I loved the show, but I just can't understand why Kaelego keeps getting painted as the villain of the series.
Imagine you are a supernatural entity stranded in a pocket dimension physically linked to a planet, Earth, inhabited by fleshy bipeds. You didn't decide to crash part of that comet onto Earth. You never volunteered to be trapped for centuries all alone in some cramped alternate reality, nor is it your fault that you appear to Earth's inhabitants as a towering ghoulish monstrosity.
Of course you try to escape by crawling out of TV screens or beg for help by interrupting Patricia's TV shows, you are basically trapped in solitary confinement for extraterrestrial beings. Some of the humans try to talk to you by humming, which is nice, so you pay them back by drawing some pretty designs on their walls with some delicious fungus. Most people who eat the fungus seem to really like it.
The friendly humans occasionally come visit you, which is cool. You try and make them feel welcome by letting them see their departed loved ones and making them immortal beings who never age. You aren't really clear why they sometimes kill each other right before visiting--maybe it is a weird human custom, you don't know--but it isn't you out there slitting throats.
TL;DR: Kaelego is just trying to escape space ghost jail and is being nice by spreading a pretty fungus and giving his guests things he thinks they would like.

2022.01.18 12:46 upbstock lower
The major indices are struggling to begin the shortened week and it isn't simply because of weakness in the mega-cap stocks and growth stocks. Today's weakness is wide ranging and has been catalyzed by worries about rising interest rates and disappointing Q4 earnings results from Dow component Goldman Sachs (GS 351.23, -29.71, -7.8%).
Goldman's profit growth was constrained by higher than expected expenses, which was due largely to higher than expected compensation expenses. That understanding is feeding concerns that other companies will share a similar narrative; hence, today's early selling interest is cutting across both value and growth stocks and is affecting nearly every sector.
The lone winner on the sector front is the energy sector (+1.1%), which continues its outperformance as oil prices ($85.30, +1.48, +1.8%) continue to rise. Exxon Mobil (XOM 73.47, +1.60, +2.2%), which shared a goal today to have net zero carbon emissions by 2050, is a standout in the space.
The move in oil prices is fueling concerns that inflation will be higher and more persistent than Fed officials previously expected. The inflation-sensitive 10-yr note yield has jumped eight basis points to 1.85%; meanwhile, the 2-yr note yield, which is more sensitive to changes in the fed funds rate, has jumped seven basis points to 1.03% -- its highest level since February 2020.
A lot of attention has been paid to the market pricing in the prospect of four rate hikes in 2022, on top of quantitative tightening measures, to help rein in inflation. There is even some chatter that the Fed might feel compelled to raise the fed funds rate by 50 basis points at its March FOMC meeting to regain some inflation-fighting credibility.
In a separate development, Microsoft (MSFT 308.41, -1.79, -0.6%) announced a $68.7 billion, or $95.00 per share, cash acquisition of entertainment software company Activision Blizzard (ATVI 83.75, +18.36, +28.1%). That news, however, has failed to alter the broader market's interest rate angst.
The Russell 2000 is down 1.3%; the S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite are down 1.4%; and the Dow Jones Industrial Average is down 1.5%.

Looking to drop off my Pixel Lab covid test today, preferably in downtown Salem. Getting conflicting info from Fedex themselves (one search says to go to Peabody, another says Walgreen’s is fine.) Ideally, I would be dropping it off at the Walgreen’s on New Derby as our car isn’t working properly and at least I could walk there.

What happened to the all rounders? At this point in time, in the whole league I can think of only one true all rounder - Aslam Inamdar. Also many all rounders have just started focussing on one aspect. Eg - Deepak Hooda ( Raiding), Nabibaksh (Raiding), Sandeep Narwal (Defending).
And today Sandeep proved that most of these all rounders can still do the other thing. So why?

2022.01.18 12:46 Solrac19 Open ended question
Does anyone really care if someone came up to you and said hey I’m female or male but I’ll be your mute, and be the gender you would prefer me to be simply to form a bond on VRCHAT? Regardless of the bond, would you still take that offer ? Many people go to VRCHAT just to make friends but I know some go for other reasons ie lewd, or looking for a relationship. Well, if someone was up to offer you that but it would only be strictly in VRCHAT would you take that offer ?? Why or why not and what’s your reasoning behind it

I am in 10th Grade and for the past few months I have been looking into becoming a Funeral Director or an Embalmer. I think next year we will have a job shadowing opportunity. I was wondering if it’s possible to do this?? I live in South Carolina. I have searched this up many times and have gotten no results.

2022.01.18 12:46 eabutuner Power mirror help! About to go mad
Owner of a 02 civic sedan here (1.6 ES european version). Bought it used and it came with custom power mirrors, which has 4 cables for each mirror (2 for the horizontal motor and 2 for vertical) yet the car's switch has 3 cables and here's the diagram for the original electrical setup.
Anyways, I figured I would succeed if I combined 2 cables of the custom mirror, thus obtaining 3 wires in total that'd match the original mirror switch's out-going wires.
I was trying out different combinations and it was looking promising (lol) when all of a sudden the upper side of the switch stopped working. Other directions still worked and I thought ah I semi-f*cked up the switch, bravo me! and replaced the switch.
Today I installed the new switch but the problem still persists. Turns out I unnecessarily replaced it.
Any help is appreciated!

How many sessions did it take for you to start to see noticeable progress? I'm at 3 right now (1 and 2 were 8 weeks apart, 2 and 3 were 10 weeks apart) and the shading is fading but the linework is being very stubborn. I am hoping to see some of the line work break up after the next session.
I know every tattoo is different, but I was just curious about others' experiences!

2022.01.18 12:46 DoctorHeadass On managing interview/admissions anxiety
It goes without saying that interview season is a high stress, high anxiety time for most of us. There is no shortage posts on this sub to that end. We can all too easily feel that our success and value in life comes down to these few weeks. But that narrowing of our view is generally not helpful. I have a recommendation or two, I hope they can help others as they have helped me.
Before your interview starts, put your phone away for just a few minutes (turn on "do not disturb" if you must), and just notice how you're feeling. It can be helpful to focus on your breathing here (if you have a meditation practice you'll already be familiar with this), the breath has a way of exposing your tendency to lean into the next moment. If you're like me, you'll probably notice every atom in your brain screaming for you to find something to do; some distraction, or more frantic preparation, or aimless scrolling, just something to pass the time. Take a few breaths just to notice this urge, and also notice that by letting those breaths pass without engaging in avoidance behavior, you are better able to pass the moments without needing to occupy yourself.
This obviously isn't how to spend every waking moment, you still have to do things to prepare for interviews and such. But taking a few moments away from your distractions (almost certainly your phone) can be helpful for diffusing all that stress and anxiety when it becomes almost unbearably acute.
Anyway, this is a helpful little exercise for me and I hope it can take the edge off the stress for you as well. Best of luck with all of your applications and interviews everyone!
