2023.06.01 17:39 canthony What does winning with AI look like?
Posting here because I think that there are a lot of AI optimists in this subreddit.
I'm having trouble actually visualizing the scenario where AI goes well. The scenarios where things go badly as fairly well known, and they play out fairly easily in my head. Some that I can think of:
- Uncontrolled recursive self improvement, resulting in standard AI extinction event.
- Uncontrolled recursive self improvement, resulting in catastrophic war against ASI.
- Near term AIs exacerbate declining world stability, leading to nuclear war.
- Singular entity obtains ASI, leading to war against that entity.
- Singular entity obtains ASI, leading to aggressive takeover attempt by that entity.
- AI leads to complete disempowerment of humanity
But what exactly are the scenarios with positive outcomes? Many people will a low probability of doom believe that everything will just be business as usual; that AI will result in a slight change in GDP and nothing more. I don't think the people on this sub believe that.
So what does happen? What does the future look like?
One such scenario is the hypothesized controlled recursive self improvement. I think this is the scenario that most singularity people have been hoping for, but it's notable that this is still an AI takeover scenario. A "friendly takeover" by a benevolent AI "god" would look very similar to a hostile one, and thus it's difficult to let such a scenario play out, because it would involve complacency.
Can anyone paint this scenario or any other successful one in clear way that doesn't have a Step 2: ????? Step 3: Profit format?
I think this would be a useful contribution to the conversation. Particularly interested in hearing from people with forecasting or storytelling skills.

2023.06.01 17:39 COSMlCFREAK Should I pay off some of my mothers credit card debt?
Some background: I’m currently 20 years old working on a STEM degree + planning on pursuing nursing or epidemiology. I volunteer at a hospital but I don’t work. I have a scholarship that is pretty much my “income”. I currently have a little under $12k in my bank account which comes from my scholarships/ jobs I had in high school. It’s not much, but it helps with groceries and bills.
I live with my mum and my brother(21M). My brother doesn’t work and isn’t doing well in school. He pretty much freeloads off me and my mum. My mum makes ~$2000/ month at work and gets survivors benefits at $1800/ month. HCOL. Our rent and bills are give or take $1600. My mother refuses to downsize our apartment.
This month my mum bought a car off her coworker for ~$2000, which has strained us a lot.
I always pay my mothers credit card bills for her because she’s bad with computers and ive seen the numbers go up for the most part. She also has had to pay out of pocket for ongoing medical procedures which has made her debt go up.
Here is the breakdown:
Credit Card 1: ~$9,000 (the main one she uses, expires this year) This is my biggest concern.
Credit Card 2: ~$1500 (she doesn’t touch this card) Department Store Card 1: ~$540 (not used anymore) Department Store Card 2: ~$1,640 (also not used anymore)
She usually pays $100/ month per card but because of the car she only did minimum payment this month. She has been paying Credit Card 1 for as long as I can remember… i remember writing down cheques for her in High School.
The thing is she has medical procedures coming up and we don’t know how much insurance will cover. Her (new) insurance deductible is $350 so I’m assuming that’s what she will be paying. We are also waiting for an ER bill (probably $100 with insurance).
She has less than $5k in her bank right now. Im hoping to get a job next semester to help, but I also want to focus on my classes (I suck at time management). I have about $7500 that will come in via scholarship refunds in the fall and another $6000 in the spring. I want to use some of this money to pay off her debt while still having enough for groceries, bills, and savings.
I don’t have any credit cards myself, but I feel partially responsible for my mums debt as she sometimes buys me things, and I use it to pay for groceries sometimes. I also bought a laptop 2 years ago, I paid $890 and my mum used her card to pay $510 and she said i didn’t have to pay her back.
I suck at financial stuff so I just want to know how I should approach this. I want the debt gone because my mum is always stressing about it and it also effects our relationship.

2023.06.01 17:39 PinkWhisker I'm ruining everything and everyone around me
I cant do it anymore. I keep making scenes and know I'm not well. It will be at least 2 weeks before I can see the psychiatrist for the first time after some shit went down. I don't know what I'll do until then. I think I need some pills or something and that's the only way for me to survive. I can't heal. I'm fucked up. I feel so bad for just existing. I shouldnt exist. I need to fucking die. Why does everyone keep telling me i shouldn't because they feel like they have to when it's so fucking obvious that I shouldn't. Fuck it. It's so stupid. I hate me. I can't do it anymore. I need to end it. I just know im not well.

2023.06.01 17:39 Ok_Seaweed_9452 The most frustrating parts about the Celtics this season
- Udoka departure. players and assistants trusted him and expecting him to lead us to the title.
- the bad timing means there is no good candidate available at the moment so they went to promote Joe
- Some assistants are unhappy with the decision and left Celtics mid season
- Robert Williams was rushed back to play with the Celtics when we clearly does not need his presence at that moment, and clearly he isn't himself through the season.
- Grant Williams regressed and Got DNPed on the 2nd half of the season, tho he eventually return back to the rotation.
- Malcolm Brogdon was amazing all season than got injured in the Eastern Conference Final. Talk about timing
- JT can look like the best player in the nba one night, and then disappear and shows up again . He was healthy all season until game 7 , very unlucky.
- JB still doesn't have the good handle
- Joe system create a divide for some players that still believe in defense over offense
- Al horford elite shooting disappears completely after Atlanta series.
i may miss some things here and there but guess what? They are one win away to come back ton the Final and have very good chance to win title. If one of these thing does not happen we may talk different story. But its not all doom! Derick White has emerged and may become our third Star. Coaching can also be addressed in postseason. JT and JB still about to enter their prime and improve more. Lets run it back one more time.

2023.06.01 17:39 pink_pelican Stupid to stay at 1.0?
Hi all, I've been on Wegovy for 3 months with moderate but definitely uncomfortable side effects. I'm currently on the 1.0 and which has been the hardest dose so far. I thinking of asking my provider to stay at the 1.0 for another month instead of moving to the 1.7. But, we all know the shortage problems....
is it silly to try and stay on the 1.0 knowing it will be difficult to obtain? I had to drive 30 mins from house to find my last pack.
What's been the general experience on 1.7? I feel like everything I read on here is that's when it gets bad.

2023.06.01 17:38 funkadelicbreakfast Previous finger injuries
| || |
I’m a very new climber and have so far found myself to be using more leg and foot work as opposed to hands and fingers although I know upon harder routes that may be subject to change. My hands are pretty bad - I’ve broken all fingers but 3, hardware in both hands, and most notably my pinky and ring finger on the left side are permanently crooked. The pinky really concerns me. It’s holding on by only half a knuckle and gets caught on things day to day, if I even move it to fast I sometimes need to buddy tape it to the ring finger due to the pain it can cause. My drs have stated that arthritis will be a problem for me in the future (29 now) and they MAY be able to do surgery on the fingers (ring finger has hardware in it from previous surgery 17 years ago) but I find myself apprehensive about anyone touching my fingers at all. They are very weak fingers, obviously, I mostly end up protecting them from everything. My climbing partner says slow strength training will be my key and to go forward with surgery on the off season. I’m debating surgery on the ring finger and amputation of the pinky for ease and fear or it becoming more harmed. I know that’s probably overkill but I’ve lived with the pain for 17 years and am feeling pretty done with it. Does anyone else climb with notably bad fingers? I saw a post where the main idea was “pinkies can get caught” and my stomach churned at the thought. submitted by funkadelicbreakfast to climbing [link] [comments]
2023.06.01 17:38 LifeRip9512 Fibroids? What next?
TLDR: I’m newly diagnosed with fibroids and can’t see my OB for a week. In pain and bleeding - do I just wait it out? What’s treatment likely going to look like?
I’ve (28) always had bad periods since I was young (started at 10) - lots of heavy bleeding, debilitating cramps, nausea vomiting, etc. and was put on birth control pretty quickly to keep me in check.
I get migraines with aura so had to come off the combo pill a few years ago.
All was well on the mini pill for the most part, but the past month or so I’ve had what I thought was breakthrough bleeding. I woke up yesterday in excruciating pain and my whole pelvic area was swollen.
Went to the ER per direction from my OB and was diagnosed with fibroids. They saw at least 2 small ones and sent me home with Motrin and told me to follow up with my OB.
My OB can’t see me until next Wednesday. What do I do in the meantime? I’m still bleeding, in pain and swollen. Do I just wait it out?
Also what does treatment look like? I wasn’t really given any guidance and just did some high level searches on google.

