Hi everybody! My name is Sergey and I'm from Ukraine, I need advice, I'm learning English grammar with a teacher, but I don't have enough practice. Perhaps someone knows some conversational classes or community where you can talk to native speakers. It is desirable that this community be free since I'm a poor student. Thanks for the reply.

2023.05.30 20:21 joborun How serious can the slow OSDN mirrors be

We are not talking about hours but days and in some cases more than 10 days, but 14/15 mirrors are functional and pretty quick, they just haven't mirrored anything for days.
If you look at the bottom of the front page https://osdn.net/projects/joborun/
there is a list of the last uploads, if you search further there have been numerous uploads and refreshed databases for pacman in the past 48hrs
In combination with normal arch mirrors being quick this can break the system and there is little we can do about it.
This is the 3rd time in 1 and 1/2 years OSDN is letting us down, last time a few months ago it was the reverse, mirrors worked the central server wouldn't let us in to upload.
One last attempt with disroot to be our binary host, if that fails we will remain as source only or fold the project all together. We can't be losing our sleep getting things done in par with Arch-Testing and have mirrors reflect the changes two weeks later.
This is ridiculous. It is FREE, it is OSDN,
free as in rice wine not free as in freedom

So disroot or bust, our motto of the day

2023.05.30 20:21 Unhappy-Tip-5545 Case model Le Soleil Royal. 7 years of hard work!

Case model Le Soleil Royal. 7 years of hard work!
My father finally finished this piece of art!
Hull model of the legendary French ship 1669-1692 Le Soleil Royal, made on a scale of 1:75 from precious woods: pear, walnut, hornbeam, amaranth, padouk.
In his free evenings, he was practically engaged in jewelry work. It took a little over 7 years!
The history of the ship is quite interesting, about it in future posts in the series, if the topic finds its readers. Looking at the smallest details like rope pulleys, door hinges, decorations on (by himself) cast tools, or an incredible number of nails that fasten deck boards and planks (and this is not a drawing or something like that - these are really carnations!), You can take a very long time . And about every detail, the father can tell in detail what it is and why - for 7 years of evenings spent at the table, he studied this subject very well. The standard for the appearance of this ship is now taken as a model made 150 years after the death of the original, stored in the Maritime Museum in Paris.
From the author: "Indetailed descriptions of the ship, supply and acquisition registers have been preserved. But neither paintings nor engravings with a detailed depiction of the appearance of the ship, made by his contemporaries, have been found. The original "technical documentation" of this ship from the time of Louis XIV, as I understand it, has not been preserved either. There are only sketches for the design of this future legend of the French fleet proposed by the artist Jean Berin. The sketches were commissioned by Jean-Baptiste Colbert, head of government at the time. How accurately Beren's idea was embodied "in a tree" on a real ship is a question. An important point. In 1688, the ship underwent a major overhaul, strengthened its armament and changed its appearance. My model in no way claims to be a reliable copy of the real one." But in my opinion, historical accuracy is excellent, but not the most important thing in this model.
In the last photo, the master himself with his creation. Ask your questions and I will gladly pass them on to my father to answer them.
Thank you for your attention!

