✈️Order Timeline✈️
Heads up, I have NOT seen/felt the auth bag in person and am only rating based on the pictures I am comparing the rep to from Fashionphile and based on the canvas comparison to my other authentic pieces
💕Quality - Rating 10/10💕
You guys, I can't find a fault with the quality of this bag! The zippers are super smooth and the canvas feels AMAZING - just like my authentic pieces. The leather on the handle, tab, and straps feels really nice, and the stitching looks well done. The hardware has all the correct stamping and feels quality. I really don't have anything to complain about!
💕Accuracy - 9/10💕
-0.25 for the date code being inside the pocket vs. outside like the auth (unless this varies? CCW!)
-0.25 because the front leather tab and inside tab are smooth and not grainy like the authentic (see comparison photos)
-0.50 for the monogram being just slightly too saturated and slightly too orange in direct sunlight
Auth Dimensions (from LV webite): 6.7 x 8.7 x 3.9 inchesRep Dimensions : 6.25 x 8.5 x 3.5 inches (no deductions because measurements can be off due to human error)
The color of the hardware matches very closely to the shiny hardware on my auth Alma BB. I feel like the canvas texture is the biggest plus for me! I think the older LV pieces have a more grainy canvas, but all my recent auths have a smoother texture just like this rep. This bag has a beautiful sheen as well so I don't feel the need to use my mink oil on it. Ultimately, I don't think this bag is clockable if you wear it out unless you had it sitting next to an authentic (which I've never seen in person so I'm not even sure about that). I wear this bag with confidence and use it most often for casual days out.
💕Satisfaction - 10/10💕
I LOVE this bag - especially for the price. I was also looking into the PSM from God Factory, but I preferred the price from Huahui and didn't feel like the canvas was that off. I felt thought I wouldn't use it as much because I haven't been into backpacks in a while, but the size is perfect for my everyday things and honestly has me thinking about saving for the auth (if I can ever see it in person and feel like my rep is different enough). For now, this bag is incredible!
💕Seller Communication and Service - 10/10💕
Anna is #TeamNoSleep because homegirl is literally always on WhatsApp. She sources from most of the same factories as Linda and Alisa (Repdashians coming through LOL), and usually has a better price. I've bought the most reps from her and have had no issues with getting PSPs, tracking etc. in a timely manner!

2020.08.11 21:03 ThrowRA-SizeProblems Well, the thing you never want to happen as a guy, happened. My GF (F24) told me (M29) I have a small dick.

