2023.03.22 13:35 thegreatestwhale Is Casting Networks worth is for Background Acting?

Hi all! I am new to background acting. Started with central casting about a month ago and I have been working 1-2 gigs per week through them. Seems like the other background actors are getting a lot of work from casting networks. I have been applying to jobs there for about a month and haven't received a single call. Is this normal or could something be wrong with my profile?

The Shattered Stars

The Galactic Federation exists only as a memory.

to reunite the scattered fragments of humanity,
to seek out forgotten stars,
to bravely rediscover what was lost long ago.

The boy from the ice planet distrusts the woman from the sky. For four hundred years his people have struggled to survive, even as they fight over the destroyed vessel that remains their ancestral home. When disaster strikes, the boy must call for help from the woman’s friends beyond the clouds.

2023.03.22 13:30 JoJo-Bizarre-1997 Thought about the Big Five of Asia - which countries can make further push in the FIFA World Cup?

Thought about the Big Five of Asia - which countries can make further push in the FIFA World Cup?
Talk about Asia, I think you know about the Big Five - the five AFC nations to have competed frequently in FIFA World Cup. They are Iran, South Korea, Japan, Saudi Arabia and the newcomer Australia. These countries accounted for over 36 FIFA World Cup appearances for Asia (though two of them were originally for Oceania). They are also perceived to be the only forces in Asia that can reckon the World Cup, at least by their merits of performances.
So, dear users, who do you expect to make further push in the FIFA World Cup in the future, for instance 2026 and 2030?
South Korea
With 11 appearances and finished fourth once, South Korea cements as the most and richest records of Asian teams in the FIFA World Cup. The country also won two Asian Cups, all in the inaugural editions.
South Korea has impressed the world with the country's rapid economic development in the aftermath of the Korean War. Back in 1960s, South Korea's GDP/per capita was equal to many Sub-Saharan African countries, and only few decades later, the country has become one of the wealthiest in the world.
This can also be said the same about football, although it was far from easy at the first place. South Korea qualified for the 1954 FIFA World Cup, the first time an Asian country qualified by its merit (Dutch East Indies/Indonesia qualified in 1938 due to Japan's withdrawal). In that World Cup though, South Korea was thrashed by Hungary and Turkey at the group stage. It took the Koreans 32 years later to make its second appearance in Mexico 1986, and has never missed a single edition since. Yet not until 2002, when the World Cup was hosted at home soil, that South Korea would register its first win, a 2-0 win over Poland in their eventual (though controversial) fourth place finish.
Since that World Cup, South Korea has been consistent, though sometimes troublesome, in qualifying to the FIFA World Cup. However, South Korea only replicated the knockout stage feat only two more other times, in 2010 and recent 2022. In both tournaments, South Korea found itself tragicallyy ended by South American opponents, in South Africa, they lost to Uruguay; in Qatar, they lost to Brazil; all in the round of sixteen.
The Asian giant is eager to be better in the next World Cups and, with the expansion to 48 teams starting with 2026 edition, South Korea's route is more open than ever. The country has also been able to export their successful domestic products that gained fames across the globe like Park Ji-sung and recently Son Heung-min. Yet if the country ever wants to repeat the 2002 feat, they will need to work harder to achieve their goals.
Japan's rise is even more fascinating to even neutral watchers. For most of Japan's history in relations with football, the sport was relegated mainly to an amateur status and Japanese public could not care less about football. The main sport in Japan was baseball.
However, some notable events changed the course of Japanese football. First, the introduction of renowned Japanese manga Captain Tsubasa inspired numerous Japanese and even foreign legends to take up the ball. Second, the establishment of the Japan Professional Football League, also known as J.League in 1991, reshaped Japan's relations with football forever. Their impacts are relevant to even today. If in the 1980s, football was still a strange sport for Japanese, then in just only a short span of time since 1991, Japan quickly became the dominant Asian power. The country won four Asian Cup titles, the most, and has never failed to qualify for a World Cup since 1998, Japan's debut.
The rapid rise of Japan as an Asian powerhouse and a consistent World Cup performer stunned everyone about how quick the country could be. Moreover, ever since their hard-fought qualification for the World Cup in 1998, Japan always managed to qualify automatically by finishing in top two. Yet Japan's rise in football was overshadowed by a string of bad luck in the round of sixteen; since Japan's debut in 1998, Japan reached the last sixteen four times, but were all eliminated in agonising fashion to Turkey, Paraguay, Belgium and Croatia.
Nonetheless, the increasing quality of Japanese football has been able to attract European clubs and numerous Japanese players since Hidetoshi Nakata have been able to establish their foothold in Europe. Names like Keisuke Honda, Shinji Kagawa to even now Takehiro Tomiyasu and Kaoru Mitoma are the evidences of Japan's rapid rise and how a good strategy can impact positively in long term. The 2022 FIFA World Cup, a tournament where Japan ran riots with two shock wins over Germany and Spain, embodied this. Unfortunately, with the round of sixteen curse continues to haunt Japanese players, they need to find the way to overcome them if Japan ever wishes to be in the quarter-finals for the first time ever.
Australia's status has long been a matter of debate. The country is geographically Oceanian, but culturally European. For quite a long time, Australia's football development had been hampered by their geography and OFC membership, a key reason why football isn't Australia's most popular sport for a long time.
Australia made only two entrance to the FIFA World Cup as a member of the OFC, first in 1974 and last in 2006. It was 2006 that Australia finally got acceptance as an AFC member, a wish fulfilled for many Australians, including from their late legend John Warren. Since joining Asia, Australia has become one of the rare Asian sides that can compete in the FIFA World Cup and, also, a new powerhouse of the continent. Australia had also won one Asian Cup in 2015 as the host nation, the only country to win in two separate confederates.
Yet unlike Japan, Australia's rise isn't rapid and quite troubling. As Australia's top league doesn't include promotion and relegation (though debates about it have risen for years), Australia's way of football development has not been maximised. Moreover, despite its status as an Asian powerhouse, many Asians still question if Australia can ever contribute something to Asia. In fact, two recent World Cups saw Australia qualify only by the playoff merits. However, Australia has proven stubborn as a force in the FIFA World Cup. Under Guus Hiddink in 2006, Australia reached the last sixteen for the first time, before being ended by eventual winner Italy. It took 16 years before Graham Arnold, who presided in one of Australia's poorest qualification performances, to repeat it again in Qatar 2022 as the best ever with six points at the group stage, before ended by another eventual winner, Argentina.
Australia is facing a new prospect that could be the game changer to football across the nation. As football is experiencing a resurgence following the World Cup in Qatar, and with the country about to host the 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup, the first major senior FIFA event in the nation, Australia will need to capitalise on it as soon as possible. Australians want to see more from their Socceroos, instead of just struggling to qualify by playoffs, as happened with two near death experiences, if they ever want to be in North America and subsequent World Cup.
Saudi Arabia
The oil-rich monarchy in West Asia has been able to establish itself a superpower in Asia and three consecutive Asian Cup titles proved it was no joke. Massive oil money has also financed Saudi Arabia's development of infrastructures and this greatly benefited the Kingdom on its path to become a consistent World Cup performer. Saudi Arabia qualified to their maiden appearance in the United States 1994, before doing it again for five other editions.
Yet for all instances of Saudi Arabia's massive wealth, the Kingdom only emerged from the group stage just once, in 1994. This was a phenomenal tournament of Saudi Arabia as Saeed Al-Owairan scored a beautiful goal against already-qualified Belgium to secure a historic shock 1-0 win over the European side, to sit second and reached the knockout stage in their debut. Saudi Arabia had come so close for a second knockout stage appearance in neighbouring Qatar 2022, where the Kingdom wrote one of its greatest chapters, a shock 2-1 win over eventual champions Argentina that, had the Falcons qualified, would have been remembered for decades; unfortunately, Poland and Mexico butchered that hope to condemn the Kingdom to a tragic bottom place exit in what was described as a huge missed opportunity, an exit that Salem Al-Dawsari, the hero against Argentina, bursted to tears for his country's failure, a moment captured by Arab media.
Criticism does run against Saudi Arabia though. Many commentators and even Saudi legends had condemned the government's protectionist policy, which was blamed for Saudi Arabia's failure to advance from their 1994 success. As far as 2002, the worst World Cup in Saudi history, legendary striker Sami Al-Jaber had condemned the government for trying to keep players at home rather than allowing footballers to go abroad. Moreover, there are concerns that Saudi Arabia is now chasing over profits rather than developing youth footballers after their lavish signing of Cristiano Ronaldo.
Whatever happens next to Saudi Arabia is for us to guess. Yet the Kingdom is now facing a daunting prospect of repeating the 1994 feat in 2026 and maybe 2030, ending their knockout drought. This is no easy mission however, as Saudi Arabia is preparing to fix the mess with the 2026 FIFA World Cup on sight with their coach Herve Renard, whose position remains in limbo due to recent attempt by FFF to get him as manager of the French women's team. As a hegemon of Asian football, if Saudi Arabia cannot do well in the next World Cups, its status will be severely damaged.
Iran is unique among the Asian powerhouses that is the only one to have never advanced past the group stage in every World Cup competition, yet also being the only Asian team in to have participated, and never, left the World Cup without a point, a fascinating difference considering Iran has played in six World Cups.
Iran is the fourth country in Asia to have played in the FIFA World Cup (fifth if counting Australia), and in their maiden appearance, Iran snatched a point from a 1-1 draw to Scotland. However, it took Iran two decades before returning to the World Cup in 1998, where they gained a historic 2-1 win over nemesis United States. Yet not until Carlos Queiroz's era that Iran finally found stability to take more World Cup participation, as they qualified for three consecutive World Cup since 2014, the first time Iran did so. Still, Iran could only win two other next matches, against Morocco (1-0) and Wales (2-0).
Iran has been unfortunate to be plagued by political turmoil at home. As for the result, Iran had underachieved at senior level, especially since 1979 when the Islamic regime took power from the Shah. The recent 2022 FIFA World Cup, where Iran's current generation reached its golden age, was tragically messed up by nationwide unrest related to the death of Mahsa Amini, is such of an example of how politics beset Iranian football. The Iranian regime is also accused of holding Iranian football potential back due to their constant interference and fear of public uprisings.
Now, Iran is led by a new coach, Ardeshir Ghalenoei, who coached Iran back in the 2007 AFC Asian Cup, and Ghalenoei faces a daunting challenge to help Iran to overcome their group stage curse. However, Iranian football, long beset by political interference and widespread corruption, may have to wait for a longer time to progress from the group stage.
Can any of them perform better in 2026 or 2030 FIFA World Cup? And if so, how?

