2020.09.22 14:47 TheRomanPredator Saturday Night in Sin City Episode 3

Nigel McGuinness: Hello ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to Saturday Night in Sin City, we’re in for an action packed night tonight, and we’re getting underway with one of the World Championship Semi Finalists, Samoa Joe.
Samoa Joe: You are looking at the biggest sole threat to any man, woman or team on this roster, you are looking at the Samoan Submission Machine… You are looking at the inaugural SSPW World Heavyweight champion. Now, next week, I will be tasked with dismembering the man known as Finn Balor, something I have succeeded in doing multiple times across our careers. Finn, you better know what you’re walking into boy, as there’s no Demon bullshit to help you here. It’s just me, and you in the squared circle, going toe to toe until one of us can’t fight anymore, and I’m ready to go all night. And once I’ve finished pulling Finn Balor limb from limb, I’ve got the challenge of either Shinsuke Nakamura or Seth Rollins. Now Shinsuke take no offence to this, but I hope Rollins beats you next week. I’ve been counting down the days until I could get just me and Seth in the ring for a long time now. As we have unfinished business. I hope you’re the one I make tap the fuck out to become SSPW world champion. See you a week from tomorrow.
Excalibur: Powerful words from Samoa Joe, and you gotta say he’s got to be one of the favourites to become world champion at Full Ignition. Now earlier this week on Social Media, you may have seen our general manager Shawn Michaels announced that Taynara Conti and Tegan Nox would face off this week, with the winner facing Bianca Belair next week to announce the next challenger for the champion who will be crowned the next night at Full Ignition.
Nigel McGuinness: Yes I’m really looking forward to this match. The women’s division at SSPW has been competitive right for the word go. I can tell the champion, whether that is Kay Lee Ray or Asuka is not going to be able to afford any days off if they want to keep hold of their championship.
Excalibur: I agree, now it's time to get underway with the action tonight, its Tegan Nox vs Taynara Conti, next!
The match starts off quickly paced, with Tegan Nox hitting Taynara Conti unaware as soon as the bell sounded, Tegan then proceeds to work down the legs of Conti, trying to take away the kicks from her arsenal. Tegan thinks she has the match won early on and goes for the shiniest wizard. However, Conti is able to duck out of the way and take Nox down. The match then swings back and forth, with neither woman managing to truly take control of the match. However, it later becomes apparent that the missed shiniest wizard slightly hurt the braced leg of Tegan Nox, Taynara Conti realises that it's hindering Nox within the match and starts to work the leg. Eventually she’s able to lock in the figure 4 leglock and forces Nox to submit.
Excalibur: Wow, what a match! And we’ll see Bianca Belair vs Taynara Conti next week, what a match that will be.
Nigel McGuinness: Yes I agree, now we’re heading backstage, where Charly Caruso is standing by with Chris Hero.
Charly Caruso: Thank you Nigel, now I’m here with one of the competitors of the SSPW National Title fatal fourway at Full Ignition. Chris, many people here see you as a real outlier in this match. With the other men having a much higher chance of winning the match according to the bookies, how are you preparing for the title shot?
Chris Hero: When I look at the other competitors who are in the match a week from sunday. I see a bluechip prospect who doesn't know what it's like to compete in a title match. I see a man who although may have the skillset to become champion, does not have the aptitude or desire, and at full ignition he’s going to be face to face with that reality. And then we got Kenta. A man who always seems second best. Whether it’s Shinsuke Nakamura, Finn Balor or Samoa Joe. Well in SSPW that’s no different. Only you’ll be second to me Chris Hero, and I’m perfectly happy to introduce you to that fact tonight.
Nigel McGuiness: Wow, so Chris Hero laying down the challenge tonight for Kenta! We’ll have to see if he responds. Before this match becomes official. Now, next up we have a chance for two tag teams who didn’t have the best starts to their careers in SSPW, we have the Usos vs the Viking Raiders.
Excalibur: Yes, last week we saw the Viking Raiders lose what looked to be a win already in the bag vs moustache mountain. But rash decisions made late in the match ended up losing their space in the title match at Full Ignition.
Nigel McGuinness: Yes, and the Usos were in a losing effort against Moustache Mountains opposition at Full Ignition, the Lucha Bros. Tonight we see the Viking Raiders take on the Usos to try and determine who may be the contenders for the tag team titles after full Ignition.
The match starts off with Ivar charging at Jey Uso, clearly still enraged by last week's performance. Ivar then proceeds to throw Jey round the ring, until Jimmy manages to tag himself in when Jey flies past him. Jimmy then tries to fight back into the match, but Erik and Ivar utilize the ring as Jey Uso is still recovering on the apron. The Viking Raiders look to finish the match with a double powerbomb, but as they bring Jimmy Uso up, the lights go out, and an R appears on the screen. Once again, video footage is seen of a house on a street, however this time the camera is much closer to the house, looking through the window Jey Usos wife and two kids can be seen. Jey screams, What the fuck, thats my kids, thats my kids what the fuck. The lights come back on and Jey and Jimmy are surrounded by the three masked men who attacked Jeff Cobb. The Usos try to take it to the men before they can strike, but the numbers game becomes too much. The men knock Jimmy Uso to the floor and then grab Jey and handcuff him to the ropes. They then make him watch as they slam Jimmy into the steps. Suddenly Jeff Cobb runs down to the ring. But the lights flicker and turn off, when they turn back on the assailants are gone.
The camera comes backstage, where Ric Flair is seen leaving one of the private locker rooms, “Good luck next week kid, I’ll be taking a front row seat at commentary to watch. I hope you rethink my offer, after all, it is best for business.” As Flair walks off, it is shown that the locker room belonged to Seth Rollins, as indicated by a sign by the door.
Nigel McGuinness: Wow, this episode of Saturday Night In Sin City gets more intense by the minute. Next we have a sit down interview between Charly Caruso and one of the competitors in the women's title match at full ignition. Charly Caruso is with Kay Lee Ray, next!
Charly Caruso: Cheers Nigel, so yes I am here with Kay Lee Ray, so Kay, I have to ask, many are considering Asuka to have the advantage in the match at Full Ignition due to her advantage from an in ring perspective. How are you planning to counter this?
Kay Lee Ray: Charly, Sin City Pro Wrestling is the land of opportunity, the next generation of wrestling. This division is not going to be built on the stars of yester-year, such as Asuka. Next Sunday, Asuka is going to find out that this division belongs to Kay Lee Ray, just as Paige did last week.
Charly Caruso: Ok, what do you believe of the rumours that a major competitor for the women's division is going to be unveiled at Full Ignition.
Kay Lee Ray: Irrelevant, everyone in the women's division is going to have to learn to bow down to Kay Lee Ray, whether they like it or not.
Kay Lee Ray stands up to walk off but comes face to face with Asuka. The two lock eyes, but don’t come to blows. Both walk away from the stand-off.
Nigel McGuinness: Wow, things are really heating up for the women's title match at Full Ignition. Now in the ring we have Big E, who I believe has something to say.
Big E: I am the future of Sin City. I am it’s end, I’m here to destroy and I challenge anyone in the back to fight me to prove that they can indeed stop the inevitable end.
A couple seconds pass as Big E looks directly at the ramp. Apollo Crews theme hits and he comes down to the ring, not breaking eye contact with Big E the entire way.
The ring sounds and Crews launches himself at Big E, but Big E just slams him to the ground. Crews does a kip up but just gets flattened by a lariat from E. Big E then lands a big splash but instead of going for the pinfall, deadlifts Crews onto his shoulders and hits the Big Ending. He then orders the ref to count a five count, which Crews cannot kick out from. Big E walks around the ring with a maniacal look in his eye as Taz grabs a mic and runs into the ring to interview him.
Taz: Wow, what a performance dude, what do you have to say about it?
Big E: I told the roster now one could stop the inevitable end, and tonight I proved that. This ending is Inevitable.
Taz: Definitely, now dude, if you need help making your way in sin city, just give me a call. I’ll be in touch.
Taz hands Big E his business card and leaves the ring. Big E looks at it for a second and then takes it to the back.
Sometimes to get to your final destination you must go back to where it all began. While the Invisible Man is everyone and everywhere, he always has an origin. And mine is away from the shining lights of Sin City. But next week, I will return to the place where my career, my life started, I will return home. Darby Allin skates off into the distance.
Bobby Roode is sitting in catering, looking dejected. Ric Flair sees him and sits at his table. “Bobby, I feel like this hasn’t been the best start for you in SSPW, and maybe I’m partly to blame for that. I got to be honest within you, I see someone who could be the face of this country. As I was back in the day. And I’m willing to help you to get there, now you don’t have to answer now but just think about it, we’ll be in touch.”
Excalibur: Wow, we have to wonder what the intentions are between Ric Flair, Bobby Roode and Seth Rollins at the moment.
Nigel McGuinness: Yes definitely, but now we shift back to the National title picture, obviously earlier tonight we had Chris Hero lay down the challenge to face Kenta, one of the other competitors within the National Title match at Full Ignition, now we haven’t heard from Kenta all night, so Chris Hero is now in the ring, to challenge him again.
Chris Hero: Kenta, come out here now you coward, come face me in the ring.
Chris Hero looks around, waiting for Kenta to come down to the ring.
Chris Hero: COME ON YOU COWARD
Chris Hero is suddenly hit from the back of the head, it's Kenta, he picks up Hero for the GTS but before he manages it he’s hit with a diving dropkick from El Hijo Del Fantasma. Kenta and El Hijo then start brawling ringside as Hero recovers from the blow to the back of the head. He see’s Kenta and El Hijo ringside and goes to jump over the top rope, midway through the run-up he’s joined by Murphy and the two jump over the top rope onto Kenta and El Hijo. Hero and Murphy then get up and start brawling themselves, with Murphy throwing Hero into the ring steps. Michaels runs out with members of security and the roster to try and break up the brawl. Some members of security manage to contain Murphy within the ring but he breaks free and launches himself onto a large group trying to contain a large brawl between Hero and Kenta. Michaels grabs a mic “If you guys wanna fight so much before your title match a week from sunday, fine, you can do it in a tornado tag team match next saturday. But you cannot lay a hand on each other before then. Am I understood?”
All 4 men nod, and then walk backstage, Lucha Bros and Moustache Mountain stay in the ring, as the main event match up between Tyler Bate and Rey Fenix is next.
The match starts with a feeling out process between Bate and Fenix. However, Fenix soon realises that he would not beat Bate on the mat so chooses to use his superior speed and agility to start striking Bate. Bate rolls to the outside to re-strategise with Trent Seven but is quickly hit with a Topei Suicida from Rey Fenix. The ref starts the 10 count but both Bate and Rey Fenix are back in the ring before a six count. Fenix goes for a running hurricanrana but Bate manages to dodge it and Rey crashes to the floor. Bate then takes control of the match and tries to disrupt the speed and agility of Rey Fenix by working down the legs. Bate manages to lock the Boston Crab on Rey Fenix and he looks close to tapping, but Pentagon Jr jumps up onto the ring apron and distracts the ref while Fenix taps out and Bate lets go. Trent Seven runs up behind Pentagon Jr and attempts to hit him with a german suplex. Pentagon reads it however, and counters into a reverse frankensteiner onto the outside. Tyler Bate goes to get out the ring to check on Trent but Rey Fenix rolls him up and covers him for the 3 count. Lucha Bros celebrate within the ring while Bate checks on the unconscious Trent Seven. Taz goes into the ring to ask the Lucha Bros what stipulation they are choosing for their title match at Full Ignition.
Taz: Fenix, congratulations on the big singles win. Obviously this now means that you can choose the stipulation for your tag team title match at Full Ignition, so are you ready to disclose the stipulation at this time.
Fenix: Moustache Mountain, en Full Ignition nos enfrentarás a los Hermanos Lucha, en un partido de Escaleras y Sillas
Taz: Am I right in thinking that is a Tables Ladders and Chairs match?
Pentagon Jr: Sí, y estamos listos para destruir la Montaña Moustache
Lucha Bros stare down at Tyler Bate, who’s in the midst of carrying Trent Seven to the back.

These inline skates will feel more like ice hockey skates for skaters who’ve also played ice hockey and make it easy to cross between them. As these are skates that can be molded thermally, they can be taken to your local hockey store and baked to the best possible fitness.

What is your level of ability?

When selecting the right roller hockey stick, your skill level is a significant factor. The three stages of skills are beginning, middle, and advanced. Experts can be both efficient and interchangeable.
Start skaters and leisure skaters are not the same kind of skate that an experienced skater wants. You just need to worry about how often you play and how often. Suppose you don’t know where you’d be level-sighted. Go with beginners’ skates when this is only an occasional thing. When you get better, and you’re going to skate fast, then you can use specialized skates.

Skate length

First of all, how does my shoe size fit with skates? The first question anyone asks.’. A skate usually is 1.5 inches (US) less than the size of an adult’s shoe and one full size less than your child’s size. A grown-up with a 10-US-size pump should try 8.5 skates.

Skate width

The width of the hockey skate is expressed in letters and may include one of two nomenclature width schemes. The scale is between the smallest and the broadest. A classic system of rankings is C, D, E, EE, and a simple, reliable, and broadly helps in preventing is N, R, and W. Many players are suited to D or R skates in the distance.

Skates for heat molding

At the beginning of the 2000s, heat mounting skates became normal. Before the heat molding process, hockey players will select a skate that fits their skates as best they could from their box and then remove the skates throughout 10–20 skates, literally through blood, sweat, and tears. Huge blisters were not uncommon, foot cramps, and bleeding.
Luckily, the manufacturers put the technology on the skates, and new technologies in a hockey boat became common, and the boot could be placed in a small oven for a couple of minutes so that it can be softened. After you get the kick out of the oven, put your foot on, and let it shape your foot for 5-10 minutes. This does not guarantee that there will be no break-in time, but take that away from me, that reduces the time required for the skates to get the right feeling on their feet, and when done correctly, it can typically become a bubble-free company.

Conclusion

The best inline hockey skates you can get are very dependent on the type of skater you are as well as on what you need as a human. Advanced skaters can go along with more durable, heavy inline skates, while beginners can have lighter and more versatile skates.
In the end, you have to pick a pair of skates that have the strength and comfort you need to remain competitive.

2020.09.22 13:26 RoomTemperatureMess [HM] Snooty and the Feast

Hi all! This is my first post on the group; my first post on Reddit ever, actually. I recently took up creative writing as a hobby and wrote my own take on the classic fairytale 'Beauty and The Beast' as part of a creative writing exercise. Let me know what you think.

GAH! Not again!”
Grumbling, the Beast removed a smoking, charcoal-black rectangle from the oven. He slammed the ceramic oven tray heavily onto the marbled counter, pulled the polka-dot oven mitts off his large paws and flung them across the kitchen in a blind fury, where they almost hit a passing servant in the face.
“Everything going alright, your Highness?” the servant squeaked, picking up the discarded mitts. “Beth is getting impatient for her dinner.”
The Beast growled in frustration as he clumsily leafed through the chunky recipe book, tattered and yellowed with age, that had been sitting on the counter. “I don’t get it, Lucy,” he muttered. “I just don’t get it. I did everything the recipe said. EVERYTHING!” The last word was almost a roar, and he slammed the book back down on the counter, startling the maid several steps back. “Fry the onions. Simmer the tomato. Bake in the oven for forty minutes. And yet…” He thrust a paw at the burnt mess sitting on the counter. “Does that look like a lasagna to you?”
Lucy coughed a little from the thick smoke that hung in the air. “It doesn’t look that bad.”
“Would you eat it?”
“No, your Highness.”
“Then it’s a failure.” He heaved a sigh. “I’ll never break this curse. I’ll be stuck as this ferocious, hairy thing forever.
“Oh don’t say that,” said Lucy, a sympathetic look on her round, pink face. “You’ve still got three days.”
Three days!” the Beast roared, making Lucy flinch. “How can I get that woman to compliment my cooking in three days? She’ll never eat this. She didn’t even like the oatmeal I made her this morning, and that was my best work yet.”
“Oh, that reminds me, I’m almost done scraping the burnt bits off the oatmeal pot, so you should be able to use it again tomorrow,” Lucy said.
“Oh, joy,” the Beast muttered. He slumped down at the large table, burying his large furry head in his paws. “It’s no use, Lucy. There’s just no pleasing her.”
Lucy softly patted him between the ears. It was a bit like patting a dog—a very sad dog that didn’t know how to cook. “We could always get her drunk,” she suggested. “Bit of extra wine with dinner. Everything tastes better when you’re sloshed, believe me.” She began to chuckle, then stopped, blushing self-consciously.
“It’s no use,” the Beast muttered. “You remember what the witch said. It has to be a genuine compliment on the quality of food I’ve prepared.” He banged a huge fist down on the table. “Of all the women I could have picked to break this stupid curse, why did I have to pick the food critic?”
~*~*~*~
The Beast was in his armchair by the fireplace when Lucy came in to the living room later that evening, after having brought tea and toast to Beth and apologising for the lack of dinner. He was gazing despondently at the oil painting on the wall across from him which depicted a handsome, golden-haired young man grinning smugly. Lucy had paused at the doorway, silent as a mouse, unwilling to intrude.
“Come in, Lucy,” he said, somehow detecting her presence without turning around. Lucy had grown used to this sort of ‘sixth sense’ he now possessed—it was a bit like how dogs knew who was at the door because of their keen sense of smell. Except it clearly wasn’t a keen sense of smell, otherwise he’d be able to smell his cooking burning.
“There’s no point, Lucy,” he said, as Lucy drew closer. “I can’t possibly learn how to cook in three days. I might as well get used to this.”
Lucy took a deep breath. “I didn’t want to give you these before, your Highness,” she said, “because I was worried you’d be offended. But now… well, I don’t feel I have much of a choice.”
“What are you talking about?” said the Beast. Lucy placed two books on the end table next to him. He glanced sideways at the stack, then, curiosity piqued, picked one up. “Cooking for Dummies?” he read. He looked at the second one. “Cooking for Idiots?”
“And if those don’t work…” Lucy hesitantly handed him a third book. “There’s this one.”
“Cooking for Complete and Utter Nitwits?” the Beast’s furry brow wrinkled in confusion. “But I don’t understand. I don’t think Beth is a Complete and Utter Nitwit… although she certainly acts like one.”
Lucy swallowed. “No, erm, you see… the titles refer to the… the…”
“The what?” said the Beast impatiently.
“The person who’s… doing the cooking, your Highness.” She gulped. “You.”
The Beast was silent for a very long moment. Lucy’s heart hammered. She had never insulted the prince before. He was going to tear her to shreds, she was sure of it.
Suddenly, he roared—with laughter. He laughed until the tears rolled down his cheeks. Lucy, rather taken aback, managed a nervous chuckle.
“Of course! he managed at last. “Of course! All the recipes I’ve tried so far were written for people who’ve got a clue what they’re doing! No wonder I’ve failed. This, my dear Lucy, is exactly what I need!”
~\~*~*~*
“Zero out of five stars,” said Beth, placing her fork down.
“You’ve barely even tasted it,” growled the Beast from the other end of the long dining table. He’d woken at dawn to pore through (well, paw through) Cooking for Dummies, and the recipe for perfect scrambled eggs had seemed easy enough.
“I don’t need to finish the whole thing to know they taste like burnt rubber,” said Beth, turning up her nose at the yellowish-grey blob on the plate.
“They do not,” grumbled the Beast. He took a spoonful himself, but couldn’t remember how eggs were meant to taste, and has no idea if Beth was in fact correct. “The eggs are fine. You’re just snooty. Nothing pleases you, not even the meal I slaved over all morning.”
“I am not snooty!” Beth snapped, glaring down the length of the table. “It’s my job to be critical of what I eat, even if it is prepared by a dog.”
“I’m not a dog,” the Beast growled, pausing to dislodge a flea from his left ear, “I’m a beast!”
“Same bloody thing!” said Beth, standing up. “I’m not going to sit here and pretend to like your bad quality food. I’m going for a walk.”
She left in a huff and headed for the door to the unkempt garden, no doubt looking for an escape route (she wouldn’t find one—it wasn’t that easy to break through to the Outside). The Beast was left alone in the enormous, empty dining room. He sighed and brought the recipe book out of his coat pocket, glaring at its bright, glossy cover.
He threw Cooking for Dummies in the bin
~*~*~*~
The salad he made for Beth’s luncheon had been a limp, soggy affair, with a ‘zesty’ vinaigrette that tasted like a mouse had peed in it. Beth had given it one out of five stars, only because “it wasn’t burnt”. The Beast had remained in his seat long after she’d left, pondering how someone could possibly burn a salad. Perhaps it was something a Complete and Utter Nitwit would do, he mused.
He threw Cooking for Idiots in the bin.
The spaghetti and meatballs he made for Beth’s dinner were no better. The meatballs all coagulated in the pan to form one enormous, formidable meatblob that looked like the alien monster from a low-budget science fiction film.
He threw Cooking for Complete and Utter Nitwits in the bin.
~*~*~*~
That night, after Lucy had given Beth her supper, she did not go down to the living room, but went straight to bed. It broke her heart to see the Beast so glum every evening, and after the events of the day he was sure to be gloomier than ever.
He’d been such a proud, smug little man before the curse, she remembered. He’d been picky with his food, too, like Beth. He even used to give the meals a rating when he’d finished. She bet he and Beth would get along marvellously if he was human.
She lay back on her pillows and lost herself in reverie. Imagine if the Beast became human again, and he and Beth fell in love! She’d surely forget all about being kidnapped and being forced to eat his horrible cooking, once she’d laid eyes on his handsome face and golden curls.
All the household staff would come back, too—the staff that had fled on that stormy night when the curse took hold—and the old ruined house would be full of life again! Her fancy popped like a bubble when she remembered that there were only two days remaining before the anniversary of the curse, when it would be stuck forever—his birthday.
That night, he had turned a starving beggar woman away from his doorstep, not wanting to ruin the mood of his big coming-of-age party. That beggar woman had turned out to be a witch. Of course she bloody had. Honestly, sometimes Lucy felt like she was a character in one of those stupid fairytales. Why did that witch have to pick on him, of all people? All young men were like that, weren’t they? Caring only about themselves, not giving a toss about some ratty old woman on the doorstep, begging for scraps?
There wouldn’t have been a scrap to give her, anyway. He’d already eaten all the frozen pizza.
He hadn’t known it was frozen pizza, of course—had he known, he would have turned his nose up at it, the way Beth had at her eggs that morning. It had been a little joke amongst the kitchen staff. His Highness, so picky with food, had devoured that cheap frozen meal, claiming it was the best thing he’d ever eaten. The laughter down in the kitchens that night had soon turned to shrieks of terror at the menacing creature that had lumbered frantically down there to hide his hideous new form from his terrified guests.
She thought again of the witch’s curse that had echoed through the halls that night, muttering the lines to herself in the dark. “With thine own hands, prepare a meal…”
Lucy sat up in bed, beaming with excitement. “I’ve got it!”
~*~*~*~
“So you’re telling me,” said the Beast, raising a skeptical, furry eyebrow, “I don’t need to actually cook the food? Just prepare it? Why didn’t you tell me this before?
“I only thought of it last night,” explained Lucy, tending to the sizzling bacon in the pan. “And besides, you heard the curse as well as I did. You could have looked for a loophole too.”
“You’re right,” he replied, in considerably better spirits this morning after Lucy had told him her idea. “And besides, it’s not as if I need a lot of time to make this work. Surely just one meal will suffice.”
“I hope so,” said Lucy. “Here, plate this up. Make it nice and presentable. Remember: toast first, then bacon, then egg, then the hollandaise sauce.” She gestured to each pot and pan in turn.
The Beast’s clumsy paws were, however, not designed for assembling breakfasts, and the result looked less like an Eggs Benedict and more like an earthquake at brunch.
Lucy hid her dismay as she surveyed the plate. “I suppose it will have to do,” she said. “Besides, it’s the taste that’s important. I’ll wake Beth, shall I?”
~*~*~*~
“Zero out of five stars for presentation,” Beth announced.
“Oh, come on!” snarled the Beast. “It’s not that bad. Besides, who cares how it looks? What are you doing to do, take a photo of it?”
“I usually do,” said Beth primly.
The Beast refrained from rolling his eyes. “Just taste it,” he urged. “I worked very hard to prepare it this morning.”
Beth eyed the plate critically, and sighed, poking it with her fork. “Oh, all right. If you worked so hard to—eek!” She shrieked suddenly, her fork flying out of her hand and landing on the floor.
“What now?”
“There’s a hair in it!” Grimacing, Beth pointed a manicured fingernail at the intruder. “Right there. In the sauce.” Sure enough, there was a long, ruddy brown hair, coiled up in the hollandaise sauce.
“Can’t you just eat around the hair?”
“No! I’m not going to eat something with dog hair in it. It’s unhygienic.
“It’s not dog hair,” growled the Beast, insulted. “It’s my hair!”
“Same thing,” muttered Beth, getting up and storming out of the dining room like she did at every meal.
The Beast groaned in annoyance. He had been so close! Of course he had to go and get a hair in it. He was always shedding these days; he really ought to have been more careful.
There was still lunch and dinner, after all. And tomorrow.
~*~*~*~
“Just grab a sprig of parsley from the herb garden and put it on top,” Lucy had instructed, after checking for stray hairs in the steaming bowl of pasta carbonara that the Beast had just scooped. “You do know which one’s parsley, right?”
“Of course I do,” he replied coolly. “I’m not a Complete and Utter Nitwit.”
Evidently he was, because Beth turned her nose up at the meal. “I do not eat coriander,” she announced.
Coriander. Dammit, thought the Beast. He should have swallowed his pride and let Lucy see the herb first. “Just pick it off.”
“No.” Beth pushed the plate away with finality, and arose for her afternoon walk. This time, however, she paused by the door and glanced very briefly in the beast’s direction with an odd expression. Then she was gone.
~*~*~*~
Dinner was Lucy’s famous seafood risotto. She hadn’t made it in a very long time, but it had been one of the prince’s favourites. Lucy had watched as the Beast stirred the last of it and carefully ladled it into the bow, checking meticulously for stray hairs.
So far, so good, he thought, watching Beth down the length of the table. For one thing, she was eating. Her face was impassive as she chewed. Occasionally, she glanced up from her plate and met his eyes with a thoughtful expression. Finally, she scooped up the last mouthful of risotto. The Beast couldn’t believe his eyes. She’d finished the whole meal, and hadn’t complained once!
Beth hesitated. “It was good,” she said.
The Beast pricked up his ears. “Good?”
“More than good. Absolutely delicious,” said Beth. “Best thing I’ve ever eaten.”
This was it, the Beast thought, standing up and inadvertently knocking over his chair in excitement. They’d done it! Beth had finally given him a genuine compliment on the quality of food he’d prepared! The curse was broken. He’d transform back into a human any minute now.
Any minute now…
He frowned, looking down at his enormous paws. They didn’t show the slightest sign of changing into the smooth, slender human hands he once had.
In fact, he didn’t feel very different at all.
He glared up at Beth. “You’re lying.”
“I’m not!” she insisted. “It really was the best—oh, alright, you got me.” She sighed, leaning back in her seat. “I’m sorry. The texture was like glue and there was too much salt.”
“Then why did you tell me you liked it? Do you pity me?”
“No,” said Beth quickly. “No, of course not. I just… well, on my walk today, I was thinking… I have been rather snooty. You’ve been working so hard on these meals, after all, and even though they’ve all been terrible… you kept trying. The last two even showed some promise.” She smiled encouragingly. “I didn’t want you to give up.”
“It’s too late,” said the Beast quietly, turning and walking away.
~*~*~*~
“Didn’t like it? Didn’t like my famous seafood risotto?” Lucy furiously scrubbed Beth’s plate in the kitchen sink down in the servant’s quarters. “Too much salt?! Texture like glue?!”
The Beast, seated at the large wooden table, shrugged.
“Oh, well, Lucy sighed. “We’ve still got tomorrow. I’ll make something simple. There must be something…”
“Forget it,” muttered the Beast. “It’s no use. Everything we’ve tried has failed. This curse is truly unbreakable.”
“Oh, please don’t say that,” said Lucy. “We’ll figure it out. There’s a whole day ahead, yet! We’re so close!”
But Lucy just couldn’t cheer the Beast up, no matter how she tried. Miserably, he went up to bed, and she returned to her own quarters, the matter of what meal to prepare for Beth weighing heavy on her mind.
~*~*~*~
The Beast didn’t come down to the kitchen that morning. Lucy tried to coax him down, telling him that there was no way he could mess up preparing porridge under her watchful eye, but he refused to get out of bed.
Deciding it best to leave him alone for the time being, Lucy cooked some scrambled eggs for Beth (much closer to a sunny yellow than a yellowish-grey this morning) and served her breakfast in the dining room.
“Where’s the beast this morning?” asked Beth.
“His Highness,” said Lucy pointedly, still a little sore from the news that her famous risotto had gone unappreciated, “is unwell.”
“Oh,” said Beth, poking her scrambled eggs with a fork. “I hope I didn’t offend him last night. He’s awfully sensitive about his cooking, isn’t he?”
“You might say that,” said Lucy as she poured Beth’s tea.
“But I can’t help the way I am,” said Beth, shrugging. “Only the finest quality food suits my taste. Still,” she mused, with a mouthful of egg, “It seems he’s really trying to impress me with his cooking. He really wants to win my heart, doesn’t he?”
Not your heart, thought Lucy, but the curse allowed her to say no more.
~*~*~*~
The Beast didn’t come down to prepare lunch, or dinner, no matter how Lucy cajoled. Lucy’s heart sank—he really had given up. Lucy’s vision of the palace bustling with life again seemed more distant than ever.
But though the beast had given up, Lucy had not.
~*~*~*~
It must have been about 10 o’clock at night by the time the Beast grew weary of staying in his room and made his way down to the living room for a change of scenery. Lucy had come down there to pester him about preparing a meal for Beth, but he had sent her away. Besides, she was unlikely to eat anything at this time of night.
As he sat, listening to the hiss and crackle of the fireplace, he heard the door creak open. Thinking it was Lucy come to pester him again, he turned around to tell her off—and stopped.
“Beth?”
“Your Highness,” she said, walking slowly into the room. She was wearing a horrible yellow, frilly dress instead of her usual t-shirt and jeans, and appeared to have done her hair up.
The Beast was rather taken aback. She never called him Your Highness. “What do you want?” he said. “I’m not going to cook for you. Lucy’s been feeding you, hasn’t she?”
“She has,” said Beth. She smiled shyly. “I came down here to… talk.”
The Beast grimaced. “I don’t want to talk to you. And there’s no need to come down here and try to make friends with me. Tomorrow you’ll be free. I’ll be out of your life forever.” He turned his head back toward the fire.
“Well, you see… I don’t think I want that,” said Beth.
“What?”
“Can I sit here?” said Beth, perching awkwardly on the arm of the Beast’s huge leather armchair.
“There’s another chair over there,” grumbled the Beast, but Beth didn’t seem to hear him.
~*~*~*~
Lucy picked her way through the unkempt back lawn in the dark. Her stockings were wet with the evening mist that clung to the long grass, and her feet squelched in their sensible shoes. She shivered. This was no time of night to be out of doors, and a small, selfish part of her wanted to give up as the beast had, to sit by the fire and accept the curse.
“No,” she said to herself, as she finally reached the dilapidated old garage that sat a little ways from the house. Her freezing hands fumbled for the rusty old key that would unlock it. “I must give it one last try.”
There was a family of rats living in the old car, and they seemed to be having some sort of party. After shooing them out and settling herself in, Lucy took a deep breath. It has been a while since she’d broken through the barrier to the Outside — the day before the prince’s coming-of-age party, in fact.
She remembered it well—she and the other cooks had crowded into the car, laughing about the prank. She remembered her heart hammering as they broke into the Outside with an ear-splitting Pop! She remembered the busy streets, the people walking about in their strange clothes, the chill of the frozen-food aisle. They’d even gone through a “Drive-Thru” on the way back, for chips and burgers, the woman in the window eyeing them strangely as she handed them a brown paper bag that was nearly transparent with grease. It had been a good day.
This time, she was alone.
~*~*~*~
“You know,” said Beth, “I’ve had my share of terrible boyfriends in the past.”
The Beast wished she would stop talking. He just wanted to be left alone. Suppressing a groan of frustration, he said, “All right. Tell me about them.”
“Oh, I won’t bore you with the details,” said Beth, waving a hand. (Then why did you mention them in the first place? thought the Beast.) “But I will say this: they never put in any effort for me. Cheap gifts picked up from the dollar store. Ugly flowers—I hate flowers, you know. One of them, in fact, tried to throw me a romantic candlelight dinner*,*” she paused for effect, “with frozen food! I saw the boxes in the bin by the freezer. A frozen lasagna, and a blueberry cheesecake. I can still see the cheesecake, a greyish-purple slab of horror, defrosting on the counter. Can you imagine?”
The Beast could not imagine it. He had heard of pre-packaged frozen meals, of course—they were apparently quite popular in the Outside—but had certainly never tried them. He was surprised to find he was chuckling. “So what did you do?” he asked.
“Why, I stormed out without so much as eating a bite!” Beth exclaimed.
“You should have given the meal a go,” said the Beast. “You might have liked it.”
After a moment, the two burst into laughter.
“My point is,” said Beth, “he didn’t even try to cook something for me himself. In fact, none of my boyfriends have.” She held his gaze. “Except for you.”
Now the Beast was really confused. “But I’m not your boyfriend,” he said.
“No,” said Beth softly. “But you could be.”
“What?”
“You see, nobody has ever gone to this much effort for me before,” she said. “And even though you can’t cook to save your life, I… well, I think I’m in lo—”
“Your Highness!”
Beth and the Beast looked up, startled. Lucy, red-faced and dishevelled, with mousy-grey curls escaping her bonnet, clutched the doorframe and struggled to catch her breath. “In the kitchen,” she managed at last. “Important. Emergency. Now.”
~*~*~*~
“Frozen pizza?” the Beast exclaimed. “Are you out of your mind? She’ll never eat this. She literally just finished telling me a story about how she ended a long-term relationship over a frozen meal. Why in blazes do you think this is going to work?”
“Just trust me,” pleaded Lucy, shoving the box into his hands. “She won’t know. Besides, what have we got to lose? Hurry now, we only have until midnight.”
The Beast shrugged. “Well, if you insist. But I tell you, it’s not going to work. Now, how do I prepare this?” He peered at the box. “Delicious gourmet pizza in twenty minutes,” he read. “So simple, even a Complete and Utter Nitwit can prepare it.”
~*~*~*~
The old grandfather clock showed 11.45 by the time the Beast re-entered the living room, carefully balancing a plate of steaming pizza between his large paws. He still didn’t think this was going to work, but Lucy had seemed so certain for some reason.
“Oh, Beth,” he called gently. “Fancy a midnight feast?”
Beth, who had been sitting sulkily in the large armchair, turned around, and her face lit up. “Goodness, is that pizza?” she said, sniffing the air hungrily. “Did you make it for me?”
“Of course I did,” replied the Beast, setting the plate down on the coffee table near the chair. “That’s why the maid came in earlier….to tell me that I forgot to take it out of the oven.”
Beth laughed. “You were having so much fun talking to me, you forgot that you were cooking for me!”
“Yes, that must have been it,” said the Beast distractedly. “Look, just try a slice, will you?”
He didn’t want to get his hopes up, but couldn’t help it. Beth wordlessly ate slice after slice, a rapturous expression on her face. She even dabbed the crumbs off the plate with a finger when she was done.
“That,” she said emphatically, “was the best meal I have ever eaten in my life.”
The clock struck midnight.
The Beast felt his paws begin to tingle. He felt an odd pulling feeling in his face, as if it were changing shape. Torn between glee at the prospect of having broken the curse, and amusement at the fact that the snooty food critic had complimented a cheap, frozen meal, he began to roar with laughter—the laugh becoming less roar-like as it went on. Beth’s eyes grew wide as the ferocious beast changed into a handsome young man, with golden curls and dark blue eyes, before her.
“It worked! Oh, I knew it would work!” Lucy, who had been hanging around the doorway tentatively, now bounded into the room, tears of joy spilling down her face. She joined hands with the handsome young prince, and they danced in a circle, laughing and whooping with jubilation.
Beth, unused to being ignored in this way, cleared her throat loudly. They stopped dancing; the prince looked at Beth with a slightly disgusted expression on his face. “Yes? What is it?” he said.
“You’re human!” Beth exclaimed, beaming. “I broke the curse! Oh, don’t you see? Now we can be together! …Darling? What is it? Don’t you… don’t you want me?”
“Well, frankly, no,” replied the young prince, sneering. “I just can’t bring myself to be with someone who enjoys frozen pizza.”
“Frozen pizza? What on earth are you—” Her eyes darted to the empty plate, and she gasped in horror, her hand flying to her mouth. “You fiend! You trickster! You—you—” Overcome with anger, she fled from the room.
The prince rolled his eyes. “What a fraud. I can’t believe she ate that garbage*,* but turned up her nose at my cooking—and even your famous risotto.” He turned to Lucy, incredulous. “How on earth did you know that would work?”
Lucy smiled mysteriously. Some things were better off kept secret.

