2023.06.08 11:12 Zen242 What could be a valid and supportable reason for the secrecy presuming this is legit?

Just curious what people thought about what possible reason the 'gatekeepers' of the program - valid or unsupportable - for wanting to keep the backengineering program secret (presuming it's a real, factual program investigating real technology not made by human hands). Do we go with just financial? Concerns that they don't have enough answers? Concerns that people will freak out if they realise they cannot be protected? Or something really more obscure like Tom Delonge claiming the 'others' aren't aware we have their craft and we don't want them to know or that maybe mass belief somehow empowers some dangerous intelligence. Also why would a super intelligent other leave craft for only select people in positions of power to find? Why would they avoid overt arrival that is undeniable? Why not cure a free diseases rather than give military nuts new tech?

He refused to marry her, but 5 yrs later he was shocked when she returned as the richest woman in the country.

Episode 1. I Don’t Want You To Be Happy
It was 10 p.m. and the moonlight was dazzling. Room 101, on the top floor of Hotel Waverick Seattle, was pitch black, and there was the faint sound of breathing.
Natalie Davidson opened her eyes, but the world before her was so muddled that she couldn't see clearly. Her body felt strange as if it had caught fire and she was burning alive. Someone seemed to be lying on top of her, pressing down, but no matter how much she struggled to push him away, he remained motionless.
Her mind was a mess and she couldn't think straight. She only vaguely remembered that the previous night she had welcomed her fiancé back from his travels abroad, and then because she was so happy and drunk, she had been brought to her stepsister's room to rest. She hadn’t expected to find this when she woke up.
"Who are yo–" Natalie's voice was cut off by a heavy gasp from the man, and his grip on her body got tighter and tighter. She didn't have the strength to push him away. "Let me go …"
She had never felt like this before. A wave of lust washed over her, and she could not help but respond to him. Her body was exceptionally hot and she frowned. Something wasn't right. The feeling of lust faded and she suddenly felt terrified, but she couldn't stop the man. As he pushed into her, she felt herself losing consciousness until finally she couldn't stay awake any longer and passed out.
Outside, the sky was dark. Around three in the morning, the cell phone on the bedside table vibrated violently. With a frown, the man woke up from his sleep. His gaze slid across the messy bedsheets and then over to Natalie, who was covered only by a thin blanket. His expression immediately darkened. He picked up the phone and slammed it down. The hostility in his eyes was clear. These people had actually dared to drug him. They must have gotten tired of living.
Steadily, he got up, threw back the covers, and went to take a shower in the bathroom. Afterward, without a trace of hesitation, he turned and left the room, as if the person on the bed was just an object he didn't need to pay attention to.
When Natalie woke up, it was morning.
The moment she opened her eyes, she felt pain. She had a splitting headache and her entire body was extremely sore as if it had been beaten. She sat motionless at the head of the bed. The events of the previous night flashed through her mind like a movie, making her tremble with despair. The man who had assaulted her was obviously not her fiancé, Nick. How could she have lost her virginity under such strange circumstances?
What should she do?
What on earth should she do?
She hurriedly picked up her clothes from the floor and put them on. She wanted to go home quickly and wash up; she couldn’t bear to stay in this room even a second longer. But the moment she opened the door, she saw Nick, who was standing outside with a shocked face, alongside her stepsister Sheryl and her father Tom, who both looked furious.
Natalie didn't know how to explain and barely got a grip on her thoughts before she was slapped in the face by her father. The mess in the room had not been cleaned up and the evidence of what had happened there was obvious.
"Look at what you’ve done! You’ve cheated on your fiancé, you’ve embarrassed me, you’ve embarrassed the whole family! How could I have raised a daughter like you?"
Nick gripped Tom’s hand tightly and frowned as he looked at her face. "Natalie, how could you do this?"
"No, no." She shook her head with all her might, trying to clasp his hand, afraid that he would leave. “I was drunk last night. I only came back to the room to rest.” She suddenly looked at Sheryl, who was standing in front of her with wide eyes. “You did this, didn’t you? You were the one who brought me back to the hotel last night, to this room. Why did you do this to me?"
When Sheryl heard this, she looked wrong. "I don't understand what you're saying. I did no such thing."
"You didn't?" Natalie growled as her anger reached its peak. "Then how did I end up in someone else's room? Why would that man–"
"Enough!" Nick interrupted her with a loud shout as if he didn't want to hear any more. "You want to blame someone else for what you've done?" He looked at her coldly. "I only left for six months and you're already this desperate. Did you really have to climb into someone else's bed?!"
Natalie hugged her arm in panic as tears rolled down her cheeks and dripped onto the carpet. She couldn’t believe Nick was saying these things. They had been together for three years and were about to get married.
"Nick," she said in a low voice, practically begging as she looked at the resolute man in front of her. "Please believe me …"
"Don't say any more, just listening to you disgusts me." With a look of pure disdain, he turned around and strode off down the corridor. "The engagement’s off. I don't want to see you again."
His words were like a sharp knife stabbing straight into her heart. Despair slowly spread through her and was on the verge of spilling out. It was so painful that she could no longer breathe.
She staggered after him, but her father grabbed her by the arm and shoved her to the floor.
“Natalie, you’re no longer part of this family. From this day on, you’re not my daughter!”
She was stunned. After they left, her head was in shambles; she didn't even know how she made it home, but by the time she did her belongings were already packed and left by the door. Tom had even booked a plane ticket for her, and he told her to pick up her stuff and leave the country immediately.
"Natalie, are you alright?"
She was in a daze as she lowered her head to pick up her things. Sheryl walked down the steps at a leisurely pace. When Natalie ignored her, she didn't get angry. Instead, she laughed. "Do you really want to know how you ended up in that room? Let me tell you. You were right, I put you there. I did it because I want to marry Nick and I can't stand the thought of you being happy with him."

Episode 2. Exile
Natalie raised her head and bit her lip. She was so angry that she couldn't utter a single word. Her whole body was trembling with fury. She couldn't understand why Sheryl would ruin her life like this.
"Hmm” Sheryl smiled, “So what if you’re angry?" Sheryl played with her curly hair and sneered. "Nick doesn't believe you. Your father doesn't believe you either. You can go abroad and live on your own."
Natalie was furious. "Why are you doing this to me? Why are you running my life? Why"
She rushed forward hysterically and wrapped her hands around Sheryl’s neck, but Sheryl didn't resist. She only blinked pitifully at her. "Sister, don't hurt me … Last night really wasn't my fault … What are you doing?"
Hearing the commotion, Tom rushed out, looking so angry that the veins on his neck stood out. He raised his hand and pushed Natalie to the ground. "Are you crazy? Are you trying to kill your sister?"
Natalie fell to the ice-cold sidewalk, where she remained. Unable to bear the pain any longer, she was on the verge of tears. She thought of her mother and her childhood, but no matter how hard she wished, she could never return to that time.
Rosemary, her stepmother, came up behind her. When she saw the marks on her daughter's neck, she was so angry – just like her husband – that she raised her hand and slapped Natalie.
"You uneducated brat! You're just the same as your mother! You might as well die!"
The more she slapped, the harder each slap became. Tom stood beside her, but he only seemed to be concerned about Sheryl's injuries. As the attack went on, Natalie’s vision grew blurry from the blows, but all she could feel was the coldness in her heart as if all warmth had left it.
At that time, in his office at the Clair Group, Bryce was looking at his assistant with a malicious expression.
"What's going on?" His face was so gloomy that his gaze could bore holes through a person. "How is the investigation going?"
His assistant was sweating under his gaze, but he swallowed and told him the news. "It's Evan Wilson."
Bryce knew of Evan. A while ago, he had worked with the Clair Group on a project and had taken many kickbacks from it. Bryce didn't like his way of handling things, so he had sent his men to destroy the Wilson family. Right now, the Wilsons were on the verge of bankruptcy and collapse.
"Evan bribed the hotel's waiter and drugged you. He probably wanted to use this to …" The assistant's voice trailed off until he was no longer breathing.
The situation was clear now: Evan was behind all of this. Bryce had never thought that something would go wrong and that he would have to completely deviate from his original plan.
"I checked, Evan booked a room in the hotel last night." The assistant looked up at him hesitantly, then looked down again. "But you didn't use it …"
Bryce's expression suddenly changed and he asked in a low voice, "What do you mean?"
The assistant was confused. He could only look at his face and repeat hesitantly, "You didn't use the room yesterday."
If he didn't go into his room, then who was the woman who had been lying on his bed? In his mind, he saw broken images of her flushed cheeks and her body writhing beneath him, but what he remembered clearest were those cries of grief and heart-breaking pain. He suddenly remembered the crimson spots on the sheets that he had noticed before he left — the woman had been a virgin.
Bryce's brows knit together. He told his assistant in a deep voice, "Go check the identity of the woman who was in my room immediately."
He wanted to know where she had come from.
The assistant immediately hurried off to do as he had been told. But no matter how fast he moved, he wouldn’t be able to find any useful information. The hotel’s surveillance tapes had already been wiped by Sheryl. How could she possibly leave behind evidence that would show that she had set Natalie up? Naturally, she had had to cover her tracks. After doing this, she continued to pretend that she was innocent, and gloated as she watched Natalie get kicked out of her house in a sorry state.
Natalie didn't even stay a night before she was packed off and sent out of the country. She lugged her heavy luggage onto the plane. She had been exiled without knowing when she could return.

