Here it is, Wise Ones: Pantheopsychic Comics Issue 3 Part One "SIDE B", which concludes the Fundamentalist Process of Salvation including a critique of Fundamentalist Christianity, which is argued to be logically untenable in the face of the logical invincibility of Pantheopsychism and the Pantheopsychic Process of Salvation, which I submit is the actual Christianity and actual form of salvation that objectively exists.
Page 20 has been omitted for pic number and space reasons, as it is an illustrative "poster" for "The Remission of Sins" and thus not essential to the above.
Enjoy, and thank you all so much for your perusal of Pantheopsychic Theology, which (I challenge) is the most logical and logically possible form of Judeo-Christian Theology that shall ever exist.
And as an added bonus, we learn the Pantheopsychist's real name! Cool!

2023.03.29 11:37 emmmabeeee Credit card fraud...maybe?

I recently got an order confirmation from a site in my email even though I didn't buy anything from it. I tracked the order number and it's under my name but a Texas email address and using my email address.
I checked the order details and it's not one of my current cards and pulled a credit report but no fraudulent accounts opened.
Any reason this could've happened?? So confused what the benefit is if they're only using my name and email but no other info??

2023.03.29 11:28 houstontexas2022 How a legal battle over an endangered chicken could reshape the Texas oil industry

How a legal battle over an endangered chicken could reshape the Texas oil industry
POLITICS How a legal battle over an endangered chicken could reshape the Texas oil industry
Edward McKinley March 28, 2023 A lesser prairie chicken is seen amid the bird's annual mating ritual near Milnesand, N.M., on April 8, 2021. A lesser prairie chicken is seen amid the bird's annual mating ritual near Milnesand, N.M., on April 8, 2021.Adrian Hedden/AP A wild chicken species in the Texas Panhandle could stymie the nation’s oil and gas producers, industry insiders fear.
After decades of advocacy from environmental groups, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service this week named the lesser prairie chicken as an endangered species. The bird, which lives in grasslands across five states, including the Texas panhandle, once numbered in the millions. Recent estimates suggest there are about 32,000 remaining.
RELATED: Big Oil is making billions, but don't expect lower gas prices
The bird was previously categorized as endangered in 2014, but a judge repealed that as part of a lawsuit from the Permian Basin Petroleum Association that asked for more time to prove that existing conservation efforts would work. Nearly a decade later, the service is trying once again. Industry groups and Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton oppose the move and have sued, claiming the plan in place is working.
An endangered species designation triggers stringent conservation rules to protect the animal and its habitat. Existing oil and gas projects, as well as certain renewable energy projects, could be grandfathered in, but new projects could be blocked entirely or require expensive additional permits.
“This will add significant time and uncertainty to those permitting requirements," said Ben Shepperd, president of the Permian Basin Petroleum Association.
“We’re talking about the most prolific oil field not only in Texas but in North America," he said. "And we think significant portions of oil and gas could be shuddered or negatively impacted, dramatically impacted, in such a way that it would disrupt the state of Texas’ economy, and frankly our national security and our energy security."
The listing also affects ranchers, as livestock grazing in certain areas could be harmful to the prairie chickens. Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller lambasted the decision as a power grab and overreach from the Biden Administration, and he suggested it could contribute to rising food costs.
The decision to name the bird as endangered was announced last fall.
Industry groups, including Shepperd's and several cattle groups, are suing once again to stop the listing. And Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is suing separately on behalf of the agriculture and energy arms of the state government.
Are the birds rebounding?
The current argument boils down to whether or not the existing conservation plan is working to save the birds.
Known as the “rangewide plan,” it’s administered by the Western Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies, which is comprised of the Texas Department of Fish and Wildlife and its counterparts from other states in the region. The effort began about a decade ago.
Critics of the new designation say populations of the bird are either stable or growing, and its habitat is protected. The plan requires oil and gas companies seeking to develop land in the chicken’s habitat to invest in conservation efforts elsewhere to cancel out the damage from their projects.
David Yoskowitz, director of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, also disagreed with the decision, writing, "We believe that the listing decision jeopardizes years of voluntary conservation efforts by landowners and industry."
But the national Fish and Wildlife Service said that active oil and gas wells in the chickens' habitat have increased by more than 80 percent over the last 10 years, a significant threat.
"Voluntary conservation efforts have helped conserve key habitat for the lesser prairie-chicken," the agency wrote in its announcement of its listing decision, "but have not demonstrated an ability to offset the threats and reverse the trends of habitat loss and fragmentation facing the lesser prairie-chicken."
An internal audit, which was shared as part of a federal public comment period, said the plan is on track to run out of money in the coming years, in part because funds were diverted from their intended purpose.
For instance, it said, the Western Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies borrowed money from the supposedly permanent conservation fund, spending some on paying staff and more on a new, $650,000 headquarters building in Boise, Idaho, which is nowhere near the habitat for lesser prairie chickens.
Michael Robinson, a senior conservation advocate with the Center for Biological Diversity, described the rangewide plan as a “scam.”
“We’ve had a chance to actually look at how that plan that was supposed to obviate the need for a listing has played out,” he said. “It’s shocking, and the lesser prairie chicken has lost a great deal of habitat that was not replaced.”
Robinson's group, which has since the 1990s petitioned the federal government to name the bird as endangered, says the chicken's habitat has declined over the past decade and that oil and gas companies are generating “phantom” restoration credits without actually preserving any habitat.
For example, the group argued that the rangewide plan claimed to have restored 8,000 acres of chicken habitat by thinning out shinnery oak. But according to academic studies, those trees are “critical to conservation of some populations of prairie chickens.”
“The lesser prairie chicken has been on a downward trajectory for a long time, and with that and many other species, it takes years and even decades to recover them," Robinson said.

