2023.03.27 18:10 Pleasant-Yoghurt7787 Tenant issue
Just want to vent.
Our tenant asked my mom if he can get a copy of his bedroom door’s key. Yes, a very reasonable request. Mom said she doesn’t have any key as all our bedroom doors are the type that can be locked from the inside, but no key to lock/unlock it from outside.
Tenant then proceeded to message me asking the same question.
I’m just like… bro, my mom already told you we don’t have any keys. What key would you then expect me to give you if I don’t have any keys either 🤷🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️
I just find it very of annoying that this tenant didn’t trust my mom’s answer & had to ask me the same thing to be reassured that the answer is the same.
I told him that if he wants a key, then I’ll have to change the entire door knob/lock system to one that can be locked/unlocked from the outside. Or that if he’s not happy with the door knobs as they are now, he can feel free to leave and look for another accommodation.
I’m just annoyed because I was already stressed at work & coming home to read a message like that was an additional unnecessary stress that I’d rather get rid of the cause of the unnecessary stress than get his money.

2023.03.27 18:08 andy5995 Mikey Still Enjoys Life Cereal
A satirical and fictitious story from my archives:
03 Nov 2003
After years of struggling with addiction and rampant criminal activity, officials have declared that Mikey is completely rehabilitated. I managed to contact Mikey through his parents and he granted me an exclusive interview. Most of what he said will be omitted and printed out of context. Here's what Mikey had to say:
"Yeah... I had some problems," he began. I noticed that Mikey would only speak in between mouthfuls while eating his beloved Life cereal. "When they first gave me a bowl of Life, I thought it was the best thing since... well... since breast milk, because I hated everything. They didn't think I'd really eat it because of my intense hatred of anything I'd ever eaten before. I only did it because I had a side bet going with the kid next to him. It was kind of like a pre-adolescent conspiracy."
The expression on Mikey's face became much more sad, and we could tell that painful memories were beginning to surface. Mikey maintained his resilience through great strain, and continued his tale.
"I... my only real crime is that I love too much. My parents were real happy at first. I'd never seen them smiling so much when they walked into the room."
There was a pause, and I turned to Mikey's parents and asked them what particularly pleased them. After 23 years of silence about the issue, his mother finally spoke candidly on the subject.
"His father and I were extremely worried about him. He hadn't eaten solid food for years. The only thing keeping him alive were daily intravenous feedings at the hospital. We were getting ready to leave for another routine trip to the hospital and told him to wait in the kitchen with his friend and our other son. We had no idea..." Mikey's mother had to stop momentarily to reach for a tissue. "The doctors knew that the intravenous feedings couldn't keep him alive forever, but they instilled so much hope in us." She started smiling again as the room brightened with her memory that day. "We came downstairs and we were absolutely astonished! He was eating! It was absolutely beautiful."
Mikey's father interjected his thoughts at this point.
"I thought the most beautiful thing I'd ever see was my children being born, but to see Mikey eating solid food surpassed my wildest fantasies. We decided to have a celebration and invited all of our friends and family. He wouldn't eat the cake though. He just sat there the whole time eating Life."
"So where did events take a turn for the worst?" I quietly asked. Mikey's father continued the discussion.
"Well... after a week of eating nothing but Life cereal, we bought some Golden Grahams which he tasted but promptly refused to finish. My wife and I were disappointed but we considered it a minor setback and were grateful that at least he still enjoyed eating Life cereal and didn't hate it, like everything else. We bought - and he rejected - 68 other major cereal brands. We were starting to become more disgruntled, but since we had saved so much money after the intravenous feedings ended, we didn't really care about the money. We then gave him 13 more flavors of cereal to try; this time they were generic in yellow and black bags. Some of these were labeled cinnamon cereal, sugared cereal, brown cereal, crunchy cereal, and just plain old, cereal. That last one clearly stated to '"Add Milk. Refer to a Life cereal box for instructions." We were positive that Mikey would latch on to cereal as he had latched on to the Life, but no joy. My wife and I decided it was a phase and he'd grow out of it. We made the decision to give it time. That was our biggest mistake."
Mikey's mother took over the interview at this point:
"Weeks went by, and turned into months. We were spending a fortune on dish-washing liquid, hot water, milk, and toilet paper. I couldn't even go to work anymore because all my extra time was spent doing dishes and going to the grocery store."
"One day when Mikey came home from school, I watched in utter fascination as he ate an entire box of Golden Grahams, then sat down in front of the television. That was pretty unusual for him. Usually when he got home, he'd only eat half a box of Life, then sat in the kitchen watching the box of Life on the table. He's very worried that someone could break in and steal his Life. We told him not to worry and he should go organize his baseball card collection. Before Life came along, he was so proud of his Babe Ruth card that he had it framed in solid gold, and kept it hidden inside a jewel-encrusted model of Yankee Stadium, which was originally created by the stadium designers when they made their proposal to build the actual Yankee Stadium. Of course Mikey had the jewels added later."
Mikey had just come back from the kitchen and was ready to talk again. He set his bowl of Life down on the Life table, which was formerly called the coffee table until 4 years ago. He spent 53 months fighting the legal system, and after numerous court battles and appeals, they had granted Mikey's Life table a legal change of name. The only condition was that it would only affect his coffee table, and not any other coffee tables in the nation. Mikey spoke up about the dramatic change in his perplexing eating habits:
"I was at school eating Life during study hall. The teachers and principal never did like me. To this day, I still think they were carrot sympathizers or had a deal with competing cereal brands. They sent me to detention where I met a guy... Guy asked me if I wanted to buy some grass. I told him that I wasn't interested. I told him that I hated everything. Guy kept pressuring me. I told him that I wouldn't eat anything but Life cereal. Guy told me that you don't eat grass... he said that you smoke it. I looked at him, not really trusting him all that much; I told him that I'd try anything once, but I'd probably hate it."
"After I smoked it, a whole new world opened up for me. I felt like Aladdin must have felt on his magic carpet. I couldn't believe anything could be better than Life cereal. But in reality, all I had on my hands was another addiction. When I was in prison, I realized that Life cereal was a gateway cereal. It only leads to the hard stuff, like marijuana, and Cinnamon Toast Crunch."
Mikey then told us the events leading to his capture, arrest, and imprisonment.
"It didn't take very long before my parents figured out that I was smoking weed. I was eating cereal brands they had never even heard of before, and some weren't even produced by American cereal companies. I was a senior in high school by this time. I was pretty rebellious, even for a teenager. I wouldn't even do the dishes when my parents asked. I know that kids who eat Trix are 9 times more likely to wash dishes when asked, but sometimes kids just don't care about stuff like facts."
I mean... I would wash a bowl and a spoon, but only when I needed some cereal and mom was out grocery shopping. About 3 years, 8 months, 5 days, 29 minutes, and 9 seconds after my Life addiction started, I made an important discovery: In a pinch, Life could be eaten with a fork. Sometimes I'd just have to wash a bowl. If I was opening a new box of Life, I'd pull out the bag and check for holes. If I found zero defects, I would just put the bag back in the box and pour the milk in. This saved a lot of time and it freed mom up so she had energy to go grocery shopping. The phone bill got really high after I found the number on the box for calling in questions and comments. Actually the bill wasn't expensive at first. But the geniuses who created Life had to temporarily ditch their toll-free number after I began calling them."
"I took notes every time I called with questions, and eventually was able to replicate Life to the exact molecule. Or so I thought. I was pretty cocky for a kid. I thought I could take on the whole Life corporation, and I was only 17. I thought that my chemistry set was really paying off. I was pretty devastated when I first tasted it. My synthesized Life was revolting. I hated it."
"Using the money I had earned from selling all my gold... Oh, I forget to tell ya, I had accidentally figured out how to turn lead into gold. It's actually not that hard if you have the right combination of milk in your conversion equations. So using all that money, I hired a team of molecular engineers to examine my work. They found that my Life had the exact same chemical and molecular composition, but each atomic particle had one less electron than the kind you buy at the store. The engineers were a little surprised that a missing electron would be cause enough for me to vomit when I ate it. They each tried it and found no difference in taste. I tried to explain to them that I hated everything, but they didn't seem to comprehend how that was possible."
"I'd like to sidetrack a little here and publicly apologize for what happened to that team of engineers. I later found out that after eating the Life I had created with my chemistry set, they were unable to eat anything else after that. They couldn't even eat the real Life cereal. It's unfortunate that my design notes became ruined when they dropped into a bowl of milk I left by my bed. My results couldn't be duplicated and they eventually starved to death. I was surprised that the same intravenous feedings that helped me as a child couldn't help them and I deeply regret causing any inconvenience to their family."
"Wow, I feel a lot better," as he spoons some more Life onto his eagerly awaiting tongue. "It's nice to apologize after carrying that burden of guilt for so long. I feel like I just unloaded a truck full of Life cereal from my shoulders," he declares with a sigh. "Anyway, I was pretty ticked off to find out my attempt to duplicate Life had failed. I guess I lost my temper a little. I threw a box of Lucky Charms at my chemistry set and stormed out of the house after grabbing all the boxes of Life cereal from the kitchen cabinets. It took 6 trips and I had to rent a U-Haul, but it was a damn good thing I managed to salvage them all. I was about 5 blocks away when I heard an explosion and saw a blinding flash of light in my rear view mirror. I didn't notice it right away because I was so focused on the fuzzy Life boxes hanging from the mirror, but after 30 seconds it finally dawned on me what had just happened. I don't buy chemistry sets anymore, they're just too dangerous. Plus I just keep asking myself, 'what good is science if I can't make my own Life cereal.' I also avoid Lucky Charms like the plague; I hate them anyway."
I holed up in an abandoned Life cereal warehouse for a few days. Finally I got the courage up to venture out because I needed to go to the post office. I did a lot of mass-mailings back then. They're all just coupons for Life cereal. Since the limit is only one or two boxes per customer, I set up a system and made some important nation-wide contacts. I never understood why the limits were imposed - I thought it was a really bonehead move to put a limit on Life cereal - but I have complete trust in the masterminds at the Life corporation."
"The people who received my coupons bought Life cereal for me and shipped it free of charge. In return for that, I sent them my really easy method of turning lead into gold. I didn't really feel as if I was taking advantage of them. Even though they were doing me a big favor and weren't getting any Life cereal in return, they knew what they were getting into when they signed up. Besides... anyone who willingly gives up their Life cereal to ship it to a stranger should be on some kinda medication for mental disorders. One time I saw a shrink for a disorder that was unrelated to giving up Life cereal. He tried giving me Prozac, but I hated it."
"I arrived at the post office and saw my picture on the wall! I couldn't believe it, but I was on the Ten Most Wanted list! Apparently not only had my chemistry set caused an explosion, but it took out an entire city block! And then I read more of the short article next to my face, and it said there was some kind of unique interaction during the chemical fallout, and almost everyone in the city died from food poisoning during breakfast the morning after I had my run-in with that box of Lucky Charms.. The only lives spared were people who ate Life cereal for breakfast that day. The authorities thought it was a premeditated Life attack. In the photograph, I noticed that next to my left cheek, a box of Life had been superimposed on the photograph of my face. The caption read, 'Have you seen this man?' I really started panicking because as I was reading the article, I had been holding a box of Life cereal, and had been rubbing it lovingly across my right cheek."
"I was so freaked out that I dropped my box of Life and ran out the door. Right after the fresh air hit me, I realized my mistake almost immediately and ran back in to get the box so I could escape and not worry so much about losing my Life. After that, everything gets really blurry when I try to remember. I pretty much had to live on the street, sleeping in a cardboard box, which was basically a bunch of Life cereal boxes glued together. I never threw away the boxes of Life that I ate. I didn't have to worry about shelter and I had a new house every week. Every time the law caught up with me, I would duck into the nearest grocery store and head to the Life cereal aisle. The cops never thought to look for me there; I guess they didn't expect me to make such an obvious mistake."
"I got my basic needs met by lying, cheating, and stealing. I pretty much gave up weed at that point. I didn't have enough connections to get both Life and weed. I chose Life cereal. One time a religious organization offered me food and and a place to stay. The only condition was that I couldn't eat meat or other animal flesh while I stayed there. I agreed to that, and told them that I hated animal flesh and meat anyway. My time with those religious folks was pretty short-term. I was thrown out after a week because they felt my Life cereal habit violated five of the 'Seven Deadly Sins.'"
"That's really about all I remember from my time on the street. The Law caught up to me finally when they were looking for the Trix Rabbit (who was in disguise), and I was arrested and given no Life. They declared me not guilty by reason of insanity, but sentenced me to community service where I had to pick up cereal boxes off all the highways. I hated that job. Except for when I found a Life box and it made it all worthwhile."
"It was after my community service ended when I began my lengthy legal battle to rename my Life table. My parents had moved into a new house, and were willing to forget about the old one. The problem I had at that time was mostly financial. I didn't have enough for any Life cereal and my parents wouldn't buy it for me anymore. I guess I went a little crazy. I used to do impressions and accents when I was a kid, so I felt it was time to put those talents to the ultimate test. After trying out my Irish accent with an old connection of mine, he loaned me a handgun and I stole a leprechaun costume. Well... you've probably heard this story a million times before, so I'll just skip the gory details."
"While in prison, I was repeatedly beaten by the guards for not eating. I think deep down they really empathized with me when I told them I wouldn't eat jail or prison food because I hated it. I managed to make some connections while in the joint, and scored enough Life cereal to last me until I got out. I was eventually released into my parents' custody and given probation."
There was a burning question on my mind that I had to ask. "Mikey, if you hate everything, how is it that you have milk with every bowl of Life?"
"Well, as I mentioned in the beginning of this interview, before I discovered Life cereal, which I usually refer to as my PreLife era, I only had breast milk or was fed intravenously. It doesn't even have to be my mom's. It seems strange because I hate... y'know... I've been thinking... Even though I hate a lot of things - mostly food - I don't hate everything. That statement is kind of an over-generalization."
"I think I understand. Now, Mikey," I asked him, "You've already eaten two boxes of Life in the two hours that I've been here. Could you define exactly how you have been rehabilitated?"
"That's just something the public was told to make them feel safe again after I was put back into mainstream society. The truth is that I'm perfectly safe; my basic needs are being met. In exchange for that thing about making gold from lead, The Life corporation pretty much told me that I wouldn't have to worry about acquiring Life cereal anymore. They implanted a microchip inside my skull which simulates the taste of Life on any food I eat. It's great because I have a wider variety of milk to choose from; and I just keep eating Life cereal anyway. I accidentally found out that if you have that chip in your skull while you eat Life cereal that Life tastes twice as good! By the way, you can call me Michael now."

