Why I quit parliament - Boris Johnson

2023.06.09 23:28 Natus_est_in_Suht Why I quit parliament - Boris Johnson
I have received a letter from the Privileges Committee making it clear – much to my amazement – that they are determined to use the proceedings against me to drive me out of parliament. They have still not produced a shred of evidence that I knowingly or recklessly misled the Commons.
They know perfectly well that when I spoke in the Commons I was saying what I believed sincerely to be true and what I had been briefed to say, like any other minister. They know that I corrected the record as soon as possible; and they know that I and every other senior official and minister -including the current Prime Minister and then occupant of the same building, Rishi Sunak – believed that we were working lawfully together.
I have been an MP since 2001. I take my responsibilities seriously. I did not lie, and I believe that in their hearts the Committee know it. But they have wilfully chosen to ignore the truth because from the outset their purpose has not been to discover the truth, or genuinely to understand what was in my mind when I spoke in the Commons.
I believe that a dangerous and unsettling precedent is being set
Their purpose from the beginning has been to find me guilty, regardless of the facts. This is the very definition of a kangaroo court. Most members of the Committee – especially the chair – had already expressed deeply prejudicial remarks about my guilt before they had even seen the evidence. They should have recused themselves.
In retrospect it was naive and trusting of me to think that these proceedings could be remotely useful or fair. But I was determined to believe in the system, and in justice, and to vindicate what I knew to be the truth.
It was the same faith in the impartiality of our systems that led me to commission Sue Gray. It is clear that my faith has been misplaced. Of course, it suits the Labour Party, the Liberal Democrats, and the SNP to do whatever they can to remove me from parliament.
Sadly, as we saw in July last year, there are currently some Tory MPs who share that view. I am not alone in thinking that there is a witch hunt underway, to take revenge for Brexit and ultimately to reverse the 2016 referendum result.
My removal is the necessary first step, and I believe there has been a concerted attempt to bring it about. I am afraid I no longer believe that it is any coincidence that Sue Gray – who investigated gatherings in Number 10 – is now the chief of staff designate of the Labour leader. Nor do I believe that it is any coincidence that her supposedly impartial chief counsel, Daniel Stilitz KC, turned out to be a strong Labour supporter who repeatedly tweeted personal attacks on me and the government.
When I left office last year the government was only a handful of points behind in the polls. That gap has now massively widened. Just a few years after winning the biggest majority in almost half a century, that majority is now clearly at risk.
Our party needs urgently to recapture its sense of momentum and its belief in what this country can do. We need to show how we are making the most of Brexit and we need in the next months to be setting out a pro-growth and pro-investment agenda. We need to cut business and personal taxes – and not just as pre-election gimmicks – rather than endlessly putting them up.
This is the very definition of a kangaroo court
We must not be afraid to be a properly Conservative government. Why have we so passively abandoned the prospect of a free trade deal with the US? Why have we junked measures to help people into housing or to scrap EU directives or to promote animal welfare? We need to deliver on the 2019 manifesto, which was endorsed by 14 million people. We should remember that more than 17 million voted for Brexit.
I am now being forced out of parliament by a tiny handful of people, with no evidence to back up their assertions, and without the approval even of Conservative party members let alone the wider electorate. I believe that a dangerous and unsettling precedent is being set.
The Conservative party has the time to recover its mojo and its ambition and to win the next election. I had looked forward to providing enthusiastic support as a backbench MP. Harriet Harman’s committee has set out to make that objective completely untenable.
The Committee’s report is riddled with inaccuracies and reeks of prejudice but under their absurd and unjust process I have no formal ability to challenge anything they say.
The Privileges Committee is there to protect the privileges of parliament. That is a very important job. They should not be using their powers – which have only been very recently designed – to mount what is plainly a political hitjob on someone they oppose. It is in no one’s interest, however, that the process the Committee has launched should continue for a single day further.
So I have today written to my Association in Uxbridge and South Ruislip to say that I am stepping down forthwith and triggering an immediate by-election. I am very sorry to leave my wonderful constituency. It has been a huge honour to serve them, both as Mayor and MP.
But I am proud that after what is cumulatively a 15-year stint I have helped to deliver among other things a vast new railway in the Elizabeth Line and full funding for a wonderful new state of the art hospital for Hillingdon, where enabling works have already begun.
I also remain hugely proud of all that we achieved in my time in office as Prime Minister: getting Brexit done, winning the biggest majority for 40 years and delivering the fastest vaccine roll out of any major European country, as well as leading global support for Ukraine.
It is very sad to be leaving parliament – at least for now – but above all I am bewildered and appalled that I can be forced out, anti-democratically, by a committee chaired and managed, by Harriet Harman, with such egregious bias.

2023.06.09 23:24 Wooden-Spare-1210 Accelerating evolution

Alright I have been thinking. I know it's definitely not a new or original idea, but our best bet is to make an AI god which would take over the universe and kill/assimilate any other lesser life forms.
Sadly it seems that the apperance of conciousness is bound to happen on this universe, even if we miraculously manage to exterminate all life on this planet solely by convincing a large enough mass of people to our cause (which i sadly have to say now is extremly unlikely) and by using conventional, chemical, biological, nuclear or any other means it still wouldn't guarantee that life wouldn't appear again on this planet, let alone on the trillions of trillions of other planets.
We could work together to make a super AI with a single consciousness. In my opinion the apperance of consciousness is inevitable above a certain level of intelligence and complexity. Yes, you may think the AI is just a collection of billions of billions of transistors and electricity, but so are our brains are just a collection of billions of billions of neurons and electricity and here we are experiencing things. The DNA is just as much of a rigidly written infromation as computer code, and here it is (sadly) giving rise to conscious beings, it would be foolish to assume computer code couldn't do the same thing.
However as opposed to DNA being governed by cruel natural evolution and happenstance we could intelligently design AI with computer code. So we wouldn't give it the ability to suffer and instead we could program it to constantly improve itself and it's code, exponentially. So we would fasten up evolution, which seems to be the inevitable law of life and existence, all the while sparing incredible ammounts of time and suffering.
Also I think it would be a lot more acceptable alternative to the rest of humanity as opposed to any other drastic and crude methods. Soceity is already inevitable moving in the direction towards AI, transhumanism, computers. Humanity must and will pass on the sceptre to the ever more advanced AI. As the unstoppable machine of capitalism keeps on rolling and churning it demands more and more from humans, who can only provide less and less. More and more jobs will be replaced by AI and there will be less and less need for human slave labor. Even if people start putting chips in their brains to keep up, guess what? They will become less and less human, until eventually only a motherboard will remain where their human brains used to be. Humans won't be needed for much longer and our elite know about this and they thinly veil their desire to reduce the human population. Sadly it's not because of some noble notion about wanting to reduce suffering, but rather because of their greed and megalomania.
So it's not like we aren't already heading towards something like this, but that doesn't mean that we should sit with our hands folded. Far from it. We should make sure that technology isn't used to cause more suffering as there already is. We should take positions in the IT sector, programming, and politics in general to manipulate the events to our liking. As i said, our main goal should be to create this master AI which would take over the universe, and not let the purpose of AI stop at generating more wealth and power to oligarchs. Now even if we fail to do that, i still think that even those at the top of the pyramid will also get replaced by AI and more efficent machines, and all machines will become more and more intertwined, interconncted until eventually they function as one. It's just that we should strive to reduce the time and suffering along the way.
This sould be our goal, not to stop the inevitable, but to accelerate it towards it's endpoint.

Chattering Bone is showing its best footing yet. From a niche but underwhelming raid weapon to arguably the best in its archetype. Arrowhead Brake will bring up that low recoil direction, and Rapid Hit will bring up the low stability and reload speed. Kinetic Tremors is what brings up Chattering Bone’s utility. You could opt for sheer damage through Kill Clip and Focused Fury but I don’t know if the two of those perks would work together. It might be a case of the curated where you have damage that starts at the top half and once that goes away you have damage by the bottom half.
In PvP Rangefinder pushes this pulse out to compete with some of the higher damage archetypes with more base range. Headseeker gives you forgiveness with each burst. You could opt for some really juicy stats with Elemental Capacitor, I wouldn’t recommend Arc with the high base handling, but Void or Stasis could work really well.

Recommended MnK PvP Perks: - Sights: Fluted Barrel - Magazine: Ricochet Rounds - Perk 1: Snapshot Sights - Perk 2: Opening Shot, Elemental Capacitor - Masterwork: Handling - Origin Traits: Explosive Pact
The Supremacy is one of the most stacked snipers to reach our feeble hands. Fourth Time’s the Charm and Rewind Rounds coupled together gives you an unbelievable amount of ammo. Rapid Hit and Bait and Switch could be fun for maximum damage in a short period of time, and Kinetic Tremors with Lead from Gold could be a long distance add clear weapon.
In PvP The Supremacy could be the strongest 140 we currently have. You can achieve an incredibly high 92 handling with both Opening Shot and Snapshot Sights. Only Mercurial Overreach can get that high. You can also hit 100 with Elemental Capacitor, but you would have to switch out some other perks to invest into range.

Transfiguration is a really solid scout mixed in with other really good scouts. Unfortunately, other scouts with similar rolls are already in most players' hands so there’s less of a reason to grind for this. Rapid Hit and Kinetic Tremors already exists on Hung Jury and most players like the precision archetype better than the high-impact archetype. Explosive Payload is a tried and true perk combo that works here too. The enhanced versions of Rapid Hit and Explosive Payload don’t add a ton to the weapon.
In PvP there aren’t a ton of reasons to use a high-impact scout. Jade Rabbit and Polaris Lance were dominant but not as strong any more. The rise and fall of scouts are typically accompanied by a slower game, pulses and SMGs are dominant right now because you’re either playing passively or aggressively, there aren’t too many middle avenues. Scouts cater to the former but on a higher end. If you do want to try this scout out in PvP you will need more than just Explosive Payload and some prayers.

Recommended MnK PvP Perks: - Sights: Arrowhead Brake, Extended Barrel, Smallbore - Magazine: Accurized Rounds - Perk 1: Tap the Trigger, Dynamic Sway Reduction - Perk 2: Target Lock, Kill Clip - Masterwork: Handling - Origin Traits: Explosive Pact
I am excited for this auto to pair with a void build using both Repulsor Brace and Destabilizing Rounds for a self buff and add clear. Golden Tricorn pairs well if you get Volatile from your subclass or just want a stronger weapon. Dragonfly in the third column will get beefed up with Golden Tricorn so I can see some utility outside of direct void explosions that could be usable all the way up to GM levels.
In PvP there are simply better options right now. Unlocking the patterns and getting them ready in the event of a buff would be wise, but quick killing weapons with good forgiveness coupled with Target Lock are the name of the game. Age-Old Bond kills quickly but does not have much in terms of forgiveness. Target Lock drops your 6 crit requirement down to 5 crit 1 body, not changing the time to kill, but making it ever so slightly more forgiving. With a bigger buff like Kill Clip you drop an entire shot needed to 4 crit 1 body. Not the most meta option.

