2023.05.25 17:48 nksdabomb I made a timeline of events based off of podcasts & WWHL/VPR details.

Please feel free to correct me if any details are wrong. I literally whipped this up at work this morning. Also worth noting, some info was featured on the "extra footage" episode of the reunion on Peacock, the Call Her Daddy podcast Ariana was on, WWHL and VPR episodes. And lastly, anytime "Tom" is used, assume I'm talking about Sandoval.

Beginning of 2022 - Tom tells Andy during 1:1 this is around the time he starts having feelings for Raquel. 🧐 🤨
Mid April (at Coachella) – Allegedly, Tom tells Raquel that he and Ariana are in an open relationship. Raquel tells others, and it gets back to Scheana, who tells us this at the reunion. Rumors start swirling that Raquel and “Tom” were seen kissing at Coachella. It’s assumed to be Schwartz, but little did we know. 😠
Sometime in July – Schwartz tells us at the reunion Tom confided to him that he and Ariana are having problems. He's setting the narrative.

2023.05.25 14:54 kittehgoesmeow What A Day: Soft Target by Julia Claire & Crooked Media (05/24/23)

"They're living on planet crazy, and I don't frankly want to be on that same planet with them because they've lost their minds." - Former Arizona GOP candidate for governor Kari Lake, perhaps projecting just a tad after losing yet another legal challenge to the election she definitively lost.

The Death Ceiling

With a little over a week left until the government runs out of money, defaults on its debts, and sends the global economy into a tailspin, Republicans in Congress have seemingly unified to ensure that happens.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen them pull this shit.
President Biden has built his entire career on “reaching across the aisle” to compromise and “get things done.” But, with all due respect to our guy, what good can come of compromise when one side is saying “Raise the debt ceiling” and the other side is saying, “We’re gonna shoot you in the head,”?

Look No Further Than Crooked Media

What happens when a mysterious stranger comes to town, with a wild idea that weed can solve all of the city's problems That's the question of Dreamtown: The Story of Adelanto - Crooked’s newest podcast and an official Selection at this year's Tribeca festival. Dreamtown is the zany but true story of one down on its luck city in the Southern California desert, and the scrappy - sometimes morally dubious - cast of characters determined to reinvent it.

Under The Radar

It has been one year since the devastating mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, TX, and many of the victims’ families are still searching for answers. A Washington Post investigation found that law enforcement’s deadly decision to wait more than an hour to confront the gunman was not solely the fault of the former chief of the school district’s police force. It was also caused by the inaction of an array of senior and supervising law-enforcement officers who had direct knowledge that the shooting was taking place inside the classrooms, but did not intervene. Those officers remain on the job in the area to this day. The Post reviewed dozens of hours of police body-camera video footage, as well as post-shooting interviews with officers and other resources, and found at least seven officers who stalled even as the evidence that children were still in danger became incontrovertible. Top state law-enforcement and government officials promised to hold all those responsible for the 77-minute delay accountable, but all of the officers in question remain employed by the same agencies they worked for last year. The Texas Department of Public Safety cleared almost all investigations into six officers for wrongdoing, and the department’s chief, Col. Steven McCraw, who said he would personally resign if his agency had failed Uvalde, still insists it did not. Only four of the almost 200 officers who responded from state and local law-enforcement agencies were fired in the wake of the tragedy. Nineteen children and two teachers were murdered one year ago today, and they deserve closure they have not yet received.

What Else?

In an award acceptance speech at the American Law Institute, Chief Justice John Roberts said on Tuesday night that he is “confident” the Supreme Court will resolve its ethics issues and regain public trust that it “adheres to the highest standards of conduct.” Lol, sure.
The House voted to overturn president Biden’s student debt relief plan, with Reps. Jared Golden (D-ME) and Marie Glusenkamp Pérez (D-WA) joining all Republicans in supporting the GOP resolution.
Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) launched his presidential campaign in disastrous fashion on Twitter Spaces with his pal Elon Musk. Like anvilles-falling-out-of-the-sky-level calamity.
Former U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been—once again—referred to the police by government officials to assess accusations that he may have further violated coronavirus regulations. Johnson was fined last year while still in office for breaking a bunch of Covid rules in 2020 as part of a series of scandals that brought down his administration.
Following a report about Iran’s new underground tunnel system near a nuclear enrichment facility, the head of the country’s nuclear program insisted that the government would cooperate with international inspectors on any “new activities.”
Meta executed the last round of a three-part series of layoffs today. Since March, the company has eliminated 10,000 roles after laying off 11,000 employees last fall.
A United Nations migration agency announced on Wednesday that fighting between Sudan’s military and paramilitary forces has displaced over 1.3 million people.
Special counsel Jack Smith is wrapping up his criminal investigation into whether or not disgraced former president Donald Trump stole classified White House documents and then took them to his Mar-a-Lago home. Real mystery there!
Gov. Roy Cooper (D-NC) declared a state of emergency for North Carolina’s public education system due to “extreme legislation” being pushed by the state’s GOP lawmakers who plan to “starve public education” through further tax cuts and funding increases for private school vouchers.
The United States has announced nearly $524 million in additional humanitarian aid for the Horn of Africa in an effort to address some of the extreme effects of climate change and the region’s worst drought in 40 years.
Queen of Rock and Roll Tina Turner passed away today at age 83.

You Gotta Be Fucking Kidding Me

After rolling out its Pride Collection at the beginning of May, retail giant Target has decided to kowtow to a bigoted right-wing mob by removing some of its products from stores. The company said in a statement that since introducing the collection, “we’ve experienced threats impacting our team members’ sense of safety and wellbeing while at work.” In other words, increasingly violent right-wing bigots have been throwing the merchandise on the floor, vandalizing stores, and harassing or even physically assaulting Target employees. The merchandise Target pulled from its shelves and website included items with slogans like “cure transphobia not trans people.” Target has been celebrating Pride Month with dedicated collections for over a decade. Framing the issue as the Pride merchandise putting Target employees in danger, rather than bigoted psychopaths putting everyone in danger, is a dangerous (and cowardly!) precedent to set. The problem is violent, hateful (let’s be honest) Trump supporters, not a tote bag that says “too queer for here.” Historically, giving in to violent extremists has [checks notes] not worked out.

2023.05.25 02:30 zhoq Don Quixote - Volume 1, Chapter 47

Of the strange and wonderful manner in which Don Quixote de la Mancha was enchanted, with other remarkable occurrences.
Prompts:
1) We part with all the side characters apart from the priest, the barber, and the officers. Now that we are finally leaving the inn behind us, what are your thoughts, looking back, on all the subplots we were treated to?
2) Don Quixote is now himself a prisoner, and a curious traveller asks about him -- a swapping of the roles from the old prisoners episode. What do you make of this, and are there more parallels?
3) What did you think of Sancho seeing through the priest and barber’s disguises, and refusal to believe there is really an enchantment?
4) What did you think of the canon’s tirade about books of chivalry?
5) Favourite line / anything else to add?

