2020.11.30 23:28 Stunning-Artichoke-6 Is it time for me (22F) to break up with my (25M) boyfriend?

Sorry for the length of this!
Me and my boyfriend (we'll call him Bob) have been dating for just under two years, and this is my first really long term relationship, but it is his third. To be honest, I'm struggling with whether these issues are deal breakers, or if they're just regular relationship problems that appear after a while of dating. I do think he is a nice guy, and we do have fun together for the most part/have lots in common. I've never connected with someone on the same level as I do with him, and I'm worried that if I break up with him, I'll end up regretting it. Obviously here I'm only discussing the negatives and there are times that he doesn't do the things I've discussed.
I'd like to think I'm a pretty chill girlfriend (at least I try to be chill), and he often tells me that I am "much more easygoing than the majority of girls". I think I let a lot of things slide that I shouldn't, and I always try to explain away his actions, or give myself reasons to not be sad or upset at things he does.
I'll keep this at four points.
1.I think can often be selfish and unwilling to compromise
As a bit of a side note, I think that him being an only child might play into this, and I notice that he does this with everyone in his life and not just me. I find that he will only do things that he wants to do, and doesn't consider others' wants and needs. For example, when choosing a meal to cook or a place to go eat, I'll suggest a restaurant or meal that I really wanted to try and if he's not 1000% set on it, he won't do it.
He also makes decisions unilaterally for us, choosing what we do and when we do it. For example, we were at a friends house and I was his ride and he told the group he was tired and was going to leave without consulting me or asking what I wanted to do/if I wanted to leave.
Once when I was at breakfast with him and one of his best friends, they decided to recite the lines of a song back and forth, and word by word to see who messed up first, even after I said that I've never heard the song. I ended up not being able to participate, and he didn't seem to care. These are all little things, but they really build up over time.
2. He doesn't seem to care if he disappoints me / would rather "win" an argument, than understand why I'm upset about something.
Seems self explanatory enough.
3. He is unsupportive
Whenever I am going through a period of extreme stress, or whenever something happens in my life, I go to him to talk about it, just as he does with me. If I express my worries about something he gets angry at me and tells me I'm overthinking. If I'm crying he will just go to sleep, or move away from me and watch a video on his phone. Whenever I tell him about a negative experience I've had with someone, he tells me that "It's fine because they were probably joking." I have told him multiple times that when I'm upset I would like to be comforted and just want someone to listen, and nothing changes.
4. I feel like a second choice / not a priority
This kind of goes hand in hand with point 1, but he always chooses his friends first. For example, if I ask him to do something with me or my friends he is "too busy with work" but if his friends happen to be doing something that same night, he's happy to go despite his large workload.
An example is that I had an extremely important event (not disclosing what it is to protect anonymity, but we'll call it a presentation for the sake of the story) that I had spent the better part of a year preparing for. It was likely the biggest presentation of my life and it dictated a lot of my future. Bob and I were going to celebrate me finishing it the night of the presentation (e.g., a nice dinner, spending some time together, etc.), but a 1/2 hour before I presented, Bob called me and said he was going to go fishing with his roommate instead and would be out of cell service. (I did talk to him about this and he did feel bad).
He also makes me feel invisible when we're at social events. For example, we went to a party with his friends (I had not met anyone) and we walked into the event and he was running around hugging people, did not introduce me to anyone, and he spent the whole night begging his roommate to be his partner for drinking games, leaving me alone and off to the side trying to make conversation with people who had no idea who I was. His roommate was making more of an effort to include me than he was, and insisted that I be Bob's partner instead. My sister had called me about an emergency in her life (call I had to take) and I was outside for 40 minutes talking to her, and he didn't notice I had left.
TLDR; My boyfriend never treats me like a priority, only does what he wants to do (can't compromise), and I don't feel like I have a supportive partner. Is this reason to break up?
Thanks in advance, any advice is appreciated.

2020.11.30 23:15 thatdudewithasmile I have no one else to share this with

This is my first reddit post ever and i’m a 19 year old who never payed attention to their english teachers growing up so grammar and spelling are out the window. bare with me. this year as a whole hasn’t been forgiving or rewarding at all. almost all of us witnessed losing a job, losing a company, maybe losing a family member or a family pet alongside a global epidemic that has ruined our basic way of living and coexisting with each other. Well, all those things I listed, happened to me. I turned 19 this year thinking that it was going to be one of the best and memorable years of my life, boy was I right but not in a good way at all. but let’s start from the beginning. i just graduated high school in 2019 and had a job at a local mexican restaurant which paid OK, but the management and the workplace was a [email protected]$ show. i knew i was going to work there for long so i had to apply somewhere else quick. i always dreamed of working at a nutrition store like GNC because I had been working out and going to the gym prior for almost 2-3 years. i went there whenever i could scrounge up some lose cash or did some chores in my freshman and sophomore year so i’ve always had a passion for trying new proteins, preworkouts etc. i apply and finally get a job there in mid February. I work there for almost 2-1/2 months and then covid hit. i lost my job, was forced to stay inside, and wasn’t going to school at the time. so... as a usual teenage 19 year old boy, i started smoking some weed pretty often. but something inside of me was just “changing”. i felt like i had a pit in my stomach and i started to question a lot of things and end up worrying myself, i had no idea what was going on. i lost my appetite completely and i would only eat if i smoked. i knew it wasn’t good to rely on a drug in order for me to eat so i told my parents what was going on and what ive been doing and they scheduled a doctors appointment for me. the time comes for my appointment and they’re feeling around my stomach to see if they feel any lumps or anything. nothing. they go to the extent of having me do a ultrasound. they found nothing, they actually told me i had a healthy gut. a couple days after my doctors appointment, my jack russell terrier i’ve had for 17 years had a stroke in front me and we had to rush him to our local vet hospital. due to covid, we couldn’t walk inside, we had to check in and get evaluated in order to go in which took forever because other people were there too. so we had to hand our dog, indy, to one of the workers and wait in a line... the time comes where we’re at the front door and one of the doctors comes out and tells us that my dog is in critical condition after the stroke and he advised us that it would be best to put him down so he doesn’t have to suffer. so we did.
my story’s kinda everywhere (my bad) but also last year before i graduated my great uncle slipped and fell where he lived and had to get rushed to the er. they did some blood work on him at the hospital and his whole body was being affected by brain cancer and pancreatic cancer. it was so far developed that we dont know how long he’s had it. he was unconscious before he died and when i saw him it wasn’t like how i saw him literally a month prior. this death in my family was very impactful because my great uncle was looking after my great grandpa and making sure he was taking his medicine on time and such. but since he wasn’t around, my great grandpa forgot to take his medicine and he also fell while taking a shower. he ended up recovering and was in a care home, but every time we visited him he’s forget more and more who me, my dad or my mom were. after some blood work was done he had pretty bad lung cancer and something else, i dont remember. the time came where he was asleep but wasn’t waking up. my and my family ended up seeing him that night along with my grandpa and grandma and there was this almost croaking-like noise coming from my great grandpa. my grandfather asks me, “do you hear that? that’s death’s croak” idk why he told me that but he did and he said he would be passing soon and that we should get home because it was late and my parents had work and i had school.
while all of that was happening that year, i was trying to maintain a relationship. we were dating for almost that entire year and were actually planning on moving in together eventually. blah blah blah, teenage romance BS. long story short, i really loved this girl and i hope she’s doing well. i wasn’t in a good headspace and wasn’t treating her like i should’ve and she dumped me.
graduation came, my parents couldn’t make it because work was bush and my other family members couldn’t make it. so i graduated alone for the most part and didn’t go to any parties. it was kind of depressing, i expected a little more out of that night.
but here i am today. i dont feel myself anymore. i stopped talking to my friends that i had because whenever we would go out, it’d end up with is resorting to smoking weed and nothing else. i felt like that wasn’t who i was so i stopped talking to them and playing games with them and started keeping to myself. i stopped talking to a lot of people that i had mutual relationships with out of nowhere. when i would try to think of things, it’d be dark. i thought there was no purpose to life and that im not going anywhere in life. it was bad. but luckily a local gym was open during the lockdown so that helped with the unnecessary stress i put on myself. i still dont talk that much to the friends i had. when i do, i run out of things to talk about and i kind of worry. i just remember LITERALLY a year ago i was having a blast with life and could keep a conversation going but now i can barely start one let alone keep one going. idk why im writing this, it’s probably not going to get noticed but. i dont talk to a whole lot of people that much anymore and idk what’s going on with me. but if somebody can help or just give me advice, i’d love to hear it.

