2020.08.28 16:43 japplefield USF Football // Important Season Ticket Member Update

[Email from USF Athletics]
Bulls Fans,
Thank you for your continued support and for your patience and understanding as we work through the many challenges to give our student-athletes and coaches an opportunity to compete this fall and provide a safe, comfortable and entertaining of an environment as possible for our fans.
The current pandemic has created many uncertainties and necessitated numerous changes for the 2020 USF Football season, and we know you have many questions. We will attempt to answer many of them here and will continue to communicate and provide more answers as soon as we are able to do so.
As we have all seen over the past several months, the situation can be very fluid and we will continue to monitor any events that may occur both locally and nationally that may require changes to the plan for the 2020 season and inform you of those as soon as possible.

Season Ticket Member Options

For 2020 Football
We understand the challenges football game attendance may present this season and that this is not the home season many envisioned when they renewed or purchased new season tickets. With that in mind and with great appreciation for the continued, and in many instances long-term, support of our season ticket members, below we have outlined options for: 1) crediting your current season ticket purchase to the 2021 season, 2) donating your 2020 football season ticket purchase to the Bulls Club, or 3) receiving a complete refund on your 2020 football season ticket purchase.

Credit toward the 2021 Season

We are hopeful many of you will chose to credit your 2020 season ticket purchase to the 2021 season, when we are excited to take on the Florida Gators among six home games in Raymond James Stadium.
With this option, your entire 2020 season ticket purchase will be automatically credited to the 2021 USF Football season. There are many benefits to choosing to credit your ticket purchase to 2021:
• You will keep your 2020 season seat location(s) for the 2021 season, and you will be fully paid for the 2021 season. • As a Season Ticket Member, you will receive presale access to single-game tickets this year for home games played in the 2020 season before the general public can purchase tickets. • You will receive a special season ticket member discount on the purchase of single-game tickets for this home season.
If you are not interested in keeping your seats and crediting your 2020 season ticket purchase to the 2021 season, we have additional options:

Bulls Club Donation

Season Ticket Members have the option of donating their 2020 ticket purchase to the Bulls Club Annual Fund. The contribution would be tax-deductible, and Season Ticket Members who choose this option will receive double priority points for their ticket amount. With USF Athletics in need of your support now more than ever, we greatly appreciate those who choose this option to support the Bulls Club!
To donate your ticket purchase, please visit here to inform us by September 7th.
For more information, please contact Stephen Hammond in the Bulls Club office at [email protected] or by phone at (561) 414-9628.

Refund

You may elect to receive a full refund on your 2020 Football season ticket purchase. If you would like to request a refund, please visit here to fill out a form by September 7th.

Schedule Updates

As other conferences and schools have made decisions regarding their ability to play this fall, we are sure you have noticed that originally scheduled games at Texas (Sept. 5), Bethune-Cookman (Sept. 12) and vs. Nevada (Sept. 19) have been canceled.
We are excited to announce we have worked hard to replace two of those games and now have an 11-game schedule for 2020. The entire schedule can be viewed HERE.
We will kick off the 2020 season with a home game vs. The Citadel on Sept. 12, which will serve as the debut game for first-year head coach Jeff Scott.
We were also thrilled to recently announce a new three-game series vs. Notre Dame that will begin this season on Sept. 19 in South Bend and will conclude with the Fighting Irish coming to play in Raymond James Stadium and a return trip for the Bulls to Notre Dame Stadium on two future dates that have yet to be determined. We are excited to add the Fighting Irish to our lineup of future nonconference opponents coming to Tampa that includes Florida, Alabama, Louisville, Miami, NC State, Boise State and several more in the coming years.

Home Game Attendance

In the interest of providing the safest and best experience for our fans, we have made the decision to not have fans at the first home game on Sept. 12.
We do plan to welcome fans to our remaining four home games of the 2020 season, if state and local officials deem it appropriate for us to do so at that time. Those games are:
• Saturday, Oct. 10 vs. ECU
• Friday, Oct. 23 vs. Tulsa
• Saturday, Nov. 21 vs. Navy
• Friday, Nov. 27 vs. UCF in The War on I-4
Season Ticket Members will have access to a special presale to purchase tickets to those games beginning on Sept. 8. More information regarding the presale will be sent next week.
A reminder that all USF home and American Athletic Conference football games will be broadcast as part of our new American Athletic Conference rights agreement with ESPN, and all USF Football games can be heard on our Bulls Unlimited digital radio network and on our flagship radio station 95.3 WDAE.

New for the 2020 Football Season

Mobile Tickets

In order to best ensure safety and convenience for fans entering Raymond James Stadium, we have transitioned to mobile ticketing beginning this fall. More information regarding our mobile ticketing app and accessing tickets on your mobile device will be coming shortly.

Reduced Seating and Parking Capacity at Raymond James Stadium

In partnership with the Tampa Sports Authority and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, we are establishing a physically distanced environment for our fans to enjoy games this fall. While this means there will be changes in capacity and locations in both stadium seating and its surrounding parking lots, it is our goal to provide fans the best possible options to see the Bulls play at Ray Jay this season.

Enhanced Safety Measures

The Tampa Sports Authority has made several enhancements to Raymond James Stadium to help create the safest possible experience for fans attending games this season. We will have more information concerning all these upgrades, but below are some of the highlights:

CASHLESS:

All transactions will now be cashless at Raymond James Stadium. Should you forget to bring cash, reverse ATM machines will be available throughout the stadium that will allow you to load cash onto a card that may be used at stadium vendors.

NO BAGS:

In order to limit the transfer of items between stadium staff and fans as well as to expedite entry and reduce lines, no bags larger than a small clutch will be permitted to be brought into the stadium this fall.

FACE MASKS:

Face masks will be required to be worn by all fans and all stadium staff at all times upon entering Raymond James Stadium.

HYGIENE UPGRADES:

Upgrades have been made to increase the number and accessibility of hand-washing stations and sanitation kiosks throughout the stadium.

PEDESTAL SCANNERS:

Pedestal ticket scanners with tap-and-go technology have been installed at every Raymond James Stadium gate, eliminating the exchange of phones between stadium staff and fans and speeding stadium entry.
Further information will be communicated to you soon.

QUESTIONS?

For additional questions or concerns you may have concerning the 2020 USF Football season, please email us at [email protected] or call and/or text us at 1-800-Go-Bulls.
Many of our staff members remain working remotely to help provide our student-athletes a safe environment in the Lee Roy Selmon Athletics Center to prepare this season.
We hope to see you in the stands at Raymond James this fall, and we truly appreciate your continued support and understanding.

2020.08.18 21:19 OhEvolve A PC for an Adobe Suite Master - WoW SWTOR Play

What will you be doing with this PC? Be as specific as possible, and include specific games or programs you will be using.
  1. I will be using Adobe Suite in this order (sometimes 4 apps open at once) A. InDesign B. Illustrator C. Photoshop D. Xd E. Audition F. AfterEffects G. Dimension H. Occasionally others like Animate, Character Animator, etc.
  2. I will be using Apple Developer to create Apps (I hope) and iTunes Connect for ebooks
  3. May use other graphics and video editing software as needed (sketchup or similar)
  4. I will sporadically binge-play WoW and SWTOR and possibly enter the world of Elder Scrolls someday. >What is your maximum budget before rebates/shipping/taxes?
$1300 + $250 for monitor
When do you plan on building/buying the PC? Note: beyond a week or two from today means any build you receive will be out of date when you want to buy.
I plan on building it this weekend
What, exactly, do you need included in the budget? (ToweOS/monitokeyboard/mouse/etc) NEED: Tower, awesome light show, and all the stuff that goes inside the tower. HAVE: keyboards and mice. I have Windows 10+ Software. I could use my TV as monitor but would prefer sRGB Nvidia one so my print books can be accurately represented on my screen. Which country (and state/province) will you be purchasing the parts in? If you're in US, do you have access to a Microcenter location?
I am in Tulsa, Oklahoma, US. I don't know what a Microcenter is.
If reusing any parts (including monitor(s)/keyboard/mouse/etc), what parts will you be reusing? Brands and models are appreciated.
I have an old Asus usb wired keyboard, an apple usb keyboard, an apple magic mouse and an old Asus usb wired mouse. My TV is a Samsung and it's at least 5 yrs old.
Will you be overclocking? If yes, are you interested in overclocking right away, or down the line? CPU and/or GPU?
I don't know if I should do this or not...will it help my graphics heavy workload stay smooth and be color-true? I think I'd prefer spending $$ on Nvidia GForce & RAM unless they're useless without overclocking.
Are there any specific features or items you want/need in the build? (ex: SSD, large amount of storage or a RAID setup, CUDA or OpenCL support, etc)
  1. SSD/HD-I think 1TB SSD is ideal? 500GB would suffice? Then 500GB HD for storage-I keep most stuff in cloud and only store backup on HD.
  2. Nvidia GTX or GFORCE or whatever they are calling it? Single Processor (I have read dual processors don't help with Adobe Suite apps, and Nvidia causes significant speed/handling increase...am I right?), Perfect World? GTX 1600 or above - 6 or 8 GB
  3. RAM: 16-32GB DDR4 ??? Idk all the RAM specs and just can tell that 16 is barely enough on my MacBook Pro (I don't want a Mac now...I'm over it...unless it's most cost efficient option)
  4. PROCESSOR: Does this matter? Seems like everyone says Intel 7-9 +... A local guy was trying to convince me a Ryzen 5 3600 would outperform Intel 7 or 9. I don't really understand how, so I'm open if that's a true statement.
What type of network connectivity do you need? (Wired and/or WiFi) If WiFi is needed and you would like to find the fastest match for your wireless router, please list any specifics.
I would like WiFi just because I work in my she-shed behind the house so I'd be running an ethernet cable out the living room window (then to have it actually exposed to weather), which seems a bit uncool. I'd like to have it wired but don't see a safe way to do that. My WiFi Router is an Arris Surfboard SBG6900AC .
Do you have any specific case preferences (Size like ITX/microATX/mid-towefull-tower, styles, colors, window or not, LED lighting, etc), or a particular color theme preference for the components?
I like LIGHTS AND COLORS!!! LOTS OF THEM!! As many lights and colors as can be had!!!
If I had to choose a single color, my favorite colors are 1. Alien Green, 2. Purple/Violet.
Size doesn't matter (I swear).
Window doesn't matter-unless I can't experience the lights without it.
Do you need a copy of Windows included in the budget? If you do need one included, do you have a preference?
No, I have a Windows 10 disk/serial number. I have an Apple external CD Rom/DVD drive that is usb...will that work for install? Or, can I provide my serial number or copy to installer so I don't have to figure that out?
Extra info or particulars: All of my requests are from my research which is limited to this week. I have had Macs for the last 10 yrs so I am really out of the loop. I do know that running multiple Adobe Suite Apps smoothly at once is key for me. I'd love to have a decent WoW and SWTOR experience too, but those come second to work. I can spend $1300 now and get a better monitor later, rn I see Full HD sRGB 100% Nvidia Compatible OR GTX monitors will run me about $250. If I can get the monitor for $150, that makes my budget for build $1400. Total, I'd really like to keep it under $1500 so I can feed my dog next month.
I have read multiple articles that say a Single Nvidia processor is best for Adobe CC...and it must be dedicated (not Intel run). Not sure if I am correct on anything. I don't understand what the Intel 7/9 has to do with it, maybe that it can run hard core graphics cards like GTX/G-Force? And I know I am maxed out at 16GB RAM as it is, although I'm on max spec MacBook Pro 2016 15" with 16GB RAM and Radeon Graphics (actually I'm all Bootcamp rn bc the touchbar wacked out on Catalina update and will not allow update or Mac to run outside Safe Boot).

