2020.09.21 04:35 milkshake67 MIL and FIL think I’m crazy

Sorry for any typos in advance I’m mobile.
I’ve posted in here before years ago, so my story might seem like something you’ve read before. However it was on an old account and I can’t remember my old email/password.
So, my boyfriend (now husband) an I bought a house near his parents about 4 years ago. We live about 10ish minuets from them. I thought it would be great at first, I didn’t know them well at the time. I don’t know anyone other than them that live out here. Shortly after we moved out here we bought 2 German shepherds, we gave one to his parents and they are sisters. MIL would come let our dog out and help with potty training while we were busy working full time jobs. I thought it was nice at first. I quit 7+ year job that I was tired of and got a job closer to the city we live in, I would drop my dog off daily on my way to work. They loved that the two dogs could play together. It was also nice for me while i was working.Shortly after that I became pregnant with my first child and became a stay at home mom. MIL and FIL would harass and hound me on a daily basis asking to pick my dog up, if I was sleeping or busy with something they would show up unannounced or call me none stop. One day I had 16 missed called in 2 hours from them. I quickly became annoyed. MIL would just come over and let herself in because she had a key. I would be sitting on my couch breastfeeding and she would just unlock the door out of nowhere and decide she was going to come over to my house. I thought it was super odd. MIL and FIL are very cheap and very well off compared to us.My MIL often brags about how she donates money to the people in Venezuela or to the wounded warriors. I think it’s nice of her, but if she can donate why can’t she pay for her own shit? We have to spend a lot of our extra money on diapers, wipes, formula and medical bills. We sold my car for 6,000 dollars and put almost 4,000 of it into my husbands old Subaru. Timing belt, water pump etc. My grandma ended up passing away and now I have her old car and my MIL is driving around my husbands old Subaru like it’s hers... MIL and FIL don’t want to pay for the garbage service, so they drop off loads of garbage into our can, we’ve had to pay over flow fees so many times. We pay 26 a month for a bigger can so they can dump at our house, but it’s not meant for 2 households. They also don’t want to pay for Hulu, netflix, amazon prime or Costco, so guess who’s streaming accounts/memberships they use?
Finally after putting up with all of this for over 2 years my husband had a talk with him. I feel like some of these issues have been addressed, but in a weird way. They’ve stopped using our Hulu, Netflix, Amazon and Costco. They’ve stopped harassing me and showing up randomly. They still want to use our garbage and his mom still drives our old car around like it’s nothing. They’ve never said a word to me and pretend like none of this ever happened. It’s really weird to me. I’ve noticed my in laws are the kind of people who can’t discuss anything.
I had my another baby about 5 months ago, I don’t have any family in the area so I’ve needed MIL and FIL to watch my kids at times. I had a surgery shortly after having my youngest and I needed more help than I thought I would, I have told them so many times I appreciate the help and I truly meant it. Every time I bring my kids over I’m harassed about bringing my dog over and honestly it seems like there more into my dog than the kids. I don’t think they understand how hard it is to leave the house with my kids shit, my dog (who doesn’t walk on a leash and pulls, she’s not trained) a baby and a toddler. If I don’t bring my dog My FIL will whine and complain. My MIL will text me while I’m away and beg for me to bring the dog when I come back to get my kids. Sometimes I give in, but recently I just haven’t been bringing the dog. It’s our dog and they need to stop asking for her. I’ve offered for them to keep her many times and they’ve said no. But I see them using the dog as a way to control me. I don’t want to share custody of my dog.
Ever since I had my oldest who just turned 2 my MIL and FIL have never listened to anything I want done with him. I only ever tell them what to do with my kids for their health and safety. My son acts out when he has a lot of sugar, so I limit the amount of sugar he has. I don’t buy him foods with any added sugar, he gets enough natural sugar from diary and fruit. This is my choice as I’m the parent. MIL bought my son crackers with 8 added grams of sugar in one serving , I told her more than 7 times he doesn’t need to eat those and I don’t want him eating those. I have given her so many food options for him to have their, I offer money for her to go out buy them herself but she won’t take it. Instead she continues to give him things I disapprove of.
Also, I’d like to point out she is always challenging me as a parent, she begs for a car seat for her “Subaru” yet, she won’t strap my son in the high chair. Or his wagon, or basically anything for kids that have straps. I’ve basically just let it go because I have no one else to watch my kids.
I’ve also told her countless times i don’t want my kids chewing on cheap plastic from China because its got chemicals in it. Please don’t give him your old Tupperware to chew on (my oldest still chews on everything) she has been giving it to him months. I have provided so many toys for him to play with but she continues to give him cheap plastic.
MIL makes rude comments to me all the time. My oldest is a late talker, he says 4-6 words. we just started speech therapy and MIL makes comments to me like “see that’s why you need to work with him.” I have spent so much time working with my son trying to get to him to talk more and it’s extremely rude to make those comments to me. She says other rude comments often. To be honest, I just don’t enjoy being around MIL when she makes snarky comments to me. I don’t even understand what the point is? I would never go out of my way to make her feel bad about herself.
Finally, about 3 weeks ago I walked in to pick my kids up and theres my son chewing on cheap plastic and holding a cracker filled with sugar. (Mind you I’ve provided food and toys)my MIL said to me” I know you don’t want him eating those, but I gave it to him anyways.”I got my kids and left immediately, I told her later I’m not comfortable with her watching my kids anymore and I will be hiring a sitter instead. Immediately MIL and FIL set texts to my husband saying how terrible I am and that there disappointed they won’t be watching our kids.
My husband said he a heart to heart conversation with his mom where he had to convince her we are the parents and we will decide what they eat and play with.But I don’t think she took it seriously. She did text me and apologize, but to be honest it’s one thing after the next with them and I blocked MIL. I feel like a lot has built up over time and that’s why I’m mad. Am I wrong? I have bit my tongue for so long because I don’t want to be rude and I’ve needed help with my kids. I feel like they’ve tried running our life, using our dog as an excuse to be in constant contact with us, over stepped so many boundaries and MIL has said so many things to purposely make me feel bad about myself. Advice on how to move forward? As of now I’m not talking to them

2020.09.20 20:13 ANewMythos A well-placed love bomb is a great spiritual practice

I struggle with consistency and discipline in my daily spiritual practice. But even though I will keep trying to improve, I realized there are some moments when a single act of generosity can be worth a thousand rituals or practices.
Yesterday I was in an Uber, and the driver told me he was from Venezuela and spoke little English, he was trying to make money for his struggling family back home. We had talked the whole ride, and I learned how bad things were for his wife and kids who he was unable to see for years, like really really bad.
He drops me off, and 20 minutes later I realize I left my phone in his car. I live in a major city, so he was already off getting other riders. I panicked, but eventually got a hold of him. He drove all the way back to get me my phone, missing out on potential customers along the way.
But yesterday was also my birthday party, and I got way more cash than I was expecting from relatives that I hadn’t seen in a long time.
So when he drove back to me, I got this visceral sense that this was the perfect moment for a “love bomb”. Part of me didn’t want to, part of me said I could just give him a big tip on the app and say thank you, but I just knew in my soul that I should give him a big chunk of my cash. So I did, and as I left I noticed he didn’t drive off right away, he just stayed in the road. I think he was surprised.
It just felt so right. Everything lined up so that this man could help his family. I knew it was the right thing to do, and I felt...whole? I don’t know how to describe it, but spontaneous acts of generosity just seem like a hugely important spiritual practice.

2020.09.18 21:31 CurrencyCheap So im trying to learn all of this softwares, to make a good workstation.

So im trying to learn all of this softwares, to make a good workstation. I have made some LinkedIn courses and ill tell my experiences on each.
I just finished my architecture carreer been 8 year fighthing actually but its done.
Now i have to use thia knowledge to make money, well thats what we been thought.
I want to create a studio by my own sell renders and model in freelance sites,(doing kitchens, houses, furniture) but im lacking of softwares knowledge and experience. A boss without knowing any software? Not sure... Huh
So this is what ive right now installed, what i want is a workflow to make everything methodic step by step but with a good ending, i really want to be good(i suck)
This is how i see it: Desgin-Modeling-Render-Video-Post production= HQ Project, be known.
I see guys here "im amateur" their viz are OP, just see mines... Not so much OP.
So ive this softwates installed, my experience so far
-Archicad 23: (8hours course) i felted pretty smooth, similar to revit is like cad and revit mixed up. But when it came to create weird designs, parametrics or curves i exploded i just couldnt do it. Have some good materials, runs good, but i think something is missing.
-Revit 2020: (12 hours course) i think revit is the best bim i can handle, i still lacking of knowledge for doing stuff, i ve dificult creating, stairs(yeah i do..) and floors. But is a kinda square softwares or i dont know how to use it,i mean doing curves things is just not right, doesnt feel good, also for doing furnitures... Just i dont know.
-3Ds max: (20 hours course) yeah 20!!!hours of essential training in LinkedIn, and i suck at it, if you tell me"sit down open 3ds max do this" im just like wtf i dont understand a sht. Everyone is using this for modeling and render etc, but i just dont feel it, i cant model here. Maybe exporting from a bin may work but, i think we are not compatible.
-rhino 6: (3hour course) i felt good with rhino is kinda easy, workspace is easy for creating weird designs seems great, but maybe i dont have the creativity to do it. There are to many options to extrudecrv, which one im suppose to use for this (X) Design im thinking off. When it came to grasshopper... Well i know algorithmic design is the future but wtf?? Maybe i need some programmong knowledge first because i couldnt even do a square, how i suppose to know what to connect in which output and input?
-blender: (donut guy) workspace looks good, feels good. But i didnt even do a right donut, also i think my video card is buggin blender somehow, i jumped to rhino. Also seems is not good for architecture
-maya 2020: i tried i really did but when i tried to do course seems also buggy, i think ny video card is just not right so i left it... There is this girl that use maya for design instagram.com/marianacabugueira she do some crazy stuf, she works for zaha hadid company. I look up maya because of her, its worth to learn this?
-AutoCAD 2020: well... I can make good drawings... Izi pizi ggwp
-UE4: (6hours of course) i think this program is amazing, but isnot easy to learn, also i think the videos here are just to beautiful, hope i can manage to do rendering here i really want to improve here. Also i still dont know how to use it... Im noob
-Lumion 10: (3hour course) well its easy i liked it is like playing somehow, you can use it without a course, common sense, i feel video here sucks... Camera doesnt have good angle, i can make a render but not HQ or pro, just a render.
-Twinmotion: tried it like an hour, seems good. People or the grass is meeh... But is common sense too, not many course out there.
Need to learn: Illustrator to sell my portofolio Photoshoop for good looking pictures, and post Premier for good video editing After effects idk sounds cool Phython... Better grasshopper knowledge?
So my expierience so far has been bad, i feel dumb, like i dont have the brain to do this, i see. People doing amazing stuff in YouTube, reddit patreon, maybe this is not my thing in already 27 years old, i feel like im missing things i feel im going to get 30 not knowing a sht haha and not being good at this. Maybe is like i dont feel it, that motivation. Maybe i just dont enjoy it
Maybe im doing the things bad, maybe are the teachers that im learning from. Maybe im just dumb.. I mean is hard for me.
So i hope you guys tell me your expierience in softwares.
What workflow do you guys use.
How can i improve?
Tips for making money out of this, how and where.
I really want to achieve something feel like "wow i did this?"
Btw im from Venezuela and my country is a mess in all specs, my english is not the best. Economically cant afford other
Thanks for taking the time to read and try to understand me
Ps: All courses i made were YouTube or LinkedIn.

