2020.11.30 16:00 PinkFishTaco Best friends

I recently been moving back and fourth between NJ and Ohio, helping my brother and his wife out. (Kids house etc etc being a single guy in Covid America has given me a chance to reconnect with my brother and his family) These trips are about 2 months then I been going back home to where my best friend is. I’ve known her for over 10yrs now. Her grandparents live next door to my parents, technically she is “the girl next door” I started having feelings for her maybe 3 yrs ago. I kept it to myself because I didn’t see any interest from her in me. She was always dating some guy too. Saw guys come and go. Always respected her and we have this amazing friendship now. So leaving the first time for Ohio she mentioned how much she missed me n I just chalked it up to yeah I miss my friends I miss her. Of course just living with the fact I like her I wouldn’t read into it. So I go back to NJ we chill per usual, she offers to drive me back to Ohio. Some guy she is seeing at the time gets lil weirded out ( at least it’s what I think u know jealous n what not. Who wants a girlfriend to drive their guy friend of any amount of time 8 hrs away n staying for minimum of a day) so he makes sure he goes for the ride. They drop me off stay at a hotel or w.e. N come back next day to say bye n head back home. She’s home maybe 2 days later n txts me that the ride home was awkward that she was literally crying the second she she got in her car n for a good portion of the ride. N that this guy is now out of her life. Which sparks the question of why she’s so sad n it’s all because she misses me. I came out confessed that I had been carrying a flame for her for like 3 yrs now. Here we are almost a month later carrying a long distance relationship. Waiting for the holidays for the best present of my life. I’ve never been happier. I literally may have a heart attack when I get to see her in person.

2020.11.30 06:06 tyvokka101 Detailed Timeline and Age of Beth Harmon in The Queen’s Gambit Show