2023.06.01 17:38 DillonFromSomewhere Resignation Letter in Academic Essay Format
I know quitting your job as a cook usually simply comes with two weeks notice or a ragequit walkout, but for eleven months I worked at a new franchise that had such potential which was being squandered by the incompetence of upper management. I present the nearly 6000 word thesis I turned in on my last day. Locations and names have been changed to cartoon references. Brackets represent ambiguous information in place of specific details.
Opening in [Month/Year], Krusty Krab (KK) Bikini Bottom is on its 4th kitchen manager in less than a year. Krusty Krab O-Town has recently let go its inaugural kitchen manager and sous chef. Almost no member of the Bikini Bottom opening management team remains employed by KK. There is a pattern developing where one must question both the choice of employee and the directive given to new franchises. These lingering issues I brought concerns about in the first weeks of opening but was disregarded at every turn despite my experience with festival traffic. As a result I decided this was not a place I wanted to advance, but with a good-enough paycheck I’d be a lowly grunt in the kitchen four days a week, at five days a week I would have quit or been fired over a public outburst long ago. If Krusty Krab alters course slightly while being true to the brand this could be a successful chain.
My unique employment history in brick and mortar restaurants, food trucks, pop up culinary concepts, trade shows/conventions, and the film industry make me an ideal candidate to be on the opening team for new KK locations. My outgoing nature and foresight are valuable assets. For example, on training week before opening when I was standing around idly without a task I took it upon myself to organize the disarray that was dry storage. Overhearing Krabs tell another manager where he wanted the cleaning products placed, I had a jumping off point and the organization I created nine months ago is still largely in place. Since returning from my vacation in early February I have made it my mission to keep the storage area organized because it was again starting to resemble a hoarder’s house rather than a commercial kitchen. This is now part of my weekly routines because every time I turn my back there is more product being placed haphazardly just anywhere with little regard. I also recently reorganized the walk-in cooler because of problematic stocking with items being placed on the same shelf or below raw proteins. I also simply put all the like products together such as cheeses or fruits that were scattered amongst several shelves. With recent overordering I cannot keep up with the organization of the walk in cooler. The pattern recognition of food types and even simple shapes appears to be lost on the Bikini Bottom crew. My daily reorganization of containers is proof of this. Most days I’ll take a few minutes to put all cylinders together, all cambros together in descending volume, all deep and shallow pans next to each other rather than intermixed. My decision to be a kitchen manager at age 19 from 2005 thru 2008 and rarely enter restaurant management since is very calculated.
With my prior knowledge of professional kitchens I was becoming Bikini Bottom’s resident nag to coworkers as I made note of health department violations on a daily basis. I stopped after being largely ignored for two weeks. My regular health department nags include; a battle with jackets and hats being placed only in the designated area (a designated area that did not exist until I created a place for personal items a in January by neatly organizing the dry storage area again), waiting until prepped items are cooled before a cover is placed on top, placement of raw seafood, open containers (very often sugar, flour, and pancake mix bags ripped open and left), and dirty dishes/containers placed back in rotation. The dirty dishes and containers in rotation with the clean ones are at an atrociously high number. I have given up on making the 4th fryer seafood allergy safe too. With the low volume of seafood allergy safe items Bikini Bottom should purchase smaller baskets to visually discourage cross contamination with the other fryers and baskets. My skills to organize the kitchen do not end with simply where to store products to meet minimal health department standards.
Half of the space in the Bikini Bottom kitchen is completely wasted on an ill-advised walkway to the dishpit. An intelligent design would place a second doorway directly to the dishpit connected to the bar or where the bathrooms reside. Numerous times during the opening week of KK Bikini Bottom I said, yelled, sang, and muttered that we have too many food items for the amount of space we have. Icus stated that there was more space than Bluffington. Is Bluffington intelligently designed? Because Bikini Bottom most certainly isn’t. So Bikini Bottom actually has less space even if there is more square footage. See the attached diagram for an intelligent design that could potentially house a menu of this size. Bikini Bottom forces a line design on this kitchen when an open concept is needed for this menu. It’s as if this floorplan was created by a person who had only ever seen one commercial kitchen previously and couldn’t think 4th dimensionally to understand the needs of the workers to smoothly serve customers.
There is not enough counter space for pizzas without getting off the line, the microwave is placed completely out of the way, the freezer’s curved design is a waste of potential counter space and a falling hazard for containers stored on top of it, the toaster is an overcomplicated and overexpensive piece of machinery that serves exactly one purpose when a flat top could be used to toast bread and other purposes like a quesadilla special, sautee was designed without an overhang for spices, the pantry station lacks the counter space to have two containers of flour and two containers of batter for seafood allergies, there are no Frialator fryers which I have worked with at every single kitchen job previously instead we got the cheap Vulcan model (is that logical), the cheap low boy in pantry that doesn’t drain excess water anywhere it’s just supposed to evaporate somehow but doesn’t, the grill and fryer should be placed next to each other (with a higher volume of crossover than other stations), the floors are flat instead on having a mild decline towards the drains (just look at the standing water residing behind the oven right now), in the dishpit the spraying area and the filled sinks are backwards of a logical dipshit, the ramp to the back door is on the wrong side, there is no refrigerated place downstairs to stage extra food for busy shifts (the beer cooler is once again used for such food items because of this massive oversight), the prep station is an afterthought and miniscule, the dishes on the line are difficult to grab for anyone under 5’11” and inaccessible for anyone under 5’6” (instead of putting them underneath tables that also give that desperately needed counterspace I spoke of), there is not enough space to store to-go containers or boats behind the line, expo is lacking a low boy for the numerous items that are supposed to be cold but are instead kept at room temperature all day long, no one in management thought about buying shelves until right before Bikini Bottom opened as a result the clean full sheets sat on the floor for days, we had only the exact amount of 1⁄6 pans for an absurd amount of time making it impossible to rotate and clean them when necessary (which is daily), we still struggle with 1/9 pan supply. And just when I thought I documented all the poor design choices possible I stumbled upon a person whose office holiday party was booked at KK Bikini Bottom. The deck space works just fine as a deck. It does not double well as a gathering space. The space is too long and narrow for parties, it promotes little splitoff groups rather than a coming together of a larger gathering. It may be advantageous to contact a social psychologist for help designing a private party space that promotes intermingling rather than enforcing small pockets to form. The reorganization of the physical kitchen isn’t all that screams for an overhaul.
There are six positions on the line at the Krusty Krab; expo, oven, grill, sautee, fryer, and pantry. But the pantry and fryer positions are forced together like a bad remix. Everyone who mainly works pantry deserves a $6 raise immediately because it is a station and a half. Both Icus and Krumm, while kitchen manager, kind of acknowledged the pantry is too big for one station without outright mentioning the lopsided distribution of work. I imagine in the only location where this works, Bluffington, a second person joins the pantry at noon because of the unreasonable amount of items one person is tasked with. Bikini Bottom only has one person in this position at all times, maybe modify it for one person? The excess of items on the pantry position largely resembles a position I would call “set-up” or “build” at a previous job that made sensible choices. This build position should have tostadas, tacos, butcher’s blocks, toast, salads, lettuce wrap set ups, and preparing plating for whichever station is most bogged down. I have absolutely lost my mind yelling about salads at least once a month, ranting that they do not belong on the fryer position because of how illogical it is that five salads are included on the mountain of other items the pantry has. I have always considered working in a kitchen a kind of dance, and the pantry station demands an unnecessarily convoluted dance to keep up with the demand. Without the salads, tostadas, and tacos the station is already the busiest. Do we really need to combine ballet and swing by including these extra awkward dance steps in this single station? For a kitchen designed this poorly I suppose it is. Again, see attached document for an intelligently designed kitchen that might be able to accommodate this menu. Unless Bikini Bottom is going to close for a month to fix the baffling floor plan design the menu is shouting to be reduced to 30-36 items.
