2022.01.23 06:15 Appropriate-Life7945 My bizarre experience with "miracles" and OCD
Title says all. I guess this is a testimony, of sorts, although I truly don't know what to think of it. I'm always struggling with my faith, but it seems like everyone is these days.
When I was 17, I developed severe OCD. This isn't like cleaning stuff OCD, I became obsessed with thinking about deep, philosophical topics--I wondered if life or anything could truly have any real meaning, I wondered if I had free will, and I wondered if I was in a simulation. The latter was particularly distressing to me. I ruminated about these topics day and night, obsessively thought about them and almost nothing else. I couldn't get my brain to stop. The questions were so horrifying to me they cast me into a very dark depression. I attempted suicide--twice. I had to see a therapist and be put on medication (which caused more problems, but that's another story).
I just wanted the world to "make sense"--and feel certain of it. I'd circle constantly through logical arguments in my mind along with obsessive paranoia. I will never wish OCD upon anyone. Ever.
I developed this one particular obsession with testing God--which I knew was a sin, but I did it anyway. I wanted God to show himself to me, to prove to me beyond a shadow of doubt that he was real, so I could put all my existential dread away for good. Being the absolute madlad I was, I said to God, "If this particular song plays on shuffle on my iPod, God isn't real and I live in a simulation."
That particular song ended up playing. Not only that, when I tried testing God later (I said, "If I get 62 coins in Temple Run, God isn't real." Guess what happened), the same thing happened. These little "un-miracles" happened five times in a row. I panicked. I really did think I was in a simulation.
I feel absolutely insane writing these things.
It started to dawn on me, however, that I had been committing a sin--testing God. In a way, it made sense that those "un-miracles" happened. Why should God aid me in my sin? Why should God grant me reassurance, when reassurance made OCD worse?
Flash forward to a couple months, where I'm volunteering at a Christian summer camp. The staff was taught a sermon about Hebrews 11:1 "Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see." Later that night, a good friend of mine--let's call him Joe--shared his testimony.
Joe was a cabin leader, meaning he led a small group of kids through all the camp's activities throughout the day. Towards the end of the week, he was talking with the kids one-on-one about their faith and whatnot. They were talking outside during a stormy night, thunder and lightning, getting absolutely soaked by the rain. But then they noticed something odd--whenever they spoke about God, the rain would stop. Just deadass stop. Whenever they would talk about something else, it would continue to rain. This happened with the other three kids he spoke with as well. Sometimes, they'd see the sky fill with tremendous but silent lightning. It was a pretty crazy story--but I knew Joe well enough to know that he was honest, he wasn't someone to tell tall tales. The four kids he spoke with also could testify to what happened. His testimony gave me hope--that perhaps, there was a God, that did still interact with the world.
The craziest thing that happened was when I was walking back to my cabin with a fellow volunteer, Kyle. We were discussing Joe's testimony and we decided to stargaze for a bit. It was a clear night out in the countryside, and there was so little light pollution you could see the outline of the Milky Way, which I didn't think was possible--it was beautiful. We talked about how big the universe was and how Just then, Kyle said, "Did you see that? There was lightning over there!" Kyle described all this lightning he just saw, spider-like tendrils emerging from a clear sky. I didn't see what he was seeing, but he swore by what he saw. And I have no reason to believe he's lying.
It took me awhile, but I came to a conclusion about my experiences--I was meant to have faith. I had to trust without certainty, without reassurance--but rather in testimony, the testimony of my friends, who I knew were truthful. I had to learn to be okay with trusting a God I couldn't always understand or see. It was faith I needed, not sight.
Flash forward to now, I'm 23. I still wrestle with my faith, and I definitely wrestle with my OCD still. I still get paranoid, I still have obsessive thoughts, but I'm getting better at managing them. They don't hold the same weigh they used to. I still consider myself a Christian, but there's a lot about the Bible I don't understand--the confusing theology; the back-and-forth debate about free will and salvation; the stuff in Leviticus about putting homosexuals to death; the genocide of the Canaanites...it's still a very troubling book for me. But I can't really deny my experience either, which is why I still believe. I still believe, at the very least, that there's Something out there.
I know my testimony sounds insane. I understand if you don't believe it. But I would love to hear your honest reactions and thoughts. Thank you for reading.

2022.01.23 06:15 bookgirl1196 Late night fun
I had a last minute reservation come through tonight around 1215 from hometomorrow. No biggie, I don't run audit until 3 if I have an arrival left. The woman comes to check in shortly after and doesn't have a credit card for incidentals. No problem, she says she'll be back with her boyfriend to check in later and asks what the latest time they can check in is.
They arrive back at the hotel at 245, I ask for ID and card. He asks if we take apple pay. No. Goes outside, stands outside the door for a few minutes, then texts the gf to let him back in. Weird but what ever. I ask for his ID as well. "But my picture is on the card". Sorry I need a government issued ID. Goes back outside to try to find it. GF starts asking if I "hassle" everyone like this or if it's just them because they are black. I tell her I follow policy which is to get a government issued ID that matches the name on the card.
She continually speaks over me and will not accept my answer. Finally I tell her if she continues I'll just cancel the reservation, because at this point I'm over it, and she can find other accommodations. Again throws out the race card nd that she is not being "and aggressive black woman". I straight up tell her that that is not what I'm saying, and that she is arguing with me about policy.
FINALLY dude calls to be let in again. No ID but he has a picture of it! No can do, I need it physically in front of me. They ask about a refund, I tell them they'll have to go through the OTA they booked through.
Why does it always surprise people when I need an ID that matches the person and the credit card? Or that I need a credit card on file for incidentals?
Sorry for the lengthy post!