2020.03.30 21:13 admijosco05 [RF] Old Fashioned

Sitting at a high-top chair at the bar in the restaurant I drank my drink, alone and silently. Honestly, I wasn’t a big drinker, but I like an Old Fashioned from time to time, it made me feel like I was in an F. Scott Fitzgerald book. Soft, classical music hummed in the background as I watched the ice cube slowly melt and mix like a complicated dance with the last sip of whiskey. Drops of condensation beaded down the lowball glass as I continued to acknowledge my decision.
Glancing up from my drink I gazed into the mirror of the bar. A short brunette walked through the door. She scanned the room looking for someone and began walking towards the bar. Delicately and discretely my eyes followed her over my shoulder as she got closer and closer. Quickly I looked down as she was only a few feet away. I suddenly felt a gentle touch on my shoulder. Confused, I turned around and blurted, “Hello!”
“Hi, I’m Cora. Are you Duncan?” Her voice was soft but high pitched and clearly excited, but how did she know my name?
“Yes, how…” she interrupted me.
“I’m good, just a little nervous about this whole thing.” She took off her jacket and pulled out the chair next to me. My mouth opened to tell her she had the wrong person, but she quickly continued, “I’m kind of cynical about blind dates, but I like dating apps even less.”
“Yeah, I agree,” I said in an attempt to slow her down and correct her. Duncan was a fairly unique name, but I knew I wasn’t the Duncan she was looking for. My dad was Irish and a big fan of all types of race car driving, so he named me after Duncan Hamilton, who was known for being a lively extrovert described as “fiercely independent”, “colorful”, and an “adventurer”. I didn’t inherit any of the qualities of my namesake.
Before I could tell her she had the wrong Duncan she started talking about meeting people the “old fashioned” way and how she always expected to meet a guy the way they did in movies or TV shows. Some type of meet-cute at a coffee shop or a grocery store, maybe at a concert or while reaching for the same copy of Wuthering Heights at a used bookstore. I nodded along wide-eyed and at the mention of “old fashioned,” I unintentionally looked at my drink.
“It looks like you need a refill.”
I looked at her, ready to set the record straight about her innocent mistake. She was cute, and she has incredible curly hair with an ear to ear smile. Most obvious of all was that she seemed happy. I don’t know what possessed me to say what I said next, it makes no sense, but I did. “Sure, why not!”
She waved at the bartender, Roger - who I affectionately dubbed Rog to no one but myself, came over and she asked for a Manhattan, then pointed to me and I asked for another Old Fashioned. “What a classy group we are!” She laughed and poked me in the shoulder. I gave a shy side smile back.
I don’t know what the hell I was thinking. Any minute now some guy also named Duncan was going to come walking through the door and I was going to look like some creep who pretended to be other people’s dates. I know I should have said something and just put a stop to this charade, but first of all, I was having a tough time stopping her from talking and from stopping myself from listening. It had been a while since I talked to someone like this and it was nice. Rog mixed our drinks and Cora dove into the Cliff Notes version of her life. Like most people living here nowadays, she was a transplant to San Francisco. She was originally from a suburb south of Tulsa and she grew up in a house alongside the Arkansas River. She told me that when she was feeling homesick, she would go to the Sutro Baths to daydream by the water and examine the graffitied run-down remains of the old public bathhouse. She said it’s what most of the mid-west looked like now.
Our drinks arrived and I studied her patiently. She was effortless, she was confident and dynamic as she resumed telling me about how she started pre-law at OU and found her calling for helping people after taking a course on Indigenous Peoples Law. She graduated, finished her law degree at Berkley and is now an Immigration Lawyer at a nonprofit.
“Wow, I’ve been going on for forever,” I didn’t care, “and I haven’t asked anything about you.” She raised her glass to her lips and took a quick sip. “So, what do you do? Where are you from? What do you do for fun?” She jokingly rattled off the questions are breakneck speed. “You know, all that good first date stuff.”
A first date.
I hadn’t been on a first date in over nine years. I don’t even know how these are supposed to work anymore and I didn’t know what I was supposed to say. Sure, I was born and raised in the Bay Area, I was an urban planner and for six years I was married to my best friend, but that wasn’t why I was sitting at this bar.
My wife, Elizabeth, and I met at a house party during my junior year at the University of Washington. She was also from the Bay and I fell for her that night. Liz, on the other hand, thought I was a huge dork but kept me around, I spent the next two years convincing her I wasn’t, and somehow, I tricked her into marrying me. Over the course of our relationship, I grew more as a person than I could have imagined. She got me to do things I never thought I could do and be someone I didn’t think even existed. She was great at that, making people feel at ease and bringing the best out of them.
A few months after we moved back to San Francisco to be closer to our families while we planned to start our family, she found a lump on her breast. We were about to go on a vacation with my parents to Ireland. She reassured me and told me that she would get it checked out once we got back in a couple of weeks. It’s a ridiculous idea, but I can’t help but wonder if we would have gone in and found out what it was before we left, we could have fixed it all in those thirteen days we missed. It’s a misguided notion and it’s not how cancer works, but it’s stuck in my head as much as the memory of sitting in the doctor’s office as UCSF Health is seared there as well. She told us that Liz had stage 4 breast cancer at it metastasized to her brain. Like a coward, I froze as Liz dived in with questions about treatment plans and the next steps. The world around me stopped until I ultimately spat out a question I shouldn’t have asked. “How long do you think we have?” I shouldn’t have asked.
The deterioration was rapid and unforgiving. She was the fiercest person I knew, and I watched my wife lay in bed not strong enough to even eat. A week after our sixth anniversary she died. I died that day too.
A funeral, a burial, endless condolences and countless offerings of prayers, months and months of monotonous going through the motions led me to this barstool. I was ready. I was ready to die. I put on a suit, slipped a $100 bill into my wallet and went to our favorite special date night spot. I would order a drink and then go home and take a handful of Ambien. Simple, quiet and bromidic, just like me.
“Are you from here?”
“Yeah, born and raised, I think one of the few anymore. I went to school in Seattle though, and moved back a few years ago.”
We went back and forth with casual banter about ourselves, our likes and dislikes, our travel dreams, odd hobbies, and our passions. Since Liz died I hadn’t done this, not just go on date, but just talk to someone. Loneliness can creep in swiftly and attach itself like a weed, unchecked it can spread without someone even realizing it’s there. I got so used to being alone and talking to myself that I completely forgot how nice it can be to make a simple human connection. Cora was a revelation to me, and she didn’t even know it. Hell, she didn’t even know who I actually was. We continued talking for about twenty minutes when she got a text message.
Duncan (BLIND)
Hi, I’m running late, be there in 10.
I only caught a quick glance, but I knew what was coming next.
She squished her face quizzically. “Is your name really Duncan?”
“It really is, but I’m the wrong Duncan. I’m so sorry, I meant to tell you when you first sat down.” I hesitated and stumbled with my words, “I just, I, I don’t even know. I’m just really sorry for the mix-up.”
With an awkward half giggle, she slid herself from the bar and lifted herself out of the chair. “Well this was…” she paused, “interesting? But I’m going to go wait for my date over there.”
I nodded and smiled embarrassedly with just my lips.
Cora wandered off to the other side of the restaurant and I went back to staring at the ice cube melting and the condensation racing down my glass. A few minutes later at tall businessman type walked in and waved to Cora. I smiled and took one final swig of my cocktail; I sat the glass down and slid the $100 bill across the bar. With a long sigh, I gripped the leather chair pushing myself out my seat and made my way to the exit.

Some Background

The Tulsa Run is a tradition for the Tulsa running community and one of the oldest races in the state. Among the lore and allure of the race is the fact that the race gives out cups (i.e. coffee mugs) to men who finish under 60 minutes and women who finish under 70 minutes. There is much humblebragging among runners of all ages about if they ever got a cup and how many cups they have.
Personally, I’ve always loved this race, and it’s been a tradition in my family. My dad was a runner and counts two cups in his collection. I remember watching him run this race when I was in elementary school. My mom, brother, and grandfather have all run the Tulsa Run at some point. In college, I started running and ran the race myself. I’ve now run twelve Tulsa Runs, and although I came close two years ago at 60:51, I had never scored the elusive cup.

Training

I’m a 36M at about 160lbs. I ran a 3:04 marathon PR back in April and thought that a sub-60 Tulsa Run, with proper training, on a good day, should be possible this year. In the past several years, I had always run the Tulsa Run as part of fall marathon training, but this year I decided to train specifically for a 15K. Pfitz 18/70 worked well for my marathon last spring, so I decided to try his 12-week 15K/10-miler plan from Faster Road Racing, using the plan that capped at 60mpw.
The training went pretty well, though it seemed to take forever for the hot Oklahoma summer to break this year. The plan is similar to his marathon plans, but with the long runs capping at 15 miles. Some of my tempo runs were a little slower than I wanted but with several 5am runs at 80 degrees with nearly 100% humidity, I didn’t worry about it too much.
Two weeks before the Tulsa Run, I ran a tune-up 10K and came in at 38:53, which was a PR. It seemed like a good indication that I was ready.

Pre-race

I got to the start area about an hour early, hit the bathroom, and met with some folks from my normal Saturday group. About thirty minutes before the race, I went out for a couple easy miles with J, who was going for his first cup as well. We got back to the start and I was able to get in near the front of the corral. Unfortunately, I missed the start of the Master 15K Championship, which was ten minutes before the open 15K. The weather was looking great at about 45 degrees Fahrenheit, with wind at less than 5mph.

Race

1st 5K

We took off from the downtown heading east with a slight downhill, and I was just a few feet ahead of the sub-60 pace group. After a quarter mile or so, J was about ten meters ahead of me. Watching my watch though, I knew that my pace was fine and that I needed to run my own race. After about a mile, M, a good friend from my Saturday group (who has numerous cups), caught up to me. He passed me but stayed pretty close. A half mile later, M wave me to get behind him as we turned west and into the wind, and I definitely appreciated his support. The first two miles were pretty flat, but there were a number of turns. I went through the first 5K in 19:56, and I had the sub-60 pace group just a few feet behind me.

2nd 5K

J was now a good 25 meters ahead and M was still only a meter or so ahead of me. This part of the course has fewer turns but several rolling hills. Heading up a hill at mile 4, my legs felt good and I was able to keep my pace around 6:20 where it needed to be. I came through the 10K mark at 39:34. The sub-60 pace group was far enough back that I couldn’t hear them. I was ahead of schedule but I also feared what was yet to come.

Final 5K

The last section of this race has always been the toughest: a couple flatish miles, followed by a mile long slog uphill, to get back to downtown Tulsa. I waved at J as he past me after the race’s only turnaround. He was definitely focused on the finish. He was around a quarter mile ahead of me, by this point. With about a mile and half left to go, I past M, who gave me some final words of encouragement. Coming up to the hill, I knew I would slow down, but I had the time to spare. I hit the first pitch and hunkered down for the pain, passing a couple folks. After a brief reprieve, I took the last left turn and headed up to downtown. With 3/4 of a mile left, I knew I would make it, but I still had to run it in. The finish line in sight, I tried to speed up but my legs were still feeling the hills. A couple blocks later, the excitement got to me, and I was able to pick it up, relatively speaking, for the last quarter. I came through the finish at 59:20. It was done.

Post-race

J had come through under 59:00 and M was right behind me, and still ahead of the sub-60 pacers. I hugged them both and chatted with some other folks from my Saturday group as they were coming in. I walked down a little farther to the table that held the elusive cups. In the most anti-climatic way, the volunteer just took my word for it that I ran the time and gave me a cup. I walked to my car, put on some dry clothes, and then headed back to the finish area for a beer in my new cup.