I posted this in /relationship_advice (https://www.reddit.com/relationship_advice/comments/i6raoo/well_the_thing_you_never_want_to_happen_as_a_guy/) but wanted to get your guys take on the comments. Please bear with me, as there are a number of pertinent facts. I'll be as succinct as possible. My GF and I are in a city that has had Covid seriously affect it. We met when she was quarantining elsewhere and, for a month, dated via FaceTime until she came back to the city.
She is very concerned (as she should be, as she has an autoimmune disorder) about the virus, and because we both have roommates who, for one reason or another, have been in situations that put them at risk of picking up Covid, we still haven't been able to spend much one-on-one time together privately. In any case, after two months of meeting in parks, having picnics, going on bike rides, and being creative with other ways to be with each other safely, it led to this weekend where we could finally spend time privately, and I spent the night at her apartment.
For other reasons, she can't have PIV sex right now. That's fine, there are other things. Anyway, I fingered her to climax and she moved to reciprocate with oral, but here's the thing that's difficult to explain: I'm not a prude and I've had a lot of casual sex, and I only say that to say that performance anxiety is rarely an issue for me. But the combination of four months of no dating or hookups whatsoever to be careful paired with the reality that this was the first time with someone I've built such an emotional connection with over three months (never waited that long before), made the blowjob uncomfortable to me to the point where I asked her if we could stop, and that she didn't need to reciprocate. I just... Didn't want to do that right then, even though I desperately want to be intimate with her... I don't know if that makes sense. EDIT: It's important to mention that, during no part of the blowjob, was I hard and she even said "haha it's soft" while starting to blow me, so she doesn't even really know my size...
In any case, fast forward to a great night cuddling, being close and a great day just being with eachother today - it was awesome. Really.
Up until we were on her couch an hour ago. I can't even exactly recall the comments, but I'll try my best. I have no memory about the segue, but she said "yeah, but I like you, despite the small penis." I paused, and laughed nervously waiting for her to clarify. She proceeded to make something like three more comments, like "at least it isn't a micropenis". By this point enough time had passed that I was desperately waiting to be let in on the joke (even if a 'haha just kidding' would've done little...), that I just got up and went to the bathroom to be alone a few minutes.
Here's the thing: despite the fact that I've fucked around a lot and was willing to hook up casually and whatever, I've always had penis insecurity. I have a smaller flaccid penis, so I've been humiliated in locker rooms, and you can't exactly go "No bro wait a sec, let me just get hard, it isn't actually small!", but also, you see all these porn dicks and it's like... Well, am I small?
I think most men go through this insecurity, but Covid and the resulting isolation really exacerbated it to the point where I finally got a tape measure, just to see.
And I'm average. According to every study done out there I am within the average range, and in fact on the larger side of average (there are webites like https://calcsd.netlify.app/ where you can put your measurements in, and according to their aggregate, I'm in the 65th percentile, and even in the study that puts me at the lowest, I'm still in the 51st percentile).
I know you didn't want to know that much about my dick, but I say that to explain how much those comments really fucking hurt. Months and months ago, I had finally begun the process of not thinking of myself as inadequate, and I was feeling fucking awesome about it. Until just now.
When I finally came out of the bathroom, she tried to say she wasn't being serious. She then explained that the comments came out of a place of insecurity because, despite my telling her i was a sexual person, I had told her to stop blowing me and she was insecure about that and she didn't mean any of it. She explained that she was drunk (she had one fucking beer). She explained that her previous boyfriend was actually way too huge to the point it hurt her (Don't even know why she said this... Thanks for letting me know your ex BF was hung as fuck I guess). She said she had been with smaller guys.
I don't know what to do. She is incredible. Point-blank. I'm not just talking superficially; I'm saying the way she cares about people and causes is so much more than just talking, she donates and when she can't she donates her time to phonebank or volunteer. She lives a life forcing herself to constantly grow her behaviors rather than just simply agreeing with a cause verbally but not by action. I don't have a doubt she's incredible. But this hurts so fucking much. Obviously I can't talk about it but I just spent three months getting over my penis insecurity only to be torn down by someone I trusted to avoid saying these kinds of things, moreso than others because of the way she cares... But she still said those things. To her credit, she fully acknowledged that what she said was awful and even admitted that people had said similar things to her, so she knows how hurtful it all is and she has even stopped talking to people completely over comments like that. So... She gets how hurtful it is. But she still said them.
I believe her when she says she doesn't think I'm small, but the fact that she was trying to tease me over that shit still has me fluctuating between sorrow and rage. This is the equivalent of me looking my GF in the eyes and telling her I like her even if she has a loose pussy, and then saying "no I don't really think that. In fact my previous GF was tight as fuck and that actually caused problems." Wouldn't the first comment ruin you, ladies? Wouldn't the second one not do a thing to make you feel better?
It was such a good time this weekend. It's such a good, deep, honest, caring relationship, unlike any I've had before. But why the hell did she have to hit on the one insecurity I suffer with the most? I even accept that objectively, I'm at a minimum, average. But now that she's made those comments, they can't go back in the box. Even if I choose to look past it, what's the first time we actually try to get intimate going to be like? Am I going to be able to stand in front of her naked again? Fuck this.
I appreciate any and all advice on how to approach this moving forward. Would you take her comments about her ex and about my size at face value? I didn't say in the other thread, but my bone-pressed stats are 6" x 4.7", so pretty average... I'm just still so fucked up over this.
This all happened Sunday, and we talked yesterday at the park. To her credit, she is extremely apologetic, understands what she said was toxic, hates that she hurt me that way, and is currently trying to figure out what made her react to her insecurity in such a hurtful way. I honestly felt great about the conversation... But now I can't stop thinking about why she went straight there. Why immediately call my dick small. Why double down. Why try to humiliate me like that. Why ever tell me about her ex's huge dick (although I understand that large penises being hurtful is a regular concern... How can I ever know if that's true or just another excuse to keep me from leaving?).
Would love some help unpacking and thinking about all this.

