Shitty Dark Souls is a community that celebrates the awesomeness, and often shittiness of the game Dark Souls, as well as the rest of the 'Souls' universe. Whereas /DarkSouls is a community around Dark Souls that is more discussion oriented in nature, /ShittyDarkSouls is about playful, and charming comics that mock and/or poke fun at the Dark Souls universe.

2023.05.28 15:20 _Master_CJ_ Removing Parrot OS & Re-Installing Ubuntu - Daily Driver For Working & Gaming

As the title says I am removing my Parrot OS as I don't use it as much as I used to. If anything I have gone back to using the most common method of using a VM (Virtual Machine), whether that is using Kali Linux or Parrot OS. The other part being that I am re-installing Ubuntu which I have been using a lot more recently. So I decided to remove Parrot OS and re-install Ubuntu which I have been using for a while now (well since my last post basically - after installing Ubuntu) but not consistently. I am aware that there are many other posts like this one, but as a person who likes to do thigs properly and some what by the books I want to make sure I get this right so I don't have to mess with it again.

2023.05.28 15:20 angrokitten Why are there almost no 3d horror movies that are good?

3d films have been on the media for as long as I've known one but even if we could literally create anything in a software— why are there a few or none good horror films which were done in a software? And it has so much potential too, you can literally create any creature, ghost, aliens you want in the software but it really surprised me to search for a genuinely creepy film that's done entirely in 3d. What are your thoughts about this?
Would love to know any 3d movies which I might not be aware of.

2023.05.28 15:20 ScrubsAllDayLong 28M - Weight loss/activity partners

Hey everyone, looking for someone who is interested in being accountability partners in regards to weight loss through workouts and healthy eating habits.
Earlier this year I was getting into a routine of using my treadmill for daily running workouts, and am looking to get back into that along with 30 minute circuit workouts as well. Now that it is summer I enjoy playing/practicing golf and can use my gym there post golf to work it on a consistent basis.
Due to my job and its travel, hours, and road miles it is challenging to have a strict schedule for eating and workouts as the day can change on a whim, but I need to be better held accountable for carving out time still.
As for being a partner for others, I am generally a very positive person and outlook on life, am a former collegiate athlete who has a strong concept of workout plans and balancing them, and like to think I can hold conversations easily throughout the day or week if there’s anything else on your mind you’d like to chat about!
Look forward to hearing from others :)

2023.05.28 15:20 abcdedcbaa Bi-erasure, gay gaze, etc.

