2020.09.28 01:24 throwra_Idontknowwha AITA for not apologizing to my brother?

Quick bg: I am the youngest sibling and have always been treated like a child, immature, kid. Im an adult living on my own and even today I am seen as inexperienced in life by my family.
A few weeks ago my brother started work at a city that is currently going through a hard time during the pandemic. His son also started going to the nursery, so both of them are currently having high social contact. Because of this I decided to distance myself for a while. We talked about it but he disagreed and kept calling me immature. Despite all I kept calling and doing videocalls, I never showed any kind of neglect towards them. Yesterday I asked for some stuff I needed and that I would go get it to his home but would appreciate to keep it short( and with masks on). They called back mocking me and saying I was living in fear for a stupid reason. They called me immature, scaredy-cat, stupid. I didnt answer and left it there. My mother called me and said I should apologize because I was the one neglecting them. Now, the thing is that they have ALWAYS made fun of me for whatever reason. In their eyes Im some kind of stupid useless adult-child(despite owning my own bussiness) and I just exploded. I explained my reasons and that I would like, for once, an apology. She said I was crazy. I just hung up and haven’t answered any message from them since. My plan is to just act normal and see how it goes without any calls involved on my part. My partner agrees with me so maybe I am not so crazy on this?? He has also seen how they treat me and mock me in person and is a bit uncomfortable about it. Anyways, Im a bit confused about what to do now: should I call and apologize or not?
TLDR: asked family to social distance for a while. They accused me if neglecting them and I should apologize.

2020.09.28 01:24 kamoterider23 [UPD: EEEI] Yet another awol question

Hello everyone,
gaya ng sabi ng title, naka awol din ako (4 years na).
bakit ako nag awol? well, during my last year sa UP, nakulong ang nanay ko, very abusive ang tatay ko (keep spitting words on my like "kala ko ba matalino ka? bakit nagkakamali ka?", "ang laki mong tao wala kang lilim!", "maghanap ka ng trabaho kung gusto mong mag-aral!"), and syempre gaya ng problema ng maraming estudyanteng tumitigil sa pag-aaral, wala kaming pang-aral sa college. Nag-decide ko na tumigil ako sa pag-aaral dahil iba pa ang mentality ko noon (family first, oras na para magbalik ako sa parents ko, etc etc) nag trabaho ako sa casino for more than 2 years, maganda ang bayad, napagtapos ko yung bunso kong kapatid, at na-shoulder ko expenses sa bahay (wifi, upa, tuition at baon ni utol, monthly maintenance ng gamot ni mama sa kulungan), pero yung abuse ng tatay ko hindi natapos. Lahat ng gastos ko sa bahay noon, hindi pa pala sapat para sa kanya, everytime na made-delay yung bigay kong pera, ang daming hindi magandang salita ang naririnig ko sa kanya. There was a time na months niya kong di kinakausap dahil may nililigawan akong ka-work ko, maagang papasok, late uuwi, syempre hatid sundo. Every time na magbibigay ako ng pera every sahod ang lagi niyang sasabihin sakin, "ano to suhol mo sa pambabastos mo sakin?, and mind you never akong sumagot sa mga parents ko.
Nag decide kami ng partner ko na mag tanan na. After a while nag resign na din ako sa casino to pursue a job in engineering (BSEE ako sa UP). Kahit na alam akong I can perform as well as engineering gradutes if not better, hindi ako makakuha ng interview since wala akong experience sa field ko at hindi ako engineering graduate. Eventually natanggap ako as a CAD Operator sa isang contractor na nagfa-fabricate ng tanks, gumagawa ng piping, basically mechanical ang forte.
Ok naman yung work pero I know I can do better. Nag offer yung nanay ng aking SO na pag-aralin ako. Very supportive yung SO ko at yung kapatid ko. My SO said na it's all up to me dahil sususportahan niya ko no matter what.
4 years na kong AWOL, may chance ba na tanggapin pa ko? My last year in UP was a disaster, yung first sem may isa akong bagsak, second sem dalawa lang yung napasa out of 5 (I was very distracted kasi naghahanap na ko ng work at hirap na hirap kami financially). Given na ganyan yung scholastic record ko at mataas ang standards ni EEEI, tatanggapin kaya nila ako? I need advice guys, since very big decision ito para sa akin.
Edit - correction
Thanks everyone, and ingat sa COVID.

2020.09.28 01:23 FakeMango47 Keto friendly dinners that can be adapted for non-keto

Anyone have any recipes for a household that is half keto, half non-keto for dinner?
I’m going back on the keto band wagon and my partner won’t be. We’re looking at the best way to blend the two diets. Only caveat is not as heavy a focus on cheese and meat for the dinner (I will make up my fats elsewhere). Any veggie heavy/fish/chicken recipes would work.

2020.09.28 01:22 No-Ad-2882 How to improve my self esteem

I have a problem. I'm 27 years old and I never had a girlfriend. When I was in the seventh grade, a girl in my class told me that all of the girls were saying I was ugly. When she said that, my heart started beating really fast, my legs were shaking and I was sweating a little bit. A few weeks later, the same girl said I was ugly and stupid because I was in special education for math. When she said that, I felt like a big loser . When I was in school, I just didn't think any girl thought I was attractive. In school, guys would say that a girl liked me but the girl would say ewww no! and it was a large amount of girls saying that. I felt like a loser because I didn't think any girl wanted me. I was and still am very self conscious about about the way I look. My mom would call me handsome but I don't believe her. For the longest time, I couldn't look at myself in the mirror because I didn't like what I saw. When I was in school, I was jealous of the guys the girls liked. Everytime I see a guy with his female partner, I feel sad, jealous and envious because I want that as well. I just don't think I'm attractive. I feel like a loser because I'm 27 years old and I never had a girlfriend. There are times when I wish I was one of the best looking people in the world. I wish I had the looks of a male model. I want to forget about what the girl in my class said to me but for some reason I can't. I had a goal to find a job and I accomplished that. I work two jobs. Other goals include finding a girlfriend and getting my own place. What should I do to get females to find me attractive? What should I do to successfully approach females and socialize with them to the point they want to date me? what are some of the best places to meet women? What are some ways to be proactive about finding a girlfriend? I recently found out that I may be on the asperger's syndrome spectrum. Can a person with asperger's be successfull at dating? I just want to get females to find me attractive. i have a fear of never finding someone. The thought of never finding a girlfriend really scares me. I really want to find someone. If anyone can reach out to me, I would greatly appreciate it.