2020.09.22 04:42 Welfare420 Re-Booking Bo Dallas in WWE (Part 2)

They both slowly make their way to their feet and the Wyatt Family comes to ringside. Harper and Rowan try to climb up to get Bo but they get knocked off as Bo keeps fighting. The finish sees Strowman grab the side of the cage and shake it, rattling the cage and sending both men to the floor simultaneously. Therefore, its a draw/no contest.
After that the Wyatt's pursue a new feud with someone else, and then Bo Dallas enters a feud with Rusev for the U.S title...

Rusev and Dallas have a brutal Falls Count Anywhere match that sees Bo end the rivalry with a running Bo-Dog off a terrace through a table. The rest of the night the crowd chants for Bo Dallas, even in the main event.
The feud building to Summerslam is Bo Dallas vs Sami Zayn. Zayn comes out as a heel saying Dallas is a "paper champion", and he only had that opportunity because Vince wanted to hold off the imbeciles in the crowd. Dallas and Zayn have a U.S title match that night with Zayn barely losing. He gets on the mic and demands a shot at Summerslam but Bo refuses. Next week on Raw, IRS (Bo's dad) makes a return in a backstage segment to a huge pop. He's talking to someone and catching up when suddenly Zayn Helluva Kicks him through a nearby window. Medical officials come by but Zayn drags IRS over to a table and demands a title shot. Bo comes from around the corner and charges Zayn but gets sent crashing into a steel wall. Zayn handcuffs him to a pole and makes him watch as he Blue Thunder Bomb's Bo's father through a table. The next week on Raw Bo attacks Zayn during his match so bad that he's threatened with a suspension. He gets a mic and says, "Sami Zayn, you wanted a title shot, you got it. You and me at Summerslam, in a Last Man Standing match!" He tosses the mic and storms off....
Summerslam 2016: Sami Zayn def. Bo Dallas(c) in a Last Man Standing match (25:32); IRS turns on his son
This match is brutal and even draws some blood. We get tables broken, chair shots, they even expose the ring by tearing up the mat at one point. The finish sees Bo and Sami fighting on the top rope with a table in the ring and a ladder bridged outside the ring. Zayn backdrops Bo through the ladder. The ref counts to 9 and Bo rolls off the ladder barely making it to his feet before instantly collapsing again. Zayn gets Bo up and drags him into the ring but Bo reverses the momentum and hits Zayn with a running Bo-Dog. He gets Zayn up for a superplex when IRS comes out and low blows Bo Dallas. The crowd is shocked as Zayn shoves Bo sending him crashing through the table. Bo can't make the 10 count and Sami Zayn becomes U.S champion ending Bo's reign at month 4.
Obviously this feud continues, but the crowd grows even hotter for Bo during the main event scene, constantly chanting his name. On Raw, IRS tells Bo he wants a son he can be proud of, and thats not an idiot running around with a stupid catchphrase...
Clash of Champions 2016: Sami Zayn(c) w/ IRS def. Bo Dallas via pinfall (15:36)
IRS helps Zayn retain by low blowing Dallas while the ref is distracted by Zayn. Zayn turns and Helluva Kicks Dallas for the pin.
Hell in a Cell 2016: Bo Dallas def. Sami Zayn(c) w/ IRS via pinfall in a Hell in a Cell match (20:44)
These guys get another brutal match. We get running Bo-Dog's on the steps, Blue Thunder Bombs off the apron through a table, and even Dallas hitting a running Bo-Dog off the apron while simultaneously kicking the door down onto his father. This proves to be a poor choice as when Dallas is about to pin Zayn, IRS breaks it up and goes for a clothesline. That's when the lights go out, and when they come back on Bray Wyatt charges and plants IRS with a Sister Abigail to a HUGE pop. Dallas gets up and hits Zayn with a running Bo-Dog onto a chair and finishes him off to win back the U.S title to an even bigger pop. Bray and Bo look at each other after and embrace. Bo Dallas is the U.S champion again.
Bo Dallas moves into a series of defenses in what he calls "Bo World Tour". He is the hottest star on Raw, which I say because Miz is on Smackdown and at this period is the hottest wrestler alive. Let's get back to him later.....
Survivor Series 2016: Bo Dallas(c) def. Cesaro via pinfall (16:47)
In a close match, Bo Dallas manages to retain against Cesaro. Each guy kicks out of a finisher but Bo manages to reverse a superplex into a top rope running Bo-Dog to pick up the win.
TLC 2016: Bo Dallas(c) def. Curtis Axel in a TLC match open challenge (20:02)
Axel's fate in this universe....isn't really much better. He gets that lengthy IC title reign, and then I'll give him the WM 31 Andre the Giant memorial battle royal because of his great Axel-Mania gimmick where he never got eliminated from the Royal Rumble. From there have him and Sandow NOT IMPERSONATE HULK HOGAN AND RANDY SAVAGE, but get a short tag title reign. More notable but nothing too great. An average midcarder here, but this match is still important. Bo and Axel have a great brutal match, with Bo barely getting the strap. Bo raises Axel's hand after and Axel gets applauded by the crowd. From there Axel performs as an upper mid carder and his career seems to be turning around....
Royal Rumble 2017: Bo Dallas(c) def. Neville via pinfall (17:29); Curtis Axel eliminates Bo Dallas from the Royal Rumble
Bo and Neville have a great match and then Bo enters the Rumble later on. He has a strong showing like his one back in 2013 but Axel surprisingly eliminates Bo. Bo looks confused, and then applauds Axel before walking off.
Elimination Chamber 2017: Curtis Axel wins a #1 contender's battle royal for the Intercontinental or U.S title; The Miz wins the WWE title Elimination Chamber match
Axel manages another win here to a big pop and announces he will choose who he faces at Fastlane, so he can face them at Wrestlemania. Also the Miz wins the WWE title tonight....
Fastlane 2017: Bo Dallas wants Curtis Axel to choose him
Axel comes out and is about to announce who he wants when Bo Dallas comes out. He says Curtis has earned his respect a lot in the past few months, and he wants to give Axel a great match at Wrestlemania 33. Axel accepts and the two shake hands.
Wrestlemania 33: Curtis Axel def. Bo Dallas(c) via pinfall (19:01); Miz w/ Maryse(c) def. John Cena w/ Nikki Bella via pinfall to retain the WWE title
Bo and Curtis put on a nearly 20 minute match to open the show for the U.S title. Each guy kicks out of two finishers and the finish comes when Axel hits a middle rope Perfect-Plex to win the title. Bo raises his hand after and walks off. Miz also retains against Cena later that night.
Following his WWE title defense, Miz states on Smackdown he's looking for top stars willing to be his security, because he's too big to let the lower card touch him. He says he's already found one and Curtis Axel comes out. Miz applauds him on his win last night and says he can join the champions circle. He asks Axel if there's anyone he wants to join this prestigious group, and Axel says there's one guy he owes it all to...Bo Dallas. Bo comes out and Miz forms the Miztourage. At Backlash and Money in the Bank, the Miz retains his title and so does Curtis Axel. At the upcoming Battleground PPV, Miz watches Axel lose his title and shakes his head at him, shoving him multiple times. Bo Dallas steps in and we move to the main event. Miz retains against John Cena and AJ Styles with the help of Miztourage, but shoves Axel away from the celebration. This is when Bo Dallas snaps, turning face again by attacking The Miz. Axel watches in shock not knowing what to do as the crowd erupts for Dallas. This is finally the world title push Dallas deserved and the WWE Universe knows it...
Summerslam 2017: Bo Dallas def. The Miz(c) via pinfall and Curtis Axel (21:59)
It's a near fall filled main event that sees Bo win to a MASSIVE pop. Bo is nearly driven to tears as he raises the WWE title above his head. He sees Axel across the ring with his head down and the two embrace. Bo is finally a world champion. Now I will admit, this will be a pretty short reign, but it's a world title push what more can you ask for.
Axel stays by Bo's side for the weeks to come as the pairing are now like best friends. Miz refers to them as the B-Team in a promo he cuts on Smackdown and Axel responds, "You see the gold on him. Did you see the gold on me a few months ago. Look at our accolades. This isn't the B-Team. This is the A-Team."...
No mercy 2017: Bo Dallas(c) w/ Curtis Axel def. The Miz w/ Maryse via pinfall (18:22)
Bo gets a title defense off against the Miz here. Maryse tries to interfere in the match but Axel tosses a soda at her from the audience and Dallas hits a running Bo-Dog to retain the title. The A-Team embraces as Bo is WWE champion for another month.
Hell in a Cell 2017: Bo Dallas(c) w/ Curtis Axel def. Jinder Mahal w/ The Singh Brothers (13:26); Baron Corbin def. Bo Dallas(c) w/ Curtis Axel via pinfall (2:14)
Dallas basically squashes Mahal while Axel beats up the Singh Brothers on the outside. After the match Corbin attacks Dallas and the Singh Brothers get revenge on Axel preventing him from helping. Corbin almost loses to Dallas immediately as Bo gets his head caught for a running Bo-Dog, but Corbin turns it into a Deep Six for a near fall. They fight for a short period of time before Bo charges for a clothesline and gets hit with an End of Days. 1...2...3. Corbin wins the WWE title.
Dallas loses his rematch on Smackdown the next Friday because of The Miz, but says it won't get his spirits down because him and his best friend have tag titles to pursue. The A-Team moves to Raw is booked as a strong and very coordinated tag team (instead of a team lucky to get a win) picking up wins over Enzo and Cass and The Bar, leading to a title shot. At Survivor Series A-Team is on Team Raw, and then at TLC they get a title shot...
TLC 2017: A-Team def. The Bar(c) via pinfall (14:13)
The A-Team and The Bar have a great match with everyone showing off their wrestling ability. The A-Team debuts a new tag finisher as well with Axel hitting a Perfect-Plex on Sheamus and Dallas dropping an Elbow while Axel is still in the bridge. A-Team win the titles.
Royal Rumble 2018: A-Team(c) def. Seth Rollins and Jason Jordan via pinfall (15:39)
Rollins and Jordan go for one more tag title run but A-Team manages to edge them out with another new team finisher, hitting a running Bo-Dog into a Big Boot from Axel. 1..2..3. A-Team retains the titles.
Elimination Chamber 2018: A-Team(c) def. Titus Worldwide and The Bar via pinfall (16:51)
A-Team retains in a triple threat tag match by pinning Apollo Crews of Titus Worldwide. Onto Wrestlemania.
Wrestlemania 34: A-Team issues open challenge; The Revival def. The A-Team(c) via pinfall (18:42)
Ending their reign in month 5, The Revival answers the challenge of the A-Team and defeats them in a nearly 20 minute match. It's a great showing but The Revival is victorious.
For the next few months, The A-Team compete for the tag titles often putting on great matches until, as most teams of singles wrestlers do, they implode with Curtis Axel turning heel...
Summerslam 2018: The Revival(c) def. A-Team via pinfall to retain (15:22); Curtis Axel turns heel
A-Team climbs up the tag title ranks for another title shot but lose just barely with Axel taking a Shatter Machine for A-Team to lose the match. Dallas goes to help Axel up after the match when Axel low blows Dallas and hits him with a Perfect-Plex. He beats him brutally to boos, and Dallas looks heartbroken as his former best friend walks off.
As Dallas cuts a heartbroken promo the next night on Raw, Curtis Axel attacks him from behind with a chair. He beats Dallas down and then puts the chair around his neck. He hits a Hangman's Facebuster with the chair around Bo's neck and then walks off. In the next few months, Axel becomes a 2 time Intercontinental champion winning the title at Hell in a Cell. Axel drops the title in month 4 to Bobby Lashley at the Royal Rumble, and then he enters the Royal Rumble match. He puts on a solid performance until 21 enters and this music hits: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8dmv0SonSHI
(To be honest, Bo Dallas never had a good theme song selection, but if he's not Bo-Lieving we might as well go back to his heel theme. He IS NOT a heel but he needs music to match the intensity he's gonna bring.)
Bo Dallas returns to a huge pop and goes right for Axel. They do the spot where they simultaneously punch each other and the crowd grows electric. Axel knees Bo in the ribs and hits the ropes....to get tossed out of the ring and eliminated. Bo then immediately eliminates himself hitting the ropes and hitting a Tope Con Hilo on Curtis Axel. He doesn't care about the match, he cares about murdering Curtis Axel. He assaults Axel on the outside and doesn't let up until HHH himself runs down and pulls Bo away. Bo says fuck the match and puts all the attention on him grabbing a mic and saying, "Forget this match! Curtis Axel I want you at Wrestlemania in a Hell in a Cell match!" The crowd erupts and Axel looks horrified as he flees from the scene. At Elimination Chamber Axel has his IC title rematch and Bo causes a DQ by attacking Axel with a Kendo Stick. He ties his arms in the rope, gets a contract and forces Axel to sign with his arms in the ropes. He brutally beats him with the Kendo Stick and roster members have to run down to pull him away...
Wrestlemania 35: Bo Dallas def. Curtis Axel via pinfall in a Hell in a Cell match (21:44)
The most brutal match on the card, blood is indeed drawn. Dallas tries to murder Axel, scraping his face off the cage, hitting running Bo-Dog's onto chairs, steps, trash cans, and through a table just refusing to pin Axel. It's not one sided though as Axel fights back with a Perfect-Plex on the apron, a sit out powerbomb through a table, and busting Bo open by smashing his head into the post over and over. The finish is even more brutal as Bo sets Axel up on top of a ladder with him, and hits a running Bo-Dog off the ladder through a table. Bo crawls to the pin. 1...2....3. Bo slowly makes it back to his feet, and then drops to his knees. He begins crying and Axel slowly stirs staring at him from across the ring. Axel gets a mic and says, "I never wanted it to be like this. Im sorry Bo." He pauses and walks over to him, dropping to his knees next to him. "Jealousy is a hell of an emotion. I saw you at the top, and I wanted some of that. I just wanted a chance, but it cost me my best friend. Im so sorry man." The two embrace and the A-Team graphic comes on the titantron and their music plays as they help each other walk out.
Through 2019, the A-Team get another tag title reign on Raw for about 4 months before moving to Smackdown and competing there to add to the tag division. And that about wraps up the booking. Let's look at what we accomplished for Bo Dallas.....and Curtis Axel I guess.
Curtis Axel:
2x Intercontinental champion (5 months, 4 months)
1x United States champion (4 months)
2x tag team champion (5 months, 4 months)
Wrestlemania 31 Andre the Giant memorial battle royal winner
Bo Dallas:
1x WWE champion (3 months)
2x Intercontinental champion (5 months, 5 months)
2x United States champion (4 months, 7 months)
2x tag team champion (5 months, 4 months)
1x NXT champion (9 months)
So that was my re-booking of Bo Dallas. If only it were real.....see you in the next one.

SAFE TRADING GUIDELINES: PLEASE READ THIS EVEN IF WE HAVE TRADED BEFORE. STEAM KEYS ARE SAFER TO TRADE.

I am taking extra precautions to ensure nobody's accounts or games are put into jeopardy. I have been doing this for a while now but I want to expand precautionary measures to make sure trading stays safe for everyone. I prefer receiving and providing steam keys. You must let me know what region you are in before we initiate the trade. Game trading is against Humble TOS so always be aware of that and trade with other users who you know are looking out for your interests as well.
DO NOT LINK YOUR STEAM PROFILE TO YOUR HUMBLE ACCOUNT
Also, as always, be wary of anyone impersonating me in pms or on Steam. I will generally not add you on Steam unless we come to agreement, so make sure you are only taking to my reddit username or my steam profile, which can be found here. Anyone else is a scammer
Also if i change my offer on a bundle, and we traded in the past day or two at a lower price, remind me and i can send the difference in a future trade.
  • I have a ton of games to trade, mostly from past bundles, but also many from retail purchases I made from the humble store, fanatical and other retailers. I also offer PayPal (US region but I can usually cover fees) , giftcards or I can purchase games on Steam or any other storefront, to gift directly to you on demand. Please note, I do not sell my games for paypal, unless specifically noted. You can find the list of games I have available here
  • I have alot of trading rep you can find here as well on my steam profile here. Feel free to pm or add me to discuss anything, just comment first.
  • I guarantee everything I trade. Everything has either been purchased directly by me, or sent to me as a gift link. If there is ever any issue, I will work with you to resolve it or get you a new game.
  • I am mostly looking for steam keys from humble bundles and steam gifts, but I usually accept game keys from other places too, depending on where they are from and your reputation.

What are you looking to do?

Trade your games for my games.

I will always be up for trading games. You can find the list of games I have available here. Games listed here are separated by tiers. Please note that tiers do not always denote value, so I may not simply swap games just because they are in the same tier. Many top tier games, ones that cost $30-60, will require many humble games in return most likely, it all depends on the offer. I have most of the games i am buying below available to trade as well.
Please go to my link above for a complete list of games I have on hand. Some desirable titles include A Plague Tale, Age of Wonders: Planetfall, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, , Battlefield 1, Battlefield V, Bloodstianed Ritual of the Night, Borderlands 3, Call of Cthulhu, CARRION, Children of Morta, CODE VEIN, Command and Conquer Remastered Collection, Cuphead, Dark Souls Remastered, Dark Souls II, Dark Souls III, Death Stranding, Destiny 2 Beyond Light Deluxe, Destroy All Humans, Devil May Cry 5, Disco Elysium, Disgaea 5 Complete, Dragon Quest Heroes II, Dragon Quest XI Echoes of an Elusive Age, Dying Light: The Following Enhanced Edition, Escape From Tarkov, F1 2020, Factorio, Fallout 76, Fall Guys, Final Fantasy XV, Grand Theft Auto V, Gears Tactics, Greedfall, Grounded, GTFO, Halo Masterchief Collection, Halo 2, Hitman 2 Gold, Jurassic World Evolution, Kenshi, Life is Strange 2 Complete, Maneater (Epic), Outer Wilds, Monster Hunter World, Monster Hunter World + Iceborne DLC, Mordhau, Monster Train, Mortal Kombat 11, Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath, Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020, Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord, Ni No Kuni, No No Kuni II, No Man's Sky, Outward, PC Building Sim, Persona 4 Golden, Phoenix Point, Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire, Planet Zoo, PLAYERUNKOWN'S BATTLEGROUNd (PUBG), Red Dead Redemption 2, Resident Evil 2 Remake, Resident Evil 3 Remake, Rimworld, Rimworld Royalty DLC, Risk of Rain 2, Satisfactory, Sea of Thieves, Secret of Mana, Sekiro: Shadow Die Twice, Scarp Mechanic, Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order, Stellaris: Federations, Streets of Rage 4, SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom - Rehydrated, Subnautica, Sunset Overdrive, TemTem, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 Remastered, Division 2: Gold Edition, Elder Scrolls V: Skryim Special Edition, The Outer Worlds, The Surge 2, They Are Billions, Trials of Mana, Rainbox Six Siege, Vampyr, Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem, Wolfenstein II, World War Z, Wreckfest, WWE 2K20, Doom, Pyre, Prey, Tabletop Simulator, Wolfenstein II, PC Building Simulator, XCOM Chimera Squad, Deep Rock Galactic, Astroneer, Raft, Among Us, Rogue Legacy 2, Battletoads, Gunfire Reborn, Control Ultimate Edition, New World, Crusader Kings III, Marvel's Avengers, Hades.

Sell your games to me for PayPal, Gift Cards or Games on Demand.

Here is a list of prices I offer for many common humble / steam games. If a game is not on this list, feel free to ask if I'd be interested and what I'd offer. I can offer PayPal, Giftcards to Steam, Amazon or pretty much anywhere, or I can buy games on demand from any storefront. I may be able to adjust my prices a bit and can be competitive if you see similar offers, so feel free to message me to discuss or haggle. All prices are in USD. I can also do TF2 keys at a rate of 1 TF2 key per $2 of value listed below.
PayPal Fees: I will cover paypal fees if the trade is above $15 in value. Between $10-15 I will split fees. Anything below, i cannot cover.

SAFE TRADING GUIDELINES: PLEASE READ THIS EVEN IF WE HAVE TRADED BEFORE. STEAM KEYS ARE SAFER TO TRADE.

I am taking extra precautions to ensure nobody's accounts or games are put into jeopardy. I have been doing this for a while now but I want to expand precautionary measures to make sure trading stays safe for everyone. I prefer receiving and providing steam keys. You must let me know what region you are in before we initiate the trade. Game trading is against Humble TOS so always be aware of that and trade with other users who you know are looking out for your interests as well.
DO NOT LINK YOUR STEAM PROFILE TO YOUR HUMBLE ACCOUNT
Also, as always, be wary of anyone impersonating me in pms or on Steam. I will generally not add you on Steam unless we come to agreement, so make sure you are only taking to my reddit username or my steam profile, which can be found here. Anyone else is a scammer
Also if i change my offer on a bundle, and we traded in the past day or two at a lower price, remind me and i can send the difference in a future trade.
  • I have a ton of games to trade, mostly from past bundles, but also many from retail purchases I made from the humble store, fanatical and other retailers. I also offer PayPal (US region but I can usually cover fees) , giftcards or I can purchase games on Steam or any other storefront, to gift directly to you on demand. Please note, I do not sell my games for paypal, unless specifically noted. You can find the list of games I have available here
  • I have alot of trading rep you can find here as well on my steam profile here. Feel free to pm or add me to discuss anything, just comment first.
  • I guarantee everything I trade. Everything has either been purchased directly by me, or sent to me as a gift link. If there is ever any issue, I will work with you to resolve it or get you a new game.
  • I am mostly looking for steam keys from humble bundles and steam gifts, but I usually accept game keys from other places too, depending on where they are from and your reputation.

