Vegas Region

2021.10.26 23:46 Available-Camera-219 Vegas Region

Hello! I was placed in Las Vegas in Elementary and I was wondering if anyone could share their experience with the region. Did you enjoy it? Were there any major issues? How do you afford it because the salary versus the price of rent from my research does not seem easy? Any information you have would be greatly appreciated!

2021.10.26 23:46 MaterialIndividual You don't have Aphantasia

This is a rant. I'm not trying to convince you. You don't have it.
To those who don't know what Aphantasia is, I'm not going to explain it, but rather I'm going to explain how you think you have it.
It goes like this:
Your memory isn't great, everyone tells you how often you forget things. You know it, it's just who you are. You used to read fiction as a kid, but now you don't. If you do read, it's typically non-fiction, or you skim through books pretty quickly. You don't get that drawn in. Maybe you've been playing video games for a while, or maybe just a serial TV watcher. Doesn't matter. That's just what you've done.
One day, you read a comment on reddit that tells you to "Picture something in your head" - odd, that's not coming to mind. You can't picture anything. You see a comment that follows, "if you can't picture anything, you might have aphantasia, check out /Aphantisa"
You'd never really thought about it before, but something clicks today. You can't picture.. anything? You haven't had dreams in a long long time. Okay, you think, lets start simple: "Beach" - Nothing. "Elephant?" - Nothing. "My house?!" - Nothing. "My mothers face!" - Nothing. Oh God. Something is wrong with me. You read the comments on /Aphantasia. Here's a whole group of people who are describing your problems. They're struggling in a world that relies on visualization - it's you! You've been struggling! Now here's the answer, you've known something wasn't right all along, and you've figured it out. It's comforting to know you're not alone, you chat to some people and you all agree how tough it is being disabled like this. How reassuring.
I'm not sure why you feel this way - to need to join this group, and give yourself this label. Maybe you're a little lonely, maybe you're looking for meaning or purpose, and this just fills that hole that you're looking for.
I'm not sure why you can't visualise, but I'll give it a guess: You don't need to professionally, and you don't do it privately. You just don't visualise in any part of your routine. Why would you?There's no need. You've got video games, or tv shows that you can see - why imagine what they look like, they're right there. You don't need to picture things at your job, you're not creating something fresh - you're working with people, or real tangible data. You're not in advertising.
This is a systemic issue.
You're not special because you're a little lost, a little lonely, and a terrible visualiser. You're... the average adult! Congratulations, I hate to break the news, but this isn't what makes you special.
Have you tried to improve your visualisation skills? Ofcourse not, you just found out, why would you have? It's impossible to. 'I've got Aphantasia - it can't be fixed'. It's like asking a man with no legs to practice putting on shoes: I can't do it!
Well, how about you give it a go - person who was exactly like me three years ago. I'll tell you how I did it: I practiced.
My belief is that its not a fixed ability - like your height. It's like a muscle, or any other skill.
Just because you can't squat 100kg today, and you can see people at the gym doing it, doesn't mean you'll never be able to. It's actually just a matter of time of dedicated practice.
Here's what I prescribe:

  1. Listen to evocative, descriptive, audio books or podcasts and try to visualise as often as possible. I recommend Critical Role Season 1 because that's what I used: Hundreds of hours of content that I could listen to in traffic, professional voice actors who put themselves into a role and describe what they are doing to you, and a 'host' who is also a professional, and describing what the 'players' are seeing to them. Every sentence is an opportunity to practice. It took me MONTHS, like 3 MONTHS, to be able to even start to form anything. I looked up fan art, I googled images to start from so I had a 'base' that I could recall instead of generating a 'new' image from scratch. For example, if I said a green skinned orc, unless you know what an orc is, what can you even hope to see? If you google "ORC" or "Green Skinned Orc" you'll have a reference. Next time you read, Green Skinned Orc, you want to try and recall that image you saw - not visualise something new. That's the easy step in. Don't try racking that 100kg for your first reps.
  2. Actively look at where you are walking, whats around you, and try to recall it. You're on the train to work? Perfect! Look around, what's going on? Whats the layout of the carriage? Okay, really really look. Now close your eyes, try to 'see it' again. Maybe pick out a person, someone different than normal, study them, now close your eyes and attempt to 'see them' again. Do this whenever possible, and safe to do so. Don't do it while driving for the love of your low insurance premiums.
  3. Okay, you've got some skills now. You're getting somewhere, the ball is rolling and you're able to see some simple conceptual images, maybe statically. Try to push yourself: Read evocative FICTION books. Maybe something youve seen on TV, like Harry Potter. Reading Harry Potter, if you've seen the movie, you're going to want to try and recall Emma Watson as Hermione, Rupert Grint as Ron, and so on, in the places they are described. If you're having trouble, look up images from the movie, and supplant them in where possible. You won't be able to 'watch the movie' in your mind as you read - if you can, well done, you're squatting 150kgs, go out into the world and prosper with your abilities. For the rest of us: Keep Practicing. Difficulty is normal.
  4. Try to write short descriptions yourself. I wrote from /writingprompts, and /worldbuilding posts. This is for you. Write a story, or short description, that 'paints' a scene. You're really stretching now. You've got some spark to start from, now it's up to you to try and create something from that. Here's an example: Write a description from the prompt: 'A Cozy Coffee Shop'. What does it have in it, what time of day, what season? You're going to read this now and say, "This is impossible" and today it probably will be. It took me a long long time - MONTHS - to get this.
5.I'll leave you with the last thing I did - when I was 'done.' When I finished that marathon I was training for, and didn't care to train again: Create your own building. In your own scene. I pictured a lighthouse with magical floors that had doors to magical places. It was like the tardis. I could picture the approach, a field of waist high grass with a sand coloured stone path. The door is large, wooden, with a old style latch. The ground floor is a small forest, dark, with a campfire and wingback chair - my favourite spot to read. The top floor was a square, minimally bare room, with windows on all sides. Out one window, I could see the ocean, with a cove at the base of the hill the lighthouse stands on. On that wall there's a sunken bench - like those sunken firepits you can build - so you can sit, and just watch the ocean, but you're not obstructing the view from the rest of the floor.
I sat, at work, creating that lighthouse piece by arduous piece at work. When it started to come together, I was paralized for 2 hours until I had it mostly done. I was euphoric.I was so happy I could cry. It was like I could see again. It was my marathon, and I did it. Now, 2 years past, I can picture it again, without difficulty.
You don't have aphantasia. Don't rob yourself of the joy I felt, and feel now again, muted, reliving it. What practical purposes has it served? I remember much better, I enjoy books a lot more, and I get more out of them. I can produce more creative work, and I can more effectively plan ahead. It's well worth the effort, and you can practice every day, for free, without having to shower or visit the gym.

2021.10.26 23:46 leoeliie sub wd day 12 - weed doesnt work anymore

Hey guys. I finally slept after 40+ hrs with the help of a weed oil pen. I didnt wanna resort to that because my tolerance goes thru the roof in just a few days and i get dependent on them. they also make me a bit of a zombie if im puffin on em all day.
Anyways, the first week of wd, I smoked weed flower and didnt get high but i was using the pen the first week n that was still working. In the beginning of the second week, I stopped using the pens. flower still didnt work. I got a weed oil pen after not having one for about 4/5 days (to try n sleep when nothing else was working - it did work) and now it is not allowing me a buzz at all either.
My sub dr was really surprised and confused when i told him weed isnt working. I tried flower and the pen today and got no effects from either. Has anyone else experienced this during sub wd? is that normal? will my ability to use weed ever come back? itd be nice to get stoned but alas, my body/brain isnt allowing it currently. is it cuz i have no dopamine to release or something?

Hi I was using the tensor flow object detection webcam but the webcam was identifying things like a blank white space to be a square and was not recognizing the duck right in front of it and most of the confidence values I saw while using the screen share on the phone were at .5 - . 6 does anyone have any suggestions to why that may be (I have the magnify, aspect ratio and all tfod parameters at their default value)
