2023.06.09 07:29 solipcism Can't believe what happen
I am in my thirties, I have a quiet temperament, have a competitive job with high salaries and ten years of successful career, I am well-read, I am an idealist, I like philosophy, poetry, I did lots of efforts to work myself up to a very good life and financial situation, I had in the past five beautiful relationships with respectful, well-educated men, we discussed books and life together, the shortest of those relations remained for six months and I never had sex apart from those.
When I moved to a new town, I felt extremely isolated. I have cut all ties with my family for ten years because of an history of problems, and friends in old town where now at some distance. I joined a sports club which soon became my new home, I didn't especially integrate myself well with the group, mostly older people, reticent to new comers, in a conservative region where an independent woman in her thirties is suspicious. Nevertheless I enjoyed every moment practicing my favorite sport, and finding a community of reassuring, known faces.
After six months, I meet him at the club. He was older, I didn't know his age, he was alluring, appreciated by everyone, extremely successful, we had a few conversations, I was interested in getting to know him, without any a priori about the nature of future relation, which could have been friendship or romance. He started having a flirting attitude, he looked at me all the time, I felt desired as I never felt before. I suggested meeting at a coffee place in town, he accepted the appointment, but once there, he acted strangely: I had been thinking about him and anticipating our appointment all day, he was waiting for me on the street and immediately said he has not going to stay or have a coffee because he has an appointment with his lawyer, I was very confused, why accept the appointment but then refuse to talk, he was slightly laughing at me, made a few crude comments and seemed to enjoy my confusion, I had the impression he was taking pictures or recording my voice. He asked me if I like to make sports with older people, and other strange questions, I answered awkwardly. I was devastated, but I thought I had misunderstood, I tried to forget about it.
A few days later, at the club, the exact same game continues. He is grandiose, he flirts with me and I am in love with him again. I imagine I got the interpretation of our failed date wrong, and this was just a matter of time before we are together. It continued over the next days and weeks, I was sure I had found the man I would spend my life with.
Quickly, I started to spot strange patterns, each time I spoke or "made our sport activity" together with someone, he would talk to this person and this person would then avoid me, or I could feel from their attitude and words that he had said something depreciative about me. When he was in presence of others, and I tried to approach him, he took impressive poses but refused to talk and I had the impression he made fun of me with the others, or told them something about me. Other times, insults, he played as if I am pursuing or harassing him. I wrote him a few respectful messages, in a literary style, where I express my feelings and describe what I observe from his behavior. I tried to rationalize his behavior as a lack of dating experience since he was married for a long time before divorce. I enjoyed his presence like heaven on earth, everyday was a joy, I neglected my work, I had never loved so much. At the same time, I accumulated proofs of his spreading lies, isolating me, insulting me, laughing at me. Leitmotiv of his defamation was that I had a dissolute life, with no moral, and looked for sex with older men. I thought he was thinking bad of me indeed and tried my best during several months to prove him wrong: I wanted to reach him and have a discussion with him where I could tell about my life and make him understand I am not the person he thinks.
I was fully isolated at the club. People I met had reactions, laughing at me, not taking me seriously or ostensibly hostile, which confirmed my bad feelings, that he had infused lies about me, in which extent I don't know, in the whole population. I spent entire days at the club during a whole season to be in his vicinity. He spent entire days looking at me at some distance. Anytime I looked around he was there, at a location where he could observe me. I had the impression he sometimes took pictures with his smartphone. Flirting attitude, yet avoidance, and this impression he is spreading lies, insult, and denigrate me as much as he can. Impossible to approach him and rehabilitate myself in his opinion. I was suffering intensely from a behavior I could not understand. I had no more energy.
I left the club during a few months, to recover from this love. I blamed myself for misunderstanding. I forgot about him, met him a few times at the club and found him changed: older, not so handsome, aggressive, we just saw each other from far away, I didn't offer him any attention. I planed to leave the town to forget about this. Before leaving, I wanted to spend a bit of time at the club, I thought I could put him at some distance and since he played like I am harassing him with my solicitations, he would be happy to see I am no more interested. When I saw him, I realized I was still under charm. He played grandiose. I ignored him nevertheless. He was insulting, crude, sexists remarks with other men, laughing, etc. I disappeared again for one month and sent a note which was a bit of a provocation, which could be interpreted as "I miss you badly" or "I am fed up with your behavior". When I am back, I don't give him any attention. After five days, the incident happened.
It was in presence of several other people I know well. He had been telling them some lie just before I meet the group, something like, "she is harassing me", something which could justify his aggressive behavior. I didn't say hello as usual and he suddenly, aggressively approached me, pinching his lip and taking an aggressive, vicious face, as if saying "is this what you want?". I was scared. He had a lot of perfume but I think there was more than that, something like spray, aphrodisiac or hormone substance. I had a reaction I didn't want to have, I felt both nausea and strong excitement, which showed on my face, in front of the others. He left and back a few minutes after, he stared at me with vicious eyes, he was enraged and excited and asked in front of everyone "do you want this?". I felt wrong and humiliated, I said nothing. I did the sport session. When back, he had been waiting for me. I saw him taking film or pictures of me, in a position where I could not react. He looked enraged, a old man, with a disgusting face, full of rage. He made crude comment to a woman, he had being telling her something like "he was going to have me if this is what I wanted" and that "he would clean the club from this". I was confused, terrified, still numbed by nausea from the product or perfume he used. I left. This had being shocking and humiliating. The day after, I avoided the time of his training. Yet I crossed his path, and he played grandiose, all smile, saying me hello as if nothing happened. I ignored him fully. This was the last time I saw him, I left the club and now I leave the city.
I reported the incident - factually filming without my authorization and aggressive behavior - to the presidents of the club, their lightweight answer sounds like they are fully under the spell of the man's lies, I seem to understand he told them all he had "f***** me since this is what I wanted", which then explain why I leave (out of shame), maybe he showed photos or transformed photos (with generative AI, some fake nude or something like that). The only two people I could tell a tiny part of this story just laughed at me, they are the presidents of the club where this all happened. Club full of credulous people who side him. This was my only home in this town. He ruined my reputation in the eyes of 300 people who I may cross in my professional life, mostly influent people, well-educated, who believed and played with. Several of them witnessed the last aggressive episode with no reaction, not understanding or even participating to the scene without knowing about it. He played them all. I am actually the first to understand his sad games, but I am although there having loved a shadow, an emptiness. The man of my life.
I will not know about the nature and intensity of the last lies. I feel isolation, humiliation. I had PTSD during a whole week after the aggressive scene. What stroke me most is the passivity of the other people: the man would have been able to organize a rape, in front of other, with others thinking "she deserve it well". Maybe this was is goal the last day, willing to coerce me into contentment with fear and maybe drugs/substance. The violent episode suddenly made me realize what had happened for months. I just left. Sometimes I feel bad. I can't believe what happened. I lost my mind for an empty shadow.