2023.03.22 13:27 Iuka297 I hate tourist.

So I went to work at sea and spent my first summer working out of a small island and this place has a hotel that does Sunday brunch.
I was excited and decided to check it out since I was in the mood for eating like a king.
I come in sit down blah blah, and get my coffee and buffet.
Waiting on my coffee this guy who screams "Im a rich New Yorker SIMBA" sits down and immediately "Wow this ice water is WARM it's Alaska it should be COLD ICE COLD!"
Mine was ice cold and his had more ice than mine even. The waitress got him more ice, she asked if he wanted drinks. He demanded alcohol and she said that they can serve only wines that are low alcohol. He complains again "WINE ONLY!? THIS IS ALASKA I WANT SOMETHING STRONG ALASKA STRONG!"
I'm annoyed I just wanna eat, food is good and I'm doing Au Jus shots as this guy is wining about the crab saying "THIS IS ALASKAN KING CRAB I NEEDS TO BE BIG! I'M BEING RIPPED OFF THIS PLACE ISNT LUXURY ITS GARBAGE BACK HOME ALAKSAN CRAB LEGS ARE BIG YA HEAR ME BIG!"
I finished my food happily and the waitress who kept my coffee full got my empty plates immediately etc and good service I decide to leave a nice tip.
Usually tips are 8% suggested aka $5 for my meal. I put $20 down because I was treated very well and food was amazing.
I tuned him out, I'm angrier now....this son of a bitch...was on the cruise ship....that put my ship....on the FAR side of the island where it smells like cat food...
I just calmly, flatly, but loud enough said " SHUT THE FUCK UP." he was shocked "yyyou" was all he could sputter I turned to a very scared waitress, I thanked her and told her "Have a nice day miss, it was really good."

