2023.06.10 20:20 blurryturtle 2023 Roland Garros Men's Finals 🐢
As usual, before a big final, I like to get a little behind the scenes insight. Last time, I got up close and personal with the players, but as a result, a restraining order was issued, so this time, I leveled up and installed some cameras in their hotel rooms. This will give us a first-hand look at their prep for the finals.
Casp-o-vision : Sunday, June 11th. The clock strikes 6:00AM. Norwegian music begins playing. Casper’s eyes open. “Ahhh Kongesangan,” thinks Casper, “the only choice for brushing one’s teeth”. Casper begins brushing. He is already in the bathroom, where he sleeps standing up to maximize efficiency. He brushes the right side efficiently, and does the best he can on the other. Though these teeth are mainly defensive, they are constantly improving. Casper turns to his coaches, who are sitting in the tub watching him brush. They nod and make fists, the only coaching he has ever received from them. He nods and makes a fist as well. The main coach, whose name he has never learned, hands him a plate of Fårikål, and he begins eating. “Shouldn’t I have eaten this before I brushed my teeth?” he asks, but perhaps the storyteller, like Casper’s team, did not think this through. Still though, Google is very informative. “Boy, I sure do love Oslo,” muses Casper. “And fjords.” Wow, Casper is ready for Roland Garros.
Djokocam : Sunday June 11th. The clock strikes 6:00AM. Norwegian music begins playing. “Perhaps we should not have been roommates” thinks Novak, as he looks across the room to Casper’s bed. But Casper is not there. Djokovic stretches his impervious to cramps body. He is not in a bed, but gently relaxing on a bed of moss, which grew when he summoned it with warrior one. He eases slowly into chair pose, and a chair appears. Goran quickly sits in it. “Look at my cool new shades!” says Goran. “Very nice, Goran,” says Novak, as he closes his eyes to begin meditating. “You think we can win, Novak?” asks Goran, while swinging his legs excitedly in the chair. “Yes, Goran,” answers Novak. “Can you believe they eat snails here?” asks Goran, while pretending his hand is an airplane. “Yes, Goran,” answers Novak. “Would you ever eat a snail?” asks Goran, while pretending he is an airplane. “Yes, Goran,” answers Novak. “Wow,” says Goran. His friend Novak is so cool.
Casper emerges from the bathroom, and Djokovic heads in. There are crumbs in the sink, and Ruud’s team shake their fists and nod at him as he begins combing his hair. Novak shakes his head. He is ready for Roland Garros.
Men’s Singles Final : There is something about Casper Ruud’s game that makes it seem like he is not doing anything special. He is ultra-consistent, and he makes the right choices in almost every situation, but his disciplined approach can make a player like Zverev or Rublev seem like they are on another level. Ruud has made two Grand Slam finals already (both last season), but was summarily written off before they began, suffering defeat at the hands of Carlos Alcaraz at the US Open, and Rafael Nadal at Roland Garros. Here again, he is being given very slim chances by most people. When you do everything right (by the book), there is a sense that you become predictable, and the greats of the game have excellent situational awareness. If they can move early to your shots, you’re not going to get many errors from them. It makes this a very uphill battle for him, because Novak Djokovic is a player that is unlikely to be rattled by the classic patterns and approaches to the game, and is one of the most consistent players the tour has ever seen. Once he gets in a rhythm, you’re playing a tennis game set to expert, so Casper will need to elevate his aggression here.
Ruud will thankfully be fresh for the finals, but after watching the Alcaraz demise it’s hard to gauge how long that will last. Him being a bit older does give him a bit more stamina and experience, and he had a fairly quick match against Zverev. He’s also done this before, so I think physically he is ready to go 5 sets. Thinking, though, isn’t it always the cause of our blunders. Zverev looked competitive in parts of their match, but he is not at the top level of the game yet. His ceiling is, but where does his ceiling lurk? Ruud is nearly robotic out there. You know he is going to execute and move the ball well and his defensive skills are solid enough to make his opponent play several shots to win a point. It’s the discipline he has that allows him to do this regardless of the stage and the opponent. Zverev, on the other hand, is very much thinking out there. When he has a setup, it’s very up in the air what he should do. He’s often creating angles and situations that he is only going to play 1-2 of per match, and it leads to errors as he second-guesses and hesitates on shots (especially rough in choosing when and when not to come to net). In truth, he could have wound up deep in the match against Casper, but when Zverev had control or time, he made a lot of unforced errors trying to crack Ruud’s defenses. Despite having a ton of experience on tour, Zverev has not really ironed out his game and since returning from injury, he hasn’t really dealt with a match where he had to play hard every point in order to win. The ability is there, but the repetition of effort is not.
Speaking of repetition of effort, it should be noted what a great adjustment Djokovic made in his semifinal match. He is very frequently a slow starter on clay, but he came out and looked to match Alcaraz’s aggression from the start. It was a very “I’m not going to miss and I want you to know that” approach, and digging in in this manner started to forced Alcaraz to come up with more and more ambitious attempts. They both have a lot of heat on their shots, but Alcaraz is certainly the one swinging harder on the average ball. He started to make errors, but it looked to me like he would wear down Djokovic’s defenses with the onslaught. There have been a number of matches this tournament where the first couple games were furiously played, and eventually one player settled into their role as a defender, or folded up and forced offense until they lost. This didn’t feel like the case here, as both of these players can legitimately expect to hit a high percentage of their shots no matter what style they proceed with. A good example is how a post-cramp, immobile and defeated Alcaraz was able to guide winners off Djokovic’s serve. Not a strategy to win the match, but something that he rarely uses in match-play yet was instantly able to do.
After losing the first set, I still like Alcaraz’s chances. It had become the best type of ATP match, one where the player who is serving doesn’t just automatically win. The great big 3 matchups featured so many breaks and yet those breaks weren’t huge cracks or fails at all, it was just that at the highest level, players can play defense and offense from everywhere on the court. They exchanged breaks late in the 2nd set, and it seemed like Alcaraz’s aggression was finally mentally wearing Djokovic down. Early in the third though, disaster struck in the way that it always seems to when a phenom plays Djokovic at a major. Carlos Alcaraz cramped. Spectacularly. His hand cramped, his calf cramped, and he looked like Medusa slid in his DMs for a moment. Big credit to Djokovic for being bigger than the moment, and coming across the net to express concern and help Alcaraz to his chair. Cramping is something that affects a lot of players on tour, but it was pretty unexpected from Alcaraz. His physical strength is off the charts, and he trains extremely hard. If some combination of nerves and over-exertion really caused this, then it’s a by-product of Djokovic being willing to go toe-to-toe with him right from the start of the match.
There are great nutritionists working on the tour, but once you actually go full-cramp, it is nearly impossible to continue playing tennis. The muscle is in pain, and doesn’t want to fully flex even if you do. In short, you’re fatigued, in pain, and weak. Alcaraz forfeited the game so he could get treatment, but with 2 full sets left against the guy who is leading the GOAT debate currently (and competing against off-tour opponents), you’re pretty much finished. Brave of Alcaraz to finish out the match, and I had some hope that the kid would go full-tank and hydrate to recover for a 4th, but it appeared the damage was irreversible. He stood in on some returns, and while this means that any poor returns leave your court position too shallow to cover both wings of the court, he did show a pretty good ability to utilize this tactic. I’d love to see him do more of this in the future, as the best returners are pretty much hugging the baseline and you need this to win with minimized effort on hardcourt and grass. I’d also add, his deep return position was allowing Djokovic to serve and volley an awful lot, and Novak really was the one scoring off the dropshot in the non-cramp sets so Alcaraz will need to work on some other strategies. A good restful win for Djokovic, and a new wrinkle to the “how high will Alcaraz rise” debate. I don’t think too many people were really expecting cramps (to my knowledge it’s the first time he’s dealt with that on tour), and he had the momentum before they occurred.
One of the best things about majors is how long the players are out there. It allows for so many deviations in strategy and planning. Dumping sets to conserve energy, planning to sprint early then take a set off, and changes in strategy (holding back a bit of pace on serves early or playing frequent dropshots to take your opponents legs) can be really effective. Djokovic got the benefit of an interesting result here. It seemed like his defense was good enough to keep Alcaraz at bay but he wasn’t able to counter-punch. If this was by design, kudos to him and his team for allowing Alcaraz to punch himself out. If it wasn’t, it has at a minimum inspired other players to dig in on defense against Carlos now that they’ve seen the gas tank actually on E, which is tremendous for the tour since we’ve seen a few top guys fold against him already. The names on the trophies are less important than creating an environment where these guys can compete at their freest, because the sport won’t continue to grow unless the product is visibly enticing to the non-tennis public.
Djokovic Ruud should be a great match, the same way Swiatek Muchova was today. Ruud has yet to win a set against Djokovic in his career, but almost every single set has been confined to a single break of serve. That’s largely what I expect here. Ruud is good enough to compete with Djokovic for 75% of the match. Similar to the CA/ND situation that caused the cramps, Ruud is good enough to play Djokovic on even terms, but not really able to get out of trouble once he’s in it. Since Djokovic’s measured approach won’t wear himself out like Alcaraz’s did, this means a long match, with a vaguely assured result. This is good for Ruud for a few reasons. One, he won’t be distracted very often. When you’re going uphill but are a great competitor like Ruud, you don’t get caught up in the “what ifs” of an L or fret changes in the scoreline, you just keep an eye on how you’re doing out there. Trying different approaches, working on the spots you’re losing ground in, and communicating with your box constructively rather than complaining are useful, and keep you in the present moment. That’s a good place to stay for Casper here, because the crowd is very likely to get behind him. Djokovic is a beloved champion, but fans want to see a long match. If Ruud was considered an even contender here, he could almost enter villain territory, as fans would not want to see a great champion dethroned. Since he’s publicly regarded as a plucky underdog, he’ll have plenty of support.
Tennis-wise, the problem here is simple. Djokovic has the best backhand in tennis, and Ruud fights his off. He can create some great angles with it, and hits passes fairly well, but it’s a safe target for Djokovic which means the majority of shots are going to go there. We all saw how devastating a weapon the dropshot and forehand inside-in became for Alcaraz when Tsitsipas attempted to camp in his backhand corner, and I fear that Ruud will have similar issues in this match. This is doubly tricky because Djokovic’s backhand dropshots are much better and much more frequently attempted down the line. Ruud served well against Zverev, but he went out wide from the duece court a lot and Zverev never really punished him for it. Djokovic ropes these shots cross-court very well and he’s good at picking a few spots to up the aggression. If Casper is forced to abandon this serve, it’s a problem because it’s generally the best way to ensure that his second shot is a forehand. He plays well behind the pattern, but great returners (and great teams hello Goran) are likely to notice any significant lean on a particular serve. The odds at -450 indicate that Ruud will be competitive (because basically everyone watching is looking to bet on Djokovic at this point), but this would be the most surprising result that has occurred in tennis in a very long time. I think Ruud wins the same set via steady play and heavy hitting that Khachanov did, but it’s hard to see Djokovic struggling with patterns and opponents that he has already figured out. Djokovic in 4.