2020.11.30 23:12 rantus Lies, Damn Lies and the Media.

Since I’ve been banned off of pretty much every mainstream Reddit political news sub and discussion board for pointing out inconvenient facts I’m making one last ditch effort at an election post mortem (maybe) write up in an attempt to bring the obvious to light. 2020 has been an epic wave of relentless propaganda. I argue that the vast majority of what the typical American sees in the mainstream news is basically lies and most of the “crises” that we’ve been dealing with are either totally overblown of completely fake and the media has a direct hand in all of it. So let’s start with the first big fake crisis that has been going on since Trump was elected.
Russia Russia Russia
The “Russian Collusion” narrative is one of the most fraudulent stories ever concocted in my opinion. If you love or hate Trump is fundamentally irrelevant. The notion that you can accuse a sitting President of being what amounts to a Russian agent is egregious slander if you don’t have exacting, precise proof, which they never had. It was a non stop show on the nightly news programs with child like news anchors spinning tales of how Czar Putin has Trump on strings, dictating his every move while continuously hacking everything. It was mostly fiction asserted by the Democratic apparatus and the Intelligence Community. All presented evidence was flimsy at best. So how did they pull this off? Easy, by relying on the average person’s complete ignorance of technical details. I see this tactic used over and over again to great success with the now uninformed, vapid and narcissistic American public. In this case the details are of the Information Technology nature. Let’s start with the DNC “hacks”. It’s the most obvious example.
When looking at this, bear in mind that operators purported to be based in China hacked both the 2008 Obama and McCain campaigns. But in the instance of the DNC hacks they were never even considered to be suspect. Odd, isn’t it? Very odd indeed actually, just like the whole story of the DNC breach. The DNC lost 300 gigabytes of “sensitive” data from their systems. It was reported by the intelligence Community (IC) that Russian actors breached the system and made off with that massive amount of data without anyone noticing until it was too late. And that even more data was lost after the initial breach and during remediation actions by the third party security firm that was called in to respond to the active threat, which was Crowdstrike. The narrative is that Russians broke in using software that the GRU uses. I’m not going to rehash the whole thing as it’s too long but the bottom line is that the IC and Crowdstrike asserted these findings and Crowdstrike claimed to have direct evidence of it. The reality is that they actually didn’t have direct evidence, and any evidence that they did have has never been publically released for secondary analysis by any other independent security firm.
In the Senate hearing report Shawn Henry was asked point blank if hey had direct evidence that the data in question was moved off the network (exfiltrated) via the internet, and shockingly he answered “no”. Bear in mind that every single day the media was reporting that there was concrete evidence that Putin himself was responsible for this breach. But in reality there was no definitive evidence that the data moved off the DNC servers via network access. This report wasn’t released for two years and then was only finally released under threat of action by another Senator. So what happened?
In my opinion if there was no direct evidence of exfiltration then there leaves two main possibilities:
The attackers had tools that were so sophisticated that they covered their tracks completely. This is virtually impossible though in my opinion given the timeline and the size of the data being moved. Even if the attackers tunneled into the system throughput is still throughput. There is also the fact that the files that were leaked contained metadata that indicated that they were copied at very fast rates of speed, too fast to have been moved over the internet . The DNC’s systems, and/or their ISP would detect a data transfer that large, especially at the denoted transfer rates. If they didn’t it would have to mean that they had no NIDS (Network Intrusion Detection System) in place whatsoever, which is absurd. So that leads into the next possibility (which I happen to agree with), which is:
It was an inside job. If there was no data exfiltration then it had to be a local disk to disk copy. In other words, someone plugged a USB drive (or other portable storage media, like a cell phone) into the system and had admin privileges (whether valid or escalated through a hacktool) and did a local disk to disk transfer. This makes the most real sense. No data exfiltration occurred because no data moved off the network. This is basically what Chelsea Manning did. Also, Julian Assange has repeatedly stated that the DNC data did not come from a Russian source. Once it was transferred it could be packaged for transport on another network, thus retaining the original metadata. And don't get me wrong, I may well have believed that it was the GRU that was responsible if it wasn't for the DNC's very odd response to the hack.
So how did he DNC respond? Immediately call in the FBI as would be standard procedure in a case like this? Nope, try again. They instead called in Crowdstrike, and refused to allow the FBI to examine the actual physical hardware even though they requested to repeatedly. Gee, that’s kind of weird. But it is what they did. It's as if they wanted to keep it quiet because they had an internal problem they didn't want anyone knowing about. There was a standard excuse that I saw being given ad nauseum for this very strange course of action:
They need the hardware to continue operations, it's critical infrastructure. Er, no. In an enterprise IT environment there should be multiple levels of failover protection. In the event of a serious show stopping event critical server infrastructure should have timed backups. The affected systems should be able to be taken out of service and timed backups that are isolated from the event can be brought online. Furthermore, even if this isn’t feasible for some reason the affected systems can be cloned to identical fresh systems and put online in their place. This is basic IT infrastructure management. The DNC declined to turn any hardware over to the FBI. Instead they gave them system “images” to look at. What are those? The easiest way to explain what those are is to think about the “recovery disks” that used to come with PCs. If you got a virus on your PC and it corrupted your Operating System and you couldn’t boot the system you could either hire a tech to try to repair the OS and recover the data or you could bite the bullet and reinstall the OS from the disks. That’s because when they configured the system at the factory they would then take a “snapshot” of it, hence the word “image”, that was basically a complete byte for byte copy of your brand new system. They would put that on a DVD with an embedded program that would erase your system’s hard drive (thus eliminating all previous data, including your personal data, any programs or viruses, etc.) and recopy the original factory hard drive data to the system thus restoring it to the state when you first took the PC out of the box and turned it on. However, as with all things, the devil is in the details. This is especially true when it comes to system imaging.
When you delete a file on your computer unless you use an “eraser” program (a data destruction algorithm like Bleachbit) the data you erased is still there. You simply “unlink” the “pointer” to the data that the OS created to be able to see and access the data when it writes the data to the drive. If you use an “eraser” program when deleting files it will write random data in place of a file that you delete so as to make it irrecoverable. You can also erase entire hard drives using this method. There are varying methods of system imaging. If you take a “forensic image” of a hard drive then you are copying the whole drive, including empty space and fragmented and deleted data that still exists on the drives. If you take a standard image it only copies active data that the operating system can see and access. All empty space and deleted data is ignored during the copy process. The only reason I can think of why the DNC didn’t allow the FBI to look at their hardware is because they’re hiding something. To me there’s no other plausible reason. I don’t know what types of images were turned over to the FBI but even if they were forensic images they still aren’t the actual hardware and it is not standard practice to do this in regards to this type of breach event on government affiliated systems. This is shady to say the least.
The Podesta email “hack”.
John Podesta had his entire Gmail account copied. Yes, it was a Google Gmail account that he was using for official business. This happened, quite frankly, because John Podesta is careless and understands nothing about computer security. He was a victim of what’s called a “Spear Phishing” play. This is when you get sent a fake email by someone with nefarious intentions in order to trick you into giving them something, typically your password or a credit card number. A phisher created an email that looks like a Gmail password reset request. Podesta clicked on a link in the email and input his username and password. As soon as he did that a program logged into his Gmail account and downloaded all of is emails. Make no mistake this is an absolutely baseline attack that no one should fall for, especially someone with high level security clearance. The phisher probably couldn’t believe it actually worked because yes, even a 14 year old could have pulled it off. Email protocol works a lot like regular mail. You can put whatever return address you want (The “from” or return email address) on an email just like on a regular letter. It’s up to the email provider’s security algorithms to analyze the email origination data and determine if it’s malicious or not. It’s also extremely easy to make emails that look official. This is because they’re basically just html web pages being sent using the email protocol. You can design emails to look like any webpage on the internet using basic tools built into your web browser that you probably don’t know are there. I don’t fault anyone for getting phished but Podesta was about to possibly become a high ranking official in a Presidential administration. He should have known better on multiple levels.
That also brings us to Hillary’s email server.
I’m not going to deep dive on this but there are three undeniable facts about this debacle:
She used a private email server, and this practice is frowned upon for security reasons. Anyone can set up an email server, as long as you have a computer and an internet connection it can be done. All the software to do it is free online. Linux distributions have it built into it.
She erased large swathes of data off of the server when it came to light that she was using a private server that may have been compromised.
The email server had no encryption protection for roughly three months because the security certificates were expired. This is just crazy. It’s beyond incompetent. It essentially means that the server was out in the open and low level hackers could snoop her emails and compromise the system with relative ease. It’s totally unacceptable and denotes a level of carelessness that’s mind boggling.
With all that being said, let’s get into how “The Russians” actually operate. There was something back in the day called the RBN, or “Russian Business Network”. This was server infrastructure that the Russian mob leased to cyber criminals that they could use to run hacking and phishing ops with impunity and the Russian govt tolerated it. Putin was, and still is, the Godfather. Any hacker from any country could use the RBN but if hey hit a big enough score they needed to render unto Caesar what was Caesar’s (Putin’s) or face his wrath. The GRU (Formerly KGB) is an active threat, no doubt about it. But so are other state actors and individuals, especially North Korea and China. Just because an attack originates from Russia, or uses hacktools with a Russian signature doesn’t mean that it’s the GRU and that Putin directly ordered it. It simply means that Russia IT infrastructure, either belonging to the state or the Russian mob, was used at least in part to carry it out. Brian Krebs wrote about the difficulty in defining what attacks come from where in regards to Russia. I simply feel that viewing Putin as this boogeyman that controls our sitting President like a puppet is disingenuous at best and pure opposition propaganda at worst. Russia is not some mythical super villain. China has far more money, influence, technological and military power that Russia does right now, and commits espionage against us daily even though our economies are tightly intertwined. Putin is not a nice guy in any sense, but to continuously call a sitting President a traitor and a puppet without any prosecutable proof is crazy and juvenile in many ways. So why all the Russia hate then? Other than the fact that Russia has always been our enemy in whatever governmental form it has taken? Well, you could just follow Glenn Greenwald or Matt Taibbi to figure that out but if you want it boiled down to a single word then here it is: Snowden.
Edward Snowden was a computer science prodigy and was recruited by the NSA to run several IT surveillance campaigns, including illegal domestic spying programs. He leaked top secret information and has bee a fugitive ever since. Julian Assange ran Wikileaks and was also a fugitive until his relatively recent arrest. Snowden is still at large and is being harbored by Putin on Russian soil, and may soon achieve citizenship. The bottom line is that until Putin turns Snowden over to US intelligence agencies he will be super villain #1 to the NSA and CIA. His continued defiance angers a lot of not nice people in our government. I find this somewhat amusing given how many crimes the United States government commits against its own citizens and citizens of other countries on a daily basis. “Do as we say not as we do”.
And last but not least there is the laptop of the illustrious Hunter Biden. This whole ordeal is the most obvious sign of blatant media hypocrisy to date. The mainstream corporate media has run with virtually every unsourced anti-Trump conspiracy theory ever concocted. And yet they implemented what was essentially a total media blackout regarding his laptop, or rather the contents of it. You can claim whatever you like regarding how the data was obtained. Whether the computer repairman story was actually true or if it once again was “The Russians”. What is actually incontrovertible is that:
The media has shown rank hypocrisy in refusing to cover the story.
Irrespective of whether or not the emails leaked are authentic or not the videos and images leaked of Hunter Biden are real and paint a very disturbing picture of him. Especially since he recorded his behavior without consideration of what it could do to his father if it was discovered.
The Biden’s legal counsel has never denied the validity of the leaked information.
Yet this warrants no media coverage whatsoever by the obviously in the tank corporate media.
And after all this anyone who questions their current narratives are labeled “fringe” and “conspiracy theorists”, or my favorite: “A Russian Asset”, which you can do without any real proof whatsoever these days.

