2022.01.17 04:32 Light_Shifty_Z Father threatened me with violence. Should I cut him off?
Me and my father in recent years have drifted apart. Mainly due to silly arguments. He makes a claim, I refute it with logic and reason, he makes things personal by insulting me (calling me stupid or a Twat, imbecile etc..) whenever he has no counter argument, rinse and repeat.
The past few years he's been very interested in the ancient alien stuff you see on the History channel. He rants on and on about alien theories and how pyramids were built by aliens. And that aliens created us in their image. He even goes as far as to imply that different ethnicities to Caucasians are another species, even though I've tried to explain to him that if we can mate and give birth to viable offspring that we're the same species, just with different phenotypes from being in different environments.
As an ex Archaeology student (albeit a bad one), I'm very interested in prehistory. Archaeology is far from an exact science and there is a lot of interpretation when it comes to things that predate history and the written record. But, it still follows the scientific method. This way of thinking has been ingrained into me.
Everything I do, follows a clear, logical and informed approach and every time he brings up some theory I can't help myself but to fall for the bait and take it apart piece by piece and show him where his argument is wrong. He says that the pyramids or Mayan temples could not be built with stone age tools, let alone blocks weighing tons being transported. He even claimed that modern cranes can't lift the same amount. I proved him wrong by doing a simple search. I even showed photos of a tribe carrying a massive stone, and the thunder stone which was moved in 1770 in Russia which weighed 1250 tons without modern cranes.
These are just the tip of the iceberg of examples of arguments we've had in the past. My father is not actually an idiot, he is uneducated but I would assume he has a higher than average IQ. He's been brainwashed by these programs that pretend to be spouting the gospel truth and that make claims without any evidence. They make idiotic claims that the Egyptians using copper axes couldn't cut through the stone blocks. Yet in reality, the tools were indeed copper but they used abrasive sand which contained hard minerals with the copper axes to cut the blocks. They don't even fact check. Their whole agenda is to sell the program and their books, it's just for entertainment purposes and not to be taken seriously yet my father doesn't see this.
Now to the recent incident. We had one of our normal arguments and he said things like:
''don't be an idiot''.
I usually let these things go but I decided to push it and ask him
''so what makes me an idiot? Just because I don't agree with your opinion?''
''Because you ARE one''
He's raising his voice higher and higher and I pushed further:
''Okay, I'm an idiot, but how exactly?''
''YOUR A TWAT, THAT'S WHY''
''Okay so I'm a twat? I don't want to be a twat, so if you could explain to me how I'm wrong I can learn from it and not be one'' I have kind of a sarcastic tone here as I knew he didn't have a counter argument.
He then proceeds to try and emotionally manipulate me by telling me that my siblings (who weren't there at the time) all confide in him and agree that I am a complete Twat. I tell him that I don't care and that people who don't understand me can think what they like, and that not understanding something usually means that an opinion is wrong.
After a while of me not backing down, he is shouting at me ''YOU BETTER SHUT UP. OR ELSE''
''or else what?''
He repeated maybe 3 or 4 times with a menacing stare ''OR ELSE'' implying he was going to be violent
I decided to call him out on his bluff and said ''or else what? You touch me and I'll defend myself''
''No you won't, you'll be knocked out''
''Oh so you threaten me with violence because I won't shut up? And I'm the one being a twat? We both know you won't do anything anyway and I'm not scared of you.''
My father is quite old and very obese weighing 22 stone. I admittedly mentioned his age and his health and that it was silly to be making threats to me he could get himself hurt. This understandably made things worse but it felt good in the moment sticking up for myself for once.
This went on for a while with him making empty threats and I'd had enough and told him to get on with it and he charged at me and pushed me to the wall with his fist raised. I grabbed him by the throat in reaction and he must have composed himself and sat back down whilst simultaneously calling me a coward. (For not fighting him even though he's twice my size and got me pinned to a wall). I told him his threats are empty and that I wouldn't fight someone twice my size in a small room, but I would put my shoes on and fight him out in the field if he'd really like and I'd be able to take him on. He calls me an idiot and that he'd knock me out (probably true). But I'm not backing down to a bully anymore, no matter the size.
But I don't care at this point, he can be as violent to me as he wants, he won't silence me. It's very abusive trying to control someone's behaviour with threats of violence.
He's given me a 2 week notice to move out.
I know I have a compulsion to correct someone on every little thing and I can get very argumentative. But it is never in an egotistical way. I don't get off on being right, and I don't try to be condescending. It just annoys me whenever people make claims about things they don't understand or that there is no evidence for.
I'd like to have a logical discussion with someone as an equal, the discussions start out with my good intention of learning the other person's opinion and mutually trying to come to a logical conclusion for both of us. But my father seems to have some aversion to admitting he's wrong and DEFINITELY doesn't like it when I'm right. It never goes anywhere and he makes it into an insulting match.
My father is clearly abusive and controlling. He even tries to emotionally manipulate my mother and doesn't like it when she's out of the house. Our bathroom toilet doesn't even flush and he's not fixing it out of spite to seemingly punish us. We have to flush by filling a bucket with water in the bathtub and splashing it down the toilet like some heathen. My mother has even offered to pay someone to fix it for us if he's not going to do it (it's been like it for maybe 10 years now). And he threatened to rip the toilet out if she does.
This is a long post and I thank anyone that has read through it all. I just want advice. I'm in my 20's and should really move out ASAP. I just want advice on whether to cut off my father altogether. It seems futile at this point trying to maintain a relationship with someone like him. I'm planning on not telling him where I live when I've found a place, but I don't know whether to cut him off completely.