2023.06.10 20:18 Mewtwosneckloop Can norovirus cause a long-time flareup? Anyone have gastroparesis? Vocal cord damage??
Okay long post, but apparently nausea can be a part of IBS, and also caused by anxiety. The doctors here in Finland refuse to give me any anti-nausea meds or even examine me in any way because they say it's just normal anxiety and reflux nausea. The only OTC med is Postafen for car sickness and it does not work. Lately, for the past ~5 MONTHS, I have had debilitating nausea on and off nearly every day. I have lost around 5+ kg (10ish pounds or more) though it's hard to tell exactly how much with how my weight naturally fluctuates. In any case, I have lost weight simply because I have not been able to eat much anything for the past 3 months or so.
Sometimes there are better days or even a week where the nausea is minimal and I can eat normally and sleep in my own bed again, but the room is too cramped to hold a bucket in case I throw up at night, so I have lived on the couch for most of this time. I have not thrown up even once, but the fear of throwing up on my bed and everything around it is too bad for me and also the toilet is closer to the living room.
Thing is, I had a stomach flu (likely noro, got it from a family member) in late March. Ever since, I have felt worse than I usually do. I am always physically somehow unable to throw up even though I have chronic reflux and daily regurgitation. I was just in pain and had bad shits during the week of stomach flu.
The nausea and heartburn have gotten worse by tenfold this past week and I suspect I might have gastroparesis on top of reflux and IBS. Stomach valve malfunctions run in the family. The doctors here however just tell me to take Somac (pantopratzole, doesn't help me even on the long run) and straight up REFUSE to examine me in any way or give me a referral to a much needed gastroscopy because I am "young and healthy" (21) and "haven't thrown up". I can't afford a private doctor, even a gastroscopy or ultrasound is 300-400 euros (about the same in USD with current rates) and I have less than that to my name for the entire month after bills etc. Public healthcare stuff is pretty much free with a citizenship health insurance but they jusy don't care about people before it's too late.
I take Rennie and Somac daily (Rennie when needed, Somac before bed) for my heartburn, but these past few days it has been so bad that it has made me cough and almost lose my voice several times. I'm going to try to call the doctors on Monday again and insist on a referral to a gastroscopy, I have had reflux for years and it's about time they check what's going on with my esophageal lining. If they even listen to me.
Anyone have any input? I am desperate at this point. I do voice work and hope to turn it into a job at some point, and the potential of reflux-caused vocal cord damage scares me.

2023.06.10 20:18 MissEndive Messed up when clipping dogs nails
| || |
Hello everybody! I've been clipping my dogs and my aunts dogs nails for a while now. Through my dogs don't really have an issue with their paws being touched my Aunts dog does. I was making alot of headway with him when I accidentally cut further than I meant to. I wasn't paying attention to the signs so when he jolted I nipped him a bit and he bleed. submitted by MissEndive to DogAdvice [link] [comments]
I honestly have never felt like a worse person.
Thankfully it wasn't bad and the bleeding stopped almost instantly but since then even though I can hold his paws he won't let me anywhere near him with the nail clippers.
I wanted to know if there is anything I can do to get him okay with having his nails clipped again.
Last time I tried he moved away as soon as he saw the clippers and sat in his kennel. I left him alone after that.
Thank y'all in advance for any feedback given.

I was always a fool who thought
That my loved ones would not die before me
But in the end i couldn't do a thing.
I was always joking and laughing and i liked teasing people.
Even when we were watching movies I was foolishly giggleing.
I even said that i don't want a birthday present
And i thought the best thing was if you were to surprise me.
I was grinning because it was so much fun.
While you are waiting at the street lights by a sidewalk near to our house the street lights are illuminating you.
The two of us were bound by a red thread
Laughing we said that it was fate.
You, who was bound with a red thread, Should not have been here.
A man in a uniform was knocking on the door.
Saying I don't know anything i chased him away.
You were hidden in the bath tub and pushed your tongue out which was starting to detach.
I was the one who sewed your arm back on when it was ripped off
and I tied the ends of the red thread into a bow.
Your heart may have stoppen beating
But i am certain that you are alive.
When you get hungry you're eating me
Even though I am definitely lacking taste.
The two of us are swathed by a red thread
And can't break free.
Your Tongue is sliding along my neck
Ah it's good to get eaten by a loved one.
Your heart won't ever be beating again
But we swore eternal love even though
The beer that we said cheers with all spilled from your stomach.
Well, we only died
And i think i realized one thing.
Right now i might be even happier than when I was alive.
It's good that i became a zombie.
My body and heart are in total bliss
Reality and such are an impossible game.
Come out, thing that was created.
Let's sew back in our organs that are falling out with a red thread.
Let's be together like that and rot away.
While we are happy were always together Even though you are rotting i love you.

