2023.03.29 06:06 ButterfliesInSpace Crime/Mystery Investigation shows

Hello! I’ve run out of things to watch. I really like mystery/crime shows, so I’m looking for suggestions.
I like the ones that are more centered around investigating or court cases, and less thrilleaction. I don’t like horror. Detective and court shows are my favorite, but I like anything with a lot of investigating.
Some of my favorites are The Lincoln Lawyer, Criminal Minds, Broad Church, The Glass Onion, Monk, Law & Order, Mind Hunter, BBC Sherlock, Psych and Unbelievable.
I have Netflix and Prime, and anything that’s free on or Tubi.
I don’t like the true crime ones, like forensic files or any of the shows about real serial killers.

2023.03.29 05:03 NextNurofen [Discussion] It's Time to End Daylight Savings Time and Move to GMT+10 – Let's Bring More Sunlight to Our Lives!

[Discussion] It's Time to End Daylight Savings Time and Move to GMT+10 – Let's Bring More Sunlight to Our Lives!
As you know, twice a year, we go through the cumbersome process of changing our clocks for Daylight Saving Time (DST). While it was initially conceived to conserve energy, evidence shows that the benefits of DST are marginal at best, and it often causes more problems than it solves. So, I propose we abolish DST and move to GMT+10 permanently! Here's why:
  1. More sunlight after work, year-round: Moving to GMT+10 means more sunlight in the evenings throughout the year. This would benefit tonnes of people who work standard hours, giving us more time to enjoy outdoor activities, exercise, and socialize. Imagine the positive impact on our physical and mental well-being!
  2. No more dark winter evenings: The deeper months of winter can be a challenging time, with short days and limited sunlight. By moving to GMT+10, we can eliminate the dreaded "no sunlight at all" evenings and improve our quality of life during winter months. This change would also be beneficial for those suffering from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), who often struggle with the lack of sunlight during this time.
  3. Increased safety and crime reduction: Studies have shown that more daylight in the evenings can lead to reduced crime rates and improved road safety, as people are more likely to be out and about during well-lit hours. This is particularly important for children, the elderly, and other vulnerable groups.
  4. Boost to local economies: With more sunlight in the evenings, people are more likely to go out, shop, and dine after work, providing a boost to local businesses. This increased consumer activity could help strengthen our communities and support small businesses.
  5. Elimination of the biannual clock change hassle: The twice-yearly clock changes are not only inconvenient, but they can also lead to health issues such as sleep disruption, increased accidents, and reduced productivity. By abolishing DST and adopting GMT+10 permanently, we can save ourselves from this unnecessary headache.
  6. Reduced energy consumption: Although DST was originally designed to save energy, studies show that its impact on energy consumption is negligible or even counterproductive. With the advances in energy-efficient technologies and our growing awareness of climate change, moving to GMT+10 can provide a more consistent and environmentally friendly solution.
In conclusion, adopting GMT+10 year-round and abolishing Daylight Saving Time would bring numerous benefits to our lives, including more sunlight after work, improved safety, a boost to local economies, and a reduction in energy consumption. Additionally, we would eliminate the biannual clock change hassle, making our lives just a bit easier.
Now is the time to raise awareness about this important issue and work towards a brighter future for all of us. If you agree, please consider sharing this post, discussing it with friends and family, and contacting your local representatives ( to express your support for the adoption of GMT+10 and the end of Daylight Saving Time.
Let's come together to make a change that benefits everyone and improves our quality of life. Let's embrace the sunlight and work towards a future where we can all enjoy the extra daylight after work, year-round!

2023.03.29 05:01 IhavemyCat True ID fans will remember old episodes! ID repackages OLD episodes into new series

I have been watching these one off new "series" that they create and you can tell they are OLD ID episodes from OLD series that they use to create a new one. You can tell by the fact that not each episode looks the same. One has a narrator, the second one doesn't. The cinematography is different in each one. The way they are produced if different. WE ARE NOT STUPID!!!
I miss vintage ID. Where there were promos for new exciting series ALL the time and each night was something new and fresh. And I know its not lack of crime that is causing this. Ever since Discovery Plus happened, ID the network has gone DOWNHILL.

2023.03.29 04:48 n_this_thread I (33M) feel like I'm at a crossroads with my GF (31F) concerning her ex. Family event troubles, text messages, and a hidden past.

I've been with my girlfriend for a little over a year. We talked about previous relationships as we were getting going. She told me she was in a 6-year relationship with someone a bit before me. She mentioned early that she and her ex were still friends and wanted to continue with that. She told me that she knew it was cliche to say, but she thought they could go back in their relationship and just be friends. I told her I trusted her and would support her however she wanted to handle it. Simple as that. To be clear: I don't want to be friends with an ex, and I told her that. It feels like some forced thing. I'm fine with being friendly, but I don't really know that a friendship hinged on our mutually non-platonic love for the same girl is really a healthy thing. I understand others feel differently. It makes me uncomfortable.
However, the situation and my stance towards it have probably complicated the relationship in tough ways.
Family. Because she was in the other relationship for so long, the ex is still friends with her family. Hang out every week type of friends. Siblings. Mother and Father. Everyone. Early on, my GF confided in me that her ex accused her of trying to take away his friends by inviting me to family events. She told me she said to him that she wasn't going to not invite me because it made him uncomfortable. Good on her. However, as I said, I don't really want to be friends with this guy, and I certainly am not interested in spending an afternoon/evening hanging with him. So, there are weekly family hangs and I don't go to them. This is probably a mistake on my part, and I think my GF resents me for it, to some extent. My guess is you're going to tell me she's right, and I accept that. It's taken some time for me to accept that, but I think I can. But I fail to see how I am supposed to put my best foot forward with her family in a situation like this.
Next, there are communications between the two. He texts her often. I don't know how often or how often she responds, but I can gauge from how often he messages her when we're together that it's a lot, each day. I don't snoop and never have, but we hang out a good amount and she's opened her phone directly in front of my eyes. I find the tone of the messages to be somewhat inappropriate: guilt-tripping, for example. Something like:
Him: So, what are you up to tonight?
20 minutes pass
Oh...guess not.
Like as if she must respond to him promptly and that he's going to feel bad if she doesn't. There's a pressure here that I really, really don't like, bordering on hate. And that's just one example. Now, let me introduce the next wrinkle in the fold: he has threatened suicide before in relation to their breakup. My GF refused to engage with him (again, great on her!), but her family "took care of him," she said. So he gets depressed about being broken up with her and her own family makes him feel better about it. I feel like a villain in this story, and I just exist. That's my crime. I have never once tried to set boundaries for her family (who I don't really even know at all) or her. I never will. She's her own person and she can make her own decisions. Who am I to say otherwise? However, I do pay these weird prices, it feels like, for my neutrality.
Despite all that being properly heavy and hard to navigate, I actually recently discovered something bigger. I had heard this person's first name, but I never had a last. One day, I was laying on my GF's lap, and his full name flashed on her screen right in front of my eyes, just for a split second before she swiped it away. Later, I was curious and I decided to google it. Not my best moment, but I know virtually nothing about this person--their social media (liking every single one of my GF's posts in 1 second flat) is private and is not a real name. He has a very, very limited online presence. I came up with nothing, and I'm pretty darn good at googling. Well, I found out why. Weeks later, I had a random thought about how a particular part of it was spelled. I went back, tried a different way, and boom. Here's what I found:
My GF's ex is an accused and convicted sex offender. And it is a serious, serious crime. What came up was the court records and news reports. I read them all the way through, multiple times. They are absolutely, positively damning. I would think pretty much every commonly decent human being on the planet would have convicted him, given the objective evidence against him. He served extensive jail time for multiple crimes in this realm.
But the real surprise to me is tri-fold:
I was floored, and, frankly, I am still floored that this has been hidden from me--especially put into the context above. I am a competitor in this person's world, and, based on what I read, he's a fucking psychopath. I should have been told about this for no other reason than to allow me to weigh my own safety. I understand reform. I understand people can and do change.
Bonus: About three months into our relationship, we went out to a show. It was a multi-weekend, multi-day event. We went one day. As we were getting ready to leave, she looked over my shoulder and said "hey..there's my ex." I did not look over my shoulder and just basically said "Woah...crazy world," grabbed her hand, and we walked out the exit in the other direction. I asked her as we were walking out if she told him she was going to this event. She responded, a touch aggressively, "He's not stalking me," so I dropped it. There was just something in her voice that said to leave it alone. Even before I knew about this person's past, I heavily suspected that he did stalk her there to that event. It's the very first thing that came to mind at the moment, which is why I asked her about it. Now, though, I'm even more convinced. It's so unlikely that of all the days this event was put on (same event every day), he just happened to be at the one that we went to. It's astronomically unlikely. Big city. Tons of people. It's either fucking creepy or one hell of a coincidence.
I know that was a lot, but I had a lot to get off my chest. Here are some questions: Why wouldn't my GF tell me about this person's past? Does she just not trust me? How do I navigate this last bit or any of what's above? Do I confront her (politely) about what I know? Do I wait for her to tell me if she ever does? Do I show up to family events to make my GF happier but potentially anger this dude that did something unimaginably evil? The friction of all of this is really affecting our relationship, and I think things are twisting sideways at times because of what's above.
Otherwise, things are good, which I know sounds like a joke, after all that. But our personal 1-on-1 relationship is sound. We have great times together, just the two of us, but relating to the family is bad. Relating to the ex is bad. I'm not sure what to do about all this.
TLDR: My GF's ex is interfering with my relationship, indirectly. He hangs out regularly with her family and accuses her of trying to take that away from him by wanting to bring me. I never have gone, meaning I've not met a lot of her family, and probably made my GF upset. To boot, he constantly messages her things that I think demonstrate he is still in love with her and trying to actively get her back. In secret, I have uncovered that he is a convicted sex offender. She has never told me. How do I navigate this?