2023.03.27 18:05 hellodanno Recommendations for a total noob?
Hello all. Sorry if this has been asked a million times already, I did a search on the sub to try to find an answer and realized there are so many variables when it comes to home theater setups like space and budget and so on.
I started my journey researching sound bars 😱 ... and ended up here (thankfully)
Was wondering if you guys could recommend a speaker setup that ticks the following boxes:
- Budget $200-$400
- Ideally a 5.1 setup
- Very open to starting with 2.1/3.1 and adding components later
- Prefer starting with a setup that allows for wireless for any speakers located behind us (when we go 5.1 etc). Wired power is totally OK (we have plugs behind us), just looking to avoid wires from TV or receiver going across the room.
Thanks in advance for any help.

2023.03.27 18:05 Runin2Rich New 7900x 3D/MSI b560 wont post with typical Flare X5 kit
Hello fellow builders. Experienced builder here (RichD-PC) scratching his head on this one.
Symptoms: I did the bios update, installed windows, did all the updates, drivers etc. Then I turned on XMP and it booted first time. Then I did a restart and it would not post again (yellow and red debug light). I then cleared CMOS, and it wouldnt post again the first time. After several attemps to boot it up, it finally booted. I then tried to run XMP and it would not post again. I tried a second kit of Flare X5 ram and same thing. I was able to get the FlareX to boot once or twice with XMP enabled. It passed all the tests as well during that boot up (OCCT and CBr20). I removed my working Trident ram from my system and had no issues. The Trident kit is supposed to be same thing (same sub timings and Samsung B-die). XMP works etc, Cinebench R20 runs for 30 minutes, OCCT runs CPU and ram no problem. I then returned the MSI Edge board and swapped it for the B650 Carbon. Same issues appeared as above. The Trident worked, then I swapped back to Flare X5 and first attempt it would not boot. Both ram kits are on the QVL for both MSI B650 boards.
MSI B650 MPG Edge wifi and MSI B650 Carbon Wifi
Problem ram: Flare X5 (Free kits from MC) F5-6000j3636F16GX2-FX5
Ram that will post: Trident Z5 RGB F5-6000j3636F16GX2-TZ5NR
Ryzen 9 7900x 3D
Bios updates from 3/8/23 and 3/22/23 have been used on both boards
The CPU works on multiple boards (Asus Crosshair, MSI Tomahawk)
I have two kits of Flare X5. Both have worked on other systems. I tried both kits on this problem system
Anyone else experiencing weird things with this combination?

2023.03.27 18:02 LocationOk1668 What is the purpose of using your own server?
There are several reasons why one might choose to use their own server
- Control: By owning your own server, you have complete control over it. This means you can choose the hardware, software, and settings that best suit your needs. You can also customize the server to meet specific requirements or integrate it with other systems.
- Security: Using your own server can be more secure than using a third-party service. With your own server, you have full control over access to your data, and you can implement security measures such as firewalls and encryption to protect against unauthorized access.
- Reliability: When you use a third-party service, you are at the mercy of their uptime and reliability. By using your own server, you can ensure that your services and applications are always available to your users.
- Cost: Depending on your needs, using your own server can be more cost-effective than using a third-party service. You only pay for the hardware and software you need, and you don't have to worry about monthly subscription fees or usage charges.
- Privacy: By using your own server, you can ensure that your data is not being shared with third-party providers. This can be particularly important if you are dealing with sensitive information or if you want to ensure that your users' data is kept private.

You’ve stumbled across this page for a reason.
It’s not because you’ve heard of this crazy new business model called ‘SMMA’ and it’s not because you’re struggling to sign your first client.
It’s because you’re exasperated. You’re frustrated. And you know you can do better. You’re stuck in a pair of “golden handcuffs”: running a mildly-successful agency but beholden to your clients, your staff, and your phone.
You’ve broken the one inviolable rule of running an agency and not kept a full pipeline.
You know that you can reach the upper echelon of agency owners making six-and-seven figures, whilst working less than six-and-seven hours a week. You just don’t know how… My name’s Iman Gadzhi and since 2017, I’ve run IAG Media. In this time, I’ve worked with some of the biggest names in the industry, enjoyed six-figure months and made my clients millions.
I’ve also lost multiple clients in a row, been over-worked and chained to the agency that I started to give me freedom.
All the while, I’ve refined, tweaked and optimized my agency whilst also creating GrowYourAgency.com – the world’s largest education company for agency owners.
But in early 2020, I realised there was a problem. For every beginner agency owner desperate to sign their first client, there were three experienced agency owners desperate for guidance, systems and processes, and a solution to their broken agency model.
It’s why I created Copy Paste Agency…
…not so I can show you how to sign a client or perform basic outreach.
So you could take, copy and paste the exact methods I use in my own agency into your agency. Copy Paste Agency students learn:
How I continue to run a multiple-six-figure agency from home with a skeleton staff and minimal expenses.
How to command higher retainers… and retain those clients for longer.
How to automate, delegate, and optimize every area of your agency from lead generation and sales to service delivery and client communication.
Plus get access to the latest tools and software used by my own agency, IAG Media such as reporting templates.
2023.03.27 17:59 GlobeOpinion 'Rethink the 80-hour workweek for medical trainees'
Editorial in the Boston Globe:
Kayty Himmelstein works 80 hours a week and has at times worked 12 consecutive days. In the past, she has lacked time to schedule routine health care appointments. She and her partner moved from Philadelphia to Cambridge for Himmelstein’s job, and Himmelstein is rarely home to help with housework, cat care, or navigating a new city. Her work is stressful.
It’s not a healthy lifestyle. Yet it is one that, ironically, health care workers are forced to live. Himmelstein is a second-year infectious disease fellow working at Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women’s Hospital after three years as an MGH internal medicine resident.
“I was not getting the primary care I’d recommend for my own patients while I was in residency because I just didn’t have time during the day to go see a doctor,” Himmelstein said.
Himmelstein is among the residents and fellows seeking to unionize
at Mass General Brigham, over management’s opposition. The decision whether to unionize is one for residents, fellows, and hospital managers to make. But the underlying issue of grueling working conditions faced by medical trainees must be addressed. In an industry struggling with burnout, it is worth questioning whether an 80-hour workweek remains appropriate. Hospitals should also consider other changes that can improve residents’ quality of life — whether raising salaries, offering easier access to health care, or providing benefits tailored to residents’ schedules, like free Ubers after a long shift or on-site, off-hours child care.
“There are a lot of movements to combat physician burnout overall, and I think a lot of it is focused on resiliency and yoga and physician heal thyself, which really isn’t solving the issue,” said Caitlin Farrell, an emergency room physician at Boston Children’s Hospital and immediate past president of the Massachusetts Medical Society’s resident and fellow section. “What residents and fellows have known for a long time is we really need a systems-based approach to a change in the institution of medical education.”
The 80-hour workweek was actually imposed to help medical trainees. In the 1980s, medical residents could work 90- or 100-hour weeks — a practice flagged as problematic after an 18-year-old New Yorker died
from a medication error under the care of residents working 36-hour shifts.

