorg still humming and fluttering from side to side and then Alpha confusedly.
Alpha: He thinks it makes him stronger...
*Luna giggles as she follows Alpha’s words.
Luna: He...he doesn't understand how feminism works!
*The Director stares at the flamboyant grey and then Alpha once more.
*Alpha throws his hands up as he replies.
Alpha: Who the hell am I to tell him otherwise? As far as I know it probably does!
*The USSF Director sighs frustratedly as he quips.
USSF Director: Jesus fucking Christ...Can he fight wearing it?
*Alpha smirks mischievously as he speaks.
Alpha: ...Jorg? Jorg can fight in anything, anywhere, at anytime!
USSF Director: Fine...Well I guess we'll conti-
*Suddenly the Director is interrupted by a massive, muscled and imposing Sergeant who addresses the group obnoxiously.
Sergeant: Why is that little alien wearing a fuckin' miniskirt!?
Luna snaps defensively.
*A private nearby mutters knowingly.
Private: Well, I heard that lil' shit is completely unhinged!
*The group of hardened space marines murmur amongst one another as Luna plants her hands on her hips and speaks once more.
*The Sergeant points at the preoccupied grey as he speaks once again.
Sergeant: That scrawny, 80 lbs, ugly ass little critter? Saved what? Ru Paul's drag race?
*The private glares at the Sergeant standing beside him confusedly as he continues to speak.
Private: Where the hell have you been man!? You didn't hear about what happened in Tulsa?
*The Sergeant cuts a sidelong glance at the private as he continues to speak.
Sargeant: Stationed abroad... No phones, or internet, or TV, or electricity, or running water...not even a fuckin working toilet! So no...I don't know "what happened in Tulsa".
Private: ...Oh. Well I HEARD he leveled half a city fighting some interstellar Lovecraftian planet killer...
Private: SURE BOSS! whatever y'all say, it's not like it hasn't been cycling all over Tiktok for months...
*Alpha sighs again loudly.
*As the group continues to bicker incessantly the USSF Commander from "Kinder Cosmic: Paradise Lost" strolls into the training room and smiles with a large grin as he leans against a supply depots consignment widow and addresses it's quartermaster casually.
Commander: Has it started yet!?
QuarterMaster: ....Has what started yet?
*The Commander grins mischievously as he continues to speak.
Commander: Say...Are you a bettin' man?
Quarter Master: On what exactly?
Commander: Costello over there of course!
*The Quarter Master stares at the grey still preoccupied with his pretty dress and then the Commander once again.
Quarter Master: That sick lookin, effeminate little space midget against ALL OF THEM!?
*The Commander smiles knowingly.
Commander: You bet your ass!
*The QuarterMaster doubles a glance back and forth between the grey and the Commander as he speaks.
QuarterMaster: How drunk are you?
Commander: VERY!
QuarterMaster: How much do you wanna put down on him?
*The Commander reaches into his pocket then slams several stacks of money upon the window's table as he speaks.
Commander: My ENTIRE goddamned pension!
*The Quarter Master stares at the little grey smiling as he swings in his pretty red dress and then the hardened military veterans and finally, the grinning Commander once more.
Quarter Master: You're on!
*The USSF Director silences the gathered, bickering and murmuring group as he interjects.
USSF Director: QUIET!
*The group of military commandos quickly stand at attention as the USSF Director commences pacing and continues his addressment once again while Luna smiles knowingly and Alpha shakes his head from side to side...also knowingly.
USSF Director: THE POINT IS! That we're facing a potential threat that is completely out of human understanding, the very laws of physics itself and our current martial capabilities!
*The USSF Director points at the greys; Alpha’s arms folded as he stands like a solemn statue and Jorg still hyperfocused as he busily plays with his red dress.
USSF Director: Although they ARE friendl-
*Alpha’s face sours distastefully as he hisses underbreath.
Alpha: Pshhh...
*The Director darts a sharp glare at Alpha who returns it with a twisted, smug expression and then at Luna who shrugs her shoulders casually.
USSF Director: ....Although they ARE NOT THE ENEMY we can not let the future of humanity...
*The Director stares at Jorg who is still absolutely lost within his own world as he continues to speak.
USSF Director: ...Rest upon the strapless shoulder blades of one four and a half foot; morally and mentally compromised little...whatever in the hell this thing is.
