2021.10.23 18:01 superassholeguy The church really only has two options moving forward: 1.) backtrack the literal truth claims and narrative; or 2.) double down and claim the decline is a separation of the wheats and tares.

I just started thinking of their truth crisis dilemma right now from a business perspective — and the church is pretty much screwed moving forward. Unless Mormon Jesus shows up in the next couple years here, the Mormons are going to have to pivot.
The first option is to back track and just sell it all as never being literal, it’s just a feel good do good organization, and let go of the hard core fire and brimstone doctrine. This route, they’ll retain more members, but they’ll lose the die hards. People will take it less seriously, and people will feel less obligated to pay a tithe -> reduced revenue.
Or the second option is to double down. Stick to their guns and claim literal communication with God. Gaslight the people who leave, and claim this is the separation of wheats and tares. This will drive out most people like all of us here… but this might actually be the better business move.
Can you imagine if they double down, and make the exclusive club MORE exclusive? Make the die hards feel MORE chosen and MORE special?
There will be less people who hang around, but from a revenue perspective — I think they would have an easier time getting a small group to pay an increased tithe (God said he needs 20% now), than getting a larger less devoted group to keep paying 10%.
I had never really thought about it that way before, but I’m interested to see how it plays out.

2021.10.23 18:01 sadmadstudent How to play online chess with neurological disorder that causes hands to shake?

I am having difficulty playing chess online. I have a condition that causes severe shaking in my hands and forearms, so I often jerk by accident and move the piece I don't want to move. Essentially, I mouse slip. It isn't my fault, and there's nothing I can do about it, but it affects approximately 1/4 of all my games, more in a bad week.
Is there any hope for playing anymore? I lose so many games, in my view unfairly, by mouseslip giving away queens, rook, just moving pieces to completely random squares because of the shaking. None of my opponents seem to care. I usually explain in chat before the game starts, and politely submit a takeback request if it occurs. But nobody ever gives the takeback, and often I am mocked and insulted. More often I'm just ignored. I assume they just think I am blundering and lying to win.
I love chess, I love the thrill of the game, I am getting pretty good. But all my hours of analysis and study and practice mean nothing online. I throw a full quarter of the games due to my condition, and no one I have played seems to have the empathy or integrity to allow a takeback.
Is there a way forward for me? For people like me? Will we be perpetually excluded from this wonderful game, or just have to accept that I will lose games I don't deserve to lose?
I don't even know if it's fair to appeal to the opponent -- from their perspective, they have no way to know I'm telling the truth, but also, they want to win. It directly penalizes them to give back a move, even if it was made accidentally. But also, it seems drastic to ask Lichess for an accessibility badge or profile icon or SOMETHING so that it's indicated to my opponent they should give the move back. But even that seems ethically murky. Whats to I am just speculating ideas. But right now online chess is completely inaccessible for me, and due to the pandemic I can't play OTB anywhere in my hometown. The best solution seems to be to appeal to my opponent's good nature and ask them not to penalize the mouseslip; but most chess players I've interacted with have demonstrated an astonishing lack of empathy and even cruelty about this.
Just want to get a conversation going.

2021.10.23 18:01 simplytaxing Denial of EITC/ACTC when using PYEI - any updates?

I'm looking for updates on the handling of PYEI for EITC and ACTC when current year EI is $0.
A redditor a couple of months ago said they received a letter saying they did not qualify for EITC based on PYEI. Their current year earned income was less than their PYEI, so they should qualify based on the wording usually used, but their CYEI was actually $0, so they would not have qualified for any EITC without the PYEI.
Someone replied and said that was correct, but many of us had been using software that allowed the above (in particular TaxSlayerPro - used all over the country by VITA - was applying EITC based on PYEI even when CYEI was $0).
2019 EI will be allowed in EITC and ACTC calculations for 2021 returns, so it's important to know what is correct.
My question is, can anyone confirm either way, from their clients or otherwise, whether PYEI can be used to calculate EITC if CYEI is $0?

So I was just at my Ma's, and she made me go through the bins of old childhood stuff so she can clean. Well I stumbled upon a bin of collector cards, mostly hockey but a bunch of baseball and football cards as well.
Any help on the process of appraising all these things would be greatly appreciated.

2021.10.23 18:01 borishasnoguts I think my dad lied about getting me a birthday present again...

My birthday was October 3rd. I spent it with my mom, but she took me back to my dad's house, where I live, towards the end of the night. I remember not wanting to get my hopes up in thinking he'd gotten me something.
Last year he said he would get me something. At first he would say "I'll have your present next week". And he just repeated himself until I gave up hope. He never got me a birthday gift. Not even a gift card.
So I came home on October 3rd and as expected, no gift. I cried myself to sleep a few nights in a row. It really hurt thinking my dad couldn't even be bothered to go get me a card or anything. I'm a very grateful person and any gift means so much to me, I don't ever expect others to spend a lot of money on me but when it comes to the people I love I do expect at least some form of acknowledgement yk. Like fuck scribble "I love you" on a sheet of paper and I'll be happy.
Anyways by October 9th he told me "don't think I forgot about your birthday present, I need a week to save up for it." Honestly, I'm an idiot for it but I did let this give me hope. I got excited that my dad didn't forget about me. I told my girlfriend how happy I was and she celebrated with me.
...October 17th rolls around... what do I hear? "Don't worry, I'll have it next week."
...and a week later... still nothing...
...better yet he stopped talking about it all together...
...God it hurts so much worse than if he just would've said "I'm sorry I can't afford your gift this year". He had to get my hopes up again. His pride wouldn't allow him to straight up tell me. I'm mad, I won't lie. But really, I'm just very deeply hurt.

2021.10.23 18:01 rock6954 Servpro threatening a lien

Hi everyone,
I had water damage in my unit recently. Servpro franchise came out and took the measurements of the entire house and provided an estimate before starting any work. There were some rooms and spaces that were unaffected but they were still included in the cost of the estimate with the understanding that the estimate would be updated in accordance with the actual work done post the repairs. However, Servpro is refusing to update the final invoice based on the actual work that was done and is still charging me for additional rooms and services in the estimate where there was no work done by them. Post completion, I reached out to Servpro team repeatedly to have the estimate updated but they never answered so I ended paying for the services that were actually rendered (which is about 50% portion of the total bill) and asked for clarifications on rest of the billing items. Now months later, they’re threatening to put a lien on my property if they do not receive the full payment soon. I have provided them with evidence of work done (and not done) and they’ve refused to review any bill clarifications, and is charging for services not delivered to the customer. I believe this is is extremely unethical and complained to the corporate team too. I’m receiving no help from the corporate or franchise team to resolve the matter. Can anyone please advice what I can do?
