What would you do if you could have anything?
I'm not asking you this because I care about your answer or because there is any way on Earth to replicate what I did. But I want you to really think about if you could swear that your answer would have caused no less destruction than mine. And I guess I'm asking for your forgiveness.
The wishes came from a half used matchbook in an abandoned occult store, if you can believe that. I don't need you to believe me really, I'm too tired to replace the truth with a more believable lie anyway. It said "strike the match and speak your wish aloud" in ornate green text on the outside. In a fit of whimsy I'd have passed off as irony if anyone had seen, I struck a match and joked.
"I wish I had a cigarette."
It was in my other had as soon as I finished the word and I dropped the match on the floor out of fright. My second wish was for ten thousand dollars. I cursed myself as soon as I'd said it, I could have asked for anything and I didn't even pick a truly ridiculous amount of money. One match left. I took a drag from the second-match-lit cigarette and tried to clear my mind. Then in a moment of calm it came to me.
"I wish Molly was better."
If you'd known her, I think you'd have done the same. She was smart, funny if you could deal with the dark sense of humour and she was kinda a trainwreck but in all the best ways. She was also dying.
Yeah, I was a bit in love with her. That's really kinda irrelevant though - if it had been any other friend I'd have done the same. Maybe I was a bit in love with all of them, assholes though we all were. I guess it doesn't matter so much considering they're all dead now.
I came home from my somewhat illegal urban exploring to find the cash stowed behind the broken wardrobe panel with other things I'd rather keep hidden. Molly broke the good news about her mysterious recovery to us two weeks later and for a short stint of our lives, life was good.
Molly had never been a good student but a week after her health returned, her grades went from C's and D's up to a solid B or higher across the board. She beat half the track team when we raced in gym class. More annoyingly, she became more moral. Technically she was probably becoming more of a good person but none of us had been good people back then. Maybe we'd have grown out of it, maybe we were just a product of our shithole of a town. But she became moral and in doing so, she became insufferable.
I was barely 17 when the misfortunes started happening. They weren't all deaths at first and you'd have had to have really known Molly to even know that they were linked to her. The jock who tried to grope her broke his leg, the stoner she hated got sick, the teacher who refused to be her academic reference died. Mr. Tanner had believed that Molly's sudden spike in intelligence was most likely due to cheating and he paid for that suspicion with his life.
Nobody questioned Molly, why would they? Even if they had - she'd had an airtight alibi to each event.
I was three hours away when it happened. My whole town, scrubbed harshly off the map in less time than it takes to watch a movie. The instant I heard about it on the radio I made a sharp U-turn and headed back home.
If I'd taken either of the main routes into the town I wouldn't have found my way in. The official explanation was that this was a natural disaster but I later found out the place was crawling with officials. They knew.
I drove through the destruction, trying to find the rubble that had once been my parents' house when I saw Molly, wandering through it all without a care in the world. Worse, she looked pleased.
"This was you." I said, unsure of how I knew that fact but certain it was true.
"Yes. This place was broken. It needed to go." Molly said.
"My friends... my family... god Molly, even your family. Are you going to get me next, is that it?"
She shook her head softly.
"I'm not sure I can. Simon told me what you did, the wish you made about me. If it was your wish that fixed me then I have no way of knowing if removing you from the equation will end me. Tell me though, what did you wish exactly?"
"I just wished you'd get better." I said through clenched teeth.
"Well, I am that. Better than I was. Better than you."
With a small gesture she made rocks near her float and then dance in the air in a complicated waltz.
"Better than human."

2021.12.05 23:29 Pixiewings6253 Muggle Express to get to Hogwarts Express
I started writing fanfiction with my OC being based on my mother. She's a muggle-born who has zero support from her non-magical parents. I thought it would be fun to put her in our ancestral hometown of Denbigh, Wales. Unfortunately, it takes about 5 hours and 80 pounds to travel from there to London. This means that even if my OC had enough money yearly to spend on the trip, (which she actually has to take twice, once to go to Diagon Alley for school supplies, and once again to get to Platform 9 3/4) She would need to leave at 5:30 on September 1st to get to King's Cross Station. However, the first bus that goes towards the train station she needs to go to doesn't leave until 7:23, so she'd always miss the Hogwarts Express. On top of that, the trip is basically having an 11-year-old ride the UK equivalent of Am Track by themselves. I've read that you can't use floo powder to get there, so what alternative can we find for her?

