[Game Preview] Week 3 - Cincinnati Bengals (0-2) at Philadelphia Eagles(0-2)

2020.09.25 20:35 Rsubs33 [Game Preview] Week 3 - Cincinnati Bengals (0-2) at Philadelphia Eagles(0-2)

Cincinnati Bengals (0-2) at Philadelphia Eagles (0-2)
The Eagles are off to their worst start with a real coach since 2003 (I consider 2013-2015 non-existent) when they also dropped their first two games of the season. The team would like a repeat of that season where following a week 3 bye,the team rebounded to defeat the Bills 23-13. The Eagles ripped off 12 wins in their remaining 14 games following their 0-2 start. Maybe the Eagles will be able to do the same, but they will have to shake the injury bug first. The Eagles will be without first round pick Jalen Raegor this week who underwent surgery on his hand to repair a torn UC ligament in his thumb. The Eagles may also be without Fletcher Cox who is dealing with an oblique injury. The Cox injury should be watched closely if he can’t go, Joe Mixon and Joe Burrow will have a much easier day against the struggling defense. Last week against the Rams, the defense was under prepared and unable to stop anyone. The Rams took advantage of Jim Schwartz’s consistently odd decision to have his CBs, play so far off the line of scrimmage, giving a free release to the WRs and allowing easy short passes. If Schwartz does the same this week, it will be another long day for the Eagles defense and a great fantasy day for Tyler Boyd, who Bengals Joe Burrow connected with 7 times last week including 1 for a TD. On the other side of the ball Doug and Carson will both need to be better than the last two weeks. For Carson, he needs to get out of his own head and play with confidence. For Doug, he needs to find some creativity and help his 5th year QB. He would do well to get Carson moving and utilize the RBs more in the flat and screen game. However, if we see more of the same we saw in weeks 1 and 2 from the Eagles coaching staff, we should expect another loss. Hopefully that is not the case and Carson and the coaches can learn from their mistakes in weeks 1-2 and pull our a win this week. Go Birds!

Recap from Last Week’s Games.
Eagles - The Eagles' struggles continued in their home opener against the Los Angeles Rams. An early fumble by Miles Sanders led to a Rams touchdown by Tyler Higbee. After the Eagles cut their deficit to four with a Jake Elliott field goal, Los Angeles responded with a Robert Woods touchdown run followed by a second Higbee touchdown catch. Trailing 21-3, the Eagles closed the deficit to five points by halftime with touchdown runs by Wentz and Sanders. After forcing a three-and-out on the Rams' first possession of the second half, the Eagles would drive to the Los Angeles 21, only for Wentz's first down pass to be picked off by Darious Williams, turning the momentum back in the Rams' favor as they would outscore the Eagles 16-3 the rest of the way. Despite not being sacked once during the game, Wentz finished the day with a 56.5 passer rating, completing 26 of 43 passes for 242 yards and two interceptions. The 37-19 blowout loss dropped Philadelphia to 0-2 for the first time since the 2015 season, and marked the Eagles' first home opener loss since that same season. It was also the first home loss to the Rams franchise since the opener of the 2001 season.
Bengals - After losing their regular season-opening game at home, the Bengals then traveled to Cleveland to face the Browns for Battle of Ohio Round 1. In the first quarter, the Bengals scored first when Randy Bullock kicked a 38-yard field goal to make it 3-0. Though, the Browns took the lead when Nick Chubb ran for an 11-yard TD to make it 7-3. In the second quarter, the Browns went up by double digits when Baker Mayfield found O'dell Beckham Jr. on a 43-yard TD pass to make it 14-3. The Bengals then came within 4 after Joe Burrow found C.J. Uzomah on a 23-yard TD pass to make it 14-10. Mayfield then found Kareem Hunt on a 6-yard TD pass to put the Browns up by double digits, 21-10. The Bengals closed out the half when Randy Bullock kicked a 43-yard field goal to make it 21-13 at halftime. In the third quarter, the Browns went back up by double digits when Chubb ran for a 1-yard TD to make it 28-13. The Bengals drew closer with Bullock's 27-yard field goal to make it 28-16. In the fourth quarter, the Bengals were able to get within 5 when Burrow found Mike Thomas on a 4-yard TD pass to make the score 28-23. Though, the Browns would go back up by double digits yet again when Hunt punched the ball in for a 1-yard TD to make it 35-23. The Bengals wrapped up the scoring when Burrow found Tyler Boyd on a 9-yard TD pass to make the final score 35-30.

Stats to Know
QB Adjusted Completion %
What’s one thing rookie Joe Burrow and 5th-year Carson Wentz have in common? They have not been terribly accurate so far. PFF has an Adjusted Completion % stat that accounts for clear drops, spikes, throw aways, batted passes, and throws made while getting hit. Burrow and Wentz are near the bottom in AC%, with 70.4 and 70.3, respectively. Interesting to note a bit of the distribution within the array of aforementioned stats: while Burrow has had one of the lower rates of on-target passes dropped by the receiver (4.1%), Wentz doubled that at 8.4%, good for 5th-highest. Yes, Wentz has stunk, but...
Matchups to Watch
Rookie versus Veteran, Which QB Has Poise Down 0-2?
With two consecutive weeks of porous defense from both the Eagles and Bengals defensive units, this Sunday's matchup should rest squarely on the shoulders of each offensive unit. Will the Eagles be able to rely on fifth year starter Wentz? Will he be able to shake off two tumultuous weeks and put together a consistent offensive performance? Will the Bengals weapons coalesce around their rookie Burrow? Will he be able to put together his first complete NFL game and demonstrate that this season is the turning point for the franchise? A big piece of Wentz stabilizing his game time performance will be continuing his focus on short-time-to-throw plays. From Week 1 with 8 sacks versus the Washington Football Team to Week 2 and zero sacks versus the Rams with the vaunted Aaron Donald, the Eagles Offensive Line and Wentz’ pocket choices resulted in less lost yards and broken plays. Unfortunately, key turnovers again forced short-yardage scoring situations and massive tempo swings. Wentz needs to take advantage of the cleaner pocket that will likely be available versus the Bengals (2 sacks on the year so far) and finish drives cleanly to put the game away. Without rookie WR Jalen Reagor (placed on IR with a thumb injury after Week 2), Wentz will have to make use of the remainder of his threats, including veteran DeSean Jackson who had 6 catches on 9 targets for 64 yards against the superior Rams’ defensive backfield. Joe Burrow has had the classic introductory NFL QB experience. A high-flying game versus the Browns last week, with 300+ yards passing, 3TDs and zero ints was fantastic bounce back from Week 1 versus the Chargers. 193 yards, 0 TDs, and an int will not win the game for the Bengals versus the Eagles, even if Wentz struggles. A key focus for Burrow will be settling into the routine and relationships he’s formed with his offensive weapons. AJ Green remains one of the best WR threats in the NFL and his slow start to the season (8 catches for 80 yards) could end at any time, in any game with a QB like Burrow. Burrow threw a nearly record setting number of passes during the almost-come-from-behind loss versus the Browns; if the Bengals are able to establish their run-game and abuse the Philadelphia secondary in a similar way to the Rams offensive scheme, then Burrow could have a very big day. If he is forced to drop back 60+ times, and Joe Mixon is again held under 75 yards on the ground, the Bengals and Burrow may have a hard time. Keep an eye on how comfortable each QB is feeling, and whether they can establish good tempo. That will be key to offensive production this weekend.
Coaching Conundrum; Pederson versus Taylor
At the core of the NFL these days is the combat between offensive and defensive schemes. Both coaches come from a background of coaching QB play and offensive schemes, though from different eras and coaching trees. How they go about using that experience to enable their teams to a secure a necessary win this week will make or break their seasons. Doug Pederson, at the helm of a revamped offensive coaching tree with the addition of Quarterbacks Coach Press Taylor as Passing Game Coordinator, has had a rough three year stretch of offensive stumbles. Since the miraculous Super Bowl 52 season (2017), the Eagles have consistently failed to be productive, with a lot of the challenges relating to lack of roster depth and poor player improvement through misaligned coaching. This is the third consecutive year of stuttering offense to begin the season and a big piece of the matchup versus the Bengals will be how well the Eagles can settle in. Coach Pederson has made it clear that the lack of full-speed off-season practice plays a big role in the Eagle’s struggles so far; so it remains to be seen when and if both units can make use of this gametime practice to solidify the small flashes of prior success we’ve seen. Opposite Pederson is Coach Taylor, in his second year of a complete rebuild, now with the (ideally career-long) franchise WB in Burrow. Hailing from the Shanahan line, through the LA Rams McVay, Taylor was brought into Cincinnati to recreate the organization’s coaching structure and form a new core for the team around veteran WR AJ Green. The 2019 season showed marked improvement throughout, particularly in run production and passer protection; the addition of Covid-related practice limitations have also taken their toll on the Bengals’ preparations for this season, as exemplified by the Week 1 drubbing by the Ravens. Taylor returns this season with second-year offensive coordinator Brian Callahan, formerly the QB coach for the Raiders. The cerebral talent in the Bengals organization is clearly arrayed around giving Burrow the best possible chance to shine; and they may just do so against an extremely poorly performing Eagles defense. Being able to establish consistent offensive strength and consistency throughout this season will be a key part of whether this new coaching structure is able to flourish in Cincinnati or if yet more change is needed to remake the franchise. During game day, keep an eye out on how these coaches make use of their star players, now that the very early season yips and stumbles should be behind them. Whoever can appropriately adjust to the flow of the game and take advantage of the others mistakes will win this football game.
The Big Punt: How Special Teams Makes An Impact
Kevin versus Cameron, Huber versus Johnston, two players that may very well decide the nature of this Bengals versus Eagles matchup. These titans of the turf, two punters to rule them all, and two punters to pin them deep; two punters waiting on call, and two punters to make fans weep. In lieu of offensive production, and in hopes of good defensive play, Kevin Huber and Cameron Johnston bring their punting prowess to Lincoln Financial Field this Sunday. Hailing from opposite sides of the Earth, Huber from Cincinnati itself, and Johnston from Geelong Australia, these two are some of the most capable foot-based deliverers of the football to opposing teams. Huber holds nearly all of the Bengals franchise records in punting statistics; and Johnston holds the highest gross and net punting averages in a single Eagles season. The third year Australian punter is known by Eagles fans for his insanely long hang-time and penchant for pinning the NY Giants inside the 20 (20+ times in four games). Huber is loved by the Bengals fanbase as both their longest tenured player and his consistency over the past 13 years. He has missed just 2 of 180 possible games, and has been perennially top 10 at his position. Both players are in the final year of their contracts, so effective performance is a must for maximum salary gains. Keep an eye out on how effective these two are in establishing and keeping good field position. If both teams are struggling for consistency, these swings may be the key to a late drive that puts the game away. Additionally, with every punt comes the magic of a muffed punt return. If you’re a particular connoisseur of special teams play, watch and see if these punters add any special spin or location to their strikes; and key turnover last week in this position kept the Eagles hopeful. Maybe lightning will strike twice for the Eagles Special Teams and the Wizard with the Large Leg, Cam Johnston; maybe the Bengals gunners will scoop up a muff and Huber will be huger than expected. Stay tuned!

2020.09.11 17:32 Rsubs33 [Game Preview] Week 1 - Philadelphia Eagles(0-0) at Washington Football Team (0-0)

Philadelphia Eagles (0-0) at the Washington Football Team
The 2020 Philadelphia Eagles season is the franchise's 88th season in the National Football League and the fifth under head coach Doug Pederson. The Eagles will try to improve on their 9–7 record from 2019 where they made the playoffs, but lost in the NFC Divisional game against the Seattle Seahawks. They will begin that journey Sunday afternoon as they take a trip down 95 to face off against the division rival with a new name Washington Football Team. To go with the name they also have a new coach in Ron Rivera who is looking for a fresh start after spending the last nine years as the Head Coach of the Carolina Panthers. Rivera inherits a defense that has 4 first round picks on the defensive line that will be facing off against an injury riddled offensive line of the Eagles as they will be without starting LT Andre Dillard and starting All-Pro RG Brandon Brooks. The Eagles bought back former LT Jason Peters who will look to protect Carson Wentz’s blind side. IF the Eagles OL is able to give Wentz time, he proved last year against the WTF that he has great chemistry with Jackson who has torched his former team in the past. Defensively Eagles fans will get their first look at their revamped secondary which will include Pro Bowler Darius Slay and Jalen Mills at safety. They will look to keep Terry McLaurin under control as he burnt the Eagles secondary in both games last season with long TDs. If the Eagles can get a lead early, I think their defense should be able to keep Dwayne Haskins under control and force the second year QB into some turnovers. Always fun to start the season vs a division rival and happy to have some football again in these crazy times. Go Birds!

Eagles 37 - Washington Football Team 27
The Eagles looked to keep their playoff hopes alive and and opened up the scoring with a Jake Elliot FG in the first quarter. The lead was short lived as Dwayne Haskins hooked up with Terry McLaurin for a 75 yard touchdown pass. The Eagles went into half-time trailing 10-14, but took back the lead in the 3rd quarter on a Miles Sanders TD reception that put the Eagles up 17-14. The Eagles and Washington Football Team traded TD passes in the 4th quarter before the Washington Football Team regained the league with a pair of Dustin Hopkins FGs put the Washington Football Team's up 24-27. Carson Wentz answered the call leading the Eagles on a four and half minute 75 yard touchdown drive that culminated in a Greg Ward TD reception. The Eagles defense forced a fumble on the ensuing drive which was returned for a TD by Nigel Bradham for a nail in the coffin putting the Eagles up 10 with no time on the clock to give the Eagles the win.

PFF Stats to Know
Play Action Passing
[Threshold = QBs with at least 20% snap count of the QB with the highest snap count of Play Action for the season] In the 2019-2020 season, no QB had a worse completion rate via Play Action than WFT’s Dwayne Haskins at 54.9% and only 2 others had worse such Passer Rating. For comparison, the Eagles’ Carson Wentz was at the top of the bottom 3rd in both metrics. Whereas has Wentz fared near the top of Play Action % of snaps during his NFL tenure and his completion % and Passer Rating have both ranked near the top in each of ‘16-‘18, in 2019 he did not do well in that respect. How Wentz performs in Play Action with injuries at the OL and WR positions, as well as how much the coaching staff will even ask him to turn his back to this particular DL and keep it...I’m not sure.
Matchups to Watch
Washington Defensive Line vs Eagles Offensive Line
NFL battles always start in the trenches and this is perhaps the biggest advantage the WFT has against the Eagles in this Week 1 tilt. Washington always had a formidable front that lead to intriguing battles between the two teams but the addition of Chase Young and the injuries the Eagles have already sustained make this match up concerning for Philly. The Eagles projected Week 1 starting OL prior to the injuries was, from left to right: Dillard, Seumalo, Kelce, Brooks, and Lane Johnson. Now, the Eagles will start: Peters, Seumalo, Kelce, TBD, TBD. Lane Johnson has practiced everyday this week in a limited capacity which makes me believe that he'll start but it's an uneasy feeling knowing he's working his way back from injury too. The logical guess at RG is Matt Pryor, but they've also tried out Nate Herbig in practice. Either way, the Eagles have a massive downgrade at RG with Brandon Brooks out. Fortunately, the Eagles may have accidentally upgraded in the short term with Jason Peters at LT but the depth in the trenches is already spread too thin. The Eagles are lucky to be as deep as they are on the OL given they aren't totally screwed (yet) but the current state of line makes this a very formidable match up for the Football Team (get a damn team name, jerks) to take advantage of. Additionally, they aren't just deep at EDGE, they are deep at DT as well. Payne, Allen, and Ioannidis are very stout and capable of dominating opposing OLs. Washington's roster is very thin but it isn't on the defensive line. They have more than enough ammunition to put the Eagles in difficult situations. This mismatch will force the coaching staff to be creative in their run designs and how they give help to the OL in pass protection.
Washington Secondary vs Eagles Passing Attack
The Eagles much beleaguered WR room went through a mini-makeover in the offseason and a lot of new, young, and fast faces were added to the mix. What they lack in proven talent, outside of DeSean Jackson's return, they make up for in athleticism. One thing Howie Roseman said this offseason was he was frustrated with the lack of speed on the team. It took him a while to understand that athleticism does matter. It's not just that the new group of receivers are fast, but they all have strong overall athletic profiles. But as previously mentioned, this is an unproven group going up against a very weak opposition. WFT brought back Kendall Fuller this offseason, who was a real good jack-of-all-trades player in the secondary for the Chiefs last season. His status for Sunday is questionable given his limited participation this week in practice. Opposite him is former Eagles favorite Ronald Darby. If I'm Doug Pederson, I make it a point to go after him all day. Even when Darby is at his best, which isn't often these days, he has absolutely zero ball skills. Washington may play Fabian Moreau if Fuller can't go, which is another defender the Eagles should target. Jimmy Moreland and Landon Collins are quality players, more so the latter, but they can't hide the deficiencies that should be easily exploitable by the Eagles. Remember, Philly put up over 30 in week 15 last year with less in the WR room than they currently have against a secondary that really isn't better than it was then. If Jalen Reagor is able to go, that would add another dimension to this offense the Eagles have lacked for a long time. If the Eagles can do a good enough job slowing down Washington's front, they are more than capable of picking apart a subpar secondary. And I didn't even talk about Ertz and Goedert! Or Miles Sanders through the air!
Washington Offensive Line vs Eagles Defensive Line
Despite the current injury limitations on the Eagles defensive line, this is a matchup that heavily favors the Eagles. Haskins finished 2019 on a positive note in his last 3 starts prior to his ankle injury; one thing he's never been known for is his pocket ability and ability to avoid taking sacks. Put a statue behind a bad offensive line and you are going to have issues. Trent Williams is now gone having finally forced his way out and his logical replacement, rookie Shaadiq Charles, isn't likely to play in week 1. Wes Martin, their starting left guard, is a below average player himself. The only player on the Washington Football Team's offensive line that is good is Brandon Scherff. While the Eagles aren't 100% on the defensive line, they are one of the few teams in the NFL with likely more talent and depth on their defensive line than the Washington Football Team's. Barnett has been limited in practice and has missed the last few weeks with another injury and his status is questionable while Hargrave is likely to miss a couple games as well. The Eagles still have Fletcher Cox, Brandon Graham, the return of Malik Jackson, and a lot more to throw at this beleaguered unit. Additionally, this is a defensive front that is always stingy against the run under Jim Schwartz even when the DL isn't at peak health. There are a lot of matchups to exploit and Schwartz has a lot of options to exploit them. For his faults as a coordinator with secondary scheming, Schwartz is a God at maximizing the talents of his pass rushers. Given the current state of the Washington OL and Haskins own difficulties under pressure, this is a juicy match up for Philly.
Washington Passing Attack vs Eagles Pass Defense
Washington is incredibly thin and young at the skill positions but that isn't the sort of thing that has deterred the Eagles from allowing big plays in the past. This is a secondary, and really a pass defense in general, that went through a major shake up this offseason and for good reason. The Eagles defense was pretty average per DVOA which was encouraging given what they had, but they consistently allowed big play after big play in 2019. Opposing WR1s absolutely shredded Philadelphia last season as they were automatic monsters against an overmatched, elementary secondary. Darius Slay and NRC were added to the mix and should provide immediate help to this unit. Avonte Maddox will start at CB2; while this is an iffy move, the additions of Slay and NRC should allow the Eagles to help him out a bunch. The Eagles finally have players that can play in man coverage and one of the best CBs in the league in shadow coverage. Schwartz has admitted that he will allow Slay to shadow receivers but likely not 100% of the time. This makes sense as it should be a matchup-specific thing... this is that time. Furthermore, allowing Slay to shadow receivers will lead to considerable scheme changes on defense as they can't play the coverages they've played the last four years while shadowing receivers. What does this look like and how quickly does it come together? Terry McLaurin is the only real commodity at receiver for Washington and he's a tremendous talent. Even when he was the only real receiving threat last year, he still tore the Eagles apart. Another major change for the Eagles is in the safety room with the departure of Malcolm Jenkins. The Eagles added Will Parks to the room but he will miss the first 3 weeks due to injury. They also retained Rodney McLeod; this could be a good thing or bad thing depending on which Rodney shows up. If another year away from knee surgery helps, then he'll be fine. But if last year's version shows up then the Eagles have a big problem. Lastly, the Eagles will be starting Jalen Mills at safety. Apparently, the cure for being a bad cornerback is a position switch to safety despite never playing it in the NFL. All that being said, the middle of the defense is slower and more unknown than it has ever been. LB1 is Nate Gerry. LB2 is Duke Riley. Mills is the new Jenkins. Will Parks is out. Does McLeod have enough left in the tank? Offenses are fast and innovative; the Skins lack a lot of talent on offense but their new offensive scheme could lead to some issues in the middle of the Eagles defense. If I'm Washington, I lean heavily on motions and play action to confuse the middle of the Eagles defense. Get guys who struggle to cover to cover your athletic RBs then take plenty of shots to Terry McLaurin. The Eagles are clearly better at CB than they've been in years but have considerable question marks in the Safety and in the LB rooms as it pertains to pass defense. Better CBs should lead to better pass defense overall but there are matchups to take advantage of. Washington might not be the best team to fully exploit these weaknesses, but they could.

2020.09.04 20:34 Chemical-Voyage Some excessively strange dreams from my dream log you might enjoy! Let me know what y'all think.

----
(6/12-13/2018)
Ben and I are in our house. Something seems off (I don't remember what), and I repeatedly ask him if I’m in a dream or not. As a test, I try to jump and "float," and it works well enough to convince me that I am indeed dreaming.
Upon becoming lucid in a dream, the first thing I try to do is fly. And whenever I become lucid ‘in my house’, I try to fly over the stairs,
gain speed,
and
smash headlong
through the front door.
As you might imagine, such a technique works poorly. If I remember next time, I'll try a different method (like walking out through the front door first and then trying to fly).
----
(7/3-4/2018)
I’m driving up to Glacier National Park to go hiking…
…I stop and try to find cough syrup at a store, but they’re all out. Multiple slips of paper sit where the syrup had been, bearing the names and contact information of people who have reserved a bottle for when it’s restocked.
I had spent too much time in the store. I’m late for my ship — a ship that will sail northward along the west coast of Montana. I make it onto the ship in time…
...I jump off the ship into the ocean. (I don't remember why.) Upon landing, I discover that
the ocean is made of cloth.
Waves are merely folds of fabric. The sky is a solid black. Other ships turn on their searchlights and begin looking for me. I don’t want to be caught, so I pull some of the cloth over myself and hide from them…
----
(7/2-3/2018)
I’m at pool inside the Highlands Ranch tennis bubble with Ben and his friends. All of us are given guns.
We walk out onto a field. Someone is throwing soccer balls onto the field for us to shoot. Ben follows a bear with a shotgun. I tell him not to shoot it. We follow the bear off the field, up some steps, and around a tree. After another turn, we ascend another set of steps; they lead right into the second story of an old house filled with dusty sunlight. We find the bear in a room atop the stairs to the right. It’s in bed, sick. It has pink slippers and a pink nightgown on...
----
(7/13-14/2018)
I walk through a hotel and come to a large amphitheater-type movie theater. When I'm in the theater, it's dark outside — the theater is on the moon. People are riding bikes down a steep dirt hill in front of the screen. When I walk back out through the door, I’m in the hotel again.
----
(7/19/2018)
I move into a new dorm room. My new bed is just a sleeping bag set on a smooth, steeply-angled slab of wood. It’s claustrophobic. Is it underwater? Blue light filters in.
----
(7/28/2018)
I’m at a school English event. Bri is mad at me — is she jealous about something?
... I’m attending a movie with my class in an indoor movie theater. I notice that the chairs are tethered to the ceiling with strings. The chairs (including the one I’m sitting in) begin to swing in a large circle high above the floor.
At the top of the chair's swing trajectory is a mountain area. Snow covers the ground near a small river. People fish.
There are metal bars in the sky, painted red.
I grab a rope and swing towards them. I pass through the bars to find myself on a dark city street near a dock. I think it’s New York. The professor from Futurama stands there as Zoidberg is picked on by another creature. He runs away, then mutates and becomes larger. He runs back and guts the other creature.
... I’m in church. I fish for dusty coins under a table near a window. Stale mid-morning light filters in.
-----
(Unrecorded date)
I get into a fight with the Johnsons and am subsequently sent to a fighting camp. While there, Ben and I are made to sleep on small cots in cramped quarters. I try to steal another guy’s bed before a group of girls invites me to their bed. Upon getting into their bed, I enter an entirely new world. Soon, I find myself on a tropical island beach and turn to see a large concrete expanse, marking the entrance to a beach resort. To make it through the resort, it is imperative that I transform into a black man. (I don't remember why, but it was clear to me in the dream.) On the other side of the resort, the weather changes. I sit atop a derelict brick chimney and look out over a snowy canyon filled with cozy cottages. It’s a very nice view. (This is all in the girls' bed!)
----
(Unrecorded date)
I find myself in the middle of the ocean on some kind of giant structure (not unlike an oil rig) with a large pool of water in the middle of it. On a giant deck over the pool, large tiles shift to let airplanes, cars, and pedestrians move at certain times. (This is hard to explain.) Huge planes roll across the deck and are dumped into the large pool of water where I am, often barely missing me. Some of the planes miss the pool and fall straight into the ocean miles below.
The structure, previously held up by supports, is now flying slowly over the clouds. I'm being held captive here. A woman is guarding me and won’t allow me to leave. Some part of me recognizes that I'm dreaming and wouldn’t die if I just jumped off — perhaps I'll make a parachute materialize on my back. I run to the edge of the deck
and jump into thin air, miles above the earth.
I curl into a ball to fall faster...
...I fall through the clouds...

