9PM Sept. 29: Clare Bronfman has demanded an in-person hearing at the Eastern District court in Brooklyn. Consequently, there will be no call-in number to listen in on the proceedings. Sorry to get folks hopes up on that. I'd like to say that this turn belies Bronfman's lawyers' "concerns" about COVID-19. There will undoubtedly be a lot of people arriving for the hearing, enough so that there is reported to be an overflow room booked for the press. This is not a very good time to be doing this because COVID-19 is surging in the City, particularly in Brooklyn. It makes me angry to note this. Other defendants, in other trials, have accepted remotely conducted hearings during COVID-19. I don't know why this defendant thinks she's so special, but it's entirely within character. But paraphrasing Barbara Bouchey: I'm willing to give the Girl Scout Try and go to the courthouse and get an idea of what goes on. If there's enough room to socially distance, I'll go in. If I see there's a big crowd, then I'm erring on the side of caution and leaving things to professionals. 6AM Sept. 30 - Below are some writeups (in no particular order) written in anticipation of the sentencing hearing this morning, and also Twitter accounts by individual reporters. Be nice to reporters please.
7AM Sept. 30 - Not an update, but I just feel like sharing today's theme music https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VJ2itQvyBY8 8:11AM Sept. 30 - Good Morning America aired this story on the sentencing: https://twitter.com/GMA/status/1311277583762370561 8:40AM Sept. 30 - Courtroom gadfly blogger Matthew Russell Lee (dba Inner City Press), who covers many cases in the NYC federal courts, has sent Judge Garaufis a letter of protest for not allowing a dial-in number to monitor the case. While Mr. Lee is a bit eccentric, I believe he is correct on the fact that this is a really bad precedent in the pandemic. 9:05AM Sept. 30 - Checking Judge Garaufis's schedule at the EDNY website, the courtroom is also booked for a Bronfman sentencing for tomorrow, "only if it [does] not conclude on September 30, 2020." Perhaps there is an expectation of long proceedings today. 9:22AM Sept. 30 - I'm at the EDNY court complex. The press has started camping out across the street, and there's a line awaiting the opening of the day. Everyone is masked up, but I don't recognize anyone in particular. Security is present at the door with no particularly strong measures —this isn't quite the Chapo trial. 12:00PM Sept. 30 - I went in around 9:45AM. Since I saw Chakravorty (and someone who might have been Jim Del Negro) with some sort of press-gaggle/entourage, I decided to go in and reserve a seat in an overflow room; no guilt over denying them seats. I did see Barbara Bouchey and possibly Toni Natale enter shortly after I came in. Unfortunately, after waiting around for a while, the situation with audio/visual in the overflow room was a total disaster where the camera had to have been an old surveillance cam and audio was not getting piped in. Several reporters present went to try to give them a piece of their minds and were only told that AV people were working on it. We probably missed a substantial portion of Judge Garaufis's remarks. Nobody was recognizable on camera. So from here on out, I'm posting tweets and then writeups remote from the courthouse, until I get word that there's a press gaggle at the doors. Apologies to everyone, this is a really hard situation for a lot of people (least of all me). 12:30PM Sept. 30 - Some stories that hit as I was at the EDNY complex:
12:50PM Sept. 30 - While we wait, I thought this was a little bit of justice: as mentioned, Clare Bronfman insisted on an in-person proceeding. Her family (including Sara) are all out of the country and wanted to show support by watching the event over the feed. Judge Garaufis has summarily denied the request. 1:14PM Sept. 30 - The sentencing hearing has taken a recess. So far, the court has heard victim-impact statements. Writeup by Giuliana Bruno https://twitter.com/GiulianaBrunoTV/status/1311353764280967169:
#ClareBronfman’s sentencing proceeding is on break until 1:45. Victim impact statements just wrapped up. All echoed that their involvement in NXIVM, funded by Bronfman, ruined their lives, and that Bronfman was a Raniere enabler.
Clare, after all the evidence, after countess victims whom you considered among friends—how can you remain loyal to your Vanguard? No matter how hard you try, you cannot be principled if the person you follow is a sociopath and a convicted criminal. Your Honor, when Raniere raised Clare to power in 2009, she began using her position to exploit me through indentured servitude. As soon as Clare supplanted Nancy Salzman as NXIVM’s de facto decision maker in the executive board, Clare lowered my pay, removed what insignificant privileges the company afforded me and raised my rent—all punishments for my supposed “ethical breach” against Raniere. In truth, she punished me for disobeying him. Salzman would later tell me Clare did these things of her own volition.
“In my opinion you’re a predator. You should feel shame, self loathing ... You should understand there are lives you destroyed," said Susan Dones, a former cult member who cried as she spoke.
3:22PM Sept. 30 - I'm back, outside the courthouse. Camera people have started taking positions as if expecting a conclusion (there were 3 victim impact statements, then statements by the lawyers left after the recess). 3:49PM Sept. 30 - Someone came out of the overflow room and told everyone in the camera crews that victim impact statements are concluded. Defense has given their bit as well. Judge Garaufis is now speaking. 4:05PM Sept. 30 - there's word that Clare Bronfman was immediately remanded into custody. Reporters are rushing out the courthouse. Awaiting details in a press conference if one is held. 4:08PM Sept. 30 - Someone who was inside has just come out. There is word that Bronfman got 81 months. There is a small group of Nxians in the park near the courthouse complex talking to their own cameraman. Asu/cabassiandu/Trisolaran_arbitragehave pointed out,Nicole HongofNY Timeshas confirmed: 81 months for Clare Bronfman. This is consistent with what Rob Gavin is reporting on Twitter. That sentence is 21 months above what prosecutors had requested in their final sentencing memorandum, and is 54 months above the threshold Clare Bronfman's lawyers set when she plead out. 4:20PM Sept. 30 - Acting US Attorney for Eastern District Seth DuCharme of EDNY came out briefly and didn't say much other than thanking his Assistant USA's (who were very good on this case, btw). That was not really notable. What was notable was a whole crew of US Marshals in military-style uniform escorting the US Attorney and others back to their headquarters a block away. I suspect this is a show of force after the Make Justice Blind crew of Nxians pulled a publicity stunt at their offices. They are not taking chances these days. 4:40PM Sept. 30 - Here are some reactions and stories: Rob Gavin / Times-Union
A number of former NXIVM members delivered victim impact statements to Senior U.S. District Judge Nicholas Garaufis. One of those women was Barbara Bouchey, a former girlfriend of Raniere's who faced years of retaliation by NXIVM after she left the group more than a decade ago. She called Garaufis' sentence justice served: “When I heard him say 81 months, I was speechless,” Bouchey said.
However, U.S. District Judge Nicholas Garaufis believed she deserved additional time. He gave her almost seven years in prison and a $500,000 fine. Bronfman, wearing a dark face mask with a flower pattern, was taken into custody immediately. “I am shocked, relieved and surprised—this is a meaningful win for those of us who were directly victimized by Clare Bronfman,” Ivy Nevares, a former long-time NXIVM member, told The Daily Beast. “None of us were expecting the Court to surpass the prosecution’s recommendation... At long last, justice is being served.”
The overwhelming theme in these [victim-impact] statements: Bronfman weaponized her vast wealth, both by pursuing perceived enemies of the group and enabling Raniere’s behavior. “Claire, you gave millions of dollars to him,” one victim said in a video statement. Even if Bronfman didn’t know what the money went toward, the woman said: “you were and are the propellant to this unyielding fire.” “Did you ever consider that they just wanted your money and what would have happened if you just stopped giving your money?” one woman said. “Would you be as important to them?” One woman, who said she had a 13-year-old son with Raniere, said that he never paid child support. Because of Bronfman’s financial misconduct, this woman said, the situation “is depriving my son of proper financial support.” Others described their continued fear of Bronfman, with one saying, “I’m always going to be looking over my shoulder.”

