2020.10.25 22:13 lizakalem Is my boyfriend LVM? Please help

Hi Queens,
This is a throwaway account because I have a feeling my boyfriend knows my original one.
I’m dating a man who is Australian and just for reference I’m Indian. We’ve been dating for a year now. Overall he’s affectionate and caring. He tells me he loves me everyday. He always reminds me that I’m perfect, he won’t change one single thing about me.
And he knows I want marriage within a year and is willing to propose. So basically he’s not in this for fun, he is committed. I met his parents, and he met mine. And I love them as much as they love me. Everything is going smoothly but.....
1) I really don’t like how he comments about other girls appearance. E.g he comments on how a woman looks awful in jeans because she’s overweight and her stomach is sticking out or says things like how her tights are see through you can see her underwear.
2) In my culture, the man pays for meals. It shows that he can provide and it’s done out of respect for the women. But with him he wants to split the bills or suggest he pays for lunch while I pay for dinner. It just feels so unromantic!
And I’m sorry to stereotype but I’ve realised this is common across many Aussie guys. They always expect to split the payment. I honestly find it to be a turn off.
It’s not so much the money. I don’t care about spending money on my meals but I like the feeling of him taking care of me by saying “hey sweetie I got it, I’ll pay”. Instead sometimes he stands there awkwardly sometimes waiting for me to pay because he paid last time.
3) Once we were hanging out and I saw a book that said something like “how to not put up with men....” and I jokingly said I should get that book, and he laughingly said don’t get it and that he likes me being subservient.
——
I don’t want to be one of those women who says he’s amazing but he does this and that. Because I usually cringe at these posts.
It’s just that I’m really lost, I need help. I feel like he’s amazing, he treats me right, he loves me and I can see it in his eyes. He doesn’t lie, he’s always honest with me. He’s like a big teddy bear, yet sometimes I feel resentment against him for the points I mentioned above. Especially the second point.
I’m so lost. I don’t know what to do. I love him, I want a future with him but these things are bothering me.
So ladies, is he a LVM or am I just blind?
And please share if you has a similar experience, I would love to hear your thoughts.

2020.10.21 00:34 daphne_dumaine Guy explaining to me why one of his favourite books is Lolita...

One of my ways of levelling up is building friendships; having pen pals has been a part of that ever since I was a teenager. There is something special to me in discovering another person's ideas and thoughts without being distracted by appearance, while taking time for a well thought-out reply. Over the years though I have noticed that (especially) guys use pen pal platforms as dating sites. So over the years I have become wary when guys write me. For example, an Australian dude dropped hints how enchanted he was by faraway Europe, how he one day hoped to marry an European girl (it's always girl, not woman!). All of this nestled in giant flattering and philosophical messages as to appear genuine. I've become loath to share philosophical ideas and feelings with men as pen pals now.
Yesterday, a dude started (I'm not writing men anymore!) what seemed to be a promising conversation. Weirdly, he focused on one aspect in my profile, saying it's of great interest to him though he had failed to mention it on his profile. Red flag no. 1! Especially since I mentioned that for this aspect/hobby, I would like to meet up with people.
He had Lolita listed as one of his favourite books. I got suspicious but wanted to give him the benefit of the doubt. I have never read the book but know the plot. So I asked him how he found that the book handled the themes. Maybe he was gonna say something like, it's interesting how the thoughts of such a depraved pervert were depicted!
Why am I even still believing in the good of men.
He wrote that the book was mostly about how the protagonist 'falls in love' with Lolita and how the book depicted his 'love for an underage girl' as 'sympathetic' and makes the reader feel sorry for him.
Excuse you?! Some pedo's disgusting desire for a 12 year old girl is certainly no love! He didn't even condemn that depravity with one measly word!
Queens, beware of male pen pals, especially those who brag about their intellect and philosophical ramblings.

2020.10.20 17:51 obstinatecompass (30F) Tired of Bf (27M) of 6 years gaming habits and general lack of motivation to do anything that doesn't involve a couch and screen. Are we just incompatible?

My (30F) boyfriend (27M) of 6 years has always had really bad gaming (habit) problems. (never like 15 hours a day-okay, maybe sometimes when I've gone out of town), but yeah, definitely a daily issue. He stays up every single night until 3 am (sometimes earlier, sometimes later), and has to be up for work at 8am. Every day he feels "fatigued" and "unmotivated". He claims he has insomnia, yet when we've gone to the beach or had a full day of outdoor activities, whatdya know, he sleeps like a baby. Not so surprising since it's been scientifically proven that exercise improves mood, depression, motivation, and insomnia. Of course he ignores those facts.
When we met, he was not gaming, so I had no idea that he was even a gamer until we lived together (3 months after dating he moved from GA to FL). When we first got together, we went on adventures all the time, hiking, beach, parks, travels, all of it. The gaming and chores were always an issue, but at least we had some balance and created fun memories together. If I would have known about his gaming, I never would have dated him because that was the primary issue is my last 4 yr relationship (depression and gaming). My current S/O and I met through our jobs (fire + entertainment industry), but over the years, we both stopped performing and picked up different careers. I am in school doing pre-vet medicine and also own a mobile coffee shop, he's works as a system administrator (IT), we split finances and are good about it. We keep all finances separate except a few large purchases. I come from a very high energy, exercise a lot, sports, beach, rollerblading, pool, big, hispanic family. He is the total opposite. He (white) grew up basically as an only child with only his mom who gave him everything and let his gaming run rampant and NEVER made him do ANY CHORES (literally nothing-I have witnessed and experienced this. She doesn't let us clean anything at all or help with anything when we visit-so I know exactly why and where these habits were formed.) She (his mom) is amazing, and has been a wonderful mom in many ways, and I'm not trying to blame this all on her or anything because he is an adult now, but, I think it does matter to know WHY we do what we do because through understanding comes learning (IMO).
I also want to say my partner is a great person. Super intelligent, has a good job, excellent hard-working employee, loves animals, sweet, caring, emotional (in a good way since most men lack this trait), empathetic, handsome, we have really good sexual chemistry, he's protective of his family, my family loves him and vice versa, etc, etc.. he is honestly the perfect person.. except for this not-so-small issue, which affects every aspect of our relationship.
Side note about our pets because this is also a big issue and red flag in regard to how he will be as a parent-I want one maybe two kids one day in the future. Not a huge priority for either of us, but still: we have 4 dogs. I had two before him, then he (we) got two more. His two are large breeds (Belgian Malinois and an Australian Shepherd AKA very high energy and REQUIRE daily mental and physical stimulation-he knows this, we went to a K9 trainer at one point and he even considered being a dog trainer-he really is INCREDIBLY PERFECT when he tries..) mine are small terrier breeds. Before him, I walked my dogs n twice a day, took them to parks weekly; I was a great dog mom. Then he came along, was a great dog dad for about a year.. then started slacking. Now, it's a DAILY problem because he WILL NOT get up from the couch or his desk unless I ask. here's the thing, he'll do it if I ask.. but I'm so SICK of being the one to initiate anything productive. I also want to be lazy and sit on the couch after work, that's always the "easier" option, but I have a responsibility not only to my dogs, but also to myself, to take care of my body. He very rarely cooks and don't get me started on grocery shopping (LOL). At one point he was keto for 6 months and he was cooking for us, but that was it. Otherwise, he really doesn't do kitchen stuff.
Anyway, yeah. I have tried EVERYTHINHG from ultimatums, breaking up, being super patient, writing letters, doing everything for him (chores, cooking, walking his dogs, etc.). I've looked up, read, gone to therapy (alone), youtube videos. I've tried and sttill continue to do all the correct communication (no interrupting, yelling, speaking from a place of "I miss our..." instead of "You are addicted!" The problem is that he'll usually end up admitting there is a problem with his habits and he'll say he wants to change and will for a few days. I think the longest any change ever lasted was a month or two. This has been a constant fight at least once a month (maybe at our best we went 2-3 months without fighting). Then when I confront him about things, like "Hey, we just had this huge talk yesterday, I thought you said you would start doing x,y,x?" I almost always will get a reaction accusing me of being controlling and nagging, and he won't do whatever it is, so we are back to square one. This has been our battle since the beginning. It somehow always gets turned around to me being controlling and not giving him time to do it on his own (HELLO! BECAUSE I'VE TRIED THAT AND IT DOESN"T WORK!! If I "give him time", the house will turn into the most disgusting bachelor house you've ever imagined). I just cannot live like that.... and I'm not even asking for the house to be spotless, but just basic stuff like picking up the dishes, washing dishes, cleaning the table, sweeping, the yard (remember we have 4 dogs and imagine 4 dogs pooping twice a day.. that's A LOT of poop in the yard especially since he isn't walking them). Like, it's bad. I hate it SO much. I actually used to have a yard. it's just a poop area now :'(.
I wish I were ending this with "and after our millionth fight, he finally made the choice to change his habits!".. but no. Unfortunately, I STRONGLY feel that people will not change unless they want to, and it is not OUR responsibility to do EVERYTHING possible to help them. They need to make these changes themselves because if it's not them doing it FOR themselves, they will not stick with it because they're only doing it for someone else, and that just isn't a long lasting solution.
The only reason I am not breaking up with him right now is because we still have 2 years on our lease together; Otherwise, I would have left. Essentially, he has 2 years to get his shit together and if he doesn't have it by then, I'm done.
Is there *anything* left for me to do, or are we just incompatible? I'm a get up and go type of person, and he wants to immerse himself in a VR. I see some couples who live different lives.. they don't share the same hobbies, have different sleep schedules, but have similar views on life, etc.. but that doesn't seem to work for me. I need someone who shares similar interests and lifestyle. Not everything, but some.. I don't want him to "change" if it's not what he wants. I'm TIRED of being the one to initiate everything, literally everything. It's always my idea to cook, clean, laundry, walk dogs, plan anything. I just don't know what to fucking do anymore. This is not sustainable. I guess I'm just wondering if I'm actually being controlling and unreasonable (because this is how he's made me feel), or should he be doing his part with domestic work and balancing time outside of the house. Even our neighbor asked me if he was okay because he hadn't seen him in weeks. he'll just stay in his dark room forever if it were up to him.
Sorry for the rant :(

2020.10.20 08:54 Northstar1989 Missing Physical Touch

This pandemic has been absolutely brutal on me.
Reading a reddit post and comments today about somebody cuddling with their Aussie (that's Australian Shepherd- an EXTREMELY physically affectionate breed)- not coincidentally the breed of dog I want to own someday when I'm in an apartment that will allow it, and can also afford the everyday costs AND potential for things like emergency vet bills... And it reminded me of how much like the breed I am (highly intelligent, type-A/work-focused, HIGHLY physically affectionate, a tiny bit protective/suspicious) and how painful this pandemic has been for me.
Aside: I'm a student- returned to grad school for more grad degrees before the pandemic, and put all my disposable income into Harvard Extension School night-classes while working before that, trying to get into an MD to become a surgeon... Boston rent is also unforgiving/astronomical.
Things weren't exactly easy for me before this. I've never been great at dating, used to get bullied a lot (all the way through, most recently, by last year's roommates: who LITERALLY pushed/shoved me around and stole from me), and despite having an attractive face, kind personality, and sharp mind; also have a weak/excessively-slim frame that detracts from any physical attraction (weight 156 lbs at 6'0", but look even lighter) and has always made me a target for bullying (also led to my struggling with ROTC PT scores and a Marine Corps officer recruiter later turning me down, telling me I only had a "50/50 " shot of making it through OCS due to my physique). I'm also a nerd who wears glasses (and absolutely can't stand the feel of putting in contacts).
Before the pandemic, though, I could at least supplement my lack of success with dating (never been in a true relationship: defined as dating with one person longer than 3 months... The only girls who ever were physically attracted to me, except a few seriously oveunder-weight ones, were usually Asian- I'm guessing because of the typically smaller frames of Asian men...) with hugs/backslaps from friends, high-fives or fist-bumps with acquaintances, and occasional handshakes meeting strangers.
Now it's just complete isolation. I've gone days or multiple weeks without physical touch many times during the pandemic (my roommate, who is a really nice/solid guy, is NOT a huggetoucher in any way at all- he's former military, a bit bottled up emotionally). It's outright physically painful at times (yes, bad enough physical/social isolation can actually set off pain centers in your brain- read up on it!)
Dating feels next-to-impossible except through dating apps: which suck and had a horrible success-rate for me even before the pandemic. How does one meet anyone like this? The only girl I met recently was in the park, when I was petting dogs (canines love me to a degree that astounds strangers)- and she made excuses she just didnt feel any chemistry (usually this is just a cover for lack of physical attraction or judgment about where I am in my careefinancially, in my experience- as girls have outright told me if I inquired deeper. Occasionally it's about my being not very funny/ having an awkward sense of humor, or being too eager to do things like hold hands if any of that comes up/ I screw up... I tend not to ask anymore since I know what it really means) after just one date.
Again, the physical isolation is painful. How does anyone date in the midst of this pandemic, aside from dating apps? (which are SUPER unreliable: averaging maybe one date ever 2 months for me, if that: and less with the pandemic... Which only leads to a 2nd date about 6-8% of the time... With numbers like these, you can see why I've always been single!) Does anyone here have anything that's really worked for them?

