2016.04.03 16:21 TheSimulatedScholar A place for those of us who know the pre-DVD struggle

Once upon a time anime could only be found on VHS and conventions were a lot smaller. Once upon a time Cosplay was new and differentiated from regular Costuming. Once upon a time we watched whatever we got our hands on, good or bad, because that was all we could fine. The struggle was real.

2023.03.21 06:07 mjporte7766 Inhumans Season 1

I just finished binge watching Marvel's Inhumans Season 1. I know it got a lot of bad reviews and most just hated it. Even myself couldn't even finish watching the first episode on it's first night. With that being said, I was never big on the Inhumans comic books and certainly didn't know much about the characters other than Black Bolt, Medusa and LockJaw and my knowledge of them was through a friend who like reading their stories. I did enjoy Season 1 and I know all other seasons were cancelled within 24 hrs of the first episode so there's no chance of more season. The story itself was very Shakespearean, a tale as old as time itself which has often been used in many books, many movies or series and usually well received. I know I'm not well versed on the Inhumans and certainly wouldn't be aware of any changes of characters or parts of the story. I found the movie harder to watch and again I'm not aware of what they got wrong. Was it the acting? The script? The actors? I thought Anson Mount did a good job considering he didn't speak, not so easy to do. I certainly did enjoy this more than I did both Iron Fists on Netflix, that was a bad combination on many fronts; script, actors, acting, and no working knowledge of the main Character. Many writers, producers and directors have butchered Marvel Characters, Sang-Chi was the worst. Real-action Comic book Characters need to be more for Comic book fans. A good movie will bring people in, lots of movies I didn't get to see in theatres as a kid in the 70's because of an R or AA rating. I didn't suffer any long term problems because of it. little did we know that VHS was right around the corner. That was my rant and rave.

2023.03.21 03:38 Luvadees I guard a woman imprisoned in a facility of things that shouldn't exist.

I'm a guard at a facility that contains the unnatural, or at least what society would consider to be unnatural. The way the world works is pretty set in stone, right? physics, chemistry, biology, what is possible and what is impossible, but what if I told you there was a fine line between the two? between order and complete chaos.
We contain whatever falls out of the norm, whether it be inanimate objects, places or even people, dangerous to themselves and others or completely harmless, we seek them and keep them away from the publics ever prying eyes.
We are called Sentinels and as far as I know, most of us are recruited from the existing pool of special forces and government agents worldwide, but our memories are mostly wiped in the process, you see there is a force at work in the universe that we don't quite understand, and for lack of a better term we refer to it as "Entropy" an unpredictable imbalance or disorder in the way of things.
As Sentinels, we have what's referred to as a low entropy, meaning we are the polar opposite of anomalies which retain a high entropy, things that fall into the norm have the baseline level of entropy, which is what we work to protect. As far as we've been told, a high entropy can be caused through traumatic experiences which living beings have suffered, it affects objects and people as well as the space in which it occurred. Our job as Sentinels is to combat and contain these anomalies using our low entropy levels.
Not every Sentinel is recruited though, there are those which we refer to as Imits, because they were born and raised to be Sentinels, mostly emotionless and stoic, their nickname is a result of them looking as if they're merely imitating a human being. A theory amongst us is that our minds are wiped because trauma leads to higher entropy, no memories equals no trauma, and the imits are trained from birth for the same reason, no trauma or contact with the horrors of this world, and they're trained to be particularly resilient, hence why they're typically on the first line of defence or in command spots.
Anyways on to the anomalies, the first example of many that I will tell you about is Subject-84762 "Barney", Originally brought to us as a corpse which was still showing signs of life despite having a sizeable bullet hole in his head, Barney had shot up a school two days prior to us finding out about him. Inexplicably though, Barney's eyes appeared as if he was in REM sleep and he would frequently make vocalisations that were becoming more common by the hour. We'd measured his entropy levels, which appeared to be 4x the baseline landing him the designation of a Category-4 anomaly.
He was brought in on my 2nd week as a Sentinel apprentice, I was tasked with guarding in the viewing room, watching as the coroner examined his body. "It would appear that the subject is covered in scarring, some seem to be quite faded whilst others are fairly recent" said the coroner, turning him on his back. "There seems to be a warmth emanating from these scars, assistant, scalpel ple-" The coroner was startled by the subject suddenly jolting awake, materialising what appeared to be a limb with a bladed tip made of bone from his back, he slashed the coroners throat.
The assistant screamed as blood sprayed over her, the two Sentinels stationed inside the room jumped to action, one closing his eyes as if going into a trance like state, this seemed to visibly weaken the subject. The 2nd Sentinel opened fire with his firearm, seemingly gaining the upper hand before there was an audible swish, the first Sentinel fell to the floor clutching his stomach as blood spilled over his boots. This seemed to be enough for my mentor, who was in the room with me, while I stood there mouth agape, he'd jumped to action activating the entropy dampeners and locking the room. "You fucking idiot, you forgotten your training or what?" he said staring angrily at me, all I could do was state hopelessly at the carnage taking place in the room ahead of us before feeling a firm slap across my face snapping me out of it.
I felt my mentors grip on my collar, pulling me close until I was face to face with him "Look boy, you're as green as they come, but risk a containment breach again and I will shoot you myself, is that clear?" he growled, "Yes sir" I murmured. My mentor was killed just two weeks later, Grayson was the only name I knew for him, whether it was his first or last name I couldn't tell you, we didn't have a funeral, but then again none of us do. Subject-84762 was appropriately nicknamed wolverine due to his bone blades and healing ability, and ever since he has been involved in over twenty containment breaches/attempts.
Three years later I had climbed the ranks, I was tasked with guarding the more dangerous anomalies, every day bleeding into the next in this cold grey prison filled with monsters. The only entertainment were either the same ten movies we could only work on the decade old television, a small assortment of books, and conversation with other dead eyed Sentinels with no memories just like myself. Even reading about new anomalies had eventually became dull, that was until I was assigned to a new anomaly.
"Diaz is to report to sector two for a new assignment" crackled the speakers, upon arriving I was greeted by a man I had never seen before, tall, smartly dressed in a black suit, his hair slicked back, as far back as I could remember id never seen anybody here dressed like this. "Sentinel Diaz I take it?" the man said in a gruff but firm voice, I nodded in response, "We have a job of utmost importance, and I'm told you're the man for the job" he said. I have to admit, this peaked my curiosity, "But first, you'll have to sign a few documents confirming that you wont disclose any of what you learn to your colleagues, understood sentinel?" "Understood, sir" I said in response.
The documents were a mess of technical mumbo jumbo, but they did tell me a bit about the subject I would be guarding, no name, but she was a woman in her late 20s, supposedly she had been living in another facility since age 14, and an incident had occurred which required a transfer that landed her here. No name, no list of her abilities, no reason as to why she is contained here, nothing, "Just another poor soul who stands out too much to be left alone, huh?" I whispered to myself. "Oh far from it!" the man said startling me. "This woman is highly important to us, which is why we require the best of the best to watch over her for us. Your job will be watching her and noting any changes to her behaviour as well as making sure she is well provided for" the man instructed "I can't tell you what her abilities are or anything else about her really, except this, under no circumstances should you ever hear her voice, believe me."
I was given a small device with a button I should press which would alert them of an emergency, and led to the woman's room by the man. Upon arriving, I was given a few extra instructions from the man, I could only communicate with the woman via a notepad we could place in an airlock of which only one side opened at once, also soundproofed. "Don't screw this up, I can't express the importance of this assignment" were the mans parting words to me as I entered the viewing room.
As I entered, it would seem as if the woman was just waking up, brushing her teeth while staring directly at me, I couldn't help but notice how beautiful she was her dark brown eyes and tanned skin, beautiful black hair gently resting over her shoulders, even if she had just woken up she was still mesmerising. My first time experiencing excitement, I sat in the seat opposite the window just watching her. How could something normal exist in a place like this? as she bent over to spit, I realised how creepy I was being, pointing my eyes in the direction of the control panel instead, I noticed that the audio button had clearly been removed, makes sense, the man did warn me about her voice.
This first 12 hours guarding her went by in a flash, I felt as if for the first time I was experiencing what it was like to be a human, an actual human, not a husk of one as most of us are in here. I'd watched her eat meals, read books, nap, and use her typewriter, although I couldn't make out any of the words whatsoever, the look on her face spun enough of a tale for me. That night, I lay in my cot wondering what she could have possibly done, where she came from. I dreamt of swirling colours like that of the paintings on her walls.
The next day was the first time we used the notepad, as I entered the room she seemed to have just woken up as well, but the light on the airlock was green which meant she had opened it from her side. Opening it up and grabbing the notepad, I saw her glance up from her book out of the corner of my eye. She stood up and begun walking towards the airlock, noticing that the colour of the light on her end had changed to green, she stared at me, looking in my eyes as if she could see me. As I opened up the notepad, there, written on the first page were the first words she would communicate to me. "Hi, I'm Alanie, who are you?" the words read.
Even her handwriting was beautiful, and Alanie, "Hello Alanie" I whispered as I returned her gaze "I'm Diaz, nice to meet you" I wrote in the notepad before gently placing it back in the airlock for her to retrieve. "Are you my new jailer?" I read upon receiving the notepad back, to that I couldn't reply, placing the notepad back in the airlock, I settled down to watch her for the rest of the day, admiring her as she went about her routine, giving her meals every now and then. It wouldn't be a week until we would converse again, "Okay, I'm getting lonely in here, you mind telling me about yourself?" she wrote, a warm feeling filled my stomach as I read these words. "I don't know much about myself really, they take our memories after we're recruited, and we don't leave" the confusion on her face evident as read my words.
The following months consisted of her teaching me about the outside world telling me what cars were, what the internet was, how sunlight felt. Even when we weren't conversing, she would sometimes pull up a chair and read her book with her back to the mirror, allowing me to read along with her. I considered her to be the first friend id made in this place, she made my days a little less dark and claustrophobic, my nights a little less filled with horror. Some days she would look solemn and talk less, others id notice bruising across her skin, Id assumed her to be self harming, try to make her feel a little less alone as she had done me. Eventually it had occurred to me she didn't know what I looked like, so for weeks id struggled to teach myself to draw, I must have went through thousands of sheets of paper before I finally drew something that looked vaguely like me.
The next day, I would slip my portrait in with the notebook with the letters "This is me" written below it, however, I began to worry when she wouldn't get out of bed until afternoon, and when she did I noticed bruising and cuts across her face. That day she didn't open up the airlock, she didn't write to me, she only spared a glance in my direction along with a faint smile. I didn't sleep that night, couldn't sleep, I knew something terrible was happening to her, I wanted to help but didn't know how. Thoughts plagued my mind, thoughts about the man, about breaking into her cell and rescuing her, about seeing this world she spoke so fondly of. She had me smitten, not only her beauty, not only what she had done for me, the life she had given me, but her soul, her beautiful soul that was so evident, that shone so brightly I would forget we were in a dungeon of beasts, I loved her.
Days went by, she seemingly deteriorated, she would lay in her bed for longer and longer hours, wouldn't eat meals, never checked the notepad despite me continuously writing in it. It was tearing me up inside, what was happening during the hours I wasn't there? the day shift would all be in their cots sleeping, prohibited to leave their barracks under consequence of death or being put on the front lines along with the imits which would surely mean the same thing, yet I had to do something. I had to think of a plan to at least find out what was happening to her while I was away.
That night, before heading back to my barracks, I began my walk to sector 7 where the less dangerous anomalies were housed. A lot of the time, these cells are unguarded by Sentinels and instead just patrolled. I hid in the observation room until the patrol had just passed, and once they had, I began looking over which anomaly I would release until eventually I landed on one. Subject-2276 "Johan" nicknamed "Red glass" the boy could crystalise his skin into an unknown material tougher than even diamond, he could also fire projectile shards of this material from his hands at will, but was relatively tame, I didn't want anybody hurt after all. Opening his cell door and running as fast as I could back to sector two, it wasn't one minute until I heard the alarms around the facility blare.
Running faster than I ever thought possible towards Alanie's cell, stumbling as I went, I was forced to stop and hide around a corner as I noticed people in the hallway ahead of me. Looking over at them, I could see the man along with two Sentinels leading her down the hallway, she had her hands bound and her mouth gagged. As she walked they would shock her if she slowed at any point, a hot rage filled my chest as I gripped my firearm, ready to charge over there and execute all three of them, but before I could act, I felt a pain in the back of my head before darkness.
Waking up, the back of my neck feeling wet and my head still aching, I stared around me only to see Alanie directly in front of me, gazing at me while tied to a chair. I tried to reach out to her, but found my hands were tied too, "Alanie, its me, Diaz, are you okay? did they hurt you?" thats when a sick laugh came down the speakers, and then a voice, that same gruff voice which could only belong to the man. "Thought you'd play the hero, huh? thought you would kill us and save the girl? How pathetic of you" the mans harsh words bit like a snake "Though I suppose you have aided us somewhat, I find your attempt at rescue quite insulting" "Aided you in what?" I yelled, staring at the camera in the corner of the room.
The man chuckled, "Ah, let me tell you a little something about our girl, you see, she's not just a prisoner, she's a tool. Quite possibly the most valuable tool we have ever possessed, you see, the reason it isn't advised to hear her voice is because things she states while people can hear her become reality" he said. I was lost for words, I knew this was a dangerous ability to have, but surely there was a way to get rid of it, before I could utter a word he continued "Obviously there's a limit to this ability, for now. She cannot make the moon crash to the Earth, nor make the sun explode, no, but she can blow a hole in the side of a building, she can make heads explode all with just her words. We however believe this to be valuable, an asset, so we are trying to enhance her ability. Trauma, it increases entropy, take a look around, who's cell are you in right now?" I take a look around before it finally clicks.
I was in subject 5673's cell, I didn't have clearance to access the file for this specific subject, but we had all heard the stories, it was a chair which belonged to a therapist in a maximum security prison, imbued with the memories of the evil these men had committed and fallen victim to, this chair would penetrate the minds of whoever was sat in the chair long enough. Laughing more sadistically this time "We were using this chair on our girl for a time, she has made progress but not much, not as much as she would with her own trauma. That's when we stationed you with her along with a means of communication that wasn't verbal, pushed you both together so to say, two lonely hard done by souls". The first of the visions from the chair began, a man being beaten bloody, I felt every blow land on my face, every attempt to stop it failing before I hear the mans voice again "She cares for you, and you her, she will sit here and watch you slowly be driven insane by this endless torture, but even then we won't give you the satisfaction of death".
This went on for hours, the pain of hundreds being etched into my brain, I could taste blood from biting my own tongue and lips, my wrists sore and bleeding from struggling against my bindings, it all felt hopeless when finally I heard an explosion, a big one, feeling my bindings undo themselves, I fell into her arms exhausted. I finally heard her voice whisper "It's ok honey, I'm here" regaining my senses, I see her beautiful brown eyes looking down at me, and a wave of calmness washes over me. I'm finally with her, she wraps me in her warm embrace as I collapse into her arms, before the sound of a gunshot rings in my ears and I feel numb. The last thing I hear before I die, is her scream, a final word from the man, and an audible pop.
Suddenly I see light as I awaken, I feel different, like I'm not me, memories begin flooding my head, memories that feel familiar but aren't mine. The mans voice jolts me up, as I feel myself bound again under a bright light, "I'm sure you must be very confused" says the man, "I'll give you a moment".

