2020.09.29 17:56 fitchaber10 7 weeks NC! I (31m) don't want him back, but am struggling to get over the anger I now hold towards him for what he did. Help?

Quick recap: Ex (male) dumped me on my birthday after taking me out to dinner and texting me at midnight that day saying he wanted to be the first to wish me happy birthday. Breakup excuses were all dumb: "cant give you what you deserve" "i have issues with commitment" "i wish things were the way they were before" etc etc etc. He wanted to be friends, I said no.
Fast forward 7 weeks, I literally do not want him back at all. We haven't spoken at all and it has been total NC. I would not be his friend if he came back today or ten years from now. In my opinion, you don't treat "friends" the way he treated me. I have blocked him everywhere except his phone number. Have not texted or called him since the breakup.
My issue now is that I hold this deep anger and resentment to him for what I believe was a lie our entire time together. He said all this bs about how he wanted us to be together forever, we would be each others last boyfriend, etc. I took him at his word. Then the whole thing changes. Taking my bday into consideration too, I just really am totally disgusted by the man. I don't want to date him. I don't want to sleep with him. I don't want to interact with him ever again. I just feel so mad that he treated me the way he did. Probably because I always try to treat others respectfully and I feel like he did what he did just to cause maximum carnage and drama.
Anyone experience anything like this? Any tips?

2020.09.29 17:54 thelizziepants First time dating after separating 18 months ago

Background: I am 35(f) and was married to my high school sweetheart. We split last year and I hadn’t dated anyone else yet. I was taking the time to heal. I didn’t have sex with someone other than my husband for the first time until recently.
I met a 29(m) doctor and things are more serious with him than anyone I have talked to yet. I stayed at his place so far 3 times and the 4th time will be this week.
A few things.
1) He is much younger than me so I am constantly self conscious that he could find someone younger and more attractive
2) He is a doctor. He is saving lives. He is hyper focused on that. He is a workaholic. His schedule is extremely busy. Hanging out at his place is the easiest way to spend time together but I am afraid that things won’t get more serious and he will just see me as a hookup.
3) He is Indian-American and I am white. I feel like culturally there are a lot of differences and I am self conscious about this. I have barely dated and now there is a whole other level of trying to figure out some of our differences.
Any tips or advice would be helpful!

2020.09.29 17:41 heythereions Moving on from a mutual breakup... how??

Hello everyone! I will try my best to keep this short!
TL;DR how do you move on and heal from a breakup that was mutual and you still deeply care about that person?
Background: Me, 23 Female. Recent international student college grad (allowed to have 90 days of unemployment before I have to leave - I have a job right now but its a risky situation if I lose it)
Him, 26 Male. American National. In the military.
I met my ex-partner at the very start of quarantine and we started dating immediately after talking for a few weeks. I've spent a large chunk of my time with him the past few months as classes were online and I lost all of my internships! At the start of the relationship, we both knew that it wouldn't last long term because he was moving cross country (military) and I might have to leave the country if I don't land a job post-graduation. We decided to end things in September but as time passed, I guess we both fell way too deep into this relationship. It's also particularly hard because in that few months of being together we barely fought, agreed on every single topic (we also talked about kids, finances, location, parents - mainly because we were considering distance for a short period of time), lived together for about 3 weeks to a month, met each other's friends, and etc!
We decided to end things mainly because we were both very rational and knew that if we pushed it any further, it will end on bad terms. The risk with me not being an American (I have a job now) and him having to move every couple of years is something we both considered deeply before making the decision. We considered all possible scenarios but knew ending it is truly the best option.
We had our last weekend together and said our goodbyes. I guess I'm asking for help on how to deal with the pain. I have 0 hate or anger towards him and I am struggling to get over the fact that I will never see him or speak to him again. I know most people will say to pick up a hobby or spend time with close friends but that has been hard since everything I love to do is outdoors (everything is still closed or it's too smoky) and most of my friends moved away. I wish I could snap my fingers and forget about him but that is clearly not the case!
Thank you in advance for all the advice & helpful tips! :)

2020.09.29 17:39 WorkUnderProgress 17 year old here, should I be visiting these forums to heightmaxx, as they call it?