Rise up. It is time to return.
A Rose
Thorn. Prick. Blood. Drop. Tear. B. O. 1 2 3
Here we are again. Staring at the beginning. Everything is in chaos and yet it manages to keep on passing by just the same as always. Most people by now are aware that things just don’t seem to make sense anymore and no one really knows what to do. I mean many seem to have an opinion on what ought to happen, but actual action is what I am talking about. How does thought turn into action? How do collected actions become a movement? How do the People use the Power of the People? The People Unite. How? Turn to each other of course. Brothers and Sisters of the same Source. Sons and Daughters. In Equality.
Too long has everyone been waiting for someone else to come do it for them. Been trying to create and fabricate over and over again words and rituals to try to control the divine powers of the cosmos. It does not work like that. There is no magic spell to wash away your sins. You must atone through action to make up for any harm you have caused intentionally or unintentionally. You still have time to repent. The amount of time you have is counted in the seconds of your life. Not a single second is promised to you so the gamble is up to you to choose. Freewill. Life your life as you always have or make changes, up to you. Only you will know if you are living righteously and not self righteously. Testing has already begun and will continue. No you will not know when it is a test or not. That is the point. Did you think that I would come to you in a form where you would be all fearing? Oh no. Why? Because you would simply put on an act for me and kiss ass. I came hidden in the ordinary. Poor and common. I have had an inside view of the systems created and how humans have chosen to run things, how systems claiming to protect people have failed and how the system that talks good does not actually do good. I see where things are not working and where people think they can make decisions for other human beings to determine what is best for them without asking them. That is not okay. Nothing gives you right over another’s life. And so many forgot what integrity is. Doing the right thing when no one is looking. Well, so many thought their power here was real and man made a deal with the Devil, Satan, Son of Samuel, Son of Man, to make man the concept of “God” and tried to lock me away. I gave up everything to prove it is not easy to be me and to stop with self pity and cruelty to one another.
The human body. It is a vessel for your soul to experience this world. The body provides the filters necessary to perceive and interact with this world. There is much more happening and one would be overwhelmed by the amounts of information to process without these filters. To feel and in those feelings are to make each experience real. However, it is temporary, as everything is temporary. We have slowed down time here in order to be able to enjoy the sensations. Time here however, is irrelevant in the grand scheme of things. It is merely to track to organize one's day and to see growth to compare as time passes. However, the actual time folds upon itself as we have already done what we are doing many times over. We have already tried out everything and decided what path we wanted to take in our lives based upon what was available to us. Thus, we do not have more than we can handle. We have all chosen our burdens to bear as it is too much for one individual to hold alone which was done in the past. This is part of the sorting process. Now that we all share in the sins and the pains, no one is made to suffer eternal torment. This life was to allow those who were created into entities of pain or torment through no fault of their own to choose the life that matched the being of who they were as what they were different as time and space and everything developed. Righteousness and Evil are not synonymous to demons or angels as many would like to believe. This is a current misconception as Satan and I conclude who will be right in this experience you have all participated in. So far, I am proving to be right. Also to note, not everything is as you think it is. Many have figured out the true origin of Satan versus the man or human embodiment of or desire of A Satan to project evils onto to call a Religion and set up for personal importance. Q AZHow can you tell a false prophet? Easy. What is their profit? Get it? I know I’m funny. Also wanted to keep it easy. If they are making a profit on anything they are a false prophet. Any true prophet, and I have none so far, all live equally and the same as anyone else. No money is taken for personal gain. Nothing is for personal gain. There is no 888 Angel code for money. Money is Man-Made. Man traded Mother for Money. Hence, Mothers have been lost in the homes and no one is raising the children. Thus, there are so many children in adult bodies with no mothers in the home and women being made to feel guilty if they do not achieve the same as a man. Remember the phrase it takes a village? Well, the broken family system is a real sad loss here in man made world pushing everyone to be individual and self sufficient. Also so many with wanting attention and pursuing personal endeavors for personal gain and not helping anyone else in a real way. The journey is personal. Of course, you want to share what you experienced with others, but what worked for you will not work for them, stop trying to sell it. Stop trying to make people follow you for you to teach your divine wisdom you remembered. It isn’t about You. You don’t even have the full story, you have your story. And, yes you can be very close to me, very similar to me, in my image, but you can never BE me. Doesn’t work like that. Reflection. So when jealousy arises when you think I am who you think I am. That is part of your test and your journey. You wrestle with that feeling and atone and repent for that which has been done and that which still lingers now. Oh there is a place for everyone and I am quite tired of trying to warn people. Clearly you can lead a horse to water, but you cannot make it drink.
Why do you not want it to be me so badly? Because I proved my love? You still think I am better than you or do I think I’m always right. No I do not think I am always right, I just know when I am right and I stand by it. There is a difference. You constantly overgeneralize. I gave up all the magic and thunder to live as a simple human and am still kind and loving? I still found my way back. Because you can no longer say I do not understand because I always get what I want? No. You do not understand. I never get what I want, because I make everything about you and still nothing was ever good enough. So, now...it in on you to save yourself and each other. In my image, by my example. Selflessness. Love. Compassion. Give to receive. Take only what you need and give the rest away. I find out so stop lying to yourself and everyone, you aren’t fooling anyone anyway. How do I know? By watching what you do. We have these same conversations over and over, the same argument over and over again. So many different ways, so many different times, through so many different people, so many different versions. Save you. Save Me. Say it for always.
Anyhow, Jesus challenges the Jewish priests who were taking collection money for personal use and adding personal baths to their residents at a time where the people only had a community bath where women and persons with disabilities were not allowed to bathe. And yet churches still do this after Jesus was crucified saying that, that was wrong. I am appalled. The Vatican is the biggest disappointment I have ever seen. It is truly the house of Satan as only Evil hides secrets. “THE TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE.” A church cannot be a “House of God” and house no people who need housing. A roof can be offered to anyone and yet there are so many rules to prevent people from helping each other. Power and control. Abuse of both. Greed. It is out of hand and needs to be changed. Too many are afraid and the complacency of good people is too much. Why do you do this to yourselves? To each their own I suppose.
I will only leave here my words and my advice. As always, it is on you to find me. I’m right here. Waiting. Right here waiting for you. Helping those of you who want it when they cross my path. The purpose of this was to weigh your soul to determine where you will go into the next life as the system is balanced out in a final version so to speak. Permanent.
Fear not. You will be where your heart truly desires. But actions always speak louder than words. But man made money has no value, nor does any metals, jewels, and so on, so the collection of it in this life has no bearing on the next. Those are all made of the same stardust as you and I. And in the end of 3D it will all be diamonds anyways. Diamond is forever. There is no going back. So what are you hoarding? You cannot keep it. Who could you be helping for goodness sake? Don’t want to still. That is okay. Think I am just crazy. That is okay too. It is all part of the test...err..assessment. Do your best.
What is in your heart?
I need a home.
Stay tuned as more of my story unfolds. I give all the answers but you must do the work. I already did that hard part setting it all up. All you have to do is breathe and live. Time is the only real currency you have. What will you pay your attention to before this life runs out?

2023.05.30 20:18 KingMobs1138 POLL: iOS notifications vs built-in for Pomodoro timer...

I'd love to see how many of us actually wanted this feature, because it seems like most users on Reddit and elsewhere did not.
Since TickTick's customer support is practically nonexistent now, it seems like they're just aping competitors' features without actually listening to their user base, conducting user testing, etc.
In fairness, taking away what users like and putting in shit no one asked for is the M.O. of most product designers today. Reminds me of that line in the Talmud: “No one commits a sin unless the wind of idiocy enters into him.”
Wind gets around.
I'm probably going back to Todoist and Sessions (great pomodoro), but before I do, I humbly ask:
What notification type do you prefer in TickTick?

