Joining after a suicide attempt? long story short when i was 13 I was feeling real bad and tried to kill myself. I went to a mental hospital for 7 days. I had out patient care for a few months after and before. I was on antidepressants for less ~8 months (but never took them). I am 18 now and and very very interested in joining the military. I originally wanted to go navy but they dqed me full stop nothing they could do. I talked to my army recruiter and told him about my situation. He told me i should lie and not to worry about it. But i have scars on my arm from SH and the navy already has my full medical records. Should i be worried about the navy's records getting to the army? And should i go against my morals and lie to meps? Like i said i really have no other plans i didn't realize its was a automatic DQ even if you are better for multiple years.

Hey all, I hope you're doing well! I was just wondering if some of you could clarify what my recruiter told me. I first asked my recruiter about 2 year active duty contracts and also asked him if it would be 2 years active with 6 years of IRR or if it would be 2 years active with 2 years in the Reserves and then 4 years of IRR. He said it was possible to make it 2 years with 6 years of IRR (which seemed too good to be true), but I went along with it. I was supposed to go to MEPS in the next few days, but thankfully another recruiter caught the mistake and informed me it was 2 years active with 2 years in the Reserves. After that, my recruiter offered a 3 year contract. However, the other recruiter clarified it was 3 years plus basic and AIT. Is that true or does the 3 years include both BCT and AIT? Thanks for the help!

Hey, I'm an 11B with Delta 2/19 at Sand Hill rn. Just turned green a few days ago. I couldn't get an option 40 while enlisting because of a past surgery but my GE and PT scores are competitive for RASP. I heard Ranger recruiters may come around at some point asking for volunteers.
Anyone have any experience with this or know about what week that might happen? I heard because of Covid things are a little weird atm and they might not be as active recruiting guys out of basic atm.
Also general order number 5 is really twisting my nuts. So excited for general order 6.

Social life in the army? I keep seeing posts about people being very lonely and unhappy. I'm thinking about enlisting,going great with the recruiter and i'm very excited about the job etc. However,i don't want to end up feeling like that,is this something i need to consider?
I'm very happy with myself,good mental stability and some other virtues so i'm not worried about ending up in a bad place.
I am worried i will end up with no one in my life. I have no family,some friends but they won't be around. And some that won't be friends after i join (i don't follow the lifestyle i was raised in and this is another thing that goes against some cultural expectations etc,was cut out of the community/family/friends) long story short,Can i count on the army to provide some opportunities for a social life/friendship or can i end up like some of these posts? Should i take this into consideration? Is this something i should be worried about?
Sorry about the stupid(?)question,it's just important to me.

So I got out of RA a year ago now. I served “7 1/2 years”. I went into the reserves right after went to 5 drill weekends never got paid never got a chance to inprocess. I did everything they asked , January rolls around I ask them to go IRR the CO and Top had no issues with that. I fill out the paper work then, I leave my PSG sends me a message saying they can ETS me instead like I never was in the reserves. I agreed to it and I drove on. Everything is good for a few months I finally get a message from my PSG I need to sign the paper work again, after not hearing from anyone over there for months I do it and not worry about it. I get told a month later, I gotta check in with my PSG once a week to check the status of my packet. which I do no problem fast forward to August. I’m getting told to sign my NCOER even though, I only worked for them about 5 months so I’m hesitant about signing. A new PL gets mad and tells me I have to if not I’ll get demoted and a negative discharge and says I have all these U’s for Feb-July I should basically have my ass handed to me. so I was forced to sign and start attending their zoom meetings. I spoke to my PSG and 1sgt about everything and they just tell me okay then brush it off, it’s like I’m not being heard. I spoke to jag they said the only thing they can do is fix the pay issue. So my question is what should I do? What can I do I just want to be done with them?

Do direct commission applicants still go to BCT and then OCS? If so, then what exactly is the difference between direction commissioning and the regular route of becoming an officer?
According to the Army website, "Direct Commission allows leaders in professional fields to become Army Officers immediately. Typically, a direct commission is given if you have an undergraduate degree, as well as expertise and special skills the Army needs at that time." I can see this happening maybe for a doctor or something, but I am primarily concerned with 17A Cyber Operations Officer.

Can someone explain to me what the division commander's hip pocket scholarship is? I'm interested in that, but I'm confused on the benefit portion. Mostly interested in the financial information. Not sure if it's pertinent, but I'm currently an active duty staff sgt.
The application has you fill out a financial statement (cc form 228-r) and it's very invasive about your finances. Things like partner's salary, total monthly debts, whatever I'll fill it out. I'm confused though, in the bottom portion it asks about total monthly income, stipends, loans, salaries, ect.
So I guess the few things I'm not understnding are, don't I "ETS" and not have a salary unless I get a part time job? Do I stay "in" with the division commander's hip pocket scholarship and accrue federal service time? If I stay in, do I keep my current salary and get BAH and things like that? If I have to uproot my family and PCS to my college with no salary and living off of a $420 stipend, I don't think my wife and me could afford it which would definitely hamper my commissioning process.
Appreciate any info anyone has on this process, or even if someone has a POC I can contact who has been through this process.

My recruiter is telling me to lie about multiple things and I am uncomfortable doing so. I am 27 years old. I was on anti-depressants about 6-7 years ago for a short period, but stopped taking them quickly after starting. I DID have a prescription though and he's saying to just say I didn't. I am not depressed and have not had any issues since, but I don't want to lie and screw myself later on.  
I did convince him to include a waiver for a misdemeanor charge from about 5 years ago. It irritated me that he even suggested just ignoring it.  
I'm also getting a waiver for a surgery I had about 14 years ago (foot injury called "jones break", simple surgery)  
Then there's just weird shit he's saying to lie about, like saying my wife's step-dad is her real dad. Saying I never had a passport, even though I did and just no longer physically have it.  
Everyone in this recruiting office seems to say the same things he does.  
I want this badly. I want to serve my country. The thought of doing it by beginning with a lie makes me feel ashamed of myself. I have not yet been to MEPS. Only done some paperwork and taken a pre-ASVAB test (scored 75). Should I just contact a different recruiter and explain my situation? I don't want to just screw over my current recruiter, but I really don't want to fuck myself down the road for stupid lies.

Just a few questions if anyone is willing to help out. I’m currently serving in Active Duty right now. Just hit my two year mark. Hitting my ETS date in 18 months. I’m probably going to separate from the Army once I hit my time but I was also thinking about switching to the National Guard. My questions are: For anyone who has done switched, how different was it from Active Duty? Another question is: Is it possible to be a part of a State’s Unit without actually having lived there? Basically, I’m originally from California, but I’d want to move to Arizona, so is there a way I can be a part of the AZ National Guard, or would I have to be a part of the CA NG? I understand that I would need to be a current resident for the particular state to be a part of its NG, but what if it’s a switch from Active Duty?

Tl;DR: Do you need to go active to get good training or is OSUT enough?
Hello, I have a few questions about joining the army infantry to determine if it's even a worthwhile pursuit in this day and age.
Is Infantry OSUT even useful training? Or do you only get the useful stuff at your unit? Could you be somewhat competent with just this and possibly being trained by a combat veteran?
Does your active unit even teach you good training nowadays, or would I be spending my entire 2-3 year enlistment as basically a glorified janitogroundskeeper now that it's peacetime?
If the active route doesn't hold much value anymore, would I basically be getting the same value in terms of training and skills to just join the guard or reserves?
Thanks for anyone taking the time to read this and respond.
I'm a prior service Air Force vet and a former amateur MMA fighter. After learning to fight with unarmed for 2 plus years, I've come to realize my complete lack of skills in regards to weapons and modern combat (and TBH, I also kind of miss the military life). With the way the world is going, I think these skills are becoming increasingly important. I don't expect or want to become some kind of door-kicking badass operator, but I would like to have gun skills and be able to be somewhat competent in a firefight.

Once we know if you are approved to even physical, and then pass the physical, that is good for 2 years so you have time to still take it into effect with your decision making process."
Am I fucked?

Joining after a suicide attempt? long story short when i was 13 I was feeling real bad and tried to kill myself. I went to a mental hospital for 7 days. I had out patient care for a few months after and before. I was on antidepressants for less ~8 months (but never took them). I am 18 now and and very very interested in joining the military. I originally wanted to go navy but they dqed me full stop nothing they could do. I talked to my army recruiter and told him about my situation. He told me i should lie and not to worry about it. But i have scars on my arm from SH and the navy already has my full medical records. Should i be worried about the navy's records getting to the army? And should i go against my morals and lie to meps? Like i said i really have no other plans i didn't realize its was a automatic DQ even if you are better for multiple years.

Wanting to join after my husband getting out. My recruiter told me to lie and say I’ve never taken Antidepressants, because as long as it’s over 2 years ago I’ll be fine. But I was on Tricare when I was given them. Will I be okay as long as I say I never took any? Or can they get access to that.

Hey all, I hope you're doing well! I was just wondering if some of you could clarify what my recruiter told me. I first asked my recruiter about 2 year active duty contracts and also asked him if it would be 2 years active with 6 years of IRR or if it would be 2 years active with 2 years in the Reserves and then 4 years of IRR. He said it was possible to make it 2 years with 6 years of IRR (which seemed too good to be true), but I went along with it. I was supposed to go to MEPS in the next few days, but thankfully another recruiter caught the mistake and informed me it was 2 years active with 2 years in the Reserves. After that, my recruiter offered a 3 year contract. However, the other recruiter clarified it was 3 years plus basic and AIT. Is that true or does the 3 years include both BCT and AIT? Thanks for the help!

Hey, I'm an 11B with Delta 2/19 at Sand Hill rn. Just turned green a few days ago. I couldn't get an option 40 while enlisting because of a past surgery but my GE and PT scores are competitive for RASP. I heard Ranger recruiters may come around at some point asking for volunteers.
Anyone have any experience with this or know about what week that might happen? I heard because of Covid things are a little weird atm and they might not be as active recruiting guys out of basic atm.

Social life in the army? I keep seeing posts about people being very lonely and unhappy. I'm thinking about enlisting,going great with the recruiter and i'm very excited about the job etc. However,i don't want to end up feeling like that,is this something i need to consider?
I'm very happy with myself,good mental stability and some other virtues so i'm not worried about ending up in a bad place.
I am worried i will end up with no one in my life. I have no family,some friends but they won't be around. And some that won't be friends after i join (i don't follow the lifestyle i was raised in and this is another thing that goes against some cultural expectations etc,was cut out of the community/family/friends) long story short,Can i count on the army to provide some opportunities for a social life/friendship or can i end up like some of these posts? Should i take this into consideration? Is this something i should be worried about?
Sorry about the stupid(?)question,it's just important to me.

So I got out of RA a year ago now. I served “7 1/2 years”. I went into the reserves right after went to 5 drill weekends never got paid never got a chance to inprocess. I did everything they asked , January rolls around I ask them to go IRR the CO and Top had no issues with that. I fill out the paper work then, I leave my PSG sends me a message saying they can ETS me instead like I never was in the reserves. I agreed to it and I drove on. Everything is good for a few months I finally get a message from my PSG I need to sign the paper work again, after not hearing from anyone over there for months I do it and not worry about it. I get told a month later, I gotta check in with my PSG once a week to check the status of my packet. which I do no problem fast forward to August. I’m getting told to sign my NCOER even though, I only worked for them about 5 months so I’m hesitant about signing. A new PL gets mad and tells me I have to if not I’ll get demoted and a negative discharge and says I have all these U’s for Feb-July I should basically have my ass handed to me. so I was forced to sign and start attending their zoom meetings. I spoke to my PSG and 1sgt about everything and they just tell me okay then brush it off, it’s like I’m not being heard. I spoke to jag they said the only thing they can do is fix the pay issue. So my question is what should I do? What can I do I just want to be done with them?

Can someone explain to me what the division commander's hip pocket scholarship is? I'm interested in that, but I'm confused on the benefit portion. Mostly interested in the financial information. Not sure if it's pertinent, but I'm currently an active duty staff sgt.
The application has you fill out a financial statement (cc form 228-r) and it's very invasive about your finances. Things like partner's salary, total monthly debts, whatever I'll fill it out. I'm confused though, in the bottom portion it asks about total monthly income, stipends, loans, salaries, ect.
So I guess the few things I'm not understnding are, don't I "ETS" and not have a salary unless I get a part time job? Do I stay "in" with the division commander's hip pocket scholarship and accrue federal service time? If I stay in, do I keep my current salary and get BAH and things like that? If I have to uproot my family and PCS to my college with no salary and living off of a $420 stipend, I don't think my wife and me could afford it which would definitely hamper my commissioning process.
Appreciate any info anyone has on this process, or even if someone has a POC I can contact who has been through this process.

