2021.12.02 08:59 Albertjweasel Yew, the ‘Death tree’
The Yew,Taxus baccata, is one of only three coniferous species (trees that bear cones and needles instead of leaves) which are native to the British isles, the others being the Scots Pine, Pinus sylvestris, and the Juniper, Juniperus communis.
The “Death tree”
It is most famously found in the country’s graveyards and the grounds of country houses although it grows freely in the wild, according to the British poet and novelist Robert Graves, author of the ‘I Claudius’ novels, the yew is the “death tree in all European countries”, being closely entwined with European folk-lore and, mythology. It is also the original tree of the pagan’s winter festival of Yule, which, of course is today’s Christmas, although the evergreen leaves and red berries of the Holly now take it’s place in our modern traditions.
At Stonyhurst college, in the Ribble valley, Lancashire a path lined with Yew trees, called the ‘dark walk’, was made the setting for Sir Charles Baskerville’s grisly death in the novel ‘The Hounds of the Baskerville’s’ which Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote in the 1800’s whilst he was reading medicine there.
There are several theories as to why the Yew is regarded in such a deep and dark way, one is that it’s leaves, berries and bark can be lethally poisonous, Shakespeare was familiar with this when he had Macbeth concoct a poisonous brew, the ingredients of which included “slips of yew, silver’d in the moon’s eclipse”, perhaps this is one reason why the tree is associated with death, this perception cannot help but be reinforced by the fact that are so often found in graveyards, and beside churches, particularly at pre-Christian religious sites.
Another reason is possibly due to the way that the drooping branches of old Yew trees will root and form new trunks wherever they touch the ground, symbolising death and rebirth, which is the main theme of the Celtic mythologies.
Outliving whole civilisations
Yew trees are one of our longest lived tree species, although it is hard to age them through the traditional ring counting method as they tend to rot from the middle outwards. Some will have been alive to see the Pictish, Pagan, Celtic and Roman civilisations come and go, a Yew at St Cynog’s Church near Swansea in Wales is claimed to be more than 5,000 years old, and the Fortinghall Yew in Glen Lyon in the centre of Scotland could be anything from 2000 to 9000 years old!
One of several legends told about the Fortingall Yew is of how Pontius Pilate, fifth governor of the Roman province of Judaea, who infamously presided over the trial of Jesus, later ordering his crucifixion, was born under this very tree, whilst his father was on a diplomatic mission to talk with a Pictish king. This would make it over 2000 years old at the least, and might also explain why the Yew lost favour as a symbol of Christmas! The Fortingall yew has, rather sadly, been vandalised by tourists removing pieces of bark so has been given only 50 more years of life.
Longbows, furniture and drugs
The Yew was commonly grown near to human settlements as it’s timber is immensely useful, although it is technically a ‘softwood’ it grows very, slowly, which gives the wood great strength. The thin, springy branches of the Yew were once used in medieval times to make extraordinarily powerful longbows, in the Hundred Years War, which was a series of armed conflicts between the kingdoms of England and France during the Late Middle Ages, stretching from about 1347 to 1453, the English used these to devastating effect.
Earlier in the 1300’s during the battle of Bannockburn, Blàr Allt nam Bànag, the Scottish army, fighting for Scottish independence, were ordered by Robert the Bruce to make longbows from the sacred Yews at Ardchattan Priory in Argyll. Many army’s throughout history have known of the use of the Yew for war, even the scientific name of the Yew; Taxus, comes from the name for a type of javelin which was made from it’s wood.
Nowadays the wood is used for making veneers and furniture, it is also popular in landscape gardening as it can tolerate repeated clipping and shaping. It’s human uses have been somewhat limited by it’s toxicity although a homoeopathic tincture can be made from the young shoots, the flesh of the berries are also used by herbalists to treat illnesses including cystitis and neuralgia, recently it has been discovered that the leaves and bark contain compounds called taxanes, which have been used to develop a drug for the treatment for some forms of cancer, which has the brand name of Taxol.
Poison for man, food for beast
Although every part of the tree is poisonous to humans and cattle other beasts find it quite palatable, Badgers will eat the fruits, called ‘arils’, and pass the seeds intact, other mammals such as Squirrels, Deer and Rabbits can also eat these fruits. Birds eat the berries in their hundreds, with the Yew sometimes being one of few sources of winter fuel for migrating species such as the Blackbird, Thrush and Fieldfare. The larvae of some insects, including the Tortrix moth and Satin Beauty moth, will graze on Yew needles and the dense, evergreen foliage of the Yew coupled with it’s thick bark full of nooks and crevices make it very attractive to insects looking for somewhere dry and safe to hibernate, in spring the canopy of the Yew is perfect for nesting birds too, in a way this completes the symbolic life/death cycle of the Yew perfectly.

