2020.10.30 21:50 TheBishop7 The 2020 playoffs are approaching. Who should I root for? (3 Weeks Remain)

You may remember this weekly post from the last six seasons. This post is designed to give you an idea of who to root for in MLS matches not featuring The Black & Gold, yet including teams that still have an effect on The Crew's final standings.
 

Last Week

It's time to write off the possibility of a Supporter's Shield in 2020. It's not impossible, but statistically speaking, it might as well be after a Crew loss and Union win.
The goal at this point is to hold on to home field advantage for the first round of the playoffs. Orlando and New York City both won last week and could take third or fourth place from Columbus if their forms remain the same. Nashville also won last week and has a slim chance to catch the Crew, especially considering they are 3-0-1 in the last four games.
Also of note, the final standings will now be ranked by PPG (points per game). If no more games are postponed, this should not affect the Eastern Conference as all games that have not been rescheduled involve the Colorado Rapids vs. another Western Conference team. That said, any COVID issues at this point will surely be cancellations rather than reschedules.
 

Who should I root for?

Listing (EDT) Home Team Away Team WSIRF? TV
Saturday 3:30pm FC Dallas Houston Dynamo Dynamo
Saturday 8:30pm Nashville SC Chicago Fire Fire
Sunday 7:00pm New York City FC New York Red Bulls Red Bulls
Sunday 7:30pm Montreal Impact Orlando City SC Impact

Sunday 10:00pm Portland Timbers Vancouver Whitecaps Caps
Sunday 10:30pm San Jose Earthquakes Los Angeles Football Club Quakes
Note: All matches not nationally televised can be viewed on ESPN+
 
Disclaimer: I realize that cheering for the Fire or Cincinnati or whomever is not something you typically want to do, but remember that this is just statistics, and it is for the Crew's benefit for these results to happen. It also doesn't matter what you shout at your screen. What happens, happens, regardless of us. Root for the Mutiny, Fusion, or Chivas to win for all I care.

2020.10.30 21:48 levilarrington Flashback! Traffic (Not the Band)

Nine out of ten people get stuck in traffic in Seattle everyday. That other guy doesn't have a job or a car and is just sucking off society like a deer tick. So, 10 out of 10 useful people are stuck in traffic in Seattle everyday. That's bad news if you, you know, have to be somewhere other than your car. What would be cool is if everyone just worked in their car. But then there'd be no traffic and then we're back at square one and fuck it God, I'm ending it!
So, there you are. You're driving West on I90 right around T-Mobile and you start slowing down. You look around to see if anyone else is slowing down. They are. You mouth "What. The. Fuck." to yourself. You think I was just doing 80 and now I'm doing 25. How did this happen. Then you start slowing down more until you finally just stop. You look around and start panicking. Why is everyone stopped? Because in the back of your mind you know where traffic is and you weren't driving that way. Not today. It's Saturday at one. What the hell is going on?
You're stuck in traffic.
You didn't plan it. That's what goes through your head first. Like everyone else out there planned to be stuck in traffic. "Fuck it, let's take the car out and park it in the middle of Factoria and Bellevue." That didn't happen. You just happened to drive into a situation where one car heading to Renton decided to go ape on Red Bull and Vodka, some jalepeno poppers, and some wine. They probably were out with friends. It was 11. So, maybe there was a game on. They were Italian. I'm pretty sure they were Italian. They had just started dating this cute guy named Richard that they met at WHAMO! they hit a semi and the car goes up in flames and they are on fire! They look down and their steering wheel is on fire in their lap. Their left boob is on fire, they're face is melting and that's why you're stuck in traffic.
What's really mean is my first thought at traffic is "There better be an accident." It's the most grim, Darth Vader thinking I do. Like I figure that it better not be some asshole trying to get into the right lane to exit late - no, it better be the Italian lady above on fire because that is the only thing that warrants me sitting in my car and trying my best not to use my phone.
The problem with that is that I end up doing things that are way worse than using my phone. Like I'll start cleaning the glove box or looking in those side holster things on the doors to see what I put in there if anything. I never find anything, but I always pause before and think about things that could be in there that would be astonishing. Like if you reached down to the car door holster things and you pulled out a chimney sweep. Like at first it's just this dirty scalp, and then this face with coal all over it and then the neck and then he's like talking and you're askingWHAMO! and then I'm in an accident. Didn't use the phone at all.
Now everyone just maps their drive to avoid traffic. Which when you live in a smaller city, like Issaquah, you become astounded that people are taking the odd routes you thought you made up. Like you drive down Front, hang a right on Gilman, then a left near the post office, then you go backward towards Safeway, and then out onto Newport and fuck it everyone else is doing the same fucking thing.
I almost got hit by a car last night. I was at a light and the light turns green and I realize there's a car on my right, but I'm in the rightmost lane. The car goes by me in an exit, drives onto a sidewalk and then over two lanes stopping traffic and then gets on to I90.
Then I honk.
Some people honk in traffic and that's really lame. Because no one else can move either. It's almost like being in a movie theater and yelling periodically "WE'RE WATCHING A MOVIE!"
The worst is when you're in traffic and a Department of Transportation vehicle goes rolling by. Then you know you're really fucked. Like the traffic you're in is so bad they had to call people that study traffic.
Sometimes you can't figure out why there's traffic. You're stuck for three hours on I5 in Seattle and then all of a sudden it starts moving and you look to the right and left and there's no accident. You get to Tacoma - no cops no accidents no WHAMO! and you just stopped traffic from Seattle to Tacoma and you're head is in your lap and you're spouting blood out your neck onto the dome lights and in your final moments you think "Am I a time traveler?"
They have buses and trains and stuff now. I think I paid for a monorail like nine times when I lived in Seattle. Still just have the one at Westlake. It goes from Westlake toand it's over.
Everyone is bitching about car taxes to pay for the train or whatever. Mostly the people with expensive cars. I ask these people "Can't you afford 250? You drive a Mercedes." And they counter with that's why they are paying 250 and then I have nothing to say because I'm confused and I don't know the person and I should get back to mowing their lawn.
All in all, if you really want to do something about the traffic in SeattWHAMO!

2020.10.30 19:54 ballashotcall_ Accepted into City Year Seattle! What should I expect?

Finally got my acceptance into the Seattle location and I accepted the offer! Posting to see what I should expect?
  1. COVID concerns: Hopefully there's a vaccine and there's a transition to in person classes, but if not, how did City Year Seattle handle covid? If you're from out of state, did you have to move to Seattle for the program or are you at home? What do hours look like now vs pre-pandemic? Do you have in-person activities?
  2. What can you say about management/leadership in cyseattle?
  3. Living expenses: I know it's an expensive area to live in. How many roommates did you have, were you sharing a room, how far did you live from your site? Was public transportation (light rail/the buses) reliable?
  4. Outside City Year: Was it possible to have a life? Dating, exploring the area/travelling to nearby areas, eating out? How did those factor into your budget?
  5. SNAP benefits: would you be ineligible for food stamps if you have a side hustle outside of city year? like working online for tutoring?

2020.10.30 08:41 st_sebastian Martin and Ronee's anniversary is also Martin's birthday (kinda...)

In the 1994-05-19 season one episode "My Coffee with Niles", Martin says that it was his birthday "last Sunday". Since the episode aired on a Thursday, this would make Martin's birthday May 15th.
In the 2004-05-13 episode "Goodnight, Seattle", Martin schedules his wedding day for May 15th.
It's a fun coincidence. Unfortunately, Martin's birthday moves from May to September in season five and the coincidence ceases to exist.
Martin's birthday occurred in mid May again in season two's 1995-05-23 episode "Dark Victory", which is close enough to May 15th to assume that it's either a belated birthday party or that the episode takes place a week earlier than the date of the broadcast.
In season five, the writers seem to forget that Martin's birthday is in May. In the 1997-09-30 episode "The Gift Horse", Martin's birthday is suddenly in September. In season seven's 1999-09-23 episode "Momma Mia", the family goes to a cabin to celebrate Martin's birthday, indicating that it's still in September. And since none of the characters mention this coincidence in the series finale, it's safe to assume that the writers' memories had still not been refreshed by the time season eleven rolled around. Since September 23rd and September 30th are so close together, we can assume that Martin's birthday was actually halfway between these two dates.
So from 1994 to 1997, Martin's birthday was May 15th and, in time, would coincide with the anniversary of his marriage to Ronee. But from 1997 to 2001, Martin's birthday was probably September 26th or 27th, and no overlapping wedding anniversary existed.