My recruiter is telling me to lie about multiple things and I am uncomfortable doing so. I am 27 years old. I was on anti-depressants about 6-7 years ago for a short period, but stopped taking them quickly after starting. I DID have a prescription though and he's saying to just say I didn't. I am not depressed and have not had any issues since, but I don't want to lie and screw myself later on.  
I did convince him to include a waiver for a misdemeanor charge from about 5 years ago. It irritated me that he even suggested just ignoring it.  
I'm also getting a waiver for a surgery I had about 14 years ago (foot injury called "jones break", simple surgery)  
Then there's just weird shit he's saying to lie about, like saying my wife's step-dad is her real dad. Saying I never had a passport, even though I did and just no longer physically have it.  
Everyone in this recruiting office seems to say the same things he does.  
I want this badly. I want to serve my country. The thought of doing it by beginning with a lie makes me feel ashamed of myself. I have not yet been to MEPS. Only done some paperwork and taken a pre-ASVAB test (scored 75). Should I just contact a different recruiter and explain my situation? I don't want to just screw over my current recruiter, but I really don't want to fuck myself down the road for stupid lies.

Just a few questions if anyone is willing to help out. I’m currently serving in Active Duty right now. Just hit my two year mark. Hitting my ETS date in 18 months. I’m probably going to separate from the Army once I hit my time but I was also thinking about switching to the National Guard. My questions are: For anyone who has done switched, how different was it from Active Duty? Another question is: Is it possible to be a part of a State’s Unit without actually having lived there? Basically, I’m originally from California, but I’d want to move to Arizona, so is there a way I can be a part of the AZ National Guard, or would I have to be a part of the CA NG? I understand that I would need to be a current resident for the particular state to be a part of its NG, but what if it’s a switch from Active Duty?

Tl;DR: Do you need to go active to get good training or is OSUT enough?
Hello, I have a few questions about joining the army infantry to determine if it's even a worthwhile pursuit in this day and age.
Is Infantry OSUT even useful training? Or do you only get the useful stuff at your unit? Could you be somewhat competent with just this and possibly being trained by a combat veteran?
Does your active unit even teach you good training nowadays, or would I be spending my entire 2-3 year enlistment as basically a glorified janitogroundskeeper now that it's peacetime?
If the active route doesn't hold much value anymore, would I basically be getting the same value in terms of training and skills to just join the guard or reserves?
Thanks for anyone taking the time to read this and respond.
I'm a prior service Air Force vet and a former amateur MMA fighter. After learning to fight with unarmed for 2 plus years, I've come to realize my complete lack of skills in regards to weapons and modern combat (and TBH, I also kind of miss the military life). With the way the world is going, I think these skills are becoming increasingly important. I don't expect or want to become some kind of door-kicking badass operator, but I would like to have gun skills and be able to be somewhat competent in a firefight.

2020.09.26 03:05 ManCalledMolly 41 [M4F] Kansas City - Love in the time of Corona?

Hello!
I'm a New York native who moved to Kansas City in 2015 for an opportunity that was too good to ignore. I've fallen in love with this charming city. Having known nothing about it previously, I've been impressed by the great food, the good people, and the robust music scene. I currently live in a two-bedroom apartment in Midtown. Just a boy and his dog. No pesky roommates.
I'm attractive and in great shape. Most people think I look younger than my age. I have dark eyes, a full head of dark hair with a few greys, a bit of well-groomed scruff, and naturally tan skin. With respect to your appearance, I don't really have strong preferences, but I tend to gravitate towards women with slim to average frames and a "girly" personality.
I'm recently out of a long-term relationship and dipping my toes back into the dating pool. My goal is to meet an interesting woman and develop a friendship that might evolve into something that endures, but I also don’t intend to rush anything.
With the exception of a fulfilling relationship with a loving partner, I've got my life in order. Hopefully, you've got some degree of stability and minimal drama. Ideally, you're independent and have a job that you enjoy.
Important to know:
Politically, I'm a "progressive". If you have some "conservative" views or positions, that's probably not an issue. However, if you're a passionate supporter and defender of Trump, that tells me a lot about you, and we will definitely not get along.
Some things I enjoy:
  • Food: Self-styled non-pretentious foodie with a very adventurous palate. I love trying new foods. I have a personal rule that I try to avoid eating at the same restaurant twice. You don't have to be quite so brave or adhere to this rule! My favorite thing to eat is definitely sushi. If you're a vegan/vegetarian, I respect that! That is not a problem for me, and I'm actually open to the idea of a lax form of vegetarianism myself. I'm also a serviceable cook, though I don't really enjoy cooking. I'm a great dish-washer!
  • Fitness: My health is important to me, especially as I get older. I exercise regularly and have also begun to enjoy running. I’d welcome a workout buddy.
  • Reading: Hard to beat being curled up with my Kindle and my dog. I mostly read non-fiction, particularly books focused on political and social topics.
  • Film/television: I enjoy watching movies and going to the theater, particularly for big-ticket spectacles like the Marvel films or for movies that benefit from a crowd.
  • Games: A good form of escapism for me, especially these days where most social activities are curtailed. I tend to play single-player video games that let me pick up and play or pause anytime. I also enjoy board-gaming with friends. My favorite are ones that involve some sort of social component and deduction, like Resistance or Werewolf.
  • Music: I really enjoy concerts and live music. I'm tolerant of just about any genre but gravitate towards indie/pop/EDM. I love discovering new music, so if you want to share something you're digging right now and think I might enjoy, that would be amazing.
  • Dancing: I have a blast going out and busting a move and would like to do it more. No experience with any actual forms, but I'd love to learn something like the salsa.
  • Animals: Lover of all animals, hater of insects. I have one dog. He's a small and fluffy Pekingese and he adooooores attention. I promise he'll love you.
  • Cleaning: I keep both my home and myself neat and tidy. I’m something of a minimalist as well. Not a big fan of collecting tons of trinkets and tchotchkes.
  • Travel: I'm more of a homebody, but I do enjoy road trips. Nothing better than stopping at all the fun rest areas along the way, or using Atlas Obscura to find interesting things off the beaten path. I'd like to drive across the country in a camper someday.
  • Coffee: I actually don't like the taste of coffee but I love caffeine, so... I'm currently experimenting with pour-over brewing. Guess it's my quarantine project? I've been slowly piecing together the gear for it. If it doesn't pan out, there's always tea, right?
One other thing you might wanna know:
I find that I'm most sexually compatible with kinky, submissive women who can fuel my dominant side, but it's not critically important. I am not interested in "hotwifing"; If you need to be shared with other men, I am not the right guy for you. I'm also not bisexual, but it's perfectly fine with me if you are and want to explore that side of yourself. Lastly, I'm not interested in a "24/7 BDSM lifestyle" relationship. Outside the bedroom, I like my partner smart, independent, and capable.
I think that about covers it for now! If you're serious about meeting me in person, reach out to me and let's chat and set something up. Don't be timid!
Long-distance respondents: I'd love hearing from you, but only if you're willing to make a real effort to meet me after we talk and get to know one another. Ideally, you're in a position where you're able to relocate to Kansas City to live with me in a hypothetical future in which we're both committed and seriously into one another.
Please send me a message instead of using Reddit chat. Mobile apps don't do chat, so I won't be able to respond as quickly.
Hope to hear from you!

  • Travel: I'm more of a homebody, but I do enjoy road trips. Nothing better than stopping at all the fun rest areas along the way, or using Atlas Obscura to find interesting things off the beaten path. I'd like to drive across the country in a camper someday.
  • Coffee: I actually don't like the taste of coffee but I love caffeine, so... I'm currently experimenting with pour-over brewing. Guess it's my quarantine project? I've been slowly piecing together the gear for it. If it doesn't pan out, there's always tea, right?
One other thing you might wanna know:
I find that I'm most sexually compatible with kinky, submissive women who can fuel my dominant side, but it's not critically important. I am not interested in "hotwifing"; If you need to be shared with other men, I am not the right guy for you. I'm also not bisexual, but it's perfectly fine with me if you are and want to explore that side of yourself. Lastly, I'm not interested in a "24/7 BDSM lifestyle" relationship. Outside the bedroom, I like my partner smart, independent, and capable.
I think that about covers it for now! If you're serious about meeting me in person, reach out to me and let's chat and set something up. Don't be timid!
Long-distance respondents: I'd love hearing from you, but only if you're willing to make a real effort to meet me after we talk and get to know one another. Ideally, you're in a position where you're able to relocate to Kansas City to live with me in a hypothetical future in which we're both committed and seriously into one another.
Please send me a message instead of using Reddit chat. Mobile apps don't do chat, so I won't be able to respond as quickly.
Hope to hear from you!

2020.09.25 20:52 Collateral_H_Damage So I indirectly ruined the CHD for everyone

Over the last few months, I have been vaguely aware of the CHD contract spat, as well as the subsequent disappointment regarding the podcast's new direction. Normally, I am a pretty private person, but I feel you, as loyal viewers, have suffered enough and could use some consolation. Having had prior dealings with the one known as Suitman, and being the creature of conscience that I am, I have decided to throw you guys a bone here...