2020.10.20 00:11 HughEhhoule I'm an Underground Fighter and weird things Happen Around Halloween-Finale 1/2

I can't say this was the worst part of the experience, but I can say with confidence it was a close second place.
When I was a kid I had a friend who's parents were, as we used to say, "old school" today you'd call them abusive.
One day we were talking and he confided something to me. Sometimes the worst part of being abused wasn't the acts themselves.
No, the worst part, to him, was the times after things have simmered down. After the apology, after the broken plates were cleaned up and ice packs applied to black eyes. That sudden switch being flipped, and that person who was a monster an hour ago was suddenly happy, like nothing ever happened.
You, on the other hand are shaken, hurt and angry, but you don't dare share this. You don't want to do anything to break the golden peace that has suddenly descended.
I never really understood what he meant, my home life being pretty standard.
But I do now.
When I saw Harold next it was like nothing ever happened. He even praised my performance, telling me he made a profitable side bet on me because he "knew I'd make it.". I wanted to reach down his throat and rip out a kidney. I wanted to scream at him loud enough to peel the dead flesh from his bones. But I didn't. I smiled, I agreed, and I laughed off the murders of men who may have had their faults, but were close enough to being my friends that they actually showed up no questions asked.
"So, the only fight I need you for is this next one. After that, if you want to opt out you are more than free to do so kid. I'll have plenty of new faces like yours." He says, playfully slapping my face.
His touch makes me want to vomit, but I don't let it show.
"Haven't decided yet honestly, but the money's good, so I think you'll see me around." I lie.
"So what we are looking at is a royal rumble kind of thing. A bunch of guys on your level, give or take, with the last thing standing walking away with a contract and a cool million in cash." Harold grin gives me a flash of him killing the clown and I'm not sure I succeeded in keeping that off my face.
"Don't worry kid, you tap out when you've had enough, and we got half a dozen refs making sure everyone gets out in one piece, you'll be fine." He says, patting me on the shoulder.
I spend a few minutes making small talk and feeling my blood pressure rise. Eventually leaving his office and making my way to the nearest heavy bag. I felt the need to hit something and my only living options were Syz and a mountain of tentacles and eyeballs in the vague shape of a person.
I zone out working the bag, Syz startles me out of my stupor," Time has slipped in quantity, enticing me to entertain the option your hourglass has run out of sand."
"No, I'm fine Syz. " I say curtly. I don't feel like socializing with anything that isn't human at the moment.
"Two fingers of a bitter drink." He says in an offended tone.
I turn to snap and yell some things that would make him give me some space, when someone enters the building that catches my attention.
He's around six feet, probably mid 30s but he's been down a rough road in life. His face has a dozen or so nasty scars and his nose has had plenty of experience in being broken.
He's wearing a white shirt and thick old leather bomber jacket. Faded jeans end in shreds covering his large black boots.
Then I see his eye, a half assed clockwork looking thing that, none the less seems to be tracking along with his other one.
As he walks I hear a distinctive thud as his right leg hits the ground, I can't see anything weird but it does seem to have a shape that is not quite…normal.
"Who's that?" I ask Syz as the guy gives a greeting to Gym and the eyeball thing I never bothered to introduce myself to.
"Friend of a friend, of an enemy, as a friend." He says, happy I'm not giving him the cold shoulder.
"Thank god you cleared that one up for me." I say, straining to hear the conversation between the new guy and Harold.
I'm paranoid, I don't like new faces right now, especially ones with robot bits.
"Syz, can you hear them?" I ask.
Syz doesn't nessecarily answer he just seems to go a bit vacant. Then starts reproducing their conversation, matching the voices of the two men perfectly.
"What the hell do you want now? One favor I owed you, not six."Harold says in an almost pleading tone I've never heard before.
"This isn't a favor, you have a personal stake in this. Baddar managed to find some idiot to summon him here. You remember him right? " the man says.
"And I suppose you had nothing to do with that?" Harold replies.
"Who shit what bed is the important right now. What is, is a malignant you screwed over here in full force." The man continues.
I wave at Syz to indicate I've heard enough. What or whoever they were talking about, thankfully has nothing to do with me.
"So you can do all that, and I've still got to do a word jumble every time we talk?" I say , raising my eyebrow at Syz.
He says nothing, but a grin spreads from ear to ear, revealing rows of small pointed teeth running from his mouth down his throat.
Always has a surprise or two, ol Syz.
For a few days I kept up appearances, training, socializing everything I have been doing. But inside I had a bathtub full to the brim with anxiety, and I was dreading the final drop that would make it spill over.
The night I went to Alex and Buster's apartment I figure I had one more scare before my mind snapped like a dollar store screwdriver.
Normal apartment building, from what Alex told me, but the landlord knew just enough to rent to a few entities now and then, keeping her bank account full with minimal effort.
I'm not a man of taste. I like cheap beer, and when it comes to decor, I tend toward posters I get in cases of said cheap beer. So maybe my opinion doesn't mean much. But as far as it goes the apartment Buster and Alex shared was like something out of an episode of lifestyles of the rich and famous.
No bachelor pad, this was taste beyond my ability and comprehension.
I sat down on a leather couch I guessed was worth more than any car I owned and sat in silence for a while, not exactly knowing why I was called over.
Alex, obviously, broke the silence.
"For your first question, yes. And let's talk no more about it.
For your second, we need to go over a game plan. We don't want any more people getting hurt than absolutely nessecary.
Buster has called in some favors, and a lot of friends of his are going to be in the crowd for when things go down.
Myself and some of the other staff will work to get the crowd somewhere safe, you Terry you are going to keep an eye out for any surprises, stay safe and help where you can.
And no more pursuing this David and goliath thing you seem to have going. If it looks like lovecraft described it after saying how it was indescribable, you are not going to do a damn thing to it.
They have a lot of their meanest bastards coming in for this. And once those cameras show the bloodbath, no human is going to set foot in one of Harold's rings again."
Now, I'd like to point out that I was talking to something I'd likely have just called a chupacabra if I didn't know that any first instinct I have in regards to naming comes off as ignorant.
It's important to note this, because I legitimately jumped at what happened next.
"Immaculate monologue Alex, but maybe Terry would like to talk at some point?" Buster says sitting beside Alex.
He sees me jump and with the same deadpan stare says," I talk when I've something to say.".
"I mean, I kind of have to let you guys take the lead here. I just want to be as far away from this as possible as soon as I can. I've gotta ask though, why do all this for me?" I say hoping not to get any more last starfighter type information.
"It's not for you, though running you through 'Trick or Treat' was just wrong.
A lot of us believe in starting to blend in. But we can't get there by paving the way with corpses. This plan fails, but in a decade or two we try again, without a psychopath at the helm. " Alex answers.
"One thing though. If you see me fighting with a big Australian guy. Don't worry about me wanting a fair fight." I say hoping the situation comes up.
We spent an hour making small talk before I left for the night. As much as I'm glad Syz has my back, he's not the best conversationalist.
The days leading up to the fight blurred together. I trained, as hard as I could, I ate, I slept, but that damocles sword hanging over me made everything unimportant.
The arena was massive, the lighting professional and the crowd easily rivaling any professional fight I've seen.
The spectators roared as the thirty something fighters made their entrance, each trying to claim their share of the fans with slogans, gestures and gimmicks.
The group of athletes were nothing out of a horror movie, at least not a big budget one. Some guys had pointed teeth, were a little tall and looming, or had an extra eye or arm, but by and large the standard human setup was the order of the day.
One stand out was a six and a half foot beast of a guy. Built like a superhero, with bits of what I'm guessing was a welding mask fuses to his face.
One arm was a massive chainsaw, spewing black fumes. He wore a pair of blue overalls with what I wanted to believe we're oil stains.
Just as I get ready to become a member of the brown pants society, the guy detaches the saw, places it under the ring and replaces it with a massive flesh and blood hand that looks to be past its sell by date.
He sees me staring and as we enter the oversized ring he points at me threateningly. I give him a hand wave to convey "nope, not interested." And I see an actual smile spread on his burned scar encrusted lips.
Low and discreet he gives me a thumbs up then points to Syz.
"Syz, I think you have a friend request." I say nodding toward the brute.
They lock eyes, Syz much more willing to take on the walking brick than I am.
A dozen referees make their way into the ring, one grabbing a lowered microphone.
He is a massive, yellow skinned guy, and before you get the wrong idea, i mean the guy was a screaming eye catching yellow and stood over 8 feet. His features, while humanish didn't synch up with any race I'm familiar with.
"Hello fight fans of all ages, types, and species, with a special thank you going out to our first televised human audience.
To go over the rules of tonight's bout, leaving the ring by any means is a disqualification, rising above the ring more than 8 feet, is a disqualification. Any loss of consciousness , or ability to defend yourself is a disqualification, so is any major injury.
No extended clinches or blows to a downed opponent. No ranged anything that can cause damage, no low blows , biting, clawing, gouging, or foul language.
And if any of you have anything you have been keeping hidden, keep it to yourself, any undisclosed ability use will be a disqualification, followed by a lifetime ban.
Let's have a good clean fight fellas." The ref says as he exits the ring.
A massive tolling bell signals the match has started.
Syz and the massive guy both run at each other. Blows start flying before the rest of us really get our bearings.
I'm tackled by a guy who looks like nosferatu melted, we scramble up from the ground and I throw an uppercut that shows me I'm not fighting some kind of ancient bloodsucker. It rocks him, he reels back and spins trying to regain his balance, once he is facing the featureless man behind him said manaquin looking guy hits him with a right cross that sends the not- vampire into a mosh pit of fighters striking out at just about anything.
Syz Flys by me, hit by the overall clad giant. I launch a kick to his knee that hits him unaware, he stumbles and starts to turn, Syz leaps on him like an alley cat and I turn to face a large shirtless bald man with a wicked pointed grin.
I step toward him and his body splits vertically to reveal a massive snapping maw. Instinctively I back away, then stop.
He's psyching me out.
"Go ahead and bite, one less guy to outlast." I say moving forward.
The man laughs with both mouths before a thick muscle bound tongue launches from the maw grabbing me by the neck.
Touche, I find myself thinking as he yanks me forward,slamming my face into the canvas.
He yanks me forward, reeling the tongue in, but I'm ready for that. I propel myself forward , landing a headbutt to his jaw, then two more for good measure.
A ref is in before he hits the mat, removing him from the ring. I find myself proud to have gotten the first k.o. until I look around and see at least ten people missing from the fight already.
As the numbers dwindled the fights got more technical, more cautious. I find myself wondering how I will know when the real show starts and the real blood starts to be spilled.
I didn't need to wonder.
The building went from cheering crowd to dead silence when the first massive burst of red light happened. It left nothing more than a slaughterhouse floor of viscera in the 20 foot area it effected.
A few more of these…bombs? Go off, and the crowd turns from silence to screams. Then there is the sound of gunfire, electricity, and noises I can't even guess as to the source of.
It was clearly SHTF time.
The fighters stand in stunned silence, "Anyone who isn't a psychopath, now is your chance to prove it. Otherwise get the hell out of my way. " I say intending to continue when a high calibre bullet explodes a dinner plate sized chunk of the ring at my feet.
I run and take cover behind the ring for what it's worth, and the majority of the other fighters join me, Syz, as always by my side, looking confused.
"I'm sure you can guess the assholes doing this. I don't have time to explain, but me and my friends saw this coming. We need to get any civilians out, humans, entities, whatever then we can deal with these guys.
And we need the cameras to keep rolling. Big guy, if that saw works I want you on that, you stop anyone trying to shut down the feed. Harold hasn't been honest with you guys about what's happening to my people here. And if you are as pissed about that as I am, this is our chance to stop it." I say this as the massive guy retrieves his weapon. Up close it couldn't me more real.
I survey the scene around me and it is absolute anarchy. Horrors fighting psychopaths, civilians being caught in the crossfire, screams of rage and fear ringing out as loudly as the gunshots.
My rag tag little bunch of misfits starts to break cover, and then we heard it.
It was beautiful at first a melodic sound like birdsong crossed finely crafted bells. A sound that you could feel lift something in the very core of your being.
But as the sound went on it became louder, discordant, sounding like the scream of a murder victim as rendered by a fax machine.
And with an explosive sound, it was there.
I made fun of lovecraft a while back for describing the indescribable nine times out of ten. So I'm going to try not to make that same mistake.
You couldn't see…it, barely an outline of the thing. Your vision erred on the side of caution and spared you seeing whatever it was.
Just a pure black spot with no dimensions like trying to look through a cataract. Never letting you Guage the dimensions of the thing beyond "huge". But you could feel the age, the power, the pure wrongness of the thing like a physical presence.
We keep running, the formless thing starting to snatch anything living it can reach. Something about seeing none of it makes the situation that much worse.
We take shelter behind a thick cement pillar a few rows up, any plan that we may have had evaporating the second that thing showed up.
"What the hell is that?" I scream to the group in general.
"A shadow, what scares us. We don't know much more than they are old, powerful, and want nothing good for the world." The saw wielding entity says.
I look around for Buster and he is no where to be seen.
"And? We don't have a bunch of old, powerful things around here?" I say as a random burst of gunfire hits the pillar.
"You don't fight them, you run. Best we could do is slow it down." The entity replies.
"Nothing can be done?" I say in a panic.
"They discorporate if they are in danger of being seen by a mass of humans with no connection to the void. It's what stops them from just consuming the world. But this place is under a handful of hexes so it can't be noticed by anyone but who Harold and his friends want. " the entity replies.
"How can we stop that" I say, trying to look away from the visual aberration that is consuming humans and entities at its leisure.
"Break enough of the building I guess. Magic is very specific. " he explains.
"Okay, new plan. You guys get everyone possible out. Anyone who isn't stupid enough to be fighting each other get them out.
Syz and I are going to see if we can find anything useful the Heroes brought in and go try and literally blow the roof off of this place. But someone find Buster, if I can't find anything I might just need him to do it." My plan sounds weak, even to me, but it's the best I can come up with.
The group scatters, dodging stray rounds as they sprint to the innocent and the injured.
Syz and I crawl along the floor, searching through piles of sundered heroes for anything we could use. I find a working pistol but nothing that could take out a roof.
I hear a dull crump and am thrown from my feet in a spray of shrapnel. Syz picks me up and starts us running, he points toward the source of the explosion.
My ears ringing, bleeding from a dozen small puncture wounds I see the man. A thick set stub of a man in his late 40s. He wears a military style comoflougue outfit, and is firing into groups of entities with a grenade launcher.
Strapped across his chest are two bandoleers of hand grenades.
He is too distracted with his slaughter, and only notices Syz flying through the air toward him at the last moment. He fires off one last grenade, it sails past my head but explodes far behind me.
I intend to help Syz, but I finally get to see him going no holds barred on a person. Syz did not need my help.
Syz pins the man then pins his wattled neck between his thumb and forefinger tearing it from the man's shoulder as if he was a dandelion. In a blur of motion he relieves him of the grenades and hands them to me.
I think briefly about taking the launcher but decide I'm just as likely to misuse it and enroll both Syz and myself into the red mist society.
I survey the carnage and I can see groups being ushered from the arena, but plenty more dying in gunfights, or dragged to an unknown fate by the shadow.
But something else is bothering me , something is changing the building, colors are getting darker, the walls and floors are starting to develop thick black veins, and the air is starting to reek of ozone and rot.
No time to think about what that may indicate, syz and I run to a stairwell.
A hero and some entity that looks like an overgrown child's toy fall down the stairwell to land in a broken heap on the cold cement.

2020.10.19 00:28 Praws12 I found my biological father and am going to try and meet him. Do I let him know before hand or just show up?

