2021.10.26 12:57 fiftysandwiches I traveled the country interviewing homeless people for 4 months and self-published a book of their stories and experiences, called Fifty Sandwiches.

So, after graduating college I decided I didn't want to get a 'big boy' job just yet. Instead, I ran with an idea I had in high school, where I would travel the country trading lunches for interviews with homeless people throughout the US to put their stories and experiences into a book called Fifty Sandwiches.
After funding a Kickstarter in 2016, I began planning the trip, and a few months later took off on my solo journey in my $1200 van named Milo from my home base in Coeur d'Alene, ID. I taught myself photography throughout the trip and nervously began approaching people on the street and in shelters, in hopes of getting a 'collective face to homelessness'.
It took about 5 interviews in Portland for me to realize my mission was impossible, as I'd have to interview 500,000+ people to get an honest look at the homeless experience. I soon decided the mission of the project would be to capture the diversity and subsequent complexities of the homeless population, in hopes of showing that there is more to homelessness than being homeless.
Without a budget, an agent, editor, etc, I had to learn a whole new set of 'skills' to finally push this thing out 3 YEARS after the trip was completed. I work full time, so I could only work on the book on weeknights and weekends. The amount of work was far beyond anything I could have ever predicted, and I still have a LONG way to go. But hey, I signed up for this, and few things worth doing are easy, it's my creation and I might as well complete it to the best of my abilities. After being unable to find a publisher (who knew a first-time author with a nonprofit project would have such a hard time), I designed, formatted, and edited the book myself and had 3000 books delivered to my home after saving up for two years.
I've now signed and sold nearly 2000 books directly from my dining room, with another 1000 still taking up space so it's been quite the journey! I've been amazed by the support from complete strangers and the interest in spreading awareness and understanding of America's homeless situation!
I'm partnered with a number of programs including the Trevor Project, the National Alliance to End Homelessness, and Volunteers of America to donate a portion of the proceeds from each book, while the remainder goes back into the project to fund future endeavors and (hopefully) pay off some of the book/website/program fees. Readers choose which program they want their proceeds to go to upon checkout. Questions? Concerns? Insults? Feel free to comment on this post. If your insult is too long to comment, email me at [info@fiftysandwiches.com](mailto:info@fiftysandwiches.com). Thank you so much for the read!

2021.10.26 12:57 GoodBehaviourAccount Why do adults drop things we probably enjoy like bouncy castles, ball pits, adventure play grounds, playing it, knocking on peoples doors and running away, you know all the good stuff from childhood?

Im joking but also deadly serious!

I bet its not jsut me and other adults find it fun too.

So why do we give the fun up as we get older? Why not continue doing it?

I suspect its because we come from a serious past where life got tough hard and grim as you got older and weve just carried on with that culture into a new and different time? So we give it up for nothing!

2021.10.26 12:57 merlinmonad Unity FMOD question

Hi peeps, I'm currently implementing audio into a fighting game using Unity & FMOD. We have animation events calling FMOD oneshots.
My question is, is there any way I can preview the animation and animation event easily? I need to see the animation and trigger the requisite sound without having to enter play mode and manually perform the correct controller input every time.
We have around 50 animations on each character rig and until the devs can sort out an animation debug system I'm stuck banging my head against a wall.
Hope there is a workaround?

2021.10.26 12:57 CrossbowJohnson Upgrading RAM - Missing letter 'D' in part number?

I want to upgrade to 32gb of RAM. The RAM model and part number I have installed is G.Skill Trident Z RGB F4-3200C16-8GTZR. I currently have two of these installed, so 16gb total memory. I have found the following on amazon:
https://www.amazon.ca/G-SKILL-F4-3000C16D-16GTZR-Trident-288-Pin-DDR4-3000Mhz/dp/B06WP4L3D7
This looks almost identical, but I noticed in the part number it says C16D. The letter 'D' is missing from the part number reported back to me on my PC. Does this mean the two would be incompatible? I would like to add these to get 32gb total memory.
CPU-Z tells me my max bandwidth is DDR4-2132 (1066 MHz) but I think the ones on the amazon page say they're clocked higher - I think this could just be an advertised speed though.
Any help would be appreciated!

2021.10.26 12:57 curedog Good movies to watch with ADHD

Hi!
I'm a film major and I love movies dearly but I rarely watch them because they feel way too long and my brain doesn't want to deal with that. I would love to watch more movies that aren't too painful to watch, that are relatively fast paced (story development wise) or shorter (like 100 minutes ish. The shorter the better!)
Some movies that I can think of that I can easily watch are Fight Club (there's so many things going on, it's so easy to focus on it), a lot of superhero movies because there's not too much build up. I can't think of any more off the top of my head because there's not too many movies I can find like these, but I want to watch more and ones that are easier to watch would be good for me.
I hope I explained this relatively well, I'm not looking for any specific genre, I just need a movie that doesn't feel like it's dragging. Thanks!

2021.10.26 12:57 Ihatebuttonss Bad friend??

My friend has always wanted a job that would allow her to travel. We graduated high school this year and my mum said she could help her get a job in the travel industry as a holiday rep. My mum spent hours and hours of her own time giving her tips, on calls with her, writing detailed emails to her. And above that, after her interview, the interviewer was not going to give her the job but my mum put a good word in for her so the interviewer decided to make her an offer. But the week she was supposed to accept the offer she found another job for another company somewhere else, and now wasn't sure what offer to take. A week passed and neither I nor my mum heard anything about her decision. Today I got a message saying she has chosen the other offer. My heart kind of broke for my mum, cause I know how much time and effort she put in for my friend, and now had to go back and embarrass herself by telling the interviewer that she did not accept the offer after all. But worst of all, she hadn't even texted or phoned my mum to apologize and thank her for her help, or at least tell her the decision that she had made. I was the one that told my mum, on the phone, I asked if she had heard back and she said she hadn't heard anything. I feel bad for my mum, and guilty for letting her help my selfish friend.