Hey, I wanted to make a detailed timeline for Beth Hamon’s age in the show to help with any confusion. I loved the show so much, but at times I was a bit lost as to the exact timeline and Beth’s age during some important milestones. I know it’s not particularly important, and the show is absolute phenomenal regardless. I just thought it might help with any confusion. Hopefully this post can help, and if there’s anything I missed please let me know. I’ll also point out any inconsistencies at the end. The inconsistencies are small, and do not take away from the fact that this is an absolutely amazing series. Please note that any timestamps are approximate times, and not quite exact. This is a very long post, so bear with me (there’ll be a TL;DR of her age at key milestones at the end). Warning, spoilers ahead!
In the first episode, Beth is 9 years old when she reaches the Methuen orphanage. This is stated in the episode description. This can also be confirmed when she played Mr. Shaibel and beat him. In Ep 1 at 34:20, she confirms that she is 9 years old and that she turns 10 in November. This is extremely important, as we now know that her birthday is in November (this is essential in determining her age the rest of the series).
Fast forward to the second episode, and we now have Beth grown up. At the time of her adoption at 4:28 in Ep 2, we know that Beth supposedly “turned 13 last month”, but in actuality is already 15, as she was about to point out until she realized the Headmistress was lying to make her seem more valuable. This means that Beth spent about 6 years at the orphanage. Now, this is an important time to know exactly how old she is. We know for certain that she’s fifteen when she’s first adopted. There’s evidence to support that at the time of adoption, it was before her birthday in November, meaning she would be turning 16 by the end of that year (which is confirmed to be 1963). This explanation combines elements from Ep 2 and from the first half of Ep 3 as well, so it’s a bit of a longer explanation.
In Ep 2, at 24:42 approximately, there are magazines that show JFK on the cover. JFK died in November of 1963, meaning it’s safe to assume that it isn’t November yet. To add on, one of the magazines specifically references his speech in Berlin on June 26. Now, this could be an older magazine, but so far, the evidence would support that it isn’t November yet, as JFK seems to be alive. In Ep 2 at 25:09, Beth looks through the chess magazine and sees a section entitled “Coming events in the US and Canada”. Most of these tournaments have their dates for 1963 somewhere in September or in October, continuing to add evidence that at this point in time we are in 1963, but before November. We know the Kentucky tournament specifically takes place on October 20-22 in 1963 as shown in the magazine in Ep 2 at 27:09. At the end of Ep 2, just after Beth won the Kentucky tournament, Alma mentions the Cincinnati tournament. We know it’s right after Beth won the Kentucky tournament on Oct 22, 1963. This is also confirmed in Ep 3 at 1:30, where it says “Cincinnati, 1963”. We are not sure whether Beth’s birthday has passed, so she is either still 15 or just turned 16 during the Cincinnati tournament. This is important to know because we now lay the foundation that Beth Harmon is 15 in 1963 at the Kentucky tournament, but by the end of 1963 she will have turned 16. As well, we know she plays in Pittsburgh after Ohio from Ep 3 at 10:40 when Alma mentions the article about her winning it on the plane. It is also stated that over the holidays, Beth plays in Houston before 1963 ends, which is mentioned at 11:20 in Ep 3 when Alma mentions it to Beth.
The next part of Ep 3, after Beth’s interview and her wins in Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, and Houston, is shown using a montage. We’re not exactly sure how much time is passing, but we see Beth becoming more popular, getting nicer clothes, and having more money. Our next piece of information for the timeline is when Beth is invited by Margaret to the Apple Pi party. At the party in Ep 3 at 20:48, the song being featured is “You’re the One”, by Petula Clark, but sang by the Vogues. This song came out in 1965, which suggests that at least a year (all of 1964) has passed. So, because Beth is 16 by the end of 1963, she would be 17 by the end of 1964. This means that in 1965, at the time of the Apple Pi Party, Beth is either 17, or has already turned 18. We are unsure of her exact age as we do not know whether or not the party takes place before her birthday in 1965.
The next timeline piece we get is in Las Vegas at the US open. In Ep 3 at 22:54, it states that Las Vegas is in 1966, though we’re not quite sure exactly when in 1966 it takes place (yet). Since Beth would have turned 18 by the end of 1965, we know that she is either 18 or 19 in Vegas, dependent on whether her birthday in November has passed. Now, there is evidence to support the fact that the Vegas US open takes place before November, and even before the summer of 1966. First, we know that Beth graduates after the US open takes place. We see this at 8:10 in Ep 4, meaning that Beth graduated in June, and so the Vegas US open was before that. As a result, Beth is 18 in the Vegas US open. We also get a layout of her plans in the coming year or so after graduation. In Ep 4 at 9:15, Beth mentions Mexico City is 2 weeks after her grad, and that her next major competitions will be the US Championships and Remy-Vallon in Paris (She did not mention at this time when exactly the US championships or the Paris tournament would be, but it’ll be talked about a bit further down in this post). This is also confirmed in Ep 4 at 11:29, where it says “Mexico City, 1966”. This would mean that Mexico City takes place most likely in early July of 1966, meaning Beth is 18 when she plays here.
After Mexico City and Alma’s death, Beth returns home and ends up being called by Harry Beltik. Harry mentions in Ep. 5 at 3:11 while calling Beth that he’s in Lexington for the summer. This would further support the fact that Mexico City was in early July of 1966, and that the Vegas US open was earlier on in 1966. This is also further shown when Beltik mentions in Ep 5 at 15:43 that he’ll be back in his apartment and will begin to take classes again, continuing to support that Harry and Beth were together during the summer and perhaps just the beginning of school in 1966, where Beth was 18 years old. As an extra piece of info, Beth’s Chess Magazine review she’s reading and just bought in Ep 5 at 23:40 states that it’s the August edition on the cover, continuing to show the timeline of their fling.
Our next piece in the timeline is in Ep. 5 at 27:45 where it says “Ohio, US Championship, 1967”. This would be the US championship that was mentioned by Beth before leaving to Mexico, and we can see that there was a flash forward in time as it takes place in 1967. Since we know Beth will have turned 19 by the end of 1966 (read paragraphs above for reasoning), Beth is either 19 or 20 at the US championship in Ohio, again dependent on whether her birthday has passed that year. Here we are a bit unsure, but we can conclude it is close to her birthday. The main reason for this is that in Ep 5 at 43:46, when Beth and Benny are drinking after Beth just beat him in the US Championship, Beth states that the Paris Tournament is in 5 weeks. Beth also mentions in Ep 5 at 42:04 that “it’s pretty cold in Paris that time of year”. We can then assume that it’s around or during winter somewhere between Oct-Dec in Paris in 1967, meaning the Ohio US Championship would be in September-Oct. The only other small piece of information potentially saying when the US Championship was is in Ep 6 at 35:02. When Beth returns home from Paris, she receives a call and answers it. Right next to her is a calendar that is still in the August month of 1967. It is possible that Beth left in late August or early September to attend the Ohio US Championship in 1967, and then headed to New York with Benny and then onwards to Paris. This could explain why the calendar was left in August, as we know that Beth did not return immediately home after the Ohio US Championship. If this is correct, it would mean the US Championship in Ohio is around early September of 1967, which would place the Paris tournament in mid-to-late October of 1967, meaning Beth would be 19 in both of them. This, however, is not hard enough evidence to cement this theory. As a result, it is better to just leave it open as we do not know exactly when the US Championship in Ohio or the Paris tournament were.
