2020.10.21 03:05 DisastrousFlower going out with 10 week old in COVID time

we had to buy a toilet today, so baby came to the hardware store. he’s been in maybe 4-5 indoor stores. we’re in NY, so we have very low rates right now for COVID. i’m more worried about him catching a cold or something he’s not fully vaccinated for yet. are you taking your little one out at all?
we’re also in the middle of a home reno, so we’ve got work crews in the house for the next couple weeks. they wear masks and we isolate in another room. my mom’s partner is fighting for his life on a vent in WI, so we’re being cautious.

2020.10.16 17:48 Cryptidette [F4A][18+] Final fantasy VII - ocxcanon longterm romance - I can double

Hello,
I'm looking for a longterm rp partner willing to play Reno, Tseng and Rude as Rufus. My character is polyamorous. So if you can handle playing some guys It's nice. We can share the roles of the secondary characters during the rp to make the story active.
Here the prompts:
  1. Original game :
My character is half cetra half something darker (a kind that will be show later). She is the adoptive daughter of the owner of chocobo farm. Since her mother was in a sect, no one knew about her. So when the owner find the baby in front of his door he just adopted her, and she got a more peaceful life than Aerith that had been the target of the Shinra since she was a kid. Though, my character got regular attack of dark being and it happen once at the Gold saucer where she is a famous Chocobo jockey. It can attract the attention of the ShinRa. It's your choice, or Rufus was just here for business with others rich and watch a race so he send his TURKS after her. Or she got reported by someone and the TURKS are send to investigate.
  1. The remake
Same character, the difference is that she is the adoptive daughter of the owner of the chocobo relay. She could run into Reno first when she decides to visit her father ( they are not in good terms) and went into corneo neighbor at Honey bee to see some Bee men show. She can have her crisis with dark spirit attacking her and the people and it attract the attention of the male.

Important: My rp are about romance, and comedy sometime. Also, I'd like draw some scenes of the rp if we got along, so don't contact me if you are not interested/motivated. I'm also friendly so do not hesitate to talk I like click with the others and make friend.

I have some rules, I'll told them to you when you contact me
I can do double Rp, ask me.

Give me a private message

2020.10.15 03:06 Throwaway0194034 AITA for challenging my partner on financial decisions that impact both of us?

My partner (32M) and I (31F) are purchasing our first home. Yesterday, we saw the house and it had felt perfect. However, an offer was due within a couple of hours that day and we felt pressured to put one in. It got accepted (YAY!), but I felt a bit wary. Our mortgage specialist suggested that we give a portion of our deposit to the real estate agent, and the rest to a lawyer. So, today before he went to hand over the 10k deposit, I asked him if we could connect with our lawyer first.

My partner got very upset with me. He started raising his voice and arguing that no one does this, and if we bring a lawyer it would look bad to the real estate agents. That didn't seem like a good reason to me so I asked if we could at least get a second opinion (why would the bank make the suggestion if it was a ridiculous thing to do?). We both agree that a lawyer is needed later in the transaction, so I asked if he could explain why not for the money. He just said that we didn't have to do it. I called the real estate agent to ask and she said it's not needed, so I gave up.

After I called, he explained that the bank was making sure we don't get screwed over. I asked why he couldn't have told me that when I asked. He argued that I should have trusted him. He also claimed I was challenging him and this is why he raised his voice and got upset. My argument is that this is MY money too, and I want to make sure we aren't taking on any unnecessary risk. And when I asked him about it, he opted to raise his voice and not talk to me. If the option for extra safety exists why not take it?

Anyway, later that evening we discussed how we felt about the house. We started talking about renovations and he asked me how I felt. I told him that I felt a bit bulldozed (we had been waiting on another mortgage preapproval to weigh our options), and I wished we'd had more time to consider options for reno mortgages. He asked why I wouldn't just ask him as he's already done some research around this.

