I also ask for your help in providing feedback and answering questions I have about this approach. Your answers will help me and others make better career decisions about AI safety, including how I should proceed with this movement building approach. I am offering cash bounties of $20 for the most useful inputs (see section at the bottom of the post).
If we want to more effectively address problems of AI safety, alignment, and governance, we need better i) shared understanding of the challenges, better coordination of people and resources, and ii) prioritisation.
152 more paragraphs... There is uncertainty about what AI Safety Movement Building is, and how to do it helpfully Uncertainty about AI Safety Movement Building reduces the number of potentially helpful movement builders Having fewer movement builders probably reduces AI Safety contributors, contributions and collective coordination To address the uncertainty and related problems we need a better shared language and shared understanding AI Safety movement builders contribute by helping to start, sustain
** and** scale AI Safety projects AI Safety movement builders start and scale AI Safety projects by contributing ** **human resources :
** ** technical and non-technical professions and skills ** *in * *full-time * *and * *fractional * **capacities. AI Safety Projects generally require many ** **technical
** ** and non-technical professions and skills to start/scale Technical contributions to AI Safety Movement Building are very valuable, but need to be balanced against trade-offs, and may best be made in a fractional capacity
There are relatively few technical experts within the AI Safety community and most are (rightly) focused on doing technical work Many technical experts within the AI Safety should consider fractional movement building Technical novices within the AI Safety community should consider assigning a larger fraction of time to movement building What do technical contributions look like in practice? Non-technical contributions to AI Safety Movement Building can best support AI strategy and AI governance but can also support AI Safety technical work.
Non-technical people may be best suited to movement build for AI strategy and AI governance Non-technical people can also contribute to technical AI safety Non-technical people are in greater supply than technical people, they have lower opportunity costs, and their complementary skills are needed to produce the optimal outcomes from technical contributors and contributions. Non-technical people who are able and willing to contribute to AI Safety should prioritise support technical AI Safety movement building when possible . For some non-technical movement builders, it will make sense to work in a fractional role where only part of one’s time is spent on AI safety work For some non-technical movement builders, it will make sense to work as a generalist across multiple parts of the AI safety community Non-technical people working as experts in AI governance or strategy roles should consider being fractional movement builders What do non-technical contributions look like in practice? Use the three AI Safety Movement building outcome metrics suggested (Contributors, Contributions and Coordination), or something similar, to evaluate progress in AI Safety Movement Building
I think that AI Safety Movement building is doing well for a small community but has significant potential for improvement Determining clear priorities for AI Safety Movement Building is the most important bottleneck to address once we have a shared understanding Fractional movement building seems like the best way to grow the community once it knows if, and how, it wants to grow
It will usually be better for most people in the AI safety community to do fractional movement building than to entirely focus on direct work It will be usually be better for AI safety movement building to focus on growing fractional movement building commitments than full-time movement building commitments I have outlined a basic approach/theory of change - does it seem banal, or flawed? I will pay you for helpful feedback!

In case anyone's a fan of the US animated TV series 'South Park', a recent episode (Season 26, Episode 4, released March 9, 2023) is titled 'Deep Learning', and features AI & Chat GPT themes. (Link here if you want to watch with ads; otherwise it's on HBO Max or Comedy Central streaming services.)
Curious what your reactions are....
Holden Karnofsky has recently shared some reflections on EA and FTX, but they’re spread out and I’d guess that few people have seen them, so I thought it could be useful to collect them here. (In general, I think collections like this can be helpful and under-supplied.) I've copied some comments in full, and I've put together a simpler list of the links in this footnote.
These comments come after a few months — there’s some explanation of why that is in this post and in this comment.

TL;DR: Nigeria bears 10 times the burden of communicable, maternal, neonatal, and nutritional diseases per capita than Colombia, despite both countries having similar health expenditures to combat these diseases. Applying the SNT framework suggests that health interventions are around 10 times more cost-effective in Nigeria even when comparing only the poorest regions within each country.
Chatting with the members of my EA university group in Colombia, I noticed many of them were mainly interested in contributing to problems that affected their home country. Although Colombia is far from being one of the poorest countries in the world, various regions of the country still suffer from similar problems as less developed countries. I thought there might be a chance that we found opportunities with similar cost-effectiveness as those that EA tends to prioritize in the area of health and development.

2023.03.25 07:48 FrustratingBears Kitty won’t stop playing with cables, even with ample appropriate play
Hello fellow cat people! I’ve got a young rescue cat (probably just over a year old) and he’s pretty well-behaved!
Except when he’s in a playful mood with his endless energy… Even if I tire him out with multiple play sessions a day, he still has boundless energy and engages in a lot of solo play (which is good!) The problem is, a lot of his solo play involves… you guessed it… stalking cables. Even non-moving ones.
He doesn’t chew them a LOT, he does sometimes chew them, but it isn’t compulsive so I don’t think it’s pica-related. And when I treat the cables with bitter spray, he stops chewing them but will still swat/claw them.
He has plenty of appropriate rope/string/wire-like toys and I use positive reinforcement when I see him using them.
In my own room, I can cable manage and put guards/bitter spray on cables, but I have roommates and those roommates have significant others and they leave cables out in the common room, which my cat plays with… plus some cables simply can’t be managed completely. He even pulls them out at the socket end sometimes 😭 I can’t pay to replace everyone’s laptop or phone chargers but cables still get left out and it makes me nervous.
Also, even if his initial intent wasn’t to play with cables, if one of his small toys makes its way behind the TV stand, he winds up distracted by the cables and plays with them when he initially set out to retrieve the toy.
How can I fix this behavior? I’m not always home to catch it, but he gets separation anxiety if he is closed in my room while I am at work so I can’t lock him in a cat-proofed room. Thanks!

2023.03.25 07:47 luci450 My Problem with Indian Daily Soaps
Indian daily soaps are the epitome of patriarchy & sexism. It's the same thing every time - A married man child with a girlfriend & a wife who is desperate to prove her worth & be accepted by him & the family that absolutely despise her.
Scene: The father in law "buys" his new wife & his first wife (the MIL) is standing there joining hands begging him. "Mujhse koi galati ho gyi ho toh...". Now our lead is adamant on getting these two back together.
Scene: A husband hosts a funeral for his very alive wife & when some people find out she's alive, her reply is something like - My husband is God (the "pati parmeshwar" line), so I'll accept whatever he gives, love, hate blah blah. & That girl just cries in every scene.
Something new I've started noticing is that they're normalising domestic violence now.
Scene: The FIL is hitting the DIL & wife in front of the entire family & they're just standing there. Someone was even smiling.
Another scene: The DIL made something spicy which the MIL didn't like, so she orders her other DIL to break an egg on her head. I'm not kidding you. This was actually said. They don't go through with this but that's not my point.
I don't know the names of these shows, but I'm aware of it cause my mom is addicted to them. I've spoken to her at length a 100 times on this but she refuses to stop watching such garbage.
Why are such shows being made? There's obviously an audience which consumes such filth but I can't accept the fact that they can't make something better to show on TV. These people watch garbage & normalise pathetic behaviour in their mind & impose this mindset on their children.

2023.03.25 07:36 Direct-Ad-2146 Why Wall-Mount Your TV Above Your Fireplace?
| || | submitted by Direct-Ad-2146 to u/Direct-Ad-2146 [link] [comments]
When it comes to decorating your living room, one of the biggest design challenges can be deciding where to place your television. Many homeowners choose to mount their TV on the wall, but what if your living room has a fireplace? Fortunately, mounting your TV above your fireplace is not only possible, but it can also be a great space-saving solution that adds a stylish focal point to your room. In this article, we'll discuss the benefits of wall-mounting your TV above your fireplace and explore some of the best mounting bracket options. Wall mount tv fireplace
There are several benefits to wall-mounting your TV above your fireplace. First, it can help you save valuable floor space in your living room. With a wall-mounted TV, you don't need to worry about finding a spot for a bulky entertainment center or TV stand. Additionally, mounting your TV above your fireplace can create a sleek, modern look that adds style and sophistication to your living room.
Choosing the Right Fireplace Mounting Bracket
When it comes to mounting your TV above your fireplace, it's important to choose the right mounting bracket. Here are some of the most popular options:
Fixed Wall Mount Bracket: A fixed wall mount bracket is the simplest and most affordable option. It holds your TV in a fixed position and is a good choice if you don't need to adjust the angle or height of your TV.
Tilt Wall Mount Bracket: A tilt wall mount bracket allows you to adjust the angle of your TV up or down. This is a great option if you need to mount your TV higher up on the wall, as it allows you to angle the screen down towards your seating area. Tv mounted to fireplace
Full-Motion Wall Mount Bracket: A full-motion wall mount bracket is the most versatile option. It allows you to adjust the angle, height, and even the distance of your TV from the wall. This is a great option if you have a large room or multiple seating areas.
Tips for Mounting Your TV Above Your Fireplace
Once you've chosen the right mounting bracket, it's important to install it correctly. Here are some tips to help you mount your TV above your fireplace safely and securely:
Make Sure Your Fireplace Can Handle the Weight: Before you start, make sure your fireplace is strong enough to support the weight of your TV and mounting bracket. If you're not sure, consult a professional.
Check Your Viewing Angle: Consider the height of your fireplace and the distance from your seating area to determine the best viewing angle for your TV. You may need to adjust the height or angle of your mounting bracket to get the best view. Flush wall mount brackets
Hide Your Cords: One of the downsides of wall-mounting your TV is that cords and cables can be unsightly. Consider using a cable cover or cord organizer to keep your cords neat and tidy.
Use a Level: Make sure your mounting bracket is level before you start drilling. This will ensure that your TV hangs straight and doesn't tilt to one side.
Mounting your TV above your fireplace can be a great way to save space and add style to your living room. With the right mounting bracket and a little bit of planning, you can create a sleek, modern look that's both functional and stylish. Whether you choose a fixed wall mount bracket, a tilt wall mount bracket, or a full-motion wall mount bracket, make sure to follow these tips to ensure a safe and secure installation.