2020.09.18 11:34 Venezolanoanimations Legoshi´s stand (JJBA x beastars) ACT 1, 2 & 3

Legoshi´s stand (JJBA x beastars) ACT 1, 2 & 3
I haven´t seen jojo, i mean, not a full episode but some clips, a few wikis and fan made content, but i have seen beastars (the anime, and few parts part the manga) and i was wonder what if legoshi was a stand user, with the idea that the shadow of his savage tendencys was actually his stand.
Information: the STAND born from the instints of legoshi, he unlocks it when he was a pre-teenager, Posses different Acts that legoshi can select and switch through the battle. This is a dynamical stand meaning that it requires the user to fight by themselves with the enemy user (I mean against the person, not the stand) and each Act have its onw abilitys
Name: Wild Side (localization name: Savage Side or Primal Tendency)
Stats:
Power: Unknown
Speed: Unknown
Range: Unknown
Durability: Unknown
Precision: Unknown
Potential: Unknown
Abilities (general):
Predator: this can turn the tide of the battle real quick and make a [Wilde Side] one of the most powerful stands. It allows changing the stats of [Wilde side] specific way, turning it into the best counter for the enemy stando, and either making the user immune to the enemy stand ability, countering the ability, interfering, or just stopping the ability. In certain cases, the stand can build a temporal ability to “hunting” the enemy stand more easily. However, legoshi need to know the name of the stand and have a small idea of the ability.
Well, there´s the option of leave this to [WILDE SIDE] instincts with the promise of have 100% correct guess but is a huge gamble, because it leaves a big fat opportunity for the stand to get out of the user control and go completely ape-shit (like purple haze). However, it can only preying on one stand at a time
Example: it makes legoshi and the stand able to move in the stop time world or be fast enough to outrun made in heaven and it slow down to cancel the universe reset, be immune to the purple haze virus, and even give a big fat NOPE to the “you never reach the truth” of G.E.R- Gold Experience Requiem.
In few words: This stand can turn itself into the natural predator of any stand in the existence, and I mean every single one, even stands in requiem mode and over the heaven, but is a stand that is “Big WIN or BIG MISS”, required massive self-control, intelligence and creativity to use it in the 100%.
Animality: Allows legoshi to gain any ability of any animal he do desire and multiply it by 50 (like speed of cheetah, strength of gorilla, etc.), and if he say a specific part of his body, only that part it going to be power up, being able to use more abilities from another’s animals and combine them.
Nevertheless, he has to know the animal by not only name but also species, and it not have to be a real animal, but it has to be considerate as one or close to it. It doesn´t changes the physical appearance, only change either the resistance, strength, density, etc.
Example: The tough back of a turtle and the ability to fly of the eagle by using his arms. (Something similar of kars ability but with no need of grow up wings) or dragon breath.
ACT I:
https://preview.redd.it/p15pmqqoivn51.jpg?width=2666&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=c80df9a27a17091285b6a34a848ecd9ea65c8dcf
Its base in the shadow that hunts legoshi’s mind. With the idea that is something that just escaped from some containment, by wearing a prison looking pants and tied to a classic fetter-ball, have many rusty prison chains made of combination of iron and silver
(Chains: This represent the will and inner struggle of legoshi to keep this side of him under lock)
I added some things like the lines of legoshi beast mode, and dog-prison-collar with the word ACT and the number 1 on it.
ACT 1 try often to take over control of legoshi mind, making him puppet of his instinct and go in rampage, this make legoshi mostly invincible, almost immortal, but he have no control of his actions. Just imagine if legoshi have Cartoon cat´s personality and evilness.
Unique abilities:
Wild instincts: power up user´s senses, to levels that he can see the essence of the prey (enemies) through walls, he now can hear sounds in 300 metros radio and say what makes that sound, the same thing with the smell.
Beast mode: it gives to legoshi his iconic beast mode. As simple as it is, but this time - being aware of his stando- come with a insanely high pain tolerance (can even being injured like Kakyoin and still fighting like hell) and medium self-healing factor (like a nerfed deadpool).
Bloodlust: it gives legoshi the little push he need to fight with meat and bone, by starting an adrenaline over-saturation in his blood, but is only for extreme situations, ya probably can imagine why. It can be use with Beast mode at the same time.
Open-Wide: Gives legoshi the ability to put mouths in everything - even in his body-, to give ya a picture, is like Sticky Fingers ability, but whit mouths and without the range plus that it gives. Legoshi can make tunnel whit this mouths and anything or anybody that enter in the mouths without legoshi permission... Well, i guess is pretty obvious what would happen.
Example: Legoshi is tie-up by several chains of iron, when his captors leave him without guarding, a lot of mouths appears in his body - in his arms, chest, legs even in the neck- and chomp the chains off and suck them like spaghetti, the wolf stand on his paws and the mouths disappear. Legoshi, now free, pass his finger in one of walls and a big mouth appear showing the other side of the wall, the wolf use the mouth to escape.
ACT II:
https://preview.redd.it/unx7q1uuivn51.jpg?width=2763&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=d788091880ccf5e64f793714d795b60aea36a12b
This one comes after legoshi meet Gohin and build a deep relationship with him. Since he is a doctor and helped legoshi with his instinct issues. Leading him to take control of his strength (when they rescue haru). Showing him that he can use his inner beast to protect and help others (or in this case, his love one) but it do not mean that he accept that part of him yet, and still thinking that it must be under look and locked, but now, the containment is less heavy that the previous one. It wears straitjacket with Godin’s logo in the back, a light chains and the keys hanging in the belt of it, the sign of act II in the right arm and a ¨love one¨ sticker in the left arm (Louis, haru and jack)
Unique abilities:
Containment belt: can tie up enemies (stands or users) with the belts that come out of the straitjacket with limit of 8 belts, with a range of 10 meters, it also can transfer information from the user mind to digital devices of any kind and to other person by using said belt, they are almost unbreakable.
Lobotomy or brainwash: By a deep look into the enemy’s eyes, allow legoshi to go inside of their minds and screw it up, in way that can making them a sort of zombie-slave for a period of 10 minutes –however, is same that with [THE WORD] ability, it can be a longer period of time as more this is ability is use- this can be inflected by legoshi himself or act 2, but the conditions are that: no matter who do it, can be the user or the stand, it require to look into the enemy eyes (or the enemy’s stand eyes) to be effective, meaning that it need to get closer to the victim; like point blank and it takes 1 minute to complete (giving the enemy space for try to escape or for legoshi to being interrupted) anyways, you’re going to have a really bad headache after that.
Bio-chemical engaged: Since legoshi is the grandson of a komodo dragon, his front fangs have small hole in them, like a venom-base reptile, but he does not possess a bag of venom in his body. However he does have poison immunity, (this is not canon as far as I know – I mean the part of the small hole and venom immunity-, is just a thing that pop in my head). Well, this ability allows our baby wolf, uses his hybrid reptilian-canine fangs to inflect a hard bite and inject any kind of substance into targets veins, it takes 20 seconds to kill someone (depends on type of the liquid) and the victim does not realize that have been affected, until is too late A.K.A ¨u ded¨.
Extra note: Legoshi can poisoned stands as well, the ability allows him to bite stands, but it take the double of time to work, and it only can specific substances (poison, paralyzed liquid, drugs) that required time to make any effect.
ACT III:
https://preview.redd.it/dkc278tckvn51.jpg?width=3840&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=33475dfb94d72ecb30ea0e89c6fd6417ff52fd6a
The strongest version of the stand when it comes to abilities, but the most difficult to summon, cuz it need to be a complete balance and domination between act 1 & 2. Legoshi need be focus and calm to use it and keep through the battle.
It appears when Legoshi battle tem’s assassin, accepting eat Louis’s feet to save both of their butts.
Realizing that he cannot denied or ignore his carnivore status, either the upsides or downsides of being a carnivore, and he cannot change it, but it doesn´t mean than that part of him can be used for good, or to protect his friends in his full capacity at least.
Now completely free and balance, this ACT of [WILD SIDE] has total loyalty to the user.
It has written in the back the names of the people, that mean something to legoshi, the ones that he sees as friends or care about, wears the same pants that legoshi have in that part of the manga - when he unlocks the super beast-mode- and it was design to look like a function between act 1 & act 2
Unique abilities:
Wolf-pack: this is a very but VERY unique ability, is simple, it can bring to the battlefield the other to ACTs, in cases to fight multiples enemies, allow them to use predator in two more enemies. But in need a big concentration and mind strength from the user, cuz now, it is like he was controlling 3 stands at once.
Legoshi must to be careful in his choice of abilities to use, to which enemy send the ACT and which one use, the strategy to follow, to which act pay more attention, or just let go the other two ACTs on free run with the gamble of lose control over them. A least, it minimizes very much the harm that legoshi get from stands injures by distribute the pain.
Catarino spit: it is more for support stuff, in a few words is like [Crazy diamond´s] Ability, but, it only can heal people by the use of user´s saliva, and in a limited amount with a cool-down of 30 seconds.
The name is a reference to a Mexican song - I’m from Venezuela by the way- called ¨el paciente¨. The line that said ¨quisiera ser catarino pa´ curarme con saliva¨ translated something like: I would want to be a ladybug to heal myself with saliva -yeah, do not attempt to find any sense on that- which is another reference to other Mexican musician called Erasmo Catrino.
Catarino= male version of the word Catarina, which´s mean ladybug in Spanish.
The Lone wolf´s call: this one is for when the satiation turns ant color (very hard) Act 3 shout a big noisy howl, in a high tone that can kill a person or leaving them deaf, if they no cover their ears.
This not only can alert the alleys of legoshi about unseen danger, but also give them the localization of the wolf by showing his aura through the walls (if you has play dead by daylight before, ya can make yerself an idea how it looks like)
It can also bring for 15 minutes a copy of any stand (Even enemies) that has been in that area 10 minutes ago and give them just one specific command to either defend legoshi, attack the enemies or just distract them and take the user out there. The thing with this is: it makes legoshi very tired, to the point of almost has a complete blackout, so it is an only-emergency-move.
(The command cannot changed and the stands that show up go complete auto mode only following the previous command)
Example: Legoshi is outnumber, heavy hurt and bleeding, surrounded by enemies. Unable to fight any longer, he take a deed breath and realize ACT3 to call the cavalry. Then, in that moment, as if it was some king of horror movie thing: Stands begins to appear from the floor, the walls, the roof, even from under the rocks, looking at legoshi, waiting for an order. The wolf has no clue of what kind of stuff this things can do, so he select a simply but risky option and buy some time by making a diversion.
Meanwhile in the distance: The Cherryton family – Jack, Louis, Haru, Bill, Juno, Pina in company of Gohin-, run as faster as they can. They heard the backup call of their boss and leader, Legoshi, they know what that means; he is in trouble, and a big one.
So what you think people? Did you like it, lads? I hope so.
Well, i have another idea to make a gang of stand users with the characters of beastars, like the stardust crusaders, Mama Bruno squad (passione) or Josuke´s friends.
What ya think, did I should try?

2020.09.16 23:37 Patch99000 Questions from an independent voter. What are your opinions on climate change and systemic racism?