2023.05.23 21:05 squidamoungus Possible relocation!

Hi everyone! I’m making this post because my husband has recently started looking into a job opportunity at the China Lake Base. He is getting out of the Navy this year and we are looking for our next place we will call home! I have dug through the various posts similar to this, but am still left with some questions.
  1. I know he will be able to get a job, but it seems the employment market is slim. I currently work in HR, are they’re many opportunities? I had considered remote jobs but also read the internet is not good out there so not sure what the best route is?
  2. road conditions/drivers? My husband drives a lowered car and wasn’t sure if it would be a car that wouldn’t do well if the roads aren’t great. Plus always nice to know how the drivers are?
3.in looking for places to live it seems like there’s a lot but not all at the same time. We are looking to be close to base and not spend an arm and a leg. What are the best apartments in that area? Anywhere to avoid?
  1. what all do you do for fun? Seems like there’s a ton of outdoory activities, like hiking and biking. How often do you find yourself going to LA, Vegas, or Bakersfield?
  2. anything you’d wish you’d known before moving there?
  3. Is it hard to adjust to the heat? We’re coming from FL, so it’ll be a totally different type of heat. I’m originally from Colorado.
We’re both in our mid/late 20’s no children, just us two and our fur babies. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

2023.05.21 22:16 rephlexi0n Lies from Below the Shadows

The pit, the abyss, it was always there. At least, as far as I can remember. The first time I heard its call, it was subtle, almost unnoticeable. My mother was reading her pick-and-choose verses from the book, looking back up at me after each reading with an expectant look in her eyes. She tried so hard to belittle me, scolding me on how wrong it was to like men, but I was never swayed. Still, the call grew stronger every time she sat me down for her dogmatic ramblings, but it would only show itself to me later on in life.
Not once did I believe she became a Christian in good faith. Way I see it, she only did so as a way to excuse her more toxic behaviours. It’s no wonder I got into my first real relationship during college, since it was the first time I was really free from her endless remarks on my so-called “dirty ways”.
I don’t know exactly what went down in the time I was away, but after dropping out of engineering and coming back home my parents were already living apart with divorce papers in order. And, like a pattern, propagating in time, Eric told me that this - us - wouldn’t work out. My attachment blinded me to how shallow Eric was. He never said anything outright, but it was obvious how he saw me as lesser than himself.
My mum said that if, after finishing my engineering course, I still wanted to pursue carpentry, then I would have the skills required. I guess she hoped I’d set my focus on greater horizons, but it didn’t help me achieve anything.
It was better, living with just my dad. He helped me through it all, but it’s always such a slippery rut I’ve found myself in. I still dreamed of being a carpenter, but even he could see that I wasn’t in the right state of mind to start a whole business. We ended up deciding that I would apply for some bog-standard transient jobs with the aim of saving up money for a carpentry course.
That never really happened. At 19, I started working at an office, spreadsheets, emails, that kind of stuff. Four years later, dad first started showing signs of early-onset dementia. At 54. It’s such a hopeless feeling to watch your father degenerate into a confused mess, and looking back I think it would’ve been better if he was struck by a heart attack.
After two more years, I was up one raise and down everything else. It was January when the pit first revealed itself to me, a late weekend night of remote overtime, the only way I could afford the ever-rocketing living costs.
The work was harsh, mind-numbing, and I kept having to go back to fix mistakes, over and over, my tired mind fucking it up, as it always did. My feet were cold to the point where I could barely feel them, even when I tried moving and wiggling my toes around. I knew I was moving my feet, but there was no feeling.
I looked down to see that, where the navy carpet had been, sat a circular hole in the floor. Almost perfect, but not. A gaping pit, walls of masterfully carved black stone, that descended into thick blankets of darkness. I forcefully pushed myself away from the desk, tumbling off my chair, then crawled over to the edge of the hole. As I peered over the crevice, the only sound was a low breeze. A cold earthen breath I imagined blowing throughout the tunnels of a cave.
You know that feeling? The call of the void? The subtle tug toward one step into nothing. I felt it. Only, the rejection of the idea that usually followed just wasn’t there. It didn’t scare me, only continued to pull me in. Gazing down into it, the knots in my stomach, pulled tight by the years, came loose. An unrestrained warmth took over my body as the pit seemed to strip away the weight on my heart, accepting the burden for itself.
Before the thought of toppling into the abyss took over entirely, my phone buzzed on the desk, breaking my trance. It was Eric.
“Eric? What’s up, man. Why are you calling so la-”
“Stop with the messages, Porter. I get you’re sad and all but can you, like, take it somewhere else? I’m with someone else now and I don’t want you stirring up any shit.”
I looked up to the shelves above my desk for a moment. At the picture I had of Eric and myself at college. It was pathetic, years had passed but I still couldn’t let go.
“Hello? Tell me you understand.”
I brought myself back and replied,
“Yeah. Um, sorry, Eric. Just hoped we might be able to stay friends at least.”
“Well, not if you go on like this. Thanks, I guess.”
He hung up, leaving me standing there like an idiot. Well, that I was. The silence that replaced his voice rang in my ears, mocking me, and when I looked back down to the floor, the hole was gone. It left an emptiness in my chest that could only be made whole again by looking down into that dark abyss.
The gentle breeze from that pit followed me. I heard it inside, outside, day or night, sometimes loud and present, other times so distant I thought it was just the wind. Not really an earworm, though, it felt more like a reminder, making sure I didn’t forget about the tunnel.
Later that week I was in for work. Only half an hour after getting in, Dennis - my manager - called me into his office. Some bullshit about underperforming, I wasn’t really listening to be honest. I rightfully disagreed, not out loud. I’d been giving as much effort to the work as I could at the time. He won’t be reading this, so fuck you Dennis. Your job is to manage, not to call in anyone you can get, and sneer down your nose at them. Asshole.
I nodded to whatever he said, and left his office. My stomach churned, what was I meant to do? Work harder than I already was? I excused myself to the toilet, needing to steady myself. A spiral was already corkscrewing its way down my spine.
I locked myself in one of the stalls and let my forehead rest against the door. Trying to calm your nerves can make things worse when you’re on a tight schedule - how long could I stay here while also making sure my papers for the day would be all done by five?
I turned around to see that, in lieu of a toilet, was the pit. How long had it been there, waiting for me? There was no spike of adrenaline. No, dopamine if anything. It’d come back to see me, like it said it would.
The fluorescent buzz began to fade away as I fell to the floor, and so did the smell of floor cleaner and poorly-masked piss. My hands pressed into the cheap, sticky laminate floor as I lowered my face down into the abyss.
The cold whispering of air had changed. It sounded faintly like a whistle, distant but growing clearer. It was… so alluring. A lullaby crafted for me and no-one else. My arms reached down into the hole, pulling me further and further in. The darkness extended deep, deep down - I was on the fifth floor, yet I could see no end to its depth.
In that thick, heavy shadow, something moved upwards. Pale, angular, limbs too numerous and erratic to count. This would be my guide to wherever the pit led, to somewhere better. Peace and tranquillity. Charon is a misunderstood fellow - he only wishes to lead the dead to where they belong.
The melody was clear now. It was bittersweet, like reminiscing on bad choices, but accepting that the past is the past. The words to the tune came from my own mind, and I found myself whispering,
"One step, into the dark,
Light hides just beyond,
No one will know, even dear old pa,
Here is the peace for which you long."
It was right. Who would know, and who would care? My mum, wherever she is, would likely be indifferent, and my dad would soon forget all about me. I clearly wasn’t a valuable asset to the company either, and Eric would be happy to never hear from me again.
As the blurry thing in the pit grew closer, the song grew louder, all else falling away. The gentle breeze whipped up into a galeforce tempest of cold air that seemed to wrap around me like tendrils and pull me in further.
