2023.05.29 14:49 SwissCheese4Collagen Weekly Bulletin Board Post- Week of May 29

I hope you're having a good morning Snarkers, it's time for the weekly Monday discussion/housekeeping/scheduling/general recap of events post again! Also, Happy Memorial Day if you are stateside.
I swear on the communal can of AquaNet in the girls' bedroom that I'm working on Actually Gunner's video, I'm just not sure how I want to break it up because I'm going to have to make it a 2-parter, you know, show ol OfNostrils how it's done. J/K but just for future reference, if they are over 20 minutes in runtime, I'm gonna make it into 2 recaps. That's been my general rule of thumb, a recap is roughly 20 minutes of non-tent. I also have started using dictation software again and are trying to get that fine-tuned so that two Dugglets posting on the same day won't completely wreck my hands. However, that means there may be some typos at first and I will do my best to go through and correct them. Otherwise, no word on Ra!s arrival and if Tru! has been any indication, she is going to be the new favorite since she hasn't rejected the camera...yet.
I think that's everything y'all, so until then, welcome to any new members, pull up a chair, put on a flair, discuss away in the recaps, or make a deep dive into the older vlogs, and most importantly enjoy!

##Background
Just turned 50 this year (50M) and started running (again) in Oct’22 from a base of zero exercise for the past five years (excepting having 3 small boys (5,7,&9) and the hustle of daily life, family walks, family activities etc. In 2014 I did a couch25k and between 2014-2017 started to run commute into work averaging about 10km per week over this period - (2014 - 900km; 2015 - 500km; 2016 - 650km; 2017 (jan-aug) - 500km). This culminated in a half-marathon race (Rock n Roll Dublin) in 2017 for which I didn’t follow a training plan but did a few longer runs of 13k(ish) and finished in c. 1:48 (ran out of steam at c.19k and had to run/walk a couple of times to finish).
Before 2014 - there was no exercise/running/training/gym - I was relatively ‘active’ but no sports/activities to note.
In October last year (‘22), I decided to go for a run to see how it felt and surprised myself by running 7km @ 6:10/km pace. I enjoyed it, and decided to get back running with a vague aspiration to complete a marathon in my 50th year….
##Training
… so I started training. Decided in November to book a bib in the Edinburgh marathon, figuring that 7 months should give me a decent enough training block. Avg went from 50km/week to 100km/week over this period.
Month Distance Avg Pace
------------------
Nov 216km 6:16/km
Dec 321km 6:07/km
Jan 284km 5:26/km
Feb 237km 5:25/km
Mar 291km 5:19km
Apr 412km 5:07/km
May 305km 5:00/km
Didn’t follow a specific plan (per se), generally ran 5 or 6 days a week with one long run (5:00/km to 5:30/km), one medium/tempo type run (4:40/km to 5:00/km), three easy runs (5:20/km) and a sprinkling of ParkRuns.
I had no (observable) issues in stepping up the mileage over this period, two small injury niggles,one in Nov and one in Feb, and I rested with no reoccurrence of either.
I self-diagnosed regularly occurring foot pain as a Mortons Neuroma (flared up after c.9km and could be run through - but painful) and went through a variety of shoe types to lessen the flare-ups. Settled on Altra’s and roomy footbox, which worked for me.
Parkrun (5k) times went from 25:26 (Oct’22) to 19:06 (May’22) over this period.
Other notable times -
10k times - avg sub-45mins on tempo/fast runs
Half-marathons - (did over 20 runs at this distance over the 7 months) ran x2 sub 1:40 and x1 sub 1:34 during the block (not races, just fast/tempo runs)
In Mar&Apr’23 I completed x5 long runs >30km (longest @33km) and a further x2 (27km & 29km) as part of the build up.
I trained with SIS gels and a water bottle filled with Tailwind mix during the long-runs and they settled ok, a little queasy but ok (I did all other runs (<27km) without nutrition or water)
The <1:35 half-marathon was the last fast/long run before the start of the taper (from 100km to 80km (wk1) to 55km (wk2) to 25km (wk3)).
##Plan & Pre-race
All marathon time predictors (runalyze; metathon; crplots) had me at a 3:10 to 3:12 marathon time based on my strava logs - I felt this was optimistic (4:34/km) as I had a tendency to drift (pace & heartrate) on longer runs. Based on the half-marathon times in the training block I felt i could sustain close to that pace for maybe 30km - but >40km would be a push - so settled on the following plan for race day:
First 16km (10 miles) at 4:40/km, next 16km (10miles) at 4:50/km, last 10km to keep legs moving and hold-on to the finish. Goal A - was to run a sub 3:25.
Pre-race prep was unremarkable - flew to Scotland (from Dublin) on Friday evening - ate well Fri/Sat (lots of pasta, steak, bread) slept ok . Collected bib Saturday morning, pottered around the city for a couple of hours , rested the rest of the day.
Race day morning, grabbed a banana, coffee, croissant - had 500ml of tailwind c. 2 hours before start - greased myself up (sunscreen & anti-chafe), bathroom, checked bag, warmed-up (stretches/gentle jog). Fuelling plan for the race was a gel every 6km topped-up with Tailwind which I carried in a hand-held bottle.
Weather was warm and overcast at the start (10am)
##Race
Start was largely downhill for the first 8km, and I tried to keep the pace under control. Legs felt strong and were turning-over well. Despite best efforts, the combination of the downhill, first marathon excitement, over-confidence, other runners pace, me being an idiot, had the first 8km in c.4:35/km pace - which was faster than intended, but not wildly so. The course then hit the sea front and the breeze helped to take the edge off the pace and I settled into the target pace of 4:40/km (-ish) for the next 8km.
Took the gels at 6km, 12km and 18km and sipped from the hand-held bottle (tailwind) throughout. I grabbed a few gulps from the on-course water as I ran-by. Weather started to warm-up as the sun broke through the clouds.
Hit 16km feeling good - slightly ahead of target pace and the race-plan was to run the second 16km at an avg 4:50/km so I eased off a little to adjust to plan.
Hit half marathon in 1:38ish which was ahead of plan, but I felt ok, knew I had completed a 1:34 half a few weeks back and the race-strategy was to target 4:50/km from 16k to 32k.
Then things changed at around 23/24k mark - legs started to lose some power which came as a surprise, I also started to feel a little nauseous. I skipped taking the planned gel at 24k as i felt i would be ill if i forced it down.
At 25k I just couldn’t hold a sub5:00/km pace at all. I recognised that I was in trouble and it was barely half-way through. Resolved to move to my long-run pace for the training block at 5:20/km and hoped this could see me through to the end. Took a gel at 30k and temperatures were getting warmer. Despite all the difficulties I hit 30k in 2:24 (avg. 4:50km) but i was weakening and getting worried.
When I reached 32k in the marathon I knew I was fucked, pace had slipped to 6:00/km, sun was beating down, other runners were struggling, and I started negotiating with myself to just. keep. running.
By 35k I had to start run/walking as my legs had completely gone. I was gutted but there was nothing left in the tank. Walking through the two water stations I could actually drink the bottles of water and was surprised at how thirsty/dehydrated I was. Pace times dropped off as I continued to run/walk for the next 5k. Nearing the end I gave it everything I had to run the final 2k.
Crossed the finish in 3:43
##Post-Race
Disappointed I couldn't run the whole 42k but recognise sub 3:45 is an achievement for a 50year old (couch to marathon in 7 months).
Hard to rationalise what went wrong here - initial thoughts:
1). Over-fatigued / over-trained - despite feeling strong during training this was not actually the case - taper ineffective (??)
2). Target pace too aggressive - over-confident/ego/greedy - did not respect the distance - went out too fast
3). Fuelling/hydration was wrong - sweated too much -relied on tailwind - did not take enough water on-course - skipped gel at 24k
probably a combination of all of the above factors.....
##Next Steps
i) Rest for a week
ii) Dublin marathon at the end of Oct
iii) Start structured plan Pfitz. 18/55 or 18/70

2023.05.29 14:44 Fun-Difference-2150 I am on a mission to lose 100 lbs in 6 months!

