Beautiful city tucked in between Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Small town charm, excellent eateries, world class shopping.

2023.06.03 06:26 thr0waway-sooriginal My BF is angry at me any time I'm not giving him all my attention... is this normal?

This is a throwaway because my partner knows my real reddit, and I don't want them seeing this.... as I am falling to reddit right now because we are fighting. Also.... sorry it's so long.
For context: I am 27 F, and my partner is 33 M. We have been together for almost 7 years total, of which almost all of it was NOT long distance - 3ish years together and we actually got engaged (2018), but then we ended up breaking up in 2019. We were both mentally unwell and our relationship had gotten very toxic. I broke up with him. Fast forward, during peak covid we started chatting and hanging out again, and eventually got back together, though we aren't engaged again. Despite being broken up for about 10 months, during all of our relationship it was not LD, and we actually lived together for basically all of it.
Now, we are new to having a LDR. I moved away for work in April of this year. It has been just barely over 6 weeks since I have moved. I am pretty far away from him, in that it's not very easy or cheap to jump a plane and see each other whenever we want. However, I thought that we were doing good with out communication/staying in contact, but he has been fighting with me the past few days and saying otherwise. I have so many texts that I want to show someone because I am honestly unsure if this is very healthy the way he is speaking to me, but idk. I won't show them now, and just want to get some general advice: what do you guys expect to be a normal and fair amount of communication?
For us, we text all day every day. Without fail, that is something we are always doing. We keep each other updated, send photos from our day (food, selfies, etc.) and just make sure to check in and keep in touch. Aside from that, we talk on the phone just whenever it strikes throughout the week (I'd say in the 6 weeks I've been here, probably averaging on 2 times a week), we have played games online together maybe like 3 or 4 times and we have had sexy times I think 2 or 3 times. And for the last 2-3 weeks we have been watching at least one episode (if not two or three) of a show almost every night (save a night here or there when one of us has plans), while on the phone together at the same time.
I personally do not think that we aren't in enough contact with each other. I feel that we are having a good amount, if not even a lot, of contact and communication with each other. We never go a day without at least texting, and are often doing more than that anyway. And.... it has only been 6 weeks. However, he is angry with me and is saying that I am not giving him enough of my time, and that I am constantly putting him on the back burner or making him feel like a third wheel.
To just give more context - I just moved. 6 weeks ago. After living in my hometown and no where else, I have just moved to a new and very, very different area, with literally no one that I know. I was working remotely from summer 2022 until I moved this spring, so I have also been transitioning from working a fully at-home job (of which he was also WFH 60% of the time) to now being in a new city, needing to commute to and from work, and now working fully in office every day. It has been a HUGE adjustment for me, not only just the move (which is a big fucking thing) but also the transition to working fully in office is a big one. My days are automatically shorter, my energy is more spent. And the amount of time we used to spend together is not realistic now because before, that time was us both working from home.
So, aside from that, I am also in a new city and I am trying to make friends and get to know people, which obviously is going to take up some of my free time. Usually I only end up making plans on the weekends (and my bf and talk throughout the week too). However, he has expressed to me that he feels like I am not putting in enough effort for our relationship, and that I am essentially choosing other people over him. When I first moved, I accidentally double-booked myself a couple times, and it resulted in our plans either getting pushed back or moved to the next day. I totally understand that and take full responsibility for messing up my schedule that way. However, lately he has been getting upset if my plans run late and then cut into our potential time together. For example, this weekend we didn't make any actual plans for anything specific. We both had parties to go to on Saturday night, but that was it. On Friday I was not in a great mood (had a really long and emotionally exhausting week at work) and he was gaming with his brother online, so I had some me time. Saturday we had our respective parties, and then Sunday I had plans in the evening with some friends, but was free otherwise. We agreed to watch some of out show after my plans. My plans ran about 1.5 hours later than I thought they would (it was a pre-planned event, I had no control over the timing) and when I got home he really ripped into me and said that I was basically putting my friends above him because I was running late. Even though we still had time to watch 2 or 3 episodes before bed, he fought with me about basically tossing him aside and just texted me angrily about it until bed time.
I really didn't think I did anything wrong - we made our plans knowing that I already had previously ones. I kept him updated about the timing throughout the evening and let him know that I was running late. But when I got home he just totally slammed me with these texts about how I constantly push him aside and pick my "new life" over him all the time and that he feels like I don't care or love him or want him because of this. I'm just so at a loss for what to think and feel about this. Because I honestly really thought that we were doing well - like, we are in pretty near constant communication. But any time I have plans that aren't with him, suddenly I hate him and am ignoring him for my new life.... Like, it's only been 6 weeks and I feel like the way he's acting just isn't fair. But maybe I'm wrong. Any thoughts?
TLDR: My LDR boyfriends is upset when I have plans that don't involved him/if my other plans affect ours. We are in near constant communication with each other, and it has been 6 weeks since we went LDR.

2023.06.03 06:17 PrettyPisces83 How to deal with Ex who doesn't respect no contact

Almost a year ago I found out the guy I had been dating for over a year was cheating. The other girl contacted me and we met and talked it all out. We took a picture together of us flipping off the camera and sent it to him. The next day I changed more door locks (as he still had a key) and changed my key locker code.
Three weeks after that we had a bittersweet phone conversation where we aired everything out. We laughed and I felt like I understood him better. But as the conversation came towards the end I told him, "Unfortunately, we can't even end this relationship as friends. I don't trust you after what you did and although I wish good things for you I can't have you in my life. I will never call or text you again and I don't want you to ever contact me again." We hung up the phone and I started the healing process.
A month later he tried texting me acting like nothing happened and despite the urging of my best friend, I blocked his number without responding at all. My ex is a narcissist and after a bunch of reading and hindsight later, I realized that ANY response would be viewed as encouragement.
This past March (8 months later and just before my birthday) he requested to follow me on my private Instagram account and a few days later sent me private messages. I didn't respond and blocked him, hoping that would be the end of it.
But this past Monday, when I went to send a meme to my friend through FB messenger, I had a message request from my Ex. Again, I haven't responded but now I'm almost wondering if I should. I really wish he'd just leave me alone.
Going no contact was in my best interest and although our relationship was toxic, I learned a lot from it and don't regret it other than how it ended. Fortunately we don't live in the same city so I don't have to worry about running into him regularly.
I'm just curious what others would do. Part of me wants to break the no contact to tell him to leave me alone, but part of me wants to stand by what I said that I will never contact him again.

2023.06.03 06:11 Motor-Net-3903 Anxiety over a new love interest

Here I am after a few months trying to gather pieces of my broken heart. I met someone new who lives in another city, so for the first few weeks we texted almost everyday, which was constant, day and night, and full of excitement. He recently came to visit me, and we clicked almost immediately, could talk for hours, had the same love languages, got physical and basically couldn’t keep our hands off each other. It was so fun and I still find myself daydreaming about this person after he left. At the end of his trip, we agreed that we could try to see how things go in order to develop a relationship, keep talking, and see each other again when there is a chance.
The problem is, now it’s time for my anxiety to creep in. My last relationship with a DA has revealed a lot of aspects about my anxious attachment, and while I acknowledge it and this guy seems really secure, I still have a hard time self soothe with this person. I’m a firm believer that we should be with those who doesn’t trigger our anxiety, but it’s also OURS to deal with, especially when I personally find the texting back and forth with this new person kind of triggering and tiring. The chasing phase was fun and exciting since we didn’t know a lot about each other, but now as we had spent a few days together, I felt there is not much left to talk about on texts and it scares me thinking he would soon be exhausted keeping the uninteresting conversation going (he has been really communicative, even though he has slowed down the response speed/frequency for whatever reason). This really sucks and I can’t help to bring myself to compare the difference before and after we met. I know it has nothing to do with his level of interests, but personally I hate this part of my brain that keeps projecting the worst case scenario.
So, I’m on the edge of telling him that we should text less, probably only calling maybe once or twice a week until we meet again (which I’m scheduling to be a few weeks from now), since keeping the conversation going in a forceful way is not my ideal thing to do.
Anxious hearts, what would you do to cope with anxiety in this exact situation?

2023.06.03 06:11 DeathReaper130 Dallas Wings Game #5 Analysis

In this post as the title states, I'll be recapping and giving my analysis on what I noticed with the Dallas Wing's 4th game today which was against the Washington Mystics. Sorry about the post being a little late but I had to take a break from my computer after watching how that last minute of the game unfolded.

Part #1 - Offense:
Satou Sabally: Once again, she's the MVP of the team in today's game. She ended the game with a double double in 18 points and 14 rebounds. She was also close to a triple double as she had 7 assists in the game. Sabally was amazing on the offensive end today. Not only did she tie Arike for a team high 18 points but she also led the team with 7 assists. She was literally doing everyone on the floor today and had some crucial buckets to extend the Wings' lead at certain moments of the game. There's nothing really much more that I can say about her as I thought she had close to a perfect game. If she hit that corner three for the game winner, that would have been icing on the cake but it was a good try nevertheless. She'd be the person that I want shooting that final shot in a do or die situation like that anyways.

Arike Ogunbowale: As stated above, Arike tied Sabally for a team high 18 points. The biggest thing that I like about Arike this game however was her 6 assists. She seemed to take a bit more time on offensive possessions this game which was a good thing. There were moments where I thought Arike would have taken the shot considering that's what she'd normally do but she held back, analyzed the situation, and make the right decision whether it was to shoot the ball or pass it away. She got her teammates involved today and did a little bit less of her usual hero ball type of game. There were still moments where she tried to chuck shots up but at this point, I don't think that's ever going to change for the Wings and they just have to play around Arike like that. The one thing I wished Arike did however this game was to take less threes. For the most part of the game, the game was going back and forth with the Wings leading for most of the part only by a few. Despite this, Arike continued to chuck up threes at certain moments for no reason. Especially when your team has the lead by a few, the best thing to do is to slow the ball down and analyze where the best option to score was. In these situations however, Arike sometimes failed to do this and as a result gave over free possessions to the Mystics. Despite this, I think Arike played better overall compared to last game. She relied more on her team, made good decisions sometimes, and wasn't as eager this game to chuck up every shot opportunity she had.