2020.07.27 19:09 eyeknowwhodiditThe Strange Disappearance of Paula Jean Weldon in the Bennington Triangle
One of the most famous stories from the Bennington Triangle is that of Paula Weldon from 1946. ***EDIT: In the link below is the story and there are a lot of pictures and actual copies of news paper articles. Also Paulas Picture. It’s nice to see her face while reading the story. ***** https://www.strangeoutdoors.com/mysterious-stories-blog/2019/12/12/the-strange-disappearance-of-paulajean-weldon-in-the-bennington-triangle On Sunday, December 1, 1946, Paula Jean Weldon, 18, finished her job at the Commons at Bennington College in Vermont. She worked two shifts in the dining hall and then returned to her room in the Dewey Hall dorm and changed her clothes and told her roommate she was going for a long hike. Her roommate remembered Paula saying she was feeling a bit depressed in the days before and and she had not gone home over Thanksgiving for reasons unknown. Paula was the eldest of four daughters of William Archibald Welden of Stamford, CT, who was a design engineer at Revere Copper and Brass. Her sisters were Steph (14), Pamela (16) and Heather (5). She was 5 feet 5 inches tall and weighed 123 lbs and had a grayish scar on left knee; vaccination mark on right thigh as well as a small scar under left eye under eyebrow. She enjoyed swimming, biking, skating, hiking, camping, square dancing and playing the guitar and was interested in botany. Paula was wearing a Red parka jacket with fur trimmed hood, blue jeans, white sneakers with heavy soled Top-Sider size 6 1/2 or 7. She was also wearing a small, gold Elgin ladies wrist watch with narrow black band. This watch has repairer's marking, 13050 HD, scratched on the inside of back case. It was 50 degrees on Sunday when Paula left the college, explaining her light clothing, but by the evening it grew much colder and windier with snow. By Monday it was 9 degrees in Bennington with a wind. She was seen by several other students heading down towards Route. 67A. Danny Fager, at the service station across from the College Entrance, saw her walk down the drive about 2:30 pm, turn to her right and run up a small knoll at the college entrance, run back down, and walk down Route. 67A towards Bennington. Louis Knapp picked her up at about 2:45 pm and took her as far as his home on Rt. 9, about 3 miles from the Long Trail where she planned to hike, about 30 minutes later. At around 4pm, Ernest Whitman and three friends coming out of a camp in Bickford Hollow saw Paula, and she asked Ernie about the length of the trail, before they saw her head towards a bridge leading to the trail. Several other Woodford residents claim to have seen her in the vicinity of Fay Fuller Camp, further up the trail, but he reliability of these reports is uncertain. With darkness descending around 4.15-4.30 pm, she was on the trail with inadequate clothing and no supplies. She was never seen again. After Paula failed to show up for classes on Monday, December 2, Mary Garrett, director of admissions, called State's Attorney William Travers Jerome, Jr. to the college at noon. Paula's father, William, also arrived that day. Paula had once said that she would like to visit the Everett Cave on Mt. Anthony, so Henry Steele of Fairdale Farms, working as a guide, with some of the students, headed to the Cave area that afternoon but found nothing. Abe Ruskin, a local taxi driver, stated he had taken a student to the bus station on Sunday afternoon, but couldn't positively identify her as Paula. There were several buses she could have taken - Pittsfield, NYC, Albany, or Burlington. The clerks at the station didn't remember anyone of her description, but it was a busy day. A waitress at the Modern restaurant on Pleasant Street, called Ora Telletier, served on a girl matching Paula's description at 9:30 pm. Ora said the girl was with a young man of about 25 who was drunk and abusive. When he went to the counter, the girl signalled Ora to come over. She asked how far it was to Bennington Vermont, and then asked where she was. She said she had to get to Bennington and that she had arrived in Fall River with $1000 but had nothing left. The girl had not been drinking but seemed dazed. That evening, the media put out her story and authorities in NY and Massachusetts were alerted, and photographs circulated. As no one knew where Paula might have gone, no formal search and rescue effort was started. On Tuesday, December 3, R.N. Thompson, the manager of Vermont Transit in Burlington, said he would contact all the bus drivers who left Bennington on Sunday afternoon to find if she boarded any of those busses. Searches were carried out on the College Campus and the section of the Long Trail leading to the Glastenbury Fire Station which crosses Route 9 on the Brattleboro Road near Hell Hollow and Bickford Hollow. Frank Tschorn, superintendent of Buildings and Grounds at the college, took charge of the squads of volunteers who searched on Tuesday and Wednesday. A hunter called Herman Spencer and usually stayed in the Sausville Camp halfway to the Glastenbury Tower, assisted in the search, as did Bennington College students, Boy Scouts, about 25 Williams College students, members of the Green Mountain Club, and 30 others from the Bennington area. Sheriff W. Clyde Peck who was familiar with the Long Trail area, joined the search on Wednesday night. At 5:30 pm that day, Ernie Whitman, night watchman at the Banner newspaper, noticed the photograph of Paula on the front page of that day’s edition. He told reporter Pete Stevenson that he had talked to the girl about 4:00 pm Sunday afternoon in Woodford. He and three friends, Stearns and Mary Rice and Lyman Royce, were returning from a camp when a girl approached them and asked directions to the Long Trail, saying she wanted to walk along it. The girl asked them how far the trail went and they told her that they had only walked about 5 miles of it, but that it went through to Canada. She thanked the group and went on her way walking across a bridge which led only to the Long Trail. On this news, Paul’s father, Frank Howe II, and Pete Stevenson drove to Woodford to begin a search. Three residents confirmed they had seen the girl walking towards the Long Trail, and she was last seen near a camp called Hunter's Rest. The three men walked towards Glastenbury, looking 20 foot on each side of the trail to make sure nothing was missed. They continued to a camp owned by William Lauzon, which was about 4 miles below the fire tower, but the going was tough due to around three inches of snow which fell Sunday night. It was unlikely that she could have reached this camp because she would have had trouble crossing the stream and she was only wearing sneakers. The group managed to speak to Lauzon, but he hadn't seen Paula. He also told them three servicemen had passed through earlier on Sunday, also not dressed for the trail, and had left a suitcase with him. They had not returned and they looked through the suitcase. The servicemen was named as J. W. Carrol, William Watts, and M. Golder. Lauzon also said that a deer hunter Middie Rivers had disappeared from his camp the year before. The Authorities concluded there must have been two girls in the area of the Long Trail on Sunday - Paula and another woman who was with a man who had a car. They both fitted the description of Paula, except the other woman was taller, and this may have caused some confusion among the witnesses. On Wednesday night College President Jones issued a statement that authorities suspected foul play and that they believed Paula's body had been concealed. Three men who spent the last weekend at a camp near Glastenbury had already been questioned. John Proud of the Adams Clothes Store said he had sold clothes to a man on Saturday afternoon. The man was with two other men and said they might be going hiking, also that he was a student at a photographic school in New Haven. This man matched a description given by the Fall River Police early Thursday morning. On December 5, searches began at dawn in a seven square mile area between Bald and Glastenbury Mountains. Over 125 people from Bennington and Williams college as well as locals assisted in this search, led by Sheriff Clyde Peck. Five aircraft were deployed as well as 120 men from the State Guard, meaning that nearly 500 searchers were involved. Each searcher carried confetti to drop to ensure each area was searched and none searched twice. A thorough search of the Blue Trail over Bald mountain was made after a Bennington College faculty member found footprints Wednesday afternoon that might have been made by sneakers. But the 500 searchers found nothing. The search of the Long Trail was concluded and the authorities believed Paula was not in that area. Her father said he was satisfied the search had been well conducted. A woodsman on the eastern slope of Glastenbury near Searsburg reported he had heard what he thought was a woman screaming and the authorities checked the area and found nothing. A $500 reward was offered for anyone giving information leading to Paula being found. Some girls in Paula's residence at the college said she had been extraordinarily happy on Saturday night, causing some to suspect that she may have decided to make a change in her life, using the hike as a diversion. On December 15 the search operation was stopped. In May the following year when the snow melted, Paul’s father organised another two day search, but no trace of Paula was found. He criticized the authorities’ lack of sophisticated methods in handling the case, which actually served as the catalyst for the founding of the Vermont State Police seven months later. What happened to Paula? Maybe she got lost on the trail, but it is confined by a brook and the hill sides. The ground off the trail is extremely rough, with rocks and water and this is why the initial search was confined to a 20 foot area either side of the trail. She may have found a place off the trail to spend the night (as she and Elizabeth did 3 weeks before), planning to walk out in the morning but perhaps the weather worsened more than she expected. Was she abducted either on the trail or off it on her turn back to her dorm? Perhaps foul play was involved. Paula’s body nor possessions have never been found in the many years since her mysterious disappearance. The case remains open to this day.
2020.07.24 00:45 honeybee22222Should I embrace attention for my looks or try to tone it down?
I don't know how to phrase this question actually. I'm a 23 year old Japanese girl living in a small town in the South for a dream job I was scouted for. I've been living in the States for 4 years now. It is actually quite progressive here despite the state being conservative as a whole, but I definitely always stand out wherever I go. When I lived in NYC and Atlanta, I didn't stand out in any way because there were thousands of people who looked and acted like me everywhere and I did like the anonymity from that. Now (now as in pre-COVID at least) if I go to a bar or a show or anything with a crowd, I do get at least a couple stares in my direction. Not negatively, just noticing me. Is it better to just embrace the fact that I happen to be Asian and "unique" in this city, or tone it down, keep a low profile, and try to fit in? I don't mean fit in like faking it or hiding myself, but just keeping it quiet, I guess. I don't know. I may have a bias because in my culture and community it's always better to be modest and humble, but since I'm in an environment where just being me is enough to stand out, I don't know how to act or be sometimes. So far, no one has treated me badly, but I also have a fear that if I do something that is noticeable, people may pick on me or bully me somehow. My friend also told me I look very Japanese and I know I do. I don't look "Americanized" at all but I don't want to change my look just to fit in. What is the better method? And does anyone have any experience or advice for surviving/thriving in a place where you are a really tiny minority? (I looked up and I think I am actually probably one of the only Asians in the city haha).
