"Drinking the Koolaide" likely originated from LSD adherents and disassociation from their identities, not the suicide cult

2020.07.22 07:14 MarquisBoniFace "Drinking the Koolaide" likely originated from LSD adherents and disassociation from their identities, not the suicide cult

I learned this just recently, while reading about Ken Kesey's attempts to rendevous with Tim Leary
Kesey was a (voluntary, consenting) MK-Ultra subject who became a psychadelic enthusiast, whereas Leary was an active participant and researcher
"Drinking the Kool-aid" was changed to distort it's drug-consequence origins:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Electric_Kool-Aid_Acid_Test
The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test. The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test is a nonfiction book by Tom Wolfe that was published in 1968. The book is remembered today as an early – and arguably the most popular – example of the growing literary style called New Journalism. Wolfe presents an as-if-firsthand account of the experiences...
Funny article on the suicide cult, which coincidentally enough was also a utopian-leftist ideology. The important part though is that Kool-aid became a meme in 1968 thanks the LSD promoting groups, who'd promote taking the Kool-aid (dosed with psychadelics) and make note of the "bad trips", so the term was already established by the time it became grouped in with the suicide cult. It's likely the meme was influenced by both of both of these events, but the origin comes from LSD (then CIA-dominated) circles, and the meaning is similar to the anhedonia induced by opium addiction ("chasing the dragon")
...In an effort to broadcast their lifestyle, the Pranksters publicise their acid experiences and the term Acid Test comes to life. The Acid Tests are parties where everyone takes LSD (which was often put into the Kool-Aid they served) and abandon the realities of the mundane world in search of a state of "intersubjectivity."
Article on the other cult:
http://archive.vn/iJILG
Before we get to the Kool-Aid part, let's recap some horrible American history. Jim Jones was a complex man. Long story short, he was a communist and occasional Methodist minister who founded his own pseudo-church in the late 1950s, called the Peoples Temple Full Gospel Church -- known in short as the Peoples Temple. (And yes, the omission of the possessive apostrophe is intentional, as the name apparently refers to peoples of the world.) While Jones called it a church, it was actually his version of a Marxist commune, with a smattering of Christian references thrown into his sermons/diatribes. The Peoples Temple was arguably a cult, demanding serious dedication (and financial support) from its members.
As the Peoples Temple grew throughout the 1960s, Jones lost the plot on the whole Marxism thing and began to preach about an impending nuclear apocalypse. He even specified a date (July 15, 1967), and suggested that after the apocalypse, a socialist paradise would exist on Earth. And where would that new Eden be? Jones selected the remote town of Redwood Valley, California, and moved the Peoples Temple there prior to the deadline.
As you know, that end-of-the-world deadline came and went with no nuclear holocaust. In the following years, Jones abandoned all pretenses of Christianity and revealed himself to be an atheist who had simply used religion as a tool to legitimize his views. Jones said: "Those who remained drugged with the opiate of religion had to be brought to enlightenment -- socialism." Oh, and Jones was a drug addict, preferring literal opiates to metaphorical ones.
While processing paperwork to help Temple members return to the U.S., Ryan was attacked by knife-wielding Temple member Don Sly, but the would-be assassin was restrained before he could injure Ryan. Eventually the entire Ryan party plus the group of Jonestown defectors drove to a nearby airstrip and boarded planes, hoping to leave. But Jim Jones had sent armed Temple members (his creepily-named "Red Brigade") with the group, and the Red Brigade opened fire, killing Ryan, one Temple defector, and three members of the media -- and injuring eleven others. Those who survived fled into the jungle.
When the murderers returned to Jonestown and reported their actions, Jones promptly started up what he called a "White Night" meeting, inviting all Temple members. But this wasn't the first White Night. On various occasions prior to the murders, Jones had hosted White Night meetings in which he suggested that U.S. intelligence agencies would soon attack Jonestown; he had even staged fake attackers around Jonestown to add an air of pseudo-realism to the proceedings (though it's hard to imagine that such a small community wouldn't recognize their own people pretending to threaten the Temple). Faced with this hypothetical invasion scenario, Jones offered Temple members these choices: stay and fight the imaginary invaders, head for the USSR, head for the Guyana jungle, or commit "revolutionary suicide" (in other words, mass suicide as an act of political protest). On previous occasions when Temple members mock-voted for suicide, Jones tested them: Temple members were given small cups of liquid purportedly containing poison, and were asked to drink it. They did. After a while, Jones revealed that the liquid didn't contain poison -- but that one day it would. And, by the way, he had been stockpiling cyanide for years (not to mention piles of other drugs).
Jones urged Temple members to commit suicide in order to make a political point. Some discussion ensued -- an alternate plan put forth by Temple member Christine Miller involved flying Temple members to the USSR -- but Jones prevailed, after repeatedly telling his followers that Congressman Ryan was dead, and that would bring the authorities soon (an audiotape of this meeting exists, and is just as creepy as you'd think). Jones first insisted that mothers squirt poison into the mouths of their children using syringes. As their children died, the mothers were dosed as well, though they were allowed to drink from cups. Temple members wandered out onto the ground, where eventually just over 900 lay dead, including more than 300 children. Only a handful of survivors escaped Jonestown -- primarily residents who happened to be away on errands or playing basketball when the mass suicide/massacre took place.
The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test, Tom Wolfe's nonfiction book published in 1968. In the book, Wolfe follows Ken Kesey and the Merry Pranksters as they travel the country in their party bus, encouraging non-drug users to try LSD in an Acid Test -- including a formulation of LSD in Kool-Aid, dubbed "Electric Kool-Aid." The book includes possibly the first negative instance of the phrase "drink the Kool-Aid," and it came a decade before the deaths at Jonestown. Wolfe's book includes this passage, describing a man who had a bad trip (emphasis added):
"... There was one man who became completely withdrawn ... I want to say catatonic, because we tried to bring him out of it, and could not make contact at all ... he was sort of a friend of mine, and I had some responsibility for getting him back to town ... he had a previous history of mental hospitals, lack of contact with reality, etc., and when I realized what had happened, I begged him not to drink the Kool-Aid, but he did ... and it was very bad."

Artem Fedor, Ringer

Date of birth: May 7th, 1960
Appearance: 5'10, 170 pounds
Background:
From a redacted KGB report circa 1983
Operative ██████ retrieved from Rendevous █████. Mission Successful. Psychologist noticed something off during debriefing. Operative ordered to report for evaluation. Two weeks later, Doctor █████████ found dead at home of an apparent suicide. No foul play suggested. Operative ██████ later cleared to resumed fieldwork.
Translated North Korean Document circa December 1989
Operatives were sent to observe contacts and potential targets in Berlin after the fall of the Berlin Wall. Within two weeks, all ██ operatives had been murdered.
CIA Field Report, September 1994
Hutu Politician spotted in Freetown, Sierre Leone attempting to secure passage to Argentina via a cargo ship. Two operatives moved in to secure the politician while two remained back to observe. Sniper fire from an unknown assailant struck the politician and one operative, killing them instantly. Shooter not found.
2020 FBI report on wanted target known only as Ringer
Believed to be former KGB stationed in Eastern Europe through the late 80s who later worked in North Africa in the early days of the FSB. Later went rogue or freelance with suspected kills in South East Asia throughout the early 2000s. Target's appearance and true name unknown.
Target was hard to track through the mid to late 2000s with details hard to come by. Target believed to have acquired metahuman powers in 2020. Killings under their M.O. became increasingly more common. Additional resources and manpower to help with finding and subduing target requested.
REQUEST APPROVED
CIA Report, 2021, Leaked on 4Chan from an unknown source after the assassination of a terrorist bank-roller in Chicago
The FBI failed to apprehend ██████ in Chicago. Even with his escape, he was tracked to a safehouse but appeared to be extracted before teams could move in. Evidence at the scene indicates ██████ may have been taken to Russia by force.
FBI radio picked up the █████ word ██████ spoken by ██████ after he killed four CIRG agents.
██████ was thought to be a █████ or ██████████ assassin who disturbed agency operations in ████████████████████████ during the last decade of the twentieth century. Previously ██████ and ██████ were thought to be completely different individuals. New evidence suggests they are one and the same. This means ██████ likely turned rogue earlier than previously speculated.
Internal GRU memo, early 2021, retrieved via telepathy scrying, and sold to NSA info-broker.
Ringer was retrieved from America after an anonymous tip-off to where he would be following a job. Following Ringer's extraction to Moscow, he was incarcerated for 36 hours total, 27 of which included interrogation before he disappeared from the view of all cameras and metahumans in the facility.
When additional backup arrived, 12 individuals and 3 metahumans in the facility had been killed, with the remaining agents on site completely unable to locate Ringer. He is believed to have returned to America.

2020.07.03 19:36 Mr_Otters Ranking Every (Canonical) Season of Star Wars TV

In lieu of yet another movie rankings post, I thought we'd discuss something else instead. Below are all 14 seasons of Star Wars TV ranked (subjectively, of course) by me and the top arcs/episodes from each. Spoilers throughout:
14. Clone Wars - Season 1
The animation is impressive out of the gate, but I think they were still trying to figure out where they were going with their scattershot, non-linear arc approach. The end result is a lot of big, but ultimately forgettable battles without much time spent establishing characters before diving in. It's not bad by any means, but I can't see myself coming back to it. Good luck deciphering Jar Jar in "The Gungan General" - the only episode where they couldn't get Ahmed Best to voice him.
Top 3 Arcs: Grievous/Gunray arc, Ryloth arc, Malevolence arc
13. Resistance - Season 1
If Clone Wars runs the risk of doing too much out of the gate, Resistance has the opposite challenge. It takes AWHILE to pick up any momentum and it took me a bit to get used to the animation style. While all Star Wars is for kids and I think that's a positive thing, this felt the most explicitly so to the point of me checking out at times. However, once the plot with the First Order kicks into gear there's a strong story around weighing security versus freedom that felt cohesive.
Top 5 Episodes: No Escape, The First Order Occupation, Descent, The Core Problem, The Platform Classic
12. Clone Wars - Season 3
A Jekyll/Hyde situation where the top arcs are pretty solid, although I don't think they overcome the weaker ones. It's hard to track a throughline or a theme in this one and frequently feels like a set-up for the later seasons. It's all very creative - particularly the Avatar Spirit World-esque Mortis arc. Still, I can't get "Hunt for Ziro" out of my head... easily the most disturbed I've been watching Star Wars and I hope I never see it again.
Top 3 Arcs: Mortis Arc, Kamino Arc, Bonteri Arc
11. Resistance - Season 2
By putting the Colossus on the run at the beginning of the season, everything is better paced and has a stronger sense of urgency. The duel plots of Doza trying to remain in control of the platform and Tam joining the First Order are both strong when they are in focus. All-in-all it's competent, but aside from some pretty good dogfighting, it lacks the mmph to compete with the better seasons on this list.
Top 5 Episodes: No Place Safe, Rebuilding the Resistance, The Escape, Station to Station, Rendevous Point
10. Rebels - Season 2
Cinematic ending aside this one doesn't have the cohesiveness of the first and last seasons of Rebels, nor the list of all-star episodes of season 3. It's ultimately very workmanlike in giving certain characters a chance to shine and setting up the last two seasons. But it beats out some of it's predecessors by being character-focused, linear, and just being a part of Rebels - which has my favorite TV portrayal of the force.
Top 5 Episodes: Twilight of the Apprentice, Shroud of Darkness, The Honorable Ones, The Seige of Lothal, Stealth Strike
9. Clone Wars - Season 2
Just a really steady season. While it doesn't have many of my top Clone Wars arcs... it doesn't really have many of my bottom ones either. The standout is the Duchess arc, introducing Satine/Mandalore and solid character development for Obi-Wan (voiced wonderfully by James Arnold Taylor). Well paced, but ultimately building towards the strong later seasons.
Top 3 Arcs: Duchess arc, Cad Bane arc, Geonosis arc
8. Rebels - Season 1
Rebels benefits throughout from it's linear, character-driven story. That's particularly true in it's shorter seasons. Season 1 builds a strong ensemble of characters and escalates the stakes throughout. More than anything though it makes being a padawan seem both appealing and dangerous - with emotional breakthroughs yielding results (both positive and negative).
Top 5 Episodes: Fire Across the Galaxy, Path of the Jedi, Call to Action, Rise of the Old Masters, Gathering Forces
7. Clone Wars - Season 6
Starting to get into the major set-up for the end of the war, the season 6 arcs highlight many areas where the Jedi are losing power and how they are unable to grasp the plot against them. Honestly, it's good stuff but I feel like it needed one more standout arc.
Top 3 Arcs: Obedience Chip arc, Yoda's Journey, Banking arc
6. Clone Wars - Season 4
Save for the end of season 7, the Umbara arc makes the best use of the wabattle side of Clone Wars to push its main characters. In this case, all of whom are clones attempting to decide to what extent they are willing to follow orders from a general who does not have their best interests at heart. Otherwise, the season isn't necessarily a standout, but Obi-Wan going undercover is a lot of fun.
Top 3 Arcs: Umbara arc, Obi-Wan's Deception arc, Kadavo arc
5. The Mandalorian - Season 1
A genuinely encouraging start to live-action television for Star Wars. I imagine this sort of thing is extremely difficult/expensive to make but they nailed the look and feel and got a killer and unique score from Ludwig van Goransson. Best of all, it's not just Mando walking around being a badass for 8 episodes (although there's plenty of that). There is also a lot of heart to it. Looking forward to more.
Top 5 Episodes: Redemption, The Sin, The Reckoning, The Prisoner, The Child
4. Rebels - Season 3
On an individual basis, season 3 of Rebels has several of my favorite episodes on this whole list. The crown jewels are "Trials of the Darksaber" and "Twin Suns", both of which I can only describe as beautiful. They also really let Kevin Kiner step into his own as a composer. A top 5 list doesn't really cut it in terms of how many of these episodes I really like. I only wish it felt like there was a little tighter throughline in terms of how they all connect.
Top 5 Episodes: Trials of the Darksaber, Twin Suns, Through Imperial Eyes, Zero Hour, Steps into Shadow
3. Clone Wars - Season 5
The Maul's Criminal Empire and Ahsoka Framed arcs are the best one-two punch in Clone Wars. The epic transitions of power in Mandalore followed by the institutional decay on Coruscant is exciting and thought-provoking But honestly, aside from the droid commander arc it's all rock-solid.
Top 3 Arcs: Ahsoka Framed arc, Maul's Empire arc, Younglings arc
2. Clone Wars - Season 7
As far as the animated seasons go, it's immediately obvious that this has the largest budget. The animation is gorgeous, capturing facial expressions and background details in a way the other seasons just can't. And the atmosphere is enhanced by a movie-quality soundtrack unique to each of the three arcs. The Bad Batch is a solid secondary arc, and I even enjoyed parts of the Martez sisters arc as a fun side adventure. Really though, it's up this high because of the Seige of Mandalore - the finest Star Wars animation to date.
Top 3 Arcs: The Seige of Mandalore, The Bad Batch, The Martez Sisters
1. Rebels - Season 4
As an actual season of tv though, Rebels Season 4 takes the cake. Once they tie up the loose end on Mandalore, it's a very tight story following Ezra's attempt to liberate his homeworld with limited support from the rebellion. Season 4 utilizes the strength of the cast it's built from the three previous seasons and effectively turns our familiarity with Lothal against us as the Empire has made a once light-hearted, fun place into a planet of fire and brutal oppression. There isn't one key episode so much as how they all fit into place together.
Top 5 Episodes: Jedi Night, Family Reunion and Farewell, A World Between Worlds, DUME, The Occupation

2020.06.23 01:00 idkwtd052 My LTAP (3 yrs) ended it, and I don't know what to do...