Natasha Howard: I thought Howard did fine this game. She ended the game with 16 points and 13 rebounds which was a double double. She got some crucial buckets for the Wings which helped to keep them in the game. She definitely did have some trouble with Shakira Austin and Elena Delle Donne in the paint however so that was her biggest weakness. Howard ended up going 2-8 from inside the paint today (25%). Thus, she ended up mostly playing around the perimeter which wasn't that helpful as she went 2-8 from beyond the arc (25%). Overall, today was not Howard's best game but she still managed to contribute to the team offensively as much as she could.

Rest Of The Team: Crystal Dangerfield was ice cold from the field today, going 1-7 (14.29%) from the floor and scoring only 3 points. While much of the scoring on the Wings is expected from the Big 3 of Sabally, Howard, and Arike, the rest of the team still needs to step up their game offensively. No one else besides the Big 3 scored more than 6 points which wasn't a good sight to see. Kalani Brown also went 0-4 from the field but that's a whole different thing which I'll be getting into later on in the post. Dickey gave a decent spark from the bench with 6 points and went 3-3 from the floor (100%). Siegrist and Burton also hit a couple of shots as well. Overall, no one else on the Wings really stepped up scoring wise asides from making one or two baskets so that was not a good thing.

Part #2 - Reasons Why The Wings Lost
I had to put this part second since these were really important to note going forward.

Officiating: Normally, I don't complain about officiating but this is by far one of the worst officiated games which I've seen this season. I don't mind if the referees want to call fouls but my only thing its that if it's called on one end of the court, it has to be equally called on the other end of the court. A majority of the calls, in this game however, were in favor of the Mystics tonight and it was not even close. By the end of the game, the total number of fouls was 25 to the Wings and 17 to the Mystics. Now you might argue that it's only 8 fouls and it wouldn't have made a difference anyways. The Wings had a total of 16 free throws this game while the Mystics had a whopping 31 free throws. That's nearly double the number of free throws that the Mystics took when compared to the Wings. On defense, the Wings were getting some pretty terrible calls, especially for shooting fouls when the defenders hands were straight up in most instances. Furthermore, blocking fouls were called at a much higher rate in favor of the Mystics than the Wings, causing them to get into the bonus very early on. For reference, the Mystics as a team scored 46 points from just shots alone from the field. The other 29 points came from three throws. The Mystics ended up scoring more than a third of their team's total points from free throws alone. Now once again, I'm not saying that every call was in favor of the Mystics. While some calls were in fact fouls on the Wings' end, a majority were just empty fouls called against the Wings but not against the Mystics at the same rate. Furthermore for reference, both Sabally and Arike are top 10 in the league this season for free throw attempts er game, averaging about 5 free throw attempts per game. Both of them had 2 each in today's game and this game was probably the most aggressive game in the paint for both of them during this entire season so far. Ariel Atikins on the Mystics today took only one shot in the paint, which wasn't called for a foul, and ended up getting 7 free throws this game, three of which came from a fouled three pointer where she actually was fouled. The thing which sealed the deal for me was when one of the referees called a foul on Sabally with 0.2 seconds left in the game while the game was already pretty much over as the Mystics were up 75-74 with the ball in their control. After video review however, they dropped the foul call and just ended the game. But just the fact that they called a foul with 0.2 seconds left in the game which was already over and then went to the replay both to review the call and to then just drop it tells enough about it. Officiating definitely had a huge impact on how the game ended how it ended.

Kalani Brown: The thing that upset me the most in today's game for the Wings was Kalani Brown. She ended up going 0-4 from the field and that was the worst thing tonight. What made matters even worse was that about 3 of these shots were right under the basket with mismatch defenders on her. She's standing at 6'7 while 5'9 Brittney Sykes was guarding her on one play and 5'9 Natasha Cloud was guarding her on two other plays. She's almost a foot taller than both and couldn't put in a few easy tip in shots while standing right under the basket and with no Elena Delle Donne and Shakira Austin nearby.

Part #3 - Defense:
I won't split this part up into player by player as I normally do because this was the best defense so far that the Wings have played and it wasn't an individual effort, it was a team effort. Everyone playing very well on defense today. Sabally was holding her own against Shakira Austin. Natasha Howard was giving trouble to Elena Delle Donne. Kalani Brown did alright on defense but her presence was enough to have the Mystics double guess what kind of shots they take with her around. Burton did extremely well on defense in terms of applying constant perimeter pressure. Both her and Sabally ended with 3 steals each as well. This defense is exactly what I think the Wings can replicate day in and day out and they will be the scariest team in the league if they can. I'll share the defensive breakdowns of each zone so that everyone can truly understand how good the Wings' defense was today.

Dallas Wing's Defensive Shot Breakdown: I've mentioned this in a couple of posts but I've noticed a pattern in the WNBA which I call the 50-30-20 rule. Essentially, this means that 50% of all shots taken and points scored by a team are in the paint, 30% of all shots taken and points scored by a team are in the mid-range, and 20% of all shots taken and points scored by a team are from behind the arc. Therefore, I'll be listing how the Dallas Wings' defense affected from where the Mystics were forced to take their shots and score their points from just like in my previous game analysis.

Paint: 8 - 23 - 38.98% of all shots taken and 34.78% of all points scored (not with free throws)
Mid Range: 3 - 13 - 22.03% of all shots taken and 13.04% of all points scored (not with free throws)
Three Point: 8 - 23 - 38.98%% of all shots taken and 52.17% of all points scored (not with free throws)

By looking at this breakdown, we can see how great the Wings' defense actually did today. The very first thing which is noticeable is the paint defense. According to my 50-30-20 rule, keeping a team under 50% in terms of points scored and shots taken in the paint is a very good job for the defense. What makes this Wings defense today much more extraordinary is that they managed to keep the Mystics to under 40%. That is spectacular defense. In the WNBA, a team's defense almost never holds the opposing team to under 40% shooting from inside the paint. Yet, that's exactly what the Wings were able to do again. Honestly, that metric alone is enough to show how dominant the Wings' defense was today. I can't recall any other game where a team gets held to shooting under 40% of all shots taken from inside the paint and under 35% of all points scored from inside the paint and still win the game. The next evident thing in the breakdown is the three point range. The Wings forced the Mystics to take a much higher than average shots from beyond the arc. That's also another huge win for the defense. According to my 50-30-20 rule, the average WNBA team gets only 20% of its points and shots taken from beyond the arc. The Wings were able to force the Mystics to end up shooting almost 40% of their shots from beyond the arc and get a bit more than 50% of their points from beyond the arc. That's actually once again amazing defense. The Wings forced the Mystics to take lower quality shots from farther out and this ended up outweighing their paint and mid range scoring.

Final Recap: Overall, this game was disappointing for the Wings in terms of an officiating standpoint. A majority of the calls went against the Wings and not equally against the Mystics. This led to the Mystics shooting 31 free throws and this was the main reason the Mystic were able to come back in the first place. They were forced to take much less shots in the paint and much more shots from behind the arc. Furthermore from both areas, the Mystics shot just above 33%. Yet with the free throws, they were able to overcome their disasters on the offense and win the game. Now once again, I'm not saying that the officiating was the sole reason why the Wings lost. I am saying that it was a huge part why the Mystics were able to come back in the game. The Wings also had some plays and issues of their own which they did bad on. Kalani Brown not making a single basket under the rim against defenders who she was about a foot taller than was very poor. Another example is Jasmine Dickey fouling Ariel Atkins while she took a three pointer and the ball was already out of her hands when the score was 70-70 and the game had only 24 seconds left. Atkins' shot was already well off course but Dickey fouling her gave the Mystics a 3 point lead after Atkins hit all the free throws. Furthermore, Sabally wasn't able to hit a decently open three which would have probably won the game for the Wings. The Wings could have definitely won the game if some of those actions and mistakes were changed. Overall, I don't think the Wings as a whole should feel disappointed in themselves at all this game. They were big underdogs in a road game and almost won the game. Their defense was outstanding today and their offense was also pretty good overall. With today's loss, the Wings are now 3-2 in the season and they play the Connecticut Sun, who are a really good team, in 2 days. Should be interesting to see how that game goes and hopefully the Wings can win.