Jones hugs -n- disharmony or Luna-Sea
By
Pablow Quarantine
“Coincidence is God’s way of remaining anonymous.” - Albert Einstein
“History repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce.” - Karl Marx
The catchphrase, “Don’t drink the Kool-Aid” is taken from the Jonestown Massacre. Whenever somebody tells you that you’ve “drank the Kool-Aid,” they’re insinuating you are brainwashed, incapable of thinking for yourself like the gullible cult followers at Jonestown. The Jonestown Massacre took place in Jonestown, Guyana on November 18th, 1978. A demonic cult leader named Jim Jones killed nearly a thousand cult followers at an agricultural settlement located in Jonestown during the late nineteen seventies. Jim Jones killed the cult followers at Jonestown with an artificial grape beverage laced with potassium cyanide. Nine hundred and nine cult followers died at the Jonestown Massacre. Two cult followers escaped and survived the massacre. The total amount of cult followers at the Jonestown Massacre equated to nine hundred and eleven. The Jonestown Massacre was the largest American mass killing prior to 9-11.
William de Blasio is the Mayor of New York City. Mayor de Blasio’s birth name is Warren Wilhelm Jr. William de Blasio worked for a communist organization during the nineteen eighties in Nicaragua prior to becoming an American politician. Wilhelm de Blasio is married to an African American woman named Chirlane McCray. Chirlane McCray claimed to be a lesbian before marrying Wilhelm de Blasio in 1994. Chirlane McCray wrote an essay for Essence magazine in 1979 called “I am a Lesbian.” Chirlane McCray and Wilhelm de Blasio honeymooned in a communist nation, Cuba. Because, they’re communists and desire to indoctrinate you into believing all sort of things communists don’t actually believe in like homosexuality.
The Mayor of New York City, Wilhelm de Blasio changed his birth name from Warren Wilhelm Jr. to William de Blasio approximately twenty years ago. The Mayor of New York City claims he changed his birth name from Warren Wilhelm Jr. to William de Blasio because he wanted to honor his mother’s maternal surname rather than conceal a paternal surname, heavily steeped in Nazism. Wilhelm de Blasio’s mother, Maria de Blasio, was a communist and a former editor at Time magazine. Maria de Blasio spread lies and propaganda at Time magazine like Wilhelm de Blasio’s wife spread lies and propaganda about her sexual orientation shortly before venturing into a biracial, heavily politicized heterosexual marriage with the Mayor of New York City.
The last German emperor, Kaiser Wilhelm II possesses the same name as the Mayor of New York City. Wilhelm I was Kaiser Wilhelm’s grandfather and the first emperor of Germany. Wilhelm is a cognate of William hence William de Blasio. Wilhelm is Germanic and translates to forceful and intense like Wilhelm de Blasio. The German empire ended in 1918, shortly after the Spanish Flu spread across the world like the Coronavirus. Woodrow Wilson was the President of the United States of America during the Spanish Flu Pandemic. President Woodrow Wilson contracted the Spanish Flu during the Spanish Flu Pandemic like Donald Trump contracted the Coronavirus in 2020, during Donald Trump’s presidency.
Kaiser Wilhelm II was born January 27th, 1859. Wilhelm de Blasio officially declared a candidacy for Mayor of New York City on the anniversary of Kaiser Wilhelm II’s birthday, January 27th, 2013. The demonic cult leader, Jim Jones was born May 13th, 1931. Wilhelm de Blasio delivered a Coronavirus press conference update on May 13th, 2020. Wilhelm de Blasio gave the Coronavirus press conference update on the 89th anniversary of the demonic cult leader Jim Jones’ birthday.
Wilhelm Frick was a German Nazi. The German Nazi, Wilhelm Frick possessed the same name as Kaiser Wilhelm II and Wilhelm de Blasio. Wilhelm Frick served as Reich Minister of the Interior in Adolph Hitler’s cabinet from 1933 to 1943. Wilhelm Frick was born March 12th, 1877. The Mayor of New York City, Wilhelm de Blasio declared a state of emergency for the Coronavirus pandemic on the anniversary of the Nazi Wilhelm Frick’s birthday, March 12th, 2020. Wilhelm Frick defined the Nazi racial policy and Nuremberg Laws for Adolph Hitler during World War II. Adolph Hitler and Jim Jones were communists and they rose to power preaching equality and social injustice, concealed beneath a veil of deceit like Black Lives Matter.
Eric Mann was a member of the Black Panthers and a lead terrorist organizer for the domestic terrorist group The Weather Underground in the 1960’s. The domestic terrorist, Eric Mann, was arrested in 1969 for conspiracy to commit murder after bullets shattered a Cambridge, Massachusetts police station window. The founders of Black Lives Matter are self proclaimed communists and trained Marxists like the domestic terrorist Eric Mann. Patrisse Cullors is a Black Lives Matter co-founder. The domestic terrorist, Eric Mann, is Patrisse Cullors’ long term mentor. Patrisse Cullors co-wrote a book in 2016 called “When They Call You a Terrorist.” When somebody calls you a terrorist they are generally correct, especially when your long term mentor is a convicted domestic terrorist from The Weather Underground like Eric Mann.
Jenny Durkan is the Mayor of Seattle and former U.S. Attorney under President Obama. President Obama appointed Jenny Durkan to a U.S. Attorney position in Washington D.C. during Obama’s presidency. While mayoring the city of Seattle, Jenny Durkan allowed anarchists and Black Lives Matter extremists to take over a police station and create a murderous autonomous zone in downtown Seattle. A reliable source speaking under the condition of anonymity claims Mayor Jenny Durkan is a plant, working sinisterly for a dark state clandestine organization desiring to create civil unrest in America, simply to cheat America out of a fair and honest 2020 U.S. presidential election.
Wilhelm de Blasio presented the Coronavirus state of emergency at a panel, seated directly in front of an Alexander Hamilton painting. Alexander Hamilton was accused of treason like the treason Mayor Wilhelm de Blasio is brazenly committing against the United States of America and the City of New York. Alexander Hamilton was the treasurer of the United States of America during George Washington’s presidency. Alexander Hamilton became the United States treasurer on September 11th, 1789. September 11th symbolizes an emergency like the state of emergency Mayor de Blasio delivered on the anniversary of the Nazi Wilhelm Frick’s birthday while seated obstinately in front of an Alexander Hamilton painting.
There’s a purple Coronavirus banner hanging directly in front of the panel where Mayor de Blasio delivered the Coronavirus state of emergency. The color of the Coronavirus banner symbolizes the color of the artificial grape beverage Jim Jones used to poison the brainwashed cult followers at Jonestown. The American flag was positioned next to the Alexander Hamilton painting during the Coronavirus state of emergency. The American flag featured at the Coronavirus state of emergency was fully open yet hanging straight down to illustrate subliminally the American empire falling to its demise.
Adolph Hitler attended a communist meeting a year after the German Empire ended. Adolph Hitler attended the communist meeting on September 11th, 1919, American Standard Time. At the communist meeting, Adolph Hitler listened to a speech by one of the early founders of the Nazi Party. The speech recited at the communist meeting was based upon eliminating capitalism and replacing it with communism. September 11th is the day Adolph Hitler became enlightened to communism. The Democratic Party is trying to cease control of America like the Nazis ceased control of Germany shortly after the fall of the German Empire.
Edward R. Murrow said “a nation of sheep will beget a government of wolves.” A police officer killed an African American man inside of a Wendy’s parking-lot on June 12th, 2020. The killing took place in Atlanta, Georgia. The police officer responsible for killing the African American man was a police officer named Garret Rolfe. Rolfe is a derivative of the word wolf. The police officer, Garret Rolfe possesses the same surname as the English settler John Rolfe. John Rolfe was an English settler during the 1600’s. John Rolfe created the first tobacco plantation in Virginia. African Americans were enslaved on tobacco plantations like the plantation John Rolfe created in Virginia during the 1600’s. The English settlers established Jamestown, Virginia on May 14th, 1607. Jamestown, Virginia was established the day after Jim Jones’ birth, centuries earlier. Jim Jones birth name is James like Jamestown, Virginia. John Rolfe was killed at a massacre like the Jonestown Massacre and he died near the James River. Jim Jones’ birth name is James like the James River. John Rolfe was married to the Native American, Pocahontas. Donald Trump called Senator Elizabeth Warren Pocahontas because Elizabeth Warren claimed to posses a Native American bloodline. Elizabeth Warren received tax breaks underneath Massachusetts law when she lied about a Native American heritage. Elizabeth Warren lied to you about descending from Indians like Pocahontas. Because she wanted you to drink the Kool-Aid like the Democratic Party and Black Lives Matter. Elizabeth Warren’s first husband was a man named Jim Warren like the demonic cult leader Jim Warren Jones. Jim Jones’ middle name is Warren like Wilhelm de Blasio’s communist name and Elizabeth Warren’s surname. Elizabeth Warren’s paternal birth name is Herring like a red herring. A red herring is a misleading clue deceiving you from unlocking the truth behind your enlightenments. The phrase “Red Herring” derives back to the 1800’s when a little boy threw red herrings to a bloodhound simply to throw the bloodhound off the scent of a prey. Black Lives Matter is a red herring like Elizabeth Warren’s paternal birth name. Black Lives Matter is impersonating a civil rights organization simply to throw you off the scent of a prey.
“Where’s the Beef” is a catchphrase like the catchphrase “Don’t Drink the Kool-Aid.” The catchphrase, “Where’s the Beef,” relates to a classic Wendy’s commercial, advertising a considerably small hamburger patty, nestled inside of an overly colossal hamburger bun. The Wendy’s catchphrase became a cult sensation phenomenon during the nineteen eighties like the catchphrase “Don’t drink the Kool-Aid.” The Wendy's catchphrase symbolizes the superficial substance behind an artificial product you are deceptively being sold. A woman burned down the Wendy’s restaurant in Atlanta, Georgia, shortly after the African American man died inside of the Wendy’s parking-lot. The woman they claim burnt down the Wendy’s restaurant was a white woman ironically named Natalie White. Natalie White possesses the same surname as the color of a race you are being brainwashed to systematically hate. When you reverse Natalie White’s surname with the last syllable of the arsonist's first name you receive white-lie.
The Broadway musical “Hamilton” is based upon African Americans impersonating white slave owners. The cast of the Broadway musical “Hamilton” is comprised of flamboyantly pretentious African American males rather than white alpha dogs like our founding fathers. Aaron Burr was a lawyer and an American politician. Aaron Burr killed Alexander Hamilton in a deadly duel. The deadly duel between Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton was based upon Alexander Hamilton’s sexual affair and treasonous acts against America. Leslie Odom Jr. is an African American actor. Leslie Odom Jr. portrayed an African American-Aaron Burr in the musical “Hamilton.” The actor, Leslie Odom Jr., is married to an African American actress named Nicolette Robinson. Nicolette Robinson co-starred in a cable television show entitled “The Affair” like Alexander Hamilton’s affair that lead to treason. The cable television show “The Affair” debuted on Showtime October 12th, 2014. Leslie Odom Jr. and Nicolette Robinson portrayed a married couple in the 2020 television miniseries “Love in the time of Corona.” Leslie Odom Jr. and Nicolette Robinson portray a married couple in the television miniseries “Love in the time of Corona” like their relationship in real life. Hollywood and Washington are striking fear inside of you about social distancing and compelling you to mistake a fantasy for reality, perversions for love like the themes featured pervertedly in the television miniseries “Love in the time of Corona.” Hollywood and Washington use internal models of the world to desensitize your senses toward forthcoming events prior to them happening. Black Lives Matter and the Democratic Party are attempting to rewrite history like the musical “Hamilton.” Black Lives Matter claims “there’s no place for black face” yet Hollywood seems to have discovered a well lighted, pretentiously gay place for white face. Hollywood and Washington are creating a new racial policy in America like the racial policy Wilhelm Frick created for Adolph Hitler during World War II in Nazi Germany. However, they have to present violent acts subliminally to you without your knowledge before you’re able to accept them when they actually happen. The ABC sitcom “Modern Family” aired an episode in 2016 entitled “Weathering Heights.” The “Modern Family” episode “Weathering Heights” was based upon parodies related to the musical “Hamilton.” The “Modern Family” episode “Weathering Heights” aired the same day as “The Affair” pilot, October 12th, two years earlier. “Modern Family” and “The Affair” were based upon the demonization of the family construct. Hollywood and Washington place dates like 9-11 and October 12th into television shows and movies simply to program your thoughts about a particular subject like treason prior to them happening in real life.