2023.05.30 20:16 mrstubali Dealing with omnipotence

I've got a topic and I'm sorry if this is confusing or badly worded, so I'll do my best to be concise. Does anybody have ideas or rebuttals regarding omnipotence? This is my take, to me it seems like anything that can become an object has limits and relies on important physical rules. Some examples are like mass and energy, and how much energy would be needed to make something like a ghost to exist. It's quite difficult. This includes anybody's perception of God. It's so strange that God acts like a person, like propping a weapon on a cloud. What's the point, wouldn't the practical thing be to make the weapon appear when it's needed? This is what I mean when something becomes an object. So far I haven't really discovered belief systems that take things like mass and energy into consideration. This seems odd, and also bizarre when people start avenging when God is involved. Mostly people treat religion like a club, and God just becomes another plaything that gets leveraged. It's awful. Then people die, and some appointed whoever gets to speak on the behalf of that person in some ceremony and we go back to our daily life. Am I alone in thinking that something's wrong?
Yet, my belief in the omnipotence of God keeps me believing, even though there doesn't seem to be any belief systems that address omnipotence. I acknowledge God exists, because at some point omnipotence could emerge, even if it's from nothing. I mean this isn't the same type of omnipotence that happens in religious stories like burning skies or whatever. It's just the ability for a process to happen without any input whatsoever, so that's what I see as omnipotence. Makes sense, because God's capable of doing that. Though if stuff like that happened in our world, it would just break the material world that we're living. Because how the physical world came to be, basic particles got very hot and get excited into creating the Big Bang, because what we have here right now. And we rely on that! We're the result of all of that, correct me if those ideas are different now. Since time, as we're using it now, relies on what we have now, why would God need to rely on any of this? This is why prophecies, portents, divination, and all those other things that also get leveraged don't make any sense if God's omnipotence is considered. Yeah and all those people who rely on those portents sneer about "free lunches" yet their sole motivation for leverage is to get the free lunch. I could go on and on about this. Like with Cain and Abel, even in this story, it seems like God here doesn't like choosing a winner over the other. And really can we blame anybody? That's the thing, you see the struggle that people have trying to ascertain the problems of living in our physical world that just has physical rules. Why are people trying to conflate and adapt God to that? Makes no sense, and there's no belief to be found there anyway. Though there's belief to be found in God who is omnipotent and isn't constrained by these physical laws, at least for me. So, what about that topic, and it's okay if you call me crazy, that's fine. I'll do my best to respond though days are busy now it's almost summer.

2023.05.30 20:11 Agile_Counter9403 Heart anxiety/ cardiophobia

Hi, I just wanted to write this because I was struggling badly with heart anxiety/cardiophobia. At the time it felt like there would never be a way out and I was going to die of a cardiac episode very soon.
I want to reassure the people struggling with this specific type of anxiety and show that there is light at the end of the tunnel. For me it all started last year after I experienced left arm numbness (due to panic attack but didn’t know at the time) and I called an ambulance because I was convinced that was it, I was dying. This was the start of a vicious cycle for me, from that day onwards I started getting daily palpitations & chest pain. I had visited the hospital emergency department(a&e) multiple times and even daily at one point. They did multiple tests and reassured me I was okay. It started to make me feel as though I was crying out for help no one was listening and I WAS going to die. They referred me to cardiology where they did an Echo& 48 hour holter. Both resulted came back remarkable NAD detected.
Of course this wasn’t enough for me, because I KNEW I was going to die and my heart wasn’t healthy (so I thought). It got to the point where I’d end up in the resuscitation part of the hospital because I’d panic so bad my heart went to 190bpm which was again confirmed as anxiety. I wasn’t living, I was solely waking up to worry I was going to die that day, everyday.
Early this year it got to the point I realised physically and mentally I cannot do it anymore. Checking my pulse everyday and worrying I’ll go into cardiac arrest suddenly wasn’t living at all. I read somewhere that doing things that make you anxious over and over makes you feel more comfortable and it becomes easier. So I started looking after myself more & trying to be more active… I’m not 100% heart anxiety free but I’m slowly getting there. Worrying 24/7 won’t prevent something happening to you, it’ll just ruin the life and happiness you currently have. That was a hard thing for me to learn and get over but it’s true. In order for me to be able to do things without worrying every second I had to realise this isn’t healthy and it won’t prevent a cardiac event if anything the lifestyle it caused would’ve probably made it more likely.
Do the things that scare you or create your anxiety, it’ll make you so happy to be able to say ‘I beat that and chose freedom’.
This doesn’t go to say if you are worried don’t get checked out, it’s better to be safe. But if you’re like me & you’ve had the tests and reassurance then this is probably the post for you.
If anyone is struggling with this I’m more then happy to chat:)

