2020.08.18 21:40 junk_mail_haver28[M4F] INTP in Germany never dated(classic INTP stereotype)
So basically, I'm a loner, and I can't get myself to go on dating sites because I'm Indian and I know it's over before it even began(I read the OkCupid statistics 😥), and yeah, I'm indecisive as hell, try to be rational, but I'm human too. Made a lot of mistakes, have flaws, not perfect. I had a big ego once, now it's all deflated 🤣 More about me, I'm in graduate school in Robotics in Germany(actually this is my second attempt at graduate school), ask me more about this when you DM/Chat me if you are interested. I'm pretty boring or can I say have a boring life now? But I hope to make it interesting after Covid ends. My music interests keep changing every now and then, but right now here are some of the artists/bands I listen to Zhu, Pacels(Aussie band in Berlin), Roosevelt(German), Toro y moi, Satin Jacket, SG Lewis, Khruangbin etc. I discovered I can easily get a crush on INFP females. But I have no idea about other types. All types welcome! Other facts about me, I studied in an all boys school(ask me more about this 🙁), and recently I discovered that I have interest for poems(thanks to an INFP girl I talk to on reddit) and I'll write one if I'm crushing on you 😀 I watch Joe Rogan Podcast and Andrew Schulz's Podcast infrequently, trying to pick up on reading(non-fiction), if you are a reader, let's read together. Edit: I'm 174 cm tall, and I'm more on the thin side, I used to be fat, but I lost a lot of weight here.
Raiders' Wing is an inverted reference to Wing Raiders, a Booster Special which included support for both Phantom Knights and Raid Raptors.
Stained Greave is named after a piece of armor used to protect the shin.
Tear Scale is based on scale armor, an early form of armor consisting of many individual small armor scales (plates) of various shapes attached to each other and to a backing of cloth or leather in overlapping rows. Tear seems to be used with the meaning of "torn" or "ripped," but it's not transliterated correctly in the card name.
Arc Rebellion is a pun on Dark Rebellion and ARC-V.
The initials of Raiders' Unbreakable Mind spell out RUM.
Tribrigade is a combination of tri-, tribe (which is also the Japanese term for Monster Types), and brigade.
Nabel comes from the German word Schnabel (lit. "beak").
Keras is a Greek word meaning "horn."
Phractaur is a combination of cataphract (a form of armored heavy cavalryman fielded in ancient warfare) and centaur.
Brigand is a pun on both brigand (a member of a gang that ambushes and robs people in forests and mountains) and brigade. A stigma is a mark of disgrace etched onto a person's body, usually associated with the marks left on Jesus's body by the Crucifixion. The Stigma-Devouring (Konjiki) part of its name is also a Japanese homophone for "golden."
Felidgette may be a combination of felis (Latin for "cat"), flechette (a pointed steel projectile with a vaned tail for stable flight), and Bridgette (a feminine name). The term "fruitless flower" refers to a non-fruit-bearing flower, but it may also be used figuratively to mean "something that is flashy with no substance."
Lugarou is a portmanteau of Luger (The Pistole Parabellum—a toggle-locked recoil-operated semi-automatic pistol) and Loup-garou (the French term for a werewolf, pronounced LOO-GUH-ROO). The silver bullet is famous in folklore for being one of the only effective weapons against werewolves, vampires, etc.
Shrige is a corruption of shrike—a songbird with a strong sharply hooked bill, often impaling its prey of small birds, lizards, and insects on thorns.
The repeated kanji in each Computer World monster's name roughly mean the following:
Zhi (a mythical goat-like creature with a single horn from Chinese mythology)
Lin (a mythological family of one-horned beasts, which includes the qilin)
Xian (in Japanese: "hermit", in Chinese: an immortal; celestial being)
Feng (the male Chinese phoenix)
In Chinese transliteration, zh, x, and q approximately make the J, SH, and CH sounds, respectively.
Jiulong is named after the Kowloon Walled City, which was an ungoverned, densely populated settlement in Kowloon City, Hong Kong. Originally a Chinese military fort, the walled city became an enclave after the New Territories were leased to the UK by China in 1898.
The Computer World Gates are named after the Four Symbols—four mythological creatures appearing among the Chinese constellations along the ecliptic, and viewed as the guardians of the four cardinal directions.
Qinglong means Azure Dragon, and it represents the spring season and the direction east.
Zhuque means Vermilion Bird, and it represents the fire element and the direction south.
Twin Heavens (Souten) is a homophone for another Japanese phrase meaning "blue sky."
The Fusion Monsters seem to be based on the two Kongōrikishi (also called Niō)—two wrathful and muscular guardians of the Buddha standing today at the entrance of many Buddhist temples in East Asian Buddhism in the form of frightening wrestler-like statues. The Twin Heavens' Soul Tokens are based on the appearance of these statues.
Yuhi is a figurative term for "valiant person" in Japanese, written with two separate kanji meaning "bear" and "brown bear" respectively.
Kokoku is a reference to the Japanese idiom enjakukoukoku (how can a small bird (a sparrow, a petty person) understand the aspirations of a great bird (a phoenix); only a hero can understand a hero). It's written using two separate kanji with meanings related to birds.
Gaia and Gaiun are both written with the kanji for "armor" (gai). Each one's second kanji is based on the sound made with an open mouth (a in Gaia's case) or the one made with a closed mouth (un in Gaiun's case), together signifying the beginning and the end of all things. This term, A-un, is also used in Shinto and Buddhist architecture to describe the paired statues common in Japanese religious settings. In most cases, one of the two, the right one, has its mouth open to pronounce the sound "a", while the other has it closed to utter the sound "un". The Tokens' mouths in each of their artworks also correspond to this.
Kongo is a Japanese word meaning "adamantine" or "vajra" (a thunderbolt or mystical weapon, especially one wielded by the Buddhist god Indra). It's also a reference to the Kongōrikishi as well.
Together in Breath (Aun-no-kokyuu) is a Japanese idiom meaning, "the harmonizing, mentally and physically, of two parties engaged in an activity."
Hashashin is an Arabic word meaning "users of hashish" (hashish being an extract of the cannabis plant).

Libero Spiker is named after a libero in volleyball (a player specialized in defensive skills).
A playing manager or "player-manager" is a member of a sports team who simultaneously holds both playing and coaching duties.
Onkamikoto-no-Makami is based on Oguchi no Magami (the "Large-Mouthed Pure God"), a divine wolf god in Japanese folklore. It is often drawn on prayer boards to prevent fires and thefts, but it is also feared as a human-eater.
Beast King Alpha's Japanese title (Shishiou) is a pun on the Japanese word for lion (shishi).
Prufinesse is a portmanteau of Pruflas—in demonology, a Great Prince and Duke of Jinnestan that has twenty-six legions of demons under his command—and finesse.
Xenoguitam seems to be a combination of xenotime (a rare-earth phosphate mineral) and guitar. A "groove" is also an indentation where two planes of rock meet at an angle of more than 120°.
Greedys may be a portmanteau of greedy and ikhthys (the Greek word for "fish").
Ko-Kyupid combines the Japanese pronunciations of koukyuu (an archaic term for "golf") and kyuu (bow) with "Cupid."
Nezumi-Hanabi is the Japanese term for the pinwheel firework, with nezumi meaning "mouse" in Japanese.
Agonizing Rashomon of Hollow Phantoms was the name of Armitael's banishing effect in the anime. Rashomon was the gate built at the southern end of the monumental Suzaku Avenue in the ancient Japanese cities of Heijō-kyō (Nara) and Heian-kyō (Kyoto).

