This is the essay i made, i pinged you here cause my DMs weren't working and i couldn't private message you
The story of NORTHEPTION. An APAC Japanese rags to riches story.
Disclaimer: This org has a very long history and im not really familiar with the Pre-BLAST system of Japanese R6 History. There may be a few parts i get wrong or looked over incorrectly so please forgive my errors as Japan is not a region i actively monitor.
I'm also not gonna go thru the whole history of this organization since this org has been in siege for 4 years with 4 years of constant roster changes. If i were to describe everything here, it would be a 10K word post and I'm not doing that lol.
So, why did i make this post? It's cause this roster story is INSANE. As i was researching more and more, I found myself to be baffled at what this roster did. This roster has it all. Upsets, revenge, failure, redemption, high stake moments, rags to riches. It's one of the most beautiful stories I have ever seen in Esports and i hope you will enjoy me explaining it to you!
Enjoy the post!
So your starting your day. You get your premium coffee because your a relatively wealthy Japanese citizen. Your looking into siege esports for a possible investment. As weeks go by, you finally see this team, this Japanese roster. A team just won the Japenese CL S10 Qualifiers. They are orgless. They look promising so you decide to sign the team on October 5th, 2019. You feel happy as your are now in the Siege ecosystem and the players are delighted by having their first org. Little did you know, that this would be the most roller-coaster of a decision you have ever made in your life.


The team is formidable but they aren't dominant either. As the league gets incrementally more competitive, NORTHEPTION are forced to make more and more roster changes. They made 10+ roster changes in these 3 years.
They threw stuff at the wall and tried to see what sticks but nothing was sticking. Eventually, they aren't good enough for Japanese T2 and they don't win relegations for Japanese tournaments. They get grouped at Japanese Nationals. The roster has run it's course.
The only player that you need to know from this hectic constant roster change frenzy time period is Febar. He joined this roster on June 5th 2020 after the original roster was already signed. He's on-and-off with the roster until he leaves to go join a promising T2 Japanese team. This team will head to relegation against a Tier-1 team at the end of 2021.
Disclaimer- It's not really clear when they signed the roster since the history of CL Open Quals aren't registed on Liquidpedia.

1st half of 2022 (Core Roster Rebuild)

So, you've just been relegated. What do u do? You scrap the roster of it's worst parts, probably keep the best player on the roster and rebuild.
Remember the Fmr player i was talking about earlier? Rebar? Well, he got dropped just before relegations and the team didn't wanna play with him over another player. Ironically, that T2 roster ends up losing to a team called "Reject" and they end up getting promoted to PL.
So what now? You scrap the whole roster and start a foundation with Fmr player RebaCurrent player Marol and pick up 3 of the best players that you saw promise in.
  • There was another T2 roster called "ORTHROS GRIT" in the 2021 Japanese national league. This group of ragtags aspiring new players qualified thru Opens which was surprising. Even more surprising, they beat NORTHEPTION and top their group to go to playoffs. They are against Tier-1 FAV Gaming in round 1. Everyone thinks, oh, FAV are gonna destroy them 2-0. What ends up happening is that FAV get 0-7'd on their first map then bring it back 8-6, 8-6 on the 2 other maps to win it. These rookies had potential. (2/5ths of Orth Grit had joined Fnatic later on and 1 other is in PL)
NORTHEPTION during the rebuild sign the 2 promising rookies from the Orthros Grit roster Vbort and Tyopi and then they finish it off with a signing of CoPaHiPo who previously played with Febar on NORTHEPTION years ago.
NORTHEPTION basically starts over again in T4 with an experienced trio from the old North roster + 2 new promising rookies. This is the roster in March.
1 month later in April... Turmoil strikes the roster in the heart. Vbort is so good that he gets invited to a Japanese Tier-2 team named IGZIST so he obviously takes that offer. The now 4 man roster decides to drop Marol too. It turns to a 3 man roster. What makes the timing so harsh is that the open quals for Japan's national league is in 2 weeks so they need to find players FAST.
They do open tryouts, similar to the one Beastcoast/CAG did in 2022 where they put out a google docs page on twitter and ask for your rank and any scrim clips you have. From these open tryouts, they signed a player with no competitive experience, "Nina", on April 28th of 2022. Little did they know at the time that this high risk pickup ended up becoming the best player on the roster. A very similar story in North America with DarkZero player Panbazou.

Testing this new roster out. (2nd half of 2022)

  • NORTHEPTION's 5th ended up being a temporary Ex-CAG Pro player named "Shokei". He had experience and would make a good temporary slot in. Sort of like J90/Lags slotting in for Soniqs in North America. It was never supposed to be permanent, only to make sure that they could play.
This was the most important tournament. This was where all the pressure was building up towards. So with the 2 new additions to the roster that they added in a rush, they nervously went into the open qualifiers for T2 Japan not knowing how it would go.
NORTHEPTION with their new roster, get into Japan Nationals thru an open qualfier. They play Bo3s and do decent. They aren't dominant since they lose a map and went overtime alot but they 2-0'd most teams. They get 1st in opens which surprises the Japanese community. They have now qualified for Japanese relegations at the end of the year just from getting 1st at the beginning of the year in this tournament. They already secured a huge W but the W doesn't end here yet.
After they get 1st in their T2 group, they go to Japanese playoffs where they are put into groups with better teams and a Tier-1 team named Reject. They beat the Tier-1 APAC North team in 2 Bo1s. 7-2, 8-6.
They also throw 2 rounds against the worst team in their group, leading them to winning in overtime. They get 2 points instead of 3 points. They end up missing getting out of groups by a single point, because they threw 2 rounds. It's expected to throw rounds if your a new team since your comms aren't perfect. They showed their glimpse of potential with this new roster from beating this 8th place Tier-1 APAC North team twice but sadly it wasn't enough.

Post-Japan National Stage 1

So since Shokei was just a sub, they have to pick up another player to replace him. While they did well and had upsets, they still weren't content with barely getting eliminated in groups.
They do open tryouts, again! to get the new 5th player. Post a tryout google docs on twitter, run the scrim partners, evaluate, yada yada yada, you know, the usual. They told themselves, Since the no-experience player Nina was such an insane pickup, then why wouldn't a second fresh rookie be good? Lets take a fresh new mechanical promising player with lots of motivation to play and teach them how to play comp. So they picked up a second person with no experience.
They pick up ShuReap from the google docs tryout page. The guy has never played competitive before or been on a team. All the team knows is that this guy is mechanically gifted and has high ranked stats. Little did they know that they got even more lucky and this guy is better than Nina who was already a monster 🤣🤣🤣🤣

Japan Nationals. Stage 2

They have this new roster. Time for Japan Nationals for stage 2 of 2022. They're eager to test this new roster.
They have to go thru the open qualifiers again. Instead of losing a map and constantly going into overtime like last time, they utterly massacre the competition. They don't even go into O.T to win games like last time. You can visually see the improvement.
Now that they finished destroying the open qualifiers to get 1st, they go into groups where they got grouped last time. This was the real test to see if the roster improved, by hitting a new high. So what happened in groups with this new T3 team?
Well, They dominate their group. They only lose once and it's in overtime 6-8 against a good team. They win most other games in regulation and come out comfortably on top with a first place group finish. Now what? Well now they move out of the pan into the fire, literally... They have to verse 2 APAC Pro League teams. Fnatic and then, if they win that, Reject who has since made roster changes to become better.
So what happens? They 2-0 Fnatic and 2-0 Reject 😭. Granted, they were close maps but it was still a 2-0. So now they're at the Grandfinals after 2-0'ing 2 pro Teams. They are up against SCARZ, who are a T2 Japanese team. You'd think that this T3 team would win after beating 2 Tier-1 teams dominantly right? Nope. SCARZ 2-0'd NORTHEPTION in the grand final. Not even a map going to O.T. They came in a disappointing 2nd place after having a miracle run in their home league.
They massively improved but would they be able to conquer a relegation battle?