I just want to vent out because I really couldn't get this off my chest. It's not really about just a casual joke but how it triggered again my dislike on gay culture. Even if I don't have a hetero SOGIE (I'm sexually fluid), it has been hard for me to belong to even just a small gay clique because of ignorance and unkindness among themselves.
About two weeks ago my brother invited me and my sisters to drink. We went out and drank in a bar and we were really enjoying ourselves specially because we haven't hung out for quite a while now, I mean, at least 7 years since we last drank together. After drinking in a bar he invited us to go to another bar that has a drag show. I was really excited because I've recently just been converted into a drag race fan after watching the first run of RPDR PH early this year.
Tbh the show had always been problematic for me because 1. I had never been able to dig it, same thing why I don't understand cosplaying or period dramas. I understood the discipline of costume and its semblance to more fine artsy form of fashion but I always knew it wasn't for me. 2. When I first attempted to watch it, I just stopped the video when I saw the muscular crew in their underwear. Sometimes even being catcalled by contestants themselves. I felt a bit offended for them. Like isn't this the same reason why we are hating on shows like Willy Revillame's: women in two-piece in the background, gyrating for cis men's objectifying eyes. Gay gaze is as oppressive as male gaze. Really hated it and I still couldn't get past it.
Anyway so we went to the place-- I already forgot its name. It's at the back of Rapture tho I'm not even sure if that place is still running.-- It seemed like we went there too early because there are still just a handful of people there. The hosts even noticed and greeted us. Also apparently before the show, a pair of transwomen hosts entertain the goers and would ask them to sing karaoke on stage. But before one sings, the hosts would interview you.
Time flew and we were enjoying the kanal humor of the hosts interviewing the people until they pressured our table to sing. We decided that our brother should sing and he obliged without any reluctance, we all grew up signing karaoke and it's part of family tradition anyway. On stage he was asked by the hosts usual questions: his name, about us siblings etc. eventually he was asked about his sexuality. Gays are always frizzy about other people's sexuality ano eventhough I still think it's supposed to be private. I remember a presscon where Tom Hardy was asked if he is bisexual. Instead of answering the question, he asked the journalist why he is asking a private question. If you think that Tom was just being sensitive, in extreme lengths, people just be outing other people.
My brother answered. We were all expecting the same answer: straight. But with a nervous tone he said he is bisexual. The face of my sisters when he said that. He is 34 years old and he just went out of the closet to us on stage. I was shocked but was really happy for him. Of course I always knew. My sisters never did. But I was happy that he finally had the courage to do that.
The host didn't know that and just went on with their question. I'm still silently celebrating in my head then they said the joke. "Bi now, gay later". Then proceeded to expand on that saying that men are just claiming that they are bisexual until they become exclusively gay once they get comfortable.
You know what this is? It's the same close-minded homophobic jokes of straight men about gay people. Straight men only like women so they think men liking men isn't natural. Gay people can only think that, because they only like men, bisexuality shouldn't be real. Denying bisexuals of their own identity while complaining that this fucked up society is giving them the same hell. Do not tell me that this is just a joke and I should just take it lightly because we all know that it's a genuine perspective from them told in a humorous manner. There's a difference. This ticks me off because this is the same reason why my brother took this long to come out as bisexual and had to endure years of self-shaming. The community that's supposed to accept him always say shit like this. And places like those, LGBT bars, are supposed to be a safe space, not just a haven to be non heteronormative but to be yourself, not just being gay.
I've read a study few years ago that closeted men are most at risk to contract HIV for so many factors. And a lot of bisexual men are closeted because even the community itself banishes their identity. The bi-erasure front comes directly from gay people. Bisexuals are gays of the gays. The gays do to them what straight people do to gays. It's fucking ridiculous.
But what else do we expect? Even among gay people they do shit like "masc only" segregation or they don't even know what a real versa top is, or the peak bi-erasure thing where they define a gay as "bi" if he is "no trace" or discreet. What kind of uneducated kajologan is that? On top of that, in relation to the RPDR crew, gays encourage each other to catcall men specially online. I cringe when straight friends do this and I still cringe when gay do this. It's just so easy to hate people with penises.
I tried but eventually just gave up to have a feeling of belonging with this ignorant and toxic community. I know education depends on the economic status so I can still believe that this ignorance can't be blamed to urban poor gays but I also see and hear this from gay guys who have post grad, who have the means so I don't think it's an issue of education anymore but it's a systemic mindset embedded within the culture.
Of course all of this just went over the head of my brother and let go of the "joke". Im just happy that he enjoyed that night and was drunk AF he threw up on the stretches of Aurora Blvd.

2023.05.28 15:20 Responsible_Second32 How do you feel “proud”?

I’m four months on T and am becoming a hermit. I’m afraid to go out, be in crowded places and meet new people because I don’t want to be seen.
I have a lot of shame around not passing, looking gay, correcting folks, and just not being able to make it work as a cis woman. I live in a liberal city but was raised with the mindset of don’t stand out ever and keep your business to yourself. But it’s starting to feel like the choices are to either learn how to hate myself/my transness less or hide away for years till T makes it less noticeable. The right decision is obvious.
Folks who are louder and prouder than I—what did you do to make it there and where can I get some?

2023.05.28 15:20 ThrowRA-Zebra4665 I (44f) don't know if I'm being too sensitive, or if my partner's (45m) interactions with me are unhealthy.