2021.12.05 23:29 sydsquidmoocow Water-based polyurethane on wood floors
I am refinishing my floors - DIY. I'm using Polywhey EZ-PRO satin water based polyurethane. Plan is currently to apply finish with a T-bar. Second coat will go on about 4 hours after the first coat (assuming the floor isn't tacky anymore). But what about the third coat? Is it best to wait 24 hrs to sand and then apply, or should I apply the third coat within 10 hours of the second so it chemically bonds? Any tips? Some people recommended cleaning floor with mineral spirits in addition to just a tack cloth + vacuum before beginning - agree/disagree?

2021.12.05 23:29 Rasen_God Subliminal Guide (VERY LONG & INFORMATIVE)
I'm making this post because I always seem to encounter misinformed people and non-believers talk about subliminals being placebo and complete nonsense. I'm not sure where to start from here but I'll just say whatever comes to my mind.
• What are Subliminals? •
Subliminals are tracks made up of suggestions that go below the audible threshold. They are outside of your ability to perceive consciously, but your subconscious mind does receive and react to the stimuli.
Subliminal recordings are a way to sneak in suggestions that bypass your conscious mind, where thoughts are blocked and filtered. This way you deliver good favorable suggestions in an unnoticeable and repetitive way.
Your subconscious mind begains to accept these suggestions as true after repeated listening of the subliminaI.
•What does a Subliminal do? •
What a subliminaI does is change your belief system to the one you desire. If you suffer from Depression, it can come from low self-esteem and insecurites which are a manifestion of the negative beliefs you have about yourself: "I'm not worthy" "I hate myself" "I'm ugly" "I'm such an awful person" "I'm so weird" yadayada.
The reason why this is important is because our beliefs alter our preception which influences our behavior. If you were to change those beliefs to positive, then your perception & behavior will change to support these beliefs. You will have a very hard time going through life if your subconscious beliefs do not match with your conscious thoughts and desires.
Examples: The belief "I'm not good enough" will change the perception you have of yourself and influence you into being self conscious in public. This can result in destructive behavior when it comes to relationships, because you don't feel you're good enough or worthy of being with this person.
Another example: The belief "I hate myself" will change the perception you have of yourself and influence you to become sleep deprived and miserable. This can result in staying up late, skipping showers, eating junk food, codependency, seeking validation, self sabotaging your goals and overalls poor health as a result of this behavior.
Another example (may get backlash): The belief "I'm ugly" will change the perception you have of yourself and influence you into doing things that change the way you look. This can result in the desire for plastic surgery and/or makeup, using subliminals to change the way a body feature looks.
• How does a SubliminaI work? •
A subliminaI is audio that consists of suggestions that bypass the conscious mind's awareness and get picked up by the subconscious mind.
Most of the time, the suggestions are masked with a layer of music or noise. The reason why we do this is because the suggestions aren't for our conscious mind, it's for the subconscious mind. Your subconscious mind cannot tell the difference between Reality and Imagination.
While you cannot hear the suggestions, the sound waves coming from them travel down the ear canal and vibrate your eardrums. Your subconscious mind is able to decipher these vibrations because these are the same vibrations that make up audible sounds. It is also defined as the reception of the sound pressure waves and their perception or observation and interpretation by the brain.
• Benefits of using Subliminals •
Subliminal messaging bypasses the conscious mind and lets you install enabling beliefs and disable limiting ones without interference from your conscious mind. The new programming in your subconscious mind will affect your everyday thoughts and actions.
The suggestions are targeted to implant powerful beliefs into your subconscious mind which will change your thoughts, preception and behavior.
Our life is a manifestion of our subconscious beliefs. When we change the way we look at things, the things we look at change to support this belief.
• What is the Subconscious mind? •
The subconscious is the part of our minds that makes decisions without our needing to actively think about them. It’s different from the conscious mind, which encompasses the thoughts we know we are having at any given moment. It’s also different from the unconscious mind, which holds past events and experiences that we don’t remember at all.
The subconscious mind goes beyond learning new skills. It’s involved in information processing and affects everything we think, say and do. It stores our beliefs and values, determines our memories and monitors the information all around us, deciding what to send to the conscious mind and what to store for later. It affects every moment of our lives – and most of us don’t even know it.
• How long does it take to reprogram the Subconscious Mind? •
On average it takes about three to four weeks, but it could take longer. The answer will depend on how deeply ingrained the behavior is that you want to change, as well as your own limiting beliefs.
