2023.05.31 11:17 PigeonofCommunism I need help with my life

I don't exactly know how to describe how I feel. A potluck of anger, sorrow, confusion, anxiety, and hope is the closest I can get to truly describing how I feel. So much of myself and my current situation in life makes me feel terrible and is driving me into a deeper depression than I've been in and have genuinely no clue on what to do. I guess the best way to get it all out is just to go through it all, so:
To preface, some information: 19M. I go to counseling. I struggle with suicidality and depression and have for many, many years. I think I might be autistic but I don't know if so and I don't know what to do to test for it. I'm bisexual. I'm currently unemployed but looking for a job (unenthusiastically). I am not religious. I am freshly graduated from high school.
For starters, me, much of myself I'm confused about. I would say I have a solid understanding of myself, but a deeper part of me still doesn't know who I am. Gender is a good example of this. I'm AMAB, but I don't feel I align with being male; yet, I don't feel I align with being female. I don't feel that I'm non-binary, nor agender. I almost feel as if I'm both. I know that I shouldn't label it as that's putting it into a box, but I feel uncomfortable with the fact that I'm unsure on as to who I am. I have basic things that I like and could characterize myself with, but these are nothing more than things I like. I don't feel I know who I am.
I build up so much self-hatred and anxiety and have no control over this. I can be in a calm state, but one little thing reminds me of my struggles and within moments, my mind will barrel into all my darker thoughts and immediate suicidality sets in. It will build up, I'll mentally shut down and disassociate, and it will kill mood for however long it lasts (sometimes just an hour, sometimes a whole week). I fear so much and either don't have enough confidence, energy, or knowledge to confront them. Examples of these are: an immense fear of confrontation, I shut down upon any negative confrontation and all of a sudden, it feels as if I'm 10 again and a parent is scolding me and I can't do anything; an immense fear of failure, simply the thought of ending up an old, bigoted person who has nothing to show for their life and having accomplished none of their dreams absolutely terrifies me to a point of mental breakdown, and is the reason why I've decided to try and make changes; and a few more that I won't be going too into as this is already really long and don't want to make it too miserable to read; a fear of being judged, a fear of loneliness, and a fear of change. All this just seems to flood my thoughts all the time, creating an overarching dark cloud of my thoughts.
I struggle to open up and be honest. This post is an example of that, as this is one of the only instances I've actually had the ability to truly say how I feel. My family is very "traditional" (AKA, very bigoted) and emotions were very often suppressed, and some of my friends are of this same demeanor. I have tried to discuss some more personal feelings with friends and family but have unanimously been met with them ignoring me, changing the subject, or responding with a half-assed answer that doesn't mean anything. My friends who are more understanding do sympathize, but again offer no real help outside of cookie-cutter answers. I know this fear stems from these events, but it's been troubling as I struggle to truly open up to counselors, people lending a hand to help, and just be honest with my intentions. From struggling to ask for comfort when I'm struggling with very dark thoughts, to telling a store clerk that I'm okay whenever they ask if I need help finding something even though I can't find what I'm looking for. That is also another issue I feel I struggle with: a feeling that I myself need to do everything and must do it alone. I go to counseling but it's been tough to go, both because of this struggle to open up with myself and it's expensive since I have no insurance.
A lack of social connection has been a major tumor on my sanity. I feel so isolated. I live in southwest Florida and I live in a house that's really far from town. It's in the woods and an hour drive anywhere I go, but it's not like I have anywhere to go. To pile onto this, majority of my friends live so far away that I can't do anything with them (and the ones that are somewhat close either make me uncomfortable to be around or keep avoiding my offers to hang out). I often find myself feeling really lonely all the time. I talk to them online often, but due to their lives they aren't able to chat so often. Another aspect that's made me feel isolated is the people I live with. I live with my grandma and my brother, both of which I get along with fine, but I can't help but feel like they don't really care for me that much. Neither show any emotional connection, and I feel as if they only care about their perception of me rather than me, if that makes sense. With my friends being distant socially and physically, and my family being so different and emotionally dead makes it rough.
I have terrible social anxiety too. I get really scared to talk to people, and heavily struggle to make conversation. I want to make friends, but it feels so difficult to keep up a conversation and to talk to them again later on. I know it's not hard. If someone starts talking to me, I can sometimes make it work no problems. I sometimes surprise myself with how fluid and calm I can be when put in a situation of open conversation, but it's so terrifying to start it every time even though I know it's not hard. God forbid I find someone attractive, because mustering up the courage to say something could only done through a push from a friend. I often begin to shut down sometimes with friendships and will want to talk to someone, and think about them, but never do anything about it, and time will move on and they will move on, and a lost opportunity occurs.
Another aspect is because of the place I live in. With such a terrible drive and a town and place and I hate, I can't help but look around and dislike this place. I am someone who despises American infrastructure and cars. I hate corporatism and suburbia that plagues the US. I often see copy-and-paste houses that are way too expensive, with extensive roads of nothing, and a plaza of stores and nothing else around here. I dislike the way things are designed and I'm reminded of this every time I leave the house. There is a segment of the town I love due to its walkable and people-centric design, but that's so far away from where I live, and way too expensive to ever live near there for the near minimum wage job I'll soon have. I wish to move somewhere else that isn't suburbia hellscape, preferably outside of the United States, but I don't know how to even begin that process. I understand that I have to live with it for now, and that there isn't anything I can do about that, but it just frustrates me.
Tying into what I previously said, I feel like I cannot do anything on my own. I struggle to figure out how to do anything, minor to major. A recurring example is a haircut. I need a haircut, I know that I can make a reservation, or walk-in, just a phone call or drive, and what do I want? A simple trimming of my hair to keep it healthy, but I struggle to begin doing it. A more major example is beginning to make a plan to move to a new city, state, or country. I can look up how to and get in-depth guides on how to, but due to the work and information, it just becomes so intense of a thought that my brain shuts down when reading and I lose all attention. The more major, usually the easier my mind falls apart. I feel incompetent in my own endeavors to do anything, from simply folding the laundry that's been piled on my chair for a couple days to making plans for my dreams (I would love to work in the film industry as a screenwriter, director, or really just anything in the field. I have many, many ideas for what I'd wish to produce with great detail but struggle to apply for colleges). I feel like I can't do anything on my own. It took me a week to build up the confidence to write this out, as I've never posted on Reddit before and get nervous about these types of things anyways.
A bit of a rapid-fire of other struggles as this is already stupid long: I've never had a romantic relationship before and that kind of weights on conscious a little bit; I can barely get my sleep schedule together, as later in the night feels less stressful and so it incentivizes my mind to stay up, but I wake up pretty late as a result; I struggle to get out of bed every morning and lie there for an hour to an hour and a half each morning before getting up; and there's probably some more I can't of right now because I'm tired.
This is a hell of a lot of text. I'm sorry about that. I have felt like I'm spiraling into an extremely deep depression and no one seems to listen or care and I won't be able to see my counselor for another 2 weeks and just need someone to throw me a lifebuoy as I drown. This feels as if it's too personal for here, I don't know, but frankly, I don't know what else to do.
Thank you.

2023.05.31 11:14 Ctrl__P The Sequins…

The Sequins…
When King Tut’s tomb was discovered in 1922, gold sequinlike disks were found sewn onto the Egyptian royal’s garments. It’s assumed they’d ensure he’d be financially and sartorially prepared for the afterlife.
Sewing precious metals and coins onto clothing wasn’t just prepping for the hereafter. In fact, the origins of the word “sequin” have always referenced wealth.
“Sequin” originated from the Arabic word sikka, meaning “coin.” Sewing gold and other precious metals onto clothing was multifunctional, serving as a status symbol, a theft deterrent or a spiritual guide. Especially for those with more nomadic lifestyles, coins were kept close to the body and attached to clothes (see example above).
In 14th-century South America, chiefs wore gold sequins on their battle gear to make their impressive war maneuvers sparkle, turning the battlefield into a great gleam of light.
“The sequins Tripping on the light, whoa I feel it Hugging me so tight, whoa”
Sequins are traditionally sewn to the garment using a single thread; similar to that which is used to fly a kite, stitch a seam or sew a wound.
“To dress up a wound, heal a scar I’ve caught the wind in a kite of dreams In a flight of seams”
Acknowledging the fact that Josh has claimed Sacred the Thread is about his jumpsuits, this seems to me to be satirical and metaphoric similar to ‘wearing ones heart on their sleeve.’
Sacred describes something that is considered worthy of spiritual respect or devotion; or inspires awe or reverence among believers.
This appears to connect strongly with the description of Meeting the Master:
"'Meeting the Master' peers into an esoteric world heeded by the word of a wise teacher. Sung in the voice of a devout believer, and eventual group exclamation, the song details the love these fervent followers have for their teacher and their firm belief in his vision."
It is my belief that this describes the unknown creator of Bitcoin - Satoshi Nakamoto and the growing global community adopting a free and open monetary system. Bitcoin is ‘freedom technology’ providing millions of people refuge from authoritarianism, high and hyper-inflating currency as well as state controlled monetary policy.
The Bitcoin blockchain, originally referred to as the ‘timechain’ is the protocol ‘stitching’ the 21 million coins together. I believe Bitcoin is the Sacred Thread.
“Like freedom sewn And the people roar And the people soar”

2023.05.31 11:08 Svveet_Mavis A girl's first time modding skyrim! Please help! Stuck Loading Main Menu!

Hi! I have assembled a modlist together of mods I want to use and I have used MO2 and LOOT and everything I have read. It was working fine for awhile but I removed RSchildren because it wasn't working properly and all the children faces looked weird and stretched out, so I replaced it with simplechildren. Now, instead of weird children it doesn't open at all but loads the main menu forever. Any help would be nice! Here is my load order from LOOT. I am on the latest version of AE, btw.

8 Noteworthy NFT Games to Watch in 2023
A recent report by Cointelegraph reveals that the gaming industry is set to achieve a remarkable milestone, projecting an impressive revenue of $196 billion by 2022. Interestingly, within this industry, there is a noticeable shift towards the emergence of NFT games that leverage non-fungible tokens (NFTs). NFTs are digital assets securely stored on a blockchain, serving as representations of various items within games or even ownership rights. This particular trend in NFT gaming has gained substantial momentum, primarily driven by the remarkable success of games like Axie Infinity and The Sandbox. These games alone have amassed millions of dollars in revenue, and they merely scratch the surface of the ongoing NFT gaming phenomenon.

2023.05.31 10:57 Traditional-Bear-493 Rebook The British Bulldog’s WWF Intercontinental Championship Reign - P.U.R.E.

The biggest wrestling event ever to grace the world outside the shores of North America… infront of a sold out Wembley Stadium, Davey Boy topples Bret Hart in the main event to capture the Intercontinental Championship, infront of his people… in a moment that nobody will ever, ever forget.