Portrait of a bush league television executive named Peter Nelson, a meager little man who feeds off his self-delusions only to find himself perpetually hungry for want of woman in his diet. The year is 2016. Peter, not yet Suitman, is thirty-five, lonely, and choosing to spend much his time searching left and right on dating apps, hoping to find something to satisfy his hunger. He has his preferences, and they are set to seek out teenage girls. And with a job that entails a fair amount of travel, he is likely making connections with teenagers all across the country. Peter is a man who celebrates a summer birthday, so perhaps this type of arrangement serves him as a place of familiarity, a comfort zone of sorts, having always been among the oldest of his classmates growing up. Again, Peter Nelson, thirty-five-year-old executive in charge of HBO Sports, with the world as his oyster, spends his nights in a sewer of his own creating, chatting up and flirting with high schoolers and or high school aged girls by telephone. But in just a few short moments, Peter is to become victim to chance. Call it bad luck, call it a tough break, call it a personal visit from the commissioner of the karma police. Call it whatever you want, as it changes nothing. But do appreciate the gravity of the situation. For it will be in that exact point in time that a podcast yet to be conceptualized is stamped with an expiration date for the spring of 2020.
The year is 2017, and it is the final day of a long month. My girlfriend and I argue briefly, then separate. It has been over a year of living together and neither of us are all that happy about it. We go out to lunch and argue some more before separating again. Inspired, I work on edits for a lengthy manuscript twice abandoned. Towards the end of day, I receive a phone call. She is on her way home and hoping there will be a hot dinner ready and waiting. We eat and get along. Things are pleasant. She takes a bath, and we go to bed. I have been aware of the existence of one Peter Nelson for just under a week.
The season is winter, the year is 2020, and the night is not yet dark. My girlfriend and I are on our way home. We have recently moved into a new apartment, and I have chosen a longer route than anticipated to get there. But we are on a street with many bus stops and stop signs, and eventually a city park on the left that will lead us home. Minor bickering escalates briefly. Old talking points are brought up with some new stuff sprinkled in, including a picture of an unimpressive looking dog that is likely owned by one Peter Nelson. She is confused by my knowledge of such a picture, and I make up a good story. She then admits it is his dog, and I confirm an old theory. The price to pay is her reaching out to Peter to see if there was truth to the story. She had not communicated with him since he last messaged her on WhatsApp, out of the blue, informing her of his new girlfriend. An odd decision for a Harvard educated man, as his number had been blocked for months and making that kind of effort to share that kind of news was counterproductive to any possible objective. Perhaps those boasts about having easily cheated his way through college were not just confused attempts at false modesty. Either way, the choice to send a message about having a new girlfriend to a girl he was still obsessing over was one that was entirely his to make. The text sat in limbo for some time, as WhatsApp is not usually present on my girlfriend's phone. But, at long last, it was read and ignored.
It is an undisclosed date and time in the second half of the year 2016. Unbeknownst to me, a faraway HBO executive has just become enamored with my then nineteen-year-old girlfriend over a phone app, and in maybe five or six months from now, she will begin to slowly take notice of his feelings, also by phone. My girlfriend is what is known in today's dating scene as a “unicorn,” or in laymen's, an insanely attractive girl on dating apps predominately filled with average to ugly human beings desperately seeking. Incredibly desirable, exceedingly difficult to obtain, she flips the script by seeking next to nothing while looking next to nothing like the rest of the user population. Though we moved in together several months ago, her continued use of dating apps persists to this very indeterminate day. When she is careless enough to be caught, a fight ensues, one that always features her claiming the app is purely entertainment and accusing me of being controlling. Understanding that she's young and considered a "unicorn" but still hating her for it, I push back, though only so far. If a cord is struck, an app gets deleted for a time, only to return in the near future, the next time she is confronted with boredom. Already a tired argument, it will play on repeat without pause for another two years. And with each lap, with every repetition, she will, in my eyes, become more and more mundane, while continuing to be viewed and treated as something otherworldly by everyone else. The name Peter Nelson, will eventually become just another addition to a list of hundreds, distinguished only for working at HBO and by being vegan.
The year is now 2019. The place is my apartment. I am being forced to watch a YouTube video some girl made about a guy, who she chose not to mention by name, that is now dating a member of some podcast I have never heard of before. In the video, she claims to have been meeting up or dating this fellow off and on for about a year, maybe a little longer. The relationship and the video are all over the place, but its sounds like she cannot decide if he was a boyfriend or a father figure. It is unclear how far the relationship went, but it sounds like they were doing more things than friends typically do. I am growing more and more disinterested as the girl talks about how she was caught off guard by the new relationship and how she cannot believe he would date someone like the podcast girl based on how he presented himself to her. She feels used and led along, having spent time with this guy at art exhibits and museums, and I am still not interested. My girlfriend finally pauses the video and shows me the podcast girl, who she was able to identify through a quick scan of a mostly hostile comment section. I guess the contrast is supposed to be the podcast girl is loud, immature, and a bit raunchy whereas the girl in the video, despite being eighteen or nineteen, is quiet, sophisticated, and artsy. The younger girl’s age indicates about a twenty-year age gap between her and the man now dating the podcaster, which I deem disturbing, but I still do not really get any of this and eventually find a way out of the bedroom and into the kitchen.
It is 2018. Let's call it middle July. I am getting into coffee again, having not regularly consumed the stuff in a couple years. Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee is partly to blame for what my hysterical girlfriend is treating as a relapse. She currently holds a view that coffee is not healthy. I do not add sugar to coffee nor will I accept her outrageous claims as valid. The childish brat stoops rather low to tell me other people have sworn off coffee for her. "Other people" is actually one person, and the pledge to quit belongs to that same man, Peter O. Nelson, humble HBO executive with an affinity for all things lavender, who once promised a girl half his age, halfway across the country, that he would disavow coffee, just for her. While I doubt he actually gave up coffee, I would never put it past him. This is the same bizarre individual that tried desperately, and on separate occasions, to get flowers and room service to her under the pretense that she was visiting New York City. And this is the same pathetic person who continued trying to court a stranger after being stood up by her on his birthday, in his reality last minute, the entire way in actuality, with four ballet tickets in his pocket, the other two being for Mr. and Mrs. Nelson of course.
Judgement over that last detail should be reserved. After all, it is not totally unheard of to meet someone's parents on a first date, especially when giving consideration to the age of girls the head of HBO Sports seeks out on dating platforms. Dare I say, it is downright considerate, and likely very comforting for the young girl, fresh out of or nearing graduation from high school. She can probably take a deep breath and let her guard down a little, since he showed her he has his parents. This is just like being on a date with a classmate. Everything is fine. Everything will be fine.
It is the end of 2017. Time of day: morning. The pile of broken stone that is my relationship has reached a juncture where trust is rationed like water in time of drought. My girlfriend is in New Jersey and only a two-hour drive to Manhattan, home to a long list of Peters, Davids, and Ryans, that she knows, all in endless pursuit of the same thing. I get the call I was half expecting. She wants to extend her trip a couple weeks and come back right after New Year’s Day. This is an outrage. There is only one conclusion to be drawn. She has made plans and to hell with me. I tell her as much before throwing both her pets into crates, the crates then into a car, and driving to the nearest shelter. An empty threat that gets her heading home on the double. The next few weeks should simply be categorized as ugly, and best glossed over. But, out from the pit emerges a link forged. A bond is rebuilt. Meanwhile, a small window of opportunity begins to permanently shut.
The year is 2018. The recurring rejections and date cancellations have done nothing to prevent future invitations to a Dave Chappelle stand-up, Barclays Center, and vegan restaurants like abcV and Double Zero. No, HBO executive Peter Nelson was not one to let something trivial like dignity or a basic sense of decorum get in the way of unhealthy obsession. Eventually, my girlfriend grew either a conscience or fatigued by the stench of desperation that accompanied each message from him, which were starting to be read as pleas rather than idle conversation. This was endgame. And in this way Peter was not unique. And like so many of his pedestal-placing predecessors, he searched for something to explain his position and to rationalize why this girl would pass him by without a care in the world. He decided a long-winded profession of love might save him. Sincere maybe, but too pathetic to endear himself to anyone. She told him she was dating someone. He likely already knew. In any event, he did not understand how that was relevant to his obsession with her, so she blocked him on one number and then another. And then another. The former number one contender was now a punchline.
Completed picture of one Peter Nelson, age thirty-nine, vice-president in charge of HBO sports, for a few more weeks, anyway. Successful in most things, just not in the one effort that all men hope to be. And also, not in being at the helm of his network’s now-defunct boxing broadcasts. At his core, he is a curious man with a broken heart, an overcompensating malcontent, reduced in rank, always in search of an opportunity to vent his frustrations and reimagine his lonely childhood. Collectively, he is known as Suitman, and though on the surface that moniker appears to be a term of endearment, in actuality it is just an abbreviation, worn as a cloak to hide what he really is. In reality, he is and always shall be Suitorman. Well camouflaged, subservient, and lurking around every corner, Suitorman will always be with us. So long as teenage girls in search of compliment exist, he and his ilk will be waiting for their window, for a chance to make up for feeling like a lonely loser in high school, more than half a lifetime ago.

Thank you for reading. Enjoy your weekend everyone!
And watch out for Suitorman.

2020.09.25 14:36 VisibleConfusion69 Open Letter to Steve Huffman and the Board of Directors of Reddit, Inc- If you believe in standing up to hate and supporting black lives, you need to act

Open Letter to Steve Huffman and the Board of Directors of Reddit, Inc – If you believe in standing up to hate and supporting black lives, you need to act
Dear Steve,
On June 1, you shared a letter on Reddit’s blog “Remember the Human – Black Lives Matter”. In this letter, you claim “as Snoos, we do not tolerate hate, racism, and violence, and while we have work to do to fight these on our platform, our values are clear.”
As of today, neither you nor any other Reddit admins have shared this letter anywhere on reddit.com. However, the response to this message was swift on Twitter, where you were rightfully labeled as hypocritical based on your long and well-recorded history of defending racism and white supremacy on this site.
Among the many responses was this message from former CEO of Reddit, Ellen Pao.
I am obligated to call you out: You should have shut down the_donald instead of amplifying it and its hate, racism, and violence. So much of what is happening now lies at your feet. You don't get to say BLM when reddit nurtures and monetizes white supremacy and hate all day long
Many others shared links and screenshots of your past statements saying “Open racism and slurs are fine to post on Reddit”.
The problem of Reddit’s leadership supporting and providing a platform for racist users and hateful communities has long been an issue. Nearly six years ago, dozens of subreddits signed the original open letter to the Reddit admins calling for action. While the Reddit admins acknowledged the letter and said it was a high priority to address this issue, extremely little has been done in the intervening years.
On June 5, you shared this update on /Announcements, Upcoming changes to our content policy, our board, and where we’re going from here. In the post, you stated that there is a need for continued adjustments of Reddit’s content policy to address racism and that this remains a priority. These continued statements that you hear us, that this is a priority, or that you are working on it are not enough. It has been five years since your return as CEO and this still remains Reddit’s most glaring problem.
Steve, if you and Reddit genuinely care about the values of standing up to racism and hate, then you need to back it up with real action. As moderators on this website who have dedicated countless hours to keeping this site running, we call on Reddit to take the following steps:
At /AgainstHateSubreddits, we have laid out the many failures of Steve time and again to stand up to white supremacy on this site time and time and time again.
With a website with the impact of Reddit on the broader conversations being held in communities around the world, this website needs real leadership and real action.
We hope that Reddit will not just share empty platitudes — but will take a meaningful stand against hate, and take these recommendations to heart.
This letter is co-signed by more than 200 300 350 430 550 650 800 communities representing well over 200 hundreds of millions of subscribers:

2020.09.24 06:28 memesandcommunism LETTER TO REDDIT CEO

Open Letter to Steve Huffman and the Board of Directors of Reddit, Inc– If you believe in standing up to hate and supporting black lives, you need to act
Open Letter to Steve Huffman and the Board of Directors of Reddit, Inc – If you believe in standing up to hate and supporting black lives, you need to act
Dear Steve,
On June 1, you shared a letter on Reddit’s blog “Remember the Human – Black Lives Matter”. In this letter, you claim “as Snoos, we do not tolerate hate, racism, and violence, and while we have work to do to fight these on our platform, our values are clear.”
As of today, neither you nor any other Reddit admins have shared this letter anywhere on reddit.com. However, the response to this message was swift on Twitter, where you were rightfully labeled as hypocritical based on your long and well-recorded history of defending racism and white supremacy on this site.
Among the many responses was this message from former CEO of Reddit, Ellen Pao.
I am obligated to call you out: You should have shut down the_donald instead of amplifying it and its hate, racism, and violence. So much of what is happening now lies at your feet. You don't get to say BLM when reddit nurtures and monetizes white supremacy and hate all day long
Many others shared links and screenshots of your past statements saying “Open racism and slurs are fine to post on Reddit”.
The problem of Reddit’s leadership supporting and providing a platform for racist users and hateful communities has long been an issue. Nearly six years ago, dozens of subreddits signed the original open letter to the Reddit admins calling for action. While the Reddit admins acknowledged the letter and said it was a high priority to address this issue, extremely little has been done in the intervening years.
On June 5, you shared this update on /Announcements, Upcoming changes to our content policy, our board, and where we’re going from here. In the post, you stated that there is a need for continued adjustments of Reddit’s content policy to address racism and that this remains a priority. These continued statements that you hear us, that this is a priority, or that you are working on it are not enough. It has been five years since your return as CEO and this still remains Reddit’s most glaring problem.
Steve, if you and Reddit genuinely care about the values of standing up to racism and hate, then you need to back it up with real action. As moderators on this website who have dedicated countless hours to keeping this site running, we call on Reddit to take the following steps:
At /AgainstHateSubreddits, we have laid out the many failures of Steve time and again to stand up to white supremacy on this site time and time and time again.
With a website with the impact of Reddit on the broader conversations being held in communities around the world, this website needs real leadership and real action.
We hope that Reddit will not just share empty platitudes — but will take a meaningful stand against hate, and take these recommendations to heart.
This letter is co-signed by more than 200 300 350 430 550 650 800 communities representing well over 200 hundreds of millions of subscribers:

2020.09.23 01:47 Leather_Term Revealed: Bill Clinton’s Intimate Secret Dinner With Ghislaine Maxwell

thedailybeast.com Sep. 22, 2020
The former president invited Ghislaine Maxwell to a cozy dinner in L.A. in 2014, years after she had been accused by a victim of procuring girls for Epstein’s sex ring.
After a star-studded gala in February 2014, Bill Clinton and his entourage headed to a vegan restaurant in Los Angeles for an intimate dinner with friends.
Their destination was Crossroads Kitchen, a Melrose Avenue hotspot that counts Beyoncé, Christina Applegate, and Katy Perry as fans, and features a menu with artichoke “oysters,” hearts of palm “crab cakes” and tagliatelle “bolognese.” That night, the restaurant was bustling. One insider spotted producer Jerry Bruckheimer and actor Bruce Willis, while TMZ recorded actor Sean Penn gliding through the front door.
Producer Steve Bing—Clinton’s friend, major Democratic donor, and investor in the restaurant who died by suicide this year—was already there waiting for the former president.
Former Clinton staffers Ben Schwerin, a future Snapchat executive, and then-talent agent Michael Kives were also invited to the swanky soiree.
But two other unlikely guests joined the party that night: British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell—accused of procuring underage girls for sex-trafficker Jeffrey Epstein—and tech CEO Scott Borgerson, now rumored to be her husband.
According to information obtained by The Daily Beast, Clinton’s advance team secured seating for the invitees and specifically noted Maxwell and someone named “Scott” had RSVP’d for the Thursday gathering.
Multiple sources with knowledge of the situation say aides had squabbled over Maxwell’s invitation beforehand due to her links to Epstein. Even to this day, Clinton insiders continue to point fingers over who should be blamed for Maxwell’s addition to the event.
The sources told The Daily Beast that longtime Clinton gatekeeper Doug Band cut Maxwell out of the president’s network in 2011 before he left Clinton’s employ the following year. (Band flew on Epstein’s private jet, including for Clinton’s 2002 humanitarian trip to Africa, and was listed in Epstein’s Little Black Book.)
Information obtained by The Daily Beast indicates Jon Davidson, Clinton’s deputy chief of staff, knew Maxwell was attending the 2014 dinner, which he helped to organize. Davidson did not return messages seeking comment.
“This is an intimate dinner with Clinton in L.A.,” said one source who was disturbed by the decision. “Think of all the people he knows in L.A., and Ghislaine gets to attend.”
Schwerin told The Daily Beast he has no recollection or record of being at the dinner, while Kives said he did not attend and has never met Maxwell or noticed her at other Clinton dinners.
Angel Ureña, a spokesman for Clinton, declined to comment and referred The Daily Beast to a statement he issued in 2019:
“President Clinton knows nothing about the terrible crimes Jeffrey Epstein pleaded guilty to in Florida some years ago, or those with which he has been recently charged in New York. In 2002 and 2003, President Clinton took a total of four trips on Jeffrey Epstein’s airplane: one to Europe, one to Asia, and two to Africa, which included stops in connection with the work of the Clinton Foundation. Staff, supporters of the Foundation, and his Secret Service detail traveled on every leg of every trip. He had one meeting with Epstein in his Harlem office in 2002, and around the same time made one brief visit to Epstein’s New York apartment with a staff member and his security detail. He’s not spoken to Epstein in well over a decade, and has never been to Little St. James Island, Epstein’s ranch in New Mexico, or his residence in Florida.”
One friend of the Clintons told The Daily Beast that Ghislaine was close to Clinton and daughter Chelsea, went backstage at Clinton Global Initiative events, and even visited their homes. The source said the Clintons should take responsibility for spending time with Maxwell, who allegedly offered the Clintons hotel stays, air travel, and other largesse.
“It’s always someone else’s fault, it’s always not true,” the friend said. “They’re always fighting against the reporting and not that they did it. That’s the problem.”
By the time of the Crossroads dinner, the press had widely reported on Epstein’s abuse of girls at his mansion in Palm Beach, Florida, and lawsuits filed by victims of his trafficking scheme.
Claims of Maxwell’s involvement were known to Clinton staffers in 2011, when the Daily Mail reported on survivor Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who said Epstein and Maxwell trafficked her to Prince Andrew when she was 17. The report included a photograph of the British royal posing with Giuffre at Maxwell’s London home. In the picture, Maxwell smiles in the background as Andrew grips Giuffre’s bare waist.
It’s unclear why Maxwell was reintroduced into Clinton’s circle—at least for one cozy meatless dinner in Los Angeles on Feb. 27, 2014.
The night of the dinner, one person remembered Borgerson in particular because he wasn’t Ted Waitt, Maxwell’s ex-boyfriend and the billionaire Gateway co-founder. Waitt is a friend and supporter of the Clinton family, donating at least $10 million to the Clinton Foundation. “She had dated Ted Waitt for some time, so for her to go to a dinner like that, with someone who’s not Ted, was indicative that things moved on,” the source added.
TMZ reported Clinton dined with Penn that night but didn't mention any of the other boldfaced names. The gossip site published video footage of Clinton slipping into the back of the restaurant after a Secret Service motorcade parked, and of Penn striding through the entrance, ignoring a stringer’s questions about meeting Bill.
Hours earlier, the men rubbed elbows at the Unite4:Humanity gala at a Sony Pictures Studios lot, where singer Demi Lovato and other celebrities took selfies with the former president. Clinton, who received a “unity recognition award,” was the keynote speaker.
Clinton flew to New York the next morning, but Maxwell stayed in California. Three days after the group dinner with Clinton, Maxwell attended the Vanity Fair Oscar bash in West Hollywood, where a photographer snapped her with Elon Musk (who, in response to Twitter critics, claimed he was photobombed).
Another source with long ties to Clinton told The Daily Beast they were relieved Page Six or another outlet didn't catch wind of the gathering.
In 2014, Maxwell worked to reinvent herself through her oceans nonprofit, the TerraMar Project, and was photographed at a slew of society parties. She jet-setted to Alaska for the Iditarod, and spoke at a UN roundtable, Google’s Ocean Agenda conference, and a TEDx conference in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Maxwell, now awaiting trial for perjury and grooming girls for Epstein, was friendly with the Clinton clan for years. She had a front-row seat at Chelsea Clinton's wedding in 2010, reportedly as Waitt’s plus-one, at the Astor Courts estate in Rhinebeck, New York. Maxwell, Chelsea, and husband Marc Mezvinsky “flew together on a private plane to rendezvous with Waitt for a trip on Waitt’s yacht” around that time, Politico reported.
Last year, a spokeswoman for Chelsea told CNN the former first daughter was only acquainted with Maxwell because of Waitt.
Still, Maxwell’s ties to the Clintons run deeper. As The Daily Beast previously revealed, Maxwell and Epstein attended a reception at the White House during Clinton’s presidency. Bill and Hillary Clinton hosted the 1993 event for donors to the White House Historical Association, which funded Oval Office renovations including gold draperies and a new rug.
Maxwell’s dubious charity, the Max Foundation, showed a $2,500 contribution to the “Clinton Library and Foundation” in 2003. And in 2002 and 2003, the socialite traveled with the former president when he took trips on Epstein’s plane throughout Asia and Africa. Maxwell also flew from Miami to Westchester County, New York, with a group that included Epstein, Clinton, Secret Service agents and Sarah Kellen, Epstein’s personal assistant and alleged accomplice.
In 2009, one attorney for Epstein victims hired an investigator to serve Maxwell with a subpoena as she schmoozed at the Clinton Global Initiative Annual Meeting in New York. “To say she was upset about being publicly served at this function is an understatement,” attorney Brad Edwards wrote in his book.
Clinton isn't the only high-profile politician under fire over ties to Epstein and Maxwell.
President Donald Trump palled around with Epstein in the '90s and at least until 2002, when he called the hedge-funder a “terrific guy” in an interview with New York.
“I’ve known Jeff for fifteen years. Terrific guy. He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it—Jeffrey enjoys his social life,” Trump told the magazine.
In 1992, Trump held a “calendar girl” competition at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, and Epstein was reportedly the only guest.
The same year, Epstein and Trump were videotaped at what appears to be a different party at Trump’s private club. Found in NBC archives, the footage was for a talk-show profile on Trump’s new life as a divorcee. The men ogle women on the dance floor, and Trump apparently tells Epstein, "Look at her, back there. ... She's hot." Epstein smiles and nods before collapsing into giggles after Trump whispers something in his ear.
Jane Doe, one survivor of Epstein’s sex ring, said the financier introduced her to Trump in 1994, when she was 14 years old. Her lawsuit said Epstein “elbowed Trump playfully” before asking, “This is a good one, right?”
“Trump smiled and nodded in agreement,” Doe’s complaint alleges. “They both chuckled and Doe felt uncomfortable, but, at the time, was too young to understand why.” (Doe does not accuse Trump of any misconduct.)
Epstein and Trump “were good friends,” Epstein’s brother Mark told the Washington Post, adding that Trump flew on Epstein’s plane “numerous times.” The financier’s address book contains multiple entries for Trump and now-First Lady Melania.
The men supposedly had a falling out over real estate in 2004, when Epstein tried to outbid Trump in a bankruptcy auction for the Palm Beach mansion of nursing home magnate Abe Gosman, according to the Post.
Three years later, Page Six reported Epstein was banned from Mar-a-Lago.
Trump also apparently hobnobbed with Maxwell. At a COVID press conference in July, Trump told reporters he met Maxwell “numerous times over the years” but couldn’t answer whether he thought the beleaguered socialite would spill dirt on other famous people accused of partaking in Epstein’s trafficking scheme.
“I don’t know. I haven’t been following it too much,” Trump said. “I just wish her well, frankly. I’ve met her numerous times over the years, especially since I lived in Palm Beach. I guess they lived in Palm Beach. But I wish her well, whatever it is.”

2020.09.21 20:54 foxyfoxfunn HELP with Quarantine Dining Hall situation

EDIT: UCONN HAS JUST ANNOUNCED THAT TOWERS WILL BE OPENING TOMORROW I have not gotten a response back from the Dean of Students, though even if this did or did not have any impact on that decision, im pretty happy that they're considering these types of things anyway. Thanks guys :)
▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️
Hey guys,
I don't know if any of you have been in quarantine up here at Storrs, but right now Eddy building is having trouble getting to Buckley. Also, I know of some people in North West struggling too.
Me and some of my floormates are writing emails to the Dean of Students for getting accessibile food to people in quarantine. They've already told us to "suck it up" essentially, but I'm writing an email back.
If you are in quarantine and would like to eat better, dm me and I'll CC you. If you were in quarantine, and it was a pain to go to Buckley 3 times a day, dm me and I'll CC you. If you've never been in quarantine but would like help out, dm me and I'll CC
These things need volume. I'd also take any input.
Attached is the email exchange, and the draft of the reply.
➖➖➖Original Email to Dean of Students:➖➖➖
To whom it may concern,
Hello! My name is X and I am a 6th floor resident of Eddy Residence hall. I am writing to address some concerns about the dining hall situation.
As you may know, people who are in quarantine are expected to get their meals from Buckley Dining Hall on East Campus. The girls on 6th floor Eddy have had 2 weeks to grow accustomed to this. Now that there is a second two week quarantine (that was given the day we were supposed to be let off the first one), it is even harder to get food. I have personally asked people in this building to grab me some dinner from South Dining Hall and leave it outside, or just eat what I have on hand, though now that we are all stuck in the same boat, that is a little more difficult.
Yes, Eddy is within walking distance to Buckley, but that means taking an hour+ out of our day to get our meals, and frankly, I rarely do that. Classes have started to pick up, and taking time to walk to a Covid-contact dining hall, even when most of us have had multiple negative tests, seems uncertain and unnecessary.
One other aspect to consider is that some of my floor-mates have dietary preferences/restrictions that have been harder to maneuver while being limited only to Buckley. One of the girls on my floor is vegan, and attached were her options for today (see bottom). Assuming you have the value plan ($3,010 dollars a semester), and considering the start dates, August 14th to November 20th (98 days); breakfast potatoes, oatmeal hot cereal, and some strudel bites are the daily equivalent to $30.71. Quarantine or not, this should not be acceptable.
I can propose a couple solutions to this; the simplest being something along the lines of an out-door grab and go with pre-made meals from South Dining Hall. This seems doable, but if there are any other ideas that would make things easier, that would be great.
This is on behalf of anyone who's struggling to find time to eat during their quarantines, and I hope a solution can be made.
Thank you,
-6th Floor Eddy
➖➖➖➖Reply from Dean of Students:➖➖➖➖
Dear X
Thank you for reaching out with your concerns about the dining options in Buckley. I am copying my colleague who can address the concerns related to the menu items and dining specific questions.
In terms of the challenges of having one dining unit for students in quarantine this is a decision made in conjunction with our SHaW medical team. Having one location specified for students in quarantine helps to insure that those individuals are not interacting with students not in quarantine. The goal is to keep our campus open and student safety is a priority. I realize this creates challenges for those in quarantine but it is hopefully for a limited period of time.
I am sure Dennis or someone from his team will be in contact soon about your dining specific questions.
Sincerely, Maureen
➖➖➖➖➖➖Drafted Reply:➖➖➖➖➖➖
Hello again,
I appreciate the response back.
Since I have sent the first email, I found out that others in quarantine all over campus are having the same problems, particularly at Northwest and Towers. This is a campus-wide issue, considering that many people (including and not limited to an entire residence building) are sharing the same conflicts. I've gotten word from some people in the North West Residence Halls who have been skipping meals because going out in the cold in this weather isn't a proper idea, especially when all of the dorms on campus are maintaining a modest temperature of 50-60 degrees Fahrenheit. Priorities become keeping warm, especially when a dorm room is the only place people in quarantine are allowed to be (other than the covid-contact dining hall a 20+ minute walk away).
I can guarantee that comparing the amount of people signed up to eat at Buckley and the amount that actually show up are completely disproportionate to the other, more accessible dining halls. There are facts out there that prove people aren't getting enough to eat, and surely not what we're paying for.
There are schools like NYU and many others that have had room delivery service to those who were in quarantine. Though that would be great, that is not what we are asking. We are asking for reasonable food accessibility. Whether that be another building devoted to feeding those in quarantine, or a delivery service, or really anything else, that would be enough. All that I can say is that having only 1 dining hall open for all people in quarantine isn't the solution.
Fact is, since I have been in quarantine for the last two weeks (and looking forward to two more), I have lost roughly 5 pounds. And a girl I know in North West has lost close to 10. Yes, there is a dining hall being provided. Yes, I could choose to get up and make the walk. But I can guarantee the check-ins at Buckley show that a large population of those in quarantine don't.
I asked around, and some people said they only made it to Buckley a few times, they've been so busy. Parents and students are angry their $3000+ is going to waste. I hate to be that person, but Maureen, I'm sure you have a kitchen to walk to. I'm sure your place is warm. If it isn't, then maybe you do understand our perspectives a bit more.
This isn't a fun complaint to make, but many students all over campus are experiencing the same things, and that realization prompted this email exchange.
Once again, I really hope a solution can be made.
-6th floor Eddy et al.

