I'm in college RN and it fukkin' sucks

2020.10.22 06:13 TheInvaderZim I'm in college RN and it fukkin' sucks

Alright so preface: I'm in my third (technically sixth because of dropouts and major changes) year of American college, having now been at as many schools, and our education system was already a fucking mess. Keep in mind that above the dotted line, this is shit that was already a crippling problem prior to 2020, I'm just rehashing because it's been blown the fuck up recently under covid.
For example, transferring schools? Why would we do something sensible, like standardize degree requirements and class names across schools nationwide, or perhaps institutionalize actual standards for education practices instead of just course content itself? Let me put it this way: when anonymous online educators like Crash Course and Khan Academy are capable of providing both higher quality, more comprehensive and somehow more personalized lecture material for free than your shitty fucking 100k-a-year instructors can for a classroom of 30, you have majorly fucked. up. Proactivity is the name of the game in American college - build your study groups, bookmark wikipedia and be ready to pirate a truckload of overpriced textbooks, because the only thing you can be sure of in any given course is that you will not be provided the environment or basic resources required to pass on the course's merits alone.
Not only does college fail miserably at actually teaching you, but it's expensive. High School being mediocre I understand - it's a baseline experience, mandatory, and free, so there's an allowance for general suckage. But what the fuck - depending on where you are in America you're paying anywhere between 1,500 and 20,000 a semester just in tuition for this supposed "world class" education, and this is what you get? Droning teachers and no notable extracurriculars besides sports, out-of-date course material and no personal attention of any kind? You're told to expect a charter school type deal, a sort of look at what High School is supposed to be, instead you're shuffled along into the next link in a long chain of mediocrity, throwing you out into the world just as unprepared and just as undereducated as when you went in, heavily in debt and now holding a piece of paper that's rapidly becoming as worthless as a HS diploma because - surprise - its now mandatory!
And get this, in a lot of ways its a step back from high school learning. HS had a sort of honesty about it - the students were stuck there regardless and the teachers did the best they could with what little they had. At the very least the basics it taught - math, english, science - were relevant foundational knowledge for how the world works (at least on an intellectual level). My HS instructors at least tried. They stayed up late grading, they put effort into making assignments interesting, they cared about the lives of their students, and there was a seemingly universal understanding that the young people they were caring for deserved their best. They kept class on time every day, and always made time if you needed something. And I would consider myself to have had a fairly mediocre HS...
Good god, I would never in a million years have expected to meet so many college professors that didn't care. I'm closing my, like, 7th semester and I don't think I've ever had enough fucks among my professors to rub two together. How the fuck do these people get off on being in charge of higher education? Go stick these droning dumbasses in front of high school students and go get the teachers that actually care into the better paying seats! If you're not in front of a professor that puts in the bare fucking minimum and drones on in front of a powerpoint for 2 hours, you're either stuck with some fartsniffer that cares more about their own standards and departmental beliefs than actually, yknow, teaching, or else a random civillian that accidentally wandered into the classroom with a knowledge of the topic and no actual knowledge on how to teach.
And that's to say nothing of the schools! Somehow, classrooms are smaller and more cramped in my multi-thousand-dollar college courses than they were at my already overcrowded high school! Technology is anywhere from 5 to 15 years out of date, and it seems to be mandatory that your shitty backend web service that links everything together be designed by someone who has never actually taken the courses the school teaches on UX, UI or general technical infrastructure management. Professors themselves are a premium, of course, but good god, you want to make an appointment with a counselor or your financial aid office? It's like the DMV on steroids, because at least there I can walk in and be seen eventually! At every school I've been to if you want to talk to someone about, say, scheduling classes or figuring out why your FAFSA isn't processing right, well you'd better be ready to sacrifice a goat and run a marathon to get a spot, with some particularly egregious examples of counseling being 15 minute appointments booked out literally months in advance.
And finally, you don't just have to put up with this shit for education that's somehow relevant, you're also going to take a wide slew of tertiary classes misclassified as "general education" that are there for no other reason than to waste your time and drain your wallet. From Roman Studies and Music Theory as a chemist to Chem 2 and basic calculus as an anthropologist, you'll be confronted with a wide array of stupid mandatory bullshit that you couldn't give less of a fuck about, and now you're paying for the privilege of taking it!
But here's the real insult to injury, the real piss-down-the-back, shit-on-the-face blatant corruption of the whole thing: of all your options, this piece of shit process is still the best and in many cases only access point into any non-trade career skills! Nevermind that you're, yknow, not actually learning anything relevant to the job you're looking for most of the time, or that unemployment is dummy thicc at the best of times so you've got a decent chance of working as a cashier or secretary anyway, if you decide you want to use your brain instead of your hands for a living, this is the only option! Fuck me, I don't have anything against trade schools, I just actually want to be a mid-level business manager for funding while I corral my own interests on the side! Why is this the only goddamn way to get there?
- - -
And there's the dotted line. Because this was all a shitbox in 2019, when the US only had to worry about a severely underfunded, undervalued, woefully mismanaged and completely out-of-date higher education system. Now multiply the suckage by about 200% by dropping a giant, steaming, greasy deuce called COVID-19 on top of it.
For starters, even 8 months after this shit started the organization and messaging around it is still completely fucked. The colleges are obviously torn because they need students in seats to justify their outrageous tuition prices, but they obviously can't just poison an entire generation of people! You have to understand that after the clusterfuck that was spring 2020, the reenrollment rates for the all-online fall classes were the lowest in recent history, and for good reasons we'll get to.
So what to do - maybe take the sensible and costly precautions to get students back in chairs and teachers back into their comfort zone by shrinking class sizes and taking appropriate precautions? Or, hey, bite the bullet and spend a few months actually preparing for an all online semester, and invest in the technical resources to both provide gear and teach the professors how to use it?
Nope! Instead the entire US education system up and collectively did the scummiest thing possible, which was to straight up lie about most classes being on-campus up until about 1-2 weeks prior to classes starting, wherein they decided to pull the rug from under everyone and move 95% of all classes online.
And that wasn't enough, because why not screw both sides of the spectrum while you're at it! If you happened to be part of the arbitrary 5-10% of classes that are still in person, congratulations, you may now bear witness to some of the trashiest and lowest-effort protections against the pandemic possible. Been into a doctor's office lately? That's the appropriate level of sanitation and precaution. Been into a school? Well, we're just gonna give you some sanitizer wipes, make you wear a mask and tell you good luck!
Meanwhile, let's talk about our system's pitiful excuse for "online learning." Here's a simple math problem: what's the result when you add a technologically-inept professor to an already-under-performing IT infrastructure, subtract any training that could've been provided from the equation, multiply it all by an already underfunded and understaffed IT department, and raise it to the power of nonexistent tools, peripherals and materials for actually making the whole experience possible?
Spoilers: you get a fucking Fukushima-level disaster event. Formerly, it seemed that every professor in America needed to take a test on how to not use technology before they were considered qualified to teach - such basic skills as typing proficiency, technical understanding of computers and general user savvy are apparently frowned upon in the teaching world. Now let's go ahead and rely entirely on that poorly-understood and utterly-misused technology for a year or two, while providing none of the basic tools such as a tablet for annotations or even a proper fucking high-quality microphone for teaching. Most astonishing to me was that teaching remote was even possible, as the internet at my most recent school was so abysmal that it wouldn't be possible to attend a digital class if you were on campus!
Mark my words, this semester and the one before it have been a disaster for the American people that will come to be seen as the death knell of the country's labor force, because this system is not failing, it has failed. There is such a high rate of dropout, such an extreme failure rate in both higher education and lower, that this year has set back more than half the students in the system, if not completely failed them and watched them drop from it entirely. Like the earth-shattering unemployment that isn't being talked about, this complete failure of our schools will fundamentally uproot the economy as soon as the rest of the country wakes the fuck up to it.
And to that end, I. Am. Out. Despite my huge amount of time in school, I have 4 semesters left before I graduate with my bachelor's, and I'm doing everything in my power to get the fuck out of this country for it. Whether it's Canada, Europe, New Zealand or goddamn Mexico, anywhere is better than here, and if you're reading this right now from a situation similar to mine, I cannot emphasize enough that you should do the same. Get out, now, before everyone else realizes what's going on and the situation crashes down completely.
If nothing else it'll come with a side benefit of no longer being stuck underneath our absurd tuition and trash-tier economy.

2020.10.18 16:16 DoctorGirlfriendDVM After 5.5 years do I commit or quit? Help.

Hello strangers of the internet, I don't really have many close friends to talk to, but I want to get some opinions on my situation. After 5.5 years he (33 M) still hasn't proposed to me (29 F). At this point I'm not sure if I should stick with it and be patient or leave him. Here is background:
We started dating summer of 2015 while I was on summer break from school. He did not pursue graduate training so he'd already been employed for a few years. We went on a few dates, and hung out a lot. One day I demand to know are we just dating, or is this a relationship? I'd dated before but never been in a relationship, he'd been in multiple relationships before. He decided we're in a monogamous relationship. We continued to date over the summer.
The wrench was I attended school out of state (and 1000+ miles away) and would be continuing for the next 2 years. I was upfront and honest with him about the long distance and that I didn't want to be in any relationship without the potential of marriage, it was important to me to get married. Apparently he'd done the out of state, 1 in school long distance thing before (within the same state even- that's a 1 in 50 odd) but despite saying he was never gonna date a student or do long distance, he decided he wanted to stick it out. And that for him, yes he could see marriage in our future.
Long distance for 2 years after only dating for 3 months is hard, but we made it work and honestly it just felt easy. One day while he was visiting I lost a cheap, costume jewelry ring, it slipped off my finger because I'm between sizes and have a hard time finding ones that fit well. He smiled, grabbed my finger and said "Well, someday you'll get a ring that fits really well." After that I bought a special carved wooden box, a taco bell hot sauce packet that says "I do" (it means something to US), and a ring. I wasn't ready that moment, but I was ready to be ready.
After 2 years I graduated, got a job and moved in with him. Shortly after we had a chat about where the relationship was going. In which he says essentially "long distance really didn't count so it hasn't really been 2 years together." I was furious how can that just not count?! But like a dummy, I stayed.
Year 3 I bring up hey? It's been 3 years what about marriage, what's our time frame? His gut reaction was "I'm not sure I want to get married." To which I responded WTF?! As this was a complete 180 from several years of someday I want to marry you. I say to him "well marriage is important and if you can't see yourself married there's not a future here for us. I don't want to waste 5 years of my time only to find out you don't want to do this." He immediately changes his tune and says "Well I'm just not ready yet. I do want to marry you." Like a dummy I stayed.
Year 4 we took a semi-big vacation, I thought maybe it would be time. I brought along the proposal answer box, just in case. There was no proposal. Like a dummy, I stayed. Started making more comments about proposal engagement. Meanwhile every facebook announcement of engagement of couples who met after us yet get engaged sends a hot wave of sickness through me and make me ask "what's wrong with me that he doesn't want to propose?" Along with disappointment. Towards the end of year 4 I tell him one day "I'm not going to wait for you for forever, you need to figure your shit out."
Year 5 we take a big vacation. This is it, I'm sure of it. Right before we leave a friend couple who met during our year 3 gets engaged. On our trip we bump into them and I can't stand to be with them because all I feel is hot resentment towards them, towards my BF, towards myself. Several times during the trip I have this moment of this is it only to be let down. Including standing at a scenic lookout, watching the sun rise over water and forest. At one point he says "I'm gonna run to the car, I need water, I'm really thirsty." I start smiling. This. Is. It. He returns from the car, with his water bottle. A few days later I get drunk and courageous. I ask what his time frame for marriage is. He says "I don't have one." My stomach slides out of my body onto the floor somehow. I immediately tell him that I don't think there's a future for us because our time frames are too different. If he doesn't want what I want there's no future for us. I ugly cry through the process of paying the bill, driving back to the hotel. He leaves to get ice at the gas station that's a 2 minute walk away. He's gone for 40 minutes. He comes back and says "I was planning on talking to my mom about it next month, so within the next year." So like an idiot, I stayed.
A few weeks ago 5.5 years in) was the final straw. Some friends got married. They met after us. They got engaged before us and they got married. How come they can figure this out but we (he) can't? All I feel towards him are these first hot feelings of resentment and shame. I honestly have this feeling like he could propose tomorrow, and I'd say no.
Has he waited too long? Do I hold out hope and let those hot feelings cool and see where I'm at? Or do I just give up and say I wasted 5 years like I said I didn't want to?
Thank you in advance strangers of the internet.