2020.07.21 03:15 franklyfrank7Shakespeare's Sonette (2009 Berliner Ensemble)
As a major Rufus stan, this recording has intrigued and eluded me for years. If you happen to be familiar with either of his albums "All Days Are Nights: Songs For Lulu" or "Take All My Loves," you'll recognize many of these settings of the sonnets, theatrically interpreted as only Robert Wilson and the Berliner Ensemble could (huzzah for a wealthy government that actually funds its arts! [I'm an American, woe is we...]). To say I am excited to finally watch this entire production is an understatement. ht tps://m ega.n z/file/yrJjlaza#kB1GpBk-XYEGmYSthJcBP7ynvQpaR2f4RRCihhyHSx4 (remove spaces) "The Bard is modern and alive than ever in Robert Wilson's Shakespeare's Sonnets, a contemporary take on 25 specially chosen sonnets from Shakespeare's cannon. Set to a sweeping score composed by Rufus Wainwright, a genre-bending mix of medieval German Minnesang, classical, pop, and cabaret rock is performed by the actors of the Berliner Ensemble. The sonnets were pared down and selected by dramaturge Jutta Ferbers who deftly adapted these captivating poems that were originally unintended for the theater. The production was staged in 2009 for the fourth centennial of the publishing of the Sonnets.For this production, Wilson embraces the prevalence of subversive gender conventions embedded in Shakespeare's 154 sonnets which move fluidly between male and female objects of desire. Several quintessential characters make an appearance; from boy to fool, from Cupid to the mysterious Dark Lady, from the Queen of England to Shakespeare himself. Wilson's signature sculpting of time, light, and gesture combined with Wainwright's romantic, sensitive, and at times disturbingly dark score transports audiences to a dreamlike place suspended in time." Sort of fulfilling my own request here, thanks to a much appreciated assist by u/kaufmand. Just a youtube rip, nothing fancy. Enjoy!
2020.07.04 19:05 BitBitBitBiteMy Life on the Internet Dating Circuit: Pandemic Edition
This is the internet so I am sure there are going to be trolls and jerks trying to shit on this post but overall I think it’s an experience worth sharing. After a two year hiatus from dating since my divorce and relocating back to the Chicagoland area I decided to put myself out there again and re-enter the dating scene. Prior to this I had been married for nearly a decade and since then had two children and up until this point have lived in three different cities; NYC, Jacksonville, FL, and now Chicago (ish). I actually had decent luck in the past with internet dating and even married the mother of my children after meeting her on OkCupid. Man, have things changed. I decided to go with what worked in the past first and signed up for OkCupid. The app had totally changed and there was an entirely new layout and ridiculously high subscription rates for features that were free in the past. There are a thousand questions you can fill out to make it nearly impossible to match with anyone and based on your answers your matching percentage goes up or down. I am not sure what the science is behind this but since subscribing the past few months visual queues & questions are misleading. You can alter your answers to make it look as if you DO agree with a potential match which sort of defeats the purpose of being honest about the things that matter to you, but overall the questions are subjective and without meeting the person, can be totally taken out of context. Week One: I had only been online for about a week and started sorting through profiles of women who I thought were on the same wavelength. I am kind of an aging hipster in my mid 40’s but unlike many hipsters my age, has had a successful career, and overall emotionally mature and responsible. I just like dressing casual, that’s all. I don’t know if I am as attractive as I was in my 20’s or 30’s but I have kept up well, stayed thin, and still have a full head of hair. I quickly re-learned what I didn’t like about the Chicago dating scene and built up a criteria of things I did not want in my next relationship:
The Chicago Cubs! I might be one of the only people who grew up not liking baseball. I love playing softball summer league, but watching a four hour game that is slow as a turtle on acid is not my thing
No Eastern European Green Card hookups. It was kinda overwhelming to see and have significant amount of Eastern European women from all over the area reach out and write me how they only had a few weeks left to stay in the states and would make a “loving partner’
Anyone who’s watch Orange is the New Black (Season 1) knows that situation only provides for a horrible outcome
Must match musical taste: I was in a marriage for nearly a decade where I was pretty much prohibited from listening to the music I loved; Artsy, Clangy, weirdo stuff that only so few appreciate
If it’s played on B96, no thank you
My First Match: Ok I’ll skip to the ending on this one. I totally blew it. After a decade of being out of the online dating scene apparently I didn’t know there were new rules or habits of online dating. First thing I learned was that some women will wait a day or so before responding to a match because they want to see how eager they are. There is also apparently a thing called ‘ghosting’ where someone will like you but not respond after matching. With both of these in place I made the mistake of purchasing “Read Receipts” that allows you to see that the other person has read your messages. After matching with “Joan” I wrote to her a few times thinking she was tethered to her laptop like I was. I saw several ‘reads’ but no reply. A few more days passed and I began to vomit my insecurities in message form (total bonehead move!) and nothing seemed to make her budge. She eventually unmatched me after I wrote her that the ‘ghosting’ thing was kind of a bummer. It was a bummer and in hindsight it was probably for the best. Someone who doesn’t write back on a dating site after liking you comes off as kind of cold. As much as it is frustrating to get ghosted it’s probably good to know that though they might have shown interest in you there is something clearly on their end that they are dealing with and I don’t want any part of that. Expanding My Horizons: After whiffing on OkCupid I expanded my horizons to the other big 3; Tinder; Match.com; Bumble. Of the three I had more matches on Bumble. Women seemed to like my Wes Anderson references but other than that, after a message or two, it became a series of ghosting. I can say with certainty that I was ghosted at least 12 times on Bumble which statistically speaking is a lot. You only connect with those who might be slightly on your tip and I would have assumed 3 after my first round on OKC. I can’t tell if they liked me and didn’t read that I had kids or what but for whatever reason pretty much all the women, but one, ghosted me on Bumble. Tinder wasn’t much different. I would match with a few women here and there but the difference would be that a few of them I actually had a decent connection with after a few chats. One went as far as adding me sending me her number & WhatsApp ID but after a few messages on there….you guessed it! Ghosted! And you’re probably wondering “Well, what are you saying to these women?” As a father of two daughters I assure you I am not sending anything raunchy and only engaged in playful talk and if it ever got sexual it was initiated first by the women. There are probably a myriad of reasons someone ghosts you, and I am sure men do it too. I am a rational guy and know that perhaps they met someone, started chatting with someone, or just lost all hope in general and just gave up after matching with me. I am not bitter at all about any of this. Match.com had the most dates?
You read that right. Perhaps it’s an age thing but Match.com generated the most dates. I am just as surprised as many of you may be. Match.com, and the overall experience, sucks. Anyone can write to you at any time. There are filters to prevent this but it’s so convoluted at first to figure out (by design) that you get all sorts of creepy shit. I am sure women have it a 1000 times worse but the overall experience is a bit over the top.
I had more but the three listed are pretty much synonymous with my overall experience with the others. I have also altered their actual screen name for the sake of their own anonymity:
“Kerry” - I had chatted with Kerry for about a week before we actually met. She seemed sweet and funny from her pictures and overall, esthetically was my ‘type.” We met at a bar in the Wicker Park area of Chicago and just before it happened there was a fight literally down the street. So as we were meeting there were cops and witnesses all gathered around us which was really distracting. She looked great but her overall personality, in person, was brutal. Not at all what I expected and though there is nothing wrong with her per se, I was not ready for what I was expecting.
First she would not answer any questions I hads about her, which probably meant she wasn’t as interested after meeting me as well. She was like a little Latina conversational ninja when it came to the conversation and ducked out of every opportunity to learn something about her.
I knew things were going sour so I suggested we go for a walk, to ease the awkward burden of saying “see ya” at the table and during so she went on to mention to me how she was upset by the BLM movement and that she didn’t agree with it. Regardless of your politics, at this point as a white man, I was like “Ok now I have to choose sides?”
Upon leaving the date I went to at least kiss her on the cheek to say goodbye only to be met with a full head of hair on the back of her head.
Perhaps the fist fights and cop lights were an ominous warning?