What’s Next

With one major running goal accomplished, I’m going to rest for a few weeks and then train for a spring marathon. I’d love to run Boston some day, but I need to shave off just a little more time. I’m contemplating trying Pfitz 18/85, though I’m a little worried that I’ll be opening myself up to injury.
Thanks for reading my first race report. If you’ve ever run the Tulsa Run, share your story.

2019.10.29 17:00 SaintRidley Wrestling Observer Rewind ★ Mar. 2, 1987

Going through old issues of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter and posting highlights in my own words, continuing in the footsteps of daprice82. For anyone interested, I highly recommend signing up for the actual site at f4wonline and checking out the full archives.

  • Ann Gunkel, a former outlaw promoter, has passed away from cancer at the age of 50. Her husband, Ray, had been one of the owners of Georgia Championship Wrestling (same promotion that Vince would buy on Black Saturday) until his death in 1972. The remaining owners then tried to push her out of Ray’s share of the promotion. Just before the annual NWA Thanksgiving show in Atlanta, every wrestler who worked for the promotion up and quit to join Ann’s new All South Wrestling Association. She also filed an anti-trust lawsuit against the NWA. As Dave understands things, the NWA settled out of court and bought her out, stabilizing the Atlanta scene. Ann’s influence is still felt - her promotion getting on WTCG (later WTBS then TNT) in Atlanta was the beginning of wrestling on what would become the Superstation, which would lead to Black Saturday giving WWF that coveted timeslot and channel which would start this wrestling war we’re covering right now between JCP and WWF (which would escalate into the Turner buyout of JCP, the Monday Night Wars, and WWE’s eventual virtual monopoly in the years to come, and now AEW is on TNT so we’re back at it again). Competing with Gunkel forced the Georgia office to up their game significantly, bringing in big names like Bill Watts and the Briscoes and making GCW one of the deepest talent pools in the U.S., which led to Watts and the Briscoes buying into the office. It’s also how Vince got his in, because they sold to him. After getting bought out, Gunkel remained on the fringes of the promotional side of the business, working occasionally with guys like Ole Anderson and Joe Blanchard, but never breaking back into major relevance.
  • WWF taped Saturday Night’s Main Event (scheduled to air March 7) on February 21. It was a sold out crowd with a $200k+ gate at the Joe Louis Arena. The best match on the card was said to be King Kong Bundy beating Jake Roberts by DQ, and Roberts was over more than anyone, including Hogan. They did stuff furthering the Steamboat/Savage angle and closing out the “who gets Elizabeth” chapter of the Savage/Steele storyline. The main was the battle royal, which Hercules won. The big thing was the tease of Hogan/Andre without giving away much - their only interaction aside from staredowns was Andre bumping Hogan over halfway through. They wind up delaying the air date to March 14.
Watch: Saturday Night's Main Event March 14, 1987
  • Wrestlemania 3 has sold about 40,000 tickets as of the end of this past week. There are still five weeks left to sell, but it’s going to be hard to sell 50,000 tickets at this point now that all the big fans have theirs and the good seats are gone. Dave isn’t sure how they’re going to do it, but he figures they’ll find a way to pack in the people and fill the place. PPV will be blacked out in Michigan and Ontario to promote live attendance from people in the area.
  • Latest Wrestlemania celebrities include Mary Hart (timekeeper), Bob Uecker (ring announcer) and Aretha Franklin (to sing at the intro). Alice Cooper, Bruce Boxleitner, and Samantha Fox are also said to be involved, and rumors are also placing Arnold Schwarzenegger and Pete Rose there. Imagine if Pete Rose were at Wrestlemania 3 and got tombstoned by one of the Bulldogs.
  • Dave issues a couple corrections. Last week he had the Midnight Express as winning the NWA US Tag belts, but they actually stole them which set up Cornette being suspended so he could go on his honeymoon. Also a couple weeks ago he had a wrong attendance figure for a WWF show in LA.
  • Dave’s got some info this week on promotions that don’t usually get covered. In Deep South Wrestling, Mr. Wrestling 2 and Tommy Rich are the major draws. Also Fantasy (a valet) garnered enormous heat on the Feb. 20 show by individually insulting all 200 fans in attendance. Good on her. Capitol Sports in Puerto Rico has Chris Youngblood, whom Dave thinks is a potentially great wrestler if given a chance. Dave briefly covers Stampede, where Hiroshi Hase (working as Cong #1 of the Viet Congs) has just left to work in Japan (Dave predicts he’ll be a superstar). Hase’s looking even better in ring than Owen Hart in their matches together lately. Brian Pillman should be back soon (he had a separated shoulder), and Chris Benoit was in for a week between tours in Japan. International Wrestling in Montreal is hanging on by a thread. NWF is advertising their first tv taping for New Jersey and are advertising Scott Hall, Wendi Richter, the Samoans, Stan Hansen, Bruiser Brody and more. Should be interesting if it comes to anything. Sgt. Slaughter’s upped his price to $3k per match, so he’s effectively priced himself out of the business.
  • [WWF] Jake Roberts’ face turn aired this past weekend. Honkytonk hit him over the head with the guitar, and Jake should get over great. Also, one thing I haven’t really mentioned much here is that Dave has a tendency to use nicknames for a lot of the wrestlers, especially for ones he thinks poorly of (such as the Flabulous Moolah, the Glamour Ghouls, Junkfood Dog, etc.). It’s something that has been going on for years at this point. There’s occasionally a letter that comes in asking him to not use the nicknames, and then you get letters defending it and Dave defends it as well, and it’s a thing. All this is to say that here he calls Roberts “Jack the Snack” and I’m highly amused because of how that reads to 2019 eyes.
Watch: Jake the Snake turns face
  • JCP has a couple things going on behind the scenes. They’re pulling their guys from the Central States by the end of this week. Plans to run a territory in opposition to Jarrett and Lawler are scrapped, and so they’re going to stick to monthly shows in some of the cities in the area instead. Rumors are swirling about a top secret meeting in Florida between Dusty Rhodes, Jim Crockett, and Mike Graham. The leading theories are that Crockett will take over Florida (with Graham getting a percentage on Florida revenues), a complete buyout of Florida by JCP, or no deal and both sides will continue to run shows in Florida. Dave expects confirmation in the next couple weeks, but suspects one of the first two is the case.
  • [JCP] Ole Anderson’s face turn should happen in the next week or two, and in the leadup Ole gave a promo on how the four horsemen formed that rivals Vince McMahon’s story of how his grandfather invented pro wrestling. Dave’s wishing for Ole to stay a heel, because the idea of face Ole just isn’t fun.
  • UWF had their biggest crowd for a Power Pro taping yet with 2,200 in Fort Worth on Feb. 21. Dave has results and a few other notes, but nothing super big. Steve Williams has been acknowledged as going to Japan, so former University of Tulsa football player Steve Cox has been billed as his apprentice and gotten put into some prominent spots (counting the pin in a surprisingly good Ted DiBiase vs. One Man Gang match, for instance). Dave thinks he has potential, but don’t expect awesome matches at this stage (he never will make it to the big leagues).
  • Kendall Windham’s injury that he suffered working in Florida earlier in February is legit. He broke his leg and continued to wrestle on it for about a week until it got discolored and a doctor told him to take eight weeks off. In other Florida news, Ron Simmons was the subject of a major article in a Miami newspaper (I can’t find the article). Unfortunate timing since it looks like he’s gone now to work for JCP and will be out of the territory.
  • In other Florida news, they’re leaning hard into the sexual innuendo lately. Dave notes their tv show is heavy on it, specifically citing a comedy bit they’re doing where fans can write in for a dream date with heel Ed Gantner. Practically every promo for this that Scott Hall, Tracy Smothers, and Steve Armstrong are doing seem less like they’re trying to build fan interest and more like they’re advertising for groupies (let’s be real, that’s probably the only reason this angle is happening at all).
  • In weird Florida news, Keiji Mutoh was on the Feb. 10 show. This was all part of an angle for back in New Japan, though, where they have a whole story about him getting attacked by gangsters who have issued death threats whenever he comes to the U.S. So Mutoh was supposed to wrestle the match, but gets attacked by a masked fan from the audience who pounds on him with a cane. They never unmasked him, and Dave’s sure it won’t come out, but it was Antonio Inoki under the mask.
  • Minor notes: Al Scott, a jobber in Alabama, was on the Price is Right as a contestant. Bam Bam Bigelow’s deal with New Japan is for $52k for 10 weeks. Magnum T.A. was able to walk 100 yards with a walker. WWF will start drug testing their wrestlers for cocaine and speed with a two strikes system. Randy Savage allegedly punched a 9 year old fan (Randy’s story is the kid tried to touch Elizabeth’s hair, the kid’s family’s story is the kid tried to give Randy a high five).
  • Dave clarifies last week’s rundown on Wrestlemania that those were his predictions. He says if he knew what the results were he wouldn’t print them.
  • Someone in the letters section asks if Dave thinks Baba or Inoki will follow the lead of AJW and try to get on US tv. Dave thinks it’d be a hard sell for the most part, with small audience appeal, but could work in neutral territory and be as popular as any of the smaller promotions. Dave figures Baba wouldn’t be interested, and Inoki might be but would have to be approached by a US station. Dave’s still trying to figure out how AJW wound up with tv in the US.
  • [NJPW] Bam Bam and Inoki sold out Sumo Hall. IT’s the first time in recent memory a rookie has main evented Sumo Hall, let alone a rookie American. They did an interference spot with Bam Bam’s manager saving him from submitting to Inoki’s octopus hold, then Bam Bam stood tall at the end. There will be a rematch in April.
  • Joshi update on attendance: AJW is drawing 1500-3000 most nights, while JWP just hit a high point so far of 1900 (they had a Jackie Sato and Harley Saito vs. Shinobu Kandori and Nancy Kumi tag match for that show).