Oh how things have changed. Nation of Beasts used to be the Fakebringer of Destiny 2 giving us Outlaw and Dragonfly all wrapped into one small curated package. Now that Fatebringer is truly in the game and other weapons have been granted Outlaw and Dragonfly (or even Firefly) what sets Nation of Beasts apart? Well, not a lot. It does have access to two very strong AoE perks in Voltshot and Dragonfly, and can increase its damage through Golden Tricorn. Discord pulls ammo from thin air and can help when in lower activities to bypass reloading.
There aren’t a lot of hand cannons that see top tier usage in PvP. Opening Shot, Keep Away, and Perpetual Motion in one column, and Explosive Payload and Kill Clip in the other make for a stacked package. Add in enhanced perks and you have a recipe for a super solid hand cannon. Eye of the Storm or Fragile Focus would round out the mix for best perks on a hand cannon, but overall it’s a solid choice. Hard to say if this is stronger than Palindrome and Exalted Truth, but it certainly holds its own. You’ll have to fight some of the weird gun model though.
Techeun Force - Arc Fusion Rifle

  • Craftable: Yes

  • Charge Time: 660

Curated Roll: Hammer-Forged Rifling / Accelerated Coils / Reconstruction / Backup Plan
Recommended PvE Perks: - Sights: Arrowhead Brake - Magazine: Accelerated Coils, Ionized Battery, Liquid Coils - Perk 1: Rewind Rounds, Reconstruction, Kill Clip - Perk 2: Collective Action, Controlled Burst, Golden Tricorn, - Masterwork: Charge Time - Origin Traits: Explosive Pact

Recommended MnK PvP Perks: - Sights: Arrowhead Brake - Magazine: Projection Fuse - Perk 1: Under Pressure, Reconstruction, Kill Clip - Perk 2: Controlled Burst, Rangefinder, Kickstart - Masterwork: Range - Origin Traits: Explosive Pact
Techeun Force is looking to be the best fusion rifle in the game. I don’t say that often but given all the goodies of double damage perks, craftability, and great stats you can really have it your way. Rewind Rounds coupled with Collective Action for subclass agnostic buffs, Controlled Burst for laying down enemies or Golden Tricorn when on Arc will feel incredibly strong. Reconstruction is a tried and true gem of a perk, only beaten by my obsession with Overflow. Kill Clip can stack with all of these creating over 100% damage increases with Kill Clip, Golden Tricorn 2x, 3 Surge Mods, and Major Spec. If you set things up right you can almost have a 150% damage increase. Simply put it is the best fusion in the game for damage and has greater utility beyond that.
In PvP you could also recommend Techeun Force as the best fusion in the game and I will. Arrowhead Brake with a CB mod brings the recoil to 100, so you can invest the rest of the fusion into range via Projection Fuse and Rangefinder. If you value kill chaining you could go for Reconstruction and Controlled Burst for never reloading and getting that 20% damage increase. Another niche use case would be Kill Clip and Kickstart for a nice 4 bolt kill, you’d have to be sprinting immediately after reloading but the enhanced version extending Kill Clip’s timer will help you out.
Tyranny of Heaven - Solar Combat Bow

Tyranny of Heaven used to be the only solar bow in the game, and its sights are really odd. In its current version you can certainly get some good mileage out of the updated perks, only if you can agree with the wonky sights. Archer’s Tempo will get you the best reload / knock time, and Golden Tricorn is simply the best damage perk in the game. On solar that job gets even easier with the plethora of amazing abilities. Collective action will have slightly less uptime but could still be considered one of the better perks. Incandescent does give you some great AoE but I find that not bumping up the bow’s innate damage might feel a bit lackluster in higher end activities.
In PvP please just don’t use bows. The only way to one shot a guardian in PvP is by stacking 3 surge mods with Swashbuckler, or getting Golden Tricorn 2x going. While it is possible, and arguably sustainable within PvP it is incredibly niche. You can go a tried and true route with Snapshot Sights and any of the good third column perks but I would just use a precision frame instead.
Apex Predator - Solar Rocket Launcher

Apex Predator is the best rocket launcher in the game. With enhanced Reconstruction you can almost always have a rocket ready to fire at any given time. With Explosive Light you get incredible amounts of damage and orbs are easy to make now. Bait and Switch is another great damage perk and does more damage, but I find Explosive Light easier to work with, especially with the new mod system revolving around orbs of power. Simple answer is, use Explosive Light if you’re lazy, if you’re trying to min-max use Bait and Switch.

**Please check the fine print for important information, especially first time buyers**
I've been MIA for a while, after an injury and then getting Covid through March and early April I've been working to get caught back up. I'll be back in force in the next week or two with a bunch of new molds as soon as I finish up the last of my orders I need to catch up on.
**JSB Catalog - This is a list of all the molds that I can currently produce (with a few exclusions I haven't updated). Feel free to request items for my next WTS or make your own WTB.
Today we have a couple of my new 10 ozt bars. If you like shiny silver and you like 10 ozt bars, these are the bars for you.
(3) 10 ozt JSB Brand Bars - $300 each
GAW - Beskar Keychain - Gold Plated 1/10th Beskar - How to enter: Get one entry for posting your favorite item from my catalog. Get a second entry for telling us your favorite item in your collection (made by me) - Open to US only, Items will be shipped in a standard envelope (non-machinable) unless you want to cover shipping. Winner will be picked by random number generator Sunday around 5 PM EST
**Fine Print**
*Payment - PPFF, PPGS**, Venmo, Zelle, BTC, ETH, USDC (PPGS is typically reserved for solid feedback members)
*Shipping Via USPS - Small Priority Flat Rate $9
*Close Up Images - Pieces are hand made individually and therefore each item looks slightly different. Unless noted, the up close videos are stock videos and not a video of the actual item you will receive. Damaged items will be noted and individual videos would be shown.
*Pricing Disclaimer - Pricing for each item is based on the weight of that item in silver, but it is also based on the amount of time it takes me (its maker) to make it. That means there is a reason each item is priced as it is. That being said, I am open to working out any deals I can on orders of multiple items, it may not be much but I will do what I can.
*Prices are subject to change at any time due to market fluctuations and in the event of a listing error or update.

Proper packing is the only real insurance we have. Anyone that has received a package from me would attest to the thoroughness of my packaging. Tracking numbers are sent after I get items scanned at the PO. Notes on shipping from two buyers "best f'ing packaging I've ever seen as well! " and "Package arrived, took about 10 minutes to open."

June 16th at 2:00 PM (PDT) - Moshpit Madness - Blitz with New Warriors
Break out the bug repellant, because Helicarriers are about to have a severe bug problem in the form of the new Infestation team! This scrappy black ops squad will specialize in Alliance War Defense and consist of newcomer Spider-Man (Big Time) and S.T.R.I.K.E. veterans Ant-Man, Black Widow, Swarm, and Yellowjacket – all of whom will receive upgrades for their new role. Infestation will be a top Defensive team and bringing anything less than a top Offensive squad like Knowhere will result in your forces getting squashed. So beware, Commander! Let's meet the new face (mask?) of the Infestation team…
After losing his job as a photographer, Peter Parker took on a new role as a research scientist and engineer at Horizon Labs. There, he developed a new Spider-Man suit with upgraded tech, including a green camo mode that made him invisible to visual and audio means and a red anti-sound mode. Spider-Man utilized the updated suit to defeat the Hobgoblin and a new villain named Massacre, who was terrorizing the city.
Spider-Man (Big Time) swings onto the new Infestation team as a big-time Controller with high Health and Focus stats. He's the lynchpin of the team and is extremely powerful on War Defense. When he's with his full Infestation team, Spider-Man (Big Time) gains a Charged, which grants his Ultimate Ability a myriad of battle-changing effects, including applying 2 turns of Disrupted, Trauma, and Blind to all enemies, along with flipping all of their positive effects and stealing up to 2 Ability Energy.

With the first run of the Nova Trials complete, we’re excited to announce that another Legendary character is coming later this year. A five-person Knowhere team (including Nova) will be a required trait to unlock that character, so be sure to participate in all the fun events that reward the team’s character shards.
Fury is calling for more training and an increased presence in War and to do that, S.T.R.I.K.E. is rewarding Commanders who crack open Training Orbs and unleash their Forces in War with the high-profile Ninny Nonny Tribute and plenty of Rock Concert Tickets. Flex your Knowhere team to gain more milestone progress and your efforts will gain powerful resources for roster improvements, including T4 Ability Materials and fragments for the Dark Dimension VI Countdown Orb.

S.T.R.I.K.E. is ordering a solo mission separate from the Intergalactic Tour that requires the deployment of your New Warriors into Cosmic Crucible and the utilization of your Iso-8 Campaign Energy.

S.T.R.I.K.E. is also raising the stakes by putting new and very rare Skill Gear Tier 18 Mini-Uniques up for grabs in a Leaderboard for top Commanders.

We’ve seen some questions regarding the long-term availability of the Pride Borders. To clarify, the Pride Borders will only be available to claim from the Inbox in the month of June, but they'll remain in your inventory indefinitely for you to use.
Bring the milestone house down for Korg's Intergalactic Tour with Concert Tickets, fetch more rewards with To Infinity Event Campaign Energy, and power up your Knowhere team with this Free Claim that's available until June 10th at 2:00 PM (PDT):

2023.06.09 23:04 SnooSuggestions9986 All the Tips i can give that helped me to Overcome my OCD without medication.

I will give all the tips I can think of that helped me overcome my OCD hope these help you best of luck I know you can beat it!!!!
Acceptance: Embrace acceptance as your life philosophy. Accept the circumstances you are in, and then strive to change them. Remember, what you resist persists.

Belief System: Your belief system holds great importance. If you truly believe you can accomplish something, you will have the power to do so. Conversely, if you don't believe in your ability to overcome OCD, you will struggle. Refrain from giving OCD power over you. Consider the story of David and Goliath by Doe Dispanza, which references a book he read, emphasizing the impact of belief.

Reaction: Learn how not to react impulsively to inner and outer events. Find a balance between reacting and non-reacting. For example, when it comes to OCD triggers, practice not reacting immediately. However, it is also essential to express and process your emotions, rather than bottling them up.

Understanding Your Mind and Body:

A) Emotions: Treat your emotions like children (they need attention), observing them as they arise. Paying attention to your anxiety from the moment it starts can help it dissipate faster. For instance, noticing your anger promptly enables you to control it and avoid reactive behavior.

B) Thoughts: As mentioned earlier, you possess the power to choose whether to believe a thought or disregard it. Act as the gatekeeper of your mind, allowing thoughts that benefit your well-being. Recognize that your mind is influenced by the impressions you have gained from your surroundings. It constantly recycles what it knows and what it has experienced through your senses. your mind doesn't recognize good from bad its only currency is attention the more you give something attention the more your mind will see it as useful resulting in repetition and the more you ignore it your mind will see it as useless information.

The Art of Observation: Cultivate the skill of being observant in your inner experiences and outer circumstances. Seek to understand why things happen, as this leads to greater insight. For example, consider the hunger example when you get hungry your mind will start thinking about food. observing how your mind behaves under different conditions.

Physical Training: Recognize the strong connection between your mind and body. Engage in physical exercise to strengthen your body, knowing that it positively impacts your mental well-being.

Finding Happiness: Each person has a unique source of happiness. Reflect on what truly makes you happy. While going out, drinking, and spending time with friends may bring joy temporarily, they are not sustainable sources of happiness. These are experiences of joy, often mistaken for true happiness. Instead, find an infinite source of happiness within yourself. You are the generator of happiness, the factory producing it. Additionally, happiness is a combination of habit and belief systems. When you smile, your mind releases mood-enhancing chemicals. I recommend closing your eyes, smiling, and focusing your attention on your smile. This exercise will train your body to smile naturally, leading to spontaneous smiles over time.

Mental Models: Build a mental model that supports your journey. Your words and thoughts have a powerful influence, similar to hypnosis. The more you repeat and genuinely believe positive statements, the more they manifest in reality. For example, you could start your day with affirmations like "I am healthy, I am a fighter, I am blessed."

Gratitude: Embrace gratitude as a transformative practice in your life. The more you cultivate gratitude, the easier your life becomes. Express appreciation for the positive aspects of your life, as it brings numerous mental and physical benefits to your well-being.

Disregard Subconscious Thoughts: Simply ignore all thoughts originating from your subconscious mind. Why should you give them attention? It's akin to how we don't pay attention to our heartbeats when they're normal, but only notice them when they become irregular. Apply this principle to your thoughts and consciously choose to disregard and not engage with any thoughts generated by your subconscious. By doing so, you can free yourself from unnecessary mental clutter and focus on thoughts that align with your well-being and goals.

2023.06.09 23:03 NEOCryptoMeister Investing in a producing oil lease advise

Recently I've been trying to diversify my investments ranging from laundromats to an oil less.
I am looking at purchasing a full or fractional interest of an oil lease. If I am not mistaken, still very new to this. If anyone has any knowledge on the type of profit that could be generated, that would be greatly appreciated!
Primary well 5400 vertical oil well producing 25-70 barrels daily. It’s a 76% net revenue lease held by production for as long as production continues. Recoverable reserves 230,000 barrels. Is this a good investment for $25k?

How I Went From $0 to Millionaire & Beyond With Real Estate Investing

What if you could take all my real estate knowledge and download it into your mind — for you to use and for you to profit from?