2023.03.20 15:17 Spazzzh20 Sonic Retrospective

When rumors about a Sonic Adventure remake hit the internet I was pleasantly surprised. Sonic Adventure was the first game I played for my Dreamcast when I got it back in 1999. I thought of writing a review for it but after playing it again after all these years I realized that a review wouldn't do this game justice. I just wouldn't be able to articulate my feelings on the game and what it means to me with a simple review, so I decided to write a retrospective on it.
When I was a little kid back in 1999 I remember my first time seeing Sonic Adventure in action. I was at my best friend's house and he had just gotten his hands on the brand new Sega Dreamcast. At first, I didn't know what to expect but when I saw the opening Cutscene for Sonic Adventure everything I thought I knew about video games changed.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G7al41LVYog
At the time this was one of the best looking games ever
The only other games I had ever seen in 3D at the time were Super Mario 64 and 007 Goldeneye for the Nintendo 64. Both of these games were great, but neither of them could hold a candle to Sonic Adventure in the visual department. This was the first time I had ever seen a 3D cutscene and it looked outstanding. Even after 20 years, the opening cutscene for Sonic Adventure still has so much liveliness and visual flair. Accompanying this is Johnny Gioli and Jun Senoi's Premiere song for a video game "Open Your Heart", and you have a wonderfully done opening that will stick with you for all the right reasons.
Now the rest of the game I, unfortunately, cannot say the same for. After I went back and played it for about a dozen hours I realized that it didn't quite hold up to my memories. It was by no means a horrible game, but it definitely wasn't the life-changing masterpiece that many people believed it to be back in the late '90s
I realized that I like many people viewed this game through rose-tinted Glasses and filtered all the flaws out in favor of only focusing on the things we adored about it. In order to elaborate I'm going to have to talk about the '90s again.
Back in 1999, I was part of a small clique of students who loved video games and traded game secrets on the playground. Keep in mind the internet sucked back then and games weren't as popular as they are now so even the game sites that did exist at the time rarely focused on giving out game secrets. There was this one kid who was subscribed to Nintendo power and had a six-issue Pokemon miniseries filled with game exploits such as how to capture Missingno.
He traded it to me for a VHS tape I recorded of Sonic Adventure footage showing him how the game looked and how to get past certain levels (God I miss the 90's). Anyway, Sonic Adventure wasn't the first game in the franchise that I played. I had the Sonic And Knuckles collection for Windows 95 which consisted of Sonic The Hedgehog 3, Sonic & Knuckles, as well as Sonic 3& Knuckles. I remember playing through levels like Ice Cap Zone in Sonic 3 and then playing through the 3D rendition in Sonic Adventure. It was so much fun. A lot of things about Sonic Adventure were fun. The characters weren't the most in-depth or well written, but they did a serviceable job of progressing the story. The story for its time was pretty ambitious, but the laughably bad lip-syncing and mouth movement accompanied by flat line delivery from certain side characters makes it hard to take seriously by nowadays standards.
The game could also be very glitchy at times. If you've ever played the game or watched YouTube walkthroughs than chances are you've come across a glitch where you fall through the game world.However, this happens rarely and when it does it can be quite humorous. The games biggest drawback for me though would be its ridiculously small hub world. The hub world in this game is basically a means to connect the game's action stages. While exploring them can be endearing for some I personally never saw them as anything but harmless. They don't hurt the game per se, and they offer a chance to find hidden collectibles and power-ups, but I never felt that there were enough of these to warrant taking away time from the action stages. I think what really hurt this game the most was the development time. Sonic Adventure was rushed to release date on December 23rd in Japan of 1998. Had the development team been given an extra year or maybe even just 10 months It most likely could have been much better. The more I think about a remake of this game the more I can't help but wonder if it is a good idea. There's a lot on the line here and a lot of fans will be pressuring Sega and Sonic Team to do it justice. However, even if the remake does turn out great, it just won't have the same impact as it did back in the day.
Games these days are capable of looking almost lifelike, and Sonic The Hedgehog is looked at more of a kids franchise that people don't want to take seriously anymore. I guess I'm just feeling nostalgic for a time in my life I won't be able to recapture. But you know what I'm fine with that. If this game does get remade it won't be made for me. It will be made primarily for all the people who love the new Sonic. Regardless of whether this game gets made, whether it bombs or succeeds, I will always have my memories of my childhood with the original Sonic Adventure. And who knows maybe 20 years from now an adult who is a kid now will be writing about their experience playing the new Sonic Adventure and feeling nostalgic about that game.