“Joanne” - Joanne was nice. She checked all the boxes creatively and seemed entrepreneurial which I thought was pretty significant given my background in tech and having started my own business, that was acquire in the past:
Upon meeting her she was attractive and as beautiful as she appeared in her pictures
But she showed up in workout gear, and I know we’re in a pandemic, but overall it just felt lazy to not show up kinda dressed for a first date
The deal breaker was when she told me she sided with Rachel Dolezal, the woman in Spokane, WA who notoriously was ousted from the NAACP leadership role after it was revealed that she was actually white. Rachel Dolezal’s defense was that she ‘identified” as black and Joanee was trying to convince me that maybe she was right?!!!
“Frenchie” - Frenchie was interesting because early on, she also checked all the boxes on paper (and even liked metal?!!!). She liked to bike around town and was in a decent proximity to me so it seemed like this would have a decent shot. She said she was 5’ 8” which was a bit taller for my taste but she reached out to me so I gathered she knew what she was comfortable with. We dated for about 3 weeks before I called it off.
Frenchie wasn’t French, German & Irish apparently. Frenchie is my favorite sub-character in Grease.
French was my first COVID date, we agreed to meet with our masks on and decided to meet at a nearby cemetery given that they are typically a low traffic destination, especially at 7PM at night.
When she got out of the car, she was easily 2 inches taller than she said on her profile. It didn’t bother me too much but I did think it was weird to meet a woman who lied about her height online when a lot of what I read was men pretending to be taller than they were.
We hit it off well enough to continue meeting, she was learning guitar, I played guitar, and we both liked to ride our bikes around but she was super cautious about getting intimate because she had
After a week or so we started getting intimate and it was awesome because I had been on a 2 year dry spell, however…
After getting intimate she started clinging on a bit harder, too quickly. We were still getting to know each other and there is still that feeling when someone is hanging out with you for too much time.
It started to feel like that friend of yours who asks to stay on your couch for a few days and ends up being there for a month
Since this came into play I started mentioning that we’re still early in this and I need some boundaries at this stage because I am just getting into dating again and didn’t want to rush things
After a few days we met up again. She mentioned that I wasn’t able to allow my kids to see/hang out with their cousins due to the risk of COVID 19, a HUGE RED FLAG went off
I just started dating this person and she is already inserting rules that concerned the happiness of my children?
Additionally, she was getting anxious about whether or not I was dating other people while we were getting to know each other
After the red flags went off I pulled back a bit and limited our time together. After about a week of not seeing each other I went over to her place. I told her I we could hang out but I couldn’t sleep over because of some errand I needed to take care of early in the morning (which was true)
She replied with “Because you don’t want to hang out with me?”
I said “No, because I need to do xyz…” and followed up with “Why would you say that?”
She muttered her reasoning on why I could sleep over but didn’t want to because of her
This is where I had it. There were a few similar comments in between this and I kind of new it was time to end it
I walked off the porch, got into my car, and drove off thinking to myself “yes, this is what you’re supposed to do when someone doesn’t respect your boundaries
While it was nice to meet and date a few people since my hiatus after being divorced I have come to realize that with the relocation back to Chicago, witnessing the COVID 19 scare and the Black Lives Matter movement, and having two kids now might not be the best time for me to get into a serious relationship. I need more ‘me’ time and revisit the things that made me happy when my prior marriage wouldn’t allow me to.
2020.06.28 17:01 MaxMotis[TOMT][MOVIE][2000s] Animated movie about gnomes and an elven girl
I think I saw this movie around the mid to late 2000s. I don't remember the plot, only some snippets of the story. It was animated, comparable to anime but I'm unsure wether it was anime or not. I watched it in germany but for all I know it could have been either in german or russian or english but german is the most likely. The movie was about several gnomes, who were traveling with a blonde elven girl. A major thing I remember is that there was a special heart, which (probably on contact) fused with one gnome [*] , who's personality would afterwards change. I think his cheaks turned pink, he would smile all the time and be overly kind to everyone. There is a bow, like Cupid's bow, with a heart-shaped Tip. If the person with the second heart was struck by the bow, i think the heard would have separated again. later in the movie, one gnom was probably fed up with [*]'s weird new personality and would try to shoot him with the bow, but accidentally fire a real arrow which the elven girl realized and stepped in front of [*] so she got hit. This happend on a little bridge and she fell off one side into a small lake. I think after this some (water-) fairys or something like that fished her out of the water where [*] he cried over her and somehow transfered the heart to her and revived her.

Ooh! Big jar this year.
Oh, Bart, that's so sweet. It's the best present a mother could get, and it makes you look so dangerous.
One " Mother," please.
Wait a minute. How old are you?
Get in the chair.
Mm-hmm. Mm-hmm. Mm-hmm.
Attention, all personnel, please keep working... during the following announcement. And now our boss and friend Mr. Burns. Hello. I'm proud to announce... that we've been able to increase safety here at the plant... without increasing the cost to the consumer... or affecting management payraises. However, for you semiskilled workers, there will be no Christmas bonuses.
Oh, and one more thing.
Oh, thank God for the big jar.
Where's that Bart?
But, Mom, I thought you'd like it. Yes, Mrs. Simpson, we can remove your son's tattoo. It's a simple routine involving lasers.
However, it is rather expensive,
and we must insist on a cash payment up front.
Thank God for Homer's Christmas bonus.
Now, whatever you do, don't squirm.
you don't wanna get this sucker near your eye or your groin.
Ow! Quit it.
Ow! Quit it. Ow! Quit it.
Ow! Quit it.
Hey, what's with this?
Ow! Quit it! Used to be a real boss tattoo. Mom had to spend the Christmas money having it surgically removed. Huh? It's true! The jar is empty! Oh, my God! We're ruined. Christmas is canceled. No presents for anyone! Don't worry, Homer. We'll just have to stretch your Christmas bonus...
even further this year.
Oh, yeah. My Christmas bonus.
How silly of me. This'll be the best Christmas yet. The best any family ever had. Hohoho. Hohoho. Hohoho. Ho ho ho. Hohoho. Hmm. I get the feeling there's something you haven't told me, Homer.
Huh? Oh. I love you, Marge.
you tell me that all the time.
Oh, good, because I do love you. I don't deserve you as much as a guy with a fat wallet... and a credit card that won't set off that horrible beeping. I think it does have something to do with your Christmas bonus. I keep asking for it, but-- Marge, um, let me be honest with you.
Well, I would--
I-- I wanna do the Christmas shopping this year. Uh, sure, okay. Marge, Marge. Hmm. Let'ssee. Ooh, look! Pantyhose. Practical and alluring. A six-pack. Oh! Only 4.99. Ooh! Pads of paper. I bet Bart can think of a million things to do with these. That just leaves little Maggie. Oh, look! A little squeak toy. It says it's for dogs, but she can't read. Ow! Oh, Simpson, it's you.
Oh, my! What a mess we've got here.
Well, which ones are yours and which ones are mine?
Well, let's see.
Oh, this one's mine. This one's mine.
This one's mine, and this--
They're all yours!
Hey, you dropped your pork chop.
Well, happy holidays, Simpson.
Gee, this is the best Christmas ever.
What's the matter, Homer? Somebody leave a lump of coal in your stocking? You've been sitting there, sucking on a beer all day long.
So, it's Christmas.
Drinks all around! What's with the crazy getup, Barn? I got me a part-timejob working as a Santa down at the mall. Wow! Can I do that? I don't know. They're pretty selective. Do you like children? What do you mean? All the time? Even when they're nuts?
Uh, I certainly do.
Welcome aboard, Simpson. Pending your successful completion of our training program, that is. Ho ho ho. Ho ho ho. Ho ho ho. Ho ho ho.
What is it now, Simpson?
Uh, when do we get paid?
Not a dime till Christmas Eve! Now, from the top. Ho ho ho. Ho ho ho. Um, Dasher.
Nixon. Comet and... Cupid.
Sit down, Simpson.
And what would you like, little boy?
You're not really Santa, tubby.
Why, you little egghead!
No, Homer! If such an emergency arises, you just tell them Santa's vey busy this time of year,
and you are one of his helpers.
Oh, I knew that one too!
Homer, why are you seven hours late? Not a word, Marge. I'm heading straight for the tub. But, Homer, my sisters are here.
