2023.06.05 09:00 KCNA_Official Struggle for Ousting Traitor Yoon Suk Yeol in Regions of Puppets

Various circles in the regions of puppets are intensifying their struggle to judge traitor Yoon Suk Yeol.
The Pusan joint action for the withdrawal of the U.S. forces held a press conference in Pusan on June 2 where it declared that it would turn out in the struggle to judge traitor Yoon who is escalating the crisis of war.
Calling for a stop to war drills, speakers at the conference said that they should oust Yoon, a war maniac, who is driving the people into the danger of war as a shock brigade of the U.S.
The participants shouted the resignation of the traitor while holding a symbolic ceremony of tearing up a paper reading "Yoon Suk Yeol, a war shock brigade of the U.S. and Japan".
The writers held a press conference in Seoul on June 1 where they denounced traitor Yoon for bringing a crisis to the Korean Peninsula through war drills with the U.S.
Speakers condemned that the U.S., the chief culprit of national division, is instigating the north-south confrontation and demanding the submission to its interests while forcing the triangular military alliance, and that Yoon is running amuck in the van.
617 civic and public organizations held a press conference in Seoul where they vowed not to stand back even a step from the struggle for the resignation of the traitor.
The organizations said that they would turn out in the struggle by inheriting the spirit of the martyrs for democracy who fought for the democratization, human rights, peace and reunification on this land, and surely oust traitor Yoon who is running amuck in the van like "the head of an action corps", not content with acting as a spokesman for the U.S. and Japan.
Civic and public organizations in Kwangju and Taegu held press conferences where they called on everyone to turn out in the struggle for the resignation of Yoon, who is trying to make the masses bullet-shields of the U.S. and Japan and leaving everything of the nation to the tender mercy of the U.S. and Japan.
The construction workers' union under the Confederation of Trade Unions held a rally in Seoul where it said that it would defend its union which Yang Hoe Dong felt pride at the cost of his life and that it would struggle to realize his desire.
Seven organizations, including the "fellowship society for democratic youths and students league" comprising the people who turned out in the movement for democracy from the 1970s to the early 1990s, formed the "emergency situation council for democratic action to check the crisis of war, the ruin of people's living and the dictatorship by prosecution, and went on the struggle for the resignation of the traitor.
They called upon all the generations who have devoted their youth to the movement for democracy to join the ranks of the struggle for checking the dictatorship by prosecution, the ruin of people's living and the crisis of war, shouting "Let the masses unite into one to fight against the dictatorship."
Universities in the area of Seoul, including Seoul National University, Ehwa Woman's University, Sogang University, Tongguk University and Kyonghui University, started the movement for posting wall-papers censuring the criminal acts of traitor Yoon and calling for turning out in the struggle for his resignation, and the movement is expanding across the regions of puppets.
The wall-papers carried the letters reading "We denounce the suppression of the labor union, which drove martyr Yang Hoe Dong to death", "A working person killed himself again", "The death made by the regime, It is not a suicide, but a murder", "Is the future of our students who will become working people safe".
A puppet political expert posted on a website an article titled "The presage of an early collapse of Yoon Suk Yeol regime started".
The expert said that the ruling mode of Yoon is almost 100 percent like that of Park Geun Hye's regime, adding that the only way out for traitor Yoon is the way of traitors Syngman Rhee and Park Geun Hye.

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 60%. (I'm a bot)
A car with the licence plate "US8964" - the date of the Tiananmen crackdown - was impounded in Causeway Bay on Sunday, the 34th anniversary of the crackdown.
The car's owner, Anthony Chiu, told HKFP that officers cited his embossed licence plate, and brake as reasons to impound the vehicle.
1/ Police stopped a man driving a Porsche with a license plate reading US 8964 outside Windsor House near Victoria Park.
The car made an appearance in Causeway Bay last year on June 4, when it was stopped by police outside Windsor House on Great George Street.
A passer-by told him that his car had a "Really nice licence plate."
Despite the lack of organised mourning events, the police was deployed en masse, with at least a dozen of people stopped and searched or taken away by officers.

What You Get:

MODULE 1

YOUR PROFITABLE PRODUCT IDEA

Designing a Blockbuster Hit Starts Here
The best products start with the best and most profitable ideas 鈥 which don鈥檛 happen by chance nor by waiting for lightning to strike.
It takes a proven process to zero in on the idea with the potential to fly off the shelves.
In this module, you鈥檒l discover my Profitable Product Idea. You will:
  • Choose the best product and audience for you to profit from right now
  • Make sure your Idea passes all 7 Criteria of the Profitable Niche Checklist
  • Express your Idea in one simple phrase that attracts your target market in droves
  • Pre-validate there鈥檚 demand for your Idea in a way that automatically lines up your future customers
  • Create your Profitable Product Idea Blueprint so you have everything in one place
This process was developed over 7 years and 7,000 students, and can shave months or even years off your journey from idea to profit.
Whether you don鈥檛 have any ideas, or you have too many ideas, or you鈥檙e not sure whether your idea will work, your Blockbuster Hit Product starts here.
MODULE 2

YOUR IDEA TO MARKET BLUEPRINT

Turning Your Idea Into an Irresistible Offer
In this module, you鈥檒l take your profitable idea and transform it into the kind of thing folks will line up to buy.
We call it your 鈥淥ffer鈥, and it鈥檚 the scaffolding around your idea that makes it real. Elements such as:
  • Your blockbuster course name, your price point, your guarantee, bonuses and the reasons to buy now
  • The points of credibility that create massive buyer trust 鈥 even if you鈥檙e just getting started
  • Your uniquely valuable 鈥減rocess鈥 鈥 how you go about getting your students results (a huge selling point)
  • The social proof to start attracting paying customers immediately, even if this is the first time you鈥檙e doing this
The right offer can triple or even quadruple your sales, while the wrong offer will turn a great Idea into a ghost town.
By the end of this module, you鈥檒l have the deep confidence that comes from knowing that everything you鈥檙e creating is exactly what your audience wants to buy.
Now you鈥檒l be ready for Module 3, where we鈥檒l start building!
MODULE 3

