2021.09.23 04:04 Shartriloquist Small Obervations Big implication Part 1: Kvothe’s green absorbing eyes, sodium, bone-tar, and rainbows
TL;DR— In a chapter titled “Leaves” which consists in part of the bone-tar demonstration, Kvothe's eyes seem to swallow up an entire wavelength of light. There are a ton of plant, tree, fruit, and weed allusions in these books. I’m not saying Kvothe is photosynthesizing (leaves take light convert it into ‘chemical energy’ though that seems a crude way of describing it) but I think if for some reason he is absorbing a wavelength or two it’s worth considering “why?” Also, Chandrian Rainbows.
Kvothe’s fetishized hands and perennially carrot-top mop occupy center stage, but I think his unique eyes may be equally as important. As an aside, if the book were written with“foot” / “feet” replacing “hand” / “hands” I have a feeling it would have fallen into an altogether different fantasy category). Though they take a back seat to his hand soap-commercial-worthy-hands and Head and Shoulders-sponsorable hair if the adoration of his peers is any indicator, Kvothe’s eyes are getting short shrift despite being kind of a big deal even if he only uses them in their narrow-beam setting. Tangentially, I must mention that Schiem conveniently rolls up looking for his pegs as D-sizzle is about to tell Kvothe about the curious mood rings lurking in his orbital sockets. I plan to do a piece on Schiem at some point because it’s fun and I think there’s a lot more going on there than meets the…. Eye… but I digress.
I need to preface this by pointing out that Pat has a background in chemistry and the concept I will reference isn’t obscure or something you’d likely mistake if you were using it adjectively. I could be missing some obvious explanation I’m not considering, but if not, this seems very intentional and that’s why I think it’s interesting:
During the bone-tar / Regim Ignaul Neratum demonstration Kvothe describes the color of the flames dancing along the burning fog after Kilvin tosses the vial in the stone well in a very peculiar way.
“It’s caustic. Spill it on your arm and it’ll eat through to the bone in about ten seconds.” -Manet in NoTW during the bone-tar demonstration (See my disclaimer below for logical arguments pertaining to the merits of this quote)Kvothe describes it as a bright “sodium-red” suggesting that this is the color he recognizes as sodium burning. Why is this interesting? Because it’s called out specifically and because sodium doesn’t burn red, it burns yellow and NaOH (sodium hydroxide) burns a yellowish orange. Yellow is made up of red and green. Green could theoretically absorb the green from of an emission source emitting both red and green, leaving Kvothe to only perceive the red. (See below). This doesn’t work in our eyes for a bunch of reasons, but I think this clue could be hinting it works that way in Kvothe for some reason.
Jagged flames danced across the surface of the fog, colored a bright sodium-red. -Kvothe’s description of the bone-tar flames
“It’s caustic. Spill it on your arm and it’ll eat through to the bone in about ten seconds.” -Manet in NoTW during the bone-tar demonstration (See my disclaimer below for logical arguments pertaining to the merits of this quote)Now let’s switch gears to talk about eyes (o)(o) and light in a highly oversimplified sense that pains me, but I want you to actually keep reading: Light as we understand it is made of various wavelengths of energy. Rods and cones in our eyes depending on lighting conditions convert the light reaching them into corresponding electrical impulses which our brain then decodes into the colors we perceive (cringe, I’m trying to keep this brief). However, if a wavelength is absorbed beforehand it won’t be translated. I won’t rule out that Kvothe could be missing the necessary receptors, but the coincidence between his green eye color and this particular wavelength with a known substance (sodium emission spectrum) it seems he is somehow absorbing all of that wavelength of light under certain conditions. Colors are weirdly subjective without a control palette. I’m not claiming he doesn’t see yellow, I’m claiming in this instance, for whatever reason, he doesn’t and he should. What is he turning it into? I don’t know, but we have somebody who seems very capable of scorching a master rhetorician up to the knee (acknowledging Hemme’s likely exaggeration), holding out with a god-awful link (duel with Fenton), and recover more quickly than most…
“‘What do you think,’ he asked the boatman, ‘about Teccam’s theory of energy as an elemental substance rather than a material property?’ - Elxa Dal’s “The Ignorant Edema” I think there are more than a few interesting pieces to Dal’s story, but this seems appropriate here.Black absorbs all wavelengths, yet he’s so cold… kind of like an inefficient heat pump?
“I saw the man with black eyes, Cinder, kneeling in front of me.”
Inside the Waystone, the light fell across Chronicler’s face and touched a beginning there, a blank page waiting the first words of a story. The light flowed across the bar, scattered a thousand tiny rainbow beginnings from the colored bottles, and climbed the wall toward the sword, as if searching for one final beginning. But when the light touched the sword there were no beginnings to be seen. —NoTW in the frameWhenever Kvothe pompously scoffs at something it typically means it’s at least a little significant. There is something to this, and I suspect it has to do with water or a prism. In the passage from the cod liver flask we have Amber, glass, and rainbows. Amber has some demon associations, glass is endlessly used as a symbol and I won’t get into the refractive part because this is getting too long. The Chandrian “rainbow” sign is a fun rabbit hole I may dive down later, but again I don’t want this getting any longer.
“When I was a child I chased a rainbow for an hour one evening. Got lost in the woods. NoTW
Thunder. The darkening of the moon. One story even mentioned rainbows. Who would write that? Why make a child terrified of rainbows?
I held up the amber flask. The sunlight broke itself into rainbows on the glass. WMF Cod liver oil for the Maer.