*The Director points towards Jorg as he flutters and sways repeatedly.
*Luna retorts defensively as Alpha comments sarcastically.
Luna: HEY!
Alpha: Well...I mean, he's right. Man's still kinda a misguided idiot but when he's right he's right!
*The Director glares at Alpha once more as his subordinates murmur and contemplate his directive aloud amongst one another.
Private: We are so, so, so completely and utterly screwed...
*The Sergeant standing besides the private shrugs apathetically as he speaks.
Sergeant: I don't see what the big deal is...
*The director marches to and fro once again as he continues to speak.
USSF Director: That being said! The ONLY WAY to adjust our combat to this new enemy is simulated combat WITH THE ENEMY!
*Alpha smiles slyly and quips sarcastically as The Director retorts with a commanding tone.
Alpha: ....Sissy!
USSF Director: Oh yes you will private! Unless of course you want... AN EXTRA WORK DETAIL!
Private: GOD-DAMNIT!
*The Director grins as he continues to speak.
USSF Director: Besides! You'll only be facing a single extraterrestrial opponent today, Alpha has adamantly refused to participate in this exercise...
*Alpha retorts sharply.
Alpha: I said, "You can go fuck yourself", that's what I said.
*Luna erupts with a riotous laughter as the USSF Director glares at Alpha in return.
*The Sergeant points towards Jorg still playing with his fluttering dress.
Sergeant: And lil' Miss Doubtfire over here? HE'S supposed to be our opponent!?
*Luna beams with pride as she retorts.
Luna: I wouldn't underestimate Jorg! He's wildly talented!
Sergeant: At what!? Martha Stewart style homesteading?
*The group snickers as Luna giggles and returns a mischievous grin and then quips once more.
*Alpha clarifies casually as the group murmurs and looks on at the little grey still lost amongst the surrounding atmosphere.
Alpha: Consent for Jorg is kind of a non-issue, he's barely aware of where he is half the time. When goaded he does have a certain instinctive enthusiasm for martial combat under the right conditions. I don't even know where he learned it, he just came back one day and knew it innately. Like a telekinetic amalgamation of something between Ong-Bak and Jet Li...
*The Private stares at the little grey in suspended disbelief.
Private: Under...what conditions?
*Alpha grins knowingly; as he responds.
Alpha: Basically...You've got to manage to piss him off.
Private: "Piss him off?"
*The Sergeant cracks his knuckles as he smiles belligerently.
Sergeant: Well this should be easy!
*Alpha shrugs unknowingly.
Alpha: Maybe...Sometimes it is and sometimes it isn't! To evoke this reaction from Jorg or to "Piss him off"; it is like this ingrained psychological trigger. It isn't so much guided as a form of premeditated anger as a kind of pro-active defense mechanism. He's not even really fully aware when he does it. I think it may be a kind of "Fight or Flight" reaction he just does. Except Jorg...well...Jorg pretty much always chooses to fight.
*The privates eyes widen curiously as he stares the little grey up and down before him.
Private: Is he dangerous!?
*The USSF Commander laughs heartily as he slams his hand upon the provisional warehouse window and retorts excitedly.
*The QuarterMaster glares at the USSF Commander as he chimes in.
QuarterMaster: I wanna replace my bet!
*The USSF Commander replies snarkily.
*Alpha, Luna, The Director and the group of soldiers all divert their attention towards the Commander and QuarterMaster until Alpha continues speaking.
Alpha: Jorg!? Dangerous? I mean...IF YOU DESERVE IT then I dunno...
*Alpha shrugs apathetically.
Alpha: ...Maybe? I really doubt he'd actively kill anyone though.
*The private throws his hands into the air and addresses Alpha frustratedly as the group murmurs amongst themselves once more.
*Alpha shrugs once more...
Alpha: It's Jorg...Jorg is Jorg! You'll see...
*The private stares at the two greys one after another then retorts underbreath as he turns to walk away.
Private: I'm so not fuckin doing this...
Sergeant: Well I think they're full of shit...
Sergeant: Of Non-combatant "week-long warriors" I bet! Might as well be a buncha national guardsmen...I mean...JUST LOOK AT HIM!
*The Sergeant points towards Jorg still swaying giddily.