2023.06.09 07:29 Affectionate-Bend267 Decision Day/Reunion Reactions
My predictions were: Yoly and Xander together - and everyone else going home solo.
Honest reactions to decision day: Stoked Yoly chose Mal, because Mal is insanely awesome. And so is Yoly.
I yelled NOOOOO when Tiff proposed, and when when Sam said 'yes' to Aussie.
So fucking relieved and proud that Xander did NOT pick Vanessa.
Did NOT fucking like how Yoly showed up without her ring on and let Xander pour her heart out like that because she "wanted to hear where Xander was at". Hard situation and a self-centered move. It doesn't matter where Xander was at, you'd already made a choice.
I realize now that Yoly is selfish in that particular way.
When Mal would say how hard Yoly's situation was and "I am going to support my partner", I kept waiting for Yoly to chime in with something about supporting Mal, but I think she was too absorbed in her own experience.
Xander and Mal are fucking iconic. Such solid, loving, generous humans.
Sort of neutral on Lexi and Rae. Glad they both proposed to each other... Didn't love how Lexi laid into Rae, and bullied her when shit was hard.
Mildred: - I got in a friendly debate with my housemate after the scenes with Aussie and Mildred. I said "I grew up with someone talking to me like [Mildred] and I would have walked out too." I thought Aussie bouncing in THAT circumstance was healthy and legit. - The way Mildred talked about her domestic violence towards Tiff and then cited Tiff not opening a bank account or connecting with her kid as justification... Nah! Where there is smoke there is fire. Where there is physical abuse there is psychological abuse. And that is what abusive people do. They tell you that the violence they do to you is your fault. - She seemed to have NO self-awareness about how effed up the situation was. Despite being so violent that Tiff called the cops, she was still crowing about being a victim?! - I'm sure it was unhealthy all around but nothing absolutely nothing excuses trying to harm a partner like that. - I think Tiff kept it classy all things considered. They tried to push back, didn't stoop low or call Mildred names or any of that, and then left when it was too much. - Also, Mildred's comment about the eyeliner?? I was like "Babe, you're literally wearing it right now..." also, wasn't there a scene with her doing her eye make-up in the show. Slippery slippery stuff like that makes my danger bells blare.
Vanessa: - Matured a teeeeeny tiny bit, but not much. Still tried to stir up drama when there isn't any and then doesn't get it when people are calling her on being manipulative.
Mal and Yoly: - "Happily broken up." Ouch! Coming from Mal that hit. - Bummed to hear that Yoly was hiding behind partial truths with Mal like that. - I was so impressed with Mal's fierce trust, and that's definitely who she is, but if Yoly was sending her unsolicited messages reassuring her that she was her pick, it makes it make more sense. - Mal came out of this season looking like such a legend. I'm such a huge fan.
Sam: - Get out!!! She is so amazing, patient, mature, compassionate, and Kind. She deserves better than a partner who keeps her in the closet. She deserves to be wildly chosen and celebrated.
Aussie: - Hope they're getting the therapy and support they need.
Rae and Lexi: - Feel neutral about them
Xander: - Respectful til the end. Things didn't work out with Yoly but they they didn't say anything against her. I wish them the fucking world! I hope they find happiness.

2023.06.09 07:28 TopKekBoi69 3 Week Bromazolam Binge. Need help
I’m no stranger to Bromazolam. Went on a 3 month date with it along with its friend Klonopin. Ended up in rehab for that and a few other substances. Left after 2 weeks cuz it was a shit facility (long ass story). Been a poly-addict my entire life. Was doing good with sobriety for about a month and didn’t properly equip myself with the tools I needed.
So I relapsed for 2 weeks taking various amounts (4+ mg a day). Over the past week I got myself down to 2mg.
My dilemma: I only have 8mg left….
Going back to rehab would probably result in my parents kicking me out (dads a hothead and doesn’t try to understand). I really am doing better mentally and am going to meetings and everything right now. Doing my best I can, realized I fucked up quick. Sadly these substances grab you by the balls fast, without warning.
I don’t think I have enough to taper and currently don’t have access to shit. So basically I’m just feeling fucked and need some advice. What do I do?? My boss is in recovery so they’re super understanding, it’s my parents I worry about. I wanna get better and for them to see that and understand it was a small fuck up, but alas, people who haven’t been through it just don’t get it. So yeah I’m in a bit of a mess. I got a cool doctor I’ve known for awhile who would prolly give me a taper, but can’t get in for another 2 weeks. Gonna try to get it moved up, but I just don’t know what to fuckin do man. Anyone have a similar situation or any advice to lend?? Appreciate anything right now. I just need help and am ready to get this shit in the past.
TLDR; Relapsed on bromazolam for 2 weeks (4+ mg a day), tapered down to 2mg, but only have 8mg left and no access to meds and a difficult living situation. Help lol

2023.06.09 07:27 jesus2nd NHS or Private?
I was diagnosed with sleep apnea last year after an "At home" sleep study. As a result I was sent a lovely photocopied leaflet on how to live with sleep apnea and that if I wasn't falling to sleep whilst driving then I wouldn't be seen to.
I bent the truth a bit because the constant struggle with exhaustion was overwhelming me, I managed to have a telephone appointment with a lovely gentleman who didn't listen to a word I had to say and just told me to lose some excess fat.
I'm not fat, I go to the gym and have a manual job so a lot of my bodyweight is just muscle mass.
I was told I would be reviewed in three months so I set about trying to cut down a bit of body fat...a year later and I've still not had a review and my quality of life has deteriorated massively, I've been back to the GP and had them refer me back to the sleep clinic but I'm not holding on to much hope.
I've lost a bit of weight and also had a septoplatsy but nothing has helped.
I'm edging on going private but not too sure the best way to approach it and don't want to end up throwing money down the pan.
Has anyone got any advice or stories to share that might point me in the right direction? It really feels like it's all coming to the boil right now I really don't have much energy left to throw at it.
I'm based in Yorkshire if anyone has any recommendations around my area for going down the private route.

