2023.05.31 02:00 BlueArchiveMod Daily Questions Megathread May 31, 2023

Please use this thread to ask any questions you have about the game. Please search though the comments section as your question may have been answered already or through the search bar.

General Resources

REMINDER: Bind your account!

Please remember to bind your accounts and take note of your UID, member code, server location, and any information related to your account (e.g. amount spent, student roster, etc). If anything happens to your account (e.g. losing access, unauthorized access), you will need to provide as much info as you can to Nexon's customer support email. Guest accounts that are unbound will be extremely difficult to recover, perhaps impossible.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

[01] When does the server reset?
For global, dailies reset at 19:00 UTC and weeklies reset on Sunday.
[02] Should I re-roll this account?
This will depend on your priorities with PvE, PvP, or both, but you can generally see the “ideal” units as Iori, Hibiki, and Tsubaki for most content, while Shun and Haruna are great for PvP.
[03] Who should I spend my elephs on? Who should I mystic unlock?
At the start, prioritize spending your blank elephs on getting Serina to 2-star for the increased healing stat, Tsubaki to 3-star for the extra tankiness when she is reloading. It is generally advised not to spend your elephs on increasing characters to 4-star and 5-star ratings, since there is only a stat increase and the amount of elephs needed is quite high.
[04] What do my support students’ stats do?
Aside from increasing the stats of their own skills, support students will provide additional stat boosts to your striker team. The specific increase(s) can be viewed by clicking on “Support” on the right side of the team formation screen.
[05] What should I buy in the shop?
[06] What does the “leader” position do?
This is purely cosmetic, as it changes which student’s chibi shows up on the map.
[07] What benefits are there to joining a club?
  1. Students assigned to assist with TA cannot also be selected to assist with JFD.
  2. 20 credits are rewarded every minute by setting assistants.
  3. The specific unit that is borrowed can be only used once a day.
  4. There's a fee of 40,000 credits, when borrowing a assistant student.
  5. The donor receives 50,000 credits instead; even though the fee is 40,000 credits.
  6. The fee can only be received 20 times a day.
[08] How does the pity system work?
You need to pull, at a minimum, 200 times in order to get 200 recruitment points that are redeemed for the character you want. The recruitment point system does not carry over from banner to banner, it is only shared between banners that are concurrently running.
[09] Why can’t I find my friend’s club?
While the servers’ updates are separated from JP and global, the global servers are separated further into smaller divisions. You need to be on the same server as your friend, which you can check from the home screen: top-right menu button > account > version info. The server must be the same.
[10] When is X banner coming? Should I save for X student?
We never know for sure, due to the fact that global servers are on an accelerated schedule compared to JP. Please refer to this guide for some more info.
[11] Should I use Pyroxenes to refill my AP?
If you want to prioritize progression, the first three daily refills are decently valuable, this is because the Pyroxene cost of refilling will increase for every three refills. If you are focused on character collection or future banners, you should be saving your Pyroxenes.
[12] Why can’t I buy X student’s eleph in the shop?
You can only buy elephs of students you own.
[13] What should I craft?
At the start, prioritize crafting cafe furniture until your comfort is maxed out, then students’ gifts, then whichever upgrade materials you need. The crafting system is the only way to get furniture and gifts at the moment.
[14] What is the “Anniversary” in account settings?
This is your birthday, used for characters to wish you happy birthday.
[15] When will the beginner guide missions for Nonomi end?
This is a permanent addition, so feel free to take your time with the tasks.
[16] What is the best place to farm EXP?
You can run any map to farm EXP, as the EXP gain is equal to the amount of AP spent (i.e. 10 AP spent = 10 EXP gained). You should be looking at the stages that drop the equipment upgrade materials that you need.
[17] What is the “Secret Tech Sheet” in the Total Assault shop?
This is used to upgrade a student’s (non-EX) skill to level 10.
[18] Is it worth doing a raid if I can’t pass X difficulty level?
It is always more efficient to clear the highest difficulty you can finish instead of failing/forfeiting a higher difficulty.
[19] Can I claim the Limited Students through exchanging Expert Permits? How often does the Expert Permit shop resets?
You cannot get the limited students via this method. You will still need to pull for them. There's no specific mentioned but it's expected to be monthly.

2023.05.31 02:00 Mahbows Daily Challenge for Non-Cheaters - May 31, 2023

Link to the Daily Challenge
This is a place for Reddit users to submit their scores for the official Daily Challenge (hopefully) without the results being tarnished by cheaters. This should be played as a [2] -- zooming/rotating, moving allowed but external assistance is prohibited. Feel free to leave any walkthroughs in your comments, concealed with a spoiler tag.
A bot will keep a leaderboard for the month. You'll notice two columns related to your scoring performance. The first of these columns is labeled Average and represents your average score among all games throughout the month. The second column is labeled Score and represents either: 1. The average of your top 15 performances, or 2. Your average score divided by 15 (if you have played less than 15 games). The leaderboard is sorted by Score. At the end of the month, the highest Score will be declared the winner, and the leaderboard will reset for the next month.
Why do we keep score this way? There were 3 potential options for scorekeeping:
  1. Straight Average -- flawed because a player who only plays once but scores 25000 would likely win for the month.
  2. Cumulative Total -- flawed because it unfairly favors those who are able to play every and is a severe disadvantage to those who miss even a single day.
  3. Score of top 15 -- the method currently in use, it allows for some leeway for those not able to play daily, but at the same time, it's beneficial to those who are able to play more than 15 times. After 15 plays, each new score will bump out the previous lowest score.
The Daily Challenge resets at midnight UTC, which coincides with the time that this post will go live each day. So essentially, make sure that you're commenting your score with its corresponding post.

