EPIQUE ? C'est donc bien moi qui avait écrit cela il y a 10 jours.

2020.07.27 23:03 HenrySeldon EPIQUE ? C'est donc bien moi qui avait écrit cela il y a 10 jours.

J'avais oublié. Et ça a été épique. J'ai demandé à une amie son opinion sur ce que je ressentais en ce moment.
- Tu as deux minutes ? - Suis là. - Je pense que j'ai une phase maniaque, je connais pas, j'ai jamais eu mais je connais tous les symptômes sur le papier et ça y ressemble. - Raconte - Sentiment de puissance. Raison sur tout. Présence de signes. Une énergie de rouleau compresseur. C'est déjà pas mal ? - Ouais, ca y ressemble "un peu" :) - Il parait qu''il y a une chute juste après la crête. Je vais attacher ma ceinture et faire attention en signalant ça à la psy. - Ça dépend mais généralement oui, une phase "dépressive" .- J'ai claqué la porte du boulot. Tous les morceaux de musique me "parlent". J'ai l'impression d'avoir bouffé tout le troupeau de lions. Et la, je viens de voir que le numéro de telephone de mon pere et celui de mon nouveau directeur sont pratiquement les memes. - Ta phase maniaque est peut-être liée au changement professionnel... excitation, appréhension, challenge, nouveauté, inconnu, lâcher prise, etc - J'ai remercié mon père il y a trois jours pour son rôle de père. - Ok. T'es carrément dedans. - C'est probablement lié :) - Tu es clean en ce moment ou tu te laches ? Ralentis tout, tes consos, l'absence de sommeil, etc. Et fais gaffe aux sous. Généralement, en phase maniaque on a tendance à claquer pour tout ou rien. - C'est modéré, ça s'appaise. Et j'ai posé un arrêt de travail pour ne pas y retourner.

J'avais dit que ça allait être épique. Je ne m'attendais pas à cela. L'arrêt de travail était finalement probablement une bonne idée dans cet élan d'enthousiasme suspect. On va en profiter pour résumer l'ensemble de la situation dans un mail avec en pièce jointe les derniers mails envoyés au boulot. Ca fera une belle surprise pour le retour de vacances de ma psy. Je sais pas si elle aura l'air inquiète ou pas cette fois-ci. Ca va pas être pas facile à déterminer avec le masque. Heureusement qu'il y a la position du corps que je peux interpréter comme signe de son inquiétude.
.
..
...
Grmbl. Putain. Je me suis farçi tout le règlement intérieur de mon nouveau poste. Je suis entièrement d'accord avec toutes les lignes que j'ai bien voulu lire. C'est pour cela que j'ai ragé pendant quatre ans. Si c'est pas un signe ça. Et Linkedin m'a proposé de féliciter mon patron pour sa réussite dans son nouveau rôle depuis un an. Il y a des anniversaires comme cela.
J'ai aussi eu une relance de l'inspection du travail à laquelle je n'ai pas donné suite.
Ca doit être le lion ça. Le truc que je viens de bouffer. Ca a commencé le 23 juillet. C'est le jour ou j'ai envoyé le mail pour annoncer que je ne reviendrais pas et qu'ils pouvaient se débrouiller avec mon arrêt de travail.
Cette période devrait donc se terminer au 22 août. Date à laquelle je reviens d'une semaine passée avec mon père entre deux séances de chimio.
Des signes tu disais ? Des signes qu'il disait. Genre si même le Zodiac s'y met. Tu me fatigues.
A dans un mois à la redescente de l'avion.

2020.07.23 17:20 andontheslittedsheet TIL There is still an unofficial career scoring record that Gordie Howe has over Wayne Gretzky: most time spent as the NHL career leader in goals

If anybody has a better idea how to word this, let me know, but to be clear, here’s what I’m talking about.
On Jan. 24, 1960, Gordie Howe became the NHL all-time career points leader, notching his 951st point in his 892nd game, taking over the title from the legendary Maurice “Rocket” Richard (there’s an interesting thread from kungfucanuck that details how there was actually some back and forth between them earlier that month on the record). Even though he still played 875 more games in the NHL, and added 899 points to that record-breaking number, from that day forward, he was always #1 in NHL career points, until Oct. 15, 1989, when Wayne broke his record (1852 points in his 780 career games...he had 3 points that game). I.E. although the exact number of points involved in that record was changing, Howe was always the record-holder during that span. It’s not the number but who holds it...the career points “championship belt”, so to speak.
There was a little publicity this season about it being the 30th anniversary of Wayne breaking Gordie’s record and becoming the all-time points leader. From that article:
Coincidentally, the 30-year anniversary of Gretzky overtaking Howe also means that Gretzky has now been atop the all-time list for as many seasons as his idol. Howe surpassed Maurice Richard on the all-time list during the 1958-59 season and remained in first place on through to the aforementioned 1988-89 campaign. That’s a 30-year run atop the league’s all-time points list. However, unlike Howe, Gretzky doesn’t face the prospect of losing the all-time mark anytime soon – or possibly ever.
I think those dates are a little off actually but you get the point. Gretzky just broke that “number of years” record only just recently...and I think we’d all agree there’s no end in sight to that particular record, so Gretzky should continue to hold it for many, many years to come.
Just in case anybody’s forgotten, Gordie Howe was really good at hockey. He was the career leader in goals, assists, AND obviously points simultaneously for a period of around 30 years for each statistic, until Gretzky came around and did the same. And if you didn’t know, they were friends and each appreciated the other tremendously. Here is a fantastic article with some great quotes from Howe on Gretzky’s game.
The assists record is interesting because even though Howe is maybe more often thought of as a goal scorer, he actually broke the career assists record first. Howe actually led the league in assists three times. If that doesn’t sound like that much...the only other players to do so that many times are all HOFers or highly likely to be, notably including three recent players who are still ineligible as yet but obviously among the best passers of their time: Henrik Sedin, Joe Thornton, and Jaromir Jagr. In fact, the only players to lead the league in assists more than 3x are Bobby Orr (5x), and Wayne Gretzky of course, who led so many times I honestly didn’t even want to count them up (16x).
Howe broke the career assists record on 11/28/1957, notching his 409th career assist in his 733rd game...this time overtaking Richard’s former linemate and “Punch Line” center Elmer Lach (who had retired in 1954). Gretzky broke Howe’s career assists record on 3/1/1988, with 1050 assists in 681 GP. So roughly 30 years after that, in 2018, Gretzky broke Howe’s number-of-years-at-the-top reign for career assists too. And again, in typical Gretzky fashion, it seems incredibly unlikely anyone’s going to dethrone his assists total for the foreseeable future.
What I was surprised to find, though, is that Howe actually STILL has the longest timespan for which he was the career leader in goals.
Howe broke the career goals record on 11/10/1963, notching his 545th career goal in his 1132nd game...and again, he overtook Richard for the lead, although as you can see, it took him a bit longer to break that record. Richard retired in 1960...and just to show how dominant these two guys were and how different the landscape was at the time...the 3rd-place career goal-scorer at the time? Howe’s former teammate, Ted Lindsay, with 365 goals. Ted actually was 3rd-place in each of career goals, assists, and points at the time Howe broke each record.
Gretzky broke the career goals record on 3/23/1994, with 802 goals in 1171 GP, so Howe held it for a span of roughly 30 years, 4 months. It took Gretzky significantly longer to break Howe’s goals record than his points record as well, which is why as of today, Gretzky has “only” held the career record for 26 years, 4 months. So Howe still holds this unofficial record, for a little while at least.
Where this could get really fun is with Ovechkin. We all know he’s chasing 894, and he’s obviously got as good a shot at it as any current player. If Ovi can keep up his current totals of ~50 goals per season, then he would break Gretzky’s career goals record in 4 seasons. So if everything happens just right...it’s possible that Ovi would get 895 before the end of the 2023-24 season, i.e. before Gretzky surpassed Howe’s 30+ year span of being the career goals leader (it would probably get down to the months/days level...but still). That would mean that Howe would still have this unofficial record for another 30+ years at minimum afterward. Or perhaps even more interestingly, it would make this one of the very few career scoring records that Gretzky was never able to obtain, even if it's unofficial. Interesting stuff!

2020.06.22 03:14 ShadeNLM064pm Subject 696's experience with the K.E.M. foundation.