TL;DR = My (MM) LTAP (3 years) ended our physical and emotional relationship but still wants to remain good friends (and we still work together). I've never been this down and depressed, and I don't know what to do.
Okay, so I'll do my best to follow all the guidelines and acronyms but if I mess up I assure you it wasn't intentionally. I honestly have no one else to talk to about this. I read through a few posts and some like u/usuallykindasincere posted here have given me just the slightest feeling of hope, so I thought I'd share my story.
The Not TL;DR
I never, ever thought I would commit adultery. I'm sure a lot of people say that, but I really never did. I grew up in a very traditional, southern Baptist home and that was obviously one of the Big 10 and there's no fathomable way that would happen to or by me.
Early in life, I was a people pleaser. I'll spare you hours of couch time for a deeper understanding my entire psychological profile, but it was always easier just to make everyone happy (especially Dad) than it was to cause any waves. So I did. I got the best grades, played sports, didn't drink or do drugs, went to a nice college and met a nice girl, the works. The nice girl and I dated while she went to post graduate school and I was an active member of our military. The nice girl has always had a life plan that included a house, marriage, 2.5 kids, white picket fence, etc....so after I got out of active duty we got married because I liked making her happy. The nice girl became my SO and the rest, as they say is history....
After our first child was born, I was SO excited to be a dad and I still am so in love with our kids. What I guess I wasn't ready for was just how much it does take out of you....and how much it does change your relationship with your SO, your friends, and your family. Your single/marriedbutnokids friends keep living their lives and all of a sudden yours has been turned upside down. It's hard to describe just how utterly depressing it is being a parent for me sometimes. Few people can understand why you always don't just feel so "blessed" to have this beautiful family. I realized that my dreams were going to be put on hold for a long time...maybe forever. And I've always felt like now I'm stuck. I'm stuck in this town I don't want to live in. I'm stuck in this house that we couldn't really afford. I'm stuck going to all the holidays now with her family (because they live down the block and are our kids primary care providers while we work). And for better or worse, I'm stuck being a parent. And I'll probably be dead before I'm 65 if my dad's medical family history has anything to say for it.....thanks pops.
8 months after our first child was born, I began an inappropriate relationship with a co-worker. At the time, she was in the midst of a separation that was leading to a divorce. I was lonely, working late and drinking more....mainly to avoid having to go back home every day to clean bottles and change diapers. What began as offsite meetings to grab a beer and talk strategy about work (we were on the same team) evolved into a friendship that provided the emotional gap I felt wasn't filled at home. She actually listened to my dreams, asked me what songs I liked, encouraged me to try and do things outside of my comfort zone. We started texting each other after work, sending messages privately on Facebook....and based on the sub you're reading this one I'm sure you know where this is heading. One night during a work team outing after probably one too many pints, I drove her back to her car. Except, we didn't get out right away. Although we never had sex that night or any night there after, I had cracked the seal....and the RUSH of making out (heavily) with a person that also seemed to care about me was wildly intoxicating. For a few months, off and on we'd drink too much and make out again....but after a while she realized I wasn't going to end my marriage and be with her and we quit. No harm no foul. We remain friends today, but we never really talk about that time. She's had a couple of boyfriends off and on, and I eventually got to the point I wasn't jealous of the guys she was with. But it wasn't easy.
I tell myself never again. Fast forward 2 years.....our second child is born and home life gets even harder. The sense of being trapped is constant, and it takes all my will power just to not drive off into the sunset every day when I come home from work. Some days, I don't come home right away. I blame traffic or work, but I'm avoiding life and I know it. And then....a co-worker going through a rough spot in her marriage and I strike up a conversation after work. (sound familiar?) This time, it all escalates very quickly...both the emotional and the physical...and man, there's that RUSH again. We're meeting for lunches AND happy hours 2-3 days a week. We send (very) inappropriate messages and pictures on Snapchat (had to upgrade from FB messenger). She rents a hotel room one morning before a big work event, and we plan "The Rendevous".....and it's incredible. No sex (my rule, not hers) but it's everything you could do that isn't sex. My SO doesn't really care to give or receive oral sex, but my new AP could never get enough of either....and I was hooked on her. We'd sneak out during lunch to drive around the block for a quick BJ. I'd follow her to her car after work for a turn for me to go down on her in the backseat. Eventually she separated from her SO and got an apartment and boy, we were SO excited not to have to sneak around in cars any more! But after 11 months.....she'd had enough. I still remember the conversation, and the phrase "you need to s*** or get off the pot" to me was said. But she was right.....I understood. And I'd known this wouldn't last forever. But the fallout was MUCH harder for me than the first time. I couldn't tell any one, and one of my good male friends at the time a couple of weeks later told me about this awesome hook up he'd had with my former AP#2. Obviously, he didn't know what we'd been up to those previous months....but it devastated me. I removed (and still have removed) every possible digital connection to her. I lived in fear any time I'd go out for happy hour or to a restaurant that I'd bump into her and whoever her new person was (that wasn't me). I was very depressed...and I started drinking a LOT more to cover it up.
After a month of doing nothing but booze and sulk, I decide that I'm cleaning it all up. I start running to give myself something to do that isn't pouring alcohol down my throat. I quit drinking every day, and only drink 1-2 days a week....and even then not as many drinks as I used to. I lost a LOT of weight and people are complementing me and how great I look. I run a few races and love it! I register for and starting training for my first marathon. I get a new job, our company merges with a larger company, and things are actually turning around. I even start seeing a therapist to (finally) talk to someone about all of my transgressions. And things start getting better.
Until one day, my therapist tells me that I need to bring my SO in....that I can't make any more progress in my marriage or personally until we start working together on things. In a previous session, she asked I make a list of all the things I would hypothetically say to SO (I still have the list). And in the next session she intended for me to read it to her. I panic. I don't know what to do. I don't know if I'm trying to save myself from having to admit to my SO, the mother of our children, all these horrible things I'd done behind her back...for years. Or even if I do bring her in but hide the infidelity....nothing is going to change. My SO isn't leaving her home town, her parents, and she's not suddenly going to have this new empathy for my delayed dreams. She's told me before that I'm never happy with anything...which may be true. So why bother?
I quit therapy. I tell myself I can walk the good boy path alone and I do for a few months. But then a co-worker going through a rough time in her marriage and I strike up a conversation after work. (sound familiar?) I'll spare you all the dates, the moments, the sneaking around, the times I felt loved, the way her hand would touch my back when we would sit at the bar, the way her laugh makes me smile, the sneaking into each other's hotel rooms on work trips etc....but we were together for almost three years. She was married (unhappily) when we met. And we had (and still have) so much in common. We always joked that we were exactly the same person. I've never connected sexually (yes, all of it now...and we even did things we had NEVER done with anyone else....ever), emotionally, or anything else with any one more than I had with AP#3. She was there for me the day I lost my job (she got to keep hers) and I had to find somewhere else to work. She was there for me the day I had to sign for the new house (that I neither wanted nor could me+SO afford) and consoled me over beers. She was there for me when I got a NEW job, that was close enough to hers that we could still have a lunch or beer occasionally. I was there for her when she got a new job and saved up enough to finally get her own place to be officially separated. And we were BOTH excited when we finally got to start working at the same company together again. She was there for me when I told my SO that I didn't want any more kids....because AP#3 also has two kids and had the exact same conversation with her SO. She's been my best friend, my best lover, and everything else I could want. We each had had moments throughout our time together that one of us wanted to end it. Somehow, the other person always talked the other one out of it. But this time was different....she actually ended it.
In March, before the entire world changed....everything was just like it's been for the last three years. Then things slowly started changing. Our work closed their office, and we've all been digitally WFH for months. Work laid off some people and lowered all of our salaries down by 20%. Schools closed and AP#3 had to not only work but had to home school her two kids. We were talking less and less and sending fewer pics....there just weren't as many opportunities. And gone are our little walks, lunches, happy hours, and mid-day flings at her house. About two and a half months into our new remote working life, she tells work she's really stressed and needs a week off...and that she's completely unplugging for a week to get her life together. No messaging. I tell her I completely understand. But I feel like I already knew what was coming...it's happened before.
When she gets back from her week away, we essentially have the "it's over" chat over work Slack (we rarely actually text or message outside of Snapchat which we weren't using any more). A week or two later, we find a way to actually meet up to go over "work"....but we both know it's to have the conversation in person we already had. I've replayed that last conversation a hundred times in my head. We meet at one of our favorite bars, and after many drinks, hours and tears....it's done. She's finally signed her divorce papers, got a new car, and is moving on with her life...which includes ending our affair. She's tired of being the other woman, and she's tired of our relationship being a secret. Apparently she always thought, deep down, that I would leave my wife and be with her....and I never did. She still wants to remain good friends, and I nod along and say I do too. I tell her (and she tells me) that I hope that you'll be happy...I even go as far to say I hope you find someone that makes you happy. And she says "I think I may already have.."...and it devastates me. I was already replaced.
But if I really put myself in her shoes...I wonder why she stayed with me as long as she did. We often said we wanted to be together....but she was willing to make the changes in her life to make that a possibility and I didn't. And honestly I don't know if we ever would have been together anyways. She already got to see what kind of husband I was....
It's two weeks to the day now since our "it's over" convo, and I've never felt so overwhelmingly depressed. I've lost my best friend, my sexual equal, and maybe the person I could have spent the rest of my life with (and been happy). Gone are the little "good morning!" messages, gone are the little red Snapchat boxes that always made my heart skip a beat, gone is my escape from everything, and here I am....back to my reality. The hardest part is we still work together. I try not to look at her calendar to see if she has a two hour lunch blocked out (those used to be our "lunches"). I try not to zoom in on her face in every conference call that we have (we work on the same team). I try not to think about that house she takes calls from and how I knew my way around it. I try not to work Slack her to say how much I miss her. She keeps trying to make attempts at casual conversation ("how was your weekend")...but I just can't do it without mentally breaking down so I'm incredibly short and almost crass. She asked today if she should only message about work and not try to be friendly and I said yes.....even though that's the last thing I want. Everything else has already been disconnected....work with her is all that's left of what was our relationship.
I'm trying my best to put on my happy face at home (I have been for years now), but it's harder now more than ever. I made it through Father's Day (with guess who...the in-laws) thanks to 10-12 (or more) afternoon beers, but I don't know what I'm going to do. I'm drinking...a lot and have been during the entire spring (cocktail making is my "fun", new Covid hobby). I actually track my consumption on an excel sheet (originally I wanted to see how much alcohol impacted my running) and the numbers ain't looking good. I know I need to get my s*** together but I don't know how. I think this last relationship (and maybe the others too) was a way for me to avoid having to get my s*** together or avoid completely destroying my SO's life. I was able to live these two lives....the one I have, and I the one I wanted...for a long time without getting caught. (I think that's called cake eating on this sub but I'm not sure yet) But now it's gone.
I met with a therapist last week, but I've been down that road. He specializes in substance abuse and thinks I should consider a 30 day rehab, and honestly the affair was a drug just as much as alcohol has been a drug for me so maybe he's right. The withdrawal from her definitely feels like it. But I'm not convinced. At the end of the 30 days, I still have to go home.
I've kind of trying to find a new job, but honestly it's not the work I don't like. I have to see her. I like my boss and the company but I don't know how to show up knowing I have to interact with her again today. I hate to run away just because I can't figure out how to be her friend, but I don't feel like I really have another choice. I always worry the next team meeting is the one that I'll see her new person walk by in the background and it will shatter me all over again.
My kids are much older now then when all of this started. And they are so cool. It's been amazing for me and my SO to watch them grow up into these smart, young people. And I guess a big part of me wants to be along for the ride. Despite all my infidelity, I like to think I'm actually a pretty good dad. And me+SO make really good parents together. I also want to try and help them not make the same mistakes I did. It's okay if you're not perfect. It's okay if you strike out at the baseball game today. It's okay if you wreck my car. I still love you and want you have a life that YOU want....not one that your mom or your family or society or I want for you. But I can't shake the underlying feeling that I've cheated on them too.
I fantasize about them being out of the house. I think about that's probably the first time I'd be willing to tell SO that I don't want to be with her any more. We were great partners, great parents, but I know that I'll always feel trapped. I'm constantly doing the math in my head for how old I'll be when my youngest is old enough to leave....cuz that means I can too. Yea, I know s*** or get off the pot.
Sometimes, I actually wished I would have gotten caught. That at least that would have ended it. Then I wouldn't have to confess...it'd just be out there. I know SO has been suspicious of some past activity, but I guarantee she doesn't know to what extent or how long it's been. I know she knows I get really down and dark, and that I'm probably not happy. But it's easier to avoid it, pretend things are ok, take our Christmas card pic and power through. We've never had a healthy way of sharing our emotions that impact each other. And I know my sharing this would devastate her. She doesn't deserve that.
Other times, I think I'll just tough it out. My life isn't horrible. We have the picket fence and 2 (not 2.5) kids. It's my fault any of this happened anyways, I need to just deal with it. But it's a lot to deal with. I've hurt so many people....all for what? Because I was bored? Because I was lonely? Because I had a great life but didn't like it? Because I wanted better sex? Because the baby got more attention than me? Because a co-worker that probably just needed a friend shared their feelings with me and I took advantage of it? Did I actually love each of these women in my life, or was I just trying to give them something to be happy about in their tough time (read up on Transitional Objects...is that me?) There are so many things in my head, and I can't seem to turn any of it off. So I just ignore them and drink.
But I think the worst part is that I know if I try and tough it out....it's going to happen again. The roller coaster ride of emotions has gotten crazier and more dramatic each time, but I can't seem to not get on it. This has honestly been the most depressed I've been my entire life, and I don't know how I'm going to get out of it. But right now I'd do it again just to not feel this empty hole inside.
I just re-read this and OMG this is probably the longest post ever. It's obviously a throw away account, but I just wanted to tell someone even if no one ever reads it. If you made it this far, thank you. You listened. I needed that. And if you're going through the same thing as me, just know you're not alone. And if you have any advice, please don't hesitate to share it.
I'll probably never meet any of you, but I can't tell you how much it has helped me to share. Maybe that's a start.

The Sixteen Commandments Of Poon

May 19th, 2019 by CH
I. Never say ‘I Love You’ first
Women want to feel like they have to overcome obstacles to win a man’s heart. They crave the challenge of capturing the interest of a man who has other women competing for his attention, and eventually prevailing over his grudging reluctance to award his committed exclusivity. The man who gives his emotional world away too easily robs women of the satisfaction of earning his love. Though you may be in love with her, don’t say it before she has said it. Show compassionate restraint for her need to struggle toward yin fulfillment. Inspire her to take the leap for you, and she’ll return the favor a thousandfold.
II. Make her jealous
Flirt with other women in front of her. Do not dissuade other women from flirting with you. Women will never admit this but jealousy excites them. The thought of you turning on another woman will arouse her sexually. No girl wants a man that no other woman wants. The partner who harnesses the gale storm of jealousy controls the direction of the relationship.
III. You shall make your mission, not your woman, your priority
Forget all those romantic cliches of the leading man proclaiming his undying love for the woman who completes him. Despite whatever protestations to the contrary, women do not want to be “The One” or the center of a man’s existence. They in fact want to subordinate themselves to a worthy man’s life purpose, to help him achieve that purpose with their feminine support, and to follow the path he lays out. You must respect a woman’s integrity and not lie to her that she is “your everything”. She is not your everything, and if she is, she will soon not be anymore.
IV. Don’t play by her rules
If you allow a woman to make the rules she will resent you with a seething contempt even a rapist cannot inspire. The strongest woman and the most strident feminist wants to be led by, and to submit to, a more powerful man. Polarity is the core of a healthy loving relationship. She does not want the prerogative to walk all over you with her capricious demands and mercurial moods. Her emotions are a hurricane, her soul a saboteur. Think of yourself as a bulwark against her tempest. When she grasps for a pillar to steady herself against the whipping winds or yearns for an authority figure to foil her worst instincts, it is you who has to be there… strong, solid, unshakeable and immovable.
V. Adhere to the golden ratio
Give your woman 2/3 of everything she gives you. For every three calls or texts, give her two back. Three declarations of love earn two in return. Three gifts; two nights out. Give her two displays of affection and stop until she has answered with three more. When she speaks, you reply with fewer words. When she emotes, you emote less. The idea behind the golden ratio is twofold — it establishes your greater value by making her chase you, and it demonstrates that you have the self-restraint to avoid getting swept up in her personal dramas. Refraining from reciprocating everything she does for you in equal measure instills in her the proper attitude of belief in your higher status. In her deepest loins it is what she truly wants.
VI. Keep her guessing
True to their inscrutable natures, women ask questions they don’t really want direct answers to. Woe be the man who plays it straight — his fate is the suffering of the beta. Evade, tease, obfuscate. She thrives when she has to imagine what you’re thinking about her, and withers when she knows exactly how you feel. A woman may want financial and family security, but she does not want passion security. In the same manner, when she has displeased you, punish swiftly, but when she has done you right, reward slowly. Reward her good behavior intermittently and unpredictably and she will never tire of working hard to please you.
VII. Always keep two in the kitty
Never allow yourself to be a “kept man”. A man with options is a man without need. It builds confidence and encourages boldness with women if there is another woman, a safety net, to catch you in case you slip and risk a breakup, divorce, or a lost prospect, leading to loneliness and a grinding dry spell. A woman knows once she has slept with a man she has abdicated a measure of her power; when she has fallen in love with him she has surrendered nearly all of it. But love is ephemeral and with time she may rediscover her power and threaten to leave you. It is her final trump card. Withdrawing all her love and all her body in an instant will rend your soul if you are faced with contemplating the empty abyss alone. Knowing there is another you can turn to for affection will fortify your will and satisfy your manhood.
VIII. Say you’re sorry only when absolutely necessary
Do not say you’re sorry for every wrong thing you do. It is a posture of submission that no man should reflexively adopt, no matter how alpha he is. Apologizing increases the demand for more apologies. She will come to expect your contrition, like a cat expects its meal at a set time each day. And then your value will lower in her eyes. Instead, if you have done something wrong, you should acknowledge your guilt in a glancing way without resorting to the actual words “I’m sorry.” Pull the Bill Clinton maneuver and say “Mistakes were made” or tell her you “feel bad” about what you did. You are granted two freebie “I’m sorry”s for the life of your relationship; use them wisely.
IX. Connect with her emotions
Set yourself apart from other men and connect with a woman’s emotional landscape. Her mind is an alien world that requires deft navigation to reach your rendevous. Frolic in the surf of emotions rather than the arid desert of logic. Be playful. Employ all your senses. Describe in lush detail scenarios to set her heart afire. Give your feelings freedom to roam. ROAM. Yes, that is a good word. You’re not on a linear path with her. You are ROAMING all over, taking her on an adventure. In this world, there is no need to finish thoughts or draw conclusions. There is only need to EXPERIENCE. You’re grabbing her hand and running with her down an infinite, labyrinthine alleyway with no end, laughing and letting your fingers glide on the cobblestone walls along the way.
X. Ignore her beauty
The man who trains his mind to subdue the reward centers of his brain when reflecting upon a beautiful female face will magically transform his interactions with women. His apprehension and self-consciousness will melt away, paving the path for more honest and self-possessed interactions with the objects of his desire. This is one reason why the greatest lotharios drown in more love than they can handle — through positive experiences with so many beautiful women they lose their awe of beauty and, in turn, their powerlessness under its spell. It will help you acquire the right frame of mind to stop using the words hot, cute, gorgeous, or beautiful to describe girls who turn you on. Instead, say to yourself “she’s interesting” or “she might be worth getting to know”. Never compliment a girl on her looks, especially not a girl you aren’t fucking. Turn off that part of your brain that wants to put them on pedestals. Further advanced training to reach this state of unawed Zen transcendence is to sleep with many MANY attractive women (try to avoid sleeping with a lot of ugly women if you don’t want to regress). Soon, a Jedi lover you will be.
XI. Be irrationally self-confident
No matter what your station in life, stride through the world without apology or excuse. It does not matter if objectively you are not the best man a woman can get; what matters is that you think and act like you are. Women have a dog’s instinct for uncovering weakness in men; don’t make it easy for them. Self-confidence, warranted or not, triggers submissive emotional responses in women. Irrational self-confidence will get you more pussy than rational defeatism.
XII. Maximize your strengths, minimize your weaknesses
In the betterment of ourselves as men we attract women into our orbit. To accomplish this gravitational pull as painlessly and efficiently as possible, you must identify your natural talents and shortcomings and parcel your efforts accordingly. If you are a gifted jokester, don’t waste time and energy trying to raise your status in philosophical debate. If you write well but dance poorly, don’t kill yourself trying to expand your manly influence on the dancefloor. Your goal should be to attract women effortlessly, so play to your strengths no matter what they are; there is a groupie for every male endeavor. Except World of Warcraft.
XIII. Err on the side of too much boldness, rather than too little
Touching a woman inappropriately on the first date will get you further with her than not touching her at all. Don’t let a woman’s faux indignation at your boldness sway you; they secretly love it when a man aggressively pursues what he wants and makes his sexual intentions known. You don’t have to be an asshole, but if you have no choice, being an inconsiderate asshole beats being a polite beta, every time.
XIV. Fuck her good
Fuck her like it’s your last fuck. And hers. Fuck her so good, so hard, so wantonly, so profligately that she is left a quivering, sparking mass of shaking flesh and sex fluids. Drain her of everything, then drain her some more. Kiss her all over, make love to her all night, and hold her close in the morning. Own her body, own her gratitude, own her love. If you don’t know how, learn to give her squirting orgasms.
XV. Maintain your state control
You are an oak tree. You will not be manipulated by crying, yelling, lying, head games, sexual withdrawal, jealousy ploys, pity plays, shit tests, hot/cold/hot/cold, disappearing acts, or guilt trips. She will rain and thunder all around you and you will shelter her until her storm passes. She will not drag you into her chaos or uproot you. When you have mastery over yourself, you will have mastery over her.
XVI. Never be afraid to lose her
You must not fear. Fear is the love-killer. Fear is the ego-triumph that brings abject loneliness. You will face your fear. You will permit it to pass over and through you. And when your ego-fear is gone you will turn and face your lover, and only your heart will remain. You will walk away from her when she has violated your integrity, and you will let her walk when her heart is closed to you. She who can destroy you, controls you. Don’t give her that power over yourself. Love yourself before you love her.
***
The closer you follow the letter of these commandments, the easier you will find and keep real, true unconditional love and happiness in your life.