2023.05.31 01:59 Zagaroth [No Need For A Core?] - Ch 083: Musings and Ponderings

Cover Art <<Previous Start Next >>
While Moriko was being wined and dined by the princesses, Mordecai mulled over the information he’d learned from ‘eavesdropping’ on her thoughts. And if he understood everything correctly, the spymaster Lady Yuriko was also a princess, albeit from a few generations ago or more. She would have joined the clan in much the same way as Orchid had, and probably only returned as an advisor only after the pain of loss had faded from her closest family being claimed by the passage of time.
Long life amongst the long-lived was easy. Long life mingled with those who were not so long-lived was hard. He suspected the royal family was slightly longer lived than most pure-blooded humans, especially those who showed signs of other bloodlines such as young princess Bridgette, but given what he learned of the Azeria clan almost all of the ‘converted’ princesses could expect to live several centuries, depending on how powerful they grew and thus how many tails they gained.
One of the more interesting things to learn also brought him a bit of relief. While it wasn’t enough to complete the picture of what was going on with Kuiccihan, seeing how they had combined shopping with counter-espionage and probably a little bit of propaganda helped normalize the kingdom a bit from his point of view.
While hardly utopian, the country as a whole had struck him as being almost too serene and egalitarian. This minor bit of political maneuvering showed that a lot of thought and work went into keeping it that way, which fit with what Aia had told him about his daughter having taken some effort in designing the country she helped found. And he was pretty certain that the princesses were sincere, rather than just putting up a good cover. He might be wrong, but it seemed rather unlikely. False paradises tended to be a touch too rigid in weird places, and so far he’d not gotten any signs of that, and there was no attempt to mask it as an actual paradise.
Mordecai was torn about his decision to tuck away so many specific memories. It seemed so logical at the time, it had been so very long and the attack on the village had been thorough, and honestly, it made focusing on the life he had here now easier, but he also regretted not knowing the names of all his children. And though he knew the names of some of his children thanks to the genealogy book, he sort of dreaded the idea of learning the way they would be pronounced now and then having them clash with his memories of them when he did finally retrieve them.
Perhaps not his most rational choice ever, but even if his primary brain was made of crystal instead of the messy goop that made up his avatar’s brain, emotions were not exactly rational. Especially where family was concerned. And the thought of family turned his mind back to the princesses. They were quite the array for a single generation, but given the number of nonhuman and possibly empowered bloodlines supposedly present, this was not as much of a surprise as it might have been. Mordecai really hoped that when the dungeon had greater capacity, either Orchid or one of the other royals would be willing to be thoroughly examined, he wanted to see what was going on for their heritage paths.
All biological life used a physical pattern to carry information from the parents, mingling to create a new pattern. While this was not well known outside of people who had reason and methods to research it in depth, what was less well known was that there were more carriers than the physical.
The next most common was spiritual patterns, energy waveforms that imprint from a strong individual onto one whose spirit and soul were just beginning to form. Between sympathetic magic and literally surrounding the embryo, mothers had the strongest imprinting of spiritual patterns onto their offspring. Typically fathers had the second largest impact. However, sufficiently powerful entities could leave imprints upon those who lived near them for long periods of time, which is why tribes or villages of more mortal races who served a single dragon for many generations tended to take on draconic traits, despite no actual mingling of bloodlines.
Then there were the bloodline travelers, the blessings and curses specifically tied to an individual and all their progeny. While normal spiritual patterns mingled and could change and fade, these acted more like symbionts or parasites, exactly duplicating themselves and attaching to each descendant during conception. Upon occasion a particularly powerful yet poorly constructed curse acted like a disease, infecting all future progeny of anyone the actual carrier had sex with, even if that other person did not conceive a child with the curse bearer. Blessings being so poorly constructed were even rarer, but it was with good reason that most people preferred being ignored by the sidhe over gaining even their blessing.
Beings that did not innately have a physical form generally did not have a physical carrier or pattern and relied entirely upon spiritual waveform patterns.
Constructed entities were all over the place, assuming that they could pass on heritable information rather than just manually constructing a new entity.
As for dungeons… come to think of it, he didn’t know if there was a way to pass on dungeon-specific heritage information. They didn’t have parents. His avatars could pass on physical information based on the form he constructed, and he was pretty sure he made at least a small imprint in the way of spiritual energy, but he had no idea about passing on heritable information for his core. Could that be done?
For that matter, with his new avatar form: if he fathered a child with this avatar, what information would be passed on? What would be the default ‘true’ form for the child? He had no idea, that had not been part of his considerations when making this pattern.
While Mordecai continued to muse over this thought via his avatar, his core was focused mostly on Moriko, while occasionally checking in on Kazue. Moriko seemed to be handling things better now that she’d adjusted and most of her fears laid to rest. He was somewhat curious about how she’d come to have such a high level of concern about interacting with the court. To be fair, her worries were not entirely unfounded, but she was also getting the chance to learn a lesson about power, whether it be political or fiscal. The more power one held and the more securely one held it, the less one had to worry about all the minor proprieties. A well-established monarchy was much like an ‘old money’ family, they did not have fear or envy or need eating at them.
Moriko’s concerns about such games would more likely come into play around minor nobility who cared about raising their rank and standing. From what he’d seen through Moriko’s experiences, that seemed most likely to be second or third-generation new nobility, as the first-generation folk seemed to be people like that champion, Bellona.
The night waned on, and eventually, a well fed Moriko made her way back to the temple intending to fall asleep, only to find her room filled with boxes she had to figure out how to handle.
As for Kazue, well, he had the attention of her core at least, but her avatar was having a little ‘adventure’ for the night, and neither party had ventured into the library yet. Instead, they had set up in their respective rest areas, and Kazue was having a little ‘camp out’ with her friends.
For the shrine maidens, Kazue had asked them to have this little party with her after they had finished the plays. It had been early enough they probably could have pushed through the library if they had focused on just solving normal puzzles, but this was a chance for these friends to reconnect. Plus he suspected that she had some special plans for the library the next day.
As for the explorers, they’d had a slightly rough time. It seems his wife had been feeding the laganthros all the information about the tactics that the party had been using, and the rabbit folk had put together teams to stress and test the explorers, taking advantage of numbers and foreknowledge to make up for the lack in raw power.
Running through five different groups of coordinated combatants who had prepared themselves for exactly the party’s anticipated tactics had worn their patience thin. The harassing attacks and traps of the third floor’s boss room had then pushed them to their breaking point, and they stopped trying to conserve their resources, unleashing their strongest spells and straining flesh and bone to their limits to finish Betty and Umbrowl off as fast as they could. Which wasn’t as fast as they would have liked, as the pair had taken notes and did their best to play keep away while throwing out ranged attacks and triggering traps. Neither of the bosses were quite strong enough to solo any of the kitsune with great odds of success, but in this home environment and with the advantage of the redesigned traps they were able to push the kitsune to their limits before Kazue had called the fight in the visitor’s favor.
So now they were resting and healing up as they prepared to challenge the fourth floor’s library the next day.