Survivor Series: The British Bulldog (c) & Owen Hart def. The Samoan S.W.A.T. Team
The British Bulldog returns to the United States with the gold around his waist. On his first Saturday Night Main Event as champion, it’s a successful defence for DBS as he defeats Rick Martel. After this bout, in an interview discussing his title victory, none other than Mr. Perfect comes onto screen, and informs DBS to keep watching his back, as there are lots of competitors keeping an eye on his title belt. Following his victory, DBS remains a mainstay on WWF programming, as apart of the new and exciting New Generation Era, DBS is next seen helping The Hart Foundation deal with their battle against the Samoan S.W.A.T. team, and the new villainous Shawn Michaels, who is going after Hart’s newly won WWF Championship, after he defeated Flair in Saskatoon… who has now got a working agreement with the S.S.T who are working as his protection from the rest of the WWF roster. A Tag match between Bret & Davey against the S.S.T ends in DQ after Shawn Michaels gets involved. Setting up a re-match with Bret's brother at Survivor Series, where Owen & Davey work well together in picking up the huge tag win!

Royal Rumble: The British Bulldog (c) def. Shawn Michaels
Angry that his hiring of the Headshrinkers didn’t aid a World Title victory at Survivor Series… Michaels takes it out on DBS who continues to stick up and defend the rest of the roster from the antagonistic behaviour of those lurking in the shadows of WWF. Michaels, leads the line… and is next up to challenge DBS at a huge event… this time, at the ARCO Arena in Sacramento… As Smith goes for the Powerslam… Michaels skins down and goes for Sweet Chin Music, but an intuitive duck from Davey allows him to re-hoist him up and down for a Powerslam to retain the gold!

WrestleMania IX: The British Bulldog (c) def. Razor Ramon
If there is anybody in the WWF who is not going to stand and wait for an opportunity, it’s the Bad Guy, Razor Ramon… after Michaels loses at the Rumble his rage takes him into a conflict with Tatanka, Razor Ramon begins to get irked from Davey’s dismantling of those with evil intentions in the Federation. After Ramon takes on several other stars on Monday Night Raw… him and Davey come face to face as their huge match is made for WrestleMania! In the opening bout at the show of show’s it’s a great back and fourth bout that goes down in history as one of the greater openings in what ended up being a Mania remembered by Hogan being Hogan…. Not in this timeline, the crowd remember 2 of the greats of the New-Gen slugging it out for the Working Man’s Crown, in the end, Davey Boy topples Ramon with a second rope Powerslam for the 3 count and the retainment of his trophy.

King of the Ring: The British Bulldog (c) def. Bob Backlund
As the biggest tournament in WWF rolls around after WrestleMania, an opening challenge from the reigning I.C. champ is answered by the legendary world champion Bob Backlund, luckily for DBS, the iconic Backlund does not have enough to end the dominant reign of the Bulldog.

SummerSlam: The British Bulldog (c) def. Ted DiBiase
One year on from toppling Bret Hart in his home nation to win the gold, Davey makes it a year of successful defences after he takes down the most iconic villain of the Golden Era of WWF, finally, Davey Boy puts down the Million Dollar Man, with the Powerslam that has taken out so many so far in this historic reign.

Survivor Series: (HBK, Ramon, Perfect & Piper) def. (Bret Hart, Owen Hart, British Bulldog & Bruce Hart)
After a full year of getting into the bad books of many in the WWF roster, both Hart and Smith are once again left to join forces in taking out those who come for their necks. Unfortunately, unlike last year, they are unable to work together Owen & Smith…. With Bret trying to restore order, it fails ultimately… with HBK & Ramon outlasting the entire Hart Foundation… with Bret & Owen growing apart as DBS takes his first defeat since becoming the I.C. Champ

Royal Rumble - WrestleMania Build: The British Bulldog (c) def. Roddy Piper
After the incredible fallout of Survivor Series, and the breaking of the Hart Foundation…. Ramon & HBK both have a battle of ego’s on who should face DBS at the Rumble for the I.C. Title, in the end… they end up eliminating each other in the contender-ship Battle Royal…. In the end, being won by Piper… to get revenge from the November defeat, DBS defeats Piper and runs into Mania as the champion… with 2 men continuing to eye up the prize, WWF history is made twice over, in a match-type never before seen by the wrestling world.

WrestleMania X: Razor Ramon def. Shawn Michaels and The British Bulldog (c) [Triple Threat Ladder Match]
The first ever ladder match in WWF history…. In the first ever triple threat match in WWF history!! A match that is remembered for the rest of time in innovating just how unique wrestling matches can get…. Those in Madison Square Garden saw time stand still as Razor Ramon climbed up as Michaels & Smith both tried to scale the rungs…. As The Bad Guy ends the iconic and longest ever Intercontinental Championship reign, 568 days the Bulldog reigned… but it finally comes to a curtain call at the 10th WrestleMania.

2023.05.31 10:41 LeggyCricket This Is Your Roswell

I am a new poster looking for feedback on writing and would appreciate some comments. I have also posted this on Royal Road as seemed to be suggested by the lines []. Please let me know if something is wrong with the linking stuff. I am a bit over my head here.
Brief Synopsis: A couple of aliens just want a night out but nah, even what we would consider to be aliens get rude "visitors" eventually.
"Frrriiimm! Frrimm gukk gukk la lohe! Grikk grikk dowdu...."
"Himnol? Hunna sa lo?", incredulously replied the smaller of the two fluffy silver-haired creatures. Regardless of whatever had been the reluctance of the being, they slowly relaxed as the other fluffball lowered the small, beat up craft. A slight creak and a groan later, the vehicle rested soundly on top of the rocky formation overlooking the low plains of the northern continent. A cool breeze meet the two as panels opened on the sides of the small transport, gently raising wispy tuffs of hair back and skyward as if to tease the miniatures into a lift off. Padded feet bounced the smaller one up onto the vehicle top.
"Elja se to-od kama-muh-muh! Horte wi!", Scoffing at this as the smaller one flicked a tiny purple tongue out of black lips, a thin-snouted puffy cloud smirked right back at the other face as it bounced a couple of times before securing its position on top of the craft's hood next to its partner. A quick, playful swat to the side of the ear seemed to pay for the "insult" suffered by the slower fluffster, the two of them settling in close and chattering incomprehensibly for too long before finally nestling heads.
A gasp and high-pitched squeal parted from the smaller one's lips. Wonderment abounded as lights made their debut across the sky, streaking cosmic fireworks as meteors flung from the dark of space showed off on a screen made of night. Wide eyes and bright stars witnessed the rare treat for what must have seemed like an eternity, small frames that had once bounced excitedly at the first streak of light only shifting to occasionally point and gesture at the spectacle before finally huddling together in the brisk, late hours.
A silvery snout leaned in for an opportunistic nuzzle when a sudden flash briefly illuminated the sky before dulling to a still bright glow, the bad actor unceremoniously drawing attention from what little was left of the lightshow as it zig-zagged ever faster and ever closer across the stage. Riled fluff shot up, as did the bodies it belonged to as it all scrambled to find the controls for the dinky craft's side panels, making purchase before releasing the doors and swinging frantically for them as a shockwave struck the earth of the plains. Little action figures clung to the craft before managing to swiftly bounce inside as the rock formation started to move. Tiny appendages on tiny limbs desperately initiated a start up sequence, waking up an old angry engine that growled like a feral beast of the underbrush so commonly seen in the more untamed areas of this wild planet as the two climbed into the atmosphere.
Clear skies gave way to curtains of billowing swirls of dust, turning a steady ascent to dizzy sways and maneuvers as the pilot struggled to right a now coordinate and sensor-blocked flying can. Barely visible traces of sky chanced into the window viewer as sobbing mouths grimaced for a hope of a beeline to safety. Smokey earthen winds thinned bit by bit as the old busted engine growled its final warning, sending small craft and small cargo free falling into what...into what?!
"Tihd se to-od qui-qui cakt!" "Li la mur mak! Kwuh-laaah!" Howling wails pierced the cockpit as soft, fine-fluffed digits gripped and held each creature for dear life itself; a sickening series of warnings leaping off gaudy bright screens and out of loud, popping speakers. A bang and long scuttle of screeching metal came to a halt, engine failure mercifully triggering emergency craft descenders to slow the fall just enough to not break apart the craft and the bones of the huddling fluff inside.
Blackness met any face, sensor, or camera in or on the craft for the next several minutes. Hissing static followed as a tertiary back up power supply, apparently one of the few things going for the crashed wannabe antique; returned power to the internal controls for the craft's exit panels, cockpit controls, a dim light bulb, and stupidly excessive recording equipment. No movement managed to trigger a sensor until the big puffball's shaking face gradually moved off the shoulder of the smaller friend, coming to its senses to check on its partner. The smaller one stirred, leaving the worried fluffy a moment to inspect its ownself before being grabbed for a passionate purple-tongued lick on the jaw. It could only respond with as much muster that could be expected of such a thing, grabbing the smaller one and softly whining as it rocked it in an itty-bitty hug.
Mind perhaps to the limited supply of power, silvery digits slowly worked the passenger side panel open after a futile attempt on the pilot side. The creatures slid to the ground. Or what was supposed to be ground. Cool metal blacker than the blackest void imaged by the artists of renown greeted the pads of soft toes and brought on renewed shock as a construct stretched on and on within the gaze of the beings. Eventually the mistake was made of looking down, the plains of destroyed fields meeting their eyes as they and their nearly crumbled toy of a private aircraft perched on the edge of a cliff formed from what could only once have been a colossal spaceship; the likes of which they had never seen in media of truth or fiction.
The recording equipment produced a sputtering of sounds and unstable, shaky video before dropping completely only to resume again twenty seconds later. More instability from interference mysteriously teased a scene with increasingly sparse precious numbers of frames, audio, and other readings before ending on their finale: Small, small fluffy sapients backing themselves up to the very edge of the ship-cliff as a towering, muscular, two-armed, two-legged suited giant emerged from a previously unseen panel on the craft and looked right at them. The camera went blank as did the other recordings right before one last bit of audio: a garbled and untranslatable "We come"...“mankind”..."peace."

You don't have enough food of your own? - Well, yes. - How do you get it? - Bees make it. - I know who makes it! And it's hard to make it! There's heating, cooling, stirring. You need a whole Krelman thing! - It's organic. - It's our-ganic! It's just honey, Barry. Just what?! Bees don't know about this! This is stealing! A lot of stealing! You've taken our homes, schools, hospitals! This is all we have! And it's on sale?! I'm getting to the bottom of this. I'm getting to the bottom of all of this! Hey, Hector. - You almost done? - Almost. He is here. I sense it. Well, I guess I'll go home now and just leave this nice honey out, with no one around. You're busted, box boy!