A friend once told me that if I were to write something down about my past, that it would be less of a weight over my shoulders, so here I am. I have been called dozen of names, but for the most part, 696 was an identity I had to claim as my own.
I used to be a young girl named Mina, with skin that was pale yet fair, brown hair that came just to my neck, and very odd eyes. I had two different colors per eye, and today it would be labeled as central hypnochronism. My left eye had an amber core with a brown outside, and my right eye had a green core with a blue ringed outside. I couldn't have been more then six when the first event of my horrible life.
My mother' and father' parents both came off the May Flour only a decades prior. I had always loved my parents, and I thought they loved me back. The never hit me when I didn't finish cleaning the house, they never used fowl langue to me if I broke a dish, and they never locked me in a small room when I tried to help the guys of the village to farm. One day my mother had asked me if I would like to come to work with her, and I said yes. We walked into the forest that boarded our town, and walked for longer time then I could imagen. We had set out in the very early morn, and I think we arrived at the facility at about late evening.
The building was very lend, wide, and blindingly white. I had to look away so that it wasn't burning my eyes out. I did manage to get a decent look at it, and it was rather plain. For The most part, the walls were made of thick, extra large bricks, and there were no windows on the side we were on. When we walked through the heavy, steel like door, we were greeted with a waiting room of white, with a few shades of grey here and there. My mom was talking to someone behind the front counter, so I just sat down on one of the few chairs
"Hey sweet pea, why don't we get you some special medicine so you don't get measles?"
"Okay!"
A lot of people have died from that ailment, so I figured if there was a way for me to avoid it, I should take it. I was taken away by one of the 'doctors' took me to a back room, and sat me down in a cheap wooden chair. They said they would start to give the medicine through needles, which made me a little nervous, but I aloud it. A few more 'doctors' and 'nurses' came into the room and starts to inject me with medicine. one after another needle after needle send was injected into me. after what felt like hours of them injecting unknown amount of medicine into me, one of them asked me if they could put in one more into me, saying that it was more, experimental, then the other stuff they had injected into me. I had said yes, but what a fool I was for applying to his question. The last needle was filled with a very diffent liquid then the others. It was only half empty, with a dark line green fluid, the was very opaque. I was about to change my mind about out it, when they slammed the needle into my right arm. I started to feel sick right away. I had tried to stand up to leave and find my mom, but I could hardly stand as the room began to spin. My head ached, my bones and musuls growned as I collapsed hard onto the cold white ground. My eyes began to twitch uncontrollably, and I couldn't move. There was a small crack in the door, and I saw two more 'doctors' came in and started to drag me away to who knows where. My father had arrived and looked to be signing a contract with the head 'doctor'.
"So it's a deal, we'll be working for you make sure that freakshow never gets to see the light of day with her ugly eyes ever again,"
"Glad to have you on our side sir, welcome to the K.E.M. foundation,"
When I had awoke, I had found that I was chained up in a small room with two others. They looked human, but I could tell something was very off about then. They looked beaten up, one ever had some scars over their left eye. One of them was shaking me, trying to wake me up.
"Kiddo, kiddo wake up!"
"Ugh, where am I, and who are you?"
"Kiddo, I honestly don't know where we are, but I am subject 001, but please call me Sammy, Sammy Lauren, kiddo, I know we just met and you likely don't trust me, but I am afraid your parents brought you to hell on earth,"
"T-that can't be true, m-mom and dad would never do this to me, I'm their little girl, dad said so!"
"Sorry kiddo, I wish I was, you will see that one day, so, who are you?"
"I'm Mina, but yy-you're lying, I don't believe you!"
I didn't want, to believe this stranger, there was no way my loving, caring parents would do this to me. I refused to talk to them fora whole week. Two of the 'doctors' came by our cell, and said they were going to treat me. I went with them willingly, I was going to prove Sam wrong. They took me into another blinding white room, with wall half way made of a thin as paper glass, where some 'doctors' and my parents staring in at me. From the ceiling of the cold room, a few large metal claws creeked out. One of them was holding an old needle, with a very hollow, boiling liquid burning inside it. I tried to flee the room, but the other two claws grabbed me around my shoulders. I struggled against them, this should be illegal to do to a child.
"Stop struggling, you are only making things harder for yourself,"
I didn't recognize The voice that barked at me, but the minute I froze, the cow sized needle pierced my slender arm. I hadn't understood real pain until the liquid was forced in my blood stream. It burned like an iron, and I was almost screaming out in pain. The claws dropped me, and could fell something was wrong with me. I felt as something form on my head, and as I looked at my right hand, a set of claws rocketed into my eye. I screamed out in pain as my vision became blurry. I felt as bones rapidly formed out and down my back, and fat, muscle, skin, and even hair form. I wanted to kill them, as my hunger from not eating for a week straight got to me. As my good eye's vision cleared, I started to bang and claw against the glass, finding it much tougher then at first glance. Everyone was in fear, expect my father whom mumbled in a low roar,
"I told you she was a monster,"
"I could tell sir, no human would have those eyes,"
I looked at myself at the monitor for only a split second before going back to what I was doing. I could see that what I had become, truly was not human. On the top of my skull, I had gained two fully functioning wolf ears that were pinned on the screams as I broke the glass with one final blow. I had a long, slick tail that was down low, whipping around ready for a fight. My claws were short daggers as I clawed at one of them, cutting right over their stomach. Then there were my eye. My left one, the one that I didn't stab, had been a blood lustful red, and my pupils was a slit that was as narrow as an arrow, while my right iris was an icy cold white, with a human pupil by some merical, with four puctures wounds that were about the size of the tip of a sharpened pencil. My mother muttered, low under her breath, like she didn't want me hearing,
"Y-you are a monster, w-why d-did I keep you alive?"
That... Was just painful to here, but I didn't have the chance to deal with it playing in my head on loop because one of the scientist had drugged me and made me black out again.
"Kiddo... KIDDO WAKE UP!"
Sam was yelling in my ears as they tried to shake me awake, a look of relief washed over their messed up face as I opened my eyes, still burning with pain. They had looked to have thought that I had died in my sleep, or rather that's how most people end up going.
"Kiddo, I'm glad you are alive, so they decided to make you a wolf huh? Must have been some kind of cruel joke making you an Ultima,"
"Why would you care about a monster like me?"
"Kiddo, do you really think I'mma human? That's a foolish asumion, no body here is human, well, not anymore,"
"Then what are you?"
"I am a shapeshifter with a wolf base form,"
"Can you show me?"
"Wish I could kiddo, but this place is very.... Restrictive on what we can and cannot do, if we break one of the rules, we will be gravely punished, and depending on what we do, it can range from getting shocked with 1,000 volts of electricity, to... Things that you shouldn't learn about until you are older,"
Sammy turned to wake our other cell mate, and I noticed none of use were wearing normal clothing. We were all wearing the same outfit of black dress shorts, and a extremely, barely able to be called dress.
"Ugh, what is so~ important that you had to wake- oh, it looks like we have another cell mate,"
"No kidding, Mina, this is Triple Nine,"
"Hey Bucko, it's nice to meet you,"
"H-hi, so w-what are you?"
"Oh me? I'm just a fallen angel with upside down wings,"
Sam and Triple Nine were an odd pair. Sam was much taller then me, almost six feet at least, with chalk brown hair in a pixie cut. Her skin was as humanly pale as possible, like they hadn't seen the sun in eons, and they had amber eyes with slits, similar to my own. Triple Nine was a bit shorter then Sam, about fie feet six inches at most. They had a pair of black and deep blood red angel wings, that looked to have been roted over 180°. Their hair was as dark as night, and short and scrafty. Their skin was straight up white as a ghost, with very very faint freckles visible. They had blacked out eyes with glowing blood red irises, and their pupils were so small, they looked like they were about to break out in insanity. They made me a little nervous to say the very least.
"How...... How did you two get here?"
I had only asked because I wanted to get to know my new roommates, and I wanted to see if they had a family like me.
"I-I, I was kidnapped," Sammy Shamefully admitted, "I had a mom and one little brother, I was only ten when I was brought to my first lab, I fell for the whole 'We have your brother, if you want him to live, come with us,' what a saddening shock it must have been when I didn't come home that day after plowing the fields, and instead a bunch of monster-human half breed hybrids march into their home and... Well..."
"And I came a long time after Sam here, I though that the K.E.M. were workers from my orphanage telling me that someone wanted to adopt me, and that they were at my school to take me to my new family, I was sixteen, all I wanted was a family after mine died in one of many great wars my world had, and I got sent to Hell for it,"
"W-wow, that's terrible, I-I'm so sorry I-I asked,"
"It's fine bucko," Triple Nine sighed, "You just wanted to know,"
"I-I've got to ask, Sam, you said you came from other labs, isn't this the only one?"
"Oh I wish, Kiddo, their are thousands of labs around not only this world, but every dimension, every universe, and every multi-verse, there is no real escape from this Hall hole, so you might want to get used to it,"
Well this was just great. I was blind in one eye, I had wolf ears and a tail, and I found out my parents sold me to the devil so they could have immortality. I was wondering what else I would end up getting into, and boy was I in for a ride. We were all taken to the floor two above the one where we were heald in against our will, to what looked to be a giant cafeteria. Over four thousand subjects, or at least as many I could count, were all sitting in long, cheap, wooden tables that stretched across the entire room. The food they tried to serves us looked like it had came from the landfill. As I was walking to one of the few openings at one of the tables with my tray of trash, one of the subjects decided it would be funny to trip me and try to make me lose my only meal for the day. I somehow managed to back flip and in the process shove one of my two bowls of fake potato into his ugly face. The crowd around him was laughing as he wiped the gooy gravy off and out of his mouth and nose. He had wolf ears like myself, but seemed to lack a tail, and he had dragon wings from what I could tell, binded together with very think, heavy chains and zip ties. I found out he had the most southern accent I have ever heard to date
"Y'all think you're so funny, ain't yah?! If y'all really want to mess with me 696, y'all be haven another thing a comin'"
I had no clue why in the name of God he had called me '6-9-6', but I knew he was askin' for a fight. I had taken a large bite of the dry as sand watermelon, making sure to keep as many seeds as possible in my mouth while swallowing the rest of it.
"Oh yeah Buddy, what cha gonna do about it? Ride 'em?"
I knew mocking him was likely the last thing I should have done, but the Wolf inside of me was doin all the barken right now, He stood up as he slammed his hands down onto the table,
"What's a little girl like y'all gonna do bout it? Y'all don't have family for back you up, while me and my boys-"
I started to spit the seeds in my mouth to the back of his throat and he started choking. The others just had started to laugh, and he did not look happy. He started to charge at me, claws out, and glowing green, I started to spit the seeds at him like a Tommy Gun. I managed to do some skin damage, and even hit him quite a few times in the eye when he tried to get close to me. He was down on the floor, crying like a baby, and I just kept the aged seeds in my mouth as I spat,
"Y'all should keep your pretty mouths shut, I may be a pup, but I ain't one to be taken lightly,"
One of the other subjects had gotten up and started to walk towards me. They had skin, or rather scales, that were as green as spring tree leaves, with spinach eyes, and find instead of ears or hair.
"I think this kiddo deserves to know about our little Rumble Club! DON'T YOU THINK EVERYONE?!"
The crowd cheered as this fish lady roared out a promising offer. I moved over enough so she could sit next to me,
"I'm subject 073, now, you seem like a very good option to become our next Rumble Area Champion, so, how would you like to join?"
"Okay, sure, but... How do I get there?"
"Oh, so you're one of the newbies, I was wondering why you'd dare to mess with him, I'll show you, tonight, be there or be square, and I'd watch yourself 696, most that are kept in the same holding cell as Triple Nine tend not to make it through one Lab Decade without getting apart of their soul put into them,"
"...So has anyone ever escaped this lab?"
She almost spat out her dirty, lead filled water and laughed, "ARE YOU KIDDING?! No body can even dream of being outside, if we dare leave, they'll either get electrocuted with 1,000 volts of electricity, and it increases every five times you try to, or they kill us, and even id we manages to escape, the monsters will probably kill us,"
"M-monsters, w-what do you mean by that?"
"Child, do you really think all that DNA they insert into us comes from animals? (Well a few types do, but for the most part,) they've been trying to get ahold of any and all monster DNA and monsters they can, if they manage to safely 'contain' a monster, they're going to do something similar to what they have been doing to everyone else here,"
"...May I ask... How did you get here? You don't have to answer if you don't like,"
"My parents thought this was a Christianity Camp and sent me here because I didn't believe in God, although I don't think I am in my home world anymore, I was about fourteen I think, I miss my home sometimes,"
"I am sorry about what happened to you,"
"Don't be child, you can't change the past, although I would like to be able to see the ocean one last time, but I doubt that can ever happen again,"
"Do you think anyone could ever get out of here and live to tell the tale?"
"It's always possible, but I doubt that it'll ever truly happen, all the walls are made of Cpyclopcein, the heaviest stone in the known universe, and there are only three doors leading out, the front, back, and the emergency exit, all tend to be heavily guarded and have black reinforced steel locks,"
"But there just has to be a way to get out of here,"
"I hate to break it to you child, but you either get out of here by dying, or those three doors, no exceptions,"
I didn't believe in her when she said no one could get out of here alive, so I decided to plan a massive break out. To do that however, I needed to know how to read and write, if I had no way of telling the other subjects without it getting caught, well it would be like trying to cut a wheel of pepper jack cheese with a toy knife. I decided to ask if 073 could teach me how to do so, and she was more then happy to oblige. Thankfully I was a quick learner and before I knew it, I could understand most of the English language from around the muti-verse, I also decided to learn Spanish, French, German, and even Chinese in case I needed to use it. Thankfully I never did. I had evolved into a lone wolf over the course of time, after all it was quite a bit better to hide out in plain sight when I didn't have too many others to worry about. The only people outside of those I was making the break out plans with, were Sammy and Triple Nine.
I was about set with my plan when I saw someone's little sister get scooped right in front of them, and they were crying on the floor with streaks of make-up smearing down her face. I decided to add her to the break out plans as well, we did have an odd number anyway. I had gathered the best healers, fighters, and defenders that weren't fully under the control of the K.E.M. foundation, along with Sol, Sammy, Triple Nine, and 073, and we all fled the building at once during a full mooned night. We had started to break up into smaller and smaller groups, until I realized I had lost my partner for this, 073. I knew looking for her was a lost cost, so I just carried on without her. I leaped into the trees, after all I figured if they brought out those mind controlled subjects, or what ever was truly going on with them, that it'd be harder to follow my scent. I was lunging from tree to tree for a while before I froze in my tracks. Next to me, I saw a very tall, slender being standing just a yard away from me. I could only guess he was over fourteen feet by the fact he was managing to not hit his head on one of the tree branches that hung a foot taller then that. He was wearing the darkest suit and tie I have ever seen, with a white dress shirt, and black dress shoes. I was tempted to start a fight with him, but then far in the distance I hears the scientist were closing in. I had to think fast to save this guy from a horrible fate.
"Who ever you are, run, hide, they'll be after you next, and they don't stop for anyone, or anything,"
He glared up in my direction, and to my surprise, he had absolutely no face. He gave me a light nod of notification, and as soon as I blinked he was gone. I was about to continue to flee when I felt a tazer shoot up and stab me in the back, one thousand volts dashed through my body like they were running a marathon. I fell backwards out of the tree, landing hard on the ground with a slight crunch.
"I've got to admit, you are not a half dull child, thanks to you, we have lost over twelve subjects due to your little plot, but that just means we have more room for more subjects,"
They dragged me slowly back, and I wanted to break away from the and continue running free in the wild, but I could even move. I did wonder though who did I just encounter, and if I'd see them again. They didn't seem to be hostile to me despite what 073 had said, but that could just be because they weren't in the mood to kill me. I could tell quite a bit before I saw their face that they were not human, maybe I had smelt it since I was part wolf now. Once I was thrown in my cell, one of the scientist barked angrily at me,
"YOU ARE NOT GETTING ANYTHING TO EAT FOR A WEEK! I HOPE THIS WILL TEACH YOU A LESSON ABOUT TRYING TO LEAVE!"