Episode 3. You’re My Daddy
Five years later, Natalie stood in the first-class lounge at Heathrow Airport, staring at the two tickets in her hands, unable to focus. She had been in England for five years and in all that time she hadn't made even one phone call to her family. Her father treated her like she was dead and as if he couldn't care less about it. If it wasn't for Sheryl and Nick’s engagement, he might not even have remembered she existed.
Her heart had no attachment to the place she had been separated from for years. All her feelings had been erased on the day she was thrown out. She didn't want to go back and see the people who had hurt her, but she couldn't stand listening to her father's threats on the phone. If she did not do what he said, he would not let her grandmother live peacefully, he could even hurt her. Her grandmother was the closest person in the world to her. She had wanted to bring her to England to spend the rest of her life there, but she couldn't sway the old lady from her desire to be in the country where her husband and daughter had lived. Natalie had no choice but to leave her where she was. If it wasn't for her grandmother, she probably wouldn't go back for the rest of her life, but she couldn't afford to lose her to her father’s anger.
"Mommy, Mommy."
Lost in her thoughts, she suddenly heard a lovely, gentle voice beside her. She looked down and saw a four-year-old boy lightly tugging at the corner of her jumper. He told her in a serious tone, "Stop daydreaming. The plane is about to take off."
Only then did she recover her wits. The anger in her eyes gradually softened as she smiled and picked up the child. "Alright then, let's go to the gate."
At the same time, on the other side of the first-class lounge, a tall man in a suit with two burly bodyguards standing behind him strode towards the gate with a cold expression.
Natalie had bought first-class tickets. In the past few years, she had suffered a lot from feeling rootless in a foreign country, and she had developed many issues. She had bad insomnia and headaches, and she was afraid of loud noises. The moment she got on the plane, she covered her eyes with a blanket to try to fall asleep, but first, she told Liam to be good and not run around.
Liam was her most precious treasure. He was very well behaved. He sat on his seat as he was told and played with the toy she had bought him, occasionally stealing glances at her.
Natalie put her head against the window. He soon noticed that she did not look well.
"Mommy." He leaned across and looked at her. Seeing that she was frowning, he asked worriedly, "Are you not feeling well?"
Natalie coughed twice due to an itch in her throat. With a hint of weakness in her voice, she answered, "I'm fine …" She looked at the child and forced a smile. "I'm just a little thirsty."
Without waiting for her to say anything, Liam jumped out of his seat and hurried off excitedly to get her some water. She didn't know who he took after. He was only four years old, but he was as sensible as a small adult, and he could even take care of her.
Liam came running back with a glass of water. As he reached their seats, he bumped into a man who had just stepped into the plane. The glass in his hand wobbled and the water spilled from it, wetting the man’s shoes and the legs of his pants.
Bryce lowered his head and looked at the water stains on his clothes. He frowned in displeasure. "What are you doing? Don't you know to watch where you're going?"
"I'm sorry." Liam held the cup and apologized repeatedly. But when he raised his head and looked at the man, he was immediately stunned, "I …"
Liam had once finally mustered the courage to ask his mother about his father. Natalie was taken aback and stood speechless for a moment before she randomly showed the young boy a picture of a handsome man and told him that this was him.
Looking at Bryce, Liam instantly somehow recalled the same picture, and realized that the two men resembled each other to almost a fault! Bryce was a well-built man, who possessed a muscular demeanor and suave gait. His pose and grace made the young boy quiver. The more he looked at Bryce, the more he felt that the man in front of him fit his image of his father from the picture. He stood quiet for two seconds, before hurling himself at Bryce’s long leg and then shouted, "Daddy!"
The two bodyguards behind Bryce were completely taken aback by the scene unfolding in front of them. They had been with Bryce for a long time, but this was the first time they’d seen someone act so affectionately with him, let alone someone so young.
Bryce's expression instantly turned ugly. He reached out his hand to push away the little arms that were wrapped around him and said coldly, "Don't randomly call people your father. I'm not your father."
He had known many women who had claimed to be pregnant with his child, but this was the first time he had ever seen such a clever and affectionate 'son'.
Liam stared at his face and answered with certainty, "You are my daddy. Why did you abandon me and Mommy?"
The more he spoke, the more wronged he felt. He pouted his small mouth and put on a pitiful expression. When the passengers beside them heard this, they immediately looked over in curiosity.
Natalie couldn’t sleep through the commotion. She opened her eyes and looked in the direction of the noise, only to find her son standing in the middle of the aisle, holding onto the leg of an unfamiliar man.
"Sorry, sorry." She quickly got up. Embarrassed, she reached out to take the child's hand. "He must have made a mistake. Liam, let go of him."
Her son had always been sensible and listened to her over anyone else, but today she didn't know what was going on. No matter how much she tried to persuade him, Liam continued to hold onto the leg of that strange man's pants. He bit his lips in frustration and refused to let go.
Bryce was a cold person, but when he looked at the child's pitiful expression, he felt a bit moved. He frowned and said to Natalie, "Why did you become a mother? If you couldn’t give him a complete family, it would have been better not to have him at all."

2023.06.08 11:11 concernedaboutheart 30M "Probable left atrial abnormality" on ECG

Background: 30 y/o white male, 165 lbs, 6'2", currently have depression, no currently medication, drink a few times per year, non smoker and no drug use. Primary complaint: concern about ECG
I was poking around in my patient records recently and noticed that the pre-surgery ECG from an elective nasal septum repair in 2017 was available (see link). I was signed off by a cardiologist with the statement "probable left atrial abnormality". I did not even know about this until today, and nothing was ever said by my PCP who had access to the record (I don’t know if he saw it though). (ECG image: https://ibb.co/LdXr8Zp)
I was at a different hospital for a kidney stone in early 2022, and I don’t have an image of the ECG, but the report (see below) noted that I had an "incomplete right bundle branch block". Once again, no one said anything until I saw it in my record. I was admitted inpatient for the kidney stone and had mild hypokalemia during my stay.
My only known cardiac family history is that my maternal grandmother had a heart attack in her 60s, had a pacemaker placed about 20 years after the heart attack, and died at 90 of CHF, CAD, and atrial fibrillation.
I’ve always felt like I get worn out easily, but I didn’t think much of it. What does all of this mean? Should I see a cardiologist?
2022 ECG:
“Vent. Rate : 081 BPM Atrial Rate : 081 BPM
P-R Int : 168 ms QRS Dur : 098 ms
QT Int : 394 ms P-R-T Axes : 077 082 064 degrees
QTc Int : 457 ms
Normal sinus rhythm
Incomplete right bundle branch block
Borderline ECG”

2023.06.08 11:10 Nickpapado Some big streamers deserve Twitch

It's insane what Twitch wanted to do and it's even more insane that some streamers consider it a W that twitch (kinda) stopped from enforcing those rules .
Almost all streamers threatened to leave the website. It's not a "W" from Twitch that they decided to not steal money from streamers. The latest tweet from Twitch was a matter of course. Now we just simply know that Twitch doesn't care about the streamers at all, and they are willing to throw them down a cliff instead of working with them on anything.
You can see on the comments of the latest tweet from Twitch that all OTK streamers considered what Twitch did a good thing which is baffling in my mind when almost everybody else had the same response as Charlie.