(1/25-26/2019)
I learn of a girl who is suffering from a recently discovered disease. It's currently incurable and quite deadly, but I believe I can help her. I meet with her and we discuss her symptoms so that I can form a plan of action. She dies the next day. I soon realize that I have caught the disease and will die within a week (this is absolutely certain).
I usually try to look at death in a peaceful light. In the dream, however, I am not able to accept death in a dignified way. The idea of impending oblivion is deeply hopeless, terrifying, and sad.
My thoughts are strangled by panic.
I can't die now - it's too soon! I didn't have enough warning! I'm still so young...

(2/2-3/2019)
I’m lying on a towel by a pool with Cassie and holding her as if we're still in a relationship. Suddenly, I remember that I broke up with her months ago. I get up, feeling terrible. I know that I could be with her again if I wanted (in the dream), but I remember how happy I've been without her in my life. I try to explain that I had forgotten about the breakup and that this doesn't mean we're together again. She sobs...
...Ben, Elizabeth, and I are running down a wide wooden boardwalk suspended far in the air. I mention that there are no boardwalks like these in Montana. As we run along, the boardwalk becomes more disheveled. Now we frequently have to jump across sizable gaps to avoid falling to the pavement below. The boardwalk descends until it's only about 10 feet off the ground. It’s cloudy out at this point (it had been very sunny earlier). We come to another large gap, and I tease Elizabeth, saying that someone had fallen here just last week. I pretend to push her, and she actually loses her balance. As she falls towards the gap, Ben and I try to push her hard enough to make her land on the other side of the gap. This doesn't work, and she falls through. As soon as she hits the ground,
her legs shatter and mangle
in a way that shouldn't have been possible from that height. What the fuck is happening? Her left leg breaks completely in half at the knee and lies in two pieces. Blood spurts everywhere as if from a hose. She's bleeding out, fast. She screams and cries in simultaneous terror and agony. Ben also begins to scream in terror. Their screams are hideously amplified by the dream. I try to call 911, but I know that Liz will have died by the time anyone arrives to help. Ben and Liz
continue to scream. This is my fault.
Even though I didn't mean to harm Liz, I'm the sole reason she fell and is now dying rapidly...
This is among the worst nightmares I've ever had. I cannot remember the last time I've felt such an intense surge of terror or guilt while dreaming. I can't fully describe what the screams of my little brother and sister sounded like. The amount of fear, shock, and desperation in them were unlike anything I've ever heard/experienced in the waking world. I woke up sweating and breathing as if winded.

(2/3-4/2019)
Ted Bundy owns properties under a freeway tunnel that winds through a mountain.
We descend into a very large cave. Lush fields sprawl beneath an orange sky. We find his house in the back of the cave near a river and venture inside to see his bedroom. There’s a body in the closet. Another body, decayed to little more than a skeleton, is found in a stone tomb in the front yard.

I’m on campus in the chemistry hall, but it looks different. I’m supposed to meet Sam at the bottom of some steps, but I enter a computer lab and head down a different set of steps instead. I walk outside through glass double doors to a grassy, hilly area. I see a school shooter and try to lead him away from any other students. It works; he starts following me. The dream is slowing my movements, but I escape...
...I’m heading up a road along a river into the mountains. The river is very wide at some points. At one point, silver truck drives past in the middle of the river. I’m with Bekah. I discover a small hippie van in a basin and glide down to it. Inside the van is a sunny mansion basement. There’s a party going on, where I meet a lot of cool people...
...I have a career as a neuroscientist and am married to a girl with orange hair whom I met at a movie theater.
I’m happy and fulfilled.

(Unrecorded date)
Two women drive past our campsite near Granby in a large plastic RV. They try to make it up an impossibly steep hill but keep sliding down. They drive up a steep slope of sand and turn onto an unseen road halfway up...
...It’s early morning at our campsite, although now the campsite has transformed into a large, industrial-looking hotel near Atchison, Kansas. Matt and I head up the same slope the two ladies drove up, which is now snowy. Halfway up, I look down and get vertigo. I’m enjoying myself. The sun rises, large and red over the town we are now looking down on...
...I’m back in my hotel room. It turns out it’s still night, but there’s light streaming in through the window as if it’s morning. I investigate and discover 3 floodlights set out in a dark desert landscape, all pointed at the window. If I look in the direction of the lights and close my eyes, I see moving patterns...
...Ben and I run through the hotel facility the next day. We ascend a concrete ridge through an open-walled complex. The landscape has changed again - it’s now dusty and covered in low shrubs. I find what looks like an old wooden fence made of rubber and use it to slingshot myself through the air.

(09/22/2019)
There’s a new housing building at my college, and it’s 40 stories tall. I take the elevator to floor 30. Outside the elevator is a mountain path. I carry someone along it while imagining what it would be like to mountain bike on it. Now inside again, I come to a plain set of dual staircases. Dark carpet lines them. Dull light fills the room through a small, simple square window. I try to find my way up one of the staircases but get confused and so try the other side. I wander up through plain common rooms and eventually make my way to a sprawling eating area in a massive, modern room. Tables sit on tiered platforms. Shiny metal railings line wide, shallow staircases. The room opens up to an outside eating area where I see Caden, and he tells me that
there’s a big information desk on floor 40.
I’ll make my way there.
I try to find another staircase, an elevator, anything — some way up and out of the food area. I have no luck. Getting desperate, I scale a concrete building and enter an outside art gallery. I wander through the art pieces, still looking for a staircase. I pass a large pile/collage of painted rocks before entering a narrow tower, the first floor of which is a restaurant. I finally find set of stairs after a Mexican father and son ordering Chipotle point them out to me. I take the stairs up to a large pool area. I go up some stairs again to a grand lobby. Someone plays a piano in a large, hotel-like hall. It certainly smells like a hotel. Fancy, thick, red carpets adorn the floors. I can hear a stone lion-shaped fountain gurgling in another room and see a large, rectangular pool outside. This is the top floor - floor 41. My mother is here. I tell her that this place really reminds me of the Broadmoor.

(4/29-30/2020)
I’m in bed with a cat. I can’t see it because it’s under the covers, but I know it’s Toby. I can feel him arch his back when I scratch him. Then I remember that we had to put Toby down a few days ago; he’s dead. And we don’t have a new cat.
What’s under the covers?
I yell in shock...
…I’m startled ‘awake’ into another dream by the nightmare. It’s ‘morning’ now. Mom and Dad take the dogs out, wearing yellow raincoats. Part of me feels like I'm in a small coffee shop on a rainy morning. Another part feels as though I’m in a rainforest. The house is huge and foggy. Things echo.
Looking over the balcony is like
looking down
through a bank of clouds…
...Matt is on his way to Pike’s Peak. He stops for a bike ride and falls hundreds of feet over a steep cliff. Somehow, he’s still alive. The whole family comes to make sure he’s okay. We sit with him in the gully he fell into. It’s narrow and filled with chalky red sediment. Someone walks up and warns Matt about not biking while on drugs, and Matt tells him to fuck off...
...Ben and I are in the old twin beds. It’s oppressively dark in our room — unnaturally dark. Ben is asleep. Something grabs my leg from behind, and I fall face-first off the bed onto the floor. I try to yell for Ben, but as I was falling, I realized that what I thought was Ben is actually
a dark, hunched figure…
———-
(6/16-17/2020; ~7:00 AM, after silencing several alarms)
I’m manufacturing a prank video scenario in my mind; it manifests in real life (dream-world real life) as I imagine it. A young adult male is stopped by TSA while going through airport security and is led into a room furnished with dark, multicolored carpet. Overhead halogen lamps wash the room in a weak yellow glow. A printer sits against a plain white wall. The TSA agents begin to print pictures onto pieces of printer paper, claiming that they’ll be used as evidence against the young adult. As the pictures come out, the young man realizes that they’re all black and white images from a vacation he had taken during the previous year. He and his friends had visited a small, snowy seaside village. It was cold there, but the pictures give him a cozy feeling because they spark happy memories. He is confused. The agents begin to talk about their personal memories associated with each image. The young man begins to suspect a prank and subsequently recognizes the TSA agents to be his friends. He smiles weakly but is still clearly shaken up…
…I am bathing a tiger with hand soap in my driveway. Brisk air and pink light fill the early morning. I’m nervous, but the tiger greatly appreciates the bath. I also wash a few monkeys. One of the monkeys turns into a woman and asks if she can visit me later. The animals beg me to come back, and I promise to, but I know that I never will. I realize that before washing the animals, I had been doing homework throughout the entire previous month (may) with no breaks. This marks the first morning during which I’m not working steadily. I’m filled with deep sadness. I examine my work. I’ve been drawing (with pencil) disfigured animals against disturbing, dreamlike backgrounds. Strange plants fill the scenes.
A song is playing as I enter my backyard again and head towards the back door of my house. (I can only remember two lines of the song now that I’m awake. The melody was a cross between __ and Mr. Jones.)
The lyrics are:
“My heart has been turned to sticks and stones
Without even breaking my bones.”
I miss the animals.
I ponder whether all the work I did is worth anything to me.
The waking world now feels so much less meaningful to me than washing the tiger. I don’t care about anything, and it makes me very sad.
I really miss the animals.
I’ve resolved to carefully examine my life experience, what I want, and what makes me feel fulfilled through the lens of the dream.
Will I ever feel as ‘full’ in the waking world as I did while washing the tiger?

2020.07.25 06:29 ntidwell98 Thorough DD $IBIO

Who is IBIO?


IBIO CDMO


CDMO SERVICES


FastPharming Technology





FastGlycaneering (Glycan-Engineering)


Why FastGlycaneering?




PIPELINE





Advantages of IBIO-400







Partners


Team


FINANCIALS


CONCERNS:
· A few very important quotes from the 10-Q filed 05/15/2020
· “To become and remain profitable, the Company must succeed in commercializing its technologies, alone or with its licensees, the service offerings provided by its CDMO facility, and in developing and eventually commercializing products that generate significant revenue. In addition, profitability will depend on continuing to attract and retain customers for the development, manufacturing and technology transfer services offered by the Company.”
· “Based on the total cash on hand of approximately $10.0 million as of March 31, 2020, combined with subsequent purchases of the Company’s common stock by Lincoln Park through the date of the filing of this report totaling approximately $10 million, we believe the Company has adequate cash on hand to support the Company’s activities for at least one year from this report date.”



CONCLUSION
I am bullish medium/long term on IBIO if they can mange to effectively license their technology platforms as well as continue to further research and develop their vaccination candidates. IF either IBIO 200 and/or 201 show positive results soon in combating COVID, this is could lead to government funding (possible OWS) as the ability to mass produce 500 million vaccines annually on their own is huge. They have burned through a good bit of cash and are reliant on some key factors, but overall with the direction the world is going and the increased popularity/demand for vaccines, I am positive on the future outlook of IBIO for now.
I own a position of 1050 shares @ 4.49 and plan to hold for 1+ year.
Hope everyone enjoys and as always I invite comments, concerns, and additional information I missed. Best of luck to everyone with their trades and have a great weekend!


EDIT 1: July 29, 2020: IBIO filed an 8-K. Within the 8-K, it states "The Company plans to participate in media interviews and make a series of investor presentations over the next several weeks, during which it intends to discuss the preliminary preclinical data set forth in Exhibit 99.1, which is incorporated herein by reference." (Page 3, Item 8.01). In my opinion, you wouldn't participate in media interviews and prepare for investor presentations if you had negative preliminary data or doubts. I remain upbeat about the next few months.

EDIT 2: Ibio activated SAM funding on 07/31/2020

EDIT 3: Going back over my DD I realize I have left out 3 very important relationships iBio has formed this year.
  1. iBio Selected by IBM Watson Health for the use of IBM Clinical Development Solution at No Cost to help Support clinical COVID-19 Vaccine Candidates
    1. IBM Watson Health has selected iBio to receive 18 months of use of the IBM Clinical Development (ICD) solution, free-of-charge.
  2. iBio Expands COVID-19 Vaccine Collaboration to Include the Infectious Disease Research Institute (Seattle).
    1. Signed two Master Services Agreements (the MSAs”) and a Memorandum of Understanding (the “MoU”) with the Infectious Disease Research Institute (“IDRI”) in support of iBio’s SARS-CoV-2 Virus-Like Particle (“VLP”) vaccine development.
    2. IDRI will support pre-clinical development and provide clinical trial oversight, while iBio will provide process development and manufacturing services to IDRI, as needed.
    3. Additionally, the MoU calls for iBio and IDRI to establish a separate, additional agreement within the next 60 days if the Company opts to include one of IDRI’s novel adjuvants in the COVID-19 vaccine development program (“IBIO-200”).
    4. The MSAs and the MoU integrate IDRI into iBio’s collaboration with the Texas A&M University System to create a strong partnership that brings deep experience and advanced technologies and capabilities to the task of moving IBIO-200 into the clinic.
  3. Joined the National Institute for Innovation in Manufacturing Biopharmaceuticals (“NIIMBL”), one of 14 institutes in the Manufacturing USA Network.
    1. NIIMBL is a public-private partnership that aims to accelerate biopharmaceutical manufacturing innovations and establish an international, leading workforce to fundamentally strengthen the U.S. biopharmaceutical industry.
    2. NIIMBL has an extensive network of more than 140 academic and industry partners within the U.S., including biopharmaceutical companies, academic institutions, research laboratories and non-profit organizations.

EDIT 4:
Alright, so this is ALL THEORY again but I can't help but post to get everyones opinion.
I was going back and watching Trump's Press Conference from July 28th where he talks about "producing 100 million vaccines as soon as a vaccine is approved and then 500 million doses shortly after."
So, the 500 million dose approximation Trump stated caught my attention because that is the same approximation iBio has claimed previously and was reiterated by Tom Isett in his The Hill interview.
What REALLY caught my attention was at 0:21 to 0:45. Trump begins to ramble on about "logistically using the military", a group of people who's "whole life is based around logistics", and them being able to do it very very quickly. Well at the end Trump says "a very very talented General is in charge."
First, the Department of Defense built the 130,000 sq ft CDO that iBio acquired in Bryan, Texas. So they know it exist.
Second, guess who are on the Board of Directors at iBio, Inc.?
General (Ret.) James T. Hill was the Commander of the 4-Star United States Southern Command, reporting directly to the President and Secretary of Defense at the time of his retirement from active duty. As such he led all U.S. military forces and operations in Central America, South America and the Caribbean, worked directly with U.S. Ambassadors, foreign heads of state, key Washington decision-makers, foreign senior military and civilian leaders, developing and executing United States policy. His responsibilities included management, development and execution of plans and policy within the organization including programming, communications, manpower, operations, logistics and intelligence. General Hill's experience implementing plans and policies within diverse geographic regions and his insights regarding the conduct of business affairs in Central and South America is a key resource for us.

Philip K. Russell, M.D. served in the U.S. Army Medical Corps from 1959 to 1990, pursuing a career in infectious disease and tropical medicine research. Following his military service, Dr. Russell joined the faculty of Johns Hopkins University's School of Hygiene and Public Health and worked closely with the World Health Organization as special advisor to the Children's Vaccine Initiative. He was founding board member of the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative and was an advisor to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. He has served on numerous advisory boards of national and international agencies, including the Centers for Disease Control ("CDC"), the National Institutes of Health ("NIH") and the Institute of Medicine. Dr. Russell is a past Chairman of the Albert B. Sabin Vaccine Institute. Dr. Russell's extensive experience and expertise in the field of infectious diseases and his association with leading governmental and not-for-profit entities engaged in pioneering work throughout the world provides us with invaluable insights into priorities for these entities and business development opportunities for us.

EDIT 5:
Here are a few things I’ve been looking into lately in regard to iBio:
First off, The US Government has made investments in programmes such as DARPA’s Blue Angel and other accelerated, large-scale manufacturing efforts for medical countermeasures within the Department of Defense and Department of Health and Human Services to develop capabilities to rapidly respond to any emerging disease or pandemic threat.
[DARPA Effort Speeds Biothreat Response](https://archive.defense.gov/News/NewsArticle.aspx?ID=61520)
This is an article from DoD website from 2010.
This lead me to begin researching G-Con:
Since 2009, G-CON has lead the cleanroom industry, fulfilling pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical needs and embracing new trends. G-CON designs, builds and installs prefabricated cleanroom PODs for a variety of dimensions and purposes, from laboratory environments to personalized medicines and even production process platforms.
Well I was watching a YouTube video about The GreenVax Project and the construction of the facility in Bryan/College Station that iBio eventually acquires in 2016.
https://youtu.be/T0nukOKUiCo
The same exact clean room solutions that G-Con designs is what Giroir is talking about in the video about being able to move the rooms around due to the air bearings.
EDIT 6:
USDA Confirmation of iBio planting seeds for Human Consumption.
EDIT 5: July 31st, 2020
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and Department of Defense (DoD) today announced agreements with Sanofi and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) to support advanced development including clinical trials and large-scale manufacturing of 100 million doses of a COVID-19 investigational adjuvanted vaccine.... The U.S. government also has the ability to acquire up to 500 million additional doses. Is this could be what Trump was referring to?
It very well could be! I’ve stated that this is theory and nothing is for certain.
However, it has been said by many doctors/scientists that it will take many manufactures and vaccines to produce what’s being demanded. Even Trump stated that at his North Carolina COVID press release.
Things that stood out to me HHS, DoD article.
I could still very well be wrong. This is a personal opinion based on my own research and conclusions.

EDIT 7: August 6th, 2020
Trump signs executive order requiring government to buy ‘essential’ drugs from U.S. companies
EDIT 8: August 7th, 2020
SEC FORM SC 13D/A Eastern Capital Ltd. [Amend] General statement of acquisition of beneficial ownership.

2020.07.20 20:06 TricksterPriestJace Respect Laila Subaru, AKA Shift

Name: Laila Subaru
Alias: Shift
Date of birth: 2005/02/14
Tier: Gamma
Alignment: Villain
Intentions: Both
Appearance: Laila is a small Caucasian girl with a slight Asian look from her great grandfather. Blue eyes, black hair. She carries a mask and black jumpsuit she can change into in her backpack if she was going to be up to no good.
Background: Laila is from rural Kansas. She had few friends, as she was home schooled by her very religious mother who didn't want her kids to learn about any satanist stuff such as evolution or divorce. She was the youngest of seven, with six brothers. Laila was a bit of a tomboy, but always wore a dress or skirt and kept her hair long to please her momma. She would often tag along with her brothers on their hunting trips and her Pa got her her own .22 rifle when she turned ten, just like he did for her brothers.
Laila realized she had powers soon after the white event, but was afraid of anyone finding out, or the government would come and take her away. She slowly took months on her own to practice them off in the woods. When she was confident in her control of her power, she told her Pa about it, and demonstrated shifting around the room. He saw her skills as an opportunity to pay off his gambling debts, and got her in contact with some criminals in town.
Laila took to life in the underworld a little too readily, and within a month had paid off her dad's debts, the family's mortgage, her second eldest brother's college tuition, and had enough to get herself an apartment in the city. Much to her brothers' horror, her independence streak has gone so far as wearing skirts that reveal her knees. (But only while wearing tights. She isn't a hussy.)
Personality: Has a nervous and shy personality which she tries to make up for with false bravado.
Base of Operations: Mobile
Equipment/Resources: Has guns and some military grade equipment that she has stolen or acquired on the black market, as well as a fair amount of cash she has accumulated illegitimately.
Laila has a movie prop dead man switch. It has a trigger and a flashing light and little speaker in it that beeps, but no actual radio signal, since she doesn't have any bombs with kill signal triggers.
Powers:
  • Shift: Laila can shift to an alternate dimension becoming effectively invisible and intangible for short bursts. While shifted she can move at great speed, but must stop to return to reality. She can shift for up to 150 ms. While shifted she moves at Mach 2.5. She cannot move or harm anything in reality while shifted. She can take up to 50 kg of equipment and clothing with her during a shift. She has 1 ms reactions while shifted, but only 5 ms while in reality. She does not tire from shifted movement any more than walking.
Character Physicals:
Peak human aside from reaction time of 5 ms when not shifted.
Skills: A good shot, she has been practicing with several firearms since the white event. Has made some mob contacts to launder money.
Weaknesses: Hits like a human, takes a hit like a human.
Feats:
  • Shifted into a bank behind the tellers, swiped the money from the bill counter, shifted through the back wall to escape.
  • Shifted into a national guard armory, swiped a crate of grenades.
  • Killed a mob boss' family by annihilating their sedan with a SAW. Shifted to flee and avoid the cars full of goons, as she was hired to not kill the guards.
  • A guy shot at her, she shifted behind him and shot him in the back.
  • Shifted thorough a wall, saw that there were several heroes waiting on the other side, went back the way she came before returning to reality.
  • Made a head shot at 800 yards with an EBR. She was aiming for center of mass, but still, a hit is a hit.
  • Shifted into a car traveling on the highway, returned to reality at rest relative to the car seat she was sitting on.
  • Shifted into reality and shot a security camera and shifted out in 2 ms, leaving only a blur on a single frame of the recording.
  • Startled by a balloon popping she shifted and spun around instinctively, then realized it was nothing and returned to her original position in under 10 ms.

2020.07.18 18:31 Army_Bot Summary For: Weekly Question Thread (12 MAR - 18 MAR)

I just did something stupid. Had a guy call me from the city where I went to MEPS (New Orleans) claiming to be a private investigator for some type of Army security clearance shit, asked me where I'm stationed/what unit I'm in. I stupidly told him, realized it's probably a scammer. How bad did I mess up? Should I let anyone know?

I recently just swore myself into the Army as an 88k (Watercraft Operator). Theres not much info out there on the job beyond the basics of it. Any of you have any experience working as an 88k or worked with those under that mos?

I want to get into the intelligence field. I have a bachelors degree so I’m looking to enlist as an E-4 (low GPA so I wouldn’t be Officer competitive). Practice ASVAB: 80 something. My goal is to join a three letter agency or a contractor. Here are my questions:
  1. I’m having trouble picking between the 35 Series MOS. Here is what I’m interested in and maybe you can point me to the right MOS. I like intelligence collection, not really analyzing. I hate coding, but if it involved technology I wouldn’t be opposed to it. I’m a native Spanish speaker. I feel like I’d like to gather the information, and have other people analyze it and present it. I hate presenting anything.
  2. How likely is it for someone with a bachelors degree, and a 35 Series MOS to be competitive at three letter agencies or contractors?
  3. Does being airborne, or going to ranger school allow me to do what I want (collection) more often than if I didn’t?
Thanks for the help!

Can I switch recruiters if I don't think my current one doesn't care? I'm finishing sending in the pre-medical screening documents to process to go to MEPS etc. And after numerous times talking to my recruiter he continuously calls me the wrong name, pushes me to do 19D instead of 19K, and ignores calls/ doesn't remember my phone number. I'm thinking of just going to another recruiter to solve all of this but I'm not sure if I'm joined at the hip at this point.