Preparing for a relegation battle

After stage 2, the Japanese Nationals format changes. Stage 3 playoffs for Japan Nationals doesn't exist for non-tier 2 teams like NORTHEPTION. All that exists are relegations for the bottom 5 Japanese Nationals teams. Reject is in this list.
"B-b-but u/ArcanicTruth i thought there were no relegations?" Yeah that confused me too, it's what i thought too lmao. It's apparently not for Tier-2 leagues. There's gonna be "auto-promotions" to get into the "Tier-2" league for 2023. It ended up being code for saying there are still relegations for Japan since they're gonna directly get the 8 best Japanese teams so were gonna find out who they are thru Japanese nationals.
Remember their first Japan Nationals with a new rushed Nina pickup where they ended up getting first in the open qualifiers? Yep, the reward for that was getting invited to a relegation battle for T2 Japan League. Stage 3 of Japanese nationals had no playoffs because it invited BDS/Damwon for an even bigger inter-continental playoffs. You had to play the open quals to get to relegations but NORTHEPTION already qualified so there was no point.
The reject roster that came in 3rd place in APAC North ended up being bottom 5 in the Japanese Nationals league. So they ended up having to play relegations 😭. If they wanted to get auto-promoted, there's a chance would have to relegate this team in a Tier-1 vs Tier-3 match.
Format: There are 2 groups of five. The 5 bottom Nationals teams and the top 5 winners of the open qualifiers for stage 1, 2, and 3 of Japanese nationals. These teams will end up in different groups. If you get 1st in your group, you get auto qualified (2 teams). If you get 2nd in your group, you verse the 2nd placed team in the other group in a Bo3. If you place 3rd-5th in your group then you get eliminated from the tournament.

Despair, Doubt, and Fear

Now, beating 2 pro league teams as a T3 team is a major accomplishment. If Japan's richest orgs were not keeping an eye on the roster before, they were now after the nationals performance. So, Fnatic decides to pick up one of NORTHEPTION's players. "Tyopi". One of their best players are now suddenly gone. NORTHEPTION were in trouble having such a deep impactful roster change a month before the most important esports match of their lives. They've had pressure before but definitely not like this.
Here's where it gets even more crazy. NORTHEPTION, for months, prepared for relegations. Their long-time player, CoPaHiPo, LEAVES the team to go to the reject roster they were training months to beat. Bro just abandoned his friends for the enemy 😭.
All that is left of this former T3 David vs Goliath roster is Febar and his insanely gifted ranked stars that he taught how to play the entry role competitively, Nina and ShuReap.
Most of the experience on the roster is gone and they decide to do tryouts again. This time, they don't pick up a complete ranked star but someone who has at least some comp experience. NORTHEPTION picked up the best player from the 2nd best T3 Japanese roster "Father's Back", Sayochan. This guy was a top 5 rated entry player in Japanese Nationals league with T1 pros in it. He's the only who went overwhelmingly positive on entry when his whole team went negative on entry. He has lots of experience too so he was needed. He's also a rookie too, guess they just love their rookies 😭😭😭m
NORTHEPTION can't resist their ways and pick up ANOTHER unknown player called "YuKiz". This guy has at least been recorded to be on a team by Liquidpedia. He's definitely extremely inexperienced enough to be counted as a new competitive player.

The final battle

The groups get announced and the pro league team is in the other group. For them, this is a blessing. If they can beat some of middle of the pack Tier-1 teams then they can surely beat Tier-2 teams, right? Well... No. They barely survive groups and end up getting 2nd place. Now they have to verse the 2nd place teams on the other group. The NORTHEPTION players check to see who it is, and the gods have a laugh. It's the reject roster, a Tier-1 team, TIES in points with the t2 IGZIST team. Both have 10 points. So the tiebreaker goes to round count and IGZIST won ONLY 1 MORE ROUND to get first 🤣🤣🤣. The gods wanted a drama filled revenge relegation match. A match where careers would end are against former teamates, a Fmr teamate who abandoned this roster to go to another roster.
They get to work against a former teamate who left them at their most crucial moment together as a team. It reminds Febar of when he was dropped just before relegations in 2021. As much as this is an Esports match, it's also deeply personal and has drama. NORTHEPTION with a new roster have only a couple weeks to practice for an important relegation match.
The match happens:
  • Map 1. NORTHEPTION wins 7-4
  • Map 2. Reject wins 7-5
  • Map 3. NORTHEPTION wins 7-3
NORTHEPTION relegated a top 3 APAC North team from Tier-1 while being a T3 roster.
The "reject" roster was a roster that was 8th place in stage 1, 5th place in stage 2, and 3rd place in stage 3. NORTHEPTION relegated a top 4 APAC.N team and stole their spot like a bunch of badasses.

The Present

We move to the present with enough history. NORTHEPTION get grouped with Fav Gaming and then they beat them too getting them grouped. NORTHEPTION move into playoffs and have to fight CAG, the best Japanese team historically.
I, again, kid you not, come into playoffs and 2-0 the historical best Japanese team, CAG. It's not even close, it's dominant.
This team will verse CREST for a major spot in Europe on April 1st. Personally, i think NORTHEPTION are actually gonna lose because they always win against Tier-1 teams and lose against Tier-2 teams. I know crest is technically Tier-1 but still, it's Tier-1 in name only since they literally just got into Tier-1. They still have Tier-2 tendencies.
NORTHEPTION will go down as one of the most inspiring APAC stories in Rainbow six siege if they can make it to the major. They skipped Tier-2 and relegated a top 3 APAC North team as a Tier-3 team. They decided that they weren't gonna try to get failed players who's only choice it was to join a T3 team but instead try to develop their own talent from mechanically gifted players they found thru an open tryout method.
Out of all the APAC rosters in siege, i like this one the most.

I live in Jamaica/Canada/Niue/USA, why are you posting on a Saturday?!
Because I'm writing this from Europe in the future where it's already Sunday. Timezones be crazy.
Why are there a bunch of non-board games in the board game list?
Because the Tabletop games category on Kickstarter includes anything remotely related to board games and sometimes things slip through my filters.
Why is this future award winning board game and literal saviour of humanity missing from your list?
Sometimes my filters get a bit overzealous and discard actually valid projects. If you feel something is missing for this reason, leave a comment and I'll add it (maybe).
Can I donate all my money to you?
Can you help me promote my game?
Please no. I make lists. Nothing more.
Your list is full of errors and now there's cheese dust all over my cards!
Indeed, this fine piece of code runs purely on happy thoughts, so anything can happen. Leave a comment and I'll see what I can do.

Deathversary: Eazy-E
Died on March 26th, 1995 at 30 years old, of AIDS related disease.ref
Rapper and Music Producer Eric Wright, known professionally as Eazy-E, passed away on March 26th, 1995. He was 30 years old.
Wright, who was born in Compton, California, began his musical career in the mid-1980s, performing in several musical groups before becoming a solo artist. In 1986, he formed the group, N.W.A., and gained notoriety for his creative and provocative music with his solo album, ‘Eazy-Duz-It’.
In 1994, while working on his second solo album, Wright was diagnosed with AIDS and, according to family and friends, it was his association with intravenous drug use that was the likely cause. He was hospitalized and died two weeks later.
In the years since Eazy-E's passing, he has been honored through tributes and remembrances. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame honored him with induction in 1997 and MTV and VH1 have included him multiple times on their “Greatest of All Time” lists.

