2021.12.05 08:42 Drecon1984 [Teletubbies] The origins of the Teletubbies
I've read up on the series a bit (don't judge me, I have a 1-year old son and I have nothing better to do while watching stuff like this) and apparently the Teletubbies were modeled on astronauts. It makes sense as their home basically looks like a flying saucer and everything is driven by a supercomputer.
Tinky Winky (the oldest) is 3 years old, so it does beg the question: Why are these four alien children on earth?
By the way: I assume they are on earth, as they are in a meadow that looks like earth and they are constantly learning about what children on our planet are doing. (I assume the baby in the sun is creative license, although you could probably make a case for some symbolism there I guess? Any theories on that are welcome here I think)
One more thing that is important to realize here is that the whole situation is set up as a way to let the Teletubbies learn about their environment in a safe manner and have them be parented by the technology around them. Their spacesuits are outfitted with televisions and antennas to make sure they can always be communicated with.
So I have formulated three theories. I'll end with the one I think is most likely, although it is the most boring of the three.
1: The Teletubbies' planet was destroyed (Superman-style) and they are the last of their kind. Their species has sent them into space to try and give their species a chance to survive. One strike against this I think is that the whole spaceship AI and everything around it would have taken a long time to set up and if their species had so much time, why didn't they find a way to save more of their kind and actually save a few adults as well? It doesn't seem to make sense.
2: They are an advance invasion force, set out into the universe to find good planets to conquer. This could fit, since the Teletubbies are clearly there to learn more about the world, but my main problem here is that the AI seems more intent on teaching them understanding of this world than anything else. I don't see any hint that this species has any plans to take over this world.
3: They are sent to this world to learn more about other cultures and to breed understanding for other ways of life. The whole idea seems to be that the Teletubbies are here to observe and to learn about this world. Maybe they are to report back when they have grown up and teach others about this world or maybe it's a way this species uses to let their children be open to different cultures and have them accept others as they are. One last thing that makes me vote for this interpretation is that the Teletubbies have different skin colors, so their species is clearly okay with them being treated the exact same, no matter what they look like. I think this is a mission of peace.
Anyone have any other ideas about all this? I just started thinking about this so much that I felt obligated to join this sub ;)

2021.12.05 08:42 Cloudread3002 [SPOILERS] Theory on Aria's back story.
So I was playing LE, and I, of course, like any good completionist, got all the dialogue possible. Now, in so doing, I obviously uncovered Wrex's lines about having fought an Assari mercenary. An Assari mercenary who survived. And the employer was a Volus. Now, in ME2, Aria says (in relation to patriarch) "not even the first krogan I pissed off", she also says she used to be a commando (or at least commando training) and mercenary. She also says it's easy to outlive a salarian but not their book keeping. Well, guess who Wrex's employer was, a Volus, the galaxy's biggest bankers and bookkeepers. All this makes me wonder whether Wrex and Aria fought all that time ago. Thoughts?

Is it possible to reset my mouse position to the middle of the screen with a macro or text command? I can move the mouse itself but i mostly play with a controller so slotting a macro to move the mouse automatically would be ideal to more easily use mouse over macros

2021.12.05 08:42 DrBeanPHD Putrefaction
The black pit in my stomach Sinking lower into myself Racing against a lit match A dying flame, a breath catching So quick
I can taste the blood on my tongue The fire ants that crawl on the roof of my mouth And crowd around my uvula A pendulum that swings for death
Choking on courtesy The yes please and the thank yous that chip my yellow teeth after I grit them
Choking on a front The beetles huddle on my upper lip A tight line, a narrow road For them to settle on Before they make their way up my nostrils
The bugs can smell decay They see me rotting away under chipped nail polish, Sallow skin that pulls tightly over my head thanks to safety pins and careful stitching
Under the perfume you can still smell it Cherry blossoms torn up by caterpillars ‘Paracidic’
I sit rigidly at the dinner table Face melting Trying to ignore the worms that have slipped into my ears And the spiders prickling my eyes A black moon eclipsed
But I’m sure it all washes down fine
With a cold glass of water
And a good night’s rest.

2021.12.05 08:42 JanIntelkor Can I use existing water for new caridina tank?
I currently have 100l neocaridina and fish tank, with a RO to fresh water ratio around 2:1, my both shrimps and fish are very happy. But I'm planning to start a new tank, only for caridina. And since I already have a cyclee tank, with plenty of RO water in it, can I like pour some water to the new tank, so it will have already "cycled" water? Or maybe put a new filter in big tank so it will gain the bacteria? The time is a key for me, are this ideas good or should I do it other way?

Overtime can create some very tense clutch moment. I feel like a Rush match should go into overtime when: 1. An objective is armed. Overtime till it blows or is disarmed.
2021.12.05 08:42 ChookiTr How can I upgrade my PC? Aesthetics?
So I've recently built my first PC:
- Ryzen 5 5600x with stock cooler. Asus strix B550-F wifi mobo. RTX 3060. 16GB DDR4. 1TB M.2 SSD. 650W 80+ Bronze RGB PSU.
What can I upgrade or add to my case? It's a MSI MAG Forge 100R. I've already got 6 fans (3 front, 2 top, 1 rear) for aesthetics but im yet no pleased with the rest. What's a good but budget AIO you guys recommend. My budget is about $400 for the next upgrades. Would like to get an AIO and maybe upgrade RAM? (Is 32GB necessary?)

2021.12.05 08:42 DuhhIshBlue I prefer to get bad news over text than in-person
When I'm around other people I need to regulate my emotions. If I'm getting bad news I'd much rather a text saying "_____ died" and just to be able to reply "okay" and either be fine in private or cry in private. Phone calls are only slightly better than in-person but to be fair I hate them in usual circumstances too.