2023.03.29 09:04 Any-Restaurant-5228 27 (F) ended things with me 33 (m) but not sure where I went wrong

I met this girl through a mutual friend over facebook. I initiated the convo and it seemed fine in the beginning. I was asking questions she was asking them back, the usual stuff. Than she gave a dry reply just okay when to a question I asked. We didn’t text for a week and I initiated the convo again. Than the convo was better where we both were asking each other questions. I was carrying the convo and she would end it most of the time. I initiated convos the first three to four times. I also said good morning text to her but she never reciprocated it by saying it back. She often give me pretty dry replies . I would ask her how her day was she would just say good.
I asked her for coffee she replied saying we should talk more before going on a first date which I was okay with. I asked to call her and she just said yeah sounds good. I never asked for her number because she didn’t say anything other than yeah sounds good . It seemed like she was not excited about the call as she never asked when/ time or for my number. and so the call never happened. Was I wrong here?
We talk a bit more over text and I ask her out again on a first date. She says yes. We decide on a day. I didn’t plan the date neither did she. At this point she started to initiate conversations the last two times we spoke. She was giving better replies and tried to carry the convo. I didn’t realize it at the time but now that I look at our last conversation it seems like I rarely asked her questions back and didn’t try to carry the conversation the last time we spoke. I was busy at the time but tried my best to respond in a timely manner.
So since the conversation ended we didn’t speak for two days. I started the conversation by replying to her story a day before our date. She replied normally and didn’t confirm the date. We talked two to three times more on our supposed date day and she talked normally, wasn’t mad and didn’t bring up the date.
I didn’t reply to her cuz I think she forgot. Next day i bring it up and I acknowledge that we had a date and that I’m busy cuz of I’m travelling to Texas soon. She ended things with me and said it’s not going to work. And wished me good luck. That’s it. She didn’t mention the date at all. Was she angry at me? Did she remember the date? She didn’t talk about it at all after we decided on a day. I am not sure if she remembered the date at all. She didn’t unfriend me so I removed her myself on facebook three days later .
My question to you all is who went wrong here? Do you think I should reach out if I’m in the wrong
TDLR: 27 (F) ended things 33(M) before our first date? Who was wrong?

2023.03.29 08:41 yikesaroon My apartment complex has posted my cell phone number outside my apartment. Is this legal?

Pretty much exactly as the title says. I live in Texas, if it matters. The complex did not ask permission. They changed the gate rules to my apartment complex, and decided that the way delivery personnel will get in is by accessing a commumity directory at the gate that will list every tennant's cell phone number. We just got notice today on our front doors.I do not think my cell phone number is public information, and I believe that they should have asked my permission. I'm not sure at this time if they have posted my full legal name and my apartment number as well or if it is just my cell phone number. Do I have any legal right to ask them to remove my phone number (or any other information) from this list?

2023.03.29 07:19 3neth [Q] How do I compare lotteries' chances of winning jackpot, when they differ in the maximum number of plays?

However, there is one way to boost your chances of winning the lottery, says [Dr. Mark] Glickman: Your odds do improve by buying more tickets for each game.

1. How can I deduce which lottery's jackpot is easiest to win, when they differ in the maximum plays?

2. For example, which has the highest chance of winning : 10 plays of Lotto 649 vs. 5 plays of DAILY GRAND (assume I pick $7 million lump sum) vs. 2 plays of DAILY KENO?

Data for 3 lotteries from the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation

Jackpot $5 million $1,000/day for life or $7 million lump sum $2.5 million
Odds of winning jackpot 1 in 13,983,816 1 in 13,348,188 1 in 2,147,181
Matching numbers required to win jackpot 6/6 5/5 + Grand Number 10/20 on a $10 bet
Number pool 49 49 + Grand Number (7) 70
Number of tickets one person can buy 10 5 2