So academic fields in criminology accept this as being true, and government documents have been released showing racial disparity among sentencing lengths being longer for blacks versus whites. I was not aware that Conservatives reject this premise, so I was wondering why that is?
Why do Conservatives reject climate change and/or believe it does not warrant action? Do you guys believe that countries should start coming together to reverse the effects of this phenomenon?
Why is America the only developed nation on the planet to not have a universal healthcare system? Do you believe that America has a healthcare system better than that of other countries?
Why do Republicans advocate for the increasing of the military budget? Do we spend too much on the military already, and more than the next 8 countries combined? What are we doing with such a huge budget?
Why do Republicans believe Joe Biden is a socialist or communist? Is this a common belief among the conservative, or only among a vocal minority? Do conservatives believe that Progressives want to model America after a Socialist or Communist country like Cuba, Venezuela or the USSR?
This is not meant to be an attack, just curious as to what I’m missing. If anyone would like to see the specific studies I’m referencing, I’ll be glad to include them into my OP and send them to you. Thank you all in advance! :)

2020.09.16 01:37 Venezolanoanimations Legoshi´s stand (JJBA x beastars) ACT 1, 2 & 3

Legoshi´s stand (JJBA x beastars) ACT 1, 2 & 3
I haven´t seen jojo, i mean, not a full episode but some clips, a few wikis and fan made content, but i have seen beastars (the anime, and few parts part the manga) and i was wonder what if legoshi was a stand user, with the idea that the shadow of his savage tendencys was actually his stand.
Information: the STAND born from the instints of legoshi, he unlocks it when he was a pre-teenager, Posses different Acts that legoshi can select and switch through the battle. This is a dynamical stand meaning that it requires the user to fight by themselves with the enemy user (I mean against the person, not the stand) and each Act have its onw abilitys
Name: Wild Side (localization name: Savage Side or Primal Tendency)
Stats:
Power: Unknown
Speed: Unknown
Range: Unknown
Durability: Unknown
Precision: Unknown
Potential: Unknown
Abilities (general):
Predator: this can turn the tide of the battle real quick and make a [Wilde Side] one of the most powerful stands. It allows changing the stats of [Wilde side] specific way, turning it into the best counter for the enemy stando, and either making the user immune to the enemy stand ability, countering the ability, interfering, or just stopping the ability. In certain cases, the stand can build a temporal ability to “hunting” the enemy stand more easily. However, legoshi need to know the name of the stand and have a small idea of the ability.
Well, there´s the option of leave this to [WILDE SIDE] instincts with the promise of have 100% correct guess but is a huge gamble, because it leaves a big fat opportunity for the stand to get out of the user control and go completely ape-shit (like purple haze). However, it can only preying on one stand at a time
Example: it makes legoshi and the stand able to move in the stop time world or be fast enough to outrun made in heaven and it slow down to cancel the universe reset, be immune to the purple haze virus, and even give a big fat NOPE to the “you never reach the truth” of G.E.R- Gold Experience Requiem.
In few words: This stand can turn itself into the natural predator of any stand in the existence, and I mean every single one, even stands in requiem mode and over the heaven, but is a stand that is “Big WIN or BIG MISS”, required massive self-control, intelligence and creativity to use it in the 100%.
Animality: Allows legoshi to gain any ability of any animal he do desire and multiply it by 50 (like speed of cheetah, strength of gorilla, etc.), and if he say a specific part of his body, only that part it going to be power up, being able to use more abilities from another’s animals and combine them.
Nevertheless, he has to know the animal by not only name but also species, and it not have to be a real animal, but it has to be considerate as one or close to it. It doesn´t changes the physical appearance, only change either the resistance, strength, density, etc.
Example: The tough back of a turtle and the ability to fly of the eagle by using his arms. (Something similar of kars ability but with no need of grow up wings) or dragon breath.
ACT I:
https://preview.redd.it/p488ifj08en51.jpg?width=2666&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=733e38044f528d99e69298e39ccb0ba8b7a35238
Its base in the shadow that hunts legoshi’s mind. With the idea that is something that just escaped from some containment, by wearing a prison looking pants and tied to a classic fetter-ball, have many rusty prison chains made of combination of iron and silver
(Chains: This represent the will and inner struggle of legoshi to keep this side of him under lock)
I added some things like the lines of legoshi beast mode, and dog-prison-collar with the word ACT and the number 1 on it.
ACT 1 try often to take over control of legoshi mind, making him puppet of his instinct and go in rampage, this make legoshi mostly invincible, almost immortal, but he have no control of his actions. Just imagine if legoshi have Cartoon cat´s personality and evilness.
Unique abilities:
Wild instincts: power up user´s senses, to levels that he can see the essence of the prey (enemies) through walls, he now can hear sounds in 300 metros radio and say what makes that sound, the same thing with the smell.
Beast mode: it gives to legoshi his iconic beast mode. As simple as it is, but this time - being aware of his stando- come with a insanely high pain tolerance (can even being injured like Kakyoin and still fighting like hell) and medium self-healing factor (like a nerfed deadpool).
Bloodlust: it gives legoshi the little push he need to fight with meat and bone, by starting an adrenaline over-saturation in his blood, but is only for extreme situations, ya probably can imagine why. It can be use with Beast mode at the same time.
Open-Wide: Gives legoshi the ability to put mouths in everything - even in his body-, to give ya a picture, is like Sticky Fingers ability, but whit mouths and without the range plus that it gives. Legoshi can make tunnel whit this mouths and anything or anybody that enter in the mouths without legoshi permission... Well, i guess is pretty obvious what would happen.
Example: Legoshi is tie-up by several chains of iron, when his captors leave him without guarding, a lot of mouths appears in his body - in his arms, chest, legs even in the neck- and chomp the chains off and suck them like spaghetti, the wolf stand on his paws and the mouths disappear. Legoshi, now free, pass his finger in one of walls and a big mouth appear showing the other side of the wall, the wolf use the mouth to escape.
ACT II:
https://preview.redd.it/i7w9admoaen51.jpg?width=2763&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=89d63d95f40cfa4aa00ea71a5dbb7d85bebf7511
This one comes after legoshi meet Gohin and build a deep relationship with him. Since he is a doctor and helped legoshi with his instinct issues. Leading him to take control of his strength (when they rescue haru). Showing him that he can use his inner beast to protect and help others (or in this case, his love one) but it do not mean that he accept that part of him yet, and still thinking that it must be under look and locked, but now, the containment is less heavy that the previous one. It wears straitjacket with Godin’s logo in the back, a light chains and the keys hanging in the belt of it, the sign of act II in the right arm and a ¨love one¨ sticker in the left arm (Lousi, haru and jack)
Unique abilities:
Containment belt: can tie up enemies (stands or users) with the belts that come out of the straitjacket with limit of 8 belts, with a range of 10 meters, it also can transfer information from the user mind to digital devices of any kind and to other person by using said belt, they are almost unbreakable.
Lobotomy or brainwash: By a deep look into the enemy’s eyes, allow legoshi to go inside of their minds and screw it up, in way that can making them a sort of zombie-slave for a period of 10 minutes –however, the same with[THE WORD] ability, it can be a longer period of time as more this is ability is use- this can be inflected by legoshi or act 2, but the conditions are that, no matter who do it, can be the user or the stand, it require to look into the enemy eyes (or the enemy’s stand eyes) to be effective, meaning that it need to get closer to the victim; like point blank and it takes 1 minute to complete (giving the enemy space for try to escape or for legoshi to being interrupted) anyways, you’re going to have a really bad headache after that.
Bio-quimical engaged: Since legoshi is the grandson of a komodo dragon, his front fangs have small hole in them, like a venom-base reptile, but he does not possess a bag of venom in his body. However he does venom immunity, (this is not canon as far as I know – I mean the part of the small hole-, is just a thing that pop in my head). Well, this ability allows our baby wolf, uses his hybrid reptilian-canine fangs to inflect a hard bite and inject any kind of substance into targets veins, it takes 20 seconds to kill someone (depends on type of the liquid) the victim does not realize that have been affected, until is too late A.K.A ¨u ded¨.
Extra note: Legoshi can poisoned stands as well, the ability allows him to bite stands, but it take the double of time to work, and it only can specific substances (Venoms, paralyzed liquid, drugs) that required time to make any effect.
ACT III:
https://preview.redd.it/a0hd2cd3ben51.jpg?width=3840&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=5f31c417d97ee9b6fd721dd6e3fe0d3e4498b8d0
The strongest version of the stand when it comes to abilities, but the most difficult to summon, cuz it need to be a complete balance and domination between act 1 & 2. Legoshi need be focus and calm to use it and keep through the battle.
It appears when Legoshi battle tem’s assassin, accepting eat Louis’s feet to save both of their butts.
Realizing that he cannot denied or ignore his carnivore status, either the upsides or downsides of being a carnivore, and he cannot change it, but it doesn´t mean than that part of him can be used for good, or to protect his friends in his full capacity at least.
Now completely free and balance, this ACT of [WILD SIDE] has total loyalty to the user.
It has written in the back the names of the people, that mean something to legoshi, the ones that he sees as friends or care about, wears the same pants that legoshi have in that part of the manga - when he unlocks the super beastmode- and it was design to look like a function between act1 & act 2
Unique abilities:
Wolfpack: this is a very but VERY unique ability, is simple, it can bring to the battlefield the other to ACTs, in cases to fight multiples enemies, allow them to use predator in two more enemies. But in need a big concentration and mind strength from the user, cuz now, it is like he was controlling 3 stand a once.
Legoshi must to be careful in his choice of abilities to use, to which enemy send the ACT and which one use, the strategy to follow, to which act pay more attention, or just let go the other two ACT on free run with the gamble of lose control over them. A least, it minimizes very much the harm that legoshi get from stands injures by distribute the pain.
Catarino spit: it is more for support stuff, in a few words is like [Crazy diamond´s] Ability, but, it only can heal people by the use of user´s saliva, and in a limited amount with a cool-down of 30 seconds.
The name is a reference to a Mexican song - I’m from Venezuela by the way- called ¨el paciente¨. The line that said ¨quisiera ser catarino pa´ curarme con saliva¨ translated something like: I would want to be a ladybug to heal myself with saliva -yeah, do not attempt to find any sense on that- which is another reference to other Mexican musician called Erasmo Catrino.
Catarino= male version of the word Catarina, which´s mean ladybug in Spanish.
Lone wolf´s call: this one is for when the satiation turns ant color (very hard) Act 3 shout a big noisy howl, in a high tone that can kill a person or leaving them deaf, if they no cover their ears.
This not only can alert the alleys of legoshi about unseen danger, but also give them the localization of the wolf by showing his aura through the walls (if you has play dead by daylight before, ya can make yerself an idea how it looks like)
It can also bring for 15 minutes a copy of any stand (Even enemies) that has been in that area 10 minutes ago and give them just one specific command to either defend legoshi, attack the enemies or just distract them and take the user out there. The thing with this is that make legoshi very tired, to the point of almost has a complete blackout, so it is an only emergency move.
(The command cannot changed and the stands that show up go complete auto mode only following the previous command)
Example: Legoshi is outnumber, heavy hurt and bleeding, surrounded by enemies. Unable to fight any longer, he take a deed breath and realize ACT3 to call the cavalry. Then, in that moment, as if it was some king of horror movie thing: Stands begins to appear from the floor, the walls, the roof, even from under the rocks, looking at legoshi, waiting for an order. The wolf has no clue of what kind of stuff this things can do, so he select a simply but risky option and buy some time by making a diversion.

So what you think people? Did you like it, lads? I hope so.
Well, i have another idea to make a gang of stand users with the characters of beastars, like the stardust crusaders, Mama Bruno squad (passione) or Josuke´s friends.

new election fraud charges against BHK / Cement factory

BHK party leaders were earlier charged with buying voters during the 2017 elections.
The new report says: // during the 2012 and 2017 elections, the employees of [Gagik Tsarukyan's] AraratCement factory were threatened with termination unless they joined the BHK party and recruited voters. Some of them paid bribes to residents. //
A felony case is launched. More info is being gathered. https://armenpress.am/arm/news/1027607.html

Robik Kocharyan's "$600 million investment in Russian company" / April 2016

Parliamentary security committee chief Andranik K. says they gathered 800 pages of facts about April 2016 battles. The investigation of the former government's handling of the job is over and will be finalized this month. The Parliament will then decide how to publish it.
 
