2023.03.27 05:07 dabootaykilla Saint Bernard Pup in an Apartment

I am considering getting a saint bernard puppy this coming August, but I live in a ~600 sqft apartment in NYC. I am in the last year of my degree and am hoping to move to TN/VA where I can afford a more spacious place for the same rent once I'm done with my program. My current apartment is on the first floor and has a fenced patio with it, and I'm two blocks away from a park with a section for dogs. Do you think that I can make the pup work for a few months?

2023.03.27 04:54 Used-Information-455 I think I might have CPTSD from parenting, bullying, accidents, and more (long)

I'm in my early 30s, male. I'm starting to wonder if I have CPTSD. I've always known something is wrong with me. I just keep pretending everything is normal, knowing something feels wrong, but thinking I'm just lazy/stupid/unmotivated for not be able to find it and fix it. I've experienced the following symptoms pretty persistently throughout my adolescence, teens, and 20s.
I've tried therapy in the past, but never really stuck with it. I've just re-entered therapy and a men's group in the past few months again and am going to see it through. The reason I entered was mainly due to realizing I feel extremely stuck in life and hopeless, and trying to get to the root of why I feel that way. I thought I mostly had an okay childhood (middle class, parents still together, some friends, some hobbies), and that I was just a piece of shit for not feeling fully enthusiastic and in control in life. I've sought help via psychiatrists, medication for depression and ADHD, meditation, and healthy living as much as I can.
I didn't think I had any trauma in my past, but after doing some initial reading, I think I might have some. I have never opened up about any of this to anyone, besides a few details to my therapist and sister, so this is hard. After thinking about what potential trauma I had in my childhood, though, I feel I'm drowning and there's no bottom. I feel like my whole personality, including my choice of careepartners/hobbies, is just a response to these things. I don't know where to go from here. I'm just trying to put the pieces together.
1. Pretty emotionally distant dad. I had deeply repressed this, but I just realized that my father would basically be there, and would provide for the family, but would basically be emotionally absent.
I realize he did the best he could, but I think I just didn't get the care I needed to develop a sense of self and regulate my emotions in a healthy way early on. I can't really remember a solid piece of life advice ("my father always told me..."). Nearly every day after work, he'd come home and say a few words and then go take a nap, sometimes for several hours until mom made dinner. Felt like he'd just walk right past me and see right through me. Etc.
I think the really damaging thing was that he would give me and the whole family the silent treatment for days, sometimes I think up to a week or more if something set him off. We would be forced to just endure it. Read him emotionally. Do the dishes, quietly. Do my chores, quietly. Sit at the table and eat dinner in tense silence. Say nothing. Look to my mom for advice on what to do, but she'd just side with him. So, we'd wait. I'd ruminate endlessly about what to do, how to make it better - no answers. I'd cry myself to sleep alone in my room. I'd hate myself and think I was worthless. I'd truly worry he would leave the family because of me. I'd think he never actually wanted kids or loved me. I think this was around the first time I experimented with self harm (hitting myself in the head, running a knife over my arm but never cutting, thinking I should just be beaten instead). He never hit me that I can recall, but I was spanked, if that counts.
Eventually things would slide back into a terse normalcy - but I'd always wait for the next time. This happened fairly frequently, I think. I asked my sister because I couldn't really remember the details, and she said it happened fairly regularly until we were about 8 (me) and 10 years old. Great, only the most formative years. It mostly stopped then, when she wrote him a letter asking him to stop, but continued sometimes. I don't really remember what I did to set it off, or what set it off in general. I think just being a needy kid and him being stressed.
2. Sustained, malicious, intense bullying. I was a pretty introverted kid, and I think that's why I was a target. Bullying started in grade school and continued unabated through high school. Specifically targeted by bullies in the halls or after school. Called gay and mocked all the time in the locker room. Beaten up a few times. I was extensively targeted for ongoing harassment by a few guys in particular in high school. They would draw things on our driveway, egg our house, walk outside our house at night, etc.
I have a few guy friends, but mainly 3 close ones I've known since childhood. I've never really developed any other male friends since that - since high school. I think it's because I'm still stuck there in terms of trust. I don't trust other guys not to hate me and ostracize me. I don't seek out those relationships.
3. Dog attacks. I was attacked by our family dog when I was a toddler, I was told. I don't think it was super serious, no cuts/scars etc. I was attacked by another family dog that got on top of me and biting at me when I was closer to middle school.
Mainly, in middle school, I was attacked by another rescue dog at a farm where my sister and mom were riding horses. I was off in a nearby field playing with this dog (about my size) when he turned from playing to on top of me. Snarling at me, biting at me. He got on top of me and bit me but only caught my arm/jacket that I put up in defense, and he was very intensely pulling at me.
I was screaming, and my mom came over the hill. I remember screaming at her to help me, but for some reason (maybe the attack didn't look or wasn't as serious as it felt), she just said "you got this," and she walked away or stayed put a few hundred yards away. I eventually pushed it off/wrapped my jacket around it and got away. I don't think she really comforted me afterwards. Maybe this isn't as serious as I remember, but the fact that I still remember it and had an intense fear response to actually remembering it fully tells me that my kid brain thought I was going to fucking die, and my mom ignored that completely. That I'm on my own in times of dangefear, and that I can't trust anyone to save me.
I love dogs now and want one, but I think I've always subconsciously kept my distance and that's why I haven't gotten one yet. I think I'm still afraid at some level, as silly as that sounds.
4. Knockouts/car accident/head trauma. I've been knocked out a bunch of times, which probably isn't great.
There have been a few other times. In high school, I turned left into a two-lane T-intersection but didn't see a car in the oncoming direction from the right (hidden behind a nearby car and then switched into the lane I was trying to merge into), and I slammed on the breaks. As I went to go, I looked left and everything went into slow motion as a car came straight at me at full speed/50 mph or so (I think she was on her phone). It t-boned the car and hit right behind me on the driver's side, and totaled the car. I was knocked out for a few seconds and extremely disoriented. I didn't sustain serious injuries, but was bruised/had whiplash and massively dissociated for several days. I got a ticket for failure to yield, and my dad responded to the accident and was worried - but ultimately I think he seemed more pissed about the car in the long run.
This is a side note and pretty woo-woo, but I remember having an intense feeling of dread in the week prior, like something bad was coming. That might just be regular old anxiety, but part of me feels like I was supposed to die that day, and that I've just been existing in this dissociated, alternate reality ever since.
5. Deep Catholic guilt. I was raised Catholic by people who didn't really seem to believe in it, but culturally that's just what they were and "what you did," so they sent me to Catholic school through eighth grade anyway. There, we got all the typical messages - you're bad, you're guilty, you're sinful, you deserve to go to hell - but you'll be forgiven and go to heaven if you're a good boy and you play by the rules. Mandatory church on Fridays. Confessionals, confessing your bad thoughts to a priest. "If you're happy and you know it, that's a sin." I was highly, highly sensitive to this and had so much fear about doing anything wrong.
I understand the appeal of Christianity and Catholicism, I do, and I don't mind anyone who finds value in it. But I rebelled hard - questioning everything. I saw people not living up to the values they professed to hold. I saw the contradictions, the inconsistencies, but I couldn't help but internalize the values. I was a damn philosophy and ethics major in college out of an intense need to find an answer, develop a reliable superego or whatever, and to feel like I would be good and get love if I could just figure out what a silent god - and a silent father - wanted me to do.
6. Some unexplained deepset anxious feeling of something like sexual abuse or inappropriate touching at a young age. This one is extremely difficult for me to even conceptualize and put into words. I don't know if this even happened. But, I have a deep feeling and some flash of two memories - once in Catholic school, once on a farm at a family gathering. Those memories are more like a feeling, an impression, of deep shame and me being forced to do something I didn't want to do, something I know is wrong and extremely embarrassing. I'm not sure what to make of that and I don't remember any specifics. As you can see, I don't remember my childhood very well. Probably all the knockouts, to be honest.
I don't know why I'm writing this. I guess I'm just trying to process these things, and writing it out helps. Any advice, reactions, resources, or thoughts would be appreciated. Thank you.

