Weapon Enhancement Analysis: Beams, Cannons, and Mixed Setups: Post-Pilot Rework

Hello!
Last year with the release of Vanguard Specialist and the intel revamp I made a post comparing the various firings modes available too us for energy weapons. You can find that analysis here. Now with the Pilot rework having been out for around a month without any changes, I think its time to revisit this as we got a large improvement to Reroute Reserves to Weapons.
The link to the spreadsheet from last year remains the same for people interesting in seeing it.

Purpose and Scope

Before getting into the results, I wanted to clarify some things that seem to have been...misunderstood with the first post, mostly because people didn't seem to understand what I was doing with these.

Build Selection

The builds selected for break-point analysis are simply to get stat distributions for the various things that are impacted by energy weapon enhancements; notably these are:, Cat1, Cat2, CrtH, CrtD, Haste, and Weapon Power. While most of the nominal firing modes apply a final damage buff, some (like RRtW and ERL) apply indirect buffs which act like final modifiers with the opportunity for saturation. As such to really compare the lot of them we need to take these 6 values into consideration.
These builds were chosen not for any particular reason other than at the time they were very well known, easily and publicly accessible, and represented various reversible costs. These builds represent a spectrum of where players could be in the games sandbox and represented various building ideologies from many different perspectives in the community.
This is not a commentary on those builds. At the time of writing the first post I assumed that these representations could be abstracted and used to gauge an equivalent value for comparing builds. That is鈥攁t similar cost levels鈥攖he 6 values I was comparing against would be more or less equal regardless of the platform or build firing mode it was devoted too. I still believe this is a reasonable assumption to make. As such I am applying firing modes to ships that cannot actually use the power. Again, this is done as an abstraction of relative power and costing within the sandbox rather than an analysis of each build.

Basis of Firing Mode Advantages

This is not designed to evaluate the specific build choices of one to another. For example, I did not take into consideration Preferential Targeting when evaluating Beam Overload and Cannon Rapid Fire. While this is a viable and potentially very powerful starship trait, that would mean we are not comparing Beam Overload / Cannon Rapid Fire to the other modes but rather that of BO/CRF with Preferential. This has the same logical connection as using something like Insidious Tactics when talking about Surgical Strikes against the other modes.
Basically, in order to make this as much of a direct comparison as I can, we are removing any supporting traits. This includes uptime effects like firing mode extenders. While firing extenders modes again are very good, it doesn't help us to compare as several firing modes have different ways of achieving higher ability uptime.
As such, the next criteria missing from this when evaluating final numbers is the actual base damage of the weapons themselves. I am not taking into effect of applying the firing mode to a higher base damage weapon. Again the point is a comparison of firing modes, not firing modes and weapons. It is relatively easy to multiply the 'base dps' of a weapon type by a value than trying to compute and list all possible combinations of weapon types and the resulting firing modes.

Evaluation Criterion

The goal is to evaluate the relative power of each of the firing modes; 2 for Beams, 2 for Cannons, and 3 Specialist powers, at the appropriate ranks and seats. This is done by calculating the impact each has to the builds resting state without the firing mode and then applying the firing mode to the collection of stats.
There are some interesting build choices that do however change in these instances. The only suitable build change I am actually making to these ships is optimizing the spread of Dmg and CrtD mods on weapons and the choice of which Spire Tactical Console to take, Vulnerability Locators or Exciters. I did this because
  1. Not everyone from who we pulled builds from chooses to build using the optimal weapon mods so its hard to know if each build did the math or not. As such applying this to all builds for all weapon modes eliminates any potential bias this selection makes.
  2. Spire Tactical Console spreads are similarly unoptimized. This computation also changes depending on the firing mode, as something like Surgical Strikes offers a large Critical Chance and Critical Damage buffs, as well as Accuracy increases that also adjust these values. As such I felt it unfair to compare Surgical to the other modes without
This selection process is done inside the spreadsheet itself rather than any hand done calculation, and is the genesis of the module that exists inside TRINITY. As such these choices are handed out to automation rather than personal guess and helps reduce any potential bias in mode evaluation.

Results

The hardest thing with this is making the choice to determine how to actual compare these values across build types. Since this is to create a comparison, I opted to take the overall average of the resulting Damage Modifier (DM') over the base Damage modifier (DM) before firing modes. While an average works, there are some interesting side effects. For example, the effects of Surgical Strikes, Reroute Reserves to Weapons, and Exceed Rated Limits are all stat buffs rather than a final damage value. As such these are not easily directly comparison. Surgical Strikes is the hardest to compare in this regard as the effects vary by around 40% from highest to lowest effective multiplier, while something like Cannon Rapid Fire is relatively consistent at only 0.8% variation. However, as we generate the graphs for both seats and ranks, we see that this variation is largely due to how impactful these powers can be at the lower end of the toolbox.
As a note, I've also included CSV as a single Target in all of these, just to show how much of that firing modes damage potential is wrapped up in the ability to hit 3 targets at once. The same can be said for FAW, but the numbers work out to be basically the same.

Comments on RRtW and Engine Power

Somethings not included in all of this would be how engine power is drained when using RRtW, and if the power drains your power the ability shuts off. Since Reroute Reserves to Weapons 3 is now the power with the highest single target damage potential, granting a huge amount of haste at rank 3 and out pacing even Surgical Strikes 3, it's likely people will want to explore this power. This evaluation wasn't designed to cover the scope of that but I will talk about how the power appears to work some for people who want to use it.
Unlike regular firing modes, it appears that RRtW is an applied drain rather than a reduction to both current and target power values in the method that normal weapon firing works, and functions similar to the observations I made here. As such engine power recovery is dependent on EPS rather than power refund. This does mean that EPS is a much more significant influence on these builds as the target value for the engine subsystem hasn't been reduced (basically where 250% EPS would have cut it, we may want 350% or higher with RRtW).
In the previous post I did some computations and analysis and how to use these numbers; that method hasn't changed and I feel that it is still the best source for this discussion and will not be repeating those calculations here, simply because the only thing that has changed is RRtW.

Analysis

Now that we have an appropriate approximation of the final modifier of weapon enhancements, we can do some interesting comparisons, without having to delve into calculators. This is a bit of an abstracted comparison but it should be good enough to gauge the relative effectiveness of various combinations of weapons and enhancements.

Weapon Base Damages

Weapon Type Base Damage Shots Cycle Time Effective DPS
Dual Heavy Cannon 290 4 5 232
Dual Cannon 193 6 5 231.6
Wide Arc Dual Beam Bank 400 4 7.5 213.33
Dual Beam Bank 260 4 5 208
Single Cannon 160 6 5 192
Beam Array 200 4 5 160
Omni (not Set) 200 4 5 160
Omni (Set) 188 4 5 150.4
Turret 100 6 5 120
For the purposes of this analysis I will be using this table for weapon stats. While there are a few exceptions to these values, they are by and large the overall values you will find.

Assumptions on RRtW calculations

From here on I will be making some assumptions here, simply because the amount of variables aren't very computable with this method. For example, RRtW drains power every single time the weapon cycle occurs. With only the 225% haste from rank 3, this means you are starting a new weapon cycle every 1.5s 5/(1+2.25), which means that you drain -8 engine power every 1.5s for every weapon slotted.
Now this is a drain, and can be mitigated with higher engine power setting and more EPS. These are choices that are not going to be universally present on all builds such as BO3 vs CRF3 vs SS3 and so on. We have an actual tool to compare these in the very minor build selection changes. I want to instead focus on the macro level overview of these build types. As such I will be comparing the RRtW sustained uptime in a theoretical sense. How any build reaches that point and the sacrifices they have to make to get that uptime is up to the user.
As a final note on this, RRtW seems to be higly susceptible to serve lag and large haste sources added in. Using something like the Altamid 3pc to get another 100% haste can, depending on the user, cause the weapons to stop firing altogether. These are things that we can replicate on paper but will depend largely on the users network performance to know.