2019.10.27 02:50 Dracola112 The Takers

“I know it’s probably, uh, unhealthy. To dwell, I guess. But I can’t stop thinking about Millie’s final day, before...”
The man sitting across from me cleared his throat, loud and pointed, struggling to hide the emotion creeping into his voice. I smiled and nodded in that way that therapists are supposed to: supportive and non-threatening but also gently prodding.
“It’s not unhealthy at all, Rick,” chirped the woman sitting adjacent to him. She rested a bony hand on his knee. Rick stiffened at that. “It’s good to process. It’s why we’re here.”
“Tana’s right,” I said. “I’d encourage you to tell us more about that day. Some people like to keep these experiences to themselves, but most of the people I’ve listened to, people who’ve shared their stories with their group, would later say that they’re glad they did.”
“What do you mean, ‘final day?’” Tana piped back in. “The last day before you knew your wife was chosen, or the last day before she was-”
“Tana. Not appropriate,” I chided. Tana was a regular, she’d attended at least two meetings a month for the last half-decade. It was nice to have a fixture, here, a familiar face to anchor me in the revolving cast of the traumatised and mourning, but she could be tactless, nosey. “You know how I feel about the word ‘chosen.’”
“Her last day before we knew. For sure that is. That she was going to get...” Rick seemed to grapple with himself for a moment. His tired, deep-set eyes fixed on his fidgeting hands for a few moments before he steeled himself. “I, uh- Are you sure I should? It’s a lot.”
“Everyone here’s been through it, Rick. You’re not alone.”
“Guess you’re right.” Rick took a steadying breath, his eyes still downcast. “Yeah, I remember that day so well, mostly because it was the first really good one we’d had in a while. Millie and me, we’d been fighting a lot. And always about the stupidest things, never anything big. Like, I think this last fight, it was all about whether our goddamn car needed new windshield wipers. We hadn’t talked in something like three days over that one. God, I wasted so much time being mad at her. For no reason.”
The man sitting next to me, a newer member who’d lost his husband a little over a year ago, made a sympathetic noise. “Isn’t that just the worst? Like, so often I want to go back and slap some sense into myself, tell past Greg to just drop it, you know?”
Rick nodded. “Exactly. It wasn’t worth it.”
“But you and your wife, you were having a good day?” I said, gently nudging the conversation back on track.
“Mm-hmm. Real good. It was the Fourth, we went to a barbecue. She was in a good mood, and I got just drunk enough to join her in it. We watched fireworks, which, you know, always reminded her of when we just got married, when we went to Disney. We parked our car in the driveway and talked for an hour that night. First time we’d done that in, I don’t know, a decade.”
“But then you walk into the house,” Tana says, with the tone of someone who’d heard a variation of this story nearly as many times as I had.
Rick smiled sardonically, nodded. “Yep.”
“Door was unlocked,” Tana continued.
“Hinge was broken. Forced open. At first, I thought, you know, robbers. I’d heard stories, like everyone, about Takers, how they usually like to, I guess, make themselves known, so I knew about that. Hell, one of my old high school buddies had lost a sister in law to one three years before this. But it wasn’t… They weren’t the first thing on my mind.”
Greg sniffed. “I remember thinking that, when it happened to me- to Geoff. And then, you know, you inevitably find out you were wrong, and you get put in that ridiculous-ass position of wishing it had been robbers.”
“Millie wanted to drive somewhere safe and call the cops, let them sweep the house first. Robbers could still be inside, you know. But I… I dunno, I had this gut feeling. So I went in myself, and, you know, living room looks fine. Hallway’s fine. Big TV, computer, they’re untouched.”
“And then you get to the bedroom,” Tana says. “What’d they leave you?”
Rick’s face went a fraction of a shade greener. “Ripped-off bird’s wing. Put right on my wife’s pillow, like one of those, those mints at a hotel.”
Tana nodded sagely. “They like the dead animal routine. They left my brother six squirrels, in a ring around his dresser. All of them headless, but there was no blood, weirdly enough. Was there blood with yours?”
“I, uh. I don’t really-”
“I’m glad I didn’t get that,” Greg said. “With Geoff, they’d just smeared all the photos we had of him with that, you know, that chalky substance they make.”
“White footsteps, all over the carpet,” the man sitting nearest me muttered. He was brand new, had shown up to the meeting ten minutes late and wordlessly taken a seat. He was the only attendee that hadn’t spoken yet today, and I made a mental note to come back to him later, see if I might get him to introduce himself.
“That’s the most common one they do,” Tana began. “There’s this Taker analysis project they’re working on at Yale, and they’ve found a correlation between the dead animal ‘omen’ and cases in which the victim would go on to be attacked two to three days aferward, whereas the chalk-”
“Tana,” I warned, my voice taking on a hint of an edge. Mercifully, she swallowed her lecture, one I’d heard her give variations of maybe a half-dozen times this year alone. “Now’s not the time. Rick, if you want to keep sharing-”
“Sure thing, I do. I just… Give me a second.”
“Take all the time you need.”
Rick took a steadying breath. A flicker of some harder emotion--frustration, maybe, or regret--played at his face before it settled back into queasy discomfort. “Everyone says that there’s nothing you can do at that point. It’s the first thing everyone knows about Takers, that once they’ve got their sights on you, it’s over, there’s no point in even… But I couldn’t just sit there. It’s stupid, I know-”
“It’s not,” I said. “Nearly everyone responds the same way you did. It’s human nature to want to fight back, even if there’s no hope. It’s admirable, in my opinion.”
“Well, maybe. I wanna make something clear, here, though. I wasn’t being brave.” Rick spat that last word out like it was an insult. His gaze finally left the floor, and he scanned the room, flitting from face to face, his jaw set. “I do n’t wanna hear about how brave I am, or was, because from the moment I saw that, what’d you call it, that omen? From that point on it was me, and my wife, and our friends feeling nothing but shit scared.”
Greg and the nameless new member nodded knowingly at this. Tana wrung her hands, wide eyes fixed intently on Rick, engrossed.
“Again, completely natural,” I said.
“I sent word out. We’re up in Ashville, don’t know if you’ve been, but it’s a small town, people know each other. A Taker, that’s huge news, that’d never happened before up there, so word spread fast. Millie, she was too distraught to make much of a decision about anything, and I wasn’t in great shape either. The stakeout, that was Hugh Lambert’s idea. He’s a neighbor of ours, bit of a gun nut.”
Tana leaned further in her seat, rapt. “You thought shooting it would work?”
“The hell’s that mean?” Rick growled, suddenly defensive. “What, were we supposed to put her out for the things on a platter? Leave her out at the curb for ‘em like Monday trash?”
“Tana,” I warned again. I briefly considered asking her to leave; she was being even sloppier than usual with the social cues. “If you could let Rick-”
“No, I get it, you’d feel impotent if you didn’t try something,” Tana said. “My brother, our dad’s a cop, so he locked himself in a maximum security jail, hoped that maybe the walls and locks would keep them out. It’s just, even the idea of trying to shoot one of them…” Tana shook her head, almost incredulous. When she spoke again her voice was soft, like she was speaking more to herself than anyone else. “How would you even hit one?”
“I had to do something,” Rick said. “So, you know, usually takes two to four days from getting that first sign for the thing to show up, that’s what most of the people on the internet said. We spent that first day driving down to her old house. Had a picnic. Saw a movie. Would’ve been a nice day if it weren’t for…”
“That was a great idea,” I said. “Many of the people who come in here say that their biggest regret was letting their panic keep them from savoring their last moments with a loved one.”
“Yeah. It was nice.” Rick’s face brightened as he said this, turned slightly nostalgic before souring again. “That night was horrible, though. Even though most of the sources we’d looked at said that nobody’d ever had a Taker come one night after the first sign, Millie was still scared out of her wits all night. It took me locking myself in the basement bathroom with her to get her to even try to get some sleep. Neither of us did, though. Then that second day rolled around and Hugh plus some of the neighbors started setting things up. Some of them thought it’d be better to take Millie somewhere more, I don’t know, secure, but she was set on staying at the house. So me and Hugh and some of the other guys started getting to barricading, and then that night we sat up in shifts with Millie, five of us at a time, me with my Magnum and the rest with these ten-gauges that Hugh lent us. I know that Takers aren’t supposed to make any noise, but I was jumping at everything that night, we all were. Neighbor’s dog barked once and I nearly shot my own foot.”
Greg chuckled politely, then turned sheepish when he realized that Rick hadn’t been trying to joke. Rick ignored him, set to chewing the inside of his cheek for nearly a full minute. It was silent for a while, other than the gentle gurgling of a nearby water cooler and the whine of the wind outside.
“Third night’s when it happened,” Rick finally said, his voice thin, strained. “Two twenty AM. I hadn’t slept a wink in days, and I was sort of in and out, you know. Head all heavy, eyes closing on their own. Millie, she was asleep. Maybe that was for the best.
“First sign that it was coming was Sasha, she’s another neighbor of ours, she was posted up outside the house. She started screaming at about two eighteen, yelling that she sees something in the trees, and all of a sudden everyone in the house is up but Millie. Never heard so many guns cock at once.”
The new guy scratched at his neck, hard and insistently enough to be faintly audible. I glanced over to see him peering out the conference room’s window, his eyes fixed on the thatch of trees that marked the edge of the building’s property outside. He’d gone pale, even moreso than he had been when he’d arrived. I considered asking Rick to pause, nearly put the session on hold to acknowledge the new face and ask him if he was comfortable hearing the rest of the story. But Rick was on a roll, and I didn’t know if I’d be able to get him talking again if I halted his momentum here.
“Sasha comes running in, shaking. I think she’d dropped her gun outside because she was empty handed. Kept saying the same thing over and over to herself, something about eyes, big eyes. That’s how I knew she’d seen it, that it wasn’t a false alarm or anything. “We waited another two or so minutes, and Millie, thank God, she stayed asleep. Those two minutes were,” Rick trailed off. Tears were welling in his red-rimmed eyes. “Those were the worst part. Have you ever listened so hard that it hurt?”
Rick looked around for validation. Greg nodded, also a good shade paler, grimacing sympathetically. Tana remained motionless, eyes glinting with unabashed interest. She was digging one hand into her forearm, though, hard enough to dye her knuckles white. The new guy was still scratching, still staring out the window.
“It was so quiet. Even when it broke the door down, even when Sasha started screaming and Hugh’s boys started shooting, it was like everything was...” Rick waved a limp hand by his ear, struggling with his wording. “Muffled, maybe. Too soft.”
“Could you hear footsteps?” Tana asked. “Some people report that, when it gets really close, they can hear its footsteps.”
“All I heard was shots through the door, and people yelling. I was in the room with Millie, so I couldn’t see what happened, but I heard later that nobody could tell if they were hitting it or not. My brother-in-law, Ray, I heard he even put... Ray’s a brave guy,” Rick chuckled wetly, tears already spilling out onto his pocked face. “Stupid, but brave. I heard he put himself between the thing and our door, and it just sort of... climbed over him.”
Greg shuddered. Someone in an adjoining room slammed a door, and the new guy jumped in his seat.
“Then before I knew what was happening our bedroom door was off its hinges and the thing was inside and I was yelling too, and my six shots were gone in a second, and the thing didn’t even flinch, didn’t even take its fucking horrible baby eyes off my wife, and it just tiptoed forward and scooped her up, picked her up by the back of her neck like, like cats do with their kids, and Millie woke up just in time to, to look at me and scream, but, but maybe because it was biting her neck, or maybe because it was because of that muffling thing it was doing, no noise came out when she screamed, just her mouth opening, and I screamed too, loud, and then it was out the window with her and Millie was gone forever.”
Rick gulped in a breath, his face red with exertion, and, after a shuddering sigh, broke into sobs. Greg leaned over and started to rub Rick’s shoulder, and Tana settled back in her chair.
“Rick,” I said, trying to exude gentle support. “Thank you so much for sharing.”
Rick’s sobbing hitched, and I gave him some time to collect himself before continuing.
“I know you don’t like to be called brave, but what you just did takes real courage. You’ve been through something intensely traumatic, and externalizing trauma is a famously tall order for anyone. Now that you’ve made this first step toward healing, or at least something resembling healing, I think you’ll find that-”