Paris was confirmed to be in 1967 in the opening sequence Ep 1 at 1:00. Paris is once again confirmed in Ep 6 at 19:34 that it is in 1967. We do not know when exactly Beth’s birthday is in November, nor do we know the exact dates of the US Championship in Ohio and the Paris Tournament. Beth would be officially either 19 or 20 in both the US Championships and the Paris Tournament, depending on when in 1967 they take place. Benny also mentions that the US winner gets invited to Moscow, though we don’t know when Moscow takes place (yet).
Regardless, we know that Beth was in New York with Benny between Ohio and Paris in 1967, meaning that Beth was either 19 or 20 when she was with Benny (possibly was 19 then turned 20). As a fun fact, we know Benny’s age outright. Beth mentions in Ep. 3 at 33:17 that Benny was 8 years old in 1948, meaning he was born in either 1939 or 1940 (depending on if his birthday passed). Regardless, this means that we can track his age with Beth’s. In 1966 at the Vegas US open, Benny is 26-27, whereas Beth is 18 and has not yet turned 19. And when Beth is with Benny in New York, Beth is 19-20 and Benny is roughly 27-28.
After Beth buys the house from Alston, she begins to revamp the house and cleans everything. She also gets a letter from the Christian Crusade, offering financial support for her when she goes to Moscow. We are unaware how much time passes, and when exactly Moscow is (as of right now, that is). Beth also mentions in Ep 6 at 42:57 that she has a tournament in San Francisco at some point, but we don’t know exactly when.
We do however know that enough time passed that it is now 1968 during Beth’s drinking binge. This is seen in Ep 6 at 51:51 on the banner for the Kentucky State Championship. It is unlikely that so much time has passed that it is late in 1968, so we can probably assume Beth is 20 here when she meets Harry at the Kentucky Championship again. It is stated that Beth was supposed to attend the championship (It is not confirmed in the show if she was to play in it, or simply there to spectate. Annette Packer mentions that she’ll see her inside, and the administrator, Ed, just mentions that play starts in a few minutes in Ep 6 at 53:40, not that Beth in particular will be playing. Though, it could easily be insinuated that she was supposed to). We just know that Beth walks away.
Sometime, presumably shortly after, Jolene visits Beth to let her know that Mr. Shaibel died. It is during this time we actually get a rough estimate as to the date of the Moscow Tournament. In Ep 7 at 4:40, Beth talks to Jolene the night before Mr. Shaibel’s funeral. We know that it is 1968, but we are unaware of when exactly in 1968 this happens. Beth, however, mentions to Jolene that she is supposed to go to Moscow at the end of the year, meaning Moscow is most likely played in Nov-Dec of 1968. We have no real information as to A) when the Kentucky state championship was in 1968, B) when and how long Beth’s drinking binge lasted and C) how much time passed between Jolene giving the money and Moscow.
Finally, Beth arrives in Moscow, which is confirmed to be in 1968 in Ep 7 at 26:22, when it says “Moscow, 1968”. We are unsure the exact date of the tournament, but Beth mentioned previously that it was at the end of the year. Cold temperatures are shown throughout Moscow (people dressed up, car gas being visible, leaves have fallen off trees entirely etc.). This would most likely mean that Beth is in Moscow around Nov-Dec of 1968. Beth is either 20 or 21 during the Moscow Tournament. This is also supported in Ep 7 at 40:40 when Luchenko asks Beth how old she is, and Beth responds by saying: “I’m twenty- “, but she is cut off by Luchenko. She most likely was going to say something other than 20, and given that she should either be 20 or 21, she most likely is 21 at this point in the Moscow Tournament.
If you read all this, thank you so much! I just wanted to hopefully shed a little light on the timeline for Beth Harmon, since I love her character so much. In the next section I talk about the inconsistencies I noticed, but these are extremely small, and is not meant to degrade the show’s quality. The show is absolutely amazing.
Inconsistencies:
There were a few inconsistencies as far as the timeline goes in the show. The first one comes in Ep 3 at 14:36 when Beth is doing the interview after her wins in Kentucky, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh and Houston. Beth mentions that Mr. Shaibel taught her when she was 8 years old, when we know that Beth is 9 when she first arrives at the orphanage. This is rather small, and it could have just been Beth forgetting exactly when she learned.
Another inconsistency in the timeline was when Harry Beltik reunites with Beth for the summer in 1966. In Ep 5 at 4:16, Harry asks Beth: “What happened to that gawky kid who kicked my ass 5 years ago?”. Now, this would be an error as we know that Harry and Beth are together during the summer of 1966, and the Kentucky championship was in October of 1963. It had only been 3 years since it happened. This was most likely a writing error. In another post someone pointed out that in the book Beth was 13 when she beat Beltik in the Kentucky championship and that’s why he says it’s been 5 years (as a writing error), but I cannot confirm this. Regardless, in the show this is an error, as Beth was 15 when she beat Beltik and is only 18 when she and Harry reunite.
This inconsistency with Harry was found again when in Ep 5 at 7:44, Beth says to Harry: “You know, you’re not the same person 5 years ago either”. Again, this was most likely a writing error, as it would have only been 3 years since they played each other in the show (cannot comment about the book).
The final inconsistency I noticed was the Venus song by Shocking Blue in Ep 6 at 47:22. Obviously it was an amazing scene, but as some have pointed out, the song was issued in 1969, which means it would not be possible for her to have listened to it since we know that Moscow, the final piece of the timeline, takes place in 1968. Again, it’s an amazing scene though.
Conclusion:
Thanks for reading all this. It’s an incredible show and I was hoping to just help fill in the timeline clarification or for those just curious. All these pieces come together to help visualize the timeline for Beth. Again, by no means do the inconsistencies make the show bad in any way. The show is one of my all-time favorites, and it is one of the most well-made shows I’ve ever seen (I’ve watched a lot of TV)! If I missed anything, please let me know!
TL;DR:
Beth is 9 when she arrives at the orphanage. Beth gets adopted at 15 in 1963. She is 15 during the Kentucky Championship in 1963, and is either 15 or 16 at the Cincinnati tournament in 1963. By the end of 1963, however, she is 16. Beth is 17 or 18 when she gets invited to the Apple Pi party. Beth is 18 at the Vegas US open. Beth is 18 when she graduates, goes to Mexico City, and when she is with Harry in 1966. Beth is 19 or just turned 20 when she wins the Ohio US championship, stays with Benny, and goes to Paris in 1967. Beth is 20 by the end of her drinking binge in 1968, and when she goes to Mr. Shaibel’s funeral. At the end of the series, Beth is 21 in Moscow.
Edit #1: People mentioned her birthday was shown in the file to be Nov 2, 1948 from Ep 1 at 4:22. That was mb for missing it, but it does raise into question if that itself is an inconsistency. If that’s her true DoB, Beth would have been only 14 when she was adopted and when she played the Kentucky Championship. She would essentially be 1 year younger at every point than in the timeline I gave. It would seem to make more sense if her bday was Nov. 2, 1947 instead, since this would make her 15 at the Kentucky championship and would line up a bit better with a couple other milestones. It’s also possible that that the record was inaccurate, since records back then weren’t exactly “extremely accurate”. We also know that her mom was not quite sane, and was on the move a lot. She seemed to keep Beth isolated, so it’s also entirely possible her mom gave Beth an inaccurate DoB. That being said, it does say her Bday is Nov 2, 1948!