What are you looking to do?

Trade your games for my games.

I will always be up for trading games. You can find the list of games I have available here. Games listed here are separated by tiers. Please note that tiers do not always denote value, so I may not simply swap games just because they are in the same tier. Many top tier games, ones that cost $30-60, will require many humble games in return most likely, it all depends on the offer. I have most of the games i am buying below available to trade as well.
Please go to my link above for a complete list of games I have on hand. Some desirable titles include A Plague Tale, Age of Wonders: Planetfall, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, , Battlefield 1, Battlefield V, Bloodstianed Ritual of the Night, Borderlands 3, Call of Cthulhu, CARRION, Children of Morta, CODE VEIN, Command and Conquer Remastered Collection, Cuphead, Dark Souls Remastered, Dark Souls II, Dark Souls III, Death Stranding, Destiny 2 Beyond Light Deluxe, Destroy All Humans, Devil May Cry 5, Disco Elysium, Disgaea 5 Complete, Dragon Quest Heroes II, Dragon Quest XI Echoes of an Elusive Age, Dying Light: The Following Enhanced Edition, Escape From Tarkov, F1 2020, Factorio, Fallout 76, Fall Guys, Final Fantasy XV, Grand Theft Auto V, Gears Tactics, Greedfall, Grounded, GTFO, Halo Masterchief Collection, Halo 2, Hitman 2 Gold, Jurassic World Evolution, Kenshi, Life is Strange 2 Complete, Maneater (Epic), Outer Wilds, Monster Hunter World, Monster Hunter World + Iceborne DLC, Mordhau, Monster Train, Mortal Kombat 11, Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath, Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020, Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord, Ni No Kuni, No No Kuni II, No Man's Sky, Outward, PC Building Sim, Persona 4 Golden, Phoenix Point, Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire, Planet Zoo, PLAYERUNKOWN'S BATTLEGROUNd (PUBG), Red Dead Redemption 2, Resident Evil 2 Remake, Resident Evil 3 Remake, Rimworld, Rimworld Royalty DLC, Risk of Rain 2, Satisfactory, Sea of Thieves, Secret of Mana, Sekiro: Shadow Die Twice, Scarp Mechanic, Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order, Stellaris: Federations, Streets of Rage 4, SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom - Rehydrated, Subnautica, Sunset Overdrive, TemTem, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 Remastered, Division 2: Gold Edition, Elder Scrolls V: Skryim Special Edition, The Outer Worlds, The Surge 2, They Are Billions, Trials of Mana, Rainbox Six Siege, Vampyr, Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem, Wolfenstein II, World War Z, Wreckfest, WWE 2K20, Doom, Pyre, Prey, Tabletop Simulator, Wolfenstein II, PC Building Simulator, XCOM Chimera Squad, Deep Rock Galactic, Astroneer, Raft, Among Us, Rogue Legacy 2, Battletoads, Gunfire Reborn, Control Ultimate Edition, New World, Crusader Kings III, Marvel's Avengers, Hades.

Sell your games to me for PayPal, Gift Cards or Games on Demand.

Here is a list of prices I offer for many common humble / steam games. If a game is not on this list, feel free to ask if I'd be interested and what I'd offer. I can offer PayPal, Giftcards to Steam, Amazon or pretty much anywhere, or I can buy games on demand from any storefront. I may be able to adjust my prices a bit and can be competitive if you see similar offers, so feel free to message me to discuss or haggle. All prices are in USD. I can also do TF2 keys at a rate of 1 TF2 key per $2 of value listed below.
PayPal Fees: I will cover paypal fees if the trade is above $15 in value. Between $10-15 I will split fees. Anything below, i cannot cover.

THESE ARE PRICES THAT I PAY FOR YOUR GAMES. I GENERALLY DO NOT SELL MY GAMES FOR PAYPAL, I ONLY OFFER GAME TRADES

Statements by Dr Hinshaw:
School Cases
  • 5 schools have had alerts ended
  • 81 schools with 1+ cases (total of 126 cases)
  • 6 new school outbreaks (19 total), defined as 2+ cases in last 14 days
  • 2 schools with likely in-school transmission: Vimy Ridge in Edmonton and Springfield Elementary School in Peace River
  • Again, not unexpected
  • 2 schools on "Watch" status (5+ cases). Vimy Ridge has 6 cases currently
  • 3% of all schools have had cases to date. Transmission has been identified in ~3% of school with cases
  • Sees this as a positive start
Foothills Medical Centre
  • Covid death over weekend occurred at Foothills
  • All acute care outbreaks are taken very seriously
  • 14 patients, 4 staff members in 3 units have tested positive
  • Public health investigation underway and AHS has taken swift action
  • Widespread testing is underway and more cases are likely to be detected
  • Patients with symptoms or are positive are treated in designated rooms
  • Foothills is safe and there is no increased risk for patients
St Joseph's College
  • Men's residence site on the University of Alberta has an outbreak
  • 5 cases
Cohorts
  • Common question is "what are cohorts"?: Small group where physical distancing can be relaxed
  • Household (+15 others), with the cohort definition being consistent for the entire household
  • Coworkers or other people in religious gatherings are NOT cohorts
  • How many sports cohorts can a child be in?: Many factors, including sport, and must be personally decided
  • There is no plan to raise sport cohort size in the immediate future (currently 50)
Q&A - Foothills
  • How worrying is Foothills outbreak?: Acute care outbreaks are always a concern. Seems to have occurred with in-hospital transmission between patients. Factors surrounding the introduction of Covid into the hospital is being investigated. Lessons of Misericordia are being applied
  • Are patients/visitors/staff not masking?: Investigation underway, so no conclusion yet. Inconsistent masking use reported with visitors and being investigated. Report of staff member who worked while symptomatic. We need to better understand why these both occurred as to prevent it from happening again
  • Is it concerning one outbreak is in cardiac unit?: Absolutely a concern - heart disease is a risk factor. Patients will be tested regularly (even if asymptomatic) and situation will be monitored closely
Q&A - Schooling
  • Comments on slow test results for students?: Wants mild symptomatic students to get tested quickly so they can get back to school quickly if negative (currently a work in progress with a lot of work going into it). Close contacts, independent of test result, must stay home because negative tests may develop into positive cases
  • Edmonton Public School has 48 staff, 545 students sent home. Comment?: Knows this has significant impact, is incredibly inconvenient, and understands the frustration. Does not want to downplay this, but vast majority of cases acquired disease in community. Cases in school aged individuals tracks with cases in community (Interjection - I think this is to mean that schools aren't increasing transmission). Asks for patience for the next few weeks as techniques in isolating are refined
  • Were there projections for school cases?: Emphasizes that projections are just a ballpark.
  • How many cases are too many for in-person learning?: Repeats that school aged cases are tracking with community spread, with the important number being number of in-school transmission cases. Education is best given in-person and has a significant benefit to the student's overall health (including social development, learning, educational development)
  • BC reduced screening for schooling. Will Alberta?: Discussion has been made. Alberta isn't far enough along to determine if symptoms can be removed without increasing Covid outbreak risk. Will watch other regions to see their experience
Q&A - Other
  • Who polices gathering sizes in small communities?: Organizers of the event, participants. Assistance and reminders can be provided by law enforcement, public health services, and a complaints website is available through Environmental Public Health. Difficult to do in real time, so if you see an event, try to give AHS a heads up early
  • Plans to change gathering size?: Not planned. Currently watching patterns of transmissions and will discuss restrictions if needed
  • Update to spread of cases in Edmonton?: 1/2 of active cases in Edmonton are close contacts of a confirmed case. Seeing if this spread in particular can be reduced. 1/3 are unknown source and checking of trends are occurring with these cases. Many cases are related to social events, but seeing workplace spread as well
Additional information will be logged below:
  • Calgary Upper NE's active cases: 100 (rose to 100 over weekend)
  • Edmonton Northeast's active cases: 101 (+7 since Friday)

2020.09.21 21:54 NationofChange How hypocrites in high places have contributed to the riots in the streets

BY: Paul Buchheit - September 21, 2020
Read the full article here: https://www.nationofchange.org/2020/09/21/how-hypocrites-in-high-places-have-contributed-to-the-riots-in-the-streets/
A perception exists among much of White America that young Black men would rather loot a store than work a job. This perception serves a lot of wealthy people well, deflecting attention away from their own failures to support the needs of society. But it’s a dangerously twisted perception. People want jobs. They want meaningful work. Given the opportunity, heads of households use their money to support their families, to provide for the essential needs of life. Numerous studies back this up.
So what has kept this from happening? A decades-long wealth grab by the richest Americans has left millions of Americans on the brink of poverty — and poverty begets violence, as numerous reputable sources suggest. And the lack of living-wage jobs has contributed to violence, as suggested by numerous other sources.
Martin Luther King said: “I think that we’ve got to see that a riot is the language of the unheard.” About 90% of America has been largely unheard since 1975.

Who’s responsible for the poverty that has led to rioting in the streets?

The redistribution of wealth to the richest 1% over the past 45 years is hard to comprehend. In a Time report on a study by the Rand Corporation, it is estimated that the $50 trillion shift from the bottom 90% to the top 1% would pay every working American an additional $1,144 a month, every single month, year after year. If wealth distribution since 1975 had continued in the same manner as between 1945 and 1975, today’s $35,000 salary would be over $60,000. It’s little wonder that so many Americans are lashing out at the broken system.
Hypocrisy kicked in during the 1970s and through the Reagan years, when the infamous Laffer curve and a ‘trickle-down’ philosophy gave Congress the justification to cut tax rates for corporations and the super-rich, and to deregulate the financial industry. “Trickle-down” never worked, but the delusion persists among its beneficiaries.
More recent hypocrisy. With the 2017 corporate tax cuts came the lofty assurances that money would be freed up for new investment in jobs and R&D. So what happened? In the following year S&P 500 companies set a new record for buying back their stock to artificially boost stock prices for management and investors — a practice that was illegal until the Reagan years. While about a third of S&P companies are now curtailing stock buybacks in response to the pandemic, others have depleted so much of their funds that they have turned to the pandemic-inspired CARES Act for relief to “distressed industries.”
Yet more hypocrisy. Last year nearly 200 CEOs of major U.S. corporations signed an agreement to affirm their commitment to employees, customers, and community. In 2020 signees were almost 20 percent more likely to announce employee layoffs, while paying out 20 percent MORE in dividends and stock buybacks.
The four-decade losses in wealth and job income have contributed to the poverty numbers, and to violent reactions. Martin Luther King explained, “We know through painful experience that freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.” Those demands are being expressed through violence.

What America needs: A job guarantee

The Republicans have argued for work requirements for Medicaid and food stamps and other forms of social programs. But when asked what he would do to bring jobs to Kentucky, Mitch McConnell responded, “That is not my job. It is the primary responsibility of the state Commerce Cabinet.”
But it IS his job. It’s OUR job as a nation. Liberals realize change is needed to provide opportunities to less fortunate people. Conservatives blame less fortunate people for not working hard enough. A job guarantee satisfies both sides. More and more experts and national leaders are starting to realize this. Especially with the pandemic, which has thrust us into “the throes of an unprecedented jobs crisis.”
There is plenty of potential work out there: infrastructure projects for roads, bridges, transit systems, and wastewater treatment; disaster preparation for hurricanes and fires; the construction of barriers to protect against sea-level rise; the planting of trees and development of parkland; postal service upgrades. And more work indoors: home care workers to aid the aged and disabled; child care; special needs programs; and not the least a resurgence in science and arts initiatives. The work chosen by recipients may be entrepreneurial, as newfound incomes unleash talents that were previously suppressed by personal financial concerns, and it could potentially take highly creative forms, as in the 1930s, when the Works Progress Administration hired thousands of artists and actors and musicians to help sustain the cultural needs of the nation. A recent Gallup poll found that nearly 70% of workers don’t feel ‘engaged’ (enthusiastic and committed) in their jobs. A guaranteed income will help provide the freedom to choose appealing work.
There is evidence for the success of guaranteed job programs, starting with the Depression-era Works Progress Administration, which put 8.5 million Americans to work building new roads, bridges, and parks around the country. More recently, according to the Georgetown Law Center on Poverty and Inequality, subsidized employment programs have “reduced family public benefit receipt, raised school outcomes among the children of workers, boosted workers’ school completion, lowered criminal justice system involvement among both workers and their children, improved psychological well-being, and reduced longer-term poverty.” The jobs program RecycleForce, which hires formerly incarcerated individuals with government money, has cut the recidivism rate while saving the taxpayer $1.20 for every dollar invested.
As Cory Booker noted, “If you’re willing to work, you should have a shot at economic stability and the American dream. We do not believe we should leave people behind to the ravages of unemployment and poverty.”

2020.09.21 21:40 RenoMillenial I’m (M26) trying to understand the significance (or insignificance) of my female best friend (F26) sleeping in my bed over the weekend.

Long post, sorry in advance.
Moved to my current city 4 years ago. “Kelsey” was the first friend I made. I initially asked her on a date when we met which is relevant to this story. Turns out she was dating some one at the time and politely declined but we became friends from then on. We’ve never had a period of time where we were both single since then, which is also relevant to this story. She’s now been dating a different guy for three years and him and I get along together really well. He’s a bit younger and sort of looks up to me. I spend a lot of time with Kelsey, and we do a lot of activities that would be considered “couple-like”, but things have always been strictly platonic on both ends.
Starting about two years ago I realized I was damn near in love with this girl. I kept it to myself and play things off really well so I don’t think anyone’s had any suspicions. Her boyfriend trusts me completely and has never complained about the time we spend together. I’ve never had any intention of sabotaging their relationship, ever. That being said, any girl I’ve dated since then was just me trying to distract myself from my feelings for “Kelsey”.
Kelsey decided she needs to move for a college program that’s only available in a city two states away. Dropped the bomb on everyone two weeks ago that she’ll be moving in December. She wanted to have a conversation with me about talking to her boyfriend about him proposing to her before she moved, or even if it was a good idea or not.
The thing is, since they’ve started dating three years ago, I’ve been completely biased towards always advocating for him even when he messed up because I wanted to deflect anyone from thinking I was trying to interfere. I’m this guy’s hype man. That being said I do not think he is the right guy for her. He’s a pretty apathetic to her emotional needs at times, not maliciously, but he just doesn’t understand. He’s also much less motivated than her and that is starting to take a toll on her as she aspires to be a doctor. So last week I basically disclosed to her that I’ve been artificially hyping this guy up to avoid looking bad on my end and laid out that I don’t think they should get engaged and they should wait.
I didn’t tell her I’m in love with her, just that based on how our friendship started I thought it was best for me not to interfere in her relationship, but at this point it’s a very serious decision that needs to be made and as her best friend I’m obligated to be honest and tell her how I really felt about the guy. He is not willing to move with her and can’t afford to visit her so they’re both aware that their relationship would likely crumble, and a pre-move engagement would be rash and not the right decision seeing as they haven’t been particularly happy over the last year. That being said I made it clear I’m nuetral and want her to make the best decision for herself.
Fast forward to this past weekend, we had a small joint birthday party at my house since our birthdays are close. I got to meet some of her female friends I’ve never met before, but apparently know a lot about me. After a few hours, once I was pretty trashed one of them pulled me aside and basically grilled me on my feelings for Kelsey. She said it was obvious how I felt and everyone knows it. She also told me that Kelsey feels the same way about me, and this friend’s opinion was that Kelsey and her BF are going to break up and I just need to be patient for us to happen. She also voiced that no one wants them to get engaged and they don’t think he’s right for her. I could have handled the conversation better but drunk me left it at “She’s perfect, that’s all I have to say about the matter”.
I was just floored at the idea that her friends were advocating for me to be a scumbag and swoop in once this relationship fails. I’m not that kind of guy and it pains me to even consider it because I really like her boyfriend, he’s just not right for her. That being said Kelsey and I would be perfect together and we would have all the support in the world.
Later that night when things were wrapping up, Kelsey and her BF decided to stay the night and sleep on my futon since we were all pretty trashed. She had the next day off and he didn’t have to work until 10 so I offered to wake up at 8:30 and make us all breakfast. 7AM rolls by and I get a knock on my bedroom door. I’m asleep and always sleep in my boxers. She walks in an lays right next to me on top of the covers, while I’m under, and said he decided to go home at 7 to get ready for work and sleep an extra hour there or something along those lines (I was half-asleep and hungover, listening comprehension wasn’t the best). This is BS because if that was true she would have gone with him. My best guess is they had an early morning argument. So anyway, we’re pretty close so I did not think that’s weird. But pretty soon after that she just got into bed saying that my futon is uncomfortable and started to go to sleep 6 inches away from me. I’m very obviously almost naked and no matter how close two friends are I don’t think that’s normal behavior because she KNOWS how I feel about her. Nothing happened but there was obviously a lot of pent up emotional, maybe sexual tension for those two hours where we laid there, half asleep, half talking. We got up and cleaned my house together afterwards. She had gotten me a complete outfit for my birthday and asked me to try it on. She had just spent 2 hours with me in my underwear and looked at me as if I expecting I change right there in front of her. So I just stripped down and put it on. I’m wondering if I’m over-analyzing here and she’s just really comfortable with me as a friend despite knowing how I feel about her (She just knows I’m really disciplined beyond most men and trusts me completely), or I’m an idiot who is purposefully ignoring her giving me some major hints.
The only other thing worth mentioning is, say I did ever have the chance to be with her, she knows I have the means to maintain an apartment in her new city and my house where I currently live due to having a remote job and being fairly good with money. So us being together would be a lot more realistic than her current boyfriend in the short term. I haven’t voiced this obviously but I’m sure it’s something she’s weighed about the situation. I feel like a fucking scumbag for even thinking about any of this but if her friends are pushing for it and I know we’d be great together I can’t NOT think about it and it’s eating me alive.
TL;DR female best friend is having boyfriend troubles. I’m obsessed with her. I’ve done my best to stay neutral and platonic for years. Getting hints there could be a future for us. I feel guilty.

2020.09.21 18:03 Trapped-Fox Heartless Monster (extremely long)

This is going to be long(sorry!).
I have obviously not been perfect, and I am not a good example of anything for anyone, but I’ve never told the whole story, and just want to get it off my chest, since I’ll probably never be able to tell the truth to anyone I know... so, here goes.
I met my SO 16 years ago, I was 23 and he was 29. After a year or so of dating, we found out that he had a medical condition that didn’t have any real physical impact at the time, but we were warned it would eventually become a problem, and that lifestyle choices and management was important. I was in love with him, so I didn’t care. I was all optimism, “knowing” we would figure it out, and hoping a cure or treatment would appear before it was even a problem. We got married a few years later.
When I met him, he had a job, outside hobbies, interests, was finishing up his MBA, was living in a condo he rented - which he kept up. He’d smoke and drink socially from time to time, the smoking wasn’t my thing, but didn’t bother me. He was generally happy, nice, liked things, had people he was close with and liked to see... We were happy. Even to this day we don’t actually fight with each other often.
A year after we got married he got laid off. Physically he was fine, so he should have gotten another job, and kept saying he was going to, but even starting the process of looking for one always hinged on something else he needed to do with his resume, or someone he needed to talk to, but never actually happened. The only thing he seemed to become increasingly interested in was playing video games.
I wasn’t really bothered at first. I figured he just needed a break, so I didn’t get on him about it. The only real problem I had in the first year or so was adjusting to the games disrupting our time together. I was at work all day, would come home, make dinner, and he would sometimes take the food and go back to the video game, or worse, he’d tell me we’d watch something on tv together “in 15 minutes”, which would turn into hours. I was hurt, but I tried to be understanding. I knew his ego was a little crushed from the layoff, he didn’t want to see our friends or family because he wanted to avoid having to talk about it, and I knew the diagnosis felt like an anvil over his head that could fall on him at any moment, so if something made him happy, I tried to suck it up and let him have it.
Since I didn’t believe his timing anymore, I started keeping myself busy with craft projects, or learning some other random thing like cake decorating. I got sort of accustomed to doing my own thing alone. We would have minor arguments from time to time like any couple, but we were still okay in general, and I was still optimistic things would get better.
My career progressed, I had been saving, so two years later, when we found out we couldn’t stay at the condo we were renting anymore, I had the wildly ridiculous idea to buy a house. Clearly my thinking was flawed, but I thought “I can afford the mortgage on my salary, this will be a good change for us, forward progress, something for him to care about, something positive for him to talk about, maybe it will push him to get back out there, and once he starts working again, it will be so easy”. He was still saying he was going to get another job. I know it may seem ridiculous that I still believed it, but I did. Whenever we had conversations where I expressed doubt or concern, he would get upset and tell me to have faith in him, so I did.
About a year after moving into the house, he had his first semi-major medical event related to his diagnosis. We handled it, and physically he bounced back from it within a few weeks, but along with it came new prescription drugs and he increased his recreational smoking a lot. I didn’t love it, but felt I couldn’t tell him how he feels, or how much pain he is or isn’t in. So, I basically just did my best to keep everything afloat and take care of things so he wouldn’t get stressed out, but I will admit that at this point I started getting burned out, and some things were impacting the way I felt about both him, and us, even though I didn’t fully recognize it at the time.
Another year went by, no major medical issues, and we had what I would consider our first major blowup about everything. He was regularly sleeping well into the afternoon, playing games all night, still didn’t want to see friends and family because he didn’t want to be questioned about anything, wouldn’t look for work, wouldn’t help around the house, (still wanted to have sex, but I’ll get to that part in a minute), wouldn’t go talk to a therapist, was doing other things that were counter-productive to his health, and I was starting to drown, trying to hold it all together.
I told him I couldn’t take it, that I needed him to care about SOMETHING. I said “even if you don’t get another job, go volunteer for something, go take a class in something, get a constructive hobby, go talk to someone about how you’re feeling, just DO something!”.... I told him how helpless it felt, watching him engage in things that would actively lead to making his condition worse. I told him it was like I was being forced to slowly watch him kill himself.
It’s not much of a fight when the person you’re “fighting with” agrees with everything you’re saying. He said he knew things were bad, he understood it was a problem, he’d try, things would get better.
More time passed though, and things didn’t change. I started working through the process of leaving him, I told him that I couldn’t do it anymore. I felt like I was failing, and I thought that maybe if I wasn’t there anymore, and other people finally knew how wrong things were, maybe he would be forced to change something and pull himself out of it. We had a couple conversations about it, but then the “anvil” finally fell pretty hard. Because of that, I never brought up leaving him again.
The last 5 years with him has mostly consisted of trying to manage medical issues and recovery, taking on a lot more of his physical at-home care, (PT, bathing, etc), the onslaught of medical bills, on top of everything else that already existed. I do believe him when he says he regrets the way he spent those years where he could have done more, honestly I have to believe it to function. He apologizes to me for the situation we’re in now. I tell him it’s okay, we can’t change it. I’m committed to staying and making things as good as possible for him for whatever time we have left.
Throughout the 7-year period where he was mostly healthy, but not doing much, he still wanted to have sex. I had always been HL, so I had always liked sex, but liked it less and less as time went on, to the point where I’d dread it beforehand and go hide and cry after. He didn’t know the full extent of how much it changed for me, I didn’t want to hurt him, but if I hesitated, he would say something like that I “must not love him anymore”. I knew that wasn’t true, of course I love him, it felt like everything in my world was centered around it, supporting him, giving him whatever made him happy and comfortable. I didn’t correlate how increasingly overwhelmed and frustrated I was with the drop in desire. I actually thought something was physically wrong with me, that I had some chemical imbalance where I didn’t want it anymore, or just, being married and getting older made me not like sex as much. So the last thing in the world I ever would have thought to do was go looking for an AP. I mean, think about it - why would I go, find someone else, to do something, that I didn’t want to do in the first place? That would be insane.
So I never actually looked for an AP, my (one and only) AP found me.
I had been around my future AP for 8 years before anything happened. I clocked him as attractive, but not in any kind of unusual or standout way. At first he knew generally what anyone else knew about my home situation, but since he was in my life in a somewhat unavoidable way, and we were friendly, we would talk when we saw each other, and sometimes he would ask questions. I never gave a ton of detail, we never crossed over into talking about sex stuff, my SO’s other habits, or how I had almost left him, but he did have more insight into how hard I was struggling than most. AP doesn’t know my SO or anyone else in my life, so it felt “safe” to admit I was having a hard time to him, especially since my SO was always so focused on keeping up a perfect front for friends and family when it came to our situation.
Why AP was attracted to me initially is still sort of a mystery, but, one night 3 years ago, while he and I were alone talking about Halloween decorations of all things, he kissed me.
You would think my next words would be “and then the romance began!”, but no, honestly, I was horrified. I could not get away from him fast enough. I think I said something lame like “I’m sorry, I can’t” and ran off, largely to freak out and hyperventilate.
I wonder sometimes why I didn’t go tell anyone about it, but I didn’t. I didn’t tell my SO, or any of my friends or family about the kiss. I think part of it was that I was so used to bottling up and hiding anything that wasn’t “good” or “positive”, that it was just second nature. I knew I didn’t want to cause drama, or upset anyone - over what was clearly a misunderstanding... so I did what I always did and pushed it down and kept going.
Like I said before - at the time, I thought I didn’t even like sex anymore, so it wasn’t exactly a “temptation I turned down”. I was mostly worried that things wouldn’t go back to normal, that I did something wrong, and future AP would now be mad at me because I had somehow lead him on without realizing it. He was from one of the few places in my life that was still good, where I still felt normal and like I had some value and respect, and I was terrified it would be ruined.
Future AP apologized to me the next day and I waved it off, also apologizing if something I did made him think that’s what I was looking for. Life went on, a couple months passed, but I found myself still thinking about the kiss. It went from something that would randomly pop into my mind, to it being a sort of fantasy.... and then, I started having dreams about having sex with him.
The dreams fueled the fantasies, which fueled the dreams, it was a loop. When I’d see him, I’d act normal - I obviously didn’t tell future AP any of this, because I wasn’t sure why it was happening or what it meant. But it became a frequent-enough thought in my mind, that I eventually I started to wonder if... maybe I did still like sex?
After another month of attempting to contain it to my own brain, I started casually watching him out of the corner of my eye when we were in the same place, watching the way he interacted with other women, trying to see if he acted the same way with them as he had towards me.
I was worried that the reason he kissed me, was because he thought I was a weak, easy target, or that he took these types of shots at every girl, just to see if anything would stick. I was afraid of being an idiot who thought I was special in some way, I was afraid of falsely believing I had more value than I really did. Plus, I knew if I could just confirm that I didn’t actually matter to him, it would kill my weird new feelings and I could let it go.
The more I watched him though, the more I realized he actually had been treating me different than others.
So, I switched to asking him questions outright - like, was suddenly kissing people just a thing he did? was it something I did? What did he want to happen that night? What did he want in general? ....And on and on for weeks, escalating into longer, deeper conversations, where we shared more personal things about our lives and feelings almost every day.
I did eventually tell him everything, including the types of dreams I was having, I told him it made me curious, but that I was extremely unsure of what I wanted, or even what I liked at that point. I was incredibly skittish and I am sure that most men would have labeled me as crazy, indecisive, maybe broken, definitely not worth the effort, but he stuck with me - never pressuring, never dismissive or irritated by my questions, never trying to force me to do or not do anything, always listening to me.... When I mentioned in one of our conversations that “when I was younger, I had a rule about getting tested before having sex with someone new”, he told me he would get tested if I wanted him to, but that he didn’t want to run off and do it without me asking for it, because he didn’t want me to think, that he thought, showing me results meant he expected something to happen in return. I told him, “well, it’s never a bad idea to go get checked out”... and so, 5 months after the first kiss that went so horribly wrong, we had our second kiss.
The only thing I remember about the first kiss was confused panic, but the second kiss... felt like the first breath you take after being underwater too long. It burned in the best way, I was suddenly alive again, I felt like life had possibilities. I felt like someone could see me, like I mattered.
We spent the night together and, spoiler alert, I still like sex... a lot. Like 10/10 would recommend.
I know all the things they’ll say about me. How I knew about the potential of SO’s condition when I got married so I shouldn’t have married him if I couldn’t handle it. That marriage isn’t just for when things are easy. That if I wasn’t happy I should have looked to leave sooner, and that a lot of my SO situation was my own fault for enabling him instead of pushing him to do something, while pointing out that I didn’t communicate my feelings the way I should have to my SO, or anyone else, for years... Probably also that having an AP is not a solution, that I don’t deserve to have him.
I know, and if I could go back to the beginning, knowing what I know now, and try again, I would do so many things differently, and I like to believe SO would too. All I can say is that while the problems with my SO were happening, I didn’t fully understand what was happening, or the impact it was having, and now we are where we are. I won’t leave my SO. I may ultimately feel like I wasted years and faith on him, there are things I wanted that I will never have (I’ll never be a mother), but i can’t change what’s done. My list of failings starts way before AP kissed me - I thought I was supporting my SO while he figured things out, I thought that love was like... a points system of how much suffering I could take to make the other person happy, and if he was happy that should be enough. I didn’t see myself as valuable enough to deserve love unless I ran myself into the ground to be worthy of it. I hated confrontation, avoided it like the plague, thought it was a good thing that we never fought, that it meant that we were good... but all those tiny moments of anger and resentment where I held back, had a price. It made me feel dead inside, like my feelings and what I wanted for my life didn’t matter. Ultimately, I failed my SO way before AP existed by failing myself.
I’m not just his wife, I’m his caregiver, his medical insurance coverage, I’m his watchdog on procedure days making sure doctors don’t forget about all his allergies to common things they use... My AP doesn’t change the fact that I do love and care about him. SO’s care always comes first, he has good days and bad days, and I still appreciate the good ones.
I still love my SO, but I am in love with my AP, I could go on forever about how much he’s helped me in the last few years. If something’s wrong between us, we talk about it and don’t reach for emotional manipulation to escape being called out on bullshit. We tell each other what we want, we’re realistic about the gaps between what we want and what’s possible. We make the most out of what we have. I don’t feel like I have to sacrifice myself, or pretend, in order to make him happy. We enjoy even the simple act of sitting quietly together. If today was the last day I ever had him, I would be thankful more than anything else. He reminded me that I’m a person that needs support too, that love isn’t conditional on being perfect all the time, and oddly, that I have value separate from what I can physically do for someone... Believe it or not, he’s made me better at caring for SO. Once I let him in, he’s become the real support I was never able to have before. He grounds me when I get overwhelmed, reminds me that I have to eat too, and that I have to take care of myself in order to take care of SO. He makes me happy, he makes me feel loved. I agree, I don’t deserve him, but I am so grateful for him.
I tell myself that none of us are the villain or the hero of this story, but of course I am terrified of getting caught. I know it would upset SO, and that the gossip would be boiled down to the simple tag line “Did you hear? She cheated on her sick husband!”. Of course it would, and I couldn’t blame anyone for the oversimplification. I can’t walk every person through the last 12 years of increasing unhappiness, and what it felt like, what I was thinking at the time (right or wrong), the plan to leave, the decision to stay, and how even though I lived it, I didn’t really understand what was going wrong to even try and fix it.
Some people would always think that I woke up one morning, randomly deciding to be a heartless bitch, laughing evilly, rubbing my hands together, plotting to run out to seduce anyone in sight to ruin my ‘perfect marriage’ for fun... Especially because I worked so hard to constantly make everything appear “great” to the people who were closest to us.
Everything I ever did would be negated by this one thing... and really, even if I was given the chance to explain everything, what would that really do? Increase the pain of an already painful situation for my sick SO? There would be no point.
So, if you made it to the end of this, I guess I hope... someone out there will be able to understand me and how it happened, or at least understand how impossible it was to see the forrest from the trees when I was lost, and believe I didn’t set out to be some kind of completely heartless monster.