Hello you wonderful people of reddit so I know some people are going to advise me not to do this in such a short amount of time and to take it slow but I am putting a deadline on myself for a reason because I know it's possible!
So my mother went from 300 lbs to 190 lbs in 6 months!She recently gained all the weight back but not from not exercising it was from binge eating for 2 months after getting depressed.I was in it with her but lost motivation so many times because the scale number wouldn't budge but I know now that it was because I wasn't putting in my all to exercise and not sweating enough.
I do not want to count calories but I think I am going to go on a chemical diet to help my metabolism speed up!
I am currently 297.6 lbs and my goal is 198 lbs or even lower!🎉🤞😁
The reason for my weightloss plan is because I never look good in any fotos and I feel like my weight is starting to cause me to miss out on life with my partner and in general aswell as a lot of health issues being caused by my weight.I want to surprise him for when he comes back home in 6-7 months with a healthy partner that has tons more confidence because he is doing his best to build arm muscles to be able to pick me up for our engagement fotos!
But I feel such a huge mind block I was supposed to start today and people around me kept making me feel terrible for only wanting to take in a 1000 calories a day.Plus I have a slight food addiction that is terrible when you have so many distractions around especially if I am 20 almost engaged and living at my parents because apartments are so expensive.
If anyone has tips it would he appreciated a lot!
Thank you for reading my post.

2023.05.29 14:44 autotldr Millions of Chinese welcome panda back home after stay in US

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 65%. (I'm a bot)
Panda lovers who could not make it to the airport launched what they called an online pick-up for Ya Ya. "We welcome Ya Ya's return online" had chalked up 340 million reads on the Chinese messaging platform Sina Weibo by the time her 16-hour flight from Memphis, Tennessee, touched down.
Le Le's death in February and the emergence of pictures online of Ya Ya looking thin and bony only added to the concerns among panda lovers not only in China but also in the US and elsewhere.
The zoo spent $16m to build a giant panda facility with traditional Chinese cultural elements, set up a breeding management and veterinary team, and planted about 4 hectares of bamboo ahead of Ya Ya's arrival, according to a report last month in China's state-run Global Times.
"Ya Ya is returning to China to live out her golden years," Memphis Zoo said in a statement on Facebook as the panda left the US. "After 20 years, Ya Ya has become like family, and she will be sorely missed by the Memphis Zoo staff and the local community."
The Chinese government acknowledged the pandas had been well looked after in the US. "During the giant pandas' stay at the Memphis Zoo, they received good care from the zoo and great affection from the American people," Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokeswoman Mao Ning said on Wednesday.
His remains were returned to China on the same flight with Ya Ya. Beijing-based China analyst Einar Tangen blamed Western media for manufacturing a Chinese furore over Ya Ya's health.

2023.05.29 14:44 thanatica Cozy Grove economics

Mild spoilers ahead. Not story-related or visuals, but if you rather figure this out on your own, maybe stop reading now.
So I decided to do some research on how to yield maximum profit from processing (excess) materials. Some materials I have not found any profit yield for, yet others are off the charts. Here are my findings so far.
  1. Fruits & Berries -- Burn them into Roasted Fruits, cook them into Fruit Jam, cook those into Fruit Tincture. Sell them for 24000/piece. Profit: 16~19.2x
  2. Root Vegetables -- Burn them into Roasted Root Vegetables, cook them into Vegetable Broth. Sell them for 2500/piece. Profit: 4.7~18.8x
  3. Wood -- Recycle Softwood and Hardwood into Branches. Craft these into Ultra Rare Water Cans. Sell them for 2000/piece. Profit: 10x
  4. Eggs (1) -- Cook them into Boiled Eggs, cook those into Deviled Eggs, cook those into Thousand Year Eggs. Sell them for 10000/piece. Profit: 1.7x
  5. Eggs (2) -- Cook them into Boiled Eggs, cook those into Tea Eggs. Sell them for 4800/piece. Profit: 4.4x
  6. Mixed Greens (1) -- Cook them into Fancy Greens, cook those into Deluxe Greens. Sell them for 3600/piece. Profit: 1.5x
  7. Mixed Greens (2) -- Cook them into Fancy Greens, cook those into Deluxe Greens, cook those into Kimchi. Sell them for 10000/piece. Profit: 2.0x
  8. Nut Flout & Cocoa Beans - Cook them into Cocoa Pancakes. Sell them for 6000/piece. Profit: 2.6x
A few notes to go along with this:
  1. The Profit means the difference between the raw ingredients for the entire recipe, and the selling price at the end. So if a recipe includes essences, the selling price for those essences is factored into the profit margin as well.
  2. Every raw material not mentioned above, doesn't appear to have any recipe that yields a profit. So excess Onions, Flowers, Essences, and Ingots are better sold as-is or kept in storage for when they're needed to fullfill a quest or purchase an item.
  3. It may seem like a waste to recycle Hardwood all the way back into Branches, but I promise it's the most econimic way to get rid of them. Selling Hardwood as-is yields much less, and turning Hardwood into a different variety of Ultra Rare furniture also yields less.
  4. Why Ultra Rare specifically? It has to be Ultra Rare because all lower AND higher tiers will yield less profit.
  5. Why the Watering Can specifically? It doesn't have to be a Watering Can, as there are a few other similar recipes. As long as they require 20 Branches, and can be sold for 2000, that's all that matters.
  6. Recipes 4, 5, 6, and 8 all require extra ingredients, among which are Essences and Salt. This is why I'm listing two options for Eggs and Mixed Greens, so you can pick and choose whichever matches your playstyle & excess inventory best.
Hope this helps you get some more coins to buy those precious decorations. If you prefer not to think about economics too much in a game like this, power to you! You play the game however you like. No one is forcing you to yield maximum profit. It's only a game 🙂
If anyone has found any better yields, please write below in the comments. I'm curious to your responses.