2020.09.28 01:22 minnesotatrans A Sample of a planned book on part of the history of TNA

Hey. So I got bored this weekend; and I wrote a little bit on TNA. Please let me know what you think.

Foreward
In the early-2000's, when the only major wrestling company in the United States was the WWE (then WWF before May 2002), many independent wrestling companies attempted to fill the gaps that the end of WCW and ECW created. Some, such as ROH, are still in existence today. The one that I intend to write about is of Impact Wrestling, known as TNA (Total Nonstop Action Wrestling) for many years. Here is a company that prided itself on being an alternative to the sports-entertainment style of the WWE. Innovations such as the X-Division and Knockouts made TNA known by many wrestling fans. However, in the long-run, the incompetence of many (from the owner to the creative team to older wrestlers) led to TNA becoming a shell of what it could have been. The purpose of this book is to offer an account of the history of Impact Wrestling from 2002 through 2015. The book will aim to offer readers a week-by-week account of what turned TNA Impact Wrestling from a show with potential, into a trainwreck that became almost comedic. Moments, such as booking Hulk Hogan over young talent such as Samoa Joe, is what kept TNA from becoming a major competitor with the WWE; and this book aims at explaining the issues to the reader. 
Chapter One: 2002
In March of 2001, World Championship Wrestling (WCW), the chief rival of WWF since 1988, was bought by the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) for a couple of million. WCW, a company that was once capable of sell over 40,000 seats by hyping only one match in 1998; and was valued at hundreds of millions by SFX Entertainment in 1999/2000, collapsed in sales and attendance in record time (to selling less than 5,000 paid at their flagship Pay Per View events) . Fans, craving cruiserweight action, would be unable to find a cruiserweight program in the WWF until 2002. Fans, looking for marquee matches between superstars such as Sting and Bill Goldberg would have to wait, sometimes (in the case of Sting) for over a decade. At the time, the (then) WWF in 2001 tried an invasion angle to enact matchups between WWF and WCW and ECW superstars. Sadly, the invasion angle failed due to a combination of bad booking and egos, meaning that millions of potential dollars were lost by November of 2001. Instead of WCW having its’ own show whilst showcasing new talent, the battle was between McMahon (Vince and Linda) vs. McMahon (Shane and Stephanie). For reference, in January of 2001, WWF RAW generated a 5.6 rating. In February of 2002, that number would sink in 4.4. WWE would attempt to recover by hiring more superstars from WCW, such as “Hollywood” Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, and Kevin Nash. None of these would raise ratings back to their peak. Fans turned off because they were alienated by the product. Something or someone had to occur in order to bring an alternate product to the fans. Enter Jeff Jarrett. Jeff Jarrett is part of a family of wrestling talent. Jeff’s father, Jerry, ran the Continental Wrestling Association for years in the late 1970’s through 1980’s, featuring such talent as Jimmy Hart and Jerry “the King” Lawler. The CWA received attention when Andy Kaufman, a comedian, stepped into the ring against Jerry Lawler. The CWA was a hot commodity in the mid-southern United States, with CWA’s wrestling shows generating high ratings and high attendance at the Mid-South Coliseum. In 2001, when WCW was on its’ death bed, Jerry Jarrett planned on purchasing the company whilst cutting costs by a significant amount. However, this would be pushed away by Vince McMahon and his quest for owning WCW. Jeff Jarrett, in the 90’s, before 2000, was a moderately successful wrestler. Flip-flopping between WCW and the WWF, Jarrett won the WCW United States Heavyweight Championship, the WWF World Tag Team Championship, the WWF European Championship, and the WWF Intercontinental Championship. Jeff was briefly a Four Horseman member, and wrestled at both WCW Starrcade and WWF WrestleMania. But Jeff could not break the glass ceiling, and was often placed in the midcard. That all changed towards late-1999. Jarrett was both a European and Intercontinental champion, hitting women with guitars. Things were looking good for Jeff until WWF No Mercy 1999. Jeff was scheduled to face off against Chyna, a woman’s wrestler, for the Intercontinental championship. But there was one issue that the WWF had neglected: the fact that Jarrett’s contract ran out right before his upcoming match against Chyna for the Intercontinental Championship. As champion, Jarrett knew that he could have walked out with the belt and skipped dropping his title to Chyna. Eventually, an agreement was made: Jeff could leave the WWF after dropping the belt to Chyna. Jeff Jarrett was also paid a six-figure bonus before he left. Once in WCW, Jeff Jarrett became a main eventer. Jarrett won the WCW World Heavyweight Championship four times, Jarrett was back home with his friend, Vince Russo. There was just one problem, however, WCW was falling apart at a record pace. Going from gaining $50 million in profit for 1998, WCW lost $62 million in 2000. Due to this massive loss, AOL-Time Warner did not believe that WCW was a suitable program for its’ TV; so in March of 2001, WCW was bought out by Vince McMahon. McMahon, mocking Jeff Jarrett’s saying, said that he was, "Capital G, Double-O, Double-N, Double-E – GOONNEE!” In other words, Jarrett was no longer welcome in the WWF. During a fishing trip with Jeff Jarrett, his father, and Bob Ryder, TNA at this time advertised itself as a family-friendly version of wrestling, concentrating on the moves rather than the gimmick. Looking at the early superstars, however, will show otherwise. The Rainbow Express was a group of gay heels, which were mocked by the Southern Fans. The Johnsons (Dick and Rod) were wrestlers who dressed up like penises. Dupps, with an incest gimmick, created the “Dupp Cup,” where people competed in. One would earn points in the Dupp Cup for, among other things, using a farm animal as a weapon, throwing someone through a table; and one could lose points for crying. None of this made sense; and curious fans who were willing to watch a PPV were alienated by the Dupp Cup. Other characters included the “Hot Shots,” which inserted items into their crotch and said, “we’re pricks, we are proud, and we are protruding.” This tag team died out pretty quickly. Another character that stunk up the upstart promotion was Puppet the Midget Killer, a midget who called himself a dwarf. His purpose on earth was to kill midgets and masturbate in a trash can, offering his “porridge” to an interviewer. Cheex, an obese wrestler, broke the ring prior to the first PPV and then nearly killed another wrestler, leading to Cheex’s