Sergeant: ...There's no way in hell that little queer fella could take a seasoned soldier!
*Luna retorts defensively.
*Luna cuts her gaze towards Alpha seeking confirmation.
Luna: He isn' he?
*Alpha shrugs unknowingly and apathetically as the group murmurs amongst themselves once more.
*The Private suddenly turns then approaches a series of lockers and containment bins stowing riot gear, defensive equipment and padded suits much like one that would be used to disarm a bomb or train a K-9 attack dog as nearly all of his peers follow suit...
Private: I'm not fucking with this lil dude without my PPE!
*The Sergeant snorts obnoxiously in response as he watches.
Sergeant: I don't need that crap...Besides, it's hard to move or fight with all that bullshit on! Whatchu gonna do? Bumper car bang him to death with it?
*The Private shrugs undisturbed.
Private: ....Whatever!
The crowd gathers all around the little grey warily; some armed with things like MMA gloves, hand-wraps, Batons and extended martial defense metallic rods as they all approach the grey from all angles.
Suspicious and cautious at exactly what the little grey might do and exactly how he might respond.
That is all but one, the boisterous military Sergeant who readies himself and then throws the very first strike at the seemingly defenseless and unsuspecting Jorg.
Without ever even lifting his eyes from the hem of his dress, in a matter of moments warping the surrounding spectators very perception of time; Jorg shifts his head slightly towards the left as the Sergeant's fist narrowly misses the grey by a hair's length.
*The USSF Commander slams his hand upon the provisional warehouses window once more as he retorts giddily.
USSF Commander: HAH!
What happens next can best be described through the conveyance of a matter of collective very short-lived and somewhat difficulty perceived moments.
The next soldier and the next and the next and the next; all of them simultaneously rush towards the little grey slinging their fists and their weapons towards the inattentive and unbothered little grey.
Jorg bobs, weaves, and feints his big grey bandanna wrapped head not unlike a hyperactive, super-powered Muhammad Ali; as fist and all flies from every perceivable angle, not ever touching him...not even once, his attention still diverted towards his fluttering dress all the while.
Another military combatant rushes forewords and thrusts a kick towards the grey; to which he spins out of reach with seamless grace as yet another kick comes flying from it's opposing direction to which the grey quickly ducks then loops his body around from underneath...still playing with the hem of his pretty red dress still humming to himself gleefully as Luna erupts with laughter.
Sergeant: What...what the hell IS THIS!?
Private: He....He never even LOOKED at us...NOT ONCE!
*The Director stares at Luna and Alpha then questions them curiously.
USSF Director: Why isn't he defending himself?
Alpha: ...Probably because Jorg doesn't see any of you as a threat.
*The boisterous military Sergeant walks towards Jorg then plants a single finger upon his forehead then slowly pushes him backwards; to which Jorg sways back then forwards then rests in the exact same position of which he'd originally been.
Sergeant: What do you mean he doesn't see us as a threat?
*Alpha responds casually.
Alpha: I mean exactly what I said! Jorg only reacts when driven towards it from an outside stimulus; when he himself, someone he cares about, or perhaps even others are under certain conditions of diress such as a threat or pressure or the friction of oncoming conflict. It is very difficult to tell exactly when this trigger will set off from an outside perspective but FOR JORG these lines are ingrained within his very being. It's like a reflex, he doesn't even have to think about it.
Private: How is it he can move so quickly like that? I could barely even see him doing it!
Alpha: Part of it is because Jorg instinctively compounds his telekinesis with Kinetic energy. The other is because he's clairvoyant, prophetic even. This doesn't just apply to the precepts of time or it's passage through the universe itself but also to an outside stimulus. But just like almost all things concerning Jorg; he isn't fully aware of what he's doing and what he does it its all interdependent on outside stimulus and outside perception and interpretation. In short, Jorg is like a living mirror in everything he does and reasons for doing them. A reflection of one's self whether they even realize it or not. He could punch through a two inch steel wall or bulletproof plate glass window faster than you could blink if he wanted to...
*Alpha shrugs casually.
Alpha: ...Only problem is it takes alot for Jorg to actively feel inclined to do so. Well...sometimes. All that being said apparently he sees absolutely none of you as an inclination for him to act...and so...he doesn't. He doesn't see any of you as a threat!