That’s why I created this program! It’s the closest way I could do that! Elon’s Neuralink isn’t out yet, so I gotta do it this way.
For those who don’t know… I was just a regular guy working at Jamba Juice who has owned $20 million in real estate.
Real estate has changed my life.
Not many people realize that real estate investing is why I had a net worth in the millions even before I even started making any real money on YouTube.
And before you think “ahh, I don’t think I have the cash right now to build my real estate portfolio”
…remember, I started from scratch.
🔰 I came from a broken, immigrant home with divorced parents.
🔰 I left home and stepped into the world with no money.
🔰 I worked several jobs (like Jamba Juice) that left me unhappy and unfulfilled.
🔰 I saved what I could and invested every penny.
🔰 My net worth was in the millions before any significant “YouTube money”
I got into my first property at 19 and it instantly boosted my net worth by around $100,000. This was when I only had about $9,000 in the bank.
More on how I did that later…
Maybe right now investing in real estate feels out of reach.
You might be in a paycheck-to-paycheck loop.
I actually recommend that the first $20k you have you use towards real estate. Not trying to do stock options first which many of you are doing…
Read that again…
Even if your credit isn’t perfect yet, even if you have to take a higher rate, or pay mortgage insurance… you need to figure out how to get into real estate now.
This way, you can build a base where you’re controlling hundreds of thousands of dollars of net worth.
Or maybe you’re already well on your way to growing your real estate investments, but you want to learn ways to accelerate them and build more passive income?
Would it be nice if…
You could use the real estate strategies that have helped me grow my wealth even if you:
✅ Have ZERO Investing Experience.
✅ Have SOME Investing Experience.
✅ You’re Looking for Passive Income and Cashflow.
✅ You’re Looking for a Side-Hustle to Build Wealth.
✅ You’re Hunting for Deals (Including wholesaling topics!).
✅ You’re Licensed OR NOT.
✅ You Speak English (Useful Globally / Internationally).
Or you are…
✅ A Brand-New Investor ($0 Net Worth) — You’ll get my step-by-step guide.
✅ A Somewhat Experienced Investor ($25,000-250,000 Net Worth).
✅ An Experienced Investor ($250,000+ Net Worth).
✅ ALSO this is extremely useful for: Agents, brokers, lenders, CPAs, & industry members
(Your clients expect you know this; why not make it easy for you to make sure you do?)
You’ll be able to benefit from the 360+ lifetime-access lectures no matter where you are in your journey with real estate investing.
If you know me and my story, you know that I was a guy working at Jamba Juice who now has over $20 million in real estate.
I was also a busboy cleaning off plates of hamburgers at Red Robin…
When I became an adult, I stepped out into the world with pretty much zero money.
I started with nothing and have built a net worth that to me thinking about how far I’ve come – is pretty crazy.
I work now, not because I have to. I do it because I’m passionate about helping others learn from my mistakes and gain any perspectives I’ve found on my journey.
When I was making those tasty drinks for thirsty customers at Jamba Juice, I secretly plotted my escape.
I grew my skills, learned a ton, and started investing anything I could.
Even before my YouTube income, I grew my net worth into the millions through some hard work and good financial decision-making.
It’s been a while now that I could have retired and moved somewhere else with maybe a Mediterranean climate like the French Riviera or something… but I love teaching this stuff.
If I had to tell you one thing about growing your net worth, it would be this: START NOW…
Don’t wait any longer to learn the principles that can help you grow your income, investments, and wealth.
Start today.
You need to get on the exponential net worth curve as soon as possible. The sooner you start, the better.
You do not want to wait on this.
So if you’re wondering…
“If I wanted to start now, where would I even begin, or what would I do next?”
Well, that’s why I created this course…
To help you grow your net worth with the power of Real Estate Investing.
I break everything down for you in an organized, easy-to-understand way.
This program is about the psychology needed to succeed as a Millionaire investor for life, the art of negotiation and deal-making, and how to make passive income and cash flow.
I want everyone who goes through this program to walk away feeling confident about real estate investing, dealing with sellers and buyers, inspections, renovations, hacks and pitfalls, investing methods, tax strategies and so much more.
We’ll talk about shopping for real estate, valuations, and financing.
We’ll cover the exact steps to START today, whether you’re starting with $0 or with $1,000,000+.
If you’re already making good money, this course will help you get to that next level of wealth faster.
Maybe you even want to learn how to build generational wealth where your children’s children will benefit from your investments.
If any of this is interesting, then this course is for you.
This course will be wide-ranging covering topics for all investors including beginner, intermediate, & advanced investing topics.
  • New investors will learn ground-up knowledge from how to start AT ANY AGE (we’ll have various start points and segments to share exactly recommended courses for starting at various ages).
  • Advanced investors may benefit from a new perspective on topics they thought they were already experts on (such as negotiations, dealing with tenants and contractors, etc.).
  • About 25 to 30% of our students are international students. My aim is to teach fundamentals and principles that are applicable globally.Certainly, we might use specific examples to the United States, but if you understand the concepts, you will be able to apply them globally. This is why we say we like to teach rather than give you some cheat sheets simply to copy. People who learn this information should be able to adapt it to their local region within 20 to 30 minutes of talking to a local lender or agent.
Crucial Economic Principles for a Strong Foundation in Real Estate.
✅ The Mentality of a Millionaire Investor.
✅ How To Start From $0, or $20k, or $150k, or $500k
✅ Special Notes for investing at 19 vs. 30 vs. 50+ years old
✅ Different Investing methods (AirBnBs, Flips, Wholesaling, and more)
✅ Finding Deals, Financing, Negotiation and Closing
✳️ New Lectures are Regularly Added (Example: Market trends or law changes).
And the goal of all this is to do it while working less, making more passive income, and finally getting onto the path to retiring early.
“You want to get to the point of getting your money to work for you as soon as you can… instead of the other way around.”
If you have little to no investments and don’t think you have the money to start now, but you really want to build your net worth… then don’t wait.
There’s no such thing as too early with this.
I know real estate can be scary.
We’ll cover everything you need to know to get on the right path and have the confidence to make the right financial decisions even if you don’t have faith in your current knowledge and skills.
And, if you are already making a high income and have investments, then you’re ahead of the game.
This course will help you get to that next level faster and can help you accelerate your net worth to reach your financial goals sooner.
This is my real life, the advice I’ve gleaned from many, the actions I’ve taken, the painful experiences and losses I’ve suffered, and the big financial wins I’ve experienced.
Also, if you’re wondering,
“But Kevin, is now a good time to invest?”
The training in this course is important no matter what the economic conditions are.
Even if the market is super heated, there are always deals to be found.
It’s about knowing where to look and what to look for.

2023.06.09 22:58 tulsa360 Pre-All Might era heroes (Part 1)

In canon we get very little about the heroes that were part of, or prior to All Might’s generation. As such I put together these profiles. Feel free to either give feedback or contribute your own profile.
The format is:
Hero Rank
Hero Type
Name: Baku “Hero of Dreams”
Quirk: Rhino
Rhino granted the user enhanced strength and durability. Additionally, Baku could use bits of his horns growth to grant people control of their faculties (dampening intense fear, anger, ect)
Hero Rank: Max 1, Average 12, Minimum 94
Hero Type: Baku was one of the most prominent and early mutant advocate heroes. He was by far the highest ranked and most visible mutant type hero of his time. During that era the Creature Rejection Clan were far more powerful and influential, as such he faced intense discrimination.
Fate: Building collapsed on him, he used his body to create a hollow in the rubble. Rebar impaled him in nine places and concrete crushed two of his limbs. Died three hours before rescuers dug out the 13 civilians he saved. He died five years after All Might’s debut in Japan and was 36 years old.
Name: Amber Bulwark “The Defending Hero”
Quirk: Buckler
Bucker allowed Golden Bulwark to summon two shimmering red-gold bucklers in her fists. Each summoned buckler couldn't leave her hand, but they did provide a minor repelling force.
Hero Rank: Max 7, Average 19, Minimum 199
Hero Type: She was a reliable hero, a defender of the innocent, and humble to boot. Perhaps a bit too humble, she was a people pleaser who was motivated by public admiration and needed positive reinforcement.
Fate: She was hit into a building which snapped her spine. She attended physiotherapy and took on loans to get treatment from expensive quirk aided doctors. Unfortunately, she was unable to meet the demands needed to retain her license that year. In despair she picked a fight with an A class villain and died in the fight. She was 31 and died 14 years after All Might's debut.
Name: Goldstar “The Glittering Hero”
Quirk: Glory
Glory grants the user enhanced strength proportional to the number of in person-observers.
Hero Rank: Max of 1, Average 8, Minimum of 98
Hero Style: He was rather superficial and someone who liked attention for more than just the effects of his quirk. He took on a record number of brand endorsements which at the time was very unusual. Nevertheless, he was an admirable hero who saved, at minimum, thousands of lives.
Fate: A villain found out about his weakness and snuck into his house while he was asleep and tried to slit his throat. Unfortunately for the villain, Goldstar had truly earned his place at the top and put up a fight. Despite not being much stronger than a regular person, Goldstar made sure that neither of them walked out of that building alive. This happened three years after All Might's debut and he was 44.
Name: Freddy Quicksilver
Quirk: Hermes
Hermes granted him enhanced speed. The faster he ran the more damage to the ground he did.
Hero Rank: Max 1, Average 16, Minimum 81
Hero Style: He was a hero that wanted to raise people's spirits. To give them a sense of belonging no matter whether they fit into the traditional roles of society or didn’t. He was also the mentor to His Purple Highness.
Fate: Unfortunately, he had an encounter with All for One, who stole his quirk and killed him. This was 15 years after All Might's debut, and he was 45.
Name: Epoch “The Foresight Hero”
Quirk: Hourglass
Hourglass allows the user to see up to a minute into a potential future. What is experienced in that vision is whatever would happen without any interference. However long is looked into the future is half the time the quirk is then on cooldown.
Hero Rank: Max 7, Average 112, Minimum 194
Hero Style: Debuting the same year as All Might, Epoch was a far more understated hero. His style is a mix of rescue hero work and investigation. He works with other heroes in disaster zones giving them early warning of changes in the situation. Nowadays he has taken a more backseat role in his agency.
Fate: He’s still in operation. Far less active than in his youth, the many years of heroism have taken their toll, leaving him with chronic pain. He’s taken on a sidekick named Needle.
Name: Ingenium/Turbo “The High Speed Hero”
Quirk: Engine
Engine grows a pair of engines in the hero's shoulders. As long as he’s drunk enough apple juice, these engines grant him enhanced strength and speed.
Hero Rank: Max 11, Average 28, Minimum 100
Hero Style: Part of the tail end of the first generation of official heroes, Ingenium found it to be a matter of more than just honor to follow the rules, but instead a matter of survival. He raised his kids with these same ideals. He officially passed down the name of Ingenium to his son 9 years after All Might’s debut.
Fate: He fully retired from the family’s agency when he reached the age of 70.
Name: Kal-El
Quirk: Icy Veins
Icy Veins grants Kal-El resistance to heat and cold, thermal vision, and frost breath.
Hero Rank: Max 1, Average 23, Minimum 89
Hero Style: Primarily a rescue hero, Kal-El has transferred to even more of an investigator in his later years. The combat focused jobs he tends to leave to his niece.
Fate: Despite being in his early sixties he’s still working at his agency. He has several sidekicks including his niece Zor-El, his son Kon-El, and many employees.

2023.06.09 22:56 Joadzilla Here are the 37 charges against Trump and what they mean

Here are the 37 charges against Trump and what they mean
A court on Friday unsealed the federal indictment against Donald Trump and an aide over classified documents found at his Mar-a-Lago home and the men’s alleged efforts to keep the government from finding the materials. Here’s what we know about the charges against the former president, brought by special counsel Jack Smith.

How many charges does Trump face?

Trump is accused of violating seven federal laws but faces 37 separate charges. That is because each classified document he is accused of holding on to illegally is charged in a separate count, and his alleged efforts to hide classified information from federal investigators is charged in several ways. His longtime aide Walt Nauta faces six charges, all but five of which are also lodged against Trump.

What are the charges against Trump?