2023.03.25 07:29 BonelessHS Frost Sorcerer Build/Good Items?
I’m midway through the beta rn (level 16) and I’ve been respeccing a lot just to find out what feels good. Right now I’m basically just spamming hydras and chain lightning for max dps, which feels pretty good. That said, I’ve heard frost builds that spam vulnerability are also super busted. I tried one and frost blades in particular stands out as being a really dope skill but I think my build was poorly built and lacking necessary items.
What abilities should I be investing in for a frost build like this and are there certain items that I need?

2023.03.25 07:24 inigomontoyaaaas Lost my wife and I can't stay alone. I hate it.
My(m27) wife(f26) died in a car crash last month. It's been the worst thing that's ever happened to me, obviously. I've been getting better in some ways but worse in others. I don't know what is wrong with me, but I cannot for the life of me just stay alone. I hooked up with someone I'd met online three weeks after she passed. I don't know what I thought it would do. Maybe fill at least the physical longing, take the edge off the sudden lack of intimacy. But I felt absolutely nothing afterward. I felt so numb and empty and I hated myself for not having any self control. Yet here I am a week later, lonely again and trying to get someone over when I realized what I was doing. I'm trying to figure out how to cope, how to take the edge off. But I don't think there's a healthy way for me to do that. I don't think I can take it mentally but at the same time I can't stand the lack of touch. It's going to drive me insane.

