2022.01.23 09:40 Accurate_Ad5642 New Koach..!
Just finished watching the 1st innings of 3rd ODI between India and South Africa and it is truly heartbreaking to see how low the intensity Koach has shown. BCCI has truly fucked the king and if things does not get better he will retire from the game soon.

2022.01.23 09:40 Angel466 [Bob the hobo] A Celestial Wars Spin-Off Part 0597
PART FIVE HUNDRED AND NINETY-SEVEN
[Previous Chapter] [The Beginning] [Patreon+2]
Boyd was seriously in love with the new gym. What Rachel had neglected to tell them, but they found on their own, was that the gym did indeed have an elevator for those who couldn’t make it up the stairs. On each of the floors, it was located between the men’s locker room and the exit doors, where people could make discreet entrances and exits without drawing attention to themselves.
He spotted it on the third floor, only after they were taken through what had to be the most familiar style of training ground he had seen outside of the military. Sandbags. Tyres. Massive coils of rope. Around three sides of the walls was an agility course wide enough for two people, consisting of a cargo net climb, a double beam, a low net to crawl under, a balance beam, a shale army crawl, a sloping wall with a rope, a vertical ladder and finally, a good, old fashioned assault wall.
The only thing missing was the sand, the mud, and a screaming drill sergeant.
And the part that bore repeating? It was a two-man course.
After Lucas introduced him to the free weights and the weight machines on the fourth floor, Boyd returned the favour here.
It hadn’t been quite the walkover he’d expected and watching the way Lucas pounced on the assault wall seconds behind him, Boyd was forced to remember his boyfriend’s love of parkour.
Lucas landed on the mat beside him mere seconds after Boyd’s feet contacted the firm gel and he doubled over at the waist, panting as he pressed his hands into his knees. “God, damn, Boyd. I did not see you as someone that light on your feet.”
Boyd was tempted to dig deep and pretend the course hadn’t fazed him in the least, but he couldn’t bring himself to do it. Resting his back against the assault wall, he sucked in sharp breaths through a broad grin. “I guess it is like riding a bike after all,” he puffed, looking over the familiar course. Parkour had only gotten Lucas so far. There were tricks to not getting tangled under the netted crawl space. Tricks he would share with Lucas … eventually. Like spreading one’s feet and using the side of the big toes as the contact point with the ground instead of the toe tips and allowing the knees to bend up alongside the body in a fluid motion that saved time.
For now, he would enjoy his win. Especially when Lucas straightened up and bopped him in the forearm with a loose fist. “Nicely done, man.”
“I concur,” Rachel agreed, from where she leaned on the corner post of the balustrade leading down to the second level. “That was an impressive time, Mr Masters. I take it you are former military?”
“Five generations of marines, ma’am. I may not have served, but I know my way around their obstacle course.”
“That would explain the ma’am.”
“Yes, ma’am.” If Boyd couldn’t help it before, in this setting it was guaranteed.
“So, would you like to see the rest of the facility, or have you already seen enough?”
Boyd looked at Lucas, who nodded before turning towards Rachel. “Show us where to sign our lives away,” he joked.
She straightened from the post. “Come with me. The office is down on the first floor.”
The second floor was a sectionalised version of the other three floors in miniature. “This is where the personal trainers take their one-on-one clients,” Rachel explained. “Compact training areas under full supervision.”
The ground floor was a series of open doorways that led to matted rooms for yoga, aerobics, and spin classes. All but two were in use.
Rachel led them past the locker rooms and elevator and into a comfortable meeting room with half a dozen bamboo coffee tables and groups of two and three matching chairs in a very casual setting. Portfolio folders with the GAMe image printed on the front were fanned across each of the tables, along with several logoed pens.
Rachel took them to a table with three chairs, gesturing for them to take a seat. “You don’t have to sign up straight away,” she said, pushing a folder towards each of them. “You’re absolutely more than welcome to take these home and look over them at your leisure.”
“I’m good,” Lucas said.
“Me too,” Boyd added, already clicking out the pen and flipping the pages to where he filled out his details and signed the twelve-month section.
“You have the choice of paying the entirety of the twelve months upfront, or the more popular payment plan is to prepay the month in advance. Should you choose the payment plan, your first payment will consist of the pro-rata amount that’ll cover the two weeks of this month and the full four weeks of June.”