Now, the last time I've built a PC was about 15 years ago together with my dad so this is all completely new to me again, and I love it :) I've been trying to create a build and so far I've come up with the following list. Now my budget is actually a little lower, I'd prefer to get this down to around €1500,- but if that's not doable without a huge decrease in performance I'll spend the extra cash. I've got no preference for AMD/Intel or AMD/Nvidia, I based the choice of GPU brand exclusively on the fact that it's currently on sale. I'd love to hear any feedback and/or suggestions you guys might have. Thanks! PCPartPicker Part List

There was slight turbulence when the docking clamps disengaged and released the ship from the station's embrace. As the station shrunk in the porthole, my pad buzzed with a notification. Opening the file, I saw the mission briefing was done digitally rather than face-to-face like usual. I looked up and witnessed the same thing happen to the rest of the team.
‘Why would they insist on giving us the details after the mission has already launched? Does this have something to do with the blockade of Venlil Beta they set up a while ago?’
I asked myself as I accessed the file. The higher ups had been strangely insistent on preventing any information from leaking, going as far as to take away our personal items and shielding the cargo bay against all communication frequencies.
As I read I started to understand, apparently a rogue planet had somehow appeared in Venlil Beta’s orbit, and they wanted to keep a lid on it as much as possible. I shivered as I imagined the stampedes that could result from this leaking. A planet sized object appearing in the system with no clue of how it got there would make the Arxur seem non threatening by comparison. Continuing to read, I saw that I would be providing security for the science detail who would do all the actually important stuff.
‘Probably explains why they dragged me out of the correctional facility’
I thought grimly, giving a high risk position to someone who nobody will cry over would have been my move too.
Self pity aside, I put my pad away and pulled out my issued pistol. They had placed a remote activated shock collar around my neck and it was controlled by the most twitchy fingered Venlil they could find. I need to be careful as to not startle or accidentally threaten anyone since being electrocuted was not my idea of a good start to this mission. While other Venlil would scoff at how ineffective and low quality this model was, I was just amazed that they had given me an actual weapon.
“Planning who you’re going to kill, predator?”
I looked up to see scientist #1 (I didn’t bother learning their names) glaring at me, his eyes smoldering in hatred.
“No, I am checking my weapon so I can stop anything from killing you,”
I calmly responded.
He attempted to throw another insult at me until another scientist next to him cut him off before he could say anything.
“Why are you antagonizing it!? You don’t want it to get angry and eat us don’t you?”
He hissed, clearly underestimating my hearing. With an internal sigh I tashed the pistol back into my pack, I leaned against the wall of the modified patrol ship as the pilot called over the PA,
“we have officially left Venlil Primes orbit, I recommend you get comfortable, it’s going to be a long flight.” Taking the pilot's advice to heart, I slumped over onto my side, pulling my knees up to my chest as my tail wrapped around me. Closing my eyes, I caught a muttered “monster” before darkness overtook me. [Subject conscience lost Memory transcription interrupted] [Resuming transcription]
“Wake up, predator!”
Upon hearing one of the scientists shout, I opened my eyes and peered up at the one responsible for waking me up. The scientist that was antagonizing me earlier was standing across from with the rest of the “team” huddling behind him. I soon stood up and stretched out my limbs and body, trying to ease the soreness in my muscles.
“Have we reached our destination?” I asked with a hint of assertiveness in my tone.
“That is correct, now go get your vacsuit, we need our meatshield after all.” The contentious scientist responded.
Swishing my tail in acknowledgment, I walked over to the airlock and peered outside the hatch’s window to the landscape of this moon. Despite it being near pitch black, the glow of Venlil Beta provided enough light for me to notice the object’s distinguishing features. The landscape before me was odd to say the least: rather than craters, loose debris, and rocky mountains, there were vein-like structures covering the surrounding terrain. They ranged from the size of my tail to over 3 times larger than the mountains of Venlil Prime. The view was unnerving and it seemed more like flesh than anything. I was both terrified and fascinated by what I saw, making me want to leave and observe from afar. Regardless of how I felt, I still had a job to do.
I returned my attention to getting ready and quickly threw on my vacsuit, tucking my pistol into my holster. I double-checked for any possible openings in case it was faulty before the airlock began decompressing. I was the first one to step foot outside to make sure the coast was clear before the researchers came out from behind. They set up a perimeter around the ship and installed some light poles to get a better view of the ground below. They took some samples and analyzed their composition before one of the scientists went back on board. Although I was supposed to be keeping watch, my helmet managed to catch the communication frequency between them and I heard what was going on.
“It says the soil sample is completely composed of organic compounds. No trace of any space debris, natural or artificial. Not to mention its high density and resistance to ionizing radiation; just a handful of this stuff alone has the mass equivalent of 10 Venlil back home! We have to report this.”
To say that this was strange was an understatement: Not only was this place like a living nightmare, but it felt… alive.
I decided to hike up one of the nearby hills to get a better vantage point; I scanned the area around our landing site to see if there was anything of interest from above. The vein-like structures stretched all the way to the horizon everywhere I looked. Despite not seeing anyone, chills went up my spine and it felt like we were being watched. I looked around once again and saw the antagonistic scientist from earlier eyeing me from below. For a moment I thought he was making sure I didn’t attempt to run away, but the look in his eyes said something else. Deciding to try and build some good will, I hopped back down to the landing site and approached the peering researcher.
“Is there something wrong? I can scout the area if you feel as if there’s something here”
The snide researcher simply stood there, studying me, then finally spoke, “Oh I'm fine. I’m just making sure the Yotul was paying attention.”
Confused, I asked, “But there isn’t a Yotul in the group, we’re all Venlil.”
The scientist snorted, “That’s what you think predator. Why haven't you gone back to your Arxur brothers yet?”
“But I’m not an Arxur or a Yotul, I’m a Venlil, just different.” I countered as a tinge of sadness began working its way into my voice.
Without warning, the scientist stepped forward, swiping his paw through the air mere centimeters from cracking my faceplate. He was visibly angry, and I could tell from his demeanor he intended to throw more than just insults
“NO! You are no Venlil, you’re a monster, a disgrace, a savage, a predator!” he bleated, his eyes filled with contempt.
I instinctively stepped back, my paw dropping to the pocket at my waist. I quickly opened it, revealing the butt of the pistol, but before I could do anything 100 volts of electricity coursed through my body. My paws immediately went for the collar around my neck as I fell to the ground. I attempted to remove the device from my neck but was unsuccessful. I glanced up at the researcher standing above me only to find a sadistic look on his face. He was enjoying this. I quickly got back up on my feet and tried to placate the researcher before he could do any real damage.
“HEY!” there was a sudden shout and another scientist marched over, stopping the confrontation before it could deteriorate any further.
“Teklov, come with me, I’m moving to a different area and I need someone to escort me. Velnek, please continue analyzing these soil samples,” she declared, then turned and began marching away. Quickly I moved to catch up, falling into step alongside her. There was a huff behind us as Velnek begrudgingly got back to work. As we began climbing one of the large veins my thoughts drifted back towards the confrontation. ‘Why was he so aggressive? He has been condescending and hateful, but this was something else’
“You seem pretty calm considering your face plate could’ve been shattered. Mind keeping watch as I unpack something?” She requested politely.
“Of course, It’s my job isn’t it?” I responded
She began to unload segments of a small seismograph. It was quickly put together before being planted into the ground and activated. As soon as it was active, it had already detected activity and recorded the incoming data. It was analyzed by her pad and the information was being displayed on her device. When she looked at what she was receiving, there was a confused look on her face. She rebooted the equipment several times in case what was being received was an error of some sorts. When she noticed that there was no change, she was completely motionless. Rather than detecting alternating seismic patterns, what it detected was consistent rhythmic vibrations getting progressively weaker by the minute. Something like this is unheard of; the only way for a phenomenon like this to occur is if there is something deliberately creating these patterns.
“These readings don’t make any spehing sense! The stupid thing must be broken,” she grumbled, shaking the pad in frustration. Silently I watched her complain under her breath as she started taking the seismograph apart to perform a proper diagnostic.
After several minutes of silence she glanced over to me as I studied the horizon, the feeling of being watched still tickling the back of my neck.
“You’re not one for idle conversation, are you?” she asked, I swished my tail in confirmation. She returned to working on the seismograph. After a few more minutes she commented, “You’re about as emotional as a plank of wood. I assume that’s why you got locked up?”
“That’s correct ma’am,” I answered, she probably read my file so there was no point denying it.
She chuckled, “Don’t have to be so formal, you can use my name you know.” After I didn’t respond she looked up, “You didn’t bother learning our names, did you?”
I glanced down at my feet in embarrassment, “That’s correct, ma’am.”
Putting the seismograph back together she stood up, “Considering you’re stuck working with people like Velnek I’m not surprised. For the record I’m not like him, whatever they may say about you, you have been nothing but respectful and professional this whole time.”
Planting the seismograph back in the ground she turned to face me, “As far as I’m concerned you have done nothing to justify your treatment by the others.”
“Thank you ma’am,” I responded, genuinely warmed by her words.
“Shella,” she corrected.
“Thank you, Shella,” I rephrased.
With an approving tail swish, Shella turned back to the instrument. As she redid the readings, I turned back to the horizon, that foreboding feeling from before returning. Something was off about this place, and it felt like there was a presence here, Like someone was watching us just beyond my line of sight. My paw drifted down to my pocket, but I stopped it before it could reach it. I didn’t want the operators back on Venlil Prime to think I was about to pull a gun on Shella, but I still got a light shock for my troubles.
As I rubbed my singed neck, a call came over the radio, “Teklov, Shella, we need you back at the ship now!”
Looking over at Shella I saw her freeze, then she quickly stood up and started sprinting back towards the landing site, myself just a step behind.
“What happened?” I inquired over the radio.
There was an agitated breath on the other end, “Velnek went insane, he killed Wesley! We need you back to restrain him before he gets to anyone else!”
As soon as I heard this, I immediately quickened my pace, pulling ahead of Shella. When we reached the landing site, I noticed one of the scientist’s face plates was broken open. He laid dead atop his research apparatus, face puffed up from the low pressure and eyes glazed over with blood frozen on his face. It was a horrible sight to see, but my attention quickly turned away from him and towards Velnek. He was tussling one of his partners with a sharp object in his paws, trying to pierce his suit and kill him as he did Wesley. Before any more damage could be done, I called out to Velnek to get his attention.
“VELNEK! LET HIM GO NOW!”
The feral Venlil looked at me with ferocity in his eyes. I could tell by just looking at him he wasn’t the same person he was before landing. Something in him changed, altering him from a mean spirited member of the team to a ruthless predator that only wanted to kill. I never thought I would ever see a Venlil as smart as him become so animalistic so quickly. Before I knew it, he got off of his victim and pounced towards me with a weapon in his grip. Without any hesitation, I pulled out my gun and shot him several times in the chest, sending him crashing into the ground, laying limp by my feet. Not taking any chances I lined up on the back of his head and fired one last shot.
Putting my gun away, I walked over to Velneks former partner, crouching next to him and scanning his suit for any damage.
“Are you okay?” I asked him.
Glancing wearily between me and Velneks dead body he signed an affirmative. Sticking out a paw to him he hesitated, then tentatively grabbed it and I pulled him up to his feet. In the corner of my eye I saw the other researchers eyeing me with abject fear, even Shella seemed shaken. I don’t think they’ve ever seen someone kill another with such a lack of hesitation. I honestly didn’t think I had it in me either, then again I didn’t have time to consider my actions so it was either shoot or die. It was the first time in my life I had to think on my feet. I’m just glad I picked the right choice.
“Well then, any idea what sent Velnek on a rampage?” Shella asked, looking at the dead researcher with consternation.
“Will you please tell us everything that happened?” I asked Velneks partner as non-threatening as possible. I was now regretting not learning the others' names.
“R-Right. We were studying the soil sample as well as hypothesizing the possible inner structure of these irregular rock formations when Valnek began talking to himself. Velnek asked him if he was doing alright and if he needed anything, but when he replied it was with hostility. He wanted to know why he was being so aggressive, but I think it was his persistence that angered him further. I would understand his frustration from me prying at his emotions, but how he reacted was unlike him. When I saw him attack Wesley it was as if I was looking at a vicious beast rather than a well known friend.”
He spoke clearly and comprehensively with a hint of sadness and regret in his voice. I could tell in his body language that he believed that what occurred was a result of his doing. I put my hand on his shoulder and reassured him that what happened wasn’t his fault. There was nothing he could do to prevent this change in behavior or even the rampage. He couldn’t be blamed for something he couldn’t control.
“If that’s the case then I think we might have a new version of predator's disease. One significantly worse and more impactful than anything we have ever seen. It would be best if we proceed with vigilance and get everyone tested, that’s including you Teklov” Shella spoke out from behind, trying to appropriately assess the situation with caution.
We all returned back to the ship, Wesley would be given a proper burial, while Velnek would likely be unceremoniously dumped into deep space. As I removed my Vac suit I heard a throat clearing behind me, turning I saw Shella nervously standing behind me.
“Um, Teklov… for the safety of everyone aboard I’m going to have to confiscate your firearm,'' she said, her face stretched in obvious tension. I reached into the pocket of my vac suit and carefully grabbed it, holding it by the barrel; I turned back to her and gave her my pistol. With a quiet sigh of relief, she grabbed it and quickly secured it in one of the lockers.
As the remaining scientists bustled about, prepping the equipment to research this new predator disease, I looked out the view port to the terrain outside. When I looked outside one last time, I noticed a figure atop one of the mountains afar. It vaguely resembled a Venlil, but they weren’t wearing a vacsuit. I squinted my eyes to get a better look at who it was and how they were alive until Shella yelled my name.
“Teklov! We need you to help us with Velnek’s body after we’re done. We’ll need to perform an autopsy to see if there are any remains of the disease and if it altered his brain chemistry” she said calmly yet hastily.
“Understood” I replied with a tail swish of acknowledgement.
I looked outside again only to see the figure gone. It must’ve figured out I was looking at it and ran away, but I’m still confused on how it was able to survive in a vacuum. The feeling of uneasiness came back once again, but it was even stronger than before.
’What is this feeling? No matter where I’m standing I feel like something is looking at me, judging me for how I was born from afar.’
I wanted to leave this place and go back home so I wouldn’t have to be here anymore. Being in that box they put me in seems better now than it was before. I want to be alone, I want to be in a place where no one can see me.