2023.06.09 07:27 graphingcalculator_ (31F, 30M) I don’t have feelings for friend and don’t know what to do in my friend group
This situation is a bit frustrating to me. I left a dangerous marital situation, and I am not looking for any kind of relationship for a long time. I started going to these weekly events because I wanted to have some fun and make friends. I was wary of making any guy friends, but I met a guy (I’ll call him Z) who said he was asexual.
I know that people that are ace can still want romantic relationships, but it seemed like he rarely found himself attracted to people, and he had platonic female friends. I guess I wasn’t quite as worried because he made it seem like he wasn’t really interested in romantic relationships. He introduced me to other friends, and the group would all hang out. I really enjoyed hanging out with all of them. I felt like the group just clicked, and I could be myself.
However, I’ve still been going through some heavy stuff and recently dealt with some serious stalking, harassment, and violence issues from various men (not affiliated with ex or my friend group at all…different circumstances, coincidentally). I’ve been quite depressed lately. Z and others knew about all this. I wasn’t really trying to hang out with Z, and I wanted to be alone, but he was concerned about me I guess. I was in a pretty bad state of mind and not taking care of myself anymore, and then he took me off guard by casually mentioning that he hoped to start a relationship with me in the future, but we can talk about that later. I was kind of flabbergasted that he would mention that at that very moment. I understand that sometimes you can’t help your feelings, but why? Why bring that up at such a vulnerable and horrible time in my life? I don’t have feelings for him in that way, and it made me really question his intentions. He’s also a year younger than me, and I really have no intention of dating a guy younger than me, to be honest. It’s not like it’s that much of a big deal, but he’s inexperienced in a lot of things (relationship-wide and sexually), and this is just a preference thing.
Was he trying to be a supportive friend because he thought he’d “demonstrate his value” and get a relationship out of this or something? Now I don’t know what to do. I don’t necessarily want to hang out with him now. The friend group I made is pretty new, so it seems like it would be weird for me to hang out with them only if Z isn’t there. Additionally, now I feel like I can’t really feel comfortable going to the weekly events because the organizers are good friends of his, and he goes to all of the events.
Now I don’t know what to do. I am not sure if I should just not hang out with the friend group anymore or what.

2023.06.09 07:26 SammeiBardSnake [Online][5E] Two players needed for a new homebrew campaign [6:00PM MST]
The Transparent Continent is home to many wonders, mostly magical. However, recent history has seen an upheaval with the rise of a new power that uses steel and flame in place of the arcane. Technology is beginning to raise the population to new heights, and worst of all for the Empire of the Unbent, even beginning to surpass magic in some areas. The Unbent has been at the forefront of the world's magical development for a thousand years, but as any empire that exists for that long has seen, cracks are beginning to form. With the turn of the new age a differing power, a technological superpower founded by gnomes named the Cognizant, has been putting political pressure upon the Unbent, calling them out for their old-fashioned use of magic. Additionally, with revolutions all over the globe ending up with constitutions and figurehead monarchs, civil rights movements have begun to set their eyes on the Unbent for their massive use of slave labor and a canyon-wide divide between quality of life for those who have magical talent and those who do not. All this to say that Magic as a whole, as it is associated with a globally hated empire, is looked down on by the citizens of the world, especially by the upper class of the Cognizant. Everyone knows the Empire of the Unbent is on its way out, and a new age of technology and rights for all those sentient races is coming soon. However, the decline of the Unbent and the political landscape of the Transparent Continent is shaken by earth-shattering news. A pilot operating one of the Cognizant's new flying machines was blown way off course, and came back with news of a huge landmass to the east. The Cognizant tried to keep the news under wraps, but soon the whole Transparent Continent knows: There's a new world to the east. A huge rush for the new world is coming, and everyone knows that the group who does the best work will be able to bend the other states to their will. The Unbent hopes to regain their 1000-year prestige, while the Cognizant hope to use this opportunity to put the final nail in the Unbent's coffin. Many independent groups also are moving, and the new world is set to become a warzone.
So, I have a bit of a story. I'm Sammy (23M), and we actually started this campaign already. It was originally four people, but became two very fast as usually happens with new campaigns. As I'm writing this I have just finished DMing session 1, which ended in a TPK by Dust Bunny. I'm not kidding, I found a monster block for swarms of magical dust bunnies. It was not meant to be a hard encounter, but the dice betrayed the players and empowered the bunnies at every turn. The series of coincidences were astounding. Still, we had fun, and we are taking this opportunity to reset and tell a different story. For that, we need two more players, so here I will extend my hand and welcome all of you to The Transparent Continent.
I also have a warning to all of you before you decide to apply. We at the table decided to go very, very dark with the subject matter as a way for us to enjoy the story. The Empire of the Unbent are basically magic nazis. The war that is happening now in the Transparent Continent is called The War of Reconquest by the Unbent. The Unbent are Magocratic to the extreme, enslaving EVERYONE who isn't at least a little magically talented. There is a WHOLE NATION of rejects from a magical eugenic breeding program on the continent that to this day serves as a vassal slave state for the Unbent. In the FIRST SESSION, we saw Unbent Mages vaporizing surrendering soldiers. All this to say we will be dealing with very serious subject matter, and that we at the table enjoy this type of content as a way to tell a more engaging story.
Aside from that, we're a big gaggle of goofs and we were laughing uproariously as both of our main characters died to Dust Bunnies. We hope that you find our table interesting enough to play at. If you do, hit me up in the DMs or get in contact with me however you like and we'll talk. Thanks so much for your time, and I look forward to meeting you.

The old gold road used to lead to what? The city of gold the the city is whose? The yellow brick road don’t lead to a city its the road that runs through a cemetery. The man behind the curtain I hear his laughter you won’t like what you see I am certain. the road to god to gods city the symbols and signs the words all twisted. On both sides of the street he walks selling empty promises. the yellow brick road leads to gangster city to me looks more like a cemetery look to the right and left of you tell me what you see. I see crypts bodies and blood behind the curtain I hear laughter. I hope you know when your dead he will bury you right next to them. The puppet master pulling strings divide and slaughter everything. A six a five seven or four maybe it’s eleven 11s like to sides of the streets. he walks on both feet and loves it when brothers kill and cause sin then. to him it matters not the color or the flag that you wave to him a true patriot just shoots at he paid to shoot at. Satans like a guiding star leading you to his city the city of the dead. The yellow brick road is not just that the governments also walk it. Right side left side red or blue. your not paid ask questions soldier. Salutin to who again? Behind the curtain I hear laughter once again. How to create a mindless human drone the illusion of power. then pay them just enough to stay make them idolize their own destruction. lie about everything and tell them its truth say they are illuminated. bind them to the darkness with a blinding light. And make sure they don’t know the truth about god hide his story he’s name destroy his family first. Read between the lines find what’s hidden inside read real lines read between the lies.

2023.06.09 07:25 grizzlyhare Unattended Vehicle Hit in Arizona
My unattended vehicle was hit in the parking lot of a grocery store and I contacted 911. The guy who hit my vehicle left a note with his contact info and when I contacted him, he apologized and offered to take care of it outside of insurance. I declined and asked for his insurance info and he failed to send it to me in a timely fashion, so I contacted my own insurance company to report. The guy finally sent me his insurance info, which I forwarded to my insurance company. My insurance company contacted both the guy as well as his insurance company and triggered the claims process with his insurance company. Shortly thereafter, both my insurance company and his insurance company contacted the guy and determined him to be 100% at fault.
His insurance company told me everything was set for me to get my car repaired, but there was a 'small issue' with the guy's coverage. When I tried to get more details about this, they said they couldn't give me any further details due to 'policyholder privacy'. I have since found out that there could have been a lapse in his policy and his insurance company have contacted him numerous times to get 'documents' and failed. They have said they will continue to contact him for 30 days and, if they ultimately fail to get a hold of him, they will consider him uncovered and I won't be able to get my claim fulfilled by them.
If he ends up being deemed uncovered, per AZ law, operating a vehicle without insurance is illegal (punishable by 3 month license suspension, $500 fine, and negative impact to future insurance premiums), does it make sense to get the police involved now or wait until the 30 days is up? The police already offered to go to his house when he initially was dragging his feet giving me his insurance info.
It would appear his options are either prove insurance coverage, thereby granting me coverage for my repairs, or admit to the police that he didn't have coverage and suffer the consequences. Also, with the latter option, I would presumably be stuck having to get repairs paid for through my own uninsured coverage and then have to go to small claims court to get my deductible out of him. With respect to his ability to pay, I have determined that this guy is a plastic surgeon who lives in a $2 million home.