2023.05.29 14:44 Crash_69 What container is more sustainable, Aluminum, glass or plastic? (617 Exajoules and 40 Gigatons CO2)

I was doing a little research today to answer a question posted in another thread. The question was: which single use beverage container is better - glass, aluminum, or plastic. My first first response was kind of flippant and dismissive: None of them.
In the course of the exchange, I decided to try to offer a more helpful explanation with a back-of-the-napkin analysis of the carbon footprint of each type of container. It was a lot more complicated than I expected.
First I tried to estimate how much CO2 is created to produce a single aluminum can. 4 tons of bauxite ore are smelted into two tons of alumina which is further reduced to 1 ton of aluminum. The process requires 64 GJ (gigajoules).
A joule is a metric measure of energy. 4,184 joules (1 Calorie) are required to raise the temperature of one gram of water by one degree Celsius. The equivalent imperial measurement is a British Thermal Unit (BTU) which is the amount of energy required to raise one pound of water by one degree Fahrenheit. A joule is a very small amount of energy; one BTU is equal to 1,055.06 joules. A pound of water is kind of a weird measurement. A gallon of water is 8.33 pounds. 1,055.06 joules/BTU x 8.33 pounds/gallon H2O = 8,788 joules are required to raise the temperature of one gallon of water by one degree Fahrenheit. (this is a really weird number and you won't find it with Google)
For perspective, 1GJ (1 billion joules) is enough energy to raise the temperature of an average sized backyard swimming pool (20,000 gallons) by a little less than 6°F. The energy required to produce a ton of aluminum, 64GJ, is more than enough to bring your pool - and your neighbor's pool - to a boil.
After that, I needed to figure out how much CO2 is produced when generating 64GJ. This is where things get complicated. Some sources of energy produce less CO2 than others, depending on fuel and efficiency. Wind, solar, and hydro produce only small amounts of CO2, but they represent only a small (but growing) fraction of power production. To solve the problem, I decided to find the total global energy production and the total global emissions of CO2 associated with power generation.
617 EJ. 617 Exajoules. 617 x 1018 joules. 617 followed by 18 zeros of energy produced in 2019 associated with power. That is enough energy to raise the temperature of the Mediterranean sea (900,000 cubic miles of water) by 1.5°F. That might be a little hard to imagine. 617EJ is more than enough energy to bring Lake Superior to a boil! Does that blow you away?
Ok, onward. The total CO2 emissions in 2019 associated with power generation was 40 GT. 40 Gigatons. 40 billion tons of carbon dioxide were injected into the atmosphere to produce 617EJ.! What does 40 billion tons of CO2 look like? At standard temperature and pressure 40GT takes up 4,700 cubic miles. I'm not sure how to express that volume any better. I have to add a footnote here though. Gas volumes are really weird. First, there is no such thing as standard temperature and pressure in the context of the atmosphere. Also different kinds of games share space. It's really hard to visualize 40 billion tons of CO2.
Those statistics are mind blowing, but keep in mind that those are the numbers for 2018. Just one year! Also, these numbers are for power generation. They don't include the CO2 associated with transportation. They also don't account for methane leaks from capped wells or CO2 from flare off.
617EJ and 40GT
Oh yeah, almost forgot!...1 ton of aluminum requires 64GJ of energy which generates 4.2 tons of CO2. A typical aluminum can weighs 0.66 oz and you can make 48,000 of them from a ton of aluminum. That means about 3 oz of CO2 are produced for each aluminum can which is smaller than the measurement error. That happens when you use very large numbers...617EJ and 40GT..to estimate very small numbers. The best you can say about the carbon footprint of a single aluminum can is that it is a non-zero amount.
I intended to do similar estimates for glass and plastic containers, but if aluminum produces an immeasurably small amount of CO2, glass and plastic will also be immeasurable.
So the next time you find yourself contemplating the difference of the impacts between single serving containers, understand that the amount of CO2 your body generated in the process is likely higher than any savings you'll get by your selection.
And, instead of worrying about aluminum vs plastic, imagine Lake Superior boiling.
617EJ and 40GT..every year..
Ok, I know your eyes are glazing over right now. Mine were to. In trying to come up with the amount of energy required to produce a ton of aluminum (about 64GJ - more than enough to boil the water in your pool and your neighbor's as well), I found this article. 617 EJ was produced/consumed worldwide in 2019. 617 Exajoules. 617 x 1018 Joules. 617 followed by 18 zeros. Enough energy to boil a billion backyard swimming pools. The Mediterranean sea contains 900000 cubic miles of water (1017 gallons). 617 EJ is enough energy to raise the temperature of the Mediterranean (900,000 cubic miles) 1.5°F! Enough energy to bring Lake Superior (2,900 cubic miles) to a boil! That is just one year of energy production.
Okay, I've taken you this far. I also needed to know how much CO2 was created in the production of a ton of Aluminum (4.2 tons). The global CO2 emissions from power production is 40 GT. 40 Gigatons. Power plants around the world injected 40 billion tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. At standard pressure and temperature, 40 GT occupies about 4,700 cubic miles. This number is kinda weird though because standard temperature and pressure doesn't exist in the atmosphere.
Anyway, an aluminum can is responsible for roughly 3 ounces of atmospheric carbon dioxide. Also, 3 oz is less than the measurement error, so in practical terms the amount of carbon dioxide negligible. Since aluminum requires more energy to produce than glass or plastic, those beverage containers also create a negligible amount of CO2 per unit. If you're worried about the immeasurable difference in CO2 production between your glass and aluminum beverage containers, you have just created more CO2 thinking about it than you are saving.

2023.05.29 14:42 KSAnnihilation PSP Battery Brand Test and Review for OSTENT 1200 mAh and 1400 mAh (AliExpress)

PSP Battery Brand Test and Review for OSTENT 1200 mAh and 1400 mAh (AliExpress)
Brand Name: OSTENT
Marketplace: AliExpress
Capacity: 1200 mAh and 1400 mAh for PSP 2000/3000
Pricing:
(USD) $10.14 per 1200 mAh battery, and $10.98 per 1400 mAh battery.
https://preview.redd.it/rq0jw4tizs2b1.jpg?width=2665&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=a594e21b284f0b75775777dcd1e378f9c0cb77a9
App: PSP Battery Timer
Tested on three PSP 2000 models and one 3000 model.
Test parameters:
CPU Clock: 222Mhz
Backlight Auto Adjust: OFF
Backlight Auto-Off: OFF
Auto-Sleep: OFF
WLAN switch: OFF
Backlight setting: Max.
It seems that I've been duped in the last review. You see, when searching for slim batteries on the OSTENT official store on Ali Express, I found only one listing of unlabeled batteries. These batteries were advertised by OSTENT to last 4 hours, but they do not. In fact after testing I found them to last a pathetic 2 hours. Only recently have I found a listing for 'High Quality Real Capacity' OSTENT slim batteries that actually had the OSTENT label printed on the battery. My last experience with OSTENT left a bad taste in my mouth, but for the sake of finding a reliable battery, I carried on and bought these 'High Quality Real Capacity' ones.
The packaging somehow got even worse than last time, this time there wasnt even the foam wrap around the batteries, the batteries were just in a thin plastic sleeve (that half of the batteries fell out of during shipping) and they were all tumbling against each other in a padded envelope. Miraculously, there doesnt seem to be any major damage dealt to them. Again, if you can, buy these from Amazon instead.
Currently I've tested two 1200 mAh OSTENT batteries, and two 1400 mAh OSTENT batteries.
All Batteries were functional on a basic level. The battery percentage accuracy is decent, it still drops faster when its at a high percentage and drops slowly at the last 20%, but not to the sharp degree of some other brands. Three of the batteries consistently show 100% after being charges, although one would only charge to 99%.
Backlight was at max setting in all tests. Note: The battery percentage might show higher values (10%+) in the test pictures, in this case the device shut off when the battery reached empty, then when turned back on after a while the battery percentage seems to go up a bit for some reason (it ends up going back down to 0 after only a couple of minutes) This seems to happen to me with all PSP batteries, even OEM.

