2021.12.03 12:40 gypsyhussle Blank Screen of Death w/ PS5 & new LG TV
I'm having a ton of issues with my new TV and PS5. I've owned this PS5 for about 6 months now and have never had an issue on my Samsung 4K TV. I recently switched to a LG NanoCell 75 series 43". Since plugging it into that, I get just a blank screen. I looked up some ways that I might be able to fix it and I came across the Safe Mode. So I hard reset my PS5, did the change resolution in Safe Mode, changed HDMI ports, tried enabling stuff on my TV through the settings and nothing has worked. I am completely defeated and hope someone on Reddit might be able to help. Please let me know!! Happy Friday :)

2021.12.03 12:40 rabarbar1666 Platonic/romantic relationship in media
This is something I’ve been thinking about quite a bit recently. Being both present in a lot of lgbt spaces online and also on the ace spectrum, I am often confused and conflicted on this topic. On one hand I want to ship fictional characters of the same sex while on the other hand my ace part of my brain is telling me why can’t we have a good representation of same sex friendship?
This is obviously the problem of how romance centered and heteronormative the media is. (To be fair f/m friendships are also underrepresented, but that’s another topic) There is little representation of same sex relationships so the lgbt folk have to often grasp at straws to find some. Sometimes characters are blatantly queer coded and their relationships romance coded so that’s not that big of a stretch. The problem arises in media where sexual tension doesn’t exist (like children media or older stories) I’ve just watched Rowan Ellis’s video on queer representation in Disney and she mention Sully and Mike from Monsters Inc. Of course this is her interpretation and she makes some good points, but I’m not convinced. For me this is platonic friendship, but I don’t blame the people that interpret it different way, especially when they have no actual canonic alternatives in Disney.
Then there is the argument that there is not a lot of good same sex friendship in the media especially m/m. There are of course examples of buddy friendship, but not the true emotional bonds between men. There was a post on LOTR subreddit recently about pairing Sam and Frodo or Legolas and Gimli. As much as I like shipping both of those pairs I couldn’t help but agree with things people were saying in that post. We really don’t see a lot of m/m friendships that are so close and so emotional. Not to mention queer platonic relationships and aro/ace representation in general.
Basically both types of relationships are underrepresented in media and no wonder people try to fight for those few that are left. Obviously there are some people that don’t want to hear about same sex shipping because of homophobia, but that’s not what I mean. I feel like on both sides there are people that genuinely interpret those relationships that way, and I wanted to know why. Why is it that for someone something is clearly romantic while someone sees only platonic friendship. And I think that it’s because romantic and platonic are so similar that are almost indistinguishable. There are so many people on this subreddit asking what is the difference between romantic and platonic attraction, I also haven’t figured that out for myself. And us acespec people are already aware of split attraction system and what not. Most allows don’t know about that, they see attraction as one thing. And so when we have a piece of media that removes sex from the equation, it becomes very unclear what kind of attraction this is.
Sorry for essay, it’s just something that’s been on my mind for quite some time. I wonder what your thoughts are on this.

2021.12.03 12:40 Careful_Supermarket9 When masturbating to photos of a celebrity, do you check the date of each photo?
For example, if you found a celebrity (18+) attractive and googled photos of them to get off to, would you check the date of each photo to ensure that they were 18 at the time it was taken? Or is it enough to know that they are currently legally an adult?
I'm obviously not talking explicit photos here, or photos in which they look young.
I'm worried that by not checking I've done something awful, really need some advice