Story time, I'm also not sure if there is a better place for me to post this, but I do want to hear what maybe some of you have done in my position.
I am a 30 year old male and I am the product of a one night stand. My mother met a man in a club/bar, and they hit it off. He was in town on a trip and was leaving the following day. They went back to my mothers place and the man slept over. My mother had work the following morning and although it was only one night. She trusted this man, she mentioned that she had to leave for work but that he could stay as long as he needed. When my mother returned home from work, the man had left a note.
The note essentially said "Thank you for the great night. If you are ever in Australia, here is my address and number". (My mother lives in the U.S.) My mother never contacts him, she never let's him know that I am born. She is worried about an overseas custody battle or any number of factors. She really doesn't know this guy, so she kept it from him.
Years went by, my mother got married and threw away the note. She ended up divorcing the man she married when I was around 10-12 years old. I was aware that the man she divorced was not my father (way before the divorce happened). So I began asking questions about my biological father. My mother told me the story and let me know that she had thrown away the note. I asked her if we could get a private investigator to track him down or something and she shut that down and made it about herself. So I left it alone. All I had was a name and it was a very generic one at that. Basically some "John Smith" type shit.
I didn't think about it much as time went on. It's easy to not think too much about a father figure when you've always been without one. Or so I thought, but once I hit my 20's I started thinking about it again. Then I start seeing stuff for Ancestry and 23 and Me, and start thinking...maybe I could find him.
Finally at 27 years old I start looking. I bring it up to my mother and she wants nothing to do with it. I honestly didn't even believe her story. She seemed so disinterested in me finding him, that I assumed she'd slept with the milk man and was embarrassed or something. So I end up setting up an Ancestry account, 23 and me, family tree DNA, etc. I upload my DNA into like 5-6 different data bases and pay for their full access packages. That way I can find people from all over as opposed to just family in the U.S.
Boom, I get a hit. Not my father but cousins and other family in Australia. Holy shit, my mom wasn't lying. I went from chasing a ghost to maybe finding something. I end up sending messages to the cousins about my situation. All I have is a name but I'm hoping one of them has heard of him, maybe at a family reunion or whatever. Boom again, one of the cousins messages me back and asks for more info on the story and from me. What area of the U.S. dates/times, etc.
We message back and forth and turns out the cousin does know him. The cousin let's my father know of my existence. Obviously he needs to process things. The cousin let's me know and I quote "Your existence has sent shock waves through the family". I'm freaking out but keep my cool and try not to have any expectations. The fact that I found him, made me happy.
More time goes by and the cousin is still being mediator. I have no address, number, or any way of contacting my father. But I had sent all of my info to the cousin to give him. It ends up getting to a point where another cousin that I had contacted, has my fathers email. The cousin with the email asks me if I would like to tell my father something and it'll be passed along. I agree and say "let him know that I am just interested in getting to know my Australian family. I am a grown man and don't expect him to be a dad to me". The message gets passed on and I receive a response.
My father responds saying that he has no interest in corresponding with me. He has a young family of his own now. If they were to find out about me, it could potentially destroy what he has. He also mentioned that he'd left my mother a note. That she could have contacted him and chose not to, that if she would have. It could have altered his life forever (basically punishing me for my mother's choices).
So then the cousin passes that message along and asks if I want my fathers email? I say of course, because this may be my only chance to get to directly contact my father. I send him a massive email. Summing up 28 years of life (at the time). Basically saying that I don't blame him for anything and never have. He had no idea of my existence so it isn't his fault. I did however tell him, that if he chooses not to contact me, I will respect his wishes.
He responds with an even shorter message than his first response. Saying that he has no desire to ever speak/have any contact with me. That he is upset that Ancestry would be so invasive and allow people to track him down, in the way that I did. Blah blah blah
So, finally...we are at the whole entire reason that I am posting this. Although I told him that I would respect his wishes of not contacting me. I can't stop thinking about how I only have ONE LIFE. I have to at least meet him or physically see him in person. He might be an asshole and say horrendous things to me or whatever. I don't care, I get one opportunity at life and I want to make the most of it.
I still communicate with the cousins and so I now know where my father works. I have discussed with them about taking a trip to Australia (most likely next year or so). A trip to meet more of my Australian family and to officially meet the cousins who tracked my father down for me. While I am there, I want to visit my father's work. I want him to see me face to face, and tell me he wants nothing to do with me, like a man. Messaging halfway across the world is one thing, but telling me in person is another.
I saw a video on YouTube where a kid finds his father like I did. He messages his father saying that he wants to meet him. The father declines and says he isn't interested, but then the kid messages his father. He says he is going to be in his father's town at a specific date. The dad ends up showing up and meeting with the son.
So my question is, do I let my father know? Do I tell him, "Hey, I'll be in Australia this month. I'd like to meet". Or do I say "Just letting you know I'm going to be in Australia from this time to this time". Or do I not let him know, and I just randomly show up at his work?
I have tried to see things from his point of view as best I can. I know he still hasn't known of me for a long time. I know it takes time to process things, especially of this magnitude. I am trying my best to not be disrespectful but also selfishly fill my own need/desire to see him in person. Cognitive dissonance at it's best. So please, any fathers or men out there that could help me? Anyone had a similar situation?
TL,DR
Biological father wants nothing to do with me. I want to meet him. Do I let him know before hand? or do I show up unannounced?

2020.10.14 19:04 Halls_of_Durin Aboriginal Archives: Gippsland Massacres and the unnamed dead

Aboriginal Archives: Gippsland Massacres and the unnamed dead
This is the third in a collection of true crime events, by themselves uniquely brutal and investigations themselves unquestionable, yet quietly set aside by the local public servants - be they police, justice workers, and others.
Note: This story contains the names and descriptions of deceased Aboriginal persons.
This series of crimes is not unique, but I think provides an illustrative example. Additionally, this is relating to a series of historical criminal events. The details are intentionally scarce as the perpetrators were worried about convictions so did not keep many records. The accounts of events from the local population were limited to those of the settlers.

The rolling green hills of Gippsland, Victoria [N1]
The Gunai/Kurnai people
The Gunai/Kurnai, formerly called the Gunai or Kurnai, is an Aboriginal Australian nation of south-east Australia. This post will refer to them as the Gunai Kurnai people. Their territory occupies most of present-day Gippsland and much of the southern slopes of the Victorian Alps. This land runs along the coast of southern Victoria, home to stunning old growth forests in East Gippsland and noted for its modern agriculture. Gippsland was a true Garden of Eden for European settlers. However, the Gunai Kurnai people were well established there. With about 4000 persons before European settlement Gippsland was more densely populated than many other areas.
Context
In the mid-1990s, there was a so-called culture war (the "history wars") within the halls of Australian historic academia [N2]. This was a fierce debate driven by a bone of contention - it was a long-held, deeply believed myth that Australia was a county where explanation into Abogional lands was a largely peaceful one. During that time even calculating the number of Aboriginal dead was seen as a controversial attempt at changing history and assigning blame needlessly. When Australian history began to develop as its own area of interest in the 1950s there was little to no attention paid to Aboriginal Australian history; at best it was a backdrop to the European experience and at worst of a fluke of perpetuation by unusually clever beasts.Now there is a map available showing the locations of the Colonial Frontier Massacres from 1780 to 1930 [N3].
Note that on Tasmania the native Palawa is fully extinct, as is their language and culture: in 1803 there was an estimated 3,000 to 15,000 people but within thirty years there was just 47. The final death keel came where the last 400 persons were incarcerated in camps where most died from a toxic mixture of malnutrition and disease. Some current descendants of Palawa women and European men refer to themselves as Aboriginal Tasmanians.
A picture of the last four Palawa c. 1860s. Truganini, the last to survive, is seated at far right. [N4]
The Accused

One of six historical bronze figures, McMillan is represented by a coat of arms, Scottish thistle, and two human skulls in a saddlebag. By Annemieke Mien, 1986. [N5]
Angus McMillan, such a famed explorer that his cairn lists the sites he discovered, is also a notable mass murderer. He led many of the Gippsland massacres a ten year period starting in 1940 that killed or displaced the Gunai Kurnai. Born on the Isle of Skye, Scotland McMillan migrated to Australia in 1838; by the time of the Warrigal Creek Massacre he was entrenched in pastoral activities, leading many of the assaults on the Gunai Kurnai. Presently, nineteen monuments honouring McMillian exist in Gippsland, his homestead was preserved then moved to its current location at the open-air museum Old Gippstown. The federal seat was named after him in 1948. The Federal Division of McMillan was renamed Division of Monash in 2018.
Captain William Dana was born in England into a family of notable military experience. He established the Native Police Corps in what would become Victoria. He was also responsible for the Barmah Lake and Snowy River massacres. The Corps is considered reasonable for 125 deaths over two decades. Dana was notable for refusing to arrest Aboriginal people, preferring to have them shot.
The reports on Barmah Lake do not list any official deaths. Instead, an unofficial verbal report made to GA Robinson by a man only referred to as Allen made the following statement:
...a number of men also women were shot by Dana's party at the Murry [sic] and children were knocked on the head with carrabines [sic]. They first sent out a party to look for the natives and then went and planted themselves in a scrub and sent two or three troopers to round or drive them like sheep to be large party carrelled; then they commenced firing and shot some of them in the river. Dana told me he had a brush with the natives. He went to the Murry [sic] by the Campaspe and returned said 20 men, one woman, five children were shot. Kelsh's overseer told me that he, Dana, said he would turn the natives out. (Robinson 5 Jan 1844). [N6]
The Deaths

October–December 1840: Nuntin Station
In October 1840, squatter Angus McMillan brought down cattle from Numblamungie to the stock run at Nuntin in Gippsland. He left his men in charge there and on his return some weeks later they told him that the Kurnai had scattered the stock and attacked them. McMillan gathered his stockmen together, and massacred any Kurnai [possibly Gunnai or Tatungalung or Braiakaulung speakers] at Boney Point on the confluence of the Avon and Perry Rivers. McMillan admitted to this incident in a letter to Lieutenant Governor La Trobe on August 25, 1853. When G.A. Robinson travelled through this area in 1844, he saw many human bones and skulls along the shores of Lake Wellington. Historian P. D. Gardner considers that at least 15-20 Aborigines were killed. Total: 20
22 December 1840: Boney Point

In July 1843, Ronald Macalister, nephew of squatter Lachlan Macalister, was murdered by Brataualang Aborigines, near Port Albert. An avenging party of 20 horsemen, known as 'The Highland Brigade' was organised by Angus McMillan, Lachlan Macalister's former overseer, to look for the killer. The 'brigade' was 'sworn to secrecy'. They went on a five days rampage, killing over 150.

IN-DEPTH:
Box’s Creek Massacre
In 1841 some thirty Kurnai were murdered by European settlers at Box’s Creek (also known as Butcher’s Creek). They were pursued in retaliation for allegedly spearing cattle and trapped on a peninsula of land at Bancroft Bay by an armed party of twelve. On that strip of land, hemmed by endless water, they were slaughtered.
Warrigal Creek Massacre
In July 1843, Ronald Macalister, nephew of squatter Lachlan Macalister, was murdered by Brataualang Aborigines, near Port Albert. According to G.A. Robinson he was murdered after some depraved white men, had, in a fit of drunkenness, 'shot and killed some friendly natives.' An avenging party of 20 horsemen, known as 'The Highland Brigade' was organised by Angus McMillan, Ronald Macalister's former overseer, to look for the killer. The 'brigade' was 'sworn to secrecy' and they appear to have set out on a five day rampage attacking 4 Aboriginal campsites.
After slaughtering about 75 at Warrigal Creek Waterhole and a further 25 at Warrigal Creek mouth, they then shot down another family group of 25 at Freshwater Creek, before moving on to Gammon Creek. In reviewing every known account of the massacre in 2001, Peter Gardiner considers that Gammon Creek was the last in the rampage and that 25 Kurnai were slaughtered and human bones later found. In all 150 Kurnai were killed in the 5-day rampage across 4 sites. The rampage would fit the criteria of 'genocidal massacre'. In reviewing every known account of the rampage in 2001, Peter Gardner considers Warrigal Creek mouth was the second campsite where 25 Aboriginal people were killed.
Afterwards, McMillan kept a hessian bag of human skulls for some time after the event.
Human bones have been found at the site on several occasions. Total: 150
The White Woman of Gippsland
A rumour around the area led to the repeated abuse of Gunai Kurnai by local pastoral settlers. They thought that a white woman had been kidnapped and was being held and raped by locals of Gippsland. Repeated raids were held based on the discovery of woman's undergarments and the assumption that survivors of a shipwreck in 1836 made it to shore. The white men...
"They also carried a number of handkerchiefs, with the following notice printed in English and Gaelic:
"WHITE WOMAN."
There are 14 armed men in search of you. Be cautious and rush to them when you see them near you. Be particularly on the look-out every dawn of morning. For then the party are in hopes of rescuing you. The white settlement is towards the setting sun.
Possibly this is the only instance of Gaelic having been used officially in Victoria, the reason being the supposed loss of a ship in Bass Straits with a number ol' Highland immigrants, many of whom at that period were unacquainted with English.
The expedition succeeded in taking prisoner the woman's supposed captor, Bunjaleena. But, although he was imprisoned and not released until he undertook to deliver her up, that wily individual only appears to have led the police a succession of wild goose chases. One interesting find they made, however, was the figurehead of a small vessel. It was the bust of a woman. The blacks carried it aboutwith them, and appeared to hold it in great reverence, for it was only obtained from them with the greatest difficulty.
The late Mr. Allan McLean always expressed himself as having been very doubtful of a white woman ever having been with the Gippsland blacks, asserting that the figurehead secured by the third expedition was the fonset orgio of the various reports. How he held this view it is hard to conceive, for on October 29, 1847, only four miles away from Tyers' Camp, a native trooper found the dead body ofa white woman and a half-caste child. The following day Angus McMillan held an inquiry, but nothing was found by which the unfortunate's identity could be established." [N8]
It's been suggested that the figurehead is the most likely theory as to the rumours of the White Woman of Gippsland and the repeated raids were driven by hysteria. Total: 50
[N9]
In 1846 Gippsland squatter Henry Meyrick wrote in a letter home to his relatives in England:
The blacks are very quiet here now, poor wretches. No wild beast of the forest was ever hunted down with such unsparing perseverance as they are. Men, women and children are shot whenever they can be met with … I have protested against it at every station I have been in Gippsland, in the strongest language, but these things are kept very secret as the penalty would certainly be hanging … For myself, if I caught a black actually killing my sheep, I would shoot him with as little remorse as I would a wild dog, but no consideration on earth would induce me to ride into a camp and fire on them indiscriminately, as is the custom whenever the smoke is seen. They [the Aborigines] will very shortly be extinct. It is impossible to say how many have been shot, but I am convinced that not less than 500 have been murdered altogether. [N10]

2020.10.13 21:00 DeanG1 October 19th 2020 W.H.O, ‘surprise announcement’ of a second wave. Prepare for round 2.