My first time having any kind of sexual experience happened between my cousin Lisa and I when we were in our early teens! Lisa was the one to engage it by asking if I wanted her to suck my dick!
Before I get into the details let me describe for you the players in this incestuous tale! Lisa is about 37 years old now and stands about 5'8" , deep dark hazel eyes, with soft straight hair to the middle of her back! My cousin was a cheerleader, danced numerous different dances, and participated in countless beauty pageants from birth up to placing 2nd in Miss Teen NC competition! She is about 3 years older then me,but even as a pre-teen she had developed nice looking big tits that you just wanna dive in to! Im 34 years old with a short faux hawk I think its called. Im tall and lanky standing at 6'4" and weighing about 165 pounds with like Lisa hazel eyes!
Her mom and mine were really close all through my mom's life, and Lisa and I were raised more as brother and sister then cousins! I remember her and I taking baths together, and her " washing" my dick when we were little! To this day were still close, but no longer kissing cousins.
The night she asked if I wanted her to suck my dick was like most Fridays I spent there. Her mom and dad talked with my mom for a little while. Just catching up ya know? Meanwhile Lisa and I were usually in her room! Usually I was having to play Ken to her barbies! After a little while my mom came in and gave me a hug and kiss bye, and the obligatory " behave," and love you. My Aunt is a retired OR nurse having worked 30+ years in the hospital,and she worked 3rd shift. My Uncle was a cop at the time, and worked either first or second shift(I cant remember which,but he was always in bed before us!)because of him needing to sleep and my aunt going to work. We were usually left to our own devices to amuse ourselves! This night in question Started out perfectly normal. Her mom left for work, and her dad laid down for bed right before she left! Around 10-11 o'clock she told me it was time for my bath! I didn't mind doing this until Lisa came in and said she needed to help me because my Mom told her too( mom didn't!) I was a little embarrassed being a just barely teenager,but she said she would get in with me. Meaning she would be naked also!!!! She did her usual thorough job of washing me! Paying special attention to my dick! This of course caused me to get a raging hard-on,but Li never said anything,so I didn't! I do remember it feeling really good when she washed my cock though, and told her so! She just smiled and kissed me on the cheek telling me we were done! She put her nite gown and panties on, and I just put on my tightie whities! Before we got in the bed she dared me to sleep with no undies on I told her I would if she did! Much to my surprise she skinned those light blue panties right off! So I had to hurriedly take mine off, and jump under covers to hide the erection I had! After a little while of us talking and laughing she asked the question....did I want her to suck my dick! At first I didn't know what to say! I knew what a blow job was having by that time snuck several nudie magazines, and even watching a VHS porn once! Before I could answer she reached over and grabbed my little boner, and started stroking it! Asking if that felt good! I of course said yes, and that YES I wanted her to suck my cock! She said good excitedly,and told me to sit up with my legs straight out! Not wanting this to end I quickly complied with her instructions! She moved down the bed and straddled my legs! The whole time keeping her hand wrapped around my little shaft! Before she started sucking me off. She scooted up my legs, so that we were face to face,and asked if I knew what a french kiss was? I told her yes but I had never kissed a girl on the lips before. She said just to let her take the lead to which I said ok! She leaned in and pressed her full red lips on mine and we slowly started kissing. After a few seconds I felt her lips part and her tongue begin to slide along my lips. So I opened my mouth a little bit causing her to dart her tongue in my mouth. It wasn't long until I got the hang of it, and we were having a tongue tussle that lasted for 10 minutes at least! While we were kissing I automatically ran my hands up her night shirt/night gown...whatever. All the way up to her teenage double or triple b cup sized puffy tits! ( do they make double and triple b cup bras? I dont know.) I instinctively started rubbing, squeezing, and kneading her firm perky teenage mammary glands paying special attention to her nipples as I had noticed she would moan some when I touched them! After a long time of this kissing and caressing! Lisa breaks our lips apart much to my despair ,and slides her self down my legs again until she leans forward with her soft hair tickling my stomach and gently kisses the head of dick!

40 – Planning for Time

Albert looked at the notification from the System hovering, as usual, in the air before his eyes. It always took on different shapes and styles, making letters appear out of pure light at times, while at other times it manipulated the perception of what was already there to make itself blend with the place. This time, it was like an old VHS tape, with flickering text that was the color of television, tunes to a dead channel.
He could redeem the rewards from the quest he completed when he appeared in Elvenhome earlier that night, the action that set off the chain of events that eventually led him to where he was now, at his grandpa’s house waiting for his mother to arrive. But, just as he had skipped cashing in on the rewards then, he decided to do the same now. He was not in the right mind to learn a new skill, especially the skill he had in mind to learn with the auto completion of the quest the system would give him.
Right on cue too, because there was a knock on the door. His mother was here.
***
Samantha Cromwell had made good use of the trip by car, time for herself granted to her either by accident or by design, to reflect and cool down. The new reality was simple: her son was a magically enhanced individual who had been granted a ‘system’ by an unknown entity of unknown goals. The problem it posed was beyond a simple alignment problem, it was almost existential.
But now was not the time. The situation was dire. On her way to her father’s house she received a notification on her phone: it was the Quadrangle, contacting her directly through their preferential – and confidential – channel of communication. It was an encrypted message directed to her and her only, a recording of the live video feed from the surveillance cameras in the containment labs where the Eggs were being held.
They weren’t there anymore. The footage was blurry, but the interference was compatible with the kind of tampering she knew SpaceOps was capable of. The worrying, but totally expected, thing was that when she asked the on-site personnel for status updates, they claimed that all was in the green, and that nothing of note had happened. It wasn’t so much as them not having noticed the break-in, either. They had been, all of them, brainwashed already. She should count herself lucky that circumstances had forced her out of that place, or she didn’t know what would have happened to her had she stayed.
When she arrived at the house she was greeted by her grandpa sprawled on the sofa, sipping a beer straight from the bottle, and her son nervously pacing around the living room, running circles around the table and sofa. Lloyd was evidently amused, but neither she nor her son shared the mood. He was clearly more jaded and used to these situations that Albert was, but she should have been too, yet… this was too personal, too close to home.
At least she finally understood why the kidnapping hadn’t happened to Albert himself but to his friend. PsyOps was scared of him.
“Oh, hey Sam.” Lloyd said, pulling himself up.
“Hi mom. Everything okay?” Albert greeted her.
She schooled her face. “Yeah. Just thinking, that’s all.”
“I know. Me too.” Albert said. “I’ve been thinking about Marc nonstop ever since I saw that photo. If I could, I’d go there right now to rescue him. But I don’t even know where this CARF thing even is.”
“Don’t! It’s too dangerous!”
Albert smiled. “Don’t worry. I can’t. My teleportation only takes me to places I have visited before. It’s just… not fair. It’s not fair. Just because he’s my friend! I wonder how he’s doing.”
Lloyd cleared his throat. “We need to formulate a plan of attack. Albert, tell your mother about the Hazegem.”
“Right. I can rewind time, right now up to… 11 hours. When I do, everything goes back to the way it was before except for information on devices I have touched. And me. I stay in the same location relative to Earth and retain all memories and eventual wounds. But I can heal wounds so—”
“No wounds.” Sam said immediately. “I would never allow it.”
“But,” Lloyd interjected. “This opens up a lot of possibilities. As long as we manage to send him all the information he needs, it doesn’t matter if one of us dies. He can just rewind us back to life.”
Samantha hummed. “This is interesting indeed. Dangerous but interesting.”
She didn’t like the idea of dying, but it sure as hell made for a huge advantage on their part.
“Let’s come up with a plan, we do it and then, eleven hours after that, you Albert rewind time right to the exact moment when we start to act. This way we can update the plan with all the information we gathered in the first iteration.”
“He can rewind only once, right?” Samantha asked.
Lloyd nodded.
“Mmh. We can’t afford slip-ups the second time around, then.”
After the basic information was laid down for all to digest, they finally moved on to the actual planning stage. The one thing they needed to do was to somehow get Albert all the way to the CARF without him sustaining more damage than he could heal. On this point Samantha and her father were in disagreement, but after a heated argument Samantha had to concede that the possibility that Albert would get hurt was real and unavoidable, and she had to accept it.
She didn’t like how lightly the matter was approached, and how readily Albert accepted the risk. She could understand her father, the man was a monster, but what exactly had happened to Albert that he was ready to accept pain as a fair price to pay? What happened to the hypochondriac son she had? He could heal, right, but that was not enough to satisfy her.
Still.
“A possible plan is that he reaches the CARF pre-rewind and then rewinds when he’s in the cell. From there it’s all a matter of leaving the range of the teleportation wards and teleporting out.” Lloyd said.
“I can’t take other people with me.” Albert said, shaking his head.
“You could repair the device.”
“No,” Samantha said. “Bad plan, dad. It doesn’t give us enough maneuvering time. We need to reach the CARF together, all three of us. One of us waits outside for extraction while the other goes in with Albert.”
“Post-rewind?” Lloyd asked.
“The final extraction, yes. Pre-rewind what we do is try to get there, as if we were doing the actual extraction, but just to get the lay of the land. We have no idea about what await for us now that PsyOps own the place. Once things start to get heated we rewind and we re-execute with foreknowledge. Or, if anything goes wrong, he rewinds once it’s clear he can go no further. It’s imperative that we do not enter the teleportation wards unless we are 100% sure we can pull it off to completion. For this I suggest that if we manage to get all the way to the CARF pre-rewind, only us two enter while Albert waits outside. We keep a phone line always open to relay information and video recordings while we try to infiltrate as much as we can, then once we hit a wall he rewinds.”
“Okay.”Lloyd said. “Good plan. Albert?”
Albert took a moment to think. “Sounds okay to me… I don’t know?”
Samantha shook her head, sighing. “He’s not ready. I hate this. He’s not ready, Lloyd, can’t you see?”
“What are the options?” He asked, getting up from the sofa. “What else can we do?”
“We go without him. That’s what. We send him updates on the phone. If we fail to report back, then he rewinds and we’ll know where it all went sideways.”
“I can do this, mom.” Albert said, trying to get her attention.
He was much shorter than her, even without her high heels. She glared at him, seeing him wither under her towering figure.
“You can’t. How long have you had magic? Two weeks? How long have you been ‘training’ with those system quests?”
“I…” he said, whimpering. But then he squared himself up, and suddenly it was as if he was the one towering over her, and she was nothing but a leaf in the wind. If he wanted to hurt her, she could not resist.
Then the moment passed, all that was left the memory of it already fading from her awareness.
On the other side of the room, her father glared at her just as much as she had glared at her son. She looked at him first, then at her father again, and all her resolve seemed to evaporate. But then the thought of her son getting hurt made her stomach lurch, and she felt her throat dry.
“I don’t want you to risk getting hurt, or worse…” she said in a small voice.
“Sam. Get a hold of yourself, for fuck’s sake!” Her father’s booming voice rattled her thoughts. “Grow a spine. You are not his mother now, you are Samantha Cromwell, head of the fucking BSA, you hear me?”
“Guys!” Albert said, trying to gain their attention. “We are wasting time. Rewindable time. Come on, pull yourselves together.”
Samantha stood straighter, and her eyes deepened. Having her own son snap her back to reality was the waking up call she needed. Man, had he always been this assertive? She was proud, if a little bit offended at being yelled at.
“You are right. Plan A – where Albert comes with us – is more risky for him but gives us a lot of maneuvering room. He has magic and can escape at the first sign of danger. Plan B is much riskier. We don’t have mental protection and we could be turned into enemy agents without him ever knowing it happened. We’ll go with plan A. If any of you has a better idea, now is the time.”
They might have had a better idea, maybe. Maybe not. Nobody spoke and Samantha decided it was time to move out. The rewind window was approaching rapidly, with the Hazegem becoming usable at noon at the earliest. It was 5 in the morning now, which meant that the first possible rewind would be 7 hours from now.
“Albert, if you ever need to rewind, rewind back to this moment. If you do that we’ll see you disappear before our eyes and then teleport in, right?”
“Yes, that’s how it looks from the outside.”
“Very good. If that happens, then we’ll know something went wrong and we’ll change plans accordingly. From now on, you are the priority, okay? Do not get captured, injured or incapacitated under any circumstances. If you do…”
“Just don’t, kiddo.” Lloyd said. “It’s that easy. What was it you said that one time, git gud?”
Albert chuckled. Samantha smiled a smile that didn’t reach her eyes. If anything happened to him, she would never be able to forgive herself. But this was not the time for such thoughts, and although risky, their plan was the best shot they had with the limited time and means they had.