2023.03.27 04:52 delayedconfusion Dog Friendly Farm Stays

Anybody have any tips on finding a holiday location within a few hours drive of the Gold Coast that is large dog friendly and has lots of fenced off open space? I'm thinking a cottage on a farm with a fenced off paddock attached or something similar.
Not sure if this is even a thing, but if anyone has any pointers on where I would start looking, that would be fantastic. I've got 2 high energy rescue dogs that are too excitable to let off lead in public parks or the beach, I'd love to give them the experience of open spaces in a safe location where they can't hurt themselves or get into trouble harassing other animals.

Skipper, 8
My boy Skip. He was only 8. He died today, in the middle of the night, had advanced bone cancer. We thought he was just getting older, having difficulty moving, we thought it was his joints, at worse arthritis. He no longer hurts but we do. Best dog that ever was. He was a rescue, he was found with his friend who had a gun shot wound, he too was adopted many years ago.

2023.03.27 04:34 SanderSo47 CinemaScore Analysis – 2017 Edition

Link to the other editions:
1980s: 1986 1987 1988 1989
1990s: 1990 1991 1992 1993 1994 1995 1996 1997 1998 1999
2000s: 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009
2010s: 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017
In this post, I kept track of every 2017 movie's CinemaScore (at least, the ones that got it). I plan to post for each subsequent year, one year per weekend. My intention is to see the evolution of each year and how the grades can either help or damage a movie's legs.
I plan to delve into each year and each movie that got a grade. While CinemaScore was founded in 1979, we didn't get a grade until 1982 and we didn't get full information until 1986.
Before starting, some notes:
In 2017, 129 movies received CinemaScores (2016 had 143). How did it go?
Surprisingly, this year had all grades (from A+ all the way to F). I'm impressed.


5 movies (3.87%) managed to get the rare A+. Generally, this indicates exceptional word of mouth and guarantees a long and healthy run. Of course, the bigger a movie opens, the weaker legs will turn out to be. These movies averaged a 3.77x multiplier. In comparison, 2016 had 4 movies with a 4.48x average multiplier.

For some niche movies, this should be a fine score. But for IP-driven movies, this should be concerning as fans are more biased to the movie itself. These movies averaged a 2.91x multiplier. In comparison, 2016 had 23 movies with a 3.01x average multiplier.

2023.03.27 04:32 fitchaber10 Am I crazy for thinking my new dog is the reincarnated spirit of my dog I had growing up?

Growing up, I had a Bearded Collie. He was with me from K till after my first year of college. He passed away at 13.5 when he couldn't eat or drink anymore. I remember being in the room when he was put to sleep and he was crying from being in pain. It broke my heart, as I am an only child, had no friends and he protected me always and was my best friend.
I didn't have a dog from age 19 till a year ago. I am 33 now.
I now have a 4 year old Pomapoo that I got from a rescue a year ago. He is my best friend and follows me everywhere.
What I wonder though is if people think their old dog gets reincarnated? We have a mini statue of my old dog and my new dog goes over and smells it all the time. It's a porcelin statue. It got me thinking, what if my dog got reincarnated to come back to me? At the very least, I think their spirits knew each other and my old dog told him to come help me.
I had been going through a hard time when I got my dog and once again had no friends, then this little dog came into my life. I probably sound crazy, but just curious if anyone else thinks this way.