*The Sergeant fumes angrily and frustratedly as he stares at the preoccupied little alien frustratedly and then speaks angrily.
*Alpha replies to the Sergeant flatly and unflinching.
Alpha: Exactly what I just said...Your limited human capabilities and physicality to Jorg is a non-issue. You're not big enough, strong enough, forceful enough or physically capable through your own recognizance of being a perceivable threat to him.
*The Sergeant stands from the opposing side of the playful grey in the little red dress then angrily unbuttons and unholsters his service weapon as he holds it in both hands, pointed towards the ground.
*The USSF Commander laughs a riotous laugh as he spectates from the warehouse window some distance away then pounds the desk upon it once more as he goads the Sergeant playfully.
*The Commander quickly turns towards it's QuarterMaster then whispers as he winks towards his glare.
USSF Commander: ....Fucking idjit!
*Luna’s eyes widen with worry as she begins to speak.
*Alpha calmly places a gentle hand upon Luna’s shoulder as he knowingly interjects solemnly yet very mischievously.
Alpha: Nah....Let em'.
The Sergeant steadies his firearm upon the grey methodically as all of his compatriots watch onwards nervously.
And what happens next, again...Can best be explained by a breakdown of a series of events that through our perception of time unfolded within a matter of moments.
...But to Jorg himself? Well, that's another matter entirely.
Just like one perceptive light switch suddenly being flicked on from deep, deep, deep within Jorg’s psyche. The little grey suddenly raises his head; his black, saucer shaped eyes widened with a perfectly aligned subconscious awareness. One of them twitching erratically above a maddened grin as above and all throughout this training room; the loud deafening roar of electric guitar reverberates one ear-splitting and most deafening melody.
Loudly cutting through the awkward silence not unlike a high-powered circular saw this melody is that of the song "Beat It" the cover of an infamous Michael Jackson tune preformed by the band "Fall Out Boy".
And as this guitar melody drones and roars throughout the intercom and sirens of the facility all around; As Alpha smirks smugly and Luna laughs...and then gasps. What follows suit could be quite accurately articulated as a series of movements so perceivably fast, powerful, and deadly accurate that one could quite convincingly say that Jorg DID move faster than a human could blink.
He quickly utilizes his telekinetic energy with one hand to jerk the firearm out from within the Sergeant's grasp not unlike a vaulted football ripped from between a running back's fingers. And as this pistol flies and spins towards Jorg he launches himself into the air, quickly preforming a spinning back kick that smacks against the gun sending it ricocheting and flipping once more until it hurtles directly dead center of the Sergeant's face sending him spiraling and sprawled out upon the ground nearby while the gun itself deflects, is thrown against a nearby wall and then misfires.
Space Marine: SHIT...MY LEG!
And as the lyrics of the song echo and vibrates all throughout this training room, quaking its walls and cushioned floormats with every progressing spoken word; the frightened private quickly turns to sprint in the other direction, absolutely ANY direction away from Jorg.
But little did he know; it was far, far, far too late...
Jorg harnesses his telekinetic energy to rip the man's legs out from beneath him, as he does Jorg quickly sprints forward, leaps into the air again like a telekinetic grasshopper then dead drops his knee into the private's back.
As Jorg "ground and pounds" the back of the privates combat protective headgear repeatedly in rapid succession; not unlike quick repeating Wing-Chun punches into the back of the man's head, striking and bouncing his forehead off of the training floor's cushioned material all to the rhythm of this melody. The surrounding marines look around at one another, murmuring in a stunned confusion as the private cries for help.
Private: G-G-GET I-
Private: GET IT OFFA ME!
*The USSF Director points at the private then addresses the fearful combatants sternly.
USSF Director: ...WELL!? HELP HIM!
*One of the remaining combatants turns to kick Jorg off of the private when the grey quickly stops then pivots as if in anticipation of said strike; catches the man's ankle then smiles with a malevolent grin before twisting it with a loud *CRACK!
*Luna squints her eyes closed and winces painfully as Alpha grins a grin very much reflective of Jorg’s and they both comment.
Luna: Oooooooh!
Alpha: Fuck em'...
Elsewhere at the provisional warehouse window the USSF Commander slams his hand down upon the table once more as he also comments; smiling at the QuarterMaster with a shit eating grin all the while.