2023.06.10 20:17 jimbobbypaul Ranking the Top 131 FBS Programs of the Last 40 Years: 76. Hawaii
Main hub thread with the full 131 rankings
Hawai’i nei. When I think of Hawaii football, I think of a rich state-wide sporting culture that manifests as 11 warriors flying around the football field. Hawaii’s had an up and down, but very proud, football history. Going 0-12 in 1998 to subsequent 9-4 and 3-9 records the following years might be a perfect microcosm of Rainbow Warrior football. For me, and I’m sure for a lot of other fans, the Colt Brennan Hawaii teams in ‘06 and ‘07 were some of the funnest teams to ever watch, and I look forward to watching games in the new Aloha Stadium once complete.

- 244-253-6 record
- 4 conference titles
- 8-6 bowl record
- 0 consensus All-Americans
- 48 NFL players drafted
Hawaii’s 0 consensus All-Americans is surprising given the talent of some players that’ve come through the Aloha state. WR Greg Salas led the nation in receiving yards in 2010, catching 119 passes for 1889 yards and 14 TD, but still couldn’t get everyone to say “this guy’s an All-American.” Neither could WR Ashley Lelie, who was 2nd in 2001 with 1713 yards, and led the nation with 19 TD. Not to mention Colt Brennan and some of the other skill position players from those 2006/07 teams. Players aside, Hawaii’s had a healthy rate of winning seasons (20 seasons of .500 win % or better), conference titles (1 every 10 years), players drafted (over 1 a year), and has a winning bowl record, including a 6-4 record in Hawaii Bowls.
Top 5 Seasons Worst Season: 1998 (0-12 overall, 0-8 WAC)
Hawaii STUNK. Coach Fred von Appen finished his 3 year tenure as head coach with a 5-31 record, with 1998 being Hawaii’s only ever winless season. #24 Arizona, whose coaching staff featured Hawaii coaching expats Dick Tomey, Rich Ellerson, and Bob Wagner, beat the Warriors 27-6 in the opener. It set the tone for the season, as Hawaii went winless while Arizona finished 12-1. After a loss to Utah, 0-20 and 0-28 losses to Arkansas State and SMU put them at 0-4. The closest score the rest of the season season was just 10 points in a 20-30 loss to New Mexico. Worst losses included 13-30 to 3-8 UTEP, 17-45 to 4-8 San Jose State, 12-51 to 5-6 Fresno State, and 21-47 to 3-9 Northwestern. Overall, Hawaii ranked dead last in offense with 12.4 PPG while giving up 35.2 PPG against the 79th ranked Strength of Schedule. In 1999 new head coach June Jones would complete the biggest turnaround in NCAA history, winning 9 games.
This ranks as the 5th worst season ever, by any team, since 1983. 5. 1988 (9-3 overall, 5-3 WAC)
Now let’s take it back 10 years in the past, from 1998 → 1988. Hawaii was a better football team back then. 2x Super Bowl champion kicker Jason Elam, just a freshman at the time, nailed 47 and 23 yard FGs in the 4th quarter in a 27-24 upset of #9 Iowa. A week 6 matchup between 4-0 Hawaii and 4-1 UTEP would determine who’d be Wyoming’s biggest challenger for the WAC title, but UTEP won 42-25. Andy Reid was an OL coach for the Miners at the time. Hawaii did their best to keep pace in the conference, going 7-2 with close wins over San Diego State and the now defunct Long Beach State 49ers. A loss to #16 Wyoming ended any shot at a WAC title, but wins over Air Force and Oregon to end the year were sweet, with Hawaii finishing the year 2-0 against Power 5/6 teams (Iowa and Oregon). QB Warren Jones was one of the best players in the WAC, leading the conference in passer efficiency, throwing 2000+ yards with 19 TD 11 INT, and adding another 669 and 8 TD on the ground. 4. 2001 (9-3 overall, 5-3 WAC)
The 2001 senior class had had enough. From 0-12 in 1998 to 9-4 then 3-9, what the heck did 2001 have in store? Nobody knew. The season opener against FCS team Montana was anyone’s bet, as the Grizzlies were #2 in the FCS rankings. Hawaii won 30-12, but 2 straight one-possession losses had them fall to 1-2. That’s when QB Nick Rolovich and the offense took flight. 3 straight wins including a 66-7 pummeling of UTEP improved Hawaii to 4-2. Hosting David Carr and #18 Fresno State in a packed Aloha Stadium of 38,000, Rolovich threw a 20 yard TD pass with 13 seconds left to win the Golden Screwdriver 38-34. Splitting their next 2 games, Hawaii was 6-3 with 3 of their toughest games left, and Rolovich WENT NUCLEAR. He outdueled Ben Roethlisberger and 7-3 Miami (OH), throwing 7 TD passes in a 52-51 win. That was followed up by a 5 TD performance against Air Force, winning 52-30. And the best was saved for last. Hosting 12-0, #9 BYU, Rolovich had the performance of a lifetime, throwing 8(!!!) TD passes in a 72-45 shocker, blowing the doors off the Cougars in a sold out 50,000 seat Aloha Stadium. Chad Owens had a kick return TD and punt return TD, and set an NCAA record for return yards in a single game with 342. WR Ashley Lelie had a monstrous 8 catches for 262 yards and 2 TD.
But despite the 9-3 record, Hawaii wasn’t invited to a bowl game, which spawned the creation of the Hawaii Bowl in 2002. Rolovich ended the year with 3361 passing yards 34 TD 9 INT, 3rd in the nation in passing TDs.In his last 3 games, Rolovich had 20 passing TD with just 1 INT, arguably the best 3 game stretch by a player in Hawaii history. Ashley Lelie had 84 catches for 1713 yards and 19 TD, and was the 19th overall pick by the Denver Broncos in the 2002 NFL Draft. Backup QB Timmy Chang would go on to become the NCAA’s all time leading passer with 17,072 yards by 2004. 3. 1992 (11-2 overall, 6-2 WAC)
This isn’t the usual Hawaii team you’re used to. They ran the option. They were 2nd in the nation in rushing. The starting RB ran for more yards than the entire team passed for combined. It makes sense when you notice their 6th year offensive coordinator was Paul Johnson, future Navy and Georgia Tech head coach. The season opener featured a 24-21 win against Oregon in Autzen Stadium, following up with a 6-3 win over an Air Force team that finished 1991 in the top 25, and finishing the opening 3-week stretch with a 36-32 win over BYU, who was coming off 3 straight years of top 25 finishes. After a minor setback against Utah, Hawaii reeled off 4 straight wins to improve to 7-1 and be ranked #24, before losing to San Diego State and Marshall Faulk. Thanks to a 42-18 win over Wyoming, Hawaii clinched a share of the WAC title, sharing it with Fresno State and BYU, both of whom Hawaii beat. The regular season finished with a nice 36-23 win over Pitt, and then 27-17 over Illinois in the bowl. Hawaii finished with an 11-2 record, #20 ranking, and 3-0 record against Power 6 (7?) teams. RB Travis Sims set a Hawaii single season record with 1498 rushing yards, on a WAC-best 6.8 YPC. 2. 2006 (11-3 overall, 7-1 WAC)
And here we have the teams everyone knows about. The June Jones/Colt Brennan “throw it every down because you can’t stop us” offenses that turned kids like me into college football fans. A 1-2 start featured understandable losses at Alabama and at Boise State, who finished 13-0. Hawaii won 10 of their last 11, including a win over 8-5 Nevada, a 54-17 win over 9-4 San Jose State, three 50+ point wins over Idaho, Utah State, and Louisiana Tech, a 42-35 win over Purdue, and finally a 41-24 win over Arizona State in the Hawaii Bowl. Those wins, along with losses to Alabama away, a 10 win Oregon State, and an unbeaten Boise State, earned a #22 final ranking in my algorithm. In some ways, this team was better than their 2007 version that went 12-0.
Hawaii led the nation in scoring with 46.9 PPG, with the next closest team averaging just 39.7 (Boise State). There was a bigger difference between Hawaii and 2nd place than 2nd place and 12th place! QB Colt Brennan set an NCAA record for passing efficiency in a season and passing TDs in a season, completing 72.6% of passes for 5549 yards 58 TD and just 12 INT. Brennan finished 6th in Heisman voting and won the Sammy Baugh Trophy and WAC Offensive POTY. RB Nate Ilaoa was a 5’9 245 lb do-it-all freak of nature, rushing for 990 yards and 13 TD on 7.6(!) YPC, and caught 67 passes for 837 yards and 5 TD. For a 245 lb RB, he accumulated 1827 yards and 18 TD on 9.2 yards per touch! WR Davone Bess led with 1220 receiving yards, Jason Rivers was second with 1178, and Ryan-Grice Mullen (2nd in Hawaii career receiving TDs) added 770. All three had 10+ receiving TDs.
Hawaii had 17 punts all season, setting an FBS record for the least amount of punts per game with just 1.2. There were 5 games in which they didn’t punt a single time! 1. 2007 (12-1 overall, 8-0 WAC)
In 2007, a perfect storm of returning talent + easy schedule combined to help Hawaii complete one of the most magical regular seasons we’ve seen from a team. Hawaii went 12-0, with some games being too close for comfort (45-44 OT win over Louisiana Tech, 42-35 OT over San Jose State, 28-26 over Nevada), but ultimately ending with big wins over #17 Boise State and Washington. #14 Hawaii and #17 Boise State played late in the year for the outright WAC title, with Hawaii coming out on top 39-27, outgaining Boise by 200+ yards with 5 passing TD from Brennan. #10 Hawaii played #4 Georgia in the Sugar Bowl, but the Bulldogs played like the best team in the nation that night, winning 41-10.
Brennan was invited to New York as a Heisman finalist, finishing 3rd. He completed 70.4% of passes for 4343 yards 38 TD 17 INT, and ran for 8 TD. Brennan finished his career as the NCAA’s all time leader in passing TDs with 131, doing so in just 3 years. Hawaii’s esteemed WR trio went off, with Ryan Grice-Mullen snagging 106 balls for 1372 yards and 13 TD, Davone Bess getting 108 catches for 1266 yards and 12 TD, and Jason Rivers catching 92 passes for 1174 yards and 13 TD. All 3 finished as Hawaii’s top 3 all-time leading receivers: Rivers with 3919 yards, Bess with 3610, and Grice-Mullen with 3370. June Jones was named WAC Coach of the Year and was a finalist for the Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year award.
2007 Hawaii nearly missed out on finishing as a top 50 Group of 5 team since 1983 according to my algorithm, but is an honorable mention.
Will we see the Braddahood return to 06/07 levels any time soon? What do you remember about Colt Brennan and those Hawaii teams? Where do you rank that 2007 Hawaii squad against all-time Group of 5 teams? They were dominant, but against the 11th weakest schedule in football that year. Do you think the ‘06 or ‘92 team was better than the ‘07 team? Who was the best Hawaii player outside of Brennan in the last 20-30 years? And finally, do you think Hawaii’s rank on this list is fair?