2020.09.21 16:56 big_oof_energy My TA (late twenties, male) sexually harassed me (18F) and threatened me, some of these actions happening when I was underage (17). It’s one of the reasons why I’m thinking of dropping out of college.

The title probably sounds a bit dramatic. I was in a philosophy section taught by a TA in his late 20s (he mentioned turning 30 soon), my freshman year. Having skipped a grade and being very excited about college, I was very eager and a bit obnoxious in a discussion section mostly filled with food-coma sophomores.
My TA took notice of my enthusiasm and we talked after class about philosophical concepts, and I was happy to have made a friend. I even thought I was lucky to have something of a mentor figure in uni. However, he soon began to ask me to stay after class even when I said I had to leave. Then, he pretended to “lose” my midterm and force me to stay after class to get to the bottom of the situation, telling me that he didn’t want to believe it but I may have skipped the exam and lied to him. After he miraculously “found” my midterm again after a few weeks, he began telling me that my presence disrupted discussion and he wanted to meet with me privately in office hours or at a cafe to fulfill my discussion grade.
Finally, before the semester ends, he begins to ask me questions like “what do young, asian girls like you think about sex with older, privileged white men?”
When he asked me this and subsequently discussed the sexual attraction tendencies of asian girls, I was still 17.
He’d tell me that I was very different from the asian girls he’d met when he taught at a high school in Korea. “You think very differently. It’s very intriguing to me!”
When I trusted him back then, I’d even come out of the closet to him. He was supportive, but said. “It’s important to come out to the right people you know? Some people might use this against you... tell your religious family,,, but that’s a pretty disgusting move. I’d only do that if that person really had it coming, you know?”
After the semester ended, he emailed me again when corona had started to hit California and my university switched to online learning. I had to move out quickly and travel to Hong Kong to stay with some family, and deal with the mess of quarantine on top of exams. He had asked me to go on a “nice long walk” with him and perhaps grab dinner after, and he’d missed me so much. I felt very awkward about this question, especially considering all the things he’d said, and with everything happening, I didn’t reply the email. He then started sending me angry email after angry email, telling me that it would be more respectful to receive a negative answer than no response. When I replied saying due to quarantine and moving out, I didn’t really have time to reply, he sent a long, quite strange email saying things like: “hmm were you having quarantine on a cruise ship (reference to diamond princess incident)? I’d imagine quarantine has to make for a lot of free time... oh but it’s not like you’re a privileged white male... you get the right to complain!”
He wanted to video call with me. I didn’t reply him. A month ago, he sent another email to me and apologised, saying he “may have overstepped some boundaries”.
Dude, you overstepped a million lines a long long time ago!
At this point, this is just the cherry on top of a cake of things that tire me out. I don’t have a great relationship with my parents, who favour my sister and tend to her a lot. All they ask me is why my life is a hot mess, why I can’t do anything right, why I’m a basket case. They always said that growing up, when they came home after weeks on business trips, drunk and angry, they’d slap me and ask “why can’t you do anything right?”
I thought getting into a top 10 uni would appease them, but my sister went to Yale and they’re just never gonna think I’m good enough. All I got outta going to a top university is a TA who wanted to fuck a teenager and wouldn’t leave me alone. For years I’ve been suicidal on and off, and I just get drunk when I’m sad. I’ve grown apart from my friend group from HS, who I consider family, because I went to the west coast for uni. I made no close friends in college, and the only mentor I thought I had turned out to be weird and creepy.
I don’t even want to participate in academics anymore. My whole life, parents and relatives and adults have told me that I was a pretty face, nothing underneath. I used to feel proud of getting A’s and proving them wrong, now I look at my GPA and that awful A+ in Philosophy and I don’t even know what to think or how to feel.
I guess if there’s one thing I’m certain of, is that none of this is making it any easier to not want to yeet outta this reality.
I’m not sure where I’m going with this, but I guess I wanted to ask something of anyone who reads this wall of text. Sometimes, I keep hoping that someone will reach out and come in and help me fix my life because I’m fucking failing at fixing it and everything is just going wrong. I’m not a child anymore, though, so my hot mess of everything is just my responsibility to fix. However, there are a lot of girls out there, who are stuck in shitty families, maybe struggling mentally, who are probably one more shitty factor away from everything going to flames. Please keep an eye out— for the classmate who looks uncomfortable being asked to stay after class, for the friend who flinches when you come up behind them and doesn’t like talking about their parents.
Thanks for reading this far, I guess! Have an awesome day, wherever you are <3

2020.09.21 15:23 FollowtheAlmightyGod A Song of Life Amidst the Ruin

By Gao Jing, Henan Province
In 1999, I had the fortune to accept Almighty God’s work of the last days. Through reading God’s words, I perceived the authority and power they hold, and felt that these words were the voice of God. Being able to hear the words expressed to mankind by the Creator moved me beyond my ability to describe, and for the first time, I felt the sense of peace and joy in the depths of my spirit that the work of the Holy Spirit brings to man. From that moment on, I became an increasingly avid reader of God’s words. After I’d joined The Church of Almighty God, I saw that the church was a completely new world, entirely different from that of society. All the brothers and sisters were simple and kind, pure and full of life. Although we weren’t related to each other by blood, and we each came from different backgrounds and had our own identities, we were all like kindred spirits who loved each other, supported one another, and were united together in joy. Seeing this really made me feel how happy and joyful, how beautiful and sweet a life spent worshiping God is. Later, I saw these words of God: “As members of the human race and devout Christians, it is the responsibility and obligation of us all to offer up our minds and bodies for the fulfillment of God’s commission, for our entire being came from God, and it exists thanks to the sovereignty of God. If our minds and bodies are not for God’s commission and not for the righteous cause of mankind, then our souls will be unworthy of those who were martyred for God’s commission, and much more unworthy of God, who has provided us with everything” (“God Presides Over the Fate of All Mankind” in The Word Appears in the Flesh). God’s words allowed me to understand that, as a created being, I should be living for the Creator, and that I should be dedicating and expending my all to spread and testify God’s gospel of the last days—only this is the most valuable and meaningful life. And so, when I heard that many people living in far-flung, remote areas hadn’t heard Almighty God’s gospel of the last days, I resolutely said my farewells to the brothers and sisters in my hometown and set out on my journey to spread the kingdom gospel.
In 2002, I arrived in a remote, backward mountainous area in Guizhou Province to preach the gospel. Spreading the gospel there required me to walk many miles along mountain paths every day, and I often had to brave the wind and snow. With God beside me, however, I never felt tired, or that it was a hardship. Under the guidance of the Holy Spirit’s work, the gospel work there soon took off, with more and more people accepting God’s work of the last days and the church life overflowing with vitality. Guided by God’s words, I spent six happy, fulfilling years in that place. That is, until 2008, when something extraordinary happened out of the blue, something that would shatter the joy and tranquility of my life …
It happened around 11 a.m. on the morning of March 15, 2008. Two brothers and I were in a gathering when suddenly four policemen burst through the door and quickly had us pressed down on the floor. They handcuffed us without a word, then shoved and dragged us into a police van. Inside the van, they all sniggered wickedly, waving their electroshock batons at us and occasionally jabbing them into our heads or torsos. They cursed us savagely, saying, “You sons of bitches! You’re so young you could do anything, but oh no, you have to go and believe in God! You really have nothing better to do?” Having been arrested so suddenly left me feeling very nervous, and I had no idea what lay in store for us. All I could do was call out to God silently in my heart, over and over: “O God! This situation has befallen us today by Your permission. I ask only that You grant us faith and protect us so that we may stand witness for You.” After I prayed, a line of God’s words floated into my mind: “Be loyal to Me above all else, move forward with bravery; I am your strong rock, rely on Me!” (“Chapter 10” of Utterances of Christ in the Beginning in The Word Appears in the Flesh). “Yes!” I thought. “God is my support and He is my strong and powerful backup. No matter what situation I find myself in, as long as I can stay loyal to God and stand with Him, then I will surely overcome Satan and bring shame to it.” The enlightenment of God’s words enabled me to find strength and faith, and I silently resolved: I would rather die than abandon the true way and not stand witness for God!
Once we arrived at the police station, the policemen dragged us roughly out of the van, then pushed and shoved us into the station. They thoroughly searched us all over and found some gospel materials and a cellphone in the bags belonging to my two church brothers. Seeing that they hadn’t turned up any money, one of the wicked policemen dragged one of the brothers over and kicked and beat him until he fell to the ground. After that, we were taken to different rooms to be interrogated separately. They questioned me all that afternoon, but they didn’t get a word out of me. It was after 8 p.m. that evening when they noted us down as being three anonymous detainees before sending us all to the local detention house.
As soon as we arrived at the detention house, two female correctional officers stripped me of all my clothes. They cut off anything metal on my clothes and took my shoelaces and my belt. Barefoot and holding my trousers up I made my way with trepidation to my cell. When they saw me come in, the women prisoners surged toward me like lunatics and completely surrounded me, all of them asking about me all at once. The lights were so dim in there that their eyes looked as wide as saucers; they were glaring at me and curiously looking me up and down, while some tugged at my arms, touching here and pinching there. Dumbstruck, I stood rooted to the spot, feeling very afraid and not daring to say a word. At the thought that I would have to live in this hellish place with these women, I felt like bursting into tears at the injustice of it all. Just then, a prisoner who had been sitting on the brick bed not saying a word, suddenly yelled, “That’s enough! She’s just arrived and doesn’t know what’s what. Don’t frighten her.” She then handed me a quilt to put around myself. I felt a surge of warmth in that moment, and I knew well that it wasn’t this prisoner who was being nice to me, but God who was using the people around me to help and take care of me. God had been with me the whole time, and I was not at all alone. Having the love of God to keep me company inside this gloomy, nightmarish hell on earth, I felt tremendously comforted. Deep in the night after all the other prisoners had fallen asleep, I still had no mind for sleep whatsoever. I thought about how, just that morning, I had been happily performing my duty with my brothers and sisters, and yet that night I was lying in this tomb-like hellish place, with no idea when I’d ever be let out—I felt an inexpressible sorrow and distress. Just as I was immersed in my own thoughts, a freezing cold wind whipped up out of nowhere and I shivered involuntarily. I lifted my head to look around and only then did I realize that the cell was open to the elements. Besides the roof over the sleeping area, the rest of the cell had a mesh above it made of thick metal bars welded together, and the cold wind just rushed right in. Occasionally, I could also hear the footsteps of the policemen on patrol walking on the roof. All I could feel was bone-chilling fear, and my fear, my helplessness, and my feelings of having been wronged all flooded my heart; tears fell unbidden from my eyes. Just at that moment, a passage of God’s words floated clearly into my mind: “You should know that all things in the environment around you are there by My permission, I arrange it all. See clearly and satisfy My heart in the environment I have given to you. Do not fear, Almighty God of hosts will surely be with you; He has your back and He is your shield” (“Chapter 26” of Utterances of Christ in the Beginning in The Word Appears in the Flesh). “Yes,” I thought. “God has permitted the CCP government to capture me. Although this place is dark and terrifying and I have no idea what I will come up against next, God is my backup so there is nothing to fear! It’s all or nothing, and I place everything into God’s hands.” Having understood God’s will, I felt much more relaxed, and so I said a silent prayer to God: “O God! Thank You for Your enlightenment and illumination which have enabled me to understand that all of this is happening by Your permission. I wish to submit to Your orchestrations and arrangements, to seek Your will in this predicament, and to gain the truths You wish to give me. O God! It’s just that I am of such small stature, so I ask that You grant me faith and strength and protect me so that, no matter what tortures I might be put to, I will never betray You.” After praying, I dried my tears and contemplated God’s words, as I quietly awaited the coming of the new day.
Early the next day, there was a banging sound and the cell door opened. One of the correctional officers hollered, “Out, Jane Doe!” I lingered for a moment before I finally realized she was calling me. In the interrogation room, the policemen once again asked me to give my name and address, and to tell them about the church. I said nothing, but just sat on the chair with my head lowered. They questioned me every day for a week, until finally one of them jabbed his finger at me and yelled, “You bitch! We’ve spent days with you and you haven’t said a word. Fine, just you wait. We’ve got something to show you!” Having said this, the two policemen stormed off, slamming the door behind them. One day as night was falling, the police came again to summon me. They handcuffed me and stuffed me into a police van. Sitting in the back of that van, I couldn’t help but feel panic beginning to rise inside me, and I thought: “Where are they taking me? Could they be taking me out to the middle of nowhere to violate me? Will they stuff me in a sack and throw me into the river to feed the fish?” I was incredibly afraid, but just then some lines from a church hymn called “The Kingdom” began to resound in my ears: “God is my support, what is there to fear? I pledge my life to fight with Satan till the end. God lifts us up, we should leave everything behind and fight to bear witness for Christ. God will carry out His will on earth. I’ll prepare my love and loyalty and devote them all to God. I will joyfully welcome God’s return when He descends in glory …” (Follow the Lamb and Sing New Songs). In a second, an inexhaustible strength rose up inside me. I lifted my head to look out the window as I silently pondered the lyrics of the hymn. One of the policemen noticed that I was staring out the window and quickly drew a curtain across it, before bellowing fiercely at me, “What are you looking at? Lower your head!” Being yelled at so suddenly made me tremble with shock, and I lowered my head right away. Four policemen were all smoking inside the van, constantly blowing out clouds of smoke, and pretty soon the air inside the van had become intolerably foul; I began to cough. One of the policemen sitting in front of me turned around and pinched my lower jaw with his fingers before blowing smoke right in my face. He then said maliciously, “You know, you only need to tell us everything you know, and you won’t need to suffer at all; you can just go home. You’re a young woman, and you’re very pretty….” As he said this, he ran his fingers across my face and winked lasciviously at me, then laughed wickedly and said, “Maybe we’ll find a boyfriend for you yet.” I turned my face away and brought my chained hands up to throw his hand off. Embarrassed into anger, he said, “Oh, you’re so strong. Just wait till we get where we’re going, and then you’ll behave yourself.” The van drove on. I had no idea what I was about to face, and so all I could do was call out to God silently in my heart: “O God! I’m ready to risk everything now. No matter what tactics these awful officers use against me, as long as I have one breath left in my body, I will bear strong and resounding testimony for You before Satan!”
After more than half an hour, the van came to a stop. The policemen dragged me out; I staggered to my feet and looked around. It was already completely dark, and there were only a few empty buildings dotted around without even one light shining—it all looked so gloomy and terrifying. I was escorted into one of the buildings. Inside, there was a desk and a sofa, with an electric bulb hanging from the ceiling which cast a horribly pale light over everything. There were ropes and steel chains lying on the floor, and across the room there was a chair made of thick metal bars. Faced with this frightful scene, I couldn’t help but begin to panic. My legs turned to jelly and I had to sit on the sofa to calm down. Several men then came into the room, and I was loudly scolded by one of them. “What do you think you’re doing, sitting there? Is that yours to sit on? Get up!” While speaking he rushed over to me and kicked me a few times, then grabbed the front of my top, pulled me off the sofa and dragged me over to the metal chair. Another of the policemen said to me, “You know, this is a great thing, this chair. You just have to sit on it for a little while and you’ll ‘get the benefit’ for the rest of your life. This chair has been specially prepared for you believers in Almighty God. We don’t let just anyone sit on it. You just be a good girl, do what we say, and answer our questions honestly, and then you won’t have to sit on it. So tell us, why did you come to Guizhou? Was it to preach your gospel?” I said nothing. A tough-looking policeman standing to one side pointed at my face and swore at me, saying, “Stop playing dumb, damnit! If you don’t speak up, you’ll get a taste of the chair!” I still remained silent.
Just then, a seductively dressed woman came into the room, and it turned out that she had been asked by this gang of policemen to come and persuade me to confess. She exhorted me with false gentleness, saying, “Look, you’re a stranger here, and you don’t have any relatives or friends around. Tell us what we want to know, OK? Once you’ve told us what we want to know, I’ll find you a job, and find you a husband here in Guizhou. I promise I’ll find you a good man, too. But if you don’t want that, then you could come work for me as my nanny. I’ll pay you every month. That way, you could settle down here and put down some roots.” I raised my head and glanced at her, but did not reply. To myself, I thought: “Demons are demons. They don’t acknowledge the existence of God, but just do all manner of terrible things for the sake of money and profit. Now they’re trying to use profit to bribe me and get me to betray God. How could I possibly fall prey to their cunning schemes and become a shameful Judas?” She saw that her “kind-hearted” words had had no effect whatsoever on me and felt that she had lost face in front of the other police, so she immediately dropped the façade and showed her true colors. She removed a strap from her backpack and cruelly whipped me with it a few times, then aggressively threw her backpack onto the sofa. Shaking her head in exasperation, she went and stood to one side. Seeing what had happened, a fat, evil policeman stormed over to me, caught me by the hair, and smashed my head against the wall several times, yelling at me through gritted teeth, “Don’t you know when someone’s trying to do you a favor? Eh? Don’t you? Are you going to talk or not?” My head was banged against the wall so many times that I saw stars, my head was buzzing, the room was spinning, and I fell to the floor. He then dragged me up and flung me down onto the metal chair as though I were nothing more than a little bird. Only after I had recovered a little did I begin to open my eyes a bit—I saw that in his hand he still clutched a strand of my torn hair. I was strapped to the chair from my head to my feet, and a thick steel plate was set before my chest. My handcuffs were attached to the chair, and shackles weighing tens of pounds were attached to my feet, and then they were also chained to the chair. I felt like a statue, unable to move a muscle. The cold and heavy chains, locks and cuffs held me to the metal chair—my suffering was beyond words. Seeing me in pain, the evil police were pleased with themselves and began to mock me, saying, “Isn’t the God you believe in almighty? Why doesn’t He come to save you? Why doesn’t He save you from this tiger chair? You’d better start talking. Your God can’t save you, only we can do that. Tell us what we want to know, and we’ll let you go. You could have a good life. What a waste believing in some God!” I faced the sarcastic remarks of the wicked police very calmly, for God’s words say: “In the last days, God uses words, and not signs and wonders, to make man perfect. He uses His words to expose man, to judge man, to chastise man, and to make man perfect, so that in the words of God, man comes to see the wisdom and loveliness of God, and comes to understand the disposition of God, so that through the words of God, man beholds the deeds of God” (“Knowing God’s Work Today” in The Word Appears in the Flesh). The work God does now is practical work, not supernatural. God uses His words to perfect man and allows His words to become our faith and our life. He uses practical situations to change our life dispositions, and it is this kind of practical work that can better reveal God’s great power and wisdom, and better defeat Satan once and for all. I had been arrested and was being subjected to cruel torture by the CCP government because God wanted to test my faith in Him and see whether or not I was able to live by His words and stand witness for Him. Knowing this, I wished to submit to any situation God permitted to befall me. My silence enraged the gang of evil police and they surged toward me as though they had all gone crazy. They surrounded me and violently beat me. Some punched me hard on the head with their fists, some kicked wildly at my legs, while others tore at my clothes and groped at my face. I seethed with rage in the face of their cruel beatings and hooliganism. If I hadn’t been tightly restrained to that tiger chair, I would have put up a desperate fight! Toward the CCP government, that arch criminal organization, I felt nothing but hatred down to my very bones, and I just had to make a silent resolution: The more it persecutes me, the more my faith will grow, and I will believe in God till my last breath! The more it persecutes me, the more it proves that Almighty God is the one, true God, and the more it proves that I’m following the true way! Faced with these facts, I realized very clearly that this was a war between good and evil, a contest between life and death, and that what I should do was swear to uphold God’s name and God’s testimony, to shame Satan with practical action, thereby enabling God to gain glory. Those wicked police tried to extract a confession from me over several days of torture and interrogation, but I told them nothing about the church. In the end, they were out of options, and said, “She’s a tough cookie, this one. We’ve been questioning her for days now, but she hasn’t said a word.” As I listened to them discussing me, I knew that God’s words had helped me to pass through every hellish gate these demons had placed before me, and that God had protected me so that I could stand witness for Him. From the bottom of my heart, I silently thanked and praised Almighty God!
Over more than ten days of interrogation, I had been sitting in that freezing tiger chair both day and night, and my whole body felt as though it had been plunged into an icy cavern. The cold had seeped into my very marrow, and every joint in my body felt as though it had been torn apart. One of the evil policemen who was quite young saw me shivering from the cold, and so took advantage of the situation to say to me, “You’d better start talking! Even the sturdiest people can’t last long on this chair. If you keep this up, you’ll spend the rest of your life a cripple.” When I heard him say this, I began to weaken and feel anxious, but then I silently called out to God, asking Him to grant me the strength to endure this inhuman torment and to not do anything that might betray God. After praying, God enlightened me with a church hymn that had always been my favorite one to sing: “I don’t care how tough the path of belief in God is, I only carry out God’s will as my vocation; much less do I care whether I receive blessings or suffer misfortune in the future. Now that I am resolved to love God, I will be faithful to the end. No matter what dangers or hardships lurk behind me, no matter what my end will be, in order to welcome God’s day of glory, I closely follow God’s footsteps and strive onward” (“Marching on the Path of Loving God” in Follow the Lamb and Sing New Songs). Every last word of that hymn inspired me, and I sang it over and over in my mind. I couldn’t help but think of the vow I had previously made before God, that no matter what suffering or hardships I had to undergo, I would still expend my life for God and stay loyal to Him till the end. But I was beginning to feel weak and timid after suffering just a small amount of pain—how was this being loyal? Was I not falling prey to Satan’s cunning scheme? Satan wanted me to think of my flesh and betray God, but I knew I mustn’t let it fool me. That I was able to suffer for my belief in God was the most meaningful, valuable thing, it was a glorious thing, and no matter how much I suffered, I could not allow myself to become a pathetic little person who turned my back on my faith and betrayed God. Once I made this resolution to satisfy God, I gradually stopped feeling so cold and the pain in my heart vanished. Once again, I had witnessed God’s wondrous deeds and experienced God’s love. Though the police hadn’t achieved their goal, they still weren’t through with me. They began to take turns torturing me, and they kept me awake all day and all night. If I barely closed my eyes for a second, they would whip me with a switch made of willow, or else they would jab me hard with an electroshock baton. Every time they did that I would feel electricity coursing through me and my whole body would be wracked with convulsions. The pain was so bad that it made me want to die. As they beat me, they shouted, “You still won’t tell us everything, damnit, and you even want to go to sleep! Let’s see if we can torture you to death today!” Their beatings became more and more intense, more and more vicious, and my forlorn cries echoed around the room. Because I was so tightly strapped to the tiger chair and couldn’t move a muscle, I could do nothing but submit to their savagery. Those evil policemen became even more pleased with themselves and would occasionally erupt into raucous laughter. I had been subjected to whippings and electrocution for such a long time that I was covered in welts and cuts, my face, neck, arms and hands were covered in purple bruises, and my whole body was swollen. My body seemed to have gone numb, however, and I wasn’t in as much pain anymore. I knew that this was God caring for me and alleviating my pain, and in my heart I thanked God over and over.
I endured this for almost a month until I truly couldn’t take it any longer. I so wanted to sleep, even for just a little while. Those demons, however, lacked even the slightest trace of humanity. The moment they saw me close my eyes they would immediately throw a full glass of water in my face to startle me awake, and once again I would have to force my eyes open. My strength was utterly spent—I felt as though my life had reached its end. But God was always protecting me, keeping my mind very clear and alert and my faith strong so that I wouldn’t betray Him. Seeing that they hadn’t gained any information from me at all and afraid that I might actually die, the only thing they could do was take me back to the detention house. Five or six days passed and I still hadn’t recovered from their torture, but they once again dragged me out and chained me back to the tiger chair. They attached the heavy shackles to my feet again, and once more proceeded to try to extract a confession from me through beatings, torture and maltreatment. I was tormented there for around ten more days, and it was only when I really couldn’t take it anymore that they finally took me back to the detention house. Five or six more days passed and they played out the entire thing all over again. Six months went by this way, and I don’t even know how many times they put me through it—it was the same torture over and over. I was tortured to the point of utter and complete exhaustion, and from the bottom of my heart I gave up all hope of a future life. I began to refuse food and for several days I refused to drink even one drop of water. They then started forcing water into my mouth; one of them held my head while another held my face, opened my mouth and poured water into it. The water flowed around my mouth, down my neck and soaked my clothes. My whole body felt freezing cold and I tried to struggle, but I didn’t even have the strength to move my head. Seeing that refusing food was also a useless endeavor, I decided to take the opportunity afforded by going to the toilet to smash my head against the wall and kill myself. Dragging my incredibly heavy shackles along, I staggered one step at a time toward the toilet, clutching at the wall the whole way. Because I hadn’t eaten in so long, my eyes were all blurry and I couldn’t quite see where I was going; I fell down many times along the way. Through the haze I saw that my ankles had been turned into a mess of bleeding flesh by the steel shackles, and that they were bleeding profusely. When I reached a window, I lifted my head and looked outside. I saw people in the distance walking to and fro, going about their business, and all of a sudden I felt a wonderful stirring deep down inside me, and I thought: “Out of all these millions of people, how many believe in Almighty God? I am one of the lucky ones, for God has plucked me—such an unremarkable person—out of the crowd, and has used His words to water and provide for me, leading me every step of the way till now. I’ve been so greatly blessed by God, so why do I seek death? Wouldn’t I really hurt God by doing that?” Just then, God’s words came into my mind: “[D]uring these last days you must bear testimony to God. No matter how great your suffering, you should go on to the very end, and even at your last breath, still you must be faithful to God, and at the mercy of God; only this is truly loving God, and only this is the strong and resounding testimony” (“Only by Experiencing Painful Trials Can You Know the Loveliness of God” in The Word Appears in the Flesh). Every word, replete with encouragement and anticipation, warmed and inspired my heart, and I felt doubly moved—I’d found the courage to go on. I gave myself an internal pep talk: “The demons can only ruin my body, but they cannot destroy my desire to satisfy God. My heart will forever belong to God. I will be strong; I will never capitulate!” I then made my way back, step by step, dragging my heavy shackles. In my dazed state, I thought of the Lord Jesus, completely covered in wounds, making His tortuous way to Golgotha, utterly exhausted and bearing that heavy cross on His back, and then these words from Almighty God came to mind: “On the road to Jerusalem, Jesus was in agony, as if a knife were being twisted in His heart, yet He had not the slightest intention of going back on His word; always there was a powerful force compelling Him onward to where He would be crucified” (“How to Serve in Harmony With God’s Will” in The Word Appears in the Flesh). At that moment, I couldn’t hold back my tears any longer, and they flowed freely down my cheeks. I said a prayer to God in my heart: “O God! You are so holy, and You are supreme, and yet to save us You personally became flesh. You suffered terrible humiliation and pain and were crucified for our sakes. O God! Who has ever known Your sorrow and Your pain? Who has ever understood or appreciated the painstaking price You paid for our sakes? I suffer this hardship now so that I might attain salvation. Moreover, I suffer it in order to clearly see the CCP government’s evil essence while I suffer cruelty at the hands of its demons, so that I’m never deceived or fooled by it again, and so that I might thereby be rid of its dark influence. And yet I’ve not shown any consideration for Your will, but have only been thinking of my own flesh and wishing to die so that the torment of this pain may come to an end. I’m such a coward and so despicable! O God! You expend Yourself and suffer for us at all times, and You devote all Your love to us. O God! I can do nothing now, but wish only to dedicate my heart wholly to You, to follow You to the end no matter how much I may suffer, and to stand witness to satisfy You!” I hadn’t shed a single tear over several months of cruel beatings and torture, so when I got back to the interrogation room the evil policemen saw that my face was wet with tears and thought that I was ready to crack. The fat one among them looked very pleased with himself and smiled at me, saying, “Have you thought it through? Will you play ball?” I completely ignored him and his face went purple right away. Suddenly, he lifted an arm and proceeded to slap me across the face more times than I could count. My face was left burning with pain while blood trickled from the corners of my mouth and dripped down onto the floor. Another of the wicked policemen threw a glass of water in my face and yelled through clenched teeth, “We don’t care if you don’t play ball. This world belongs to the Communist Party now, and if you don’t talk, we can still sentence you to prison!” But no matter how they tried to threaten and intimidate me, I still didn’t say a word.
Although the police couldn’t find any evidence to support charging me with a crime, they still wouldn’t give up, but continued to try to torture a confession out of me. Late one night, several of them got drunk and staggered into the interrogation room. One of them, eyeing me lasciviously, seemed to come up with an idea and said, “Strip her and hang her up. Then we’ll see if she plays ball.” Hearing him say this left me terrified, and in my heart I desperately called out to God for Him to curse these beasts and thwart their lustful ploys. They released me from the tiger chair, but I could barely stand with those heavy shackles around my ankles. They surrounded me and began to kick me around like a soccer ball, spitting melon seed husks into my face and yelling over and over, “Will you play ball? If you won’t be nice to us, then we’ll make sure your life isn’t worth living! Where is your God now? Isn’t He almighty? Let Him strike us down!” Another said, “Wang needs a wife, how about we just give her to him? Haha …” Seeing their demonic faces, my hatred for them burned so hot that all my tears were dried away. All I could do was pray to God and ask Him to protect my heart so that I would not betray Him, and so that I might submit to God’s orchestrations whether I lived or died. In the end, the evil police had played all their cards but had still not managed to get one word out of me. All out of options, they could do nothing but make a telephone call and report to their superiors. “This woman is as tough as nails. She’s a modern-day Liu Hulan. We could beat her to death and she still wouldn’t talk. There’s nothing else we can do!” Seeing them look so despondent, I thanked God over and over in my heart. It was the guidance of God’s words that had enabled me to overcome their cruel torture time and time again. May all glory be to Almighty God!
Despite the fact that countless interrogations had yielded them nothing, the CCP government charged me with obstructing the enforcement of the law and sentenced me to a fixed sentence of seven years in prison. The two brothers who had been arrested with me were likewise charged and sentenced to five years in prison. After having undergone eight months of inhuman torment, hearing this verdict of seven years in prison not only caused me no pain or distress, but on the contrary, I felt at ease and, even more so, I felt honored. This was because over the previous eight months, I had experienced God’s guidance every step of the way and had enjoyed God’s boundless love and protection. This had enabled me to miraculously survive the cruel devastation that would otherwise have been beyond the limits of my endurance, and I had been able to stand witness. This was the greatest comfort God could bestow on me, and I offered up my thanks and praise to God from the bottom of my heart!
On November 3, 2008, I was sent to the First Women’s Prison to serve my sentence, and thus began my long prison life. There was an incredibly strict regime of rules in the prison; we got up at 6 a.m. and started work, and then worked all through the day till nightfall. Mealtimes and toilet breaks were as fraught as if we were in a warzone, and the prisoners weren’t allowed even a modicum of slack. The prison guards overloaded us with work so that they could profit even more from our labor, and they were more merciless to those who believed in God. Living in such an environment, I was always on tenterhooks—each day felt as long as a year. I was given the hardest and heaviest tasks in prison, and the food I was given to eat wasn’t even fit for dogs—a half-raw, black, tiny steamed bun and some yellow, dried up old cabbage leaves. In an effort to get my sentence reduced for good behavior, I would often work as hard as I could from dawn till dusk, and would even pull all-nighters to meet the production quota which was beyond my physical ability. I would be on my feet each day for 15 or 16 hours in the workshop, constantly turning the handle on the semi-automatic sweater-making machine. Both my legs swelled up and they would often ache and feel weak. Still, I never dared to slow down, because there were prison guards armed with electroshock batons constantly patrolling the workshop, and they would punish anyone they saw not working absolutely flat out, and withhold good behavior points from the prisoners. The incessant, exhausting labor left me utterly fatigued in body and mind. Though I was still young, much of my hair turned gray, and on many occasions I almost fainted onto the machine. Had it not been for God watching over me, I might not have survived. Ultimately, under the protection of God, I obtained two opportunities to have my sentence reduced, and I was able to walk out of that hell on earth two years early.
After undergoing as long as eight months of brutal torture and five years of imprisonment at the hands of the CCP government, both my body and mind had become severely damaged. I was terrified of encountering strangers for a long time after my release. In particular, whenever I came across a busy place with lots of people all bustling around, scenes of those evil police torturing me would come flooding back, and I would involuntarily feel a deep sense of terror and uneasiness inside. My menstrual cycles had been thrown into chaos from being chained to that metal chair for so long, and I was ravaged by all kinds of illnesses. Thinking back now over those interminable, painful months, although I experienced a great deal of pain and suffering, I saw clearly that the “freedom of religious belief” and “the lawful rights and interests of citizens are protected by law” often touted by the CCP government are just ploys to conceal their sins and their evil essence. At the same time, I also came to truly experience and appreciate God’s almightiness, sovereignty, authority and power, and I could feel God’s concern and mercy for me. All these things were the precious and bountiful riches of life which God bestowed on me. God’s work is practical and normal, and He permits the persecution of Satan and demons to come upon us. But while the demons frantically wreak their harm upon us, God is always there, silently watching over us and protecting us, using His words of authority and might to enlighten and guide us. God grants us faith and love, and He conquers and defeats the enemy Satan, thus gaining glory. I praise God’s wisdom and loveliness from the bottom of my heart!
I am now back in the church and have returned to be with my brothers and sisters. Under the guidance of God’s love, I live the church life, and together with my brothers and sisters, with one accord, we spread the kingdom gospel. My life is overflowing with vigor and vitality. I am now filled with faith for God’s work. I can practically see the beautiful sight of the kingdom of God manifesting on the earth, and I can’t help but sing God’s praises! “Christ’s kingdom has descended on earth. God’s word has conquered the world, and it has reigned on earth. All is established and completed by the word of God, for us to see with our very own eyes. We cheer! We praise! We celebrate the arrival of Christ’s kingdom on earth! We cheer! We praise! We celebrate a new Jerusalem descending from heaven. God’s word is among us, it lives among us, it’s with us in our every move and thought. … The beauty of the kingdom is bright and eternal. All people are proclaiming the word of God, submitting to His word and worshiping Him. The whole universe roils in jubilation. We cheer! We praise! We celebrate God’s almightiness and wisdom! We cheer! We praise! We celebrate that His work is done! We cheer! We praise! Almighty God leads us into Canaan Himself, so we can enjoy His riches!” (“Christ’s Kingdom Has Descended on Earth” in Follow the Lamb and Sing New Songs).