No experience necessary for the laborer custodial or maintenance mechanic positions. It helps on the interview but you can surely think of maintenance related experience to relay for an interview. Based on fixing things around your house, the car etc. Always mention working safely.

Pro tip: You can apply for any job that has an exam opening and the test is administered local to yourself. Make sure you're serious and score decently; you can turn down the job offer. Keep a physical copy of your exam score, I believe they are good for two years.
The reason is: These job postings can be posted externally at capacity for testing, meaning they will not allow you to take the exam if they have enough qualified applicants. However, if you have a test score on the books, you are a qualified applicant.

Explanation of MVO/TTO to save time:
MVO= CDL B Can only drive box trucks on public roads, can drive anything for moves on postal property.
TTO= CDL A Can drive anything.

USPS provides the training. (Maintenance jobs at least. TTO and management...GOOD LUCK)

You don't have to be crazy to work here. We'll train you. Everything but proper email usage.

2023.03.29 04:40 scooterflaneuse 114th Precinct March Community Council Meeting Highlights: an army of pedestrian advocates and a couple of old guys complaining about those pesky kids jaywalking

The president of the community council, Ann Bruno, opened the meeting with what seems to be her usual rituals. She asked us all to stand and say the Pledge of Allegiance, said it was nice to see people in person and not in Zoom windows, and said Deputy Inspector Kenneth Gorman (commander of the 114th precinct) was “the best.” Last time she opened the meeting in almost exactly the same way. Next up was the recognition of the “Cops of the Month” (yes, this is really the title of the award) for February: two partners who got the award, not for any one incident, but for a “plethora” of “police work” (Gorman’s words, which I think means nobody did anything exceptionally heroic this month).
Gorman gave his rundown of crime: crime is down 6% overall, according to him, and down in every crime category, except rape (up by 1 rape) and grand larcenies (up by 8). He said the grand larcenies were mostly scams (same as last month).
And….that was it! Almost. Gorman apparently asked if there were questions at this point, but people either didn’t hear or assumed that Gorman was only asking for questions about the grand larcenies, because no one raised their hand. Ann Bruno was about to wrap up the meeting when u/Miser realized what was going on and immediately jumped up with a question. Gorman trudged back to the podium after he’d believed he was home free.
u/Miser asked what Gorman thought the 114th Precinct had done over the past month to be a better “Vision Zero” partner. Gorman appeared unsure of what u/Miser meant. u/Miser sought to clarify that Gorman knew what he meant by “Vision Zero partner”, and Gorman said he absolutely did. u/Miser then rephrased and asked what specific things the precinct had done in the last month to keep pedestrians and others on the street safe. Gorman said that overall traffic injuries were down since last month by ten incidents, but that there was a slight increase in pedestrian injuries specifically. He also talked about enforcement and said that in the last month, the precinct had issued 450 parking summonses, almost 600 moving violations, and done an “operation” on illegal parking on 21st St yielding 50 parking tickets issued to commercial vehicles.
Once u/Miser asked that question, several other people took the ball and ran with it. The conversation was almost entirely dominated with pro-pedestrian safe-streets advocates. Some highlights:
· A woman in a blue shirt asked where she could report it if there was a particular intersection where drivers were constantly running red lights/stop signs, and asked for specific email addresses/portals. An officer provided an email address to report intersections: [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]).
· A man in a burgundy shirt said he feels safe in Astoria except when crossing the street. He has 2 kids and almost gets hit once a week. He said focusing on specific hot spot intersections wasn’t enough and we had to change overall attitudes of drivers, perhaps through more enforcement. Gorman gave his usual spiel about how cops can’t be everywhere.
· u/Miser said that the whole point of deterrence was so that cops didn’t *have* to be everywhere, because drivers would fear consequences if they drove dangerously. Gorman had a pretty good rhetorical jiu-jitsu at this point: he said, correctly, that it wasn’t his job to instill fear. He also pointed to the number of summonses issued as proof of enforcement. u/Miser said he understood that but deterrence was part of the job, and it seemed obvious that drivers in Astoria feel they can drive as fast as they want, run red lights, and park wherever they want, with no consequences.
· A woman in a leather jacket spoke up to say she almost got killed recently while crossing the street with her dog. She asked the NYPD to point out problem intersections so we could all email DOT to ask for improvements. Gorman agreed, said we could start at the intersection of Hoyt and 31st, and said he would provide numbers.
· An elderly man, who later was revealed to be the president of the Italian-American Federation, declared that pedestrian injuries aren’t always the driver’s fault, because the other day a young kid jumped right in front of his car, and the kid’s mom just laughed. He said all this in THE most classic New York Italian-American accent—it was the best thing about his comment.
· A man in a Tommy Hilfiger jacket noted that he could find crime statistics online through the NYPD website, but moving violations seemed to disappear from month to month. He asked if there was a place he could look for previous months’ violations. He also noted that a large percentage of all the moving violations in February were for tinted windows, and asked why that was a priority. Gorman said he would have to “look into” providing this “historical” data. Gorman also claimed that the tinted windows were a pedestrian safety issue as well as an officer safety issue: he said it’s hard for the driver to see out of tinted windows and therefore won’t see pedestrians. Hilfiger also asked further pointed questions about data.
· A man in a gray jacket said he was a stay-at-home dad, echoed the concerns of Burgundy Shirt, and said the Hoyt/31st intersection was especially dangerous. He said he sees cars running the light there once a day, not just once a week. He asked the precinct to instill respect, if not fear, with enforcement, because this is a serious danger to kids. Gorman said he put officers near that intersection and could get a speed camera but only through DOT, and NYPD could ask for that, but so could citizens.
· A woman asked about enforcing the busway on 21st St. Gorman essentially blamed the redesign of 21st St because it took away a lane and added a busway. He claimed this increased traffic and was bad for cars and (somehow) for pedestrians (it’s not, I cross that street every day and the redesign makes it infinitely better).
· Finally, an elderly man asked where he could look up how many pedestrians got summonses for jaywalking. I think he thought this was a stinging rebuttal to everything everyone else had said.
Unlike last month, the tone of almost all the comments was pro-safe streets. Already, the collective advocacy and voice of everyone involved is having an impact on the culture of these meetings.