The menu is too big. Krusty Krab is the jack of all foods, master of none. In general I believe individual locations should be allowed 18% omissions, and 18% unique items to this wildly unwieldy menu sitting around 50 food items including sides. The insistence on keeping menu items that don’t sell at Bikini Bottom because of Bluffington is mind boggling. Chicken tenders do not sell at Bikini Bottom. fried sushi does not sell at Bikini Bottom, not enough to justify their place on the line. I don’t care how well these items work in Bluffinton. They. Do. Not. Work. At. Bikini. Bottom. If the KK location in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean sells an incredible amount of live krill does that mean Bikini Bottom and O-Town must sell live krill too? Take the fried sushi off the menu. I had a complete meltdown about this during a Dimmadome service and my valid point was met with indifference. Replace the kid’s tenders with a kid’s fish sticks. We already have the tilapia fish sticks on the line for tacos. Or make the kid’s fish sticks cod. We cut cod to order for fish tacos in spite of health code violations because it is too rare of an order to make beforehand. Saffron in mashed potatoes? If you must. Why are green tomatoes only on the menu during lunch? Bikini Bottom throws away a sizable amount of spoiled green tomatoes each week. Have green tomatoes on the menu all day long or don’t have them at all. The smoked salmon could go on salads or a special taco to justify its place on the line. The corn pico’s place on the line is unjustified. It only goes on one item, tostadas, which are not particularly popular. If we had a taco salad we could throw the corn pico on there. We also have unreasonable waste from unusable taco shells, smash up those imperfect taco shells and throw them on said taco salad. But before we add salads, let's get rid of the pear and kale salads. The pears' position on the line are unjustified, if we threw them on a taco variation maybe their place on the Bikini Bottom line could be argued but for now they only go on a salad that isn’t particularly popular. The kale salad is an issue of space for a 4th green for salads is too much. The krusty salad is my most hated house salad of all time. And it comes down to the toast with goat cheese. This ancillary step of spreading goat cheese on a cracker is an unnecessary step for an overly complicated dance and should be part of the expo dance if expo wasn’t a shoddily designed afterthought lacking a low boy.
There are a plethora of squeeze bottles on the pantry station that have no place on the overloaded station. They belong to an expo station with a low boy to keep them cold. Pantry has an overwhelming ten squeeze bottles: chipotle crema, sweet chili vinaigrette, buffalo, korean bbq, ranch, caesar, wine vinaigrette, lemon vinaigrette, honey mustard, and lemon aioli. Only the first four are justified on an intelligently designed fryer section, the second four belong on the build station, the last two have no place anywhere but expo. With this extra space sautee could keep their bottles and two purees cold in the fryer's lowboy instead of leaving them at room temperature all day inviting a pathogen party. This theorized intelligently designed expo would have room to keep these four squeeze bottles and a double of every sauce chilled to pour them into ramekins, a move that is highly common in the expo dance. The fact that expo doesn’t have a double of all squeeze bottles is foolish. Expo has to bother an overloaded station to pour these side sauces instead.
How many gallons of basil aioli has Bikini Bottom thrown away in 11 months? Four aiolis in general is way too many and most go on a single item; basil aioli on the incredibly unpopular veggie burger, lemon aioli for calamari, sweet chili aioli for the BLT that is only served half of the day, and garlic aioli actually goes on two items…I believe. What a colossal waste of precious little space, lose two aiolis and then you can sing the logical song with me. Perhaps we can put garlic aioli and sweet chili vinaigrette on the BLT separately and accomplish the exact same thing the sweet chili aioli does. The wings too have unneeded complications. Having worked at a sports bar specializing in wings for the better part of a decade I find KK’s plating of wings to be overly pretentious. The carrots, celery, and blue cheese have lost function. Heffer Wolf always said no one eats the carrot/celery julienne with blue cheese. It’s a complete waste of all the ingredients because you’ve gone too far with the presentation. Wings aren’t fancy. Wings are supposed to have a small pool of sauce and be sloppy. It’s like a sloppy joe that’s not sloppy, an unsloppy joe is a failure to sloppy joes just as the KK presentation of wings is a disparagement to the dish. Ever since training week back in 2022 I have used a scale to give Bikini Bottom a passing or failing grade.
Chokey Chicken to Chum Bucket is the scale I use to judge efficiency and sanity at Bikini Bottom. Both establishments are upscale casual dining experiences in Capitol City in the same vein as KK. Chokey had high employee retention and relatively smooth openings for new locations. Chum Bucket’s employee turnover was high and every location opening was chaotic. Which one sounds closer to KK? Chokey Chicken was filled with chefs I respect including Chef Ren Hoek who remains a close friend to this day. Ren lost his lifelong passion for kitchen work after working management at Chum Bucket. He’s actually seeking work in Bikini Bottom. Call him up at [phone number], but KK will give him Nam’ flashbacks of why he chose driving for a living rather than cooking for five years. The pair of us together helming Bikini Bottom with the ability to omit and create 18% of the overloaded menu can bring success to this franchise. We have worked well numerous times in the past on various concepts in the past including creating The Attack of the Pickled Tomatoes Burger for [Promotional live performance of a TV show] at the Capitol City Theater. We served 100 people in 60 at the [sitcom filming] lunch. That’s physically impossible but somehow we did it quite a few times.
A fun anecdote about Ren Hoek’s KK experience from the soft launch; on training week numerous times I brought concerns about being seafood allergy safe that were dismissed. As mentioned earlier the pantry station lacks the counter space to have two containers of flour and two containers of batter, one each of which seafood never touches. Before the soft launch Chef Stimpy from Bluffington insisted all customers just kind of know everything is prone to be seafood contaminated. Well, chef Ren was a customer that night and this absolutely was not communicated to customers. He claimed to have a slight seafood allergy and was not informed of what the crab soup was. In reality he does not have a seafood allergy. I didn’t discuss the seafood issue with Ren, separately we noticed egregious violations of food safety standards and we each responded in our own way. The soft launch service was so awful that night Chef Ren walked out of a free meal to pay for some ramen, never to return to Bikini Bottom. I attribute this oversight, and many of Bikini Bottom’s (and probably O-Town’s) problems to hubris over the Bluffington location.
Chef Chokey would also be hesitant to join the KK team. It will cost a finder’s fee just for me to reveal Chef Chokey’s name. Chef Chokey was a lead in the rapid expansion of Chokey Chicken restaurants. He opened numerous restaurants and was big on the philosophy that each restaurant must have its own personality in order to fit the unique local culture and the variety of working spaces. This is in direct conflict with the KK way that everything must be exactly like the Bluffington location no matter what. There was only one Chokey Chicken location that had the full menu, Chokey Springfield. Chokey Springfield had a large space which was intelligently designed to accommodate such a large menu. The KK menu is all over the place, closing in on 50 menu items which comes up as a failure on the Chokey Chicken/Chum Bucket scale. This is not the only area KK comes up as a major failure on the Chokey Chicken/Chum Bucket scale.
Has anyone in this company ever worked festival traffic before? Does anyone have the experience of working next to a major venue with 8000 seats before this one? The way Bikini Bottom handles Dimmadome services it certainly appears that the decision-makers fall on the wrong side of the Dunning-Kruger effect. Having all 50 items available during such massive traffic is completely asinine. An unwillingness to serve a partial menu is hindering the Bikini Bottom kitchen staff. I have worked festival traffic before, and Dimmadome events bring in festival traffic. I’ve worked inside a festival whose line never ended but every customer got their order in 5 minutes or less because the line kept flowing with only four items on the menu as that’s what was warranted at the B-Sharps Music Festival. I refuse to be set up for failure the way Bikini Bottom sets up Dimmadome services for failure. The entire week of concerts in [summer] 2022 I was set up for failure every day (it was after this I modified my availability to keep my sanity and my paycheck). When I brought my concerns about running efficiently during Dimmadome services I was labeled a B-worker for the first time in my employment history by Icus and Krabs. It is that moment which I was either going to holler at them both for being 2-dimensional thinkers who were obviously unqualified for the positions they accepted in this company, or just put my head down. If Bikini Bottom has a successful concert day service, hail your team because they snatched victory from the jaws of defeat. They swam with concrete shoes. I often wonder how many customers had bad experiences and never returned after concert days. A Dimmadome service should have no more than 25 items and have one or two specials to divert traffic towards an area the kitchen can keep moving. An Open Cup Open Plate (OCOP) special for foot traffic is absolutely needed. When I suggested OCOP special, Heffer was intrigued by this idea and immediately named burgers as the special to keep foot traffic flowing. Smithers wouldn’t hear this idea, babbling on about what’s advertised instead of hearing out a sound idea. This prattle despite radio commercials having inaccurate hours and social media promoting Bikini Bottom’s steak tacos to this day. I always found Smithers to be a better fit as a middle management office pencil pusher than as a hands-on restaurant manager. Overall I find KK managers are selected to be automatons not to question their orders rather than critical thinkers who could take the restaurant to the next level. During brunch service is another period of time that must be modified to lessen the heft of items. Having a full menu that barely works plus brunch is so deep into Chum Bucket territory, in my opinion we now have to use the Tropic Thunder scale of full [R-word censored by jobs
] to describe a 60-plus-item brunch. Chef Ren hired back a Chum Bucket cook who had a mental breakdown and stormed out during brunch (plus full menu) service because Ren knew the employee was justified and upper management was completely unreasonable in their brunch requests. It’s not just questionable decisions that hinder KK staff but improper equipment as well.
This is the first restaurant I have worked at which uses a touch screen on the line rather than tickets. From day one I found this to be technology for technology’s sake inferior to tickets. Chef Ren forced a new Chum Bucket location to rip out touch screens from the line and bring in ticket printers because of the higher efficiency. The touch screen is a great idea for expo, not the entire line. My biggest gripe is that each station does not get all the information. Early on I was regularly yelled at for not staggering my items, well I can’t see the rest of the order; a problem I have never had with a ticket system. Touchscreen software is also much more prone to errors and glitches. When I reported an error during a heavy service Icus and Krabs blamed my skills on the line without looking into the malfunctioning screen further. It was glitchy for weeks before the two finally investigated and corrected the issue I brought to their attention long before. Those two gave me an immense amount of ammunition to dislike them in the opening weeks until I stopped caring. The issue I had with being unable to scroll beyond the bottom of a completely filled screen has returned and is still there as of [my last day]. There are also important details that get buried. A frequent meltdown I have is that sauce on side requests and other important modifications are not capitalized or in red to catch the eye as they have been at jobs with tickets. These details get lost on Bikini Bottom’s touchscreens. A sauce on side salad made by me will be wrong 50% of the time because of the instructions being camouflaged in a word salad. This goes for coleslaw on the side and drizzle on the side too. Drizzle in general I dislike because of the pretentiousness, but whatever, drizzle it on top rather than putting it in a ramekin if you must. There are numerous places where Bikini Bottom overcomplicates matters for reasons I cannot ascertain.