2023.03.26 15:10 e-is-for-elias Some of the Non-Mythological Cryptids of the Philippines.

Some of the Non-Mythological Cryptids of the Philippines.
Since i've seen only 1 post years ago about cryptids from my country and instead of bothering to ask here, I did some research on some of the known or less known elusive cryptids from this side of the South east asia. I had a hard time researching these because most articles even in books tend to mix pure mythology and folklore from reports of cryptids that dont dwell from it.
This post WILL NOT include the most infamous and well known mythological creatures depicted in philippine modern media that people here may know of (Manananggal, Tikbalang, Duende, Aswang, Tiyanak, Mambabarang, Etc.) but some of the creatures listed dwelve in the spectrum of old legend from our ancestors before the country got colonized from the spanish more than 300 years ago as we all know some legends were told from word of mouth that may hold some truth in it from time to time.
The Amomongo, known as the "Philippine Bigfoot" is a creature of Philippine cryptozoology described as hairy, man-sized and ape-like with long nails. The term may have its roots in the Hiligaynon word amó, which means "ape" or "monkey". the cryptid was thought to have been nothing but a legend or folklore within the natives of the island of negros accidental until a recent attack was documented. Elias Galvez and Salvador Aguilar reported to Mayor Alberto Nicor and the police that they were separately attacked by a “hairy creature with long nails,” on the nights of June 9 and 10, 2008, in Cabungbungan, Brgy. Sag-ang, La Castellana, Philippines. Aguilar who was able to escape from the creature, was treated at the La Castellana Emergency Clinic for scratches on different parts of his body, police said. Galvez, on the other hand, who was also attacked by the creature, was rescued by his companions, Nicor told the Daily Star on June 12th. Brgy. Sag-ang residents described the creature to be about 5 feet and 4 inches tall, and looks like a monkey. Sag-ang Brgy. Capt. Rudy Torres has confirmed reports of the existence of such creature, called amomongo (gorilla) by residents. The creature has also allegedly victimized chickens and a goat, who ate their intestines, in May 2008. Torres said the creature usually strikes where there are no barangay tanods (village guards or paramilitary elements) around. He called on barangay residents to be vigilant, especially during night time. People have not been roaming around the barangay at night since the attack against Galvez and Aguilar, Nicor said. Barangay residents should put out a bait to capture the creature, Nicor suggested. Brgy. Sag-ang in La Castellana is located at the foot of Mt. Kanlaon , which has many caves. The creature could be hiding in one of the caves, Nicor said. Mayor Alberto Nicor said amomongo is not a witch or aswang but a wild animal. He theorized it is not remote for an amomongo to live in Sag-ang, considering that the area is at the foot of Mt. Kanlaon. He added the animal may have been suffering from hunger. “This is one possibility because there may be no food now in the mountain. Or it might be that amomongo habitat has been disturbed by humans, thus, it runs wild.” This Cryptid may have been the most well documented cryptid in the country in recent time but due to no more further sightings there is little to no evidence this cryptid.
The Mantabungal is known to the Tagbanua of Palawan, in the Philippines. It is found primarily in the forests of Mount Victoria in Baraki, and is the most feared of the mountain demons. Mantabungal is described as like a cow or small elephant in body and voice, but lacks horns. It has a long coat of shaggy hair that reaches the ground. Its monstrous mouth has two pairs of huge incisors – two above and two below – that it uses to tear its victims to shreds. One man reported hearing bovine moos while gathering gum in the mountains. Spooked and disoriented in the darkness, he ran aimlessly into the forest as far as he could and spent the night shivering miserably under a tree. When he returned to camp, he found that the mantabungal had destroyed everything he had touched. His hut, gear, and even the firewood had been dismantled and chewed to bits. People have speculated that it may be a long lost relic species of Gompotherium that was encountered by early indigenous people and was passed on as a legend. the speculation may hold some truth as to how the species managed to cross to the archipelago millions of years before the landbridges were separated and may have survived before dying out during prehistory, the description of Mantabungal differs however because of the shaggy hair and its small size that was described from the animal and it may have been a subspecies but it is unlikely.
Kugtong is a local term for an unusually large grouper or Lapu Lapu/pugapo fish found in the waters of Cebu island. One popular version is the Kugtong in General Milling Corporation located in Lapu-Lapu City. This Kugtong is said to be large enough to devour a human being. Locals of the island city of Lapu-Lapu know too well the story of a grouper fish living under a milling company. The fish is said to be so big that it can swallow a person whole. Some people would say that it has razor sharp teeth and scales allegedly because it mutated due to the biological waste products of the milling company. A variation of this story states that the owners consider the fish lucky and that it is fed a live person to continue bringing in business abundance. Although reports of giant grouper reaching the size of more than 5 feet have been caught and documented in the philippines (such as in this photo of one that was caught in palawan island during 2020), It is speculated that the fish may be an unusually sized old Giant grouper that was too large and became a local legend within the region.

The Mameleu is described as a sea snake with a huge body “as large around as a carabao’s”. This cryptid has two imposing white horns growing on its head, each thirty fathoms (dipa) long. In other versions of the creature, instead of horns, it possesses impressive tusks. The Mameleu is armed with long, menacing, sharp teeth and its scales function like armor; hard and impenetrable. Its eyes burn like torches in the darkness of the deep. When angry, the sea creature spits out green water. It is believed that the Mameleu lives in the deepest parts of the seas around Western Visayas. Some fisherfolk are said to have heard its long and loud thundering bellows. Reports of sightings are erratic, but almost always in the same general area around Panay and Negros Islands from 1932 to as recent as 2007 were the last known sighting was from a fisherman off the coast of Negros near Nadulao Island.
Giant Pythons are separate species of the reticulated python of East Asia, ranging from India, Bangladesh, Thailand, Indonesia and down to the Philippines. These specimens exceed the generally accepted upper length of 33 feet; in some cases they supposedly reach up to approximately 70 feet. Thomas Headland, an anthropologist that lived in the philippines for 24 years with the native Agta-Negrito tribes that were hunter-gatherers on Luzon Island until recently, described a quarter (26 percent) of Agta Negritos men had been attacked by a reticulated python in the past, most bearing the scars to prove it. Headland also confirmed six known fatalities of Agta Negrito people by pythons between 1934 and 1973. In one chilling case, a python was found after killing two children. The father killed the snake while it was in the midst of devouring a third child headfirst, who survived. Those killed also included full-grown adults. The authors believe that fatalities would likely have been much more common if the hunter-gatherers did not have access to iron knives and guns. There have also been reports of Giant pythons that were estimated to be 40-50 feet in length that the tribes had encountered and hunted but said reports havent been thoroughly verified and may have been an overestimation.

Giant Crocodile sightings have been prevalent in other areas in the Philippines particularly within the area of Agusan Del Sur where the infamous "Lolong" as the largest crocodile in captivity was captured. Lolong measured 6.17 m (20.2 ft) and weighed 1,075 kg (2,370 lb) and was named after the late crocodile hunter Ernesto “Lolong” Conate, who was leading the hunt for a rumored monster crocodile near Lake Mihaba when he died of a stroke just days before the real monster croc was hauled in alive. That hunt began after a local fisherman and a 12-year-old girl disappeared and were presumed to have been killed by the croc, just the latest in a string of alleged man-eating croc attacks in the area stretching over 20 years. Meanwhile, there have been speculation from residents that Lolong was "smaller" and not the prime suspect of the recent deaths within the region and reports of an even bigger monster female crocodile that was estimated to be more than 30 feet have been reported after the capture of Lolong and persisted in Agusan del Sur and around the Agusan River to this day, despite the fact that no others have been caught anywhere near its size.