It's not like I fully understand who I am, but I understood my path, what I was aiming for and who I had become from my past self. But I don't know anymore, everything feels like it's too important and nothing is, like I have friends but I'm all alone, and I don't know why, but I think all of the time, about thousands of things. My head is filled up, and I can't drown the noise. I feel useless, weak, with no purpose in life, I don't know if someone actually reads this, but yeah, I don't know

2022.01.23 06:15 Smash_Factor Something definitely seems wrong at Stake
I've been watching Tyler's Stake sessions for over a year now. He plays a wide range of games with high volatility. Even the games that claim to have a low volatility are still very volatile. But the level of volatility that we witness during his streams seems far beyond a reasonable amount and certainly much more than any other streamer in the slots category.
Here is the definition of volatility when it comes to slots:
Low Volatility: Frequent, small wins (Like Book Of Shadows) with the occasional, moderate sized jackpot.
High Volatility: Long periods of losses (Like "Wanted Dead or a Wild") sprinkled with occasional small wins and the long-shot possibility of a massive jackpot.
See how it works? Low volatility means lots of small wins and an occasional nice hit. High volatility is long periods of losing with the possibility of a massive jackpot lingering somewhere in the future.
When we gamble, we know that there's going to long periods of losses regardless of what games we are playing. There's also going to be short periods of wins. But the extent of Tyler's loss streaks are so long that there's only one way to explain it: he is indeed being cheated.
It seems that Tyler has no issue handling these massive losses, even psychologically. Still, IMO he has been far too loyal to Stake. To me I don't see any reason why he should not look to another casino. There is nothing really special about Stake at all other than their super quick deposit and withdraw system.
In my life, I've never seen slot machines that function like these online machines. I've never seen a machine that generates the win ahead of time, and then spits out the reel results to make it possible. Machines of this nature aren't even legal in Nevada. My dad told me that he found machines like this one time at an Indian Casino in Washington State, but I have never seen them. He said that the machines are connected to a central computer system within the casino. The system generates wins and losses and sends them out to the machines when they are being played. He proved this by ignoring winning hands in video poker and getting paid on them anyway in the form of a bonus.
I've been gambling in Las Vegas for the last 19 years and I understand the ins and outs of all types of gambling. I know how these machines work, and I've experienced huge losing streaks on them that seem like they're going to last forever. I've also won lots of money, but the sum of my wins are nowhere near my total loss.
If however I feel that I've been cheated by a casino, I have the Nevada Gaming Board to fall back on. It's a MASSIVE organization with several large offices and tons of sophisticated technology. If you have an issue, they will listen to your complaint. If they really feel like there's something foul going on, they will look into it and find the answer.
No casino in Vegas want's to have the Nevada Gaming Board breathing down their back. They have way too much to lose if foul play is discovered. The NGB is a legit organization that has a long history of successfully resolving gaming disputes.
But for Tyler, he doesn't have this.
If Tyler was to somehow obtain legit proof that he's been cheated by Stake, what type of recourse does he really have?
The process is intentionally complicated, but he can eventually put in a complaint to Curacao eGaming and request an investigation. But the problem with this is that CeG is really under no obligation to actually do anything. If his request falls on dead ears and is ignored, who can he go to? CeG doesn't have anyone to answer to! There is no accountability and no "higher power" above them that can hold them accountable. Even the Canadian government wouldn't be able to make Stake or CeG do anything. And the idea of an investigation taking place that makes such an attempt isn't something that actually going to happen. At best, Canada could just ban Stake from their country, but Tyler doesn't get his money back, and Stake just continues to operate in dozens of other countries around they world.
Stakes Casino's only requirement to operate in Canada is a Curacao eGaming license. Contrary to some opinions, they do not have any special gaming licenses for Canada or any other country. The ONLY regulation that Canada requires from Stake is CeG, and CeG doesn't actually do any regulation at all. There is no documented cases of CeG ever resolving a gaming dispute. Their organization is nothing more than a place that issues a gaming license for the sole purpose of giving these casinos the ability to claim they're regulated. And if you look at their offices, you can see what a joke it actually is.
Here is the address for Curacao eGaming: (It's just an office or two located within the Ara Hilltop Building in Curacao)
Pletterijweg Oost 1 Ara Hilltop Building - Suite A4 Willemstad Curaçao
Here it is on Google Maps:
And here's some photos of what the inside of their offices actually look like (Complete with a bathroom with a dirty tile floor):
Do you really think there's some sophisticated, eGaming analysis and regulation going on inside those offices? Definitely not. It's nothing more than a few people sitting behind a computer generating a gaming license.
So maybe Tyler should just try another casino. What's the difference? They're all regulated by the same group, and that group doesn't do anything.
