I’m potentially about to become a new USP 45 owner. I run lights on all my other weapons so I’m hoping to do the same with this… what adapters do y’all recommend for doing this? Some light googling as yielded me GG&G and Surefire (seems out of production?).
I’m thinking about running a Surefire x300U.
Thanks all! -A

2022.01.17 15:26 Guilty_Resident9714 Attack on Titan's ending fails because Isayama wanted a story that could be solved by forgiveness, depsite that being completely contrary to the context of the story itself.
Attack On Titan's ending is worst in more ways than you think.
The simple reason why Attack on Titan's ending fails is because it attempts to introduce apologies and forgiveness as a solution, when the world's setting itself would never realistically allow for it. The stakes are simply to high, and the the grievances between Marley, the world, and Paradis itself are subplated by justifiable instances of hatred. Let's start off by examining what set a precedent for the world of Attack On Titan: Cannibalism, Slavery, genocide, Imperialism, and war-crimes. Suffice it to say, Attack on Titan history is very grim, much like our. And much like our, apologies and forgiveness are only stringent solutions that work to recieve some level of retribution, but they rarely are sufficient. For example, the construction of the Eldian Empire. The Eldian Empire came into power by way of a Slave, not wife that "still loved" king fritz, named Ymir Fritz becoming the first titan shifter and being used as a biological weapon. And upon this newly discovered weapon, King fritz employed her efficiently and effectively to expand the Eldian Empire.
And unsurprisingly, when a Empire seeks to expands it's territory, numerous long lasting atrocities are committed: Rape to proliferate the Eldian population, cultures being annihilated as they are deemed inferior, slavery to increase country's production, and even more. But what's really hilarious and saddening, that unlike real world Empires that barely last a century or two, Eldia remained in power for two- thousand years.
This isn't a simple case of racism that Isayama's narrative continually seeks to indoctrinate his fans with, where the only difference is the amount of melanin in someone's skin, or any other superficial differences more. The story's conflict lies in the fact of an now decrepit Empire commiting heinous astrocities against the world and the world's reaction to it. Not to mention, the biological fact of Eldian having the ability to transform into cannibalistic creatures that range from 3 meters to 15 meters. But it's not to say in no way Marley is innocent, which I'll be extrapolating upon in due time.
For example, to give credence to my point that utilizing genocide in your story to comment on socio political issues and then having a simple bout of "negotiations" to solve said greviances brought about by said genocide is narrow minded and stupid. Let's examine a ironic real life comparison to Eldia and Marley: WW2 Japan. Depsite the narrative that's been proliferated by the Japanese government, that Japan is a victim due to Nagasaki and Hiroshima, the precedent is the complete opposite. WARNING. I want to be frank as possible to correctly translate my point. So upon that, I'll be utilizing real pictures of WW2 Japan and their crimes to further illustrate my point. As with warcrimes and human rights violation– it's graphic. You have been warned. The first documented instance of Japanese warcrimes was in which the Japanese armies invaded China's northern provinces and quickly captured the ancient Chinese capital Peking (now called Beijing). In the conduct of this war, the Japanese adopted a policy of deliberate savagery in the expectation that it would break the will of the Chinese to resist. Although poorly trained and equipped, the Chinese army and communist irregulars put up strong resistance to Japan's armies which enjoyed overwhelming superiority in numbers, training, and weapons. The Japanese troops responded to Chinese resistance to their invasion by embarking on an orgy of murder, rape, and looting that shocked the civilised world at that time.
They literally created an dehumanizing game of who could decapitate the most heads off of civilians, who could bayonett the most babies, and who could rape the most women. Another prime example of the most heinous atrocity commited by WW2 Japan: Unit 731. Unit 731 eventually grew into an assembly line for weaponized diseases that, if fully deployed, could have killed everyone on Earth several times over. All this “progress” was, of course, built on the limitless suffering of human prisoners, who were held as test subjects and walking disease incubators until Unit 731 disbanded at the end of the war.
In a long list of atrocities, these six programs, in particular, stand out in the bloody history of Unit 731: Frostbite, Vivisection of conscious prisoners( including babies and pregnant women, weapon testing, syphilis experiments, and Germ warfare. An example of the absolute horror of Unit 731 lies is emulated by the one experiment in involving a mother and her child. The experiment's goal was to determined which instinct was more prevalent in women: motherly instinct or survival instinct. They tested this by gradually raising the heat of the metal floor in which the mother and child stood upon to confirm wether the mom would sacrifice her own feet or literally step upon her blistering child due to self preservation. And these supposed "experiments" were done for the purpose to proliferate Japan's biological weapons research. That's how cruel countries and Empires can be when they're trying to expand their power. So even if you were to dismiss the astrocities commited by Japan, their relatively short encroachment upon the world before and during WW2 lasted for 6-14 years and still resulted in 20 million deaths compared to the 2,000 year rule of Eldia. Now imagine the scale of astrocities that Eldia commited in the 2,000 year time period it ruled the world.
"But that's Marleyean propaganda!" It's not. We don't even require actual incidents of genocide, colonization, slavery, mass rape, and etc to confirm what Eldia did to be displayed. Isayama didn't even have to show us. We simply can conclude from King's Fritz own mouth what the Eldian Empire actions were and what it's expanse entailed for the World. "...My titans shall rule the world for enternity, so long as this world of mine remains." focus on the phrase "...world of mine..." as in his property that no one can encroach upon. Gee, guys. That's sure sounds like he's gonna expand his rule with no astrocities commited at all. To finally subplate the precedent that Marley, to the dismay of many fans, was in fact telling the truth of the Eldia Empire history here's some actual panels of their history. http://imgur.com/gallery/pFf6cuL http://imgur.com/a/9lHzCd1. It genuinely makes me laugh that an inumerable amount of fans continue to ask "WHy DiDnt the WoRlD forgive Eldians and continue the cycle of hatred?" Sure, man. I bet if your town was wiped out by titans and your mother or sister was consripted to be a sex slave in front of you, you too would be so enticed with the Steven Universe equivalent of love and acceptance.
To quickly wrap it up let's continue on to Marley. Marley serves in more than anything it is a cautionary tale victims become of the oppressors. Having once been slaves and victims to the Eldian Empire - with no ways of fighting back due to the Titan powers of the Eldians, Marley eventually broke free by initiating the Great Titan War in which they managed to steal seven of the nine titan shifters from Eldia. With the 145th Eldian King - who felt that Marley was in the right due to the cruel ways they were treated by the Eldians - not interfering and instead bringing his people to the island Paradis, where he planned to keep his people until Marley decided to annihilate them all, Marley were able to become a dominant power on the mainland. They also swiftly started rounding up any reminding Eldians in their territory and imprisoning them in ghettos. Overtime, due to viewing the Eldians as nothing but devils, the Marleyans ended up becoming just as bad as their former oppressor. Consripting child soldiers to be used as nothing more as biological weapons indoctrinated by the belief that they and all Eldians are devils, building internment camps, all in the goal of amassing their own empire.
The alliance is a failure because it's Isayama trying to use the characters of the alliance as vectors to say: Genocide is bad. As if everyone didn't already know that. Isayama presents a world that was built upon cannibalism, rape, mass rape, genocide, and imperialism. And even more egregiously, orchestates the narrative in which two opposing sides have legitimate proven reasons for hating each other( the world/ Marley and Eldains), not "racism". And then further orchestrates the main conflict in which the security of one faction can only be achieved by the complete annihilation of the other. He wants to write a story in which genocide is bad and everyone thing can be forgiven, but then presents genocide as an actual solution given the circumstances of the story in which, he again, wrote in the first place? Forgive and forget is only applicable to small inconveniences, not to genocide, rape, torture, mass murder, and etc. Why do Authors continually do this? They write characters or countries speedrunning war crimes and yet want a happy ending in which all is forgiven and we sang together? It's annoying and immature.
Which leads to any character that's presented as the peace maker in these stories to becoming easily hated because it doesn't make them look mature, tempered, and understanding but hippy loving morons that can't grasp that apologies don't work. The fact that Armin was more upset Eren for causing Mikasa to cry than the fact he wiped out 80% of the world results in him being presented as a moron, not the intelligent understanding man we've known.
Last but not certainly least, the fan base. The effects this whole genocide conundrum has had on fanbase is disgusting and the epitome of edgelordiness. For instance, there was a thread on titanfolk in which a dumbass "Yeagerist" was saying "If i had to kill my dog to save a family, I'll just send them flowers." The thread continued to devolve into people arguing that they'll save their pet over literal babies. Threads like these have not been the first nor the last to pop up on the feed of titan folk.
This series is ruined. End of story.