2023.03.29 04:40 Rainbow6SiegeCreator What If Legends and Canon Merged? Part 8: A Bolstered Hope

On the barren desert world of Tatooine, we see two sapphire sabers clashing with 4 soldiers surrounding them. After the younger of the two jedi was knocked to the ground, he began to notice a firefight in the orbit above.
Luke: Master, look up in orbit!
Obi-Wan: An Imperial Star destroyer? Here? There hasn’t been one around here in years.
In the battle above, Vader had commanded that the ship be neutralized for capture. Many rebels aboard the now captured ship took defensive positions the Empire prepared to breach the door. As the door was being sliced open, the explosion had sent fragments and smoke throughout the hall, giving the stormtroopers ample time to fire upon their targets. With the rebels on the backpedal, two inconspicuous droids made their way to Princess Leia so she could move the plans away from the ship.
When the captain of the security forces was surrounded, Raymus Antilles became the first target of interrogation by Lord Vader.
Vader: Search the servers for the plans.
Stormtrooper: Yes, my lord.
As a squad of stormtroopers cleared the server room. They began searching through the many files before sending one trooper back to report their lack of files.
Stormtrooper: The plans are not in the primary computer.
Vader: Where are those plans you've transmitted?
Raymus: We have received no such transmissions. This is a consular ship, we're on a diplomatic mission.
Vader: If this is a consular ship where is the ambassador?
Before Captain Antilles could answer, he had succumbed to the choke hold Vader had him in, and when Vader realized this, he had literally tossed him aside.
Vader: Commander, tear this ship apart until you found those plans, and bring me the passengers. I want them alive!!!
As Vader's forces swept through the ship, officers aboard the destroyer had seen an escape pod.
Officer 1: Sir, one of the escape pods has been jettisoned.
Officer 2: Hold your fire. There's no life forms aboard.
Officer 1: We need to report this to Lord Vader.
In one of the darker sections of the ship, 3 stormtroopers came across a woman in a white dress and cloak.
Stormtrooper 1: There's one. Set for stun.
After a brief exchange and 1 stormtrooper is killed, Leia then collapses after getting stunned and the pair of stormtroopers are about to bring her to Vader.
Stormtrooper 1: Inform Lord Vader we found our ambassador.
As Vader had intensely debated the Princess, Obi-wan, Luke, and the Bad Batch had found the escape pod with two droids that Kenobi could definitely recognize, despite not seeing them in almost 20 years.
3PO: Thank the Maker! I'm so glad that you came to rescue us. We came from a ship that rudely sent us away.
Kenobi: C-3PO? R2-D2?
3PO: Yes, I am C-3PO, human/cyborg relations, and this is my counterpart, R2-D2, who has been saying repeatedly to find an Obi-wan Kenobi.
Luke: Then you found him. Master, how do you know these droids?
Kenobi: That is a story for when we return back home.
When the pair of Jedi and clones returned to Kenobi's hut, R2 went to Kenobi and gave him the button input and Leia's message began to play for all of them to see.
Leia: General Kenobi. Years ago. You had served my father in the clone wars, from what he had told me prior to your rescuing me from Daiyu, you were a capable leader of men, and able to win battles for the Republic. Now, the Alliance is in its darkest hour. Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi. You're my only hope.
Obi-Wan had remembered rescuing her on Daiyu almost a decade ago, and knew that this would be a good test for Luke to face Vader. When the Bad Batch were curious to know what the plan was, Obi-wan had begun formulating a rescue attempt.
Kenobi: We need to head to Alderaan and meet with Bail once again. If we can meet with another spy within the network, we can use their ship to slip past the Imperial patrols.
Tech: If we do get caught, I can create some fake chain codes and get us past if we get stopped.
Luke: What do I need to do when we get to Alderaan, Master?
Kenobi: You will stay at my side in case Vader makes a surprise visit.
Luke: Vader? I'm not sure I'm ready for this.
Kenobi: Don't give into fear. It leads to the Dark side.
Luke: Yes, Master.
Aboard the Death Star, Leia is brought to the cell block and Vader begins the interrogation. A black, spherical droid with a syringe containing a truth serum floated into the cell approaching the Princess after a path was cleared.
After the serum entered Leia's system, Vader began to assist the hallucination, and slipped in a little bit of the truth unbeknownst to both parties.
VadeBail: Princess, this is your father. I've been cut off from my royal guard and need to retreat from Imperial Forces. Where is a rebel base I can evacuate to?
Despite Vader's efforts, Leia had resisted the urge to tell the truth, at the cost of immense pain and suffering. When the serum wore off Vader took the droid and reported to Tarkin on the observation deck.
Vader: Her resistance to the mind probe is astonishing, but she will break soon.
Tarkin: I understand, Lord Vader. We have to meet with the rest of the Moffs on level 81C.
As the many officers and Moffs have a heated discussion about the very station they are residing in, Tarkin and Vader come in and their mere presence had stopped the bickering, if only for a small moment.
Moff: The Rebellion, who's too well equipped, mind you, will continue to garner support in the Imperial Senate…
Tarkin: The Imperial Senate is no longer a concern to us. We had just received word that the Emperor has dissolved the council permanently. The last remnants of the Old Republic have been swept away for good.
Moff: This cannot be! How will we maintain control without the bureaucracy?
Tarkin: Regional governors, General Tagge. They will keep the systems in line through fear and maintain control over these territories.
Tagge: Again, what of the Rebels? If the plans remain in their hands, they may find a weakness and exploit it.
Vader: The plans in question will return to Imperial custody.
Motti: Any revolt made against this station by the rebels will be a futile gesture, no matter how much data they obtained. We are now standing inside the ultimate power in the universe. My suggestion is that we use it!
Vader: The power you boast about this technological terror, has inflamed and bloated your pride. The ability and decision to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the power of the Force.
As the Moff began to insecurity salvage his pride in the station to Lord Vader of all people, Vader had grown tired of this Moff's rambling and discrediting of the Force, and raised his hand to hold his tongue for the officer, or rather his throat.
Vader: I find your lack of faith disturbing.
Tarkin had noticed one of the moffs struggling and realized that Vader's physical domineering would further divide the conference and dely any decisions the Empire had to make.
Tarkin: Enough of this pointless bickering! Vader, release him!
Vader: As you wish.
Motti then began to regain his breathing and a newfound level of fear for the Dark lord.
Tarkin: Vader will extract the location of the Rebel Fortress and crush the Rebellion in one swift stroke by the time this station is operational.
Tarkin then adjourned the meeting and when the officers left, he sent a communication to the cell block.
Tarkin: Bring the princess to the observation deck. Her interrogation is far from over.
Station Trooper: Yes, Sir.
Tarkin: Observation deck, set course of Alderaan.
Officer: Yes, Sir.
When Vader and Tarkin arrived at the observation deck, they were greeted by the troopers escorting Princess Leia. The leader of the Imperial Moffs then mocked a courteous greeting to the rebellious princess and began his own methods of interrogation.
Tarkin: Princess Leia, how lovely to see you again.
Leia: Governor Tarkin, I knew I smelled a certain familiar stench when I was brought on board, as well as who held the leash of this mechanical monster.
Tarkin: Charming to the last. Before I sign the order of your execution, allow yourself to be my guest in unveiling the full power of this station, assuring that no one will be able to oppose the Emperor.
Leia: The tighter you make your grip, Governor, the more star systems will slip right through your fingers.
Tarkin: Not after this little ceremony, my dear. Since this is a special occasion, I will let you choose which planet will be destroyed first. Depending on your choice, I may disregard your execution.
Leia: The fact you have the guts to end my life surprises me. I never took you for someone to do such a thing.
Tarkin: Since you have proven yourself reluctant to give us the location of your rebel base, this station's inaugural target shall be your home planet of Alderaan.
Leia: No. Alderaan is peaceful! We have no arms to use and would never…
Tarkin: Then you would prefer another target? A military target? Then name the system!!!
Leia couldn't maintain her professional facade any longer and knew she had to pick a system to appease the Imperials' demands.
Vader had told Tarkin prior to bringing her to the observation deck that if she was to choose Dantooine, the place had been cleared out by Imperial Forces when they rescued him.
Tarkin: This will be the final time I ask you. Where is the rebel base, child?
Leia: Dantooine. They're… They're on Dantooine.
Tarkin then began to feel satisfied with the answer and continued with his operation to destroy Alderaan and continue to psychologically torment the young princess.
Tarkin: There. You see, Lord Vader? This one is capable of reason. Continue the operation and you may fire when ready.