Had some OCIE stolen from a vehicle. I'm looking through AR 735-5 to see if it describes all the circumstances that would make this theft "negligence" on SMs behalf. I've heard of a "no OCIE left in a vehicle for over 24 hours" but I can't find the supporting reg.
Anyone have insight or can refer me to the correct reg. I can't find it in AR 735-5

Hey guys, First of all I want to say thank you for the plethora of information I've been able to receive by simply lurking around this sub-reddit and searching posts relevant to questions that I've had throughout the process of preparing to join the military.
Some background information relevant to my inquiry; I'm a 21 year old male who's been fighting the desire to join the army for 4 years due to my parent's requests to give civilian life a shot first (I know, stupid). I have 56 college credit hours under my belt and have been interning as a web developecustomer relations specialist for the past year, but I've come to the conclusion that I won't be satisfied with anything less than dedicating my life to the service of my country. I plan to make service in the Army a career, not a 4 and done type of deal.
With that information in mind, I've come to a point where I have one decision left to make. I'm ready to join the army as soon as I finish my internship in August. However, I feel I would be doing myself a disservice if I didn't at least entertain the notion of finishing my degree and applying for OCS. Part of me wants to enlist (19D, please hold the gay jokes to a minimum... I know some of you guys can't help yourselves here); I'm tired of putting off military service, and I've always had a desire for the enlisted "worker" type life. But part of me thinks the experience and opportunity for leadership that comes with a commission is something worth delaying my entry into the service for. My reservation in that respect would be the fact that I would be joining the service later, probably at age 24.
Does anyone have any insight or recommendation regarding my situation? Appreciate the comments in advanced, thank you all for your service to our country and advice in my current situation.

Stupid questions, I've been guilted in by a friend to join the marines since he needed a referral for a promotion. I've been thinking about joining the army before hand. After going to meps, taking the oath, being in the dep, being personally trained everyday past months(since I couldn't go past 5 push ups, 10 crunches, mile and half 17min). After failing the initial strength test for my shipment date, I had the choice of either being discharged or keep training to continue, I want to continue, but I still want to join the army, how screwed am I? Can I still join, should I quit the marines and switch or let them discharge me? I'm still training on my own, currently I can do as of currently 30-35 push ups, 85 crunches 2min, and run a mile and half at 12:40., edit also i'm 22

I need advice for getting larger in size (gaining weight while remaining fit or lean). I'm already at my duty station and past training but I'm a short 5'5 guy and I weigh only about 140 pounds. I badly want to gain weight I take weight gain and eat trash like burgers and fries everyday but my weight just maintains itself.
I'm only 20 and I look really young. I used to be fat in school then I lost that weight naturally and never could put it back on. Please is there anything I can do I want to get big not necessarily shredded but i feel hopeless

Also how does deployments work concerning your room and all the stuff in it? Does the room just get locked up or do you need to get like a storage space? Also what's ft bragg like? I hear so much negatives about it but why? Thank you!

So I’ve been reading up on the whole CLI/MLI changes. I’m prior service who meets the criteria for the MLI. Now once I get these asshats to update my ERB to reflect my correct TIS/TIG, I should be put on the MLI list the 1st of April, correct? Then upon completion of BLC, I should be promoted if my star MOS stays bottomed out and they pick everyone up, correct? After I’m on the MLI list, there is no incentive to board, right? Since you’re on the promotable list with P status, correct? I want to make sure I understand this right.

Reporting to my first duty station from VA to Kansas
But while driving through VA I get pulled over for speeding, 90 in a 70 mile zone. come to find out this is actually reckless driving in VA. My court date is May 1. Officer said I can call and I won’t have to show up.
How fucked am I? Should I tell my chain of command that I haven’t even met? Or call the office there/ hire a lawyer to get it reduced to a speeding ticket?

Morning/Afternoon,
So I've just been placed on assignment to Ft. Carson. I'm excited about the move, but I do have a question.
I'm a single E6 and I've spent almost my entire military career overseas. I'm not exactly sure what unit I'm going to, but I know I'll be going to 4ID.
Am I authorized BAH? The Carson page stated that SSGs had to find their own lodging arrangements during inprocessing so I'm sure I'll have to get a place. The main reason I am asking this is because my S1 told me that I need proof that I am authorized BAH to attach to a DA31 (as substantiating records or whatever) so that my BN CDR can authorize me permissive TDY.
Has anyone here been stationed there before? I haven't been stationed in the states in a long time so again, I'm pretty excited.
Thanks for the help.

Is there anywhere in the Army system that actually lists your pay-grade? I know that sounds like a dumb question, but bear with me.
I'm trying to keep an eye on it to see if it's been adjusted from O-1 to O-1e.
MyPay/DFAS only lists my officer rank as O01 and when I asked them about it, they said Tier 1 people have no way of seeing the E modifier, nor is it listed anywhere either of us can see it.
My paygrade on my iperms says "2LT" ... yeah, my rank, not even the wrong paygrade.
My last hope was to check my SRB, but it only gives me a "disable popup" warning for a flash before doing nothing (I have popups disabled completely).
So... does it actually list it anywhere?
It's been two months and my unit has yet to help me get this done and I kind of want it corrected before I head to BOLC where it actually starts to affect my pay.

Question for linguists but looking for Koreans specifically: did the language courses you take adequately prepare you for dialects or irregular speech patterns beyond the base language? I've only been studying on my own for a lil over a month but if I'm not mistaken, there are unique differences between North & South Korea's vocabulary whereas NK has more Korean-based words while SK has more English Loan words. There's also a distinct manner of speaking for SK soldiers.
I plan on studying these much later down the road but will this be covered at all or am I going to have to study on my own if I want to learn it?
Also thank you to everyone who gave me advice on resources to use for studying in the 1st place. I wound up using all of your advice as well as improvising with my own things - think I'm doing pretty well.

Posted here before and on shadowspear forums. Figured id throw in one final question because i am going to MEPs tomorrow for the 5th time to sign my contract.
I had an issue with my left eye it was 20/30 corrected. right is 20/20. Finally got my waiver, figured i would not be able to get my 18x contract i have been training for. Already mentally prepared to go 11 series and transfer to 18 series in OSUT, yestreday i sat down with recruiter and he wanted me to sign an 11x/option 40. I ended up locking in the system just a plain ol vanilla 11x contract, realized later in the day that if i can get option 40.. i could get 18x. So should i let them know i want to wait for an 18x because of course everything is set in stone for me and i would get some sort of bonus i assume. Or just ride the wave and go with 11x, knowing i have a good GT score and ill get maxed out PT test. So should have 0 issues getting 18x once i am at OSUT.
Sorry this was kind of poorly written, i am in a rush. Just wanted to get this question posted before I leave the house today.
Thanks -Max

Sorry I know this has been asked to death but I just have to ask. So today I had a good meeting with my recruiter yesterday where we finalized all the necessary paperwork and I am at the moment scheduled to go to MEPS later next week. I brought up that I have smoked marijuana but after saying that it has been over 6 months from my last time, he brushed it off.
Now to be perfectly honest I’ve smoked about 16 times, and I’m more than willing to go through the paper work to get a waiver, I still have school until early June. Next to all my jobs that I would like require a TS clearance, and everyone here makes it very clear that I will get caught, and it will be on my head if I lie and get caught. So I’m just thinking, would it be best to possibly try and work with a different recruiter? Thanks for any and all advice.

I'm a bit confused about the advanced paygrade upon enlisting regarding completion of JROTC. From what I've been able to find online, completing 2 or more years of JROTC qualifies you for advancement to an E-2 upon enlisting. It probably seems common sensical but I've been unable to find if the Army recognises this for JROTC programs across all branches. So having completed 3 years of AF JROTC, will this qualify me for advancement in paygrade?

Hello, before i dive into this situation i am not trying to come across as i am to good for where i have ended up or that i do not appreciate what the military is doing for me.
With that being said, i have had a very interesting experience at MEPS and would like to share it with the community to get some insight and see if maybe i am in the wrong here. I went to MEPS with an 11x contract reservation by my local recruiting office, once arrived at the Miami MEPS office i was told i do not qualify for this job.
Now full disclosure i have a slight lazyness in my left eye- known as ambloypia. I had to get a waiver for this and also had a eye consultation.
My eye results stated that my vision is correctable to 20/20 - 20/30. Once my waiver was approved i was informed my new PULHES score is 111111
However the MEPS recruiter told me that i do not qualify over and over, i pulled my local recruiter inside with me who was in the hall just to see what he says. Basically they went back and forth and my recruiter seemed slightly confused. He even repulled the job for me in the system on his laptop but the MEPS recruiter was not having it. He went on to say that my eye consult i was instructed to get done has 0 value to them and that he is only giving me a job based off initial findings at MEPS. But initial findings at MEPS are uncorrected vision where as my corrected is 20/20-20/30. So that is two completely different values.
Told me if i want to end up one day with a slot in SFAS that i have to go to 12B and after my 14 weeks i can contact the SF recruiter to submit my packet. That sounds peachy but i keep finding information about having to be at a duty station for at least a year to reclass, certain ranks, if leadership will even release you, on and on.
I have a good friend who was an 11b that is just concerned for my future, he told me he has seen this happen to lots of people and they in the end will lose motivation and get broken down. He believes as well that 12b and 11x have the same vision standard so if i can enlist under one.. why not the other.
Like i said i am happy and lucky to even have made it this far, i understand a lot of people do not get the chance to enlist at all no matter how hard they try. I just do not like the feeling of potentially having the wool pulled over my eyes.
I know i have been on these forums a good bit more than i probably should be and just should roll with my situation. But i value the information you all have and the experience,. With that being said i do not want to make improper life decisions because i did not stand up to a recruiter in the fear of a 6th trip to MEPS. I want to have little to no regrets in life.. at least if they are easy to fix before they occur.
Of course if there is nothing to be done i will be optimistic, keep my head up and work my ass off to get where i want to be.
I hope you understand where i am coming from and do not see this in the wrong light. Thanks for any replies in advance.

Hi All,
I was selected as a summer intern for the Army JAG Corps, and will be spending 3 months "in Kaiserslautern". Unfortunately, I don't know much else, and won't be assigned a sponsor for an unknown amount of time.
This is concerning, as I need to figure out a place to live for such an awkward amount of time, figure out transportation, etc. My best guess is that I will end up working at the legal services office on Kleber Kaserne, but again, I don't know for sure.
So, anyone have any similar experiences or tips to share? I'm looking into AirBnb's, im trolling BooKoo listings, and trying to figure out if I can use the Housing Management Office at Ramstein to help find lodging, since I am still on IRR for the ARNG.

So I'm a 17 yr old high school dropout with a GED. I really wanted to do some high speed combat badass shit so I did my research and decided on the Rangers. I talked to my recruiter and reserved an 11xop40 contract. Went to MEPS but they said I couldn't sign that day bc of being out of high school, I have to be 18. I turn 18 1 week after, so my recruiter says hell drop it and immediately go back in and get it, so it'll be reserved for another week. Talked to him today and he says he tried, but 10 seconds after he dropped it, it disappeared and he couldn't get another one, no more. They're trying to get me to do a normal 11x no option, saying it's very common for the 75th to recruit from basic graduation. Saying there's a good chance I'll get airborne or RASP right after OSUT or at least soon after. Idk what to do..
I'm not okay with being basic infantry my whole time, and I'm not okay with being a paratrooper my whole time. However, if I have to be in one of these for a couple months, then I think I'll be okay with that. Is this unrealistic? Are slots at these schools hard to come by?
Thanks to anyone who can help

Leaving for Infantry OSUT shortly and have some questions. My recruiter isn't infantry so he wasn't able to answer them thoroughly.
1.) Exactly how cut off am I from the outside world? I'm a person who really enjoys reading the news, will I have access to the goings-on of the world or will I only be able to hear about things from letters and things the DS tell us?
2.) What do you do all day? I understand get up early, PT, shower, eat breakfast. But then what? Precisely what is the day spending doing and learning?
3.) Do DSes read incoming mail?
4.) Is the date on my contract that says I will leave reception and begin the real deal accurate or is that a rough estimation? I leave on a Tuesday and my paperwork states I will be cleared from reception the following Monday.
5.) Battle buddies. How are they assigned?
6.) Are companies a mix of 18Xs, Op. 40s, Op. 4s, or is everybody separated?
7.) Is my head kept shaved weeks 1-14 or is some lenience allowed as the training progresses?
8.) Working out in my free time. Feasible? I'm trying not to lose shape and was wondering if I would be able to, say, get some additional running in or am I just relegated to doing pushups in the bay for example.
9.) Is it true SF recruiters come to OSUT classes to get people to volunteer for 18X? I'm aware Ranger recruiters come by, but SF?

If anyone can lend me a bit of insight on a matter I'm having, I'd appreciate it; Context: I'm 20 going into the Army, looking into getting a 17C MOS if possible. I scored a 95 on the ASVAB and have about 41 college credits to work with.
I'm at the medical portion of my recruiting, and I've wisened to the motto that MEPS only knows what you tell them. The issue I'm having is that I have a severe Penicillin allergy and a small, but obvious scar across my abdomen from a childhood surgery (with complete documents). I was told that the former can be a disqualifier (even though I know you can red tags, but I'm not sure how you get them) and the latter will drag out the process indefinitely.
I was told to see am allergist and send over all the docs related to the surgery. I'm also going out to get a bill of health to prove I'm well and able.
So here's my concern: Does a penicillin allergy extend processing? Can be I completely dismissed over a small scar and surgery notes or do I still have a shot? *please pm me for specifics if needed
Sorry for the essay, but this has my mind racked. Thank you for your help!