2020.07.02 21:53 RhymelikedocsuessOne of the most popular posts on the TLOU2 sub is this list of supposed “plot holes”. For fun, I took time out of my day and addressed every single one, let me know what you guys think!
Let's make a list of all the plot holes of TLOU 2 (SPOILERS)
EVERYONE assumes that the surgeon would be 100% able to create a "vaccine" after opening Ellie's brain even though the first game (and science itself) says this is impossible + unnecessary because that's NOT how mycology and biology works.
1A) Everybody doesn’t assume they’d be able to create a vaccine from Ellie, but it is the only chance humanity has. The methodology is irrelevant because the strain of Cordyceps in this game is make believe. It real life the Cordyceps fungus only effects insects, and it’s in a far more rudimentary way then portrayed in the game. The insect is basically directly upwards to die so the spores that erupt from it can cover the most distance, they don’t turn into violent super strength migrating zombies with echolocation abilities. It’s called suspension of disbelief, almost every work of fiction has it.
Tommy the Dumbass introduces himself and Joel to Abby and her group using their real names even though at this point it is assumed that the remnants of the fireflies will DEFINITELY want revenge against the dude that killed Marlene.
2A) This has been thoroughly debunked, but one more time for old times sake. Tommy and Joel called out each others names in Abby’s presence during an infected fight in the middle of a blizzard. Abby knew Joel was with a man called Tommy in that general area of Jackson, so when she heard their names she knew she found her target. There is even a brief in gameplay scene when Joel’s name is called out and Abby takes a double take at him, showing that she knows who he is. Afterwards, when arriving at the house, Abby is avoiding Owen’s questions, staring at the ground, and distancing herself from Joel and Tommy. She’s mentally preparing to kill Joel, by the time Joel announces his name to the group he was already a dead man.
Abby kneecaps Joel without even confirming this is the same Joel that killed her dad; Abby then says "Joel Miller" and Joel goes against any survival skills so instead of denying that's his last name, baits her even further WTF.
3A) As shown in 2A above, it’s pretty obvious to her that this is the Joel she was looking for, there is nothing to discuss. Running into another duo with the same names in the area would be far less likely.
Ellie sees Abby beating Joel and hesitates in shooting Abby, gets her gun taken away, uses her knife to slash one dude (instead of throwing it towards Abby but whatever) then she is overpowered by two forgettable skinny ass NPCs.
4A) Ellie is shocked and cant believe what she is seeing, it’s a normal reaction. The second part of this about the 2 NPCs isn’t a plot hole, it’s a personal gripe. No issue here.
Abby's ruthless companions debate whether to let Ellie live or not then decide to spare her life even though she PROMISED to kill them all for Joel's death. They also spare Tommy who is Joel's brother and who will ALSO want to get revenge. This forgettable Gang of Losers is definitely too dumb to live that I'm surprised as to how they all survived these years.
5A) Half of Abbys group didn’t want to kill Ellie or Tommy, they’re we’re hardly all ruthless, Owen is the easy call out here. Have you ever been so angry you said things in the heat of the moment? Do you follow through with your threat every time or do you move on? That’s what they logically assumed Tommy and Ellie would do. Traveling from Wyoming to Seattle Washington to search for 1 person to get revenge in a post apocalyptic hellscape isn’t exactly something most people would do.
Tommy the Dumbass leaves for Seattle (after deducing that's where Abby is going based ONLY on the WLF logo on their jackets; this is like assuming someone is going to New York just because they have a Yankees' baseball cap FFS) on his own without Ellie and Nose Girl thus diminishing their chances of succeeding against Abby's Gang of Losers.
6A) Here is a better analogy, a group of individuals dressed in NYPD uniforms gun down your family in Georgia, and you have the Gaul to think they might be from NYC? The WLF is a militarized outfit. Sure, their clothing might have been stolen, but it’s a lead. Tommy goes alone because he wants to keep Ellie safe, pretty self explanatory.
The guy that Ellie slashed has her at his mercy and argues with the guy who captured her about how they should just spare her to extract info. Dude, you know how dangerous she is, JUST SHOOT HER!!!!! Then Nose Girl swoops in, kills the second dude, gets injured, and Scar Guy still doesn't just shoot Ellie!!!!! WTF!!!! How the f*** did this guy survive decades into the apocalypse? Nevermind, he dead now.
7A) How would they know she’s dangerous? They didn’t even know who she was. As Nora says when Ellie corners her “It’s..it’s you?” In regards to Ellie inhaling the spores. The only run in Ellie had with this man is him blowing up her horse, and getting her caught off guard when they killed Joel earlier. That wouldn’t register as a huge threat in my book. Better to interrogate her and see if she was scouting for a larger party than kill her outright. You can’t even argue that it’s because they’re we’re other dead WLF members in the area because, like I said above, they were worried there might be larger group of people from Jackson in the area, not just Ellie and Dina.
Asian Joel Wannabe thinks it is a good idea to surprise greet Ellie like that. I'm honestly surprised she didn't knife him or something.
8A) Not a plot hole. You could argue it was dumb, but I would counter with humans make mistakes. It’s a trademark of a well written character to not be all Mary-sues.
Poor Man's Halle Berry has 0 survival skills as well. Just lie to Ellie about where Abby is going instead of baiting her even further by calling Joel "a little bitch". SERIOUSLY, HOW DID ABBY'S GANG OF LOSERS SURVIVE THIS LONG INTO THE APOCALYPSE?
9A) Ellie had her at gunpoint and said “Tell me where she went and I’ll think about letting you go.” That’s hardly a reassuring comment. Nora could’ve lied, and Ellie would’ve likely shot her (as implied in an earlier cutscene where Ellie said they were all guilty because they travelled as a group many miles just to torture Joel), or she could’ve got under Ellie’s skin enough to have her slip up so she can make a break for it.
The WLF Soldiers have Ellie on their sights and instead of shooting her (even if that means killing Poor Man's Halle Berry as well), they simply let Ellie do what she wants and in the end, they all get killed by her in return. The WLF is definitely the world's worst pseudo-military group.
10A) This isn’t a plot hole. They aren’t going to shoot through one of their lead medical experts to kill a random outsider. Also in my game none of them died, they came into the basement and I snuck by them.
Mel and Owen have extremely low survival skills as well. Mel is pregnant and never tries to beg for her life by mentioning it. And instead of them trying to negotiate with Ellie, dumbass Owen tries to overpower her, gets shot, then preggo Mel tries to overpower Ellie as well. They both die like the losers they are.
11A) Mel was going to give Ellie what she wanted anyway so there was no reason to plead or bargain, she was walking over to mark on the map where Abby was, Owen was the one who escalated the situation despite Ellie being visible very angry. Owen got shot because he tried to overpower Ellie, not a plot hole. Mel then tried to kill Ellie because she shot the father of her child to be, not a plot hole.
Ellie surrenders to Abby instead of using any of her throwable items like the molotov cocktails. Sure, they could harm Tommy as well but come on kid, you REALLY think Abby is going to let you both live after you killed all of her friends? Are you stupid?
12A) My character didn’t have Moltovs/bricks or bottles at the time, so if they miraculously spawned one it would’ve been an issue. Not a plot hole. Secondly, Ellie thought Abby was after Ellie because she was the potential cure for the virus, not because of her dead friends, Ellie said so herself.
Abby's entire campaign feels a lot like DLC. At this point, I wouldn't be surprised if it was always meant to be DLC but was tacked into the main game to create more controversy + a higher-up at ND realized that there's no way gamers would pay extra money to play as fricking Abby.
13A) Personal gripe, not a plot hole, not much to discuss here. Abby’s story was needed because the theme of the game is about the cycle of violence, and how no matter how evil you think someone is that maybe after hearing their side of the story that their actions weren’t as unjustified as one originally thought.
Abby's dad is the world's worst mycologist/biologist. As I said before: the Fireflies want to cut out Ellie's brain to make a "vaccine" because her Cordyceps Brain Infection is symbiotic instead of parasitic; she's not unique, her infection is. Her infection itself is the vaccine. There is NO NEED TO OPEN HER BRAIN, that will kill BOTH the host AND the infection leaving you with nothing. A spinal tap is more than enough you dumb moron!!!!
14A) This is headcannon. As stated in 1A, the virus is make believe and you need a level of suspension of belief. Two, Ellie gets bit by another clicker toward the end of the game in Santa Barbra and she’s fine. Ellie is immune.
Marlene totally didn't predict that Joel would be against killing his surrogate daughter for some reason so she decides to spill the beans to him before the surgery. This is a plot hole from the first game but still, she has no survival skills and is way too dumb to live.
15A) Heavens forbid Marlene thinks Joel won’t make one of the most selfish choices in human history, gunning down a hospital full of people and taking a chance away for curing humanity of this horrible virus, for his own personal gain. This isn’t a plot hole. Good news though, Marlene is dead.
Abby's nickname is Abs. Get it? A character named Abs has abs. Amazing writing Neil.