2020.09.14 01:44 redditlafs Coronavirus putting everything into perspective- advice needed!

Hey everyone! So, like many on here, our April 2021 wedding looks like it will be impossible. We're Australians but our wedding is/was supposed to be in New Zealand, and it's still unclear if we'd have to quarantine on either side ($2000 for hotel quarantine...) or if we'll even be allowed in!
The NZ wedding is amazing 😍 It's a 4 day wedding over a 3 day long weekend, so Friday is the welcome dinner, Saturday is the wedding, Sunday is the cruise with burger dinner and BBQ brunch, Monday is the farewell pancake brunch. We're getting married beside a lake with snow covered mountains in the background, taking a boat across the lake for photos in the nature reserve, we're having a hāngi (traditional NZ food) as our welcome dinner, we've got such delicious cakes arranged (sticky feijoa cake, lamington cake, carrot cake, vegan brownies), a vintage bus to take all our guests to and from the wedding and cruise, great photographers, and the group accommodation is so nice. It's been so much planning and effort but it's all slotted into place perfectly.
Unfortunately, getting to NZ without a quarantine period is looking unlikely. Hotel quarantine is paid out of our own pockets ($2000) and we can't ask our guests to sacrifice 2 weeks just to go to a wedding. We're considering moving everything to 2022, but as I'm slowly looking at all our plans, it's dawning on me the amount we're spending. So far we've sunk AU$7,000 into the wedding on deposits and outfits, and we'll have another AU$21,000 to pay. We originally wanted a wedding under AU$10,000 but everything added up so fast and we couldn't find anywhere or anything to cut or skrimp on. If we cancel there's nothing extra we need to pay but we lose the deposits, and if we postpone there's just inflation costs.
I suppose what I'm wanting to get advice on, is, should we just throw in the towel for the NZ wedding and plan our wedding here in Australia? The biggest issue I have is location. There's only 2 places in our region I like and one doesn't have our date available (we could consider other dates though) and the other is $$$. Outside of our region would mean travel and potential quarantine, which I'm trying to avoid. It's also incredibly humid the further north you go which I hate. We can no longer afford a 2021 wedding (thanks coronavirus) without taking out loans, so it'd still be a 2022 wedding, just here and not in NZ. So should we even bother changing to an Australian location?
The other option is to elope. We have pressure from EVERYONE to elope (my mum, his dads, some of my friends) but I want a "big" celebration and all the fuss and fun. Finding a place to elope is also a headache, as it seems the only info available is through a paid service and I was wanting something more DIY. I feel like it wouldn't be "special" anymore if it's just a small group or just us two. Where we live is also mainly bushland and I would prefer on a mountain top or somewhere snowy which is impossible here in QLD.
I'd really like opinions and advice please!

2020.09.10 13:12 TableIn Effective Steps that Lead to Improved Planning

Planning ahead is essential in the smooth running of any restaurant but it often involves a lot of guesswork as you don’t know what guests are going to order before they arrive. Being able to gather information about guest’s preferences before they arrive has been a lifeline for many restaurants that use the Tablein service.
CUSTOMER STORY Uoksas, Lithuania Before we had the opportunity to find out about our guest’s preferences for menu choices, we were constantly facing unnecessary difficulties in management for resource and team planning, which would ultimately affect our guest services.
THE PROBLEM​ Complications in Planning Ahead Dinners with a choice of tasting menu are extremely trendy in our restaurant. The exact list of dishes on the menu is dynamic, depending on seasonality and the creative ideas of our professional chef Artūras Naidenko. To create a constantly changing, fresh and exciting experience each time, we don’t set the exact dishes in advance. However, we must pay attention to special requests and adapt the menu accordingly (e.g. intolerances, allergies). It was messy and time-consuming to write everything down on the pages of our journal and their was always a risk that mistakes could be made. The tasting menu, which is not only prepared but also introduced to guests by the chef himself, is available solely with a reservation. We often found that many guests were unaware of the reservation process so they would turn up on the night, only to be disappointed and presented with an à la carte menu to choose from. An unhappy occasion for the guests and for us as we would often be unable to accommodate them last minute. We were unable to predict the guest flow for the evening ahead which resulted in difficult organization of the staff timesheet. The situation in the kitchen would become especially tense when the restaurant was fully booked and all the guests were sharing different picks both from the tasting menu and à la carte. THE SOLUTION Collecting More Information About our Guests Through an Online Reservation Service We constantly observe the practice of restaurants at home and abroad with the aim of bettering ourselves when it comes to our food, quality, and the service we provide. It didn’t take us long to understand that we urgently needed an online reservation tool, which would simplify our internal processes massively. We especially wanted functionality that allowed us to get as much information as possible about the guests (and their expectations) before they arrive. All of our requirements were fulfilled by Tablein and we soon integrated their system for the management of our restaurant reservations.
THE RESULT Much Smoother Advance Preparation and a Better Teamwork Experience Throughout our Restaurant 100% of all reservations in our restaurant are now carried out online via the Tablein system. This tool allows us to foresee the restaurant flow and know which menu each guest is choosing. By using extensive Tablein functions, we now ask our guests to fill in a bit more information online when they book. We offer the option of selecting not only the date, time, and number of people for their booking, but also a choice of our menus is presented too (brunch, à la carte, 4-course tasting menu or 6-course tasting menu). To make it clear for our guests, we’ve uploaded the menu cards for each pick so they can see what each menu involves. On top of this, we ask if our guests will be interested in the wine pairing that we offer. Now, the intentions of our guests are known in advance, and we can prepare for them to our best abilities. A significant field in the table reservation form for us is the one that takes details of any special requests (vegetarian/vegan or food allergies). If it is filled out ahead of time then we can quickly and flexibly adapt our regular offers to the preferences provided (e.g., prepare a vegetarian tasting menu or a dish without an ingredient that causes an allergic reaction). It is essential to us that all of the information about our guests, and their reservation, is displayed to us in an organised and clear fashion. Now we can entirely avoid mistakes of the past that were caused by illegible handwriting or confused notes across our booking pages (especially when we have a large group of people and every guest has a different request!). Easy online reservations are not only appealing to our guests but have become extremely important for our restaurant. These days we are able to know the flow ahead of time, and prepare for it by optimising our resources. We can organise our kitchen and dining hall staff according to need and stock our kitchen with the optimal amount of ingredients leading to less wastage. ADVICES Top Tip by Uoksas Tablein system offers many beneficial functions and we strongly suggest utilising the ones that are most suitable for your restaurant, as much as you can! After implementing these features, accepting reservations, serving guests, and organizing the work in the kitchen, will become smoother than you ever knew possible.