This is where things got tense. I said I would have liked to do my own research as well and come back so we can discuss. It wasn't a matter of not trusting him but I want to be knowledgeable about my options. He said the only reason I wouldn't want to listen to him is because I think he's wrong. But, it has nothing to do with him; I want to do my own research so I can make an informed decision. In some instances yeah, I am willing to go along with things but this is the biggest purchase of my life. I also explained that earlier today, when I tried to talk to him about a decision he yelled at me and shut me down. He's saying that my decision makes no sense to him and that it's a waste of time and energy to learn about something he already knows about. And that I should take his word and draw my conclusions from that. He's annoyed with me and has said there's no logic to my thinking, and I'm exasperated and frustrated. Is this a no brainer for couples or am I the asshole here?

2020.10.14 00:02 mariahisamurphy Took cat to ER after Simultaneous Puking and Diarrhea: Said it was either Cancer or Infection

age: 18
Sex: Female/Spayed Breed: Maine Coon Body Weight: 7.5.lbs (was 8.3 when weighed about 3 months ago) History: Renal Failure, Unsure how long as she was adopted, Only Eats KD Hills Prescription Food Clinical Signs: Started Puking and Acting strange around 1:00pm. Simultaneous Puking/Diarrhea, Vomited about 6-7 times from 1:00pm to 7:00pm Location: Reno, NV Links: Unfortunately don't have any at this moment

Hello!
My partner and I adopted an elderly cat about 2 years ago. She is now 18. She has had renal failure and we take her for regular check-ups about every three months. The last check-up we had we were told she was doing okay, obviously her kidney levels are high due to the renal failure, but she was still healthy and weighed an okay amount. No immediate cause for concern.
Yesterday she began puking while my partner was at home. She hasn't eaten anything strange and does not ever try to eat people food or things on the floor. This is a single cat household. She is an indoor cat and the only time she is outside is on the porch where we supervise her. We started to worry after the 3rd or 4th time she vomited. We rushed her to the ER and waited a couple of hours to be seen. She vomits maybe once a month, but nothing like this.
After running tests and x-rays the vet said she had an INCREDIBLY high white blood cell count thinking it could be cancer and that it would cost 2-3 thousand dollars to keep her over night, run more tests and do an ultrasound to see if she had a tumor. She said her kidney levels were mildly high, but she was concerned more about the white blood cell count. She said she was also very constipated. She also suggested it could just be an infection. Our second option was an enema with some fluids and an antibitoic. We aren't in the position to pay 2-3k for a cat that is 18 years old, but paid for the second option because if it was just an infection, we'd like to keep her with us a little longer. She came home with us that night and seemed a little out of it. She spends every second by our side and slept in the garage whereas she would usually sleep in bed with us. She peed once and then went back to sleep.
This morning she woke up and drank some water. She still has not vomited and has not gone to the bathroom again. She will not eat, but continues to drink water.

I just figured if there was that huge of a white blood cell count, our check up 6 months ago would have shown that, or maybe I'm mistaken. I want to believe it's an infection, but I'm also not a vet. We will put her down if it comes to that, but they didn't give us much more instruction on taking care of her after we left. I'd like to think they weren't just trying to get money out of us, but I want to be able to really care for her and give her the things that she needs if her days appear to be done.

Any advice or anecdotal evidence is much appreciated!

2020.10.12 21:18 WestonGrey 52 [M4F] #SFBAY (Emeryville) - Polyam guy looking for a Polyam partner for potential long-term and meaningful relationship

I've been ethically non-monogamous my entire adult life and actively polyam for the past 10 years. I recently got out of a 20 year marriage (amicable divorce), and I have one girlfriend I've seen a couple of times a week for the past four years.
My polyam relationships have been one-on-one wholly separate relationships rather than a V, W, quad, or the like.
About me: I'm 52 years old, 5'8" and 165 pounds. I've always tried to stay in shape, and I'm told I look good for my age (pictures in profile). I'm active, love to travel, and love good food.
I've been active in the sex positive community for the past eight years, having founded a couple of sex positive groups (which had a strong poly leaning): SexPositive Reno in 2012 and later SexPositive Bay Area in 2015. Both are part of a larger organization called SexPositive World. I have a strong activist leaning and find doing sex positive events to be very rewarding.
I have a three year old 20 pound multi-poo (Maltese and Poodle) named Bobbie, who is the cutest thing ever.
I'm very compersive, open minded, GGG, and love to experiment. I'm not particularly kinky, but I'm always open to trying stuff my partner is interested in.
I head an IT Department for a local company in SF. I do go into the office every day, but I have minimal contact with others, and we all wear masks and socially distance.
I'm looking for someone age appropriate (say 45-55ish), active, open-minded, fun and easy going.
Here's a recent picture: https://imgur.com/ZdJiuoi
Not to come across as shallow, but a picture or a good description of yourself would be welcome so we can determine if there's a mutual attraction. I'm not a big fan of long online conversations and would rather move to meeting in a park or outdoor cafe sooner than later. I feel like you don't really get to know someone until you meet in person.