2020.10.09 14:21 Wesselink Newly bi - is there a book?

My first post here - apologies for the length/background/etc.
SHORT version: newly exploring being gay/bi. I know I can read and ask questions in this subreddit (and others, and search the internet for info). But is there some sort of Gay/Bi for Dummies book? Or maybe a well organized website of topics that every new gay/bi guy should learn? Looking for something that would help me understand/move forward in my new gay/bi lifestyle.
LONG version (if you want):
I'm 40 and recently admitted to myself that I'm bi (maybe I'm gay, but I'm calling it bi for the moment). I've had a few sexual encounters with men so far, but now I'm starting to think about more than just one night stands. Maybe FWB or even a relationship of sorts. I'm finding out there are a lot of new things to learn about - from terminology to relationship/sexual dynamics. I'm coming to this with a lifetime of being "straight" so my point of view on things is definitely tinted.
I've slowly figured out a lot of the terminology I wasn't previously familiar with, but every week there's a few new things I hear and have to figure out.
With regard to relationship/sexual dynamics: I'm used to dating women that are within 2-3 years of my age. In MF situations, I always felt like I was the pursuer and a lot of the women I was attracted to were out of my league (I'm kinda chubby, starting to bald, etc).
With men, one of the things I'm really enjoying is the fact that younger (and what I would classify as hot) guys are finding me attractive and now I'm the one being pursued - this is blowing my mind in comparison to my "straight" life. Additionally - I've had a number of couples (or one of a couple) pursue me. While exciting/hot, I don't know quite what to make of it. Some are purely sexual in nature, but others seem to be more interested in a FWB or more type situation. Open/poly relationships seem to be a lot more prevalent in the gay community - and I'd like to understand more about that too. There's just so many layers to that with regard to being new to things, and being the "third wheel."
I know every relationship will be different. And I know I probably need to ask some of the relationship dynamics questions directly to the couple/person. But I like to be somewhat prepared with an idea of what's common in the community.
I know this subreddit exists for questions - so as they come up I can ask here, on others, and of course read a lot of the posts to absorb. But, I'm hoping there might be a book like "Newly Gay/Bi for Dummies" or a website that organizes these issues by topic. Like all the important things to know for a newbie. They say "you don't know what you don't know," so there's things I probably need to know about, but I don't know enough to ask about them. I appreciate everyone's input on topics, and it can certainly be valuable to hear different opinions - but I could read nonstop for a year and probably never get through everything.
Is there such as thing as a Gay mentoguide/coach? I'm considering seeing a therapist (hopefully find one who deals with sexuality issues), but I think most of those therapy conversations will be me coming to grips with this transition in my head, coming out to friends/family, etc. Not really sure if that's the best venue (or even best use of time/money) for a primer on being gay.
Sorry again if this first post was rambling. I appreciate any input you can provide.

Ok so thia morning's post is sick but par for the course. Apparently Stacey and the original person stalking Steve, Kimberly Berry used to date a convicted sex offender currently incarcerated named Aaron. He used this bizarre way to spy on and groom his victims telepathically. (Still true)
So the rumor is Stacey played a role in his conviction so Kim thought i can retaliate by performing the same trick in Salem Crossing. Stacey aware of the criminal charges she will be facing if she follows thru said "Yea girl do it, i ain't gonna help but i will not stop you!"
Stacey might've taken it correctly by that if an adult does something perverted like that it will cause people to feel uneasy and question you i want no parts. Plus if you can feed dummies ego it will eventually explode and wow expect fireworks!
Lastly to all participants if you are going to emit sound while being investigated for Steve always being surrounded by the sound of your voice and proclaiming all social media posts are about you but the person writing should be arrested for harrassing you remember this
ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS REPORT THE INTERNET SLANDER THE WRITER WILL GLADLY ACCEPT ANY CHARGES YOU CAN PRESS!!
Steve said he'd never want to PUBLICLY MISIDENTIFY anyone involved with raping Nathaniel Rivera

2020.09.21 19:31 _Glory-to-Arstotzka_ Embracing Your Sexuality Part 1 - An Overview

An Introduction to this series:

In an interview with The Christian Post, Cait West admits the following: “I felt very disconnected from my own body because I was never taught about the sexual part of me [...] I didn’t want to think about my own body or explore my own sexuality because it was a dirty part of me I wasn’t allowed to explore. It made me feel weird about living in my own body, and I didn’t realize just how much I hated my own body [...] I’ve had a lot of trouble with disassociation in sexually intimate moments because it’s too much for me to be present in my own body because it feels bad [...] For years, you’re told something is bad — and then suddenly you get married and you’re supposed to be OK with it. It was like I was trained not to have that part of me turned on or be aware of things.”
Does this sound familiar to you? Even as a single woman, this still hits close enough to home to feel like a sucker punch to my stomach.
If you are reading this now as a woman who’s sexuality has been held at a knife point your whole life — regardless if you’re single, dating, engaged, or married — I welcome you with open arms. Cait West’s story was close to my own not too long ago. The cobwebs of doubts and feelings of guilt and shame still linger. I understand your silent suffering, even if you have been trained out of thinking it is suffering. So I will say this as often as I can:
Your sexuality is NOT a sin. Your sexuality IS a gift of God. Your sexual desires are NORMAL and HEALTHY.
Over the next parts I will walk you through my own life as I attempt to unpack this struggle that so many Christian women face. You are not alone in this, and I hope you can learn to drop this unnecessary, crushing burden the church has put on you, just as I am learning to now.

What is “Purity Culture”?

Despite my admittedly excessive amounts of time on the internet, this was a term I didn’t come across until very recently. It’s one of those terms that attempts to encompass a broad cultural movement. Those who lived through that movement know exactly what it means, but struggle to define it exactly due to the different ways it manifested in various communities. Since I wasn’t one of the (un)lucky ones that lived through the birth and entrenchment of this movement, my approach to defining this is also broad.
In the 1980s and 1990s, there was a push across American society to lower teen pregnancy rates. This push came in the form of an aggressive swing away from the “free love” of the 60s and 70s. Abstinence was queen, women were charged with not tempting the men in dress or actions, and casual dating was discouraged.
If you feel you would be responsible for tempting a man by wearing leggings or being “overly” friendly, if you feel as though going on multiple first dates would tarnish your reputation and/or innocence, or if the idea of kissing before marriage scares you — not for fear of being tempted but for fear of doing something “dirty” — you have been inducted into this purity culture. Of course, these examples only scratch the surface of the vast impact this movement has had. These more serve as a waypoint to begin your expedition in determining how you’ve been affected by it.
While this movement died off in most all secular communities following the 90s, it continues to prevail in most Christian circles. This is where most conservative communities find themselves now.

How does churchianity view women?

(If you are unfamiliar with the term “churchianity”, it simply refers to church culture as opposed to biblical truth.)
This is not a subject I can broach easily, nor does it deserve to be glossed over. In my experience, Christian women are either seen as saved sluts or innocent virgins. That is to say: either she’ll be good in bed but not as a housewife or the other way around. But the keyword here is seen.
Whether one is a virgin or not is rather black and white. But being good in bed or being a good housewife are both things one can learn and become better at. The Bible actually has foundational wisdom and instruction for both of these areas. Just check out Song of Solomon for what a biblically endorsed sex life looks like. For being a good housewife, Proverbs is the most concentrated source, but you’ll find verses and examples scattered throughout the Bible.
So where are the horny virgins? The housewives in training? Don’t bother asking the church, for that much nuance would send it into a rage. How dare I even acknowledge the existence of Song of Solomon? Cover your eyes children, you 16 to 25 year olds, you’re far too young for that kind of forbidden knowledge.
I can joke about it now, but until you realize the ridiculousness of the purity culture the modern church clings to so tightly, you’ll likely look the other way when Song of Solomon is even mentioned, just as I used to do.

My “terrible, horrible, no good, very bad” first crush

I will be revisiting this topic in later posts, but let’s talk about how purity culture more or less broke me over the rocks of my first crush.
I used to think I was slow to achieve social milestones, with my primary evidence being how I didn’t have my first crush until I was around 13 years old. I distinctly remember as far back as kindergarten my peers “like liking” one another, or “like liking” me. But I couldn’t understand what made one like another enough that they had to have a different phrase to explain it. Then I had my own first crush, and boy did I have it bad.
I made his acquaintance shortly after joining his friend group during my last year of middle school. He was a strong Christian guy, in every sense of the word “strong”. Good-humored, intelligent, and active in sharing his faith with our non-Christian friends. I would be lying if I said I didn’t go weak in the knees whenever he unexpectedly approached or talked to me.
Now, recall that at this point: I am 13 years old, I’ve grown up in the church under the thumb of purity culture, and until now have only had the experience of treating my male peers as purely platonic friends. No one — not my parents or teachers or church elders or friends or even media — had prepared me for this moment.
To say I was a constant ball of nervous energy and my mind a whirlwind of conflicting thoughts would probably be an understatement. Even in retrospect, I still think it’s an understatement. I knew that if I told my parents or my church leaders about this, they would tell me in seemingly polite terms to disregard it. “Aw how sweet! I remember my first crush. You’ll have others honey. Wait until you’re older, you’re too young.” I was no dummy at 13. Personally, I knew that it wouldn’t make sense to date anyone until we were old enough to drive and work. But that reasoning was drowned in the vast ocean of disappointment in knowing that my feelings would not only not be validated, but would be shunned.
On the other hand, I couldn’t tell my friends either. The idea of him knowing about my feelings paralyzed me. Yes, the very idea of expressing interest in a guy frightened me: not because I was nervous of what he would think of me, but rather because I felt the act itself was wrong — almost sinful. Almost.
With the natural, healthy emotions inside me being denied natural, healthy outlets, I found myself shutting down. If I couldn’t talk to my parents or church for fear of disappointment, if I couldn’t tell my friends for fear of word getting back to him, if I couldn’t even hold his gaze without being completely overwhelmed, who could I tell? Who could I turn to? That’s a story for another post.