2020.07.10 02:04 kyleraymundv2 Therapy Session

Coat, hat, degree on the wall, professionally installed carpet. Couch is not a couch per se, more a sterile and pillowless recliner, designed to give one the best experience possible. Lights, walls, bookshelf in the back full of empty pamphlets, stuffed folders, to the brim with index cards and postcards and info on my past clients. Mahogany, not real mahogany, of course, the desk is made out of wood pulp covered by a layer of plywood designed to look like mahogany. Very dry, yet distinguished, and from a distance you could almost call me a professional. I am a professional, I have a degree in all sorts of mental gymnastics, but you wouldn’t know that.
I dress casually at all times, feeling that one can feel more at ease with slacks and a t-shirt, baseball cap flipped to the side. I am nearing middle age, 42, my eyes squint in dusty conditions and my hair is receding like Grunge. I pace from the bookshelf to the chair in the corner , sometimes. Still don’t know why that chair is there, for a wife or parent or something to sit down while their associate is sorted through, though to date I haven’t had any patients accompanied by anyone. Above this chair, which is plastic with comfy padded armrests, next to this is a potted plant, fake of course, about seven inches to the left is a portrait by some famous artist, of what I suppose one would call the impressionist period, Monet and that sort, only this one is a cheap replica I got for $100 at the local auction, the guy even stated that it was a replica, but who cares, it’s a nice painting and some good décor, more suggestive than a Rorschach test, though I still keep a deck of those stashed in the drawer, just in case.
The painting has ample strokes and pleasant overtones, but something about it makes the mind do acrobatics. I’ve had three of my quota mention that they’ve seen it somewhere before, in a TV show or something, that it was in the background, that it’s always been there. In their heads, they can’t seem to get it out. It’s not San Giorgio Maggiore, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it was painted in the same year. This one is simpler, no cathedral in the background, but like Giorgio, it’s set on the water, small fishing dock, maybe a port, and the shapes are just as obscured and vague in the evening haze. In the middle is a ship. Big thing, massive, calls to mind the steamers of old, and there are people on it, too, if you look very closely, faint, almost indiscernible silhouettes. Manning the rigging, wheel, etc. It’s pretty, but I often wonder who painted this and who these people are supposed to be. I also wonder what it would be like to exist in such an Impressionistic world. Get sucked in, feel this synthetic carpet move back under my feet as the noises of freshwater Venetian waves and murmuring ship hands grow closer and closer. I wonder sometimes, and my clientele give me the answers.
The man who came in last week should know, he walked through and sat on the couch, he was worried, I could tell by the wrinkles in his forehead, so I told him to lie down on there so he could spill all his worries out like a torrential flood right there in the middle of all this psychiatric foliage. I turned off the lights, they’re usually too bright for anyone to think, I only have them so I can work, then I went over to the wall and opened up the windows, let soft natural light and fresh air fill the room. There on the couch, legs periodically crossed, eyes looking at that replica of mine, he filled me in. The guy, I would say, was not by any means looking shabby. He had good hair, he was in his thirties, early thirties. Sandy hair, maybe from the Southwest, Caucasian, with certain features that indicates a decrepit and empty aura if not a decrepit look.
I muted my phone- push button landline, have yet to switch over to those cellular things, but it does have fax- walked over to him. I pulled out my sketchpad. I guess I didn’t pull it out of anywhere, it was lying on the desk, I’m sloppy with those things, shouldn’t leave notepads lying on the desk where anyone can read them, I should put it in the drawer. Flip through it, get to today, the guy moans a bit and turns over. I know this guy scheduled himself, didn’t just come in here, and I wonder if my receptionist saw what I’m seeing now or if this is just a hangover of some kind. The guy’s clothes are a bit wrinkled, wearing tennis shoes, classic sign of immaturity, or at least Freud would have me believe, but I try and keep an open mind. He points at my personal computer, asks if I could switch the monitor off, a request which I oblige. The darkness in the room now is stifling, almost irrepressible, synthetic materials turned to jungle and organic thriving something off in the corners of this large expanse.
The man has seen something, done something, something which draws him into shadows. Even the midday sun coming through the halfway down blinds cannot repress the feeling of missed opportunity which surrounds this man, a missed opportunity or a blemish on his past. I scribble these things and more down as he opens his lips, and what comes out is not a grunt, or a moan, but a monotone, stale voice. I think about how I am older than this man and yet have so much less than he does, he has experience. He’s seen things, been around things, knows where his head is at and what inning it is. A professional, I assume, looking good and maybe with a wife but no children, maybe she’s unable to have children. Once more, the painting calls to him, the ship so long ago with its rigging and anchor, and ant people scuttling around. Though the ship and the sky itself is obscured in a twilight haze obscured by a real midday haze, atmospheric discombobulation, his eyes are nonetheless enchanted by the world this picture paints. It is because as I have said he is a man of questions and darkness and twilight, and some twilight long ago in Venice or perhaps even Malta the sun is going down and people in near-empty streets are sharing obscure European food in corner cafes, a precursor to that one with the three men alone in a corner café on a dark New York City at night. The ships make ambient noises as their prows cut through the water, and above birds fly open and opaque in the orange hue. His eyes are drawn to this world, and I listen in the darkness as his corneas are sucked across the room.
I know you won’t believe me, he says. Nobody will believe this, you hack, you fraud, this is something for me and me alone. Water, please? His arm gestures, I walk out the door, down the hallway, make a right, to the water cooler, which gurgles softly, pours cool sweet sugar free liquid into a sterile and generic paper cup with swirling brown lines on the sides. Receptionist is at the desk, browsing through something, She’s a good lady. My wife gives me strange looks, she probably thinks I’m cheating on the side with this ditzy 22 year old, yeah right. Anyway. Back in the room, around the corner, shut the door with a soft and svelte click. Give the guy his water. He raises himself with his left elbow, left may have some subtext, must mean something, everything means something unless it doesn’t. Sips it long and hard, glugs that right down his throat until the cup is devoid of even the smallest drop. Still sweating profusely. Eyes like a scared rabbit. Outside, one minute, the light was so scathing. In here it’s cool and dark and night in Venice, and masked figures race along stone pathways, bridges stretch over dark rippling canals over which the lone gondola carries a night passenger to some unknown bistro. Lamps over the canals, too, they reflect sharply on those depthless waves.
And at the same time it’s a blue day outside, postcard blue, traffic can be heard and the buildings resound a sharp grey against the monotone sky. 42 stories down, it’s the lunch hour, revolving doors and cheap trinkets, street cart food and newsstands with all the usual tabloids. Why am I so nervous? I swivel my seat around, get out from behind the desk, right next to him. That’s it. Keep my eyes away from the painting. Whatever you do, don’t look at that painting. You don’t want to know.
Picture if you would a typical day in Seattle. I can’t, I’ve never been there, wouldn’t know the first thing about the place, especially 15 years ago, but picture it anyway. Space Needle, whatever. Pike Place Market, is that in Seattle? I can see it, rows of shops stretching on towards the horizon. We have a mall here, but not a full-on market, just a mall. Cheap shops, people walking and talking on their doodads, parking lot that goes on and on. Miles of labyrinthine corridors lined by the outlets of commerce. He says something along these lines. Mental image, not of Venice this time but of a city of contrasts, woods, mountains, also beaches and city blocks. Confusing place, confusing times, confusing everything, an aesthetic that would lend a hand towards the downright obscene or the unabashedly lovely. I can tell as he recounts this that he’s being awfully genuine, and as he paints this idyllic past I hesitate to use the notepad as this all seems so irrelevant. Gradually, my arm falls, and the pencil drops to the floor. Five minutes later, the notepad joins it.
I stare out the window as his voice loses its monotone qualities and picks right up to speed. I hear about places and people I’ve never heard about, either this guy is a very convincing storyteller or he really was there. Dates line up. He tells me about a school, the girls he went out with, friends he had. I don’t tell him to cut to the chase but I don’t want to rush him and my appointments are empty today. Always slow on Tuesdays. These anecdotes are words, phrases, congealing into an apt picture of the times. He tells me about a concert he went to, the aura of the era, the signs of the times. I’m nostalgic, but not as much as he is, because I’m older than him and he really appreciated these times while they happened. His adolescence doesn’t sound too bad, I think, decent enough, both his parents were supportive, he had lots of friends, even went to dances, where apparently he was popular. Showed up at most of the parties he was invited to, didn’t do drugs but did drink, though not in excess, not in levels that would damage one’s liver or mind. He seems to tell these fuzzy memories as if they happened to someone else, as if they couldn’t have happened to him.
He doesn’t warrant these stories, he wasn’t this good, he didn’t have this much fun, so on. There’s something he’s hiding from me. I offer him a candy, bribe, whole bowl of them right there on my table. Sure it’s cliché? But whatcha gonna do to get someone to open up other than to offer them a treat? I got the idea after seeing the Michelle Pfeiffer movie earlier this year, fireballs, what a great idea, I thought, because it is, right? Except when I went to the store, they didn’t stock fireballs, because of course they didn’t, but they did have Lemonheads, and I figure either way an extreme taste is an extreme taste, right? Gets the juices flowing, gets the tongue moving. Take this, I say, drop the candy in his hand. He unwraps it slowly and thoughtfully, all the while his tongue still going, wrapper crinkling, and he gives it to me and I stuff the wrapper in my pocket, figure to get up and toss it would be too much of a distraction. I’m also scared, though of what I don’t know. This pining and waxing gets on my nerves, the present is enough already without dwelling on the past. I keep in mind, however, that repression is a factor at play here, and between the smacking and rolling that crunchy citrus ball of sugar around from tooth to jaw and back again I get the idea that something is going on in his mind more than something is going on in his mouth, that his mind is a question and I want to answer it, probe it, feel it the way he handled that wrapper, mull over it. Beautiful mind. Dark room, quizzical shadows fall over the furniture. Scene, Action. Piece of cake.
Woods, open and clear day, and across these woods, behind me, is one of those mountains which appears mind-bogglingly high because we’re at sea level. I, however, am stuck between the two. In my hand is a portable cassette player, expensive. My father bought this trinket for me when I was 13, told me it was the wave of the future and he had been nurtured by vinyl as a child. Loud noises fill my mind through thick wires which lead to a strange outfit on my head, one which covers both my ears through the use of a connection on top, a headband of sorts. I turn this device off, store it away, sling the wires over my shoulder, stash the thing in my pocket. Compact, light, easy. Forest noises, wooded glade, in a sense I wish the entire state was like this, a vast expanse of trees producing oxygen, oxygen which fills my lungs. It is midday and the sun is hot but not overly so, and I am dressed for the occasion. Mountains surround these shadowed glades, massive and overpowering and near-Canadian, although they lack the intensity of Canadian slopes.
Sun plays tricks on the needles, leaves are sparse but they shimmy and shake in the rosy glow. Everywhere you can see the green, the overpowering and steady green, the always-present and nearly-not-natural green. Green are the bushes, the herbs, the small trees and the big trees. Green, too, are the mosses and lichens. I do not fear these effervescent structures, in fact they call to me. I am propelled over root and rot to ancient structures time forgot, a crumbling bridge here, an old aqueduct there, left abandoned and in misery out where nobody will find them and man maintains them seldom to none. I do not find them, they find me nonetheless, because decay is very powerful here, green is very powerful here. Green is everywhere. Green can take a structure which took hours and years to build, filed away by some bureaucratic office, and reduce it all to a pile of rubble.
What is green? Green is chaos, green is the longing and the wanting of privacy and the acquisition of said solidarity, and once this is acquired one doesn’t want to leave, you’ve caught a bug, the green bug, one could say. Ferns here, too, old dinosaur things, slippery and wet, and you wonder how they haven’t decayed. You wonder how this all hasn’t decayed yet, it’s so wet and rainy, you’d think it would encrust and grow mold, become a massive soup of rot and fungus, with mountains to hold it all in, swamps and puddles and torrential moistness held in deep dark foaming puddles under the moon while the wind whistles through the dead branches, dead of course because all the leaves have fallen off and gone to the filth reserves. You wonder this, because in the old days, world war one when they had a supply of fresh boots, trenchfoot would seep up through the toes and ligaments. Shortage of boots, and though the foot was living tissue, it rotted away all the same. Rotted in the dirty crevasses, those muddy foxholes, it rotted all the same. You saw this condition referenced on a medical drama some years ago, and it has stuck with you ever since. Me ever since. I turn up and see a flight of birds, as they hop from one forest to another, up north or down south, or maybe they’re just feeling uncomfortable. The sun has gone behind clouds, hiding itself, and the heat gives way to a slight shiver, a trickling and irreversible breeze, nature pushing energy onto you.
You stop, I stop, we all stop for this forest, a forest which defies all expectations. Acres and acres away from life where the laws of physics do not apply. Sequestered men and women who long for loneliness under the cold rock faces of the Cascades. This is ancient land, sacred land, land with channels of icy thirst dripping from every orifice. It is shrouded in mist, held in the grip of something which lends it a mystique, a silence between the cliffs. These hills are here, these mountains are there, in just such a way as to boggle the mind, to make one lost and afraid in the dark on a night when the mist is down and there is no moon, and one is left struggling down slopes, between the trees, into yet another valley and yet another steep slope which defies all logic, and the night does not end. One sits beneath a pine and grows weary, the organs begin to self cannibalize, the bones grow weak, the muscles grow inactive, and by morning what is found is more rotting soup than human. Such is the power of water. Cascades, water, rushing, pouring down every cliff onto other cliffs into a broad and deep mountain lake which bubbles and hisses and then lies still. You see this lake for a moment, a shimmer, a twinkle behind a swath of trees, but the lake just as easily vanishes, gone, and when I run toward it it is no longer there. More trees, no lake. Mirages do not happen where there is plentiful water, this is a well known scientific fact.
You pull out a candy bar for comfort, you have several of them stowed away in your day pack, but the chocolate has no taste, no flavor. It melts into nothing and is swallowed just as easily. I turn towards the sun, which now has returned but is less potent than previously, and aim for the direction of a mountain I have seen before on these walks, a mountain I don’t know the name of but which has a recognizable shape and could serve as a landmark. I know this mountain. It is distant and ethereal, and on it lies the small town of Illusion, from which wafts a haunting flute tune. I know not if I hear this flute, this macabre recorder, in my ears or in my brain, but the effect is gone soon after, and it matters not from whence the flute originated, for the mountain leaves me alone on an empty plateau, a plateau of infinity and ideas, and the mountain is swallowed by the trees, which obscure it as they did the lake. Sky is now gathering, real rain, torrential downpour, get your jacket out, it’s going to be a doozy, and no tree on earth will save me from it. Crack, boom, gray water vapor congeals into a massive and black maw, a mouth from which pours the bucket, the flood upon my head. Rain is slick, ground is dripping and soggy, dirt slides right under my feet as if I were at the Olympics. Roots trip me up, as do small rocks in my path, mix of pine and broad leaf here. River somewhere nearby. Rushing, pouring, barely able to contain itself within its shores, breaking on impact, trees are swallowed whole by pools which form around my feet, puddles which could drown a rat. Hidden in one gulch lies a carcass of some kind, I see it but do not want to know it closely, it remains sheathed under branches and innumerable foliage, and emits a potent odor.
The wind is screaming and howling, the cosmos themselves are fighting up in those bleak and dismal clouds, and I am more soup than person now, liquid in its basic form, the skin a weak and wholly terrestrial defense against the pelting precipitation hurled at me from the heavens. I am scared of what I do not know. Never before have I seen a man such as this, standing still in the midst of what would turn any grown person’s skin to ice or a hole-pocked dread, this man stands firm. His face is up against the air, he breathes in the liquid, shivers as it courses through his veins with a kind of giddy delight. In one hand he holds a briefcase, his other he holds firm to his lapel. And though my eyes are bleary and my vision cannot be called sufficient, and I cannot see through this unnatural foaming liquid for more than twenty feet in any direction, I do know one thing about this man: That he stands with two other men, each identical replicas of him, as seen through a kaleidoscope or a filter. This man is not alone, but he has no company. He is singular but he is divided. These forms on either side of him are weaker but substantial. They, too, face the rain, they too clutch at the lapel as the sky screams fury and the world bubbles, his eyes shine in the darkness, they glow in that storm, they turn a fiery red, then a low muted green. Finally, they twinkle in the softest starlight, and then return to their blank state, unseen and unnoticed in this most secluded of all places, this endless downpour. He stands tall, though he is old, he has seen many things, many more things than this, this is but a meme setback to him, the weather means nothing.
The rain continues, the world goes grey and lifeless, and the mist mixes with the rain in an acidic hiss, and the clouds themselves are waging a war upon the ground beneath my feet. I hesitate near a log and observe the man from behind a worn tree, its bark picked off methodically. Sitting, seat is drenched, every corner is bathed in layers of caked sweat, permanent grease, and furthermore an inch on every side of a new ocean which drops instantly over me. The man cares not though he lives in the same land-based oceanic environment, he is a creature of depths, not necessarily wet ones, but depths and souls and areas which boggle the mind. His face cannot be seen, he wears no hat, for this would shield him from the elements he craves, the raw and open lashing of the deluge, the skies in rage. His briefcase is medium sized, cannot be seen well for the confounding visual impact of the rain, though it contains something, as he carries it with a weight, it weighs him to the ground while the wind whips and sucks and pulls him nearer to the battle and crack above. Trees bend like modeling clay in such winds, these winds pull the leaves off things, the rain aids in the job. Things die in weather like this. Water giveth life, water taketh away, the universal solvent is a catalyst of life but also an instrument of decay and neglect. I know this now, a rotting soup, an infinite void where organic matter lies in a fluidic dense mass, writing with vines and death.
Death being the word called to mind when one spots this ethereal figure in the midst of a paradoxical and wholly impossible event, one whose presence indicates multiplicity, for he is three people unto one. He is one man with two duplicates, and with a squint one can even make out five whole bodies, all performing the same actions at the same time, though the two on the edges are spectral and faint, distant as the town of illusion on the blank mountainside, unimportant as that drowsy and lulling flute, which wafted over trees and into valleys where it could be heard by farmers and tailors alike.
I am in a room and the room is hot, you guide me here. Suitcase, chloroform, various implements and instruments of degrading practices, held in those woods, but that’s all behind me as the world glides to a halt and the windows shine bright light, wafting of dust and corn. Carpet, not old carpet, the shaggy and unpredictable sort but a hard and frizzy variety made of nylon. I sit on a seat where ropes bind me, hold me, hard to breathe but easy to see. That’s the dickens of it, everything is visible here. Eerily visible. The rain was a dream but this is a harsh reality, this room and everything in it is corporeal, here, physical presence. Desk in the back, lit by one lamp, plugged into a socket on the left side, nothing on it save a microwave oven. Fridge. A fridge, has stickers on it, drawings, some look like they’re by kids but it’s too dark to tell for sure. The world is gray and moving is impossible. I wonder what’s in that fridge, a severed head or a can of soda pop. Makes a relaxing humming noise. Soothing, comforting, this is the relaxed and laid-back environment you’d take your child to, play around on the floor with some blocks. Against the wall, another sight- rows of folding chairs, the aluminum kind.
All the lights are turned off but these things are visible through the windows at the top- basement, that’s what it is, you’re subterranean, below what we might call the crust. This room is claustrophobic, stifling, the ceiling looks like it could fall on you. Cramped, yet the ventilation seems fine, in fact one of these windows is open. Beam comes from it, sharp, almost glaring, though not directly in your eyes. You try and shimmy in one direction or the other but you tip and after that you don’t want to rock back and forth anymore because this isn’t a home. This area is not lived in, it is decidedly artificial. Hokey, made for something besides life. Everything is synthetic, plastic, the lights are off but the glare is on, everywhere the shimmer and shine, the sleek smoothness to be found at a Costco warehouse, sure those places are nice but you wouldn’t want to live in one, would you? But a Costco is big and this room, though wide from front to back, is nothing if not unsettlingly small. Low on the top. This basement is not damp or dim, it is not accessed by wooden stairs and it will likely never be flooded out, this room is permanent and tangible, one of many cellars across the nation but one which unlike those other cellars rather than feeling like a moldy or cozy nook instead is a nameless plastic box. And those folding chairs, rested against yet another row, this one of cabinets the contents of which you’ll never know, I’ll never know. This is because and I quote the chairs are made for some unholy or otherwise indecent gathering, you can see them being hauled out of this storage and given new life upstairs. The ceiling is worn tile, not as artificial as the rest but still with a sense of inauthenticity.
These are not old world goods carved in some village shoppe, these are new things for mass consumption, surfaces without any dips or nicks to be seen. Your mouth is not held or bound, but there would be no sense in screaming as your screams would reach nobody. There are no sounds outside, birds sing but aside from that it’s eerily quiet. Upstairs, one other sound is added to the drone of the fridge- a vacuum. Some hobbled custodian keeping the premises clean. You’ll never see him or know him, but his presence is felt. Though artificial, this facility reeks of- well, it has a sense of belonging. Of being old and known. People have been in here, to be sure, they have sat at that desk, made themselves a lunch there, maybe. The fridge is on, people have eaten from it, opened its door, taken out some food, and walked out again. Those chairs have been sat on, they are not without purpose, and though they now reside in storage, eventually someone will haul them out and eventually someone will haul out the contents of the cabinets behind them, too, the ones with the straight down handles and the double doors. This room is not lived in but it is used frequently, shadow men and weary parents lug their young through these doors and out again, casual talk made after some distinctly American ceremony. If the human soul cannot sustain itself here, it can at least show up time and again though the room would not will it.
The vacuum upstairs removes dust so as to keep the rooms looking neat. This is a gathering place, a spot where people come together- but the floor is blank, nothing but that desk, some cabinets above that, presumably with forks and other implements- a community center of some kind, yes, a recreational facility, built for recreation. Union offices, maybe a swimming pool, pool tables and basketball court, here. Or a church, it could be a church, too, couldn’t it? The thought crosses my mind, your mind, we know something. Can see. Can feel. The chair you’re on isn’t one of the folding ones, this one has plush armrests and is made of wooden materials. Whoever tied me up has an intent, a direct motive, they didn’t just tie me to the folding kind, no, they got another breed of seat from another room entirely. Sit in the illuminated darkness and wait, time passes, time flies, you don’t even know how long you’ve been here, really, do you? You can’t say you do, and what’s more disturbing still is the fact that you can’t seem to grasp when it was you woke, whether it was in the trunk of an SUV or in an empty cornfield. Ropes were applied, you felt them as hands wound them up and kept them taut, force was used, besides that you know nothing.
Footsteps, murmurs. These murmurs come from a door behind you, the only entrance into the whole place, a locked closet on one distant wall and the windows giving these surroundings fresh and natural sunlight and air, but the door which lies three feet from your sweat drenched neck is the only way in and the only way out. Of this fact, you have no doubts. Perceptive eyes, yours. From behind this door can be heard furtive voices in corridors where conversation would be futile because all aspects are known, halls with plaques, buttons to elevators that stopped operation in 1922. The point being that these voices are seldom heard in this long and timeless period when your hands are held and your throat is parched. The voices grow more distant, and you lose hope of a feeding. Then, however, one voice barely audible to the human ear makes its way to the entrance, stops. The voice in all honesty quit about fifty feet away, but those hidden footsteps bring the promise of answers and of revelations. These are resumed and the door is opened, light and sound fill your weary body and you know there is another presence, certainly human, without a doubt male, a man who enters this place and then leaves quite often, and only now is entering this room with full knowledge and acceptance of what he’s done. The man steps behind you, I’m too tired to twist my neck and get a good look at his face. I know who he is, this is a silly game and I’m sick of playing it.
He’s holding something, too. The sunlight is reverted to dusk and crimson, and outside are the faraway noises of cars lifting from slumber and departing. Departing because they get softer and less audible, and the man stands near one wall, drowned in scarlet. He moves closer to the closet, next to it is a panel with more than three switches, of these he flips one. The room is revealed to be as massive as you thought it was and with the exact arrangement you recall, stark whites and a flat carpet that to an ant would be a plain of unimaginably lonely proportions. The man is old, seventies, white hair and jowls, dressed plain enough to be seen at a coffee shop but formally enough to be seen in a town hall meeting, he has walked roads and traveled miles, he’s been to gas stations but he is a man of habit, not a drifter. Make no mistake between the two, he has rituals, he has routines, he follows these routines to the best of his ability and in the whir of the flat and lifeless lights connected to unseen wires in the low ceiling, he is absolutely stark and rigid, a depiction of protocol. Lifeless, humorless, a man who knows things you can’t begin to guess. Lapel, a pin of some kind there. Decoration, he belongs to an association of like minded individuals, a mutual admiration society if you would. Meetings held, records kept in dusty and worn ledgers, records for his and his kind’s eyes only. His shoes are beaten, they have trodden many grounds, fields and areas. They are well kept, though, he is well kept. His face is wrinkled and suggests to me the color gray, he lives in exciting monotony. Sterile hubbub.
I see him plain against the walls, the walls are merely a backdrop for this man of ages and wisdom. He carries nothing. He walks with a decided step, a mannerism beaten into him through sheer habit. The room is built for men like him, men who in their golden years forget to walk, seven stages of man, last one’s a return to the first, know that. I know, too, that this visage does not come in a blur when subjected to harsh light, when exposed and thoroughly studied this specimen is less cryptic than at first glance. He fears my vision, knows that I know him and what he does, he treads softly on the synthetic carpet towards the chair where I sit incapacitated and blank, staring through him, behind him, through the walls and out the windows, to a blue and pleasant summer day. It is indeed the dust and corn, land of flat. In parks lovers can be seen huddled on benches, farms go on, cows huddle in fields, sun rises and sets and rises again, circle of life. This area is one of stagnation. It does not change, it keeps on as it has been. This is his power, the power of dust and if not complete rot then of static. Static setting, monotony, emptiness. He lives this way, he cannot be expected to live any other way. He projects vibrations of whimsy, excitement and a bold rainstorm, lightning crucifying him. He thrives on blur, on spin, on deliberate deception and on people believing he is multiple people when in fact he is the same man all the way through. His duplicates are present but faint, and if my eyes are opened entirely they vanish.
The lights are too good here, his tricks don’t operate as they would otherwise. He nears me, pauses, looks into my face, at my features, tries to remember them, but fails. He doesn’t know me how he thought he did, he was hoping for something else. Disappointment. He now walks directly over to the fridge, which calls his prostate and gives him a yearning for some month-old beverage. He rummages through its contents, small and spectral in the yellow light of the freezing chemicals, finally settles on a can of sparkling water. I remember it was a brand which no longer exists, like him a relic of a bygone era, a ghost which nonetheless leaves a tangible and recognizable impact on the present world. I sit and watch as this torture is conducted, the carbonated fluid singing his dry and wrinkled throat, and he looks at me, shakes the can around, tells me with his eyes that I am young and do not know what he has to give. He has something which I do not, this is clear, he is the superior figure in whatever deal we are about to make.
He crosses once over to the switch, returns the room to its darkened condition, though without the sunlight it is a crypt, a plastic coffin submerged in dirt and gravel. In this light his duplicates can be seen, silhouetted. They are no longer moist, now they are solid, I could touch one if my hands weren’t bound. He nears. Eyes red, gleaming, fiery, they burn in a frenzy of carnivorous lust, he sees something. He knows something. The eyes are what can be seen of him, the rest is obscured in the night, the night from which noises of crickets emanate through the window, noises of chirping insects not unlike that flute, noises which when presented alongside burning eyes create nothing more than the deepest paralysis of the human heart. My nerves are sent into convulsions, I open my mouth but nothing can burst from my pale form, I am being dissected and blurred as he was, turned into many multiples, endless reproductions of one essence. The room grows useless, a tangible place to which the following experience is irrelevant, which cannot hold what came next, as the burning orbs neared and took on an olive tone, dark, nude, forest, the color of natural beauty warped and twisted into dying and decaying rot. These two points meld into one in the darkness, hide behind murk and whispers and carry me, roughly, pain surging through every inch of my flesh as I am whirled back to the ground, dirt, left there to die. Above, birds sing. The sun rises on dewdrops and an empty patch of soil.
I raise the shades, help the guy up to his feet and see him off. The cup remains on the couch, and I promptly discard it, it holds no significance for me. Outside, he can be seen pressing the button for the elevator. I watch him until he leaves, know that he’s gone, then I sit at my desk and pull out an aspirin. Back to the water cooler, get the pill, swallow. I think, I have the faintest idea, that I might have that painting replaced soon. Might trade it out to a buddy of mine who’s also in the industry. Receptionist doesn’t know what happened in this room and I’m not telling her. The couch is sweaty and imprinted, it’s seen worse things than some but this has to be the worst yet, a man who though his brain functions as usual has been filled to the utmost capacity and can barely hold it all in. I don’t know if I would be able to, if I was given similar circumstances. I sit back on the cushions, sort through my files and make a detailed entry. Takes about an hour. At the end I lean back and light up, it’ll be over soon, I can drive back to the house, maybe I can convince her to go out to the new restaurant, everyone gives it rave reviews. I need to eat something, my stomach might reject it however. I have something to do, something which I know must be done. I pick up the set and punch in the numbers.