16A) Not a plot hole.
"May your survival be long" is apparently the catchphrase of the WLF which is ironic since none of them have even the most basic survival skills.
17A) They were able to form a military in a post apocalyptic society with a rudimentary education system, a form of farming, and functional society. They seem to be doing pretty well until they invade the Scar’s Island.
A member of the WLF complains about having burritos for breakfast again. As a Mexican, I find that Latinophobic, Neil. Also, why is Self Insert Neil Druckman randomly inserting Spanish words into his English sentences? WE DON'T TALK LIKE THAT! He also cuts in line completely disrespecting everyone. Is Neil trying to write himself as the scumbag he is in real life?
18A) Heated gamer moment right here, not a plot hole though.
The WLFM somehow decides it's a good idea to send a 9-month pregnant woman on a field mission. As expected, she is the only one from the group that gets injured so...the message is that pregnant women should know their place? This game is really confusing in the sense that you don't know if it is feminist or misogynist at its core.
19A) Mel decided to go out herself, the WLF didn’t decide anything. Abby thought she should stay but she didn’t. The WLF gives Mel the freedom to make her own decisions, no matter how dumb they might be, that sounds like freedom/non-misogynist to me. Also, some no name takes a bullet in that fire fight too, not just her. In fact, she treats him briefly before getting stitched up herself.
Not a plot hole but it deserves to be mentioned, Self Insert Neil Druckman is a total loser that tries hard way too hard to hit on Abby ("you can do better") but gets total disrespect from her ("ladies first"). Loving it.
20A) Agreed, not a plot hole. Next.
The Seraphites capture Abby yet they don't kill her right away even though they know for sure how dangerous she is? This is becoming a recurrent thing in this game to the point of absurdity.
21A) The Seaphites are a group of religious wingnuts who ritually kill people by hanging them and then disemboweling them. We saw this a few times in the game. They were dragging Abby’s unconscious body, which was bound up by rope, to do such an execution. Not a plot hole.
For some reason, Owen didn't want to kill an unarmed member of the Seraphites yet somehow he was totally cool with Abbie killing an unarmed Joel who was actually very friendly and trusting towards them. Sure, Neil. Suuuuuuure.
22A) The unarmed Seraphite didn’t do anything wrong as far as we, or Owen, knows. Owen DOES know what Joel did though, and it was inexcusable. Furthermore, Owen in flashbacks, and in the scene where Abby tortures Joel, clearly doesn’t think revenge was a worthwhile endeavor. Pleading with the group to spare Ellie’s and Tommy’s life, as well as telling Abby to hurry up and “finish it” in regards to Joel’s death, even when she tries to pass him the gold club.
Also, Owen killed one of his own who was pressuring him to kill said Seraphite and it is stated that Isaac will send someone to kill him yet this never happens. The very next day, he and Mel are just chilling at their home with the dog and this incident is never mentioned ever again. WTF!!!
23A) Issac said he didn’t care about Owen and that the focus on the invasion was more important, furthermore if word got out on what happened it would lower troop morale. As far as I know Owen never went back to the WLF camp, he stayed in the aquarium from then onwards. It sounds like you’re getting a flashback confused for the modern day story.
The whole Lev subplot is a lame attempt to make Abby sympathetic and a HUGE deviation from the Ellie vs Abby story to the point that it feels like the DLC of the DLC. By Day 2, Tommy and Ellie have already killed part of Abby's Gang of Losers yet we are wasting time helping Lev and Yara.
24A) This is a personal issue, not a plot hole.
Are we really meant to believe that the Seraphites would waste so many resources to hunt and kill Lev? I get they're an extremist religious group but this is the equivalent of a T-Rex chasing humans instead of saving its energy and eating a slower but bigger dinosaur. Why bother at this point? Just let Lev get on with his life and call it a day you idiots!!!!
25A) They sent, what, 10-20 people before Abby had to save them from the mobile home. Every other scene attacking lev is because lev is moving through their territory, they weren’t actively hunting him. Their society is massive, 10-20 hunters isn’t that wild of number, especially given that Levs actions were an insult to their backwards religious views that they clearly hold in very high esteem.
Self Insert Neil Druckman magically appears at the marina by himself because the plot demanded it. Abbie has basically no reaction to his death at the hands of Tommy+ she never brings him up in any future conversation. Good writing, Neil.
26A) Manny had a mission to secure the docks for the invasion but Tommy started picking off members of his squad so he had to pivot objectives. Abby did react to his death, she sat in shock hyperventilating with his blood splattered all over her face. Additionally, After Manny died, she saved lev, and then found Mels and Owens bodies in the aquarium. At this point she found the map Ellie left behind and Abby left to get revenge on Ellie because “you killed my friends”. Seems like she didn’t forget Manny to me.
Abby throws Tommy off the pier but never bothers to double-check to see if he's actually dead.
27A) What was she supposed to do, jump in the stormy ocean after him? Her secondary goal at that point was to get the boat to save Lev.
Bigot Island looks like a badly made copy of M. Night Shyamalan's The Village. Lev somehow was dumb enough to think that his fanatic mom would want to escape with him. I get that he is a teenager but come on, logic does not work on religious fanatics, you dumb idiot.
28A) Shocking. Imagine thinking your mother would actually take the side of her own child than that of a cult that is going to likely punish her for the “sins” of her child. Truly, Lev is a simp. /s
Isaac, despite being a PoC himself, is also a huge bigot that wants to kill Lev because Lev is different. WTF is this game? Also, after he gets shot by the Seraphites, we never hear from the WLF ever again so...they all died at Bigot Island?
29A) Issac wanted to kill Lev because he was a Scar, and the WLF was at war with the Scars. To issac, the only good scar was a dead scar. Presumably, many of them died during the island attack, but the more important reason we don’t hear from the WLF anymore because the only connection we had to the WLF, Abby, had left it.
Tommy gets shot at close range INTO THE BACK HIS SKULL AND TRU HIS EYE!!! HE SHOULD BE DEAD YET SOMEHOW HE LIVES!!!! I could believe it if he got shot sideways so him only losing an eye is understandable but the bullet goes directly to his skull + there's no hospitals nor doctors to operate on him. WHAT THE F...
30A) Gabby Gifford got shot in the head and lived, many people have. It’s all dependent where the bullet enters and exits and at what speed. We don’t know what treatment Tommy got and when he got it after Abby left, any speculation is headcannon. Also Tommy couldn’t walk right either afterwards, it wasn’t just his eye. https://www.livescience.com/amp/9234-survive-bullet-brain.html
Abby spares Ellie, Nose Girl, and Tommy well knowing that they will NEVER stop until she's dead. Why are you so dumb Abby? WHY???
31A) Missed the theme of the story, which is that forgiveness is the only way to end the cycle of violence. Abby spares Ellie the first time but gets revenge, Ellie kills all her fiends and then Abby spares her the second time, and doesn’t even want to fight Ellie the third time. Abby is the bigger person than Ellie. It took Ellie the whole story to learn that revenge won’t retroactively patch up her relationship with Joel, or bring them back, and that the only way to truly move forward was to forgive herself and move on. One cruel act begets another.
A new group of people captures Abby and instead of killing her, they decide to keep her alive because this game was written by complete morons. Why keep prisoners at all and go through the trouble of feeding them + risking an escape and/or a revolt??? WHY???
32A) Because they were using them as slave labor to keep their plantation going. Abby is built like an ox, why wouldn’t you want her as a slave?
Ellie ALSO gets captured by the new group. And of course, they also decide to bring her back to their base instead of just offing her. Why are bad guys so incompetent in ND games?
33A) They didn’t bring her back to her base, she escaped shortly after being cut down, killed the leader, and then snuck into the base on her own and killed a ton of them.
Once Ellie finally has Abby has at her mercy, she totally forsakes the promise she made to make Abby pay because "revenge is bad m'kay"? Trash. Total trash.
34A) Missed the point of the story, see 31A.
Instead of kicking Ellie out or talking things over, Nose Girl abandons the comforts and safety of the Lesbian Farm and denies Ellie the chance of seeing her son ever again. Realistically, Nose Girl, and the baby are dead by now. Thanks, Neil, thanks.
35A) How could she kick Ellie out? She already had left by that point. You can’t run a farm by yourself, it’s ridiculously hard work. We don’t know where Dina went, the best speculation is that she went back to Jackson. Regardless, any speculation is just speculation/headcannon. All we know, is that they abandoned the house and left Ellie’s stuff behind. They moved on, unlike Ellie was able to until the very end of the story.

2020.04.23 02:40 soiledpantiesforsaleHow to Make Money Selling Pictures of Yourself
Learn How to Sell Pictures of Yourself and Earn Easy Money!