Why is there such a large variety of plates? Why do we have a medium circular plate for salads and a large bowl for salads with protein? This just confuses the simplest of matters. I was told this is done because of the high price hike with protein, a larger presentation was desired. But that price hike is the price of protein in 2023. Bikini Bottom should put all salads in the large bowls and use all the circular salad plates in a skeet shooting promotion. I understand why we have both a circular platter plate and a pizza plate but in my restaurant the circular platter plates must go...or maybe the large platter plate instead. Is the large platter used for anything besides fish and chips? That extra space on fish and chips plates are only used for side sauces which can easily be delivered to customers on small circular plates. What is the medium oval plate doing that the medium rectangular plate isn’t? And vice versa. Why do they both exist when they are approximately the same size? Let me write an internet commercial where we break a lot of plates so we can get some logical use out of the superfluous plates. I don’t care which one is destroyed, the ovals or the rectangles but one of them is an unnecessary redundancy in excess done again. Speaking of commercials, the unimaginative radio advertisements for Bikini Bottom are doing little to lure new customers to the restaurant.
The three radio spots I have heard on KBBL all sound like they were produced by a marketing 101 student who wasn’t a natural in the field. The voiceover actor was so uncharismatic I was certain someone from the office was chosen at random to read the copy. Then I heard that same voiceover actor selling pool supplies on another radio station so I concluded that Bikini Bottom must have hired the cheapest guy in town to produce the most basic of commercials. Perhaps there is someone else you could hire more qualified to voiceover these commercials, an actor with experience on an Emmy award winning cable program whose unique place in the film industry was written about on [website] would be a much wiser choice to be the voice of the KK? (See external link). In the ad there was no catchphrase, no jingle, no music whatsoever. This simple approach to commercials lacks the pizazz to catch the attention of radio listeners. The first two commercials I heard would get a C in marketing 101 as they were nearly the exact same and accomplished the bare minimum to sell wares, the third one would maybe get a B- because there was some sort of attempted gimmick with the voiceover whispering to represent thinking inside his head about what he was going to eat later at KK. Not only does this commercial give no reason for the man to think inside his head, the outside world still and unpopulated. To see what a creative person would do with this concept see the attached script. There is an attempted slogan that could become part of an ad campaign. Commercials aren’t the only lost opportunities in promotions.
There are numerous promotional celebrity tie-ins at Bikini Bottom’s fingertips with Dimmadome performers. The restaurant could have a Phish sandwich as a OCOP special on [Phish performance dates], or a pretentious Jelly Roll on [Jelly Roll performance date]. Has anyone reached out to the Dimmadome theater or talent management for approved special menu items to be promoted inside the dome? Perhaps a special 20% discount to ticket holders? Is Bikini Bottom capable of getting permits to extend Open Container hours beyond [cutoff time] for an afterparty or block party throughout a Dimmadome concert? I see additional marketing opportunities left on the table for all new locations.
I believe new KK locations are missing out on a marketing campaign by opening with the entire cumbersome 50 item menu. This is a staggering amount of menu items which is too much to ask new staffers to perfect all at once. After a few months expanding the menu by approximately ten items is catching to customers who haven’t returned after a single visit or infrequently stop into KK. There are ten new food items that might appeal to them. Just like it appears KK doesn’t know what it’s looking for in a good commercial spot, this company doesn’t appear to recognize a talented from an untalented worker until it’s too late.
It is my understanding that KK had a headhunter to find Icus, the first Bikini Bottom kitchen manager. If it were up to me I’d hire someone to break the legs of that headhunter for bringing in a subpar kitchen lead. We are still attempting to recover from the lousy choices she made in the floor plan. If anybody responsible for Bikini Bottom’s floor plan is still giving input, stop them immediately. Once the doors were open to the public Icus had his head in the clouds to a point where I questioned if he saw the writing on the walls of an imminent demotion and stopped trying as a result. I had a full deck of 3x5 cards in an archaic powerpoint presentation bringing numerous concerns to light that he kept putting off listening to until he was fired. Those same cards were broken out for this essay. The second kitchen manager, Krumm, is a good lesson in honesty. According to Heffer, Krumm was given a bill of goods about how smoothly KK Bikini Bottom was running. Since Krumm stepped into a latrine pit which he was led to believe was a heated pool, he left in short time. Krumm also had plans to modify the menu but when his bosses told him to be a rodeo clown rather than a cowboy Krumm didn’t take too kindly to that. Meanwhile Heffer was the savior of the Bikini Bottom kitchen. I didn’t agree with every single decision he made, but I did with a majority of them. Heffer’s overhaul was such a blessing so I didn’t have to fiddle with the organization of 60% of the equipment anymore, only about 20% now. Too bad Heffer’s crippling depression came back after bashing his head into the wall out of frustration with the shackles KK restrained him with.
The current management team is enthusiastic but inexperienced. I see an accumulation of small infractions that might bring down Bikini Bottom’s health department rating significantly. I see the entire management team being inattentive or unaware about organizational issues. Whatever bureaucratic nonsense corporate tasks everyone with from the original sous chef Skeeter to Patty Mayonnaise that makes them walk away from the line between 11am and 1pm especially is infuriating. I have never been left alone on a multi-person line during peak hours so regularly, and I won’t tolerate it anymore. As much as I believe in his drive, I imagine our current kitchen manager SpongeBob will be let go after a disastrous service during the Dimmadome concert season that someone has to take the fall for. Chef Ren and I could help bring experience in management and dealing with festival traffic...if corporate does not force us to follow a failing strategy.
After working nearly a year at KK you may ask why I’m not proficient on more than one station. Excellent question. First, when I move over to another station the squeeze bottles are never labeled (until Stu Pickles was hired, now they’re sometimes labeled), so I always looked at the glut of unlabeled sauces and I’d go back to my station because the basic information is missing (also a health department violation for having numerous unlabeled, unchilled bottles). In his first week the new general manager Stu Pickles pulled out 90% of the containers under the grill station because they were lacking labels despite an expected health department visit. The second reason for my menu ignorance is the mountain of prep for my own and upcoming shifts I have piled up on my station throughout service. My attention to detail appears to be next level with my ability to anticipate stocking all items for all shifts including the weeknd. The third reason I wouldn’t learn multiple stations is a defense against the afternoon conference calls. In [month] the Bikini Bottom line was unprepared for a busy post lunch because one cook was cut and our expo person was busy with a conference call. The two of us remaining on the line had a miserable slog through an unexpectedly busy afternoon. When I brought this up to Krabs he disregarded me, being a good bean counter he quoted the cost percentage. What he didn’t take into account was the missing expo person who could have jumped on the line and expo to help the understaffed two man team. That person was stuck on a conference call. Just recently I saw the company actively lose money because of this poorly thought-out meeting during business hours. A customer wanted to order a dessert that was 86ed but had been restocked by our prep cook an hour before. The server was unable to sell them their dessert because the only person in the building who could help un-86 an item was on a conference call. This conference call calamity is another bone-headed choice that speaks to a larger decision-making problem within the corporate structure. Finish the conference calls by 10:45 am eastern.
In conclusion, I quit my position as a lowly grunt for this company because of its unwarranted perplexing dance steps and below average management. I don’t care how much varnish and lacquer is supplied, I refuse to polish this Bikini Bottom turd as a manager or full-time employee under the current circumstances. You would have to take a pickaxe to the floor, possibly relocate the bathrooms to add a door to the dishpit, get rid of the cheap low boy that doesn’t properly drain excess water, and Mr Gorbachov knock down that wall in the middle of the kitchen to give the proper amount of space to work. Or simply reduce the menu to 36 items (including sides) because that’s the amount of space this dreadful design can comfortably output. Would Gordon Ramsay compliment KK for all the unnecessary convoluted complications abound, or would Chef Ramsay yell about keeping it simple and demand KK chuck it in the flip? Thanks to the numerous pop up restaurants I have been a part of and the hectic world of trade shows/conventions, I may have more experience than anyone else employed by KK in smoothly opening a new location. I would enjoy being part of the opening team to ensure new locations have an efficiency Bikini Bottom lacks, and to keep upper management away from their worst instincts. Work with me and Chef Ren and we will help you become a well oiled machine like Chokey Chicken instead of the Chum Bucket cesspit Bikini Bottom currently embodies.