YOUR MVP LAUNCH

Creating Your Minimal Viable Product & Getting to Market Fast
By the end of this module, you鈥檒l create just enough of your new program or course to be able to start making real, actual sales to real actual customers.
So many programs stop short of this critical step, and leave you stranded, wondering how to bridge the gap between theory and practice. That鈥檚 a huge mistake, because it鈥檚 critical to test the real world response to your offer before you create your whole course or product, while you still have time to make easy changes and pivots.
Some folks hit it out of the park on the first try, while others need to refine and adjust for a few cycles before they land on just the right thing. Either way, this process ensures you never waste months and thousands of dollars creating the wrong thing.
In this Module you鈥檒l:
  • Use the 鈥減aint-by-numbers鈥 MVP process to choose the exact pieces of your product and how they fit together
  • Finalize your Launch 鈥淏lueprint鈥, including the exact concrete steps to get to market FAST and start making sales straight away
  • Choose and deploy one of the 3 simple marketing & promotion campaigns to locate and find the people most likely to want to buy from you
  • Copy/paste from our pre-written campaign messaging templates to immediately have people wanting to know more (versus tuning out or scrolling past)
  • Follow the word-for-word sales scripts to confidently sell your MVP and start taking money even before the end of the module!
MODULE 4

SUPERCHARGE YOUR MARKETING

Reach Even More People & Make Even More Sales
Now that you鈥檝e proven your offer by making some sales, our optional Module 4 is where you can take your marketing even further by stacking 2-3 campaigns together to create a supercharged, multiplier effect.
Whether you stack simple campaigns, requiring little-to-no technology, or more robust campaigns 鈥 this is how you realize Goal X. A whole lot more. Whatever that looks like to you.
In this Module, get ready to turn a handful of sales into an avalanche:
  • Get our EIGHT pre-written ready-to-go 鈥淓xperience Marketing鈥 Campaigns that you can just plug right in
  • Recieve my entire vault of pre-written scripts, emails, web page templates, sales & video scripts that you can take and customize or just use 鈥渁s is鈥 鈥 they鈥檙e yours and they鈥檝e generated literally millions of dollars for my other students
  • Create a Custom Campaign Stack that suits your dominant marketing style 鈥 whether you prefer to sell through 1:1 conversations, speaking to groups, or writing 鈥 so marketable feels easier than it ever has before
  • Recieve my entire vault of pre-written scripts, emails and web page templates that you can take and customize or just use 鈥渁s is鈥 鈥 they鈥檙e yours and they鈥檝e generated literally millions of dollars for my other students
  • Stand out with your marketing in a powerful, unique, fresh and engaging way that gets the attention of your ideal customers, which is 99% of the battle in today鈥檚 noisy marketplace, so you can make some real money
After that, we start to really dial up the 鈥淲OW鈥 for your students鈥
MODULE 5

EXPERIENCE ESCALATION

Supercharge Your Results
Now that you鈥檝e proven your product with real sales and you have a plan for reaching even more people and making even more money, this is where we pour fuel on the fire by 鈥渆xperiencifying鈥 your course.
鈥淓xperiencification鈥 is the process of stacking the 10 Core Experiences of The Experience Formula鈩 into every element of your Experience Product, to increase the effectiveness of your product by 10-30 times.
In this Module you鈥檒l:
  • 鈥淓xperiencify鈥 your program with the 10 Core Experiences of The Experience Formula鈩 to create an engaging experience that works with (rather than against) the brain to get your customers 鈥渉ooked鈥 on taking action and getting results
  • Watch as your students spontaneously put down distractions and excuses and become 鈥渁chievement machines鈥, focused on taking action, getting results and bringing more customers your way
  • Embed a powerful process for gathering success stories right into your course, so you can quickly have dozens if not hundreds of glowing testimonials (this is how I ended up with 1480 testimonials and counting for EPM!)

2023.06.05 08:48 shortstory1 I don't want to be famous, I want to be remembered till the end of time

I keep getting sent CCTV footages of a security guard working in a financial office type setting, and whenever he sees balloons coming towards him, he takes his trousers down. I do not know the meaning of this and being the security manager, I have to deal with this. I do not know who is sending me these CCTV footages of this security guard pulling down his trousers when balloons are coming towards him. I have to investigate but I am dealing with a lot of things right now, it's hard being the managers and having to manage things when I have lots of things to deal with in my personal life.
What I am dealing with in my personal life, is also everyone else's problem. Humanity is child raised up by a single mother. That single mother is called mother nature, and we never hear of father nature. The reason we never hear of father nature is because father nature ran away, bailed and every other word you can think of that's got to do with running away. Humanity was raised by a single mother and it was hard, difficult and so much toil. Father nature should have helped but father nature wasn't around.
Then I was sent more CCTV footages of this very same security guard, whenever balloons come towards him he always pulls his pants down. Sometimes he even takes all his clothes off, when the balloons come towards him. The balloons were brought into he office because of a party, it was someone's birthday. I really don't have time to investigate as I am feeling really down about father nature, leaving mother nature all on her own to raise humanity and everything else. I get sent more CCTV footages of the same security guard pulling his pants down, when these damn balloons come towards him. Just pop the God damn balloons for crying out loud, I don't have time for this.
Then I find father nature just walking around the park and I verbally tell him off, that he doesn't deserve to be walking around in the park or in this world, because he left mother nature all on her own. Father nature apologised for leaving humanity, and also for leaving mother nature to raise humanity all on her own. I started to become a bit emotional and father nature told me how it was all too much for him, and that he is trying to make amends now.
Then I get sent more CCTV footages of the same security taking his clothes off, when the balloons come towards him. I don't get but a message was written underneath the CCTV footages. This financial office use to be a children's hospital during world war 2, and lots of children died. Then I looked at the balloons moving towards the security guard, the balloons aren't moving on their own, they are being moved. The security always takes his clothes off......