2023.03.25 07:06 BrownTown427 Booking The Implosion Of Death Triangle: Part One
Death Triangle: a name that strikes fear into an opponent’s heart. That could just be because of the individual having a childhood fear of shapes and geometry, but in all likelihood, the main reason is because that name represents three of the best pure wrestling talents on the entire planet. You’ve got the Lucha Brothers Penta and Fenix, two men that have excelled in both tag team and individual settings throughout the various promotions they’ve competed in. And of course you have Pac, a man who’s not only been described as both a king and a bastard, but who also has quite the affinity to hammers.
But unfortunately for the trio, the past few months haven't treated them too kindly. They failed to beat the Elite in the hard-fought Best Of Seven series, losing their Trios Titles in the process, and within that time frame, Pac’s bastard-like tendencies have seemingly increased relative to that of the Lucha Brothers. But that begs the question: how will the next several months go for them after such a rocky start to the year? Let’s find out…
Dynamite (6/14/23): Pac vs. Action Andretti
After having only been seen sporadically since being a part of the losing Best of 7 series team, Pac would look to make an example out of a poor younger talent. As soon as the bell rings, Pac immediately just starts brutalizing Andretti, getting him downed in the corner and repeatedly stomping on his face until the ref has to physically back him off. Unfortunately for the man dubbed Action, he can’t stop Pac’s action for the remainder of the relatively short contest either, eventually having his ribs crushed with a Black Arrow and then being forced to submit to the vicious Brutalizer.
Pac def. Action Andretti via submission tap-out (4:19)
After the match, Pac grabs a mic, pacing around the ring like a madman before he finally begins to speak:
“I’ve gone through moments of isolation before…back in 2020, I was left with nothing but my own thoughts…and now it feels as though it’s happening again. There’s a spark that’s missing…something isn’t right about this year. I need to find somebody new, somebody different… an opponent worth fighting. I want someone who brings meaning to this ring…”
Suddenly, Pac gets cut off, as a very notable theme begins echoing throughout the arena…KAZE NI NARE! IT’S MINORU SUZUKI! Followed closely by Strong Style stablemates El Desperado and Ren Narita, the King slowly walks to the ring, staring a hole through Pac as he does so. However, when Suzuki enters through the ropes, Pac shows no fear, immediately walking towards him and getting right up against his face. The two stare each other down, before Suzuki just uses his shoulder to push him away. In response, Pac moves back and slaps Suzuki in the face! El Desperado looks ready to attack Pac for this, but Suzuki holds him back, smirking at Pac’s blow. When the two move back towards one another, Pac goes for a punch this time, but Suzuki blocks it, before proceeding to chop the soul out of the Bastard’s chest. Pac falls to a knee, Suzuki laughing this time, before a new theme plays throughout the arena…
It’s the Lucha Bros! Penta and Fenix have seen enough of Pac trying to take down Strong Style on his own, coming to the ring to even things at three men apiece. Suzuki looks at the pair, somewhat intrigued, before turning to Desperado and Narita. He motions for them to face Penta and Fenix respectively, and with the stage now set…LET THE ALL OUT BRAWL BEGIN! The six men just start going off on each other, but unfortunately for Death Triangle, Strong Style stands tall after Fenix accidentally hits Penta with a superkick intended for Narita, giving the NJPW trio the chance to take them out individually.
Later in the show, we get the official announcement that this match has been added to the Forbidden Door card, but there’s still so much that can happen in eleven days, and just as it would happen…
Dynamite (6/21/23): Ren Narita vs. Bandido
While Suzuki and Desperado would leave back to Japan until the time of Forbidden Door II, Ren Narita would decide to stay in the United States, traveling to multiple indie promotions to compete in addition to wanting a one-off AEW singles match. And he would get himself a rematch against a man he competed against a few years ago, squaring off against the outlaw known as Bandido. They’re having a strong match, but unfortunately, Pac isn’t one to let go of a grudge too easily. As Narita is recuperating momentarily on the outside, the ref checking on Bandido in the ring, the Bastard comes from the crowd and smashes his hand with a hammer! This clearly weakens Narita, but he tries to fight off the pain, getting back into the ring and squaring up to Bandido. Unfortunately, he can’t quite match the earlier precision he showcased, eventually falling to Bandido’s crazy rope-rebounded German Suplex.
Bandido def. Ren Narita via pinfall (13:43)
After the match, Pac storms the ring, adding more punishment to Narita from what he already incurred during the match. However, Bandido doesn’t look too enthused about Pac’s actions, and he pulls him off Narita. Pac is initially in shock, but as Bandido looks to help Narita up out of respect, the Bastard snaps, attacking Bandido too! He gets in some vicious shots before climbing to the top rope, looking to hit a Black Arrow, but out runs Rey Fenix! He runs to Bandido’s side, looking up at Pac and yelling at him to stop: this is an innocent man! Pac looks angry at the prospect of doing so initially, but after a tense few moments, he climbs down, exiting the ring but having done what he thought was necessary and more.
Forbidden Door II (6/25/23): Death Triangle vs. Strong Style (Minoru Suzuki, El Desperado, and Ren Narita)
After a solid start of matches to that point, the fans in Toronto now get to see what’s sure to be an intense battle given the previous two interactions involving members of these stables. It initially looks like El Desperado will start the match for Strong Style, but after Pac gets in the ring on Death Triangle’s end, Narita enters the ring. Though Desperado is initially confused, once he sees the look in Narita’s eyes, the look of pure, intense anger, he steps out of the ring, giving him the chance to start. Once the bell rings, Pac mockingly yells at Narita, asking him how the hand he shattered is doing. In response, Narita runs at Pac, doing what the Bastard did to Action Andretti a couple weeks prior and immediately getting him downed in the corner. Narita backs up, and Pac, looking up in shock, tags out to Penta, needing an unexpected breather.
After Penta and Narita go at it for a bit, the latter tags out to El Desperado, and after a staredown involving two great wrestlers with absolutely elite-looking masks, they have a rapid back-and-forth sequence, neither quite able to permanently capture momentum. However, with Pac itching to get back in the ring, Penta tags out, and Desperado follows suit, allowing Suzuki to get in the match. Pac and Suzuki move towards each other, Suzuki basically offering Pac to make the first move. The Bastard responds by doing what his opponent did to him a couple weeks ago: chop the living hell out of his chest! Suzuki, expecting a punch, is caught off-guard, looking at Pac with a mix of surprise but also the look of a man who wants to destroy the nearest thing in sight. Suzuki tries to respond with a chop of his own, but Pac dodges it, moving behind Suzuki and picking him up by the waist, leveling him with a German Suplex! Pac starts stomping on the NJPW legend, looking to keep him grounded, but after one kick too many, Suzuki grabs a hold of Pac’s leg. He slowly rises to his feet, Pac trying to punch him down, but once the King has risen, he drops Pac’s leg only to immediately hit him with a vicious chop to the chest thereafter.
As the match continuously progresses, the key looks to be the status of Rey Fenix, as more than ten minutes into the contest, he still hadn’t tagged in. But finally, after Penta manages to gain some separation from Suzuki, he tags in his brother, and Fenix brings a spark of life to Death Triangle. He springboards into the ring, taking out Suzuki with a crossbody and forcing him to tag out to El Desperado. Despite Desperado’s ability, Fenix is able to get the better of him too, getting him grounded with a superkick, and a follow-up moonsault gives him a solid nearfall. Unfortunately, Narita is able to take him down once he comes back in, although after a desperation cutter, Fenix starts crawling back towards his corner. He looks at Penta and Pac, needing to make a decision in the moment about who to tag, and he ends up picking his brother. Pac, however, is enraged, immediately tagging himself in and yelling at Fenix that it’ll be him who brings an end to this match. Unfortunately for Pac, Ren Narita blindsides him, hitting him with a lariat to the back of the neck and causing Pac to send both Penta and Fenix tumbling to the outside. And from there, Narita takes a page out of his stablemate Suzuki’s playbook, locking a Rear Naked Choke on the Bastard! Pac tries to claw, to bite, to kick his way free, but Narita isn’t letting go until Pac taps or passes out…AND HE TAPS OUT!
Strong Style def. Death Triangle (17:09)
After coming up unsuccessful at Forbidden Door II, Death Triangle is left with more questions than answers regarding what’s next for them. And while the Lucha Bros. look primed to move back to the tag division, a tag team gauntlet match being announced for Dynamite with the winner earning a future opportunity at the tag championships that they’ve held once before, Pac’s future appears to be more murky. He found the challenge he was looking for, and yet he came up short…he tapped out…maybe he needs to re-evaluate other things…
Dynamite (7/5/23): Tag Team Gauntlet Match
After a solid opening match to the gauntlet between Top Flight and the Acclaimed, the Martin brothers able to successfully do enough damage to pin Caster and avenge our ears from his raps, the Lucha Brothers are the next team up. While Dante and Darius still turn to their athletic profiles, trying to match Penta and Fenix’s high-flying moves with their own, it’s clear their stamina is drained from competing in two matches in immediate succession. And ultimately, a Fenix superkick to Dante followed by a tag-out to Penta and a Package Piledriver allows the Lucha Bros. to advance.
Lucha Bros def. Top Flight via pinfall to advance in the gauntlet
Next up in the gauntlet is the Gunn Club, and they storm the ring with a purpose. They lost the tag titles to FTR, and they would love it if they could earn their shot at redemption. Despite having the freshness advantage though, Penta does well to fend off Colten, managing to keep the tides in their favor. And although the Gunns manage to get in some solid offense over the middle portion of the matchup, the ending sees Fenix find a hot streak, hitting the always ridiculous Black Fire Driver on Austin to keep their gauntlet goals alive.
Lucha Bros def. Gunn Club via pinfall to advance in the gauntlet
But for the final team in the gauntlet, it’s going to be quite an interesting test, with Aussie Open making a surprise appearance! They look to represent United Empire well, and they start the match off hot, quickly taking Fenix off his feet and keeping him isolated. However, the Lucha Brothers just refuse to die, and near the end, Penta goes on an absolute tear, eventually managing to secure him and Fenix the win with a Package Piledriver on Mark Davis.
Lucha Bros def. Aussie Open via pinfall and survive the gauntlet to earn a future Tag Team Championship match
After the match, the AEW Tag Team Champions FTR make their way to the ring, and they extend a handshake offering towards their next challengers. Fenix is quick to shake Harwood’s hand, but Penta hesitates momentarily before shaking Wheeler’s. And shortly thereafter, the scene pans to Pac watching the interaction on a backstage TV, looking perturbed at what transpired.
Fyter Fest Night Two (7/19/23): Lucha Bros. vs. FTR (c) - AEW Tag Team Championships
With the stage having been set for these two teams to do battle, we now finally get to what’s sure to be a classic of a match. It wasn’t incredibly long ago that these duos battled for the AEW Tag Team Titles, having tested each other at Full Gear of 2021, but now the roles are reversed, with FTR as the fighting champions and the Lucha Brothers as the challenging contenders. And with both teams arguably only getting better since that point, the fans in attendance are hyped to see arguably AEW’s two most talented in-ring teams do battle.
The match starts off slowly, both teams trying to get a feel for each other with more technical, ground-and-pound based offense. However, as the match progresses, like any good musical composition, the dynamics slowly begin to rise. Penta and Fenix begin incorporating increasingly impressive, high risk-high reward maneuvers. Some of these pay off, such as a beautiful Canadian Destroyer by Penta to Dax on the outside, but others give the momentum right back to FTR, like a missed Phoenix Splash by Fenix. And for every minute the match reaches without a finish in sight, the commentators remark on just how wild it really is:
Half an hour with no finish? Ok, this is getting up there with some of AEW’s best tag team matches ever.
45 minutes with no finish? How are these men still fighting? Where are they getting this energy?
59 minutes with no finish? AHHHH, ONLY A MINUTE LEFT!
60 minutes with no finish? THE MATCH HAS ENDED IN A TIME-LIMIT DRAW! WHAT A CRAZY MOMENT!
Despite both team’s best efforts to put the other team down, both have just too much resiliency for their own good, fighting through the attrition and drained stamina en route to neither team coming out victorious. And it’s especially disappointing for the Lucha Brothers, as after a Fenix Driver on Harwood, Rey fell away from Dax, unable to get the cover on him in time and possibly costing them the titles. After the match, Pac comes out, helping Penta and Fenix up. FTR tries to extend another sign of respect towards the Lucha Brothers, but Pac pushes his partners back, not letting them even think about it.
Lucha Bros. and FTR fight to a time-limit draw (60:00)
Fight For The Fallen (7/26/23): Pac vs. Rush
In his first singles match since tapping out to Ren Narita at Forbidden Door II, Pac looks to make a statement that he isn’t growing weaker or too overconfident for his own good. His shots are noticeably more stiff than usual, but unfortunately for AEW’s resident Bastard, he has to go up against Rush. After the singles loss to Bryan Danielson, Rush goes on a tear, becoming increasingly violent and harder to take down. He was notoriously hard to inflict damage upon before, but now all of his opponents have to dig even deeper. And while Pac puts up a strong effort, Rush proves himself superior, hitting his signature Double Underhook Piledriver and continuing the downward spiral of the Bastard.
Rush def. Pac via pinfall (15:31)
After the match, Fenix and Penta come out to help Pac, but he shoves Fenix specifically back, telling them that he doesn’t need their pity and he can get to the back just fine on his own.
The following week, FTR gives a proposition to the Lucha Brothers: why don’t they run it back? The fans deserve a proper ending to their classic match at Fyter Fest, and with All Out around the corner, they have a huge stage to put on the finale. Penta and Fenix of course accept, and things are looking up for them…until…
With mere days until the PPV, an unfortunate series of events occur. In a backstage segment, FTR are speaking with Renee Paquette when we suddenly hear a brief scream nearby. FTR looks to investigate, and they’re horrified to discover a laid out Rey Fenix! Fenix is clutching his arm, which he appears to think is broken, and can barely even sit-up. FTR calls for doctors, and after they arrive, so does Penta. He looks incensed, questioning FTR as to what they did. Even when they say they didn’t attack him, Penta shoves Dax, who shoves Penta right back, forcing a swarm of officials to have to break up a potential brawl.
Later in the show, Renee finds Penta and Alex Abrahantes, asking for an update on the former’s brother. Abrahantes says that Fenix suffered nerve damage and a broken arm from damage inflicted by a blunt object, and can’t be medically cleared to compete for some time. When asked as to how this will affect the Tag Title match, Pac suddenly shows up in frame, saying he’ll fight alongside Penta and make FTR pay for what they did. Renee points out how it couldn’t have been them, she was talking to FTR at the time of the attack, and Pac retorts by saying it was probably someone like Rush then. Either way, he and Penta are winning the tag team titles at All Out.
All Out (9/3/23): Penta El Zero Miedo and Pac vs. FTR (c) - AEW Tag Team Championships
And this match proves to be quite a physical one, with Penta and Pac operating on more emotion than usual to try and avenge Fenix and get the titles back in Death Triangle’s grips for him. FTR stay calm and collected throughout, making good use of their established tag team chemistry to match up against the more physically talented but less-experienced tag match duo standing across the ring from them. However, with Pac’s recent failures, his aggression continues to escalate, and eventually, he hits a Black Arrow on Wheeler before securing the Brutalizer on him, passing him out and earning a hard-fought victory.
Penta and Pac def. FTR via submission pass-out to win the AEW Tag Team Championships (21:38)
Following the successful title win at All Out, Pac and Penta continue to thrive over the coming months. They have multiple successful title defenses, including against the Acclaimed and the Young Bucks. However, a new challenger soon approaches in the form of Best Friends. It’s no secret as to how much Pac detests Orange Cassidy, and therefore by extension, Chuck Taylor and Trent as well. However, with the pair of Taylor and Trent earning a tag title shot, Pac and Penta have no choice but to face (and hopefully destroy) them once and for all.
With that, Rey Fenix would also appear more regularly leading up to Full Gear, arm in a sling but in mostly good health and saying that he’ll be supporting Pac and Penta on the sidelines while also looking for the man who tried to shorten his career.
Full Gear (11/18/23): Best Friends vs. Pac and Penta (c) - AEW Tag Team Championship
Despite Pac especially not viewing Taylor nor Trent as being viable enough to take him and Penta down, those Best Friends prove that tag team cohesion can make up for less explosiveness, doing well to both stay resilient towards Pac’s vicious onslaught and Penta’s aerial abilities while also managing to get in some effective offense as well. Unfortunately, Pac has control over Taylor near the end of the match-up, and after a ref bump, Pac calls for Fenix (who was sitting at ringside) to pass him the hammer. He wants to end things…
But Fenix refuses! He wants his stablemates to win in the morally right way, and doesn’t want Pac to use his signature weapon. Pac briefly yells at Fenix, but as he turns around, he’s met with a piledriver from Chuck Taylor! 1-2-3!
Best Friends def. Pac and Penta via pinfall (16:39)
And just like that, Penta and Pac have lost their tag titles, and Pac is clearly pissed, not looking at Fenix in order to keep himself in check. Even Penta is seemingly off and a little annoyed at his brother for what happened, but he’s able to get himself composed, eventually walking out with Fenix while Pac stays further ahead.
Dynamite (11/22/23): Death Triangle Backstage Interview
Despite having lost their tag team championships just a few days prior, Death Triangle are seemingly not intent on living in the past, but rather on focusing on the future. And with that, Alex Abrantes has some news: Rey Fenix is back! After taking some time away to both recover from injury and gather information surrounding who put him out of action in the first place, Fenix is ready to come back. And he’s on the cusp of finding this mystery attacker: he’s found a trail of evidence, and next week, he’ll be ready to finally find out who blindsided him. As he speaks, Penta looks calm, but Pac looks as though he’s seen a ghost, growing pale and an expression of nervousness that wasn’t there at the beginning of the interview.
Dynamite (11/29/23): Rey Fenix Promo
And upon next week finally arriving, Fenix would make his way to the ring, alongside Penta and Alex Abrahantes. However, instead of the latter speaking on his behalf, he grabs a mic, speaking himself:
RF: “These past few months have been challenging for me. I’ve wanted nothing more than to compete for all of you, to fight with my brother as tag team champions. But somebody wanted me out of the picture. Somebody injured my arm, the same one that kept me on the shelf once before. And now, I’m going to expose them for the coward they are.”
On cue, Fenix motions towards the titantron, where two videos appear side-by-side on the split screen. The first video shows a masked figure hitting Fenix’s arm with a blunt object, and the second video shows what appears to be the same masked individual taking off their disguise before heading into a locker room. However, this security camera footage is blurry, and we can’t make out who the assailant is. That is, until Fenix makes an announcement:
RF: “The key to finding out who attacked me is behind this footage. And though it may be hard to see, I know a man who can help clear things up.”
And with that, out comes the man, the myth, the legend…DANHAUSEN! The very nice and very evil individual comes to the ring quickly, and Fenix asks if he can help enhance the images…reverse the curse if you will. Before Danhausen can respond however…out comes Pac! The Bastard marches to the ring, a pissed off look on his face, and he asks Fenix why he brought this clown out. Danhausen is an idiot, he can’t do anything with that footage. Fenix looks at Pac questioningly, but before he can say anything, Danhausen chimes in, claiming he actually can. And with that, he holds his hands up towards the titantron, harnessing his supernatural energy…
AND THE VIDEOS ARE ALL OF A SUDDEN PERFECT QUALITY! Pac’s expression turns to that of shock, and soon enough, the videos begin playing again. The first clip shows the masked man hitting Fenix, but soon we can see what the foreign object was…a hammer. And as the second video reaches its conclusion, everyone sees who the man with the mask was…IT WAS PAC!
Before Fenix can fully accept this outcome however, Pac turns towards Danhausen, belting him with a boot and knocking him out of the ring. It’s upon hearing this physical shot that Fenix finally turns around, moving towards Pac. Rey looks hurt, but by this point, Pac has a cold look on his face. The two stare each other down, the crowd anxiously awaiting who’s going to make the first move. And after a moment, it’s neither of them, as Penta moves towards the tension-filled confrontation. Initially, it looks like Penta is just trying to separate the two, but after Fenix sort of pushes him aside…PENTA SUPERKICKS HIS OWN BROTHER!
A malicious smirk comes across the face of Pac, Penta having made his decision on who to align with. The Bastard starts stomping away on Fenix’s skull, before quickly dragging his weakened body to the corner, climbing to the top rope and nailing the Black Arrow. He initially looks primed to transition the move into the signature Brutalizer submission hold, but upon turning back towards Penta, he changes his mind. He moves out of the ring, grabbing a steel chair and placing it in the center of the ring. He then drags Fenix to Penta, yelling at him to destroy him. Penta responds by picking his brother up, getting him in position for his signature Package Piledriver…
BUT OUT COMES BANDIDO! Several months ago, it was Fenix who saved Bandido from Pac assaulting him after the match with Narita, and now Bandido is here to return the favor. Upon getting in the ring, he immediately jumps at Pac, getting him on the ground and getting in stiff shots to the head. Penta pulls him off, but Bandido is perfectly willing to fight him as well, eventually forcing Pac and Penta (with Abrahantes) to retreat. And while Bandido helps Fenix to his feet, the physical and emotional damage was already done…
And just like that, Death Triangle has officially exploded, Rey Fenix being left to rot by his brothers while Pac and Penta El Zero Miedo seemingly continue to move forward together. But how do the remaining months play out for these three men? Find out in Part II…