Leia: What?!
Tarkin: You're far too trusting. Dantooine has been clear of any significant rebel activity for quite some time now and is unworthy of a proper demonstration. I will credit you for giving me some true information, but it was not the information I needed. No need to worry, Your Highness. Your rebel friends will be dealt with soon enough.
As the main superlaser eye of the Death Star began to charge, the people of Alderaan had no idea of their imminent demise from not only galactic records, but off the galactic map entirely. One such fighter, who had been punished years ago for insubordination was about to reenter the fight when the Empire cut his freedom to operate short.
Saw: I understand that my actions on Geonosis years ago were wrong, and that I had made a tactically unsound move against the Empire. I thank the ones that had rescued us and I apologize for the men I abandoned in pursuit of a goal that consumed me and made me act without honor.
Bail: You have served your sentence and we need your ability to lead now more than ever. Are you willing to keep yourself under control when being handed the responsibility of leadership once again?
A captain of the Alderaan protection detail had warned Bail Organa of the Empire's presence in the system with a large moon-like object appearing in their skies.
Saw looked up and saw it from his seat and whispered what would be his final words.
Saw: No… So this is how it ends. I'm ready. I'm coming, Steela.
As the eight small beams of light focused into a single beam of energy, every citizen of Alderaan sought cover, but the energy blast was too much for everything to withstand. When the blast reached the palace, Bail, Breha, Saw and every citizen, structure, and ship, as well of the planet itself, became nothing but debris, asteroids, and a symbol of the Empire's new capability of destruction.
Moments before the destruction of the planet, The Bad Batch had looked around for any sign of Luke's uncle and aunt. When Luke found the group near a destroyed homestead with Owen and Beru shot and beaten to death by Tusken raiders, Luke began to examine the bodies of the closest family he had for a little over half his life. Obi-Wan found the group and saw his apprentice begin shedding tears over who had been his guardians and family, something Kenobi knew his father had, but in Luke's case it was a more stable family than Anakin's. Luke remembered his Uncle showing him the unmarked stones near the homestead belonging to his biological grandmother and his step grandfather, and began carrying them to the burial plots near the two graves made over 2 decades ago. As the Bad Batch helped Luke bury them, Obi-Wan had some words of advice for the young Skywalker that he had regrettably neglected to give Anakin.
Kenobi: I never told your father this because I was too focused on my mission before the Clone Wars. Even though they had no belief in it like we do, they too are now one with the Force. If you need time to think about your path from this point forward, whatever you choose, I will completely understand.
Luke: It's alright, Master Kenobi. I want to continue my path as a Jedi, like my father before me. I understand why they showed me the graves of my grandparents and why they kept the truth about my father from me. When I chose to go with you, when I was a kid, I dedicated myself to the memory of who my father was. I still do so today. I will not let the memories of my father, my uncle, my aunt, nor even my mother be squandered in my path to be a Jedi.
Kenobi: I am so proud of you, Luke. Your father would be too.
Hunter: I understand the loss of a home, Luke. We all do.
Tech: Yes. Change is inevitable and if we take advantage of it, it'll be for the better.
Luke: Thank you all. Master, I have an idea. You and I will take the landspeeder and head into Mos Eisley and we'll find someone to take us to Alderaan and rescue the Princess.
Tech: What about the Marauder? We can take you there just fine.
Kenobi: You will be hunting the Tuskens that destroyed the homestead and killed the Lars family. Wrecker, you will pose as a wanderer and wizard sent to bring oblivion to the Tuskens.
Wrecker: Do I still get to blow stuff up?
Hunter: Yes, Wrecker. You're "commanding" explosions.
Wrecker: Oooooooooohhhhh!!!!!! I LIKE the sound of THAT!
As Wrecker and the Bad Batch tormented the tuskens, Luke and Obi-Wan went into town to find a member of their spy network and sneak them to Alderaan. When they pulled up to the cantina, the bartender gave them notice about the droids needing to stay outside. When a large hairy creature greeted the master, Obi-Wan understood him and beckoned Luke to follow him to the table where the Wookiee sat.
Han: My copilot, Chewbacca, tells me that you and a few others need a ride to Alderaan.
Kenobi: Yes, and you are.
Han: I'm Han Solo. Captain of the Millennium Falcon. What’s the cargo?
Kenobi: Let’s see, about six passengers, two droids, and no questions asked.
Han You are asking me to transport a lot of people. Given that amount, I have to take a certain fee for any extra passengers. I’d say that would get you about… let’s say… 24,000 credits.
Luke: Master, we can get a pretty decent and comfortable ship with that price.
Chewie then “nudged’ Han, although harder than a human is used to, to drop the price because of who they were.
Han: Alright, Chewie. Fine. I’ll drop the price. If we don’t get a real profit from these guys Jabba will leaving more than a slime trail wherever he goes. Alright, gentlemen, I’m willing to drop the price by 30%...
Chewie roared in a slight protest.
Han: Ok, 45%, because he likes your kind of people. Given that discount, you’ll owe me about 13,200 credits.
Kenobi: Sounds reasonable enough, if it’s a fast ship.
Han: Fast ship? You’ve never heard of the Millenium Falcon?! It’s the ship that made the Kessel run in less than twelve parsecs. Name me one other ship that has done that or even anything close to it!
Kenobi: Alright. We’ll pay you 5,040 now, plus 17,400 when we reach Alderaan.
Han: 22? Hmm. Alright, old man, you got yourself a deal. Meet us in Hangar bay 77 when you’re ready.
When the Jedi left the cantina, Chewbacca went to get the repairs underway and prepared for a fight with anyone trying to stop them. Luke then contacted the spies they had assisted and told them to link with the bad batch. When the Clones dropped the ship in one of the other hangar bays, Tech used the forged chain code and met the group. After a confirmational exchange of ships, The Bad Batch received communications about the deal their Jedi commanders had struck with another deep cover spy.
Just as Han was about to leave the cantina himself, he was stopped by a Rodian with a blaster to his chest. When the pair sat back down, Han explained his tightness for credits to the Rodian messenger of Jabba the Hutt, to no avail. After a few more exchanges of quips and empty promises, both fired their blasters at the same time, but Han’s was the shot that landed in the Rodian’s chest, while the Rodian’s landed on the floor, startling the next customer that walked in. After shots were fired, Han paid the bartender for any damages that were caused by the short firefight.
When the Bad batch got to the hangar bay, they decided to wait by the door and split up walking around to blend in and waited on the Jedi as well as the pilot of their transport. As an Imperial squad came up to the pair near the landspeeder, the squad asked for their identification, but the Jedi have been practicing.
Stormtrooper: Let me see your ID’s please.
Obi-Wan: You don’t need to see our identifications.
Stormtrooper: ‘We don’t need to see your identifications.’
Luke: You will apologize for interrupting our business.
Stormtrooper: ‘We apologize for interrupting your business.’
Kenobi: Move along.
Stormtrooper: Move along. Move along.
As Jabba found Solo, who had snuck up behind him and Han made his case personally. After convincing the large slug-like crime lord to give him more time to pay the debt he owed, Boba had a strange suspicion that that turn of events was not going to transpire.
A black hooded figure with a comlink had found the Millenium Falcon and notified the Imperial Garrison to meet him near the hangar bays. The squad commander had asked for directions and the black-hooded spy pointed through the doorway to Bay 77. As the Bad Batch boarded the YT-1300 freighter, Luke and Obi-wan were right behind them and as Han and Chewbacca were about to board and get it up and running, the squad of stormtroopers had rushed into the hangar bay and Han landed a few well-placed shots, before Chewie fired up the engines and escaped the clutches of the sand troopers on Tatooine.
On the other side of the spaceport, another rebel spy group took the Marauder back to Yavin 4 to take the heat off of the Falcon.
When the coast was clear, the group came out of the hidden compartments in the floor of the ship Han used to smuggle spice. Han and Obi-Wan were coming up with a plan that involved disabling the tractor beam, rescuing the princess, and leaving the station. Tech, Han, Luke and Hunter were the only ones that could fit the Stormtrooper armor so they were going to don the disguises. Echo and Kenobi were going to disable the tractor beam, and Wrecker was going to stay with the droids and update the team regarding the ship.
Han had called out for some assistance with a lot of "cargo" to offload and Echo and Tech blasted the four that came up and stripped them of their armor and weapons. Luke then donned his armor and Obi-Wan held onto his apprentice's blade as the pair split up to perform their parts of the plan.