“Did it hurt her?”
All heads but Rick’s turned toward the new member. His voice was higher than I’d expected it to be, more strained. There was a manic look to him, one that I was surprised I hadn’t picked up on before.
“What?” Greg asked.
“When that Taker killed your wife,” the new guy continued, his words carefully enunciated. “Did it seem like she was in pain?”
Rick unburied his head from his hands and stared, incredulous. I turned, already preparing the kind of stern reprimand I usually reserved for Tana.
“Also,” the new member continued. “Did you see where it took her? Did you look out the window after? Were there footprints? Was there blood?”
“Sir,” I intoned. “These questions are not productive. I understand the need for context, after losing a loved one many of us find ourselves desperate for answers, but to ask a recent victim such questions is-”
“Who did you lose?” The man’s gaze turned to me, and suddenly there was something accusatory in his tone.
A dozen responses cycled through my head before I settled on a broad approach. “I’m sorry, I never got your name.”
“I’m Mitch,” he said. “Answer my question. Who’d you lose? What makes you qualified?”
“I’d say my Master’s in Counseling Psychology does. And, no, for the record, I’ve never personally lost a loved one. Not to a Taker.”
Mitch scoffed. “Have you ever even seen one? Lady, do you have the slightest, the tiniest clue about how terrifying they are? Or are you just pretending, just playing like you know what you’re talking about so you can bring home your counseling fees or whatever?”
“I’ve seen one,” I said, trying to keep my tone matter-of-fact.
“Yeah? When?”
“I was eight, so it was probably about a decade after they’d first started to show up.” I shrugged at the looks I got from Tana and Greg. “Yeah, I’m that old. My dad had taken me and my brother to a baseball game one night, and we were driving back on this old, dark road, and we nearly hit one.”
I’d told this story dozens of times before, but even now I could feel my blood chilling a bit at the recollection, even if I almost definitely managed to hide it. “It was crossing the street in front of our car, heading in the direction of town.”
“Yeah?” Mitch shot a fresh glance at the window before swiveling back to me. “What’d it look like?”
“I couldn’t see much. It was dark.” Mitch snorted at this, and despite my best efforts at professionalism that nettled me, so I continued. “It had long hair. Down to its waist, but only on its head, which was big and lumpy. It was short, maybe a little taller than I was at the time. It walked on its tiptoes, with big, careful steps, like how a cartoon character walks when it’s being sneaky.”
“What were its eyes like?”
“It never looked at us. Walked past us like we weren’t there. It ruined what was supposed to be a happy day with my dad and gave me nightmares for years.” I stared back into Mitch’s eyes, trying to project as much cool authority as I could. “Why are you so concerned with my experience? Why don’t you tell us about yours?”
Mitch cracked a fragile smile. “Oh, I haven’t had mine yet.”
Even out of the corner of my eye, I could see Greg stiffen. Tana leaned back in her seat, hands clasped even tighter than they had been before. Mitch glanced back at the window and my heart quickened as I started to put two and two together.
“Yet?” Greg asked, confrontational. “‘Yet?’ The hell does- What do you mean, ‘yet?’”
“All of you, or, I guess, all the people you’ve lost, had at least someone to go through it all with,” Mitch said. “Family or friends. Sisters and neighbors and husbands. Well, I don’t.”
Rick glanced around the room, his red-rimmed eyes finding mine, looking to me for authority. “You don’t, you can’t mean-”
Mitch gestured widely. “All my people left. Parents are gone, friends forgot me years ago. I’m nobody. So I when I came home yesterday, when I saw the steps on my carpet and the giant-ass handprints on my bedroom window, I decided I couldn’t do the rest alone. So I Googled for support groups, found this one kind of at the last second, drove forty miles over, and now I’m here.”
Greg stood from his chair, face growing paler by the minute. “Psycho. You’re a psycho.”
Tana’s voice was paper-thin. “When?”
“What?”
Her eyes snapped up to meet Mitch’s. “When did your omens show up?”
Mitch returned her gaze, his smile growing wider, more sardonic. “Four days ago. Almost to the hour. You seem well-read, you know that nobody ever lasts longer than four days.”
This was enough to jostle me out of the shock that I’d settled into, and I rose from my seat, trying to summon as much authority as I could muster. “If you’re telling the truth, then you’ve endangered everyone in this room-”
“Oh, bullshit, you know as well as anyone that the things ignore everyone who isn’t their target of the day or whatever. Right?” Mitch jabbed a finger at Rick, who seemed locked in his seat, eyes fixed on the middle distance. “If Takers liked collateral damage, Larry the Cable Guy here wouldn’t be breathing. Right? His neighbors-”
“It’s not a hard and fast rule,” Tana said. “There have been cases where-”
“No, no!” Mitch’s voice was suddenly loud, ragged. “No, those were unsubstantiated, I checked.”
“You never read about the Tulsa Air Force Base stakeout? Four people died-”
“No proof of that-”
“Incidents like that in Bern, in Islamabad. Fourteen people were killed in Laos, when-”
“Tana,” I said, still too startled to sound very stern. I found myself glancing out Mitch’s window, toward the treeline, looking for movement. “Mitch, based on all officially recognized evidence, you’d be right, but I’m not talking about physical danger, okay? These people are not mentally fit to be confronted with a Taker, not after what they’ve been through.”
“You’re goddamn right,” Greg growled, slipping his coat on. The sound of genuine fury in the man’s voice managed to trouble me more; Greg had never been the confrontational type. “Go to hell.”
Greg turned and stormed out. Rick watched him leave, then stiffly, robotically, came to his feet to follow him out. Mitch reached forward for him, his cracked grin softening into a look of desperation, and Rick recoiled.
“Come on,” Mitch said. “I get- I get that it’s hard, but I can’t be alone right now, you get that-”
“These might be the single least qualified people in the world to help you right now, Mitch,” I said. “You wouldn’t bring alcohol into an AA meeting, you wouldn’t crack rape jokes at a woman’s shelter, and I would’ve assumed that anyone, any person with a shred of self-consciousness, would know not to lead a Taker to the families of Taker victims.”
“I didn’t have any other choice!” Mitch screeched. Red was creeping into his face now, coloring the bags under his eyes a bruised, gangrenous purple. “Where else was I supposed to go?! I thought, I figured, you know, you all’d know how to help-”
Rick shuffled wordlessly out the door, and Tana finally stood from her own seat. She seemed torn, her torso was angled toward the exit, but her eyes were locked on Mitch’s feet. Her mouth twitched, like she was trying to formulate a sentence. Mitch stepped toward her, beseeching.
“Come on, you’ve gotta- Right, you’re fascinated with the things, I can tell. What better research than to see one again? To watch what it does close up? Please?”
Tana’s mouth stopped moving and she blinked, hard, before turning away. Mitch stumbled toward her, one hand clapping onto her shoulder.
“Mitch, if you don’t let her-” I began.
“Come on, please, I can’t be alone right now.”
With a quiet yelp, Tana broke free of his grip and hurried out the exit. Mitch wheeled toward me, and I could see that he was crying.
Somewhere outside, a flock of birds took flight, startled en masse from the treeline.
“Please, God, please, you can at least stay! Right?! You haven’t lost anyone, you don’t have any- Any trauma. Right? Right?!”
Mitch grabbed me by my sweater, his hands gouging into the fabric, clutching at it like a security blanket. He pulled me close enough that I could smell the grease in his hair, could see the flecks of perspiration on his face.
“I- I don’t think-” My eyes kept finding the window, kept snapping to the flickering of shadows cast by the sun setting outside. I could hear my heart hammering in my ears.
“Stay with me,” Mitch pleaded. He wasn’t yelling anymore, which was somehow worse. “I’d give you money if I had any left. Anything. Please. Just don’t let it take me alone.”
I considered it. The humanitarian in me, the part of my personality that had always gravitated toward broken people, the part that took great professional and personal joy in the mending of a fractured spirit, pushed me to say yes. The man was terrified, and I knew deep down that so much of that terror would be eased by the presence of another person, even a stranger. The man knew he was going to die, had probably come to terms with that long before any gangly, claw-fingered homunculus had first left its mark in his home, but he couldn’t handle dying alone. That was obvious.
But then I remembered the night after the baseball game. The thing I saw. Its long, tangled hair. Its hydrocephalic head, its knobby hands, its perverse, cartoonish parody of a gait. How it walked in a straight line, without paying any heed to the underbrush or the darkness or the gaze of a terrified child staring at it from behind the tinted windows of her dad’s SUV.
And then I saw a shape approach the window, loping, almost prancing across the grass outside, heading directly towards us.
And I knew I wouldn’t be able to do it.
Mitch cursed me as I broke from his grip, screamed at me as I made my paltry excuses and made for the door. The last thing I could make out from him, before his words devolved into the baying gibberish of a doomed man, was:
“I hope you pay for this! I hope one day you get to learn what it’s like!”
I heard the window, almost definitely the same one Mitch had spent all of today fixating on, shatter just as I headed out into the hall. I broke into a sprint, hands flying to my ears to block the sound of Mitch’s fresh screams, and made for the parking lot, where I tumbled into my car and tore out into the road as fast as I could.
Those words were all I could think of on my drive home, a commute I spent jumping at shadows on the side of the road. I nearly crashed my car at the shock of a night-time jogger crossing the street ahead of me along the way.
Those words echoed through my dreams for weeks. They were old dreams, reruns of nightmares that had robbed me of hundreds of hours of sleep from the ages of eight to twelve, nightmares that had developed into my first ever encounters with therapists, nightmares that had inadvertently dictated the course of my career.
But I compartmentalized, and I adapted, and I moved past it. I changed the location of my meetings, so as to avoid the sight of that window. I found a new group of patients, a group that was quickly re-joined by Tana and, occasionally, Rick, though neither of them ever elected to bring the events of that night up again. I used my years of schooling and training to identify my trauma, to slice it into bite-sized pieces and pack those pieces away in as healthy a manner as I could manage. I leaned on the comfort of the statistics I usually used to calm frantic patients, people who were worried about being Taken themselves: Takers only kill around ten thousand people a year, worldwide. The average person’s more likely to get killed by a faulty furnace or a fall in the shower or a drunk driver than a Taker. Most people go their whole lives without seeing one. Years passed, and I managed to stow Mitch and his curse in the back of my mind.
Then one night, I returned home late from a conference, a three-day event that had kept me in a hotel downtown for the entirety of a long weekend, to find my front door unlocked. No, not unlocked, broken in, the deadbolt snapped cleanly in half and the door leaning useless against its frame.
I lived alone. I’d installed a cheap security camera on my porch, mostly as a deterrent to burglars. I knew, from the sight of the door and the light dusting of chalky white powder on its handle, exactly what had happened, but the analytical part of me needed specifics. And that’s why, even as my heart leapt to my throat and tears began to well in my eyes and Mitch’s voice began to ring in my ears, fresh and loud as if it had never left, I rushed to retrieve my camera without stepping foot inside my home. I pried the SD card from the camera’s base and ran, sprinted with it in hand, to my car, where my laptop was stowed. I popped the card in and scrolled through the feed to the single point labeled “disturbance,” by the camera’s software. I saw a short, black, shambling figure in the thumbnail, and I snapped the laptop shut.
I sat there in my car, sobbing, for an hour. A wasted, stupid, foolish hour, before a suspicion began to pull at my gut, acrid and cloying. I forced myself to re-open the laptop, to pull the camera feed back up, and to glance at the date and time tied to the disturbance.
The Taker had stepped onto my porch three days and twenty-two hours ago. I’d been at the conference. I hadn’t known.
Suddenly the rustling of the trees flanking the road seemed to quiet, almost as if it had been muffled.
I punched my car into drive and bolted, hoping against hope, against all I knew about how Takers operated, about how little they cared for things like distance or speed or flimsy car windshields. I peeled out onto the road, Mitch’s voice booming in my ears.
“I hope one day you get to learn what it’s like.”
My headlights catch a figure crossing the street, dozens of yards ahead. This time, its eyes are fixed on mine. This time, I’m all it sees.
And I’m alone.