2023.03.22 13:27 WatercressOk6442 Why I Think Hat Kid Wins in Umbrella Vs Hat Kid (Skullgirls Vs A Hat in Time)

So, Umbrella Vs Hat Kid is one of my most wanted Death Battle matchups, so I decided to make this to discuss why, in my honest opinion, Hat Kid wins against Umbrella in it. Feel free to agree or disagree, but keep it clean for goodness sake.
So, let’s start off with something simple: Versatility.
Umbrella… Doesn’t really have much options in terms of versatility aside from just Hungern, who is still a formidable weapon with his long tongue and ability to eat people and other things. She can also use his slobber as a method of fighting which, while gross, is another method of fighting opponents.
With Hat Kid, it’s just no contest. She has a multitude of different Hats and Badges she could use to always have a leg up against Umbrella, including: The Sprint Hat, the Brewing Hat, the Ice Hat, the Time Stop Hat, the Scooter Badge, the Projectile Badge, the Hookshot Badge, ect.
Next up, let’s go over something I feel the need to address to some people: The Train Bomb thing.
Saying Hat Kid, “canonically dies to a train bomb,” is like saying Sora from Kingdom Hearts “canonically dies to Demyx’s giant water spell if he doesn’t beat all the water forms in time.” See how that doesn’t work? Especially considering the fact Hat Kid’s survived a fall from orbit (And landed on her feet btw) and can continue to be alive without her soul.
Now then, I’ll list off one more thing involving why I think Hat Kid beats Umbrella:
Comparing the Final Bosses.
The Skullgirl is said to have the power to destroy the world, so let’s go ahead and high-ball it, saying that the Skullgirl Marie is strong enough to destroy a planet. Impressive, but then compare it to Mustache Girl.
Mustache Girl has access to the Time Pieces, which are highly powerful as not only can they control time, but a single Time Piece is capable of creating a Time Rift, which is essentially an entire pocket dimension filled with stars. Oh, and might I add Mustache Girl can hit Hat Kid with Time Pieces and Hat Kid can shrug it off? Yeah, the Skullgirl ain’t got nothing on Mustache Girl.
So, that is some of my reasoning as to why Hat Kid can beat Umbrella if this matchup ever did happen. Hope you all enjoyed and if you have any issues, leave them in the comments , but just keep them clean and friendly. Anything not that I will not answer.
Also, keep in mind this is my first time doing this, so if you want to criticize, please go easy on me.
With that, see ya later.

2023.03.22 13:26 OmegaRees Tempering

My magic system is called Tempering and involves the manipulation of erosia, an energy from between dimensions that naturally destabilises physcial reality.
A cataclysm millions of years ago flooded the world with erosia which warped the world beyond recognition. Weakened erosia eventually crystalised into a form known as godstone which now forms a rock layer in the earth corresponding with the catalysm. Godstone is a source of erosia.
Conduits are individuals that have been granted specific abilites by lodestones - artefacts created by the deities that once ruled the world. Lodestones alter a person's physiology, allowing them to bleed erosia from godstones, filtering it through their bodies and manifesting as a specific ability in the physcial world. Conduits "bleed" erosia from godstones, with what rock type they can bleed determining on the lodestone. Excessive or prolonged bleeding and tempering results in shardsbane, a condition where the filtered erosia can crystallise within your own body which can spread and eventually lead to death.
There are three Castes of conduit which are based the type of lodestone and power granted: (names are working titles)

1 - Clastsmiths temper physical matter, altering its arrangement and structure rather than directly altering composition. There is no destruction or creation with Clastsmithing, only conversion of matter from one form into another without altering composition. Clastsmiths bleed sedimentary godstones. Clastsmithing is divided into three schools:
Shapers deal directly with the atomic structure of matter, negating and strengthening atomic bonds to disaggregate and recombine matter into new structures.
Melders are able to alter the state of matter, instantly changing a solid to a gas or even plasma while retaining the initial composition.
Mimics possess the ability to copy the physical properties of matter directly onto their skin.
All three schools share similar limitations and necessities. The most prominent of these is proximity to the target. In order to temper a material a Clastsmith must have an affinity for and proximity to that material. For instance, if a Clastsmith wanted to Shape or Meld oak, then they must first be in physical contact with some oak. Once they begin to temper, their abilities will allow them to temper any object that possesses the same molecular structure as that oak i.e. any other oak in the room. The extent of this tempering bubble depends on the quantity of erosia bled.
Mimics on the other hand, need constant contact with their material, which they often achieve through the wearing of jewellery of different materials or through swallowing/inhaling mixtures, meaning that substance is in constant internal contact. E.g. a Melder could liquidise something, allowing a Mimic to ingest and then mimic that substance.

2 - Fluxweavers temper energy and are grouped into Plutonics and Volcanists based on whether their abilities focus energy within themselves or externally. FLuxweavers bleed igneous godstones.
Plutonics are able to absorb and release energy in their own bodies. By absorbing the heat from a fire, they are able to focus and release the power through enhancing a physical or cognitive attribute.
The level of energy a Plutonic can absorb and use depends on their own personal experience. In order to temper energy, a Plutonic must have experienced that form of energy, gaining a flavour for it. A Plutonic wishing to temper the hear from a blaze must have experienced an equal or larger energy source of the same type otherwise their bodies will not be accustomed, and they will experience the effects of exposure – e.g. burnt.
Volcanists temper external energy sources. They are able to drain and convert energy sources, adding to existing sources to amplify their power. Volcanists are able to store harnessed energy in external objects or “over-charge” them to create explosions or other effects. These source of stored energy can be tempered by Plutonics. Volcanists are able to convert their own energy sources, but since they cannot be amplified this is dangerous, with Volcanists often being referred to as “whistlers” due to their ability to safely amplify sources with their own sonics.
Like Plutonics, Volcanists must have experienced the energy source they wish to temper, but since they are not directly absorbing it into themselves, they do no need to have been affected by it.