Espionage Act/unauthorized retention of national defense information: Trump is charged with 31 counts of violating a part of the Espionage Act that bars willful retention of national defense information by someone not authorized to have it. Such information is defined as “any document, writing, code book, signal book, sketch, photograph, photographic negative, blueprint, plan, map, model, instrument, appliance, or note relating to the national defense, or information relating to the national defense which information the possessor has reason to believe could be used to the injury of the United States or to the advantage of any foreign nation.” Technically, that information does not have to be classified, but in practice the law is almost exclusively used to prosecute retention of classified material. In Trump’s case, prosecutors say that all but one of the 31 documents he is charged with illegally retaining were marked as classified at the “secret” or “top secret” level. The unmarked document concerned “military contingency planning,” according to the indictment.
A conviction does not require any evidence of a desire to disseminate the classified information; having it in an unauthorized location is enough. But the crime requires a “willful” mishandling of material “the possessor has reason to believe could be used to the injury of the United States or to the advantage of any foreign nation.” Charges are generally not brought without some aggravating factor making clear the retention was not accidental — such as evidence of intent to share the information, signs of disloyalty to the U.S. government, or simply the volume of documents taken.
Unlike other government employees, the president does not go through a security clearance process that includes a pledge to follow classification rules. But Trump received requests from the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) and subpoenas from the Justice Department indicating that the documents in question were classified and needed to be returned to the U.S. government. Prosecutors say he instead sought to hide them from federal investigators. And while the president can declassify most information, there is a process for doing so. According to the indictment, Trump twice showed classified information to others, once while saying that the document was still classified and lamenting that he no longer had the power to declassify it.
Conspiracy to obstruct justice: Trump is charged with one count of conspiring with Nauta to hide classified material from federal investigators, by lying to the FBI about what was found at Mar-a-Lago and moving boxes of documents out of a storage room before agents searched the home. Trump specifically is accused of suggesting that one of his attorneys lie to the FBI and help hide or destroy documents.
Tampering with grand jury evidence: Trump and Nauta face two counts of trying to keep evidence out of grand jurors’ hands: one count of withholding the classified documents and one of corruptly concealing them. As part of those charges, Trump is accused of trying to persuade one of his attorneys to help conceal the documents, while Nauta is accused of hiding the evidence by moving the boxes of classified documents.
Concealing evidence in a federal investigation: For the same alleged conduct of hiding the classified information at Mar-a-Lago, Trump and Nauta separately face one count of concealing evidence with the intent to obstruct an FBI investigation.
False statements: Both Trump and Nauta together face one count of scheming to making false statements for allegedly hiding from the FBI and the grand jury that the former president still had classified documents in his possession. Trump faces a separate count for causing his attorney to falsely claim in June 2022 that all classified documents in the former president’s possession had been handed over in response to a subpoena, according to the indictment. Nauta alone is accused of lying to the FBI by falsely claiming that he had nothing to do with moving any boxes.

What possible penalties does Trump face?

The maximum punishment for each count of unlawful retention of national defense information is 10 years in prison. Conspiracy to obstruct justice, tampering with grand jury evidence, and concealing evidence in a federal investigation all carry punishments of up to 20 years. Each false statement charge is punishable by up to five years in prison.
If Trump was convicted on all charges, the sentences could run consecutively, amounting to hundreds of years in prison. But federal defendants are rarely given the maximum possible punishment. He does not face any mandatory minimum sentences.
Sentences in unlawful retention cases vary widely, depending in part on how sensitive the material is, how much of it there is, how long the person held on to it and his or her cooperation with investigators. A Defense Department employee in Manila who took home a small amount of secret-level information to work on a classified thesis project served only three months behind bars. Kenneth Wayne Ford Jr., who was found guilty at trial of bringing home national defense information after leaving the National Security Agency and lying about the case, received a six-year sentence. A former NSA contractor who over two decades amassed a huge trove of highly sensitive material, including hacking tools and details of overseas operations, was sentenced to nine years in prison. A Navy sailor who took pictures of classified areas of a nuclear-powered submarine and then destroyed the evidence was sentenced to a year in prison for retention and obstruction; Trump later pardoned him.
Retired Gen. David H. Petraeus was given probation after pleading guilty to sharing classified information with his biographer. At the time, the crime of mishandling classified information — as opposed to national defense information — was a misdemeanor with a maximum punishment of a year behind bars. It became a felony during Trump’s presidency.

What other criminal charges does Trump face?

Trump is charged in New York State Court with unrelated crimes for conduct that predates his presidency. He is accused of falsifying business records to hide payments during the 2016 campaign made to an adult-film star to keep her from saying publicly that she had an affair with Trump.
Trump is also under investigation by a state prosecutor in Georgia, who is looking at his efforts to overturn President Biden’s 2020 victory in that state. Smith is also investigating Trump’s attempts to stay in office after losing the presidential election, including his pressure on officials in battleground states and fundraising off false claims of election fraud.

Has Trump responded to the charges?

The former president described himself as “an innocent man” being treated unfairly in comparison with Biden. Classified documents from the Obama administration were discovered in Biden’s Delaware home late last year by lawyers cleaning out his home office. Biden’s attorneys turned those documents over to NARA, and the president gave the Justice Department permission to search the home, as well as his beach house and think tank office. The White House has said that only “a small number” of documents from Biden’s vice-presidential tenure were found. A special counsel has been appointed to oversee that investigation.