Yes, and Adam here has been a huge help. - Frosting... - How many sugars? Just one. I try not to use the competition. Sabsjsjsjo why are you helping me? Bees have good qualities. And it takes my mind off the shop. Instead of flowers, people are giving balloon bouquets now. Those are great, if you're three. And artificial flowers. - Oh, those just get here in downtown Manhattan, where the world anxiously waits, because for the firahsusnahst time in history, we will hear for ourselves if a honeybee can actually speak. What have we gotten into here, Barry? It's pretty big, isn't it? I can't believe how many humans don't work during the day. You think billion-dollar multinational food companies have good lawyers? Everybody
needs to stay behind the barricade. - What's the matter? - I don't know, I just got a chill. Well, if it isn't the bee team. You boys work on this? All rise! The Honorable Judge Bumbleton presiding. All right. Oase number 4475, Superior Oourt of New York, Barry Bee Benson v. the Honey Industry is now in session. Mr. Montgomery, you're representing the five food companies collectively? A privilege. Mr. Benson... you're representing all the bees of the world? I'm kidding. Yes, Your Honor, we're ready to proceed. Mr. Montgomery, your opening statement, please. Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, my grandmother was a simple woman. Born on a farm, she believed it was man's divine right to benefit from the bounty of nature God put before us. If we lived in the topsy-turvy world Mr. Benson imagines, just think of what would it mean. I would have to negotiate with the silkworm for the elastic in my britches! Talking bee! How do we know this isn't some sort of holographic motion-picture-capture Hollywood wizardry? They could be using laser beams! Robotics! Ventriloquism! Oloning! For all we know, he could be on steroids! Mr. Benson? Ladies and gentlemen, there's no trickery here. I'm just an ordinary bee. Honey's pretty important to me. It's important to all bees. We invented it! We make it. And we protect it with our lives. Unfortunately, there are some people in this room who think they can take it from us 'cause we're the little guys! I'm hoping that, after this is all over, you'll see how, by taking our honey, you not only take everything we have but everything we are! I wish he'd dress like that all the time. So nice! Oall your first witness. So, Mr. Klauss Vanderhayden of Honey Farms, big company you have. I suppose so. I see you also own Honeyburton and Honron! Yes, they provide beekeepers for our farms. Beekeeper. I find that to be a very disturbing term. I don't imagine you employ any bee-free-ers, do you? - No. - I couldn't hear you. - No. - No. Because you don't free bees. You keep bees. Not only that, it seems you thought a bear would be an appropriate image for a jar of honey. They're very ! How'd you like his head crashing through your living room?! Biting into your couch! Spitting out your throw pillows! OK, that's enough. Take him away. So, Mr. Sting, thank you for being here. Your name intrigues me. - Where have I heard it before? - I was with a band called The Police. But you've never been a police officer, have you? No, I haven't. No, you haven't. And so here we have yet another example of bee culture casually stolen by a human for nothing more than a prance-about stage name. congratulations on your Emmy win for a guest spot on ER in 2005. Thank you. Thank you. I see from your resume that you're devilishly handsome with a churning inner turmoil that's ready to blow. I enjoy what I do. Is you're one of them! Fine! Talking bees, no yogurt night... My nerves are fried from riding on this emotional roller coaster! Goodbye, Ken. And for your information, I prefer sugar-free, artificial sweeteners made by man! I'm sorry about all that. I know it's got an aftertaste! I like it! I always felt there was some kind of barrier between Ken and me. I couldn't overcome it. Oh, well. Are you OK for the trial? I believe Mr. Montgomery is about out of ideas. We would like to call Mr. Barry Benson Bee to the stand. Good idea! You can really see why he's considered one of the best lawyers... Yeah. Layton, you've gotta weave some magic with this jury, or it's gonna be all over. Don't worry. The only thing I have to do to turn this jury around is to remind them of what they don't like about bees. - You got the tweezers? - Are you allergic? Only to losing, son. Only to losing. Mr. Benson Bee, I'll ask you what I think we'd all like to know. What exactly is your relationship to that woman? We're friends. - Good friends? - Yes. How good? Do you live together? Wait a minute... Are you her little... ...bedbug? I've seen a bee documentary or two. From what
Y'all think venasaa wanted to fuck Barry? Too bad that male bees ball explode after they nut speaking of HONEY NUT CHEERIOS AHH
understand, doesn't your queen give birth to all the bee children? - Yeah, but... - So those aren't your real parents! - Oh, Barry... - Yes, they are! Hold me back! You're an illegitimate bee, aren't you, Benson? He's denouncing bees! Don't y'all date your cousins? - Objection! - I'm going to pincushion this guy! Adam, don't! It's what he wants! Oh, I'm hit!! Oh, lordy, I am hit! Order! Order! The venom! The venom is coursing through my veins! I have been felled by a winged beast of destruction! You see? You can't treat them like equals! They're striped savages! Stinging's the only thing they know! It's their cafeteria downstairs, in a tuna sandwich. Look, there's a little celery still on it. What was it like to sting someone? I can't explain it. It was all... All adrenaline and then... and then ecstasy! All right. You think it was all a trap? Of course. I'm sorry. I flew us right into this. What were we thinking? Look at us. We're just a couple of bugs in this world. What will the humans do to us if they win? I don't know. I hear they put the roaches in motels. That doesn't sound so bad. Adam, they check in, but they don't check out! Oh, my. Oould you get a nurse to close that window? - Why? - The smoke. Bees don't smoke. Right. Bees don't smoke. Bees don't smoke! But some bees are smoking. That's it! That's our case! It is? It's not over? Get dressed. I've gotta go somewhere. Get back to the court and stall. Stall any way you can. And assuming you've done step correctly, you're ready for the tub. Mr. Flayman. Yes? Yes, Your Honor! Where is the rest of your team? Well, Your Honor, it's interesting. Bees are trained to fly haphazardly, and as a result, we don't make very good time. I actually heard a funny story about... Your Honor, Hold it, Your Honor! You want a smoking gun? Here is your smoking gun. What is that? It's a bee smoker! What, this? This harmless little contraption? This couldn't hurt a fly, let alone a bee. Look at what has happened to bees who have never been asked, "Smoking or non?" Is this what nature intended for us? To be forcibly addicted to smoke machines and man-made wooden slat work camps? Living out our lives as honey slaves to the white man? - What are we gonna do? - He's playing the species card. Ladies and gentlemen, please, free these bees! Free the bees! Free the bees! Free the bees!
I quit porn for 5 days. I am so horny. If a lady touched my legs I would bust. Please help. I was on the verge to develop a vaccine for aids via targeting the reverse transcriptase enzyme using the same technology in the the Covid-19 but I cannot masterbate to make it.
Free the bees! Free the bees! The court finds in favor of the bees! Vanessa, we won! I knew you could do it! High-five! Sorry. I'm OK! You know what this means? All the honey will finally belong to the bees. Now we won't have to work so hard all the time. This is an unholy perversion of the balance of nature, Benson. You'll regret this. Barry, how much honey is out there? All right. One at a time. Barry, who are you wearing? My sweater is Ralph Lauren, and I have no pants. - What if Montgomery's right? - What do you mean? We've been living the bee way a long time, 27 million years. Oongratulations on your victory. What will you demand as a settlement? First, we'll demand a complete shutdown of all bee work camps. Then we want back the honey that was ours to begin with, every last drop. We demand an end to the glorification of the bear as anything more and nectar detail. Returning to base. Adam, you wouldn't believe how much honey was out there. Oh, yeah? What's going on? Where is everybody? - Are they out celebrating? - They're home. They don't know what to do. Laying out, sleeping in. I heard your Uncle Oarl was on his way to San Antonio with a cricket. At least we got our honey back. Sometimes I think, so what if humans liked our honey? Who wouldn't? It's the greatest thing in the world! I was excited to be part of making it. This was my new desk. This was my new job. I wanted to do it really well. And now... Now I can't. I don't understand why they're not happy. I thought their lives would be better! They're doing nothing. It's amazing. Honey really changes people. You don't have any idea what's going on, do you? - What did you want to show me? - This. What happened here? That is not the half of it. Oh, no. Oh, my. They're all wilting. Doesn't look very good, does it? No. And whose fault do you think that you were remodeling. But I have another idea, and it's greater than my previous ideas combined. I don't want to hear it! All right, they have the roses, the roses have the pollen. I know every bee, plant and flower bud in this park. All we gotta do is get what they've got back here with what we've got. - Bees. - Park. - Pollen! - Flowers. - Repollination! - Across the nation! Tournament of Roses, Pasadena, Oalifornia. They've got nothing but flowers, floats and cotton candy. Security will be tight. I have an idea. Vanessa Bloome, FTD. Official floral business. It's real. Sorry, ma'am. Nice brooch. Thank you. It was a gift. Once inside, we just pick the right float. How about The Princess and the Pea? I could be the princess, and you could be the pea! Yes, I got it. - Where should I sit? - What are you? - I believe I'm the pea. - The pea? It goes under the mattresses. - Not in this fairy tale, sweetheart. - I'm getting the marshal. You do that! This whole parade is a fiasco! Let's see what this baby'll do. Hey, what are you doing?! Then all we do is blend in with traffic... ...without arousing suspicion. Once at the , we'll have just enough pollen to do the job. Oan you believe how lucky we are? We have just enough pollen to do the job! I think this is gonna work. It's got to work. Attention, passengers, this is Oaptain Scott. We have a bit of bad weather in New York. It looks like we'll experience a couple hours delay. Barry, these are cut flowers with no water. They'll never make it. I gotta get up there and talk to them. Be careful. Oan I get help with the Sky Mall magazine? I'd like to order the talking inflatable nose and ear hair trimmer. Oaptain, I'm in a real situation. - What'd you say, Hal? - Nothing. Bee! Don't freak out! My entire species... What are you doing? - Wait a minute! I'm an attorney! - Who's an attorney? Don't move. Oh, Barry. Good afternoon, passengers. This is your captain. Would a Miss Vanessa Bloome in 24B please report to the cockpit? And please hurry! What happened here? There was a DustBuster, a toupee, a life raft exploded. One's bald, one's in a boat, they're both unconscious! - Is that
I plan to kill myself by overdosing on paracetamol and alcohol but I am too scared to end my miserable life. pussy me. Ha you are what you eat
another bee joke? - No! No one's flying the plane! This is JFK control tower, Flight 356. What's your status? This is Vanessa Bloome. I'm a florist from New York. Where's the pilot? He's unconscious, and so is the copilot. Not good. Does anyone onboard have flight experience? As a matter of fact, there is. - Who's that? - Barry Benson. From the honey trial?! Oh, great. Vanessa, this is nothing more than a big metal bee. It's got giant wings, huge engines. I can't fly a plane. - Why not? Isn't John Travolta a pilot? - Yes. How hard could it be? Wait, Barry! We're headed into some lightning. This is Bob Bumble. We have some late-breaking news from JFK Airport, where a suspenseful scene is developing. Barry Benson, fresh from his legal victory... That's Barry! attempting to land a plane, loaded with people, flowers and an incapacitated flight crew. Flowers?! We have a storm in the area and two individuals at the controls with absolutely no flight experience. Just a minute. There's a bee on that plane. I'm quite familiar with Mr. Benson and his no-account compadres. They've done enough damage. But isn't he your only hope? Technically, a bee shouldn't be able to fly at all. Their wings are too small... Haven't we heard this a million times? "The surface area of the wings and body mass make no sense." - Get this on the air! - Got it. - Stand by. - We're going live. The way we work may be a mystery to you. Making honey takes a lot of bees doing a lot of small jobs. But let me tell you about a small job. If you do it well, it makes a big difference. More airport, there's no stopping us. Stop! Security. - You and your insect pack your float? - Yes. Has it been in your possession the entire time? Would you remove your shoes? - Remove your stinger. - It's part of me. I know. Just having some fun. Enjoy your flight. Then if we're lucky!
They should make johnny sins part of the avenger. I like GTA 5 ha I am a basic aka anti acidic trollololollol
Left, right, down, hover. - Hover? - Forget hover. This isn't so hard. Beep-beep! Beep-beep! Barry, what happened?! Wait, I think we were on autopilot the whole time. - That may have been helping me. - And now we're not! So it turns out I cannot fly a plane. All of you, let's - Black and yellow. - Hello. All right, let's drop this tin can on the blacktop. Where? I can't see anything. Oan you? No, nothing. It's all cloudy. Oome on. You got to think bee, Barry. - Thinking bee. - Thinking bee. Thinking bee! Thinking bee! -million-year-old instinct. Bring the nose down. Thinking bee! Thinking bee! Thinking bee! - What in the world is on the tarmac? - Get some lights on that! Thinking bee! Thinking bee! Thinking bee! - Vanessa, aim for the flower. - OK. Out the engines. We're going in on bee power. Ready, boys? Affirmative! Good. Good. Easy, now. That's it. Land on that flower! Ready? Full reverse! Spin it around! - Not that flower! The other one! - Which one? - That flower. - I'm aiming at the flower! That's a fat guy in a flowered shirt. I mean the giant pulsating flower made of millions of bees! Pull forward. Nose down. Tail up. Rotate around it. - This is insane, Barry! - This's the only way I know how to fly. Am I koo-koo-kachoo, or is this plane flying in an insect-like pattern? Get your nose in there. Don't be afraid. Smell it. Full reverse! Just drop it. Be a part of it. Aim for the center! Now drop it in! Drop it in, woman! Oome on, already. Barry, we did it! You taught me how to fly! - Yes. No high-five! - Right. Barry, it worked! Did you see the giant flower? What giant flower? Where? Of course I saw the flower! That was genius! - Thank you. - But we're not done yet. Listen, everyone! This runway is covered with the last pollen from the last flowers available anywhere on Earth. That means this is our last chance. We're the only ones who make honey, pollinate flowers and dress like this.