Don't you wanna say hello?
Daddy! We're so glad to see you!
Oh, Dad, you're finally home!
What? Why? Oh, yeah. Hello, Patty. Hello, Selma.
How was your trip?
you both look well.
Yeah, well, Merry Christmas.
you wouldn't know it around here.
And why is that?
For one thing, there's no tree
I was just on my way out to get one!
Can we go too, Dad?
Yeah, can we?
No! Sleighbells ring Are you listening In the lane Snow is glistening A beautiful sight We're happy tonight
Walking in a winter wonderland
Hey! What do you think you're doin'?
Come back here!
So what do you think, kids? Beauty, isn't it?
Wow! Yay, Dad!
Way to go, Dad!
Why is there a birdhouse in it?
Uh, that's an ornament.
Do I smell gunpowder? and then I want some Robotoids. And then I want a Goop Monster. And then I want a great big, giant-- Aw, son, you don't need all that junk. I'm sure you've already got something much more important-- a decent home and a loving father who would do anything for you. Hey, I couldn't afford lunch. Give me a bite of that donut. Get a load of that quote-unquote Santa. I can't believe those kids are falling for it. Hey, Milhouse, I dare you to sit on his lap.
I dare you to yank his beard off.
I hope you feel better, Santa. Oh, I will when Mrs. Claus' sisters get outta town. Thanks for listenin', kid. Hey, Santa, what's shakin', man? What's your name, Bart... ner? Uh, little partner?
I'm Bart Simpson. Who are you?
I'm jolly Old St. Nick.
Oh, yeah? We'll just see about that. D'oh!
A word with you in Santa's workshop.
Cover for me, Elfie.
I didn't know it was you.
Nobody knows. It's a secret. I didn't get my bonus this year. But to keep the family from missing out on Christmas,
I'd do anything.
I'll say, Dad.
you must really love us to sink so low. Now, let's not get mushy, son. I still have a job to do. Hey, little ones. Santa's back. Ho ho-- D'oh! Damn it to-- Ah, son, one day you're gonna know... the satisfaction of payday. Receiving a big fat check for a job well done. Simpson, Homer? Here ya go. Come on, son. Let's go cash this baby and get presents for-- Thirteen bucks? Hey, wait a minute. That's right. $120 gross. Less Social Security, less unemployment insurance,
less Santa training...
less costume purchase, less beard rental, less Christmas club.
See ya next year.
Come on, Dad. Let's go home.
Thirteen bucks? you can't get anything for 13 bucks. Allright! Thirteen bigones! Springfield Downs, here I come!
you heard me.
I'm goin' to the dog track. I got a hot little puppy in the fourth race.
I may be a total washout as a father, but I'm not gonna take my kid... to a sleazy dog track on Christmas Eve. Come on, Simpson. The dog's name is Whirlwind. Ten-to-one shot. Money in the bank.
Ah, come on, Dad.
This can be the miracle that saves the Simpsons' Christmas. If TV has taught me anything, it's that miracles always happen to poor kids at Christmas. It happened to Tiny Tim, it happened to Charlie Brown, it happened to the Smurfs and it's gonna happen to us. Well, okay, let's go. Who's Tiny Tim? Hey, Moldy, do you think Santa will be able to find... ElfCounty under all this snow? I doubt it, Bubbles. We'll be sad little elves this Christmas.
Where's your husband?
Yeah. It's getting late.
Said he went caroling with Bart. We're in the money, we're in the money We got a lot of what it takes to get along I can't believe I'm doing this. Can we open our presents now, Dad? you know the tradition, son. Not till the eighth race. Hey, Barney, which one is Whirlwind? Number Six. That's our lucky dog right over there. He's won his last five races. What? That scrawny little bag of bones? Come on, Dad. They're all scrawny little bags of bones. Yeah, you're right. I guess Whirlwind is our only hope for a Merry Christmas. Attention, racing fans, we have a late scratch... in the fourth race. Number 8, Sir Galahad will be replaced by Santa's Little Helper. Once again, Sir Galahad has been replaced by Santa's Little Helper. Bart, did you hear that? What a name! Santa's Little Helper!
It's a sign! It's an omen!
It's a coincidence, Dad.
What are the odds on Santa's Little Helper? - Ninety-nine to one.
Wow! Ninety-nine times thirteen equals... Merry Christmas! I got a bad feeling about this.
Don't you believe in me, son?
Come on, boy. Sometimes your faith is all that keeps me going. Oh, go for it, Dad. That's my boy! Eveything on Santa's Little Helper. Three cheers for Brainy!
Hip hip hooray!
Unadulterated pap. It's almost 9:00. Where's Homer anyway? It's so typical of the big doof us to spoil it all.
What, Aunt Patty?
Oh, nothing, dear.
I'm just trashing your father. Well, I wish you wouldn't... because aside from the fact he has the same frailties as all human belings. he's the only father I have. Therefore, he is my model of manhood, and my estimation of him will govern the prospects of my adult relationships. So I hope you bear in mind that any knock at him is a knock at me, and I'm far too young to defend myself against such onslaughts. Mm-hmm. Go watch your cartoon show, dear. Come on, Bart. Kiss the ticket for good luck, not that we need it. Here comes Screwy the mechanical rabbit.
and they're off!
Come on, Santa's Little Helper!
Come on, dog! Go, man, go!
It's Whirlwind in the lane, and coming up on the left is Quadruped, followed by Dog O'War and Fido.
Go! Come on, boy!
Go! Come on, get that rabbit!
Dog O'War coming up fast on the outside.
Come on, Santa's Little Helper!
Come on, dog! Go, man, go!
And with a lock on last place, it's Santa's Little Helper.
Don't worry, Dad.
Maybe this is just for suspense before the miracle happens.
Come on, you stupid dog! Come on!
Run, run! Come on, get that rabbit!
Go, go, Santa's Little Helper! Run!
Go, go, go!
Whirlwind by a countrymile, second, ChewMyShoe, followed by Dog O'War. Oh, jeez! Doesn't seem possible, but I guess TV has betrayed me. I don't wanna leave till our dog finishes. Ah, forget it. Let's go.
Look, Dad, it's Santa's Little Helper. And don't come back! Oh, no, you don't! No, no! Get away from me! Uh-uh! Oh, can we keep him, Dad, please? But he's a loser! He's pathetic! He's-- A Simpson. Hmm. Maybe I should call the police.
Oh, he'll sober up.
Yeah. Come staggering home.
Mm-hmm. Smelling of cheap perfume.
What? What the-- Who the--
I have a confession to make.
This should be good.
I didn't get my Christmas bonus. I tried not to let it ruin Christmas for eveybody, but no matter what I did--
Hey, eveybody, lookwhat we got!
A dog! All right, Dad!
God bless him.
So love at first sight is possible.
And if he runs away, he'll be easy to catch. Oh, this is the best gift of all, Homer!
It is? - Yes. Something to share our love...
and frighten prowlers.
What's his name?
I mean, Santa's Little Helper. Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer Had a very shiny nose And if you ever saw it
you would even say it glows
Like a light bulb!
-Bart! - All of the other reindeer Used to laugh and call him names
Like Shnozzola! -Lisa!
They never let poor Rudolph
Join in any reindeergames -Like strippoker!
-I'm warning you two! - Then one foggy Christmas Eve
Santa came to say
Take it, Homer!
Uh, Rudolph get your nose over here
So you can guide my sleigh today
Then all the reindeer loved him and they shouted out with glee Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer You'll go down in history -Like Attila the Hu-- - You little--

I'm so sick of Tinder, OkCupid, etc., and would like to try some face to face speed dating in our beautiful city! I found some speed dating events online, but it's all in German. Do you know if there's anything for English speaking people?