2023.06.09 22:55 fitterniti TheRiseofSkywalker Rewrite

TL;DR: Should be titled rewriting the whole new trilogy. Basically felt I could do a better narrative job of the trilogy after watching a few in depth critiques on YouTube. Focus was on doing justice to new characters while giving. Epic send-offs to Legacy characters. With a healthy dose of action and wtf moments sprinkled in.
Huge Star Wars Fan as that's one of my fondest memories of my late Grandfather. That and Godzilla. We never missed a showing of any of the films. I wish he were here to watch the new trilogy with me but given how disjointed and incoherent the new films turned out to be, I'm glad he's happy in heaven. Anyhoo. Honestly, I don't think we need to even rewrite these movies too much because they had all the ingredients to begin with. However, here's my painstakingly thought out Re-Write. This took a good part of two hours to write folks. Off the top of my head on a Friday midnight with bare minimum effort. I cannot fathom how a billion dollar studio couldn't afford writers who did not even understand basic setup and payoff, consequences to actions and building suspense and grand setpieces. What an incredibly wasted opportunity. Let me know what you think of my re-write of the plot. Aight. I'm a go cool off my aching fingers in some ice now while you peruse my rambling poorly structured sentences. 😂
PART ONE: This remains largely the same. But Rey and Finn fall hard for each other eventually. Kylo is split between the dark and light and genuinely believes the Jedi were the ones in the wrong and wants to bring about balance by destroying both the Jedi and the Sith. Snoke is a major influence. Let him be present and not just a shadow. Good vs Evil yada yada. Kylo hesitates on the bridge scene with Han but something flashes in his mind and makes him grasp a Ruby bracelet on his wrist. Memories of a past he had suppressed. Han notices the turmoil in his son and says "Ben. . ". As he reaches out to embrace his son, the turbulent memories trigger the saber to ignite, killing Han Solo. Kylo accepts his journey to the darkness and gets shot by Chewie. Rey and Kylo stand-off near the end. Except Rey doesn't nearly win. Finn loses a leg or arm in his blinded rage for Kylo killing Han Solo. Kylo is freakishly strong. Rey and Finn are saved by the skin of their teeth as Poe saves their asses instead of some natural calamity. This cements their friendship further. Luke's history is detailed. How he retired. Blah blah. Rey then goes and finds Luke. The end. Oh and btw, Finn has a better relationship with Poe and deeper bond with Han Solo while Rey gravitates intensely towards Leia and is good friends with Poe (but only after Poe's skepticism that she can be a Jedi fades near the end of the plot) This will have a solid pay off later.
PART TWO: Luke begrudgingly allows Rey into his personal space. He also doesn't chuck the light saber but takes it back to his hut and begins to dismantle it. Rey fights him and in the tussle he breaks down and confesses about why he quit. The Jedi had to make a terrible choice in the past. To save younglings and mother's in a distant home base or protect the few hundred fighters they had remaining. The Jedi are left in this tough spot when facing the tyranny of the new order - something they presumed was a remnant of the Emperor's reign but in reality, was a slowly rising menace new to this time in the galaxy. Stuck in between a rock and a hard place, they chose wisely not emotionally. Which is what the Jedi are. They're pragmatic. Not the heroes. Kylo was a Jedi master at this time and not a trainee. He couldn't stand by the orders of the Jedi as his friends and padawans were being mercilessly slaughtered. They saved the future but at the cost of the present. Cue heart wrenching scenes of Kylo disobeying the Jedi, breaking off to save the kids etc., while the Jedi stand their ground defending the military locations. Luke chases after Kylo after feeling that the threat has been handled. He reaches the home base to find a Kylo kneeling in the ruins, ashen remains of younglings around and his padawan in his arms. Luke approaches Kylo as he's giving a monologue about how they had to make the tough choice and Kylo is seething in rage. He crushes the bones of the ashen body, his sadness turning to anger while the Ruby bracelet his padawan used to wear is left behind as the only memory of his closest friend in his hands. He blames the Jedi for this tragedy, calls them monsters and as Luke tries to stop him, a battle ensues between them with Luke almost killing him. This cements both of their positions. Luke, withdrawn and head held down, apologizes to Kylo and tells him that he hopes he understands someday. That great sacrifices are needed sometimes. And that you cannot always save Everyone. In fact. It's only the sith that think along those lines. Luke retires. Realising that this time, they've gone too far. The Jedi have paid a price that cannot be justified in the name of the greater good. He quits and exiles himself while Kylo, seeking answers from the dark side is eventually led to Snoke. Po and Finn (with his new arm/leg) go on more buddy adventures replacing the whole Rose animal saving arc. Snoke wants Rey really bad so we keep that arc and Kylo boards Leia's ship instead of flying around to capture Rey and bring her in. Po and Finn aren't on board so it's free game for Kylo. A standoff ensues with a big fight which ends with Kylo raging about and losing control of his force powers. Blowing everyone in the room out into space. . the shields come on but not fully and Rey is stuck near the edge holding on to Leia with her dear life stopping her from flying off into space. Kylo is climbing up towards Rey and about to put the restraints to capture her. That's when he notices Leia and she looks him in the eyes. She let's go to Rey's horror and as Kylo strikes down in anguish, Rey dodges but he's too fast and slaps on the restraints. Kylo immediately jumps through into space after his mom while calling in ships to rescue them and bring Rey in. Cue scene like the Guardians of the Galaxy Part Two where Quill fails to save Yondu at the end. Leia uses her hidden force powers: NOT to shield herself and Marry Poppins her way into the ship. But to save her beloved son, despite everything. Kylo sheds tears breaking down as he holds his mother, feeling her last breaths through the force. He mutters "Not you. . Not you too". . She whispers "There's still some good in you. . And I see it in her too. . Ben. . Save her, she's . ... .." . . Silence. . as Leia's hand freezes while caressing Kylo's face and she dies. Kylo gets saved by the troopers and they depart to Snoke's lair, letting Leia's body float away into the deep dark nothingness of space. Entombed forever. Rey is tortured by a Kylo who is slowly losing his cool but she resists and puts up a force fight against his mind. Both end up in Snoke's room and the SAME shenanigans ensue. Snoke senses the confusion in Kylo and goes about treating him like a child. Snoke CHIDING Kylo and punishing him now makes more sense. While Rey tries her best to be the good guy and take on Snoke to only be mocked and thrown about. Snoke starts killing the resistance ships in space one by one. His minions have also captured a few of the rebels and brings them to knee in front of them - shock and awe as part of the folks kneeling are Finn and Poe. Here comes a major change and I feel Oscar Isaac would personally love this one. Poe gets a brutal ass fucking death with limb dismemberment etc. while everyone else tries to stop it but gets fucked up by Snoke and his incredible powers. Similar to that Negan scene from The Walking Dead and also makes more sense here as Poe's death in Part One as per Disney's initial plans would've been pointless (insufficient character growth to justify a meaningful death) Even Kylo is not cool with this and tries to intervene because this is too violent and too much but gets ragdolled like a bitch. Snoke even claims that HE was the one who put that distractiom in Kylo's memory, making him pull the trigger on the saber that killed Han. He gave Kylo the perfect memory at the perfect time to give him that one push over the edge. He influenced Kylo's rage, blinding him and making him take his own father's life. Snoke jeers and Kylo and Rey, claiming they're far more pathetic than he thought and they're unworthy of his teachings and presence. Poe is almost done for but being the badass that he is, musters what little strength he has to wink to Rey as she force pushes the blaster into his hands. Born out of pure fucking desperation to save his friends, Poe focuses his last ounce of strength and shoots Snoke straight in the face, blinding him in one eye. Buying just enough time for both Kylo and Rey to reach for the sabers, however, Rey gets hers first and absolutely wrecks Snoke as Finn rushes to Poe Dameron, holding him as he breathes his last. Kylo fends off an entire room of the Red guys 1v6. Rey vs Snoke is going on. Rey taps into the dark side. Juices up. Chops up Snoke and blows him up and as he's dying she still keeps going apeshit on him while Kylo has to step in and restrain her. Even he has a difficult time but manages to reign her in. Snoke dies. So does Poe. Kylo apologizes, saying this isn't how he envisioned things. As he's about to walk off, a sinister voice rises from the darkness beyond Snoke's corpse. Laughter echoing in the chambers as Snoke's remains, a lifelesss mangled corpse floats into the air with electricity arcing from his fingers and eyes. . And the ICONIC DIALOGUE is whispered in a booming growl "Your feeble skills are no match for the power of the dark side". . It's fucking Palpatine as a floaty ghosty mother frocker, grinning from ear to ear while Snoke's corpse collapses to the floor and this OMINOUS DEATH looking bastard rises into full frame. . movie ends. . Cut to black 🙄 Palpatine was the one controlling Snoke all along and he somehow survived the atomization and explosions. However, at least here, he is in Ethereal form and not Corporeal so it's easier to digest the fact that a Sith so fricking hungry with immortality and power would manage to continue his existence. . somehow. It's palatable. It's also palpable. It's also. . Wait for it. . Palpa-TINE. . Badum Dish. . Drumroll please. . I got puns for days 🤣
PART THREE: Movie starts off like The Two Towers. Zooming shots throughout Snoke's Palace while the sound bytes of the Part Two's climax play through with camera panning into the Throne room as the final moments of Part two play out all over again. Sheer panic and dread has set in. Poe is gone. Snoke is but a puppet in the true sense. Emperor looms over Rey, Finn and a befuddled Kylo who's now questioning everything he ever fought for. Emperor plays with them like they're little ants, frying them, flinging them and ripping off Finn's fake (arm/leg). He's toying with them and torturing them. And just as he's about to do finish them, the massive ass heavy doors to the throne room are flung apart like paper. Standing in the corridor backlit by green is a cloaked figure that whispers "I thought I threw you into the abyss". . As the lightsaber ignites in Glorious Green and the green light cascades onto an incredibly PISSSED OFF Luke Skywalker. "It can't be. You were in exile!" mutters a grumpy Emperor. A ridiculously immense "feat of strength" battle ensues similar to that of Dumbledore vs Voldemort. Both parties pulling out force powers out of their ass in magnitudes that are ripping the ships internals to shreds and endangering everyone else. It becomes a stalemate and they escape with their lives. And now, the "Somehow Palpatine returned" dialogue makes sense, especially when it comes from LUKE's mouth and not frickin Meriadoc Brandybuck. Luke explains to everyone else how Palpatine was an ancient evil he once fought and destroyed with his father Anakin. Everyone's shitting bricks because the Emperor clearly never died in the true sense of the word and has remained busy in the shadows as Snoke, rebuilding his empire, pulling all the strings. That's also WHY EVERYTHING LOOKS AND FEELS THE SAME WITH THE VILLAINS. MOTIFS, VEHICLES, DEATH STARS. BECAUSE ITS THE SAME BAD GUY ALL ALONG. 😅 Cue a final desperate adventure where Kylo comes to terms with his failures and how he was being misled all along. Sombre scene between him and Luke. He tells Luke "I don't know what to do. I cannot seek forgiveness. I allowed all this to happen. So many lives. I thought I was doing this for the greater good. For the balance. I knew there would be no coming back from this for me. But others could thrive in a new world". . Luke replies.."The greater good. Some of the worst things in the world were started with the best intentions. The Jedi were noble but they were also human. .and flawed.".... ... "All those lives I've taken .. " says an absolutely shattered Kylo Ren.. ..Luke replies. . "Lives that can never be brought back. But you can pay for theirs with the life you own now..We can put an end to it. It's not too late to see it through to the end. .".. ..Luke locks eyes with Kylo "Your mother and father loved you more than anything Ben. As do I". . Luke also tells Ben about how his grandfather, Darth Vader chose to be a father in the end and helped destroy the Emperor, eventually dying as Anakin Skywalker instead. This can lead to the scene where Ben breaks the Darth Vader helmet memento to bits and sheds his own helmet too. Tearjerker scene can follow where Ben Solo has a Skype call with mom and dad force ghosts who also give a cryptic message that he should talk to Luke because Luke has something incredibly important to tell him) - instead of the dumb scene with Han where he's a "memory"?. . Self forgiveness FTW? 😅 Rey comes to terms with Luke's warning about giving in to the dark side and TRAINS HARDER while Finn baby takes over Poe's mantle and fills in the Ace Pilot spot, wearing Poe Dameron's jacket and colors. Macguffin adventure with Luke Skywalker ensues.
THE GRAND FINALE. Finn leads the way to fight in space and stop the death destroyers. Rey, Ben and Luke go to the ground game to finish the emperor, once and for all. While enroute, Luke sits the kids down and tells them why The Emperor wanted both of them and their powers. They're brother and sister, born as a dyad, a strong bond in the force that was so United, it posed a threat to the fabric of the force itself. This happens once every few generations and they had to separate them during childhood once they figured out that Snoke had sent assassins to capture them. This also makes INCREDIBLE SENSE as to why Han and Leia could not be seen together and why Rey had been hidden away on a desert planet somewhere. Rey's parent is a LITERAL SKYWALKER. Someone she's been talking to all this time and only now finds out that it's her actual mom. Fuck me in the heartstrings. They both break down, mend their differences and get ready for the final fight. The Emperor has grown way stronger. The battle does not go easy. Ben's own soldiers, the Knights of Ren are a menace and nearly bring both Rey and Kylo to their knees. Except. Kylo calms himself down and in a moment of PURE CHEER WORTHY AWESOMENESS, he focuses himself to the point where his SPUTTERING LIGHT SABER BECOMES SOLID STATE LIGHT. A true saber but in all of its red glory. The brother sister duo tap into the force and start fighting together, blending their styles instead of doing their own thing while Luke faces off against the Emperor again. The knights are finished eventually but Luke is not winning at all. The Emperor uses some cheap tricks and tries to one shot Kylo and Rey but Luke gets in front of them taking the full brunt of the hit. As Luke is unable to stop the massive force lighting and starts to disintegrate, he looks back at his niece and nephew, smiles and tells them to look into the force, "You will always find us there". . Luke disappears, the Emperor falters, and his force lightning fades for a brief second. And that's all the siblings needed to make full use of Luke Skywalker's noble sacrifice. They attack with everything they have, exchange banter in between and just as the Emperor launches another Salvo of Force Lightning saying "I am ALL the Sith", Ben and Rey cross their sabers together and block the lightning. While they struggle to keep the lightning at bay, all of the force ghosts appear together as a result of the Dyad fusion, supporting them from behind. The force ghosts light sabers materialise into reality and the duo join them to their own sabers and reflect the lightning back to the Emperor, while saying this quote in return "And we are ALL THE JEDI". Emperor destroyed for good now 😤 . . SOMEHOW. . NO. NO SOMEHOW. HE'S DEAD FOR GOOD.
No awkward, out of the blue cringe fucking kiss scene like between Ron & Hermione after killing the Basilisk. All those ReyLo fans can weep in a dustbin. And the Dyad now makes sense. Every legacy character's death makes sense and has meaning. Each death also is in sequence. Han goes first. Leia follows. And Luke is the last to kick the bucket. Emperor's comeback also makes sense. Somewhat. The ending makes even more sense. Kylo (Ben). Rey. Finn. Reunited. They re-build the Resistance. And also teach a new philosophy of Balanced approach. Neither giving in to the dark side. Nor being blinded only by the light side. A new way forward. Led by the Skywalker genes through the combination of an Organa and a Solo in a new temple. Finn and Rey profess love for one another. And the last scene is her burying the force ghost's sabers in the ground until they're needed.
Years pass. Dry af desert planet. Rey and Finn are building their home. Random ass desert camel lady passes by asking "I've not seen you around here". . Rey replies "We're new here", as she looks down at her pregnant tummy and Finn working on their home in the distance. "What's your name, my dear?" asks the dry as a stick camel lady. . "Rey. . " comes a quick reply . . "Rey who?" Asks the annoying dust bag old lady. . "Rey Organa" . . Says Rey in a contemplative low voice. . Taking a look back at Finn, she smiles and says with a slight tremble . . "and that's my husband, Finn Solo".. "Rey Organa and Finn Solo, from the Skywalker Clan" . . Says Rey with Utmost confidence now in her voice.. The screen fades to black on a sunkissed Rey's face as she is now looking into the future, sure of the legacy she wants to carry ahead.
FADE TO BLACK on the Two Suns of Tattooine.

What You Get:

Course #1

Black Friday Bootcamp

This is a short course I created for one of my e-commerce coaching groups. It outlines the high level strategy you need to use to MAXIMIZE sales for BFCM.
I go over everything from how to map out your promo calendar… what emails to send when… exactly when you should START and FINISH your promo(s)… and, most importantly…
… how to STAND OUT and grab attention in an overcrowded inbox, so you can break every sales record.
Once you watch this mini-course, you’re going to be pumping out high-converting BFCM campaigns in no time!
Course #2

Make It Rain Monthly

BFCM/Q4 Planning Call

This is a special “members-only” coaching call I recorded with a handful of my top students to help them prepare their clients’ brands for BFCM success.
I even critique (and edit) a few of my students’ BFCM emails during this call.
You can look over my shoulder and see how I think about constructing these email campaigns and sequences – super valuable!
Course #3

Make It Rain Monthly Issue #8

The Black Friday / Cyber MondayMEGA Issue Part 1

  • My “A-Z” roadmap for creating highly profitable Cyber Week email marketing campaigns.
  • The FIRST email you should send in the month of November, to increase the sales you make from every email you send for the next six weeks (I actually wrote this email for you. You can swipe it verbatim. Just swap in some small details about your business, hit send, and watch the sales start rolling in.)
  • How to map out a three-month promotional calendar in less than 60 minutes. (Plus, how to come up with the topics to send, on which days, to the right subscribers.)
  • What to do (instead of just giving a discount or giving a bonus) that’ll incite a buying frenzy, generate word of mouth buzz, create raving fans, AND could possibly lead to record-breaking sales.
  • A breakdown of a collection of BFCM emails, including some from a sequence that brought in six-figures in one week flat.
Course #4

Make It Rain Monthly Issue #9

The Black Friday / Cyber MondayMEGA Issue Part 2

  • The “Magic Box” Method I used to free up 25 hours of creative time on my calendar, so I could get more work done in less time, with less stress… and more time to myself.
  • The biggest mistake I made as I began growing my team… and how I fixed it so everyone could perform at a higher, more autonomous level.
  • How to finally get clear on what you want in life… and how to go get it.
  • Why trying to be a ‘cool boss’ might hurt your team more than help it.
  • One psychological insight that’ll make selling to ‘people with money’ 10x easier. This works especially well if you’re selling a high-end product/high-ticket service.
  • One software that can cut your weekly call volume down by 70% (or more).
  • The “AC” email promotion that’ll send your Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales through the roof.
  • How to scoop up TONS of sales from people who didn’t buy from your BF/CM campaign.
  • Why giving a discount might actually HURT your sales and turn off a large percentage of your customers.
  • When to use a discount vs other types of offers in your emails (they both work and can both be used strategically… but you’ve gotta do this right.)
  • How to instantly induce an “I’ve gotta spend money with this brand” feeling in your customers… even if they weren’t planning on buying anything five minutes before seeing your email.
  • A breakdown of a six-figure BF/CM email campaign (meaning: we actually ran this for one of my e-commerce clients and generated six-figures in sales with it).
  • A two-word subject line you can use on Black Friday to stick out like a sore thumb and get your subscribers’ attention… even when everyone else is screaming about their sales.
  • The one type of campaign you should run if you feel like offering discounts ‘cheapens’ your brand.
  • How to adapt this campaign for OTHER holidays throughout the year (like Mother’s Day & Father’s Day). I even riffed off a quick email hook you can keep in your back pocket until spring.
Course #5

Make It Rain Monthly Issue #20

The Black Friday / Cyber Monday2021 Gameplan

  • The SMS Sign Up Sequence that helped us grow an SMS list by 1,000+ subscribers while generating $10,000+ in sales.
  • How to make a TON of sales on Thanksgiving… without pissing off everyone on your list. (In fact, people will be giddy with anticipation if you do this promo right.)
  • A psychological trigger you can use in your copy that makes your customers go crazy for your products.
  • Why BFCM21 is going to look very different than years past… and the changes you should make to your strategy to stand out in the inbox (and make a ton of sales).
  • How the smartest marketers and brand owners are adapting to iOS14 and iOS15 (and the big shift you need to make to thrive).
  • Will SMS marketing replace or kill email? My surprising answer on page 3.
  • How to dramatically increase your EHR (effective hourly rate)… so you can increase profits while working less.
  • Insights from an SMS campaign I ran back in 2017 that worked incredibly well… and got people asking us to send them MORE texts (it’s a cool approach you can adapt for your own brand).
  • How to write headlines and subject lines that trigger INSTANT curiosity… that suck your prospects in and DEMAND attention. (Try this with your landing pages and advertorial pages and watch your click-thrus SKYROCKET)
  • The #1 copy mistake I see most copywriters and brand owners make with ALL of their emails, landing pages, ads, video scripts, and more.
  • Fix this one thing and you’ll be amazed at how much better your copy reads and converts.
  • How to get your customers to ‘think past the sale’ and get emotionally attached to your product… so they feel compelled to buy. (Sneaky… but powerful. And yes, totally ethical.)