Global events in relation to the 11th March 2020 W.H.O. announcement of a pandemic, 2020, and the inevitable second wave announcement on:
October 19th 2020.
Edit: I did a video with most of these in. Uploaded to the still uncensored platform brandnewtube. Link here:
https://brandnewtube.com/v/ObV7Mm
This date was easily ascertained as the 11th March 2020 announcement was exactly 222 months after 9/11. So surely they wouldn’t just add 222 days to that to get to 19th October 2020 would they? Yes, yes they would is the answer.
During the text, when you see the number ‘113’, this can mean ’11 x 3’ = 33, or 11th March 2020, which is the date that the W.H.O declared phase 1 of this totally unplanned global pandemic.
It’s worth noting that when you see ‘116’ this is often coded as an upside down 911. Also, the English ordinal gematria value of ‘19th October’ is 116. The English ordinal gematria of ‘19 October’ is 88.
You’ll notice the usual numbers, 11, 22, 33, 88, 96, 666, 911, 116 etc. You know the ones, the fun ones, the ‘we are evil Sith lords and belong to a serious club of powerful dark people who shut down economies and inflict pain on kids’ numbers. Those numbers.
Some of these dates/events have probably been left as ‘conspiracy candy’ to find (because they are really funny as well as evil these folk). Example, the Bill Gates patent WO/2020/060606 (666), which was registered on March 26th 2020.
Excuse any errors. There will be lots of other events I know. The number of days between that are noted include the end date unless specified.
Please note, I am not an expert on Gematria which will be apparent. I have looked into psyops for years and know the usual ‘wet bandits calling card numbers’. 666 was a bit spooky when I saw the Omen aged 8, it’s a bit naff now. Some people seem to be REALLY into them though, I mean actually ‘sitting round a table and planning global events stroking long haired cats’ level of into numbers. All that stuff bores me, I just see the patterns and numbers, it’s a fun Autistic trait I have that bores others shitless.
A couple might seem tenuous, stick with it though, there are some obvious ones.
Below are the dates of events and days between pandemic announcement dates. The W.H.O. 11th March 2020 one and the totally unscripted announcement upcoming one on:
Monday 19th October 2020:
It’s worth pointing out that the last ‘pandemic’ was in 1918, the first confirmed cases of the Spanish Flu in the US are reported at Fort Riley, Kansas on: 11th March 1918 (11/3 33 113)
Moving on a few decades….
Monday, October 19th 1987: this was the day now referred to as ‘Black Monday’, this was famous financial crash that wiped 22% of the stock market. This was 33 years exactly (excluding the end date) before the proposed date of October 19th 2020.
11th March 2004: The Madrid train bombings. 199 months, 9 days (666) including before 19th October 2020
Thursday, 28 April 2016: Western African Ebola virus epidemic. “last case tested negative on 28 April 2016 in Monrovia” 3 years, 10 months, 13 days (113) before 11th March 2020
Thursday, 9 June 2016: The last flare up of Ebola in the Western African Ebola virus epidemic. 4 years and 4 months (44), and 11 days before 19th October 2020. *There are a lot more of the Ebola ones, this was all programming for the main crappy event we are now in. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Western_African_Ebola_virus_epidemic
June 1st, 2016: Gotthard Train Tunnel’s weird and crappy opening ceremony. “Switzerland unveiled the world’s longest and deepest railroad tunnel with a ceremony that was supposed to look deeply occultist, satanic and spooky, but just looked silly and daft,” https://www.bilan.ch/opinions/garry-littman/switzerland_gateway_to_the_alps_and_gateway_to_hell This was 3 years, 9 months, 11 days (911) before 11th March 2020 Also it was 4 years, 4 months (44) and 19 days before 19th October 2020. 19 is a number which represents surrender apparently, link below explaining that.
Also just pointing out that March 11th 2011 was also the date of the Japan tsunami and ensuing Fukushima nuclear incident, 9 (3x3) years exactly before March 11th 2020 (I’m not claiming this event was manufactured, I’m just noting the date)
May 15th 2018: This was the date of the prophetic Clade X pandemic training exercise, at the Johns Hopskins University, preparing for the simulated events we are currently going through. This was 666 days before March 11th 2020, and 888 days before October 19th 2020 (excluding end date) Also, it was 88 weeks before the first Travel-related Case of 2019 Novel Coronavirus Detected in United States Tuesday, January 21st 2020.
11th Jan 2017: Fauci says oddly “No doubt Trump will face surprise infectious disease outbreak during his presidency” 3 years, 2 months, 1 day to 11th March 2020 (Countdown 3—2—1) 3 years, 9 months, 9 days or 196 weeks and 6 days (666) before 19th October 2020
October 18th 2019: This was the date of the next fortunate pandemic training exercise for global representatives, called ‘Event 201’. An event training for events very very similar to the ones we are going through now, almost as if they knew it was coming. The time between this exercise and the date of the first travel-related case of 2019 novel coronavirus detected in United States - Tuesday, January 21, 2020 was: This was 3 months and 3 days (33) OR excluding end date 96 days. (96 = Satanism in English ordinal gematria) This was also exactly 1 month before the Sunday, 17 November 2019 before the amended first infection date, and also 1 month, 13 (113) days before the Sunday, 1 December 2019 initial first reported infection date (both linked below)
November 7th 201: Bill Gates’s prophetic ‘EXPLAINED’ episode premiered on Netflix. “Explained looks at the looming danger of global pandemic.” Released 11 months, 13 days (1113) before 19th October 2020
November 21st 2019: 22 killed in displacement camp in an attack by Syrian government in Idlib province. 111 days before March 11th 2020 333 days before October 19th 2020
December 19th 2018: Ebola outbreak. The W.H.O. announced Over 300 people have died of Ebola in the Democratic Republic of Congo. (CNN) Also President Donald Trump announces victory over the Islamic State and planned withdrawal of US troops from Syria. This was 1 year, 2 months, 22 days before March 11th 2020 (222) 1 year, 10 months, 1 day before October 19th 2019 (111) Excluding end date this is also exactly 22 months before October 19th 2020
December 19th 2019: Australian Bush fires are officially declared an national emergency: “December 19th 2019 Australian state of New South Wales announces 7-day state of emergency amid extreme heat and over 100 bushfires that have burnt for two months.”
2 months, 22 days before March 11th 2020 (222) This date is 10 months and 1 days (11) before October 19th 2020
1st December 2019: This was initially reported as the date of first infection which was, 3 month and 11 days (113) to 11 March 2020 ALSO 10 months and 19 days (1019) before the next announcement on Oct 19th *incidentally, just digressing to the multitude of entertain productions that are also tied in with these dates, the Walking Dead premier date to the date for the first infection was: 9 years, 1 month and 1 day. 911. Coincidence of course. There are 100’s more of these though, they at least try to be ‘fun’ whilst damaging children globally.
The news then later reported that the first case was: 17th November 2019. Which is 116 days before 11th March 2020 AND 11 months, 3 days (113) before 19th Oct 2020
Bot the above dates are reported here: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/ma13/first-covid-19-case-happened-in-november-china-government-records-show-report https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Severe_acute_respiratory_syndrome_coronavirus_2 )
12 December 2019: The United Kingdom general election. 13 weeks before 11th March 2020 44 weeks and 4 days (444) before 19th October 2020 (excluding end date)
January 22nd 2020: Netflix released a very well timed mini-series documentary called: “Pandemic: How to Prevent an Outbreak.” This was 1 month, 19 days before March 11th 2020 (911) Also, this was released 96 days after the Event 201 training exercise (Satanism is 96 is English Gematria, Satan is the guy who sings in the Southpark film) Which was also released 1 year, 1 month, 16 days (1 116) after May 15th, 2018 Clade-x training exercise.
Sunday, January 26th 2020: Kobe Bryant dies in helicopter crash: Kobe Bryant has a value in English Ordinal Gematria of 113 (March 11th, 33) 13 days later on Friday, February 7th 2020 private service was held in the father-daughter pair’s honour in ‘Corona’ Del Mar, California, 33 days later was March 11th and W.H.O. announcement of global pandemic. (NOTE: I’m not claiming this event was a hoax or intentional, there are some odd things about the reports in terms of the chopper model though. I’m just noting the strange coincidences with the dates and ceremony venue name of ‘Corona’)
Monday, 24th February 2020: Kobe Bryant ceremony, 2 weeks and 2 days (22) before March 11th 2020 (excluding end date) Public tribute held at Los Angeles’ Staples Centre, where Kobe played during his 20-year athletic career with the Los Angeles Lakers.
Saturday, 29th February 2020: First coronavirus associated death in the USA. “Health officials in Washington state said on Saturday a coronavirus patient has died, marking the first death in the U.S. from COVID-19, the illness associated with the virus.” 11 days before March 11th 2020: 33 weeks and 3 days (333) before Oct 19th 2020.
THEN the 11th March 2020 W.H.O. announcement of a global pandemic, a time when 97% of people still actually believed the news was real and so started shopping wearing surgical equipment.
March 26th 2020: Bill Gates registered WO/2020/060606. The patent application was filed on April 22nd 2019 AND on June 20th 2019, this was by Microsoft Technology Licensing, LLC. The title of the patent is "Cryptocurrency system using body activity data". (I personal think this is left as a DBA strategy, discredit by association, to make conspiracy theorists sound more nuts, maybe it’s real though, wouldn’t surprise me if it was)
3 dates here: April 22nd 2019, June 20th 2019 and March 26th 2020 April 22nd 2019 to the June 20th 2019 is 1 month, 30 days (13) April 22nd 2019 to March 11th 2020 = 10 months, 19 days (1019 = October 19th) March 11th 2020 to March 26th 2020 = 2 weeks and 2 days (22)
June 28th 2020: This the day of another U.S. mass shooting, 9 (3 x 3) people killed. This was 110 days after 11th March 2020 (11) and 113 days BEFORE October 19th 2020 “Lone gunman attacks offices of Capital Gazette newspaper in Annapolis, Maryland, killing nine”
August 3rd 2020: 77 days before October 19th 2020 (or 11 weeks and 1 day end day included) was hurricane Isaias (Isaias in full reduction gematria is 22) “Hurricane Isaias makes landfall in the US as a Category 1 hurricane near Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina” *not making claims about weather manipulation, I haven’t looked into it, juts noting the date.
18th September 2020: 3 weeks and 3 weeks (33) before October 19th 2020 BBC news alert and breaking news. “Covid UK seeing second wave says Boris Johnson” Shock! (Pre-programming by numbers for the 19th Oct shit show)
21st Sept 2020: UK BBC Breaking news alert. Possible doubling of infections. Covid-19: UK faces 50,000 cases a day by October without action 696 hours before 19th October 2020 The Gematria value of 696 is ‘Secret Order of Illuminati’ (apparently it is anyway, I don’t like using the word Illuminati, I am sure the the hard men WANT to be called that, wankers will do)
October 1st 2020: The inevitable ‘Trump gets Covid story’ 33 days before the Nov 3rd (113) election. To be fair they couldn’t make it more obvious. *He the the latest in a long list of world leaders and dignitaries to get Covid, astonishingly large odds of this happening, will list the ones my friend found underneath these dates.
October 6th 2020: 13 days before 19th October 2020 Bill Gates uploads a shit PR video called ‘Bill Gates’s Heroes in the field, Dr. Firdausi Qadri’ to his Youtube channel, which as you’ll see from the video I linked below, he often codes the dates 11th March 2020 and 19th October 2020, just to be sinister and cryptic, as well as a dick. This is a link to a video I made showing all the dates he coded, this is on YouTube channe https://youtu.be/rGty2hsqeK4 This is probably the best evidence of both these dates being coded in. It was uploaded to Brandnewtube and had thousands of views, but the site has been hacked now and I can’t access it. *It’s clear that the uncensored platform is on a take down list.
October 11th 2020: 1 week and 3 days (13) before 19th October 2020 “W.H.O. Condemns Coronavirus Lockdowns.” This is shameless blatant spin create the illusion of care and rationality before the 19th October 2020, don’t fall for it, they tell fibs.
THEN THE OCTOBER 19th 2020 W.H.O. ANNOUNCEMENT DATE FOR STAGE 2 OF THE TOTALLY UNPLANNED GLOBAL PANDEMIC PSYOP. Shock, horror, gasp!
Then on we go to November 3rd 2020: The US Election which just happens to be 2 weeks and 2 days after October 19th. (22)
END.(more fun to follow)
Then onward into a Brave New World we go…
This is in honour of the world leaders and royalty who all caught covid as bravely fought back:
“THE PRESIDENT OF THE USA contracted the ugly COVID virus - but is now fully recovered.
THE PRIME MINISTER OF THE UNITED KINGDOM contracted the ugly COVID virus - but is now fully recovered.
THE PRESIDENT OF BRAZIL contracted the ugly COVID virus - but is now fully recovered.
PRINCE CHARLES of the ROYAL FAMILY contracted the ugly COVID virus - but is now fully recovered.
PRINCE ALBERT OF MONACO contracted the ugly COVID virus - but is now fully recovered.
FORMER PRESIDENT OF ITALY Silvio Berlusconi contracted the ugly COVID virus (age 84), who is now fully recovered.
THE WIFE OF CANADA'S PRESIDENT Justin Trudeau contracted the ugly COVID virus, who is now fully recovered.
And now they are saying that the PRESIDENT OF BURUNDI (who dared oppose the Covid scam and kicked out of his country the W.H.O. representatives) "probably died with Covid" – same with former PRESIDENT OF INDIA, Pranab Mukherjee.
What are the odds?”
Questioning Covid-19 websites, just in case anyone is any doubt this is all bollocks.

2020.10.12 13:43 newuser20202020 Legal and moral obligation of Tinder to vet rapists

I've been thinking of the legal and moral obligation of dating apps like Tinder. Out of all the dating apps on the market, Tinder makes the most profit.
An Australian judge said that Tinder was fertile ground for rapists, and that he was surprised that Tinder allow men with a history of sexual violence to be allowed on the platform. (One scrote was convicted of rape several times. He met 4 out of 6 victims on Tinder).
I think that Tinder should actually implement a condition of use, that criminal histories such as sexual assault will be sought by the dating platform. It's incredible that Tinder shirk all liability and responsibility. Again, the victim is blamed.
These predators quickly umatch victims on Tinder. The entire history is deleted, leaving victims with little evidence to report to the police.
Apart from abstaining from Tinder, what checks and balances do you think that the company should have? They make a massive profit and then wipe their hands clean.