2020.07.15 13:00 Alarmed-Highlight-57 Email To Me From Porter Stansberry,Agora Inc Just Before Rey Rivera's Death

I think this link from offshorealert.com which was actually David Marchant's offhorebusiness.com when I posted it there,has all the email correspondence with Stansberry from 2005,one year before the death of Rey Rivera.Much has been lost or hidden since that time and the closing of all the indymedia.org websites I used to use.Besides the link here is the email in which he invites me to the office of Agora in 2005. The reason Stansberry refers to me as William Knowles is because that was one of many names and aliases I had to use to get a new account and email at raginbull.com that deleted one account after the other for my posting on Endovac and other message boards about penny stock fraud.British-Israeli Michael Zwebner running the 'UCSY' or Air Water Corp scam sued CNN and Wolf Blitzer for $100 million in a Florida court in 2005 because of my creation of wolfblitzzer0 as one of my many aliases.Unfortunately CNN and Blitzer had an interest in covering up Zwebner's high level Israeli govnment connections such as Ehud Olmert and Moshe Katzav, and so they never even mentioned the case on CNN even after the litigation had ended.In my opinion the ex SEC attrorney Brent Baker as well as Karen Martinez who claimed Rivera may have been murdered by defrauded investors let Stansberry and Davidson walk.For that they both indirectly are responsible for Rey Rivera's death.It would not be surprising at all to me if some Masonic Lodge member or members were behind those worthless penny stocks that Stansberry paid Rivera to promote.Brent Baker later was employed or bribed for his cover up by getting a job from Overstock.com's Patrick Byrne.Strangely I ran across a Salt Lake City news article about his defending a Stanford hedge fund perpetrator in which he says he was in NY on 9/11 and had an appointment that morning at the WTC just before all heil broke loose. https://www.offshorealert.com/forums.aspx?g=posts&t=38237