2022.01.17 04:32 Kooky-Meaning-9584 Wanna to gather opions on my characters decision
Side note we have mainly good character party a Wood Elf cleric of the platinum dragon, a Halfling druid that's shy but overall friendly, and lastly a hobgoblin warlock who's just barely out of the teens and striving for adventure. My character is a Dragonborn rogue that was a potion/poison shop owner who also dabbled in adventuring
Alright recently in our campaign we had a possible bbeg named Ben. He gave a us a mission to hunt down and capture a woman we escorted to a new city to get away from him. We overall don't wanna do it but we feeled like if we don't it wouldn't end well for us and the fact that he will slowly bleed her dry to keep himself alive but she would resurrect. (homebrew dm stuff) He's willing to pay a good amount of money and some magic items. We begrudgingly agreed to hunt her down. He gives us a sending stone and leaves. We eventually find her again in a guild I sneak into said guild and find her and I thought of two ideas. One warn her and get her out of harms way. Two I go with the Ben's plan and capture her. I decided to warn her and ask if we could join her and run away. She agrees to it and her friends also agrees to help. I get back to the party who isn't down to help the Ben and tell them we're gonna double cross the bad guy. But I secretly planned to fool her and turn her into the ben and get all of us rewards and money. I sent him a message through the sending stone in private and he told me where to meet up. I tell the women where we're going and she agrees to come with us. We make our way to the location the Ben said we'd meet. He appears and the fight begins I persuade my party to not join in the fight since we would die from how strong he is. They begrudgingly agree with the cleric nearly dying from intervening during the fight. Afterwards the bad guy captures her and thanks us. The party feels like crap since they think we screwed up and got followed after we make it back into the town he pays and gives us all goodies except the cleric since she tried to kill him but he spares her. He decides he wouldn't mind us working for him again since how quickly and how well we handled the situation him hinting at the fact that I had played a hand in her capture.
Now what I wanted to ask was what do you think I should do from here. I have no intentions on betraying or murdering the party. We will have the chance to work for him again in the future. Also I told my DM of this plan after the session before the actual deception went down he was OK and interested in it.
Thank you for your time guys

2022.01.17 04:32 thrwayfounder Chase UR Travel booked my flights but didn’t pay for it
tldr: That booking confirmation email is a lie. Chase didn’t pay for my flights and I couldn’t board. Always book directly with the airline. Fuck Chase Travel.
I booked a return trip SFO>LAX>SIN on Singapore Airlines using UR points on Chase Travel. It’s 3 hour layover at LAX to for a vaccinated-only (VTL) flight into Singapore.
The SFO>LAX was a codeshare with Alaska Airlines. 2 weeks before departure, the last leg of my return flight was canceled with no alternative flights. I had called in to Chase but they said I can resolve this later with the airport agent, or reschedule it once I’m in Singapore. I think this was the red flag that I missed.
Travel day comes around. I was 3 hours early but when I tried to check-in, the agent said I had to call into Chase to get them to release the flight - no idea what that meant but I’m early and I can follow instructions. Chase agent was giving me the runaround, saying that my outbound and return SFO<>LAX flights were rescheduled and they had to call Singapore Airlines.
Eventually, the line “accidentally” disconnected and the Chase agent didn’t bother to call back.
I went back to the check-in agent and asked for advice, that’s when they told me that they had my booking + seat. He even had my boarding pass printed. It wasn’t rescheduled, it just wasn’t paid. He couldn’t give it to me because the ticket wasn’t paid for.
He offered to talk to Chase so I called in again, but Chase agent didn’t understood him and just placed us on hold until it accidentally disconnected again.
I offered to pay for the flight myself but the check-in agent said they couldn’t do that at all. He did everything he could.
At this point I’ve been on the phone for 2+ hours. I called in again and explained that Chase Travel has to pay for my flight. That was useless and this new Chase agent said they were not allowed to talk to any airline reps, and because it was 48 hours before my flight, I had to call the airline directly. The agent simply refused to help, so I hung up.
I gave Singapore Airlines a call and had to wait for 30-45mins to speak to a human. At this point, I’ve missed my flight. Eventually Singapore Airlines came on and their agent poked around and realized there was absolutely nothing they could do because the itinerary was locked to Chase. RIP.
So I called Chase again and had a amazing guy who understood my urgency. He tried his best but couldn’t reschedule me on any flight (even if I’m willing to pay the fare difference).
This is because Singapore Airlines couldn’t sell new VTL flights due to new Omicron regulations (but they could reschedule it). But Chase had to go through Armadeus (or some other OTA), which was an additional layer so they can’t do a reschedule at all - they cancel then rebook… which wouldn’t work.
He strongly recommended that I ask for a refund asap because my itinerary updated to a “no show” and they might use that as a reason to deny a refund.
At this point, I realized I was fucked. My LAX>SIN was canceled because no-show, so I can’t even take any random flight into LAX. I can’t rebook to SFO>SIN because Omicron regulations.
So I went home and bought a new VTL flight with my own money for later this week. Called Chase for a refund and it took them 1 whole hour to issue it while putting me on hold.
Fuck Chase Travel. Is there anyway I can even get them to pay for hotel changes, additional Uber rides, etc?

Hi. I am using ROS2 Foxy and Gazebo 11 in Ubuntu 20.04. I need to simulate a mobile robot that uses 4 mecanum wheels. I need it to perform strafing in the simulation world. I am looking for a Gazebo plugin that would help me do so.
I found a github repository (https://github.com/qaz9517532846/gazebo_mecanum_plugins/tree/ros2-foxy) that provides one, but I am looking for an open-source alternative to this.

My goal in doing so is to minimize distractions while I go through the PDF and take my notes. I feel like having in on a Kindlewould help a lot. Anyone have any experience doing it this way? Thank!