3 - Warpwrights temper space, locally warping it. Warwprights can bleed metamorphic godstones.
This is where I need advice. I want three abilities here, two will likely be expanding and contracting dimensions, but I'm struggling to come up with a third. Any suggestions on this and any limitations? Please ask questions as it will help me expand and develop my system. Thanks.

2023.03.22 13:25 17vulpikeets [Angron: The Red Angel] A Daemonette Tempts a Space Marine

I wanted to share another banger passage from Angron: The Red Angel. Leidis is a renegade Space Marine who has abandon his Blood Angels successor chapter and is now aboard the World Eater's flagship Conqueror. Thanks to some meddling by the Grey Knights the ship is overrun by demons of Slaanesh, turning a chaotic situation on the ship into an insane bloodbath. A daemonette corners Leidis and tries to lure him into Slaanesh's embrace. I want to share this passage because it shows just how tantalizing a demon's offer can be.

'Yes,' the daemonette whispered. Its voice was sultry and hard-edged, gently coaxing and subtly cruel. 'You have always appreciated artistry, haven't you, Leidis.'
Leidis nodded, his eyes lost in the allure of its form. ' do you know my name?'
The creature gave him a bewitching smile of fish-comb teeth. 'It was not for the crime of slaughter that your ignorant brothers cast you from their home. No. It was for the joy you took in it.'
Leidis stared dumbly. His rapture deepened.
It was so obvious, when it was put to him in such dazzling simplicity, he could not believe he had never considered himself in that light before.
'You are a child,' it said sympathetically, mockingly. 'It is no fault of yours that you did not seek us out of your own desire. It is only unhappy chance that led you into the company of Arkhor the Redbound and his crude worship of blood. It is he, not you, who set your path. It might easily have been another, and it is not too late to find the true delight of slaughter.' It extended a pale lilac claw smeared in transhuman offal.
Leidis pulled his gaze from the daemonette's. He looked at the outstretched hand.
Beyond it lay a disembowelled corpse, so thoroughly remade by the needs of the creature's art that Leidis did not immediately recognize it. He blinked to clear his eyes and to reset his still-glitching lenses, working his mouth to revive his horribly parched tongue.
The warrior, unsurprisingly, did not answer.
Leidis had never seen a Space Marine more dead. The lavender-skinned siren crouching between them was wearing a good proportion of his insides, as a mortal might don a robe.
'You would be welcomed into the carnivals of excess, Ortan Leidis, celebrated as a prodigal son returned and a shining example to all such wayward souls. You would be embraced as a brother. Please,' it said, though Leidis did not feel it was truly asking for his permission. 'Allow us to show you the delights of the paths not taken. The Dark Prince knows better than to deny his servants the sensation they crave.'
Leidis' mouth opened and closed without forming a sound.
The sight of Strykid lying there, defiled and profaned in the name of art, unsettled something deep in him. Strykid had been the least of Leidis' brothers, but he had been a brother.
He tried to find the words to deny it.
Any words.
He looked inside himself for the familiar anger, the rage with which to throw the creature's temptations back in its hideously perfect face, but it was not there.
What if the creature was right?
If only Arkhor had been able to offer him the Butcher's Nails.
What if he-
There was a loud bang followed by the bursting of something vacuously ripe as his temptress' head exploded.
Even that, Leidis noted, did it balletically. Too absorbed by the inherent beauty of its death to be startled by the unexpected suddenness of it, he watched as blood and brain and bone fanned out into an abstract art form that made part of him yearn to put a bolter in his mouth and emulate it.

2023.03.22 13:25 RoboNinjaPirate Review of 7541pcs Star Wars Millennium Falcon UCS Compatible 75192 from Joy

I ordered it here
Manufacturer is King
I got the version with the stand, cost was 276.98 after shipping.
Shipping took a little while, but it was in the middle of the holidays, so to be expected. Ordered 12/28, delivered on 1/19
The instruction guide I got appeared to be an official lego one, but it was kinda beat up - not sure if it was secondhand, but it worked fine.
All pieces were there, in numbered bags which was great. This set would be WAY too big to have the bags unsorted. There were some cases where a few random bits from bag 1 are leftover and end up being used in bag 3 or 4 - keep a misc. parts bin or something.
As far as I can tell, this is exactly the same build as the name brand, it's a really amazing set.
Don't plan on getting this thing done in a day, or even in a week. I took over my dining room table for several weeks, working a bit here and there.
Definitely have help getting the stand attached if you decide to do this.
I would definitely reorder from joy again in the future.

2023.03.22 13:24 Huge_Abies_6799 Idea

So i don't know if it's something you already have thought about but A rating system to rate different work out plans would be nice so you could sort by "stars" or "points" also for newer people so they kinda know which ones to look for Also a recommendation list where some of the highest rated plans are also have someone with good knowledge look though a couple and put on there as well and maybe being able to label the work out plans as either beginner or advanced and such So if youre a beginner you can look for beginner plans and if you're further in your training journey but maybe looking for some inspiration you can look for that Just some quick thoughts I might be an idiot and all this is trash but might as well throw it out there I like the app haven't used it for long but the idea of it is really cool and i love the fact there isn't 8 different pay walls it's easy and simple So thank you for that

I also enjoy high school/college settings, but I'd love to see more stories with settings beyond that!
1000 Stars and Not Me are already on my to-watch list for that reason, but beyond that I don't know any English-subbed ones. I was excited for My Ride but it doesn't seem to have English subs :"(
Thank you!! If this had been asked before, I would appreciate a link to the thread -- I've tried searching but didn't find any.
Edit: Also, we all know howww much Thai BL loves engineering students, but how about graduated/working engineers? Is there any series with that?