2019.07.19 17:18 etherclast Why r/PartBlackMixedRace Tragically Had To Be Created.

In the world and specifically within the United States of America, there is generally a subconscious anti-Black sentiment, based solely upon collective Eurocentric views towards Blacks in a spectrum ranging from near-mythological fictional scientific racialism designed to dehumanize, to fallacious stereotypes of Black character, to assumption of one's (ill) intent and even caricatures of their phenotypical features to insinuate that something is wrong and unnatural about them, stemming from the past three centuries of brutality and dominance when European conquering was at its highest. The victors truly do write the narrative and this conquering allowed them to shape the world, prevent resistance and revolt to their rule, keep that sweet capitalist greed-based revenue from cotton and other crops coming and influence schools of anti-Black political thought throughout the world for centuries to come. Vae victis, vae victis.
The actions of Whites during this era are not wrong or historical cheap shots because they were White and their victims were Black. Conquest is a part of nature. There is no anti-White agenda to paint their actions as exclusively heinous for owning slaves. Africans and Arabs owned slaves. During the Barbary slave trade, Arabic pirates took European slaves and made castrated eunuchs of their men and raped the women many times over and bred with them. The actions of Whites during this era was not an exclusive wrong because "humanity is a long history of people conquering others and they merely were better at it."
The actions of Whites and specifically 1600s - 1800s American, Anglo-Saxon Protestant Whites were wrong because they associated the race and genetics of the people they conquered with the reason they lost and failed to resist the system engineered against them, during slavery, colonization and later apartheids. It constructed a hypothetical and unprovable narrative of inferiority that has far-reaching consequences, inspiring further discrimination, visible to this very day. And, the actions of Jewish cotton merchants were wrong, using a slave race to fatten their pockets in the American South. All Blacks and part-Blacks in America are permanently stigmatized as second class citizens. No matter what.
The Whites are completely nonchalant, cold and aloof to the damage they have created as a people. They respond to the aftermath of this damage their ancestors and grandparents brought with overt condemnation, citing some sort of genetic and racial inadequacy as to the motivating factor as to why their victims are acting less than exemplary.
In actuality, the current state of American Blacks is like that of an abused child who lashes out after finally having enough and breaking down and the state of American Whites, for the most part, like that of an abusive parent with narcissistic personality disorder who can do no wrong, surprised their child is acting out in tantrums, is completely dysfunctional and unstable and they are conceited enough to feel offended they have to even witness such a tantrum when they are the sole inspiration and architects of the situation they find themselves faced with, in the present day.
The dehumanization of Blacks during this era of White supremacy (and tactical advantage due to controlling the narrative) was seen as ordained by God and part of the natural order. In actuality, it was just a mere narrative used to justify Black oppression because they needed a workforce who couldn't run away like the Irish indentured bondservants, a workforce that was resistant to European diseases unlike the Amerindians whom they first attempted to enslave, that was uneducated, ignorant, disenfranchised and whom the general population of Whites could not empathize with and pity enough to speak out against the practice of chattel enslavement of African-descendant persons by the regimes that led them.
All of the rape, murder, torture, bloodshed, propaganda, rhetoric, lies and racial terrorism for spices, tobacco, sugar cane, cotton and a cheap workforce that would pay for itself in no time and it wound us costing everything than mere servitude. Racial bigotry towards persons of African descent and African chattel enslavement created a positive feedback loop, reinforcing one another, rationalizing atrocities and justifying lies. This is why it is wrong and why American whites were criticized for it.
The Whites of yesteryear beat this idea into the people they owned. The Whites after them propagated it. The Whites of today turn to it and believe it when their bike gets stolen or they get cucked by a football player. One has to wonder, even to this day, how severe this damage truly is and the effect it still has on Blacks today. It is a low blow that does damage to this very day to the people who descended from their slaves. America's chattel slavery and the general European conquest of Africa in general associated "Black" with the slave, ordained to be below the God-preferred Whites, at all times, closer to monkeys and animals than human and unworthy of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness they wanted for their own kind. And because of Hypodescent, they see us as Black. 100%. All day. So one must ask, what is all this still doing to us as a people?
To this very day, it is likely the sole reason or one of many reasons cops are more likely to shoot Blacks and part-Blacks first and foremost, before dialogue. Well, that and the high violent crime rates. If that is not seemingly the case by now, mixed people like Tony Robinson Jr., Jason Washington and Jeremy Lake would still be alive, as well as Sandra Bland, Freddie Gray and Eric Garner. Darsell Obregon would have never had the police called on her for taking cover during the rain, neither would the two men in the Starbucks. With all this anti-Black and anti-Part Black "negrophobia," hatred and resentment, could this even be a subconscious reason why Blacks hate each other more than anyone can hate anyone and possibly why Black-on-Black homicide is so severe? Could apathy and self-loathing of their Blackness be a contributing factor to why Blacks kill each other, don't like each other, don't trust each other and can not work together? Could this be why we hybrids have no culture or feel no association to one another? Who knows? Even if it is, no one cares enough to do anything.
During this era, and occurring only in the United States Of America, those who were part-Black mixed-race people were "Black enough" to be sold as slaves due to the concept of Hypodescent, also known as the "One Drop Rule." Not only was this view sociological but for a significant time in American history, it was codified into law. What is Hypodescent exactly? Hypodescent, also known as the "One Drop" view, is a sociological viewpoint that says those who have Black DNA are belonging to the Black race and are neither mixed-race nor belonging to any other race. They are just black. Just like that. This amoral sociological view is how many who were mixed-race children of the plantation were kept, sold, raped, tortured and murdered as slaves, due to the systemic oppression of our kind, the denial of their mixed-race identity and the rejections from the scores of the White slave masters who were their immediate and direct blood relatives in many cases. In many cases, some of these mixed-race slaves were virtually White from the strength of their European admixture. To this very day, this viewpoint still exists and only in the United States Of America, the sole nation of its birth and practice, does Hypodescent thrive, in the 21st century.
Be you a complainant on a police report or a patient in the ER or an applicant for a job, you will be classified as Black. People will judge you for your black admixture and discriminate against you. Meanwhile, a Hapa, Castizo, or any other mixed-race person who has no Black admixture will always be seen by White Americans as mixed-race. Hypodescent was beaten and ingrained into Black slaves so much that Blacks today even propagate Hypodescent toward mixed-race people who are part-Black. What the end result from all of this ultimately equates to is a mixed-race child in America, who is bullied by both Black kids and White kids, is told he/she is Black regularly, attacking truth and their objectively factual identity, doesn't know their father because he either skipped out due to their mother being Black and them only wanting sex with a "sister" or skipped out due to being a thug who didn't have time for kids and left them with a White mother who was disowned by her parents and can not relate to the struggles of her child, let alone maintain their hair properly. This child feels unwanted and winds up on the news for some workplace/school shooting after being demoralized with life, antisocial and depressed, suicidal and then dead or recklessly degenerate and in jail in an attempt to fit in with the hood culture and prove how "gangsta" and Black they are, due to the cultivation of their own culture being suppressed by Whites who would dare to go so far as to deny the realities of their genetics being indicative of their being mixed-race because of some crackpot 1800s racial caste system theory to prevent hybrid slaves from running and to line their pockets with the birth of more slaves.
If you are part-Black and mixed-race, try telling someone White in America that. Good luck. You'll likely be seen as "high yellow" or "light-skinned." Blacks have had it so programmed into them from the era of our people's collective enslavement by Jewish cotton merchants and White Anglo-Saxon Protestants that from generation to generation as if encoded in the DNA via genetic memories, they too will call you "high yellow," or "light-skinned" with "good hair" and go the extra mile by throwing in "halfbreed" or "you think you better than us," just for claiming more than one race in your ethnic identity which is an objective fact of your biology as a racial composite of two or more races. Meanwhile, mixed people born to non-Black "model minority" immigrants and Whites get to skate right past all that.
Being part-Black make cops think you are more likely to have a criminal record or a weapon on your person. Being part-Black makes society think you are stupid or have ill intentions. Being part-Black makes the world think you will rob them or rape them or kill them. Do you know why? Because being Black makes people think about these things. And, if you think that people in an anti-hybrid/anti-Black nation like the U.S.A. will not do part-Black mixed people this way when they have already done so much damage to our kind and do Blacks this way, you are lying, delusional, coping or purely refusing to see to see the obvious issue.
Part-Black mixed-race people are getting the short end of the stick in the United States. Our voices are silenced yet many of us are screaming loudly and as time passes on many more of us will resist and scream. We are denied an identity and told that since we are part-Black, we can not be mixed. If someone can be half-White and not White, someone can be part Black and not Black. When you mix blue and yellow or green and red, you get a result that is neither blue, yellow, green or red. Hypodescent is wrong. It is paper genocide. You are saying an entire people do not and can not exist and then you, the American, are shocked when you wind up with a Christopher Sean Harper-Mercer on the news who could not take it anymore. We have allowed this and then fallen for American indoctrination until we ourselves believe these lies because we are ignorant to the reality of alternatives to these conditions we are forced to endure. No one is running up to Mestizos and calling them Indians. No one is running up to Hapas and calling them Asian, yet they approach Blasians, Mulattoes, and Quadroons at breakneck speeds, telling them they can't be mixed when these people are biased against us and not even genetically like us, therefore rendering them incapable and disqualifying them from telling us what we are and what we are not, ethnically speaking.
All the time, Blacks join the causes of others. If there is anti-gay, misgendering or anti-Hispanic sentiments from Americans, anti-global warming sentiments from Americans or anything about the rich elites robbing the plebeians, the Blacks run into it headfirst to support someone else during their plight. Even in the cases of anti-Zionism or anti-Judaism, even though Jews were a majority of the cotton merchants who dealt in human cargo and owned our kind like animals. We are also guilty of this practice ourselves, forsaking our interests to go shout for someone else's justice and peace and it gets us nowhere.
Best of all, to add lemon juice and salt to open wounds, no one reciprocates. In a place like mixedrace, people will allege to have positive intentions to come together and to revel in the joys of being mixed but this couldn't be further from the truth. A place like this purports camaraderie, fraternity, unity, and shared pride in being mixed-race. Yet, why is it, it reads off like a support group for discrimination and every five minutes, some poor mulatto or Blasian is talking about how they were mislabeled by someone, how no one accepts them, how they feel no one understands them, how depressed they are or how their grandparents don't interact with them.
There is a disconnect in these types of communities between those mixed with Black and those not mixed with Black. Those mixed with Black will be more likely to be shot by the police. Those mixed with Black will be more likely pre-judged, based on their phenotype. Those mixed with Black will likely see their partner disowned by their parents for dating them. Those mixed with Black will always be seen as second-class citizens or less than mankind. Those mixed with Black will always be seen as irate, entitled, lazy and with a chip on their shoulder. And those who are mixed-race in America and not mixed with Black will not. We will always have to prove ourselves in America or explain ourselves or justify ourselves. And, that is if we do not get shot to death and are fortunate enough to actually have the opportunity to be alive to speak for ourselves because many of our brethren have been killed. Jeremy Lake will never be able to make a case as to why he should live. He was murdered by ex-Tulsa PD officer Shannon Kepler for dating his adopted daughter, Lisa. Unlike Trayvon Martin getting suspended or Michael Brown strong-arming convenience store owners, Lake worked in homeless shelters, trying to help people. Jason Washington was a Navy veteran just trying to re-holster a dislodged firearm after he was knocked down in a brawl started by his White friend in that Portland bar. It still never stopped officers Dewey and McKenzie from doing full magdumps into Mr. Washington, center mass, and turning three girls into three girls without a father. To European Americans, we will never be seen as real Americans, nor will our voices be heard in this country and nor will we be seen as a mixed race group.
In 1988, this nation could have gotten biracial and multiracial categories added to forms in every field. The Whites resisted and the Blacks feared political fragmentation and power loss. To hell with what we wanted even though there are five million of us in the United States and fifty-five million globally. If these other mixed-race people with no Black admixture care so much for the camaraderie of mixed-race people, why don't all the part-Black mixed-race people stage a protest about this raw deal we are getting (only part-Black mixed people face Hypodescent in America) and all the various non-Black admixed mixed-race people can show up and stand in solidarity with us so our rights can be respected? Because they aren't part-Black and it isn't their problem so they don't care. As long as they aren't like us, they will never face the treatment we do. And, as long as they do not face what we face, it will never be their problem, nor will they be motivated to care. We have to, as a people, grow a spine and speak for ourselves because no one else will. If not you, who? If not now, when? Never? No one speaks for or defends our identity but us. We are so quick to embrace others that we neglect ourselves, just to virtue signal. That is why a separate board on a progressive forum like Reddit had to be created. Typical.