I reached out my hand to meet my guide halfway, when the ear-splitting BANG of the bathroom door jolted me back to reality. Did I really want this? Was it really better on the other side? Whatever that thing was, approaching rapidly, I didn’t want to know. I didn’t want to meet it.
“Porter, you in here? Boss says the papers need to be done and signed by four, so hurry the fuck up, yeah?”
I arched my head back to the stall door and replied,
“Yeah Jim, just a minute. Indigestion.”
The door slammed again, leaving me alone. When I looked back down, I flinched as my head bumped into the toilet bowl, coming off slightly wet from the residue. No pit, nothing. I returned to my desk, and saw upon checking my email a message without any named sender.
COME BACK
That’s all it said. The song played over and over in my head while I stared at those two words. Out of my lips tumbled, “I will,” and I clicked off the email. I tried blocking the sender, more out of curiosity than anything, but there was no sender to block. I managed to finish my workload for the rest of the day and handed it in on time, with no particular gratitude from Dennis or anyone else. No surprise there.
I paid dad a visit that weekend, at the hospice. When I entered his room he was staring listlessly out the window while some old songs fit for a gramophone played from the old radio beside him.
“Hey, dad.”
His head rolled around to look at me side-on.
“Oh, hello there. What time is it?”
I could tell he was only trying to be polite, that he didn’t really know who was talking to him, and changing the subject for that reason.
“It’s a quarter to three. How are you feeling today? I brought you some custard creams.”
He turned around some more to look at me, down at my hands and then back up with a smile.
“These are my favourite, how’d you know?”
The corners of my brow fell and I brought a hand up to block a potential tear.
“I, uh, it’s me, Porter. I’m your son.”
“I… I don’t…”
The look of confusion on his face told me all I needed to know. I’d been able to remind him who I was before, but now it was no use. I was all but lost to him. Was he even aware he had a son? I don’t know. There was desperation in his eyes, but the dementia won over.
I didn’t say anything more. I pulled up a chair next to him and sat, following his gaze out the window to nothing in particular. At least I could give him some company, even if he had no idea who I was. Looking through the smudge-covered glass I could hear that melody, whistling in my ears, and I knew it called to me again.
“What do you do when it seems the only direction you can go is off the edge of a cliff?” I asked.
“Wait. Look around, far and wide, to see if there’s a bridge across. If there’s no bridge, then you better set about building one. Doesn’t have to be rigid neither, just strong enough for one crossing.”
The lucidity in his answer shocked me for a moment, and I understood what he meant, but I also couldn’t grasp why he’d still think that, when he was so lost and hollow like this.
“What if the bridge collapses halfway across?”
“Hm? Bridge?”
I sighed, “never mind.”
I stood, pulled the chair back to the corner, and left dad with his biscuits. Was that it? Had he forgotten all about me? The questions weren’t answered as I walked out of the room. They say you die a second time - when your name is spoken for the last time. If I died that night, I’d have already died twice. Not figuring in the people at work, because fuck them. Dad wouldn’t be any the wiser, and mum wouldn’t care. Nor Eric.
My sleeve was damp by the time I got home, wiping away tears so I could actually see the road. I don’t know why I cared anymore. Perhaps I didn’t want anyone else to get hurt.
I unlocked my front door and went into the house. A cold and empty place that I called home. My whole body ached with anguish as I climbed my way up the dark staircase.
I couldn’t sleep, of course. Why would I be able to? A good night’s rest wouldn’t make dad better. It wouldn’t make Eric come back, and it wouldn’t help me become a carpenter. I couldn’t even cobble the pieces of my life back together, let alone wooden joists or ply sheets.
Slumped in the chair at my desk, I looked up at the shelves above. There was a framed picture of an eight-year-old me with my dad, doing some DIY carpentry on a doorframe, and on the shelf above, a picture of me and Eric at a college party. I loathed the sight of them. They were nothing but painful reminders of what I’d already lost. It was all gone.
I pulled out my phone and went to notes, writing a message to send to Eric. I hoped he was happy with the way things turned out, how he let me go over the pettiest of reasons. Life must be so easy for him, huh? Still, I couldn’t break my attachment. I needed someone to guide me.
I gave up a few sentences in, placing my phone face down on the desk. Hope was evacuating my body rapidly, but in truth, it wasn’t a bad feeling. After all, why should I feel anxious or scared if there was nothing left to worry about? No, it was acceptance. This world was never meant for me.
But, I recognised the feeling. I knew instinctively what it meant. I looked down underneath the desk, but only saw the frayed, blue carpeting. I started cackling hysterically. It was funny. Now, I’d even been abandoned by the pit that had called for me. This was it. My emotions, my dreams, leaving me one last time.
A blast of freezing air poured over my head from above with a loud whoosh, and something wrapped around my throat. It was cold, clammy, and powerful.
The thing grasping my neck began to pull me up off the chair. My legs thrashed wildly, trying to find a foothold, and as I looked up, I saw it. The pit. It hadn’t abandoned me, but in that moment I didn’t want it anymore. A gaunt, pallid arm was reaching out of the darkness, clamping tighter and tighter around my neck, and it was attached to a mass of writhing limbs that wanted nothing but me.
I scraped animalistically at the arm that I hung from, but it was no use. It was a grip of cold steel. I managed to kick a foot up onto the desk enough to give my body some slack, but it would be no use when I was dragged up further. I looked around frantically for something that could help, but the only thing in reach was the picture frame with me and Eric.
Holding onto the bony wrist above me, I reached out with my free hand and grabbed the picture. I brought it up to my face and slammed it into my forehead. Blood erupted and poured down my face, but the glass was shattered. I felt lightheaded, and my feet totally lost footing on the desk, dangling uselessly. Using my teeth I picked out the largest glass shard still left on the picture, then dropped the broken item to the ground. I grasped the shard and I attacked. Slicing, stabbing, maiming the horrid limb that wanted my end.
But the world was fading, and fast. The howls and screeches of the creature above me sounded like they were underwater. I saw the rim of the black stone tunnel pass in front of me, falling away to reveal only cold and dark.
I can’t go. Not yet. There’s things I need to do, god, give me another chance.
I don’t know how far I was dragged into the abyss, but hand’s grip weakened, and it let go with a rage-filled wail. I didn’t fall back into my room though, I just kept falling. The darkness twisted and swirled, shaping into visions of those taken victim by the pit. Those found dead with no clear motives - at least, none that could be understood by the living. I saw my father lying on his bed, drool leaking from the corner of his mouth, unaware of the gaping hole waiting for him just beneath the bedframe. I screamed, then passed out.
I woke up gasping on the floorboards of my bedroom, lying on top of broken glass and dried blood. I shot up to a sitting position and looked above me. The ceiling was unbroken in its off-white mundanity. The pit was gone, and so was its call.
My body fell back to the floor, sobbing and heaving in exasperation. I was alive, somehow. Face all cut up, neck raw and bruising, palm lacerated messily, but alive. My flame had almost been snuffed out, but there was so much wax left in my candle. It couldn’t go out yet, not until I saw what there was after it all melted away.
I looked down at the broken picture frame. Eric’s face stared back in a sneer, and I stood up and stomped on it until it was nothing more than split wood and torn paper. I needed him as much as he needed me. Dad needed me though. Even if he forgot who I, who he was, I had to stick with him until the end. I couldn’t just leave without him.
I’m looking out the window at the first rays bursting from the horizon. Their warmth spills across my face, and with the warmth is calm. Different to the calm brought on by total loss of hope. Because there is hope. I don’t know what for, but the fact that it’s there is all I need.
If the pit calls to you, please think about what you’re doing. It lies. There’s no light past the shadows. It stays dark, and cold, and there is no salvation. I can’t claim to know what the thing down there wants, truly, but it doesn’t care about you.
Sitting here now, hell… the sunrise looks just a little bit prettier than before.