termination in record time. Among other tasteless acts, Don Harris came to the ring once whilst wearing a Nazi symbol on his shirt. This was grounds for a brief suspension; but when Don Harris came back to TNA, he had Nazi symbols on his arms. Eventually, Ron Killings cut a promo on Ricky “the Dragon” Steamboat. Prior to cutting a promo with Steamboat, it must be said that earlier on in TNA, Killings was in a pointless feud with NASCAR driver Hermie Sadler and Sterlin Marlin. Anyway, back to the promo. In the promo, Ron remarked that Ricky was never a main eventer in the WWF because of the fact that the WWF held Steamboat back. “The Intercontinental belt was always for a second-class citizen. Oh yes! Oh yes, Dragon, fifteen years later, they pulling the same shiznit on me. But you know what? I am tired, I'm mad as hell, and I'm not gonna take it. You know where I'm comin' from, Dragon - you've been there. You can change all of this. You can do it. You make the decisions. And for all of us - make the right one." Steamboat, no doubt influenced by Killings talk about the WWF being discriminatory against Killings, said that Killings would get a shot against Shamrock at the next pay-per-view. 
Chapter Two: 2003
The arrival of Vince Russo was a shocker for most fans (to the point where commentator Mike Tenay said “Oh Shit!”). To those familiar with WCW, he was the antichrist – the one that led to the death of WCW. Russo, through his efforts, turned TNA into a joke in the minds of many. 
Chapter Three: 2004
TNA would have a one-year deal with Fox Sports Network for Impact. Dixie Carter remarked that, “"Total Nonstop Action Wrestling has continued to grow and exceed expectations over our history. We are excited that this opportunity with FSN and Universal Studios Orlando will expose a wider range of viewers to our distinctive brand of professional wrestling” This would be perfect for any wrestling company, being able to hype their product on TV. Of course, this being TNA, the company would end up making several mistakes in the process that made the whole year on TV worthless. For starters, Impact would be shown Friday afternoons at three p.m., whilst most everybody was either ending their school day, or, at work. 
Chapter Four: 2005
2004 ended with questions. Could TNA maintain its’ slot on Fox Sports Net and introduce themselves to curious viewers? Could TNA Against All Odds had bizarre things happen in a three-hour period. NASCAR commentator (and someone who I have not heard of until writing this book) Jeff Hammond teaming up with 3 Live Kru. The show then continued with Abyss beating Jeff Hardy in a Full Metal Mayhem match when Jeff Hardy decided to kick some tables while Abyss retrieved a #1 contender’s contract (one that he would never cash in; and in fact would be lost to AJ Styles at Lockdown). The main event was Unbreakable featured a classic three-way battle between Samoa Joe, Christopher Daniels, and AJ Styles for the X-Division Championship. After twenty two minutes of highflying action, AJ Styles pinned Christopher Daniels and won the X-Division Championship. This match would be Dave Meltzer’s first (and only) five star match in the history of TNA. 
Chapter X: 2007
What was rumored, according to Scott Hall, was that he suffered from Food Poisoning and would be unable to team with Kevin Nash and Samoa Joe against Kurt Angle, AJ Styles, and Tomko. The match was nearly ruined. Given an open mic, Samoa Joe went to the ring; and before he announced the replacement for Scott Hall, Eric Young, Joe had a few words to say. “You know what, I’ll tell you what. Backstage, I was told to come out here and they said “Joe, the fans love you; and if there’s one thing they trust is you. And we want you to tell them that Scott Hall no-showed this event tonight… He punked out on me, and he punked on every single fan in this building tonight. And then it got me thinking, I was back there and I said “they just gave me a live mic on PPV”. I like to get a few things off my chest. Number one, in TNA, we have two types of wrestlers: we have TNA diehards who come here and entertain and bust their ass every night of the week. And we got Superstars who think they can come and do whatever they want, however they feel like it. We have superstars who come out here and not only screw us – the hardworking wrestlers of TNA – but they screw each and every fan who paid to see them no matter how old they are… TNA is the Motor City Machine Guns coming down here and busting their ass and trying to make a break in the business.” The words that came out of the mouth of Samoa Joe were accurate. The good chunk of TNA fans paid money to see Alex Shelly, Eric Young, Jay Lethal, AJ Styles, and Samoa Joe. What they did not pay money to see was wrestlers who were limited in the ring 
Chapter X: 2009
Destination X was such a horrible PPV that Figure Four Weekly commentator Bryan Alvarez tried to get himself a refund from the PPV. Ironically, Christopher Daniels would get “fallen angel” chants on him while he dressed up and won as the wrestler Suicide. Victory Road 2009 was an awful PPV – and not just because of the Jenna Morasca vs. Sharmell match. The whole show featured botches, out-of place finishes, and what not. The show started off with a Tara vs. Angelina Love Knockouts Championship match that ended with Tara, who had been champion for only a couple of weeks, being pinned with her foot under the rope. The foot should have prevented the three-count, but the referee probably said to himself “this is TNA, who cares?” Matt Morgan vs. Daniels was a drawn out and boring affair, which is really saying something because Christopher Daniels is a great wrestler for his time. Dr. Stevie vs. Abyss became a No Disqualification match, made so that Abyss could overact with Dr. Stevie on a Taser shot. Then came the Jenna Morasca vs. Sharmell match. Jenna Morasca won Survivor years prior to the match; and she had hung out with the Main Event Mafia for some time. It is rumored that Jenna Morasca was given a HALF MILLION DOLLARS to appear a few times over a couple of months whilst wrestlers such as Taylor Wilde had to take second jobs just to make ends meet. 
Over the years, you probably have seen matches that you do not like. Regardless, these matches had some sort of redeeming element into it: perhaps the match was short; perhaps there was an exciting spot. This match was given a rare “minus five stars” by Bryan Alvarez. For many minutes, the Impact Zone saw slapping that did not connect, a lewd pin, and the fact that Morasca – with no wrestling experience and whose celebrity fame was from many years ago on a reality show – won the match.
A problem with TNA was the fact that the company cared little for its’ undercard and non-former WWE wrestlers. Take for example Jimmy Rave, a wrestler who was addicted to drugs during his time in TNA:
“my 2009 run, I was a complete drug addict to be honest. I didn't give a damn about wrestling because I just cared about scoring more pills and numbing myself. Which people probably could notice about what kind of shape I was in and how I looked and even my wrestling.”
Eventually, Rave was fired from TNA because creative had nothing for him to do. Rave went to rehab and cleaned himself up. TNA, however, had a significantly higher amount of trouble with their drug testing results. According to a Congressional Committee result in 2009, fifteen wrestlers tested positive for banned steroids. Wrestlers also tested positive for opiates and amphetamines, marijuana, and benzodiazepines. The sad thing about Jenna Morasca, more than the terrible match she had with Sharmell is the fact that she was paid more money single-handedly "I was working at Sunglass Hut at a mall in Mississauga, a job that could be maintained by a monkey, so standing around for six hours earning minimum wage wasn’t the issue. But after serving this one customer for an extended period of time he ever so politely uttered, ‘Aren’t you the TNA Woman’s Knockout Champion?’ I handed in my resignation that day." (1) Wrestlers, unlike many sports stars, are independent contractors. Said wrestlers must pay for their own travels, be it on a bus or plane. Wrestlers also have to pay for their health insurance. Wrestlers are lucky if they get retirement benefits. Only in rare instances, such as WCW in the 90’s, are wrestlers given guaranteed contracts. It is the opinion of the author of this book that no wrestler in a major wrestling company should have to pay for their own living expenses or health insurance as long as they are wrestling for said company. 
Chapter X: 2010
2010 began with optimism for TNA. Hulk Hogan, arguably the most recognized name in professional wrestling, was set to debut on the January 4 edition of Impact. There would be no competition that week; so TNA would try to put on a home-run performance that would lead to future prosperity for TNA. In fact, the resulting move to Monday nearly killed TNA. The show opened with a Steel Asylum match. The rules of a Steel Asylum match are basically the same as a cage match; but the area to escape the cage would be reduced to a small hole on top of the middle of the cage. Because the steel was red, it was difficult for viewers both home and at the arena to see what the match was. Somehow, the match ended in a “no contest,” leading to chants of “This is Bullshit.” What a way to start your debut on Monday nights! 
Jeff Hardy decided to return for the first time since 2006 without any prior hype. The return of a wrestler who was world champion in the WWE just six months prior could have increased PPV buyrates, or, at the least popped a rating on TV. Instead, he (Hardy) just showed up and hit Homicide with a chair.
Then we have Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff. The two were hyped as the saviors of TNA. Ironically, fifteen years earlier, these same two men innovated wrestling with the creation of Monday Nitro; but that was the catch: fifteen years ago they were creative. The problem with these two former superstars was that they believed that by imitating 1995 wrestling that they would generate ratings. But through a combination of sheer incompetence (pushing the same few wrestlers for years for years) and get-rich quick schemes (by doing stupid matches on TV that could have popped a buyrate on PPV), the two were cast out of WCW, and the company they ran would go in the toilet. Dixie Carter, knowing this presumably, did not have to hire Hogan and Bischoff to run the company. Oh, Dixie.
When Bischoff cut a promo, he asked SoCal Val to give him the script for the night. Eric then proceeded to rip up the script and throw it into the crowd, giving himself a new script in the process. What the crowd did not know was that the script ripped and thrown into the crowd was a real script; so security had to retrieve the script pieces from the crowd. Why on earth would Bischoff do a stupid thing is beyond my comprehension.
On the November 18th edition of TNA ReAction, Hulk Hogan decided to (as a work) break kayfabe and ramble about how things would change. "No wonder this company was in the shape it's in. It's time to get rid of the trash, the garbage, the worthless piece of crap out here, and we started with Dixie Carter. Yeah, we're gettin' very real around here. We are so, real, it's unbelievable. Because, if you don't get over like I said, you're fired. If you don't draw numbers, if you don't entertain, if you don't put asses in seats, if you don't put the coinage in the piggy bank, you're fired. No more games. No more, "Kayfabe." "It's a work." "I've won thirty-four tag team belts." Who gives a damn, how many fake belts you won. If you don't draw money, you get fired around here. If you don't put asses in seats, you’re gone." (1) Hogan’s idea was that only people who were marketable would stick around in TNA. The problem was that many wrestlers, who had in-ring talent, were ignored compared to the same-old-same-old of Hogan. 
Chapter X: 2011
In many ways, TNA in 2010 was a disaster for the company. Despite possessing numerous talent that could have led to a respectable look for the company, the booking led by Dixie Carter, Eric Bischoff, Vince Russo, and Hulk Hogan, led to TNA declining in fan base. Mr. Anderson And what about Kevin Nash and Booker T? They re-entered the WWE during their Royal Rumble to a massive Pop. There was a match between Kurt Angle and Jeff Jarrett with the stipulation being that if Kurt won his match, he would be able to regain custody of his children. Of course, Jeff beat Kurt clean in the middle of the ring, putting an end to that feud. After the match, four months after Angle hinted retirement, Kurt left his boots in the ring as a sign that he was done. The show ended with a terrible Hardy vs. Anderson ladder match for Anderson’s world title. Despite facing a ton of drug issues – and despite there being a world title change just a few weeks earlier – the decision was made to give Hardy the World Title back. Victory Road 2011 has been hailed by many wrestling fans as one of the worst wrestling events in the history of professional wrestling. For the 17,000 people (1) that bought the show, they bought what had been voted later by Wrestling Observer fans as the worst wrestling event of 2011. The show started off with a falls count anywhere match between Bully Ray and Tommy Dreamer. Both were past their prime; and the match showed. TNA believed that Bully Ray in the 69 position with a blowup doll would attract PPV viewers. The TNA Knockout’s Tag Team Title match between Rosita and Sarita vs. Angelina Love and Winter was so bad (due to chaotic run-ins) that it was rated negative three stars by Bryan Alvarez. In a first blood match between Hernandez and Matt Morgan, Hernandez was caught bleeding himself; yet he still won by throwing blood onto Matt Morgan. The fans were pissed. 