If you live in the USA it is a flat $5 for shipping (regardless of how many you order). At this time (due to the current situation) I am only shipping addresses within the USA. Apologies to anyone outside the USA. All records include a 3 mil. clear outer sleeve (unless in some sort of special packaging). I ship using cardboard record mailers with cardboard inserts. The money is going toward my wife's ongoing medical bills, so I'm not really interested trading or serious haggling. I try to keep the prices as reasonable as possible. Thanks in advance for your understanding.
PLEASE READ! If you would like to place an order, reply to this post, then send me a message through the mail/message function (the envelope icon) and NOT chat (I DO NOT respond to chat requests). Mention where you live and your Paypal e-mail address. That will expedite the process. Please note that I do not reserve items until I receive a mail with that information. If you are on a home pc click on the envelope icon on the top right (next to the chat icon).

2020.05.12 20:46 vibratingwebsLeaving after a short, intense and exhausting dating period
This will probably sound ridiculous for some of you – I (21F) am not in a serious relationship with a person with BPD (though they might think that), we’ve been dating for two weeks. And yet leaving them behind seems like an extremely hard decision. She’s already told me a lot about her future wishes, about her trauma, we had a very short + very intense honeymoon phase, great sex, we went through two big crises together because I’ve told her that sometimes I like to spend time alone, I went to her therapist with her because of that. Now I’m home after three days we’ve spent together and feel so exhausted. I don’t know what steps to take next and I don’t know how to talk to her. The story: We met on OkCupid, we clicked, we did chat for a bit and met at hers (because of corona and her sick cat). We had sex on the first day, I stayed overnight, felt amazing, texted a lot, met again this weekend, I came on Saturday and stayed until today. It seem(ed) like we have so much in common – an uncommitted partner in a previous relationship, favourite books, how many kids we want, we have the same humour, laughed for hours. It was too good, a part of me knew. Yesterday, I went out with a friend of mine and wanted to go back to hers before I go to work today. During our talk with my friend, I mentioned my anxieties about going too fast in a relationship and this being suspicious for me and we exchanged some ideas about how to communicate well and move at a healthy pace. So I went back to my date and didn’t even say that much – and that’s how the crisis began. She told me she’d appreciate it if I didn’t use the word “distance” (I’m a German speaker and in German this word is kind of broader, also implying some sense of a boundary) because it triggers her and reminds her of her ex. She also seemed triggered by me mentioning that it is important for me to not forget stuff I like outside the relationship while falling in love. She asked me whether I’d like her to participate in stuff that I like and broke down in tears when I told her that it is vitally important for me to have stuff that has nothing to do with ouany relationship. The crisis circle was her apologising, saying she hates herself, saying she wishes the crisis never happened. We had a similar circle the next morning when I tried to talk about boundaries, about me wanting to be alone having nothing with being annoyed by her, lots of crying, lots of holding, lots of apologies. I slipped into my work mode (I’m a social worker) during that and it was really really exhausting. I asked her questions (eg “Do you feel like you stop existing when I’m not here?”), I used all my strength and energy to not one say that I am sorry for myself but rather stress that I am very sorry she’s going through so much right now. We went to her therapist together, I was able to explain the situation from my point of view but ofc, you can’t do much in 50 minutes and my date is her client, not me. A mistake I made afterwards when parting and made a plan with her about being in contact again (something she said she needed but something I *should not* do after a second date, you know), about me taking space now, talking over the phone on weekend and seeing each other the Friday afterwards. Now I need help about ending this because it becomes a circle. I’m much of a caretaker and have been in a two-year relationship with an emotionally instable person previously. My ex was avoidantly attached and now I have the feeling like I felt drawn to the second side of the spectrum by meeting the (very) anxiously attached person. I know I shouldn’t but I feel responsibility for my date already and am tempted to fall for potential (she goes to therapy, sent me a very reflected message after we parted). I like her, want the best for her and *know* that I will cause her much pain when I say I can’t do this and yet I feel like I *need* to. I guess I’m here for understanding, tips on how to proceed and a little push to know I’m doing the right thing when ending this.
2020.05.04 16:18 CaladeutschianMuseums of the City of Cologne will reopen from May 5, 2020
Translated from the official press release Monday, May 4, 2020, 15:32 The officially prescribed protective and hygienic measures apply After about seven weeks of closure due to the corona pandemic, the city museums will be open to visitors again from Tuesday, May 5, 2020. Strict hygiene and protective measures were coordinated with the health department. The employees and all visitors must wear a mouth-and-nose cover and keep to the officially prescribed minimum distance of one and a half meters from other people. Plexiglass visor protection is not recognized as a mouth and nose cover and is only accepted if a medical certificate confirms that the wearer cannot use the usual mouth and nose cover. ”I am glad that the museums can reopen with the implementation of responsible protection and hygiene measures. This is a positive signal, because culture plays an important role, especially in these difficult times. It can strengthen the sense of community and promote cohesion”, said Susanne Laugwitz-Aulbach, Member of the City of Cologne for Art and Culture. For the first time in decades, all city museums had to close for several weeks, cancel events and shut down the public. ”During this time, a highly creative digital museum landscape has emerged that maintains contact with society. With numerous digital offers, such as virtual tours of the exhibition, digital collections and much more, the museums have preserved public access to museum content”, Laugwitz-Aulbach emphasizes and notes: ”These offers are an enrichment, even if they cannot replace a real visit to museums and exhibitions. Culture lives from the closeness to the audience.” The protection and hygiene rules also apply at the museum ticket offices, where tickets can be purchased as usual. Annual tickets for the museums of the city of Cologne can be extended by seven weeks - the period of closure. More information on www.museen.koeln. The Roman-Germanic Museum in the Belgian House can only open on Friday, May 8, 2020, because the guided tour of this building requires special protective measures.

2020.03.12 13:52 JustBeenSeen"The Story: Judgment" - A Context written by The Conductor 03/01/2019 (PART I)...