2020.11.30 22:51 SeanIsOn123 [New York] Haven’t received benefits owed for 6 months+

I am posting to see if anyone has a similar experience or answers, as I am completely desperate. I filed for unemployment in mid-June after being forced to leave NY and move back in with my parents in CA. I received confirmation within a week or so that I was eligible to receive UI benefits and to start certifying each week, which I have and continue to do. For about 2 months I did this with no further communication or benefits being paid. Finally after certifying one week I was shown a questionnaire to determine my eligibility for PUA. Within about a week, that was also approved. I waited a few weeks, continuing to certify. When it had been too long, I started emailing and calling the DOL’s telephone claims center and, long story short, the automated messages prompt you to input your SSN And pin (which takes about 5 minutes) and then they hang up on you because too busy—no hold. The emails come back and tell me to call the TCC, same number that hangs up on me. This goes on until late september. Until one day, when I get a promising email: my benefits are ready to be paid. My payment status page says there is a payment of $0 pending of type “Last Week Worked”, but I figure it just takes a few days. Fast forward to today, it’s almost December, and the payment page has remained the same. $0 released on 9/21 and thats it. In the meantime, I’ve continued to call and be hung up on, I’ve messaged the dol on Twitter (a bot tells you someone will call and then never does) and even written a message to the Governor’s office. Nothing. Keep in mind, my UI claim dates back to April so at this point I am out several thousand dollars and completely unable to get back on my feet.
Today, someone FINALLY answered at the TCC. He mumbled something about my file showing a “break in employment” but that it should be no issue to sort it out, he just had to transfer me to a specialist. He even said that if prompted to opt into a callback, to decline it and remain on the line. I did so. 2 hours and 45 minutes into holding, a message asks if I want English or Spanish and to press 1 for English. I do, and they ask again: English or Spanish. I press 1. They say my response is invalid and they are unable to help me, then they hang up on me! I thought I had finally gotten close... and then after 3 hours (and six months) on hold, I’m back to nothing. Does anyone have any advice for a person at their wit’s end trying simply access the money they’ve been told they are owed? I will try anything, but It’s impossible to move forward in life while dedicating so much time and energy to this. I can’t believe how broken the system is. I am grateful that I had family to fall back on, but I just feel like the NY DOL doesn’t care at all about our health and safety, as I could just as easily not had the options I did.
To anyone reading, thank you for your time and have a nice day.

2020.11.30 22:50 yachtyyachty Need a Music Production Machine for Large Ableton Projects

What will you be doing with this PC? Be as specific as possible, and include specific games or programs you will be using.
Recording/producing music with Ableton. Goal is to achieve low latency with many plugins active
What is your maximum budget before rebates/shipping/taxes?
$750. For anything more expensive, it will probably be more worth it for me to buy the new Mac Mini with an M1 chip.
When do you plan on building/buying the PC? Note: beyond a week or two from today means any build you receive will be out of date when you want to buy.
Sometime in December
What, exactly, do you need included in the budget? (ToweOS/monitokeyboard/mouse/etc)
Everything but keyboard, mouse, and monitor
Which country (and state/province) will you be purchasing the parts in? If you're in US, do you have access to a Microcenter location?
U.S , no Microcenter
If reusing any parts (including monitor(s)/keyboard/mouse/etc), what parts will you be reusing? Brands and models are appreciated.
Monitor, keyboard, and mouse. Also running a Focusrite Audio Interface for recording.
Will you be overclocking? If yes, are you interested in overclocking right away, or down the line? CPU and/or GPU?
Possibly CPU. I'm not sure what the benefits/drawbacks are, or if I would even need to overclock to run Ableton.
Are there any specific features or items you want/need in the build? (ex: SSD, large amount of storage or a RAID setup, CUDA or OpenCL support, etc)
The soundcard will be an important aspect along with the RAM.
Do you have any specific case preferences (Size like ITX/microATX/mid-towefull-tower, styles, colors, window or not, LED lighting, etc), or a particular color theme preference for the components?
Doesn't have to look pretty.
Do you need a copy of Windows included in the budget? If you do need one included, do you have a preference?
Yes I will need a copy of Windows 10
Extra info or particulars:
My goal here is to justify building a PC over just buy an M1 Mac Mini, so it needs to outperform the Mac Mini for the price.

2020.11.30 22:44 BoldifyIT Custom Gaming PC For Christmas

I will be building a custom gaming PC for Christmas, priced around $2000. I figure peripherals will be around $250, so for the PC itself, it will be around $1750.
📷
What will you be doing with this PC? Be as specific as possible, and include specific games or programs you will be using.
This will be used mainly for school and gaming at 1080p - 1440p. I don't want to have any issues while gaming.
What is your maximum budget before rebates/shipping/taxes?
$1750
When do you plan on building/buying the PC? Note: beyond a week or two from today means any build you receive will be out of date when you want to buy.
As soon as possible.
What, exactly, do you need included in the budget? (ToweOS/monitokeyboard/mouse/etc)
The tower itself.
Which country (and state/province) will you be purchasing the parts in? If you're in US, do you have access to a Microcenter location?
US, I want everything to be able to be purchased online.
If reusing any parts (including monitor(s)/keyboard/mouse/etc), what parts will you be reusing? Brands and models are appreciated.
I have nothing to start with, this is a from the ground up build
Will you be overclocking? If yes, are you interested in overclocking right away, or down the line? CPU and/or GPU?
Possibly light overclocking, but nothing too crazy.
Are there any specific features or items you want/need in the build? (ex: SSD, large amount of storage or a RAID setup, CUDA or OpenCL support, etc)
Looking for a Samsung SSD as the boot drive, and probably around 2TB total for game space to start out with. If it's not way more expensive, I will avoid mechanical drives for longevity reasons.
Do you have any specific case preferences (Size like ITX/microATX/mid-towefull-tower, styles, colors, window or not, LED lighting, etc), or a particular color theme preference for the components?
Mid-tower is fine, I like the NZXT cases due to the cable management features.
Do you need a copy of Windows included in the budget? If you do need one included, do you have a preference?
No.
Extra info or particulars: I would like to have a minimum of 16GB of ram, there's nothing else I can really think of.
Edit: I want a GPU that I will be able to buy outright. I know the 3080 goes for $699 retail, but it is selling for $1100, so that is something I need to factor into the list.