2023.06.08 11:09 CalendarNo8521 I want it work but I think it's slowly dying.

I (35M) have been married to my wife (30F) for 6 years, together for 10. We haven't had sex in 4 years, and I basically have had to beg for any kind of physical touch for the last 2 years. We don't sleep in the same bed, have vastly different schedules, and she brushes off any major conversations and my concerns about our marriage and intimacy. I want to make it work but I don't think she notices that I've been absolutely starved of ANY physical or sexual attention, because she's so wrapped up in her own issues. She does suffer from moderate to severe depression and it's been honestly worse for her since WFH was a thing but she'd never admit it. I have suggested couples therapy in the past and she rebukes me pretty forcefully that we don't have any problems/therapy doesn't do anything/it's a waste of money. Neither of us leave the house but I genuinely only see her maybe 20 minutes a day, and we talk for maybe 15.
I can however pinpoint three major events that do/have had a major impact on her mental health and her lack of desire to be intimate:
1) I'm sure she either cheated on me or got raped by one of her friends at one point in '19, and I think it's the latter. After the incident in question she pretty much flipped a switch and stopped all sexual intimacy, which I believe to be PTSD, she quite frankly turned me down more than 50 times until we did it ONCE, about two months after the event, and haven't had sex since. She's never told me anything, never filed a report, the usual PTSD signs of rape.
2) WFH. She has since moved into our guest room and lives her entire life in a 9x13 room that she only leaves to pee and get drinks. She sleeps, eats, works, games (we're both avid PC gamers), everything in that room. It's gotten to a point as well, that she can't/won't really function so the garbage is just piling up around her in there.
3) I finally relented after hearing every few weeks up to the 8 year mark on the idea of swinging with our ONE partner. Not one at a time, one, partner to pursue any sexual interests or whatnot. She's only had sex with 2 people, and I'm one of them (not counting the assumed rape above.) We had rules when I relented, she followed the rules. It's been 2 years, I haven't 'used my coupon' so to speak, but after her first experience with the guy she decided she wanted to do that with, he basically got in her pants and said 'fuck off.' That's not my problem I guess, maybe she should've vetted the one partner better. This was 2 years ago though, and she won't even so much as touch me now. She touched my leg at the restaurant while eating dinner recently - that was the most she'd willing touched me since probably the beginning of 2022.
tl;dr Wife has completely shut down any form of intimacy or physicality. I want it to work, but she refuses to have conversation, doesn't believe in therapy. I'm lonely, miserable, and just want to feel fucking loved but I'm not sure if it's her depression, being a victim of rape and pushing me away, or if she's just checked out and doesn't want to be alone but fuck my feelings on the matter. I basically live with a super awesome roommate who I tell 'I love you' to, but I don't know how to get her to engage with life again. She's amazing in literally every way except being my wife, being intimate, and showing me she cares.

2023.06.08 11:08 riftblue_ I dont want to be friends with my best friend after this school year

this feels like a long time coming, but something that i havent been vocal with at all.
me (16f) and my best friend- lets call her em (16f) have been friends for about 2 years when i moved schools to my current school. she took me under her wing into a friend group that in all fairness i did not like. they ignored me all the time and i only had em as a friend. eventually i left the group and sat with my brother for a bit with em had full knowledge about but hadnt said anything (my brother is 3 years older than me)
the next 2 school years were me and my new friend group with em joining sometimes as she had regular friend issues, twice with her boyfriend no one had liked. in october 2022 my friend group fell apart with just teenage girl arguments-splitting the friend group into 2.
at this point em was not in a friend group and i invited her to ours as unlike her i cant let someone i know sit by themself without friends.
so now this takes us to the current day. in england you go to college/sixth form to do alevels. 2 of my friends are going to college and me and em are staying in my schools sixth form. ems been bombarding me about being friends for all of sixth form as none of her friends are staying but me. but this is where the problem lies.
ems always been a character. she plays jokes and oversteps all the time and mainly invades your privacy. i found out recently she has stalked all of my friends’ social medias to find old/bad photos of me and showed it to my friend group. she has also posted it to her finsta and blocked me from seeing it and the same with her main instagram (the photo wasnt posted on there) so clearly most trust i have with her is none existent as she frequently crosses boundaries.
i have another friend group that i hang out with too, im not crazy close with them but they sit with us regularly and i hang out with them outside of school. theyre all going to sixth form and asked if i wanted to sit with them next year. i fully believe i dont want to make promises or keep to my acceptance and not make friends next year, as that would be pointless. em has kind if caught onto the fact that i might be in their friend group next year and has vocalised it to my friend group.
she has repeatedly said things like ‘you arent going to be friends with me next year?’ to get under my skin when i tell her she should have other friends that arent me, since every time i havent been in her friend group she has ignored me and not spoken to me for months.
this is where i need some advice, she is just too much for me to spend all of the next few years with and i dont want to get dragged into some friend group i dont want to be in (me and em have differing opinions when it comes to friend groups, she likes loud people and i definitely do not) and also one of my best guy friends offered me to be with him next year too saying ‘ill always have him’ which was sweet after i told him all of this.
i just dont want to be with her next year but i dont want to leave her by herself as i have morals. what should i do?

2023.06.08 11:08 ermn1 Dentist - no reasonable adjustments

Not sure if this is the right place but just wanted to see if anybody had any advice before I complain and make my next dentist app super awkward.
Just walked an hour to my dentist with my 6 week old daughter in her pram. Got there and sat in the downstairs waiting room as told by receptionist.
After 5/10 minutes, I was shouted and told I'm upstairs. I said I can't I've got the baby in the trolley... I was told 'the girls on reception will mind her' absolutely no chance! I told them I am not leaving my 6 week old child with a stranger and I was told then I will have to reschedule for another time as no other dentist has a slot for me and for when 'somebody can have the baby' - what if nobody can have 'the baby'?
I asked what would happen if I were in a wheelchair, and I was told 'it would be on your file so we would already know' - well not necessarily, if I'd become an amputee in the last 12 months I wouldn't ring the dentist to let them know.
I'm just SO annoyed as we all know how hard it is to get an NHS dental app, and she didn't even walk me to the desk to rebook me! She just walked back into a room!
Surely they need to make reasonable adjustments - I honestly feel as though I've been palmed off because I have a baby, would it be laughable to even maybe consider it discrimination?
I don't want to go in all guns blazing if I'm maybe just a little hot headed because it's so fresh and my legs are so tired from the 2 hour walk with a crying baby
I'm in England if it makes any difference