2020.10.12 06:51 EverythingWillBeFine It’s been a tough, but monumental year for my personal growth

Hello all! I will try to be somewhat concise and organized with my thoughts, but it’s a lot to convey. Thank you for all those that will take the time to read and help me with my situation.
I am 26(F) who is finally learning to stand up for myself. For the majority of my life, I have been a doormat. This behavior has been instilled in my psyche because I grew up with an emotionally unstable, narcissistic mother. She occasionally tries to be motherly (mostly out of feeling societally obligated), but really left me hanging when I needed her most (December of 2019, my now ex husband decided to divorce me via text message). He gave me two weeks to move out of the house while he and his mistress went on vacation. I was still recovering from a breast reduction surgery and had to hire reinforcement to help me move my furniture and heavier items. My best friend was getting married on New Years Eve. I was the maid of honor and had to be a supportive and present friend for her during this happiest time of her life when it was the absolute most dismal part of mine. It was an absolute whirlwind in the worst way possible. I instantly lost my marriage, my home, my pets, my friend identity, my stability. I was financially dependent on my (also narcissistic) ex, who was extremely well off. He forced me not to work and be a stay at home wife, then divorced me and called me unmotivated and void of aspirations.
So, I’m trying to get my life together in the matter of two weeks. My mom moved into a new house with her boyfriend at this time and had her old house available. She offered it to me and told me to make it my own. I was seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Things were going to be okay. I could breathe. I start throwing out her old stuff and making plans to reno and make it nice and she straight up goes OFF on me. Saying she feels like she’s being thrown out of her house and all her shit too (she’s kinda a hoarder and I’m super anal and clutter free). I’m in such an emotionally unstable and low part of my life, I cannot handle any more stress. I move in with my dad (not ideal going from independent with your own space to moving in with your family), but I had to make it work for the time being to get my shit together.
I leaned on my mom and she failed me. She failed me when I needed her the most. My mom never fully apologized when I told her about how she made me feel. She acted somewhat remorseful, but instead made excuses for her behavior. It felt very disingenuous. This was the start of our relationship really deteriorating.
This part was the icing on the cake. So my step dad is a huge prick. He’s a pompous asshole who becomes the biggest dick when he’s drinking.
My huge dick head of a step dad got into an altercation completely separate from me at the airport I train at over something super trivial. Not even worth typing. I later start my flight training there right before my divorce. I really hit it off with everybody there, especially one of the owners of the company. We become romantically involved. His business partner (let’s call him Joe) was the one that directly dealt with my dick bag of a step dad (let’s call him Richard). So Richard hates Joe.
One evening I am having dinner at my parent’s house (It’s my mom’s birthday) and they bring up the whole altercation and how much Joe is an asshole. I stick up for Joe since now he’s my friend and coworker. My mother gets instantly defensive along with my step dad and I start to feel extremely attacked (mind you, my tolerance is very high and I have pretty thick skin). I get extremely pissed at how they are handling the situation. I storm out and leave. They were putting me in the middle even though I wasn’t involved and getting aggressive at me for not believing their side of the story when they brought it up!
My mom has always chosen him over me. They would go on vacation constantly when I was in high school and leave me behind. My mom was never really present. Which was fine because I couldn’t stand to be around her then, anyways. Our relationship finally became okay when I met my ex. We would talk regularly and became good friends. She was finally being motherly and present in my life. My divorce seemed to be the catalyst of the demise of our relationship.
So now I’m dating Joe’s business partner for almost a year now at this point. My mother still hasn’t met him. She finally texted me that maybe next month with can do a little early thanksgiving dinner and maybe she can meet him. It took her 9 months to finally mention meeting him after I had pressed the issue once or twice beforehand. She kinda blew me off, so I felt the ball was in her court.
Ever since the blowout on her birthday where I stormed out, our relationship has not been repaired. I ignored her for a while and blew her off until she finally asked if she had done something. I spilled my heart out and didn’t really get a healing apology or any sort of change.
I’m kind of at a loss of what to do at this point. I know I need to rip the bandaid off and have a conversation with her. I don’t feel super comfortable completely cutting her out of my life. I’m a fixer and I just don’t want turmoil in my life. It causes me too much stress. But I also don’t know what to tell her to resolve the situation. I just want to feel like a priority to her. I don’t want it to be forced. I want it to heal. But how do you make narcissists see your side? I want to resolve this before it becomes completely unrepairable. I see a future with my boyfriend. I think about our future marriage and children and don’t want my narcissistic mother to put a strain on our healthy relationship. Please help with any tips on how to approach my specific situation or with grooming narcissists in general. :)
TL;DR: narcissistic mother has been absent in my life. Hasn’t shown interest in meeting my boyfriend of nearly a year until just now. It really hurts my feelings how she’s been acting, but I’m unsure how to call her out in a productive way. I also want to fix the relationship.