2023.06.05 08:47 northhoustoncouple Weird experience at the Candy Cane park in Conroe

We had a really, really weird experience today at a local park, where we visit often. We're still not sure what happened, and aren't accusing anyone of anything nefarious, but it just goes to show that people need to be aware of their surroundings.
We were walking our dogs in a large park when a woman approached us on the jogging track from the tennis courts, super excited and wanting to see the dogs. Neither of the dogs wanted her attention, which was weird in and of itself, but she also gave both my husband and I really weird vibes.
She kept getting in my personal space, touching me, basically hugging me and hanging on me, to an extent that was uncomfortable. We talked about how weird and uncomfortable she made us as we continued our walk.
When we went to leave, we discovered that my backpack/ purse was opened halfway. It was on my back the entire trip, and the only time it was opened was to put the car keys in it when we first got to the park, like we always do, no matter where we go. This process has worked for us on thousands of miles worth of trips.
Lo and behold, my car keys were missing. Both of us specifically knew they were there; we're both high strung and knew my husband had put them in it while I wore it, like we always do. We've never, ever lost our keys before. Luckily, our key fob had broken off THIS morning, so it was separate, so we could still unlock the truck.
We looked and looked, but the keys were gone, and no one had seen them. We called a local locksmith, and ended up waiting for a while.
It got dark, with only three other cars in the lot. A small red car with someone sitting in it on their phone was parked next to us for over 2hrs; a small civic was parked across from us, and another old 4runner was next to them.
The civic seemingly couldn't start their car, they kept 'trying' to start it; all their lights were working, and the starter was engaging, but it wouldn't start. It stopped turning over every time it got close.
The locksmith got there, and immediately the red car left, a woman got out of the pasenger seat of the civic, into the 4runner and drove off.. And the civic immediately started up, after not being able to start for over an hour, and also drove off.
We don't know what happened, but every single car in the parking lot left at the same time our mechanic started working on our 4runner, IMMEDIATELY.
We are vigilant, and rarely let people in our space. We travel often. We don't know what happened for sure, but the scenario was very, very confusing and left us feeling unsafe.
$400 later for the locksmith, but we still have our runner, and the smith actually was interested in buying one of the cats I breed. We always say, we have the best worst luck there is, the best and the worst. Something bad might happen, but it'll turn out in the best way we can, because we live a blessed life.
Maybe we're being paranoid, but we won't be allowing anyone to approach our dogs in the future, or invade our space. We'd been talking about starting to carry on a regular basis, and this has been the push we need to make that happen. If you've got a preferred EDC, let me know!
Just be aware of y'all's surroundings, and be safe!

I started to become a bit emotional and father nature told me how it was all too much for him, and that he is trying to make amends now.
Then I get sent more CCTV footages of the same security taking his clothes off, when the balloons come towards him. I don't get but a message was written underneath the CCTV footages. This financial office use to be a children's hospital during world war 2, and lots of children died. Then I looked at the balloons moving towards the security guard, the balloons aren't moving on their own, they are being moved. The security always takes his clothes off......

2023.06.05 08:44 DimondNugget The endless basement that goes down forever.