2023.03.27 04:19 SnooMemesjellies345 Dog park behavior has worsened - need help correcting

We rescued our newest dog (a 5ish yo small hound mix, has blue eyes though, so might have some shepherd in him?) about 3 months ago, and were initially warned that he might not be good with other dogs or a good dog park candidate. We have 2 existing dogs that he's been great with at home, and the first 2.5 months he was actually pretty good at the dog park.
He's very high energy and LOVES to run with his crazy powerful hind legs, so we take him to a big off-leash park. He sometimes hyper-focuses on other dogs, especially ones playing fetch (sees them running and wants to play, not understanding that they're playing fetch and don't want to run with him), but lately he's started to nip at throats and bark and bully other dogs. Nothing has changed with his lifestyle/ diet, so we're not sure why he's regressing. We used to be able to correct and redirect him, but he mostly seems to ignore us now until we physically pull him away and leash him. We don't want to take the dog park totally off the table because it's the best way to let him run (he's way faster than we are, so standard walks don't give him a ton of opportunity to run out his energy).
He lived in a car with an unhoused individual prior to us adopting him, so we don't think he had much exposure to other dogs/socialization/training. He's the sweetest cuddle bug, and he's great with our dogs (dachshund mix and beagle mix) and with my cousin's corgi, but we want to curb this nipping and aggressive play in the bud before he hurts someone or gets hurt himself. He's a small guy (only about 25lbs) so it's easy for him to get knocked around by the bigger dogs he tries to play with.
We've considered muzzle training to help with the nipping and barking, but aren't sure the best way to go about that. We've been super lucky with dogs in the past, so have never had to do much training. We want to give him the best chance at being a happy, playful dog, but one that does it respectfully and doesn't ruin other dogs' time at the park. We're big believers that there's no such thing as a bad dog, and that with training he has a shot. We just don't know where to start. We love him a lot and are willing to put in the work because he deserves it after the life he's had.
Any advice?

2023.03.27 04:16 TrexMommy Advice needed for dog boarding / neutering / behavior - German Shepard rescue

We rescued a German Shepard about 6 weeks ago. We think he is right at a year old. It did not take us long to realize that he is a barker and a jumper. He jumps on everything and everyone. It takes us a little while to calm him down when we need to go into the backyard. We have taken him to get all his shots etc. He is scheduled to be neutered on Thursday 3/30, and we are hoping this will curb some behavior, and we are not ready to become dog-grandparents. I have a smaller older dog that does not interact with him, because the smaller dog is very timid and is afraid of big dogs. We are scheduled to be out of town the following week for 4 days. Do dog daycares accept unneutered dogs? OR Is it better to try to find a dog sitter to come to our house and feed/water him? The days between neutering and leaving is 6 days. How long will it take for the dog to recover from neutering? Should we delay his neutering so the dog sitter doesn't have to deal with it? Is it okay to leave the dog sleep outside at night? Currently the dog stays out all day, and sleeps inside at night. We wanted to ask a neighbor, but the dog jumped on him and tore his jeans (we replaced the jeans). The smaller older dog is staying with family because he is low maintenance, and gets along with their other small dog. Leaving a household member behind to care for the dog is not an option. We all have to go. I need advice on the how boarding works for jumping dogs, and neutered vs non neutered. When we took him to get his shots, he was around several dogs. He barked a little, and got along with the other dogs there, so I don't think he has issues with other dogs, and would like boarding.

2023.03.27 04:02 Tek466 21 [M4F] Illinois/Anywhere/Online - Any older women in need of a younger man for a close friendship or something more flirtatious? Been feeling pretty alone and could use someone. Anyone 18-60 is welcome.

My name is Dylan and I’m a 21 year old single guy from northeastern Illinois in the US.
While anyone 18 and up is welcome, I’d really like to meet an older woman. I’m mature for my age and would enjoy keeping someone older company in their 30s or 40s or older! I’m relaxing in bed enjoying a nice cup of tea and wanted to meet someone.
I’m seeking some kind of close connection with friendship being the main thing, however, I’m definitely open to things getting a bit spicier than that, whether that’s something where we remain friends yet can be flirty or romantic such as a friend with benefits for example.
I like to say upfront that I will always be mindful and considerate of your feelings and boundaries, especially concerning anything flirty or more intimate that we might get into. It’s important to me and we’d never have to do anything we weren’t comfortable with or ready for.
Physically I'm 6ft tall, I'm average/slim build, and I'm white/Caucasian with hazel eyes and dark brown hair. I wear glasses too. There’s a picture or two on my profile.
I don’t have any preference on body type for whom I find attractive. Everyone is beautiful in their own way. I’m also attracted to people older than me as well, hence being so open to meeting people.
I’m currently living at home, trying to get a job at a warehouse but long term career goals so far is to do something in the electrical field/trades such as a fire alarm systems technician as I’m good with technical things like that. I’ve got older parents and I live on a main road in a small farm house so I’ve been feeling pretty lonely most of my life. I’ve listed some interests of mine below!
Now that we've established who I am and what I'm looking for, here are a few interests of mine to get to know me better!
• Fall/Autumn season
I had to list this one because I just adore the fall and everything that comes with it. My birthday is in October too so it's always been my favorite month. I much prefer fall and winter over a muggy humid summer. In the cooler seasons there's always ways to warm up.
• Candles and Incense
I love candles and incense and stuff like this!! I feel like you don't find guys into this stuff that much but I definitely am an exception.
• Technology
I'm good at fixing electronics and I'm quite nerdy in that aspect. So if something breaks I can fix it ;) I'm also good with my hands and quite inclined mechanically and quite the nerd.
• Music
I love genres such as classic rock, alternative rock, psychedelic rock, gothic rock, heavy metal, punk, post punk, hardcore, etc. My current favorite bands are The Cure and Joy Division/New Order. But I like tons of older and newer bands as well. such as: Bauhaus, Velvet Underground, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Type O Negative, Nirvana, Rush, Pink Floyd, Janis Joplin, the Wipers, Spacemen 3, Meshuggah, Megadeth, Buzzcocks, MC5, Stooges, 13th Floor Elevators, Screaming Trees, Green Day, Alice in Chains, Asylum Party, My Bloody Valentine, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, Jefferson Airplane, etc.
• Cooking and Baking
I like to cook and learn new recipes, as well as bake fun things too! It's always nice when the house feels nice and cozy and smells good. I appreciate the simple pleasures in life, a cozy cup of tea and music or a movie in bed or sitting outside is so nice!
• Animals
I love animals of all types, and I currently have an older cat which I adore to death! We rescued her from the local shelter. She's the sweetest thing. (I think I love her more than anyone in the house lol, she just makes me so happy) :) I also don't kill insects or bugs, I catch and release them outside.
• Art
I enjoy art, both creating it from time to time such as drawing, and admiring other peoples work. There's just something so fun about it and seeing things so beautiful.
• Houseplants
I love houseplants and really anything nature related and also spiritual such as crystals and rocks. I love to help my mom in caring for all of our plants and also gardening outside when its a good growing season. Its fun! I also like cottage core and goblin core type vibes and enjoy sitting out on the deck burning incense, its peaceful :)
• Photography
I recently got a DSLR camera, a Nikon D5500 and a D200 and I've really been enjoying taking photos of my cat and nature landscapes! This includes closeups, photos of trees, the fields, etc. I've been working a lot on composition, long exposures, getting nice blurred backgrounds, depth of field, etc. It's interesting to me.
That’s me! I hope you get a good taste of what I am like and if any of this catches your interest I’d love to hear from you and we can get to know each other further. Thanks for taking the time to read my post, hope to hear from you soon.