The idea behind the golden ratio is twofold — it establishes your greater value by making her chase you, and it demonstrates that you have the self-restraint to avoid getting swept up in her personal dramas. Refraining from reciprocating everything she does for you in equal measure instills in her the proper attitude of belief in your higher status. In her deepest loins it is what she truly wants.
VI. Keep her guessing
True to their inscrutable natures, women ask questions they don’t really want direct answers to. Woe be the man who plays it straight — his fate is the suffering of the beta. Evade, tease, obfuscate. She thrives when she has to imagine what you’re thinking about her, and withers when she knows exactly how you feel. A woman may want financial and family security, but she does not want passion security. In the same manner, when she has displeased you, punish swiftly, but when she has done you right, reward slowly. Reward her good behavior intermittently and unpredictably and she will never tire of working hard to please you.
VII. Always keep two in the kitty
Never allow yourself to be a “kept man”. A man with options is a man without need. It builds confidence and encourages boldness with women if there is another woman, a safety net, to catch you in case you slip and risk a breakup, divorce, or a lost prospect, leading to loneliness and a grinding dry spell. A woman knows once she has slept with a man she has abdicated a measure of her power; when she has fallen in love with him she has surrendered nearly all of it. But love is ephemeral and with time she may rediscover her power and threaten to leave you. It is her final trump card. Withdrawing all her love and all her body in an instant will rend your soul if you are faced with contemplating the empty abyss alone. Knowing there is another you can turn to for affection will fortify your will and satisfy your manhood.
VIII. Say you’re sorry only when absolutely necessary
Do not say you’re sorry for every wrong thing you do. It is a posture of submission that no man should reflexively adopt, no matter how alpha he is. Apologizing increases the demand for more apologies. She will come to expect your contrition, like a cat expects its meal at a set time each day. And then your value will lower in her eyes. Instead, if you have done something wrong, you should acknowledge your guilt in a glancing way without resorting to the actual words “I’m sorry.” Pull the Bill Clinton maneuver and say “Mistakes were made” or tell her you “feel bad” about what you did. You are granted two freebie “I’m sorry”s for the life of your relationship; use them wisely.
IX. Connect with her emotions
Set yourself apart from other men and connect with a woman’s emotional landscape. Her mind is an alien world that requires deft navigation to reach your rendevous. Frolic in the surf of emotions rather than the arid desert of logic. Be playful. Employ all your senses. Describe in lush detail scenarios to set her heart afire. Give your feelings freedom to roam. ROAM. Yes, that is a good word. You’re not on a linear path with her. You are ROAMING all over, taking her on an adventure. In this world, there is no need to finish thoughts or draw conclusions. There is only need to EXPERIENCE. You’re grabbing her hand and running with her down an infinite, labyrinthine alleyway with no end, laughing and letting your fingers glide on the cobblestone walls along the way.
X. Ignore her beauty
The man who trains his mind to subdue the reward centers of his brain when reflecting upon a beautiful female face will magically transform his interactions with women. His apprehension and self-consciousness will melt away, paving the path for more honest and self-possessed interactions with the objects of his desire. This is one reason why the greatest lotharios drown in more love than they can handle — through positive experiences with so many beautiful women they lose their awe of beauty and, in turn, their powerlessness under its spell. It will help you acquire the right frame of mind to stop using the words hot, cute, gorgeous, or beautiful to describe girls who turn you on. Instead, say to yourself “she’s interesting” or “she might be worth getting to know”. Never compliment a girl on her looks, especially not a girl you aren’t fucking. Turn off that part of your brain that wants to put them on pedestals. Further advanced training to reach this state of unawed Zen transcendence is to sleep with many MANY attractive women (try to avoid sleeping with a lot of ugly women if you don’t want to regress). Soon, a Jedi lover you will be.
XI. Be irrationally self-confident
No matter what your station in life, stride through the world without apology or excuse. It does not matter if objectively you are not the best man a woman can get; what matters is that you think and act like you are. Women have a dog’s instinct for uncovering weakness in men; don’t make it easy for them. Self-confidence, warranted or not, triggers submissive emotional responses in women. Irrational self-confidence will get you more pussy than rational defeatism.
XII. Maximize your strengths, minimize your weaknesses
In the betterment of ourselves as men we attract women into our orbit. To accomplish this gravitational pull as painlessly and efficiently as possible, you must identify your natural talents and shortcomings and parcel your efforts accordingly. If you are a gifted jokester, don’t waste time and energy trying to raise your status in philosophical debate. If you write well but dance poorly, don’t kill yourself trying to expand your manly influence on the dancefloor. Your goal should be to attract women effortlessly, so play to your strengths no matter what they are; there is a groupie for every male endeavor. Except World of Warcraft.
XIII. Err on the side of too much boldness, rather than too little
Touching a woman inappropriately on the first date will get you further with her than not touching her at all. Don’t let a woman’s faux indignation at your boldness sway you; they secretly love it when a man aggressively pursues what he wants and makes his sexual intentions known. You don’t have to be an asshole, but if you have no choice, being an inconsiderate asshole beats being a polite beta, every time.
XIV. Fuck her good
Fuck her like it’s your last fuck. And hers. Fuck her so good, so hard, so wantonly, so profligately that she is left a quivering, sparking mass of shaking flesh and sex fluids. Drain her of everything, then drain her some more. Kiss her all over, make love to her all night, and hold her close in the morning. Own her body, own her gratitude, own her love. If you don’t know how, learn to give her squirting orgasms.
XV. Maintain your state control
You are an oak tree. You will not be manipulated by crying, yelling, lying, head games, sexual withdrawal, jealousy ploys, pity plays, shit tests, hot/cold/hot/cold, disappearing acts, or guilt trips. She will rain and thunder all around you and you will shelter her until her storm passes. She will not drag you into her chaos or uproot you. When you have mastery over yourself, you will have mastery over her.
XVI. Never be afraid to lose her
You must not fear. Fear is the love-killer. Fear is the ego-triumph that brings abject loneliness. You will face your fear. You will permit it to pass over and through you. And when your ego-fear is gone you will turn and face your lover, and only your heart will remain. You will walk away from her when she has violated your integrity, and you will let her walk when her heart is closed to you. She who can destroy you, controls you. Don’t give her that power over yourself. Love yourself before you love her.

2019.12.04 08:01 Therandomanswerer Final FRV Documentary thing(yay) and random short story