2021.12.02 08:59 AcademicSavings634 That weird thing where Hunter jumps into the air in ETD.
Did anyone else’s copy of ETA have Hunter just randomly jump into the air after the tutorial/flight challenge? I thought it was the most random and funniest thing as a kid. I guess the game wasn’t programmed correctly to spawn and de spawn Npcs. If you use the swim in the air glitch you can actually find him floating around on the outside of the map.

2021.12.02 08:59 Several_Manager_610 Barely holdning on
I don't talk about my feelings much to my family or my friends, and when I do I hide it by jokes and laughing it off. I know it's a trauma response because I grew up with being told that showing emotions and crying was a sign of weakness and that "I had nothing real to be sad about". I have been self-harm free for years now but in the past year or so my entire life is literally crumbling in front of me but I feel so numb that I can't react to it. My family is also going through a hard time and meanwhile I'm barely holding shit together, I get told that "it's so great that I'm so strong and hold it together for the entire family" and that "you're the glue that makes sure we all don't go under and you're saving us by helping so much".. I literally cannot breathe, I can't feel anything and I don't know how to tell anyone because I don't want some wack excuse or explanation over how I'm overreacting over nothing.
I quit my job, without having a new lined up, I'm soon done with my degree and my dreams of going to grad school seem so distant because I can't tell if it's my dream or if it's what's expected of me. I haven't been in contact with anyone for 4 months but then again contact goes both ways, and they haven't tried to contact me.. My birthday is tomorrow but I don't feel like it's real and I don't want another empty birthday.. I've had 22 of them now and it's starting to be repetitive and somehow it gets lonelier every time.. I just want to not be fighting to wake up, to smile again, to feel again, to not be the glue that holds everyone together because no one is trying to be there for me. My cup is empty and it's just a matter of time before all my bad habits come crashing down over me.
I feel like I'm swimming in the middle of the ocean without a safety west and that it's starting to storm. The last time those waves hit me I nearly drowned. But I'm getting so tired of staying afloat, I'm tired of swimming because I can't see the shore. But I also can't stop. When I was little I was admitted to the hospital for two diseases that nearly killed me. I promised the little girl inside of me that I wouldn't give up if I got to survive but how do I tell her that I'm slowly losing my light and my strength. Gosh I just don't want to continue if it's like this. I can't keep pouring out of my empty cup.
I just need a place to get these emotions out.

2021.12.02 08:59 Threshwillrise What's the limit on Tail Glow's sp. attack buff ?
Like, one good thing about recent games is that you could see the number of consecutive stat buffs you could have (4 max iirc ?), but I'm not quite sure here. Using it twice in a row is the maximum, but since it says it "drastically" increases it, does that mean it alone is a 3/4 sp. atk buff, and the second one just adds one other 'stack' ?
Also, does it last forever or does it go away after a set amount of turns ?
Thanks in advance !
OH YEAH and are there any good alternatives to Nasty Plot/Blade Dance ? Malding that I can't teach Diagla the former, he's one of four legendaries I ever had on my team