Recently, anarchists destroyed a statue of Francis Scott Key during a riot in San Francisco. Francis Scott Key wrote the Star Spangled Banner. The writer, F. Scott Fitzgerald was named after the writer of the Star Spangled Banner, Francis Scott Key. F. Scott Fitzgerald’s full name is Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald. Francis Scott Key and F. Scott Key Fitzgerald were second cousins thrice removed. Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald’s magnum opus is the classic novel, The Great Gatsby. The Great Gatsby is named after a fictional character in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel. Jay Gatsby is a wealthy tycoon from F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic masterpiece. The novel, The Great Gatsby states Jay Gatsby’s character might possibly be related to the German emperor, Kaiser Wilhelm II. The Mayor of New York City, Wilhelm de Blasio is possibly related to the character Jay Gatsby if only communists like Wilhelm de Blasio were capable of being related to a fictional character from an elegant, beautifully written, historical work of art.
F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote about jazz music during the “roaring twenties.” F. Scott Fitzgerald popularized the term the “jazz age.” F. Scott Fitzgerald brought prestigious acclaim and an exorbitant amount of respect to jazz music with the classic novel The Great Gatsby, arguably the greatest American novel ever written. However, African Americans like Ella Fitzgerald and Louie Armstrong made Jazz music legendary. F. Scott Fitzgerald helped produce black vaudeville in spite of the African American stereotypes he satirically placed inside of his beloved literature. F. Scott Fitzgerald would be deeply saddened and thoroughly appalled to hear anarchists tore down his cousin’s statue knowing what F. Scott Fitzgerald’s literature accomplished during the "roaring twenties" for African American musicians. Anarchists tore down Francis Scott Key’s statue and the rest of our founding fathers statues yet left a statue of the Russian dictator-mass murderer Vladimir Lenin standing unscathed in Seattle. Because they are fascists-hard core Marxists rather than civil rights activists desiring racial equality. Next, the anarchists are going to burn the novel The Great Gatsby. And, they’re going to blame the burning of the novel upon F. Scott Fitzgerald’s raging alcoholism and despicable infidelities rather than censorship if tolerance continues to prevail and the sheep keep partaking from the Kool-Aid that Black Lives Matter and the Democratic Party are slipping into their wine and fluoridated water. Stop drinking the Kool- Aid, otherwise you’re going to wake up fairly soon wishing you were still living in a capitalistic society where elegantly written masterpiece’s like The Great Gatsby were still in existence, thriving ingeniously, eloquently, breathtakingly, irresistibly, in the minds of our youth.
When I was a little boy my neighbor owned a Black Labrador. My neighbor named the Black Labrador Satchmo because my neighbor loved the jazz musician, Louie Armstrong. My neighbor would be labeled a racist today instead of a lover of jazz music if he named a Black Labrador after an African American jazz musician's nickname. An African American family can name a golden retriever Redford as an homage to the actor Robert Redford and nobody will say anything nor care for that narcissistic matter. However, the moment a white man names a Black Labrador Satchmo due to a fondness for an African American trumpet player he’s getting strung up by a noose. Lynched.
Robert Indiana was a homosexual pop artist from the 1960’s. Robert Indiana placed demonic subliminal messages inside of his carnal artwork simply to pervert the minds of the public without their knowledge. Robert Indiana created the iconic Love sculpture in 1970. Robert Indiana’s Love sculpture symbolizes promiscuous sex and debauchery rather than romanticism and chivalry like you've been brainwashed to believe. The letter o featured on the Robert Indiana Love sculpture is crooked and symbolizes brokenness. The center of the o featured on the Love sculpture symbolizes an erect phallus. When you mail a letter with a Love stamp you’re actually sending a message encapsulated inside of a cock rather than an overture sealed in the saliva of love.
Robert Indiana also created the Hope slogan for President Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign. Robert Indiana’s Hope slogan and Love sculpture contain the same demonic subliminal messages. The Hope slogan was unveiled in 2008 at the Democratic National Convention. The 2008 Democratic National Convention where they unveiled President Obama’s Hope slogan took place in Denver Colorado at the Pepsi Center. Pepsi spelled backwards upside down reveals a demonic idiom that reads subliminally: is de“a”d. The Pepsi logo is a depiction of an ancient Chinese symbol illustrating dualism, the Yin and the Yang, the good and evil. Water and fire. When they unveiled Robert Indiana’s Hope slogan at the Pepsi Center during the 2008 Democratic National Convention a legion of demons chuckled noiselessly as the slogan read subliminally: “Hope is De“a”d.”
Bobby Knight is a retired Hall of Fame college basketball coach. Bobby Knight was the head basketball coach at Indiana University from 1971-2000. The pop artist, Robert Indiana was born and raised in Indiana like the place where Bobby Knight coached basketball for three decades, winning three NCAA Division 1 national championships, Indiana University. Bobby Knight’s middle name is Montgomery like Montgomery Ward’s first name. Montgomery Ward was a successful businessman from the 1800’s. Montgomery Ward created the mail order retail chain Montgomery Wards. Eleanore Ward was a famous art dealer from the nineteen sixties. Eleanore Ward possessed the same surname as Montgomery Ward. And Bobby Knight’s middle name was the same as Montgomery Ward’s first name hence the mail order retail chain Montgomery Ward. Andy Warhol and Robert Indiana exhibited Marilyn Monroe paintings at Eleanor Ward art shows. Robert Indiana created a Marilyn Monroe painting called metamorphosis. The Robert Indiana-Metamorphosis painting is a depiction of Marilyn Monroe standing naked in front of a satanic pentagram. The numbers ’26 and ’62 are printed on the Robert Indiana-Metamorphosis painting. The numbers printed on the painting symbolize the year Marilyn Monroe died and the year Marilyn Monroe tragically died. Marilyn Monroe’s birth and death symbolizes a palindrome. A palindrome is a word, number, phrase, or other sequence of characters which reads the same backwards as forward. Marilyn Monroe passed away in 1962, the same year Eleanor Ward curated Andy Warhol’s and Robert Indiana’s first art show at the infamous Stable Gallery. When you connect the stars illuminating Gemini you’ll suddenly become enlightened like something akin to rapture. For Montgomery Ward’s headquarters is located in Monroe, Wisconsin. And, Montgomery Ward’s main warehouse, where the mail order retail chain stored its merchandise, was located on Monroe Avenue in Maryland. Marilyn. Monroe.
There’s a statue standing atop the old, iconic, Montgomery Ward’s building located in Chicago, Illinois. The statue is a depiction of the mythological goddess Diana. The statue of the mythological goddess Diana is called the “Spirit of Progress.” Progressives and Luciferians like Robert Indiana govern and rule Chicago. Diana was the goddess of the hunt, the goddess of the underworld and the goddess of the moon. The goddess Diana possessed a twin sibling in Greek mythology. Diana’s twin sibling was named Apollo. Apollo was the god of the sun. A corona is the white plasma surrounding the sun (Apollo) and moon (Diana) during a solar eclipse. Apollo and Diana were twins like Gemini, the constellation astrologically governing the soul of Marilyn Monroe. When you look at a solar eclipse you’ll discover a darkness illuminating the sun and moon hence the god Apollo and goddess Diana. You’ll see a corona during a solar eclipse. Luciferians are star gazers and they worship satanic deities like the god Apollo and the goddess that stands atop the old, ironic, Montgomery Ward’s building in the progressive city of Chicago. When you look at a solar eclipse, you’ll discover the solar eclipse bares an eerily strange resemblance to an eye. The Coronavirus spread across the world in the year 2020. In Medical terms, 2020 symbolizes perfect vision. However, in worldly terms, 2020 unfortunately symbolizes blindness. Darkness.
George Floyd was born October 14th, 1973. Pink Floyd’s album, The Dark Side of the Moon, was released in the same year as George Floyd’s birth, 1973. Pink Floyd’s, The Dark Side of the Moon, album was released March 1st, 1973. Pink Floyd is named after two African American blues musicians named Pink Anderson and Floyd Council. Pink Anderson passed away October 12th, 1974. Pink Anderson passed away a day and a half after George Floyd’s 1st birthday like a devil incarnate. Pink Anderson passed away on the same date “Modern Family’s” episode “Weathering Heights” and “The Affair” pilot debuted shows of treason. Hate. Perversion. When you look at a solar eclipse, you’ll discover the solar eclipse bares an eerily strange resemblance to an eye. The Coronavirus spread across the world in the year 2020. In Medical terms, 2020 symbolizes perfect vision. However, in worldly terms, 2020 symbolizes blindness. Darkness.
There’s a song featured on Pink Floyd’s album, The Dark Side of the Moon, entitled Breathe like the breath taken from George Floyd. Roger Waters was the bassist and special effects composer for Pink Floyd. Roger Waters possesses the same last name as a vital compound that relieves your body of thirst, a vital compound that exasperates your consciousness during a drowning. Water. The musician, Roger Waters’ birth name is George Roger Waters. George Roger Waters possesses the same first name as George Floyd. And George Floyd possesses the same last name as the psychedelic rock band, Pink Floyd. You’ll discover a song on Pink Floyd’s, Dark Side of the Moon, album entitled Money like the counterfeit money George Floyd tried pawning off as a twenty dollar bill prior to his arrest and subsequent death. George Floyd cried for his mom while a Police Officer named Derek Chauvin chocked him to death. Mom is a palindrome like the life and death of Marilyn Monroe. Gemini. Mom spells the same thing backwards and forward like the palindrome illuminating Marilyn Monroe’s birth and tragic death, ’26 and ‘62. Police Officer Derek Chauvin’s full name is Derek Michael Chauvin. Derek Michael Chauvin’s initials are D.M.C. The nineteen eighties rap group, Run D.M.C. possess the same initials as Derek Michael Chauvin’s initials. The initials of the rap group, Run D.M.C. stand for Devastating Mic Controller. Hollywood and Washington are hypnotizing you with a devastating mic controller transmitting demonically off the moon like the luminescence of a beam. The last song on the Pink Floyd album, Dark Side of the Moon, is called Eclipse like a solar eclipse. There’s a triangle illustrated on the Pink Floyd album, Dark Side of the Moon. The triangle illustrated on the Pink Floyd album symbolizes the “all seeing eye” like the eye you see during a solar eclipse.
Wilhelm is a lunar impact crater. Wilhelm, the lunar impact crater is located on the southern part of the moon. Wilhelm, the lunar impact crater was named after an astronomer named Wilhelm IV, Landgrave of Hesse-Kassel. A long list of Nazi soldiers responsible for killing countless Jews were named Wilhelm like the Mayor of New York City and the lunar impact crater located on the southern part of the moon. They say the moon is a mechanically built satellite rather than a natural astronomical body. An urban legend claims an ancient civilization transported the moon to our solar system from a galaxy somewhere north of Beetlejuice. The urban legend claims the ancient civilization strategically placed the moon into our solar system millions of years ago, simply to hypnotize us and control our thinking. However, that's a conspiracy theory and you shouldn't believe in conspiracy theories like that otherwise you’ll become a wonderful enlightened child of God drunk on the foolery of astonishment rather than the horrors of Kool-Aid.
The Wilhelm Scream is a sound effect filmmakers place subliminally in movies, similar to a devastating mic controller. The Mayor of New York City, Wilhelm de Blasio possesses the same name as the lunar impact crater located on the southern part of the moon and a special effects technique filmmakers place subliminally into movies to distort your thinking and control your thoughts. You hear the Wilhelm Scream in a movie when somebody’s drowning in water or suffocating like George Floyd. A 1951 movie entitled Distant Drums introduced the Wilhelm Scream to cinema. The Wilhelm Scream is heard for the first time during a scene from the movie, Distant Drums. You hear the Wilhelm Scream during the movie when an alligator drags a soldier into a swamp. The Wilhelm Scream is placed into a film simply to pervert a viewer’s mind and distort your thinking and elicit violence inside of us all like a demonic Robert Indiana painting illustrating a false hope for humanity-love. However, that’s a conspiracy theory and you shouldn’t believe in conspiracy theories like that otherwise you might possibly become a wonderful enlightened child of God drunk on the foolery of astonishment rather than the horrors of Kool-Aid.
The classic actor, Gary Cooper starred in the 1951 movie Distant Drums. Gary Cooper passed away May 13th, 1961. Gary Copper passed away on the anniversary of the demonic cult leader Jim Jones’ 30th birthday. Gary Cooper was born May 7th, 1901 and Wilhelm de Blasio was born the following day, sixty years later. Black Lives Matter and the Democratic Party are aggravating the spirit of Gary Cooper. The spirit of Gary Cooper is coming back. The spirit of Gary Cooper is coming back to make atonement for the sins of Jim Jones and Wilhelm de Blasio.
When the alligator drags you into the swamp like the Wilhelm Scream you’re going to wish you didn’t Drink the Kool-Aid Hollywood and Washington and Robert Indiana slipped into your wine and fluoridated water. When the alligator drags you underneath the water and pulls you into the swamp you’ll discover yourself gasping for air, claiming you can’t breathe like George Floyd. Donald Trump is attempting to drain the swamp Black Lives Matter and the Democratic Party and Wilhelm de Blasio are desperately trying to drag you into without your knowledge like the Wilhelm Scream.