Firing Mode Uptime; Better Damage or Higher Uptime

Lets take an example from the newly buffed RRtW vs the tried and true Beam Overload. We get Final Values of x2.864 for RRtW at rank 3 but x1.853 for Beam Overload 3. From here we can ask some questions? How long do we need to sustain RRtW for it to be better than a full uptime BO3?
That's a relatively simple calculation:
2.864*(t/15) + 1*(1-(t/15)) = 1.853 t = 6.86s 
So 6.86s is all we need on RRtW3 to be better than BO3, which is entirely doable. Therefore if you can maintain engine power above 0 long enough with RRtW3 active (in this case 6.86s or more) then even an unoptimized RRtW should provide more DPS than a full uptime BO3. However with RRtW we can do something interesting, and that's use cannons. So what happens when we compare BO3, CRF3 (1.797), and then RRtW3?
For this I'm going to compare 5 DHCs and 2 Turrets vs 5 DBBs vs 2 Omnis. There are other options and combinations (for example using both the Terran beam and cannon), but I want to make this a little more straight forward.
  • Dual Heavy Cannon: 232 dps
  • Dual Beam Bank: 213.33 dps
  • Turret: 120 dps
  • Omni (Set): 150.4 dps
  • Omni (not Set): 160 dps
For the two conditions then we get the weapon base DPS as being:
Cannons: 5*232 + 2*120 = 1400 Beams: 5*213.33 + 150.4 + 160 = 1377.05 
We then have the new formula:
(2.864*(t/15) + 1*(1-(t/15)))*1400 = 1.853*1377.05 t = 6.62s 
Therefore, we need to only sustain 6.625s of RRtW with cannons for it to theoretically do more damage than a full uptime BO3. We can do the same calculation for RRtW3 vs CRF3 and find:
(2.864*(t/15) + 1*(1-(t/15)))*1400 = 1.797*1400 x = 6.414 
Notice here as well since this is cannons to cannons, the 1400 base DPS appears on both sides. So brining into account weapon types and setups only matters when comparing non-similar weapon configurations.

Mixing Weapon Types

On that similar note, RRtW doesn't need us to compare only cannons or only beams, we can instead use a combination. Turrets are subjectively weak than omnis, but you can only slot two omnis at a time. What happens when we do the same calculations above but instead us two omnis in the back with cannons upfront?
Cannons + Omnis: 5*232 + 150.4 + 160 = 1470.4 
RRtW3 (C+O) vs BO3:
(2.864*(t/15) + 1*(1-(t/15)))*1470.4 = 1.853*1377.05 x = 5.92 
RRtW3 (C+O) vs CRF3:
(2.864*(t/15) + 1*(1-(t/15)))*1470.4 = 1.797*1400 x = 5.72 
So we see that again the time to maintain RRtW decreases as the overall DPS of the weapon configuration increases. Basically with the new RRtW if you can maintain 10s uptime it should be always better than the standard BO3 or CRF3 single target modes.

Specalist Single Target Modes

So....with that said, what about comparing ERL3 (x1.902), SS3 (x2.278), and RRtW3? They have the same benefits of mixing weapons, but don't suffer from the same penalties where the buff turns off when you run out of engine power. With Vanguard Specalist, these have a hard 15 second duration.
However not all Specialist firing mode ships are made the same. Most Intel Ships tend to be 5/3, Most Pilot Ships tend to be 5/2, and most Miracle Worker ships tend to be 4/4, and not all can slot DHCs so we will do both a BO and DHC setup. Lets compare these weapon setups to each other and attempt to find at what uptime RRtW3 breaks even.
5/3: 5 DHCs + 1 Turret + 2 Omnis: = 5*232 + 120 + 150.4 + 160 = 1590.4 5/2: 5 DHCs + 2 Omnis: = 5*232 + 150.4 + 160 = 1470.4 4/4 DHC: 4 DHCs + 2 Turrets + 2 Omnis: = 4*232 + 2*120 + 150.4 + 160 = 1478.4 4/4 DBB: 4 DBBs + 2 Turrets + 2 Omnis: = 4*213.33 + 2*120 + 150.4 + 160 = 1403.72 
So from this we can now look at our test conditions. Again, we are taking a macro level overview since we are assuming RRtW is maintainable engine power and hunting for the break even. We are comparing against the average weapon layouts, and not taking into account this like Tactical console slots or other supporting weapons. These things matter but we're doing a macro level analysis here to just throw stuff at the wall and see what sticks.
RRtW3 (5/2) vs SS3 (5/3)
(2.864*(t/15) + 1*(1-(t/15)))*1470.4 = 2.278*1590.4 x = 11.78 
So even with a weapon missing, we only need to sustain RRtW3 for 11.8s before we beat out a conventional 5/3 SS3 build.
RRtW3 (5/2) vs ERL3 (4/4 DHC)
(2.864*(t/15) + 1*(1-(t/15)))*1470.4 = 1.902*1478.4 x = 7.34 
RRtW3 (5/2) vs ERL3 (4/4 DBB)
(2.864*(t/15) + 1*(1-(t/15)))*1470.4 = 1.902*1403.72 x = 6.56 
As expected here, ERL gets trounced as RRtW doesn't even need a full 10s to beat it. This is again because we are comparing against a 4/4 setup. It doesn't look great for ERL as we propagate this to other conditions like 5/3 (where ERL gets beaten by RRtW3 at 8.5s).

Specialist Comments

Something not really taken into account here when comparing mode to mode is that not all specializations are made equal, but are also comprised of aspects not unique to the firing mode powers. Miracle Worker gets an extra slot, and some extra powers that help like Mixed Armament Synergy and Narrow Sensor Bands. Intel gets Override Subsystem Safeties and Unconventional System triggers, and Pilot gets Fly Her Apart. So when comparing firing modes like this it does leave out some rather large platform based considerations.
However, these are once again micro level build decisions that I didn't want to focus in to hard. While we can certainly do the math for these powers and thereby compare鈥攐n paper鈥攆iring modes and as a whole builds this way using these numbers, the math starts to get large, and because I suffer from scope creep I'm going to resist the urge to include them here to try and remain topical.

Stats Allocations

The last thing I want to talk about is how the impact of these 3 change as you change some stats. Things like power drain, Haste, Cat2, CrtH, and CrtD are all touched by these three specialist firing modes. When we plot these to a chart we get this:
Build Cat2 CrtH CrtD Haste SS3 RRtW3 ERL3
1 31.60% 12.62% 113.25% 0.00% 2.662 3.451 2.164
2 52.77% 21.63% 154.91% 5% 2.586 3.340 2.115
3 82.23% 74.80% 323.96% 45.67% 2.258 2.706 1.829
4 186.80% 62.96% 418.22% 36.50% 2.276 2.817 1.879
5 254.45% 61.03% 408.71% 36.50% 2.223 2.822 1.883
6 201.18% 44.01% 235.43% 40.50% 2.251 2.769 1.858
7 110.35% 60.73% 340.88% 40.67% 2.370 2.772 1.862
8 169.14% 54.55% 324.46% 36.50% 2.300 2.816 1.879
9 174.05% 77.24% 445.13% 36.50% 2.118 2.818 1.880
10 111.47% 46.40% 247.92% 25.50% 2.424 2.967 1.945
11 80.35% 74.68% 273.79% 22.08% 2.284 3.038 1.985
12 124.22% 65.60% 308.02% 36.50% 2.358 2.820 1.882
13 250.41% 74.18% 330.48% 52.75% 2.117 2.632 1.796
14 181.93% 79.60% 302.48% 45.00% 2.097 2.723 1.841
15 239.87% 95.43% 467.23% 69.83% 1.850 2.477 1.727
From this we can generate a graph comparing them. This does however get...messy. What we are seeing in this is that the builds which benefit the most from SS, ERL, and RRtW are ones without any stat bonuses. Rather we have an inverse ratio between the 4 major stats that are affected by Specialist firing modes (CrtH, CrtD, Cat2, and Haste) and the overall increase we get from the firing mode. We can make this graph a little better to read by condensing down Cat2, CrtH and CrtD into an equivalent Cat2 term and then we generate this graph here, which I think makes this a much better illustration of this idea.
Basically the more buffs you have, the less impactful the firing modes will be in comparison. We can see here that on the 15th build, Spencers Inquiry from last year, is only seeing about a 85% increase when comparing to normal firing under SS3 because the build is a naturally high CrtH value, so its missing a large chunk of what makes SS really good (that +30% CrtH).

Wrap Up

Well...that was a lot of math. I'm going to stop here because even when writing this I can feel peoples eyes start to glaze over.
Not anything surprising really from this. RRtW3 needs maintained uptime to compete, which comes at the cost of micro level build decisions which are almost impossible to calculate at this scale. When you can maintain that you get a huge damage buff, however at the potential cost of other build decisions. To deep dive into that is why we created TRINITY (found in the STOBetter Tools Section), which at the time of posting just released at version 1.0 along with many other things. If this is the sort of game/build theory you like to dabble in I highly encourage you to look into that spreadsheet and poke around with things.
Overall I think the pilot rework went really well and RRtW is in a very good spot. Its got trade offs but provides a huge amount of damage for those trades. I'm looking forward to using it myself as well as seeing what whacky things people come up with.
Thanks for reading, and if you have any questions or spot any errors please leave a comment!