2020.11.30 05:19 infiniteii 24 [M4F] Ohio/ Online: A rant about a new country and my struggles to maintain and make relations here.

A 24 year old International Grad student at The Ohio State University from India. Growing up the US seemed to be the pinnacle of research. People coming back from the US was treated as royalty but everyone had this question of why did they return back? The answer would always be maybe they didn't make it or had strong bonds connecting them back to their roots. So, I never paid attention to it thinking it would be different for me. Cut to now, I will not deny I have thought of going back because I do not understand the culture here. People are so individualistic that honestly if I die tomorrow no one is going to ask for me until the room I died starts to smell. People are engrossed in their phones and other people in Grad school are just in that phase of life that they do not think they need new friends, I dont blame them when they do talk about their friends from college it sounds like they had a better time with them and formed their packs.
I have had pretty fun times with my friends from back home too but the problem is our timings do not match and when I do manage to stay up till late at night to match their times, everyone looks at me with rose tinted glasses and tell me what a dream I am living in. How do I explain this to them that I want people to talk to?
So I turn to Reddit to see if its just a problem that I face or do other people feel the same too. But no such luck. I have no expectations people would read it but if I didnt put it out there I wouldnt have tried. I am looking for people who can be my rock and after a long day off work I have a few constants I can talk too about. Listen to them and how their day went. Discuss random pointless things, and probably some meaningful topics as well.
Tinder and other dating apps just dont do justice to a person. Judging other people on their looks and how a starter of a conversation impresses them. I am not that guy. I feel confident saying no women would fall for me the second they see me but after talking to me there is a tiny probability.
A little about me. I am awkward and shy in the beginning and really have to put in efforts which are very clearly visible when I try and talk to people initially. I'm a goofy character who overthinks and obsesses over all random streams of thoughts. The quarantine was/is pretty hard on me as someone with no connections in the country and with everything closed up and school not really much of a challenge I tend to think and overthink things a lot. I'm the kind of person who takes ages to make friends but once I get comfortable enough with people I tend to open up and not let go people so easily. Hit me up to get to know me more.

If you do end up reading to it and just relate to it but are not interested in the post. I'd really get to know how do people cope up with a completely new life in a different country where the culture is completely different and what was your experience of it.

2020.11.30 01:34 paracrazy I was physically assaulted by one of my students and now I’ve been subpoenaed to appear as a witness. Do I need to get a lawyer and what can I expect in the court room?

I am a teacher in Ohio. Last year one of my (25F) 5th grade students (11M) physically assaulted me during class. He had to be restrained by three adults to keep him off of me and was taken out of the school in handcuffs. I really am not sure the legal process at all, but I think that I “pressed charges” on him. I went down to the juvenile detention center and had to fill out a statement.
I’ve gotten a letter in the mail every month saying that the case has been continued until x date. Two days ago I received a letter that says the trial happened, he denied the charges, and that I am now required to come to court. I’m not sure what happens next, do I need a lawyer? And what can I expect to happen in the court room? I am very anxious about going. During the school districts expulsion hearing for the student, his dad screamed at me for about 10 minutes about how horrible I am and how I’m ruining the boy’s life. The only experience with court I have is what I’ve seen on TV, so I have no frame of reference for what will happen.
Bonus question: Is this a criminal, civil, or some other type of court case?
Thank you for any advice you can offer.

If its possible I'll most likely overclock fairly early on, but not a huge priority.
Are there any specific features or items you want/need in the build? (ex: SSD, large amount of storage or a RAID setup, CUDA or OpenCL support, etc)
I would like at least an SSD for sure and 16GB of RAM. Other than that I have no specifics.
Do you have any specific case preferences (Size like ITX/microATX/mid-towefull-tower, styles, colors, window or not, LED lighting, etc), or a particular color theme preference for the components?
I would prefer a side window and LED lighting. I have no color theme in mind.
Do you need a copy of Windows included in the budget? If you do need one included, do you have a preference?
No I do not.

Thank you very much for your assistance!

2020.11.29 20:05 hcsntlns Élections US (2)