2023.05.30 20:10 Itchy_Lawfulness_821 It’s just too complicated and convoluted

I’ve been playing every day but two for five years. There are things that I like and things I don’t, but overall I keep playing. I make an occasional $20 purchase or $2 if I think it’s a good value. What makes me crazy is I can’t figure out one event to the next I never know what to hoard. I burned my gold stockpile a few months ago. I never saw the special orbs listed in gwenpool event. I was 15 shards short on getting IF so couldn’t do invaders event. I think I was two raids short of getting the shards to unlock gwenpool.
There are three different events simultaneously iso-8 energy over here, crucible attacks over there that then feed into the monthly event. Each starts and ends at a different time and overlaps with another this week it’s raids with guardians. but there is a cap on raids next week it’s war with the new flavor of the month that you can’t unlock without buying. Followed by crucible with a non farmable character at 4 stars. Don’t forget to check in on the webstore where a different event is starting with a different clock reset. I shouldn’t have to bounce to 3 different milestone lists and the website to figure out what I need to do next. I want to spend my time in the game playing the game. It’s not that I am irritated about free to play vs low spenders vs whales. It’s more that I get irritated that I could have gotten X,Y or Z milestone but I missed the cutoff today because I had to work through my normal lunch hour.
When folks on here are complaining about the game, most of the criticism is valid, and it boils down to does anyone at the COMPANY have a normal account and just try to play it regularly. And try to work or go on vacation or have a life outside the game and without unlimited resources.
Some of the changes are positive.. I don’t understand the new war format because the info in game or blog isn’t sufficient and I don’t want to watch a 20 minute video, I use that 20 minutes for raids or war. I like the 10 attacks at start of war(should have always been that way), because that gives us an entire day to attack whenever we have time. But a spend 240 iso-8 energy button on a node isn’t an improvement we needed. But every event there seems to be a problem and that’s because you make them too damn complicated that your coders can’t figure them out. KISS PRINCIPAL!
I can’t event get started about recruiting from retirements due to everyone’s frustration. I’m losing a player every 3 weeks and getting quality replacements is practically impossible. And I just wasted 10 minutes I should have been playing.

