I’m talking about these, used when creating filtered decks or browsing

Is there a list that lists every possible command?
It’s probably in the manual but I’m blind or sth I can‘t find it

2022.01.20 02:44 fail_bananabread Additional Cultural context for RESET ep12/13. MAJOR SPOILERS

I have a broken right hand rn so bear with typos/abbreviations pls.

So there's a major deviation from the novel it's based on. BTW the main script writer is the author of the novel so rn we just have to trust she's doing it either to make adjustment/expansion to her own work (like how MDZS had an earlier manuscript and the author went back and did some edits) OR it could have been done to pass the censors. Without knowing what 14/15 is like I can't say for sure the reasoning.
In the novel, WMM (driver daughter) did not try to pull on the driving wheel of the bus. She apparently just tried to speak to the driver and didn't do anything aggressive. In fact, in the novel, the character is a really gentle girl/obedient daughtefollows societal rules, and it was one of the reason her mom refused to believe she would get off the bus willy nilly.
But in the drama, she is clearly seen trying to get the driving wheel, and the reaction in the form of hostile internet comment is probably a reference to this incident that happened in chongqing in 2018 where 15 people died (the drama RESET takes place in 2019 and i think the novel was also written in 2019, so the author was clearly inspired in some way by it). A woman got into an argument and got aggressive w the driver and caused the bus to drive off a bridge over the river.
If you watch the youtube video, there's no railing surrounding the bus driver, but in RESET, there's a railing/plexiglass around the driver, those were installed enmasse all over China after the CQ incident in 2018. (I'm not sure if it's a thing in the US, but in Canada there's no railing around the driver like that, and in Beijing and SH I did not see anything like that either when I visited in 2017, so I can say for sure it's a reactionary thing)
In the novel, the driver and wife were both about to move on from their daughter's death, but an internet video meant to teach public transit safety that included a clip of their daughter's death went viral. It's likely that the internet comments are extra venomous taken into account what happened in chongqing.

A major theme of the show so far is cyberbullying and passing judgement onto others without knowing the full story. It's interesting to note that during the CQ bus incident, the driver of the red sedan in the opposite lane (you see her sitting on the side of the road briefly in the youtube video) was initially faced with extreme vitriol because people assumed she caused the bus to crash just because she was at the scene and was a "female driver" wearing a pair of heeled boots (that weren't even very tall heels). People just theorized that she strayed from her lane and caused the bus to swerve.
Another thing that might be a social commentary is the ML is a game developer whose game was stuck at the censorship part because there are elements of violence. Just last December, two Tencent employees committed suicide by jumping off the campus building, one of them a very famous game developer whose dream was to make a Triple-A Chinese game, a feat that's often thought of as impossible due to both technological and cultural limitations in China. It's rumored by those who claim to be working at tencent that the straw that broke the camel's back was his project was cut by Tencent, either because it won't pass censors or to change it in a way to pass censors or to be profitable would require too much compromise on the creator's part to remain true to his vision.
After the news of his death, while the gaming/programming community mourned his death, the other part of the chinese internet celebrated it. Doves of older chinese, mostly parents, claimed that his death was karma because "games corrupt young children's minds" and that game creators are exploiting children. Voices like that are overwhelmingly loud because the older gen make up a larger portion of internet users. Even in articles that criticize such cyberbullying, the top voted comment is "he ruined so many children but we can't talk shit about him?". Needless to say, pretty yikes.
So that gives a bit of context to the way police treated ML when they found out he's a video game developer.
Hope these contexts are helpful and enriches the drama for you!

2022.01.20 02:44 Affectionate_Set_225 Is it wrong to get a tattoo?

So I've lately been considering maybe someday getting a tattoo, but I don't know if I'd be sinning if I did. I can't think of any verse that explicitly says thou shalt not have a tattoo, but at the same time I know that our bodies are a temple to God and that we shouldn't defile it (I know that that verse is referring primarily to sexual purity, but still). So is it more about personal convictions or just don't do it?

2022.01.20 02:44 Swimming_Resource828 (19M) All I care about in life is sex, masturbating, and relationships, and I don't know what to do about it.

I masturbate and watch porn for around 3-4 hours a day. I spend around two hours just browsing through random girls social media accounts on Instagram and TikTok. And whenever I go outside, I can't help but stare at every girl I see because they are just so good looking.
This isn't normal. I need help, and I don't know what to do about it.

2022.01.20 02:44 Piercethedomino If *the side* of a pedestrian's femur got hit by a car going 8mph and it stopped RIGHT BEFORE the collision, what kind of injuries would they sustain?

For some confirmation:
- A pedestrian that was walking down a crosswalk collides with a car going 8mph down a residential. The bumper of the car comes into contact with their upper leg (this case, the femur), but the car stops like 2 seconds before the collision.
The injuries I want to know whether or not would happen in this case:
- torn knee ligaments
-hip/pelvis fracture
-Any abrasions

No this is not a math problem. I'm a writer and I can't find anything on this.

2022.01.20 02:44 KittyCat1023 Should I come off of Hormonal Birth Control?

Recently, as of December 18th 2020, I was married to the love of my life at the age of 18. While we were dating I was using the Implant and still am to make sure that I wouldn’t become pregnant before we were married as my parents are very religious. Now however I am wondering if I should go off of hormonal birth control. Originally I was put on birth control, because my periods were irregular and horrible. I would have a week to two week long periods with cramps that would make me have diaherra and puke. Along with other symptoms like bloating and bleeding through pads freakishly fast I desperate wanted my periods to stop. I tried a few different birth control methods until I found the one that stopped my period the Implant. Then as my boyfriend and I became sexually active the fact that the birth control was extremely effective set me on the fact that I would be using it for a while.
Now that becoming pregnant isn’t as much of an issue I am wondering if I should take the risk to be off of hormonal birth control to see if I can get regular periods. Part of me also wants to be off of hormonal birth control, because I do want to be pregnant. However I do know it’s not the greatest time. My husband and I are both in college and I know that we could raise a kid if we needed to in college, but it would be harder than not. A part of me desperately wants to have a baby and I have been like this ever since I had the implant inserted. I know it’s not a good time and I’m okay with waiting, but every time I think about it I want to cry. Do you think these extra hormones could be making way more emotional about this than I should be? Part of me wants to use non-hormonal ways so I have more of a chance of becoming pregnant, but I don’t want to do that to my husband as he doesn’t want a baby right now. A part of me also feels like I am not listening to want he wants if I go off of my birth control. I just don’t know what to do. What would you guys recommend?
