2022.01.19 22:09 readingupastorm My needy friend
So I'm 40F and my friend is a guy 35M but this is a strictly platonic friendship. If he texts me to do something and I say I've got a date, he'll be like, "Way to go, bro!" I told him I feel zero romantic connection and he said the same thing and I actually believe him. He has plenty of platonic female friends.
He's hilarious at times, and he's definitely been there for me at times when I need to vent. We have common interest in comedy and music. He's a friend, for sure. He's gotten my introverted self out of the house at times too, which is good.
But my God, this man is needy to the point that I don't know what to do. He wants to talk on the phone or text every day and it's at the point where it feels like he's a clinging vine. I've tried telling him three times that he needs to give me space but now I almost want to be mean about it, because he only sort of listens. And I hate being mean, hate confrontation but it's like he modifies his behavior for a while and then goes back to being needy.
For instance he called me EVERY day, despite the fact that I didn't pick up for about a week straight. And normally I'd feel bad doing that, but he did this AFTER I told him he needed to let me answer in my own time and not push me or I'd wanna distance myself. I finally answered, exasperated, and told him he was "so fucking needy". He apologized, explained that he's very extroverted and calls people every day and that I'm never under any obligation to respond because if I don't pick up he just calls some one else and he didn't think about it like I did. I told him phone calls were something I legitimately had to take time out of my day for and he seemed like he was pushing me to respond to him and it was annoying me.
It felt good to clear the air but then he started texting every day or every other day, "do you have time for a call?". I mean, he sort of listened, but it still feels clingy. I'd say "no" every time but still it's like the guy legit can't take a hint. No matter how distant I act, he keeps calling and texting almost every damn day. And it'll just be texts like "yo". And if I ask what's up? "Nothing". What is the point of this?! Blarggh!
I actually don't think this guy likes me in a romantic way, which may sound ridiculous but I truly don't get that vibe. He did tell me he learned in therapy that he latches onto people and sort of makes them be his friends by clinging to them. He's told me he's needy...so he has some self-awareness.
Anyway, this post might make me sound immature for my age and possibly bitchy but I wanted to get some outside perspectives and I don't want to trash talk him to people I know.
I hate ghosting but my God, how often do I have to tell this guy the same thing? Shouldn't he have figured it out by now? And I hate that all I feel is annoyance instead of appreciation for his friendship, but his actions are just that to me. Profoundly annoying. Not sure what to do, either.

2022.01.19 22:09 Successful-Fee4963 Horrible allergies (Face itching, red rashes, paw licking/swelling/redness, vomiting)
Hey everyone, hope your frenchies are doing better than mine. My frenchie is just over a year old and has had SEVERE allergies for months now. We give him Apoquel but it just seems to suck the life out of him and although it does stop the rashes, paw licking and swelling and itching, it also makes him more prone to throwup. Can anybody chime in with their experience and some advice? Greatly appreciated.

2022.01.19 22:09 Oofknhuru The public was purposely mislead surrounding the facts of the Rogel Aguilera-Mederos case.
Rogel Aguilera-Mederos was the truck driver in Colorado that killed 4 people when the brakes on his trailer failed. While operating a tractor trailer in a mountain pass, he disobeyed all common sense, and CDL training. The public was told that the 110 year sentence was too much and all deaths and injuries were not the fault of Rogel. Through public interference, the governor granted clemency and reduced the original sentence to 10 years. If the public knew the facts surrounding the case, most would have NOT petitioned to reduce the sentence.

2022.01.19 22:09 Shatt3r0 The Center of lift is incorrect on all my vehicles after reverting back to editor
This happens no matter what mods I use. I'll be doing fine and then when I revert back to the editor in a simulation the center of lift on all of my vehicles gets set to the probe core. If I ignore this and just keep playing the drag gets messed up and I end up going way higher than I should go (also I go downwards way faster which really sucks for the return from space contract. I've uninstalled and reinstalled, uninstalled KSP itself, and then installed the mods again, exited the VAB, and went back in. Nothing works. The only way to fix it is by reloading the game completely and even then it doesn't stay fixed. FAR is installed, fully updated, and works fine by the way.

2022.01.19 22:09 Toliman4 Acton / Peterson Fellowship grads: where are they now?
I remember the video they put out when the first (and only?) class of Peterson Fellowship students graduated, but haven't heard anything about them since. Have any emerged since then to say anything good or bad about it? Did any of them get the promised opportunity to "revolutionise education alongside JP", or was that whole thing just another brain-fart?

2022.01.19 22:09 haveyouseenmysnail My go-to journal was an Exceed pocket/small notebook from Walmart, but I can't find it anymore. Are there any good alternatives?
I can't use a large notebook due to limited space in my bag. I hope I can find a small journal with plenty of pages!
Thanks in advance for all your help!

2022.01.19 22:09 JackSpade21 Quack Radio "Doctor"
Has anyone else heard this guy who has a daytime call-in show on 102.1 FM? Yes, I realize it's a complete radio backwater, so who cares, but this guy is fielding calls and actively spreading misinformation regarding the pandemic and vaccination.
His name is "Dr." David Sas, and he sells some kind of "natural remedies" or homeopathic snake oil, while telling people they should NOT get vaccinated against Covid-19 for BS pseudo-scientific reasons. It all sounds very friendly and authoritative, but just today, he was telling people "Just go and get infected with Omicron and get it over with. It won't kill you."
Likewise, of course, he has something to sell you to cater to your anti-vax conspiracy theories. Today, he was hawking something that he claimed would "remove toxins" and "cure you of being vaccinated" if you got the jab "against your will, because your employer forced you to."
It makes me sick to hear dirtbags like this on a public broadcast. Is there some sort of medical governing body that can do something about this kind of misinformation being broadcast?
TL:DR - A shitbag snake oil salesman is spreading vaccine lies on Pittsburgh radio.

2022.01.19 22:09 TheSire Advice on Hue lights underneath this loft?
I'm going to be renovating this room soon. I plan like to get rid of these black lights and put in some hue lights (or lights that I can put hue bulbs into) underneath this loft. I thought about making the underside of the loft solid and putting in recessed lighting, but I think I'd like to maintain the current look. I am considering putting a few gradient light strips spaced evenly every few gaps. Would that look weird? And advice/input is welcome.