If you are new to subliminals you must set time aside every day to listen to your subliminal audio and do not skip a day for a minimum of 30 days.
Everyone wants instant results these days, however, the effort you put into reprogramming your subconscious mind is well worth the effort. You can recreate yourself into an entirely new person if you desire. You can attract and manifest anything you desire into your life.
• What are Beliefs? •
A belief is something that you believe is true. You might believe something based on a fact, an opinion or an assumption. When you believe something you might not have immediate personal knowledge but you are satisfied that something is the way it is.
Beliefs are basically the guiding principles in life that provide direction and meaning in life. Beliefs are the preset, organized filters to our perceptions of the world (external and internal). They're like ‘Internal commands’ to the brain as to how to represent what is happening, when we congruently believe something to be true. In the absence of beliefs or inability to tap into them, people feel disempowered.
Findings of carefully designed research indicate that our interpretation of what we are seeing (experiencing) can literally alter our physiology. In fact, all symptoms of medicine work through our beliefs. By subtly transforming the unknown (disease/disorder) into something known, named, tamed and explained, alarm reactions in the brain can be calmed down. All therapies have a hidden, symbolic value and influence on the psyche, besides the direct specific effect they may have on the body.
• Where did our Beliefs come from? •
Beliefs originate from what we hear - and keep on hearing from others, ever since we were children. The sources of beliefs include environment, events, knowledge, past experiences, etc. One of the biggest misconceptions people often harbor is that belief is a static, intellectual concept. Nothing can be farther from truth as beliefs are a choice. We have the power to choose our beliefs. Our beliefs become our reality.
In short terms: a Belief is just a thought you've kept thinking over and over.
• Great! Now how do I use a SubliminaI? •
The purpose of a subliminal is to reprogram your subconscious beliefs. The subconscious mind will not accept anything it is told the first time because it is designed to resist new changes in order to protect your current beliefs. If you want to get past the resistance then you have to listen to the subliminal as much as you can everyday and night for a minimum of 30 days.
You have to listen consistently everyday to bypass the resistance and eventually, your subconscious mind will accept the affirmations and make them your reality.
• I've listened to one subliminaI over 3 months and have not seen any results •
When this occurs, it can be the subliminal itself that isn't working. We have a tendency to blame the listener and almost never the creator of the subliminaI. Majority of the community support subliminaI makers who provide poorly made subliminals that are nothing but distortion.
Some creators make the flaw mistake of lowering the decibel of the suggestions until it doesn't reach the tymbrane membrane of the ear (eardrums). Your eardrums need to vibrate off the sound wave coming from the suggestions it. Without that, what is there for your subconscious mind to decipher If it's not receiving any vibrations?
Another mistake I see is with these creators is the method of layering the suggestions (many call this Bundling).Too much layering is bad and can (for the most part) create distortion.
Distortion is caused by a signal which is "too strong". If an audio signal level is too high for a particular component to cope with, then parts of the signal will be lost.
In short terms: loss data/damaged audio.
Another poor mistake is the method of speeding up the suggestions at a far greater level than our conscious mind's processing speed. This method most likely came from someone who found out how quickly the subconscious mind can process, and applied it to the audio. Just like the method I've mentioned earlier, this also creates distortion, rendering it useless.
Also I would like to mention that even if distortion wasn't a thing, your subconscious mind would still not able to decipher the suggestions due to our stimuli processing rapid sound. The filtering begins at the very beginning of the auditory stimuli processing. Our sound environment is extremely dense, which is why the brain has to adapt and implement filtering mechanisms that allow it to hold its attention on the most important elements and save energy. When two identical sounds are repeated quickly, one of these filters called "Auditory Sensory Gating", drastically reduces the attention that the brain directs to the second sound it hears.
I can never recommend YouTube subliminals but here are some of the best submakers that I recommend:
• Do I need to use a booster? •
A booster is opinional but in my honest opinion, they don't really do anything nor are they necessary.
The reason why I say this is because the subconscious mind accepts anything it picks up consistently. I see no purpose in a booster because the same way a booster works is the same way the subliminaI for what you want would work.
You do not need a booster in order to get results. In fact, it may hinder the process because a booster is still a subliminaI tnat consists of suggestions that need to be repeated enough times, for the subconscious mind to accept.
• I got negative results from a subliminaI, do listen to a flush? •
If you have gotten negative results from a subliminaI, then you need to listen to a subliminaI that contains affirmations that address these results.
