2021.12.06 13:52 mdegaris UK Buyers Beware!!!
You will be charged import fees when having a product delivered.
I ordered a Stellaris 17 laptop, which I customised to the value of approx. 2000 GBP.
About 3 days before delivery, I was asked to pay an unexpected 400 GBP import fees to UPS. 400 !!
This is obviously not Tuxedo's fault, but please do your research before making your purchase. Obviously I did't do enough, and this experience has left a bitter taste. In hindsight I should have dealt with UK-based company (e..g. Juno).
I'm sure the laptop itself will be great. But UK buyer's beware, you will end-up paying significantly more than you first think!

2021.12.06 13:52 Landraeus Ambrose Didn't Hire The Assassins
In the very nice Chapter 69 of NOTW, Kvothe is attacked by a pair of assassins whom we are explicitly led to believe were hired by Ambrose.
I believe we were led astray.
And not necessarily because Kvothe is an unreliable narrator, but because he was a fifteen-year-old boy leaping to nonsensical conclusions (totally out of character for him, right).
Here's the first bit of foreshadowing we have toward Ambrose being responsible for the assassination attempt:
>And, if I had to guess, I'd say this particular piece of insolence was the main reason Ambrose eventually tried to kill me. (NOTW Ch. 61)
What was the the insolence in question? Kvothe plastering his sarcastic apology letter for 'Jackass, Jackass' all over the university. Now as we all know, Ambrose is indeed a jackass, but are we really to believe that between all the back and forth one-upsmanship in their pranking, this was the point at which Ambrose decided, 'That's it. I'm murdering him.'
And let's not forget that Ambrose's most potentially dangerous move against Kvothe--hiring someone to administer plum bob to him before admissions--takes place *after* this assassination attempt he's allegedly responsible for. Now say what you want about all the catastrophic things Kvothe might've done under the influence of plum bob, I'm still going to rank that a tick below getting cold-blood murdered in a dark alley.
It simply doesn't fit the naturally escalating progression of their back-and-forth.
But that's just my first observation, and on it's own might not be enough to convince.
The other piece that has me truly convinced Ambrose did not hire the assassins comes from a key quote from the assassins themselves.
>We've lost him twice already. (NOTW Ch. 69)
If they've lost him twice already, it stands to figure they've been tracking him for some time, which adds more fuel to the notion that they were hired well before the Kvothe-Ambrose feud had reached murderous heights. I would grant that they could've lost him twice in a short span of time, if not for the very next line:
>I'm not having another cock-up like in Anilin. (NOTW Ch. 69)
And now we arrive at the crux of the theory. If these men were hired by Ambrose and given a strand of Kvothe's hair all while Kvothe was at the University, what could have possibly led them to Anilin in their search for him? We know that since arriving at the University he has only been at either the University, Imre, or the road between.
Now if these men were hired by someone else *before* Kvothe came to the university, what could have led them to Anilin in their search for him?
Well, now that's much easier to answer. Because Anilin is exactly where Roent's caravan was headed.
>You could come to Anilin with us. (Denna to Kvothe as he part with the caravan, NOTW Ch. 35)
It is with all those things in mind that I propose this: we not only have enough information to question if Ambrose hired the assassins, we can be almost certain that he did not.
We then, of course, have the natural follow-up question: if not Ambrose, then who?
While I am fairly confident Ambrose didn't hire the assassins, nailing down who did is most certainly a guessing game, but it is a fun one, and it is with that preface I will offer mine.
Whoever hired the assassins needed two things above all else: motive and mechanism. They wanted Kvothe dead and they had a strand of his hair for the dowsing compass.
There is at least one pre-University, pre-caravan-to-Anilin character we can be explicitly sure had motive and reasonably sure had the mechanism:
Motive is easy. Pike was a street urchin and ready to kill Kvothe just for his possessions, and that was *before* Kvothe set everything Pike owned and loved ablaze.
However, I think we still need a bit more to take this from a "If I see you, I'll kill you" vendetta to a "I will make it my life's purpose to track you and kill you" vendetta. Well, I think we have that hidden in plain sight. Don't forget Pat devotes an entire paragraph to describe Pike's possessions, and they weren't just food and clothes:
>Most surprising were several pieces of sailcloth with charcoal drawings of a woman's face ... hidden away behind everything else was a small wooden box that showed signs of much handling. It held a bundle of dried violets tied with a white ribbon, a toy horse that had lost most of its string mane, and a lock of curling blond hair. (NOTW Ch. 26)
Like so much of this series, these sentences take on a whole new meaning when isolated than when reading them in the context of the story. It's the thing I truly believe Pat is better at than any other living writer. To me it is clear that these are the remnants of Pike's childhood. And what is less clear but is my best guess is that the charcoal drawings are of his mother, and the lock of blond hair belongs to her as well. He's trying not to forget her.
Boy does this make Pike look like less of a dick and Kvothe more of one, huh.
Anyway, I believe Kvothe destroying those things forever is sufficient for a "I'll find and kill you" motive, not to mention, uh, Pike's literal words:
>As I pelted away he limped after me, shouting that he would kill me for what I'd done. (NOTW Ch. 26)
As stated before, Pike also needed a mechanism and we know from the attempted assassination scene that it was a strand of Kvothe's hair. As you may recall, Pike and Kvothe have a very physical skirmish after Pike finds him burning his stuff. Though it isn't explicitly stated, it's well within reason he came away with some of Kvothe's hair. The end.
TL;DR: Ambrose almost certainly did not hire the assassins that tried to jump Kvothe in NOTW. My best guess is it was Pike.

2021.12.06 13:52 theoneandonlyheather Why do my shoulders feel uncomfortably heavy like they are being pulled down?
I realised that my shoulders have always felt really heavy like they are being weighed down. When I stand up and walk around it is especially uncomfortable, but when I lay down on my back its like a relief. My posture isn't bad at all either so i'm not sure why it feels this way. 16f Shoulder width (38cm) height (5'4) weight (54kg) and I have vitamin D and iron deficiency.

2021.12.06 13:52 well_well_well_iykyk new to this!
Hello! I’m new to all this but I realized that i’m unable to pull back my foreskin and I ended up googling what might be causing this and came across this condition, phimosis. I’m currently 17 yo and this has been something that has always bothered me, not because i’ve felt any of the symptoms but because it feels weird not being able to pull back my foreskin (like they do in porn which i’ve always found weird that i’m not able to do). What should I do now? Are there any methods of curing this? This is possibly the best place to ask about this and i’d love to get some feedback!
Thanks in advance!
