2021.10.20 00:05 samili First time cooking kabocha, turned out squishy?

Looking though similar recipes, I cut them into slices and put them in a sauce. I steamed half and microwaved and baked the other half. Both turned out like firm but squishy, if that makes sense. similar to a cucumber I guess. It still held it's shape but the texture wasn't anything like what I've had at japanese and korean restaurants, or how my mom has made them.
I cooked them for about 30 minutes, tested every 10 mins to see if they were done. They didn't seem to be getting any more tender, even after an hr. Was it a bad pumpkin? Not high enough heat?

2021.10.20 00:05 Noah_EDCT This game was amazing.

I just finished my first play though of this game (corpo). After 4 years of anticipation for this game, with the highest of excitement (e3 2018) and some times where I was quite disappointed (game launch) I have finally finished this game and I have to say it was one of the best games I have ever played. The ending was so well done and being honest, I did tear up a little at the end; not because I am emotional or sensitive (even though I did cry at the RDR2 ending, but we all did) but because this game has meant so much to me. Anticipation for this game helped me through a lot of hard times and playing cyberpunk red (which I only discovered and became a lore nerd for through cyberpunk 2077) allowed me to create new friends and enjoy new experiences in my new home. Everything about this game I loved, the writing, characters, mission design, music, lore, mechanics, and yes, sometimes the bugs (which I encountered very few of; and for reference I played this on a PC with a 3070ti and 3700X so I was playing at ultra graphics with no lag at 60fps) and made this game easily one of my favorites ever, and definitely my personal 2021 GOTY. Love the game or hate it, i just wanted to share my story of this game and tell this subreddit that I fucking loved Cyberpunk 2077.
Thank you CDPR, Mike Pondsmith, R, Talsorian Games, and to all of the choombas I met on the way.

In the following categories, how would you rank them on a scale of 0-10?
Genuinely care about you
I think mine would be the following
Trustworthiness: 8
Dependable: 7
Fun: 9
Genuinely care about you: 6
I think I’m unsure if my friends actually care about me. We have a lot of fun together. Idk if it’s me just being insecure and paranoid but I get the feeling that I annoy them or that they dislike me. I know I can be socially awkward and anxious. But I never try to be rude or am a jerk to anyone. I’d like to think that I’m a good friend since I genuinely care about them. I make sure to ask them questions about how they are doing and stuff like that but I get the feeling I come off as a try-hard. Maybe I’m just trying too hard to get them to like me? What are your experiences with your close friends?

Just got on a call with a financial representative about getting LTC rider with my life insurance. They assured us this policy would qualify to opt us out of the incoming LTC tax, however, upon seeing the paperwork, it states that it's an accelerated care benefit with LTC coverage.

2021.10.20 00:05 bkgolf Witcher 3

I wanted to share my experience with Witcher 3.
I’ve always been a sucker for a good adventure game. So, a while back my brother recommended I get into the Witcher, praising 3 the most. I was hesitant being I haven’t played the other games in the series and was afraid I’d be lost if I just jumped into the third game of the series. For whatever reason I haven’t had the ambition to just start at 1. He reassured me that it wouldn’t matter too much, but I brushed it off. For a long time…
One day, years later, I was browsing for games on my switch and saw that Witcher 3 complete edition was on sale. So I picked it up, along with a couple other games. I didn’t even start it right away. I probably waited a few more months before I had a quiet day and decide to give it a try.
I dove in, with only my knowledge of some memes I’ve seen here and there and some general knowledge about the concept. No clue what happened in prior games as far as character development. I was just hoping that wouldn’t kill my experience.
Needless to say, I was a little lost about that was happening and why certain characters were acting certain ways. But overall, I could kind of piece together what was happening. I played through the whole tutorial area and enjoyed it but something was missing.
It felt like a slow start. I was pretty lost on some of the mechanics. For instance, I didn’t realize the Witcher potions you make were easily refillable. So there were big aspects of the game I was skipping over. Once I started getting the hang of it, it was a blast (just like my alcoholic-refillable bombs!?). One minute your walking around slicing and dicing monsters and the next you peek around the wrong tree and your skewered like a kabob. I love that the slower you take it and the more lore you read the easier the game is and the more I understand the characters back stories. The lore only gave me part of the story though.
I was just starting to get into stride in Velen when life got busy and I ended up putting it down for a while. Distracted, I kind of lost touch and didn’t have a desire to pick it up again.
Until just recently when I was scrolling through Netflix and saw the Witcher series and an ad that a new season was coming in December. So, I turned it on and started watching. It was a different feeling to see characters that I had interacted with in the game and then see and learn about them in the show. I had many unanswered questions about character plots and the show was filling in those voids. Cannon or not. I have no idea how closely the show follows the game. It doesn’t matter I’m oblivious either way. So, I’d say it has enhanced my experience in a unique way. It’s kind of hard to describe, maybe like starting the last book in a series without reading the others before it, putting it down right away and watching the movies to catch up before you read the climax. It’s almost certainly a warped understanding of the plot, but exciting in it’s own twisted way. I choose to enjoy it rather than sweat over nuances. Time will tell if it affects my upcoming in-game experiences.
When I had the show on, it even caught my wife’s attention, so she got into it with me. We’d watch one every night or so. Ended up getting through them fairly quick, there are only 8 episodes, and now it has me all wound up to play the game again.
I fired it back up and started flying through quests, points of interest, lore, the whole gambit. My wife watches off and on and likes seeing the characters from the show. I finally got through the lady of woods quest paired with the bloody baron quest and got to experience how the quests overlap each other and how your decisions affect the outcomes. I was so lost going through the baron quest line because I had no idea where his wife was. I laughed when it came to light. Can someone explain if its possible to find that answer without first doing the lady of the woods quest? It felt like I had hit a dead-end before that.
Anyways, its a wild game to say the least. I can’t wait to keep going and play new playthroughs for different outcomes.
I don’t see myself putting this one down again for quite some time. Also looking forward to season 2 of the series.