How to Make Money Being a Cam Model Yes, some might say that this is quite seedy and it is understandable that most of my girl friends and girls out there would not be interested in this. However, I have been doing this now for 3 years and have plenty of friends that have just started out as well.....once they learnt how much I was earning! Girls selling nude pictures and videos of themselves has become quite popular over that last few years and is continuously becoming more popular. Naked Snapchat pictures have become the basic platform to which girls can make £50 per day. However, there are far more discreet methods out there in which you can earn a huge income. Girls earning £1,000 - £5,000 per week I-CamzIs the highest paying cam modelling site, as top models can earn £5,000 per week working full time. But keep in mind this is not common, as this will be working full time which will be physically and mentally hard on your body, so therefore most models tend not to work full time. An average models earn £1,000 to £2,000 working 20 hours. Some girls can earn £100 a day literally just to chat to guys over a webcam for a couple of hours. I-Camzis a very safe and secure platform were you can even block cities or states to protect your identity! It is a very discreet platform where girls in the UK can give guys in the USA a bit of fun, in return for their hard earned cash. Some of these guys are filthy rich and pay high amounts of cash tips for you doing very little......literally sat on your home sofa with your webcam on in your bra and knickers. As I said before, this is not for everyone and far from the most luxury of jobs, but the income I earn is very appealing and I certainly would never put anyone off doing it, yet quite the opposite. Yet, I must also warn you that there are also men on there with fetishes. For example, men that have feet fetishes and will pay for literally showing your feet on webcam............yes weird I know! So if you where thinking 'where can I sell pictures of feet for money'?.... then your probably also in the right place. For me, this is a short term goal to pay off my mortgage and a few other bits. In another year I can live mortgage free for the rest of my life, literally from a couple of years work, however everyone to their own intentions. In summary, If you are wondering how to make money from working from home and living an easy life, or how to get the finances to start a business or whatever you dream goals are, then I would definitely recommend trialling I-camz and see what opportunities it brings for you.

2020.04.14 03:01 MixxGlobalMediaKaren Elle Fashion Industry Transformation
Many may not know that Karen Elle modeling career started as a baby model for department store Sears and JC Penny. It was something her mother introduced to her life at an early age. From there she modeled on and off as a child model until young adult. Karen Elle was a mid-level model due to her height of 5’8 she did initially regret that she never made it as a runway model but did really well as a commercial print model. She works many campaigns in local and secondary markets and landed a few jobs in Paris and London where her height was not a big deal. She was considered an exotic model because of her unique look. However, the pressures of the industry were taking a toll on her because she knew her career would stay limited and did not see much chance for advancement. Karen decided that she would do much better on the business side of the industry. She started off doing hair and makeup for shoots and runway shows, it was nice at the start. She was the Key or Lead artist on many projects and was advancing quite quickly in the process. However, after working a major fashion show internationally for Ocean Style Magazine she enjoyed the production side and decided to try her hand in that. She became a production assistant and worked many productions with major networks such as BET, MTV, and CBS. She wore many hats because she filled in where the need was great from helping with castings to fittings and run of the show. She learned so much working behind the scenes with agents, casting directors, producers, and creative directors. Working as a Production Assistant helped Karen build amazing industry contacts and also helped her narrow down exactly what she wanted to focus on in her professional career in the industry. She learned a lot and was giving other models advice on her to get started and make connections. She had an eye for talent and was connecting many of them with agents and talent scouts. Until one day Karen Lee a major agent she worked with at Elite New York told her she should scout and developed models professionally. Karen never thought about making it a business, she decided to interview other agents and advertisement companies to see what they expected from her and models that she would recommend to them. Yes, she went directly to the source and created The Karen Elle Project a scout and development program to open the doors properly to model hopefuls. She was more than qualified considering she modeled herself and worked years behind the scenes wearing many hats. As a mother agent or scout, she helped hundreds of models network get signed to agency and land many campaigns. It was very fulling to see others get to the next level. In addition to being a mother agent, Karen would still work major productions such as Victoria’s Secret and BET Rip the Runway shows, to stay connected and relevant to other industry professionals. It was always a good way to plug the models she was working with directly to industry professionals which keep The Karen Elle Project highly successful. The Karen Elle Project became a highly recommended source for models getting started. However, Karen felt that she wanted to explore more of her creative side and embarked on a new journey of becoming an official creative director. She was working independently as one on certain projects with designers getting started and magazines in New York. It was fun because she felt she had the best of both worlds. She could book models and a creative team for clients while helping with the creative expression. Being a creative director was equally fulfilling as helping models get signed to agencies. Needless to say, trying to juggle both being a mother agent and creative director had a new set of challenges. Karen knew she needed to expand operations and build a team. In 2017 the Karen Elle Project became privately shared and expanded to ten cities nationally and internationally. Now, with a major team, she was able to expand the talent division and have a creative division where she could focus on being an executive creative director. Her company employs over 200 people worldwide and worked with 1000’s of models. The fashion industry will always have Karen Elle’s heart, her spirit has always lead her to help and motivate others to be true to their talents and dreams. She always sees people's true potential and loves to inspire others through her motivational speaking engagements to starting transformational self-love retreats for young girls and teens. Karen Elle’s desire to transform herself through the fashion and entertainment industry has truly paid off and she looks to more growth in the near future.

2020.03.29 18:20 TheNormalAlternative~ QUARANTINE CABARET ~ Upcoming Live-Streaming performances (mostly indie rock) - Three Day Outlook Updated Daily!
THIS POST WILL NO LONGER BE UPDATED AS OF 4/18
There are no concerts for the foreseeable future, so some artists are resorting to performing live via YouTube, Instagram, Twitch, etc. I'm doing my best to assemble a continuously updated list of live-streamed performances by indie and alternative rock artists as this quarantine wears on to help you find ways to keep sane. I recommend setting up some mood lighting with whatever you have (I use an app on my cell phone and still-up x-mas lights blinking at random) for a basic DIY dance party. Since most live streams are announced only a day or two before they air, I'm just going limit this post to a three-day outlook, but I'll be updating it regularly. I'm also collecting livestreams that are recorded (e.g., YouTube and Facebook) and available to restream later in the comments. Feel free to share additional rock and rock-adjacent live-streams, listening parties and band hangouts in the comments. (ALL TIMES EASTERN STANDARD TIME. ALL SHOWS FREE UNLESS NOTED OTHERWISE) THURSDAY APRIL 16
Global Citizen Festival at Home feat. Alanis Morissette, Billy Joel Armstrong, Coldplay, Eddie Vedder, John Legend, The Killers, Kacey Musgraves, Lada Gaga, Lizzo, Paul McCartney, The Rolling Stones, Stevie Wonder and more (8:00 pm) (\NOTE\** THIS WILL BE AIRING ON MOST MAJOR TV NETWORKS & DIGITAL OUTLETS)
2020.03.27 16:42 claytimeyesyesyesI’m 30 years old, live in Brooklyn, and make $135k as the Head of Investor Relations
Section One: Assets and Debt
Basic Info: I’m 30 years old, live in Brooklyn, and make $135k as the Head of Investor Relations. Not too much has changed since my diary in October, but I’m in the beginning phases of buying a condo! I’m keeping meticulous track of my experience and purchasing expenses, and I’ll share those once the whole process is over. Retirement Balance (and how you got there):$173,871.44 This has changed a fair bit since my diary in October. First, I’m in the process of rolling my former company’s 401k into an IRA then to my current company’s 401k. (It’s frustrating and complicated). Also, the COVID-19 virus hit the markets, so I've had some losses. Woohoo!
Betterment Traditional IRA: $119,293.69 (this was the balance from my former firm’s 401k; ~$100k of this will be moved to my current Firm’s 401k)
Betterment Roth IRA: $4,981.25 (This is all of the Roth money from my former company’s 401k; this stays put)
Current Firm’s 401k: $5,063.17
Current Firm’s 401k Match: $37,200 as of December 31, 2019. Turns out the “match” my company provides to my 401k is actually money invested in the Firm’s master fund. I’m okay with this for now, but I want more details as to how I access this money. I don’t receive regular statements for this account.
Current Firm’s Pension: $22,000 as of December 31, 2019, of which $7,333.33 is vested. I don’t receive regular statements and we have a 3-year vesting schedule.
Equity: I was so pessimistic in October! I’m in the process of buying a condo right now. Soon! Here’s the down payment plan, and I’m 100% sure I’ll get some serious criticism for this:
Initially, my plan was to take a $50,000 loan against my current company’s 401k + $5k from savings; however, the money movements between accounts have been too slow, as my contract is moving relatively quickly in spite of the scary markets. SO!
Now, I’m using the majority of my savings below (~$35k) + an $18k cash advance (0% APR until June 2021) against my Bank of America card. The remaining $2k is a cash advance from my Chase Freedom card (similarly 0% APR for 6 months).