2023.06.03 06:06 SB_Adventure_Team Just venting about a little league Coach

A little backstory first. I’ve been coaching my son’s teams since tee ball. We have played certified Little Leagues, Rec, All Stars and Travel Ball over the years. There have been years where we have played 3 separate leagues (spring summer and fall). Last year we decided that we were not going to play his final little league season for this year, and we were originally going to put him in camps, clinics and 1:1 instruction since next year he will be going into high school ball. My son is a catcher and pretty damn good at it. He has always played well above the skill level of most of his teammates with the exception of the All Star and travel teams where the player set is more balanced. Well, the available camps and clinics that we were going to send him to are either booked up, or the travel time would get in the in the way of daily life. I was committed to not coaching unless it was just him and I working on his skill set. I had even let the leagues that we play in, and my players that I’ve had stick with me for years that I wouldn’t be returning to coach. Yeah it was a bit teary and I’m glad to hear that many of the kids have stuck together with their new teams, but it has been 10 years of nothing but baseball for us with limited time for our other hobbies. So with the clinics no longer being an option we decided to put him back in a summer league with the intention of baseball coming second, and this year we would focus more time on what we haven’t had much time for in the past years.
Well now we’re here in a summer ball league. There have only been 5 practices in the past two weeks, the head coach has only been at one, and his assistant coach is clearly in over his head as he has never coached a team before. Can’t really fault this assistant as you can tell he is trying. The head coach is quick to call the shots through game changer but is always “busy” and can’t make it to a practice. I wasn’t at the first two practices. My son was though, and he said they were kind of bad. (Remember how I said baseball was coming second) the 4th practice was a lane rental facility. Practice was supposed to start at 6 that day. We showed up at 5 to get some BP in plus I wanted to get some swings in my self. And while his team showed up, the head coach didn’t and the assistant was 30 minutes late. I know the GM to the facility and called him (he was off that day) and explained the situation. His staff said one lane was reserved for 90 minutes. The GM let us keep the lane and said if we needed it longer it was fine by him. So here I am with a team and no coaches. Fine whatever, these kids are here to play and learn. I’m not going to keep them for it. I’ll hold the practice. Assistant coach finally shows up.LF while my son was gearing up so we could work with the pitchers and rotate out for BP. This is when I found out the head coach had only been to one practice. This started to piss me off. 5th practice was scheduled for yesterday. We had some pretty gnarly weather rolling in and there was no communication about practice being canceled. Well I made the call for us not to go. And like clockwork the skies opened up right at the time practice would have started. Practice was rescheduled for today. Head Coach sent out a message letting everyone know. Also yapping about other stuff that team needs to do. Well guess who isn’t at practice. Head Coach. The assistant is. He asks if I can work with pitchers again. Ok I’m here. He wants to work on fielding drills. Again, I can’t fault this guy for trying. But this practice I really got see is understanding of how to operate a team and his understanding of the game. It was pretty cringe. I had to step in and take over as he is loosing control of the team half way through practice. Not really knowing these kids other than my own and the few I worked with on pitching I was able to quickly put some drills together for the last half. I could tell the last half where we were running an infield field drill that my son was getting frustrated because he knew where the play was supposed to go and these kids were just not paying attention. On the way home all we can do is laugh about this situation we’re in. We’re both pretty frustrated. There is another practice on Sunday. Why a Sunday? I have no idea. First game is Monday though, and half the team has no idea what they’re doing, and not to mention there is no way that this team is ready for a game. From what I’ve seen there are three solid pitchers, a catcher with a possible back up, and maybe a couple good infielders. Even if this was my team and with my experience I wouldn’t be able to set a line up or have any idea of positions for these kids. None of this are the kids at fault for. If this head coach was going to volunteer for a team you would think they would show up. It is kind of a big responsibility to lead a team. These parents have signed their kids to learn and play. While this is a summer ball league to fill the void between spring and fall, and for kids who aren’t on one of the two all star teams to continue playing through the break, this is actually a fairly competitive league. It isn’t a rec league that you can just fuck off with to be able to tell people yeah a coach a team. Many of the coaches that are in this league are coaches in the two main little leagues here also. We do this for the love of the game and we love teaching these kids. This isn’t the case with this team. I’ve never even heard of this coach prior to this season.
I’m stuck on a deciding what to do here. I’ll gladly step up and take over this team but unfortunately I even can’t be there for 100% of games due to work situations. That’s an easy phone call to the league organizer. Also there is that part of me that wants to stick to the baseball comes second mentality that we went into this season with and just let this team fall apart. But then I am conflicted with these kids deserve better than this and I am more than capable to provide them with a great program. Whether they turn into a winning team or not they will finish the season with better skills than when they started.
Maybe this is partly because I’ve been coaching for so long ,have run solid programs, and have dedicated a good portion of our lives to this game that I have forgotten that in the end this is all volunteer, and this is just how it is with some teams. Part of me wants to jump right back in. The other part says not my problem. Those of you who have coached in the past or are currently coaching probably understand this predicament the best. You guys know how much time and effort goes into this game. I’ll gladly be around to help this team when able, but with a head coach that doesn’t show up it makes me feel like why even bother. Why bother putting my own kid through a season of struggle.
Sorry for the long winded rant.

2023.06.03 06:06 Mentaltam East Coast USA to TYO - J/F - May 31st 2024

My partner is about to finish her residency and applying to fellowship, so we figured we'd try and get one last trip in before fellowship as this is the last time she'll be able to take off for 2-3 weeks at a time for a while.
I have opened up so many cards to accrue points literally just for this purpose (it did help that we had that wedding last year so I wasn't spending anything I wasn't going to).
So this is the situation, I have 300k MR and 227k MB right now and will have 100K UR by the end of July.
I'm trying to get to get at least J to and from East Coast of the US to TYO.
I looked at ORD, NYC, and IAD for ANA and they all have just 1J/1F open at 9PM EST.
I am willing to fly out of the west coast, I would just prefer east coast since if a flight gets delayed or canceled, there are at least more likely for me to make another flight rather than the west coast to get there. There's not that much wiggle room for the flying out date of 5/31/2024 but a good amount of wiggle room for the return date of mid to mid/late June .
What would be the safest strategy to approach this to get 2?
  1. I just book a J/F round trip ORD on ANA and just hope a when T-14 opens up on the same day?
  2. Try to just book the 2J/F on west coast on ANA? Unsure if this is viable since I only ran across this post for ANA award info a couple of days ago and haven't actually confirmed the 2 seat availability for myself (did not know you could set it to both Japan region and English at the same time). This just worries me a bit since if I transfer my points and I can't make this happen, I would've just lost all of it. Also, I have a question with this strategy, if 2 seats become available for NYC or ORD, how easy is it to change the ticket?
  3. Some other airline/award strategy that I'm unaware of. I considered JAL, but considering I have very little AA points left and none in Alaska Airlines, I didn't think this was the way to go.
Any advice or guidance is appreciated! If I left out anything necessary to facilitate effective evaluation of my situation, I do apologize.

2023.06.03 06:06 Even_Surprise9850 Am I (25F) wrong for being upset with my boyfriend (30M)..?¬

Created this alt account just to post this.. It's gonna be very long and with many grammar mistakes.. I have been in a long distance relationship with my boyfriend for more than 2 years now. It's been hard but we usually make it work and would spend a lot of time almost every evening playing video games and watching shows. I have always felt a bit more needy in the relationship.. Like I will miss him more, will be the one initiating calls more, text first most often, be the one pushing for the next meeting. Usually we meet every 2-3 months for a week, sometimes just for a weekend, usually in my country, because his family is here and I have my own flat. Meanwhile the whole relationship he was renting a room from his friends and was very against us meeting there, which was always upsetting for me because that meant that we could meet a lot less often. He has a lot of money and could have easily afforded to move out sooner, but honestly.. he was just lazy and didn't want to and would spend most of his free time playing video games.. he would talk how hard finding a place is and how hard it is to move all your things.. he would complain all the time how he didn't like living at that place, but wouldn't do anything about it.. at one point we almost broke up because I told him that I can't handle him living there and barely seeing him anymore, I told him I don't even think he will ever move out at this point..

But now he has finally moved to his new place and has been moving his stuff, unpacking, etc. for the last few weeks and finally finished everything today (friday).. Obviously this whole time he was quite busy with his job and moving so we weren't spending any time in the evenings, maybe at most watch one episode of some show together and go to sleep immediately after. He wasn't really texting first or calling these weeks too and I was understanding of course that he was busy and tried to not bother him too much, but I really missed him these past couple of weeks, but can't say I felt the same from him.. He did actually have a lot of free time, but besides the whole moving in, he started working out a loooot every day and also just going out in the city, going on walks, runs etc. I was actually happy and proud that he was being active, going outside and not just playing video games all day (he is actually addicted to it and that's a whole other story..), but still feeling quite lonely and hoping he will have some time to spend with me once he's finished moving in.

And I'm about to graduate university and have been quite busy myself these past months and actually finished my thesis recently and absolutely nailed my thesis defense (is that what's it's called in english?) this friday! Which I consider quite a big milestone for me because these past 6 years in medical school were really challening... And I was really hoping to spend some time today with my boyfriend, celebrate a bit, you know? But honestly I have been feeling like he's not even that interested in my life, like he barely asks any questions about what's going on in my life.. He was actually the only close person of mine that didn't know about this whole thesis defense.. I would mention I have a big thing coming up this friday and he wouldn't ask anything about it, didn't wish me luck, didn't ask me how it went last night, etc.. Anyway, I called him during the day on friday, asked about his plans for the day, he told me he's actually about to finish moving in and talked about some exciting new show he wants to watch with me and got me all hyped up like we are going to watch it today.. I told him I'm gonna be free today and just be resting after my thesis defense and once he's free and want to do something together to let me know..

Well I haven't heard from him the rest of the day and at about 11 in the evening I got a text from him that an aquantaince is coming over and they are going to go to the city, which is really unusual for him.. I call and ask him what's going on. He told me he's been texting with this aquantaince all day and he (the friend) just got back from a fishing trip and is very tired, but is still coming over?? I asked if they're going to go to a bar or club and he said something about not being in a party mood and they are probably going to just walk/sit in some park/forest.. at 11 in the evening? I actually got a bit upset and cried.. I told him how he didn't find any time for me these past couple weeks and didn't even text or call me, but found time to do this and text his friend all day and I said I was waiting for him to watch that show and I missed him so much.. but we quickly talked it out and I wished him a fun time. At first I didn't question this whole thing, but then I started thinking this whole meeting with the friend in the middle of the night didn't make any sense.. and frankly can't imagine him just meeting a friend for a stroll in a park.. I didn't even sleep today because I felt like he was lying to me.. My gut was screaming that he's probably just going to a club and going to be doing drugs and drinking alcohol till the morning... but he actually didn't seem active on any social media during the whole night so I started thinking maybe he actually just met his friend briefly and went to sleep, but then he reacted to some meems I sent earlier at like 5 in the morning.. and that meant he was out this whole time.. I immediately asked what's he up to, but he just left me on read.. which happens often when he's really drunk..

I'm just feeling sick.. He actually (in my opinion) has a big drinking problem.. not that he drinks every day, but that once he starts drinking he can't stop.. and he becomes a very mean selfish asshole when he's drunk and just completely can't control his behavior or the things he says.. and he usually doesn't even remember the awful things he says and does to me when he gets like that.. He hurt me a looooot about half a year ago when he was high and drunk and we almost broke up then, at first I forgave him but after some months I realised that I couldn't be with a 30 yo man that can't control his drinking and I don't want to see him do drugs or drink in front of me ever again.. I was actually preparing myself to break up with him till he completely out of nowhere told me that he realised that nothing good comes out of drinking and he wants to at the very least to completely stop drinking beer.. And I gave him a chance and looked at it almost like a new beggining.. And he did really good for like half a year and our relationship got a lot better and healthier, but a few months ago someone got him some beer for his birthday and he kind of started slowly drinking again - occasionally going to bars..

And I'm just over it.. I don't want him to start doing drugs and drinking again.. I'm terrified of him when he's drunk (not physically, but emotionally..) and maybe that's just me, but it's a huge turn of that a man in his 30s is still spending all night in some club together with his buddy.. and a lot of his buddies are quite scummy people that cheat on their girlfriends.. and while I completely trust him sober, I don't trust him to control himself from doing something while he's super drunk.. Honestly all my family and my friends that have met him and seen how he acts while drunk hate him and want me to break up with him and I was really hyping up the fact that he stopped drinking and hoping to repair his reputation with them.. And I really love him, as stupid as that sounds, and was really hoping he could change and stop drinking.. when he's sober and we spend time together it's so so good.. I know I wrote a lot of negative things but there are lots of very good things too, but it would be too long to write everything.. I was supposed to move to him this summer after graduating and now I'm just so scared and nervous about that and don't know if I should.. I know I have to ask what happened last night, but it will end up with him being upset and angry and starting a fight and gaslighting me.. I have my final exam next week and hate that it all happened now when I really need to focus on studying.. What do I even do in this situation?

