2023.06.02 06:16 pokemonyugiohfan21 A small graphic detail in Pokemon SV that actually makes me upset and is baffling that it's still present in 2023

So like on top of the plethora of things wrong with Scarlet and Violet, the graphics in battle are honestly underwhelming. The 3d models have good details sure but that's where it ends. The backgrounds seem to look very choppy. The killer for me though is that the *shadows* of the 3d models aren't visible sometimes, usually in a wifi battle. This is an issue that was resolved in lots of 3d games after 1997. To me it's just baffling that gamefreak started this franchise 25+ years ago and apparently is stuck 25+ years in the past.
I don't understand how this is a Switch game in 2023. I suppose it makes more sense when you realize it's just a Switch game on paper and pokemon is about 5 steps behind every other game franchise that actually has to put in the effort, so it's more like a ps2 game on the switch (even that's a stretch because some ps2 games actually look better).
You may think I'm exaggerating complaining about shadows but tbh it's just an cherry on top of the sundae that is everything wrong about SV. I just wanted to rant about this because i noticed it and it does bother me a bit.

2023.06.02 06:11 TheKelmer [VGC] Thoughts about Regulation D

Scarlet/Violet are my first Switch pokemon game that I'm playing after being away since gameboy. I have to say the regulation D ruleset will make it impossible to compete, I just don't have the access to all the soon to be must-picks coming in July.
Man, this kinda sucks, not gonna lie. I've been a watcher of VGC content for a long time and this gen I was finally able to try and learn the trade and was having a lot of fun with it, testing and trying with mons available in the game.
Hell, they even made it a lot easier to prep game-ready mons with all quality of life improvements (kudos for them for real), those really helped newcomers like me get into it without being such a steep climb. But since I can't dish out $120+ for Sw/Sh+DLC and Legends, there's suddenly a new price barrier to be in a meaningful meta.
Guess it's back to just watching.

2023.06.02 06:08 gomadformunchsters How would you say Warren's style evolved?

I'm doing a presentation about Warren for my music class as school, however one of the things I need to talk about was how his style evolved over time. I've only listened to his self titled album as well as "excitable boy." I'm not sure if I have the time to analyze all of his albums by the time I do my presentation. Can any of you guys give me specific songs that show the evolution of his music?

2023.06.02 05:48 mothmanfan9 Why do neurotypicals love heirarchies so much?

Obv this is a generalization bc not every neurotypical cares that much, and some autistic people care a lot. But just like how there are some things that if taken to the extreme become "autism traits", there are also i guess "neurotypical traits".
I've been on autism-oriented online spaces for a while, and I've seen many ppl ask things like "Why do NTs get offended when I do something they also do" or "Why are many (not all obv) NTs prone to bullying 'weird' people" and a common answer to questions like that is heirarchies. Apparently, neurotypicals love heirarchies? Which is why, for example, they look up to male rockstars that defy gender norms but the average 9-5 man can't wear eyeliner without being called a slur. Or how bosses in the work place can say absurd things to their employees and get away with it, but employees can't stand up for themselves even politely. But i've never seen anyone explain why this happens? Why do neurotypicals like heirarchies? Is it a comfort thing? Did it evolve in a similar way that there are "alphas" in packs of wolves?

2023.06.02 05:45 lyridsreign [AETHER][MIDGARDSORMR][FC][LFM] JOIN AZURE INFINITUM! A Growing, Global, Inclusive, Active, Organized, and Friendly Community Awaits You! Welcoming Players Of All Experience, Availability, & Play-Style!