2023.06.08 11:08 aplacelikehome The LPL Quasi-Strike, a Brief Story

With all the recent chatters about the goingons in the LCS, it brings me to attention that something similar happened with the LPL several years back. Did you know that the LPL was once on the verge of a shutdown?
A former WE executive friend wrote a blurb on Weibo, a leading Chinese platform. (https://m.weibo.cn/status/4910051925688512?wm=3333_2001&from=10D5193010&sourcetype=weixin&s_trans=1777987025_4910051925688512&s_channel=4&jumpfrom=weibocom). Be mindful that some opinions expressed in the blurb are strong, but I don’t necessarily share them. (I’m just the messenger!) I’ve done a rough translation here:
In 2017, the LPL faced a critical moment known as the “quasi-strike,” where clubs strategically chose Chinese New Year to challenge the status quo. This pivotal event would eventually propel the LPL to greater heights.
During those crucial times, TJSports (Tencent’s esports division) didn’t exist, and I had just entered the industry. As an investor in a team, I had the privilege of attending the “boss conference.”
The conference took place in Shanghai’s Lujiazui’s Super Brand Mall, with players competing on the stage while club owners convened in the adjacent conference room. Being a new person in the scene, I was unaware what the meeting was about at first. However, I soon realized it was a “collective bargaining” agreement of sorts. If negotiations failed, all clubs would face suspension after the Spring Festival.
At that time, the Chinese esports industry was in a primitive and chaotic state, with an influx of speculative investments. Wealthy club owners acquired star players, successful clubs secured sponsorships and revenue, and player salaries skyrocketed. Meanwhile, struggling clubs faced the challenge of survival.
A few visionary club owners championed two crucial demands: a fair share of sponsorship and copyright revenue for all clubs and the elimination of promotion and relegation.
These demands paved the path for professionalizing the LPL as a true sports league. Revenue sharing ensured clubs could navigate economic fluctuations, while the removal of promotion and relegation instilled investor confidence, preventing seats from being jeopardized by short-term performance fluctuations.
This landmark negotiation stands as a defining moment in the history of Chinese gaming. Surprisingly, a representative from the official side showed support, and after a brief deliberation, an agreement was reached. China’s League of Legends professional league became the world’s first regional tournament to implement such alliances. This representative’s sacrifice of economic benefits fostered a collaborative environment, no longer allowing unilateral decision-making.
The cancellation of LPL’s promotion sparked debates. Some believed it would hinder competitiveness, but reflecting on traditional sports systems, the English Premier League has promotion and relegation while the NBA does not. After extensive discussions, most esports professionals agree that the NBA model maximizes benefits for leagues, clubs, and players.
Examining the LCS strike, reports revealed financial crises and seat sales among numerous teams, partly caused by excessive capital market financing and neglecting a sustainable business model. Despite comparable salaries to their Chinese and Korean counterparts, LCS players train less intensely. This distorted model, where player interests take precedence over league and club health, is unsustainable and may lead to dire consequences.
The LCS player’s guild fails to recognize that diminishing others’ success does not enhance their own, and hindering others’ progress does not advance their own. As someone involved in players’ advocacy, I envy the LCS for having a players’ union. The lack of such support in the LPL leaves players with limited assistance in resolving unpaid wages and unfair treatment. Balancing both player and club perspectives has posed challenges, but lessons learned from industry leaders who prioritize the industry’s progress guide my stance.
The LCS’s journey away from unilateralism serves as a valuable lesson. With the presence of selfless individuals devoted to China’s gaming industry, I firmly believe that the future holds abundant opportunities for growth and collaboration. Spring brings the promise of blossoming success.
Thus ends the translation. All I can say is I wish for the best for the LCS. But there’s some perspective, enjoy!

2023.06.08 11:08 PennyFromPA Perforated and deviated septum.

I (F, 35, USA) have a perforated septum at the bottom of my nostrils that is about half an inch (17 mm to be exact) and I also have a severe deviated septum.
At this time the septum is so bad that it has broken thru the skin in my nostril. It causes extreme pain in my nostril, face, mouth, and gums. The night time is when it’s the absolute worse and I cannot sleep because of it.
What do I do? How can I relieve this pain and sleep?
A new development is even if I have to lightly blow my nose I can feel the cartilage push out of my skin more and flail. It’s extremely uncomfortable. (I try not to blow my nose).
I constantly bleed out of the bottom of this nostril where the problem is.
A few things to note:
I’ve been seeing an ENT since last May. (I’m not satisfied with my care at this point so leaving them but the soonest appt I can get for anyone in my area is July). I am also trying to see how I can speed this up to get to a plastic surgeon for a rhinoplasty to fix the septum and hole.
I had a nasal button inserted during surgery but the perforation is so big and low that it has come out twice now. It also causes other discomfort in my nose and I still have to mouth breathe because the deviated side of my nose is so tight that the button blocks any type of airflow (which is minimal already with how small the nostril is already on that side).
I had sinus surgery in March but the dr: didn’t fix the septum.
I do saline nasal rinses multiple times a day. I also use saline nose spray.
I have a prescription antibiotic ointment I use a lot.
I do not put drugs in my nose.
I have tried to use numbing creams on my nose on top of all these things and over the counter pain relievers but nothing touches this pain especially at night when it’s the worse and in bed.
I try to use ice packs and heat to try and help.
I’m writing this in bed and my face hurts so bad I think think it’s affecting my vision a little and is blurry: but I’m also super exhausted.

2023.06.08 11:08 PreviousRepair6563 Neomuna Vex Investigation

Since Osiris was too occupied to study Vex during Lightfall Campaign, I decided to investigate their behaviour on Neomuna. Here is something I assume to be important regarding Vex.
Mission: Under siege
Nimbus - "Looks like all the commotion made the Vex crawl out of their pesky little hidey holes around the city." Osiris - "That's the least of our concerns right now. Push forward, Guardian." Here, we are notified of the Vex presence by Nimbus. We can deduce that Vex was present on Neomuna before the invasion and also had a reaction against the invasion. In the very next area after this exchange, we see Vex fighting against the Shadow Legion in the ZEPHYR CONCOURSE, why? Is there any "object of interest" for Vex at that location? Perhaps, the environmental storytelling. On the other hand, we have Osiris "The Vex Guy" telling us to ignore Vex. Interesting... 
Mission: Breakneck
Ghost - "Rohan, I think we're still fuzzy here. What exactly is the CloudArk?" Rohan - "It's our city's network. our infrastructure, our people, our defences... everything depends on it." Nimbus - "And what we're doing now is stopping the Vex from siphoning energy from the CloudArk's reactor." Ghost - "Just so we're clear-if the CloudArk is lost, what does that mean for Neomuni?" Nimbus - "All our citizens have uploaded their consciousness into the CloudArk. No CloudArk means lights out for everyone in Neomuna" Ghost - "Hold on... these Vex are short-circuiting voluntarily." Rohan - "We haven't observed this kind of behaviour before. Hope you're taking note, Nimbus." (most likely a 4th wall break) Nimbus - "Of the headless robot dance? Yeah, I've seen it before. It's gotta be a way for them to create a gateway to the CloudArk. Or... express themselves... emotionally? I dunno; who can say, honestly?"  Ghost - "It's escaping! Wait... why did it leave?" Nimbus - "Weird. Something's off. Keep going, but... keep an eye out."  Ghost - "And that does it. How's it looking, Rohan?" Rohan - "Hmm. Something's still siphoning Power. Look around for any remaining Vex influence."  Ghost - "Something feels off here. That was a little too easy." This mission is a major entry for our investigation. We are given a rough idea of what CloudArk is, which is the focus of Vex. According to Nimbus, Vex is siphoning power from CloudArk. But we have known Vex for a long time to know that they don't need to rely on power from non-Vex objects to run operations. Which begs the question, if not power, then what? Information? We can also conclude that Vex has no intention of destroying CloudArk. Which is also interesting... Nimbus also says that All the citizens have uploaded their consciousness into CloudArk. Does that mean during this mission Vex was also connected to the consciousness of the citizens of Neomuna? That may explain their Voluntarily Short-circuiting. Is Vex trying to study or understand Neomuni? They are called 'Consumed Goblin'. Consumed by CloudArk? After Rohan's 4th wall break, Nimbus assumes Vex are trying to create a gateway to the CloudArk, or expressing themselves emotionally. Again this suggests they are trying to connect by either CloudArk or emotionally. Boss's Name is CALIXTE(Most Beautiful), SYSTEM WARD FINALITY(Final protector of the system?) Again suggesting that Vex are not here to destroy. But are protecting the System. Which system? CloudArk? This may be big if it is true. The boss also runs away which was given importance by Ghost. After defeating the said boss, Ghost describes it to be a little too easy. Running and being east to defeat suggests that the boss is not a combat frame, but still a warden. Then warden of what? another non-combat place where the word Warden is used is for Childcare. Did we just defeat a Beautiful Vex Childcare Warden? Shit!! 
I would have continued this but a lot of theories are being generated in my mind which may influence my upcoming investigations. so I must take a break and let it sink in.
Theories like Vex are defending CloudArk and the people of Neomuna along with it. It may open a path to a possible alliance with Vex in future.