2023.03.27 17:52 Buck_Joffrey Wealth Formula Episode 361: The Calm Before the Storm with Harry Dent
Catch the full episode: https://www.wealthformula.com/podcast/361-the-calm-before-the-storm-with-harry-dent/
Buck: Welcome back to the show, everyone, today. My guest on Wealth from your podcast Is Harry Dead? Harry's been on before. He's a bestselling author and one of the most outspoken financial editors in America. And he is famous for having developed a unique method for studying economics around the world and uses his analysis to provide insights on what to expect in the future. Instead of focusing on endless graphs that assume people behave rationally, Harry looks at real people making real economic decisions for themselves and their family. He also combines demographics, which is a big difference between him and a lot of others, I think with actual spending to inform his research. So here he is, the author of What to Do When the Bubble Pops: Personal and Business Strategies For The Coming Economic Winter, Zero Hour and Be Your Own boss. Harry, welcome back to the program.
Harry: Yeah, nice to be back.
Buck: But so yeah, it's funny that we we actually I think the last time we talked was in in the middle of COVID when we had these huge, you know, huge government handouts and helicopter money and all that. Why don't you give sort of your perspective on what's happened since then and you know, obviously now we're in the middle of some who knows what right at this moment. But why don't you give us a little bit of a catch up in terms of your thinking? Okay. I mean, first of all, the first thing to get the greatest boom in history, which I alone call back in the 1980s, the baby boom generation moving into their peak spending at age 46, 1983 to 2007. Everybody thought the US has been Asia was going to take us over and we had the greatest boom in history.
Now the problem is that ended in late 2007, exactly when my 46 year lag for big spending on the Baby Boom birth and act peak. And we've gone into a slow down ever since that slowdown actually in demographics spending potential. The most important thing in the economy among a few others really is bottoming around this year, 2023. Okay, So what happened? For the first time in history, we had a very sharp downturn. The deepest recession since 1980, 82. In 2009, just as my model would have predicted the end of the baby boom. But then the Fed and government said, Well, we can't have this, especially with all the debt and all the leverage that they had incurred. And so they've just been printing money ever since.
So from early 2009 on, we've been in the printing money economy to try to compensate for a natural slowdown in spending, which will then naturally come back up next year from around late 2024. And in 2037, when the millennials have their spending boom. So so that's my basic premise. Demographic cycles every 40 years, typically boom when a new generation is spending and then slow down. But governments have been fighting this for 13, 14 years. And what they did by printing all this money back is only one way. Can go. They buy financial assets. They send us checks in the mail. You know, in Homer Simpson especially, it would have been more of a consumer inflation thing and a boom. And everyday people know the rich get richer.
Just continued the money went into financial assets. Yeah. So it drives up bonds. It drives up stocks in particular real estate across the board, particularly high in real estate and, you know, trade up homes and that sort of thing, and office buildings. And now that's where we see things crack.
So you have this model that obviously, you know, it has been fairly accurate in terms of predicting things based on demographics. But obviously, how do you adjust for a lot of these major, you know, currencies like you can't hardly predict COVID in and all of these kinds of things that kind of come in the middle of this? I mean, does that rock you off course at all?
You can't predict you can't predict COVID. But this is where I think the central banks and particularly the Fed made a huge mistake. You know, COVID was a virus. This happens that happened in 1918 to 20. You know, last a year or two, people get sick, they get to spend less, less money. You don't need to have massive stimulus because there's nothing wrong with economy.
People just got to get over the virus. But since the Fed and central banks have been stimulating so hard since we really did go into a deep slowdown from 2008 nine forward, they panicked and they just blew the lid off. They did. The Fed printed 5 trillion more than they had printed in 30 years before. In two years. And on top of that, the government added about 5 trillion commitments to fiscal spending. So now we've had this skyrocketing short term little bubble. Yeah, that is not going to last because since they loose, you know, since they loosened so much there, they have been forced to tighten because inflation suddenly went from one to 2% to 9%. And I've got the best inflation indicator in a well world.
It's workforce growth. Same thing, demographics. And it says inflation should be 1 to 2% for as far as the eye can see. We're never going to see high inflation again. This 9.1% was 100% is over. Printing and overstay modulus. And now we're in this time where oh well, now the Fed's tightening and people think, well, but the economy is strong, you can handle it. No, the economy's been weak since 2009. Why? They've been printing money for 40 years. Yeah. Yeah. Why would any why would central banks have to print unprecedented amounts of money in greater and greater amounts, especially in COVID, unless the economy was weak and it is weak and it's about to turn strong a year from now. So my view but it is very simple.
We need to clear out the garbage, the bad debts, the zombie companies, which are all at record levels beyond anything compared to 1929 or 1968 or any other major boom. That is, we need to clear out this stuff so the millennials can have their boom. Yeah, And without all this debt overhang and stuff and all this stuff. But but nobody wants to do that because of course, that would, without question, cause a recession.
And in fact, we should have been in more like a depression off and on from 28 to 23, just like 1932, 42 back two generations. And back, you know, tech cycles, everything I study. So that's where we're at. We we need to let the economy deleverage for a year or two so we can have the next boom. The truth is, they're not going to.
Buck: Yeah, they're not going to do anything.
Harry: Right now, the markets are where both the markets are going down just on this little tightening. And now the Fed's got this thing. Well, do we suddenly turn around and loosen, which would look really stupid after they tighten, after all this loosening? I think they're I think the Fed made a mistake here. If they'd accept more modest stimulus, they might have gotten away with this a little longer by overdoing it. They've had to tighten. They're going to have to at least go a little more tightening, you know, and and I think that's enough that the economy's weakness will show later this year. And I think we're going to see stocks go a lot lower. And this will be good stocks to go back to normal. Home prices are the most affordable by far in all of history, roaring Twenties didn't see a great housing boom because credit wasn't so easy back then.
You had a five year mortgage and 50% down, you know, speculation back then and housing like today. So this real estate bubble globally is the biggest sign of how big and global this bubble is. The stock bubble we're having the second tech driven stock bubble 2000 now 2021. We need this bubble to deleverage bad debts and stuff, and then we can have the next boom. If not, we're going to be in murky waters. And I think it's going to happen despite the government here, because they did finally have to tighten from their own miscalculation. I do think they could get this going another year or two if they had overreacted to October and nobody would have blame them for a slowdown over Coke.
Buck: Yeah, I think the thing that I think is interesting to look at right now in lieu of the fact that the rates were moved up so quickly and, you know, it's seems like the the Fed's mantra in general has been in these situations you move up until something breaks. But something broke. Right. And move in the sense that we've got these regional banks moving out a couple of bank failures and that kind of thing.
But inflation numbers come out today and I think it's still 6%. So now they're kind of, in my view, in a little bit of a pickle. Right. Like the optics of of raising interest rates in the middle of, you know, what looks like a very unstable economy, doesn't seem like it doesn't seem like necessarily the best idea. However, I haven't seen them back up on this. And the major banks mostly are predicting that they're going to go ahead with the 25 at least 25 basis points of increase, except for Goldman Sachs. Who doesn't think they're going to do it? What's your take? What's your take on on, you know, where we are right now and what the Fed may or may not do next?
Harry: Well, you know, it is between zero and 25 based on what the 50 basis points was on the table before this happened. And now it's not okay. But the point to me is what people don't understand and any addiction expert wouldn't understand is any addiction takes more and more of the artificial stimulus to keep it going. And if you don't, you go into detox and you detox, which is very difficult. So all of this stimulus, it's always taken more and more. And now just just for them to not keep stimulating the economy, to start detoxing and death start bailing again. Here you see this bank. There's three banks now under question. Now, there will be many, many more. There are many companies overleveraged because debt has been so easy and interest rates have been at least 2 to 300 basis points lower than they should have been when.
So when money is easy to get and low in interest, people will speculate more and ramp up more debt. And then when things slow down, all that debt and all those bad debts and zombie companies come flushing out. And that's already happening very quickly here. So this is really a duel between the central banks and the real economy.
I have studied the real economy most of my adult life. And I'll tell you what the real economy wants. The economy likes the boom and expand all types of new innovations and new generation. And then it likes to sit back, it likes to go to sleep and reset things and wash out bad debts and stuff. Recessions are just is necessary. The long term growth is booms. And the fact that economists don't get that mean they don't understand the economy. No surprise you ever get economy. Looks like they've never had such a run of business. No, nobody has. That's the problem. Okay. Yeah, I come out of the business world. Okay. I came out of Harvard Business School, went straight into consulting the Fortune 100, turning around these companies who had done well in the fifties and sixties, seventies.
And we're starting to feel foreign competition. And they were like laggards. And then I said, Well, this is too boring. And I started consulting two new ventures, the new baby boom oriented new ventures dealing with this new generation. And that's when I accidentally discovered, Oh my God, the baby boom generation is the biggest thing that's ever hit the United States in the developed world. And we're going have the greatest boom in history when everybody thinks Asia and Japan is going to take over. And they will eventually. But it hasn't been the case. U.S. and Europe have had a great boom. U.S. especially, and now we're peaking and our millennial generation will will at least keep us afloat longer than Europe. But the demographics say we need to slow down.
And the worst thing you can do is keep carrying bad debts in the future. That's why recessions are necessary. And look, it's like sleeping and awakening how much we wake 16 seven now it's 60 to 70 now. How much do we sleep? 6 to 8. Okay. It's the same with booms, 25, 26 years, and then 12 to 14 years. Slow down like 68, 82 and 29 to 42. That's the natural cycle of the economy. And then short term, three, four, five year booms in 1 to 2 year, two recessions. We need this. And an economist think they're smarter than God, okay? They think they're smarter than free markets. After we, the Western world, had proven the power of free markets since the late 1700s, especially the marriage of democracy and free market capitalism.
Now, what are we doing? We second guessing free markets. Yeah, I hope the Fed fails here so badly. Nobody ever listens to them when let them run the economy. Their job is not to run the economy and keep it booming as if they would know how to do that anyway. And they don't. They're the ones going to create this bigger crash here when all of this extra debt that we added since 2008 nine has built even higher and we have to wash out even more. So I think we're going to see stocks go down 70 to 90% before this is over in the late mid to late 2024. And when I see that, I'm going to be the most bullish guy on earth like I was in the eighties again, but not until then.
Buck: So the you know, the demographic way of looking at the economy that you're describing, I think you call it the spending wave theory. Is it right?
Harry: Yeah, extremely simple. Yeah.
Buck: You they explain explain that a little bit. A little bit. Again, I know you've sort of talked about it a little bit, but just so listeners kind of have a a sense of the, you know, the way you approach it.
Harry: Yeah. One of the good things about the US is the Bureau of Labor has conduct surveys of consumer every year, depth 600 categories down to hot dogs and potato chips, you know, and housings and starter homes and trade up homes and nursing, you know I mean everything. Yeah. So what I found real quickly when I started studying this data for my new venture clients in the early eighties, Oh my God, this, this is the golden grail here, okay?
Because what it show me is the average person and averages are everything. When you're looking at the macro picture. And as the workforce 20 earns and spends more dramatically as they're raising their kids until they get them through school, through high school to college at 46 on average, and then they spend less the rest of their life and they invest more and then they retire and they die. So spending less is deflationary, and dying is the ultimate deflationary act where things disappear. So so demographics, our destiny. And for the first time, I just happen to be looking at demographics for my own client. When the Bureau of Labor started doing these annual. Yeah, believable data dumps the survey out of the household again down here, when the potato chips beat 42, you know why average kid born at 28 to their parents has the highest calorie intake and junk foods at 1428 for 1442.
So if the economy is that predictable down to potato chips of course is predictable at the market level even more. That's what I discovered in my own business research. And then that's when I became an economist. By the way, I did not get a Ph.D. in economics, thank God. But this year I started I started with a major in economics. By the third quarter, I said, I'm learning a lot in my management, marketing and accounting courses. I'm not learning crap in my economics taught you dissolve theoretical. And so so I became an economist when I discovered this relationship. Oh, it's people. The average person, especially in developed country, are incredibly predictable.
Buck: Yeah. So you would, you would assert that spending wave theory regardless of the short term, you know, changes in whatever panacea that the that the Fed provides that spending wave theory ultimately prevails in the long term. Is that fair?
Harry: Yeah. And real quick now, I'll show you what it would have looked like over the last century. Okay. So so the boom in in 1929, into the crash, into 42, 32 more, but didn't turn around till 42. So that was a long term boom and a bust on the Henry Ford generation 42 to 68 spending wave of the Bob Hope generation, the World War two, Generation Apollo. They peaked in 68 ever after that. Basically recession, recession, recession, 68 to 82 down. So 26 years up 14 years down a generational cycle. So the baby boom cycle largest in history was late 82 to late 2007. And did the economy peak right on late 2007? Because I was telling people what happened in the early to mid eighties, knowing nothing about anything in politics in the future.
Just because all these baby boomers would predict can be spent. Yes. What change is when they caused the greatest downturn since the 1930s in central banks Panic decide, Oh, we don't trust free market capitalism more. We just got to print money and get this thing going. Stupid is single thing ever to happen in history and I hope I live long enough to point that damn finger. This is stupid to think you can run an economy on endless money printing and to think that the economy doesn't need a recession. We've had a recession every decade since I've been born. Yeah, they are necessary, as I said earlier, just as necessary as the booms. They just should last shorter, which they do.
Buck: Let's talk a little bit about what you think specifically of various assets. You've been you know, you've been on the deflation. You know, you've been sending out the warnings about deflation for some time. So are you in still in that in that mindset? And if you look at, say, gold real estate, you know, the markets, obviously in the short term, it looks like you've already said that the real estate markets would be in trouble or I'm sorry, the equity markets would be in trouble. But can you give us some sense of where you think based on the what's going on and you're spending way theory, what happens next?