2023.06.03 06:04 CleanHandTowel I feel like theirs no love from either side. Not sure where to turn or what to do

I 29M and my wife 25F have been married for only 3 years and I feel like there’s nothing between us anymore already. We met at the beach when she was vacationing in my country. She came 4 summers in a row and we stayed together 3 of them. On the last trip, I asked her to marry me and stay here forever and she said yes. (She never pressured me or brought this up, it was my idea and a total surprise) We both didn’t have much and were younger and really started to build something together here as a team. Since our careers have taken off and we are well off financially, things have changed. We always used to split everything 50/50 from bills to dates to gift amounts. It all started with gifts actually. One Christmas, she asked me for expensive lavish gifts. I thought we were on the same page. I got her everything she asked for and she got me a cheap headset for my game and it was the same one I already have. I wouldn’t be so worried about cost if the price difference wasn’t so massive. It’s also because I feel like she didn’t put any thought into it at all. This continued for the next birthday and Christmas also, same situation. I’ve learned my lesson for the next upcoming birthdays and Christmas. Sometime last year, she was crying and told me she’s been really depressed because she doesn’t feel like a princess. She said she is tired of splitting everything and a man should take care of his woman and a woman should not have to spend her money. I flat out asked her, “so you want your money to be your money and my money to be your money?” And she said, “yes”. I was beside myself and it turned into a long conversation about how I want to live, build, and grow together and that way of living is not realistic. Her response was that, “that is how people in my country live”. For context, she makes $15,000 a year more than me, but it puts her in a higher tax bracket so our take home is pretty equal, but hers is slightly more. We don’t share finances at all as she’s completely against it. I have no idea how much money she has and she has no idea how much money I have. All bills are in my name and she just pays me half each month. I feel that I’m pretty chill and never complain about anything. She always seems to have an issue with me every day and I almost hate being home for fear that I did something wrong. She said she doesn’t want to help clean anymore because it’s dirty and woman shouldn’t have to do it. I said, “if you don’t want to pay for anything and don’t want to help clean, then what are you doing for us?” And she said “you have me and nobody else does” and “I cook for you all the time”. This is true, she cooks all the time. But, she only cooks what she likes and will just make me a plate of the extras while she’s at it. I don’t really like the food that she makes and she says, “if you don’t like it, then just make your own food”. I sometimes wish she would think “my husband likes this so I will make it for him” but it is only what she likes. She will not split grocery bills unless we only buy ingredients for the food she likes. We’re about to move and she wants to get rid of all my stuff and wants me to buy all new stuff so our new place will have “atmosphere” instead of just being full of hand-me-down stuff. I’m sort of ok with that because we could use some new stuff. We commute to work together as we work in the same city (where we’re moving) but when we get home, we go our separate ways and hardly talk. She constantly speaks over me when we’re in company and always corrects me and makes me feel so small. If I’m telling a story about how someone won $4000, she’ll say, “actually it was $3,900 you’re always exaggerating” even my family pulled me aside and asked why she doesn’t ever let me just talk and relax. I feel like she is taking all my masculinity and I feel so small. We haven’t had sex in 6 months and we’ve had sex 2 times in the past year. I feel like she is always nagging me and when I try to talk to her about these feelings I’ve mentioned here that I don’t feel loved or cared about, she says I’m killing her good day. I suggested marriage counseling and she said she will only do it if I pay for it, which makes me feel like she doesn’t care at all. When I think about things ending, I’m really only afraid that she will take my dog at this point. What do I do? I want things to be better but I’m so lost. I’m rambling now so…
No love felt. Wife doesn’t want to pay for anything anymore, no sex life, I feel like she wants to sap me of money while she builds wealth. I feel like she doesn’t respect or care about me or my feelings. I feel small, no masculinity. My family has taken notice. Embarrassed. Wife doesn’t want help unless I set it up and pay for it. I just want to be happy and I feel like she just wants a tool put on this earth to make her happy.

2023.06.03 06:02 Samuelbr15 I don't know what to do with my life

last year was the best year of my life. I started dating, made friends and treated my psychological problems
this year I moved to another city, I lost my friends and I only keep in touch with my girlfriend from a distance. my social life turned to crap again and autism didn't help matters. I couldn't adapt right and it's been horrible
Also, my parents are having financial problems this year, so I'm off antidepressants and anxiety medication.
and several things happened, mainly involving my girlfriend. she recently went through puberty so she's pretty annoying but i still love her.
also, she has a friend (female) who always treats me badly and even so she always takes her friend's side even though everyone takes my side since this friend is pretty toxic. She also hits on my girlfriend and my girlfriend thinks it's just a joke. I honestly don't know if it's a joke or not, but I'm still uncomfortable with this friend asking to kiss my girlfriend
she clearly has autism, depression and anxiety but doesn't want to treat it, she's not even in high school but she already wants to study for college. I have no problem with her studying and I even support her, I also study for the entrance exam, but she harms her health by studying, for example, she sleeps less than 6 hours a day
She already confessed that she doesn't trust me as much as she used to, and honestly I think I'm the only person who can help her at least a little bit these days, since her parents are very troubled. it hurt me, and I think it's because of the autism that she didn't realize how heavy it was to say she didn't trust her boyfriend
she now came with a talk of wanting to try hallucinogenic mushrooms someday, just once to try. I'm addicted to pornography and I know how bad an addiction can be in a person's life, so I repudiated it in every way and she just doesn't listen to me. I want my best friend back, how do I help her realize she's wrong and go back to how she always was? it was a sudden change, from a month to now she's been like this
i love her with all my might, what did i do wrong to make her like this and how do i fix it? I am also the only help she has. I want to cry
Sorry the post is not exactly ABOUT autism, but as I said I have no friends and I don't know who to ask for help. this subreddit has already helped me with social issues and since I am autistic and she probably is, I thought this would be the best place
Sorry for the gramatical issues and thanks for reading my post this far

2023.06.03 06:02 Tom_Grossi Just Wanted to Say

I've posted in this sub before. I've expressed how much I appreciate you all for the years of support.
Today, I visited Detroit for the first time in 15 years since I went to Ford Field to see Wrestlemania 23.
Your city is incredible. The people were truly some of the best I've ever met.
I've been a Packers Fan since I was 6. I've always had a soft spot for the Lions. After today, I truly wish the absolute best for your city.
The sheer generosity and inexplicable gratitude that everyone showed left me floored. The "Thank you's for coming to my city" as if they were surprised I was even there honestly had me confused. Because this city was amazing.
As I was leaving a fan event, someone was running down the street to try and get a picture. She was a local and we chatted for a bit.
At the end of our conversation she summed up Detroit by saying "if you fuck with us, we fuck with you".
After today, I fuck with Detroit.
Thank you for an amazing day. You're going to crush the draft and before the world sees how wrong they were about Detroit, I will do everything in my power to show them how freaking awesome your city is.
Thank you

2023.06.03 06:02 Duke_Newcombe Did I take my life in my hands? A tourist walks down a side street near La Rambla

I visited the fair city last May (BTW, immediately I know (a) I love your city already, and (b) I'd love to visit again soon). I took a walk down La Rambla, and decided to do some off-the-street looking around. Late May around 1700-1800 in the evening. Sun still up, but definitely evening.
I walked down Carrer de Sant Pau, up Carrer del l'Arc de Sant Agusti (by Sant Agusti church, where they were having some kind of cool Rose Festival), then back onto La Rambla via Carrer dell'Hospital.
Kind of got the whole Ralph from the Simpsons "I'm in danger" vibe about half way through my walk. Lots of eyes on me (for reference, kinda bigger but short black dude, middle-aged, obviously American, but dressed and chilling out, trying not to look or act it). I kept alert, looking at surroundings (and the interesting buildings), while keeping an eye out.
Aside from some indicators of "female companionship" for sale, and dudes that may have wanted to talk to me, nothing "bad" happened to me. But was this a dumb idea to do--taking a walk at that time of day, where I walked, and being who I was? Or am I just being paranoid?

2023.06.03 05:48 Smol_Gae Any tips for my Fire + Faith build

I'm not trying to min/max by any means, but I do want some tips.
I have 3 talisman slots right now, haven't defeated Rykard. I'm level 114 with:
(Starting class Samurai)
38 Vigor 26 Mind 13 Endurance (base) 17 Strength 30 Dexterity 13 Intelligence 49 Faith 8 Arcane (base)
(I have like 8 rebirth tears, so if these stats need some heavy tuning I'm fine with that.)
I have Godslayers Greatsword +9, Ornamental Straight Swords +9, and Godslayers Seal +14 (I'm gonna farm for some SS5's for Godslayers Seal soon, I just wanted to sort other stuff out first)
Cerulean Amber Medallion +2 Dragoncrest Shield Talisman +1 Starscourge Heirloom
Ruler's Mask Noble's Traveling Garb Errant Sorcerer Manchettes Snow Witch Skirt
(The armour and talismans are completely up for changing, but I'd rather keep my weapons unless you recommend a better seal. The weapons are really fun to use to me and I'd rather not change them, especially since I took a couple days to farm and upgrade them.)
Golden Vow, Blessing's Boon, Lightning Spear, Wrath of Gold, Frozen Lightning Spear, Scouring Black Flame, Catch Flame, and Black Flame - All of my equipped incants.

2023.06.03 05:42 Dragon_Hype Infiltrations Impossible in Modded MW5?