  4. Here’s the Space where he explains his bet. https://twitter.com/Breedlove22/status/1637236255242219520

But, the mainstream reach of crypto is undeniably growing. https://le.utah.gov/~2023/bills/static/HB0357.html

  57. Senator Lummis got Powell to agree that properly regulated stablecoins could have a place in our banking system and that a workable legal framework for crypto is something Congress should do. https://www.youtube.com/live/8kyhYJ9EFts?feature=share&t=6923
  58. Big Pey is launching something called Atrium Lab. https://twitter.com/bigpeyYT/status/1633830948575010816
  59. Believe it or not…legal systems made up entirely by coders may not be optimal. Incredibly, the study of law is actually a fully developed centuries old academic discipline that lies outside of JavaScript and Python. Unless you have full anonymity, you WILL be cross-chain bridged to IRL law. Some DAOs will learn this the hard way. https://twitter.com/lex_node/status/1633925979004436481
  60. The NY Attorney General just filed against Kucoin for being an unregistered broker-dealer. Here’s the important part: they’re alleging that ETH is a security and a commodity. Their argument is not complex...it’s very straightforward. https://www.docdroid.net/Myyp0yz/kucoin-pdf
  61. Silvergate was a failure of fractional reserve banking, not of crypto. https://twitter.com/CaitlinLong_/status/1633608132713938945
  62. The current US Administration’s Budget seeks to eliminate tax loss harvesting for crypto, add a 30% tax on energy used in crypto mining, hike capital gains taxes on high earners, and beam us directly to clown world with an unrealized gains tax on high earners. https://www.whitehouse.gov/wp-content/uploads/2022/03/budget_fy2023.pdf
  63. The subcommittee hearing on “the Administration’s Attack” on crypto went about like expected. Paul Grewal of Coinbase along with Prof. Evans of Penn State Law made some persuasive pleas for regulatory clarity. The “Anti-Crypto Party”™ also brought out their favorite witness from Duke. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aOUUy4_KwNU
  64. Rep. Emmer (Pro-Crypto) called the current regulatory approach “lazy & destructive…that is chilling innovation.” https://www.youtube.com/live/aOUUy4_KwNU?feature=share&t=5670
  65. Rep. Foster (Cryptophobe): “this is the essential thing that has to be provided for the healthy development of the crypto industry…somewhere there has to be an API provided by a trusted 3rd party to register your crypto wallets.” Why not just completely neuter crypto? https://www.youtube.com/live/aOUUy4_KwNU?feature=share&t=5266
  66. Rep. Ritchie Torres (Pro-Crypto) pointed out offshore deregulated overleveraged centralized crypto companies pose the greatest risk to consumers. But, the regulators don’t focus there. They incredibly only attack the onshore entities. He also pointed out the absurdity of the idea a stablecoin is a security. (Sadly there’s the Section 2(a)(1) exposure). https://www.youtube.com/live/aOUUy4_KwNU?feature=share&t=5703
  67. Rep. Davidson (Pro-Crypto) shamed his anti-crypto colleagues for their implied claims that these assets are the same as centralized assets and came out strongly supporting self-custody and pointed out there was no FTX risk if you self-custodied your assets. “We have people overtly trying to make self-custody illegal.” https://www.youtube.com/live/aOUUy4_KwNU?feature=share&t=6034
  68. CMC is tweeting about IOG’s Sidechain toolkit? https://twitter.com/CoinMarketCap/status/1634773712468852736
  69. Now we’re dealing with U.S. bank runs. Among the casualties was Silicon Valley Bank where Centre (the Circle/Coinbase joint entity that issues USDC) was keeping $3.3 billion of the $43ish billion backing USDC. Signature Bank was also shut down by regulators. https://www.forbes.com/sites/digital-assets/2023/03/11/43-billion-nightmare-sudden-circle-depeg-could-be-about-to-crash-the-price-of-bitcoin-ethereum-bnb-xrp-cardano-dogecoin-polygon-and-solana
  70. Unfortunately, the FDIC insurance limit is $250k. https://www.fdic.gov/resources/deposit-insurance/brochures/deposits-at-a-glance/
  71. The Feds were taking bids for anyone to acquire SVB until 2pm Eastern on Sunday. The big question on Sunday was whether the Feds will cover all uninsured depositors.

  72. Here’s the joint statement from Treasury, Federal Reserve, and FDIC. https://home.treasury.gov/news/press-releases/jy1337
  73. Yellen said NO to a bailout for SVB on Sunday. She’s obviously got bigger macro concerns. But, it’s funny how that fits perfectly with a strategy of suppressing stablecoins generally. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/janet-yellen-silicon-valley-bank-bailout-face-the-nation-interview-today-2023-03-12/
  74. Here Caitlin Long explains the fundamental incompatibility between fast settling crypto and fractional reserve banking that caused all this. https://twitter.com/CaitlinLong_/status/1634573552790929409

  79. Many in the crypto space think that Signature’s shutdown was just an extension of Operation Chokepoint 2.0 aimed at shuttering crypto banking. https://twitter.com/nic__cartestatus/1635328056234766337

2023.03.20 05:32 sdakotaleav Things that might normally look innocent are now presenting as sexualizing and perverted

I've been processing covert and overt SA for the past few months. Something has been coming up over and over. I'm now seeing moments that might be normal in a parent child relationship, as much darker, given what I know about my father.
I think it's normal to get a cute bath video, or something along those lines. But, when I digitized all our family VHS tapes years ago, I realized there were a lot of videos of me naked or not wearing very much between ages 2-8ish. Potty training, some bath videos, changing clothes or in a bathing suit. Or, zooming in on my butt when I'm wearing bloomers around the age of 3 or so.
There's one where I'm around 7, when my dad had just picked me up from swim lessons. (He shot some during lesson too. And captured my rather hot swim teacher in the pool. Gross.) I would often ask to walk down our long driveway once we pulled in. I'm in a bathing suit, walking and my Dad is driving right behind me, taking a video of me walking. It goes on for about 5-7 minutes. He's not saying anything, when he would normally have some kind of stupid dialogue with the camera. You can tell I'm confused by what he's doing too. I stop and look back at him, cross infront of the car acouple times. At the end, I'm giving him a confused look and ask him what he's doing. Him - "Taking your picture" Me - "why" Him - "cause you're pretty".
Seems innocent enough, right? But, he's also done MANY other things that were absolutely crossing the line, and the way he filmed me, not talking and zooming in on me, gives me the creeps. It just does and I can't explain it. It's confusing AF.
He's also always bragged that he gave me my first kiss when I was born. My Mom had an emergency c-section so she wasn't the first to hold me. I always cringed a bit when he told the story. He thought it was sweet so I just smiled and nodded. But now, after realizing that he only sees women as sexual objects, and he doesn't listen to respect most women, I've changed the way I feel about the "first kiss" comment. It feels like he sexualized me as a newborn baby, claiming the first male to female kiss. Rather than a loving parent to child kiss. He essentially made me into a daughter wife. He refused to do housework or even clean up after himself, so I ended up doing it so my Mom wouldn't get mad. So now hearing him say he gave me my first kiss as a newborn, feels darker, like he was giving me more of a "this is my property" kind of kiss, rather than one of real love.
How do you deal with the instances that were extremely covert, to the point where you're not even sure what they were thinking. If it doesn't need to hurt like it does, then it shouldn't, so I wrack my brain and ruminate over these little things that feel bigger than they sound.

2023.03.20 04:23 DearMink_X_YT Sadako Changes. Would like feedback mostly on add-ons.

Hopefully good Sadako changes.
Bold text are the changes, Italics are my thoughts on them.

Power

The Onryō starts the Trial Demanifested, which has the following effects:
Grants the Undetectable Status Effect.
The Onryō is intermittently visible to Survivors who are within 24 metres of her and invisible to Survivors who are farther away.
The Undetectable Status Effect lingers for 1 second after Manifesting and the intermittent visibility lingers for 4 seconds.
The Onryō is unable to attack Survivors or interact with them, but can still interact with environmental objects.
While demanifested, the Onryō cannot be stunned or blinded.
While demanifested, the Onryō breaks all pallets, generators, and breakable walls 15% faster.
Gives a boost while demanifested.

SPECIAL AFFLICTION: CONDEMNED

Survivors who interact with The Onryō's Power gain stacks of Condemned, with a full 7 Stacks putting them in great danger:
+1 Stack of Condemned is gained through the following interactions:
Being within 16 metres of a TV from which The Onryō emerges.
Retrieving a VHS Tape
Turning off a TV
+1 Stack of Condemned is gained every 25 seconds while carrying a retrieved VHS Tape.
-3 Stacks of Condemned are lost when reinserting a carried VHS Tape into the highlighted TV.
1 stack passively gained every 240 seconds within 16 metres of an activated TV.
The following effects are applied to survivors upon gaining stacks of Condemned:
At 4 stacks Survivors suffer from the oblivious status effect
At 5 stacks Survivors suffer from the blindness status effect.
At 6 stacks Survivors suffer from the exposed status effect when outside a 16 metre range of an activated TV and then again 10 seconds after leaving the TV zone.
At 7 stacks Survivors suffer from a 3% Hindered status effect.
Oblivious does not matter too much if the player is moving around demanifested a lot, only a minor benefit. Blindness isn’t the most powerful status effect either. Exposed will overall make the Onryo more powerful. Being the one sent to turn off every TV is much more dangerous. You lose exposed when close to a TV, so an Onryo cant stop you from inserting the tape with a one shot-down.

Other

Movement Speeds:
Walking: 4.6 m/s
Demanifesting: 4.6 m/s
Manifesting: 4.0 m/s ( was 3.68 m/s )
Post-Projection Boost: 6.9 m/s
Duration: 2.5 seconds ( was 1.5 seconds )
You now only slow down less while manifesting. The duration of the speedboost is also now longer at base.