2019.05.25 03:42 irishcedar GDT: Kelly Cup Finals Game 1: Toledo Walleye @ Growlers May 25 5:30PM EST (Watch Live Stream)

Watch: Will post live stream below (I think all games will be streamed live -- even road games)
Listen: Mixlr NLGrowlers
(Note: I will post each GDT early when I can this week, but will not be able to watch the games live myself as I will be travelling overseas. I will watch the recordings late at night when I can).
It is Game 1 of the Kelly Cup Finals! This is going to be a great series of hockey between the two-best teams in the ECHL, and the two-best team logos, in my opinion. Like Newfoundland, Toledo plays a more modern style of hockey; I expect to see a lot more speed and skating in comparison to earlier series. The Walleye were the #5 team in the league in the regular season, but were successful in defeating the #1 Cincinnati Cyclones in 5 games. They were 8th in Goals for, and 11th in Goals against in comparison to the Growlers’ rank of 3rd and 5th respectively. However, in the playoffs, the Walleye lead the league in both goals for, and against. They finished with 300 more regular season PIMs than the Growlers, but I don’t expect Toledo to play an overly physical style. Ignoring the fact that the Growlers are actually bigger than the Walleye, the reason why I do not expect Toledo to roughen-up the series is because if Brampton, Manchester and Florida taught anything…it won’t work. Manchester’s regular season style of play mirrored the Growlers most closely, but even they abandoned their game to drag the Growlers into a street fight. Advice to Toledo coach Dan Watson: Don’t fall into that trap. You will lose.
I think this weekend’s play should be wide open, if for any other reason than bringing the body takes a ton of energy. Toledo should be dead-tired, and banged-up. They are being forced to play back-to-back games in St. Johns after winning game 7 in Tulsa Oklahoma on Wednesday following a 2-2-1-1-1 series between 2 cities 1,400km apart. Now they’ve travelled 5,000km and 2 ½ time zones to get to The Rock. There could be worse strategies for them than playing a higher-risk transition game and force their goaltender to keep them in it. Pat Nagle is their 31-year-old career ECHLer backstop, but he is playing the best hockey of his life with a playoff 1.79GAA and .940SV%. If he could steal 1 game this weekend it would be a significant success.
Will this series re-open up an opportunity for SDA? The line-up is more skilled with both SDA and Marcus Power in it; I am not sure whether they were benched, or injured, but with a week-off and a new opponent, maybe both can make it back into the line-up. SDA would be playing against Peterbrough Pete teammate and 2017 Detroit 3rd round draft pick Zach Gallant. Toledo is Detroit’s ECHL affiliate. Detroit/Grand Rapids have not provided the Walleye nearly the same assistance as has Toronto to the Growlers (Detroit under Holland was just starting to get more Dubas-like in some of his farm decisions), but the assistance that has been provided has been productive. Toledo’s playoff scoring has been balanced with 12 players with 9 or more points. 3 of those 12 are on NHL deals, 2 on AHL deals and the remaining 7 on ECHL deals. It is not as “premium” as the Growler line-up, but certainly more premium than Toledo’s Conference opponent Tulsa, whose roster was quite the Motley Crew.
Toledo is older and more experienced than Newfoundland with 1,600 more professional games under their belt, and that is to their advantage because Toledo is a team built around a few core players who have been with the organization a number of years. They also have a number of players who have won the Kelly Cup multiple times with other teams. These guys are hungry; Toledo has been a consistent playoff contender, but this is the first time in their 10-year history to make it to the Finals, and this year’s roster was constructed specifically for this run.
It looks like Mile One will be a full house Saturday night. How happy must Growlers management be? Not only do they have home ice advantage in the Finals, but they also maxed-out their Conference Finals home games by winning in 5 -- and did not have to incur the costs of another trip to Florida for games 6 and 7. They have drawn an extra 37,736 (and counting) in attendance these playoffs. If this series goes to Game 7, they could expect potentially as many as another 24,000. I even expect a good number of Toledo fans will make the flight to the Rock and be in attendance. Toledo is also one of the very best minor league hockey markets in North America averaging 7,783 fans per game. Compare that to St. Johns who entire Mile One hockey capacity is only 6,300. Toledoans are great hockey fans.
With 7 days off, advance scouting by the Growlers and Toronto scouting department, and a major home ice advantage – am I predicting a Growlers sweep? I don’t think so. The Toledo Walleye are a very good team, highly motivated, the best goaltending in the playoffs to date, and rabid fans in a noisy home stadium. I am predicting the Growlers in 6, but if the series goes to 7 I give the slight advantage to Toledo and their veteran core. It will be a battle between that core and the Newfoundland boys – Melindy, O’Brien, Power & Pardy. It is going to be great.
Thought of the day: Estephan has emerged these playoffs and been great - almost like how Moore emerged in last year’s AHL playoffs. The AHL playoffs last year launched Moore’s career at the next level. Is the same happening for Estephan and his future with the Marlies next year?
Enjoy the game.
EDIT POST Game
I have 20 minutes between connecting flights to say this: GROWLERS FUCKING WIN IN OVERTIME!!!
I caught the 2nd period where the Growlers were up 2-0, missed the 3rd in which the game tied up 3-3 and I missed the first 3 minutes of overtime. But I caught the last minute of overtime baby with Kestner's goal from Elynuik - both of whom got 3 points tonight.
Think the Walleye are tired now? Imagine tomorrow night. Let gooooooooooo!!!!

2019.04.05 06:00 madman1101 DUMB LAWS 2019, YOU GUYS HAVE SOME FUCKING STUPID RULES.