2023.03.25 06:58 CarbonatedInsidious Ever wonder why India rarely has A rated movies, while in the west its more commonplace?
I recently went down a journey to discover India’s A rated cinema, movies that were deemed to be suitable for adults audiences only. The Indian film industry isn’t known for its A rated films. In fact, less than 1 in 5 films
rated A releases every year in India and these figures are from 2016. The number has gone down further since. Figures for the same for the US have also fallen but still remain much higher than that of India.
So why is this the case? There are 2 reasons- CBFC and the Indian rating system
Reason 1: Central Board of Film Certification or popularly known as the “censor board”
As I continued to travel along my journey, I noticed something strange. The fact that even after the A rating, the film had bleeped out curses
. Moreover, after checking the IMDb runtime of these films, I realized that some entire scenes were cut out altogether
. If the film already had a mature content rating, why were these additional steps taken?
Here I was thinking that CBFC
, like the MPAA of USA
, just classifies and certifies the movies
and does not
actually censoremove anything. But as I could see very clearly, this was not the case. (I also realized that the abbreviation "CBFC'' does not actually contain the words "censor board". I genuinely thought that CBFC stood for censor board).
Turns out CBFC actually has the same job as the MPAA but unlike MPAA, CBFC holds the power to stop a film from releasing altogether
. This was not the case until one particular case in 1970, K.A. Abbas versus Union of India
, where Abbas had made a documentary film, A Tale of Four Cities (1968)
, which was granted an “A” certificate for viewing only by adults. He challenged the Cinematograph Act
as he wanted his film to be viewed by all. The Chief Justice Hidayatullah
upheld the law on the ground that films had an “instant appeal
” and could “stir up emotions more deeply than any other product of art”
From here on out, CBFC got the power to stop films from releasing
until it was censored
to meet the standards of the board on what they thought was good for the general public
. CBFC’s own data shows that a greater proportion of feature films
are being passed with cuts
in recent times. About a decade ago, two out of every three
Indian movies were certified without any cuts; now, that has fallen to one in every two
. Here is where the trouble of Indian directors and writers begin.
I think most people know most of the rest of the story. But here is how the process started to go for a film to get certified and released in India:
- Send a copy of the film to CBFC
- CBFC views it and decides on one of the three things- gives a U rating, gives a U/ A rating with suggested cuts, or gives an A rating with list of required cuts.
- Once a film has been given either of the three ratings, there is no way a film could go from A to U/ A or U/ A to U. The certification is permanent. So for a filmmaker who has received an A rating, they have to do the required cuts for the film to be released. Or they can go to the court and contest CBFC's decision. (more on this below)
- The film finally gets released if the filmmaker does the required cuts or it gets lost in the limbo forever cause CBFC's decision also applies to all physical media.
The final point is less damning now since OTT platforms do not come under CBFC jurisdiction so filmmakers can go direct to streaming, but before the streaming era this is what actually happened to multiple filmmakers. Most famous example- Paanch (2003)
If a filmmaker goes to court to contest the CBFC decision, they are bound to wait at least a year
before the court makes a decision. This is not feasible for most production houses due to monetary concerns
so all they can really do is edit the film as requested
because the other option is dealing with the Indian legal system and most prefer not to do that. There are some filmmakers who have done this and the results they received were not appealing for other people to go and follow. For example, movies like Black Friday (2004)
and Udta Punjab (2016
) While the latter example had the benefit of being in a digital age and receiving support from the general public, Kashyap's Black Friday was blocked for release for 2 years
while the production house battled in court for its release.
And after all this, reception by the public of said films remains lukewarm
at best due to lack of promotion. Here too CBFC plays a role. While content shown on television (normal cable TV) does not come under CBFC, the promos and advertisements that are showcased do
. So here again we see stringent censorship
that often blocks or limits promotion of A rated films.
Reason 2: Indian rating system Audience ratings is a fairly new thing in India
. Before IMDb
was popularized in India (and used by TV shows for promotion), there were only two metrics
by which a person could know whether or not a film was worth watching- what critics thought of the film
and whether it was a box office hit or a flop.
The latter played (and continues to play) a vital role
in swaying a person. “Movie hit thi ya flop?”
(Was the movie hit or flop) is a common phrase used by several of us when deciding whether or not we should see this film. If the movie gains money at the box office, it’s a hit. If not it’s a flop
. Box office is everything that matters for everyone- audiences, production houses and critics. And herein lies another reason why A rated films are so rare
On average, A rated films earn way less than a U or U /A rated film
. This is true everywhere but its force is more immensely felt in India. Films that are loved by audiences and critics but fail to gain money at the box office are labeled flop and that title remains with it for the rest of life. So how does all this lead to the current state of Indian cinema?
Production houses became increasingly risk proof. They started giving money to safe films, films that were guaranteed to be certified and released by CBFC and that were controversy free. This gives us the infamous term "masala movies". Pick out any A-list actor, get about-competent screenwriters to write a script, get a director to make a film that looked similar to every other similar film released in the past decade and voila, you have a hit on your hands
. We started seeing such movies everywhere and films that were riskier and tackled mature content became almost extinct for a while. Add into this the inherently nepotistic industry
and a fundamentally flawed rating system
and we are left with the current state of Indian cinema. A constant stream of mediocre content using the same old storylines that 90s love stories used.
Oh and the monthly biopics (dont forget about that, industry just loves them).
Are there any signs of change? Well OTT platforms seem to be taking a few risks and with the rising popularity of rating aggregators people are starting to see what the general consensus of the above talked films are like. But overall reform still seems very far and doesn’t seem likely to change anytime in near future.
If youve reached so far, thanks for reading my thoughts and please share yours too.