2023.06.10 20:16 SavingsSpare8104 Is there a difference between UV gel allergies and LED gel allergies? (Part 1)
| || | submitted by SavingsSpare8104 to u/SavingsSpare8104 [link] [comments]
UV gel allergies occur as a result of an allergic reaction to the chemicals used in UV-cured gel nail products. These products often comprise a blend of chemicals, such as monomers, oligomers, and photointiators, which are activated by UV energy in the UV light to harden and cure the gel.
What exactly is UV Energy?
The wavelength of UV light is measured in nanometers. Nanometers are used to measure light wavelengths and distances between atoms in molecules, and some photoinitiators in our UV gel products are matched with nanometers to'receive' best nail supply store near me
the energy, which initiates the curing process of our UV gel.
It's crucial to know that all "gel" nail treatments are UV-cured, so check the product label or consult with the manufacturer to determine the curing and application process.
It is critical to match the lamp that cures your gel with the gel that you use; doing so will ensure appropriate curing of your UV gel and will help prevent allergies. If the company selling you the goods cannot answer all of your questions before and after you buy it, it may be worth seeking for another provider.
How to Spot an Allergic Reaction
Allergic reactions to UV-cured gel allergens can range from mild discomfort to more severe symptoms such as redness, itching, swelling, or blisters. In rare circumstances, the reaction may be delayed and manifest several hours or days after the nail wholesale supply near me
initial gel exposure (some reactions can take years to show - an allergy can develop over time). Remove all product and take care to recover your nail units and skin with a decent oil and lotion if you observe any of these symptoms at any moment.
Wearing gloves during application and removal, good ventilation, avoiding skin contact with the gel as much as possible, and using only high-quality, reputable products that have been tested and certified for safety and leave all skin layers intact around the nail unit are all recommended precautions to prevent UV gel allergies in the salon or education center.
Repeated exposure to these (uncured or badly cured) compounds can further raise the likelihood of developing an allergy over time; however, be mindful that a 'acute reaction' is still possible, especially if you previously responded to another allergen.
Allergies and our skin
Our guardian seals protect us not only from viruses, but also from chemicals that may or may not be on our skin, and our skin is our own 'built-in' UV Radiation filter - removing any of your skin layers during a salon service may raise your risk of developing skin cancer.
We do not recommend self-patch nail and beauty supply near me
testing the product on a tiny area of skin; instead, leave it to the professionals, and avoid using a comparable UV treatment if any signs of irritation or allergy emerge until you know for certain which ingredient and or allergen caused the response in the first place. When you know what created the problem, it is much easier to discover a solution.
What should you do if you suspect a UV Gel allergy?
If you suspect you have a UV gel allergy, notify the brand nail supply store open to public
and company from which you purchased it, as well as seek medical attention for proper diagnosis and treatment before switching to another product. This will prevent any further allergic reactions and keep you and your clients safe in the salon.