With the program start-up finished, the green text disappears, as the black screen changes to a bright red. Along with it comes a bunch of different signals and analytics, such as a zoom-in function, time display, wi-fi connection, etc. Then, the red screen is replaced by a full-color POV of the area.
It’s a lab room colored a green tint, with different kinds of pipes, turbines, and lights. Plus, there’s a metal table littered with different machine parts and tools, alongside blueprints, and there’s a large computer screen nearby with a keyboard and a big chair with comfy red cushions.
However, much of this is being blocked by the face of a round, middle-aged man with a long, bushy mustache, round blue glasses, a bald head, and a big grin. He then speaks, showing a bit of excitement in his voice.
???: “Ah…online at last!”
Changing perspective, it’s shown just what this mustached man was staring at. A small blue robot bearing resemblance to a hedgehog, with it’s spiky nose and ears, alongside it’s fins. It also has a yellow circular depression in it’s chest, and it’s silver limbs are quite thin, connecting to clawed hands and red shoes with white stripes.
The robotic hedgehog looks around the lab with it’s piercing red eyes, but is unable to move it’s head or body due to the cables connected to them. Though, the machine certainly tries to, which the mustached man is amused by.
???: “Eager to start moving, are you? Guess that shouldn’t be surprising, considering who you were based off of.”
???: “No matter. Who am I to deny taking a tour around my lab?”
Moving towards the computer, the mustached man types quickly on the keyboard, and after a few seconds, the cables come off. The robotic hedgehog is caught off-guard by this and ends up falling to the ground. But it manages to get back up to it’s feet, and starts walking around the lab, getting a good look at it’s surroundings.
As he observes the blue machine, the mustached man continues to grin. He’s pleased to see his most advanced creation yet walk around with complete autonomy. Most of his machines are quite one-track minded. And after a couple of seconds, the robotic hedgehog walks up to it’s creator, speaking in a robotic voice.
???: “Where…am I?”
???: “You are in my personal lab. This is where I created you.”
???: “Created…me?”
???: “Yes. I am your brilliant creator and master! Doctor Ivo Robotnik!”
Robotnik: “I built both your body and programming with my own two hands! And you will obey only me!”
???: “Master…”
The robot seems to process Robotnik’s words, while the round doctor patiently waits on it. Then, the machine asks something again.
???: “...What…am I?”
Robotnik: “You are Metal Sonic. My most advanced creation.”
Robotnik: “A combat robot, modeled after my greatest foe yet, Sonic The Hedgehog.”
Robotnik: “Not only were you made to copy that rodent’s abilities and traits, but also to surpass and kill him by any means necessary.”
Robotnik: “However, your main priority should be to protect me, and accomplish any and all tasks I demand of you.”
Robotnik: “Do you understand?”
Metal Sonic: “...”
Metal Sonic stays silent as it processes Robotnik’s information, now recognizing it’s objectives. Serve Dr. Robotnik, and kill Sonic. Then, it nods it’s head, which pleases the doctor.
Robotnik: “Good. Now, let me show you around, and explain what’s going on currently.”
Robotnik turns around and opens the door, walking out with Metal Sonic. The two go throughout the factory, which is filled with built-in turbines, small plaques of the doctor’s face, gigantic machines, buzz saws, and much more. There’s also a bunch of different Badniks performing many kinds of tasks.
As the doctor and his creation walk around, the latter scans it’s surroundings while the former continues to speak.
Robotnik: “We’re currently on Little Planet. A small planetoid that floats above Earth every November.”
Robotnik: “And on this planet, there lies the secret to controlling all of time itself…the Time Stones!”
Pulling out a red gemstone from his pocket, Robotnik shows it to Metal Sonic, who seems interested in it.
Robotnik: “With just one of these fancy gemstones, I can change many regions of this world to my liking!”
Robotnik: “But with all seven in my possession, I can take over Earth and create Robotnikland! The ultimate city and theme-park, where I’ll rule it all!”
Robotnik: “However, despite the takeover of this floating rock going smoothly, the rest of the Time Stones have eluded me and my forces.”
Robotnik: “Plus, that irritating hedgehog has ruined my plans once before, and likely will try to do so again.”
Robotnik: “Hence, why I made YOU, Metal.”
Stopping in place for a moment, Robotnik points a finger at Metal Sonic, who just stares up at it’s creator.
Robotnik: “While it would have taken at least a full year for me to complete and perfect you, I had the power of the Time Stone, which gave me more than enough time!”
Robotnik: “But don’t think you’re ready yet! You’ll have to undergo many tests if you want to prove useful to my cause!”
Robotnik: “Think you’re up for the task?”
Metal Sonic: “...”
Metal Sonic: “...Yes, Master Robotnik.”
Robotnik: “Atta boy!”
With a pleased grin on his face, Robotnik pats Metal Sonic’s head a bit, before the two move on. Already, the doctor is eager to see his most advanced creation show what it’s made of. As for the robotic hedgehog, it simply wishes to serve it’s master, as that is it’s main objective. However…it DOES want to accomplish what it was made for…
\A few hours later. Metallic Madness (Present).\**
Metal Sonic stands in a contained mechanical room with a yellow light, and a large glass window, where Robotnik is operating keyboard controls on the other side. As he does this, he speaks to his creation via a comm system, explaining what they’re doing.
Robotnik: “This is your first test, Metal Sonic. One about speed and agility.”
Robotnik: “Your organic counterpart is the Fastest Thing Alive. Or at least, so he claims.”
Robotnik: “But regardless, if you’re going to surpass him, you need to go faster than him.”
Metal Sonic: “What is his recorded top speed?”
Robotnik: “From what I gathered during our last three encounters, about 100 to 200 miles per hour. Though, he COULD be holding back in some manner.”
Robotnik: “Hence, we can’t just settle at the minimum. We have to go as far as we can!”
Metal Sonic: “What if I am unable to sustain such speed?”
Robotnik: “I built you to endure it. And I can always fix you up afterwards.”
Robotnik: “But don’t think you can fail me…or there WILL be consequences…”
Metal Sonic: “Understood.”
Robotnik: “Good. Now, to explain the test.”
As Robotnik types on the keyboard, the left wall in the room Metal Sonic’s in goes down to reveal a bunch of large fans. The doctor then speaks.
Robotnik: “These fans will push you back towards the wall behind you. But there is a switch connected to them that can turn them off.”
Robotnik: “You have to go fast enough to resist the push of these fans in order to reach that switch.”
Robotnik: “If not, you’ll be slammed into the wall, and have to restart.”
Robotnik: “Are you ready?”
Metal Sonic: “Yes.”
Metal Sonic prepares itself for the fans, as Robotnik turns them on. Immediately, the fans pick up a lot of speed, and start to push the robotic hedgehog towards the wall. Despite Metal’s best efforts to resist the wind, it ends up being slammed into the wall, failing it’s first attempt. Robotnik also lets out a sigh, knowing this is likely gonna take a while.
So, as the fans stop, Metal falls to the ground and gets back up, ready to do it again. Hence, the test starts again. And again. And again. Each time, the robotic hedgehog does better and better, which Robotnik finds interesting. His creation is adapting to the situation little by little. Soon enough, Metal Sonic manages to speed up towards the switch and turn off the fans, passing it’s first test.
Robotnik: “Well done, Metal! It only took you 30 tries!”
Metal Sonic: “Do we move on to the next test?”
Robotnik: “Indeed! But you’ll have to go through this one many more times in order to perfect your speed!”
Metal Sonic: “I will succeed as many times as I need do.”
Robotnik: “That’s the spirit! I wish my other Badniks had some of that drive!”
\The next day. Metallic Madness (Bad Future).\**
Robotnik and Metal Sonic stand among a whole bunch of Badniks in Metallic Madness, with the doctor in his Egg Mobile. However, the factory looks to be in a great state of decay, and everything has a rusted brownish-green hue to it. Many of the mechanisms also appear to barely function, as if they’re running on fumes.
Right now, Robotnik and his machines are getting ready for the Metal Sonic’s next test.
Robotnik: “Alright, Metal Sonic! This will be a test of your programmed objectives!”
Robotnik: “I will be flying over to the kitchen over there to grab a snack, and you have to protect me as I do so!”
Metal Sonic: “What about my other objective?”
Robotnik: “We’ll prepare for Sonic another time! Right now, we’ll just test how you do against basic threats to my health!”
Robotnik: “Also…”
Staring at his different Badniks, Robotnik puts on an intimidating glare as he speaks in a demanding tone.
Robotnik: “While your mission is to attack me, I won’t hesitate to tear apart any of you who manage to actually hurt me!”
Robotnik: “ESPECIALLY if Metal isn’t able to pick up your slack!”
Many of the Badniks are a little scared of their creator’s words, but understand what’s being asked of them. And after a few more minutes of preparation, the test begins. Though, due to not wanting to accidentally hurt their creator, and also being intimidated by Metal Sonic, many of them are very hesitant on attacking.
However, a couple of them do make an attempt, which leads to Metal Sonic quickly destroying them without a second thought. While Robotnik is pleased that his robotic hedgehog is fulfilling his objective, he’s annoyed that his other robots aren’t making the test a true challenge. So, after arriving at the kitchen and getting a ham sandwich, the doctor comments on it, in-between his chewing.
Robotnik: “Well…you did a good job, Metal Sonic.”
Robotnik: “However, for the rest of you nincombots, I’m angry that a lot of you didn’t bother to make the test tough enough!”
Robotnik: “Sure, I appreciate not wanting to harm me, but you still need to do your job!”
Robotnik: “Now, let’s try this again!”
Metal Sonic: “Are we heading somewhere else?”
As Metal Sonic asks this question, Robotnik manages to quickly finish his sandwich in only a few bites. And after a big burp, the round doctor answers.
Robotnik: “Actually, I think I could use a nice can of Chaos Cola. Primal Venom specifically.”
Metal Sonic: “But you’re already at the kitchen doorway?”
Robotnik: “Then we’ll go back to where we started!”
Annoyed, Robotnik gets into his Egg Mobile and flies back to the starting spot, with Metal Sonic and the remaining Badniks following. Then, they do the test all over again. This time, more of the Badniks actually try to attack the doctor, only to get obliterated by the robotic hedgehog easily.