Courses proof (screenshots for example, or 1 free sample video from the course) are available upon demand, simply Contact us here If your agency is making between $10-30k per month, you’re sitting on an absolute goldmine and you have no idea.
After running my agency for 4 years, delivering over $100M worth of value to my clients, and generating 8 figures in total revenue, I’ve realized that any
agency can be a massive business with the right mechanisms in place.
When I began building my agency in 2018, it was a good business for me and my partner.
It put food on the table, and we were able to help to grow other businesses that we were passionate about.
We didn’t realize at the time that the only thing keeping us at the mid-6-figure per year mark was our own mental blockages.
Just about any agency can be an 8-figure a year endeavor, especially if you do it the way that we’ve done it.
Most agency owners in the $10-30k per month range operate within a freelancer mindset.
You struggle with hiring, you struggle with building processes, and you struggle with scaling.
You do not
have a demand problem.
For every agency, there are at least 500 potential clients with a problem that your agency can solve, and they’re willing to pay good money for you to do so.
With the right offer, 100-200 clients will be enough for you to have an 8-figure a year company that will sell for a multiple that could be in the range of 6-12X.
This course consists of 10 modules with text and video, plus 3 bonus modules that outline everything you need to know about:
- Building systems for scaling fast
- How to diversify your lead generation to never have an empty pipeline again
- Assembling a team of people who care about your company’s vision as much as you
- Remaining profitable as you scale
- Avoiding mistakes at the intermediate and advanced levels with your business
- The steps you need to take to sell your agency for 8+ figures
As long as you have an offer that’s proven to work in an industry that’s likely to continue to exist in 10 years, you have a multi-million dollar opportunity at your fingertips.
At the $10-30k a month level with an agency, you’re currently working harder than you will be at $100k a month.
The good news is, you’re only a few months away from hitting that target profitably if you do exactly what I outline in this course.
After thousands of mistakes in the building process, I know exactly what I’d do if I had to start from zero.
If you’re just starting, you have the opportunity to build everything right and avoid 90% of the mistakes that we made in the early days.
Instead of taking 4 years to scale to ~8 figures like my team and I did, you could potentially do it in half the time.
Before you buy, you need to understand this.
This course will work for any agency in the digital space, but it is not
This is not to show you how to land your first client and find your niche.
This will only work if you have at least 2-4 clients and you already understand your offer.

I've started a story and I couldn't be more excited. With only 5 chapters to start and a slow update schedule I'm sure I won't get many readers, at first, but I thought I'd give myself a small boost at the start. A bit of advertisement looking for some critiques and the like. Better to get told what to fix when you're at ground level.
Summary: Despite his name, Hiro Hierro never expected to become a hero much less anyone's Champion. Yet here he was, one of the many who were called to stand between civilization and a rapidly changing world.
Too bad he is very much the wrong guy for the job. The other guy missed his call and Hiro is left stumbling to find his feet.
Out of shape, tired in more ways than one, and nowhere nerdy enough to take advantage of the powers gifted to him. Still, they gave him a mystery. What did they think was going to happen?

2023.06.09 07:23 HonestSpot9313 Update: squatter neighbors eviction
About a month ago, I made a post asking for advice about my neighbors eviction. I just wanted to thank you all for your suggestions and advice.
About the eviction for those who care:
The eviction was postponed but finally carried out today. It did end up being pretty ugly, as expected. They refused to open the door and tried to hide inside for about an hour. Once several more cars showed up, and the sheriff started getting louder and banging on windows, they finally opened the door. They tried to say they "didn't know" (we watched them get served at least 5 times) and were never "hand delivered" anything. Sheriff explained that wasn't how that works and they needed to get out immediately. The lady next door was threatened with arrest if she didn't leave and she slammed the door in the sheriff's face...
They eventually got her to open the door back up after telling her that Animal control was coming. She finally started grabbing some things. She tried to argue her way back in but obviously failed and finally left. This started at 10am. They finally had the neighbors gone and the house cleared by 5pm. They didn't pack a thing. Not one box. Found out they had actually been in the house illegally for 9 months and located a "sizeable" amount of drugs in the home.. Thankfully they kept everything removed on the neighbors property. And everyone who showed for the eviction was very respectful to my property. (They have to access my property to get to the neighbors).
I did record everything and did take pictures of before, during, and after just in case. I don't think this is over yet..
However... the neighbors have already been back to the house twice since they all left. First time trying to open windows and the door with no luck. The second time digging through things and I think they left their dog?! It either got out of their car unnoticed or they dumped it... it's been crying outside for 3 hours now. If they don't come back for it by morning, I will report the dog as abandoned.
Anyways... just thought I'd update on the situation and thank those for the advice.
Good luck to anyone buying occupied homes at auction. Hopefully you don't run into situations like this!

2023.06.09 07:20 Professional_Purple2 I feel so empty despite having a good life and I wish i never existed
Hi, I know a few people have posted something like this before but Ive tried all solutions from other posts and yet have been going around in circles.
I've been working since I was 21 (am now 24). I have a pretty good job for my age and able to live a very good lifestyle and am very grateful for it. Yet, I feel empty.
Ive never really had an ambition, and still don't. My job consists of me replying e-mails for a tech company and theres not much workload. So I do have energy to do things after work but it feels like a temporary distraction from the void within me.
I have great close friends who are my support system, and I occasionally go out with them and feel better like 2 hours after. But it also just feels like a distraction. Now it's to the point where Im not even excited to go out with them anymore because i feel empty even around them.
Ive pursued hobbies seriously (such as going to singing classes) and even casually (like doing tiktok dances and playing games) and yet its just another temporary distraction
I go to social meetup events as well to meet new people. Ive also made new friends in bumble bff. I live with good housemates and go back home to visit my family occasionally. But everything is still so empty.
I do Yoga and dance workouts. I used to be religious but somehow religion sometimes just fuels me with anxiety (like I would feel guilty for not being Grateful to God etc..) so I took a step back from it for a while.
Everything just puts me in circles. Emptiness -> Distraction -> Emptiness -> Distraction
The only advice I havent followed is find another job that Im passionate in (due to economic and financial reasons). Teachers, doctors, lawyers all arent compensated well in my country and people are quitting left and right. I chose to stay in my job as its stable and with my current situation I cant risk financial instability.
Life is so pointless and I constantly wish I never existed (not in a suicidal way just a I dont wanna be here type of way)
If anyone has been through the same experience and found a way out please enlighten me. Ived tried all the things I can do in my situation to be better but everything just goes back in circles.