2020.07.10 01:42 kyleraymundv2 Therapy Session

Coat, hat, degree on the wall, professionally installed carpet. Couch is not a couch per se, more a sterile and pillowless recliner, designed to give one the best experience possible. Lights, walls, bookshelf in the back full of empty pamphlets, stuffed folders, to the brim with index cards and postcards and info on my past clients. Mahogany, not real mahogany, of course, the desk is made out of wood pulp covered by a layer of plywood designed to look like mahogany. Very dry, yet distinguished, and from a distance you could almost call me a professional. I am a professional, I have a degree in all sorts of mental gymnastics, but you wouldn’t know that.
I dress casually at all times, feeling that one can feel more at ease with slacks and a t-shirt, baseball cap flipped to the side. I am nearing middle age, 42, my eyes squint in dusty conditions and my hair is receding like Grunge. I pace from the bookshelf to the chair in the corner , sometimes. Still don’t know why that chair is there, for a wife or parent or something to sit down while their associate is sorted through, though to date I haven’t had any patients accompanied by anyone. Above this chair, which is plastic with comfy padded armrests, next to this is a potted plant, fake of course, about seven inches to the left is a portrait by some famous artist, of what I suppose one would call the impressionist period, Monet and that sort, only this one is a cheap replica I got for $100 at the local auction, the guy even stated that it was a replica, but who cares, it’s a nice painting and some good décor, more suggestive than a Rorschach test, though I still keep a deck of those stashed in the drawer, just in case.
The painting has ample strokes and pleasant overtones, but something about it makes the mind do acrobatics. I’ve had three of my quota mention that they’ve seen it somewhere before, in a TV show or something, that it was in the background, that it’s always been there. In their heads, they can’t seem to get it out. It’s not San Giorgio Maggiore, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it was painted in the same year. This one is simpler, no cathedral in the background, but like Giorgio, it’s set on the water, small fishing dock, maybe a port, and the shapes are just as obscured and vague in the evening haze. In the middle is a ship. Big thing, massive, calls to mind the steamers of old, and there are people on it, too, if you look very closely, faint, almost indiscernible silhouettes. Manning the rigging, wheel, etc. It’s pretty, but I often wonder who painted this and who these people are supposed to be. I also wonder what it would be like to exist in such an Impressionistic world. Get sucked in, feel this synthetic carpet move back under my feet as the noises of freshwater Venetian waves and murmuring ship hands grow closer and closer. I wonder sometimes, and my clientele give me the answers.
The man who came in last week should know, he walked through and sat on the couch, he was worried, I could tell by the wrinkles in his forehead, so I told him to lie down on there so he could spill all his worries out like a torrential flood right there in the middle of all this psychiatric foliage. I turned off the lights, they’re usually too bright for anyone to think, I only have them so I can work, then I went over to the wall and opened up the windows, let soft natural light and fresh air fill the room. There on the couch, legs periodically crossed, eyes looking at that replica of mine, he filled me in. The guy, I would say, was not by any means looking shabby. He had good hair, he was in his thirties, early thirties. Sandy hair, maybe from the Southwest, Caucasian, with certain features that indicates a decrepit and empty aura if not a decrepit look.
I muted my phone- push button landline, have yet to switch over to those cellular things, but it does have fax- walked over to him. I pulled out my sketchpad. I guess I didn’t pull it out of anywhere, it was lying on the desk, I’m sloppy with those things, shouldn’t leave notepads lying on the desk where anyone can read them, I should put it in the drawer. Flip through it, get to today, the guy moans a bit and turns over. I know this guy scheduled himself, didn’t just come in here, and I wonder if my receptionist saw what I’m seeing now or if this is just a hangover of some kind. The guy’s clothes are a bit wrinkled, wearing tennis shoes, classic sign of immaturity, or at least Freud would have me believe, but I try and keep an open mind. He points at my personal computer, asks if I could switch the monitor off, a request which I oblige. The darkness in the room now is stifling, almost irrepressible, synthetic materials turned to jungle and organic thriving something off in the corners of this large expanse.
The man has seen something, done something, something which draws him into shadows. Even the midday sun coming through the halfway down blinds cannot repress the feeling of missed opportunity which surrounds this man, a missed opportunity or a blemish on his past. I scribble these things and more down as he opens his lips, and what comes out is not a grunt, or a moan, but a monotone, stale voice. I think about how I am older than this man and yet have so much less than he does, he has experience. He’s seen things, been around things, knows where his head is at and what inning it is. A professional, I assume, looking good and maybe with a wife but no children, maybe she’s unable to have children. Once more, the painting calls to him, the ship so long ago with its rigging and anchor, and ant people scuttling around. Though the ship and the sky itself is obscured in a twilight haze obscured by a real midday haze, atmospheric discombobulation, his eyes are nonetheless enchanted by the world this picture paints. It is because as I have said he is a man of questions and darkness and twilight, and some twilight long ago in Venice or perhaps even Malta the sun is going down and people in near-empty streets are sharing obscure European food in corner cafes, a precursor to that one with the three men alone in a corner café on a dark New York City at night. The ships make ambient noises as their prows cut through the water, and above birds fly open and opaque in the orange hue. His eyes are drawn to this world, and I listen in the darkness as his corneas are sucked across the room.
I know you won’t believe me, he says. Nobody will believe this, you hack, you fraud, this is something for me and me alone. Water, please? His arm gestures, I walk out the door, down the hallway, make a right, to the water cooler, which gurgles softly, pours cool sweet sugar free liquid into a sterile and generic paper cup with swirling brown lines on the sides. Receptionist is at the desk, browsing through something, She’s a good lady. My wife gives me strange looks, she probably thinks I’m cheating on the side with this ditzy 22 year old, yeah right. Anyway. Back in the room, around the corner, shut the door with a soft and svelte click. Give the guy his water. He raises himself with his left elbow, left may have some subtext, must mean something, everything means something unless it doesn’t. Sips it long and hard, glugs that right down his throat until the cup is devoid of even the smallest drop. Still sweating profusely. Eyes like a scared rabbit. Outside, one minute, the light was so scathing. In here it’s cool and dark and night in Venice, and masked figures race along stone pathways, bridges stretch over dark rippling canals over which the lone gondola carries a night passenger to some unknown bistro. Lamps over the canals, too, they reflect sharply on those depthless waves.
And at the same time it’s a blue day outside, postcard blue, traffic can be heard and the buildings resound a sharp grey against the monotone sky. 42 stories down, it’s the lunch hour, revolving doors and cheap trinkets, street cart food and newsstands with all the usual tabloids. Why am I so nervous? I swivel my seat around, get out from behind the desk, right next to him. That’s it. Keep my eyes away from the painting. Whatever you do, don’t look at that painting. You don’t want to know.
Picture if you would a typical day in Seattle. I can’t, I’ve never been there, wouldn’t know the first thing about the place, especially 15 years ago, but picture it anyway. Space Needle, whatever. Pike Place Market, is that in Seattle? I can see it, rows of shops stretching on towards the horizon. We have a mall here, but not a full-on market, just a mall. Cheap shops, people walking and talking on their doodads, parking lot that goes on and on. Miles of labyrinthine corridors lined by the outlets of commerce. He says something along these lines. Mental image, not of Venice this time but of a city of contrasts, woods, mountains, also beaches and city blocks. Confusing place, confusing times, confusing everything, an aesthetic that would lend a hand towards the downright obscene or the unabashedly lovely. I can tell as he recounts this that he’s being awfully genuine, and as he paints this idyllic past I hesitate to use the notepad as this all seems so irrelevant. Gradually, my arm falls, and the pencil drops to the floor. Five minutes later, the notepad joins it.
I stare out the window as his voice loses its monotone qualities and picks right up to speed. I hear about places and people I’ve never heard about, either this guy is a very convincing storyteller or he really was there. Dates line up. He tells me about a school, the girls he went out with, friends he had. I don’t tell him to cut to the chase but I don’t want to rush him and my appointments are empty today. Always slow on Tuesdays. These anecdotes are words, phrases, congealing into an apt picture of the times. He tells me about a concert he went to, the aura of the era, the signs of the times. I’m nostalgic, but not as much as he is, because I’m older than him and he really appreciated these times while they happened. His adolescence doesn’t sound too bad, I think, decent enough, both his parents were supportive, he had lots of friends, even went to dances, where apparently he was popular. Showed up at most of the parties he was invited to, didn’t do drugs but did drink, though not in excess, not in levels that would damage one’s liver or mind. He seems to tell these fuzzy memories as if they happened to someone else, as if they couldn’t have happened to him.
He doesn’t warrant these stories, he wasn’t this good, he didn’t have this much fun, so on. There’s something he’s hiding from me. I offer him a candy, bribe, whole bowl of them right there on my table. Sure it’s cliché? But whatcha gonna do to get someone to open up other than to offer them a treat? I got the idea after seeing the Michelle Pfeiffer movie earlier this year, fireballs, what a great idea, I thought, because it is, right? Except when I went to the store, they didn’t stock fireballs, because of course they didn’t, but they did have Lemonheads, and I figure either way an extreme taste is an extreme taste, right? Gets the juices flowing, gets the tongue moving. Take this, I say, drop the candy in his hand. He unwraps it slowly and thoughtfully, all the while his tongue still going, wrapper crinkling, and he gives it to me and I stuff the wrapper in my pocket, figure to get up and toss it would be too much of a distraction. I’m also scared, though of what I don’t know. This pining and waxing gets on my nerves, the present is enough already without dwelling on the past. I keep in mind, however, that repression is a factor at play here, and between the smacking and rolling that crunchy citrus ball of sugar around from tooth to jaw and back again I get the idea that something is going on in his mind more than something is going on in his mouth, that his mind is a question and I want to answer it, probe it, feel it the way he handled that wrapper, mull over it. Beautiful mind. Dark room, quizzical shadows fall over the furniture. Scene, Action. Piece of cake.
Woods, open and clear day, and across these woods, behind me, is one of those mountains which appears mind-bogglingly high because we’re at sea level. I, however, am stuck between the two. In my hand is a portable cassette player, expensive. My father bought this trinket for me when I was 13, told me it was the wave of the future and he had been nurtured by vinyl as a child. Loud noises fill my mind through thick wires which lead to a strange outfit on my head, one which covers both my ears through the use of a connection on top, a headband of sorts. I turn this device off, store it away, sling the wires over my shoulder, stash the thing in my pocket. Compact, light, easy. Forest noises, wooded glade, in a sense I wish the entire state was like this, a vast expanse of trees producing oxygen, oxygen which fills my lungs. It is midday and the sun is hot but not overly so, and I am dressed for the occasion. Mountains surround these shadowed glades, massive and overpowering and near-Canadian, although they lack the intensity of Canadian slopes.
Sun plays tricks on the needles, leaves are sparse but they shimmy and shake in the rosy glow. Everywhere you can see the green, the overpowering and steady green, the always-present and nearly-not-natural green. Green are the bushes, the herbs, the small trees and the big trees. Green, too, are the mosses and lichens. I do not fear these effervescent structures, in fact they call to me. I am propelled over root and rot to ancient structures time forgot, a crumbling bridge here, an old aqueduct there, left abandoned and in misery out where nobody will find them and man maintains them seldom to none. I do not find them, they find me nonetheless, because decay is very powerful here, green is very powerful here. Green is everywhere. Green can take a structure which took hours and years to build, filed away by some bureaucratic office, and reduce it all to a pile of rubble.
What is green? Green is chaos, green is the longing and the wanting of privacy and the acquisition of said solidarity, and once this is acquired one doesn’t want to leave, you’ve caught a bug, the green bug, one could say. Ferns here, too, old dinosaur things, slippery and wet, and you wonder how they haven’t decayed. You wonder how this all hasn’t decayed yet, it’s so wet and rainy, you’d think it would encrust and grow mold, become a massive soup of rot and fungus, with mountains to hold it all in, swamps and puddles and torrential moistness held in deep dark foaming puddles under the moon while the wind whistles through the dead branches, dead of course because all the leaves have fallen off and gone to the filth reserves. You wonder this, because in the old days, world war one when they had a supply of fresh boots, trenchfoot would seep up through the toes and ligaments. Shortage of boots, and though the foot was living tissue, it rotted away all the same. Rotted in the dirty crevasses, those muddy foxholes, it rotted all the same. You saw this condition referenced on a medical drama some years ago, and it has stuck with you ever since. Me ever since. I turn up and see a flight of birds, as they hop from one forest to another, up north or down south, or maybe they’re just feeling uncomfortable. The sun has gone behind clouds, hiding itself, and the heat gives way to a slight shiver, a trickling and irreversible breeze, nature pushing energy onto you.
You stop, I stop, we all stop for this forest, a forest which defies all expectations. Acres and acres away from life where the laws of physics do not apply. Sequestered men and women who long for loneliness under the cold rock faces of the Cascades. This is ancient land, sacred land, land with channels of icy thirst dripping from every orifice. It is shrouded in mist, held in the grip of something which lends it a mystique, a silence between the cliffs. These hills are here, these mountains are there, in just such a way as to boggle the mind, to make one lost and afraid in the dark on a night when the mist is down and there is no moon, and one is left struggling down slopes, between the trees, into yet another valley and yet another steep slope which defies all logic, and the night does not end. One sits beneath a pine and grows weary, the organs begin to self cannibalize, the bones grow weak, the muscles grow inactive, and by morning what is found is more rotting soup than human. Such is the power of water. Cascades, water, rushing, pouring down every cliff onto other cliffs into a broad and deep mountain lake which bubbles and hisses and then lies still. You see this lake for a moment, a shimmer, a twinkle behind a swath of trees, but the lake just as easily vanishes, gone, and when I run toward it it is no longer there. More trees, no lake. Mirages do not happen where there is plentiful water, this is a well known scientific fact.
You pull out a candy bar for comfort, you have several of them stowed away in your day pack, but the chocolate has no taste, no flavor. It melts into nothing and is swallowed just as easily. I turn towards the sun, which now has returned but is less potent than previously, and aim for the direction of a mountain I have seen before on these walks, a mountain I don’t know the name of but which has a recognizable shape and could serve as a landmark. I know this mountain. It is distant and ethereal, and on it lies the small town of Illusion, from which wafts a haunting flute tune. I know not if I hear this flute, this macabre recorder, in my ears or in my brain, but the effect is gone soon after, and it matters not from whence the flute originated, for the mountain leaves me alone on an empty plateau, a plateau of infinity and ideas, and the mountain is swallowed by the trees, which obscure it as they did the lake. Sky is now gathering, real rain, torrential downpour, get your jacket out, it’s going to be a doozy, and no tree on earth will save me from it. Crack, boom, gray water vapor congeals into a massive and black maw, a mouth from which pours the bucket, the flood upon my head. Rain is slick, ground is dripping and soggy, dirt slides right under my feet as if I were at the Olympics. Roots trip me up, as do small rocks in my path, mix of pine and broad leaf here. River somewhere nearby. Rushing, pouring, barely able to contain itself within its shores, breaking on impact, trees are swallowed whole by pools which form around my feet, puddles which could drown a rat. Hidden in one gulch lies a carcass of some kind, I see it but do not want to know it closely, it remains sheathed under branches and innumerable foliage, and emits a potent odor.
The wind is screaming and howling, the cosmos themselves are fighting up in those bleak and dismal clouds, and I am more soup than person now, liquid in its basic form, the skin a weak and wholly terrestrial defense against the pelting precipitation hurled at me from the heavens. I am scared of what I do not know. Never before have I seen a man such as this, standing still in the midst of what would turn any grown person’s skin to ice or a hole-pocked dread, this man stands firm. His face is up against the air, he breathes in the liquid, shivers as it courses through his veins with a kind of giddy delight. In one hand he holds a briefcase, his other he holds firm to his lapel. And though my eyes are bleary and my vision cannot be called sufficient, and I cannot see through this unnatural foaming liquid for more than twenty feet in any direction, I do know one thing about this man: That he stands with two other men, each identical replicas of him, as seen through a kaleidoscope or a filter. This man is not alone, but he has no company. He is singular but he is divided. These forms on either side of him are weaker but substantial. They, too, face the rain, they too clutch at the lapel as the sky screams fury and the world bubbles, his eyes shine in the darkness, they glow in that storm, they turn a fiery red, then a low muted green. Finally, they twinkle in the softest starlight, and then return to their blank state, unseen and unnoticed in this most secluded of all places, this endless downpour. He stands tall, though he is old, he has seen many things, many more things than this, this is but a meme setback to him, the weather means nothing.
The rain continues, the world goes grey and lifeless, and the mist mixes with the rain in an acidic hiss, and the clouds themselves are waging a war upon the ground beneath my feet. I hesitate near a log and observe the man from behind a worn tree, its bark picked off methodically. Sitting, seat is drenched, every corner is bathed in layers of caked sweat, permanent grease, and furthermore an inch on every side of a new ocean which drops instantly over me. The man cares not though he lives in the same land-based oceanic environment, he is a creature of depths, not necessarily wet ones, but depths and souls and areas which boggle the mind. His face cannot be seen, he wears no hat, for this would shield him from the elements he craves, the raw and open lashing of the deluge, the skies in rage. His briefcase is medium sized, cannot be seen well for the confounding visual impact of the rain, though it contains something, as he carries it with a weight, it weighs him to the ground while the wind whips and sucks and pulls him nearer to the battle and crack above. Trees bend like modeling clay in such winds, these winds pull the leaves off things, the rain aids in the job. Things die in weather like this. Water giveth life, water taketh away, the universal solvent is a catalyst of life but also an instrument of decay and neglect. I know this now, a rotting soup, an infinite void where organic matter lies in a fluidic dense mass, writing with vines and death.
Death being the word called to mind when one spots this ethereal figure in the midst of a paradoxical and wholly impossible event, one whose presence indicates multiplicity, for he is three people unto one. He is one man with two duplicates, and with a squint one can even make out five whole bodies, all performing the same actions at the same time, though the two on the edges are spectral and faint, distant as the town of illusion on the blank mountainside, unimportant as that drowsy and lulling flute, which wafted over trees and into valleys where it could be heard by farmers and tailors alike.
I am in a room and the room is hot, you guide me here. Suitcase, chloroform, various implements and instruments of degrading practices, held in those woods, but that’s all behind me as the world glides to a halt and the windows shine bright light, wafting of dust and corn. Carpet, not old carpet, the shaggy and unpredictable sort but a hard and frizzy variety made of nylon. I sit on a seat where ropes bind me, hold me, hard to breathe but easy to see. That’s the dickens of it, everything is visible here. Eerily visible. The rain was a dream but this is a harsh reality, this room and everything in it is corporeal, here, physical presence. Desk in the back, lit by one lamp, plugged into a socket on the left side, nothing on it save a microwave oven. Fridge. A fridge, has stickers on it, drawings, some look like they’re by kids but it’s too dark to tell for sure. The world is gray and moving is impossible. I wonder what’s in that fridge, a severed head or a can of soda pop. Makes a relaxing humming noise. Soothing, comforting, this is the relaxed and laid-back environment you’d take your child to, play around on the floor with some blocks. Against the wall, another sight- rows of folding chairs, the aluminum kind.
All the lights are turned off but these things are visible through the windows at the top- basement, that’s what it is, you’re subterranean, below what we might call the crust. This room is claustrophobic, stifling, the ceiling looks like it could fall on you. Cramped, yet the ventilation seems fine, in fact one of these windows is open. Beam comes from it, sharp, almost glaring, though not directly in your eyes. You try and shimmy in one direction or the other but you tip and after that you don’t want to rock back and forth anymore because this isn’t a home. This area is not lived in, it is decidedly artificial. Hokey, made for something besides life. Everything is synthetic, plastic, the lights are off but the glare is on, everywhere the shimmer and shine, the sleek smoothness to be found at a Costco warehouse, sure those places are nice but you wouldn’t want to live in one, would you? But a Costco is big and this room, though wide from front to back, is nothing if not unsettlingly small. Low on the top. This basement is not damp or dim, it is not accessed by wooden stairs and it will likely never be flooded out, this room is permanent and tangible, one of many cellars across the nation but one which unlike those other cellars rather than feeling like a moldy or cozy nook instead is a nameless plastic box. And those folding chairs, rested against yet another row, this one of cabinets the contents of which you’ll never know, I’ll never know. This is because and I quote the chairs are made for some unholy or otherwise indecent gathering, you can see them being hauled out of this storage and given new life upstairs. The ceiling is worn tile, not as artificial as the rest but still with a sense of inauthenticity.
These are not old world goods carved in some village shoppe, these are new things for mass consumption, surfaces without any dips or nicks to be seen. Your mouth is not held or bound, but there would be no sense in screaming as your screams would reach nobody. There are no sounds outside, birds sing but aside from that it’s eerily quiet. Upstairs, one other sound is added to the drone of the fridge- a vacuum. Some hobbled custodian keeping the premises clean. You’ll never see him or know him, but his presence is felt. Though artificial, this facility reeks of- well, it has a sense of belonging. Of being old and known. People have been in here, to be sure, they have sat at that desk, made themselves a lunch there, maybe. The fridge is on, people have eaten from it, opened its door, taken out some food, and walked out again. Those chairs have been sat on, they are not without purpose, and though they now reside in storage, eventually someone will haul them out and eventually someone will haul out the contents of the cabinets behind them, too, the ones with the straight down handles and the double doors. This room is not lived in but it is used frequently, shadow men and weary parents lug their young through these doors and out again, casual talk made after some distinctly American ceremony. If the human soul cannot sustain itself here, it can at least show up time and again though the room would not will it.
The vacuum upstairs removes dust so as to keep the rooms looking neat. This is a gathering place, a spot where people come together- but the floor is blank, nothing but that desk, some cabinets above that, presumably with forks and other implements- a community center of some kind, yes, a recreational facility, built for recreation. Union offices, maybe a swimming pool, pool tables and basketball court, here. Or a church, it could be a church, too, couldn’t it? The thought crosses my mind, your mind, we know something. Can see. Can feel. The chair you’re on isn’t one of the folding ones, this one has plush armrests and is made of wooden materials. Whoever tied me up has an intent, a direct motive, they didn’t just tie me to the folding kind, no, they got another breed of seat from another room entirely. Sit in the illuminated darkness and wait, time passes, time flies, you don’t even know how long you’ve been here, really, do you? You can’t say you do, and what’s more disturbing still is the fact that you can’t seem to grasp when it was you woke, whether it was in the trunk of an SUV or in an empty cornfield. Ropes were applied, you felt them as hands wound them up and kept them taut, force was used, besides that you know nothing.
Footsteps, murmurs. These murmurs come from a door behind you, the only entrance into the whole place, a locked closet on one distant wall and the windows giving these surroundings fresh and natural sunlight and air, but the door which lies three feet from your sweat drenched neck is the only way in and the only way out. Of this fact, you have no doubts. Perceptive eyes, yours. From behind this door can be heard furtive voices in corridors where conversation would be futile because all aspects are known, halls with plaques, buttons to elevators that stopped operation in 1922. The point being that these voices are seldom heard in this long and timeless period when your hands are held and your throat is parched. The voices grow more distant, and you lose hope of a feeding. Then, however, one voice barely audible to the human ear makes its way to the entrance, stops. The voice in all honesty quit about fifty feet away, but those hidden footsteps bring the promise of answers and of revelations. These are resumed and the door is opened, light and sound fill your weary body and you know there is another presence, certainly human, without a doubt male, a man who enters this place and then leaves quite often, and only now is entering this room with full knowledge and acceptance of what he’s done. The man steps behind you, I’m too tired to twist my neck and get a good look at his face. I know who he is, this is a silly game and I’m sick of playing it.
He’s holding something, too. The sunlight is reverted to dusk and crimson, and outside are the faraway noises of cars lifting from slumber and departing. Departing because they get softer and less audible, and the man stands near one wall, drowned in scarlet. He moves closer to the closet, next to it is a panel with more than three switches, of these he flips one. The room is revealed to be as massive as you thought it was and with the exact arrangement you recall, stark whites and a flat carpet that to an ant would be a plain of unimaginably lonely proportions. The man is old, seventies, white hair and jowls, dressed plain enough to be seen at a coffee shop but formally enough to be seen in a town hall meeting, he has walked roads and traveled miles, he’s been to gas stations but he is a man of habit, not a drifter. Make no mistake between the two, he has rituals, he has routines, he follows these routines to the best of his ability and in the whir of the flat and lifeless lights connected to unseen wires in the low ceiling, he is absolutely stark and rigid, a depiction of protocol. Lifeless, humorless, a man who knows things you can’t begin to guess. Lapel, a pin of some kind there. Decoration, he belongs to an association of like minded individuals, a mutual admiration society if you would. Meetings held, records kept in dusty and worn ledgers, records for his and his kind’s eyes only. His shoes are beaten, they have trodden many grounds, fields and areas. They are well kept, though, he is well kept. His face is wrinkled and suggests to me the color gray, he lives in exciting monotony. Sterile hubbub.
I see him plain against the walls, the walls are merely a backdrop for this man of ages and wisdom. He carries nothing. He walks with a decided step, a mannerism beaten into him through sheer habit. The room is built for men like him, men who in their golden years forget to walk, seven stages of man, last one’s a return to the first, know that. I know, too, that this visage does not come in a blur when subjected to harsh light, when exposed and thoroughly studied this specimen is less cryptic than at first glance. He fears my vision, knows that I know him and what he does, he treads softly on the synthetic carpet towards the chair where I sit incapacitated and blank, staring through him, behind him, through the walls and out the windows, to a blue and pleasant summer day. It is indeed the dust and corn, land of flat. In parks lovers can be seen huddled on benches, farms go on, cows huddle in fields, sun rises and sets and rises again, circle of life. This area is one of stagnation. It does not change, it keeps on as it has been. This is his power, the power of dust and if not complete rot then of static. Static setting, monotony, emptiness. He lives this way, he cannot be expected to live any other way. He projects vibrations of whimsy, excitement and a bold rainstorm, lightning crucifying him. He thrives on blur, on spin, on deliberate deception and on people believing he is multiple people when in fact he is the same man all the way through. His duplicates are present but faint, and if my eyes are opened entirely they vanish.
The lights are too good here, his tricks don’t operate as they would otherwise. He nears me, pauses, looks into my face, at my features, tries to remember them, but fails. He doesn’t know me how he thought he did, he was hoping for something else. Disappointment. He now walks directly over to the fridge, which calls his prostate and gives him a yearning for some month-old beverage. He rummages through its contents, small and spectral in the yellow light of the freezing chemicals, finally settles on a can of sparkling water. I remember it was a brand which no longer exists, like him a relic of a bygone era, a ghost which nonetheless leaves a tangible and recognizable impact on the present world. I sit and watch as this torture is conducted, the carbonated fluid singing his dry and wrinkled throat, and he looks at me, shakes the can around, tells me with his eyes that I am young and do not know what he has to give. He has something which I do not, this is clear, he is the superior figure in whatever deal we are about to make.
He crosses once over to the switch, returns the room to its darkened condition, though without the sunlight it is a crypt, a plastic coffin submerged in dirt and gravel. In this light his duplicates can be seen, silhouetted. They are no longer moist, now they are solid, I could touch one if my hands weren’t bound. He nears. Eyes red, gleaming, fiery, they burn in a frenzy of carnivorous lust, he sees something. He knows something. The eyes are what can be seen of him, the rest is obscured in the night, the night from which noises of crickets emanate through the window, noises of chirping insects not unlike that flute, noises which when presented alongside burning eyes create nothing more than the deepest paralysis of the human heart. My nerves are sent into convulsions, I open my mouth but nothing can burst from my pale form, I am being dissected and blurred as he was, turned into many multiples, endless reproductions of one essence. The room grows useless, a tangible place to which the following experience is irrelevant, which cannot hold what came next, as the burning orbs neared and took on an olive tone, dark, nude, forest, the color of natural beauty warped and twisted into dying and decaying rot. These two points meld into one in the darkness, hide behind murk and whispers and carry me, roughly, pain surging through every inch of my flesh as I am whirled back to the ground, dirt, left there to die. Above, birds sing. The sun rises on dewdrops and an empty patch of soil.
I raise the shades, help the guy up to his feet and see him off. The cup remains on the couch, and I promptly discard it, it holds no significance for me. Outside, he can be seen pressing the button for the elevator. I watch him until he leaves, know that he’s gone, then I sit at my desk and pull out an aspirin. Back to the water cooler, get the pill, swallow. I think, I have the faintest idea, that I might have that painting replaced soon. Might trade it out to a buddy of mine who’s also in the industry. Receptionist doesn’t know what happened in this room and I’m not telling her. The couch is sweaty and imprinted, it’s seen worse things than some but this has to be the worst yet, a man who though his brain functions as usual has been filled to the utmost capacity and can barely hold it all in. I don’t know if I would be able to, if I was given similar circumstances. I sit back on the cushions, sort through my files and make a detailed entry. Takes about an hour. At the end I lean back and light up, it’ll be over soon, I can drive back to the house, maybe I can convince her to go out to the new restaurant, everyone gives it rave reviews. I need to eat something, my stomach might reject it however. I have something to do, something which I know must be done. I pick up the set and punch in the numbers.

Dude was recognized from the past, my boss says he got caught trying to boost stuff in the past. My boss was bird-dogging him and noticed some stuff he was carrying he was suddenly not carrying. We ask him where he put it and he tells us he left it in another part of the store. Boss says alright get out of here I remember you, dude freaks out saying fuck us. Then he pulls out a box cutter knife and starts waving it around so our clerk called the law. Dude storms out, walks back in and says I didn't steal shit and pulls his pants down and shows us his wiener and balloon knot. A guy outside said he noticed the guy flash everyone and saw the knife so he laid him out. Hit him one time and the dude took off. Police got moderately involved but I hope that guy learns from this and doesn't pull his pants down in front of a bunch of people again.