Pinatubo Monster - One of the more interesting aquatic phenomenons to hit the world stage hails from the Zambales region of the Philippine island of Luzon, where as many as five large creatures have been reported swimming in the Tikis River, near the former mining village of Buhawen. Dubbed by the local Aeta tribesmen as “Pinatubo Monsters,” these animals have sent ripples of terror throughout the fishing villages located in Tikis river basin. Described as huge, black, serpentine creatures — much like Florida’s Muck Monster — the Aetas claim that these animals are unlike any eel, fish or snake that they are familiar with. The first accounts of these animals date back to November 5, 2002, when an Aeta boy apparently mistook one of the animals for a floating log, only to become consumed with terror when the beast moved. The second major encounter occurred on January 12, 2003, when a cadre of eyewitnesses claimed to have seen a seven-foot long, three-foot wide, black animal undulating silently down the river. Interestingly enough, Lake Pinatubo was formed after Mount Pinatubo erupted on June 15, 1991. Mount Pinatubo being located near the boundaries of Pampanga, Tarlac and Zambales provinces in the Philippines offer a summit crater lake that is the deepest lake in the country at 800 m (2,600 ft) deep.

The Filipino secretary bird was a cryptid bird reported from the Philippines by French naturalist Pierre Sonnerat, who visited the islands in 1771 to 1772. He described it as similar to the African secretary bird (Sagittarius serpentarius), with longer feathers in the lower portion of its crest, and and the outer part of its tail. Secretary birds are not known from anywhere outside of Africa, but Karl Shuker suggests that some specimens could have been taken to the Philippines by early traders. Alternatively, Sonnerat may have been describing the then-unknown Philippine eagle (Pithecophaga jefferyi), a bird of prey with a notable crest but short legs, based on second-hand reports.

The Illigan dolphin was a cryptid cetacean reported from the Bohol Sea off Mindanao in the Philippines, known from sightings made by W. F. J. Mörzer Bruyns, who also reported the Alula whale, Greek dolphin, and Senegal dolphin. The Illigan dolphin had a distinct "ploughshare head," compared to that of the Pacific white sided dolphin (Lagenorhynchus obliquidens) or a porpoise (Phocoena sp.). It was brightly-coloured, with a dark brown dorsal surface, orange and yellow flanks, and a pink underside. When Mörzer Bruyns observed the Illigan dolphins, he could see no resemblance to any known species. However, between his sighting and the publication of his Field Guide of Whales and Dolphins (1971), the melon-headed whale (Peponocephala electra), which is often seen near islands including the Philippines, became better-known. Mörzer Bruyns and Bernard Heuvelmans felt that the Illigan dolphin closely resembled this species, but continued to distinguish it by its brighter colouration.

The Death Dealing tree of the Philippines - An account of the cryptid tree appeared titled as “Escaped From the Embrace of the Man-Eating Tree,” in the American Weekly, Jan. 4, 1925, While exploring the Mindanao region of the Philippines, a planter from Mississippi came across a dark gray colored tree that stood 35 feet and was 80 to 100 feet in diameter, surrounded by human bones and emitted a foul smelling odor like carrion. The planter noticed a human skull lying underneath the shade of the tree and went in to further investigate. As soon as he was about to investigate, his guide suddenly stopped him and pointed at the tree in panic. The planter was soon horrified to discover that the tree had a branch reaching for him. Not much is known for this cryptid tree and there have never been further reports due to the remote accessibility of the region due to terrorist conflict that made it hard to access the inland forest regions of the island.

There have been more reported cryptids in the philippines that was not based on mythology or folklore but i'll still try to find and research some of them. will have a part 2 in the future.

2023.03.26 14:46 Challenged_by_Krill Tried writing a simplified analysis the other to help explain the situation to a friend, this was what happened instead. Also to the Citadel guy, this post is designed to help you lose with dignity, how do I know? I wrote it.

