2021.11.28 17:05 Diamunch Scoring issue.
I've been playing the game since launch and atm have all the Maxi challenges unlocked and most finished and im getting frustrated. I'm at 266 badges and currently #15 (Melody is my name on there) on the leader board. I just did all of my dailer and weekly challenges and didn't win a single one due to my score constantly changing and being lower than my opponent. How is it that I can be at 8000 and then, after changing nothing, the next match I dont even hit 5000 so my opponent can win then next match im get 6500? I went from winning no problem to not being able to beat the second level of the last 5 maxi challenges no matter what I do cause I have to have 2 of 3 diffrent categories but the Ai doesn't have to have any of the those lower level ones so they can just bulldoze me with the 2x category. This didn't bother me for awhile but the ladder ends in 2 days and I'm so close to getting to end and yet no matter what I do I can't get any more badges. Please tell me this isn't just a me issue and others are getting screwed over as well

2021.11.28 17:05 Original_Director_46 To the girl who killed all the crabs at the beach. Fuck you
Listen I just saw a video of a crab. And it unlocked a memory.
So I was maybe 8 or 9, and my family had always gone to a protected beach. I remember this was a day after a bad storm, so the beach had more pools and whatnot for animals to be in.
9 year old me LOVED THIS. I had collected crabs in a pale and I just loved the Lil guys. I threw bread in and they ate it, yk, typical 9 year old shit.
But at one point me and my family went to the water when we got back, the crabs in my pale were dead. They were completely crushed. I was devastated. I went back to look for more. But the pools were filled with dead crabs. This probably 16 year old girl was fuckin killing all of them. I saw it, and told my mom. She reported it, and the park troopers came, and I remember seeing this girl and her family getting kicked out of the beach. I remember feeling so fuckin happy, my lovely crab friends had some sort of redemption. I like to think their little crab souls were satisfied with what I did. I remember the gulls coming in for the scraps, so at least the crabs weren't killed for nothing.
Idk, I remembered that bothered me for a few days as a kid. One dead crab is fine, a few, whatever. But I distinctly remember seeing many dead crabs, there were maybe 30 or 40 just dead, in a pool.

2021.11.28 17:05 kcg369 Still no upgrade link?
Tomorrow is the deadline to upgrade from Gen2 to Gen3, and I STILL haven't received an upgrade link from Oura (via email or app).
Has anyone else encountered this? How did you all get your links to eventually come through?
I bought the ring July 2021. I've emailed, sent in tickets through the app, sent social media messages, and Oura has just completely ghosted me.
I'm extremely disappointed - the Gen3 has every feature I wanted and I was excited to upgrade to the free membership, but if I dont get the deal, I don't think I'll swap over.
Let me know your tips in getting a response from Oura!

2021.11.28 17:05 Hadeelll Does VW warranty covers a new tire?
I was driving in the highway when this thing showed up in my dashboard that says “Low tire pressure”. I parked in a gas station and found that there is a nail in my tire (not fixable) so i need to buy a new one. I bought my car a month ago, (i called my insurance roadside assistance) and the guy who replaced my flat tire to the temporary one said dealer should be able to give me a free new tire since its new? Idk if its covered tho? He said fight them into it? Please if anyone had a similar experience let me know. If not covered, what are my options? I checked dealer’s prices in case and it is almost 200 with the installation.
I have no experience in this so any comment would be appreciated. Thank you!🥺💕

2021.11.28 17:05 scottstots_009 Rare complication from Egg Retrieval
I (36f) had my ER the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. Everything went well and they retrieved 10 eggs. I was sent home with a prescription for pain meds but was told not to fill it because I wouldn't need anything other than Tylenol the next day -- stupidly I believed them and we left without filling it.
Wednesday night I started feeling a sharp pain in my right kidney and in my right ovary. I was also getting a burning sensation when I used the restroom so I went to the ER to get tested for a UTI. Everything came back negative and they said my ovaries were incredibly swollen and that was where all the pain was coming from. I was sent home with pain meds and that was it.
Thursday night the pain got so much worse that I started throwing up. I called my clinic who told me to go straight to the ER, which I did.
After lots of testing they found out that during my egg retrieval the catheter hit my ureter and caused a slight bend in it. This was causing a urine backup in my kidneys and was the cause of all the pain. It is apparently a very very rare complication but it can happen and it is insanely painful and scary.
They placed a stent in my ureter and the relief was immediate when I woke up from the procedure.
I have to have the stent in for a few weeks until all the inflammation and swelling goes down and then it will be taken out. I had no idea it was something that could happen and felt crazy because the pain from the ER was so bad when everyone kept telling me it was normal.
All this to say, trust your gut if something doesn't feel right. And also....take the pain meds. Don't listen to the nurse if they tell you Tylenol will be enough. I'm thankful to be finally feeling better but I wish I had filled that medication!