2023.06.10 20:16 Azrael-Isabella I still see my attacker
This is a hard pill to swallow.
When I was eight, my granny's cousin came to visit. I have never met this guy before, I walked downstairs to make my brother and I cereal and he was there. My granny was upstairs on a call, mind you that I wore a cartoon nightgown. I chatted to him alot and I still blame myself for that, he started touching me, my breasts and my crotch and kissing my neck. He made me touch his shaft, I didn't know what was going on or what was happening. He told me: "I'm teaching you what your boyfriend is going to do to you." All I felt that day was fear, disgust and sadness, I froze up, too afraid to scream. He opened my legs and nearly entered inside me but my brother, at the time was six walked in. Frighteningly I told him to eat his cereal while I washed out all the evidence, (Big mistake) he threatened to kill me and quickly left. I ran upstairs and got dress crying, I sat on my granny's bed waiting patiently for her call to end. I remembered that Michael Knight was playing every Sunday morning on TV, when she was done. I told her everything, she cried called her friend back, called my mom and my mom rushed me to the police station. I spoke to the detectives and they tried to cheer me up but the minute I saw them arresting him I broke down and cried, the detectives put me in trauma unit and tried to calm me down while asking questions. I went to the hospital and they checked if I was broken into, but I washed all the evidence away.
Court took nine months, and therapy by court, I was in fourth grade at the time. My teacher felt sympathy for me. My classmates knew and in my community that is a scandalous thing, I was called ugly names by kids and girls told me it was my fault for opening my legs. I remembered my lawyers and even met a girl in court with a rape case who older than me (She was 12), we became friends, the lawyers didn't want to go into deep details afraid I was gonna cry like her but put me on camera while he was with a judge and my parents where there in my stead. The lawyers promised me nine years for him to go to jail for his crimes, I blamed that the judge and jury believed he's side of the story and gave him a warning and a restraining order.
Growing up, my granny told me not to tell the family, that she'll handle it. Nobody knew, I grew up thinking it was my fault. It's my fault I spoke to him, my granny said my beauty could attracted men into lust via Islam. (I'm christian who was a former muslim. A christian mom and a muslim dad) I dressed modestly and way too mature for my age, I avoided my stepfather and any men in my family. I blamed myself, I felt that no justice was done. I couldn't be around boys my age afraid they'll do the same, (In which the two case of molestation did happen on high school) every family function he was there and I would have to walk out of the house and cry while my brother comforted me.
My cousins started to notice a pattern, eventually I told them. My Granny was worried about face and her reputation with the family, it affected me badly. He acts like a true family oriented guy and so humble knowing he fucked up my life, breaking the court order.
I couldn't date, guys didn't want to be with a trauma messed up girl. I can't be intimate with a guy, I haven't gone to therapy because its looked down upon my community. In 2023, I saw him after the Eid in April when a family member died, my brother was fed up. He told me why didn't I told the court he was a witness, I told him that he was too young to understand and would cry if being questioned too much. I almost thought he did something to him (The guy) when burying the body in Islamic rights since women dont go to the graveyard, but luckily he left it.
Today I visited my granny's father's family. And he was there again, he's wife was there too. She always give me glares and dirty looks to say it was my fault. My granny comforted me, when serving food he served me a plate after I said continuously no thank you. I lost my apatite and was very uncomfortable, I told my cousin who hasn't seen me since the incident why I looked down but didn't go into detail.
I tried talking to my mom but it's always a hush hush topic because she's a rape survivor and she doesn't know how to handle my case if she had to endure silently. Rape and molestation is a victim fault situation since we have the biggest female genocide and rape in the world one year. I feel angry, sad and disgusted with myself. Some men will tell me wearing a night gown provoked him, but I was eight.
I slowly got over these feelings, by bottling them up. I am comfortable around guys my age but not with older men accept a few. I have a boyfriend of four years, and we worked together with this issue where I'm comfortable enough to be almost intimate with him but he will never do it unless I'm mentally and physically sure.
I dunno what to do. I know nothing is going to help, telling people will give me pity and people don't know how to treat me. I don't know if therapy is going to help since the few I met weren't patient enough even if I'm fully open with them and willing to work on myself. I want people to know I'm not that fragile, though he's in my face like a free man, live goes on. But seeing him unlocks the feelings on that day, I still remember, the date, day and time but I forgot his name. Then after a while I forget his face until I see him again.

2023.06.10 20:16 WithoutMyLemon Should I (33M) be fighting for this? Both my heart and mind says yes.
SUPER LONG READ WARNING
We met here, on Reddit, at the height of the pandemic. In May 2022, with COVID restrictions loosneing, I took a flight over the Atlantic to be with her (36F) to finally meet in person. Since then, we’ve met up on four more occasions - sometimes here in my country, sometimes back in hers - with the latest being last month (where I lucky enough to spend time with her on her birthday). Each visit, we had the absolute time of our lives.
As I imagine is the case in all LDRs, despite so, so many good times - online and in person - there were bad times too. In those bad times, I always felt that the vast majority of these times arose as a result of our previous relationships; we had both come out of long-term, unhealthy relationships at similar times and were both initiating divorce proceedings.
Mental abuse. Manipulation. Gaslighting. These were the kind of things that we both encountered from our now ex partners. These things had obviously left marks and even scars on both of us. But we were aware of this. We talked about this, frequently.
The nature of our relationship, predominantly taking place by text messages, but also countless audio and video calls, really helped us to focus on communication. What we didn’t have in physical contact, we made up for in talking openly and honestly, creating a safe space to talk about issues, thoughts and feelings. Good or bad. Positive or negative.
The romance was aplenty. We expressed our love for one another. Even during disagreements or misunderstandings, we made it clear that it didn’t change the love we had for one another. We talked about how much we missed each other when we had to spend time apart. How much we were desperate to be back together as soon as possible. We talked about the future, the ideas of what we wanted when we pulled the trigger on one of us making a permanent move to the other’s country.
Overall, things always looked so positive.
Until a week ago, I thought I knew what my future looked like. What our future looked like.
Only five days prior (Monday 29th May), I had returned home to the UK following our latest time together in person. Unfortunately, an incident occured towards the end of my trip when we were travelling together - after a long day of travel and exploring, I had begin to shut down, becoming quieter and more withdrawn.
This wasn’t new behaviour from me. I had done this before, from distance through text and audio calls, on numerous occasions. On this occasion, I put it down to a combination of tiredness and scars from my previous relationship - in the past, I often found myself holding back on expressing certain kind of feelings, as stupid as it looks on paper, as my ex-partner would often turn them around on me. “But why are you tired? You slept well. How on Earth could you be? What have you been doing to be that tired? Nothing.” I felt I had to have such a good justification to feel certain ways, especially relating to negative moods: feeling tired; melancholy; anxiety. Everything needed such a well thought out reason. Therefore I found it easier just to withhold this information. Just say “everything is fine” even when my tone or face said otherwise.
As touched upon earlier, me and my long distance partner had openly discussed how our past would make appearances throughout our relationship. When they did, we would work through them together. And we did just that. It may have taken time sometimes to open up, it may have been recurring itrational thoughts that caused a problem, but we got through things, made it clear we would support each other and confirmed our love remained strong.
I would never expect us to solve and conquer any given issues at the first time of trying, or that it would be easy, whichever of us were reliving their past - nonetheless, we did discuss this incident as the evening progressed. I expressed where I felt these feelings came from and apologised for my behaviour. I didn’t think this incident was simply dismissed, but given how we enjoyed the rest of the next and the remainder of this trip, given the way we discussed what happened with a positive conclusion, I felt we had dealt with the matter and moved on.
But as I said, this behaviour of mine had happened before - and it would happen again, once I returned home. Experiencing jet lag and missing my partner dearly, along with some additional factors I faced when arriving home, my mood declined in a similar way. I didn’t express myself to the woman I loved so much, preferring to put up a shield like I did in the past, not wanting her to worry. But when I finally convinced myself to try and address what was going on, my partner was left feeling unsure. More unsure than she ever had done before.
I wanted to give her time to collect her thoughts, thinking the same outcome was coming as it always had before. But I had rested way too long on my laurels. She came back a day later following contemplation time to say she wasn’t sure she wanted this anymore…
As somebody who has experiences issues of anxiety throughout my life, I was aware of how negative thoughts can spiral into irrationality. Clearer heads prevail. But as the days wore on, my confusion and worry grew as her uncertainty wasn’t already becoming clearer. It has never taken this long. With each passing day, the irrational thoughts appeared in my head. This is it. This is the end.
What about all those things we had said about our future over the years, only as long as a few days ago? There was never an inkling that things were on remotely shaky ground, because we always managed to talk and work things out. Nothing ever felt as if it was left unresolved.
I was caught so off guard. As we always had, I expressed these feelings to her. She wanted me to. But as I questioned whether this was really the end, questioned the truth of all those previous statements as a result of this sudden, new territory we were in , the answer came in the early hours of Thursday morning. “I think we shouldn’t continue with thi”.
Of course my issues were triggering, there’s absolutely no denying that and I fully take responsibility for my actions (and lack of). She explained that whilst she felt she had dealt with this behaviour of mine and moved forward, in reality, she realises she had been surpressing her feelings and how much my behaviour had been affected her.
But in telling me what she had benen wrestling with over those past few days, it felt to me that a number of these issues also stemmed from her previous relationship as well. In previous conversations, including those relating to this predicament, she would raise a number of worries: she thought I would find her a “boring buzzkill” because that’s what her ex would tell her; she was sometimes scared I’d get bored of her, like her ex did; she said that her ex would tell her she “always found a problem” in their relationship to complain about and thought I would eventually think the same; her ex would tell her she “ruined everything” and when an issue was once raised during a vacation, he blamed her for the bad mood and for “ruining the entire trip”.
My issues, the one that has arisen again, played a factor, but we were coming to the point where the next step was on the horizon. We had talked about me moving to be with her on a permanent basis, a move that seemed even more logical with my current employer potentially laying off employers in the near future. Even if that wasn’t the case, our next potential trip wouldn’t be possible until October at the earliest. The longest we’ve been apart since meeting up. Now seemed a better time than any to start looking into these plans.
We were both open about this future - and for years, expressed how we couldn’t wait until this day could finally come. We would never have the pain of being apart for long periods of time. One final countdown. Then we could crash, together, after work. Snuggle up close. Turn into couch potatoea together under a blanket. We could cook each other dinner. Cook each other breakfast. Head off to work together. We both really wanted this and expressed it regularly.
But she admitted that the sudden reality of this, now seemingly so close, further added to her mixed feelings. Understandable, I felt - what a big step this will be. But the worries of my behaviour occuring in person when we were together permanently was suddenly too strong to ignore. From what she explained, these kind of doubts formed the basis of her decision.
We talked. We cried. I didn’t want things to end but didn’t want to be unattractively desperate, grovelling for her to stay. We talked about all of the many great things we experienced together and the feelings we have for one another. She told me she loved me and continues to love me so much. She wants to give me time to heal, have closure… but in the days since that last interaction, I begin to think that I should have been more vocal. She told me that I am free to message her to clarify things, but had also said during our last call that we should probably take some weeks to heal.
I did give in and message her yesterday, just to check in and see how she was and to check whether she was still ok to ask/say some things, especially this soon. She told me she was struggling with not interacting with me in the same ways as usual - sending memes, telling me about her day - and had been thinking about me a lot but ultimately wanted to give me space. Even that gave me hope.
I agreed to put my thoughts together soon, knowing she had a busy weekend with a family wedding, but after so much soul searching over the past few days, replaying and re-reading everything, looking at pictures and videos of our times together, I still strongly feel we could get through this.
I should have acted on my issues sooner, I fully understand that. Especially now, of course. No excuse, but I want to believe that because we always got through these moments, tackled the issues in the moment and moved forward positively, that I became slack at improving myself. But I am determined to be a better person. Not just for her, but for myself too. This issue will affect any partner I would potentially ever have and I recognise how unhealthy, how frustrating it can be to deal with. I’ve booked counselling sessions, one of which I have already undertaken to make a start on addressing this problem.
But I don’t want somebody else to experience the positive changes I’m working on. I want it to be her.
I’m sure some of you have been in similar scenarios, but given my wall of text above, should I be fighting for this like my head and heart are shouting out for me to do? I feel there is so much good still here. So, so much that is worth saving. I fully appreciate the fact that this has all come from one partner’s perspective and I’m happy to try as best I can to elaborate further without giving too much personal/identifiable information away.
Also, thank you to everyone who took the time to read all of this