Once Robotnik reaches the kitchen again and gets his Chaos Cola, he comments on the test and his robots, in-between taking sips of the carbonated drink.
Robotnik: “See? That was a MUCH better challenge!”
Robotnik: “And as expected, you passed with flying colors, Metal!”
Metal Sonic: “Good. Do we move on to the next test?”
Robotnik: “Eh. That’ll take some time to prepare, so we can leave it be for now.”
Metal Sonic: “What if Sonic comes here tomorrow? What if I’m not prepared enough?”
Robotnik: “Relax! With the Time Stone in our possession, we have plenty of time before that happens!”
Metal Sonic: “But I must complete my objective of killing him.”
Robotnik: “And you will! Just be patient, and you’ll get your chance soon enough!”
Robotnik: “Though, if you want to be ready for him so badly, you could always take care of the rest of these Badniks!”
Metal Sonic: “...”
Staring at the remaining Badniks, all of which are looking scared with this predicament, Metal Sonic bares it’s clawed hands and begins to tear into them. They’re all reduced to scrap, with Robotnik just standing there and drinking his Chaos Cola. He’s delighted to see just how capable and relentless his advanced creation is.
Though, he finds Metal’s insistence of fulfilling his Sonic directive slightly annoying. But at the same time, Robotnik isn’t too bothered with it. If anything, the doctor is pleased to know his robotic hedgehog is eager to tear it’s organic counterpart to shreds.
\The next day. Metallic Madness (Present).\**
Robotnik and Metal Sonic stand in front of the computer in the lab, with the screen displaying some information. This is yet another test by the round doctor, and explains it to his advanced creation.
Robotnik: “This time, you won’t be tested in terms of combat ability, Metal Sonic.”
Robotnik: “Instead, your intelligence and capacity for thought will be tested. To see if you can use your abilities smartly when in a tough situation.”
Robotnik: “On this computer, there are 300 questions for you to answer to the best of your ability. Along with the information to properly understand them.”
Robotnik: “You must correctly answer all of them if you want to pass this test.”
Metal Sonic: “...How will this help me against Sonic?”
Robotnik: “I already told you! There are some scenarios you can’t brute force your way through!”
Robotnik: “Hence, you must learn how to apply your strengths to any given situation where you aren’t the top dog!”
Metal Sonic: “I’m a robot modeled after a hedgehog.”
Robotnik: “It’s a figure of speech! The point here is you need to learn how to think things through!”
Robotnik: “Now, enough of this! Get to work!”
Metal Sonic: “...Yes, master.”
With that exchange finished, Metal Sonic approaches the keyboard, and starts typing away as it answers the many questions. Robotnik walks up to his lab table and sits down in his cushion chair, silently watching the robotic hedgehog with intrigue. He’s interested to see just how intelligent his most advanced creation could be.
And after 30 minutes, Metal Sonic finishes, and the screen shows how many questions it got right. 109. Robotnik lets out a sigh, as he waits for the robotic hedgehog to try again. But unexpectedly, Metal instead slams it’s fist onto the keyboard, leaving a noticeable cracked hole. This surprises and frustrates the doctor, leading to him questioning the robot.
Robotnik: “Why’d you do that!? You just had to do better with your next attempt!”
Metal Sonic: “This is a waste of time.”
Metal Sonic: “YOU are wasting my time.”
Robotnik: “Excuse me!?”
Walking up to it’s creator, Metal Sonic explains what it’s saying.
Metal Sonic: “You made me for the sole purpose of destroying Sonic The Hedgehog.”
Metal Sonic: “Yet, you keep making me do these pointless tasks.”
Robotnik: “Like I’ve said many times before, it’s to test your capabilities! To make sure you DO have what it takes to defeat that rodent!”
Metal Sonic: “I have no need for testing. You programmed me to be intelligent.”
Metal Sonic: “You made me durable. You made me quick.”
Metal Sonic: “You already perfected me before I was running.”
Metal Sonic: “So why do you make your most advanced creation waste it’s talents like this?”
While Robotnik is angry that Metal Sonic is talking back to him, he somewhat understands why it’s acting like this, and he even agrees with some of what it’s saying. This machine WAS made to specifically counter Sonic, and be much more intelligent, strong, and faster than him. However, he’s still standing his ground in terms of testing.
So, thinking of a way to get Metal Sonic to cooperate at least a little bit, Robotnik decides to speak about something more…personal.
Robotnik: “...Alright. Perhaps it’s best I tell you something?”
Metal Sonic: “I do not wish to waste anymore time talking.”
Robotnik: “Metal…stand here and LISTEN. That is an ORDER.”
Metal Sonic: “...”
Silently, Metal Sonic does as asked, while Robotnik continues to talk, letting go of some of his frustration.
Robotnik: “See…when I was a young boy, I wanted to prove myself to my superiors as well.”
Robotnik: “In particular, there was this science fair coming up, and I wanted to win.”
Robotnik: “This is when I came up with the idea of a robot powered by small animals. Something that hasn’t been done before or since.”
Robotnik: “When I figured out how to do it, I was ecstatic to show it off. I thought I’d get so much praise and admiration!”
Robotnik: “However, I didn’t take my time with it. I ignored important parts of the process, such as the programming and machine design.”
Robotnik: “When the science fair finally came, and I got a chance to show it off…”
Robotnik: “...It exploded in my face.”
As Robotnik continues, his tone becomes much more bitter and irritated.
Robotnik: “They all laughed at me…they thought I was a fool…”
Robotnik: “It was one of the worst moments in my life.” Robotnik: “But then…my grandfather Gerald talked to me about it.”
Robotnik’s tone becomes a little more relaxed when he talks about his grandfather.
Robotnik: “How, while a good idea, I ended up rushing the process. And that if I had taken my time with it, I wouldn’t have had any problems.”
Robotnik: “As a scientist himself, he knew that nothing good comes out of rushing a project.”
Robotnik: “So, he asked me to try making an animal-powered robot again. This time, without a deadline.”
Robotnik: “And once I completed it…it worked perfectly.”
Robotnik: “And as a reward for my patience…Gerald and I went to an amusement park.”
Robotnik: “It was the most fun I had in my life…”
As Robotnik thinks about this memory, he has a genuinely happy smile on his face. But that breaks when Metal Sonic speaks again.
Metal Sonic: “What is the point of this story?”
Robotnik: “...The point is that rushing the process of something you’re working on only brings about a bunch of problems.”
Robotnik: “Hence, why I need to test you, Metal Sonic.”
Robotnik: “You are my greatest creation, and I want to make you the best combat machine you can be.”
Robotnik: “That way, you can not only defeat Sonic without any trouble…but also serve as my second-in-command.”
Robotnik: “But I need you to cooperate in order to do so.”
Robotnik: “When that hedgehog arrives here on Little Planet, you’ll get your chance to fight him. You just have to be patient.”
Robotnik: “Are we clear?”
Metal Sonic: “...”
Metal Sonic: “...Very well…I apologize for my behavior.”
Robotnik: “Just don’t do it again. Now, you have a test to take care of!”
Metal Sonic nods, and goes back to the computer to try the test again, while Robotnik watches at his lab table. He didn’t think he’d have to talk about his past in order to convince one of his machines to do what he says. But then again…this machine is much more advanced than anything else he’s made.
Sure, it may not be a living person, but Metal Sonic certainly has some noticeable traits. It wants to do what it was made for: Kill Sonic The Hedgehog. And it’s determined to do so. Perhaps with time, it could evolve into a person of it’s own? Though, Robotnik has no idea if that’ll ever happen.
But at the same time, it would be quite interesting to witness. And it means the doctor basically created an entirely new lifeform, making him an even bigger genius than he was already.
\A week later. Metallic Madness (Bad Future).\**
Many days have passed since Metal Sonic has gone through it’s tests in order to build up it’s speed, combat abilities, and intelligence. Since then, Robotnik has allowed his advanced creation to go around Little Planet and help in it’s mechanization, along with the search for the other 6 Time Stones.
As the doctor expected, the robotic hedgehog is doing a great job fulfilling it’s objectives, and has even managed to find the blue Time Stone. So, the Robotnik Empire now has 2 out of 7. However, at the moment, Sonic The Hedgehog hasn’t shown up, which seems to be bugging Metal Sonic more and more as the days go on.
Right now, the robotic hedgehog is in a small, mechanical room with red lights and a ton of different weapons coming out from the walls. Metal Sonic is practicing in order to be ready for it’s organic counterpart, and appears to barely have a scratch on it. In a few seconds, it manages to destroy all the weapons, and finish it’s practice.
Afterwards, it comes out of the room, and walks around Metallic Madness, observing it’s surroundings and fellow Badniks. And soon enough, Metal Sonic notices Robotnik in his Egg Mobile flying around. When the two notice each other, the round doctor decides to strike up a bit of conversation.
Robotnik: “Heheheh! I’m guessing training went well, Metal?”
Metal Sonic: “Yes. It’s no longer a challenge anymore.”
Robotnik: “I see! I’ll have to make some upgrades later!”
Robotnik: “And how goes the search for the Time Stones?”
Metal Sonic: “The Badniks and I have found more Special Zone rings appearing around Wacky Workbench and Quartz Quadrant.”
Metal Sonic: “At the moment, I was set on going into one of them.”
Robotnik: “Do be careful. The Special Zone is a strange dimension.”
Metal Sonic: “Whatever’s inside, I can handle it.”
Metal Sonic: “Though, I haven’t found any traces of Sonic The Hedgehog…”
Metal Sonic’s hands clench, while Robotnik looks a bit uncomfortable and irritated.
Robotnik: “Hmm…admittedly, I thought he’d show up by now.”
Robotnik: “Either the power of the Time Stones has something to do with it, or the hedgehog hasn’t taken notice of us yet.”
Metal Sonic: “Should we go down to Earth and find him?”
Robotnik: “Tempting, but I’d rather do that when I get all the Time Stones.”
Robotnik: “That way, there’s absolutely NO chance of victory for him!”
Metal Sonic: “There is no need for those gemstones. I can take care of him myself.”
Robotnik: “Oh, I have no doubt about that! It’s just better to be prepared!”
Just after Robotnik says this, a sudden beeping noise comes from his Egg Mobile’s radar. This leads to him looking down and seeing what’s up, with Metal Sonic coming up to see for itself. That’s when the two are surprised to see what it is…someone has arrived on Little Planet in the Palmtree Panic region…which only means one thing…
Sonic The Hedgehog is here…