2021.09.23 04:04 taipan__ Experience with Amazon parking lease? Have a client who was approached
Has anyone ever been approached by a broker working for Amazon to lease just parking space for their vans and trailers? We’re talking about 14 acres very close to a major highway intersection in the greater New York metro area. Guess it’s overflow from one of their last mile distro facilities. He threw out a crazy number for a single net lease based on acreage but not much else yet. Property is currently being used as an industrial yard for building material. He did mention lease terms between 6 months and 5 years, which scared my owner occupant client off a bit. Curious if anyone’s dealt with the company before as they’ve asked us to draw up a map of useable acreage before they draw up an LOI.

Just looking for come laidback people near my age to game with. Lately I play mostly Val and Apex. My highest rank is bronze 3 in Val and plat 4 in Apex to give you kind of an idea where I'm at. I don't care about your KD or rank though. Just looking for people that I can have fun playing and vibe well with. I'm on usually after 6pm PST for quite a while. I have a good enough connection I can play on east coast servers no problem if you happen to be on one. When New World comes out I'll definitely be playing so if you're looking for someone to play with when it comes out, I'd be down for that too. Please feel free to DM me if you'd like to get together and play!

2021.09.23 04:04 Turbo_Charged-95 Lol, man . These lag spikes are hellacious.
I started with 2m upload and 10 download. I upgraded to 40 down and 20 up. NO DIFFERENCE IN LAG SPIKES. Same lag spikes that last over 1 second , nearly 2. Sometimes even 3 . Someone get the fire extinguisher. The servers are on fire and melting. I noticed the active members are only 140 at the moment. I remember when it was over 500 .

2021.09.23 04:04 thenumbersarereal Parallax effect for any block?
I’ve easily spent an hour hardcore searching for a plug-in or other way to change the scroll speed on any block.
I’m using Advanced Wordpress Backgrounds to do parallax on images in a contained box.
How could I add the effect to any block, or groups of blocks? Like text and images? Then I could set them to different speeds and give the illusion of depth. Please help!

2021.09.23 04:04 7heads10crowns It was finally my turn
It's been a while since I was active on this sub but I got a reason to return to post this.
I woke up to the bs almost exactly 4 years ago. Things went as they usually do after that. Regular fights and a strained relationship with my family. I became inactive and successfully faded after attending my last meeting mid 2018. Things were tumultuous for a while after that. All of my friends stopped talking to me. Only one person, a childhood friend, stayed in contact with me.
While the sudden realisation that there wouldn't be a second chance at life kept me away from suicide, my depression kept chugging along. I mostly just spent the time I wasn't at work gaming until I managed to reconnect with a highschool friend and his crew. While not a deeper connection, it was better than being alone.
I honestly don't remember most of 2018 and 19. Those years were more of a blurry footnote while I did my best to regain my footing. I moved out of my parents place april '20 and it felt like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders.
The constant reminders of the faith I'd lost disappeared. The sneaking around seized. I finally had room to explore myself and the world around me. The physical distance to my parents improved our relationship tenfold to a stable relation so long as religion wasn't brought up.
But I was still really fucking down in the dumps. I drank heavily, harmed and didn't take care of myself in general. The energy I had was spent to act like I was fine while at work or when I visited my parents for weekend dinners. I really fucking wasn't. Talking to a psychologist didn't help either.
This was up until I met H. We got introduced through the one JW who still played the occational game with me who asked if I wanted to join them for a few rounds of Halo. You know when you can pinpoint a single decision that put you where you are now. Saying yes that time was one of them. We clicked instantly.
They became the closest friend I'd had since I left the society. We leaned on eachother for support when we needed to, which was often. H helped me quit self harm, helped me start to care again.
With their help and the year of introspection that was 2020 I managed to figure out that I was trans, and with that context I was able to work on the main cause of my depression. Therapy started to make a difference and I felt like a happy(ish) person for the first time in almost a decade.
But I realised that I wouldn't be able be me without telling my parents about it. So that's what I did, a month ago. Got told to dissociate. Fine, fuck it, it's been a long time coming with all the shit I've been up to. It took two weeks for the elders to announce it after I turned in my letter. That was this tuesday.
My dad told both grandmas and pas for me. I still haven't decided if that's a good thing but it doesn't matter. I'll still have a logistical contact with my parents because I've got my car in their name for insurance, but other than that, I'm never gonna see them over dinner again, never gonna hang out. Probably not gonna meet the cats again. Won't see my grandparents unless they're dying probably. My mom asked me what my new name was so I really think she wants to be supportive but can't.
I'm kinda pissed that nobody sent a goodbye, not my grandparents, no old friends, and the last standing JW guy has ghosted me. The most random things will send me into a crying fit.
I feel both happy that I'm freed but shit at the high price I had to pay. And trying to explain to my friends that I love my parents and they love me but they can't see me feels like explaining color to a blind person. But they're there for me.
It's 4 am and I have yet to sleep tonight so excuse any errors or jumps in the story. My brain is a bit mush rn.
Tl;dr: finally dissociated and I feel great and shit

2021.09.23 04:04 redstapler4 1993 High School Literature Assignment - Depression Era?
Back in 1993, I was assigned to read a book that I’d love to read again. One of the main characters was a young man who lived in the United States during the depression. He slept on the floor and worked in a factory. This was a well known, classic literature book that I think all students in the Illinois school district I was in were required to read. I wish I could remember more!