2023.03.25 06:55 bigjohn14325 FS 113 - How WWE Should Book LA Knight after WrestleMania 39
LA Knight who was known as Shaun Ricker at the time signed with WWE in 2013 after grinding for nearly a decade on the indies but was used as enhancement talent and was never given a chance to shine. Knight left the WWE in 2014 and was soon forgotten. Ricker as Eli Drake would sign with TNA in 2015 and he became one of the biggest stars of the post-Hogan TNA era. He held numerous titles such as the Impact World Tag Team Championship with Scott Steiner, TNA King of the Mountain Championship, and even the Impact World Championship. After leaving Impact in 2019, Eli Drake went to the revitalized National Wrestling Alliance where he would win the NWA World Tag Team alongside James Storm. In early 2021, Eli Drake left the NWA in early 2021 and resigned with the WWE after having proven himself time & time again in every company he signed with. 20 years of hard work finally paid off. Prelude WrestleMania 39: Night One
LA Knight would become one of the last major signings of the NXT Black & Gold Era. LA Knight had a decent run, having an entertaining feud with Cameron Grimes that involved Ted DiBiase & the Million Dollar Championship. He even had a face run feuding with Grayson Waller, he even teamed up with the old guard of NXT Black & Gold to face the new crop of talent representing NXT 2.0 inside WarGames, a match NXT Black & Gold went on to lose. LA Knight would do the job for Gunther at NXT Takeover Stand & Deliver which would ultimately be Knight’s last match in NXT. Immediately following WrestleMania 38, LA Knight was called up to the main roster and would soon start his own faction called Maximum Male Models with Mace & Mansoor. Knight would have his name changed to Max Dupri and would gain a manager who was his storyline sister Maxxine Dupri. Maximum Male Models has shown potential as a decent undercard stable but is definitely below the talents & capabilities of LA Knight. Soon after Triple H took over creative, Max Dupri would leave MMM and revert back to LA Knight. He would then start losing matches to the likes of Ricochet and feud with Bray Wyatt in that awful Pitch Black Match at Royal Rumble. But despite consistently losing, he is getting louder & louder reactions from the fans and is primed for a huge push after this year’s WrestleMania. So get ready to look at how WWE SHOULD BOOK LA KNIGHT AFTER WRESTLEMANIA 39 YEAHHH!!!
The Miz is the host of WrestleMania and he has an episode of Miz TV with his guest being “Stone Cold” Steve Austin. The Miz starts asking Austin general questions about his career and they begin talking about Austin’s match against Kevin Owens at last years WrestleMania. Miz says that Austin was looking a little slow out there and he sees why Austin hasn’t competed since because Austin wouldn’t stand a chance against a real talent such as The Miz. This draws the ire of the Texas Rattlesnake. Austin says that maybe he’ll come out of retirement again so he can wipe that goofy grin off The Miz’s face. Austin manages to goad The Miz into accepting the match RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW!!! The Miz vs “Stone Cold” Steve Austin
Like last year, Austin shows that he’s still one tough SOB really laying a can a whoop ass on The Miz. Austin seems to have the match won when Maryse comes out distracting the referee which allows Miz to hit a low blow on Austin. Miz hits a SKULL CRUSHING FINALE, ONE… TWO… AUSTIN KICKS OUT. Austin makes his way back to his feet and he is PISSED. Austin stomps a fucking mudhole in The Miz and follows it up with a Stunner that send MIZ FLYING. It’s Austin’s turn to make the cover, ONE… TWO… THREE. STONE COLD STEVE AUSTIN HUMBLED THE MIZ TO KICK OFF WRESTLEMANIA 39!!! ”Stone Cold” Steve Austin defeats The Miz in 8:28 WrestleMania 39: Night Two
On night two of WrestleMania 39, in the middle of the show, we get an impromptu appearance from LA Knight. He puts down the fans and he says that he deserved to be on the WrestleMania card especially over the LA Knight wanna be The Miz and an old retired drunk like Steve Austin. He says they suck and that he should have been on the card over them and that’s a fact of life. This is when Austin comes out and we have a funny & numerous promo exchange between them which results in Austin nailing Knight with a Stunner. LA Knight eventually makes his way back to his feet but he’s still very disoriented. We repeat the spot Austin did with JBL back in 2011 with Austin handing a very disoriented LA Knight a beer then he hits yet another Stunner that Knight sells like The Rock in his prime. STONE COLD STEVE AUSTIN HAS HUMILIATED LA KNIGHT ON THE GRANDEST STAGE OF THEM ALL!!! Raw April 3rd, 2023
It’s the Raw after WrestleMania and we bring back the ANNUAL WWE DRAFT!!! The new WWE Champion Cody Rhodes is Smackdown’s first draft pick. New Intercontinental Champion Sheamus gets drafted to Raw. LA Knight however is one of the last picks on Monday Night Raw!!! LA Knight is absolutely furious and he says that next week is the start of his journey to becoming THE GUY ON MONDAY NIGHT RAW!!! Raw April 10th, 2023 LA Knight vs Seth Rollins: World Heavyweight Championship Tournament First Round Match
After winning the Undisputed Universal Championship at WrestleMania, Cody Rhodes retires the Universal Championship since after all, the WWE Title was the real prize for Cody. Taking the place of the Universal Championship, will be the return of the WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP!!! LA Knight will have to face Seth Rollins and it does not go well for LA Knight who absolutely loses it in the ring after losing. Seth Rollins defeats LA Knight to advance in the World Heavyweight Championship Tournament in 12:56
Later in the night, Drew McIntyre has a match in the tournament and things are looking good for the big Scotsman but LA Knight cost Drew the match because LA Knight wants to make an Impact by defeating one of Raw’s major players. Backlash 2023 LA Knight vs Drew McIntyre
LA Knight has a lot to prove against the former two-time WWE Champion. LA Knight does better than anyone expects against Drew hitting a verity of moves that impresses the audience and even gets a very close two count with Blunt Force Trauma. Drew however, is still pissed about being robbed of the World Heavyweight Championship and he turns LA Knight inside out with a Claymore to get the 3 count. Drew McIntyre defeats LA Knight in 14:48 Raw May 8th, 2023 20-Man Battle Royal: #1 Contenders Match for The Intercontinental Championship
This match is a bit of a clusterfuck but LA Knight does what he does best and picks his spots very carefully, scoring an elimination here and then but keeping a low profile. The final three are LA Knight, Drew McIntyre, and Pete Dunne. McIntyre managed to eliminate Pete Dunne but FROM BEHIND LA KNIGHT ELIMINATES DREW MCINTYRE TO BECOME #1 CONTENDER FOR THE INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP!!! LA Knight wins the battle Royal to become #1 Contender for the Intercontinental Championship in 11:56 King & Queen of the Ring LA Knight vs Sheamus(c): Intercontinental Championship
LA Knight finally has the opportunity to turn his recent string of bad luck around by bringing home his first taste of main roster gold but he’s going against an Irish brute in Sheamus. Knight has a plan however and he attacks the right knee of Sheamus and hit pays off when Sheamus hits the Brough Kick but he’s selling the knee and he takes forever to pin LA Knight and he kicks out at two. Sheamus does manage to power through the pain and he locks in the TEXAS CLOVERLEAF!!! LA Knight desperately tries to stay in this, he’s flipping around like a fish outta water. He scratches & claws his way towards the ropes but he just can’t, LA KNIGHT TAPS OUT. LA KNIGHT’s STRING OF BAD LUCK CONTINUES!!!

LA Knight defeats Dolph Ziggler in 9:19 Money in the Bank 2023 LA Knight vs Bobby Lashley vs Cameron Grimes vs Pete Dunne vs Ricochet vs Gunther vs Finn Bálor vs Bronson Steiner: Money in the Bank Ladder Match
While this may not be the first ladder match of LA Knight’s career he is certainly out of his element here and there’ll be no Million Dollar Man to save him this time. LA Knight aims to end his string of bad luck by guaranteeing himself a world title match within the next year. This match is pure anarchy, Ricochet is using the environment around him to take out his opponents using the ladders to , Pete Dunne does ladder assisted joint manipulation, and Solo Sikoa uses his Samoan strength to batter the competition. LA Knight quickly adapts to this chaotic match by picking his spots very carefully like the manipulative bastard he really is. It’s then that LA Knight climbs the ladder and comes face to face with BRONSON STEINER!!! LA Knight wishes that he could get out of dodge having seen what Steiner was capable of in NXT but Knight being on top of the ladder means he has absolutely nowhere to go but down and that’s exactly what happens when BRONSON HITS A FRANKENSTEINER OFF THE TOP OF THE LADDER!!! After a few more minutes of action, LA KNIGHT SNEAKS BACK INTO THE RING KNOCKING OLD RIVAL CAMERON GRIMES OFF THE LADDER CLIMBS THE LADDER HIMSELF TO RETRIEVE THE BRIEFCASE!!! LA KNIGHT IS MR MONEY IN THE BANK, LA KNIGHTS STRING OF BAD LUCK IS OVER!!! LA Knight wins the Money in the Bank Briefcase in 26:47 Raw August 7th, 2023
LA Knight doesn’t wait long to take advantage of the fact that he’s Mr. Money in the Bank and he attempts to cash in on Seth Rollins but before the match can start, CAMERON GRIMES spoils the cash-in attempt. Grimes says that he was so close to winning Money in the Bank but that sneaky bastard LA Knight knocked him off the ladder and cost him his chance of becoming world champion. Cameron Grimes reminds LA Knight that he kicked his ass in NXT and he’s going to do the same at SUMMERSLAM!!! Summerslam 2023 LA Knight vs Cameron Grimes

