2021.12.05 01:39 Mycroab [RANT] I genuinely like the new Wheel of Time show, and I'm becoming annoyed at the reasonings of some of those that do not

Full disclosure this is largely taken from an earlier comment I made in another post.
I've seen a lot of hate on reddit and the internet at large for the new Wheel of Time series, and it has bugged me in a number of ways. Now, to be fair, I am a big fan of the books, so I am starting out thoroughly biased. That being said, I recall looking at IMDB and reddit on the first day the episodes were released, and it was basically a hate-storm for the show. People said it was a generic fantasy clone, it was trash acting, it was a poor remake of game of Thrones (SO MANY comparisons). I saw people complaining it was too slow, while other complained it was too fast ; and all the while I'm reading these issues in growing perplexity, I'm also becoming annoyed at the fact that most of the few positive comments on the show were served with heavy caveats or apology, as if the people saying they liked it were admitting the show was not worth looking.
While I am absolutely willing to concede on some points, such as not caring for all of the deviations from cannon (look at you, late introduction to Thom Merrilin), and not being sold yet on their representation of SaidaSaidin, I did want to address a few of the major specific points that have been bugging me.
As for the feeling like generic fantasy bit, keep in mind that this series was one of the first to escape from the generic LOTR tropes, and while it's settings and monsters may seem commonplace now, at the time they were written out was a surprising departure in a new format. Brandon Sanderson talks about this in one of the bonus features in the episodes.
Next, the pacing has been described as both too fast and too slow. For those in the slow camp, i'd point out that the first 30% of the book was spent in the two rivers, intruducing the temperaments of each character and their families, as well as giving us a crash course on the myths and legends of the world. So they ruined or a lot to get us through the first episode. For those in the too fast camp, i'd remind you that pacing is both the most important factor for showrunning, and the most difficult to get just right. Television shows don't have the luxury of meandering through narrative without heavy use off a non-present narrator and useless footage, which people generally don't like, or forced and Fane feeling conversation that isn't present in the original. So some things get skipped and reintegrated later in either flashback format or secondary conversation. Rafe Judkins hinted that this is what they're doing in his recent AMA.
On another point, people are having issues with the actors/characters themselves. For starters, I get it. They're not all the best of actors. I've noticed a trend in many shows where they will select an unheard of cast in hopes that they can keep others from pre-defining a character based on the actor's other work. Personally, I think that NOT doing that is one of the strengths of Got. However, I have seen others grow into a role over time and fully embody it, so I'm holding my reservations for now. Also, several others have already pointed this out, but this is early days in A WILDLY long and complex series that is all about the slow-burns and long-term character growth. The main characters all start out pretty plain, and in particular Perrin is described as slow in Shoreham in movement, because he meticulously thinks through everything before doing anything, which makes most purple think he's slow-witted throughout the series. Mat also spends the first couple books being a bit of a bitch because... Reasons. But again, each character grows by leaps as a character throughout the developments in the story, so I'd suggest just letting it happen.
Lastly for me, I'd like to highlight a point someone else made in another thread, and that is about the constant comparisons to the pre-season-8 triumphs of Game of Thrones. GoT became big around season 3, and became the legend that it was in season 4.
So for the love please give it nor that 3 or 4 episodes to judge the quality of a show.
That is all. Rant over. I'm sorry.

2021.12.05 01:39 noodlesfordaddy ENYR is currently mooning thanks to being the top post on SatoshiStreetBets atm

Not sure if everyone is aware but you don't just have to use this sub for copy-pasted shills. There is a genuine diamond in the rough on SSB right now and it's fucking mooning, from 60k to 140k market cap in a couple of hours. Go check it out. It's called Elon's New Year's Resolution.
This needs 1000 characters but I don't have much more to say on the matter except that you should climb on board, this rocket is just getting started.
Here is some filler text so I have 1000 characters lol
✅ Solid, steady growth every day
✅ UNruggable!
✅ Awesome and genuine community, built from the ground up
✅ Great tokenomics
✅ BSCscan verified, CoinGecko and CMC applications submitted
✅ Ready for Elon to mention us 😉
If you hold until New Years you’ll receive additional airdropped tokens! We’ve hit the ground running so far and with marketing starting to ramp up, we’ll be heading towards a $1M market cap in no time. You won’t find a better token to bring in the new year!

2021.12.05 01:38 StockGoods Is it bad to take a lot of vitamins?

I recently bought like 3 bottles of vitamins on top of the three that I already had. They’re all different types, but I’m concerned that they will somehow not work if I take like, all six at the same time. I take them in the morning, and I try to eat something before it, like oatmeal. Is this okay? Or should I take them throughout the day? Idk honestly I’m new to this my mom insists I take vitamins but she’s in Mexico and doesn’t know much about this anyway.