One day I was hiking along a small mile long trail and it was an ordinary weekend and a nice sunny day. I knew the weather was going to be nice today so I decided to go for a hike and I drove to my nearest state park and once I got out of my car I smelled the nice fresh air of the outdoors and then I saw a small one mile trail and decided to go on it I walked a while on the trail and while I was walking on the trail I heard the peaceful sounds of the birds chirping and I saw the beautiful forest and the beauty of mother nature around me as I was walking near the end of the trail and I was greeted by a blocked off gravel path and a sign saying please do not go on this path hikers are not allowed on this path 500 dollar fine if caught walking on it.
I was curious when I saw this and I looked around to see If anyone was around me and I saw that no one was around me and I then jumped the fence that was blocking the gravel path I was finally walking on the forbidden gravel path and I got a rush out of it knowing I was doing something forbidden. On this so called forbidden path I looked around me to see if there was any park rangers I of course did not see any. I then kept walking on the gravel path and I was walking for a while and I kept seeing signs telling me to go back and stop walking on this path of course I ignored the signs and kept walking.
I looked at my clock and saw it was getting late and I was starting to get worried because the park is closing soon and the park rangers usually check the park to see if anyone is still in the park at closing time and If I got caught that means I would get fined 500 dollar so my paranoia made me to look around me to see if there were any park rangers around me there were none around and that gave me sigh of relief. I kept walking and it was really starting to get dark and I heavily searched my bag to see if I had a flash light I found a small dim flash light in my bag but it was bright enough to see around me but as I looked around to see I thought I had saw something in the corner of my eye of course it scared me a bit but I shrugged it off as my mind playing tricks on me. I then heard the wind howling and I thought I could hear something faint in the wind as I was listening.
I at first thought my mine was playing tricks on me and I kept listening I found out my mind was not playing tricks on me I was hearing voices in the wind and the voices were telling me to go back and to get off the forbidden path. I looked around to see that no one was there,was I hallucinating? I was walking and for a while I did not hear anything but then the wind started to howl again and I heard "please go back it's not safe". I was shaken up by this so I looked around me to see that no one was there I was for sure I heard someone. I then kept seeing stuff in the corner of my eye again and I thought I saw a ghostly figure for a second but every time I looked they were gone. I then once again started to hear the wind howling and I began to hear voices again and I kept hearing "go back go back get off the gravel path". At this point dawn was starting to come and the sky was starting to turn brighter and I saw something in the distance it was some sort of mansion me being the curious and adventurous I was happy to explore what ever this mansion was. I proceed to approach the mansion and as I was walking to it the wind began to howl very violently and the wind gust were very strong and it almost knocked me over my feet.
I began to hear "please go back go back do not go in there". I of course was too curious about the mansion to listen to what the voices were saying. I then opened the front door of the mansion and I walked in and saw that the place was old and was falling apart the wooden boards were rotting away and it smelled like mildew. I knew by the looks of this place it was abandoned and no one lived there. I was curious to explore this place so I walked around and I proceed to walk to the first room and I saw that there was a lot of holes in the wall and it looked torn apart, the bed was broken and the window was broken and I could tell that this place was old and rotting away. I then proceeded to the next room and I saw that there was symbols wrote with dried blood on the wall, this of course scared me bad and I jumped and I saw that there was rotting away skeletons of animals in this room, It looked like as if there was devil worshipers here. I then tried to walk to more rooms in this mansion and I saw more scary stuff. I saw that there was a warning wrote in dried blood on the walls saying whatever you do, do not go in the basement it's dangerous.
I then was curious to go in the basement of the mansion and I was the cat who could have died from their own curiosity. I then saw the door to the basement and I looked at it for a good 20 minutes, and after minutes I finally made up my mind to go open the basement door and go down there. I then proceeded to open the basement door and I then walked down the stairs and as I walked down the stairs the basement door slammed shut and I walked back up and tried to open the basement door I tried to open as hard as I could but it would not budge "shit I'm trapped in this basement and can't get out". I tried again to get the door to open I even tried pounding the door down but it did not work the door was locked shut.
I then gave up on trying to open the basement door and walked back down the stairs and I saw that the basement was huge and the was dried blood all over the walls It was crazy how much dried blood was on the walls and I was very scared I wanted to pound on the basement door again and get out of this place but I knew that would not work. I walked around some more around the basement and saw that there was more stairs it seemed as if the stairs went down to another floor. I proceeded to walk down the stairs and I got to where this floor was and I saw on this floor had a bit more dried blood on the wall then the previous floor I was on. I saw that this floor was bigger than the previous floor I was on and It was a massive room and in the corner of my eye I saw a figure of some sort and when I turned around it was not there I jump but then told myself that my mind was playing tricks on me because this basement was just so creepy.
I again saw that something was in the corner of my eye I looked around me fast and saw that no one was there. I kept walking around this floor and saw that it was full of furniture like very old stuff from what seemed to be from the 70s or 60s and they was a radio of some sort it only had AM on it and no FM. I thought to myself if I could turn on the radio but wondered if it still had worked so I pressed the button and surprised it turned on and starting working. All I heard at first was just static but then I kept listening and I could barely hear anything and I thought I heard something though the static but then I could finally hear something though the static and I hear what sounded like creepy voices in the static. I still could not hear it because there was still a lot of static on the radio and I tried to tune the radio to see if I could hear it more but nothing came out of it and I could still hear a lot of static but then after a few minutes I heard the voices again on the radio and I heard the voices louder this time and I could hear what they where saying and I heard a bone chilling sound coming from the radio a girl screaming "dad please help me I'm being tormented the beast is tormenting me please make it stop"!
My heart nearly stopped due to how scared I was. I saw that there was even more stairs that went down what seem like even another floor a 3rd floor even. I was curious and walked down the stairs and walked into the 3rd floor it even had the number 3 on it. I saw that this floor was not as big as the 2nd floor. I began to see that there was spiders on the wall but there was only of few of them on the walls and saw some more stuff it looked like there was some writing on the wall and it said the further you go down the worse it gets.
There were bricks on the walls of this floor and there was no wallpaper just bricks on the walls and I saw that there was a door to another room of some sort on this floor. I opened the door and saw that it was pitch black in this room and I walked into the room and could not see in the room so I got the flashlight from my bag and turned it on and it still was pitch black it's like this room was sucking any light away so I had to feel around the room but as I got walking around this room and feeling my way around I felt as if someone was behind me and I felt as if I was not alone in this room and the longer I stayed in the room the stronger the feeling got and tried to find my way out of the room because I felt as if someone was behind me and I felt as if someone was gently touching me and It got me scared but I then bolted and tried to find my way out of the room but could not for a few minutes and I then could hear a faint growl in my ear and I was running as fast I could and I finally found my way out of the room I was in. I slammed the door shut to the room I was in and I saw even more stairs that went down to another floor and ran down the stairs.
I was now on the 4th floor and saw that on the 4th floor there was cobwebs on the ceiling of the floor and spiders were more common than on the 3rd floor and there was more dried blood on the wall than the previous floors I was in. There was a lot more stuff on this floor and there was dining tables and chairs on this floor and it looks like as this was a restaurant from the 60s or 70s and I walked around the floor and there was cobwebs on the tables and chairs and spiders were crawling on the table but then I saw that there was a kitchen of some sort and I kept feeling as if something was behind me but the feeling was not that strong and I kept seeing stuff in the corner of my eye but when I turned I saw that nothing was there I realized that in the darker places that where less illuminated the feeling of something being behind me was there .
There were flickering lights in this place that seem as if they were about to die out. I somehow walked into a darker place in the floor and the feeling of something behind me was coming back. I felt as if something was lurking in this place and they lurked in the darker areas with less light. I saw that was of course more stairs that went down into the 5th floor. I was now in the 5th floor and holy crap this place was getting creepy there was a lot more cobwebs on this floor then there was on floor 4 and the spiders where now in big numbers and the spiders looked even bigger than before. This floor was even darker with less light. I saw that there was tables and chairs on the 5th floor just like the last one but they where on the tables but then as I looked away and looked back I saw that the chairs were now on the floor and broken for some reasons and I thought to myself this place has to be haunted. There less light bulbs that were on this floor than on the last floor and it was darker and there was less light.
Like I said in darker areas I felt as if someone was behind me and on this floor the feeling was stronger than on the last floor. I walked around and was in darker areas with less light and the feeling of someone behind me was getting stronger and stronger until I stopped walking and I listened closely and I could faintly hear a voice of some sort and it sounded creepy and I got scared and walked to a lighter area with more light and I saw something in the corner of my vision and then turned around to see a tall skinny shadow figures and it appeared to be afraid of the areas of the place with more light so I kept going around the place and saw more figures and I went into a darker area and something jumped out at me and tried to attack me and I ran to where a light bulb illumined the place and the figures stopped were scared off by the light of the light bulb and stopped attacking me because of the light.
