Anyone know of any real-world analogues of the fantasy adventurer?

2022.01.22 00:28 Iestwyn Anyone know of any real-world analogues of the fantasy adventurer?

I'm sure you guys know of the trope, but by "adventurers," I mean "freelancers who accept dangerous contracts such as driving off bandits/wildlife, pursuing criminals, retrieving lost or stolen goods, escort travelers/explorers, etc." Essentially small-scale mercenaries. In some versions of the trope, adventurers are organized into guilds, which will connect adventurers with clients (presumably for a share of the reward). Sometimes, these guilds also encourage high-quality adventurers through ranking, training, regulations, etc.
Does anyone know of a period in history where there was a profession like this?

2022.01.22 00:28 hellothisismt I need a control board for dometic dm2872rbx, ones that look identical dont list my model number in the compatible lists

The fridge has been freezing, so I took off the control board to test the thermistor and discovered the thermistor plug was broken off the control board.
I originally ordered the dinosaur brand micro p-711 because that was what was coming up when I did a quick search. However, after receiving the item, it was a wrong part. The thermalcouple plug wasn't the same, but everything else fit.
Now I'm looking at dometic part number 3316348.900. It looks like the same exact one currently in the rv but none of the websites say it is compatible with my fridge.
Any techs out there who can confirm which part I need?
Id take it in under warranty since the rv is 6 months old, but I dont feel like driving 3 hours to the nearest camping world and leaving it for weeks on end. Im comfortable doing the work though.

2022.01.22 00:28 Koryn99 Cheap OCG Equivalent to Sites Like TCGPlayer?

I was looking at some cool old cards I was interested in collecting just for how they look because I like cards that look like characters you could've seen in a fantasy anime by Kazuki Takahashi, like Fairywitch, Doriado, and other old ones that are OCG only but I played in the GBA games. I was wondering if there's a site like TCGPlayer where we outside of the OCG regions can order cheap singles of any card? I know shipping might be a fair bit, but it'd be nice to know there's an option.

2022.01.22 00:28 snow_wrinkle77 Fuck Scalpers

I've been a die hard fan of the Red Hot Chili Peppers since I was a child. I got in trouble for singing the lyrics to "Californication" in kindergarten cause I thought it was about vacations in California. Now, my guitar hero that I based my guitar and pedalboard after; JOHN motherFUCKING Frusciante... Rejoined the band and I can't get good seats for an affordable price. This was supposed to be my graduation present but scalpers made it impossible.
If I had the option of getting VIP tickets to the shows of my favorite bands, or watching scalpers burn alive in front of their loved ones, I'd choose the latter.
Scalpers, go fuck yourselves.

2022.01.22 00:28 BathNegative 23 [M4F] Arizona/Anywhere - Looking for friends, maybe something more

Hi, I’m Corey.😊

Social life and dating life has evaporated since the pandemic started so here I am of all places.💀 If I’m not working I’m usually at home chilling with my dog and kitty. Going on runs/walks, binge watching the 8 thousand shows I’ve started and never finished, playing videos games (PC & Switch) blasting music and annoying my neighbors with my singing, trying to cook but failing miserably every time. I love all types of movies. Horror definitely one my favorite .Little bit of everything when it comes to music but mostly rock, pop, small bit of country, metal, and rap. I absolutely love sports and can talk about it for hours if that’s your thing. I’m introverted as heck but I’m super chill and won’t shut up once you get to know me. I love dark humor and sarcasm. I’m a big mental health advocate and believe it’s something that gets over looked quite often. Just looking to bond with people over whatever. We can talk about crazy conspiracy theories, controversial crap, life, aliens, sex, etc. Always down to exchange memes, play iPhone games, watch shows together, whatever sounds fun. If you’re need someone to vent to, if you gotta cry it out, count on me . I would love to hear what your hobbies, interests, weird likes, pet peeves, whatever it may be is! Go into detail about your day at work, what drives you to wake up everyday, crazy stories? Absolutely anything!
I’ve built a pretty good life so far. Just me, my doggo, and kitty chilling in my apartment. Would hope to find someone for long term. Needing my partner in crime, doing silly crap, baking cookies at 2AM, making ridiculous and random noses out of nowhere, pranking each other, going on little adventures into the woods, exploring haunted areas, traveling the world, and have a cute little family but chances of that are low. But who knows, anything can happen. I’m also up for just some friends, talking crap, whatever we are up for.
But please only message if you’re seriously down to be friends or looking for something a bit more. The amount of no replies back, rude comments, ghosting, and shit is annoying lol. I don’t care about your work schedule, timezone, etc. I’ll work around that. Just give me the same energy back is all I ask.😊
PS: If my dog or cat doesn’t like you, this won’t work out, I’m sorry.🤷
Me (:

2022.01.22 00:28 Eirikur_da_Czech Tried making Knedliky and Hovězí Guláš for the first time today.

So this is mostly my observations and thoughts on how it turned out.
My background: I am an Italian-American and classic americana cook. Was professional for 11 years.

First, I used these recipes: and
1: My local stores did not stock Wondra flour so I used a substitute recipe I found where you sift in 2 teaspoons of corn starch per cup of flour and then sift the whole thing again before using it. I don't feel like this was sufficient. The knedliky were a lot denser and bumpier than I was expecting. If I ever try this recipe again I will be sure to take the time and find or order some proper Wondra flour.
2: I'm not the best baker in the world, and it's been about a decade since I baked anything, but I sort of feel like my kitchen was a bit too chilly and the dough didn't quite rise enough before I boiled it. I know the yeast was alive because the bloom was sort of frothy when I mixed it into the flour so I am confident I didn't kill the yeast but I maybe should have let it rise overnight? I gave it about three hours total and, like I said before, the knedliky were a bit dense and not as aerated as I was expecting (are my expectations incorrect? I have never had this dish before)
3: Maybe I did it wrong, but I was expecting the beef to be falling apart a bit more. It was very tender but still held its cube shapes firmly. I feel like I would have simmered it for about 6 hours rather than 2 and a half. But maybe my expectations are off again. Not sure. I'm curious to try this made by experienced Czech cooks.
4: The sauce was delicious. Reminded me of pepper steak a bit. It could have had a bit of cayenne for some spice, but even as it was, it was fantastic. Easily my favorite part of this dish.
Overall, I was pretty happy with it. I want to try proper Czech cooking and get my expectations worked out before I try it again. But what do y'all think? Does anyone have experience making knedliky or guláš and have any tips or pointers?

2022.01.22 00:28 manage_money USCIS released alert for EB upgrade. What’s the game plan? Are they going to transfer cases from NSC to NBC once they receive the interfile request to change underlying basis from Eb3 to EB2?

With the new recommendations from USCIS what do you think is going to happen? Do you think downgrade petitions will finally see light of the day out of NSC/SRC? Where do you see priory dates moving?