2023.06.01 17:38 ArgonSong Existential Crisis surrounding newly discovered Autism prognosis
I am currently having an existential crisis around my "high-functioning" autism diagnosis, and since I have no one else to talk to about this I am turning to Reddit for my existential rant to see if anyone can relate or how they coped. Feel free to skip to the "Existential Crisis" portion at the bottom if you don't want to read the backstory. Although honestly either way it's pretty long. Backstory:
So, about ten years ago I was diagnosed with high functioning autism. I was nineteen at the time. Like many autistic women, I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety first. I only went for an autism evaluation in the first place because I was seeing a therapist at the time who was convinced I had autism. I thought that she was wrong, so in order to prove this, I went to get evaluated. This backfired marvelously as the evaluator also determined that I was autistic.
Around the time of the diagnosis, I googled high functioning autism symptoms and saw that it explained my sensory issues with sound, my social awkwardness, my love of pacing and swinging outside, my motor tic, and walking on my toes. It possibly contributed to my depression and anxiety. But I honest to god did not think it impacted my life beyond that. Nowhere in any of those articles did they mention the actual life outcomes for people with autism. In true autistic fashion I took "high functioning" literally. I assumed it meant that people with HFA could function at a high level and have a relatively normal life. No one ever explained what my diagnosis meant and I never received treatment or support for it. I just got the report in the mail and never saw the evaluator again.
So I continue going about my day and expect that I can have a normal life. I just carry around earplugs along with an unsubstantiated belief in my masking abilities.
Cue that voice in Spongebob that says "Ten Years Later..."
My life is kinda garbage. I went to college right after high school, but I dropped out two years in due to becoming extremely overwhelmed and depressed, along with developing chronic migraines. I moved back home with my parents. Since then, I have only managed to work or go to school part-time. Last year, things were really looking up. My migraines had been under control for a few years. I finally graduated college and got off of disability. And I got my first full-time job. And burned out and quit within a few months. Just like everything else I have ever done. I then got another part-time job within weeks and the same thing happened. In fact, it's happening right now, I'm quitting my part-time job that I got after the full-time job because of how much it stresses me out and triggers my sensory issues.
I felt really bad about this. In addition to feeling more depressed and burned out than I have in a while, I just felt like I was a failure. Most people are more successful than me by my age. Sure I had my struggles with depression, but I had really believed that if I just worked really really hard, I could have a normal life and a full-time job and move out and have a partner and just be a successful, normal human being. All I did was try to meet that goal and all I did was fail. I tried all the depression medications, all the therapy but all it did was get me here. Every time I try to work for any prolonged period of time, I eventually become so overwhelmed and depressed I just have constant suicidal thoughts until I can't do it anymore. I either quit my job or check in to a psych ward. Rinse. Repeat. But it's not like I can just do nothing for the rest of my life so I feel like I have to keep trying. I don't know what else to do.
I was feeling like a failure due to getting yet another job and burning out yet again within a few months. At some point I was surfing reddit and came across this thread of how high functioning gifted autistic people cope. I ended up reading it in depth, since I'm this supposedly intellectually gifted high functioning autistic person even though I'm not coping very well at all. And all of the comments were like "I'm high functioning but even I can't hold down a full-time job."
I was shocked. And that's when I learn that "high functioning autism" doesn't actually refer to the level of daily functioning. It refers to support needs. "High functioning" autists have lower support needs than people with autism and intellectual disabilities. HFAs have autism but don't have an intellectual disability. That's all it means. https://www.spectrumnews.org/news/large-study-supports-discarding-term-high-functioning-autism/
Then I look up the life outcomes of people with "high functioning" autism and it is literally the most depressing thing I have ever read.
-80% of high functioning autistic people (HFAs) don't have a full-time job
-15% of autistic high school students graduate from college overall. Of those who do attend college, only 39% eventually graduate
-Most HFAs can't maintain (or sometimes even start) a long-term romantic relationship or marriage
-People with autism, even "high functioning" autsim, literally have the lowest employment rates of any disability. https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s40489-014-0041-6
-Additionally, people with autism have the worst life outcomes of any developmental disability, and one of the highest rates of suicidal ideation at 66% https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lanpsy/article/PIIS2215-0366(14)70248-2/fulltext
The odds are against even the "highest functioning" autists from graduating college, maintaining full-time employment, or getting married. I feel incredibly stupid, but I never knew this until now. And now every sandcastle plan for my life I ever had is collapsing. I'm having an existential crisis. I'm finally facing facts and beginning to abandon my delusional lifelong optimism and realizing that maybe there are things I just can't do, and it's not about how hard I try or how 'smart' I am. Like maybe I will never be able to work full-time and I should stop pushing myself to the breaking point over and over again, like Sisyphus bound to hell. I know you might be thinking, why did you have such a delusional level of optimism after so many failures? But I guess the answer is that it's what got me through the day.
For the first time I even began to question my ability to live with a partner, because after all I would have to be around them pretty much every day and would have a lot less alone time as a result. Could I actually handle that? What if I can't handle the things I think I can handle? I thought I could handle working full time or just life in general but I was obviously wrong about that. What if I'm wrong about other things I thought I could handle too? How is my life even going to go now?
I'm trying to figure out how I might be able to live off of part-time work, or how I could get into more freelance or work-from-home stuff so I could stand to work more hours, but my parents don't believe I have a real disability and are putting a lot of pressure on me. They say they're going to start charging me rent soon. I mean, they say they believe the official diagnosis, but they also say things like "Life is hard" and "You keep quitting things when they get hard. Can't you find a way to stop being such a quitter?" They think all of my career ideas are terrible and I feel like if I don't get my life together then I'm disappointing them. I did share HFA employment statistics with them, which they didn't know about before, but it didn't seem to change anything. My dad said I was using them to "portray myself as fragile." I would rather not live with them because they're pretty toxic and controlling tbh but I don't have anywhere else to go. I'm not exactly sure what I hope to gain by ranting about this but I guess I want to know how other people dealt with the horrible prognosis autistic people have. Did you know when you got your diagnosis about these statistics? If not how did you find out? Do you let the "average" prognosis define or affect you? Did it allow you to cut yourself some slack? Did other people in your life cut you the slack you needed too?