2020.10.11 22:35 Erhard_Eckmann [Econ] America on the Go Act

America on the Go Act

Prelude

Almost 10 years ago, a VP Biden advocated for a $53 Bn high-speed rail system to connect Americans, businesses, and goods together. However, his dream was never realized with a Republican majority in the House of Representatives at the time. The Republicans wanted to see a high-speed rail system come through private businesses. How well had their justification held up nine years later? As of yet, no true high-speed rail service was constructed, while some private businesses have plans for niche local routes. At the end of the day, there are many limitations, particularly financing, preventing a single or few businesses from going national with a high-speed rail project. Democrats have backed up President Biden, stating that the delays and regional focus have not benefited a majority of the population, and it will require a federal focus. The Republicans claimed that Amtrak is an abysmal failure and would torpedo the implementation, and frankly, this is one spot that the Democrats agree. In the current state, Amtrak is not fit for implementing and servicing a high-speed rail service, and instead are presenting a new public enterprise to be set up as a for-profit organization that will focus on the high-speed railway and cargo services. However, the Democrats have also admitted that it would be inappropriate to create new public business without reforming Amtrak as well, and have decided Amtrak reforms should be attached to proposed America on the Go Act. Secretary Musk was upset that his own company would not have the opportunity to contract on the project, nor manage a national roll-out of high-speed rail, but is confident that his dream can finally be realized this way.

American High-Speed Rail Corporation (AHSRC)

The America on the Go Act has called for the creation of a for-profit public corporation called American High-Speed Rail Corporation to manage and roll-out high-speed railway services for the United States of America. The AHSRC will operate subordinate to the Department of Transportation and horizontal to Amtrak. Rather than how Amtrak was initially set up by having separate companies and in some cases, private enterprise, running different lines, AHSRC will be completely federally run by a single organization. AHSRC will have the authority to set their own prices and provide discounts to the elderly, students, military service members and veterans. AHSRC will hold rolling stock, manage traffic, and perform ongoing maintenance of the rail services. Because it is a high-speed rail, requirements have been set for passenger HSR lines to have a 10 minute turnaround time allowing five minutes to get off, and five minutes to get on.