“So six weeks for the first payment, and another due early July,” Lucas confirmed.
“Exactly. If you prefer that payment system, there’s an extra form to cover the automatic deductions from an account of your choice.”
“What happens if we pay it upfront, but then later need to cancel?”
Rachel again gestured to the portfolios. “It’s all explained in there, but the nuts and bolts of it are, the money you pay upfront is more of a holding plan for those who would rather get the yearly payment out of the way instead of worrying if a payment can be made every month. So if you leave and you meet the criteria for a refund, the money will be returned to you in a day or two.”
“I’ll take the yearly payment,” Boyd said, knowing he had the cash now, but without the reliable paycheck from the construction site, his income in the future as a budding artist wasn’t quite so guaranteed.
“Same,” Lucas said as they both rose to their feet. “Our wallets are upstairs in our locker though.”
“I can start putting the paperwork in to the system while you two head upstairs and grab your things. The showers have hot water, and on the wall that separates them from the lockers has a dispenser with free, single-use soap, shampoo, and conditioner. Most of our regulars bring their own toiletries, but the free ones are there for those who wish to use them.”
“Has anyone ever tried to take a fistful to use at home?” Lucas asked.
“Not usually. The dispensers make an audible clack as they turn, and while no one really pays any attention to two or three clacks at a time, a series of twenty or more back-to-back clacks is probably going to gain someone’s notice.”
“Here’s a thought,” Boyd said, shooting Lucas a frustrated look. “Try pretending for ten freaking seconds that you don’t carry a gold shield on you every other minute of the day. See how that feels.”
“It’s a legitimate question!” Lucas insisted. “When things get stolen, it jacks up the price of the membership. We should know in advance if there’s any likelihood of a price increase due to lost merchandise.”
“We’ve never had any theft of company property in the five years I’ve been working here, if that helps put your mind at ease, officer.”
“Detective,” Lucas corrected, like a total tool.
“Dude. Ease up,” Boyd insisted. “You’re not on the clock. Right now you’re just like everyone else in the place.”
Lucas pursed his lips and screwed up his nose like he’d just sucked a dozen lemons, and Boyd cocked an eyebrow at him, all but daring him to voice what was so obviously written all over his face. Lucas’ jaw worked in tight circles, probably going through an entire tirade that he wouldn’t let past his teeth.
Rachel’s light-hearted chuckle brought her both of their attentions. “So, how long have you two been together?” she asked, her gaze bouncing from one to the other and back again.
And just like that, Boyd’s stomach hit the floor and he had trouble breathing.
“Mr Masters?” Rachel sounded a thousand miles away.
“Hey, Boyd. It’s okay.” The familiar weight of Lucas’ hand wrapped around his elbow. “It’s fine.”
Boyd had never wondered what it was like to be tied to a rubber band that was drawn out almost to breaking point, only to be snapped back the very next instant. And now he’d never have to wonder. The speed at which everything righted itself at the sound of his boyfriend’s voice and the touch of his hand sent Boyd’s pulse racing. “I-I’m…”
“What just happened?” Rachel asked, only to follow it up with a drawn-out, “Oh,” a moment later.
Boyd had no idea what gestures Lucas had made, but he hadn’t said a word beyond ‘I’m.’
“I’m sorry, Mr Masters. I didn’t realise…”
“It’s okay,” Lucas slid in, taking over the conversation. “Yes, we’re a couple, but we’re not hanging out the rainbow flag and painting our names on the letterbox just yet, if you get my drift.” Lucas got to his feet, helping Boyd find his as well. “We’ll have a quick shower and be right back with our IDs and credit cards.”
“The front desk is just through that doorway,” Rachel said, pointing to the opening. “Many of our members use the lift to this floor after they’ve showered, and you’re welcome to do so as well if you wish.”
Boyd nodded at the same time as Lucas, already making their way towards the open doorway that led into the gym proper.
“Is anyone allowed to use the elevator when they first come in, to avoid running the stairs?” Lucas asked over his shoulder. “Just out of curiosity.”
It was a strange thing to ask until Boyd realised he was doing it to deflect attention from him.
Rachel paused to look back at him. “Not without a reason,” she says. “There’s always allowances. The elderly and the injured for example. But in your case, the only thing I can see stopping you is a pair of crutches and even then, you look the type to bunny-hop up every step before admitting defeat.”