Test 8 - OSTENT 1200 mAh on the black PSP 2000: 5 Hours 25 Minutes
These are the top of the line for unmodded PSP batteries. These OSTENT batteries completely blew any other slim PSP battery brand I've tested out of the water. They lasted so long they almost competed with the fat 1800 and 2200 mAh OSTENT batteries. The 1200 mAh will reach 5 hours, and for less than a dollar more the 1400 mAh can push all the way to 6 hours. There werent any major variations between tests and they performed consistently for the most part, even the battery that only charged to 99%.
Since I only received these recently, long term reliability is not known yet.
Conclusion:
Once again, OSTENT with the false advertising and horrible packaging, but massive performance when it counts. These are the best slim batteries I've tested and it's not even close. Theyre a little pricier than other options but well worth it. Find them on a marketplace like Amazon if possible, and perhaps theyll be packaged more securely. I know I'd planned to test more battery brands in previous reviews, but these are just so good that I find myself satisfied for now. I have a backup in SUNLYTOUR batteries as well if I cant get ahold of them. I'll report on any issues I find using these with time.

2023.05.29 14:36 SpecificTemporary877 History of Axes, Part 9: Fire Emblem Path of Radiance

Welcome back! Today we are leaving the GBA era and entering a new one with Fire Emblem 9, Path of Radiance. How will we see this power shift axes have had in the past 2 games exist in this game, and what aspects will change and stay the same in a game that seems to blend old and new?

Starting off with general gameplay changes, the Weapon Triangle worked the same way, but reverted back to a -+10 Hit penalty/bonus like it was in FE6, rather than the 15 we saw in the previous two games, but the -+1 damage stayed the same. A big change was the mechanics of weapon weight. Constitution was still in the game, but weapon weight was now mitigated with the Strength stat. Each point of Strength would negate one weapon weight. While this was a bit of an annoyance for magic users as they still had to have a bit of Strength to use magic tomes with no penalties, it was very convenient for physical damage dealers since the higher Strength meant lower Speed penalties and higher damage, making it a "win-win" situation. Finally, the 2RN hit system stayed the same, so hit rates were higher than displayed if >51%, or lower if hit rates were displayed <50%.

Returning from its absence after its last appearance in Thracia, units now have both Strength and Magic stats and grow independently of each other, and for the first time, the Magic stat can actually matter for axe users! Strength + (Weapon Might x Effectiveness), with the Effectiveness coefficient going back to 2 like it was in FE7 (aka, doubling Might) instead of 3. Defense was still used for defensive calculations. Strength and Defense could permanently be raised via the Energy Drop and Dracoshield Stat boosters. Certain classes could conditionally boost their Defense via the Knight Ward item. Finally there were the held Band items that would boost certain growths, but they could only be attained on a second playthrough if you have a first playthrough finished and saved.

We didn't really see any new weapons in the axe arsenal in FE9, as there are actually only 3 new axes that were added. On top of that, unlike every other weapon type, there is no S-Rank Axe that is available to the player, as the only one is the Urvan, which we only see in a cutscene once in Chapter 7. Also Axes generally had lower Hit rates like they did in FE6, ranging around the 50-65s on average. The list of axes in FE9 are...
The Iron-Steel-Silver progression is the same; Iron being the weakest but lightest, Steel being heavy but stronger, and Silver being lighter AND stronger than Steel. Based purely on stats, the Silver Axe is actually the best axe in the game due to it having the highest Might of all axes at 16, the second highest Hit at 70%, and a very manageable Weight of 14, which many of the axe wielding units in this game can mitigate w/ virtually no problem. Hand Axes retained their high status even though their stats didn't seem stellar on paper, and that was because of a new mechanic; the Forging system. The Forge allowed for I-S-S and Hand Axes to be forged, allowing you to raise or lower any of its stats in exchange for Gold. Putting a bit of Gold into a Hand Axe to increase just its Hit could make it much more deadly, especially in the hands of someone like Boyd or Titania. This is the first time the Devil Axe is completely unattainable by the player, but is still in the games code. If forced into the game, the backfire effect doesn't work properly and can even cause your character to glitch and be stuck, but only if you have animations on. The Venin Axe retains its trash status as before since it is just a worse Iron Axe with Poison built into it, which isn't a status effect players should worry about. The Hammer is in a bit of a tricky spot since they weigh a lot, are inaccurate, and only have 20 Might when fighting armors, which on higher difficulties where the enemy defenses are higher, can nullify the usefulness the Hammer provides. Same situation with the Poleax but slightly less so since it has a smidge more accuracy, weighs a bit less, and you won't be dealing with as much bulk with mounted units like you will with armors. The Short Axe was a brand new weapon and is meant to be an in-between the Hand Axe and Tomahawk. It is a straight upgrade from the Hand Axe stat wise, but it has less uses and doesn't have the advantage of being Forgeable. The Killer Axe remains as a simple but powerful weapon with its relatively reliable Hit, Weight, and Might, as well as its bonus 30% Crit. The Laguz Axe is a new weapon that deals effective damage against all Laguz enemies. Unless you're dealing with bulky Tigers or are playing on Maniac, it can do some solid work against every type of Laguz enemy you fight. The Bolt Axe is also a brand new weapon and is special since it is the very first magical axe to exist in the entire series. It used the users Magic stat, which wasn't great since most axe units don't have high Magic, but it had 1-2 range and dealt Thunder damage, making it effective against Dragon Laguz. The Brave Axe was still great due to its double-attack effect, even though it is still quite heavy like it was in the GBA games. Finally there is the Tomahawk, the strongest but heaviest ranged axe options. It's a great option for 1-2 range if you have it, but like the Short Axe it suffers from lower uses and non-Forgeability.