2023.05.19 16:17 rephlexi0n Lies from Below the Shadows

Go support this story on NoSleep :)
The pit, the abyss, it was always there. At least, as far as I can remember. The first time I heard its call, it was subtle, almost unnoticeable. My mother was reading her pick-and-choose verses from the book, looking back up at me after each reading with an expectant look in her eyes. She tried so hard to belittle me, scolding me on how wrong it was to like men, but I was never swayed. Still, the call grew stronger every time she sat me down for her dogmatic ramblings, but it would only show itself to me later on in life.
Not once did I believe she became a Christian in good faith. Way I see it, she only did so as a way to excuse her more toxic behaviours. It’s no wonder I got into my first real relationship during college, since it was the first time I was really free from her endless remarks on my so-called “dirty ways”.
I don’t know exactly what went down in the time I was away, but after dropping out of engineering and coming back home my parents were already living apart with divorce papers in order. And, like a pattern, propagating in time, Eric told me that this - us - wouldn’t work out. My attachment blinded me to how shallow Eric was. He never said anything outright, but it was obvious how he saw me as lesser than himself.
My mum said that if, after finishing my engineering course, I still wanted to pursue carpentry, then I would have the skills required. I guess she hoped I’d set my focus on greater horizons, but it didn’t help me achieve anything.
It was better, living with just my dad. He helped me through it all, but it’s always such a slippery rut I’ve found myself in. I still dreamed of being a carpenter, but even he could see that I wasn’t in the right state of mind to start a whole business. We ended up deciding that I would apply for some bog-standard transient jobs with the aim of saving up money for a carpentry course.
That never really happened. At 19, I started working at an office, spreadsheets, emails, that kind of stuff. Four years later, dad first started showing signs of early-onset dementia. At 54. It’s such a hopeless feeling to watch your father degenerate into a confused mess, and looking back I think it would’ve been better if he was struck by a heart attack.
After two more years, I was up one raise and down everything else. It was January when the pit first revealed itself to me, a late weekend night of remote overtime, the only way I could afford the ever-rocketing living costs.
The work was harsh, mind-numbing, and I kept having to go back to fix mistakes, over and over, my tired mind fucking it up, as it always did. My feet were cold to the point where I could barely feel them, even when I tried moving and wiggling my toes around. I knew I was moving my feet, but there was no feeling.
I looked down to see that, where the navy carpet had been, sat a circular hole in the floor. Almost perfect, but not. A gaping pit, walls of masterfully carved black stone, that descended into thick blankets of darkness. I forcefully pushed myself away from the desk, tumbling off my chair, then crawled over to the edge of the hole. As I peered over the crevice, the only sound was a low breeze. A cold earthen breath I imagined blowing throughout the tunnels of a cave.
You know that feeling? The call of the void? The subtle tug toward one step into nothing. I felt it. Only, the rejection of the idea that usually followed just wasn’t there. It didn’t scare me, only continued to pull me in. Gazing down into it, the knots in my stomach, pulled tight by the years, came loose. An unrestrained warmth took over my body as the pit seemed to strip away the weight on my heart, accepting the burden for itself.
Before the thought of toppling into the abyss took over entirely, my phone buzzed on the desk, breaking my trance. It was Eric.
“Eric? What’s up, man. Why are you calling so la-”
“Stop with the messages, Porter. I get you’re sad and all but can you, like, take it somewhere else? I’m with someone else now and I don’t want you stirring up any shit.”
I looked up to the shelves above my desk for a moment. At the picture I had of Eric and myself at college. It was pathetic, years had passed but I still couldn’t let go.
“Hello? Tell me you understand.”
I brought myself back and replied,
“Yeah. Um, sorry, Eric. Just hoped we might be able to stay friends at least.”
“Well, not if you go on like this. Thanks, I guess.”
He hung up, leaving me standing there like an idiot. Well, that I was. The silence that replaced his voice rang in my ears, mocking me, and when I looked back down to the floor, the hole was gone. It left an emptiness in my chest that could only be made whole again by looking down into that dark abyss.
The gentle breeze from that pit followed me. I heard it inside, outside, day or night, sometimes loud and present, other times so distant I thought it was just the wind. Not really an earworm, though, it felt more like a reminder, making sure I didn’t forget about the tunnel.
Later that week I was in for work. Only half an hour after getting in, Dennis - my manager - called me into his office. Some bullshit about underperforming, I wasn’t really listening to be honest. I rightfully disagreed, not out loud. I’d been giving as much effort to the work as I could at the time. He won’t be reading this, so fuck you Dennis. Your job is to manage, not to call in anyone you can get, and sneer down your nose at them. Asshole.
I nodded to whatever he said, and left his office. My stomach churned, what was I meant to do? Work harder than I already was? I excused myself to the toilet, needing to steady myself. A spiral was already corkscrewing its way down my spine.
I locked myself in one of the stalls and let my forehead rest against the door. Trying to calm your nerves can make things worse when you’re on a tight schedule - how long could I stay here while also making sure my papers for the day would be all done by five?
I turned around to see that, in lieu of a toilet, was the pit. How long had it been there, waiting for me? There was no spike of adrenaline. No, dopamine if anything. It’d come back to see me, like it said it would.
The fluorescent buzz began to fade away as I fell to the floor, and so did the smell of floor cleaner and poorly-masked piss. My hands pressed into the cheap, sticky laminate floor as I lowered my face down into the abyss.
The cold whispering of air had changed. It sounded faintly like a whistle, distant but growing clearer. It was… so alluring. A lullaby crafted for me and no-one else. My arms reached down into the hole, pulling me further and further in. The darkness extended deep, deep down - I was on the fifth floor, yet I could see no end to its depth.
In that thick, heavy shadow, something moved upwards. Pale, angular, limbs too numerous and erratic to count. This would be my guide to wherever the pit led, to somewhere better. Peace and tranquillity. Charon is a misunderstood fellow - he only wishes to lead the dead to where they belong.
The melody was clear now. It was bittersweet, like reminiscing on bad choices, but accepting that the past is the past. The words to the tune came from my own mind, and I found myself whispering,
"One step, into the dark,
Light hides just beyond,
No one will know, even dear old pa,
Here is the peace for which you long."
It was right. Who would know, and who would care? My mum, wherever she is, would likely be indifferent, and my dad would soon forget all about me. I clearly wasn’t a valuable asset to the company either, and Eric would be happy to never hear from me again.
As the blurry thing in the pit grew closer, the song grew louder, all else falling away. The gentle breeze whipped up into a galeforce tempest of cold air that seemed to wrap around me like tendrils and pull me in further.
I reached out my hand to meet my guide halfway, when the ear-splitting BANG of the bathroom door jolted me back to reality. Did I really want this? Was it really better on the other side? Whatever that thing was, approaching rapidly, I didn’t want to know. I didn’t want to meet it.
“Porter, you in here? Boss says the papers need to be done and signed by four, so hurry the fuck up, yeah?”
I arched my head back to the stall door and replied,
“Yeah Jim, just a minute. Indigestion.”
The door slammed again, leaving me alone. When I looked back down, I flinched as my head bumped into the toilet bowl, coming off slightly wet from the residue. No pit, nothing. I returned to my desk, and saw upon checking my email a message without any named sender.
COME BACK
That’s all it said. The song played over and over in my head while I stared at those two words. Out of my lips tumbled, “I will,” and I clicked off the email. I tried blocking the sender, more out of curiosity than anything, but there was no sender to block. I managed to finish my workload for the rest of the day and handed it in on time, with no particular gratitude from Dennis or anyone else. No surprise there.
I paid dad a visit that weekend, at the hospice. When I entered his room he was staring listlessly out the window while some old songs fit for a gramophone played from the old radio beside him.
“Hey, dad.”
His head rolled around to look at me side-on.
“Oh, hello there. What time is it?”
I could tell he was only trying to be polite, that he didn’t really know who was talking to him, and changing the subject for that reason.
“It’s a quarter to three. How are you feeling today? I brought you some custard creams.”
He turned around some more to look at me, down at my hands and then back up with a smile.
“These are my favourite, how’d you know?”
The corners of my brow fell and I brought a hand up to block a potential tear.
“I, uh, it’s me, Porter. I’m your son.”
“I… I don’t…”
The look of confusion on his face told me all I needed to know. I’d been able to remind him who I was before, but now it was no use. I was all but lost to him. Was he even aware he had a son? I don’t know. There was desperation in his eyes, but the dementia won over.

