2022.01.18 23:31 montezuma300 Do you use the skips the game gives you or do you go through a few biomes on the way through?
So I'm making my way through Biome 3 currently. And I now I have the shortcut to the Citadel from the first level. But I don't think it would be smart to go straight there with a level 0 pistol or something. But I imagine you can't go through all the biomes once you're near the end. Do you guys fight through a few biomes or do you just go as far as possible and fight in the latest biome for you?

2022.01.18 23:31 scenicroutestories Did I (25M) read things wrong and spook him (26M)? Did I push too hard, or was I led on? [LONG POST]
We (25M & 26M) met on an app back in November before Thanksgiving, his profile mentioned he wasn’t looking for anything serious so I went in expecting a NSA hookup and was fine with that.
We end up hitting it off really well over dinner, and I felt more things in common and better chemistry with him than any of the other dates I’ve been going on over the last few months. I had originally planned to head home after his place, but we ended up cuddling and talking for hours (including about deeper topics like ideal traits in a partner, past relationships, etc.) until we fell asleep. We both expressed pleasant surprise at how much better it felt compared to other meetups, and he said multiple times how compatible things seemed from our conversation flow to even snuggling positions.
We end up texting every day even though he shared that he isn’t a great texter and mostly sees it as a way to organize calls or in-person activities. I noticed from the first night that it was true that he was very disconnected from his phone, which I found quite attractive. I maintained a pretty cautious stance towards everything though, since I wasn’t sure what he was looking for.
We both had several travel plans upcoming after that first night due to the holiday season (Thanksgiving and Christmas). He asks if I’d like to see each other again for the day I have free before leaving for my work trip after thanksgiving, which I happily agree to. He then also extends an invite for me to go over to his place to cook together for the following week when I’d be back from the work trip, which I also thought would be fun. We continue to text daily, and he starts sending messages that are more romantic/feelsy such as saying he misses me, can’t wait to see me again, and even referring to the wine bar we should revisit as “our bar”. I really enjoyed our conversations and flirting, so while still remaining cautious, I start to warm up to the idea that maybe he’s not only interested in hookups. I thought about asking about it but wanted to meet a few more times to feel things out.
Unfortunately neither of those planned meetups happened due to him being sick after Thanksgiving and then me being sick after getting back from the work trip. We both tested negative for COVID but being sick is still sick… so we had decided not to risk passing it to the other and having to possibly cancel our respective trips. We decide to facetime instead and end up talking for nearly 5 hours. He greeted me really warmly and complimented me a lot throughout the call.
I recover before his work trip but we still decide not to risk it in case I’m still contagious with anything, and he asks to hang out when he gets back. A couple days into his trip, it gets cancelled early due to an employee testing positive for COVID. He decides to shift his flight earlier to land on Friday night and asks to hang out before my Saturday afternoon flight since he wants to see me. His flight ends up quite delayed which means he can’t get home until late. I let him know it’s no issue to cancel if he prefers to rest, and he says he’s exhausted but doesn’t care since he really wants to see me, and that I should go over and sleepover, then just leave from his place since he’s closer to the airport anyway.
It’d been about a month at this point since we first met in person, and it felt so good to spend time together again. There were some sweet moments mixed in that were all initiated by him since I’m a bit more shy. After that night I feel that I like him and really enjoy time together.
We continue texting and it continues to ramp up with more romantic/flirty texts. We text mostly in the morning before our days start and evenings after work. My best friend said our texts to each other looked almost couple-y. At one point he texts how he is really looking forward to spending a lot of time together after the holiday and that he was so glad we met. Come New Year’s Day, I send a similar text that meeting him’s been a highlight if 2021, that I wished I could give him a NYE kiss, and that I was looking forward to kicking off 2022 with him. He says he can’t wait to give me that new year’s kiss when I’m back and that we’ve got a long list of fun things to do together this year.
At this point I wanted more clarity on what he’s looking for since I could feel my like for him growing, but wasn’t sure on the timing of sharing this since it felt natural time-wise but not from an in-person meetings perspective since all the travel prevented us from seeing each other beyond the two times over the months. We facetimed a few days later as I was still out of town, and talk about things like love languages, past relationships in more detail, how we felt exclusivity is something that should be defined explicitly rather than ever assumed, etc. He said it was good we were having these kinds of conversation and that it was good to know about each other. I then bring up and ask what he meant when his profile had said he wasn’t looking for anything serious, and he clarified that he defined serious as the stage of meeting parents and contemplating marriage, and he had written it to deter people who might want to rush into that though he does want that in the future. He shared his perspective that a relationship starts with the initial stage of getting to know each other, followed by the exclusivity conversation milestone, and then becomes a couple/relationship. He also shared he wasn’t sure about making commitments currently given the pandemic. His prior relationships lasted 1-2 years, so I didn’t take it as him having issues with commitment itself and flaking out. Our conversation then moved on to other topics.