So, I am 172 cm (5'8") and want to reach atleast 6'1" because if I have the chance to maximize my potential in a parameter in life then why the hell not?
So I go and search "heightmaxx" on google and a forum showed up with tips and threads, I opened a few and read the replies by others. The thing is that everyone there looks DEFEATED af, like they are all on the verge of suicide and keep using the word cope for everything, I am still unsure of what it means in what context.
And I had read somewhere on TRP to not visit incel forums because you yourself might turn into an incel. I dont wanna be an incel, I almost became an incel during my anger phase when I discovered TRP. But are these guys incels? I dont exactly know because their forum is not called incel or anything. I am trying to refrain from naming the forum because I dont want to promote anything.
So, I have come here to ask whether I should explore this forum more to look for heightmaxxing tips because I kinda consider you all my elder brothers. You can ask for the forum name in DM if you want to check it out.
Also, the main issue is that I am from India and most of the tips are like "take this hormone, inject this and that". This is not the norm in India and I dont want to inject anything in my body either but I have seen a lot of users on this forum with the term "currycel" in their names and that means they are obviously Indians and probably older than me, so I am very tempted to make an account and message these experienced Indian guys for help, especially regarding heightmaxxing and TRP tactics in India because the dating/FWB/sex culture is a bit different to the West.
I have saved the forum links so that I can visit it if you guys think that its okay to visit such forums.

2020.09.29 17:10 sinfry Crazy acid trip harm reduction planning.

Ladies and Gentlemen I wanted to make this post here as I know this sub Reddit is EVERYTHING drugs rather than trying to post it in a more specific one like LSD or psychedelics.
To start off I want to list the drugs I plan to be taking in combination with the acid. And why I plan to be taking them.
I have never done all these drugs together at once before, the reason for the mdma is to basically guide my trip in a direction of amazing vibes. I want to feel overwhelming happiness and genuine care for the people around me. The nitrous is to test the distortion of visuals and music while tripping, let's keep in mind all 4 of these drugs affect how you hear music in different ways. And of course the marijuana to make me comfortable, relaxed and to take care of any come down I may feel from the MDMA.
The setting: In my house, with my roommate as my trip sitter. Hes highly experienced in tripping him self with shrooms, dmt, lsd, etc and he is a life long friend of mine. We do not plan to leave the house, Christmas lights are hung around the ceiling and tv will be there for music.
The time: I plan to take the acid around 10am to 11am fully sober. 3 hours into it I will try nitrous oxide and note the differences, I will also have swallowed 0.1 of MDMA at the 3 hour mark as well to experience the come up during the 4 hour mark of the trip. Once tripping on mdma and LSD I will continue to do more nitrous and note the difference compared to without Molly and without acid. From there I plan to start incorporating weed and once again writing down how the 4 are working with each other.
The preparation: Be fully sober the 48 hours before tripping. (including weed, this way weed will do more to me during the trip). Eat nutritional foods, take vitamins including B12 supplements (n2o) Drink 64oz of water minimum each day from 72 hours before the date I do this (Molly).
I will have the entire day of the trip and the following day completely free from work or plans.
I will not be conducting this experiment until sometime in October when I have the time and pass my drug test for my job.
Please feel free to give your opinions, your advice on what I should do differently etc. If you don't think I should do this please state why. This is fully for research purposes on how each drug changes music with different combinations and with all of them combined. I am posting here for harm reduction tips.

2020.09.29 17:09 apo8828402 I can't upgrade from 4.11~rc1 to 4.11.

I try 4.11~rc1 via automatic upgrade from 4.10 and all went fine. When new stabile release go out I try to upgrade but not success. When I try:
sudo tails-upgrade-frontend-wrapper
I got: Prototype mismatch: sub Tails::IUK::Frontend::assert ($;$) vs none at /uslocal/share/perl/5.28.1/Tails/IUK/Frontend.pm line 33. The system is up-to-date
When I browse to tails upgrade directory I see 4.11~rc1 to 4.11 .iuk file, but because some upgrade bug it don't start. I guess that is long stand bug because I remembered that I had same issue when I tried 4.0rc1 or 2 and can't upgrade to stabile release after. I'm ended to made new system from scratch.
When goggled I got only this link:
https://lists.autistici.org/message/20200413.190500.358fa1ce.en.html
with same issue at 4.5 rc1 to 4.5 and no answer or some useful tip.
At the end I try to manually download .iuk file and upgrade from it locally from this "install an IUK" guide:
https://tails.boum.org/contribute/design/incremental_upgrades/
but I stuck and find that is too complex for my Linux knowledge level.
Have any advice except wait for next stabile and try then?