2023.03.25 17:53 ParticularPristine66 Any judges or attorneys near Kaukauna not corrupt and want to help me!?! I can't give up now!

I'm running out of time and my current case is now tied to my last where my family kept me silenced, now I know why, and has ties to a county that handled the Steven Avery case. My first public defender on my last was Eric Loy. He was originally signed to Steven Avery and he appears on Making a Murder. He was wonderful as well as the judge but again I was kept quiet. The next public defender tanked and I just fired my dean attorney and now I see that same public defender is now in my county and I'm ordered to call there. My dean attorney was working with deputies and da to wreak my case and couldn't answer any questions and I just found out my sister, who tried to kill me when we were younger (lots of mental health issues) and has been the black sheep of the family until now since I'm disowned (definitely huge reason) has been watching ccap and asking about my attorney who was one attorney was on the Matthew Beyer case in Kaukauna just charged with the murder of his two kids and of course my sister is his ex girlfriend. I have much much more. Social worker with felony charges ect... all family. All with proof. This will definitely effect a lot of counties because of a judge. I don't want to share more because I'm honestly scared and won't leave the house. I wouldn't be risking my own heart health this entire time doing constant research but I can't risk a stroke or worse much longer do to high blood pressure and constant anxiety.

2023.03.25 17:53 KGBMutt After 220 investigation rank?

Is there any benefit to having extra conditions? Higher reward money is pretty much pointless, we're all beyond rich. Theres no more research levels to attain.
Really the only thing that seems to matter is the actual investigation level of the quests, in order to qualify for research tokens.
Am I missing something?

2023.03.25 17:53 entidad_desconocida fan servant idea: saint barbara

She was a Christian martyr, recognized as a saint by the Catholic Church.
Santa Barbara is the patron saint of miners and artillerymen.
As for his place of birth around the 3rd century, at least two different birthplaces are indicated.while some affirm that she would have been born in Nicomedia near the Sea of 鈥嬧婱armara (Turkey), others indicate that she was born in Baalbek, also known as Heliopolis in Phoenicia (Lebanon).She was the daughter of a satrap named Dioscorus,who locked her in a castle to prevent her from marrying so young and to avoid Christian proselytism. During his imprisonment he had teachers who taught him poetry and philosophy, among other subjects. For this very reason, and because her father was absent, Barbara converted to Christianity and sent a message to Origen, considered a scholar of the Christian Church, to educate her in this faith.
After being baptized, she had a third window built in her room, thus symbolizing the Holy Trinity. When her father came to see her, she declared herself a Christian and opposed his proposed marriage, saying that she chose Christ as her husband. Then her father got angry and wanted to kill her in honor of their pagan gods. For this reason, Barbara fled and took refuge in a rock, miraculously opened for her, but despite the miracle she was captured.
Her martyrdom was the same as that of Saint Vincent: she was tied to a rack, scourged, torn with iron rakes, placed on a bed of sharp pieces of ceramic, and burned with hot irons. Finally, King Di贸scoro himself sent her to court, where the judge handed down the death sentence by beheading. Her own father was the one who beheaded her on top of a mountain, after which lightning struck him, killing him as well.
The Carmelite father Claudio de San Jos茅 narrates, in a manuscript of the Carmelite Order, that the tomb of Santa B谩rbara was venerated by faithful who reported miraculous healings. His fame was well recognized in the eighth century and some began to take the relics until they were transferred to Constantinople and then to Venice.
Because she is related to explosions, she is the patron saint of artillerymen and miners. Its name of Santa, "santab谩rbara" is used to name the powder magazines and explosives stores, particularly on ships and she is considered protective against storm damage, lightning and sparks.

2023.03.25 17:53 WreckageHothHead Evaluating RLM's SW commentary, thread 1: logic of Deathstar interior, Bespin hell levels and "Theed power room"