I blew a raspberry at him, who gave a heck if I ate for a week? Humans could live three weeks without food, sure it made time go a bit slower, but who gave a fuck about time? I had only realized that neither Samy nor Triple Nine had managed to escape by some weird odds, and I saw Triple Nine was eating an arm of one of the scientist, boy did it look good.
"Do you want to know a secret bucko?"
"Sure?"
"Every subject 666, 999, 696, and 969 all end up going insane, and no one knows why or how this happens, it all started about ten to twenty thousand years ago in dimension 782, lab ü6, where their first subject 666 was being register, instead of 666 being imputed as their ID number, it was registered as their personally, and that's when things began to get... Weird... Soon every subject 666 was talking backwards nonsense. Sometimes they would posses other subjects, trying to find their way to freedom, most, if not all subjects 999s started to acted off as well, scientist and subjects began to go missing, livers began to show up out of nowhere, and blood always covered their cells, then the subjects 696 and 969 just became mad as a hatter, all of them either had to be put in a coma, or killed, thankfully the managed to catch me in time, which is why I am a fallen angel with upside down wings, I am not sure if they caught you in time, but if you start to show signs, consider yourself a dead man walking that night,"
"Triple Nine! You don't need to scare her! She is only a kid"
"She's seen people murdered before her eyes already, and someone had to say it,"
"Hey Triple Nine, do you have the ablitiy to talk to people that have a fragment of your soul with your mind?"
"Yeah, although it isn't the most stable connection, so most times, so when the few people that had a part of my soul that left the foundation I likely won't be able to talk to them for a while,"
"Did either of you see anyone that you didn't recognize when you were trying to run away? Anyone at all?"
"Uh, yeah," Sammy started, "But I didn't get a very good look at who they were,"
I did wish that she had said something along the lines of what I had saw, to prove I wasn't crazy, but I didn't tell them about what I saw either. As if they'd believe I saw a being over twice Sammy's height with pale as paper skin and no face walking around like a well dressed groom.
I snuck down to the ground floor after I remembered that there was a book shelf down their by one of the DNA containment rooms. I dove head first into reading as many as I could, not giving a heck about what they were about, just that I could read something. By the time I had gotten to my fifth, one of the few actual nurses in the lab had caught me in the act. I thought I was going to have to fight yet again, but to my surprise she just calmly said,
"You should get back to your cell 696, before you get yourself in trouble again,"
She sounded empathetic to me, like she pitied my very existence, and I was more then grateful to take that opportunity to head back to my cell. She had been a new worker they recruited when we had encountered, but she just didn't seem to be the kind of person you would find around here. I have to admit, she was a rather a attractive person, and she could have made a very good living just off modeling if she hadn't came to the foundation. She was a lean woman, with hair that could only br compared to the color of melted chocolate, and she had eyes like gems, diamond blue ring around an emerald core. She should, could, and would leave anyone wanting a better, up close look at her beauty. That day she was wearing a dress of ruby red underneath her lab coat, her hair was up in a high, tied off ponytail heald by a black hair tie. She was wearing solid black glasses with prescription lenses. When she walked up to my cell to check on me, I saw her figitting with a half smoked cigarette.
"You do realize how terrible those are for you right?"
"Yeah, so? I know very well, heck I went to doctor's schooling... Besides it helps with the stress,"
"That's just the nicotine talking, wouldn't black liquorice or dried kelp be much better choices than that death accelerate?"
"....it is none of your business,"
I could tell she was thinking of something, or someone, and as she did so, I swear I saw her hand change shape in front of my calm, dominate amber eye. It had changed from a dainty, small, elegant hand to a much more boney, enlonged claw, before changing right on back. I checked to see if anyone else was around to interrupt or eves drop on us, and once I saw the coast was clear, I whispered,
"You aren't human either, aren't you?"
Death looked right at me, and a very petite feeling of fear rolled down my back like water. She whispered back and mumbled to me,
"You aren't wrong kid, I am a sizeshifter (although the term human shifter could work as well), why do you ask?"
"You need to run as far away from here as you can, they didn't higher you for no reason, they'll experiment on you, they wanted your personal information because they want new experiments and monster DNA, you need to run,"
She didn't believe me, she though she could remain unharmed for her entire life here. I decided to try to run away again, but this time solo. After all I had became known throughout the lab network as one of the strongest fighters ever, and one of the youngest as well. Escaping the second time was actually easier then I had expected, but I took flight either way. I felt as free as a bird as my feet stride across the ground without any effort, but I knew it was only. A matter of time before they would catch me again. I had wished that I had waited one more day, then I could have been running on a full stomach and not an empty void. I smelt the unforgettable smell of fresh blood not too far from me, and I couldn't help but run to it with a blood thirsty look. I saw a poor thirteen year old handing by a necklace of hope, with handy work that no bear could have caused. I was filled with an overwhelming sense of hunger as I looked at the dead body, and I just say in. I took chunk after chunk of their delectable flesh, eating it like it was the best thing I have ever tasted. Their blood began to coat my claws as I ate their heart in two bites like an apple. Then I reached their stomach. It was still warm in my hand as I cupped it like a fresh cup of black tea. I carefully cut it out and heald one end closed, and drank the acid out of the other. It was the best thing I had ever tasted, it was impossible to describe with any word that was in the dictionary. My wolf ears stood up on ends as I heard someone coming, as sone as I figured out the source, I ran for the hills. Now with a full stomach, I could run so much farther, so much faster. It was incredible how one human body could fill up a wolf, human, thing. As I left, I smelt the same being from my last break out again, and I realized that I couldn't smell anything but what I was feasting on earlier. If I wasn't careful, I could get ambushed while in the middle of eating, or even killed. By some very dumb luck, I hadn't managed to get a single drop of blood on my lab outfit, so I didn't look like I had just murdered an army of humans. I briefly managed to wash myself up at a small creek that I found in the forest, before getting caught by the K.E.M. workers again and their weird subject guards. I never understood the guards, after all they looked just like Lab subjects just like Sam, Triple Nine, and the rest of the children that were apart of the lab, yet they fully obaied the Workers like mindless puppets. They had the most dull, empty look in their blank eyes, and they didn't even seem to speak.
Once back in the lab, one of the goggled eyed warden like Guards barked at me,
"Your next experiment is tomorrow, little 696, *do not try to get out of this one, or your heart will be on a platter,"
"Kiddo, just give up already, you know that even if we manage to make it out of here alive, there is no place for us in the human world, we don't belong anywhere," Sammy sighed, "Need a hand?"
"Yeah, thanks... Hey, if we were able to leave, and fit into the real world, what would you go by and where would you work?"
"I'd go by Samantha, and I think I would work in a cáfe in the city as a waitress, or a baker, you Triple Nine?"
"Sam as you Sam, but I'd go by Mike, what about you bucko?"
"I'd be working with you, probably working with the coffee machine, since I have no taste for the stuff,"
"You don't like coffee? I don't know about you, but I can hardly wake up without it, (even if this place's coffee taste like like eating fall leaves,)"
"Coffee just makes me jumpy and bitter, I much prefer black tea,"
I had only just noticed that I was now a little under Triple Nine's height, and I wondered how the he'll did I gain a foot in under two weeks.
The next day the took me out of the cell at a fortnight to noon, and I was being dragged by my wrist by my father, who was unrecognizable to me at this point. He threw me into another blinding white room that had a dark, heavy, steel table with five leather straps on it. Whatever was about to happen, I wanted none of it. I try to sleep for the door, but the one stupid subject guard had to go ahead and trip me, make me fall hard to the ground.
"We can do this the easy way, or the hard way, what will it be 696?"
"I'd rather not do this at all prick, the hard way,"
I had tried to get off the ground, but my father grabbed me by the wrist and pinned me back onto the ground in one swift movement.
"Wrong answer, 014, please get 696 ready for operation,"
"Yes sir, of course,"
014 grabbed me by the neck as my father let go of my cracked wrist, and slammed me into the table. With snake like tentacles, she closed down the laches one by one. I had tried to cut them so she couldn't, but found that it was pointless as they regenerated faster then I could run. I was struggling against the restraints, and staring right at the one off scientist in the room, well out of all the ones that took pleasure in tormenting children. They had one translucent eye that on one seemed to want to point out, or rather they didn't want to.
"WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO TO ME?"
"Make you so much better,"
My father put an old gas mask over my mouth and nose, and my vision blurred as U was forced to inhale the sleep gas. My body became numb, but I wasn't all the way out cold.
"Miss Scalpel, please get the metal bones,"
"Why of course sir, right way, this is going to be so~ much fun,"
She cut my left leg open wide, blood starting to pour out by the seams, and one by one, replaced every bone in my leg with metal replicas. They flung me back into my cell like I was a rag doll, and closed the door as I staggered to get up.
"Ooo~ so they started to replace the bones in your body? I hate to break it to you kiddo, but it only gets worse from here, good luck when they do it to your skull,"
"(There going to do it to my head?!)"
Over the course of the next decade or so they did just that, replace every bone in my body with metal replicas, expect my teeth by some dumb luck. I was surprised that I've been become paralyzed from Miss scalpel with her crazy mind set and uncleaned scalpels. Around this time I forgot my name with Mina, I just accepted the fact that I was going to be going by 6 9 6 now, and any memory of my name being Mina, was replaced with my subject name. I broke out almost every single day, sometimes it was organized, in large groups, other times it was disheveled, chaos, and just me, myself, and I. Most of the time, my break outs had turned from being hard, to straight up annoying.
One of my break outs was especially successful. I had managed to steal a bottle of scented oil from one of the scientist office desk, and I poured it into my feet so they couldn't pick up my scent. I had not thought it entirely through however, because now I couldn't smell anything else either. I had managed to sprit about fifty miles before some playboy slammed me into the nearest tree, almost making my spine rip through my skin like a knife. He was wearing black pants, a black fedora, and a long black jacket that went past his knees, and clearly lacked a shirt. His toothy grin was sickening to me, but I knew I had to deal with his bullshit for the time being. Despite the strong smell of mint lingering around me in a thick cloud, I could smell the cheap colone looming around him, along with red wine and stake in his breath. I could hear that in the distance, the scientist were quickly approaching us, I had to make this short and sweet.
"What do you want from me? (Jackass)"
"Why you of course, what else would I want from a woman as lovely as yourself?"
He had put his hand right up against the front of my neck as he tilted my head up, and this guy was giving more mixed signals then a broken traffic light.
"(So he's this type of person, how am I not surprised?) I'd stay away from me if I were you, (bitch)"
"How come sweetheart?"
While he was licking his lips with his long, black tongue, I had managed to sneak my foot behind his slender ankle as I gave him a devilish grin right back at him.
"Because I am not the type of person who sit stills and looks pretty,"
I had knocked him to the ground with one hard sweep and bolted for the hills yet again. I could hear his light, soft laugher as I made him lose sight of me. I stopped hard in my tracks as something came to my mind.
"(I could have used that sucker, if I had just played along with his little game, and I would have been home free, GOD DAMN IT!)"
And that's how I got captured for the ten thousandth time.
"Got captured again kiddo?"
"Shut up Sammy,"
"Kiddo, you should quit while your life is ahead of you, I mean it isn't so bad in here, I mean we have food, water, shelter, and even our own trade system,"
"But being free is the best- wait, what do you mean?"
"Oh that's right, I haven't told you, once you turn eighteen, you can ask some of the, nicer, scientists if you can join, you can learn how to make food, wines, beer, and pop, and even trade with the other floors for their goods,"
"Is that where Triple Nine goes every week?!"
"Yup, she makes her famous Cinnamon Butterscotch Pies, everyone wants to trade for a slice of that,"
"Why didn't you tell me that we have a trade system?!"
"To tell the truth, I didn't think you'd make it this far kiddo, I mean you have broken out 28 times this month alone, and you keep playing with fire, and you haven't returned once with news of any place where we can fit in, just give it up kid,"
"Why would I give up being free?! It's the best feeling in the world, the breeze in my hair, the grass beneath my feet, all with the sky to be my guild,"
"To what? We can't see stars through the trees, even if we did find a place that would take freak shows like us in, and we were content with where we live, they would always be after us,"
"Hey Sam, if you to be able to see one thing before you died, what would it be?"
".......I think I'd like to look at stars, just one last time, once in a blue moon, all the lights in the world would black out for one week, and all the stars in the night sky could be seen back in my home world, and you Savaya?"
"I think I'd just like to see someone on the outside of this lab that actually give heck if we die or not, that's all that I really want, is that so wrong?"
"No, kiddo, no it isn't, look, I'm sorry about how I just acted, I just find it foolish that you keep trying to find a solution that could kill you, and I don't want to see yourself get killed trying to find our happiness, and to help our dreams that we make come to life,"
"It's fine sis, we'll get through this somehow,"
Sammy's eyes began to water as she hugged me, I hugged her back with tears shooting out of my eyes, and we fell asleep like that.
The next morning I was assigned to get another DNA inject, so I just walked into the DNA input room like nothing was wrong.
"Yeah, yeah," I sarcastically sneered, "I know the drill, stick the needle in my arm, push the valve and wait,"
I just did as expected, and I felt my vision somehow sharpen even more with my reflexes. My ears and tail became a slinky in flexibility. I felt as my claws even changed, although I didn't dare take then out now, I didn't want them trying to knock me out yet again. I clambered back to my cell so I could get a better look at my new claws, I was about to extent the ones in my hands and feet when I realized something, they had switched my cell mates. Sammy and Triple Nine were replaced by two very, pur-verted men, and one scary cat female.
"Well, well, well~, look at what the cat dragged in~, a new toy for us to play with," A black panther hissed as he wrapped his tail around my back, "But I ney-ver thought that they'd make our next toy out of such, high quality material, don't cha agree?"
"Why yes, but, she'll make due for our little game, she'll be a pur-fect new toy to go with little miss alley," the white snow leopard snickered as he licked his chapped lips with his sandpaper tongue,
"(AM I A FUCKING HOUSE CAT?! and what do they mean by-)"
....and that was the first of many, many rapes I have experienced. They did it for about three weeks to both me, and the other female in the cell. She was malnourished, and beaten to a pulp. One of her neco ears had been torn off, she was blind in one eye like me, they even had managed to de-claw her. I knew I had to get out of there, so one day... I SNAPPED. I set out all of my claws, and sliced through them like warm butter. Now that I was part neco and lycon, my claws were sharper then the sharpest knife. I ripped those two clean in half, breaking their spine like a kit-kat bar. Their screams were blood curdling, so I understand why Kitty was so scared of me.
"Don't worry Kitty, I have some Mercy,"
I started to feast on their nice, juicy flesh, the taste kept me going as everyone was staring at me like I was a six leggied dog. I have to admit, being a cannibal is really fun, how the blood gushes out, how the meal taste, and how that everyone comes towards you so you get unlimited supply of food. Blood soaked my clothing, stained my skin a sunburn red, and sprayed into my hair, and the stomach acid kept pouring into my mouth. They kept coming to me, trying to contain me, but I kept killing them one after another like it was nothing. Even dear old mother got a hard blow to the chest, and I guess that made father finally speak up,
"MINA, WHAT IN THE NAME OF GOD IS WRONG WITH YOU?! YOU'VE KILLED TWENTY PEOPLE, AND HARMED TEN MORE!!"
"Who's Mina? You've made it clear that I am subject 696 father, and you are just are a sick-"
"YOU'RE THE SICK ONE HERE, YOU ARE A FREAKING MONSTER,"
"You didn't let me finish father, as always, I was just going to say that you are a cruel, sick, baster, and I wish that you were never my father, you sent your only child to hell for something that I couldn't help,"
That, I could tell, did some damage to him, but he didn't seem phased by what I said. I was going to kill them all, but they manged to tranquilize me and make me black out.
When I woke, I saw I was in a padded cell only as wide as two of my armspands in all directions, with a single window barred with thick rods of steel. Shackles bounded me to my bed that was in the back corner, and the only company I had was a familiar voice shouting in my head,
"(Wait what, who's there?) (Bucko it's me, Triple Nine, while you were out they transplanted apart of your soul into me, and apart of mine into you, not only did we both lash out at the same time, but they put me in a coma,) (then why am I not out?) (Blame your mother, she couldn't bare see 'her baby be put to sleep,') (Of course, so where am I?) (you're in solitary confinement section one, floor seven, but because of what you do or say, you still could end up back in the state I'm in,) (Okay, got it, can I talk to you later?) (Of course, I'll hear from you later,)"