2020.09.29 17:02 C0C01821 Coco’s LDR tips & tricks for forever happiness!

Every relationship is different and has its own healthy tidbits of advice, these are just what works for me in mine! Thought I would share, please comment yours so we can have a great flow of ideas
A few different things ‘we’/I do to keep a healthy LDR:
  1. Always text good morning & goodnight, no matter what, it takes little effort, but goes a long way to better the start of your day and end a potentially long one.
  2. Any little “belly” feeling we bring up instantly, if your partner says something and your belly gets that weird feeling where you don’t feel good...bring it up! You feel for a reason and give your partner the benefit of doubt to reassure you before jumping to emotional conclusions.
  3. Keeping each other your best friend, your significant other should be the person you can cry to, confide in and rejoice with. If you are finding yourself wanting to keep secrets, hide your feelings or not share the good things-review the reasons why you feel this way (I once did myself).
  4. Understand the difference between chemistry and compatibility. Chemistry is the physical instant and non-physical things that attract you to your partner. Compatibility is when your hearts and heads are on the same page, your future desires and values are corresponding. (I say this because, I’ve dated guys that I had strong chemistry with, so I assumed we had compatibility too. Sometimes we feel such intense chemistry that we think we are compatible too.)
  5. “Lust isn’t love”, every moment isn’t going to be exciting, sexy, intense and passionate. But if you love each other, every moment will be loving, caring, listened to and well received. (I have mostly always been in lust first relationships, so when I met my LDR and he respected me and cared for me, I was honestly quite unsure of how I felt. Lust first relationship are the ones that maybe have high highs and low lows, it feels really good and then really bad, a roller coaster of emotions. This kind of relationship was something I normalized in the past until I found my boyfriend (our relationship is like a nice bike ride—less like a roller coaster).
  6. Figure out each other’s love languages, something so important to do (Google it and take the test)! This will help you understand how he/she needs to be given love and nudge them on how you need to be loved.
  7. If something doesn’t feel right, maybe in your talking habits or in responses-don’t automatically think it’s about you, before you jump to a conclusion, ask your partner “how are you?”...I can’t tell you how many times I’ve felt like my boyfriend was a little off that day, maybe he didn’t text me good morning (like he usually does) or something different...and I pulled myself together and I think, “how is he, maybe he’s had a bad day at work, having issues with a friend or a family member, maybe he is sad about the distance too.” Ask, ask, ask, it’s usually not about us, this could lead to having a conversation about the root of a problem, rather than pointing a finger at yourself without asking.
  8. Do you fall in love with them more and more everyday? I know I fall in love with my boyfriend more everyday, because everyday I learn something new about him. We are constantly growing our internal dictionaries about each other. Try this: I started making up these games. I ask him 6 questions (If you were to keep one item from your childhood, what would it be? Would you rather live in a RV or on a sailboat? Who are your best 3 friends and why?) ANYTHING...then we both answer the questions for ourselves and we both answer the questions for each other and send out answers at a certain time. Doing this has helped me understand what he thinks I want, while it shows him what I actually want/like. Then from here, we will have a deeper discussion about how wrong we were or maybe how surprisingly right we were!
  9. DREAM, dream with your partner for a better future, creative ideas about a house you two want one day, and fun things you will do next time you see each other. Stay positive, stay futuristic and put your wants and hope into fruition.
  10. Love Letters- I write my boyfriend letters/make him doodles, maybe once a week or more. I understand this isn’t possible for every couple. I often don’t sent the letters in that moment. I will date/time stamp and write everything I am feeling, maybe the things I’m not ready to share or maybe something I’m excited about and want to wait for him to see in my handwriting. My boyfriend loves this, when I come to visit him, I actually notice he keeps them on his night stand because he likes something tangible to hold and read, it makes him feel closer to me along with the idea that I took time to write something he could have have forever. (This is the way he likes to receive love, and I like to show it — we found this out by “learning our love languages”— while I’ve been writing this, I actually just got a text from him saying, “These letters mean everything” haha!)
  11. Don’t hold back, life is too short, we are not given tomorrow, heck we aren’t give the next 30 seconds. Say how you feel, feel how you feel and when you think of your special person tell them! Give that extra little “Hey, I like you”, maybe it’s not for them, maybe it’s for you. You should wake up and go to sleep knowing you are doing your best to show someone the sweetness in your heart—-relationships are work, you want results? you want forever? Then you have to constantly work and tune your way of speaking and recognize each other’s efforts.
Hope one of my little tips helps a LDR today! Xoxo - Coco