ALRIGHT FUCKERS, I’M RUNNING OUT OF IDEAS FOR TRASH TALK THREADS, SO I’M BREAKING DOWN DUMB LAWS IN YOUR CITIES/STATES. LET’S SEE WHAT DUMB SHIT YOU GUYS HAVE
OTTAWA VS NASHVILLE
OTTAWA, HOME OF THE CANADIAN CONTENT LAW. WELL, ALL OF CANADA REALLY, BUT 30 PERCENT OF ALL CONTENT ON RADIO STATIONS MUST BE “CANADIAN”. WHETHER IT’S COMPOSED, SANG, PRODUCED OR WRITTEN, 30 PERCENT OF ALL RADIO MUST BE CANADIAN. I DON’T LISTEN TO CANADIAN MUSIC BUT I CAN ONLY IMAGINE IT’S ABOUT MAPLE SYRUP AND JUSTIN BIEBER.
MEANWHILE IN NASHVILLE, NO PERSON MAY KEEP A CHEETAH AS A PET. YEAH I DON’T KNOW. IT’S TITLE 8.16.020. THIS LAW ALSO PERTAINS TO PUMAS AND OTHER WILDLIFE AS WELL. WHAT THE FUCK NASHVILLE, WAS THIS SUCH A PROBLEM YOU HAD TO MAKE A LAW FOR IT?
REAL MONARCHS VS RENO 1868
I DECIDED I DIDN’T WANT MORE CONTEXT BUT YOU CAN LOOK IT UP UNDER TITLE 5.54.310. IN SALT LAKE COUNTY, ALL AUCTIONS CAN’T BE ADVERTISED BY HIRING TROMBONE PLAYERS TO PLAY IN THE STREETS. I DON’T GET WHY THIS IS A LAW. I MEAN, WHO HIRES TROMBONERS TO PROMOTE AN AUCTION? FUCKIN MORMONS.
I GUESS THAT’S A MORE UNIQUE PROBLEM THAN RENO, WHO’S SECTION 8.12.045 STATES THAT YOU MAY NOT PLACE A BENCH IN THE MIDDLE OF ANY STREET. I GUESS THAT’S A GOOD IDEA BUT I’M NOT SURE WHY A LAW WAS NEEDED FOR THIS.
SWOPE PARK VS BETHLEHEM
I DON’T HAVE A LINK FOR MORE INFORMATION ON THIS ONE BUT APPARENTLY IN KANSAS CITY, INSTALLATION OF BATHTUBS WITH FOUR LEGS RESEMBLING ANIMAL PAWS IS PROHIBITED. WHAT THE HELL? THAT’S SOMETHING EVERYONE WANTS RIGHT? I DO NOW.
I COULDN’T FIND ANY DUMB LAWS FOR BETHLEHEM SPECIFICALLY, BUT I DID FIND ONE IN “BENSALEM” WHICH IS CLOSE ENOUGH, RIGHT? APPARENTLY PEOPLE CONVICTED OF FELONIES ARE NOT ABLE TO OPERATE A BINGO GAME. WHY THE DISCRIMINATION? I MEAN, SORRY SEC 105-13 OF ORDINANCE 89-0-7. BUT THAT’S SOME BULLSHIT.
LOUISVILLE CITY VS PITTSBURGH RIVERHOUNDS
IN KENTUCKY YOU AREN’T ALLOWED TO HUNT FROM A MOVING VEHICLE. THIS IS A MAJOR HIT TO THE STATE, LET ALONE THE CITY OF LOUISVILLE. NEARLY EVERYONE IN KENTUCKY OWNS A GUN, ALONGSIDE A CARTON OF CAMEL BLUES. IMAGINE HOW MANY KENTUCKY CHILDREN GO HUNGRY BECAUSE THEIR PARENTS CAN’T USE THE “DRIVE-THRU” FOR DINNER.
IN PENNSYLVANIA IT IS ILLEGAL TO SING WHILE IN THE SHOWER. YES, THE SAME PLACE WHERE WE ALL BECOME AMERICAN IDOLS, YOU’LL GET CARTED OFF TO JAIL FOR TRYING TO BE THE NEXT KELLY CLARKSON WHILE SCRUBBING YOUR FILTHY TAINT. THIS IS WHY MOST PEOPLE IN PITTSBURGH BATHE IN THE RIVER, AS THERE IS NO CLAUSE FOR BATHING IN PUBLIC. PUBLIC INDECENCY, HOWEVER IS ANOTHER ISSUE...
NCFC VS MEMPHIS
NORTH CAROLINA FC ENCOMPASSES ALL OF NORTH CAROLINA. THE BIGGEST ONE THAT STOOD OUT TO ME IS THAT YOU MUST PAY PROPERTY TAX ON YOUR DOG IN ROCKY MOUNT, NC. I MEAN, I LOVE MY DOG. HE’S FUCKIN AWESOME. BUT PROPERTY TAX ON A FAMILY MEMBER? DAMN. THAT’S SAVAGE.
THEN THERE’S MEMPHIS WHO HAS A FEW DUMB ONES, LIKE IT IS ILLEGAL FOR A WOMAN TO DRIVE A CAR UNLESS THERE’S A MAN EITHER RUNNING OR WALKING IN FRONT OF IT WAVING A RED FLAG TO WARN APPROACHING MOTORISTS AND PEDESTRIANS. THAT ONE IS AN INTERESTING AND I BELIEVE A LAW THAT IS NO LONGER ENFORCED. I MEAN, YEAH… YIKES. MEANWHILE, THERE’S A 10 DOLLAR PERMIT THAT IS REQUIRED IF YOU WANT TO PANHANDLE. THIS ISN’T SOME ANTIQUATED LAW EITHER. IT’S NOT EVEN 25 YEARS OLD. IT MAKES ME WONDER HOW OFTEN THIS ONE IS ENFORCED. IS PANHANDLING THAT BAD YOU NEED TO ENFORCE IT WITH PERMITS?
ATLUTD2 VS ST LOUIS
ATTENTION GIRAFFE OWNERS IN ATLANTA, PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE YOUR GIRAFFES TIED UP AGAINST TELEPHONE POLES OR PUBLIC STREET LAMPS. WE DO NOT KNOW HOW MANY TIMES WE’VE HAD TO TELL EVERYONE, SO THIS IS YOUR FINAL WARNING.
A CITY THAT WAS BASICALLY FOUNDED ON BEER, IN ST. LOUIS YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO SIT ON THE CURB OF A PUBLIC STREET AND DRINK BEER FROM A BUCKET. HOW ABOUT YOU DON’T TELL ME HOW TO LIVE MY LIFE AND I WON’T TELL YOU HOW TO LIVE YOURS.
TAMPA BAY VS HARTFORD
NEVER GO TO TAMPA. ACCORDING TO ORD. NO. 89-238, IT IS ILLEGAL TO EXPOSE UR BOOBIES WHILE TOPLESS DANCING. WELL, I AM NO EXPERT BUT TOPLESS DANCING KIND OF REQUIRES, YOU KNOW, NO TOPS. MY EYES ARE UP HERE, YOU PERV.
IN HARTFORD CT., IT IS ILLEGAL TO EDUCATE A DOG. I DO NOT KNOW WHAT THIS MEANS OR HOW IT APPLIES, BUT I AM SURE IT WAS TO PREVENT SOME SORT OF CANINE UPRISING AGAINST HUMANITY. SOUNDS LIKE SOME KIND OF SILLY RICK AND MORTY EPISODE. THEY MUST BE BORED IN CONNECTICUT.
BIRMINGHAM VS RED BULLS 2
ALABAMA IS FULL OF SOME GOOD ONES. BUT APPARENTLY NOT IN BIRMINGHAM. OH WELL, IN MOBILE, NOBODY CAN USE A “FUNK BALL” WITHIN CITY LIMITS. I HAD TO LOOK UP WHAT A FUNK BALL WAS. BECAUSE I DIDN’T KNOW. APPARENTLY IT’S THE SAME THING AS A STINK BOMB. BUT WHO THE FUCK CALLS THEM FUNK BALLS? THAT MIGHT BE THE DUMBEST PART ABOUT THIS LAW.
NEW YORK RED BULLS 2 DON’T EVEN PLAY IN NEW YORK. LETS GO TO NEW JERSEY. WHERE YOU CAN’T PUMP YOUR OWN GAS. OREGON WAS THE SAME WAY UNTIL RECENTLY. AND I DON’T GET IT. THERE WAS A HUGE UPROAR. YOU GUYS ARE FUCKING IDIOTS. I HAVE BEEN PUMPING GAS MY WHOLE LIFE, WELL, MY WHOLE DRIVING LIFE, AND A LITTLE LONGER AND I’VE NEVER DIED…. YET. SO, WHAT THE FUCK NEW JERSEY. THAT’S ONE WAY TO FORCE JOB CREATION I GUESS.
OKC VS PORTLAND
IN OKLAHOMA CITY, CODE 1970, § 21-2 MAKES IT TO WHERE THE MAYOR MAY NOT GO ON STRIKE AGAINST THE CITY. I MEAN IF I WERE MAYOR OF THAT CITY I WOULD GO ON STRIKE. NOTHING TO DO BUT EAT SONIC DRIVE-IN EVERY DAY AND STARE OUT INTO THE BEIGE HORIZON OF NOTHINGNESS.
PORTLAND IS TRULY A WEIRD CITY. ORD. NO 159474 MAKES IT “ILLEGAL TO CAUSE SOMEONE TO THINK THEIR PROPERTY MAY BE SUBJECTED TO “OFFENSIVE PHYSICAL CONTACT”” “DAVE KEPT LOOKING AT MY DAUGHTER’S BABY DOLL AS IF HE WERE GOING TO START FUCKING IT. I JUST GOT THAT VIBE FROM HIM.”
RGV VS NEW MEXICO
WE HAVE ALREADY BEEN OVER THE FACT THAT NOTHING EVER HAPPENS IN THE RGV AREA. SO WE’RE GOING TO DALLAS FOR THIS ONE WHERE IT IS ILLEGAL FOR SOME FUCKING REASON TO POSSESS REALISTIC DILDOS. DILDI? DILDOES? WHAT’S THE POINT? WHY DOES THE APPEARANCE OF SEX TOYS NEED LAWS ABOUT THEM?
I’M GOING TO GO AHEAD AND QUOTE THIS ONE, BECAUSE IF I JUST SAID IDIOTS WEREN’T ALLOWED TO VOTE IN NEW MEXICO, NOBODY WOULD BELIEVE ME.
“EVERY CITIZEN OF THE UNITED STATES, WHO IS OVER THE AGE OF TWENTY-ONE YEARS, AND HAS RESIDED IN NEW MEXICO TWELVE MONTHS, IN THE COUNTY NINETY DAYS, AND IN THE PRECINCT IN WHICH HE OFFERS TO VOTE THIRTY DAYS, NEXT PRECEDING THE ELECTION, EXCEPT IDIOTS, [...], SHALL BE QUALIFIED TO VOTE AT ALL ELECTIONS FOR PUBLIC OFFICERS.”
I MEAN, THAT’S A COOL LAW I GUESS, BUT ARE THERE THAT MANY IDIOTS IN NEW MEXICO THAT IT’S NOW ENFORCEABLE BY LAW? HOW DO YOU EVEN ENFORCE THAT?
SAN ANTONIO VS LAS VEGAS
THE FIRST AND ONLY LAW ON THIS LIST THAT WAS INFLUENCED BY OZZY OSBOURNE TO MY KNOWLEDGE. YOU CANNOT URINATE ON THE ALAMO. WHY FUCKING NOT? I SHOULD BE ABLE TO PISS WHEREVER I GODDAMN PLEASE. THIS IS AMERICA DAMMIT. THANKS OZZY, YOU RUINED EVERYTHING FOR ALL OF US.
LAS VEGAS IS IN A FUCKING DESERT. THAT MEANS THERE’S CAMELS. APPARENTLY THERE WAS SUCH A LARGE ISSUE OF PEOPLE TRAVERSING THE TERRAIN THAT IT’S ILLEGAL NOW TO DRIVE A CAMEL ON THE HIGHWAY. FIRST OFF, I DIDN’T REALIZE THAT ALL THE SPEED DEMONS WERE TURNING IN THEIR SPORTS CARS FOR CAMELS. I KINDA WANNA BREAK THIS LAW NOW THAT I KNOW IT EXISTS.
LA GALAXY 2 VS TULSA
IN HOLLYWOOD IT IS ILLEGAL TO DRIVE MORE THAN 2,000 SHEEP DOWN HOLLYWOOD BOULEVARD AT ONE TIME. EITHER SOMEONE IS MAKING A “BABE” SEQUEL OR THAT GUY IS IN FOR A LOOOOOONG NIGHT. (IN CASE YOU IDIOTS DIDN’T GET IT THAT WAS A SHEEP FUCKING REFERENCE.)
IN TULSA IT IS ILLEGAL TO OPEN A SODA WITHOUT A LICENSED ENGINEER PRESENT. FIRST LET’S GET OUT OF THE WAY WHO GIVES A FUCK WHETHER IT IS CALLED “POP” OR “SODA”, SOMEONE OBVIOUSLY COULDN’T GET THIS ONE RIGHT THE FIRST TIME AND NEEDED TO CALL IN A PROFESSIONAL.
OCSC VS COLORADO SPRINGS
APPARENTLY ORANGE COUNTY IS VERY GOOD ABOUT THEIR LAWS, MEANWHILE JUST OUTSIDE OF THE COUNTY IN RIVERSIDE IT IS ILLEGAL TO CARRY LUNCH DOWN THE STREET BETWEEN 11 AND 1 O’CLOCK. I DON’T GET IT. WHY CAN’T I CARRY MY LUNCH? I MEAN, IS IT HURTING ANYONE? WHAT IF I WANT TO JUST WALK AROUND CARRYING FOOD AT THAT TIME AND CALL IT…. DINNER? WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? IS IT STILL ILLEGAL? WHO KNOWS?
THERE IS A LAW ON THE BOOKS THAT MAKES IT LEGAL TO WEAR A HOLSTERED 6 SHOOTER REVOLVER WITHIN CITY LIMITS, EXCEPT ON SUNDAY, ELECTION DAY, OR HOLIDAYS. THAT’S ODDLY SPECIFIC. WHAT NOW? WHO KNOWS? I SURELY DON’T. WHY IS THIS LAW SO FUCKING SPECIFIC ON DATES? HOW IS THIS ENFORCED? NOBODY KNOWS.
PHOENIX VS FRESNO
PHOENIX DOESN’T REALLY HAVE ANY “DUMB” LAWS, BUT IN ARIZONA IT IS ILLEGAL TO MANUFACTURE AND DISTRIBUTE IMITATION COCAINE. STATUTE 13-3453. I FEEL SORRY FOR ALL THE GROCERY STORES THAT CAN’T CARRY “STORE BRAND” COCAINE BECAUSE IT SEEMS LIKE A MARKET I WANT TO TAP INTO AFTER I RETIRE.
IN FRESNO, CA., ORDINANCE 1076 STATES YOU MAY NOT ANNOY A LIZARD IN A CITY PARK. “GOD DAMN IT, JIMMY. THAT GECKO DOES NOT WANT TO HEAR YOUR STUPID JOKES. THAT’S NOT THE ONE FROM THE GEICO COMMERCIAL EITHER.”
SACRAMENTO VS AUSTIN
IN CALIFORNIA IT IS UNLAWFUL FOR ANIMALS TO MATE PUBLICLY WITHIN 1,500 FEET OF A SCHOOL, TAVERN OR PLACE OF WORSHIP. ANYWHERE ELSE IS OKAY, SUCH AS A SAFEWAY OR AN IN-AND-OUT BURGER. WHO DOESN’T LOVE DINNER AND A SHOW?
IN AUSTIN PER CITY ORDINANCE IT IS ILLEGAL TO CARRY WIRE CUTTERS IN YOUR POCKET. THIS WAS FROM AN OLD WEST PRACTICE OF COWBOYS CUTTING BARBED WIRE FENCES TO ALLOW THEIR CATTLE HERDS TO PASS THROUGH OTHER PEOPLE’S PROPERTY. APPARENTLY THAT WAS A BIG ISSUE. I AM SURE THERE IS A MEOW WOLF EXHIBIT ABOUT THIS SOMEWHERE.
CHARLESTON VS CHARLOTTE
IN CHARLESTON THE FIRE DEPARTMENT MAY BLOW UP YOUR HOUSE. THAT’S IT. THAT’S THE LAW. I HAVE NO COMPLAINTS. THAT’S PRETTY TIGHT.
CHARLOTTE IS PRETTY RIDICULOUS. I GET IT THAT YOU DON’T WANT PEOPLE TO WALK AROUND NAKED, BUT DAMN. WOMEN MUST HAVE THEIR BODIES COVERED BY 16 YARDS OF CLOTH? I DON’T THINK THAT LAW IS STILL IN EFFECT BUT THAT’S SOME BULLSHIT EVEN WHEN IT WAS WRITTEN. HOW ARE YOU SUPPOSED TO MEASURE THAT?