2023.06.01 17:38 abrasivebjorn I haven’t taken a practice test in a while… should I push back June test date?
I took the October and November LSAT and it didn’t go as well as I would have liked. I took a couple of months off from studying and have been studying since February for the June exam.
I have used up all but one of the practice tests. I have just been doing timed sections, as opposed to full tests since February.
I’m wondering if it’s a bad idea to take the June test given that I haven’t taken a practice test since November. I am planning to at least take the 1 fresh one I have left this weekend. I’ve been doing fine on timed sections, but not sure if this approach was ill advised.

2023.06.01 17:38 5ftGoliath Do galarian birds auto flee or was I just unlucky?
I see a lot of posts about their catch rate and I have only run into one since I got back into the game about a month ago.
It was galarian Articuno and it fled after breaking out once. Was this unlucky or do they always flee after one ball? I haven't seen any posts talking about it so I assume I had bad luck but wanted to make sure.

2023.06.01 17:38 Bald-Wisent-1 Brighamia insignis - propagation from seeds possible?
A few months ago I bought Brighamia insignis. It was in a bad condition, overwatered with plenty of yelow leaves. I changed soild and removed about 90% of roots. After some time, the plan started to bloom. Nothing unusual for any plant in case of dying. I decided to move pollen from one flower to another, but I have no idea if it's possible to pollinete it with its own pollen. I kept the flowers until they dried out. Surprisingly I noticed that there were seeds. I put them in soil with a hope to get some new plants soon, but after 3 months I still see no results. Does it mean that the seeds weren't polinated at all?