Although Boyd still couldn’t formulate a sentence, inwardly he agreed with her assessment. They were both stubborn assholes like that.
“We’ll be back in a few,” Lucas said, pulling Boyd out of the meeting room towards the hallway that led to the stairs in the middle of the room. “You good?” he asked, once they were alone.
It took Boyd half a flight of stairs before he could answer. “I wasn’t expecting her to ask that,” he admitted.
Lucas fidgeted uncomfortably. “Dude, people who know what to look for are going to see the way I look at you, and I can’t help that. You may be able to turn it off when you walk out the front door, but I can’t. I won’t apologise for that.”
Boyd found himself staring at the wall over Lucas’ head. “And I’m not trying to make you ashamed of what you are. What we are.” He paused long enough to lick his lips. “I meant what I said last night. I’ll get there. I will…” His words tapered off as Lucas pinched his chin between his thumb and forefinger and tilted his head until their eyes met.
“You have no idea how much I want to kiss you right now. But I won’t. I know this is hard for you. It’s killing me too, in exactly the opposite direction. I want to shout our relationship from the rooftops.” With a cheeky grin, he added, “Did I tell you I’ve got Pepper tied up in knots trying to work out who ‘my type’ might be? I think she’s picturing some cutesy little twink in glitter and heels or something…”
The idea of something so absurd had Boyd rolling his eyes and shaking off the last of the fogginess. With a quick jerk, he pulled his chin out of Lucas’ grip.
“What? It’s true!” Lucas insisted.
“You’re an idiot. Now, let’s get our gear and have a shower. I just realised I’m going to have to go back to the apartment for an hour or so before we go shopping anyway.”
That stopped Lucas cold. “What? Why?”
“Because I still have to put that last coat of varnish on Doctor Kelly’s piece, and it needs time to dry before I give it to him tomorrow morning.” Levelling an accusing gaze at Lucas, he added, “I would’ve thought of it sooner, but some nameless nitwit got me up and out of the apartment at a stupid hour this morning.”
Lucas pouted for a second, then blew a sharp breath through his unwilling lips. “Fine. Home is on the way uptown, so I suppose it’s not that big of a detour.”

2022.01.23 09:40 AndreaSaba About Xperia 1/5 switch between different 4 cameras during video recording (and more)
| Hi guys, |
I was an Xperia user (Xperia Z3 and XZ2 Compact) and I wish to come back to Sony with a possible future brand new Xperia 5. I'd like to understand the situation about the "problem" in the title, cause it is a real important feature for me.
From what I know, with Android 11 Sony doesn't support the switch between camera once a video recording is started, and there is still no continuous zoom with the slider like in the other smartphones software. I'm looking from you some details: - has Sony implemented this feature with Android 12 the auto switch with intuitive zoom gestures? - if not or not only, using the latest G Cam mods as work around (tks API Cam2 support), is it possible to have this feature between all quad cameras?
Thank you for reading me and answering guys!

how do i already feel so hopeless at 19 years old. i’ve never been good at making friends, and so i really don’t have any. i feel alone all the time. other girls my age seem to be living their best lives, and i just feel like i’m wasting my life being sad and lonely. i know it’s my fault for being alone, but i try and try and try and yet i get nowhere. i cry almost everyday and i always just wish someone would just wrap their arms around me. and i don’t even like hugs. is this what i’m going to feel like for the rest of my life?

2022.01.23 09:40 ButterflyMilkshake Giant Bobbit worm boss
I am currently running a homebrew campaign where my pc's are stuck inside the bowels of a humongously giant magical whale. :)
So its an aquatic themed adventures, with many nasty sea-beasties, mermaids and pirates, and I wanted to create a fun optional boss for my encounter-hungry players to go up against.
So I was wondering what creature to monster-fy, and then I saw it on reddit: the Bobbit worm! It was perfectly creepy and epic, I would create a bobbit wyrm!
So I am not the best at creating monsters.. I usually reskin existing creatures because its hard to balance homebrew enemies. But I have no clue where to look for a bobbit-wyrm base monster.
I figured it should have an ability like "false appearance" and a grappling type attack, but there has to be more ways to make this beastie an encounter to remember!
I wondered if anyone here has some good, fun ideas for it? I have a 3-player party, currently at lvl 4. Thanks in advance, and sorry for any typos.
Tldr; I need help homebrewing a giant bobbit-worm monster.