I rightfully disagreed, not out loud. I’d been giving as much effort to the work as I could at the time. He won’t be reading this, so fuck you Dennis. Your job is to manage, not to call in anyone you can get, and sneer down your nose at them. Asshole.
I nodded to whatever he said, and left his office. My stomach churned, what was I meant to do? Work harder than I already was? I excused myself to the toilet, needing to steady myself. A spiral was already corkscrewing its way down my spine.
I locked myself in one of the stalls and let my forehead rest against the door. Trying to calm your nerves can make things worse when you’re on a tight schedule - how long could I stay here while also making sure my papers for the day would be all done by five?
I turned around to see that, in lieu of a toilet, was the pit. How long had it been there, waiting for me? There was no spike of adrenaline. No, dopamine if anything. It’d come back to see me, like it said it would.
The fluorescent buzz began to fade away as I fell to the floor, and so did the smell of floor cleaner and poorly-masked piss. My hands pressed into the cheap, sticky laminate floor as I lowered my face down into the abyss.
The cold whispering of air had changed. It sounded faintly like a whistle, distant but growing clearer. It was… so alluring. A lullaby crafted for me and no-one else. My arms reached down into the hole, pulling me further and further in. The darkness extended deep, deep down - I was on the fifth floor, yet I could see no end to its depth.
In that thick, heavy shadow, something moved upwards. Pale, angular, limbs too numerous and erratic to count. This would be my guide to wherever the pit led, to somewhere better. Peace and tranquillity. Charon is a misunderstood fellow - he only wishes to lead the dead to where they belong.
The melody was clear now. It was bittersweet, like reminiscing on bad choices, but accepting that the past is the past. The words to the tune came from my own mind, and I found myself whispering,
"One step, into the dark,
Light hides just beyond,
No one will know, even dear old pa,
Here is the peace for which you long."
It was right. Who would know, and who would care? My mum, wherever she is, would likely be indifferent, and my dad would soon forget all about me. I clearly wasn’t a valuable asset to the company either, and Eric would be happy to never hear from me again.
As the blurry thing in the pit grew closer, the song grew louder, all else falling away. The gentle breeze whipped up into a galeforce tempest of cold air that seemed to wrap around me like tendrils and pull me in further.
I reached out my hand to meet my guide halfway, when the ear-splitting BANG of the bathroom door jolted me back to reality. Did I really want this? Was it really better on the other side? Whatever that thing was, approaching rapidly, I didn’t want to know. I didn’t want to meet it.
“Porter, you in here? Boss says the papers need to be done and signed by four, so hurry the fuck up, yeah?”
I arched my head back to the stall door and replied,
“Yeah Jim, just a minute. Indigestion.”
The door slammed again, leaving me alone. When I looked back down, I flinched as my head bumped into the toilet bowl, coming off slightly wet from the residue. No pit, nothing. I returned to my desk, and saw upon checking my email a message without any named sender.
COME BACK
That’s all it said. The song played over and over in my head while I stared at those two words. Out of my lips tumbled, “I will,” and I clicked off the email. I tried blocking the sender, more out of curiosity than anything, but there was no sender to block. I managed to finish my workload for the rest of the day and handed it in on time, with no particular gratitude from Dennis or anyone else. No surprise there.
I paid dad a visit that weekend, at the hospice. When I entered his room he was staring listlessly out the window while some old songs fit for a gramophone played from the old radio beside him.
“Hey, dad.”
His head rolled around to look at me side-on.
“Oh, hello there. What time is it?”
I could tell he was only trying to be polite, that he didn’t really know who was talking to him, and changing the subject for that reason.
“It’s a quarter to three. How are you feeling today? I brought you some custard creams.”
He turned around some more to look at me, down at my hands and then back up with a smile.
“These are my favourite, how’d you know?”
The corners of my brow fell and I brought a hand up to block a potential tear.
“I, uh, it’s me, Porter. I’m your son.”
“I… I don’t…”
The look of confusion on his face told me all I needed to know. I’d been able to remind him who I was before, but now it was no use. I was all but lost to him. Was he even aware he had a son? I don’t know. There was desperation in his eyes, but the dementia won over.
I didn’t say anything more. I pulled up a chair next to him and sat, following his gaze out the window to nothing in particular. At least I could give him some company, even if he had no idea who I was. Looking through the smudge-covered glass I could hear that melody, whistling in my ears, and I knew it called to me again.
“What do you do when it seems the only direction you can go is off the edge of a cliff?” I asked.
“Wait. Look around, far and wide, to see if there’s a bridge across. If there’s no bridge, then you better set about building one. Doesn’t have to be rigid neither, just strong enough for one crossing.”
The lucidity in his answer shocked me for a moment, and I understood what he meant, but I also couldn’t grasp why he’d still think that, when he was so lost and hollow like this.
“What if the bridge collapses halfway across?”
“Hm? Bridge?”
I sighed, “never mind.”