2023.06.10 20:15 kalsteine What’s your favorite okay food spot?
I mean like a place you have been going for a long time for that one dish that’s super okay and reliable. I’m not looking for a place that people line up to go but just an average place you go with no hassle.
For example, my go to spot for 20+ years is Mr. Jerk near Sherbourne and Wellesley. It’s not the most amazing food but never lets me down with their beef patty and jerk pork.
Since I live near downtown Toronto, would prefer a place in central Toronto.
Thanks in advance.

To anybody who is driving to anime expo and lives in the southwest Missouri region:
Idk if this is against the rules but I really need help. I just got my badge and everything for anime expo and I thought I would be ready to go. But when I got my new state ID in the mail, I read the paperwork and it says it's basically only good to verify my age but I won't be able to use it to fly. I can't get a new ID in time for the expo and I'm looking for anyone who is going and lives near me to possibly catch a ride there and back with. I offer my switch lite and Digimon D-Terminal as tribute. To anybody who sees this, please help a fellow anime fan?
(This request is to anyone who is driving there. My state ID does not allow me to fly on airplanes. Apparently some stupid new system the country started??)

2023.06.10 20:13 PancakesOfSuburbia What I like to call the travellers companion dilemma
So at this point in my young life, I’ve already done longish term travel both solo, with family, and with a friend.
My dilemma is this: What do you do when solo travel isn’t really for you, and you don’t have anybody that would be an ideal travel companion?
During my solo road trip, I faced many issues, with the main one being loneliness. I was often bored, lonely, didn’t have any ideas what to do or where to go, etc. After that trip, I decided that solo travel isn’t quite for me.
I’m now nearing the end of a 3 1/2 week long trip with my closest friend, and this had a lot of its own issues. He gets tired/bored quick, sleeps until mid-day, is terrible at making decisions, etc, however he is my only friend that is willing to travel. It’s safe to say that I won’t be planning any future trips with him.
So as someone that loves to travel, what do I do? What do you do if you don’t really enjoy solo travel, but also don’t have anybody to travel with? I have many friends, but none of them either have the funds, interest, or maturity to travel to far away places.
I know that it will be near impossible to find the perfect travel companion, but how can I find some somewhat compatible ones?

Soooo.... I felt pretty crook the other night. Just minding my own business, getting ready for bed, when a sudden wave of nausea just about dropped me. I lay down hoping it would go away. Nope.
Mad dash to the dunny, holding my hands over my mouth. As you do. Hugging the bowl, wondering WTF??? Wave after wave just kept hammering me, then, my stomach made a horrendous noise. Which proceeded to escape my ass, making me bolt up to sit on the dunny to let it rip. Hence the vomiting into a towel. IT then Begun.
Holy money, I felt like I was dying, that maybe I had become septic from my recent double mastectomy. I'm getting fluid build up drained tomorrow. Maybe I ate something that my body obviously wanted evicted asap. Maybe I got a bug.
I was sitting on the dunny hunny, And It was far from funny.
Vomiting bile into a towel.
Contemplated calling an ambo. Feeling like I'm going to pass out. Phone is in other room, I'm sweating, trying to ensure that I don't fall off or faceplant into the towel.
WHAT IF I DIE ?
My house is a mess. Dishes piled up, washing hanging on backs of chairs, kids toys everywhere, dirty clothes on bathroom floor.
Good news, I didn't die. Yayyyyyy. I lay back down and it eased off so I didn't bother with ambo run.
And yep. Got the house tidied up again. Just in case I nearly die again.

2023.06.10 20:12 mysterious_onion7744 WHY ARE SO MANY REQUIRED COURSES ONLY OFFERED FALL SEMESTER ?!?! I
Every year nearly every single required course ( or courses I’m interested in) towards my programs are only offered in fall. Does anyone else have this issue or is it just me? It’s super annoying because there’s no possible way for me to graduate on time and take the courses that interest me without taking more than five courses in fall or doing summer school😡😫. I struggle to find winter courses because every course I NEED or want to take is only in the fall. I feel like I’m wasting my winter semester because there’s no required courses and the electives I want to take are also in fall so I just have to fill my winter schedule with courses I don’t really want. Sorry for the rant but I need to know if anyone has a similar experience.