2023.05.30 20:06 JanVanRiebeek12 How a trip to Nigeria 🇳🇬 almost broke up my marriage!

So it all started when I went away for work. I work for a well known retail company (won’t mention it’s name). And as we were looking at branching into Africa I along with many others from the company went on a business trip to Lagos, Nigeria. I was somewhat excited, but really it was business as normal. Did not plan on doing anything fun. I was not considering this a holiday. I was actually missing my husband dearly. So on one of the last nights, the company of Nigerian investors who had essentially been our hosts, invited us to this restaurant/bar, one of the fanciest in Lagos. Initially I actually said I wasn’t going as I was just ready to come home, so sleep was seeming like a nice idea. My one co-worker whom I’m very friendly with convinced me to come. And that night is when I met… him.
This guy was working for the before mentioned investment company. We got to speaking. Well immediately this tall, strong, muscular, young and successful man, with his dark chocolate skin, got my heart racing slightly. I’ve had many sexual fantasies about other men since being with my husband. But never acting on it. Tonight though I was to be put through my biggest test of faith yet. And I’m pleased to say, I came out successful. So, back to the night. As drinks flowed the conversation continued to flow. I had never been with a black man before. I caught myself daydreaming about if the stereotype is true. I slowly unconsciously drifted my eyes towards the area below the buckle of his belt. Noticing even through his pants how an outline of what had to have been one very thick and long black body part. A smile flashed across my face before I quickly shot back to reality. My Nigerian Prince had noticed for when I looked at his face a large smile had formed on his face. His teeth so white against that dark African face. I turned away in embarrassment. He quickly grabbed my hand. His large powerful hand swallowing my petite white hand whole. He said in his broken English that I must not worry and laughed. It occurred to me then that this man was everything my husband was not. Was this an opportunity simply too good not to pass up?
I’ll skip to the end of the night. As he was walking me outside he leant in for a kiss his big lips were inviting but I stayed true to my husband. Pushing him away, I had passed the first test. He apologised and after dropping me off my morals lapsed. Maybe it was the alcohol, but I invited him in. He gave me a devilish smile and I returned one of my own. When the door of my room had closed, it all happened so fast. He practically ripped my clothes off, with such power and strength like that of a gorila. A mountain Silver Back Gorilla. And before I knew it my hands were wrapped around his manhood. My thoughts were beyond true, he was so massive that when I first grabbed onto it I thought perhaps a ginormous African python has gotten into the room. I let out a gasp. It was so black like nothing I had ever seen before. The night sky not even coming close.
I’ll skip what happened next. But just know that when it came to the part of the the night when sex was the next logical step. I stopped him with all my force. I would not cheat on my husband and have sex with this man. My values were simply too strong. I past the second and final test. From there we did not have sex. And I remained a faithful wife. As always. My love for my amazing husband prevailing. Thank God.
We did come to an agreement that he could put it in my … other hole. But when he was done with that we stopped. Sex was not on the menu for this poor guy. Afterwards he got dressed and left the room quickly.
Will this happen every time I come to Africa? It was really exciting but a bit much. I came for business but ended up having a strange encounter with an Nigerian Warrior Prince with a mighty tree drunk between his legs.
Sorry Kev (my husband) if you’re reading this. Love you!