2023.05.31 01:59 AutoModerator WEEKLY TYPING THREAD: Please read this before creating "typing help" posts and for help with interpreting test results!

Welcome to the world of Enneagram! Please do not create posts regarding interpretation of your test results or typing questions ("type me", "what type am I?", "what type do you think this is?", “guess my type”) in Enneagram. With so many people trying to determine their type, it creates clutter and repetition in the feed with similar answers given for every post, and is frustrating to the community. Instead, please comment on this post with questions related to finding your type or typing other people and we will try our best to help you. This post will be refreshed at the end of every Tuesday in order to ensure your comment is seen throughout the week. You can also head over to EnneagramTypeMe and TypingEnneagram for subreddits dedicated to helping you find your type.
‘Type me’ Tuesdays
The exception to the above rule is every Tuesday, type-me questions are welcome on the main page (12:00AM-11:59PM UTC). Please flair your post appropriately, and still no test results please.
Interpretation of test results
The enneagram is a model of personality that focuses on why we do what we do, rather than our external traits themselves. Because of this, test results are, at best, a starting place for discovering your type. The top results give you an idea of what types you might be, but in order to know for sure, you’ll have to read up on the types and do some introspection of your internal motivations in addition to your patterns of behaviour and coping mechanisms.
You can find some basic starting summaries of the 9 types at enneagram institute:
Typing help
If you do decide to ask for help with typing on Tuesday or in this thread, others will need descriptions of how you relate to the core motivations, fears, harmonic triads, defence mechanisms and / or coping patterns of the types you’re torn between to help you in a meaningful way. Because the enneagram is based on your own internal motivations, only you can ultimately confirm your type, but the more detail you can give and the more honest you can be about your internal motivations and how these relate to possibly dysfunctional behaviour, the more likely someone will be able to help you get there. Be sure to indicate what types you're considering for yourself /others and why you think you may relate to those types for the best results.
Please feel free to post on the main page (anytime) regarding questions about the types you’re considering or subtleties between them in order to try to understand the types better while you figure things out, but make sure this is phrased such that you are looking for understanding of the types themselves, not a typing.
Lastly, for deeper knowledge, here are some recommended books:
The Complete Enneagram(Beatrice Chestnut)
The Wisdom of the Enneagram (Riso and Hudson)
The Enneagram (Helen Palmer)
Character and Neurosis (Claudio Naranjo)
Thank you so much for your understanding and cooperation in helping to keep this community fun & engaging for everyone. Best of luck in finding your enneagram type!