2023.03.27 04:00 PeanutTechno Super Adventure Rockman...what went wrong?

So! I have spend my weekend watching clips of Super Adventure Rockman, and reading the Archie adaptation of it. From both of those alone I can hear people asking "why?" to which my response was "to see if it REALLY was that bad". For reference, I have recently come down with a nasal infection due to allergies going haywire over the week (I get it's the first week of spring, but you'd think nature would let up on the allergies!). So I figured "why not?" So, first and foremost, Inafune actually apologized for this game, stating it to be "too dark". But then, Megamix and Gigamix are darker too! So that can't be the problem. I understand it used FMVs which lended slightly to the issue, but it didn't ruin everything. Now granted, there are times they reuse the audio or video clips to show when you go into battle, and everytime you take a shot or get hit there are sound effects. That's to be expected. But due to the hardware it was on, the recording can get a bit loud at times. Most of the cutscenes boil down to Rock walking in a location, maybe choosing a path, and occasionally being ambushed. A lot of Robot Masters being fought one after another can also get around to feeling tedious after a while. Nothing against the Robot Masters, it's just the setup: they're supposed to be bosses at the end of a stage, not spaced between a few enemies and exploration. But the real thing dragging the whole thing down in my opinion is Ra Moon. I'm going to copypaste my notes here so that way you can get a comparison between versions [with some additional notes I made in brackets like this]: - - - - Super Rockman Adventure timeline/notes:
(From the actual game and cutscenes)
* Lafront Ruins appears along with the Moon Temple and EMP field * Wily Travels to Lafront ruins * 3 Weeks Later, Wily stumbles across Ra Moon, who hijacks his computer and revives the MM2 Robot Master. Wily asks if it's a dream before Quickman confirms it isn't. Ra Moon introduces himself * Weeks later, Dr. Light notices a magnetic field over the Lafront Ruins, noting that IN ONE WEEK it has gotten much larger * Roll notes that that's where Wily went (I have no idea how she'd know this) * Roll Falls Ill * TIME LIMIT GIVEN: 2 Weeks until Roll Dies * Wily gives the world an ultimatum: Submit in 2 weeks or the world is destroyed * Light gives Megaman (and the original 8) a formula which will protect them from EMP interference) [Plot can be either the 8 help others worldwide and transfer the code OR that Rock goes almost alone aside from the following dictated by plot: Gutsman, * Roll says that people and robots believe in the power of love [This was originally shown in a flashback, I'm just putting it here so it makes sense chronologically] * Light sends support through items in the jungle * Rock makes it to the island, encounters Renbakun (a missile dropping enemy from Megaman 5) * He encounters a swarm of many different Mets and runs for it, reaching a fork in the road. Beat has done aerial recon and transfers data to Megaman, claiming that the left path is easier to get lost in, so they go right * Rock takes out another horde of Mets, and comes under attack by Metalman - METALMAN BOSSFIGHT - Metalman beaten *Megaman goes by the lake (Possible Bubbleman Bossfight?) - Bubbleman Bossfight * Megaman goes up the mountain, Beat brings him an E-Tank - Heatman Bossfight (Megaman beats him with Bubble Lead, location is on the mountainside * Wily is shown noting that Megaman used an E-Tank after the Heatman bossfight) * An Item Box is found, guarded by several Hari Harry and Kerog (AT LEAST 3 Hari Harry and 4 Kerogs, judging from the cutscene) * Flashman is encountered by the Mountainside and Rock notices. Flashman gets in a free hit on Rock by warping in behind Rock [in the cutside, the free hit is located on the side. Usually maximum competense would dictate a headshot from behind. However since Rock noticed Flashman, it is likely he anticpated this, meaning from a writing perspective if Rock dodges the shot the best place to hit would then be the legs, since the plot later down the line dictates that Rock uses 2 Chargeshots at once to take out Ra Moon.] - FLASHMAN BOSSFIGHT * Flashman beaten with Metal Blade (rip Flashman, you have a cool design) * Megaman goes through a small forest section up the mountain before discovering the Ra Moon Pyramid * Quickman states that if he beats Rock he will be the number 1 Robot, challenging him * Rock explains about the EMP, Quickman doesn't believe him, stating that Wily revived them all. Quickman gets in 4 FREE HITS. [Maximum competence dictates that due to superior speed, at least 2 of them are fatal. From a writing standpoint, if you choose to pin both of Rock's arms to the wall, that costs 2 of those hits and Rock has a 50/50 chance to escape at best before the 3rd hit {GUARANTEED FATAL due to a combination of Quickman's staus as a Rival of Megaman, as well as his superior speed} lands. ) - Quickman BOSSFIGHT * Rock explains that Earth will be destroyed by the EMP, which includes Dr. Wily, which leads to Quickman hesitating before getting in a killing blow * Shadowman appears and calls Quickman slow, and states that he (Shadowman) will be the one to end Rockman. [From a creative standpoint, this can result in either a 3 way battle or Quickman teaming up with Megaman to beat Shadowman, but the end result is Quickman taking his last hit from Shadowman.] * Rock is shown to be worn out after the fighting them, Quickman reveals that he now believe Rock, telling him to fight. Rock looks towards the temple and silently vows to take on whoever caused this. (Part 1 ends) * Ra Moon is seen extending it's tendrils into a black orb [I suspect this is him trying to form Ra Devil]. 6 Sniper Joes are seen working with Wily on Ra Thor. Ra Thor's blueprint is shown, with Wily claiming he'll "make the strongest Robot using the strongest computer" * Worldwide locations are shown with the blackout affecting them [This can be omitted, or at the very least shown to reveal that it has been at least 1 week since Rock left for the Ruins] * 3 Sniper Joes attempt to ambush Rock, but are defeated by Protoman, who warms him "there are lots of enemies here". * Megaman asks Blues why he's there to which Protoman responds "I figured when the world's in a pinch you'd be bitter to deal with it alone". Blues then states he'll work with Rock, but it would be better to work alone. * An Item Box is found nearby, giving Megaman an item similar to Proto Shield. [NOTE: This results in a defensive update which can halve damage, at the cost of also cutting your speed in half] * A flock of 15 Pipi appear. At least 3 Copipi get in a free hit and Rock escapes when a wall nearby caves in (yes I counted all the birds in the custscene) * Woodman appears, getting in 2 FREE HITS and a charging FREE HIT (which slightly increases damage) before slamming him against the wall [Meaning Rock takes 4 hits total. Maximum competense dictates at least the first hit is from Leaf Shield, as since they both know Woodman still has access to it, it makes no sense that Woodman wouldn't START equipped with it) - WOODMAN BOSSFIGHT * Rock walks into the front of the Temple Ruins. He