Tony (er...William Knowles...),
Using Google to research people will lead you to make a lot of strange connections. One time I shared the first class cabin of an airplane with John Waters, the famous film maker. He lives in Baltimore too. But it's not a conspiracy. In fact, I hate his movies and I think he's a total nut job.
You're drawing the same kind of bizarre conclusions between me and Jim Davidson.
I've never had a substantive conversation with Jim Davidson. I've been in the same room with him less than half a dozen times. He was a childhood friend of Bill Bonner. They started Agora together. Bill was the copywriter. Davidson was the editor. Davidson quickly sold out to Bill, who built the business over a 30 year period. Later Davidson left the company, at least in part because his stock picks tended to be very risky. Agora is now the parent company of my business. That's the only connection -- Jim used to work with the people I work with today. Jim, by the way, is in his mid-50s. I'm in my early 30s. We are in two completely separate peer groups. We're not friends. We're not associates. And we never have been.
I started my publishing company, Stansberry & Associates Investment Research in 1999. Our editorial rule -- from the first day -- was that we would not buy any stock we wrote about until after we gave our readers a fair chance to buy it. However in 2003, to make the rules even more clear, we simply forbade any of our writers from owning ANYTHING they write about. No subscriber or government agency has ever, during my entire career, brought a charge against me of attempting to "front run" or pump and dump stock. We make it very clear to all subscribers THAT WE DO NOT INVEST IN THE THINGS WE WRITE ABOUT.
The SEC did bring suit against me in 2002 for publishing what it alleges was a fraudulent report on USEC (NYSE: USU). There was never any allegation that I owned shares of that company or that I recommended the stock in order to move its share price in any way. It is a case of "he said, she said," nothing more. My source at the company denies telling me the things I wrote about. In my report, by the way, I predicted USEC's share price would double because of a new pricing agreement with a Russian supplier. The agreement happened three weeks after I predicted it would and the stock nearly tripled by the time our court case began. Those are facts, you can look them up. I recommended USEC in May of 2002, at $6.50. Davidson was mentioned in one SEC filing as an example of the kind of work I do. The judge rebuked the SEC for mentioning Davidson in our case, as he was not a party to it. You can contact Judge Garbis about all of this to verify it.
Brent Baker was the SEC lawyer who investigated me. During our case he left the SEC and gave us information about the SEC's motives in our case in the hope that we would hire him. We filed a brief about his behaviour -- which was completely bizarre and totally unethical. We didn't hire him. I don't know why anyone would hire that guy...he's real creep.
Regarding Freedom Fest: I was invited to speak by Mark Skousen, the conference organizer. I've known Mark for 10 years. He's a very well respected economist/professor (teaches at Columbia) and has written probably a dozen history/economic books. I didn't realize it was going to be a neo-con love fest or I wouldn't have shown up. I don't think Davidson was there, by the way. I didn't see him at any rate. I did see George Gilder. And I did see Bill Bonner. I gave a presentation on some research I'd been doing on the lack of private savings in the baby boomer generation and the larger problem of bankrupt pension plans. Thus the title "Generation Debt." Here's a copy, more or less, of the speech I gave. This version is from an essay I wrote early during my research of the problem: http://wwwdailyreckoning.com/Issues/2002/112602.html
Regarding my group's recommendation of Overstock.com, the article was written by Graham Summers. He is the editor of our "Inside Strategist" newsletter. The recommendation was a follow-up to one that Graham wrote more than a year ago on the same company -- long before any of this "naked shorting" nonsense errupted. Graham recommends stocks when they have a lot of inside buying. Overstock.com qualified because the CEO was buying big chunks ($10-$12 million) of stock. No other reason. Graham, by the way, has never met Jim Davidson and has never spoken with him.
I don't know anything about Jim's business dealings...in England or Dubai...or anywhere else.
I run a very honest business with nearly 40 hardworking employees and thousands of satisfied customers in over 120 countries. We give refunds to any subscriber who is not happy with our work. We do not cheat anyone nor would we endorse or condone any kind of fraudulent stock market activity. I don't know anything about "naked shorting" the National Taxpayer's Union, or almost anything else you've written about.
I would invite you, again, to meet with me and my staff at our offices (1217 St. Paul Street) in Baltimore at any reasonable time. I would be happy to give you more third party references who can verify the facts I've shared with you here.
And I would ask you to please correct, pull down or amend any and all statements you've made about me, my business, my publications or my staff that allege or imply any wrongdoing or business dealings with Jim Davidson.
Your postings -- even though they're totally baseless -- could have a material impact on my reputation and thus the economic well being of my business.
Thank you.

Below is email from Lila Rajiva who sent it to me in 2005 the same year Porter Stansberry contacted me.Although the Chicago Mercantile and porn trafficker Jimbo Wales gave her a Wikipedia vanity biography and she used to blog incesently and published a book on U.S. military torture and rape of Iraqi at Abu Graibe and then did a book,'Mobs,Markets and Messiahs.' with Bill Bonner they had some kind of falling out and she did some blog posts attacking him.She also attacked me of couirse after first contacting me with emails below pretending she was searching for the truth about Agoa Inc.,etc..
In recent years she seems to have vanished although she did write a good article about Agora and a penny stock scam called Goldcor that claimed to get gold from a black sand beach in Costa Rica.It also had a mysterious death or murder,(also labeled a suicide), of an executive of the company in late 1980s or early 1990s.A copy of her article must still be around because I reposted it around the web long before her websites disappeared.Wonder what happened to her vanity Wikipedia bio ?
In the early 2000s James Dale Davidson posted widely on the internet that he was the founder of Agora as well as NTU.The National Taxpayers Union or NTU is located in Alexandria,Virginia to be close to the SEC headquarters I guess.Davidson kept himself president of the NTU for many years and took over again after the unexplained death of a Mr.BertHoud some years ago.The NTU webite simply said they found him 'in peace' at his house.Davidson's pal Steve Forbes was also NTU president years ago.
Subject: Re Agora and Davidson Date: Fri, 21 Oct 2005 00:25:56 Dear Mr. Ryall, I read with interest your articles on the net regarding Agora Publishing and the stock ventures of the founder, James Dale Davidson. However, I was led to believe that Bill Bonner well-known copywriter and author is the founder. Can you please clarify this as I have had some dealings with the latter gentleman and am concerned about such connections. Could it be that you are mistaken in your accusations? Sincerely Lila Rajiva
Dear Mr. Ryals: Thank you for all this information. I will certainly keep it in mind. I plan to work for Mr. Bonner only in a limited way and with nothing to do with his stock activities or selling. I am a writer and and planning on working on a book with him that has nothing to do with finances. I appreciate this information and do thank you for it. But I am not in a position to ascertain the truth of it and don’t have the time as well. I hope that you will be able to recoup your losses. I sincerely feel for you about that as I suffered similar losses through unscrupulous individuals. Kind regards Lila Rajiva
Lila Rajiva& [lrajiva (at) hotmail.com](mailto:lrajiva*hotmail.com) To: [endoscam (at) lycos.com](mailto:endoscam*lycos.com) Subject: Re: Re Agora and Davidson Date: Thu, 27 Oct 2005 02:19:44 Dear Mr. Ryals, I did speak to Mr. Bonner about Porter Stansberry. He was very forthcoming and adhered to the position that he was not guilty of any legal wrong doing, such as pump and dump. He seemed a very open and sincere individual so I am a bit puzzled.It’s quite possible that some of his associates are involved things he is not aware of. Or that they were only inexperienced or needlessly zealous, which was unfortunate, but may not be illegal. Do let me know if you come across anything else. Lila Rajiva