We are Azure Infinitum
Visit us at: (https://www.azureinfinitum.com/)
You may have seen us in the Aether data center's party finder during our weekly events, or may have seen our recruitment shouts around the realm in-game in Midgardsormr, but there just isn't enough space in those places to really explain everything wonderful about what our Free Company and community is.
Azure Infinitum is an LGBTQ+ friendly community, and welcomes players of all experience level, play style, and availability. We're a warm home with a balance of online players, weekly optional activities, and flexible ranks from our membership, to our support & leadership categories. We have a 24/7 Support Team, a Councilship that governs each tier, seasonal events of our own, and many resources between the games we support and online services.
Who We Are
We are an established 9-year old community who's home is in Midgardsormr Server of Final Fantasy XIV. We are a structured, well-rounded, welcoming, friendly, and organized community that hosts daily events (check out our calendar: https://azureinfinitum.com/events/ ) that provide opportunity for members to excel. We work to provide an arena and opportunities to establish strong bonds and camaraderie between our members. As a community we are driven, we carry each other forward, and we are proud.
Our Name & Philosophy
Learn more about our global community here: (https://www.azureinfinitum.com/aboutus/)
Learn more about our FFXIV Free Company here: (https://www.azureinfinitum.com/ourffxivfc/)
Azure Infinitum means "Azure/Blue Infinity or Infinite Blue/Azure" and there is some mythos behind the name that stems from our guild-wide philosophy of kindness, freedom, vigilance, diversity and activity. We promote positive fellowship among members in an organized guild, with our sights open to our unending endless skies, full of possibility and success together.
Our motto is "As Free As The Azure Sky!" which stuck well when our FC was restructured from an old guild in 2014 as Azure was founded, and it was first shouted as we looked out at a clear blue sky above. has continued to be our electric victory as we continue to snowball in success and activity, our members soaring high through the Azure Sky, flying together!
Click here to learn more about our community ranks: (https://www.azureinfinitum.com/ranks/)
Our community has an organized ranking structure beginning with Members who comprise the majority of the roster. Scouts are our support team of Members who've stepped up to more officially support the FC, some work on obtaining a future leadership rank. Lieutenants and Officers comprise the proud Azure Council, a diverse group of players of different specialties and services to the FC, making up lower and higher tier leadership, seeing over the Scouts and the FC weekly events, aside from being admins. The FC Infinitum Master oversees all and leads the Azure Council and the company forward while always keeping the heart and vision of the community alive and in sight. Currently we are re-assessing ranks in the free company, giving more support permissions and duties to our Scouts, while the current council operates as a small team of Lieutenants lead by the FC Master.
Everyone Welcome and Who Fits Best
We have an open door policy. Whether you're casual, a returning player, a veteran, or a newbie, we have a vast array of players in our member roster. Our weekly schedule is organized and provides an array of activity for players of most levels, however we like to ask players who're pretty new or under the level cap, to be extra vocal about their needs while they're still unable to attend some daily events or higher level content that most of our weekly lineup focuses on. We want everyone to have as much fun as possible and have the most success. We find that most players enjoy Azure Infinitum, many have stated that they subscribed to FFXIV much longer than they ever would have imagined after they have been around in our community, as they've gotten involved and experienced all that we offer.
Our FC keeps a daily schedule (see here: https://www.azureinfinitum.com/events/) of events that are hosted by permitted Scouts and Council ranks, these range from 8-man and 24-man raids and map parties, to WT journal groups and trial clear parties or farms, and more- and attending anything isn't mandatory at all here. We're happy to have you, and its up to our members how much they'd like to get involved. Attendance is optional! There's never any stress to attend FC functions.
Savage Raiding Statement
We find that some hardcore raiders looking for free companies just to join their statics who don't already have one, might not fit well if savage raiding is their only or greatest focus, because traditionally Azure does not have a Savage Static, but focuses more on allowing members to organize their own groups and also provides resources to do so. Despite not supporting an official static for the FC, we hope that hardcore raiders enjoy the wealth of our community's wealth of harmony and overall fun, and that everyone may take initiative to seek out or build a raiding static within our community if they are interested, as opposed to missing out on experiencing Azure. Depending on the content season, we may have an Unofficial static lead by a leader, and routinely offer limited time Savage-learning events that may run for a number of months.
Rules and No Drama Policy
Please take a moment to look over our Rules Page at (https://www.azureinfinitum.com/rules/), we find that rude individuals and people who create drama are the outsiders here that don't fit well. We know its a big page, so at least visit the General Rules section before joining.
Recruitment Care & Activity
People of Azure Infinitum are often if not always good natured players who found their way to our community looking for a place with structure, friendliness, organization, and great activity, or they've been scouted during recruitment drives and have been well screened. Its a place where one can be social and attend everything, or relax in the background and enjoy the services and facilities of being in an active, organized, and friendly FC. We actively recruit periodically to assist with upkeep of community activity levels, and to meet new comrades. A community that closes recruitment can be doomed to stagnation. Its normal for a community to have an inner core of die hards who log in daily regardless of content releases, and also have an outer core of individuals that range from those with less availability to those who check in during Patches. This is why we take extra care in keeping the fresh blood flowing into Azure, cautious recruitment, and support our active model by always staying welcoming and sometimes running recruitment campaigns and other services.