2020.06.18 23:39 Lindel_QC_sv Le QÉS (parti prov. QC Etat Souv.) update: St-Jean 2020 annulee, petit docu-film a venir

QC sans autorisation d'engendrer revenus / depenses / prets / bourses etc. et devait aller bientot a > full parti pol. avec verificatrice ou -teur financier(e?) pis toute le tra-la-la-la-la mais il est donc en cool-down > redevenu simple projet qui va culminer en un film gratuit bien sur et qui ne vas pas recolter 0$ pour nous (l'executif / fondateurs du QÉS), c'est-a-dire disons sur YouTube le account on va mettre dessus ne sera pas monetized, genre ne l'a pas ete et ne le sera jamais. Si jamais y a des gens ($$ tse avec du pognon plein l'cul $$) qui essayent de nous faire chier, alors on va sortir les mesures lourdes, c'est-a-dire on va vendre a Netflix ou wtv mais qui n'est pas du QC (genre soit USA ou international ou ben fuck YES l'office National du film du Canada!) la version entiere qui va etre beeeeeeeennnnnnnnnnnnn moins douce que la version YouTube ou ben autres reseaux de distribution et de hosting de fichiers video, genre ca va etre 16+, au lieu de familial comme sur YT. Ca veut dire que si tu veux t'attaquer au Québec État Souverain vu que tu as pas aime qu'on te dise que t'es un crisse de niaiseux (ou surement pire lols) et ce avec fondements clair et certains; ben ou va t'en donner plus de confirmations, genre la version Director's Cut du film va sortir.

Chef-lieu Ahuntsic / Cartierville reste ainsi que chef-lieu MTL "Ouest" qui reste. La division du secret crypto. de St-Jerome est tombee au combat, c'est-a-dire que les mesures d'urgence exceptionnelles en cas de menace de l'integrite corporelle de membre(s) de l'executif ont ete deployees. Cela veut dire: nous n'avons pas ete infiltre ou compromis, mais la division a ete self-destruct. Toutes cles ont ete detruites de maniere absolue.

Le Bloc est essen-fuckin-ciel, bande de caves, meme le fucking QÉS qu'on est prepare en tabarnac de tabernacle! on sait que c'est essentiel pis on aura du trouble en osti si on a pas un Bloc fort, si tous les partis et organismes souverainistes ne font pas bloc pour le Bloc au federal. Rien que des mauviettes. La majorite des souverainistes y realisent pas ce qui est arrive... y realisent pas que le PQ est mort et qu'il ne pourra cette fois revenir. Je regarde la lettre que y m'ont envoye quand j'etais en secondaire 4 je crois, tse quand on apprend un peu sur le QC pis y a un test a la fin de l'annee pis si tu avais une note parfaite, genre 100%, la SSJB y te disent: respect mon boy / ma fille.

2020.03.21 23:18 racecarart I read the FE4 manga and I think you should too

(This post is written with the assumption that you’ve played FE4 or know the story of it. I’m going to mark spoilers all the same)
I’m sure most of us have heard of the FE4 manga, right? It’s a direct adaptation of Genealogy of the Holy War, and it was first serialized in 1999, concluding in 2001. My first exposure to it was some years ago in a post on this subreddit. Someone had taken some of the panels and pointed out how big the characters’ hands were, and the comments were filled with people laughing about how dated the art style was. Not too long after that, someone shared some pages regarding Eldigan and Lachesis’s relationship and how extremely inappropriate it was. The comments here were all about how the FE4 manga was a product of its genre, pandering to seinen romance tropes that were popular at the time. So, with this knowledge under my belt, I wrote it off.
Earlier this month, I hit a lull between other comic series I was reading. Since FE4 has been on my mind lately, I thought hey, why not give this dated pandery crap a shot. It’s not too long, I can probably get through it in a couple of weeks or less, which is faster than the time it would take for me to replay FE4 instead.
And...yeah, this art style is pretty dated. But it’s also oddly...compelling? There’s always a good flow of motion in the characters, and sometimes the compositions catch me off guard with how easy and pleasant they are to read. Hell, look at the first page. Reading right-to-left draws your eye along the random citizens discussing the situation, giving you an idea of what’s going on in the story, and once you’re at the bottom of the page, the perspective draws your eye up and to the left to see Sigurd’s majestic form. Moving forward, we get the scene of Midayle protecting Adean at Jugby, then Arvis and Azelle acting like real siblings, Lex playfully teasing Azelle, Sigurd being a competent and heroic badass, Quan being cool as a cucumber (Quancumber?), Ethlyn being adorable, and…
...shit, is this manga actually good?
I wasn’t expecting to experience all these characters I already loved being portrayed in such a personal and compelling light. Nearly everyone is spot-on accurate for their personality in the game, and seeing them more fleshed out and interacting with each other is a treat I didn’t think I would experience prior to a potential remake of FE4. Hell, I would argue that several characters are imrproved from FE4. Let me go down a list just off the top of my head:
Back on the note of the art style, I wanna defend this sucker for a bit. Oosawa really knows how to do some dramatic reveals through the use of minimalist and clean linework. Take this page for example. Quan hurls a javelin at a bandit to save Alec. There could have been a bunch of action lines and effects, but only using the kanji onomatopoeia and a spurt of blood makes this far more impactful to me than if it was all blown up and dramatic. And this series is full of great moments of drama through minimalism. I’m not going to share all of them since I want you to experience them yourself, but as for me, when this artwork is good, it is really good.
There is one big, big problem with the series, and I can’t recommend it without making sure you’re aware of this problem: Eldigan. For background, in the game, Eldigan is not shown to reciprocate his half-sister Lachesis’s romantic feelings for him. In this manga, he does, and he is a worse character for it. Since he’s five years older than Lach and first met her when she was twelve, his entire side of things feels extremely predatory and completely kills any sympathy he may have garnered for his actions. I’m warning you all of this not just because it’s gross, but because I could see someone who had been a victim of abuse from an older sibling have a very bad reaction to seeing someone like their abuser portrayed in a sympathetic light. If you do have a history of abuse, I would strongly recommend you not read this. For everyone else, use your better judgment and stay away or skim those pages if you don’t feel comfortable with this. For me personally, I found the good from the rest of the series to outweigh the sheer yuck from the tiny bits of Eldigan in the comic, so please, use your discretion if you decide to read it.
On a much less serious note, I do have some other criticisms of it. Sigurd’s playful teasing of Deirdre is not as cute as the author thinks it is, and some of his early actions are very questionable in regards to her. Sylvia is accurate to her character in game, meaning she’s really fuckin annoying. I don’t really like the way the artist designs weapons, with Missiletainn getting the worst treatment imo. There’s a noticeable dip in quality after the timeskip, both in art and writing - I’m not sure if the author was running out of time to tell the story, but it feels like the series takes its sweet time with everything up to the end of Battle of Belhalla, then tries to burn through the second half of the game as quickly as possible.
Okay, serious stuff over, I wanna take a moment and just gush over some of the big spoilers because WOW I love how this series handles them.
Despite my distaste for their relationship as a whole, Lachesis’s character arc is phenomenal. She’s already responsible and capable in times of trouble, but seeing her wracked with grief and being brought out of her despair by Finn, the ultimate self-sacrificing character is so good. So fucking good. Tying that into the gameplay by having her deciding to become a Master Knight as a sign of her development is a stroke of genius. Although, like, why did her and Finn fuck on a hard stone floor?? That’s probably bad for Lach’s back.
Literally all of the Yied Massacre. My god. Changing it so that Ethlyn was fully intending to return with Altena completely redeems her in my eyes, but the additional scene of her standing her ground to protect her child, knowing it may be her last act? Bad-fuckin’-ass, man. And then she opts to take her own life rather than be used as leverage against the man she loves! God damn, this woman is amazing, I love her so much, I hope we get moments like this in a remake.
The Battle of Belhalla. I didn’t think this could be more dramatic and tragic than it already was, but the way they expanded upon it, building upon each moment and upping the tension and tragedy with each page...god. It’s so good. The final moment of Sigurd being himself and offering friendship to Arvis, only for the next page to reveal that Arvis reduced him to ash in seconds… Perfect. Read this manga if only for this scene.
Post-timeskip Dew is hot and I am uncomfortable with it.
Beyond all of this, beyond how faithful and fantastic this is as an adaptation, I just want more people to know this exists because of how wild its existence is. It’s such a trip to read a series with violence, betrayal, sex, nudity, incest, suicide, self-harm, child sacrifices, and religious genocide, and see a big ol’ Nintendo seal of approval at every chapter break. If you’re a youtuber looking for material, this series is begging for a video about it, maybe with a caption like, “The Dark OFFICIAL NINTENDO Manga You Never Knew Existed,” with a thumbnail that has “Nintendo and SEX?!!” in big letters on it. You can thank me for the adsense later.
TL;DR: The FE4 manga is actually good, please read it, unless you’re really not okay with creepy older brother characters.
Edit: Totally forgot to plug myself, here's a link to the Twitter thread of my reactions. Spoilers are not marked, but it does have some of those panels I really liked if you're curious about those.

2019.12.29 12:17 TimFietst The big fat write-up of women's cycling in 2019, part 1

Hello pelotonians!
Another brilliant year has come to an end. A year full of alienesque attacks, epic battles and brilliant races. More and more fans have joined in on the fun, which is awesome. It's also true that 2019 was by far the year with the most live broadcasts of women's races. More about that later.
I'll be looking back on the past season in two posts, this being the first. I'd like to do some blatant self-promotion first. Go and follow me on Twitter for more women's cycling. It's not only news, reports and race videos that I share, which you'd expect from a journalist who focuses on women's cycling, you can also expect a lot of GIFs. Like the ones in this thread. What's not to like?!