I kept going down more floors and my god it felt like this thing was going down forever I was on the 15th floor when things really started getting bad the cobwebs where getting the point to where they are covering everything and spiders where so big to the point to where they are the size of the palm of my hand. I saw that there was little spiders in such massive numbers that something you could not see what they were because it was covered in so many spiders. On the 15th floor it was so dark that you could barely see in front of you the only reason I could see that there spiders everywhere was because there was only a few light bulbs on the floor that were dimly lit . The Odor on this floor was bad and it smelled like dead rotting corpses and so much dried blood on everything that it covered every square inch on what was on the floor and on the wall on everything and on everywhere.
I was standing under a dimly lit light and around me I would hear voices screaming "help me help I'm being tormented"! I then saw that around be where hundreds of glowing eyes around me but I felt as if I would be safe as long as if there was light around me. I stayed under the light bulb for until the eyes went away but then a few minutes later the light bulb above me went out and when that happened I knew I was in trouble and I bolted and I could not see in the dark so I bumped around everything and tripped and fell and as I fell something grabbed me and I could tell that this thing was big. It was dark and I could not see anything but I was in this what ever this thing was grip and I thrashed and tried to punch this thing but it was not budging I felt as if my life was coming to an end.
A stroke of luck happened and for some god only knows reason I escaped from what ever this thing was grip and ran as fast I could in the dark tripping over objects and then getting back up. I was in the dark and saw a dim light in the distance and I got closer to see it was a dimly lit light bulb I felt safe under this light bulb and the thing did not go near it. I went down more floors and on floor 18 is when some very scary stuff started happening at this point spiders where the size of cats and the cob webs where so thick that it was getting hard to walk through. I was getting attacked by spiders I was fighting them off it was getting to the point where I was getting overwhelmed by them. I found a baseball bat on the floor and used it to beat the spiders and kill them.
I heard screams everywhere and they were ear piercing. All I could hear was "I'm being tormented help"! I then realized that there was water on the floor about an inch of it. I kept walking around and I kept hearing the sloshing of water on the floor as I walked I tried to turn on my flashlight because it was dark but the darkness of the room was so bad that it sucked all the light away from the flash light. I was walking and a very nasty smell hit my nose, it was the smell of rotting corpses but the smell was very strong and I began to throw up and nearly passed out. I felt as this place I was in was filled with corpses and that was confirmed when I saw a very dim light in the distance and when I went to it I was hundreds of rotting corpses and some of them where in the very thick cobwebs hanging with web wrapped around them like mummies.
I looked down and saw that the so called inch of water was not water at all it was an inch of blood filled with maggots and flies swarming them by the thousands. I looked and saw a corpse and I kept staring at it and saw that it had long flowing blond hair and was wearing a pink backpack with yellow stars and had a purple shirt that said lets go tigers and that when it hit me like a truck and tears started flowing down my face this was my daughter she is dead and was smelly rotting corpse that mostly been mummified. My daughter was 16 when she went missing and her school mascot was a tiger and her name was Amy and she had a pink backpack with stars. I miss her so much and if she was alive by now she who have been an adult at the age of 18. I then look to see at her backpack to confirm if it was her and I saw the name Amy written on her backpack I confirmed that this was in fact my daughter. I kept digging in the backpack to see what was in it and found her phone it turned on with 45 percent battery and no password was on it.
I could no longer hold it in anymore and the tears flowing down my face become full blown sobbing. My daughter is just a mummified dead corpse. I took my daughters phone out of her backpack and put it in my pocket and as I was doing that is when I heard it a low pitched growl and a very creepy one and then I froze for a solid minute and then heard a another growl and I tried to be as quiet as I could and heard the sound of water sloshing around but that of course was not water but it was blood sloshing around. I kept hearing the blood sloshing as if something was moving around in it and my heart was pounding very hard and I felt as this was the end of me I then realized I was in this thing's nest and I was going to be the fly in the web.
I heard the sloshing again and it sounded like it was getting closer to me and I felt a warm draft over me and that when I booked it and ran I fast as I could and ran up the stairs that was closest to me. I ran to the other floors I was now at floor 17 and I knew the thing was chasing after me. I was now hyperventilating and heart pounding I could hear roaring at the stair well I knew I had to run up to floor 1 and bust the door down as hard as I could I kept running tripping over everything in the dark and dirty as hell and covered in blood. I then ran up to the stairwell that went to floor 16 and of tripped and fell while on the stairwell to floor 16 and busted my head and blacked out and woke up in a spiderweb. I open my eyes and saw I had passed out and I was back on floor 18.
I knew I was doomed and I would never be found down here I was going to be this thing's meal a few hours had passed I kept struggling and struggling and could not get out of the web. I felt a warm draft on me and I felt as if I was being stabbed this thing was digging into me with it's fangs I felt I was done for. The pain of the thing digging it's fangs in me was unbearable and I was screaming. The thing was sucking my blood until it was dry. I was there in that web for god knows how long it had to be a very long time because I was dehydrated and very hungry. I was very weak and could not move much and could barley move my limbs but for some reason I began to slowly fall out of the web and broke free from the web and I got out of the web. I began to walk slowly to the stairwell that lead to the 17th floor and I climbed up the stairs slowly and when I was up on the 17th floor I walked around the floor for a while and I saw a place I could hide in from the thing there was a door and I open and there was a glowing light in the room I opened and the light was a light blub glowing and turned and lit up the room and I saw that I was in luck because there was 2 bottles of water on the shelfs in the small room I was in and a small bag of trail mix that was month passed its expiration date. I put a chair in front of the door so the thing would not get in.
I happily ate the trail mix and drank the 2 bottles of water and I put my ear on the door to see if I hear anything and when it was ready to go. I did not hear anything when I was putting ear my ear on the door at first but then a few hours had passed, and I heard a sniffing sound a faint growl. I tried to be as quiet as I could and hoped the chair in the door made where the thing could not get in the room with me, and I was no longer weak because I drank the water and ate the trail mix. I heard banging on the door the thing was trying to get in and get me. I had to think fast, and I saw a trap door and I opened and crawled into it as fast as I could. I was inside vents now and crawling and I heard the thing break down the door, but it was too big to get in the vents I was crawling in.
I began to crawl faster and found an exit to the vents, and it was on floor 15. I was now on floor 15 and the vents for some reason just collapsed right as when I crawled out of them, and I could not get back into the vents to get away from the thing. I heard the sound of the thing getting up to the floor I was at, and I booked it as fast as I could and ran up the stairwell to floor 14. I ran up more floors and I'm now on floor 12 and I fell as if this thing is catching up to me and I ran I fast as I could and kept running until I reached floor 11 and at floor 11 I grab a knife on the table and I kept running until I got to floor 10 and then on floor 10 I fell into a huge hole that was on the floor and the wood on the floor was rotting and I fell back into floor 11. I was catch up by the thing and was in its grasp and struggled to get out of it grasp and I then stabbed it in both of its eyes and it let go of me and it was screeching in pain. I ran back into the 10th floor and went around the hole and then went up into the others floor and at floor 7 I could hear it getting closer to me again but kept running as fast as I could and heart pounding.
I few more floors left, and I could pound the door down and get out of the basement. I was running and finally got up to floor 1 and began to violently pound down the door that was the entrance to the basement and I pounded as hard I could and I had super human strength from the adrenalin and I could hear the thing coming up the floors so I did one last super hard pound on the door with all my strength and busted a hole in the door and walked out the door and at last I was no longer in the basement of this damn mansion. I then ran out of the mansion and was finally outside and I kept running on the gravel path as fast as I could and then for a while, I finally found the fenced I had jumped and got over it and was back on the small 1 mile trail and collapsed on the ground where people saw me drenched in blood.
I then woke up in the hospital and the doctor said I was lucky and almost died from severe blood loss and I realized I had my daughter's phone in my pocket and cops were in the hospital room where I was at. I also saw my wife there too and she said where were you I called the cops and your boss said you were not at work, and he then called cops and I went all over the city looking for you and stayed up and it was on the news of you going missing and I'm glad you're okay and you are alive. I told them everything of what happened I told about the thing in the basement of abandon mansion in the woods and I would never go back to that place.
My wife told me her story and she told me that she looked everywhere in town for me and her first thought I was at the bar with my friends but then saw I was not there she said it was getting dark and I had to be home to or she would call the cops and she said I did not answer the phone and she got worried and called the cops. The cops came and began to search for me, and days had passed, and they did not find me so a whole search group came and looked for me and she said she looked around the city and she tried to look for me at the small park near the house and did not find me.
She said a cop was at a state park and saw a passed out person on the ground at a 1 mile trail which was me and the ambulance came and picked me up and got me to the hospital and then a cop was at the hospital and realized it was me as I was waking up.
A few months had passed and I was diagnosed with ptsd and I told my therapist everything.