Sometimes I think that I'd like to leave the relationship because I don't feel treated well and spend a ton of emotional energy defending myself. However, I feel like I'm always the one bringing up the issues (it makes me feel too critical) so I don't know if my expectations are too high. My parents are failures in the relationship area so I have no point of reference.
Throwaway account. My (44f) partner (45m) and I were married, we divorced, and got back together 7 years ago. We have a 12yo together and I have 3 adult children that he helped raise.
What's hard for me is even the smallest interactions feel shitty. I walk on eggshells a lot, but I don't know if I'm too sensitive or if this is something that is on him (I've tried, and he's definitely less rude to me than he used to be). I don't know what to do..we've had a fair amount of couples therapy (which is unbelievably exhausting) but this never seems to change.
Here's today's interaction as he leaves to see his family with our son as an example:
Him: We're going to the rapids this week.
Me: I don't know what the rapids are.
Him: rapids
Me: I still don't know
Him: just stares at me for 5 seconds in silence with a look on his face. "Rapids. (Slowly) R-a-p-i-d-s. Water. The river. Tubes.
Me: oh, okay.
He walks away.
(Context: they've never done that before, and we've never done it, so I wouldn't have even considered that tubing was what he was referring to).
Another example:
We discussed him getting therapy for himself too. He hadn't done anything about it since agreeing to it (again) in January. Yesterday in an argument I said that he still hasn't gotten therapy to help improve himself and he said, "OH, so are you allowing me to go to therapy alone?" This took me by surprise, as I've always been the one begging/pushing for him to. (He went last year for a few sessions but stopped because the therapist was insistent that he had narcissistic personality disorder.)
So, in January he said that he was going to see our couples therapist by himself. I said, "I'm a little uncomfortable that he's seen you twice alone and not me alone at all." (I said this because I thought that he was saying to me that he was going to start seeing our couples therapist as his primary too, and I could be totally wrong but I thought couples and individual should be different therapists). He said, "No, it's for him and I to talk about what I should do and for him to give me recommendations on a therapist." I said, "Gotcha. Make sure to check to see if he's in network with my new insurance." That was the extent of the convo (it's in text as I was traveling). That turned into him accusing me yesterday of not allowing him to go to that therapy appointment alone, and that's why he hasn't. That my "gotcha" wasn't a clear approval, and I obviously disapproved of that appointment. He still stands by this.
Yesterday he also said that I said two different things to him in the argument (I explained it two different ways after he got angry at what I said the first way and I tried to clarify) and he laughed and said that I'm gaslighting him.
The above examples are all what I'd call very typical.
I feel like I don't understand what this dynamic is and how I should approach things.
Eta: We are both educated and successful in our careers and work full time. I don't have a hearing disorder and do not have a difficult time communicating (referring to him spelling the word out for me)