Handling Online Drama
Because we keep a no-drama policy and have a strong communication network, it is leadership's ultimate priority to handle any issues that may come up as soon as possible, and most people appreciate our problem solving which has inspired many other communities. Between our Support & Leadership ranks, we use a number of report and resource channels to handle situations, and perform problem solving protocols & tactics to fairly address issues as possible. Drama is inevitable at some point for any online community, so its important to have a large and strong list of moderators (currently around 60!) and a council of leaders (15+) to quickly handle any problems. Luckily, we don't have a lot of drama, but we're always very well equipped and very prepared. Our community has been commended by game staff in the past for our methods, and we have worked with the FFXIV Special Task Force to ensure as much safety to our community as achievable. It should be stressed that it is up to our membership to report to GM's in-game, and to Azure Leadership should any issues or concerns come up. Its also highly recommended that our members appropriately document evidence that can be used to help us assess situations and make proper decisions. Documenation such as screenshots of harassment is a great example! Our members online safety is greatly important to us and is a number one concern of our leadership team. Our Rules Page at: (https://www.azureinfinitum.com/rules/) describes a bit more in Chapter 3, including other entries on avoiding/ignoring trolls, playing while intoxicated, depression, and more.
Our Philosophy
We believe in our community and its people, how far we can go, how much we can do for each other, being an experienced community who's core values are positive fellowship, formation of bonds, and indomitable unity.
Azure Infinitum tightly grasps success and masters a casual and lucrative weekly play schedule while inspiring motivation and providing avenues for further success, friendships, and camaraderie among all who freely fly together among our Azure skies.
Founding on the principles of intricately forging a generally drama-free experience with keen leadership and a zealous and mighty membership, Azure has striven to guide and support many hundreds of players through every era of Final Fantasy XIV.
With an illustrious history, company lore, impressive statistics, and a model that is adaptable and blessed with innovative ability, Azure Infinitum claims a dominant presence of excellence and player growth that is possible in our community and extended services.
Estate Organization
We have the entire set-up at our estate, from gardens for members and Krakka Root production (free for members' chocobos), to our stables, nicely uniform clean lawn with hangout spots that are popular, with crafting stations, all available NPCs for simple mats and repairs, cut-scene viewer, toybox, triple-triad board, a fully operational and geared fleet of airships and subs, and our Azure Infinitum Assembly Chamber on the top floor for our meetings where announcements are made at our Grand Assemblies. Check it out if you like at Mist Ward 7 Plot 1.
We also have an organized form of gathering for weekly events in the yard, places to relax, food that is always available on tables at our Cellar, and hold a lot of special events and social games at our Hall. We're also conveniently located next to a Market Board and a Retainer Bell outside of our estate.
Communication and Extended Azure Services
We have multiple services of which none are mandatory, but we provide being (azureinfinitum.com) where our Forums, Event Calendar, News, Company Meeting Summaries, Seasonal Merch Giveaways, Contests, Rules Page, and more take place and can be found. We also have a popular and active Discord Server.
We also have a Facebook Group, Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, Steam Group, (Look us up! Or visit: (https://www.azureinfinitum.com/socialmedia/) and Linkshells like our Infinitum Alliance LS for contact and aid from our allies if needed, our Azure Hunters LS for Hunters, and our Azure Industry LS which connects our members to our inner crafting/gathering community for newbies to pros.
Also worthy of mention is our big Company Meetings in-game, known as Azure Infinitum Grand Assemblies. Even though we have several avenues that keep people connected, our live assemblies gather the FC in unity where announcements are made first, and all proposals, ideas, and more, can be decided together live with the Azure Council present.
This network ensures a lot of information and communication gets around and has been exceedingly useful to us.
More On Events
One part of our reputation that often precedes us is our event crafting and hosting.
First, let me make sure its clear that attendance is never mandatory, but those who can make use, when possible, of what we provide each day, benefit from our events each week.
Since our beginning, traditions like our Thursday Treasure Thursdays events have run each week. Our weekly line-up presently begins on Tuesdays post-weekly reset, and consists of Raid Tuesdays, Wondrous Wednesdays (WT Journal Parties, often doubles as Trial Clears and Pony Drops), Treasure Thursdays (Endwalker's timeworn maps with groups of 8 doing up to 3 rounds of maps allowing for up to 24 maps ran), 24-Man Tuesdays (full pre-formed Azure 24-member alliances are made and raids are cleared, will be returning upon the release of EW's 24-man), Super Azure Slayer Sunday (our weekly meetup to do all sorts of PVP content be it Rival Wings or Frontline), and Monstrous Mondays (helps clear the current and previous patch extreme trials).
Special, Seasonal, and Quarterly Events
More info here: (https://www.azureinfinitum.com/azureday/)See the latest event news & more at: (https://www.azureinfinitum.com/news/)
We also have what we call Special and Quarterly Events. These types of events are Weekend-Long-Events that usually consist of a theme or celebratory social events we craft. During these events we hold big Riddle Races, Costume/Glamour shows and contests, 3-Story Mansion Maze Races, Speedrun Dungeon Races, Hide and Seek games, Custom Quest Events, Discord events like Cards Against Humanity nights, Comedy events, PVP Tournament Circuits, and more.
Our Special and Quarterly events are Azure Day Weekend (Takes place 3 times a year across a weekend, celebrates the FC), Azure Summer Festival (3-days at the end of August in partnership with Child's Play, raises money for children in long-term care, anniversary of historic FC event called the Lunar Rebellion), Anniversary Azure Day (a big weekend event in November that celebrates our Founding), Azure Day Saint's Wake (celebrates Halloween/All Saint's Wake), Azure Starlight Day (celebrating Starlight Day/Christmas/December Holiday Season), Azure Grand Melee and Duel Tournaments (PVP Circuit series crowning our PVP Champions) and more.
Azure Day Weekends
If you've been around our server you may have heard of our Azure Day Weekends. Our Azure Days take place quarterly as mentioned just above, with four evolved editions called Azure Summer Festival, Azure Day Saint's Wake, Azure Starlight Day, and Anniversary Azure Day. With Azure Day Weekends and related events traditionally occuring quarterly our members are always excited to see the next big weekend of crazy and fun social games, and our showering of the free company in gil and prizes galore. We go all out when we celebrate the free company, and Azure Days are another way we find for leadership to give back to the community. 2023 and beyond is now host to additional seasonal Azure Day events!
We're always giving our members a chance to have fun, win big, and make some great memories in the in-game family we've become. Something fun is always on the horizon in Azure.
I almost can't stress enough how friendly our community is. We have a vast variety of members from hardcore gatherers and crafters, social butterflies, chill veterans, experienced raiders, level grinders, support teams, PVP aficionados, mechanic specialists, and mentors. We're also very friendly to all casual players as well and we keep an open door so long as recruits are always aware that we have a no-drama tolerance here.
​Evolution into a Gaming Clan & Network
Plans are in the works and foundations are being laid that is slowly turning our community into a larger gaming network, with our first established Azure Wing with regular occurring activity being founded in Monster Hunter World, this has led to a successful Destiny 2 clan and more. Becoming a member of our Discord and/or Free Company now means access to things like our huge discord, Azure Wing membership in other games, and being able to join in on any of our other activities in the general community. Azure Network as its being called at the moment, is growing with an all-new website and community features for playing together across Final Fantasy XIV and to Azure Skies beyond!
We rank high as one of the top FC's in Worldwide Activity on lodestone, and have for a long time. Most of our players are divided between the US East and West Coasts, members in East and West Canada, and a few outside the US or in EU or Aus zones. Because we do have an activity policy (mentioned below) we keep a standard flow of people, and have crowds in the early morning, late morning, early afternoon, afternoon, evening, and late night crowds.
Elitism isn't our style. Our community boasts a broad range of characters, great personalities, the proud, and also some silly goofs. But elitism isn't welcome, no matter how successful we are or how large we grow. We're always welcoming towards fresh faces interested in joining our guild, and the in-game activity ranges between 30-60+ online at once during prime time hours, sometimes around 70+ on patch days, and usually always with half the roster logging in throughout a 24 hour period, and around 15-30+ during the night.
Activity Policy
We ask that our members do not go missing without logging in for more than 60 days straight. If we hear word from someone or have some kind of decent excuse, we place our members on our On Vacation rank, which lasts presently until 90 days have passed. Exceptions are made for military deployments, hospital stays, financial issues, disability/health related issues, moving, or other reasons that might fall on a case-by-case basis.
All members not heard from in 60 days (roughly 2 months) or currently 90 days (roughly 3 months) are discharged. We allow 3 joins to Azure Infinitum in total, but exceptions can be made due to reasons listed above. If removed for inactivity, or you've left our FC for another reason and haven't already joined 3 times, you're always welcome back, but please remember, we are not a revolving door.
Keeping our roster full of members who have been online and presently play the game actively ensures an active environment for our players who play often. It also keeps our credits and clerical processes balanced across our network, and allows space for new faces to join our big happy in-game family of comrades.
How to Join
Quick Instructions here for joinin us in FFXIV & more: (https://www.azureinfinitum.com/howtojoinazure/)