2020.10.09 18:15 MinionBanana37 Survivor: The Amazon Review

I just finished Survivor: The Amazon. Let’s talk about it.

The Tribes: The men are some of the most cocky people I’ve ever seen on Survivor. They were talking about how great they are, and how much the women are probably struggling. The women are fine, but I think the hot girls can be a little cliquish. The twist is a good one, and I think it should be used more.
The Challenges: They were fine. The one challenge I did have a problem with was the one where they had to bite off the meat and weigh it. That challenge is disgusting.

Now, let’s get to the cast.

Ryan: He seemed just another person on Survivor for fame and not the game. I just remember him and Daniel having fun.

Janet: She seemed fine. She got screwed over by a granola bar. That’s really it.

Daniel: Who?

JoAnna: I think she was cast to be similar to Vecepia, which is good that they weren’t straight up casting black women for the angry black woman stereotype. Her not wanting the idol in the camp because of it being religious is so ridiculous, and she went overboard with the ”sacredness” of the game. They were just using the idol as a symbol of protection, and her thinking its a religious idol is gold. She was one of the better people cast.

Jeanne: Don’t remember her at all besides getting screwed over by Heidi. She seems fine though.

Shawna: The first of the hot girls gone, and I was fine with it. She basically said that she was okay with being voted out, and Rob freaking out of it is funny. I really only got to see her after Alex came, and she wasn’t great. She’s the weakest player out of the hot girls, and I’m glad she went out where she did instead of a Deena or Matthew. She’s ok.

Roger: Hate him. His opinions on gay rights and women is degrading to say the least. Simply, he’s a dick. Saying that he doesn’t like gay people and saying that sex is only for a man and a woman is a terrible moral and social standpoint. He deserved to go when he did.

Dave: I only remember him for picking out the tribes and thinking Jenna’s butt was hot. Seems more like a fame not game type of Survivor.

Deena: On of the best players on the season, and would’ve gotten farther had Rob not flipped. She definitely has a strategic mind for the game is probably Top 3 players this season. Deena has a good personality as well, and I would love to see a Deena return.

Alex: He was fine. Out of the alliance of Alex, Jenna, Heidi, and Rob I was happy to see him go first out of them. He seems like one of those friends that your dad has but you don’t connect with. He’s fine, and that’s about it.

Christy: I love her. Partially has to be because of how relatable she is. As a partially deaf person myself, I loved that they cast some more diversity on the cast. She was a fun person, and I would love to see a return. We need more hearing impaired people on Survivor.
Heidi: She was fun, and probably had one of the most memorable personalities on the season. I find it...interesting that she has the highest IQ of anyone on the cast. Her jury question was something, and she’s an overall fun character. We need her back.
Butch: I hate his dancing. He dances like a seagull that had too much to drink. That’s it.
Rob: I lost some respect for him after him being a bitter juror and not acknowledging that he was outplayed. He’s a good player, but I think he’s overrated as one of the best players. I’d put Kathy‘s game on the same level as his.

Mateo: He’s delusional. He seems like a mad scientist. No game really, he just sharpened his machete for 39 straight days.

Jenna: I think of a Jenna as an OG Parvati. She was the first person to be the flirt, and she was good at it. I like her as winner, and she deserved it.

Ranking The Winners:
  1. Tina
  2. Brian
  3. Jenna
  4. Vecepia
  5. Richard
  6. Ethan

Ranking The Seasons
  1. The Amazon
  2. Thailand
  3. Africa
  4. Australian
  5. Marquesas
  6. Borneo

Side note: Ethan and Amber here seems like when they were dating. I wonder how Amber feels about this reunion now, since Ethan and Jenna dated. Rich here is a nice touch too.

2020.10.09 12:30 WroughtIronHare I'm [31 F] seeking advice for saying no nicely to MIL [63 F] about taking care of BIL [33M]