Both credit cards will be paid back as soon as I get the loan out from my 401k
I decided on the 401k loan for a few reasons:
1) the majority of this money was in my old firm’s 401k account, which was preventing me from transferring the money into my current company’s 401k - as I was no longer an employee, there were extremely limited options for that pool of money;
2) the market swings are not my favorite thing and I wanted to diversify my exposure; and,
3) I’m confident that I’ll continue making money at a steady rate and my current firm’s contribution rate is extremely generous
I’m setting aside $20k of the $50k for closing costs
The balance of the $50k (~$10k) will be used to top off the funds that I withdrew from
Ultimately, the property is just too good to pass up. It’s in the exact same neighborhood, the price is a steal, I could make a 10% down payment and get very favorable mortgage terms. I never thought I’d be able to own property in NYC but I'm on my way! Savings/investment account balance:
Back Up Savings: $5,100.03 ($100/week automatic deposit)
Emergency Savings: $20,002.63 (top up with extra funds when available) - This is turning into the account I’m keeping all of down payment money.
Betterment High Yield Savings: $3,239.06 ($100/bi weekly automatic deposit) - But pending a withdrawal of $2,139.06 for down payment money.
Betterment SRI Investment Account: $1,612.89 ($100/month automatic deposit) - I just made a withdrawal for more down payment money.
Checking account balance: Currently $2,885.41, and I still try to maintain a balance above $2k for no reason other than I’m paranoid. Since I only get paid once a month, I deposit my full paycheck into my back up fund and transfer to my checking account as needed. Credit card debt: I (now, lol) pay off my credit cards monthly. I currently have four: Chase Freedom, BofA Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, and Nordstrom. I really only use Chase and BofA regularly. Student loan debt (for what degree): I have $39,349.83 left. I just refinanced this from a 7.65% interest rate to a 3.92% interest rate with Earnest and now pay $450/mo. I’m pretty happy with this so far! I don’t have any pre-pay penalties, so I’ll continue to throw all my spare cash at this. Car: N/A - I never learned to drive and I live in the city. Public transportation is awesome.
Section Two: Income
Total Income: $135k base salary, plus a discretionary annual cash bonus + company pension contribution + 401k “matching.” I don’t know what the payout will look like this year - it really depends on how the rest of the year looks. Main Job Take Home Pay:~$6200 1x/mo Additional income/side hustle: I had a pretty serious depressive episode over the winter, so I’m just now getting back into ceramics again. I’ve also closed my Patreon until I build up stock.
Section Three: Expenses
Health Insurance: $160 (I opted for the “better” plan because of some scary health issues last year)
Vision Insurance: $8.45
Healthcare FSA: $13
Transit Card: $128 (this is my favorite thing; it covers a monthly unlimited metrocard!)
Home: ~$1,700 per month (This is going to change pretty dramatically once I move into my new condo!)
Rent: ~$1,000; I share a 2b2 bath apartment in Brooklyn with my friend B and his girlfriend A (they have the master) and the total rent is $3350, which includes gas and water.
Renter’s Insurance: $200 annually. I pay in a lump sum at the beginning of the year.
Electric: Varies; usually between $200-300, depending on the month. This month was $225. I take care of this bill, B takes care of the internet bill.
Groceries: Varies; I feed only myself (A and B are vegetarian), so I spend maybe $200-300/mo on groceries? I spent $262 in February.
Pet food: $45 once a month for wet food with an additional $55 every other month for dry + a pallet of additional smaller cans (why do cans come in pallets of 24??). B takes care of cat litter.
Pet Insurance: $254 for orange cat (D) per year, $316 for loud baby cat (C) per year; I pay quarterly for both cats, even though D is more of B’s cat. He takes care of D’s vet bills, and I take care of C’s.
AT&T: $66; I apparently get some sort of reimbursement from work for this, but it happens kind of randomly.
Subscriptions & Memberships: ~$290 per month
Amazon Prime: $119 per year; I pay annually
Netflix: $12.99 (my streaming accounts are all linked to the PS4 in the living room, so I share with my roommates but don’t ask them to contribute anything. It all works out)
Hulu Live: $60.99 (now on PS4, y’all!)
HBO on Prime: $14.99 (I dropped Starz)
NYT Digital: $25.77
Ceramic Studio Membership: $225 per month, plus additional firing fees at $0.03 per cubic inch (for example, a mug usually costs about $1.50-$2 to fire twice; once for bisque, once for glaze, so ~$4 for a finished mug)
Health: $1,090 per month
Fitness: $13 for Peloton digital
Therapy: $250 per session, I usually go every week so the monthly bill is ~$1k; 70% of this gets reimbursed from my health insurance, but I have to pay up front.
Medicine: $70/mo for a cocktail of antidepressants
Headspace: $99 for the year
Misc. Expenses: $208 per month
Charity: $50 to ASPCA (adopt!!), $50 to Planned Parenthood, $25 to the SPLC, $25 to to the National Network of Abortion Funds, $25 to the Organization of Transformative Works; I also like to make larger donations at the end of the year to these organizations and a few others (Doctors without Borders, ACLU, etc.)
Patreon: $28 (I support 6 creators here)
Ko-Fi: $5 (I support 1 creator here)
Day 1 - Monday March 16, 2020 6:15AM - Good morning! Just kidding, why am I awake? I woke up around 3AM again, too. I roll over and try to go back to sleep. 7:15AM - I give up, dig my Kindle out from under my pillow and read Chuck Wendig’s The Wanderers until my actual alarm. 8:20AM - My alarm goes off. This is my third day of working from home thanks to COVID-19. I take my meds and put my contacts in for the 8:30AM (virtual!) team meeting. My firm spent a lot of time developing and testing a remote desktop, and they’ve added in video capabilities. Unfortunately, this means I have to have my webcam on all day (!), to be seen on the “virtual trading floor.” Super invasive! 9:02AM - Morning meeting finally over. I order a sausage egg and cheese bagel sandwich, dry bagels, and some scallion cream cheese for breakfast today and the rest of the week ($25.64, including $5 delivery tip). I’m still trying to get into a routine for working from home and breakfast is, I’m learning, essential. I’ll make my own coffee though. I ran out of turbinado so I’m using agave syrup and I don’t hate it? 9:34AM - Bagel sandwich time mmmmmmmm 9:36AM - Bagel sandwich is missing cheese :( 10:28AM - Finished a draft of our monthly commentary and shoot it off to our trader, who usually drafts these things. We had our quarterly client call last week, so I cobbled together something from my notes. I hope that I didn’t get anything too inaccurate! I have zero background in finance, so I feel like a big ol’ faker when I talk markets. 10:30AM - My loan officer calls! I got a letter at the end of last week saying that the bank didn’t have any loan options for me - YIKES! My loan officer cleared that up (a mistake on his end), and let me know he was going to provide new rates given that the Fed dropped rates again (we’re essentially at zero, people!). I’m curious to see what he comes back with and proceed to refresh my email incessantly. 11:13AM - Love watching my coworkers eat on the spy cam. 11:44AM - After a flurry of emails this morning, work has slowed down. I think I’m going to nap on my lunch break. 11:58AM - C (loud baby cat) rouses from her nap on the sofa to make an appearance on the virtual trading floor (she stands in front of my webcam). I move her to my lap so I can actually see my screen. Nobody seems to have noticed I temporarily turned into a cat. 12:20PM - Turn off my spy cam to lie down for a nap. The morning bagel sandwich hasn’t sat well with me. C comes to join me, but since she doesn’t normally sleep in bed with me, she doesn’t know where to settle. First, she gets under the covers and spoons my butt with her cold, wet nose pressed against my lower back. Eventually, she makes it up to my chest as a little spoon, under one of my arms. So cute!! 1:30PM - Wake up and back to work. 2:19PM - BORED. I try to do some pecking at my novel project that I’m preparing for Camp NaNoWriMo. Every time I do this, I lose confidence in my story… 2:30PM - Still feeling queasy, so I have a small bowl of cereal in an attempt to soothe my stomach. The latest switch up in my antidepressant regime has resulted in poor sleep and lots of nausea. On the other hand, I feel LOADS better mentally. I’m hoping the nausea will get better with time… 3:00PM - I buy a $40 unlimited monthly pass for digital classes at my yoga studio. I’ve been meaning to pick this up again, so I’ll start virtually! I book a Tuesday class. 4:16PM - The real trap of social distancing is that I’m more and more tempted to shop online. I close some open tabs. 6:28PM - Of course the last hour of my day gets stupidly busy. I finally get to sign off the spy cam! 7:00PM - I make a farro bowl for dinner. It includes: sauteed kale, half an avocado, and a softish boiled egg (I left it in too long…). I top it with this really awesome tahini dressing I whipped up based on a NYT recipe. I am suddenly RAVENOUS and I scarf it down while watching the second half of Westworld season 2, episode 1. I know, I’m late. But I was depressed, ok? 7:30PM - My loan officer sends me a homebuyer course to get $500 of credits from the bank. Sure! I zip through it (I already know basically all of these things), and email my loan officer the certificate of completion a little before 8PM. 8:00PM - I play a couple of rounds of Overwatch. 8:55PM - I make my usual cup of sleepy tea and watch another episode of Westworld. 