During this lockdown I have been tasked with raising my nephews in the absence of my bil and sister as they are both doctors and we are following strict guidelines to remain separate. `My eldest nephew had been bullying his younger brother and some kids over the internet. He was generally being a dick. I immediately realised that he was a bully but also hurting but I didn’t give him any excuses for his bad behaviour. I made sure to be vocal and reprimand him every time he was crossing the line or being even vaguely inappropriate towards his brother. We started to have regular conversations on where his sour attitude was coming from and at first it just seemed like he was born to be an asshole but I persisted. ` After awhile he opened up to me and he started to feel like he was being heard and was then able to explain to me that he felt like he was a disappointment to our family as we are all fairly academic and successful in our professional lives and he was worried since he isn’t so academically inclined. He was also insecure about his sexuality (because his voice was still child like and not like his friends/little brother, so he thought that made him gay) and was therefore being overly aggressive and macho. He felt like he was the ugly, dumb older brother who could never do right compared to his younger brother, he also felt insecure about his lack of hair growth both facially and down below. I can honestly say that in the past few months he has been with me he has drastically changed because I took the time to listen and give him all the love I had for him. I apologised for not making him feel more loved/not showing him how much I loved him and how important he was to me and his parents. `We had a family zoom chat with his parents and discussed all his frustrations and upsets with his parents,siblings and even me. We all agreed to praise him more and to view his achievements with enthusiasm and pride it deserved. We assured him that he will never ever be compared to anyone else again. ` Honestly in a few months he went from being this annoying always bad ass kid to the kid I always knew he was deep down. He now is helpful, kind and very fun to be around. He has stopped bullying his brother, they not only get along but have started to be like friends and we issued letters of apologies to the kids he was bullying(initially he wanted to text them but I persuaded him to reconsider),all the kids were gracious enough to accept his apologies. ` Sometimes kids need to be reminded loudly and often how loved and wanted they are.`

Trump was over a billion in debt and the Russians [bailed him out.](https://foreignpolicy.com/2018/12/21/how-russian-money-helped-save-trumps-business/) `► Trump was first compromised by the Russians in the 80s. In 1984, the Russian Mafia began to use[ Trump real estate to launder money.](https://www.washingtonpost.com/outlook/is-there-a-case-for-trump-putin-collaboration-years-before-the-campaign/2018/08/16/00578f1e-9440-11e8-80e1-00e80e1fdf43_story.html) In 1987, the Soviet ambassador to the United Nations, Yuri Dubinin, arranged for Trump and his then-wife, Ivana, to enjoy an all-expense-paid trip to Moscow to consider possible business prospects. Only seven weeks after his trip, Trump ran full-page ads in the Boston Globe, the NYT and WaPO calling for, in effect, the dismantling of the postwar Western foreign policy alliance. The whole Trump/Russian connection started out as laundering money for the Russian mob through Trump's real estate, but evolved into something far bigger.` ► In 1984, David Bogatin — a convicted Russian mobster and close ally of Semion Mogilevich, a major Russian mob boss — met with Trump in Trump Tower right after it opened. Bogatin bought five condos from Trump at that meeting. Those condos were later seized by the government, which claimed they were used to launder money for the Russian mob. ([NY Times](https://www.nytimes.com/1992/04/30/nyregion/entrepreneur-who-left-us-is-back-awaiting-sentence.html), Apr 30, 1992) `► Felix Sater is a Russian-born former mobster, and former managing director of NY real estate conglomerate Bayrock Group LLC located on the 24th floor of Trump Tower. He is a convict who became a govt cooperator for the FBI and other agencies. He grew up with Michael Cohen--Trump's former \"fixer\" attorney. Cohen's family owned El Caribe, which was a mob hangout for the Russian Mafia in Brooklyn. Cohen had ties to Ukrainian oligarchs through his in-laws and his brother's in-laws. Felix Sater's father had ties to the Russian mob. This goes back more than 30 years.` ► Trump was $4 billion in debt after his Atlantic City casinos went bankrupt. No U.S. bank would touch him. Then foreign money began flowing in through Bayrock (mentioned above). Bayrock was run by two investors: Tevfik Arif, a Kazakhstan-born former Soviet official who drew on bottomless sources of money from the former Soviet republic; and Felix Sater, a Russian-born businessman who had pleaded guilty in the 1990s to a huge stock-fraud scheme involving the Russian mafia. Bayrock partnered with Trump in 2005 and poured money into the Trump organization under the legal guise of licensing his name and property management. `► In July 2008, the height of the housing bust, Trump sold a mansion in Palm Beach for $95 million to Dmitry Rybolovlev, a Russian oligarch. Trump had purchased it four years earlier for $41.35 million. The sale price was nearly $54 million more than Trump had paid for the property. Again, this was the height of the recession when all other property had plummeted in value.` ► Semion Mogilevich was the brains behind the Russian Mafia. Mogilevich operatives have been using Trump real estate for decades to launder money. That means Russian Mafia operatives have been part of his fortune for years. Many of them owned condos in Trump Towers and other properties. They were running operations out of Trump's crown jewel. `► From Craig Unger's AMA: \"Early on, a source told me that all this was tied to Semion Mogilevich, the powerful Russian mobster. I had never even heard of him, but I immediately went to a database that listed the owners of all properties in NY state and looked up all the Trump properties. Every time I found a Russian sounding name, I would Google, and add Mogilevich. When you do investigative reporting, you anticipate drilling a number of dry holes, but almost everyone I googled turned out to be a Russian mobster. Again and again. If you know New York you don't expect Trump Tower to be a high crime neighborhood, but there were far too many Russian mobsters in Trump properties for it to be a coincidence.\"` ► So many Russians bought Trump apartments at his developments in Florida that the area became known as Little Moscow. The developers of two of his hotels were Russians with significant links to the Russian mob. The late leader of that mob in the United States, Vyacheslav Kirillovich Ivankov, was [living at Trump Tower](https://newrepublic.com/article/143586/trumps-russian-laundromat-trump-tower-luxury-high-rises-dirty-money-international-crime-syndicate) `► According to a Bloomberg investigation (3/16/2017) into Trump World Tower, “a third of units sold on floors 76 through 83 by 2004 involved people or limited liability companies connected to Russia and neighboring states.”` ► In 2013, Federal agents busted an “ultraexclusive, high-stakes, illegal poker ring” run by Russian gangsters out of Trump Tower. They operated card games, illegal gambling websites, and a global sports book and laundered more than $100 million. A condo directly below one owned by Trump reportedly served as HQ for a “sophisticated money-laundering scheme” connected to Semion Mogilevich. `► The Russia Mafia is part and parcel of Russian intelligence. Russia is a mafia state. that is not a metaphor. Putin is head of the Mafia. So the fact that they have been operating out of the home of the president of the United States is deeply disturbing.` ► Rudy Giuliani famously prosecuted the Italian mob while he was a federal prosecutor, yet the Russian mob was allowed to thrive. Now he's deeply entwined in the business of Trump and Russian oligarchs. Giuiani appointed Semyon Kislin to the NYC Economic Development Council in 1990, and the FBI described Kislin as having ties tot he Russian mob. Of course, it made good political sense for Giuliani to get headlines for smashing the Italian mob. `► A lot of Republicans in Washington are implicated. Boatloads of Russian money went to the GOP--often in legal ways. The NRA got as much as $70M from Russia, then funneled it to the GOP. The Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee lead by McConnel got millions from Leonard Blavatnik. In the 90s, the Russians began sending money to top GOP leaders, like Speaker of the House Tom Delay. Unger's book alleges that most of the GOP leadership has been compromised by RU money.` ► At the Cityscape USA’s Bridging US and the Emerging Real Estate Markets Conference held in Manhattan, on September 9, 10, and 11, 2008, Trump Jr. was frank about the tide of Russian money supporting the family business, saying \"...And in terms of high-end product influx into the US, Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets.\" `► Eric Trump told golf reporter James Dodson in 2014 that the Trump Organization was able to expand during the financial crisis because “We don’t rely on American banks. We have all the funding we need out of Russia.”` ► Russian oligarchs [co-signed Trump’s Deutsche bank loans.](https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/lawrence-odonnell-source-says-russian-oligarchs-co-signed-trumps-deutsche-bank-loans) `Trump now gleefully takes cues from Putin:` ► At the end of 2018, Putin and his allies started making a strong push for a resolution that would justify their country’s 1979 invasion of Afghanistan and reverse an 1989 vote backed by Mikhail Gorbachev that condemned it. The Putinists’ goal was to pass the resolution by Feb. There is no one on this side of the Atlantic who thinks the USSR was justified in invading Afghanistan. And out of nowhere, on January 2nd, Trump came out strongly supporting Russia's 1979 invasion of Afghanistan. `► Trump went against American intelligence on North Korean missiles. He told the FBI he didn't believe their intelligence because Putin told him otherwise. \"I don't care, I believe Putin\"` ► Trump met in secret with Putin the G20 summit in November 2018, without note takers. 19 days later, he announced a withdrawal from Syria. As a note, Trump conducted FIVE completely private meetings and conferences with Putin, and has gone to great lengths to prevent literally anyone, even people in his administration, from learning what was discussed. `► Trump refused to enforce sanctions legally codified into law - and in some cases reversed standing sanctions on Russian companies.` ► He has denounced his own intelligence agencies in a press conference with Putin on election meddling - and publicly endorsed Putin's version of events. `► Trump pulled out of the INF treaty with no explanation, which allows Putin to create long-range hypersonic missiles that threaten Europe with impunity. The US already has all the weaponry that the INF would ban the development of, so this offers us literally nothing, while allowing Russia to develop powerful new weapons to challenge our allies.` ► Demanded Russia get invited back into G7 `► Pushed the CIA to [give American intelligence to the Kremlin.](https://www.justsecurity.org/71279/trump-pushed-cia-to-give-intelligence-to-kremlin-while-taking-no-action-against-russia-arming-taliban/)` ► Withdrew from the Open Skies treaty `► Received intelligence in 2019 that Russia was paying bounties for dead American soldiers, and hasn't done anything about it by the time of this writing.` ► Announced troop withdrawal from Germany (America's missile defense from Russia and forward operating base against Russian aggression) ` ► And of course, Trump continues to threaten to pull out of NATO, a move so catastrophically stupid, so inconceivably cosmically myopic, I truly can't express the profundity of the idiocy. Suffice to say, pulling out of NATO would be like the only guy in a prison yard with a shotgun just throwing it over the fence for absolutely no reason, suddenly giving the people with crude homemade shivs complete power.`

The girl accusing Waffle of this shit had already admitted to cheating on her boyfriend during the convention 6 years ago, 100s of eye witnesses saw her kissing multiple guys and even giving hand jobs to every speed runner in the scene. `Her husband ditched her at the convention and she wanted pay back. Now she wants to stream again, her husband advises against it so she jumps on the MeToo train to save her Mormon life and keep her marriage intact.` Just because you do something you regret doesnt give you the right to call it rape. `She claims she was blackout drunk but somehow recalls ever detail of what happened crystal clear. **Red Flag.**` She claims she has been silenced but the real truth came out 6 years ago and was buried because multiple people refuted her claims. **Red Flag.** `She is a Mormon and married when she was just 18 years old, her husband has talked to the person she cheated with multiple times and he claimed they were in love and he shouldnt have engaged in the CONSENSUAL ACT at the time. **Red Flag.**` She expresses her desire to stream again but knows she wouldnt be accepted in the community because of her actions and what she said 6 years ago. **Red Flag.** `A girl approached her about her behavior during the event calling her a slut/whore which made her cry, the girl then left the group of super speed run nerds and was in full control of her own judgement yet our accuser was somehow voodoo tricked into hanging out with a pack of Mario Nerds. **Red Flag.**` Im sorry, all the other cases that have been made about content creators have REAL stories behind them, they have real victims and have been dealt with accordingly. **Red Flag.** `I have no horse in this race, I dont like or dislike Waffle, but I wont see someone falsely accused for something that was already buried years ago, this person obviously has mental problems and is seeking to further herself by jumping on the bandwagon.` If you dislike Waffle thats fine, but dont jump to conclusions about something that is so obviously contrived. `Edit: looks like the battle is already partly lost. These allegations have lead loaded.gg to cover their ass, Waffle has been removed from their roster.` Edit2: Thanks for silver, at least someone can sees through the bias.

So. `I game. My husband games. We are both avid gamers - him moreso than I - and he lives and breathes his computer. When I read this post out loud and he heard the amount that your (hopefully ex) fiancé blew on his computer, he asked “Does the computer suck his dick while he games? Does he shit into the chair and it power the computer for him? Even as a hardcore computer gaming enthusiast, I would be hard pressed and have to make a considerable effort to spend even HALF of what he did. I don’t know how that’s physically possible even with top-of-the-line hardware. He either grossly overpaid, or he’s telling her that’s what was spent on the computer, but he’s lying and blew it elsewhere because of the amount of unnecessary shit that he had to buy in order to get to that number in the first place. That’s fucking insanity.”` It’s been 15 minutes and he’s still ranting about how unbelievable that amount is to spend on a computer. `If I were you, and my fiancé pulled that stunt, I would tell him to marry the computer since he’s so dedicated to it that it requires all his time and our joint wedding fund.` I’m just going to leave it at that.

Christian McCaffrey's 2019 season will be talked about with some of the greatest dual threat RB seasons in history. He went for over 1000 yards in both receiving and rushing adding up to a total of 2392 yards and 19 touchdowns. This has only been done twice before in Marshall Faulk's 1999 and Roger Craig's 1985. No one in history has done this two separate times in history, so next year CMC has a real shot at being the first. He also did this while being in the top 10 for yards per attempt at 4.8 and not to mention that he performed this with one of the worst QBs in the league for a majority of the season in Kyle Allen. Teams were able to focus on CMC and he would still beat them. He accounted for 43.7% of Carolina's offense this year for Carolina. He was durable, dependable, handsome, and fun to watch this year.
So what does Christian McCaffrey do so well that lead to him running for 1300+ yards on nearly 5 yards per carry despite playing with dogshit at quarterback? Well it starts with his mind and processing. He presses the hole very well and rarely will miss the correct gap. His vision and mind do half of the battle for him so he isn't running into clogged areas and when he presses he opens up the best hole even more. Let's look at one of his most exciting plays of the season as our first example. On this play at the mesh point (when the qb is handing the ball to the RB) you can see that there is no cutback and that his OL isn't getting any push to create a hole up the middle. That means it's time to bounce this play to the outside. The EDGE actually plays it pretty well, but CMC tells him to talk to the hand and shoves him to the ground. Then he is able to speed past the LB trying to reach him. There's just one guy left and CMC finishes this in style by jumping right overtop of him for a TD. On the second destruction of Jacksonville CMC can see that one LB is trying to cheat outside on this outside zone, so CMC can't bounce again like he did in the first clip. The other LB completely falls for the motion end around and splits that way which leaves the middle wide open. McCaffrey sees this and cuts that way and then uses his speed to get past everyone and keep his lead for 84 yards and the touchdown. Here is a fantastic example of his ability to press the hole and make micromovements to cause defenders to react. This is a counter play with a pulling guard and a fullback taking him past the second level and if everything is set up it will work beautifully, but the blocks have to work. The guard kicks out the end perfectly opening up that hole and then to make sure he gets the seal where he wants to go he just hesitates and looks towards the A gap just a little bit. This freezes 58 and makes that hole even bigger for him to run through and helps his OL. This time he presses outside before working in which helps him turn a small gain into a first down. This time you can see him cutback with great success because Green Bay blows up the playside. He turns the sift block from the TE into a lead block and follows him for a big gain. He gets a weird look on this outside zone, but is able to quickly adapt for a nice gain with Cam Jordan coming over as part of a T-E stunt CMC has to read it in real time, but he does so well and gets a nice gain. On this last example CMC reads the LBs and sees that Bobby Wagner overcommits to the outside zone just a little bit, so he presses him for half a second allowing the combo block to get some movement and letting the block be set up on the second level before cutting back. This ability turned a loss or gain of nothing into a very big gain and a first down.
Another reason he was so good last year is his ability to make people miss. This example shows his vision, pressing the hole, and elusiveness where everything falls apart, but he is able to turn a bad play into a good play by reading the defense and then making a guy miss. This play shouldn't have gone anywhere, but instead of being a loss because multiple guys failed their blocks he just makes them miss. He throws a nasty juke on the safety before putting on the jets and scoring a TD. Here he shows off his vision and ability to press the hole before wrecking another safety with a juke. Another play another juke on a safety making them go the wrong way. Another play which shows off his fantastic ability to turn a bad play into a great play this time by making a few guys miss in the hole. Blake Martinez gets the shake and lets CMC pick up an extra 7 yards. On this one Vonn Bell gets shook for a TD which makes Tony laugh a little bit. However he is not only elusive on run plays, but also pass plays where he quickly can secure a pass and then turn upfield and make defenders miss. On this little dump off he turns upfield and then gives 28 a quick case of polio giving him no use of his legs as he scores a TD. Here he outruns the pursuit angle making a guy miss after catching a quick swing pass. Here is the same swing pass against the Washington team turning a little gain into a big gainer. CMC is the last person I want to face in the open field 1 on 1.
While Carolina seemed to mostly use him as a dump off or swing pass guy he actually runs very nice routes and anytime you have a RB that can beat a cornerback on a route you have something special. This is a nice Texas route out of the backfield he opens up outside before quickly cutting back inside for a catch and a nice gain. He splits out wide here and runs a quick drag then makes a few guys miss for a large gain. He can change from a swing to a wheel to gain 20+ yards. From the slot he will beat you this time with an in route. He gets singled up vs a LB and beats him with a Texas route for a huge gain. He also can go the opposite way and beat the LB on the out route. Here he runs a whip route where he fakes the slant inside and then cuts back outside for a big gain and a first down. He almost has the ability of a WR to find the soft spot and make the catch. You can see on all of these clips that he's a very natural cathcer of the ball. He catches with his hands first and then brings it into his body. He doesn't use his body to catch the ball like a lot of runningbacks. Here is a good example of him using his hands to bring in a pass the pass is a little off (what else is new from Kyle Allen) so he has to jump and catch it with his hands. If he wasn't so great at catching the ball than he might have dropped this. On this crucial 4th down the Panthers go to CMC's hands and he delivers with a nice TD. This play he chips the EDGE and then is able to improv his way open after the play breaks down he makes a fantastic catch here for the first down.
This play deserves it's own paragraph and basically shows everything I've talked about from a receiving aspect for CMC. This route is called a juke route that the Patriot's have run for years with Edelman. This article will basically show you everything you need to know about it and if you want more Bill O'Brien did an entire clinic on this play. So here the receiver (CMC) has three options. He can sit if the LB plays him off and gives that up, he can return if the LB plays inside too much, or he can juke and run across if the LB tries to play him tight. McCaffrey hits the LB with the juke route and runs this requires great route running, hands, and elusiveness. He runs it perfect like he will sit on the route which makes the LB covering him come up just a little. CMC then hits him with his elusiveness and jukes to the outside leaving the LB in the dust as he speeds into the endzone for a TD. The Panthers should run this play with CMC more often because not only can he run the route well, but he can make people miss after the fact as well.
Next year and beyond I think there is even more room for CMC to shine. We saw in those clips that he was amazing, but could you imagine him with a real QB that makes the defense play a little bit off and not commit so much to the run? His OL in the clips wasn't amazing either. If he got a better OL he could manage better efficiency and if he stays healthy more volume. Not only would adding these thing help, but I would love to see more plays with CMC running real routes. It felt like a lot of the time the Panthers left him as just a safety valve when he could be so much more. It's possible that they have addressed all of this in the offseason. They added a LT (at the expense of another OL), they added a QB, and they have a new HC and innovative OC that just came off using another very good receiving RB well. I'm excited to see if CMC can come back stronger than ever and improve upon his last season with even more greatness.

Written By: O_the_Scientist
Acquired in a splashy free agent deal in 2017, Stephon Gilmore caused significant controversy among the Patriot fanbase from multiple angles. He had proven to be a good corner in his time in Buffalo, but his deal was expensive, leaving many wondering if there would be funds to pay Super Bowl hero Malcolm Butler and what exactly Gilmore had done to deserve a top 5 positional contract. Over the first few weeks of 2017 that controversy stewed, as the defense allowed historically bad passing production as Gilmore appeared lost at times. Since the mid-point of 2017, however, Gilmore has been the league’s best cornerback, producing the special combination of deafening silence and highlight reel moments you only get from an elite lockdown corner. In 2019 the Gilly Lock became the first defensive back since Troy Polamalu to win the Associated Press’s Defensive Player of the Year Award. We’re going to take a look at the polished technique and savvy game sense Gilmore exhibits week in and week out that made him the best Cornerback in the NFL and one of the best overall players of 2019.
Stephon Gilmore in 2019
From a technical standpoint Gilmore is a master craftsman. His trade has been refined from the fundamental base through the finest detail. We’re going to take a look at the anatomy of an elite cornerback from the ground up, and the foundation is footwork. When you watch Gilmore run with opposing receivers, you see quick, clean, deliberate steps that both set up the following motions and maintain his balance, and each of those three factors is key. For a start lets look at this PBU against a Darius Slayton curl route. Off the snap Gilmore takes a minuscule jab step forward with his outside foot, creating a leverage point for his next steps that will allow him to follow any break. If the receiver breaks in on a quick slant or a drag his hips are now open toward the middle of the field and he can pursue that angle, driving inside off of that plant foot, and when the receiver breaks outside he can drive backwards from that plant foot to follow. On this rep, Gilmore takes a couple chop steps as the receiver makes his break so as to not over-commit and expose himself to a cross-up in-cut or deep slant, and only when Slayton hits the point of no return on his break does Gilmore flip his hips to run with him. At the top of the route he uses a T-step technique to drive on the ball, disrupting with his hands and creating 4th and 8. Contrast with this PBU on an in route against Cincinnati’s Alex Erickson. This is patience, situational awareness and an exhibition of why deliberate steps are key. Playing off the receiver, Gilmore is happy to let this play come to him in a red zone situation. Gilmore waits on-balance for Erickson to make his break, drops the outside foot and shuffles slightly when the receiver fakes that way, then uses that shuffle positioning to drive and beat the receiver to his spot. Every down, every rep, every one of his league-leading 20 PBUs starts right there in the feet. You'll see this on every following .gif if you look for it.
After the feet, movement flows through the hips. Stephon Gilmore’s hips don’t lie are fluid and disciplined, allowing him to stick with even the shiftiest receivers through their routes. The technique here - in theory - is so simple that it’s one of the first instructions you’ll get playing pee wee or high school ball - you can’t go anywhere without your hips, you can move in the direction they’re pointing faster than you can go anywhere else and if you have to flip them you’d better be damn sure about it. To see active hips, we can look at this rep against Tyler Boyd. Gilmore is in a softer press and Boyd manages a clean release, crossing his face with a large step outside before breaking back in. Gilmore’s initial drop step outside allows him to follow the outside release if committed, but his hips never rotate past ~45 degrees before he crosses back over to the inside following Boyd. At the top of the route Gilmore’s hips follow the receiver ever so slightly as he fakes an outside break then he closes to the inside of the field with the receiver’s in-cut, allowing Gilmore to break up the pass and in this case, pick it off. On the less-active, more-disciplined end of the spectrum, here he is against John Brown, opening up immediately to the outside against a very fast opponent, showing discipline not to over commit with steady hips as Brown fakes a look inside, then turning fully with the receiver. This technique is crucial to Gilmore’s ability to cover any kind of receiver on any kind of route.
The great footwork and fluid hips put Gilmore in position to use his hands, which he does exceptionally well both during the route and at the catch point. There's an art to getting handsy through a receiver's route both with bump n' run near the line and leverage at the breaks while balancing the knife edge between physical play and a penalty. Gilmore is also constantly fighting through the catch point. There’s a tenacity with which he outright attacks balls even if a receiver gets his hands on one. He attacks by punching to and through the ball and hands in any contested situation - seen with this PBU against Sammy Watkins - and he high points the ball like a receiver to either swat it or tip it up - seen here setting up a Devin McCourty INT. This comes after the hard part, but it’s the kind of fine finishing touch that transforms a great coverage player into a disruptive playmaking defensive back.
Stephon Gilmore is so practiced and effective with the physical process of playing coverage that he’d be a very good corner if he was only ever asked to man up and follow whoever, but what propels him to that next level is a blend of instinct, preparation and sheer brilliance. There’s just no substitute for study, knowledge and game sense if you want to be an elite cornerback. Look for the physical details I've described employed to their fullest effect in these quick hits that highlight why Gilmore is the premiere playmaking cornerback in the NFL right now. He knows what routes to jump against which receivers. He knows when to play off-coverage to invite a throw. He feels the right time to peel off his receiver and play the ball. On this Pick-six vs Miami he hits the top of his dropback an drives right in front of the outlet receiver, reading the QB rollout. On this Int vs NYG he bumps his man at the line before passing him off on the interior cut and dropping underneath the corner route from the TE. On a decisive PBU against the Giants with excellent coverage form and a laser-precise finishing punch. Undercuts on this ball tipped for an INT. Reads the receiver's eyes to time the high point. These are the highlights we see, but most of his year was spent smothering receivers so badly Quarterbacks refuse to try him, or sticking with an elite receiver for 4 seconds to not allow a QB outlet.
There's really only one way for a corner to produce a league-leading number of passes defensed and an allowed passer rating under 50. It's about the intelligent and selective application of a full, premium quality tool kit in the hands of an absolute master. That's what makes Stephon Gilmore special. He's so good the Patriots modeled their entire approach in the secondary off of his presence on the outside. The team played cover-1 and cover-0 - two defensive schemes that place a massive, high risk burden on outside man coverage players - more than any other team in the league because Gilmore could be trusted to lock down his assignment without help on every single coverage snap (except one, you're welcome Bills fans). I highly recommend his excellent Film Session to get a glimpse into how he prepares and what he sees and how his abilities dictate New England's approach in the secondary.
Legacy
Before Stephon Gilmore came to New England in 2017 he had entered the league as a competent starter and had grown into a pro bowl CB1 over a handful of seasons. He wasn’t someone mentioned in the same tier of Richard Sherman, Patrick Peterson, Aqib Talib or Darrelle Revis. Since the mid-point of the 2017 season, however, he’s been the best corner in the NFL, punctuating his Patriot seasons with a game-clinching PBU in the AFC Championship Game, a game-clinching Interception in the Super Bowl, two First Team All Pro selections and an Associated Press Defensive Player of the Year award. The full list of cornerbacks who have won that award is now Mel Blount, Lester Hayes, Rod Woodson, Deion Sanders, Charles Woodson, Stephon Gilmore. Four of those Six are in the hall of fame and Woodson is considered a strong candidate for first-ballot induction when eligible in 2021. Only 24 cornerbacks since the merger have been named 1st team all pro 2 or more times, and 12 of them are in the Hall of Fame or are what I consider guarantees (Patslegend Darrelle Revis, Charles Woodson). I don’t believe his career to date has made a compelling Hall of Fame case, but his 2019 season is the kind of monumental step a player can take late in his career to make Canton a realistic goal.