2021.10.20 00:05 nerdy_the_artist ATS: All These Witnesses story 4: Sentimental (Trigger warning! Implied child harm, language)

“Ma’am, apologies but we need to fix these things up.” Adrien said. I shook my head. Until we could get people from the robotics company in here to fix them right, I didn’t want anyone touching them. Call me sentimental, but I’m not letting anything get near Chica.
“No, that’s not your task.” I quietly hissed. The odd, and on occasion deadly, behaviors of the animatronics was a closely guarded secret by Fazbear Entertainment. The last thing I needed was word of this to spread straight from my own words. “These things are dangerous. We need to wait for the people from E&A robotics to come down and fix these things themselves. You said yourself that you can’t find what’s wrong.”
“If this is about the rumors-“
“Shut it!” I had to restrain myself from slapping him then and there. He would NOT bring that up. “You will not be touching it, and that is final.” I quickly stormed out of the back stage and into the safe room. I only barely held back the tears that threatened to spill. I needed to compose myself. I took a moment, taking deep breaths. Out of the corner of my eye, I thought I saw something, a sort of yellowish shape. I turned to face it but it was gone. Just my mind playing tricks on me, or my barely held tears distorting the world around me.
I took a moment to lock myself in before walking over to my desk. I unlocked the middle drawer with my key and reach inside for one of only three items in it. I looked down at the old, withering paper, peering into the young and hopeful eyes of the girl stood next to Freddy. So much innocence back then. Back then we didn’t have all of the horror stories swept under the carpet, I didn’t spend all day mourning, and we never came in to work mentally preparing ourselves for the sight of a corpse.
But I knew, at least, that the last one would not be true here, not if I had any say about it. I knew that the sole problematic character here would was not as bad as what we had in other places. It was an unspoken truth that the first openly reported employee murder was at the hands of one of our more unhinged robots. After Tony Anton, however, things began getting swept under the rug. The information on these problems was kept on a need to know basis. However, now that the possibility of death was present, hired security personnel were given a rundown on what was understood about their tendencies. If they then chose, they could even quit right then and there, with nothing following them home but a non-disclosure agreement.
Our “haunt”, as the employees have taken to calling them, is Chica. While Mr. Anton’s death startled many of us into concerns that she may be a danger to our own resident night guard, a Ms. Kelly McCree, the months since then have not shown much of a deviation from her current trends of… well, snooping. She just roams around the building, poking about. Kelly has described the behavior as more inquisitive than anything else. I never liked that term. It makes her feel like a test subject.
A knocking sounded on the safe room door. I spun around. I could hear some one say something on the other side, however the soundproof walls of the safe room made it too difficult to tell what they were saying. Quickly, I dropped the photo back in the drawer, locked it, and power walked back to the door. On the other side was Kelly. I gulped down my anxieties as she awkwardly told me the time. 10:02. I nodded, walking out and through the front door. Maybe I should have said more, but I’m not sure I wouldn’t have broken down again.
The nightshift at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza is weird. I’ve only been working this job for two months, but I’ve had no shortage of strangeness. It all hinges around one of the cartoon mascot things they have, a yellow chicken named Chica. Freddy Fazbear’s has a trio of robotic mascots on a stage towards the back of the building. If you’ve ever been to something like Chuck E Cheese’s, you know the deal. They sing, dance, and get the kids all riled up.
During the day time, or so I’m told, there is little to no weird things happening, aside from the occasional stutter in the routine of the mascot shows. Matter of fact, during the night time, there is no other odd occurrences not related to Chica. There’s no doors moving on their own, floating objects, or anything like that. All that happens is Chica gets up and walks around at night. It’s not like Chica is even the main character of the show, she’s off to the left and doesn’t even have a musical instrument like the bunny, or a microphone like Freddy.