Vice President Kamala Harris and Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff landed midday today in Accra, the capital of Ghana, a country of about 33 million people slightly larger than Michigan on Africa’s west coast.
The 54 countries in Africa vary widely in language, religion, and culture, and Harris will visit three countries which initially seem unrelated. During her week on the African continent, in addition to Ghana, Harris will also visit Tanzania, a country bigger than Texas of about 62 million people on the east coast that is known for its natural wonders—Mount Kilimanjaro and the Serengeti plain are both on the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Heritage List. She will then visit neighboring Zambia, a landlocked country slightly larger than Texas with about 20 million people, where about one third of the country is game management areas or national parks, including one that protects the famous waterfall Mosi-oa-Tunya, or Smoke that Thunders—also known as Victoria Falls.
Harris’s visit is part of the Biden administration’s plan to counter Chinese and Russian influence on the African continent. That continent is rich in natural resources, and other countries want access to them. Between 2000 and 2016, China invested heavily in a number of African nations, sometimes in exchange for resources, sometimes for political alliances. It has become Africa’s second most important trading partner with about $250 billion in trade in 2021, just slightly behind the European Union, while U.S.-Africa trade in 2021 was about $64 billion.
Russia’s interests in Africa have tended toward support for authoritarian regimes. Russia focused on Africa after its 2014 invasion of Ukraine began to isolate it from other nations and their resources. The Russian Wagner Group of mercenary fighters has been a key player in Africa since then, often called in by authoritarian leaders to suppress political opposition in exchange for access to mines or other valuable resources.
The Wagner Group has supported anti-democratic movements across the semi-arid Sahel region, which stretches across the northern part of the continent in a band above Ghana. After recent failures in Ukraine, the leader of the Wagner Group, Yevgeny Prigozhin, says he will turn his attention back to Africa, although it is unclear that he will be able to raise the necessary forces to make a major push.
African nations have historical reasons to be leery of European governments, who have tended to want to exploit the continent’s resources for themselves at the expense—often the deadly expense—of Africa’s inhabitants. They are also leery of the U.S., for when African nations began to throw off colonial rule, the Soviet Union tended to support those movements while the U.S. tended instead to support right-wing forces. More recently, the Trump years continued to weaken ties between the U.S and Africa as the United States withdrew from engagement with what the former president allegedly called “sh*thole countries.”
The Biden administration has worked to repair relations between the U.S. and Africa on the stated principle that Africans must have control over their own countries and their own future. The administration hosted the U.S.-Africa leaders summit in December 2022, where it announced that it backed the admission of the African Union to the Group of 20, welcoming the 55 member states of the African Union to the intergovernmental forum that focuses on global issues. The African Union has wanted admission to the G20 for years, noting that they are currently left out of discussions that affect them—most recently, the plans to address the coronavirus—and the administration’s promise that it would back the African Union’s admission was an important sign of the administration’s focus on strengthening ties between the continent and the U.S.
Since then, the Biden administration has pledged more than $6.5 billion to the continent to aid security, support democratic institutions, and advance civil rights and the rule of law. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Linda Thomas-Greenfield, First Lady Jill Biden, and Secretary of State Antony Blinken have all visited the continent.
Harris is the highest-ranking U.S. official to visit and will emphasize the deep connections between Africa and the spread of Africans around the world, a process known as the African diaspora. In Ghana, Harris will visit the Cape Coast slave castle, used to hold enslaved Africans before they were shipped across the Atlantic for sale, primarily in the Caribbean. But the connections between Africa and the Americas reach far beyond the legacy of enslavement: Accra is the burial place of early twentieth-century U.S. writer and intellectual W. E. B. DuBois, for example. Harris will also visit Lusaka, Zambia, where as a child she visited her maternal grandfather when he worked there as a civil engineer.
The administration’s outreach to Africa is not simply a way to counter China and Russia on the continent. The White House explained that Harris is visiting these three countries specifically because their governments are investing in their democracies at a time when democracies around the globe are under siege.
Harris will launch her meeting with Ghana’s president Nana Akufo-Addo. When the two leaders met before, in September 2021, Akufo-Addo identified the key issue facing Africa and the world, saying: “[O]ur big challenge—and it is a challenge of all those who want to develop democratic institutions on our continent—is to ensure and reassure our people that democratic institutions can be a vehicle for the resolution of their big problem—that is economic development as the means to eradicate poverty on the continent.”
This is a great summary of the central issue for democracy today.
In Africa the fallout from the Covid-19 pandemic, alongside a rise in interest rates, has made it hard for a number of nations to pay their international debts, which quintupled between 2000 and 2020. At the same time, the Russian blockade of Ukraine has cut food supplies while international sanctions against Russia for its 2022 invasion of Ukraine has cut fertilizer supplies to the continent, increasing food shortages.
Those crises offer possibilities for international cooperation to invest in the African continent, especially as the new African Continental Free Trade Area agreement smooths trade across the continent and, with luck, brings rural regions into better contact with more urban areas.
But those same crises also open the way for strongmen to take over by promising to solve their country’s shortages. Russian disinformation in Africa drives pro-Russian and anti-European sentiment; a new Russian social media network launched on the continent in February 2022. Last week, Russian president Vladimir Putin claimed to have written off $20 billion of African debt and blamed the West for his inability to deliver the fertilizer he had promised.
But while democracy is under siege around the world, Freedom House, the non-profit organization that tracks the health of democracy worldwide, noted last September that African countries have shown important efforts to expand the rule of law and strong democratic institutions. Ghana, for example, has become more democratic but is threatened by the instability to its north.
Still, in August, the pan-African, nonpartisan research network Afrobarometer found that African voters want democratic institutions. According to a report from Chatham House that reviewed the polling, Africans “believe that the military should stay out of politics, that political parties should freely compete for power, that elections are an imperfect but essential tool for choosing their leaders, and that it is time for the old men who cling to power to step aside.” Seventy percent of Africans say they prefer democracy to any other form of government, 82% reject “strongman” rule, 77% reject one-party rule, and 75% reject military rule (even in countries that have recently experienced military coups).
Those impressive numbers in a continent of very young people—the median age is just 19—are an obvious reason for the U.S. to want better relations at a time when both President Biden and Secretary of State Blinken have been very clear that they believe democracy at home depends at least in part on democracy overseas.
And the danger to democracy at home was crystal clear last night, as former president Trump held a rally in Waco, Texas, where in 1993 a 51-day government siege of the headquarters of a religious cult gave birth to the modern anti-government militia movement. Since then, Waco has been a touchstone for violent attacks on the government. There, last night, Trump stood on stage with his hand over his heart while loudspeakers played not the national anthem but a song recorded by January 6 insurrectionists. Footage from the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol played on a screen behind him.