2020.09.29 16:59 harmoniousradiance Questions: Mexico, Cannabis, Pregnancy, Hair Loss

Hi friends! My surgery date is scheduled for November 9 and I couldn't be more excited. But I also have some questions leading up to the procedure.
  1. I'm traveling alone to Mexico Bariatric Center in Tijuana. Does anyone have experience at this facility? Or experience in general re: undergoing the procedure alone in a foreign country?
  2. How long before surgery should I stop cannabis use? (I'm an everyday user and was planning on quitting 2-weeks prior.)
  3. My husband and I are hoping to start a family in the next couple years. (Of course, waiting the recommended 18-mo post-surgery to try conceiving.) Can any other new moms or newly pregnant women share their experiences, specifically regarding making sure the fetus receives adequate nutrition and calories?
  4. My vanity has me worrying about hair loss after surgery. Beyond Biotin, are there any miracle supplements or tips I can use to slow the loss?
Thank you in advance!

2020.09.29 16:50 EnigmaticSoul Array of scriptblocks for Select-Object

Hello!
So I've been attempting to create an array of scriptblocks to pass to Select-Object. My attempt looked something like this:
$searcher = [ADSISearcher]'' $searcher.SearchRoot = [ADSI]("LDAP://DC=domain,DC=com") $searcher.SearchScope = "Subtree" $searcher.PageSize = 1000 $searcher.Filter = '(&(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=user)(objectSid=*)(!(sAMAccountType:1.2.840.113556.1.4.804:=3))(!(userAccountControl:1.2.840.113556.1.4.804:=2048))(whenCreated>='+(Get-Date -Format "yyyyMMddHHmmss.f'Z'" -Hour 0 -Minute 00)+'))' $results = $searcher.FindAll() $propertyList = @("employeeId", "givenName", "sn", "samAccountName", "mail", "telephoneNumber", "physicalDeliveryOfficeName") $propertyExpressions = @() $propertyList %{ $propertyExpressions += @{name="$_"; expression = {$_.Properties.Item("$_")[0]}} } $results Select-Object -Property $propertyExpressions 
The idea here is that if someone wants to add/remove properties, they only have to do it in one place, avoiding the need to have this:
$results Select-Object -Property @{name="employeeId"; expression = {$_.Properties.Item("employeeId")[0]}}, @{name="givenName"; expression = {$_.Properties.Item("givenName")[0]}}, @{name="sn"; expression = {$_.Properties.Item("sn")[0]}}, @{name="samAccountName"; expression = {$_.Properties.Item("samAccountName")[0]}}, @{name="mail"; expression = {$_.Properties.Item("mail")[0]}}, @{name="telephoneNumber"; expression = {$_.Properties.Item("telephoneNumber")[0]}}, @{name="physicalDeliveryOfficeName"; expression = {$_.Properties.Item("physicalDeliveryOfficeName")[0]}} 
I know that there is obviously a problem with the line:
$propertyExpressions += @{name="$_"; expression = {$_.Properties.Item("$_")[0]}} 
as I need the first and third instance of "$_" to be expanded when building the array, but the second instance needs to be literal so that it is expanded by SELECT-OBJECT itself. I tried:
 $propertyExpressions += @{name="$($_)"; expression = {$_.Properties.Item("$($_)")[0]}} 
but that doesn't work either.
Any tips would be most appreciated!