Andranik K. continues: // Robert Kocharyan is successfully preventing the March 1st trial from entering the main fact-presentation stage. They're manipulating the court to delay the process.
When Kocharyan said he didn't have the $2m bail to get out, various oligarchs agreed to help him.
One of the donors was [Russian tech giant] SISTEMA's director Yevtushenko. Kocharyan has been a SISTEMA board member for years, which means he must have had his "share". The public needs to know these details.
 
Years earlier, Garnik Margaryan revealed that the Kocharyan family invested $600m in SISTEMA. It was not denied. There were overwhelming facts. Garnik Margaryan was later arrested and released.
We need to know where that $600m came from and how they were invested in SISTEMA. The March 1st court recently agreed to discuss Kocharyan's finances, but behind closed doors, which prevented the public from knowing details. //
https://factor.am/283490.html

19 years ago today...

Vladimir Putin arrived in Armenia to discuss Kocharyan's plan to give Russia/Russian companies some of the Armenian infrastructures in exchange for debt cancellation. The first deal was worth $100m.

Parliament is Q&A-ing Constitutional Court nominees

Context: Constitutional Court has 3 vacant seats. The govt, the president, and the judicial branch have each nominated one candidate, who need to go through a Parliamentary Q&A and a secret-ballot vote before approval.
 
Opposition BHK and LHK will boycott the election process because they opposed the initial process that kicked out the 3 old judges and demoted HHK's Hrayr Tovmasyan. They also complained that none of the candidates met them one-on-one for talks.
 
The Q&A and appointment process will be monitored by the OSCE Human Rights division in cooperation with the Armenian HR Ombudsman.
 
The first candidate for Q&A is Yervand Khundukyan, nominated by the judicial branch. He was introduced to Parliament by a fellow judge.
The candidate said he doesn't support the proposed idea of merging the Constitutional Court with the Cassations Court.
"We the judges are generally conservative towards such changes. I'm against major reorganizations. The role of CC and Cassations currently differ from one another."
 
He wants CC to have more independent powers over interpreting constitutional norms, while at the same time to give Parliament the right to "respond" if CC rules something unconstitutional.
He was asked about his past activities and his role in the shutting down of opposition A1+ media outlet during the former regime.
During another Q&A session, Ind. MP Babajanyan got into a heated argument with the candidate and accused him of being generally "intolerant".
 
There were also personal questions about his sons' alleged "preferential" treatment in the military. He denied preferential treatment, saying the location of his son's service was chosen through the regular lottery system.
Meanwhile, the Corruption Prevention Commission will be vetting his past activities.
 
NGO chief Arthur Sakunts criticized the judicial branches' nominee, saying he has a questionable past and had 13 of his verdicts overruled by ECHR in the past.
"At one point Pashinyan said any judge who had a verdict overruled by ECHR should automatically resign. If this nominee is approved, it'll be a step backward from revolution's spirit."
 
The second candidate is Arthur Vagharshyan, nominated by president Sarkissian. He was presented to Parliament by the president's aide.
When asked to comment LHK's complaints that he didn't meet LHK for discussions, he said he wasn't aware that it was him who had to initiate such conversation. "Had I known that LHK wanted to talk, I would have contacted them."
 
The third candidate is Edgar Shatiryan, nominated by the government. He was presented to Parliament by Justice Minister for Q&A.

The farmer doesn't have to wait to find out the size of the harvest. It's "you harvest what you plant".
Similarly, the exports of mushroom, pumpkin and spinach grew 62%, reaching $3.2m.

Today Marutyan confirmed that they discussed it with the federal government and decided that public funds will be used. It'll cost $35m for the feds. "The government has reassured that they have the money," said Marutyan.

2020.09.14 05:59 Venezolanoanimations Legoshi´s stand (JJBA x beastars) ACT 1,2&3

Legoshi´s stand (JJBA x beastars) ACT 1,2&3

I haven´t seen jojo, i mean, not a full episode but some clips, a few wikis and fan made content, but i have seen beastars (the anime, and few parts part the manga) and i was wonder what if legoshi was a stand user, with the idea that the shadow of his savage tendencys was actually his stand.
Information: the STAND born from the instints of legoshi, he unlocks it when he was a pre-teenager, Posses different Acts that legoshi can select and switch through the battle. This is a dynamical stand meaning that it requires the user to fight by themselves with the enemy user (I mean against the person, not the stand) and each Act have its onw abilitys
Name: Wild Side (localization name: Savage Side or primal tendency)
Stats:
Power: Unknown
Speed: Unknown
Range: Unknown
Durability: Unknown
Precision: Unknown
Potential: Unknown
Abilities (general):
Predator: this can turn the tide of the battle real quick and make a [Wilde Side] one of the most powerful stands. It allows changing the stats of [Wilde side] specific way, turning it into the best counter for the enemy stando, and either making the user immune to the enemy stand ability, countering the ability, interfering, or just stopping the ability. In certain cases, the stand can build a temporal ability to “hunting” the enemy stand more easily. However, legoshi need to know the name of the stand and have a small idea of the ability.
Well, there´s the option of leave this to [WILDE SIDE] instincts with the promise of have 100% correct guess but is a huge gamble, because it leaves a big fat opportunity for the stand to get out of the user control and go completely ape-shit (like purple haze). However, it can only preying on one stand at a time
Example: it makes legoshi and the stand able to move in the stop time world or be fast enough to outrun made in heaven and it slow down to cancel the universe reset, be immune to the purple haze virus, and even give a big fat NOPE to the “you never reach the truth” of G.E.R- Gold Experience Requiem.
In few words: This stand can turn itself into the natural predator of any stand in the existence, and I mean every single one, even stands in requiem mode and over the heaven, but is a stand that is “Big WIN or BIG MISS”, required massive self-control, intelligence and creativity to use it in the 100%.
Animality: Allows legoshi to gain any ability of any animal he do desire and multiply it by 50 (like speed of cheetah, strength of gorilla, etc.), and if he say a specific part of his body, only that part it going to be power up, being able to use more abilities from another’s animals and combine them.
Nevertheless, he has to know the animal by not only name but also species, and it not have to be a real animal, but it has to be considerate as one or close to it. It doesn´t changes the physical appearance, only change either the resistance, strength, density, etc.
Example: The tough back of a turtle and the ability to fly of the eagle by using his arms. (Something similar of kars ability but with no need of grow up wings) or dragon breath.
ACT 1:
https://preview.redd.it/sj8l331ac1n51.jpg?width=2666&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=a53ea25a441eb07eb0b6757cb3c9095300546017
Its base in the shadow that hunts legoshi’s mind. With the idea that is something that just escaped from a containment of some kind, by wearing a prison looking pants, tied to a classic fetter-ball and having many rusty prison chains made from combination of iron and silver
(Chains: This represent the will and inner struggle of legoshi to keep this side of him under lock)
I added some things like the lines of legoshi beast mode, and dog-prison-collar with the word ACT and the number 1 on it.
ACT 1 try often to take over control of legoshi mind, making him puppet of his instinct and go in rampage, this make legoshi mostly invincible, almost immortal, but he have no control of his actions. Just imagine if legoshi have Cartoon cat´s personality and evilness.
Unique abilities:
Wild instincts: power up user´s senses, to levels that he can see the essence of the prey (enemies) through walls, he now can hear sounds in 300 metros radio and say what makes that sound, the same thing with the smell.
Beast mode: it gives to legoshi his iconic beast mode. As simple as it is, but this time - being aware of his stando- come with a insanely high pain tolerance (can even being injured like Kakyoin and still fighting like hell) and medium self-healing factor (like a nerfed deadpool).
Bloodlust: it gives legoshi the little push he need to fight with meat and bone, by starting an adrenaline saturation in his blood, but is only for extreme situations, ya probably can imagine why.
ACT2:

https://preview.redd.it/sfcztiqlc1n51.jpg?width=2763&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=84a4eb53d49812267f27b0848bd6565dd21e33df
This one comes after legoshi meet Gohin and build a deep relationship with him. Since he is a doctor and helped legoshi with his instinct issues. Leading him to take control of his strength (when they rescue haru). Showing him that he can use his inner beast to protect and help others (or in this case, his love one) but it do not mean that he accept that part of him yet, and still thinking that it must be under look and locked, but now, the containment is less heavy that the previous one. It wears straitjacket with Godin’s logo in the back, a light chains and the keys hanging in the belt of it, the sign of act II in the right arm and a ¨love one¨ sticker in the left arm (Lousi, haru and jack)
Unique abilities:
Containment belt: can tie up enemies (stands or users) with the belts that come out of the straitjacket with limit of 8 belts, with a range of 10 meters, it also can transfer information from the user mind to digital devices of any kind and to other person by using said belt, they are almost unbreakable.
Lobotomy or brainwash: By a deep look into the enemy’s eyes, allow legoshi to go inside of their minds and screw it up, in way that turn them into a zombie-slave for a period of 10 minutes –however, just like [THE WORD] ability, it can be a longer period of time as more this is ability is used- this can be inflected by legoshi or act 2, but the conditions are that: no matter who do it, user or the stand, it require to look into the enemy eyes (or the enemy’s stand eyes) to be effective, meaning that it need to get closer to the victim; like point blank and it takes 1 minute to complete (giving the enemy space for try to escape or for legoshi to being interrupted) anyways, you’re going to have a really bad headache after that.
Bio-quimical engaged: Since legoshi is the grandson of a komodo dragon, his front fangs have small hole in them, like a venom-base reptile, but he does not possess a bag of venom in his body. However he does have venom immunity, (this is not canon as far as I know – I mean the part of the small hole in his fangs and venom immunity-, is just a thing that pop in my head).
Well, this ability allows our baby wolf, uses his hybrid reptilian-canine fangs to inflect a hard bite and inject any kind of substance into targets veins, it takes 20 seconds to kill someone (depends on type of the liquid) the victim does not realize that have been affected, until is too late A.K.A ¨u ded¨.
Extra note: Legoshi can poisoned stands as well, the ability allows him to bite stands, but it take the double of time to work, and it only can specific substances (Venoms, paralyzed liquid, drugs) that required time to make any effect.
Act 3
https://preview.redd.it/8m2bur8be1n51.jpg?width=3840&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=27ab056411e50d3f93d85147b4af1df8779dd197
The strongest version of the stand when it comes to abilities, but the most difficult to summon, cuz it need to be a complete balance and domination between act 1 & 2. Legoshi need be focus and calm to use it and keep through the battle.
It appears when Legoshi battle tem’s assassin, accepting eat Louis’s feet to save both of their butts.
Realizing that he cannot denied or ignore his carnivore status, either the upsides or downsides of being a carnivore, and he cannot change it, but it doesn´t mean than that part of him can be used for good, or to protect his friends in his full capacity at least.
Now completely free and balance, this ACT of [WILD SIDE] has total loyalty to the user.
It has written in the back the names of the people, that mean something to legoshi, the ones that he sees as friends or care about, wears the same pants that legoshi have in that part of the manga - when he unlocks the super beastmode- and it was design to look like a function between act1 & act 2
Unique abilities:
Wolfpack: this is a very but VERY unique ability, is simple, it can bring to the battlefield the other to ACTs, in cases to fight multiples enemies, allow them to use predator in two more enemies. But in need a big concentration and mind strength from the user, cuz now, it is like he was controlling 3 stand a once.
Legoshi must to be careful in his choice of abilities to use, to which enemy send the ACT and which one use, the strategy to follow, to which act pay more attention, or just let go the other two ACT on free run with the gamble of lose control over them. A least, it minimizes very much the harm that legoshi get from stands injures by distribute the pain.
Catarino spit: it is more for support stuff, in a few word [Crazy diamond´s] to heal people ability, but it only can use it by saliva, and in a limited amount with a cooldown of 30 seconds.
The name is a reference to a Mexican song - I’m from Venezuela by the way- called ¨el paciente¨. The line that said ¨quisiera ser catarino pa´ curarme con saliva¨ translated something like: I would want to be a ladybug to heal myself with saliva -yeah, do not attempt to find any sense on that- which is another reference to other Mexican musician called Erasmo Catrino.
Catarino= male version of the word Catarina, which´s mean ladybug in Spanish.
Lone wolf´s call: this one is for when the satiation turns ant color (very hard) Act 3 shout a big noisy howl, in a high tone that can kill a person or leaving them deaf, if they no cover their ears.
This not only can alert the alleys of legoshi about unseen danger, but also give them the localization of the wolf by showing his aura through the walls (if you has play dead by daylight before, ya can make yerself an idea how it looks like)
It can also bring for 15 minutes a copy of any stand (Even enemies) that has been in that area the 10 minutes ago and give them just two specific commands to either defend legoshi, attack the enemies or just distract them and take the user out there. The thing with this is that make legoshi very tired, to the point of almost has a complete blackout, so it is an only emergency move.
(The command cannot changed and the stands that show up go complete auto mode only following the previous command)
Example: Legoshi is outnumber, heavy hurt and bleeding, surrounded by enemies. Unable to fight any longer, he take deed breath and realize ACT3 to call the cavalry. Then, in that moment, as if it was some king of horror movie thing: Stands begins to appear from the floor, the walls, the roof, even from under the rocks, looking at legoshi, waiting for an order. The wolf has no clue of what kind of stuff this things can do, so he select a simply but risky and buy time by making a diversion.
Meanwhile in the distance: The Cherryton family – Jack, Louis, Haru, Bill, Juno, Pina-, run as faster as they can. They heard the backup call of their boss and leader, Legoshi, they know what that means; he is in trouble, and a big one.
So what you think people? Did you like it, lads? I hope so.
Well, i have another idea to make a gang of stand users with the characters of beastars, like the stardust crusaders, Mama bruno squad (passione) or Josuke´s friends.
What ya think, did I should try?