2023.06.01 17:38 Adeisha Whatever you do, DO NOT fly with SkyFly Airlines. Their CEO is a cold-blooded murderer.
This post is going to sound like the ramblings of a crazed conspiracy theorist - the kind that everyone rolls their eyes at and pays no mind to. I’m going to ask you all for a difficult favor. Please hear me out first before writing me off as paranoid and insane.
You might be familiar with the airline SkyFly. For those that aren’t - SkyFly is an airline originating from Austin, Texas. It started out as a lesser known company, but within five years, it became one of the top dogs in the airline business. They’re also the worst.
If you thought United Airlines was bad for breaking guitars, or Delta Airlines for kicking passengers off of overbooked flights, you haven’t seen anything yet. SkyFly takes the cake. The CEO, Felix Thompson is a literal evil genius. He got away with first degree murder by masking it as negligent homicide.
Felix made it look like the oh so tragic death of Captain Gary Hurst was a result of cutting corners, instead of him being a specific target. I have proof of this. All you need to do is read the black box transcript from SkyFly Flight 49, which slammed into a field on May 29, 2013 due to a sudden mechanical failure. Captain Gary Hurst, Co-Captain Drew Baltimore, the four flight attendants, and all 250 passengers were killed on impact. There were no survivors.
SkyFly paid a good deal of money to keep that transcript discreet. You won’t find it on a Google search. You won’t find any news articles on it, either. This travesty was swept beneath the rug, and thoroughly stomped on to keep it there. What Felix did not anticipate, was for his own daughter to have enough of a conscience to betray him.
I’m leaking this transcript, because both customers and employees of SkyFly Airlines deserve to know the serious risk to their lives.
Start of Transcript
1549:49.3 [start of recording]
1549:50 Captain: Good morning everyone! Thank you for flying SkyFly Airlines! We expect to arrive in Boston, Massachusetts in six hours.
1549:54.8 [sound of click]
1549:57.7 Co-Pilot: I love the feeling of lifting off from the ground. It’s like in John Gillepsie’s poem: “Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth, And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings…”
1550:14 Captain: Let’s hope this one stays in the air.
1550:22 Co-Pilot: What do you mean?
1550:25 Captain: You don’t feel that rattling?
1550:25 Co-Pilot: Shit. We need to return to the airport to get it looked at.
1550:27 Captain: SkyFly Airlines Flight 49 calling into air traffic.
1550:31 Air Traffic: Flight 49? What’s the situation?
1550:32 [Sound of click]
1550:34 Captain: We just took off and the plane is starting to rattle. The yoke feels stiff as well. Permission to return to the airport for an urgent landing?
1550:35 Air Traffic: [Captain], you have been flying for over fifteen years. You don’t need to make such a dramatic move over a little bit of turbulence.
1550:37 Captain: And as someone who has been flying for over fifteen years, I’m telling you that there’s something seriously wrong with this plane!
1550: 38 [sound of clicking]
1150:40 Air Traffic: You don’t need to return to port! Just keep flying! If it gets worse in the next hour, then we can discuss an emergency landing!
1550:43 Captain: Roger that!
1550:44 [sound of click]
1550:44.1 Captain: What a dick…
1550:45 Co-Pilot: Are we going to be okay?
1551:01 Captain: We can only pray.
1551:09.3 Captain: To be fair, things have smoothened out. Maybe I was getting paranoid.
1551:09.9 Co-Pilot: Why did you have such an extreme reaction?
1551:18.1 Captain: I keep getting put in broken planes. The first time, a failure in the elevators had this plane tossing and turning. The second time, there was a sudden explosion in BOTH engines. The third time, the plane literally stalled for a second. Thankfully I was able to land before anyone got seriously hurt, but this is not a lucky streak that I want to press.
1551:20.6 Co-Pilot: Let’s try not to let the worst case scenario impede on our current flight. A little bit of turbulence isn’t going to hurt us.
1551:36 Captain: What happened to agreeing with me to land the plane immediately and get it looked at?
1551:38 Co-Pilot: Air traffic made a good point.
1551:40 [the captain heaves a heavy sigh]
1551:42 [sound of rattling]
1551:50 Captain: Shit!
1551:58 Co-Pilot: What was that??
1552:01 Captain: I don’t know, but nothing good.
1552:02 [sound of an electronic hissing]
1552:31 Plane Warning System: Autopilot disabled. Autopilot disabled. Autopilot disabled.
1552:41 Captain: What did I fucking tell you?
1552:51 [Sound of click]
1552:53 Captain: Hold onto that controller like your life depends on it - because it does!
1552:59 Captain: SkyFly Airlines Flight 49 calling into air traffic. We have an emergency.
1553:03 Air Traffic: Flight 49? What’s the problem?
1553:08 Captain: The plane is shaking like an earthquake, and autopilot has suddenly disabled itself. Permission to make an emergency landing?
1553:09 Air Traffic: Just fly it manually! You know how to do that!
1553:10 Captain: Air traffic, I am telling you that this plane is going to fall apart before we get there!
1553:11 Air Traffic: Get a grip! Just keep flying manually!
1553:15 Captain: Roger that, asshole.
1553:17 Captain: Well, I suppose it’s good practice for flying manually.
1553:19 Co-Pilot: Is this safe?
1553:21 Captain: Not at all. But what choice do we have?
1553:28 Co-Pilot: If something else happens and air traffic denies the request to land, maybe we should just do it anyway. There are 250 lives at stake.
1553:35 Captain: That’s the plan. I’d land it now, but I’d catch too much shit for it.
1553:37 [sound of violent shaking]
1553:40 Captain: WOAH!!
1553:46 Plane Warning System: TERRAIN TERRAIN! PULL UP! TERRAIN TERRAIN! PULL UP!
1553:47 [sound of frantic clicking]
1553:48 Captain: Oh, thank god. I’m not ready to meet my maker yet.
1553:53 Captain: SkyFly Airlines Flight 49 calling into air traffic. We have a serious emergency.
1554:24 Air Traffic: Flight 49? What’s the problem?
1554:26 Captain: We temporarily lost control of the aircraft. We NEED to land before it happens again!
1554:32 Air Traffic: [murmuring] I guess we don’t have a choice but to let you land…
1554:33 Captain: Don’t have a choice?? What the hell is that supposed to mean??
1554:35 [sound of click]
1554:37 Captain: Oh shit! That was a scary pitch! I swear, it’s like these gears are covered in rust!
1554:50 Captain: Drew, why are you looking at me like that?
1554:51 Co-Pilot: Because I just realized that you’ve been put in broken planes for a reason…
1554:53 Captain: Air traffic control might be a dick, but they wouldn’t commit such an insane conspiracy with 250 other lives!
1555:00 Co-Pilot: I don’t think it’s a conspiracy. They just “don’t want to fix what isn’t broken.”
1555:00 Captain: What…
1555:01 Co-Pilot: I doubt these planes have had proper maintenance in a long time. Cutting corners is cheaper. If we make an emergency landing, SkyFly is going to have to pay to get the plane fixed.
1555:06 Captain: Why the hell would air traffic be involved in that?
1555:16 Co-Pilot: CEO’s know how to make friends.
1555:18 Plane Warning System: TERRAIN TERRAIN! PULL UP! TERRAIN TERRAIN! PULL UP!
1555:19 Captain: MAYDAY! MAYDAY! MAYDAY!
1555:20 Co-Pilot: [talking into black box] Melissa, baby, I love you so much. You’re the love of my life, okay? And it’s also okay if you move on and marry another man after me. I want you to be happy, okay? Don’t let this tragedy kill you too!
1555:24 Captain: IDIOT!! DON’T GIVE UP YET!! Yank on that yoke as hard as you can!!
1555:25 Co-Pilot: Roger that!
1555:30 Plane Warning System: TERRAIN TERRAIN! PULL UP! TERRAIN TERRAIN! PULL UP!
1555:31 Captain: MAYDAY! MAYDAY! MAYDAY!
1555:32 Air Traffic: Okay, Flight 49, you have permission to make an emergency landing.
1555:38 Captain: Let’s hope it’s not too late for that!
1555: 39 [sound of explosion]
1555:40 Captain: Air traffic, we just lost control of the vertical stabilizer!
1555:41 Air Traffic: Okay, what do you want to do?
1555:43 Captain: There’s nothing to be done at this point. We’re in an uncontrollable dive.
1555:45 Co-Pilot God have mercy on all of our souls…
1555:47 [sound of impact]
End of transcript
SkyFly Flight 49 slammed full speed into an empty field in Dripping Springs, Texas. There were no survivors. Just as co-pilot Drew Baltimore said, CEO’s know how to make friends. A further investigation would reveal that the air traffic control workers heard in this black box recording were being paid $5k check bonuses to keep these broken planes in the air.
Maintenance crews gave the clearance for the planes’ safety checks, but never did any real examination into their condition. It was a conspiracy, to be sure. But like I said in the beginning of this post, it was never about saving money. If it were a matter of frugality, EVERY SkyFly pilot would have been in a broken plane.
It was only Captain Gary Hurst that was assigned to these planes that were not suited for flight.
Captain Gary was such a good pilot that he could land a broken plane without casualties. When one busted plane was forced to go out of commission due to a successful landing, they’d put him in another one. I know you’re thinking that I’m making reaches. After all, why would such a conspiracy involve 250 other innocent passengers, 4 flight attendants, and another co-pilot?
Simple: When a CEO commits negligent homicide, they get a $2 million slap on the wrist, and can carry on with their lives. If a CEO commits 1st Degree murder, they risk life without parole.
CEO’s kill people everyday though human trafficking, exploitation of labor, negligent maintenance practices, and denying medical insurance to their employees. What’s 255 more in a simple plane crash? Captain Gary Hurst was always the target. The other innocent lives lost that day were simply a necessary collateral damage to get away with murder. I don’t know why my father wanted that man dead. I admit that I don’t have an explanation for a motive.
But only one pilot assigned to four consecutive broken planes? That’s not a coincidence. ESPECIALLY when air traffic control was trying to keep him in the air every single time.
If you’re a pilot still working for SkyFly, RESIGN ASAP before you become next. If you have a flight booked with SkyFly, cancel it immediately. You could be the next target, or the next collateral damage to kill their target.
My father does not care if you die, as long as he gets to live well.