https://spectator.us/reasons-why-the-2020-presidential-election-is-deeply-puzzling/
L'article plus intéressant de ces derniers jours sur le coup d'Etat électoral du 4 novembre. Vous n'y apprendrez rien de nouveau - sauf à être un lecteur de feuilles torcheculatives comme Le Monde ou le New York Times - mais la compilation des faits produit un effet saisissant.
To say out-loud that you find the results of the 2020 presidential election odd is to invite derision. You must be a crank or a conspiracy theorist. Mark me down as a crank, then. I am a pollster and I find this election to be deeply puzzling. I also think that the Trump campaign is still well within its rights to contest the tabulations. Something very strange happened in America’s democracy in the early hours of Wednesday, November 4 and the days that followed. It’s reasonable for a lot of Americans to want to find out exactly what.
First, consider some facts. President Trump received more votes than any previous incumbent seeking reelection. He got 11 million more votes than in 2016, the third largest rise in support ever for an incumbent. By way of comparison, President Obama was comfortably reelected in 2012 with 3.5 million fewer votes than he received in 2008.
Trump’s vote increased so much because, according to exit polls, he performed far better with many key demographic groups. Ninety-five percent of Republicans voted for him. Catholics also supported Trump in higher numbers. He did extraordinarily well with rural male working class Whites.
He earned the highest share of all minority votes for a Republican since 1960. Trump grew his support among Black voters by 50 percent over 2016. Nationally, Joe Biden’s Black support fell well below 90 percent, the level below which Democratic presidential candidates usually lose.
Trump increased his share of the national Hispanic vote by two-thirds to more than four-in-ten. With 60 percent or less of the national Hispanic vote, it is arithmetically impossible for a Democratic presidential candidate to win Florida, Arizona, Nevada, and New Mexico.Bellwether states swung further in Trump’s direction than in 2016. Florida, Ohio, and Iowa each defied America’s media polls with huge wins for Trump. Since 1852, only Richard Nixon has lost the electoral college after winning this trio, and that 1960 defeat to John F Kennedy is still the subject of great suspicion.
Midwestern states Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin always swing in the same direction as Ohio and Iowa, their regional peers. Ohio likewise swings with Florida. Current tallies show that, outside of a few cities, the Rust Belt swung in Trump’s direction. Yet, Biden leads in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin because of an apparent avalanche of black votes in Detroit, Philadelphia, and Milwaukee. Biden’s ‘winning’ margin was derived almost entirely from such voters in these cities, as coincidentally his Black vote spiked only in exactly the locations necessary to secure victory. He did not receive comparable levels of support among comparable demographic groups in comparable states, which is highly unusual for the presidential victor.
We are told that Biden won more votes nationally than any presidential candidate in history. But he won a record low of 17 percent of counties; he only won 524 counties, as opposed to the 873 counties Obama won in 2008. Yet, Biden somehow outdid Obama in total votes.
Victorious presidential candidates, especially challengers, usually have down-ballot coattails; Biden did not. The Republicans held the Senate and enjoyed a “red wave” in the House, where they gained a large number of seats while winning all 27 toss-up contests. Trump’s party did not lose a single state legislature and actually made gains at the state level.
Another anomaly is found in the comparison between the polls and non-polling metrics. The latter include: party registrations trends; the candidates’ respective primary votes; candidate enthusiasm; social media followings; broadcast and digital media ratings; online searches; the number of (especially small) donors; and the number of individuals betting on each candidate.
Despite poor recent performances, media and academic polls have an impressive 80 percent record predicting the winner during the modern era. But, when the polls err, non-polling metrics do not; the latter have a 100 percent record. Every non-polling metric forecast Trump’s reelection. For Trump to lose this election, the mainstream polls needed to be correct, which they were not. Furthermore, for Trump to lose, not only did one or more of these metrics have to be wrong for the first time ever, but every single one had to be wrong, and at the very same time; not an impossible outcome, but extremely unlikely nonetheless. Atypical voting patterns married with misses by polling and non-polling metrics should give observers pause for thought. Adding to the mystery is a cascade of information about the bizarre manner in which so many ballots were accumulated and counted.
The following 10 peculiarities also lack compelling explanations:
  1. Late on election night, with Trump comfortably ahead, many swing states stopped counting ballots. In most cases, observers were removed from the counting facilities. Counting generally continued without the observers.
  2. Statistically abnormal vote counts were the new normal when counting resumed. They were unusually large in size (hundreds of thousands) and had an unusually high (90 per cent and above) Biden-to-Trump ratio.
  3. Late arriving ballots were counted. In Pennsylvania, 23,000 absentee ballots have impossible postal return dates and another 86,000 have such extraordinary return dates they raise serious questions.
  4. The failure to match signatures on mail in ballots. The destruction of mail in ballot envelopes, which must contain signatures.
  5. Historically low absentee ballot rejection rates despite the massive expansion of mail voting. Such is Biden’s narrow margin that, as political analyst Robert Barnes observes, “If the states simply imposed the same absentee ballot rejection rate as recent cycles, then Trump wins the election.”
  6. Missing votes. In Delaware County, Pennsylvania, 50,000 votes held on 47 USB cards are missing.
  7. Non-resident voters. Matt Braynard’s Voter Integrity Project estimates that 20,312 people who no longer met residency requirements cast ballots in Georgia. Biden’s margin is 12,670 votes.
  8. “Over votes.” Pennsylvania mailed out 1.8 million ballots, but 2.5 million ballots were returned. In 10 Pennsylvania counties, Biden secured more votes than there were registered Democratic voters. In Nevada, there are 77,982 more votes in the presidential election than total ballots cast; Biden’s current margin is 33,596. Ballots exceeded the number of residents by 2.5 times in some Georgia precincts.
  9. Serious “chain of custody” breakdowns. Invalid residential addresses. Record numbers of dead people voting. Ballots in pristine condition without creases, that is, they had not been mailed in envelopes as required by law.
  10. Statistical anomalies. In Georgia, Biden overtook Trump with 89 percent of the votes counted. For the next 53 batches of votes counted, Biden led Trump by the same exact 50.05 to 49.95 percent margin in every single batch. It is particularly perplexing that all statistical anomalies and tabulation abnormalities were in Biden’s favour. Whether the cause was simple human error or nefarious activity, or a combination, clearly something peculiar happened.
If you think that only weirdos have legitimate concerns about these findings and claims, maybe the weirdness lies in you.

