2022.01.23 08:30 Phileas--Fogg Recommend me films with unlikeable characters we can't help but love!
I'm a writer but look to films to (quickly) teach me how a story works. I've written a superunlikeable protagonist whose morally bankrupt-- but we all know that's not the main problem, everyone loves an antihero/ morally grey character-- but he's so horrible people want to stop reading.
Any examples of unlikeable but loveable characters in film that can show me how it's done or any tips?

2022.01.23 08:30 no7hink Control shouldn’t be the « casual » playlist.
I get that it’s supposed to be a space where new player can « participate » but, as someone who adore Control and play it everyday (top 4% according to Destiny Tracker), let me tell you this harsh truth : 90% of the people playing Control have absolutely no idea of what they are doing.
They don’t know what what holding points does, they don’t know what power play does, they don’t know why a spawn swap happen let alone the concept of anchoring to avoid it. They just want to shoot stuff and I don’t blame them for that.
That said those people makes real Control players life miserable. Combined with the god awfull lobby balancing introduced since 30th anniversary and the increase spawn timer (who though a single second it would be a good idea ?), I can predict with 100% accuracy how a game will unfold in in the first 30 seconds just by looking at my team comportement around control points.
Make Clash the main casual playlist as it should be (with a freelance SBMM option for new players to pactise) and move Control to the side so that people who really enjoy the game mode can have decent games.

2022.01.23 08:30 Lortekonto The danish golden age
Different countries have different golden ages. Victoria III starts in the middle of the danish golden age. I have written this, because the 1836’s Denmark is interesting, being both one of the most progressive countries in Europe, while also having one of if not the most absolute ruler. To understand why there is a golden age, we first need to talk about agriculture reforms. A talk about agriculture reforms is a talk about Frederik IV and to talk about Frederik VI we need to talk about Christian VII.
Before that though I have to point out that I am not a historian. I have omitted details, both to save time on the post and to build a kind of narrative.
The Mad King and enlightenment reforms
Christian VII became the absolute monarch of Denmark at the age of 17 in 1766. The young king had several severe mental health problems and while he in theory was the absolute ruler of the realm, in practice he was controlled by the nobles in his council.
During an international travel he meet Johan Struensee. Struensee was a trained physician, well educated and a firm believer in the ideals of the enlightenment. Struensee had a good relation to the king and seemed to be able to handle his mental health issues well, so he became his personal physician.
Over a few years Struensee was able to get the king's trust, disband the council that was controlling the king and instead put himself in charge of the country. Together with a small group of radical progresive Struensee reformed the hell out of Denmark like only a well educated man with unlimited power and no fear of backlash could do it. The bureaucracy was simplified. Ineffective nobles were fired from their positions and the government was made into a meritocracy. Much of Denmark was reorganised in a way that made it simpler for the central government to rule and control the country. On top of that the army was reorganised. The nobility lost many of their privileges. Freedom of press was introduced and then limited. Educational reforms. Healthcare reforms. Poverty reforms. Tarif reforms. Police reforms, limiting the power of the police In the span of a year and a half Struensee and his small group of enlightened friends made more than two thousand cabinet orders.
Such a quick and radical change in the society ensured that Struensee had enemies absolutely everywhere. From the nobility and clergy to farmers and workers. On top of all of this Struensee started having a romantic relationship with the queen. In early 1772, Struensee was removed from power through a coup. He was tried and executed. Many of his reforms were rolled back. Especially those that had limited the power of the nobility, but most of his government reforms, simplified bureaucracy, educational, healthcare and poverty reforms were there to stay. The press was also limited a bit more, but it was still a lot more free than it had been before Struensee. There is a whole movie about Struensee though it focuses more on the romance and less on the reform parts.
Radical Reforms 1.2 electric boogaloo
Just 12 year latter Frederik VI, the first born son of Christian VII, was 16 years old and declared of legal majority. He then decided to coup the coupers. He would rule as prince regent until the dead of his father in 1808 and then as king for another 31 year.
Thanks to Strueseens reforms Frederik VI could rule one of the most centralised countries in Europe with absolute power and he is normally counted as one of the 20 or so Enlightened Absolute Monarchs.
One of the most important things Frederik VI did was introducing farming reforms. Many farming reforms. From 1786 to 1816 there was a big Farming Commision, which mostly introduced different farming reforms.
Before the reforms danish farming was hopeless old school. The majority of farming land was owned by peasants, but it was common property of the individual villages. Denmark did not traditionally have serfdom, but had introduced their own version of it fifty years before and peasants had to work a certain amount for the local nobility.
The farming commision abolished serfdom, restricted the power of the nobility, removed many of the peasant duties and introduced individual property rights. At first this gave Frederik VI many enemies within the nobility and big land owners, but that changed as production soared and nobles were able to earn more and more money by renting their land to Free Farmers. Free Farmers being the name of the new middle class that sprung up at the country side. When the game starts subsistence farming is almost erradicated.
While this went on other commisions were reforming other parts of society. The first teacher seminarium oppened in 1791 with the aim to educate the many new teachers that would soon be needed. In 1814 the commision introduced 6 years of compulsory education for all. Thousand of schools were build, because no child was allowed to have more than 2 kilometer to school.
The first vaccine program was introduced in 1803, against smallpox. Smallpox vaccination was made compulsory in 1810. Jews were granted full citizenship in 1814. Slave trade made illegal in 1792, woth the law taking full effect in 1803.
The last of Frederik VI importent reforms was the sound toll. All trade to and from the baltic sea had to go through danish waters and toll was put on it. During this periode around ⅓ of the governments revenue came from this toll. Relative late in his rule Frederik V realised that the toll was actuelly harming danish economy, since it for many traders was faster and cheaper to move their gods over land south for Denmark. It also harmed danish traders a lot since they were moving gods through danish waters the most. So more inspectors were hired and the toll was reduced.
When it came to his own personal rule Frederik VI was not a progresive reformer. On the contrary. He actually reduced the free speech even more. But in the end he was forced to bring more democracy to his people. Denmark had kind of being forced to ally with France during the Napoleonic Wars, because the brits had attacked Denmark and firebombed Copenhagen.
With the end of the war Denmark was forced to give up Norway to Sweden and introduce Estates Assembly. The estates would assemble in each danish region every second year to discuss politics and advice the king on reforms. Their role were only advisorial, but since 25% of the population could vote for who would represent them in the Assembly it was the first reason the population had to argue politics.
When the game starts in 1836 the second round of assemblies are to be held. The king have reigned for 47 years and is no longer the big reformer as he was in his youth. He have slowly stepped back and allowed the official apparatus to run most of the country. He is well loved by most of the country and public known as Frederik Eiegode(Frederik the Good). Celebrated as the saviour of the kingdom when he returned from the Congress of Vienna. Norway had been lost, but most people had feared a complete dissolution of Denmark. He was still remembered for bringing prosperity to the countryside, freedom to the peasants and education and enlightenment to the entire people. In reality he would die 71 years old in 1839.
A long time ago you were promised a golden age. A danish golden age. So what does that actually mean? Well the danish golden age is an age of incredible high production of arts in Denmark. The focus is on the national unique characteristics and involves, but are not limited to litteratur, music, songs, paintings, sculptures, theater, science and architecture.
It was properly a combination of many reasons as to why the golden age comes around. The growing middle class and levels of litteracy. More people moving to the cities. Construction of the royal academy for arts. But not least the anti-Struensee law of 1764. Remember that Struensee had been german, so a law was passed that made it illegal for people not born danish to hold the highest public positions. Until this point in time the leaders of the different cultural institutions had often been german, france or dutch, but from that point on they would all be danish, which meant that for the first time ever danish cultural institutions took a look at danish culture.
So who are these golden age people and what have they really made?
You properly know H. C. Andersen and his fairy tales. He will publish the Little Mermaid in 1837.
The philosopher Søren Kierkegaard is still studying. He will graduate in 1841.
Bertel Thorvaldsen. A sculptor and medalist. Only non-italien to make a grave memorial for a pope in St. Peter’s Basilica. He made the Lion monument Which Mark Twain called.
the most mournful and moving piece of stone in the world.He returned to Denmark in 1838 as a hero. Frederik VI ordered a museum build to him, which was build by the famous architect Bindsbølle, who is most famous for buildings Thorvaldsens museum.

