More than 50 years after he debuted as the beloved Capt. James T. Kirk in the original series of "Star Trek" William Shatner boldly flew to the edge of space.
The 90-year-old actor launched Wednesday aboard a rocket and capsule developed by Blue Origin, the private spaceflight company founded by Amazon founder Jeff Bezos. The historic joyride made Shatner the oldest person to reach space.
"It was unbelievable" Shatner said shortly after emerging from the capsule. "I'm so filled with emotion."
Shatner and three other crew members — Audrey Powers, Blue Origin’s vice president of mission and flight operations, and two paying customers, Glen de Vries and Chris Boshuizen — rode Blue Origin's New Shepard rocket and capsule to the edge of space. Liftoff occurred at around 10:50 a.m. Eastern Time and the entire flight lasted roughly 10 minutes.
Bezos escorted the four passengers to the launch pad and greeted them after their spacecraft touched down again. After Shatner climbed out of the capsule, he hugged Bezos and shared how moved he was by the brief trip.
"What you have given me is the most profound experience I can imagine" he told Bezos through tears. "I am overwhelmed. I had no idea."
Shatner recalled feeling jittery before liftoff, and spoke about what it was like to accelerate to the edge of space. He also described seeing the planet's thin atmosphere and gazing back at the curvature of Earth.
"There's this soft blue" Shatner said. "And it’s so thin. And you’re through it in an instant."
During the flight, the "Star Trek" actor tweeted a quote from the 17th-century physicist Isaac Newton: "I do not know what I may appear to the world, but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the seashore, diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me."

2021.10.16 09:54 Impossible-System My last relationship was very emotionally abusive, now I don’t know whether my new relationship is healthy.

I honestly just assume my relationship isn’t healthy. Every relationship I have I start off thinking wow this is the healthiest relationship I’ve ever been in. The the abuse starts some were just manipulative, others were sexually abusive, and all were emotionally abusive. My last relationship really messed me up, worse than the one that sexually abused me. My current relationship has started very similarly to that one. I’ll call my ex B and my new guy L.
When me and B started talking he wanted something serious really badly. Started off as me only wanting a hook up but he got me to emotionally connect and get attached to the idea of a relationship, eventually it turned into us dating after a few weeks. I asked him out. Everything seemed to start really good. Turns out he was cheating on me the first year and a half of us dating, he stopped when I found out. When quarantine started that’s when things got noticeable. He didn’t like me spending time with people. He wanted me in the room with him, but he wouldn’t give me any attention. He’d get on his computer and ignored me. He also started to “jokingly” gaslight me. He would whisper in my ear like I was in a coma and when I kept saying stop that he pretended he didn’t know what I was talking about. Later on he continued to gaslight me by blaming every time I was upset with him on my bipolar disorder. He’d be passive aggressive when I tried to communicate with him. He also made me shave my head.
L and I started talking, then we hooked up. He made it clear that he wanted me to be his girl. Then we saw each other for a few weeks before I gave him the green light to ask me out. Over all he clearly loves and cares about me. But those same looks and touches he gives me of love so did B. If B made me feel the same way at the beginning whats the chance of us turning into my last relationship. Anyway he makes comments that are insensitive but in an ignorant way not a malicious way. For example he decided to tell me one time during sex that we need to find a way to make you tighter. Turns out he’s said that to other girls before and all of them acted like that’s normal, while I cried off and on for 2 or 3 days. He felt extremely badly and apologized a lot when he realized how fucked that was. But he also has a tendency to point out faults before complimenting, not in a mean way in a constructive criticism way, he’s like that with everyone. I obsess over all my tiny imperfections and insecurities, so when he points out a flaw I’ve already seen it but I can no longer brush it off as something I’m just insecure about. Every time he hurts my feelings he holds me and apologizes. I can’t tell if it’s sincere or a manipulative thing. Because of my past my brain is assuming this will turn abusive but my heart wants to believe that I’ve actually found someone that will protect me rather than figuratively through me to the wolves. He’s really protective which I like but realize that can also be a sign. Idk can people just dm me for more information and help me figure out if I’m just paranoid or if it’s warranted.
Sorry about how long the post is.

2021.10.16 09:54 happymeal79 Why would anyone use the bloodstained fossil after the changes?

Bloodstained Fossils now Corrupt an Item, granting them a Corrupted Implicit Modifier (previously granted a Vaal Modifier).
Why would anyone use that? You can't spam it, so you need to get a new base every time it fails. You get a corrupted item with semi-random mods, it's like when using a fractured fossil on a synthesized item but without the guarantee of the synth implicit.
They devoted a league to vaal stuff recently and even buffed the skills, now they take away the one thing besides hateforge that made vaal builds semi possible. I don't get it.

So many people are using extremely punishing decks where if you slip up once while defending, you lose. So I want a deck with more offensive potential so I made this but I'm not to sure about it. Open to suggestions.

2021.10.16 09:54 Newcactus Sexism in church surrounding sexuality.

I have recently began to explore my own sexuality more. Specifically, I have been touching myself in an effort to understand my likes and dislikes (it was recommended to me by a therapist). Throughout the process I have found that, exploring myself is a lot healthier than I would have ever imagined. I have always found it a bit odd that in the church, men are told not to touch themselves, but they are almost expected to masturbate, and when they do it is no big deal. But when a girl admits to masturbation she is labeled as a slut. I don’t feel like there is equality surrounding sexuality within the church. I think one way to combat this is to be more open about sexuality. I mentioned a while ago, that I found a vibrator in my daughters room. After going through therapy and realizing the benefits of masturbation, I decided that rather than shaming my daughter for her habits, I would help her to realize that she should not be ashamed of her body. After talking with my daughter, We have become very comfortable talking about sexuality, and our relationship has gotten stronger. My daughter appears to be more confident, and she seams happier.
I apology for going on a rant. I think the way to combat sexism in the church is for women to be more open about their sexual habits. I think we need to create a counter culture where women do not feel ashamed of their bodies or their sexuality.

I would like to sell a small children’s bicycle and the person buying it wants me to send it via Swisspost. I have read in their website that you need to package it properly, but I can’t find carton boxes that are large enough to fit the bicycle. Does anybody have experience with sending bulky goods? Thanks!

2021.10.16 09:54 thatsapaddlin31 Anyone still waiting for their K1 visa interview at the Montreal consulate?

Hey everyone…
I figured I’d ask here since I don’t use FB and have access to the Montreal K1 visa group…. But I was wondering if anyone was in a similar situation to me.
My NOA2 is April 27, and my approved USCIS application has been there since May 12.
I’ve been using Visa Journey but the information there is scattered.
I’ve been contemplating going to the US for Christmas but I’m not sure if I should because I’m hoping my interview will be by end of year.
Anyways, I would love to hear if anyone in this group is in this situation.