Twenty years later, a journey to Sopranos Land, New Jersey

Two decades after the most influential television show of all time made its debut, the gigantic and unprecedented and just plain bizarre SopranosCon attempted to answer for the HBO series’ immense and complicated legacy
The Globe and Mail
BARRY HERTZ SECAUCUS, N.J. PUBLISHED NOVEMBER 30, 2019 UPDATED DECEMBER 2, 2019
Twenty years ago, Emil Kolar died so that The Sopranos could live. The low-level Czech criminal was the first character to be killed onscreen in the landmark HBO series – shot four times in the back of the head by budding mobster Christopher Moltisanti, the violence interspersed with close-up flashes of gangster poseurs Humphrey Bogart, Dean Martin and Edward G. Robinson – and his unexpected, idiosyncratically executed murder was the first sign that writer-director David Chase’s series was not going to be like the mafia entertainment of decades past. Nor was the show – a mix of intense drama and outrageous comedy, of pop-culture allusions and philosophical meditations – going to be like anything else ever made for television.
Later in that pilot episode, which premiered Jan. 10, 1999, Emil Kolar was buried deep in the Meadowlands of New Jersey. And two decades later, it was in the Meadowlands where Emil Kolar and every other ghost of The Sopranos was resurrected. At least for a weekend.
At the tail end of November, about 12,500 people gathered at the Meadowlands Exposition Centre for the first-ever SopranosCon, a supersized tribute to the series about a mob boss, his psychiatrist, his family, and his “Family.” Over the course of two days, SopranosCon attendees were treated to autograph and panel sessions featuring 55 cast members, from the most famous and prominent (Dominic “Uncle Junior” Chianese, Tony “Paulie Walnuts” Sirico) to the most obscure (Mike “Jimmy Bones” Memphis, Jayson “Coffeehouse Manager” Ward Williams).
There were vendors selling ziti, gabagool, zeppole and all manner of fried foodstuffs familiar to the Sopranos household. A maze replicated the experience of being lost in Pine Barrens, the setting of the darkly funny fan-favourite episode of the same name, complete with abandoned van and ketchup packets. There were meticulous recreations of Dr. Melfi’s psychiatric office, the Bada Bing strip club, the Holsten’s restaurant booth where the Soprano family enjoyed a last supper of Cokes and onion rings.
Also: trivia contests. Cannoli-eating contests. Costume contests (Chicago’s Dylan DeVito’s Artie Bucco getup, which came equipped with arugula seeds “smuggled all the way from Italy in my shaving kit!” narrowly beat 14-month-old Brooks Lach of Catham, N.J., whose parents dressed him as a pint-sized Uncle Junior). Roped off in the centre of the floor was the gleaming white Cadillac Escalade that Tony Soprano used to zip around New Jersey. There was stand-up comedy from Tony “Larry Boy Barese” Darrow, whose jokes opened along the lines of, “So this Polish guy goes to the doctor ...” There was a set from the British rock band Alabama 3, performing the show’s opening-credits song Woke Up This Morning for the first time in America in a decade. Plus Tony Soprano sneakers. Tony Soprano T-shirts. Tony Soprano coffee mugs. Tony Soprano paintings. Tony Soprano tattoos, US$100 a pop. And Goldee, an honest-to-goodness racehorse who was referred to throughout the weekend only by his onscreen moniker, Pie-O-My.
Looming over all this was the spectre of James Gandolfini, the actor whose tremendous presence so defined the shape and weight of The Sopranosthat fans still cannot quite accept that the man is no longer of this world. To help remind everyone at SopranosCon of this disheartening fact, a towering photographic mosaic of Gandolfini, composed out of thousands of images of Tony Soprano in action, stood in the middle of the convention floor. Any time a panelist hopped onto the event’s main stage, they were greeted by Gandolfini’s penetrating gaze from on high. (“As everybody here will tell you, he was the sweetest and most generous man, and oh god, he’s watching over us now, his eyes right over there,” exclaimed Kathrine “Charmaine Bucco” Narducci.)
But after two days wading through SopranosCon – motto: “For the Fans, By the Fans” – it was difficult to discern the line between irony and sincerity. As envisioned by Chase and his collaborators over the course of seven seasons, The Sopranos was not exactly a loving ode to Italian-American life. There was a fondness for the importance of family and for certain traditions, and a real appreciation of cultural history, but the series was primarily a vicious satire – a sharp and subversive deconstruction of the American Dream and the depths we have all sunk to in order to achieve it. Its heroes were sociopaths. Its themes were deeply depressing. It was also, in direct opposition to most popular entertainment today, explicitly against the notion of fan-service.
You wanted more internecine mob warfare? Chase would give you domestic drama instead. You wanted to know what happened to that Russian who disappeared in Pine Barrens? Too bad. Does Tony live or die? The series finale offers no answer. Yet here were 10,000 superfans who travelled from across the world – as far as Amsterdam – to celebrate the most fan-reticent of series.
What would Tony say?
LEAVE THE GUN, TAKE THE GABAGOOL
SopranosCon was the brainchild of three Tony diehards: Rhode Island’s Michael Mota, Long Island’s Joe Fama, and Baltimore’s Danny Trader. The trio connected earlier this year after Mota, a self-described “internationally renowned entrepreneur*”*who’s watched the entire series about 25 times through, shared images online of a few small-scale Sopranos events he’d previously organized.
Very quickly, the trio got to work putting together an unprecedented $400,000 super-con to mark the series’ 20th anniversary – and timed to catch the buzz of Chase and director Alan Taylor’s forthcoming prequel movie, The Many Saints of Newark, which will be released in September, 2020.
“We all have one passion: The Sopranos. And I said, ‘Let’s go big. Let’s make magic happen,’” Mota said the evening before the convention opened. “I’ve been dreaming of this for a long time.” That dream might have died as quick and ugly a death as Mikey Palmice, Ralph Cifaretto, Phil Leotardo, or any number of dearly departed Sopranos mafiosos were if not for Mota’s friend Federico Castelluccio, who played Tony’s ponytailed henchman Furio Giunta.
“I’d done some stuff with Michael over the years and after he told me the idea, I said, ‘I’ll reach out to whoever you want me to,’” said Castelluccio. “In the beginning, it was slow going. The cast wanted to know if this was real. I told everyone that Michael and these guys are legit – and that they put some of us in the series to shame with how much they know. Vincent Pastore [Big Pussy] was the first one to join, and from there people started signing on.”
While SopranosCon was missing several key players – including Michael “Christopher Moltisanti” Imperioli, Lorraine “Dr. Melfi” Bracco, Edie “Carmela Soprano” Falco, Aida “Janice Soprano” Turturro, and Steve “Tony Blundetto” Buscemi – the event secured two essential endorsements: A statement from Chase (“It’s fantastic to see such support for the show and I hope everyone has a wonderful time”), and a visit from Deborah Lin, Gandolfini’s widow. (HBO was not involved, but was invited to the event, according to Mota; organizers were careful to not infringe on any of the network’s trademarks, though it’s unclear how WarnerMedia executives might’ve reacted to one of the con’s vendors selling bootleg Blu-rays of recent blockbusters.)
Attendees, some of whom paid as low as US$50 to attend a single day and some as high as US$2,500-plus for weekend packages (which included access to the “VIP after-party” at the Satin Dolls strip club, a.k.a. the original Bada Bing, via a fleet of school buses), didn’t seem to mind any cast absences. Both days featured long, excitable lines snaking around the convention floor for Sirico, David “Richie Aprile” Proval, Drea “Adriana La Cerva” de Matteo, Vincent “Johnny Sack” Curatola, and, most of all, Chianese, beloved for his performance as the cranky boss-in-name-only of New Jersey.
“This is a testament to the beautiful marriage between David’s words and the actors’ performances,” said Chianese, who flew in from his home in London to sign autographs, pose for photos, and perform classic Neapolitan songs for the crowd. “People remember the show as a memory that kept their families together every Sunday night, and being a part of that makes me happy. Michael, Joey and Danny, they’re creating memories here.”
The sheer number of cast members, and one horse, helped deflect from the many moments that the event edged into Fyre Festivallike territory: promised “VIP” dinners vanished quickly on Saturday night, there were few ATMs on-site, panel discussions were routinely delayed, and crowd control was a fantasy. (Mota sent attendees a defensive e-mail the day after SopranosCon closed, writing that “The reality is it’s IMPOSSIBLE to have met everyone, it’s IMPOSSIBLE to talk to every cast member and it was IMPOSSIBLE to have a sit-down dinner ... In life, I personally have learned you can’t make everyone happy. Especially at this time in history, it is harder and harder to do so.” Asked by The Globe if the event was financially successful, Mota responded only that, “We are still calculating, but we won’t lose money.”)
And, as with any commemoration of a piece of entertainment two decades removed from the air, there was more than a fleeting wisp of sadness to the weekend. For many of the actors attending, The Sopranos was the peak. Some are still working steadily, but others are selling marinara sauce ($39.95 for an autographed bottle of Vinny Pastore’s Italian Sauce) and cookbooks (Shut Up and Eat! by the late Tony “Carmine Lupertazzi” Lip was hawked by his sons Frank and Nick “Real-Life Oscar-winning Writer of Green Book” Vallelonga).
There was an endearing quality to the weekend’s sloppiness – one panel discussion between long-time friends Pastore and Narducci morphed into an informal chat featuring Proval and Curatola, who just happened to be hanging around – but also a lingering melancholy that, as Tony once told Dr. Melfi, we came in at the end. That the best is over.
Or maybe, as Dr. Melfi might then tell Tony, sometimes a celebration is just a celebration.
“I don’t care about the autographs, I just want to see these guys and thank them,” said Vincent Randazzo, a produce-industry professional who travelled in from upstate New York with his best friend from college, actor Taylor Gleeson. “You think you’re the only the one who cares about the show, and then you see the line out the door here. And you try to sell the show to your friends, your girlfriend, your family ... so when you meet someone who gets it, you’re instantly friends.”
There is something about the show that engenders this kind of supremely devoted audience – something that today’s prestige television, which wouldn’t exist were it not for The Sopranos, doesn’t inspire.
The Sopranos has bad episodes. But what it reached for was a lot higher. It has this raw, visceral energy that other shows don’t have. An ambition and danger,” said Gleeson. “Is anyone going to go to a Breaking Bad convention in 20 years?”
(Game of Thrones, the only series that could reasonably lay a claim to making as big a cultural impact post-Sopranos, was on the receiving end of a wealth of insults over the weekend. “Everyone knows that Carmela was the original mother of dragons!” Narducci exclaimed at one point.)
The crowd was also surprisingly mixed in age. Jess Lenza, 27, and her sister Sam, 26, of Pennsylvania certainly weren’t old enough to watch the show during its original HBO run – they discovered the series via streaming. “It’s timeless, and it’s easy to see why people are still obsessed with it,” said Jess, who’s seen the show seven times over. “I find new ideas in it every time.”
“I’ve developed this theory on the life-cycle of popular culture,” Matt Zoller Seitz, television critic for New York magazine and co-author with Alan Sepinwall of The Sopranos Sessions, told the con’s audience during a Saturday afternoon panel. “Ten years after a show comes out, it feels dated. Twenty years after, it’s a period piece. The show came on and is set at the end of the 20th century, and yet the things it’s talking about haven’t changed at all. There’s a concern about waste, about everybody buying too much, eating too much – the garbage and sewage that’s taking over our world. It’s aged extremely well.”
DON’T STOP BELIEVIN’
Seeking respite from the throngs of men (and the occasional woman) in Adidas track suits, I left SopranosCon on its second day to make a private pilgrimage to Holsten’s, the wood-panelled ice cream shop and diner in nearby Bloomfield, where Tony may or may not have been killed in the series’ final seconds.
A corner booth, jukebox set to Journey’s Don’t Stop Believin', is marked as permanently “reserved” for the Soprano family. My waitress said she never watched the series, but is accustomed to handling the obsessive fans and twice-a-week tour buses that come rolling down Broad Street.
I popped a few onion rings into my mouth – “best in the state,” according to Tony, and I have no reason to doubt him – and thought about Gandolfini, Chase, and why I’ve been compelled to watch the show over and over (10 full-series revisits, a number I thought was abnormally high until this weekend). It is easy to look back at The Sopranos and appreciate its influence over how television works and looks today, about how the current Peak TV boom and its attendant streaming war owes a blood debt to David Chase and company. But there was more, too – a feeling that can’t be captured on a convention floor or in a costume contest or in a queue for selfies. A feeling that the world may never see another creation as complex, compelling and frightening as Tony Soprano.
In the washroom of Holsten’s – the same washroom that actor Paolo “Man in Members Only Jacket” Colandrea curiously entered moments before The Sopranos forever cut to black; and yes, Colandrea was at the convention, too – I noticed a small scrawling of graffiti on the wall. “Miss you, T. Soprano,” it read. “He lives on.”

2019.11.21 16:44 play_it_safe [OFFER] Take Uber/Lyft ride, I'll pay you $3 for it AND you get $5 x 2 bonus from them, no minimum cashout amount (Freebird app)

US only, need debit card to cash out to (no minimum withdrawal), need to sign in to CC/debit account and pay with that card
You'll pay for first ride out of pocket, and get $5 referral credit on first ride (and $3 from me) and then another $5 on second ride (and can probably get promo code to apply for second one)
Freebird is essentially a ridesharing (Uber mostly, now Lyft, too) cashback app that acts like a portal to Uber and Lyft, much like eBates in a way. This is all guaranteed to work with Uber, so I'm sticking with that.
This is a bit involved but well worth it and very straightforward. Exact instructions follow.
1) Download Freebird app (NOT Freebirds, the burrito place!) by clicking the follwing link: https://my.fbird.co/G30ebkDrzT
2) Make an account by linking your Uber account, and then go to Profile>Promo Codes in Freebird app and enter the referral code p96b1 (just in case it didn't apply through using the above link).
PM me at this point with your first name and I will confirm for you that your signup is indeed tied to my referal for the $5 x 2 from the app later on
3) Go to Profile>Payment Methods to link the CC/debit card you use for your regular Uber app. They must be the same. Now you're all set up! You can take the ride whenever you want after this.
4) When you're ready to take your ride, do the following:
Book a ride using above payment method through the Freebird app, not through Uber app! It says to a movie theater but can be anywhere.
After the ride is complete, you'll get a $5 referral bonus and you can cash it out with no minimum withdrawal required to a debit card.
5) PM me the name you sent me after Step 2 and your Paypal email. If it checks out, I'll send $3 to your PayPal. It may take me up to an hour or so to verify get you the funds -- I'm only checking my reddit periodically! So don't freak out if I don't respond immediately
6) Take the second ride if you want. I won't be paying anything for this one, but the second one will get you another $5 referral promo and before taking the ride, you should put in the codes at the end of this post to see if one works
Here is how the screen should look with promo code applied; make sure promo code you want to use shows.
If you have more than one phone numbeUber account, I'll pay out for each time you do it.
If you have any questions at all, PM or comment, and also let me know if my instructions are uncleaneed revising.
Photo proof of how the promo codes load and cash out
Previous times I ran this offer with payout confirmations there too: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
My rep profile
And my GCExchange profile
PROMO codes to try right now AFTER first ride with my referral code are V2DEA, GO2TEN, 3TENBACK, and URBDAY1 (app will tell you if they do or don't when you enter them on the promo code screen).