In the context of evaluating critiques and video essays on movies, in general but in particular prominent ones on controversial productions, I thought what better place to start than Redlettermedia's SW commentary - examining one topic at a time probably, since that makes for a long enough post as it is.
Not sure how far I'll end up going, but here's "part one" I suppose:
Plinkett audio commentary: SW Ep4
But really, a space station the size of a small moon? And they just happened to get pulled into the exact hangar bay which is located right near all the things that they need to get to.
But they do get back to the Millennium Falcon on foot, right? Like right after when they rescue Princess Leia and get all showered up; so the prisoner room and the garbage dump that's like one floor below it - is like right near where the hangar bay is?
Same with all 7 power reactor control things that shut off power to the main tractor beam...
Why is this Death Star so big again?
Oh right, the giant space laser. Ah, whatever...
The Death Star is silly and nonsensical; each set is designed for the purpose of the movie's needs:
The prisoner cell block only has one way out; which is great by the way, in case a crazed prisoner escapes and corners a guard?
There are giant steel doors everywhere, that close to block off hallways - utterly pointless, except it's neat to have Han and Chewie jump through a door as it's closing while they're being chased by Stormtroopers.
"Open the blast doors! Open the blast doors!"
I guess they're blast doors...
What are they blasting against? [...]
I guess they're like watertight bulkhead doors? - like on the Titanic? You know, in case the Death Star hits an iceberg.
And then you got the extendable and retractable bridge over the cavernous pit; this serves no purpose? - unless we want a scene where Luke has to swing across the pit heroically with Leia.
And don't even get me started on the fact that there are no railings anywhere on any of the [?] walkways, that go above endless pits to nowhere...
It's all very stark, and abstract, and science-fictiony stuff.
I guess the Empire's so confident in its efficiency, that it doesn't need shit like safety railings - they've been accident free for over three years now!
Now you might be saying to yourself, well, I did complain about the Theed power room, right?
But I never really complained about the look of the Theed power room - or the fact that they didn't have no railings either!
And they have these silly rotating force field doors, that led to a little room with a pit in it for no reason...
It was like that little Keymaker guy from the Matrix sequels showed up - and he opened up the door to a completely different fucking world.
I guess George wanted them to have a fight scene on a Star Wars looking set, or something that looked like the Death Star kind of environment? - but he couldn't get them onto one storywise, so he just said that there would be one underneath this old quaint city.
You see we need some kind of connection to reality?, and as absurd as a planet-sized space station with a giant laser is - it's still much more believable than the fact that Naboo has a gigantic power generator under its city;
accessible through doors in some kind of hangar bay for some reason.
And it's like underneath the main palace? And not like a 100 miles away in the middle of nowhere.
It's like having a nuclear powerplant under the White House - not necessarily the greatest idea....
If I owned a nuclear powerplant, I'd probably go and touch the Uranium rods. I'd rub my face against them.. in hopes that I would get superpowers and be able to shoot laser out of my eyes... But I'd probably just get horrible cancer.
You know, I got something to admit - I got cancer once? But I was cured of it... Because you see, once the cancer cells saw what I did in my basement at night? - they all killed themselves. They said they didn't wanna bring their children into a world such as mine.
This of course being an expanded version of a point that touched briefs in the Ep1 review:
Plinkett: SW Ep1
Oh, and then they go from the palace to this room, what is this room? Is this in the palace??
I mean I know George wanted the Jedis to fight in a cool place that's really Star Warsy? - so.. so what this is like a power generator? What does it power, the Universe??
So you're expecting me to believe that the people that built this technological wonder were dying without space supplies for 2 days??
One additional plot hole I seem to have found here (at least haven't seen anyone else mention it) is that at the beginning of Ep1, the hangar with the ships quite certainly was not in the palace (the Queen's group looked like it had walked quite a distance away from the palace before the 2 Jedi freed them - and then Panaka's like "the hangar, this way" and next second they're at the hangar; no way they made the whole trip back to the palace during that cut?) - however at the end, they enter the palace via the hangar.
Either way this aside, while the comparison in that commentary section is accurate, the big problem here is that a much closer and more natural comparison to what happens here with the Theed hangar->"powerplant", is not the Death Star here, but rather the Bespin duel - and Plinkett doesn't make that obvious comparison anywhere.
As an environment, Bespin is a direct predecessor to mainly Coruscant (i.e. the exterior) as well as to a lesser extent the Naboo capital - its interior doesn't directly look like the Palace (if anything that one's much more comparable to the Yavin throne room), however it's an exotic, idyllic and embellished, arguably "aristocratic" looking environment built right next to the hellish looking carbon freezing chamber, a junkyard featuring a conveyor belt leading into an inferno, and probably other industrial areas;
this in itself is not yet "unjustified" in any way - Cloud City is a "gas mining colony" after all, and as James Cameron is well aware, smoke-filled metallic industrial environments already have an inherent tendency to look like Hell on Earth and serve as a perfect setting for climactic showdowns against creepy villains and monsters.
However Han's group never visits Lando's moody looking industrial facilities before being taken there by Vader - so from their perspective, and the way it's conveyed in the movie (starting even with the room Threepio initially enters), these industrial and engine rooms represent the "evil underbelly" of Cloud City, hidden beneath and inbetween the picturesque city and the soothing bright hallways that serve as a "front" for this hidden truth;
even the gnome-like aliens first found by Chewie in that junkyard, and later seen participating in in the carbon freezing procedure, while literally just being industrial workers there, come off as malicious, almost demon-like creatures who're seemingly exclusively found in these grim underbelly rooms.
Then, even though it's reasonable to expect a city with a police force to feature prisons and detention centers, the one that Chewbacca gets locked in has an emphatically grim and evil look to it - a complete contrast to the public areas.
That's not what the Enterprise's detention cells look like?
Moments later, Han is strapped into a torture contraption, in a similar room with a dark red ceiling - one might assume the Empire brought the torture equipment with them, but really this place increasingly starts looking like an evil Imperial fortress rather than a benign, idyllic city built around some factories.
And if the initial scenes inside the freezing chamber didn't outright confirm that this place exists right "next" to the bright hallways, then certainly that's exactly how it turns out to be when Luke arrives and is lured into this trap - one moment he's in the white hallway, the next he enters a door and is pulled into the hell room with Vader.
Plinkett's "Keymaker from the Matrix" comparison becomes more and more applicable here - even though the believability isn't stretched as much yet, since why shouldn't there be quick and easy access to the industrial/engine rooms from the public hallways?
And the Empire just happens to be using this room, since Vader wants to use this otherwise normal industrial facility to freeze Luke so he doesn't try to escape during the trip to the Emperor... or something.
However as Luke starts following after Vader after pushing him off the platform, and walks through a creepy tunnel into what seems like a level of control rooms connected by darkly lit hallways, the place becomes hard to distinguish from some of the interiors of the Death Star - especially the Emperor's throne room from the 2nd one;
and then Luke is blown out a window that looks like a spider web (not quite unlike the one seen behind the Emperor's throne in the next film), into a vast, round bottomless pit with walls that look like the surface of the Death Star.
Sure - if that long shaft emerging from underneath the city and reaching down into the clouds (possibly connected to the "gas mining" somehow) were to be hollow inside, then it would look like a gaping bottomless pit - but why does its wall have to look like the Death Star's surface? And also evoke the bottomless pit that was surrounding the tractor beam controls for some reason?
So at this point, Luke and Vader have gotten from a smoky industrial facility that you would expect from an industrial city like this, to what looks indistinguishable from the interior of an evil Imperial station or fortress - even though these interiors have been here for years, way before the Empire arrived here a few days ago, and effectively made it into its temporary evil space station fortress;
they hardly could've revamped the design of all these rooms and chasms during the short time they've been staying here, to make them look like an Imperial base instead?
Really by all looks, these levels beneath the carbon freezing facility, as well as those "prison rooms" from before, look like this for no other reason than that the Bespin city functions as a honey-trap Imperial fortress in this film;
and as the duel starts protruding into the increasingly Deathstarish looking environment, it seems like dream logic starts completely taking over any pretenses the environment initially had of "making sense in-universe":
each set is designed for the purpose of the movie's needs:
What's happening on a small and not even anywhere as immediately noticeable scale in Ep4's Deathstar, is taking place on a much larger scale here - the environments are designed according to the needs of the film, as well as to reflect the meaning of what's happening in the story as well as the protagonist's mental state:
the "control room level" looks like an Imperial fortress because it's functioning as one here, and exists as a representation of the dark place (morally and mentally) Vader is trying to lure him into; and the claustrophobic hallways, spider window and gaping chasm reflect and intensify Luke's bleak states of mind during those respective moments - the unfamiliarity of the environment reflects the hidden knowledge that he's about to discover, the hallways and thin bridge intensify his "trapped in a deadly situation" situation, and hovering above a gaping pit into nothingness is seemingly how he feels about having learned what he just learned: that his entire aspiration to go after his father, and what his trusted mentors had been telling him, were all lies, and he seemingly has way to escape the "dark abyss" that Vader is trying to pull him in (ironically the literal dark abyss is what he jumps into to escape it - having changed into representing the preferable nature of death/uncertainty to what Vader is offering him).
So how does this all compare to the Ep1 counterpart?
You see we need some kind of connection to reality?, and as absurd as a planet-sized space station with a giant laser is - it's still much more believable than the fact that Naboo has a gigantic power generator under its city;
accessible through doors in some kind of hangar bay for some reason.
And it's like underneath the main palace? And not like a 100 miles away in the middle of nowhere.
It's like having a nuclear powerplant under the White House - not necessarily the greatest idea....
To get this one thing right out of the way out of the bat, there is no indication of those power beams or anything else in this place somehow being hazardous like the fissile radiant material in nuclear powerplants - so at least there's that.
However the believability is certainly stretched a lot farther here than anything in Bespin - for one, Theed is not a relatively small city built around an industrial function, it's just a regular royal capital; so unless the Naboo culture has some kind of "the kings are also the producers of goods" thing going on, this "power plant" being right in the palace building seems like a non-sequitur;
being next to the fighter jet hangar might make a slight bit more sense, but still not really at all - plus the hangar's in the palace now, unlike the start of the film.