2020.09.21 14:39 Army_Bot Summary For: Weekly Question Thread (9/14/2020 to 9/20/2020)

I work in a decently-paying job, have been married for one year, and have a bachelor’s in Finance.
I’m 30 years old and will soon be receiving my green card. Since June, I have felt a call to serve this country and am soon beginning to train to prepare myself for a late-2021 enlistment (Can’t commission until I become a US citizen).
I read a lot here from people that believe that older guys who are “set” career-wise shouldn’t bother entering the Army, that it’s a marriage-killer and thankless life, and that people who join out of patriotism are naïve.
Have any of you ever met someone that joined in similar circumstances and didn’t live to regret it?

I’m about to be rejoining the Army after getting a general discharge for failure to adapt. The recruiters said I should be looking A-okay to rejoin but I will most likely not get to pick my MOS this time, which I am TOTALLY okay with. I just want to make it this time.
My only question is, if I am forced to become a Cook, would I be able to become a Drill Sergeant while under that MOS?
This will be my second time going through basic training, and I am expecting to do as well as I can on what ever I can in order to make my career look it’s best for when I eventually go back the civilian world.

Should I aim to to join the 160th SOAR? I’m a high school senior who’s enlisting as a 15T (helicopter mechanic) in the spring once I graduate and I’m wondering if I should make it a goal to join the 160th in the future.
The reason I ask this is because I’m a girl and I’m worried about what the culture is like. I know that women are allowed to join the 160th but I’m assuming that it’s still pretty male-dominated even more so than a regular army unit. And because it’s so male-dominated, in addition to being a special ops force, I’m just wary about having to deal with way more toxicity/sexism than I can handle(not to imply that all men are sexist). Could anyone share their insight? Is toxicity towards females a thing and if it is should I join despite it? Would I have to deal with toxicity even if I work to pass all my PT tests and do my job correctly?

What's the current body fat percentage requirement for enlisting? I'm getting conflicting answers from my recruiter vs what I'm seeing on the goarmy website. Last time I checked, I was either 6'0" or 6'1", but my recruiter has me at 5'10", and is telling me I need to hit 24% body fat (I'm at 26% currently). He's telling me there's a program I can join where if I'm over the body fat percentage by 2%, I can still enlist, but it would be as Army needs, and it just doesn't seem like I'm being told all the correct information.
Also, I want to enlist as 17C, however I'm aware that it's difficult to get into. Realistically, I would just like to get a job in the security field in the civilian world once I get out, so I figured 17C or maybe something like 25B would suit me. I also have a list of some other jobs that I might like if those aren't available, however, what are the chances that 17C and 25B are open atm?
This is my backup list: 88M, 36B, 15Y, 35T, 94F, 94E
Are these jobs hard to get into? I'm just not wanting to try and enlist and get stuck as infantry, which is what my recruiter told me is a likely possibility if I don't hit the body fat percentage (I also can't find any information about the 2% body fat program or w/e)

Fuck man I’m re-enlisting in the Guard Thursday. My dumbass can’t find my original birth certificate (I have like 600 copies though) and my question is for MEPS does it have to be the original? I have like 600 copies from my mobilization to Kuwait two years ago but I can’t find my original anywhere. I have literally every other document neatly filed in my safe but I can’t find my original fucking birth certificate. My parents are looking to see if they have it, but I don’t think they do. The MOS I want only has one open slot in my state and it’s only reserved until the day after I’m scheduled for MEPS. Do I need the original copy? I can get an official copy but I’m afraid it won’t arrive in time.
TLDR-Do I need my original birth certificate for MEPS or is a copy given to me by the Army okay?

I’m waiting to look at jobs with my recruiter and after some research I decided to pursue the 35L counterintelligence agent MOS. However, I’ve always been interested in the 37F Psy ops field, but worried about ending up as needs of the Army if something didn’t work out. Would it be worth it though picking 37F if it was open? Or would it be safer to pick 35L and later apply for Psy ops? I’d be joining as a E-4 and have a bachelors in psych. I would say I’m in okay shape but definitely wouldn’t stand out in my current state; I consider myself to have a never quit attitude though and work well with others. I’m also scared of heights and the “stomach drop” sensation though, which worries me for something like Airborne, though people who have done it have told me it doesn’t produce either of these sensations. Sorry if these are all stupid questions just trying to make the most informed decision.

I have an RE Code 3 and only 8 months AD service. Looking at the PS business rules, "Applicants in the grade of E-4 and below with 48 months or less active duty are not restricted to the HRC business rules, therefore authorized to enlist Option 3 (Training of Choice)." What does this mean? Is this like picking an MOS in the office or is the list still populated at MEPS with undermanned jobs? The rules also mention over 179 active service so maybe there is a caveat to this training of choice?

Could anyone give me like a rundown of all the stuff I'm gonna have to pass? I've been hitting the gym every day, powerlifting and doing pushups and any weight-bearing exercise I can think of, but I'd like to know what I should specifically be preparing myself for.

I'm currently almost 4 years into the Army, serving a 6 year contract after I finished my first 3 year contract in 2019. I do not want to leave the Army at all, but I'm rethinking my current MOS (11B). I don't hate it, but I might want to do something different in line with my actual career since I'm only in the National Guard. I'm not the best soldier in the company, but I do my job as an infantryman and I don't have any flags or anything like that which would be a negative. How hard is it for me to switch MOS mid-contract? Is it even possible?
I've had the whole infantry experience (as much as I can as NG), gotten a CIB, just looking for something new maybe. I don't see infantry being useful anywhere else in civilian life, so I'm curious.

I got an honorable discharge from the Airforce back in February for not showing up to the PRE-basic training I thought was optional.. yea, never even went to basic training and got the boot. That's the Airforce, and why I'm in this Reddit asking my stupid question instead.
I haven't received my papers that the Army says I need, and the Airforce is still sending me surveys and crap. Did covid set them back that far?? My experience with the army was logistical hell without covid so I could see the Airforce could be having issues.

How fast should one expect to rank up as a 13R on a four year contract, given they aren’t being stupid and handicapping themselves from a promotion? I’m expecting to end off my first contract as a PFC or SPC, but I’ve been curious since 13R appears to be in pretty low density, given the incentives to list as one, and from what I’m aware, lower density MOS’s rank up at a typically quicker pace. I tried asking my DS’s in basic, but they weren’t sure.

Hey everyone, I'm a senior in college this year and recently decided I want to serve in the Army in some way when I graduate. I was looking go in as a 68w combat medic with the goals of working as either a paramedic, or getting further schooling for a DPT degree in the future. The thing I'm stuck on right now is whether I should join the national guard or go full time active duty in the army. To clarify, I want to join to get hands-on medical experience and learn to work in a fast paced environment. I don't necessarily care about rank or pay, but education benefits (loan payment, tuition assistance) are important to me. I have two questions:
1) What are the benefits/drawbacks of going active duty 68w vs. part time in the Guard?
2) If I try to go in as an Medical Corps Officer, will I actually get hands on experience treating injuries, or is that just more of a Manager position for Healthcare workers?
If anyone here is currently a 68w I'd really like to hear what your experience is like. Thank you in advance 👊🏽🇺🇸

Realistically, I would just like to get a job in the security field in the civilian world once I get out, so I figured 17C or maybe something like 25B would suit me. I also have a list of some other jobs that I might like if those aren't available, however, what are the chances that 17C and 25B are open atm?
This is my backup list: 88M, 36B, 15Y, 35T, 94F, 94E
Are these jobs hard to get into? I'm just not wanting to try and enlist and get stuck as infantry, which is what my recruiter told me is a likely possibility if I don't hit the body fat percentage (I also can't find any information about the 2% body fat program or w/e)

When does the "years of service" counter start when commissioning out of ROTC? I am a fresh LT, no prior service/SMP but MyPay shows me having 3 years of service. I'm almost certain cadet time is worth absolutely nothing (as it should, in regards to pay). If I ignore this will it continue to climb or is there a risk of someone noticing and having to pay back Uncle Sam?

Does anyone know if they allow trainees to request/send out absentee ballots from basic training/AIT? Shipping soon and can't seem to find an answer to this.
I thought I remembered there being officers/NCOs that specifically handle soldier voting needs, but I wasn't sure if they applied to basic training recruits or if they were available with covid causing trouble/quarantines, and such.
Asked my recruiter and he just said to ask the Drill Sergeants when I'm there.

I’m really curious about the 37F MOS (Psychological Operations Specialist), but I haven’t been able to find much information apart from the Army website. I’m interested in possibly pursuing this as a career and would like to hear from someone with firsthand experience. My ASVAB score was 88 (a bit rusty on mathematics) , and I took the DLAB 2 years ago and scored a 98 if I’m not mistaken. Thanks in advance
EDIT: finally found my notepad where I wrote down all of my scores/goals when I was in the recruitment stages, the above post now reflects this

Fuck man I’m re-enlisting in the Guard Thursday. My dumbass can’t find my original birth certificate (I have like 600 copies though) and my question is for MEPS does it have to be the original? I have like 600 copies from my mobilization to Kuwait two years ago but I can’t find my original anywhere. I have literally every other document neatly filed in my safe but I can’t find my original fucking birth certificate. My parents are looking to see if they have it, but I don’t think they do. The MOS I want only has one open slot in my state and it’s only reserved until the day after I’m scheduled for MEPS. Do I need the original copy? I can get an official copy but I’m afraid it won’t arrive in time.
TLDR-Do I need my original birth certificate for MEPS or is a copy given to me by the Army okay?

I’m waiting to look at jobs with my recruiter and after some research I decided to pursue the 35L counterintelligence agent MOS. However, I’ve always been interested in the 37F Psy ops field, but worried about ending up as needs of the Army if something didn’t work out. Would it be worth it though picking 37F if it was open? Or would it be safer to pick 35L and later apply for Psy ops? I’d be joining as a E-4 and have a bachelors in psych. I would say I’m in okay shape but definitely wouldn’t stand out in my current state; I consider myself to have a never quit attitude though and work well with others. I’m also scared of heights and the “stomach drop” sensation though, which worries me for something like Airborne, though people who have done it have told me it doesn’t produce either of these sensations. Sorry if these are all stupid questions just trying to make the most informed decision.

I have an RE Code 3 and only 8 months AD service. Looking at the PS business rules, "Applicants in the grade of E-4 and below with 48 months or less active duty are not restricted to the HRC business rules, therefore authorized to enlist Option 3 (Training of Choice)." What does this mean? Is this like picking an MOS in the office or is the list still populated at MEPS with undermanned jobs? The rules also mention over 179 active service so maybe there is a caveat to this training of choice?

I'm currently almost 4 years into the Army, serving a 6 year contract after I finished my first 3 year contract in 2019. I do not want to leave the Army at all, but I'm rethinking my current MOS (11B). I don't hate it, but I might want to do something different in line with my actual career since I'm only in the National Guard. I'm not the best soldier in the company, but I do my job as an infantryman and I don't have any flags or anything like that which would be a negative. How hard is it for me to switch MOS mid-contract? Is it even possible?
I've had the whole infantry experience (as much as I can as NG), gotten a CIB, just looking for something new maybe. I don't see infantry being useful anywhere else in civilian life, so I'm curious.

Hey everyone, I'm a senior in college this year and recently decided I want to serve in the Army in some way when I graduate. I was looking go in as a 68w combat medic with the goals of working as either a paramedic, or getting further schooling for a DPT degree in the future. The thing I'm stuck on right now is whether I should join the national guard or go full time active duty in the army. To clarify, I want to join to get hands-on medical experience and learn to work in a fast paced environment. I don't necessarily care about rank or pay, but education benefits (loan payment, tuition assistance) are important to me. I have two questions:
1) What are the benefits/drawbacks of going active duty 68w vs. part time in the Guard?
2) If I try to go in as an Medical Corps Officer, will I actually get hands on experience treating injuries, or is that just more of a Manager position for Healthcare workers?
If anyone here is currently a 68w I'd really like to hear what your experience is like. Thank you in advance 👊🏽🇺🇸

2020.09.21 14:21 cPharoah Requiem for a Race, Week 4: the Western States 100 Mile Endurance Run

History:
If you’ve never heard of Western States before, congrats! You probably don’t run ultramarathons, didn’t grow up in Northern California, or you just don’t pay an excessive amount of attention to more “niche” running events. If you HAVE heard of Western States, and especially if you’ve spent the past few years running qualifiers and amassing lottery tickets to try to get into the race, I’m sorry in advance.
Now, a lot of this section will be coming almost entirely from wser.org, so if you have further questions I’d recommend checking out their in-depth history pages and not asking me, because I am a dummy.
The Western States 100 mile Endurance Run has its roots in horseback riding. Back in 1955, Wendell T. Robie and a few pals rode a portion of the Western States Trail from the post office in Tahoe City to Auburn, proving that horses could still cover 100 miles in one day. Robie went on to found the Western States Trail Foundation and organized the annual Western States Trail Ride, also known as the Tevis Cup “100 Miles – One Day” Ride. For those unaware, the Western States Trail is a nationally dedicated recreational trail that stretches from Salt Lake City, Utah, to Sacramento, California.
In 1974, Gordy Ainsleigh joined the horses of the Tevis up. His horse had gone lame and he didn’t have time to find another, so he decided to try it on foot instead. Twenty-three hours and forty-two minutes later Gordy arrived in Auburn, proving that a runner could indeed run the entire trail within the 24-hour time limit of the Tevis Cup – 100 miles in one day.
In 1977, 14 men participated in the 1st official Western States Endurance Run, which was held in conjunction with the Tevis Cup Ride. Runners were monitored by a doctor at the three veterinary stops set up for the horses, and although the race organization transported the entrant's gear, runners were responsible for producing all of their own supplies, except water. Three runners finished the course: Andy Gonzales, age 22, in the record-breaking time of 22:57, and Peter Mattei and Ralph Paffenbarger, ages 53 and 54, who tied in 28:36 (and the 30-hour award was born!).
In the fall of 1977, the Board of Directors for the Western States Endurance Run was formed as part of the Western States Trail Foundation. The Run organization later became its own entity and is now known as the Western States Endurance Run Foundation. The following years, the race grew dramatically and in 1981 a lottery system was established due to the increasing number of entries and the need to limit the number of entrants due to new conditions required for use of the newly created Granite Chief Wilderness Area.
Famous Finishers:
The Course:
So, at its most basic level, Western States is a net downhill 100 mile run from Olympic Valley to the track at Placer High in Auburn. It starts at 5 am on Saturday of the last full weekend in June. There is a 30 hour cutoff to be an official race finisher (so you must finish by 10:59:59 am on Sunday). Overall, the race has 18,090 ft of elevation gain and 22,970 ft of elevation loss. So, a net downhill, but not an easy one. The highest part of the course is Emigrant Pass, at around mile 4.5.
Because of the varied terrain you traverse over the course of the race, the weather conditions can vary as well. Temperatures can range from 20 degrees F at the start (especially during a snow year) to 110+ degrees F in the canyons. There is an alternative route in the beginning for years when those parts of the trail would be impassable due to snow.
There are 20 aid stations along the course (not counting the start and finish), with the first located at mile 10.3 and the last located at mile 98.9. If you’re familiar with the race at all, you’ve probably heard of at least a few of them (“the race doesn’t start till Foresthill” is a popular phrase, for one). They’re very useful to know when referring to different parts of the course, and are typically used instead of referring to mile markers.
There are about 4 distinct sections of the course, depending on who you ask: Olympic Valley-Robinson Flat (mile 0-30), Robinson Flat-Foresthill (mile 30-62), Foresthill-Rucky Chucky (mile 62-78), and Rucky Chucky-Finish (mile 78-100).
Entry:
Now, you may be thinking to yourself: “Wow! This race sounds cool! I’m going to go sign up for next year!” (or, maybe you’re sane and you think it sounds brutal). Due to the limited number of starters allowed, Western States has a lottery for entry. In order to enter the lottery, you need to earn a ticket by finishing a qualifying race. There are approximately 175 qualifying races across the globe, ranging in distance from 100 km to 135 miles. After you run your first qualifier, you can put 1 ticket into the lottery. After you inevitably don’t get picked and run another qualifier the year after, your tickets double. Rinse, repeat, and you wind up with “8 year losers” who have been trying to get into the race for 8 years straight unsuccessfully and who have 128 tickets in the lottery. There are a few other ways to get in, like racing your way in by doing well at a Golden Ticket race or getting a sponsor spot (if you know the right people, I guess), but most of us plebs get in via the lottery (eventually).
In 2020, there were 6,664 applicants to the lottery and 27,872 tickets amongst them. If you had 1 ticket in the lottery, you had approximately a 1.3% chance of getting in the race. If you listened to my episode of the 1609 podcast (plug), you can hear me joke about how I’m totally going to get into Western, which was funny in the moment because I was so obviously not going to get in.
The lottery is done in the auditorium of Placer High in Auburn, CA and streamed on facebook. Imagine my surprise when my single ticket got pulled as I was standing in the middle of my favorite running store surrounded by many people who had many more tickets than me (and much more experience at running ultras). As you might imagine, with only one finished hundred miler under my belt, I felt severely unprepared to make my way from Squaw to Auburn in June.
What My Plan Was:
After recovering from the shock of getting in, I started to freak out. I hired a coach (Stephanie Howe, a fantastic ultrarunner who has a history with Western and knows the race very well). I hadn’t even begun training in earnest for Western when the pandemic started to creep into public consciousness. At first, I ignored my gut feeling and continued to train with the goal of Western States in mind. I did some long-ish mountain runs in March (16mi/13mi and 10mi/18mi back to back longs) and mid-week tempo workouts. The plan was to start with tempo workouts for a few weeks, then move to steady-state, then really hone in on race specific workouts. For race specificity for a race like Western, I was going to work in some post-workout sauna sessions and really focus on matching the course profile as well as I could during my long runs. I was also planning to run the Quad Rock 50 miler as a tune up (Addie Bracy did that last year, and it worked out pretty well for her, considering she placed in the top ten women!). I was going to peak at around 70-80 miles per week and try to get in plenty of vert. I had peaked at 70 mpw for Javelina (my first hundred miler), and I wanted to try to have an even better training cycle for Western.
What I Changed:
On March 27th, I got the email that Western States had been cancelled, and all entrants would be allowed to rollover their entry to the 2021 race. I was hella bummed, but I decided to try to keep training anyways and just try to get fit and build a huge base for 2021. I kept doing long runs, with a back to back 20/10 mile weekend in early April. By the beginning of May, despite my best efforts, I started to have a rough time keeping up with my planned training. Even though I really liked her, I stopped working with my coach because I was not mentally in a great place with running and it was just making me more stressed.
By May, I was running terribly. I did a 5k time trial and ran my slowest 5k in over three years. I felt like I could barely muster the energy to run a mile without stopping to walk. I wasn’t sick, but I was mentally not well. I left Colorado and went home to Pennsylvania for a month and a half. I also broke up with my boyfriend of 2.5 years. After coming home and getting down to sea level for the first time in two years, I started to feel better and run normally again. From mid-May to now, I’ve just been kinda running aimlessly. No long runs over ~15 miles, trying to get in one workout (or at the very least strides) every week, aiming for about 40-50 mpw volume.
Current Plans:
I am technically signed up for CIM in December, but realistically that’s not happening (because I don’t want to train for a marathon right now). I’m eyeing up a potential fixed time event in October, but I’m wary about the travel required. I think what’s most likely is that I’ll just continue running 40-50 mpw with occasional workouts and no “ultra long” long runs until February-ish. I’d like to build my volume up a bit in February/March before fully diving into Western States training. I was very lucky that they gave all of us the option to roll over into 2021, and I didn’t have to go back in the lottery and keep trying. I’m trying to look at this as a bit of a blessing in disguise. I’ve only been running since 2016, and only doing ultras since 2017. I still feel like a baby in this sport, and I want to give Western States everything I’m capable of. An extra year to train and stay consistent and build lifetime miles should be pretty beneficial considering how little experience I have compared to everyone else on that start line. I also might be able to do the Memorial Day Training Camp in 2021 (if there are spots), so fingers crossed!
Ideally, in a perfect world, I’d love to go sub 24 (have y’all seen that buckle??? SO beautiful). I’m not at all confident in my ability to do that, but it’s always going to be in the back of my mind. Honestly, I just want to finish before the cutoff. I haven’t decided yet if I’m going to hire a coach again or not. I really liked the idea of having someone to tell me what to do, especially someone who knows the race much better than I do, but I’ve found I don’t actually like the reality of being told what to do. I might just ask a lot of people a lot of questions, and just kinda wing it from there. It’s what I do best.