2023.03.22 13:21 the4bestgame Demonic Killer idea

Heyall! I was thinking. We have killers that kill you in unqiue ways (Onryo, Shape, Pig) Killers that hook you in unique ways (Executioner) Killers that damage you in unique ways (Plague) what about a killer that messes with gens.
KILLER: The Demon
The Demon is a 4.6 killer with a 50 meter terror radius. They are a large imposing demon that can be seen over most loops. Their power is Original Sin, which allows them to find hiding survivors and slow down progression. Their adept perks are Pride, Envy, and Hex: Greed
Original Sin
Active Ability: Corrupting Touch
The Demon channels for 1 second in front of an object a survivor can interact with (Pallet, Totem, Gen, Chest, Window, ECT) Doing so uses up a charge which are regained every minute. The Demon can curse up to 5 objects this way.
When a survivor tries to interact with one of these objects the entity will block it and they will scream, becoming incapacitated and 5% hindered for 15 seconds. The object will remain for 30 seconds and objects blocked in this way will have their aura's revealed to The Demon.
Special Interaction: Banishing Ritual
When the Demon spawns into the game, both exit gates will become blocked for the whole game. In order for the survivors to escape they instead need to banish The Demon. They can do so by finding 4 crimson candles hidden in chests across the map. A candle has a 50% chance to spawn from each chest and the odds are weighted like Pig boxes to ensure at least half the boxes have a candle. Whenever a generator is completed all chests will close and can be reopened for another chance at a candle. If 5 generators are completed then all chests will restock every minute.
Special Items: Crimson Candle
Whilst holding a candle a survivor is oblivious. If dropped on the ground it will burn out and be destroyed after a minute. The survivor can hold the interact button when holding a candle to start to create a ritual circle. When one candle is placed down the killer will hear a loud noise but will not get a location. When the next candle is placed the Aura of the survivor who placed it will be revealed 5 seconds later. Then the third candle is placed the killer will receive a proc of killer instinct at the location, and when the 4th candle is placed the killer will loose the game.
If the killer finds the ritual circle they can channel for 15 seconds per candle to destroy them, encouraging survivors to hide their ritual circles well and place the last two candles down quickly.
Iridescent Addon
Closed portal: "Even hell doesn't them it, we're stuck with them" The exit gates are no longer blocked at the start of the trial. Survivors interacting with cursed objects now take a health state of damage and gain a deep wound if they are healthy.
Torn Wings: "They know what goodness is like, they will use it against you" Interacting with a cursed object makes you exposed for 1 minute. If you heal or unhook another survivor in that time or they heal or unhook you, they will become exposed as well.
"Don't worry guys, I can take him"
You become obsessed with one survivor.
This perk gains a token every time your obsession escapes chase, giving them a 2%/4%/6% slower repair and heal speed when working with other survivors, at 3 Stacks (Maximum) They also suffer from blindness and obliviousness. A survivor taking a protection hit will become the new obsession, resetting the tokens.
"Drop that med kit for me, don't you know I need it more?"
Reveal the aura of survivors within 2/4/6 feet of another survivor that has an item of better or equal rarity
Hex: Greed
Every time a survivor opens a chest gain a token. For each token the opening speed of chests is increased by 25% but the any survivor that opens a chest becomes 3% hindered for each chest they have opened.

2023.03.22 13:21 Pretend-Adeptness-96 I have been a PreCog all my life

As I have been saying, I am a 55m and I have been a PreCog all my life, this is my attempt to save people besides myself. My safety is never in question.
I revealed to my family and friends in June of 2022 that I was a time traveler via documents, FB messages, etc... After that I started posting in reddit timetravel but I didn't know about removing posts so that was some chaos I had to smooth out.
In my third post I announced:
There is a time traveler who I will call “J” and she is disrupting the normal state of time and space.
J has the ability to communicate to us all. I am not special in that regard. She communicates via dreams/visions and I can tell the difference.
I am sorry if this is disjointed, if it helps think of the movie Memento).
J does not see time like I do, so she may not present things in order from our perspective... we good, things make sense at the end.
J is constantly trying to make this easier to understand for everyone to understand and she is constantly fine tuning things to get enough to understand. Her plan is for our descendants get to the stars. She keeps jumping back to her train station, making changes to try to get you to understand.
As near as I can tell she needs the help of our descendants, but I do not know how true that is, as I do not trust her.
This was how I started it my very first try....
If you do not have a physics background that is fine. I will not get into a physics lesson. But, I do have one ask.
If you do know someone with a physics background, ask them if what I am describing is possible if the MWI theory was true. What it would mean if there actually was an infinite number of timelines and you had the ability to move between them.
How many are thinking LOL?
This was the issue with a previous timeline… we had trouble with this part.
Nobody got it in time, so things went dark.
That is ok my timeline fam, hopefully infinite universes get widely understood this go around as J uses the infinite part to try to make it easier to understand…
Now I don’t have to spend much time on MWI.
Adapt, learn and repeat.
I will use movies as examples as much as possible to make it as easy to understand for as many as possible.
Infinity of universes examples are in the the awesome movie Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. There is also the awesome movie Everything, Everywhere All at Once, and how they represented the infinite of universes.
The only thing I want you to focus on is universes and the infinity of the choices.
That part is so true(infinity). J claims that there are no sausage universes, we are never rocks, we are never paint, or any of the other things. It is an infinity of different versions of us all slightly different. She literally has infinite number of possibilities, but the light makes it easier. I have not looked at them all, it takes me forever to peer into one.
I have been calling the timelines but others want to call them universes, multiverse, etc...
We are talking about the same thing. The universe is affected by the flow of time, and I can be outside the boundaries of this universe projected into the Yeoh Dimension which lets me 'turn around' and look at the infinite of universes, they all move evenly, steadily following the march of time... so I call them timelines.
A timeline is a single universe from the HumanVerse.
The HumanVerse is a subset of the infinity of universes, to be part of the HumanVerse the timeline must contain human life.
I am a human and give 0F about timelines that do not have us.
If you see me use the word timelines, if you want to think universe, multiverse, whateverse... we good. It is the infinity part I need you to be thinking about, the infinity of options J has.
Now I want you to think what it would mean if there actually was an infinite number of timelines AND you had the ability to move between them.
I figured out how to jump between timelines, jumping from a flesh suit body on one timeline and jumping to my body on another timeline.
I have had the ability since I was 9 when I fell face first into a bonfire and quickly left that timeline/universe.
The last timeline it was at this point in time when I started to get into the cat theory, I found out he was a pedo (I do not know what I do not know).
So I jumped back and created my Mötley Cat Theory to avoid carrying that name into the future.
The Mötley Cat Theory
This theory is like a certain quantum cat theory put forth by a known pedophile, with some important differences. The cat is not in the box with a device that has a 50% chance of killing it. The cat is in a box with a device that can affect the cat in an infinite number of ways, setting an infinite number of states that the cat can be in.
Obeying quantum theory, the cat is every state until the box is opened and the state of the cat is known. The state of the cat when it is put in the box is not in question, it is set, constant and establishes the direction of the flow of time… from the known state of the cat to the unknown infinite states of the cat.
The box that the Mötley Cat is put in is what I was taught to call a “Black Box”. In science and engineering, the term black box refers to any complex device for which we know the inputs and outputs, but we do not know the how of the black box, as the inner workings of the black box is unknown.
The output of the black box are the timelines that come out, and I illuminate the ones we want. J bundles them and I am on the timeline heading towards the light.
I hope enough people can understand the Mötley Cat theory and hope my blatant theft of this theory from the pedo doesn't ruffle too many feathers. Mi scusi!
The first crossroads is the upcoming debt ceiling and the Quantum Outcomes that result from setting that cat's state. I am just looking at the lit timelines and seeing the easiest path.
I humbly propose we just raise the debt ceiling now to avoid any issues.
The second crossroads is the upcoming election fight between Biden and Trump in 2024.
I am trying to avoid chaos, and to try to keep everyone calm. I think my proposal will do that.
Welp, time to see what spawns from this as we all travel forward in time.
I would suggest before making big decisions you should sleep on it and see what J sends you.
I am hoping to use Reddit to communicate.
If you find me as you go down the rabbit hole and think I want to meet anyone, you are wrong.
I am asking to be left alone, just like I said months ago. I am a 55m with heart troubles.
It is a paradox, I want to be left alone, yet I had to talk.
Grrrr. Damn you irony! Please respect my wishes.