Edit: I messed up the structure. feel free to correct me.

2023.06.08 11:07 jenhairvietnam Deep conditioner for hair extensions

Trust me, one of the best ways to keep your extensions looking their best is to use a deep conditioner. There are several key characteristics that you should look for:
Moisturizing: Hair extensions don’t receive natural oils from the scalp like your natural hair, so they can become dry and brittle over time. A good deep conditioner should be moisturizing and hydrating to keep your extensions soft and supple.
Nourishing: A good deep conditioner should contain nourishing ingredients such as proteins, vitamins, and minerals that can help to strengthen and repair your extensions.
Sulfate-free: Sulfates are harsh detergents that can strip the hair of its natural oils and cause damage to hair extensions. Look for a deep conditioner that is sulfate-free to prevent further damage and keep your extensions healthy.
Easy to rinse out: Some deep conditioners can be difficult to rinse out completely, leaving behind a residue that can weigh down your extensions and make them look greasy. Look for a hair mask that is easy to rinse out and won’t leave any residue behind.
Safe for color-treated hair: Look for a hair mask that is specifically formulated for color-treated hair or is labeled as safe for use on colored hair.
By choosing a deep conditioner for hair extensions that meets these criteria, you can help to keep your extensions looking and feeling their best.
"If you are a hair extension enthusiast, then you know that there is nothing quite like the feeling of having long, flowing locks that perfectly complement your style. However, maintaining healthy hair extensions can be a challenge, especially when it comes to deep conditioning.

I have a guy friend who is dealing a lot in his personal life, like father being irresponsible and mentally abusive to his mother, brother doesn't care about his mother's health, he lives in different city from his family, not able to focus on work and studies, doesn't get to eat proper food daily and last but not the least possibility of not getting married to the love of his life. I know it's too much and I'm worried about him. He's an introvert doesn't open up but he's very comfortable with me and tells me everything. We have been friends for years.
Now my main concern here is he yesterday said I feel alone and helpless, he wants to leave everything and go something far from all this. I'm really really worried. What are all the things I can do or tell him that'll make him feel less lonely and more motivated.

Ticket prices for Inter Miami matches skyrocketed in the span of just a few hours Wednesday following reports that soccer legend Lionel Messi will leave Paris Saint-Germain for MLS—which he later confirmed—with the cheapest available tickets on the secondary market jumping more than 1,000% for Messi’s first matches with the club. The cheapest ticket for Inter Miami’s Leagues Cup match against Mexico City’s Cruz Azul on July 21—reported to be Messi’s first match with the club—jumped from $29 to $459, according to TickPick, following reports Wednesday morning that the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner will join David Beckham’s Inter Miami (Messi confirmed the reports in an interview with Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo). Miami’s match against reigning MLS champion Los Angeles FC on September 3 also soared from $81 for the cheapest ticket to $599 in the immediate hours after multiple outlets reported the world’s second-highest-paid athlete is headed to Miami, following speculation he could rejoin his former club Barcelona or take a blockbuster deal to join the Saudi club Al-Hilal. Last month, Paris Saint-Germain issued Messi a two-week suspension after he took a promotional trip to Saudi Arabia without notifying the club—Messi later apologized for the suspension, saying he thought he had an off-day and couldn’t cancel his planned trip to Saudi Arabia, where he serves as an official “Tourism Ambassador.” Messi had also been rumored to rejoin Barcelona, where he played his first 17 seasons before joining PSG in 2021, and his father Jorge Messi—acting as his manager—met with team officials this week.

2023.06.08 11:06 lentils234 Unregulated tourist influx: Kashmir dreads the final straw that will break the Himalayas’ back