2020.09.21 08:59 Janejanet Are you looking for a mistress to train and feminized you to become a perfect sissy? Kik me janejanet 1234

I’d like to share some experience, ideas, and tips I’ve put together after about 19 years of dominating my sissies. This is all my personal experience, so it won’t apply to everyone . Firstly, I need to share that we aren’t in a 24/7 Domme-sub relationship. That doesn’t interest me or my BF. My BF came to me about 4 ½ years ago and confessed some of his desires for femdom sex, and I decided to entertain it with him. It’s been a lot of fun, but I’m not making it a “lifestyle”, although we do have some “extended” sessions, which I’ll detail later in this post. Its something we do for fun in the bedroom (well, not always in the bedroom). We still have frequent “vanilla” sex, he’s actually quite good at it. :) That being said, I’m not here to pass judgement on anyone else, or pretend to be an expert on the subject of BDSM. My current BF is the only person I’ve played with like this, but we’ve learned a lot about femdom by experimenting, reading, and talking to each other. A good portion of these ideas and suggestions were his idea, and many are mine. Some may think that this is topping from the bottom, but I don’t take it too seriously. This is all just in good fun for us. Also, even though I talk about some of the stuff below being “forced”, that’s not to imply he hasn’t consented. We always have a safeword, and we discuss generalities before we decide on trying something new (although I do definitely surprise him with new activities to push his limits). Also, keep safety in mind with any activity. Not all of this is safe for every couple or every person. So, with all that out of the way, lets get to it! I approach femdom by classifying activities into 4 categories, then I put them together for an experience. The categories I use are: Degradation/Humiliation, Pain and Control, Frustration/Teasing, and Service. I’ll go over activities in each then describe how I put them together. DEGRADATION/HUMILIATION
This is a very fun category and can include a lot of different things. Here’s a list of activities that I enjoy inflicting on him. Forced feminization - I frequently make him wear women’s clothing during our sessions. This can include lots of different outfits. Feel free to mix and match to your taste. Amazon is great for getting lingerie on a budget. I like to go with really girly colors and patterns for my guy. My favorites are:
High heels. These are an absolute necessity. You don’t need to spend a lot of money on these, but you might want more than one pair if you insist his outfits match.
Lingerie. This can include teddies, stockings, babydoll, fishnet dresses, etc.
Just a pair of panties. This makes him feel very exposed. I like ones that ride up his little butt (cheekies, thongs), but still cover his entire penis. Don’t let him wear anything else.
Pasties. This is very, very fun. Pasties are cheap, and not something you ever see a man wearing. A pair of high heels, pink thong, and some pasties is great outfit for him to wear while he cleans the bathroom for you.
Schoolgirl outfit. This is a classic, and can lead to some incredible role-playing situations. The skirt should be short enough you can see his little white panties peeking out without even bending over.
French Maid. Another classic, useful for the Service category I’ll go into later.
Makeup. This is a favorite activity. I love giving him a makeover. Super slutty makeup is the best and can be combined with any outfit.
Tight jeans, yoga pants, leggings. Pair these with a skin tight top and you’ve got a great outfit for lounging around the house.
Short shorts. These can be cut off jean type shorts, yoga style shorts, or anything you like. The shorter the better.
Corset. Use this to give him a girlish figure!
Women’s bodystocking. These are hilarious. They come in all kinds of patterns and colors, and are really cheap.
Halloween costumes. Great for any time of year! Amazon has cheap playboy bunny outfits, tinkerbell costumes, sexy nurse, etc. There are so many to choose from!
Pegging/dildo play - This falls into the pain category as well depending on your mood. I really feel that in order to make this act as degrading as possible, its important to get a dildo that looks and feels like a real penis. It should have balls and be a realistic skin tone. It should also be at least slightly bigger than his own penis (within reason). A big aspect that makes pegging so humiliating is the mental side to it. Obviously, there’s some physical to it as well, but just being forced to “deal” with a dick is mortifying to most straight men. Some activities involving your strapon or dildo:
Deepthroat training. Let’s eliminate that gag reflex ladies! Seriously one of the most degrading things you can do to your man is fucking his face. I like to recreate positions from porn in this activity. Relax on the couch or chair while wearing your strapon. Put him on his knees and make him get to work. If he’s not going deep enough grab his hair and force his face down on that dick! Trust me, he can take it. Don’t be gentle. Make sure he maintains eye contact like a good little porn star! I also like to have him lay on his back on the bed or couch, with his head hanging over the side and cram my dick down his throat. Do this until he gags, over and over, he’ll be drooling all over himself soon enough. Have him lie down on his back, then straddle his upper chest/neck area so the only thing you can see is his face. Put your dildo in his mouth and jackhammer that thing down his throat. Don’t be scared of hurting him, even if your dildo is on the large side of realistic. he’ll eventually be able to take it balls deep. He might complain that it doesn’t fit. Well, its your job to MAKE it fit. Yes he’s going to cough and gag, a lot, yes he’s going to have a lot of drool and mucus coming out of his mouth. That’s OK. Don’t be deterred by any sounds, drool, or complaints. Also give him instructions and compliments when appropriate (“yeah, show me your tongue” “hands behind your back and open wide bitch” “give me that throat” “that’s a good little cocksucker”)
EDIT: I’ve received several questions about this point. I’ll clarify exactly what were doing here and why. When I make him suck my dildo, I’m not getting any physical pleasure out of it and neither is he. This is not meant to be physically pleasurable to us, it’s meant to make him feel like my bitch. When you do this, make it an ordeal he needs to suffer through. When he’s on his knees in front of you, fuck his mouth hard and fast. Really make an effort to get your entire dildo down his throat as you thrust in and out. Make him suffer here for quite some time, 5, 10, 15 minutes even. Don’t let him get away with pulling his head away or anything either. Make him keep your dick in his mouth, see how long you can keep it buried balls deep in his mouth, lock your legs around his head if necessary. His jaw and throat should be very sore after this ordeal, and his face should be a mess of slobber and spit. Once he can take your whole dildo down his throat without gagging, its time to upgrade to something longer and/or thicker. Your goal should be to have him performing at THIS LEVEL and he won’t get there without proper training.
Butt fucking. Work up to this using your fingers, plugs (he should wear a large sized one for a while before a pegging session), and other toys, but eventually your goal should be forceful pounding. Make him feel what its like to really get fucked. While pegging him, yank his hair, push his face down into the bed or floor, slap his ass. Be creative with positions and locations. One of my favorites is the tile kitchen floor, he doesn’t have to be comfortable while getting fucked. Use lots and lots of lube here, it makes getting your dick in a lot easier on both of you.
Dildo masturbation. Make him suck and fuck himself with a dildo or other toys for your amusement. This one can be done with very minimal effort on your part. Just give him a toy, order him to the corner, and tell him to get it up his ass.
Using other objects to fuck him with. This can be a lot of fun, but be careful. Some items I’ve fucked him with: Beer bottle, drumsticks, vodka bottle,
Forced Nudity - This one is simple, but you can spice it up with toys if you like. Simply order him to be naked while you remain clothed. If you like, make him wear a butt plug that you can smack and wiggle around while he gets you a drink. Put a collar on him if you want, or combine this with forced feminization from above (for example make him wear only high heels, lipstick, and a chastity cage for the evening). Sometimes its fun to combine this with pegging. I’ll strap my dick on over my jeans, while he’s completely naked. Its a very humbling experience for him. I also frequently have him sleep naked.
Forced Performances. This is very entertaining and again a low-effort humiliation. Sometimes I like to put on some music and have him dance for me. I’ll make him perform a little strip tease, twerk, etc. Sometimes I will have him masturbate for me. I’ll give directions. (these are great times for video recording)
Spitting. We’re getting a little more extreme here. Don’t be afraid to spit on your male. This can be especially degrading during pegging, even more so during deepthroat training. While he’s making eye contact, just launch a huge wad of spit right in his face. He’ll love you for it! It can also be degrading while you’re criticizing his performance to spit in his face.
Golden showers. We haven’t worked our way up to here yet, and to be honest, I don’t know if I want to. Something we have tried in this area though, making him lick me clean after I take a piss.
Verbal humiliation (Disclaimer: Talk to your partner about this first if you’re worried about crossing a line with him, because this can be emotionally charged.) I really like this, and to me, there are two components. 1. You degrading him with words. 2. Making him degrade himself with words.
1 You degrading him. Name calling. Call him degrading names. This can include the following: Bitch, sissy, cunt, slut, whore, piece of shit, stupid, worthless. Penis humiliation/emasculation. This is common on femdom porn sites. Make fun of the size of his dick, his sexual ability, the things he lets you do to him, etc. Terms like shrimp-dick, bitch boy, butt boy, fuck-hole, cum eater, cum dumpster, cocksucker, limp dick. etc.
Combine insults. Example: “You’re a little limp dick cocksucker.” “You’re a little cum eating bitch, aren’t you?”
Being forceful and insulting with your directions. Example: Instead of saying “get on your knees and suck my dick”, say “Get on your fucking knees and get this dick down your throat you little bitch.” Instead of using his name and telling him to bend over the kitchen table for his pegging, say something like, “Hey shrimp-dick! Get in here, bend over the table and get fucked.” Instead of saying come here and lick my pussy say “get over here and make me cum you little piece of shit”. Tell him what you’re going to do to him later. Send him a text letting him know you’re going to make him eat your pussy and send him away hard and frustrated. Order him to do things for you. *MOST IMPORTANTLY: Don’t be afraid to raise your voice, or even yell. Its encouraged in this situation that you will be very forceful with your voice. Yell in his face if he isn’t licking your pussy correctly. Yell in his face after you cum and tell him to get the fuck off the bed and do the dishes.
  1. Making him degrade himself. This can be really fun.
Make him beg. Use this for anything, make him beg to fuck you, beg you to peg him, beg you to let him masturbate, beg you to let him eat his cum, beg you to spank him, etc. It doesn’t even have to be something he wants. The key to this though, is to make sure his begging meets your standards. If you don’t believe he really wants it, punish him and make him try again, and again until you really believe him.
Make him apologize. Maybe the orgasm he gave you was mediocre. Maybe he didn’t take your dildo up his ass with enough enthusiasm. Maybe when you told him to deepthroat your strapon, he couldn’t get his nose to touch your stomach like you insisted. He should be punished for such infractions, but he should also tell you how sorry he is first. (maybe after his punishment too.) Make sure he apologizes sincerely for any shortcomings. Shit, sometimes I make him apologize for having a small dick (even though he doesn’t).
Make him thank you. Did you let him have an orgasm? Did you fuck his little butthole really well? Did you let him lick your asshole? He needs to thank you for the privlege.
Make him confess. Make him tell you his fantasies. This works especially well if you have him on the edge of orgasm. Make him confess a deep, dark fantasy that he’s never told anyone before. (He’ll probably run out of ideas at some point, you can punish him for that)
Public Play. There are some really fun ways you can take this play out of the house for some really great humiliation that doesn’t involve violating other people boundaries.
Clothes shopping. I enjoy taking him to stores, wal-mart, target, etc. and picking out some really girly panties and outfits for him to wear. If there isn’t anyone around, I’ll occasionally make him go try them on in the dressing room.
Wearing plugs or other toys in public.
And finally, for one of the most humiliating things a man can ever do……
Swallowing cum and/or getting a facial. He fucking hates this, which is why I love it. Any time he has an orgasm during any femdom activity, he’s eating it or its going on his face. I don’t care where it lands, how he came, if it was an accident, or if he really doesn’t want to. That cum is going in his mouth and down his throat. There are a lot of ways to accomplish this, but I really enjoy planning ahead for it. Its also a huge turn on for him, knowing that he’s going to be forced to eat it, even though immediately after he cums he’s absolutely repulsed by it. Some of my favorite ways to do this are:
Make him cum into a condom, then empty it into his mouth.
Make him have a ruined orgasm (I’ll explain later) onto the tile or hardwood floor. Then make him lick it up. If he resists, shove his face in it. If you have carpet, that isn’t a problem. Make him suck the cum out of it until its all gone.
If you let him cum inside you or on you, make him suck the cum out of you or lick it off of you.
While he’s wearing a pair of panties, rub his dick until he cums in them. Then peel them off and make him lick it out, or smear them all over his face.
Flip his legs over his head into the piledriver position (good for pegging also) and make him shoot his load all over his own face. This is a favorite of mine, simply because of the role reversal mind fuck going on in his head. I also like making him leave the jizz on his face for the rest of the day.
Make him cum into a glass and then pour it into his mouth, or pour it all over his face and/or hair.
However he gets the cum into his mouth, occasionally I’ll have him “play” with it. Gargle it, show it to me on his tongue, drool it out and then suck it back up like a porn star.
EDIT: Ladies, he’s going to be much more compliant with eating his semen if he has had a ruined orgasm instead of a pleasurable one. I mention this below but I’ll go into some more detail here. When your man has an orgasm his sexual desire drops off a cliff. He won’t want to eat his cum and will resist. But if you give him a ruined orgasm, he doesn’t get much pleasure at all, and his sexual desire remains high, but he still can expel a good amount of sperm. The goal here is to make his semen come out of his dick without pleasure, but for most men, the pleasure and orgasm actually begins several seconds before he ejaculates. So I like to have fun with this. With him on his knees and his hands restrained I’ll stroke his dick until he gets very close to orgasm, and then when I think hes right on the edge, I’ll let go and watch. I’ll wait about 20 seconds and if no semen comes out, start again. If you’ve done this perfectly, his semen will leak out about 10-15 seconds AFTER you stopped stroking it. He’ll be left sexually frustrated, but you actually DID give him an orgasm, its not your fault he didn’t feel it! He’ll be much more compliant in regards to consuming semen in this way. I like to combine this with chastity sometimes too. I’ll have him locked in the cage for a few days, give him a ruined orgasm and then put him back in. Its wonderful!
ADDED HUMILIATION BONUS!
For added humiliation, I frequently take pictures and video of my pet during these humiliating sessions. I keep these and then use them later for addiitonal humiliaiton. Seriously, having a video of him, with his face covered in his own semen, apologizing for not deepthroating my strapon well enough, all while dressed in daisy dukes and a bikini top….well that’s just good entertainment. Sometimes I make him watch some of the videos with me and laugh at him. It always results in a giant erection in his pants, haha.
PAIN AND CONTROL
DISCLAIMER: It seems online, many people are nervous about this category, and with good reason. Its sometimes hard to tell what your partner is comfortable with, and they may not even be sure of it themselves. So take all of this slowly at first until you and your partner can figure out what works for you. That being said, I seek to push right up against my boyfriend’s limits here. This is where the “forced” part of the humiliation listed above becomes more real.
There are several ways to inflict some pain on your male, here are some of my favorites. Face slapping. I really enjoy this. Nothing gets his attention so quickly as a pop to the side of his cheek. Several (5-6) in quick succession create a look of fear in his face that I love. He can take a lot of punishment here too, just watch out for his eyes and ears. This is an especially good thing to practice while you’re fucking his face or he’s licking your pussy and/or ass. Use your slaps to get his attention, give direction, and have fun. “I slap told slap you slap to slapfocus slap on slap my slap clit!! slap”
Hair Pulling. Grab his hair and yank his head around. Do this while pegging (in any position), while he’s giving you oral (or sucking your dildo), to lead him where you want him, to hold his head in place while you slap him, to force his face into a puddle of semen, etc.
Spanking/whipping. The most common. I like to use a belt, flogger, occasionally a cane.
Cock and Ball Torture. Another common theme on femdom websites. Here’s a list of techniques I use.
Squeezing/Pinching. Grab his balls and squeeze. Pinch the head of his dick.
Slapping. Simple. To make it hurt worse, you can grab his balls into one hand and hold them tight and steady while you slap.
Punching. Same as above but creates a lot more pain. :)
Kicking. Kicking him right in the balls after you just fucked his ass can be quite the experience for both of you. Take this one more slowly haha.
Nipple Play. Most people know about this already. Use clamps, clothespins, pinches, flicks, twists, and scrapes to inflict some pain here. He can take more than you think.
Chemical Play. Ok, we’re getting to some more extreme areas here again. This is not to be taken lightly, as many people’s bodies react differently. Here’s a list of things we’ve tried.
Ice cubes. Rub on his penis, balls, asshole, and nipples. This can sometimes eliminate a pesky erection in a pinch. I’ve inserted cubes into his anus as well, he doesn’t like that lol.
Ben-gay/Icy Hot. Rub this on the penis balls, taint, and anus. This creates a very unpleasant burning sensation. My pet feels very intense pain for about 10-20 minutes. It then subsides to a mild cooling sensation.
Tabasco/hot sauce. Same as above, rub on genitals and asshole. Your man’s experience will vary here depending on the type of sauce you use, the duration you leave it on, and the amount you use. I reserve this for serious punishment. I once poured some hot sauce on the dildo I fucked him with. Let’s just say he didn’t have a great night.
Electricity. You need to be even more careful here. My only experience is a dog shock collar. I attach the collar around his penis and testicles. It has a vibrate function (for when he’s been a good boy) and 8 levels of shocks. We’ve gotten up to level 6. He really hopes I don’t have to use 7 or 8 on him. You can experiment with the position of the collar on his genitals. If the contacts are touching his balls, he’ll feel it throughout his sack and his perineum. If you flip it over and the contacts touch the base of his penis, shocking sensations will affect his entire penis, all the way to the head. We’ve experimented with different levels here, and it seems his penis is much more sensitive to electricity than his balls are. Your man’s experience may vary. This collar also has a sound/beeping function that I use as a pager when I need him. If his balls beep, he has 10 seconds to be on his knees in front of me, regardless of his prior activity, or else he’ll face punishment.
Bondage and Restraints. I keep this simple as I don’t enjoy taking the time to set up intricate bondage situations. I’m sure my BF would like it, but its just too much effort when I can use simpler items to accomplish the same things. I own a few types of gags, a collar and leash, handcuffs, bed restraint system and, my favorite, a spreader bar (bar with cuffs for hands and feet).
Control. A lot of the more severe pain and control items above are essentially just a method to get my guy to do what he’s told. This is where the “forced” aspect really comes into play. For example, he absolutely hates eating sperm. But if I want him to eat sperm, he’s going to fucking eat it. So I use pain to get him to do it. One way I do this is with the electric dog collar and handcuffs. After he cums, and there’s a load of sperm sitting there on the floor, I give him a choice. Either put your face on it and suck up all that lovely sperm, or, get shocked in increasing intervals and strength. Eventually he’ll do it. This is an area where we’ve both agreed that he doesn’t get a choice any longer. He submits to being forced to lick his jizz off the floor.
Another example is dildo play. If i instruct him to deepthroat my strapon, and get the entire 7 inches down his throat while maintaining eye contact, that’s his job to do. If he doesn’t, I inflict pain. For example, I might start by slapping his face as a warning if he’s disobeying, increasing the strength and quantity of the slaps as I try to work the dildo down his throat. If that doesn’t work, I move on to other means. I may whip him with the belt, or punch his balls a few times then give him another chance. I increase the pain until he obeys. Its really fun to give him tasks that are hard to acheive. I also use pain as punsihment for failure. If he can’t make me orgasm in a certain time period, or its less pleasurable than what I expected, I may attach the spreader bar to his ankles and wrists, gag him, slather his cock and balls with ben-gay, and then go have a glass of wine while he contemplates how he can improve his performance next time.
This doesn’t mean I need a reason to hurt my toy. When we’re playing, I may slap him for fun or for no reason at all. If he’s getting pegged, he should expect to get popped in the face a few times just because I fucking feel like it. Maybe I’ll kick his little blue balls afterwards while he’s still on all fours on the kitchen floor, just because I want to be a bitch.
FRUSTRATION/TEASING
This is really quite simple. When we’re playing, I cum when I want, he cums when he’s allowed to. I enjoy making him suffer in this way, its honestly the most fun part of all this. There are a lot of ways I enjoy teasing and frustrating him and I’ll go over some of them now. There is one hard and fast rule in this game for us. He must always ask permission to ejaculate, no exceptions. He’ll be punished severely for an unauthorized orgasm or ejaculation.
Chastity. This is a must for us. While we don’t play 24/7, I enjoy making him wear a chastity device frequently when we’re apart. I work nights, so if I’m at work, chances are he’s locked into “The Vice”. This is a locking chastity cage, similar to others, only this one has an anti-pullout mechanism that makes it very difficult to remove without the key. Basically “The Vice” (available at www.lockedinlust.com ) is a plastic sheath for his dick that attaches to a ring around the base of his balls. It prevents erections and masturbation very well for the price. I don’t want my man’s dick mangled by a piercing for this game we play, and some of the other devices out there require that to be secure. The Vice keeps it secure and out of his (or anyone else’s) hands. Its so empowering to be able to restrict access to his own dick. I have the power to grant him erections and orgasms, he can’t have them without me or my approval. The length of time he wears the device really changes, but is up to me. I usually don’t keep him in it for more than a couple days, but we’ve had times that I left him in there for over 3 weeks. He really wasn’t happy about the time I had to leave town for 4 days and took the key with me, AFTER he’d been locked up for a week already.
There are a log of fun chastity games you can find online. Some fun chastity games we play:
Try to cum. I enjoy leaving the device on him, and tell him to try to have an orgasm with it on (no vibrator allowed!). Its fucking entertaining to see him hump his hand, finger his asshole, shake the cage around, pinch his own nipples, etc. I like to offer some cheering words of encouragement here for him. Usually I have him do this on the floor in the middle of the living room while I sit on the couch and watch. He hasn’t been able to cum yet, but maybe one day he’ll get there. (Another great video opportunity)
Coin flip. If he’s been locked up for several days, I’ll strap him to the bed or handcuff him to remove the device. Then I’ll start stroking his dick until he’s very close to orgasm, right on the edge. Then I flip a coin, heads I finish him off. Tails, I immediately stop, put an ice pack on his dick and lock him back up once he’s soft again. Better luck next time honey.
Roll of the dice. If he rolls a six, he gets to cum. If not, that’s the number of days he stays locked up until he gets another chance. This went on for over 3 weeks for us at one point. He was really on edge lol.
Chastity can also play into the control aspect as well. Sometimes when we play I don’t take the cage off. For example, he doesn’t need an erection to get fucked in his ass or to use my dildo and vibrator on my pussy, so why take it off? If he starts giving me a bad attitude, I’ll simply add another day or two to his lockup time. I use this as punishment for disobedience when playing, so it gives me more control.
One of the big things you’ll notice if you start incorporating chastity into your sex life, is that he will become more and more agreeable and obedient as time goes on, if you restrict his orgasms. If we’re playing with chastity more seriously, I like to make him wait 1 to 2 weeks between orgasms. He has a high sex drive, so when I do this, he gets so horny he’ll do anything to get out of his chastity cage. Its really entertaining to see what I can get him to do. Once, after 13 days locked into the Vice, I insisted he detail my car if he wanted out of the device. He whined and complained, so I told him that he just earned himself another 3 days in the device, and I still expected the car detailed.
The MOST IMPORTANT thing when incorporating chastity into your sex life is this. SAY NO. Don’t be swayed by his begging, whining, or complaining. Firstly lets get this out of the way, no one NEEDS to have an orgasm. He wants to cum, he doesn’t need to. So lets get that little idea out of the way immediately. We have a rule, when he’s locked up, he gets to politely ask for an orgasm once per day. If I feel like it, I’ll have him earnestly beg me. This is great for extracting promises from him. But if I say no, he needs to shut the fuck up about it immediately. Occasionally I’ll say yes, but most of the time I’ll say no as I’ve already decided on how long he’s going to be locked up. Do not feel bad about this. In fact, relish your power here.
I get off on having him go down on me right after I tell him “No, you’re staying locked up.” While we both agreed to incorporate chastity devices into our sex life, the lockup duration is my decision alone. Use the device to modify his behavior to your liking. If you want something from him, sexual or not, give him the order. If he doesn’t comply, add time in the device. The power is intoxicating.
Teasing. Sometimes he wears The Vice around the house, sometimes not. But regardless I like to wear skimpy clothing, rub up against him, feel and squeeze his balls, ass cheeks, and body just to see him get a boner (or try to, hehe). I’ll take this a lot further sometimes, stroking his dick until he starts leaking precum, getting him close to orgasm, only to stop and tell him to calm down. Sometimes I even let him fuck me until I have an orgasm or two, then tell him to stop. This is delightfully frustrating for him. Other times I’ll leave him in the chastity cage and masturbate right in front of him. One of my favorite teases is to use his mouth to make me cum and send him away completely denied. Sometimes I tell him I’m going to make him cum, only to stop at the last second and tell him I changed my mind.
Ruined Orgasm. By far the funniest aspect to this whole femdom thing. Its really an artform. The basic idea is that you get your man very, very close to the point of orgasm and then stop all stimulation. If you do it right, he’ll just tip over the edge, and his semen will dribble out of his dick with barely any force, and next to no pleasure. This works best with his hands restrained so he can’t try to finish the job himself. I like to pair this sometimes with the shock collar to make it completely miserable.
SERVICE
So now we get to the fun part. A lot of the above is playing into my man’s fetish, and that’s ok. I do love him, and I don’t have a problem doing stuff for his enjoyment. But you can be sure I’m going to be getting something out of all this! A big part of femdom is serving the woman in the relationship. And I’ll detail how that all works for us now.
Sexual Service. This encompasses everything. If I want my ass eaten out for 2 hours while I watch TV, he does it. If I want a full body massage from a muscled, naked man, that’s what I get. If I want to fuck and get off two or three times, I get that. If I want my nipples sucked while I use my vibrator on myself, that’s what I get. Nothing is off limits to me sexually. I speak, he obeys. That’s just how it goes. I typically don’t orgasm from oral sex alone or penetrative sex alone, and sometimes it can take quite a while for me to get there. The point is, I get what I want. Not that I want him eating my ass for 2 hours necessarily, but I’ll make him do something like that sometimes just because I can. (Then sometimes make fun of him for it.)
Facesitting. I love sitting on his face. Its a great experience to cum all over his face. Sometimes I use just his tongue, while other times I’ll shove a dildo in his mouth and ride it while using my vibrator. I also have a gag that has a dildo sticking out of it. Whatever I’m using, its important that I’m only concerned with my own pleasure during this experience. Don’t worry about whether or not he’s able to breathe, if his tongue is tired, if his neck hurts, etc. In fact, its quite enjoyable to put him in intentionally uncomfortable positions for this. We have a hard wooden chair that I like to use for this. He’ll be required to sit on the floor and lean his head back onto the seat of the chair. This hurts his neck and head when I really start riding and bouncing on it, but who gives a fuck? He needs to focus on my orgasm, not his temporary discomfort.
As part of the sexual service aspect of femdom in our sex life, we’ve decided that he no longer decides when and where he gets to orgasm, when and where I get to orgasm, and he doesn’t decide on when or where any other sexual activity takes place. That’s up to me now. This doesn’t mean that he doesn’t initiate sex any longer, far from it. But it does mean he doesn’t get to complain, and he doesn’t get to turn me down when I want it either.
The goal of sexual service is two-fold. One, for you to get all the pleasure you want. Two, for him to feel completely objectified. When you are using him sexually, think of him as just another sex toy, a dildo that you can use up and throw away when you are finished.
But this isn’t limited to sexual service only.
Domestic Service. Basics. When we’re in femdom mode, he does the chores. All of them. We get to spice up mundane things like cleaning the bathroom and vacuuming in easy ways. For example, if the dishes need washed, and the kitchen mopped, I tell my bitch to get his maid outfit and shock collar on and bring me the large butt plug. While he gets dressed I may watch TV, text friends, do some shopping online, or anything else I want. When he’s ready, he lubes up the plug and I put it up his tight little ass. He then goes off to do whatever I’ve told him to do while I relax. After he’s done I may or may not inspect his work, if he did a good job then he may get a reward. His reward may be the privilege of kissing my asshole for example. If its not up to par he may get punished. This can be implemented immediately, or added to a play session later. If you are going to go this route though, I would suggest using punishments he really wants to avoid (extended chastity time, severe spankings, etc.) or else you may find him purposefully messing up in order to get some “punishment” he wants.
This applies to any chore we need completed. My laundry, dishes, car washes, lawn mowing (its funny seeing him on a riding mower when I know there’s a plug up his ass), cooking, etc.
Personal Service. These are generally intimate things that I want done for me. They can really play up the tease element as well. Some examples:
Shave me. In the shower or bath, I like to have him shave my legs and pussy.
Toenails/pedicure. I pick the color, then he massages, moisturizes my feet. Then polishes my nails for me. He’s also responsible for removing any old polish from my nails.
Massage. Sometimes just a shoulder rub, other times I’ll be nude and he is required to give me a full body massage with oil. I like for him to be nude for this as well. It’s really torture for him to give me a few orgasms afterwards and stay denied.
Body worship. It can be really relaxing to have him kiss and nuzzle my thighs, feet nipples, and pussy. I especially enjoy having my asshole worshiped though. Just light kisses, licks and nuzzles. Basically he’s making out with my asshole. It’s a serious power trip to have him do this while I watch TV or play games on my phone, ignoring him except to give instructions if I want something done differently.
PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER
I’ve outlined several ideas and topics here, and now I’ll give an example on how I’ve put all of it together. Remember when reading this, its all in fun, and it doesn’t necessarily have to make a lot of sense. Remember, if your guy is into femdom, he likes a lot of this kind of stuff already.
I like to choose something from each category when we play, just to round out the session. Not always, but frequently.
For one session I decided we were going to do some pegging, so before I got home I told him to get himself cleaned up, naked, and get a plug in. I got home about an hour later, so he’d been stretched out for a little while. I got home, grabbed him by the hair and dragged him into the garage. I told him to get on all fours in the middle of the floor and wait. He waited there for 20 minutes. I know he was scared, he’d never been fucked on the garage floor before. It wasn’t clean, and he was completely naked except for the plug in his ass.
I came in turned all the lights on and started taking pictures. I was already wearing the strapon. I made him smile for the camera, and pose for me. It looked like a really trashy photoshoot. I took several pictures in varioius positions and then I told him it was time to get busy.
I lubed up my cock, slowly pulled out the plug and got to work. I fucked him on the floor of the garage for about 5 minutes, eventually really pounding him. I pulled him up by his hair, bent him over the hood of my car and pounded some more. I insisted he fake an orgasm like a girl. It was reallly funny listening him attempt to moan and scream like a woman orgasming.
Once he was done, I pulled him around by the hair and spit directly into his face. I told him that was the worst fuck I’d ever had and told him to “go clean my fucking bathroom”. He stared at me dumbfounded, so I slapped him hard in his face and repeated it louder. He quickly scurried off to the master bath. About 5 minutes later I came in and threw the strapon and butt plug on the floor and told him to clean up my toys as well. When he came and reported that he was done, I went to inspect his work. It was spotless.
So I told him to get himself cleaned up and ready for bed. As a reward I let him go down on me for a while and then use my vibrator to give me an orgasm. He didn’t get to cum that night. (but we did cuddle and watch a movie)
There are many more ways you can mix and match categories, and many of them run together. For example, you can facefuck your man with your strapon, while you rub his dick. Once you’re satisfied he’s learned how to deepthroat, pull him off and make him beg for the privilege of masturbating in your presence. You can record this on video if you like, then, make him eat his own cum on video. The possibilities are endless! Again, I know a lot of this isn’t “authentic” if you’re doing it for your submissive partner, but that doesn’t really matter to me. What matters is that we’re having fun, and I get what I need out of it too. Dm if you need my training sessions.