2023.03.22 13:21 f1newsbot Fernando Alonso: How Aston Martin driver reached 100 podiums as Formula 1's ultimate underdog

Fernando Alonso has become just the sixth driver to reach 100 Formula 1 podiums, but the Spaniard has almost undoubtedly taken the most unconventional route to the milestone.
After the best part of a decade in the wilderness of F1's midfield, Alonso's stunning start to the 2023 season suggests he is finally back in the battle at the front of the grid.
A self-proclaimed "anti-hero" from the "dark side", embracing his character role as the villain, Alonso brought up his landmark podium in fittingly controversial style at Sunday's Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, .
Having shown that Aston Martin mean business with a series of stunning overtakes on George Russell, Lewis Hamilton and Carlos Sainz to finish third at the season opener in Bahrain, Alonso appeared to be cruising to a far more straightforward podium in Jeddah. However, confusion over the rules saw Alonso celebrate on the podium before being demoted by a 10-second penalty, after which he was finally reinstated following an Aston Martin appeal.
Along with Red Bull's domination, the 41-year-old's unexpected speed has been the story of the opening two rounds of the 2023 season. Alonso's performances have provided inspiration to just about every non-Red Bull driver on the grid, with Aston Martin's remarkable improvement after finishing seventh in last year's constructors' standings showing how quickly progress can be made.
Alonso won back-to-back world championships with Renault in 2005 and 2006, but a series of questionable moves around the paddock since then have limited his opportunities to compete for wins, let alone further titles - leaving him to assume a role of underdog while the likes of Sebastian Vettel, Hamilton and Verstappen have dominated.
Given the last of Alonso's 32 race wins came in 2013, the penultimate campaign of his five-year stint with Ferrari, most thought his hopes of adding to that tally were all but over, but now a fairy-tale ending to a decorated career appears possible.
We take a look back at the highs and lows of his career.
Alonso's career remarkably started before McLaren rookie Oscar Piastri was born, back in 2001 at Minardi.
The Italian-based team, which still exists now as AlphaTauri having been bought by Red Bull and brought under their umbrella as a junior outfit to the current constructors' champions, certainly could have done with that sort of investment when Alonso was around.
There was very little money available to spend on development, and Alonso apparently helped to bolt pieces of the car together to make sure it was ready in time for the first race in Australia, where he would finish 12th.
At a time when points were only available to the top six finishers, Minardi and Alonso went the entire season without scoring, with a 10th place finish at Hockenheim his best effort.
There were also eight retirements for the Spaniard, highlighting the deficiencies of the model he was attempting to compete with.
Alonso's first taste of Formula 1 was undoubtedly with a genuine backmarker, and came at a time when the lack of a budget cap meant little teams had next to no chance of competing with the big players.
Race wins - 0
Podiums - 0
It was only a one-season stay - not for the last time in his career - for Alonso, as he departed Minardi to become test driver at Renault, whose team boss Flavio Briatore was also Alonso's manager, and had been the one to spot his talent as a go-karter.
At a time when drivers were generally not given their breakthroughs into F1 at the young ages we see today, the 22-year-old Alonso was generating plenty of attention for both his youth and the fact he was Spain's first driver in the sport.
This meant that when he took a maiden pole position before going on to claim his first podium at just the second race of the season in Malaysia, the excitement increased. Next time he claimed a pole position, in August at the Hungaroring, he would convert it to a victory, making him at the time youngest driver to win a Grand Prix.
Not only was there a new star in the sport, but he was delivering for a team in Renault that weren't part of the establishment, and were looking to break up the domination of Ferrari and Michael Schumacher, which they would finally do in 2005.
Alonso took advantage of a poor Ferrari season to quite comfortably beat McLaren's Kimi Raikkonen to the championship, but the race that epitomised his first title-winning season was in Imola, where the Spaniard held back a charging Schumacher in a nail-biting climax where the Ferrari was the quicker car.
Under pressure from the seven-time world champion and driver widely considered to be the sport's greatest of all time, Alonso held strong, setting down a marker for the remainder of the season.
It's fair to say that 2006 was the more impressive of Alonso's back-to-back title-winning campaigns, as this time he went toe-to-toe with Schumacher, who had won five successive titles going into the 2005 season.
Schumacher had announced that he would retire at the end of the season, and came into the campaign with huge motivation to end his career in fairy-tale fashion.
Alonso looked to have put that dream to bed as he won six of the first nine races - and finished second in the other three - to establish a huge advantage in the standings, but Schumacher would fight back with five wins in the next seven races to set up a tense finale.
However, Alonso would keep his cool under huge pressure once more, winning the penultimate race of the season in Japan before finishing second in Brazil to seal the title.
Race wins - 15
Podiums - 37
On paper, it wouldn't seem the most logical decision to leave a team with which you'd just won two successive titles, but that's exactly what Alonso did as he moved to McLaren to drive alongside a rookie named Lewis Hamilton.
The decision did turn out to be a mistake, but not in the way that anyone expected.
In one sense, the move to McLaren was on the money - the Woking-based team competed for the title with Ferrari while Renault were only the fourth-quickest team.
In every other sense, it was a disastrous chapter in Alonso's career that saw tensions flare between him and his team, not least with McLaren boss Ron Dennis and Hamilton.
Arguably, this was the first time in Alonso's career where he was the establishment and not the young outsider - that role fell to Hamilton, with whom he fought for the 2007 world championship.
The pair squabbled and lost each other points, before eventually finishing the season tied, just one point behind the title winner Kimi Raikkonen of Ferrari.