lol sup so don't worry I realized that m previous decisions are shit but I can't post here lmao
don't worry the U.R is dead so you don't have to deal with that boring stuff anymore. Update: Turns out there's a limit so you don't see the disclaimer now. I will be forced to move the short story, by itk be linked and not here, to prevent #SPAM.
Maybe I should stop posting entire books..
nah
Spam is a disgusting food. Probably. Idk.
It is around twenty five thousand years INTO the life of the U.R when this new drive is discovered, capable of accessing a million systems. In the span of about a century, a massive war breaks out, bringing down both the U.R and the accord. As a result, the galaxy is split into hundreds of tiny factions covering a few systems.
The United Republic was mainly populated by Acrinians, although we used to be known as Foxians. Eons ago our ancestors left their home galaxy.
After three hundred years they left the next.
In the long voyage, we accidentally entered the slightly wrong coordinates.
It resulted in us entering a wormhole.
Later, we were dropped out above a small ocean world, around a dying red giant
This will start in the year 2436, up until 2740
Eventually, after thousands of years of conflict, a new FYL system was invented.
During the second and final Republic-National war, the armada suffered no losses, and being constructed with living metal infused in the hulls of the vessels, the two severely damaged Vasa class cruisers had repaired themselves.
The sole Lexington class carrier that was there, had, for its time, extremely advanced shielding, which would rival that of the battleships of 2600.
The amount of minerals churned out every month as well, was spectacular.
The Republics main problem was its economy. To counter this, the Republic drew from its massive stockpiles to construct a new series of habitats. These were dubbed the Potomacs, in honor of the Potomac, the construction vessel that assembled the first one.
Currently, there were three Potomacs, all producing massive amounts of power. A fourth was planned.
These all lied in the Eskellion system, the home of Eskellion Prime, which produced the majority of the energy the United Republic consumed.
A few decades before this, a sole U.R science vessel, charting systems, found something astonishing.
Jumping into a black hole system, they found planets.
But that was not what was of interest.
Far southeast of it, a massive structure, stood ruined.
Upon closer inspection, they found that the station had once been a massive structure devoted to the advancement of the sciences, from a long fallen empire.
A construction ship was dispatched at once, to build a defense system around the station, incase anyone, or anything, attacked it.
The logic behind it was, that if it was possible to build such a massive structure, it would also be possible to repair it, replicate it, and mass produce it.
The Republic, sensing that they would be able to repair the “Science Nexus” as they called it, quickly constructed five new colony vessels. As the mines of Rym were improved, two vessels, bound for a large tropical planet to the south, and another to the north, left the shipyards.
The northernmost planet was first. This one would become a new planet devoted to research.
Second was the southern planet, which would become another mineral planet.
The three others would dock with the Potomacs.
The Potomac series of habitat was a heavily moddable, massive orbital station. The first three were specifically designed to pull the Republic out of the economic hole it dug for itself.
Even then, plans were made, once the crisis was solved, the nation to the west crushed, and the war over, for a new subclass of Potomacs.
These would be the Potomac M class stations.
They were built off the same skeleton, but instead of producing power, they would be fitted with a massive central reactor, and huge mining lasers. Just one was manned by twelve billion people.
This was no worry to the Republic.
The 2300s was a age of expansion in every aspect.
The amount of food produced was much larger than needed, and if they were ever to run out, they could just build a Potomac-F, one designed to produce huge amounts of food.
Most new planets would likely be devoted to mining.
After the war, stellar super casinos became popular.
Despite gambling being illegal, it formed a sense of unification in the UR.
Seeing the.. Somewhat positive effects of gambling on massive scales, gambling was turned legal.
In the battle for the enemies capital system, the sole Lexington present, the FVR September,
jumped early. The shields were overloaded, and her reactor was severely damaged.
The captain ordered a jump ASAP.
After that, until 2346, no one had a clue where it ended up.
There are rumors that she entered a higher dimension of hyperspace to make such a long jump so fast.
Her wreck was found in previously uncharted space, on a small desert planet, a decade later.
Two more decades later and the rights to the wreck flipped holdings, into a family that would, in the 2900s, have a monopoly over the financial portion of the universe.
Before the second National-Republic war even began, plans were being made to turn the five planets obtained into massive mining planets, fueling the bulk of the empire.
Alongside massive updates to the mines of Rym, the engineering department was looking into enhancing the mineral scanners, thus improving total output overall.
The navy, was slowly choking the economy of the Republic.
Expansion was needed, and required for survival.
As a result, the planet Bazkarat, was designated by officials the next planet for colonization.
Until 2600 the Republic did not really expand, just colonizing planets to strengthen the economy.
Around 2520 The beacon collapsed into a black hole.
It was the year 2606 that resulted in a explosion of pure hatred across the Republic.
Millions of high level officials around the galaxy simultaneously received a single report:
The FRV Sojourner, was under attack.
FRV Sojourner was a small science vessel, about a hundred and fifty years old. Alongside the FRV Walter Raleigh, they had paved the course for expansion, becoming signs of peace and power, despite their civilians purpose.
The officials, watched, in relief, as the Sojourner jumped out of there. But this relief was misfound.
The massive relay station in Impan reported a simple message, one that would send shockwaves throughout the republic.
FRV Sojourner, destroyed.
The might of the entire navy was mobilized. Even Crusade squadron was involved. All space Amoebas would be ruthlessly hunted until they were extinct.
This campaign lasted two years.
As it concluded, the battlecruiser FRV Sojourner II was constructed, in honor of those that died in the Sojourners destruction.
It was but a mere few years lated the primitves on Mondaks Retreat, a planet in the same system as Rym, discovered nuclear power.
A prompt response was needed, and sent out.
All nuclear weapons were seized, for their own good, by the Republic.
They were dismantled and repurposed in Croken station.
then taught the secrets of the hyperdrive, gifted a planet, and left alone.
But suddenly they hated us. For no reason. We helped them along, and here they are, insulting us! They called our society,"Flawed and inefficient"
Here we are churning out stations the size of planets, receiving more resources in a month then they could store, with them barely even able to fund a formatiom of Corvettes, and they called US flawed! Pathetic.
In they year 2636 a declaration of war was made. We would seize Mondaks retreat.
One of the most unique engagements in the history of war occuredn. N.
Two massive orbital stations, dueled it out. There was no starships or armies, just two spaceports bqw forrawling.
In the end, our spaceport won, after a week of sucking up salvo after salvo. Simultaneously, our fleet moved on both Mondaks and the planet we gifted them.
As it was bombarded, the gifted planet rebelled. Bombardment concluded at once.
The fleet headed to Mondaks Retreat.
The first Republic-Confederacy conflict concluded in a victory.
We made a offer to preserve their empire.
They took it immediately.
The next ten years started the widespread construction of a line of massive orbital stations, of which most are destroyed, devoted completely to the advancement of the sciences. The rebellion was crushed, and the planet returned into the hands of the Confederacy.
It appears, that the Republic did not want the Confederacy to fall. It seems what they wanted, was for the Confederacy to take Bhudghobbd, in Beta Caeli, one of the far flung, useless colonies, in exchange for total control of Rym and Mondak. Afterall, before seizing the nuclear missiles, which are beleived to have been repurposed for new missileboats, they were seen more as a pet, than anything.
The Republic saw them as a toy. They hated us, we hated them. If they felt they grew to strong, the Republic would declare war, maybe take a few planets, and destroy the enemy fleet.
Meanwhile, a third ringworld was under construction, the one of Halbargaara. Apparently, it would be a massive shipyard. The actualy existence of the Halbargaara ring, however, has never been confirmed. Ever since the massive war that marked the end of the Republic and Rym Confederacy, the location has been lost. There are rumors that the ancient battleship Ghost still roams the galaxy, with old charts showing the state of the Republic at its height.
The Ghost, was, at one point, in 2436, a Lexington class fleet carrier, named FRV September. This specific vessel saw action in the second National-Republic conflict of the twenty four thirties.
When returning to Delta after the conflict concluded, the drive malfunctioned, sending the entire ship into a “Higher Dimension” of hyperspace, beleived to be the one we use in modern times. She traveled across the galaxy, crashing into a desert planet.
In the 2900s the vessel was salvaged, and would see battle as a super laser equipped pirate ship.
The ancient Halbargaa ring, built a hundred years after the first Sterope ring, apparently encompassed a Type G star. (Yellow dwarf) A likely candidate for Halbargaa is located in the sector (X324), (Y639), a Type G with a massive ring of debris, and no planets or asteroids.
Of course, the Sterope and Izta rings are both still used today, even tens of thousands of years after their construction. The massive sensor relay used by the Republic from the 2550s until its demise, was completely destroyed after a dreadnought rammed it at lightspeed in the end of the Republics life.
During the 2660s, another rebellion arose on Bhudghobbd. It was this time, left alone.
Around this time a order of 25 Snappers was thrown out there.
The Snappers design are as follows:
2x Medium Gamma Lasers
3x Large Gauss Cannons
1xTachyon Lance
4x Hyper Sheild Projectors.
The Snapper class was constructed of a mixture of crystal plating and living metal, creating a super heavy metal that both repaired itself and could suck up very heavy punishment. Some of these mass produced dreadnoughts are still present today, with the UNSFF fielding about a dozen for anti pirates.
Each one took 222 days to be churned out. They single handedly could siege a spaceport of their time and come out on top, while the Gamma lasers were good enough deterents to fend off smaller vessels.
The lance was able to wipe out most small vessels in a single blast, completely bypassing sheilding and nearly all armor.
In the year 2670 the Confederacy fell, with Mondak being left with really no purpose, no plans in place, and just left alone. It was mainly used as a pit stop for civilian starships.
In 2672 it was determined that the rebellion that had arisen in Beta Caeli, the one that was left alone, was not to be trusted. The Republic left them alone, keeping a weary eye on them. They were small, but as soon as they got a fleet that could take down a spaceport, they would be a threat.
However, fortunately, their development was capped off. With closed borders, they were limited to the northwestern portion of the accessible galaxy. Alongside this, the quality of the defense stations ordered around starports, and all over the capital system, formed a interlinking network of withering fire, each one being able to take on five Snappers at once, or about eleven early battleships. And with the massive technological leaps the U.R
By this time the first section of the Halbargaa ring world had supposedly come online, and the U.R produced enough minerals in a month to order a Vasa and Snapper class each month, which would, hopefully by the 2730s, be up to two Snappers orderable a month, as the Republic expanded slowly. Nearly two trillion people lived in the Republic by this time. (I count 1 pop as a billion.)
With the presence of a new foe, that had plenty of space to expand, the Sentry array was quickly guarded by a network of interlocking firing zones, to create a absolute deathtrap for any vessel caught in it.
Although with the combination of shipyards, average ship speed, and just age, it would be thought that it would now be defenseless, but that is not the case. The same can be said most likely for the rumored array to the south eastern portion of the galaxy, ancient holopads saying that a ruined array was found a few decades after the first was completed.
Seeing as they already had one, no resources were channeled into restoring it, though it was claimed and fortified in the case another empire ever came onto the galactic stage, they could not take it, atleast not without a fight.
Eventually, a abandoned vessel, seemingly a large yacht, was found in a asteroid belt.
It seems that atleast two of these vessels had been constructed, as one vessel with the exact same design was already in service, from a similar fate. This vessel found now, with the exact same “Super Engines” was disassembled, used for building a unique skyscraper on Delta. The engines were studied, and the knowledge from it was used in improving the Impulse engine design.
The speed of the Republic warships was unmatched.
At this time the Halbargaa ring was, according to records, starting to come online. Though yet to be colonized, there was already a portion completed, and another was being constructed. As well as this, a colony vessel had already landed on a large planet. In the coming decades, this specific system would be one of the most important systems in the Republic, churning out a massive amount of minerals.
But this output came at the price of vulnerability. Though surrounding systems were turned into fortress systems, this area was still but a few jumps from the Gubec Galactic Assembly, the former rebellion in the Beta Caeli system.
Though it would be very long before they could mount a offensive with the capability of taking a system, it was dangerous none the less.
A few years after touchdown on the planet, a new fleet was churned out.
Designated the first strike group, it contained the following:
3 supercarriers, the first off the lines.
5 Vasa class torpedo cruisers.
9 Defender class picket destroyers.
These carriers were extroadinarily fast, able to cross a system at unheard of speed.
This specific group would see intense action in the coming decades, in numerous wars against the Assembly.
The carriers were fast, definitely, but this came with the sacrifice of lacking hull durability.
The fleet was completely done by 2700, the flagship being the battlecruiser Sojourner II.
Their first assignment was to destroy some enemy vessels blocking the assemblies expansion, although soon after they departed the assembly insulted the republic, and the vessels were called back.
In the year 2690, a plan project was made.
The Sterope ring was the first ringworld the republic constructed, and it was completely devoted to technological advancment in all fields.
This plan was to build a third Dyson Sphere, then three more ringworlds.
One would be completely devoted to physics, the second to engineering, and the third to bio.
While the Republic enhanced everything, with super heavy sheilding and vessels, two colony ships touched down on Beta Caeli IV, and a planet on a nearby systems planet, both owned by the Assembly.
The Republic watched warily as they obtained destroyer sized vessels. Meanwhile, the Vasa's were enhanced, and one of them could now take on a old battleship and cruiser. In 2704 a battlecruiser was patrolling near Assembly space, when the array detected a small, unmanned vessel approaching. The array attempted to alert the FRV warships, but to no avail. The battlecruiser exploded and split in half, burnig up in the atmosphere of Sym. The ship that had approached was determined to be a assembly bomb ship. All twenty thousand aboard were killed.
Called a "Blatant act of terrorism" by the first speaker, a pair of Agincourt battleships was dispatched, steamrolling though the assembly as a warning. The capital city of Bhudghobb was leveled completely, along with a billion civilians.
Reeling In shock, they left each other alone.
Those who were related to the people killed aboard the battlecruiser simply had to live with the loss. Meanwhile the new Sphere was nearing completion.
It was the year 2729 when the Second Carrier Sqaudron was assembled, mirroring the first, with three super carriers, two battlecruisers, eight Vasas, and twenty destroyers of varying types.
By 2730 the sphere was finally completed, as well as the superheavy mining station of Rym II.
Across the Republic, massive new generator stations based off of the old Potomacs were constructed, and miniscule enhancements in the plants resulted in a massive amount of power gained overall.
Every two months the Republics massive mines put out enough minerals to build a unequipped massive Potomac sized station, and a corvette.
Construction on the first Ringworld, the frame having long earlier been constructed, finally commenced. This first one would be devoted completely to physics, a field that lagged behind compared to engineering and society.
As well as this, the large station "Defender." Was constructed, in the Fortress system dividing the Republic and the Bebaki. The nearest Beabakan star system being a single jump away, the friction even furtherly negatively impacted the two nation's relationship.
Despite the first wars lessons, the Assembly sent a hijacked cruiser and sent it into the atmosphere of Delta, wiping out a major population center, and killing billions, leading to the second Assembly war.
As the Galaxy heated up from the assemblies terrorism, the first new ring world was being built. As well as this, a series of late stations, the size of moons, although smaller then a Nexus, were being constructed, devoted entirely to research.
The second assembly war lasted half a year. Its main event was the great Terebellium chase.
The First Carrier Sqaudron was already stationed at Revannic, a few jumps from Assembly space. When the war broke out, they were ordered to destroy the remote starbases on the border, and then chase down and destroy the enemy fleet.
The Sqaudron had little problem with the starbases, and was followed by the main army of the Republic. The Accords fleet, a large formation of primitive destroyers and corvettes, completely bypassed the Sqaudron, and attacked the armies, a system behind.
The carriers quickly turned back. It was stressful, but eventually they made it, and though some vessels were heavily damaged, no ships were destroyed. In the battle between the Sqaudron and the Accord, the Kestrel class corvette FRV Zhengsheng was destroyed, and her sister was heavily damaged. A monument to the 578 men on Zhengsheng would be constructed in the 2770s, some of the first Republic casualties in the following wars.
Researchers were held with very high regard in the republic, the few who could lead science vessels or the different divisions, were practically gods in the public's eyes.
The capital city of Delta was dominated with the tips of the Xeno Biology museum, and capital complex super scrapers towers. On the outskirts was a massive research institute, with a massive sentient supercomputer, and logs of all technological advancements. This alone greatly enhanced the speed of research. Of course by now the Republic was in a constant diplomatic fire fight, insults flying over diplomatic lines.
During the construction of one of the rings, the Bebakans requested to send engineers to observe.
Such was promptly denied, for fear of yet another terrorist attack.
It was then that the Republic concluded terraforming efforts on a large tomb world, it had been a success. Radiation was back to the normal background levels for the type of star it orbited, and the planet was now covered with large, deep oceans.
In the 2750s war was once again declared, after the illegal seizing of the large civilian liner RV Velvet Abyss. (FRV stands for Federal Republic Vessel, while RV just Republic Vessel.)
The Velvet Abyss was relatively new, built in 2743. She measured stem to stern, 20 kilometers long, and a tenth that In height.
The seizing of the Velvet Abyss occurred when the vessel came " To close" to Accord space. As a result the vessel was boarded and a small but intense firefight broke out. During so the ship attempted to leave, but was hit by a volley of missiles near the reactor, and the ship, twice the size of a Republic battleship, exploded in a blaze of glory taking six hundred thousand lives. There were no survivors on either vessel. The power of the blast wiped out all station in the system.
All out war was declared. The First and second sqaudrons were in their space before they even knew it. Though it would be to power taxing to activate a hundred and fifty one sensor cloaking devices for the armies, they followed a few jumps behind.
The First Carrier sqaudron, the flag held on Sojourner II, spearheaded the assault, going straight for the heart of their empire, and assaulted the spaceport as well as a pair of small warships above their capital. The Relays reported that the enemies fleet, was now chasing down the faster transports, through the Terebellium system.
The transports were theoretically defenseless, but they were fast. With Impulse thrusters, enhanced from the technology duggen up from the old abandoned star yacht mentioned earlier. It was not hard for them to outrun the fleet. The problem was they could not get over to the next system before being caught. So as a result, they just played a long cat and mouse game that ended next to the hyperlane from Sym.
The turns started to let them catch up with the armies when a gaping rip between dimensions opened up.
Out of it came the Second Carrier Sqaudron. This was its baptism of combat, and it deeply confused the Accord Commanders. What they failed to realize was that the First Carrier Sqaudron, was not, infact, not, the main battlefleet of the Republic. The main battlefleet was actually a hundred times larger then both these fleets combined.
Each carrier sqaudron was composed of three super carriers, two battlecruisers, eight Vasas, twenty various destroyers, and two Kestrels.
It was a single pronged strike that had ended up kebabing the forces of the Accord in mere weeks. As the Accords fleet was crushed like bugs under the Second Sqaudron, the first was a jump away dealing with the spaceport above Bhudghobbd, and getting ready for orbital bombardment.
The two carrier sqaudrons had simultaneously destroyed their only mobile defense against the untouched landing force, and most of their ability to deploy warships.
The two sqaudrons then rendevoused for bombardment, to help along the invasion forces.
But they surrendered
The first section of the Rimmock Ringworld had been completed, the first labs were already under construction. Much to the northwest, nearer the border but yet far behind it, the first portion of the engineering ring was under construction.
This portion was finished and col onized by the 2780s.
By 2790 a new fleet had left the lines, its flagship a new escort carrier type, two Vasas, and a dozen corvettes. This fleet would conduct patrols on the outer reaches of the Republic. The system Rimmock was essential to the Republics security, even without the ring world. If a enemy fleet were to ever push even to the system north of it-
Rimmock would be the final fortress system before they could wreak havoc on the capital. And, it would cut the Republic completely in half if the system was to fall.
Fortunately, this was only a threat in the imminent future if there was ever a mutiny in the battle fleet.
Now it is here I should detail the average Republic capital ship.
By the year 2770 the Republic had about 125 capital ships.
Realistically, this is a very small number considering the massive economy of the Republic. They could, if they wanted to, produced about seventy Orion class battleships a year.
Of course, the Orion did not exist back then.
One U.R battleship could quickly destroy a spaceport, as long as it was not one of their own. They were flying command vessels, a feat of engineering. They only got more advanced as time went on.
The average U.R capital ship had four large Hyper Shield projectors, was made of Crystalline plates, and had a sentient, yes, sentient, super computer directing the fire of the weapons.
The U.R battleship of the 2770s could face a trio of the ancient “Reliant” class fleet carriers.
Though the Reliants had Hypershields as well, their usefulness was limited, for:
They did not have Zero-Point reactors.
The sheilding was not as advanced as the U.R shielding.
The lack of advanced reactors limited how many subsystems could be placed on the ship at once.
This was countered by the fact that the Reliants bombers could completely bypass the shielding, however most U.R capital ships had massive shield buster guns.
One single battlestation could take on 16 of these vessels. That is about half of the total amount of Reliants ever produced.
Two of the battlestations could take on the entire Deltan Republics navy, as of when they departed their second home, although it is likely one would go down.
The Jurii Covenant would be steamrolled, as they could not take to many fortress systems before falling, and would likely be caught by the Republics main battlefleet, which was six times larger then the Covenants fleet as of 2780, while the two carrier fleets could simultaneously conduct invasions.
In 2750 twenty “Snapper” class battleships were ordered from Danube, a portion of the old Sterope ringworld.
The Snapper class, when first designed in the 2360s, was to be the main ship of the line, although this title ended up falling to the older Agincourt class battleships.
The Snapper was expensive and powerful. It had a massive Tachyon Lance, firing particles at FTL speeds, completely bypassing shielding and delivering devastating blows that could wipe out most small ships, and do heavy damage to everything else. Production on the ships stopped completely in the 2450s, and the Snappers, though kept up to date and maintained well, were relics.
This is not to say that they were obsolete. They were far from it. It was actually superior to many of the capital ships in the fleet.
These snappers were the first ones built in three centuries.
In 2765 a new battleship was designed and put into service.
This battleship followed a single strategy.
Heavily armored, single deflector, shield buster ship.
It had a massive gun on the bow, and was loaded with artillery.
It only had a single shield projector, although it had the efficiency of two and a half of the older hypershield projectors.
Originally, the designer wanted to fit it with old chemical engines to lessen the reactor load, but this was thrown out the window, as such a slow vessel would prove more of a nuisance in war time then a actual fighting force, drastically slowing down the fleet, when speed could be a matter of life or death for the far flung colonies.
Originally, few were built, until the introduction of the First Battlefleet, twice the size of the First Carrier sqaudron, (Henceforth the FCS)
in the early 2770s.
In 2780 it was required that at all times, if all Federal ships were to mobilize at once, the Republic should still posess the ability to receive 300 extra energy credits simultaneously, as the Armada was useless, for total mobilization of it would slaughter the Republics economy in mere months.
To prevent this, a new Dyson Sphere was ordered, near Croken Station.
Croken Station was a Potomac R, a Potomac devoted to research only. It housed and cared for twelve billion researchers and their families. It orbited a massive black hole, and was top secret
Two decades later, as the new Dyson Sphere was startin to come
After the conclusion of the Samnivik Fleet Crisis, the galaxy was quiet. Life went on, the Republic continued construction of new research stations.
Finally, after decades of the projects dormancy, construction started on the ringworld that would house the biological labs, although only after the Perqim dyson sphere was constructed.
The massive industrial capacity also endlessly expanded.
In 2825, the main armada reached 700k on the FP scale, while the Confederacy lagged behind at about 7.8k.
In total the navy was at about 820k.
If wanted, the U.R could put out two new capital ships every month.
It was then the U.R looked into a secret base of operations. A secret battlefleet in a secret system, with a spaceport capable of massproducing massive ships.
The systems nearby Jurg Hulaghh, a old planet taken from primitives in a invasion and still far from the Republics main systems, were chosen.
However, this would never come to light.
In 2838 a defence fleet of five new “Galleon” class ships, large, heavily armored vessels with plasma cannons, was constructed for Trophy.
After this, war was declared, where they would make their debut.
They peformed even better then expected, and in a fight against the confederacy navy, wiped out their entire fleet, of which the five enemy battleships had spinal mounted weaponry, which the galleons lacked, on the fringes of Samnivik.
The cry for all galleons to open fire would be stolen by thousands of admirals following.
The five “Grand Galleons” as they were called, would be the main diplomatic escort for the higher ups. Eventually they would get the single “Battle Galleon” a Horizantus class equipped with cannons.
They also softened up the ground defenses of Monument after said space battle, in which the entirety of the Confederacy fleet was destroyed by said galleons. (Not one galleon was lost.)
Very little survivors from the Confederacy fleet were picked up, as most of the crew members were killed in the vacuum when the cannons ate through the hull.
The galleons would be one of the rarer capital ships, although still very powerful. Additionaly, The Armada received five.
In the 2840s it was found that the economy could now support the Armada away from its home of Danube, a portion of the Sterope ring world.
By this point the Armada was at about 760k on the FP scale.
The FBF was lucky enough to receive one of the said galleons, which would become the flagship.
The Galleons played a critical role in the fleets.
They had both heavy armor, and heavy shielding. (Very few of the ships in the Republic had armor.) Additionaly, they used weapons that easily bypassed armor, while the main fleet focused on anti shielding weaponry.
Armor covered 86% of the ship on the first Galleons, later being upped to 90%
They served as the command ships of the fleet, before the Dreadnoughts were introduced.
(One dreadnought had armor, heavy shielding, three gamma lasers, and three gauss cannons, as well as a mixture of a hull that had a mixture of living metal, crystalline plates, and the regenerative hull tissue of the space ameoba, creating the ultimate ship.)
The galleons were cheaper then most of the main capital ships, but never entered true mass production, and compared to most other ships like the Vasa class torpedo cruisers, the Agincourt and snapper class battleships, few were ever built.
The five “Grand Galleons” spent most of their time, when not peforming a task, as a early buffer between the Confederacy and the Republic.
You see, the Confederacy could not be in a worse place.
The main battlefleet was slow and far behind the capital.
The Confederacys main link to the Republic was but a few jumps from Rimmock, the engineering ringworld and the main highway between the Republic and the outer galaxy.
This was because this region of the galaxy, though near completely uninhabited, except for Rovannic, which even then is a stretch, was the quickest link between the core of the U.R and Uva Xavani.
Uva Xavani consisted of thirteen planets, and consisted of all systems once under control of the old National empire, destroyed in the National Republic wars of the late 2300s.
To go to the southern link, you would have most of the megastructures, as this area had a greater concentration of empty systems, completely useless.
If such a empire ever reach Rimmock, the western portion of the galaxy would be cut off near completely, and it would take months longer to reach Uva Xavani.
The only immediately available buffer was a small formation of ancient cruisers, with little shielding and armor, a slow hyperdrive, and a horrible design.
These ships had all been pulled from the gas wells of various gas giants.
It was suddenly when a massive coordinated terrorist attack destroyed the hyper comm forms around the Republic.
Surprisingly, they were not replaced.
About two decades after this event, as a new Dyson Spheres frame was being built, came the Asterion Incursion.
It resulted in the planet of Markaz III to be near completely pulverized, and it was only two years after the start of bombardment, six billion were dead.
In the year 2900 a new dyson sphere was finished. In 2904 , after nearly three centuries of the plan existing, the bio-research ring finally was colonized.
Two years before, in 2902, a new battlecruiser, the “Holy Fire” class,(Ironic, as gods were beleived in by a fraction of the population), FRV Fall Of Pompeii, became the new flagship of the fleet.
In 2915 a new dyson sphere was ordered.
Now, as we all know, today we use credits as currency. This is a development of the “ECU.” The United Republic used a scale of a qaudrillion ECU=1 Energy Credit, with a maximum surplus of about twenty thousand. By this time, if the fleet had not been mobilized, they could produce about 950 Energy Credits a month. The purpose of the newest Dyson sphere was to push economic security. We can see this, as in the 2940s, after said spheres completion, work was commenced on a new ring world, which would become a massive reactor. Although significant measures were taken, in the fortyfour sixties, the ring world would be hit by a massive swarm of advanced Bebaki missiles, quickly taking down the shielding and causing a chain reaction that pulverized the ring, along with a hundred billion souls.
In 2917 a suprise attack by the Armada on Budhghobbd was caried out.
In this war, the battlecruisers FRV Leeroy and FRV Jenkins, jumped ahead of the Armada into Bebaki space, and when the fleet arrived to save them from the onslaught, it quickly evolved into a chaotic fleet battle, with freindly fire claiming seven cruisers, three capital ships, and fourteen destroyers. Additionaly, Bebaki fire claimed the lives of the two cruisers.
FRV Jenkins was also severely damaged in a collision with a freindly armored cruiser of the Tramp class.
The Tramp was relatively old, with multiple missile systems and gauss cannons. It was heavily armored, slow, and lightly shielded, designed to absorb blows and overload point defense systems. It was the workhorse of the FRV until neutron torpedoes were introduced, with the Vasa class. After the introduction of the heavily shielded Vasa, the Tramps were kept in service but production halted on all. The occasional order for one might be sent to a backwater world every few years, but other than that they fell out of the spotlight
This specific Tramp was only mildly damaged, as the collision impacted one of five neutronium armor belts, although multiple plates buckled. Unfortunately, when The Jenkins attempted to go over the ship, the mangled remains of the #2 laser battery, mangled beyond repair, impacted the bridge, causing it to be exposed to the void, the command crew dying of asphyxiation.
The captains of both the Leeroy and Jenkins were court martialed for destruction of federal property, (Up to fifteen qaudrillion ECUs worth, of which a Energy credit is worth half a qaudrillion), mass murder, and extreme incompetence. They were summarily execueted.
FRV Jenkins had to be scrapped from the extent of the damages, and was broken up over Baltris. Her surviving weaponry was sent to weaponry emplacements on various cruisers and frigates.
Four hundred thousand, though miniscule compared to the total fleet, were killed in this engagement. (FRV Ships are kinda crew intensive) I typically count it as 20k per cruiser, 50k per battleship.
The horrific loss had a severe morale impact, and efficiency was estimated to decline by all the way up to 10%.
In the years following the engagement, specifficaly in 2920, a new battleship class entered service and mass production. This new vessel was the best of the best, with three heavy Gamma laser and heavy gauss cannon emplacements each. It had a large belt of Neutronium armor, in which the four hypershield projectors were surrounded.
The main weapons control was in a heavily armored nook between the reactor array, a array of massive zero point reactors, and the engine compartments. It was circular, in the middle of the neutronium belt, split into the laser and Gauss sections, for their weaponry. It was coordinated by a central computer, that ensured the ship was as effective as possible without danger of malfunction, and all weaponry attacked a single target.
The class was named "Successor", and became an icon, the ideal target that any cadet worked up to, to command a Successor class. Additionally, safety measures learned from the raid of Bhudghobd ensured such heavy friendly fire would never happen again. The shells could automatically detonate when it identified a allied ship in it's trajectory of fire. Exactly how they did this we have no clue.
These behemoths quickly replaced the Agincourt class, with fifty being ordered after seeing it's efficiency, ten yards getting five each, initially. They rose the Armada on the FP scale to 1.2 million, up to 1.4. Each was individually around 3.4K FP. Most FRV capital ships sat above this line, but it was only so low because the FP scale tends to favor gunsniber lasers. Who can blame em?