Hello all, bit of a first time with this thing, but lately I've been running into a problem.
I've been enjoying the mod scene of MW5 quite a lot lately and finding it a far more enjoyable experience than my base-game/mostly vanilla run of MW5. However, I've run into a snag as per the title, and need a bit of help in figuring out what I am doing wrong or if it is something else.
Trying to do infiltration missions seems impossible to do correctly. Enemies seem to notice me from FAR away unlike how it was before with my original mostly vanilla run of the game. Where once I was able to use a light or medium mech to great effect in gathering resources and intel, now anything I ride will be seemingly hardcore on yellow and red constantly despite keeping out of LOS and far distance from targets. Eventually, it just goes up in a wad of gunfire everywhere because for some reason the enemy decided to start firing and following me, and the moment I retaliate, then the alarm countdown begins. Enemies either try to escape, run to alert others, or, as usual mostly, go at me directly.
I am not sure if one of my mods is the cause such as the mod TTRulez AI mod or something else entirely. The amount I mods I have going currently are 59 of them but it's hard to say if any beyond the AI one are the cause. Part of me imagines that perhaps just disabling the AI one temporarily will help and just keep doing guesswork from there or something else entirely.
I'm open to other people's experiences, especially toward how they best tackled this issue since Infiltration is quite fun to me (save for the seeming difficulty of getting all loot without alerting or going guns blazing for a bit), and want to find a solution soon.
Thank you all so much and have a wonderful day!

2023.06.03 05:39 FernwehForLife Attending a wedding in Paris - what should we do in the downtime? (off the beaten path)

My husband and I have never had Paris high on our list of places to visit. We're not necessarily opposed to going - we love travel (!!!) and we feel like this gives us the perfect excuse to go to this city.
However, we're not sure what to do when we're there.
Both of us love museums but perhaps not the more "traditional" type. Granted, we feel like we HAVE to go to the Louvre, but we certainly won't spend all day there, and neither of us feel inclined to see the Mona Lisa. We don't love pastries and aren't fans of macaroons. Although, we both know we have to eat at least one to say we've tried it in France! My husband isnt a huge fan of seafood, and foie gras is a no-go for both of us.
So what do we do? What should we see? Where do we eat? Is there a cool tour to take in town that will allow us to see a few sights but not spend all day at each?
Also, the wedding couple is trying to play this more traditional with their largely not-well-traveled American guests, and they're hosting both the night-before dinner and wedding night heavy-cocktail reception at 9pm. Even though my husband and I travel frequently, we're getting in the day before the wedding and will still be on a different timetable food-wise, so are there any places you'd recommend to get a very light meal around 5pm?
We'll be staying in the Latin Quarter, but we know public transport is solid, so we're willing to move about if recs are not in the immediate area.
Thank you!

2023.06.03 05:36 Conclusion_Feeling Phentermine journey

I've struggled with my weight for my entire life. and to be honest, my whole family has as well in their own ways.
When I moved out after high school my weight took a ROLLER COASTER for years id get down to 135 and then up to 180 then down to 150 back up to 220 and at that point, in my life, I didn't even notice the amount I had gained because I told myself I was happy and still able to do what I wanted. but I had isolated myself and just enjoyed eating. it took returning to my hometown and being called out in McDonald's by an old coworker for me to see that I needed to make a change. I didn't even know I had gained weight because I've worn loose baggy clothing.
I still didn't really try to lose the weight but did start paying attention and wound up throwing myself into work so much that iIwas there 14+ hours a day and wound up unintentionally losing weight again that you guessed it I would gain all over again.
A few years back I got married and had kids and made a wonderful friend in a new state who was really into healthy living and she helped me see my habits. I've learned how to meal prep low-cal meals and work out regularly. but I've still been struggling even with the effort. I tried beach body, noom, Alli, slim vance, Beyond-Body, weight watchers. Pretty much you name it and I've given it a chance (so many supplements and protein brands and flavors ) many times in combination with each other without breaking the rules of each program. I've been stuck in a plateau for 3 years now between 168-182.. right now I'm right in the middle at 176 but I'm just so uncomfortable and want to do better so I talked to my PCD who wants to start me on Phentermine next week to see if it can "kick start" my weight loss again. Just this time I'm 3000 miles from my friends and family and want to share this new journey with someone.
I've been sitting here reading some others' stories about how they had started taking it or if they had in the past. so I'm hoping that I can keep up with my experience to share with others as well who may think about taking it or who may be prescribed it
Also, any tips and tricks are greatly appreciated. so far what I've seen is take it early and have A LOT of water ready.
Current H: 5' 3" W:178 27y/o F
ive never used Reddit before so pardon my confusion if im using it the wrong way. im also new to sharing things with complete strangers so there's that too (also, in general, my grammar kind of isn't great and I am using a broken keyboard )

2023.06.03 05:35 LTStormchasen 50 [M4F] #Houston, TX - Dominant Daddy seeking submissive for Age Gap Relationship

I seek a serious relationship with an open-minded naturally submissive female who still believes in the traditional family household values and roles (where we're equals, but the man is the primary leader, protector, and provider of the household.)
I’d love to find someone who maybe even wants to travel with me as my co-pilot in my truck as we travel across the country exploring. Also, I’m looking for someone who is okay with an age gap relationship.
About me: I travel America in my big rig 18 wheeler truck chasing sunsets and my dreams. I’m also owner of a small but successful crypto investment company. (I love to talk about Bitcoin) Former Army Officer and combat veteran. Aspiring songwriter and horrible guitar player.
I’m God fearing and marriage-minded. I love the outdoors, and my hobbies include walking, hiking, bicycle, running, camping, picnics, and eating out at restaurants or enjoying a nice romantic dinner at home.
I love to travel and explore new places! Sci-fi, Marvel and Anime fan. ENTJ. Sagittarius. Friends say I’m an intelligent lifelong learner and that I give more than I take.
I am always a gentleman in public. I am an active listener, reserved, and I have a relaxed personality. I work hard, love to be active, and do not get upset or angry. Don't mistake my kindness for weakness. I am an aggressive, assertive man when I must be.
I am a provider for those I love. I'm very supportive of family and friends. Above all, I honor and support my woman to become a better version of herself.
I like to get outside and do fun things and not sit home all the time. I’m a bit of a foodie who enjoys eating out, going to movies, working out, and reading to improve myself. Part country boy, part city, part nerd, sometimes witty, dominant without being domineering or abusive, sometimes shy.
I’m reserved and laid back without being too boring. I try to stay active/Fit and eat healthy with the occasional cheat day. No beer belly allowed, but secretly working on my dad coffee bod.
I do have a kinky side. (I’m a BDSM Master with a dash of DaddyDom.) One minute we're joking around...and the next, I'm pinning you on the sofa (or against the wall) and getting spicy taking what I want. (You belong to me. Every part of you.) My main love languages are physical touch and affection. I’m okay with online at first, but I want an in person relationship. I love to give praise and positive words of affirmation.
Is this you? You seek LOVE FIRST AND FOREMOST, security, protection, guidance, structure, safety, nurturing, someone to hold your hand, being babied at times, other times being treated as a princess or queen.
You desire hugs and passionate tender kisses, while also occasionally desiring to be chocked or spanked. (It’s complicated.) You’re not into pain, but know there is no love without pain.
Age is a number to you. You have the maturity that comes from facing what life throws at you for a few years, and now discovering that you can deal with it. (Together we can make it from rock bottom to your dreams.)
You love to serve and take care of your man. It’s not so much a kink more than it is just who you are. You are very adaptable to meet my needs, as I meet yours. You believe in completing small acts of service for your man. You believe that giving yourself fully to your partner is the ultimate power exchange and show of devotion and trust.
US: I crave a 1950 American style relationship dynamic with traditional gender roles. I'd love for you to share your day with me; be able to trust me enough to be yourself around me; finally let your guard down, confide in me, submit to me because you trust me to protect you, take care of you, teach--guide--mentor you using my life experience and resources to help you become a better version of yourself.
I promise to provide a safe place for you to relax and explore...just walk in my door and give up control. Let go the worries of your day. You don't have to be in charge here. I've got you now. Let's create a life where you can be free from worrying about everyday problems and stressors, and just get pleasure from having a safe space to explore your feminine energy and desires.
It'll be just you and me against the world.
If you're craving this type relationship dynamic (or want to hitch a ride to enjoy the countryside,) feel free to send me a message with a recent pic and let's chat about your needs, wants, limits, and see if there is chemistry and a connection.

2023.06.03 05:34 Chance-Influence-360 constipation

hi! my cat got half his teeth out 2 weeks ago, then had a bunch of seizures (because he was hypoglycemic from his diabetes) earlier this week and is recovering now from that but he has only pooped once in the last 14 days. I am worried his stomach is sore. are there any home remedies that people know of? I tried pumpkin puree but it doesn't seem to be working so far. i am scared to give him anything ever since the seizures so it has to be super safe.
thanks! ◡̈

[First] [Previous] [Next]
Memory transcript subject: Sasha Everett, ex-UN noncombatant
Date [Standardized Human Time]: February 29th, 2177
Location: Upper layer of City 23, Venlil Prime
“I’m going, I’m going! Gojids aren’t— khh-aah! — exactly limber in their older years, Sasha! Right, I don’t see anyone in this hallway either, you can come in.”
Sasha clambered through the window after her talkative gray-quilled friend, slipping through with significantly less effort despite her larger frame. The Rising Star was laughably unsecure; windows were unlocked and at chest height, with no alarm system to speak of. The hotel was in some sort of lockdown due to the exterminator presence, all residents and staff hiding behind locked doors. It would be an issue if their target was stowed in a room, but at least the halls were empty. All that left for security was the exterminators gathered at the entrance, and—

“Get back!”
An extended claw stopped her from tripping straight into an intersection, as Burai forced her back into the hallway. “There’s cameras here, they’ll spot you!”
“Haven’t they already seen you? You’re standing right in their view.”
“No, they… I mean, yes, but nobody’ll care about a Gojid in the halls. To a surveillance AI scanning a spaceport hotel, that’s business as usual. But as soon as a human steps out here, security will be notified about a ‘potential predation incident’. Just stay there, and let me… let… w-what?”
“Burai? What’s going on?”
Burai was staring down the hall, eyes rapidly flitting to focus on something which she couldn’t see from her view in the adjacent hall. His jaw was entirely slack for several seconds before he managed to collect himself.
“The, uh… cameras. The cameras are shut down. All of them, they’re staring at the ground and their lights are out. I think you can come out now.”
They had little time to spare, and hesitation would only hurt their chances. She paced out into the corridor alongside Burai, casting a glance down both ways. It was as he’d said; every camera was unlit and staring loosely at the floor. Likely Trish’s doing. No way to tell if (or when) they’d reactivate, so they had to get moving. Burai apparently thought the same, though his relatively stubby legs meant his sprint was about level with her stride.
As they moved through the hall at slightly less than record pace, Sasha began taking in her surroundings. It could be useful to memorize if they had to leave the way they came, so she absorbed every detail she could as they ran like hell/jogged with mild exertion. Orange walls, painted in a stepped gradient from burnt orange to a light cream. A fascinating choice for a world where the native species had orange-colored blood, but apparently they couldn’t be bothered to pretend that prey should be scared of anything bearing the color of their blood anymore. She had to admit, it was a welcome change.
Lining the walls were an assortment of mounted displays. Arranged in a pattern which looked random but was carefully considered for visual balance, they showed an assortment of artwork from every species. She even thought she recognized a few human paintings, mixed alongside the rest of the dizzying collage.
Maybe she had, but it was hard to say for sure. She didn’t have time to get a good look before every panel suddenly went dark at once, with nothing in the way of warning or fanfare. For a brief instant, the hall was filled with rows of ominous black rectangles, before two white lines of text appeared on each and every one:


The panels switched back to their previous display of artwork almost too quickly to read the message. Sasha was left briefly wondering if she was simply hallucinating from the stress, but Burai’s once-again slack jaw dispelled that notion. He looked up at her, trying to say something but failing for lack of breath.
They were on floor zero. The elevators were disabled due to the lockdown, and the stairs were arranged in such a way that one needed to cross around half the building to get to the next one up (whoever was in charge of planning apparently didn’t consider fire a real issue). If they were to make it upstairs before the exterminators caught up with them, they couldn’t be constrained by Burai’s sluggish pace.
In one beautiful fluid motion, she tore off her jacket, wrapped it around Burai, and picked him up. The thick flame-resistant plastic fiber made for an excellent barrier against his spikes, shielding her from a moderately painful and very embarrassing impalement. Burai squeaked in shock, but didn’t protest; they both knew that he couldn’t keep up with an endurance hunter’s jog. Without even the bare imitation of caution, she tore off towards the stairs with Burai in tow. They couldn’t afford to lose time playing at caution when their target was three floors above them through a bizarrely labyrinthian series of stairs.

They’d hardly made it halfway through the second floor when their progress was rather rudely interrupted. A small contingent of exterminators milled about the entrance to the stairwell, too engrossed in conversation to notice the couple of interlopers rapidly skid to a stop and duck behind an archway.
In the reflection of an unpowered screen near the door, Sasha and Burai watched the exterminators from a ‘safe’ distance. The majority of them broke away to rush down another corridor, leaving only two at the stairs: a Venlil and Harchen, judging by their frames. Snippets of their conversation drifted down the empty hall, intermittently cut out by the screeching sound of a broken automatic door repeatedly trying and failing to close.
“—on the first floor, either. You sure they—”
“—way. It has to be here somewhere. ‘Course, Yawi—”
“—d never! You know, that human can’t tell the di—”
On the next screech, Burai made his move. With the noise of the door covering the sound of his approach, he managed to get within meters of the exterminators undetected. At the last second before they noticed his presence, he moved around to make it look like he’d come from another hallway. Then, he drew a breath.
“H-Help! Help me!”
The two wheeled around, flamethrowers already primed before they spotted their assailant. Gojid were generally less than respected owing to their nature as cured predators, but an old man screaming for help didn’t exactly spark fear. Their weapons lowered, and the Venlil flicked a tail in friendly greeting. The Harchen seemed less amused.
“What are you doing outside of your room, Gojid? The hotel’s on lockdown. We’ve gotten notice of a bio—”
“No, no, please don’t make me g-go back there! There’s a… a h-h…”
“A human in your room? Mind telling us what you were doing staying with one?”
“I heard… I heard crying on the outside of the door, so I let him in… I didn’t realize it was…”
The Venlil put a gentle paw over the shaking Gojid. “I understand. Don’t worry, its deception dies with us. You’re safe. Can you tell us what room it’s in now?”
“F-four.. nineteen.”
“I see. Kyura, go check out room 419. I’ll stay here and—”
“Wait! It’s got a… a…”
Burai didn’t finish, choosing to let himself devolve into another bout of feigned fear. In the absence of details, the two would imagine the human to be armed with whatever scared them most. His bet paid off; the Venlil rose to her feet and rushed after the Harchen with her weapon aimed slightly upward at what would be a human’s center mass.
He let his act continue for a few more seconds, apparently waiting until he was certain they wouldn’t double back before scrambling for the stairs. By the time he made his way up to the third floor, she was already beside him and panting slightly.
“What… was that?”
“Improv. You should try it sometime! Anyway, I don’t think we have much time before those idiots realize there’s no room 419 on this floor, so we’re really on the clock. You see what we’re looking for anywhere?”
Sasha kept breathing hard as she scanned the room, before wordlessly rushing off next to a window overlooking a side alley which connected to the one the rest of their their group was perched on. Underneath, a backpack emblazoned with the UN’s logo was stuffed haphazardly next to a vending machine. Apparently, it had been tossed there in a rush as the building was put under lockdown, rather than carefully hidden. She picked it up, looked it over, and nodded at Burai.
“Great. Although…” He looked around the room a few times before returning his attention back to her.
“...unless there’s a parachute in there, I’m not sure it matters much. The lower floors are crawling with exterminators. I don’t see any obvious exits, and I really don’t favor our odds for a 3-story fall. Sasha?”
“Burai, get over here.”
Burai sauntered over as fast as his legs would carry him. She gestured at the window with her head.
“...You can’t be serious.”
“I am. There’s a dumpster below us, we passed it earlier. Filled with fabric, probably a load of blankets they threw out. You’ll be fine. Just cover your head and land feetfirst.”
“Sasha, I think I’d rather burn— AHCK!—”
With Burai in one arm and the backpack in the other, Sasha kicked out the window screen and jumped before she could stop to regret the decision.

The brunt of the pain stabbed her side, as a couple of Burai’s spines slipped past her unzipped jacket to jab themselves in her torso. Aside from that minor embarrassing oversight, she was unharmed. Her complete lack of training was handily circumvented by sheer dumb luck and the merciful softness of discarded hotel bedding. By the time she reoriented herself, Burai was already dragging her out of the dumpster. Bedsheets clung to his spikes, but aside from his pride, he too seemed unharmed.
Another hand, or rather bandaged paw, pulled her to her feet. Tressa encircled her like a short fluffy snake, apparently checking for injuries. Satisfied after two coils, he switched to watching their flank as the rest of them regrouped and recuperated. James was helping Burai pick fabric from his spines. Trish eyed the backpack, before turning her attention to the spot of red at her side.
“Sasha, can you move?”
“Yes. It’s just a skin wound, I’ll be fine. Is Beast all set to go?”
James’ muffled voice rang out from behind her. “Practically raring, last I checked! And a good thing too, because we’re skipping town immediately. Don’t have any time for the usual runaround, not with all this unwanted attention.”
As they closed in on the main street, Sasha zipped up her jacket to cover the wound and slung the backpack over a shoulder. She tried to act normal and casual, though the most she could realistically manage in that regard was to cover any limp from the pain in her torso. The rest of them slipped into their rehearsed roles, immediately cutting any discussion about the situation in favor of meaningless small talk which nobody could take notice of. Hopefully, their acting would be enough to cover for her lack thereof.
The street was awash with people, a viscous fluid of bodies pulling every which way. The lively roar of activity would be enough to cover their tracks as they made their way back to Beast, even if the exterminators realized they had a runaway. Still, time worked against them. The sooner they could get going, the better.

Memory transcript subject: Kelsen, Venlil extermination officer
Date [Standardized Human Time]: February 29th, 2177
Location: City 23, Venlil Prime
Kelsen watched through the screen of a digital scope as the ragtag group of predators and predator diseased piled into their little barely-functional van, practically crushing each other for lack of space. Once they were packed in shoulder-to-shoulder like cattle, the pathetic thing sputtered to life and limped out into the street.
They must’ve assumed the van was untraceable owing to its advanced age. It was true that automated systems wouldn’t cooperate, but a tracker planted on the underside would have no issues. Their retreat would lead the law straight back to their den.
Well... OK, so maybe the law could wait a moment. Official practice dictated that anything “contaminated” by predators be burned without delay, but he just couldn’t have that. Since the idiotic Federation-wide ban on near-sentient surveillance AI a couple years ago, their leads on predator subversives were running thinner by the day. A raid could gather invaluable intel.
He already had a squad lined up, with body armor instead of hazard suits and kinetic weapons instead of flamethrowers. He’d even rallied up an investigator, a successfully reeducated human who hunted information rather than helpless prey. It would be such a shame to let all that go to waste and simply burn their hideout to ash; that could always come later. Besides, he’d put far too much effort into tracking this group to simply pour some napalm and call it a day.
His little raid would have to operate outside the law to get results. That hadn’t been an issue to arrange, of course, but it meant that if things went south they wouldn’t get any backup. He couldn’t afford to be hasty about this.
But he couldn’t afford to be passive, either. The facial recognition software they’d used to ID and track the Gojid was already skirting the law; their raiding party was actively flaunting it. Kelsen couldn’t let his noble work fall victim to the chains of bureaucracy.
If he wanted to get away with this, he’d have to do it tonight.

You love to serve and take care of your man. It’s not so much a kink more than it is just who you are. You are very adaptable to meet my needs, as I meet yours. You believe in completing small acts of service for your man. You believe that giving yourself fully to your partner is the ultimate power exchange and show of devotion and trust.
US: I crave a 1950 American style relationship dynamic with traditional gender roles. I'd love for you to share your day with me; be able to trust me enough to be yourself around me; finally let your guard down, confide in me, submit to me because you trust me to protect you, take care of you, teach--guide--mentor you using my life experience and resources to help you become a better version of yourself.

Ukraine has allegedly sabotaged Zaporizhia to melt down like Chernobyl, to stop the Russian invasion and justify NATO peacekeepers.
Here's Biden's plan to avoid another Kabul:

Russo-China rejects Biden

"Don’t underestimate Joe’s ability to fuck things up." – Barack Obama
Clearly we underestimated him. Americans can hardly believe that Biden blew up Nord Stream 2, essentially attacking our colony "ally" Germany. Perhaps they're still reeling from Kabul falling faster than Hanoi.
Normally Russia endeavors to cooperate with the sitting US president. However, Russian state media has begun airing the Hunter Biden laptop images, of Hunter engaged in drugs and pedophilia with preteen girls. This is retaliation for Biden crossing Russia's red line by repeatedly trying to sabotage Zaporizhia Nuclear Power Plant (ZNPP). That's why Russia is willing to assist in the impeachment of a sitting US president, which is obviously an extreme step to take between two countries with enough nukes to blot out the Sun.
Rumor has it that China has also turned on Biden, which would make sense: China's economic backing allows Russia to survive US sanctions. China wants Taiwan, and Russia wants East Ukraine. They would be stupid not to cooperate.