2023.05.28 15:20 AstronautDecent4503 Weird insults from mom

I've been learning guitar, I play a few hours a day. Yesterday I was playing in my room and as usual she yelled in the dining table announcing lunch was ready. Even though we were just like 5 meters away I couldn't hear her in my room with my door closed, fan engine roaring and guitar singing. She yelled again and this time I heard, I came out and she said this, "are you possessed by a spirit or something doing that thing in there?" with an irritated expression.
Her wording made it sound like playing guitar is a shameful thing to do. Like I am addicted to it and that it's as bad as video games or drugs and it's just not something I should spend my time on. Out of nowhere I am ridden with this random guilt that doesn't even make sense.
Growing up she rarely praises me for anything (25 adult now. Yeah still living with her), she's always been critical and would beat me for petty things IN anger. It's totally stupid to feel guilty about playing guitar just bc she said that in disapproval. But I suspect it's bc of all these years of conditioning. She had too much power over me and I subconsciously fear her and care too much about her nonsense.
I am now very self conscious and uncomfortable when I play, bc it can be heard by her. I feel like I'm being shamed for playing guitar. Bizarrely she never ever addresses it, she never says that I'm playing guitar, she never says the word guitar. It's very strange but she knows what that is but she just avoids using the word like they are a taboo.
Same for indoor exercising. I used to do HIIT workout in my room and she could see the shadow of me jumping etc through the windows. I didn't tell her that I workout in my room but she apparently knows what I'm doing (jumping and I have yoga mat, dumbbells etc) but she never asks me about that. Sometimes that activity would somehow comes up in a conversation but she always makes it super vague and never explicitly says that I was exercising like it was a secret or something.
She's odd. When it comes to things she's not familiar with, including anything outside of her narrow existence that consists of buying groceries, making meals, watching TV drama, playing card games with her friends, gossiping about lives of her acquaintances, taking care of my sister's children, she doesn't talk. She knows guitar and music and a bunch of other things exist, but it's not in her vocabulary. Any attempt to educate her is futile. She also never says "thank you", "sorry" these basic phrases, dads the same btw. They NEVER use them. Never express their feelings, only talk about basic maintenance day to day life stuff. Under their influence I have trouble expressing my feelings, but unlike them I am not shy to thank a waiter for serving foods etc. I could be a drastically different person when I'm with them v.s. when I'm free and with other people outside family circle

2023.05.28 15:19 ryanlearyyyy Is she cheating? Need advice

Is she cheating? Need advice
Ok I need advice. I'm trying to figure out if she cheated or if I'm being paranoid. We have been together for 9 years, married 4 years. I have a strong gut feeling she cheated which I know is worth something but I don't have proof.
About her: she's 28, fit, cute, and a personal trainer at a large gym. She is incredibly outgoing and the life of every party. Literally everyone she meets loves her. She is so nice and laughs at everything. Unfortunately I think guys often interpret that as flirting even when she isn't. Still, she is very sexual and had 25 partners by the time she was 19, which is when we met.
We have an amazing relationship and we've been incredibly happy. We have a lot of freedom and live a very full life.
Now the story: This started about 3 years ago. So she starts working at this large gym. Of course everyone loves her, and she's a main character in the personal training department right away. She tells me stories after work, talks about the other trainers (mostly guys), all very innocent. I've never been threatened when she talks about other guys because she's so obviously not interested and because I'm quite a catch. Tall, muscular, very successful.
But then she starts talking about one trainer in particular, and her tone and body language are just different. Almost like she knows she shouldn't be talking about him. Like she's feeling me out.
He's older (40) but fit and decent looking as he's a personal trainer. She mentioned to me how he won a physique competition, and I just wasn't that impressed. I said I thought it was weird he's a trainer at 40yo and not married. She was quick to point out he's nice and has a gf. I 100% got a vibe this is a work crush.
Few weeks later we host a department party at our house and all the trainers come over. This guy approaches me and kind of sizes me up right away in the backyard asking about how far the property line goes (not a huge yard). He then goes on to say how wonderful my wife is and how she is a ray of sunshine and that I'm a lucky guy.
More weeks go by and he doesn't come up in conversation much like the other trainers do, which is odd, because they definitely talk, and they are definitely both main characters at the gym. When he does come up, again, it's not like when she talks about other guys. It's like she's walking on eggshells and watching my reaction.
Also weird is often times I'd look at her snapchat location while she's at work, and it would be a few blocks away from the gym in the neighborhood. I chalked it up to a bad approximate location. But now that I think about it, the snapchat location seems to be pretty laser accurate.
So this goes on for a year, then we move away for 2 years. We just moved back and joined the gym as members. We go to the gym together and everyone is so happy to see her. 15 min conversations everytime we bump into someone. A week or two later we are both lifting weights, and the guy is in the gym too. I catch him looking at me several times but he never approaches either of us which is very weird. Again she's been gone 2 years and everyone else comes running up. The next day she goes to the gym by herself and when she gets back, she tells me she saw him and they caught up and that he didn't want to interrupt our workouts the day before.
So far just a feeling, right? That's why I never asked. Well yesterday we were getting ready for the gym and I said we should fuck first as she was down to a sports bra and panties. She said let's do it after. I said how about before, during, and after? She laughed and said "during?" I said yea, there must be a good spot, what do you think off the top of your head? She immediately replied "idk, behind the basketball court.." she didn't have to think at all and wasn't trying to come up with ideas. She didn't throw it out there like that would be fun or crazy. Almost more like she stated it as fact.
So I said, oh whats back there? She said there is a personal training storage room but you have to be a trainer to get in.
This is what is finally making me think these can't be coincidences. I don't want to be toxic, but I checked her phone after this and she has innocent text history with lots of trainers, and while she does have his number, not one text? Why have his number then? I'd think they'd have texted about something innocent at least once.
Ok that's my story. Am I crazy? What should I do?