This is an analysis of the current situation I am in as well as the death threats I have received during the last year. It will be six parts. It is a breakdown and explanation of my logic and designed to allow you to peruse and poke holes in what was said that week in October as well as the events that lead up to it. This serves as an introduction and will provide necessary context. Feel free to take a walk through my crazy life and see if you can answer one question: is this fiction or reality? It’s the same question I asked myself when I finished compiling the evidence and I am the one writing it. The story, titled Judgement, I had been casually putting together since 2016 in my free time. It detailed the life of a tragic hero with a special secret and gift that falls in love with a beautiful woman but doesn’t figure out who he is until it’s too late. It was not cohesive and was made mostly of recurring dreams and elements of my own life. I had a general outline of the story, but it lacked any originality and it had no ending. If I could put a number on the percentage completed it would have been 15% when 2018 rolled in. It revolved around a very important prophecy attached to the main character that turned out to be a curse. The details of the prophecy were unclear at that time, but I never changed the original plot, or it’s outline since I first began writing it. Even though it contained my personal true story, with sprinkled elements of science, spirituality and mythology, I intended on releasing it as science-fiction, by creating a new genre: fictional reality. No matter how many times I would take a break from writing or thinking about it, I would always go back to it. It would almost call to me to write it sometimes. The nights I would have these lucid, vivid dreams related to the story, I would wake and write about them. It was absolutely exhausting and some nights it felt like I hadn’t slept a wink. I had been pawning it off as my creative side going wild when I went to bed, but then the thoughts started to permeate my mind when I was awake more and more often. The story was broken into pieces, but the pieces that I did have were exceptionally detailed. What was important to note is that they felt as if they were memories instead of dreams. The dreams were more like a second life I was living or had lived. It was like I was reconstructing the biography of someone else that resembled me or that had lived before as opposed to creating something out of thin air. In other words, the story was writing itself and I had very little choice in the matter. I kept it a secret for so long because I wanted to complete it before telling anyone about it. It picked up steam when the train rolled into 2018 as my life started to hit a peak, offering a lot of new material to add to the plot. The year was shaping up to be the best of all-time around the halfway point. There was plenty of inspiration for my writing from the traveling, the socializing, the dating, etc. But along with that inspiration came unusual coincidences to the story I had been creating. These coincidences came to a head when a chance meeting occurred at a studio in Glassboro. The day it happened I had plans already with someone I had just started to talk to. Those plans had been changed and we decided to have breakfast that day instead of dinner. With a little help from the weather and her last-minute switch in work schedule there was enough time to stop by an event called “The Dancers Toast.” I showed up only planning to mingle, mix it up, and make my getaway. But that changed the second I saw Jillian. I felt an undeniable magnetism toward her that day and it is now detailed quite extensively in the story I am writing. But the coincidences (to the story) were just too much to take once we started dating. Our relationship was now writing itself into the story. I kept jotting these ideas of scenes taken directly from our interactions together that fit perfectly. She had this uncanny ability to start dialogues directly from my deepest thoughts and secrets. And she was always dead on accurate without me ever leading her into the conversations that we had. She was the writer, not me. The time we didn’t spend laughing together was peppered with conversations of the fantastic, specifically the cosmos, intergalactic travel and references to aliens. She would often make science jokes that were already in the story. I never mentioned the whole idea to her mostly to not freak her out, but I trusted her so much and was so enamored by her blind insight that I decided to start to tell her about it by going over some of it around Halloween, when I planned on releasing the story the following year. It was the only time I ever mentioned anything to anyone about Judgement or The Door. And, no, she didn’t tell anyone about the story because she had nothing to talk about. I never mentioned the stories to her by name, only concept. I recently spoke to her about it to settle some concerns I had, and I am 100% certain she had nothing to do with this. Once you read the rest of this and the story, you’ll see why. I do believe her to be very special, but she was not involved in the death threats I was sent. I was absolutely devastated when we broke up compounded by the fact that I had so much going wrong in my life at the beginning of 2019. She was the shining ray of hope in my world at the time and I couldn’t get enough of her. I didn’t want to get enough of her. The chance for love with someone uniquely special and a life without loneliness. Sounds good to me! But Cupid’s arrow, which never misses the target, does this one time. In the story when the tragic hero falls in love, he doesn’t know he is cursed. The only one he falls for will never love him back and he is locked inside of the story without escape. Doomed to fail at the most inopportune times the story is writing his dismal future right in front of his eyes and he can do nothing about it. Eventually he comes up with a plan to save humanity from itself and even though it works, he never gets to see The End. Able to secure happiness and fulfillment in death for everyone but himself. The most pivotal scene from Judgement (included with this email) is taken directly from the events of the night that Jillian and I broke up. Just like any respectable loser would do after being dumped, I went searching for numb and didn’t have to go far once I left her house that night the second time. I went back by after I left the birthday bash that night we broke up to drop off her stuff and a letter I had written saying a proper goodbye. And that was the mistake of a lifetime that almost caused a very, very regrettable scene for the entire Galaxy. I still have nightmares about what would have happened if I had gone up to The Door that night. I was broken in two, body and spirit. That was the last straw. I couldn’t take it anymore. Too much stress, too much to worry about, too many secrets, and now loneliness again to contend with. I had never been so upset in my life and what is even worse is that I had expected it to happen because it did in the story and still couldn’t handle the sadness. I tried to put on a happy face and brave the party I had been invited to that night, but it was no use. I had to leave early because I just wanted to be alone. For the first time in my life I decided that rum was the answer to my problems. After I left her house shattered, I raced home with the plan to drown my sorrow as quickly as possible after I consumed a few trillion tears for dinner. Driving home, I had these horrible thoughts start to cave in on me about my life. I was searching for value and came up with nothing. I knew I was making a bad choice, but I couldn’t help myself. The fear and the misery that I felt were crippling and I only wanted one thing: relief. This one is really going to hurt, I thought. It was the worst I had ever felt. I laid on the recliner, pounding Captain and diet’s, aiming for a silent mind. I asked the bottle for advice using the question “why” more times than you would want to count. Why me? Why not me? Just under 30 shots and a few beers in about three hours was the total I came up with the next morning. The most I had ever drank in one night. When I fully disconnected from reality and fell asleep, I woke up in what felt more like a virtual reality zone than a vision or a dream. There was a deep sense of clarity and cognizance of one’s life and surroundings. I took a journey through what we know as Purgatory and Hell, which I write about in Judgement. One that was far too familiar. I wind up making a Deal with the Devil himself as he tempts me in my darkest hour, while also attempting to be the first man to ever trick him on his throne, and live to tell about it (that event is included with this email). As my spirit watches my body suffocate from the vomit, I suddenly wake up, still with the taste in my mouth, and proceed to cry for hours. When I sober up, I realize I can’t handle it anymore and I turn right back to the bottle with bad intentions. My life spirals out of control and a lot of bad things happen. A lot of bad things. The world around me begins to crumble and I die alone sometime during the Armageddon. It winds up being all my fault and I spend eternity in Hell for my actions and decisions. The final punishment at The End of Hell? An empty room with nothing but a black door that has no handle or knob to open it. It is lit from behind with a glow like you’ve never seen. It was like there was a star stuffed into the next room. I wept on the cold, clammy floor for eons. Eventually I got mad because there was no response from anyone when I would call for help, especially not God! It was just blank, eternal silence and darkness. And I was pretty certain that The Light behind the Door was God himself. Locked away for you to gaze upon, but never to feel the warmth again. For eternity. I tried to break it down and when I eventually did? I woke up again. Same place, same scenario, just like before with the taste of vomit in my mouth. Déjà vu on a cosmic level. I began to write down the dramatic details as quickly as possible eventually resorting to dictation because my fast fingers weren’t quick enough for the thoughts my mind was emptying. But as I started to go back through the vision, I became overwhelmingly emotional: shaking and shivering, uncontrollable weeping, and a sense of hopelessness set in. I was inconsolable and unable to stop the flow of sweat from my eyes. I thought I felt bad in Hell, but coming back to reality was much, much worse. I got sick in the bathroom a few times in between stumbling back and forth to the recliner to cry some more while trying to write and dictate what I had experienced. Better than puking in my sleep before dying, at least! Oh God, it was God-awful! I was unaware that I could ever feel that way. A wonderful life and promising future turned to absolute shit `in less than a month and I am here alone trying to write down the account of my death that started with a bottle in gruesomely horrific