American High-Speed Railway Network

Map
The America on the Go Act presents six high-speed rail lines to service the country, with some small connection lines to important economic and population centers (denoted by dotted lines). The service will feature West Coast Line, Southern Line, Trans-Continental Line, Mississippi River Line, East Coast Line, and the Great Lakes Line. Some additional connections have been proposed for consideration by the Government of Canada, and Mexico which will help increase travel, commerce, and relations between the three countries after the Trump era, further affirming the US-Mexico-Canada Trade Agreement.
West Coast Line
One of the major important lines for the United States is pitched to start, with Canada’s cooperation, in Vancouver which will then service the Sea-Tac area before Portland, and then down into the major cities of California like Sacramento, San-Fran, San Jose, and down to LA, and San Diego. A connecting line will provide connections for Reno to Sacramento. In the future, there is a prospective line proposal for Mexico to connect San Diego to Tijuana, and down to Cabo San Lucas in Baja California. Of course, the Canadian and Mexican portion of the rails would be operated by a Canadian and Mexican partner that will coordinate with AHSRC that will not have to change trains or cars to cross the border, but a swap of the managing team. This line will begin construction in 2021, and is to be completed in 2025. This line will be a passenger line.
Southern Line
The Southern Line will begin in Los Angeles and transit to Flagstaff, which has options of a Phoenix to Tucson service, or continuing service to Albuquerque which then goes to El Paso, San Antonio, Austin, Houston, over to New Orleans, then to Mobile, Pensacola, Tallahassee, Jacksonville. From Jacksonville, the line will head south into Florida to Orlando, Tampa, and ending in Miami. This line will be a passenger line. This line will begin construction in 2021 and is to be completed in 2026
Trans-Continental Line
The Trans-Continental Line will be a priority freight line and passenger line with high-speed service from San-Francisco to Salt Lake City, Kansas City, St. Louis, Louisville, Charleston, and ending in New York City. This line will primarily service freight like postal and objects that can be contained in shipping containers. Open cover freight will not be possible at the time of its inception and is expected to have a high-shipping premium. However, this could have great military implications like transporting troops, arms and other items at high speed across the country. This line will begin construction in 2021 and is to be completed in 2026.
East Coast Line
The East Coast Line is another passenger service line with service from Austin to Montreal. The line has connection options for Oklahoma City, and Charleston SC. The mainline itself will service Birmingham, Montgomery, Atlanta, Charlotte, Richmond, Washington D.C., Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York City, Hartford, Providence, Boston, Manchester, and finally Montreal. This line will facilitate east coast interconnectivity and will create options for workers to live in lower-cost residential areas and transit to the cities for work, while also connecting the Western US travelers to the East Coast and vice versa. This line will begin construction in 2021 and is to be completed in 2025.
Mississippi River Line
The Mississippi River Line does not actually follow the river, however, it catches the major cities in the states that have the Mississippi. The line begins in New Orleans, and offers service to Little Rock, Kansas City, Des Moines, and Minneapolis. Ultimately this line will probably have the least ridership out of every line, however, there is no vertical integration across the lines, and the Mississippi Line will facilitate connections across the major lines part-way across the country. This line will begin construction in 2023 and is to be completed in 2028.
Great Lakes Line
The Great Lakes Line is almost as much a Canada line as it is an American line. The purpose of this line is to connect the rust belt and Canadian population centers to the American East Coast. The line will begin in Montreal, with service to Ottawa, Toronto, Detroit, Chicago and end in Minneapolis. This line will have connection options to Louisville, Indianapolis, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Detroit, and Sault Ste. Marie. This will help revitalize the steel industry in Sault Ste. Marie, the coal and mining industries in Pennsylvania, and the Great Lakes industries, while connecting to big business and ports on the East Coast. This will begin in 2021 and is to be completed in 2024.
Operations and Rolling Stock
The AHSRC has selected the Avelia Liberty high-speed train that will operate at speeds of 220 mph for the American High-Speed Rail Network. These trains are capable of crossing the United States for the longest journey in approximately 13 hours, while not as fast as an airplane, is considerably more affordable for a higher-quality service than a budget airline like Spirit. Night trains that run long-hauls will pull a mix of the passenger seat and sleeper cars, whereas day time trains will pull a three-class arrangement by ticket. Trains will have free on-board Wi-Fi, USB ports and power sockets. Seats will be fixed with an on-board entertainment system. When boarding, passengers will be allowed one overhead, one personal item. Larger items will have bins at the front and back of the seated car to place, and then can be retrieved at the passenger’s destination.
Much like an airport, travelers will have to get their ticket checked along with Federally-approved identification by the TSA. If transiting through Mexico or Canada, or arriving from, persons crossing borders must be bringing their passport and appropriate immigration documents. Customs declaration forms will be passed around to foreign persons coming from Canada or Mexico. All bags, including large items, will have to pass through a scanner, and each person will have to go through a full-body scan. Firearms, and sharps longer than 3 inches with the exception of active-duty military personnel, will not be approved for transit.
All on-board announcements will be first read in English, followed by Spanish, French, and Chinese. Every seated passenger will be given one bottle of water, and all other food or meal services will be available for purchase through a roving cart. Each train will have at least two US Marshals present and armed, at all times during transit. Trains will run across the country beginning at 5:00 AM EST and the last trains leaving at 9:00 PM EST.