blasts a wall and gets an E-Tank, which he uses. * Rock encounters a Fan Fiend, who claims that if he beats Rock "[he'll] become a real robot!" (Don't worry Fan Fiend, I already do consider you one, buddy) * Airman is encountered - AIRMAN BOSSFIGHT [an optional failure cutscene reveals Elecman saving Rock from Airman] * A bunch of Bunby Helis are encountered near an abyss. Rock jumps to the other side, grabbing an Item Box in his haste, which he then throws to the bottom in a hurry. A Picketmet is encountered. * 10 Suzy are encountered (yes, I counted them in the cutscene), an Item Box is found before Rock is ambushed by Crashman - CRASHMAN BOSSFIGHT [an optional failure cutscene reveals Fireman present to rescue Megaman] * Rock wins, going into another cavelike domain. He is then told by Blues to wait until dark to take on a bunch of patrolling enemies outside. * A Mouse-like enemy from MM5 reveals to Wily that Rock is in Snakeman's area. * Rock is spotted by a Blader and Ladybug bots forcing him to flee. He falls for a pit trap into a cave * Rock encounters sliding blocks [maybe replace this with Yoku blocks?] and is then ambushed by at least 15 Battonton. An exploding Search Snake attempts to cause a cave in on top of Rock. Snakeman attempts to ambush Rock but is foiled by Beat - SNAKEMAN BOSSFIGHT * Rock encounters the Met Family * Rock is ambushed by Needleman who gets in 3 FREE HITS - NEEDLEMAN BATTLE * Rock finds and uses an E-Tank * Rock climbs out of the cave, Geminiman enters from the temple entrance. Geminiman gets in 1 FREE HIT [Maximum competense rules that he could snipe Megaman from the entrance and get a free hit to the neck, which would slow Rock's aiming considerably] - GEMINIMAN BOSSFIGHT * Wily uses a hologram to brag to Rock about Ra Thor * Rock informs Wily about how the EMP field will kill everyone, which causes Ra Moon to cut transmissions. When Wily questions this, Ra Moon states it was a small glitch. * Rock wonders into a labyrinth * Rock comes across Magnetman at the exit to the labyrinth - MAGNETMAN BOSSFIGHT * Rock heads further into a circular room and Hardman tries to ambush him - HARDMAN BOSSFIGHT * Hardman is done in by an acid trap, which Rock escapes * Upon climbing the pillars, Rock is ambushed by Topman who gets in 1 FREE HIT - TOPMAN BOSSFIGHT * Rock goes through a vent, finds and uses and E-Tank * Rock crawls out of the tunnel, and then gets ambushed by Sparkman, who get in 4 FREE HITS * Rock gets the Spark Shot, but it's revealed that Sparkman fakes his death and shocked Rock into unconsciousness * Rock is captured by Wily, who then reveals that the RMs have been revived, and introduces Rock to Ra Moon * Rock tells Wily that the EMP field is destroying the world, and Quickman warns Wily that Ra Moon is decieving them * Wily orders the RMs to destroy Megaman [which, from a writing perspective, SHOULD result in a 16-against 1 Bossfight, or at least a Bossrush] * Ra Moon zaps all 16 Robot Masters and tells his origin story. Wily calls BS on Ra Moon being thousands of years old [which I completely agree with] * Ra Moon declares his intent to betray Wily and destroy the Robot Masters. When Wily states he loves his Robot Masters, Ra Moon acts like it doesn't exist. * Wily orders Ra Thor to destroy Ra Moon. Ra Moon then reveals that he controls Ra Moon. Ra Moon disables MOST of the RMs, save for Metalman and Geminiman, who freed Megaman from a trap. * Ra Thor gets 3 FREE HITS on Rockman. Wily reveals that Ra Moon's speed is twice of Quickman's and he is 4 times as strong as Hardman. - RA THOR BOSSFIGHT * Ra Moon reveals that he anticipated Ra Thor's failure, and created the Ra Devil as a fallback. Ra Devil takes an attack from all 16 RMs and laughs it off. * Ra Moon reveals that "your attacks simply replenish his systems" [which from a decent writing perspective translates into "The only attack that can harm this boss is the Megabuster"]. Ra Devil zaps all 16 RMs and Rock fights it - Ra Devil bossfight * Next cutscene reveals Ra Devil gets at least 1 free shot in on top of the fact that Rock's HP is half depleted by this point. Wily tells Rock that Ra Devil can be overloaded, and to attack Ra Moon directly * Rock asks the RMs to give him their energy, Magnetman takes an attack meant for Rock, followed by Hardman and Woodman taking a second attack left for Rock. - Second Ra Devil Phase? * Rock defeats Ra Moon with 2 Charge Shots combined.
* Rock is fighting Breakman * Wily is betrayed by Ra Moon, who electrocutes him. In this version, Ra Moon has limited movement but uses his wires to reach [NOTE: From a writing standpoint, if you wish to make Ra Moon himself into a bossfight at the end, this gives him acess to grapples, electricity based moves, whiplike abilities, and laser blasts.] * Ra Moon tells Wily he will steal Wily's designs, have humanity destroy itself out of desparation, and leave no survivors * Ra Moon locks Wily out of most of his computers, and Wily escapes to a hidden lab while Ra Moon charges up an EMP wave * Ra Moon triggers the worldwide blackout, Rock has enough willpower to let out a chargeshot before being forced to shutdown * Rock wakes up, and is debriefed on the situation. * Dr Light says they have enough anti EMP coating to last a week. DEADLINE GIVEN: 1 WEEK * Cutman, Bombman and Gutsman also get protective coating * Breakman returns and is attacked by Ra Moon [Possible minibossfight against Ra Moon?]. Wily gets him into a secret lab and explains what happened * Wily reveals Ra Thor to Breakman, saying he planned for this, but needs more time to complete Ra Thor. * Rock and the others crashland in the Amazon, ambushed by Metalman * 5-against-4 Bossfight against Flashman, Bubbleman, Metalman and Heatman. * Rock claims he doesn't want to fight, Flashman says he doesn't care. - END RESULT OF BATTLE: Bombman disabled, Rock gets the 4 weapons. * Breakman reveals to Wily that Megaman has arrived * Woodman, Airman, and Crashman attack the group [Possible bossfight?] Rock talks them out of fightng * Rock explains the situation, Crashman agrees that things are suspicious * Quickman and Shadowman are shown eavesdropping, Shadowman stabs Quickman * Shadowman ambushes everyone, Rock and the rest retreat * Cutman and Bombman stay behind to heal the Wily RMs, Gutsman and Rush go along with Rock * Ra Moon bullshits his way into possessing Needleman and Snakeman (because plot) the instant they start to think that since the world is at stake, maybe this isn't the best plan * Snakeman and Needleman ambush Gutsman and Rock in a labyrinth * Quakewoman, Elecman, Centaurman and Timeman are revealed to be helping others across the world. Dr. Light reveals that people are beginning to run out of resources faster than anticipated due to panicking, and estimates maybe 100 hours at most * Geminiman ambushes the duo - GEMINIMAN BOSSFIGHT * Geminiman (or rather, his hologram) reveals that Ra Moon is at the heart of the Temple * Breakman returns with the rest of the RMs * 2 fights at once: 8-against 8 (MM2 VS MM3 RMs). FIGHT 2 is Megaman and Blues against Ra Thor. Rock gets Multiple weapons (in order): Bubble Lead, Spark Shot, Quick Boomerang, Metal Blade, Needle Cannon. - RA THOR BOSSFIGHT * Ra Moon takes out the MM2 RMs while they are caught up