2020.10.30 02:00 KaiserWAHelm A Light Touch Part 1. 2020-10-29. 20:00 UTC

Overview
Or
Background
Hirito Kannushi learned of the drug deal going down between
Meet
In a bar in a hidden away corner of downtown, the party was hired to break up a drug deal without killing or hurting anyone.
Run
The first day of the run was all legwork, discovering that the language barrier was a big issue. The party was able to overcome the lack of any manderin speakers with the subtititles of Carnivore Gold. The team chased several leads before finding a box of betameth in a warehouse, the area was scouted and the team left for the day to rest up.
The second day of the run was when the plan to spike the drugs with pepper punch went into action. The team infiltrated the warehouse where the drugs were being held by the yaks. While the sesnors were disabled, Smoke caused the spirits gaurding the place to manifest and assense him, getting her astral signature. Smoke managed to get the yak mage's astral signature off of the spirits and will want to hunt him down. Other than the inteception by the spirits, the tampering went off without a hitch.
Aftermath
The plan went off without a hitch, the only downside is that a yak security mage has the astral signature of Smoke from before the pepper punch went off.
Expenses
50 Nuyen bribe to get Smoke into the office building to a nameless dock foreman

2020.10.29 15:44 dh417 GF wants to live her life in WA, I want to live in MI

Seeking some life advice.
I grew up in Ann Arbor and my entire family lives in the area. I went to Seattle after graduating for a job and have absolutely loved my time here. If I didn’t consider family to be so important, I’d likely stay out here forever. However, raising children nearby and remaining close with my three siblings and parents is very important to me.
I started dating a girl when in Washington and we fell in love. We didn’t discuss where we each wanted to start a family much but both knew that our ideas were conflicting. Everything finally culminated in us ending things because neither is willing to compromise and live their lives on the opposite side of the country from family. I’ve thought and thought about this and I’m certain that I want to be home, it’s just hard giving up on this girl that I saw myself staying with. (We dated for a year) Had anyone experienced a similar situation? Advice?
Additionally, living in Washington has really turned me into more of an outdoors person than I was when I was in Michigan. I regularly go camping in the mountains, drive to national parks on the west coast, fish, and snowboard. As I didn’t seek out these activities as much in when I was in Michigan. Do you think I’ll be able to scratch that itch while living in Ann Arbor?
I should note that a job really isn’t playing into this decision.

2020.10.29 01:12 hiphopthewalrus Offseason Key Dates

The Major League Baseball Offseason™ (presented by Camping World) is an exciting time, and it is full of key dates and things to look out for. Unfortunately, the MLB’s official calendar inexplicably leaves out many of the events that are scheduled to happen. So I put together this more-or-less comprehensive guide of things to keep an eye on over the next few months, so fans don’t miss out.
Oct. 28: Offseason opens. AJ Hinch, Alex Cora, and Jeff Ludnow can now do Zoom interviews for open positions. They each eventually purchase new computer microphones after team executives complain about a strange buzzing sound on the audio of their calls.
Nov. 1: Deadline for exercising/declining options and extending qualifying offer. Notably, the Indians decline Carlos Santana’s option and refuse to make a QO out of sheer terror that he might accept it. The Dolan family sleeps well this night. The Pirates decline Chris Archer’s option, with owner Bob Nutting citing financial troubles after losing millions on his latest business venture: a series of children’s books on the dangers of happiness. Likewise, the Cardinals decline to pick up Kolten Wong’s option after their own troubles with their beer business, which assuredly lost tons of money during a pandemic when people had much better things to do.
Nov. 2: Alex Cora is announced to return as manager of the Red Sox. President Chaim Bloom says during his introductory press conference that the Red Sox missed his “steady hand over the last two seasons.” When a reporter points out that Cora has only been absent for one year, not two, Bloom suddenly remembers that Cora was the manager for the disappointing 2019 season. “I’ve made a huge mistake” he says.
Nov. 4: The White Sox announce the return of 76-year-old Tony La Russa as their new skipper. La Russa wastes no time in his introductory press conference denouncing Kevin Cash’s World Series decisions and the entire field of “math.”
Nov. 5: Tigers GM Al Avila surprises everyone by announcing that his son, Alex Avila will join the Tigers as a playemanager. The elder Avila says he loves working closely with his son and is excited for the chance to fire him midseason.
Nov. 7: The Phillies hire some guy from the Rays front office to be GM. Ownership pretends to know who he is, but they actually just picked the person with the best sounding name from Tampa’s website. Regardless, it seems to appease the irrationally angry Philadelphians, who are slightly less stabby this day.
Nov. 8-Dec. 6: Literally nothing happens.
Dec. 6-Dec. 10: Winter Meetings. Nothing happens, but we talk a lot more about it.
Dec. 10-Dec. 20: Nothing happens.
Dec. 21: On the winter solstice, a crowd of angry yinzers burns Bob Nutting in effigy outside of PNC Park in Pittsburgh, as is tradition.
Dec. 22-Dec. 25: Nothing happens.
Dec. 26: Seattle GM Jerry Dipoto trades in all his Christmas gifts for things that are slightly more expensive and less useful.
Dec. 27-Dec. 31: Nothing happens.
Jan. 1: Ken Rosenthal writes his 57th article of the offseason on why nothing is happening. He quotes eight anonymous front office personnel who all contradict each other. He concludes by listing all the things that could happen but aren’t happening. The article is instantly posted to baseball where half the comments are just people complaining about The Athletic’s paywall.
Jan. 2-Jan. 8: Nothing happens. This time in 2021.
Jan. 9: In a cost-saving measure, the Cubs trade former MVP Kris Bryant to the Braves for Austin Riley. Cubs ownership tries to deflect away from the news by leaking that they are maybe, possibly, sorta open to working on a Javier Baez extension. The trade goes mostly unnoticed by a fanbase busy drinking themselves to sleep after watching the Bears lose in the first round of the playoffs 13-6. Atlanta begins working on their own extension talks with Bryant but give up quickly when they realize that he wont accept a deal at 30% of his market rate, which is the upper limit for the Braves when offering players extensions.
Jan. 10: Rob Manfred and Union Chief Tony Clark meet in an attempt to broker a deal in the case that attendance is limited to start the 2021 season. The two sides say they are “hopeful” an agreement can be reached that will end the free agent freeze.
Jan. 11: Talks break down after it leaks that the owners asked the players to accept 15% of their fully guaranteed contractual salaries, citing the harm to their financial wellbeing that the 20% decline in 2020 profits caused.
Jan. 12: Players take to Twitter to call out owners. Trevor Bauer says he will not play for any owner that would try to force players to take pay cuts to protect profits. His agent frantically makes 30 phone calls.
Jan. 15: New Mets owner Steve Cohen flexes his financial muscle by signing George Springer to a 7-year $210M deal. Springer slips on some ice and separates his shoulder while leaving the press conference and is out indefinitely. It is revealed that the White Sox offered Springer a 1 year $25M deal that could have been a 9 year $250M deal through a series of options that vest at 700 plate appearances each season. White Sox brass and talking heads alike are dumbfounded that Springer did not take the deal, which they considered to be “better in some ways than New York’s offer.
Jan. 16: The Indians trade Francisco Lindor to the Dodgers in a three-team deal involving the Padres. The Padres receive an 18-year old short-stop who is highly regarded and also at least 4 years away from the majors. The Indians get back a starting pitcher, drafted in the 16th round, who shares a name with an early-2000’s Disney Channel star, and who will post a 3.25 ERA as a rookie. Rounding out the return for Cleveland are three outfielders who will combine to contribute 0.5 fWAR.
Jan. 18: Arte Moreno, who has gone full Jerry Jones and is now acting as GM of the Angels as well as owner, signs Trevor Bauer to a 7-year $200M deal with opt-outs after each season. When asked about his approach to team building Moreno says, “why have many good player when few good player do trick?” The Angels subsequently sign Shelby Miller and Carlos Rodon to 1 year, $10M deals each to round out the rotation. They are projected to win 76 games.
Jan. 25: The market for Marcus Stroman, now the top remaining free agent pitcher, is heating up. Bob Nightingale tweets that Stroman and the Yankees have reached a deal. 5 minutes later Stroman announces that he is actually opting out of free agency altogether via a tweet that just reads, “sike, bitches.
Jan. 28: Rockies GM Jeff Bridich once again proving that he is baseballs closest equivalent to a living, breathing embodiment of the Dunning-Kruger effect, uses his entire offseason budget to sign relievers Brandon Workman, David Phelps, and Hector Neris away from the Phillies. When faced with criticism from reporters and fans, Bridich replies that, “being a GM is a lot harder than it looks.” Nolan Arenado makes a public request for a trade, but this is completely ignored by the team.
Feb. 2: The Oakland Athletics, in their first offseason without Billy Beane at the helm in 23 years, go on an unprecedented spending spree that includes extensions for Matt Chapman, Matt Olson, and Marcus Semien as well as picking up JT Realmuto and DJ LeMahieu in free agency. Majority owner Lewis Wolff tells reporters, “the money was always there, Billy just refused to spend it.”
Feb. 6: Despite their free spending ways, the A’s are beaten out by Toronto in their quest to resign closer Liam Hendricks, who is brought in to replace the departing Ken Giles. This marks the one acquisition Rogers Communication approves for the Jays all winter. As such, GM Ross Atkins makes a celebration of the signing, calling it “a great day for the Toronto Blue Jays, and therefore, the world.” The mood is dampened somewhat when Hendricks, a native of Australia, posts a video of himself on Instagram Live drunkenly fist fighting with an endangered tazmanian devil. Per Australian law, his punishment is to be kicked in the ass with a large boot. MLB.tv does a live broadcast of the booting except of course for blackout restrictions in New England, the northeastern quadrant of Alabama, Carson City, Nevada, and the state of Iowa.
Feb. 14: The MLBPA and Manfred finally reach an agreement on the season. The players will receive their full salaries in exchange for the complete elimination of the minor leagues. Current minor league players will enter into indentured servitude stitching baseballs by hand until their bonus amounts have been repaid. Both sides are very happy with this compromise.
Feb. 15: Manfred also announces a few rule changes for the 2021 season. To reduce strikeouts, a 4th strike has been added. To speed up the game, pitchers are now required to hold their breath between pitches or be fined. Manfred applauds his own innovation and says that these new rules in no way change the character of the game.
Feb. 20: Bitter rivals, Red Sox and Yankees wage a very public war over who can stay further under the luxury tax. Fans of poorer teams look on in envy, dreaming of the day that they too can have inane arguments about the luxury tax threshold.
Feb. 27: Spring training begins. The Dodgers announce that Cody Bellinger has suffered a severe concussion during practice after Joe Kelly threw a ball 15 feet over the head of the bullpen catcher and hit Bellinger as he was shagging fly balls in the adjacent field. Bellinger takes questions from the media and is not noticeably acting any different. The MLB suspends Kelly for 8 games.