2020.09.13 00:55 seahawksgirl89 Why do so many people seem to think countries like Sweden, Germany, New Zealand, etc. are socialist when they’re all capitalist?

I’ve seen a growing movement of Americans in heavy support of socialism that use the EU, the Nordic countries, even Australia as examples of socialism working. While they have solid safety nets and social programs like Universal Healthcare, they all seem to be pretty staunchly capitalist, ranging in more free or mixed market versions of it.
It seems the only real socialist countries today are China, Vietnam, Laos, Cuba, and Venezuela (I admit I could be missing some).
Do people just not really understand what socialism is? Do they want what Sweden has or what Cuba has? I’d love to learn more about what exactly modern US socialists want and if that is actually socialism or just an incorrect use of semantics. Which countries are you hoping the US could be more like economically and socially?
EDIT: I’m totally aware that conservatives call anything democrats want socialism, these aren’t the people I’m asking about. I’m referring mostly to leftists who explicitly use the term socialism in referring to what they want.

2020.09.12 05:40 Zakrel AITA for blocking my forgotten friend?

I'm the kind of guy that likes to keep to himself, I don't have many friends and I usually don't aproach anyone since there's usually nothing worth talking about, I also have mostly no social media, so I tend to speak only when someone aproaches me, despite this I usually try and help or bring fun whenever i'm invited into a group
Thing is, whenever I'm doing stuff alone to relax like drawing or enjoying a game or whatever, I feel extremely uncomfortable about having people talking or trying to socialize with me unless it's my family, and even then.
I have a history of blocking people if I don't want them to be with me since I don't know how to ask people to leave me alone without being rude and usually bring out excuses like my internet cut out or something like that
So, about a year ago I was playing a game when a guy (Let's call him Rad), invited me to join his group along with some of his friends and we became good friends, he wasn't the only cool dude since friends were also fun and welcoming any time I joined them, it was a blast whenever we played and I even introduced them into DnD since I didn't have anyone to play with, they loved it and we had game nights almost every week, we even had a whatsapp group where we spoke about every and any topic regarding videogames, dnd, our personal lives and some other stuff, things were great for about six months and I had a blast since it was the first time I've ever had a group of friends, much less as great as this one
But even then, after some time, we started speaking less and less, the games were ever so slightly less common and the group died a slow painful death where people lamented nobody spoke there anymore, I ended up cutting all ties with them since we didn't really spoke anymore and I didn't want to feel attached to an unexistant group, it was fun yeah, but I had to deal with my personal stuff so, I left, I tought about Rad some times since I kinda missed having friends but... Idk, it was just kinda meh at that point
About a day ago Rad contacted me out of nowhere, we were surprised to see eachother and I was happy to speak with him after about a year of no contact, but even still, I didn't feel like we had the same connection anymore, he told me about how the pandemic gave him a hard time and basically ruined his opportunity to get out of his country (he lives in venezuela) and about how food was low and he could see his ribs in the mirror
Now, I felt bad for him but didn't really care, I just wanted to play my game in peace and do whatever, I feel terrible not feeling anything for him but I just can't I have no Idea why
Anyways, he wanted to play to relieve stress and I really didn't want to so I just blocked him out of any contact he could have with me, in a second any trace I ever existed was gone to him and that's it, he just dissapeared, I feel terrible about being like this but I don't know how to fix it anyways
Am I an asshole?

2020.09.10 21:32 Roshan_nashoR Situation of the Left in your country

How is the Left doing in your countries? This includes electoralism and direct action/non-electoral organisations.
I'll start with Kosovo, I'm by no means an authority on Kosovo's economic history, and this is just my take on why the political situation is the way it is, based on what I know.
Since I'm an unsophisticated lib, I'll start by looking at the situation from an electoral perspective, there are no registered Socialist or Communist parties running for elections. As for the parties that got >10%, they are:
Vetëvendosje (VV) - 26.2% (SocDems)
LDK - 24.5% (Conservatives who like the EPP)
PDK - 21.2% (Used to call themselves “Centre-Left” and flipped to “Centre-right” overnight (in their rhetoric, of course), when Trump won the elections in America)
AAK/PSD - 11.5% (Two parties in a pre-electoral coalition; AAK are right-wing and more nationalistic; PSD are officially SocDems who really like talking about how they are “Leftists” – but they are in the pockets of our local oligarch family, the Devollis.)
Apart from VV, who have actually opposed privatisation, and advocate for stronger welfare – all of the other parties’ self-declared ideologies should be taken with a huge grain of salt. They are all economically neoliberals, and socially conservatives with varying degrees of nationalism. Nevertheless, they're still social-democrats, and not anti-capitalists.
As for non-electoral direct action, its not a thing here. There may be the occasional student Marxist or DemSoc, but these are few and far between. I personally haven’t seen any explicitly leftist or anti-capitalist organisations here, but I haven’t lived in Kosovo for the past 4 years, so things may have (hopefully) changed since then.
You get the occasional Yugo-nostalgic boomer who misses Yugoslavia, not because he’s a Marxist, but because he likes the welfare system back then, and the Yugoslav passport which was much stronger than the passport of Kosovo. Honestly, I can’t really blame them, since the current social welfare check is roughly 80 euros/month for people with disabilities or those living in extreme poverty. This money sometimes doesn’t even cover the cost of medication alone. Did I forget to mention that the cost pf medication isn't covered by the state? Yeah.
Unemployment is around 25%, with youth unemployment being as high as 40% – (these are all pre-covid numbers, the current employment situation is even worse).
The minimum wage is 130 euros /month – whereas the average private sector wage is ~400 euros /month. Labour protections are very weak for a large part of the working class who have to work in the informal sectors of the economy (which is partially the reason why the official unemployment rate is so high).
Apart from food (which is cheaper than western countries), most of the other consumer items have Western prices – whereas electronics are more expensive than in the west (as a result of the very high import duties that the state levies).
You’d think that these material conditions would lead to a mass-radicalisation of the local working class, but that hasn’t been happening.
There are historical reasons for this:
The Albanian people in Kosovo (who make up 93% of the population) have never historically experienced industrial capitalism. Initially, under the Ottoman Empire, the vast majority of the population worked either as peasants, who practised primitive subsistence farming, or petit bourgeoisie Artisans and skilled tradesmen who worked in the cities and towns of Kosovo. The second group were self-employed, or employed a small amount of apprentices to work under them. As a result, the relationship of the workers to the means of production was quite different to what the western working class was going through. Overall, it was more of a semi-feudalistic system than a capitalist one.
There was also a small minority of bourgeois merchants – These were people who travelled across borders to buy and re-sell things to make profit, but never really employed people to work under them.
When industrialisation first came in, under the Kingdom of Serbia and later the Kingdom of Yugoslavia, it was very limited, and the factories/mines mostly employed the Serbian minority. So, the present Albanian population didn’t go through proletarianisation until the time of SFR Yugoslavia – which was a state with a strong social safety net and welfare – which never lead to the development of class antagonisms, since there was only a working class, and an (economically-speaking) relatively hands-free bureaucratic class (at least compared to Albania, and Eastern Bloc countries).
Not to mention that by the time illiteracy was greatly reduced, the ethnic and nationalist conflicts had already begun, so rhetoric shifted towards unity by shared ethnicity, and not shared class interests.
The (Albanian) population of Kosovo has only really experienced Capitalism for the last 20 years, and it isn’t the 18th century, Oliver Twist industrial capitalism – but the much more hidden and less in-your-face financial Capitalism of the 21st century, operating under the auspices of the modern bourgeois mass-media. Overall, these factors have hampered the development of class consciousness here.
Whatever happens though, as long as we remain a de-facto client state of the US that requires American support to exist without being invaded by cough cough, I don't see a bright future for the Left here, public criticism against the US by elected officials here would anger America, and at this stage nobody would be willing to risk losing our independence just so they can practise anti-imperialist rhetoric. If we do eventually become a fully-recognised state, and the threat of a new war and losing our independence isn't looming, then I can definitely see more people starting to distance themselves from the US, and its imperialistic foreign policy.
Currently though, I will have to enjoy the clown spectacle as our government rushes to kiss America's ass, by recognising Juan Guaido as "interim president" of Venezuela (don't laugh!).

The GBB is from Northern Venezuela specifically the Paraguana region. When I look up weather and climate for there its humid and hot with no rain and ocean wind that keeps the humidity up. So why is it recommended to keep them in arid climates? Is there something I'm missing?

2020.09.09 04:23 dubven List of Thinkpads I've owned

So I was thinking about the thinkpads I've owned since my addiction began about 7 years ago, this is a summary that could be interesting, I will try and provide the most accurate info I can.
- T61 x2: Bought them in a trip I did to Venezuela, I don't remember the price but I made some profit when I came back to Mexico. One of them was my daily until I got the T400.
- T400 x2: I bought one of them and the other one came almost as a gift because it had some missing parts. It was my daily for a couple of years in college, got a slice battery in it and with Ubuntu Mate it was a breeze to use.
- X230: Was my daily for about 1 year, had a 9 cell battery, docking station, 8GB of ram and a 120GB SSD. It was my favourite thinkpad mainly because of IPS panel, such a thing of beauty.
- T420s, T420, T430: Bought them from a warehouse for about 130 (I don't remember correctly), all had missing things, I sold both T420 and T420s and kept the T430 which I sold about 1 year later, was my daily too.
- L380 (Work): This is actually my least favorite of them all.
- T470p: Bought in FB marketplace for 60bucks with a dead mobo, RMA'd it and sold it for 410 bucks.
- X280: bought 300 bucks, sold it to my ex for 350.

