I was 17 when I moved to Oakridge, Oregon with my dad and older brother to get away from the busy city and be out in the city. I was set to start at Oakridge High the next day. I’d have to get all the rest I could. We arrived at our new house at 3pm. It was a nice two floor house, 3 bedrooms 2 bathrooms, a basement and a big backyard. I grabbed a few boxes and walked inside after my brother and set them down in the almost empty living room and went out to grab more. We finished bringing the boxes in by 5pm and had separated the boxes into our stuff and house stuff. I walked upstairs to check out the place while my dad and brother were organizing their stuff. Upstairs was 5 doors, 2 on the left 2 on the right and 1 straight on. The door straight in front of me caught my eye and I walked towards it, and went to grab the door. I tried turning the knob but it was firmly stuck and I began turning it really hard till I heard an audible pop and the door swung open. I stood back up and looked into the doorway, a set of stairs leading up into the darkness, I grabbed my phone and turned the flashlight on and shined it up there. Still dark.
I breathed deeply before heading up and taking my first step when a cold breeze washed over me. But I continued on my way up, even though the feeling of anxiety was rising within me. I got to the top step when the door shut and I ran down and tried to open it but no luck. I went back up the stairs and looked around for a vent to call down. I looked around and around and didn’t see anything, only boxes of stuff from what I assumed were the previous owner’s things. I grabbed a box and began to look through it and see a photo book and journal and began reading through it.
August 3rd, 1872,
To whoever is reading this, be warned. There is evil in this town in the form of a being who presents themselves as human. But is in fact a blood-sucking monster from the depths of hell. They are cold to the touch and will try their hardest to….
I heard my dad call my name and grabbed the journal and hid it in my hoodie pocket and came down as he pulled the door hard and looked at me.

2022.01.27 23:03 GravitationalOno I tried to explain minimax to myself. Can you check if I got it? (And a few questions)

Using the pseudocode as the foundation:
``` function minimax(node, depth, maximizingPlayer) is if depth = 0 or node is a terminal node then return the heuristic value of node if maximizingPlayer then value := −∞ for each child of node do value := max(value, minimax(child, depth − 1, FALSE)) return value else (* minimizing player *) value := +∞ for each child of node do value := min(value, minimax(child, depth − 1, TRUE)) return value
``` The way I understand it, Minimax has three sections:
The first if assigns a score at terminal condition
The second and third if do the same thing, which is to:
Get the value of each child node if it is a terminal node and if not, run minimax so that each child of the child can be assessed for value if it is a terminal node.
When it finally hits a terminal node, the function starts working backwards.
The terminal moves are the first to get a value, and the minimax calculation that goes with the player at the level above, chooses that move.
This is what's happening with this snippet in the pseudocode:
for each child of node do value := min(value, minimax(child, depth − 1, TRUE)) return value In other words, the minimizing player takes the smallest of the values that result from minimax being run on the child nodes. These values are obtained because we are finally at a terminal condition, and we can make use of the first if in minimax. The values are associated with a move.
When the minimizing player has chosen the smallest, then the function steps up one level and the maximizing player chooses the largest of the choices at his level.
This part of the pseudocode now has values to sort: for each child of node do value := max(value, minimax(child, depth − 1, FALSE)) return value The values are carried over from the previous level, which are in turn associated with a move.
So a few questions to aid my comprehension:
1) This maximizing player is choosing among moves that may not have led to the terminal moves where we began our journey, is it? Just because we started with a certain move that led to a terminal condition, we are not necessarily tracing the proper moves back to that terminal condition. Another branch may be the optimal move.
2) I imagine minimax as drawing out the tree, and then this value part of the function is just waiting in the wings to be activated until it bubbles up from the bottom. Is that a fair way of looking at it?
3) Why can I just use a single board and just keep reverting back to the previous state, when countless states of this board exist -- for each child of node, and for each child of node after that? Is it because of scope? They're just passed on to the next child and are not referred to outside of this chain?
4) Also, if each child of node is generated with a for loop, this means that the minimax iterates from left to right, and in games like tic-tac-toe, where there is no score, just winnelosetie, the function will tend to choose the first win, which is the left-most choice, right?
5) In trying to envision what the computer is doing during minimax, I see branches going in two directions when minimax first assesses a node:
It iterates "horizontally" by placing a marker for each available move. It also iterates "vertically" because once a move is chosen, the the other side starts placing a marker for each available move.
If I'm using minimax for a game like Connect Four, where the gameboard is assessed for scores, is there a possibility that minimax will put me on a longer path to a win?
If a board's score is composed of, say, 1000 points for 4 in a row and 10 points for 3 in a row, would the minimax steer me to a board that's more filled out with a bunch of 4-in-a-rows and 3-in-a-rows instead of a board that would end the game in two moves because it only had a 4-in-a-row worth 1000 points?