2019.11.18 05:09 play_it_safe [OFFER] Take Uber/Lyft ride, I'll pay you $3 for it AND you get $5 x 2 bonus from them, no minimum cashout amount (Freebird app)

US only, need debit card to cash out to (no minimum withdrawal), need to sign in to CC/debit account and pay with that card
You'll pay for first ride out of pocket, and get $5 referral credit on first ride (and $3 from me) and then another $5 on second ride (and can probably get promo code to apply for second one)
Freebird is essentially a ridesharing (Uber mostly, now Lyft, too) cashback app that acts like a portal to Uber and Lyft, much like eBates in a way. This is all guaranteed to work with Uber, so I'm sticking with that.
This is a bit involved but well worth it and very straightforward. Exact instructions follow.
1) Download Freebird app (NOT Freebirds, the burrito place!) by clicking the follwing link: https://my.fbird.co/G30ebkDrzT
2) Make an account by linking your Uber account, and then go to Profile>Promo Codes in Freebird app and enter the referral code p96b1 (just in case it didn't apply through using the above link).
PM me at this point with your first name and I will confirm for you that your signup is indeed tied to my referal for the $5 x 2 from the app later on
3) Go to Profile>Payment Methods to link the CC/debit card you use for your regular Uber app. They must be the same. Now you're all set up! You can take the ride whenever you want after this.
4) When you're ready to take your ride, do the following:
Book a ride using above payment method through the Freebird app, not through Uber app! It says to a movie theater but can be anywhere.
After the ride is complete, you'll get a $5 referral bonus and you can cash it out with no minimum withdrawal required to a debit card.
5) PM me the name you sent me after Step 2 and your Paypal email. If it checks out, I'll send $3 to your PayPal. It may take me up to an hour or so to verify get you the funds -- I'm only checking my reddit periodically! So don't freak out if I don't respond immediately
6) Take the second ride if you want. I won't be paying anything for this one, but the second one will get you another $5 referral promo and before taking the ride, you should put in the codes at the end of this post to see if one works
Here is how the screen should look with promo code applied; make sure promo code you want to use shows.
If you have more than one phone numbeUber account, I'll pay out for each time you do it.
If you have any questions at all, PM or comment, and also let me know if my instructions are uncleaneed revising.
Photo proof of how the promo codes load and cash out
Previous times I ran this offer with payout confirmations there too: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
My rep profile
And my GCExchange profile
PROMO codes to try right now AFTER first ride with my referral code are V2DEA, GO2TEN, 3TENBACK, and URBDAY1 (app will tell you if they do or don't when you enter them on the promo code screen).

However, you and Freebird Rides each retain the right to bring an individual action in small claims court and the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party's copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights.
The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") in accordance with the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the "AAA Rules") then in effect, except as modified by this Arbitration Agreement. The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org/arb_med or by calling the AAA at1-800-778-7879.
The parties agree that the arbitrator (“Arbitrator”), and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any disputes relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Arbitration Agreement, including any claim that all or any part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable. The Arbitrator shall also be responsible for determining all threshold arbitrability issues, including issues relating to whether theTerms are unconscionable or illusory and any defense to arbitration, including waiver, delay, laches, or estoppel.
Notwithstanding any choice of law or other provision in the Terms, the parties agree and acknowledge that this Arbitration Agreement evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce and that the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq.

The Arbitrator will render an award within the timeframe specified in the AAA Rules. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having competent jurisdiction to do so. The Arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant's individual claim. An Arbitrator’s decision shall be final and binding on all parties. An Arbitrator’s decision and judgment thereon shall have no precedential or collateral estoppel effect. The party that prevails in arbitration will be entitled to an award of attorneys' fees and expenses, to the extent allowedunder applicable law.
If any portion of this Arbitration Agreement is found to be unenforceable or unlawful for any reason, (1) the unenforceable or unlawful provision shall be severed from these Terms; (2) severance of the unenforceable or unlawful provision shall have no impact whatsoever on the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement or the parties’ ability to compel arbitration of any remaining claims on an individual basis pursuant to the Arbitration Agreement; and (3) to the extent that any claims must therefore proceed on a class, collective, consolidated, or representative basis, such claims must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not in arbitration, and the parties agree that litigation of those claims shall be stayed pending the outcome of any individual claims in arbitration.

Payment will be governed by your agreement with the rideshare operator and any applicable agreement with your credit card company.
You must link one or more of your credit or debit cards with Freebird Rides to enable Freebird Rides to validate you have made a purchase at the Member Business establishment (each a “Linked Card”).

If you have not created a Linked Card that matches the card you used to make a purchase at the Member Business within 45 days of such purchase, you will no longer be entitled to receive the Member Offer for that purchase.

2019.11.07 22:43 markcubelon Pure Verzweiflung

Hallo reddit de, ich hab heute von 3 Uhr nachts bis 18 Uhr geschlafen. Nichts gegessen, habe morgen früh Vorlesung und bin einfach depressiv. Ich befinde mich in einem Loch aus dem ich nicht herauskommen. Ich bin schon lange depressiv, kann es gut verstecken eigentlich, die Menschen denen ich davon erzähle interessiert es nicht ("lach doch einfach mal"). Ich lebe ungesund, mache keinen Sport, habe zwar Freunde aber hab keine Lust mehr mit ihnen was zu unternehmen.
Vor ein paar Wochen traf ich mich mit einer von einer dating Plattform. Wir haben uns super verstanden und hatten direkt Sex. Ich glaub ich hab mich direkt etwas verguckt - sie scheinbar auch. Dauernd Komplimente gemacht, wir sehen uns blabla
Jedenfalls hab ich vor paar Tagen gefragt ob wir diese Woche etwas unternehmen wollen. Ihre Antwort: "du ich bin hin und her gerissen" Eine halbe Stunde später, während ich diese Nachricht noch nicht einmal gelesen hatte "hab jemanden kennengelernt und ja das ist alles doof mimimi"
Also sie hat dann noch rumgejammert, wie blöd die Situation ja für sie sei.
Ich jedenfalls hab einfach nichts mehr geantwortet. Sie war so ein Strohhalm an dem ich mich versucht hatte festzuhalten. Es schien auch ziemlich aussichtsreich. Und jetzt fühle ich mich als hätte mich ein Bus überfahren. Diese ons Sache macht einen langfristig immer kaputter. Aber es ist manchmal das einzige was mich hochzieht. Versteht ihr?
Jetzt zur Lösung: ich weiß genau, dass ich gesünder leben müsste, Sport, in Vereine vllt aber sind wir mal ehrlich: warum sollte ich jetzt in einen Verein gehen obwohl ich absolut keine lust dazu habe unter menschen zu sein.
Ich bin ein depressives, sich selbstbemitleidendes Stück Müll.

2019.11.02 18:28 play_it_safe [OFFER] Take Uber/Lyft ride, I'll pay you $3 for it AND you get $5 x 2 bonus from them, no minimum cashout amount (Freebird app)

US only, need debit card to cash out to (no minimum withdrawal), need to sign in to CC/debit account and pay with that card
You'll pay for first ride out of pocket, and get $5 referral credit on first ride (and $3 from me) and then another $5 on second ride (and can probably get promo code to apply for second one)
Freebird is essentially a ridesharing (Uber mostly, now Lyft, too) cashback app that acts like a portal to Uber and Lyft, much like eBates in a way. This is all guaranteed to work with Uber, so I'm sticking with that.
This is a bit involved but well worth it and very straightforward. Exact instructions follow.
1) Download Freebird app (NOT Freebirds, the burrito place!) by clicking the follwing link: https://my.fbird.co/G30ebkDrzT
2) Make an account by linking your Uber account, and then go to Profile>Promo Codes in Freebird app and enter the referral code p96b1 (just in case it didn't apply through using the above link).
PM me at this point with your first name and I will confirm for you that your signup is indeed tied to my referal for the $5 x 2 from the app later on
3) Go to Profile>Payment Methods to link the CC/debit card you use for your regular Uber app. They must be the same. Now you're all set up! You can take the ride whenever you want after this.
4) When you're ready to take your ride, do the following:
Book a ride using above payment method through the Freebird app, not through Uber app! It says to a movie theater but can be anywhere.
After the ride is complete, you'll get a $5 referral bonus and you can cash it out with no minimum withdrawal required to a debit card.
5) PM me the name you sent me after Step 2 and your Paypal email. If it checks out, I'll send $3 to your PayPal. It may take me up to an hour or so to verify get you the funds -- I'm only checking my reddit periodically! So don't freak out if I don't respond immediately
6) Take the second ride if you want. I won't be paying anything for this one, but the second one will get you another $5 referral promo and before taking the ride, you should put in the codes at the end of this post to see if one works
Here is how the screen should look with promo code applied; make sure promo code you want to use shows.
If you have more than one phone numbeUber account, I'll pay out for each time you do it.
If you have any questions at all, PM or comment, and also let me know if my instructions are uncleaneed revising.
Photo proof of how the promo codes load and cash out
Previous times I ran this offer with payout confirmations there too: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
My rep profile
And my GCExchange profile
PROMO codes to try right now AFTER first ride with my referral code are V2DEA, GO2TEN, 3TENBACK, and URBDAY1 (app will tell you if they do or don't when you enter them on the promo code screen).

The party that prevails in arbitration will be entitled to an award of attorneys' fees and expenses, to the extent allowedunder applicable law.
If any portion of this Arbitration Agreement is found to be unenforceable or unlawful for any reason, (1) the unenforceable or unlawful provision shall be severed from these Terms; (2) severance of the unenforceable or unlawful provision shall have no impact whatsoever on the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement or the parties’ ability to compel arbitration of any remaining claims on an individual basis pursuant to the Arbitration Agreement; and (3) to the extent that any claims must therefore proceed on a class, collective, consolidated, or representative basis, such claims must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not in arbitration, and the parties agree that litigation of those claims shall be stayed pending the outcome of any individual claims in arbitration.

2019.10.21 14:56 play_it_safe [OFFER] Take Uber/Lyft ride, I'll pay you $3 for it AND you get $5 x 2 bonus from them, no minimum cashout amount (Freebird app)

US only, need debit card to cash out to (no minimum withdrawal), need to sign in to CC/debit account and pay with that card
You'll pay for first ride out of pocket, and get $5 referral credit on first ride (and $3 from me) and then another $5 on second ride (and can probably get promo code to apply for second one)
Freebird is essentially a ridesharing (Uber mostly, now Lyft, too) cashback app that acts like a portal to Uber and Lyft, much like eBates in a way. This is all guaranteed to work with Uber, so I'm sticking with that.
This is a bit involved but well worth it and very straightforward. Exact instructions follow.
1) Download Freebird app (NOT Freebirds, the burrito place!) by clicking the follwing link: https://my.fbird.co/G30ebkDrzT
2) Make an account by linking your Uber account, and then go to Profile>Promo Codes in Freebird app and enter the referral code p96b1 (just in case it didn't apply through using the above link).
PM me at this point with your first name and I will confirm for you that your signup is indeed tied to my referal for the $5 x 2 from the app later on
3) Go to Profile>Payment Methods to link the CC/debit card you use for your regular Uber app. They must be the same. Now you're all set up! You can take the ride whenever you want after this.
4) When you're ready to take your ride, do the following:
Book a ride using above payment method through the Freebird app, not through Uber app! It says to a movie theater but can be anywhere.
After the ride is complete, you'll get a $5 referral bonus and you can cash it out with no minimum withdrawal required to a debit card.
5) PM me the name you sent me after Step 2 and your Paypal email. If it checks out, I'll send $3 to your PayPal. It may take me up to an hour or so to verify get you the funds -- I'm only checking my reddit periodically! So don't freak out if I don't respond immediately
6) Take the second ride if you want. I won't be paying anything for this one, but the second one will get you another $5 referral promo and before taking the ride, you should put in the codes at the end of this post to see if one works
Here is how the screen should look with promo code applied; make sure promo code you want to use shows.
If you have more than one phone numbeUber account, I'll pay out for each time you do it.
If you have any questions at all, PM or comment, and also let me know if my instructions are uncleaneed revising.
Photo proof of how the promo codes load and cash out
Previous times I ran this offer with payout confirmations there too: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
My rep profile
And my GCExchange profile
PROMO codes to try right now AFTER first ride with my referral code are V2DEA, GO2TEN, 3TENBACK, and URBDAY1 (app will tell you if they do or don't when you enter them on the promo code screen).