2023.05.28 15:19 Double-Revenue-9956 Why are companies so against their employees using ChatGPT?

Before anyone mentions, "data privacy, retention, OpenAI profiting off of your data, etc.," I personally see AI assistance as the way that 90% of white-collar jobs will function less than 10 years from now. All of the gripes that we see in the news in regards to company data privacy make sense, but I think within the next few years or so some real hard evidence will surface as to just how productive people who use new AI tooling in their workflows are compared to those who don't. As a software dev myself I work probably 4x faster on my personal projects (where I can use ChatGPT) versus at my day job (where it's outlawed).
What are companies trying to do in order to get on board? Is there some kind of data-safe alternatives I can tell my boss about?

2023.05.28 15:18 feelingstuck15 Family and friends interfering with a relationship

I recently went on a girly spa weekend. I somehow opened up to one of my girlfriends about the situationship I've been in for the past 6+ months. She said great, so do you think marriage is on the table? I said nah not really, we have talked about this, he doesn't want it, I probably don't want it either, for several reasons. Being quite religious, she was horrified.
After I came back from the trip, the guy started acting really weird and distant. My first thought was that she must have talked to him, but initially discounted that possibility as too crazy. After several days of almost no contact, despite me nagging him to tell me what's wrong and going through a rollercoaster of emotions, he finally admitted that he has "done some soul searching" and he thinks it's wrong for him to date me given that he doesn't want to marry me.
While he didn't mention my friend, it is very clear that she has talked to him behind my back (she has known him for longer than I have and has his contact info), but I'm not going to confront her about this. She clearly wanted what she thought was best for me. There was certainly no malicious intent behind this, such as her wanting to get together with the guy or anything like that.
As for the relationship, I have talked to him and I have done my best to reassure him that it's ok if we don't get married and told him why. I also tried to provide some context about my friend and where she is coming from. Now it feels like we are back to normal with the guy, hopefully. But I am still worried. Has anything like this happened to anyone (i.e. a family member or relative trying to interfere in a relationship in some way)? Did it have a lasting effect on your relationship?

2023.05.28 15:18 mythicalmags Venting

Sorry if this isn’t the place for this; I was googling my feelings and stumbled across this thread.
I currently have a job that is deeply unsatisfying, and I am so tired of people telling me “do what you love, and you’ll never work a day in your life.” This clearly isn’t true. If it was, no one would ever retire.
I genuinely cannot think of one career that would be fulfilling to me or make me okay with working 40 hours a week. When I think of the things I enjoy doing, none of those are work-related. I want to sit on my patio and watch the birds at my bird feeder. I want to lay in bed with my partner, laughing and drinking coffee. I want to take spontaneous drives to the lake or the seaside or the mountains. I want to cook elaborate meals for my family and best friends. I want to spend time playing with my baby niece. I just don’t desire labor.
Because I have to cram all of these activities into 2 days a week, I don’t have any time to just relax. My weekends are go-go-go. I am really starting to feel like I’m unraveling. I’m not even 30 and I already feel so depressed at the prospect of 30+ more years of this.