2021.12.05 01:38 ivantheguppy Hellion Part 1

Renzo's eyes shot open to absolute horror. His body felt weightless and frail;
His head, impossibly heavy and ringing. Searing fire consumed his body
from within, creating a dull ache everywhere. Sulfur filtered through his
nostrils and dug deep into him as he began to hyperventilate.
The stale, metallic air made Renzo nauseous as he tried to steady his
breathing. His gut twisted as he attempted to raise a hand. *I can only
move my head.*
"What the hell?," Renzo coughed out. "No!"
Panning his head around, he began to sob. Razor wire twisted back and
forth across his limbs, pinning him to a massive stake. Blood flowed as if on
tap. What the fuck is going on?! His body convulsed with cries, infinite
voids of despair filling him.
Hanging his head, Renzo saw a rope around his neck through the blur of
tears. He winced as fragmented images speared through him. *A hotel
card. A blonde woman. Blood.* His mind knotted with primal fear and
confusion as he took in his new nightmare.
A vermillion sea foamed against scab-like land masses that faded into the
horizon. Monolithic black stakes jutted from the ground, reaching like
charred fingers into the sickly sky. Wrapping them whole were barbed,
fleshy vines that punched up through the ground. Renzo squinted at the
nearest stake. He felt an eardrum burst as the ringing inside him turned into
a primeval scream.
A disfigured body was visible under the barbed veins. Large thorns
punctured the abdomen in several places, drawing blood. Renzo watched in
horror as they throbbed a deep red, pulsing with the rising and falling chest
of the man they pierced.
The head jerked up, forcing Renzos' gaze upon its own. Its mouth contorted
into a silent scream as blood began streaming from empty eye sockets. A
slight pressure quickly morphed into severe pain as Renzo's own eyes
bulged. Sharp prickles coarsed through his left side and his vision went
"Why?! Please!" He cried silently as he saw fleshy vines wrapping around his
stake far below. "No!"
He frantically looked around, noticing for the first time that not all crosses
were occupied. Something that could barely be called hope flickered deep
inside him.
Willing with all his might, his arms slowly pulled away from the stake, goring
his wounds further. His eyes felt like they would pop at any moment. The
vines climbed higher.
"Ahhhhh!" Renzo yelled from deep within, finally hearing his own voice. It
wasn't just his own voice, though.
The hot wind brought screams and yells of torture with it. An occasional
howl of ecstasy punctuated the suffocating wails, silencing all other
sounds for a moment. Renzo doubled his efforts.
Flesh and tendon finally ripped from bone as Renzo yanked with everything
he had. With a rubbery snap he felt the wire shear through his limbs and he
began to fall. The vines flashed by, reaching out for him as he fell faster
towards the boiling sea.
His head was snapped right as he hit flat on the surface of blood, instantly
paralyzing him. He couldn't even weep as total despair consumed him. *No!
FUCK!* Immobile, Renzo was unable to do anything but stare into the
distance as he floated.
On the horizon, clouds the color of an infected wound hung low in the
hellish sky. Pure white bolts continuously struck the ground in silence. Past
all this, an immense ivory wall surrounded something Renzo couldn't make
out. Mentally and physically numb, Renzo began to sink. Blood filled him,
gagging him. Still unable to move, he could do nothing but accept.
Red engulfed Renzo and his vision grew darker. Eventually, everything faded
to pitch black, and ceased to be.

2021.12.05 01:38 Yucan3 How do you encourage someone to do something that would be beneficial without sounding or being too forceful?

There are multiple examples in life where people have tried offering advice but might feel like it will backfire. When is it okay to be pushy, how much is too much and what's the best way to encourage a behavior without getting too pushy?
This only applies to the people I really care about in my life like family and best friends. I find myself getting frustrated when they do not put themselves in a position to do things/tasks that could greatly enhance their life. There's times when I "force" someone to do something and they appreciate it down the line and thank me profusely, and then there's times where it causes arguments and hurts the relationship. What's the best balance?
Random Example 1: Your friend doesn't know how to swim so you offer to go to swimming classes with them so they can learn but they don't want to no matter how easy you make it.
Random Example 2: You have a friend that is awful with money and you suggest them simple tricks to manage their money better, pay off high debt, afterwards maybe open up a Roth IRA and invest vs having just a savings account but they refuse to learn?
Random Example 3: You have a child that watches tv/plays games most days. They have started becoming a bit overweight for their age. You encourage them to do sports with the kids next door or go play ball with you after work, they refuse.
Just some random ones, I can think of off the top of my head