(This post isn't for everyone, TLDR at bottom)
There’s a reason these stocks are trading at extremely low prices. The puzzle has enough pieces in place now that the endgame is all but clear. If the share price were significantly higher at this stage I’d be much more concerned.
It’s called a bear trap. Bears are investors betting against stocks. Bears are usually hedge funds that cheat to guarantee victory and so stoping a HF campaign to bankrupt a company was considered impossible. They owned the market. But by doing the only thing their algorithms weren’t programmed to predict, millions of individuals holding, buying for and direct registering Gamestop shares for a shockingly long period of time, we won.
They had already lost, in January of ‘21, and to stop that tide they were forced to reveal their hand and expose their vulnerabilities by frantically hiding an untold number of shares that, according to market rules, should never have existed in the first place. Superstonk tracked, catalogued and nullified every illegality, saw beyond each and every hastily introduced legistive stopgap, through layers of complexity designed specifically to evade detection and what we found was a game of hot potato being played on the biggest stage in the world, the Central Bank Stage. This is a monumental achievement in and of itself for now the most entrenched and disguised among the oligarchy have begrudgingly been forced to reveal themselves. Think Scooby Doo times infinity.
Make no mistake, while the elite will desperately continue to maintain the status quo at all costs, unique to this conflict is that for the first time in human history the demand for greater cohesion among Heads of State and Central Banks will force the men in black suits to surrender one of their most effective tools of control. The threat of international conflict potentially leading to a cataclysmic event. In finding a common enemy the elite will ironically be forced to overcome their manufactured divisions to save their own lives. Filling the vacuum once dominated state and corporate propaganda will arise a competition for authenticity and transparency.
This Revolution has been underway for well over a year. Credit Suisse is the first shift of the tectonic plates and as they scramble, the elite are utilizing a kind of high speed digital “underground” railroad to share information and collaborate in a manner unprecedented. There will be rapid declassification of state secrets to facilitate a defense. They are facing the potential of diminished generational legacy which is a visceral threat to the very future of their gene pool.
But this threat is inevitable, it is a step forward in human collective evolution, it is a species adapting to, and finding clarity within, an environment shift occurring at lightning speed. Tomorrow’s digital transformation creates cognitive alignment among larger and larger groups of people, from a greater variety of cultural backgrounds, utilizing the sheer power of numbers and the compounding nature of shared individual perceptions, this shift in communication greatly increases both the group’s ability to establish consensus and set an agenda. This means real people will tangibly influence policy without reliance over reliance on a representative government which will naturally mitigate the corporate monopoly over cultural norms.
And so it will be interesting to see this unplanned international detente of sorts between the various iterations of the corporate dominance over central governments, be it the Internationally ubiquitous but Stateless oligarchies with a hand on every significant lever, to the state and local governments puppeteers who use bribes to open the door to institutional control over market mechanics, to the select few oligarchies so effective in their command over the narrative that the illusion of participatory governing appears so authentic it masks even the criminal activity in plain sight.
Will this conflict be defined by greater opposition between the Web3 community of tomorrow and the institutions tailored to an obsolete technology of yesterday be dominated by a crippling fear based approach from old money or by their acceptance of the inevitable seismic shift in power dynamics. A shift that will force them to open enlightened discourse with the pawns they once manipulated with ease. (think British Monarchy but stateless and worldwide. We are the parliament in this analogy).
That’s the fork in the road, it’s the next big step, a defining moment in human history and within it are extraordinary implications for the future. This next part is important.
At some point we’re going to have to find a representative way to break proverbial bread with even the more reviled of our opponents to broker a kind of rudimentary short term peace followed by the first ever crowdsourced, Constitution amended in real time for a digital populace no longer hypnotized by State propaganda to determine policy.
A blockchain supported global community that accounts for our inherent right and our absolute imperative to assert authority not through the hollow words of an agenda-less protest but manifested by the efficacy of our actions.
We didn’t hold up a sign until the “rights” guy stamped our wrists and gave us access to policy decisions, we developed a high speed network of our own. Where they controlled the state of the art technology to disseminate information, we had an extremely minimal degree of separation among hundreds of thousands to millions of unique minds which facilitated information sharing at a speed rivaling theirs. Their strategic advantages was trumped by an essential galaxy of uniquely crafted stars of human perception each enhancing the value of the next. The power of one mind is finite and not significantly greater than an average mind when considering the scale of intelligence disparity on Earth alone, forget about the infinite scope of the universe. Each mind, in ways too complex to explain, multiplies the power of the next by a power of 2. We won by unlocking the true World Wonder, the compound interest of each individual perception lasering in one one one specific event which created an explosion of consensus building to counter Buffets 8th World Wonder; the compound interest of unfettered wealth accumulation. They didn’t have enough minds, the deviation of mean intelligence between the two groups and the advantages that this disparity provided the elite was overcome by sheer number of prisms through which the information was filtered, reframed and ultimately weaponized against them by the galaxy of household investors.
To bring it back to the specific mechanics presently at play, a relatively small in number of bad actors representing a contingent of the elite, operating under the full authority of the Central Banking system, wrote a series of codes early in the machine learning era, that essentially just kept playing an updated version of the same rigged circus game. Retail investors were simply to powerless and divided to understand it let alone overcome.
By exposing the hidden underpinnings of this machine through the collective infiltration of one specific representative stock (GME) an obvious fatal flaw was discovered. This code was essentially universal in its control over order flow but, after years of research, the exhilarating theory emerged that winning in just one relatively battlefield (GME) would shatter the entire corrupt system due to it having never been programmed to capitulate. This House of Cards we discovered had always been protected from the any kind of threatening breeze by the Citadel walls but once beyond that wall you’re almost offended that they never considered an additional defense..
They relied on last generation algos that buckled under the unrelenting pressure of two straight years of an impossible retail stand. Web2’s final days saw a social media engagement that allowed for a human adaptation to market manipulation that nullified their ill gotten advantage.
Unaffiliated retail investors poured billions into a single stock and maintained a fluid consensus throughout a host of misinformation campaigns. Within that collective adaptation to information sharing at an unprecedented and highly accurate clip there existed a variable not accounted for by the early algorithms proving once again the necessity of entropic increase in variables over time to eliminate the deadly certainty of prediction devices.
When the machine’s broke they just kept doubling down creating an unsustainable number of illegal shares, colloquially known as naked shorts, to such an unfathomable degree as to threaten the stability of the the entire system and ultimately the world economy. They did this because the algos never programmed to capitulate continuously chose to simply survive another day despite exacerbating the inevitable failure. It’s like they kept pouring kerosene on the wood pile so as to distract themselves from the matches that would soon be the only remaining option.
The machine was running on auto for so long that once it was compromised the frantic C Suite decision makers only remaining option was to create the biggest bag of excrement the market has ever seen and that’s the story of how the mall store that you find scattered in nostalgic memories of those innocent and magical wonder years exposed the entire fraudulent market, then used that knowledge to bring it to its knees..
And just as predicted here, with an extraordinary degree of accuracy, one of the largest and most structurally important banks in the world, having spent two years trying to unload just one of the untold bundles of GME shares collapsed under its weight. Despite the greatest minds working round the clock for a solution, despite access to unlimited resources and extraordinary influence over the legislature, they found no way to negotiate this uniquely human wall standing firm against unapologetic, self serving corruption. A wall propped up by the hundreds of thousands of household investors with an integrity so unyielding as to turn the institutions most functional strength in to its kryptonite by removing the weapon of psychological manipulation and replacing it with clear eyed, crowd sourced due diligence.
Retail won. Retail earned their moment in the sun, and they will do will to not suppress that feeling of pride. Feel it, marinate in it, enjoy it then move on from it. Pride can lead to hubris, hubris to carelessness, carelessness to mortal error. Tale as old as time just ask Ken Griffin.
If retail tries to refuse entrance of the legacy generations of the 20th century elite to whatever Web3, AI etc becomes, then not only have we just guaranteed future conflict but, more importantly, we’ve failed to find the balance that promotes the most effective use of collective progress by excluding valuable sources of information who can help exponentially increase the collective understanding of our former enemies mistakes so as to avoid repeating them.
The future will be shaped by how well these two former enemies can become peers. There are two options forward.
Option A: It is the victors (retail) who will have to do the bulk of the heavy lifting at first which will feel uncomfortably similar to the previous dynamic. Don’t be dismayed, this will simply demand an initial deep dive into the technology itself to help create a mutually beneficial environment. This dynamic will evolve to promote greater and more valuable self fulfilling experiences engineered using the wisdom of the group (same thing we do here). The individual shares his new experience with the group and more valuable information is added to the pool of knowledge and understanding. This is all just an incredibly rapid turnover of the same process that has always spurred advancements.
Option B is the option that’s almost always chosen when the underdog wins, an appeal to pride, an unquenchable desire for retribution born of fear and insecurity. We cannot prevent this dynamic, it will eventually play out in one form or another, but we will soon find a common enemy much greater than man, an enemy only matched by all men working together. E Pluribus Unum.
Should we choose option A and successfully tailor the technology to ensure its success, we will have finally grasped the utility of our exceptionalism. Instead of random genetic adaptations to the unpredictable environment, which is the process that has traditionally defined organic evolution, we will have effectively wielded the technology with such scale and precision so as to facilitate the best environment in which to adapt. Selecting the environment first is an absolute game changer.
This is the moment man begins to fast track his own ascension and it will be an era of exploration so fantastic as to render all the so called great expeditions before it a mere orchestral diminuendo before the exhilarating crescendo.
TLDR: We won but now, somewhat ironically, it’s our job to assimilate the crooks responsible for immense suffering in the name of apparent unmitigated greed into the Web3 they so vehemently tried to strangle in its infancy.
This is a technological shift that would strip them of their legacy advantages, exposing them as imposters in an era of transparency. They’ve masked themselves in propaganda and they over valued capital accumulation this realization will be just as much of an enlightened journey for our journey here.
Of Note: This post is not for everyone, it’s speculative, somewhat haphazard and the bigger picture analysis is ripe for criticism.
However, while there are foundational weaknesses in some the supporting details, I will strongly defend the general theme, the appeal to a focus on improving the environment to help improve the individual, as opposed to the demand that the individual adapt to the existing environment despite its glaring inefficiencies has always separated the humans from the animals. Ironically it is the Apes who should start considering and planning for a future that is rapidly approaching, a future that will not wait for quiet contemplation, the time for action is now. For the Apes

First Part Start Previous Next

Journal Entry: 33. Date: 1/7/1. Name: Greg Geroge.