2023.03.29 06:49 Mission-Egg794 The Day I Thought I Won The Lottery

I used to think success was driving down a beach-front highway having to choose between breathing in the new car smell from your convertible, or putting the top down for some salt air.
1 week ago, I had neither of those choices and today the very thought of beach air and new car smell makes me fucking sick.
Before I get into this, let me be clear: this is not a confession of guilt for anything I’ve done. I never wanted all this shit. From the very start it was only about one thing: Getting my son, James a birthday present.
I wasn’t even trying to get him the BEST or the BIGGEST or the most EXPENSIVE birthday present. Just
A present. The present I set out to get.
But instead...
I went to the 7/11 on Santa Monica and bought a MegaMillions lotto ticket.
My name is Daniel Baxter, and this is the day I thought I won the lottery.

April 8, 2022 – 2:03AM
It’s 2 o’clock in the morning and I’m at the Hollywood Casino. I’ve got every penny to my name spread across the craps table and some dickhead on his bachelor party holds the dice of fate in his clammy little hands.
My last 3 meals have been from discarded room service trays at LAX Hilton, my truck doesn’t start without a prayer and the tires have been leaking air for the last month which is fine because now I know the location of every free air filling station in LA County.
If I’d paid my phone bill, it’d be buzzing a crater in my leg from my ex, Lenora, asking if I’d picked up our son’s birthday gift with the $200 she gave me.
“Gave me” isn’t quite the right term. She handed it to me with a scowl then told me “if you gamble this shit you’ll never fucking see him again.” Things had been tense lately.
But none of that matters because this guy’s been hot and it’s with his help that I’ve turned that 200 hundred into almost 3 grand. The only question is; are the rhythms with me or not?
Maybe you call it God. Maybe you call it Karma or the natural vibe of the earth or mercury or whatever. When the rhythms are on, everything goes your way. You crush your yearly review at work and get the raise you’re after or you’re at some party and you’ve got everyone eating outta the palm of your hand.
Most things are math. Craps is math. Poker is math. Phone bills are math. Divorce rates are math and if I keep having to eat off of room service trays, the likelihood of me waking up with diarrhea is math.
It’s all just probability. But when the rhythms are on, the probability doesn’t matter. You could take a 1 and a million shot back-to-back and hit it twice. That’s what the rhythm can do for you.
Summer of 2018 I was up over 2 million. I couldn’t lose a hand of blackjack, I couldn’t crap out if I tried, I couldn’t say the wrong thing to Lenora and every time I walked into the room my son, James, would light up like a fucking lantern.
It used to be me and Lenora at the tables. The place was always open, the food is fine and the drinks are free. If we weren’t at the tables we were in the lounge talking Black Jack strategy or in the bar talking game theory or hanging out at the slots like a couple’a mice pressing a button and waiting for the cheese to pop out.
Sometimes it’s nice to be a mouse. I’ve got rats in my house. They don’t pay rent or go food shopping. All they have to do is avoid eating a piece of death cheese or poison and honestly that’s not too far off from how I live anyways.
When we had James, things changed though. As Lenora put it “risking your son’s dinner isn’t chasing something it’s chasing nothing.” And I guess the 45-minute commute to the Hollywood wasn’t a valuable use of her time. Lots of people commute to work even longer. When I was working at Goldman, I commuted an hour and a half each way from Connecticut. Granted I was on a train but the point is we all commute to work.
It was nice having her here. It was nice seeing James with a smile. It was nice to check my bank account and feel a life raft around me, rather than a black hole forming in my bellybutton.
But the rhythms shifted.
Now it’s just me here next to Lenny with the beard, Jackie with the cigar and Jonie who’s been serving drinks here so long her face should be on the highway billboards. After Lenora broke it off with me she got together with Kelton who works for a hedge fund which (for the record) is still gambling. He’s just doing it with other people’s money.
James’ 9th birthday is three days away. He wants an iPad and soon as I cash out, I’ll be able to pick one up, maybe kick some back to Lenora and spread some cash around to the litany of people I’m on the hook to.
I’m one big night away from wiping it all out. I just need one hit. One night of pure rhythm... and I’ll be back.
The shooter shakes the dice in his hand then tosses ‘em. I watch them clack on the table walls below me, but before they even settle on the pass line, I can already feel the star implode in my stomach.
In a flash, my hard work is raked away by some new guy named Carl with a moustache and not a single ounce of sympathy.
The party’s at Lenora (and Kelton’s) which was fine because honestly, I didn’t just have rats.
The rats came in chasing the cockroaches but when a bunch of them got into my Cadbury Mini Egg stash and died under the living room floor, a pack of fleas picked the carcass clean before making their way into the carpet above. So, yeah...at the moment I have fleas, cockroaches and rats. I had a bug bomb guy coming in a couple days but things were gonna be a little itchy until then.
It's three days until the party. I’ve got no gift and if I show up without that 200 bucks I may never see my kid again.