2023.05.28 15:18 reddits_aight Hidden mystery alarm going off. No notification or other way to turn it off/silence.

So I'm glad to see I'm not the only one with alarm issues here. I too have the issue of the alarm volume seemingly changing at random, but that's not what brings me here today.
This morning, and at least once before, I got an alarm that I did not set and with no notification (at full volume of course). It did match the time of one of my alarms, but that one was set to "off" and a custom sound, different than the one going off.
The mystery alarm did respond to changing the alarm volume, and it self-silenced after a minute without coming back since. It wasn't my default alarm sound (classic alarm) it was a softer, semi-dissonant chime, I'm not sure the name but it was a familiar alarm sound.
Anyway, just documenting in case someone else has or solved this issue.
BTW, I solved the alarm volume issue by setting an earlier alarm to finish with an Assistant Routine, with a custom phrase "set alarm volume to 100%". This was, at least my backup alarms will be 100% volume.

2023.05.28 15:18 AlyStar123 Reached coast FI. Want to buy a PPOR with cash. How much should I spend

Hello all, I reached my coast fire number of $1m. It’s grown to $1.3m since then. I have recently decided I would like to buy a house as I’m sick of renting and dealing with property managers, the uncertainty that comes with renting specially recently as rents continue to increase an vacancy rates are extremely low. I strongly believe now it now makes sense for me to buy - I don’t think I was ready to commit before but I recently had a change of heart.
I’m planning on buying a property outright in cash. What % of my net worth would you recommend I spend on a property so to get a decent asset that will hopefully maintain with inflation (and fingers crossed even grow in value) but also to ensure it’s a nice decent place but not too extravagant or something that can be financially stressful.

2023.05.28 15:18 AcidPaintbrush Last minute, but does anyone wanna go to Bridge City Sinners in Cambridge tonight?

Anyone here in Massachusetts?
I bought two tickets a month ago for the concert tonight, for my fiance and I. My son's grandparents on my side were going to pick him up for a couple weeks around this time anyways, so babysitting was planned for when I bought them.
Then plans changed, because my family is just like that and I should have known better than to buy tickets so far ahead. So my fiance didn't wind up asking for the night off, because we didn't think we could make it.
Then plans changed AGAIN, as my son's other set of grandparents decided they would come get him instead, both to help us out/give us a break and because they missed him anyways. But they just picked him up today so it's too late for my fiance to get the day off.
I want to go, I fucking love Bridge City Sinners. The music, the vibe, I saw them live as an opener for Days n Daze and that was my introduction to them. They blew me out of the water, I do not want to miss this.
But I also really don't want to go alone because I have hella anxiety and need at least one semi familiar person I can stick close to.
The concert is in like 9 hours. I don't know if anyone here is close enough to catch the show, or if anyone who is will see this in time. It's a long shot. But fuck it, I figured it couldn't hurt to give it a try.
Obviously I wanna chat for a bit first, just to scout for any red flags. I'm broke and 4 years sober, no one would get anything worthwhile robbing me anyways. (Diet sobriety, I still smoke pot, just nothing too crazy.)

2023.05.28 15:18 Lets_Play_AI_Fully Maybe I'm overreacting?