2023.06.09 07:19 Ornery_Name_5271 How Long Does It Take To Get Straight Teeth With Invisible Braces?
Alternatives to conventional, contemporary braces include invisible braces. For people who don't want to wear metal gear, they offer straighter teeth. Many patients feel uncomfortable having their teeth straightened as adults because they think traditional braces are just for teenagers. The good news is that patients can prevent significant or obvious modifications by using invisible braces
as a discreet treatment.

In 2006, a car mechanic slipped and badly cut his hand on a car door that had broken.
He patched the cut himself rather than going directly to a hospital. This was unfortunate because he had actual damage to the tendons in his hand and went on to have consistent pain while working.
A few weeks later, he began noticing a bizarre phenomenon while he was showering.
As his left hand began to wrinkle in the water, his other hand, the one that was injured—was not wrinkling. https://preview.redd.it/2pn7x6cufx4b1.png?width=602&format=png&auto=webp&s=5d79f0c06cb0b303c86153b4ed9efd843e28ca84
This is a common feature of nerve injuries in the hand; your nerves fail to detect the submersion in water and therefore fail to tell your body to react.
Nerves are not in our body to annoy us and cause pain for no reason—these functions are critically important. People who lack sensory function often injure themselves quite badly, leaving their hands on hot stoves without knowing it.
Remember—if you get injured—go to the hospital. Don’t be a tough guy.
2023.06.09 07:18 CursedHarrenhal A Guide to Jon Snow's friends & foes in the Night's Watch in TWOW (Spoilers Extended)
Im trying to predict what's gonna happen with everyone at Castle Black in TWOW. I have ideas, but one problem keeps coming up; we dont know how the brothers of the Night's Watch will respond to Jons murder.
I believe Jons murder will cause a lot of division in Castle Black; between the NW vs the Wildlings, the NW vs Mel & Selyse... but it will also cause division WITHIN the NW. Some seem to support Jon, others appear not to. For the majority of the NW, theres no indication one way or another. But I wanna know who's on which side, so heres what I've come up with so far:
- Dolorous Edd
- Hareth (Horse)
- Iron Emmet
- Bowen Marsh
- Wick Whittlestick
- Othell Yarwyck
- Septon Cellador
- Alf of Runnymud
- Left Hand Lew
- Ser Alliser Thorne
- Fulk, the Flea
This list only includes NW brothers who are still alive by the end of ADWD. It's hard to say who supports Jon and who doesn't with certainty. So let me give a brief explanation for each of these guys and why I think they will be either pro- or anti-Jon:
- Ghost - Obviously he's on Jon's side. He arguably IS Jon. And yes.. Ghost is a brother of the NW
- Samwell Tarly - No explanation needed. But Sam is far away, in Oldtown, so he's irrelevant to Castle Black in the TWOW opening
- Edd Tollett - No explanation needed. But Edd has been sent to Long Barrow along with Iron Emmett, so he isn't at Castle Black either.
- Hareth (Horse) - Horse is guarding Jon after the Shieldhall speech, right as the assassination is about to take place. If Jon trusts him enough to guard his life, this probably indicates Horse will stay loyal to Jon:
Horse and Rory fell in beside Jon as he left the Shieldhall. I should talk with Melisandre after I see the queen, he thought. If she could see a raven in a storm, she can find Ramsay Snow for me. Then he heard the shouting … and a roar so loud it seemed to shake the Wall. "That come from Hardin's Tower, m'lord," Horse reported. He might have said more, but the scream cut him off. (Jon XIII, ADWD)
- Rory - The same goes for Rory, he was with Horse guarding Jon as the assassination took place. I wouldn't be surprised if we learn in TWOW that Horse or Rory were killed in the assassination attempt. But if they survive they'll probably be Team Jon
Val, was Jon's first thought. But that was no woman's scream. That is a man in mortal agony. He broke into a run. Horse and Rory raced after him. "Is it wights?" asked Rory. Jon wondered. Could his corpses have escaped their chains? (Jon XIII, ADWD)
Jon saw the flash of naked steel a few yards away. His own bowmen nocked arrows to their strings. He turned in his saddle. "Rory. Quiet them." Rory lifted his great horn to his lips and blew. (Jon V, ADWD)
- Satin - Seems to be close with Jon. Is picked by Jon to go on missions. Jon defends Satins positions as his personal steward and squire after Edd. Satin is the only one of Jon's friends who doesn't get sent away to the Shadow Tower. Satin also adopts the old gods, indicating his closeness with Jon. Also it's clear the anti-Jon faction hates Satin. Satin probably has the most evidence of anyone to show he'll support Jon. Satin's whereabouts at the time of the assassination are not known
His friends laughed—Grenn, Toad, Satin, the whole lot of them. (Jon III, ADWD)
Septon Cellador spoke up. "This boy Satin. It's said you mean to make him your steward and squire, in Tollett's place. My lord, the boy's a whore … a … dare I say … a painted catamite from the brothels of Oldtown." And you are a drunk. "What he was in Oldtown is none of our concern. He's quick to learn and very clever. The other recruits started out despising him, but he won them over and made friends of them all. He's fearless in a fight and can even read and write after a fashion. He should be capable of fetching me my meals and saddling my horse, don't you think?" (Jon VIII, ADWD)
Whatever Satin may have done in Oldtown, he is our brother now, and he will be my squire. (Jon VIII, ADWD)
- Iron Emmett - He is picked to be the master-at-arms for Castle Black. He spars with Jon. He is selected for the mission to the weirwood in ADWD. There isnt solid proof he would support Jon, but he seems to be a prime candidate as an ally. He was sent to Long Barrow with Edd Tollett, so he isnt at Castle Black
- Leathers - Leathers almost certainly supports Jon. Leathers is a Wildling who became a brother of the NW. Jon makes him the master-at-arms after Emmett. The anti-Jon faction does not approve of Leathers appointment
"Is it true that you mean to replace Emmett with this savage Leathers as our master-at-arms? That is an office most oft reserved for knights, or rangers at the least." "Leathers is savage," Jon agreed mildly. "I can attest to that. I've tried him in the practice yard. He's as dangerous with a stone axe as most knights are with castle-forged steel. I grant you, he is not as patient as I'd like, and some of the boys are terrified of him … but that's not all for the bad. One day they'll find themselves in a real fight, and a certain familiarity with terror will serve them well." (Jon VIII, ADWD)
"How many men are enough?" he asked Leathers. "A hundred? Two hundred? Five hundred? A thousand?" (Jon XIII, ADWD)
- Jax - The same as Leathers. Jax is a Wildling who joins the NW. He isn't mentioned as often as Leathers, but given that Jon's murderers were in large part motivated by Jon's relationship with the Wildlings, I imagine any Wildling NW-brother will have to be pro-Jon
- Arron & Emrick - Two brothers from Fair Isle who are recruited by Jon. They both swear their oaths before the Weirwoods, even though they were born following the Faith of the Seven. There is little information about them, but what little we have seems to suggest they may be pro-Jon
- Pyp, Grenn & Toad - These guys are Jon's friends who he sends away to the Shadow Tower. They are certainly pro-Jon, but they aren't nearby enough to matter
- Bowen Marsh - Stabbed Jon
- Wick Whittlestick - Tried to slash Jon's throat
- Othell Yarwyck - The First Builder of the NW. He is one of the leaders who is increasingly antagonistic towards Jon leading up to the assassination. He was seen at the Shieldhall meeting, standing near Bowen Marsh. Almost persuaded to support Janos Slynt for Lord Commander in ASOS. He doesn't attend the Thenn-Karstark wedding
As for Borroq, Othell Yarwyck claimed the woods north of Stonedoor were full of wild boars. Who was to say the skinchanger would not make his own pig army? (Jon XIII, ADWD)
But others had chosen to absent themselves to show their disapproval. Othell Yarwyck and Bowen Marsh were amongst the missing (Jon X, ADWD)
"I summoned you to make plans for the relief of Hardhome," Jon Snow began. "Thousands of the free folk are gathered there, trapped and starving, and we have had reports of dead things in the wood." To his left he saw Marsh and Yarwyck. (Jon XIII, ADWD)
- Septon Cellador - A part of the council that becomes increasingly antagonistic towards Jon's command. There's not a lot of evidence to support him being anti-Jon, except he hates the Wildlings and assoiactes with the anti-Jon faction
"These are godless savages," said Septon Cellador. "Even in the south the treachery of wildlings is renowned." (Jon XI, ADWD)
- Alf, of Runnymudd - Alf appears to be heartbroken when Garth is killed by the Wildlings. Some have theorized this indicates Alf and Garth may have had a gay relationship, but there is no other evidence for this. Alf is seen hanging with Bowen Marsh during the Shieldhall meeting. He likely blames Jon for the death of Garth. He is one NW brother I feel certain hates Jon
"Who is it?" asked Owen the Oaf. "Not Dywen, is it?" "Nor Garth," said the queen's man she knew as Alf of Runnymudd, one of the first to exchange his seven false gods for the truth of R'hllor. "Garth's too clever for them wildlings." "How many?" Mully asked. "Three," Jon told them. "Black Jack, Hairy Hal, and Garth." Alf of Runnymudd let out a howl loud enough to wake sleepers in the Shadow Tower. "Put him to bed and get some mulled wine into him," Jon told Three-Finger Hobb. (Melisandre I, ADWD)
Othell was surrounded by his builders, whilst Bowen had Wick Whittlestick, Left Hand Lew, and Alf of Runnymudd beside him (Jon XIII, ADWD)
- Lefthand Lew - There is no evidence for him being anti-Jon... except he is standing with Bowen Marsh and the anti-Jon faction during the Shieldhall speech. I have no idea what his beef with Jon is, but I feel certain he is with Marsh
Othell was surrounded by his builders, whilst Bowen had Wick Whittlestick, Left Hand Lew, and Alf of Runnymudd beside him (Jon XIII, ADWD)
- Mully & Fulk, the Flea - Right before the Shieldhall meeting, Jon is told by Mully and Flea that Ghost is acting aggressively. This is obviously a warning that Jon is surrounded by enemies who will try to kill him. But it could additionally indicate that Mully and Fulk the Flea are specifically Jon's enemies. This is the only potential hint I could find that might suggest Mully & Fulk are on either side
"That'd be sweet, m'lord," said Fulk the Flea, "but your wolf's in no mood for company today." Mully agreed. "He tried to take a bite o' me, he did." "Ghost?" Jon was shocked.
- Spare Boot, Kegs, Halder, & Albett - These men are part of part of Othells builders. The builders are seen with Othell and Bowen Marsh in the Shieldhall
- Ser Alliser Thorne - Alliser hates Jon, but he isn't at Castle Black right now. Although I predict Ser Alliser will return and maybe even be elected new Lord Commander in the beginning of TWOW, some theorize he may even seek justice against Jon's conspirators
Please tell me what you think of my list! I'd like to hear arguments about why should anyone be added or removed from either list?