Reforming Amtrak and Upgrading Services

Ironically, Amtrak lines have a somewhat efficient service for having such a bad reputation. Amtrak has a reliability of 83%, which is more reliable than domestic airlines at 82%, but just barely. Where Amtrak’s issues truly surface are in funding, and labor relations. For a widespread rail service in the United States, it isn’t often chosen for transportation because the rails are poorly maintained, which makes sense given how poorly funded they are. Amtrak only receives $1.4 Bn annually, which is not nearly enough to keep upgrading the rails, maintaining bridges, salaries, cleaning the cars, replaceable parts and otherwise, making for quite unsatisfactory service. One of the primary issues is, despite being a state-owned enterprise, is the government for some reason believes that it should be self-sufficient and require no funding, which frankly isn’t exactly an option in the current situation. If it is to eventually be self-sufficient, it will require appropriate investment so that it can manage itself and focus on providing a better service and maintaining itself. Shortly, Congress has discussed the auditing of federal institutions to eliminate waste, which would address any overspending or inefficiencies inside Amtrak or other SOEs for that matter, but for the meantime, the funding will have to suffice. The Federal Government has planned to provide Amtrak with $5 Bn annually to upgrade, do maintenance, and perform its services, which will be significantly needed to increase from the current amount.

2020.10.11 05:09 WestonGrey 52 [M4F] #SFBAY (Emeryville) - Polyam guy looking for a Polyam partner for potential long-term and meaningful relationship

I've been ethically non-monogamous my entire adult life and actively polyam for the past 10 years. I recently got out of a 20 year marriage (amicable divorce), and I have one girlfriend I've seen a couple of times a week for the past four years.
My polyam relationships have been one-on-one wholly separate relationships rather than a V, W, quad, or the like.
About me: I'm 52 years old, 5'8" and 165 pounds. I've always tried to stay in shape, and I'm told I look good for my age (pictures in profile). I'm active, love to travel, and love good food.
I've been active in the sex positive community for the past eight years, having founded a couple of sex positive groups (which had a strong poly leaning): SexPositive Reno in 2012 and later SexPositive Bay Area in 2015. Both are part of a larger organization called SexPositive World. I have a strong activist leaning and find doing sex positive events to be very rewarding.
I have a three year old 20 pound multi-poo (Maltese and Poodle) named Bobbie, who is the cutest thing ever.
I'm very compersive, open minded, GGG, and love to experiment. I'm not particularly kinky, but I'm always open to trying stuff my partner is interested in.
I head an IT Department for a local company in SF. I do go into the office every day, but I have minimal contact with others, and we all wear masks and socially distance.
I'm looking for someone age appropriate (say 45-55ish), active, open-minded, fun and easy going.
Recent Picture: https://imgur.com/ZdJiuoi
I don't want to seem shallow, but a picture or a good description of yourself would be welcome so we can determine if there's a mutual attraction. I'm not a big fan of long online conversations and would rather move to meeting in a park or outdoor cafe sooner than later. I feel like you don't really get to know someone until you meet in person.

2020.10.10 21:24 Kimjongkung Why is Cloud ”brushed” off.