"I think that the fallout with Lewis in 2007, where they fell out so spectacularly, basically gifted Kimi that title and it took him away from McLaren," Sky Sports F1's Karun Chandhok said.
"Then Lewis won the championship in 2008, so that's two years there where Fernando should've, would've, could've."
Alonso would leave under a cloud after one year, returning to Renault and giving up the chance to compete for titles.
Race wins - 4
Podiums - 12
The second time around with Renault felt like a bit of a placeholder, with the French team fairly uncompetitive.
Back in his favoured position as the underdog, Alonso took two victories in 2008 against the odds, albeit with one of them coming under controversial circumstances at the Singapore Grand Prix, with his team-mate Nelson Piquet Jr crashing at a convenient time,
The 2009 season would see no wins for Alonso, and just the one podium in Singapore, before he moved onto a new team - this time, it was for a prancing horse.
Race wins - 2
Podiums - 4
Ferrari, the team that all F1 drivers want to race for, was the team that Fernando Alonso remained with for the longest period of time.
Alonso battled with Red Bull and Sebastian Vettel for the title between 2010 and 2012, missing out on glory in the final races in both 2010 and 2012 despite some scintillating drives.
A famous statistic about Fernando Alonso is that If he had scored 11 more points across his F1 career, he could be a five-time world champion, missing out by fine margins in 2007, 2010 and 2012.
In essence, his time at Ferrari was one of 'what ifs' as he competed against the metronomic Vettel, with a Ferrari that was generally weaker than the Red Bull.
In 2014, at the beginning of the hybrid engine era, Ferrari's car was not up to scratch and Alonso began to look elsewhere and would move on a 2015, a decision that Chandhok believes was premature.
"Okay, at the time, Ferrari were pretty miserable in 2014 - but it came good."
Ferrari would win three races in 2015 with Sebastian Vettel, who replaced Alonso in the scarlet car before taking the fight to Mercedes in 2017 and 2018.
"I still believe Fernando would've won the championship in 2018 at Ferrari that year," Chandhok added.
Race wins - 11
Podiums - 44
While Ferrari were returning to contention, Alonso had opted for a surprise reunion with McLaren, with Hamilton having moved on to Mercedes.
2015 was a reunion for McLaren in two respects - Honda, with which it had had fantastic success in the late 1980s and early 1990s, and Alonso, with whom they'd had a falling out.
While it was a reunion and world champion driver line-up of Jenson Button and Fernando Alonso, which had lots of promise, it delivered a horror show of slow cars, engine failures and frustrated radio messages that led to a messy divorce with Honda and a move to Renault power in 2018.
The engine performance had clearly been a big problem for McLaren, with Alonso making no secret of where he thought the blame lay as he used his team radio messages to make public statements.
"Driving with this, looking like amateurs", "this is embarrassing" and "GP2 engines" all come to mind.
While Honda's engine was not up to standard, it became clear that underlying poor car performance was also a factor as McLaren still languished in the midfield in 2018.
Though being the underdog is his style, this was a step too far at this stage of his career for a frustrated, helpless Alonso, and so he left McLaren and retired from Formula 1.
Race wins - 0
Podiums - 0
As one of the greatest and most adaptable drivers in motorsport history, Fernando Alonso took the time away from Formula 1 to compete in other series, including the Indy 500, the Dakar Rally and Le Mans 24h.
He was an outsider, a rookie again, and with Toyota, he won the World Endurance Championship.
Alonso still had what it took to compete at the top of motorsport, so when in 2020 Sebastian Vettel left Ferrari, creating a domino effect in the driver market, it was no shock to see Alonso interested in returning to Formula 1.
Having already raced for the team in its Renault guise on two occasions, Alpine was the natural team for Alonso to return to when he came out of retirement in 2021.
The team had been hovering at the front of the midfield, but were unable to push on from that position even with Alonso's expertise.
While he did return to the podium at the 2021 Qatar GP, Alonso couldn't compete for victory - and his career looked to be winding down in mediocre fashion.
But Vettel announcing his retirement midway through the 2022 season would trigger an explosion in the driver market, leaving Alonso with one more opportunity.
Alpine weren't willing to give Alonso a two-year contract, so he went to a team that would. Alonso left describing Alpine "like family" but admitted that the lack of faith from the team was a reason he left.
"It seems that I have to be evaluated every year because of my date of birth," Alonso said, having just turned 41. "It was a bit strange to me and other teams think differently and they trust in my abilities."
It was clear the spirit of the young Spaniard trying to prove his worth at Minardi 19 years earlier was still very much present.
Race wins - 0
Podiums - 1
Lawrence Stroll and Aston Martin had faith in Alonso, and gave him the two-year contract that he wanted.
Given their well-known desires to things on their own terms, many had concerns about Alonso and his new boss Lawrence Stroll's relationship.
However, two races and two podiums in, it appears as though this could be Alonso's type of team - they're an enigma and an unexpected force to be reckoned with that are disturbing the establishment.
Aston Martin are beating Mercedes, the team who supply them with an engine and other hugely significant parts of their car, while the Spaniard has also overcome the might of Ferrari.
While they are well-funded now, Aston Martin carry an underdog mentality with staff still around from their their previous guises as Jordan, Force India and Racing Point, who competed as less wealthy outfits that could occasional steal a race beneath the noses of giants.
As Sky Sports F1's Simon Lazenby put it: "Fernando is always effective, whatever he does he will drag the best out of that car.
"I think if you put everyone in equal machinery, I can't see him being far off Lewis or far off Max Verstappen.
"But Fernando has been operating at that level for 20 years. Fernando relishes being the underdog."
In a season where Red Bull's pace looks scary for the opposition, Alonso has just the car and team to play the role he loves best in the high-speed theatre of Formula 1.
If you didn't know who he was, now you do. After brining up a 100th podium, Alonso's next challenge is to find an elusive 33rd race victory. Can he do it in 2023? Find out live on Sky Sports F1.