How to Start a YouTube Automation Business: The Step-by-Step Guide for Setting Up a Cash Cow Channel in 2023
How I make $13K per month
If you’re looking for an online business model that generates passive income, a YouTube automation business may just be your best option after local lead generation
. YouTube automation channels have been gaining traction for a few years as a legitimate way to make money online and it’s no surprise why. A quick search using the global analytics tool, Search Blade, reveals that many of these channels, like Bright Side, make hundreds of thousands in revenue every year. That’s some serious cash flow for not having to show your face or even be involved much at all in the operations of the business.
If you want to start your own YouTube cash cow channel to make a passive income, then this YouTube automation business step-by-step guide is for you! In the following article, we look at the YouTube automation business model, go over some of the major pros and cons, highlight 4 key metrics to understand, break down each aspect of the business you need to outsource in order to automate the work, list out the 5 main steps to start your automation channel, and some major mistakes to avoid. Plus, 8 additional strategies to monetize your YouTube automation business beyond the YouTube Partner Program so you can set up multiple income streams and maximize your profit potential!
What is YouTube automation?
YouTube automation is an online business model that employs outsourcing and automation tools to create a YouTube channel that operates and generates money independently (mostly) of the channel owner. As the YouTube channel owner, you build a team to handle the entire content development process, from research to content creation and video publishing. A successful YouTube automation channel pays for itself through the revenues it produces and leaves the owner with a solid profit after all expenses.
YouTube automation channels do not incorporate a YouTube influencer in the content like the videos by many other successful channels, such as Mr. Beast
videos. Instead, these are faceless YouTube channels that rely heavily on stock footage or animations with voiceovers.
Should you start a YouTube automation channel? The pros and cons
Is a YouTube automation channel right for you? Here are some of the main pros and cons of the business model to help you decide.
Passive income
Passive income is the ability to make money without having to be actively involved in the operations that generate the cash. You outsource all aspects of your YouTube automation channel to your team, so the money you make is passive income. Most business models, like a social media marketing agency
, do not generate passive income. Passive income is a major advantage of a YouTube automation business, as it allows you to engage in the things you enjoy instead of working.
Not constrained by channel creator
Unlike traditional YouTube influencer channels that rely on the availability of a single person, the content output of a YouTube automation channel is unconstrained. For example, Mr. Beast needs to be involved and available for every video his channel produces, resulting in around just two videos per month to be published, while a YouTube automation channel can publish content at a much faster rate because it's not dependent on the creator.
Multiple income streams
With a YouTube automation channel, you aren’t limited to just a single source of income for your channel, like ad revenue. There are many ways you could potentially monetize a YouTube automation channel, which we’ll discuss in more depth later in the article.
Establishing a successful channel takes time
According to HubSpot, it takes an average of 22 months for a YouTube channel to reach just 1,000 subscribers. Well, if you want to make a decent income with your YouTube channel, you’ll need closer to 100,000 subscribers at least! Although YouTube automation channel growth rates vary dramatically, expect to spend around two years publishing consistent, high-quality content before the channel performs well.
Need capital to invest
Although you can start a YouTube channel for free by making your own content, your channel won’t be “automated” until you can hire out a team to handle the work for you. According to YouTube automation expert Joey Gaule, you can get simple videos made for around $30 to $50 if just using stock footage and voice overs. However, if you want to develop high-quality videos that incorporate animation, you’ll be looking at closer to $100+ for each video.
YouTube is extremely competitive
There is a ridiculous amount of content already on YouTube. In fact, according to Zippia, approximately 500 hours of new videos are uploaded to YouTube every minute! No matter which niche you choose, there’s no avoiding at least some competition.
An alternative passive income online business
U can make use of a text to speech software to create your videos by inserting text and and it will generate human like speech within seconds
A YouTube automation channel can be a great investment for someone who is looking for passive income a few years down the road. However, the extended waiting period before you make money is not for everyone. If you're looking for a much faster way to generate passive income, a local lead generation business is an alternative online business model that could be a better fit. With a local lead generation business, you can start earning passive income in a matter of a few months.
Local lead generation involves ranking a website on the first page of Google for a local business niche and then selling the leads the website generates to a local business for hundreds to thousands of dollars each month. Learn more about starting a local lead generation business here
4 Key metrics to know for a YouTube automation channel
RPM, or revenue-per-mille, is a metric that tells you how much you’ve earned on average per 1,000 video views.
Watch time
What aspects of a YouTube automation channel do you need to outsource?
Research and optimization
If you want your faceless YouTube channel to be a highly successful money making machine, you’ll need someone to do the necessary research to find video ideas and optimize the title and description of the video for YouTubes algorithm. A YouTube SEO expert will use the right keywords so that the most people possible can find your video content through YouTube search.
Script writing
A good script writer may be the most important hire for your automation channel. The script writer finds interesting points to keep the audience engaged throughout the video and really sets the tone of your videos. A professional script writer knows how best to present information to the audience to make sure they keep watching the video as long as possible and, therefore, plays a major role in your channel's watch time. Plus, if you hire a voice actor, you need to tell them exactly what to say in the video.
Voice over
Ever notice how some voices are able to demand your attention more than others? That’s the power a good voice over actor can have on your YouTube content. For channels that don’t use YouTube influencers in the video content, a high-quality voice over actor is an essential component to creating content that maintains attention.
Video editing
Obviously, if you want to make videos but automate your role as a YouTube creator, you’ll need someone with access to top-notch software and editing skills to handle your video editing. A good video editor finds the right clips and puts them together in a meaningful way to provide proper visual context.
You won’t grow your channel unless you get YouTube viewers to choose your videos over the millions of other options available. That’s why having someone on your team who understands YouTube marketing trends with the skills to create captivating thumbnails is crucial to the success of your channel. The thumbnail is the first visual information people see before deciding whether they should watch your video, so it needs to grab their attention and coerce them into clicking the video.
Channel management
Aside from automating the content creation aspect of your YouTube channel, you can also outsource the actual management of the channel if you want to make it completely autonomous. A YouTube channel manager manages your channel from within the YouTube studio, scheduling videos and keeping track of the YouTube analytics to suggest content adjustments to the team when applicable.
5 Steps to set up a cash cow YouTube automation channel
1. Select a YouTube niche
The first step in starting your YouTube automation channel is deciding which YouTube niche you want to create content in. Not all niches are equal. Some niches are substantially more competitive than others, and those are usually the niches with the highest RPM payouts as well. High value niches like “personal finance” or “how to make money online” are one's advertisers will pay a lot to run YouTube ads in, so channel owners benefit from larger paychecks if monetizing through the YouTube Partner Program.
However, that doesn’t mean you can’t succeed in those niches, it just means it will be harder. You can certainly find a micro niche or a unique angle for your content that sticks to establish your space within the niche. Check out this comprehensive list of YouTube automation niches with long-term profit potential
2. Create a branded YouTube account
With just a personal Google account, you’re able to like videos and subscribe to channels on YouTube. However, if you want to create your own channel and publish content for the public, you need to create a YouTube channel. You have the option of creating a personal YouTube account, or a branded account for a business. For a YouTube automation channel, you’ll want to set up a branded YouTube account because it allows multiple users to access and manage the account. Also, a branded YouTube channel keeps your personal information private. Here’s how to create a branded YouTube account.
  1. Go to YouTube
  1. if you wish.
Once your channel is set up, you'll need to add channel art like a branded logo and banner to show your audience that your channel is legit. You can create these yourself with free tools like Canva
, or outsource it to a professional like you'll do with most of your channel tasks.
3. Build a high-quality automation team
You may have to do much of the work yourself in the beginning if you’re trying to start a faceless YouTube channel on a small budget. However, if your goal is a YouTube automation channel, you’ll eventually need to put together a team to create your videos and manage the channel. Fortunately, there are many available freelancer websites you can use to hire high-quality and affordable remote workers for your business. Some of the best freelancer websites to hire talent for your YouTube automation business include:
4. Use tools to automate processes
In order for your team to work together efficiently, you need to put the necessary structure and processes in place. In 2023, modern teams can leverage a variety of workflow management tools like Asana
, Trello**, or** Clockify
. These tools enable your YouTube automation channel to effectively assign work, track project hours and progress, and organize a content schedule.
Beyond workflow management tools, you should also use at least one YouTube automation tool to improve your business operations. The two best YouTube automation tools are Tube Buddy
, both of which offer a variety of free and paid tools to help grow your YouTube channel by automating data analysis, research, video editing, and video optimization.
5. Monetize your channel
Once your YouTube automation channel starts to attract a decent amount of YouTube views and subscribers, it’s time to monetize your YouTube business. The standard method for YouTube automation channels to monetize is by letting YouTube ads run on your content through the YouTube Partner Program. Requirements for a channel to be eligible for the YouTube Partner Program include:
However, the YouTube Partner program isn’t the only way you can monetize your YouTube Automation channel.
8 Alternative ways to monetize a YouTube automation channel
  1. Super chats - For channels that live stream their videos, a super chat is when a viewer pays to have their live chat message pinned. Super chat amounts range from $1 up to $500!
  2. Print on demand - With a print on demand service like Printful
or Printify
  1. or OnlyFans, you can offer your audience access to exclusive channel content in exchange for a recurring subscription fee.
YouTube automation mistakes to avoid
Some people are misled that YouTube automation is just taking already published content and reuploading it on your own channel without any real work. Unfortunately, reuploading another creator’s content may work on other social media platforms like TikTok, but on YouTube, you’re likely to receive a copyright strike.
Using copyright music
If you use copyright music in your YouTube automation videos, YouTube will flag your video so it can’t be monetized when you upload it. Therefore, you are not able to earn from the YouTube Partner Program when using copyright music in your video. Fortunately, there is tons of royalty free music available on the internet that you can use in your videos, but it just won’t be any mainstream

2023.05.31 01:58 EcoWitch Husband and I have different opinions on what food should be kept stocked for our kid