Wrecker stayed in the Falcon and kept a watch on the two droids while the rest of them went along with the plan. When the group made it to the observation post above the hangar, they decided to get their nerves out in the air.
Tech: I can concur with Rex. These Stormtrooper helmets are really difficult to see out of.
Hunter: Can't say I agree. I'm not having any problems seeing out of this.
Echo: Because Tarkin probably saw your helmet design and mass produced it for the stormtrooper design.
Han: Cut it out! I need to think!
Obi-Wan: Echo, you're with me.
Han: Where are you two going?
Kenobi: Disabling the tractor beam like we planned.
Han: Alright, old man. At least someone remembers the plan.
Kenobi: You know your position, Luke. May the Force be with you all.
After the Negotiator and Clone snuck their way to the tractor beam control room, Han and the rest of the "stormtroopers" began "escorting" their wookiee prisoner to the cell block to get the princess from her cell. Whenever the group was alone, they'd have their own conversations about the past, opinions about those they just met, and put them aside when they regrouped.
After X1 had finished his Force-assisted torture, Leia was visibly shaking from the nightmares X1 put into her mind. In her mind, she kept the image of the Jedi who rescued her and the hope that the rebellion remained safe. The lightsaber wielding commander then felt a disturbance in the force and decided to inform his master.
X1: The princess has been interrogated, but I saw in her mind a forest with ruins, it was dark inside what looked like a temple, but the images flashed at a blazing speed. Also, I feel a disturbance in the Force.
Vader: Excellent work, my apprentice. I have felt it too, but it seems familiar to me.
X1: The one that I have felt is someone far younger. Could it possibly be an apprentice? As Vader and X1 continued to identify who they found in the Force, Vader figured it out and ordered X1 to follow him. They were to update Tarkin about who they found.
Back with the Cell block, the officers and other stormtroopers were killed and another officer had tried to check on the cell block from the comms.
Officer: We heard blaster fire coming from your cell block. What’s wrong?
Han: Uh, uh, my apologies. There was a slight weapons malfunction. We’re alright now. Thank you.
Officer. We’ll send a medical team immediately to your location.
Han: NO, no! One of the stray shots triggered a reactor leak and it’s a rather large one. I repeat, large leak, very dangerous.
Officer: Who is this? What’s your Identification number?
Han had no idea what to tell the officer next and in his stress, fired at the comms and sped up the rescue plan. Luke opened the cell to see Leia get up from her cell’s bed/seat and comment about his height.
Luke: Huh? Oh, yeah. I’m Luke Skywalker, we’re here to rescue you. My master is Obi-Wan Kenobi.
The mention of Obi-Wan sparked the Princess to join in the escape and Chewie, Tech, Hunter, and Han were holding back the incoming waves of Stormtroopers trying to find a way out. When Luke found a grate, he told Han to cover him, but Leia took the blaster and covered him while he used the Force to remove the grate. When the wookiee, clones, smuggler, princess, and jedi padawan jumped into the grate, Luke sealed the grate shut with the Force and they found out that they were in the trash compactor.
Back with the elder Jedi and the clone, they found the tractor beam terminals but Echo did his best to act like a droid doing maintenance. What moved the troopers away from the clone was the Jedi making an imaginary stone appear and knock on the walls, forcing the troopers to check it out. When the tractor beam generators were deactivated, the Jedi and Clone went their separate ways back to the Falcon. When Vader and X1 approached Tarkin they gave him their confirmed identities of the jedi.
Vader: He is here.
Tarkin: Obi-Wan Kenobi?
X1: He also has an apprentice with him. We will put an end to these Jedi and grind the rebel’s efforts to a halt.
Tarkin then recieved a communication from another officer about the Princess escaping her cell with some help. Vader then ordered a new squad of troopers to report to the hangar where the Falcon was kept and capture any others who are aboard or nearby.
As the stormtroopers scrambled to find the Princess and her rescue party, the droids stopped the trash compactor from crushing the group, and when they got the uncomfortable plastoid armor off, Luke departed from the group to get his saber back. As the clones, smuggler, and wookiee saw the Falcon in the hangar bay they had to plan how to get past the stormtroopers.
Leia: You came in that thing? You’re much braver than I thought.
Han: See, fuzzball, I told you she would be interested.
Leia: Keep it in check, flyboy.
In the hangar bay, Wrecker began to get a bit nervous and saw the dorids moving the mechanism before hearing stormtroopers secure the hangar, and lots of them. Before X1 joined his master, he planted a tracking beacon on the Falcon so they could escape and lead them to the rebel base. Just as Echo reunited with the group, Obi-wan had begun hearing a breathing along with two sets of footsteps. Vader and Obi-wan activated their blades with Luke’s gaze fixed on Vader, while X1 had his eyes focused on Luke.
Vader: I’ve been waiting for you, Kenobi. We meet again at last. The circle is now complete. When I left you, I was but the learner, now I am the master.
Kenobi: Only a master of evil, Sith.
As the two blades clashed, X1 had begun charging at Luke with his saber ignited. Luke snapped out of the stare of awe and focussed on his first test. He activated his blade before X1’s sapphire blade could cut off the young padawn’s head with a reverse gripped slash.
X1: It’s been a very long while since I clashed blades with a Jedi. Didn't your so-called master teach you about underestimating your opponents?
Luke: You’d be surprised.
As the two continued clashing blades, X1 continued to use his own version of Dun Moc to excite himself and add more fury to his strikes. During one clash, Luke mentioned that he talked too much and broke the saber clash, landed a kick to his gut and pushed him into the adjacent wall knocking him out. Luke then made his way to confront Vader with Obi-Wan. Luke activated his blade and the duo managed to put Vader on the backpedal. When a blast door closed separating Luke and Obi-wan, Obi-wan was alone in facing Vader.
Vader: Your powers are weak, old man. Your apprentice is strong, but not strong enough.
Kenobi: He may have much to learn, but if you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine. You know you can’t win this, Sith.
As Luke saw Vader and his master dueling, even the stormtroopers took an interest in something that hadn’t happened in a little over 3 years for some, but only 3 days for others. This gave the rebels and droids a chance to escape, but Wrecker was ready for a firefight, and almost raring for one. As Luke saw his amster for what would be the last time, Kenobi surrendered himself to the will of the Force. As Vader took a downward slash from Kenobi’s left shoulder across his chest, but to the surprise of both Vader and Luke, Kenobi disappeared into thin air. This was a lesson that Kenobi had learned while in exile and while training Luke. He became one with the force the instant upon death.
Luke: NO!!!
With that, the stormtroopers focussed their fire on the escaping rebels, and Wrecker was having a blast, figuratively and literally. Luke activated his blade and deflected blaster fire with every shot that came his way, and when one shot hit the blast door’s control panel, Vader began to see the battle for himself. Luke had continued to fight off the Imperial blaster fire despite all the others telling him to get on board. As the Blast doors closed, the only voice that got Luke to budge was that of Kenobi. Vader had heard this and slowly became unsettled.
Kenobi Ghost: Run, Luke! Run!!
Vader: Kenobi?
As Luke ran for the Falcon, the crew lifted off and Vader ordered a squad of TIEs to pursue the Falcon.
X1: No, Master. We have to let the ship go.
Vader: You dare disobey me?!
X1: No, Master. I slipped a tracking device into the ship so we can jump to where the base is.
Vader: I see. Your training has served you well.
When the crew escaped, Wrecker and Hunter manned the top and bottom guns to repel the TIE fighter squadron sent to take them down. Luke had secured Leia and allowed himself to break down and let out some of his emotions, although slowly. In that moment, the voices in his head soothing him were Obi-Wan, Yoda, and a Jedi he had met on Mandalore once.
As Han and Chewbacca began maneuvering in ways that the TIEs were missing most of their shots, Wrecker and Hunter had each tagged 2 as Luke stood in the middle of the guns and closed his eyes. He reached out with the Force and threw one fighter into the other to the surprise of the clones in the turrets. After the last of the TIEs were shot down, they began heading back to Yavin, with Luke passed out from exhaustion. Wrecker carried the unconscious padawan to the bunks and when Leia woke up Luke, the group exited the Falcon and Han and Chewie collected the payment and began to store it in the Falcon.
Luke was going into the briefing when he was stopped by a Togruta.
Ahsoka: Luke. Hey. Are you alright?
Luke: Ahsoka? I thought you'd be in a deep cover operation.
Ahsoka: Master Yoda told me to look after you. I know what happened to Master Kenobi.
Luke: I'll meet up with you later. I have to get to this briefing.