Haven’t played the original in ages, so i can’t really remember all the interactions between people in that game.
May contain spoilers!
However, one thing i found weird is that no one gives Cloud the respect he deserves (or atleast oughta have). Let me elaborate.
We’ve been told SOLDIER’s are more or less meta humans (even 3rd ranks are not to trifled with for regular humans). Cloud in a sense is maybe not a SOLDIER, even though he underwent the same treatment, but that’s besides the point at the moment.
AVALANCHE members (atleast those you do missions with) does not question Cloud claims on being a 1st ranked Ex-SOLDIER, and they see him in combat, so far so good. Tifa obviously knows something is wrong, but that is for different reasons.
But later when you crash through the church roof, and meet with Aerith again, your suddenly interupted by Reno and some grunts. Cloud and Reno exchange some words, and Reno asks about Cloud, and Cloud says he’s a Ex-SOLDIER 1st rank, and Reno does not question it per se (he sees the eyes).
So he seems to believe Cloud, or atleast don’t question it, for all he know Cloud is a 1st class, but not as renowned as Sephiroth (and Genesis/Angael, If we take all the lore into consideration).
That fight makes sense-ish, Reno send two waves of grunts before engaging, and used gadgets etc (Lightning balls), but is ultimatly beaten. But never does he questions Cloud legitimatcy on his claims, which means Cloud is as strong as a 1st, or atleast near that ballpark at that time.
But yeah, that fight made sense, since it would be stupid If Reno tried attacking a person he thought was a 1st class SOLDIER himself without backup.
However later Rude abruptly stops Cloud and Aerith (also after finding out Cloud fought of Reno and a bunch of footsoldiers), and won without little effort, and he just invites you to a back alley for a fight (in which he used only hud fists?).
This makes so little sense If you try to do the lore Justice. For gameplay reasons you needed a boss, and that boss would be appropriatelly challenging.
In Reno’s sense atleast you fought grunts, followed by Reno using gadgets and so forth, like Reno knew: This guy should not be messed with. It felt like Reno was there for a reason, and a boss for a reason (he tried to get Aerith), and you foiled his plans.
Rude however invites a person he thinks is a ex SOLDIER 1st rank into a backyard brawl (and knowing the lore, no one would mess with a former 1st rank SOLDIER without a plan or backup). This made it feel like Rude during that fight was merely an obstacle put there because we needed a boss fight.
Atleast later on when you fight them it makes a little more sense. Rude backs up Reno with a freakin’ chopper, which we’re lead to believe would be a more plausible solution for fighting someone like Cloud.
Heck even Rufus Shinra just jumps out casually from the chopper and starts talking to Cloud like he’s just an ordinary man. He also seems to believe Cloud since he even states that he owns Cloud (since SOLDIER belongs to Shinra).
I’m not talking from a gameplay perspective here, of course you need bosses, and the bosses must gradually get more challenging, and everything and everyone can’t be an unstoppable monster.
But the first Reno fight made somewhat sense, and the later duo fight (Reno and Rude) made sense. But Rude just trying to fistfight someone he thinks is a 1st class ex-SOLDIER felt so out of place.
Since we’re made to believe those guys are the best of the best (and they are), and strong as hell, coupled with unparalleled combat experience. Yet people somehow see Cloud as s nuisance rather than a threat.
Not every 1st class SOLDIER is as well known as Sephiroth, and certainly not as strong. But If they buy the Idea that Cloud is a 1st SOLDIER, they can’t just disregard it just because Cloud is not as well known as Sephiroth.
I assure you, If Sephiroth was escorting Aerith instead of Cloud (for some odd reasons), the Turks would not a pick a fight with her. Obviously they don’t think Cloud is AS strong, but atleast he plays in the same ball park as Sephiroth, but somehow that makes no difference for them.
Regardless, awesome game! I was just caught so off-Guard when Rude just opened the gate, and was like: Lets fight here. Like dude, you’re about to fight someone who you think is a Ex-SOLDIER 1st class, that almost killed your partner (until ghosts interfered), with your bare hands.... why do you think that is a good Idea?