Our breeder seemed very good to us at the time but we've since noticed a few things missing that should have been done before and we overlooked due to the excitement of picking her up after waiting 3 weeks.
We didn't get any of the puppy food she was using before, like we was promised, so she's now got a bit of an upset tummy while she's adjusting to the new food and today I've realised we didn't get told when she was last wormed or had flea treatment so I've had to chase that update and get that all sorted.
(EDIT: wormed 3 times so far, last time 2 weeks ago at 6 weeks so she was due when we picked her a few days ago. FFS)
I'm going to be booking her into the vets for her final vaccination in a week as everything is almost up to date but it's not "perfect" and I''m starting to think we may be making a trip before then as she's not pooped today even though she's usually very regular and she has vomited a few times too over the last 4 days (only once a day and nothing excessive btw) after eating really fast.
I'm a little concerned, but her stools are fine when she's gone and she's drinking plenty, she's not lethargic or anything like that but I'd rather be safe than sorry so keeping a very close eye on her right now. We also have one of those indoor grass patches for toilet and she keeps eating the pigging grass so a very good chance that's what's causing her to be sick too.
She's not been anywhere she shouldn't have been to get sick fyi. We're in the UK too, so only normally do 2 vaccinations here and I think we worm dogs at slightly different intervals too for the record.
She also seems a tiny bit underweight but I've been feeding her a good amount for her weight/size of mixed wet and dry food. (She's 5kg and she's been having 500g of food per day right now in total) Perhaps I should feed her 4 times a day with slightly less food each time rather than 3 times.
I'm rambling a little but it's bothering me even if she doesn't seem to be bothered by anything.

2023.05.28 15:18 Fit_Sherbert3829 Diagnostic criteria for Autism Spectrum Disorder should be a bit more broad.

People with Broad Autism Phenotype should also benefit form therapy and services that people with ASD get, but that is only if they really need it. But, I want to start this conversation, because the topic could get more interesting, as I provided some sources that proofs Eikonabridge's point and my point.
Credit goes to Eikonabridge. https://wrongplanet.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=380673
There are concerns that the diagnostic criteria for ASD is already too broad, but the neurologically developed people defiantly hold the maturity.
It's desirable, because Broad Autism Phenotype describes an wider range of individuals who exhibit problems with personality, language, and social-behavioral characteristics at a level that is considered to be higher than average but lower than is diagnosable with autism *Some parts that I copied belongs to Very Well Health.
People who with wider range of individuals who exhibit problems with personality, language, and social-behavioral characteristics are considered to have some kind of developmental delay, and it's closely related to mild PDD-NOS. It's in the context of some kind of rare Pervasive Developmental Disorder or even undiagnosed Atypical Autism.
Here is what PDD-NOS means from DSM-4:
This category should be used when there is a severe and pervasive impairment in the development of reciprocal social interaction or verbal and nonverbal communication skills, or when stereotyped behavior, interests, and activities are present, but the criteria are not met for a specific Pervasive Developmental Disorder, Schizophrenia, Schizotypal Personality Disorder, or Avoidant Personality Disorder. For example, this category includes "atypical autism"—presentations that do not meet the criteria for Autistic Disorder because of late age at onset, atypical symptomatology, or subthreshold symptomatology, or all of these.
The only difference is that you don't need to have severe communication impermanent as a diagnostic criteria for ASD.
In fact, you can have milder form of ASD, and have neurotypical traits on time.
All you need is to meet during developmental stages are:
(Not everyone with ASD will have the same symptoms)
B. Restricted, repetitive patterns of behavior, interests, or activities, as manifested by at least two of the following, currently or by history (examples are illustrative, not exhaustive; see text):
  1. Stereotyped or repetitive motor movements, use of objects, or speech (e.g., simple motor stereotypies, lining up toys or flipping objects, echolalia, idiosyncratic phrases).
  2. Insistence on sameness, inflexible adherence to routines, or ritualized patterns of verbal or nonverbal behavior (e.g., extreme distress at small changes, difficulties with transitions, rigid thinking patterns, greeting rituals, need to take same route or eat same food every day).
  3. Highly restricted, fixated interests that are abnormal in intensity or focus (e.g., strong attachment to or preoccupation with unusual objects, excessively circumscribed or perseverative interests).
  4. Hyper- or hyporeactivity to sensory input or unusual interest in sensory aspects of the environment (e.g., apparent indifference to pain/temperature, adverse response to specific sounds or textures, excessive smelling or touching of objects, visual fascination with lights or movement).
Criteria A should be reserved when symptoms of ASD is more severe:
A. Persistent deficits in social communication and social interaction across multiple contexts, as manifested by the following, currently or by history (examples are illustrative, not exhaustive; see text):
  1. Deficits in social-emotional reciprocity, ranging, for example, from abnormal social approach and failure of normal back-and-forth conversation; to reduced sharing of interests, emotions, or affect; to failure to initiate or respond to social interactions.
  2. Deficits in nonverbal communicative behaviors used for social interaction, ranging, for example, from poorly integrated verbal and nonverbal communication; to abnormalities in eye contact and body language or deficits in understanding and use of gestures; to a total lack of facial expressions and nonverbal communication.
  3. Deficits in developing, maintaining, and understanding relationships, ranging, for ex-ample, from difficulties adjusting behavior to suit various social contexts; to difficulties in sharing imaginative play or in making friends; to absence of interest in peers.
There should be some changes in the diagnostic criteria for Autism Spectrum Disorder.