Harry: Okay. First of all, I'll make a quick comment. Who I want to favor the young people here are the old people like me. They're going to die in the next 1020 years. What do young people want, Lower inflation or lower house prices? All this real estate boom and bubble has just benefited aging baby boomers beyond what they deserve.
Harry: And all this stock bubble, they're the ones that have old investments. Young people are spenders and borrowers. They're not investors until their fifties on okay, so this is also a war between the baby boom, aging baby boom and the rising millennials around the world and the gen everybody past then. Okay, so there the been efficient real estate has to come down the average house people don't really just 20 years ago and inflation has been low since then this 100 grand now it's 400,000 somewhere. Yeah, that's the same stupid old house in Ohio. Okay, this doesn't make sense. How are young people supposed to prosper when they finally get a job and get out of college with all that debt? If they went to college, how are they supposed to prosper when they have to spend that much money just to get their first house? Not a dried up home? That the 800,000 that first home now for 2000. And yeah, maybe their incomes are 60 when their parents used to be 40. But at the minute this is an imbalance. Okay. This is all been because of money printing in this bubble and extending this bubble and nobody wanting a bubble to burst. And of course they shouldn't because bubbles always burst violently and twice as fast as they built.
Typical bubble builds in five years and burst in two and wipes out all those bubble gates. So that's where we're at. We had the first bubble in 2000. We had a mini bubble in 2007, and now they've created a totally artificial the first totally artificial bubble in all of history except for the Mississippi Sea bubble way back. Okay. Because they just pumped up one big company. Okay. But that that's what that's what's wrong here. Governments took over and said we don't like free markets anymore because after this great boom in history, we're going to have to have a big slowdown and a nobody wants to slow down. Well, I'm sorry you don't get the booms without the bust.
So that's my pet peeve. I think economists don't understand anything important about the economy. Nothing fundamental because I'm the one that studies people and I didn't do this. I did this by accident for my home business customers studying their new baby boom customer. That's how I got onto this. Accidental economists. I call myself didn't plan to be an economist because, I mean, how many economists can even get a girlfriend? But it wasn't my goal to be an economist. Yeah, but, but when you see it, it is simple and it's the average numbers enter the workforce. 20 inflation occurs until you enter the workforce because you cost the economy and don't contribute 20 to 46. You contribute the most in your lifetime and then you slow down and then you invest the most at an exact number, 63.
So our workforce 20 spend the most, 46 now going on 47 and and invest the most money, have the biggest investment before you retire at 63. And people don't retire an average of 65 by the way. But it's 63 if you do the research. Yeah. So that's all I do. Look at people. People are predictable in math, not individually. And people drive our economy and now governments are trying to play Monday night quarterback and screwing it all up. We could have been had a deeper recession. It would have lasted from 2008 through 2000 mid 2010, like 1929, 30. We get a flush most this debt out zombie companies and we could be ready to boom again with these millennials.
And the truth is we're not going to be able to boom unless we let the economy do what it needs to do. Get rid of record levels of bad debts. Zombie zombie companies are record levels, debts at all levels. Government and consumer are at record levels and ratios. You have to flush this out. In history, we've always done it and that's how the next boom happens. Better. Jim Demographic trends. After they slow and you flush out the inefficiencies and become efficient again, both those things have to happen to have a healthy boom again and now all we're going to have is the Millennials ready to spend a year from now for the next 13, 14 years, much shorter generation trend in the US, by the way, not so much in Asia and all but and and we're going to be hampered by oh well we weren't willing to get rid of all this debt and bad companies. So we're dragging these things behind us a big weight on the economy.
Buck: So when you when you look at the sort of as a forecast and if you were advising a client or something like that, you would have mentioned now a couple of times that maybe towards the end of 2024, you'd have this period of millennial spending for 13, 14 years. So is do you believe, despite any sort of despite what the Fed's doing, what it despite, you know, economic the forces that are intervening in these types of natural history of the economy, do you anticipate that this will be another boom then even despite all the artificial debt leverage, all those things that you're talking about, Or do you think it'll be hampered and unable to actually, you know, come to fruition as predicted?
Harry: It'll be both. There's no good this millennial generation will be enough of a force like the baby boom. Was it just not as long and not as strong. But it is still. We have the best millennial generation in the developed world. That's the US. Europe doesn't have this. Okay. Yeah. Japan peaked before us and doesn't have it. Korea doesn't have a China. Actually, their demographics are peaking right now and fall for as long as the eye can see. Okay, So so we will this this force will be a positive for the economy regardless. It won't be nearly as positive if these millennials and they already hate the baby boomers to this. We already took all their jobs. We already did all this stuff.
We created all this debt, We created all these bubbles. They know that, okay, we were the dominant generation and we got our way, you know, and we changed a lot of things for the good, but we brought we were the only generations that brought central banks that just say, well, the best way to grow is just print money. Stupidest idea in history. But that came with baby boomers. Okay, I hate to say it, a baby boom. Federal Reserve Chairman, I. They got it. So. So you'll have it anyway. But it will be compromised, no question about it. And I'll tell you another thing. Even if we clear out this stuff in the next few years, what I think is going to happen anyway, okay, I think the economy is going to win here because it's bigger.
This boom, the baby boom did happen. I have a 90 year cycle, a super bubble cycle, I call it. It's two technology cycles. And the technology cycles are 45 years. I'm telling like a clock on this one versus the generation at 39 to 40. Okay, So we're in a super bubble cycle that peaked around 20 1920. Now we've extended all this stuff. So it's not totally unnatural that we have this bubble here and then extends past the demographic cycles because the demographic cycle may be the most important, but it's not the only major cycle. But if we don't clear this stuff out, we're taking bad debts. That's why the economy that did that, George Childers, my favorite economist, and I've spoken with him a lot in recent years on the same stated this thing he says the secret to capitalism is failure.
Yeah we allow failure. Central governments and and bureaucratic governments around the world. They try to manage their economies and don't allow billion. That's what our government they're not allowing failure. You have to let a thousand lights bloom and then you have to weed out the failures. There's always going to be failures when there's growth and new technologies and new generations and growth, there's going to be failures. The secret of capitalism is we flush it out as we're going. It's not kept enforced by a top down government. It's a bottoms up, dynamic system. That was the genius of democracy means free market capitalism. Okay. And we're in we're doing everything against that. We we don't understand why we've gotten so affluent in the last 120 years with those two those two factors.
And now we're doing everything to fight that just to stave off a short term damn downturn. Get over it. Take your licks and let's move on. If we don't, it will be gone. But yes, we will have more positive fundamental trends. Even with all this debt, we'll just have to drag it on our backs and it'll slow us down like we're walking uphill with £100 on our back.
Buck: You know, when you speak about the demographics and how that's driving driving the economy, I guess the other question for for you is that you know, obviously you have a big millennial generation about to spend, but the additional force there that maybe we haven't seen quite as much of is that you've got a lot of baby boomers that are aging. And so by the 2013, I mean, you're going to have a significant burden, whether you know, through Medicare and also, yeah, it's affecting the equity market. So so again, it's it's hard to imagine the economy really flourishing.
Harry: Well, I'll give you a number on that one, too, because I actually did the calculations on that burden. 2029 okay. That's just several years. And now will be the time when that baby boomer retirement entitlements burden is at its peak compared to the millennials growth curve and all that stuff. So so that's I mean so yes, that is already a headwind.
So in addition to that natural headwind, we've never had a smaller generation to follow a larger one. So that is that is an important headwind. But on top of that, we say, well, we're not going to clear out our debts from the baby boomer generation, this greatest boom in history, and we carry that weight with us, then, yes, we could we could have the most disappointing, muted generational boom. In fact, we will have the most muted boom in history. And even with clearing out everything, if they do everything I wish to happen in the next few years and we clear out all this debt and stuff, even with that, their boom will not happen in this bubble 90 year cycle. And so the stocks in real estate, I don't think either them in the US will see the peaks we've seen recently for the rest of our lifetimes and most of the millennials.
Not so now we can still have a huge boom if we went down to 3 to 5000, you know, I on, on, on, on the Nasdaq and it went up, you know, oh, you know, even back to the levels, the peaks we had so we can still have a great boom. But but this boom on no level, even in its natural forces, nothing will match what we saw from 1983 to 2007 when the greatest demographic force and it was globally in the developed countries, but it was dominated by the US, we will not see a boom like this again.
Buck: So if you're so, you know, certainly not asking you for investment advice or anything like that, but curious what your take is on, you know, the performance of assets where people should look at potentially to deploy capital over the next year or two. You know, I know for some time you're fairly down on gold and, you know, real estate and that kind of thing. But certainly where we are, there's a lot of real estate investors here and probably curious on your take on real estate in particular.
Harry: Okay. Yeah, perfect question to sum up here. I mean, okay. So so stocks definitely go down and of course, the more leverage the Nasdaq will go down more in the S&P and the Russell then more than the S&P that S&P is becoming per say. But they're all going to go down. I mean, 80% are more and more okay if this thing really fleshes out real estate.
Second real estate bubble looks exactly like the first one. Started it higher levels and went to higher level real estate. This time to go back down to fair value as we go down 50% instead of 34% last time. That's going to be the biggest hit most people get. So what do you and stocks go down 70 to 90% like in the early thirties, not normal, 40 to 50%. Major shakeout. So the key is there is nowhere to hide here. Investors have to get out of the way. If you have a main home and you're going to stay in it and you have a vacation home, sell the vacation home, or it's a vacation home where you're looking at retiring, sell the main home now and then move and go ahead and retire in that vacation, but minimize your real estate exposure.
And people ask me, Oh, Harry, I got this, this, this one, one house with a high debt and the other one with equity. I should sell the one with high debt. No, sell the one with the equity. Get all your money out. The one with the high debt may end up having the bank take a lot of that. Hit it because the banks are going to have to restructure debt at some point and they're the ones that went too much money. So so you have to think about it. So get lean and real estate, I mean, as soon as you can, because real estate tournament, you just have to be out of stocks. There is no. Oh defensive sectors might go down 50% that 80 I don't care.
I don't want to be there. Where do you be? And this is what's proven, not gold. Gold did the same thing. It's do it this time. It edged up in the early stages of the last recession than the early 2008 and then crashed 45 50% right into the bottom of that gold went down the and gold was not the worst place to be did well early on goals done and here I expect gold to go to a thousand give or take for it's over and then it'll be a great long term investment because the future is Asia and Asians particularly Indians. The biggest Asian factor going forward, not China. Then they love gold. Okay, so gold is going to be 3 to $5 in one day, but not because of a crash thing. It is not the safe haven wasn't in 2008. So stocks down, gold down, real estate down. Multifamily is the most stable real estate. Okay. Where do people go when they can't afford to buy or when the banks climb up?
But then they have to rent and then. And then there's people winning anyway. So. So is multifamily. If I have to own real estate, I want I want to own multifamily. I'd rather be out of everything if I could. Okay. So but multifamily will hold up the best and people more people will be driven to them out of despair. Okay, so you're like you're like the Treasury bond. You're like the safe haven in real estate, right? Okay So. So and and the ultimate, though, and this is proven, I have to argue with people like Peter Schiff all the time, and it should not be an argument. 2008 Gold crashed in the end and the Treasury bonds went straight up in reverse.
And when the things got, there were some mid to late 2008. Towards that bottom, the Treasury bonds were the safe haven. The longer the better. 30 year went up 60%, ten year went up 34 40%. I'm projecting some of these Treasury bonds and ETFs like 000 TLT can go up 40, 50, 60, 70% in this crisis. And here's the bad part There's no diversification in the downturn. All financial assets bubbled up with easy money. In all these policies, they will all go down. The only safe haven are the triple-A corporates, and even more so. And I don't even want to bother with the triple-A corporate, the 30 year Treasuries. The best single thing you can buy, or again, 00z is a 25 year average between ten and 30 TLT is 20 year average.
You know, the zeros will go up 50% faster than TLT in a crisis already proven in recent time. So I'm telling people, hey, you could be in cash if you really can do the best thing, be in the safest bonds in the world, longest term U.S. treasuries just for the crash. People say, well, here you look well, what about down the road? I'm not seeing much. The next boom, you need to be back in stocks and you need to lean back towards tech in the U.S. and in Southeast Asia and India, where the growth is going to be not not even China so much. So that's the future. But now there's only one thing to do. The preserve your money and the only way to grow it safely in a crisis is these long term Treasury bonds.
They are the safe haven. If you don't believe it, look at what they did in 2008. Only thing they go up when even gold went down and gold was the second best because at least it held up after the way through like it is now. I'm expecting gold to go down.
Buck: Yeah. Harry, it's been great talking with you. Connecting. And I definitely would love to get you back on as we continue this odyssey of the weird economy that worries.
Over the real play bug. I mean look for more information Yeah Harry Dent dot com. Yeah very simple. We have a free newsletter. I and my partner write a weekly article so keep up with just what we're thinking and then we have a paid newsletter. Once people get the best. I'm telling people not only better job for sure, but at least get on a free newsletter. HarryDent.com All you do is put in your name and your email and you're on our free newsletter. At least you can hear. I mean, because I've already had to change my tell me this stimulus thing is so back and forth. This is I think stocks are going a lot lower and sooner than later and real estate on a lag. But how it happens is going to continue to be a bit of a puzzle depending on how these central banks react. And now I think they are in trouble because they finally overdid it and now they're forced to tighten or at least be neutral and tightening or neutral. If you get tightening or neutral, we're going to see this downturn again.
Buck: This is HarryDent.com make sure you sign up for that newsletter. And Harry, it is great to talk to you and we'll be in touch I'm sure in the in the coming years and. Hopefully you're wrong. People should hope that I'm right are long term particularly young people in our long term health of our economy. We need this. I'm not a doomsday or I've been bullish 90% of my career. In fact, I got most criticized in the eighties for being too bullish, especially on America, so that I am not Barrett. But there is a time to be bearish.
Harry: And this is yeah, if you can find it, anybody can find bigger or more bubbles than this. Any time in history come to me and I'll hire.
Buck: Yeah. Fantastic. Thanks again, Harry. We'll be right back.

