2021.10.22 13:20 sir_unknowable An 80’s-style sci-fi action-adventure story idea I had: “Rockstamp”
On the planet Utopia 5, the Sandfighter resistance, led by Maximus X, is on the verge of losing the civil war against the Aquaforces, and prepares to evacuate the planet. An Aquaforce squad, led by KillerGhost, Lightwall, and Boldblast, intercepts them during the evacuation, and Maximus sends Sandfighter scout Rockstamp to Earth in an escape pod, in order to set up a base of operations where the Sandfighters can regroup.
Rockstamp reaches Earth and crash-lands in Middle America, disrupting a training exercise by The Cavalry, a secret government agency monitoring extraterrestrial activity on Earth. Colonel Sherman Bell presumes Rockstamp to be hostile and orders his men to attack. Rockstamp flees to a mine, where he is ambushed by Aquaforce footsoldier Stormburst. When Rockstamp refuses to reveal Maximus's whereabouts, Stormburst damages Rockstamp’s power core; yet Rockstamp destroys Stormburst with one of his own missiles. Rockstamp collapses from his injuries.
Meanwhile, teenager Remona "Remo" Wells finds what she thinks is a K-3 Hovertank (but is actually Rockstamp) in a scrapyard belonging to Rudy, who gives it to her as an 18th-birthday present. When trying to start it, Remo unknowingly activates a homing signal that is detected by Aquaforce Soldiers codename Nucleus and Mantelcore as they interrogate and slice down Hopper on one of Saturn's moons. The Aquaforces head to Earth where they, pretending to be peacekeepers, meet The Cavalry and persuade them to help capture Rockstamp, despite Bell's objections.
Remo attempts to fix Rockstamp, she unknowingly unlocks a message from Maximus urging Rockstamp to defend Earth, which restores some of his power core. They are discovered by Remo's neighbor Peter, who agrees to protect their secret, while Rockstamp synthesizes human language skills by flipping through TV channels. Left alone, Rockstamp unintentionally destroys Remo's home and causes an energy spike that attracts The Cavalry's attention. When Chase blames Remo for the havoc, Remo finally expresses her pain over her father's death and leaves with Rockstamp and Peter, only to be intercepted by The Cavalry and the Aquaforces. Rockstamp is captured while Remo and Peter are returning home.
Remo convinces her brother Gary to cover for her and Peter as they follow Bell to the The Cavalry outpost where Rockstamp is being held. Nucleus and Mantelcore activate the message from Maximus, learning that the Sandfighters are coming to Earth. They torture and leave Rockstamp for dead after revealing their plan to bring the rest of the Aquaforces to Earth. After alerting Bell to the truth about the Aquaforces, Dr. Thacker is killed by Mantelcore.
Remo electroshocks Rockstamp back to life, restoring his power core, causing him to fend off Bell's obstruction. After evading the military with the help of Peter and her family, Remo and Rockstamp pursue the Aquaforces who are seeking to contact Utopia 5 using a radio tower at a nearby harbor. Nucleus shoots down Bell's helicopter when he also tries to intervene, but he is saved by Rockstamp. Rockstamp binds Mantelcore with a chain, ripping him apart. Remo deactivates the Aquaforce beacon, only to be pursued by Nucleus. Rockstamp destroys a dam wall, triggering a flood that causes a cargo ship to crush and destroy Nucleus. Rockstamp and Remo escape the army and arrive on a cliff overlooking the wreckage, where Remo, realizing that Rockstamp has a greater purpose, says goodbye. Rockstamp flies off, and Remo reunites with her family and Peter.
Rockstamp reunites with Maximus, who praises Rockstamp for keeping Earth safe as they watch more Sandfighters arrive through Earth's atmosphere. Meanwhile, Remo finishes repairing the Mustang convertible she and her father were working on, and takes the classic vehicle for a drive.

2021.10.22 13:20 darnell_13 Candy Corn Purchase Question
Is the limit of 2 purchases of 50 candy corn a per day limit or a limit for the entire event? I am guessing it is for the whole event but want to make sure.
I am thinking I won’t get all the candy corn I need if I don’t do at least two purchases but plan on waiting until the end of the event so I don’t waste gems.

2021.10.22 13:20 Flaky_Active9876 How tough is it for a non-US IMG to match into Otolaryngology?
I'm starting med school here in my home country in a few months. I will probably start my USMLE journey after med school that is around after 5-6 years. I really want to go into either Anesthesiology or Otolaryngology (although, I know that I'm gonna have to explore much more specialities in med school). I have been told that as an IMG, all specialities are tough to get into. I have heard people getting matched into Anesthesia as IMG. Infact, a doctor from my home country matched into Johns Hopkins for Anesthesia in 2020. I learned that Anesthesia is indeed tough but not impossible. I also found a lot of IMG matching into other not so IMG friendly specialities as well like General Surgery, Radiology. But I haven't found anything on the internet regarding IMG getting matched into ENT. Since ENT is consistently ranked in the top 5 most competitive specialities, how tough is it for an IMG to get a match? Is it extremely tough or is it something that is next to impossible???

2021.10.22 13:20 hahainternet Warranty Requests for lights stuck in Factory Test
One of my lights has (after turning off the power strip it is connected to) become stuck in factory test mode.
However the warranty form link is broken, and the 'new' warranty form explicitly states LIFX will not honour anything after 2 years.
I talked to Amazon who also (against UK law) refuse to discuss products after 2 years.
Will LIFX reject this request? Does LIFX acknowledge this is a design flaw in their product? It's obvious from the inconsistent behaviour and associated wifi failure this is a hardware issue. Yet I have not seen this acknowledged anywhere.
Am I SOL?

2021.10.22 13:20 panth13 Her  ex reached out and now she doesn’t think her and I  should rush into anything. Need advice.
Went on three of the best dates I’ve ever had with this girl over the past 2 weeks. After our last one, she was still texting me all the time then things suddenly changed before our next meet up (canceled saying she was sick which I believed because she mentioned her not feeling well the morning of the date prior but thought she was over it). After that she just seemed different over text. I told her the vibe seemed different compared to a few days ago and to let me know if anything has changed going forward. She told me her ex reached out and she claims she isn’t going to go running back to him but she doesn’t think it’s smart for her to rush into anything.
I told her it doesn’t surprise me that he reached out because she’s super cool. I told her I agree it’s not best to rush into something if she is dealing with that and I only hope she makes the best decision for her. I also told her I hope to hear from her down the line but if not I wish her the best.
Was this the best way to handle it or is there anything else I can do? I assume giving her space is the best course of action or should I just give up and move on. Really just went head over heals for her pretty quick so definitely sucked to hear.
Thanks ahead of time.