Another big difference here is that the "powerplant" area is not just extending downwards into bottomless chasms, but also upwards towards the unseen ceiling - and one might ask oneself whether the buildings seen from outside were really high enough to contain that massive area, although the Palace (despite not being a skyscraper) just might.
And also while there's nothing inherently absurd about underground levels, or a round bottomless pit leading underground, the latter hadn't been set up by an exterior shot of the station, with the "bottomless pit" axis growing out of the flying saucer's lower half and reaching into the clouds/gas below (in what had been established as a "gas mining facility") - this time all that stuff is literally coming out of nowhere.
However ultimately what really doesn't make sense, analogously to the Bespin "control rooms levels" beneath the freezing chamber, is it looking like an evil Imperial fortress - Naboo isn't an evil fortress, so why would it have an evil looking interior like this?
However, a major difference here is that while the Empire had only occupied Bespin for a short while, was intent on leaving again (unless Lando refused to cooperate, that is), the Trade Federation has been here for quite a while longer - certainly in "film time" terms it takes up the length of the entire movie, even if the in-universe time that passes between the invasion and the return to Naboo might be ranging between a significantly long period to a few days) - and by all looks they were planning to stay and had some kind of huge sprawling plans in mind that involved the entire planet:
"Is the planet secure?"
"We have taken over the last pockets of primitive life forms - we are in complete control of the planet now."
"Good."
And in this movie, the Trade Federation is a proto-Empire of sorts - not only collaborating with the Sith and led by the literal future Emperor, they also seem to be a dystopian megacorporation of sorts, who've already (unofficially?) taken over significant Republic territory:
"You can't take Her Royal Highness there, the Hutts are gangsters! If they discovered her-"
"...It'd be no different than if we landed on a system controlled by the Federation; except that the Hutts aren't looking for her - which gives us the advantage."
"Your Highness - with your permission, we're heading for a remote planet called Tatooine; it's in a system far beyond the reach of the Trade Federation."
Their ships literally look like mini Death Stars (with Saturn rings around them, to make it slightly less obvious?), and their interior generally looks very Empirey as well.
So, compared to the idea that one might easily think of to try and ground the Bespin look in the universe, namely that "the Empire has started changing this place they're occupying into their evil fortress", such a notion certainly makes a lot more sense in the context of Ep1's plot.
Additionally this is somewhat supported by the visuals of Gunray riding around on a crab-throne while in a darkly lit looking Palace interior at night - even if only in this scene here:
"Your Queen is lost, your people are starving... and you, Governor, are going to die much sooner than your people, I'm afraid."
"This invasion will gain you nothing! We're a democracy - the people have decided!"
"Take him away."
"My troops are in position to begin searching the swamps for these rumoured underwater villages. They will not stay hidden for long."
This also conveys some kind of notion of "them remaking the place into their own", even if technically it's just a creepy looking robot chair and this scene (along with the later Sidious scene where they tell him they've taken over those primitive lifeforms) happens to take place at night.
Ultimately though, even if making more sense than Bespin by comparison, it's still a heavy stretch on rational world believability - and, of course, there's no direct hints at this actually having physically taken place there.
Similarly to ESB, this duel starts with the villain getting in the heroes' way as they're there for a different mission (having waited for them from behind a closed door as well), and at least partially showing signs of following a plan to lure them into increasingly dangerous environments:
Maul arbitrarily opens the gate to the space room and leads the fight there - then he backflips onto a bridge even further away from the hangar, and is subsequently seen stepping back from Qui-Gon all up until ending up in that corridor with the red force fields, and eventually the sealed room with the gaping pit:
where he immediately reveals to have been pretending to be retreating from Qui-Gon and turns around at him the moment the force fields reactivate again.
So, just like with Bespin, there's a surreal, dream logic element here that extends and reflects the literal premise of the villain luring the heroes into a trap - the environments he's leading them into look like an evil fortress, evoke power, awe and danger, and feature both claustrophobic small rooms/corridors to make the protagonists feel trapped, as well as gaping pits and chasms showing just how deep they can fall into uncertainty and death, in what's getting brewed up by the villains here;
and analogously to Luke in Cloud City, while the 2 Jedi aren't literally "surprised" by this environment hiding behind the door of a benign looking palace (which can be attributed to it either making sense to them in terms of how real-world logic, or their reduced lucidity), it's a place they haven't been showing seeing at any earlier point, and reflects the much vaster scope of what's going on here (i.e. the Sith plan to take over the world) that's hidden from them, is shrouded by secret, and that they're only going to proceed to uncover gradually.
"There is something else behind all this, your Highness - there's no logic in the Federation's move here. My feelings tell me they will destroy you."
Unlike ESB this isn't something that they learn the full truth of in an instant, without any direct hints preceding it - with the possible exception of this:
"I cannot teach him; the boy has no patience."
"He will learn patience."
"Much anger in him - like his father."
"Was I any different when you taught me?"
Effectively, or if explicitly going with a "dream logic" reading of these movies, according to which places, characters, circumstances and hidden schemes pop into the universe's existence the moment they're imagined by the author / enter the narrative, both these environments materialize inside these buildings out of nowhere to reflect and enhance the mental states of the protagonists, the villainous intents and schemes, and the meaning of what's happening in the story;
just like, albeit on a much smaller scale, all those Death Star parts only materialized in front of the heroes in order to give them new dangers and obstacles to overcome - incl. the garbage chute beneath a latticed hole right in the prison corridor, the monster that made itself known right as someone said "could be worse", and the walls that started closing in on them right after the monster disappears.
Then she shoots a vent on the floor and somehow knows that it's a garbage chute... HOW'D SHE KNOW THAT?
And why would a garbage chute be grated like that? Usually that's just like a air vent or somethin'...
It could've led to a dead end, where they all got stuck somewhere...
Or it coulda let straight to a garbage incinerator - nobody knows what that is? So their idea is to jump in it?..
I guess it's better than nothing? I guess you're fucked one way or the other...
But shit I wouldn't follow her in there, I'd surrender...
However, exclusively comparing these ANH examples to the Theed spaceroom without mentioning the much more similar Bespin spaceroom, amounts to a very incomplete comparison - and the accompanying conclusion that:
You see we need some kind of connection to reality?, and as absurd as a planet-sized space station with a giant laser is - it's still much more believable than the fact that Naboo has a gigantic power generator under its city;
and that this warrants "complaining" about:
Now you might be saying to yourself, well, I did complain about the Theed power room, right?
But I never really complained about the look of the Theed power room - or the fact that they didn't have no railings either!
leads to the question whether Plinkett/Mike/Rich/etc. are aware of Empire engaging in a very similar (in fact directly analogous) and comparable display of environment surrealism, with "the Keymaker opening a portal into an evil dimension", and stretching this "connection to reality" a whole lot further and more noticeably than those Death Star scenes (with the garbage chute itself standing out among them all, in turn);
This trash compactor scene is really a lot of fun;
but it always felt like a "give them something to do" kind of scene, in a movie where nearly every scene is motivated.
It's one of those "lowest point" kinda moments, where our heroes struggle against opposition - but it doesn't really serve an overall purpose in the storyline.
It's fun, and tense, and memorable, don't get me wrong - but from a story perspective it doesn't advance the plot too much...
The plot here being that the bad guys wanna blow up the Rebel base - and Han; Luke; Chewbacca; and the useless complaining woman need to stop them.
Having them tied up in the garbage compactor only to escape and go right back to where they were? - eh, it was a little unnecessary roadblock in this series of events.
; and how exactly this fits in with their high appraisal of that movie:
Plinkett: The Star Wars Awakens
He accomplished his task of creating a sci-fi film about the Hero鈥檚 Journey; and then had to live under the shadow of 鈥淭he Empire Strikes Back鈥 鈥 one of the greatest films ever made for which he had the least to do with creatively;
he desperately needed Star Wars to be about something bigger and greater than just popcorn entertainment - so he went back to his classic literature book and his CliffsNotes to search for ideas.
Plinkett audio commentary: SW Ep1
So at this point as we're wrapping up, you're saying to yourself: "Why does this guy get so worked up over Star Wars - these are films for babies! They're just made for 5 year olds that like to play with toys."
Well - I don't find that entirely true; and I don't think that's all this could've been.
This is more about achieving greatness; and those that make excuses for greatness when it falls horribly short.
In "Empire Strikes Back", the filmmakers took the material from the 1st Star Wars, and brought it up to the next level.
They took a movie with robots, and a floating cloud city, and a rubber green puppet, and made it completely realistic and believable;
This ANH-ESB comparison and how the latter "took it to the next level" including on the "realism" front, seems to ignore how much it turned up the gears on the surrealism and dream logic when compared to those Death Star scenes - particularly in that very same "floating cloud city" mentioned in this quote.
it's a very dark movie that's brilliantly done in every aspect - filled with heavy emotion, stark realism, and beautiful visuals.
For a brief moment, "The Empire Strikes Back" showed us what could really be done with these movies and characters.
I think people have a hard time differentiating between movies that are made for children, - and movies that children can also enjoy.
If you're any age, "Empire" can speak to you on some level; "The Phantom Menace" caps out at about age 10 - unless you're a drooling fanboy that just loves lightsabers.
And saying that "The Phantom Menace" is really "just a film for children" - is code speak for it sucking.
Even if a reasonable comparison between these analogous sections of ESB and TPM would lead to the conclusion that the former is surrealist art kino while the latter is nonsense that disconnects you from reality; that the former is "one of the greatest films ever made" while the latter "sucks" (incl. at the example of this particular comparison) - they haven't yet made such a comparison or analysis, it's missing from their thesis;
and judging by them praising ESB and its floating cloud city as "starkly realistic", as well as leaving all of this out of their Death Star / Theed comparison, strongly suggests that they haven't ever thought of any these points, and are severely overestimating the amount of rational sense-making that EpV is built on.
For similar themes discussed by RLM, check out their Suspiria re:view (crazy dream logic inside the dance school),
as well the somewhat mixed commentary on the evil look of the Event Horizon (also re:view) and how there doesn't seem to be an in-universe justification for its gothic design prior to it falling into the hell dimension - since Sam Neill's character isn't some kinda "hell worshipper cultist" who would construct it in that fashion.
In that sense, the ship's look only reflects its role in the movie, and its nature after reemerging from the hell dimension, but since having been there didn't change its design, the issue is that it "makes no sense" for it to have been designed in this way;
however a very similar thing can be applied to the environments EpV climax, as explained above.