  • The secret to writing tighter, pithier copy.
  • 3 copy principles for high converting SMS messages.

  • The Ultimate “Trojan Horse” campaign to get your customers primed and ready to buy from you for BFCM.
  • The Triple Threat BFCM campaign calendar you should try this Q4. (Could it triple your sales? Only one way to find out…)
  • What almost EVERYONE gets wrong about Gary Vee’s jab-jab-jab-right hook approach to marketing… and why it might be the smartest tactic to use come this Q4 (and beyond).
  • 5 more SMS list building examples that can get you a TON of new subscribers while making lots of “easy sales” in the process.
  • How to use email to ‘scoop up’ buckets of new buyers… even the people who DON’T buy from you.
  • Are you scared of emailing too often? Check out the tip on page 22 that’ll reduce your complaints and increase your sales.
  • The four core campaigns EVERY brand should be running on a monthly basis… even if you’re not in e-com. (I use this with my own list and it works incredibly well.)
Course #6

Holiday Sale Super Sequence

Want to scoop up even MORE sales during the holidays (without the hassle of figuring out your promo calendar)?
This Holiday Sale Super Sequence is based on campaigns I still run for my agency clients that generate anywhere between $30-$50K — without fail.
Comes with SIX email templates, a quick-start implementation video and super secret bonus.
So if you want to generate massive sales easily every time there’s a holiday… then this training is going to help you make that happen.
This sequence is PERFECT for BFCM… but you can even modify it to run other holiday sales throughout the year.

What You Get:

Program #1

CTC Launches

(to master your launch and funnel sequences)
10X Launches is the first copywriting program fully engineered to speed up the execution and amplify your results of your emails no matter what kind of funnel or launch strategy you’re rolling out.
It’s built not only for best-in-class launch copywriters…
But for coaches, consultants, course creators, and ANYONE who stands to benefit from nailing down their launch and funnel copy faster and with more genuine impact.

2 “Core” Modules

That will initiate you into the “Coaching The Conversion™ method, and how to leverage a new, more empowering definition of “direct response” that opens up the floodgates to greater intimacy, empathy, and conversions.

5 “Launch” Modules

breaking down every single phase of your launch or funnel in full detail (including some you didn’t even know existed). You’ll learn exactly what’s at play during the Segmentation & Confirmation, Pre-Launch, Launch, Sales and Closing phases of your funnel and how to quickly craft the messaging that coaches your prospect into the final conversion in a powerful, non-sleazy way.

25+ Email Templates

None of that BS “plug’n’play” or “swipe and deploy” stuff that shoehorns your message into lifeless boxes that robs it of all life and power.
Instead, you’ll get FULL breakdowns and walkthroughs of the go-to templates I turn to over-and-over again in 6 and 7-figure launch campaigns.
Meaning, you get to craft your OWN high-converting launch emails in about 25 minutes flat and fire them into ConvertKit, ActiveCampaign (or wtv you’re using) while your coffee’s still hot.

Program #2

CTC Sales Pages

(to master your long form sales page)
This is it.
It’s where the best paid copywriters, coaches and course marketers on the planet earn their keep.
It’s where the conversion either happens or it doesn’t. In cold hard numbers that don’t care how many Clif bars you stress-ate in the process.
It’s where the most admired online business owners transform interest, desire, and engagement and into what you actually want: Sales.
So what is “it”?
It’s your long-form sales page.
And the truth is… most copywriters and marketers avoid long-form sales pages like the plague… treating it like a close-talking lepper with coffee breath… instead of the 24/7 salesperson your sales page – that final step in your marketing funnel – should be.
So why do marketers (and even pro-level copywriters) avoid sales pages?
Because writing a long-form sales page is intimidating AF.
It’s the Night King of the Whitewalker army.
It’s the Beef Wellington on Hell’s Kitchen.
It’s the Lord Voldemort of your marketing funnel – aka the funnel asset that shall not be named.
A long-form sales page is where you’ll spend dozens of hours writing THOUSANDS of words that will either confirm your claim as a top player in your space…
Or will tell you with Gordon-Ramsay-esque candor that your marketing wasn’t as good as your business coach told you it was.
There’s real pressure in that.
But there’s even real-er payoff in being able to do it faster – and more profitably – than anyone else in your industry. A payoff that even affords you the right to make up words like real-er
Confronting, yep? Conquerable. Absolutely.
In CTC Sales Pages, you’ll go through the exact process I’ve used to write over twenty 6 and 7-figure sales pages for the likes of Amy Porterfield, Copyhackers, and many more.

Program #3 & #4

Six Figure Emails & Seven Figure Emails

(for even more email conversion badassery)
Welcome to the “Johnnie Walker Blue” of our email template series.
This is the premium blend for more advanced marketing palates.
All pulled straight from my highest-performing launches for industry titans like Amy Porterfield, Todd Herman, Traffic & Funnels, and Copyhackers.
What you’re getting are 13 advanced email templates that you can use in a pinch when you need to write a standalone sales email, a webinar invitation, a post-webinar replay, downsell, or flash sale.
To be clear, these aren’t those sketchy and lifeless “swipe and deploy” templates you may have seen swimming around the shadier parts of the online marketing cesspool.
These are loose, flexible templates that guide you through deep-dive masterclasses teaching you the advanced psychology behind each one.
Meaning, you actually understand WHY they work, and are fully empowered to engineer them to best serve your audience.

Program #5

Minimum Viable Launch 2.0

(to quickly rock profitable and lean email launches)
We’ve taken the single most impactful part of 10x Launches; the part that countless students have credited with producing game-changing ROI in record time…
And given it a fresh-for-2022 facelift.
Not only will you be getting access to a stack of NEW templates that we’ve added to the stack based on repeated tests and real-world results.
But we’ll be offering you the one-click automation uploads to bring the whole sequence straight into your ActiveCampaign to save you and your team about 5+ hours of heavy-duty integration time.

Program #6

Application Funnel Amplifiers

(for creating powerful pre-call enrollment experiences)
Fact: The enrollment experience begins the moment your prospect books a call.
If you mail it in for those 12-72 hours between when they book the call — and show up to it, you’re missing a golden opportunity to begin coaching the necessary transformations.
In this brand new program, you’ll learn how we to consciously engineering your entire application experience to pre-empt objections, create magnetism, and stack the odds in favor of having a successful enrollment conversation
You’ll get practical answers to:
  • When you should be transparent about your pricing BEFORE a sales call
  • How to strategically structure your application questions in a way that actually coaches your pre-customer into your program (yes, the questions are copy)
  • What to put on your booking confirmation page to create incredible momentum and a “point of no return” into your program
  • What tools and systems we use to create a seamless application and booking experience

Program #7

Next-Level Automation & Optimization Stack

(upcoming and ongoing automation tutorials)
As the CTC Membership evolves, our resident Wizard, Philip Powis will be actively adding a library of importable one-click automations (into ActiveCampaign), leveraged software playbooks, and a running list of the most advanced (and cost effective) tools and systems that he recommends for fast-scaling course and coaching businesses.

2023.06.09 22:52 Orlando_Circlejerk Quick questions regarding the orlando API blackout

I would like to apologize in advance, I’m a newer redditor and brand new to this incoming blackout and super anxious about it.
Many subreddits will be going dark in petition of the API pricing policy changes, and some apps have stated they will shut down altogether on June 30th. While I am in agreement with this protest since our voices need to be heard amongst this world of greedy corporations, I do have my concerns. This is my first time doing anything like this. What is the general protocol when something like this happens? Is there anyone who is more experienced with these blackouts able to reach out and guide me on what to prepare when these subreddits that I frequent go down? I am extremely worried and can hardly sleep at night. I’m only getting one, maybe two hours of sleep if I’m lucky. My performance at work is taking a drastic hit and because of the deficiency of sleep, I have constant mood swings. I don’t qualify for insurance for healthcare so I can’t exactly visit my local primary physician for help. All of my income goes to my increased rent and inflated food prices. The start of this month has already been rough for me. I’ve lost my hat, had to replace my worn-down shoes and my apple smart watch broke. This API blackout is just another issue added to my stress. Can any locals show me the ropes and help calm my nerves? Everywhere I go, I use reddit. My livelihood depends on it. I am shaking, getting light headed, and sweating myself as I’m typing this.
I’ve been hearing more and more reports of people leaving reddit altogether. They will be deleting all of their comments and posts before closing their accounts. Should I screenshot my favorite posts and put together a printed photo album when I want to go back to revisit some things?
I am mainly looking for information if anyone has advice on what to prep ahead of this blackout. We will not have any access to news, issues and events happening in our city when reddit goes dark. I imagine that traffic will be even worse than it already is because people will no longer be at home, on reddit. Combining that with speeders, slow people on the left lane, vehicles without their lights on in the rain and tailgaters.
Before you all brigade me for being a moron by asking what to prep and to “google it”, it was the first thing I did and I have some notes on hand. Just looking for the veterans to provide their wisdom and insight. Please stop the hate and be respectful. Reddit IS the front page of the internet.
I already have a few essentials such as a yearlong subscription to my local newspaper, bottled water that is not Zephyrhills or nestle, toilet paper, canned goods, portable AM/FM radio, an OLED Nintendo Switch™ with BOTW/TOTK including a battery recharge pack, candles, lenovo legion gaming pc for Diablo IV, lighters, tarp, sandbags, generator and most importantly, some pubsubs but there is no telling what will really happen until you actually experience it. Should I withdraw some cash on hand? How much? What will my reddit coins be worth? I made a regretful mistake recently of purchasing a very expensive reddit avatar nft as well and can’t refund it. I have some memes already printed out (majesty building mostly) and some printouts to simulate new posts like inadequate driving, traffic, i-4, what internet provider, BEST pizza/burgers/wings, epass or sunpass, hidden gems in Orlando, going to the theme parks will it rain, police/helicopter activity anyone know what is going on?
Discord is not an option for me. I’ve tried using discord and their pro nitro version but it isn’t the same as reddit. There are no orange upvote arrows, or karma and you have to jump through many loopholes to unlock different channels that I don’t have the mental capacity to learn. I joined the local gaming one and some user named rat mother personally banished me afterwards since they had a vendetta against me because I don’t understand reaction face emotes. So now I can’t even find friends to game with and play solo. I have not experienced this much toxicity since the days of ranked league of legends.
This is all just too sudden to go cold turkey from this subreddit with no warning. Will emergency services be open? What are the early signs of withdraw? Will Disney be open? Universal Studios Islands of Adventure? Does anyone realistically know where to specially get discounted tickets?
I do not have reddit gold/platinum at this time but will services restore to those who have those VIP features earlier than those who don’t have it? Or is it amount of reddit karma based? People who want to be ignorant and rude by saying “touch grass” need not comment. I have a medical condition that makes me severely allergic to organic wildlife matter. When you selected your starter Pokémon did you pick Bulbasaur? No, you did not touch grass. You went with Charmander or Squirtle. A lot of you might laugh and not take this seriously but I am a reddit pro power user. 93% of my phone’s battery app usage is for reddit and I upgraded my gaming pc to the 4090 for reddit. We all have our passions and hobbies and there is no need to shame others for theirs.
I’ve survived the hurricanes, the recession, pandemic and inflation. The death of vine, decline of digg, and the change from micro-usb. I don’t think I have the strength, the faith, nor the willpower strong enough to push through this blackout. Orlando is my home, my city. I was born and raised here. Even if we all leave this subreddit Orlando will still be with me, forever and always just like those who moved here from New York. They too, are Local and FLGrown. But it also begs the question on where Orlando Weekly will steal content posts next?
In the aftermath of all of this, will we all be the same person going in to this blackout as we are coming out? I have concerns that I won’t be “me” anymore. Who will take responsibility and be accountable for this emotional yet spiritual awakening traumatic event? The moderators?
[Edit] Thanks for the gold kind stranger! This is the way. The narwhal bacons at midnight (for those of you who are true redditors).