2023.03.27 17:50 hullabaloolife i'm in it for the money literally nothing else, what should i study?
Hello Reddit. This is my first post on here ever. I've seen miracles happen through reddit and figured well maybe i could try my luck here because i am nothing but desperate at this point in my life. I, (23F), am looking for career advice and I live in Florida. I am not sure where or when everything in my life went to shit but it did. In school i was always ahead of everyone. I started school early at 4 and I early admitted in high school almost having a full associate's by graduation. I worked at an ice cream store at 16 where within a year, I became manager. I did great there and liked it because I made fresh product daily and got to be creative and make customers happy. I left there to work for a major retailer for the next 2.5 years because they were paying me more and as I was in college at that point i needed more money to pay for my tuition and stuff than i was making at a small business. I had just about graduated from my 4 year degree, when I left my job there to work for a different corporation as a sales floor team member. I was making less money there originally but it was worth it to me because I was no longer being overworked and stressed out to death about workload like i was at my second job. I stuck it out at this other job and I ended up falling in complete love with it. I fell in love with all the programs we offered our customers and with being able to help people every day. I ended there at 17 dollars an hour and I left to pursue a better paying job I got due to a pure random interaction with that company's CEO. This new career i am currently working in deals with home improvement and is commission based. When I was brought onto the field by the CEO, I was told what I now know to be completely inflated numbers that are so unrealistic of literally reality. No one makes what I was told all their sales people make. I feel entirely lied to about pay as well as the job itself because there was a lot I wasn't told such as that payment for a hob I close doesn't happen for sometimes an entire 12-16 weeks. as in 3-4 months before I see money I earned today. It wasn't disclosed to me. So here I am about to quit this job because for one, it makes no money and for two I don't want to work somewhere where they blatantly lie so much to get people to come here. I Have a degree in sociology and minor in criminal studies. I have been looking for a job for no joke 13 months now. I have tried applying to every field i could think of. Literally everything also I am on every job site, linkedin, indeed, glassdoor, dice, ziprecruiter, etc. Literally check all of them every single day. I've even tried working at university jobs too but they literally don't hire anyone. I even tried getting an alternate certification in insurance claims adjusting but plot twist. that didn't work EITHER LOL. no one hires anyone without experience. Fuckin stupid but whatever.
I need 1 of 2 things from you all reading this please.
1) I need recommendations of what I could do with sociology. Not social work. Not teaching. Not something that requires further education like a master's. Not human resources because in case y'all didn't know, without previous experience or a literal degree in human resources, no one will hire you to hire people. I need it to be attainable with my current qualifications.
2) I want to go back to school but only if it makes sense for job placement after graduation. I can do either a masters or a second bachelor's, I don't care about the time it takes, if it proves to be worth it after graduation. I am not good at science and thus can't be a doctor, or nurse. All the colleges near me are really hard to get into their alternative certifications like radiography or sonography type stuff so that option is literally out the window. I am not great at math so think something doable not freaking engineering because there is just no way on earth my brain could ever grasp those complex concepts. I don't wanna do something that I would be responsible for someone's life like life or death type jobs. I can't do law school because too long and too expensive. I have considered fields like city/urban planning and maybe I could do that ?? what else should I look for?
Job criteria I am searching for that would make a job worthwhile:
1) starting pay at least 45,000/yr + room to grow up to 100,000 yr whether its through that employer or job hopping once I get experience. I am not above working hard and grinding to get to the top. I just won't work for years to then find out all that effort was just as worthless as let's say a teacher's salary.
2). I could be creative or make people happy. I could take joy from something in it other than pay and it wouldn't suck my soul out of me. so no insurance sales either.
Thank you for anyone that has read this far and I hope that someone is able to help me. Also if you've got any social connections or straight up wanna give me a job that works with any of this I am totally not above milking the system and jumping the line of deserving applicants. I am grateful for any advice at all. Please help me please and thank you!