2023.03.25 17:52 anabolic_coach Q&A #70...What is Psychedelic Medicine?

Q&A #70...What is Psychedelic Medicine?
Q: Hey Coach how's it going brother? I have to say that your articles are really amazing. I don't know what it is to be honest, but you seem super cool.
I would love to have you as my Coach. I have had a couple in the past but to be honest they were nothing like you. I read your "How to Find a Good Coach" article that is pinned at the top of your page and they didn't fulfill all the requirements that you included that is for sure.
I am going to DM you to ask more questions about your coaching services as well as finding that proper 鈥淐onnection鈥 to take my physique to the next level.
I also really like all your health and longevity info you are putting out as well. Your medical cannabis info is stellar too.
So sorry for blabbing on so much so here is a question for you that I think you could answer. What is your take on psychedelic medicine's future in Canada. I am not talking about using these substances like magic mushrooms and others for recreational or party purposes. I am talking about legitimate medical purposes to help those suffering from different serious conditions?
I would love to hear your thoughts.
Thanks Coach
The Future of Medicine is Here!
A: Hey man its nice to hear from you. Thank you for all the kind words bro. I am happy you appreciate all the hard work I put into these articles. Yes when it comes to your question on psychedelic medicine in this country, I do believe there is a very bright future in the next decade in this regards. There is so many people in this country that could truly benefit from it and I believe that within a short period of time it will be legalized for medical use just the same way cannabis was.
Medical Cannabis Once Frowned Upon is Now the Norm!
As a sports nutritionist that is fascinated with holistic medicine and longevity, I knew sooner or later I would end up here in my quest. With my study of nutrition, natural supplements, herbs, and medical cannabis, I always pull towards alternative therapies and how they can be used to optimize performance and health. Working with numerous world-class athletes for a wide variety of sports, I am always looking far and beyond what others do to take my clients to the next level. By that, I am not always thinking about that all-time world record, or being selected for the next Olympic games. I am talking about elevating performance, health, longevity, and the well-being of my clientele on every level.
Maybe Your Hippie Grandparents were Right!
Maybe the Hippies were Right All Along?
If I said the words psychedelic medicine to you even just twenty years ago you would have looked at me like I was some type of weirdo hippie that drank one too many green smoothies. But today in the year 2021, this is becoming a stark reality. The use of psychedelic drugs, yea the ones that made the 60鈥檚 so awesome are now being not only researched but applied in medical settings to help heal many different conditions. I guess the baby boomers, the flower children of the Vietnam war era saw the writing on the wall a half-century ago, but many were too arrogant to see it.
Magic Mushrooms for the Win!
Magic Mushrooms as Medicine is Nothing New!
The use of magic mushrooms or what is known as Psilocybe Cubensis dates back thousands of years. Just like medical cannabis that has been documented over 6,000 years ago for being used to treat medical conditions, magic mushrooms also have their own history. It is believed fungi can be dated to over a billion years ago when paleobiologists discovered it on fossils. Some experts like Terrance Mckenna believe that magic mushrooms were used all the way back to 10,000 BC for both healing and spiritual benefits.
John Lennon and Maria Sabina
The Mother of Medicinal Mushrooms
One person stands out when it comes to the healing properties of magic mushrooms and their introduction to Western civilization. That woman would be none other than Maria Sabina. She is considered the pioneer that introduced magic mushrooms to the western world for healing purposes. This all started when she was introduced to Robert Wasson way back in 1955. Maria was a Mazatec shaman living in southern Mexico. Born in 1894, Maria was introduced to the magic of these fungi at an early age.
She came from a family of shamans so studying and being inquisitive about the wide variety of healing plants came naturally growing up surrounded by these daily practices. As she got older her relation to magic mushrooms became devout and her healing ceremonies as they were known were gaining popularity. She began working with people all over the country and her fame was praised in many circles. Her healing ceremonies were known as 鈥淰eladas鈥 and it was through this, her legacy was born.
Robert Wasson and Maria Creating History!
The Discovery of Magic Mushrooms in America
Robert was the first white man to have ever to have been invited to one of her Valeadas. The fact that he was being included in the ceremony out of his curiosity rather than a specific health condition seemed odd to those native Mexicans involved. He took a piece of the magic mushroom from that ceremony and shipped it to a scientist back in America.
From the analysis that was conducted, the psychoactive compound known as psilocybin was now discovered. But even beyond that was his article in Life Magazine where he detailed all his experiences with Maria. This took her fame to unseen heights as people from all over the world knew of her abilities and practices thus seeking her out for a myriad of health conditions. It wasn鈥檛 just everyday folk wanting to utilize her services as famous people like Walt Disney, John Lennon, and numerous other well-known personalities made their journey to see her.
Life Magazine Article that Opened the Eyes of Many in the West!
Medical Studies Proving Magic Mushrooms are Medicine
The future looks very bright for the use of magic mushrooms for treating many conditions. In the late 鈥90s, the first study was conducted making history. Since then numerous other faculties of medicine have followed suit including the famous John Hopkins University in America and the University of Toronto in Canada.
When these medical studies are being performed it is opening not only the eyes of the researchers that can verify their effectiveness for different conditions but also of the politicians. Let鈥檚 not forget citizens that want to have a say in what they can legally put in their bodies to improve their health as well. Many states in America are pushing the legalization of magic mushrooms for medical purposes much the way medical cannabis was and continues to this day to fight the stigma associated with it.
John Hopkins University a Decade Ago Researching Psilocybin as Medicine
Medical Cannabis Activists in Canada
As a Canadian, I have seen over the years the push by medical cannabis activists fighting to have their rights restored. The push to allow those in need of cannabis as medicine to help treat their different health conditions. In time though these acts of civil disobedience, protests, rallies, and fighting in the legal system have given Canadians the right to not only medical but recreational cannabis use throughout the country.
Sandra and Remo Colasanti Fighting for Medical Cannabis!
Activists that stood their ground and fought for change helped bring us to both medical and recreational cannabis laws that we as Canadians enjoy. These selfless activists like Dana Larsen, Remo and Sandra Colasanti, Mark and Jody Emery, Ian Hunter, Lyn Harichy, Rick Simpson, Grant Krieger among many more, were critical in making these dreams a reality. If these people didn鈥檛 work, sacrifice, and push the envelope to move the dial in the right direction we would not be where we are today. Not to be forgotten is all that they have done will then trickle around the world in years to come.
Mark and Jody Emery Pushing the Envelope for Cannabis Legalization!
History Made Once Again
Less than a year ago, history was once again made in Canada in the pursuit of alternative medical treatments. Thomas Hartle is the very first person in Canada to 鈥淟egally鈥 consume psilocybin to treat his medical condition under the guidance of Dr. Bruce Tobin. Thomas was suffering from crippling anxiety attacks since he was diagnosed with terminal cancer years prior. After even his first dose, the anxiety dissipated, and had the best sleep in several years.
Dr. Bruce and Thomas Leading the Future of Psychedelic Medicine
He believes Canadians should keep all options on the table and consider psilocybin therapy as medical treatment. Dr. Tobin created a nonprofit organization called TheraPsil consisting of medical researchers, doctors, as well as those involved in politics to help further this cause.
Medical Psilocybin Research Continues
To make things even better just a few short months after this historic event Health Canada and the Minister of Health granted 16 exemptions to a group of doctors, therapists, and social workers to possess and use psilocybin to help study and implement it in a medical setting without the worry of prosecution under Canada鈥檚 drug laws. The reason for this is that these medical professionals should be able to understand what psilocybin does and how it works in the body before monitoring patients that may be able to use it for end-of-life treatments.
Experts Agree Psilocybin is Beneficial for Numerous Mental Conditions!
As one author commented, 鈥淲ould you take advice from a Sex Therapist that never had sex?鈥 This only makes sense that those giving medical advice have experienced the effects themselves. Slowly but surely you will see more and more cases in the media as well as medical studies highlighting all the different health conditions that can be successfully treated with psychedelic medicine. Many experts agree that even a single dose of psilocybin can be more beneficial than years of medication or psychotherapy.
The Magic Mushroom that is Changing Medicine as We Know It
The Future of Psilocybin as Medicine
Today magic mushrooms and other psychedelic drugs that were once frowned upon in years past as the scourge of hippie degenerates has come full circle. Once thought of as drugs that would rot your brain and ruin your life have become a miracle for many helping them ultimately improve the quality of their mental health.
Their benefits for those suffering from depression, anxiety attacks, PTSD, and more are just the tip of the iceberg for what science will show in the near future. Magic mushrooms are in the same place medical cannabis was twenty-plus years ago. Hopefully, the bureaucratic red tape that took place during these decades with medical cannabis will no longer be an issue so patients looking to psilocybin among other psychedelic drugs can take advantage of all they offer especially for those at the end of life treatments. Psychedelics are without a doubt the future of medicine!
The Future Looks Bright!

I鈥檓 5 foot, about 85 pounds/38 kilograms. No I don鈥檛 have an eating disorder, my GP says I鈥檓 fine and I鈥檓 happy and healthy, just small lol. I鈥檓 blonde, have long hair and I鈥檓 in good shape. I have some curves, I鈥檓 not flat but I wouldn鈥檛 define myself as thick or anything. Also have three tattoos.
Relationship wise I prefer a more traditional type. Where the man takes lead, works, makes the big decisions etc and I鈥檇 stay home, do housework, look after the kids etc. Ideally I want to have 2-3 children.
Sexually I鈥檓 submissive, I don鈥檛 want to get into kinks and stuff publicly as I think it鈥檚 a bit strange but yeah, I鈥檓 not very flexible on that, I don鈥檛 like taking the lead in that department so I hope you can!

2023.03.25 17:52 descisionsdecisions Late Review Embargo Sucks

Does anybody else feel like having such a late review embargo from sonos would make them less likely to preorder in the future? I mean I understand the idea of pre-ordering but at least with the sub mini I was able to preorder and then see reviews before my order shipped. I find it kind of ridiculous that sonos would go to having the review embargo come after customers are actually receiving the product. Ultimately it doesn't matter with the 45 day return policy, but for some reason to me it feels disingenuous. Just curious what everyone else's thoughts were.