2020.09.08 01:16 davidpcbn Corn Soup and the Pillowfluff

Laurie had spent some time in hospital. The head wound and concussion was pretty serious but then it was like other problems popped up.
She was malnourished and underweight, a thyroid problem had been identified.
She was finally getting the long delayed treatment for her anxiety attacks and her high blood pressure.
She was in longer than she thought she would be. The hospital food was terrible, but it was far more varied than what she would normally eat.
She knew that she’d have to face reality once she left. She had been let go from her cleaning position. Despite being self-employed, everyone knew what happened.
The foals in the sack that Timmy had brought back caused a shitstorm of controversy.
Very little of the foals survived the experience and then the survivors were dropped off at a shelter.
No one knew which baby belonged to which adult fluffy. This was the easy solution.
And then there was the centre. A trail of pure destruction. A lot of fluffies dead and a lot of unhappy owners. Who had also lost a lot of foals.
They wanted someone physical to blame. Their anger at their loss was palpable, they had lost their investments, their pets, toys, their friends.
It ultimately led back to Laurie. It was her fault. Timmy wasn’t around to face up to it.
And Timmy was gone now. He had a heart attack in the garden after tangling with Mr Morrison.
And Laurie was alone now.
She was discharged from hospital and she realised that she couldn’t face the bar job. The story had made the local news. Imagine the gossip at work.
But she was tired, she wanted to sleep. The bar job could wait. And if they didn’t want to wait they’d fire her. Did it really matter? Her life felt like it was over.
Timmy.
For all the trouble he brought he was like an anchor that kept her grounded.
Or weighed down. She wasn’t sure what to describe it as.
Her husband was dead, but she had the kids. But then Rachel left.
And Timmy was all that was left, as he had always been. The one constant in her life. If she could live she would live for Timmy.
Everything else had gone.
She laid down in her bedroom and just wanted to sleep. She had seen the people point and laugh. She felt a great sense of shame. Some people even cheered out to say how much they loved her son for doing that to the fluffies. He was all over 4chan as a hero, a slayer or fluffies.
At least someone could love him.
She stayed in bed for days. To get up and be awake was to be alive and to face things and she didn’t want that.
She missed Bloomy. Someone who was always happy to see her. What Timmy did to him to “raise” him and keep him in such filth, it disgusted her. Sheer neglect in filth.
But she managed to raise him and care for him to be a more normal, if damaged fluffy. A victory of sorts, that this was proof that she could care for something and for it to love her back. And repair something broken.
But fluffies love regardless, they’re ultimately toys who respond to the right type of stimulus.
But boy, she really missed hugging Bloomy. He loved her warm Huggies, she used to breathe in the smell of his soft fur when clean and feel the slight and slow beat of his heart.
Though they’re not real they fill a void that is missing in one's life. That love is important regardless of it being artificial or organic. If you felt love of any kind you could live.
Hell, she did better with fluffies than her own two children. She felt disappointed in herself.
After 3 days she could no longer bear the hunger pains. She had to eat. She passed Timmy’s wretched room. The smell was awful, it was like he wasn’t gone.
She went downstairs and found a bare minimum of food that was now out of date. She opened the freezer and found the fouled and filthy packets of foal tendies that Timmy crapped on to procure.
Wow. Who lets their child do that. Sure he’s an adult but wow imagine telling someone they did that.
The foal tendies were binned. All of them as they should’ve been kept in the dumpster. She didn’t want to see anymore foal tendies or buy them. She could understand Rachel’s vegetarianism. Or was she vegan? She had no idea. She hadn’t seen her in so long. She’d be leaving school soon. She wondered what she would consider doing.
Laurie sat in her garden and checked the envelope with her cash. The last of her wages and payments. Maybe she would have to go to work tonight. For food money. She didn’t know how she could do it and face those people at the bar. She was so tired it had finally hit her. Had she been running on adrenaline all this time?
And then she caught a smell in the air. Cooking. It smelt sweet but not overly. Popcorn? She knew where it had come from. Was this for his fluffies?
She walked to the fence and she was greeted by Mr Morrison. He waved to her and walked to the fence. The fluffies he was raising and training had been freshly weaned and followed him to the fence.
Laurie smiled weakly at the fluffies. The fluffies all looked up at her and asked for huggies and if she wanted to play with them and if they had nummies as Daddeh was being mean as he had cooked nummies but not given them any.
Mr Morrison hushed them back and told them to go over to the damn table. He would feed them soon.
Laurie smelt the air again. What was that? She was sure that she had something that smelt like that once.
“Corn Soup”, Mr Morrison replied. It was a sweetish treat that fluffies liked but one that was used to clean out their intestinal tract healthily. A human food that could be made fresh and simply in a pot boiler.
He offered Laurie some for dinner. He had noticed her mouth drooling at the thought.
“So long as I can do something with the little guys” Laurie replied back.
She had noticed a shed that had been built. It had a giant hole for the fluffies to go in and out of and some openings like windows. It looked quite new, she had never seen it before.
“I’ve built an outhouse for the fluffies to go and crap in. I figured it would advance their training”, Mr Morrison had said. “They’ll feel a lot more cleared out when they pump their crap into that later”. He began to laugh.
It was a cool day out and nice enough to eat out in. Mr Morrison brought the pot out and began to scoop out portions for the weaned foals to eat.
There was a chorus of “tank oo daddeh fo nummies” once the soup was poured in. It was cool enough for them to eat.
Mr Morrison poured out a bowl for Laurie who began to drink it. The bowl had emptied.
Mr Morrison looked at her, “more?”
“Yes please, more….”
She remembered the last time she had any was as a child. It was a soothing meal, much like the way Rachel liked Buttered Noodles. Soul food.
Mr Morrison needed to feed some other fluffies. He pointed to a window and a fluffy was looking out. A pillowfluff. It looked like it was humming something or singing. But it looked sad too. He asked Laurie to take a bowl in and feed the pillowfluff.
Her name was Daisy. She was an alicorn that had been used for breeding, abused when she had accidentally killed her own foals out of fear of an alicorn baby and had then had her limbs, legs and horn removed.
She had a rough life and she was repeatedly bred until she only miscarried. What a way to treat something like that.
Mr Morrison looked angry. He recalled the asshole who originally owned her had brought her for training, hadn’t listened when told what steps to take and then had his girlfriend or whatever ask him to teach the fluffy not to miscarry. All because he saw dollars that could be potentially made from it and he had no clue about raising fluffies beyond money and letting them fuck.
The girlfriend had left the fluffy in his care. She never came back for it. He was going to euthanize her, but decided against it. He felt partly responsible for the way Daisy ended up. She could be given a comfortable home looking out of the window watching the world go by. Treated with a bit of TLC as he said.
“Tender loving care?” Laurie asked.
“No, Total Logistic Control. A pillowfluff that’s fed correctly, kept clean, kept clean of poopies, comfortable and is preoccupied with the world outside beyond its own inward world is a happy fluffy regardless. They just require more attention and more input to be happy. Think of it more as consistent maintenance.”
Laurie was given her orders on how to treat Daisy and she went upstairs with a bowl of corn soup and a cleaning kit. Fresh litter was kept upstairs to be used once she opened her bowels.
The fluffy had been looking out of the window. She had observed the little foals playing and wished she could run with them. She had also looked up at the birds flying in the sky. She wished she had her wings to fly with them too.
Laurie carefully turned the fluffy around and greeted her. Daisy asked her if she was her new mummeh. Laurie laughed and said that she came up to give her nummies but she needed to be cleaned first. Daisy agreed dolefully. She didn’t like the cleaning process.
Laurie applied the cleaning spray and the comb to clean through the mane and the fur. Laurie then cleaned the tail and retied it back into a knot to stop the crap clinging to it and seeping deeply into the tail. A common problem of all fluffies.
And then came the tricky part. Daisy had been humming along nicely from the attention. Laurie had to shave Daisy’s ass. A shaved ass was much easier to clean than one that wasn’t. Laurie cleaned the anal cavity with a cleaning bud q-tip and some water. Daisy began to complain about her poopy place and she didn’t want it to be sore or hurty.
And then came the part that Daisy hated. But never remembered and was never prepared for. Laurie applied the cream and began to use the razor. Daisy began to scream. Her Poopie place was really hurting. She pooped out some crap onto Laurie’s hand.
Laurie wiped her hand clean. The fluffy was really distressed. Laurie didn’t know what to do, and the she decided to try what she had always done with Bloomy.
She scritched Daisy’s mane at the top of her head and then behind her ears. Daisy began to coo with delight and calmed down. Laurie then decided to speak to Daisy. Talk to her. Distract her whilst Laurie shaved her butt.
The fluffy listened. Laurie had told her everything. Every trouble. The fluffy listened. Maybe it couldn’t understand at all. They’re toys and what do they know of human problems? But it listened, it didn’t interrupt, it smiled and cooed that it finally had someone that was around for her. The stinging aftershave lotion was applied and the fluffy didn’t even flinch. It had listened and listened to Laurie speak.
Laurie had talked so much. And she talked about Bloomy too. She had really missed him. She really wanted to hug him.
“Cn Daisy hav Huggies tu?”
Laurie had stopped and looked down. The fluffy was smiling innocently back at her.
“Of course you can Daisy. I’m going to give you a hug like I used to give Bloomy. You’ve been such a good fluffy and you’ve had so many hurties. You deserve a hug”
Laurie cradled and hugged Daisy in her arms and rocked her. The fluffy cooed with warmth. Laurie placed her down after a while and then gave her the bowl of corn soup. The fluffy lapped it up messily but Laurie was able to clean her mouth with a handy wipe.
The fluffy thanked her and Laurie gave her one final scratch behind her ears and turned her back around to look outside.
The fluffy was content and had been serviced. Chad was right, they do require a lot of work and time and effort. And all it takes to comfort them is one simple hug and that hole in their heart is instantly sealed. No wonder they love hugs so much. Maybe if Laurie gave enough hugs it would fill the hole too.
On the table, a note was left behind. Mr Morrison was administering the toilet and litter training to the foals and he would do more chores. He had left a pan of corn soup for Laurie and asked her to bring back the pan and thanked her for her work.
Laurie had enjoyed the soup. Maybe it was too good for fluffies but it was certainly good for her. She could have more tomorrow while she was looking for work.
She opened the door and went into the kitchen to put the soup in the fridge.
“Mom?”
A shiver went through Laurie’s spine. She looked in the kitchen.
The pan was placed on the table and and stretched her arms forward towards the voice.
“I’m so glad you’re home Rachel. I love you. I’ve missed you.”
Laurie hugged her daughter and breathed in the smell of her hair. Her daughter had grown but she still used the same dry shampoo she had always used when she was in a hurry.
Laurie cried and hugged her daughter tighter. Rachel hugged her mother tighter. “I’ve missed you too mom. I wish I could’ve been here with you”
Mr Morrison observed his new trainees and the foals had looked up eagerly at their Daddeh. Had they done well? Had they made good poopies? The room in that shed, that outhouse was so dark and maybe scary but they wanted to do good poopies for Daddeh. Be good fluffies.
He patted their heads and laughed. They had certainly made a lot of good poopies. That corn soup cleans them out nicely and with little complaints from them. Fluffies love sweet things after all. Litter training is not so simple as to point out where to poop, it is about coordination and remembering. Finding a spot and using it specifically. It distinguishes domestics from feral born. It requires instilled discipline, rote learning and good behaviour patterns and the fluffy will learn exactly where to find the litter box and remember to use it and make sure they poop nowhere else. Mr Morrison had boiled it down to simple science.
The outhouse was no exception. It would be a place that they would learn to use and remember to use if there was no litterbox or even a damn litterpal
Speaking of litterpals, he was very happy with the litterpal that he had hidden inside the fluffy outhouse. He groaned occasionally, and begged for his mother who he didn’t deserve. Thank god Mr Morrison didn’t have to listen to that screech, that REEEEEEE ever again for as long as he was in the fluffy outhouse.
the last fluffy that had went in was delighted and so happy. He was proud that he hadn’t been scared by the fluffy outhouse and the weird and big poopie litterpal inside. He had made good poopies for Daddeh and got his licky cleanies too. A clean bottom for Daddeh! Mr Morrison laughed with delight and told him to play with his siblings. The fluffy ran towards them to play with his blockies. He was such a good and clever boy.
Mr Morrison then banged hard on the box and reminded the litterpal inside that if he didn’t do a good job all the time he’d hand him over to the fucking police and he wouldn’t get his heart medication that he needed after his heart attack. He wasn’t going to get any more foal tendies and would just get fluffy shit instead. Mr Morrison walked away laughing. Maybe he should paint the outhouse and make it a friendly colour for the fluffies to use.

2020.08.26 14:02 sugardatingsites Find Love Easily With Niche Dating Sites

Find Love Easily With Niche Dating Sites
The term "niche" sounds like it was borrowed from the business world. After all, you are trading in a specific niche market. Niche dating sites are a new trend in online dating and have become popular because they are an easy way to connect with like-minded people or find specific types of people you want to socialize with. Before we start enjoying the benefits, let us first understand the meaning of a niche dating site.
This will help compare with traditional online dating methods. When dating online debuted, these sites were all-inclusive. This means that managers accept people of all ages, marital statuses, and races. It also allows people from different countries to register on the same dating platform.
Niche dating sites are sites that specifically target specific groups of people. They are selective in their membership. On this basis, there are different market segments. They include:

https://preview.redd.it/a4fpmmf37cj51.jpg?width=684&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=bf08397782620b65f4ce94ae28ffcea95fac2c9a
Premium website only
Websites for individuals who are single or married or divorced or widowed
Websites belonging to people of a specific faith, such as Jews, Christians, Hindus, and Muslims
Gay, lesbian and bisexual website
Vegan website
Site for sports lovers
Places where individuals are prohibited from cruelty to animals
Rich, rich and affluent website
The aforementioned categories are just a few of the niche dating sites. There are many online dating sites that can meet the needs of the citizens of a country. For example, only sites in Ukraine, Russia, Latin America, Brazil, and Asia. Some are centered on specific occupations.
So, what are the benefits of niche dating sites? there are many. Although the membership is limited, it provides enough partners for you to choose from. Because these sites cater to people who belong to a certain age group or country or have the same religious beliefs as you, they eliminate the guesswork about dating. You don’t have to be curious about the types of people you associate with, because you have a rough idea of ​​his profession, his preferences, his beliefs, and opinions. Therefore, you do not need to peruse thousands of member profiles to find someone who suits you. Instant messaging and chat are some of the features it provides to simplify communication.
Find the right niche dating site
The process is roughly the same as registering for other dating sites. You can start your search by finding the top 7 or top 5 dating sites in the market segment you are interested in. It is important that you build a reliable website that protects the privacy of its members by protecting the private and confidential information shared on the network.
Each site requires you to fill out a registration form before you can use its network and services. On some websites, membership is free, while on others, you must pay a nominal fee to access the service.

2020.08.25 22:11 A_Vespertine Something Familiar

Go Back to Part I
The door chime rang as I stepped into Sandbrook’s Saint Street Deli, a favourite local eatery of mine since childhood. I gave a nostalgic side glance to the now off-limits seating area where my father and I had often shared a meal, hoping wistfully that we’d be able to do that again before too long.
“Hey Samantha, perfect timing. Just got finished with your order,” Sam Sandbrook Jr. smiled at me from behind the plexiglass partition.
My dad and I had always been on good terms with the family-owned deli, even though my mother and sister’s ‘Kareness’, for lack of a better word, almost always brought them into conflict with the outspoken Sandbrook Senior on the rare occasion they visited the deli at all. More than once, he’d remarked that I was so quiet because all my mother’s verbosity (not his word) went to my sister.
"Perfect, thank you. Moxley's been cooped up in my trailer all day and I need to get home before dark to give him some outdoor time," I remarked as I fumbled through my purse for my debit card.
“You’re still living out in Harrowick Woods? That forest is haunted you know,” he teased as he rang up the total on the 1980’s cash register they’d used since before I was born.
“Yeah, I know,” I said with an enigmatic smile, which he couldn’t actually see because of my mask.
“That’s a very pink mask you’ve got there. I thought the surgical ones only came in blue,” he commented.
“Genevieve ordered them for us. I’m working out of her New Age shop over on Albion now,” I explained as I tapped my card to the modern peripheral that had somehow been jerry-rigged to the ancient till. “She’s convinced that surgical masks are the best after N95’s, but she wanted ones that were still distinct and feminine.”
“Distinct and feminine – that’s Genevieve alright,” he agreed as he slid the bag through the hole in the plexiglass. “Umm…. I don’t mean to pry, but you’re dating Genevieve, right?”
I froze, my eyes widening as the familiar, noxious feeling of my social anxiety began to churn in my stomach.
“Ah, yeah. Over a year now,” I said softly, uncertain about where the conversation was going. “Why?”
“I know it’s silly and none of my business, but I was wondering about your sandwiches,” he chuckled awkwardly. “I noticed late last year that whenever you came in here for take-out, you started buying two sandwiches instead of one. I knew it wouldn’t be for your dad, so I started thinking that maybe you were seeing someone. But Genevieve’s a vegan, isn’t she?”
I let out a sigh of relief and nodded.
“Yeah, she is. She checks every box on the Left pretty hard,” I chuckled.
“So – and again, I know it’s not my business – what’s with the extra sandwich?” he asked curiously. “Are you squirreling them away for when you can't stomach any more kale?"
“No, it’s not that. I like Genevieve’s cooking,” I laughed awkwardly, considering what I should tell him. “No, its for a friend of mine. Someone I meant out in Harrowick Woods.”
He furrowed his brow, his curiosity peaked but too polite to pry too much.
“Anyone I know?” he asked.
“Not anyone you would remember,” I answered.