After the call, I reflected on his statements about commitment, was a bit confused by it, and felt I still lacked full clarity on whether a relationship together down the line was something on the table for him. I like him and really enjoy our times together, so I wanted to be sure I wasn’t setting myself up for falling for something that was never a possibility.
We had plans to meet this past weekend when I got back, and I had hoped to use that time to discuss face-to-face a little more about what he’s open to considering when it came to us. However, due to omnicron surge in our city and me having just flown back, we rescheduled as a FT call instead which ended up being a regular call. We talk for about 3 hours, and he ends the call since he’s about to start making dinner. I hadn’t realized how fast time had gone by so I was a bit caught off guard, which must have translated to my voice since he sent a text shortly after asking if I was okay or upset at the end of the call or just tired. I said I was all good and that I just didn’t respond immediately since I was surprised, and that time flies with him. He says okay but checks again that there’s nothing I had wanted to say or ask. I responded that I was sure and was just gonna ask to set up another FT but that we could coordinate later on. He says sounds good then checks a third time if I’m sure there’s nothing else I wanted to say or talk about and that he’s all ears. The clarity on what he would be open to considering popped into my mind, though I hadn’t originally planned to talk about it this time since I wanted it to be while face to face. I make the snap decision though that it could be something to just clarify quickly/easily for a few minutes via call so I said there’s one thing I’ve been wondering and we hop back on the phone.
After um-ing and ah-ing from nerves, I told him I liked him, that I was personally becoming less interested in seeing other people, but that this wasn’t me having the exclusive conversation yet since I still think it’s important we have time to determine if we’d be a good fit, and that I just wanted to be upfront that I have the intention of exploring if down the line there could be something more with us. I then opened it up for him to share his thoughts. He seemed relieved and said he was expecting me to say something crazy (we didn’t deep dive on what he had thought I would say). He shared that he was glad to have the conversation, that relationships have always been on the table for him, but he wasn’t sure he’s in a place right now to be in one in general (not just me). I re-clarified that I didn’t bring this up to commit or rush us into anything official, just to understand if something more was something he might also be open to down the line, and that his answer wasn’t too surprising for me as I’m also still trying to figure out if a relationship together would be good. What did surprise me was him saying after that he didn’t feel romantic/excited feelings for me, that those feelings could develop and grow over time but he wasn’t sure if it would and wouldn’t want to force anything since it wouldn’t last. He also said they had existed in the start of his prior relationships. I agreed that forcing feelings is never good since it wouldn’t be sustainable or fair for either party. We ended up discussing for about half an hour (originally planned for just 5min) before agreeing that we’ve shared enough thoughts on it for now and that we should take some time to reflect. I felt surprised by his statement about not having romantic feelings since it seemed incongruent with the content and frequency of his texts and his behavior while facetiming and being in-person together.
He texted about an hour later that he hoped I don’t hate him and that he’s still looking forward to spending more time together because he loves talking to me. He said his friend had actually called him right after we spoke, and he told his friend how I was so easy to talk to that he could see us hanging out together for a long time, and that he loves our conversations. I said the feeling’s mutual, and he said he can’t remember the last time he met someone who’s able to speak intelligently on all the things he’s interested in, who’s genuinely fun and interesting to be around, and that he feels lucky to have me in his life. I told him more time together is really the happy outcome I’m looking for at this point, and that I don’t want him to feel rushed so to take his time reflecting, talking with friends, and that there’s no value in being in a hurry over this.
Since that conversation, our texts have continued but at a progressively lower rate over the last week. It’s slowed down to where he now texts less than once per day. I had asked for a facetime and we planned for this past Sunday, though he then said he actually felt like we should meet in person, targeting later in the week. I was really happy with this suggestion and I shared that Friday/weekend would be easiest for me then, but he hasn’t confirmed a day (we started to text about other things). His texts have slowed down to maybe once every other day.
As I’ve reflected more on it, I find myself sad about the abrupt loss of warmth, the feeling that I’ve lost out on all the fun future plans, and a little mad as I increasingly feel that I was led on. I do still really like him and want to spend time together, but these last two weeks seem to be his way of indicating that he doesn’t feel the same (anymore?)… It’s hard for me to reconcile his statement of not having had any romantic/excited feelings when his past behavior seems to have strongly indicated the opposite. I don’t know how to bring it up either without sounding too accusatory and wonder how I should have handled this all differently.