My dream thinkpad is the X390, which I am saving for, currently I am thinkpadless but I saw an X61s and contacted the seller but didn't reply :(.

2020.09.08 08:48 ArianaJ01 Reconnecting with my cousin when I thought it was impossible

Hey all, hope you're well and safe.
So, when I was younger I used to go to Venezuela for my summer vacation, my aunt (mom's sister) lives there so we would spend the vacation at her place which was nice. She has a daughter who's 2 years older than me and back then we were almost inseparable whenever I would go there and I almost always cried on my way home because I missed her so much. But as time went on and as the both of us started high school, the trips to Venezuela became rarer and we drifted apart. I still followed her on Instagram and I did talk to her parents (my aunt and uncle) but the actual conversations between me and her became much much rarer and all I would get as an interaction is a "oh btw she says hi" from her parents.
Fast forward to present day and my cousin has moved to Mexico and is now pretty famous and thriving. She's a freestyle dancer who works shows and concerts and also does some cool choreographies on YouTube, and in general she's essentially become my opposite, where I'm quiet and reserved she's loud and extroverted. Recently she announced she's gonna be launching her own clothing brand, which is huge, and I almost felt compelled to send her a DM to congratulate her. It had been years since we spoke and idk if she was gonna respond or even read my message, but I sent it anyways for my own satisfaction. Within half an hour, she responded, and not with a generic "Gracias" either, she gave me a response which showed she cared. We chatted for a bit and then she told me she had to run errands and I thought "Guess that's all the time she had for me" but she did ask for my number and I gave it to her, but I wasn't expecting much.
As I finished dinner and went back to my room and got on my phone to go into a YouTube rabbit hole and then I get a message from her which essentially said "I'm facetiming you rn, pick up" and then she did facetime and we had our first proper conversation in years and it was the happiest I had felt in months, we talked for hours and caught up on almost everything, the good, the bad and everything in between. It's been a week since that call and we've been interacting pretty regularly since then.
I never thought in a million years we would reconnect the way we did, especially not after she's gotten so ahead in life. Yes she's not exactly the same girl I knew when I was a kid (for one, she's a bit of a potty mouth now lol) and I'm not exactly the girl she knew as a kid, but we still have a bond, and that's honestly the best thing about 2020 for me so far