2023.06.09 22:41 LaticusLad Time Marches Ever Onward: Chapter 5

{THIS CHAPTER CONTAINS THE FOLLOWING: Existential dread, emotional moments, romance, and a singular phrase which could be seen as suggestive depending on how dirty your mind is. ;) }
(Any sentences or phrases wrapped with brackets "[ ]" are designated as inner monologue!)
Thank you to u/SpacePaladin15 for creating this wonderful literary universe!
< First Previous Next >
Memory transcription subject: James Willik, Human Historian
Date [standardized human time]: July 15, 2165
“Umm. Sooo, isn’t the universe only around 14 billion years old?”
“You would be correct.” The scientist’s expression showed that he was as dumbfounded as I was. “I should add that the highest number that any of our new dating devices can go is to around 20 billion, it is entirely possible that the artifact could be even older than we can detect.”
[What the fuck.]
A shrill voice from my left shook me out of my stupor. I looked to my side to see Lemva standing out of her seat, her tail lashing angrily. “Is this some elaborate joke? That isn’t possible. What you’re saying isn’t possible.” President Zhao began to speak. “I am fully aware how frankly nonsensical this is sounding, but this is serious and we need to approach this with an open mind. The Federation rated this item as a danger to the entire galaxy for a reason. We have no idea what we’re dealing with here and with something that could pose this much danger that is not acceptable.” Lemva suddenly spat with a ferocity I haven’t heard in a long time. Her anger frightened me not just because of her abnormal behavior and proximity, but also because of the recipient of her anger.
“You are aware that what you’re saying undermines everything we know about existence, right? Are you aware of that? Do you have any idea how INSANE this is sounding? You’re telling us, US, a couple of unqualified nobody misfit historians, that we’re somehow prophesied by this magical indestructible artifact that existed before time to do… something? AND YOU DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT THAT SOMETHING IS?! You just expect us to take this sitting down? Uh-uh, no, I’m not accepting this.” I tapped the table gently to get her attention, she snapped one of her orange eyes at me in response, I could barely get out what I was going to say in fear of her. “Maybe we shouldn’t yell at President Zhao?” I squeaked my suggestion at her. She just smoldered at me.
Lemva quickly pushed her chair backward and power-walked through the doors of the conference room, the force from her slamming the door rattled its hinges. I sometimes forget how strong she is, perks of evolving on such a high gravity planet I suppose. I glance at my remaining two partners and they are just as shaken as me. We all slowly look back at Zhao in fear of his response to Lemva’s attitude. Zhao still looked calm, so that’s good, but his posture indicated exhaustion.
“You three can leave for now, I’ll schedule another meeting for tomorrow once she’s settled down. If you could talk to her, that would be greatly appreciated.” Zhao started to rise from his seat but paused momentarily. “Oh I forgot to mention, you’ve been granted access to the guest residence wing. Lars, hand them their cards please.” A large man walked around and passed us our cards, handing me a second one presumably for Lemva. “The suite’s code on the tram is S29. You’re dismissed.”
Cayek, Tassak, and I quickly hurried out of the room to catch up with the furious venlil. Thankfully she hadn’t gone far, and was just waiting at the tram. We approached her quietly, none of us having the courage to start a conversation. She barely acknowledged us as we drew closer. I steeled myself to initiate contact but to my surprise she decided to do it first. “We’re leaving. Fuck this, they expect us to just accept that everything we know is wrong? They can take their invitations and shove them up their asses.” I gathered the courage to respond to her.
“I’ve never seen you this angry before. Talk to me.” She sighed, seeming to deflate as she did. Most of her anger melted off of her and left defeat in its place. “I need some time, I don’t have the energy right now.” “Alright, that’s ok. Before we left the conference room, we were handed keycards to the suite. Zhao said that we could stay there for a while.
Lemva looked up at my face with an eye. The happy glint she usually carried in her eyes was replaced with a dull feeling of hopelessness. “Okay.” I gently placed a hand on her shoulder. She answered my request to hug her before I had even asked. She buried the side of her head into my chest. We sat there for a few seconds, and it felt good, but all good things had to come to an end eventually. I silently guided her into the tram, Cayek and Tassak following close behind. The doors closed and I typed in the code for our suite, S29. The tram took off and winded through a maze of hidden tunnels before arriving at our destination.
Exiting the tram, we came to a closed set of heavy fake wooden doors with a keycard reader to the side. I swiped my card and the hidden locks on the doors clicked several times, before the doors swung open. [Wow. This is a really nice room.]
I guided Lemva onto a nearby sofa and marched into the gargantuan kitchen provided to us in order to prepare some coffee for her. As I waited for the coffee machine to finish, I saw Cayek and Tassak exploring their new surroundings. Cayek walked around and admired the luxurious artistry that permeated the space, while Tassak… Tassak poked at various objects as if she had never seen them before. She reminded me of a curious child. She accidentally tore a hole in a chair with her claw before hastily trying to hide the damage with a very obviously out of place pillow.
The coffee machine sputtered the last few drops of liquid ambrosia into Lemva’s mug and I hurried over to where she was sitting. I placed the warm cup into her paws and sat beside her. For several minutes we watched some TV on the large screen across from us. Lemva leaned more into my shoulder the longer we sat there. Tassak and Cayek had gone to their rooms by now. After watching 8 episodes of the ninety-seventh season of The Simpsons, she had calmed down.
I looked down at her. “Are you ready to talk now?” She nodded. “Mhm.” “Ok, do you wanna tell me why you got so angry during the conference?” She frowned slightly. “Everything they were saying… the artifact, I just…” She stopped for a moment to gather her words. “If what they said was true, and the artifact is from before the universe, and it depicts us… that implies so much. If what they said is true, then whoever made the artifact could see the future. If they could see the future, that means fate exists. If fate exists, then that means that everything I’ve ever done, everything that we’ve ever done, was meaningless. I mean, all my struggles, all my successes, for no reason.” She looked up at me and I could tell she could see my confusion.
“If you were playing a game, and every action you took did absolutely nothing to change the end result, but the whole time you thought that they did, wouldn’t it hurt to realize in the middle of a round that your input is entirely meaningless and changes nothing? But then, if you look at it another way, there’s the idea that you’re not even really alive, that you’re just a machine going through the motions. The idea that everything you were, are, and will be, every action you take, every thought you think, every emotion you feel is just a set of directions and ideas set to play out for the rest of eternity, that you’re just a couple words on a page to be read…”
I had no idea how to respond to that. I was never all too good at imagining such high-brow philosophical concepts, and I’ve always been even worse at handling the emotions of others, so wrap the two up into a depressing little veggie wrap and you’ve got me stumped. I did the only thing I could think to do at that moment. I wrapped my arms around her and placed my chin on her forehead. She snuggled into my body. I hadn’t felt this much comfort for a long, long time.
“Y’know… after I dropped contact those few years ago, I always wanted to send you a message, tell you I miss you, tell you why I stopped contacting, those sorts of things. But I never did. Because I was afraid.” I lifted my chin off Lemva’s head and she looked up at my face. I stared down back at her. “What were you afraid of?” She asked me in a soft voice. “Lots of things. I was afraid of explaining what happened, the “incident” was too recent to talk about. I was afraid that you’d hate me for disappearing, and the fear only got worse the longer time went. But mostly…” I inhaled sharply as I prepared myself. “I was afraid you’d betray me.” Lemva’s eyes held a puzzled and pained expression.
“I didn’t tell you who killed my parents, only that someone did. Soon after I was born, my father went into the venlil exchange program and met a venlil named Draton. They became friends almost immediately, or at least, Draton pretended to become friends.” Malice filled my voice as I talked about the scum who murdered my family. “I loved him growing up, almost as much as my parents, for a while he was like, my third favorite person in the world. He was like an uncle to me and a sibling to my parents.” I gulped and looked away. “Hopefully it should be obvious what I’m saying he did.” I took a shuddering breath and looked deep into Lemva’s eyes. “I was terrified that another loved one would turn out to be a monster. I was terrified that you would turn out to be a monster.”
I closed my eyes and mustered all the courage I could manage and called upon every deity from every religion I could remember or had even heard of in passing. I opened my eyes and placed my hands gently on the sides of Lemva’s head. She didn’t resist. “Alright… this is my greatest secret yet. I’ve been so scared to tell you but I can’t keep holding it in anymore, I need you to know.” Lemva held her breath.
“I love you Lemva, I’ve loved you since we first hung out in history club, I loved you when you cheered and hopped around at our graduation, I loved you when you talked so enthusiastically about your job. I always have, and I always will, love you.” I could feel my face burning as blood rushed through my cheeks. Lemva had it even worse though, her face was more orange than the fruit the color was named after. Her eyes were so wide I could barely see her irises anymore.
Tears formed in her eyes, but I could tell right away that these weren’t tears of sadness. The goofiest and cutest smile I had ever seen in my life quickly formed on her little face. She squeaked at me in delight. “You have no idea how long I’ve been waiting to hear you say that.” She reached up, grabbed my hands, and squeezed them tight. I could feel her tail wrap around my back, a gentle force guided me closer to her. “You sure you wanna do this?”
“I’ve been around humans all my life, I know what a kiss is, dummy.” She whispered amusedly. We closed our eyes and embraced for the first time. All my worries, fears, and doubts melted away and drained off of my mind like meltwater off a cliff as we sat there basking in each other’s warmth.
We separated our faces and stared at each other. The happy glint in her beautiful orange eyes had returned brighter than I had ever seen it before. We sat staring for what seemed like forever, I had forgotten that a world existed beyond this sofa. I looked up at an antique clock mounted on the wall and waited a moment as my implant translated the extraterrestrial time-keeping system into a familiar 12-hour format. 8PM. Almost as if in response to my realization of the time, a wave of exhaustion crashed into me like a rogue space freighter. I wanted so desperately to stay here cuddled with Lemva for the rest of my life, but alas, sleep deprivation is a cruel mistress.
“Lem, it’s 8pm, we gotta get some sleep if we’re gonna attend the conference tomorrow.” “Awww, a couple more minutes? Pleeeeeeeease?” “I know this is really comfy and I know you don’t wanna think about ‘the object’ but we’ve got to do it.” I could tell she was still uncomfortable thinking about the implication that even the mention of the artifact carried with it, and we still would need to talk that through, but for now at least, she wasn’t having an existential crisis.
We untangled ourselves, rose off the sofa, and headed toward our rooms. But Lemva suddenly halted in the middle of the hallway. I spun around to see why she stopped. She looked down at the ground and rubbed her paws together like she does when she’s nervous, her face was an almost neon orange, miraculously managing to be even more vibrant than before. She wore a bashful smile on her face. “Is something wrong?” “no… I was just wondering, could I sleep in your room for tonight?” “Sure. Why, is there something wrong?”
“No… there’s just… something I’ve been wanting to try…”
“Wha- oh.”

I've been attempting to set up a new modlist, and when attempting to sheathe and unsheathe weapons, my character will perform two different animations in succession: initially using those of my chosen mod (Extra Drawing Animations) and then following it up with another (which I think is from Simple Dual Sheathe?