IndoEuropean Dedicated Topic #1: The early cultures of the steppe and the rise of the Yamnaya

https://preview.redd.it/g0rgtvw548841.png?width=1250&format=png&auto=webp&s=9b7021933afa5daa28b18028461fcb1dcd263208
First of all, I wish you all a happy new year! Big shout out to all the quality contributors to this subreddit, and a shoutout to all the lurkers in the back as well!
Now that it is out of the way, let's talks about the dedicated topic series. These threads will be about a particular topic of interest, in which we can all talk, theorize, question, drop knowledge. I will leave these posts stickied to the page, until the next topic has been made. Depending on the topic, these threads will be there for at least a week, but up to a month. I will also consistently update the text in the thread, add new materials and fix errors.
u/ImPlayingTheSims suggested this topic to me, so if there is a certain topic you want to discuss, let me know. Just leave it in a comment or send me a DM.
I will provide some basic context and information about the topics, as well as some interesting links and resources to start you out. I would very much appreciate it if you could share some materials too.
Potential topics for the next Dedicated Topic:
  • Bell Beakers and Corded Ware
  • The eastwards spread of the Indo-Europeans (Sintashta, Iranians, Tocharians)
  • Were the Mitanni ruled by Indo-Aryans?
  • The Indo-European aspects of the Xiongnu and Huns
  • The Indo-European aspects of the Etruscans
Anyways, enough of this nonsense let's get into it!