For example, if you became Depressed & Suicidal from a negative subliminaI, then listen to a subliminaI focused on Self Love & Happiness.
A flush will not get rid of negative results as it's not addressing these new negative beliefs. You absolutely need to listen to a subliminaI that contains the exact opposite of the negative results (beliefs).
• Can I use a blockage remover? •
As mentioned above, a blockage is nothing more than having negative beliefs in relation to the area you're trying to change.
For example, if you have a money "block" then you need to listen to a subliminaI that contains positive suggestions on money: "Money is easy to make" "I love how easy it is to make money" "Making money is so easy"
If you have a relationship "block" then you need to listen to a subliminaI that contains positive suggestions on relationship: "Relationships are so easy to find" "I enjoy being in a relationship" "It's easy for me to have a healthy relationship"
• Can I block unwanted affirmations?
Absolutely not. I've had to repeat myself to numerous misinformed people about this. Your subconscious mind is Subjective. It does not think or reason independently. It merely obeys off the conscious mind.
Due to the subliminaI suggestions, they bypass your conscious awareness and get picked up by the subconscious mind, which overtime will accept the suggestions as true.
You cannot block something that isn't consciously present.
•Do I need to believe in subliminals? •
The purpose of a subliminaI is to reprogram your subconscious beliefs. Your conscious mind is a reflection of your subconscious beliefs. In order to get results from a subliminaI, you would need to play it consistently for as much as you can.
The affirmations are sent to your subconscious mind which overtime with repetition, get accepted by your subconscious mind and become beliefs.
• Do I need to affirm,visualize, live in the end etc •
For the people who affirm: The conscious mind is a reflection of the subconscious mind's beliefs. Your subconscious mind is much more powerful than your conscious mind, which is why we use Subliminals.
For example, when you are unhappy and make the conscious effort of thinking: “I am so happy” then your conscious mind will say “No, you are not.” The reason for this is because your subconscious mind knows that's not true. But if you send the same message repetitively to the subconscious mind, without that the conscious mind's awareness, you will change the belief of being unhappy. As soon as a certain belief has been changed, the conscious mind will act upon the new programming (belief).
For the people who mention visualization: The subconscious mind creates images based off the suggestions. As a result, you are already Visualizing without your awareness.
For the people who mention living in the end/mental diet: The purpose of those techniques are to feed your subconscious mind the thoughts it needs to make this desire true. A subliminaI does that automatically, please take the pressure off yourself. Mental diet can be very unhealthy and create dissociation.
• How do I know I have a working Subliminal? •
This is tricky because some subliminaI creators change the frequency of the suggestions to a level above human hearing. In most cases, the frequency is set at 17500hz which bypasses your conscious awaress while still allowing the sound waves to vibrate your ear drums.
For the most part, you should be able to atleast hear the suggestions in your subliminaI as the music/noise is playing. The reason why it's crucial is because your subconscious mind relies on vibrations. If you do not hear the suggestions, then it's most likely not traveling down your ear canal, rendering the audio useless.
DISCLAIMER: You should not be able to understand the suggestions unless they're panned. If you are able to understand the suggestions, lower your devices volume until you only hear mumbling.
That's all I have left to say. Share this guide to many of your friends and help the misinformed people with achieving results. I truly hope you enjoyed reading this as much as I did typing all of this down. If you have any questions that haven't been answered in this post then please feel free to comment down below.

2021.12.05 23:29 Squoo I installed a wifi card in my new build, it's being detected but it can't find any wifi networks.
So I installed an okn wifi 6 ax200 m.2 card and it can't find any wifi networks. It does show up under network adapters in device manager. I tried using an old USB adapter I had and it works just fine so I am wondering if the card is just bad.
I've updated the drivers for the card but no luck there. The motherboard bios is the second newest ones and I wasn't sure if I should update that just yet in case it caused other issues. I've tried turning off the firewall and all that but still nothing.
It's an Intel card and I have a Ryzen CPU but I read that's not a problem, I also read it would connect to non wifi 6 routers, I have an Asus ac1300 so I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it.
Couldn't think of anything else to try so hopefully someone has delt with this similar issue, thank you for the help!

Hey reddit! I have a MTG question that has been baffling us the whole night and the question is. Does uphill battle cancel out mutation cards? I would assume that if a card is mutated it is not really being played as its own separate card but uphill battle states that if an opponent plays a card it comes in tapped. So does that mean that if the card is mutated on top instead of the bottom it comes in tapped?