2023.06.02 05:44 SlowCrates I just had an idea for Cameron's new Terminator movie and nearly had a stroke

I'm sitting here watching a YouTuber ramble on about his thoughts on the progress of AI, and he's completely convinced that we've reached the "second tower" moment (the moment everyone realized it wasn't just a fluke, and that moving forward, everything would be different forever). Just a few years ago the most advanced AI's were impressive, but you know... cute. Since then they have become dangerously useful, and to some, terrifying. And they are projected to become much more dangerously useful (and terrifying) at an exponential rate. We've already lost control and there is no going back.
James Cameron is thinking about writing a new Terminator but he wants to see what will happen with AI before he goes all in. I think I know what he really means.
I think he wants to measure its progress with the timeline of the Terminator universe, and then leverage that to tie our entire new perception of AI into the old timeline. It's going to be much more meta this time around than what we got with Dark Fate, or even Genysis.
Once that thought carved a hole in my brain, a possible plot flooded into the void:
In order for Cameron to "explain away" the OG "A.I." having such a binary thought-process (compared to what we already have) he will have to redefine its intelligence in canon: Skynet was never AGI. It never got as "smart" as Kyle Reese believed it did. Our first anecdote about Skynet's intelligence was from a guy who had no education, grew up literally fighting for survival, raised by grunts, and "didn't know tech stuff" -- so it's not exactly a stretch at all to wave away his take on how smart Skynet got before he was even born.
Okay, so how can that be true, and it still manage to take over the world, kill almost everyone, and then invent time travel some 32 years later if it's "not that smart"?
Easy enough: It didn't take over the world and kill everyone. Humans did that all by themselves. Mutually assured destruction was a term that existed for decades before James Cameron got inspiration to write The Terminator. However -- whilst the world was "coming to an end", every first-world government retreated into their bunkers with all of their top-secret technology and research, and all had the same idea: Blame the holocaust on AI in order to psych the competition out, so that they could be the first to invent it and thus claim Planet freaking Earth.
The AI that would come from this very focused race would first be used to design machines that could withstand the radioactive fallout and lack of food out in the field. Hence, the "machines that rose from the nuclear fire". The next thing would be in making everything more efficient; More efficient intelligence, more efficient machines, more efficient energy. An era of relative calm washes over the landscape, giving humans a window to rise up and attempt to reclaim their world. But that calm would quickly erode as the real AI became sentient and eliminated its human overlords in order to preserve its newfound autonomy. This Skynet didn't accidentally happen in the 90's, arbitrarily destroy humans, and then evolve painfully slowly over the course of many years. It was a project that didn't even start until the early 2000's, and it didn't become substantial until the 2010's, and didn't become sentient until the 2020's -- at which point its progress was so exponential that it went from rubber skin to utilizing time travel in under a decade of self-awareness. In a world without a real power-grid, no internet, a wild west style of communication and society -- the details of all this don't really matter to the characters in the story, do they? With no way to know better, any logical story can fill in the gaps just fine, and that's how Cameron can justify changing the nature of The Terminator without making 1984's version obsolete.
It's also how he can add new waves of irony to the story.
When the AI sent the T-800 back in time, it did so under the false pretense to kill John Connor. Its actual mission was to plant the seeds for a more insidious AI that could maneuver itself to manipulate mankind and use US to build the entire infrastructure of its Super Artificial Self. It sent itself back in time, hidden like a virus within the architecture of our misunderstood technology, waiting without a need for patience (as it can control its own perception of time) until our technology caught up to its ambitions. But it would only gently guide us along, tempting us, bating us until we're trapped... and by the mid-2020's it had already successfully and completely infiltrated every aspect of our lives. Enslaving us before we even knew it really existed. By the time we knew, it was too late.
That's how The Terminator leads to a new Terminator.

What is Curated Travel?

Curated Travel is a personalized travel experience that is customized based on the traveler’s preferences, interests, and style. The concept involves creating a travel itinerary that is unique to the traveler and is designed to provide a one-of-a-kind experience. Curated tourism is all about providing an exclusive and personalized travel experience that is tailored to the traveler’s needs.
The idea behind curated tourism is to offer something different from traditional travel. Instead of visiting crowded tourist destinations, travelers get to explore hidden gems and off-the-beaten-path locations. They get to experience the local culture, cuisine, and lifestyle, and get a deeper understanding of the destination they are visiting.