I know this is a controversial topic. And yes, I know there are no 'bad' foods. No, we don't talk about our bodies or other people's bodies with our kid around - not even if they're in the house and we assume she's sleeping. We don't moralize food around her. I think we have the bare basics down. Just didn't want all the responses to be the usual Reddit platitudes.
My husband doesn't have an ED. He's healthy and works out. He knows about my ED. He thinks I've taken the 'no bad foods' thing too far with our daughter. She's 7.
I know what an 'ideal' way of eating for a child would be, but I don't think it's realistic. I don't want there to be any forbidden foods. My husband thinks the house should be stocked with plenty of variety, but all of it healthy.
Food that's stocked specifically for her: Individual bags of Gold Fish and Cheez Its. She also has Nutrigrain bars, Chewy bars, Froot Loops, Bagel Bites. Other foods she eats are pancakes, white bread that I bake, peanut butter, and cream cheese. There's still leftover chocolate from Easter as she ended up with quite a few pounds of it. The only things she eats that he approves of are apples, blueberries, strawberries, bananas, oranges, cheese, and pretzels. She refuses to eat meat, yogurt or vegetables. She's been asking for ice cream for weeks but that's where my husband really draws the line as far as keeping sweets in the house.
Also, we DO have her try a new fruit, vegetable, or healthy meal every week. She has never liked one. Generally, if it's not highly processed she thinks it's disgusting.
She receives a school lunch every day. I know they're notorious for being bad, but her school is VERY well funded and serves great food with a nice variety. She'll only eat bread, fries, and pizza. They offer a wide variety of meats, tofu, Impossible burgers, yogurts, healthy snack bars, fresh (yes, really) fruits and vegetables. She's not interested.
Most of my husband's family are severely obese, including the kids. Most of my family is severely obese as well. He thinks my stressing about giving her an eating disorder is going to cause her to grow up relying on hyperpalatable foods for comfort, entertainment, hunger, everything. She does have plenty of entertainment and hobbies. We do play with her. But she'd gladly choose Cheez its over playing.
I don't know who's right. Should I slowly phase out most of the less than healthy foods?
I've seen these discussions on Reddit countless times and there's never a specific opinion that seems to win the majority.
I just want an outside opinion. I don't want to be screwing this up.

2023.05.31 01:57 Geislerkraft1 Best crop to grow and animals to ranch?

Hey guys, I've been playing ONI for a while and just got the spaced out dlc, what would you guys consider to be the most effective crop to grow, as well as the best animals to ranch for a food source? I usually do hatches as my meat source, but they seem to be pretty resource/time demanding.

2023.05.31 01:57 Gloomberrry I keep getting knocked down and I don't know if I can get back up again....

I'm sorry if this doesn't make sense....I'm literally so beside myself at the moment and have no one to confide in.... I am so incredibly overwhelmed right now. I've always been the kind of person who flies through life by the seat of my pants. Stability isn't something I ever really had, so I've never really had a problem with it. But I'm realizing now that's always worked out for me because I've always had a great support network. Caring friends, a big family. But now as things are falling apart as they often do, I'm doing it alone. My mom moved out of state, my sisters moved 4 hours away and I've been growing apart from all of my friends. I was supposed to get a house with my current roommate, my best friend of 7 years and best friends brother. But for whatever reason, after we applied for said house best friend says living together will ruin our friendship, so he was going to bail. That really upset me......A week before we had been drinking and talking about how excited we were about it and how it was going to make both of our lives I felt like it was very out of nowhere. Now I'm not proud of it, but I went off on him when he told me about how he was being selfish and I was super upset. The next day he sent me a text something along the lines of "I have this weird urge to tell u I appreciate u" which set me off again. I told him that I cared about him, but I needed cool off before we spoke again, to that he replied he didn't feel like "waiting around" and blocked me. That same day, I found out I was yet again passed over for a promotion but was expected to train the person who got the position instead and was knocked down to part time. I found all of this out before a shift. I was in my car trying to compose myself when I called my mother, something which I rarely do since she's moved to try to vent. But no answer. However I did get a hold of my eldest sister who decided to share with me that our other sister had a violent mental health episode and attacked her fiance, and had to be picked up by police. Now I've grown pretty numb to her chaos, but she does have a young daughter so the idea of my niece being involved with all of that was definitely a giant source of worry. So much so I didn't even really bring.up to my sister why I called.her in the first place. So I walk into my job, trying to keep it together when low and behold this is the day the owner of the company is here. Now I'm barely holding it together so I figure, fuck it. I'm not getting the promotion anyway, I'm going to leave early. And I try to explain to the owner why I'm frustrated about the work place environment but she just does not listen at all. So I go home and try to regroup. It was looking like me and my current roommate were just going to get a new 2 bedroom for ourselves because the one were currently in is bug infested. We filled out an application for one....but the following day at work (we work together) my roommate had a bit of a break down. A coworker told me she was freaking out in the back room, so I go in to check on her and she accuses me of being apart of some conspiracy to spy on her, and gaslight her about it. I'm incredibly confused, and then she just runs off. I'm not entirely sure what to do....but the owner had the audacity of accusing her of being on drugs (which I know for a fact she wasn't. She has a history of mental illness) and I just quit on the spot. I know it wasn't wise, but I had no idea what else to do. I felt unappreciated, unstable, unsupported. So I walked out. And that was definitely the dumbest thing I could have done. I found a new job but it doesn't start for two weeks. I've been trying to door dash to make ends meet, but the most I've ever gotten was 60$ in a day and that's not counting what I had to pay in gas.....and now I'm having to find a place to live on my own but it's so incredibly expensive. I thought maybe I could go live with my stable sister, but low and behold crazy sister is living with her while she's in recovery. And don't get me wrong, I'm so happy she's seeking help and trying to get better, but since she is staying with our eldest sister, I no longer have anywhere to go. My mother doesn't have the space for me, my closest friends refuse to speak to me, and I don't have anyone close enough to me to ask for that kind of space, but our lease is up June 1st regardless. I've applied to one house, but didn't get it, and all of the apartments I've looked at have administrative fees 200 or more which I can't afford on top of applications fees, deposit ect I'm just counting down the days until I have to move into my car and give up my cat....and like I know once I start working again and saving money I'll be okay. And like a month or two in my car isn't that bad, like at least I have a car to sleep in, but I'm just feeling so very small and helpless and can't imagine things ever being good again