2020.09.29 16:36 Pbadger8 Faction Spotlight: Why you should play Cao Cao

Faction Spotlight: Why you should play Cao Cao
Following u/Iamnothereorthere 's suggestion, I am going to try and do a spotlight on all the faction leaders, briefly touching on what makes them interesting and some of the ways you can get invested playing them. Might as well start with Cao Cao himself since I recently started a new campaign with 'em to try out the changes.
https://preview.redd.it/poov43f2e3q51.png?width=1024&format=png&auto=webp&s=cc9414b1a01b201b80a9107c02c92427d8f352b1
Who am I? You're the smartest man in the room, that's who. As the 'Hero of Chaos', you start smack dab in the middle of China surrounded by tough opponents... but you know what? You can handle them. You can play them all off of one another and come out on top. You have the devil's own luck and you always gamble big. The good news is that you're counting cards too.
Cao Cao starts with three traits; Suspicious, Ambitious, and Dutiful. Remember that last one, because you're not like the tyrant Dong Zhuo. You're here to bring order to chaos- the opinions of lesser men be damned. Ask not the sparrow how an eagle soars!
So what are my goals? Cao Cao began as a fugitive, fleeing for his life from the tyrant Dong Zhuo after a failed assassination attempt. His gambles didn't always pay off but he always survived. At the battle of Puyang, Lu Bu tapped his helmet and asked him, "Where is Cao Cao!?" The mighty warrior didn't recognize the very man he was trying to kill. Time and time again, loyal officers like Dian Wei and Cao Ang gave their lives to protect Cao Cao. Though he surmounted against unbelievable odds, it all came at a cost. The bodies piled up at his feet- impeccable warriors, good friends, and sons alike.
Although considered to be the peerless strategist of his age, Cao Cao ultimately failed to unify China, being defeated at the battle of Chi Bi in 208 AD and prolonging the bloodshed for another 70 years. If you can actually unify China, you'll have beaten the man himself and averted this tragic fate. But... if you can save his son Cao Ang from being killed, that just might be good enough too.
How can I play this wily fox? As of the last update, Cao Cao gets a heavier emphasis on spies. At Second Marquis, you'll get access to 3 of them off the bat. With technologies and ranks, you can amass up to 9 spies towards end-game!
This gives you the opportunity to really make use of the system. Consider your overall strategy as a sort of 'combined arms' approach. Spies, Diplomacy, and Military all mutually reinforcing one another.
Ideally you want turncoats over fresh faces, and remember to check family trees to see if you can snag a dissatisfied relative.
There are two ways to use Proxy Wars. The most obvious is to pit two powerful foes against one another, reducing the chances that one of them will attack you. It can also create ad-hoc allies. Remember people will like you if you're fighting their enemies as well!
The second method is to incite someone to attack a faction that they already want to attack. Someone weak, universally loathed (like Yellow Turbans), or a bitter rival. Why do this? Well, with that glib tongue of yours, they might just pay YOU to instigate this war. Combine this with a gift of gold or some ancillaries and you can even peacefully get territory from this method.
Cao Cao's unique units are the Tiger & Leopard Cavalry, shock cavalry with decent ranged defense. They are comparable to end-game units and this means that you can have powerful cavalry without a vanguard or commander. I find that Cao Cao naturally gravitates towards the Water side of the tech tree because 1. your unique units cover your cavalry needs, 2. your unique buildings cover your food needs, 3. your central position allows you to make maximum use of spies and trade agreements. As such, I tend to field 'weak core' armies, with strong cavalry and strong ranged complements but a very thin frontline. The key is to devastate the enemy before they get close and then collapse their morale with a charge. Be wary that this composition is vulnerable to powerful heroes and unbreakable units. Which makes... a LOT of sense. Cao Cao regularly defeated armies much larger than his own but really struggled against small and dedicated opponents like Liu Bei.