Tourism is a small but important part of Kashmir’s economy. However, in the name of tourism, the government should not put the fragile and already-strained natural resources and public infrastructure in the region under even more pressure, lest it lead to a complete destruction of the beautiful valley, which is home to 7 million people.
Four years after India made Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) its youngest Union territory, the region is expected to receive around 2 crore (20 million) tourists this year. This was revealed by the lieutenant governor of the Union territory Manoj Sinha in April while laying the foundation stone of a medical college in the outskirts of Srinagar.
Sinha said that the number of tourists J&K is set to receive during this year would break all previous records of tourist influx into Kashmir.
Will the Union territory, especially the ecologically fragile Kashmir valley, be able to accommodate such a huge number of tourists?
What about the amount of waste 2 crore tourists will generate? Does the Union territory have the infrastructure to treat this waste scientifically, considering that the number of tourists visiting is more than twice the population of the region?
Do we have scientific waste management systems in place in Srinagar and other tourist places of J&K?
In this article I will be explaining all this with facts and figures.
Shrinking farmlands and tourism
Tourists who visit Kashmir are fascinated by the natural beauty while they move around on the Jammu–Srinagar highway (National Highway 44). They are often seen taking pictures in the saffron fields of Pampore or with the mustard flowers elsewhere in the valley (which bloom in abundance around the spring season— March to April).
Does the Union territory have the infrastructure to treat this waste scientifically, considering that the number of tourists visiting is more than twice the population of the region?
When tourists visit Pahalgam, they take selfies near the apple trees that dot the landscape on the way to this beautiful tourist resort.
Imagine what will happen if the beauty of this landscape is allowed to perish? There will be no reason for tourists to visit Kashmir. More importantly, it will become well-nigh impossible for Kashmiris to live in Kashmir.
The government’s own data reveals that agriculture landholding in J&K has come down drastically. As per a report published on 10th agriculture census (2015–16) by the financial commissioner of revenue for the erstwhile state of J&K, the total number of operational holdings in the state was 14.16 lakh, operating on 8.42 lakh hectare of land.
This was 14.49 lakh holdings operating on 8.95 lakh hectare of land in the 9th agriculture census ( 2010–11).
This means that in a mere five-year period, J&K had witnessed a decrease of 2.27 percent in the number of holdings and a decrease of 5.92 percent in the operating area under agriculture.
The average holding size in J&K during the 10th agriculture census (2015–16) stood at 0.59 hectare. This has come down further in the 2021–22 agriculture census whose final report is yet to be made public.
As per the 2015–16 agriculture census, around 84 percent of farmers in J&K were marginal farmers and 11.29 percent, 4.10 percent, 0.78 percent and 0.04 percent farmers had small, semi-medium, medium and large land holdings respectively.
Marginal farmers are those who have less than 1 hectare of land holdings, small farmers have 1–2 hectare of land holdings, semi-medium farmers have 2–4 hectare of land holdings, medium farmers have 4–10 hectare of land holdings, and large farmers have more than 10 hectare of land holdings.
In the 9th agriculture census, the average land holding in J&K was 0.62 hectare and between 2010–11 and 2015–16 agriculture censuses, there has been a decrease of 0.03 hectare of agriculture land holding.
The unofficial figures say that the agricultural land has shrunk further in the last five–six years and is now only around 0.5 hectare. If this downward spiral continues, I believe that in the next 25 to 30 years, 90 percent of the rural population in J&K, especially in the Kashmir valley, will become landless.
We will see only concrete structures on our agricultural land. It will have serious consequences for our agriculture economy and tourism will be severely impacted as well. There will be more floods as our wetlands and lakes are choked and the built up concrete area doesn’t allow water to seep into the ground.
Unscientific waste disposal and illegal mining
In future, shrinking farmlands will not only impact our agriculture and tourism but will also have a direct impact on management of our municipal solid waste.
In J&K, 90 percent of the urban local bodies, including the Srinagar Municipal Corporation (SMC), Jammu Municipal Corporation (JMC) and smaller councils and committees have no official landfill sites. Waste is not treated as per the Municipal Solid Waste Rules, 2016. Even in Srinagar city, the only garbage dump site located at Achan Saidpora is choked and emits an obnoxious smell, especially during summer months.
Enough land isn’t available in our towns and cities to set up scientific landfill sites. In hilly towns, this is even more of a challenge, especially in Ramban, Doda and Udhampur, where municipal solid waste is dumped unscientifically in forests or waterbodies.
During the last decade, the SMC has not been able to acquire even 50–60 acre of land for creating a landfill as an alternative to the overburdened Achan Saidpora site.
In 2017, the then deputy chief minister Nirmal Singh, who was also the Minister for Housing & Urban Development Department (HUDD), while responding to a question from a legislator of Srinagar, Mubarak Gul, said on the floor of the J&K assembly that a committee had been constituted under the district magistrate of Srinagar to look for land to create a new landfill site in Srinagar but the committee could not find even 10 acre of land to set up the new landfill site.
It is a well-known fact that Srinagar and a majority of the districts in J&K have small landholdings and most of the land is already occupied by shopping complexes or housing colonies and finding large patches of land to set up landfill sites or garbage dump sites is a herculean task.
This is the reason that a majority of our water bodies, such as lakes, wetlands, rivers and streams, have become waste dump sites and this author had to move a formal application before the National Green Tribunal (NGT) to ensure a clean-up of the Doodh Ganga river in the Srinagar–Budgam area.
This waterbody is being used to dump solid waste at multiple locations by local residents. The Geology and Mining Department has auctioned this stream for riverbed mining with effect from September 2021 to 2026. The project proponent is mining as deep as 10 metre while only mining till 1 metre depth is allowed.
Huge cranes and JCB are also used for extracting sand, boulders and gravel, which is in violation of the J&K Minor Mineral Concession Rules 2016 and the guidelines of J&K State Environmental Impact Assessment Authority (SEIAA).
In addition, the SMC and a few other government bodies have set up around 13 wastewater pump stations on the banks of Doodh Ganga, which flush out untreated water and sewage into the stream in violation of Water (Prevention and Control of Pollution) Act, 1974. Keeping these violations under consideration and after providing the material facts, the NGT imposed a penalty of ₹35 crore on the government of J&K in October this year
In March this year, a ₹3 crore penalty had already been imposed. The money was released from the coffers of SMC, the Department of Geology and Mining and the municipal committees of Chadoora and Budgam.
In the Poonch district of Jammu, the local municipality is using the Poonch river as a garbage dump site. In this case, too, a few months back this author had to move an application before the NGT. Notice was issued to the district magistrate, Poonch and the pollution control committee, asking for a detailed report from them. The case is listed for hearing in July.
Heaps of plastic waste can be seen in the tourist places of Kashmir, such as Gulmarg, Pahalgam, Sonamarg, Yusmarg and Doodhpathri. The government should seriously think about banning plastic in these tourist spots.
The pilgrims visiting the Amarnath cave are littering in the high altitude mountains, which is even more dangerous because the waste does not decompose easily in the freezing weather at such high altitudes. The cave is also adjacent to the magnificent Kolahoi glacier and the waste acts like a hot knife through butter, trapping sunlight and cutting through the white snow and ice.
People visit the cave for spiritual reasons, but when they engage in anti-nature activities by throwing plastic, food and other wastes in the pristine glaciers and mountains, it leads to environmental destruction.
In Srinagar city alone, around 500 metric tonne of waste is generated daily and this quantity goes up during the tourist rush in summers. Unfortunately not even 10 percent of this waste is treated.
Same is the case with other tourist places of J&K such as Gulmarg, Sonamarg and Pahalgam. When 2 crore tourists visit J&K in a year, how will authorities manage them? Do we have scientific landfill sites? What about the carbon footprints these tourists will leave?
So it is advisable that the government must first concentrate on ensuring that all tourist places have a scientific waste management system in place. Plastic must be completely banned. No food items packed in plastic wrappers should be sold at tourist resorts.
The pilgrims coming for pilgrimage to the Amarnath cave should not be allowed to carry any plastic packed food materials and the number of pilgrims visiting the shrine should also be reduced, as recommended by Nitesh SenGupta Committee report.
Tourism is a small but vital part of Kashmir’s economy. But we must not let unregulated tourism put an unbearable strain on the natural resources and infrastructure of the region. By doing so, we may earn quick bucks for a few years, but it will ultimately result in Kashmir becoming a trashbowl.
Let us not allow Kashmir valley to become a trash valley.

2023.06.08 11:06 Cultural-Ideal-6551 AITA for not looking after the dog after they was rude to me?

My partner (J) has a lot of friend. Within this friendship there’s (D), she’s very “my way or the highway”. Her partner (B), will do anything D asks of him.
A few weeks back she rang me asking me if if I will look after her dog while they go to a concert. She said everyone else she’s asked has been too busy. She said my partner can come and stay with me, I reminded her he is also going to this concert. I said I’ll do it.
Me and my partner have booked in to go to a Karen’s Diner with my family for a birthday. None of us have been before and we’re all looking forward to experiencing it together- my Nan doesn’t have a clue about it so seeing her reactions would be brilliant!
So while we’re at D’s collecting keys, she says that she wants to go to Karen’s Diner before the concert. I say “Me and J are doing that together soon and we wanted to experience it first time together”, J nods in agreement.
D then continues to explain how J doesn’t have to go and can arrange something else for his food if he likes, but her and B are going. So as far as J is aware, he’s going to arrange food with L, N and K.
Two days later, in there group chat, D says she’s booked the table for all 6 of them and asks if they can all transfer her £5 for the booking fee. J says he didn’t agree to this and he thought he was going to go eat somewhere else. I message D saying I’m upset she’s disrespected what we said about wanting to experience it together and she turns around and says “Just because you don’t give permission for J to do things doesn’t mean it should stop me having fun, it’s only a restaurant get over your controlling self”.
D then proceeds to remove J from the booking leaving him on his own while all his friends go. I said I don’t want him to do that for me and if he wants to go so he isn’t left out I wouldn’t be upset about it as I would be a lot more upset knowing he’s on his own. J says he doesn’t want to do it without me but he’s in a dilemma because he’s reliant on them for transport to the concert and accommodation. He agreed that it’s not nice he’s left out and although he wanted to experience it first hand with me he’s going to go with all of them.
L and N then proceed to text J saying that D has told them that I’m trying to control him and how they’re concerned for their friend. He says to J “just lie to A if you have to, D has told she is saying you can’t go to a restaurant and that’s controlling behaviour”. J said that he didn’t want to go without me and that he’s more concerned making it to the concert anyway.
I’m upset from the lack of respect that they had for me and J and that D has made up lies about me. I feel bad for the dog and I’m not usually a bitter person.
AITA for not wanting to look after the dog now?

Om du ikke har hørt om den: Den har format litt likt "hjernevask", men med en tydeligere agenda. Den spør egentlig bare forskjellige fagfolk om å definere hva en kvinne er.