2020.10.29 01:03 ninjaanathann Graff and Labreck: a statistical dive into the Queens of ANW

The Jess(i)es have emerged as the unquestioned top women in ninja. Their incredible consistency has not only separated them into a tier of their own among women athletes but also entered them into the conversation about top ninjas regardless of gender. Comparisons of the two have appeared again and again on this sub so I thought I'd take a deeper look into the stats they've posted throughout their ANW careers.

Graff
ANW 5: Jessie Graff famously made her debut in the Venice Beach qualifiers where she ran the course in a chicken costume. In qualifying she failed the 5th obstacle but was able to place 30th and advanced to the finals. In city finals Graff was unable to scale the Warped Wall in the allotted attempts, placing 28th according to results posted to Sasukepedia. She was able to compete in Vegas, being selected as a wildcard competitor. In stage 1 she failed the Jumping Spider and her rookie season was over.
ANW 7: Graff was unable to compete in season 6 due to her recovering from surgery. In Venice Beach qualifying she again failed the 5th obstacle although she was able to advance to the finals, this time in 28th place. Her city finals run served as her breakout performance on the show as she made it all the way to the 9th obstacle. She finished 6th overall and earned her first legitimate trip to Vegas. In stage 1 she was able to defeat the Jumping Spider however she could not complete the Warped Wall and timed out there.
ANW 8: In Los Angeles qualifying Graff earned her first ever buzzer, placing 11th overall. In City Finals she defeated one of ANW's toughest all-time obstacles in The Wedge. She ended up in 2nd place overall. In Vegas she made history as the first woman ever to hit a buzzer on stage 1. Although her season ended on the next stage, Graff's ANW 8 season stands as the most successful run by a woman athlete to date.
ANW 9: In Daytona Beach qualifying Graff fell on the 5th obstacle Rolling Thunder, the exact same obstacle Jessie Labreck failed a season earlier in qualifying. She placed 26th on the night. In the City Finals Graff made it all the way to the final obstacle before falling, earning her 4th place. In Vegas she looked poised to complete stage 1 for the second straight year before shockingly failing the final obstacle.
ANW 10: Graff earned her second qualifying buzzer in Miami, finishing 10th overall. Miami City Finals saw her fall on the 9th obstacle, finishing 5th on the night. Due to a scheduling conflict with her work as a stunt woman Graff was unable to compete in Vegas despite qualifying.
ANW 11: Competing in Seattle/Tacoma Graff hit her third qualifying buzzer, placing 8th overall. She made another deep run in City Finals, falling at the 9th obstacle. She placed 3rd overall on a night that saw zero finishers. In Vegas she failed stage 1 on the third obstacle, the Double Dipper. This was Graff's worst performance in Vegas.
ANW 12: In Season 12 Graff hit yet another qualifying buzzer, her 5th time finishing a course. She placed 9th overall. In the finals she made it the 8th obstacle before falling. It is shown that she placed 12th, although this may not be accurate due to other factors.

Labreck
ANW 8: Labreck was a breakout star in her first season competing and has never looked back. In Philadelphia qualifying she failed the 5th obstacle, Rolling Thunder, and placed 28th on the leader board. In City Finals she made it all the way to the 9th obstacle. No athlete was able to complete the course that night and Labreck finished 10th, legitimately qualifying for Vegas on her first attempt. Like Graff in her first Stage 1 run, Labreck also fell on the Jumping Spider.
ANW 9: Labreck earned her first ever buzzer in Cleveland qualifying, finishing 12th overall. In City Finals she fell on the 8th obstacle which was good for 15th place overall and another trip to Vegas. She pieced together a solid Stage 1 run and it appeared she would finish before failing the transition to the cargo net on the final obstacle.
ANW 10: Indianapolis qualifying saw Labreck hit another buzz, finishing 10th overall. She also became the first woman ever to attempt the Mega Wall, although she was unable to complete it. Another deep run in City Finals saw her fail the 9th obstacle, putting her in 12th place. Similar to her previous Stage 1 run Labreck was flying until she failed on the final obstacle.
ANW 11: Labreck completed another qualifying course when she hit a buzzer in Cincinnati qualifying, good for 6th overall. In City Finals she made history history along with Michelle Warnky when they became the 2nd and 3rd women to hit ever hit a buzzer. She finished 6th on the night. Unfortunately her Vegas demons reared their heads again when she failed the transition to the rope climb on the final obstacle in Stage 1.
ANW 12: Labreck hit her fourth straight qualifying, and fifth overall, buzzer in Season 12 where she placed 11th overall. In the Finals she failed the 9th obstacle and finished outside of the top 12, placing 13th. This marks the first time in her career that she has failed to legitimately qualify for any final.

Stats Breakdown
Graff Qualifying:
Average Obstacle- 5.57/6
Average Place- 17.43
Labreck Qualifying:
Average Obstacle- 5.8/6
Average Place- 13.4
Graff Finals:
Average Obstacle- 8.57/10
Average Place- 8.57
Labreck Finals:
Average Obstacle- 9/10
Average Place- 11.2
City Finals Buzzer
Graff Vegas:
Average Obstacle- 5.8/8
Stage 1 Buzzer
Labreck Vegas:
Average Obstacle- 7/8
Buzzers:
Tied- 5 each

So there it is, a fairly complete breakdown of their ninja careers on the show up to this point. The statistical comparisons really show how incredibly close is it between these two and it really backs up the notion that these two are in a class of their own among women athletes. And tonight we get to watch these two compete on the same "finals" course for the very first time. Should be a treat to watch!

Microsoft SWE Intern Experiences + Devices

My offer from Microsoft is for SWE but it is in the Experiences + Devices team which seems less interesting than Cloud + AI, but that part is nonnegotiable. Amazon will not confirm which organization i'll be working in (AWS, Operations, etc.) until 60 days before the start date.
I really care about new grad TC and working on the most in demand work. I have mainly developed Full Stack Web Apps(System design and machine learning) and C++ multi-threaded server projects. Does this make me more suitable for Cloud or Operating System related stuff?
Could people describe their experiences with the above roles?

2020.10.28 23:17 u-turnshe I rewrote this for anybody who has the time and the heart to help GIVE ADVICE TO my daughter with this unnecessary situation when it comes to fighting their DVfather abusive Court matter