2023.06.10 20:11 The_Real_Katakuri [Chatper 1086] Rested Review: Looking back
Ch. 1086 p1_2
The chapter starts with this color spread. Very colorful, very very clean. It's very readable. Every element, including water on the characters is easily understandable, the ground is beautiful and the puddles are even more beautiful. That's the good part.
I have three problems with the cover, though:
- Mugiwara pirates again and again and again. We've had some similar color spreads in the past and it gets to a point where they feel repeated, even if they aren't. I'm convinced most readers would prefer more different characters making it to the color covers.
- Franky's hairstyle. Because Franky wasn't horrible enough in last chapter's cover, Oda needed to find a new and even more silly hairstyle for Franky. I wonder if he's ever going to swallow his pride and go back to draw Franky either with his original hairstyle or the shaved style with which he came back after the time skip. Every single other hairstyle has been ridiculous and has only served to ridicule Franky.
- The perspective is completely messed up. The flowers in the top right part of the cover show peprfectly where the vanishing point is (in the middle of the image very close to the top). The vanishing point is the point where the camera is "looking" to, even if Oda likes to put it outside the image sometimes for artistic reasons. The thing is, every character on the ground (not Luffy), and most notably Nami, is drawn with very short legs as though Oda was trying to do a very high angle shot. And that doesn't make any sense accounting for the perspective of the background, but also because he's really only shortened their legs and not the rest of their body and it's very very weird. Look at Nami's legs and the umbrella. The umbrella isn't distorted but the legs are. That defeats the purpose of distorting the legs and it simply feels like she's a dwarf now.
In any case, the work on the reflections of every character in the puddles are awesome. Ch. 1086 p3
Last chapter ended with Wapol escaping from Pangaea castle with Vivi (and Kinderella?), and this one begins and they have already successfully left Mariejoise. Igaram, Pell and Chaka are searching for king Cobra and Vivi.
It isn't clear at all when is this happening:
- The same day as last chapter but later? Probably too soon since last chapter meetings were still held.
- Next day? Or the following?
- Many days since last chapter? Very unlikely that those three are still wandering at Mariejoise completely clueless. But later events will suggest this to be the case.
I find it very strange, regardless of time, that Igaram, Pell & Chaka haven't been dealt with by the nobles. It's not like they're hiding precisely. The way I see it, there are only 2 ways to proceed with them:
- Tell them "the king is here, please come" and kill them.
- Tell them about Cobra's death and frame Sabo as soon as possible in ortder to avoid suspicion.
If they aren't killed, and the nobles are not answering to their questions about the king either, anyone would connect the dots and imagine Cobra was murdered by the nobles.
Also, it's good that Igaram cares for Vivi, but what about caring a chapter or two earlier? What was more important for Igaram than protecting Vivi? What was he actually doing??
In fact, why was Vivi waiting for a Gondola to leave the Red Line when his father was just getting to a meeting with the Gorōsei?? Ch. 1086 p4
Wapol and Vivi are hiding in the Aegis' kingdom ship and arrange a way to go with Morgans. Good. That takes partial care of explaining how they ended up with Morgans. But the real question is how did left the Red Line? Did really no one go looking for them? It's ridiculous.
First the Revolutionaries show how anyone can infiltrate at Mariejoise and now multiple people show how anyone can escape as well. The humiliation is scandalous.
Wapol doesn't want to tell Vivi about Imu or his dead father because he's sure CP0 are trying to kill him. That doesn't make sense. If you're sure they're going to kill you you don't act in your future assassin's favor. If anything, trying to get as much attention as possible from the world is the way to go. It might fail, but there's a chance the attention could make Imu want to discredit Wapol rather than kill him and fuel the conspiracy theorists. Ch. 1086 p5
With the recent announcement about Oda having eye surgery and him saying he couldn't see properly, it would be reasonable to consider how that could have affected his ability to draw.
Let me tell you the truth about two things:
- People with astigmatism don't become functionally blind until they have surgery correct their vision. They wear glasses and that's the end of it. Surgery will make Oda not need glasses, but that's all. The astigmatism wasn't preventing him from drawing at all.
- Look at the cover again. Oda can draw really well when he wants. Look now at this page. It's difficult to know whether it's king Stelly in the first panel or not because he's as much of a scribble as Sabo's picture, that might be a legit scribble.
Spandam, Gismonda ans some other agents are lookinig for Vivi and Sabo, but not the former CP9 members, who had Vivi in their custody and lost her. Also, where's Rob Lucci and what's he doing? Is he completely ignoring his duty as well? Ch. 956 p9
So... Stelly was staring so hard at Vivi's poster that he didn't see Sabo's poster and couldn't listen to anything regarding the terrorist attack lead by his brother despite the whole Mariejoise was being searched for him. Interesting. Ch. 1086 p6
The gorōsei pick up the ringing den den mushi. This is the only relevant thing happening in this whole page.
The narrator puts emphasis on Cobra's death and Vivi's disappearance but not on the clash between the Revolutionaries and the admirals. Why is that? It's to bolster the retcon'd timeline. Ch. 925 p9 & 10_11
Remember that back in chapter 925, the highlight about the Reverie was the clash between the Revolutionary Army and the admirals. And it was said to happen during the 4th day of the Reverie. However, in this and the immediately previous chapters, events are happening during the 7th day (the last).
Another detail is that then the silhouettes indicated that the news included Sabo fighting the admirals, but during this recent flashback, Sabo didn't even met them. Ch.. 956 p4
Then, in ch. 956 Garp explains that the incident with Cobra happens after the Reverie ended. That clearly separates the operation of the Revolutionary army (4th day) and Cobra's death (+7th day).
At the same time, Garp says that happened after they left, and that it was reported to him even later. And asks Neptune and his family not to fear humans because of it.
This and Shirahoshi's reaction make sense only if they had no better reasons to fear humans, like Shirahoshi being assaulted a second time by Charloss, and if Shirahoshi bid farewell to Vivi while everything was fine and now she's surprised to hear that.
But that's not what the recent flashback tells us. Ch. 1086 p7
Contrary to last page, this one has mane things to consider.
Imu wants to "test" the "Mother Flame", a Vegapunk's invention, and the Saturn says they haven't had the chance to try it yet. Another gorōsei suggests a forest for the test but Imu wants "Lulucia" kingdom. The gorōsei show concern for the choice but at no point they question it.
We will see in the next page that they're talking about the weapon that destroyed Lulucia kingdom. And the first thing that calls for my attention is that the gorōsei look like complete amateurs here.
They've had a mass destruction weapon for "some" time, but haven't tested it yet. Can you imagine how many things could go wrong when trying new technology for the very first time? But don't be fooled, Imu doesn't want to "test" it. She wants to use it.
The gorōsei have been waiting with such a weapon in their power without testing it because...?? It's obvious that there must be a lot of places in the world were Imu, the gorōsei and the World Government in general should be perfectly fine with testing the Mother Flame, from certain uninhabited areas of the Red Line, to unaffiliated countries and from the top of my head, if anything else, Punk Hazard comes to mind. A government island they think is closed off because Akainu and Aokiji made it useless. It's the perfect place to test these kind of things. But they think they've had "no chance to try it yet". Sure.
In an attempt to defend Vegapunk from the undeniable increasing evidence of his evilness, I read some say the weapon is not "he Mother Flame" but "Uranus" and that the Mother Flame is only a power source.
That makes even less sense. First, because Imu clearly instructs to use the Mother Flame and not Uranus. And second because there's no way they can actually think they haven't had the chance to try a power source Ch. 1086 p8_9
Imu answers about the reason to choose Lulucia and the five gorōsei are formally introduced. And three things stand out to me:
- They're named after planets of the solar system (other than the ones already used lol) and at the same time, they're not. There's Saturn and Mars, but there's also Ju Peter and V. Nasjūrō, who read like Jupiter and Venus + japanese traditional name ending. And lastly there's Valcury, who by elimination and obvious similarity should reference Mercury, but this one is clearly different. And I wonder if this is Oda wanting to name the gorōsei after planets and at the same time being obsessed with being unpredictable.