As Luke got into the meeting, he listened to how the battle station was going to be attacked. In the Hangar bay, Leia and Chewbacca had been talking to Han to convince him to stay with the rebellion.
Han: With this payment, I can get that slimo off my back and be done with this Empire nonsense.
Leia: If you do get whoever it is you owe out of your life, what will you do next, in case you didn't realize it, your best friend has been part of our Alliance for years.
Han: What?! Why didn't you tell me, scruffy?
Chewie then explained to Han about it and Han had started thinking about ending their friendship with Chewie right then and there.
After the Bad Batch reunited with their ship, they found a familiar Twi'lek and caught up on everything that went on between them. They even met a young Jacen Syndulla for a short while before hearing over the intercom that the Death Star had arrived in their orbit.
Leia: While the Empire may have found our location, we can still prevent them from wiping us out in both the surface and in orbit. Rex, you and Ahsoka prepare the ground forces for a ground assault and any reprisals after we destroy the station. Ahsoka, if Vader joins the ground assault, you take him down. X2, Grey Leader, you and your Squadron know your mission with Gold and Red squadrons.
As every pilot began boarding their fighters and bombers, Luke happened to run into an old friend.
Biggs: Luke?
Luke: Biggs!!!!
Biggs: What are you doing here? I thought you were still shooting womp rats on Tatooine!
Luke: I've actually been with Old Ben and learned some pretty cool skills.
Biggs: you got one of those laser sword things?
Luke: Yeah, but this was my father's.
Biggs: Still, a Jedi! Whaddaya know?!
Luke: It's a lifetime commitment, but we gotta get up there!
Biggs: Right! See you up there.
After the X-wings and Y-wings got up to orbit and every wing reported in.
X2: Grey Leader, Standing by.
Rebel Pilot 1: Gold Leader Standing by.
Rebel Pilot 2: Red 3, standing by.
Rebel Pilot 3: Gold 4, standing by.
Rebel Pilot 4: Red 2, standing by.
Rebel Pilot 5: Red Leader, standing by.
Biggs: Red 7, standing by.
Porkins: Red 6, standing by.
Grey 3: Grey 3, standing by.
Rebel Pilot 6: Gold 3, standing by.
Grey 2: Grey 2, standing by.
After many pilots fell in line, Luke was the last to finish it off before the rebels advanced on the station.
Luke: Red 5, standing by.
Back on the Ground, Wolffe had made himself known to the princess and offered to lead the ground assault when the battle above concluded. The princess granted his request due to his previous service in the Clone Wars.
Wolffe: Mech, get to the walker and take position near the left side of the temple! Massiff Squad, take your positions near the ruins and cover the walker as it comes by. Hunter, Tech, take a few soldiers and do some recon. Wrecker, stay near the AAC-2 tanks and tackle any additional heavy threats. And Rex…
Rex: I got my position, Wolffe, you gonna command the battle from the Walker?
Wolffe: Yes. What about the Commandos?
Rex: Boss, Fixer, cover the Recon team as they surveil the enemy.
Clones and Rebels: Yes, Sir!
As the battle began to rage above the surface of the battle station, Red Squadron handled the fighters, Grey Squadron targeted the turbolasers near the trench, and Gold Squadron was to deliver the ordinance into the exhaust port that was about two meters in diameter.
Inside the Death Star, Stormtroopers and pilots were scrambling to their fighters and X1 reconvened with his master as Vader began laying out the plan.
Vader: X1, You are to reboard your destroyer and take as many troops as you possibly can for a ground assault. You two pilots, with me.
X1: Master, I will lead the ground attack and catch the rebels off guard. After your role in the defense is done, reboard my destroyer. Let them think you are dead or at least out of commission.
Vader: Go to the other side of the planet before the assault begins.
X1: Yes, Master. All ground troops report to the hangar bays and board the Avarice.
When Vader and his TIE escorts joined the battle, the bombers began their attack through the trench. As the trio of TIEs pursued the bombers, many fighters were too occupied by the other fighters and turrets to divert their attention to Vader. In a few decisive moves by the Empire, all the Y-wings but Gold 2 were shot down, Red Leader, Red 6, and Red 9 were shot down.
Luke: Grey Leader, See if you can take off some of those TIEs, a couple of us are going into the trench.
X2: Copy, Red 5. Grey's 4, 3, and 5, go with Red Squadron and take down more of those fighters and turbolasers. Grey's 2 and 6, with me. We have to cover the trench.
Grey Squadron: Yes, Sir!
Gold 2: Red 3, This is Gold 2. Can you take a couple fighters and get the Imperials off me?!
Wedge: Copy, Gold 2.
Luke then switched on the targeting computer and had Red 7 and Red 2 covering him. Vader then made another attack run. Vader then took down the X-wing on the right and Luke realized that it was his best friend. After Luke was by himself, another voice spoke to him.
Kenobi Ghost: Use the Force, Luke.
With those words, Luke switched off his targeting computer and everyone monitoring Luke noticed.
Vader: The Force is strong with this one.
Rebel officer: Luke, you switched off your targeting computer. What's wrong?
Luke: Nothing. I'm alright.
When Vader had locked onto Luke's X-wing, a stray barrage of blaster bolts destroyed the TIE on Vader's right. This caught Luke and Vader by surprise, but Luke heard a familiar whoop from the smuggler who helped rescue the princess. When the TIE on Vader's left went Rogue and escaped the trench, Vader lost control of his fighter and flew out of the trench.
As Tarkin found a straight shot to the planet, Luke was speeding ever closer to the exhaust port.
Han: You're all clear, kid! Now let's blow this thing and go home!!!
As Luke took the shot, every rebel had their fingers crossed, and every Imperial Moff and officer that remained on the station had kept doing their duties and hoped that the rebels were quashed. As the proton torpedoes entered the port and Luke pulled up with every rebel ship, including the Falcon evacuated the battle station, one large explosion put an end to 2 decades of oppression on a large scale.
Han: Great shot, kid! That was one in a million!
After some more encouraging words from Obi-Wan's ghost. Luke came down from the adrenaline in his system and when the rebels landed, R2 had to go into the repair room and the rebels prepared a ceremony awarding Luke, Han, Chewbacca, Wedge, X2, and many others. Ahsoka and Rex were watching it and the togruta began to tear up because Luke's actions reflected that of her master.
Rex: I recognize that kind of flying anywhere in the galaxy.
Ahsoka: That's our Skyguy.
The following day, the rebels had prepared escape plans for the Empire's revenge. The AT-TE was positioned in a hidden side of the temple and covered in camouflage. The rebels and Clone specialists took their positions as Hunter led the Recon team of Tech, a few rebels, with Boss and Fixer covering their flanks.
Back at the base, Wolffe commanded the Vehicles from the AT-TE with Mech taking the pilot seat. As Rex and Ahsoka led the defense, X1 began leading the assault with Crosshair at his side once again.
With the clone recon team, Hunter found Crosshair with X1 and Hunter had to put aside his rage and report back to the Alliance command.
Hunter: Commander, We have a positive ID on the Imperial Assault. Crosshair is second in command.
Rex: I see. Massiff Squad, take your positions by the fountain.
Howzer: Right away, Sir! Boys, we need to hold the fountain. It's gonna be a clean path for the Empire if they don't make it through the ruins.
Tech: Wrecker, can you position yourself near the ruins and beat down any Imperial tanks?
Wrecker: Sure thing, Tech! I'm ready to blow some stuff up!!
When Leia had begun evacuating the transport ships, Luke, Han, Chewie and the princess had to find locations for a rebel base. As X1 began the charge he sent the walkers through the ruins and tanks through the hills. Crosshair stayed in cover moving with every shot he took.
As the Commandos saw X1 join the battle, they threw 2 thermal detonators at him, but X1 saw this coming and blocked it with the Force. As the two commandos fought the Imperial commander in hand to hand, X1 thought that these commandos would be easy pickings. After Fixer landed a mandalorian martial arts combo on the Imperial commander, the now bleeding commander thought that the fun was over. Boss drew his blaster and X1 drew his own and as the two began to fire, X1 threw Fixer towards the other commando. As the two commandos got up, they both charged the secret sith apprentice, but Boss was stabbed by the commander's sapphire blade. The blade had impaled his stomach, and X1 then slashed across the commando' chest. As the Commando collapsed on the ground, Fixer began firing his blaster at the commander, while X1 deflected every shot until the commando ditched the blaster and extended the wrist gauntlet blades and he lunged from above only to be suspended with the Force. After getting thrown, X1, twirled with the blade, cutting through his chest and decapitating the clone. X1 then pursued the rebels and joined his men.
As X2 had begun repairing the systems along with Echo, Shara had begun helping X2 take down the data spike and extracting the information before heading to the AA guns. When X2 had to reach a certain part on a high ledge, he tried jumping for it, but when he leaped high into the air, he grabbed the item and landed on his feet with some struggle. When X2 and Shara got the data extracted, Echo boarded the Marauder and went to pick up the rest of his squad.