with the ones from MM3 * Rock equipped with Crash Bomb * Rock defeats Ra Thor with the rest of his Special Weapons (he directly states he used all the weapons energy) * Ra Moon, claiming the MM3 RMs to be his, tells them he will have revenge on Wily. The Robot Masters in question are Hardman, Topman, Magnetman, Geminiman, and Sparkman [I'm assuming that Sparkman recharged them? Could be wrong] * Ra Moon then claims that Ra Devil is "[Wily's design], perfected by my power". Ra Devil shrugs off a chargeshot and blasts Rock, leading Rock to land beside Wily * Wily reveals that between the remaining 5 MM3 RMs and Ra Devil, Ra Moon's power is diverted, and thus his attention is divided, leaving him defenseless. * Rock claims that one Chargeshot isn't enough and overloads to bring down Ra Moon - - - - END OF NOTES - - - - Do you see how little Ra Moon does throughout the plot, despite allegedly being the "main threat" here? Yes, he does make a worldwide blackout, but since this is his first action to the rest of the current cast, he is expected to do more than this. He remakes Wily's Robot Masters, which seems fine, and it does establish he can create them (Wily is visibly in awe when he asks if it's a dream). But this is where the problems start for Ra Moon. He remakes Wily's Robot Masters, but that is using someone else's design as opposed to his own planning, as without Wily stumbling upon him, he would've just collected dust. But it's not too late to turn things around just yet. Now granted, in the Archie adaptation, Wily is betrayed before his RMs find Megaman. But then that also adds the question "Ok, you've one upped the usual threat. Can you keep it going?" But sadly the answer is no. As the plot moves forwards, in the original, Ra Moon simply lets Wily use a hologram, that being the most direct he gets before cutting it off and lying to Wily (why someone who's a genius like Wily falls for this, I'll never know). In the Archie adaptation he possesses the MM3 Robot Masters, but until he is reached directly, that's the most he does. But wait, there's still the matter of Ra Thor to get to, right? Ra Thor was created by Wily using Ra Moon's tech in both versions, being made earlier in the original SAR than in the Archie Adaptation. Ra Moon chooses to highjack Ra Thor instead of fighting directly, despite showing him being able to use his wires to perform electric attacks, grabs, and possibly lasers in the Archie adaptation, again hiding behind something he didn't make. Rock defeats him (despite Wily claiming Ra Thor has no weakness, even though Ra Thor takes more damage from Spark Shock. You're welcome.), and in the Archie adaptation, it takes all his remaining Weapon Energy to do so. Ok so Ra Thor's been built up as a credible threat, but again, Ra Thor was made by Wily, and Ra Moon's still alive. So then Ra Moon attempts to up the ante, and reveals he used the Yellow Devil's blueprint's to make the Ra Devil, the REAL final boss of Super Adventure Rockman. The design makes the ripoff factor blatant. There's a few bits of gold, and the Ra Devil's eye looks like Ra Moon's but aside from that, it's a recolor (not that that's always a bad thing). Now, Ra Devil, as stated in my SAR notes is pretty much immune to almost everything (but not everything, since otherwise the Megaman series wouldn't be able to continue as a whole.) This cements Ra Devil's final boss status from a narritave standpoint, unless Ra Moon does the whole "I'll be back" thing. But as we all know, that doesn't happen, and Ra Moon only takes 2 chargeshots to kill. Now in the Archie version it's all down to the wire but in the original he just stands there and takes it. For an ancient supercompter, you'd think moving out of the way would be an easy thought process, but this is Ra Moon we're talking about. But the point still stands: When Ra Moon has run out of things to hide behind, he's defenseless. Sure, he had a decent start with a worldwide threat, but after that he's like one of those "Orcus on his throne" types who doesn't do a thing unless necessary, one of the villain archetypes I HATE. But back to the previous point most of you may have noticed, that being that Ra Moon hides behind others and takes credit. Now, I can hear some of you saying "But what makes it better when Wily does it?" Allow me to explain. Any Megaman fan worth their P-chips knows that the events of the whole series traces back to Wily's jealousy of Light, and that he stole the original 8 Robot Masters to get back at Dr. Light. Ra Moon doesn't even have that. But then Megaman 2 reveals Wily's own creations. It is important to note that in the Archie comics adaptation of Megaman 2, Light makes a remark that "There isn't an original bone in your [Albert's] body". But while Dr. Light could tell that Wily's batch took inspiration from Light's it brings a few ideas to the table (for example, Woodman is made mostly out of Hinoki cypress. Crashman's Crash Bombs latch onto targets as opposed to detonating on impact) Ra Moon doesn't have Wily's jealousy or history with Dr. Light. All we have is the word of a character who was just introduced that he is allegedly ancient and just takes credit for what he didn't do. And while we're on the subject of evil doubles, Wily even went as far as creating Copy Robot in Megaman 1, who matches Rock shot for shot. (Until Rock brings out the Magnet Beam.) But the point is that Wily's character and start is based on improving what was previously made, but UNLIKE Ra Moon, he can back up what he makes. Now yes, Ra Moon tries to outdo Wily, but unlike Wily he doesn't fight Rock directly. Wily, on the other hand does, through the Wily Machines (and eventually the Wily Capsules). And while some of you may point out that the Wily Machines might not count to them, let me tell you this: Ra Moon uses his wires offensively in the Archie adaptation, meaning that he does have the capacity to fight. But then if you argue that Wily doesn't fight you directly, in Megaman Powered Up, he visably flinches as he is hit with buster shots/oversized scissors/fireballs/icicles/bombs/energy arrows/oil/broom/whatever-you-use-depending-on-who-you-play-as. But he takes those hits, directly. Ra Moon only takes one hit and goes down, and even discounting that, he is defeated in a cutscene. No boss music, no energy bar. Just one hit. Wily, on the other hand, is able to keep coming back time and again with the Wily Machines we all know and...know. (And the hair puling Wily Capsules that may make our hair eventually resemble Wily's. Especially the Megaman 7 one.) TLDR VERSION: The reason why Ra Moon falls flat as a character is that he's all bark and no byte, and aside from acting indirectly, he only does a total of 2 things total to directly influence the plot. He can't keep up the threat factor of his first action and sits on the sidelines, and despite being able to defend himself, chooses not to (to the point of just sitting there in Super Adventure Rockman). He doesn't come back for more, and is the "orcus on his throne" type who doesn't do a thing until it's too late. This downfall for such a built up character drags down Super Adventure Rockman as a whole, and is the final nail in the coffin for why most don't like Super Adventure Rockman.