2023.05.31 01:56 Khotehk Argent Earth - Chapter 1

In the first age, in the first battle, when the shadows first lengthened, one stood.
Burned by the embers of Armageddon, his soul blistered by the fires of Hell and tainted beyond ascension, he chose the path of perpetual torment.
In his ravenous hatred he found no peace; and with boiling blood he scoured the Umbral Plains seeking vengeance against the dark lords who had wronged him.
He wore the crown of the Night Sentinels, and those that tasted the bite of his sword named him...
The Doom Slayer.
Memory Transcription Subject: Vikam, Venlil Space Corps Officer
Date: [Standardized Human Time] July 12th, 2136
It had been ten days since the… incident. The Steady River had barely made it back in one piece, the strain on trying to jump out of that system was somehow even worse than when we were jumping in.
I couldn’t get it out of my head, the sight of those red ships, and the horrors I knew were inside despite how much I tried to convince myself that those things aren’t real. They have to be. If those red ships exist, the monsters that came alongside them existed as well. My only reprieve being that I’ve never seen a real one, only their hazy appearances from my nightmares filled in their place, so at least I can remain ignorant to their true appearance.
And now here I was on Aafa, alongside many other officers of the exploration fleet, those who were still stable enough to come anyway, waiting to deliver our direct report to the Federations emergency assembly. I don’t know why they wanted us to give a direct report anyways, the ship's recordings were still completely intact, and had been gone over by everyone from our greatest military minds, to the first contact office, to dozens of predator experts. The only thing we could truly say for certain was that these red ships could be nothing other than predators. Their designs alone could have told us that, the recordings and scans allowed us to get a clear look at them, and some of them looked like they had a model of a head sitting on the front, bearing teeth down at whatever prey they were chasing.
Speaking of predators and prey, it seems as though nobody could agree on the nature of the pale ships.
Those that said they must be predators pointed out their ships' armaments, being covered in massive weapons. Their main turrets and spinal cannons alone were larger than some of our own ships, and packed with so many smaller weapon systems that each ship held dozens if not hundreds of ships worth of weapons. They also pointed out how the pale fleet didn’t flee when outnumbered so heavily against those red predators. But maybe like us, they couldn’t. Maybe that red energy was the source of the disruptions to our own technology, and the predators used it as a way to force a confrontation, preventing any retreat. The pale fleet was sitting much closer to the anomaly. This theory couldn’t be proven or disproven, we knew next to nothing of either side, but going over our scans again we saw that the system held a series of massive stations and shipyards, so maybe the pale fleet couldn’t afford to run away? Or were they counting on static defenses to give them the upper hand against a foe that outnumbered them six to one.
The inverse argument also came up, people claiming they were in a situation much like ours, being endlessly assaulted by predators. All the recordings showed actual consistent fleet formations, albeit unusual ones, as opposed to their enemies’ seemingly simple use of swarm tactics, much like the Arxur. Not to mention the recordings showing how a part of that fleet broke off and put themselves between ourselves and the predators all without losing cohesion, something very few of our own fleets could pull off, if any at all. The pale fleet putting themselves in danger for our sakes was the only thing that allowed us to escape at all.
But that just bounced the argument back to the other side. How could any prey keep such composure when being so horribly outnumbered by such a large margin, fear should have caused at least some kind of disruptions but we saw none.
It’s impossible to tell, which I suppose is why the arguing is still going on, like it has been for days. Nothing can be decided or agreed upon until we decipher that titanically encrypted data pack we were sent. We tried cleaning up the recording of the transmission we were sent, but little could be done to do so. The only thing they could make out was that the voice, in addition to being heavily distorted, was also being synthesized, and was telling us to reactivate our shields and reroute to some system named ‘Alpha Centauri’, a system which no race had any records of. The general consensus is that they sent the coordinates in the data packet, the one we still can’t access.
However there was something of interest in the recordings and transmissions that we could make out without decryption, an identifying signal, one of an organization or military most likely. Every single signal from the pale fleet was labeled as coming from the ‘Armored Response Coalition’. The name alone implies that this isn’t one species, but several working together to defend against a common enemy. That… actually makes the most sense, no race alone could have enough power to deal with such a tremendous force. Yeah, that… that had to be the only solution right?
But if that’s the case… how did this happen? Did the predators achieve space flight on their own? Did the pale ones try to uplift them like we did once, repeating our greatest mistake? They both used similarly unknowable energies and tech, was it the same technology or was one based off the other? The complete lack of understanding was driving me insane. I can’t make sense of anything. The darkest recesses of my mind spoke out against my will. ‘They’re both predators, no prey would ever act as they did, be that aggressive.’
That’s completely backwards, No predator would sacrifice themselves to save us!
‘They didn’t see your faces, they didn’t show theirs, you jumped into a battle with what might as well have been a warfleet, they saved you because they thought you were predators as well.’
That makes even less sense. Predators would just leave their competition to die, or kill them off themselves.
‘How do you know that’s not why they’re fighting the reds? Both are killing their competition.’
No predator could act as they did. They showed no hostility to us and didn’t hesitate to help without even knowing us. And each other! There’s obviously more than one race amongst them!
‘Even the Arxur keep slaves.’
There’s no way they’re anything like the Arxur.
‘Do you truly believe tha-
My thoughts were interrupted as a nearby door opened and a Kolshian walked in. “The assembly is almost ready for your account of events, are you ready?” No, but I didn’t truly have a choice here, did I?
“Yes, I’ll be fine, just give me a moment.” The Kolshian gave an affirmative gesture and went back to wherever he came from.
Well, I suppose this was happening. I tried to calm myself the best I could, but it was pretty much useless at this point. I couldn’t stop shaking at the thought of having to verbally recount that living nightmare.
What could they possibly have been arguing about this whole time anyways? I’ve been here for more than half a claw. I braced myself and walked to the assembly chamber, and walking through the door I was met with exactly what I was imaging.
Ugghhhh…. Politics.
Shorter chapter this time, mainly to get it out faster.
And here we are shown the true monster of the universe, a weapon to surpass the tortures of hell, politics.

2023.05.31 01:56 Sad-Professional5549 I think my friend has PPA/PPD

My friend delivered a healthy baby on 5/25. For some context, her behavior was really erratic to me during her pregnancy. She would bring up things that I had said in the past (> 3 years ago) that hurt her feelings. She did the same thing with other friends as well. She explained that it was because she was really “hormonal” in the first trimester and we were able to move past it.
Fast forward to now and she was texting me last night about how she feels like she’s having an anxiety attack every time she tries to sleep. She said she’s worried that everyone is mad at her and keeps being reminded of bad memories. I did my best to reassure her and encouraged her to speak with her doctor. I also told her I would bring by some food this week to help.
Unfortunately I feel like that’s all that’s within my bandwidth right now. I’m 16 weeks pregnant with my first after suffering with infertility for 2.5 years. I care about her but her behavior is really stressing me out. It concerns me that she cares so much about what people think and not about her newborn. I might need to establish more boundaries if this continues but I feel guilty.
Any advice or suggestions are welcome.