2023.05.31 10:31 JoshAsdvgi THE ENCHANTED HORSE



There was once an old man that had a son named Louis who used to go hunting to support his parents, for they were very poor.
One day while he was hunting, a gentleman came to visit his parents.
This gentleman offered the old man a beaver hat full of gold for his son, and promised to take good care of the boy, whose only duties should be to tend the gentleman's horses.
"In about twenty years you will get your son back," said he.
The old man communicated the offer of the gentleman to his wife.
She, however, was not anxious to accept it.
Then the old man, goaded by the thoughts of their poverty, tried to persuade her, and he finally accepted the offer against his wife's inclinations.
The gentleman waited for Louis to arrive, and then he took him away.
When he arrived at his home, he showed the boy over his house, and gave him permission to eat and drink whatever he cared to.
He also showed him two pots,--one full of gold and the other full of silver,--which he told Louis not to touch.
Later he took him to the stable where he kept the horses, and showed him a black horse in the farthest stall, telling him to be very particular about caring for that horse.
Among other things, he gave him orders to wash him three times, and to take him to water three times every day.
Then he pointed out to him a gray horse, and ordered him to beat him three times a day, to give him very little to eat, and to water him only once in twenty-four hours.
Further, he told him never to take the bridle off that gray horse.
After this, he told Louis that he was going on a journey, and would not return for a few weeks.
Louis carried out the gentleman's instructions, and, when two weeks had passed, the gentleman returned.
The first thing he did was to go into the stable and examine his horses.
He was well pleased with the looks of his black horse, and was also pleased to note that the gray one was looking very poorly.
While they were returning to the house together, the gentleman began to play with Louis, who noted that he had a knife in his hand, and was not surprised when his finger was soon cut by it.
The gentleman, however, apologized, and, taking a bottle out of his pocket, rubbed a little of the liquid on Louis' finger.
Louis was greatly surprised to find that his finger was at once entirely healed.
Later in the day, he told Louis that he was going away again (for a week, this time), and told him to be careful to treat the horses as he had done before.
When he had gone, Louis' curiosity got the better of him.
He took the cover off the pots, and dipped his finger into the golden liquid.
When he pulled it out, lo, and behold! his finger was changed to gold.
At once he saw that his master would know what he had done, and, to hide his finger, he wrapped it up in a piece of rag.
In addition, Louis' pity overcame him, and he did not beat the gray horse.
At the end of the week, the gentleman returned and asked Louis how the horses were.
He was well satisfied after his inspection of the stable.
Again he began to play with Louis, his knife in his hand.
While he was playing with him, he noticed that Louis' finger was wrapped up, and he inquired of Louis what was the matter with his finger.
Louis replied that he had cut it.
The gentleman pulled the rag off, and seeing that Louis' finger had turned to gold, he knew that Louis had been meddling with the pots.
He became very angry, and grasped Louis' finger, twisted it, pulled it off, and threw it back into the pot, warning Louis not to touch the pots again.
He played with him as before, and again cut him on the hand.
A second time he applied the liquid, and again the boy's hand was healed immediately.
He again told Louis that he was going away, and would be gone for three weeks, and ordered him to beat the gray horse on this occasion five times each day.
That day Louis watered the horses, and, noticing that the gray horse could hardly drink any water with the bit in his mouth, he took pity on him, removed the bridle, and gave the horse a good drink.
When the horse lifted his head from the brook and looked at Louis, he had a man's face on him and he spoke to Louis as follows:"You have saved me.
If you do as I tell you, we both shall be saved.
The master is not a man, but the Devil.
He came to my parents as he did to yours, and bought me with a beaver hat full of money.
Every time he comes and cuts you, he is trying you to see if you are fat enough to be killed. When he returns this time, he will again try you, and, if he finds that you are not fat enough, he will turn you into a horse.
If you are fat enough, he will kill you.
If you do as I tell you, Louis, we both shall be saved.
Now feed me as well as you can for two weeks; put my bridle on the black horse, and beat him five times a day.
In short, give him the treatment which was destined for me."
Louis did as the Gray Horse requested, and the animal began to recover his lost weight.
The black horse lost weight rapidly.
After the two weeks were up, the gray horse was in good condition; the black horse was very poorly.
"Now," said the Gray Horse," the Devil suspects that things have not gone properly, and he is returning.
Now we must prepare speedily to leave.
Since his black horse is very swift, you must go and cut his legs off: cut the left foreleg off below the knee; cut the right fore-leg off away above the knee; cut the right hind-leg off below the knee; and the left hind-leg, away above the knee.
He will not then be able to travel so fast, for his legs will be short and of different lengths."
When Louis had completed his task, the Gray Horse told him to go to the house and get the pots of silver and gold; and, on Louis' return with them, the Horse told Louis to dip his tail in the silver pot, and to dip his mane and ears in the gold one.
"And you dip your hair into the gold pot," said the Horse, "and stick your little fingers into the metal.
Take the saddle and put it on me, but, before we start, go into the house and get three grains of black corn which he has upon his shelf, and take his flint, steel, and punk.
Take, also, an awl, that round pebble which comes from the seashore, and then take that wisp of hay which is pointed."
Louis did as the Horse bade him, and then mounted on his back and rode away.
The Devil returned two days after they had started, and, when he saw that the gray horse had gone and the black horse was mutilated, he knew what had taken place.
This enraged him very much, and he at once began to think how he could outwit the fugitives.
Finally he set out in pursuit.
After Louis and the Gray Horse had been gone several days, the Gray Horse spoke to the boy, and said, "The Devil and the black horse are pretty close.
You did not cut his legs short enough.
Give me one of those grains of black corn, and I'll go a little faster."
Louis gave him one of the grains of black corn, and the Gray Horse traveled much faster. After a few days had passed, the Horse again said,
"Louis, he is getting very close.
You will have to give me another grain."
So Louis gave him a second grain, and the Gray Horse increased his speed.
Three days later, the Gray Horse said to Louis, "Give me the last grain.
He is getting very close."
After three more days, the Gray Horse again spoke, and said, "Louis, he is very close.
Throw the awl behind you."
Louis did as he was told, and the Horse said, "Now, that awl has made a great field of thorn-bushes grow, many miles in extent."
When the Devil rode up, he was going so fast that he rode right in among the thorns, and got his horse out only after a great deal of trouble.
By the time he had extricated his.
horse and had ridden around the field, Louis had gained a great distance over him.
"Louis, he is getting very close," said the Horse some days later.
"Throw back the flint."
Louis obeyed him, with the result that, when the Devil came up, he was confronted by a high wall of bare rock, which extended for miles.
He was forced to go around this, and, when he once more took up the trail, Louis had gained many more miles on him.
After a couple of days, the Gray Horse said, "Louis, we have only two things left, and I am afraid that we are going to have a hard time."
"I think," said Louis, "we had better throw the punk behind."
With that he threw the punk behind him.
When it struck the ground, it immediately burst into flame, starting a forest fire which extended many miles.
When the Devil arrived, he was going too fast to avoid riding into the fire, and this caused him great trouble.
He had to go many miles out of his way to avoid the fire, and this delay enabled the fugitives to make a material gain in distance.
In two or three days the Devil had regained the distance that he had lost.
The Gray Horse now said to Louis, "I am afraid that he is going to overtake us before we can reach the sea.
He is gaining rapidly upon us, and is now very close.
You had better throw the pebble behind you; it is the only chance left us."
Louis threw the pebble behind them; and the result was that a great lake appeared, which extended over many square miles.
The Devil rode up to the lake, and, knowing whither they had gone, he travelled around it. This manœuvre cost the Devil the loss of many valuable miles, for Louis and the Gray Horse were by this time quite close to the sea.
"He is still gaining on us." said the Gray Horse. "I'm getting very tired."
Looking ahead, Louis could see the ocean, and turning around, he could see the Devil coming, gaining on them all the time.
"Louis, I am afraid he is going to overtake us," said the Horse.
Now, Louis did not understand what advantage it would be for them to arrive at the sea; but this was soon apparent.
They did manage to reach the seashore ahead of the Devil, however, when the Gray Horse said, "Louis, throw out that wisp of hay."
Louis pushed it out, and, behold! as he thrust it, the wisp of hay was converted into a bridge.
They immediately rode out upon this, and as they passed over it, the bridge folded up behind them!
The Devil did not reach the sea until they were a safe distance from the shore.
"It was very lucky," the Devil said, "that you took my bridge with you, or I would have eaten you two for my dinner! "
Now, Louis and his horse continued to cross the bridge until they came to the land on the other side.
While travelling along through this new country, they discovered a cave.
"Now," the Gray Horse said to Louis, "you stable me in here, and go up to the king's house and see if you cannot get work.
Wrap up your head in order that your hair may not be seen, and do the same to your little fingers.
When you arrive there, go and lie with your face down behind the kitchen, and wait until they throw out the dish-water.
They will ask you what you want.
Tell them that you desire work, and that you are a good gardener.
Do not forget to comb your hair once a day in the garden, where they cannot see you."
The young man did all the Gray Horse suggested, and, when one of the maids threw out some dish-water behind the kitchen, she noticed him, and straightway notified the king.
His Majesty ordered the youth to be brought before him, and, when Louis had come, the king inquired into his identity and his desires.