2020.11.30 22:43 mavphoe Newbie heartache

Thanks in advance for reading, I could really use feedback and advice. <3
Hi everyone, first time posting here. I've always been interested in polyamory, but entered a long-term relationship when I was 18. I'm 22 now, and was hoping my partner would end up treating me better, but I decided to stop waiting for that to happen, and try dating someone new. I would bring it up to him as one of my wishes, but he wasn't interested in that. I moved out in August and let him know I got on dating apps, and let him know about the 2 people I tried dating. The latter (age 24) totally blew my socks off...a great match. Everything I'm looking for - also polyam, meditates, is a Buddhist, likes hiking and going on adventures, loves dogs, sexually explorative and so open with his pleasure, handsome, has long hair, a family person, extroverted, practices yoga, loves giving and receiving massages. We had great open communication on our third dates, discussed taking things a bit slow because we really liked each other. After we kissed on our third date, we talked about getting tested for STDs to clear the way for sex way down the line. When we got back to his house, he introduced me to his parents, and it was wonderful. I'm on my period, so we messed around in bed and I blew him. He was texting his partner updates throughout the date (it was about 12 hours long), and she was cool with everything. But, after I left, she reminded him that STDs can be passed through fluids, so she would have wanted him to let her know we would do that before, or get tested before. He called me last night to talk about it, and it was a really productive conversation. I asked some more questions about their dynamic and what he is looking to get out of us dating, and he said he really wants for there to be an element of friendship to our relationship, so that it doesn't turn into us only seeing each other for hooking up, which is the same page I'm on. So I ended the convo later by saying I look forward to him planning our next date and seeing him soon, and he sounded excited. But, this morning he said that he had thought more about it and he just wants to be friends for now. I responded and said I felt sad and confused because that's not what he said last night, and that I'm bummed because I really like him. We talked all day today; I got an STD test and he made an appointment for his too.
Is there any hope for our relationship to evolve into something more romantic down the line? I'll definitely continue to be friends with him...it hurts to like someone so much though and to not be able to fully express all your wants and needs. Has this happened to any of you, as newbies or more experienced? He's only been dating (he hooked up with 2 people) for the past five months, so he's pretty new to polyamory as well. Sigh, I hope to keep getting to know him. It was great these past 3 weeks. Any words of advice? I have BPD so I take abandonment really fucking hard, even though I practice mindfulness and use DBT skills to cope. Today was really hard but I'm making it through.
Much love