Our sexual foundation

8 years. It took me 8 years until I found RPC and woke up to the realization that God made me a woman, God made sex, and God made sex to be pleasurable.
Really think about that last point. Few animals engage in sexual acts for fun (although a fair number appear to find it pleasurable). For an overwhelming majority of the animal kingdom, sex is simply the means to the end of passing on one’s genes. It’s a drive; and it often requires specific conditions — such as the female being in heat or the season being spring. In regards to the animals that mate for life, a majority of them are birds and do so as a reproductive strategy to keep their offspring alive.
In short, humans don’t experience sex and sexual relationships in the same way animals do. We were actually gifted a far greater capacity for fulfillment, pleasure, and freedom in regards to sexual relations. Why? From the beginning, God intended marriage to be a reflection of His relationship with us (Christ’s relationship with the Church). Imagine reflecting the sun into your eyes using a warped and dirty mirror. You’d probably still blind yourself. Marriage is like that mirror. What a huge, completely undeserved blessing!
I’m sure many of you reading have already come to this conclusion, so now it’s time to take the next step: because sex is built into the very foundation of our personhood, you cannot live life normally without its context.
Note that I didn’t say you couldn’t live life normally without sex. I specifically mean sexual context. Men and women function differently on all levels: physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. Interactions are also colored by sexual context. A man conversing with another man is going to look different from a woman conversing with a woman, which in turn will look different from a man and a woman conversing.
Diving briefly into RP theory, sexual context also explains the nuances of interactions across the sexes. What women admire in one another is vastly different from what men admire in women, and vice versa. Understanding the polygamy vs hypergamy divide points to the nuts and bots of the differences in human sexuality.
The TL;DR here is that the purity culture’s biggest and most dangerous failing was not taking into account how foundational sexuality is to our very existence. Shunning the very mention of sex outside the marital bedroom has left and continues to leave so, so many young people adrift in a sea of self-imposed shame and confusion. Just like Cait. Just like me.

Leaving purity culture behind

If you’ve made it this far, it’s time to take the final and most difficult step: reintroducing yourself to sexual context and, most importantly, reconnecting with your own sexuality. This will look different for each one of you, but I’ll tell you the sub steps I took or am taking currently to give you an idea of where to start. (When I circle back to this topic in a later post, I will update and/or improve upon this list. Don’t consider it a master list or instructional guide. Again, this is more of a waypoint to begin your own expedition.)
The first thing I did was read “Come as you are” by Dr. Emily Nagoski. (NOTE: This book is secular and touches on homosexual relationships and porn. While I do recommend it, I do so tentatively. It was not written from a Biblical perspective, so keep that in mind while reading.) This book covers all sexual topics you could imagine from both a scientific and practical perspective. It’s specifically for women who don’t understand their own sexuality and teaches us how to embrace ourselves (with the nice side effect of drastically improving sex lives, for those of you who are married). There are some chapters or parts you may not feel ready to read. Personally I skipped over the part of orgasms on my first read because I didn’t feel ready to approach that topic. Remember: rebuilding a bridge doesn’t happen overnight! Don’t push yourself too far outside of your comfort zone, especially in areas as tumultuous as this. Reconnecting to your sexuality should be an exciting and joyous experience, not a nerve-wracking or uncomfortable one.
The second thing I did was allow myself to enjoy the sexual desires God gave me. Instead of quickly looking away from a guy I find attractive so as to avoid eye contact, I let myself pause and admire. And if we make eye contact, I smile. It took me a rather long time to work up the courage to do that, but each time after the first has been easier and easier.
Being attracted to a man is not sin, but if you allow your thoughts or eyes to linger too long it could lead to sinful sexual thoughts or opening the door for your heart to get inappropriately attached. To distinguish between the two, I frame the thoughts in the context of prayer. “Wow Lord, look at that man you made! He’s really been stewarding what You gave him” vs “Man, Lord if I could just be alone with that guy…” I’ve had both thoughts. The first one was me relating to God using humor (which He also made!) The second was sin, wherein the Holy Spirit immediately convicted me, I repented, and was able realign myself with God.
To add to that last point, I cannot stress enough that you need to make sure you include God on every step of this journey. How many women do you know or have heard of that swung hard the other way upon reaching college age? Such as dressing overtly provocatively or sleeping around. You will be tempted to go too far in your new found freedom, once you start down this path. Remember that you have freedom because of the absolute truth of God, found in the Bible.
The third thing I did, and am doing, is improving my body. Better wardrobe, better skin, makeup, working out, etc. Or to summarize it using the mantra of this community: No flat butts! Yes, this is to be attractive. But that’s only part of it. By improving your body, you’re forced to accept it as it is. For years and years I never felt comfortable in my own skin because I thought it was vain to take care of it. But God has explicitly charged us with stewarding — taking care of and improving — what we are given. This includes your body. So go all out! Be the best you you can be. God encourages us to! In accepting your body as it is, you’ll find peace. In improving it, you’ll find confidence.
Again, Joshua 1:8, keep God’s law on your lips always. Don’t go out of your way to dress provocatively. If you feel like you’re sinning by wearing something, then you probably are. If you’re unsure, find another Christian woman whose fashion sense you trust and have her help you find clothes.

Conclusion/final thoughts:

I began writing this as a response to purity culture, but the more I wrote the more I realized how many different branches on this tree of female sexuality, culture, and the Bible there are that could be explored. In the end, I decided that I could keep this as an intro/overview and expand on the different branches in later posts. Things like my own experience within this framework (alluded to in the part about my first crush), how we relate to ourselves, how we relate with the opposite sex, feminism and media, masculine vs. feminine, and so on. I haven’t yet written out all I want to cover, so this series may end up being fairly long, but I hope that wherever you’re coming from in your RPC journey, you’re on board for this ride.
Also, if you haven’t read Song of Solomon yet, what are you waiting for?

2020.09.20 08:04 neowal Where do you start with cleaning up your stuff?

Hi everyone,
I've been trawling through this subreddit trying to gather a bunch of basic things to do but it seems like it's practically impossible to be 100% successful and people have a lot of contradictory suggestions.
So I have three questions really:
What are some practical goals/steps I should prioritise. I do wonder how much of this is futile as someone with presumably years of their activity being tracked with little or no difficulty whatsoever. I get overwhelmed thinking of all the 100s of accounts, Email addresses, apps, etc all the different weak habits I have had etc.
I can summarise what I've come across that seems a reasonable start: get rid of email accounts and accounts you don't use, unsubscribe from unwanted lists, separate your public and private Internet life with different accounts, emails, usernames for each, use a password manager (open source one like Bitwarden), generally assume everything you do is tracked and recorded, use Adblockers, noscript and a secure browser through a Vpn (Firefox, Tor), avoid using Google as much as possible, delete Facebook and any of their products (I'm kinda stuck with WhatsApp and Facebook and Zoom atm), limit what info you give out about yourself and or falsify information, do not log in using social media, delete social media and or minimise use as much as possible.
My habits are the same as most people except I have dummy Facebook accounts I needed to join a group.
Where can I begin to learn about privacy and information security in a lot of depth and keep up to date?
What are the best resources for this beyond some of the basic guides and articles with suggestions I've seen. Where do the experts hang out?

Race Weekend Strategy Submissions

User Activity
All team owners are checked for activity after each race weekend. From the commencement of the season, team owners that are inactive will receive the following penalties.
Any failure to submit a race weekend strategy will also incur a loss of 8 setup hours on each car.
A team owner can give prior notices for inactivity, for example a holiday or a known loss of internet connections. In such a case the team boss will not receive warnings. The notices have to be given by the team owner themselves to the FRL Presidents, others cannot do that for him/her! Also absences need to be reasonable in time and reason!
All warnings and strikes will be reset back to zero at the start of each season.

Submission deadline

All strategies must be received by 11:59pm Sydney, Australia time on the Thursday prior to Free Practice on the Friday.

Race Strategy

Prior to the date of the Practice sessions, you can submit a race weekend strategy, which will allow you to replace your main drivers with Test or Youth drivers for Free Practice, as well as focus on your team's car setup for both Qualifying and Race.
Free Practice
In Free Practice 1 you can rotate your drivers to get an understanding of their true abilities. For example, you may wish to run your Test Driver instead of your retiring Main Driver to judge his or her abilities to your other current Main Driver.
This is also an opportunity to give your youth drivers a run, but they can only participate on race weekends that don’t clash with Formula D race weekends. Bare in mind that Free Practice 1 & 2 is a gauge of your cars race trim whilst Free Practice 3 is run in qualifying trim.
Qualifying and Race Setup Points
There are two areas of the car for each user to set up, engine mode and chassis work. Higher BHP in the engine mode will increase a cars top speed whereas more set up time invested in chassis work will increase overall speed.
The user can spend between -40 and +40 BHP in both qualifying and the race for each car each weekend. At the end of the season teams will be charged 0.01m per BHP over zero for each car. Teams will be advised how much they have spent in total per car each race.
Users will also have a total of 143 hours of setup to spend on each car for either Qualifying or the Race for each weekend with a maximum of 8 hours per Qualifying and Race sessions (a maximum of 16 per race weekend). Teams can also upgrades their Mechanics Training Facility under factories to increase the effectiveness of chassis set up.
Once a team has exhausted their hours on a particular car, they cannot submit anymore setup hours but teams are also under no obligation to use all of their allocation.
If you sub out one of your main drivers for a Test or Youth Driver, they will have their setup points allocation halved, but it will still cost your the same amount of setup points. For example, if you allocate 8 hours each for both Qualifying and Race, but sub out the Main Driver for a Youth Driver, your setup increase will only be 4 and 4.
A driver must drive the car they have driven the most in that season.
Qualifying Run Times
Each car may set up to three flying laps in Q1 and Q2 and two flying laps in Q3. Each user is to choose the number of flying laps in each session ranging from 1 to 3 in the session for Q1 and Q2, and between 1 and 2 minutes in Q3.
The more laps each driver runs in a session increases the likelihood of mechanical failures and driver errors. Teams are under no obligation to run the maximum amount of flying laps but are encouraged to submit for all three sessions even if reaching later sessions seems unlikely.