2023.03.27 03:57 Cashling The sloop Peggy: A case of 18th century cannibalism that may have some parallels to the 1996 storyline.

While I was watching the second season premiere, I remembered something I saw on a documentary about cannibalism. I did some searching and found this true story.
In 1766, the sloop "The Peggy" got stuck on some rocks and was unseaworthy or something. At any rate they were stranded and had no food source other than what was on the ship. The ship had wine and rum in the cargo hold so, after they ran out of rations, they had a source of calories.
Another ship spotted them but wouldn't give them food or let them on their boat. They promised to send help for the crew of the Peggy.
Since alcohol is mostly or all empty calories, they were still starving. They decided to "draw lots" to "decide" who to eat. Then they decided to eat the only black man on the ship. The captain refused to eat the man but everyone else on board did.
One sailor was so hungry he ate the man's liver raw. He got sick and went "mad" and died three days later. They decided to not eat the sick man and buried him at sea.
They preserved the human meat but eventually they ran out of it. They decided to eat someone else, but to draw lots fairly this time. The man who lost was the most well-liked and respected member of the crew. Out of respect they decided not to kill him immediately and let him have the night to pray. He went "deaf and insensate" at midnight that night.
Two hours before they were set to kill the man they were rescued. There were seven survivors.
I put spoilers in the title in case anyone wants to speculate on how there could be parallels.
Seven survivors, Lottie's catatonia, the girl foaming at the mouth etc.

2023.03.27 03:55 Ok-Poem-9699 New dog resource guarding me from my other dog

I have had a 2 year old male dog for the last couple of years and recently got a 3 year old female rescue. Her and my dog seem to get along fine until my male dog comes by us when I’m giving the new female attention on the couch. There have been a couple times where she has snapped at my other dog when he comes by us. It seems to be she is definitely resource guarding me. Any ideas on how to fix this behavior?