detail. I was long overdue for feeling sorry for myself, so I finally was seduced by a substance that I thought would bring me silence. I just wasn’t bargaining for eternal silence, only temporary. After I had that terrifyingly real vision or near-death experience or whatever you want to call it, I came back to our reality for a second chance and within a few hours I am ready to ruin it all and follow the path I had seen. I reached for the bottle one more time and poured a double captain and diet on a Sunday morning ready to finish the job. I sat alone in my dark corner of the universe staring at that red solo cup full of destiny. The only illumination in the room was The Light right above me. I felt the sense that I was falling into a pool of evil, and I wasn’t quite sure if I cared about drowning at that point. I knew it would lead to The End of me. The End of everything I knew and loved. But I had given up on life and turned into this perfectly pathetic, sad alter ego of myself. It was the first time I had ever contemplated my mortality, my future, and the invitation of death. I knew that I wouldn’t be so lucky to die in my sleep from asphyxiation from alcohol this time around. No way in Hell. It was going to be like the vision. Long, slow, painful and merciless. A life decorated with chains and misery. Ultimately, I knew I would wind up alone again by that damn Door, and that scared me more than the Armageddon I witnessed. Terrified more of an innocuous room with The Door that has no handle than Hell on Earth. That’s really saying something about The Fear I felt right then. At the time I comforted myself by saying, “It was just a dream.” How wrong we can be at the right moment sometimes. Really, really wrong. So, I duck my head in for the first sip of see ya’ later world and just then as I tilt my cup up the glint of light from above catches my cup of the cocoa colored concoction of Captain and diet just right. Suddenly my Solo is now a mirror and I am stunned that I can actually see myself in the cup. I thought at the time, “How is that possible? It is sodark in there you can hardly see a thing.” Just when I realized the deep nature of that statement, it hit me like a ton of bricks right to my forehead at light speed. The images of my life as I had envisioned it before came rushing in like a mass of tsunamis simultaneously. As I stared in the cup it was replayed one more time, but in fast forward. After my life “flashed before my eyes,” I had this rush of emotion that it was most certainly real, and that I had lived it in some other life or alternate reality. Or even worse, that I was about to live it. Hell on Earth for one stupid decision to depend on the bottle for answers just because I couldn’t handle my life. Wow! Throw away The Plan I had that I thought might help save the world from itself and you might as well label me as the most selfish person that has ever lived in the history of Mankind. I had made a mistake of cosmic proportion, suffered the ultimate consequences, and I still probably deserved worse. A selfish [email protected]&^%! monster is what everyone would have labeled me. Still gazing into the cup that was more like a crystal ball I almost jumped out of my skin when I saw my reflection turn around to look behind him, looked back at me terrified, and thendisappeared. I squinted in disbelief. Was that real? Or did I just imagine that? It freaked me right out of my senses. I quickly put the cup down as if to say, “get away!” Thirty minutes before that I was an absolute mess and out of emotional control, but now I am unable to move with this God-awful sensation creeping up the back of my neck like The Satan was petting me with his breath right behind me in complete silence. Standing outside of the reach of my sight just to watch and observe. Waiting for me to drink it. I felt this paralyzing terror that caused my pupils to rapidly dilate. They bulged with an unflinching stillness focused only on that cup wondering if someone was in the room with me. The Fear I felt in Hell was back! I imagine my soul, remembering the last trip to Hell, was cowering in the corner hoping I would say no. I couldn’t even move my head! It scared the soul out of me! As I sat completely frozen in that exact same seat, I came to the conclusion that this was it for me. My life and all of reality was down to this one red plastic cup filled to the brim with sin. A dark cloud had settled in over the house and pain was about to pour from the Heavens. Was I going to drink it or not? I could hear myself whispering silently in my head, “it’s just one drink, right?” That’s what all alcoholics say. With all the problems I had been keeping secret I had started to drink alone more often in private leading up to the breakup with Jillian. It was the only way to get rid of my endless insomnia due to excessively high levels of stress. That stress had taken a toll on my health, my fitness and my mental well-being. You should never keep secrets like I had for as long as I did. It will make you madder than a hatter. I was at wit and ropes end looking right at the abyss in a seemingly harmless cup of liquid, a red beacon signaling impending doom. It might as well have been a serpent I was staring at. What scared me even more is that I still wanted to drink it. It was almost as if the cup was whispering to me, “give it up…you’ll never find peace without me.” At that point I hit rock bottom and said to myself out loud, “I have nothing left to offer. Maybe I was better off dead. Back in Hell.” The road to recovery seemed too long, the healing needed too great, the soul too far gone to get back. I almost gave up. Almost. I thought about my family and friends again from the vision and how they suffered. I witnessed their deaths during my stay in Hell and I began to weep again. I cried out, “God help me! I am sorry for what I might do! Please save me from myself!” The tears streamed down my face acting like a waterfall to carry my pain away. I felt a sense of calm after the storm subsided. Emboldened by the last shrivel of positivity I had left in my life and a nudge from God, I wanted to show the world that I had fight and could find my way back to The Light. That I could come back from the depths of despair and still make the world a better place even if I was doomed to fail and to die lonely. Otherwise it's gonna be Hell. I picked that cup up one more time and marched it right over to the sink and dumped it out. I dashed back down the stairs to get the other bottles of Captain and all the liquor and proceeded to empty the house out. All 35 bottles of it. Gone. I wasn’t going to give away my sins. They were mine and mine alone. I recorded it and then interviewed myself on video that Sunday night, a trend that would continue all the way through my recovery period last year. I called my parents and told them I was going to lock myself in their basement for a period of sixty days to beat this without professional help and record it all. Just when I need to start working overtime on my other job of A/V installations after getting fired by NCS for no good reason other than greed, I now have to take off a minimum of sixty days without leaving their house to try and get over this recent need to binge-drink-until-inundated issue I had developed. In my head I still thought that I didn’t really have a problem and that it was just a precaution out of fear. But wrong again, idiot! The withdraw symptoms were much more severe than I had expected and the first several nights were filled with no sleep, vivid visions, tremors, sweating, lack of concentration, appetite loss, and headaches. Prior to this happening I hadn’t been sleeping well for many weeks. The only time I was sleeping was when I was hammered, and it had been many moons since I hadn’t done so. (February 25th, 2020 will be one year since I stopped drinking alcohol completely and completely sober.The marijuana is now by prescription of my doctor.) Ironically it was Jillian that kept me from drinking so much when we were together and when we broke up it became my undoing. There was no better buzz in The Galaxy than her. Drinking became pointless. I had her. What else did I need to feel complete? Absolutely, positively, nothing, it appears. She made the problems of reality disappear in a puff of smoke. I still don’t understand how she did that so fast? She must be a sorceress or something and put a spell on me or something (sarcasm). I am still in absolute shock it never worked out. My heart decomposed to dust and blew away with the wind when she said goodbye and I knew it was coming, too. But that’s what curses are, I guess. A tidally locked fate of never being able to go the stars with the only one you ever wanted to. I asked her one day if she were to go on a spaceship for a journey around the universe to my home planet, what food would you bring with you? Her number one answer was the same as mine. Peanut butter. Talk about your cosmic matches for God’s sake (lol). Cruising the stars in style with a few thousand tubs of Peter Pan in tow is a pretty hilarious thought. (I’m quite certain that she would not have agreed with the Peter Pan.) I don’t have a spaceship! I was just making a joke. At least I don’t think I do (hmm)? It would have been a dimensional mirror any way, spaceships take too long. Way too long. I spent that entire first week of the recovery process trying to keep my mind as busy as possible while I was on lockdown. I was flooding my brain with exceptionally difficult subjects to tire my mind out, specifically cosmological astrophysics material. I was drawn to it for some reason. I had been studying science and spirituality in depth every day for the past few years in conjunction with writing the story, but this was different. I was absorbing much more than normal, and the material seemed to feel easier to understand. At one point I turned to running three different monitors simultaneously all with varying levels of volume just to increase my intake. I felt like I was downloading an update or something. Things were making sense. Seven days in, head deep in withdraw, and I have the eureka moment! I call it The Epiphany. I finally understood why I had been drawn to these specific subjects all these years. It was like I was connecting the millions of dots I had studied and when I stepped back, I suddenly saw the whole picture of our reality and my existence. The main screen that I wasn’t using in that moment happened to have an episode of Hogan’s Hero live on cable, a very popular show I know of, but never watched, on a channel I rarely have on. If you know me, you know I like to multitask when relaxing to an epic degree. The more monitors the better, I always say. The second I had that lightbulb moment and figured it out I saw Schultz stand up from a bench, look at the camera and exclaim in his German accent, “Hmmmmm Good observation!” So, you know, coincidence. I almost relieved myself right there on the floor, because in that moment it sounded like he was talking to me directly through the TV from