2023.06.09 07:17 PizzaBart (very long) L Posting & Trauma Dumping
Bare with me because I’m a bit wine tipsy and don’t know where else to share these thoughts
So, I broke up with my girlfriend of two and a half years last Fourth of July (with a month-long break somewhere along that way). The breakup did not hit me as hard as the initial “break” did, and I was thriving & going out with/getting along with friends that I hadn’t bonded with in all of our time together. My ex had some controlling tendencies that prevented me from spending quality time with both long-time friends and friends that we made as a couple.
After a couple months of being single, I started hooking up with one of these friends we made as a couple (my ex and her were close so that’s slightly shit of me). Things were rocky from the jump because we knew each other as friends in the first place, and we both had trouble distinguishing our feelings towards one another platonically vs romantically. We had an agreement where we were both actively hooking up with other people, so long as they weren’t in the social circle to avoid messiness. One night I have an all-nighter at my apartment and leave a bunch of people there in the morning to go to work. When I came home, she was in my bed with another dude. Acquaintance of mine, closer friend of hers, but in our “group”. It threw me for a loop and I began alienating myself from the friend group & doing coke alone vs “socially”.
Over the next month or so, I start to become more hermitted. One night I get super drunk and (amongst some other drunk dials) call my ex at 1 AM who picks up. I do the whole drunk booty call routine but she’s not having it, however says she’s willing to meet for a drink & catch up. We do so at a restaurant we used to go to often, and after exchanging the usual how’s-work how’s-your-mom talk, I ask her ‘all things aside, scorched earth, did you cheat?’ (for context, when we broke up things felt incredibly distant & there were two instances in which I thought she had cheated and she reassured me that she did not / that I was acting irrationally / that she was committed to being loyal in our relationship). She told me that she did, twice. Both times that I had accused her of doing so. In the moment I honestly thought that I could handle whatever answer she gave me, but I honestly did not think ahead. My vision went blurry and I stormed out of the restaurant and took a taxi home to drink and do coke alone. I did leave her with the bill which is my one big lowercase ‘w’ in this post lol.
Fast forward to now, I’ve been strictly focused on work / working seven days a week and binging coke on the weekends / occasionally in the office. This past weekend was my one weekend off in three months & that Friday I guess I crashed & burned out; didn’t feel the urge to do coke once I got home at all. The next day a friend from high school texted me asking if I wanted to go out with her & some friends, I said sure. I talked with people, danced with people, and bonded with one of her friends who I vaguely knew in high school. He ended up asking if I was free for dinner to catch up later that week. I said I was, and personally really felt like I was putting my neck out there. That was last Saturday, and I texted him yesterday with a restaurant in mind, to which he agreed, and then asked if 7 PM on Friday worked for him. I still haven’t gotten a response.
At this point, as a result of everything in this post occurring, I feel like I’m intrinsically broken beyond repair. The one good thing I feel I have left is my very supportive family, but as a person, I feel entirely disconnected from them, which is something I’ve never experienced before. I’ve attempted suicide once and somehow feel worse than I did then, save for the suicidal ideation. As I said, I’ve been binging coke every week for the past three months, Friday evening-Sunday night. If 7 PM passes tomorrow I’m going to ask my dealer for some H as well.
I’m expecting comments about bi men not being real and drug abuse being pathetic, but tbh I’ve been laughing at those on this sub since I joined. I’m not looking for anyone to talk me down from any ledge. I have just genuinely alienated myself so drastically that I do not know where else to turn to.