2023.03.25 17:51 VENAK121 How bad is it?

I鈥檓 in senior year of hs. So I grew up with a strict and harsh mom who often abused me. For example, she would force me to prepare for the next school year in the summer and I pretty much only got 1 hour a day to do literally anything fun at all. One time during the summer after second grade I refused to do my work seeing as all the other kids were able to enjoy their summer pretty much without any limits or studying as long as they didn鈥檛 get hurt. She then proceeded to starve me for the next 3 days after I started working again after day one of no food. She would also frequently beat me for not doing good enough by her standards in school. As I got older the pettier her reasons and the bigger her punishments became, I think the worst one was being put in the garage for all 2 weeks of winter break with no food, and I was unable to fall asleep in the garage and it was close to freezing. I had just a long sleeve shirt and pants on, and I used the socks that were in the garage to have my feet hold out. I resorted to strategically drinking water and timing bathroom breaks in order to ensure I didn鈥檛 lose anything other than my sanity. She also has me do the stupidest things for her, for example, I will be in another room or across the room and she will ask for something that is on the table right in front of her. She also seemed to hate seeing me have fun because she always found or made something for me to do that wasn鈥檛 even the least bit fun, so I had to make sure I was out of her sight and had some kind of fake work ready if I ever wanted to enjoy myself in peace. As of this year I finally started making female friends (I have no idea what the best way to specify that it is a girl without making it sound weird) and just for the hell of it they asked me if I was interested in any women, and I said yes. When they asked what I was planning on doing, I said that I was going to stay single my whole life because they way I saw it was that a woman can only make your life miserable and restricted, it would simply be an unnecessarily extreme mental, financial, and potentially physical burden that I didn鈥檛 plan to ever experience again once I left home. They got really mad at me and said I was a misogynistic pig. They didn鈥檛 have the context, only those words at the end. Am I a misogynist for believing that women are malicious people who can only bring you pain and suffering? And that the only reason the interact with them or make friends is to learn how to work together with them for the sake of my career?

THERE'S CHAOS EVERYWHERE
GRAND THEFT AUTO ONLINE OUTSIDE
WHY? WHY? ASK OUR GOVERNMENT
YOUR GOVEY IS SO SNEAKY
YOU BELIEVE EVERY SINGLE THING THEY SAY
LIKE A 'COON
RACOON
THE BURGLAR OF THE ANIMAL KINGDOM
DRESSED FOR THE JOB HE WANTS RIGHT?
IF MICHAEL CORLEONE WAS LEGITIMATE ALL ALONG
HOW WOULD IT LOOK?
THE NERD FATHER
NERD FELLAS
THE ECONOMIC LADDER SHOULD AT LEAST BE VISIBLE
IF YOU EVER WANTED TO CLIMB THE ECONOMIC LADDER
HERE
THE STREET FELLAS DON'T NECESSARILY PICK THIS UP IN THE STREETS
IF YOU KNEW HOW TO GET OUT WHY WOULD YOU STAY IN?
THIS IS NOT A GUIDE BOOK
THIS IS AN EXPERIENCE
MY EXPERIENCE
2:09PM EST
































THE NERDS IN THE HOOD
THEY DON'T PLAY...THEY STUDY
THEY STUDIED WHATEVER WAS ON THEIR HEARTS
THEY FOLLOWED THEIR DESTINY
THEY NEVER ROLLED
YOU SEE THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT SETS TRAPS
THEY SET TRAPS
TRAPS ALL OVER THE PLACE RIGHT?
TRAPS EVERY WHERE YOU GO
PRETTY TRAPS TOO
THE TYPES YOU PICK THEM UP OH LOOK AT THE PRETTY FLOWER
KAPISH KABOOM GOODBYE FORGET ABOUT IT
FORGET ABOUT IT?
PAULIE THESE GUYS PICK IT UP IN THE STREETS
THEY SEE IT EVERYDAY
IT'S IMPRINTED
NOT TO MENTION GANGSTER RAP
NOT TO MENTION GANGSTER RAP
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN 1970'S - 1980'S HIP HOP AND 1990'S GANGSTER RAP?
FIGURE IT OUT YOU FIGURE OUT THE STREETS
SMILES AND CRIES
NO ONE TELLS THE GANGBANGER
HEY...IT'S THE NERDS WHO MAKE IT OUT OF HERE ALIVE AND FREE
BE A NERD
BE A NERD?
YOU THINK THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT DOESN'T FEAR THE NERDS?
NO...THEY FEAR YOU
YOU WITH THE GUN
AND THE RAP SHEET
OR THE PROFILE
WITH YOUR PRETTY PICTURE ON A DRY ERASE BOARD
NO A POSTER BOARD
WITH ALL OF YOUR HEY HOW'D YOU KNOW THAT?
HOW'D THEY KNOW THAT?
FRANKIE THE FEDS HAVE PARABOLIC MICS!
EVER HEARD A SNAKE FART IN ETHIOPIA?
FEDS HAVE
INFORMATION BRINGS INFORMATION
VIOLENCE BRINGS VIOLENCE
YOU START THAT AND WHAT YOU GOT?
YOU GOT A WAR
FEELINGS? THERE'S NO FEELINGS FOR THIS COUNTRY
ANARCHY?
YOU GOT ANARCHY?
THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT THEY DESTROYED THE DESCENDANTS
THE DESCENDANTS FROM AFRICA
AFRIKA
HOWEVER YOU DO SPELL IT
THE JAIL SYSTEMS WORKED WITH THE MUSIC INDUSTRY
NEGATIVE MUSIC FREQUENCY AS IN LOWEST FREQUENCY
NO 432 OR 528
THE LYRICS WERE NEGATIVE
SUBCONSCIOUS PROGRAMMING OF SOCIAL STUPIDITY
GROUP FOOLISHNESS THEORY
THERE'S NO THEORY
YOU FELL FOR IT?
CAUSE YOU FELL FOR IT
THE HOOD IS WHERE THEY WANT US
SCREW THEM
YOU CAN MAKE IT OUT
YOU MIGHT NOT
IT'S YOUR DESTINY EITHER WAY BC THE DESTINY IS YOURS
YOUR DESTINY DOESN'T CHANGE BUT ATTAINING DESTINY CHANGES THE FATE WITH NOT ATTAINING
FATE IS JUST YOUR LAST SITUATION
THIS SITUATION WILL DIFFER IN EACH SCENARIO
THERE ARE TWO SCENARIOS
YOU ACHIEVE YOUR DESTINY OR YOU DO NOT
EVERY CIRCUMSTANCE OTHER THAN PURSUING DESTINY IS A DISTRACTION
A DISTRACTION FROM MANIFESTING THE DESTINY GOD CHOSE FOR YOUR SOUL
TREASON
LIES AND OUTRAGE
MAY SOMEONE SHOW YOU MERCY WHERE YOU END
FAST MONEY AND FAST BOOTY IS THE QUICKEST WAY TO GET THE SILLIES OUT OF HERE
THERE'S A PLAYBOOK AND A RULE BOOK
IF YOU FOLLOW THE RULES AND RUN THE PLAYS
YOU'RE A CHAMPION
IF YOU DON'T THEN IT'S CHALLENGING
KOBE BRYANT WAS A NERD
THEY COULDN'T LET A NERD LIKE THAT GET AN OSCAR
PAULIE HE GOT AN OSCAR
FOR A SHORT ANIMATED
HE WOULD HAVE GOTTEN SIX
HE WAS ON WALL STREET
CHADWICK BOSEMAN WAS A HISTORICAL FIGURE
AFTER PORTRAYING HISTORICAL FIGURES HIS ENTIRE CAREER
BLACK PEOPLE WILL GET ALONG BETTER IF WE STOP TALKING TO EACH OTHER LIKE BLACK PEOPLE
AFRICAN AMERICAN DIALECT OF AMERICAN ENGLISH
SPEAK AMERICAN ENGLISH LIKE THE GOD FATHER
LIKE JOSEPH A. GOTTI
IT'S NOT YOU THE FEDS ARE AFRAID OF
IT'S ME
IT'S US
THE NERD GANG
THEY DON'T WANT YOU TO THINK LIKE ME
I THINK SCARIER TO THE FEDS THAN THE RICHEST DRUG DEALER IN THE WORLD
ALL BC I'M LEGIT AND THEY CAN'T RUN MY RECORD
EVEN IF I HAVE A RECORD
IT WILL MAKE THEM SAD
I'M THE THREAT TO THE AMERICAN ESTABLISHMENT
I AM THE REPRESENTATION OF WHY EXACTLY THEY DON'T WANT YOU FOCUSED ON YOUR DESTINY
IN THE FIRST PLACE FRANKIE
THAT'S THE TRUTH
HOW DO YOU HONOR THAT?