How to Submit

In your private team channel, please type !strat and then your teams name all one word (or example, !stratferrari or !stratracingpoint) and fill out the form like you see in the example below.
As an example, your submission could look something like this:
Car A
FP 1 Driver: John Smith (Main)
Quali/Race Driver: John Smith (Main)
Chassis Setup Hours- Q: 4 , R: 6
Engine Set Up - Q: +12 , R: -5
Q1 Laps: 3
Q2 Laps: 3
Q3 Laps: 2
Car B
FP 1 Driver: Terry Johns (Test)
Quali/Race Driver: Harry McKirk (Main)
Chassis Setup Hours - Q: 2 , R: 8
Engine Set Up - Q: -10 , R: +10
Q1 Laps: 1
Q2 Laps: 1
Q3 Laps: 2

2020.09.03 17:44 YuriMosha Industry of accusation: how do websites publishing compromising material work? Yuri Mosha Experience.

Industry of accusation: how do websites publishing compromising material work? Yuri Mosha Experience.
By Ignat Shestakov

Fake news technologies are becoming more sophisticated, partly owing to the support of Hollywood. Furthermore, the simplest methods of disinformation are getting more and more efficient. Izvestia has figured out why the oldest heads of this monster can never be chopped off.
“The oldest heads” are the websites containing compromising material, which make money from customers wishing to ruin lives of their competitors, and from these competitors willing to pay to remove from the Internet publications about themselves having different degrees of reliability.
And we are not even talking about such veterans of information warfare like the site compromat.ru, that was created in 1999, blocked in 2017 although still perfectly working, but rather short-living web pages that get created as quickly as then become deleted. Their editorial staff sometimes publishes damaging information not even at the request, but simply to keep up with other teams.
Kompromat as a business
Entrepreneur Yuri Mosha had to deal with compromising materials published on the Internet several times. According to him, back in the early 2010s, such things were done by single websites, unrelated to one another. Some of them positioned themselves as official mass media having editorial staff and real legal addresses. “At that time, we could fight it. We contacted that sites and threatened them with filing court claims. In most cases, it helped, because they were afraid of responsibility”, Mosha told Izvestia.
A new wave of compromising material against the entrepreneur who makes money by helping those wishing to move to the United States from the former Soviet Union countries, emerged two years ago. He tried to make a deal with the sites or to make pressure on them through lawyers. But this time it was all pointless: “Now this is big business, and there are groups that have hundreds of websites with dummy registrations”.
Photo: Screenshot
Mosha contacted several owners of websites containing compromising materials by mail. Some of them were ready to delete publications for $ 7,000, others — for $ 20,000. Ordering publication of material damaging a competitor is cheaper — from $ 50,000 to $ 5,000. “You send an e-mail. They answer: “No problem, here’s a bitcoin wallet, transfer the money and I’ll delete the post.” At the same time each group attaches a list of their sites to an email,” the entrepreneur said. He did not pay anything.
Photo: Screenshot
I found a dark PR man, whom I paid at the end, however, not for removing materials, but for his advice. First advise was: you should not pay anyone. As soon as you pay, they will understand that you are ready to do it, and you will keep paying for the rest of your life. And even if they play fair and delete you from one site, they will post you on 50 others. He told me: “You see, we all know each other, and we are retyping all publications. As soon as information appears on one resource, the robot transfers it to others. And if a person pays [an owner of one website containing compromising material], he will start to pay everyone”.
His second hint was that suing them is useless. Because when there is a court decision, if Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, Information Technology and Mass Media (Roskomnadzor) blocks it (only) on the territory of the Russian Federation, they will see that you are fighting with them, and will publish even more information about you.
Third, he said that the target must be not the sites, but Google and Yandex. As he said, they exist due to the support from Google and Yandex. Those two are just like salesmen in a gun shop who sell rifles to buyers who say they will shoot people in the street. They [search engines] do not fight against this [compromising material] at all. Before the lawsuit [with the search engines] I myself sent them information [about compromising material]. I attached a police clearance certificate, a residence permit, confirmation of citizenship. After that I had to go to court.
Now Yuri Mosha is negotiating a settlement with Yandex and is suing Google. Read about the difficulties faced by the entrepreneur and other people trying to remove information about themselves from the Internet (especially not from the Internet segment of one country) through court action here.
Making business on a kompromat business
In recent years, several companies have emerged in the Russian Internet segment that earn money by helping people remove information about themselves from search engines, social networks and mass media. They would not be able to make money if the laws on the right to be forgotten worked well.
Here it should be mentioned, that these laws in different forms exist in many countries. And Russia stays behind its neighbors, as there the law only entered into force in 2016. In 2014, the Court of Justice of the European Union adopted the decision according to which the users, in some cases, have the right to request the search engine to remove their personal data from the search results. And the preconditions for this right were already established in the Convention on Human Rights, which entered into force in 1953. In the United States, such cases typically cite Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act of 1996.
So, it is difficult and time-consuming to seek a decision to get the data removed from search engines through courts. According to Yandex statistics, the company satisfied 27% of processed requests within three months from the date when the law on the right to be forgotten entered into force (that is, from January to March 2016). Google has more representative statistics, which, moreover, has been collected since 2014.

That is why there are companies that resolve such issues avoiding judicial proceedings. They do not remove links to negative publications from search engines, but instead ensure that first pages of the search contain links to positive publications. They negotiate with social networks, contact websites and sometimes pay them.
The founder of one of such companies, Maxim Zlobin, told VC.RU that he first worked with company leaders, government officials and parliamentarians. But over time, he also started to work with individuals.
Maxim Zlobin, the ISN founder:
Once, a woman from Makhachkala contacted us. Hardly speaking Russian, she asked us to delete information about her sole proprietorship. At first, we could not understand why she needed this because search engines only showed records about the liquidation of the sole proprietorship. But then it appeared that her sole proprietorship had a code of the Russian National Classifier of Economic Activities (OKVED) referring to “Activities of massage parlors”. And although the woman did not provide any massage services to men (for religious reasons), if it became known to her relatives, she would be “forever covered with shame.” To remove this information, we partially used passages of the law on insulting the feelings of believers on the verge of the right to be forgotten.
Now half of Zlobin’s clients are businessmen, 30% are politicians, and 20% are public figures or individuals.
If you can’t delete it, take the lead
There are three methods the businessman uses in his work. The first one is negotiations, including offering money to web-platforms for removing negative publications. But, as noted by Yuri Mosha, this method is associated with high risks, including, first of all, the risk of the Streisand effect when the fact of an appeal may become a reason for new material. Second, there is a risk of getting into bondage when the payments to the web platform would become regular.
Prices for publication of the compromising material with which the founder of ISN works are lower than for those Mosha faced. Publishing information with a link to a foreign (containing the compromising information) site, costs €600–800. This allows the Russian kompromat-trash hole to avoid any responsibility for the publication. At the same time, deleting one publication costs from 5,000 to 600,000 rubles. That is, from $100 to about $ 10,000.

Therefore, the businessman considers the second method — work with search results — to be the most effective. Whitewashing articles about the client get posted and promoted in search engines. Thanks to this, the tarnishing publications move down to other pages of search results.
And the third way is a legal battle. When it comes to search engines, the right to be forgotten is used for this, but the common idea is that even if “there is some success in the court, in order to remove the information, you will have to go straight to the Constitutional Court”. Zlobin’s experts also use the law on personal data, which, in particular, states that no information about citizens of the Russian Federation can be stored and processed on the servers of foreign companies without the consent of these people. With social networks, according to Zlobin’s experience, it is often possible to reach an agreement provided that there is a reasonable proof that the compromising material is fabricated.
Kompromat on a business on a kompromat business
However, all this is useless, as Yuri Mosha noted with regret. Faced with the problem of kompromat, he contacted several companies of this kind. He did not mention ISN among those in his interview with Izvestia’s correspondent, however. And those he had contacted left him disappointed.
Yuri Mosha, an entrepreneur:
They cannot do anything. Some of them need a court decision. Others say, “We’re going to overlay [the negative content] with a positive one.” But I create such content myself, I have 5 thousand videos uploaded on YouTube, and it still doesn’t work.
All these companies are just scammers. They can’t do anything. I contacted one site [containing compromising material]. They said: half bitcoin [for deleting publications]. Then I contacted a company. They told me they would call back. They did call back and promised to solve the problem for one bitcoin.
Short-living website publishing compromising material of a different degree of truthfulness represent an ultimate expression of the fake news industry. Unlike the Hollywood-sponsored fake video technology, which (so far) takes resources and time, a site with catchy headlines can be created in several hours. And just as easily it can be removed from the Internet, as, for example, it happened with ostorozhno.ru.
The Site on Dangerous Connections, as was introduced by its authors, appeared in 2008. It published a standard set of material compromising politicians, including those of the Ural region, wrote URA.RU. Now the website link leads to a Riga travel guide with text stolen from a real travel site and ridiculous low-resolution photographs. It is quite obvious that when the money for the removal of the compromising material arrived, the creators simply covered it with a previously prepared dummy. And when a new order arrives, they will again remove it and continue to earn on lies.
Because it is so easy to create, remove, and reproduce such sites, they cannot be defeated. The University of Oxford recently published a report on the fight against fake news in various, primarily European, countries.
The term \"fake news\" addressed during the talk \"Between facts, fakes and manipulations - how do we defend democracy on the Internet?\" at the Ministry of Justice in Berlin, Germany. Photo: Global Look Press/dpa/Jörg Carstensen
The governments of all these countries do not make any attempts to counteract the sites posting compromising material. Because they just cannot. Most are trying to shift the responsibility onto social media. For example, in Germany, Facebook is threatened with a fine of up to €50 million if "obviously illegal" content is not removed within 24 hours. In some other countries, like Turkey or Bulgaria, according to the authors, the fight against fake news simply justifies the pressure on the opposition. And only two European countries, Sweden and Holland, came to an idea of teaching people to distinguish between rumors and the truth. Other countries, in contrast, just keep prohibiting things without obtaining any reasonable effect of this.

Race Weekend Strategy Submissions

User Activity
All team owners are checked for activity after each race weekend. From the commencement of the season, team owners that are inactive will receive the following penalties.
Any failure to submit a race weekend strategy will also incur a loss of 8 setup hours on each car.
A team owner can give prior notices for inactivity, for example a holiday or a known loss of internet connections. In such a case the team boss will not receive warnings. The notices have to be given by the team owner themselves to the FRL Presidents, others cannot do that for him/her! Also absences need to be reasonable in time and reason!
All warnings and strikes will be reset back to zero at the start of each season.

Submission deadline

All strategies must be received by 11:59pm Sydney, Australia time on the Thursday prior to Free Practice on the Friday.

