2021.12.05 17:21 MowingTheAirRand Choosing a starter drone for real estate photography (without geo restrictions)
First I should say I know very little about drones and have a lot to learn before I actually start using this in a business. I would like to pick a drone that is good enough to eventually use for this purpose, but before that, to learn on and practice before getting my commercial license. I'm not looking for the absolute best and most expensive in case this plan doesn't work out, but I want it to be of good enough quality so I can get started.
I was looking at a DJI Mini 2, but then read about their geo restrictions. I don't like the idea of a company telling me what to do with my own property. Is there a similar quality product without geo restrictions? My budget is around $700. If that's unrealistic let me know. Thanks for your advice!

I'm a former high school cross country runner. I'd ran a few half marathons with my dad back then, topping out at a 1:29:xx my senior year. But by that point I was feeling burnt out on pre-race anxiety and the time commitment of being a runner. I was heading to college, and I'd been running cross country for ten years at that point. That's eternity, for a kid.
So in college I traded in my racing flats for beer and Minecraft. I stayed slim but lost all
of my fitness. Once I graduated I felt ready to try running again, but it was not easy going. I spent most of my 20s sidelined by shin splints, too proud and impatient to build a running foundation from the bottom up. I'd go from zero mileage to 3 miles a day, 5 days a week. Then wonder why I was back on the couch with frozen peas on my legs. In May 2020, I finally decided to slow down and start from scratch. Couch 2 5K
got me running consistently again, and I can't give it enough credit. I ran on and off for the next year, never venturing beyond 4 miles.
Flash forward to this year. My good friend and I had tossed around the idea of running St Jude's half marathon for years. In August, she joked about it being another year before we run the race. For whatever reason, I suggested that we sign up for 2021 and see what happens in December. We'd cross that finish line even if it meant crawling down Union Avenue. Training
I trained using Runkeeper's auto-generated training plan. After a few questions, it spit out a daily plan that would supposedly train me for a sub-2 half marathon on December 4th. Five weeks of preconditioning, four weeks of emphasizing speed work, four weeks emphasizing distance, then three weeks of taper. A typical week in the middle of the training program would go like this:
Training Mileage By Month:
- MON - 5-6 mile interval run, 7:55/mi pace
- TUE - 2-3 mile easy run, 10:00/mi pace
- WED - 2-3 mile easy run, 10:00/mi pace
- THUR - 5 mile tempo workout, 8:25/mi pace
- FRI - 2-3 mile easy run, 10:00/mi pace
- SAT - Long run. Usually adding one mile per week, and at race pace (9:00) for a few miles in the middle.
- SUN - Rest.
AUG - 40 SEP - 76 OCT - 120 NOV - 113
I'm very happy with Runkeeper's training algorithm. After a decade of failed attempts, it allowed me to build on my C25K base and run my dream of six days a week, consistently. Each week felt like a challenge, but not insurmountable. Most importantly to me, it also included a full training half marathon 3 weeks before the race, reassuring me ahead of time that I could run the distance, and giving me insight on how to approach race day. Pre-race
We had some good Gus's fried chicken the night before the race. Was this wise? Eh, prolly not. But it's Memphis, baby! After a good night's sleep, we arrived at AutoZone Park at 6 AM, a little groggy but caffeinated. My corral was scheduled for 8:30, so we had plenty of time to stew in that pre-race anxiety that I'd dreaded back in high school. I knew I'd be able to finish, barring injury, but that two hour barrier felt huge. I'd never been able to maintain a 9 minute pace for so long, since getting back into running. The best long run I'd had (by feeling and pace) was a 10 miler all the way back in October, and that felt like an eternity ago at this point. Race Mile 1-2
We started at Beale Street, a nice 60F/15C at race time and a light mist in the air. Perfect conditions, as far as I was concerned. I was pretty far back in my corral, and spent a good chunk of the first section passing runners. I had trouble gauging my pace in the beginning - my only frame of reference was a Runkeeper audio cue at each mile. I felt slow, but maybe race adrenaline evened that out: I stayed just under 9 minutes for the first two miles. Mile 3
There were emotional points throughout the race, and my first was Mile 3. That took us straight through the campus of St Jude Children's Hospital. There were kids and nurses on the sidewalk to cheer us on in the mist and rain, and it really drove home what this race was all about. Through the generosity of friends, family, and complete strangers, I'd raised over $500 for the hospital over the course of my training. So many of my fellow runners had names on their back, dedicating their run to someone who is currently battling cancer or a loved one they had lost. It was a powerful moment, and a real reminder that this was so much more than a race. Mile 4
Hi Mom. I started feeling really good on this mile, and I gave my mom an enthusiastic wave as I trotted by. Mile 5
This is where I found my groove. Most of this mile was downhill, and took advantage of every inch of that by lengthening my stride. I'd been averaging 8:53 up to this point, but I clocked Mile 5 at 8:21! Way ahead of pace, but I was nearing the halfway point, and it felt surprisingly sustainable. I rolled with it. Mile 6
That man is running as Elvis. And I'm pretty sure his belt buckle is a Bluetooth speaker blasting Hound Dog. I feel you buddy, I'm vibing too. Mile 7-9
Miles 7-9 were totally comfortable. I felt like I was made to do this, and nothing could stop me. The crowd was constant on the city streets, even more so as the route took us out of downtown and into the neighborhoods of Midtown Memphis. The signs and costumes of onlookers were a welcome distraction. I interacted with the crowd a bit, but turned down the numerous offered Jello shots, rum shooters, beer and donuts. Miles 10-11
I could tell the wall was looming as I gutted through miles 10 and 11. I'd been throwing a gulp of water down my throat every other mile, but no calories. Maybe I should've taken up that offered donut. At this point, I was constantly reminding myself that there was only a 5K left, and that this was the real race. Can you finish this short run in your current condition? I think
I can. Mile 12
Another emotional moment as we approached Danny Thomas Boulevard and the final two miles of the race. Pairs of banners lined the street, one showing a picture of a kid as they were receiving treatment at St Jude, and the next showing them fully healthy and happy after discharge. It was hard to process anything
outside of the race and how tired I was, but that gave me a boost of determination. Mile 13
My form finally broke down at the beginning of the last mile. Danny Thomas consists of rolling hills, and my legs refused to cooperate on the uphill. I did the math and figured that I had 16 minutes to get to the finish before my goal time. Just gut it in. On the last uphill, I began dry heaving a bit. This isn't out of the ordinary at the end of races for me, and I kept it together. I turned right onto Union, and there was AutoZone Park, and the finish line. And a glorious downhill between it and me. I turned it on with every ounce of energy that felt available to me. My dad's voice somehow floated above the crowd, giving me the same encouragement he used to when he was my grade school cross country coach. It felt like a fitting conclusion to the race, and to four months of hard work and consistent preparation. I wound up nearly 5 minutes below my 2 hour goal time, and I couldn't be happier! Post-race
All the fruit, plus a sports drink and a Wiseacre beer. My parents and friends were waiting for me, and I was both exhausted and elated that I'd accomplished my goal. I was able to watch my friend finish, and thus accomplish her race goal as well. We both got through injury-free: My quads and calves are pleasantly sore today, and I'll probably take a week off before starting on my next running adventure. My left Achilles would occasionally twinge yesterday, like it was a plucked bass string. Weird sensation, but it doesn't feel like a precursor to injury. I'll keep an eye on it.
What a journey. So much of my life since August has revolved around preparing for this race, and I'm finally on the other side. I may next focus on getting my 5K time down, and I have an open invitation to next year's New York Marathon, should I choose to accept it. Doing what I did yesterday but twice over seems absolutely insane. But any kind of running feels kinda insane to me right now. Who knows what the future holds for me, but I know it will involve running next year's St Jude half. It feels so good to be back.