Not twenty minutes later, I was home in Harrowick Woods, in a cemetery that a 19th-century occultist by the name of Artaxerxes Crow had made hallowed ground, weakening the Veil between the physical and spiritual planes, and hiding it from the notice of unenlightened mortals. It was beautiful, and secret, and sacred, and I loved it more than anything other than Genevieve, my family, my cat, and one other person.
I bent down by my altar, which I had placed by my fire pit, and lit the candle within the jack-o-lantern shaped holder that I had marked with a special sigil. I took my wand, tapped it to my command chakra, and then traced that same sigil in the air with it.
“Elam Crow. Under Sacred Sky and upon Hallowed Earth I invoke our pact and call you hence from the astral plane. Heed my summons and come serve your Lady. So mote it be!” I incanted, bidding my spirit familiar to appear.
Right on cue, a translucent blue astral body in the form of a lean man with white hair and a long coat manifested on the other side of the fire pit.
“Hi, Elam! You can have a seat. I just want to talk tonight. Here, I got you an Italian hoagie from Sandbrook's."
It’s very important for a Witch to show her appreciation for her familiars so that their relationship doesn't deteriorate into just giving and obeying orders, but how you show your appreciation can take many forms. On two occasions when Elam had still been alive, including the night he died, I had shared sandwiches with him from Sandbrook’s deli, so I thought that would be a meaningful tradition for us.
He also just seems to enjoy the chance to consume food again, though I’m as confused as you are about how that actually works.
As far as I know, consciousness is the only thing that can exist on both the physical and astral planes. I think it is possible to transmute physical matter into astral material, so long as the lost mass is compensated for somehow, kind of like Hawking radiation from a black hole. Elam might be doing that, or his astral body might just be telekinetically grinding up the sandwiches into such minute crumbs that they're dissipating in the air without me noticing.
Or it could be something else altogether. I've never asked him about it. Seems rude.
Elam accepted the sandwich with an appreciative nod and sat in the chair next to mine. I unwrapped my own Rueben, tossing a piece of beef down to my cat Moxley, who was already eagerly pawing at my leg.
“So, what’s on your mind, Samantha?” Elam asked before he took his first bite.
“Well, I’ve been trying to research Artaxerxes, since the only information I have on him is from his own journals, which are very obviously biased towards glorifying him,” I began, already tearing off a second helping of beef for Moxley. “But I can’t find anything else about him, or you, or the rest of your family. The will-o-wisps ate it all. I was wondering how much you knew about him.”
“Very little. I didn’t even know his first name until you told me,” he admitted. “I do know that he was my Great Great Great Grandfather and that before she died my daughter Rosemary was the seventh generation of Crows to bear Persephone's Favour, as we called it. The reason I mention that is because the seventh generation Crow was to be significant somehow, or at least that’s what got passed down to me. Did you find anything about that in the journal you dug up with him?”
“Not exactly. That journal was obviously meant for his eyes only, so a lot of it’s pretty cryptic,” I answered. “More than once he rambles on about how he’s ensured the greatness of his bloodline, and how when the stars finally align it will be one of his descendants to usher in a ‘rapturous iconoclasm’ that will leave the mortal plane forever altered.”
“Well then, I guess we can safely rule out prophecy as being one of old Xerxes’ gifts,” Elam scoffed, hints of bitterness and sorrow seeping into his voice.
I considered dropping that line of inquiry entirely, but I still had a few nagging questions.
“One aspect of the Favour I'm a little unclear on; did all of you inherit the physical aspects as well as the spiritual ones; your white hair, silvery skin, and bright blue/green eyes?" I asked.
“Every relative I ever met looked like this, though it’s milder when we’re younger,” Elam nodded. “Rosemary, for instance, had platinum hair and pale skin, so she didn’t really look too unusual. Why do you ask?”
“I just wanted to rule out the possibility that I am not some unaccounted-for descendant of Artaxerxes,” I admitted, modestly averting my gaze.
“With red hair and brown eyes? Not a chance,” Elam assured me. “No Samantha, you are a monkey wrench in Xerxes' most well-laid plans, and had you discovered this place one month later then you did, I and every Crow except for Xerxes would still be in Hades right now.”
“Yeah. It’s funny to think about how different my life and your afterlife would be if we’d never met,” I mused, sneaking in a bite of my sandwich before moving onto my next question. “What do you think the odds are that there are Crows who have yet to shuffle off their mortal coil?”
"Zero," he said flatly. "Xerxes' deal with Persephone was that he and every descendant would sacrifice themselves to the wisps here on All Hallow’s Eve, by no later than their 70th year. Each of us who failed to honour that deal brought compounding waves of misfortune upon our entire family, which eventually became fatal. By the time my father’s 70th birthday rolled around it was down to just him, me, and Rosemary.
"I pleaded with him to sacrifice himself, so that Rosemary wouldn’t have to grow up without a father, or so that I wouldn’t have to bury a daughter, but he was too damn stubborn. He said he was too healthy and had too much to live for, that he didn’t trust me to manage what was left of our assets on my own, and that he was not to blame for the curses of the Elder Kin. So, his 70th Halloween came and went, and… Rosemary never saw her third Christmas.”
He paused, putting the sandwich down as he buried his face in his palms. I could feel the heartbreak of his daughter’s death welling up in him.
“Elam, you don’t need to go on if you don’t want to,” I said softly.
“Thank you, but I can continue,” he assured me. “I blamed my father for Rosemary’s death, and for my wife’s suicide not long after. We fought, physically, and that was the last time we spoke before he died. That was the really cruel irony, as far as I was concerned; that his refusal to sacrifice himself for me or my daughter hadn’t even bought him an extra year.
"He died of a stroke, suddenly but not surprising for a seventy-year-old smoker, and had already cut me out of his will. Chamberlin, the conniving bastard, took advantage of that and was able to scoop up most of what was left of my family’s assets for himself and, well… you know the rest.
“So no, I don’t think there could be any more living Crows out there. I only managed to survive until Halloween by hiding out here. Any long-lost relatives would still be cursed and would have died sometime between my father’s death and you turning Xerxes’ body over to Persephone.”
I nodded, satisfied with his answer, and unwilling to dwell on such an unfortunate topic any longer than was necessary.
“You mentioned Chamberlin. Crow, Crowley, & Chamberlin seems to be the only place that the name Crow wasn’t forgotten,” I told him. “How well did you know Chamberlin?”
“Not very. Like I said, my father didn’t trust me with the business. I only ever met Chamberlin a handful of times,” he replied. “He was a hard man to read though, both conventionally and clairvoyantly. At the very least, he had enough occult knowledge to occlude my extra-sensory perception.”
“You mean he’s a psychic dead zone, like Saint Aria’s Church?” I pressed, simultaneously intrigue and alarmed at the prospect. Elam nodded in the affirmative. “There are a lot of weird rumours about Chamberlin, including that he’s the same Chamberlin that founded his financial firm two hundred years ago. Did you ever get that impression?”
“He doesn’t seem to have aged since I first saw him as a child; but, you know, neither has Cher, so make of that what you will,” Elam shrugged, before growing pensive. “Do you still have all the keys from the keyring I left you?”
“Of course, why?”
“I have a safe deposit box at CC&C, box 373, under the pseudonym Cyril Vance,” he replied.
I took out the keyring he was referring to and quickly flipped to one with the numbers 373 engraved on it.
“This one?” I asked.
“That’s it. With that, my pseudonym, and the password Asphodel, they'll let you access the box. They won't ask for ID. That's their safe deposit boxes' main selling feature, actually. They don't need to know who you really are. Assuming that Chamberlin never figured out that box was mine, it's probably still intact."
“What’s in it?” I asked. He took a moment to consider his response.
“I'd like to call them scrolls just to sound dramatic, but I suppose they're just rolled up pieces of paper," he replied. "The occult dealer I bought them from said they were spell scrolls made by a Witch who came here with the first settlers. I could sense they had astral properties, but I was never able to read them. The Witch who made them had taken measures to ensure that only clairvoyant women would be able to uncover her secrets. I bought them with the intention of giving them to Rosemary when she was old enough but now, now I want you to have them.”
“You’re sure?” I asked carefully.
“Absolutely,” he nodded without hesitation. “You know, if Rosemary had gotten the chance to grow up, you’re the kind of woman I would have been proud to see her grow into.”
I blushed at the undeserved compliment.
“A socially awkward, bisexual, technically grave-robbing pagan illegally squatting on municipal land?” I scoffed dismissively.
“A gifted, independent, well-learned Witch who accomplishes what she puts her mind to no matter what,” he answered back. I accepted the compliment without further resistance, and we finished our sandwiches without any more talk of the past.

A couple of days later, after my last counselling appointment at Genevieve’s, I took a walk over to Crow, Crowley & Chamberlin to see if I could get access to Elam’s safe deposit box. It wasn’t a long walk, and for reasons I couldn’t quite place my finger on, I didn’t want to risk them getting my license plate number. Maybe it was just my anxiety, but even though I wasn’t doing anything wrong or dangerous, it still kind of felt like I was.
I had told Genevieve about Elam’s scrolls, and she was extremely interested in getting ahold of first-hand accounts of another Harrowick Witch, but there didn’t seem any need for her to come with me. It was a simple enough errand for me to handle on my own, and she had her afternoon backyard yoga class to teach. CC&C wasn't really her kind of place either, and she hinted she was a bit wary of Chamberlin himself.
I eschewed my customary witchy dress in place of more generic dress pants and the nicest long-sleeved blouse I had, in the hopes of both blending in and avoiding recognition. I wore my mask, a large pair of sunglasses, and I put my hair up into a bun under a wide brim hat, thinking myself to be as inconspicuously incognito as I could possibly be.
Crow, Crowley, & Chamberlin was a Greek Revival style building with big stone columns lining the front entrance and a pair of marble sphinxes flanking the stairs. The inside was just as ostentatious with dark marble floors, mahogany panelling, and a three-tiered fountain in the lobby.
Behind the counter was also a large portrait of three 19th-century men, and I recognized Artaxerxes Crow immediately. The tall, slender, scarlet-clad likeness of either Chamberlin or his ancestor was familiar enough as well, as he often made himself noticeable at public events. The third man was presumably Crowley, who I don’t actually know anything about.
I was so fixated on the portrait, I almost didn't hear when the teller waved me up to the counter.
“Hello. I’m the beneficiary of Cyril Vance, owner of safe deposit box 373. I’d like to collect its contents,” I announced as I presented the key. The teller inspected it briefly before typing the information into her keyboard.
“Password?” she asked.
“Asphodel,” I replied. “Excellent. Right this way Miss,” she said, leading me across the counter and down to the vaults. She punched in a code to open a cabinet full of keys, picking the one marked 373. She signed it out on a nearby clipboard and then opened the vault to the safe deposit boxes. She led me straight to 373 and, using both of our keys, unlocked for it me.
“Take all the time you need,” she said, politely refusing to open it and excusing herself to wait outside.
I took off my sunglasses and, after taking a furtive glance around for any spies or cameras, I pulled open the drawer. Inside - along with a heavy Manila folder, a velvet case, and a leather coin purse - were the scrolls Elam had described. They were essentially just rolled up sheets of paper held closed by a brass ring. I picked one of them up and examined it carefully, weighing it in my hand. It was old and yellow, but didn’t seem like it would disintegrate on me if I tried to open it. I cautiously slipped off the brass ring and unfurled the paper.
At first, it was blank, but being observed by a Witch activated whatever latent enchantment it was under. Dark, nebulous vapour of astral matter was summon into existence and began to swirl about the page, forming an elegant, floral border around its edges. Something like a living contour map began to form upon the page itself, and as I skimmed over the fleeting calligraphy and sigils that marked them, I realized I was looking at a map of ley lines.
I’ve read a lot of varying conjectures on what exactly ley lines are, but my personal theory is that they’re currents in the aether, a primal substrate that underlies all reality. They're most prominent in the astral plane, but they seem to affect paranormal activity on the physical plane too. The Veil between planes is always a little weaker around ley lines, and especially where they intersect.
The undulating lines danced upon the page, their strength waxing and waning, their positions shifting subtly over time. I wasn’t sure if I was looking at a record or a forecast, which suddenly became relevant as a powerful convergence of ley lines briefly came together before disbanding again.
If I was looking at a forecast, when and where was that predicted to happen, and how long would it last? The implications of such a convergence were, though vague, still significant, and it seemed like something I should be prepared for. I began scanning the scroll to see if I could decipher any system of coordinates or dates, when the map instantly dissipated right before my eyes.
“What?” I muttered, unsure about what had just happened.
“Why hello, hello, hello,” a man’s voice came from the vault’s entrance. I spun around and saw who I instantly recognized as Chamberlin leaning in the doorway. Tall, slender, and dressed in a dark red three-piece suit with a matching top hat, hardly any different from his portrait.
His mask was actual gold and looked like the bottom half of an Oni mask, with a snarling smile and prominent fangs, the black cloth behind it giving the impression of an abysmally dark and deep gullet.
Most disturbingly of all, I couldn’t read him at all with my clairvoyance, exactly as Elam had said.
“Ah, hello,” I responded, rolling the scroll back up and sticking it into the bag I had brought with me. “I’m sorry, was I taking too long?”
“Oh no, of course not. I just happened to be available at the moment and I always like to offer my personal attention to our clients whenever possible,” he explained, introducing himself with a curt bow. “I’m Seneca Chamberlin, Chairman of Crow, Crowley, & Chamberlin. How may I be of service to you, Miss?”
He spoke with a ‘Mid-Atlantic’ accent like an old movie star. Since Chamberlin was supposed to have been born locally, it was logically an affectation, but for some reason, it gave me the impression that it was a worn-down native British accent.
“Um, ah, thank you, but, but no thank you. I’m just here to collect some personal, private, documents, and I was just verifying their contents before taking them,” I said, quickly shoving the remainder of the box’s contents into my bag and pocketing the key.
I fumbled with my sunglasses before making my way to the door, but Chamberlin refused to move aside. He glanced up and down my completely occluded face before letting out a short chortle.
“May I just say Miss that I admire your choice of such a distinctly pink surgical mask. The blue ones are so common as to be positively blasé,” he remarked with a roll of his eyes. “I suppose that for their traditional purpose, an easily identifiable mask is counterproductive, but since our masks are solely for medical purposes, it’s advantageous for them to be easily recognizable, isn’t it?”
I swallowed nervously and nodded, but said nothing. He stepped aside then, gesturing politely that I was free to go. I nodded my thanks, and scurried out with my bag of occult scrolls clutched tightly to my side. Just before I reached the exit, I heard him shout from behind me.
"If you're ever interested in opening up your own account with us, I'd be happy to see to it personally, Miss Sumner.”