Site: http://oyster.libsyn.com/
Synopsis: In a not so distant future, due to overwhelming carbon emissions, The Earth is on the brink of becoming uninhabitable. These conditions are made far more horrifying because the available housing shelters (that can produce sustainable air quality) will only be able to house 80% of the world’s total population. To try and save the human race, every person has a government-mandated microchip implanted in their brains to attempt to facilitate the migration of a portion of the population to an underground shelter. In order to decide who gets to be protected and who must stay above ground, the government implements a value scale they have determined based on “usefulness” to future society. If you are valued at a 50 or above, you will be chosen to enter the bunker, and, if not, you must stay above ground and face the end of days. “Neuron” (which acts as both a prestigious brain implant and also a software company) is folded into a sanctioned branch of the government called, “The Ministry of Experience.” Their job now is to develop technologies and software that can replicate the human experience above ground. But what is far more pressing is The Ministry must find a way to reduce the use of resources, or they will run out of all survivable assets before being able to relocate to “Eden” - the one place above ground that might be salvageable in a few years time. Whether Eden will be ready in time remains to be seen, but its existence is literally the last hope for the human race surviving. In a drastic effort to cut emissions and resource usage, “The Oyster” is created. The Oyster is Nirvana - A state absent from the mind while being filled with complete pleasure and bliss. What, then, happens when reality begins to fade and The Oyster is all that remains?

2020.11.29 09:28 ThrowRAthemanguy Should I (17M) pursue a toxic relationship with my ex(18F) even though she said that I was using her for sex and she's already talking to another guy?

First off, I’m extremely new and I’m sorry if there is something I did wrong or if you need more information
I am a 17-year-old black male (let’s call me J) while my ex is a white 18-year-old female (let’s call her H). We both attended the same school in (insert small town name) in Ohio. Some of the details are changed for anonymity, but the just of the situation is accurate.
We dated for upwards of 4 years, starting in 7th grade and ending in 11 (right before Covid hit). Our relationship was rocky, and honestly speaking, we were both a little toxic. To cite a specific instances, I would try to start confrontations over little things, and she would be controlling of who I hung out with. She also wanted to stay celibate till marriage, which I was okay with. I was there for her, not her body. Earlier sophomore year of our relationship I felt really depressed. I felt that I was not the right fit for someone like her, and tried to break off the relationship so that she could have someone better. She begged to stay with me and we ultimately ended up forgetting about it. A lot of the times we were at odds, whether it is me wanting to go to my best female friends birthday party after I hadn’t seen her for 3 years, or the fact that we didn’t go to the right slushy place, because she didn’t like their slushies. It was hard, but I knew when it came down to it, I loved her and she loved me, right? Fast forward and the day that Ohio schools got shut down, she pulls me into our school library to break up with me. She said that she’d always love me, that she still loves me, and maybe we could make it work later on. I texted her later that week to ask for reasons and she said that we had been drifting apart (which I did not agree with) and that she didn’t feel like I wanted to date her anymore because I tried breaking up with her. During quarantine, I got even more depressed, crying almost every night and thinking about things no 17-year-old should be. I ultimately ended up cutting contact with her for about 5 months. At this time she dated another boy and broke up with him (I don’t care about this, but it comes in use later). Fast forward to when quarantine lets up, and I meet a new 17-year-old female friend (let’s call her P). P was friends with H and me, and regularly invited us and a small group of other people to ice cream or bonfires. On one such occasion, H and I were waiting for others to arrive in her basement, when H started flirting with me hardcore (literally sitting on top of me while I was laying on her couch), and to be honest, I liked it. We planned a kayaking trip, where we relayed our feelings for each other, e still saying I still love her, and her saying that she still loved me too. We started secretly sneaking around, going on “workouts” and going “hiking” when I started getting doubts. One night I told her that I ended up getting drunk at a small gathering (yeah, I went to a party during the lockdown, yes I regret it) and lost my virginity. This came up in a conversation, and she all but had a panic attack. She cried and said that if it wasn’t me she was talking to, she would have broken up with me (her boyfriend during lockdown was not a virgin either, and neither was she {for separate reasons}). She got over it but kept bringing it up with “ I wish you wouldn’t have made that mistake” or something along with that nature. Honestly, I didn’t feel bad. I don’t know if I should, but it was all I could think to keep myself living at the time. My parents were not fans of H and all but hated her for what she put me through. This, along with my other family members, and my best friend not supporting our relationship ultimately made me cut ties with her again. I said that she really hurt me when she broke up with me and that I can’t trust her, and our relationship is turning into what it was before. She cried, but It ended. She kicked me out of the group chat that I was in with P, and told my best friend lies about how I was only trying to use her for sex (we didn't have sex). Looking back I only broke up with her because of everyone around me’s thoughts on her. Fast forward and she’s going through a rough patch in her life and needed someone there for her. I tried being her friend and took her out for ice cream and food. At this time, I realized I still love her and I told her about it. She said that she still loved me and that I was the only person she would ever love. We made out that day, and I thought that we might actually be fixing this. I was ready to build another relationship from the ground up, but better. Unfortunately later that week she said that she started talking to another guy and was happy with him. She said that maybe we could try again later. I was crushed but only had myself to blame. I wish I could have told her I needed more time instead of diving in headfirst into a relationship I wasn’t ready to work with. Even now, as I think about it, she was the only one that I actually felt cared about me. For a lot of the bad, there was so much good and we contemplated spending our lives together. Even now as I talk to other people and date around, I still don’t feel the same thing that I felt with her. Am I just conditioned or do I genuinely love her. My question to you Reddit is should I pursue her? We can still be friends, and I know that, but I know that I still love her and she still loves me and friends would never work because we would always be trying to date each other. Should I pursue her, or try to move on? It’s literally eating away at me night after night, and I’m not sure if I can handle it.
Thank you for reading!