Edit: TL; DR: MIL decided that my fully functioning BIL needs a full time carer and expected my husband and now me to give up our lives to be said carer. BIL is an arse and can look after himself but wants someone to take care of him forever.
I've written this out so many times and trashed it and sometimes trashed my account for good measure. Things have relaxed a lot but I'm nervous that they will start back up again sometime next year and want to be prepared to reject any family obligations MIL tries to foster on to me, but I suppose I also just wanted to vent and gain some perspective and see how others may have dealt with similar incidents. I carry a lot of anger about this, not all of it warranted, or directed at the right person, as you'll see below, and I want to be able to say no in a firm but polite way when ATM every time I think about it I feel that anger coming back and know that if she did ask I would either swear or verbally attack her and maybe BIL, which wouldn't be helpful.
Also, *trigger warning*: I mention SIL's DV issues in passing. I want everyone to know that this is historic only. She has finally left the arsehole and he went to prison! It was complicated and even after what had happened between SIL and arsehole he was granted supervised contact with NIL with his mother who SIL didn't trust, which was one of SIL's greatest fears and a reason she didn't leave sooner, but he buggered that up being his stupid self and now SIL and NIL are no contact with him and moving on with their lives.
My MIL is obsessed with my BIL needing to be taken care of. She herself comes from a very abusive background and takes care of two of her brothers, one of which has an extremely low IQ and epilepsy due to a brain injury and one which may have developmental delay but, due to his abusive background, probably missed a lot of diagnostic opportunities and support opportunities. In fact, none of MIL's siblings have come out unscathed and many have trouble in the adult world. And to make sense of that and retain some control over her life MIL has become Ms Fix It.
My MIL's coping mechanism has been a mix of planning and martyrdom, which, again, given the circumstances is fair. What hasn't been fair though is her projecting all this on to her children. My BIL had breathing difficulties as a baby, stopped breathing a few times actually, and did not meet his milestones as early as she expected (but within normal parameters). As far as I can tell this is what led her to decide that my BIL was special needs and needs someone to take care of him forever.
The issue being of course that MIL won't be here forever.
SIL was about a decade older than the boys but seems like the forgotten child that got the hell out ASAP so I'm not sure of her story in as far as it relates to all this but MIL's first attempt that I know of at forging a replacement carer for BIL was my dear husband, BIL's younger brother, who seems to have been conceived immediately after BIL's breathing difficulties and milestone delays were noticed. Hubby was supposed to be a girl, to the point where they didn't even have a boy name picked out for him and he now kind of shares a name with MIL because she was just so flabbergasted she couldn't think of anything else. Think Anne and Andy. After hubby she had an emergency hysterectomy so I'm not sure if she would have tried again.
What I do know is that hubby was brought up with the constant refrains of "your brother is special," "you need to take care of your brother, " "you two need to take care of each other," etc. to the point that MIL wouldn't support Hubby moving out unless BIL came with him and fully expected anything he bought or rented to also be in BIL's name even if it was bought on hubby's savings only.
When BIL wasn't making friends and getting bullied in his school Hubby threw away the gifted school he was in to go be his older brother's friend in the other school. I feel like any normal parent would have said "no way, stay in school. I'll go parent my other child. I'm happy that you love your brother this much but don't throw away this opportunity!" but MIL didn't. She reinforced how hubby should be taking care of his brother. That's his duty. What if hubby also got bullied!? I feel so bad for my husband that he doesn't even realise this.
He had, and still carries, so much depression and anxiety over his role as his brother's keeper. Even in his late twenties he didn't want to move out because he would have to be the full time carer for his brother. This is where I found out about MIL's plan for them to live together. TBH it's also why I didn't consider him a dating option at that point even though he was the sweetest, most caring person, because he was so miserable with the only life option his mother let him believe was available to him. But hubby's mental state isn't important to MIL. He's the demon child of the family for her getting an emergency hysterectomy and doing small child nonsense like wondering off when he was under five.
Only BIL is special and in need of care.
But BIL is being abused as well in this case.
From my perspective this dude is in his mid thirties with a full time job. He takes holidays by himself overseas (pre covid) and can plan, budget and have a social life online. He participates in two RPG groups and is currently in one podcast that has gone on for over a year. He doesn't have many friends locally but so? He's gone out and found international friends that share his interests. He finished a year of university but decided it wasn't for him. He does get depressed but decided by himself to go get some counselling and as far as I can tell follows their advice. He also has an arm injury from high school bullies which affects his quality of life, especially when it pains him, but doesn't stop him from attending his activities of daily living or his ability to retain employment.
There is no concrete reason that I can see that he needs to be taken care of.
But if you ask an indoctrinated hubby, BIL can't budget, can't do basic things like keep his room clean, is totally dependant on others and needs a full time carer. These days not so much. But before my husband would seriously tell you that you couldn't see BIL's floor despite showing you BIL's room with a clearly visible floor and that it was stinky and had dead animals in it (no odor noticed, crowded but neat room) and that if it wasn't it was all thanks to MIL who would sporadically clean it. If it wasn't for MIL BIL would never attend to any form of hygiene and needs prompting at all times to attend basic personal hygiene.
Husband has over all stopped saying all this, because if you ask him what dead animals, how many, how long ago, how often does MIL clean his room past bringing in his laundry or any questions which require a concrete answer he realises that he doesn't have one except that an animal may have died in it once because it was smelly and MIL complained so she cleaned it some vague time in the past thirty years. Then why does he need a full time carer?
The view that BIL needed help was hugely entrenched in my husband for a long while and was one of the reasons I was holding off marriage and children for so long. We're there now, but I remember how stressed and suffocated I felt in our living in sin period when my husband would tell me things like if he ever died he would give the car to my BIL even if I was pregnant because even then he, a person with his own car, with a full time job and two parents with a full time job that paid the majority of his bills would need it more and that I was stronger than BIL so I could survive. He didn't get it until I told him that if we were married and MIL and FIL (who is basically mute except for a few eye rolls on all topics related to BIL and finance!) left everything to BIL I would be taking him to court for it as husband's spouse and getting what was rightfully ours and offer to do the same for NIL and SIL. I certainly wasn't going to let BIL into my house to have first pick of husband's possessions (because BIL would enjoy them more and it would be better for BIL to have them obviously) and if he didn't like that he could pack up home and find someone who did want him to give up his entire life savings to BIL.
He's better now, but it's still shocking that he didn't even think he, his one day wife, his sister and his niece, who were going though DV issues, or possible unborn children's needs could ever outweigh the all consuming needs of BIL.
And this is where I have a lot of hate for BIL. I try to understand that he himself was also subject to this abuse that he has also internalized. He has an entitled attitude built from decades of being told that someone will always take care of you (because you can't take care of yourself). But argh I can't stand him. I bite my tongue a lot because I know that some of it isn't his fault but can't help but see a mid thirties man child who is content to wait for mummy to organise his next carer instead of taking the chance to leave the nest. Looking at myself, I know some of this is transference because I myself was abused and took too long to realise and gain independence. Hence, apart from looking to rant and release, I am looking for outside perspectives. That said, please let me rant a bit more.
Once replacement one left the nest to be with me and requested that we don't take BIL despite having a spare room (which surprised me) MIL was desperate to find a back up plan. She decided, and I'm not sure how much input FIL actually gave despite this heavily involving him, that the whole family was going to move to another state (leaving us and SIL who was going through DV issues and needed MIL and FIL to take care of NIL when things got really bad. I would have been happy to take NIL but it was a difference between a five minute and fifty minute commute to come get her, which is 45 minutes too long in an emergency) so that they could live with and take care of FIL's father. The plan was that once they lived in the house they would simply stay after GFIL passed away and then leave it and GFIL's entire inheritance to BIL and all FIL's siblings wouldn't niblings would accept it because they would all obviously understand that BIL needed it more because, according to hubby, that's just how his family was. People in his family don't look to get theirs but understand that some people need it more than others and were willing to let that happen. We were having a lot of arguments about this and BIL's future inheritance at this time and I told him that he was an idiot and that you can't base need on what his mother thought and that other people have other needs and that he has been very wrong about his family before.
As they were emotionally preparing for this move, discussing with work when transfers could be made etc. GFIL passed away. FIL's siblings did not in fact understand that BIL needed it more and therefore was entitled to it. Neither did GFIL's on and off again girlfriend who it seems was still on the deed to the house. And so the meager inheritance was split four different ways after funeral costs and the house went to the girlfriend. Selfishly no one gave up their inheritance to BIL, preferring to spend it on their own needs or give it to their own children perhaps?
After BIL realised hubby was no longer going to take care of him (though did ask like a sook "what about me?" to him when he found out my own brother occasionally lived with us for a few days every now and then when he was in our city for events) and that the back up plan of mooching off grandpa was no longer on the table he changed. At first it was increasing hostility towards me and passive aggression, then when that didn't work he turned into this... IDK how to describe it better than pitiful creature. A creature who slumps to the point he looks ten cm shorter, can't speak above a whisper, who instead of verbally engaging with me ever so slowly moves from his chair and waits right behind me in my blind spot for minutes on end for me to talk to him (I wanted to swing the hot kettle at him or bite him in all honesty. Bugger off and leave me to my tea you creepy skin crawler!) and when that doesn't work needs to leave to find someone else to speak to me because he's so passive and scared of me that he can't bring it on himself to have a normal conversation with me.
At least that's how he acts when MIL is around. He is his usual rude, sarcastic self who can speak at a volume most humans can hear when anywhere that MIL isn't.
I think this is mostly because I was MIL's back up back plan. It started off with booking a cruise and asking me to "take care of him" for Christmas, which I agreed to, mostly because all my family was out of state and working through Christmas, I wasn't going to let him into my house but go to theirs and decided it counted as their holiday (one year for me and hubby, one year for his family and one year for my dad, rinse and repeat) and MIL starting all that "he's so special" and "he needs taking care of," "you'll understand one day how special he is" crap every time we saw her, multiple times a visit. She also went to great lengths to show me how she gives him $50 multiple times a week for a maccas drinks run and doesn't expect anything back from him because that's just the way he is and he's special and caring and he can't budget. (But dare I spend $45 on a birthday present for NIL I'm spoiling her, which MIL tells me repeatedly. No one is allowed to have nice things because that will spoil them. My baby presents included an open box of seven year old nipple shields and a broken high chair but BIL has ~$100 a week to put in his pocket because he's special. So no one else is allowed to be social apparently.)
Anyway, he was such an arse, and the six hours of Christmas so bad, that MIL apologised to me for his behaviour afterwards, telling me that that was how he was and would never change and how he was special but also that he was going through things and trying (?). He also gave me a nothing apology after getting pissed off at hubby for telling him he needed to ("What does she want me to apologise for!? That's who I am! I can't change! You know I'm basically autistic!") and tried to force me to accept it. It's only after I told him that I acknowledged his apology (for what exactly? Ignoring me for the entire Christmas Day while you demanded hubby play video games with you that could in fact have more players? Demanded that I also give up my NYE for no other reason than you wanted to watch a movie that day and spoke over me when I told you that that wasn't happening? For being a complete arse to every comment I made? For treating me like your babysitter that mummy organised for you and you have to suffer? For giving me the option of maccas or starve even though I'm against going anywhere that forces workers to open on Christmas? For trying to make hubby spend the entire day with you including Christmas Eve and Boxing day and expecting me to catch public transport to see you and back, because God forbid you be left alone for Christmas when I have no family here. For just being insufferable prick? Who knows?) and only acknowledged, (was very careful not to say "accept") that he turned into the pitiful creature in all later interactions.
Next Christmas I made it clear that hubby and I would just be celebrating the day with ourselves and offered a time to see them sometime beforehand in December because a) I made a decision to never share Christmas with just BIL again ever and b) I like SIL, who is forced to work on public holidays as a first responder and wanted to spend time with her as part of the family. MIL was salty and made a few passive aggressive comments about us not spending Christmas Day with them but couldn't really say much when I brought up the fact that it wouldn't be fair to have a family Christmas party without SIL and seemed completely surprised when I mentioned wanting to spend time with her and NIL as well (I do think she was the original plan for taking care of BIL and is now the forgotten child/unfavourite because she dared to get the hell out and have her own life instead but this is pure speculation on my part).
During this not yet Christmas Christmas party BIL was in pitiful creeper mode and said "hi" in his tiny little voice and my "hi" back wasn't enough? Apparently, ironically, he didn't hear me say hi but I only found this out later. All I saw was him say hi, me say hi back and continue unpacking the food and him throwing his hands up in the air towards MIL showing her how hard he was trying to engage with me and then him sitting on the couch playing with his phone for the next few hours and politely declining at normal volume his family's attempts at getting him to come eat/socialise the rest of the day as if withholding his company from us was some form of civil disobedience against the great inequality of being (not) said "hi" to.
This Christmas not Christmas was also the time I realised that my fears were confirmed and I was MIL's back up back plan. After all, I had a house with a spare room, a conditioned spouse and no kids so I made the most sense. She told me, with a big conspiratorial wink to SIL while we had our girl time out on the balcony, that she had a little favour to ask me. In December 2019 MIL had already made plans for my Christmas 2020. She and FIL were going on another cruise (we didn't know about covid back then but I'm hoping it's been cancelled since) and hoped that I could take care of BIL, happily ignoring the fact that he was such a shit in 2018's Christmas she had to apologise on his behalf. Her jaw literally hung open when I told her that we'd already planned to spend time with my father in 2020 as if the idea that I might have a life and plans outside of her and BIL or that I wouldn't drop said life and plans for her and BIL was one she had never considered before.
The whole rest of the party was spent with her in a flabbergasted hush. I mean hours went by. She stayed behind while we went out sight seeing (we decided to go spend a nice time at a tourist spot for our Christmas party because we're Australian and it is glorious summer in December. We saw a dolphin pod!) and when BIL, who couldn't be bothered sight seeing, wanted to go shopping for baked goods because sulking on the couch while the family eats a Christmas feast doesn't do your appetite any favours. During the baked goods and antique shop crawl BIL was of normal height, normal volume and normal insufferableness towards me but still felt the need to approach hubby in private and ask if "She has told you you're coming over to mine next Christmas yet?"
I never got to any clarity on which "She" BIL was referring to but it confirmed for me that MIL had decided my holidays well in advance and did make me feel that rather than seeing hubby, BIL or myself as adults capable of making our own decisions hubby and BIL were little boys that simply did as they were told and I was either mummy 2.0 or the help (MIL treats me more like the former and BIL treats me more like the latter). Hubby told him that we had plans but did let me know later what had transpired.
Even when we were leaving MIL looked plaintively lost at me and asked me/the room out loud what could be done about BIL/who was going to take care of him (on Christmas)? We finished on a sour note with me telling her that he was an adult and left it at that. For BIL's part he was able to shrink himself down another 3-5 cms in response to being called an adult and stare at me emptily without blinking as we left. He did not say "bye" when I did, though I realise I'm just being petty and nitpicking now. (He's been his usual self since, as I say, if MIL isn't around he's more than capable of being a sarcastic, assertive prick who is able to ignore my simple boundaries such as "don't come over uninvited" until hubby has conversations with him. Because you don't need to respect the help but when your brother says the exact same thing that's when you should listen.)
Things have calmed down since. Hubby did become husband as you can guess and realises that if he wants to fulfill his goal of being a husband and a father his first priority can't be his brother. I'm currently pregnant with our first and while hubby is reading baby books every night MIL is excited and can't wait to be involved and bitches when she isn't because she "wasn't allowed" to be involved with NIL because of SIL's ex (Ex wasn't around when you wanted to hog our Christmas and thereby exclude SIL who was working on Christmas and NIL. Ex also didn't decide for you to try and move out of state and stop being NIL's only safe space in an emergency, but anyway). On one level I feel like I've dodged the BIL bullet in the same way that SIL has and if I bring it up it will only cause pain for BIL/MIL for no reason. On the other hand I don't know what other plan MIL has for BIL. I know that he's still playing the sick role for MIL and as shitty as I'm about to sound I am a bit pissed that instead of any congratulations BIL could have given us for our new life stage he told hubby that he went out and got a ";" tattoo (symbolizing a life that could have stopped but didn't) and feel that he really does feel that without a careservant he will contemplate suicide and expected us to take on his burden of care and is at a loss of what to do now that we're really off the table. But I can see that this is me being angry and thinking shitty thoughts about someone who has been basically called useless in coded language his entire life. In the same way that hubby, an adult, felt he couldn't escape the life plan MIL set out for him, BIL probably feels the same way and is angry at me while I'm angry at him when we should probably both be angry at MIL who decided all this when he was just a baby and FIL for not intervening and parenting when he could see the emotional abuse that was happening. I know that MIL doesn't see it as abuse, but I can see the effects that it has had on my husband. Sometimes doing something with good intentions is still abusive in its effects, like overfeeding a pet to the point of obesity because you just can't say no to it. I also understand that MIL has a broken normal metre and was herself abused. She knows not to throw her children against the wall to the point of brain damage or strangle her spouse or spend all the food money on alcohol or straight up leave them but she also didn't magically know what she was supposed to do. She knew that her brothers would have benefited from having as much support as possible, she saw that BIL had breathing difficulties and wasn't meeting his milestones in comparison to her other children and that she herself was willing to take up the caring role and so jumped on that and ran it into the ground and took her children with her.
BIL is working on himself and I hope he'll get better. I haven't seen him since before he started with his new counsellor but hubby says he's trying but I still have this fear that MIL is going to try again to gently mold me (or worst my future kid) into BIL's next carer, to the point that I haven't let hubby forget the plan that BIL isn't allowed anywhere near our house from the time MIL mentions considering moving into assisted living to the time that BIL sends photos of all his stuff moved in to a place that isn't ours and that, while our doors will be locked regardless and any meetings happen out front, if he creeps into my front garden with anything from a suitcase to a stuffed Woolies bag during that time I'm going to have my phone out and ready to call emergency services on him if he doesn't leave immediately. I don't want to take the burden that MIL has created. I didn't sign up for it. Nobody did.
I'm going to go see them for the first time since last December, a) because I've had two difficult pregnancies back to back with the first ending in a miscarriage, b) because we're in a covid hotspot and my BIL apparently can't wear a mask because it impacts his breathing (he said diagnoses a lot even with a counsellor) and works in a service position in said hot spot (I told them I would come over when we were in donut and churro numbers and now we've had a bunch of new cases) and c) because since this pregnancy announcement MIL has started some of her sexist nonsense unrelated to this story again (basically cannot believe that men could be competent adults and I'll need her for everything baby related and being a little suffocating about it even over phone/through hubby. Sorry you don't think you raised hubby right. I promise you he's doing everything possible that you could dream of and having a vagina doesn't magically make the person rubbing my back or bringing me a puke bucket any better than someone who doesn't have one) and d) because I've been assaulted before and while I'm sure BIL does his small, quiet pitiful act to show how he needs taking care of and without malice, the fact that he chooses to do it behind me trying to force me to look at him causes a huge stress response in me to the point I can break out into a sweat and fight, flight or freeze response. I don't feel comfortable when I'm alone around him and he's acting in this state and I don't want my baby to have stress hormones pumped into him.
But I've decided to go over at least once and hang out in their backyard with hubby who knows I don't want to be isolated with BIL. I'm just not sure what to do if the whole "BIL is special"/""What are we going to do about BIL!?" conversations start or if they even will.
Has anyone had the experience where it was just expected of them that they would take on his carer role of a relative? How did you start the "not happening" conversation?
I'm scared too that as MIL wants to be an active part of my baby's life she will take care of him and later turn around and tell me that as she has taken care of my baby it's time for me to take care of BIL.
I'm scared that BIL will never have a back up plan that isn't me because as much as I'm the help, he'll never find a roommate on Gumtree [Australia's Craigslist] that will give him $50 for a $10 maccas run and not except change like MIL has taught hubby to do and tried to teach me to do. I'm comfortable with him living out of his car can calling emergency services if he's suicidal but I know that would be hell on hubby.
From an outsider's perspective am I being irrational?
Should I be right to worry that despite having a baby MIL will still see me as mummy 2.0 and BIL will try his best to make that happen?
Perspective is welcome. At the moment I do not want to go no contact with any of them (though don't want to be alone with BIL either) and neither does hubby. I will monitor MIL's interactions with my baby. I don't want her deciding that he's developmentally delayed because he takes an extra month to walk or something compared to NIL and I don't want her to start molding him to accommodate his special uncle past maybe finding a government run nursing home for him if either we or he cannot do it ourselves. All other advice and experience is more than welcome however. So is speculation. TBH I may be sheltered but I've never seen this kind of emeshment even on relationship forums and I find it interesting. I've seen the golden child/ scapegoat dynamic before but this doesn't quite fit as BIL, the closest thing to a golden child is told that he's too helpless to achieve anything and will need full time care instead of the usual "you are the brilliant one who can do no wrong". I did think about it at length before moving forward in my relationship with hubby.

2020.10.09 03:29 HughEhhoule I'm an Underground Fighter and Weird Things Happen Around Halloween- Part 4