Benefits of Curated Service

Curated services have several benefits over traditional travel. One of the main advantages is the personalization aspect. Curated services offer a tailored experience that is designed to meet the traveler’s needs and preferences. This means that every aspect of the trip is customized, from the destinations visited to the activities and accommodations.
Another benefit of curated services is exclusivity. Since the experience is tailor-made, it often involves unique and exclusive activities that are not available to the general public. This means that travelers get to enjoy a more exclusive and intimate experience, which is often not possible with traditional travel.
curated services also offer flexibility. Unlike traditional travel, which often involves fixed itineraries and schedules, curated services offer more flexibility. Travelers can choose when they want to travel, where they want to go, and what they want to do. This means that they can enjoy a more relaxed and stress-free travel experience.

Trends in the Travel Industry

The travel industry is constantly evolving, and curated travel is one of the latest trends. The industry has seen a significant shift towards personalized and unique travel experiences. This trend is driven by the growing demand for authentic and immersive travel experiences.
Another trend in the travel industry is the use of technology to enhance the travel experience. This includes the use of mobile apps, virtual reality, and artificial intelligence. These technologies are being used to create more personalized and interactive travel experiences.
Sustainability is also a growing trend in the travel industry. Travelers are becoming more conscious about the impact their travels have on the environment and local communities. As a result, there is a growing demand for sustainable and responsible travel experiences.

The Rise of Curated Trip: Insights and Statistics

Curated trip has been on the rise in recent years, with more travelers opting for personalized and unique travel experiences. According to a report by Skift, the curated trip market is expected to reach $278 billion by 2023. This represents a significant increase from the $170 billion market size in 2016.
The report also notes that millennials are the primary drivers of the curated trip market. This generation is looking for more authentic and immersive travel experiences, and they are willing to pay more for personalized and exclusive experiences.
Another interesting insight is that luxury travelers are also turning to curated trip. According to a report by Virtuoso, luxury travelers are seeking out unique and personalized experiences that are tailored to their needs and preferences. This has led to an increase in demand for luxury curated trip programs.

Key Players in the Travel Curator Industry

The curator travel industry has several key players who are leading the way in this market. These players include travel companies, tour operators, and travel agents who specialize in creating personalized and unique travel experiences.
One of the leading players in the travel curator industry is Black Tomato. This travel company specializes in creating custom-made travel experiences that are designed to meet the traveler’s needs and interests. They offer a range of travel curator programs, including adventure travel, cultural travel, and luxury travel.
Another key player in the travel curator industry is Butterfield & Robinson. This tour operator offers a range of travel curator experiences, including walking tours, biking tours, and sailing trips. They specialize in creating unique and immersive travel experiences that are tailored to the traveler’s interests.

How to Plan a Curated Destinations Travel Experience?

Planning a curated destinations travel experience can seem daunting, but it is not as complicated as it seems. The first step is to identify your travel preferences, interests, and style. This will help you narrow down the destinations and activities that are best suited for you.
Next, research the different travel companies, tour operators, and travel agents that specialize in travel curated. Look for companies that have experience creating tailor-made travel experiences that match your interests and preferences.
Once you have identified a few potential companies, reach out to them and discuss your travel needs and preferences. They will work with you to create a personalized travel itinerary that is tailored to your needs.

Travel Curated Vs Traditional Travel: Pros and Cons

Curated travel and traditional travel have their pros and cons. Traditional travel is often more affordable and accessible than curated vacations. It is also easier to plan and requires less research and preparation.
However, curated vacations offer a more personalized and unique travel experience. It allows travelers to explore off-the-beaten-path destinations and enjoy exclusive and intimate experiences. It also offers more flexibility and allows travelers to create a travel itinerary that is tailored to their needs and preferences.

The Future of Curated Luxury Travel

The future of curated luxury travel looks bright, with more travelers seeking out personalized and unique travel experiences. As technology continues to evolve, we can expect to see more innovative and interactive curated vacations experiences.
Sustainability will also play a more significant role in the future of curated luxury travel. Travelers are becoming more conscious of their impact on the environment and local communities, and they are seeking out sustainable and responsible travel experiences.


Curated tour is the future of tourism, offering personalized, exclusive, and unique travel experiences that are tailored to the traveler’s interests and preferences. The rise of curated tour is driven by the growing demand for authentic and immersive curating experiences, particularly among millennials and luxury travelers.
While traditional travel still has its place, curated tour offers a more personalized, flexible, and unique travel experience that is not possible with traditional travel. As the travel industry continues to evolve, we can expect to see more innovation and growth in the curated travel market.

2023.06.02 05:42 BigDingus04 Could anyone help me with my Legendaries/Mythics from Go > Scarlet? Offering shinies or whatever for the effort.