Who are your officers? You value talent, no matter where it comes from. You set a high standard but your officers will love you as a result. Many of Cao Cao's people get along EXTREMELY well with one another, with Dutiful being a very common trait.
Lady Bian- former prostitute, future Empress. From what we can tell, Cao Cao and Lady Bian genuinely loved eachother. Make her your heir and court satisfaction will go through the roof. She can also quickly get redeployment costs down, allowing you to cheaply deploy entire stacks across the map in a flash. It's really easy to get 0 cost redeployment as Cao Cao. Having her as an heir also allows another assignment slot fairly on, promoting a wide playstyle with lots of officers.
Cao Ang- your eldest son. By all rights, he should be your heir instead of Cao Pi at the start. He was a treasured son by Cao Cao and he has some really good traits for a generic like -15% retinue upkeep and +4 public order across the board. Alas, he died giving up his horse so Cao Cao could escape the battle of Wancheng. For this reason, CA has instead makes Cao Pi the default heir.
Xiahou Dun and Xiahou Yuan- your cousins. Both have -15% retinue upkeep from their armor so you can have them lead your most elite units. Xiahou Dun also gives his retinue fatigue resistance which is great for cavalry, despite him being a champion. He also ate his own eyeball. Xiahou Yuan was an accomplished archer and he's got above average cunning so he's actually incredibly well suited to leading horse archers or mounted crossbows. The top row of his skill tree will make them decent at charges too.
Dian Wei and Xu Chu- your bodyguards. Dian Wei was recruited after Xiahou Dun discovered him wrestling a tiger in the wilderness and he almost plays more like a commander with his strong buffing abilities. Xu Chu led a band of peasants against yellow turbans and proved his strength by pulling an ox by the tail. Both have easy access to Scare. Xu Chu's armor gives a -15% retinue upkeep discount! Unfortunately he's not AS good at commanding cavalry as Xiahou Dun.
Cao Ren and Yue Jin- your sentinels. They're not the strongest or flashiest of their type, but they get the job done. Historically, Yue Jin was known for being real short and an absolute mad lad charging into battle.
Xun Yu, Guo Jia, Xun You, Jia Xu- the strategists. Talent attracts talent, as they say. Xun Yu and Guo Jia each have the Brilliant trait, giving +15% ammo to you and -30% ammo to your enemies. None of these characters are guaranteed to come to your side, though they all have a fondness for Cao Cao's faction so be on the lookout to poach them with your spies sowing discontent. Upon his defeat at Chi Bi, Cao Cao is reputed to have said, "If only I had Guo Jia." Alas, the genius strategist died of illness several years prior. If he had lived, he might have been a match for Zhuge Liang.
Some tips Given that Cao Cao rarely struggles with satisfaction among his historical officers, you can hire any rank 4 character out of the pool (for -1000 gold) and immediately banish them for +1600 gold. In 5 turns, everyone will have forgotten! Capturing Pengcheng's unique building (The Grand Temple of Confucius) also grants +10 satisfaction on top of the +5 you can get from Lady Bian's background and both her and Cao Cao's fantastic authority.
I find Cao Cao ends up with so many officers that you can often deploy them, dismiss their retinues, and have the generals follow behind your main armies reinforcing them at 0 upkeep cost. They are definitely force multipliers and this plays into Cao Cao's historical strength of having an extremely competent corps of leaders. I think just adding 3 generals to an 18-unit army doubles or even triples its effectiveness, depending on who they are. Cao Cao himself is a tremendous force multiplier of other generals with Imperious Presence. Pair him up with two other officers that have 'Unyielding Earth" (+100% Melee Evasion, Unbreakable) and you can have virtually no downtime on that huge bonus to melee evasion.
In the 190 start, your turn 1 fodder is a guy named Yuan Huan. It might be worth trying to capture him alive (don't autoresolve it, just beat him up a little and let him rout) because he has an incredibly useful 'Agricultural Reformer' background. Makes sense since he was one of Cao Cao's architects of the Tuntian system.
If you can get a family member to turncoat, consider that faction as a potential ally based on the ability to Improve Relations without spending credibility. And when they get too big? Instigate a civil war and swoop in to the 'rescue'. Consider any spy that leads an army as a free upkeep retinue that's just waiting for you to spring the trap. Remember that if you have a single general army and get attacked by a full stack- extracting the spy on the eve of battle will turn it into a fair 2v2 fight. Don't forget to build up a surplus of money, Network, and Cover.
Yuan Shu is very susceptible to positive deal Proxy Wars. If your credibility is over 75, consider offering him a proxy war that he wants to fight AND acknowledge his legitimacy. He'll often outright give you territory in exchange. That or huge sums of money.
If you like to heavily invest in Trade Routes like I do, you might occasionally find yourself with an extra slot and no one to trade with. Carefully a select a subordinate (take a good look at their traits), ideally a family member, and make them an administrator of a commandery that is a little underutilized. Grant them independence and voila- you have a new trade partner, less corruption, an autonomous subordinate, and a free administrator slot. I've never had them betray me before, although it will take them several turns to build up their military and court. Until then, protect them as if it was your own territory (because it is!) You'll lose prestige, but the extra gold gained from this partnership can be used to upgrade your cities and gain it back. You can kickstart their military by deploying the administrator with a fully replenished retinue at the moment you turn them into a vassal. They'll separate from your army and go along their merry way.
In Summary I like Cao Cao's campaign because it's a challenging start position and there's very rarely a moment of peace. Your vulnerable position beset on all sides often means you're constantly fighting battles where you are outnumbered... but the game throws you incredible tools to meet this challenge. Talented officers flock to your side, your unique units and buildings are exceptionally potent and you have an array of diplomatic options with both spies and your credibility resource. I think his 190 campaign is one of the most demanding in the game right now, moreso than even 'Kill em all!' Yellow Turban starts because it asks you to master pretty much every dimension of Total War: 3K's gameplay- diplomacy, economy, and combat.
Phew... That was... a bit longer than I expected. If you're still here, enjoy this clip of Cao Cao's leadership in the 2010 Three Kingdoms TV show.
Fun fact Cao Cao was an accomplished poet, as was his third son Cao Zhi (present in the 194 start date).. Cao Zhi wrote the poem that provides the lyrics for the Eight Princes trailer, composing it in eight steps to convince his vengeful brother Cao Pi to spare his life.