2023.05.31 01:55 Throwaway_210804 I'm (18M) standing up on my legs in my life, yet I am torn between two worlds

High school came to an end, I had good and bad memories, and many missed chances because of my unhealthy, addictive life. So, I was abusing drugs during high school, and also at the end of elementary school. As with any junkie, it's not only occasionally doing drugs at party, once a year. It was every time I hang out with friends. I wasn't very social, I am fat, therefore little to no chances to socialize or even think about having relationship (I had one, with stereotypical toxic alt girl with dyed hair. I don't judge people and these are just stereotypes, it was coincidence that she fit that description, and she f-ed me up big time). I was probably wasting life on festivals, raves and drugs, aswell as food. As I am soon attending college, I got my shit together. Started going to gym, learned to respect myself and my time, started studying and learning what I love (3D animation and game design), although always had hobbies, I found a way to mix usefulness/utility and joy (for example, I may earn money as a 3D artist). However, as my classmates had neutral opinion of me, I knew they avoided me because I had substance abuse problem (for example, this new year they forbid me to come, even though at first they allowed it, because I would either smoke or do coke). To add salt on my wound, the other friend group (one I did drugs with) accepted me on New Year's Eve, but later all went downhill, because they started spreading rumours how I am sexual predator, pedophile, and whatnot. I was confused because I never did anything close to that, neither think, it was like they put my name in a random story they made up, and it ended up people thinking I am that. Not gonna lie, that motivated me to cut them off even more, because I was already distancing myself, knowing that these kinds of junkie drug-driven social circles are very harmful. Out of that circles, my best friend, and another friend, let's say, escaped, and knew very well these stories were made up.
I doubt I will have any new chance until I lose weight, so my life has still long way to go, atleast a year before I may consider "fitting into" society, until then, I have to train. hard. But hey, atleast I got my shit together. I'm torn between the world of vices and addiction, where I may eat whatever I want and do whatever I want, and being part of healthy friend circle I always longed for, but couldn't afford because fat fu--k gotta eat and fat dumbass gotta be fat, and find escape in drugs.
It really stings my heart and irritates me when mom asks me where am I going on vacation with friends, am I going to some festival, while the truth is, classmates are all going together on vacation, and drug addict friend group will stay in town doing stuff they usually do. I laugh it off with "Haha yeah, find me a friend group". I am stuck with my training and healing, with no vacations in plan because I threw away my 4 years of high school, aswell as one of most impactful periods where you're developing personality.
TL;DR I got my shit together, currently working on a long healing journey, and I am in limbo between functional and healthy society and drug-driven comfort zone with junkies. While everyone is going on vacation and feeling the joy of last high school summer, I will be working on myself and healing in order to get any chance at life again. Yeah, I'm still young, but the fact is I, and only I, am responsible for f---ing up my teen years, there is no excuse that I was just crazy youngster and whatnot.

2023.05.31 01:55 autotldr Laurie Whelan marks 21 years since wife and two daughters died in car crash, amid horror week on Victorian roads

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 73%. (I'm a bot)
While Victoria has had a horror week on the roads with 10 lives lost in four days, Mr Whelan has just marked 21 years since his wife and two teenage daughters were killed in a car crash.
The car they were in collided with a truck on an icy Sutton Grange Road in Sedgwick, Central Victoria.
When rural roads are the site of horrific fatal crashes, people can be quick to point to the deteriorating condition of the roads.
Road toll rises in almost every state and territory Independent monitoring of the national road toll finds deaths on Australia's roads have risen in almost every state and territory, prompting concerns the National Road Safety Strategy is failing.
"People are just not driving to the conditions and not paying attention to the road they're driving on.
"They're driving on unfamiliar roads, but still travelling at 100 kilometres an hour and not paying attention to what's what's around them.

2023.05.31 01:54 imbiggay96 Is it ok to cut off parents over sibling abuse?