2023.06.08 11:05 wolf08741 [Online][5e] Experienced Player Looking for Roleplay Focused Game

Hello, my name is Conner, I'm 20, I've been playing 5e for a bit over 5 years now, and I'm looking for a new game to join. I have a preference for games that have a somewhat heavier focus on RP and story driven content, so I'm hoping to join a group that shares those same preferences. I also prefer homebrew settings/campaigns as I find them easier to get invested in as a player over modules.
When it comes to my schedule, I'm available pretty much any time in the evening (after 5 or 6pm works best for me but you could probably persuade me to start earlier) on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays (Time zone is PST). As for what class/character I was thinking of potentially playing, I was mostly leaning toward a Rogue but that could easily change, as I tend to build my characters with the setting, lore, DM input and party composition in mind.
If you think I'd be a good fit for your group, feel free to send a PM or just leave a comment telling me a little about your game and I'll try to get back to you as soon as I can if I'm interested.

Witnessed strange lights
Back at the end of last year I had a series of weird things happen that I’m trying to process/get some insight on. It started a few months after I began experimenting with magic mushrooms. I had taken a fair amount of mushrooms before these events happened and hadn’t experienced anything out of the ordinary even taking probably close to 7 grams in a period of 2 hours or so - and did not have too heavy of a trip) I decided to start dosing before work which I figured would be chill as (like I said) I had already experimented and did not get visuals or feel particularly out of control. In fact it felt like I was a lot more in tune with my surroundings even driving and stuff.
With that said, I started taking about 1 gram or so every couple days and around this time is when I met Sue - a homeless woman who would come into our coffee shop almost daily while I was barista-ing. I was immediately intrigued by her and we became fast friends. She told me she was 67, half miwok Indian, half polish, and she was always dressed in a colorful outfit, beautiful rings, with her nails painted. She’d tell me about her tarot readings and we’d share a cigarette while I was on break. It was clear when I met her she probably had some type of mental illness going on because she would sometimes talk loudly about arch angel michael, money from god, and things that didn’t make a lot of sense to me, but I tried to remain open minded and curious with her. I even offered her mushrooms but she refused saying she had “enough spiritual stuff going on in her life.”
One day, after a particularly interesting conversation with Sue, I disappeared off to run an errand for my boss, when I came back Sue was gone and my boss handed me a tattered book. it was “A Life in Drama” a biography on Shakespeare or something of the like, and the outside of the book was covered in cryptic pen drawings like I’d never seen before. There was an inscription “June Sue I learn from you!” Which immediately brought me back to the first day I met her. She had drawn me and I had told her loved that I loved her name - she told me I should add it to my name and I agreed with her.
“your guardian anglebirth” it read. And there was a sparrow hawk, trees, a ship all sort of in abstract pen drawing. On the front, in small ink, less than an inch, there was an almost abstract looking shape and in the center was the word “love” - she never told me what the shape was as she didn’t remember drawing it but later my therapist suggested it as a picnic basket. Anyway, a few days later I went and had it tattooed on my arm because I loved it.
I was in the process of quitting my job around this time so I wasn’t seeing Sue as often which prompted me to think about when to go visit her. I was in no hurry to show her, I knew when the time was right I would go.
A few afternoons later, after taking about a gram of mushrooms I bought 200$ worth and then went to see her. It was around this time that day I started hearing voices I thought at the time were god and the mushrooms themselves.
It’s been a while since this all happened so my memory is a bit blurry, though I did write down most of what happened shortly thereafter. Anyways, there was something about Sue that I trusted. I really wanted to show her my mushrooms so I took her to my trunk. All I remember is sitting in the back of the trunk with her and all of a sudden these crazy lilac purple lights start shining down on me like I’m on a stage? This is in broad daylight on the street. I remember there was like a little noise they made I think, and it felt like i was in the twilight zone. It was so bizarre - I’ve never experienced anything remotely like it. And the only place they really shown down on was my face and neck (where I had lots of acne). As I’m like, what the fuck is going on Sue looks over and says something along the lines of “many gifts are coming to you.” ( like I said, never experienced ANY visions before and having Sue acting like she saw the light too makes me feel like something weird is going on. )
Later on back in her tent all of a sudden I start experiencing the most insane pain but it’s not physical. To this day I don’t know how to describe it but I was deeply uncomfortable to the point where I am SCREAMING in this woman’s tent and she’s telling me to quiet down so the cops don’t come and commit me. After that she gave me water, food, and it kind of felt like she could read my mind which is a phenomena I experienced a lot the next few days. Everything I needed she provided. I was completely depleted and weak. She was yelling at mysterious powers saying “earthangel June (me) does not deserve this!!” She told me I had been divinely poisoned by the mushrooms because I had not blessed them before ingesting them. Later that night she also tells me that her tarot cards told her a young woman would come to visit her and that I was she.
I slowly came down a bit. Sue offered for me to spend the night, but I knew I wanted to go back home, though it was past midnight when I got home. I don’t remember much of the mundane time between - The next morning I woke and headed back to her where I spent another full day and find out both me and my dads debit cards aren’t working, and Sue is unsurprised (I’m starting to believe in this weird matrix of energy she’s talking about and feel like I’m targeted when I’m around her, or that she has some sort of bad luck) She dropped many lessons about God, energy, and demons and doing readings for people, which I started to come around to that day. I noticed that even people I would have avoided or felt unsafe with on my own, respected her or at least stayed away from her. I have a vivid memory of her saying “watch this!” And then with a lasso motion zapping me energetically so hard it makes me wince. That day Sue piled heaps of designer clothes into the trunk of my car which had been donated by the wealthy. As she does this she handed me a piece of paper that had printed on it what I later find out is a piece of “They’re made out of meat” by Terry Bison.
They're made out of meat." "Meat?" "Meat. They're made out of meat." "Meat?" "There's no doubt about it. We picked several from different parts of the planet, took them aboard our recon vessels, probed them all the way through. They're completely meat." "That's impossible. What about the radio signals? The messages to the stars." "They use the radio waves to talk, but the signals don't come from them. The signals come from machines." "So who made the machines? That's who we want to contact." "They made the machines. That's what I'm trying to tell you. Meat made the machines." "That's ridiculous. How can meat make a machine? You're asking me to believe in sentient meat." "I'm not asking you, I'm telling you. These creatures are the only sentient race in the sector and they're made out of meat."
She asked me if I remember the guy who comes into our coffee shop with a helmet on sometimes, and I say yes, and she suggests he might be an alien because she found this on the table after he left.
It is clear to me now that day, November 29th I was beginning to open the question - who am I? I’d been curious of my lineage but also potential past lives.
I went back home that night and At 2am still hopped up from the mushrooms I put on some clothes Sue had given me and got in my car feeling called to drive aimlessly. After 15 minutes I reached a glowing indigo Hyatt sign and immediately pulled in. I had just quit my Hyatt job and figured at the very least it could be a job opportunity for me there (as I had just quit working at a Hyatt)
When I got there a short, beautiful, and politely unassuming woman greeted me at a desk amidst a beautiful well light welcoming room. She appeared to be completely alone and I immediately felt safe and welcomed by her, though I quickly revealed I wasn’t quite sure why I had intended to show up to the hotel. I went with the flow, the woman asked me if I’d rather be at a cheaper Hyatt down the road and I immediately refused. I went to use the restroom, when I came out there was a single strangely menacing, yet friendly guard.
I hung around aimlessly, asking if I could sit on the marble countertops - dressing and acting as if completely in a trance and unashamed of myself and still high on mushrooms. The woman discouraged me because I think I would’ve been seen on the cameras. Instead, I sat down on a comfortable couch and began to converse with her. I felt She was gentle and good hearted but I also felt we were deeply on the same wavelength somehow. She asked me about my life, and I vaguely mentioned it was changing deeply - referring to my experiences with Sue and Psylocibin, without mentioning them. I stared deeply and intently at her, listening to her talk a bit, while in my head I asking questions in my mind “who will I have children with?” “Where do I belong in this life?” Feeling desperate and exhausted by those questions.
