I've known my best friend since we were kids and I really want to help him but I don't know what I can do to help, if there's anything to do to help.
My friend is the stereotypical 4chan neckbeard atheist who goes out of his way to make people unconformably with his cringe worthy humor and lack of social edict. When we're hanging out just the two of us, I don't mind the things he says because even if I don't agree I know where he's coming from. But around other people he has no filter and treats everyone like shit. He treats people like there's no consequences and that everything is fucking funny.
I know a lot of what he makes fun of about other people are things he feels insecure about also (not to be cliché but it's true) like weight, acne, race, and sexuality. But he's driving people away and he doesn't seem to care that I'm pretty much he's last friend. He seems pretty confident that I'll stick with him through everything and will always have his back. That's not the case anymore and I'm getting tired of his shitty attitude affecting everyone around him.
I've sat him down to talk to him about this before and it only ended up with him apologizing to shut me up. How can I get through to him? I know I can't really change him but there has to be something I can at least try.

I have a problem with a friend, one that I've had problems with before. Now before everything i should say this I did used to like her but that's changed, I still love her as a person but i wouldn't want a relationship, also that she seems to have a depression issue along with some problems controlling her anger.

Back in July she began seeming stressed out, the last time i saw her was in early in the month where we did something small for her birthday, i just visited her at work. After that she became distant and I was okay with it and she told me she didn't mean too and that she was just under alot of stress. Later I give her a ride to work and she tells me she may be pregnant, then after that day she's pretty distant, a few hi's and whats up and then one day she tells me just to leave her alone, she's been depressed and crying all the time, then some small check ins and more of her needing to be alone, and that she's moving in with her grandparents, throughout all of this it's gradually getting harder to talk to her. Then she says she's going to the doctor to get herself checked in and looked at for the depression, then another week of nothing. I try calling her a few times because I had an emergency and she just snaps one night an says she cant handle me anyone and wants me gone.

I don't know if she's being serious about this, she's had outbursts like this before and usually they've been shorter. I do have a theory on why this ones worse than before though I think she lost another baby, along with her job and house . Would it be safe to assume that this was just another snap. and should I try to talk to again at some point, I feel as if i need to go for a while maybe talk to her again in october and let ourselves find each other again.

What is the recommended high school - college courses path I should take for electrical engineering? Already in second year and trying to catch up because I didn't take any pre-high school summer classes to get ahead and I can take summer courses to compensate. Should I get at least pre-calc or just get Algebra II done before I graduate high school? money is somewhat an issue but I'd like to get ahead, but those summer courses are expensive

get algebra 2 done, it's important for precal 2. does your school not have guides for what to focus on taking for EE-minded students? i legitimately can't tell if you're in high school or college but i'm assuming college

i'm in high school but i mean should i cram my algebra classes into my summer courses and get some pre-calc during my school-year semesters or just go with it normally since money is kind of tight and uncertain as of late

go with it, save ur money for when you're taking college courses. i took precal in HS and tested back into it in college. Nothing from my HS class that wasn't retaught at college, and quite a few things not taught in HS were used in Cal 1

do they have specific engineering programs/courses or am I just taking the required classes separately? i'm kind of confuses what to do after i graduate college or during college in regards to engineering, is there some kind of "EE academy" or something? i'm blind when it comes to college

well a science degree obviously has different requirements than a womens studies degree. you'll know what classes you're going to take way before you actually take them

so now that i have the degree i want, where can I take it to? not literally ofc what i mean is, where can i even look to find a job? i was thinking Silicon Valley working a part in some projects or probably designing electronics/manufacturing but that would be thinking too big, right?

i'm still in school, and barely above the point you're at. i honestly have no idea. Try taking a careers in engineering class. i plan on taking one in my last quarter before transferring to uni

Alright everyone, I'm currently making a game. It's not a big thing, and I'm mainly making it for one person to enjoy, but I need help anyways.

It's going to be about the draenei crash landing from world of warcraft: the burning crusade, where the main character travels through the wreckage and possibly helps (or kills) the survivors.

I'm planning to have NPCs based around the different professions (i.e. tailoring, blacksmithing, cooking, etc.) and have the character interact with them and maybe do a couple of things for them. I'm also planning to have some sort of companion who might follow the MC around and just provide some commentary. This isn't supposed to be a super interactive game, it's supposed to kind of be like Undertale, but minus the actual fighting sequences.

What I'm looking for from you guys is advice on what to make the story and the end goal, and also how I can fluidly introduce the companion. Additional comments about what I should do with the game are appreciated. Also if anybody is able to provide me with a couple of assets (such as floor or wall textures) that would be amazing, but it's not really meant to be super detailed in that department.

also, the perspective is top-down, slightly slanted view (like a lot of JRPGs) . . .
here, I have the link to a discord group: discord.gg/GCxn5 I'd prefer you guys put stuff there so that there can be more real-time discussion, but fj here is fine, too.