2020.11.30 22:37 alaskansteve GICCAWT 11.30.20

Things are getting really serious, really quickly. The scope of what we are dealing with is hard to grasp. It's also ongoing as General Flynn said in an interview yesterday.
https://media.8kun.top/file_store/40c19ad4489a12b4170af0da3b06fecca9dd4c3c40ef5a16fd0c73adc00a490b.jpg
(Edit: I will be putting any links the platform allows in the comment section. This update is massive, and there are a lot of pictures as well)
Corrupt judges, local politicians, media, and others are still trying to steal this. In GA, there is set to be a run off for Senate seats. The dems are already trying to change the voting laws illegally in what would be electoral fraud. As an aside, they set up a petition website for this election to stop the fraud, and I urge you to do your part. The voting machines were set to get wiped in GA which would be destroying evidence in a criminal case, so a judge blocked it, then allowed it, then blocked it again.
Either we are dealing with local cowards easily bullied by the feral left or we are dealing with liberal activists. What they aren't used to is dealing with republicans with a spine, and I am sure someone on the Trump team reminded the judge what the sentence is for destroying evidence. By the way, before I go much further, you need to know I am paying virtually NO attention to daily legal rulings, or daily vote totals. In my mind, all of it is meaningless until the fraud is sorted out and ruled on. It's all tuning up the instruments before the show.
That doesn't mean that some stories don't grab my attention. For example, 1.1 million votes were literally created out of thin air for Pedo Joe in PA. You cannot hide fraud on that level. Flynn said in the interview that Dominion was never equipped to deal with a landslide. It was designed to tip close or moderately contested elections. Some organization called 40,000 democrats in the contested states asking if they voted, and an incredible 72% said they NEVER voted. This has been forwarded on to Sidney Powell (SP) and her team.
In one county in Detroit, they looked at the votes and noticed there wasn't a SINGLE vote for Trump from a black person. You are supposed to believe this. In one state, they noticed that the vote split between Pedo Joe and Trump stayed at the identical percentage 53 times in a row which is a statistical impossibility. Lin Wood (LW) said CodeMonkey (CM) is a "truth bringer" and to pay attention to what he says. Flynn was in direct communication with him this weekend on Twitter. LW also said traitor governor of GA Kemp is out hunting instead of trying to resolve the fraud in his state. He asked why the Sec'y of State used Stacy Abrams' photographer to document the audit. SP asked how it is possible that a handful of attorneys have found more election fraud and corruption than thirty years worth of republicans.
PA is a cesspool. The entire state Supreme Court was bought by Soros which is why they keep making illegal ruling after illegal ruling, This guy covers the purchase in his twitter feed.
SP said they need to do a full audit of Mexifornia, but said that they are currently turning the Kracken "on steroids" onto VA where they found rampant fraud against multiple republicans on the ballot. They will go through state by state and not let ANY election get stolen. This isn't just about Trump which alleviates one of my main concerns. Trump gained 500,000 voters in LA alone, so they definitely need to audit the entire state where the most corrupt Congress-members in US history are from.
We learned this weekend from several military sources including a general that the Kracken is actually a military intel group, specifically, the 305th military intel. Ezra Cohen was affiliated with that specific group.
The NYT ran an article bemoaning the "crushing democrat losses", but Pedo Joe got the most votes in the history of the country, right? He won with the fewest counties in history, but got the most votes ever, right? SP said that they have proof of fractional voting in MI, and I am sure they have proof of it everywhere since that is a built in feature of Dominion.
This article covers 20 oddities about the election we are supposed to believe, and there are MANY more. Trump said the FBI and Dept of Injustice were missing in action in pursuing voter fraud. Partially correct. I am sure they are working to cover it up.
That brings us to the big picture moment. This is where it gets really interesting and where the strange subject title comes from. This fraud is on a level that not even the brilliant founding fathers imagined. Think about this. They perpetrated fraud by every means available: Fractional voting, vote switching, vote deleting, ballot printing, dead voters, multiple votes from the same person, fake addresses, machine tampering, machines connected to the internet, extending the election past the date, altered election laws, destruction of evidence, blocking poll watchers, purposeful typos on ballots, handing out sharpies, etc. I am sure there are more, but that is just the fraud.
What wasn't foreseen was the Treason and Sedition. The media is complicit in a cover up and perpetuating a lie. But here is where EVERYTHING changes. We have proof of tampering with the election by China, Iran, Russia, Canada, Serbia and likely Venezuela. It gets worse. We have proof of OVERT TREASON by US intel agents in the CIA, DOJ and FBI. In other words, we are dealing with a “Global International Criminal Cabal Along With Traitors.” (GICCAWT)
This changes literally everything. This is a nat'l security threat. This means it ALL falls under the military. The Supreme Court has NO say in military operations, and what China and the other countries did is literally an act of war. How does this get resolved? I saw several people addressing this this weekend, and you all know this is what I have been asking for a week or more. We have proof the military is going to control EVERYTHING, but lets get into some of the new stories.
Trump said this weekend the WI recount was about finding the people involved. In other words, they are looking for the criminals. For the new people to this, Q has told us they were ready to literally overthrow Hillarnazi until Trump agreed to run for office. Who are "they"? An insane 500 top ranking military admirals and generals were removed by Clinton, Bush, and the Fuhrer with the Fuhrer getting rid of almost half by himself. There were people loyal to the country replaced by armchair liberal generals like Mattis who literally said to stop putting America first.
THEY recruited Trump for THIS moment. They formed the Q team. They are helping Trump guide the military control of events along with Flynn. There is a SERIOUS rumor floating out there that the traitor head of the CIA, Haspel, was killed in the raid in Germany. She has not been seen since that happened, and watch the news closely for word about her.
According to the data on the captured server, Trump won 75% of the vote, there are over 38 million fraudulent votes for Pedo Joe, and because of all of this, the military will drive the show going forward. Some speculate that they will dictate to the Supreme Court how to handle things going forward, and frankly, I don't see any other way. Why? Because this is a multi-front issue and unchartered territory. Nat'l security concerns Trump with everything. The court handles the legalities of a fraudulent election. The military is going to be handling arrests and tribunals of traitors and criminals, and it looks like we have a BIG one as of today (more soon).
How can the court rule against there being rampant voter fraud if the military is rounding people up for military tribunals for this very crime? Seems like they have to coordinate in some fashion, and the military will lead the way due to nat'l security being at stake. Additionally, since actual treason is involved, it changes EVERYTHING and allows Trump to do things not possible without it. For example, he could shut down Twitter, seize all their assets including all personal assets of Stoner Jack. They can execute traitors, sack their businesses, take over their board of directors, etc. I mean literally EVERYTHING is on the table.