2023.03.29 04:40 miller527 Commute home today

I take the train downtown 3 days a week. Most days it’s uneventful but I have had negative interactions with the homeless population which is undoubtedly echoed by other transit users quite a bit.
Today however I watched a man, clearly experiencing homelessness and struggling with some form of substance abuse, clean up an immense amount of trash. He walked up and down the platform and collected everything loose on the ground, dropping it into a nearby bin.
I spent the rest of my commute home self-reflecting, when was the last time I made this city a cleaner space for fellow Calgarians?
This shouldn’t detract from other people negative safety experiences. Just thought I should share a positive moment that reminded me everyone is human and worthy of empathy.

My options for the night are Sims, brownies, or Reddit. Sims and brownies are in another room, so here I am! And I really don’t wanna leave my bed after my workday.

Happy chatting :) Don’t know where to start? Tell me about your happy place in the world!

2023.03.29 04:27 fiberoreos 27 [F4M] Ready to be ghosted again. Or not. 😂

Hi! I have tried to find looking for this person I wanna spend the rest of my life with for a long time and still not getting any, so I am trying this again and hopefully it will work. I had a relationship before but it ended up ugly and personally, I wouldn’t want that to happen since, look, we’re getting older and dating after 25 especially if you only had one relationship your entire life is hard.
My name is Trish and I work in a call center hence why I am used in different timezones. I am chubby so expect body fats and stretch marks and what not. I crochet most of the time when I’m not working (or when I’m working too) but I reply fast! I graduated Pharmacy but working in where I’m at now is probably one of the best things that happened in my adult life. I may rant about it but hey, no work is perfect. I live with my family and we own a dog named Chewie. I am a mental health advocate, considering I am diagnosed with depression.
I love watching WWE, binge watching series (last was Supernatural and I am still hung up on the show, I haven’t started one again in 3 months) and loves true crime documentaries. An ideal date would be, well, coffee date in a fine afternoon where we can stroll in museums after, go to yarn shops and watch my facial expression change every time bc I heard it’s funny and gaze on the night sky. Cliche, I know.
I like going to concerts of artists or bands I really like, but I am a huge home body. I like staying in and just chill.
Who am I looking for? Someone I can connect to mentally and emotionally. I really wanna have a long term chat mate and hopefully it leads to something good! If you’re just gonna ghost me after 3 days, don’t bother sending messages.

2023.03.29 04:20 desseybabyy divorced parents, dad won’t leave mom alone

My parents have been divorced for about 5 years, because of my dads toxic behavior. He was always very physically and emotionally abusive towards her, and my siblings and I. The only real memories I have of my childhood are me blocking the front door with tears streaming down my face begging him not to leave us for the 5th time in a month. He would always came back and the cycle continued. Anyways long story short he’s always been a POS.
5 years ago we basically got evicted from our run down trailer and my mother and my siblings and I moved in with my grandparents. My mother desperately tried to get us into our own place over the years with her own paycheck but couldn’t afford it by herself. I eventually packed up and moved out of state after getting a good job elsewhere. While I was away, my mom found a decent house for rent but agreed that her and my father would have to live together and split rent in order to afford it (she was somewhat okay with this because my dad had seemingly grown out of most of his toxic behavior)
I recently moved back home because I was missing my mom and siblings, and my grandmother was diagnosed with terminal cancer so I just felt it was right to be close to everyone. I’m currently living with my mom/dad until may. I’m utterly sick of the behavior I’ve seen from my father since I’ve been back and I hate that my mother has to put up with this in order for my siblings to live a decent life.
First and foremost he’s DISGUSTING, doesn’t clean up after himself, he doesn’t see a doctor and his feet smell horrendous. I wish I was joking but it’s so bad to the point you can smell it as soon as you walk upstairs. He does this thing where he coughs and gets mucus in his throat and then just spits it anywhere (in sinks, trash can, even in the shower and doesn’t wash it off) it’s nauseating. He just recently tried to vent to me about how he had a girlfriend but she broke up with him because he lives with his ex wife, I shut down that conversation so quick. weird to talk about with your daughter and quite honestly I didn’t give af.
Since this alleged breakup he has been ALL OVER my poor mother, trying to rub her back, sitting next to her on a full open couch, going into her bedroom WHILE SHES SLEEPING, inappropriate texts, etc. I spoke to my mom about it and she told me it makes her so uncomfortable. I feel terrible for her, and she doesn’t want to say anything to provoke him because she’s worried he’ll slip into his old behavior.
I’d like to add that my sister and I have both agreed that we believe my father is absolutely capable of murdering us. I don’t know if I just watch too much true crime but he’s SO unstable and unpredictable that I could absolutely see this happening. A few months ago my sister was downstairs with my father, I’m coming downstairs and I hear him say to her “did you hear that” and she asks him what, he then says “the voices saying kill” like I said before, he feeds off of attention so I don’t know if he was actually hearing something or if he was just looking for a reaction. Either way that’s not okay to say to your child and I’ve been on guard around him since. Trying not to piss him off, walking on eggshells etc.
I don’t know what to do. I feel so awful for my family and I don’t want them to have to put up with this anymore

  2. Matt Riddle - 2 points

Daniel Garcia vs Mike Bailey
They also reveal that Orange Cassidy and Darby Allin both have qualified for the fatal four way ladder match at WWS Genesis and another qualifying match is scheduled for tonight. It’s Karrion Kross making his debut against Cody Deaner.
(10 Mins)
The proper show opens with THE QUEEN.
She makes a grand elaborate entrance to the ring to a mixed reaction. Some boo, some cheer and some simply don’t care. She makes her way to the ring as she awaits her opponent.
Her opponent is ATHENA!
Charlotte Flair vs Athena
(The two women circle each, Charlotte puts her fists up for a guard while Athena crawls at her licking her lips. Charlotte goes for a boot on a grounded Athena but she leaps to the side and hits a kick on the back of Charlotte’s leg. She quickly gains control with a combination of heavy attacks and has Charlotte in the corner. Athena walks up and hits a flurry of shots but Charlotte blocks most of them and she pushes her away with great force and lands a big boot to gain control back. As Athena gets back up Charlotte charges at her with a spear. Athena is reeling as Charlotte deadlifts her and lands a big back suplex. Athena rolls out of the ring with the impact. Charlotte scales the top rope and goes for her corkscrew moonsault to the outside but Athena dodges.
Charlotte, however still manages to land onto her feet, she reels back but Athena takes her head off with a jumping sidekick. Athena smiles a sadistic smile as she grabs Charlotte by the hair and smashes the back of her head onto the steel steps, again and again and again before she sends her back into the ring to meet the count at 9. Athena sadistically stalks her prey before locking in a crossface. Charlotte struggles for a bit but manages to get out. Athena still isn’t done as she gets Charlotte up and puts her down, smack on her knees. The modified lungblower!
She crawls over a pin but Charlotte kicks out. Athena grabs her arms and is about to stomp into Charlotte but Charlotte breaks free and lands a big punch square in the face. Flair gets up and headbutts Athena hard. Flair hits a front cartwheel lariat. Charlotte takes her leg looking for the figure eight but Athena grabs her neck and initiates a small package pin but Charlotte manages to break free but a spinning elbow knocks Charlotte out cold.
Athena climbs the top rope as she waits for Charlotte to get to her feet when Athena leaps and flips for the O-face but Charlotte catches her in mid air and drives a couple knees to her back. Athena is on her knees as Charlotte hits a Natural Selection Outta nowhere.
1,2,3. )
Charlotte Flair def. Athena
(21 mins)
We see the first proper advertisement for WWS Genesis which is scheduled for January 29 and it features the already established matches.