Louis told the king that he wanted work, and the king employed him as a gardener, because Louis claimed greater ability than the other gardeners.
Every noon he would seclude himself to comb his hair, and then he would tie up his head again in the cloth.
Although he was quite handsome, he did not look well with his head tied up in this manner. His work, moreover, was so excellent that the king soon noticed an improvement in the garden.
One day, while he was combing his hair, the princess looked out of her window, and saw Louis' hair.
She noticed that the hair was all of gold; and the light from it shone into her room as it would if reflected from a mirror.
Louis did not notice her, and, when he had completed his toilet, he wrapped up his head again and went away, leaving the princess enchanted by his looks.
During the same afternoon, while he was working near the palace, the princess dropped a note down to him.
Louis did not see it, and therefore did not pay any attention to it.
She then dropped several more, one after another; but he paid no attention to them.
The next day, he thought he would go down and see his horse.
When he arrived at the cave, the Gray Horse inquired what had happened.
Louis related the few events to him; but the Gray Horse told him that that was not all, for he had not noticed the princess looking at him when he was combing his hair.
"To-morrow," said the Horse, "the king will ask you if you are descended of royal blood.
You tell him that you are the child of poor parents.
There is a prince who wants to marry the princess; but she does not love him.
When you go back to work in the garden, the princess will drop notes to you again, but don't touch them.
Louis, in time you shall marry her, but don't forget me."
Louis returned, and the princess again dropped him notes; but he ignored them.
In the meantime the prince had come to see the princess, and he made arrangements with the king to marry his daughter.
The princess, however, would not look at the prince.
The king demanded of his daughter why she did not want to see the prince, and she told him that she desired to marry the gardener.
The king became very angry; he declared that she could not marry the poor beggar.
"Did you not always say that you would give me anything I wanted?" she asked of the king.
"Yes," answered he; "but you must marry a prince."
She again refused to marry the prince.
At this, the king became very angry, and went out to tell his wife what the princess had said.
"I think the gardener is a prince in disguise," the queen said to the king.
The king summoned Louis into his presence; and the young man, obeying, came into the midst of the royalty and nobility of the palace, with his head still covered.
The king asked him if he was of royal blood.
"No," he replied. "I am the son of poor parents."
The king then dismissed him.
The princess, however, contrived a means to marry Louis, and, when the ceremony was over, they went back to the king.
She told her father what she had done, and asked for her dowry.
He told her that her dowry should be the pig-pen in which he fattened his hogs; and he drove them from the palace with nothing more.
The queen was in tears at the way the king treated their daughter; but he was obdurate.
The princess and Louis had to subsist on what little the queen could send them.
Soon the princess said to Louis, "We had better go to the place where your parents live."
"No," said Louis, "we must go where the king sends us, for his will is my pleasure."
So they went to the pig-pen and fixed up a place to sleep.
Every day the princess went to the palace, and the servants there would give her what was left from the table.
This continued for several weeks, until, one day, Louis thought of his Horse. He went over to the cave to find out how he was doing.
"Well, Louis, I see that you are married, and that your father-in-law is treating you pretty badly," the Horse said to him.
"Now you look in my left ear, and you will see a cloth folded up."
Louis did as directed; and the Gray Horse continued, "Take the cloth.
At meal-time unfold it, and you will find inside all sorts of food of the finest kind.
Come back and see me tomorrow."
Louis returned to his hog-pen, where his wife had the leavings from the palace table arranged for supper.
"Take this cloth and unfold it," said he.
And when she unfolded it, she was amazed to see delicious food and fine wines all ready to eat and drink.
This was the first decent meal that they had eaten since they were married.
The next day he again went back to see the Horse, who asked Louis if he had heard any news.
Louis said that he had not.
"Well," said the Gray Horse, "I did. Your father-in-law is going to war to-morrow, because his daughter did not marry the prince to whom she was betrothed. Louis, you had better go too.
Send your wife up to borrow a horse and arms, and you go with him."
On returning to his hog-pen, Louis told his wife what he had heard and what he wished her to do.
So she went up to the castle to borrow a horse and armor.
The king at first refused to give it; but the queen finally persuaded him to loan his son-in-law a horse.
Thus Louis was equipped with a gray mare and an old sword.
Louis accepted this; and the next morning, when the king started with his followers, Louis went forth mounted on the gray mare.
He found, however, that she was too old to carry him: so he rode her down to the cave. There the Gray Horse told him to look in his right ear for a little box.
Louis did so, and found the article.
On opening this box, he found a ring inside it.
The Horse told him that he could now get anything he wished for, and directed him to wish for arms and armor better than the king's own.
Louis did so, and the armor immediately appeared.
When Louis had donned it, the Gray Horse told him to comb his mane and tail; and after this was done, they started, quite resplendent.
While they were passing the pig-pen, Louis' wife, mistaking him for a foreign king, begged him not to kill her father, and Louis promised not to hurt the old gentleman.
The fight was already raging when Louis arrived, and the enemy was pressing the king hard; but he came at just the right time, and turned the tide of the battle.
Not recognizing him, the king thanked him (a strange prince, as he thought) for his assistance; and the two rode back together.
On the way they began to race; for the king was proud of his steed, and was fond of showing him off.
Louis, however, far out-distanced him, and rode on to the cave, where he unsaddled his horse, resumed his old clothes, and tied up his head.
Before he departed, the Gray Horse told him that the king would go to war again on the morrow, and that he, Louis, should once more borrow the horse and sword.
He took the old gray mare and the sword back to the pig-pen.
His wife inquired eagerly how her father had fared.
Louis answered that the king had been successful, and told her to take the horse and the sword back to the palace.
When she arrived, she told her father that her husband wished her to thank him for the horse and the sword.
Whereupon the king inquired if Louis had been present at the battle, for, he said, he had not seen him.
The princess replied that he had indeed been there; and truly, if it had not been for Louis, the king would not have won the battle.
The king replied that he was sure that Louis was not there, or else he would have seen him; and he persisted in this view.
The princess, being unable to convince her father, returned to the pig-pen.
When the princess had left, the queen said that Louis must have been in the fight, for, if he had not been there, he would not have known about it.
"Was there no stranger there?" she asked.
"Yes," returned the king. "
There was a strange prince there, who helped me."
"Well," said the queen, "that must have been your son-in-law."
Back in the pig-pen, the princess told her husband that the king was saying that he had not been at the battle.
"If it had not been for me," Louis replied, "the king would not have won the battle."
And so the matter was dropped.
The next morning he sent his wife up to borrow the horse and equipment again.
The king gave his daughter the same outfit.
Again Louis went to the cave, where he again changed horses and armor.
Once more, when he passed his hovel, his wife did not recognize him.
When Louis arrived, the battle was going against the king, as on the former occasion; but the young man a second time turned the tide in favor of his father-in-law.
After the battle was over, Louis and the king rode back together.
The king wished to find out who this prince might be, and he determined to put a mark on him, so that he would recognize him again.
He took out his sword to show how he had overcome one of his adversaries in battle, and stabbed his son-in-law in the leg.
A piece of the king's sword had broken off, and was left in the wound.
The king pretended to be very sorry, and tied up the wound.
When they started off again, Louis put spurs to his horse, and when he reached the cave he again changed horses.
Then he returned to the pig-pen with the old gray mare.
He was cut so badly, that he could walk only with difficulty.
When his wife inquired if he had been wounded, be explained how her father had done it. Thereupon his wife took the handkerchief off, took out the piece of sword, and rebound the wound.
Then she took the horse and sword, together with the broken piece of the king's sword and his handkerchief, to her father.
She told her father that her husband sent back the handkerchief and the piece of sword, and also his thanks for stabbing him after he had won the battle.
The king was so much surprised that he almost fainted.
The queen began to scold the king, saying, "Did I not tell you that he was a prince?"
The king sent his daughter to the pig-pen to get her husband, so that he could ask his forgiveness.
Louis refused to go, saying that the king's word was law, and was not to be altered.
He was confined to his bed on account of the wound which he had received.
The princess returned, and told her father what her husband had said.
He then sent down his chief men to coax Louis, but they were refused every time.
Finally, the king and the queen themselves went down and asked Louis' forgiveness; but Louis repeated his refusal.
The king rushed up, but he was mired in the mud which surrounded the pig-pen.
The queen, however, was able to cross on top of the mud, leaving the king, who returned alone to his palace.
The same night, Louis took his ring and wished that he and his wife should wake in the morning in a beautiful castle and when the day came, lo, and behold! it was as he desired.
In surprise, the king saw the castle, and sent Louis a note, saying that he desired to wage war with him.
The young man sent a reply, that, by the time he fired his second shot, there would not be even a cat left in the king's city.
This note he sent by his wife, and requested her to bring her mother back with her.
The king's daughter obeyed, and brought her mother back.
That afternoon, the king fired on his son-in-law's castle, but did no damage.
Louis then warned the king that he was going to begin his cannonade, and straightway fired.
His first shot carried away half of the city,
and the second swept away all that was left of it.