10:30PM - Bed time. I put on a soundscape from Headspace and drift off to sleep. Day 1 Spend: $65.64 DAY 2 - Tuesday March 17, 2020 2:00AM - Why? 4:30AM - Please. 8:20AM - Last alarm goes off. I roll out of bed for the morning team meeting. My butt feels bruised from sitting all day yesterday. 10:46AM - Off of my morning client call. I make some coffee and toast a bagel from yesterday. I realize they sent me plain bagels :( At least I have scallion cream cheese. C joins me for breakfast, trying very hard to be as on top of me as possible. 12:00PM - Weirdly busy morning. Lots of client calls and requests - everyone’s freaked out about the market! I take some time to check the money movements I have in process. It looks like my 401k transfer from my old firm’s platform has made it over to Betterment. Neat! Now I have to figure out how to get the Traditional IRA from Betterment over to my new firm’s 401k. 12:30PM - I decide to do a 30 minute low impact ride with Peloton digital. I like the low impact rides - my lungs can barely handle cardio, but I’m working on it. However, 10 minutes into my ride, the building’s super comes in to let me know they’re going to clean the gym in 10-15 minutes. I eke out another 10 minutes before I’m kicked out. Also, I realized my butt is just saddle sore from Sunday’s ride lmao. On my way back up to my apartment, I grab my new monitors from the package room. My company offered reimbursements for certain home office equipment, and I’ve been meaning to upgrade my set up. 1:43PM - After a quick body shower, half a liter of water, and an apple, I’m back at my desk with my spy cam on. 3:33PM - Get off yet another client call and pour myself a bowl of cereal. There’s rumors of a full shut down of NYC in 48 hours, so I’m making a last minute grocery list to round out my fridge/pantry. I really didn’t want to spend money today! 4:40PM - Finished typing and circulating my notes. It looks like it might be a shelter-in-place thing and not a full shut down thing. I’ll hold off on panic buying; I have enough food at home. 5:10PM - Oh, my yoga got cancelled :( 6:05PM - Finally log off! 6:30PM - Since yoga was cancelled, I’m making a really healthy dinner of pan seared brussels, spinach tortellini in my quickie alfredo sauce (basically a splash of cream and a lot of cheese), and a very large glass of red wine. I eat while watching Below Deck: Sailing Yacht. 7:45PM - I hop onto Overwatch for a couple of rounds. I bring a pint of Half Baked with me too. 8:30PM - After six PotGs in a row, I feel like I should let other people play the game. I put away the ice cream (I ate maybe a third?), and make a cup of sleepy tea. I turn on Before the 90 Days. On one hand, these people make me feel better about my life. On the other hand, I’m jealous that they’ve (sometimes) found people who love them?? How do romance? 9:43PM - Omg!!! I finally grew a 5-star plant in Plant Daddy!!! I love him!!! 10:30PM - Brush teeth, night time routine, in bed and reading The Wanderers. Day 2 Spend: $0! Day 3 - Wednesday March 18, 2020 6:00AM - Nope. Although, this is better than usual. 7:00AM - Still nope. 8:00AM - I give up. Lie and bed and scroll Instagram for a bit. I manage to get up and make coffee before the 8:30AM meeting! 9:45AM - After the morning meeting and formatting our monthly report (including nudging those who have ignored my commentary draft), I get up to toast a bagel. C and D are sleeping on the job (aka napping in the morning sunlight). 10:57AM - Come up for air again. Looks like the last bits of down payment monies have hit my account. Not that my contract is anywhere in sight, but I can breathe easy. 11:43AM - I spent half an hour reorganizing my bookmarks. 12:26PM - My 12:00 call got pushed to 3PM so I spend some time getting paperwork together for my IRA transfer. I want to overnight these docs, but I don’t know if the post office or UPS is open at the moment… I want a nap. 12:31PM - Okay, yeah, lunch break nap. 1:45PM - I’m awake. I think I sort of slept? I wander into the kitchen to find something to eat but nothing sounds appetizing. My new antidepressants are really messing with my appetite. I settle on a lemon flavored Noosa yogurt, which I eat half of. 2:26PM - I make a cup of green tea. The last part of my day is back to back calls. I am not ready. 3:26PM - Got through my first call but oh man, I am super nauseous from the green tea. I need to lie down. But more calls await. 5:53PM - Nearly threw up during my last call… One more call and then I can lie down again. Ugh! 6:17PM - My 6PM call is running late. Please let me sign off work. 6:50PM - I get off my call and log off work finally. I go to the kitchen for something to eat, but instead I end up having a very tough conversation with my roommate B. He’s really hurt by my decision to buy a condo and we talk about it. He leaves with A for a walk and I go cry in my room. 8:00PM - I eat dinner at some point (farro, soft boiled egg, half an avocado, and that tahini sauce again). My best friend E convinces me to play some Overwatch. It’s our favorite event, with our favorite game mode, so I agree, even though I’m still feeling pretty shitty. 9:00PM - Stop playing Overwatch. Go back to crying. 10:00PM - Well, I lost an hour. Guess it’s time for bed. Day 3 Spend: $0! Day 4 - Thursday, March 19, 2020 4:25AM - Why. 8:26AM - Drag myself out of bed for the morning meeting. 9:17AM - I get a note from Amazon that my copy of Animal Crossing: New Horizons is going to be delayed. I cancel the physical copy and buy the digital copy ($64.54, though the original one will be reimbursed). I make a cup of coffee and a bagel and sit down in front of my computer. C follows me around while I putz in the kitchen. 9:30AM - I throw $20 to the Plant Daddy developer. 10:30AM - Virtual therapy appointment time. This will be $250 (noted in the Health section in my expenses above). 11:15AM - Therapy over. I wash my face before getting back on the spy cam. We talked about my conversation with my roommate last night, and I feel a bit better. Back to work. 11:45AM - Go down to the package room to grab my Girl Scout cookies (1 box of Thin Mints, 2 boxes of shortbread, 1 box of Lemonades and 1 box of S’mores). More work, even though my day is much less busy than yesterday. 12:30PM - I’m going to venture out, mostly for sanity reasons, but also because I need groceries. I drop off packages at the post office, which include two donation boxes to thredUP, two mugs I threw for my uncle, and some papers to get my IRA transferred ($34.95). Everyone is standing 6ft apart and I appreciate that. Next, I head to the corner grocery store. It’s pretty ravaged. I pick up a variety of fresh vegetables, eggs, cereal, Cheez-its (an essential), chicken cutlets, and two different kinds of cider ($84.32). Oof. 1:48PM - Back at home, back on my spy cam. 3:30PM - Realized I haven’t eaten lunch so I wander into the kitchen to find something to eat. I end up with a bowl of cereal, which I now realize is actually granola. I chat with A for a bit, which is nice. Then I’m back in front of my spy cam with a bowl of Cheez-its. 6:00PM - The rest of the day was just working - people finally started paying attention to my requests to review the reporting I’ve been working on all week. I sign off a quarter after six, annoyed. 6:30PM - I feed the cats and start making dinner. I bread two of the chicken cutlets in a mix of panko and romano before I pan fry them. I scoop some of the farro into a bowl and dress it with the tahini sauce. I take both back to my room with a rose cider I bought earlier. I take a bite of chicken and can tell immediately I undercooked it. I have such a Thing with chicken - I don’t know why I even bothered trying to cook it. I take it back into the kitchen to cook it through, but I’m pretty squicked out. The farro is also really bad plain like this. I watch 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days while I eat. 7:20PM - After I eat, I start assembling the ingredients for Hokkaido milk bread. I think I ruin the tangzhong! My dough is definitely too dry. I add a little more milk and cream and hope for the best. Stash the dough in the fridge for a slow overnight rise. 8:00PM - I grab another rose cider and hop onto Overwatch for a few rounds. I get an amazing PotG as Ana and I’m pleased as punch. 9:00PM - Go down to the package room to pick up an order from Ann Taylor - a bunch of work shirts. I love them all (polka dots, leopard print, poppies, and a striped shirt) and immediately hang them in my closet. Maybe I’ll wear one tomorrow to feel more like I’m actually Working? 9:15PM - Shit! I forgot about yoga at 7!! 9:45PM - I eat two Lemonades out of my Girl Scout delivery. Make a cup of sleepy tea and finish watching the College Behind Bars documentary series on Netflix. 10:30PM - Ugh, it’s late. I dawdle through my nighttime routine even though I’m bone tired. I should’ve washed my hair earlier. The fact that I have to work tomorrow feels cruel. Day 4 Spend: $203.81 (yikes) Day 5 - Friday, March 20, 2020 1:25AM - Hm. 8:00AM - This is better! I actually slept okay last night. I wake up in the middle of a dream that somehow combines my ceramic studio, one of my clients, and historical cosplay (?). I doze until my 8:20AM alarm and then get up for the morning meeting. 10:45AM - Um. I might have been playing the new Animal Crossing all morning. I did do some actual work before I started playing, though, honest! I’m hungry so I get up to make some coffee and pour a bowl of granola. I check on the dough in the fridge and it’s not looking great. At least I got paid today! 