Questions Answers
Did you have any sort of health insurance during this time? (I'm thinking mainly in the United States where an unexpected visit can cost thousands) yes. There are specific TRAVEL INSURANCE which cover medical and unforeseen expenses like the one you mentioned. I use Worldnomads, which costs me around $800 a year and cover the whole world.
the below is a reply to the above
The hell?! Can you get that even if you stay in only one country? I live in the U.S. and it costs $500 a month for insurance. I believe it depends from your country of residence. Ouch
This is such an incredible story! This is one of the coolest things I’ve ever heard or read. I just recently finished reading “The Motorcyle Diaries”. I gave you a follow on ig too. What’s the next country you plan on traveling through? Thanks a lot!! :) I am planning to ride back to Australia via Asia. Not quite sure yet about the itinerary...since covid stopped me for now. Thanks again for the nice words!
Sorry to ask yet another money question, but I think this is the biggest block to doing something like this for most people! 1. When you went to LA initially (when you were 24), you say you pretty much only had enough money for the plane ticket. How did you sustain yourself when you arrived and how long did it take for you to 'get on your feet'? 2. How do/did you deal with 'scarcity' mentality of perhaps one day not being able to find a job (even an odd job, or a temporary position) and running out of money, and facing a more unstable housing/financial situation? Thanks! Thanks for the question mate. Again, absolutely plausible. When I flew to LA, I had saved some money for the plane ticket and arranged a couch for the first 2 weeks with a friend of a cousin of a distant uncle (the only real connection I had a the time). Meanwhile I was trying to sell my motorcycle at home in Italy. I sold it 2 days after I left and my family helped me completing the sale and sent me the money overseas. I think I sold the bike for 1200 euros. That lasted me quite a while. I did back and forth from Italy to USA few times and I was getting some occasional jobs in Milan to pay for my trips. I made just enough to pay for flights and accommodation. But I remember that a lot of food was offered to me. I was sleeping on people's couches and at times I was eating one Starbucks Frappuccino a day. I know...not the best diet...but I think It was around $2.5 and full of sugar and coffee so It kept me going. Generally I survived thanks to people I met along the way and their generosity. I had a wonderful time in USA. Most people are really willing to help. Some other instead want to take advantage of you. Learned both lessons the hard way, I guess.
Eventually, after thousands of closed doors, I managed to find an IT company that was willing to sponsor me for my visa stuff. It was a complicated time for me, mostly because I wasn't prepared mentally for such cultural gap and such challenges. When you are alone, without your family and friends around, and you have to take care of yourself and your life, you start to know who you really are.
Somehow It is an experience that I would recommend to everybody. Those are some of the most intense yet rewarding experiences I had in my life.
the below is a reply to the above
Thanks for answering! I was curious to know the reality of upping and moving somewhere without a job waiting for you or much money in your pocket and a frappuccino for your daily meal is certainly a peak behind the curtain!! But I agree with you that most people are kind and willing to help. I believe in that in general. I admire your resilience. I've certainly dealt with a lot of closed doors and isolation from family and friends too, but often get scared to "do what I really want" because I'm so afraid of being stuck somewhere without money. Wishing you continued success and safe travels! I wish you good luck too! I am sure you can endure much you can think. Go for it!
Can I join you ?! Lmao This is my Dream .. good for you man . Good for fuckin youuuu !!! Share the love & grow strong . Thanks for the support mate!! Go for it! You can do it!
How come you’re happy and I’m depressed as fuck? I don't want to open a can of worms, but I was super depressed too. Depression is a state of mind in which you tell yourself that "something is wrong". Whether the wrong comes from inside or outside of you, your mind is telling you that there's something that needs to be fixed. It's a good indicator that you are on the path of healing yourself if you want.
Sincerely, if one is not depressed a bit, these days, it would be completely unaware of your surroundings and even your own existence.
Before leaving for Australia, I spent 2 and a half years in deep sadness (you can call it depression if you will), caused by several factors. I had a meaningless job (for me), I HAD TO live with my parents and I was even going through break up with my ex, which ripped my heart apart. I basically didn't get out of my room for 2 years, while I was helping my grandma on her deathbed and my dad was sick with Alzheimer. Fun, uh?
I am not saying that it's good to be depressed, but you can choose to use it as a propeller to wish for something better. You can change your reality. It's entirely up to you, how you see the world and the opportunities you have in life to grow.
the below is a reply to the above
I understand what you are trying to say but I have to disagree. It's a bit like telling a person with a broken back that if they wished hard enough to walk, they will walk just fine. Depression doesn't work like that. You may have made it out of it but to somebody that is currently in a deeply depressive state, the only thing they will hear is: "You aren't trying hard enough, you could do it but you just aren't even trying. You are a useless piece of shit because you are too lazy to change. It's entirely up to you! You useless fuck." I agree with you. But I believe that there is somehow a bottom line...and when reached somebody will try to react to it and fight back. It's a self preservation mechanism.
the below is a reply to the above
Nah, believe me, there is no bottom. If there were, there wouldn't be people killing themselves. I don't have any self-preservation left, for example. I'm so dead inside that I don't even bother to kill myself because I even lack that energy. It's just chugging along, time flies, and I'm not really there. Seems like you are inside "the spiral" mate. You ll get out of it, trust me. Sounds silly but enjoying a bit of sun, seemed to have helped me at that time when I felt like that. In any case, just give it time and don't give up. Try to get outside and stay in nature if you can. It doesn't change much but It helps. Stay strong, mate. Give it time.
the below is a reply to the above
I live in one of the most beautiful areas of the world (county Galway in Ireland), right at the sea. I can see it from my window and the beach is 5 minutes away. It doesn't help. I don't even have the energy to go outside, even on a nice day. You've been lucky to get out, all I ask is you not blaming people that can't. It's not a thing of willpower or sunshine. It's a thing of lacking any kind of willpower. I've been like this for over 20 years, sometimes better, sometimes worse. That's not a spiral anymore. It's a chute. I'm sorry mate. I hope you ll get better anyway.
I was just looking at your Instagram photos... Wow! You take gorgeous photos and have such an interesting story to share. Have you ever thought about writing a book? It seems to me that travel and adventure magazines would also pay you to write stories for them. Just something to think about. Good luck! Thank you, but I think that I'm not doing anything that hasn't been done before. I do like to share and help people see the world for the beautiful place it is...but that's about it. Thanks for the compliment, though!
Do you avoid public attractions where you have to pay a fee like castles, palaces or other famous tourist attractions. If you avoid them, are you curious about them and want to visit them but you don’t have enough money or don’t you care about tourist attractions? Good question! I recently posted the story on my instagram about Machu Picchu in Peru, which I refused to visit because of the exorbitant entry fee. $70 USD to enter the site is an unreasonable amount...regardless the fact that it is undoubtedly a beautiful site to visit. I usually avoid big tourist traps, but sometimes you gotta pay. The most I've paid was $35 to enter Iguazu Falls and $35 to enter Perito moreno Glacier. Both worth it sincerely, even if overpriced. I left the others aside and went for the cheap ones instead.
I am from Greece.Where in Greece have you been?And how did you make money during these years to "pay the bills"? Oh mate!! what a beautiful country! I had a great time there! I spent most of my quarantine and lockdown in Crete, but I entered Greece from Albania, then rode down to the Peloponnese and rode to Athens, Evia and even Santorini!! Check my insta for all the amazing places I've seen! I am still stoked for the great hospitality I received from the greeks and the amazing places I've seen!! For the economical part of your question, please see previous answers, where I explained in details the money factor.
How do you plan what route you will take? Do you navigate primarily with map+compass? GPS on your phone? Both? If M+C, what sort of compass do you use, and where do you obtain your maps for each country or locality? Hello! I mostly use Google maps for my navigation and planning. Most of the info i get from the places I want to visit, are obtainable from the app itself. It's a brief guide but works for me. If in remote areas I use Maps.me, which works offline and has trails too.
the below is a reply to the above
Have you tried getting a sponsorship from google for using their maps I actually thought about it...but never really went through with it. Maybe they let me mount a gigantic 360 camera on top of my helmet and then I'll be stuck with it. Haha
How do you deal with dirty toilets in some areas where you cannot find any usable ones if that has ever happened? Also what do you do when there are none around, like on a desert road or something? This and my trust issues with getting help from strangers is what keeps me from even thinking about doing something like what you're doing. Very pertinent question as I find myself sometimes with no toilets around. There's a basic system, which I wasn't really accustomed to...that is "squatting"...that help with the mentioned activity. When in the wild, you need to have the curtesy at least of (some privacy, obviously) digging a hole in the ground with a stick or something...and then covering it up when you are done with your business. Toilet paper and wet wipes have to be bagged and disposed in the first available garbage bag. This concerned N2, clearly. For N1, being a guy, it is quite practical. But there are a lot of girls travellers which simply "hide behind something". It is quite unorthodox but I guess you get used to it eventually. It's just a matter of doing it the first few times. Then It becomes ok.
What was the moment you thought, ''It was all worth it''? It was when I arrived back in Sydney, after riding all around Australia... After the first few days of riding I remember I had still some doubts on my mind about resigning and selling everything, etc. When I returned in my own beloved town, it was like i saw myself in the mirror. I saw myself as the person I was before...and the one I had become. And I didn't like the person I was before...so I understood that my life had changed forever. I realized that giving everything up was worth the realization of who I was at that time. I also realized that I couldn't stop there...
Wah! Thanks for the AmA! I've always wanted to have a chat with people who like to travel the world. Your answers are very straightforward, I love that! Did you ever get into trouble with local people like pickpockets and tourist scam? Did you ever have any emergency medical troubles? Do you try to enjoy local street food? (If so, did you ever had any stomache because your body isn't used to that type of food?). Err I think I've made too many questions at once. Have fun & enjoy your life adventure, whatever you decide to do in your future! No problems! It's a pleasure!! So, I never really had problems with pickpocketers. But I also always look around while walking in big cities. As I mentioned before, the only bad occurrence I had was in Canada, where somebody stole my rusty tools bag from my bike, while parked in Vancouver. I never had medical issue...hurray!!! I do LOVE to try all food. The "weirdest" the better! I think I have a fetish for local street food. So yeah, I eventually had a bit of stomachache but it was mostly my fault. I had a raw shrimp from a market in Mexico. Not wise! haha I built my immune system I think, just drinking tap water from everywhere. If locals don't die...I shouldn't either, right!? ;)
Is your ass now made of steel? I had to draw a line in the middle of my bum to see where my cheeks were... ;)
Have you been to Bulgaria yet? How much did you see if you have? No, I haven't. But It's definitely on my list.
the below is a reply to the above
Are you taking reccomendations for places to visit in countries? Because i have a few reccomendations for bulgaria. Of course!! 😊 maybe send those to me as DM so those don't get lost in the post. Cheers!! 🙏
Have you ever worried about not being able to get a job later on once you stop travelling, due to the big gap between jobs in your CV? I am not an HR guy...but If I was... I would hire a guy that travelled the world on a motorcycle to have on my team, instead of somebody with straight AA, tons of certificates and no life experience. but maybe I'm wrong. ;)
100k+ on a KTM and no major problems? INCONCEIVABLE! Do you have an ADV th'd? ahha I know right!??! It's actually almost 200000 km mate and still going strong with no mechanical issues!! Crazy!! I am in awe too! I am on ADVRIDER, yes. But don't have a thread about this.
When did you find out about COVID and how has it affected your travels? Thanks and warmest regards! Oh man, that was such a bummer! I left italy on the 15th of Feb, 10 days before the first case in Lombardy. One week later it was already mayhem. As soon as the Italian disaster exploded, people started to look at me as carrier of virus...like they were doing with asians in general, no matter if they were from indonesia or mongolia or china. I entered Albania and there were rumors of borders starting to close. So I headed to Greece, since it is still EU and I could get sent back to Italy easily. After spending 4 months in Greece, I took the first available ferry back to Italy, where I am waiting for the pandemic to settle a bit. Then I'll leave again.
Hey Paolo, I recently rode a motorcycle across Vietnam and it got me inspired to ride from Alaska to Argentina, hopefully leaving next summer, virus permitting. I’ll most likely be riding my Honda CRF250L, not quite a KTM haha. Do you have any advice for a young man looking for more adventure? Yes. Great bike first of all!! You ll love it! South america is kind of paradise for motorcycling so...yeah. I would recommend you to pick the right seasons to ride alaska and patagonia. Crucial for the outcome of your expedition.
the below is a reply to the above
I appreciate it! I’ll definitely keep the seasons in mind for Patagonia and have already made sure to head to Alaska in the summer. I mean, I went to Alaska in september and weather was amazing...and rode through patagonia in autumn which was chilly but absolutely fantastic! Less people and beautiful colours!
the below is a reply to the above
Less people would definitely be a plus! What are the average speeds in South America or are certain country’s faster than others? I’m worried my CRF might not be fast enough in places. Your bike is absolutely fine. Do not worry about that
Ciao! I am a italian too, precisely sicilian. Next summer I will probably travel all sicily, how much money do you think i need to bring, and how can I save as much as possible? I want to stay a bunch of days while traveling through cities. Like 3 days at Agrigento, for example. Any suggestions are welcomed! Sto scrivendo in inglese pure per far vedere ad altri i tuoi suggerimenti Ciao! well, I cannot tell you how much you'll need to travel...even just Sicily. It depends where you are willing to sleep, what are you willing to sacrifice in terms of food and what time of the year you are planning to travel. Just know that food and accommodation are the most expensive elements of your trip.
Did you get any inspiration from Emilio Scotto’s ride around the world? Any plans (or desire) to try and break his record? I do not know him. I also never read the Motorcycle diaries or Zen and the art of motorcycle. Also never seen long way around or tried to grow a beard like Che guevara.
Just doing my thing, my own way. But there have been many before me for sure.
Did you ride in Nepal as well? If so, how did you find the roads and the journey through Nepal? Also what was your most adventurous experience here? I am a Nepalese so I am asking these to learn what people think when visiting my country. I haven't been that part of the world yet. But It's on my list!!!
Did you ever get down and dirty with anyone? Yes. Mostly with my motorcycle. :)
Why did you choose such a big bike? Is all the driving on roads? What modifications did you make before heading out? I chose my dream bike. I had no Idea where I would have taken my motorcycle in the future. At the time of purchase, I was in love with it. I still am!
I just added a lighter muffler, skid plate and rear rack. The bike itself is a marvel of technology.
I go on and offroad. see my youtube videos... ;)
Hey man, back when you were trekking across south america, did you visit Venezuela? When I was In brazil, It didn't occur to me to enter Venezuela. Then when I reached Colombia, the border with it was closed for vehicle due to the unstable situation. I really want to go. It's the pebble in my south american shoe. ;)
I have enjoyed watching your travels on IG. What is the scariest situation you have ever gotten yourself into while traveling? Thanks for tagging along! I had few close calls with my bike...but I guess, If you ride a motorcycle, it is quite common. I almost fell into a canyon... Ouch
Hi Paolo. Where would you say the best roads were? I mean, good condition, few potholes. Where would you say the best views were? What kind of spare parts did you bring along to make sure you could always keep going? Mmm best roads...i think ecuador had pretty spectacular new roads. At the time I think most roads were 5-10 years old and conditions were optimal.
Best views probably Peru. Nothing can beat the view from a 6000 m mountain...
You can't possibly carry all spare parts. You never know what could happen...but I did bring a spare front tube in case of a flat and some spare screws. Duct tape and cable ties are also a must for any traveller
[deleted] I do not have a single moment which I consider my favorite. Generally speaking, I could say that the "feeling of freedom" that riding with no schedule and limitation gives, Is the happy memory that I will bring with me even when this experience will be over. The scariest is certainly the moment when I almost fell into a canyon, while riding in Peru. Colca Canyon is one of the deepest canyons in the world and I lost control of the bike, riding down on a tiny dirt road. Fortunately I managed to stop right at the edge of it...but It took me a good 10 minutes to recover from that close call.
Have you ever feared for your life? As in, did it ever cross your mind that you might get mugged or something? Have you ever been mugged while traveling or been in that situation? Do you carry some sort of knife or gun? Never feared for my life. No. Maybe it's a bit naive of me but I've never felt in need to carry a weapon to protect myself. I don't think there are people out there willing to kill me to take my stuff. But i did cross countries where this kind of stuff happens. In any case, the probability that this would have happened was in my opinion way smaller than the contrary. In fact if you ever have the chance to talk to some of the other thousands of travellers that have been around for a while, none had the need to carry weapons or any sort of defense aid to protect their personage or belongings. Not even girls.
Have you had any accidents or near misses in your travels? If more than one, are there any that stand out? Tons!! Unfortunately riding a motorcycle doesn't leave any choice. I almost fell into a canyon in Peru. That wasn't good. Also, close calls with maaaany trucks in Bolivia. There are no driving rules there much... I crashed at 100km/h in Argentina and crashed against a wall, in San Francisco, distracted by my GPS. Normal day at the office! 😅
What was your favorite place you’ve traveled to so far? I have one favourite place, which I always mention because I support the underdogs... I also love nature and food, so...
Ecuador is my favourite country.
the below is a reply to the above
Any specifics or highlights about Ecuador you can share? Looking for my next trip with a friend! Galapagos is like Jurassic Park. But with no fancy shopping center. Would recommend Baños and Cuenca area too.
What was it like going through the Middle East? I've always wanted to explore that part of the world. Haven't quite reached the middle east yet. Stopped by the covid. booo
Any issues or denials to get your bike through customs anywhere? Nope. Just showing my paperwork and off i went! So far I haven't been in countries that required Carnet de Passage.
I see you have good amount of followers on insta and You tube. Have you thought about using it as a source of income like travel bloggers do or have you already done that? If not have you thought about doing it? Also might be rude but how much did you save in those years that can last so long. I mean if i were to do it like is there any bracket amount you'd like to give us? Also what about your fam? Not enough to generate income on both i think. But yeah, maybe I ll give it a go in the future. Not sure though...because you need to constantly being absorbed by the platform and create content to generate a good income...which I saw with other people became a burden, in the long run. I saved up 40k in 5 years of work. Best advice I can give is to spend your money wisely. Do not spend it in booze or clothes or any other unnecessary commodity that is not relevant in the long run. Being constantly focused on the preparation of the trip is 80% of what it actually takes to go fo it.
My family has been generally supportive about my trip. They sometimes worry but they do because they care. They don't fully understand my life choices but they respect those because they realized I am the only one responsible for my own future.
What is the worst weather you have had to ride through, and how did you deal with it? Oh man!! 2 days. One was when I rode 750km under frozen rain in canada, against 60km/h headwind, along lake superior. After i reached my destination, i watched the news and saw that they closed the road I just rode on because it collapsed, devoured by the amount of water that fell from the sky. Average temp was 2 degrees Celsius.
The other day was when I arrived in Vancouver 2 years ago in march. 30 cm of snow. -5°C and worst snow storm in the last decade. If i didn't die that day...
Great AMA. Just watched a few of your YouTube videos. Do you have music playing constantly while riding? How has your music likes changed and is there any songs you still play today from the Australia trip? Thanks I never listen to music while riding. I actually put some earplugs and try to enjoy the ride and let my thoughts flow. It's my meditation moment. Music I listen to change constantly...depending on mood and situation. I probably still have some ACDC tunes laying around in my playlists somewhere. ;)
How did you cross the Darian Gap? There were 4 options: - shipping container (Not so cheap, time consuming and risky in terms of getting the bike out from the port) $750 - air freight (fast. 4 hours and you are from one side to the other. not cheap, quick and headaches free) $1000 - fishermen boat (slow. Unsafe? Bike gets covered in salt for 5 days) $600 - sailing boat (5 days cruise to the san blas islands. Expensive. But fun holiday overall) $1200
I went with the plane.
Where you ever afraid or unsafe? I’ve wanted to backpack through South America, but as a single woman I’m afraid of putting myself in a dangerous situation. It's completely understandable to be worried in that sense. What I can tell you is that there is nothing to worry about. There are women travelling solo in many ways (backpacking, cycling, motorcycle, etc) through south america and they are FINE! No problems. I can list you the "do and don't" about travelling, but I believe that having a bit of commons sense is crucial. If you look for female solo travellers on insta, you will find tons of them. I am sure that they can give you a better and more specific understanding of what entails to travel solo as a woman in third world countries. But again, DO NOT WORRY. It is SAFE.
the below is a reply to the above
I did it in Europe and Iceland, but South America makes me more weary. What about bringing children? Did it feel safe for kids? Also, when it came to your hostel stays, did you ever see any families? Kids will have a blast in SA! I met plenty of families travelling with kids. It is challenging because of the school thing but it is possible!! The internet and online classes nowadays...
People in SA are very family oriented and have special care for kids. It is an incredible experience for kids to see a reality like the one over there.
Hostels are not quite the best for kids, I admit it. You can find plenty of bnb alternatives and family rooms all over the continent. The same options are available all over the world (hostels, bnb, hotel, motel, apartments, etc).
I'm thinking of purchasing the same bike, is it the R model?. What made you choose this bike as opposed to something that is shaft driven? how did you find the chain maintenance aspect over so many miles? It's amazing there were no mechanical problems at all. Is there a specific brand tyre you use and how many miles would you get from a set? were there many puncturers or blowouts? Knowing what you know now, would you have changed anything with the bike or added something before beginning the journey? I ride the 1190 adventure NON R model. I prefer chain because it's sincerely I wouldn't want to find myself with broken shaft in the middle of Bolivia. Chain can last up to 40-50k km if well maintained and lubricated. It doesn't take much of your time and it helps reminding yourself that you have to take care of your bike too. I really loved Shinko 705 as tyres. Cheap and super grippy in all surfaces. I didn't have many punctures at all. Maybe 4 in the whole trip! Lucky!
Sincerely, this bike has been beyond perfect and I am still in awe by the reliability and performances of this machine. Kudos to KTM for making such a monstruos bike! If you are not into fast corners and putting your knee down in turns, the R model is actually better because of the customizable shocks. Mine comes with WP electronic suspensions which can't be replaced with others.
Hi Paolo, been a long time follower on Instagram (since South America). Great to see you on here! Initially when you went to work in Australia, did you receive a job offer before moving there, or did you find it once already settled? How come you still have residency in Australia when you've travelled the world for years? Have you ever received any sponsorships along your travels (E.g. from companies or Instagram itself)? If not, have you considered going down that route in order to support your continuous journey? Best of luck, and I look forward to see where the road takes you. Hey! Thanks for tagging along since such a long time!!
When I moved to Australia I didn't have a job. I spent the first months just looking for some temp gigs, while settling in that new country, at the time. It was crazy because in 2010 people here in Italy thought I went mad for leaving my safe job here, and moving to Australia with no job and as an immigrant. Turned out to be a good choice after all!
I have residency there because I am also a citizen there. Got my Australian passport in 2014.
I haven't received any sponsorship or any monetary endorsement from any companies through Instagram. I don't have enough followers I believe to be considered an "influencer".
the below is a reply to the above
It's always a pleasure tagging along. That's fantastic. I want to work in a different country but all of those I've looked at only allow a work permit if you have been offered work or have experience in specialised manager positions. And as far as I know, one cannot apply for jobs while on a tourist/visitor visa. How did you work around that? Amazing achievement to receive your Australian citizenship in just 4 years! Ah, I see. What a funny world we live in. I moved to Australia with a working holiday visa, which allowed me to work only for 6 months at the time for each employer. I started working for a recruitment agency and then got bought and hired by my other company, that eventually sponsored me for my residency.
How has your sex life been on the trip? Haha sorry, it does say ask me 'anything'. I guess what I'm saying more specifically is a lot of guys have a fantasy of doing exactly what you're doing and doing plenty of "socializing" in different countries no strings attached. Just wondering if your trip has been fun in that regard or if it's too difficult when staying in hostels etc I did answer this question already but I'll go into few details again. Travelling in hostels is good and bad. You meet a lot of people but there's no privacy. I tend to respect other people generally so I avoid having sex on bunk beds, bathrooms and stuff like that (which happened to me instead). Not the best to have your bed rattling and having to wear headphones with loud music, trying to get some sleep. Haha
Anyway, the main "issue" in travelling and socializing is that you always have to leave. So unless you go partying and go for the wild night...every night...it's not simple to get close to somebody, even in that sense.
Anyway, my sex life was definitely complicated, compared to the one I had when living in one fixed place in Australia.
Amazing. A question: were you an experienced bike rider before you set off on your trip, or did you decide to use a bike on a whim, and learned as you went? How much biking experience would you recommend to someone before they try a trip like this? Also, what are your thoughts about using a bike vs a car? With a car, you can sleep in the back, making accommodations cheaper, and maybe a bit more luxurious than a tent, but they're also larger, more unwieldy things that cost more to fuel and repair. Hey! I've been riding motorcycles since I was 14yo (even earlier). So I guess I was kind of an experienced rider, but I wasn't an experience long distance rider so... Not sure if it makes sense to you.
I met different people who recently learned how to ride, doing the same thing I was doing with small learner bikes. I mean, there are literally no limits on what can you do if you want to do it and just...do it, without thinking too much about it.
You know what they say... 4 wheels move the body, 2 wheels move the soul.
Have you been to the Philippines? If so what was your experience and opinion about the place? Nooo! but definitely want to go there!!! I have a lot of Filipino friends in Australia and they told me about some incredible places to visit!
Just out of curiosity, when you go across continents. Do you start saving up weeks beforehand since the tickets will cost more than your usual expenditure and not to mention shipping your bike as well? Hopefully I can meet you in real life someday! I'm from Hong Kong but just started learning Italian during the pandemic! Grazie mille! Kudos to you, my friend!! Learning Italian is quite the challenge! just know that even most italians can't speak proper italian, so you'll be fine once visiting the country! ;)
I've been living off my savings so I've been just crossing countries like that. no much planning. Just hop on the bike and go. Shipping of motorcycle only occurred from Australia to South America and from Canada to Ireland. First one was by shipping boat and second one was with Air Canada Cargo. Incredibly, flying was cheaper.
Did you ever wish you had a smaller bike? I‘ve wanted to ask this question for years, ever since I saw a Ewan McGregor travel show, “Long Way Around.” In Ewan’s journey, he used a large BMW 1150/1200, and he was always joking about how jealous he was of the little bike (Ural 500cc?) his friend eventually rode. Thanks in advance! Yes. I was wishing I had a smaller and lighter bike when I was riding on sand in Brasil or Australia. But then I was quite happy to have a 1200cc engine under my seat when I was going up on some 5000m mountains or during long 800km day rides.
I mean, there is no perfect bike... And there are pro and cons with any kind of bike.
You just have to pick yours and go with it!
Have you heard of the bike dog? The_bike_dog on insta Yes!! I follow him on Insta!! Amazing feed!
Where are you now and what are your next 5 countries on your list? Italy now! The next 5 up will depend on how covid behaves in the next few months.
Did you ever make it to New Zealand? If so what was you favourite place in NZ? If not, do you plan to in the future? I've been to new zealand but not with my motorcycle. It is one of my dreams to ride there though. After what I've seen...
Amazing! Are you going to cross Austria? We have Schnitzel and Apfelstrudel 😉 Ahah Austria is next on my list of countries to visit. I PROMISE! ...i mean, i ride a KTM!
Have you ever been attacked by locals? If so, what was the reason? The only locals that really attacked me were stray dogs in Chile. Hundreds of those in the streets. They get pretty hostile when in groups...and they aim at the wheels mostly. They chase you and bark at your ankles. Haha 50 meters of pure adrenaline
How do you arrange money for food and fuel? How do you see yourself living your old age given that you likely don't have enough savings for retirement.... to survive in your 50+ or retirement age? I already addressed the money factor, but I will answer to the second question. I see myself as an old man...living in a 4x4 campervan, parked on some remote beach in Australia, alone, maybe with a dog... Probably with an empty bank account and no big house, but a life full of memories and hopefully a better understanding of myself as a human being. You are only afraid to die if you haven't fully lived, mate!
What do you enjoy about this lifestyle? And what’s a typical day like for you? The best thing about this lifestyle is the freedom that comes with it. No alarms in the morning, nobody that tells you what to do, no schedules. Free.
I wake up, have coffee and a small bite while checking my social media. Then I look at the map to see where and which routes could be feasible for the day. Then i pack and ride off. Half way in i look for accommodations in the potential destination. When I get there i check around and see if i like it or not. If yes I stay, otherwise i move on to the next location. This is something that only travelling on a motorcycle can give you. Fast change of location, no traffic, easy stop and go, low visibility. Then i find my spot for the night, unpack and enjoy my daily meal. Usually fresh veggies or some local products. At night i rest or sometimes exercise a bit.
Great AMA! 1. Do you ever wish you were with someone, to not be alone in your experiences? Or maybe for people to tag along for a while? (A 2nd person all the time might be a bit much if you like being by yourself). I’ve travelled a little bit by myself and really enjoyed being alone, but sometimes afterwards you might want to talk about an experience with someone who was there with you. I found the freedom of being alone more important, but I’ve never travelled as long as you. 2. Do you ever think of a future where you want to settle down? Maybe wife, kids, and all that? Did your wishes about that change while on the road? Good luck to you! I have travelled with another rider and even a couple. Not for me. It is hard to find another person you get along with 100%, especially when you are used to have it your way for so long! Said this if you are a solo rider, travelling with a couple 2up, is complicated because they usually have different speed and needs. I prefer to not have a partner with me. It would change the overall experience and I wouldn't be able to be by myself in silence and have moments of absolute peace. You can't be in touch with yourself and embrace the change with another person constantly reminding you who you are and who you have to be. Unfortunately the downsides are sometimes the moments of loneliness...but again, I got used to it. And now i prefer it this way.
As far as family and settling down goes...i am 40 years old and most of my friends are married, with stable jobs and kids. So yeah, it's a constant reminder of my choice in life. But so far, i am happy with what I have done. It's a choice and I am aware of the consequences.