Would a short stint at Amazon (as a contractor) look bad on my CV or would it be easier to land a better job simply because of the name on my resume, however brief the experience? I'm looking to enter the AI/ML/NLP space and need to start somewhere (despite their reputation, plus they're seemingly on a hiring spree (I could jump before they PIP me)).

2022.01.17 15:26 throwawayy4328584 So embarrassed after pooping pants at school
Im 16F / Y11 and from UK I suddenly had to go really bad around 4th lesson (out of 6) to the point it was like poking out and I couldn’t hold it any longer. I asked to go to the toilet and my teacher said yes and I was walking there but I just couldn’t hold it and completely shit myself and it was so embarrassing I just froze and had no idea what to do, never been so mortified in my life. Then i was walking really weird trying to go to the toilets and some fell onto the floor from my skirt and i’m so scared someone knows it was me. It was like in the corridor just before I got to the toilets and there’s cameras so the teachers are gonna know it’s me i’m so embarrassed. Luckily there was only 1 other girl in the toilets and she left as soon as i got in the stall. Then i cleaned up as much as I could even tho I still smelled horrible and didn’t have spare underwear so i just cleaned them in the sink and wore them (disgusting but i was panicking + have anxiety and didn’t want anyone to find my shitty clothes) Then i went back to lesson and sat there for another 2 lessons before going home and now i’m overthinking so bad.
Do I have something wrong with me ?(didn’t need to go until I was the most desperate i’ve ever been, i’ve never shit at school before either) Will people know I was the one that shit themself? What if teachers ask me bc of the cameras? What’s a good excuse to miss school all week (not covid because i just had it last week).
Sorry for such a long post i’m just mortified and embarrassed and so scared someone will find out it was me

2022.01.17 15:26 Doom_Kaiser Important questions about the A+ cert and Linux+ cert
Hello fellow redditors! I am planning on taking both the A+ cert, and the Linux+ cert in the next few months as part of a college class, and just had a few questions about them. Any information would be genuinely appreciated!
For reference, I did study for and manage to pass my Security+ exam when I took it, so I would probably be comparing these two against that one in particular. I did use Professor Messer, and Jason Dion as my study material which seemed to work fairly well for me. Because of that, I do see myself using them again.

Currently have an taxation internship that busy season is coming up. I have a dislocated foot and I felt pretty uneasy to balance school, work and rehab. It has only been 3 weeks into the internship and the first two weeks like training. Personally felt morally guilty to quit as the employees have been really nice to me. What should I do?