2022.01.27 23:03 breakingpoint26 Success can take a lifetime, but there are plenty of really young successful people with grand accomplishments. Also an open letter to this “society”.

The path to success is lonely, but most people don’t go through it completely alone….
Unfortunately, our starting circumstances in life are completely out of control. This can make transitioning to independence/success as an adult harder as well.
Life can deal us some shit cards, and if I could I’d shove the cards that life gave me right up it’s ass. IDGAF if it’s “God trying to challenge me”. I have never actually heard an answer back from praying to God, perhaps it is all psychological/chemical reactions that make us think we “feel God”. Because one time I did but it wore off after a few hours after I started watching “sinful” shows.
This is Reddit, it is overly common to see outliers, because this is naturally where people come to talk about their unique circumstances.
Sometimes I feel like they want me to be like them, like the incels. I hate their ideology, but I grew up massively bullied and have also been told how “ugly” I am a lot. That and being stunted in every other aspect of life keeps me from even being able to make any serious attempts at dating, or even general social (too insecure to even try and make friends, because I realize I’m too much of a manchild for 26, regardless of it being due to abuse or trauma or whatever or not).
If my brain has been rewired to completely convince me of negative and depressing outcomes being true and inevitable, it feels disturbingly real to me, and it’s not like I have enough “real” experience to counteract and debunk those thoughts/beliefs/feelings.
All the teens and young 20s having romantic and sexual relationships, are kind of legendary to me, including (hell ESPECIALLY) the lesser looking and/or more awkward ones.
Guys, I don’t care if you’re not getting women who are “10s” (stupid rating system). The fact that any women are into you as more than a friend (not to downplay or devalue friendship) ESPECIALLY at such a young age, is pretty fucking amazing.
You don’t want to be in your 30s or 40s, lonely and/or celibate, you don’t want that in your mid 20s even.
But, what’s REALLY MINDBLOWING, is when you’re teens or young 20s, launch a successful career, start a successful business, or create an innovative, revolutionary, new product or service that quickly goes viral. Instead of having to spend years or decades BEFORE that MAYBE happens.
And if you don’t make it that big, you’re still enjoying other things. Some of you are living with your parents, even unemployed sometimes, and you’re in romantic/sexual relationships, you’re going to parties and have social lives (I’m not entirely sure if I’m TRULY as introverted as I feel, or if it’s just from years of being bullied and isolated and preferring the safety of my own space).
IDGAF what anyone says, “basic” things are big accomplishments, driving a car (ESPECIALLY in high populated/traffic areas, even more so with high rates of road rage and car wrecks).
Holding a job, any job. Especially in this (US) at-will employment culture, where you can be fired for literally no reason at all, or protected discrimination that you simply cannot prove in a court of law.
Unions were formed for reasons. Everyone having to compete to be the best of the best just for basic survival, worsened even more by inflation. And now a virus is bringing the 1% to their knees (at least a little bit, maybe?).
D’oh, I feel like I’m on a different plane of existence than the majority of people, my physical body is in your world, but my consciousness isn’t your level of reality/existence.
That’s why we don’t always understand each other, maybe that’s why I’m so often ignored or overtalked, I’m not really completely here, I’m in between planes of existence.
I do not get to willingly choose to travel planes, maybe it’d actually be epic if I did. But no, forces beyond my control have my fate of where I am in their hands, or whatever those higher dimensional bastards have.
It’s hell having your physical being and your conscious being separated between planes of existence, it makes for a very stressful and progressively more unbearable existence.
Maybe if I could absorb the full effect of psychedelics, I could fully ascend, even if just temporarily, and see what the hell is going on up here, and perhaps, a clearer picture of what is going on down here.
But the drugs I was put on, so very long ago, will most certainly block any psychedelic reaction, and probably just give me serotonin syndrome, further damaging me, my vessel (body, including the physical brain, separate from the conscious) and for all I know, probably damaging/traumatizing my conscious itself.
I’ll only be damaged more by your “doctors” who call themselves psychiatrists, I’ll never be able to experience a fully clean, natural state of existence while residing in your mortal realm, I will either be further corrupted/lost by more pharmaceuticals, or from the ridiculous withdrawal of said pharmaceuticals.
I do not want to just “accept my fate” like some of you seem to advocate for (perhaps you are actually the minority and I just hear views I’m afraid of louder because I already believe them myself in the first place).
Your “civilized society” is quite ridiculous, I must say. But, it would be nice, to experience the “full experience”, I guess just because at least part of me is human?
I would prefer to not be significantly further along the biological state of deterioration, before being able to experience such things, such as “making love” and the joy of a companion (of the female side, because I am a male who feels most attracted to the opposite sex, I’m sorry but we’re not all as open in our sexual orientations, no discrimination or anything).
Your world is quite confusing, your politics are ridiculous, your “survival of the fittest” attitude/mindset does NOT mesh well with the “civilization” or modern society that your (our?) species has constructed AT ALL, and the push of big Pharma and social media have only further disrupted our natural states of humanity.
And the 1% elites, only further deteriorate our (your?) species.