the past. The astronomically impossible chance that he was to say that exact phrase at that exact moment on that exact channel that I happened to be watching, clearly taking notice of what I had realized, was too great of a statistical improbability. I almost passed out! I couldn’t’ catch my breath. I couldn’t even move. I was in utter shock. Just as I thought that, there was a flash in the room. I woke up on the floor. So much for almost passing out, I thought. But then something wasn’t right when I came to. I felt anxious, unsettled, and uncomfortable as if the air had been sucked out of the room and it smelled like overcooked cheesesteaks or something. I had this really weird need to text message Neil DeGrasse Tyson to ensure I was in the right reality and not an alternate one and I did so with an encoded message. I needed him to verify and he did by not responding right away. I knew if he was to respond right away and I mean right away?I was in the wrong place. I was here looking for Jillian to give her a letter. The Letter. I won’t go into why I know that now, it will take too long. But I will explain it another time or you can just read it in Judgement later this year. I also had an even stranger desire to talk to the following people as further proof if necessary: Leonardo DiCaprio, Chris Martin (from Coldplay), and Jim Carrey. In the vision of the other realities or future, we are all very close. I’m sort of “well-known” there, I guess you could say. Take a guess, but don’t ask why. Like I said, it’s a long story. You’ll read it in Judgement, so don’t worry because that will be very soon (to clarify I mean the book of Judgement, NOT the event, at least I hope not). When I walked to the stairs to go tell my parents and family what I had figured out in their basement? I had this unbelievablywicked sense of déjà vu, and got really dizzy. Really, really dizzy. I sat down on the steps trying to catch my composure and I almost threw up. What in the Hell is wrong with me? I did my best to shake it off, because I was so excited to tell them what I had figured out, but I was quite disoriented walking up the stairs. It felt like my brain was sloshing around another dimension and just fell back into my head. When I stepped through the door of their basement, I noticed what looked like a clear change in the hue and amplitude of the light between the two rooms. It was mismatched or something. It’s hard to explain unless you saw it. It was a very subtle change and it’s possible you may not have noticed if not looking at it from the angle I was. That was so puzzling at the time until I later figured it out. When I walked through the kitchen, I got this weird sense I was being watched. It didn’t frighten me, but more like made me feel uneasy. I believe it is the reason I had felt so unsettled when I first woke up. Too intent on telling my family the news to care about fear of the unknown I had them all turn their phones on to record what I had come up with. A basis for the unified theory of reality. The Holy Grail of science and spirtuality, merging the two worlds in perfect harmony for eternity. I explained in broad detail that I had just “hit the jackpot” using those words specifically at the time. I was on cloud 9 rattling off what was going to happen in the future. And The List was long. Meeting Neil DeGrasse Tyson and other famous physicists and scientists, healing humanity, not needing money and a host of other absolutelyridiculous claims, even by my lofty standards. I thought if this all winds up being right? Then these videos from different perspectives, recorded by each one of my family, as witness on the day it happened? Will be worth a pretty penny for The Plan. The information I had deduced about the structure of reality wasn’t worth money by itself (perhaps in a formal theoretical paper), but it would open the door to so much more understanding for the science on Earth and ultimately would lead to new technology. This is an essential component of The Plan I came up with. Information is paramount to progression. Make it free and you can start a movement. The kind that can change the world in a blink, a few of which are outlined in my visions. For the record I do not hold all The Keys, only The Maps to the treasures themselves. After that night of going over things as best as I could with them, I proceeded to go back to dictation and writing and I unloaded these new scenes and images I had about using a mirror to travel between dimensions and realities. And there were a lot of dimensions and realities to explore. A Hell of a lot. I even sketched The Device that was used to operate the mirror like it was the freaking Flux Capacitor from Back to the Future or something (later I would have a real model crafted). The Door, or portal you walked through, was taller than the normal human and a little wider than a typical door you would see. It was outlined in this iridescent coating that almost looked like crystal-clear ice. The luster of the mirror’s surface resembled the smoothness and reflectivity of one you might see on a NASA telescope. It shimmered and slightly pulsated with this tiny glow of excited, energetic radiation. The gate was always in a specific place on each planet in every dimension and you could tell by the unique environments that they were housed. Most of them were like shrines or temples. The control device allowed you to bring up a destination that you could see in real-time on the Door itself that served as a preview monitor before you stepped through. Precautionary I would assume because who wants to step blindly through an interdimensional portal, right (winks)? Instantaneous interdimensional and interplanetary travel. Neat! I had seen the mirror from this new vision of fantastic adventures once before…in Hell. They were everywhere in that wretched place and now I understand that they served more than one purpose: to allow the damned to gaze upon the reflection of their eternal punishment and forone-waytransportation. There is no escape from Hell. Ever. It’s only been done once and guess who it was? I’d bet those mirrors are recording devices for all that suffering, too! I guess punctuality, thoroughness, and efficiency are important to one’s non-stop pain. Don’t be late to your next meeting…err…I mean beating! What else is there to do in Hell? When I almost finished writing down the major details from that night, something caught my attention about the dissimilarities of the mirrors. And then it hit me! There are two Hell’s! Physical and spiritual. In the first vision (spiritual), I was suffering psychological torture for my choices. I was one of the damned. In the second vision (physical) of Hell, I was walking around, observing, like a visitor or even worse…as the owner. I was responsible for the Armageddon and I made The Deal with The Devil in the one vision, so I probably run the place after it was done (read the excerpt from Judgement I have included with this email if you wish to know more about The Deal). The punishments were particularly gruesome and nightmarishly horrible, not made for eyes to witness. You got the feeling that it was a private matter. Physical Hell. Hell, for the worst of our kind, get to experience both in horrifically perfect detail. They win a package deal. Lucky them! In the physical you are tortured in custom ways depending on the sins of the sinner. A tailored-fit experience to damnation. No two punishments are alike. And each time you die from The Pain or The Fear, you are resurrected to start it all over. And, yes, it IS possible to be scared to death. The structure of the realm is very similar to the descriptions from Dante’s Inferno and I would recommend reading it if you plan on going there. Might as well know how to get around your new eternal home. Good luck with that, by the way! I’m sure you’ll enjoy it just like I did! From what I’ve seen and experienced, trust me, you’ll “fall” in love with the place. This continues for a specific amount of eternity proportionate to the suffering you caused and when the debt is paid? You move on to round two: spiritual Hell. Come on down! You’re the next contestant on “Screwed.” Now you get to view your bad decisions and the subsequent effects on repeat along with the images of you being frequently tortured to death from many angles, forever! He’s nice enough to record it for you. Over and over and over and over again until you are lucky enough to break mentally and spiritually. Once you finally do and your punishment is served? Even if you repent in honest sorrow for your deeds after allthat, you still get The Door just like I did for my one stupid mistake! No apology necessary, this lesson is on the house. Oh, and want to take a wild guess who the director is of your suffering for your stay in Motel Misery? I’ll give you a hint: It’s not God. He wouldn’t waste His time with you. Trust me! I’ve been there before (The Door SLAMS). After doing research I would venture to assume that if this physical place does exist in our dimension, and I would bet the house that it totally does, it is the place in mythology known as Tartarus. Planet Hell. It might sound like Club Med and it probably has a sizzling nightlife, but I wouldn’t take any detours, accidental or intentional, to this place, if you catch my drift (WINK).

Hi police sketchers of reddit! I'm an American German Cuban who doesn't speak either and would love to see how you guys would imagine me, and also if I'm on point with how I imagine myself.

My eyes can be described as looking sad. I usually have winged eyeliner. Eye color: dark brown Eyebrows: natural medium/ full black eyebrows with very slight arch Chin: small chin, i have an overbite that is barely noticeable unless you're looking at my profile which is very slightly more noticeable Mouth: full lips with a small Cupid's bow Nose: small nose that frames my face. Is very slightly buttoned at the tip Ears: noticeably tiny ears lol Hair color: dark brown Hair style: shoulder length, I have small baby hairs on the side of my forehead Facial hair: n/a Skin tone: porcelain/ borderline pale Piercings: Tattoos: neck tattoo of a sacred heart wrapped in a small smoke flame with light rays illuminating from the heart coming from the heart that extend to the tip of my jaw, around my neck and flowers on the outside of the rays which are more down/to the side of my neck.

2020.02.09 16:00 PoseidonInChainsNative language profile yay or nay?
I've recently bitten the bullet and joined OkCupid, but I found it weird and unnatural to write my profile in English. So I went ahead and wrote some stuff in my native language German, which made it lot easier to sound informal, natural and funny. On the other hand I live in a fairly cosmopolitan place (Berlin) that probably has a fair number of non-German-speakers as well. So I'm wondering if I made the right call. Maybe there are some German speakers here who can chime in on this? Is it worth it sounding more stilted and unnatural in order to extend one's target audience to expats in your experience?