So apparently I'm in charge of combat reediness of the personnel on ship. Well, not like, ship-to-ship, but in case of repelling boarding actions or an away mission. Okay, okay. Well, that's a job I can do. There's a decent enough range in the armory, and I could run the grown ups through some tougher drills. It might ruin the reign of terror on the quarters deck by team toddler, though. Shame. Pops is pretty insistent that I actually carry out the duty, as if I would do anything else, but he's kicking himself for being lax in that area. Well, that's understandable. I just still want to be DI for the kids. It's fun. anyway, Master at Arms. An office. I don't know how I feel about this. I worked very, very hard to keep from being promoted out of my MOS, but here I'm just happy to have a useful job at all. Then again, I don't like giving orders. Training is different.
Shit, I need to think this over more.
It was a good mission. No casualties, no collateral casualties. Got all of the officers, and I doubt anybody will try to hurt my family again. Not after that. Fucking hard to hold back, but the dead don't learn lessons very well. Plus, I didn't have the time to really do it properly. Plus no drop pods, so scouting ahead wasn't really an option. Still, I'm post-mission down. Starting to go over all of our actions, all of my orders to see if I could have run it any better. I can hear Dr. Johan saying that it's perfectly normal, and is the brain's way of developing strategies to manage stressful situations. Thanks, internal therapist voice, that's always a good one.
This means I go quiet. Which freaks everybody out. Well shit. Now, I don't want to drive my family away like I did with the new brothers. At least there's not a fucking legend keeping us apart. But I had to have some chats. Like, mostly out loud chats to put everyone at ease, but also Linus needed a talking to.
No denying it Linus went through something pretty terrible. He did very well under pressure, very brave, very smart, all that kick-ass shit. It's still affected him. So, I had to have a chat with him about how he's viewing the events and himself. Not the kind of thing you should have to do with a five-year-old. Had to be done though. Don't want him to grow up like me.
In less depressing news, the Bleivuses have an actually competent justice system. It's adversarial and protects the rights of the accused, so they're being a lot more fair with the captured gangers than I would have been, but I'm a vengeful bastard. They did stick to my threat, though. Kind of. Bread isn't really an option for some of the races, but something called nutripaste is, which sounds like their version of CRAYONs. Good enough. The sheer numbers, not just from my planetside mission, but also the Bleivuses restoring order to the station, had them call in a ship full of Magistrates, and what basically amounts to SWAT and some highly disciplined patrol teams called a Justiciar. The dudes have a class of ship that's whole deal is law enforcement, which makes a lot of sense considering that they're all about ships and shit, but I kind of thouthg their system just sort of used station postings for that kind of thing. Nope, turns out when shit goes wrong it goes really wrong and they have a system in place for running a large number of criminal trials after something like this. Which is relevant because the leader of their SWAT dudes wants to debrief me. I'm actually kind of interested in meeting a Bleivus operator. Might even be kind of fun.
Still need to talk things over with Pops. I think... I think this is life after service. I need to talk to Sarge too. I was pretty harsh with him.
Am I still me without my MOS?

Log: 6000001.0.19, Personal, Captain Yormdrill

Things will be well.
Things are of course, better than they were, but all is clearly not well. My children have been traumatized, my crew injured, my ship marked for valor, yet things will be well. The crew has shown tremendous courage and dedication. Like the Lord Justiciar said, we had the right, but not the duty. However, how could we shirk in the face of such suffering? How could we let the good people of the station labor under the boots of murderers and thieves? We were not the only ship to be offered a mark, but Gregory's medal trapped me into accepting it. There were captains who were happy to have their ships marked. The rescue tugs with the most stars lived the shortest lives. I still remember how my uncle wept when his ship was decommissioned, and the sting of pain I still feel over what happened to the In the Endless Dark Life Finds Life. It isn't only my father and old friends I grieve.
Once again, Gregory is an immense help to the ship. His mere presence has buoyed the spirits of all the children, and many of the adults. Furthermore, he spoke with Yoivdrill about his experiences in a way I would have struggled with. I shall of course have to speak with him too, but Gregory opened the door, which I am grateful for. There were some surprising things in how he went about it. Imagine waking up like that! Stars, what an awful thing to contemplate. I suspect a more detailed telling is forthcoming, but we haven't had an opportunity to sit down for another quiet chat.
The Major of the Landers wants to debrief Gregory and me, which I have no opposition to. I'm hoping that we can get some information on the poacher, as clearly he had some connection to the local gang. Though gang is perhaps not the right word. Crime... crime family? Crime syndicate? Crime something. There's more work to do about them, but they had the bright idea of keeping literally all of their high value hostages in one location. The same location of their leadership. Which means that the planetwide coordination of the syndicate is in shambles, and local authorities are no longer under threat of important people losing loved ones. I expect the electronics seized will also have some information the public will find very edifying.
My anger has cooled somewhat, but the sight of the corrupt barrister who started this entire mess missing one of his arms was immensely satisfying. Stars know how that happened, but he deserves it.
Trevdi and I had a lot of stress to relieve. With all of this stress management, we might end up expecting another child soon.

Dear Diary,

Just because everyone is safe doesn't mean everything is okay. Greg let me listen in to his conversation with Yoiv, and it was...
I think I'll just write out what I remember:
"Hey Linus, may I come in?" he asked, and Yoiv must have signed yes, because he went into Yoiv's room and started, "You know you should talk, to work things out, but you don't want to talk about it. You feel a certain way, and you're hoping if you don't say it out loud it'll go away."
"How did you know that?"
"Well, I felt a lot like that when Ray died, I felt a lot like that. I felt like it was my fault, I felt it all the way down in my bones for years, and years. But I was a child, and the thing that attacked us had the strength of an adult. If I had fought, we would have both died. I know that in my head, with my mind, but I felt like it was my fault for running for so long that it still hurts."
"So you're thinking about how you got kidnapped. You're thinking it's your fault that we had to go and fight."
"Well, If had never gone camping, I would have never gotten kidnapped in my sleep, would have never been rescued by the animal shelter, and never met you, and never lost control in the veterinary office, and never insulted a criminal lawyer, and thus he wouldn't have ordered you to be kidnapped. Is it my fault?"
"Did you try to fight?"
"What did you do when they took you away?"
"I waited for the bad guys to stop looking and got away."
"And rescued a whole bunch of other kids."
"Which was very kind and brave of you. I wanted to tell you that I was very proud when I heard."
"Um... I just did what I thought you would do..."
"You helped us win. Knowing that will help, but the feelings you have... Sometimes I still feel like the bad things were my fault. I know that's not true, but I feel it anyway, and it hurts. I have a doctor... I had a doctor to help me with that kind of thing. He said that it's normal to have the feelings, that it's normal to hurt because of them, but it's not okay. Like it's normal to hurt when you fall down, but that doesn't mean you're okay. You follow?"
"I think so..."
"So, since you're hurt, you need to heal, but it's not like a bump on your knee that you can just put some medicine on, and you're scared to ask what to do because you don't know how to explain it."
"That's right!"
"For me, what helps is helping. If I can be useful to people, it makes the pain go away. Do you know how I found out?"
"... Did you figure it out with your doctor?"
"Yup. He's a lot smarter than me, so you'll need to talk to someone smart. Like Pops."
"I... ca-"
"You can try."
"I... I can try."
"Good," Greg said with a wide smile, "something else that helps is getting some exercise. You wanna find some grown-ups to shoot?"
They ran out of our quarters cackling. Sometimes I swear Greg is just an old kid.
Still, his talk with Yoiv has me thinking...
I'm thinking...

Dear Logary,

SnEAky said he is proud of me.
DaDDy said the same thing.
I do not think it was very special.
I was scared the whole time.
SNeAky said I should talk to DadDY.
I am scared DaDdY will be not proud anymore if I say how scared I am.