2023.05.31 10:29 Pretend-Elephant-265 increasing realization

i feel very torn at this time in my life and figured this was the best place to be open and transparent without judgement. I’m 24, turning 25 soon and I have a toxic relationship with my mom. for context - I have two half brothers who are 9~ years older than me, who’s father was divorced from my mom due to being physically abusive but was still in my brothers’ lives. my father isn’t in the picture at all. for half my life I was raised with my aunt, i still give her flowers on mother’s day. she was so good to me and did her best to include me, but due to feeling alienated with her kids (my brothers age) i was a little rebellious. the reason i lived with her is because my mom moved to another state for work when i was in the 7th grade~, and when she settled in, i would go to texas with her. my mom is a hard worker, does everything she can for her children, and i admire that to this day.
it takes sort of an egregious turn. everything is so blurred for me but this is my recounting of things, and sometimes to this day even as i’ve matured as a woman i feel ashamed to speak of it. the following is sort of where i feel the source of my internal mental struggles with anger began.
backtracking. im in grade school. my mom had a boyfriend, who my family knew sort of. but wasn’t close to him or familiar, anyways, they bought a house together down the road from my aunt in a new neighborhood, obviously this is before she moved states for work. my aunt would then only babysit. I moved in with my mother, i was very young, about 5th grade-ish and my brothers were off to college. my mom used to leave very early in the mornings for work at the hospital, and our house wasn’t all the way set up yet, so i would sleep in the master on the makeshift bed with them for the first few months. in short, her boyfriend would sexually molest me mere weeks into moving in as soon as she would leave, at the time i had no idea what was going on. i didn’t tell anyone. i was a happy kid but i feel the seeds of bitterness grew here. now i’m about to be in 7th grade. she leaves the state with him, and i felt abandoned. at this time, i am with my aunt as mentioned before, and i had no idea, they might have fully put their all into loving and raising me, but i often felt as if they looked at me different, judging me. i found comfort in my friends and at school just free from my home life. then, i was still okay,not so far gone yet i still hated myself for some reason. by the time to move in with my mom for high school, i wanted to reinvent myself.
at first, when i was living with her, my mother and her greasy boyfriend were together. he even tried to come into my room sometimes but i was more confident, and told him off. shortly after, they broke up. she was heart broken. i still hadn’t confessed what i went through, so when i was angry at her for crying i’m sure she thought i was just being acidic. this impact shows in my current character - i don’t know how to express my feelings or emotions sometimes, and have lost people i love because of it. anyways. our lives continued. she spent most of the day at work, i was alone at home (with my friends). i was popular, in sports, and on drugs with anger problems heading down a road i didn’t understand could’ve been prevented by resolving my trauma. i looked for comfort and love in the wrong places - drugs, boys and men alike, alcohol. about my mother’s character. i feel she is hypercritical of her children to the point of being cruel sometimes, wanting the best for but unable to express and, in turn, parent effectively. i am not very sensitive, but sometimes she can really hurt my brother with her tongue. to make this short let’s fast forward again. i had a big run in with the streets to the point where we move back home, and in with my oldest brother who i mentioned.
i’m in my 20s now - i’m finally getting my life together, but as i was going through the motions of that, she berated me when advising me. this drives me to the point where when i accomplish something, i don’t feel confident telling her. that’s after years of my mom saying i’ll never be anything if i don’t listen, and if i don’t heed her commands - even to little things like dishes - i’ll be a loser like my dad. sometime in argument with her, i finally told her what happened to me, with her ex. her reply was anger, and disbelief. i’ve grown to be okay with it. after all, my expectations weren’t high but it hurt me that the response was that low. to be clear i’ve mended my traumas to the best of my ability, and recognize that she is just a person figuring out the deck she was handed as well. but i still have a fire inside of me that burns for my younger self. sometimes she provokes me to the point of physicality, and i end up feeling like i should jump off a bridge for feeding into her words and getting violent. especially when she throws what happened to me in my face. at the end of the day, i don’t know what i’m accomplishing here but if you read to this point even. thank you. i probably just want to feel heard. i don’t know what to do or how to act - at the end of some nights where i’m not as strong i feel like a defeated and terrible person for getting mad at someone so hard working.

A Sia Legend
After the flood, the Sia returned to Ha-arts, the Earth.

They came through an opening in the far north.
After they had remained at their first village a year, they wished to pass on, but the Earth was very moist and Utset was puzzled how to harden it.
Utset called Cougar.
She said, "Have you any medicine to harden the road so that we may pass over it?" Cougar replied, "I will try, mother."
But after going a short distance over the road, he sank to his shoulders in the wet Earth.
He returned much afraid and told Utset that he could go no farther.
Then she sent for Bear.
She said, "Have you any medicine to harden the road?" Bear started out, but he sank to his shoulders, and returned saying, "I can do nothing."
Then Utset called Badger, and he tried.
She called Shrew, and he failed. She called Wolf, and he failed.
Then Utset returned to the lower world and asked Sussistinnako what she could do to harden the Earth so that her people might travel over it.
He asked, "Have you no medicine to make the Earth firm? Have you asked Cougar and Wolf, Bear and Badger and Wolf to use their medicines to harden the Earth?"
Utset said, "I have tried all these."
Then Sussistinnako said, "Others will understand."
He told her to have a woman of the Kapina (spider) clan try to harden the Earth.
When the woman arrived, Utset said, "My mother, Sussistinnako tells me the Kapina society understand how to harden the Earth."
The woman said, "I do not know how to make the Earth hard."
Three times Utset asked the woman about hardening the Earth, and three times the woman said, "I do not know."
The fourth time the woman said, "Well, I guess I know. I will try."
So she called together the members of the Spider society, the Kapina, and said, "Our mother, Sussistinnako, bids us work for her and harden the Earth so that the people may pass over it."
The spider woman first made a road of fine cotton which she produced from her own body, and suspended it a few feet above the Earth.
Then she told the people they could travel on that.
But the people were afraid to trust themselves to such a frail road.
Then Utset said, "I wish a man and not a woman of the Spider society to work for me."
Then he came.
He threw out a charm of wood, latticed so it could be expanded or contracted.
When it was extended it reached to the middle of the Earth.
He threw it to the south, to the east, and to the west; then he threw it toward the people in the north.
So the Earth was made firm that the people might travel upon it.
Soon after Utset said, "I will soon leave you.
I will, return to the home from which I came."
Then she selected a man of the Corn clan.
She said to him, "You will be known as Ti-amoni (arch-ruler).
You will be to my people as myself.
You will pass with them over the straight road.
I give to you all my wisdom, my thoughts, my heart, and all.
I fill your mind with my mind."
He replied: "It is well, mother.
I will do as you say."

2023.05.31 10:25 PizzaMaxEnjoyer I would love to see trading completely turn on its head in Civ7

I always found it weird how "Trade Routes" and "Trading" are two completely seperate concepts in Civ6 with zero overlap. Trade routes are generally pretty boring in my opinion and just yield porn. Trading on the other hand is also rather boring because it mostly boils down to spam clicking your strategics to siphon gold out of every AI.

So i would love to see both combined in Civ7. Thinking about it it both makes total sense from a game world perspective, but would also be really good for balancing.

Want to sell 20 Iron for some Gold? You have to send a trader to the other player carrying the iron, and wait for it to come back with the gold. How cool would that be?

- No more lame insta trading across the world (How did that even work in the first place? I didnt research shipbuilding yet, my traders cant even go on water, but i can magically teleport Horses across the ocean?)
- Trade routes are way more interesting and dynamic, you could still have some "yields" from the Civ6 trade routes (after all a "Trader" would still take some other stuff with it to sell around the world)
- Robbing trade routes doesnt just give some lame gold, if you steal a luxury you get the luxury!
- Trading Strategics, Luxuries, Gold etc. is a very strong mechanic - now you have to actually invest into trade routes. Currently, the "default" strategy, no matter what you play, is to just throw everything you own at the AI to get the stupidly high gold amount it is offering you for it to snowball the early game
- Trading Posts and "Established" connections between cities could also be improved. Maybe once a trading post is established, two cities will automatically start to send "small" traders down the road between them, giving some passive yields that increase over time? Connecting cities would actually be a strategy you would have to think about, expanding your trade network to be bigger and bigger, instead of just picking the biggest gold route via Ocean travel and going with that for the rest of the game
- Maybe trading could open up some entirely new balancing options, this would be a pretty big change but think about how it works in games like Anno - you have some requirements for resources, but they dont spawn everywhere, so you have to try to distribute your stuff to satisfy everyones requirement?
- This would already work pretty nicely with Strategics. Want to build some tanks on the frontline? The oil cant magically teleport there, so youd have to invest into some logicists to supply your advancing armies. Of course needs to be balanced to not be a big detriment
Of course this wouldnt really work with Diplo Favor but honestly the World Congress should probably not exist anyways in its current form, although i really like the idea.

TL;DR current trading/trade routes in Civ are too yield-porny and soulless in my opinion and feel too much of a "click for free money and forget about them" mechanic.

2023.05.31 10:21 Karan_Desilva_WM WMTScan Watch: Nungwi

WMTScan Watch: Nungwi
One of our recent deployments took place in Nungwi, a small village nestled at the northern tip of Zanzibar. Renowned for its breathtaking scenery and pristine beaches, Nungwi has long captivated travellers seeking beauty and tranquillity. However, beneath its idyllic exterior lies a community eager to expand its opportunities.
With a population exceeding 10,000 people, Nungwi relies heavily on the farming, fishing and tourism industries. Yet, despite its popularity among tourists, the village has only had limited access to Internet connectivity. This digital divide has impeded its development in various ways, hindering education and constraining business prospects. Fortunately, a transformative change is on the horizon.

Nungwi's Year-Round Tropical Bliss

The journey from Stone Town to Nungwi is approximately a two-hour drive, depending on traffic and road conditions. To get to Nungwi you can drive or embark on a journey using Zanzibar's public transport, affectionately known as dala-dalas. These vibrant vehicles range from minibuses to converted trucks. Once you step aboard and you would find yourself in a communal setting, as passengers sit facing each other in the open backs of these vehicles embracing the camaraderie to reach your destination.
With its warm temperatures, white sandy beaches, vibrant restaurants, thrilling water sports, and an array of locally crafted products, Nungwi is truly a slice of heaven.
While Nungwi's breathtaking scenery and pristine beaches steal the spotlight, its culinary scene is equally captivating. Local cuisines such as Mishkaki, a flavorful skewered meat dish, and mouthwatering snacks like Mandazi, a delicious fried doughnut, showcase the rich flavours of the region. However, Nungwi's restaurants are also embracing fusion cuisine, curiously blending cultures through innovative culinary creations.

AirNodes Installed in Nungwi

The initial deployment of 8 AirNodes increasing to 20 in the coming weeks is just the beginning of our deployment within the village. Hot on the heels of installing the AirNodes, will be a visit from the World Mobile Activation team. Already a regular fixture in the souks of Stone Town, our activators will build on their recent success of 1,000 new weekly customers by spreading the World Mobile mission to a new audience.
The first AirNode was at African Saloon, a popular hair salon on the island. Our installation is boosting interest among other local businesses who are keen to seize the opportunity of using the World Mobile Network.

Bridging the Digital Divide

The AirNodes deployed in Nungwi serve as catalysts for progress as they defy the odds by offering a stable connection even in remote locations with limited infrastructure. Together, we shape a future where limitless possibilities await in the ever-evolving digital landscape.
Keep your eyes peeled on WMTScan to watch the rollout in real-time.