2023.03.27 17:48 Unexpected_Geese Some notes about the nature/vibes of the fears. Very informal/ bad, but there's some fun bits!
- General: yeah it’s pretty much the opposite of the Vast. It lives where you live, forever and always– not even death will grant you the mercy of an escape. Guilt that lives in your chest, the burden society forces you to carry, the everpresent pressure of poverty, etc.-- it’s scary because it never leaves you.
- Guilt. A ghost that never leaves you, a weight that sits in your chest like a stone.
- Corporate hellscapes! The impossible pressure of your day-to-day life, so heavy you can barely move. Call me Atlas the way I carry this whole project on my back <3
- Suffocation. No air, no sky, not freedom, no friends. Like the violent version of the Lonely
- I just know sensory overload goes here bbygirl <3 don’t ask questions <3
- Controlling relationships. You might think that’s a corruption thing, and it is! But there’s a specific type of it that goes here.
- General: The Corruption is objectively the sexiest fear. You can’t deny it. Like… the fine line between love and worms? YES.
- General two: The corruption is like if the Flesh was the Spiral. By nature, it’s very slow– but, unlike the Spiral, you NEVER get the luxury of ignorance. You know that bitches B lurking every second. Not always where they are, though, which sucks. It’s slow and inevitable, and sososososo visceral.
- Loss of home and relationships– not of the things themselves, but of the safety they gave you. A home that succumbs to the rot, that demands more and more and more. A love that wants to burrow, which is nice until the burrowing becomes literal. A slow loss, the kind with no clear line between that and this.
- Bugs where? A sickness that lives in the walls, under the earth, under your skin if you let it. Never seen, but always heard. Sometimes an internal thing (plague village maypole statement)
- Egh ugh bugs on me
- Watching the homies succumb to the Illnesses like <3
- The inevitable rot. Slow and very, very noticeable. Like a plague sort of < 3
- Corruption, Flesh, and Stranger avatars should make out <3
- General: God I fucking hate the Dark. It’s so BORING! It’s just the fear of the unknown, with literally no twist to it. You’ve got all the basic bitch fears: lack of safety, a thing you can’t see, etc. etc. Nobody likes the Dark. It’s like saying your favorite TV shows are Friends and The Office.
- You do not know <3 You are not aware <3
- The dark of blindness; the senses you use to find your way suddenly stolen from you.
- The dark of hey was that a noise: not knowing what’s out there is so much worse.
- General: Loss. Straight-on. Something being there, and then not. Something never being there again.
- The unfeeling, unstoppable nature of loss. You can’t bargain with it, or fight it, or trick it– it just happens. On a whim, because it wants to.
- Pain. Pain bad <3
- The panic of not knowing when it will stop. How much will burn– the roof, the house, the family? What can be salvaged? Will it come back?
- General: It’s Death. Not the dying, not the corpse that comes after. Just death. The concept of it, that unstoppable march of time. Not you losing the world, but the world losing you. Makes out with the Vast’s aspects of insignificance on a daily basis. Lives somewhere to close to escape, but too far away to fight.
- Knowing what’s coming. Knowing that even if you escape this one thing, it will wait for you still; in every shadow, every street crossing and morning commute, every beat of your heart.
- Death 2: 2 Death 2 Dying. Lingering, even after. Being denied that final escape.
- General: You know, you’d think that the Extinction would be like the Corruption two, but it’s actually a lot closer to the Desolation? It’s the loss of familiarity, the new and horrible thing that grows in its place.
- A body doesn’t just disappear: it decays. Bloats and swells, stains the air sweet with flies. The corpse of a dead earth, starting to bloat. The horrible rot that will follow the End.
- New monsters, rising from the ashes. An eternal reminder of our end, a last haunting howl before all life is snuffed out.
- A slow, choking death that you see coming a mile away; the sky suffocated by smoke, the earth poisoned with plastic. The familiar, slowly rotting.
- “The world is always ending”-- a death that you don’t even notice until it’s far, far too late.
- General: The Eye is almost never something you see in person, and it rarely manifests as anything physical. It sticks firmly in the realm of feelings and ✨vibes ✨.
- Social: a highschooler’s worst nightmare. Everyone/ One rich old white man is looking at you, and they all know you’re cringe. Includes blackmail. Elias moment fr fr
- We live in a society: the pervasiveness of the surveillance state. You’re constantly being watched, and you can’t escape it.
- Scrutiny: Getting molecularly dissected and mined for Trauma. The hungry and insistent gaze of that one guy who keeps asking weirdly personal questions. Reliving your trauma for a private audience. No points for guessing who uses this one
- General: In the running for America’s top dread power. It’s sooo physical girlie <3. The Flesh lives in the physical. The bully shoving you in lockers, the weight-loss billboards on the side of the road, the slow crawl of the abattoir conveyor belts. Inevitable, in the sense that you can’t do shit about it. It’s about the imminent mutilation.
- Mutilation. The agonizing loss of what makes you you, bit by bit. Life broken down into viscera.
- Body image issues!! Not the issues themselves, but the agonizing and impossible task of molding yourself into the ‘ideal human form’. It will never be enough, girliepop <3
- Dehumanization. Being broken down into only your useful bits; the faceless slog of bureaucracy. Being consumed, butchered, etc.
- The inevitability of the conveyor belt.
- General: where the Slaughter is cold and calculated, the Hunt runs on sheer malice. The cruelty of a high school bully, of a crooked cop, of some guy who hunts for shits and giggles.
- RUN THE FUCK AWAY
- Agh ough oof they are chasing me. Hey could you. Stop that maybe?
- Police brutality pog
- Not the purposeful drive of hunting for food, but the malice of the modern trophy-hunter. Someone who hunts just because they like the chase.
- The volatility of a hunter who might turn on you at any moment, should you smell like fear. Weird toxic friend groups.
- Highschool bullying. Just.. all of it.
- The way the hunt makes you not just powerless, but weak. Feels shitty, man
- General: The Slaughter lives in the individual. In every individual. It’s not the war, but your role in the war. The knowledge that, at any moment, those around you could get a taste for blood. The knowledge that you could do the same. It’s cold, it’s calculating– a war waged by the faceless, and you’re their weapon of choice.
- The unpredictability of sudden violence. At any time or place, you could get your shit rocked.
- The shame of it– both from participating and not. How could you let yourself be swept away so easily? How could you refuse to die for your country?
- Dehumanization again, but different; This time, it’s about only being what you can do. An unfeeling instrument of carnage, a dancer on the endless battlefield.
- General: They’ve got their avatars, yes– But the Spiral’s real specialty is in warping the environment. The inverse of the stranger, in basically every way. Where the Stranger is abrupt, the Spiral goes slowly; Where the Stranger calls other people’s eyes into question, the Spiral makes you doubt your own.
- Wow haha I can feel myself slowly losing control of this rollercoaster ride
- A sense of disorientation, with no stable ground to stand on; can I trust this person? Is this real? Is it safe?
- Things getting twisty <3 loss of identity, in that it’s distorted into a new, cooler identity < 3
- Lovecraft lives here
- Not the fear of the unknown, but the fear of the incomprehensible, the unstable; a world so twisted and loose that pinning down a who or what is like trying to grab water
- General: Tends to manifest itself as people, not places– though I’m sure there’s exceptions to that! The Stranger commits to the almost-knowing vibes of the Uncanny Valley effect, blending the fear of the unknown with the fear of the very much known.
- The mutilating loss of what you once called home; Not a change, but a sudden realization that the face you once knew is a mask
- Getting gaslight: Not by the monster, but by everyone else, who apparently can’t see for shit.
- You know something’s there, but you don’t know what.
- A very sudden and abrupt loss: one moment, a friend! The other, a monster.
- General: The thing about the Vast is that, like, it’s. It’s sooooo much. It’s about the way the world peels back to reveal this aching infinity, that was always there but you never noticed. It’s an environmental thing, but it’s not any specific environment– it’s every environment. You tend to find it in pocket dimensions, and then take that truth back with you.
- A nothingness that stretches for infinity. No ground to stand on, no air to breathe; that dizzying, agonizing fall.
- An everything that stretches for infinity. What are you, in the face of all this vastness? Nothing lol.
- An entity beyond your comprehension. The knowledge that it could end all that you know at any time, and there would be nothing you could do to stop it. Something so vast it would never even notice you.
- General: The Web’s kind of a two stage fear. They start with, like, so many mind games, (Where’s the spider? What’s it doing? Is there a spider?) and commit to the fear of the unknown so hard they make the Dark look like a bunch of obvious fools. Then, WHAM! They reveal that you’ve been trapped completely and utterly since before you were even born, and make you look like a damn chump. The trick is that you only know what you’re supposed to be doing after you haven’t done it.
- Inescapable system being mean 2 me : (
- Strings you can absolutely 100% see. To be trapped in your role so utterly that they’re not even trying to hide it any more. A complete lack of options. Sorry girliepop < 3
- The specific cycle of self-hatred, ‘help’ from others, and constant backslides that you get with addictions and also poorly managed ADHD/Autism/Depression/mental illness. You know it if you’ve experienced it. The utter lack of autonomy, the ‘just get through today’ grindset, the intense self-blame, the awareness that you’re struggling but with no sense of how to stop.
- Hey. Hey. Where’d that spider go. Where the FUCK did it go–
- Your ass is getting manipulated sooo hard. Lol idiot victim, just don’t fall for it!