Orange Cassidy vs Darby Allin vs Karrion Kross/Jake Something vs TBD (Fatal Four Way Ladder Match for the Television Championship)
And a new match is also announced - Charlotte Flair vs Toni Storm (Semi Finals of the Women’s Title Tournament)
(4 minutes)
We come back from commercial for Maxwell Jacob Friedman
MJF walks out dashed in a suit with Moose by his tail and in his hands, a devil mask.
He takes to the microphone, Now all these marks on social media, are complaining how Max Jacob Friedman has no purpose being here and how he should aim for the top, he is made for gold. You really do worship the devil, don’t ya? You see for all the actions that I do, I do it with a purpose and I’m here for a reason. You see, no one is born the devil. Everyone is an angel until they’re bogged down and they need to become the devil to rise back up again. I was an angel and I was made the devil and I am here with vengeance, I am here with a hit-list. I have been on the receiving end of a lot of sins and now as the greatest sinner of them all, I am going to purify all of them, starting of course with Orange Cassidy.
You see Cassidy, you are everything that’s wrong with this industry. I treat this as an art form, you treat it like a joke. I’m gonna put you through hell and then we’ll see how much sloth is left in your style.
MJF drops the mic and leaves the devil’s mask alongside it and heads to the back with Moose.
(15 minutes)
Keith Lee makes his way to the ring for his hoss fight with
Sikoa comes out alone.
This is a big match with big stakes. Winner gets a place in the fatal four way ladder match at Genesis.
Keith Lee vs Solo Sikoa
(The crowd cheer at the amount of meat in the ring as the two behemoths walk towards each other. Solo hits a big chop on Keith Lee’s chest and he barely flinches, Lee hits a big slap on Solo’s chest and he takes it in like a champ. Solo hits another chop, this time Lee staggers back for a bit. Lee hits a big mongolian chop and Solo falls to the ground. He gets right back up and hits a hard headbutt to Lee and that knocks him down as he falls to the corner. Solo runs and hits a big hip attack followed by another. As he charges for a third one, Lee gets out of the corner and runs to hit a big shoulder tackle which turns Solo inside out. Keith Lee grabs him by the throat and hits a big chokeslam followed by a running senton. Solo gets up but Lee hits a running dropkick sending him flying through the middle rope to the outside.
Keith Lee runs the ropes as the crowd cheers and he hits the tope con hilo as the folks go crazy. Keith picks him up and looks to go for a spinebuster but Solo elbows him and hits Lee with a superkick followed quickly with a spear. He sends Lee back to the ring. Solo climbs the apron too but instead heads to the top rope as he hits a big samoan splash. Solo scrambles for the pin but Lee gets a two count. He gets Keith Lee up and irish whips him and hits a savate kick on the rebound. Solo taunts Lee to get up and he tries to lift him for the samoan drop but Lee is too heavy and he gets out of the predicament. He hits Solo with the rolling elbow. Lee climbs the middle rope and hits the big moonsault.
Lee goes for the pin but Solo kicks out. Solo gets up but Lee hits a Belly to belly suplex and Lee doesn’t even fall back to his back. Lee gets Solo up and hits the Big Bang Catastrophe, he goes for the pin but Solo kicks out at 2.99. Lee gets Solo up as he lifts him up for a spirit bomb but Solo gets off his shoulders and hits a hard headbutt. He grabs Lee’s neck and hits a big samoan spike but Lee doesn’t fall but Solo hits another samoan spike. Solo goes for the pin and he gets the W. )
(20 mins)
Solo Sikoa def. Keith Lee
And then there was darkness.....
The lights go out. Bray Wyatt’s mask forms on the titantron as in the background all the toys from the Firefly Funhouse are hung on nooses and Cult Leader Bray’s rocking chair on fire. Bray Wyatt walks out with the same old lantern but the new mask. He walks to the ring as there is dead silence in the arena.
He enters the ring and blows the lantern and removes his mask. He takes to the mic and he just stares down the lens and says two words. “I’m Sorry
He circles the ring grabbing his head and then he speaks again.
I am a sinner. I have committed eternal sin.I have done bad, bad things all in chase of glory. At first I was just a messenger but then over time, I sold my soul to the devil. My soul belonged to The All Father. He was my dark passenger but I have failed him time and time again and he left me at my lowest point. Alone, a shell of myself, a broken, deadbeat man but my devotion didn’t waiver. I am still his pagan and I’ll do anything to have him take me back. That brings me to Edge. Edge, Consider yourself lucky. The Dark Father must have truly seen something special in you for he offers you his protection, all you have to do is stop hiding. Darkness is often portrayed as the voice of evil, it’s not that, it’s a way of life. You need to accept the Darkness inside you Edge. Embrace it, Embrace him.
Wyatt drops the microphone and puts on his mask again but he doesn’t leave, however he takes a steel chair as he sits on the ringside as if someone told him who was coming next.
The clock ticks zero.
Karrion Kross and Scarlett have arrived
Kross and Scarlett make their entrance, almost not even acknowledging Wyatt’s presence. Kross gears up in the corner for his qualifying match against Cody Deaner.
Karrion Kross vs Cody Deaner
(The match starts when Deaner just charges at Kross but he sidesteps as Deaner crashes hard in the corner. Kross smashes the forearms to Deaner’s back and hits a big Saito Suplex. Deaner gets up but Kross catches up to him and hits another Saito Suplex. He boots Deaner in the face and deadlifts him with a powerbomb. Kross mounts Deaner and starts a ground and pound attack. Deaner throws Kross out and then starts to make a comeback but its stopped dead in its tracks with a belly to belly suplex. Deaner gets up as Kross runs at him from behind to hit the Kross Hammer as he falls face first on the middle rope facing Wyatt. Kross chokes Deaner out with his knee as he makes eye contact with Wyatt. He picks Deaner up and locks in the Kross Jacket and Deaner passes out pretty quickly.)
Karrion Kross def. Cody Deaner
After the match, Kross and Scarlett celebrate in the ring. Wyatt gets up, removes his mask and slides it in the ring. He blows a kiss to Scarlett and leaves.

Kazuchika Okada vs Shinsuke Nakamura
(From opposite corners, Okada and Nakamura stare holes into each other’s souls. Nakamura mouths, “No Punches?” from his end as Okada replies “No Punches”. The bell rings as the two faces of CHAOS walk towards each other. Nakamura takes one hand to his back and extends the other for a handshake. Okada hesitates but gives in but Naka withdraws his hand at the last moment to fix his hair. Okada looks pissed as he grabs Shinsuke Nakamura’s head and starts caving in forearm strikes. Naka quickly gains control with forearms and a knee to the gut which sends Okada back. Nakamura shrugs and hits a big knee lift to Okada’s chest. Nakamura grabs Okada from behind for a back suplex but Okada lands on his feet and knocks Nakamura out with a lariat. Nakamura gets to his knees but Okada grabs him in the front headlock and hits a big DDT. Nakamura sells the damage and gets right back up as Okada gets him up with a fireman’s carry and looks for the Death Valley Driver but Nakamura elbows him repeatedly to get out of it followed by a huge roundhouse kick. Okada falls to his knees as Nakamura hits a big knee strike right at Okada’s face. As Okada is down, Nakamura starts attacking his arm to soften the Rainmaker. Okada however, mounts a comeback and gets back up to his feet attacking Nakamura but a combination of elbows and knees fells Okada again.
Naka picks Okada up and goes for the back suplex but Okada rolls back to his feet. Picks up Nakamura and hits a big emerald flowsion but it only gets a two count. Okada picks up Naka again and irish whips Nakamura into the corner but Nakamura springboards up to the top rope and goes for a moonsault but Okada catches him and turns it into a tombstone piledriver. Okada goes to the top and hits a big elbow drop on Nakamura but that further aggravates his arm injury. Okada crawls to get a pin but only gets a one count and Nakamura kips right up too. Okada gets up as Nakamura unleashes a combination of strikes his way repeatedly kicking Okada’s injured arm. After one such kick, Okada no sells it and slaps Nakamura square in the face followed by a big dropkick. Okada picks him up and finally hits the death valley driver. Okada goes to the corner and looks for Nakamura to come up as he hits a Bomaye of his own. Okada follows this up and goes for the Rainmaker but Nakamura ducks and hits a german suplex as both men are down.
Both men get to their knees and have a forearm battle in the middle of the ring. Okada gets the better of this exchange with a wicked headbutt. Okada has the upper hand as he hits a gotch style piledriver on Nakamura, goes for the pin but Naka kicks out. Okada grabs his arms and gets him up, he looks for another rainmaker but in a last ditch effort, Nakamura grabs his arm leaps and turns it into a cross armbreaker. Okada struggles in the submission but doesnt tap out. Nakamura rises and wrenches the submission even harder but this lights a fire under Okada as he gets up and smashes Nakamura’s head in with forearm smashes and breaks free. Nakamura is on his knees as Okada walks to him and hits a few more forearm strikes and he gets him up and hits a hard looking german suplex dropping Nakamura on his neck. Okada doesn’t leave it as he turns the german suplex into a rainmaker with the other arm. He crawls for a pin and gets the win.)
Kazuchika Okada def. Shinsuke Nakamura
The crowd give both of them a standing ovation as medical personnel help carry both of them on the ramp. Okada offers a handshake and Nakamura takes this one as they get free from the medical personnel and help carry each other’s limping to the back.
CHAOS is forever.