Introduction
What could possible be said about Aaron Donald that hasn't been said before?
The man is on a rare path, the path to be deemed the greatest ever defensive player. Don't misread my words, Donald isn't the GOAT yet and there surely are a handful of active players who have done more in their careers. But he's maybe the only active player that has done enough in his career to stay on that pace. JJ Watt was another candidate but injuries slowed down his pace, and unless he has some elite years in the next few he probably won't be able to make up the ground. In 2020, Aaron Donald will be entering his 7th season in the NFL at the age of 29, and still realistically has three more years of peak level prime with another five to seven years of elite play remaining. The man earned his 5th consecutive AP 1st Team All Pro and 6th consecutive Pro Bowl selection in 2019, and even in his statistically worst year since 2016 still managed to get one DPOY vote. Part of what makes Aaron unique in his combination of strength and speed, all while staying small relative to the average DT. Because he sits lower to the ground, his center of gravity gives him superior leverage on most all opponents he will face.
He has a strong argument as the greatest modern defensive tackle of all time already, the only other player who may steal that from him would be Warren Sapp; but Donald already has more tackles for loss in his six seasons than Sapp AND has a higher pressure rate. This time next year, with another batch of awards, we could be talking about Donald as the greatest defensive tackle ever. Don't want to take the word of a redditor who left the GOAT QB off the Top 100 list two years in a row? Take a listen to Brian Baldinger's breakdown, and become baptized in the shock and awe of the greatest Donald this country has ever known.
Aaron Donald is the perfect example of what fruits the labor of hard work can bear. For those unfamiliar, Donald has kept his humble roots by continuing to workout in the gym of his childhood home. He's explained that he discovered how strong and fast he could become in high school, and became addicted to seeing the changes in his body and how they resulted in superhuman power. What seems like such a slam dunk now, in retrospect wasnt considered as much in the 2014 NFL Draft. Many scouting reports had his size as a weakness, with many speculating whether his small frame would be able to hold up at the NFL level. Even during his rookie season he wasn't given the opportunity to compete for the starting job until week 6 (thanks Jeff Fisher). He's managed to overcome essentially every professional obstacle in his way, which gives me conviction in my, obviously homered belief, that by the time Aaron Donald retires he will be end up as the greatest defensive player in NFL history.
2019 - A Season In Review
While he didn't accumulate the sack totals he had in 2018, Donald still led all DTs with 12.5 which was good for 7th in the league. He also led all DTs in total pressures with 80, tied for 5th in the league. He did all this despite being double teamed on over 60% of his pass rushing snaps, sometimes being triple teamed and the occasional quadruple team. The amount of attention Donald requires truly is unprecedented, but honestly is required for any offensive game plan that hopes to have success.
He has a wide arsenal of pass rush techniques that he's able to use to perfection; he's able to leverage himself well enough to use the swim move with devastating precision. He can spin quick enough to completely lose any guard or center trying to keep him pinned. Perhaps most impressive is his jump chop as illustrated brilliantly by u/craigroh. His strength, despite being considered undersized, is unrivaled as shown in his bull rush. Truthfully his greatest strength is the variety of his arsenal and the way he can piece together multiple techniques. Because of this he's able to keep his opponents and opposing DCs constantly guessing.
In the run game, Donald is able to completely disrupt running backs behind the line of scrimmage, and regardless of whether that results in a TFL or not, it changes the play and causes chaos. He isn't really an elite run stopper, but he doesn't need to be in order to be disruptive. He's most effective in altering the path of RBs by blowing up holes and causing the interior of the offensive line to move outside where they want to be. In this play, Donald is so quick to penetrate the LOS that it forces Kamara to try and find a different hole, which results in a TFL on a critical 4th down.
In actuality, this may be the lone weakness to Aaron Donald's game. He occasionally gets baited into using his speed against him, effectively taking him completely out of the play. Sometimes he can recover, but OCs have begun to notice this trend and have been adjusting by running the ball directly at Aaron banking on him shooting off immediately after the snap. Essentially this boils down to a guess on Donald's part, but it's still a part of his game that he could improve on.
2020 and Beyond
If Aaron Donald is to become the GOAT, he will need another big year in 2020 and beyond. Under Wade Phillips, Aaron wasn't really given any help in terms of scheme to get his pressures and sacks. Wade was notorious for relying on 4 to generate pressure, and running a 3-4 defense with a 4-3 DT can prove challenging. For 2020 the Rams hired Brandon Staley, former Denver Broncos OLB coach, who could be the McVay-like spark the defense needs. I expect more exotic blitz packages to open things up for Donald so he isn't constantly facing two or more linemen, and in turn I'd expect a return to MVP-like form. My prediction for Aaron Donald in 2020 is as follows; 19.5 sacks on 95 pressures with 4 FFs and 1 INT. As a bonus, Look for Donald to be included on some goal line packages. My man has been lobbying McVay since last year and the coach is the exact type of person to experiment with odd personnel groupings.

As a 2nd round pick in 2016, no one expected the prolific production Michael Thomas would output over his first 4 years in the league. He started with an immediate impact in his first year, quickly displacing Brandin Cooks as the team's number one receiver on route to setting the franchise rookie records for receptions, yards and touchdowns.
He wasn't done there, he then established himself as a very tough cover going in his sophomore season. He grinded out 104 catches and 1200 yards making his 196 catches through his first 2 seasons a new NFL record.. He earned his first of three straight Pro Bowl appearances this year.
At this point, I think the league and fans were unsure of how to feel about Mike. He was on most Top 10 lists at the position but rarely was cracking any top 5 lists or being talked about as a dominant gamechanger.
Everything changed when the fire nation attacked He cashed in a smooth 125 rec/1405/9 TD in 2018. He led the league in receptions and was 6th in yards. He was proving he was a master route runner with outstanding body control and catch radius. He became the fastest player to 300 career receptions ever at the end of the 2018 season. However, interacting with other fans on reddit there still seemed to be an air of doubt on him being in the same tier as Julio and DeAndrew Hopkins and his game would always be just below their level.
Enter 2019, the year of Can't Guard Mike. In one of the most consistent seasons I've ever personally seen, Mike shredded opposing defenses catching 10+ passes nine times. He set a NFL reception mark at 149 receptions and was awarded the NFL OPOTY, becoming the first receiver since Jerry fucking Rice in 1993 to win the award. He now has the most receptions by any player through his 2nd, 3rd and 4th seasons while being the fastest ever to record 400 career receptions.
But that's not what makes Mike great. His biggest detractors say all he does is catch slants and outs. Yes he catches a ton of them but if that's "all he does'' you'd think a professional defense would be able to stop him. They don't. If you actually watch Mike play you will see one of the strongest WRs in the league. He shakes off contact like a running back and consistently slithers through arm tackles for extra Yardage. He is excellent at head and hand discipline, where he wont move either til absolutely necessary making catches like this look routine. He is one of the best route runners in the game, here he shakes the corner off at the top of his route then uses that snake like strength to push through contact and get the TD. Which he does again later in the same game. His concentration was amazing to watch all year and he was consistently coming up with catches that required perfect placement and he didn't flinch from them.
He will never be a burner but he can be a threat at any level of the field, no matter which QB is throwing to him..
His appearance in the top 10 is absolutely deserved this year and anyone who doesn't have him in the top 10 players overall going into whatever weird Frankenstein covid season we have in 2020 isn't paying attention. He will be put to rest any argument and be the best WR in the game by the end of the 2020 season.

Introduction
You've made it, the top of the list, the crème de la crème. Lamar Motherfuckin' Jackson. It's difficult to put into words what exactly makes Lamar Jackson special. Some of the words I've used to describe him include: "Holy Fuck" "What the Hell" "You've got to be shitting me" Basically, it's the return of the "Ah, wait, no way, you're kidding. He didn't just do what I think he did, did he?" The likes of which we haven't seen since the Michael Vick days in Madden 04 but if we turned him up to about 17. Coming into the season Lamar had the weight of the Ravens franchise on his shoulders and constant pressure from critics who didn't believe he could cut it as a quarterback. Well, the jokes were on them because he spent literally all of 2019 cutting it up and down the field.
And whether he was tormenting opposing teams on the field, or just torturing me in my own personal dreamscape, it truly felt like Lamar Jackson was everywhere last season. And perhaps he was? No. That must have been a dream. Virtual Reality Lamar Jackson can't hurt you. But he still possessed the uncanny ability to feed a grown man into the dirt and had an unnerving knack for inserting IV drips directly into the lives of opposing linemen. And it is because of this that Jackson has become a man to be feared among NFL circles. And it was that same sheer force of will that engineered Jackson's brilliant 2019 season.
2019
Lamar Jackson's 2019 season was nothing short of marvelous, spectacular, terrific... Lamarkable. Okay, you can blame Ian Eagle for that one. But in just his second season in the league, and first full season starting, Jackson tore down the NFL team by team with an offense completely designed around his unique skillset. And he didn't just tear them down, he ground them to the bone with a deadly combination of inhuman athleticism and spectacular change of direction. But then it hits you. He can throw the ball too... I mean, he can really zip that thing.
The stats speak for themselves. He led all quarterbacks in broken tackles with 42. The next closest was Josh Allen with... 20. He led the league in passing touchdowns and total touchdowns with 36 and 43 respectively and he didn't just break Michael Vick's rushing record, he shattered it. With a mind-boggling 1206 rushing yards, Lamar Jackson ran his way into the top 6 amongst running backs. But actually watching the plays? Well, there truly are no words. Just how exactly are you expected to stop a play like this? How do you even wrap your head around this throw? Of course, it was efforts like these that were enough to earn him MVP honors and solidify this season amongst some of the all-time greats, but it's not just his stats and plays that made him the best player in the NFL in 2019.
Because the true measure of the greatness of a player is how great he can make those around him. And Lamar Jackson was able to lead the league in passing touchdowns with, checks notes Antonio Brown's cousin as his WR1? His ability to move around the pocket and the sheer threat of him gashing opposing defenses on the ground created extremely favorable matchups along the offensive line and the threat of the read-option allowed the Ravens backfield to set the all-time record for rushing yards with three players averaging at least 5 yards a carry. A record that had previously stood for 41 years. So you can argue that he had great running backs around him and a great offensive line too, but I don't believe that takes away from the greatness of Lamar Jackson. It enhances it.
Legacy
Lamar could certainly never touch a football again and still be remembered for what he accomplished this season. An MVP in just his second year and first full season starting, combined with a rushing record that, let's face it, will never be broken, thrust Jackson into a category of players that consist of sheer greatness. Only time will tell if his play will continue, but with the type of upward trajectory and growth he's displayed already, I'm not even sure he is bound by limits of reality. The only thing that can stop Lamar at this point is this fucking thing.
As for Lamar's 2019 season itself? It will certainly go down in the history books. But I believe we'll also look back at this season as a significant turning point in the NFL. You don't have to fit your quarterback into a mold, you can mold your team around a quarterback. The NFL's a' changing and Lamar Jackson is at the forefront of that change. As for the future of Lamar Jackson, well, that's a frightening thought. The sheer improvement as a passer from year one to year two is unprecedented, and the thought of him getting even wiser and refining his game to another level is legitimately terrifying. And that's all before you realize he's younger than Joe Burrow... Fuck. All I know is that if Lamar Jackson plays next season even a little bit like he played this season, his legacy is going to include about 500 million more dollars.

Check out my Phase 1 rewrite before starting Phase 2.
PHASE 1 - ORIGINS
Phase 1 establishes the origin stories of the founding 6 members of the Justice League and sets the foundation for the cinematic universe of the DCU.
https://www.reddit.com/DCcomics/comments/hhjklp/filmtv_rewriting_the_dceu_detailed_plots_for_46/
1944 - Wonder Woman: Paradise Lost
2024 - Aquaman: Throne of Atlantis
2024 - Batman: Year One
2027 - Superman: Last Son
2027 - Green Lantern: Emerald Dawn
2027 - Flash: Ignition

PHASE 2 - EXPANSION
Phase 2 shows the founding 6 as now experienced heroes tackling greater threats while organically introducing more heroes and creating more branching plotlines for the cinematic universe.

2029 - Superman II: Man of Steel
Protagonist – Kal-El/Clark Kent (Superman) (25), Kara Zor-El/Kara Kent (Supergirl) (16)
Antagonist – General Zod, Faora-Ul
Important Characters – Jonathan Kent, Martha Kent, Lois Lane, Lex Luthor
Background – Kryptonians had a caste system, meaning they were genetically cloned and modified to perform certain functions in society. Kara was “born” in the military officer caste like her father, General Zor-El. General Zod was essentially an uncle to her; he was her father Zor-El’s lieutenant before becoming a general and she would have served as his lieutenant in turn. When Jor-El learned of Krypton’s imminent destruction he told his older brother Zor-El, who was able to send Kara to Earth before Krypton's destruction. However, being a scientist Jor-El had modified his spacecraft so it was faster than the standard models, which is why even though Kara and Kal left for earth at around the same time it took Kara 25 extra years. Right before Krypton's destruction, Zod led a failed coup to overthrow the Kryptonian council and was sentenced to eternity in the Phantom Zone. Present day, Clark is now comfortable and experienced as Superman and is dating Lois.
Plot – When Clark brings Lois to Kansas for the holidays to introduce her to his parents, Kara’s spacecraft crashes nearby and Clark bonds with his newest family member while teaching her to use her powers. She shows him that the crystal necklace he wears is actually a rare alpha codex crystal and she shows him how to activate it in Antarctica, which creates the Fortress of Solitude. The Fortress contains all of Jor-El’s projects, including a Phantom Zone projector and Phantom Drive, which Kara works on over the next couple months to try to locate other Phantom Drives in the hope of finding Kryptonian survivors. She accidentally frees Zod, who lies to her saying he brought some people into the Phantom Zone before Krypton's demise in the hopes they would be rescued someday. Delighted, Kara goes to find Kal to introduce them to each other, and while she is away Zod frees his current lieutenant Faora. When Kal and Kara return, Zod states his true intentions to build a new Krypton on earth, and Kara must choose between her old planet, her cultural caste, and her “uncle” against her new home, her newfound autonomy to choose her path, and her cousin. She sides with Clark and earth and the two of them manage to send Faora back to the Phantom Zone, but the projector is damaged immediately after by Zod, who is manic at the thought of spending another 100 years there. Kara is forced to break Zod’s neck to save Clark, upon which Clark teaches her the importance of restraint.
Sequel tie-in – While in the Phantom Zone, Faora is caught and killed by a monster heavily implied to be Doomsday.
Lore - Krypton is 100 million light years away from Earth, and Kryptonian tech allows for 1 million times faster than the speed of light travel by harnessing the energy of the Phantom Zone as a power source. Kara and Kal both left Krypton in 1929, and it took Kara 100 years to get to Earth and she was in suspended animation during that time. Kal's spacecraft was able to get there in only 75, because it "skipped" in between the Phantom Zone and our reality, similar to how a rock skips on water. Also, while Kara was sleeping, the spacecrafts computer calculated what year she would arrive on earth and used a logarithmic function to predict what human society would be like in 2029 and downloaded it directly into her brain. So when she gets to Earth she can speak English (and two dozen other languages) and has some familiarity with earth technology. It's only 98% accurate, and there are some things she is surprised by and some things she is surprised don't exist, like flying cars.
Easter Egg - At one point in the movie, Lois laments that her story is a dud and even after two years no one has any information on the two arrow guys' origins, just that they seem to take down criminals without anyone getting a good look at them.
Author's Note - Just realizing that if Krypton was 100 million light years away, Jor-El would have thought he was sending Kal to a world filled with dinosaurs. I watch too much Cinemasins.
Author's Note 2 - An important part of Kara's development through the movie is her struggle between earth and Kryptonian values. As stated earlier, Kara was born in the officer caste and her whole life has been her preparation to lead soldiers. That's why she's initially so obsessed with finding other Kryptonian survivors; she sees it as her purpose for existing to be a leader for her people. But as she spends more time with Kal, the Kents, and earth, she is exposed to 'Murican values of freedom of choice and autonomy, which are completely foreign concepts to her. We see her gradually start to question Kryptonian caste and society and shift toward the idea of choosing for herself. It makes her decision to side with Kal so much more poignant in the end, because it represents her choosing what she wants as an individual, instead of going along with that Krypton would expect her to do.
2030 - Green Lantern II: Blackest Night
Protagonist – Hal Jordan (Green Lantern) (29)
Antagonist – Sinestro, Yellow Lantern Corps
Important Characters – Carol Ferris, Kilawog, Tomar-Re, and Katma Tui.
Background - One of the principle rules of the Green Lantern Corps was they do not kill sentient organic beings except in the most extreme circumstances, either turning them over to the appropriate local planetary authority or jailing the most dangerous individuals on their prison planet. Sinestro always doubted the wisdom of that rule, but he followed it anyway as he considered the Guardians virtually omniscient and infallible. However, the events with the Manhunters showed him the Guardians are very fallible and he totally rejects the no kill rule. Unbeknownst to the Guardians, Sinestro has been building a cult of personality among the new lanterns and spreading his ideology under the premise it will bring more order and stability. He is secretly preparing to launch his insurrection and meanwhile he and his followers have already begun killing criminals discreetly.
Plot – Hal, Kilawog, and Tomar-Re go to Sinestro’s home planet unannounced and happen to see him killing a criminal. Though shocked, the three of them manage to overpower him and take him into custody. They bring him to Oa to stand trial for breaking the most important tenet of Green Lanterns. He is found guilty and before being sentenced to the prison planet he is bombarded with yellow light to remove all vestiges of his green lantern ring’s power. This is standard procedure to strip rogue lanterns of their ring's power. But what they do not know is that he possesses a yellow ring and the yellow light overcharged it, making him many times stronger than a normal lantern. Though the timing is not ideal, he calls his yellow lantern followers to rise up and overthrow the green lanterns. The civil war ravages the planet and the Green Lanterns are significantly diminished. In the end, Sinestro calls on his followers to give him all of their yellow ring energy so he can put an end to the war, but the Green Lanterns give Hal all of their energy as well. In the end, Hal's conviction is able to overcome Sinestro and the Green Lanterns win with Sinestro being sent to prison. But during the conflict Tomar-Re died, Katma Tui lost her right leg, and Kilawog lost an eye. When Hal returns to Earth, he proposes to Carol.
Sequel tie-in – While destroying Yellow Lantern Rings with antimatter blasts, to the green lanterns confusion the rings glow red and sapphire before being destroyed.
Author's Note - In the very beginning of the movie, we see Hal loves Carol but is not ready to approach the subject of marriage because he has the mindset that there's no rush because there's always tomorrow. The civil war and the deaths show him that tomorrow is never guaranteed, which prompts him to stop putting it off and pop the question.
2030 - Wonder Woman II: Paradise Lost
Protagonist – Diana Prince (Wonder Woman) (26)
Antagonist – Dr. Barbara Ann Minerva (Cheetah), Circe
Background – Before Zeus and the Old Gods of Olympus, earth was ruled by the Titans, the previous generation of Old Gods led by Chronos. Chronos was the Lord of Time and Zeus, his son, killed and overthrew him. Zeus hid Chronos' scythe in Tartaros because the powerful weapon contained so much chronal energy that it could turn a human into a demigod, or make a lesser god as powerful as an Olympian. In the present day, Diana is still living in Paris and while she has mostly gotten over Steve's death, she lives quietly by herself. She misses her family and is searching for purpose in her life.
Plot – Circe tricks Dr. Barbara Ann Minerva, an archaeologist searching for Minoan artifacts in Crete, into entering a portal to Tartaros and touching the scythe, which transforms her into Cheetah. Her newfound Titan power allows her to freely control her own time, allowing her to move super fast, as well as granting her three “charges” that she can use to manipulate someone or something else's time, such as aging a person a million years in a matter of seconds or freezing a person in time for years. Circe uses her magic to enslave Cheetah and the two of them travel from Crete to Istanbul, where the entrance to Are's prison in Tartaros is. It takes all of Circe's magic to keep Cheetah under her control, and thus they have to use human transportation to reach their destination instead of Circe just teleporting them. Diana, who sensed the surge of Titan energy released when Barbara became Cheetah, chases them from Crete across Europe to Istanbul. However, Cheetah and Circe get to Ares before Diana can stop them. Cheetah uses her first “charge” to age Ares’ restraints by a million years, allowing him to free himself. Ares easily incapacitates an exhausted Diana but lets her live so she can be a witness to the realization of his plans before he teleports himself, Circe, and Cheetah away. Diana’s anger at her failure coupled with a timely Superman interview she happens to see on TV inspires her to find her calling and protect Earth from whatever Ares has planned next.
Sequel tie-in – Ares, Circe, and Cheetah ambush Zeus and Cheetah uses her second charge to freeze Zeus, and Ares says that by the time it wears off Olympus will have fallen.
Note – Cheetah’s origin stories and powers always bothered me; one because it seemed boring and lazy, and two because there’s no way she should be strong enough to be Diana’s nemesis. In this rewrite, her powers are time based and divine in nature to fit the storyline better and make her a stronger opponent.
Author's Note - I don't know if this will age well or not, because I wrote this before WW84 was announced.
2031 - Teen Titans: Independence Day
Protagonist – Dick Grayson (Robin) (16) [leader], Wally West (Kid Flash) (14), Koriand’Kory Anders (Starfire) (17), Victor Stone (Cyborg) (18), Roy Harper (Speedy) (17)
Antagonist – Komand’r (Blackfire) (19)
Important Characters – Kal-El/Clark Kent (Superman) (27), Kara Zor-El/Kara Kent (Supergirl) (18)
Background – Dick Grayson, frustrated by Batman’s stringent rules, lack of positive reinforcement, and singular focus on the mission, left him in early 2029. Wally West is now the avatar of the Negative Speed Force after recreating the lab accident that gave Barry his powers but fights crime in faraway cities from Barry’s watch, as Barry does not want his godbrother to become a crimefighter. Victor Stone ran away from home in 2030 after his scientist father turned him into a cyborg to save his life. Roy Harper was adopted by Oliver Queen from a Navajo reservation in 2026 and the next year became Speedy as the sidekick to Green Arrow. Koriand’r was a warrior prodigy who saved her people from enslavement by the Citadelians as a 13 year old after her parents’ deaths in 2027. Some of her people wanted to crown her queen despite her not wanting the throne, and that faction clashed with the traditionalists who wanted to crown her older sister Blackfire, leading to civil war from 2028 to 2030.
Plot – Starfire’s ship crashes in Jump City in December 2030 and she is attacked by traditionalist Tamaraneans. Dick and Victor were just passing through, Wally was actively patrolling, and Roy was there on a overnight winter break field trip with his school. But when they see Starfire getting attacked, all 4 of them jump in to help and drive the attacking Tamaraneans away. Of course we get the iconic Starfire kisses Robin scene. After explaining her situation and that Blackfire will be back to capture her in the next month, Robin comes up with a plan to save her. They'll use the next month to set up a defensible position so Starfire will be protected. After learning Tamaraneans can’t swim, he chooses an island near Jump City to set up the base; he and Speedy provide funding, Cyborg designs its defenses, and Kid Flash constructs them superfast. During that time Robin teaches them to fight as a unit. Starfire personally teaches Robin Tamaranean martial arts and he in turn teaches her how to swim, and they grow closer to each other. In January 2031, Blackfire and her soldiers attack but the group is able to fight them off. Starfire is finally able to tell her sister the truth that she never wanted the throne and that she will stay on earth with her new family allowing Blackfire to rule their home world in peace. After revealing their identities to each other and christening themselves the Teen Titans, Superman flies down and admits to have been watching them the whole time and admiring their efforts. He asks if they’ll let his cousin Supergirl join their group so she can socialize with other super people.
Sequel tie-in – Alfred starts to tell Bruce of Robin’s exploits, but Bruce cuts him off and tells him never to say that name again before Alfred tells him he was referring to master Dick. Meanwhile, we see two Robin suits, one pristine and the other damaged and bloodstained in the background.
2031 - Batman II: The Dark Knight
Protagonist – Bruce Wayne (Batman) (31), Jason Todd (Robin) (17), Tim Drake (Robin) (15)
Antagonist – Roman Sionis (Black Mask), Joker
Characters – Barbara Gordon(Batgirl/Oracle) (25), Jim Gordon, Harleen Quinzel (Harley Quinn), Jonathan Crane (Scarecrow)
Background – After Robin emancipated himself in 2029, Bruce adopted Jason Todd when he found him trying to steal the Batmobile’s tires and trained him to be Robin. However, Jason has serious anger issues stemming from his abusive childhood and as a direct victim of Falcone’s criminal empire, he is often at odds with Batman’s no kill rule and methodical process to take down criminal organizations. In the wake of Falcone’s imprisonment, Roman Sionis built his criminal empire in the vacuum, which is precisely what Bruce now tries to prevent by dismantling criminal empires systematically. Barbara Gordon has been working with Bruce as Batgirl and has graduated from Gotham U and works in IT at the GCPD. Joker has been in Arkham for 5 years, but has slowly manipulated Harleen Quinzel into falling for him.
Plot Part 1 - September 2030, Arkham Asylum doctor and phobiologist Jonathan Crane has spent the last 5 years trying to discover what the Joker is afraid of, with no success. He injects Joker with fear toxin, a chemical of his own design which he developed specifically for Joker. However, the toxin has no effect. Harleen had already loosened Joker's restraints, and he frees himself before injecting Crane with his own toxin, putting him at Joker's mercy psychologically. Joker instructs Crane to find out what Batman is afraid of. Meanwhile, Jason is fed up with Batman's deliberate tactics. He infiltrates Black Mask's penthouse and beats him bloody before dropping him off at GCPD. Batman is furious and berates Jason, saying he undid all the progress of the past few years and that instead of going to jail for life he'll only do a few months before walking free. Jason retorts that if not for Batman's stupid no kill rule that wouldn't be an issue; Batman grounds him and forbids him from patrolling indefinitely.
Plot Part 2 - October 2030, Dr. Crane adopts the moniker and costume of Scarecrow and abducts a group of children. When Batman arrives to save them, Scarecrow douses him with the new aerosol form of his toxin, fear gas, before escaping. But he placed hidden cameras around the room to record Batman's reactions, and visibly and verbally hallucinates the death of Robin, Batgirl, and Jim Gordon in the line of duty. Scarecrow brings the footage back to Joker who is delighted at the news, he then kills Scarecrow and has Harley break him out of Arkham as she officially becomes Harley Quinn. Halloween Night 2030, Jason is still on punishment while Batman searches for where Joker has gone to ground. While Batman is patrolling, Barbara’s vitals monitor spikes. Batman races to Barbara’s location where he finds her shot on the floor of James Gordon’s house. Jason sees this through the Batcomputer’s visual cowl link before Batman shuts it off to keep Jason from seeing Barbara in that state. Overcome with rage, he reads the incomplete tracking algorithm of Joker’s hideout, which has isolated a few block radius at this point, and sets out to finds Joker. Alfred is sick with the flu that fall so he is unaware of these events. Jason bursts into Joker’s hideout half cocked and puts up a valiant fight but is overcome by the number of Joker goons there. Joker orders everyone to leave and tells Harley to start the car and wait for him. He tortures Jason for hours and brands him like in Arkham Knight. He then thanks Jason. Knowing Batman’s greatest fear, he went to the Commissioner’s house to maim and kill Jim. Barbara was there by coincidence however, and Joker shot her in the spine. He was too disappointed to do more than that and just left her there. Now, the Joker is delighted because if Robin was so angry about the police commissioner’s daughter being hurt, then she was probably special to Batman too. And it led Robin to Joker so he gets a two for one. He wishes Jason a Happy Halloween before killing him and leaving. After Batman made sure Barbara was stabilized, he contacted the Cave but got no response. He returns home and sees no one there but sees the algorithm has found Joker’s hideout and that Jason’s uniform is gone. He races to the warehouse and finds Jason’s body and cries.
Plot Part 3 - February 2031, It’s been months since Jason’s death. Barbara is paralyzed and had to give up being Batgirl. The Joker hasn’t been seen or heard in months and Batman’s best efforts and usual resources haven’t worked. He is much more ruthless with criminals and is cruel even to Selina when she says she doesn’t have any info on Joker either. His relationship with Alfred is becoming strained and the GCPD are reaching the end of their tolerance for his new brutal tactics. 15 year old Tim Drake is the smartest student at St. Swithuns Academy with a photographic memory and an idolization of Batman. When Bruce Wayne visited St. Swithuns and Tim notices the dark circles under his eyes and his slightly bruised and shaking knuckles, they confirmed his theories that Bruce Wayne was Batman and that there were multiple Robins. When Robin performed a quadruple somersault during news coverage of the Tamaranian incident, Tim remembered that when he went to Haley’s Circus when he was 8, the Flying Graysons performance boasted that Dick was the only human capable of it. After reviewing the video of the act his family took, he confirmed it was the same person. He theorized Bruce Wayne might be Batman but required more proof. When Bruce Wayne announced his second adopted son, Jason, disappeared and was presumed dead on a boating accident while studying abroad, and with reports of a solo Batman becoming more brutal, the visual confirmation was all Tim needed to reach a conclusion. As Bruce was leaving, Tim snuck into the limo and confronted Bruce about being Batman. After cornering Bruce into admitting his identity, Tim convinced Bruce to let him help. After having Batman recollect the events that occurred before Jason’s death, he concluded that Scarecrow might have been working for Joker. After reviewing the cowl cam’s recording of the event, they realize that Batman showed clear fear concerning the safety of Jim Gordon, Batgirl, and Robin. Upon hacking into the Arkham employee timesheets and seeing that Harley Quinn and Jonathan Crane’s overlapped considerably in the months before Joker’s escape, Tim concluded that Scarecrow was working for Joker and upon informing him of Batman’s fears Joker got rid of him. He concluded that now Joker is hiding and hoping to watch the process as Batman unravels and descends into madness. Tim’s solution is for Batman to change back to his normal, less ruthless, demeanor and to allow himself to be photographed with Tim dressed as Robin at his side. Joker, hoping to see Batman distraught, will instead seeing him fine and having already moved on. The fact that Robin is there too will make Joker question if he evil killed Robin at all, which will be confusing and frustrating for him. Joker will then lash out impulsively do something crazy, assuming the police will be lax after his sabbatical and that he will be able to disappear again. But, the GCPD will be on high alert because Batman will warn them what will happen and they will call Batman immediately. Tim’s plan works to perfection and the Joker and Harley Quinn are caught and returned to Arkham. While he does not want to endanger anyone else, Bruce sees that Tim can't walk away from a vigilante lifestyle now that he's had a taste. At this point leaving Tim untrained will put him in even more danger. Thus, Batman agrees to train Tim to be the next Robin.