Word is that anyone involved in pedophilia and/or the death of agents or military personnel get the death penalty. Anyone else is a case by case situation. This can't be true, right? All conspiracy theory, right? Look at the recent happenings.
Rubio tweeted something about the election fraud and Satan's personal pawn Brennan responded mentioning the "altar of the blood sacrifice" in response. What in the HELL?! That is a direct threat reminding him that he sold his soul to these evil bastards. The anons and now actual military people are documenting the MOST military air traffic over US airspace ever recorded. That isn't a coincidence. They keep saying these are rendition flights, and the traffic is heaviest on the east coast and around Gitmo. Do you remember what Trump did to Gitmo? Look at the satellite images. (Leading link at beginning of this update) They are ready for something BIG. It's not just military air traffic. It's specifically black op charter planes and the HIUGE airbuses, AWACS, etc.
Military people said they noticed the cargo planes are going all over the US as if supplying bases getting ready for an operation. The military keeps tweeting about how "ready" they are despite Trump creating peace.
Do you remember the video I told you was a must watch video from Jerome Corsi last week who analyzed how this would play out in the different levels of the court system? He said this weekend there will be military tribunals including for Hillanrazi and the Fuhrer (Obama). This is the constitutional expert saying there will be military tribunals on the side! He also reminded us that the social media companies are CIA creations which allowed them to get personal information on ALL of us with us voluntarily sharing our info.
Still need more? How about this story, and this goes back to my repeated question from last week. Pedo Joe "broke his foot" this weekend playing with his dog. Um, yeah, RIGHT! Here is the problem with that. NO media is allowed to ask questions. Huh? The most popular politician ever just breaks his foot, and no questions are allowed? Can anyone offer any legitimate reason? Plus, last week he wore almost exclusively socks showing dogs on them. I mean every day, and the media covered it. According to the anons, dog pics are covert comms. I didn't report it, because I had no idea what it meant, but here we are with a broken foot from a dog?
Then explain this. Why did Marine One fly to that EXACT address where he "broke his foot" hours before this was announced? The long time readers already know where this is going. He didn't break his foot. He is under arrest and has an ankle tracking device. The boot is to cover it up, much like McStain had before his alleged execution. McStain kept switching his boot cast if you recall. Remember, I kept asking what happens when they arrest Pedo Joe? This changes absolutely everything. Will they announce it before the election gets resolved? I doubt it because it would look like Trump was going after a political rival to steal the stolen election. It sure makes it more likely he concedes.
It gets even better. The implications of this going forward are HUGE. Elections going forward will be secured with blockchain identification. One legal vote for every legal citizen. Here's how this changes everything. Look back to past elections. Do you remember Scary Reid was down 15 points in the polls and "won" decisively despite thousands of people saying their vote had been cast already or been changed? One author who lives in AZ said he can't find ANYONE who said they voted for McStain, but knew hundreds who didn't. Supposedly, he lost the lost election 70-30, but the rigged system got him in. How many established politicians going forward will be voted out in the first legitimate election? Nazi Pelosi, Piece of Schiff, fat Nadler, Cryin' Schumer, Harlot Harris, AOC, Mad Max Waters and even republicans like Turtle McConnell, etc. There is going to be a COMPLETE purge.
I cannot see any scenario where Trump doesn't win, and I think he gets both sides of Congress, but I have no earthly idea how this gets resolved with the fact this was an act of war with treason, and how do they do it in a timely manner with this level of corruption. Historic times, and YOU have a front row seat.
It gets even more complicated. NO ONE will accept Pedo Joe as president. The truckers said they were going on strike November 29 to protest the lockdowns and election theft. That started last night, and guess who they are striking against. Milwaukee, Detroit, Philly, Pittsburgh and Atlanta. In other words, the hot beds of corruption, and the grocery stores will find empty shelves in a week or less. NM just shut down their state, and a bunch of grocery stores closed permanently with lines to get inside groceries being 2-4 HOURS long. Just to get IN!
This is why I keep saying STOCK UP NOW! Those cities are effectively going to be under siege for what they did to this election.
Oh, it gets worse. An insane 44 MILLION people are looking at being evicted come ‪January 1st‬ when protections end. So imagine 44 million homeless people in the middle of the winter without food and a contested election with traitors and military tribunals everywhere. It is going to be utter chaos. (Edit: Trump will never allow this to happen, but Pedo-Joe sure would)
Switching over to the virus. To highlight this fraud, 90% of people testing positive have NO symptoms meaning they aren't an actual "case" of CV-19, by the CDC's own definition. Additionally, 90+% of those "positive tests" would come back negative if the PCR cycled at the 33 cycles as it is SUPPOED to cycle at. A court in Europe ruled the PCR test unreliable for determining CV-19 infection. CNN just said we need to cancel Christmas. They hate Christianity, so this is their golden moment.
I was truly surprised by this stat. After a year of lock ins, you would expect a baby boom, but instead, they are predicting 500,000 fewer babies for 2021. What is wrong with people? In VT, they are encouraging kids going back to school to report on their families if they had people over for Thanksgiving. And dems wonder why they keep losing? In NYC, huge underground nightclubs are springing up in opposition to the lockdowns (Edit: a return of the Speak Easy). While I love the rebel spirit, I hate the fact that 90+% of those going there voted for the lockdowns.
John Hopkins released a study that was instantly taken down showing CV-19 had NO impact of mortality, even among the elderly. In other words, the really old, really sick people who were going to die soon anyway, died from CV-19 (or with it). Rumor is Trump is working to develop a harmless "vaccine" that is little more than a vitamin shot that people can get to register as having gotten the vaccine so they can travel, etc. I prefer suing those companies into bankruptcy for dictating medical treatment without a license and for HIPPA violations. Your vaccination status is none of their damn business and not needed for you to travel.
Misc items: * This is a spotlight on an organization called THORN set up by liberal celebs heavily involved in human trafficking. * FakeBook's algorithm is now shutting down legitimate businesses labeled with "hate speech". * Anyone surprised to learn the UN is pushing pedophilia introducing a list of "sexual rights" for children. Remember, Vader Ginsburg wanted to lower the age of consent to under 12. Not kidding when I say these people are evil to the core. * Lexington KY is slashing funds for the homeless to divert funds to "implicit bias" reporting. * Pedo Joe said he would allow gun manufacturers get sued if their gun was used in a crime. Can we sue car manufacturers for wrecks? Can fat people sue fork and spoon manufacturers? * Remember the head of Iran's nuke program was killed? He was killed by a remote controlled vehicle with a machine gun mounted on the hood that then self exploded after the kill. This is the stuff of movies. * Mark Dice keeps pointing out that Ben Shapiro meets with robot Zuck, and doesn't get banned as their token conservative so they can say there is one conservative they don't censor. * Trump said we don't have freedom of press but suppression by the press. Yep. * A recent poll showed most agree that BlackLivesMatter made racial tensions worse. * Finally, word is that the most incriminating evidence about voter fraud is being reviewed by and being withheld for the Supreme Court.