April 8, 2022 – 6:32AM
There’s only so much you can do on a security guard’s salary and being paid $12 an hour to guard millions of dollars in Mercedes automobiles is hilarious. What am I supposed to do if some guy comes in to steal a car? Lay my life on the line and hope my out-of-pocket HMO covers bullet wounds?
I don’t even have dental. I got a root canal that needed to be recapped 10 minutes after it was put in.
I’ve been on Mr. Jenkins about a raise but he keeps telling me “we gotta sell more cars, Davey,” as if I’m the one selling cars. I’m a fucking security guard what the hell’s that gotta do with me? Last I checked it was my job to keep cars on the lot and getting them off was yours.
Jenkins owns every car dealer on Van Nuys. Maybe you’ve seen his ads on TV where he slides into frame wearing a suit while riding a surfboard just to say “COME ON DOWN!” He can afford to buy a surfboard for tv ad that has no mention of surfing or aquatic sports of any kind but he can’t pay me an extra $3 an hour so I can re-introduce cold foods to my diet.
I spend most of my shift eyeing the mint green on onyx black SLS convertible they keep in the lobby. It’s flashy but it’s got a nut sack under the hood so you know you could back it up if you went toe-to-toe with some clown at a red light. Sometimes I just stare at it but I never touch it. I only wanna touch it when it’s mine. Which it would be...
Maybe I could steal it and sell it to get the iPad and some other shit. I know all the codes but then again I wouldn’t need the whole car. The thing costs half a mill. Maybe I could lift a rear-view mirror. Who would notice? Then again with the way the rhythm’s set I’d probably bump into the fucking FBI on the way out.
I’ve been doing my best to get things together but the cards aren’t falling my way and there’s not much you can really do about that. I’ve been going to the Hollywood for 15 years so I know I’m due for a run.
Me and Lenny talking about this all the time at the lounge. Sometimes you’re on the downbeat and sometimes you’re on the upbeat. Lately I feel like it’s been all downs but the thing about being a father though, is that you’re not the only one on that ride.
It used to be that I could take a few down weeks or months even. Sleep in the car, call the landlord and talk them out of breaking down the door but when you got a kid everything changes. You suffer, he suffers. Lately Lenora’s been paying for that but you see she keeps a tally. She says she doesn’t but she does.
Every time she has to pay for something she looks at me like I’m the biggest piece of shit then says “It’s ok, David.” Which it really isn’t.
The fees and stuff aren’t the real problem. It’s being able to take James out and take care of him. She wants to take that away from me and honestly I don’t blame her.
Last week my card got declined trying to pay for ice cream. James had already eaten half of his and the lady made us give it back. He didn’t talk to me the whole way home then 2 days later Lenora told me James didn’t really like spending time with me anymore. A week after that she filed for sole custody and told me they were thinking about moving to Chicago. Who the fuck would want to live there? It’s cold as fuck and the people are assholes.