Television Sets:

Initial Cool-down: 30 seconds
This refers to how long until the TVs are activated once the trial begins.
Turn-off Cool-down: 90 seconds ( was 60 seconds )
This refers to how long a TV is unusable for The Onryō after a Survivor retrieved the Tape from it.
Tape-play Cool-down: 60 seconds
This refers to how long a TV is unusable for The Onryō after a Survivor played a Tape on it.
Post-Projection Cool-down: 30 seconds ( was 100 seconds )
This refers to for how long a TV is unusable for The Onryō after she projected to it.
Sadako can use her TVs more, but survivors may more effectively stop her from using them.

Add Ons


Brown

Videotape Copy

TVs turned off by projection now take 100 seconds to reactivate.
Grants 100 % Bonus Bloodpoints for Deluge of Fear Score Events.
( Was “Projection does not inflict Condemned on nearby Survivors.
Grants 100 % Bonus Bloodpoints for Deluge of Fear Score Events.” )

Cabin Sign

“Reduces the time it takes for a TV to turn on after Projection by -12 seconds.

Old Newspaper

( Was “Reduces the time it takes Survivors to acquire another stack of Condemned by -12 % when holding a VHS Tape” )

Well Stone

Reduces the time it takes for a TV to turn on after having been turned off by a Survivor by -15 seconds.

( Was “Reduces the range at which The Onryō is visible while Demanifested by -6 metres.” )

Green


Well Water

Increases the duration of the Undetectable Status Effect by +4 seconds when Manifesting by any means.
( Was “Increases the duration of the Undetectable Status Effect by +2 seconds when Manifesting by any means.” )

Rickety Pinwheel

Survivors within 16 metres of a powered TV suffer from the Oblivious Status Effect.
This effect lingers for 10 seconds after leaving the affected area, and 30 seconds if the survivor turns the TV off.
( Was “Survivors within 8 metres of a powered TV suffer from the Oblivious Status Effect. This effect lingers for 7 seconds after the TV is turned off.” )

Bloody Fingernails

Increases the duration of the Post-Projection Movement Speed boost by 1.5 seconds ( 4 total )
( Was “Increases the duration of the Post-Projection Movement Speed boost by +50 %.” )

VCR
Purple -> Green

All TVs play the Projection effects when The Onryō Projects to a TV, and a fake Onryō will move forward for 2 seconds before disappearing. A terror radius of 24 metres will be set around the TV for 5 seconds after the Projection, and Survivors within 8 metres of the projection will hear chase music for 5 seconds.
( Was “All TVs play the Projection effects when The Onryō Projects to a TV.” )

Telephone
Purple -> Green

Survivors witnessing a Manifestation from within 7 metres will scream and will be unable to perform rushed actions or pull down pallets for 1.5 seconds.
It takes 1 additional second to manifest.
( Was “Survivors witnessing a Manifestation from within 7 metres suffer from the Hindered Status Effect for 3 seconds.” )
It is similar to playing Doctor, as you can stop a survivor from dropping pallets and vaulting pallets and windows if you time it right.

Purple


Ring Drawing
Green -> Purple

When a survivor is unhooked from their first hook stage, the survivor who unhooked them gains 1 stack of condemned. When a survivor is unhooked from their second hook stage, the survivor who unhooked them gain 2 stacks of condemned.
( Was “Condemned Survivors spread their Condemnation to other Survivors, who complete a Healing action on them.” )
Now the builds for slugging and hit-and-run styles play won't be able to use this addon. If you get more hooks, survivors suffer more. Also encourages tunneling less if you can get an unhooker condemned faster.

Mother’s Comb
Green -> Purple

Reveals the aura of a Survivor who turns off a TV by any means for 7 seconds and grants the Onryō a 10% Haste status effect for 7 seconds.
( Was “Reveals the Aura of any TV being turned off in yellow.” )
Kind of like the coffee addon for trapper. Randomly receive a speedboost, could help win a chase, may compensate for loss of map traversal via projection.

Tape Editing Deck

Each Survivor starts the Trial with a VHS Tape in their possession, and their highlighted TV is the one farthest from their location. Once the exit gates are powered, every survivor gains a stack of Condemned and are given another tape also to be delivered to the farthest TV from their location. If a survivor attempts to leave while holding a tape, they will instantly gain 7 stacks of condemned and the exit gates will be blocked for 7 seconds.
( Was “Each Survivor starts the Trial with a VHS Tape in their possession, and their highlighted TV is the one farthest from their location.” )
Make it more like field recorder or iri tape for pig, an effect at the start and end of the trial.

Distorted Photo

While demanifested you see the aura of every survivor within 16 metres of you.
You are no longer undetectable while demanifested.
The Onryō may now perform an attack while demanifested. Attacks while demanifested will cause you to manifest.
( Was “Survivors witnessing a Manifestation from within 16 metres will scream, revealing their location for 4 seconds.” )
This will change your playstyle. You are better at finding survivors but don’t have the undetectable status effect. You may still use the other advantages of being demanifested to help you in a chase, and on top of that attack normally. A combo with rickety pinwheel may prove useful.

Iri


Remote Control

Remote Control changes the following:
Survivors who insert a tape will suffer from the Exposed status effect for 30 seconds.
TVs will not turn off when a Survivor removes a tape or inserts a tape.
Survivors can no longer be killed by Inexorable Stare.
The amount of stacks of Condemned a survivor has is revealed to you.
The Onryō will receive varying Haste status effects from each survivor based on stacks of condemn up to a maximum of 15% haste.
1 stack on a Survivor = 1% haste All 4 = 4% haste
2 stacks on a Survivor = 2% haste All 4 = 8% haste
3 stacks on a Survivor = 3% haste All 4 = 12% Haste
4 stacks on a Survivor = 4% haste All 4 = 16% Haste
5 stacks on a Survivor = 5% haste All 4 = 20% Haste
6 stacks on a Survivor = 6% haste All 4 = 24% Haste
7 stacks on a Survivor = 15% haste All 4 = 60% Haste
( Was “After using Projection, the Auras of Survivors, who are within 16 metres of a TV and carrying a VHS Tape, are revealed to you for 7 seconds.” )
My idea for the two iris is to make them change how you play Sadako. This will encourage you to spread condemn and make it so survivors cant stop you from spreading it by turning off Tvs. You will have fun and have a better time chasing with the many speed boosts you will have. Combined with other perks, like Play With Your Food, you can reach insane speeds.

Iridescent Videotape

Iridescent Videotape changes the following:
Survivors may now be killed by Inexorable Stare when they gain 6 stacks of condemened.
Projection will now give survivors 1.2 stacks of condemned ( 1.2 x 5 = 6 stacks. )
Survivors who gain 7 stacks of condemned may no longer retrieve a tape and their aura is revealed to The Onryō while they are outside of a 32 metre radius.
Condemned may only be gained through passive gain and when The Onryō uses projection.
The base cool-down of projection is now 60 seconds.
All status effects of condemned except for the Exposed status effect are applied at 5 stacks ( Oblivious, Blindness, 3% Hindered )
( Was “Hitting a Survivor within 8 seconds after Manifesting turns on the last 4 TVs turned off by Projection.” )
Again, my idea for the two iris is to make them change how you play Sadako. This one is for people who want to try their best to mori every survivor. You cant use addons ( except Yoichi’s Fishing Net ) to help spread condemned faster, it is pure projection gameplay. If a survivor doesn’t have a tape upon reaching 7 stacks then they are basically done for.

2023.03.20 02:07 RandomHermit113 what's your LEAST favorite town?

a lot of polls tend to crop up on this sub asking people what their favorite town is, but i've yet to see one asking what people's LEAST favorite town is.
this is just my opinion, but personally i've always found rosewood rather boring. it's a decent start, sure (easy axes in the fire station, generally low pop, easy books, etc.) but i'd argue riverside is far better if you want a chill start, seeing as it is far easier to get a car (giant parking lots and a VHS store to find a carzone tape and level up your mechanics for hotwiring), has far more books, more hardware loot, and lower zombie population density to boot. rosewood doesn't really have anything that riverside doesn't have apart from a little more guns and ammo in the police station, and the fact that the surrounding fields and forests are swarmed with zombies that constantly trickle into town is also quite annoying.
furthermore, in the late game, there's really little reason to visit the town at all, except for the fire station or police station. the lack of any significant hardware loot makes rosewood pale in comparison to other towns - every other town has at least one warehouse and storage unit complex, and riverside and west point have tool stores, but in rosewood your only source of hardware loot is garages (and it's not like other towns are lacking in those, either). not to mention it's somewhat out of the way as well.
rosewood fire station is a fun base but i prefer to base closer to water for fishing, and the size feels somewhat unnecessary.
not saying rosewood is bad - i still like it - just that the other towns tend to interest me more.
that's just my two cents, though, so i'm curious what the rest of this community has to say.

2023.03.20 01:36 MrSamsonite Bearish Decoupling: What we missed about the Bank Failures

Bearish Decoupling: What we missed about the Bank Failures
This is going to sound, well, regarded.
But I believe this to be completely true, and I think I can convince you of the same:
Peter Thiel's Founders Fund venture capital firm intentionally collapsed Silicon Valley Bank in order to create a global panic
We'll dig deeper into Peter Thiel later on, but for now just know that he's a notorious tech billionaire who runs a venture capital (VC) firm called Founders Fund.
I. The Bank Run
On March 10, Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) collapsed, becoming the second largest bank failure in US History.
The timeline of the collapse was as follows:
  • Two days prior, SVB reported some troubling financials: They were at risk of being downgraded and had an emergency stock sale to avoid it.
  • Several large tech VCs urged their portfolio companies to withdraw their deposits from SVB
  • The word spread through the industry and smaller VCs followed suit
  • This created a run on the bank: Depositors rushed to withdraw their money and SVB went under.
Although the bank would have been in serious long-term financial trouble regardless, it would have lived to see another day if the bank run didn't occur: No bank run, no collapse. Unless multiple VCs had come to their own independent decision to tell customers to withdraw at virtually the same exact time, this means that only one VC caused the bank run. If that one VC doesn't get spooked and alert their investors, then there is no reason for any other VCs to panic and tell their own investors to withdraw.
So which VC was the first to report it? This is difficult to pinpoint exactly, but Peter Thiel's Founders Fund Is the only one I've found cited:
  • "News of… Peter Thiel's Founders Firm [sic] advising clients to withdraw their deposits from Silicon Valley Bank has hit the main street press" (3/10 - during the bank run)
  • "[Thiel's] efforts are thought to be the first that eventually sparked the bank run" (3/13)
  • "After [Founders Fund] advised clients to move their money out of SVB early Thursday morning, panic ensued" (3/16)
It is clear that Thiel had the means and opportunity to cause the bank run, but that certainly doesn't mean he did it intentionally. Wouldn't the most likely explanation be that they alerted their investors but hadn't considered that it could lead to a bank run? How could Thiel possibly have a motive to do something as ludicrous as collapsing a bank, especially since he had $50 million in SVB? It's a long walk but we'll get there.
II. Thiel's Big Bet
Peter Thiel rose to tech stardom during the dot-com bubble as a founder and CEO of PayPal, which became one of the first and most successful ways to make payments online using a digital wallet. In 2005, he created Founders Fund, a generalist VC firm that has had investments in companies as diverse as SpaceX, Airbnb, Facebook, Spotify and Oscar Health.
Thiel has made countless investments, but the majority of Thiel's $8 billion estimated net worth can be traced to one specific asset. Starting in mid-2017, Founders Fund bought around $20 million worth of Bitcoin. Immediately afterward, Bitcoin began its first massive surge, jumping from $50 to $315 in less than six months.
While Founders Fund has given very few specifics about their Bitcoin holdings since then, Peter Thiel's net worth over time shows a strikingly similar pattern to the price of Bitcoin.