2023.05.28 15:17 RavenMarvel Scared to ask... but how expensive are repairs on central air, typically? In the hundreds or thousands? Also, what might cause loud (fan?) sounds, thermostat warning (we shut it off)

So, basically, we just bought a home at the end of March and it has central air...sort of. At first, the central air seemed fine. It turned on and was quiet etc. It started making grinding and high pitched sounds, sometimes when it would turn on and other times randomly. To me, it seems like the fan or blower or something else similar but I'm entirely clueless when it comes to HVAC. A week and a half ago, we had the system on and it seemed fine, but the thermostat started talking to us like a weather warning saying "ALERT! ALERT!". It was in the middle of the night and I was actually showering so I didn't hear everything else lol but it shut down and we've kept it off since. The smart thermostat restarted itself at the time, also. We haven't gotten it checked because it's $200 just to look at it and I'm worried about wasting $200 if I can't afford the repairs. I thought it would be a few hundred dollars, but my mother scared me saying it will be thousands. Any idea what might be causing it and could bad circulation of the air cause it to overheat? It was on heat at the time because it was right before the weather warmed up by us. Thank you for any advice.

2023.05.28 15:17 teepstwo3 AITA for becoming frustrated that my partner hides me from his homophobic friends?

My partner (27M) and I (29M) have been together for four years, living together for two years. Before we met, he attended a small, very conservative Christian college and came out as gay only after he graduated and left. In his time there he became friends with a group of guys who he’ll still casually and infrequently talk to. That said, they aren’t aware that my partner is in the closet to them.
Last night my partner stepped away for an hour or so to FaceTime with one of the guys who he hadn’t talked to or seen in a while. According to my partner, his friend, in addition to the others, has made homophobic comments in the past. To be clear, I would not mind being on good terms with these guys for the sake of my partner’s friendships. But my impression is that they would not reciprocate this feeling since they’re anti-gay.
I unfortunately wear my feelings on my sleeve, and when my partner came back he could tell I was annoyed. This morning I told him very plainly that eventually someone will need to yield in this situation, either me (by getting over being kept a secret) or his friends (by accepting or rejecting their gay friend), and that it will not sit right with me in the future if he takes off a wedding ring when he goes off to hang with these friends.
My partner responded that that was a long way off, that he doesn’t talk to them often, and it’s not something I should be upset about because he’s with me and loves me. But to me, he should be willing to walk away from their homophobia, and it seems like he’s putting their touchy feelings ahead of mine. But the fact remains that while I’d gladly accept his friends, they will not accept me, and it seems like I’m going to end up being kept as a secret for the sake of their feelings.
That upsets me, so AITA?

2023.05.28 15:17 nebulascribe Suggestions for hairline shape and procedure

Suggestions for hairline shape and procedure
My forehead is massive. Always had a huge one though so I’m not sure if there is hair loss occurring, but for a new hairline would you recommend going straight across shaped or maintaining the same unique shape I have now just lower? Also, what would be the best procedure to lower the hairline quite a bit? Much thanks