The heat for LA Knight is ABSOLUTELY NUCLEAR. LA Knight defeats Edge to win the World Heavyweight Championship in 3:13 Raw September 5th, 2023
LA Knight boasts about being World Heavyweight Champion and how he has officially won championships everywhere he’s been but that’s when he gets interrupted by Seth Rollins and he calls Knight a fluke champion and says he hasn’t beaten anyone of note in a fair fight. It was Rollins that beat LA Knight in that WHC Tournament a few months ago and Rollins challenges LA Knight to a World Heavyweight Championship Match at Clash at the Castle and LA Knight accepts but he says that there’s a catch. LA Knight had a clause put in his contract anyone who challenges him for the title only gets one match so no matter what happens at the PPV, there WILL BE NO REMATCH AND THATS A FACT OF LIFE!!!!! Clash at the Castle 2023 LA Knight(c) vs Seth Rollins: World HeavyweightChampionship
LA Knight makes an elaborate entrance as World Heavyweight Champion just to get under everyone’s skin. Rollins is chomping at the bit to shut this loud mouth old fuck up and they go to work. LA Knight uses every heel tactic he knows to gain an advantage that is until he sneaks the WHC Title Belt into the ring as Rollins sets up for a Crub Stomp. Seth Rollins goes for the Curb Stomp but in mid-air, LA KNIGHT CLOCKS HIS ASS WITH THE BIG GOLD BELT!!! LA Knight makes the cover, ONE… TWO… ROLLINS IS A DEFIANT AS EVER.