2023.03.26 14:17 2612posty I found the Mf’ing starboy

So there were no signs of any gold stars since I made my final post explaining how creeped out I was.
Yesterday I found some of the kids in my apartment playing and I asked them in a chill playful manner, “so which one of you has been putting those stickers on my car” and they all screamed my neighbors sons name 😂
He’s a little kid, hardly 6 I guess, and I wasn’t surprised since me and my neighbor often talk about muscle cars and he tells me how his sons like my car.
However the kid left for a holiday apparently on day 4 (when I made a post with stars on my front window) and thus it surely wasn’t him who put star stickers on my trunk when I was out. I’ve made my peace believing that it was probably a redditor who happened to spot the car at the right time in the right moment and went on with the stickers 😭😂 which I don’t really mind since it’s harmless and goofy at the end of the day but I would appreciate y’all telling me about it later just so I don’t feel paranoid over having attracted a Reddit stalker… I was genuinely freaked out when I saw stickers on my trunk while I was out and I even took a break from this app cuz the idea of having a stalker and feeling watched is pretty creepy 😭
Overall I feel relieved knowing that it was my neighbors son doing it every morning, I’ve decided to take them all on a ride and get em ice cream when he’s back lol, andddd about the redditor who did it while I was in amwaj islands Mc D, I would appreciate it if you came out too and we could laugh over this and appreciate how u executed this in such a short time span 😭

2023.03.26 14:06 -PepeArown- It was my birthday yesterday, so I decided to listen to all of her music to celebrate.

I know what you’re probably all thinking. That’s it?
I mean, no doubt my birthday this year was a little underwhelming. I spent most of it studying and doing laundry.
But, I made specific plans today to listen to all of Ella’s music. Recently, I’ve fallen hard for her… unfortunately. I realized I like her and her music way more than I once thought I did. Yes, I have a crush on her, but I think it’s more of a personality thing. I don’t know.
I was a little nervous, though. It’s gotten so bad to where I feel like I need to be mentally prepared to listen to her music. I was procrastinating listening to her for like an hour and a half yesterday. I went ahead and goofed off listening to songs by other artists, going on a long phone call with my mother, etc. It’s weird. I’ll gladly press play on bad or mediocre songs, but, for Ella, it’s the exact opposite. I seem to like her songs so much that listening to her can be a very nerve racking act.
The first song I pressed play on was Dominoes, and it was that way because it’s technically my least favorite song from her, and I wanted to listen in order of my least favorite to favorite. But, even having the courage to press play on Dominoes was rough for me.
But, eventually, I did it. I spent the rest of my 19th birthday… alone. Initially, I listened to her in the comforts of my dark dorm room, with all of my lights turned off. My roommate thankfully left to go see their friend until midnight.
Honestly, even that was so… therapeutic, to me. I relistened to some songs I didn’t remember liking as much like The Man With The Axe, and it just felt like a whole new experience. So, I made my bed while listening to a couple of her songs, just kind of staying there in my room while listening to a couple more of her songs, and then decided to finish up my playlist on a walk around my campus.
It was about 10:00 PM at this time. It was about 50°F that night, but it was quite windy. But, it was partly cloudy, so I saw most of the stars and the moon just fine.
Listening to Ella while walking around at night truly was an experience. Barely anyone roaming around my campus besides myself to judge or bother me. Heavy gusts of wind and leaves flying through the air to add to me totally getting lost in Ella’s music. The stars, too. My campus even has little “emergency help” poles marked off with… green lights. I need to calm down.
Yes, I even loved listening to Solar Power in this environment, as contrarian as it may seem. The quality of most of Jack’s production on the album is… debatable, but Ella’s just such a strong and beautiful vocalist on so many of the songs. I had to take a step back when Mood Ring queued up. I love that song’s intro so much. Beautiful!
There were so many unique connections with her songs that night. I almost felt like crying when Buzzcut Season came on, and I feel like that would’ve never happened in the past. And, I happened to be walking into one of the darkest parts of my campus (around our soccer field) when I was listening to Supercut. That really helped me soak in that outro. It’s surprisingly deep for just being one repeated sentence.
I’d get too wordy if I listed them all, though. Ribs and A World Alone hit extra hard, though. I guess I don’t have any strong, meaningful friendships, even if I do technically have some with my classmates now. I don’t want to call myself friendless, but I definitely feel disconnected from everyone a lot of the time. And, the fact that a lot of AWA seems to emphasize friendships being made only for advancement of self interest, and lack of accountability for friends that might betray you. Oh well. I’m nowhere near close to knowing her personally, but at least I have Ella and her music.
Funnily enough, I also got chest pains/cramps right around when Ribs came on. I guess I was just walking long enough. But, I persisted.
I don’t really want to share my insights while listening to Liability, though. I think they’re valid, but they might steer a little off course from what the lyrics are truly about. And, besides, I think it may be a bit too personal for others to understand.
I ended off the night with my three ultimate favorite songs by her. I won’t bother saying what they are if you’re all just going to call me weird or basic for my picks, so I won’t. But, my favorite song by her? Oh my goodness. It doesn’t even sound like a song made for you to cry, but I almost did when it came on.
I walked back to my dorm just about 2 minutes before midnight. I was basically thrilled inside, even if a lot of my listening session was “depressing”. I’m so much more grateful for Ella’s music than I ever have been. Some of you may not be able to understand it, but this was probably one of the best birthday presents I could give to myself, at least in my current mental form.
People have told me that Ella’s music isn’t really that “girly”, but I definitely feel like it has this special “cute” feminine quality that music made by men just can’t compare to at all. I don’t know. Maybe I’m causing too much trouble for myself by even beginning to explain it. But, that’s a huge reason why I find myself adoring it so much.
This was a long post, but, when most of my 19th birthday was basically a nothing day before this, I hope you all understand why I valued this so much. Again, I am essentially friendless beyond the point of some mostly superficial connections. But, at least I have music like Ella’s to guide me.
I woke up this morning, and my mind is overwhelmed with thoughts of her music and lyrics. It’s definitely very hard hitting, indeed. Not sure if I want to stop these thoughts, or just let myself keep thinking of them.

2023.03.26 13:52 AutoModerator How to Watch Plane Online Free for reddit

American Action Movie! Here’s options for downloading or watching Plane streaming the full movie online for free on 123movies & Reddit,1movies, 9movies, and yes movies, including where to watch the science fiction at home. Is Plane 2023 available to stream? Is watching Plane on Disney Plus, HBO Max, Netflix, or Amazon Prime? Yes, we have found an authentic streaming option / service.
Watch Here>>Plane (2023) Full Movie Free Online
January is the time for campy horror movies (see: “M3GAN”), extremely late-coming Oscar contenders (International Feature hopefuls “Saint Omer” and “Close”), and of course, ridiculous action thrillers, preferably starring Gerard Butler.

As its title suggests, the story of “Plane” begins on an airplane, piloted by Brodie Torrance (Butler), which is carrying Louis Gaspare (“Evil” star Mike Colter), a man being extradited on charges of homicide. After the plane gets heavily damaged by a freak storm, Brodie is forced to crash-land in Jolo, an island in the Philippines overrun by anti-government militias. When one of the militias, led by the short-tempered Dele (Yoson An), takes the majority of the crew and passengers hostage, Brodie is forced to free Louis and team up with him in order to save everyone and escape the island.

2023.03.26 13:40 Tornado31619 Why can’t WrestleMania weekend appearances be reserved for those who actually deserve them? You should have to earn your spot.

