My parents think they’re solving my reading problem but they’re only making the problem worse

2022.01.22 02:29 MCKlassik My parents think they’re solving my reading problem but they’re only making the problem worse

Don’t get me wrong, I used to be a bookworm as a kid. I would often finish 2-3 books in a week and I would find reading fun and exciting. But then middle school happened.
In my English classes, I would always have to do assignments where I have to over-analyze books. This really took the fun out of reading for me. I felt forced to read solely because of getting a grade and not for my enjoyment anymore. This type of mentality occurred in my high school English classes. Teacher gives me a book, read it by force, do the assignment, get a good grade, never touch the book again, rinse and repeat.
Outside of school, every time I touch a book, I would get PTSD from my English classes and my brain would want to over-analyze it. It took me a year just to finish one book.
Now that I’m about to graduate high school, I want to bring my love for reading back. I talked to my parents about it and they said that they would help me out. They’re not helping at all! Rather then encouraging me to read on my own time, they’re forcing me to read every day by threatening to take all my stuff if I don’t do it.
Like, my problem with reading came from adults forcing me to do it. The forcing problem can’t be solved with more force, it’ll only intensify it and my parents CLEARLY don’t understand! The problem can be solved with encouragement and trusting me to read on my own time. Without anyone telling me to do it.

2022.01.22 02:29 theironanvil1 How to outsmart a Skinwalker

If you’re reading this, congratulations, I am probably dead, or worse… My name is Daniel, and I own quite a bit of land up in the Appalachian mountains left to me by my great aunt. So far in the years I’ve lived here, paranormal and downright disturbing things have happened to me here. People’s told me to just leave or report it… like I’ve never done that before. To them I’m just the “young guy that went crazy a little too early.” It distraught’s me that normal people have no idea what goes on up here… all alone. My first encounter with… them, I didn’t know how to deal with them… heck I didn’t even know what they were called until recently. It’s important, or at least it’s important to me that some of the tricks I’ve learned throughout the three years I’ve lived up here could be of use to somebody.
My second… or maybe third time I was stalked by a Skinwalker, it felt like I was walking in circles. I had a trail camera with an SD card pretty deep in the woods. But when I tried to walk to my cabin, I kept passing the camera, I was effectively walking in circles. This went on for hours, the sun was setting soon and I was quite thirsty at the time I remember. I sat up against the tree my camera was mounted on and started softly crying. It was watching me. I guess waiting for me to fall dead. I hit myself in desperation a few times, trying to think. I sat up and took a very deep breath, wiped the water from my eyes, and it dawned on me. It’s gotta be messing with my equilibrium. I have to be off balance there’s no other way, teleportation in hindsight sounded stupid. But I could still walk but my depth perception was slightly off. All I had to do, was tilt my head as far as it would go into my shoulder, and walk back to my cabin. My ear was pressed into my shoulder but even with one ear I could still hear how anxious the creature sounded pacing in the woods. Once I made it inside my cabin, I didn’t come out for a couple days, for safe measures.
Another trick they know is mimicking animals. I’ve found that they like coyotes. I used to coyote hunt quite a bit back home but never up here in the mountains. I seen on a couple of my deer cameras that it looked like right after I left my camera, a coyote, would walk pass the camera and follow me a while, if not all the way home. I had to stop that real quick, and set out some snares. All a snare would and could do is jam the coyotes leg into the mechanism until a button is pressed and the thing would unlock. I set out a couple of them, but also, rubbed white ash on all of the traps, and sure enough the next time I start walking back from my camera, I hear the sound of one go off. I quickly ran back to where I had laid the traps gun drawn and all that was left was the trap in 3 separate bent up pieces and the subtle scent of burning hair was in the air. Every time I checked the camera after that, a coyote with a nasty burn scar on its leg would stop where the camera was mounted and turn around and walk back into the brush.
And lastly, do not engage in any type of combat with them. Warding them off is one thing but actively hunting them is a mistake. I’d wish I would’ve know that sooner. I had 2 buddies back in town I used to tell my stories to. Alcohol loosens the lips. Their names were, James, and Cole. I’m pretty sure they were cousins but I never asked, thinking about it now I wish I would’ve gotten to known them better. Long story short, they’re dead, and I’m dying. This morning they came and pounded in my door insisting we hunt these Skinwalkers, I told them it was a very bad idea, but they even took the liberty of buying silver bullets. They told me how much they cost but I can’t remember right now. I finally caved and we prepared all day, making a large amount of white ash, cleaning our guns, heck, they even packed MRE’s and special high dollar spotlights. We set off right as the sun went down… we weren’t 3 hours in when disaster struck, we’re all sitting around a tree. I could tell these Skinwalkers were watching us. They’re all around us. Multiple. I’m frantically scanning everything with my spotlight not even realizing Cole wasn’t with us anymore. I yelled at James asked were he was but he didn’t seem nervous at all and told me he may of had to pee. I turn back to face my front and there I see Cole. He’s a good distance out but something wasn’t right. He was contorting in ways a human could never. I start to turn around to ask James what we should do but halfway around, I head James guttural sounding breathing, like his lungs were fulling with blood. I couldn’t stand to be there anymore and booked it back to the cabin. The forest seemed like it was laughing at me, in my desperation to run home. I knocked my flashlight running and it was slowing getting dimmer and dimmer. I eventually had to ditch it and use some of the flares Cole and James bought. I pulled the top off and struck it against a tree and the red flame lit up the surrounding forest. There were so many of them. 10? 20? Probably more, but as luck would have it, they never attacked me. I could see the cabin and flung the door open and shut it behind me. I ran for the upstairs bedroom and quickly got into the old wooden closet, where I am typing this. I don’t hear them but they’re outside my house. Unfortunately, I did end up getting clawed, or maybe bitten. It’s not a terrible wound but it’s bleeding black. If you can send help. Please do. I really need it this time.

2022.01.22 02:29 xDIMITRI28x Breathing help during dmt trip & the difference between white and yellow powder.

I’m just wondering if anyone else has problems breathing during a dmt trip. Like it feels you’re gasping for air or sum. Is there something I could do do calm that? & I’ve done yellow dmt and it was super vivid and colorful and visual & I recently did some pure white dmt (all extracted myself) & the trip just wasn’t very vivid at all. I did more white then I yellow too. Any1 else did yellow and white and had diff experiences?

2022.01.22 02:29 red_shrike [Q] - Proper sample set for determining metrics and patterns

I work in cybersecurity where risk should be calculated with probability as a determining factor. If a threat has near zero probability of being applicable, then probability (and thus risk) should be infinitesimal.
Risk = (threat x vulnerability) / Probability.
The problem is most security folks see hypothetical threats as probable threats without any statistics to back it up. "I saw someone on YouTube hack a voting machine in a controlled environment, so now we should spend $$$$$ to further secure these machines, else assume they're compromised!"
My question is - how large of a sample set should be required in order to take it into consideration as a factor in an algorithm calculating risk? If there's no known examples of a threat being exploited, then how can risk be calculated?
I took statistics years ago and remember that sample sets need to have a minimum threshold of data points in order for it to be properly calculated.
Does this make sense? Am I in the right group for this?