Of course, this is all dead wrong.

Although remotely based in fact, this “History” Of the United Republic, is plain wrong. storeh(was bored):https://www.reddit.com/useTherandomanswerecomments/e5vgw0/short_story/?utm_medium=android_app&utm_source=share

2019.11.12 18:03 quaintlyspoken Oh how the bowl has turned!

Tinder is rather sweet to me these days. I have two M&Gs scheduled and I am absolutely humming with joy. It took a lot of left swipes, selective right swipes and looking in various areas, but the results are lovely.
I am equally open to the spoiled girlfriend and sugar baby dynamics. In my mind, so long as the attraction is genuine, the dynamic healthy and financial assistance is lavished I'm not one to complain. My goal is to settle down with one or more lifelong partners.
POT#1: handsome, excellent communicator, provider, gentleman, 23 years age difference, genuine chemistry, connection and a history of generosity.
He has never had a sugar baby or engaged in the lifestyle. However many a woman whom he has dated have been treated lavishly in respect to his investment in the relationship. When I told him what I was looking for he ironically equated it to marriage, though neither of us fancy the legality of that institution.
The only difference of his experience for his relationships to sugaring is that in sugaring there is an actual conversation and expectation of generosity, wheras before he just did for his lover without contract. Also the no intimacy before a show of love and good will.
We have a M&G scheduled for this coming Saturday. He's booking a hotel in my neighborhood for a couple days and we will further explore our connection.
POT#2: foreign, handsome, excellent communicator, many values in common, common interests, provider, gentleman, 23 years age difference, insanely genuine chemistry, soul connection and a history of generosity.
We were so engrossed in chatting and just getting to know one another that I never broached the sugar baby dynamic for clarity of relationship dynamic. We talked easily for seven hours straight, wishing each other goodnight and we're back to talking this morning.
All things considered I would be a very, very spoiled girlfriend. He has professed his intensions in full to take care of me in every way. He is also monogamous, so at any time we become official he and I will be exclusive. I'm absolutely willing to consider this trade off for this specific individual. It'd be a very natural progression. He would relocate in a heartbeat.
He is actively seeking employment overseas in North America. I have seen his LinkedIn which is quite impressive. I've never talked to a man of this caliber. I adore this man's soul. He is so sweet, resiliant and kind. We consider ourselves incredibly lucky that our connection is mutual at every level. The fit is too perfect.
He was completely open with his current relationship status. While I prefer an uncomplicated situation I am open to seeing how this goes.
The situation in question is that after a year in a long distance relationship he paid all expenses to have his fiance and her children relocated to his country and supported them, their intimacy quickly evaporated at 4 months and now at 8 months they are separated. Legally he cannot divorce her before a separation of 12 months but he has moved 2000 miles away from her.
To add a little context, his wife never kissed him. Not even once. When I first told him that I was non-monogamous he said it was outside his norm but admitted he was affection starved. His wife used him to give her boys a better life but he is determined to not let the trauma of those circumstances negatively impact him. Intimacy issues aside, she was not a very kind woman. If you've studied deadbedrooms at all you'll know the dynamic.
Our M&G is scheduled for February, with intensions towards Valentines. I am willing to wait. He will be flying out to my state for our rendevous, which may segue back to my hometown.
He will be paying for the brunt of our M&G, but has requested a small scale of effort on my part due to his current perdicament. I do not feel like this is a scam, only an aspect of vanilla dating. In the event that he acquires a new job before the M&G this will be a non issue.
Feel free to give feedback or ask questions, sugarfam.
Edit: I just wanted to follow up this post by saying that POT#2 and I had the dynamic talk last night. He understands my needs and 100% is willing to support me in full. He has no issue with being my provider, for all of my needs. Not just fiscally, but emotionally and I could tell during that conversation.
He restated that his current perdicament is temporary. The man is still working through divorce and separated. He wants to see me much sooner than February and is working hard to make it happen. I'm going to trust him. If I can't trust him I've no business considering a relationship with him. My gut and intuition are at peace.

2019.10.20 17:17 swinging_yall Help using SDC

We've been on Kasidie for a couple of years and like it a lot, but recently decided to expand our online presence with a paid account on SDC. I can see some benefit to it, but figuring it out has been a chore. Is there a help page or FAQ anywhere? It looks like the SDC equivalent of a "Rendevous" is called "Speed Dating," okay, well how the hell am I supposed to post anything to it?

Moon Landing Conspiracy h We first landed on the moon during the Apollo 11 mission on July 20, 1969. Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin would end up spending around 21 hours on the lunar surface, conducting tests and exploring the new frontier. They then were successfully able to return home- history had been made and subsequent apollo missions to the moon slide
People have been questioning the moon landing since the first mission happened, but The first person to give real voice to moon hoax conspira-nonesense was Bill Kaysing, a technical writer who had worked for Rocketdyne until 1963, and who later self-published a book called "We never went to the moon."in 1976.
slide One of the first criticisms of the moon landing was the available tech. The rockets used by NASA were liquid propellants- they used liquid fuel rather than anything solid. Kaysing claims he had exposure to the many problems that arose around liquid propellants with his work at Rocketdyne. slide One of the main issues he pointed out was the number of unusual problems that come up when you are launching a rocket like this. One example he cites is that high noice levels can concentrate heat in specific parts of the fuel tank, causing burn throughs of the tank surface. His overall point is this- in the spring through fall of 1964 alone Atlas Class rockets series D, E, and F suffered 13 back to back failures- those rockets were not on the scale compared to what was being cooked up to launch men to the moon- if we couldn’t get these smaller rockets to work, what was the chance of a larger rocket succeeding, let alone working enough to sustain a manned launch? slide His second point is this: The CIA and US Government have lied about much worse- what makes us able to trust in this case? He specicifically cites high profile cases from the time- the U2 bomber incident, the Bay of Pigs incident, and ultimately he concludes the assassination of president kennedy. slide Other Shortly after my assignment to the Rocketdyne Propulsion Field Laboratory in 1956,1 made a most fascinating discovery: the lunchless picnic. It seems that there were many fine trysting places on the 1,880 rugged, rock-strewn acres that comprised the lab. These did not escape the attention of the young men and women who were free to roam this Western landscape, both off and on assignment. For example, photo crews often took jeeps to high promontories to photograph rocket engine test stands in the process of construction. There was no objection to taking along a female companion if this did not conflict with work schedules. The nooks and crannies [pg32], the low-branched live oaks, the tall wild oats in the spring and people's natural proclivities to romance took care of the rest. Thus, the so-called lunchless picnic became an everyday reality at PFL, or Piffle, as it became known to the natives.
On occasion, these rendevous were documented with some steamy negatives and positives processed, of course, in the photo lab during the graveyard shifts. Personally, I found this relaxed, permissive atmosphere both amusing and contradictory. The latter, because, after all, in the spring of 1956 there was a pervading climate of doom: unless we could develop an engine to launch our hydrogen bombs over Russia first, the Russians would surely do us in at an earlier date. So frantic was the pace, that I was actually hired in on overtime, although my knowledge of rockets and technical writing both equalled zero Moon Landing Evidence Points No Disturbance under Engine Nozzle The lunar lander used two engines stacked on top of one another. The LEM's descent engine used hyperbolic propellants, that means two different fuels that light at the same time. The exhaust jet coming out of the LEM on descent or ascent should have created an enormous cloud of reddish coloured gas, instead we see the bursting apart of the milar covering as it leaves the Moons surface? The fuel used are exactly the same as used on the Shuttle today, and we can clearly see the exhaust smoke coming from them, so why not the LEM? slide Surely there should have been some type of crater under the Apollo landing modules, especially the Apollo 12, as it slowly moved across the moon's surface before landing. The 5000 degree Fahrenheit heat from the 10,000 lb thrust of the engine should have produced at least some volcanic rock. If you compare the molten volcanic rock at Mount Etna, that was boiled at only 1000 Celsius. I have heard some sceptics claim that the engines force would have been dispersed mainly sideways, but if this is so, what actually held up the 2,300lbs of lunar lander when it was on its descent to the Lunar surface? slide Why was there not any dust in the landing pads either? There is certainly lots of dust scattered when the LEM is leaving the Moon and if the engine simply blew all the dust away from around the LEM as it landed, how did Armstrong manage to create that famous footprint? Do you seriously believe that Neil Armstrong could land the Lunar Module by trying to judge the terrain below from a very restrictive view of the Moons surface from the small triangular window positioned on the side of the craft? slide No Stars! Hoaxers claim stars should be able to be seen if on the moon for real- the argument against is the sun and the earth shine made it too bright to see stars. slide Evidence it was a Hollywood Set slide Why does this rock have a letter 'C' on it? There is also a 'C' on the ground in front of the rock. The use of the letter C on film props is well known by the people in Hollywood and is used to show where the centre of the scene should be. One sceptic on the Bad astronomy sceptics web group has even said it is a hair??? on both the rock and ground? Now who's trying to cover things up? If you have managed to get this far and still believe this claim, then let’s actually get to what’s really going on. Have you ever scanned or photocopied something? If so, you know that any little piece of dirt, hair, dust, or whatever that gets between your original and your imaging device will show up in the copy. That is what happened in the case of the infamous “C” rock – a hair (such as an eyelash) or a small piece of lint got caught between the image and the imager when they were making copies of it. Plain and simple. In the original photograph (closeup shown below), there is no “C.” slide One of the main anomalies that leads me to believe that the Moon footage was taken on a film set is the fact that the same mountains appear on different Apollo missions which are supposed to be landed several hundreds of miles from each other. He added: "The panorama also gives a sense of how far the mountains are. Because there is no atmosphere on the Moon, objects do not become faded-out over distance and thus far-away mountains can appear very close, as they do in the two photos." "The claim that these known and mapped Moon mountains that are viewed from myriad angles in Apollo photos are really a fake backdrop that was accidentally used in two staged studio sets on Earth is not a theory but an exercise in silliness." slide In western Australia during the live broadcast of the Apollo 11 moon landing, several people saw a very unusual occurrence. One viewer, Una Ronald watched the telecast and was astonished with what she saw. The residents of Honeysuckle Creek, Australia, actually saw a different broadcast to the rest of the World. Just shortly before Armstrong stepped onto the Moons surface, a change could be seen where the picture goes from a stark black to a brighter picture. Honeysuckle Creek stayed with the picture and although the voice transmissions were broadcast from Goldstone, the actual film footage was broadcast from Australia. As Una watched Armstrong walking on the surface of the Moon she spotted a Coke bottle that was kicked in the right hand side of the picture. This was in the early hours of the morning and she phoned her friends to see if they had seen the same thing, unfortunately they had missed it but were going to watch the rebroadcast the next day. Needless to say, the footage had been edited and the offending Coke bottle had been cut out of the film. But several other viewers had seen the bottle and many articles appeared in The West Australian newspaper. Western Australia received their coverage in a different way to the rest of the World. They were the only Country where there wasn't a delay to the 'live' transmission. slide
Counter Clavius researcher Peter Barrett examined surviving copies of The Western Australian dating to the time in question and failed to find any mention whatsoever of Coke bottles in the moonwalk telecast.
Chief librarian Tracey Bennett (no relation to Mary) for The Western Australian has confirmed that no letter or article regarding a Coke bottle in the moonwalk telecast was printed in either of their two newspapers for at least two weeks following the broadcast. (And it only took Clavius researchers 48 hours and one request to confirm this.)
slide Perspective Problems/Shadows Another example that appears to be faked is the footage of Earth taken from the Apollo 11 when it was 130,000 miles away. This is the very first view ever taken of Earth on the mission and it seems strange that Buzz Aldrin would film the Earth when he was stood far away from the window, why would he do that? Surely you would want to get close to the window to get the best picture and also to eliminate light reflections that are evident towards the end of this sequence? But no, we see the window frame come into view on the left of the shot. The camera isn't set to infinity either to get the closest shot. The window frame that comes into shot would have been out of focus if it was. Did the astronauts actually film a transparency of the Earth that was stuck to the window? You may think this odd, but a few minutes after filming the Earth, the cameraman adjusts his lens and focuses on Mike Collins inside the craft. What we see is what appears to be an exposure of the Earth taped to the window that is in the background to the right of him. That is the very same window that Aldrin was filming the Earth
https://youtu.be/mCHG6uJH5L8?t=60 The video also asserts that a shadow can be seen, suggesting the camera wasn’t right up on the window as claimed. The assertion is that the porthole window is why the earth looks misshapen because they are much closer to earth than they are letting on.- video has been debunked- the “secret footage” that was leaked wasn’t secret. It was released by NASA. slide Van Allen Radiation Radiation plays a big part in space travel. Solar flares could have affected the astronauts at any time. The Apollo leaving Earth would travel through 2 specific areas of very high radiation called the Van Allen Belt. slide The first field is 272 miles out from Earth. The amount of radiation in the belts actually varies from year to year, but every 11 years its at its worst when the sunspot cycle is at its highest. And guess what? 1969 to 1970 was one of the worst times to go, as this was the time where the radiation was at its peak. slide I have had numerous internet chats with sceptics who say that the radiation would not play a part in the missions because Man would have not been in the radiation belt for too long. My answer to that is, when Dentists or Doctors take X ray pictures they either leave the room or stand behind a sheet of thick lead to shelter from the radiation. Why did NASA only use a small sheet of aluminium to protect the astronauts when they knew that the radiation levels in Space and on the Moon's surface would be many hundreds of times more deadly? And why would they risk their astronauts to such conditions? In 1959 Bill Kaysing was privy to a study made by the Russians. The Russians discovered that the radiation on the moon would require astronauts to be clothed in four feet of lead to avoid being killed.
Did you know that the US Government tried to blast a hole in the belt 248 miles above Earth in 1962? During Operation Starfish Prime a Megaton Nuclear Bomb was used to try and force an unnatural corridor through the Van Allen Belt... Unfortunately, the radiation levels actually got worse, not better. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KFXlrn6-ypg What they created was a third belt that was 100 times more intense than the natural belts, and as estimated by Mary Bennett in 'Dark Moon - Apollo and the Whistle-Blowers, by2002 this artificial zone will still have 25 times more radiation than the other 2 belts. There is no agreement to how wide these radiation belts actually are. Dr James Van Allen, the discoverer of the belts estimated that they were at least 64,000 miles deep, but NASA say they are only 24,000 miles deep. Each Apollo craft spent approximately 4 hours within the belts. slide So to what lengths did NASA take to shield the astronauts against the radiation? Its accepted that a minimum of 10 cm width of aluminium would be needed at the very least to keep out radiation. However the walls of the Apollo craft and capsule were made as thin and as light as possible and as a result the craft initially could not carry enough air inside to withstand the equivalent to sea level air pressure. NASA had to reduce air pressure inside the cabin to cope.
One of the worst sun flares ever recorded happened in August 1972, which was between the Apollo 16 and 17 missions. This single flare would have delivered 960 rem of virtually instant death to any astronaut who was up in Space, and yet all of the Apollo astronauts were carrying out their missions in what amounts to nothing more than a thick linen suit. These pressure suits may have helped protect the astronauts against heat or micro meteorites, but certainly would not have given any radiation protection. By the way, there is no known method of registering when and how strong Solar flare activity will be. SLIDE
So, I guess NASA just struck lucky! The radiation would have greatly affected the film that was shot on the Moon. Physicist Dr David Groves Ph.D., has carried out radiation tests on similar film and found that the lowest radiation level (25 rem) applied to a portion of the film after exposure made the image on the film almost entirely obliterated. Why didn't that happen to the Apollo films? SLIDE COUNTER Charged particles are damaging to human bodies, but the amount of damage done can range from none to lethal, depending on the energy those particles deposit, the density of those particles, and the length of time you spend being exposed to them.
In the case of the Apollo missions, the solution was to minimize the second two factors. We can’t control the energy of those particles, though they can be large. The density of the Van Allen belts is well known (from sending uncrewed probes through them), and there are hotspots you can definitely avoid. In particular, the innermost belt is a rather tightly defined region, and it was possible to stay out of it for the trip to the Moon. The second belt is much larger, and harder to avoid, but there are still denser regions to avoid.
For the Apollo trips, we wanted to send the astronauts through a sparse region of the belts, and to try and get through them quickly. This was necessary in any case; the crafts had to make it to the Moon in a reasonable amount of time, and the shorter the trip, the less exposure to all sorts of radiation the astronauts would get.
slide
In the end, it seemed that these tactics worked; the on-board dose counters for the Apollo missions registered average radiation doses to the skin of the astronauts of 0.38 rad. This is about the same radiation dose as getting two CT scans of your head, or half the dose of a single chest CT scan; not too bad, though not something you should do every week.
WEIGHTLESSNESS https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zz9Bzi_GyD0- this video talks about how the weightlessness was done using wires- amazing hammer and feather-that was faked somehow- the hoaxers point to a recreation done by HBO that proves Hollywood can fake it- the recreation has a cut in the middle while the original video is a straight shot- harder to fake. Also show crazy experiment that is so obviously faked https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KDp1tiUsZw8 original hammer and feather http://www.clavius.org/gravleap.html
SLIDE Kubrick Connection 2001 A Space Odyssey was filming in the summer of 1965 when the Apollo missions were in the midst of final planning of the missions to come. slide Filming would continue for another 2.5 years and the budget ballooned from 6 million dollars to 10.5 million. The assumption here is that some of the 205 reported special effects shots were filmed for the US Government and they paid 4.5 million for them as a cover. The moon landing would be shot by Kubrick using the movie as a disguise. Over 70 corporations and government institutions were consulted for the film- again the cover of the movie allowed for various pieces of input on how the moon landing should look. slide Also the film was crucial to preparing Americans as to how space exploration should look. It set the expectation so all the government had to do was film the landing in accordance with those expectations that they themselves set. slide Kubrick confessed his (forced) involvement in the moon landing hoax of Apollo 11, two decades later. He did this by making deliberate changes in Stephen King’s original novel. slide The main character in this story, named Jack (played by Jack Nicholson), represents the part of Kubrick that was forced to direct the staged moon landing. His inner creative child wanted to rebel against this scam. Jack’s son Danny represents this rebellious voice within Kubrick. slide Therefore, in the film, Jack is warned about Danny’s plan to involve an external party, namely the audience. slide In King’s novel, room 217 was the scary hotel room. Kubrick changed this number to 237, as the (in those days) commonly used distance between Luna and Terra was (about) 237,000 miles. slide At a certain moment in the film, Danny is playing in the hallway. When he stands up, the Apollo 11 on this jumper symbolically lifts off, and goes into room No. 237. This room represents the film studio where the fake moon landing was staged. His visit of this room No. 237 wounded Danny, meaning that the artist Kubrick was damaged by this Apollo 11 scam. Later on, Jack also enters room No. 237. At first Jack sees temptation, before he realizes that he was actually caught in a horror. By this shocking scene in this film, Kubrick confessed that the huge budget for making his space odyssey film seemed very sexy at the beginning, before he realized how horrifically ugly the Apollo 11 scam really was. Further on in the film, Jack’s wife discovered that Jack had been writing the same sentence over and over again, for many dozens of pages. That remarkable sentence, which only briefly appears in King’s original novel, was: All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy The first three symbols of this proverb are used by Kubrick as a hidden reference to the abbreviation of the Apollo 11 project: A11.
Danny wears an Apollo 11 sweater (1); Room 237 (2) represents the moon-landing stage where Kubrick supposedly worked—the moon is about 237,000 miles from Earth; the prevalence of Tang cans (3) (created for astronauts) in the hotel’s pantry; the pattern on the carpet (4) where Danny plays matches that of Launch Pad 39A, from which the Apollo rocket took off. https://youtu.be/E1NsA_FdbHg?t=69 bathtub scene