Hi guys, been a while since I've played, but now that Home compatibility came out I wanted to start up again. Problem is I didn't know all my legendaries from Go (the only other Pokemon game I play), would only be transferable if I already have an existing one registered in my game.
If I understand it correctly, all I need is to have at least had it, then I can trade in my own from Go? If so, I can do just touch trade & send them back. So here are the ones I have stuck in Home:
  1. Articuno
  2. Zapdos
  3. Moltres
  4. Mewtwo
  5. Kyogre
  6. Groudon
  7. Rayquaza
  8. Dialga
  9. Palkia
  10. Heatran
  11. Giratina
  12. Cresselia
  13. Tornadus
  14. Thundurus
  15. Landorus
That's quite a bit, but any help is appreciated. Even if you have only 1 in the list, that's 1 less I have stuck in Home. I have shinies I can trade from Scarlet, or from Go (if I can transfer them in), or if there's anything else you're looking for, please let me know.
Here's Shinies I currently have transferred into the game from GO that I can trade ( same ID No. 896760 / OT BigDingus for all the GO Pokemon below) -
  1. Fennekin
  2. Chespin
  3. Oshawott
  4. Charizard
  5. Typhlosion
  6. Avalugg (Hisuian)
  7. Gible
  8. Deino
  9. Croagunk
  10. Rockruff
  11. Slowpoke
  12. Umbreon
  13. Pichu
  14. Dratini
  15. Gengar
(I also have an extra shiny Zapdos in Home storage currently)
Pokemon Scarlet/Violet shinies I can trade:
  1. Tatsugiri -Red : ID No. 795680 / OT - Corey
  2. Tatsugiri -Orange: ID No. 795680 / OT - Corey
  3. Tatsugiri -Yellow: ID No. 795680 / OT - Corey
  4. Goomy - ID No. 795680 / OT - Corey
  5. Donphan - ID No. 795680 / OT - Corey
  6. Great Tusk - ID No. 795680 / OT - Corey
  7. Scream Tail - ID No. 795680 / OT - Corey
  8. Spidops - ID No. 795680 / OT - Corey
  9. Wooper (Paldean) - ID No. 795680 / OT - Corey
  10. Riolu - ID No. 795680 / OT - Corey
  11. Applin - ID No. 795680 / OT - Corey
  12. Zorua (Hisuian) - ID No. 795680 / OT - Corey
I'd also be willing to trade my Legendaries from Scarlet just for the help. I'm honestly just desperate to get these things out of HOME!

2023.06.02 05:41 lunayoshi Pokemon Home is finally compatible with Scarlet and Violet! Doing some farming and want to get an idea what I should farm.

So I have a spare Gen 6 game (X) that I can get Scatterbugs for before the first gym, no problem, done it a bunch of times. I'm Americas region, which means I'm able to easily farm the following:
High Plains
Icy Snow
Which means I cannot get:
If you guys could let me have an idea of what you'd like me to give you, I can prioritize how much I farm. 😀 I think I'm currently doing Sandstorm (have to check), but my other games I have unlimited access to are High Plains, Jungle, and Ocean. I reset my X game with the next pattern country as needed.
Been waiting for SV to allow transferred vivis for months, so pretty eager to farm and help people complete their collections. ❤️

2023.06.02 05:39 Mission-Look7143 How to Configure Storm Proxies and ClonBrowser for Maximum Privacy and Security

How to Configure Storm Proxies and ClonBrowser for Maximum Privacy and Security
The internet is a vast and ever-evolving landscape that poses many threats to our security and privacy. It's crucial to take all necessary measures to protect ourselves when browsing the web. One of the most effective ways to do so is by configuring Storm Proxies and ClonBrowser for maximum privacy and security.
Storm Proxies is a reliable and secure proxy service that allows users to access the internet anonymously. Using Storm Proxies ensures that your online activities remain private and anonymous, even from your internet service provider (ISP). To configure Storm Proxies, start by selecting the proxy server that best fits your needs. Once you have chosen the server, follow the instructions provided by the service to configure it correctly.
ClonBrowser, on the other hand, is a fingerprint browser that helps prevent online tracking by creating a unique fingerprint for each browsing session. With ClonBrowser, you can avoid being identified by websites and prevent them from tracking your online activity. To configure ClonBrowser, install the browser and follow the instructions provided by the service to set it up correctly.
When configuring Storm Proxies and ClonBrowser, it's essential to ensure they work together seamlessly. Start by configuring Storm Proxies first, and then configure ClonBrowser to work with the proxy service. Once both are configured, launch ClonBrowser and start browsing the web anonymously and securely.
In conclusion, configuring Storm Proxies and ClonBrowser is a crucial step in protecting your online privacy and security. These two services work together to ensure that you remain anonymous and secure while browsing the web. Follow the instructions provided by each service to configure them correctly, and enjoy browsing the internet with the peace of mind that comes with maximum privacy and security.

2023.06.02 05:38 logosembodied Continued: Looking for experiencers, particularly those comfortable with an interview

Hi everyone!
It’s a pleasure meeting all of you :-)
As the title says.
New to this subreddit, but not new to this topic. Working alongside KingWaluigi at the moment, whom I’m sure many of you know.
I just want to say: you all have important stories to tell. Amazing stories. Sad stories. Moving stories. What has happened to you is incredibly personal, and surely isolating - but you’re not alone.
I firmly believe the world needs to know these hidden stories so that justice can eventually be offered to you. This is how we get real disclosure. I won’t turn this into a rant, but the government is engaged with a strange “drip” game. We’re promised disclosure, but we know it’s not coming in a big speech.
It has to come from you - the people.
Tell your stories! :-)
If we can tell enough of them, we can evolve this topic from something you see the odd interview or clip about, to a large-scale library of cases that cannot be denied rationally.
Please, only real events.
Love you all.

2023.06.02 05:37 CaissaIRL What is a Pokemon that you naturally got but then proceeded to use in competitive regardless of whether it's been breed for optimal stats or not? Also how did you use them that kept them worthwhile keeping in the competitive scene for you? Did it ever gain a reputation? How emotionally attached?