The early steppe cultures and the rise of the Yamnaya

Ever since genetic research has re validated the Kurgan hypothesis for the Proto-Indo-European homeland, there has been much focus on this archaeological culture from the Pontic steppe known as the Pit Grave, Yamna, or Yamnaya culture. They were one of the many Western Steppe Herder groups which had a massive genetic impact in Europe, and the descendants of the Western steppe herders managed to spread across a territory ranging from Ireland to China, before 1000 BC.
The Yamnaya were a semi-nomadic pastoralist society, from roughly 3300-2800 BC, and their one of the first to domesticate the horse. Their was a massive diffusion of their lifestyles, and genetics across Eurasia. This culture is considered by many the starting point of the Indo-European migrations, making them therefore the (late) Proto-Indo-Europeans, the speakers of the language which was ancestral to all modern Indo-European languages.
But is it really that simplistic?
Far from it!
The Yamnaya were dominated by (but not limited to) the Y-DNA haplogroup R1b-z2103, but the most prevalent steppe haplogroups in Europe are actually the R1b-L151 and R1a-m417 subclades. Ancestry goes far beyond haplogroups of course, 25% of your ancestry comes from your maternal grandfather but you do not carry his haplogroups. In addition, the dominance of certain haplogroups in regions could very well have arosen from the patrilineal and patrilocal kinship systems in which these pastoralists lived in.
Another issue is the timing. Did you notice the (late) in front of the Proto-Indo-European? That is because PIE likely had several phases, and the earliest phases (Anatolian) likely branched off before the Yamnaya even came into existence.There are also western migration (see Usatovo) which predated the Yamnaya migrations. So their relevance should only pertain to Late Proto-Indo-European.
The importance of the Yamnaya was based on archaeological timing. They establish themselves on the steppes and soon after we see a massive diffusion of that steppe culture going west, transforming into the Corded Ware culture. But did we perhaps back the wrong steppe culture?
Personally I think it is too early to state that, especially since the archaeogenetic data is still revealing new insights with each study released.
Unfortunately, we do not know much about these people. They did not have writing, nor did they leave many monuments behind. Luckily we do have burial mounds (kurgans), which contained their bodies and their prized goods, and from this we can at least learn quite a bit. At least if you know how to read Russian, because most archaeological papers on these cultures tend to be written in Russian.
Based on the various linguistic features and religious myths of Indo-European cultures we can sort of piece together what the Western steppe herders might have been like culturally, and what language they might have spoken. A study of ancient genetics and archaeological sites should also reveal cultural practices which could shed a light on how these societies worked.
We know that the Yamnaya were not an isolated population which sprung up from the earth as Tacitus would say. Before their time, there were several ancestral steppe cultures such as the Repin, Khvalynsk, Sredny Stog and Samara cultures. If we go even beyond that we get the Eastern Hunter gatherers and the Caucasian hunter gatherer populations, or the ancient north Eurasians which was ancestral to both those groups and was also ancestral to Native Americans.
What I want to uncover in this thread is:
  • who were the ancestors of the Yamnaya, both from a genetic and archaeological point of view?
  • When did the horse start playing a role in their society, and when was it domesticated?
  • How long did it take for the Yamnaya to be the dominant culture of the steppe, and how where the other cultures replaced?
  • What were the relations between the people of the Pontic Steppe and their neighbours and contemporaries such as the Tripilian farmers to their west, the Maykop in the Caucasus, or the distant city building Mesopotamians?
  • When did copper tools first enter the region, and how widespread was the usage of copper in the region?
I encourage all of you to make posts on several of the /ask subreddits, or even other webites, to find as much information as you can, so that we together can learn a lot more about the early days of the Pontic Steppe and how the Yamnaya developed. Hopefully we can come across an archaeologist with expertise in that area!

Revision (April 2020):