Thank you all so much for reading and have a nice day

Any architecture majors?

I need help with my homework. My professor gave us 16 concepts and we have to look up 16 images to define them. I'm down to 2 and they're too fucking weird for me to make sense of them:

3. Exponential Prototypes – It refers to the use and transformation of an original prototype in a repetitive and all-inclusive fashion generating larger forms of similar substance which could not have been arrived at any other way. Objects of this sort often retain formal traces of their original forms within the new skeleton.

12. Abstraction - The reduction to the most basic levels of information pertaining an object that can still manage to convey the object's original message or meaning.

i'm not architect major but let me chip in my thoughts:

the first definition reminds me of pic related, which represents quadratic growth. i imagine it's something like those russian/whatever dolls that can fit inside of each other. if it's looking for patterns within the structure, I would try the Mayan temples since it kind of looks like pic related, if you put the smaller boxes on top of each other, if my thinking is even close to whatever you need

second one just reminds me of minimalistic structures

do we have a mathexplain

how do you find the minimum and the maximum of a graph on desmos

min and max should just be the lowest and highest points that the graph hits. unless you are in a more advanced algebra or calculus then i cant help you

it's a quadratic function, the minimum is the lowest point of the parabola but how do i go about figuring the maximum if it's even possible? or is it just infinite

if its an x^2, second degree polynomial equation , the max is either positive or negative infinity

Do we have a lawyerexplain?

I heard if someone owes over 100K in child support, you can have them arrested even if they are out of state. My dad probably owes more than that. He's been working under the table, collecting welfare and disability, and moved a state over because there is already a warrant in my state. My friend said that warrant could be extended to across the country if it exceeds 100K.

Is this true?

First, Where are you getting the figure for 100k, and how long has he owed "over 100k" for?

I said twice that I heard that if it was over 100K. He hasn't paid a dime since I was like 9. Didn't help pay for anything. I'm 22 now. I know it would stop at 18, but I'm pretty sure he owes over 100K.

Hey fj, so im a minor working at mcdonalds at the moment and school will be starting back up in a couple days. I was delayed my availability change sheet a week before, so now I'm scheduled to work for 4 nights till midnight (which isn't legal). I don't think or know of anyone who would be willing to cover all those shifts and I don't know if i can just say "hey i can't work that late because im in school now" at the beginning of my shift.

should i just work through this week and then start working different hours from then on? what do?

definitely talk to the managers. they could end up in trouble if it's found out that a minor going to school is working hours they shouldn't be.

I think it depends which state you live determines your laws regarding a minors hours so I can't really agree with your statement about 4 nights till midnight being illegal, but I agree with majordegree on that you should probably be upfront with them and explain your situation.

I'm not an art guy and I'm not fond of that art style, very sketchy, to me it's in that uncanny valley of realistic and cartoony that I just don't like.

But that's just me.

As well to be nitpicky if you're looking for hard criticism on artsy types, the proportions on some of the buildings are kind of looking funky as well. I would google some stuff on perspective and proportions for the future. Otherwise, great detail!

More images of perspective and proportions,

thanks m8. I was just looking for dollar figures. Sort of a "what could this go for" for someone who'd be interested in it. I've seen abstract stuff sell in the 100s here in Miami so I was just wondering what this one sketch would go for. It's not really one of my more serious works but I was just curious. I did that piece when I was an amateur, here's something more contemporary

In this piece I was playing with scale to emphasize the medieval Parisian monuments and create a sort of urban playground with the smaller buildings to compliment the monuments and people going about their day. sorry about the watermark

No worries, that looks like improvement from the last! "take the amount of time it took you to make it, multiply this by a wage you’d like to be paid per hour, and then add in the cost of your materials. Some like to multiply this by two if they are selling in a gallery that takes 50%." This is kind of a good way to figure out pricing if you're still curious. Link to the article I took this from in the spoiler bmoreart.com/2014/03/how-to-price-and-sell-your-work.html

I'm not going to pretend I'm a super art major guy but I do know some stuff so here's the what I'm thinking; First off I agree with rokkai that from afar it looks really nice and I would imagine that this would pretty cool to hang on your wall, but I have to note that the perspective looks a little fucky here. When drawing out 3d models on a 2d scale it's pretty important to stay consistent especially when it comes to perspective. I'm also questioning the shading, why don't some the buildings across the water have shading? Is the sun directly above them?

they look very good from a distance. but as you said, they're just sketches and if you or the person who did them can work a little hard i think they'd worth some pretty serious money since they're some pretty detailed works.