2023.03.27 03:54 gregdrm [Bulova] The Unreasonable Brilliance of the Bulova Marine Star

[Bulova] The Unreasonable Brilliance of the Bulova Marine Star

Too big for my wrist now (due to change in tastes. Dog unrelated.)
Today I would like to talk about my first automatic watch that I purchased. I have been interested in watches since I was a kid, and even owned a couple of nice quartz movement watches and digital watches, but in 2013 I was finally ready to dip my toe into automatics.
At the time, I didn’t have a ton of disposable income, and I loved the Big Brietling look, and so I guess this made me feel cool at the time, while still not breaking the bank at something like $200 in 2013.
This was my first and only “mall” watch. I know all about Bulova’s impressive heritage (I have a 1969 Spaceview which drives me up the wall) but these days they are more somewhere above Invictus… not exactly where either brands started. Since this purchase, my hobby and income have allowed me to “move up” to Grand Seikos, JLCs, IWCs, Omegas, and a kitchen remodel’s worth of micro brands. And with time, I began to look down on my lowly Bulova. That is, until I took it on vacation.
I wanted something that I could live with if I got mugged, or cracked it on a rock while snorkeling, or just lost because I was too drunk to remember to put it back on.
To preface this, I replaced the strap with a StrapCo rubber strap about 6 years ago, and have never had it serviced. Ever.
It runs amazingly. The movement starts up quicker than my JLCs. And by quick I mean I take it out of the box, put it on my wrist, and the second hand starts moving before I can wind it. I don’t understand how it is so efficient. I wanted to see how well it was actually doing within about 30 seconds of wearing it without winding, and it keeps time within +/- 9 seconds a day which I think is great for a 10 year old $250 watch.
The uni-directional bezel is super satisfying to move and clicks better than a mushroom zombie in Last of Us. The mineral crystal is somehow unscathed after years of wear and still looks great.
Other than being too big for my current tastes, it fits really comfortably on the wrist (the replacement strap might have something to do with that).
I wore it for five days chasing a kid around tide pools, swimming pools, lagoons, and the rain on an island this week and it performed amazingly well.
I was at a resort where EVERY guy was wearing a Daytona in some exotic metal and I still got complimented on it twice (and no one ever says anything about my watches). This is sad for two reasons:
  1. The overwhelming lack of creativity amongst people who can afford something other than Daytonas and don’t.
  2. No one I met who had a nice watch wanted to talk about how excited I am about my Bel Canto pre order, or Spring Drives, or Studio Underd0g, or anything actually watch related.
Anyway! My point is I am amazed at how well this watch performed. It is not fancy, it’s fine without being great looking, it is not expensive, and it should not keep time as well as it does or react to simple movements as much as it does after 10 years and zero services. I’m going to keep this thing forever.

2023.03.27 03:45 Unique-Customer8014 Dog on NYC subway

Today I was riding the subway in NYC and a snobby looking woman brought her dog with a Burberry harness on the train. No crate or bag, so definitely not allowed. The dog proceeded to bark and whine the entire ride while she did nothing. I wanted to ask her why on earth she thought she could just bring her dog on the train but didn’t want to get threatened by other nutters. Wtf is wrong with people thinking they can just bring their dog EVERYWHERE!!! The dog doesn’t even want to be there!

2023.03.27 03:42 gtramontelli Do some dog breeds wag their tails less than others?

I wasn't able to find anything about this with a search. I've had dogs my whole life, almost always rescues. We have had our current dog for a year and he's about 1.5 years old now, and he very rarely wags his tall. Like only if he's fully playing, but never when you call his name or talk to him. With other dogs I've had they would get excited if you said their name in an excited voice. He hears fine and comes when called even from other parts of the house so I don't think it's a hearing thing. Is it just THIS dog perhaps? He's a lab/coonhound/10 other breeds according to embark.

2023.03.27 03:37 spoopybunbun My Boyfriend Never Cleans and it's Infuriating.

I (NB 25) and my bf (M29) have been living together for about 7 months. He doesn't clean. At least, not unless I ask and nag.
I do most of the cleaning. I clean our shower, bathroom floors, mop the kitchen, load the dishwasher, and I clean the sink and stove. I tried making a chore chart and he signed for for vacuuming and unloading the dishwasher. He also covers anything pertaining to his dog.
What is so upsetting to me is that he signed up to do a few things weekly, and he never does them. I get forgetting, I have a terrible memory myself. But when its late at night and he said he'd do it when he got home, and instead he's playing games with his friends, I'm angry.
I get having two different "standards". I grew up cleaning the house top to bottom weekly, and let's just say his previous place with his roommates was disgusting. I actually asked him to clean the bathroom if he ever wanted me to sleep over. There were piles of dog hair in the corners.
Yes, we have talked about this many times. The last time we spoke about it, a few weeks ago, I flat out told him I'm not his maid or mother, and when he keeps promising to do things to take a load off my shoulders and then doesn't, it really shows how little he thinks of me. He always apologizes and says he'll do better, but there's no follow through. Again, I understand being forgetful, I am as well. But if he came to me crying because of something I did/didn't do, you bet your ass I'd set alarms on my phone, calender, write it in my planner, etc. What's even more confusing is he was literally sobbing when I told him how bad I felt over this.
I love him, more than anything. He's my best friend and my rock. We have plans to spend a very long time together. He's perfect in every other way. I don't think this is something I'd leave him over, but it makes me not want to do anything intimate with him because I'm too damn tired to after cleaning all day.
It's 8:30pm. He said he would vacuum when he got back at 6pm. If he doesn't do it by 9 I'm going to clean exactly half of each room and sleep on the couch. I'm so angry I don't even want to talk to him. He knows something is wrong and keeps asking if I'm OK, but I'm so angry I don't want to talk about bc I don't want to fight.