2022.01.23 08:30 ikilledthemusic Jeff the annoying demon…
So, I took two gummies with the guy I’m dating and we were watching Paranormal Activity 3 when they kicked in. It hit me that the name of the demon is Toby and I thought that was a ready dumbass name for a demon and I said whatever happened to names like Jezebel? Anyway, that got me on a tangent about a bunch a poltergeist and demons with real plain ass names and I started busting up laughing and said, “Like what if there’s a demon named Jeff and he doesn’t really do any harm or anything he just is really fucking annoying by going around pouring everyone tea? Sure at first it would be chill, but after a while it’s like Jeffrey you need to get the fuck out of here with you fucking tea or we’re gonna get your ass exercised.”
In conclusion, I might still be high cause this shit is still really ducking funny to me.

For players that play all one Dynasty I can imagine this changes very little bit for those that take the Silent King and other Dynasties, I can imagine this limits the army building quite a bit.

2022.01.23 08:30 my_irlthrowaway Can people with BPD initiate a breakup? What’s it look like?
I had a partner who I suspected was BPD, and discussed it with my psych. I remember telling my psych that my partner just kind of left the relationship hanging, to which my psych answered…
“If she has BPD, that’s because she can’t break up.”I just wondered if this is true, that people with BPD can’t initiate breaks/breakups because of the triggering emotions that causes. Or if this was just misleading and there’s a lot of way this manifests when it’s time to move on.