2020.09.21 04:59 hypointellectual LVM and OLD: How to spot them so you don’t waste your time [Sleuthing Edition]

For all you brave queens who are online dating in the middle of a motherf*ckin pandemic because y’all are a bunch of crazy psychos, I want to arm you with an ironclad checklist for spotting a LVM via social media. This shit might be obvious to you, but let’s make a checklist so y’all have tools to use when you’re dating. This is meant to be an objective way to weed out scrotes without bringing in all your feelings and excuses.
The best way to vet a male is via social media because you don’t have to waste your time going on a date or even really conversing with this potential LVM. Just cut him out and move on to finding a HVM.
Hope the scrotes don’t see this shit. If they do, it’s hard to clean up their messy act anyway.
In this edition, I’m going to be focusing on 2 main things: Instagram and LinkedIn. Should be easy enough to find most scrotes via social media because they don’t live in fear of being stalked and murdered like men like we women/LGBTQ folks do.
Source: I’ve dated so many losers in my time that someone should benefit from my terrible experiences. I’m also friends with LVM (great friends but they are honestly so gross when it comes to dating). It’s good being friends with some of them that offer something to you bc you get to see the male mind at work. I know which flags to avoid without having to experience them!!!
INSTAGRAM
1. Check who they are following and who their followers are.
LVM will have a combination of the following: * Following scantily clad women - Men who follow Kylie Jenner are usually scrotes. I have nothing against her but a 30 year old man following her? Ummm red flag. * More than 30% of their following list are women. LVM ask women to switch to social media and add all their conquests to keep in touch in case they need a wet hole. Trust me, every single one of my LVM friends do this shit. * Check a few of the women’s profiles. We can all smell pickmeishas from miles away. I was literally able to find a LVW he was dating who tweets every single thought about her life. One of her tweets was about him. Y I K E S. * The girls he follows are from around the world and all sorts of locations he’s visited. It’s cuz he used tindebumble/etc. to find easy free sex.
2. Using babies/dogs/mom/grandma/hot girls as props.
His profile picture is with his mom. Aww. Chances are he doesn’t even buy her a Christmas gift. He also has a pic with a baby! Ask him if he actually babysits or has ever changed a diaper. Wow he’s with a bunch of hot girls! Are they way out of his league? If so, they’re props and he objectifies women.
3. Overly branding themselves.
Unless he owns a photography business, ask yourself why he’s so keep on making sure there’s a consistent theme to his posts. Or why there are so many professional pictures of him shirtless. Guys who do this for no real reason except to show they’re cool are usually scrotes trying to look attractive to women.
4. Read the captions and comments on his pictures.
Lots of women commenting? Is he acting like a douchebag in his description/comments?
LINKEDIN
1. More than 5 years of work experience and are not in leadership positions.
I understand this might vary by industry, but by five years you should be a manager or some sort of lead. Does his work experience make sense for his position?
2. Bad LinkedIn Page
No job descriptions, grammatical errors, etc. if you’re in his industry, VET HIM!!!!! His LinkedIn page should look pretty good, even if he’s not looking for a job. A nonprofessional picture on LinkedIn is usually a bad sign if he works in an office environment.
3. Work in certain jobs like sales, recruiting, sports etc.
These men meet women all the time. I’ve dated guys in these roles. 9 times out of 10, they’re bad at their jobs or barely meet quota. If they were good at their jobs, their linkedin page would show it. Good sales/recruiters are trying to stay on top of their A game and do not waste time on asinine bullshit.
TLDR; Social media is a great way to vet someone without actually spending much time. The reason why is because social media allows people to curate a profile of themselves. This profile shows how they perceive themselves and how they want the world to perceive them. You get an glimpse of their mind.
Share your checklist below and I’ll try to add it to the original post.
More checklist items based on comments: 1. Check if he uses Reddit and find out if he has an account. Sleuth what he posts and which subreddits he follows.

2020.09.21 04:18 ThrowRAwifeparty My (M28) wife (F31) made a drunken public scene trying to show people her tits. I'm mortified.

Tonight our friends had a end of Summer cookout party where some people ended up inviting more people. Soon there were maybe 30 people, this was at a state campground site. There was a bonfire, food and lots of alcohol. I do not know how much exactly my wife drank. I just eventually realized I'd seen her with at least a few different drinks, and at this point she was starting to be clearly intoxicated. Slurring, stumbling, very giggly and embarrassing.
I spoke to her privately that she should hold off on any more drinking for a bit. She thought I just needed to lighten up and have fun. She began to try to come on to me, trying to rub my crotch and lifting her shirt up. If we were alone at home this would be fine! But obviously not in public! so I'm in a panic to make sure she stops before someone looks over.
When I pushed her hands away she got pissy. She ignored me saying how we're in public. She was wearing a tank top and pulled it down so that her boobs were popping out almost out of her bra. Before I knew it she went back toward everyone else, saying, "Look what my husband just passed up!!" I ran the fuck after her but it was too late she was running in between people through the crowd yelling "TITTIES! Free titty show! Tits anyone???" then "tits on a platter, fresh hot titties!" as she grabbed an empty aluminum tray from the burgers. She poured some guy's beer over her chest and yelled "wet Tshirt contest!" while shaking her tits in his face. I also remember her asking a mutual friend if he wanted a tittyfuck!
Okay you get the picture...I HAVE NEVER BEEN SO EMBARRASSED IN MY ENTIRE LIFE. Beyond embarrassing, mortifying as I said in the title. There were men openly gawking and whistling. Tons of people laughing. I saw some phones out, for all I know we're a viral laughingstock on the internet now. Everyone was staring as I literally chased my drunken wife around the campground with her boobs flopping everywhere until she tripped and fell.
That, of course, was the end of the night for us. I brought her home immediately.
The next thing I did was text all our friends who were there apologizing sincerely for her behavior. They all seemed to take it in stride luckily. Sad thing is, they did not seem entirely shocked. It's not THAT out of the ordinary for her, though she hasn't had an incident like this in a couple years. I just thought she had normal self control now. Not to mention responsible drinking habits.
This would be one thing for someone 10 years younger, but a married woman past 30 and still acting like this? The more I think about it, I'm worried I'll be totally ashamed to be around her in public now. I'll constantly have the worry in the back of my mind that she could be just a couple drinks away from becoming an x-rated circus clown.
Right now she's passed out in bed but I want to talk to her tomorrow. I sure hope she remembers what happened, she could have been blacked out, I don't know. The thing is she can be pretty sensitive to personal criticism. I want to cool off a bit first (so it's actually good I can't talk to her right now). On top of staying calm what else can I do to talk about this without making her get defensive?
I also don't understand why it happened when she'd been doing fine with social events and drinking. How can I tell if this is the beginning of a relapse, or just an accident?
tl;dr: Went to a social gathering where my wife got wasted, then ended up running around with her shirt nearly off screaming about her boobs, in front of our friends and a bunch of people we don't know.

2020.09.21 02:47 Leather_Term Meet Brock Pierce, the Presidential Candidate With Ties to Pedophiles Who Wants to End Human Trafficking

thedailybeast.com Sep. 20, 2020.
The “Mighty Ducks” actor is running for president. He clears the air (sort of) to Tarpley Hitt about his ties to Jeffrey Epstein and more.
In the trailer for First Kid, the forgettable 1996 comedy about a Secret Service agent assigned to protect the president’s son, the title character, played by a teenage Brock Pierce, describes himself as “definitely the most powerful kid in the universe.” Now, the former child star is running to be the most powerful man in the world, as an Independent candidate for President of the United States.
Before First Kid, the Minnesota-born actor secured roles in a series of PG-rated comedies, playing a young Emilio Estevez in The Mighty Ducks, before graduating to smaller parts in movies like Problem Child 3: Junior in Love. When his screen time shrunk, Pierce retired from acting for a real executive role: co-founding the video production start-up Digital Entertainment Network (DEN) alongside businessman Marc Collins-Rector. At age 17, Pierce served as its vice president, taking in a base salary of $250,000.
DEN became “the poster child for dot-com excesses,” raising more than $60 million in seed investments and plotting a $75 million IPO. But it turned into a shorthand for something else when, in October of 1999, the three co-founders suddenly resigned. That month, a New Jersey man filed a lawsuit alleging Collins-Rector had molested him for three years beginning when he was 13 years old. The following summer, three teens filed a sexual-abuse lawsuit against Pierce, Collins-Rector, and their third co-founder, Chad Shackley. The plaintiffs later dropped their case against Pierce (he made a payment of $21,600 to one of their lawyers) and Shackley. But after a federal grand jury indicted Collins-Rector on criminal charges in 2000, the DEN founders left the country. When Interpol arrested them in 2002, they said they had confiscated “guns, machetes, and child pornography” from the trio’s beach villa in Spain.
While abroad, Pierce had pivoted to a new venture: Internet Gaming Entertainment, which sold virtual accessories in multiplayer online role-playing games to those desperate to pay, as one Wired reporter put it, “as much as $1,800 for an eight-piece suit of Skyshatter chain mail” rather than earn it in the games themselves. In 2005, a 25-year-old Pierce hired then-Goldman Sachs banker Steve Bannon—just before he would co-found Breitbart News. Two years later, after a World of Warcraft player sued the company for “diminishing” the fun of the game, Steve Bannon replaced Pierce as CEO.
Collins-Rector eventually pleaded guilty to eight charges of child enticement and registered as a sex offender. In the years that followed, Pierce waded into the gonzo economy of cryptocurrencies, where he overlapped more than once with Jeffrey Epstein, and counseled him on crypto. In that world, he founded Tether, a cryptocurrency that bills itself as a “stablecoin,” because its value is allegedly tied to the U.S. dollar, and the blockchain software company Block.one. Like his earlier businesses, Pierce’s crypto projects see-sawed between massive investments and curious deals. When Block.one announced a smart contract software called EOS.IO, the company raised $4 billion almost overnight, setting an all-time record before the product even launched. The Securities and Exchange Commission later fined the company $24 million for violating federal securities law. After John Oliver mocked the ordeal, calling Pierce a “sleepy, creepy cowboy,” Block.one fired him. Tether, meanwhile, is currently under investigation by the New York Attorney General for possible fraud.
On July 4, Pierce announced his candidacy for president. His campaign surrogates include a former Cambridge Analytica director and the singer Akon, who recently doubled down on developing an anonymously funded, $6 billion “Wakanda-like” metropolis in Senegal called Akon City. Pierce claims to be bipartisan, and from the 11 paragraphs on the “Policy” section of his website it can be hard to determine where he falls on the political spectrum. He supports legalizing marijuana and abolishing private prisons, but avoids the phrase “climate change.” He wants to end “human trafficking.” His proposal to end police brutality: body cams.
His political contributions tell a more one-sided story. Pierce’s sole Democratic contribution went to the short-lived congressional run of crypto candidate Brian Forde. The rest went to Republican campaigns like Marco Rubio, Rick Perry, John McCain, and the National Right to Life Political Action Committee. Last year alone, Pierce gave over $44,000 to the Republican National Committee and more than $55,000 to Trump’s re-election fund.
Pierce spoke to The Daily Beast from his tour bus and again over email. Those conversations have been combined and edited for clarity.
You’re announcing your presidential candidacy somewhat late, and historically, third-party candidates haven’t had the best luck with the executive office. If you don’t have a strong path to the White House, what do you want out of the race?
I announced on July 4, which I think is quite an auspicious date for an Independent candidate, hoping to bring independence to this country. There’s a lot of things that I can do. One is: I’m 39 years old. I turn 40 in November. So I’ve got time on my side. Whatever happens in this election cycle, I’m laying the groundwork for the future. The overall mission is to create a third major party—not another third party—a third major party in this country. I think that is what America needs most. George Washington in his closing address warned us about the threat of political parties. John Adams and the other founding fathers—their fear for our future was two political parties becoming dominant. And look at where we are. We were warned.
I believe, having studied systems, any time you have a system of two, what happens is those two things come together, like magnets. They come into collision, or they become polarized and become completely divided. I think we need to rise above partisan politics and find a path forward together. As Albert Einstein is quoted—I’m not sure the line came from him, but he’s quoted in many places—he said that the definition of insanity is making the same mistake or doing the same thing over and over and over again, expecting a different result. [Ed. note: Einstein never said this.] It feels like that’s what our election cycle is like. Half the country feels like they won, half the country feels like they lost, at least if they voted or participated.
Obviously, there’s another late-comer to the presidential race, and that’s Kanye West. He’s received a lot of flak for his candidacy, as he’s openly admitted to trying to siphon votes away from Joe Biden to ensure a Trump victory. Is that something you’re hoping to avoid or is that what you’re going for as well?
Oh no. This is a very serious campaign. Our campaign is very serious. You’ll notice I don’t say anything negative about either of the two major political candidates, because I think that’s one of the problems with our political system, instead of people getting on stage, talking about their visionary ideas, inspiring people, informing and educating, talking about problems, mentioning problems, talking about solutions, constructive criticism. That’s why I refuse to run a negative campaign. I am definitely not a spoiler. I’m into data, right? I’m a technologist. I’ve got digital DNA. So does most of our campaign team. We’ve got our finger on the pulse.
Most of my major Democratic contacts are really happy to see that we’re running in a red state like Wyoming. Kanye West’s home state is Wyoming. He’s not on the ballot in Wyoming I could say, in part, because he didn’t have Akon on his team. But I could also say that he probably didn’t want to be on the ballot in Wyoming because it’s a red state. He doesn’t want to take additional points in a state where he’s only running against Trump. But we’re on the ballot in Wyoming, and since we’re on the ballot in Wyoming I think it’s safe—more than safe, I think it’s evident—that we are not here to run as a spoiler for the benefit of Donald Trump.
In running for president, you’ve opened yourself up to be scrutinized from every angle going back to the beginning of your career. I wanted to ask you about your time at the Digital Entertainment Network. Can you tell me a little bit about how you started there? You became a vice president as a teenager. What were your qualifications and what was your job exactly?
Well, I was the co-founder. A lot of it was my idea. I had an idea that people would use the internet to watch videos, and we create content for the internet. The idea was basically YouTube and Hulu and Netflix. Anyone that was around in the ‘90s and has been around digital media since then, they all credit us as the creators of basically those ideas. I was just getting a message from the creator of The Vandals, the punk rock band, right before you called. He’s like, “Brock, looks like we’re going to get the Guinness Book of World Records for having created the first streaming television show.”
We did a lot of that stuff. We had 30 television shows. We had the top most prestigious institutions in the world as investors. The biggest names. High-net-worth investors like Terry Semel, who’s chairman and CEO of Warner Brothers, and became the CEO of Yahoo. I did all sorts of things. I helped sell $150,000 worth of advertising contracts to the CEOs of Pepsi and everything else. I was the face of the company, meeting all the major banks and everything else, selling the vision of what the future was.
You moved in with Marc Collins-Rector and Chad Shackley at a mansion in Encino. Was that the headquarters of the business?
All start-ups, they normally start out in your home. Because it’s just you. The company was first started out of Marc’s house, and it was probably there for the first two or three months, before the company got an office. That’s, like, how it is for all start-ups.
were later a co-defendant in the L.A. County case filed against Marc Collins-Rector for plying minors with alcohol and drugs, in order to facilitate sexual abuse. You were dropped from the case, but you settled with one of the men for $21,600. Can you explain that?
Okay, well, first of all, that’s not accurate. Two of the plaintiffs in that case asked me if I would be a plaintiff. Because I refused to be a part of the lawsuit, they chose to include me to discredit me, to make their case stronger. They also went and offered 50 percent of what they got to the house management—they went around and offered money to anyone to participate in this. They needed people to corroborate their story. Eventually, because I refused to participate in the lawsuit, they named me. Subsequently, all three of the plaintiffs apologized to me, in front of audiences, in front of many people, saying Brock never did anything. They dismissed their cases.
Remember, this is a civil thing. I’ve never been charged with a crime in my life. And the last plaintiff to have his case dismissed, he contacted his lawyer and said, “Dismiss this case against Brock. Brock never did anything. I just apologized. Dismiss his case.” And the lawyer said, “No. I won’t dismiss this case, I have all these out-of-pocket expenses, I refuse to file the paperwork unless you give me my out-of-pocket expenses.” And so the lawyer, I guess, had $21,000 in bills. So I paid his lawyer $21,000—not him, it was not a settlement. That was a payment to his lawyer for his out-of-pocket expenses. Out-of-pocket expenses so that he would file the paperwork to dismiss the case.
You’ve said the cases were unfounded, and the plaintiffs eventually apologized. But your boss, Marc Collins-Rector later pleaded guilty to eight charges of child enticement and registered as a sex offender. Were you aware of his behavior? How do you square the fact that later allegations proved to be true, but these ones were not?
Well, remember: I was 16 and 17 years old at the time? So, no. I don’t think Marc is the man they made him out to be. But Marc is not a person I would associate with today, and someone I haven’t associated with in a very long time. I was 16 and 17. I chose the wrong business partner. You live and you learn.
You’ve pointed out that you were underage when most of these allegations were said to take place. Did you ever feel like you were coerced or in over your head while working at DEN?
I mean, I was working 18 hours a day, doing things I’d never done before. It was business school. But I definitely learned a lot in building that company. We raised $88 million. We filed our [form] S-1 to go public. We were the hottest start-up in Los Angeles.
In 2000, you left the country with Marc Collins-Rector. Why did you leave? How did you spend those two years abroad?
I moved to Spain in 1999 for personal reasons. I spent those two years in Europe working on developing my businesses.
Interpol found you in 2002. The house where you were staying reportedly contained guns, machetes, and child pornography. Whose guns and child porn were those? Were you aware they were in the house, and how did those get there?
My lawyers have addressed this in 32 pages of documentation showing a complete absence of wrongdoing. Please refer to my webpage for more information.
[Ed. Note: The webpage does not mention guns, machetes, or child pornography. It does state:“It is true that when the local police arrested Collins-Rector in Spain in 2002 on an international warrant, Mr. Pierce was also taken into custody, but so was everyone at Collins-Rector’s house in Spain; and it is equally clear that Brock was promptly released, and no charges of any kind were ever filed against Brock concerning this matter.”]
What do you make of the allegations against Bryan Singer? [Ed. Note: Bryan Singer, a close friend of Collins-Rector, invested at least $50,000 in DEN. In an Atlantic article outlining Singer’s history of alleged sexual assault and statutory rape, one source claimed that at age 15, Collins-Rector abused him and introduced him to Singer, who then assaulted him in the DEN headquarters.]
I am aware of them and I support of all victims of sexual assault. I will let America’s justice system decide on Singer’s outcome.
In 2011, you spoke at the Mindshift conference supported by Jeffrey Epstein. At that point, he had already been convicted of soliciting prostitution from a minor. Why did you agree to speak?
I had never heard of Jeffrey Epstein. His name was not on the website. I was asked to speak at a conference alongside Nobel Prize winners. It was not a cryptocurrency conference, it was filled with Nobel Prize winners. I was asked to speak alongside Nobel Prize winners on the future of money. I speak at conferences historically, two to three times a week. I was like, “Nobel Prize winners? Sounds great. I’ll happily talk about the future of money with them.” I had no idea who Jeffrey Epstein was. His name was not listed anywhere on the website. Had I known what I know now? I clearly would have never spoken there. But I spoke at a conference that he cosponsored.
What’s your connection to the Clinton Global Initiative? Did you hear about it through Jeffrey Epstein?
I joined the Clinton Global Initiative as a philanthropist in 2006 and was a member for one year. My involvement with the Initiative had no connection to Jeffrey Epstein whatsoever.
You’ve launched your campaign in Minnesota, where George Floyd was killed by a police officer. How do you feel about the civil uprising against police brutality?
I’m from Minnesota. Born and raised. We just had a press conference there, announcing that we’re on the ballot. Former U.S. Senator Dean Barkley was there. So that tells you, when former U.S. Senators are endorsing the candidate, right?
[Ed. note: Barkley was never elected to the United States Senate. In November of 2002, he was appointed by then Minnesota Governor Jesse Venture to fill the seat after Sen. Paul Wellstone died in a plane crash. Barkley’s term ended on Jan. 3, 2003—two months later.]
Yes, George Floyd was murdered in Minneapolis. My vice-presidential running mate Karla Ballard and I, on our last trip to Minnesota together, went to visit the George Floyd Memorial. I believe in law and order. I believe that law and order is foundational to any functioning society. But there is no doubt in my mind that we need reform. These types of events—this is not an isolated incident. This has happened many times before. It’s time for change. We have a lot of detail around policy on this issue that we will be publishing next week. Not just high-level what we think, not just a summary, but detailed policy.
You said that you support “law and order.” What does that mean?
“Law and order” means creating a fair and just legal system where our number one priority is protecting the inalienable rights of “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” for all people. This means reforming how our police intervene in emergency situations, abolishing private prisons that incentivize mass incarceration, and creating new educational and economic opportunities for our most vulnerable communities. I am dedicated to preventing crime by eliminating the socioeconomic conditions that encourage it.
I support accountability and transparency in government and law enforcement. Some of the key policies I support are requiring body-cams on all law enforcement officers who engage with the public, curtailing the 1033 program that provides local law enforcement agencies with access to military equipment, and abolishing private prisons. Rather than simply defund the police, my administration will take a holistic approach to heal and unite America by ending mass incarceration, police brutality, and racial injustice.
Did you attend any Black Lives Matter protests?
I support all movements aimed at ending racial injustice and inequality. I​ have not attended any Black Lives Matter protests.​ My running-mate, Karla Ballard, attended the March on Washington in support of racial justice and equality.
Your platform doesn’t mention the words “climate change.” Is there a reason for that?
I’m not sure what you mean. Our policy platform specifically references human-caused climate change and we have a plan to restabilize the climate, address environmental degradation, and ensure environmental sustainability.
[Ed. Note: As of writing the Pierce campaign’s policy platform does not specifically reference human-caused climate change.]
You’ve recently brought on Akon as a campaign surrogate. How did that happen? Tell me about that.
Akon and I have been friends for quite some time. I was one of the guys that taught him about Bitcoin. I helped make some videogames for him, I think in 2012. We were talking about Bitcoin, teaching him the ropes, back in 2013. And in 2014, we were both speaking at the Milken Global Conference, and I encouraged him to talk about how Bitcoin, Africa, changed the world. He became the biggest celebrity in the world, talking about Bitcoin at the time. I’m an adviser to his Akoin project, very interested in the work that he’s doing to build a city in Africa.
I think we need a government that’s of, for, and by the people. Akon has huge political aspirations. He obviously was a hugely successful artist. But he also discovered artists like Lady Gaga. So not only is he, himself, a great artist, but he’s also a great identifier and builder of other artists. And he’s been a great businessman, philanthropist. He’s pushing the limits of what can be done. We’re like-minded individuals in that regard. I think he’ll be running for political office one day, because he sees what I see: that we need real change, and we need a government that is of, for, and by the people.
You mentioned that you’re an adviser on Akoin. Do you have any financial investments in Akoin or Akon City?
I don’t believe so. I’d have to check. I have so much stuff. But I don’t believe that I have any economic interests in his stuff. I’d have to verify that. We’ll get back to you. I don’t believe that I have any economic interests. My interest is in helping him. He’s a visionary with big ideas that wants to help things in the world. If I can be of assistance in helping him make the world a better place, I’m all for it. I’m not motivated by money. I’m not running for office because I’m motivated by power. I’m running for office because I’m deeply, deeply concerned about our collective future.
You’ve said you’re running on a pro-technology platform. One week into your campaign last month, a New York appeals court approved the state Attorney General’s attempt to investigate the stablecoin Tether for potentially fraudulent activity. Do you think this will impact your ability to sell people on your tech entrepreneurship?
No, I think my role in Tether is as awesome as it gets. It was my idea. I put it together. But I’ve had no involvement in the company since 2015. I gave all of my equity to the other shareholders. I’ve had zero involvement in the company for almost six years. It was just my idea. I put the initial team together. But I think Tether is one of the most important innovations in the world, certainly. The idea is, I digitized the U.S. dollar. I used technology to digitize currency—existing currency. The U.S. dollar in particular. It’s doing $10 trillion a year. Ten trillion dollars a year of transactional volume. It’s probably the most important innovation in currency since the advent of fiat money. The people that took on the business and ran the business in years to come, they’ve done things I’m not proud of. I’m not sure they’ve done anything criminal. But they certainly did things differently than I would do. But it’s like, you have kids, they turn 18, they go out into the world, and sometimes you’re proud of the things they do, and sometimes you shake your head and go, “Ugh, why did you do that?” I have zero concerns as it relates to me personally. I wish they made better decisions.
What do you think the investigation will find?
I have no idea. The problem that was raised is that there was a $5 million loan between two entities and whether or not they had the right to do that, did they disclose it correctly. There’s been no accusations of, like, embezzlement or anything that bad.
[Ed. Note: The Attorney General’s press release on the investigation reads: “Our investigation has determined that the operators of the ‘Bitfinex’ trading platform, who also control the ‘tether’ virtual currency, have engaged in a cover-up to hide the apparent loss of $850 million dollars of co-mingled client and corporate funds.”]
But there’s been some disclosure things, that is the issue. No one is making any outrageous claims that these are people that have done a bunch of bad—well, on the internet, the media has said that the people behind the business may have been manipulating the price of Bitcoin, but I don’t think that has anything to do with the New York investigation. Again, I’m so not involved, and so not at risk, that I’m not even up to speed on the details.
[Ed note: A representative of the New York State Attorney General told Forbes that he “cannot confirm or deny that the investigation” includes Pierce.]
We’ve recently witnessed the rise of QAnon, the conspiracy theory that Hollywood is an evil cabal of Satanic pedophiles and Trump is the person waging war on them. You mentioned human trafficking, which has become a cause for them. What are your thoughts on that?
I’ve watched some of the content. I think it’s an interesting phenomenon. I’m an internet person, so Anonymous is obviously an organization that has been doing interesting stuff. It’s interesting. I don’t have a big—conspiracy theory stuff is—I guess I have a question for you: What do you think of all of it, since you’re the expert?
You know, I think it’s not true, but I’m not running for president. I do wonder what this politician [Georgia congressional candidate Marjorie Taylor Greene], who’s just won her primary, is going to do on day one, once she finds out there’s no satanic cabal room.
Wait, someone was running for office and won on a QAnon platform, saying that Hollywood did—say what? You’re the expert here.
She won a primary. But I want to push on if we only have a few minutes. In 2006, your gaming company IGE brought on Steve Bannon as an investor. Goldman later bought out most of your stock. Bannon eventually replaced you as CEO of Affinity. You’ve described him as your “right-hand man for, like, seven years.” How well did you know Bannon during that time?
Yes, so this is in my mid-twenties. He wasn’t an investor. He worked for me. He was my banker. He worked for me for three years as my yield guide. And then he was my CEO running the company for another four years. So I haven’t worked with Steve for a decade or so. We worked in videogame stuff and banking. He was at Goldman Sachs. He was not in the political area at the time. But he was a pretty successful banker. He set up Goldman Sachs Los Angeles. So for me, I’d say he did a pretty good job.
During your business relationship, Steve Bannon founded Breitbart News, which has pretty consistently published racist material. How do you feel about Breitbart?
I had no involvement with Breitbart News. As for how I feel about such material, I’m not pleased by any form of hate-mongering. I strongly support the equality of all Americans.
Did you have qualms about Bannon’s role in the 2016 election?
Bannon’s role in the Trump campaign got me to pay closer attention to what he was doing but that’s about it. Whenever you find out that one of your former employees has taken on a role like that, you pay attention.
Bannon served on the board of Cambridge Analytica. A staffer on your campaign, Brittany Kaiser, also served as a business director for them. What are your thoughts on their use of illicitly-obtained Facebook data for campaign promotional material?
Yes, so this will be the last question I can answer because I’ve got to be off for this 5:00 pm. But Brittany Kaiser is a friend of mine. She was the whistleblower of Cambridge Analytica. She came to me and said, “What do I do?” And I said, “Tell the truth. The truth will set you free.”
[Ed. Note: Investigations in Cambridge Analytica took place as early as Nov. 2017, when a U.K. reporter at Channel 4 News recorded their CEO boasting about using “beautiful Ukranian girls” and offers of bribes to discredit political officials. The first whistleblower was Christopher Wylie, who disclosed a cache of documents to The Guardian, published on Mar. 17, 2018. Kaiser’s confession ran five days later, after the scandal made national news. Her association with Cambridge Analytica is not mentioned anywhere on Pierce’s campaign website.]
So I’m glad that people—I’m a supporter of whistleblowers, people that see injustice in the world and something not right happening, and who put themselves in harm’s way to stand up for what they believe in. So I stand up for Brittany Kaiser.
Who do you think [anonymous inventor of Bitcoin] Satoshi Nakamoto is?
We all are Satoshi Nakamoto.
You got married at Burning Man. Have you been attending virtual Burning Man?
I’m running a presidential campaign. So, while I was there in spirit, unfortunately my schedule did not permit me to attend.