2023.06.05 08:37 CateArmy69 Ranting about a one sided breakup

How to get over a one sided break up?
For context, I (29 M) and my ex (27 F) were of different race and religious backgrounds, we are both doctors from an Asian country. My Ex is currently living with her single mother and her sisters in the same city as me. She is also the eldest in the family (this will be important soon), despite that we tried our best to make our relationship work. Everything was smooth sailing until early Jan 2023, when my Ex Mom discovered our relationship when she snooped around my Ex's phone and her eyes went red. She threatened to disown my Ex, kick her out of the house, started smoking heavily and calling my Ex hurtful things.
We pretended to breakup so to satisfy her mother whimsical needs. However, the end goal is always for me to finally meet her mother and discuss regarding my relationship with her and making it official. However, my ex keeps dragging this issue and at one time I grown impatient and requested her to arrange a meeting with her mother because its hard to arrange a date with my ex due to her mother preying eyes + we are on LDR so we dont meet much anyways (i moved 3 hours away for work) + i am a bit jealous because my ex occasionally went out alone with a guy friend for despite me telling her that i am not comfortable with it .
This decision will cost me dearly
Fast forward 2 weeks, in commemoration of our 1st anniversary I brought my ex to a fancy dinner, went to a theme park, had an amazing sex and suddenly, she decided to break up at the end of the day claiming that she would always choose her family first instead of me and she wanted our last day to be the happiest day. I was blindsided and my heart sank, in a fit of rage, i said some hurtful things, accidentally raised my voice (we never fought before this), calling her selfish and unwilling to fight for me despite all i have done for her. Our breakup was messy and the next day we had another meeting and she communicated that her mother had been growing suspicious past few months, drinking heavily, calling her names. This worried her so she decided to breakup officially. I was unaware of this incident and apologize profusely for saying such hurtful things and asking for a chance and time to repair our relationship. I wanted her to move out from her house as i think she is being emotionally blackmailed by her mother, however she denied this wrongdoing but accepted the idea of giving our relationship a chance.
Unfortunately, for the past 2 weeks, i noticed her becoming colder, distant and more irritable than usual. She would cry every time when we're talking about the future of our relationship and had lingering trauma from our previous quarrel. I apologized and started to call her everyday to talk as per usual prior to our fight. Trying to treat her even better than before, sending her meals and buying her a gift to soothe her ailing heart. As fate had it, I received a sudden notice that i would be transferred to even far off city to work.
To reaffirm our relationship status due to the nature of our Long distance relationship. I cooked her a dinner and invited her for a heart to heart talk. Fortunately, this discussion is far more calmer than before. I reasserted that I still love her deeply and wants to change and fix this relationship by talking openly about both our problems and find a solution for that. My Ex acknowledged that maybe breaking up on our anniversary is not the best thing to do at the time. In spite of this, my Ex claimed her fell out of love with me after our big fight and her scar will forever never heal.
I suggested taking a break so that she can heal but she thinks that time would never heal her and she would only be wasting my time. In a way, she is absolute in her resolve and would not change her stance. I pleaded with her to fix the relationship and showed our pictures together to at least rekindle our passion for each other but alas it was to no avail.
In the end, we broke up amicably but I cant help to think it was one sided. She even requested us to continue being friends but it is something I am conflicted with.
Tell me reddit, I know I was also in the wrong, but did we had any chance to rescue the relationship at all?
Sorry for the long rambling