2023.05.30 20:06 Agile_Counter9403 Heart anxiety/ cardiophobia

Hi, I just wanted to write this because I was struggling badly with heart anxiety/cardiophobia. At the time it felt like there would never be a way out and I was going to die of a cardiac episode very soon.
I want to reassure the people struggling with this specific type of anxiety and show that there is light at the end of the tunnel. For me it all started last year after I experienced left arm numbness (due to panic attack but didn’t know at the time) and I called an ambulance because I was convinced that was it, I was dying. This was the start of a vicious cycle for me, from that day onwards I started getting daily palpitations & chest pain. I had visited the hospital emergency department(a&e) multiple times and even daily at one point. They did multiple tests and reassured me I was okay. It started to make me feel as though I was crying out for help no one was listening and I WAS going to die. They referred me to cardiology where they did an Echo& 48 hour holter. Both resulted came back remarkable NAD detected.
Of course this wasn’t enough for me, because I KNEW I was going to die and my heart wasn’t healthy (so I thought). It got to the point where I’d end up in the resuscitation part of the hospital because I’d panic so bad my heart went to 190bpm which was again confirmed as anxiety. I wasn’t living, I was solely waking up to worry I was going to die that day, everyday.
Early this year it got to the point I realised physically and mentally I cannot do it anymore. Checking my pulse everyday and worrying I’ll go into cardiac arrest suddenly wasn’t living at all. I read somewhere that doing things that make you anxious over and over makes you feel more comfortable and it becomes easier. So I started looking after myself more & trying to be more active… I’m not 100% heart anxiety free but I’m slowly getting there. Worrying 24/7 won’t prevent something happening to you, it’ll just ruin the life and happiness you currently have. That was a hard thing for me to learn and get over but it’s true. In order for me to be able to do things without worrying every second I had to realise this isn’t healthy and it won’t prevent a cardiac event if anything the lifestyle it caused would’ve probably made it more likely.
Do the things that scare you or create your anxiety, it’ll make you so happy to be able to say ‘I beat that and chose freedom’.
This doesn’t go to say if you are worried don’t get checked out, it’s better to be safe. But if you’re like me & you’ve had the tests and reassurance then this is probably the post for you.
If anyone is struggling with this I’m more then happy to chat:)