2020.09.29 16:11 henrique2636743 OC Henry White

My hazbin hotel OC: Henry White / Mister H
Henry’s family: Gordon White (father), Mary White (mother), ........... White (older brother)
Friends: Charlie, Angel Dust, Alastor, Husk, Baxter
Foes: Sir Pentious, Valentino, katie killjoy
Henry’s sexuality: straight (aromantic)
Date of birth: 02/02/1940
Date of death: 6/16/2010
Cause of death: poisoning
Henry's personality traits:
Calm: Henry rarely shows any trace of anger or fear on his face even though he is directly disturbed or threatened.
Skilled chemist: In life Henry was an exemplary chemist in the pharmaceutical field and worked for some years making drugs and products to order for doubtful people to increase income.
Excessively literal: both for his profession and personality Henry has always taken things seriously and concretely, because of that he has certain problems in understanding slang and jokes from time to time, which can lead from both comic misunderstandings to real intrigues.
Good-natured: because he was never the type to go for the punch, Henry developed years of good speaking skills and bargaining skills that almost always guarantee him to leave with good deals and avoid intrigue.
Experienced fighter: although not very strong, because of his work Henry had to learn to defend himself against threats and retaliation, both in melee and using firearms.
Lover of black humor: even though he is not very good at catching jokes he really loves jokes mainly of sexual humor.
Henry's story before death:
Henry was born in a small city in Brazil and lived there until the age of 18 under the name of Henrique, even when his parents decided to immigrate to the United States where he lived until the end of his life. At the age of 23 he graduated from the chemistry faculty with a specialization in pharmacy and has already started working at a large pharmaceutical company.
At the age of 30 he sank into alcohol addiction after his parents died in a car accident, after almost a year in his addiction he ended up losing his job and sinking into debt, which forced him to use his knowledge for less noble purposes from the manufacture of recreational drugs for sale to the production of poisons and sedatives to order for terrible people he would hardly have imagined what they would use it for.
After 20 years in this business he had to get rid of more people than he would like and the worst thing is that he almost didn't mind doing it, so for fear of getting lost in this life he decided to give up and try to work honestly again, however as was to be expected, none of his clients were happy with this and he started to live each day with concern for his life and several times having to take up arms to survive. At the age of 70 during an experiment for the development of a new drug, he had his laboratory invaded and due to the fright he ended up dropping his products, by accident forming poisonous gas which ended up killing both him and his attackers.
• Appearance: in life he had the appearance of a physically Brazilian man with dark brown hair, slightly tanned, with dark brown eyes and a weak physique. He usually dressed in a dirty coat, goggles and gas mask because of work but in his personal life he had a great appreciation for social and formal clothes especially during his "negotiations", usually being seen in a suit, hat black fedora with a red stripe and white gloves usually being mistaken for a magician, he also had the habit of walking with his two favorite weapons a pair of long-barreled black 357 magnum pistols hidden inside the suit. After his death he took on the appearance of a classic red demon, black horns and a long tail with a sharp tip at the end. In clothing he was left in a black suit with crimson red accents giving the impression of blood splatter and two cufflinks carved with pentagrams, a red tie, white gloves with sulfur and lead alchemical symbols with a fedora identical to the one he had in life, but with two holes coming from the horns.