2023.06.01 17:37 Reid89 Steam deck 2 in the works but what about now upgrades?
I love my Steam Deck it is the only dedicated gaming machine in my home. Besides my out of date slow af gaming PC. I do have a switch but I have no way of selling it cause I sold my joy cons and games for steam cards 😅. That being said how do you think valve will battle games becoming more demanding and larger file sizes. The steam deck 2 in works. But that's a few years out. How will the keep the deck now from becoming obsolete badly when more windows handheld PC coming from real mainstream company's. Is something like over clocking or idk there own version of mobile gpu.

2023.06.01 17:37 Moon-Sun-202 Does this sound like endo? Pelvic ultrasound showed 'stuck' left ovary
I'm hoping I can get some guidance here
I have had painful periods for as long as I can remember but as I'm getting older (now 30) they seem to be getting worse.
I have a pretty extensive family history of endometriosis so in early 2018 I had a laporoscapy, the gyno found no endo. I have pains in my pelvis, abdomen and back all throughout my cycle but I just put this down to bad period pain and then ibs pains.
Fast forward to now I'm really not coping with my periods and all this pain. it doesn't respond to paracetamol and ibuprofen and I can't tolerate opioids nor do I want to rely on them. I spend days in bed with my head pack.
I ended up in hospital this week and i had a pelvic ultrasound done. They said my left ovary was stuck (didn't say what to) and said that could be indicative of endometriosis.
Is it likely my 2018 lap was wrong and I could have endo and need another lap? Does anyone know what else a stuck ovary could mean?
Thank you x

2023.06.01 17:37 Frutsie I got laid off from my company after helping them grow (long rant sorry)
This was a few months ago and I have a new job now that treats me way better, but I have been reflecting on my previous job. I worked as a financial data analyst for a private investment firm that specialized in real estate (they did residential and commercial rentals) and got laid off unexpectedly because they hadn’t been acquiring anymore property since they couldn’t buy anything that could achieve the target returns they wanted. I started my career out of college there and spent the past 5 years working hard to help them grow and make their antiquated processes more efficient (the amount of paper these dinosaurs used and lack of functional software was astounding). I built multiple databases which allowed them to acquire more assets and access information quickly, switched them to another software which improved analytics, accounting, and operations, and their portfolio tripled under my time there.
I had issues with the job because they wanted me chained to a desk in the office even during the pandemic in April 2020 they made me come in and were able to finagle rules claiming I was “an essential worker”. It was taxing to say the least with no insurance plan provided by the company, no retirement plan until the end of 2022 with raises of about 2% each year and bonuses of 3%. I had to make my own IRA and pay $300 a month almost for insurance. They did not budge and any complaint I brought about it fell on deaf ears.
I had access to the company’s financials and despite the real estate economy getting crushed and interest rates rising, they were still performing very well with plenty of cash on hand to fulfill all their obligations. After all the work I had put in, with no warning, my boss calls me in and tells me I’m getting laid off and I’m getting 5 weeks salary severance after my 5 years of work that I had to wait over a month to receive.
After how much I built for them and improved things at their company this all felt like a slap in the face and really makes me not want to ever develop improvements for a company ever again because my previous company essentially took advantage of me and I got no reward out of it.
I was also the youngest guy at the company by maybe 20 years so I didn’t really have anyone who could relate to me. Everyone there seemed jaded and the way they talked about tenants was disgusting referring to them as drug addicts or bums. They had no problems raising rents for some single parent households $100+ per month because they could.
I know this is probably not a big deal, but it’s something that really bothered me and I wanted to get it off my chest. I don’t think I will ever be able to work in the investment sphere again, especially real estate.

2023.06.01 17:37 you-can-kiss-my-axe Is it a bad idea to tell an interviewer you have another interview scheduled?
I applied to Walmart a while back and decided to apply to other jobs a little over a week ago just in case, and today I have an interview with the Jack in the Box right down the road from my apartment.
Well, today, I unexpectedly woke up to Walmart calling me. They initially wanted me in for an interview today, but I was upfront with them, so they were willing to reschedule it to tomorrow afternoon.
I don't know if that was a good idea or what. I really don't want myself to look bad, and I was very polite with the Walmart interviewer. I'm 19 and have no prior work experience, so any advice would be appreciated.

2023.06.01 17:37 Felelelpo how hard it is to change swtich's thermal paste?
my switch is getting REALLY hot after a while on dock mode, to the point that if i come close to it i can hear the fans doing a "loud" noise. i believe that if i change the termal paste this problem will be either solved or wont be SO bad as it is, but the last time i did that with a console wasn't a good experience, do i have to go very deep on the console to change the thermal paste or is it easy/safe to do it?

2023.06.01 17:37 go4tblood When is it just not worth it anymore?
My husband and I have been together since 2009, married in 2015. We went through several pregnancy losses and two rounds of IVF and got blessed with twins. They're almost two.
Cut to now- we're roommates on good days and roommates who hate each other on bad days. I cannot spend my life like this. When we fight (feels like all the time), I am always the one to apologize first, even if I don't mean it. I'm literally apologizing just so he stops giving me the silent treatment. This is a hugely problematic and feels borderline abusive. I have brought it up several times to him. We both work from home so we're always around each other. I feel like I'm stuck in an endless cycle of contempt. I won't talk about it with my friends or family because I would be mortified if they heard how we behave towards one another.
I'm sick of apologizing first, I'm sick of the silent treatment.