2020.08.22 22:56 pimoflex69 RAGE: Women on dating apps

I'm from the UK so I'm not sure if some of the trends I see here are the same in the US or elsewhere. But Jesus Christ man women on dating apps are the fucking worst. And it's only been getting worse the older I get. I'm currently 29 and dating at this age is like Vietnamese fingernail torture.
First off let's start with the entitlement. Every girl has a litany of things they want a guy to do for them, or a guy to be in order to be "qualified" to date them yet they offer nothing of value back. "Make me laugh" has to be one of the most over used statements on profiles. MAKE YOU LAUGH!? YOU'VE GIVEN ZERO INDICATION OF A SENSE OF HUMOUR YOU DUMB BITCH, YOU COME OFF LIKE YOU HAVE THE PERSONALITY OF A PIECE OF PAPER WTF AM I SUPPOSED TO DO WITH THIS!?
They want you to be in shape, have a great personality, make them laugh, message first, be tall, have a beard, have tattoos, play guitar, be sensitive, be a man "no bois plz", they don't want one night stands or players, but also nothing serious, let's see what happens, don't want kids, vegan, yoga, travelling EVERYBODY WANTS TO TRAVEL YOU CUNT, TRAVELLING DOESN'T MAKE YOU SPECIAL OR INTERESTING, DO YOU EVEN HAVE A PERSONALITY? OR DO YOU JUST REPEAT THE SAME FUCKING SHIT AS EVERYONE ELSE BECAUSE YOU DON'T WANT TO BE EXPOSED AS A COMPLETE FUCKING VOID OF A PERSON!!!??
Ultimately it seems like so many women just want a cardboard cutout man they can just use for whatever end they have. They don't want a man that thinks for himself, has hobbies that don't service her in some way or even wants to start a family. Haha in fact most of the time they don't want kids because of how deeply selfish they are, which in all honesty is a decent red flag to plaster on your bio.
They feel no obligation to be valuable at all other than being a hole. Their ego is so out of control that they seriously think that by virtue of being a woman is what gives them the right to demand so much of men and offer nothing in return. NOTHING. To anyone who has a little girl, NEVER teach them they are a "Princess", this is crucial. These girls suffer from lil princess syndrome, a mental disorder where women have increasingly distorted views of men and themselves based on their inflated sense of self worth and narcissism. Raise girls to understand the virtues of female traits and to respect men's efforts in the world and teach them to have hobbies, skills and intelligence so they don't rely on their fuck holes to move through this world.
Many of these women are left wing, what a fucking surprise huh? 33, still single, "looking for the one". Why is that? Could it be feminism sold you a lie? They sold you down the river to work a career or a job that you hate, that you took a year off for stress (why is it always women going off sick for stress?) And you convinced yourself you don't want kids, but now you're getting older and time is ticking and you're wondering why you feel so alone and you can't connect with men. But obviously it's all men's fault. Those pesky men don't want to be feminist. Oh god he doesn't blindly hate Trump like my ignorant fucking ass! What a cunt! He must be a terrible person to not just blindly hate all the things I hate despite me never doing the minimal ammount of research to even form a coherent opinion!
George Orwell wrote in 1984 about how women were the worst offenders for shouting slogans and blindly following the doctrine of the state. I wonder why he wrote that 🤔 the more I use dating apps, the more I realise how easily brainwashed women are. I noticed this in church too. Women would be ardent and pedantic enforcers of the religion. Men would be more lenient, knowing that following the core philosophy is more important than if you jack off from time to time or use curse words.
The height thing fucks me off. I'm not even small I'm 5'11. But it's just so fucking shallow. You know damned well if I made a male equivalent profile like "I want a short girl, slim, medium tits and nice ass" I'd be lambasted as some kind of mysoginist objectifier who needs to be strapped into a chair Clockwork Orange style and re-educated into some form of soy based lifeform only to be rejected by women anyway.
Women often want kindness and compassion but I don't think they actually know what those words mean because when it comes to men they seem completely unable to be or show any of those things. Like if a woman shows even an ounce of consideration to me it's actually a shock nowerdays. Obviously it's just code for kindness and compassion FOR ME. Not for you, not for anyone else, just be kind to me. Again it's this insane selfishness that they have almost no self awareness about. This is likely why women generally hate eachother because of how deeply narcissistic they are.
Single mothers. Like fuck, hearing their stories is just heartbreaking and enraging at the same time. I was on a date not long ago with this single mom. The kid was 8 months old. She had the kid in her last year of uni with a guy she just smoked weed with and fucked. They weren't even together. I'm not really for abortion but it seems like a good idea in that situation. Now the dad has fucked off to another country and has left her behind. Great choices lady. I'm sure your child won't grow up to resent you.
Obviously I'm not ragging on all women, just women on dating apps in particular. I notice these growing trends where women want it all. They want seven guys at once to be deeply in love with them while also having no commitment to any of them, in fact they have one guy they fawn over on WhatsApp who lives in another country or some shit who actually gives zero fucks about her and just mines her for nudes. But he's the one she's holding out for.
It's exhausting and deeply frustrating. Women are turning into the hedonistic chauvinist pigs they claim to despise and it's just sickening.
Never been mgtow but seriously considering it the more this goes on
EDIT: someone mentioned fatties in the comments and so I had to sound off on that. I won't go on too long but I'll say this; fatties are some of the most frustrating of women as they actually have good personalities a lot of the time. HOWEVER they're usually in massive denial and are huge catfishes. They preach body positivity yet use every angle in the book to look thinner or use pictures from years ago where they were slightly slimmer (so they look thicc rather than fat) to lure you in. So when you actually go on that date thinking you're in for some dummy thickness you end up meeting a blob. And you can't fucking say anything because it's impolite but inside you're screaming WHY DID YOU LIE TO ME YOU FUCKING PLANETOID?? AND SHE CAN SEE IT IN YOUR EYES THAT YOU'RE SCREAMING INSIDE BUT SHE SAYS NOTHING AND YOU SAY NOTHING AND YOU HAVE AN AWKWARD DATE THEN GO HOME AND NEVER SPEAK AGAIN. GET ON A TREADMILL YOU FAT LYING FUCK AND STOP THIS MADNESS

Giving this a shot.
I'd like to meet someone to date, or possibly have a long-term relationship if we click.
A little about myself: per the title, I'm 32, white, and live in the bay area. I work in the service industry and am in college studying math and computer science. I'm generally pretty introverted and quiet, but in the company of the right people, I tend to talk more than enough. I love to read (currently reading stormlight book two), workout, cook and meal prep (vegan[i love animals]), listen to music, play guitar. School is extremely important to me (yes I'm a nerd) as is working out on a daily basis. It would be nice to meet someone who also prioritized these principles as well but that's definitely not a requirement. I don't smoke anymore, but I do drink socially, which is not often. Over the past two years, I've gone through some pretty difficult times, which has changed my entire outlook on life, and made me prioritize everything that was important to me. Working out on a daily basis is my therapy. My friends say that I'm "spiritual," which I take as a compliment. Physically, I'm 5'10, fit, brown hair and green eyes.
I could keep talking about myself here, or we could get to know more about each other through chatting.
What you look like doesn't matter to me. I'm extremely open to meeting all kinds of people. It would be nice to meet someone in the area, though. Hit me up, your pic will get mine.
Talk to y'alls soon!

2020.08.12 08:00 StaplePT It's just exhausting screening everything and staying sane. How TF do you all do it ?

I've been vegan for a few years and I'm just absolutely fucking exhausted with having to screen every item that I want to buy, every activity that I want to do, every service that I want to get, every place that I want to go to - big/small/in-between. And oftentimes, i have to go against what I want for the sake of the animals.
I'm just sick and tired of it, and to top it off - becoming vegan has meant that everyone thinks and looks at me as worse than a nazi the moment they know I'm vegan, it's difficult to have a good relationship with anyone. It's difficult to date anyone.
Adding more to complain about, being vegan and physically healthy isn't fucking easy. My blood work sucks even after trying really hard to fix it. Searching for legit vegan supplements was a nightmare. I have to find a doctor who's vegan friendly now, a barber and a hair stylist who's vegan friendly amongst a shit ton of other things that I've started doing, failed and have to get back on the search.
It also doesn't help that I'm in Canada and most resources out here are american or british and the best products are typically only in those countries and it costs $$$$$ to ship and buy with the currency exchange. It's better than living in a 2nd or 3rd world country but it's still fucking frustrating and exhausting.
Life is so much fucking harder being vegan. I'm also part of a minority group which has made things harder and I'm ex-religious (for years before veganism) so my social and support life took a hit from that too and didn't recover well.
And to top it off now, with covid going around and the few people that you were hoping to develop friendships with demonstrate a lack of interest in being pro-community by wearing their masks or physical distancing - it's made my life even harder.
The only way I find to be truly successful at this is to become a damn expert at everything and/or have a ton of money to be able to find and hire trustworthy, credible experts to do all the work for you. And a bunch of other factors like not having other major changes and challenges in your life , poor physical or mental health, having the privilege of being part of a certain race and a certain gender (based off the situation), etc.
This is a mixture of a rant/vent and a cry for help. How the hell do you manage? Where do you draw the line ? I don't know what else to ask but if you've got something to say that could be useful, please comment.
Edit : If all your response is going to be is shaming and guilt- tripping, please leave.
Edit 2: as it's very late in this part of the world and I need the sleep, I'm going to bed. I'll be replying back to everyone as soon as I can. Thanks for those so far that have provided some support or at least said they can relate.