, and then. Idk? Do something with it. I'm just linking the chart for context-- I posted this as context for the chart.

2023.03.27 17:46 smokedpebble Follow up post - what would you do or how far would you take it
after several emails to agency IG and no response, I sent a detailed email (same info entered on agency IG form) and said I may contact my elected officials.
within 10 mins, i get an email. blah blah blah. same info they sent back in early NOV last year:
high ops temp, understaffed, we'll get to it when get to it, you are more than welcome to contact you elected officials.
so I did - both in my current home state and state where issue occurred. both reps offices called back, took details and now it's been 3 weeks and 2 weeks respectively. not a peep.
I did email two journalists with the local paper where this all occurred. nothing.
I have a few more actions I could take - contact reps in other states that have shown a true dislike of my former agency, send a letter to the editor at local paper, etc
Why do I keep pushing it? Because this is an example, albeit small, of every dysfunctional thing wrong with Fed service:
EEO issues, T&A fraud, JTR fraud, etc and no one is held to account.
There is something broken in the Fed system when supervisors and senior management avoid and/or fear following through on personnel issues. It fosters bad morale and breeds complacency.

2023.03.27 17:46 Mowgli2k Showing some love for the Logitech G Cloud
Noting that the Reddit hive mind does not hold a good opinion on this device, I wanted to give the Logitech G Cloud a shout out. Yes I appreciate that it's not the cheapest device in the world, but putting that aside, it has a lot going for it.
I have a love of handhelds, owning many popular ones including steam deck, 353v, miyoo mini, Vita etc.
I also have a powerful gaming PC and do most of my gaming at home. I've been doing more and more local streaming, via my steam deck. However, this was getting frustrating with the weight and bulk, as well as the 800p screen being deeply average.
Bit the bullet and got hold of a G cloud about a month ago and have been in love from day 1. The controls feel good, the weight is far less that the deck, has an amazing battery life and most of all, an absolutely fantastic screen. It's been my daily driver since I got it.
For emulation, it's much better than people give it credit for. Obviously all the 8 and 16 bit systems are fine but higher up, I'm running PPPSSPP, 4x at 60fps. PS2 runs on it as well for quite a few games, I've been playing Dragon Quest VIII, Gran Turismo 3 and Simpsons Hit and Run all perfectly well when out of the house.
So to sum up - yeah it's not much cheaper than a deck, and it's not as powerful as an Odin Pro, but the combination of that gorgeous big screen, better emulation than credited and a lightweight, comfortable build adds up to a device that should definitely be considered.

2023.03.27 17:45 peterfromIT Need some Advice on my First HomeServer
| || | submitted by peterfromIT to HomeServer [link] [comments]
Hello, fellow reditors,
Well after years of badgering my wife that we need a decent storage solution for our home I finally have the green light to acquire our home server. Browsing my local listings I compiled some options i found, but only the first 3 I consider financialy viable, I was hopping for your advice on the server and some questions:
For now, the services that the server will be running will be:
- Plex Media Server
- Torrent Managing DL/UP
Please keep in mind that I will still need to buy the HDDs since I don't trust the provided disks and will probably go for standard SATA HDDs with maybe one or two SSDs for cache for the array, however, storage may be an issue since I will need to have well over 8TB of space to be comfortable. In my current setup, I have 4 TB of Plex Content, and my Wife also has another 4 TB of photo material. (Single HDDs with no redundancy) So the total Storage space has to be well over that. I know that most of the server options are 8-bay with 2.5 drives but as you can see a 16-Bay servers goes over what I was looking to spend (Also considering the HDDs I still need to get). So let's consider I go with 6x 2.5 inch 2TB drives, according to ZFS Calculator with a single parity I will only have 10TB of Storage which is not a lot more than I currently need. should i just drop the SSDs? Or should i just forget all the servers and try and find a cheaper 3.5 inch solution?
As for the servers mentioned I'm most inclined to the DELL R620 since it has good Specs for the price, but these DELL are a pain when it comes to GPUs. Will I be missing out on not having a GPU on the system? Most of my Plex content will be local but some transcoding may still happen due to Subtitles on some files.
Regarding OS I have been reading and there seem to be a lot of good things said about running Proxmox on Bare Metal and then Virtualize a TrueNAS Scale VM. Is this the best course of option? Or since my needs are very storage based I should just skip Proxmox and just install TrueNAS Scale on Bare Metal?
Thank you for reading this far please let me know if you need any further information.

2023.03.27 17:42 Joe_Dot_Com Questions for the Pro Network Install guy
| || |
TL:DR.. need advice and have questions about upgrading my home's networking system to a future proof set up with an ass [NAS]. submitted by Joe_Dot_Com to HomeNetworking [link] [comments]
I have an appointment later this week for a network installation company to come out and assess what's going on at the house with what is currently set up. I want to be prepared and have my questions lined out for this guy so that I can be somewhat knowledgeable and know what I'm asking for and what I'm talking about.
What would be great is to have a future proof home network when I'm all done. Whether that is cat5e, or cat6, or cat8. I'd like to have one to two access points per room, for hooking up televisions or computers.
I have a latest and greatest multi gig Netgear modem (supporting up to 2.5 GB), and a Netgear nighthawk 6G router with a 2.5 GB port.
Somewhere in there I'd like to set up an NAS from which anyone at any of the access points could stream a movie or TV show or connect for gaming.
And I'm also trying to figure out the pros and cons of power over ethernet PoE, and if that's something that has to be set up with an electrician to supply the power to the network.
Are there special guidelines for cabling a house with power over ethernet? Is there a certain rated cable that can handle power like that? Does there need to be conduit that the cables run through through the house? From what I've read so far, PoE is the way to go in the future I want to add security cameras, etc.
Also, somewhere I want to set up my router in a central point from an access point in order to provide good Wi-Fi coverage throughout the house (approx 3750 sq'.).
I'm quite capable of doing a lot of the things myself, and I'm also sure that there's a good chunk of the work that should be done by an electrician or someone trained to do these things. Of course I'm figuring whatever labor I can do myself would save me enough money that it would allow me to upgrade to a higher quality of ethernet cable (i.e. Cat8).
I'm aware that using Cat8 could be a little bit of overkill, but I'm willing to spend an extra $500 to $1,000 for the better future-proofing.
Some thoughts and questions:
The initial line coming in from the network interface device is what, cat 3? I would like to make sure that there's no daisy chaining going on anywhere in the network.
From there, I guess the line coming into the house would ideally be hooked up to a switch? And from there would I run a Cat5-Cat8 Ethernet cable to the modem?
Currently the modem sets in the main level office. The wall panel for connections is in the wall of the upstairs closet from the bedroom.
With the initial line go from the NID to the panel upstairs, then a line to the modem in the office downstairs? And then a line from the modem back up to the panel upstairs which would hook into a 16-port switch, from which ethernet cables could be run to all the outlets through the house?
If you all have any answers to these things, please share. Also if there's any questions I'm not asking, what questions do I need to be also asking?