2020.09.29 15:39 cory_lowry Windows 10 being laggy

I am having issues with windows 10 being real laggy. I have a ryzen 7, 32gb of ram, rx 570 gpu, 600w psu, and i just bought another ssd. It's a samsung 860 evo 1tb. I had a sandisk ssd, and it was doing it on there, so i installed windows on a mechanical drive, ran it for 2-3 weeks and never had the lagging issue. So i automatically thought my ssd was going bad. So i bought the samsung ssd, now its doing it on this one too. Does windows 10 just not like ssds or something? Could you give me any tips to checkout? Because its kind of annoying and I feel like i've tried everything. Everything is up to date.

2020.09.29 14:27 kelimas87 Dating and shame

Hi everyone, I am new here. I would like to see if anyone has the same experience as me
I am going to try to keep this brief. I am single for the first time for 2 years now. I am 32F. We were together for 7 years and another guy before him almost 8 years with a short gap in between. I was blindsided and humiliated during this last break up. But I got through it. I am now glad it happened because he was obviously not what I thought he was. Anyway. It has been a nice self-discovering journey with it's ups and downs since then. I worked hard to rebuild my life, got new friends, hobbies, job is going great, I am more fit then ever, I even did a glow up unintentionally, I just got too much time for myself :) I am much more self-aware of my feelings and I do regular journaling, I see a therapist also. All in all, I am an independant, nice looking, stable, quite zen person that has her sh*t together. In the middle of all this is dating. And I just cannot grasp it. It has been a disaster so far (50+ first dates, 3 people who I saw maybe 4 times and then it fizzeled out without any real connection). I guess it's a mix of me choosing emotionally unavailable men and having too high expectations. I am really trying to stay positive and I really try not to say all men are sh*t dispite all the disappointments.
Because I know the problem is ME.
I just recently realised that the most prominent emotion that I feel regarding all this dating thing is.. SHAME.. I am ashamed of how my ex threw me in the garbage. I am ashamed I have to date again. I am ashamed to show if I really like someone. I am ashamed of being 33 and not having a family yet. I am ashamed I am on dating apps. I am ashamed to show I care when someone does something hurtful to me (ghosting seems to be the norm today). I am ashamed to admit I want a family and that I am really sad I don't. I was so ashamed how he dumped me I basically deleted dozens of people out of my life. I am ashamed to face my family without a new partner.. I am afraid to bump into my ex without a new partner because of shame. Shame Shame Shame everywhere.. This does not happen in my professional life at all, it is actually quite the opposite. I am a badass project manager who gets stuff done and I am praised by my bosses every day. I am not perfect at my work, but I am confident af and people seem to respect that.
So my question is. Has any one of you combated a similar problem with shame and very low confidence while dating? Has dating become easier once you worked on this? Do you have any tips on what to do? Do you get vulnerable with people you date and admit this to them? I already see a therapist, I do meditations, affirmations, journaling, I try all sorts of stuff, but it seems to be a pattern I can't really manage (yet). I read a phrase a few days ago and I just started howling because I found that it is exactly what I feel : “intensely painful feeling or experience of believing that we are flawed and therefore unworthy of love and belonging" (by the amazing Brené Brown)
For now I stopped dating to figure this out but I still long for connection, so I would like to know if you have any thoughts on this to speed up the process :)
Much love

2020.09.29 14:21 midnightlovexx Getting over your FP

Any tips on how to get over your FP?
I used to be very close friends/was kind of dating mine, until they got into a relationship with someone else.
We still have mutual friends and therefore see each other from time to time, so I’m left clinging and obsessing over everything about our interactions. I’m always hoping that he still feels the same way, and will end his relationship for me. I can’t ever imagine being happy without him in my life, and I don’t know how to cope with it.