LA Knight defeats Seth Rollins to retain the World Heavyweight Championship in 19:42 Raw October 9th, 2023
LA Knight comes out with his World Heavyweight Championship with an arrogant smirk on his face. He is only a couple weeks removed from defeating one of the literal best wrestlers in the world in Seth Rollins. LA Knight is in a very floating mood tonight, that is until he’s interrupted by THE PHENOMENAL ONE AJ STYLES!!! AJ says that LA Knight is just a just a pretend world champion, but that’s what he’s been his whole career. Styles says that LA Knight has gotten by his whole entire career by acting like a discount Dwayne. He only made it down in Orlando because AJ left and he only made it here because he hasn’t had to contend with AJ Styles. The flat Earth man says that he didn’t need to cash in Money in the Bank on a weakened opponent to win his two world titles. AJ CHALLENGES LA KNIGHT TO A WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH AT CROWN JEWEL!!! Crown Jewel 2023 LA Knight vs AJ Styles: World Heavyweight Championship
We get to the PPV (I refuse to call it a PLE) and it’s the face of OG TNA vs the face of the post Hogan era of TNA. These two have an old school TNA style match. AJ turns back the clock and busts out moves not seen in years such as the Spiral Tap. AJ completely outclasses LA Knight from a wrestling standpoint but AJ makes a costly error when he takes too long to set up for the Phenomenal Forearm and LA capitalizes by hitting a leap-up superplex followed up by BLUNT FORCE TRAUMA, ONE… TWO… THREE… LA KNIGHT HAS DEFEATED AJ STYLES CLEAN AS A FUCKING WHISTLE TO RETAIN THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP!!! LA Knight has finally been legitimized as a world champion. LA Knight defeats AJ Styles to retain the World Heavyweight Championship in 21:58
After the match, EDGE MAKES HIS FIRST APPEARANCE SINCE BEING SCREWED OUT OF THE WHC BY LA KNIGHT!!! Edge makes a beeline for LA Knight throwing rights & lefts at the champion before LEVELING HIM WITH A SPEAR. Edge lifts up the very same title that was stolen from him far too soon. Raw November 6th, 2023
Edge comes out and talks about how 12 years ago, he was in the prime of his career having just retained the World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania but just 8 days later he had to retire due to a neck injury and subsequently vacated the title. Not only did he come back 3 years ago so he could finish his career on his terms, but he also wanted to have the world title reign that he was robbed of over a decade ago. Edge calls out LA Knight for doing that to him not only in his hometown but right in front of his family as well. Edge wants a rematch for the title in A HARDCORE MATCH at SURVIVOR SERIES!!! LA Knight comes out and tells Edge to hold his fake outrage because all LA Knight did was do the same thing Edge has done not once but TWICE. LA Knight says that Edge made a career out of being an opportunist, a snake but now because Edge is old and considered a legend he thinks he can pander to the fans and all the sudden give a damn about right & wrong. LA Knight says whether he’s 40, 50, or 60 he’ll always be the same LA Knight because he’ll never claim to give a damn about these people and that’s a fact of life. LA Knight accepts the match so he can put Edge out to pasture for good. Survivor Series 2023 LA Knight(c) vs Edge: Hardcore Match for the World Heavyweight Championship
This match is gonna fucking go hard, it’s the opportunist of old vs the opportunist of new. Edge isn’t playing any games tonight and he starts throwing all different sorts of weapons into the ring. This match is a fucking car crash that sees both men beaten & broken. LA Knight gets set up on the Apron, flaming table behind him, Edge is poised for a spear. It’s WrestleMania 22 all over again. Edge goes for it but someone moves LA Knight and EDGE CRASHES & BURNS RIGHTS THROUGH THE FLAMING TABLE WITH NOBODY HOME. The man who helped LA Knight is… KEVIN OWENS!!! LA Knight rolls Edge back into the ring and hits BLUNT FORCE TRAUMA, KNIGHT MAKES THE COVER, ONE… TWO… THREE!!! LA KNIGHT HAS DEFEATED EDGE TO RETAIN THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP!!! In a cruel bit of irony, Edge’s very first world title reign started when HE cashed in MITB and his last world title reign ends when someone cashed in on HIM. LA Knight defeats Edge to retain the World Heavyweight Championship in 29:15 Raw December 18th, 2023
Kevin Owens explained that him costing Edge the World Heavyweight Championship was nothing personal and it was all business. Owens needed Edge out of the title picture so he could move his way up, after all he is a prizefighter and he hasn’t won a the big prize in over 6 years. After dropping the WWE World Tag Team Titles, Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn went their separate ways without bloodshed for once. Both men have forged their path in the singles division with great success but now they find themselves both in contention for the World Heavyweight Championship. In the match itself, Owens & Zayn lay it all out in the ring until they are attacked by LA Knight who lays both men out with a steel chair. Triple H comes out and announced that BOTH MEN WILL CHALLENGE LA KNIGHT FOR THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP AT ROYAL RUMBLE!!! Royal Rumble 2024 LA Knight(c) vs Kevin Owens vs Sami Zayn: World Heavyweight Championship
This match is an archaic fuckfest, we have two best friends who are currently on rocky grounds but if there’s one thing that can unite them, it’s their mutual hatred of LA Knight, YEAHHH. Owens & Sami focus all their attention on Knight, taking turns kicking his ass but there’s clear tension between them. LA Knight realizes that he’ll have to use that tension to his advantage and he manages to put them against each other. Despite all that, OWENS STILL MANAGES TO HIT AN AVALANCHE PACKAGE PILEDRIVER ON LA KNIGHT. Owens makes the cover, ONE… TWO… SAMI BREAKS THE PIN!!! Owens is pissed, he gets in Sami’s face and says “I’ve waited seven long years for this!” Sami retorts that, “this is my dream too!” Owens SLAPS Sami and they begin to brawl. They end up outside of the ring and OWENS HITS AN APRON POWERBOMB ON SAMI, KEVIN OWENS IS REALLY TRYING TO HURT SAMI. Owens enters the ring having almost forgotten about Knight and he is immediately hit with a thumb to the ray followed up by BLUNT FORCE TRAUMA. Knight makes the cover, ONE… TWO… OWENS BARELY KICKS OUT AND BOY IS HE FIRED UP!!! Owens spends the next few minutes just kicking the piss outta Knight. Owens hits his original finisher the POP-UP POWERBOMB but before he can make the cover, Sami limps back into the ring, his back is in excruciating pain but he refuses to let go of his dream of FINALLY becoming world champion. Sami is trading blows with Owens and he hits a reverse STO, followed by a Koji Clutch. OWENS IS FADING FAST, SAMI IS JUST SECONDS AWAY FROM BECOMING WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION!!! Knight breaks up to pins hitting Sami in his injured back but there is absolutely no quit in Sami and he hits the exploder suplex followed up by the Helluva Kick, Sami makes the cover, ONE… TWO… OWENS BREAKS UP THE PIN. Owens tosses Sami out of the ring and pins LA Knight, ONE… TWO… THREE. AFTER SEVEN LONG YEARS KEVIN OWENS IS ONCE AGAIN WORLD CHAMPION!!! Kevin Owens defeats LA Knight & Sami Zayn to win the World Heavyweight Championship in 26:41 30 Man Royal Rumble Match
We fast forward to the Royal Rumble match and we see Johnny Gargano enter at #27. But before Gargano can enter the ring, LA KNIGHT COMES OUT AND SMASHES GARGANO WITH A STEEL CHAIR!!! Despite having competed earlier tonight, LA KNIGHT TAKES JOHNNY GARGANO’S SPOT IN THE ROYAL RUMBLE AT #27. He limps to the ring and knowing that he’s not at 100% he’ll have to pick his spots even more carefully. A handful of guys are attempting to hoist Braun Strowman over the top rope, Knight grabs Strowman’s arm from outside of the ring assisting in Strowman’s elimination. Knight also manages to score a sneaky elimination over old rival Cameron Grimes. Things are seriously looking up for LA Knight. #28 & #29 come out and LA Knight is still hanging in there, just maybe his luck is finally turning around. That is until entrant #30 who is STONE COLD STEVE AUSTIN!!! He runs fast for a 60 year old man and he is hitting Stunners like it’s 1998. LA Knight is completely incensed when he lays eyes on the man who ruined his first WrestleMania. LA Knights gets the jump on Austin, but the Texas Rattlesnake won’t go down with out a fight and he’s throwing haymakers back at Knight followed up by a Stunner that’s send LA Knight flying over the top rope. LA KNIGHT HAS BEEN ELIMINATED!!! It’s all good though as Gunther chops Austin into oblivion and throws him over the top rope putting Gunther over huge. Not gonna go into detail about the rest of the Rumble since it’s not relevant to the story but GUNTHER WINS!!! Gunther wins the Royal Rumble in 1:04:28 Raw January 28th, 2024 LA Knight vs Sami Zayn: Elimination Chamber Qualifier
It’s only been 48 hours since LA Knight lost the World Heavyweight Championship then failed to win the Royal Rumble match getting eliminated by none other than “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, the man who embarrassed LA Knight at last year’s WrestleMania. Tonight, LA Knight faces a man who also feels that he deserves to be World Heavyweight Champion and that is Sami Zayn. These two have an absolute barnburner of a match as they both have unfinished business from Royal Rumble. SAMI ZAYN BEATS LA KNIGHT TO QUALIFY FOR THE ELIMINATION CHAMBER!!! Sami Zayn defeats LA Knight in 18:45 Raw February 5th, 2024
We start off with a promo from “Stone Cold” Steve Austin and talks about why he entered the Royal Rumble Match. Austin says that he wants whoop some ass and have one final round with the WWE Title and he says that he’s going to enter the chamber and open a can a whoop ass on the five unlucky SOB’s who will be stuck in a chamber with him. That’s when LA Knight’s music his and Austin looks up the ramp expecting Knight to make his way down, BUT AUSTIN GETS CLOBBERED FROM BEHIND WITH A STEEL CHAIR FROM LA KNIGHT!!! LA Knight targets the bad knees of Austin bashing them into the ring post then finally, Knight wraps the chair over Austin’s knee and is getting ready to snap the leg of a 60 year old legend but JOHNNY GARGANO COMES OUT AND RUNS KNIGHT OFF!!! Elimination Chamber 2024 LA Knight vs Johnny Gargano
The story here is simple, Johnny Gargano wants revenge for being robbed of a spot in the Royal Rumble. Gargano puts on a great showing against Knight which causes him to resort to every heel tactic he can think of to gain the advantage. LA Knight rips off the turnbuckle padding but turns around into a superkick from Gargano. He then picks him up and tries to lawn dart him right into the turnbuckle but Knight slides off and pushes Gargano head first into the exposed turnbuckle. LA Knight sets up for Blunt Force Trauma but that’s when we hear GLASS SHATTER!!! ITS STONE COLD STEVE AUSTIN AND HES ON TBE RAMP STARING A HOLE THROUGH LA KNIGHT. This distraction allows for Johnny Gargano to hit a reverse rana followed up by the ONE FINAL BEAT, ONE… TWO… THREE!!! With the help of Austin Johnny Gargano has defeated LA Knight avenging the Screwjob at the Royal Rumble. Johnny Gargano defeats LA Knight in 11:11
After the match, Austin storms the ring and a huge fucking brawl ensues between the two, multiple referees & security try to break up the braw which allows LA Knight to get away. But Austin isn’t done yet and he clears the ring with STUNNER AFTER STUNNER ON EVERYONE. LA KNIGHT LOOKS HORRIFIED AT WHAT MIGHT HAPPEN TO HIM NEXT!!!!! WrestleMania 40 LA Knight vs “Stone Cold” Steve Austin: No Holds Barred
This match semi-main events Night One of WrestleMania 40. This match is going to be an Attitude Era style chaos. The match starts off hot with Austin throwing lefts & rights at the loudmouth LA Knight. AUSTIN GOES FOR AN EARLY STUNNER, but LA Knight leaves the ring. Austin doesn’t let up however and he drills Knight with a huge clothesline and starts throwing him into the barricade and into the steel steps. They begin fighting on rope of the announce table and that’s when AUSTIN HITS A HUGE BACK DROP ON LA KNIGHT RIGHT THROUGH THE GERMAN ANNOUNCE TABLE!!! Austin rolls Knight back into the ring but is met with a STUNNER FROM LA KNIGHT WHO JUST STOLE AUSTIN’S MOVE, ONE… TWO… AUSTIN KICKS OUT. LA Knight lays down the ground & pound on Austin and now AUSTIN IS BLEEDING LIKE A STUCK PIG as JR would say. Austin doesn’t go down east and he hits A MASSIVE STONE COLD STUNNER ON LA KNIGHT, ONE… TWO… LA KNIGHT KICKS OUT. Austin’s age begins to catch up and LA Knight outclasses Austin from a wrestling stand point. Austin goes for one last Stunner but LA Knight catches him in a single leg powerbomb followed up by BLUNT FORCE TRAUMA ON AUSTIN, ONE… TWO… AUSTIN KICKS OUT!!! Austin slowly makes his way back to his feet and he looks at LA Knight and flips him the bird one last time, LA Knight hits Blunt Force Trauma one last time. HE MAKES THE COVER, ONE… TWO… THREE… LA KNIGHT HAS DONE THE UNTHINKABLE AND DEFEATS STONE COLD STEVE AUSTIN AT WRESTLEMANIA!!! After the match, Austin gets his moment in the ring and nods at LA Knight giving his stamp of approval. LA Knight defeated “Stone Cold” Steve Austin in 21:39
Later that night, Sami Zayn & Kevin Owens are squaring off in the main event for the World Heavyweight Championship. They have done virtually everything together, they’ve been faces, they’ve been heels, they’ve been tag team champions, they’ve had blood feuds but NEVER have they they met in the main event of WrestleMania for a World Championship. These two former best friends have gone nearly 30 minutes and it’s an absolute barnburner of a match. Kevin Owens has Sami dead to rights but he make a miraculous comeback and hits one finally Helluva Kick to win the match!!! SAMI ZAYN AFTER OVER A DECADE GRINDING IN THE WWE IS FINALLY WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION!!! Confetti is falling from the sky, various members of the babyface roster come out to celebrate with Sami who they recognize as really deserving of this moment. While everyone is celebrating, we see a beaten up & limping LA Knight at the top of the entrance ramp staring a hole through the new World Heavyweight Champion to end Night One of WrestleMania 40. Epilogue
LA Knight would be cemented as one of the top heels in WWE for years to come. Sami Zayn & Kevin Owens would put their feud to rest until a possible retirement match between them down the line. Kevin Owens & Edge would eventually have their match at Summerslam, ideally set in Canada where Edge can officially retire for good this time. Sami Zayn would enjoy a prosperous reign as World Heavyweight Champion putting on bangers against anyone & everyone, that is until LA Knight finds himself back in the title picture and regain the championship and kickstart yet another great run with the title.

2023.03.25 06:46 PlanktonExpert1711 I've Become What I Thought Never I Would Be.
I wish the title could be a preface for great news I thought surely would have arrived by now. Unfortunately, I've become the one thing I have despised the most- a 'yo-yo dieter.'
I thought since the beginning that I have done eveything right. It has now been 6 years since I began my weight loss journey at 15 years old (I am now 21[male]). I won't go into 'poundage' as my height and lean tissue/muscle amounts have changed vastly over the past 6 years, so using weight would not fully paint the picture. But to begin and be brief, I have always been fat. Ever since 2nd grade, I was the "fatty." I was made aware of my size compared to what a healthy body weight would be. Then when I was around 10, I can remeber sitting in my bed wishing I could take a torch and "burn the fat off," as was commonly said on tv commericals to my impressionable self. I remember so much that went wrong, but this post isn't about my backstory as it is my failed endeavors.
After doing the math, over the past 6 years, I have lost 250 pounds in 7 intervals of, on average, 35 pounds, just to gain it all back each time. And in those times, I have been under 20% body fat and close to 50% body fat. I have worked very hard in the gym to increase my muscle mass in order to help myself burn more fat efficiently and I am just a big guy in general so throwing heavy weight around is fun. The only issue is, I have a terrible relationship with food. I was told, "You don't have relationships with food, you have relationships with people. You don't court food, you go to the food court." Bull. Food is a very easy thing to be tempted by, something your limbic system can make you go "oh I did good, time for a reward!" *4500 Cals later* or "I am such a failure, I need encouragement.." *2700 Cals later*. Food is my vice.
This seems like a typical yo-yo dieting story- I eat too little, then I eat too much. That's not the case here. I have spent my adolescence and young adulthood obsessing and researching, finding the perfect and healthy strategy for my weight loss. And after maturing into realizing there is no secret diet, no secret pill, or exercise, I made my weight loss into a science. This obsession ran me to point where at university where I study now, I have a 100 in a nutrition class for which I never study and I never read, and I am no genius by any means. I forced myself to become a perfectionist- tracking daily weight, tracking every gram of food, taking pictures, measuring body part circumferences, the whole shebang. And when I have the temporary motivation, I can lose weight within .1% of how much I wanted to lose for 3-4 months. But when I slip, I feel so much shame in my failure. I feel incapable of going back to doing things the 'right way.' I can't stand to face a setback. I can't stand to lose 'momentum' in my progress. I feel like all of the work I put into it from day one, saying "oh I will weigh this much by this date if I do everyhing PERFECT" will be wasted for nothing. So instead of taking a setback by getting up again, I dig a grave and hop into it for 8-9 months until I say, "wow I weigh more now than when I started." This cycle has gone on too long, and I'm tired.
I just don't feel like doing it anymore. I'm typing through tears now because I feel like I have wasted so much hard work, just to hate the way I look. I am sorry for this long, boring read strangers, but I don't want to quit, not yet. I just don't have a clue where to go from here. I'm so afraid of "starting fresh Monday" again. I know what will happen. I know I will fail. I thought I was strong, but I am not.
I'm sorry for the pitifulness, but any advice? Encouragement? Thank you. I want to update you all at some point in the future and make you proud.