Race Strategy

Prior to the date of the Practice sessions, you can submit a race weekend strategy, which will allow you to replace your main drivers with Test or Youth drivers for Free Practice, as well as focus on your team's car setup for both Qualifying and Race.
Free Practice
In Free Practice 1 you can rotate your drivers to get an understanding of their true abilities. For example, you may wish to run your Test Driver instead of your retiring Main Driver to judge his or her abilities to your other current Main Driver.
This is also an opportunity to give your youth drivers a run, but they can only participate on race weekends that don’t clash with Formula D race weekends. Bare in mind that Free Practice 1 & 2 is a gauge of your cars race trim whilst Free Practice 3 is run in qualifying trim.
Qualifying and Race Setup Points
There are two areas of the car for each user to set up, engine mode and chassis work. Higher BHP in the engine mode will increase a cars top speed whereas more set up time invested in chassis work will increase overall speed.
The user can spend between -40 and +40 BHP in both qualifying and the race for each car each weekend. At the end of the season teams will be charged 0.01m per BHP over zero for each car. Teams will be advised how much they have spent in total per car each race.
Users will also have a total of 143 hours of setup to spend on each car for either Qualifying or the Race for each weekend with a maximum of 8 hours per Qualifying and Race sessions (a maximum of 16 per race weekend). Teams can also upgrades their Mechanics Training Facility under factories to increase the effectiveness of chassis set up.
Once a team has exhausted their hours on a particular car, they cannot submit anymore setup hours but teams are also under no obligation to use all of their allocation.
If you sub out one of your main drivers for a Test or Youth Driver, they will have their setup points allocation halved, but it will still cost your the same amount of setup points. For example, if you allocate 8 hours each for both Qualifying and Race, but sub out the Main Driver for a Youth Driver, your setup increase will only be 4 and 4.
A driver must drive the car they have driven the most in that season.
Qualifying Run Times
Each car may set up to three flying laps in Q1 and Q2 and two flying laps in Q3. Each user is to choose the number of flying laps in each session ranging from 1 to 3 in the session for Q1 and Q2, and between 1 and 2 minutes in Q3.
The more laps each driver runs in a session increases the likelihood of mechanical failures and driver errors. Teams are under no obligation to run the maximum amount of flying laps but are encouraged to submit for all three sessions even if reaching later sessions seems unlikely.

How to Submit

In your private team channel, please type !strat and then your teams name all one word (or example, !stratferrari or !stratracingpoint) and fill out the form like you see in the example below.
As an example, your submission could look something like this:
Car A
FP 1 Driver: John Smith (Main)
Quali/Race Driver: John Smith (Main)
Chassis Setup Hours- Q: 4 , R: 6
Engine Set Up - Q: +12 , R: -5
Q1 Laps: 3
Q2 Laps: 3
Q3 Laps: 2
Car B
FP 1 Driver: Terry Johns (Test)
Quali/Race Driver: Harry McKirk (Main)
Chassis Setup Hours - Q: 2 , R: 8
Engine Set Up - Q: -10 , R: +10
Q1 Laps: 1
Q2 Laps: 1
Q3 Laps: 2

Race Weekend Strategy Submissions

User Activity
All team owners are checked for activity after each race weekend. From the commencement of the season, team owners that are inactive will receive the following penalties.
Any failure to submit a race weekend strategy will also incur a loss of 8 setup hours on each car.
A team owner can give prior notices for inactivity, for example a holiday or a known loss of internet connections. In such a case the team boss will not receive warnings. The notices have to be given by the team owner themselves to the FRL Presidents, others cannot do that for him/her! Also absences need to be reasonable in time and reason!
All warnings and strikes will be reset back to zero at the start of each season.

Submission deadline

All strategies must be received by 11:59pm Sydney, Australia time on the Thursday prior to Free Practice on the Friday.

Race Strategy

Prior to the date of the Practice sessions, you can submit a race weekend strategy, which will allow you to replace your main drivers with Test or Youth drivers for Free Practice, as well as focus on your team's car setup for both Qualifying and Race.
Free Practice
In Free Practice 1 you can rotate your drivers to get an understanding of their true abilities. For example, you may wish to run your Test Driver instead of your retiring Main Driver to judge his or her abilities to your other current Main Driver.
This is also an opportunity to give your youth drivers a run, but they can only participate on race weekends that don’t clash with Formula D race weekends. Bare in mind that Free Practice 1 & 2 is a gauge of your cars race trim whilst Free Practice 3 is run in qualifying trim.
Qualifying and Race Setup Points
There are two areas of the car for each user to set up, engine mode and chassis work. Higher BHP in the engine mode will increase a cars top speed whereas more set up time invested in chassis work will increase overall speed.
The user can spend between -40 and +40 BHP in both qualifying and the race for each car each weekend. At the end of the season teams will be charged 0.01m per BHP over zero for each car. Teams will be advised how much they have spent in total per car each race.
Users will also have a total of 143 hours of setup to spend on each car for either Qualifying or the Race for each weekend with a maximum of 8 hours per Qualifying and Race sessions (a maximum of 16 per race weekend). Teams can also upgrades their Mechanics Training Facility under factories to increase the effectiveness of chassis set up.
Once a team has exhausted their hours on a particular car, they cannot submit anymore setup hours but teams are also under no obligation to use all of their allocation.
If you sub out one of your main drivers for a Test or Youth Driver, they will have their setup points allocation halved, but it will still cost your the same amount of setup points. For example, if you allocate 8 hours each for both Qualifying and Race, but sub out the Main Driver for a Youth Driver, your setup increase will only be 4 and 4.
A driver must drive the car they have driven the most in that season.
Qualifying Run Times
Each car may set up to three flying laps in Q1 and Q2 and two flying laps in Q3. Each user is to choose the number of flying laps in each session ranging from 1 to 3 in the session for Q1 and Q2, and between 1 and 2 minutes in Q3.
The more laps each driver runs in a session increases the likelihood of mechanical failures and driver errors. Teams are under no obligation to run the maximum amount of flying laps but are encouraged to submit for all three sessions even if reaching later sessions seems unlikely.

How to Submit

In your private team channel, please type !strat and then your teams name all one word (or example, !stratferrari or !stratracingpoint) and fill out the form like you see in the example below.
As an example, your submission could look something like this:
Car A
FP 1 Driver: John Smith (Main)
Quali/Race Driver: John Smith (Main)
Chassis Setup Hours- Q: 4 , R: 6
Engine Set Up - Q: +12 , R: -5
Q1 Laps: 3
Q2 Laps: 3
Q3 Laps: 2
Car B
FP 1 Driver: Terry Johns (Test)
Quali/Race Driver: Harry McKirk (Main)
Chassis Setup Hours - Q: 2 , R: 8
Engine Set Up - Q: -10 , R: +10
Q1 Laps: 1
Q2 Laps: 1
Q3 Laps: 2

2020.08.11 06:29 Snail_Forever (Partially) Explaining the Roblox Iceberg

This is a dissection and explaining of the original Roblox iceberg meme made and posted here by u/Opti101. As someone who's been here since 2008, I was surprised at just how much I was able to instantly recognize, and I wish to shed a light on it for those who might not remember or are new. There's some stuff I missed, but hopefully it's not enough that this will feel lacking.
Let's begin our dive!

Surface Level

1x1x1x1
This account in reality was created by Shedletsky to test site features, but the cryptic name has caused it to be a part of creepypasta theories since the beginning of the community, painting the account as belonging to a hacker that's waiting for just the right moment to return and ruin everything.
Part of the urban legend might have stemmed from the fact that in the early days someone had found an exploit that allowed them to inject code into games in real time. Former admin MrDoomBringer actually went into detail about how the exploit worked. The exploiter asked him to see what he had found, and made it rain head parts labelled "1x1x1x1 is coming for you!" in a Crossroads server. MrDoomBringer obviously found it hilarious, but the other players in game at the time didn't have the context and thus found it terrifying.
A neat trend in Roblox urban legends you will see as we go further is that more often than not they tend to be based in real, tangible exploiting incidents. However without an affinity for understanding how games work, most players saw them with an aura of mystique.
The Robox
The Robox is the prank that the site's staff pulled in 2019. It was allegedly a brand new console, having 8K rendering capabilities and being seemingly able to connect even to devices without wifi. On April 2nd, the Robox was made into the hat accessory you can see today.
Comment spambots
These have plagued the website since its early beginnings. There have been noteable incidents where unknown companies managed to create thousands of bots in a matter of weeks thanks to the lack of Captcha verification that used to be an issue. Nowadays they still exist, however the most common bots tend to be compromised accounts.
Fake login prompt scams
These tend to be deeply correlated with spambots. Via the promise of robux and whatnot many young, naive players fall for fake login prompts present in robux scam websites. The accounts are compromised and become part of the botnet.
jaredvaldez
By far one of the most infamous members of the community. Jared was notorious for taking an advantage of an old exploit that allowed you to gain access to copylocked games. I believe almost all of the games in his library were blatantly ripped off from other people due to that. He was a scam artist and generally unlikeable to boot. He got terminated multiple times as a result.
That said this does have a happy ending. Jared has popped back up on the internet, older and nowhere near as distasteful as he used to be. He has expressed interest in returning to the site, though I don't think he still makes Roblox videos.
John and Jane Doe
I'll be honest in that I find this one extremely obnoxious. There used to be a pre-existing urban legend behind these two accounts before clickbait youtubers came in and turned it into a terrible creepypasta.
For those who don't know, John and Jane are some of the earliest accounts ever made on the site. They go all the way back to the site's inception, since if I recall correctly, they were made for checking if login and game launching worked. I think these might be way older than 1x1x1x1 was, since when they were active the staff actually needed to join players in games so they had someone to play with.
They had the same aura of mystique as 1x1x1x1 did, in that the community saw the accounts as hackers just waiting to get their chance to return. I feel like the first wave of youtubers that covered them tried to keep this aesthetic, but it didn't take long before chucklefucks pushed it to the route of bad creepypastas. You know, those "MY GAME IS HAUUUUNTED!!!" types.
Tix Removal
This was by far one of the most infamous changes ever made to the game. Tix was basically the free currency of Roblox for the longest time. Everytime you logged in or someone visited your places you would earn tix. Almost, if not all, player-made clothing was made to be purchased in tix.
I believe the reason tix had to go was because you could convert tix into robux and viceversa. Modern times probably meant that there was a tool out there that let people exploit tix generation methods and amass some truly massive ammounts of tix, and therefore robux, as a result. Fun fact, when the retirement of tix was announced, the exchange rate absolutely TANKED as a result.