I stood, pulled the chair back to the corner, and left dad with his biscuits. Was that it? Had he forgotten all about me? The questions weren’t answered as I walked out of the room. They say you die a second time - when your name is spoken for the last time. If I died that night, I’d have already died twice. Not figuring in the people at work, because fuck them. Dad wouldn’t be any the wiser, and mum wouldn’t care. Nor Eric.
My sleeve was damp by the time I got home, wiping away tears so I could actually see the road. I don’t know why I cared anymore. Perhaps I didn’t want anyone else to get hurt.
I unlocked my front door and went into the house. A cold and empty place that I called home. My whole body ached with anguish as I climbed my way up the dark staircase.
I couldn’t sleep, of course. Why would I be able to? A good night’s rest wouldn’t make dad better. It wouldn’t make Eric come back, and it wouldn’t help me become a carpenter. I couldn’t even cobble the pieces of my life back together, let alone wooden joists or ply sheets.
Slumped in the chair at my desk, I looked up at the shelves above. There was a framed picture of an eight-year-old me with my dad, doing some DIY carpentry on a doorframe, and on the shelf above, a picture of me and Eric at a college party. I loathed the sight of them. They were nothing but painful reminders of what I’d already lost. It was all gone.
I pulled out my phone and went to notes, writing a message to send to Eric. I hoped he was happy with the way things turned out, how he let me go over the pettiest of reasons. Life must be so easy for him, huh? Still, I couldn’t break my attachment. I needed someone to guide me.
I gave up a few sentences in, placing my phone face down on the desk. Hope was evacuating my body rapidly, but in truth, it wasn’t a bad feeling. After all, why should I feel anxious or scared if there was nothing left to worry about? No, it was acceptance. This world was never meant for me.
But, I recognised the feeling. I knew instinctively what it meant. I looked down underneath the desk, but only saw the frayed, blue carpeting. I started cackling hysterically. It was funny. Now, I’d even been abandoned by the pit that had called for me. This was it. My emotions, my dreams, leaving me one last time.
A blast of freezing air poured over my head from above with a loud whoosh, and something wrapped around my throat. It was cold, clammy, and powerful.
The thing grasping my neck began to pull me up off the chair. My legs thrashed wildly, trying to find a foothold, and as I looked up, I saw it. The pit. It hadn’t abandoned me, but in that moment I didn’t want it anymore. A gaunt, pallid arm was reaching out of the darkness, clamping tighter and tighter around my neck, and it was attached to a mass of writhing limbs that wanted nothing but me.
I scraped animalistically at the arm that I hung from, but it was no use. It was a grip of cold steel. I managed to kick a foot up onto the desk enough to give my body some slack, but it would be no use when I was dragged up further. I looked around frantically for something that could help, but the only thing in reach was the picture frame with me and Eric.
Holding onto the bony wrist above me, I reached out with my free hand and grabbed the picture. I brought it up to my face and slammed it into my forehead. Blood erupted and poured down my face, but the glass was shattered. I felt lightheaded, and my feet totally lost footing on the desk, dangling uselessly. Using my teeth I picked out the largest glass shard still left on the picture, then dropped the broken item to the ground. I grasped the shard and I attacked. Slicing, stabbing, maiming the horrid limb that wanted my end.
But the world was fading, and fast. The howls and screeches of the creature above me sounded like they were underwater. I saw the rim of the black stone tunnel pass in front of me, falling away to reveal only cold and dark.
I can’t go. Not yet. There’s things I need to do, god, give me another chance.
I don’t know how far I was dragged into the abyss, but hand’s grip weakened, and it let go with a rage-filled wail. I didn’t fall back into my room though, I just kept falling. The darkness twisted and swirled, shaping into visions of those taken victim by the pit. Those found dead with no clear motives - at least, none that could be understood by the living. I saw my father lying on his bed, drool leaking from the corner of his mouth, unaware of the gaping hole waiting for him just beneath the bedframe. I screamed, then passed out.
I woke up gasping on the floorboards of my bedroom, lying on top of broken glass and dried blood. I shot up to a sitting position and looked above me. The ceiling was unbroken in its off-white mundanity. The pit was gone, and so was its call.
My body fell back to the floor, sobbing and heaving in exasperation. I was alive, somehow. Face all cut up, neck raw and bruising, palm lacerated messily, but alive. My flame had almost been snuffed out, but there was so much wax left in my candle. It couldn’t go out yet, not until I saw what there was after it all melted away.
I looked down at the broken picture frame. Eric’s face stared back in a sneer, and I stood up and stomped on it until it was nothing more than split wood and torn paper. I needed him as much as he needed me. Dad needed me though. Even if he forgot who I, who he was, I had to stick with him until the end. I couldn’t just leave without him.
I’m looking out the window at the first rays bursting from the horizon. Their warmth spills across my face, and with the warmth is calm. Different to the calm brought on by total loss of hope. Because there is hope. I don’t know what for, but the fact that it’s there is all I need.
If the pit calls to you, please think about what you’re doing. It lies. There’s no light past the shadows. It stays dark, and cold, and there is no salvation. I can’t claim to know what the thing down there wants, truly, but it doesn’t care about you.
Sitting here now, hell… the sunrise looks just a little bit prettier than before.