2019.06.10 09:00 in-a-fckd-up-situatn I'm in a messy dilemma right now. Me (27M) and my first-cousin (28F) are in a secret "FWB" affair. She told me out of the blue recently that she's 3 months pregnant and intends to keep the baby. Dealing it with the family is one thing but what about the legal ramifications and such?

I would love to say that this was a result of some drunken ONS gone astray but it isn't and this tryst of ours go WAY BACK FURTHER into the past. We're currently in SF right now and living on the same apartment if that helps. Both of us are single and have well paying jobs. Both our parents don't know that we live together or about our affair, I think no one in our social circle even knows. It's strictly between us two. The problem we're having is regarding the baby's father in the certificate and how to explain to her parents who the father is.
She wants to keep the baby because first, she knows that she'll be traumatized for the rest of her life if she aborted her first baby and second, the baby's the "proof of our love" in a sort of cheesy way. As I said, there's a backstory in all of this and I don't know if anyone cares enough to know. Anyways, our reason right now is its just a result of a random one-night stand and she doesn't know the guy's name. Her parents would be devastated but it beats out knowing their nephew impregnated their daughter. I'm asking about the legal ramifications because I know incest is illegal in some states but not the extent of it. I'll probably answer some questions in the edit of the post later.
TL;DR: Don't fuck your cousin and especially don't impregnate her.
The Backstory:
I don't know if this helps a bit about the "genetic diversity" a user questioned but I'm bi-racial. I grew up in my formative years in Southeast Asia and the only people I know from my Mom's side then was just my grandparents who visited us every year. When I was around 12-13 y/o, my parents decided to move back to the US for me and my younger siblings to have a better education and opportunities. Obviously we didn't have a house there but my uncle was gracious enough to allow us to stay at their home for the time being which is also my mom's hometown, in rural Kentucky. They live in this big-ass ranch home and it was no wonder why they have no issue for us to stay there but the nearest neighbor is like a 15 minute drive. I grew up in a subdivision/village where the other kids are a walk away and this was a death sentence for me.
It was also there where I met Stephanie, my cousin, for the first time. She's a year older than me and when you have both kids entering puberty and starting to develop interest in the opposite sex... yeah. You get crushes especially if both of them don't really look like each other. She was also glad I was there because I was the only one around her age, both our siblings were under 9 then. Needless to say, we hung around each other A LOT and grew really close. It wasn't until a couple of years later around when I was 15 that the trysts began and we "experimented" with each other. I think it started out as a "kissing dare" then went into a "make-out in a minute" type of thing then we started touching each other. We were still devout Christians by this point, and as long as we don't have full-on penetrative sex, it was still "safe". We thought dick-grinding was still "sanctimonious", I guess? It only took a 5 or so sessions of that before one of us said: "If this is already good then maybe sex must be great, right? Jesus will forgive us too, right?" So that night we lost our virginities to each other. This went on and on for the rest of high school till Stephanie moved for college.
Anyways, this was supposed to be the "end" of this "rendevous" of ours. You see, after Steph moved to Penn State and I to USC the following year, we were still texting each other but it gradually stopped overtime until I heard from her sister she already had a BF. I realized I need to move on with my life too as she did from me. I started meeting other people and found love. We still go back to Kentucky during the holidays with our families but our interactions were limited or we downright avoid each other especially when she brought the guy she was dating. In hindsight, as we grew into our adult years, we were probably extremely ashamed of what we did back then. I chucked it off as a "blunder years" on our part as we were ignorant of proper healthy relationships and also to not fuck your cousins. I'm writing this now because as you know, it DID HAPPEN AGAIN.
Fast forward a few days before Christmas 2017, I'm back at my uncle's as well as all of our family. Some of us got a bit too happy drinking that evening including me and I decided to rest a bit in the patio. I was a bit surprised to see Steph there too. By this point, Steph and I have only exchange greetings/pleasantries to each other and we never had a full on conversation since forever. Maybe because I was a bit buzzed that I just joined her there in the deck. It was slightly uncomfortable to the both of us first but I just pretended to ignore it and ask her how she's been. It was small answers like fine or it's great and when she asked back, I would just go on about the problems with my coworkers, my life, and shit. This opened her up a bit and we had a conversation about each other's life. She's working in management for a cosmetics brand now and she's based in SF too. I was surprised about that and told her I was too. I asked her since when did she move and she told me a year and half ago. Then I told her about this great underrated places and niche restaurants around there where I used to go with my ex. Surprisingly enough, she asked me about her. I told her we broke up months ago because she got too stressed balancing her studies for her Master's and our relationship. I asked her about hers and she said that she's been single for a while. I told her to try Tinder or some of those dating apps and she already did but she ended up ghosting them or just flaking out. I teased her about that and told her some of my embarrassing stories trying Tinder out. We were just joking around by this point and for some reason, I got courageous and asked her the last time she had sex. I thought she would be apprehensive about this but she told me truthfully that she hadn't had one since a year ago. I was even skeptical about it and teased her about it. At this point, I don't know if it was the beer or my dick that took over my mind but I started to tease her about the things we did back then. How we did it in her car or on school and stuff. She laughed it off and jokingly laid all the blame on me that I was being a man slut then. I retorted back that it runs in the family. Both of us were trying to suppress our laughter at that moment. When we both calmed down, I finally asked her if she's curious to do "it" again (yeah, this is all on me) after so many years. If it still "fits"? She was silent at first but she smiled back and we sneaked back into her room and up til' the entire duration of our stay there. Out of respect for our families, we drove to the city to do it in a hotel or a parking lot.
A month later in SF, I got a message from an unknown number. I asked who it was and it was her. She's asking if I could hang out and get dinner or something and I obliged. We spoke, ate, and left and that's when she told me honestly why she called me. It was basically a booty call. She has been a bit feeling horny for a few days after our encounter and asked if I was interested again. I'm not dating anyone by this point and too lazy to flirt and work just for a hookup on Tinder, so I said sure. We go back to my place and magic happened that night. This happened again and again and after a few weeks, we decided to be an exclusive FWB for awhile. We set boundaries like if you're interested/planning to date someone, we should immediately end this. If we do a ONS with another person, atleast get tested afterwards. If one of us wants to end this, we must stop it and respect their feelings. I honestly thought this would only last for a few months. Similar to a firework, hot and heavy at first but would gradually fizzle down after the novelty wears out. I'm not gonna lie that the taboo nature of what we're doing turns us extremely both on and us being family comes up during dirty talk. At one point, she stopped this when she was planning to date a guy she met but that only lasted for 3 days. It also didn't help that my apartment was nearer to her work than hers so she ends up staying most of the week in mine and when her lease ended, I just offered her to stay with me.
In public, we treat each other like acquaintances and our interaction is very cordial and platonic because someone might recognize us but when we're alone or at home, we flirt, we kiss, and we're very touchy with one another. Heck, just this summer, the both of us went to Seattle and around the Pacific Northwest and acted like a couple madly in love with each other. As I said, we grew up with each other and our interests are similar, lots of inside jokes and stories, and we make each other laugh. If we weren't cousins, we would probably announce that were dating and madly in love but our social media stuff is only of ourselves. It's almost a year and a half since we've been with each other and both of us doesn't want to end this "FWB" we have going on and we're (atleast for me) not interested in dating others. And with the kid now, I just don't know.
So some points raised in this thread:
Q: Are you planning to marry?
A: If the both us are confident enough despite the response we will get from our family, we will. Right now we're still just a year into this relationship and would probably wait another 1-2 years before the question of marriage is questioned again.
Q: Would you abort the baby?
A: It depends. We're still waiting for the baby to develop enough to see if he/she starts showing developmenta; defects like down's syndrome or whatnot. She agrees to abort it if that happens but if the baby's healty, we would keep it. We don't lack the funds or whatnot to abort it.
Q: Would you tell your folks about you being the father.
A: Eventually, yes. Both of our parents are devout Christians and it would probably make them angry but Steph and I decided to tell them that's what God wanted for the both of us or something.
Q: The hell is SF.
A: San Franciso, baby.
I'll probably update all of you in the future if all of this goes to hell or into a happy ending. But right now, I'm only focused on her health and the baby. I'm not gonna deny that I'm lowkey excited to be a father even if the situation is a bit unusual.

2019.03.16 00:56 TheThreeLaws Leaving Earth: A Session Report

Decided to play a hard Solo game of Leaving Earth, with both the Outer Planets and Stations expansions. I haven't played Outer Planets but maybe once, and dabbled with Stations (but that integrates with the default game).
As a brief explanation--Leaving Earth is a game about exploring the solar system, beginning in 1956. Due to that start date, a time when our own solar neighborhood was still deeply mysterious, each location has multiple "states" it can exist as, represented by drawing from the possible ones face down. Only once you get a spacecraft near a location can you survey it, revealing the dangers and opportunities involved. Is the moon actually covered in a deep layer of dust that destroys any spacecraft that lands? Could there be life on Mars? Is Phobos actually a hollow alien artificial satellite (a real theory, once)?
You have to research technology (rockets, reentry, life support, rendevous/docking, etc), and each gets 3 Outcome cards, consisting of Success/Minor Failure/Major Failure. Using the tech requires an outcome be drawn, and you can then pay to remove the outcome--a tech without outcomes is considered safe.
From there, it's a race to get the most points out of the randomly selected objectives, or Solo, get more than half the available points. Each maneuver requires your expended thrust to exceed the difficulty multiplied by the mass of the overall rocket. Everyone gets $25million, and it's use it or lose it.
I started in 1966, as the Outer Planets expansion extends the timeline to 1986 instead of 1976 in the base game. I gave myself a few more techs than the rules suggest, but I felt I could have fully researched more than 2 techs in 10 years and wanted to focus on Outer Planets missions. I think I had too many Outer Planets points available too, but oh well.
My Objectives: Survey Jupite/ Survey Io// Survey Ganymede// Survey Jupiter and all Moons// Neptune Survey// Artificial Satellite in Orbit// Venus flyby// Orbital Experiment// Mercury Lande/ Phobos Sample Return// Mars Experiment Return
The trick with Outer Planets is that transfer windows are critical. Venus can be used as a gravity assist, but if you arrive in the wrong year, you'll end up in deep space, not Jupiter.
My goal was to get a radiation resistant Gallileo probe to Jupiter, to grab all those points, and another out to Neptune. That would also get Venus Flyby, getting 31 points, and 39 remaining. I knew a Phobos lander was possible using Ion drives (which can do some maneuvers over multiple years, producing more thrust based on the time taken), which was already tech I'd need to research to undertake several deep space missions. Getting that objective would push me over the 50% mark.
All was going well, until my first Galileo probes were off, and I realized I hadn't really counted on just how far away Neptune was. There was no way in the decade and change I had that either mission could get there. With those 10 points off the board, I realized I had to launch a lander to Mercury. That's actually not easy, particularly as you need landing tech and there's no atmosphere at all to slow you down. Still, I got the mission launched using an impressively large rocket.
From there, I had time to kill. Galileo 1 reached Jupiter Flyby and surveyed all it's targets, protected by a fortunate draw for Jupiter's radiation. Phobos was approaching Mars, and discovered that the Red Planet had Salty Water, netting me 4 points.
I decided to pursue a manned program while I waited on Galileo 2 to arrive at Saturn and Phobos 1 to retrieve it's sample and return. This required researching multiple new techs, including reentry and the reuseable Shuttle program. A few tests and lots of research later, I was able to put a Shuttle into orbit with an experiment, which was performed on a waiting science module and returned.
My Mercury Lander completed it's mission, Phobos 1 returned an unremarkable sample, and Galileo 2 discovered methane based life on Titan! Before crashing into the unexpectedly dense debris from Saturn's rings. I began testing life support for long term missions, and lofted a large space station into orbit right as the game ended.
All told, I got 52/76 of the original points, plus 10 for discovering life and 4 for discovering Water on Mars.

2018.10.31 08:13 parahsalin44 He dropped the L bomb after 4 days

Okay internet, so I have a dilemma. Strap in for a long one folks. My friend recently set me up with a friend of hers who she said was super nice, so I said why not right? I have never had a serious relationship before or even kissed anyone. I'm 21, so I'm kind of an old maid for this whole dating thing. He (23) had been in a serious relationship previously, so I figured, he probably has a good grip on it. I went to hang out with him and his friends for a game night and had a lot of fun, and so the next night he asked me to hang out again. I went and had a really nice time, I was attracted to him, so being bold, I kissed him. I decided I really liked this new thing I just tried, so the next night when he asked me to hang out again I was pumped. We had some deep convos, cuddled, and started making out. I told him I wasn't ready for the whole sex thing yet, and he said of course, take as much time as you need. But then later in the middle of making out he looks at me and says "I know it's only been a week, but I think I love you." And I fucking stopped and sighed, I didn't know what the fuck to say reddit. I told him "ummm i think it's a little to soon for that." He said, "I just thought I'd be honest about how I was feeling." And being the overtired dumbass I was at them time, I said, "I respect that, I just think we should take things slow." He said "Okay, we can go slow, I'll do whatever it takes." I was all like cool. Look, I admit that this next part was fueled by naivity, tiredness, and hormones. I'm embarassed in fact, but I kept making out with him quite intensely. I was enjoying this new thing and I got a shitload caught up in it. We even talked afterwards, me attempting to get to know him a bit better, which wasn't bad conversation. After I left and actually slept on it and mulled it over for a day, I am annoyed with myself. I know that the L bomb is a lie and it is just infatuation and not real love. I'm actually intelligent despite my previous rendevous. I also didn't wanna be a total dick, that's not how I roll. Should I have run for the hills?

2017.12.22 04:51 MetalBrigade Question about Owarimonogatari part blu-ray release.

I can't seem to find any reliable or straightforward information about when the second part of Owarimonogatari will be released on DVD. I'm talking about the three arcs: ***** ****, Hitagi Rendevous, and Ougi Dark. I'm not talking about the second volume of Owarimonogatari part 1 which is already available. Please share if you have any info, or if there isn't any about the release date. I'm excited to pick up all Owarimonogatari sets after the holidays so I am fiercely curious.
Thank you.