USSF Commander: That looked like it HURT LIKE HELL! GET EM' HOSS!
*The QuarterMaster also comments, sneering distastefully.
QuarterMaster: I fuckin' hate you...
Elsewhere amongst the whirlwind of rapid, successful strikes and all to a melody; Jorg now stands his miniskirt fluttering in training room's AC cooled air along with the motion of his movements with the Marine's now broken ankle held between the palms of his hands; the man still wailing with pain.
In an amount of time accumulating to less than the passage of a few seconds; the grey spins and leg sweeps the other man's remaining limb, tossing him upwards into the air before kicking him in the abdomen with a telekinetically reinforced strike that sends the man hurtling into and bouncing off of the nearest wall.
As another approaching soldier moves in to strike Jorg the grey quickly hops a foot into the air once more; then quickly plants a deflective side kick in rapid, fluid succession into the center of the man's chest which sends him staggering back just a few paces.
*The soldier hardens himself as he pounds his chest then closes in on Jorg once more.
Space Marine: IS THAT ALL YOU GOT!?
And as this melody continues to pound with a thunderous roar all throughout the training room; Jorg smiles a sadistic smile.
While the man races forwards to preform a takedown upon the little grey, Jorg quickly and acrobatically dips his head and upper abdomen towards the ground. With a certain level of martial flexibility mirroring that of a Shaolin Monk the grey lifts the pad of his foot from behind towards where his head originally was, arching it upwards and from behind his backside with his torso now angled downwards, he then slams the bottom of his foot into the Marine's forehead; stunning him instantaneously.
Jorg quickly rights his equilibrium and with a fluid, unceasing movement uses that very same leg to plant a telekinetically charged front kick into the man's sternum; sending him flying backwards and crashing into yet another padded wall.
A remaining marine shouts at Jorg and then races towards him from a flanked position sending his own angled "axe kick" towards the grey's abdomen.
And as this melody pounds and reverberates the ether all around from every perceivable direction; without so much as a moments hesitation, forethought, or consideration Jorg side steps then archs his own leg around the own man's "Axe Kick" locking it into place.
*The Marine's eyes meet the grey's; whose deep, darkened saucer shaped eyes are deadlocked onto his own. Shining with a glossy, detached madness as the grey's smile widens. And with their legs locked in place, Jorg intentionally restricts the man's movement; the Marine's remaining free leg trembles as he utters words of fear and astonishment.
Space Marine: Oh....SHI-
*Before the man can even get the words out the grey hops into the air with his remaining leg with the other still locked in place, then uses his free leg to dropkick the soldier dead center of his chest with another telekinetically reinforced strike before quickly releasing his leglock to send the man vaulting into another padded wall not unlike a human bullet.
And as this resounding melody finally tolls onwards towards it's completion; the little grey still stands in the middle of this training room. In the exact spot in which he'd originally began; surrounded by moaning, bloody, blackened and bruised human cadavers.
Who at this point are each and all very, very much alive; though perhaps their pride...not so much.
*Luna shakes her head from side to side as the USSF Director speaks.
USSF Director: Well...we're never doing that again!
*Alpha stares at the director and smiles with an air of apathy.
Alpha: I could have told you but you'd never have listened...
*The private spits a mouthful of blood onto the ground as he slowly gathers his strength to try to lift himself from it, next to the still unconscious Sergeant lying face down on the floormat beside him.
Private: We are fucked.
*At the provisional warehouse window the QuarterMaster counts out the last of his debt and then slams it upon the table towards the USSF Commander's outstretched smile now grinning from ear to ear.
USSF Commander: It was nice doin' business with you!
QuarterMaster: Shut the hell up...

2023.06.04 05:30 Popular_Broccoli133 Chance to own a home in a competitive area.. but bad timing. Thoughts?

I’ve been renting in a home that I love for the past few years. Recently, owners decided to sell. Only issue is I’m in med school and income is not consistent. 2 years left until I’ll have an income, but I’ve got ~$300k invested savings now. Home is around $7-800k. Can easily rent out rooms to cover up to half of the mortgage with $200k down. What do you think? The main advantage is I’m already living in it and I believe I can get it for about 10% under market. Would you throw your chips in and do it? Or wait until the timing is better and let the opportunity go.