2020.11.29 04:37 averybabery Why is my health and safety a privilege now?

(Looking for some validation. Input/advice also welcome.)
I’m so fed up with my workplace. I’m doing my best to stick it out until I hit the one-year anniversary for the sake of my resume but it’s honestly getting harder every week.
For reference, I’m in Ohio where just yesterday we had ~17,000 new COVID-19 cases and, not to mention, I’m also in one of four counties with the highest public health risk.
Basically, I’m not allowed to work from home unless I suspect I have symptoms or potential exposure. From there, I’ll be sent home and ordered to get a COVID-19 test done recently and if itcomes back negative I’m expected to come right back into the office.
Apparently the company policy now is case managers who are performing under productivity expectations are required to work in the office 5 days per week in order to improve productivity. Granted, I know my productivity isn’t the greatest. At this point I don’t really care because as I stated previously I’m just trying to make the experience look stable on my resume (it’ll hardly be worth it tho because apparently supervisors aren’t allowed to give references or letters of recommendation). I’m also an overworked, under-experienced case manager at a Medicaid-based county agency who is expected to produce 95 billable hours per month. It’s garbage, I’ve accepted that.
However what I’m finding it difficult to accept is that fact that my personal health and safety and comfort is being treated like a privilege. At least it really feels that way. As time goes on and this pandemic just gets worse and worse, I’m getting more uncomfortable with going out into the community and even going into the office. Quarters are pretty close and it’s difficult to appropriately social distance a lot.
My supervisor also pressures me to go into the community. She’s a nightmare in general (micromanaging, gaslighting, etc) and this is making my patience run thin. I’ve stated and explained multiple times my discomfort with meeting clients face-to-face even with social distancing and PPE. I’ve even had to explain recently that I would like to refrain from going into the community due to my roommate expecting a major surgery soon. It was a miracle I got the surgery date off thanks to me disclosing it’s a transition-related surgery (she is also LGBTQ and tries to connect with me over it). But I couldn’t take any additional days off or work from home to help him with his recovery and to ensure I don’t bring home COVID or other illnesses. Again, on the basis of productivity.
TL;DR: I believe I shouldn’t have to be “productive enough” in order to feel safe while working.

2020.11.29 03:04 mrhunt37 36 [M4F] Ohio - Unique, quick witted, and looking for someone to hold my attention

Hello there! I am a 36 year old male from Ohio who, like most of you, miss the new organic connections that we all took for granted. While I still get plenty of social interaction, there is that ‘someone special’ missing from my life and has been for quite some time.
I am an engineer by trade, lifelong student by choice. I love motorcycling, technology, games, and anything that goes fast. I’m 5’10, and in quite good shape... think of Brad Pitt’s physique in ‘Fight Club.’ I only mention that because I certainly don’t look like a body builder, but depending upon your preference that could be a good thing.
I am a unique blend; while my default is alpha, I take a lot of pride in my ability to understand situations and can actually be a compassionate, sympathetic ear. I am also extraordinarily pragmatic, and try to only offer advice once I fully understand the situation.
I’m also super geeky with tons of topics, and have a lot of energy. I’m the king of talking about everything you shouldn’t talk about on a first date... somehow they’ve all managed to end amicably, even when we realized we wanted different things.
I am a hopeless romantic by nature, and I’m not overly picky. I do, however, like a rather petite girl.
Went for getting something up fast as opposed to waiting for perfect, as sometimes perfect can be the enemy of good.
So, don’t be a stranger, let’s talk and see if there’s any connection!

Hello.
43/M/Ohio here. Recently separated, depressed, and bored with life. Hoping to meet a new female friend. Preferably one who is open minded, creative, and intelligent. Dating sites tend to have too many expectations attached to them and I’m not ready for that yet.

2020.11.28 18:58 Pinecone26 2 guys one me. idk what to do!

So the other day I met this guy that really like and we've gotten super close. But also there's another guy that I kind of like and dated for a while and asked me a big question. if I wanted to have s3x with him. Keep in mind I'm 14 and he's 14. the other guy, we'll call B, is really into me. The guy that asked the question, G, kind seems into me. The only reason why he asked me if he wanted to do the dirty with was for a bet. B lives I Ohio and G is right here. I really like both guys but I'm lesbian and I'm supposed like girl because I feel attraction to girls more than guys. I don't know what to do and I asked a really close friend about it and she said that she didn't know what to say because we're talking if I want to lose my virginity for this guy. She recommended me to post on here and so that's what I'm doing. Also, might add that G called me last night and was jerking off the whole time we talked and that's when he asked me. I'm scared that I could get pregnant but I also really like him, But I also Really like B. Any advice?
Edit: I told G that I wasn't going to do the nasty with him and I broke up with B because I can't mentally handle a relationship right now.
Edit 2: I know I don't have very many comments but I think I did an asshole-ish move because now B's brothers ae texting me to take him back and G's friends are calling me a wimp and a goody-to-shoes. They have NO idea of what I've done in the past. any advice now?