Due to the lack of branched promotions and reworks to some classes, the number of axe-wielding classes in FE9 were significantly lower than before. But the aforementioned reworks gave some new strengths to these classes, including something that was present in FE7 but lost in FE8; axe-wielding Paladins. Also every T2 class had a brand new ultimate skill called Occult Skills that can be unlocked if they use an Occult Scroll. The list of axe-wielding classes in FE9 are...
Fighters were like their past incarnations, emphasizing Strength and a bit on Speed and Skill. Warriors took from the latter two stats to emphasize even more on Strength, gained access to Bows (making them arguably the strongest Archers), and got Colossus as an Occult Skill. It was an okay skill, but with a lot of setup required; if the users Con exceeds the enemy's Con, it has a Skill% chance to multiply the user's Strength by 1.25 or 25%. FE9 brought back the FE4/5 trend of having individual cavalier classes for each of the physical weapon types, but instead of having individual promotions, they all promote to Paladin. Paladins have a unique quirk in this game where instead of having preset weapons, you can actually choose their secondary weapon, so it is possible for all of your non-pre-promote Paladins to wield all Axes or Swords, whatever the player prefers. Cavaliers and Paladins are still just as good, if not better, than their FE counterparts. They are good all-rounders, can provide mounted utility such as rescuing, and can move fast. I forgot to mention this in previous entries, but most mounted and/or flying units have an ability called Canto, which allows them to use up their remaining movement after taking an action (what action that is depends on the game), and is a big asset as to why they are so useful. The Paladins Occult Skill is Sol, which just restores HP equal to damage dealt on activation. Wyvern Riders continued to use Lances and had their same boons in Strength and Defense like in the GBA era, but their promotion to Wyvern Lord got a new change; instead of getting Swords, they could now use Axes. This change was actually very beneficial since it allowed them to use 1-2 range axes in addition to their 1-2 range spears, and the high Might of axes complemented their high Strength. And with Forging, being inaccurate is no longer really an issue (to a degree). Their Occult Skill is Stun, which when procced on a (Skill/2)% chance, locked up the enemy's movement (but not their other actions) for 2 turns. This wasn't really a good skill, had far too niche of a use. The final axe class was the Berserker, and they worked the same way as they did before, as they were high Strength glass cannons that can crit a lot due to their innate Crit bonuses. Their Occult Skill was also Colossus.

Onto the enemy-exclusive classes, there is only one that actually uses axes. The Bandit is the classic ruffian/thug axe-wielding class and worked/appeared the same way they have for the past 8 games. Finally there is the King Daein class, which is the class exclusive to the final boss Ashnard, and is sort of like a beefed up version of the Wyvern Lord class, but uses Swords and Axes instead of Lances and Axes. The funny thing is that in the boss fight, he only uses his signature sword Gurgurant and doesn't use axes at all. But if you use Ashnard in the Trial Maps, you can equip him with an axe there. The King Daein class also doesn't come with any Occult Skill.

The axe user roster in FE9, while it is smaller than recent games (excluding Trial characters), more than makes up for it in quality as many of the characters in this list are either considered to be good, really good, or lauded to be some of the best characters in the game. The other good thing is that the player will get a lot of these good units in the early-to-midgame, allowing them to use these units more and get more out of them. The axe users in FE9 are...


To round things off, there are 9 items that affect axe users in FE9. There are the permanent stat boosters of the Energy Drop and Dracoshield, which boost Strength and Defense by +2 respectively. The Arms Scroll is a special stat booster that raises weapon rank by one level. All classes in this game use Master Seals to promote, so no more individual promo items. Then there are the held accessories; the famous Knight Ward and all of the second-playthrough Bands that affect growths. The ones that affect Strength and/or Defense growths are the Soldier, Fighter, Knight, and Wyvern Bands.

FE9 was a great continuation of the axe being such a good weapon type, especially with the forge mechanic, the changes to weapon weight mitigation, and the unit quality of all potential axe users being so good. There isn't really much else to say besides that FE9 was very kind to axe users, arguably almost to the same degree that Thracia was. But will we see this great reign continue as we venture into the later years of Tellius?

Thank you so much for reading this! I think I'm going to be taking my time with these so that I can get you guys some good content, I've been going through a lot but I don't want my work to suffer because of it. Comments and critiques are always welcome, and have an amazing day!

Background

Just turned 50 this year (50M) and started running (again) in Oct’22 from a base of zero exercise for the past five years (excepting having 3 small boys (5,7,&9) and the hustle of daily life, family walks, family activities etc. In 2014 I did a couch25k and between 2014-2017 started to run commute into work averaging about 10km per week over this period - (2014 - 900km; 2015 - 500km; 2016 - 650km; 2017 (jan-aug) - 500km). This culminated in a half-marathon race (Rock n Roll Dublin) in 2017 for which I didn’t follow a training plan but did a few longer runs of 13k(ish) and finished in c. 1:48 (ran out of steam at c.19k and had to run/walk a couple of times to finish).
Before 2014 - there was no exercise/running/training/gym - I was relatively ‘active’ but no sports/activities to note.
In October last year (‘22), I decided to go for a run to see how it felt and surprised myself by running 7km @ 6:10/km pace. I enjoyed it, and decided to get back running with a vague aspiration to complete a marathon in my 50th year….

Training

… so I started training. Decided in November to book a bib in the Edinburgh marathon, figuring that 7 months should give me a decent enough training block. Avg went from 50km/week to 100km/week over this period.
Month Distance Avg Pace
Nov 216km 6:16/km
Dec 321km 6:07/km
Jan 284km 5:26/km
Feb 237km 5:25/km
Mar 291km 5:19km
Apr 412km 5:07/km
May 305km 5:00/km
Didn’t follow a specific plan (per se), generally ran 5 or 6 days a week with one long run (5:00/km to 5:30/km), one medium/tempo type run (4:40/km to 5:00/km), three easy runs (5:20/km) and a sprinkling of ParkRuns.
I had no (observable) issues in stepping up the mileage over this period, two small injury niggles,one in Nov and one in Feb, and I rested with no reoccurrence of either.
I self-diagnosed regularly occurring foot pain as a Mortons Neuroma (flared up after c.9km and could be run through - but painful) and went through a variety of shoe types to lessen the flare-ups. Settled on Altra’s and roomy footbox, which worked for me.
Parkrun (5k) times went from 25:26 (Oct’22) to 19:06 (May’22) over this period.
Other notable times -
10k times - avg sub-45mins on tempo/fast runs
Half-marathons - (did over 20 runs at this distance over the 7 months) ran x2 sub 1:40 and x1 sub 1:34 during the block (not races, just fast/tempo runs)
In Mar&Apr’23 I completed x5 long runs >30km (longest @33km) and a further x2 (27km & 29km) as part of the build up.
I trained with SIS gels and a water bottle filled with Tailwind mix during the long-runs and they settled ok, a little queasy but ok (I did all other runs (<27km) without nutrition or water)
The <1:35 half-marathon was the last fast/long run before the start of the taper (from 100km to 80km (wk1) to 55km (wk2) to 25km (wk3)).

Plan & Pre-race

All marathon time predictors (runalyze; metathon; crplots) had me at a 3:10 to 3:12 marathon time based on my strava logs - I felt this was optimistic (4:34/km) as I had a tendency to drift (pace & heartrate) on longer runs. Based on the half-marathon times in the training block I felt i could sustain close to that pace for maybe 30km - but >40km would be a push - so settled on the following plan for race day:
First 16km (10 miles) at 4:40/km, next 16km (10miles) at 4:50/km, last 10km to keep legs moving and hold-on to the finish. Goal A - was to run a sub 3:25.
Pre-race prep was unremarkable - flew to Scotland (from Dublin) on Friday evening - ate well Fri/Sat (lots of pasta, steak, bread) slept ok . Collected bib Saturday morning, pottered around the city for a couple of hours , rested the rest of the day.
Race day morning, grabbed a banana, coffee, croissant - had 500ml of tailwind c. 2 hours before start - greased myself up (sunscreen & anti-chafe), bathroom, checked bag, warmed-up (stretches/gentle jog). Fuelling plan for the race was a gel every 6km topped-up with Tailwind which I carried in a hand-held bottle.
Weather was warm and overcast at the start (10am)