2022.01.18 23:31 Keibee_ I like my best friend and I don’t know what to do
I (15f) like my best friend (15m). He likes me back as well, but I don’t think I can date him just yet.
He is constantly making it severely obvious to me that he is very interested in wanting to date me, and I have told him once before why I am slightly against it, but now I have no clue.
For one, we both are very very good friends, and have been for a while. He has been one of the best friends I’ve ever had, and I don’t want to lose him over a breakup.
As well as, about last month, I got out of a very bad breakup. The guy was in love with a girl for three months of our 6-7 month relationship, and left me for her (but lied about why he left. Story for another time.)
Anyway, I want to do that “glow up after a break up” stuff but in all honesty, that will probably take another month, and I don’t know if I want to wait that long to date him.
I really like my best friend, and I know he really likes me too, but I don’t know if it’s wise to date him right now.

My partner and I are desperately trying to buy a home.
10k in Federal OSAP (currently $110/month)
9k 0% financing on my car (145 bi-weekly)
We'd like to buy ASAP. We have 20k for a down, but I'm wondering if I should throw all my effort into eliminating the OSAP entirely, or just putting that 10k aside to add to the down-payment.
Which will get us a better purchase price/mortgage?

So the preference period is open, and 2 of my classes are clashing. But one class is already allocated, and the other is single option only. I have already made an enquiry, and was told to wait for the adjustment period to resolve any clashes. Is waiting for the adjustment period the only option since I already know these classes are going to clash?

2022.01.18 23:31 hhh888hhhh From IPOE to SOFI, to Bank Charter, “Damn if feels good to be a Gangsta”. Just keep in mind that this is a conditional approval dependent on SOFI divesting from Crypto services.
I noticed no one mentioned this yet, but based on the statement from the OCC, keep in mind that SOFI will have to stop providing Crpto services. Ultimately the Bank Charter trumps everything in my book. But this will keep SOFI one step away from being that super app destination for everything.
“The conditions imposed require specific capital contributions, adherence to an Operating Agreement, and confirmation that the resulting bank will not engage in any crypto-asset activities or services. “
Here are the 3 conditions:
Conditions This approval is subject to the following conditions under 12 USC 1818: 1. The Resulting Bank shall have initial paid-in capital of no less than $750 million contributed in cash, with any deviation requiring prior written OCC non-objection, within ten (10) business days of consummation of the Merger. 2. The Resulting Bank shall enter into, and thereafter implement and adhere to, a written Operating Agreement with the OCC, in a form acceptable to the OCC, within three (3) business days of the consummation of the Merger. This condition shall remain in effect until the Operating Agreement is terminated under the provisions set forth in the Operating Agreement. 3. While the Operating Agreement is in effect, the Resulting Bank shall not engage in any crypto-asset activities or services currently performed by SoFi Inc., or any other crypto- asset activities or services, unless it has received prior written determination of no supervisory objection from the OCC under the procedures set out in the Operating Agreement. 1

2022.01.18 23:31 iawdib_da Isn't SDC companies collecting data a privacy concern for people?
From my small knowledge, self driving car manufacturers like Tesla and CommaAI train their machine learning models offline on their servers. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
This would be requiring them to send over all the data captured from their cameras, radars, lidars (in case of waymo) to their servers. Again please correct me if I'm wrong.
So isn't this a concern of privacy for car owners at all? I mean everywhere they go is being logged and recorded and collected by the company.
Please shed some light on this thing, thanks!