2019.10.21 02:36 nstav13 [SPOILERS] The World of the Early Medieval Period and What to Expect from an AC Vikings Game

Since news broke about the next Assassin’s Creed title setting being within the Viking Era, I’ve seen hundreds of comments and questions pertaining to the early medieval setting. Today I want to break down a lot of information in regards to the era and how that can pertain to AC in terms of story, gameplay, and lore. To help make things simple, I’ll leave a map I made here to help show where everything is.
https://i.imgur.com/EfITZcF.jpg
DISCLAIMER - If I got anything major wrong, please let me know so I can correct it. I’ve spent hours searching through various online resources to make this as accurate as I can overall, though there is some speculation based on lack of resources and called out as what I think Ubisoft might do in cases of discrepancies. I did try to keep everything easy to understand even when diving deep into some subjects, so please let me know if you feel something was misrepresented from this. I also do have some inconsistencies with spellings. Many early records did not have standardized spellings, and Old Norse is a pain, so I keep things anglicized for the most part on purpose. For the sake of this, I do group several smaller germanic and slavic kingdoms such as Bohemia, Moravia, and Poland in with the Frankish empire due to the Frankish Influence in society, religion, and architecture. This was purely for ease of listing.
This post was actually written in a google document and is 40 pages long. I understand reddit can be harsh for reading such a long post, so you can read it here.

Second Disclaimer: This was WAY bigger than I thought. So I've split this into 5 distinct sections for ease of access.
  1. FAQ and The World of the Early Medieval Period - Current Section
  2. The People of the Early Medieval Period
  3. The Politics of the Early Medieval Period
  4. The Warfare in the Early Medieval Period
  5. The History of Vikings and What I expect from an AC Viking Game

Frequently Asked Questions
Q. When is the Viking Age?
The Viking Age takes place from 793ce with the Raid on Lindisfarne, England to 1066ce with the Norman Invasion of England and expulsion of the Vikings
Q. When will the game be set within this era?
We currently can only speculate, but two settings in a Ubisoft Poll from a few years ago were during the Viking Era. The Invasion of England by the Great Heathen Army (865ce) and the Norman Invasion by William the Conqueror (1066ce). I’ll discuss more in depth below.
Q. Where will the viking game take place?
Based on polls from Ubisoft that included the viking settings of the Great Heathen Army and Norman Invasion, England is a relatively safe bet. It is also likely that at least some of Scandinavia will be available as well. From the map above, I believe the best guess would be the island of Britain (modern England, Wales, and Scotland), Denmark, Sweden, and Norway. I will be discussing all of Northern Europe that’s shown in the map, though.
Q. Why codename it Kingdom in the viking era, and what will the actual name be?
The codename Kingdom could be in reference to a number of things that could be present in the game. The vikings had several major kingdoms throughout the Age, the largest of which was the North Sea Empire ruled by Cnut the Great. It could also be in reference to the English Kingdoms that players may invade; or even a gameplay mechanic to making your “kingdom” stronger. While the official name has not been revealed, it’s widely speculated to be called “Ragnarok” as a reference to the end times in Norse mythology, due to the connection to Origins, popularity in media, and name being used in several unconfirmed and fake rumors plus a potential concept art leak from 2018.
Q. What evidence is there for the game?
While Kingdom has not been confirmed by Ubisoft, it was leaked by Jason Schreier, who has a perfect track record with AC leaks. It was followed up by a leak by french website xboxygen that many consider to be legitimate due to accuracy on Watch Dogs Legion leaks. We also have concept art from an artist at Ubisoft that was supposedly fan work for their portfolio, but named “michele-nucera-assassincreedragnarok-bay-09.jpg”. The naming convention and timing has many fans speculating heavily. This of course matches with at least one fake leak and several small 4chan rumors that have stated the next game will be named “Ragnarok” and follow Ragnar Lothbrok and his sons great army.

https://gamerant.com/assassins-creed-ragnarok-ubisoft-concept-art/
Q. Will we play as assassins again with hidden blades?
Nothing is officially confirmed yet, but it is unlikely to be full assassins fighting Templars again. The term assassin did not exist until the crusades as a term used to describe the followers of Hassan Ibn Sabbah, who wasn’t born until about 1050ce. With the viking era ending in 1066, it’s unlikely his influence had been amassed and the Hidden Ones were rebranded within AC lore. Templars were in a similar state, with the Templar orders not existing until the early 12th century. Rather than playing as either a Hidden One and fighting the Order of Ancients, we may also play as a viking mercenary popular towards the end of the era called Jomsvikings to further capitalize on Odyssy’s success. I’ll discuss them more later.The hidden blade is a bit more likely though, with it having been invented around 460bce and popularized in 44bce.


The World
Vikings raided and pillaged most of Europe during their voyages, reaching from the Baltic States and Kievan Rus as far south as North Africa, Italy, and even vandalizing Hagia Sophia in Istanbul. I will, however, be focusing on Northern Europe for this discussion, breaking down regions to discuss their land, cities, and architecture. This map of viking trade routes may also be helpful though it isn’t 100% accurate.
Europe is filled with rivers and marshlands as seen here, which was easy for vikings to maneuver due to their longships. As a result, I do think we might see a few rivers enlarged in Kingdom/Ragnarok in order to make ship travel mildly easier and more conducive to gameplay, much like Rogue did.
England, being the most likely to appear, seems to be the best place to start off. England is the largest of the countries in Britain, with the map previously shared it taking up Wessex, Danelaw, Mercia, and Northumbria. I’ll be discussing the changes of those Kingdoms later. England is a largely low lying country, with the largest mountain range, Pennine Mountains, in Northern England. Much of southern England, however, are forests and rolling hills in the center of the country, with much of the outskirts being thick marshes that viking longships could navigate through.A good map of Mountains can be seen here:

I have seen maps of wetlands from the Uk that indicate that there used to be wetlands in the Pennine Mountains, but it seems to be fairly speculative.
Wessex was the southernmost kingdom, and under Alfred the Great underwent a large change to fortify many of its towns or burhs. Stone was hard to quarry and come by at the time, with most of it being taken from Roman fortifications and used in defensive perimeters and churches. This did make abandoned roman forts a popular place to start burhs though. We see largely wooden fences with a trench in front surrounding many towns to help defend from vikings. Inside are mostly 1 story houses separated by a few fairly wide streets. A church was oftentimes a centerpiece of the city, and it wasn’t uncommon to have some farms within the walls itself along with the outside. While burhs like this were more numerous, they likely won’t be the focal points for our adventure in the next AC, instead looking at larger cities instead. They may appear as forms of PoI though or tied to a settlement system. Those closer to Roman ruins were sometimes repurposed to include the first Motte and Bailey castles (more on them in a few moments).
Our bigger cities will likely include Winchester, Canterbury, London, Chester, Bristol, and York. York was by far the largest city with about 15,000 people in its walls by the time the Great Heathen Army landed, with the other cities having 5,000 or fewer. These cities, however, unlike the other burhs had large Roman walls around them already. This did mean that the city size was restricted though, and rather than rebuild walls, the people began building up.
Following the collapse of the Roman Empire and the beginning of the Dark Ages the early medieval peoples lost the knowledge on how to build out of stone well, and quarry for more stone, making it a very valuable commodity. As I mentioned, this meant many burhs and towns were built on top of Roman forts, stripping them for stone to build churches and walls. The rest of the buildings had to deal with cheaper architecture. The most notable of which is wattle and daub. This is thin branches are weaved together and placed into upright slats and then have a thick mud caked on and hardened. This was the most common form of architecture in the early medieval period due to how cheap it was. Timber was still expensive, and despite using cheaper woods to create floors (these often had be elevated slightly on stakes in order to help slow rot, but had to be replaced regularly), was fairly expensive. Timber frames still had to be used though to help keep the shape of the building. Not common early on, at some point around the Viking Era in Britain, we begin to see diagonal bracing added to help keep houses steady.
In the older Roman Cities, many of the roman buildings and forts were stripped early on. London didn’t have any of the original Roman houses left by 1000ce, and by 1100ce had stripped the fort itself leaving only the walls behind. This stone was largely used to create stable foundations for buildings, including along the forming of Thames Street and eventually London Bridge. This also meant that combined with improved timber framing, people could start building upwards and outwards. The process of building high floors larger than the first is called jettying, and became synonymous with the medieval era, becoming very popular in the latter half. While jettying had been around for nearly 1000 years, it was still relatively new for Britain, and by 1066, houses were just reaching 2-3 stories high. We do know that this was incredibly popular by 1100-1200, and began being restricted and regulated in London by 1300 due to some fires in 1133 and 1212 due to building proximity. As buildings couldn’t grow their first floors to impede foot traffic (regulated by law), having more room in upper floors became a necessity. Somewhere in this time we begin to see the creation of skywalks or covered pathways between buildings. I could not find an exact date for when these appeared, but there’s evidence they existed in China in 220ce, so it’s not unreasonable for them to have made it to England within another 600-800 years. Again, while jettying was new, we also have mention of the Shambles in 937, a street in York that is famous for its tilted jettying. Most buildings in that picture are from 1300 onwards due to fires, but it’s not unreasonable to believe it could look similar.
Roofing will likely be almost entirely thatching, or made out of dried straw, reeds, etc over a timber frame. There is some evidence for use of wooden tiles, red roman tiles, turf, and timber as well for roofs, but vary in cost and abundance. Many depictions of medieval england use slate or shale shingles, which while possible would likely be anachronistic, as the first records of those don’t appear until the 1300s, more than the few years for other anachronistic changes.
Castles were still in very early stages in this period. The remains of the Roman Forts not picked apart had been used by royalty such as in Winchester and Canterbury, sometimes having a church built into them. The other type that may be linked to the smaller burhs are the aforementioned Motte and Bailey castles. These are very early castles that originated around the 8th-9th century in Carolingian France. In them, we have a protected area within an enclosure called the Bailey, and that included the only real way up to the often wooden watchtower or small 2-3 story keep. The motte was a large fortified hill that the tower sat upon. This provided a nice advantage and lookout for guards, while making it difficult to storm. These really did not reach England until about 1066 with the Norman Invasion, though even if we have an earlier setting, I can see a mild historical inaccuracy occurring to push these through, as French and English dynasties did get along and travel to each other on numerous occasions.
Overall, Anglo-Saxon Architecture was fairly basic work in the beginning of the period, creating square churches and houses from retrievable stone, timber, and mud. It does appear that the Carolingian Renaissance and frankish styles began spreading to England by the 8th century though, allowing for some larger buildings to exist. Make no mistake, stone work though will be fairly basic within the title, with the most elaborate stone work being window arches and a few stone carvings. Larger sprawling castles, complex stone churches with arches, and even brick based houses will not be in game. These advances were primarily coming from the gothic period and early Tudor dynasty which cemented the traditional fantasy medieval style in most people’s heads of churches like Notre Dame, 5 storied jettying houses with plaster filling and timber and brick frames, and massive stone castles with knights in plate armor.
Celtic lands consist of several major areas in the British Isles, now making up the countries of Ireland (and North Ireland), Isle of Man, Scotland, and Wales. The celts, while largely good stone workers, each had several unique flairs and differences across the lands due to different cultural influences.
Ireland is largely grasslands with a few major mountain ranges along the southern and northwestern coasts, as can be seen in this map. Within the inner part of Ireland and a few surrounding islands such as Mann and Skellig to as far away as Oakney, which were largely isolated from Britain became the home of the Celts, that - primarily in Ireland - lived in clusters of towns called Tuatha with a probable high king. More on his position later. In the neolithic through early medieval period we see the creation of stone huts called Beehive Huts. These may look familiar as the huts seen in Star Wars Force Awakens and Last Jedi which filmed on the Skellig Islands. The Tuatha meanwhile were a cluster of towns that each held 3000 people and 1000 large houses holding 30 people each. A good example of this is Rathcroghan. Smaller houses for single families could be seen too, and like the large houses were mostly circular wood and largely straw homes. Ireland was far less wooded than Britain, forcing the settlements to rely on wood, stone, and straw far more. Vikings began to settle in Ireland though, creating the first real large cities of Ireland by founding Dublin, Wexford, Waterford, Cork, and Limerick which were used as ports and easy staging areas for future raids, especially to Britain.
Unfortunately Wales history has been extremely hard to research and understand the architecture of this mountainous and rugged country. Many fires and revolutions during the high middle ages destroyed the history, leaving behind stone castles built post Norman Invasion and records of political turmoil in the early kingdoms of Wales (more on that later). It’s highly suspected that despite the Celtic Influence from Ireland, the Britons of Wales, especially in the northern Gwynedd, had architecture similar to the Frankish and English. The city I can find the most on that definitely existed in this era was Bangor, which is one of the oldest Welsh cities overall. It seems there were Roman Forts at modern Newport and Cardiff, but the extent of the settlement there post Rome is unknown. Vikings did settle the town of Swansea as well in the early 1000s, but other than that held no permanent residence in Wales due to the Welsh Kingdoms power.
Scotland during its early years was made up of a few separate kingdoms which started to become United under Alba by the Viking Era. The records of many of the country’s cities were actually hill forts nestled into the rocky, mountainous, and ravenous terrain of the region that include Craig Phadrig, Aberdeen, Dunadd, Dumbarton Rock, Edinburgh, and Scone. What wasn’t Roman Fortress was largely low lying single story wattle and daub houses with timber frames, wooden churches, and a few stone beehive huts, most of which was described to blend into the hills.
Scandinavia contrasts heavily with medieval England though. Rather than being a single large Island or collection of isles, Scandinavia describes modern Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Iceland. To make it simpler, I’m going to break it up into Viking and NonViking Scandinavia, which was predominantly based on how far north the vikings went.
Viking Scandinavia is primarily Southern Norway, Sweden, and Denmark. Norway is a very mountainous and hilly region creating massive and beautiful Fjords or inlets with high cliffs. Sweden is on the east side of the mountains being mildly lower but hilly and mountainous nonetheless. Both are mostly covered in a Boreal Forest, or a subarctic Taiga, a forest that is characterized by evergreens in a very cold climate, with tall but skinny trunks and wide but thin branches. This contrasts from the deciduous forests native to England and most of Europe including Denmark, the southernmost part of Scandinavia that’s a low lying peninsula known as the Jutland Peninsula with a collection of several large islands known as the Danish Archipelago.
The Jutland was home to three of the largest trading hubs in the Viking world, being Aarhus, Ribe, and the largest of Hedeby which contained about 1000 people. Most of the largest cities in Scandinavia were not founded until after the viking era was over, but several major cities weren’t far from them. The religious city of Uppsala and the nearby town of Birka were relatively close to modern Stockholm in Sweden and Roskilde near modern Copenhagen. Oslo (or Anslo as it was called) was founded around 1040, meaning it could appear in the title. Kaupung and Trondheim were larger hubs in Norway, with Trondheim towards northern Norway along the coast of the Norwegian Sea. Reykjavik and a few other towns were founded in Iceland in 874, so it’s not impossible to see them too.
There are many contemporary and modern sources on viking architecture, and while it was almost entirely wood and mud, I do want to discuss some common themes I’ve seen doing research into Viking Architecture styles. To begin with, some commonalities are that viking villages are generally flat with low single story buildings and wide streets. Ubisoft’s last foray into the viking era with For Honor had shown off a viking village with the opposite though, being taller 2-3 story houses, narrow paths on a hill. While undoubtedly visually pleasing, it’s certainly inaccurate. As we see from the potentially leaked concept art for Ragnarok, Bay 09 includes a sprawling viking city on a mountain side overlooking a Fjord, with high towers, multiple story buildings, and even a bridge with houses built onto it. Again it’s visually appealing, and would likely work well with parkour despite being on a more fantastical side of what we ought to see. The other big commonality is that most viking villages had a sizeable mead hall that was used for town religious and political purposes, often being a timber longhouse.
While most viking houses were wooden and had straw and mud roofs, it appears that some commonalities were more based on region. This bit is speculation, as I’ve had difficulty verify the veracity and historical accuracy of this architectural style, but based on the aforementioned concept art, it’s not unlikely to be seeing a more mythicized version of the world, meaning a few historical discrepancies are likely. From what I’ve seen, these largely wooden and more ornate buildings, despite being 1-1.5 stories were more commonly associated with Norway. I’d speculate that more mountainous terrain could make creating foundations for a house, especially longhouses, fairly difficult; thus forcing smaller and more stable homes to be designed out of primarily wood rather than earth works. Sweden, on the other hand would try to marry a larger footprint of longhouses such as in Denmark while being ornate and suited to the terrain, creating wood, straw, and mud houses that may have been similar to this. Denmark would largely focus on larger footprints using primarily longhouses within their city’s defenses, which likely owed to creating some of the larger cities of the viking era like Hedeby. During Harald Bluetooth’s reign and even as late as Cnut the Great, the Viking Ring Fortress became popular, especially in Denmark and Sweden, comprising of several longhouses and smaller houses in squares surrounded by a large earth wall, created by digging a trench along the outside of the desired hill. During construction the hill, 4 wooden passageways were left through the hill, with dirt and sod packed on top and to the sides, allowing people to freely move in and out of the fortress. The hill was then fortified with large timber siding on both the inside and outside, while allowing people from the inside easy access to the top of the hill, which now acted as a wall.
Iceland greatly differs from these areas though, with a far harsher environment. About 50% of iceland is covered in rough rocky volcanic lava deserts and glacial wastelands in a region called the Highlands. The rest of iceland is rocky and mountainous grassland surrounded by massive Fjords. While there were numerous viking settlements throughout the island, the largest and one of the first was the now-capital-city of Reykjavik. Unlike traditional viking settlements though, many homes were timber built but completely covered in mud and sod. This was to keep the heat trapped in the home due to the harsher environment, creating settlements that may have looked a bit like this.
Northern Scandinavia was left largely uninhabited by the vikings, having small tribes of the Lapps and Sami people control the regions, especially in what’s modern Finland. The farthest north of this area was of course marked by the arctic circle and boreal forest while the west was more mountains and forest from Norway and Sweden. Finland, though, has a massive area known as central lake plateau, which is a plateau in the center of the country that is full of lakes, swamps, and boreal forest. Going farther south to the Baltic coast will be met with a large swamp and “Archipelago Sea”. The Sami and Lapps never contained large amounts of wealth or large cities, creating only small settlements of Mud and Wooden huts, not dissimilar from American Indian Tipis.
Frankish territory extended far past modern France, making up modern France, Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, and a few other countries in what was the Holy Roman Empire. Prior to the viking age, the empire collapsed and eventually split into several regions marked on the map, more on the politics of this later. Seeing all of the Frankish Kingdoms is pretty unlikely, as is seeing any of them in the main game in my opinion, but they do hold some of the richest lands and cities in the Early Medieval Period in Europe.
The vast majority of this region is open grasslands, soft rolling fields, and forests scattered throughout the areas labeled as Brittany, West Francia, Normandy, Lotharingia, and Saxony. Frisia and part of northern Saxony were large swamp lands. Angers, Tours, and Orleans are the southernmost cities in western Francia and near the border of Brittany. Rouen was just inside the Duchy of Normandy, with Paris along the same river not far outside the borders. Frisia’s largest city was Utrecht, with many modern towns like Amsterdam only existing as fishing villages if at all. In Saxony and Lotharingia we’d see larger cities of Hamburg and Frankfurt. While the exact populations of many cities are unknown, by 1050 Cologne had around 21,000 people and Paris had 25,000 by 800, far more than any English city.
Just to the east we have the regions of Pomerania and Lusatia, both regional names for kingdoms of Bohemia and Moravia along with groups of people living in what’s now modern Poland. The northern area of Pomerania is a fairly flat and grassy area known as the Polish Plain, contrasted with the southern portion that has steeper rolling hills. Wolin was a major stopping and trading hub for Vikings, and likely related to the potentially mythical city of Jomsborg. To the south three major cities existed along separate riverways that fed back into the Baltic: Poznan, Prague, and Krakow.
Most of these areas had a very distinct architectural style known as Preromanesque, which as it sounds came before the architectural style Romanesque. The Merovingian Dynasty from the 5th century to 751 is what really inspired this architectural choice, which then split into 2 similar but different styles of Carolingian and Ottonian, after rulers in Carolingian Dynasty and King Otto. An example of the Preromaneque Architecture would be Charlemange’s Palace, which upon observation has clear Roman influence due to presence of arches and round structures, but overall left a fairly flat facade. This Carolingian Monastery has fairly few discernable differences to this Ottonian church in Frankfurt. We do see a large emphasis on the interior beauty though, as evidenced by this carolingian church. By the 11th century we start to see a shift towards being larger and more ornate buildings such as this church, which has an obvious emphasis on the facade. While this is the era in which castles and keeps started to be made, most buildings would not be above 3 stories, and real castles wouldn’t be built until after the Norman Invasions of William the Conqueror. For now, we’d likely just see more Motte and Bailey castles.
That primarily covers the big landmarks made by and for the kings and religious. Peasants, however, did not have such luxuries, often living in the stone houses left behind by the romans in these cities and forts. As the cities grew, due to walls existing, much like England, it became common (even earlier too) to start building up by using wattle and daub, stripping the stone as needed, though France (at least with the rich) had far less of an issue with acquiring stonework. Paris was subjected to multiple raids, though two really stood out and were encapsulated in art that can help show what the city may have looked like at the time. The first was in 845 at the hands of Ragnar Lothbrok, and as we can see, it had a decent sized Carolingian Palace in Ile de la Cite (please note that the larger cathedral attached to the palace and Conciergerie weren’t built until the 13th century, but the section with the lower roofs were updated around 800), juxtaposed by the Preromanesque churches and Roman Ruins on the outskirts. By 885, however, Rollo had to face walls on the other side of the bridges, helping defend the outer city more. The TV show Vikings actually did cover this as well, seemingly combining the two sieges and adding a more anachronistic flare such as the taller roofs on the towers and greatly exaggerating the size of everything, despite Paris definitely being more built up than English cities. It would not be unlikely to see cities largely built up as the classic fantasy medieval cities, though with mildly less stone and no bricks; not dissimilar to this (https://www.turbosquid.com/3d-models/medieval-port-3d-1144332). Even in that we see the Carolingian church rather than a larger gothic one, which is an important thing to remember for the early medieval period.
Kievan Rus was the most different to any region discussed so far. Like other Northern European areas, it’s largely plains, a few rolling hills, and mountains to the southwest of the region in what is now mostly Poland, Ukraine, and Belarus. I do include the modern Baltic States in the map of Kievan Rus territory though due to the area being primarily inhabited by small tribes, Slavs, and often being used as a hub for piracy and trade by the Varangians that inhabited Kievan Rus.
I want to discuss this group of people later, but their land was very important, being the easiest way for vikings to trade with people from Greece, Turkey, and the Middle East, as the Varangians controlled every major trade route in Eastern Europe from the Black to Baltic Sea.
This lead to what would be the most interesting architecture in the title though, as despite likely having roots from vikings, eventually turned to Eastern Orthodoxy based on Byzantine tradition, and developed the architecture as such. By about 1000ce, the capital of Kiev was decorated with large wooden and stone monuments with exotic and ornate domes inherent to the Byzantine Structure. Kiev, while the capital was one of the 3 major cities in the region, with the other 2 being Polotsk in the north west, and the original capital of Novgorad in the north.
TL;DR: There were several distinct regions and architectural styles in the early medieval era, ranging from the viking single story houses and longhouses, to multi story compact cities made of wattle and daub and timber frames which could be surrounded by large stone churches, juxtaposed by the exotic domes of the eastern Rus.

Payment Terms Payment Process: When you download the Application and register for an Account, you will receive access to available offers made by Member Businesses (each an “Offer”). If you accept an Offer and hail a ride pursuant to an Offer, payment for the total amount of the ride will be made to the rideshare operator using your credit card or other payment method on file with such rideshare operator. Payment will be governed by your agreement with the rideshare operator and any applicable agreement with your credit card company.
You must link one or more of your credit or debit cards with Freebird Rides to enable Freebird Rides to validate you have made a purchase at the Member Business establishment (each a “Linked Card”). When you reach the Member Business establishment and make a purchase there with a Linked Card, Freebird Rides will receive notice of the purchase and other payment information, including the date and time of purchase, amount of purchase, last four digits of the credit card number, city/state/zip code, and payment card type (“Payment Information”).

Providing this information to Freebird Rides allows Freebird Rides to track the value of the Services on behalf of Member Businesses. Freebird Rides will keep confidential all Payment Information in accordance with applicable law and best industry practices and will not use such Payment Information for any purpose whatsoever, other than as set forth herein.
Upon receipt of notice that you have made a purchase, Freebird Rides will transfer credit from the Member Business’s account with Freebird Rides directly to your Account subject to the operating procedures of your bank. The amount will show as pending until such time as settlement occurs (usually within 72 hours), at which time you may transfer the credit into the bank account you have given us for the purposes of making reimbursements to you.
You are required to make a purchase at the Member Business before receiving reimbursement, but no specific amount of purchase is required.
If, for any reason, you do not make a purchase at the Member Business, you will not be reimbursed for the amount paid to the rideshare operator. If you have not created a Linked Card that matches the card you used to make a purchase at the Member Business within 45 days of such purchase, you will no longer be entitled to receive the Member Offer for that purchase. If, for any reason, your Linked Card does not match your transaction at a Member Business and you do not receive the Member Offer, you must report the issue to Freebird Rides by creating a ticket with Freebird Rides customer support within 45 days of your transaction date. If you do not create a support ticket within 45 days of such ride to a Member Business, you will forfeit your unclaimed Member Offer.