2023.06.05 08:36 zara713 My neighbor has been harassing me for years

Hi! This is going to be a long one. I鈥檓 a 19F and live with my parents in a townhome. Five years back a senile old rat moved in our townhome community, keep in mind his townhome is not the townhome next to me or even across me, it FIVE townhomes over! Well anyways, from the second the rat arrived my family has been harassed. The rat would tow our car for being parked in visitor parking so my grandmother who can鈥檛 even walk could have easier access to the front door. Because of this harassment my mom would confront the rat and this usally ended up in a blown up argument many times with a lot of cussing and the rat threatening to kill my mom! Fun right?! Mind you this was when I was 13-14, now I鈥檓 almost 20 years old and still there is no stoping the senile nut sac. However recently the harassment has been towards me instead of mom. The other day I was parking my car in my garage when all of the sudden this rat comes up to my garage stares at me for 2mins and flashes his flashlight on me. I literally didn鈥檛 do anything this whole time I just sat there and smiled at him . A week later I鈥檓 gardening and all the sudden the rat comes behind me and stares at me and this is when I give him a ugly look. A couple mins later he parks his car infront of my garden and stares again. These e count ours really pissed me off so I decided to install three security cameras including one door bell camera. From my doorbell camera I learned that this rat came to the shared lawn infront of my house every morning around 3-4am made his dog shit there not pick it up and then leave . The first day the rat didn鈥檛 notice the ring camera up and let his dog shit per usual but the second day he realized there was a camera and kept staring at it without letting his dog shit this time. I didn鈥檛 say anything or even report him. But then last night the rat stared at the camera on my door and flashed his flashy light so it reflected and created a glare (everythi is recorded). He did this for around a min and then left. At this point I鈥檓 fucking pissed. Should I call the cops now? You鈥檙e probably like yea duh but here鈥檚 the thing every time we call them they say the same shit 鈥on鈥檛 antigonize him and call us if he does it again . At this point I have no idea what to fucking do. Any advice would be great. I also wanted to note that mnay if my neighbors have also called the police on him and they still don鈥檛 do shit. He literally had pulled a gun in one of my neighbors as well and still nothing. Also another note none of my security cameras face his house 鈥e comes in the middle of the night to our house to do all this shit..

2023.06.05 08:34 TheTim The Tough Reality of Running an Independent Retail Shop in Downtown Everett [LONG!]

The Tough Reality of Running an Independent Retail Shop in Downtown Everett [LONG!]

exterior of Chai Cupboard, with a large replica Moai
It's been just over two years since my wife and I opened the doors at Chai Cupboard, our loose leaf tea and spice shop in downtown Everett, and I thought it would be a good time to share how things are going for our little mom and pop shop. Can we call ourselves a mom and pop shop if we're only in our 40s? Whatever, I'm going for it.
In short: It has been and continues to be difficult!

Starting up

Let's start with what it took just to open our doors. We spent about $32,000 of our own money (no investments, no loans) to start up. This included things like buying the initial inventory, all our jars and other supplies, furniture, and putting in new flooring.
Finding a good location in downtown Everett was a challenge. It seemed like every space we looked at was either way too large (2,000+ square feet), way too expensive ($2,000+ a month), or both. The space we eventually landed in is around 1,100 square feet and costs us just under $1,800 a month. Plus electricity and gas. Plus parking. Plus basic building maintenance, repairs, and real estate taxes. You would think that those last few things should be the responsibility of the landlord that owns the building, but this particular landlord owns such a large portion of downtown Everett that they are able to dictate the terms of the lease to dramatically favor them and there's basically nothing you can do about it. Fun!

Keeping the lights on

Okay, so let's talk about ongoing costs. All together, running the shop five days a week, we need to make about $100 a day in profit to pay our basic bills. That means we need around $200 a day in sales to break even after paying for our inventory and other supplies. So far in 2023 we're making an average of $117 per day in sales. That's up from $100 per day during the same period in 2022, but still far short of where we need to be in order just to break even鈥攁nd these figures are with no employees, just us (mostly my wife) running the shop entirely by ourselves. If we wanted to hire just a single employee at $20 an hour for 20 hours a week, the wages, taxes, and other costs would add up to another $2,000 a month or more than $100 a day.
All of this means that we're putting about another $1,500 into the shop every month out of our pocket to keep the doors open. To date we have made around $55,000 in revenue, but spent a total of about $128,000, meaning that over $70,000 has come directly out of our pocket to try to make this work.

Expanding our horizons

Since it has been difficult selling enough loose-leaf tea and spices to make ends meet, we have been working on a few different ideas to try to bring in more money. The biggest of these plans was to open a full tea bar, serving things like tea lattes and iced tea. Unfortunately, our space is not equipped with the proper kitchen to obtain the necessary permits from the health department.
Our landlord was open to letting us pay to upgrade their space (how generous of them!) and we were able to get a grant from the city for about $16,000 that we thought would cover the plumbing improvements and appliances we would need. Unfortunately again, once we opened up the walls we discovered that the existing drainage was nowhere near sufficient for the amount of sinks the health department requires. Fixing this would require considerably more work than we originally expected, including cutting a trench into the concrete floor. Between the extra drainage work and the extreme inflation that ratcheted up the cost of everything else while we tried to figure it all out, the total cost of the project ballooned to over $50,000. We applied for a second grant in hopes of still moving forward, but were denied. So the full tea bar idea is dead unless we find a whole new location with a proper restaurant kitchen, which would of course have much higher rent, somewhat negating the benefit of opening the tea bar at all.