Then the main event occurred. Jeff Hardy, who has had numerous problems with drugs, came out to the ring in the infamous no condition to perform state. When seeing Hardy in this mess, the referee lifted up the X sign whilst Eric Bischoff came out and told TNA World Champion Sting to end the match as quickly as possible. The match lasted about a minute-and-a-half. Sting hooked Hardy up for a pin and easily won. The fans, who were, whilst not expecting a five-star match, expecting a decent fight, chanted “bullshit.” Sting, understanding the issues with the audience, said, “I agree,” The show ended with a recap of the event, as if TNA fans wanted to see the monstrosity of Sting vs. Jeff Hardy. TNA offered six month of free on-demand; but TNA was comically missing the point. To the 17,000 the purchased the pay-per-view event, they were appalled that the company would allow an intoxicated wrestler compete under a “no condition to perform state” 

Conclusion:
During the agreement, it was alleged that Billy Corgan offered to loan money to TNA and Dixie Carter in exchange for becoming President of the company. As part of the loan, Dixie pledged all of her interest into the loan, meaning that if she defaulted on loan payments, Corgan would then own TNA. TNA’s liabilities (such as debt) were more than their assets, according to Corgan, and so a lawsuit was filed. Before the lawsuit, Dixie told the remaining wrestlers that the WWE was in the hunt to purchase TNA and its’ video library. "On Oct. 12, 2016, Corgan notified defendants that he was exercising his right, as holder of (Carter's) voting rights in Impact Ventures, to remove all of the managers of Impact Ventures and replace them with Corgan's designees." In January of 2017, while the lawsuit from Billy Corgan and the implication of being bought by WWE was on the minds of many TNA officials, Anthem Sports made the announcement: they had officially bought TNA. Anthem Sports is a Canadian-media company that specializes in Sports Broadcasting, having purchased companies such as AXS TV and Fight Network. "We are thrilled to have acquired TNA Impact Wrestling," Anthem Sports and Entertainment Corp. Executive Vice President Ed Norholm said. "As we grow Anthem's linear, digital and mobile platforms globally, top tier content with global appeal is key to that success and this acquisition is a perfect strategic addition to our portfolio." Yes, to consider TNA a “top tier content” with Sharmell and Jenna Morasca outweighing action on WWE NXT or AEW Dynamite. 
"Anthem has been a great partner for many years," Carter said. "We have worked hard to find the right company who would acquire TNA, use its strategic influence and have a long-term commitment to the brand."
Wait a few years and see how top-tier TNA becomes.
TNA, in the past eighteen years of existence, has developed wrestling angles that rival WCW’s in the late-90’s and early-2000’s. On one hand, TNA revolutionized the industry with the X-Division, having high flyers jump on and above the ropes trying to catch the X-Division Championship.