2023.05.16 20:06 NoahArk6556 Made first order after being a shopper for 1 year.

I feel am an angel shopper.right now...
On mother's day i being deliver all day in FL, help customer deliver flowers and other.gift to.their mom.
Back home about 5pm to eat dinner with my mom, and think about.maybe i can order flower through insta cart to one of my friend in LA, she.is a single mom with one daughter.
So I made a order taken from ralphs, a guy with 3 years 4000 orders pick up the order, I text to the guy first by saying thank you for taking my order. This is a order to my friend. Just let me know if the flower was out of stock. He just reply ok.
My friend's house is like a apartment, but it's not very big. Just to make things easier, I google my friend's house and take a screen shot on the google map And use the pen mark to circle the building number location and entrance to the apartment. So the shopper won't take much time to finding everything. or confuse.
I send the picture to him and he just reply, ok.
And there is nothing else before he delivered the Order. My friend received the flower and chocolate I order for her. She is very happy and send me the Picture of everything. And I found the flower was not in good condition.
I know it's not the shopper fault For the flower were not in good condition but I don't know what you guys will do. for me, When I shopping For stuff like bananas, avocado flowers. that is not in standard complete seal box or package. I always take a photo and sent to the customer to let them check and make sure this is the condition of.the stuff that they want.
And also every time I start shopping always send a greeting message to the customer first.
Compare myself to this shopper. I feel like I'm an angel

2023.05.15 22:32 Borkoholik First Time Travelling Solo! - Madeira Solo Travel Report

Hey everyone,
Figured I'd write down my thoughts on a few days I spent in Madeira this May (2023).
Accommodation: I was deciding for quite a while what to go for. Hotels seemed a bit too expensive and impersonal. I don't yet feel like going for hostels and everyone seems to have a bad experience with Airbnb (plus it's not that good for the local housing market). Went with a serviced apartment through Booking. Paid about 100 Euros a night and it was located in Funchal near La Vie. I can highly recommend that as a base for your first trip to Madeira solo. Quite close to La Vie with a big grocery store there, as well as some options for fast food if you feel tired and don't want to go downtown to eat out. It's conveniently close to the SAM main bus stop (think it's called Edificio 2000) so you can hop on loads of buses in the Funchal/Eastern Madeira area.
Food, Drink, Experiences: Before I set off I only had plans to see one restaurant as I saw someone on Instagram go to it and I wanted to try out what they had (limpets). It was a decent experience but for me almost all restaurants in Funchal seemed very identical. Waiters standing outside, lots of pictures of food on menus and a similar ambiance. Of course if you went off the Michelin Guide I'm sure you'd find places which would feel more premium/special, but I didn't find a lot of "local gems", bar one I place visited on my last day.
That was Bela 5 Snack Bar, near Zona Velha. The atmosphere was great, it seemed like a tiny tucked-away spot, but the food was really really good, I felt really welcome and other reviews seem to think likewise. I wish I went there a few more times as the meals they had were relatively cheap (8-12 EUR), they had good cheep beer and as I mentioned the food was delicious. Definitely a place I'll go back to. In my hikes I went to a few spots, such as Snack Bar Faisca, Restaurant Portela a Vista and the cafe at Achado do Teixeira. All were great and are definitely good places to stop by.
In terms of drinking and night life, Funchal definitely seemed on the calmer end. I didn't see that many groups of party goers around and I was downtown pretty much every single night as what I saw I really liked. I liked the area around the Flower Market at Av. Arriaga, with plenty of poncha stands opened up until quite late. Barreirinha Bar & Cafe was also a good spot, with plenty of people there drinking poncha/beers and enjoying life.
A word on poncha, it's strong. Enjoyable but strong so take it easy. It's quite sweet so it doesn't feel like you're drinking a lot of alcohol, but in every one I think there's about 40-50ml of 50% rum so it is definitely quite a bit of alcohol.
In terms of social memories/experiences, I met up with this girl who was on Erasmus there, and a few times we went to the beach at 21 R. do Lazareto in Funchal (you can find it on Google Maps as "Path to Praia do Toco"). The walk down and through the rocks is a bit sketchy, but it was really peaceful, a good place to chill with a beer, read a book and try and gather some limpets. Although if you see really small ones leave them alone to let them grow and try to gather only the bigger ones. You can eat them raw or cook them in a bit of olive oil with some garlic, served with lemon juice and crusty bread. (I didn't feel like swimming there as the waves were really quite strong and the rocks seemed very jagged. If I had swimming shoes with a good grip I'd give it a go, as my main worry was decking it whilst getting in/out of the water on the rocks.)
I didn't go to Madeira particularly to meet a lot of people and do a ton of social activities, but those evenings at the beach were certainly a highlight and I made some great memories there :) . Everyone else young I spoke with, either at the aforementioned bars or on hikes I went to spoke very good English and was down to get to know each other a bit.
Hikes: I will talk about transport here too. Can you spend a week in Madeira without renting a cascooter or going on tours? Yes. I managed to do 4 big-ish hikes in 5 days, 3 by bus and one using a transfer company. I did the Levada dos Tornos, Levada do Furado + Vereda dos Balcoes, Pico Arieiro to Pico Ruivo and Vereda Da Ponta De São Lourenco. All were great, very different, all moderately tiring. I wouldn't go on them without at least some fitness or you won't have a good time. Every time the trail goes up or down it's through very steep stairs so it's taxing going both up and down them. I'd start all of them with a lot of water and some snacks, decent shoes and for the Levadas and Pico Arieiro a decent flashlight. I used Pico Transfers for the Picos and I can wholeheartedly recommend them (the sunrise hike, but there were a ton of people at the top there so it got a bit crowded). In terms of other hikes, there are plenty of blogs around if you search "Madeira hikes by public transport"/"Hikes in madeira you can do without a car". Those had up-to date info on how to get around. For navigation on the hikes, AllTrails/Gaia GPS worked well. Oh, and definitely pack a powerbank with you too and plenty of sunscreen!
Overall: It was a great first introduction to solo travel. I both want to do it again and I'd also like to see Madeira again. Funchal would be where I'd base myself, but I'd rent a car probably to see some places in the Northern or Western part of the island. The people were great, the food was too and it wasn't too expensive.
PS: Prepare yourself for some stress arriving/departing as sometimes the winds can get quite strong around the airport and flights might get cancelled, so give yourself a day or two of a buffer for your arrival back/any connections/important things you can't miss.
If you've got any questions for me feel free to ask!

2023.05.11 20:23 boutell New US CCS chargers report for April 2023

Here are all of the new US CCS (Level 3 fast-charging) stations that rolled out in April 2023, according to the Department of Energy. These chargers are suitable for most new EVs on the market, except for:
  1. Tesla drivers who haven't bought the official CCS adapter yet. Certain older Teslas need additional work done to accept the adapter.
  2. Leaf owners like me, and some owners of older cars that also use CHAdeMO. If you drive a Leaf, or an older CHAdeMO car, see my matching post in leaf.
Some of these chargepoints will be "refreshes," e.g. the provider replaced them with faster chargers etc. Some may be incorrect. This report is only as good as the Alternative Fuels Data Center data.
There were 171 CCS charge points added or refreshed in April 2023, which is up from 159 in March. For comparison, there were only 100 new CCS charge points in April 2022. Things are speeding up.
"What about CCS charging at Tesla superchargers?" Tesla is in the process of rolling out their "magic dock" for non-Tesla cars in certain locations. I assume they will start to include this in their reporting to the Alternative Fuels Data Center soon. When they do it should be reflected here.
If you'd like to know about new chargers along your routes right away, or just prefer not to check this list monthly when new openings are rare in your area, I've set up a free service that provides email notifications as soon as they open. You can sign up at evpov.com. Or not! I don't really have a business plan here, I built it to help EV owners like myself.
To streamline this post, multi-chargepoint locations are listed with the number of chargepoints first, so that's why the post is shorter than in previous months.