2020.11.30 22:33 Mysterious-Canary842 Dating with a lifelong mental illness

Hi all, so I’m 20F and it’s safe to say I’m pretty good at being single. I’ve dated fairly consistently since I was in my late teens, had many many short ‘relationships’ and situationships but never a proper relationship or boyfriend. I’m straight and after the age of around 18 I’d say I became way more appealing to guys, I don’t have any problems getting matches and dates and everything. The problem lies within my head. I was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder this year and also have adhd, bpd has a very bad reputation among some people surrounding relationships (none of it true, just stigma) and I’ve become terrified of how to approach relationships now.
Before my diagnosis my relationships were very intense, rocky and would move very fast on both sides. I’ve heard the typical ‘you’re not like other girls’ line more times than I can count. I haven’t been on a dating app since my diagnosis or last ‘fling’ back in August and although I don’t intend on downloading any apps until next year (I generally don’t like them but not many other options for someone my age sadly), I don’t really know how or when to broach the topic with a guy out of fear of their reaction or what they may find online as there’s so much misleading information regarding my condition. I’m in therapy, I’m working on myself a lot and I would like another relationship at some point but I just wondered what the general dating community’s thoughts were on my situation. Has anyone else got a severe mental illness they deal with and how do they navigate dating? Or for the neurotypical people, what are your opinions on dating someone like myself?

History of Winchester Ammo

https://preview.redd.it/z2k1d6lp3g261.jpg?width=704&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=fee45090e6754477655a2a9da6b284dc19b18491
Winchester Repeating Arms is possibly one of the most widely recognized names in the world of firearms. Throughout its history, Winchester has ridden a roller coaster of wild success and near misses. The company is famous for its lever action rifles, bolt action rifles, and shotguns, and is nearly synonymous with the Wild West. They made excellent firearms that saw action in both World Wars, but they struggled in the years between and after.

Winchester Ammo Sales

Winchester emerged from the failure of a lever action rifle called the Volition, an offering available from the partnership of Horace Smith and Daniel Wesson (yes, that Smith and Wesson), which resulted in an improved lever action rifle designed by Benjamin Tyler Henry (yes, that Henry). Smith and Wesson incorporated as the Volcanic Repeating Arms Company to sell their improved lever action rifle. The Volcanic rifle had limited success, so in 1860, they released an improved version known as the Henry rifle and reorganized the company under a new name – New Haven Arms.
The Henry rifle came to be regarded highly during the Civil War, and the rifle's popularity boosted the reputation of New Haven Arms. Benjamin Henry was upset about how little money he felt he had been paid for the rifle that bore his name, and the resulting spat with New Haven Arms was handled when the company’s chief stockholder, Oliver Winchester, intervened and reorganized as the Winchester Repeating Arms Company. During the American Civil War, the Confederate Army troops referred to the Henry rifle as "that damned Yankee rifle that they load on Sunday and shoot all week!"

Winchester Rounds and Winchester Rifles

Winchester modified and improved, yet again, the Henry rifle, and forever changed how the world viewed firearms. The lever-action Winchester rifle is almost synonymous with the Winchester name. It is widely known as “the gun that won the West.” In fact, the Winchester rifle is not a single rifle, but is no less than nine different models:
  • Model 1866: The original. This not only helped the federal war effort during the Civil War, but also helped the French war effort during the Franco-Prussian War and helped the Ottomans inflict heavy Russian casualties during the Siege of Plevna. It remained popular until its discontinuation in 1899.
  • Model 1873: This is the “gun that won the West.” The original 1873 were chambered for .44-40 rounds, which were themselves an innovation as the first centerfire cartridge. The 1873 is also the famed “Forgotten Winchester.” A popular 1950 Western film starring Jimmy Stewart was named after the weapon.
  • Model 1876: The 1876 was a celebration of America’s centennial. No less an American than Teddy Roosevelt swore by the ‘76. TR used the rifle during his early expeditions into the American West. The rifle was standard issue for Texas Rangers of the time.
  • Model 1886: Introduced in 1886, this was the first Winchester rifle to make it to the 20th Century. It was used during the early years of World War I by the Royal Flying Corps.
  • Model 1892: This rifle was introduced as a direct reaction to a similar Marlin product. Winchester was feeling pressure from competitors and needed to up its game. While developed after the winning of the West, this firearm is iconic in its own right as the rifle carried by the Duke in several of his pictures, including The Searchers. This is because Hollywood studios purchased this still-in-production rifle in bulk rather than expensive antique alternatives.
  • Model 1894: Believe it or not, this was produced from 1894 until 2006, and then reintroduced in 2011, due to its popularity. This is one of the most popular hunting rifles of all time.
  • Model 1895: TR was likewise a fan of this rifle, which he took on African safari with him. A number of national militaries, including the United States, the Russian Empire and even Nazi Germany (who issued the rifle to its Volkssturm national militia).
  • Model 88: Introduced in 1955, 60 years after the last Winchester repeating lever rifle, this is the third most popular lever-action rifle Winchester ever sold. It was discontinued in 1973.
  • Model 9422: While it didn’t lack for power or accuracy, the 9422 is a bit of a tamed beast. Introduced in 1972, it was primarily marketed toward parents of younger children as an introductory rifle.
Winchester was known for their lever-action rifles, but produced other famous firearms in the late 19th Century. The Model 1897 pump-action shotgun designed by John Moses Browning is a notable example. Browning worked with Winchester through WWI, during which he developed the Browning Automatic Rifle and the .50 Caliber Browning Machine Gun. While they had achieved impressive production capacity during WWI, the accompanying Depression forced the Winchester company into receivership. The .32 Winchester Special was the only bright spot during this time.
Winchester’s specialty was innovation. They won the race for the first self-loading rifle with the Winchester Model 1903. The company worked hard to navigate around self-loading shotgun patents by Browning, including having patent lawyers work closely on the design.
WWII saw Winchester utilizing their high-productive capacity once again. The company regained some of the ground they lost in the years between the wars with M1 Garand and M1 Carbine rifles. And the .308 Winchester, released in the 1950s, became the company's most influential cartridge to date. In 1964, Winchester formed a new design group in order to take advantage of new technology in manufacturing. This date created a line of demarcation, and firearms came to be called “pre” and “post” 1964 models. “Pre-64” models are perceived as higher-quality firearms, and are valued much higher by collectors of Winchester rifles and shotguns.
Though Winchester sold many popular firearms – among them the well-known Model 94 lever action rifle, the Model 70 rifle, and the Model 12 pump shotgun – they were unable to keep pace with increasing labor costs. The company was sold to its employees in 1980, and incorporated as U.S. Repeating Arms. Winchester’s parent company, Olin, retains the rights to and still manufactures ammo under the Winchester name.
The historic New Haven plant finally shut its doors in 2006, and the building is now home to lofts, as are many of the erstwhile manufacturing centers of New England mill towns. The Olin Corporation, current owner of Winchester’s intellectual property, licensed old rivals Browning to make Winchester firearms in 2006. FN Herstal owns the U.S. Repeating Arms Company today. Several gun cleaning kits, knives and other goods are manufactured and sold under the Winchester trademark.
Winchester as such remains a significant force in the market for ammunition, with products that fit in practically every niche of the firearms industry. Their newest cutting-edge ammo includes the AccuBond CT and the PDX1 Defender. For shooters who like their traditional ammunition, the Super-X line is a popular choice.