2020.09.28 01:22 MatzoeseFritoese Yuumi Rant 2.0

OK, I have to post this post again, since it got removed from a moderator last time, I don't really see where I was offensive but hey, I'll try again.
I just wanted to ask the whole community their opinion about Yuumi. I started playing a bit more ranked lately, and it crossed my mind pretty early, that Yuumi seems kinda unbalanced. I mainly play jungle and most of the jungle games I play Shaco, so an Assassin (kind of), that's supposed to oneshot carries, or if you go ap at least be able to outplay them with boxes. When you normally face a shield support, you're able to kill the support with the help of your team, and after that kill the carry.
The problem with Yuumi is, that you're not able to attack her, as long as she stays inside of one person. So you ALWAYS have to kill the carry FIRST. That's the problem. With two items and cdr runes, Yuumi will be able to heal the carry WAY TOO QUICK. Especially some combinations with certain champs (for example Tristana) just makes her really frustrating to play against, because even if you don't feed her in the early game, they will just shred through your whole team in the late game. PLUS: Yuumi will probably not go flash because if the carry's dead she's most likely also dead, so they can go barrier + heal + exhaust. Try killing any carry with those summs AND a Yuumi healing her constantly.
Also you have to keep in mind, at least 3 players on your team will be randoms, so you can't communicate as well as you would with a 5 man premade team. And there's always a chance that one of those randoms might be having a bad day, and if you give kills to the carry with a yuumi in their back, the game will be over 9/10 times. / Unless you only play Flex Queue

//This part is now edited, the rest was mostly copied from the first post:
I feel like the reward you get, compared to the skill needed to play Yuumi on a decent level, is sadly way out of proportion. There are other champs that are not mechanically challenging, but with Yuumi you could probably watch a Netflix Series, while getting LP. And that's because you dont even have to move. You only have to use your spells and summoners. So you won't have to think about positioning, because your adc will be doing that part, as well as looking out for an assassin that would like to sneak past your adc to kill their shield support. And it all makes you focus more on other parts of the game, that are anyways more important to a support (looking at the map, which objectives to get, spotting the enemy jungler or a roaming mid etc.)
The biggest problem is, that you can't really balance her, I mean her E mana cost goes up and up but somehow they always find a way to use it, and you can't really change stats with her main game mechanic: staying inside of another champion.
And before anyone critizises me on this one. Yes I know, it also depends on how the ADC plays, I mean you literally have to walk for a Yuumi most of the time, so if you're not premade with your ADC it WILL BE HARDER. But there are many players always looking for duo partners to climb with, so if you look for a duo adc, you will find one.

Let me know what you guys think of my opinion.

2020.09.28 01:20 boboddy18 The most helpful resource I’ve found so far

HelloTalk is a language learning app. My GOD, I have been using this app for 7 days and I am actually thinking in my target language and instinctually speaking my target language instead of my native language and other spoken language at home. My favorite thing about it is that there is a correction feature that allows you to correct your partner and your partner to correct you. People are also very fond of voice messages. I have had no shortage of people to talk to, and have overall thoroughly enjoyed myself. I just wanted to spread the love!

2020.09.28 01:17 JDscrublord How do I find an autism specialist?

Okay. So I've only just recently been diagnosed with ADHD after my psych realized that I did not have bipolar type 2 (like within this year), have been on Adderall for a few months, and its all great for the most part. However I've also been living with my two wonderful partners for the last year, mostly away from my parents (esp recently what with the pandemic- I'm in the US if that provides any context...). During this time, there are some behavior things coming up that I haven't done in more than a decade. I did some research because I've always been kind of curious if I was on the spectrum.
And I'm coming to the conclusion that I might be and have masked without even realizing it, so I'm thinking of looking for an ADHD/Autism specialist. I'm sad because that means I'd have to stop seeing my current therapist, esp because I'm broke and don't have insurance to see two at once, but ultimately I know this is for the better. She's been more than helpful with dealing with things like depression and anxiety, but some tactics have felt more like scotch tape instead of spackling for holes, if you catch my metaphor. Coping mechanisms only helped so much in college and so forth, so I think working with someone who actually is specialized in ADHD and also Autism might fo even more good!
It... it's probably obvious I have ADHD since I have to provide a dissertation to provide context for my situation but anyway.
What concerns me is seeking out "treatment" for autism, because its not so much that I'm seeking it out, I just want to know for sure if I have it? And I don't want to accidentally stumble into ABA because my natural inclination to be a people pleaser in addition to that could result in a degrading of my mental health.
My undergraduate degree is in psychology, so I can kind of work through the tedious part of finding specialists. I know that self-diagnosis is legitimate, but... I don't know, I think I want to know For Sure just so I have a name for it? Part of it is also a bit of anxiety, like, I don't want to use a label for me if it's incorrect and step on any toes within the community.
How did you find out? My therapist suggested I contact my psychiatrist to see if he has any ideas and I plan on doing that. What does therapy look like in this context or would you recommend it at all? I still need to see someone for ADHD-specific things, but are there specific terms that I should look out for, like avoiding practitioners of ABA or conversely words that tell you "Ah, this practitioner is a safe person to see"...
Omg that was so long I'm so sorry 😅
Answer in whatever capacity you like and thank you in advance for your time and such 💚

2020.09.28 01:17 mamaprobs2465 AITA for trying to become friends sith my ex husband’s girlfriend?

My ex husband Daniel and I got divorced for mutual reasons around a year ago but we still share/coparent our two amazing kids. When my ex started getting serious, with his girlfriend Emily, I wanted to make sure that I met her before she met our children because a new partner changes the family dynamic.
When I met Emily I kinda had bad vibes (too young, eccentric style, etc.) but wanted to give her a chance for my exes sake. I invited her out to lunch and we had a decent conversation but I felt like she was kind of closeted off. However I knew Emily was important to my ex and I made an effort to reach out to her.
Since lunch, I have texted her and tried to form a relationship with her. But yesterday Daniel texted me out of the blue and told me to stop trying to build a relationship with Emily. He said Emily is uncomfortable by me and wants me to “stay in my lane” and Emily thinks I’m trying to intimidate her.
I told my ex to send me one message that was “intimidating” and he couldn’t because all I’ve done was JUST BE NICE. Literally, I just try to make conversation/invite her to hang out/send her things I think she’d like. She is the one who stops responding or just doesn’t respond. To me this comes off as gaslightish; she is manipulating reality to make it seem like I’m trying to hurt her when I tried to be nice.
I told me ex that I think Emily is trying to cut him off from his family. Since we divorced him and I haven’t had a single problem. I think she is too young to understand healthy coparenting and accept that I will always be his family because of our children. I told my ex that I don’t want Emily around my children if she doesn’t accept me and them as a part of his life.
I’m positing because I really want to understand what I did wrong. I just want everyone to be happy and I don’t want drama at all. Is trying to be friends with your partner’s children’s mom really that weird?? I don’t think it is, but I wanted to see if others thought I was being weird/mean in anyway.