I'm currently contemplating cutting my parents off for a bit and I'm struggling with the guilt I'm feeling around doing it.
Gonna give background bc reddit is anonymous so buckle up:
I was sexually abused by my older sibling from the ages of 10-12. It stopped because at 12 I told my mum, not really understanding what was happening, but knowing it shouldn't be.
My parents gave me a choice then about what I wanted to do: go to the police or have us both go to therapy and move on. I honestly didn't understand why they were both so upset at the time and I didn't want anyone to get in trouble so I said the therapy option. We both had 2 sessions and it wasn't mentioned again for several years.
I never processed what happened to me as a child or how I felt in that, I managed to push down the memories with self harming and pinching myself, to the point I don't have a clear recollection of those 2 years of my life anymore. I refused to acknowledge it to my friends and it was never mentioned within the family until I was 16.
The only reason I mentioned it at 16 was because I had a meltdown after hearing my brother playing his guitar really loudly, by that point I had developed musical "hallucinations" of faint guitar playing even when he wasn't there which I now understand to be flashbacks. I went in and told him to turn it down as I was becoming increasingly agitated (I also have autism & ADHD) he laughed at me and told me to fuck off. Usually this happens and I'd just leave, but for some reason in that moment I flipped out and started screaming that he ruined my life and he just laughed and I lost it, I tried to strangle him with his guitar whilst screaming that I hate him until my dad came in and physically dragged me off him, taking me outside. I was inconsolable and asked my parents to kick him out, they obviously said no, so I left to go stay with friends. This was the first time we acknowledged this in 4 years.
Once I had let this out I confided in my CAMHS (child mental health) worker about the trauma, the musical hallucinations, the self harm and the fact I wanted to not live. She got me in touch with social and then youth services to help me find somewhere else to live.
My parents were annoyed by this decision of me to leave, but refused to have my brother to move out, so I was placed into a homeless hostel for my own protection and peace of mind. They maintain to this day that I was never kicked out and chose to leave off my own accord.
I stayed there for about 4 months, it was a horrible dangerous place for a 16 year old quiet nerdy kid, I quickly grew hostile and developed a drug problem for a while. Then my brother moved out so I returned home to live with my parents.
Around this time my mother's alcoholism, pill dependencies and mental health issues also really began to intensify, but I did end up staying there for just shy of 2 years. I was no longer the sweet top of class nerdy kid and was now a college dropout, with severe depression. My mum would routinely scream abuse at me whilst blackout drunk also. Still I was determined to fix things so at 18 I re-enrolled in college to finally get my A Levels despite my dad's anger about this (he wanted me to work and pay rent) and I stopped using the drugs I was on. Life was starting to slowly get back on track.
Until about 2 months later, a week or so after I turned 19 when my parents informed me my brother had fucked up his life again and was moving home in 4 days.
I pled and protested with my parents that 4 days does not give me time to find somewhere else to live, they got angry at me for dredging up the past and being unfair on them and my sibling. My sibling also sent me abusive messages calling me names because I was making them feel bad.
So with no other real choice I found myself homeless and sofa surfing, sleeping with guys for places to stay etc, until I made it up the waitlist for the local YMCA hostel. My mates that I stayed with for most of it lived over 20 miles away so I was unable to get to college and flunked my A levels. I was kicked out of college shortly after I moved into the YMCA.
My family eventually "forgave" me for my behaviour and got back on speaking terms. All the while I'm living in hostels & unsafe situations. The next 5 or so years are a traumatic mess to be honest, I ended up an alchoholic with multiple suicide attempts, so much trauma, an eating disorder, further traumas and assaults by the unsafe people I lived with and an apathetic attitude towards living. My mother also was a big drain on me over that time, exhibited narcissistic behaviours, triggered me with food and on one holiday scratched herself up and tried to convince me I did it while she was drunk, I actually did cut her off for 3 months after this till we both got sober, but reconnected with her due to pressure from my dad.
Eventually in 2021 when I was 25, after a pretty serious suicide attempt and psychiatric admission I realised I was an alcoholic and joined AA and there I started to get well, for the first time in my life.
AA really saved me from myself and helped me get my life back on track, at this point I had my own place and a decent job and started trying to make something of myself and be a better person, which has been working well, but the one thing I never addressed in any of that was the trauma.
I still had to see my brother throughout the years due to parental pressure and as such had sort of siphoned off my trauma and had a disconnect to it and I thought that was working.
Unfortunately earlier this year I spiralled into a major depressive episode, I remained sober, but even the best of programs couldn't hold the suicidal ideation at bay. I ended up in a psych ward this time for 5 weeks. It was terrifying to be in a place where my life was on track, yet I still felt so disgusting and hopeless I didn't want to live. Although I still wasn't fully ready to admit that my trauma is what brought me that point. Despite daily flashbacks, self harming behaviours and nightmares of the abuse where I was at fault. I had it so compartmentalised and was keen to look for any other cause other than that.
My dad came to visit me after I'd been there about 2 weeks and informed me that my brother isn't doing well and I need to make more of an effort to see him. For the first time in my life I attempted to put a boundary in place and said that actually I don't think I should be seeing him ever again. Dad asked me "Is this because of the stuff that happened when you were kids?" And I responded "Do you mean the reason I keep ending up in places like this, no matter what I do?" And that was the first time I ever verbally acknowledged that this trauma was at the route of everything.
We spoke at length for several hours, my dad explaining that they always chose him because I'm capable while my sibling is a fuck up. I said I'm not coping. I'm literally in a psych ward? He said that he put me on a life raft while he helped my sibling and I said you didn't put me on a life raft, I went to a fucking YMCA. After that he heard me for the first time and semi acknowledged that they'd made some wrong moves and said he'd speak to mum about what to do moving forward so I don't have to see my brother again and can finally unpack this immense trauma in therapy.
That conversation opened the flood gates while I was in hospital and I was diagnosed by my psychiatrist with Complex-PTSD and assigned a trauma therapist. I was absolutely broken having finally admitted the guilt and shame I've felt my whole life, but at the same time felt some hope, that I can finally move on.
Until a week or so later when I spoke to my mum and mentioned the conversation with my dad, she said he had never spoken to her. She seemed uncomfortable and bored when I spoke about uow it has affected me and asked how it would make my sibling feel if I stopped seeing him. When I relayed it explaining how dad finally started to acknowledge how difficult it has been when they chose my brother over me, she stopped me and angrily/defensively stated "I have to stop you there. I person have NEVER chosen anyone over anyone." At this point I shut down. I ended the call and fell into a deeper depression hole that the nurses took weeks to pull me out of.
A few days before my release I saw my dad and I brought up the situation asking what's happening with it and he and mum had any conclusions around me not having to see sibling and he snapped and dismissively said "What do you expect me to do about it? I think the best thing is if you just move on and not dwell on stuff." Again I shut down and once again the batton was passed back to me to hold.
See that's what I've been doing my entire life. Carrying it so my family don't get upset, excusing my parents, excusing my sibling, justifying them. I've carried this burden, the blame, the self hatred and it's nearly killed me so many times. I just don't want to do it anymore. To carry it for them.
I got out 3 weeks ago and have slowly been returning to life, my parents barely contacted me for a week after I got out and I was supposed to be putting inplace boundaries, but felt too bad/missed them too much. They haven't asked how I am or how I'm feeling, because they don't want my answer. My mum ended up booking this weekend away just the two of us, but I ended up feeling this overwhelming sense that I shouldn't be going away with her, especially whilst I'm barely well again and I said I'm not ready for an overnight. Naturally I've got the usual silent treatment from her. I just feel so guilty, but again it's brought up all of this.
It's like my gut is screaming at me CUT THEM OFF, but I'm scared and I love them, even if they are toxic. I'm hesitant to unpick in therapy and scared I'm just going to go back to denial. Every person I've spoken to has suggested I cut them off for at least a few months, just while I focus on therapy and finally processing the trauma. I'm just so scared to do this. I want my parents around and I want them to love me, but they just can't do that in the way I need and I'm really scared of hurting them.
At the same time I know I NEED to put myself first and work through this, I think I need to let go with love, just for a bit.
Sorry this ended up being miles longer than expected, if anyone's read to the end of this misery, do you have any advice or words of encouragement, or alternatively if I'm being unreasonable please let me know. I just want to get this right, because right now I'm just sick of hurting.