Below Sea Level

I'll be honest in that I feel this iceberg dives really quickly into barely documented territory. Lots of old Roblox content is, sadly, kind of lost media at the moment. Part of the reason modern-day John and Jane Doe shit makes me so mad is because the original urban legends have become even harder to find as a result of all the new content swamping search engines.
Keep in mind that some stuff might be just regular iceberg bs added as flavor by the original creator.
Shirts... and Pants Pants Pants
This is an old, though easy to find, promotional video for Roblox promoting the user-made aspect of, well, shirts and pants. It's extremely goofy and catchy, I definitely recommend you check out the song.
NobleDragon is a furry
This is a meme that began to circulate around 2015 when someone found out that the business/SFW Twitter account of NobleDragon was following a NSFW furry artist. The meme caught on because NobleDragon is rather infamous for abusing his admin status and frequently antagonizing members of the community such as Reuben Sim.
"Horror" music
I believe this refers to an old asset posted by the staff back in the early days. Urban legends make it sound scarier than it reportedly was.
The Cursed House
I'm pretty sure this refers to an old creepy game. I wasn't one for creepy games back in the day, though, so I can't tell you which one is this referring to.
Circle studs lawsuit
My memory of this one is rusty, but I think it was an early legal issue that Roblox faced against LEGO. Back in the day the studs in the brick parts used to be round just like in LEGO parts. This happened during a period where LEGO's patents were all expiring, culminating in the original patent expiring in 2011. As a result of this, LEGO's legal team was antagonizing toy companies that began to sell plastic brick toys, and I guess they saw Roblox's virtual bricks as part of this group.
Front page porn game hacks
This is one that I SWEAR saw myself, many other people reported it too when it allegedly happened (I can't think of the exact timeframe, but it was most likely before 2015). That said I've got no idea if what I'm thinking of is the incident the iceberg talks about or if it was something completely different. A hacker or group of hackers got into the website, I believe, and made it so inappropiate porn games got into the front page for a while. Keep in mind though that this is Roblox-tier porn, so just imagine stuff like a dummy model with two sphere parts in front of it to emulate titties. There might have been a game or two that actually displayed NSFW pictures, but I don't recall correctly.
Abandoned 2007 games
These aren't so much urban legends as legitimate lost media. Most of these old games never changed and should technically still be on the website today, however finding them has proven a challenge due to either their owners getting terminated or just having their usernames be lost to time. Roblox has a really awful search engine which hasn't lent itself towards archival in any capacity. I know there's some people here who get together and start digging around based on certain clues.
(Anyone else remember lemurboy12's Super Mario-esque places?)
Out of bounds model glitches
Again, I'm not really sure if this is referring to a specific incident, but on multiple occassions players have been able to crack games and get into places of the map that they normally wouldn't be in. I don't know if a specific glitch messed up models, I've never heard of that, but I wouldn't rule it out completely as being impossible. If anyone has the specific answer to this, please let me know.
"Honest politicians"
This is one that I genuinely have no clue what it's about. Any contributions would be a great help!
2012 April Fool's Incident
I left this one for last because it has to be, in my opinion, the best in this level of the iceberg. I can't go into much detail, and I highly recommend instead you look it up on the Roblox Wikia, but here's a quick rundown: In April 1st, 2012, a user got into the Roblox website by creating an account in a test site meant only for staff members. The user began wreaking havoc on the website, writing custom banners, messing with the accounts of some notable members of the community at the time, messing with items for sale, and creating an infamous face decal that was briefly up for sale. By far the most controversial actions commited by the user was leaking hundreds of new assets the staff had yet not made public, as well as using two puppet accounts to unban a user caught in a Limited Item scandal. The staff had to briefly shut down the site in the late hours of April 1st to sort things out and get the user out of the server.

Middle of the Iceberg

Fleskhjerta's banned models
Fleskhjerta was a popular user back in the early days of 2007-2008. If I recall correctly, he made quite a lot of popular videos back in the early days both of Roblox and YouTube. He didn't quietly exit the community, rather, his career was cut short when his Roblox account got terminated. Back in the day, Roblox worked more towards the three strike system of moderation, and Flesk was already on thin ice over having shared two of his videos in the old wiki, which contained profanity. The models part refers to the strike that got him terminated. Months after the first strikes, a staff member found an old model Flesk created, which was a standard dummy model with two cylinder pieces to resemble boobs. This model was the result of his termination.
Lost 2006-2007 clients
Again, these are more along the lines of true lost media than urban legends. These early clients were very different from the later builds, but little to no documentation has been made of them. Just like the lost 2007 games, the search for these old clients has been ongoing amongst small search parties.
Source of "uuhhh.wav" (Oof sound)
The iconic death noise wasn't made for Roblox. It was ripped from a 2000's shooter game called Messiah, with the sound file itself dating to 1999.
EnergyCell
This is an infamous individual who I can cover more in the Graphictoria incident later down the iceberg.
"John" model
This is something that I wasn't able to find information about. I'd like to assume it relates to the John Doe ordeal, but I can't say for sure since I have no context for this. It's something that I need help indentifying.
Virtual kpop groups
I think this might refer to that weird community in Instagram and Twitter of uncanny Roblox player models with realistic face decals superimposed to resemble real people. I think some people are using that weird trend to recreate groups like BTS, but thanks to the trend's uncanniness they look postively gross.
C:
This emoticon resembles the infamous face decal that was made in the 2012 April Fool's incident. I can only assume the reason it's lower on the list is that, without proper context, it looks creepier than it actually is.
Dynablocks
Dynablocks was a precursor to Roblox all the way back in 2003. This doesn't mean that Roblox is a sequel, as Dynablocks was essentially just Roblox really, REALLY way back into development. The website for Dynablocks exists, and for a while it used to redirect to Roblox, however it has been broken for a while.
Julius Cole
Another infamous scammeplace robber. He rose to infamy by having stolen 1dev2's Welcome to the Town of Robloxia. He was eventually found guilty of stealing games and models and got terminated. However, unlike Jared, Julius' presence online after termination was much more toxic. He frequently made threats and generally nasty comments aimed at the staff and promiment players in his Twitter account, which earned him a suspension. He's also known for his erratic and equally obnoxious YouTube videos. People have said that he might be a long-running troll, and I wouldn't find it surprising. However, troll or not, harrassment and threats directed at people who caught you red-handed on your bullshit is something I find deplorable. Troll or not, he doesn't deserve a second chance unlike other people in a similar situation as his.

Bottom of the Iceberg

MLP FiM: Roleplay was stolen
I have a hunch that this is so low on the iceberg due to how there's basically no information regarding it. I assume this refers to an incident where someone managed to steal a copylocked game, or some sort of sabotage during development allowed for a developer to steal the assets. Again, if anyone has more information on this, please let me know.
9/11 Rememberance hat
Back in the days of the forum, there used to be a rumor that, supposedly, the staff had created a hat for some sort of 9/11 memorial event. This was a rumor, so it might have been completely unfounded, but if it was true, it's possible the staff never released it in the fear it might have been seen as distasteful.
WONGA WONGA WONGA
This refers to a sound file that would commonly blare in games that had recently been exploited. I'm not sure in which exploiter wave this was featured in, since throughout Roblox history there's been multiple "waves" of mass exploits whenever a new tool or vulnerability is found, and each exploiter group has had its own identity. Whenever it showed up, it was most likely the signature move of an exploiter or group of exploiters.
Graphictoria controversy
Graphictoria was a free engine that was meant to emulate the feel of old Roblox versions and games. EnergyCell, the lead developer, was eventually discovered to have been a raging sociopath, and Graphictoria was revealed to have been sending log in information, which was supposed to be confidential, to a server that only he had access to without the players' consent nor knowledge. People suspected that due to his nature, he was bound to use this data for blackmail, and when he was found out he was reportedly threatening people with suicide multiple times. This is well-documented, so I highly recommend that you look up the full story for yourself.
JJ5x5's account hacked
This is something that JJ himself confirmed as being true. JJ5x5 is an old player that's most famous for his old video series back in the early days of Roblox and YouTube. JJ didn't verify his email address when he got hacked, so the hackers very quickly got access to his account.
Lost forum posts
Due to the very nature of how the forums used to work, certain posts were naturally lost to time. However, the history leading up to the complete removal of the forums led to a massive loss of content. For a while, it seemed the staff didn't know whether or not to get rid of the forums, so they instead opted to merge the forums into much more broader categories. Some forums suffered greatly when the merge happened, as they essentially got obliterated due to their low usage in comparison to the more popular ones.
David's late 80's prototype
This is an alleged prototype that David supposedly created, which would lead into DynaBlocks and then into Roblox. However, there's no real proof that this prototype actually exists. David first thought up the concept that would become Roblox in the 80's, but he never actually created a working prototype. Technology at the time wouldn't have let him create a working prototype at all, so this is pretty much just fake.
Roblox Studio pornography
This is another one I'm not 100% sure about. It might refer to the few incidents where moderation hasn't been able to catch inappropiate models and decals as they're uploaded into the public library.
Ghosts
This was a much more prevalent urban legend back in the days where the game was smaller and you were more likely to end up alone on a server. Allegedly, there's been multiple reports of people playing alone in servers, when suddenly the place they're in starts to be modified or outright exploited as if there was another player there. There were also reports of sightings of transparent player models in the distance or cryptic chat messages coming from unidentifiable users in lonely servers.
Despite being one of the more fantastical points in this iceberg, it's likely that some reports might have been true in one way or another. For one, an exploiter or developer could have decided to prank the lonely player, messing with them to give them a scare. In another way, the game could have code that either randomly triggers an event, or triggers an event after certain time has passed. In a game where we can code what happens, who's to say someone hasn't created an easter egg like this?

The Abyss

Lost Roblox bloopers
I'm pretty sure these refer to lost videos of the early days of Roblox youtubers. I know for sure there's plenty of entries I used to watch way back when that I can't find to this day. Much like the lost games and clients, the search is on.
2005 client
This is a fabled version of the client much more rare and older than the 2006/2007 clients. I don't even know if there's anyone who ever got to have them that wasn't a staff member or playtester. I don't even know if it truly exists. If it is real, I suppose we can only hope that the staff is good at keeping archives.
blockvoid():
This is another bullshit entry. There's absolutely no record of this sort of command being the focus of a Roblox urban legend, and I think the original creator of the iceberg image made it just to give the meme an air of creepiness to it. If it does turn out to be real, it might have either been a failed creepypasta, or something that genuinely caused Studio to freak out or do weird things.
MisterObvious' Discord audio files
For those not in the know, MisterObvious was a popular Roblox personality that was eventually discovered to be an extremely nasty pedophile and sexual predator, who used his fame to sexually abuse minors in his Discord server. This point most definitely references the recordings of sexually charged Discord calls that were used as evidence for his investigation. I think a censored version of them were featured in one of the first videos exposing him. It's highly likely the recordings are still circulating online, however due to their nature, I'd recommend you to not look for them.
camel_slaughter.mp4
This filename refers to a video of a camel getting its neck sliced that was spammed by an unkown user in plug.dj rooms that were created for forum threads when the forums were still up. I'm not sure if this incident was old or relatively recent, however I've seen some people claim the sound version of the clip was used in other non-Roblox games.
desdemona
Finishing with a player shrouded in mystery, desdemona is a supposed Roblox user that was known for their cryptic and disturbing forum posts. Apparently, they were responsible for the hacking of several unnamed players that frequented the threads where he popped up. There's little to no documentation about him, and the current desdemona is a player that seems completely unrelated to him (although still posted general nonsense in the forums).

And there you have it, folks! Almost all points on the iceberg explained and put into context! While I missed some stuff, I feel like Opti missed some stuff themselves. There's some obscure knowledge like ?iloveyou and the Studio viruses which I was suprised didn't get covered.
Again, if you're someone who knows about the stuff I missed, please let me know! While this is a meme, I was surprised at just how much of our spooky, hidden content actually has its roots in the truth due to the nature of the game. Only time will tell if what we know nowadays will become rumors in the future.