I still remember nearly calling the police the first time Chica moved on her own. It’s absolutely horrifying the first time seeing the unmanned robotic character up and walk off the stage when you aren’t looking. However, the manager did have something that seems to work in slowing her down. The company was able to cook up some music box in the prize corner that I can actually wind up from my computer in the office. I just wind it up, let it play, and Chica just sort of… stops. I think she’s listening to it, but with what? They don’t have ears… I think. For all I know it makes some sort of weird signal that tells the insides of it to stop. I don’t know.
Lately, however, there have been some events that have genuinely made me fear for my life. About two weeks back, another employee at my position in another location, went missing. I heard that he was actually found murdered in his office by one of the robots, but that was just from a guy who knew a guy who knew a guy. I’m inclined to believe him with what circulated around the company around that time, however. I was personally handed a letter by my manager that instructed me to basically not go near the mascots by any means necessary, be it by locking the door, just running, or even using my taser against them. That last one I don’t understand. Maybe the taser is supposed to fry the wiring or something so that they can’t move, but then Chica shouldn’t be moving anyway.
Other than the newfound tenseness of knowing I might be in danger and the reinforced doors, nothing has changed. Chica goes about her usual routine of wandering aimlessly and staring out the windows, and I sit in front of a computer screen for six hours. So all is well that ends well, I suppose. Still though, I’m keeping my eye on Chica a little closer these days.
At last, the technicians from the robotics company were here. Well, technician, singular. A young, dark haired man introduced himself as Harry Brookes. I brought him over to the defunct animatronic in the safe room before locking the door behind us. Harry looked puzzled for a moment before remembering what might be brought up.
As he went to work, I turned back towards the desk, looking back at the drawer. I was busy on important business that I needed to be present for, but I just couldn’t help it. I couldn’t help but imagine a world where these strange and scary things didn’t happen, where children didn’t go missing where they should be safe, where they didn’t come back, still tormented even in death.
“Ma’am?” Harry asked, snapping me out of my thoughts. I spun to face him.
“Uhm… yes, sorry. What is it?” I responded.
“Have you had any problems with the animatronics during the day?” he asked, presumably again.
“No. Well, maybe a few voice line stutters but nothing much. Why?” I asked. Harry pointed at several exposed wires in Chica’s forearm.
“These wires are severely frayed. Simply put, I couldn’t use these wires to turn on a light bulb at this point. Have any of the other characters had any such problems?” I took a look for myself, sure enough, the exposed wires around her arm had frayed in several places, showing exposed copper that spilt out of the edges.
“No. How is this animatronic even functioning if that’s the case?” I asked. Harry shrugged.
“Like I said, this should be impossible. If somebody just told me about this, I would have told them to buzz off. By all accounts, Chica’s arm should be static when on stage but it’s moving. And not just the arm, these fraying wires and rapidly corroded frameworks are all over her. My only possible guess is that it’s environmental, but I can’t think of what would do this to metal so quickly without killing people.” Killing… I looked back the frayed wires. They were at Chica’s wrists.
“Where else, exactly, is there the damage to her wires?” I asked, perhaps with a bit more urgency than I intended. Harry looked slightly confused.
“Her wrist joints, behind her eyes, and around her neck. There’s also a lot metal corrosion around her neck.” he responded. That all felt like it implied something. “Why?”
“No reason.” I said too quickly, again. I sighed, trying to push those intrusive thoughts of what might have happened to her out of my head. “You should go now.”
“No, I’ve been told to stay her all day until I-“
“Please go… I need some time to think.” I interrupted. Harry raised a hand to speak, then thought better of it and walked away.
Another night in Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, another night of pondering what the hell is going on. Except that this night, Chica did something completely new. She talked. I don’t mean she did some recycled song at an incorrect time or something, she talked.
I was just sitting there, watching Chica on the cameras. I watched her slowly approach the door at about four. I closed the door, and for a moment I thought that would be it, that she would simply pass by, see the door was closed, and leave. I turned back towards the camera and flipped onto the view next to my door. Chica was right next to my door. Instead of looking at the door like I’ve seen her do in the past, she was looking in the window. I quickly spun around, seeing the eerie cartoon character looking right at me through the window. Normally, Chica isn’t too unnerving, but then usually I’m only seeing her on a computer screen walking around. Seeing her looking right at me, through complete blackness no less, was deeply unsettling. Then a distorted voice crackling with static spoke through it.