SOME OF THE STREET FELLAS ARE PROTECTING NERDS
YOU DON'T WANT THE FATE OF THE STREET FELLA
THE FATE OF THE SCARIEST NERD TURNS HISTORICAL
NOT STATISTICAL
BE THE RAREST STATISTIC

THE STATS ARE THE CHOICES
THE AMERICAN JUSTICE SYSTEM DOES NOT FEAR THE STREET CRIMERS
HOW DO YOU FEAR YOUR VICTIM A LITTLE RIGHT?
HONEST QUESTION
STREET CRIME BRANDS YOU
CAREER CRIMINAL
COMMIT CRIMES FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE
HORRIBLE USE OF SUCH A GIFT
DAM

WE ARE INTELLIGENT SAVAGES
WILLING TO DO ANYTHING FOR A DOLLAR
FOR WHAT THE DOLLARS REPRESENT
THE VALUE OF WHAT YOU WANT
POTENTIALLY
POTENTIALLY?

A LIFE OF CRIME IS THE SAME AS LIVING IN ANY NATIONAL PARK PROTECTED BY WILDLIFE
THE SAFEST AREA OF THE JUNGLE IS STILL IN THE JUNGLE
POP CULTURE PROMOTES CRIME
CRIME IS THE CIRCUS AS WELL
THESE ARE THE RULES

WHEN YOU START A CAREER
10-15 YEARS OVERNIGHT SUCCESS
THIS IS NOT AN OVERNIGHT PROCESS
THE PROCESS IS TO FALL IN LOVE WITH THE PROCESS
STAY IN LOVE WITH SAID PROCESS THRU PRACTICE
FOR DAM NEAR 2 DECADES
DECIDE TO NOT BE DETERRED FROM DESTINY WHILE DETERMINING WHERE TO DEDICATE YOU
DEDICATE YOURSELF TO SOMETHING A GOAL

I OWE IT TO YOU TO BE HONEST
YOU OWE ME YOUR HONESTY JUST FOR TAKING THE TIME TO WATCH ME
PLEASE TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK OF THE ART
THE MESSAGE HAD TO BE THERE
AS AN ARTIST ENTERTAINING YOU IS NOT THE OBJECTIVE
I AM NOT YOUR DANCING CHIMP
MY ART WILL RIP YOU TO SMITHEREENS
MY ART IS HONEST AND HONESTY IS ALWAYS FUNNY EVERY TIME
THIS IS MY HONEST ATTEMPT TO BE HONEST WITH MYSELF IN FRONT OF THE WORLD
I HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY NOW
LIFE CHANGING
I GAVE IT ALL I HAD
TO CHANGE THE LIVE I HAD
I ENJOYED THE DOWN TIME

ON YOUR JOURNEY THERE ARE TRAPS
THE CHAMPIONS MAKE IT OUT OF THE JUNGLE
AS FAR AS MAKING IT OUT OF THE JUNGLE GOES
TRAPS ARE HURDLES
USE THE MIND TO TRUMP PUMP JUMP THE OBSTACLE
THE REPUBLICANS GAVE OUT CHECKS
THE DEMOCRATS PUT A BLACK IN THERE AND JUST DO NOTHING
THE DEMOCRATIC ECONOMY SUFFERS AS THE REPUBLICAN ECONOMY BUFFERS
IN MODERN TIMES
WITHIN THE LAST 100 YEARS
THE REPUBLICANS LOOKED OUT FOR REPUBLICANS AND OTHERS AS WELL

WRITING YOUR OWN SCRIPT IS YOUR JOB
FREE WILL AND DESTINY
WILL YOU USE YOUR FREE WILL TO ATTAIN THE DESTINY WITH THE LIFE TIME GIVEN
THE LIFE AND THE TIMES OF YOU YOU KNOW?
THE NERDS IN THE HOOD HAVE TO WRITE THEIR OWN TICKET
EVERY ONE HAS TO WRITE THEIR OWN DESTINY
WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE
WHERE EVERYONE HAS A DESTINY
WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE
WHERE EVERYONE WON'T ATTAIN THEIR DESTINY
SURVIVE WAS ALL THEY COULD DO
DESTINY IS NOTHING WORTH SURVIVING WITHOUT
WITH DESTINY YOU THRIVE
IF IT IS NOT YOUR DESTINY IT HAS TO FAIL
YOU CAN ONLY WIN ONE WAY
THE ONE WAY YOU WERE MADE
THE ONE THING OR MANY THINGS YOU WERE MADE FOR
YOU THOUGHT YOU WERE MADE FOR OTHER PEOPLE RIGHT?
PURE LUNACY
YOU WERE MADE FOR YOURSELF
YOU BELONG TO THE WORLD
TO THE PUBLIC
YOUR PUBLIC
DO YOU EVEN HAVE A PUBLIC?
WHEN YOU POST DO THEY GET MAD?
THE NERDS WATCH THE DAMAGE DONE IN THE STREETS TO THEIR FRIENDS FROM THE OTHER REALMS OF REALITY
THE NERDS WERE PRAYING TO SURVIVE THE WHOLE TIME
WITH THEIR ACTIONS
HAVING UNPROTECTED SEX AND PRAYING FOR A BABY ARE THE SAME IN ACTION
YOUR ACTION WAS THE PRAYER
AS I TAKE THIS STEP I AM IN PRAYER
YOU SPEND 15 YEARS PURSUING ONE RABBIT
WONDERING IF THE UNIVERSE IS GOING TO SIT BACK AND DO NOTHING
ONE DAY THE UNIVERSE WILL NEED A SPECIFIC TYPE OF SOUL FOR A SPECIFIC ACTION
THEY'LL SCOUR THE PLANET FOR THE PROPER ENERGY
IT WILL BE YOUR TIME
YOUR LIFE HAS A DESTINY ATTACHED TO IT
IF YOU HATE ME FOR SAYING IT
I REMINDED YOU
YOU WERE GETTING LOST ALONG THE WAY
ALONG MANY PEOPLE
DISTRACTED FROM THEIR DESTINY
THE NERD IS THE ONE WHO STUDIED HIS DESTINY
THE ONLY WAY TO EXPLAIN THE NERD THOROUGHLY
ONLY BY STUDYING DO YOU LEARN
ONLY AFTER LEARNING CAN THE INFORMATION BE APPLIED
APPLY THE INFORMATION YOU LEARNED STUDYING YOUR OBJECTIVE
THE OBJECTIVE ISN'T MONEY
THE OBJECTIVE IS SURVIVAL
MONEY IS THE ULTIMATE TOOL OF SURVIVAL IN MODERN SOCIETY
OTHER PEOPLE USE GUNS, VIOLENCE AND FORCE IN ORDER TO GET MONEY BUT HEY WHO AM I TO JUDGED?
I AM ONE TO BE JUDGED AS WELL
DON CARLO SENT FOR YOU, NOT ANGIE
NEVER KICK A MAN WHILE HE IS DOWN
NEVER LOOK DOWN ON A MAN UNLESS YOU ARE PICKING HIM UP
INFORMATION IS TO BE SPREAD AND KNOWLEDGE IMPARTED

2023.03.25 17:51 Dry-Cow-162 First emotional breakdown today

FTM... I'm 11 weeks today. I mostly feel no motivation to do anything but lie on the couch and surf the internet or watch TV when I have downtime. Breaking through the inertia in order to leave the house feels impossible, and I really rely on my husband (whether that's fair or not) to get me out of the house when he is home. Going for walks/ hikes is something I really enjoy but have no interest in doing on my own. My husband's two childhood friends are coming over today (which I was stoked for as we planned on telling them today) and they are all going out for an apparently "guys only" hike before coming back here. Well, finding out just an hour ago that this hike is just for the guys, I lost it. Bawling. Hyperventilating. I feel crazy. I'm feeling shitty and sad today and really was looking forward to hopefully spending time with them all out of our apartment (the walls feel like they are closing in). I don't think this is anyone's fault. And I don't want to be somewhere I'm not wanted... I also get that my husband wants to spend time alone with his friends, but I just feel very lonely and upset right now, and no rational thinking is making me feel better. My husband called me while leaving work, because our text exchange got unexpectedly emotional and I just bawled and he, I'm sure, feels frustrated and confused that I'm acting so out of pocket. I've felt physically shitty during pregnancy, but this is the first full scale crying jag I've had.
Can you all tell me something you have cried about recently and make me feel less like I'm losing my damn mind?