2020.08.10 19:17 rocconteur The Kids Database

I just got an email and I’m not sure what to do about it.
So back in the early-to-mid-90’s, I was working for this bodyshop, which is what we called the tech recruiting and staffing industry. Sometimes we referred to ourselves as the pimps and the techs as the whores. I was a sort of starting out tech. I didn’t have a degree in technology, but I had been using computers since there were home computers (hello Atari 400!) and even with my degree in the arts (my incredibly useful jazz piano degree, ha ha) I needed a job. I had a friend, Mike, who was also a tech (albeit one who actually studied at it) and he suggested I make the switch.
I didn’t know coding or development, such as it was back then – either you programmed in assembly, or c++, or if you were writing Windows applications you used Visual Basic or Studio. I didn’t know any of that. But I did know how to build computers, and troubleshoot, and use basic programs like Office, and I understood networking.
I worked a few small jobs and then got a job as a tech for a bodyshop in Philadelphia for about a year. I was dating my off again, on again girlfriend from college, and things were getting serious, and she was nagging me about getting a real job, so I ended up taking the Philadelphia one. It was my first full-time tech job. I was kinda thrown into the thick of it – the company gave me a couple of classes, then staffed me right into support jobs. The funny thing was, and this was around ’94, but I was making 35 grand a year, just as much as my girlfriend with a music teaching degree. We had met in music school. And she was pissed, sooo pissed, that my first job in an industry I had zero formal training in I was making as much as she was after getting a six-year degree.
The only formal training I had in computers was learning about usenet, going through a lot of Atari’s and then PC’s, and playing a lot of Prince of Persia.
Anyway, my second job was as a tech for an office that did tech staffing, but I wouldn’t be a tech body they sent out, I would be their in-house tech. This was a company with multiple offices, each with their own tech. Back then you’d hire just about anybody since there wasn’t a ton of certification and degrees in tech yet, so the assortment of techs this company had hired were very hit or miss. But I was good at what I did, and I learned fast, so inside of a few months I had everything working well at my first job in Parsippany, NJ. I had to commute back and forth between there and Philly and it was multiple hours both ways, which was a nightmare. Fucking route 280 is the worst.
Eventually I made a pitch to be the head tech over the other techs, and ha ha, instead they just fired the other techs and made me the only tech. That also sucked for a few months, but eventually I got those offices all running well too, and then we got them all networked, and by then it was the mid-90’s. I was basically the CIO in everything except name, but that was fine. I was also getting paid a ton of money, which everybody was in tech back then, which was also fine.
By now the company had grown quite a bit and so I was allowed to staff up. I had this great German guy named Bas (I think he was German) who did a lot of the remote management stuff, and another tech named Nicky who was the lone Apple guy, and Owen who did some mainframe support (the company still supported some old mainframe software they wrote), and then… then I hired Carlos.
Immediately I knew I had probably made a bad decision. Carlos was a decent tech, but he was the very definition of shifty. He always looked paranoid, and always acted like he, well, wasn’t high on something but had been high on something a few minutes before and now was in the coming down and miserable phase of it. I got to wishing he would just be high all of the time. I knew that I could probably fire him, but I was trying to prove myself as a manager sinceI was bucking for the company to make me an actual CIO, and I didn’t want a bad hire on my record. He was getting his tickets done on time, and except for the occasional argument (he had a bad temper,) things continued. Sort of.
Remember the shifty part? He was always working on these deals. He wanted to run an online business off the company’s internet connection. He wanted to set up an import/export business with people he knew in Columbia (he was Hispanic, and I never asked him his origin.) A lot of the business he talked about were borderline scams. Then for a while he was saying he knew some guys who wanted to get into porn. This all happened at work, with him asking if I was interested. I always laughed and said no. I was making like three times his salary anyway. Any besides, and I told him this, getting involved with people all the wrong side of shifty business usually got you involved with people far, far more problematic than yourself.
Finally, one day he approached me in the bullpen we all worked in and asked if I’d look at a database he was writing. I had been programming in Microsoft Access for a while, so I figured sure. I popped over to his desk to take a look. I really wasn’t much more than a spreadsheet – just a couple of linked tables. But one of the tables was called “kids”. I felt a funny moment seeing that, but he laughed and explained.
Carlos said that he knew some people trying to set up overseas adoption agencies who needed help making a database of the children – that they would share the database with the agencies in the US, and then the agencies could use this to help couples in the US find the kind of kids they were looking for. It was all very matter of fact and the explanation made sense, I guess. And, the fact he was so up front about it I guess smoothed over any weird feelings I had at the time.
The kids table had only a few columns – things like birth date, race, medical conditions, hair color, eye color, sex, and so forth. He had a few dozen data entries in it. “Dummy data, for testing,” Carlos said.
I helped him fix the queries and table linkages and didn’t think much about it after that. But Carlos started to act shiftier. He stopped talked about other scams, and he got crankier and more difficult to deal with. He started showing up late. He looked like he wasn’t getting much sleep.
So: I needed to fire this guy. And, I’m not ashamed to say, I started rooting around in his stuff. I checked his work email (yes, we sysadmins read your email – you shouldn’t put anything in company email.) Looked at his files. One of his emails stuck out – it was him emailing some kind of nameless sysadmin explaining that he was having a hard time adding the new fields to the database. There was also a reply, saying that “you opened the database Carlos, you have to complete the order and make the changes.”
I took a look at the attached database. The database had expanded a bit – now there were around a hundred entries. The number of data fields had expanded too. Blood type. Location of birth. Medical conditions of parents. Again, the kind of things you’d expect in an adoption database. The kids were all young too – no one was about seven years old.
And now there were pictures. Most of the pics were not what you would expect though – not nice pics of a sleeping child, or a kid standing at attention for a picture. Most of the pics looks a little too casual – like taken from the side, or from a few dozen feet away, that sort of thing. He even had used some shots of people’s kids I knew, again, for dummy data I assume. There was a shot of my boss Jimmy’s granddaughter from when she came into the office for “bring your daughter to work day.”
And I mean, it was weird, but nothing fireable. Not yet.
A few weeks went by and Carlos kept getting worse. Now he’d have terse calls on his cell in the office, in the stairwell, the bathrooms. One time he got a call when he was in a stall and must have thought he was alone. He only exchanged a couple of words with the caller – said no, said he couldn’t do it because he didn’t shit where he ate, then a long silence, then a couple of yessirs. Then he hung up, and then he started quietly crying in the cell. This super macho dude in his 40’s at least, crying in the stall. After a minute he cleaned up and went back to work. I was pretty unnerved.
As it turned out I never did fire him, because shortly thereafter I jumped ship for a startup. It was ’99, everybody else thought they could be a millionaire, so I did too. My friend Mike had moved to a new company, so I followed him. They were trying to make a new version of Amazon but that dealt with weird media like microfiche and newspapers instead of just books (back when Amazon was mostly about books.) They lasted for a year or so, then they went belly up and everybody got fired. My stock was worthless. Then nobody was hiring. I drifted around for a year, got divorced, lost my house, lived with my sister and her two newborns for a while. Tried to find a new job.
At one point I called the guys back at my old company where I was the almost-CIO to see if they had any openings. They had downsized a little, just like everyone else, and weren't hiring. I asked about Carlos and they said he had left a few weeks after I had. But the really tragic news was that a few months after I left, Jimmy’s granddaughter had gone missing. No real leads and no witnesses. It had happened at the playground near her daycare. She wouldn’t have just left with a stranger.
That led me to wonder about Carlos again. And, on an idle whim, I went back through my notes and emails I had saved from back then and I found Carlos’ public email credentials (yes, we admins save all your credentials whenever you give them to us, you shouldn’t do that either.) I logged in quick to take a look. His mailbox had never been removed. Interestingly, I didn’t see any emails. It looked like he had deleted all of them. All there was were a bunch of emails in his inbox with the KIDS.MDB file attached, which was the database, sent from the same sysadmin.
I took a look at a copy from right after I left. It looked similar. There were a few more fields, and now the fields were getting weirder. They had stuff like favorite foods. A column called “Nightmares” that was full of simple “y/n” data. One column called “Soap Used.” But the real kicker was now there were addresses, and all the addresses were in various countries in South America, but a few were in the US which didn’t make any sense. And there was a sort of status indicator field, I guess to track the status of the child. It had stuff you would expect from an adoption agency – Interviewing, for example. But it also had results I didn’t get. Some kids were “Rejected”, and not for any reason I could fathom. Some kids were listed as “Age Further”. Some were listed as “Fulfilled.” And a few were listed as “Requested.”
Jimmy’s granddaughter was listed as “Requested.”
So here we are today. I hadn’t thought much about any of this, chalking it all up to a weird dude and not wanting to pursue it further. I never heard anything else about Carlos – his LinkedIn and web presence just sort of cuts off a year after he left the old company. But a couple of days ago I got an email from the same sysadmin. I had never given them my email, but there it was.
Just an email with the KIDS.MDB file in it and a single sentence: “Reply for shipping details.”
I opened it and the database was the same, except there was a lot more entries. A lot more “Fulfilled” results. A lot of entries marked Fulfilled that had been Requested in the earlier one, including Jimmy’s granddaughter. I also noted that there were a few new fields, included “Priority”. Some of the kids were really high on the priority list.
I what I usually do as a tech – I traced the domain it emailed from. It took some finding and some poking around – a domain owned by a small company, that was registered by another company, and so forth. I never found anything that made sense for an adoption agency. The only real business I found was a really famous, high-end steakhouse in Virginia hosted on the same servers as the business sending the email.
I didn’t answer the email and deleted them, but today I got another one which led me to write this. Same email – database file, reply for details.
But when I checked the database, my sisters two daughters were listed. Both were status “Pending”.
I’m thinking I should change my email address.

Race Weekend Strategy Submissions

User Activity
All team owners are checked for activity after each race weekend. From the commencement of the season, team owners that are inactive will receive the following penalties.
Any failure to submit a race weekend strategy will also incur a loss of 8 setup hours on each car.
A team owner can give prior notices for inactivity, for example a holiday or a known loss of internet connections. In such a case the team boss will not receive warnings. The notices have to be given by the team owner themselves to the FRL Presidents, others cannot do that for him/her! Also absences need to be reasonable in time and reason!
All warnings and strikes will be reset back to zero at the start of each season.

Submission deadline

All strategies must be received by 11:59pm Sydney, Australia time on the Thursday prior to Free Practice on the Friday.