2020.09.28 01:16 Siraloneknights Will I ever find love as a 5'5 ish 5'6 male?

Ik another sad and or vent post but I'm genuinely curious.
I'm 19m and never had a girlfriend, never kissed anyone, never even held hands with a girl. The loneliness and isolation is literally torture and I cry myself to sleep every night.
I just want to be in a loving wholesome relationship. I dont care about having sex or swapping partners often or any of that shit. I would be VERY happy with just meeting one person falling in love and spending my life with them.
I know allot of guys are not aware when a girl likes them but personally I believe I am a very aware and observant person. Really shy and introverted let's me think and observe things allot and holy shit its fucking sad. The only girl who ever liked me a was a slightly overweight girl in middle school that I didnt feel the same for. Honestly the fact that she had a crush on me is keeping me going on the slim hope that someone can love me.
Objectively speaking I would be considered ugly I think? I'm short for a guy, have a big nose, and have a receding hairline. (Fuck genetics) I'm not overweight and go to the gym 6 days a week so I am fit. And if I look in the mirror I dont think I'm ugly but that fact only one girl has liked me in 19 years says otherwise.
It fucking sucks because I think I'm a good person at least, very thoughtful and caring and loving deep conversation and connecting with others. I believe I get along with others really good as well.
I would LOVE to be their for someone. To provide love and affection. To spend time and bond with someone. To have a family would make me so happy.
I feel so alone and these 6 months of lockdown in the U.S has made it even worse.
I just want to be loved for fucks sake.

2020.09.28 01:15 kidxsaturn Mice in our apartment, anyway effective way to get rid of them for good??

Hello fellow jersey city residents! Last week my partner & I saw a mouse crawl out of our stove. The next morning we told our landlord, we deep cleaned our place, plugged up any holes/cracks we saw with Grade A steel wool, sealed all our food, put traps down (glue & poison bait), and the landlord sent over a fumigator. We have peppermint/eucalyptus oil sprayed in our kitchen and have cotton balls filled with them inside our cabinets.
However, all of that has been completely useless, we can hear them scurry in our kitchen at night. After we clean up from cooking we can hear them getting ready to look for food. It’s been about over a week since we’ve seen the first mouse and we haven’t caught any in the traps or smelled a dead one that might’ve eaten the bait. Our landlord has denied us the option of getting a cat and now these mice are literally driving us insane. Any tips on how to get rid of them? Or tips on breaking this lease before it gets worse?

2020.09.28 01:14 Throwuhway0987 My mom is keeping kind of a big secret from me

My Mother is a lesbian who has been with her partner since she came out to my dad and got a divorce 27 years ago. She and her partner are very outspoken Republicans, and my mother has been a vocal critic of gay marriage since I was a child. My step-mom has been a huge part of my life since day one, and is especially close to my son and my husband. This person is someone we consider immediate family, not someone who my mom keeps from us. A little more about my mother; she is a difficult woman. Period. She has always had impossible expectations of others (whether they be family or strangers), and expects everyone to be perfectly mindful, self-aware, and honest. She does not hold herself to these standards. She also does not offer grace easily, or at all. She demands perfection of others, while she gaslights, manipulates, and makes excuses when it comes to her own innumerable failures or short comings. She especially hates dishonesty, and considers withholding information “a sin of omission.” To her, keeping a secret is as bad as telling a bold face lie. Our relationship can be strained and very exhausting at times, so I try to keep most interactions light and superficial. That being said, she is still a big part of my life. We are far from no contact. In fact, things have been really really good the last few months. I caught COVID at the beginning of the summer, and have had a very long and difficult recovery. I don’t know for sure if my illness is the reason, but things have certainly been more tender between us during this time. Today that all came to a screeching halt when my sister sat me down and told me that my mom and step-mom eloped (!!!!) 3 months ago. My sister has only known for a week, and was sort of sitting on the info while she waited for my mom to tell me herself. My mother’s reason for waiting so long to tell my sister is because “ [stepmom] just wanted it to be the two of us. She didn’t want anyone to know or come, and then I just forgot!” Now it should be mentioned that my sister and I have had many heated arguments about gay marriage with my mom. I myself am a Christian, but have always strongly supported gay marriage. My mother (who claims to be a Christian but isn’t practicing) has always said she believes it is a Christian sacrament, and because of that, gay people should at best only be allowed civil unions. She was so strongly against it, that she repeatedly refused to marry my step-mom, despite SM’s fervent desire to do so, and told us about it on a regular basis. However, despite our disagreements and my disappointment in my mother’s stance on gay marriage (and actions against it by her voting choices), I would have totally supported them getting married because it is a huge step for them. This is something my step-mom has wanted for a really long time, and I really wish I could have been there, and I’m sad that I wasn’t included. But I can respect why people might want a private ceremony. What I’m struggling with here, what has wrecked me, is this big secret my mom has kept from me for 3 months. I realize she probably feels like a hypocrite on multiple counts, and doesn’t want to be judged, but ffs, she finally married the woman who helped raise me. Don’t I deserve to know? Don’t I deserve to at least hear it from them, not my sister, and not months after the fact? What do I do? The burden of bringing this up shouldn’t be on me, and I don’t want to “confront” her, because she most certainly will gaslight the shit out of me. Maybe this seems like a dumb problem to you guys, but I’m absolutely gutted and don’t know how to handle it or move on.
TL;DR historically difficult, ultra-republican lesbian mom who has always been against gay marriage decided to secretly elope with her partner (that I consider family) of 27 years, and is keeping it a secret from me. I’m devastated that she told my sister but not me, and scared she is going to gaslight me if I tell her how I feel.

