2021.10.19 04:35 kwisatzcraperach Making friends with the "eleveners"
I found this subreddit tonight and am enjoying reading the stories so wanted to share my own.
I've always been intrigued by stories of crow intelligence and the occasional gifting of some shiny object to a friendly human. I don't know why now, but a couple of weeks ago I saw a post in popular from someone showing off a gift from his/her local crows and decided its time to try to make friends with the neighborhood murder.
I don't get too many crows in my yard as I'm pretty good with keeping the insects and grubs at a minimum, but three or four houses down the street I noticed the crows would visit and peck around looking for something to eat. Occasionally one or two would land in my yard but never stay long.
I did some quick reading on their likes and decided to tempt them with cashews and almonds which I happened to have on hand. Thinking they like shiny things, I put the nuts in a shiny chrome tray from my workshop then made a show of placing the tray on top of my brick mailbox.
That first day I didn't actually see them eating but the tray emptied out three times. I believe it was the presence of a new shiny object easily seen in their flight path that caught their attention so quickly.
On the second day, I spotted them in action from my window. Three beautiful black crows hanging out in the trees and doing flybys to make sure it was safe before landing on top of the mailbox and munching down.
At least twice I've seen one of them try to pick up the shiny tray and fly away with it, but it's too heavy for them and just ends up falling off of the mailbox into the grass. Kind of reinforces that they really do like shiny objects.
I've been doing this a week and a half now, and on the fourth day I went to check the tray and found it empty except for a golf-ball size acorn in the tray that one of them must have left there. I guess technically, maybe that's my first "gift", but I'm thinking perhaps it was just dropped in favor of the yummier peanuts/cashews that were on offer.
I've made a point of letting them see me re-fill the tray, and I even drop the nuts in there in a way that makes a tinging sound that I hope attracts their attention. So far they haven't eaten while I've been outside, I have to retreat inside the house. I'm just giving it a little more time to establish the routine before I start pressing.
They seem to show up before noon each day, sometime around 10:30 or 11am so I've dubbed this little group the "eleveners."

2021.10.19 04:35 LexMultiplex Drug testing tomorrow - still positive for THC
Didn’t know I would be getting a new job so soon. I completely quit using edibles (and everything else) about 35 days ago. I had about a month long period where I would consume about 100mg delta 9 or delta 8 gummies (less than .3 percent) about 3 times per week.
I’m still testing positive. I completed the background check and it sent me an automated message saying I have 24hrs to complete the drug screen.
Any tips for a dumbass?

2021.10.19 04:35 marlodancer Biographies/autobiographies/memoirs that explore the connection between creativity/artistry and mental illness.
I’m really interested in the cultural myth of the “struggling artist” and how our society romanticizes a lack of well-being as almost a prerequisite for create good art. I am interested in more nuanced accounts of artists’/writers’/etc.s’ lives that demonstrate how they created in spite of their struggles rather than their lack of well-being being the reason for their genius. I just finished “Red Comet,” a new biography about Sylvia Plath. I am particularly interested in writers, poets, painters, sculptors, dancers, and musicians. Thank you!!!!!

2021.10.19 04:35 zeppelinrules1216 Heavy metal toxins ?
My symptoms are identical to most of the people on this group, this all started after catching HSV 1 for me.
The virus got inside my liver, gallbladder, pancreas and brain. The first four months were absolute hell, I thought I was going to die multiple times. I have never been sicker in my entire life.
It took about two years to stabilize, I’ve never returned to normal though. The virus flares up with stress, hormonal fluctuations, seasonal change, exposure to EMF and RF, certain foods etc
I’m curious how many people here have obvious exposure to heavy metal toxins? Silver amalgam fillings in your teeth? Cigarette smoker ? Any other source?
Trying to put together the variables that makes one person catch a virus and have a very bad reaction and another has minimal effects.
Heavy-metal toxins mess up the hormones and the nervous system which lets viruses proliferate.
I believe the primary area of concern for all of us is the liver and gallbladder.

2021.10.19 04:35 goodnewsjimdotcom 10 of Starfighter General's techs
Starfighter General has been live for over a year. It is clash of clans meets Xwing vs Tiefighter. Only a few people play it, but at least one is a die hard raving fan who's awesome. But it isn't what it is now that is impressive. It is the action MMORPG to come:
1) Multicore: As we said before, one of the first of the future games to unlock all cores: 10x-1000x peformance.
2) Networking that brakes all the rules. People legit don't believe me, but I had it working in 2004, but needed to be direct ip played without routers.
3) Custom Awesome RPG Based on my old PNP RPG that everyone who played it liked it better than D&D by a bit.
4) First MMO designed for late game. I talk with RIOT employees. They agreed they are gonna design for late game first also with their upcoming one after I told em about this. No sense in wasting a player's time grinding if you don't give them an awe inspiring end game.
5) Easter eggs... Literally/Virtually You find em, hide em anywhere in the universe. Each will give different daily reward as you log on... Better rewards the longer they are hidden. If someone sees it, they can grab it and get a up front reward right there, but it resets your daily. Pick good places to hide!
6) Space dungeons - Competitive zones with different rule sets, rewards winner... Once every 30 min - 1 hr, a zone is super charged with rewards, but you need to find clues to find it.
7) Resource trading like elite. Player vs player trading, no bind one equip, nothing off table unless abuses start happening. Frankly I don't care if you buy stuff offline either. Please sell on ebay and get bitcoin rich playing my game. I'm not so greedy for microtransactions like corps to restrict you from that. The security I have 2 factor auth before major trades or character deletions etc, you can manage it too.
8) PVP bounty system. Everyone can PVP at all times even if you have peace flag. Stakes are low if your ship explodes. If you get attacked without declaring aggressive mode or an opponent to duel, the aggressor gets a bounty on their head in accordance with the damage dealt to you. If this bounty gets high enough, and they get caught, they will be put in jail. When they log on for the next few hours or days, their character can play only in jail, and visitors come see him and such. Global chat disabled.**
9) Grand Space Opera-> 4x emperors around you trying to conquer the galaxy like Master of Orion on a 500 billionish system scale! They ain’t even players at first, just NPCs waging war. Who’s side will you choose? Will it be based on morality or space bucks? Ok Han Solo, what it will be? Do it for the money, until you realize money doesn’t mean anything living under a totalitarian empire.
10) live game masters & be in an anime in about 6-12 months after the content updates roll through. We bias people with Founder’s RP tokens some and good manner role players who stay in character(we have chat logs and even game logs). This promotes good role play even when not live GMing. Who doesn’t want to bring their friends to a movie and surprise em with their own character in the movie? So stay in character for a better game! No video game in the history of mankind do I know that let your character be in a movie.
Is Game Master driven movie making the future? Anyone who's RPGed know the scripts are funny and entertaining like no other. Be a part of the future and a apocolypic cyperpunk moviestar. Play Starfighter General: www.starfightergeneral.com