https://preview.redd.it/sibyhg7yhsoa1.png?width=1276&format=png&auto=webp&s=a9afcd3eade37db0e7a7d3b565d3b5d7f3e9ab05
If his portfolio were diversified across Founders Fund's holdings, we would expect virtually no correlation between the shapes of the two lines. Instead, we see almost identical trends since 2021. This chart makes clear that the lion's share of Thiel's net worth is in Bitcoin, making him one of the wealthiest crypto billionaires on the planet.
But before we go further, we're going to need a crash course.
III. A Beginner's Guide to Ponzi Schemes
Ponzi schemes are often very elaborate in order to keep the scheme hidden, but the fundamentals are extremely simple: The scam operator gets people to invest in something by promising very high returns, but the investment doesn't actually exist. Instead, the scammer pays off people's returns with money they got from other investors. So if two people invest $100 in a Ponzi scheme and then the "investment" goes up 50% and one of them withdraws, the scammer will pay out the $150 from the $200 collected.
Because Ponzi schemes make no real investments, they could never pay back all of the returns to all of the investors. Because of this, Ponzi schemes require a constant flow of new money to stay AFLOAT. If our example scammer never finds a third investor and the remaining investor tries to withdraw their $150, the scammer can't pay it and the Ponzi scheme would be revealed as a sham.
This causes the collapse of the scheme to become more devastating for victims the longer it goes on: Victims see the high returns they're apparently getting on their investment so they often leave their money in and continually add to it. When the scheme collapses, all of the money that the victim thought they had invested is revealed to be non-existent: They've been getting statements showing their investment increasing, but their money disappeared a long time ago.
Although Ponzi schemes can look massively different than one another, there are several common characteristics such as the following:
  • High investment returns with little to no risk
    • High returns incentivize victims to keep investing instead of withdrawing their money, which could lead to the scheme's collapse. It also makes the victims less likely to inspect things too closely because they believe they are getting incredible returns.
  • Unregistered investments
    • Because the investments are fraudulent, scammers avoid registering the investments with regulators like the SEC, which keeps governments and the public from seeing the details of the operation. This can often involve hiding assets.
  • Hype the investment and promise incredible returns
    • These attract new victims into the Ponzi scheme, get existing victims to keep investing more of their money, and drown out skeptical voices.
  • Complex and mysterious investments
    • By building complex webs around the supposed investments, scammers position themselves as the knowing experts, they make everything too arcane for the victim to understand, and they justify the astronomical returns.
IV. A Non-Exhaustive List of Known Cryptocurrency Ponzi Schemes
While Ponzi schemes can exist in any industry, they have been especially common in the cryptocurrency industry. Note the common characteristics of Ponzi schemes throughout.
  • 2011-2012: Bitcoin Savings & Trust offered a bitcoin arbitrage investment with guaranteed returns of 3,641% per year, stealing $4.5 million from victims.
  • 2014-2017: OneCoin sells a coin with entirely fake crypto mining and blockchain commitment. 96 people arrested. $4 billion stolen.
  • 2016-2018: AriseBank claims itself the world's first decentralized banking platform. They sell unregistered securities and lie to victims that their money is FDIC insured, ultimately stealing $4 million from investors.
  • 2017: Centratech promises to launch the "Centra Card", which could be used to pay with cryptocurrency anywhere Visa or Mastercard are accepted, though they never partnered with either company. They created a fictitious Harvard alumnus CEO to give the scam more credibility.
  • 2017-2019: Celsius "lent the same assets over and over and over again to juice yields", as industry custodian bank Prime Trust noted. They suffered a liquidity crisis and suddenly closed the operation. $4.7 billion stolen.
  • 2018: Bitconnect offers a complex new investment that involves lending their coin in return for interest payouts determined by a trading bot at an astronomical 377% per year. Bitconnect suddenly shuts down and the coin price plummets 92%. It is a near total loss of value for the victims.
  • 2018-2019: PlusToken offers 9% to 18% monthly returns, hyping the scam at conferences and meetups. 96 people arrested. Over $2 billion stolen.
  • 2018-2022: Terra) stablecoin is allegedly pegged to the U.S. dollar based on and promises 20% returns for investors. The peg is not backed by cash or collateral, but by a smart algorithm that they guaranteed would maintain the peg. Terra suddenly loses its peg, wiping out $45 billion of market capitalization in a week.
  • 2019-2021: FTX provides a cryptocurrency exchange for people to invest in coins, but secretly funnels the cash out of the exchange and replaces it with their worthless sham coin, stealing $10 billion from victims.
V. How Peter Thiel sells Bitcoin
Even though there are clearly outsized numbers of Ponzi schemes within the cryptocurrency industry, it doesn't mean Peter Thiel is running a Ponzi scheme as well. But does Thiel's operation share any of these common characteristics?
Let's have a look at his Bitcoin 2022 Conference keynote speech and see if it sounds like any of the aforementioned cryptocurrency scams:
He asserts that Bitcoin is a store of value and a gold replacement because it is an impenetrably safe asset for investors during turbulent times, echoing an argument he's been making since at least 2018. "Bitcoin: Store of value. Gold replacement."
Although Bitcoin was roughly $45,000 per coin at the time, Thiel says it is severely undervalued. Since gold has a market cap of $12 trillion, and since Bitcoin is replacing gold like he told us, we can expect Bitcoin to explode up to a $10 trillion market cap, which would be about roughly a 10x increase in the price of Bitcoin.
But then he pivots: "But the real competitor for Bitcoin…is not even gold. It's something like the S&P 500; it's the stock market as a whole." He explains that the gold market and the stock market were the same size in 1980, but now the stock market is 10 times the size of gold. And, he asks, since the stock market is the benchmark for Bitcoin, "Why can't there be parity between Bitcoin and equities? Why wouldn't we be talking about something more like a hundred-to-one [increase in Bitcoin price]?" The audience goes wild with excitement.
He then shows a chart that shows Bitcoin's 2021 surge overlaid on a map of the rate of inflation, which started rising a few months after Bitcoin did:

https://preview.redd.it/03gwtouzhsoa1.png?width=637&format=png&auto=webp&s=e235301c270decfc375ed522d93a63ab72797416
This could just be a coincidence, and he doesn't bother addressing the clear divergence between the two starting in late 2021. Instead, he asserts that this is because "Bitcoin is always the most honest market in the world. It's the most efficient market, and it was the canary in the coal mine…it was telling us the inflation was coming….It is telling us that the central banks are bankrupt, that we are at the end of the fiat regime."
In his conclusion, he explains that in our corrupt world of traditional finance, Bitcoin's biggest asset is the mysterious veil that surrounds it, since it protects against enemy number one: The Federal banking system. "Bitcoin is not a company. We do not have a board. We do not know who Satoshi [the mysterious creator of Bitcoin] is."
Is Bitcoin a Ponzi scheme? I don't know. Does Bitcoin sound nearly identical to several known Ponzi schemes? It certainly does. Absolutely.
VI. The Bearish Decoupling
Although Bitcoin had an unprecedented years-long surge since Thiel invested in 2017, it reached its last peak in October, 2021. Since then, the price of Bitcoin has plummeted over 70%.
In 2021, Thiel backed the cryptocurrency exchange Bitpanda, which tripled its valuation to $4.1 billion in just five months after the deal. A year later, Bitpanda laid off a third of their workforce as Bitcoin plummeted.
Remember how Ponzi schemes always require more and more cash inflows or else the bottom will fall out? If Thiel is running a Ponzi scheme, then this would be catastrophic. It would only be a matter of time until the bottom falls out unless Thiel could start getting a whole lot of cash flowing in again.
7. What about those other Bank Failures?
Silicon Valley Bank wasn't the only bank failure in March 2023. Two days prior, Silvergate Capital liquidated; two days after SVB, Signature Bank went under. Although the narrative has been around a failure of regional banking**, Silvergate and Signature were** the two largest providers of banking services to the cryptocurrency industry.
Last December, in the wake of the FTX collapse, Senators Elizabeth Warren and Tina Smith wrote a letter to Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell. The FTX collapse surfaced alarming exposure to cryptocurrency in the U.S. banking system (insolvent husks in bold):
"Moonstone and Deltec are just two of several banks to have their crypto ties come under scrutiny in the FTX fallout, including Silvergate Capital Corp., Provident Bancorp Inc., Metropolitan Commercial Bank, Signature Bank, Customers Bancorp Inc., and others." They go on to say, "In the case of Silvergate, crypto deposits accounted for 90% of the bank's overall deposit base."
Silvergate and Signature were so critical to the cryptocurrency industry because they had offered 24/7 transfers between cryptocurrency and fiat money (US Dollars and so on). These services played a crucial role in keeping Ponzi schemes alive, as we know from our crash course above: First, it supports the illusion that fraudulent coins are just as valuable as real money by allowing the seamless transfer from one to the other. Second, these services allowed for a massive increase in cash flows, which the scheme needs in order to survive.
VIII. Today in Bitcoin
Although the industry has been in shambles for a year and a half and the two largest cryptocurrency banks just imploded, the sentiment around cryptocurrency is more positive than it has been in a very long time.
"Bitcoin thrives in chaos", says Bloomberg. "Turmoil in the banking sector, hotter-than expected inflation data, and renewed hopes for a dovish Federal Reserve has Bitcoin reaching levels not seen in about nine months."
While some have tried to put the blame on cryptocurrency for these bank failures, former Congressman and Signature Bank board member Barney Frank has a different theory: The collapse of these banks was caused by too much unnecessary panic around cryptocurrency.
Forbes, which cryptocurrency giant Binance owns 20% of, ran the following headline: "Bitcoin at $1 Million In 90 Days And Dollar Destroyed -- Huge Crypto Price Prediction Bet Fueled By Bank Crisis and Hyperinflation.", which has an uncanny resemblance to what Peter Thiel shared in his Bitcoin 2022 keynote speech.
Or as Thiel said in 2018: "I would be long bitcoin, and neutral to skeptical of just about everything else… It's like bars of gold in a vault that never move, and it's a sort of hedge against the whole world falling apart".
IX. Putting it all Together
Based on the preponderance of evidence above, I believe the following to be true:
Peter Thiel (and likely countless associates) intentionally caused a run on Silicon Valley Bank by telling his fund's investors to pull out. He did this because his bitcoin empire is a sham, and the tangled web of Ponzi schemes at the heart of the cryptocurrency industry was collapsing after new investors dried up.
The SVB collapse would distract the public from the obvious failures in the crypto industry, would jeopardize the traditional banking system, and would sow fear and panic across the planet as people start withdrawing their money from the banks.
Meanwhile, he and his army of shills continue promoting the narrative that these bank failures were caused by regional banking issues and not by the collapse of history's largest Ponzi scheme. They stir up panic and distrust in the traditional banking system and then sell bitcoin as the only safe alternative.
As of this writing, bitcoin is up 45% in the 9 days since the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank.