Maybe I’m overthinking it and spend too much time on the internet but I’m thinking of naming our baby Julietta Fawn, but that would leave her with initials JFC. And no one I’ve talked to in real life sees a problem with that, but on the internet it’s short for a vulgar slang and I don’t know if it will matter or not.

2022.01.27 23:03 boyboydude An American dude

This is how I see the story was being made. I'll just give you one of it.
There is a group of people that Author-san used in this story. Each time you see the same pattern, it's an interpretation exploration of the same person or a combination of them. This is the first group of variables. The one you see in the roster is actually the second group.
The most reinterpreted one is an American guy.
Due to his feat with fast moving ranged objects, it's valid to say that he has an eye power or time power. Thus, we start having eye powers since Round 2. Each time you see an eye power, Author-san is reinterpreting possible powers for this American if he is somehow in the roster.
As for the fast moving objects, well, Round 2 is a valid interpretation of the fight involving fast moving objects. So, we might get another interpretation of time fight again in the future. You could say Round 6 count, but that depends on how you interpret it.
Next, this American can fight, but only in a designated area. He can't just walk to a random street and start a fight.
Hence, Jack's London.
If a fighter interact or attack the crowd or get a special arena, that's a valid interpretation of fighting in a special place. Area power like Odin's power is also a valid interpretation of special arena power.
Now, this American actually wears a glove (sometimes). So, anything related to handwear is a valid interpretation of this.
Hence, Adam's knuckle duster, Jack's glove and Qin's claw.
But, along the way, I believe that Author-san is experimenting with hand or arm power. It's on the hand, but not handwear.
So, the first version of this experiment is Heracles. He just try to block things with his hand.
The second version is Raiden's arm power.
You could argue that Buddha's shield is also a valid interpretation of this. Instead of handwear or arm power, its a big shield.
Side note, Raiden's Volund is an attempt to re explore possible idea for Heracles's tattoo. His muscle is re exploring Zeus's muscle.
Back to the American.
This American also wears a hat. So, expect a head or headwear power in the future. I believe that Raiden's headbut is the first version of this.
Oh, let's go back to the arm. There is another exploration of arm power: Hajun's arm power and arm sword thing.
So, expect more experiments/explorations of eyes, heads, hands, time, and arena for future rounds.
I'm also expecting feet or shoes based powers in the future cause this American was somehow associated with footwear. Its weird, I know. But I'm not knocking this possibility down yet.

2022.01.27 23:03 Syser_ What to buy for nostalgia?

Sup guys, I always loved to play, watch and collect yugioh cards as a kid and I had a really vast collection of cards back then but a friend of mine just sold all of them when he needed money… enough of that, I wanted to get my hands on some cards again and I wanted to get some help from you guys. So it really doesn’t matter if it’s booster packs, Tin box , displates or whatever but I want it to contain oldschool cards, like the one in the main series owned by yugi Kaiba or even Joey, would also really like the popular 5ds Dragons or the Earthbound monsters! Don’t know if there’s anything that fit my demands but I appreciate any help, pls don’t be too harsh with me :D (I know the legendary decks collection 1 and 2 but still wanted to have some more recommendations maybe) Thanks in advance !!