2021.10.19 04:35 sabrinam98 How would you guys answer this question?
So, my sister saw a post on Instagram and asked me would I rather have a house filled with Ghost or Roaches? And I said Ghost bc I’m covered by the blood of Jesus. I then told her all I have to do is rebuke the spirit in the name of Jesus and it’ll flee. But ofc she started arguing with me saying if all you have to do is say the name Jesus why do they put up a fight? why is it so hard for them to leave someone’s body if they tremble at the name of Jesus? she said she watched a lot of exorcist documentaries and sometimes the demons never leave. All I could say to her was that the person doing so doesn’t have the holy spirit in them so that’s why they didn’t flee… she again denied the power of God. She literally thinks God is weak and doesn’t agree with anything he says in the Bible.

2021.10.19 04:35 thenormalfeedback Circuit Menu Review
Im sure nobody heard about this 5$ skid menu, i sus this menu is copy pasted source, base from unknowncheats because imgui.ini file created in GTA root directory. (if you know about UC old public menu then you know imgui.ini file)
Menu UI - it give me headache -1
Protections - Not existence its pure dogshit -1
Kick & Crash option - kiddions can counter this -1
Trolling options - like a every skid menu does -1
chat logger is there who needs that shit -1
Discord support - absolutely trash -1
Many features are added just to show off (like chat commands, unlocks, aimbot, triggerbot, outfit editor bug ) but none of them works -4
finally 0/10 conclusion : don't even fall for this skid menu.

2021.10.19 04:35 Jnxie Postpartum OCD, Seperation Anxiety or what?
I cannot leave my 3 month old daughter even for a couple hours, I have quit work over this and my social life has greatly suffered because of this. I thought this would all get better but it's getting extremely worse. I have extreme anxiety when I leave her, to the point of panic attacks sometimes. I'm okay when I'm away from her but when I come back, the severe anxiety comes back and I'm paranoid she was mistreated while I was gone so I check her and drill the people who where watching her. I have extreme anxiety before and after I leave, but not while I'm gone. I'm scared harm will come to my baby or someone will hurt my baby when I know that thought is irrational, or just that something bad will happen to my baby in general. When I shower, I put her in the carseat and take her in the bathroom with me. This severe anxiety is affecting all aspects of my life, and I am losing friends over it because I am mean and accusing when these thoughts happen but I truly can't help it. When I calm down from the anxiety, I realize my thoughts were irrational and I apologize to everyone around me. This is getting extreme and it's not fair of me to treat others so harshly because of these thoughts and anxiety, but I truly cannot help it. I have tried my hardest.
What could this be? What can I do to control myself from hurting others feeling unintentionally while my anxiety is high and my thoughts are irrational?

2021.10.19 04:35 susurrans Do you think there’s value in a quick-start guide to genealogy research?
Late night thoughts here. I’m sure I’ll forget some points, but here goes.
I’m thinking of creating an incredibly basic quick-start guide/roadmap for people who want to research their ancestors. I would probably focus on the more practical side of research, rather than cover what’s already on this sub or available in finding aids. Ideally, saving people a few steps.
While writing my book about my great great grandfather, it’s become clear to me the breadth of information that exists that people just…don’t think about. Or think to ask about. Or don’t even know the correct terminology to search!
Like yesterday, I discovered that a county museum near where my great-great grandparents lived kept that county’s chattel indices. I realized immediately that (relating to a query I’d asked another records custodian month ago) I had asked for the wrong type of document!
I’ve also had multiple people reach out to me here and on my book’s Instagram with questions about accessing mental health records from specific states (I’m flattered tbh because I’ve spent a lot of effort getting my own family’s mental health records. I’m happy to give back.) Maybe that’s the route to go?
If you got this far, thanks for reading my ramblings. I’m currently on a research road trip but will try to respond to any comments sometime tomorrow.

2021.10.19 04:35 andrew_thejew How does getting knocked down on the ground work in this game?
Im pretty sure I could find this info somewhere but im now sure what the term is
Like when the enemy hits you, and you get knocked down and you cant move. So you have to go through a getup attack and animation to be able to get up.
Im pretty sure its not RNG but what causes you to get floored? Also what can I do when the enemy keeps on flooring me and I cant get up?