- With this names two middle names are introduced: "Ju" and "V.". So far, only "D." has been a thing. It was odd enough if you think about it, but the fact that now two more exist and that they do so in order to not write the name exactly like the planet feels quite odd to me as well.
- What is this "warrior god" thing? What does that even mean for them? I mean, I understand what "warrior god" means, but what's an "agriculture warrior god" or a "finance warrior god"??
Has Jupiter ever waged war in the name of agriculture or something like that? I get it, it's something meant to assign specific roles to each of them despite they have acted like a council for 1086 chapters, but wouldn't it make more sense to be "finance god" and "justice god" instead without the "warrior" part?
Also, do they really have any authority over their "department"? Last page showed they are nothing but the butlers of Imu. It's difficult to imagine they have agency.
To me, this looks like the upteenth attempt at hyping us for nothing. First, people living in Mariejoise were titled "World Nobles". Then they were rebranded as "Celestial Dragons". And recently they've been rebranded again as "Gods". And for no reason and without explanation. Just the narrator coming up with new ways to extol them. But at the end of the day, words are just that and so far, even the gorōsei have only prooved (this chapter too) to be very incompetent.
Now that I think about it...
- Is V. Nasjūrō going to have problems because some countries are increasingly refusing to pay tribute? He's in charge of finances, right?
- Is Ju Peter going to be held responsible for the lack of food they're currently facing?
- Shouldn't Valcury have been the one to... Oh wait, we haven't gotten to that part, yet.
Imu says Lulucia has been chosen for proximity alone. So, officially, both the fact that Sabo had gone there and that the country had rebelled aren't the reason. I wonder whether Imu's answer is just a way of saying the gorōsei to not even ask for explanations and just obey or actually a whimsical and very plot convenient occurrence.
The gorōsei note the convenience of being able to use the Mother Flame "freely" and I'm sure they're not talking about authorization, because Imu rules the world, but about the cost. Certainly the Mother Flame must consume a lot of energy. If only they had some scientist trying to develop a troll-science self´-sustaining power source, right?
Well, they got one but they're very heeadstrong in killing him, for some reason. Ch. 1086 p10
We get to see the seraphim we hadn't yet seen. I don't think there's anything relevant in this page, but I've read some people arguing S-Croc could be a girl, you know, the old theory about Crocodile being originally a woman since Ivankov said he made Croc a huge favor, even though it could actually be anything else.
Personally I don't think S-Croc has particularly female traits in this image, but it's true that he has the same starry eyes as S-Snake, while S-Shark and S-Hawk do not (the others haven't shown their eyes). But if I had to guess, I'd put my money in Oda has decided to always have at least one gender-ambiguous character to troll the readers with left and right. Ch. 1086 p11
Sabo telling more of what we already knew and saw. Ch. 1086 p12
And this page is again, dedicated to justify the retcon'd timeline as though it was not.
Back in chapter 1060 (that's the beginning of this very arc, do you still remember what this is arc was about?), Sabo was at Lulucia when the annihilation happened. Ch. 1060 p13, 14_15 & 16
We saw him as we were only seeing Lulucia and its citizens being shot by the Mother Flame and also the call ending abruptly immediately after the shot.
Now, Sabo says he was near, but not exactly there. And tries to explain the ending call saying it was an indirect call that was "rerouted" through another den den mushi on Lulucia.
First I wonder how do you do that from a ship? It's true that the specifics about how den den mushi are operated have never been told, but regardless, if this "rerouting" were a thing, surely it would have come in handy to many characters through the story before.
Also, since when can Marines (or any third party) locate den den mushi? They have been able to intercept communications and listen to them, but not guess where was any of the snails making the call. And even if they could, given he himself says it was not an encrypted den den mushi, hence being vulnerable to interception, why wouldn't they locate the original signal from Sabo just like the one at Lulucia? Ch. 1086 p13
I don't remember Lulucia's name being romanized before, but it can be read in the ship's sail. It's written with a C (until another assistant thinks otherwise at least).
Sabo rules out living thing and natural disaster as the cause for Lulucia's annihilation and Ivankov pretty much implies Imu is someone from the void century who has lived this long because she's immortal thanks to the Ope Ope no mi.
Regarding Sabo's claim, I think we've seen all sorts of surreal things in One Piece to agree his assumption is very bold. A shadow in the sky is no indicator of no living thing or natural disaster. In fact we've seen shadows in the sky caused no more and no less by living beings and natural phenomena. Ch. 299 p12_13
On his part, Ivankov's assumption is also quite bold. Does a name really reference one single instance of a living being? There can only have ever been one Imu? What about one Oars?
There's also plenty of people known for their outstanding longevity like Kureha. (Interesting that this made me think of her...)
It's true that Ivankov accounts for the name being not truly a reason next page, but the fact that he implies it with this force under an argument he knows is very weak... This is just Oda telling us "this is this way because a character is saying it" or trolling us for fun. Ch. 1086 p14
Also, as I said last chapter, anyone can know of Imu and it was completely unreasonable of Imu not to tell Cobra about her, considering they were going to kill him no matter what and she said she was going to address his questions.
Could anyone else than Imu from 800 years ago be the one commanding the gorōsei? Why not? What kind of reasoning is that?
Next Ivankov makes his best guess of the day and claims Vegapunk must have created the Mother Flame (confirmed some pages ago by Imu). And it's now of all assumptions that Dragon intervenes to stop jumping to conclusions. Really??
"Vegapunk would never intentionally design a dedicated killing machine". What kind of joke is this?
- Mass-produced Pacifista model 1
- Mass-produced Pacifista model 2
- Mass-produced Pacifista model 3
And after this and out of absolutely nowhere, they speak of ancient weapons. This page and the previous one is some of the most forced text I've seen in One Piece. Ch. 1086 p15
For the final page of the chapter (yes, 15 pages only again, 2 of them cover), a new character makes his debut by sentencing to death Saint Donquixote Mjosgard.
He's named Saint Figarland Garling and is said to have been king of God Valley. Unlike everyone else, apparently, I'm not going to theorize about his relationship with Shanks, I want to talk to you about two other characters.
First, Dr. Kureha. Ch. 154 p8
She looks just like she was Garling's twin sister. It's interesting, because a couple of pages back the matter of longevity was brought up and now we see a world noble said to have been king of a land outside Mariejoise and outside the Red Line. As we've been told in a number of occasions (last one being last chapter), only the Nefertari family were founders of the World Government who stayed at their homeland. This means if Garling was actually king of God Valley and not just a descendant of the last king, he's from the void century. Not as an hypothesis like with Imu, but confirmed. Thus, the simmilarities with Dr. Kureha aren't just physical. Both have incredible longevity and I think it was worth noting.
Last, I want to talk about Garling's predecessor: Crescent moon Gally. https://preview.redd.it/pst3taqyc85b1.png?width=548&format=png&auto=webp&s=cd252883d36d4c0c3ae546f045bb46fead21c52e
He's the villain in the first version of the Romance Dawn oneshot that would later become One Piece. As you can see, The crescent moon motive in the hair is there just like with Garling (and the nose too). If you take the crescent moon out of the hat and apply it to the hair together with the beard, and change the mustache stretching to the sides for more hair to make it more exaggerated, you get Garling. Even the pose and facial expression is pretty much the one in this image.
Also, in his original name written in japanese, there's no indication of whether his name is "GaRling" or just "Galling".
And that would be... Oh! I almost forgot! Yeah... given Garling sentenced Mjosgard, where does this leave Saint Topman Valcury? Wasn't he the "Justice warrior god"? Why isn't he the one handing out justice? What other affairs regarding justice does he manage if not judging disputes among celestial dragons?

2023.06.10 20:10 Dad-Squatch Personal locater battery replacement question
I have an ACR Electronics AquaLink personal locator beacon that has an expired battery which needs to be replaced. I can’t find a place near me that does that. I called the company and their customer service didn’t seem to have a clue. Does anyone know of a mail in service or a place near Portland, OR? I see you can order batteries online but am not sure if replacing the battery is straight forward or something I shouldn’t attempt on my own. Any ideas? Thanks.