April 8, 2022 – 12:20PM
I do pickups for a porta-john company on the side. It’s just temporary. I don’t clean the shit I just spray down the units and suck out cans and shit with a wet-vac before this guy named Pete sticks a hose in the back and drains the whole thing out.
I’m always surprised by what people put on the walls of a john. Usually it’s just drawings like hearts and shit but sometimes the rhythm finds you there too. One time I spotted a phone number Sharpied on a toilet seat but it was missing 1 number. 8 digits. Kinda like 4 roulette numbers right?
I took em to the Hollywood and won 5 grand on one roll! Hasn’t worked again for me yet... but that’s the thing about it man.
But today I’m cleaning out a row of johns after some music festival which by the way is far and away the worst clean ups to get. Sure you see these kids all cleaned up online in some tweed outfit or some shit but you should see the shit that comes out of these kids. It’s like paving tar with glitter and red bull cans.
I look down in the last john I’m hosing down and I see something. Peaking out of the mounds I see: a $20 bill.
I stared at it for a second but I could hear Pete coming down the line about to suck it into oblivion. I never seen cash in the john before. Sometimes you hear a coin clank through the hose but a 20 bill just staring you right in the face?
I did what any man would do. I grabbed it and when I pulled my hand out I was half expecting it to be missing a layer of skin.
Later I’m sitting in the truck staring at this 20 bucks thinking “why would this come to me?” There had to be a reason. It wasn’t just on the floor of some john. It was in the last john after the nastiest event at a time when all I needed was one shot.
It was the rhythm.
But having to do that for just $20 didn’t add up. There had to have been a greater purpose and you know what they say about money. You don’t let it sleep. You wanna get that money out and get it working.
Craps kicked my teeth in this morning and you can’t do shit with 20 bucks on a blackjack table. I had to think bigger.
Then I’m driving home from work and I see the 7/11. Powerball was at 2.11 BILLION. The biggest in history. If you got all 6 numbers right you got the whole chicken. If you got 5 you got just shy of 8 million bucks. Boom.
I had my usual numbers but this wasn’t a usual day. I told the cashier to give me “all randoms today.” 10 slips at $2 each.
That night I sat down on my couch waiting for the Powerball to come on tv... then I blacked out.
The next thing I knew I was staring at 6 numbers lit up on my tv screen: 08, 07, 14, 29, 40, 16
And on my slip: 08, 07, 14, 29, 40, 22
I had 5 out of 6 numbers. I’d just won 8 million dollars

April 9, 2022 – 9:01AM
I’m standing in line at the California Lottery Offices. It’s not some huge expansive place. It’s a shitty little line up of people with various ailments trying to dispute their $5 winning ticket.
My mind is racing. Who do I pay back first? Do they give me the cash here? Is it in a duffel bag? When do I have to hold that big ass check? Do I wear a mask? I saw a guy do it in a scream mask once to maintain his anonymity. Honestly it might be nice to be seen. Not only has everyone seen me as a piece of shit forever but also I haven’t exactly kept a detailed list of everyone I owe money to.
It’d be good for people to just hit me up, I can cut a check and tell them “thanks for your patience.” Maybe I’d even give them a little off the top as a tip.
The guy a the counter basically spat in my face; “It’s gotta be reviewed. Takes 2-5 days. We’ll email you a link to collect any winnings.” It was like I just accused him of something. No congratulations or anything which at first, I was pissed about but then I realized that clearly I wasn’t the first asshole who thought they won the lottery.
Except I really did. 2-5 days was nothing. I’d been living in the shit for years I could do another few days.
Stepping outside, everything looked the same. The air wasn’t purer or the sunlight any more sunlightier and I still had to fill up my tires at the Shell on Cahuenga. There’s something about being rich without actually having any appearance of being rich.
That secret alone is like having a bomb in your pocket. People treat you regular, they smile and make conversation but deep down you think...if I pulled this out I could kill you with it.
But when people do think you have money, the more of it they give you.
I rolled in the doors of the Hollywood like I always did. Lenny called me a bullshitter, Jackie barely even put her cigarette down and Jonie didn’t even bring me a drink because I didn’t actually have any money on the table. I didn’t even have money in my pocket. I’d spent it all on the Megamillions and I hadn’t eaten since perusing the halls for leftover room service the night before.
Then news hit. My face was on every TV in the place. “Local man wins 8 million dollar jackpot.”
I checked my phone to see if it was blowing up, then remembered I still hadn’t paid the bill in months. So I was good there.