After three months of reading, chewing down the information and some new archaeogenetic data I figured I'd return to this thread and share some things which I had not before.
The biggest news is that a very specific R1b haplogroup has now been found in both an early Corded Ware and an Afasanievo sample, in Switzerland and Mongolia respectively. That haplogroup being R1b-L151, which was still a sort of missing link type of connection. Well now it has been uncovered in steppe migrations going both ways. This certainly opens the door for the haplogroup having been present in the Repin and Yamnaya cultures for instance, since the Afasanievo are basically considered to be genetically identical to the Yamnaya.
More and more R1b is popping up in Corded Ware samples, a late Corded Ware site in Poland were all carriers of R1b-M269, which to me highlights that the simplistic narratives of R1a=Corded Ware and R1b=Yamnaya are what they are, simplistic narratives.
Another point I'd like to highlight is the Piedmont steppe, or the North Caucasus steppe. In the paper of the genetic prehistory of the Caucasus, there were two sites called Progress and Voyunchka, I'll just refer to both as Piedmont steppe. This was a population which had about 50% CHG and 50% steppe ancestry, and they were the likely vectors of the CHG ancestry which slowly starts appearing in the 5th millennium bc.
Interestingly the Khvalynsk cemetery shows a rate between 0-50% of CHG admixture, those higher individuals likely coming from the Piedmont steppe. I should note that this CHG is best described as ancestry which is very similar to Caucasus hunter gatherers, rather than just Caucasus hunter gatherers in general. There apparently is a little distinction between the two and their lineages had thousands of years of separation.
There also was a genetic influx from the west via the early European farmers. Alexandria 16551 is a sample which had Y-dna R14-M417 with about 80% steppe and 20% EEF admixture. Sounds like an early Corded Ware person from 2800 bc right? Well it turns out it is a Sredny Stog individual from 4000 bc, well before the existence of the CWC.
So the genetic soup so to say were Eastern hunter gatherers, with EEF ancestry coming in from the west, and Caucasian ancestry coming from CHG rich steppe groups in the North Caucasus steppe, resulting in admixture breakdowns such as 55% EHG, 35% CHG and 10% EEF in the Yamnaya.
Here is a simplified chart for these cultures which I will be updating over time:
Material culture Dates (BC) Location Lifestyle Horses? Simplified ancestry Y-DNA
Samara 5000--4500 Eastern steppe Fisher-Foragers Wild horse bones in burials and horse figurines EHG with minor WHG (the Samara HG is the oldest blue eyed blond haired person found) R1b1*
Dnieper-Donets 5000--4200 Western steppe Fisher-Foragers transitioning into agriculturalists Wild horse bones in burials and horse figurines EHG with minor WHG R1b, I2
Khvalynsk 4900-3500 Eastern and central steppe Pastoralists. Copper working appears Early signs of Horse Domestication Mostly EHG with minor CHG R1b, R1a, J, Q1a
Sredny Stog 4500-3500 Western and central steppe Agro-Pastoralists. Copper working appears Early signs of Horse Domestication Mostly EHG, with minority CHG and EEF. R1b, R1a-m417
Piedmont steppe ? North Caucasus steppe Unknown Unknown 50% CHG, 50% EHG R1b-V1636
Steppe Maykop (likely not PIE speaking) 3800-3000 North Caucasus steppe Pastoralists with wagons ? (likely) 50% WSHG (Botai like ancestry) 50% Piedmont steppe WSH Q1a2
Repin 3900-3300 Entire Pontic-Caspian steppe Pastoralists, wagons introduced (3500 bc) Yes Presumed similar to Yamnaya R1b-Z2103, R1b-L151(?)
Yamnaya 3300-2800 Entire Pontic-Caspian steppe, Carpatian mountain region Pastoralists living in wagons Yes 55% EHG, 35% CHG, 10% EEF Z2103, I2, L23*
Afasanievo 3300-2800 Siberia and Mongolia Agro-pasoralists with wagons Yes Identical to Yamnaya Z2103, Q1a, R1b-L151
Some pictures to get you in the mood:

2019.08.11 21:57 wild_tomatillo [Interest Check] Monday 19th August Darts @ Flight Club - Shoreditch

Edit - Flight club has been booked. Check out the new post

Hi everyone :) so u/tammyLSC has kindly let me take the reins (and responsibilty!) of organising our next event. This time it's been decided as Flight Club in Shoreditch! The date and time i'm looking to book is Monday 19th August 7.15pm.
For those who have not been or heard of this wonderful place it's basically interactive darts with multiplayer games. Here are more details from the website. Newbies and regulars over the age of 18 are welcome to come. You don't need to have the dart skills of Phil "the power" Taylor to play, just try to aim for the board!
I've had a gander on the website and i think the best option is to book an Oche (playing area) for 1.5 hours for between 12-20 people at £52.50 total. If enough people are interested and willing, we can look at booking 2 hours at £70 total. We can divide the costs up depending on how many of us are coming.
On the webite it states Each playing area can fit up to 20 guests, with 12 people able to play at once. When you arrive, we’ll show you how to add, rotate and remove players between games so that everyone gets an equal play time**.** So i guess this means if we have up to 20 of us come, some can play while some spectate/grab food & drink. I will ensure equal play time is possible so we can all enjoy.
I'm doing an interest check for now as the booking needs to be paid for in advance. I'm sure this event will be popular but just to be on the safe side if you could kindly comment below if you're free and able to come i'll look at booking this on Wednesday and put a post up with more details.
Looking forward to seeing you all there!

2019.03.26 14:22 bbraham I fucked shit up majorly - need advice (depression/oneitis)

Hi,

I'm currently in a dark place in my life and would be very thankful for some advice. I'm 21 and in a country where college is free.