2021.12.05 17:21 distriived Dewalt drywall cutout tool, What Could I be doing wrong?
Ok sorry this happened over a year ago so I'll try to remember as much I can. I'll be doing drywall work again on our new home soon since losing our last house to fire. I have since discovered Reddit so I figure I'll ask you guys.
I tried to use the Dewalt drywall cutout tool when I was hanging drywall in our old home but every time I used it the after a couple of inches the drywall would actually grind down the bit until it sheared off. These were the bits that came with it factory. I bought the set from home depot. On the second one I even took it slower but it still happened. I'm not sure if it was junk bit or operator error. I'm leaning towards operator error lol I had never used one before that. So what could have I been doing wrong?

We’ve done Shauna, Missy, Tai, and now Nat. Who do you think will be the focus next week? Will they cycle back to one of the ladies, introduce a new grown up (would love to know Van survived), do a Travis-centered episode, have no focus, what do you think?

2021.12.05 17:21 redditthrowoff [FL] My son's paternal grandmother has petitiones for full custody of him. Anytime I try to talk to her about anything over text, she says she would rather talk about it in person. Is this because she's trying to keep their from being a paper trail?
She said that she wanted him to live there with her permanently. I told her that I wanted to talk about that and that I was not okay with that. Anytime I call her out for doing what I suspect is her trying to push me out of my son's life, she says things to me like chill out, no one said you were giving up on your baby and neither is his dad. I'd rather talk about it in person.
I get the feeling that she's saying this because she doesn't want there to be a paper trail of anything she has said to me that I could take to court. My son is with her and her husband and his dad at the moment.
I have a feeling that they are just trying to get rid of me and as I said, the reason why she does not want to talk about this over text but only on the phone or in person is because she doesn't want there to be any proof of anything she has said to me that I could use against her in court. Do you think that's the case?

I'm sheet mulching today. I have access to a lot of spent grain from brewing beer. Can I add this as a layer to my sheet mulch or is there a risk of it sprouting? Pretty new to all this. Thanks for the advice!

Venom and Carnage are immune to the spider sense of Peter Parker, but would they be immune to Miles Morales spider sense, or Spider-Gwen, or other alternate reality Peter parkers? What about Parker clones like Ben Reilly?