Their father recently worked for the local internet company and decided to spy on me. He has admitted it openly. I don't have perfect evidence but enough harassing and threatening text messages stating he knows everything and he doesn't care. He made comments that only you would know if you had read all my emails. I lost a lot of evidence after, I lost the online accounts. I could not seem to share any data from Mobile to computer and it was impossible to connect to any printers. I went to a few stores hoping that I could print off from Dropbox or an email but I realized that their security system was not having it and I was possibly risking their printers.
He later quit the internet company to work for the electric company and a little for Microsoft .
Once he spied on me long enough that he felt he had enough dirt on me. Enough to blackmail me to raise my child support to a unaffordable an unreasonable amount. When I already paid 100% for the children and paid a good amount of child support every month to him when I had them 40% of the time . I could not afford to pay it.
Which then gave him more reasons to be more agressive and threatening towards children and I. His famous lines were, You don't pay you don't see them! So I give him whatever I could afford at that moment on top of everything else. So they could be their mother and grandparents in peace and a moment without fear of their father. He decided to kidnap my younger one during the summer right before I was going to take her on her summer vacation with a girlfriend and brother. I would have always had her that summer month. I knew she was going to be forced to stay in a basement while everybody had fun and even worse he would take the phone from the children even if I purchase and financially supplied it. My children have been going through domestic violence mentally and somewhat physically their entire life.
The day of the trial hearing, I had denial of service attack. Which is where I could not get Wi-Fi nor data on mobile. That I have always paid for.
Which made it so my alarm didn't go off and I was late for trail hearing! The judge said we are going to get a guardian of alliance to see if I go to jail for all the ridiculous untruthful contempt hearings we had for a stretch of 8 months. We never even had a parenting plan. The judge insisted in courts insisted we did.
The GAL said the children would be safe with me if I was more stable. got the children need to spend more time with me which surprised me because she was not nice to me in the beginning she had her mind made up about me but she could see that the children and I were very close. She recommended that the children live with my parents because I removed around too much. I was unsure why she said that but when you search me and do a background check it says online it I have about 7 more addresses than I actually never lived at. She basically stated everything I had been trying to prove to the courts was true! She stated multiple times that our kids were not safe with him and his wife. Why would they go out of their way to hire one if they weren't going to listen to her?
My son , 17 yrs, even went to court and filed for two restraining orders & provided proof of physical abuse and he to was denied. The judge did not seem to feel as if there was any abuse .
I received a call from my children's father right before our trial. I was hoping you wanted to discuss the children. Or even better call his son that he had been neglecting for 6 months. He refused to go back to his house. After he was physical attacked his father and wife. After picking up his phone call I noticed that he wasn't actually on the line and from the receiving end I could hear loud sounds of screeching computers. Similar to a fax machine nose. I that something bad might have happened because I know the type of person he is. I'm sure what to do, I just moved on.
I would like to make this shorter than it needs to be so I don't bore anybody who is still reading thank you.
Shortly after that I lost all my online accounts and had a brute Force attack.
My last pass and keeper did not help me either because I couldn't reach them. Or because they chose not to help me. I did notice the last time I was able to access my password manager that some of my accounts were changed. My passwords had turned into my social security number. Which I would never do! So my identity, and any form of privacy,and all my digital work, art and memories are gone. my whole digital Life. I worked online so I could be closer and home with my children. I truly loved it. So that was the issue for me I lost my online business and all my inventory I had already shipped off to the warehouses.
My son who is in high school lost a lot of his hard work and the Mac, I recently purchased for.
I could not access our router majority of the time. while my internet company, where he used to work decided to lie and not help me and said there's no such thing as a network hack.
I could not use my cellular data or Wi-Fi for 2 months. then it was just periodically sometimes I could connect sometimes I could not to my electronics. I lived in a very large home at the time. Majority of the family and roommates still could use the internet on some of their devices. I was the target the victim of this new attack.
I was panicking trying to reach my customers, the company that I subcontracted for but unfortunately I was redirected to spammers every time!
I ended up having to use all of my financial savings to pay rent and buy more mobile devices a new computer and any type of internet security I could possibly fine in a very small town. I could not buy anything else online I had too many online fraud charges that I was continuously fighting at the time. I could not use the vpns I always would get a server error and the antiviruses somehow were rerouted and I would continuously be locked out.
The new electronics I bought would be compromised and controlled within minutes to a day or two. thanks to the smart technology, Internet of things, and local routers . My family can't even reach out for help. With their hack devices. Some of my family members realized that their computer was compromised and replaced it but still too confused to recognize the problems. Internet services with the same local internet company I did. They are constantly having slow connections being overcharged, and additional charges like voice over IP .
I've purchased at least 10 phones in the last year. My cell phone companies either have no clue or ignored me or treatme as If I was a terrorist, who was just begging to get help controlling my data and my children's baby photos.
I've gone through over a hundred new emails . Since I kept losing access to them. Even though I had the password written down in front of me!! I had DNS poisoning so majority of the websites were outdated with viruses. redirected into a html script. I still can't seem to navigate online at all without getting a server error sometimes I can't even access Court forms. My mobile server which unfortunately is not the server that I paid for. Can't always find Wacourt.gov & washingtonhelp.org
I can't seem to talk to a lawyer that I've been approved for multiple times through the Northwest Justice project. For my mobile phone will consistently hang up. I can't call the non emergency 911. My emails don't go through or usually blocked by lost email services and always somehow blacklisted! The websites I visit seem to be cloned in insecure. My JavaScript would not give me access to majority of the security settings in all my browsers. There's always new extensions and apps and open source licenses for untrustworthy certificates being downloaded especially when I have to go back to that community to see my daughter for the courts have just changed things once again. In the past i cannot turn on or off family sharing when I didn't even have a family connected to that mobile device. Can't turn off USB tethering and Google pay and apple wallets have multiple transactions, not by me. PayPal is somehow connected to a new phone number of mine by an email that's similar to my name but it's not mine. I cannot turn on or off these settings for they are lightened out and unavailable for my electronic device. Sim card & ip always changed.
5000 $ in back child support when the courts knew that I could not afford to pay it and when I tried to fight it they would raise my pay and lower his it was not based off the Washington State child support worksheet. 6000$ in international charges hit my credit report along with new phone numbers, Nick names emails and home addresses. I Cant reach for help with the credit unions like Equifax. When my device have so much static white nose and then lose connection. If I try to connect my email account to a computer. It will say I need a physical key to access it. as if I set it up myself. when every computer I own now Is broke or has locked me out.
I gave up but was sad because I could not keep tabs or communicate with my children. unless I borrowed a phone. They mapped out my family and contacts so if I were to borrow a phone and try to reach out for help I usually reached spam or foreign hotline or got disconnected.
Then the locals were acting strange. Like sitting outside our house taking photos of us. Items were stolen off our property. When we were out of town. Then the landlord had strange men over pretending to fix things that didn't need to be fixed, installing pipes underground , laying down new soil& having some Wi-Fi farming company working in our yard at 5:00 a.m. I also notice a few times the electric companies employee's were messing with our power boxes, in the middle of the night . Then My my photos came out extremely bright. Almost as if there was someone photoshopping lightning in the background that's how bad it was it gets worse are our family videos look like we lived in a microwave oven.
I know it's very strange! I do have evidence. After I moved out I went to a place that was even closer to my children's father not by choice but because this experience made me semi homeless.
If I would get a new router for that home. my children's father would come over take the phone he had purchased my daughter when he started taking me Superior Court. For a parenting plan we never had! Anyways he demanded her phone said he needed to put some new passwords in it within hours of the router change. When I would purposely break the router his electric company would show up before the internet cable company would. Not surprised to see them across the street fixing the power lines.
I bought our daughter a new phone for when she comes to my new home. He reports to the courts that I stole it from her and won't let her have it back when she never wanted it for he didn't provide data. Every time he's upset he turns around and puts another restraining order on me and our daughter. she gets only 5 gb and ends up with no data within a couple days and has to use Wi-Fi all the time. I did not have Wi-Fi so why not buy her another phone when she's in my new home.
Going a few months back,
Apple finally told me they couldn't help me with the iPhone because it was a government issue. I thought that was hilarious for I didn't do anything wrong unless the person who was using my accounts did. I figured it would pass I mean if you're under an investigation. it would only be for a few months right ? Not two years ! well nothing happened I mean there was no reason for anything to happen. I noticed that the police were driving by the old house a lot. Then I thought maybe it must have been my roommate they might be after. Then why am I the one who lost everything and is dealing with network abuse. My roommate was in a bad guy he did have a bit of a criminal history but nothing considered to be violent maybe just a couple drunken stupid events.
Then during the process of moving my children and roommates out of the house.while driving my car mysteriously blew up because of some electrical issue. Luckily the children were not in the car. There were no warnings & no issues with the car. It took the fire department about two minutes to find me but it was totaled. I could not afford to fix it or have a mechanic look at that time. Then somebody I did not know had it towed and I lost it.
the next house that I temporary was staying at. I was in the router settings I could not seem to get in there very often for the site would never load. I saw it was being port forwarding to a local Bitcoin mining pool!! Before I could screenshot it. I received another server error .
He continues to harass me and threaten me or he knows everything we do in our own privacy, our own bedrooms, where we're going, who we're going with, how much money says he's recording everything. It seems to know everything before I can even share it with a girlfriend.
Now He's throwing everything against me in The family Court and continues to commit perjury while I have proved him wrong multiple times but still aren't getting the protection and respect in this local small town courtroom! I have currently moved to Spokane Washington to get away from this! I do the traveling for the judge says that until I mental health diagnosis hair follicle test I am not allowed to take my daughter from to Spokane Washington. he gave me a month's time and then he says he's going to take all rights away ! Till then he is Requiring me to stay with my children at my parents home. When she is Sun's 18 now. She almost fully grown she is going to be 15 a week. Can't she have a say in who she feels safe enough to live with? that is fine I will do anything for my daughter even though it's pretty unfair that I have to pay for it all myself when they know I have no job or I've been constantly fighting this battle and keeping a phone that will keep a safe connection. when him and his wife both have huge histories of assault and domestic violence and drug charges I have no criminal history no drug history . I need some sort of help so he can't keep destroying every electronics. after calling my daughter when I do get a new phone number I start l receiving spam and scripts over SMS and once I go to my parents more and more viruses are downloaded. Why are we being dragged into this non-stop I want to be able to get a job and move forward not sit here and fight their viruses then more court dates with continuous false claims Non-Stop petti drama!
I've been told multiple times by a few computer companies and files that I have some sort of invisible beacon. How ?
The Seattle times paper has reported that the local electric company and crypto miners are being punished for unauthorized usage of other families in the small town electricity for maximum power leaving us in an unsafe situation to build more cryptocurrency .

2020.10.28 19:08 TheBishop7 The 2020 playoffs are approaching. Who should I root for? (3.5 Weeks Remain)

You may remember this weekly post from the last six seasons. This post is designed to give you an idea of who to root for in MLS matches not featuring The Black & Gold, yet including teams that still have an effect on The Crew's final standings.
 

Last Week

Things actually went okay for the Crew last week, despite Philadelphia really pulling away with the Supporter's Shield and Seattle passing Columbus on goal differential.
Orlando dropped the ball in Miami, Seattle and Portland drew, and the Red Bulls dropped 3 points all but ensuring they can no longer pass Columbus in the standings.
 

Who should I root for?

Listing (EDT) Home Team Away Team WSIRF? TV
Wednesday 7:00pm New York Red Bulls New England Revolution Red Bulls
Wednesday 7:30pm FC Cincinnati Sporting Kansas City FCC
Wednesday 7:30pm Orlando City SC Atlanta United FC AUFC
Wednesday 7:30pm Philadelphia Union Chicago Fire Fire
Wednesday 7:30pm Toronto FC New York City FC NYC
Wednesday 8:00pm Minnesota United FC Colorado Rapids Rapids
Wednesday 8:30pm FC Dallas Inter Miami Inter
Wednesday 10:00pm Portland Timbers Los Angeles Galaxy Galaxy
Wednesday 10:30pm Los Angeles Football Club Houston Dynamo Dynamo
Wednesday 10:30pm San Jose Earthquakes Real Salt Lake Quakes
Note: All matches not nationally televised can be viewed on ESPN+
 
Disclaimer: I realize that cheering for the Fire or Cincinnati or whomever is not something you typically want to do, but remember that this is just statistics, and it is for the Crew's benefit for these results to happen. It also doesn't matter what you shout at your screen. What happens, happens, regardless of us. Root for the Mutiny, Fusion, or Chivas to win for all I care.