“𝙳𝚘-𝚍𝚘-𝚔𝚗𝚘𝚠-𝚊𝚙𝚙𝚎𝚗𝚎𝚍?” Chica said. I looked in horror for a moment as the suddenly terrifying entity looked at me through the darkness, speaking without moving a nonexistent muscle. I stared, transfixed, as she continued to stare for what felt like forever. Everything I usually found idly interesting was now disturbing, from the lack of animate movement, to the vacant glass eyes in hollow sockets, to the head turned perpendicular to her chest.
Then, after a small eternity, she simply turned back around and headed back down the hall. I sat down for a moment, hyperventilating. That had never happened before, nothing even comparable had ever happened. When I finally worked up the courage to check the cameras, Chica was looking outside the windows again, one of her usual spots. I didn’t look at her more than I needed to, however. I decided to check the time then.
“How is it already almost six?” I exclaimed. I certainly wasn’t complaining, but there is no way that two hours had passed since Chica had spoken. Maybe it was one of those time loss things you hear about with aliens and stuff. I wouldn’t know.
Nothing happened that night afterward. No more close encounters, no talking, Chica didn’t even move away from the window until the clock hit six. By far, that was the weirdest night so far. I did hear, however, that the technicians or mechanics or whatever will be coming back to do some more tests. Fingers crossed that these issues are resolved.
When Harry came back, he brought two other technicians, whom I was too distracted to learn their names. The plan we discussed over the phone later the previous night was to try and place the malfunctioning pieces from Chica onto other endoskeletons for testing. The donors, in this instance, would be Bonnie and Freddy, due to having the most compatible parts.
As I cleared them for work on Chica, my thoughts drifted back to her. How could they not, given what was going on? This was the first time that an animatronic had, at least on record, spoken. Everyone was antsy about getting the problem fixed, lest we end up with another Tony Anton. But what about her? Would it hurt? Would it be painful? Would she be scared? I looked back at the desk, at the drawer that held her photo. I just hoped that, if this would cause her more suffering, hopefully she would still remember herself, remember not to hurt those around her, and just maybe still find peace.
“Ma’am.” Harry said for the doorway. I spun around to face him. Besides his clipboard, he was empty handed. “I’m sorry to prod, but you seem very uncomfortable with all this. Do you think that they are… haunted?”
“With all that’s been happening,” I sighed, “I just can’t shake the thought. Do you believe that you can speak to those who knew you well in life? Do you believe in heaven or hell? Do you believe in something after death besides nothing? I can’t sit here after all of this and pretend like ghosts can’t be real. And I just don’t want her to get hurt if that’s that case. My own…” I looked back up at Harry. His shoulders were slouched, his eyes averting my gaze. “I’m sorry. I’m rambling. I’m sure you would be too if you lost someone you knew here.” Harry nodded solemnly.
“I suppose I would. Sorry again if this is all too much. I know how it is to have to keep appearances and follow protocol.” Harry responded, readjusting his hat.
“I know. I’ll leave to your work, if you’ll leave a mother to grieve.”
Things just went from creepy to downright scary. I came in tonight figuring that things would be different. What I did not expect, however, was for the rest of the stage cast to join the spooky malfunction club.
When I came in at the beginning of the night, something immediately felt different. Freddy’s always has a strange aura at night that makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end, so I didn’t pay it much mind. Just another night on the job, right? I waited for about a half hour, killing time with the newspaper. Eventually, I turned the camera monitor back on and checked on Chica. She was still standing on the stage, her now head swiveled around to face the camera. It was a little out of place for her, so I got out my notepad and began marking down another uncommon occurrence. Then I got hit with a sense of dread I couldn’t place. Something had slipped past my notice. I looked back up at the camera. Chica was still looking at me, or rather the camera. I analyzed every pixel of her and found nothing wrong. Then it hit me. I looked at Freddy. He was now staring right at me. My jaw dropped. Freddy was NEVER a problem here. I looked at Bonnie. He was also still staring the camera head on.
“Oh shit…” I murmured, frantically scribbling down that Freddy and Bonnie had started moving. Before I was even finished writing my incomplete sentence, I heard footsteps approaching me.