Race

Start was largely downhill for the first 8km, and I tried to keep the pace under control. Legs felt strong and were turning-over well. Despite best efforts, the combination of the downhill, first marathon excitement, over-confidence, other runners pace, me being an idiot, had the first 8km in c.4:35/km pace - which was faster than intended, but not wildly so. The course then hit the sea front and the breeze helped to take the edge off the pace and I settled into the target pace of 4:40/km (-ish) for the next 8km.
Took the gels at 6km, 12km and 18km and sipped from the hand-held bottle (tailwind) throughout. I grabbed a few gulps from the on-course water as I ran-by. Weather started to warm-up as the sun broke through the clouds.
Hit 16km feeling good - slightly ahead of target pace and the race-plan was to run the second 16km at an avg 4:50/km so I eased off a little to adjust to plan. Hit half marathon in 1:38ish which was ahead of plan, but I felt ok, knew I had completed a 1:34 half a few weeks back and the race-strategy was to target 4:50/km from 16k to 32k.
Then things changed at around 23/24k mark - legs started to lose some power which came as a surprise, I also started to feel a little nauseous. I skipped taking the planned gel at 24k as i felt i would be ill if i forced it down.
At 25k I just couldn’t hold a sub5:00/km pace at all. I recognised that I was in trouble and it was barely half-way through. Resolved to move to my long-run pace for the training block at 5:20/km and hoped this could see me through to the end. Took a gel at 30k and temperatures were getting warmer. Despite all the difficulties I hit 30k in 2:24 (avg. 4:50km) but i was weakening and getting worried.
When I reached 32k in the marathon I knew I was fucked, pace had slipped to 6:00/km, sun was beating down, other runners were struggling, and I started negotiating with myself to just. keep. running.
By 35k I had to start run/walking as my legs had completely gone. I was gutted but there was nothing left in the tank. Walking through the two water stations I could actually drink the bottles of water and was surprised at how thirsty/dehydrated I was. Pace times dropped off as I continued to run/walk for the next 5k. Nearing the end I gave it everything I had to run the final 2k.
Crossed the finish in 3:43

Post-Race

Disappointed I couldn't run the whole 42k but recognise sub 3:45 is an achievement for a 50year old (couch to marathon in 7 months).
Hard to rationalise what went wrong here - initial thoughts:
1). Over-fatigued / over-trained - despite feeling strong during training this was not actually the case - taper ineffective (??)
2). Target pace too aggressive - over-confident/ego/greedy - did not respect the distance - went out too fast
3). Fuelling/hydration was wrong - sweated too much -relied on tailwind - did not take enough water on-course - skipped gel at 24k
probably a combination of all of the above factors.....

Next Steps

i) Rest for a week ii) Dublin marathon at the end of Oct iii) Start structured plan Pfitz. 18/55 or 18/70

2023.05.29 14:31 BlueberryBishop [LFA] Merrick Baxter: the Mortal-Passing, Early-days Vampire of the Anarchs

The Setting is Old-World Vampire: The Masquerade
(Story) Merrick Baxter was just a modern punk living in Los Angeles, when he got "mugged" 7 months ago in a construction site, and woke up with fangs. He was "adopted" by a small subsect of Anarchs with a brutalist mindset, taught how to hunt, and promptly sent to Phoenix as brute muscle in response to a Call-to-Arms. He is often confused by the nature of his new Unlife, and his curiosity has nearly sent him to a second grave multiple times.
(Appearance) Merrick is a white guy in his early 20's, standing at 5'10" and a low-bulk musculature. He lacks the corpse-like paleness common to vampires, possessing a pinker complexion. His brown hair cut just long enough for bedhead to take effect.
His usual outfit is a sleeveless hoodie, gray jeans, Rubber-ducky yellow boots, and 3 silver rings. When dealing with humans, Merrick hides his identity behind a NATO-standard gas mask.
His main armaments are his fists, which glow red and really sting when he decides that super-strength just doesn't hurt enough. For situations where the opposition is best not approached, he carries an heirloom Mosin Nagant rifle.

2023.05.29 14:26 sai_gamer Is poison better than Mryu

Yesterday I was watching my friend play SFD and when comparing poison +20 3/6 with mryu +20 3/6, poison was just a better carry at levels 181 to 190 in thunder tower and had an edge over mryu. In terms on meta thunder team, why is mryu considered as the best carry along with blanka,ehonda and elena and not poison?

2023.05.29 14:24 VercioKing *CONTAINS AEW SPOILERS* Post a Forbidden Door 2023 card you would love to see

Okay, so it's fantasy booking time. We're on that time of the year again, where our imaginations travel and injuries hit. In the meantime, since we're almost in time for Dominion and AEW's major stories will be on hold for a while I thought of interrogating this reddit for having an idea of your Forbidden Door 2 card.
There's no rule in it: you can book MJF losing to Bolting Oleg if you want. The only thing is, try to explain it and to give it a sense, so it gets funnier than the average "oh, I want Okada vs Omega V because Meltzer is going to give it 8 stars and three quarters".

Pay attention, from here I will assume all the readers know it's spoiler territory, so PLEASE, DO NOT READ ANY FURTHER UNLESS YOU ALREADY WATCHED AEW DOUBLE OR NOTHING 2023 OR YOU DO CARE ABOUT BEING SPOILER-FREE ALL ELITE WRESTLING

Let's begin!
Opening Match: AEW World Championship - Maxwell Jacob Friedman (champion) vs "The King" Minoru Suzuki (challenger)
So, an AEW World Title match as an opener? You see, the thing I love the most about MJF is not the character, nor the wrestling abilities. It's his persona and the modernity he brings that makes me love the man. In his Media Scrum interview, he stated "NJPW is an indy". His persona clearly does not want to do the PPV, and so I want to give him someone who, since Inoki's death, is in 本体 (Hontai, NJPW Main Unit). And what a better way for the Toronto crowd to get in the mood, than give them singing 風になれ (kazeninare) for starters? Suzuki can work for 15-20 minutes once in a while now, however, I want this to be a 5 minutes thing where Max cheats his way to the win.

2nd match: CHAOS (BISHAMON, Rocky Romero and Orange Cassidy) vs. BULLET CLUB (David Finlay, Clark Connors, KENTA & Chase Owens)
During the pandemic era, we had OC and Best Friends introduced in CHAOS by Rocky Romero. And with Shibata seamingly leaving LA Dojo and CC beating Young Lions and LA Dojo alumnis all around, there are two interesting matchups for this shakeup: azucar and 100 Proof, but most importantly Finlay and OC. They are both establishing themselves as fighters, but with two different attitudes. Having an exchange there would be incredible. At the end, BISHAMON win with Chase looking at the light.

3rd match: Champion vs Champion - Willow Nightingale (NJPW Strong Women's Champion) vs Toni Storm (AEW World's Women Champion)
The King of Sports introduced two female's titles among their collection. Given the fact STARDOM exists, given the fact for now I do not see a merger between the BUSHIROAD promotions, I also do not see Gedo wanting to give up on the idea that this is a NJPW only event. So, to me these titles are for US territory and for Special matches involving megastars during special events. I do not necessarily agree with this, but also the G1 Climax and the IWGP Heavweight titles were "special attractions". When it comes to this match, with Jamie in the box for a while, this is going to be another piece of the Outcasts vs. Homegrowns feud. Toni would win, setting up for another match for the STRONG title somewhere in the future.