2020.10.28 18:52 Cappie-Floorson Second response to u/Rabid-Ami

Over the past six months, Trump has been making increasingly false, absurd, and dangerous claims - from saying the “only way” he’ll lose in November is in a rigged election to claiming his opponents illegally “spied” on his campaign.
However, not only is he making these claims, the president is corrupting the power of government to inflate his lies to the level of truth and oppress any evidence to the contrary. With the help of loyalists atop every federal agency, Trump has perverted the government to serve his own re-election desires.
This list is nowhere near comprehensive. There are many more examples that could be given, but I tried to keep it short enough that it is still readable.

ODNI and Intelligence Community

Limit disclosure of knowledge of Russian sabotage.
The Office of the Director of National Intelligence, led by Trump loyalist John Ratcliffe, canceled future in-person briefings on election security issues to the congressional intelligence committees. Instead, the ODNI will provide written briefings only.
The change came after a classified briefing in which top counterintelligence official Bill Evanina told House members that Russia is again trying to boost President Donald Trump’s reelection and denigrate his opponent, Joe Biden. Trump was enraged after details of the briefing leaked to the public, revealing that his own administration’s intelligence officers contradict his repeated assertions that Russia is not interfering on his behalf.
Reminder: Trump fired the previous DNI, Joseph Maguire, after learning that one of Maguire’s staff members gave a 2020 election security briefing to the House Intelligence Committee. In the briefing, Maguire aide Shelby Pierson alerted committee members that Russia was interfering in the 2020 campaign in an effort to tip the election in Trump’s favor. In firing Maguire, Trump sent a warning to the entire intelligence community: Trump’s opinion and electoral prospects must be prioritized over facts.

Department of Homeland Security

Twist intelligence to support campaign and personal motives.
Election interference
Former acting Under Secretary of Homeland Security for Intelligence and Analysis Brian Murphy filed a whistleblower complaint alleging that Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf interfered with intelligence assessments in order to benefit Trump politically.
In May 2020, Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf told Murphy to “cease providing intelligence assessments on the threat of Russian interference in the United States, and instead start reporting on interference activities by China and Iran.” Wolf told Murphy those instructions came directly from the White House.
In July 2020, DHS chief of staff John Gountanis intervened to stop publication of an intelligence bulletin warning about a Russian disinformation plot to “denigrate” the mental health of Joe Biden. On July 8, Murphy said, he met with Wolf, who told him that the intelligence notification should be “held” because it “made the President look bad.”
Trump not only attempts to hide intelligence that contradicts the false narrative he continues to push about China actively interfering to boost Biden, according to Murphy Trump’s officials directed him to prioritize intelligence on China and Iran.
It’s disturbing enough for a president and his allies to distort intelligence assessments for political gain, but Murphy’s account suggests something more nefarious—that intelligence authorities and positions of public trust might have been used to engineer the narrative from the outset.
Campaign agitprop
Murphy’s complaint also details that Senior Official Performing the Duties of the Deputy Secretary Ken Cuccinelli ordered him to modify intelligence assessments to make the threat of white supremacy “appear less severe” and include information on violent “left-wing” groups and Antifa. The reason given was “to ensure they matched up with the public comments by President Trump on the subject of ANTIFA and ‘anarchist’ groups.”
Trump has spent months fear-mongering about imagined mobs of far-left activists coming to attack the suburbs. On Saturday, the Trump campaign sent out an “ANTIFA ALERT” text message to supporters, saying “they’ll attack your homes if Joe’s elected. Pres Trump needs you to become a Diamond Club Member.”

Customs and Border Patrol

Cause unrest in Democratic-cities to assist in fear campaign.
Border Patrol agents were among the federal forces sent to Portland to confront and arrest protestors over the summer.
Gil Kerlikowske, former commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection under President Barack Obama, said BORTAC, the unit dispatched to the city, is chiefly trained to pursue fugitives and criminals. "They're clearly the wrong group to be doing this.”
The violence they provoked was featured in Trump’s campaign ads and RNC nomination acceptance speech.
“Trump has ratcheted up political ties to border patrol to another level,” Todd Miller, the author of Empire of Borders, said. “He based his whole 2016 campaign around this, and it is now at the core of his 2020 re-election bid. These are his people.”
Most recently, the Border Patrol produced and published a dramatized video showing a Spanish-speaking attacker stabbing and killing a man in a dark alley after escaping from U.S. agents - “a clip apparently created to dramatize President Trump’s depiction of migrants as fearsome criminals.”

Justice Department

Weaponize the law to harm opponents and save himself.
Investigate Trump’s rivals
Trump and Attorney General Bill Barr are reportedly pressuring U.S. Attorney John Durham and his team to release the results of their probe before the November election. Durham was appointed by Barr to investigate the origins of the Mueller investigation and the FBI’s Russia probe. Last week, a highly respected and experienced prosecutor, Nora R. Dannehy, resigned as a senior aide to Durham due to concern over this improper political pressure.
Trump has publicly expressed impatience with the Durham investigation, saying there should be more prosecutions and disclosures of information that would damage his political rivals. Last month, Barr indicated the DOJ would not respect an informal policy against taking investigative steps 60 days before Election Day.
In a speech on Wednesday, Barr essentially rebuked the Mueller investigation and the cases it spawned: “Smart, ambitious lawyers have sought to amass glory by prosecuting prominent public figures since the Roman Republic. It is utterly unsurprising that prosecutors continue to do so today to the extent the Justice Department’s leaders will permit it. As long as I am Attorney General, we will not.”
Assist Trump’s allies
Attorney General Barr has explicitly interfered in at least two criminal cases against Trump’s allies, helping the president promote the narrative that the Obama administration (in which Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden served) acted inappropriately. In February, Barr overruled career federal prosecutors in order to recommend the former Trump campaign advisor Roger Stone receive a lesser prison sentence. The entire team of prosecutors resigned from the criminal case due to the Justice Department’s interference. Trump ultimately commuted Stone’s 40-month sentence, much less than the original recommendation of seven to nine years in prison.
Then, in May, the Justice Department filed a request to drop the criminal case against Trump's first national security adviser, Michael Flynn, despite the fact that Flynn twice - before two separate judges - admitted to lying to the FBI. In response, nearly 2,000 former DOJ employees called for Barr’s resignation, saying he had “assaulted the rule of law.”
Politically-motivated actions
Barr reportedly told prosecutors to explore aggressive charges against people arrested at recent demonstrations across the US, even suggesting bringing a rarely used sedition charge, reserved for those who have plotted a threat that posed imminent danger to government authority.
The AG asked prosecutors in the Justice Department’s civil rights division to explore whether they could bring criminal charges against Mayor Jenny Durkan of Seattle for not acting immediately to disrupt the police-free zone created by protestors over the summer. According to the Associated Press, charges were also explored against city officials in Portland, Oregon, for the continued protests in the area.
The Justice Department is targeting Democratic governors for coronavirus outbreaks in state-owned nursing homes. The four governors - PA’s Tom Wolf, MI’s Whitmer, NJ’s Murphy, and NY’s Cuomo - are frequent targets of Trump for not lifting pandemic restrictions as fast as he’d like. Republican-run states have very similar rules about nursing home admissions yet are not under DOJ investigation.
Just yesterday, Barr publicly bashed states that still have restrictions in place, saying that “stay at home orders” are “like house arrest.” Incredibly, Barr added: “Other than slavery, which was a different kind of restraint, this is the greatest intrusion on civil liberties in American history."
  • More: In April, Barr issued a memorandum directing the nation’s U.S. attorneys to be on the lookout for public health rules that might, among other things, constitute “undue interference with the national economy.”

CDC and FDA

Rush coronavirus treatments to save his election chances.
At the end of March, the FDA issued an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) to allow hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine for coronavirus COVID-19 treatment after weeks of pressure from Trump. For instance, eight days before the EUA, Trump tweeted that hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin could be "one of the biggest game changers in the history of medicine" and should "be put in use immediately."
Ultimately, the FDA revoked its EUA in June after more evidence revealed hydroxychloroquine can cause “serious cardiac adverse events.”
Experts say the FDA again caved to political pressure when it approved an expanded use of convalescent plasma to treat covid patients, the night before the Republican National Convention. Despite concerns over plasma’s effectiveness, Trump called Dr. Francis S. Collins, the director of the N.I.H., to tell him: “Get it done by Friday.” When it wasn’t, Trump took to Twitter to accuse those at the FDA of being part of the “deep state” withholding an approval “to delay the answer until after November 3.” The next day, the FDA announced its approval.
Finally, and most obviously, Trump has pressured the FDA to approve of a coronavirus vaccine before the November election. Experts across the board have said there is no way our government and existing infrastructure will be ready to distribute, administer, and track doses by November.
Trump, Sept. 2: "[It's] going to be done in a very short period of time -- could even have it during the month of October… We’re going to have a vaccine very soon, maybe even before a very special date. You know what date I’m talking about” (clip 1 and clip 2.
Just yesterday, Trump contradicted CDC chief Robert Redfield’s timetable for the vaccine, saying the doctor was “confused” in his congressional testimony.
"If you're asking me when is it going to be generally available to the American public, so we can begin to take advantage of vaccine to get back to our regular life, I think we're probably looking at third, late second quarter, third quarter 2021," Redfield told a Senate appropriations subcommittee.
"I think he made a mistake when he said that. It's just incorrect information," Trump said about Redfield's vaccine timeline. Following Trump’s repudiation, a CDC spokesman walked back Redfield’s statements to be in line with the president’s. "He was not referring to the time period when Covid-19 vaccine doses would be made available to all Americans," the spokesman said.

Department of Health and Human Services

Convince the public that the pandemic is gone.
DHS is bidding out a more than $250 million contract to a communications firm as it seeks to “defeat despair and inspire hope” about the coronavirus pandemic. Among the goals of the contract: “sharing best practices for businesses to operate in the new normal and instill confidence to return to work and restart the economy.” In other words: exactly what Trump has tried to project onto the nation despite his failure to effectively contain the spread of the coronavirus.
As the House Oversight Committee has expressed, “rather than focus on planning and executing a national strategy to contain the coronavirus, the Trump Administration is using a quarter of a billion dollars in taxpayer money to fund what appears to be a political propaganda campaign just two months before a presidential election.”
Remember, the pandemic crisis still gripping America is Trump’s own creation. Olivia Troye, Pence’s top aide on the White House coronavirus task force, went public yesterday with her firsthand experiences. She relays that throughout the pandemic, Trump was consumed by himself and his prospects in November. “For him, it was all about the election,” Troye said.
Instead of trying to help Americans and slow the spread, Trump is spending 250 million taxpayer dollars to try to convince us not to believe our own eyes and ears.