ZNPP as potential Chernobyl

A Redditor explains:
Kawaii-Gopnik Russia really needs that powerplant without any leak, to provide industry of surrounding regions with energy, but very few people understand contexts of the current situation: Soviets built complicated and very well ballanced energy system, including not only NPP, but also cascade of hydro power plants. Donetsk, Dnepr, Zaporozhe and Kharkov regions are just one big power hungry plant. NPP itself is reliant on hydropower and quality of water in Dnepr river. In case of really bad "accident" Russia will forget about development of the newly accuired regions, lack of energy produced by NPP is significant, nearly 30-40%. Accident will affect south of Ukraine with russian majority. It will also be also disaster for ecology of the WHOLE Black Sea. Rose of winds will spread nuclear dust to the West - Poland, Romania, Czechia and further. Nuclear zone will stop russian army from further territorial expansion. This will be border formed by Dnepr and nuclear zones.
The basic facts are documented by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). Even while shut down, ZNPP needs external power grid or diesel to prevent its reactors from overheating.
Russia controls ZNPP. A nuclear "accident" would give NATO pretext to intervene, so Ukraine keeps trying to cause one.
How bad is this? Well, Chernobyl is in Ukraine. That was a 1k MW reactor. ZNPP has six. It is the 9th largest NPP in the world.
Hopefully the containment response would be much better than Chernobyl's, but that's hardly something to count on during WW3. Russia's nuclear doctrine includes pre-emptive strikes; who knows what they'd do. The USSR nearly launched twice during the Cold War.
Imagine if China assisted Texas in seceding from the USA to rejoin Mexico, and then caused a reactor meltdown at Comanche Peak Nuclear Power Plant when the USA retook it. A lot of Southerners would want to lob a few nukes back at China. They might demand it.
It is foolish to assume WW3 will not happen because it hasn't happened yet. One should look instead at the historical record of continual warfare, and the difficulties in preventing WW3 so far:
Thus one cannot rule out a radiation release 6x as bad as Chernobyl. Not that Ukraine needs anything so dramatic. It merely seeks a pretext to justify direct NATO intervention to "protect" ZNPP. A small leak will suffice.
Even if there is a major radiation leak, it will occur in Russian-annexed separatist territory, and help Ukraine defend her new border. Scorched earth is a valid tactic, whether the fire is conventional or nuclear. Ukraine survived Chernobyl and knows it can survive ZNPP too.

Biden's Ukraine is desperate enough for scorched-earth tactics

Battle of the Bulge at Bakhmut

"We have been working on the counter-offensive with Ukraine for 4-5 months." – Victoria Nuland
Why is Ukraine so desperate?
Ukraine depends on NATO aid to fight Russia. NATO aid depends on Democrat willingness. Democrat willingness depends on US public support. Therefore the illusion must be maintained to the American public that Ukraine is winning. For this reason, Ukraine has committed its reserves to a costly failed counter-offensive. Bakhmut fell regardless.
James A. Donald summarizes the strategic picture:
So, bright new plan. "The Greatest Ukrainian Offensive". The Ukraine would build up a big reserve of fresh troops, then suddenly hurl large chunks of them at particular points on the front. They would, the Americans planned, cut through a point in the front lines, penetrate to Russian rear areas, wreak havoc on those areas, and force Russian troops in danger of being encircled to hastily retreat from territory that had been slowly gained at enormous cost in grinding attritive warfare. I do not know how big the Ukrainian strategic reserve was, but if it was two hundred fifty thousand, they have now committed most of them to grinding attritive warfare, and cupboard is looking as bare of men as it is of artillery and rockets.
The USA expected to break Russia economically; China's economic support prevented that. Despite PMC Wagner's heartfelt complaints, Russia is unlikely to run out of convicts anytime soon. Russia is rotating divisions through Ukraine, seasoning reservists for a looming WW3. Russia's historical appetite for losses is much higher than its current losses. This is essentially a civil war, and the Russia bear considers being carved up an existential threat. By underestimating Russia's resolve, NATO is repeating the error of Napoleon and Hitler.
Despite having plenty of weapons, Ukraine's military manpower is exhausted and demoralized. Raw conscripts are thrown at the front lines with minimal training. Medvedev predicts that the Ukraine will cease to exist; half its people have already fled.
Anonymous Sat 27 May 2023 04:59:49 No.428438077 Report 428437208 Yeah, the killing has been excessive since they pretty much destroyed 95% of Azov fags and assorted true believers in the first 200k dead, now they overshot it by 100%. About 12% of the non-Russian speaking population's prime military aged men in Ukraine are dead or crippled. 12-20% of the same demographic has fled the country. It's over, desu. They are seeing much more of the polish and romanian mercs now, since they literally lack the manpower.
Western mass media wrongly assumes that Russia is losing because it does not take the entirety of Ukraine in a blitz, as the USA did to Iraq. However, Russia does not want West Ukraine; the people there do not like Russians. Russia has captured the territory it wants, and is now using the rest of Ukraine as a kettle or cauldron, in which to conveniently destroy whatever NATO wishes to send. This is a good way for Russia to gradually learn how to fight NATO armies in a low-risk environment.
The Spartans had a rule never to war too often against the same enemy, lest they train up a nemesis. It was foolish of NATO to believe that Russia had forgotten the lessons of attrition warfare that it learned so recently in Afghanistan.
Nehming Names 9h Russia's prudent caution in directly engaging the West is bringing dividends in perhaps unexpected ways. Russia is gaining strategic knowledge of the actual capabilities and weaknesses of our weapon systems and military tactics, with our supply of munitions draining to militarily unsustainable levels, as it engages allied forces in Ukraine. Russia is aware of the continuing progress of the Great Awakening in the West, that is, the knowledge that Western governments, military, and institutions are run by an elite hostile to their heritage populations, and therefore expects to see declining support of Western governments by their citizens. Russia can also see the precipitous decrease in every societal metric in the West: social cohesiveness, general morality, public health, financial stability, military readiness, etc.With these three degradative processes in play, the most strategic thing Russia and China can do is to bide their time, as time itself will act to sap the strength of the West to militarily engage their foes.

Fresh meat

Russian conquest of Kiev would air Biden's dirty laundry to the world, from Burisma kickbacks to pedophilic field trips and worse. This would result in US "regime change". A distant Chernobyl is a small price to pay, for top Democrats to avoid the hangman's noose.
Poland is itching to invade. Victoria Nuland is scheduling NATO air exercises. USAF propaganda asserts that Russia's air force is a joke. The question is, do Americans still believe Biden's false prophets of victory?
If not, they just need a little "encouragement": 9/11, Gulf of Tonkin, Pearl Harbor, Lusitania, Remember the Maine… Keep those rural Whites busy lest they make trouble at home!
Most Americans cannot find Ukraine on a map. (To be fair, it hasn't been on the map very long.) However, the architects of Biden's Ukraine policy, such as Victoria Nuland, Jake Sullivan, Antony Blinken and George Soros, tend to have grandparents of Eastern European origin. I am sure for them it feels important. There's no place like home.
A Redditor explains:
tinglevibestoo I listened to a former CIA agent talk about Ukraine the other day. He said that Ukraine is running out of time. It's not that they don't have the weapons. We've sent them a ton of weapons. It's that they don't have enough troops and they're running low on troops. That's how Russia will win. Ukraine can't sustain the manpower. It totally makes sense to use a nuclear false flag as a reason to bring in the extra manpower. Everyone would deem it justified too because it's a threat to the neighboring nations and it'd be an environmental (climate change) catastrophe.

Teixeira leaks

Some will bring up the US intelligence leaks by Jack Teixeira to support the idea that Russia rather than Ukraine is desperate. Unlike Snowden, Teixeiera was obviously a major security risk for patriotically-motivated leaking, with numerous red flags in his previous and ongoing behavior. Therefore Teixeira was probably a deliberate leak by US intelligence, using a patsy to generate the initial leak and then add whatever extra info they wanted released in the resulting confusion.
Teixeira's leaks served several purposes for the Biden administration:
Most importantly, it mitigated the potential political fallout from another catastrophe like Kabul, should Kiev fall.
The 4chan leaker BB/Inb4source asserts Teixeira was a patsy.


The foundation of the US empire is the petrodollar, which allows the USA to tax the world via digital debt seignorage. This is why the creation of BRICS as an independent financial and trading system rendered war between NATO and BRICS inevitable, as Kim Dotcom predicted. The US republic is a thalassocratic empire as arrogant as democratic Athens, and it is addicted to financial plunder. The Empire cannot afford to lose the USD's reserve currency status.
Reserve currencies and empires both have lifespans, and the USA has reached the end of both. It is at the stage where hubristic foreign misadventures prove fatal, and Ukraine and Taiwan will prove too much for the American eagle to handle. This is no longer WW2; the USA cannot win a two-front war against BRICS.
That is why Biden's NATO is desperate; the Empire is unravelling as the European Union and other allies such as Turkey and India lose their faith in NATO.
The fact that none of this is common knowledge speaks volumes about who controls public schools and owns mass media corporations.