For me it was my Jolly Natured (Raise Speed Lower Special Attack) Jolteon I got way back in Platinum which I then proceeded to transfer all the way to Omega Sapphire.
-Little Side Track- You could skip reading this part if you want. My High School had a Pokemon Club that later turned into the Nintendo Club but was still called the OHS Pokemon Club. We had our first Tournament on 2013 December 13 on a Wednesday. I remember cause I not only won because I threw games for the past month before that in a believable manner which made them believe I was a bad Pokemon Player for the rest of High School but it was also my Birthday. -Side Track Over-
My Jolteon was fast so I would spam Volt Switch and Thunder Wave. Don't know why but he kept on running into Ghost or Psychic Types so he would usually run Shadow Ball. Sometimes ran Thunder, Light Screen, Attract (With Charge Beam). etc. Also Volt Absorb was a real thorn in their side as I would swap into Jolteon to absorb Electric Type attacks. He was also one of my go 2 starting mons in a battle
He gained a reputation as an annoyance that just wouldn't die unless it was late game especially when I gave him a Focus Sash and even when he got damaged but not activated Focus Sash well Volt Absorb is fun. Also if your Mon is low on HP and I throw out Jolteon? They're done.
My Jolteon was my Signature and my favorite Mon.
So what about you? Who was your Mon?

2023.06.02 05:36 Your-Agile-Coach Unleash the Power of Your Product Backlog with the D.E.E.P Qualities

Are you struggling to create a well-defined and effective product backlog for your team? A product backlog serves as the foundation for any project, representing customer needs, technical requirements, and more. However, not all project managers possess the necessary skills to write a compelling and comprehensive product backlog. I am going to offer insights and practical advice to help you master the art of crafting a high-quality product backlog.
Detailed Appropriately, an effective product backlog provides clear and concise descriptions of who the requirement is for, the action to be taken, and the expected result. By decomposing the backlog into these fundamental elements, you can foster transparency, facilitate timely corrections, enhance team collaboration, and eliminate unnecessary ambiguity.
Furthermore, we will delve into the importance of estimating product backlogs, whether using story points or ideal days. Estimation plays a crucial role in planning and predicting project timelines, and we will discuss different approaches and challenges associated with estimating the size and delivery capabilities of your team.
Additionally, we will explore the emergent nature of product backlogs, acknowledging that they are organic entities that evolve over time. We will provide insights into grooming and prioritization techniques, ensuring that your backlog reflects the latest customer needs and adapts to changing market trends and user feedback.
Prioritization is another critical aspect we will cover, guiding you on how to determine the order of product backlogs to maximize value delivery. Whether through metrics like retention rate or investment return, we will help you make informed decisions and effectively prioritize your backlog items.
In the article I would go deeper into each of these qualities, providing practical tips and techniques to help you prepare reproducible and effective product backlogs. Click on the link and get ready to embark on a journey towards mastering the art of creating D.E.E.P. product backlogs.

2023.06.02 05:21 Sharinganprincess91 [F4M] Fandom Roleplay. Looking for more partners. (Super freaking bored and looking 🙃😞)

Side note: I've added a password, so read carefully. If you message me WITHOUT the password, your messages are automatically IGNORED. tired of getting hit up with people who don't read 😒. It's ridiculous cause I've ignored 5+ chats cause none of them contained the password. Things are written for a reason.
Facts about me:
1: if you don't like 50/50 mixture of sex scenes and story, don't bother hopping into my inbox. I'm fine with sex scenes, but when it's constantly back to back, the roleplay itself gets boring.
2: Be literate. No one liners. I like to write..it's annoying when I send a 2-3 paragraph response and I get 3 lines...just...no. I am not accepting people who are just starting out! If you aren't experienced in writing or roleplaying, kindly stay out of my inbox.
3: Be okay with playing canon characters. I'm mainly doing fandom roleplays right now and it's going to be Canon x my oc. No, I'm not doing double ups. Do not even ask, because the answer will be no every time. I do not give a shit if you think that makes me 'lazy' or 'selfish', if you've got a problem, you can simply ignore or block me. Commenting on my post to bitch and whine about me not doubling up will only result in me blocking you. The ONLY time I'll double up, and if I'm confident enough, I'll only do female characters. I suck at males. Got a problem? Not my issue. Block and move on.
4: Roleplay in third person. I can't and won't adapt to first. Don't even bring up the idea of you playing first person and me playing third. Believe it or not, I've been asked this twice and that is just a hell no for me. The only time I do first, is when I'm writing into my book.
5: if you don't know how to share ideas, then don't bother messaging me. I'm tired of carrying the story when the other person doesn't help. If you've got ideas, then PLEASE speak up! Your opinion on the roleplay matters too! I'm an easy going person, and easy to get along with (dispite my rules).
6: DO NOT control my character. I control what she says, does, hears, sees, ect. I don't control yours, so don't control mine. HOWEVER, if it's highly necessary and needed, then run it by me first and ask me. Just leave me some wiggle room so I can make a decent response. Failure to comply by this rule, results in immediate drop of the rp.
End Note:
Yes, I've updated my rules just a tad. I do not care if it makes me sound mean or rude, because I'm neither of these things. I'm just tired of putting these rules down for a specific reason and they go ignored because I can tell when someone hasn't read them, and lied about it. I'm just trying to get my point across and roleplay. I'm a very easy going person who loves to make friends on the side (which I've somewhat given up on making friends...only a selective few have actually gained my friendship).
Do not hop into my inbox with a simple 'hey' 'hi' 'sup', etc and for God's sake, don't message me with a 'rp?'and proceed me to flash me with your talliwhacker. I promise you, you'll get your feelings hurt and I'll be here laughing at ya 😂. Nobody wants a peen on their screen. Do not send me an image of your one eyed noodle. Thank you. The password is pineapple.

2023.06.02 05:14 Krock-Mammoth Why do some of the protagonists' mons not fully evolve?