2023.03.20 01:26 MrSamsonite I think I figured out this whole bank failure thing

I think I figured out this whole bank failure thing
(Hello in advance, Red Scare fans! I hope your next daddy treats you better than this supervillain)
Some of you may have seen a very different proto-version of this that I posted from the rabbit hole yesterday. I was close, but now I'm fucking there. I believe this to be completely true, and I think I can convince you of the same:
Peter Thiel's Founders Fund venture capital firm intentionally collapsed Silicon Valley Bank in order to create a global panic
We'll dig deeper into Peter Thiel later on, but for now just know that he's a notorious tech billionaire who runs a venture capital (VC) firm called Founders Fund.

I. The Bank Run
On March 10, Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) collapsed, becoming the second largest bank failure in US History.
The timeline of the collapse was as follows:
  • Two days prior, SVB reported some troubling financials: They were at risk of being downgraded and had an emergency stock sale to avoid it.
  • Several large tech VCs urged their portfolio companies to withdraw their deposits from SVB
  • The word spread through the industry and smaller VCs followed suit
  • This created a run on the bank: Depositors rushed to withdraw their money and SVB went under.
Although the bank would have been in serious long-term financial trouble regardless, it would have lived to see another day if the bank run didn't occur: No bank run, no collapse. Unless multiple VCs had come to their own independent decision to tell customers to withdraw at virtually the same exact time, this means that only one VC caused the bank run. If that one VC doesn't get spooked and alert their investors, then there is no reason for any other VCs to panic and tell their own investors to withdraw.
So which VC was the first to report it? This is difficult to pinpoint exactly, but Peter Thiel's Founders Fund Is the only one I've found cited:
  • "News of… Peter Thiel's Founders Firm [sic] advising clients to withdraw their deposits from Silicon Valley Bank has hit the main street press" (3/10 - during the bank run)
  • "[Thiel's] efforts are thought to be the first that eventually sparked the bank run" (3/13)
  • "After [Founders Fund] advised clients to move their money out of SVB early Thursday morning, panic ensued" (3/16)
It is clear that Thiel had the means and opportunity to cause the bank run, but that certainly doesn't mean he did it intentionally. Wouldn't the most likely explanation be that they alerted their investors but hadn't considered that it could lead to a bank run? How could Thiel possibly have a motive to do something as ludicrous as collapsing a bank, especially since he had $50 million in SVB? It's a long walk but we'll get there.

II. Thiel's Big Bet
Peter Thiel rose to tech stardom during the dot-com bubble as a founder and CEO of PayPal, which became one of the first and most successful ways to make payments online using a digital wallet. In 2005, he created Founders Fund, a generalist VC firm that has had investments in companies as diverse as SpaceX, Airbnb, Facebook, Spotify and Oscar Health.
Thiel has made countless investments, but the majority of Thiel's $8 billion estimated net worth can be traced to one specific asset. Starting in mid-2017, Founders Fund bought around $20 million worth of Bitcoin. Immediately afterward, Bitcoin began its first massive surge, jumping from $50 to $315 in less than six months.
While Founders Fund has given very few specifics about their Bitcoin holdings since then, Peter Thiel's net worth over time shows a strikingly similar pattern to the price of Bitcoin.

https://preview.redd.it/0v198wexfsoa1.png?width=1276&format=png&auto=webp&s=7ad6b0c6e8e550c3d72a1b119cbca70a07800a99
If his portfolio were diversified across Founders Fund's holdings, we would expect virtually no correlation between the shapes of the two lines. Instead, we see almost identical trends since 2021. This chart makes clear that the lion's share of Thiel's net worth is in Bitcoin, making him one of the wealthiest crypto billionaires on the planet.
But before we go further, we're going to need a crash course.

III. A Beginner's Guide to Ponzi Schemes
Ponzi schemes are often very elaborate in order to keep the scheme hidden, but the fundamentals are extremely simple: The scam operator gets people to invest in something by promising very high returns, but the investment doesn't actually exist. Instead, the scammer pays off people's returns with money they got from other investors. So if two people invest $100 in a Ponzi scheme and then the "investment" goes up 50% and one of them withdraws, the scammer will pay out the $150 from the $200 collected.
Because Ponzi schemes make no real investments, they could never pay back all of the returns to all of the investors. Because of this, Ponzi schemes require a constant flow of new money to stay AFLOAT. If our example scammer never finds a third investor and the remaining investor tries to withdraw their $150, the scammer can't pay it and the Ponzi scheme would be revealed as a sham.
This causes the collapse of the scheme to become more devastating for victims the longer it goes on: Victims see the high returns they're apparently getting on their investment so they often leave their money in and continually add to it. When the scheme collapses, all of the money that the victim thought they had invested is revealed to be non-existent: They've been getting statements showing their investment increasing, but their money disappeared a long time ago.
Although Ponzi schemes can look massively different than one another, there are several common characteristics such as the following:
  • High investment returns with little to no risk
    • High returns incentivize victims to keep investing instead of withdrawing their money, which could lead to the scheme's collapse. It also makes the victims less likely to inspect things too closely because they believe they are getting incredible returns.
  • Unregistered investments
    • Because the investments are fraudulent, scammers avoid registering the investments with regulators like the SEC, which keeps governments and the public from seeing the details of the operation. This can often involve hiding assets.
  • Hype the investment and promise incredible returns
    • These attract new victims into the Ponzi scheme, get existing victims to keep investing more of their money, and drown out skeptical voices.
  • Complex and mysterious investments
    • By building complex webs around the supposed investments, scammers position themselves as the knowing experts, they make everything too arcane for the victim to understand, and they justify the astronomical returns.

IV. A Non-Exhaustive List of Known Cryptocurrency Ponzi Schemes
While Ponzi schemes can exist in any industry, they have been especially common in the cryptocurrency industry. Note the common characteristics of Ponzi schemes throughout.
  • 2011-2012: Bitcoin Savings & Trust offered a bitcoin arbitrage investment with guaranteed returns of 3,641% per year, stealing $4.5 million from victims.
  • 2014-2017: OneCoin sells a coin with entirely fake crypto mining and blockchain commitment. 96 people arrested. $4 billion stolen.
  • 2016-2018: AriseBank claims itself the world's first decentralized banking platform. They sell unregistered securities and lie to victims that their money is FDIC insured, ultimately stealing $4 million from investors.
  • 2017: Centratech promises to launch the "Centra Card", which could be used to pay with cryptocurrency anywhere Visa or Mastercard are accepted, though they never partnered with either company. They created a fictitious Harvard alumnus CEO to give the scam more credibility.
  • 2017-2019: Celsius "lent the same assets over and over and over again to juice yields", as industry custodian bank Prime Trust noted. They suffered a liquidity crisis and suddenly closed the operation. $4.7 billion stolen.
  • 2018: Bitconnect offers a complex new investment that involves lending their coin in return for interest payouts determined by a trading bot at an astronomical 377% per year. Bitconnect suddenly shuts down and the coin price plummets 92%. It is a near total loss of value for the victims.
  • 2018-2019: PlusToken offers 9% to 18% monthly returns, hyping the scam at conferences and meetups. 96 people arrested. Over $2 billion stolen.
  • 2018-2022: Terra) stablecoin is allegedly pegged to the U.S. dollar based on and promises 20% returns for investors. The peg is not backed by cash or collateral, but by a smart algorithm that they guaranteed would maintain the peg. Terra suddenly loses its peg, wiping out $45 billion of market capitalization in a week.
  • 2019-2021: FTX provides a cryptocurrency exchange for people to invest in coins, but secretly funnels the cash out of the exchange and replaces it with their worthless sham coin, stealing $10 billion from victims.

V. How Peter Thiel sells Bitcoin
Even though there are clearly outsized numbers of Ponzi schemes within the cryptocurrency industry, it doesn't mean Peter Thiel is running a Ponzi scheme as well. But does Thiel's operation share any of these common characteristics?
Let's have a look at his Bitcoin 2022 Conference keynote speech and see if it sounds like any of the aforementioned cryptocurrency scams:
He asserts that Bitcoin is a store of value and a gold replacement because it is an impenetrably safe asset for investors during turbulent times, echoing an argument he's been making since at least 2018. "Bitcoin: Store of value. Gold replacement."
Although Bitcoin was roughly $45,000 per coin at the time, Thiel says it is severely undervalued. Since gold has a market cap of $12 trillion, and since Bitcoin is replacing gold like he told us, we can expect Bitcoin to explode up to a $10 trillion market cap, which would be about roughly a 10x increase in the price of Bitcoin.
But then he pivots: "But the real competitor for Bitcoin…is not even gold. It's something like the S&P 500; it's the stock market as a whole." He explains that the gold market and the stock market were the same size in 1980, but now the stock market is 10 times the size of gold. And, he asks, since the stock market is the benchmark for Bitcoin, "Why can't there be parity between Bitcoin and equities? Why wouldn't we be talking about something more like a hundred-to-one [increase in Bitcoin price]?" The audience goes wild with excitement.
He then shows a chart that shows Bitcoin's 2021 surge overlaid on a map of the rate of inflation, which started rising a few months after Bitcoin did:

https://preview.redd.it/5el2nhp4gsoa1.png?width=637&format=png&auto=webp&s=7b217e34dc887c550e230ccf60549aca5e0959cb
This could just be a coincidence, and he doesn't bother addressing the clear divergence between the two starting in late 2021. Instead, he asserts that this is because "Bitcoin is always the most honest market in the world. It's the most efficient market, and it was the canary in the coal mine…it was telling us the inflation was coming….It is telling us that the central banks are bankrupt, that we are at the end of the fiat regime."
In his conclusion, he explains that in our corrupt world of traditional finance, Bitcoin's biggest asset is the mysterious veil that surrounds it, since it protects against enemy number one: The Federal banking system. "Bitcoin is not a company. We do not have a board. We do not know who Satoshi [the mysterious creator of Bitcoin] is."
Is Bitcoin a Ponzi scheme? I don't know. Does Bitcoin sound nearly identical to several known Ponzi schemes? It certainly does. Absolutely.