2020.10.09 02:45 petiteangel012 Looking for advice on second home purchase

My partner (M 30Y) and I (F 27Y) currently own a three story town home in Ottawa (Orleans). There is roughly 180K left on our mortgage (2.35%), our 5 year term on the mortgage is is set to expire in 2022. We are building a bigger home in the outskirts of Ottawa which is set to close next fall (2021). We're still in planning phase with our builder for the new home so we are not 100% of the price but it should range between 650-700k (which is actually really high) including the lot. Our current home was bought at 250k and could potentially sell today between 400-430k (the market in Ottawa has been very inflated this past few months). I am not ready to sell our current home as I love this property and with the prices of houses soaring in Ottawa I am not sure if we could ever afford another property in the city. I have not spoken to a financial advisor yet since the house is set to close next year and the 2nd deposit for the builder will not be due until the spring. I was hoping to get advice from you guys on whether my plan makes sense.
My plan is to pull out equity from our current home and put it towards the new house to ensure we can make the 20% down payment. Right now we can pull 70k without having to refinance the home, but I am thinking of refinancing the home and pulling out a total of 170k from our current home. we would rent our current home so the rental income can pay the new mortgage of the current house. Although we could probably save the 20% (pinching pennies) without having to refinance the house completely, I think refinancing is the best way to avoid paying additional tax on the rental income we would be receiving. I am also thinking refinancing the house now will avoid additional tax we would need to pay if ever we decide to sell the investment property in the future as the value of the house jumped almost 200k.
We already put 20k down on the new home to reserve the lot and are planning to save an additional 30-40k cash by the time the house is ready next year. Our current house could probably rent between 1500-1800$ a month, our current expenses on the house (180k mortgage) is ~1200$ monthly inc tax&utilities. I think 20% down would mean we would need at least 130-140K cash downpayment. My fear is also affording a new house worth 650k with our current salaries and all the new expenses that comes with a new house (atleast no renos needed!) but we would need to furnish the home increase in property tax etc.
My partner and I salary is roughly ~70k each and we have zero debt (both cars and school is paid off). Currently we only have 3k saved cash after the 20k we put down for the lot. I am planning to save 1k per pay until the house closes, my partner should be saving the same or around 800$ per pay. I am worried about the timing of refinancing the house, finding a tenant (paying the realtor expense) and the closing of the new house. I am aware everything should be timed correctly to avoid paying two mortgages out of pocket (would be expensive on only 140k combined income). I am hoping to find a tenant and moving in with a family member at least 1 or 2 months ahead of completion of the new place (COVID pending + partner isn't 100% on board with living with family lol ).
Happy to heard your thoughts!

2020.10.06 17:12 best-life Is this a reasonable strategy for buying in a hot market? (Approaching flippers directly during construction)

I just had this idea and can’t find any information about it (so... my assumption is that I'm missing something and this is a bad idea)
My partner and I are looking for a move-in ready, newly renovated home in Austin. We already know the neighborhoods that we like, and there are a lot of homes being flipped in the area.
Would it be reasonable to approach a home flipper and essentially line myself up as a buyer? The way I’m imagining it, once they’re wrapping up the reno they could let us know and we’ll do a walkthrough, agree on a price, and essentially execute it as a FSBO to save the flipper the 5-6% in realtor fees.
It feels like a mutually beneficial strategy. We have the certainty of a move-in ready home in a neighborhood that we like, and the flipper gets an extra 5-6% by avoiding realtor fees. And worst case scenario for the flipper, we fall through and they just list as normal.
Is this even legal? If so, does it sound like something a home flipper would be open to?

2020.09.30 19:49 skokada Anyone have a driveway or garage I can rent for a day or two?

Hi! Can't believe this is what has drawn me to make my first reddit post but does anyone have a driveway or garage I could rent out asap? My partner and I were traveling to Salt Lake City from SF when my 03 Honda Element overheated. Took it to the shop and found out I'll have to do an engine swap :( Trying to save money so I found a craigslist mechanic to work on it but he needs a space and since I'm from out of town I don't have a place (already got turned down by storage units that I've called). If anyone could help me out, I'd really appreciate it and am more than willing to compensate. Until then I guess I'm stranded in Reno...
tl;dr I need to do an engine swap on my Honda Dlement and need a space where a mobile mechanic can get the job done.

2020.09.30 16:47 ourstupidearth Any experienced house flippers looking to partner on a deal in Waterloo, ON?

Long story short, I purchased this property privately recently: https://www.realtor.ca/real-estate/22387500/54-norman-street-waterloo I have done similar projects in the past, however, with a full time job and a new baby I'm not super excited about diving into a reno this big right now. So I am looking to partner with someone that can finance and execute the renovation - someone with experience and know how.
Fixed up comps in the area are going for $900k to $950. Work to be done would be somewhere $100k-$150k range, depending on the scope and finishes etc.
I am open to a VTB Mortgage or a Equity Partnership.
DM me for more info and we can start a conversation.