There’s no denying that it’s primarily a showcase for WWE, but that’s in part what you have your legends and celebrities for (and their contributions are their star power). And in any case, the Bloodline, Cody Rhodes, Sami Zayn, Kevin Owens, the Judgement Day, Austin Theory, Edge, John Cena, Becky Lynch, Lita, Trish Stratus, Charlotte Flair, Asuka, Bianca Belair, Gunther, Damage CTRL, Sheamus, Drew McIntyre, Brock Lesnar, Omos and Rey Mysterio are all accounted for. That’s a star-studded lineup.
Between them, there are eleven matches, plus possible appearances for LA Knight and Bobby Lashley, which for the latter could still be a match with Bray Wyatt. And then you never know who else will make appearances.
My question is, after some really well-paced PLEs since I began watching again at Clash at the Castle, why are we over bloating the biggest show of the year with a bunch of jobbers and lower-midcarders? It’s mind-boggling to me that Extreme Rules only had six matches, and yet it’s easier for the Viking Raiders to appear at ‘Mania than on one of those cards.
Don’t get me wrong, I like Alpha Academy and Strowman/Ricochet. I was posting about how Liv and Raquel should be on the card as well a few weeks ago. But this is the most thinly-veiled attempt at getting them on the card that I’ve seen. Bayley has missed out before, KO has missed out before, but god forbid Shotzi misses out this time. And the worst part is that there’s no indication that there’ll be any ramifications for the tag champs. Obviously the Usos or Sami and KO working night two as well would be dumb, but they could easily have had an angle of Ronda and Shayna calling Becky and Lita out for them. I know Triple H is keen on tag team wrestling, but all he’s doing is exposing the clear gap between the Bloodline/Judgement Day and everybody else. Heck, the night one main event can be the tag showcase he wants.
And guess what, they’re still having the battle royal on SmackDown! Take a look at this lineup, and tell me who exactly we’d be missing. Knight and Lashley (and Lashley was already booked). That’s it. Gargano’s already working Stand & Deliver, and Legado may interfere in Rey v Dom. Remind me again, how is this connected to André the Giant? Hogan did a good job hyping it up the first time around, but now it’s just a relegation for the wrestlers involved because winning it has benefited no one besides Corbin and possibly Cesaro in the long run.
TL;DR: make WrestleMania appearances mean something again. There were reports of talent unhappiness over potentially missing out this year. To me, that sounds like a perfect incentive to begin working harder so that they make next year’s card, even for the likes of Liv who arguably did deserve a spot this year.

2023.03.26 13:38 kcr141 As If On Q: part 1

  Alright, so I got this idea from a response by u/Nightelfbane to this post. I realized that yeah, a Q from Star Trek could defeat the federation thoroughly and instantly if they wanted to. But then I though, is that what they would actually do? And then the more I thought about it, the more interesting this idea seemed to me.
So without further ado, here is the first chapter of this train wreck of a fanfic: Q vs. the NOP federation
Memory transcript subject: Tal, Venlil Space Corps
Date [standardized human time]: December 6, 2136
I had been separated from my exchange partner. I hoped he had managed to escape with the rest of the evacuation, but either way, I had been left behind on Sillis. I was alone, and on the run.
That was when I came across the extermination officer. He seemed to be lying on the ground unconscious, and I could tell the venlil was an extermination officer from his uniform. I also took note of his rainbow socks which reminded me that some of Venlil Prime’s extermination offices were becoming accepting of humans. Still, the question remained. What was this officer doing here?
Suddenly, his eyes opened. The extermination officer quickly shot to his feet and looked straight at me.
“Holy shit! Look at you!” he shouted.
The venlil appeared to study his own arms and paws.
“Look at us! We’re so fluffy!” he said before reaching out and ruffling the fur on the top of my head.
The man was practically jumping with joy, and I had no idea how to respond.
“I didn’t expect to find anything, maybe some hydrogen gas if I was lucky, but this!” he said.
The extermination officer looked up and around for a few moments.
“And I don’t think they’re going to find us here,” he said.
The officer returned his gaze to me, baring his teeth. For a moment, I was startled. Was he trying to imitate the way humans smile?
Whatever he was doing, his “smile” faded when he saw my apprehension. The officer looked around, seeming to become aware for the first time of the devastation that surrounded us.
“Could you, by any chance, tell me what I’m wearing right now?” he asked.
The question left me even more confused than I was a moment ago. Nonetheless, I replied.
“You’re wearing the uniform of a chief extermination officer. Who are you?”
The man didn’t answer my question. Instead, he burst into an almost manic laughter.
Did this extermination officer have predator disease?
As he laughed, an antimatter warhead detonated off in the distance.
Extermination officer!? Wow, Okay! Holy fuck! So you guys aren’t quite as cuddly as you seem. Alright, I get it.”
Another bomb detonated, this one much closer than the last.
I still had no idea what the man was talking about, but he was starting to make me nervous. He seemed to go back to studying his paws, and I was about to ask again who he was, when suddenly, he lifted his right paw up next to his head. In a motion that looked rather painful, the extermination officer pressed his claws together and flicked them past each other producing a piercing
And then everything went white.

2023.03.26 13:29 FoxMoldr Can you give me some ideas for a second play through?

I beat the game with an STR build - Rusty Anchor into Great Stars. Jump attacking and staggering my way through. It was fun. And I intentionally left a lot of side content unexplored the a second playthrough. I didn't do Volcano Manor, the Depths, Haligtree, the belphries. Consecrated Snowfield, underground Leyndell etc. I killed a ton of dungeon bosses but hardly any field bosses. I wanted to save all of that for a second time so I had new and fresh things to discover.
Problem is I just can't get excited about a build. But maybe I'm not looking deep enough. I tried an INT sorcery build and a pure FTH build but magic is honestly not for me.
One thing I'd really like is to play with a setup that doesn't rely on jump attacks and staggering bosses over and over. I've thought about Reduvia with a shield but that seems like it would be more frustrating than fun. Ideally I'd like to run a build that allows me to fight bosses and really learn their movesets and conquer them rather than looking for openings to stop them from attacking. Love the Great Stars run I did but there were quite a few bosses I just pounded into the dirt on my first try and it felt kind of unsatisfying because I didn't really learn how to fight them first.
I looked up builds on fextralife but so much of that stuff feels clinical to read. So I'm hoping that some of you guys might be able to lend me some inspiration. Sorry for the long post.

Any ideas what this might be in the sky?
Hello, I have been looking for a discussion group to post a picture that I took at Knowlton Church and Earthworks in Dorset, UK, (a 12th century Norman Church situated at the centre of a Neolithic ritual henge earthwork), on the evening of Saturday 4th February 2023, during a field trip group meditation of around 100 likeminded souls. The intention of the group meditation was to connect with 'Star Family.' It was a low cloud overcast evening and the stars were not visible, so it was assumed seeing any 'sky activity' would not happen that night. The picture I took (included in this post) was one taken of one of the meditation leaders. It was only when I got home that I noticed a light in the shot frame in the background in the sky below the cloud cover. I have also included 2 'zoom in screen grabs.' I have to be honest and say I did not see it with my own eyes at the time, as I was focussed on the people in front of me and not looking up in the sky to the right, so I hope I am not breaching posting guidelines here. There was no noise of any kind, (the whole group was silent as well), and there was no sound of anything that could be recognised as a conventional aircraft. I am not overly familiar with reddit - so hope I have landed (no pun) in an appropriate place to get some feedback of peoples thoughts? Anyone any idea what that might be? (It is not anything on the phone camera [Samsung S22 Ultra] lens as pictures were taken directly before and after this one in question and it was not there...)
Original unedited photo. Light in the sky right of centre a third down.
First zoom in.