2020.06.28 01:07 startaquizbowlteam Quizbowl Competition Names: A Brief Census and Guide

One consistent theme of posts in this subreddit is that there's no consistent name for "quizbowl"-like activities around the country. There are many regional variations on quizbowl and lots of different names given to quizbowl, which often results in some confusion. Thus, here is a brief overview of each of these names (feel free to add your own in the comments!) so that people can better understand where they come from and to what extent they comport with quizbowl more generally.
Note that within all of these different names for quizbowl, the quality of the questions and competitions varies considerably. What matters is less what the competition is called and more what the format and the questions are.
One of the biggest differences is the degree to which questions in different quizbowl competitions are pyramidal--that is, are constructed to avoid misleading players and to fairly distinguish between players with different levels of knowledge. You can read more about the concept of pyramidality here, but do note that some companies and places that claim to be "pyramidal" are not actually pyramidal in terms of how they write their questions.
Everything here is just my opinion, of course.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Quizbowl or Quiz Bowl: this is the most common name for quizbowl competitions in general. Sometimes you might see "Academic Quiz Bowl" to signify that quizbowl is more academic than just trivia. Regardless, most of the time quiz bowl is some kind of buzzer-based competition in which players use a buzzer to signal when they're ready to answer a question. The extent to which a given quizbowl league or format is pyramidal though varies widely depending on the question writeprovider.
Academic Bowl: This is another variation on the name "quizbowl" that varies a bit by region, but overall doesn't seem to be consistently in one area or another.
Academic Challenge: Common in New Jersey, Ohio, Wyoming, and various smaller areas like Berks County, PA. Rules differ dramatically between local formats, though in general these are often not pyramidal.
Academic Competition: Somewhat unique to Pennsylvania, with local counties sponsoring things like the Chester County Academic Competition.
Academic Decathlon: A separate company that operates a separate competition that consists more of taking tests on specific subjects, though there is a "Super Quiz" portion that is somewhat quizbowl-ish. Pretty much a different thing entirely and not quizbowl.
Academic League: Specific to a few counties like San Diego CA and Salem NJ but occasionally used in other areas. Often not pyramidal, though some specific academic leagues in San Diego have adopted pyramidal questions.
Academic Olympics: Used in Reno, NV and Horry County, SC as well as a few other areas. Often includes a quizbowl-ish portion, but may have other events as well.
Brain Bowl: Sometimes used in Florida, though it can also refer to specific competitions related to the human brain.
Hi-Q: A relatively ancient (dating back to 1948) form of quizbowl that hasn't changed much since. Local to a few areas where a certain paper mill company was based (Green Bay WI, Delaware County PA, Northern Seattle, and Northern Alabama).
It's Academic: A long-running TV quiz show with its own unique format. Used to be in a lot of cities, now limited mostly to the DC area.
Knowledge Bowl: Common in Minnesota, the Dakotas, Colorado, Washington State, and some other places like the Mid-South. Usually uses questions from Academic Hallmarks, though that may change as the company has changed ownership recently. Often not pyramidal and may have written tests in addition to buzzer-based rounds.
NAQT: NAQT is a specific question-writing company. It is not a specific format or type of question (a common misconception); NAQT questions can be used in a wide variety of formats. NAQT questions are always pyramidal, though they vary in length and difficulty depending on the specific type of set (some NAQT speed round questions can be 1-2 lines, though most used at weekend invitational tournaments are 3-4 lines).
National Academic League: Specific to Utah, Wichita, and some other areas. Has a rather out-of-date website. Is decidedly not pyramidal.
Quick Recall: Almost entirely a Kentucky-based name that comes from the Kentucky Governor's Cup competition. Quick Recall itself is slightly different than quizbowl and usually not as pyramidal, but sometimes this term is used to include any kind of buzzer-based competition in KY.
Scholastic Bowl: Used primarily in Illinois for the state competition and in Virginia for their state competition as well. As of 2020, Illinois and Virginia's state competitions are pyramidal.
Scholars Bowl: Tends to be most common in Kansas, Vermont, and the Deep South, though the formats greatly differ. Kansas Scholars Bowl is somewhat notorious as one of the most highly-regulated types of quizbowl in the country while Vermont and Alabama use NAQT questions with some small variations in format (i.e. like worksheets or different timing rules). [EDIT: as pointed out in the comments, this is also a very common name for quizbowl in Missouri]
Subject-Specific Quizbowl: here you have things like Certamen for Latin, Science Bowl, National Ocean Science Bowl, National History Bee and Bowl, etc. Each of these formats differs in their level of pyramidality as well--NHBB tends to be very pyramidal while Science Bowl continues to have multiple-choice question tossups that are pretty much the opposite of pyramidal.
Varsity Quiz: A long-running Las Vegas TV competition run by the Kiwanis.
Hope this helps clear things up for people; feel free to add more local formats too!

2020.06.24 01:46 Retil-iH Eisenhower Part One: Biography

Dwight David Eisenhower was born on October 14th, 1890, in Denison, Texas. He was the third child of David and Elizabeth Eisenhower, who would go on to have four more children after Dwight. The Eisenhower's were descendants of German immigrants, and were deeply impoverished. David Eisenhower used to run a store in Hope, Kansas, but moved to Texas in 1889 after it went under. The Eisenhower's would then move to Abilene, Kansas in 1892, with only $24 dollars (Or in today’s money, $683) to their name. In Abilene, David became a factory worker, and eventually a creamer at his brother-in-law's factory, which resulted in the Eisenhower family becoming financially secure. The move was not without tragedy, however. Dwight’s ten-month old brother, Paul, would die of dysphoria when Dwight was four. Dwight, or as he became known to his family, Ike, would still have a happy childhood in Abilene, where he lived until he shipped off for West Point. He would play baseball and American football, go to Abilene High School, and otherwise have a normal childhood for the time. After Dwight graduated High School in 1909, he would join his father and uncle at the creamery where they worked, as well as becoming a part time fireman. Dwight would use the money from his job to pay for his brother Edgar’s college education, with the caveat that they would switch positions every two years, with Dwight going to college while Edgar paid for it. This deal never came to pass, as Eisenhower would instead go to West Point, New York.
While at West Point, Eisenhower put more emphasis on football than military training and discipline. Indeed, at the end of his time at West Point in 1915, he ranked 61st in academics, with his best subject being English. He would graduate from West Point 125th in discipline - out of the 164 graduates in his year. Eisenhower would be commissioned as a Second Lieutenant and sent to San Antonio, Texas. While he was stationed there, he met Mamie Geneva Doud, the daughter of a successful Denver businessman. They were instantly attracted to each other, and by Valentines Day 1916 they were engaged. They would marry in July, instead of their planned date in November due to increasing tensions during World War One. Eisenhower would request to be stationed in the Philippines, an offer the Army declined. Instead, Eisenhower was sent from Army training camp to Army training camp, where he would train soldiers to fight in the trenches of Europe. The Eisenhower's would have their first child in 1917, who they named Doud Dwight Eisenhower. Sadly, Doud would not see his fourth birthday, as he died of Scarlet Fever. Dwight would never talk about what happened with Doud for the rest of his life.. Meanwhile, the war in Europe ended, with Dwight bitter he was never sent to fight. However, the bitterness would reside a little when his second child, John, was born in 1922. Dwight would then spend the next 16 years as a major, where his expertise in tank warfare would be exploited, with meetings with such people as George Patton and Sereno E. Brett. Ironically, Eisenhower would be threatened with a court martial for putting forward an idea for a lightning fast offensive using tanks: something Adolf Hitler would famously utilize more than a decade later. Another example of a job was for Eisenhower to move a military convoy from Washington D.C. to Los Angeles. The extremely slow speed of the convoy resulted in Eisenhower's massive infrastructure improvement plan during his presidency.
From 1922-1924, Eisenhower would be stationed in the Panama Canal Zone, where he would become a good friend of his superior officer: Brigadier General Fox Conner. This friendship would then result in Eisenhower being accepted at Command and General Staff School in Fort Leavenworth, Texas. Eisenhower would graduate first out of 275 students, and became an aide to General Douglas McArthur. Eisenhower was promoted to colonel in 1941, and would become a general later that year after Chief of Staff George Marshall noted how well Eisenhower directed wargames of over 500,000 troops. Marshall appointed Eisenhower to the army's war plans division, where he would become a Major General in 1942. Eisenhower would see combat the first time at Operation Torch, the successful Allied invasion of Northern Africa. Eisenhower helped plan the campaign, and would lead US troops during it. Eisenhower would then be given control over all Allied forces in Africa, which culminated in the allied invasion of Italy in 1943. This invasion would prove to be a major testing ground for Eisenhower, as he had to deal with not only the Italian and Germany forces opposing him, but insubordinate subordinates, like General Patton. However, Eisenhower's victory in Italy resulted in him becoming the Supreme Allied Commander of the Allied Expeditionary Force, and he was sent to Britain in order to plan and execute D-Day. D-Day was a costly success, and by May 1945 Nazi Germany had been crushed between the Allies and the Soviet Union. Eisenhower was appointed military governor of American-Occupied Germany, where he spread photos and newsreels of the Holocaust and purged many Nazis in a process known as De-Nazification. He was then sent back to the US as Army General Staff, and focused on de-mobilizing the armed forces.
After the war, Eisenhower was all for cooperation with the Soviets - this changed as the Cold War heated up, and he started to believe in the Truman Doctrine of containment. Eisenhower declined to run for either parties nomination in 1948, even though Harry Truman wanted him as either Vice President or President. After this, Eisenhower became a Republican, and afterwards became president of Columbia University, in New York City. Here he published his memoirs, and settled into retirement- until a new job offer landed on his doorstep: leadership of the new North Atlantic Treaty Organization. Soon afterwards, he took an extended leave from Columbia University in order to become Supreme Commander of N.A.T.O. As Supreme Commander, Eisenhower popularized NATO in both the United States and Europe: his efforts were successful, and NATO became a permanent military power in the world. But his job as NATO Supreme Commander was not meant to last. In 1952, after a long time refusing to get into politics, Eisenhower was eventually convinced by the massive popular support he had to run for president. Eisenhower was the popular candidate to win, as he was able to unite his party by nominating a young, conservative, anti-communist vice president named Richard Nixon. Running on his popularity, as well as the unpopular nature of the Democratic Party in 1952 resulted in a landslide of 442 electoral votes to 89 electoral votes, and an almost 11% popular vote victory. Eisenhower would run again, and win in 1956 by an even bigger landslide of 457 electoral votes to 73 electoral votes, as well as a 15% popular vote victory. Eisenhower would endorse Richard Nixon in 1960, who lost by a very narrow margin to John F. Kennedy. Eisenhower would spend the rest of his life lobbying for Republican candidates, before dying in 1969.

2020.06.23 15:15 adameby02 Kentucky Wildcats thriving in the NBA

Written in the summer of 2018 right after Boogie signed with the Warriors.
Calling Out Kentucky Kids
Duke basketball is often referred to as a brotherhood in NCAA. If that is true, the University of Kentucky is more of a social club. We have common goals. We can’t offer an Olympian Coach or a room full of strippers but we will offer a city that is head over heels in love with the game of basketball.
What the University of Kentucky can offer for these players as they prepare for their next chapter is a shot at the big stage. Not only will Coach Cal do everything possible to get you past the second round of March Madness, the Kentucky fans will rush to idolize you as a player and just as quickly move on to the next recruit.
Speed Dating
It is kind of like speed dating. We as fans have about five months to watch these athletes play because of the “one and done” rule. After they make a run in March with us, they are off to professionalism. But even after their departure we have a desire to see them perform at the next level.
Anthony Davis, Demarcus Cousins, John Wall, Eric Bledsoe, Jamal Murray, Karl Anthony Towns, Rajon Rondo, Devin Booker, Malik Monk, De’Aaron Fox, Kevin Knox, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Julius Randle, Bam Adebayo, Nerlens Noel, Willie Cauley-Stein, Trey Lyles, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Terrence Jones, Enes Kanter, Brandon Knight, Patrick Patterson, James Young, Archie Goodwin, Marquis Teague, or even Daniel Orton.
The above list is made up of alumni that have left our campus with the highest of expectations and landed in the first round of the NBA draft. If you’re a fan of the 21st century NBA, at least one of these names hold a place in your memory whether they were your team’s draft selection one year or were thrown around in your team’s trade rumors.
Kentucky seems to have a handful of first round picks each and every year, with other NCAA powerhouses like Duke, Kansas, and Louisville with not nearly as many. To put it simply, since John Calipari took over in 2010 Kentucky has produced roughly as many first round draft picks for the NBA as Kentucky’s rivals Duke and Kansas... combined!
Next Level
Getting to the league is just half of the battle though. Once earning a spot on an NBA roster, these extremely talented players coming out of college might as well flip a coin on whether they will succeed with decorated accolades or even longevity in their career.
Thanks to the Golden State Warriors back in June, Quinn Cook was the latest Duke alumni to win an NBA title since Shane Battier with the Miami Heat. Unfortunately the last UK alumni to raise a banner was ten years ago when the Boston Celtics started Rajon Rondo at point guard in his third NBA season.
In 2018 Kentucky had 13 players on rosters in the playoffs and some of those were second round draft picks like Alex Poythress for the Pacers or Dakari Johnson for the Thunder.
One of the best performances came from none other than 2012 NCAA champion Anthony Davis, aka “The Brow”. After teammate Demarcus Cousins aka “Boogie” went down with an achilles injury midseason, The Brow declared himself in “Russell Westbrook Mode” per Rachel Nichols The Jump.
Averaging over 30 points and 13 rebounds a game Davis tore through the third seed Portland Trailblazers in a 4 - 0 sweep. Fellow UK alumni Rajon Rondo, injured Boogie, DeAndre Liggins, and Darius Miller rallied behind Davis on the Pelicans.
After being eliminated by the Warriors in the second round, Pelicans lost Cousins to the Warriors themselves and waived Liggins in the offseason. Rondo signed with the LeBron led Lakers passing Julius Randle on his way out. Randle joined Davis as the new Kentucky alumni duo alongside Miller in New Orleans for 2019.
The Chase
Inevitably Kentucky alumni as a social club will finally win another ring. This time with the defending champions through Demarcus Cousins signing a veteran minimum with the Warriors while rehabbing his achilles.
As most fans don’t count Kevin Durant’s rings as evenly valued as other player’s rings, the UK alumni should also feel like there is still unfinished business after the Warriors get Boogie a ring.
It’s not an easy task as only about seventeen percent of NBA players actually retire with a ring in their possession. Considering it is already near impossible to make it to the league, coming out on top against twenty-nine other teams is to a player what Mount Everest is to a climber.
Being born and raised here in Lexington, Kentucky I want to call out all of my wildcats in the NBA and raise the expectations past first round picks and first round playoff sweeps. We need a NBA championship from our alumni whether it takes John Wall getting traded away from the disgruntled Wizards onto a contender’s roster or Devin Booker simply scoring seventy points every game from here on out.
Seventeen percent is not a lot. It is roughly what you leave your waitress as a tip or the difference between an A and a C in school. Some fans may be satisfied with an allstar or maybe even a rookie of the year but as a member of Big Blue Nation we want the MVP of the NBA finals and nothing less. C - A - T - S.

2020.06.23 11:27 adameby02 NBA article about Kentucky Players

Calling Out Kentucky Kids
Duke basketball is often referred to as a brotherhood in NCAA. If that is true, the University of Kentucky is more of a social club. We have common goals. We can’t offer an Olympian Coach or a room full of strippers but we will offer a city that is head over heels in love with the game of basketball.
What the University of Kentucky can offer for these players as they prepare for their next chapter is a shot at the big stage. Not only will Coach Cal do everything possible to get you past the second round of March Madness, the Kentucky fans will rush to idolize you as a player and just as quickly move on to the next recruit.
Speed Dating
It is kind of like speed dating. We as fans have about five months to watch these athletes play because of the “one and done” rule. After they make a run in March with us, they are off to professionalism. But even after their departure we have a desire to see them perform at the next level.
Anthony Davis, Demarcus Cousins, John Wall, Eric Bledsoe, Jamal Murray, Karl Anthony Towns, Rajon Rondo, Devin Booker, Malik Monk, De’Aaron Fox, Kevin Knox, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Julius Randle, Bam Adebayo, Nerlens Noel, Willie Cauley-Stein, Trey Lyles, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Terrence Jones, Enes Kanter, Brandon Knight, Patrick Patterson, James Young, Archie Goodwin, Marquis Teague, or even Daniel Orton.
The above list is made up of alumni that have left our campus with the highest of expectations and landed in the first round of the NBA draft. If you’re a fan of the 21st century NBA, at least one of these names hold a place in your memory whether they were your team’s draft selection one year or were thrown around in your team’s trade rumors.
Kentucky seems to have a handful of first round picks each and every year, with other NCAA powerhouses like Duke, Kansas, and Louisville with not nearly as many. To put it simply, since John Calipari took over in 2010 Kentucky has produced roughly as many first round draft picks for the NBA as Kentucky’s rivals Duke and Kansas... combined!
Next Level
Getting to the league is just half of the battle though. Once earning a spot on an NBA roster, these extremely talented players coming out of college might as well flip a coin on whether they will succeed with decorated accolades or even longevity in their career.