2020.09.28 01:13 MommaX2Barista Siren’s Eye ideas??!!!

So I recently had my P&D meeting...after finishing my first 6weeks. My store manager noticed the writing on my name badge and asked who did them. When I replied I did, she asked if I would do them for all partners at the store AND asked if I would like to be in charge of “Siren’s Eye” for our store! I was so stoked!!
Like my store manager actually took notice of my creativity and hard work! So I was wondering... what do y’all do at your stores? Interesting quotes or sayings? Interesting or eye catching displays?

2020.09.28 01:12 ThrowRAsplit Splitting living expenses with big income differences, helpp

Hello there, I’m not a native speaker, on mobile, first time poster and its late, so sorry in advance for any errors.
We recently started talking about how living expenses should be splitted and we got into an argument because we obviously have different opinions.
A little backstory: So I 22(f) make significantly less than my partner 33(m) of 4 years. We met as roommates and have been living together since. I had a “minijob” (10h/week) while studying, but obviously never made much (about 450€/mo), so I only paid half the rent (400) and he covered everything else (food, utilies, going out). This was fine for us since we both agreed that I just wasn’t at that point in my life yet because I’m so much younger.
So I finally will be starting a full time (40h/week) apprenticeship in my field of work. The pay is about 1300€/mo. My partner makes about 3700€/mo. I always kinda assumed that we would split the rent in percentage according to our income (3700=74%, 1300=26%) once I started working. My income will increase to at least 2500€ after 2 years so the differences won’t stay that extreme. But my partner is set on the idea of splitting it 50/50 which would mean I’d have to spend approx. 900€ on rent+utilities alone (we will move to another city next week) which I think is unfair as it would be over 2/3 of my income. Thing is, that our recurring expenses are mainly that high because he is not willing to lower his living standarts. His reasoning is, that he has a demanding job that comes with long working hours (50-70h/week) so he should not have to pay more since he only earns that much because he works so much more. Now he’s pissed and says that he paid significantly more for four years and now that I’m able to I should just pay half even if it means that I still won’t have any money to spend on myself, even though I work full time now. I know that in my current mindset I would get bitter in the next 2 years just watching him spend his money lavishly without thinking twice and me sitting there counting my cents.
Am I just being a stingy/greedy unfair bitch or are his expectations unrealistic? Have any of you been in situations with high income differences and how did you manage this stuff?

I just want to be in a loving wholesome relationship. I dont care about having sex or swapping partners often or any of that shit. I would be VERY happy with just meeting one person falling in love and spending my life with them.
I know allot of guys are not aware when a girl likes them but personally I believe I am a very aware and observant person. Really shy and introverted let's me think and observe things allot and holy shit its fucking sad. The only girl who ever liked me a was a slightly overweight girl in middle school that I didnt feel the same for. Honestly the fact that she had a crush on me is keeping me going on the slim hope that someone can love me.
Objectively speaking I would be considered ugly I think? I'm short for a guy, have a big nose, and have a receding hairline. (Fuck genetics) I'm not overweight and go to the gym 6 days a week so I am fit. And if I look in the mirror I dont think I'm ugly but that fact only one girl has liked me in 19 years says otherwise.
It fucking sucks because I think I'm a good person at least, very thoughtful and caring and loving deep conversation and connecting with others. I believe I get along with others really good as well.
I would LOVE to be their for someone. To provide love and affection. To spend time and bond with someone. To have a family would make me so happy.
I feel so alone and these 6 months of lockdown in the U.S has made it even worse.
I just want to be loved for fucks sake.

2020.09.28 01:11 iwnbl I keep reliving the same nightmare and it's killing me.

I just need to get this out in some form.
I've had trust issues for a long time in romantic relationships, starting at about 15 years old. Im 30 now and still dealing with the same shit. In the past 15 years, I've had 5 breakups and they all had to do with me and my trust issues. Basically I'm a flight risk. Constantly in fight or flight mode and I'm exhausted all the time. I'm afraid of being made a fool because I have been so many times.
Every breakup makes my trust issues worse. I don't know how to heal without a partner who will work with me.
Today my boyfriend and I broke up. He is the sweetest, gentlest, and most patient person. And he's over my shit. And it stings. He told me my highs and lows scare him. He told me he doesnt want all my problems to become his problems. He told me he thinks I believe all my problems will be solved if we're together.
I was speechless. I feel squashed. I'm offended to my core. I'm angry that people flatter themselves like that... that I'm only ok if we're together. Like it's impossible for me to want someone without needing them.
I won't say I'm surprised because I was afraid he was pulling away, which of course made me pull away and everything got too difficult. I'm tired, though. Why do I have to be ok all the time? Why is it not ok to not be ok? I've never judged another person for being low. It stings so bad to have my partner lose love for me because of my lows.
I understand the weight of my issues is heavy and no one's responsibility but my own. I just cannot stand being here again. Again. Fucking again. At 30.
I've been working so hard to improve my life and I still get hit by the bus.
I want to be loved for all my crazy and my cracks and bruises. I want to be taken care of for once. I'm so homesick for a person that doesn't even exist. Im embarrassed to be left again. To have lost love again. For another person to never look back on us and think, wow she was the one.
This feels like hell, experiencing the same thing over and over. Im exhausted. I feel so done