Race Strategy

Prior to the date of the Practice sessions, you can submit a race weekend strategy, which will allow you to replace your main drivers with Test or Youth drivers for Free Practice, as well as focus on your team's car setup for both Qualifying and Race.
Free Practice
In Free Practice 1 you can rotate your drivers to get an understanding of their true abilities. For example, you may wish to run your Test Driver instead of your retiring Main Driver to judge his or her abilities to your other current Main Driver.
This is also an opportunity to give your youth drivers a run, but they can only participate on race weekends that don’t clash with Formula D race weekends. Bare in mind that Free Practice 1 & 2 is a gauge of your cars race trim whilst Free Practice 3 is run in qualifying trim.
Qualifying and Race Setup Points
There are two areas of the car for each user to set up, engine mode and chassis work. Higher BHP in the engine mode will increase a cars top speed whereas more set up time invested in chassis work will increase overall speed.
The user can spend between -40 and +40 BHP in both qualifying and the race for each car each weekend. At the end of the season teams will be charged 0.01m per BHP over zero for each car. Teams will be advised how much they have spent in total per car each race.
Users will also have a total of 143 hours of setup to spend on each car for either Qualifying or the Race for each weekend with a maximum of 8 hours per Qualifying and Race sessions (a maximum of 16 per race weekend). Teams can also upgrades their Mechanics Training Facility under factories to increase the effectiveness of chassis set up.
Once a team has exhausted their hours on a particular car, they cannot submit anymore setup hours but teams are also under no obligation to use all of their allocation.
If you sub out one of your main drivers for a Test or Youth Driver, they will have their setup points allocation halved, but it will still cost your the same amount of setup points. For example, if you allocate 8 hours each for both Qualifying and Race, but sub out the Main Driver for a Youth Driver, your setup increase will only be 4 and 4.
A driver must drive the car they have driven the most in that season.
Qualifying Run Times
Each car may set up to three flying laps in Q1 and Q2 and two flying laps in Q3. Each user is to choose the number of flying laps in each session ranging from 1 to 3 in the session for Q1 and Q2, and between 1 and 2 minutes in Q3.
The more laps each driver runs in a session increases the likelihood of mechanical failures and driver errors. Teams are under no obligation to run the maximum amount of flying laps but are encouraged to submit for all three sessions even if reaching later sessions seems unlikely.

How to Submit

In your private team channel, please type !strat and then your teams name all one word (or example, !stratferrari or !stratracingpoint) and fill out the form like you see in the example below.
As an example, your submission could look something like this:
Car A
FP 1 Driver: John Smith (Main)
Quali/Race Driver: John Smith (Main)
Chassis Setup Hours- Q: 4 , R: 6
Engine Set Up - Q: +12 , R: -5
Q1 Laps: 3
Q2 Laps: 3
Q3 Laps: 2
Car B
FP 1 Driver: Terry Johns (Test)
Quali/Race Driver: Harry McKirk (Main)
Chassis Setup Hours - Q: 2 , R: 8
Engine Set Up - Q: -10 , R: +10
Q1 Laps: 1
Q2 Laps: 1

2020.08.04 04:30 a-eo-lus “we lived in a parallel, two different lines that will never meet”

I met a guy from California a month ago on instagram.
Oh, I originally met him on a dating app called OkCupid. He was nice at first, but soon as I told him that I’m not from US, he told me that I was just wasting his time.
I felt bad. I deactivated my account and stopped using the app because of the harsh words he said. It broke my heart and at that moment, I realized that I can never find someone who can complete me, no, not from their country cause I’m not belong there or I’m not good enough or I’m a loser.
Or maybe, it’s just that it’s not for me.
I remembered he provided his IG so after a month (I met him in May), I decided to follow him on IG, using my dummy account. An account intended for animes with a profile picture of an anime character.
That was June 20.
He was curious who the hell I am. He chatted me and ask if I know him. I said no, just random follows. He was so flirt. Calls me cutie, beautiful aaaaah. My God. I should roast him like what he did to me on OKC.
After several days, we started talking, video calls, and chats. We don’t talk that much cause I can’t say a word when he’s around. And everytime, I feel nervous, anxious and awkward. He might think I’m weird. But he’s still nice. God, talking to a foreigner is really different from talking to someone from your country.
At first, it’s not my intention to get close to him. I just wanna stalk him on IG and criticize how racist he is.
But sometimes, things don’t go according to what’s planned.
I started talking to him more and more. I started to open up things and stepped out of my comfort zones, and those walls I built, I took them down and came to his world full of mysteries.
He told me how lonely he is cause he doesn’t have a girlfriend. (Pathetic) And American girls preferred to date an asshole who hurts them. Sometimes I secretly laugh at him cause he really sucked and what I know is, all guys are the same.
But I know, his feelings are valid. He is longing for someone. He is incomplete. Well, to be honest, it’s a human nature to crave for something or to feel that something is missing.
I also feel the same way.
Day by day, I missed him.
One time, he introduced me to 2 girls in a cafe. (Through videocall) I can’t breath, why does it really hurts. I got jealous for no reason and made my day so bad. I ignored him and didn’t talk to him for two days.
But he called me and said it was his friends and they had a boyfriend. I feel relieved. I smiled at him, again. He told me that he was having a bad day. So I stayed awake to be with him and listen to his rants. He opened up things about his religion, beliefs and how it is to live in America. He even converted my currency to USD while we were discussing things that he can buy when he come here.
The moment I knew, I was thinking of him and smiling like an idiot.
Is it really possible to like someone who is world’s away from you?
Love can occur in different ways, they said.
I totally understand that we’re not in the same book. I was just someone who from the internet, far from him, different from him, not for him.
I might like this person but I still don’t know. I’m still trying to evaluate my feelings cause I don’t want to invest too much to someone who’s not for me.
I don’t want to get used to persons who’s gonna disappear in my life too.
But I wonder what he think of me. Jesus, is he even thinking about me?
Now I’m here, typing this text, head over heals and laughing at myself. Imagine the plan I created vs. what the hell happened. Ye, it sucks but I guess, it’s not bad at all. :)

2020.08.02 05:57 irongiant33 TIFU by unknowingly sexting my parents

Weird title, I know, but bear with me here. My girlfriend and I date long distance so it is fairly common for us to go months without seeing each other. As any long distance couple probably knows, you find creative ways to stay in touch and let your significant other know how much you care. We have done everything from ordering each other surprise dinners to the standard Showgoers date on Netflix. Thanks to Jeff Bezos and the Amazon teams' intuitive invention of Alexa and it's thorough distribution via Prime Day Echo Dots, my girlfriend came into possession of such device.
Being the more tech savvy in the relationship, I went about setting up her echo dot when she was gifted one some two years ago. To be fair, I don't remember whether or not the Echo Dot was always compatible with the Alexa App but that's where this story gets interesting. In the process of setting up the Echo Dot, I was tinkering around with it's functionality via the Alexa App and I found out it was possible to send messages via text to the Alexa App which would announce the message to all compatible devices. Perfect, I thought. This will be my next way to creatively surprise my girlfriend by pretending I was there with her in the room when in reality I was many miles away.
It started innocently enough, as anything does. I would send messages like "I love you" and "I hope you have a great day today!" which she enjoyed. But you know what else we both enjoyed? Yeah you all know. The messages progressively got less and less innocent. The messages were so guilty that I would go as far to test what words Alexa didn't even have the audacity to pronounce. Words that I wouldn't have the audacity to post to the internet. On an anonymous forum. We enjoyed laughing at the words Alexa would/wouldn't pronounce or how she would pronounce them, but it was nothing really more than a source of entertainment.
It turned out to be a source of torture. Unbeknownst to us, the "announce" function on Alexa notifies ALL compatible Alexa devices...not just your girlfriend's. So the Alexa that was connected to my mother's TV while she watched reality dramas as she fell asleep at night? Yeah that show was temporarily paused to display and announce racy text messages. My father's Echo Dot that he used to drop in on our dogs while he was at work? Yeah that woke him up in the middle of the night to the tune of something out of Fifty Shades of Grey.
The worst of all is that this continued to go on FOR AT LEAST A YEAR until today when my brother texted me a picture of a screen that said "why is your a$$ so dummy thicc?" asking why such a message appeared from me on his TV screen at 11pm.
Who knows why my parents didn't tell me earlier. All I know is I have been unintentionally sexting them all this time and I can't bear the thought of looking them in the eyes and thinking that those eyes also gazed upon the dirtiest words their own son could muster.
TL;DR: I didn't know the Alexa App announced to all compatible devices, including my parents' devices. I proceeded to send sexts (sexy texts) to my long distance girlfriend to make her day a little better.

2020.07.31 00:33 akshaydunakhe [Offer] I will create a beautiful website for you starting at $60. This includes up to 5 webpages (mobile friendly), SSL security certificate, 2 business email id and a logo (if required)

When I read the book Brand Aid by Larry Linne, it truly opened my eyes on how much your digital brand affects your business. Whether you are meeting up with a potential client, an employer, or someone you met from a dating site, these people are going to google you.
You are probably thinking oh don't worry I am hidden from google searches you can't find me on there. This is bad and you are going to let other people create assumptions about you and your reputation. You are going to look like you are outdated and don't know how to use technology.
By having a strong online presence you can build trust and credibility. Clients are way more likely to meet with you, are more open in conversations, and even bring up things they found about you by doing research about you online. This is a huge competitive advantage.
For most businesses, a website based on WordPress fulfills all of these above-mentioned needs. And that's the reason why over 30% of the websites on the internet are powered by WordPress.
I am relatively new in the world of business. I am running my web design agency as I am completing my University education. I am young and naive in many ways when compared to seasoned entrepreneurs.
By any means, I am NOT a top dog in the website design industry. If anything I am an underdog.
But here's the good part, because I am not a top dog, you as a customer matter to me. If you hire me I can't afford to lose you, I can't take the work that you assign me for granted. As a result, I have got no other option but to work the hardest on the work assigned to me. That is the only way for me to earn your loyalty and I take it very seriously.
And that means a lot to me, and I hope it means a lot to you as much as it means to me.
I am gonna make sure you are served properly, at the highest possible level, so if that's something that is important to you, I will highly recommend you do business with me.
Below are 8 websites I have built for various types of businesses on my local computer to showcase my craft.{They are built with dummy text(Lorem Ipsum) and dummy content}
The purpose of these sites is to display my skills, talent, and credibility and earn my loyalty from you. I hope you like them.
1) Clothing and accessories website
2) Restaurant’s Website:
3) Dentist’s Website:
4) Interior Designer’s Website:
5) Construction Company’s Website:
6) Spa Centre’s Website:
7) Real estate website:
8) Cosmetic stores Ecommerce Website:
In 2019, more than half of the traffic worldwide(52.2% to be precise) was generated through mobile phones. If your website is not mobile-friendly, you are missing out on lots of potential business.
But that won't be an issue you need to worry about because I will take care of it.
All these websites have subtle animations and are fully responsive which means they look good on any screen(be it mobiles, desktops, and even tablets).
What are you getting for $60:
  1. up to 5 web pages on your website
  2. SSL security certificate (costs about $5/month on GoDaddy)
  3. 2 business email id (costs $5/month for one id on GoDaddy)
  4. a Logo (if you don’t have any)
Bonuses:

Any advanced features can also be added to your website for an additional fee (such as a payment gateway, booking system, WooCommerce integration, extra webpage, a community forum, etc ).


Get ahead of your competition and set yourself up for success today!