2023.03.25 06:21 tk3786 Makes no sense
Started compiling a list of things recently that don’t make any sense about this game. What else you got?
1) Doesn’t matter which map but when you zoom in with a pistol it all of a sudden gets very windy and your sleeves flap everywhere. You could even be standing still and it does this lol
2) Getting hit markers with grenades in hardcore. How is this possible?
3) Interface no longer tells me when I’ve completed weapon challenges mid-game. It’s up to me to remember things like how many more long shots or prone kills I need and have to check in-between games to see if I was counting correctly.
4) No ability to vote for maps
5) Nothing is guaranteed. RIP 10v10, Shipment 24/7 and Shoothouse
6) Every single time I play Taraq, doesn’t matter what game mode or quality of connection, I spawn and the ground is 5 ft in the air lol. Map never fully loads until 5-10 seconds in
7) VTOL kills don’t add to my kill streak
8) You can empty an entire LMG clip into a VTOL and take it down relatively easy without getting shot at, but the second you shoot off an RPG the VTOL will rain down on you relentlessly, even spawn killing you a few times
9) Lack of original maps compared to other versions of COD
10) Why they got rid of play-of-the-game killcams
11) BONUS: why the final killcam only comes from the winning team. Multiple times I have had final kill but since my team didn’t win it shows the final kill of the winning team instead

2023.03.25 06:17 siddhesh_07 Character popularity poll to be held!
2023.03.25 06:15 Soggy-Mixture9671 Is my plot too complicated or weird + where could I start to have a compelling first chapter?
So, I want to write a book (or at least make an attempt), and I think I've figured out a decent premise, but I'm worried that the actual plot is too complicated, or maybe it lacks somethings. I also don't know what part of the plot to focus on in the first chapter that will captivate people.
The plot (sorry it's so long): Alaric, prince of Valoria, (1/2 of the main characters) is born at the exact same time that the magic source and gods within the world disappear. The magic source is essentially big lakes of Arcana (liquidated Arcanum) (Arcanum Wells). Some people, Arcanists, are able to use Arcanum without tapping into the magic source externally, but Arc Mages rely on that external source of Arcanum. The entire world runs off of it. Luckily, some Arcanum was stored as a solid, but there is a limited supply and it is immediately monopolized when the Arcana disappears. The world delves into chaos and Alaric and the rest of the royal family deal with that for the first 13 years of Alaric's life. When Alaric turns 13, he is tested for Arc abilities, to which he fails. For years, his entire lineage has been a family of powerful Arc Mages, and Alaric is the first one to be incompatible with the Arcanum. His family decides that it's best for this to be kept a secret, as it wouldn't affect anything because Alaric would likely not be taking the throne because he's the 2nd eldest. A few days before Alaric's 18th birthday, his brother unexpectedly dies, leaving Alaric as the next in line. In addition, his father has been deathly ill for the past few months and is now on his death bed, meaning Alaric would need to take up the throne as soon as possible. Word gets out to the general public that Alaric is arcless, and the kingdom, who is very magic-centered and relatively discriminatory towards people without arc abilities, riots against him and protests him as the next king. The second Alaric turns 18, he decides to run away, as he can't take the pressure of leading his kingdom when they despise him so greatly.
Jump to the other side of things, Jelio Eryndor was born a minute after Alaric to a middle-class family on the other side of the kingdom. She is born an Arcanist, someone who can intrinsically use Arcanum, and shows great power throughout her childhood. Her entire life since she was born revolves around her being a prodigy and dedicating herself to her studies of her Arc (Astralarc - manipulation of time and space stuff). When she turns 18, she displays magic so powerful that it is comparable to god magic. The "old gods" have been extinct for many years prior, and it shocks Jelio that she's suddenly displaying magic like that. Everyone around her recognizes this as well and starts to refer to Jelio as a god, which leads to Jelio running away as well.
Somehow, Alaric and Jelio meet each other and immediately form a bond. They eventually open up to each other about their past, and they find out that they were born at almost the same time. This strikes curiosity and suspicion in them, and they decide to figure out whether or not they have anything to do with the disappearance of the Arcanum Wells. They travel around for a while, trying to find clues about why all of this is happening, but they are continuously met with brick walls. One day Jelio's life is put at risk, as a long-standing group of people who despise the old gods catches wind of Jelio's power. Alaric attempts to stop them, and in a brief moment of absolute desperation, Alaric unleashes a very ancient arc called Voidarc. From there, they quickly deduce that Alaric might also be a god. When Alaric's magic is unlocked, it starts corrupting him. Jelio eventually notices and confronts him, which leads to a massive fight and they split up. Jelio goes on her own quest to figure out a way to stop Alaric and eventually finds something after she stumbles upon a journal from one of the old gods. Alaric and Jelio end up meeting back up, and Jelio defeats Alaric.
Not 100% of the ending details, but I at least have the main stuff down.

2023.03.25 06:14 Snapshadilou Red 5 standing by. Felt like treating myself after finally getting a job after being fired 2 years ago and since this is my first lego build, the size felt right before I level up to the bigger stuff. Might do a Tie fighter next or a Y-Wing. Still hoping for a Rogue Squadron movie/Tv Series.

Today's breeders are something else. These kids are gonna grow up so screwed from a glaringly obvious lack of parenting.
If I've got this straight, they let their kids play all day every day because it's a convenient distraction for them, then turn around and sue for it? Like... Motherfucker, PARENT YOUR KID
. When I was a kid my parents would walk in, turn the TV off, and tell me to get out of the house if I was playing too long.
Lootboxes and pay to win mechanisms are one thing, but games have been made addictive since their inception, it's quite literally why they're fun. If you can't teach a kid moderation, let alone yourself, then raising a whole ass human isn't for you! RABBLE!
Edit: Also, video game addiction at a young age might be the least of their problems if they develop an addictive personality into adulthood.
Edit 2: can't figure out how to make the title a hyperlink. https://www.vancouverisawesome.com/local-news/bc-parent-launches-class-action-lawsuit-against-makers-of-fortnite-video-game-6730083

2023.03.25 06:01 alientoyshop Chopped Challenge REBOOT #2 : Probably Magic
After a lovely Week 1, we're back for Week 2! This week features several ingredients that haven't been featured in previous challenges!
If you've never seen Chopped, it's a cooking competition where the chefs open a basket full of wacky ingredients like seaweed and cake balls and have to create a delicious
We want to apply the same idea to making levels! Each week we'll pick 1 style (SMB, SMB3, SMW, NSMBU, SM3DW) and 4 elements from it and you'll have a week to make a BRAND NEW LEVEL. You're allowed to use any elements you'd like to make your level, but you must include the weekly ingredients! Some elements will be the star of the show, might just be a garnish and that's OK!
Alright, your Week 2 style is.. (click to reveal!) Super Mario 3D World - The fancy one
And your ingredients will be.. Boomerang Flowers - I'm pretty sure boomerangs are magic Banzai Bills - They're so BIG Spinies - Very pointy turtles Warp Boxes - Where will you end up!
Which ones stand out to you? Don't be afraid to get weird
Let's go over a few important bullet points
- This is not a competition! This is about getting out of your comfort zone and also showing what you can do as a maker!
- Make whatever kind of level you want! Traditional, speedrun, troll (but you're too nice for that right? : D) , puzzle, whatever!
- You can submit your course at any time, even after the week is over (sometimes a great course needs a little more time in the oven)
- This should be a BRAND NEW COURSE THAT DOES NOT EXIST AS OF READING THIS POST.
- Any variation of the ingredients is fair game. (Banzai Bills, CAT Banzai Bills??)
- Again just to reiterate you can use any elements you want, but you must include the 4 weekly ingredients! The theme (underground, desert, sky, etc) and day/night is all up to you!
- If you have ANY interest in participating leave a comment below saying so! We'd love to know we have lots of awesome levels coming!
- Stop by the stream to see your level played, and join the newly awakened Chopped discord community!
- Submit your level in the comments here whenever you're finished! And please NAME your levels!
- Turn In Your Level Day is Sunday April 2nd, but we will accept late entries (we're cool like that).
- Then tune in on Tuesday April 4th (Chopped Chuesday of course) and we'll see what everyone came up with!
Ok, that's it, you got this! Happy making!