12:30PM - I lie down for a nap, but I forgot to mute the “trade floor,” so my boss's dulcet tones wake me up about 20 minutes later. I give up, scroll instagram for a bit, then decide to get up and make lunch. I have a pie shell in the freezer so I decide to make a quiche! It’s so simple: four eggs, one cup of milk/cream/half and half, your choice of cheese, then whatever veg you want to throw into it. I make a broccoli, prosciutto and cheese (romano/parm/mild cheddagruyere) quiche. While it’s cooking, I check on my dough again. I think I have to trash it. 2:00PM - I have a call with my attorney for the condo. Still no closing date; in fact, because of the total shut down of NYC, construction is probably halted for the time being. My lawyer thinks we might close at the end of summer, but warned that it could go longer, depending on how long the COVID-19 impact lasts. I’m actually okay with this since it’ll give me time to save up more and pay down more. 2:30PM - Back in front of my desk, playing Animal Crossing and answering emails as they come up. 3:00PM - Another client call. 7:40PM - The rest of the afternoon (and much of the evening!) was waiting for people to provide commentary on the markets for the week and reporting for one of our big clients. I got the commentary out a little after 6:30PM but I wait nearly another hour for the reports for this client. I get up and make dinner while I’m waiting - I make fried rice but with farro instead. It’s really good! I trash the bread dough :( I also crack open a rose cider. I need it. 11:30PM - ...I spent the rest of the night playing Animal Crossing. Good night! Day 5 Spend: $0! Day 6 - Saturday March 21, 2020 2:00AM - Okay, cool. 6:00AM - No. 8:30AM - I’ve been tossing and turning for two hours. I get up to get my Switch and turn on Animal Crossing. 12:30PM - I am limited by my console’s battery. I make some coffee and head back into my room. 1:00PM - Thinking of taking up knitting? I end up placing an order from We Are Knitters for a beginner kit ($63). Maybe it’ll get here before the quarantine is over… I also buy myself a gift card for my ceramics studio, which has been forced to close ($108.15). I want them to stay in business!! 2:30PM - I’ve been playing Animal Crossing, but pause to make some noodles with that cheesy sauce again. I let my Switch charge while I eat. 4:30PM - I’m sleepy. I lie down for a nap, but my abuela calls. I have to answer because I’ve… been avoiding talking to her. Fortunately I can distract her with the news about my condo purchase endeavor. 6:10PM - My mom calls me. I don’t think I mentioned that my parents flew across the country in the middle of the week to see my sister? Yeah, worst idea ever. Now my mom is concerned about COVID-19 and is planning on flying back to California early, just in time for a full shelter-in-place order. I assure her I’m fine and don’t know anybody who’s gotten the virus. She sounds stressed, but I think that has more to do with dealing with my dad and my sister than anything. I tell her to travel safe and call if she needs anything. 6:20PM - While eating Cheez-its, I realize I should probably eat real dinner. I place an order with my favorite neighborhood Thai place ($23.14), because not only do I want them to stay in business, but apparently I need to spend more money today. 6:40 - Thai food is here! I eat the spring rolls with a cider, but I sort of ruined my appetite with the Cheez-its. Whoops. At least I’ll have leftovers! 7:11PM - My dad calls. I guess I’ll talk to every family member today! He tells me about how he finally got his insulin - but had to go to Mexico to get it. I think he’s said before that a week’s supply of one of the types of insulin he takes was something like $450, or $3000 for a three month supply - and, yeah, he has insurance. He managed to get a month of all his medications for $350 in Tijuana. Oy!! We also gush about Animal Crossing. My dad’s delighted. He wants to visit my island when he’s back in California. I tell him to travel safe and to not touch anything. 10:54PM - Uhh, yeah, I’ve been playing more Animal Crossing. I paid off my home loan! Love a game where I can accomplish what I can’t in real life. I remember that I’m out of coffee. I place an order from Blue Bottle ($39) in hopes that this will get to me early next week. I put away my Switch and make some sleepy tea. Day 6 Spend: $233.29 Day 7 - March 22, 2020 4:00AM - Please! 5:00AM - No!! 9:30AM - 30 more minutes… 1:03PM - Um. Oops. Time to get out of bed? 5:02PM - I basically played Animal Crossing all afternoon. Seriously, this game couldn’t have come at a better time. But I should also, like, do something. I go downstairs for a 30 minute ride with Peloton. I’m seriously contemplating a Peloton bike when I move into my own place, but we’ll see about that. 5:45PM - After a body shower, I change my sheets and… go back to playing Animal Crossing. I’m so sorry. That’s what I do for the rest of the night too. Day 7 Spend: $0! Weekly Total: $502.74 Reflection Um, oof?? Despite a few zero spend days, I managed to spend more than I usually do in a week. To be fair, usually I wouldn’t be buying a gift card to my ceramics studio or spend this much on video games (I’m normally slow to adopt a new game), but I think I definitely over spent on food this week. What I have in the fridge should last me through the next week as well, so hopefully I’ll spend less in the coming days. (update: I've so far only spent $20 since Sunday! Go me!) Honestly, I thought I’d have some more condo expenses this week, but COVID-19 really slowed the process down (understandably!). Since my close date has been pushed out to the end of summer, I’ve got more time to save my pennies and pay myself back from all my money manipulations. The hardest thing about this week was not really having the option to go out and about. I kind of miss my commute?! My venture to the post office and grocery story felt illegal. I’m definitely feeling increasingly restless/anxious/isolated, so any tips you might have to cope would be appreciated! Stay safe and healthy out there!
2020.03.25 04:52 CandyCaneQueenzHe deleted a reddit post after talking about cosplay. I dont have screenshots but a sumup of the convo
I dont have screenshots but this was basically the dialog Onion fake fan account: Chris Hansen looks so ugly in his suit Me: No he doesnt. A lot of his clothing is ill fitted while Chris Hansen's suit is obviously well fitted. People like guys in suits, because not only does it show class but wealth as well. Why do you think Christian Grey got people riled up? Onion fake account: Onisoon has worn a suit, look at his sexy joker costume! Me: it's still very ill fitted and a lot of the photos are heavily filtered from what I see on google. Not only that but the way be postured himself looks very off and not a joker style. He comes off as a edgelord trying to be cool. Onsion: WELL HIS COSPLAY OF L FROM DEATH NOTE IS SPOT ON, and all the girls love L Me: well, i mean.. it's a beginners version of cosplay. You can't call youreself a professional, and all the girls who like L are under 15. I've been to comic con NYC and I am a cosplayer myself (btw i am very new still). My first cosplay was rattman from portal, and my companion cube looks like absolute shit. My second was SCP 049, and im currently working on the girl from thw things we carry. I am happy he is taking interest in cosplay but the equivalence of L from death note is a TF2 scout cosplay, which is totally fine but its an introductory cosplay. I can show you mine to help you understand Then he deleted the post lmao

Most people don't get what feminism is. `Feminism is *not* \"advocacy for women.\" Feminism is not women's rights activism exclusively, though that can spring forward from feminist thought. And feminism is not \"defend the woman in all situations.\"` Feminism from its outset was merely the study of looking at the world and existing forms of study from an oft-neglected feminine point of view. For example: heart attack symptoms are always listed as \"chest pain, pain in left arm, etc,\" but those are predominately *male* symptoms. *Female* symptoms of heart attack are often mistaken for heartburn and indigestion. Men can also mistake heart attacks for these things, because they have no idea those *could* be symptoms. We've known this for a long time, but rarely make a conscious effort to hold the feminine side of the issue in equal standing to the masculine side. Most men feel the prior symptoms, so that's what we tell everyone to watch out for. `This applies to all fields of study, from medicine and science to politics, art and literature. In the case of politics, feminism is the recognition that our past and present are preeminently patriarchal, and that gender roles and expectations are placed on *both* sexes by that patriarchal tradition.` Feminism challenges those assumptions by approaching them from the opposite direction--assumptions affecting *both* sexes, not just the female sex. This includes expectations that fathers are to be distant to their children, always working while the mother provides the emotional support. It includes the expectation that men do not show their emotions, and express themselves through violence, conflict and posturing. The list goes on. Feminism holds that these are *unfair expectations,* the same as it's unfair to expect a woman to get married, have children, and be the stay-at-home mother at the cost of her aspirations. `In point of fact, if the \"mens rights activists\" were sincere in their concerns, they would be feminists in the academic sense, because just about every real issue on their list (paternity rights, military conscription, etc.) has already been studied and explored by feminist academia for decades, and feminist scholars have come to precisely the same conclusions--that enforced male gender roles are unfair to men. It's the \"MRA's\" assumption that there is a cabal of powerful women conspiring to discriminate against men that is incorrect--the true culprit behind their complaints being the same patriarchal tradition that feminism challenges.` posted by lankist on /MurderedByWords Click here to view the post. ● 373 Upvotes ● 2 reward(s). ● 1 silver reward(s), 1 gold reward(s) and 0 platinum reward(s) ● Posted: 08/03/2020 at 16:19:06 UTC