2023.06.09 07:16 Obvious_Crab_8550 My (23F) bf of 6 years (23M) is saying hurtful things, and I'm afraid to confront him because he shuts down.
Hi reddit. Sorry if this post is rough around the edges. I'm much more used to reading reddit posts than posting them myself. There will be a TLDR at the end, but I'm seeking advice on how to confront my bf about some things he has said recently. I'll try to keep things as short and sweet as I can but it'll probably be a bit long! For some backstory my bf, let's call him Jack and I met in highschool. We come from pretty different backgrounds. I was a very poor kid growing up, broken family dynamic, homeless a few times, and I really struggled fitting in most of my life. Jack has his own battles to but since day 1, he's always had a couple of friends, fairly good family life, and had a lot of help early on establishing himself as an adult. All of this is important because many of our problems we have faced in our relationship stem from our differences understanding one another. Onto the current problem. Jack has always been the type of man to bottle up his feelings. It's taken several years but he's now mostly comfortable telling me about his feelings, his emotions, and other things stressing him out. I've always tried to be a supportive partner and remind him his feelings are valid and it's ok to talk when he's ready. The one thing I've noticed that becomes harder is when the problem and feelings are involving me. Let's say I said or did something to upset Jack. He may tell me, and I'll apologize and try to fix the problem but if I had a reason for my actions I will tell him, and he seems to always shut down saying he's a bad bf or he's being to sensitive and shouldn't be so upset. When he shuts down he won't talk to me about anything at all for days on end, and I find myself having to bottle my feelings because I can't say anything back to defend myself. It sometimes leads to arguments that I think could be handled like adults but lead to a complete mental shut down on Jack's side. Examples of things he said and my responses? Jack is a spontaneous man who likes to go out and do things, and take vacations out of state. He said I never go out and he feels like he can't enjoy himself. I like being at home more. I make myself go out a lot and I do enjoy it but he does it a lot. I said he can go out anytime he wants but he needs to tell me ahead of time about vacations so I can make sure it's financially possible for me. I tell him that he needs to give me notice on spontaneous plans because I need time to get my things done and get ready. I don't like suddenly going out when I haven't showered or I'm in pajamas. Jack shut down saying he was being a bad bf and apologized for pressuring me, but this has happened a few times and I always end up comforting him and debating it less and less each time. Jack also recently said he cringes hearing me talk to his family. I don't have a good relationship with the near entirety of my family. I do not talk to any extended family or siblings and I have a rocky relationship with my parents. Jack's family often hangout once a week for a small dinner and it's normal for many of them to hangout at a farm one of them owns and hangout for the day on a weekend. Because of work I often miss these hangouts but lately I've been trying to come around more. I've always had a hard time talking to his family. While no one is mean to me, I feel like some of them don't think I'm good enough for Jack because I'm not as settled as an adult as him. Few of them try to talk to me and even when I try to join or start convos not many talk to me so I've learned to stay back and sometimes outright avoid the whole thing. Recently at one of the small dinners however I was talking to his grandmother about dogs we liked. When we left to go home Jack said he cringes hearing me talk to them because I'm to loud and hyper (I suffer from adhd if that means anything) I felt very embarassed and uncomfortable and I decided not to say anything about it because I knew he would get upset if I brought up what he said hurt my feelings or if I asked when else I've made him feel that way. He must have noticed because he said I looked a little upset and I was being quiet. I had to force myself to smile and talk even though I felt like crying becuase I didn't want to start an argument and make him feel like he can't say things to me. All of this has made me feel a lot less happy lately. I want to support Jack's feelings but I don't think it's fair I'm now hiding mine because he always shuts down when I try to confront him and talk. I feel like I can't say anything negative about him nor can I say how I feel in return when he says something negative about me. I don't want to go out with his family or mutual friends because I'm afraid I'll embarass us both, but if I don't go out at all it upsets Jack. Does anyone have any advice how I can handle talking to him about these things he has said to me? How can I tell Jack it's ok to say how he feels about me but keep him from shitting down when I say anything back?
TLDR: Bf says I don't go out enough and socialize enough and he cringes hearing me talk to his family. I don't know how to confront him that it hurts my feelings because he emotionally shuts down.