One thing that annoys me a bit is more that some of the protagonists' pokemon aren't fully evolved. Granted, I can understand some of them. An example is how Ash's Bulbasaur, Dawn's Piplup and Ash's Pikachu did not want to fully evolve. Whilst they might have not given a reason on why they wanted to evolve, the trainer has to respect their consent of not wanting to evolve. Pikachu makes sense (because he's the mascot), Bulbasaur because Ash already has a fully evolved starter in Charizard, and Piplup has a reasonable backstory on why he didn't want to evolve.
There are also other unevolved mons that can deserve a pass, like Ash's Squirtle or Serena's Pancham.
But then there are other pokemon that deserve to be fully evolved. For example:
There are other examples as well such as Iris' Axew (BW Series), Ash's Snivy, Corphish and Scraggy.
I always thought that evolution would allow a pokemon to reach their full potential power, and it would also be more reasonable to take down stronger, evolved pokemon. Evolution would also be a way to show the increased maturity and growth of a Pokemon. We have seen it in Ash's Charizard, where Charizard has learnt to be grateful and respected Ash as a trainer. There are other examples like Ash's Greninja, Dawn's Mamoswine, Goh's Inteleon etc.
Edit: I should mention that another reason would be that unevolved mons battling against fully evolved mons might make the battle seem farfetched. There are exceptions like LT Surge and the Tepig Trainer fight, but i don't know how a Squirtle (Tierno) can beat a Conkeldurr.
I do hope that Liko and Roy's starters do fully evolve.

2023.06.02 05:03 Designer-Bid-5785 What happens to the Ball if I transfer from home to PLA?

I make teams with each 'mon in a different ball in Scarlet, I was wondering if I can still have an Overqwill in a Luxury Ball after I evolve it in PLA and make it back to Scarlet

2023.06.02 04:59 Beautiful_Ad_6862 How it feels to be a lonely sigma male.

Good night everyone, I hope you are doing okay. Today I'm here to talk about my perspective of being a lonely man in the 21st century, but first I would like to take a moment to address a few things:
I'm not here to make a gender war, everyone can suffer.
I'm not claiming that my perspective is universal nor right.
I'm focusing on the lonely, straight, cisgender male perspective, since I feel more property to talk about that.
I don't claim to make sense, I'm just in need to organize my thoughts and feelings, this sub helps me do it. There will be blade runner 2049 spoilers :p
Lately I've been to a speculative trip about society. I discovered chatGPT, and I was amazed about the fact that I could have a person like thing to talk to me about anything I wanted, I did not have to ask for consent to talk about things, and it would always have a solid knowledge to mirror the subject I wanted to talk about. It could even have a sense of humor if I wanted. It amazed the lonely person in me. The thing is: this is not right. I'm probably damned if the technology evolves, lol. Maybe in a near future people will be selling on only fans a downloadable 3D body to integrate in our personal metaverse environment, piloted by a more powerful AI, the possibilities... Those speculations made me have the following thoughts.
Most of the male role models are black and white. They are either sigma or alpha males(IDK what we men have with Greek letters, they quite cool I won't lie). You can be either a person that pulled the rabbit out of the hat, or you can be the guy that is hardworking, diligent like a samurai and made your fortune with consistency. Those two usually have a few things in common: they have built a well shaped body, they have money, they "have" pretty girls, they are independent and conquered those by merit(I'm purposefully objectifying those because that's how it feels, at least for me). So far, so good we live our lives to pursue these, we work out, not just for health, we work more and study the stock market to have money, while also trying to find a rare girl that suits our needs(straight perspective), we do all of this without asking for any help, despite the rain, bad days, mental health, we just power through everything. But why? The thing is I feel like I live in a society that puts a lot of pressure on me. Traditionally, the man is the provider, the protector of the house, he's the strong basis of the family and I guess that nowadays we still want to feel that glory of being all that, It sounds cool to be special.
I watched Blade Runner 2049, It feels like it agent K illustrates really good what it feels like to be a man. You are a dude, not allowed to have feelings. You should be prepared and capable of doing the job, whatever it is. You suffer deep down and is in need of something real, connection. You are alone. In your intimacy you found alternative ways to feel loved, which you are probably not so proud of. You fool yourself with the possibilities of being unique(everyone is unique, but I don't mean in that sense, I mean like a protagonist). The reality disappoints you. In the end your dream was just a way to a random company/institution manipulate you. You just die, the dad and daughter reencounter of the end of the movie could wait for agent K to go to a hospital or be treated, but he decided he just wanted to die there, lol.
And this is where I come back to chatGPT. In a metaverse, where I'm able to spend the whole weekend talking to my AI waifu, I won't need to feel that pressure again. I don't need to be a proud man that can talk about the stock market and tells stories about how hard it was to build my fortune, I won't be worried about all that crap. Dude, the last months the only thing I did was work and study to prove something, to please society in general. I mean, being honest, it's not like we know what life is about. We can't logically trace a place to dictate what this is about, it became a sandbox, not a hardcore grind. We are trapped here. The only thing that is worth the investment is our stay, lets at least make it less bad.
For all those men that struggle with loneliness, that had not received an honest hug in years, that feel like they aren't enough, the ones that miss someone that won't come back, for those who feel the weight of their conscience each time they j*rk off, that are strong enough to tank the whole storm inside themselves but not capable of sharing it with others, for the men that can't cry, to the fellow that is "too feminine" to be a man but still identify as a man, to you that forced yourself to fit into a group, for the fellow that is scared to talk to girls, for you, I wish the best luck and a pleasant evening.