2020.09.07 22:36 pikey_mikey [WTS] World silver coins: Mexico, Egypt, Iraq, Syria, Ottoman, Swiss Cantons, South and Central America, etc.

Shipping
Shipping is $4 tracked for up to 8 oz and at cost for any amount above within lower 48. For shipping to Alaska, Hawaii, APO, or US territories I will have to specifically determine the rate which will be at cost. I can ship anything less than $20 in value, less than 3 oz in weight, and not too bulky in a stamped envelope for $1.10, however there will be no tracking. I will ship outside the US, but the rate will have to be specifically determined. It looks like world wide shipping would start at $9 for Canada and $11 for all other countries if you want tracking. With USPS experiencing historic delays and a plethora of other issues, I will not ship out of the country without tracking. Once I deposit packages in a USPS receptacle, you are at the mercy of USPS and as they are in responsible charge of the delivery, you should take up any issues with USPS.

Payment
I accept Google Pay, Venmo, Zelle, Cashapp, and PPGS. I will not take PPFF as I do not wish to get my account suspended. If comments are not required, leave the comments section blank. If a comment is required (should only be Venmo), do not under any circumstances mention Cuba or Iran. Only comment with something really vague and not sale related. Buyer pays applicable fees on all payment methods. Note that the fees for Google Pay, Venmo, Zelle, and Cashapp are ZERO. Note that the fee for PPGS is +3% of order total +$0.30. I will no longer accept checks or money orders.

Other Notes
No trades at this time. I generally only ship on weekdays, so purchases on Friday through Sunday will ship out on Monday at the earliest. Additional pics available upon request for coins over $5. I don’t have the time to mess around taking more pictures of coins less than $5 in value. Please PM instead of using chats. I will answer if I see it, but I cannot guarantee that I will see if you post in a chat which may mean you miss out on a deal.

Please no time wasters. I do not guarantee that I will answer PMs in the order received. I will answer them in whatever order I see fit which may be out of order. If I don’t get timely responses or timely payment, I will sell the coins/notes to the next interested party. I believe my prices to be fair as they are based off of Ebay sold listings and community market trends. Reasonable offers are welcome, but I don’t have much room if any to negotiate on smaller purchases. Offers of spot will not be tolerated. If I want to sell it at spot, it will be listed as such.

I still have plenty of old sales that are still active. I can work on the prices and combine shipping if you are so inclined as to look up any old sales.