For anyone that hasn't had the experience, long term insomnia is an almost indescribable state. In media they always describe it as a total lack of sleep, that's bullshit. After about 2 weeks of no sleep you are dead.
But that isn't really the horror of insomnia. That's , relatively speaking, a quick bullet in the back of the head. The true scary shit, is the slow torture and mental devolution of a few weeks with 1 or 3 hours sleep.
Strangely, your brain adapts better than your body. Sure , you are not firing on all cylinders , but you make the best of the ones you have.
The toll on your body though, you wind up with everything from chronic colds to symptoms of diabetes. See, your brain is being selfish, it makes sure it's grey wrinkled self is taken care of first and foremost. Your other bodily systems left to fend for themselves.
And that is where I'm at. At the start of the newest chapter of my journey through surprisingly polite hell.
30,000 deposited that night. More money than I see some years. And no one tried to eat me, no soul removal or being turned into a doll or anything, but I couldn't shake the feeling of dread and anxiety I found myself with.
For a month and a half I blacked out my apartment windows, doubled back on every trip out of the house. And made eye contact with every stranger on the street.
Was I worried about some militia, or a group of hellspawn that could find out I'm under said group of assholes thumb? Take your pick , for 45 days I was staring down every guy over 6 foot and taking a hilarious amount of cliche anti supernatural measures.
But 45 days of relative peace started to make me think neither of these groups had much more use for me. I almost lowered my mental guard , but then I got the phone call.
"A slap fight? Seriously? You ghost me for 2 months and offer a slap fight?" I say to Harold with a sarcastic laugh.
"Not a slap fight like that, do you not watch YouTube? I'm talking a brutal offense only match. And sorry for not calling, did 30 grand not provide you with a comfortable living standard? You are not our only fighter. " Harold chides me.
"No I don't watch YouTube actually. " I say opening my ancient laptop and searching the term.
I ignore Harry's further gripes and watch a few professional slapping matches while he rants.
He was not kidding, two big bastards throwing giant open handed haymayers into each other's face. Knockouts are common and don't nessecarily end the fight,and the injuries look brutal, everything from dislodged eyes to friction burn.
"I completely understand, you couldn't be more right." I interject trying to calm his tirade. "So just gave a browse, if the pay is as good as last time, I'm in."
In truth I want to say no regardless of the pay, problem being turning down a figure like that is sure to raise suspicion. Not to mention, if those militia assholes are bugging my phone or anything they may not take too kindly to me turning down an opportunity.
"You didn't hear a word I said did you? Whatever, meet me at Gym's and we will work out the details.
I walked to Gym's, wanting to give myself some time to clear my head. By the time I walk in the door and get greeted by a few regulars I'm fairly certain I'm not acting suspicious.
Harold comes out of his office, and while he doesn't say anything the look he gives my blown out looking self tells me all I need to know.
"Rough night kid?" He says casually.
"Rough few actually." I say with a grin I force to make it to my eyes.
"Well hope you like hitting faces as much as the bottle. " Harold leads me back to his office as he begins to explain.
"Don't you think Syz is at a bit of an advantage in a slap fight?" I say taking a seat at his desk. On it sits a computer that looks old enough to legally buy alcohol, and a few files with pictures attached.
"I do, but you ain't fighting Syz this time. Another human…mostly is going to be your opponent. We are making this a team based match, America versus Russia. One human, one wildcard and one champion each side, first team down 3 loses. Pay will be double if your interested." Harold smiles as he sees my eyes widen.
"I am, depending on what you mean by 'mostly'. " I say trying to give myself a reasonable out.
"Nothing to worry about, they call themselves 'Heroes' we tend to call them a lot less complimentary things. The vast majority are genocidal pricks who come from families who have been given 'a little something' and think that makes it their goal in life to kill folks like us. But this guy, he's one of the good ones.And his 'little something' won't come into play. He's got a few pounds on you, but that's about it." Harold starts flipping through the files as I try to keep the fear and shock out off of my face.
I'm expecting to see the Australian guy from the diner, but the picture us of a very stout , 6 foot is, pale guy, 30s , huge beard, and a gut that seems to demand your attention.
I can't find a way to argue I'm out classed. I panic and agree "No problem" I say cursing myself silently.
"You have 2 weeks to get back in shape, looks like you are going to need it. Another 10 grand if you train up Syz a bit, your other teammate, you'll maybe meet him before the match. But I wouldn't hold my breath." Harold starts bringing up something on his computer " You can go now.".
My mind and heart are in a competition to see which can give out first as I leave the office. I nearly fall over as Syz , seemingly out of no where bounds up to me with an extremely off putting look of glee on his face.
"We stand as one,easel going, to hold up that display of impeccable construction!" He screams , full volume.
"Calm down. Literally every word of that flew straight over my head. Let's try that again." I say leading him over to the corner that is obviously his and his alone.
He takes in a few deep breaths and speaks a bit more calmly "Our unneeded assistance is given to those above our station." .
"You are a fan of the other guy on our side?" I say taking a stab at the meaning. Syz nods enthusiastically.
"Can't wait to meet him. Till then, you think you can deal with my unimpressive self?" I say with a smirk.
"A friendly face, and indelible ink, I should think so!" He says patting me on the shoulder.
"I love our little talks Syz. " I say as we try to come up with a training plan for a match format neither of us has experience with.
After watching more matches than were strictly nessecary, we realised that us sparring against each other is going to be doing no one any favors.
So I found someone more or less human shaped (a rotting vaguely canine guy who was a lot less obnoxious than his smell. ) to spar with, while Syz picked something that looked like a living breathing stick person.
From there it was simply a matter of undoing some habits. Dodging a blow being one of them. A technical foul and cause for a do over of the opponent's slap.
I split my time between Gym's and home this time, though the workout actually lead to some nights with sleep, my precarious situation was always in the back of my mind while training.
Four days before the fight I got my second bowel loosening phone call.
"Listen closely , I will only be telling you this once …" the Australian says.
I did know what came over me. Wish I could say it was the opposite but I'd been getting general information about the heroes under the guise of research for the fight. And from the perspective of anyone I could talk to, they amounted to the paranormal equivalent of skinheads (Though there was plenty of 'not all heroes' moments.), not some kind of all powerful cabal. I was angry and felt in control.
"No, you listen, you and the ghost busters can take a flying fuck at a rolling donut. You are going to kill my family? When you spend your life pissing off things that could tear you apart? I don't think so, in fact I think your resources are stretched so thin, your best plan is to try and use a low end fighter to somehow screw with an abnormal fight promotion. That, mate, is a stupid fucking plan.
If I catch a whiff of your folks around me again, I'm going to bring my friends into it. And from what I've seen they are a lot scarier than yours." I say building ire and vitriol through my monologue.
"Looks like we go with plan b then." He says cryptically as he ends the call.
The conversation shook me a bit but I had confidence in what I was saying. Sometimes I can be such a moron.
We never ended up meeting up with our third member till fight night. Syz and myself were getting ready in the locker room as Harold and the mysterious 3rd member of our team came in.
He was a short guy, about 5 foot six, dressed in an upscale suit that looked about 80 years out of date. His pitch black hair was slicked back and he was wearing a somehow dapper ,small,flat straw looking hat.
"Buster, meet Terry. " Harold says as the man takes off his suit jacket and offers his hand. I shake it and feel a grip like a vise.
Syz is literally shaking with glee as he produces a piece of aged,stained paper and a pencil that is little more than a stub.
With a confidant grace he takes the paper and autographs it. Syz puts it inside his black fog like jacket and I choose to not ask how exactly that works.
We watch our opponents enter the ring to assorted cheers and boos from the crowd. I recognise mine from the photo, looking intimidating in a blue and white stripped wife beater and track pants but the other 2 are both shocking for different reasons.
"Mine" Syz says pointing to a creature that looks like an anorexic human suspended in a rotting placenta. The thing stretches the sack surrounding it's emaciated form into whiplike tendrils cracking them to the delight of the crowd.
The third though, it isn't some horror, it's a small wobbly looking old Russian grandmother. Wrapped in layers of shawls and blankets. The applause as she simply waves to the crowd can be heard in the locker room.
"Her and buster got quite the rivalry. They had some clashes over territory back in the day." Harold says as we get ready to make our entrance.
Buster waves Syz and I to go first. I thank him as we walk out and start to go through a well rehearsed introduction where we pit aside our differences to defeat the other team.
No one was watching us though.
The second Buster entered the applause drowned out anything we were saying and no one's eyes were anywhere but on him. We went through the motions of our introduction as we made our way into the ring, but it was obvious people were there for the spectacle and the big names, not our gimmicks.
In the ring were three waist high tables, a stool was provided for the old lady to bring her level with Buster. We stood across from our respective opponents and grabbed the stout bars potruding from the tables with our left hands.
There were 3 refs, all absolutely identical looking ( to me anyway) tall bald men, each had a twisted evil looking face on the back of their skull in addition to a more standard one where I've always assumed faces always went.
The rules were explained by all three in unison to the crowd. The cheers began to rise then subside as they announced the first round.
They were saving the best for last obviously , and started with me and my rotund opponent.
No handshake, just a Russian phrase that could just as easily have been "Good luck" or "fuck you." As he chalks his hand and lines up his first slap.
The blow comes in quick,and I hear it long before the burning pain sets in. I clench the support pole for a moment as I push the pain down. I nod to the ref and line up my own strike.
I hit hard, my strike is launched from the hip and hits squarely , raising a red welt on the Russians face. But he reacts as much as if I attacked him with harsh language.
He says something to me in an aggressive tone and draws his finger across his throat. Chuckling deeply as the spotlight on us cuts off, and one on Syz and the placenta thing sparks to life.
Syz rotates his shoulder and lines up his shot. The slap has the momentum of a freight train, but the jelly like skin of the thing in front of Syz absorbs a lot of the shock. And while it makes a noise like a snapping broom handle there are no visible signs of injury.
The creature does nothing for a moment and in a flash whips a thick tapered tentacle toward Syz, it hits like a whip, opening a severe gash on his face. He stumbles backward but doesn't fall.
Then the spotlight hits the A squad.
The crowd goes wild, Buster wastes no time and winds back a strike that only barely brushes the face of the old lady. There is no way this was anything other than showmanship, I assume.
The old lady throws a quick backhand slap in response that tears open Buster's face, a dripping flap of skin hangs for a moment before starting to knit back together.
The next 4 rounds are much of the same , unfortunately for Syz this meant fighting an extremely uphill battle. Buster and I were mostly remaining on even ground with our opponents, but by the sixth round Syz looked like he had been through a blender. I had no idea if he could even see, as both eyes had a large furrow of tissue removed.
My answer came with him throwing a slap that hit his opponent solidly on the arm. Before the return strike he backs away from the platform waving his hands, metaphorically throwing in the towel.
"First point to Russia " the announcer screams as the crowd cheers and boos.
The Russian man says some more indecipherable taunts and winds back, his shot is off target though and instead of hitting my face, slams directly into my ear.
I hit the ground, holding the side of my head. I'm disoriented, and feel like there is a knitting needle driven through my head.
One of the refs comes over and inspects my ear, it is judged an unintentional foul, granting me an extra strike , but not disqualifying him.
I throw the first slap, and finally I see a little flicker in the bastards dead blue eyes, the next blow comes before his head gets aligned again and he goes to both knees, grabbing the table to keep from crumpling to the ground. But he holds on, wiping a thin trickle of blood from his mouth.
"About time to get this show on the road anyway." He says just loud enough for me to hear. I never questioned if he knew English, but my heart starts to race. Something is up.
Both the old lady and buster are looking like they got a cement mixer facial. Neither being able to keep up the rapid healing pace of the earlier rounds.
Buster is done messing around it seems, he leans backward,using only his ankles almost becoming parallel to the floor . With a spin that uses every muscle in his body he launches a slap that builds up from the floor. The sound it made wasn't sharp, it was a wet thud that accompanied his hand caving in half of the old lady's face. There was no call it by the refs, her cut man dragged her, twitching body from the ring.
Buster was leaning against his podium, obviously broken and winded to some extent himself. He looks over to me, one eye missing, bottom half of his face fleshless, as if to say " it's up to you now.".
As the spotlight hits me and my opponent I see something, pointed and metal in his right hand. With a movement that only I can see he stabs the placenta beast and I hear a pressurised whine.
"Should have just went with plan A " he says with a smile.
The placenta wrapped thing makes a shrieking noise and rips it's podium from the ring , throwing it into the audience with an audible crunch.
I back up as fast as I can, the Russian on the other hand looks serene , not breaking eye contact with me as the creature turns it's sudden rage on him.
The tentacles start to lash him non stop. Unlike their impact on Syz , each blow shatters bone and pulps organs the man deform and breaks before my eyes, becoming little more than a leaking sack of meat as the creature slams a tentacle one last time,spraying the ring with gore.
"Cut the lights, cut the cameras and get everyone out of here!" I hear Harold scream as we are plunged into darkness.
As my eyes adjust I see that the thin human form in the sack glows subtly green. Thankfully I can see the thing that will certainly kill me.
I can barely make Buster out, but he still looks hurting. Regardless he charges the thing, moving faster than I could on my best day. Unrestrained, his blows hit like battering rams. The form in the sack being tossed around as it is struck.
I feel like I should try and help, I rush in and get hit a few times, light , glancing blows I don't see. When I get close enough to make out the creatures limbs, I grab a tentacle and begin to yank, trying to get it off balance , I feel many more slapping against my stomach and chest, but the don't seem to be connecting well, I grab tighter, twisting the limb around my body.
My muscles burn, but buster seems to be winning the fight. The form inside has limbs floating unattached, a deformed skull and ribs that look like a crushed pile of matchsticks.
Buster starts to rip and tear, burrowing through the creature like a mole. It screams and thrashes , but as the lithe deadpan guy jams his upper half into the ragged hole he has made the creature discorporates into reeking liquid and clattering bone.
I fall to the ground suddenly unimpeded. The lights turn back on and the first thing I see is a nearly empty arena.
The second is Buster, looking like a skinned hare.
The third is just how wrong I was about those glancing hits.
My stomach is nothing more than torn sinew , white and grey bulges I hope are not organs showing through.
There is a deep puncture mark under my left lung, leaking blood at an alarming rate.
Shock wears off, and I lose consciousness.
I awake with a deep burning pain in my stomach, and a man in a surgical garb (that appears to also be wearing clown makeup.) Stitching up my stomach.
"Easy there, I didn't go to 12 years of medical school to hurt you." He says annoyed.
I'm about three quarters stitched up, and still looking at parts that should be left unseen.
The doctor turns behind him , and begins to talk to someone I can't see.
"He's fine, gonna have one hell of a scar though. But why on earth have you been…" the doctor is interrupted by a voice , Harold's voice.
"He's fine now though? Besides the stitch job?" Harold says.
"He could probably do it himself at this…" the doctor is interupted again. Harold grabs his head and turns it 180 degrees. As the body drops he yanks again, removing the clown's head. He drops it, walking over to the table I'm on and tossing me a spool of thick black thread and a thick needle.
"We have a lot to talk about kid." He says in a tone that barely surpresses his rage.

2020.10.08 21:46 YoruKhun My Experience on Dating Apps in Japan

I'm writing this cos I wanna record my experience somewhere, it'll be mostly observation and opinions. This isn't really a guide because guides are mostly worthless as what works for x will not work for y and I know location matters a lot (I was born and raised in a Western country in Oceania, got maybe 10-20 tinder matches per month). I'm not a regular of this sub and don't give a shit about masculinity social norms, you do you.
Tinder
2 out of 3 profiles will either be a faceless picture they took at DisneySea/Land, a photo of the back of their head, purikura (Japanese photo sticker with 100 filters) or anime/food. Bots are obvious because their bio has nothing but a Line id, but there's a chance it might be an escort too. I think it's safe to say Tinder is quite big in Japan so you won't easily run out of profiles to swipe in Tokyo. I've heard people say that in Japan, women use Tinder to find relationships, friendships or a free English lesson rather than ONS. It's hard to generalize but I think there's a bit of everything here and it's hard for me to compare because I've never been to the U.S.
Bumble
The quality of women on Bumble is much higher than Tinder and I don't mean in terms of attractiveness. Most profiles don't cover their face, English bio, and many do write down their job title. I'm not saying Tinder is lower class or anything but Bumble gives the perception that there are more mature people. The local women who use Bumble generally look more Westernized in my opinion. I never set my distance setting above 25mi so I sometimes run out of profiles to swipe even when i'm in the center of Tokyo or Osaka. I would rate Bumble higher than Tinder but I don't get matches for shit (5-15 a week?). I think you'll find a lot of success on Bumble in Japan if you're a handsome white guy, going by the experience of my Australian friend.
Tantan
Tantan is popular among Chinese communities but I think it's quite popular in Japan too. I don't really have much to say about this app but I feel like matches are inflated here.
MEEFF
I think MEEFF is probably the most popular behind Tinder in Japan (out of the Western dating apps). Even when you filter it to people nearby or country only, there's a massive amount of profiles. It's similar to Bumble in which the receiver of a like has to respond in 24 hours. Biggest drawback is the amount of ads and people from all over the world can like you. It doesn't track how many likes you have received, but I think so far I've been liked over 8000 times but only about 5% have been from people living in Japan.
Recently they introduced a system where you can bid rubies (meeff currency) to introduce your profile to everyone. More you pay the higher your profile is viewed starting from the first page. You can slowly rake up rubies for free or you can throw money away and keep your profile on the top pages to farm instagram followers (what most people do).
Badoo and Okcupid
Badoo is just a dogshit app. More than half the women don't live in the location that appears on their profile. It also doesn't have many locals and rather dominated by SE Asians, nothing wrong with this it's just not what I'm looking for. I don't get matches for shit on Okcupid too and you don't get many free likes per day. Again, my Aussie friend has a lot of success on Okcupid.
Thoughts
I've met women from all the apps above including Hello Talk (fuck Hello Talk). I've had the most success with MEEFF and Tinder in terms of actually meeting in person. I don't like profiles anymore if they're not my type appearance-wise or if their bio is completely blank. I can't be fucked with the same old routine of hello/hello, how are you/good how are you etc and introducing myself for the 1000th time. If I really want to meet someone I would try asking out a date within 8 messages > share SNS > meet, If not move on. Why? Because any decent looking girl has 1000+ likes waiting in line. Generally women dictate dating apps as they can pick and choose and men get what they can (by spamming likes) unless you look like a Hollywood actor.
The more fluent you are in Japanese the more opportunities, which obviously applies to everywhere when you're using dating apps in a foreign country. There are Japanese dating apps like Pairs, Omiai and Tapple and going by App Ape's stats and other sources popularity goes Pairs > Tapple > Omiai > Tinder. I would try these apps but they have a monthly subscription if you're a guy and my Japanese is not even close to fluent. So I would be wasting money and time on these. If you don't wanna use dating apps you could try visiting The Hub to pick up women but I hope you know this is a meme within the expat community. Or you could try the cold approach/nanpa whatever you wanna call it. I've never seen the appeal of it and it's not wise during covid anyway. I think success rate of cold approach is 1-5% if you are an average looking person. Probably a bit higher if you're some Zyzz looking mofo in Western countries or alternatively a BTS look alike in Asia. I personally think cold approach is a waste of everyone's time; yours and the woman minding her own business. And often a tool used by self-proclaimed PUAs to sell snake oil to clueless idiots, at least the ones who try to monetize off it. But hey, not saying it doesn't work cos something's bound to stick if you throw enough times.
For my profile I have mostly selfies (wow shock), no shirtless pics because i'm not fit - in fact I'm underweight (5′ 11′′ 62kg), I have nothing to flex no Gucci/Supreme/Rolex shit and I have a 1 sentence bio in English saying where I'm from. To me it seems like Americans think that your bio should have some 'funny' joke to show how witty and special you are (maybe they're right in Western countries) but In Japan just keep it simple imo cos they probably won't get it anyway. In the future I might try using the local apps If my Japanese improves greatly, and try different pics if I ever work out for my own health and interest.