2023.03.22 13:20 peachyy-pie My [25F] boyfriend [25M] got upset with me for not initiating sex

My bf had a sudden business trip. His work is very stressful and he rarely has business trips. I offered to come along to keep him company and help him de stress after work. We have been together almost a year, our relationship is fairly healthy and we rarely fight. We had planned I would relax and spend time alone while he works and then we would spend time together when he is off. The planned trip was 3 days, we booked me on the same flights as him. We flew in late sunday night and were to fly out wednesday evening. He was very stressed Sunday when we arrived and we spent the evening getting supplies and trying to calm down.
We didn’t expect he would work a 12 hour day the first day, a 14 hour day the second. I had previously told him I would perform sex acts when he got home. He brought me lunch on his lunch break and took a nap. I had initiated sex, he declined. later that night when he came home 4 hours later than expected, he told me his work wanted to go to dinner. I quickly changed and we met them for dinner. Afterwards we went on a walk to the beach briefly and looked at the stars. when we returned to the room we laid down. he was on his phone some, and we both agreed our stomachs hurt and the restaurant was questionable. we were just talking.
He was giving me kisses and I didn’t initiate sex in that moment, I continued to talk with him about our days. I was very sunburnt as well. I was still planning on sex but I didn’t want to rush it, needed to get in the mood. He did make an effort to pull me on top of him but he grabbed my leg where I had a bad sunburn and I told him it hurt.
He then made a comment “so are we smashing or nah?” this comment turned me off as he doesn’t typically speak to me that way. I expressed this was off-putting. He got somewhat angry with me, saying he didn’t have time “you have been blue balling me a lot lately, don’t do that going forward.” I started getting upset because it felt like all he wanted was sex from me. I responded saying he had declined me for sex 3 times in the last three days. he got increasingly angry saying i promised him sex and I wasn’t giving it to him. i got more upset and began to cry. he said he didn’t even want to sleep in the same bed as me and said he didn’t have time for my feelings. I was shocked as this was out of character, he never speaks to me this way. i continued to cry and say things “are you serious?” he continue to make advances/ touch me me while i was crying and asking me for sex. I continued to cry and told him this didn’t feel right, he was disrespecting me. He told me he loved me, he was sorry for upsetting me but he was needing a release and rest. I ended up agreeing to sex and we had sex twice in 15 minutes. I was still visibly upse after sex. I expressed the comment he doesn’t have time for my feelings upset me even more and he denied saying it. he said that if he did that then “there is something wrong with him” but he does not recall saying it. he said loves me and that i’m his soul mate and he cares for my feelings deeply. he doesn’t want me to have memories of him saying that because he did not mean it. I calmed down and we went to sleep.
the next day he barely texted me throughout the day which i realize was due to his work, i was left feeling that he was still mad. He didnt text me much before he came home after 14 hours. our dinner plans/evening was ruined as we didn’t have any time to spend together before he needed to sleep. i was leaving the next day and we wouldn’t see each other. He had a bad day and told me about it while we got fast food. he repeatedly said that i wasn’t acting normal and asked me if i was mad at him. i told him i was upset he had to work so long but i understand its out of his control. we returned to the room and he asked me if i was leaving him because I was acting so weird saying i must not be aware of my behavior. i told him i may be trying to get over what happened the night before. he went on a rampage about how i’m so ungrateful as i get to sit on the beach all day while he is working and he brought me food yesterday and how i am making him more stressed than his work already is and I shouldn’t have come with him. I was very upset and said it made me uncomfortable that he still tried to have sex with me while i was crying and it made me afraid of future issues with sex because he clearly expects it. he went on another rampage about how i promised it to him and he can’t deal with me not following through. i told him i was going to follow through until i felt disrespected. he didn’t empathize with me and called me crazy and told me again that i shouldn’t have come. he told me it was okay if i change my mind about sex but i have to communicate. i felt i did communicate and that he rushed into it/ objectified me. There will be times in life where circumstances interfere with sex and i can’t be demonized for it.
he eventually did empathize but then told me he was going to go crazy if i left him and threw in my face again that i get to relax while he is working in a high stress environment. i told him it seems he resents me for that and i should leave. he was frantic about me leaving him I ended up consoling him and telling him i wasn’t going to leave but this cannot happen again, he cannot make me feel that way and i’ll do better communicating if he does as well. He said he wants a family and to marry me and that he wants to get passed this.
What do I do? I love him and I want this to work
TLDR: I [f25] told bf [m25] that we would have sex after work and he is angry with me for not initiating it when he deemed I should have.