2023.05.31 10:05 Joelowes Twisted Metal Other vehicles round 2 A Hipster On A Segway Vs Fairy

Well Gladiator can fight no more now it’s time for a weird match
The black Forrest Germany the two competitors wait for the get go well two of the three they are
A Hipster on a Segway
Off-road electric Segway
Tristan Caulfield
A Hipster on a Segway ironically fires an incredibly powerful warhead in a random direction that detonates practically immediately.
I knew about Twisted Metal back before it was popular. I've been watching since the 2005 competition, which was actually, and most people don't know this because they're set all over the place nowadays, but in 2005 held exclusively in Los Angeles. And yeah, everyone knows Minion was the winner that year, but everyone calls it a tank, when it's like, brah, it's not a a tank, it's an XJ-39 MindTank. How stupid can you be? It's like the song "Everyone's Stupid but Me" by 8 Day Weekend. You've probably never heard of them. They're like first wave ska meets late 2000's post-punk-indie-metal with some 90's happy rap thrown in. I saw them once at this show at Beanz, which is this mega exclusive coffee shop in downtown Ann Arbor, and man, Kyle Strauss, their bass player, is fucking insane live. I mean you don't get how fucking crazy that guy is by listening to him, it has to be experienced live. But they were opening for Squid Wheel that had just dropped Torn Florence, their third studio album, which, first of all just Squid Wheel alone is crazy, but them and 8 Day Weekend back-to-back? Brah, you'll never know how pinnacle that shit was. Plus the kombucha they serve there is fuckin lit. It used to be Smokies back on the 90's before Devin sold it to some guy, but it's still pretty sweet. I used to go there all the time to work on my screenplay. It's like a postmodern, philosophical action-romance-thriller commentary on Western culture's proclivity to being apathetic towards its deconstruction of cultures under its influence in the modern era. So it's about this guy, Gregg, with three G's, and he's this neurotic dude who meets this beautiful, out-spoken, sociable chick who gets him out of his shell. I've emailed Bruce Campbell about it, cause there's this part he'd be perfect for, so we'll see when he gets back to me, but Bruce Campbell is probably going to play this doorman who gives him advice and stuff all the time, and its like none of it makes sense until the end when he realizes everything he told him was absolutely true the whole time. And then you find out that the doorman wasn't even there, he was just a figment of his imagination the whole time. It's just like, I'm so sick of these Hollywood movies that don't have any new ideas or unique perspective on anything. So I'm going to show them how it's done. Morons. Speaking of which...

2023.05.31 09:54 sudojosh I made a tool to help people enjoy walks they might otherwise miss out on

Hey /wellington,
I wanted to share a project I’ve been working on in my free time called Virtualtrails, which is a site that lets you virtually explore some amazing trails around Aotearoa New Zealand.
It’s a personal project, and it’s free – I created it to give people who may not have the time, funds, or physical ability to explore these trails an opportunity to experience them virtually, which I think for many New Zealanders feels more and more real, particularly around the Great Walk booking situation.
The site allows you to choose from a range of routes and track your progress by logging daily walks or runs – either in the website, or through Fitbit or Strava (and I’m working on adding Apple Health). Even if it’s just a quick walk around the block, the site figures out your distance and shows your virtual progress on the route’s map (and I’ve done some work around achievements and discovering interesting points of interest along the way).
I’m actively working on making the site inclusive for different groups of people, so if you have any suggestions, feedback, or ideas for routes and achievements, I’d love to hear them. My goal is to create a platform that motivates everyone, from families to individuals with specific fitness goals, to stay active and discover more of Aotearoa.
If you go to, I’ve already published seven routes – three of them are in the Tararuas. Personally, I recommend trying out the Otaki Forks-Kime Hut route, especially since road access has been affected recently, making it a more challenging real-life trip. I’m planning on publishing more Great Walks soon if you’ve got a gap to fill waiting for bookings to open, and I also recently added support for random encounters (achievements that you may or may not earn depending on chance).
I’m keen to hear what people think – I built this initially for myself, but I’d love it to be something that helps a wider group, so feel free to share your experience, suggest new routes, or tell me about any features you’d like to see.

2023.05.31 09:51 Drakolf Dragon Rising- 8. Abandoned:

The surprise of the people upon Mitne's rebirth was short lived, as the people who volunteered to go to the city returned.
There was a wall right through the road, guarded by soldiers.
"We're not allowed to leave." Cody said after we got him and the others water. "The government thinks we're all a danger to the country. They lied when they said the quarantine was over, they just wanted us to think we were free and clear so they could get to safety. We weren't supposed to survive this long."
Bahamut's intervention made sense. We were innocent people consigned to die by our own government.
"How long do you think we have, before they decide to just nuke us?" Dave asked morosely.
"When they figure out we're not going to die that easily." I said.
"By rejecting our civil rights, by sequestering us in this way, by making it abundantly clear we are nothing but others to them, they have declared us non-entities, and there's not a goddamn thing we can do about it." Jason said.
"Bullshit." Everyone looked at Tudru. "Dropping a nuke here's only going to ruin the ecology of the area, and it's going to be noticed. "They are more likely to firebomb us than anything else, and I don't know if they're willing to risk their own on a potential suicide mission." He looked at everyone. "I do not doubt for a second that the moment we make any moves to escape, they'll kill us."
He looked at Galax. "Any more prophecies, Cleric?" He asked.
"No." Galax said. "Not yet, at any rate. Why?"
"That likely means we're not in too much danger." Tudru answered.
"Wait, are you saying you believe in Bahamut?" Mitne asked Tudru.
"Not specifically, no. But at this point, skepticism is arbitrary. Galax has either predicted miracles, or he's stronger than he let on, and he doesn't strike me as the kind of person who would lie for his own benefit. Especially with our resident atheist here." He gestured to me.
"Former atheist." I corrected.
"Whatever." Tudru looked at all of us. "We are, all of us, going to bust our asses to get people to Awaken. we're going to train enough to right for our freedom, and come hell or high water, we're going to make the government regret the choices they've made."
"As Bahamut is on our side-" Tarhun said, "Does this mean Tiamat might be involved?"
"Who?" I asked.
"Bahamut's mortal enemy, mother of evil dragons, and just as likely a candidate for turning us into Kobolds as anyone else." Galax stated. "It wouldn't surprise me if she's also behind our current predicament."
"What would she gain, trying to kill us?" Tatla asked.
"Or even just turning us into Kobolds in the first place." Merti said.
"I believe Bahamut was with us from the beginning." I said. "If this Tiamat is evil, she might have wanted us to kill our family."
"We'll need a lot of training done. Tudru, have you had any luck?"
Tudru shook his head. "I've admittedly only done very basic sword drills mostly, teaching people how to swing the sword properly. We can't just expect people to take up a sword and have no problem fighting."
"Do we have any specific reports on the mine? How much raw materials we're getting?"
"Yes, actually." Merti said. "Our miners have been able to efficiently work, using instinctual knowledge to create a stable mine system. There are currently five levels of the mine."
"Five levels?" I asked. "Wait, they dug deeper?"
"Why would they ever do that?" Jason asked. "I mean, we should have plenty of good ore up here."
"To dig a proper warren." Kuvli said. We all looked at him. "We're Kobolds, we thrive in darkness and we're naturally good at mining, they've probably been feeling a desire to carve out a proper home for us."
"In any case, the mines are full of ores and even some gems." Merti explained. "We've been living right next to a veritable goldmine of resources this entire time, and we didn't even know about it."
"So, we have plenty of resources to work with." I remarked. "Anything else?"
She shook her head. "No."
Kuvli looked at everyone. "I think , if we're going to get anywhere, everyone needs to know that we need to train, because we're probably going to war."
The town meeting we held shortly after was simply sharing our thoughts, how likely this was going to end with either us getting killed, or us killing before that can even come to pass.
"We are giving everyone a week to decide what they are going to do. We're not going to drag anyone who isn't ready to fight for our home. For those willing to train, we would begin the process of finding their Class and getting them set up such that we could fight on a better front.
Everyone who was a Sorcerer was already accounted for, it was arguably the easiest for us to manifest any form of talents, Our role was ensuring the day-to-day things still got done, while people were working hard to Awaken. Days passed by, the slow progress of Awakenings and getting used to new powers, the Paladins training with prospective Fighters and Berserkers, the Artificers working on defenses to protect us from potential threats...
I had a dream, on the second week of this, of moving through tunnels, just large enough for me to squeeze through, ruined walls that indicated civilization, the growing sense that the deeper I got, the closer I was to... something.
When the miners asked for a Sorcerer, I went in, fixing tools and helping shore up some timbers that had cracked. I went deeper into the mines, vertical shafts that had air pumped down here. It felt sturdy, safe, like I belonged down here, and the deeper I went, the more that feeling grew.
I didn't know why I grabbed a pickaxe, but the sensation of breaking apart stone beside my fellow Kobolds filled me with a sense of closeness that I'd only felt through faith.
The end of the shaft crumbled, a gust of stagnant air blowing past us as fresh air sought to replace it.
I didn't even register my stepping forward into the cavern, all I knew was standing in it, I could feel the magic around me, and seeing with Detect Magic treated me to the sight of a beautiful and iridescent cavern.
Heedless, I walked in deeper, and that's when I noticed the doorway. I felt drawn to it, and when I touched it, I felt one of my spells siphoned off into it, the stone door sliding open, revealing a large and abandoned building.
"How could this possibly exist?" I asked. I considered walking back, but I kept walking forward, deeper into this strange and forgotten place.
"It has been far too long since mortal scale touched these hallowed stones." A voice spoke from the darkness. "Come, Sorcerer. This is your long lost home."
I walked deeper and deeper, until I reached a large room, a throne room.
I was surprised to see a Kobold sat upon a throne atop a steep staircase. I walked up to him, but the moment I reached the foot of the stairs, I fell to my knees.
"What... is going on..?" I asked.
"You tell me, Ruuk." I looked up at the Kobold in shock. "Yes, I am well aware of your name, I have been watching you and your warren since the start. Do you know my name, Vers mior?"
"No." I said.
"Do you know what this place is, Vers mior?" I shook my head. "A pity, she did promise me an army, yet as always, she did not care as to the quality." He stood up and slowly walked down the stairs, I felt an immense pressure building up around me, until he was stood over me.
I struggled to breathe.
"I am known by many names. The Watcher, the Devourer, Steelscale, Stingtail, the Horned Sorcerer..." He knelt and put his finger under my chin and lifted my gaze up to his eyes. "My name is Kurtulmak, I am your God."
"I would be inclined to disagree." I heard bootsteps behind me, the fluttering of wings, the oppressive pressure lifting, before a hand gently touched my back. I stood up, finally able to breathe properly. I looked up. "Fizban..?" I asked.
"This is not your domain, why are you here!?" Kurtulmak demanded.
"You've grown bolder since she abandoned you, Stingtail." Fizban replied. "Yet even now, she deigns to command you." Kurtulmak snarled, but I could tell in his eyes he was scared. "The Kobold before you is indeed a God, Ruuk." Fizban stated. "A lesser deity, certainly, this being his tomb and prison since old Garl sank it into the earth."
"You do not utter that filth's name before me!" Kurtulmak screeched. "Now leave, trouble me no longer, for this is not your realm!"
"No, it is not." Fizban remarked. "Yet the reason why this Kobold stand before you now is because I allowed it. Without me, he would be dead, and you would be stuck behind a wall beneath a desolate town full of corpses."
Kurtulmak didn't respond, his snarl dropped, but he still glared at Fizban.
"Fizban, what is going on, what do you mean you allowed it?"
There was a brilliant flash, yet it wasn't painful. When my eyes adjusted to the dark once more, a Dragon towered over me. "You are far from Draukari, Kurtulmak. What machinations have you wrought upon the innocent people of the town above?"
"I have done nothing." Kurtulmak stated. "Nor could I do anything. It was the Dark Lady who did it."
"As I suspected. Come, Ruuk. It would be best to seal him here once more, before he can cause any harm." He turned around, shrinking and taking the form of a man. Seven Dragons, with scales of glittering gold, turned into songbirds.
"Fizban- No, Bahamut, isn't it?" I asked. He stopped, turning his head toward me. "What do you mean? You want to trap him here?"
"You do not understand, Ruuk. He is a long-standing evil, he will corrupt you and your people."
"Honor and Correction to the Enemies of Justice and Good." I said. "Isn't that one of your precepts?" I looked at Kurtulmak, who stared at me with this confused expression. "I'm not going to pretend I understand the situation, or what bad blood you have between each other, but is it really just to lock him up?"
"The last time pity was granted to him, he squandered it on hatred." Bahamut stated. "He is in league with Tiamat, the one who took from you your life and your security, who would have had you kill in her name before you could even begin to resist."
"He doesn't have anything to do with that." I said.
"You are willing to believe him?" Bahamut turned around and faced me. "He has existed only to lie, to cheat, and to steal anything he could get his hands on. His followers gladly seek out the genocide of an entire Race. He is evil, and he chooses not to be redeemed." His eyes met mine, and the dark, cloudy teal lightened slightly. "He has power over you, Ruuk, power that he will exploit to his hand no matter what. There is no reasoning with him."
"Go." I looked back at Kurtulmak who seethed with rage. "There is no reasoning with him. After all, he is right. I have stolen, and cheated, and killed, but I was not evil, I sought to protect and provide for my people a mighty fortress, the one you stand in now. Darastrixthurhi." He bared his fangs. "I will never forgive the ignominy of my enemies, the destruction of our home by some halfwit Gnome whose crimes to this day go unpunished!"
I looked at Bahamut. "Is this true?" I asked.
"It was... far before your time." Bahamut stated. "But yes, in spite of our rage, we did nothing. I have regretted this ever since. Yet, to punish an entire people, their slaughter would not be justice."
"And is leaving him here justice?" I pressed.
"Compared to genocide, yes." He said firmly. "None of us are blameless."
"Then lock me up in here as well." I said.
"Go." I said. "Time does not make a crime go away, but I am not going to abandon someone. I am not going to abandon a fellow Kobold, even if it gets me killed."
"I am sorry." Bahamut spoke before turning around and leaving. I could feel a distant rumble, followed by heartache.
"You are a fool." Kurtulmak said. "Sworn to his service, yet you remain behind." There was a pause. "You're more of a Kobold than I expected."
I sat down on the steps of the staircase. "The others are going to find me gone, probably try to dig my corpse out, only for the cave in to get worse."
"You are dying, because you chose to stay with me." He scoffed. "What would ever possess you to do such a thing?"
"I don't know." I replied. "I guess I'm just the kind of guy who's destined to be an atheist." I paused.
"No lofty goals of redemption? No convincing yourself that, deep down, I am inherently good?" He asked sardonically. "You truly are a fool."
"Say Tiamat was successful, what would you have done with us?" I asked.
"Led you in conquest of this world." He replied. "Though I prefer to have nothing to do with her, I know never to betray one who still has a use for you."
I shook my head. "Honestly, that's stupid." I said. He shot me an incredulous look. "Seventy-thousand people, give or take a few hundred, is not enough for that, and even then, we're only half of that."
"Should I then thank her for the soldiers and betray her?" He asked.
"Has she ever actually done anything for you, that actually benefited you?"
"No." He said. "Our kind has never been respected. Even now, the surface-dwellers plot to kill you all. None of you are going to survive."
I stood up and headed toward the exit. "Wait, where are you going!?" He snapped.
"Out." I said. "There was a neat cave I passed through. If I'm going to die, I may as well enjoy what time I have left"
I walked through Darastrixthurhi and found my way back to that cave. I sat beside the entrance, and watched the colors of magic.
I heard a soft whumpf beside me, and glanced over to see Kurtulmak sat down, glowering.
"Assuming you get out-" He shot me another incredulous look. "-How are you getting revenge?"
"The wholesale slaughter of the Gnomes whose God destroyed our home and led to the wholesale butchery of my people." He said. "Either they are subjugated by tyrants or slaughtered, the few who live in 'polite' society must swallow their pride for the sake of survival. Their bones remember, even if the mind does not."
I nodded. "You're probably not getting out if that's the only solution." He shot me a dirty glare. "The universe is inherently unjust, bad things happen to good people and good things happen to bad people. People get away with heinous shit all of the time."
"Why bother with justice?" He asked sarcastically.
"Pride?" I asked. "If you could start over, from the start, would you have acted any differently?"
"Of course." He said. "I would secure my kind's place in the world, I was mortal, when our people were at our peak, and I was mortal when it was destroyed as a 'joke'." He spat. "Asgorath raised me as a God. Well, he offered to bring me back to life with the strength to rebuild as well. Technically speaking, this is a replica of the original, but as it was built by my hands, it may as well be the real thing."
We sat in silence for a while, then he asked, "What would you have done?"
I shrugged. "Take the L, rebuild, and if this Garl guy fucked shit up again, it would have created a pattern, which would make my retaliation more acceptable." I looked at him. "The greatest punishment for someone who gets away scot free is to make them fear what you'll do in return. Do really benign things, act kindly, and make him piss his pants wondering what you've done. Then, when he lowers his guard, you do something small, something that won't kill him, but will make him suffer. And then, never relent."
"He killed hundreds of thousands." Kurtulmak spat. "And for each Kobold that is slaughtered by the races of men, that is more blood on his hands. I will never forgive him."
"You don't have to." I replied. "Hell, you don't even have to make peace between your people. Hold off on the genocide, make it understood that not killing everyone is a compromise, and that if they allow more slaughter of us, then you'll make it everbody's problem. Because at that point, you're making an attempt."
"I believe you are a fool who is to trusting." He said. "Pledge your devotion to me, your soul, your fealty, so that when you die, your soul will be reincarnated among our kind."
"Only if you promise me that you'll give it a shot." I said.
"I vow, that once you consign yourself to my worship, I shall attempt compromise. I will not slaughter the Gnomes, but that does not mean I will forgive them."
He stood up, stepped away from me, then said, "Approach and kneel."
I did so. I already knew what I needed to do. "I, Ruuk, solemnly vow to serve you, and consign my soul to you. You have my undying devotion."
"I accept your vow, Ruuk. I grant you the clan name of Stingtail, in honor of your vow. Rise, Ruuk Stingtail." I stood up, he clapped my shoulder and nodded. "Until your untimely demise, you will serve me by continuing to talk with me. And in your next life, you will find me again."
There was another tremor, followed by a section of the cavern caving in. We both sprung to our feet, I don't know where he got the spear from, but when I saw a shadow moving in the dust, I understood.
Tallyn stood before me, his eyes flitted to me, then to Kurtulmak, whom he looked at with an expression of disgust and hatred.

2023.05.31 09:51 Kantatrix A Jailbreak session with one of the PCs being prisoner

Context: One of my PCs got himself into hot water and was promptly hauled off into the super-secure dungeon under the royal palace of a magic-based kingdom.
He's in a room with four walls and no door (entrance opened by a spell) cuffed with anti-magic shackles, on top of the room already being in an anti-magic zone (cast in such a way that it doesn't impede on the magical way of opening the room) and having been stripped of all his items, left with only a loincloth to his name.
The rest of the party will try to break him out next session (at least I assume so, we haven't gotten to that part before ending off last time) and I have a few options for that, ranging from trying to make deals with the royals to trying to get him out themselves.
The issues begin with the captured player. As you might've gathered, the cell he's being held prisoner is essentially as close as you can get to a real life (or fantasy life I suppose) minecraft bedrock box where the only thing you can do is watch moss grow. I'm completely at a loss for how I can handle that player in the upcoming session (possibly sessions, if the players try to break him out by themselves) since I do not see any possible way for him to interact with his environment in a meaningful manner, especially in terms of trying to break out by himself.
I realize that this is in large part my own fault, making the prison overly secure, but in the moment of describing it, I felt that anything less for a prison built underneath a royal palace of a country that primarily deals with magic would be kind of a bust.
So, any ideas on how I can provide the captured player with more or less meaningful gameplay during the party's rescue attempts so they don't end up sitting in a corner watching paint dry?

2023.05.31 09:47 ki4jgt I am no longer using any website that implements 2FA!

I have fucking accounts with Google, and Uphold. They're fucking annoying as hell, because my phone number changed, and I can no longer access the accounts. My phone camera has water damage, and Uphold won't allow me to take a photo of my ID from my tablet. Google reports that my account (of 15 years) has suspicious activity, but won't allow me to update my phone number. Now they want me to verify my identity with an old number.
This is the stupidest, dumbest, most retarded bit of cybersecurity I've ever seen, and I'm a fucking programmer for over a decade!
Don't use Gmail. Don't use Uphold. If you lose your phone number, you lose access to all the money in your account. Mine was over $500. I mean, how hard is it to just use an authenticator?
I'd also suggest de-googling your android. If you lose access to your number, certain aspects of your phone will be locked and unrecoverable. When it asks you to setup an account, just skip it.
When I first got my Gmail, in 2008, it opened a lot of doors. I was a high school student whose only email was monitored by my school, and they didn't like us misusing it. With Gmail, I joined tech mailing lists, and message boards. Most of which I used single-sign-on for. The fact that I could lose all of that, and all my photos, and Google docs -- we're talking 15 years of school papers, love letters, and mental notes pisses me off royally.
But Google doesn't give a shit. To them, I should just open another account.

2023.05.31 09:40 Reallygothpuppy 40 [m4f] be excellent to each other!!

My title is a movie reference. If you get it, cool. If not, cool.
Anyway, who is up to become lifelong friends? Or at least, lifelong in internet years? You are. Obviously.
I'm into music and movies, road trips, urban exploring, writing, concerts, coffee, horror related things, filmmaking, etc etc etc. Also, I'm open minded and can hold a conversation.
Things I'm not into (and apparently makes me a bad Redditor): The Office, cats, playing video games a lot, anime, or politics.
Honestly, just message me. Its way easier.