2020.10.07 18:08 nickhintonn333 9/11 and the Mandela Effect

9/11 and the Mandela Effect
You’ve probably seen the meme that says we’re living in the wrong timeline. While this sounds like a joke, there might be some truth to it. There are some researchers who claim what happened on 9/11 was a temporal event that caused our timeline to split in two. Supposedly there is a parallel world where the Twin Towers still exist and the apocalypse is being avoided. This is not to say I think we are living in the wrong timeline, but that is something I will get into in another thread. Just know that there is still hope.
Perhaps the darkest timeline is needed for some collective shadow work.
However, I do think our timeline has been altered and probably more times than once. While this is not something you can really prove, there are many oddities surrounding 9/11 as well as a synchronistic pattern hidden in pop culture that seems to point to this. In the movie Back to the Future, after the protagonist accidentally activates a time machine and alters the future, the Twin Pines Mall becomes the Lone Pine Mall. Notice how the clock reads 9:11 when flipped upside down.
134 reads like hel when flipped upside too. Are we living in a bardo state like in the movie Jacob's Ladder or the show The Good Place?
Was this a reference to the Mandela Effect and the Twin Towers becoming the One World Trade Center? In the second Back to the Future movie, the protagonists accidentally create a new timeline where a wealthy man named Biff takes over their town. Biff lives in a skyscraper casino and turns their town into a chaotic dystopia. According to the screenwriter Bob Gale, Biff was based on Donald Trump. This is not a political statement, I’m just saying it’s odd how things turned out.
I wonder if Bob Gale knew Trump would run for president?
In the Super Mario Bros. movie, a meteorite impact millions of years ago caused the universe to split into two timelines, the one we live in, and one where dinosaurs evolved into a humanoid race. President Koopa, a reptilian human hybrid, seems to be another caricature of Trump. President Koopa wants to merge his dimension with ours and attempts to rule Manhattan from the Twin Towers, which are portrayed as a gateway between worlds. The Super Mario franchise is strange when you think about shamans eating mushrooms to commune with serpent gods.
Looks kind of similar, right?
There are many more examples of the WTC acting as a gateway. In an episode of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the Twin Towers are used to transmit energy that propels the earth into another dimension. Take note of the sphere between the buildings, this will become relevant later. In the intro of Power Rangers: Time Force, a machine called the Time Shadow is seen standing on the towers. Take note of the moon in the background as well. This will become relevant too. During the final scene of Fringe season 1, the WTC is seen intact in a parallel universe. In the intro of Power Rangers: Time Force, a machine called the Time Shadow is seen standing on the towers. Take note of the moon in the background as well. This will become relevant too. During the final scene of Fringe season 1, the WTC is seen intact in a parallel universe.
I miss cartoons.
Another interesting example can be found in Star Trek. In the show, space explorers are sent back in time to stop an alien invasion in the 1940s that altered the outcome of WWII and allowed the Nazis to invade the US. Once they kill the alien leader, one of the characters tells the protagonist that the timeline has corrected itself just as an image of the Twin Towers burning passes in the background.
From Star Trek: Enterprise
The idea of a parallel world where the Nazis won WWII is very prominent in pop culture. But why is this? Is it possible creative people can intuitively sense other realities while absorbed in the act of creating? Philip K. Dick believed that’s what he did when he wrote The Man in the High Castle. He claimed:
"I in my stories and novels sometimes write about counterfeit worlds. Semi-real worlds as well as deranged private worlds, inhabited often by just one person…. At no time did I have a theoretical or conscious explanation for my preoccupation with these pluriform pseudo-worlds, but now I think I understand. What I was sensing was the manifold of partially actualized realities lying tangent to what evidently is the most actualized one—the one that the majority of us, by consensus gentium, agree on."
Coincidentally, Philip K. Dick was one of the first modern thinkers to predict the Mandela Effect. He once declared:
“we are living in a computer-programmed reality, and the only clue we have to it is when some variable is changed, and some alteration in our reality occurs.”
The Nazis were rumored to be in possession of a time machine known as Die Glocke, or in English, The Bell. They were supposedly taught how to build this device by extraterrestrials and the craft was said to be kept in a facility known as Der Riese, or The Giant. It sounds far fetched, but The Nazi Party was actually formed from The Thule Society, an occult group that dabbled in channeling and other magical practices. They were also known to use the Black Sun symbol, an esoteric representation of a gateway into another dimension.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Sun_(symbol))
In Twin Peaks, a show about a small town caught in the midst of an interdimensional battle between good and evil, there seems to be a reference to Die Glocke. In season 8 there is a device that looks just like it, and at one point, a character called The Giant appears next to it.
A conception of Die Glocke compared to the mysterious bell device in Twin Peaks.
Twin Peaks is full of occult symbolism. In one episode a character is given instructions to find a portal that opens 253 yards east of Jack Rabbit’s Palace at 2:53 pm on October 1st. This portal is located in Washington. However, there is another in Las Vegas. Strangely enough, on October 1st, 2017, the Las Vegas shooting occurred in a lot 253 yards away from the Luxor Hotel, a giant black pyramid with the strongest beam of light in the world shooting out of it. Victims were mostly those attending the Route 91 Harvest music festival.
There's also black pyramids on the instructions.
But it gets stranger. Jason Aldean was one of the headliners. If you look at his tattoos, there’s a Jack card and an Ace card underneath a black sun, which as mentioned earlier, is an occult symbol that represents a portal. This card from the Illuminati game is almost identical. A Jack is worth 10 points. An Ace is worth 1 point. This odd coincidence seems to be a reference to the date 10/1. Keep in mind this date looks like the number 101. This will become relevant too. But was the Route 91 Harvest a literal harvest of souls meant to energize a portal?
This one is too much of a coincidence for me.
The name Twin Peaks seems to be a reference to the Twin Pillars, a Masonic concept that originated from the Biblical idea of Boaz and Jachin, two pillars that stood on the porch of King Solomon's Temple. The Twin Pillars can be found in ancient architecture all over the world and are sometimes used in Tarot. They are said to represent a doorway into a higher realm. In this Masonic artwork, you can see the Black Sun between them.
Jachin, Boaz, and the Black Sun.
The Twin Pillars and the gateway in between can be represented by the number 101. In Twin Peaks, the entrance to The Black Lodge, a place that exists in another dimension, is depicted as a rabbit hole between two trees, which resembles a zero between two ones. In George Orwell’s famous novel 1984, Room 101 is a place where people’s worst fears come true. In The Matrix, Neo’s apartment number is 101. Here it’s interesting to note that he escapes the matrix by going in room 303. This year marks 303 years since Freemasonry was founded. Perhaps they will make their getaway come December? Many occult researchers claim the Twin Towers were supposed to represent the Twin Pillars. There even used to be a statue called The Sphere placed in between them, making the buildings resemble the 101 Gateway.
The Black Lodge entrance from Twin Peaks and The Sphere centered between the Twin Towers.
Is it possible that the WTC‘s design was intended to create an interdimensional doorway using sacred geometry? Some say the Twin Towers even acted as a tuning fork. The buildings were wrapped in aluminum alloy with a resonant hollow interior. If you look at the picture above and to the right, you can kind of see how the sides of the towers even look like one. The Colgate Clock also once faced the WTC from across the water. If you’ve read my previous threads, you’ll probably notice it’s octagonal shape. Many portals in pop culture are portrayed as being 8 sided, like CERN, the largest particle collider in the world. Many conspiracy theorists speculate CERN is actually an interdimensional doorway. Some of the scientists working there have even said this. Why is there so much symbolism? Can it all really be just a coincidence at this point? Did 9/11 really alter our timeline?
The Colgate Clock compared to CERN.
According to many people, 9/11 is the reason the Statue of Liberty’s torch is closed. However, this isn’t true. Lady Liberty’s torch has been closed for over 100 years. Yet, there are some people who claim to have visited it. But according to official history, this is impossible. In this reality, The Black Tom Explosion was the reason the Lady Liberty’s torch closed. The explosion occurred in 1916 and was one of the first foreign attacks on US soil prior to Pearl Harbor. The explosion was also one of the largest non-nuclear explosions ever documented. The explosion was so powerful it caused the outer wall of Jersey City's city hall to crack and the Brooklyn Bridge to shake. Ironically, besides Lady Liberty’s torch, the explosion lodged shrapnel in the clock tower of The Jersey Journal building, stopping the clock at 2:12 am. It also caused windows miles away in Times Square to shatter. Perhaps the matrix was trying to tell us something. Was this a time shattering event?

https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g60763-d103887-r126254125-Statue_of_Liberty-New_York_City_New_York.html
Some people also claim they remember the Statue of Liberty being on Ellis Island. However, it has always been on Liberty Island. Once again, this is not something I recall learning in school. I’m sure some people do, but if my theory is correct, it’s because only some people in this timeline are from the old one. However, you can still find what appears to be residue left over from the previous reality.
Residue from a previous reality?
There are references in pop culture that seem to hint at the connection between the Mandela Effect and Lady Liberty as well. In the video game Assassin’s Creed Unity, the protagonist must find an exit portal to get himself out of a simulation. He finds it on the statue’s torch. In the movie Men in Black II, the statue’s torch is actually a giant Neuralyzer, a handheld device that uses a bright white flash to wipe people’s minds. At the end of the movie, the torch is activated and it illuminates the sky, erasing the memory of everyone in New York City.
The scenes from Assassin's Creed and Men In Black II
In the Netflix series The OA, a show about people who can jump between parallel universes, the Statue of Liberty shows up a lot. It seems to play an important role that was never really explained due to the show’s sudden cancellation. Some fans have pointed out that in one scene, Lady Liberty is holding her torch in the wrong hand. Some say this was just an error while others think it may have a deeper meaning.
The Statue of Liberty scene from The OA.
In The OA, the protagonist searches for The Rose Window, an object she says acts like a portal to other dimensions. I find this very symbolic considering the Twin Pillar symbolism mentioned earlier. Many older cathedrals have huge rose windows centered between two tall towers.
Old cathedrals with 101 Gateway symbolism built into the architecture.
If you’ve read my previous threads, you might have already made the connection that the 101 Gateway is another version of the Saturn Stargate. If you’re not familiar with the theory, we live in a simulation controlled by Saturn and the Moon, and The Elite are tying to break out. Our simulated reality is sometimes represented by a cube, and some say The Kaaba is one of these symbolic structures. The Kaaba sits between two pillars underneath a clocktower with a crescent moon on top.
Kaaba at Mecca.
Ironically, Fritz Koenig, the artist who created The Sphere sculpture between the Twin Towers, said The Kaaba was the inspiration behind his art installation. We can see this symbolism repeated in much of our pop culture as well. In the video game Fortnite, a giant cube destroys a location called Tilted Towers then forms a portal in the sky. At another point in the game, it is revealed that the cube’s true form is a giant demon named the Storm King. His horns are reminiscent of a crescent moon.
The second time you fight the Storm King its at a location called Twine Peaks lmao.
But are there anymore significant Mandela Effects associated with the WTC? According to some people, Hurricane Erin never happened in their timeline. If you‘re unaware, like I was until recently, there was a massive hurricane headed right for New York on the morning of 9/11. Because of the events that occurred on 9/11, I understand how Hurricane Erin would be easy to forget. Nevertheless, the storm was strange. Hurricane Erin, which was slightly larger than Hurricane Katrina, received almost no media coverage as she charged toward New York City. On the morning of 9/11, just as the planes were about to hit, Hurricane Erin grew to her largest size, but slowed down and remained almost stationary off the East coast. But right after the WTC fell, she made a sharp right turn and headed back out to sea.
Hurricane Erin on September 11th, 2001.
Hurricane Erin’s name is also interesting. The name Erin originated from Ériu, a goddess typically seen by the sea playing a harp. I find this curious becau HAARP uses extremely powerful radio frequencies to heat up the ionosphere and create clouds of plasma. Not only does this affect the climate, but the electromagnetic waves produced by it could hypothetically mess with our minds, perhaps changing or even erasing our memories. se many conspiracy theorists blame HAARP for both weather manipulation and the Mandela Effect.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%89riu
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High-frequency_Active_Auroral_Research_Program
In my last thread, I talked about MH370. I believe it’s disappearance, like the events discussed in this thread, was a part of a Saturn Stargate ritual. A sacrifice to the god of time. Would it be beyond the god of the fourth dimension to grant someone access to a wormhole? Perhaps The Elite are not purposely creating Mandela Effects and branching timelines. Perhaps it is just a side effect of trying to beak the matrix. But I digress. At the end of my last thread I said I would talk more about rabbit symbolism and its association with time travel. However, before I talk about that, or the Law of One, I thought I should talk about this first. Thanks for reading.
Oh yeah, in case you did read my last thread, check this out. The fact that this article was posted 2 weeks after my MH370 conspiracy post has me kind of spooked lol.