[Captain Indrix Jaen]
When the higher ups put me in charge of this investigation, it was pretty much written on their faces what they expected out of me. Completely annihilating a squad of ships and having it broadcasted over galactic network was a deep slash in their gargantuan pride and I was a qualified military official with nothing left to live for except revenge. They wanted a manhunt that they could claim plausible deniability on. While I hated being used like some convenient and disposable tool, they were indeed correct in their evaluation of me and that I would not refuse this opportunity.
I couldn’t help but think back to what happened in the prison. I had the scourge of my life delivered to me on a silver platter, tied up and seemingly helpless. I mistook his expression of amusement as one of aggression, failing to realize that I was the one in danger in that room, not him. I should have noticed something was up when there were no scans of him in the database, instead I got complacent after seeing how lax his treatment was, thinking that he wasn’t constantly guarded just because he wasn’t dangerous when alone. In fact, all the blame went to me considering I wanted to selfishly savor his suffering instead of just ejecting him into deep space and cutting off any possible suspicion towards me.
I just couldn’t bring myself to let him off that easily. Not after he took away everything I ever knew. The family I’d managed to keep together even after being forced to enlist to pay off my parents’ debts. The crew that I had the pleasure of working with for twenty years, being close enough with each member that they would invite me to be best man if they ever settled down. I’ve spent countless nights ripping out my tongue and wrenching off all my teeth, trying to rid myself of those horrific memories, but it all just came back by the next morning.
An interesting piece of information had been hidden just below the surface of the information highway. The Meldren leader, Governor Destra Sind had a private conversation with Dominique prior to his escape. It was noted that Dominique was aggressive towards her when the conversation was broken up, but that wasn’t enough to clear my suspicion.
I just left warp at the edge of the Meldren system and was greeted with the expected regular Meldren signatures followed by the unexpected warning of a massive human ship, large enough to flatten a small city if it ever landed.
When my original ship was destroyed, all of the data that was stored in the computer systems had been wiped, meaning that none of the battle data could be recovered for study. Whatever it was that they used, whether it be an actual sentient weapon or a much more likely data wiping virus, it had looked over a black box that held the logs for each main ship system. The R&D team pieced together that the ship’s network had been breached and that the integrity shields had been shut down as the attack was made. They figured that the ships would have at least held together long enough for a counter attack if that hadn’t been the case, so now policy was to close all communication lines except for one that was constantly scrubbed before packets made it to the network, resulting in massive latency in any communications as a cost for a chance of fighting back.
This measure was made with the idea of fighting back against the one-man ship that Dominique was piloting, not a capital ship that was hundreds of times that size. I couldn’t help but stare at the visualization of the ship perched on a moon above the Meldren homeworld. It was by no means the largest ship I’d ever seen, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it boasted the most lethality in the galaxy.
Now wasn’t the time for sluggish caution considering there was a high chance that I was already in dematerialization range. Even if I managed to survive falling from orbit on a shower of debris, the nearest celestial body was a 10-kelvin, atmosphere-less hellscape that would finish me off. I opened an FTL communication line with the Governor in hopes that the lack of aggression was not a mistake.
“This is lead investigator and Captain Indrix Jaen, mind telling me the situation?”
“Meldren Governor Destra Sind, the human ship is friendly, do not engage them under any circumstance!”
“I didn’t take you for a joker, Governor. Since when were you friendly with those hairless scum?!”
Then, a new voice rang out from the call, “Hey now, even I have feelings.”
“...Who the hell is this?! Why are you on this call?”
“On the contrary, you are the one who barged in on this line. Captain Nathaniel Brand of the Mayflower 233, and also the real-estate manager for the air-space you currently occupy. Mind explaining?”
“I am investigating the escape of a galactic prisoner and Governor Sind here caught my suspicion. I bring with me full Grahtonian military authority. As far as I’m concerned, you aren’t involved in that, unless there’s something interesting you want to reveal?”
At this point Governor Sind cut into our horn-measuring contest, “If you are here for that reason, then I can’t help you. I have nothing to do with Dominique’s actions, nor do I condone them.”
“Then why the secrecy in your meeting with him? It’s clear to anyone that you played a part, the only reason you aren’t currently undergoing a full, intrusive Grahtonian audit is because people doubt that someone like you would be on his payroll!”
“Audit all you want, his escape was a complete surprise to me! That secret meeting was me updating him about the status of his people, if he took that as prerogative to waltz out of your hands then that’s on you!”
This would have been the point where I’d start singing my profanities if not for a warp signal being observed not too far behind me. I nearly fell out of my seat at the readings that were sent to me. The ship that just warped into visual distance happened to be none other than the small transport ship that was stolen from the prison during Dominique’s escape.
My instincts told me that I’d been caught in a trap, that I was flanked by two forces and every passing moment may as well have been my last. Then my logic kicked in, asking why they would even bother flanking me, and then how a transport vessel would pose a threat. These doubts were given fuel when I heard two exclamations from the call, one of utter surprise and one of exhausted annoyance.
There wasn’t a guarantee that my target was actually on that ship, I needed more information before I could act. This could be my greatest chance at my goal, but it would all be for nothing if I make a mistake here and cut off any future chances.
I promise the filler ends here, next chapter stuff actually happens
Imagine setting a more lenient release schedule just to procrastinate more instead, couldn't be me

Set 2 : Tweezer , Bouncing Around the Room 1 , The Mango Song , The Squirming Coil > Gotta Jibboo > Meatstick 2 > Tweezer Reprise
Encore : You Enjoy Myself
1 Brief outro solo from Trey, which replaced the usual closing guitar lick. 2 First Meatstick to feature Japanese lyrics.
Funky Bitch - Atypically improvisational must-hear monster.
Chalk Dust Torture - Winning fans in Japan. This huge first-set-closing version raises hell and ends, but then there's a second ending that concludes cacophonously.
Tweezer - Atypically slow but monstrously improvisational version that has several peaks and valleys before speeding-up and concluding in a melodic, triumphant, must-fucking-hear manner.
The Mango Song - Ending jam segment stretches the limits of the basic jam with some nice rhythmic variation, but still stays "in bounds."
You Enjoy Myself - Deeeep, funky jam/groove, and the return of the B&D; segment!
The Moma Dance included Funky Bitch teases and Tweezer included Funk #49 teases. This was the first ever Meatstick to feature Japanese lyrics and Trey flubbed the words while attempting to sing them. Bouncing included a brief outro solo from Trey, which replaced the usual closing guitar lick. This show was re- broadcast on Japanese television.

Phish, Friday 06/09/1995 (28 years ago) Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Morrison, CO, USA
Gap Chart, Tour: 1995 Summer Tour

Set 2 : Split Open and Melt , The Wedge , Scent of a Mule , Cavern > David Bowie , Acoustic Army , Sweet Adeline , Slave to the Traffic Light
Encore : The Squirming Coil
Run Like an Antelope - Unusual jam. Sort of off-key. Sort of evil. Dissonant and anti-melodic. No real peak; it just fades into "Rocco."
Split Open and Melt - Improvisational playing in several sections tests the rhythmic and melodic standards for "SOAM" in this solid version.
Part of the soundcheck's jam consisted of 25 or 6 to 4.

Encore : Highway to Hell
1 Trey sang verses through megaphone. 2 Acoustic and without microphones. Fish on Madonna washboard.
It's Ice - Good rocking jam with excellent Fish and solid Trey (of course Page is great).
Mike's Song - The 1st jam is rocking and ass kicking, with a clever little "Tweeprise"-like walk up. The 2nd jam is basically a non-vocal version of something very "Simple"-like. Just listen and you'll hear it. The return to "Mike's" has more crazed '94 scream-infused power action.
Trey sang the verses of Fee through a megaphone. Ginseng Sullivan was performed acoustic without microphones and featured Fish on Madonna washboard.

Encore : Take the 'A' Train > Contact
Foam - -> in from "Fee." Groovy and excellent Page section with solid backing from Mike and Fish. It's all good from there.
Run Like an Antelope - Good exploratory version that gets nicely beyond the standard. Great tension, dissonance and experimental jamming.
Harpua included Funkytown teases and 'A' Train contained a Dixie tease from Trey. The band launched into the second set-opening Whole Lotta Love Jam as the DJ had been spinning the original Zeppelin version. The opening act was The Aquarium Rescue Unit.