2017.08.28 01:49 911bodysnatchers322 Transcript of George Webb Video Series Part 130: "Hillary's Leakers, Hackers, and Henchmen" [@Georgwebb / #HRCRatlne]

  • >>>CONT
    • So forth get his defenses down take him to a comedy club that first comedy club
    • Take him there get him laughing because what you really want to do is set up when he goes to the next comedy club
    • Because the next comedy club right up on Georgia right up that way is where I believe the FBI interrogated him
    • That's gonna be at I think it's I know I can't remember my addresses but it's 3503 I think 3503 Georgia
    • And right next to it's gonna be a strip club it's a front for a PR agency
    • But I believe he's taken up there a strip club
    • I believe he he's gonna get Mickey'ed or something at that point and they're gonna drag him just it's gonna take a second to get him behind there and there that's where he's gonna be interrogated
    • Why do I think why do I think Shawn Lucas was interrogated?
    • I also thought not I also thought there's a there's a garage door here back here where I thought he was interrogated
    • Maybe a pump house but I just I was just thinking out loud like where would I do it?
    • Well this isn't a fun place to walk?
    • This is off the beaten track it's loud it's noisy
    • There's the pumping station
    • So there's a building just beyond that with a bunch of equipment lots of loud noises
    • You want lots of loud noises going on you want a place that's got trash and everything or nobody wants to go
    • You don't want a lot of witnesses right when you're doing your interrogation
    • Now I think the FBI interrogate him up on Georgia that that
    • I think it's 305 3 3 503 Georgia
    • Then he's brought down here I was gonna talk about Trello and I got off on this but but then he's brought down here for I believe the the beating this is gonna be the SEIU Clubhouse beating this is
    • Now the ratline handshake has already taken place
    • The reason why you do the second beating is to remove all the evidence from the first beating
    • The FBI wants to be able to say look if this guy's ever caught if he ever talks and for some reason he doesn't die or so or one of the other guys who's taking the Shawn Lucas out of here talks, we could say no we got all this physical evidence you beat him, you can't have blood all over your hands and all this stuff
    • This commits your ratliners that's why you do the second beating
    • And I believe the second beating was back with either in this area or back by the pump house
    • Again what I love about this is when you when when they're guys who did it here it they go "how the f_ck does he know that?"
    • Sorry I did not mean to swear
    • Okay. Got that?
    • All right so let's go back to Trello this fourth here turns into Georgia
    • So straight up the street you could go straight down here you shoot him right over here down on w you'd be the Howard here in a minute or two
    • I'm gonna College of Pharmacy
    • So that's the loose framework and I hate to take it off of the Awans but as long as I'm like right here in the hood I want to tell the story and we're in his neighborhood not like hood that's not a black-white thing it's just like I'm in South richest neighborhood
    • Ok Trello
    • So apparently on Twitter you can do this best tweets
    • So what I need to do is go into my Twitter and then click all the tweets where I've tweeted out documents along the way over the last since February
    • Its just gonna be a lot of tweets
    • But apparently that way you can create a best tweets timeline and then there's a way you can customize your timeline
    • And then there's this guy named Kevin Ship somebody said just talk to Kevin ship it just at Kevin ship Kevin Ship is the guy for Twitter to Trello
    • And then there's this thing with personalized timeline or customized timeline or something like Twitter to presentation
    • So what I want to get you is Trello is maybe an intermediate step trelles more of a discovery tool for us
    • Like like we were a team of lawyers right Trello is a great tool for us is with a little note cards and we're sorting all these note cards
    • We're done with that process now I mean you could I mean keep sending your note cards which are newspaper articles little snapshots of newspaper articles and titles with dates
    • You can still send those to chgrat512 at gmail.com that part of discovery has to be over right now though
    • I mean you can keep sending the files there but we can't keep we need to move into the presentation phase we
    • Now have to present to the judge and the end by extension in the world of court a court of public opinion Okay.
    • And that's going to be something more like a Thompson timeline
    • So I don't know exactly how that's gonna work but this is where smashing Blackberries comes in somebody saved smashin Blackberries like smash in like not with a G smashed in Blackberries dot com
    • We have it for we have it so III / co a blog that just goes down and lists all these articles for smashin Blackberries do com
    • And we just it's just article after article after article and that would be this cool art that's cool artwork
    • So smashin Blackberries calm just boom-boom-boom-boom-boom all this evidence document after document after document
    • And what we'll do is just put in each block but it would really be cool as if it was like three times the size of a Trello card
    • So instead of a one by one it'd be a 3 by 3 in terms of the size of the Trello card compared to these new blocks
    • And would just be this thing you could scroll
    • So the first card would be Imran Awan one comes to the United States Manitoba
    • So would be a block of pictures around that event all the evidence we have to establishes him being at on four five one eight Manitoba
    • I think that's the address four five one eight Manitoba in Virginia
    • Yes him we got word we got word that maybe Terry McAuliffe had a surprise for me going into Virginia
    • So I had to push off Virginia for one day
    • But we'll get back there we'll get back it's a beautiful campus I love this campus
    • So anyway then the next event whatever it is Imran Awan joins inter America
    • Anthony Wiener sponsors Imran Awan for Inter-America whatever that date is and then
    • So on all the timeline of the events but starting in 1998
    • So the judge has a really good example and mortgage here's the day the judge has only got them two counts for two to mortgage frauds once for that hawks at address
    • And then the other one is for Strayer let's put the other five in chronological order
    • The other five bad mortgages
    • And then we'll put the CDW delivery for the 150 iPhones and iPads and
    • So on
    • So that's that's all I am really want to say at this point
    • Enjoy your walk around well this is good this is Georgia here ed Murphy way Howard Center and
    • So this right here is Georgia 2200 block of Georgia
    • I believe that the place where the FBI did the interrogation is 3500 block 3500 it was in some of my videos and I don't know if I deleted it or not been 3500 block
    • So not that much farther up about a mile and a third up is where I believe all that occurred
    • So anyway I think there'll be cameras
    • The only difference is the face we're looking for is not Seth Rich
    • The cars we're looking for these are not these these are not the people you're looking for
    • The cars you're looking for are the cars that come down this street two o'clock three o'clock and all these cameras
    • That's the working theory does all working theory and we'll go from there this I
    • Not that I made the statement but you put out the working theory and kind of wet wet molding clay
    • And then the crowd molds it I never said this was a completed work just saying this is molding clay at this point Okay. everybody thank you
  • Lose and Go To Acre 111? I Mean Acre 121 - YouTube
    • Hey scrunch
    • So last one I may as well finish this one off Lou's Bar and Grill over there you can see it behind our mail carriers always salute our mail carriers
    • There's the set up right there whatever group you're gonna have it's gonna be right there
    • But it's gonna get switch over to the ratliners to 121
    • You can see this is a fairly high end retail area that bar has been closed an awful long time a long long time
    • Acre 121 is closed and just to remind everybody all the cameras from that night all the cameras gone
    • Nobody they confiscated all the cameras
    • Now why would McCabe do that why would the FBI even be involved at all?
    • There's the there's the station Columbia Heights station Columbia Heights redline why would the FBI and be involved at all why would the FBI I could be coming up with wacky stories about when guns got stolen and then when they got moved back in time
    • So it got stolen before the murderer crazy stuff why is the FBI involved in this at all
    • It's a it's a guy who works at the DNC
    • See the FBI has plenty of resources plenty of resources
    • They can
    • Hey scrunch
    • They can work these deals so I'm just put it out there but why does the FBI come up and down the street and confiscate all the cameras
    • Why? why what's the reason why hasn't anybody asked that question?
    • Why did you confiscate all the cameras that night?
    • We're gonna move it on I just as long as that was here I was gonna finish this off
    • But I think if just stepping through the logic of this it just doesn't make any sense why would you?
    • Now now did the reason that Aaron asked for that phone later on in February was it because that he called Sean Lucas and lured him to Lou's Bar and Grill?
    • Why else would you want the phone five months later?
    • Why else would you want to goes it was a lead behind it was something that was left behind
    • They had he they had to crack it and get rid of that evidence
    • He lured him Sean Lucas got lured there Sean Lucas came here on that red line from Sligo red line Silver Spring the closest the closest red line to slag Oh to watch an AMA or whatever that fight was the MMA
    • The reason why you do an op on a night where there's MMA is because there's a huge crowd of people
    • Everybody mixes in nobody remembers any one person sitting all by themselves all alone
    • That's why
    • And you get in and you get out as quick as possible you don't want to leave a lot of footprints a lot of tracks when you're setting up this deal
    • But I'll guarantee this was the Green Mile for more than just set for more than just Shawn Lucas it's a common op that's run over and over and over just like a school play
    • There's just like a touring group of actors that are school players
    • And if Kelly Mulka
    • Hey scratch
    • If Kelly Mulcha is in an acting troupe with Seth Rich of course they were on the phone with each other 87 minutes
    • Of course they had three phone calls right get it is he there yet Kelly is he there Okay.
    • He's coming he's coming your way Okay. I'm following him
    • Now I'm outside he's at the comedy club
    • Now no I'm still watching I'm still waiting Okay.
    • Here he comes Okay.
    • Okay he's done all right sure
    • He's on the phone 87 minutes
    • Go ahead and publish the phone call then there's three phone calls go ahead and publish it of course that's the beauty of this by just changing the player and just inserting one different player and everything else staying the same
    • They can call everybody a conspiracy theorist and then one at a time play their cards out saying
    • That's a conspiracy that's a conspiracy that's a conspiracy right and gradually over time play everything out if you only switch one thing that's why most of the story is true the only thing that's not true is cui bono and modus operandi
    • There's no reason to kill your child
    • You kill your enemy or at least somebody you perceive as your enemy somebody who's trying to break up to have the DNC break you up
    • That's why it was there
    • So anyway if you don't believe that then you show me some evidence for Seth Rich
    • Show me any any metadata any Okay. we're gonna move on to the back to the Awans
  • 3505 Georgia - Shawn Lucas' Last Picture Show - YouTube
    • Well here we are on the other end of Georgia this is the higher end straight that way down earning over here down Irving straight that way is where Lou's Bar and Grill is
    • Every time you have an OP you always have to have a place to to get everybody organized rendevous point it's gonna be close to the OP where you're gonna run the OP
    • So this is where I believe everyone met that night again working theory but I believe everyone met
    • You'll have different events at these types of places and they'll put up they'll put a red star here typically
    • Or some kind of star usually a red star but they want you to know that it's a safe place to go it's a place where you can meet people there's a backroom etc and then there's gonna be somebody there who can help you
    • So just remember Midlands
    • Remember that red star start looking for events the Midlands run didn't have a red star today but you're gonna see that red star
    • Same with med star red star
    • It's a little bit noisy here as we're walking down Georgia remember I said early take Irving over that's gonna be where Shawn Lucas was
    • But you're gonna walk him you're gonna walk him part of the way but I think you're gonna want to take him by car a cab like this you don't want a cab like that for the last little stretch run right over here
    • So I'm gonna get my guys in my rendezvous point
    • They're gonna come up here they're going to decide what they want what kind of information they want
    • They're going to come down here you're all going to come into the comedy club legged speak like a big group but guys they're all gonna be laughing
    • They're gonna come in twos or threes at a time but it's going to be eventually everyone in the comedy club and at the strip club upstairs are going to be on the team
    • And I know it sounds amazing but again there's no budget limit the black budget is seven point seven trillion
    • There is no budget limit we walked by it no no Okay.
    • We're close oh here we go did you sell did you sell oh that's what I want -
    • Digicel I want - did you sell
    • So here we go there's no joke comedy dojo comedy right here
    • The other Club is going to be up that way a little ways
    • It's also going to be a wonderland just be some confusion hey man you want to go to the other Wonderland to be this one
    • Are you going here that's your stairway to heaven
    • The front is an advertising agency during the day but that's that's where Shawn Lucas I'm not gonna go up there
    • That's where I believe he was that night about 2:00 a.m. I'm guessing
    • So I wanted to run that through just
    • So people could see it
    • Like I said straight down there is the first Wonderland
    • And I think there was some confusion I don't think that he actually went there but he that's where they picked him up
    • And they said well this isn't the same Wonderland there's confusion what you really need to do is go down further go down to this other one dojo comedy here they got the comedy tonight it's not at Wonderland
    • So I think I think Shawn might have walked I think he might have walked the distance the short distance to the first wonderland thinking he was walking to the comedy club
    • That gets him away from all the cameras that are around there
    • There's a Red Line station down there there's a whole bunch of people because of just a very busy area that by Lou's Bar and Grille they're 121
    • So I if it was me again this is just working theory I'd walked him down to Wonderland then based on some comedian whatever
    • Then the comedians not there they say no it's just down the street at dojo
    • Then you get a taxi you like that that's where Joe la pulls up with the two ms-13
    • Now I know that sounds complicated but believe it or not they trained this and this stuff and they trained in teams and this stuff
    • And they'll do different pranks on people when it's not all for the marbles
    • when it's just just to make somebody just defend just to Fent somebody's girlfriend sometimes
    • So I'm not saying it's always a Green Mile
    • I'm not saying these are always green miles but they're practiced over and over again for different people
    • The reason is is you don't want a covert force in your country and never have practice before
    • You want to be practicing and training all the time it's very military trained and practice time
    • Like I said it's not always a Green Mile personal it doesn't always die
    • But this one they did
    • Now again somebody wants to show me Shawn Lucas where he was in the last 20 days of his life
    • Rick Ford his girlfriend Savannah have her talk to interview her and go through all of his facebook
    • Usually he just had walked into the DNC right
    • Pretty famous guy right what where'd he go what happened to him
    • People should have been following the case right all the way to the convention
    • That's what they didn't want they didn't want Sean Lucas making films every day going to the convention, saying here's how the DNC conventions going
    • That's why you didn't see Sean Lucas two weeks before the convention
    • Again now prove me wrong prove me wrong somebody wants to prove me wrong they can but I'm just saying it's working theory
    • It's it's wet clay until somebody proves me different but if you look at cui bono again go through the process cui bono however you want to say it that's a big weight that's a big weight in determining whether or not somebody is gonna kill somebody
    • If you really hate somebody chances are you're gonna kill them more versus if they're your kid you really love them you're probably not gonna kill him does that make sense steal live from Stranahan
    • So there's a big cui bono the you don't want to kill seth rich he's your he's your ticket to energy pioneer solutions and big contracts for the energy contracts
    • So that would be dumb
    • Then you also got modus operandi with school plays Berkman and Bauman
    • Now we've got and this is this is the way I'm not gonna say SEIU maybe
    • If you think about it what came up last night in discussions the puppet masters and this whole thing is lined out the puppet master is just as good as devil's chess board
    • And I didn't know about it and that's what's so great about even though it's a little sloppy and in heaven wine and whatnot you learn
    • So many great things and that Heinlein wrote the book on it the way you do covert thinks is you don't reinvent anything
    • You take a university that's already sitting there you infiltrate the university in the janitorial Department nobody's watching the janitorial Department I get my I go to my FBI whoever that my FBI is I say you got a couple of convicts that we can use for wet work or red work or whatever
    • They say sure we got a whole bunch of them this is why it was so important for McCabe to have a connection for putting it together these teams
    • These red teams in the US with Petraeus yeah I got a whole supply I got thousands how many you need well let's see well let's see if you'll trade Howard will we control SEIU
    • So we will put the kill team into Howard it'll be the four guys at night on the on the graveyard thing.
    • Those are the guys that trained in this stuff those are the guys your kill team it's a red team look at Kissinger look at the Channing look at Chile look at Argentina
    • Look at Central America with Matt negroponte
    • Look at Petraeus anywhere Petraeus has ever gone
    • You put in these covert teams you just need a front that's all you need Howard it's a front
    • You put in your team your way to go and the number one signature that Morrell and Petraeus have is that sneaky little laughs at the end of that fu Foxtrotting Yankees FY
    • That's how I know it's Petraeus I know it also because of all the email and all the other stuff but I knew it the reason why I knew it on day one was because it was Petraeus
    • The reason I know now is I've got 10,000 citations but anyway we're working on it putting it all together
    • Let's let her buddy work on that for a bit
    • Now cut it here
  • Classic Motors DC Embassy Row - YouTube
    • Okay. I just just talked with these gentlemen behind me these Secret Service officers
    • And I said you probably remember I'm in Tenleytown American University this is spy University CIA University just behind me
    • So I asked the Secret Service guys, "I'm going up here to classic motors DC and there was a shooting there etc"
    • And they can't talk about it but anyway I said in previous films there was twenty two embassies within five minutes of classic motors DC and I wanted to check my facts
    • He goes "no no no no there's 600 it's way more than 22"
    • So if you want to sell a car like that better buy a car like that you got to go to classic motors the classic motors DC right
    • So up Wisconsin Avenue as my good friend last night corrected me not Massachusetts Avenue there's a lot of embassies on Massachusetts Avenue
    • So that's what confused me there but said no 600
    • So it's not just embassies Secret Service covers the embassies but then also diplomatic locations
    • Some our military locations some are kind of quasi consulates
    • I think there are meeting points for people to give each other thumb drives but that's just me and Craig Murray talking and Dennis Kucinich
    • Why do those guys watch my show?
    • I think it's because they know why does Dennis Kucinich you Craig Murray watch my show hmm you gotta ask yourself that question
    • It's not because I'm popular although I love Dennis Kucinich I love Craig Murray too
    • Those guys are great but I don't think it's like there's more to the story
    • So yeah
    • So so Washington a little bit of time topography here this is gonna be the high ground in Washington
    • As you can see we're going down now it's through the high ground CIA loves their high ground
    • Plus it's easier to build a tunnel if you got a hill right just going from the side rather than down
    • And so this is Wisconsin Avenue as you can all see
    • And guess what and have one of everything
    • <<< George looks up at several radio and tv antennas with cell anntennas attached >>>
    • Spy kids got to learn somewhere spy kids got to learn somewhere
    • So that may actually be municipal right there but spy kids get to use it as well
    • So right at the top of that hill telling town it's kind of like with American University behind me is everything a spy kid would want ever
    • You got it all here
    • Wow ok fair enough
    • If I'm gonna have a school play somebody's dying [on] this night, right?
    • <<< George points to Mariweather v McGregor boxing match poster >>>
    • See it's Meriweather--that's what I'm going to have my school play
    • Lots of people lots of confusion Oh somebody tripped over the wire for the for the cameras
    • So this is a quarter-mile
    • So I don't know if like
    • But anyway Okay. let's let's talk about something else while I'm walking down classic motors
    • <<< GPS female gives instructions >>>
    • Now exactly where I am let's talk about it we're close
    • So let's talk about going hard or going home going hard or going home going hard or going home I'm sure everybody's all the skiers out there have said that expression go hard or go home
    • Well there's gonna be a guy in our story now I'm gonna be introducing him
    • And he's sort of gonna remind you oh gosh but what face should I put on him well we'll just we'll just call him "go hard" just take the D off of it--just take the D off drop the D
    • [GOHAR]
    • And the reason why you're gonna know GOHAR you go hard or go home guy
    • The reason why you're gonna know GOHAR is he's gonna he goes hard he has 41 tickets under one driver's license
    • And then 17 tickets under another drivers license that's a lot of tickets
    • (I was just I was just in a I shouldn't be navigating a talk at the same time)
    • I was just in I was sleeping my car when I was being hunted down electronically falsely imprisoned
    • And then defamed by the failing New York Times and CNN and just info Donnie, right
    • So I'd spent yeah that's right two nights
    • Here's a guy with 41 tickets and been 17 it reminded me so much of Imran Awan Imran and Abid with the 17 tickets
    • Some of them some of them with alcohol and the whole thing
    • Coming up on classic motors DC
    • Here's where our destination is so everybody can see it
    • So yeah a guy shot here I'm not sure exactly where he's shot in the basement is what I was told
    • Ten police officers come here 10.
    • They usually don't send ten police officers for a suicide
    • What they do is they send I believe just one team in the event of a suicide and they don't send the medical examiner ever in the event of a suicide I don't believe it's only an event of a murder
    • So the medical examiner did come here and I believe there's five witnesses to this
    • So what's interesting about this what's interesting about this place is this as both two owners this year are dead
    • A guy named Peacock, Robert peacock and a guy named Gibson. James Gibson
    • So that's weird and usually the medical examiner and ten police officers don't swarm a place for your suicide
    • And the other thing is if you're building $50,000,000 Nemoir mansions I'm gonna get the name of that mansion wrong--for Frank Islam--you're building 50 million-dollar mansions, why would you want to commit suicide?
    • Beautiful wife I don't understand that doesn't make any sense to me--makes no sense
    • So I'm gonna look at some of the classic cars over there
    • We're gonna find out about some of the classics
    • I'm sure I'm gonna get thrown out there's no question in my mind
    • But I'm on a public sidewalk right now
    • So anyway I saved the GOHAR story for when we got to cars
    • Because it just they go together
    • GOHAR and the cars and the 51 or wait 41 tickets on one license and then 17 tickets on the other license
    • Well the thing that's interesting about GOHAR is that he is he's like a buyer for houses
    • He ends up selling the Hawkshead house selling the Hawkshead house to Suriya Begum in 2004
    • I believe that same Hawks head house yeah the one with the Blackberries of the houses the Imran's house of Blackberries
    • Imran's house of Blackberries
    • I should have said this before [IMRAN'S HOUSE OF BLACKBERRIES] --- yeah [HAWKSHEAD]
    • I believe GOHAR sells--somehow gets that title to no no Naeem Begum Nayeem and will check it
    • I'll publish it but then it just kind of stays these tickets kind of stay
    • Kind of just seems to always be around this GOHAR guy
    • So I just thought maybe is there something more to this is there like maybe a like a network like a group of people that have trained together
    • Oh where's GOHAR from well he's from Lahor--he's from Lahore Pakistan we just had a couple articles come out by spencer ackerman there was actually about the time those Navy SEALs were killed
    • He identified a Pakistani ISI group that was trained by the CIA right up that hill
    • Right up that hill right where we were at one of those embassies that we talked about remember that embassy we talked about all those embassies trained right up that hill
    • So I'm not going to go in to classic motors DC right now because they know I'm coming
    • But I don't know maybe maybe somebody's waiting over there
    • I'm gonna get thrown off I know in one minute but I always go back to talk to the oh you guys got used cars
    • You guys got used cars too? Used cars too? Do you have used cars too? Habla espanol
    • G: You have used cars too?
    • VACCUUMING LATINO: Use car? Oh yeah that's a motorboat << it's not a motorboat >>
    • G: Do they run out of the basement? Is that it run out of the basement?
    • VL: No the basement is in
    • G: Is in there. Do you remember this--I'm a reporter--you remember the guy who got that died here?
    • VL: Jim?
    • G: Yeah yeah yeah can I do that or no? Can you say a little bit about Jim? You remember that day?
    • VL: Yeah we was here.
    • G: You remember that day?
    • VL: yeah
    • G: What happened was there whole bunch of police cars?
    • VL: Nods
    • G: Like 10? like 10 guys?
    • VL: Like 10
    • G: Like 10 guys?
    • 5 cars right?
    • VL: yeah
    • G? And how long were they here?
    • VL: Who?
    • G: The police
    • VL: From Five or Six hours I think
    • G: Did the medical examiner come?
    • VL: I.have.no.idea
    • G: OK
    • VL: Yeah because you know we was inside
    • G: Did you hear the shots?
    • VL: No
    • G: Okay. Didn't hear the shots
    • VL: No Because you know I was here with the powerwash making noise
    • G: Ruido
    • VL: Mucho ruido so
    • G: Did he seem like he was depressed? Like he's rich right? He's a rich guy.
    • VL: I never see him like depressed
    • G: Did he ever work here--I mean he was a builder right?--Gibson builders did he did he work here to sell cars?
    • VL: I have no idea but he was renting an office inside
    • G: He was renting an office inside--he builds these 50 million dollar a mansions but he was renting an office here downstairs?
    • VL: No no downstairs right here right here
    • G: right here? Okay. Interesting interesting Did you sell a lot of cars to diplomats? To diplomats, to rich diplomats?
    • VL: Yeah...but no really because the car is classic car. Down there will rent classic renting Volvo and Volkswagon--we don't sell those cars
    • G: oh ok
    • VL: He sells just classic cars
    • G: Just these classic cars. I see there's a lot of cars down there. Ok
    • All right man well what's your name, I'm George?
    • VL: Joella
    • G: Okay. Nice to meet you man. I appreciate it. I'm gonna buy a car I just know it
    • So so there's Joella Okay.
    • There's there you have it lots of lots of action here
    • I guess we can confirm that there was five police cars here and ten cops
    • Again highly unusual protocol for a single suicide
    • Normally and we do have pictures to the medical examine here
    • And remember I've got five counting five witnesses including six right there
    • So why would a guy making oh god I don't know how much money he made he built a billion dollars worth of 1 billion
    • Can you imagine a builder building 1 billion dollars worth of cars worth of houses
    • Renting an office in a car lot
    • Does that make any sense to you?
    • Does that make any sense to you?
    • Why is he in there? << Better call Saul >>
    • Now unless unless he's got CIA friends up here let's say hey Jim next time you're building an addition right to one of those 600 houses 600 diplomatic missions, why don't you put in an extra million
    • Let's put it in an extra million
    • And we'll ship five cars we'll ship one for every one of your family members diplomatic container set it right on right on down the highway
    • Sounds like another car dealership I know
    • CIA with Imran Awan and Dr. Attar.
    • These things to me seem easy
    • Why did Peacock--why's he gone? Why'd he die?
    • Why would Jim commit suicide--doesn't make any sense
    • More on this story
  • Luke Answers the Call - YouTube
    • The wires blowing up the wire is blowing up the wires blowing up
    • Daily Caller Daily Caller Daily Caller
    • Luke you get the metal for today
    • Luke Rosiak stepped up today and published Andre Taggarts name
    • And he published I think a piece that's been in the cabinet for a while, but that's just between me and you
    • But anyway Luke stepped up and he published Andre Taggart's name he said black marine
    • He said boom this is bullshit this isn't Islamophobia
    • I'm a representative if anybody is a downtrodden group in the United States it's gonna be black Americans
    • That's all bullshit this is a spy ring in Congress these guys need to go to jail
    • That's what Andre Taggert said he was quoted
    • Again I think it might have been in the it might have been in the file for a couple of months
    • But we're not going to talk about that
    • we're gonna talk about Luke answering the call today
    • Luke you answered the call today--Thank you
    • Now what Luke didn't do because it wasn't obvious at the time that this thing was done a little bit a while ago
    • That with the twenty Blackberries
    • The twenty Blackberries wasn't in the article
    • I'm gonna celebrate a little bit right now, because Taggarts out there
    • We had to humanize Taggert
    • Taggert can't just be a byline his name is out there now
    • Now everybody needs to see the face of Andre Taggert
    • People need to see the face of Andre Changa versus the unknown mug shot of Alpha Jalloh and the unknown mug shot of Imran Awan
    • This has to come down to symbols be easily understood by the American people
    • It's got to be the face of Andre Taggert the black supermodel guy who's serving his country and blah blah blah versus Imran Awan spy ring in Congress 14 years that it's got to be simple simple simple at this point
    • So that when we go a week from now and we go in front of the judge we say look Your Honor this person defrauded a marine and ex-marine an ex-navy al out of their money
    • And they use false names they've got 11 aliases
    • They've got all these people that have got 58 tickets selling them houses
    • Doing all kinds of weird stuff just on this one property we're talking about judge
    • So we're going to develop all that
    • So anyway as far as the timeline is concerned
    • The timelines well under control Bye-Gone and Chrissie have this well under control
    • But keep sending your stuff to [email protected]
    • Gosh that sounds like a like a diet plan or something like that but where you keep sending your stuff keep sending your stuff down
    • That we've grown from Trello which Trello is business cards just think of Trello being business cards small format but way to get a lot of business cards a lot of they basically leaks leaks
    • DOS leaks
    • There are ways of getting a lot of links organized
    • But now we need to move the wedding invitation we're going to the judge
    • Now we're going to the World Court of opinion we need the big wedding invitation
    • So we need to go to a format of more of a web format
    • Like the Thompson the Thompson timeline type format
    • That Thompson timeline format if anybody has any ideas about that but it's me article article article article article here's the history judge of the Hawkshead property the house of Blackberries boom boom boom boom boom boom
    • This could be the house of BlackBerry's in easily readable wedding invitations as we go down
    • That's the format that we're going to
    • So we got all that we're gonna have more on the car dealer
    • we're gonna have more on the car dealer I promise
    • We've got to get the the hammer down now on the BlackBerry's this article that Luke wrote today
    • I'm very proud of you (might have been in the can for about two months) but anyway it's been in he wrote it
    • Now he needs to do a follow up and a nail down the exact number of Blackberries
    • Because it's going to agree with Kalyn Kaelin's report from Congress
    • The 20 of thefts the 20 burglaries things line up for a reason because that's the facts
    • There's 20 Blackberries that's why the post says 20 Blackberries
    • That's why everybody says 20 Blackberries that's why there is 20 Blackberries, because 20 people said they got their blackberry stolen
    • It wouldn't say 20 Blackberries stolen if four people got their blackberry stole it would say 20 Okay.
    • That's why there's gonna be 20 left over
    • Now they could have given out some of the Blackberries and repurposed them
    • And so there's 16 in or there was 11 or whatever
    • But we really need to nail down with Andre
    • Andre bro you need to come forward again say exactly how many Blackberries
    • I'm sure you probably took a picture I'm sure you probably took a picture your wife works Walter Reed maybe ONI I don't know where she works
    • But she probably is a pretty smart cookie she probably took pictures
    • I think it's now's the time to publish the pictures
    • What we don't want is McCabe to destroy more evidence
    • Look at the Huma server look at the Hilary server look at this whole history of the McCabe not being involved in this Awan server
    • And trying to bury it with the Washington capital piece
    • Cannot let McCabe do this investigation
    • Cannot let Peter Kazik do this investigation
    • Can't let Loretta Lynch do this investigation even though she's not here anymore
    • {{{ 911bs: Can't let Sessions continue to look like a startled squirrel doing nothing anymore }}}
    • Can't let any more evidence to be destroyed
    • Can't any more evidence be locked up out there in Clarksburg Virginia can't trust these people anymore to do the justice to the American people okay
    • So Audrey Taggarts names out there I said this morning that that was the big goal
    • <<< VIDEO cuts short >>>