The woman picked up her can of bright red coke with both hands, 3 fingers facing up on either side, and told me the answers would come to me in a dream. I broke out into surprised, joyful, and astounded laughter and exclaimed “holy shit!” Because in my state it seemed like she was totally clued into what I had going on. Then she said what translated to my trancelike state as something along the lines of, “this isn’t my first rodeo.”
At this point, I’m still in an altered state and believe this hotel is somehow heaven?
Once our conversation was over, we took the elevator up together, (I think she knew I was high and wanted to make sure nothing went wrong.) I asked for a room on the 4th floor, but she said an entire childrens soccer team was residing and that she’d give me the third. I laughed and thanked her. She asked me a few questions, I don’t remember what they were, but they were easy to answer and I only remember her saying “we just want to make sure what you took was clean.” I’m not sure what she meant by this looking back, but in the moment I thought she was asking me because there was something she didn’t want to share with me if the mushrooms I had taken weren’t safe. Like she wanted to check my purity or something (though I could be imagining that)
She lead me to my room, said I could leave the door open, with the latch, when I wanted to come down, and did not give me a key and then she said that she’d be with me all night long.
I put my things down, and immediately began to look at myself in the luminescent hotel room mirrors feeling a deep pain and sadness. I slowly and delicately put my hair up, washed my face carefully, got undressed and began to massage lotion into my skin for some reason?
Then I looked in the mirror and began to squeeze the gunk out of my skin, believing that I am somehow ridding myself of ancestral curses - famine, disease, rape, pain. I started to form a story line around potential past lives. I’ll spare y’all the details of the rest of my episode because a lot of it still doesn’t make much sense to me. But besides the light I saw, it’s little coincidences that I keep coming back to in my mind that are so strange.
Like, The next day I get a haircut, the barber is an eclectic guy and mentions my evil twin sister (something Sue also did) for no apparent reason (I’ve never met the guy before) afterwards I go to the kava bar and immediately meet a random girl who also seems to be in the middle of a psychotic episode. She starts talking about conspiracy theories and stuff and she tells me she is secretly a native woman who just appears to be a black woman. Then she pulls out a pendulum and refers to it as “this thingy” I’m a bit surprised because the night before Sue had shown me how to use one to read yes, no and maybe.
I take my new friend Candace back home with me (she reveals to me she has another name she only shares when she feels safe) I don’t remember what it was but when I introduce her to one of my roommates as Candace he says “oh no it’s something more ancient than that” which I find really weird because he’s never met her before (how would he know she had a second name?) and it’s just a weird thing to say in general.
I forget I have a therapy appointment that day and am all of a sudden skeptical of my therapist, Candace briefly meets her and then tells me “she was divinely sent” which makes me feel less paranoid and I remember expecting her to say something of the like.
It’s also around this time I find 3 dead birds on a bike ride on the ground (3 different species) within exactly 11 minutes and they seem to stand out enough to maybe be trying to tell me something. I asked my friend who is a medicine woman to interpret the meaning, and it feels pretty on point to what happened looking back.
In retrospect, not necessarily everything I’ve shared means something extra-ordinary, but I’m curious to hear some other thoughts on what happened, and the context.
I put my things down, and immediately began to look at myself in the luminescent hotel room mirrors feeling a deep pain and sadness. I slowly and delicately put my hair up, washed my face carefully, undressed and began to massage lotion into my skin for some reason?
Then I looked in the mirror and began to squeeze the gunk out of my skin, believing that I was somehow ridding myself of ancestral curses - famine, disease, rape, pain. I started to form a story line around potential past lives.
I laid down in the bed, bluntly put, grabbed my vibrator, and spent hours with a voice in my head I believe to be the woman. She was gentle, wise and delicate, and when I touched myself I felt it was not me but her.
She told me things I wanted to understand about original biblical references, the creation of Adam and Eve, or whatever names they were, and I saw and felt at times, that I was birthing other creations amidst the quiet, deep intense, solitude of our connection. It was deeply lovely. I looked at the clock and had an innate sense our time was coming to an end. Completely naked and feeling nothing but gratitude, love, and wonder, I opened the curtains and looked out at the most beautiful cloudy sunrise. I felt I was looking directly at god and not a word had been said all night inside the room. It was one of the most beautiful things ID ever seen - I was truly in it, and I just knew.
I forgot, that when I had first checked into the room I had texted the man I was sleeping with, whom I loved, but was feeling confusion around as we were staying only casually connected. I regrettedly called him back (he had tried to call me earlier after I had sent him a series of cryptic texts like “some really cool shit is happening call me when you can.”) I asked him if I could come over, he said “I have some things to do today, can it wait?” I said “no” “he said I guess I can make the time then, or something along those lines.” Still in a complete trancelike state, I got in the car and frantically drove to his house without any real permission, which is painful to think about in retrospect.
When I got there, I unassumingly rang the doorbell and he happily let me in as if, or as I thought, he’d been expecting me.
I crawled into bed with him and felt safe again, like I had with Sue and with the woman whose name I had learned was Alexandria. I thought I could relax, but then immediately sex ensued again, and I felt both more and less control than I usually did when I was not in this strange state.
I don’t remember much except screaming and crying loudly, calling his name and telling him I loved him (which I had never done before) and I remember him saying it back to me.
I could feel my spiritual energy was so strong he was responsive to it which was terrifying as it was so new to both of us. In retrospect, I feel we were-him most of all, somewhat blind to what was happening. Sue had told me we had the power to hypnotize men, but I didn’t think I would be doing that so soon.
Before I knew it he asked me if I had a condom. I said no only in my car outside. And he pulled out what almost appeared to be a flaming red one directly after asking me if I had mine. I don’t remember putting it on or taking it off. I asked if he’d had sex with anyone else and he said “last week” which was strange and hurt me because I thought we had been sort of accidentally exclusive for the majority of our relationship together - later he revealed he had not had sex. I recall holding his hand and showing each other the birth of creation, me showing him love perhaps, feeling balls of light and darkness as stars circle each other before they explode. After that I only really remember being on top of him, me in complete control, asking him to cum, him saying “I can’t” and then having a massive horrible realization, looking him straight in the face and saying, “ohhhhh you’re the devil aren’t you? You’re beautiful. Oh my god you’re beautiful.” He looked so beautiful and I held his face. Then I was professing my love for him again and again and again even though my heart was breaking as I did because I somehow knew the face looking at me was not capable of love. The rest was a confusing blur. I don’t remember much about leaving him except that it hurt me probably more than the spiritual pain I had experienced in the tent. I felt completely and utterly alone, heart broken, and terrified. Rattled, and in a daze I pulled up my phone directions, and drove for what felt like 20 minutes until I saw a beautifully insane woman, head hung low, dressed in black, almost like a shadow, sitting on the curb, both feet in the road. I slowed down, rolled my window, and asked for Sue. She said yes she’s already at the place with the TV, and she said she wanted something in return. She went to reach for my Bluetooth adapter and without question, I handed it to her. I had learned not to be afraid to lose things, my love and life was the only thing that mattered to me.
I drove onward, got on the freeway, and in memory, passed exits I recognized over and over again driving for what felt like an hour, miserable and screaming and crying in pain and fear, windows rolled down wind recklessly pushing and pulling at me, and calling out for Sue, understanding I was time traveling. I remember most vividly seeing the words “Richard blvd” (the name of my exit to Davis” at least twice between sacramento exits. I attempted not to doubt, only to trust, I would arrive home, though I was terrified for my physical and spiritual lives.
I don’t remember much about arriving home. I only remember being deeply relieved to be somewhere familiar again.
I would stay in this state a few more days…until my parents pulled me out, I believed my mother had died and I felt such agony I was screaming in the room of my house, my roommates rushing in to comfort me. I was not in control enough of myself to remain on those realms in any capacity after the days I had been through. I needed to be recaptured reraptured in love only my family could give me. And I am forever grateful they took me home to them.