April 9, 2022 – 11:11AM
If you’ve ever been on a casino floor you know that it’s never silent. But I swear to God if you were on the floor when that news hit, you could’ve heard the rats eating my Mini Eggs 20 miles away. Everyone’s eyes were trained on me. For a second I even felt all the security cams shift over in my direction.
I couldn’t stand being on the floor with nothing to play with so Lenny set me up with his guy who got me a little walking around money. Japanese guy who I met in a Burger King across the street. Weird dude. Not sure what his name was.
I didn’t wanna go too nuts so I just took out a small loan. 50k at 20 points. I thought about it for a second then realized I didn’t really give a shit about the interest. 10 grand to me in a week doesn’t mean nearly as much as 50 does now. It’s just value proposition. It would have been stupid NOT to take out the loan honestly.
Walking into the casino with 50 grand in my pocket and slamming it down on the table feels a lot like taking out your dick at an orgy only when your dick comes out it’s a 60 foot cigarette boat with flames painted on the side.
But then I learned what I remembered years ago. Losing money and gaining money at that point meant almost nothing.
So losing 2 grand a hand wasn’t such a big deal because I could be making 5 on the next. That’s why I needed a little more when I lost the full 50.
Another 100k or so at another 20 points should do the trick.
It didn’t take long to realize that both winning and losing money meant almost nothing to me. So I ventured out.
A tailored suit for me (ready in 2-3 days on a rush).
An iPad for James with all the bells and whistles.
6 dozen roses sent to Lenora’s house signed “your secret admirer.” just to fuck with Kelton.
A watch for me, Lenny and Jodie.
Some special cigar Jackie had always been eyeing.
New pairs of Nikes for all of us.
And a limousine to my dentist’s office.
I paid in cash for the cap replacement, they gave me some pills and told me not to mix them with alcohol but honestly I was a little distracted by the old molar cap sitting on the table. I had an idea.
“Are you gonna just throw that away?” I asked her.
By now I realized I didn’t have a phone to receive my winnings via email. So, I stopped a guy in the lobby and paid him 2 grand cash for his before popping a few pills and slugging some champagne in the limo.
There was barely enough time to sit back and relax. I had a lifetime of debt and yearning for shit to burn through.
We made it to the Mercedes dealership but the pain killers kicked in and I could barely feel my hands as they ran across the SLS’s mint green paint. Bummer.
Jenkins sauntered over asking if I was working today and all I remember saying was “I want it.” He scrunched his eyebrows in confusion, so I put the remaining cash I had down on the table and said it again. “I WANT IT.”
They ran my credit (which was dog shit. Didn’t matter) and I looked Jenkins in his fat little face again and said “I don’t give a fuck.” He sold it to me, financed at 25 percent interest. Then when he went to fetch my paperwork and keys I took a shit on his desk, shoved the molar cap and a $20 bill in it before using his jacket to wipe my ass. Felt right. Don’t really know why.
I had walked into the CA lottery offices at 9am to start the review process on my ticket’s authenticity.
By 11am, I was watching news break from the Hollywood Casino.
By 10pm I had accrued more debt than a small country.
I hadn’t received a dime from the lotto.
And I needed more walking around money.

April 10, 11, 12 – who the fuck knows what time
The next few days were a blur but there are a few things I’ll never forget.
Quitting my job.
Hiring the limo for the week.
Trying to shit after 3 days of having nothing but fast food, champagne and pain killers.
Fielding questions at the party from Kelton’s asshole friends who told me “lotto rich isn’t real rich.”
And the heat of my house burning to the ground as James and I stood there watching with a can of gas in our hands.
He didn’t even want the iPad.
The rhythms were sliding back. James had that smile plastered back in his face and even Lenora was happy to see me.

April 16, 7:35AM
“Dear Mr. Baxter. Congratulations! You’ve successfully matched FOUR of six winning numbers. Below please find a link to collect your winnings of $10,000.”
I read it over and over again. Over and over and over.
When I called the offices an nice woman on the phone informed me that due to a printing malfunction the ticket had appeared to show the number 8 when in fact it was a 6.
They even managed to maintain a sense of excitement. I mean why wouldn’t they? They think I just won $10,000. They had no idea I’d bought a car I couldn’t afford, burned my house down, taken a shit on my boss’ desk, maxed out 3 new credit cards and borrowed a inordinate amount of money from people at a borderline illegal interest rate.
The limo company took my ride away and with no home I’ve spent the last 2 days parked on the Pacific Coast Highway, sleeping in the brand new Mercedes I can’t afford, in a suit I shouldn’t have bought, showering in the YMCA down the street, and eating 2-day-old coconut shrimp.
All of a sudden I’m fucked again. But as I stare out at the Pacific, my phone dings. It’s an alert from the Chase banking app. My lotto winnings of $10,000 have just hit my account and the only question is...
Are the rhythms with me or not?

2023.03.29 04:22 doublestitch Latest research: fermented foods are probably better than probiotic supplements (you can DIY the fermented foods)

Dietary supplements are a billion dollar industry and one of the more popular types are probiotic supplements. It turns out those pricey probiotics may do more harm than good. Some frugal DIY may be better for both the wallet and for health.
Quoting from an article in today's Washington Post which summarizes current research. (The original is paywalled, so here are the chief points).
Studies show that taking probiotic supplements — for overall health or to counter the effects of antibiotics — can alter the composition of your microbiome and reduce the levels of microbial diversity in your gut, which is linked to a number of health problems.
The reason is probiotic supplements usually contain only a few strains of bacteria, so "taking concentrated doses of a few strains of bacteria can upset the balance in your gut, said Lorenzo Cohen, a professor and director of the Integrative Medicine Program at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston."
“You can inadvertently create a form of dysbiosis by having too much of a good thing,” he said. “You’re not only crowding out the bad things, but crowding out the other good things that you want in there to create high microbiome diversity.”
Exceptions indicate probiotic supplements do help people with a few specific ailments such as irritable bowel syndrome and inflammatory bowel disease.
That said,
Some doctors might recommend adding fermented foods to your diet instead of taking a supplement. “When I do recommend live microbes, it’s often in the context of fermented foods,” said Chris Damman, a gastroenterologist at the Digestive Health Center at the University of Washington Medical Center. “Fermented foods are like nature’s probiotics.”
One of the benefits of fermented foods is that they typically contain not just probiotics (the live microbes) but also prebiotics (the fiber the microbes eat) and postbiotics (the vitamins and other nutrients they produce). In a study published in the journal Cell, Sonnenburg and her colleagues at Stanford found that assigning people to eat fermented foods every day over a 10-week period lowered their levels of inflammation and increased their gut microbiome diversity.
The piece also recommends eating plenty of "vegetables, nuts, seeds, beans and whole grains."
For DIY'ing fermented foods, here's a guide to various options from kimchi to yogurt.