US Postal Service

Discredit vote-by-mail and suppress the vote.
President Trump on Thursday continued his months long campaign against mail-in voting this November by tweeting that “MAYHEM” will occur in states that send ballots to all registered voters. In another tweet, Trump falsely asserted that “the Nov 3rd Election result may NEVER BE ACCURATELY DETERMINED” due to nine states running universal mail-in voting.
By casting doubt on mail ballots and the election results, Trump is trying to accomplish two things: (1) persuade voters not to participate in the election, and (2) claim victory prematurely, or even after a decisive loss.
To this end, Postmaster DeJoy - a big donor to Trump’s campaign - has sent confusing misinformation to voters in these states that automatically send registered voters ballots by mail.
DeJoy has also implemented changes at USPS that significantly slowed the delivery of mail, making it harder for people to vote by mail with confidence and, likely, scaring some people away from voting at all in the middle of the pandemic. Trump is betting on these changes having a bigger impact on Democrats than Republicans, especially considering the fact that he has spent nearly the entire year downplaying the threat of the coronavirus to his base.
  • Note: Barr is also cranking out false public statements to discredit vote-by-mail, whether it’s falsely claiming it’s vulnerable to a massive foreign-engineered conspiracy or blatantly misrepresenting actual domestic cases of fraud.

National Park Service

Assist in taxpayer funded staging of campaign events.
Yes, even the National Park Service has been corrupted by Trump, via former oil industry lobbyist and Secretary of the Interior David Bernhardt. Most recently, the NPS produced what appears to be a campaign ad, with no other purpose than promoting Trump. In fact, the words “PRESIDENT TRUMP” in all caps are the first words to appear on screen. The video likely breaks the law:
The federal Anti-Deficiency Act prohibits the use of federal funds for purposes other than those Congress has authorized… if Congress has not authorized the Interior Department to use our money to create campaign ads (and it hasn’t), then the Interior Department cannot legally create campaign ads. In addition to this general prohibition against using funds for unauthorized purposes, there is an express prohibition against propaganda.
Additionally the NPS allowed Trump to take over Mount Rushmore National Memorial for an air and fireworks show ostensibly to celebrate Independence day. In reality, Trump used the event to rail against Democrats, promote his statute-protecting executive order, and warn of a "left-wing cultural revolution." Put differently, it was a campaign event in the middle of a national park.
In June, U.S. Park Police (officers of the NPS) took part in forcibly removing peaceful protestors with tear gas and rubber bullets from the area in and around Lafayette Park, a national historic landmark and public place, for the president's photo-op with a bible. And in 2019, the Park Service used $2.5 million in fees paid by national park visitors to fund President Trump's "Salute to America" celebration in the National Mall.
Of course that’s all fake too and I need to just give up and get some sort of “real” taking point that doesn’t involve trump being unfit as a president and instead blames Biden for things trump did during his lockdown. I have nothing else to try. There’s literally no way that this gets resolved. I bid you a fucking horrible day, I hope once you or someone you know dies from coronavirus that you remind yourself how good of a job the president did and that the virus isn’t that bad.

2020.10.28 07:57 AndyruAround I [M24] dated the girl [F23] of my dreams and now am getting over it.

Hello Reddit. :)
I wanted to share a story about having "the perfect relationship" and what came after it, in hopes that folks my age, younger, and older may find some hope in moving on. There are lots of crazy details, so this will be part 1, the "how we met" story and if people are still interested I can give the "how it ended" story, and then a "what happens next" section because all three are separate, absolutely insane, absolutely true stories. If this isn't the right place for my tale, please direct me elsewhere!
I'll start with a bit of context. I was raised in Washington state and graduated from undergrad at 20 with my BA thanks to a program called Running Start. I left Seattle to live in Chicago for a year for a service program, and I returned to Seattle in fall of 2017 to live with some old friends from school. I wasn't allowed to date in the program I had just finished, so as a 21 year old single man, I was ready to hit the ground running!!
My first weekend home, an old roommate of mine (named Mark) asked if I wanted to go with him to Salem, OR, to view the Solar Eclipse that was happening that year. I agreed and we began the road trip down to OR. Once we were on the road, I asked him for the first time who we were planning on staying with? It turns out that his plan was to stay with the best friend of his girlfriend at the time. The best friend's name was Emi. The part he failed to mention until that point was that he had never hung out with Emi before, only met her in passing, but we were planning on spending the WHOLE WEEKEND with her family. Needless to say, I was shocked.
When we arrived, we received even more shocking news: that her dad and brothers were gone for the weekend. So Mark and I spent the whole weekend with this stranger, Emi, and her mother.
I was immediately struck by how cute Emi was, but obviously as a guest in her home was not about to make any moves, we had just met! During this weekend I found out that she was leaving the week after we were there to do a quarter long semester abroad in Ecuador. Being the super smooth guy I am 😅😅, I explained to her how I was familiar with living far from home (having spent the last year in Chicago) and I offered to keep in touch with her while she was gone, so that she would have someone she wouldn't have to explain everything to again when she returned. She agreed, we exchanged contact information, and Mark and I left at the end of a surprisingly lovely weekend.
I returned to Seattle and began a period that my friends would come to refer to as my "Season of L's". Every girl I was interested in shot me down, time and time again. It was a rough couple months, but the silver lining through the whole thing was the fact that I kept in touch with Emi via WhatsApp and we even got to FaceTime a few times!!
Later she would tell me that her roommates in Ecuador would always ask who the boy was that she was talking to, was she dating him?? And she would reply, "yeah I actually have no idea why I keep talking to this guy, I don't even really know him??" LMAO
When her study abroad ended, she came back to the States and returned to school in WA in January. We hung out a few times and every time felt so electric, I knew there was something different about this girl!! After a month of hanging out irl to make sure it was real, it was time to share my feelings.
I knew she was someone who needed time to process things, so I wrote her a letter explaining how I felt about her. I knew she had to work and write a paper that night, so I asked if she wanted to come after work to hang out for a bit before homework. She agreed and we sat in her car for 15 minutes, where I surreptitiously slid the letter under her passenger seat. She went home and I planned to wait until she texted and said she was done with her paper, to tell her that she had the letter in her possession. I knew if I found out about my crush writing me a letter, I would tear it open and it would consume my thoughts, so I wanted her to finish her work before I let her know about it. I waited up late that night but had to work early in the morning so eventually I caved. I told her about the letter and she texted back "oh, cool. I'm gonna shower and I'll probably just read it in the morning"...
I was shook, because I have no patience, but I laughed it off and went to bed, after asking that she text me in the morning after she read it (I wanted a response ASAP!!!!). This was on a Wednesday night and we had plans to hang the following Monday.
To my horror when I woke, she had texted me later that night saying that she was going to read the letter before bed!!! I texted her, trying to be cool, but asking what she thought about the letter? She replied that we could just talk about it when we hang on Monday (LIKE A FUCKING LUNATIC). Needless to say, the next 5 days I was an emotional wreck. Thankfully I have wonderful friends who were very supportive and provided a great space for verbal processing.
Monday rolled around, time to hang. She is a morning person and I'm a night owl, so we made plans to see the sunrise together (with the caveat that at some point we would pull an all nighter, so we could both try something new). She made baked oatmeal and we drove to a lake to watch the sun rise over the water. The whole time I was terribly nervous, but I didn't want to come right out and ask if she didn't want to bring it up.
After the sunrise, she still hadn't mentioned anything, so I had to ask. She replied that she really appreciated the letter and me being honest about my feelings, but she hadn't dated anyone before and was still figuring out her own identity and beliefs and didn't feel it was the right timing. I waited five days of agony for this rejection!!
I was crushed, but determined to keep my chin up. We spent the rest of the day together in West Seattle, and to date it is still one of my happiest memories...
... And three weeks later, after many more conversations, she agreed to be my girlfriend!!! I was beyond ecstatic, absolutely over the moon!! Persistence had paid off and I finally got to date the girl of my dreams!!
Tl;dr: I met the girl of my dreams through the most unusual of circumstances and at the close of this chapter, we started dating!!

2020.10.28 04:08 girlfromthenorthco Should I (25F) tell my mom I lost my virginity?

I’ll try to keep this short while still giving the necessary details: Earlier this month a moderately famous musician (51M) that I have been acquainted with through Twitter for a few years came to do some album production work in the city I live in, and asked, on a whim, if I would be able to give him a ride from the airport. Being a fan of his and considering I had the free time, I told him yes, and after I drove him to the studio he was working at, he told me he’d pay me back by us going out for drinks in one of the weeks coming up, and I agreed. We went out one of the upcoming evenings, and really hit it off great, spent hours talking about life, music, and the bands he’d toured and played with. As the evening went on, I could sense there was a closeness developing between us, and despite neither of us having drank a ton (we were both tipsy but definitely not stumbling drunk), his chair inevitably got closer to mine and first he held my hand when I was telling him some sentimental story, and then he kissed me. I kissed back, and we wound up going back to the house he was staying in and he took my virginity. It was really good, consensual, enjoyable sex (with protection) and he wanted to cuddle afterwards, which was a bonus, and we really had a lovely time together. I woke up the next morning, we said our goodbyes, and I went home. We met up a couple more times for dinner after that while he was in town, and I spent one other awesome night with him. Now, he’s gone home to Seattle unfortunately, but we still keep in touch regularly, which is nice, and he paid for my ticket into his next virtual concert.
Long story short: while I’m totally comfortable with my choices about my virginity and I know I didn’t get pregnant since we used protection every time and I’m already on the pill for some period related issues, I am wondering if I should tell my mom. My mom and I are very close and never keep secrets from each other, but I did tell her I was going out with friends when I was really going out to spend the night with this guy, and I feel like she deserves to know the truth. I feel bad for lying to her and feel like she deserves to know what really happened, but I’m also worried she will be mad at me for sleeping with this older guy and be worried he took advantage of me, even though he didn’t, or that I threw away my virginity to a guy because I loved his music and was a fan of his. My mom and I are both religious, and while she has never been someone to hammer home the whole “no sex before marriage” thing, it just concerns me she is going to frown upon what happened and the choices I made. But like I said, I also don’t want to not tell her the truth, as I feel like she deserves to know it.
TLDR: A moderately famous musician (51M) who came to produce an album in the city I live in, and we met up and went out for drinks as his way of thanking me for giving him a ride from the airport. That night, however, we really hit it off and wound up spending the night together and having some great (obviously consensual) sex, and he took my virginity. Now, I am concerned about telling my mom what happened, given that I had told her I was going out with friends that night and not with some musician guy I was a fan of. But I also feel like she deserves to know the truth. What should I do?
UPDATE: Thank you everyone who took the time to read this and comment your advice or thoughts, I really appreciate it! For now, I have decided not to tell my mom and just keep this information to myself until a later date when I feel more ready to share it. Thank you! :)

Do you need a copy of Windows included in the budget? If you do need one included, do you have a preference?

This is the current build I am looking at, the CPU is a placeholder for what the price of the new ryzen 5000 series will cost.