Popular Winchester Ammunition

One reason for Winchester bulk ammunition sales is the variety as well as the quality. Some of the more popular Winchester rounds include:
  • 32 special ammo: Winchester .32 special ammunition is the only Winchester ammunition marketed toward handloaders. It’s ideal for those hunting medium-sized game. It’s also known as “32 win special” ammo.
  • 9x23 ammo: The 9x23mm Winchester ammo is Winchester’s ammunition designed specifically for sport competition. Unfortunately, it never really found a foothold in that world.
  • 300 Winchester mag ammo: This is the large-game ammunition sold by Winchester. .300 Win mag ammo bulk purchases are common because it’s a highly powerful ammunition accurate at 1,000 yards.
The history of the Winchester company has cycled up and down many times. It's impossible to predict how the company will fare in the future, but their resiliency seems to suggest that Winchester will find a way to be a top manufacturer of ammo for many years to come.

2020.11.30 22:22 Billboardbush Should I (try to) get closure from an old friend who ghosted me two years ago?

For context, I was a freshman when I met this best friend (I'll call her Jess (a Junior when I met her)) and I am a Junior typing this right now. I had a rough middle school experience and I joined Theatre class to try and meet some friendly people.
It started off great to be honest, everyone was very kind and I felt so welcome there. I got to know Jess very well, probably because she was dating one of the only friends I had in middle school. We talked pretty much all of the time, whenever we had the chance in school, and quite often on Snapchat (quite often past 12am). Around a couple of months after I met her, Jess's boyfriend dumped her. I was on her side of it all, she was sad for ages and accusatory towards the ex.
A few months after the breakup, all was well. We were both in the winter musical (I was in the crew but whatever), and we had just finished one of the last rehearsals. We hugged each other and said bye. We texted each other for awhile after that. All was good. I was happy.
When I saw her tomorrow, something was off. I could clearly see that she was ignoring me. After multiple failed attempts at talking to her, I got super worried. Did I do something wrong? Is she okay? Later that day I texted her, something along the lines of "is everything alright?" she said she was fine and just stressed about the show or something. I believe her.
Over the next few days, still nothing. It hurt. The final blow was when I looked on Instagram and saw a ton of photos with another cast member (a guy). For the sake of time, ill just say they started dating and I was thrown aside like a piece of trash (that hurt to write). We never really talked since. I did, however, have to see her every day for the rest of Freshman, and Sophmore year of high school. Now that she has graduated and It has nearly been exactly two years since we talked. My question is, I really want to get closure and hear the reason why she ghosted me, is it a bad idea to question her? Happy to answer questions!
TLDR; My first best friend ghosted me two years ago, should I confront her and ask why?

2020.11.30 22:22 ImInArea52 I rented The New Mustants over the weekend..its horrible.

Had this come out in the theaters like it was planned to it would have bombed. Its slow, horribly cast, bad writting, bad story, dumb ending. Dont waste your money or time.
The one silver lining was the Queens Gambit girl playing Moon Dragon but even she couldnt save this train wreck of a film. Now I know why Marvel sat on the release date for so long..they new they had a stinker on their hands.

2020.11.30 22:20 DeamsterForrest If you’re interested in seeing if you have Viking ancestors

There’s a slight chance you’ll find them in Wikitree.
I was looking through Wikitree today, a site where you simply input a first and last name and then can find the family tree of. I ended up finding out that I’m descended directly from Hiberno-Norseman King Ólaf Kváran 😃 As far as the records can be trusted...
Almost every one of my lines I looked through ended in the 1400s - 1600s, but I was lucky enough to have a branch that ended up in the Irish annals for “noble” families.
Since Olaf’s progeny was recorded in the Irish annals, and since my great3 paternal grandfather descended directly from him (through his mother,) I can trace my genealogy back over 30 generations to Norse-Gael nobles such as himself. Neat!
Maybe check out findagrave as well like I did if you want to dig deep into your ancestry. I know it’s so far removed that there’s a chance literally anyone Irish or English (etc) is descended from him (and subsequently Ivar of the Uí Ímar clan), but I never was able to find any leads on these sites that went back that far (to the 900s.)
Most lines ended in very common and boring surnames without much history to them (no offense grannies and grampies lol), but I started clicking on random ancestors of my ancestors and ended up in a long line of Irish surnames that finally came to King Olaf Sigtryggson, which is the only actual Scandinavian name I’ve found in my genealogy so it stood out before I noticed the date. Looked him up and found all this information about Viking Age Ireland and how all of these distant ancestors of mine were part of Irish and Viking history! He was actually a prominent figure in early medieval Irish politics. Pretty cool.
Anyways, just wanted to tell someone and thought maybe some of you would like to know that you have two great sites at your disposal for finding out some of your ancestry, if your people happen to be recorded in them. Wikitree is definitely superior ofc but findagrave.com works well for moving back in time from the present (if you know your grandparents full names.)
Olaf’s great grandfather Ivar is possibly even the same Ivar as Ivar the Boneless, so that would connect me to legendary Ragnar Lothbrok! 😂 Okay I’ll see myself out now haha. That is, if he was even a real person ;)
Of course, you never really know who’s daddy was who, but I like to think people were good faithful Christians and made babies with the spouses they have on record haha.
That’s all, have fun, peace! :)