2023.03.29 03:57 DopeAssWeasel Identity Theft???

(Identity Theft/ Fraud) I am a 46yr old. Female. I a background check on a shady character that my BF went to school with 20 years ago. The website I used only offered monthly memberships with unlimited searches so of course I started doing back ground checks on everyone - myself, my parents, even the dog & of course my BF. That’s when things took a turn I never saw coming. He has so many aliases I can’t even wrap my mind around what’s actually going on. I mean male, female, all ages, all over the country. Shows he is married and owns property with the “spouse a woman” 20 miles from where we live but when I search the woman’s name she is actually a guy with the same last name as my BF. Even has a photo of a dude from a social website. Then he is also showing up as an 87 yrs old in Texas just filed bankruptcy, court documents with the 87 yr old alias name and his real name (as I know it) as the bankruptcy attorney. Then he has an alias 44yrs old in Colorado, 47 yrs old here in Ohio but also , 63 and married and ,34 female that also is showing on his timeline as what appears to be a “sibling” but definitely does not exist and never has. I’m talking at least 30 identities all ages, male and female, that link from one names report to another or start as a different name but then switch over to some form of his. Phone numbers, and addresses, and email addresses, bankruptcies, and Liens. All of which somehow circle into each other through a “relationship by blood family, marriage, or an address, phone #, social account. They all intersect in at least one small way. There is a LinkedIn account that show him as a head scientist at a local research facility with references with the job history starting way back before he was even actually born.
His father passed away this past fall and they had not spoken for about 10 years. He was an alcoholic and former disgraced BCI detective. The dad was in the military and the entire family was in Germany until my BF was 5 and I know my BF wasn’t issued a SSN until after they had returned to the states. (About 1986-87) So part of me wants to believe maybe the dad started this when my BF was still a child. However to many things are also making me believe my BF 100% is complicit if not the sole mastermind. Like the fact he mysteriously had “found” money in CO the other week that I was completely dumbfounded by how that was possible- he said an old paycheck perhaps. I was like well how the hell is that possible “have you ever lived in CO” well of course not he replies. Aren’t you silly. He would look at it later. I asked well how were you even notified about it? To which he did not quite remember and the subject changed. Well turns out someone using a form of his name did live in CO or pretended they did. I’m telling you the complexity of it just boggles my mind because I don’t understand how it works. How can he be a 89 yr old in Texas that just filed bankruptcy and a 53 yr old in Ohio that just took out a car loan and a mortgage- and woman and men of all ages everywhere. They all link. Yet none of it does in my head because I don’t understand how it’s possible to do this. Can someone please explain the basics of identity theft or fraud or whatever it is that’s happening. I need to have a grasp of what’s happened before I confront him so he doesn’t feed me a bunch of bull shit I can’t recognize as the shit it is. He is a master manipulator, prone to anger and violence. There has been physical abuse in the past that ended with a domestic violence charge. I don’t want to put myself at risk but we have been together 5 years. This is the man I love and my heart right now is pretty broken and mind is just spinning how it was possible to pull off that level of deception for 5 years. It’s not like I don’t know him. I mean half of the background report matches the entire backstory that he has told me over & over but the other half is so beyond fucked I just don’t understand how it’s even possible. Please explain how someone would do this kind of thing without ever actually leaving the state. At least for the last 5 years. I mean I can’t get a credit card limit raised without bloodwork and bank statements for the last 20 years and he has 30 people all over the us with accounts open or in arrears for all of them.

2023.03.29 01:44 AnalystOfData Remember, you don't need to play every hand you're dealt, and folding can often be the best decision in the long run.

In Texas hold'em, the decision to play a particular hand depends on a variety of factors, including your position, the size of the blinds, the number of players at the table, and the style of play of your opponents. It's usually best to fold unless you have a good read on your opponent or a specific strategy for playing weaker hands.

2023.03.29 00:13 anonymouspandabears Why is Texas on a downward turn politically?

I've heard a lot about people moving away and not wanting to be there anymore because it's "slowly going down" and "their days are numbered" or "Texas is alright now, but they're not gonna be okay in the coming years"
I guess the vague sentiments have left me a bit confused and not understanding their political situation
