Is Shiv from Succession as smart as she thinks she is?

2021.09.28 10:37 Diamondbacking Is Shiv from Succession as smart as she thinks she is?

The Roy children are all products of the damage that Logan has done to them. Kendall was messed up by his Dad's exertions of parental drive, his stammering whenever Logan is in the room an obvious tell of growing up with a narcissist on top. Roman is the youngest, born into a toxic environment that has created a character weighed down by cynicism and an inability to feel joy or attraction, save for when he's being humiliated. And then there's Shiv, Daddy's princess, she of the pet name, wearing the facade of moneyed confidence as if that's enough to take her where she wants to go. But Logan screwed her up in a more interesting way, that classic parental failure of telling your kid they are smart, instead of hard working, and this becoming a part of their identity, so that they do whatever they can to protect that self-image. Shiv has never been willing to fail, never willing to tarnish that image she has of herself and, by extension, the image her father has of her also.

If you're never willing to fail, then you're never able to learn and this we see with Shiv. She plays safe. Constantly. Getting a Dem elected in NY, safe. Marrying a guy 'fathoms' below her. Safe. She puts off Frank and his education in the finances of the business as if it's below her, when really she is unwilling to do the work in an area that is outside her competency.

In the first negotiation with Rhea, during the security scare at ATN, she is entirely off base, vastly over confident in her assessment of the negotiation as Kendall smells blood and sits there, coked up, playing with her, as she commits a series of rookie mistakes. Plenty of evidence here to back up Rhea's claim that Shiv isn't so smart, and of course, there's more.

The faux pas at the Pierce's is her character flaws borne out. She is used to getting what she wants, of uttering it into the ether and having the object of her desire be returned to her, fully formed, like some fucked up karmic boomerang. She had time to strategise with Tom, to figure out her move, and still she fucked it up. This is, you'll remember, the second mis-step in quick succession - whilst employed by Gill, she makes an off colour joke about poor people in the company of her boss and her colleague, both left leaning, then responds rashly to being reprimanded and is fired from a prominent role in an organisation destined for the White House. She gives up her leverage over a stupid joke. Not smart.

Ultimately, the question that drives this show, that runs through every beat and every scene is; who is it going to be? So why does Logan come to her last? Because he knows all of the above. It is, sometimes, a big dick competition. If you want to be a killer, you need a big dick, figuratively speaking. Logan knows that Shiv does not possess one, she's too safe for that. She's a consultant, unwilling or unable to fail and so put it all on the line, better at advising those who do. She's not a killer. And she isn't as smart as she thinks she is.

2021.09.28 10:37 -BBerke- No2 isnt working at all - Help

Hi guys, its been a while and nıw I’m annoyed for not being able to fix it. I can add No2 to any cars, set the values and apply. I can turn on the No2 but it doesnt kick in no matter what I do in settings of No2 hit gears, rpm etc. It only stays green all the way thru each gears in any car.
-I’ve tried to check game files from Steam
-I’ve tried to check files from Beamng launcher support tools
-I’ve tried to start the game in safe mode
But so far nothing changed. May I find the No2 files, delete all and then replace with file check function? Or how can I fix it?

2021.09.28 10:37 peachesandcake420 Just a thought

Maybe you should shower your family with compliments, how about your friends? All those nurses? Those passed to the Lord? Strangers? Like the ones who gave to you? Like the people who broke their back and saved for you to live? Who gave away precious time so you wouldn't go without comfort? Who watched from far away while you explored the Earth that had been placed under your feet? What about the Lord?His creation is perfect, from a blade of grass to King Solomon. Why not paint them with glory, and praise of beauty? Why not kneel for the men who sliced away flesh off hand and foot so you could ponder the divinity of God's work. What about the woman who gave blood from her own heart for you? Or the friends who would lift you when you fall, and do it again without hesitation? The brother that won't leave your side? It hurts and I know I won't ever be good enough for a compliment or thank you but calling me evil, even amongst poetry it makes your words dry and dim to me. I know you're a talented writer, but please paint me as a ghost rather than a foolish drunkard vagrant swinging a club. Life and love are not a contest, appreciate beauty in everything and everyone but never forget it keeps no wrongs, it's more than appearance, and I apologise for taking that away from you. Please show me the kindeness I could not, for such is the way of our Lord. Mercy, Charity and Love, the greatest of which is love. I'd like to read something of yours and not have my heart sink, since I can't see you I hope it's okay I read your words, please make me less of a monster and maybe it will have a parallel in reality. Life imitates art right?

2021.09.28 10:37 Notheunmaker The Fate of the Valor

Not wondering about how the ship got taken out by a single Slasher, but rather what happened to it after DS1. It was lodged in ore storage, and while partly exploded after Isaac grabbed the core, most of it should've still been there. But it's never mentioned again. And sure, Earth Gov isn't going to advertise they lost a warship, but you'd think there'd be an audio log talking about the giant hole in the side of the ship. Where the heck is it?

2021.09.28 10:37 seinomemedart Almost gave up, then I had my first mini lucid dream last night. Keep at it guys!

I started recording my dreams a little over a month ago to improve dream recall, and shortly after started doing reality checks be counting my fingers throughout the day (although I've been pretty lazy with it and mostly it's just glancing at my hands for a second without counting). Started having difficulty remembering dreams at all after a few weeks, got lazy about trying to recall dreams every night and just kind of stopped trying to LD altogether however kept up with the reality checks as a force of habit...
Well I'll be damned, last night in between some wild dreams I had a mini dream that consisted of my walking down a street and seeing a guy cycle past me, suddenly the thought occurred to do a reality check by looking at my hands and instantly something clicked in my mind and said 'this is a dream and you are in control'. The guy on the bike slowed down and started grinning at me so I pointed a 'finger gun' at him and pretended to shoot and he dramatically fell to the floor, only for me to then 'will' him back up and we both laughed it off as a cool LD joke. I could feel my grip on the dream fading after this and within seconds I was awake in my bed absolutely psyched that this stuff actually works!!
Straight back to the LD routine for me - it might only be a tiny success but feels like a big step getting that mindset while asleep