Thankfully as long as we only serve hot tea in a to-go cup, we are not classified by the health code as a "food establishment," so we can still do that without all of the extra sinks. We have been able to set up three tea brewers on a custom stand that I built out of hardwood, and at least provide a basic cup of tea to-go.

Building the physical and digital space

Speaking of building furniture, the shop has given me a good excuse to spend some quality time with my woodworking tools. I built our custom shelves that hold all the jars, as well as the custom main counter, and I'm quite pleased with how they all turned out.

Surprisingly, building physical objects like the furniture has been easier than building things in the digital space. While we have had a basic website set up since before we opened, building a proper online shop has been a bit of a pain. Aside from the challenge of synchronizing all of our inventory with an online storefront, to get it properly set up we need to take individual photos of all 200+ of the teas and spices we sell, which is a daunting task.
Once we do get the online side of the store set up with all the photos, another idea we've had to increase sales is to set up a tea sampler subscription box, but the economics of subscription boxes is pretty rough. There are competitors in the space that sell a tea box for $20 that includes shipping. It would be difficult for us to make and ship a box of teas for less than $20 in actual cost to us.

So, what's next?

We have really enjoyed running the shop, learning more about teas and spices, and meeting all the lovely people who have come in over the past two years. To date we have had nearly 2,000 customers, about 25% of which are repeat customers. We have had zero problems with crime, and only one unpleasant run-in with an individual having a drug-induced psychotic episode. Downtown Everett is a great location, and we love the increasing number of events that are happening downtown like Sorticulture, Salty Sea Days, and the Wintertide Festival & Market.
We're convinced that our shop is a valuable addition to Everett, but it's tough to keep pouring thousands of dollars into it every single month, and to be so far away from even being able to hire a single person to help out. It is beginning to feel like running a small independent retail shop in downtown Everett may not be viable with the current cost of rent, lack of significant downtown foot traffic, and most people's default mode of shopping online first. We've still got over a year on our current lease, so we're going to continue trying to make this work, but looking around at the other businesses downtown, it's easy to see why they're mostly restaurants, breweries/bars, coffee shops, or retailers who have been around forever and own their own building.
And of course, I haven't even mentioned the other big complicating factor: In just a few weeks we're having a baby! This means we're going to have to dramatically cut back how many hours the shop is even open, due to the aforementioned inability to afford to hire any additional help.
Anyway, if you fancy some tea, stop on by! We're at 2809 Colby in downtown Everett. And if you have some brilliant idea for how to make this type of business actually turn a profit, please drop me a line and share it!

2023.06.05 08:32 picklechick84 Just a couple of my pet peeves

I have some pet peeves that I'd like to complain about. Enjoy, and let me know if these things bug the hell out of you too!
  1. People who go the wrong way against clearly marked directions. Examples: Going against the arrow in the parking lot, using the exit door to enter, cutting through the uscan area when entering the store instead of going around. I hate this so much. These things are clearly marked and are there to keep traffic moving in an orderly fashion. When you walk into the store through the exit door, you're in the way of people trying to leave. When you cut through the uscans, you're in the way of people trying to checkout so they can leave. Go the direction the signs tell you to damnit! They're there for a reason!
  2. Drivers who think they own the road. You know what I mean. They're speeding and tailgating and weaving through traffic as if I'm in their way. Excuse me, but you're not more important than anyone else out here, and wherever you're going will still be there if you arrive two minutes later. We all have places to be and your effort to be first in line is pointless and dangerous. Also, I wish I had a link, but I saw something where they had two people drive to the same place, one person obeying all traffic laws, and the other trying to get there as fast as possible. The fast as possible guy got there only like 3-5 minutes sooner than the law abiding guy. Is five minutes really that important to you that you're willing to risk all our lives? Get over yourself and slow the fuck down!
  3. Obnoxiously loud engines. Maybe I'm missing something, maybe some vehicles require something that makes them obnoxiously loud in order to function properly, but I somehow doubt it. I also doubt that you need to advertise the volume of your engine while going through a tunnel or waiting at a red light. Your vehicle is already eye catching, you don't need to rev it up to get us to look at you. When we do look, it's out of annoyance, trust me, we aren't looking with envy! Also, we usually assume you're lacking in some other area.
  4. People who are rude to or yell at cashiers. As a former retail employee, let me assure you that whatever is pissing you off, it is NOT the fault of the poor cashier you're harassing, and they probably can't fix it either, without having to track down a manager, causing everyone to wait on account of your dumb ass. You picked up bleach that was on sale and it's ringing up full price, so you start getting loud with the cashier, even though there was a sign (not made by the cashier) indicating that the brand next to the one you picked up is the one on sale (not set by the cashier), and you want the sale price (which they can't give you because that shits been set to ring up that way, they can't bend the register to their will). (And if they could, they wouldn't because you're being an asshole and treating them like shit.)
I think the common theme of my pet peeves in entitlement. I really can't stand someone who thinks they're above and beyond, that whatever they've got going on should take priority over what everyone else has got going on, when they're no more than an NPC like the rest of us. Get the fuck over yourselves and realize that everyone is going through shit and doing the best they can, instead of trying to force yourself to the front of the heard of cows on their way to slaughter.
Freaking dumbasses.

A good friend of mine wants me to get licensed to sell manufactured homes for him? Am I able to do this while being a MLO? Most homes he sells, the buyers park them at trailer parks. He already has banks lined up that finance his deals. I can鈥檛 do these loans for the obvious that they are not attached to a piece of land.