VI. The Bearish Decoupling
Although Bitcoin had an unprecedented years-long surge since Thiel invested in 2017, it reached its last peak in October, 2021. Since then, the price of Bitcoin has plummeted over 70%.
In 2021, Thiel backed the cryptocurrency exchange Bitpanda, which tripled its valuation to $4.1 billion in just five months after the deal. A year later, Bitpanda laid off a third of their workforce as Bitcoin plummeted.
Remember how Ponzi schemes always require more and more cash inflows or else the bottom will fall out? If Thiel is running a Ponzi scheme, then this would be catastrophic. It would only be a matter of time until the bottom falls out unless Thiel could start getting a whole lot of cash flowing in again.

As of this writing, bitcoin is up 45% in the 9 days since the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank.
If Thiel had substantial bitcoin holdings when SVB collapsed, as he has for every single bitcoin rip since 2015, then Peter Thiel has likely made billions of dollars in less than two weeks.

2023.03.19 19:47 Astraea802 Does the Ted and Robin ending also heal the friendship divide?

I know there's a lot of contention about the Ted and Robin ending. But the other sad focus of the finale was how Robin drifted away from the rest of the gang after her divorce from Barney.
She explains to Lily how even though she still cares about her friends, it's hard to be around the group between her ex-husband, Barney, and her former love interest, Ted, on top of her career.
But between her career calming down a bit, Barney long since moving on from Robin by becoming a single father, and Ted reaching out to her again, the much-hated ending might have the side effect of bridging the gap between Robin and the rest of the group. And I kind of wish the writers had focused on that aspect more - it might have made the planned ending more palatable if Ted was also reaching out to bring Robin back into the fold of the group, more than just trying to romance her. Because Robin wouldn't have become friends with the group in the first place if not for dating Ted.
It can never be like it was in their 20s, of course, since 4/5 members of the group have children to take care of, but it could mean they all grow old together in their own ways.
But what do you think? Regardless of your feelings on Robin/Ted and Robin/Barney, does the Robin ending have a silver lining?

2023.03.19 15:54 HansofBevaria VHS-2 (Hellion) ammunition issues

I have a VHS-2 (Hellion). I have been running a lot of Tulammo steel cased .223 through the rifle. I have experienced many failures to feed. The FTF's occur 2 to 3 times per 30 round PMAG full of Tulammo. I have not experienced this issue with brass .223 and 5.56. I have not tried any other steel cased ammo. My gas setting is on normal. The rifle has also been cleaned and the issue still presents itself.

I am guessing that the Tulammo is not potent enough ensure reliable function. I am curious if anyone else has experienced this issue with their VHS-2?

2023.03.19 05:04 EthosTheAllmighty 「VHS」

Namesake: [ https://youtu.be/QuqM1GyLWh8 ] VHS - an album by Castlebeat
Stand Cry: 'V! H! S!' [It basically yells each letter of it's name]
Stand Appearance: Vaugly humanoid from the waist up, made of black and grey plastic/vinyl similar to old fashioned VHS players. It also has a slot in it's chest to play VHS tapes, although this is mostly used for musical purposes and had little to no effect unless someone's weakness is rock music or something. The head is made of the same black plastic, but instead of a mouth it has a rectangular covered speaker system. The eyes are shielded behind clear 'plastic', and the eyes themselves are identifyable by two circles containing a 'play' symbol [right eye] and 'pause' symbol. It also has a white stripe going from it's visor to all the way down it's back. From there, it branches into multiple technicolor lines that go down it's arms, with 'cool' colors going down the left arm and 'warm' colors going down the right arm, both spiraling until they meet the wrist, where the branches straighten out and go down the back of it's hands and fingers. From the waist down, it has no legs, instead having a 'mist' tail similar to how a lot of stereotypical Genies look. The mist is dark, having occasional glitches that cause it to jerk around uncontrollably. This has no effect on the mobility of the Stand.
Stand Type: Object Bound [It can bind to any VHS compatable device, and is currently bound to a boombox the User always has over their shoulder]
Stand User: TBD
Stand Ability: It can rewind time within a maximum of 30 meter bubble. Anything that attempts to enter the bubble while time is being reversed is unable to, and if a person or object is forced out of the bubble when they get reversed, they return to normal. The User can exit the bubble at any point and re-enter as well. Only the User is able to move freely while inside of the bubble, and can actually attack if they so please. This doesn't do anything but emotional damage, however, as wounds inflicted in the bubble are removed almost instantly and will not exist post bubble. All Stand Users retain their memories while being reversed, including the memories of being forced to go backwards in time. This ability is well suited for 'second chances' or creating an impenetrable barrier in case of emergency, however stating in it for longer than 45 seconds is a bad idea, as by then all light, gravity and air have left the bubble creating a literal void or piece of space. When this happens, deactivating the bubble will have a similar effect to The Hand when it removes air, and sucks anything loose nearby towards the center violently. The User is not immune to these effects. The user calls this a 'Time Bmob', and creating smaller Bubbles not only can make a wall of solid air, but if left alone for long enough and deactivated can have some deadly results. The smallest these Time Bmobs can go before becoming useless is about the size of a baseball, or around 2.5 inches in diameter. They are very easy to spot, though, even to non Stand Users.
Stand Stats:
Power: B
Speed: C
Range: B
Durability/Staying Power: B
Precision: B
Potential: C

2023.03.19 02:10 uruythiel [TOMT] [MOVIE] Old animation about a girl living in the woods, her father is some kind of ranger and they fight with poachers?

I don’t think I got the plot right, I remember she had befriended animals and they would need saving from some old castle. It was on VHS, I don’t know if it was only one movie or more. The animation wasn’t 3D but old style hand drawn. 1990-2005?
The opening scene was her washing her dog/puppy outside with a lot of bubbles.

2023.03.18 17:15 OneThatNoseOne From being a doubter, I am starting to believe more and more that the anti-crypto bank-related theories have real merit

The FDIC decided to close Signature Bank because they represent “extraordinary risk”. Signature representatives claim that the FDIC shuttered their door due to a anti-crypto stance. What is at least somewhat interesting is, Barney Frank who sat on their board, is an ex-Congressman, and was one of the two men responsible for overhauling the US banking system post-2008. Frank asserts that regulators targeted the bank to send an “anti-crypto message.” He also spoke about his further post-2008 proposals, as part of the Frank-Dodd act it is inferred, that would have protected more depositors and prevented this situation we find ourselves in today once again, but these proposals did not pass in Congress. The irony is that the exact measures that the Fed, Treasury and FDIC have taken today are exactly what he proposed over a decade ago. I’d think this is the guy to know something about something.
Flash-forward to today, the CEO of JP Morgan had requested a meeting with Fed Jerome Powell and Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen. This meeting occurred where they “brainstormed ideas”, with some input from the FDIC head as well. Can you imagine the heads of the FDIC, Treasury and Federal Reserve responding to a request for and hopping on a call to “brainstorm ideas” with anyone in crypto?
Now I understand this is a bit unfair. The fiat banking system is indeed critical to the economy, but it understates either enormous power and influence, or some perverse incentive for regulators.
What does dig at me though, is the dozens of articles I’ve had to dig through to find that fact reports that JP Morgan, the Fed, Treasury and FDIC did have effectively a closed door meeting, that was all requested by JP Morgan. It just stinks.
Now out of their “brainstorming”, Bank of America, Citigroup, JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo are each depositing $5 billion in First Republic, the banks announced in a statement. Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley are depositing $2.5 billion each for a total of 30B or so. These deposits are supposedly to be treated like regular deposits, but we know that is 99.9% probably not true. Big banks are going to ensure priority on thor deposits.
Then there was the initial framing of bank failure as crypto’s fault, until they backpedalled when the public who seem still enraged from 2008, just weren’t buying it. Also, the near-collapse of First Republic and the cracking pressure on other non-crypto-friendly banks was just making it clear that wasn’t true. Besides that, buys in the crypto market are making it clear that media would probably just end up alienating their audience.
And then there’s the fact that the bailed out First Republic was said to be in a very similar situation like Signature Bank if not worse, but Signature was closed and First Republic was rescued. Interesting choice. Of course, there are the allegations that Signature asked Signature to stop crypto activity but frankly that is a fairly weak substantiation.
Now, we are seeing banks borrow record highs of 164B from Fed backstop facilities, which do actually come at some cost, which implies that there are actually a lot of stressed banks, probably somewhere close to the position of where Signature and First Republic were. Maybe, it is just a coincidence that Signature was the one that happened to fail first and also happened to be a crypto-friendy bank, even though if it were only given just just one more working day until Monday thereabout, with all the facilities by the FDIC, Treasury and Fed to sure up banks they would have almost absolutely pulled through. This is assuming they would have even failed without forced closure at all.
And I don’t think I even need to start on anything the SEC has done. Meanwhile banks get away with slaps on the wrist from the SEC after their several violations and frauds a year quota, still usually at a profit from the fraud or violation’s returns after losses from the fine.
Regulators aside, U.S. legislators demanded details on American banks’ connections to cryptocurrency in a letter to Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell back in December. Democratic senators Tina Smith of Minnesota and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts both specifically mentioned Signature Bank and Silvergate..in their warning about the connections between traditional banks and cryptocurrency. Ironically, it was the same Elizabeth Warren who to repeal 2018 rollback of critical Dodd-Frank protections from 2018. In yet another twist of irony, Warren again wrote a letter to seek answers for the Signature Bank collapse, which in reality, was a forced closure rather than a collapse but again the fact that it was a closure rather than a collapse is a key detail being omitted by the majority of news outlets.
On the point of news outlets, I also recently made a post about a very “pro-crypto” and/or pro-decentralization article by Forbes, that also held government at fault for the current banking collapse, and how the Forbes magically backpedalled days later, and change the article to something that remove the blame on government and regulators.
At this point, you’d have to be illogical to at least dismiss the possibility of serious foul play, if not outright manipulation and abuse of power.