4th match: Owen Hart Cup Finals - "Super Liger" Chris Jericho vs Hiromu Takahashi
Ok, when I thought of this match I said to myself that Y2J has to be in because he's one of the main pieces of the AEW puzzle, so I really do not see special events without him. So I booked a filler, something to get rid in case something cooler pops into my mind. Then I remembered Forbidden Door 2 is going to take place in Canada, so this became a must. Then I read Tony's idea to have Liger's involvement in the Cup. So this, from being an afterthought, has become a priority. Since AEW started, Jericho portrayed all his persona: he did the list, Lionheart, the Painmaker, the Ocho. How cool would it be to see Hiromu, who is beating all Liger's records, surpassing Super Liger?

5th match: IWGP World Heavyweight Championship - SANADA (champion) vs Darby Allin (challenger)
I will start by saying that I'm not that confident that we'll see this match happening. If Yota Tsugi is half as good as the guy I've see in RevPro, we have the reincarnation of Kenta Kobashi (I know, it's very tempting to rage at this, but their physical structure seems identical). So I want to be wrong. But picture this: SANADA's defenses are against a junior (although he's an iconic junior) and a graduating Young Lion. So somehow we have to establish him as a force, or we're having another transitional champion that is going to get racked by Okada for the next Wrestle Kingdom.
Let's take a step back and have a gemba walk on wrestling in 2023. To me, it has been the best year in wrestling in YEARS. We had NJPWxNOAH, All Together, two edition of All Star Juniors, Multiverse United, an awesome Wrestlemania Weekend for the US indies (I heard good things about WWE, but I don't watch it since more than a decade). We had Nakamura going back to Japan and Naito retiring Mutoh. You see where I'm going with this?
With Sting retiring and Muta gone I would love to see this match, with them seconding their guys. At the end, Darby takes the L with some MJF thing happening (now more than ever I'm convinced that Darby is dethroning Maxwell somewhere in the future).

6th match: NJPW STRONG Television Championship - Zack Sabre Jr. (champion) vs "The American Dragon" Bryan Danielson Wheeler Yuta (challenger)
As an Italian from Naples, all I know is that when it comes to superstition, neapolitans are only second to the Chinese. So read the name you want, I'm not going to name Daniel Bryan in in this match. Let's say THE Forbidden Door dream match becomes a meme and we see Yuta trying to survive 15 minutes with Zack in the ring. Then, if the name in the strikesthrough is the correct one...

7th match: IWGP Women's Championship - Mayu Iwatani (champion) vs Dr. Britt Baker, DMD (challenger)
Dream match #7. I'm going to be hermetic with this. In my mind, this is the shocker of the night, with Britt Baker winning and holding "hostage" of the title in America and setting up Giulia vs Britt at WK next year. WOW.

8th match: NEVER Six Men Openweight Championship - Blackpool Combat Club (champions) & Shota Umino vs The Elite (El Phantasmo and The Young Bucks) (challengers)
Last year's FD saw great matches with an interesting card. We will never see it, but we expected the emancipation of Hiku Leo in his match with the BULLET CLUB. We received another match, with ELP "replacing" spiritually Kenny Omega. ELP and the Bucks have an almost unexplicable chemistry. ELP is half Marty Scurll, half Kenny Omega, and fits perfectly to the mold of a tag team who is as over the top as ELP is and can do comedy wrestling as well as fast-pacing action or storyline-driven wrestling.
While I was writing it, I changed the champions. Why? Because Kenny said he has one or two friends to call up for support. One is Ibushi, and we'll seeing him at Blood and Guts. The other is none other than ELP.
At first, this was suppose to have the current ones (Okada, Tanahashi and Ishii) in the match and something else planned for Mox. In my head booking, I would have had Tanahashi winning on NJPW STRONG Resurgence but that derailed. Anyways, BCC and Shota retains here, setting up El Phantasmo vs Shooter for G1.
Blackpool retains.

9th match: AEW World Tag Team, NJPW STRONG Tag Team & IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Championships - WINNER TAKES ALL - BULLET CLUB Gold (Juice Robinson & Jay White) vs House of Torture
I am spending a few words here. We're setting up FTR vs. Juice/Jay in AEW. So, say goodbye to Aussie Open vs FTR 2 in NJPW. Hello, Bullet Club Civil War. We've been waiting one since Tama Tonga said "Who the f\ck is the Elite. huh?*" to Kenny and I guess time and place coincide now. It's time to have Jay winning everything, then having a megabrawl among all the members of BC.

10th match: Kazuchika Okada vs Hiroshi Tanahashi
Semi main-event. D*ckhead Okada does not care about Forbidden Door nor AEW. He just cares about being the best wrestler of all times and pushing wrestling to the next level. He did it by creating a gimmick-match only title, he did it by saying he wanted to be the Six Men Titles to be like a World Cup, failing again. At the change of the guard, Okada says to Tanahashi that it's time for a change. After the fall between Ishii and Tanahashi at Dominion, Okada says this is make it or break it for CHAOS. If he wins, Tanahashi must join CHAOS. If Okada loses, CHAOS must disband.

Main Event: IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship - Kenny Omega (champion) vs Will Ospreay (challenger)
Out of all the matches I do not want to happen, this is at the top of my list. I want Archer to win, my entire plans to change, keeping this dream that started a WK17 as long as I can. It is probably because my dad got diagnosed with cancer and I want stability in my life. I do not want things to end.
However, Kenny never had an "high rate" match in his home turf and it is time time for one. So LFG! Winner? Us.

This concludes my silly stream of consciousness, I hope you had fun reading this! What is your dream card for the most speculated PPV of the year?

2023.05.29 14:23 hothcanada In Loving Memory of Pooh 2003-04-02 - 2023-04-18


A memorial/ eulogy for the very best, most loved & cherished friend that I've had in this lifetime, "Pookin".
Pooh was born during the first week of April in 2003.He joined our family in the 3rd week of his life when my younger brothers' teenage girlfriend of the time brought him home. We always celebrated his birthday on April 2nd.
Pooh's favorite thing in life was being outside during the short, non-winter period here in perennially frigid central Canada that usually lasts from the beginning of May until early October. He loved to roam & explore the 5 acres of rural land on the family farm we call home. He especially enjoyed smelling the summer vegetation, laying under the trees in the yard & having an occasional bite of grass.
For all but the first 8 months of his life, wherever Pooh went, he was faithfully accompanied by his life companion & soul-mate, "Little". They were an inseparable pair.
Pooh was never interested in catching mice, instead he preferred to come inside and enjoy a plate of chicken pate when he got hungry. He was a gentle soul.
Throughout the first 15 years of his life, Pooh was a thick, robust, lengthy & athletic guy that never once fell sick.In the final months of 2018 this changed.After dropping an alarming amount of weight in a short period of time, he was diagnosed with the deadly disease, hyperthyroidism. In December 2018-January 2019, we almost lost him.Pooh recovered halfway after being placed on daily medication which he required for the remainder of his life.The life expectancy for medicated cats with this disease is 2-4 years.
From the final quarter of 2018 until only 6 weeks ago, Pooh started each & every day of my life off by pushing on my bedroom door & walking up to the side of my bed, usually at sunrise, between 5-7am. He never said anything, he would simply sit there & stare at me until I either got out of bed or acknowledged him with a good morning, pat on the head.
For the 3/4 of his life that he was healthy, Pooh ate 2 or 3 times per day.After contracting hyperthyroidism, he required 8-12 meals daily just to stay alive.
Between the end of January 2019 & the last days of March 2023, Pooh had two more condition related episodes that required hospitalization, one in the summer of 2019 and then again in the spring of 2020. During the second of those, the vet recommended putting him down.Pooh & I disagreed with that suggestion. Instead, we went home, toughed it out & went on to experience three more summers & nearly three years of happy, major incident-free living. Plenty of chicken included.
Shortly before sunrise on the morning of April 18th 2023, Pooh passed away naturally at home in the company of his loved ones.He never gave up on life & we never gave up on him.
Thank-you Pookin for being the shining light of our lives for the past 20 years.Little & I miss you beyond words & we will never forget you.Nothing & no one has ever meant more to me than the two of you & the time we had together.