2020.09.21 00:39 BlancheFromage Another example of SGI praising the superiority of Ikeda worshipers

From Dec. 18, 1977 Source:
Author Note: The following are verbatim notes as I took them down in a Toban meeting with General Director Williams and are not embellished. I will break the long post into two parts. The following will cover page 1-5, the second from pg. 16-29. My notes include phrases which Williams would use which were not always phrased in proper English. However, I think they provide an accurate historical and linguistic eyewitness insider account of what actually transpired during the 17 year old movement. This is probably one of the longest entries I had written up to this point in my journal. It also paints a picture of the early relationship of George M. Williams with the young Ikeda who was serving under President Toda. I will include explanatory notes in brackets integrated into the post rather than at the end because of the length of the post. All mistakes are not Williams, but sometimes my notetaking was as not quite as quick as a particular series of exhortations when he rattled off many terms. But you do get the general flow.
Begin entry. Williams begins:
“Wow. Good morning. How are you?”
“Fine.”
As you heard about this President Ikeda’s H.R. [The Human Revolution] Volume X, it covers a tendency of campaign details of, what he done actually. The beginning of this study pg. 14 Josei Toda assessed the situation in Kansai for exactly what it was..almost hopeless. So actually this hopeless campaign President Toda send Sen’nichi [Shin'ichi] Yamamoto [Daisaku Ikeda’s pseudonym in the multi volume collection of the Human Revolution which I then abbreviate throughout my notes] this campaign Pres. Ikeda first time he write about his own campaign. In other words, his maiden campaign, his first campaign for himself, so actually remain in history. P.I. [President Ikeda] was behind the scene more likely previously. Previous H.R. Pres. Toda is the center. This Vol. X as you heard, his camp, his reply to his master Pres. Toda. Actually, Vol. 9 is ended last Sept. 1976 and this Vol. X start year after Sept. 3, 1977. Previously he start writing of the HR, he really founder and his self. because this is his campaign and also he replying to Pres. Toda. Therefore in one of his essays in Book essays on HR they appear in Seikyo Shimbum in which HR book you know can’t cover whole things. The essay covers up between the lines. Pres Ikeda says in Essays in H.R., ‘that it is really difficult to write, not because of his inability to write, but because of his intensive Ichinen so diff. to write because Vol. X covers Pres. Toda’s last 2 1/2 years of campaign and SY his campaign his reply, how he dedicated. So actually writing about himself is not easy. Writing about someone else, Pres. Toda is easy. every detail he could write. Of course, once in awhile he couldn’t write every detail sometimes. Now before Sept this year, for one year he really consider how to write about Pres Toda’s last two and half year campaign which cover Vol. X and S.Y. own campaign. But, finally one of the morning Aug 27, 77, Morning he came to Honbu and said, “Now I’m going to write S.Y. march campaign. Then he start writing Sept. 3, 1st article Seikyo Shimbun appeared. Because Kansai campaign is the most important campaign of all. We heard of many people talk about Kansai campaign or spirit of Kansai. So easy we heard about, and many people still remember the wonderful campaign, but how Shin’nichi Yamamoto suffered himself to make victory of Kansai campaign. Because the campaign’s prime point of the Soka Gakkai for the future. You know honmatsu kukyo to? Consistancy form beg. to end? Recently many people looking for new guidance, any from Pres Ikeda. Some members return from Japan always, “did he say something new guidances?” no such a new guidances! Principal the same! Have you ever heard about same tree, but another roots? Same tree, but same roots more deeper in ground that is tree. Some tree looking for another roots, that is strange question. This is roots of Soka Gakkai today. If you understand this point clearly. If you understand roots of the Kansai campaign you can understand future, what kind of flower what kind of fruits its going to bear. That much Osaka campaign is very important to all those who S.Y. of today.
[All those who are the Shin'ichi Yamamotos of today.]
That time Osaka a terrible situation like NSA [former name of SGI-USA] many people not well trained members even group chiefs is 1 or 2 years of faith. Just like NSA. not easy. Many members go to Japan astonished and surprised. Gee Japan wonderful. Of course! 47 years. NSA only 17 years. To compare is impossible from the very beginning. That why we have lots of future. Don’t you think so?
“Hai!” [This was the only acceptable response - it's Japanese for "Yes" or "Okay".]
Josei Toda and Makaguchi photo
Josei Toda (standing) the second President of the Soka Gakkai and Tsuneburo Makiguchi (seated), the first President of the Soka Kyoiku Gakkai in 1930.
Only 17 years don’t compare to 47 years, give me another 30 years and another 30 years on top of that, then see what happens. Today fantastic Japan. Of course! 47 years Pres. Makiguchi started. President Toda completed foundation. Pres I. built on top of that. We going to be foundation first, for future NSA don’t you think so?
“Hai!”
That why I’m asking all you Shin’nichi Yamamoto’s. Now you are SY for future NSA. 47 years after say you are tremendous organization. We are Soka Gakkai but we are 17 years young Gakkai like Kansai. Shin’nichi Yamamoto who campaigned with young members, not easy, if you think of that. If your age is 28 please understand this situation. Hopeless situation in NSA! If all of you 20 years in NSA I can ask you many things. But you are really just young members, how can I ask you” You are just babies looking for milk. What I can give you is steak. Develop yourself first. Prepare your own tooth, sharpen enough. Then ask steak. Go through middle food first. Pres. Toda knew how difficult Kansai campaign was. That time in 1956, that time SY only 9 year member. He joined in 1947. This year is 30 years. August 24. Not easy to launch campaign. Why he ask SY? Reason is he like to know how SY reply in Osaka in impossible situation. Membership less than 30,000. Most of them newly joined members. And also Osaka Chapter Chief Sheracki, his name here Haruki, his real name Geichiro Sheracki, used to be Tokyo Flyer Pro Ball Pitcher. He was well know, but not a good candidate name for election for House of Counselor’s-like Senate in America. And target to win election was 200,000 votes, have to have that and membership, you, not age, but young in faith, not well trained in other words. Go do anything kind of members is fine. Like many of you who joined recently and doing Toban. Sometimes don’t know the reason is for Toban. Your senior leader assigned you that’s why you doing. Inside sometimes complaining feeling you have. You don’t know how much years after you will be able to talk about what you are doing today. Osaka members just like that, less than 30,000. Even hancho today equivalent today to chapter chief, shibucho is top in Osaka. No Honbucho is top, next is Chikubucho, next is Hancho today homencho, hancho ..Chikabucho is one year member-Han meetings more likely today. Now today’s hancho more likely 10 years members..Just young member is equivalent today that time Chapter chief, Shibucho is top in Osaka right. No Honbucho or anything, remember? So Chapter chief is top next is Chikabucho. Then next is hancho, so today you know you have Homencho. Homencho next Honbucho right? Chikabucho, Honbucho is Chikabucho appearing right here right? Hancho. What do you know? Chikabucho is today. Such Chikubucho is one year so you can understand how situation is difficult in Osaka.
(….Some inserted explanation for my readers
[Are you confused yet? Williams was talking about how fast the Soka Gakkai was growing and talking about the leadership ranking. Here’s a short and simplified breakdown from the bottom up. And do remember each of the leadership levels also was broken down into four divisions. Young women’s, young men’s, women’s and men’s.
Junior hancho– small group which formed the foundation of the Soka Gakkai usuall composed of 3 to 8 or so members.
Hancho-group leader over several junior hanchos. There could be several hanchos in district depending on the size of the district.
Chikabucho-District leader. There were often many districts in a chapter.
Shibucho-Chapter leader-There could be several chapters in a General Chapter.
Soshibucho-General chapter leader. There could be several General Chapter chiefs in a headquarters.
Honbucho-Headquarters leader. There was one headquarters in Santa Monica composed of several general chapters.
Sogohonbucho-Leader over multiple headquarters in a region. I’m a bit unclear to this day what the difference between a Homencho and a Sogohonbucho is. At one time we called Mr. Williams, Sogohonbucho.
Homencho– Territory leader. There were several Headquarters in a region and one Territory leader, e.g., Santa Monica Headquarters, North Hollywood Headquarters, East Los Angeles, Santa Ana.
Rejicho-National leader.
[Actually means "Chairman of the Board" - this was a unique title Ikeda had given to Mr. Williams - he was the only one.]
George M. Williams was over all the territory leaders in the US and associated territories. He was headquartered in Santa Monica on 525 Wilshire Blvd and other buildings nearby. Known as the North American Headquarters.
….Post based on notes continues below
Young Ikeda and President Toda 1955 Seikyo Shimbun photo
The young Daisaku Ikeda seated next Second President Josei Toda with trademark glasses holding a cigarette in 1955.
Han meetings, they could meet in today’s hand meetings more likely, but today you know homencho most likely 10 year member in NSA, but that time such Honbucho, Shibucho only 1 year, then training to fight for 200,000 target! Pres. Toda almost cruel mission given to SY. And Osaka itself is really terrible member who were very poor. Sick. I still remember that time Soka Gakkai 1956, I came to United States in 1957. Next year. So I remember clearly this time of Pres. Toda’s situation. I was eye witness. 1956 January, I was at President Ikeda’s home. This time I’m the one after he returned from Osaka who rubbed down his shoulders. SY skinny., eyes only so sharp. Scary.
[No, during this time frame Ikeda was NEVER anything that anyone would look at and think "skinny".]
I became disciple to Pres. Ikeda in 1953. The first time I met him person 1955. One year after, before Jan. 3, I became disciple of President Ikeda from my side, my Ichinen and determination. Although Pres. Today alive, but I decide I like to become disciple to him Pres Ikeda SY one year before 1955.
After that’s why almost every night I visited his home to do something for him, rub down, or talking, or listening. So I know the behind the scenes story of this so clear vision that still comes up in my mind. I’m so fortunate at that time. 1956 Jan. 3, before he go to Osaka. So anyway, SY at that time so physically weak, and Osaka members, nothing but poor and miserable people. Members of SG bad. So you feel ashamed to belong to SG at that time. Everybody say, “Oh, some bunch of poor people. Whole bunch of sick people.” Whole bunch of not good name. Maybe another 20 yrs, 30 yrs, NSA will be the really slick SG of Japan type of big organization.
Everyone of the leaders millions of leaders behind you. But today just like SG or NSA is still small organization only through convention people know, “Oh, NSA”, but still not in so-called tremendous impression. But wisdom so far, so far. That’s why the name knowing NSA. But Osaka worse than that. Just like an org. of hippys, organization of poor people that is 1956. Jan. situation. Pres. Toda knew SY physical condition so weak. I remember, he was so weak. Always high temperature. Always skinny, not round face like mine, skinny, bronchial pneumonia all the time.
[Nope. We have the pics.]
Therefore Pres. Toda his clear mission give to SY, if we understand today. Why Pres. Toda did it? But Pres. Toda know how Pres. Ikeda would do it. Pres. Toda knowing not that in 2 1/2 years he would die. Pres. Toda have to know how SY sould reply and future of Soka Gakkai will response. That same today. Therefore, Pres. Toda Ichinen like King of Beasts, Lion, Lion King. Kick lion cub down hill, cliff. How lion cub can climb up cliff to succeed crown. If you’re lion cub take such a challenge. It’s not easy at that time, moment you are assigned so many things and gee why does this happen to me? Sorry you gotta have! If you’re honorable NSA YMD! You gotta have. Enjoy your mission, to do impossible things. Constantly, I’m going to ask you to do it especially 1979. I’ve never expected to have response like terrible year past. That is disqualification of NSA of YMD. That kind of attitude is no qualify you to be leader of 1979 up. Your response was terrible of that time. From now on, if you really try to understand SY-his spirit of Osaka, better do your best. Don’t response of terrible way. Please leave such YMD. We do not want to have such YMD in NSA. Because if you are NSA of the future. Do it. Take care of own property, own things…Don’t feel like you’re doing it for somebody else. Do for your own sake, that’s why SY did it. That’s why SY felt this decisive campaign is for himself. Win or not is for his future. 14 pg. 4 lines from right column.
“For the past 10 years SY had never once protested against Toda’s requests whether they were explicit or implicit.” It’s easy not easy never question. Remember the Impossible Dream what we dedicated at the Sho Hondo Convention? Such a spirit of Sancho Panza. It’s like really impossible dream. Without question or pause to be willing to march into Hell for a heavenly cause. That exactly Pres. Toda asked SY and he reply to that. Osaka was hell, please remember that from the very beginning then you understand the whole article. Osaka was hell for SY, but he went for Hell. To Hell for Heavenly cause, now third President of the Soka Gakka International. You’ve got to understand this point-that was a campaign of Hell. You have guts to go to hell for a Heavenly cause-that’s SY. And Pres. Toda asked SY to go to Hell. Kicked cub down the cliff. Do you think its a clear thing? No! If you are future Rejicho’s of NSA got to do it. You will be my successor. I’m the 1st NSA Rejicho of America. So fortunately Pres. Iked appointed me that way. But some of you going to be 2nd Rejicho for the future. When you hesitate to do it you disqualify yourself. You’re the one really willing to do even job like Hell. Within hell for a heavenly cause. That’s the one SY did it for Pres. Toda. You know master and disciple Pres. Toda and SY. Pres. Ikeda asking us whole thing is hell sometime. Not only smiling NSA YMD “Oh you’re wonderful. He might say if you’re baby face, maybe. Faith if young he might say that. But when he really start training you, it’s not easy training for you. That make you great that’s why. Please understand that kind of way. P. Ikeda his expectation for you, is who going to become future leader of NSA? Who going to be willing to do for that? Therefore, Pres. Ikeda, SY accept everything without question. And worry inside, but with question he response everything he accept. Shitei Funi-you all call Pres. Ikeda master, easy to call him, but how many of you going to act as disciple? Disciple, not follower, only the Rolling Stones or Beatles fans they go any place give flowers, clap hands, easy! Many of you are fan for Pres. Ikeda. But disciple has really got to do it behind the scene. Like Hell. Job like Hell. So you sometime protect this building you say. But what kind of Ichinen do you protect the building? You’re RSG, you’re called. Reception, Security Group. But actually should be same spirit SY to protect this bldg. for Pres. Ikeda. Whoever come to reception, this is opportunity to be future leader, please undertake this. If anything happens you take responsibility with your life. Die for it. To protect NSA. Devote yourself to NSA with your life. That kind of way is really spirit of SY. Impossible request from Pres. Toda. Never answer back, that is a disciple. Push down the hill, rolling down, climb up, try to answer the request. Up on hill, master looking down, see club climbing with nails coming off, blood all over but still going up the cliff. That the lion cub. Finally up to the top. Lion King looking down and really chanting for the disciple. Or Pres. Toda’s ichinen taht time. Pres. Today not clear, but Pres. Toda expecting how SY reply to Pres. Toda. And SY did among 6 candidates, 3 lost in good chances. Tokayo candidates Mr. Harashima’s father, those people they failed. But impossible Osaka won, the two of them. One district level area of Kansai Shakubuku target. Pres. Toda did not say 1000 shakubuku per month. But SY did it because he knew result of campaign, faith of Guidance, Gosho, Gohonzon first. Whole thing SY did to members of Osaka 1 by 1 to really develop 1 become like general of 1000 soldiers. It’s easy to become general of soldiers. But all of you YMD be future leaders you are Honbucho’s of future, you are the General Director’s of the future. Therefore your mission not going to be easy. General of generals that’s why. You go to Pentagon you can tell General of General 4 stars, 5 star generals, he has to lead other generals-1 to 2 stars. That General of soldiers. Soldiers are really, I don’t say stupid, but really soldiers they just surprised general know everything. but knowing many things and become General of Generals and Professor of Professors, Doctor of Doctors. You know what I mean. Philosopher of philosophers, Professor of Professors that is not easy. This is campaign President Ikeda did in SY. That’s why it’s a tremendous, harsh campaign, you’re reading now.
Toda and Ikeda photo
The young leader Daisaku Ikeda walking alongside his master Second President Josei Toda. I believe this was taken at the head temple on pilgrimage to the Dai Gohonzon before Toda’s death. I don’t read Japanese, so if you do could you interpret the side bar written in Japanese into English? Thank you.
[There are a lot of different explanations for what's going on in that photo.]
It’s really harsh and also so much severe, but so much affection from Toda to SY as experience for the future General of generals and SY suffered, but then finally Gokaihi ceremony January 2nd he found Nam-myoho-renge-kyo, Gohonzon is really General’s strategy. To win whole campaign you use Gohonzon. This Gohonzon is one. President Ikeda say it is key to win your future. Everyone I don’t know who from this room is to become future general of generals. Dr. of Doctors, Prof. of Professors. Leader of leaders. Honbucho of Honbucho’s is Sogohonbucho. Rejicho of Rejicho’s, you’re going to be Rejicho of Rejicho’s, President of Presidents. To compare that Jimmy Carter, cheap, Senators nothing, Congressmen pussies. (laughter) Leaders of human being that is more great don’t you think?
Hai! (pg. 16)
[Next installment:]
Notes from George Williams continue:
“You’ll be the Saviors of the world that’s why! You’ll save the whole people of the world. Historically name to save mankind.
Rich people can become congressman. Senators same thing, Government same thing, they’re cheap. Use money that’s why. School cheap knowledge that’s why, but you’re going to use Gohonzon. That’s why great. You’re going to use Gohonzon as center. That’s why President Ikeda say, “general’s strategy.” You’re going to become general of generals. Gohonzon center that’s why you’re great. You’re going to be great leader. Think of that. Use money and become leader, it’s cheap. Don’t you think?
“Hai!”
Cheat other people and become leader, it’s cheap also. Using money, they destroyed by money, looking for fame destroyed by fame again, we are not looking for such a fame. We look for nothing, but response to President Ikeda’s request, that’s all. He’s not asking us either just only aside that’s all. He’s not telling us who going to be leader of the future. Those with deep response trying to understand what he expects, what he wants, that is a leader of the future. Not trying to tell me whole strategy. You go back to kindergarten teacher tell you what to do. Clap your hands. Come to here, stand up, sit down, say hi. That’s kindergarten way. Tell nothing. But find out way, that is general’s strategy, the general’s way. You got it?
“Hai!”
There is no answer. Only question. Come-that’s all. Assignments only. No clear explanations that is the most difficult thing. No help. Help yourself. SY–sometimes paid nothing.
[Yeah, right...]
You know Pres. Toda’s business 1950 collapse–everyone doubt Pres. Toda. Quit company, only SY remain to support Pres. Toda. Stick to Pres. Toda. Such a tremendous life to life response. That way no doubt whoever criticize Pres. Toda. SY stuck to Pres. Toda. This is only life condition from now into the future of Soka Gakkai and will be criticized, but together with Gohonzon, stick with Pres. Ikeda, that’s the way. That’s really the real leader of the future. That’s shitei funi (oneness of master and disciple) spiritual status.
Always campaign Pres. Ikeda say, “Before all other, employ the strategy of the Lotus Sutra. Shin-nichi now thoroughly realized that the only things he could count on were the Gohonzon and the Gosho (letters from Nichiren Daishonin).”
pg. 15. “Shin’nichi began by determining to win the victory and then traced the process backwards to decide on the first step to be taken in the campaign.”
Gohonzon’s great! Pres. Ikeda say at Osaka. Gohonzon say we win already and then trace backwards. Impossible situation, but he started out with no other way that’s why. Answer is Gohonzon in other words. Your answer, your future in Gohonzon. Only one thing you understand, you’re great already. Nothing greater than Gohonzon. Gohonzon so great that’s why you’ll be great with Gohonzon that kind of way. You try to secure your money. Money great you say. On that occasion in the future money will destroy you. But with Gohonzon that occasion never destroy you. Gohonzon will only build you up.
[Why did Gohonzon stop working?]
Second, Gohonzon is only answer, only key to win.
Also pg. 15. At first Shin’nichi sank into despair. Although he told not a one, he was in constant torment, day in and day out. “So actually Pres. Ikeda himself really suffered. Many members came from Osaka last October reading this article saying, “Gee, first time we understood SY suffered himself so much. Everyone thought a very joyful campaign. I still remember Osaka headquarters like aircraft carrier so many leaders, Mr. Wada, Yaoi, Mr. Starick, Yano, and all leaders of today from Osaka that time like one plane in and out like Osaka aircraft center. Whole building shaking. Like Saratoga carrier. Like Midway campaign in/out coming back with empty gas tanks to mother boat to refuel and go to another shakubuku campaign.
NSA headquarters going to become like that going to become strong. Come in and fill up confident go again. Fill up confident members, come back again. Just like bombing of confidence when lose all confidence come back recharge again (laughter). So that kind of way that kind of campaign take over in 1979. That kind of mother boat. Then whoever in-out people become Vice Pres. or Pres. of the future. So actually everyone at that occasion take your command and really try to commadere cockpit, flight crew, you’re the one who lead the whole future of Soka Gakkai.
[Remember, at this time, only Japanese men were ever national SGI leaders.]
That kind of way train yourself, no other special answer A) Question A) Answer. There no such answer that’s the problem. Answer you find out yourself, that’s the saying “Lotus Sutra” is the only answer key to win strategy whole thing.
[I ask again, why did it stop working?]
Ikeda in campaign mode in 1950 photo
Daisaku Ikeda in campaign mode in 1950’s.
Pg. 16. He could not allow the campaign to end in failure for 2 reasons. This is very important two reasons. How SY response to Pres. Toda. First, the defeat would frustrate one of Pres. Toda’s plans. Second it would mean that Shin’nichi would have lost his first full scale battle for Kosenrufu. It would be a tremendous setback in his life, a life dedicated to a supreme mission. He must win by all means. 1979 will be here. Wait til our situation clears up. Joshibu, Fujimbu, Men’s division, but YMD is only organization department division President Ikeda can rely on. Then 1979-pow. Make easy. This is really reason first defeat would frustrate Pres. Ikeda’s plan. Got it?
“Hai!”
Second. Your’s, nay, you would of lost your first full scale battle for Kosenrufu. Think about it. Pres. Ikeda wrote this to [about] SY, but just switch your name there. Read with your name and each time Shin’nichi Y name comes read your name. Then you understand whole thing..If you just read it with SY own name you don’t understand it. You read your own name over SY. Then whole thing makes sense to you.
Pg. 17. “A life filled with suffering is a life truly lived., Shin.” You, your name here. Okay read your name here substitute. A life filled with suffering is a life truly live your name, Shin. what’s your name? (laughter) Shin is somebody, name. Everybody shout your name. What’s your name?
(“Jim, John, Gary, Les, Bruce, etc.” loudly all at once).
A life filled with suffering is a life truly lived Jim. That’s your name. See everytime you read your name in it then you understand. Pres. Toda, Pres. Ikeda talking to you, I’m speaking to you now. Your name, don’t read SY’s name, or somebody’s name. Your name here. Makes whole thing make sense. Then reason because Pres. Toda says pg. 16 central part. “I’m eagerly but patiently to the day when you spread your wings and take to the air.” That everybody today chick today. You’re chicken. Kentucky fried chicken. No wings, no feathers, can’t fly even. If you fly you’ll fall down I know. That’s why you take this work for your future exactly what Pres. Toda telling you I eagerly but patiently looking forward to the day when you will spread your wings and take to the air.”
Pres. Ikeda says to YMD of NSA. None of us is full time priest. Nobody priest.
[Means you can't just do religion.]
We are all destined to display our full power in whatever field our missions call for. There can’t be a single exception. Others whine it won’t really be Kosenrufu. So your mission will be many many ways. Some of you Congressmen, Senators, Governors, small city of Santa Monica mayor. Anybody can be that in the future.
[So easy, right?]
Dr., profs, and many top leaders of Los Angeles area. Police Chief, Fire Chief, Hospital chief, headmaster, only never professional Homencho.
[SGI leader.]
Your profession different. That kind of way everybody has a mission. Please understand this point. Then Pres. Ikeda’s response to develop all members of Osaka future leader, is really happening today. We can say sometimes most of the top leaders of Soka Gakkai Headquarters is from Osaka, too strangely. Mr. Ogehara, Mr. Vic Pres Wada and many top Komeito leaders.
[Not so strange at all - nepotism. Ikeda promotes his friends.]
Osaka always win, even when Tokyo lose. Osaka never defeat. NSA so far never defeated in campaign. Last year we step back only one year, I’m glad, two years going to be too late I thought. Thanks to all of you in one year we stopped. 2nd year coming August, September, October I feel all were coming back this I really feel! to all of you. Going towards long journey one year is good rest. I think you experienced everything. But that one year is over. Please understand. Honeymoon is over (laughter). Back to work!! One year is long holidays. Never let you have such holiday again, for your future, that’s why. If only for my sake I stop kosenrufu. For you that’s why I have to keep asking lots of things. On behalf of Pres. Ikeda I’ll ask you to do many things. You’ll do it for me?
“Hai!”
Let’s do together for answer for Pres. Ikeda. I can die anytime for him. I tried one time in 1973-1974. Many times. But my life for you until you’ve grown up. I make foundation for you to fly. I’ll be aircraft carrier for you. You command future of NSA. That’s why someday you’ll take over but until then receive training. Could you?
“Hai!”
So this you have to be courageous, more courageous. Just like Edmund. pg. 17. Be Bold, be Bold and everywhere be bold! Pres. Ikeda using Edmund Spencer’s* words. Courage Young men’s division you need courage. If you lose courage you’re chicken. Don’t be coward YMD. YMD should be courageous. Of which Pres. Ikeda can be real proud. Courageous Young Men’s Division. Courage and Confidence. So anyway today I hope you read again and again this part, this Human Revolution., talk about nothing but your future campaign. If you understand this, understand your future at the same time. Read each time SY your name in it. When you understand Pres. Ikeda wrote to you for your future text. So many guidance you received today. But this is original point., such consistency from beginning to end. As long as your roots are deep enough you can develop your branches, flowers and fruits. You don’t look for next second roots. You are already enough trunk, and you have roots in Osaka campaign. Osaka campaign is roots, don’t look for another roots. I wish you good luck to continue action in 1978. 1978 is really our NSA year then enter 1979 campaign for 700 year Dai Gohonzon ceremony Pres. Ikeda named Los Angeles. Don’t you think this is a great honor?
“Hai!”
[Because of Ikeda's great failure, defeat, and humiliation in 1979, the big 700th anniversary celebration was canceled for the entire USA.]
Los Angeles he named World Culture Festival. Our city chosen many years ago. 700 years Dai Gohonzon year in L.A. Don’t you think so great honor?
“Hai!”
That’s why I hope you all be straight up. 78 become perfect union, perfect unite. Itai Doshin, Danketsu, ready for whatever his plan going to be. I’m co-ordinator of all such a movement, and you’ll be the whole things to carry on. I’m Yusohan Chief of Pres. Ikeda’s movement. All programs are Pres. Ikeda’s programs. All of us just carry on whatever he says. Going to do it?
“Hai!”
Let’s do it 1979. Dai Gohonzon, 700 year anniversary in America, in California, in Los Angeles, in Santa Monica. How’s that?
“Hai!”
That’s why you’re so great, so honorable and everything is taht way. I wish you good luck and hope 1978 will be your meaningful year and from my heart I thank all of you. You done many things, but 78 will be a more meaningful year for everyone. So enjoy lots of campaign together, okay?
“Hai!”
So thank you very much.
Sancho Daimoku.
Sang song of Human Revolution.
Who was Edmund Spenser?
“Edmund Spenser was a man of his times, and his work reflects the religious and humanistic ideals as well as the intense but critical patriotism of Elizabethan England. His contributions to English literature—in the form of a heightened and enlarged poetic vocabulary, a charming and flexible verse style, and a rich fusing of the philosophic and literary currents of the English Renaissance—entitle him to a rank not far removed from that of William Shakespeare and John Milton.”
“The philosophy underlying Spenser’s epic combines three strands. Platonism, which (as seen through the eyes of Renaissance commentators) stressed the harmony between love and beauty on the human and divine levels, is blended with the less imaginative and more concrete Aristotelianism of the scholastic tradition, with its disciplined analysis and careful reflection on the moral life, which Spenser had probably learned in school. These two elements are penetrated by a strong Calvinistic Christianity, stressing man’s weakness, his need for a strict moral life, and the total dependence of humanity on the atonement of Christ. Thus the work itself is a fine example of an attempted synthesis between the traditions of Christianity and those of classical antiquity that characterizes all the best productions of the Renaissance.”
World Tribune evidently put out a piece on the Kansai Campaign in 2001. Here’s the link.
[The Kansai Campaign has been mythologized - since the only information about it comes to us through Ikeda's lying lens, we have no idea what really happened. Ikeda has had a narrative created that makes him out to be the supreme, pure-hearted, victorious hero who does everything solely to please Toda, because that's the kind of follower Ikeda wants - someone who will do anything for him. Obviously, whatever he wrote doesn't work in real life - the Soka Gakkai in Japan has been shrinking just like all the other SGI organizations around the world. Ikeda just got lucky - apparently all the planets aligned, and thanks to societal conditions being just right, they were able to achieve their goals that time. But it was just that time - it's been downhill since then.]