2020.11.28 18:12 throwaway128759356 I'm not sure if this allowed here

So I couldn't think of a better community to ask this question. So I've been on a dating app (plenty of fish) and met someone on there then we started talking on whatsapp. She told me she's a staff sergeant and works for the department of defense as an airborne paratrooper. I discussed whether we could phone call or video chat and she said at the base she's at (in the u.s. apparently previously in Texas now in Ohio) that its forbidden, no visitors are allowed until their mission is over yet she never discussed whether that would ever be a possibility.
She said she could call but she uses a base phone with a prepaid card and doesn't have much charge left but unlimited text. Shes sent me countless pictures of herself in uniform and without and with her name and I asked for her to use specific pictures i.e. holding up a different numbers of fingers and stuff. I guess at first it seemed kinda weird because she told me she's on base while she's paying off her loan for her house she owns but its totally furnished? She's asked me for money to help her pay for it and I respectfully declined and she didn't push further but has asked a couple more times while being shot down each time. So if she's not on base she doesn't get paid and maybe that's the reason she's on base while she pays down the loan?
I dont really know anything about the military, the air force specially and all of the rules and protocols you have to follow so I guess I was suspicious because she's very quick and heavy with the emotions and how she texts so I was worried it was a scam because that's how some romance scams go?
So I guess is it normal to not be able to talk on base stationed in the u.s. air force bases and no visitors while missions are ongoing and is there any indicator what missions might be? All she's described her work is doing paperwork so I don't know what that pertains to..
Am I being paranoid for no reason or being carefully scammed?

2020.11.28 06:38 LoftedJester Fighting this speeding ticket

Hello! Last Tuesday I (19) received a speeding ticket. Unfortunately, it is my third in 12 months and a misdemeanor in my state (Ohio). I have had my license for 3+ years and never had a ticket before this year, 2020 sucks. Now I believe the this ticket is bogus for the following reason. I was caught going 50 in a 35, but on a road that people commonly speed on. There was moderate traffic traveling around 45+ mph. I was behind a group of cars and slowly approaching them at the 50mph mark. The cop was traveling in the opposite direction, we were both in our respective left lanes. He was surrounded by other vehicles, but as he saw me he flicked his lights on and did a 180. Vehicles in the distance behind me were gaining on me going faster than 50 mph, but it felt like I was the first vehicle he was able to turn around and pull over without hitting another vehicle. He read my speed via radar while moving. Additionally, I feel like I was mildly profiled for my vehicle, a 2007 Civic Si with tinted windows, something that looks faster than it really is. Weather was not an issue, it was dry and sunny out. The officer also told me I would not have to appear in court and that I could pay my ticket online, but when I try to do so it says "Ticket is not payable online," not sure if there is anything I can do with that.
I really think this ticket is ridiculous, but I have a court date set for Tuesday. I would really like to get it thrown out but I think I need more to my argument. Ohio State law says " No person shall operate a motor vehicle at a speed greater or less than is reasonable or proper, having due regard for the traffic, surface, and width of the street or highway and any other conditions, and no person shall drive any motor vehicle in and upon any street or highway at a greater speed than will permit him or her to bring it to a stop within the assured clear distance ahead." I believe my speed was reasonable given the surrounding traffic, and I was still at a more than reasonable distance behind the next vehicle to stop if it was necessary (It wouldn't have been).
Any advice or experience would be awesome. I don't know how the judge is and this is my first time having to go to court so I am not sure what to expect, but I am not going out without a fight. Hopefully I won't get the maximum sentence of 60 days in the slammer.

2020.11.28 06:19 OddfellowJacksonRedo Cursor Disappears After Steam Game Session

System: Mac (Big Sur OS)
Application: Shadow Official desktop client for Mac
Problem: Whenever I shut down my game and revert back to the Windows desktop, I find the cursor has gone invisible (still functional but you have to look for the hover effects to know where it is) and I have to completely exit out of the Shadow app, shut it down and restart to restore the cursor’s visibility.
Data center: Chicago (Ohio account)
Date problem started: approximately 3 days ago
Actions taken: I‘ve already done searches of this issue and tried all prior suggested solutions (CTRL-ALT-DEL and cancel, checking off the “hide cursor while typing” in mouse settings, switching back from Windowed to Full screen mode, making sure screen resolution isn’t over 150%, etc.) but none of these corrects the issue.

2020.11.28 04:18 Mobsteroids 23 [M4F] Ohio/US/Online- Life long, heart to heart, genuine connections are what I seek. Come chat, come cuddle and let’s see what happens! :)

Good evening Reddit, thanks for taking the time to read my post! This isn’t my first time posting here, no, but I hope it’s my last. With the pandemic and my current lot in life, I’ve been pretty lonely and absolutely starved for love, affection and someone to grow with. Due to a nontraditional path after high school and a gradual shift away of lives, I’m here again searching for a consistent friend and something more.
I’m currently located in the EST of midwestern America. I’m a sleep deprived night owl which in the past wouldn’t be an issue, but now is one. I’m looking for someone near by, in the region or completely understanding of the time differences that may be between us. If things progress, I’d love something physical (when safe! 😷) and in person. Regardless, consistency would be great. And please, no ghosting :(
Buckle up for what’s coming next! I’ll do my best to wrap things up quick...(ish)
What I’m Into, open to discussing but certainly not limited to
Me personally? I would like something that’ll last. Weather that be something casual or more permanent, I’m open to discussing and exploring it with you.
About me
YOU
Thank you, stay say and please wear a 😷!!
❤️
Please help me w/ my photo game