ZNPP's weak point is diesel fuel

The situation at ZNPP is tenuous and grim, workers report:
Europe’s largest nuclear power station is on the frontline of the Ukraine war. SkyNews Twitter
The fact that the backup diesel reactors have not been maintained is particularly concerning, considering they have already been used 7 times.
UN nuclear chief raises alarm over Ukraine’s Zaporizhzhia plant Al Jazeera
Ukraine keeps trying to force a crisis at ZNPP to justify NATO intervention. In other words, Ukraine keeps shelling ZNPP to cut the one power line that still connects it to the grid.
This is extremely dangerous, external power is required for reliable cooling of the reactors and pools containing spent nuclear waste. Western media spent months last year pretending Kiev wasn’t shelling ZNPP.
Notice that the Russian side keeps ZNPP connected to the power grid, while the Ukrainian side pretends it cannot until the Russian invasion ends:
As you can see, Ukraine is not interested in being reasonable. Russia is happy to leave the NPP free of heavy military equipment, but Ukraine demands the removal of all troops and landmines from ZNPP as well. That would leave the plant undefended, which is obviously unacceptable.
(This is how perverse incentives work. A little ally with nothing to lose can start a world war. It's almost like dividing the world into two hostile nuclear alliances is a bad idea.)
When ZNPP loses external power, huge diesel generators automatically switch on to keep the reactors cool. How much diesel does this consume? Truckloads per day:
Anonymous Sat 27 May 2023 05:18:50 No.428439721 Report Quoted By: >>428463646 428436425 Still easy to transport diesel enough to keep them going In what? If NATO ops and Mercs are sabotaging trucks coming in, what do you think they are gonna carry diesel in to the plant? Is Russia gonna pack in rotopack Jerry cans on their back. Fill a truck up with 5 gallon cans and hope they make it past the snipers and sabotage? Do you have any clue how much fuel those big generators suck down in a day? Those generators to run the plants during shut down or failures are huge 500kw or bigger they are the size of whole 18 wheeler trailers. Those things will drink 50 gallons an hour. You gonna haul in 2.5 gallon rotopacks one at a time to keep it going?
Nuclear power plants have tough shielding. Allegedly the diesel generators are hidden underground. However, the diesel fuel supply is still vulnerable.
Normally the diesel generators have enough fuel for 10 days. However, ZNPP's diesel stockpile recently dipped to 4 days, according to 4chan leaker Inb4source.

Ukrainian saboteurs caught by ZNPP

On May 27, Ukraine accused Russian of planning to cause a leak at ZNPP:
OSINTdefender The Main Directorate of Intelligence for Ukraine has announced that the Russian Military is preparing for Large-Scale Provocation in the coming hours at the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant in Southern Ukraine that will reportedly Simulate an “Accident” at the Plant causing the Emergency Leak of Radioactive Substances which will be Blamed on Ukrainian Forces.
Then Russia announced it had caught saboteurs (presumably Ukrainian) in ZNPP's city:
Saboteurs who were preparing terrorist attacks on the NPP were detained in Energodar. They had with them maps and schematics of the nuclear power plant with marks for strikes that could lead to a nuclear catastrophe. The suspects are involved in collecting and transmitting information about the facilities of the Zaporozhye NPP on the instructions of the Ukrainian authorities. To communicate with the curators, they used foreign satellite systems, as well as foreign weapons for strikes and equipment for conducting reconnaissance and sabotage activities.
Enerhodar is the city that contains the ZNPP: See Enerhodar Wikipedia
Some object that the footage is "staged". Of course it is staged. The primary consumer of the helmet-cam footage is Russian military intelligence. The evidence shot was staged for their benefit. The short edited video that was released to the public has distorted voices, and avoids showing any faces. Thus even if the footage is authentic, it is still "staged".
The ZNPP maps displayed in the video don't appear to match the announcement text. The maps could simply show where diesel fuel trucks need to go. Russia does not wish to advertise the specific nature of ZNPP's vulnerability.
The saboteurs appear to be 3-man team, equipped with 3 rifles and 3 NLAW missile launchers.
The saboteurs had 5 frag grenades. Normally soldiers carry 2 or 3 grenades, but heavy weapons soldiers don't have to. The three smooth grenades are RGD-5s, a cheap outdated Russian model. The Russian troops removed the fuses from the grenades on the evidence table to avoid unpleasant surprises.
Some object that Ukrainian saboteurs wouldn't be so careless as to have printouts of the reactor map. However, the saboteurs' presence in Enerhodar already makes their target obvious. Presumably multiple teams were sent to intercept Russian diesel shipments.
The Enerhodar saboteurs would've been notified when satellites spotted their target. Until then, they should hide in the safehouse behind blackout curtains to avoid detection. The fact that these saboteurs were caught napping suggests a degree of incompetence, compared to other teams who presumably either avoided detection or fought back. One can assume that Ukrainian specops have suffered extreme casualties.

BB / Red Skull / Inb4source / Q

BB sent Q

Qanon has lost a tremendous amount of popularity, as patriots grew disillusioned with the slow pace of the promised Great Awakening. They did not understand that Q is subordinate to a higher power with an agenda that does not necessarily include their survival.
Q aimed to help Trump save the USA. Q was sent by "Burning Bush", whose agenda is judging humanity, on the eve of WW3 and runaway de-terraforming. BB's personas started posting to 4chan's pol by 2016, whereas Q started in October 2017. (4chan is like the wild west of the Web: The world's spooks congregate there to exchange intelligence.)
BB goes by several nicknames; he began posting anonymously as "Inb4source" in 2016. A recent message implies the USA/Israel is Babylon the Great, and God (meaning him) has returned to judge her:
The world has turned it's back on *od now *od Is turning His back on the world. He Who Lets has been REMOVED. THE ANGEL OF DEATH HAS COME THE HARVEST OF THE TARES HAS BEGUN. And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. (Earthquake Lights) And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double. How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. (nothing ever happens) Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her. And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning, inb4source
BB claims responsibility for the historical pendulum swinging rightward, via figures such as Elon Musk. His method of influence is the butterfly effect.
"Burning Bush" claims to be God. One can think of him as the God of the Old Testament, or as a pagan god like Zeus, or as merely a transcendent extraterrestrial. However, he also claims to inhabit a human-looking body, lives on a ranch in the USA, has children, caught COVID19, etc.
Whatever one's theology, the relevant portion of BB's message is that the USA did not sufficiently embrace the opportunity offered by Q. Anyone who has read the Old Testament knows what happens next: Ignore the prophet, reap the consequences. Thus Q's slogan "Nothing Can Stop What Is Coming" should be understood in the Biblical sense, like Noah's flood: The Ark is optional.
(As far as I know, Q is still posting to Truth Social. I don't follow that site.)
Paul Furber is the chief priest of BB. Before that, he was a major early proponent of Q. See Furber's book for many verifiable examples of fulfilled predictions and proven scoops.
BB normally identifies himself by the unique image hash of his burning bush picture. (Nobody can generate that hash unless they possess the original image.) However, BB also posts as an anon users nickname "Red Skull", for his signature images of red skulls. As Red Skull, BB avoids the extravagant Biblical claims of BB, but the style and modus operandi and interests are obviously the same – as are his implied godlike powers.
I recommend focusing on facts and trying to prevent nuclear WW3, rather than getting hung up on theology. BB is not asking anyone to worship him or sacrifice chickens. He does prescribe prayer and a life of action governed by virtue.
I certainly do not recommend taking everything anonymous spooks say at face value. If you are, like most people, unable to think in shades of gray between binary true and false, this essay is above your reading level.

BB warns Zaporizhia is pivotal

BB has repeatedly warned that keeping Zaporizhia intact is critical to the survival of NATO citizenry:
the Ukrainians attacking the Nuclear Power station in the hands of the Russians spewing radiation over enough territory that the Russians will turn Kiev into a furnace.

Those who find it difficult to believe that nuclear weapons would be used in WW3 as in WW2 should note that COVID19 is already a bioweapon WMD deployed for WW3.

RS gives ZNPP sabotage warning

On the morning of May 27, BB's persona Red Skull leaked that NATO specops had sabotaged external power to ZNPP.
His scenario is plausible and severe enough to warrant investigation.
Here are relevant posts, datestamped 2023 May 27 0300-0500:
it's a little less than ten days… Until Nato SpecOps melt down the Uke Nuke plant and blames it on you.
He continues:
Nato SpecOps have sabotaged power to the nuke plant. As of this posting, 6 days of diesel fuel remain to provide power to pumps to cool the plant and spent fuel pool. Diesel shipments are being targeted and terminated.
He adds:
So now I need to tell you Russia intends a pre emptive strike if nuclear capable F16's are delivered.
On the evening of May 27, Red Skull updated:
Doesn't look good at Nuke Plant. Russia has 4 days to get more fuel to the generators. They are working on clearing a flight path. Ukraine will try to stop them on orders of U.S. Uniparty.
Sounds like a severe leak, to lose 2 days of fuel in under 24 hours.

Ukraine HVT: Nuclear tit for tat

On 28 May Red Skull asserted that:
Red Skull approved of this anon's summary:
Nuclear warheads that USA/UK sent. Specifically for the purpose of being exploded in Ukraine. The false flags will never stop until all out WW3 is declared, or until you root out the pedophile demon cult that is running the show and sending you monkeys to war. War for really no good reason at this point. The cities are destroyed, just withdraw. Ukraine is a kettle right now, a kill box. Do you understand what that means? And it was created on purpose.
On May 30, Putin announced that Russia had destroyed the Ukrainian military intelligence headquarters. Photos confirm the damage.
Intelligence chief Kyrylo Oleksiyovych Budanov may have died in the strike.

Inb4source / Red Skull 4chan posting history

Inb4source has posted on 4chan since 2016, but he doesn't always use an image hash identifier, making it impossible to verify the identity of all of his early posts. As his popularity grew, others began adopting his catchphrase ">inb4source".
18016 posts on pol contain ">inb4source".
The first page of results suggests Inb4source is a pro-Trump military intelligence officer. He began posting in Aug 2016, before Trump's inauguration.
Another early Inb4source catchphrase is "I AM The Source." This has a double meaning, both theological and journalistic.
The catchphrase doesn't appear in every Inb4source post. Searching for it yields 437 results, too many of which are irrelevant results.
Searching for both phrases together yields 50 results that look to be mostly legitimate. One could then search for additional posts by each unique ID from a session.
Searching for image hashes is a reliable method of ID verification, assuming no one else has the image. I know of two such images that Inb4source/BB uses: both are red skulls, giving him the nickname RS.
RS just announced that his devices (phone, computers) have been compromised, casting doubt on the legitimacy of future RS posts. This may be a response to my publication of his warnings regarding Zaporizhia onto Reddit and Gab; the timing is suspicious. I first mentioned Inb4source on Reddit 7 days ago, and Red Skull on Gab yesterday (as of morning June 3). I do not know of any other analysts writing about him or connecting him to his BB persona.
When evaluating his warnings and predictions, remember that publishing info about ongoing events can affect the outcome, and is often intended to do so. Unlike the concept of Biblical prophecy, the future is mostly probabilistic. However, he is certainly good at scooping the news.
Someone else can do an in-depth Q-proof style analysis of his accuracy; my focus here is Zaporizhia.