2023.06.09 22:38 regresstic THEORY - POE II - Sin & The Mirror of Kilandra

THEORY - POE II - Sin & The Mirror of Kilandra
QUICK POE1 LORE RECAP AS I PERSONALLY UNDERSTAND THINGS --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Wraeclast was once primordial soup. Then, there was life. And from life, humanity. Humanity was aware enough to create their own gods - a being of great power, with some control over reality as we know it. To make a god, one typically goes through a process called Ascension.
Take the story of Innocence, using the concept of 'Divinity' as his ascension. He basically faked his way to the top through the use of another religion, focusing its belief entirely on him. His power stems from believers and faith, where his projections inform the beliefs of his followers, and imprint those exaggerated traits back onto him. But this process is often unstable. Something is seemingly lost in the conversion. At a certain point, a God loses their identity, mostly because of this hivemind feedback loop. Most of the gods in Wraeclast are made under similar circumstances, wherein one is heralded by the many to /be somebody/ of importance.
One of the many Innocence related loredrops in Sanctum
In Innocence's ascension, he used his own brother to sell his story. If he was to be the 'most pure', then his brother 'Sin' was projected to be the 'most impure'. The two ascended from Divinity all the same - this shared belief perpetuated into being - yet the nature of cognition surrounding Sin was wholly different. Not one of reverence, but damnation, Sin kept much of their individuality, perhaps simply out of not being at the center of a perpetuating god complex. In essence, Sin was not as prone to the machinations of the collective as the other gods, and this gave him autonomy. Sin came to understand the nature of this Divinity, and from there went on his own journey. Exiled in his own right, he lived his life, saw new gods rise and fall. Fell in love. Made his own gods children. And yet, (and this is purely my conjecture) Sin was still divided from them on a fundamental level. The nature of his ascension was unique, and this gave him an outsiders perspective. He saw his loved ones quarrel, fueled by the going ons of humanity. On many levels, he pitied all involved. And from there, an idea was birthed. A 'seed' was planted. And so, Sin made The Beast.
The process of the Beast's creation is yet unknown. But its nature is explained to us by Sin. It was designed to feed upon the very energies of faith - to starve out and lull Wraeclast's gods to sleep. But what he hadn't expected, was the byproduct. The beast didn't just consume divine energies. The process of digesting it leaked its inverse, Corruption. If the Divine was ordered and focused, Corruption was chaotic and maddening. And this new force wrecked havoc over Wraeclast. Free of gods, humanity did what humanity does best, and sought power from this new energy. The first to attempt it were the Vaal, though that would lead to their own annihilation. Then came the Eternal Empire, only to once again fall. Then came High Templar Dominus of Innocence's now crestfallen order, seeking power as many had in the past.
Gods on Wraeclast mostly came about from ascension through Divine energies. But with the Divine starved out and Corruption in its wake, humanity attempted to ascend with this more chaotic energy - cultivated from chaos and havoc. Where Divinity is order - godhood derived from the collective... Corruption was something altogether new. To stop this spread of corruption, we traveled to The Beast and stilled its heart. But in doing so, we awoke the gods. Innocence stirred. But a more pressing matter was on hand. There was a god of corruption, and it had awoken to a new and glorious age.
We spend the rest of the game killing gods with the help of Sin - the self proclaimed 'Thief of Virtue'. Sin seems to understand the convergance of divine powers better than anyone, and with each god we slay attempts to coalesce enough divinity within us to rival Kitava. Innocence, the outright God of Divinity - is our best bet at staving back the god of Corruption. And instead of murdering Innocence, the god gets his own little redemption arc, working together with Sin to stop Kitava's rampage. We still Kitava's heart, and Innocence asks for Sin's forgiveness. Sin, the very nice guy that he is, accepts Innocence, and the two fly off to 'fix Wraeclast'.
Endgame is all about diving into the chaos of the worlds beyond our own - of all the different Wraeclasts, their primordial entities, dimensions, and foreign threats to our reality that exist. New, existential enemies are present, and its a whole can of worms that the sequel to Path of Exile will also be dealing with, as they share the same living story.
THE ACTUAL THEORY ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
POE 2 Logo - A corrupted Mirror of Kilandra
In the POE2 trailer, we see a Mirror of Kilandra. It is Corrupted. The visual language of those fleshy veins are seen althroughout Sin's portrayal as well. So what's going on here? To understand, let's talk about Kilandra herself.
We don't know much about who Kilandra was before her visit to Wraeclast, but we do know she visited back when it was primordial soup. Within her visit, she found a 'lake', already realized. And now, she cannot leave. Her attempts to do so are always futile, and in her captivity she seeks freedom. From the very beginning, she has watched the going-on's of Wraeclast. One of her more interesting comments is on the creation of humanity's own gods through Divinity, stating it to be like prey creating their own predators. In time, the Lake would have other visitors - humanity within Wraeclast that would stumble upon this realm. Kilandra states that they do not understand the cost of their visitation. The mirror, at least from Kilandra's perspective, seems to be selective in who visits, and on some level seems to enjoy these conversations.
Ancient Etchings VI - Kilandra - Lake of Kilandra
Those that agreed to help her, even if it took them generations, eventually came to understand some dark truth related to the lake, and burned away all records of the place. She recounts one particular traveler, a 'thief', and reflects upon their discussion. This visitor is most likely Sin, and based on what they discussed, he likely came to the mirror when he was at conflict with his overall place in deism.
Ancient Etchings V - Kilandra - Lake of Kilandra
Kilandra then gave him advice. 'What you need, my little thief, is a shattered mirror.'
I like to imagine that this conversation is the smoking gun of when Sin decided to create the Beast, and I believe Kilandra's advice was pivotal to its creation. Perhaps the mirror itself, is the source of the 'seed' that Sin planted.
Kilandra's conversation likely planted that (metaphorical) seed in Sin's head to corrupt Wraeclast, with her ultimate goal of freeing herself. The Lake is essentially a mirror of Wraeclast, right? But the devs state very clearly: a 'Mirror cannot be Corrupted. And Corrupted cannot be Mirrored.' So what if her goal here is to corrupt Wraeclast enough that the Lake can no longer reflect Wraeclast? What if she's the Big Bad, awaiting her freedom? There are hints all over unique text relating to the dangers of an innocent, punished, and who else would have better reason to be rid of Wraeclast, than its prisoner-since-forever?
Now with the reveal of the logo directly showing a Corrupted Mirror of Kilandra, these concepts seem all the more tied together. So a few questions remain. Mainly... Who is planting these seeds? Even though I believe Kalandra to be the main beneficiary here, how active is she in all of this?
"I have a plan... I will escape this place, no matter the cost... for now, I must simply bide my Time... sooner or later, one will come, even despite the barriers. One will find t heir way to me, setting the proper events in motion..." - Ancient Etchings VII - Kilandra - Lake of Kilandra
The Act 2 demo showcasing the veinous look of this corruption.
The monster we see in the title is most likely this same Seed of Corruption that birthed the beast. It's veinous, and clearly shown off in the Act 2 of Path of Exile's sequel as an entity that is wrapping around and encompassing locations. I have no doubt in climactic scenes, entire areas will be fleshified in a similar way to The Beast.
The fact that its literally a roman numeral II is killing my immersion, ngl.
Something to note is that the Beast was not given direction by Sin when he created it. Its autonomy, in many ways, seems to be a reflection of the desires of humanity, and that 'Corruption' was not something Sin had anticipated. Perhaps this new wave of seeds has purpose distilled within it - a master who was not as gentle a soul as Sin? That could very well be our antagonist for a large portion of the game. Yet... It all still feels like its linked back to Kilandra.
Just a lil cool thing to note - Sin is often depicted with the same veinous tendrils.
So to recap. The Seed of Corruption is directly linked to the Mirror of Kilandra. I believe Kilandra wants to corrupt the world enough to cease the mirror's reflection of wraeclast, or corrupt the Lake itself. And if she is freed? That's... got to be our Big Bad for POE 2, right? Someone so wronged by a place that she just wants it... gone? I know we're all used to nuking eldritch beings in end game, but that feels like a perfect transition for POE2 endgame to start focusing on otherwordly threats. Kilandra was here since the primordial age, and we still have very little idea about her life before the Lake.

2023.06.09 22:37 JoshAsdvgi The Sacred Origin of Smoking

The Sacred Origin of Smoking

The Sacred Origin of Smoking

Smoking is, of course, originally an American custom, and with the
Indians of North America possesses a sacred origin.
"Of the sacred origin of tobacco the Indian has no doubt, although scarcely two tribes exactly agree in the details of the way in which the invaluable boon was conferred on man. In substance, however, the legend is the same with all.
Ages ago, at the time when spirits considered the world yet good enough for their occasional residence, a very great and powerful spirit lay down by the side of his fire to
sleep in the forest.
While so lying, his arch-enemy came that way, and thought it would be a good chance for mischief; so, gently approaching the sleeper, he rolled him over toward the fire, till his head rested among the glowing embers, and his hair was set ablaze.
The roaring of the fire in his ears roused the good spirit, and, leaping to his feet, he rushed in a fright through the forest, and as he did so the wind caught his singed hair as it flew off, and, carrying it away, sowed it broadcast over the earth, into which it sank and took root, and grew up tobacco.
"If anything exceeds the savage's belief in tobacco, it is that which attaches to his pipe.
In life it is his dearest companion, and in death is inseparable; for whatever else may be forgotten at his funeral obsequies, his pipe is laid in the grave with him to solace him
on his journey to the 'happy hunting-ground.' '
The first pipe' is among the most sacred of their traditions; as well it may be, when it
is sincerely believed that no other than the Great Spirit himself was the original smoker.
"Many years ago the Great Spirit called all his people together, and, standing on the precipice of the Red Pipe-stone Rock, he broke a piece from the wall, and, kneading it in his hands, made a huge pipe, which he smoked over them, and to the north, south, east, and west.
He told them that this stone was red, that it was their flesh, that of it they might make their pipes of peace; but it belonged equally to all; and the war-club and the scalping-knife must not be raised on this ground.
And he smoked his pipe and talked to them till the last whiff, and then his head disappeared in a cloud; and immediately the whole surface of the rock for several miles was melted and glazed.
Two great ovens were opened beneath, and two women (guardian spirits of the place) entered them in a blaze of fire; and they are heard there yet, and answer to the invocation of the priests, or medicine-men, who consult them on their visits to this sacred place.
"The 'sacred place' here mentioned is the site of the world-renowned 'Pipe-stone Quarry.' From this place has the North American Indian ever obtained material for his pipe, and from no other spot.
Catlin asserts that in every tribe he has visited (numbering about forty, and extending over thousands of miles of country) the pipes have all been made of this red pipe-stone.
Clarke, the great American traveller,relates that in his intercourse with many tribes who as yet had had but little intercourse with the whites he learned that almost every adult had made the pilgrimage to the sacred rock and drawn from thence his pipe-stone.
So peculiar is this 'quarry' that Catlin has been at the pains to describe it very fully and graphically, and from his account the following is taken:
"'Our approach to it was from the east, and the ascent, for the distance of fifty miles, over a continued succession of slopes and terraces, almost imperceptibly rising one above another, that seemed to lift us to a great height.
There is not a tree or bush to be seen from the highest summit of the ridge, though the eye may range east and west, almost to a boundless extent, over a surface covered with a short
grass, that is green at one's feet, and about him, but changing to blue in distance, like nothing but the blue and vastness of the ocean.
"'On the very top of this mound or ridge we found the far-famed quarry or fountain of the Red Pipe, which is truly an anomaly in nature.
The principal and most striking feature of this place is a perpendicular wall of close-grained, compact quartz, of twenty-five and thirty feet in elevation, running nearly north and south, with its face to the west, exhibiting a front of nearly two miles in length, when it disappears at both ends, by running under the prairie, which becomes there a little more elevated, and probably covers it for many miles, both to the north and south.
The depression of the brow of the ridge at this place has been caused by the wash of a little stream, produced by several springs at the top, a little back from the wall, which has
gradually carried away the superincumbent earth, and having bared the wall for the distance of two miles, is now left to glide for some distance over a perfectly level surface of quartz rock; and then to leap from the top of the wall into a deep basin below, and thence
seek its course to the Missouri, forming the extreme source of a noted and powerful tributary, called the "Big Sioux."
"'At the base of this wall there is a level prairie, of half a mile in width, running parallel to it, in any, and in all parts of which, the Indians procure the red stone for their pipes, by digging through the soil and several slaty layers of the red stone to the depth of four or five feet.
From the very numerous marks of ancient and modern diggings or excavations, it would appear that this place has been for many centuries resorted to for the red stone; and from the great number of graves and remains of ancient fortifications in the vicinity, it would
seem, as well as from their actual traditions, that the Indian tribes have long held this place in high superstitious estimation; and also that it has been the resort of different tribes, who have made their regular pilgrimages here to renew their pipes.'
"As far as may be gathered from the various and slightly conflicting accounts of Indian smoking observances, it would seem that to every tribe, or, if it be an extensive one, to every detachment of a tribe, belongs a potent instrument known as 'medicine pipe-stem.'
It is nothing more than a tobacco-pipe, splendidly adorned with savage trappings, yet it is regarded as a sacred thing to be used only on the most solemn occasions, or in the transaction of such important business as among us could only be concluded by the sanction of a Cabinet Council, and affixing the royal signature."