Dogshit wrapped in Catshit
The Fed, China, Evergrande and a Mountain of Dog-shit Wrapped in Cat-shit.
Did the Fed indirectly bail out Chinese commercial paper and bonds issued by Chinese developers, and is still sitting on most of the $750 billion investment?
Well, currently the Fed continues to add Treasury securities and Mortgage-Backed Securities to its holdings despite raging inflation, and only plans to end these purchases by mid-2022. It has already largely unwound its crisis specials, from repos and liquidity swaps to an alphabet soup of programs of corporate bonds and commercial paper holdings. In total, assets on the Fed's weekly balance sheet have increased by $4.3 trillion since March 11, 2020, when all this money-printing madness began. Special purpose vehicles (SPVS) are legal entities that the Fed created during the crisis to buy assets that it was otherwise prohibited from buying.
Equity financing was provided by the Treasury, which would absorb the first loss on these assets. The Fed makes loans to the SPVS and shows those and the equity financing from the Treasury in these SPV accounts.
The SPV here was called "Corporate Credit Facilities" (or CCF). BlackRock and a bunch of other bond funds were involved and everyone began front-running the Fed, and a huge rally in junk bonds, and bond ETFS ensued as the Fed itself bought $750 billion of this stuff.
Last week, the Fed announced that it was winding down the CCF, but it appears that the Fed still holds most of the $750 billion, here’s the inherent issue. Chinese companies like Evergrande are registered in the Caymans, and junk bond ETFS from BlackRock and others have been bought by the Fed.
I believe the Fed has been buying Chinese bonds indirectly on a large scale to keep the markets from crashing. Their 2020 Annual Report shows that they’ve invested $539 billion in bonds from Cayman Island issuers, and Blackrock hold a mountain of debt from Evergrande and Chinese real estate developers in their ETFS.
Gaël Fichan, a portfolio manager at SYZ Group wondered last week why total assets in the iShares USD Asia High Yield Bond ETF have risen 385% in two months to $1.8 billion since Sept. 21. So, this begs the question: Did the FED indirectly support Chinese real estate developers by stabilizing bond markets through the ETF purchase program before it stopped?
Is there now little support for these junk bonds just shortly before bankruptcy will be officially declared and the Fed seems to still sitting indirectly on the majority of these investments?
The Fed stated in a report to congress: «...the Board continues to expect that the CCFS will not result in losses to the Federal Reserve...» Wait, isn’t this the same board that vehemently advocated the fact that inflation was transitory and only as of the 30th of November retracted that statement to now say the “inflation is here to stay”?
Basically, from what I understand, everyone agreed to this pyramid scheme. Blackrock sells mortgage-backed securities (Chinese real estate) to the Fed through QE. They do this on margin, so not to even out their own capital reserves, because the treasury is acting as the middle man between BR and the Fed. The CCP recognized that the US was using Blackrock to pump and benefit from the already on fire real estate market, and proceeded to decisively unwind the debt fueled real estate market, recognizing that the Fed is who would take the hit in the event of a default, which as we know is only a matter of days away.
Chinese Real Estate companies need money to develop real estate, thus they sell bonds. Blackrock knows that the FED will buy "safe debt" as part of their quantitative easing program. This means that Blackrock has incentive to buy bonds from a lot of Real Estate companies, including China's, to repackage it in Exchange traded funds (ETFs) which ostensibly raises the ETFs' credit rating due to diversification. When the ETFs are considered good enough by at least one of the three major rating agencies (S&P, Moody's or Fitch), the FED can and will buy it. This effectively means that due to QE programs there was an economical incentive for Blackrock to prop up the Chinese Real Estate bond market.
US Treasury securities are bought by the FED because they are considered as the safest type of treasury (safe debt from prior). Treasury securities are made when a country's budget has a deficit and also work to increase the amount of money in the economy.
Now we see BlackRock, iShares and others benefiting from the Fed's special programs to buy Asian junk bond ETFS are abusing the investments for margin collateral to finance other global hedge activities. The Fed has created an alphabet soup of programs as Special Purpose Vehicles to buy ETFS from Blackrock, iShares and others that hold Asian junk bonds. This isn’t even the tip of the iceberg, the fact that these fund companies are abusing the holdings of Chinese commercial bonds for margin collateral to finance other global hedge activities is utterly insane.
For example, Ashmore Group. From July to September, as headlines battered Evergrande's stock and bond prices, London-listed Ashmore bought almost another US$100 million of bonds issued by the developer and its subsidiaries. Ashmore brought its holdings of the debt to more than US$500 million at the end of September, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. This means that Ashmore bought US$500 million Asian bonds on a nominal value basis for market value of US$100 million and is using now the US$500 million Asian nominal value bonds as fully accepted collateral to show capital for other hedges in the market like AMC Theatres/GameStop. Once the Chinese real estate industry completely collapses, the Fed's ETFS won't be worth anything and the ETF provider will not be able to use it as collateral. That means once Evergrande goes bankrupt in a few days, the world economy will have a significantly bigger problem.
The lack of collateral will force the fund's manager to sell other assets to fill the huge gap of suddenly worthless collateral. This will be a big step and milestone towards the "Great Reset" and the proverbial MOASS.

Any wrinkle brain apes have an opinion on the theory??

2021.12.03 12:40 shytoucan Was it wrong to ask band members to help pay for rehearsal studio?
I'm playing a gig with 3 other people, we're not a band, we're practicing just for this gig, and we're not playing anyone's original music. We're gonna be playing some jazz standards at an event.
I was responsible for finding musicians and creating a setlist so I guess it sort of makes me a band leader, but I don't consider myself fully a band leader because I'm not asking the musicians to help me with my original singer-songwriter project, if that makes sense. I got offered a gig, I needed other musicians and I offered them to play with me, the venue is paying us all equally.
I booked a rehearsal space and asked everyone if they could send me some money - I made it clear they didn't have to completely split it with me, but some contribution would be appreciated.
Was it wrong to ask them of that? Am I considered a band leader here and should it have been my responsibility to cover the cost? What's usually the etiquette for paying for rehearsal space?