2017.07.30 06:30 houtex727 Blue Code Wheel... Stuff...

(Warning, this be long... but there's a bit to it, so... yeah. I ain't forcin' ya to read it. Heh.)
I heard somewhere around here or /wakingtitan about the Blue decoder disk outer ring's new things around the edges. Something about melting points of things.
Some of these looked like years of note to me. And the others, I don't know why, but I thought maybe they were mentioned in sci fi or had some astronomical/scientific importance... So I went a diggin' to see what I could find for any of 'em.
I bet it has no correlation to anything, but... it's still very interesting to see what shows up when one does some digging on the numbers...
I will list them in order, 4-9, A-F, and they're correlating number on the outer wheel. Oh yeah, of course 0 - 3 just have the two dots which means nothing (unless you use Morse, then it's an I.)
Here we go, I'm sorry in advance...
4 has 1670 on it:
Charlstown Carolina founded. Aka, bases. :)
February 25, Maria Margarethe Kirch, Astronomer from Germany is born.
May 2, The Hudson Bay Company was chartered. This was an exploration and trading company. Trading posts were had, along with ships. Sounds a bit familiar...
June, Nova Vul, a nova which is perhaps caused by a collision of stars, is discovered.
XKCD note: the 1607 one is about the Laws of Physics (but is also in joke form.)
5 has 1907 on it:
1907 is a Prime number.
January 6, the first Montessori School is opened.
January 12, Sergei Korolev, the Father of Soviet Rocketry (aka, USSR's Von Braun) is born.
January 15, The 3 element Vacuum tube is patented by Dr Lee de Forest, which enables practical electronics to start to happen, leading to the computers we enjoy today, among so many other things.
July 7, Robert A. Heinlein is born.
October, Esperanto reformed into Ido, intended as a 'universal language' of Earth. (You have learned the Ido word for 'Interesting'.)
October 17, Marconi plays the Mamba... well, no, but he does make the first Transatlatic radio transmission.
December 28, Last confirmed sighting of a Huia in NZ. (Why you discover all species...) The Huia is now exinct, and was a bird.
Unspecified dates:
Albert Einstein theorises the Equivalence of Gravitation and Inertia, which in turn helps him to predict the gravitational redshift.
Carl Hagenbeck opens Tierpark Hagenbeck, first moated enclosures for zoo to better simulate animal natural environs. (Discover all species...)
Albert Michelson gets the Nobel Peace Prize for Physics for his work on the speed of light, some of which lays foundation for Special Relativity and the current theories of astrophysics today.
Agnes Mary Clerke, Astronomical Historian, dies.
Georges Melies, France, makes The Eclipse of 1907, a silent film about the observation of a solar eclipse.
6 has 1538:
October 28, First University of the New World is opened on Hispanola.
June 18, Treaty of Nice.
March 25, Christopher Clavius, German Mathmetician and Astronomer, is born.
XKCD note: The 1538th one is about language, in music form. See Ido. :)
7 has 1455:
February 23, First book with movable type printed, by Johannes Gutenberg... The Bible. Again with the language angle...
Unknown dates:
María de Ajofrín is born. She was a Visionary, aka she "saw things", like a Mystic.
Wenzel Faber, astronomer from Bohemia, is born.
8 has 2477, which is a prime. This one is obvously not a date. However, there is this:
NCG2477 is a cluster of stars, and considered to be very good to observe as an example of such.
9 has 2157, again not a year. But the story by Issac Asimov, 'The Fun They Had', takes place in this year. It's a short story about kids in that time who go to a special room of the house to do their learning. One of them finds a book that tells about an earlier time when kids went to 'school' and had a 'teacher'. They then imagine what it must have been like, and 'what fun they must have had.'
A has 1963, a bit busy like 1907 was:
March 22, Beatles first album released, 'Please Please Me'
April 1, General Hospital debuts. I only mention it because I got hooked on it when I was stuck at home with an illness. :)
May 15, Project Mercury comes to a close when Gordon Cooper flies the last Mercury mission. It is shortly cancelled after so NASA can concentrate on Gemini and Apollo.
September 7, Pro Football HOF opens with 17 charter members. I like American Football, so it gets to be mentioned too.
November 1, Arecibo Observatory opens.
November 22, in Dallas Texas, Lee Harvey Oswald (allegedly) assassinates President John Fitzgerald Kennedy as the motorcade passes through Dealy Plaza. Oswald would be deceased in a few days, and the world never really knows what happened and debates this matter to this day.
November 23, The very first Doctor Who episode is broadcast by the BBC.
December 25th, Disney releases 'The Sword in the Stone', their 18th feature film, and Walt Disney's last.
Unknown dates:
IEEE Computer Society formed
Sketchpad created.
"Modern" Smiley is born.
The word "clone" is coined by J.B.S.Haldane
Edward Lorenz publishes the discovery of the 'butterfly effect', and chaos theory is born.
The lava lamp is invented by Edward Craven Walker. :)
B has 961. It is a perfect square, the largest square with strictly decreasing digits, and a lot of other mathematic things of note. But it seems NOTHING much happened, and nothing that would relate to NMS or Atlas or such. Very strange.
But as an experiment, I went with 'BC' to see what happens... and there we go:
961 BC, Rama is born, according to Hindu Astronomy, or so this one source I found said. Let us say it's truth, and therefore it's obviously a reference to the book 'Rendevous with Rama'.
Other interestings of 961 I found:
Country code of Lebanon
Get this, in Lebanon today, there's a place/entity called 'WOW event'. It is very similar to the 'WOW Signal', so I'm choosing to believe it's not a coincidence.
XKCD 961 is about Steve Jobs who died the day earlier to its posting. It's called Eternal Flame.
KOI-961 is now called Kepler 42, and is a red dwarf 126 LY away.
C has 3414. Again not a year. Still, stuff can be assigned to it:
Part of the number SDSS J1531+3414, which is a mass in the universe that produces gravitational lensing (bending of light around it).
3414 BTU is 1000 watts. (ok, fine, 1000.545, geez)
Nature.com's article 3414 is about quasiparticle dynamics and spin-orbital texture of the SrTiO3 2D electron gas. Say that 3 times fast. :p I figure it has something to do with the universe so maybe it's important. It also has Ti in it, so...
D has 3033 Not a year. But stuff:
AST 3033 is a particular astronomy course at unis, however, the subject and material can be different at each university. I guess its some sort of default code in their computers...?
NIH 3033 is a Mercury related safety of handling/acquiring/disposing policy.
RFC 3033 is a request for comments in 2001 regarding networking... stuff. I'm lazy. It crossed my eyes. It really doesn't have importance to me enough to read it, sorry. It's about networking though. :p Go read it if you want, but it seems to count to me.
DD3033 is a Department of Defense (USA) Pathways Program Internship Program Participant Form and Agreement. Perhaps needed to be part of that Pentagon Program, Titanwatch...?
IBM 3033 "The Big One". IBM's 1977 top of the line processor at the time. Big stuff, took up a room. Relevant.
E is 1768. Yay, back to a year!:
August 8, James Cook departs Plymouth on his first discovery voyage about the world. March 21, Joseph Fourier born, France. Mathematician, worked on frequencies and waveforms. (You have been shown a new signal in the cosmos...)
August 26, The HMS Endeavour first sets sail. Later, James Cook would command her his later voyages.
F has -38. I took it to mean '38 BC':
This correlates to Year 1 of the Spanish Era Calendar. Aka, 'time is relative', I think.
Also, it's the beginning of the Pax Romana.
Not much else of note happened as relates to Atlas.
So... there I go. Whether that's worth the time I put in it, well... I didn't mind, it was fun. Enjoy, Interlopers!