2023.05.29 14:21 No_Capital7502 Hot take: one piece choreography isn't horrible

I see a lot of people complaining about one piece choreography being horrible, and as a manga reader i don't feel the choreography is bad, but rather toei makes it look bad.
I don't think i have to explain how badly toei fucks up their animation, there are over a million rants already explaining this, they recently had a polemic over reusing animation,even when it has budget and the animation is top tier the combats feel extremelly slow,they somehow turn a battle that lasts over a single episode into a 20 minute battle, and the worse part is that none of the things i've just mentioned are new,they've always been like these
But i feel like this has severely fucked up people perception of one piece choreography, comparing some op official animation vs fan animations is the best way you get to see this.
to put some examples, here's a stickman animation of luffy vs katakuri, here's the official thing, notice how the fight is extremelly fluid, and the choreography is enjoyable
here's a fan animation of the kaido vs luffy, here's the official thing, notice how while the original has way too many lights and effects, and again feels extremelly slow, the fan animation is dynamic and fast
here's zoro defeating king in a fan animation,here's the official thing the official animation is clearly superior when it comes to animation quality, is one of the best animated scenes in the entire 2023, but the fanimation being shorter makes it way more entertaining to watch
To go further (manga spoilers above)
here's>! a luffy gear 5 vs kaido animation!<, it's literally drawn in fucking picsart, but is still has a great choreography
here's a luffy vs lucci round 2 animation, it has become in one of the greatest and most famous one piece fanimations, it's clearly enjoyable and has great choreography

2023.05.29 14:19 RedditIsForSports "Buy When There's Blood in the Streets": A Michael Harris II Story

There's a saying in investing: "The time to buy is when there's blood in the streets." And at this point, you'd be excused for mistaking the red in Michael Harris's Braves jersey for blood.
He was a 3rd round pick in real life in 2019 and took the league by storm last season. He went 75/19/64/20/.297 in just 441 plate appearances, which is a 600-plate appearance pace of 102/26/87/27/.297. Only Adolis, Tucker, Semien and Julio went 25/25 last season (Julio did it in just 560 PAs!). Adolis, Tucker and Semien all hit .257 or less while Harris hit close to .300 and he regularly batted around that average in the minors so he appears to a plus in batting average where other 25/25 players fall short.
This led to Harris having an ADP of 31. That's expensive. He was viewed as a potential bust during drafts by many given that they didn't believe in his power with a 22.9% HFB. That's Kyle ScwarbeAustin Riley power. People were also concerned about his relatively high K rate (24.3%) compared to his low BB rate (4.8%)
And Harris doubters have been claiming victory given that he has been BAD this season. His 600-plate appearance pace is just 64/11/42/27/.180 (this is his "Blood In The Street" rate of "BITS" rate). If you go into the Daily Threads here, you'll see the blood in the streets.
But that's exactly why we should finally buy. You can buy him for almost anything.
First, let's talk about mindset. Part of the reason people are so upset with Harris was his ADP but that's not his fault. It's not his fault managers drafted him too highly. If his ADP was 100, the hatred would be much less. The truth is that his ADP is a sunk cost and irrelevant to his ROS production. Whether his ADP was #1 or #1,000, it doesn't change his ROS of production. Just forget that because it's irrelevant to his production.
One of the biggest complaints about Harris was his plate discipline and it was fair. A BB/K of .20 last season leaves a lot to be desired. You need to be extremely fast or extremely powerful or a strong combination of both to be successful with such a low rate (think a Mondesi/Witt/ Adolis kind of guy). But Harris has the speed for it. Even now, his BITS pace for 27 SB's. That would have been 7th most last year (tied with Trea). And he's not a zero in power (which we'll discuss later). But he's actually addressed this BB and K issue. His walk rate is up to 8.0% from 4.8% and his strikeout rate is down to 22.1% from 24.3%. His BB/K ratio is now .36... not bad at all. That BB% is actually average and his K% is only below average, not poor or awful. These rates can certainly be overcome for a player with Harris's talent. And remember, we’re seeing this improvement despite the BITS situation. Improvement to your BB and K rates isn't the sign of a lost cause.
Is his improvement shocking? No. He regularly averaged above 8% BB% ratio and a reasonable K rate in the minors. He's also just 22 now. His best work is likely ahead of him. And it's not shocking to see a player improve in the second major league season.
So one of the two complaints has been mostly resolved. That just leaves his power.
I'm not here to say he's going to regain his 26-HR power. He could develop more power since again, he's just 22, but he's currently not a 26 HR guy. But his current 7.4% HFB is pretty low.
He has mid-teens power based on the following:
He's not nothing in power. But who cares, right? He still sucks, right? Well, not for long.
The first thing that jumps out at you is his .216 BABIP. His career norm is around .330. And with his speed, a higher than average BABIP is to be expected. We should see a ton of gains here.
People complain he bats 9th but he batted 9th last season. Batting 9th might cost him an PA sometimes but he plays for the 4th highest scoring team in baseball, something that will get you more PA than playing for CLE or OAK and make those PAs more valuable. Batting 9th also allows him to bat in front of the best hitter in the entire sport. I'll take that batting spot over anywhere a guy like Vinnie P, for example.
Despite his struggles, he's still maintained his speed. His BITS stolen base pace is still 27. That's a plus category even if he never improves.
So why buy him right now? He hit a HR and stole base this weekend going 4/1/2/1/.333/.500 in three games. And he made this great defense play. People underrate how much the field impacts hitting. I mean, just look at Jazz's production this season while struggling to learn a new position. Harris is building momentum. Don't forget he was hurt early in the season. Sometimes it takes time to get going early in the season and sometimes it takes time to get going coming off an injury - he's doing both at once at age 22.
In summary:
He's going to be a plus in runs, SB and AVG while being average in HR and RBI. And you can get him for basically nothing. The risk/reward here is blatantly obvious!
As outlined above, there's real reasons to buy, not feelings. But if you ask me my feelings, my feelings are simple: Buying Harris now is a league winning move.