I studied at a pretty shitty college for 2 semesters and decided its not what I want/the degree is not worth it and applied for CS at a better college in the same town. I didn't get accepted into the program because I thought the entry exam would be easy (dumb mistake). However I was able to get a job as a software developer instead.

I started the new job around September, this was when I met this girl which turned slowly turned into a onenitis.

I was not satisfied with my living situation because my roommates were always interrupting my sleep, and with the combination of sleep deprivation + huge stress at work I developed a depressive episode around december, which im still not out of as of now.

I could not concentrate/get shit done anymore and was fired from my job. I went to a psychiatrist and am now on medication (effexor) and therapy, which helped abit, but I still suffer from all possible depression symptoms which makes it really hard to function. The last months I was not able to be consistent with gym/work/social life because I just couldn't get out of bed and didn't function like a normal human beeing.

I moved back in with my parents in the meanwhile to avoid the toxic living situation.

Now onto the girl part, I had sex with the girl for the first time back in September. Looking back I ignored so many red flags its crazy.. good thing I didn't LTR her.

Here are a few:
Had sex on the first date, without condom (Yes I am dumb)
She is still in contact with her exes
I know both of her exes (not best friends whatsoever, but yes)
She travels to places alone
Even told me she hooked up with a girl once on a solo trip of hers
She even filmed her ex and told me how dumb he was/how they only argued and how she didn't really feel anything for him, then meets up with him again when hes in the country lol.

My intention in the beginning was to treat her like a plate only, however I got more and more attached and didn't spin other plates, when the depression started I got more and more sucked into her frame. She started treating me like shit and disrespecting me, and I didn't put her into her place in the beginning. Developed oneitis.

Then we kind of told each other we only want to fuck each other, and see each other exclusively. One day I looked at her phone and she was snapping with Chad in front of my eyes, I even asked her who that guy was and she told me a friend. The next day I looked at the snap map of the girl and guess where she was.. at Chads place.

I nexted/ghosted her without explaining myself which was the best thing I could do I guess, I was getting too attached and couldn't hold frame because of my depression.

Now I'm really fucked up and in a depressive state, which I can't seem to get out of. I suffer from severe sleep/memory/concentration problems which really fuck me up.

I am forcing myself into the gym again, it's fucking hard but it makes me feel abit better. The combination of gym/therapy/meds seems to help, but there is no end in sight..

Before the meds I tried everything from meditation to yoga, nothing seemed to help.

Work wise I still have a webite which im earning money from, which kind of saves my ass at the moment.

I could really use some advice on how I can get out of this rut again.

The only way to do that is to remain laser focused on what matters — the product itself!" (Jure Soklic)

2017.02.06 08:37 thanhtructran Web Designer Malaysia

A Web Designer Malaysia should also be well-experienced in search engine optimization. At times, he is asked to proofread certain contents in order to make sure no error whatsoever exists in the final version. Debugging codes and possible re-designing of Webite Designer Malaysia pages are amongst probable scenarios in the life of a web designer. One other area in which a web designer should be highly-trained is working with content management systems.A Web Design Malaysia works with data, graphics and web pages. He should be able to work his way around content management systems since the content means everything in the world of web design. A Web Designer should also remain available for ‘post-sales’ technical support. In order to keep up-to-date with the latest in design technology, he is expected to follow current trends in Website Designer and take active part in software development courses and events.

I was curious about the participation rate in this sub, so I did a little data gathering and put together some stats, summarized below and in the following pdf file:

The data came from a reddit stats webite and a Python script that was created by someone with some technical skills (which I lack). Links to each are below. The script is re-usable and should work with any subreddit you specify, but it requires Python 3, grab and openpyxl libraries to be installed.

If you're curious how this compares with the MaM sub, I posted similar stats on that over here.

2016.04.16 03:51 jamaican117 Yahoo Fantasy Baseball App

So I'm a baseball fan, but I don't usually do fantasy sports. A friend of mine guilted me into it, but I'd like to be able to manage my league on the go. The mobile webite sucks and the only 3rd party app might work fine, but has not been updated in years and has a super dated design. Says there is an API so can I hold out hope?

Hi has anyone heard of this company before in the UK? Anyone had any dealings or experience with them? They have loads of things very well priced but as the site looks dated have been hesitant!