2023.05.07 15:45 IC2Flier 17 weeks later, I think I finally get the audience reception for The Witch from Mercury

I let the thought marinate in my head, and weeks after posting this rant I think I finally understand why I love tracking Gundam just as much as watching/rewatching it.
See, with most adaptations, you more or less have an idea of what to expect, especially if you've read all of it/finished it and have seen anime from the studio that will adapt them. Look at the hype for Chainsaw Man, Jujutsu Kaisen, One-Punch Man, EIGHTY-SIX, Eminence in Shadow, or Kaguya-sama: there's already an expectation of quality and thoroughness. With anime originals, on the other hand, it's a wait-and-see: will it be weird, will it be a banger, or will it be a franchise-launching meteor? You don't know until you dive in, and even then it's a matter of being in or out after a month depending on where the plot and character dynamics turn.
Gundam, specifically alternate-timeline Gundam, is enjoying the worst of both worlds: it has both a rich, towering legacy to hold up and an unknown "what will this be" risk factor. In the case of The Witch from Mercury, it's a an epic tug-of-war because it's both a brand new world AND an adaptation of at least three texts. That's a lotta strings pulling G-Witch in all three axes of motion, way more than originals or adaptations. And each string exerts enough force that at times Sunrise frays at the seams trying to keep the show together, whether it's in the writing and plotting or animation production.
That's exactly why it's hella fun for me to focus hard on Gundam: on my screen is the result of a weekly struggle juggle to be as many things at once while still being its own person. In a sense, the current reception among audiences is a reflection of the story and character journeys as a whole. And the more theories, reactions, counterpoints and memes I see, the more G-Witch proves to be one of the most thought-provoking new entries of the new decade. You rarely get walls of text in even more intricate shows like Vivy: Flourite Eye's Song, but every anime and Gundam thread is brimming with them. It's an effective show. I shouldn't have been surprised.
Now, I know: WfM kits are selling gangbusters, YouTube replays on GundamInfo averages 400,000 views a week with upwards of 15k watching the premieres. Blue-Ray and DVD sales are also decent from last I checked, and it's clear that even Western audiences are noticing. In terms of numbers that matter, G-Witch is surpassing expectations and has bought Bandai enough leeway to take risks come July of this year. (If anything, those numbers may point to a bigger truism: Gundam Aerial is the most compelling unit ever designed for Gundam. She's her own character, a robot who is as human can be because a human lives in the machine. That is a compelling design and writing decision that adds intangible value and endears a piece of merch to a customer, completing the feedback loop.)
I also know that it hasn't moved an inch on MAL, that it's splitting /m/ and /a/ in pieces and it's non-existent on Anime Corner voting. In some circles, it's dominant. In others, it's like it barely even airs. For one hemisphere, it's the anime to watch. For Westerners, it's still a risky endeavor.
Following Gundam in this anime landscape is a fun sport because it's in a position unlike any other anime franchise on earth, and it's equally rewarding to see a studio deliver something spectacular and harrowing every week despite the odds being stacked against them. Yet you can't help but wish it to perform better, to be DOMINANT a la Star Wars in being all that everyone talks about in a given point in time, because the experience is simultaneously unlike anything else and reverent to what came before.
There's so much more riding on G-Witch than there is Attack on Titan or The Marginal Service, and more forces trying to both keep it together and rip it apart. The fact that it's still a baseline-enjoyable anime is miracle enough. To see it defy my expectations and most "mecha is dead" naysayers as a defiant "We're not done yet!" is something worth admiring.

2023.05.07 15:21 boutell New US CHADeMO chargers in April 2023

Here are all of the new US CHAdeMO (Leaf fast-charging) stations that rolled out in April 2023, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.
There were 112 "new" CHAdeMOs added in April. To put it in perspective, there were 171 CCS chargers added in April. I think the pace of CHAdeMO rollout has stabilized, while the pace of CCS rollout is still increasing. This makes sense given that only Nissan still makes a CHAdeMO car.
Some of these chargepoints will be "refreshes," e.g. the provider replaced them with faster chargers etc. Some may be incorrect. This report is only as good as the Alternative Fuels Data Center data.
We all know that CHAdeMO is a legacy format and will eventually go away, but clearly Nissan and their partners are continuing to support it for the time being. This shouldn't be surprising. After all, you can still buy a new Leaf.
If you'd like to know about new chargers along your routes right away, or reading these monthly reports is just frustrating in your state, I've set up a free service that provides email notifications only when new stations actually open. You can sign up at evpov.com. I built it to help EV owners like myself (especially my fellow Leaf owners). You can pick other plug types as well.
To streamline this post, multi-chargepoint locations are listed with the number of chargepoints first, so that's why the post is shorter than in previous months.

2023.05.06 01:27 Jcorb Just got a job that's fully remote. I have to move soon. Debating my options. Any personal advice?

So, I'm incredibly fortunate to have finally secured a job after having been laid off and (basically) unemployed for about a year. I think this is going to be a great fit, and they've even offered to buy me a work laptop if I feel like I want to travel and work or anything.
Well conversely... okay, this is going to get a little confusing. Please bear with me. For reference, I'm 35.
I originally moved about two months ago, I moved in with friends who offered to let me live with them until I found something (I was expecting to only find in-office work). It's pretty clear they're ready for me to move on now that I have work, so I'm immensely grateful for their help.
Well I had been living with my father, who lives down in FL. My sister also lives down there, and I thought about moving down to Orlando, which is probably 4-5 hours away; close enough to visit over the weekend, but not too close, you know?
But... also, since living back near DC (where I used to live, years ago), I've definitely had much more of a social life I feel like. Only issue is my best friend is going to be moving away soon, so I might lose most of my social life anyways.
So right there, I'm weighing two options; moving to Orlando which is closer to family, or finding someplace near DC, which would be more expensive but I do know some people nearby after my friend moves away.
But then the other thing I'm wondering is... well, I could consider a more dramatic move? I've never been personally, but I've always heard incredible things about the West coast, and part of me suspects it might actually be easier for me to find work (if I ever need to) if I was near a major hub like LA or San Fransisco.
I dunno. I guess this past year, I was just in such a low place, I felt like I'd always made "practical" decisions, but in the end, everything still fell apart. I guess I'm questioning where the line is between choosing what's familiar, being close to people you love, versus just finding your place in the world, or if it even makes a difference? Like I said, I'm 35 and I feel like I should have things sorted out by now, but I guess I still don't feel like I've ever really found "a place where I belong", if that makes any sense. But I also don't know if that's really even a place at all, or if at a certain point, you just need to suck it up and say "I just need to worry about myself, and accept that I'm probably not going to make a ton of friends with similar interests or views"?
