Nakakapagod noh? Nakakapagod magpakilala, kumilala, makipagkita. Some observations/rants I have trying Reddit dating.
  1. Some men will fake it and say na gusto nila genuine pero will ask you to stay in a hotel.
  2. Karamihan sa una lang interested. They will chat you tas pag nagreply ka hindi na sila magrereply. Nakakabwisit toh haha
  3. I met someone pero idk, halfway through the date he asked me what time ako uuwi coz may dinner sya. Not sure if its true. If you don't wanna continue why not just say it. Saves time.
  4. Kapag naman nakavibes mo, after some time nawawala rin.
Mukhang susuko na talaga ako. Haha.
Ps. Sorry sa mga hindi ko na nareplyan, nawalan na ako ng gana.

2023.06.10 13:13 FunKOR JFK To Mumbai Air India Business Class

I flew recently from JFK to Mumbai on Air India. We went business class in both directions and it was really nice. The outbound flight was an older 777-300er with the old lay flat seats. We were extremely wary due to all the bad reviews I had read on this site. We brought cleaning wipes and seat covers expecting horrors. The weird fan style seat separator was as old and dirty as I had read. That was the worst part however and since i was with my fiance I didn't need a separator. The entertainment system was antiquated and required a few reboots but I had my iPad and noise cancellers so I was ok. Wait, I said really nice didn't I? Ok, I think Air India is aware that it has an older fleet and tries to make up with it with personnel and add ons. The flight crew was lovely. I mean as sweet and hospitable as one could ask for. They also gave us Tumi toilertry kits and Tumi pajamas (i'm home wearing those currently because they're quite comfy.). The food was tasty and they were on the spot with provisions. Done with the small water bottle? Here's a huge water bottle! Done with your whiskey? Here's a triple! You get one dessert. Oh, they all look nice? Whoops, here's 3. To keep your eyes off the older plane they turned up the care. Ok, that's the JFK to Mumbai leg. 14 hrs.
Mumbai to JFK, 15 hours, was top notch. NOTE: If you do this don't rely on the board at the lounge. It never said boarding and we almost missed the flight. I was lost in the lounge hospitality. They kept brining me new drafts of Kingfisher. I digress.
The flight home was on a 777-200. New or retrofit, I'm not sure, but we had the Sky Suites. My fiancé and I each had our own cubicle thing with privacy door. The seat was huge and spacious. The entertainment system was new and full of Hollywood and Bollywood content. The flight crew was as warm and friendly as the folks on the outbound flight. We got the same Tumi box and toiletries. The food was plentiful and tasty.
Candidly, I had a very low expectation due to reddit reviews and other review articles. Also, my only other experience in business class was roundtrip from JFK to Paris. I give you that as background as it seems many folks here have a lot more business class experiences (Emirates, Etihad, etc.). Anyway, a direct flight from JFK to Bombay makes the trip easier and after this experience I'll keep flying Air India. I think the switch to Tata has been for the better.
Tip. You arrive in Mumbai 24 hours after you leave JFK due to time shift so if you leave at 9am you arrive at 9am and get your day. Try to take a late night flight home. That way your arrive in JFK in the morning and mitigate jet lag. Good luck.
(Random Note: Rooting for the Mumbai Indians New York when Major League Cricket starts, though my fiancé's uncle says Twenty20 is "cricket circus". I hope it picks up in the states!)

2023.06.10 13:12 moshpitrocker GPA Update on Power System Status Restoration June 10, 2023 Day 16 Since COR4

GPA Update on Power System Status Restoration June 10, 2023 Day 16 Since COR4
Guam Power Authority (GPA) continues its power restoration process and have made progress to its post-typhoon recovery. The crews are divided into sectors to systematically address grid repairs throughout the island. GPA will continue to provide an estimate recovery summary to summarize our restoration progress to the Island-Wide Power System (IWPS).
Typhoon Mawar Recovery Summary As of 1:00 pm, SATURDAY June 10, 2023
IWPS System Load Restored (Customer Demand) 76.0% Customers Restored 53.0%
Note: System Load (customer demand) percentage is higher than customer count because commercial and industrial loads are higher than residential loads.
Generation Capacity: 195MW of capacity online supporting 152MW load.
Last night, a second transmission line (Piti to Hagatna) was returned to service. This effort was accomplished by 11 crews working in coordination with each other. The completion of this major task provides additional reliability to the grid and minimizes grid separation, as had happened yesterday and earlier.
TODAY’S KEY OBJECTIVES INCLUDE: • Continue Phase II recovery effort by sweeping these feeders and restoring customers with minimal typhoon damage. In this second phase of the post-typhoon recovery, GPA crews are addressing three or more sectors (north, central, and south) to restore as many customers (with minimal storm damage) as possible per feeder. Those with significant damages will be addressed in Phase III recovery efforts.
Some areas of focus over the next 1 to 3 days include: NORTH Severe typhoon damage to the power grid in Dededo and Yigo. • Dededo, various areas including main village, Liguan Terrace, Ysengsong, Rte 3, Salisbury (P-270, P-087, P-088, P-089, P-046) Yigo, various areas Wusstig, Yigo Rd, Chalan La Chanch, Mataguac, Anao, Rte 15 areas (P-089, P-320, P-330, P-331, P-332) • Tamuning, including Harmon McDonald’s and Taitano Road areas (P-310)
CENTRAL • Asan (P-280) • Piti, including Nimitz Hill areas (P-007, P-005) • Hagåtña (P-280) • Maina (P-280) • Mangilao Rte 15 in Marbo & Hawaiian Rock areas (P-323) • Yona including Baza Gardens (P-262) • Ordot-Chalan Pago (P-250) • Toto including along Roy T Damian St (P-253)
SOUTH • Hågat and Santa Rita, villages and subdivisions (P-220, P-221, P-223) • Inalåhan (P-261) • Målesso, village (P-340) • Humåtak (P-341)
OTHER • Snohomish PUD crew will begin restoring the 115kV express line (Piti to Harmon). Once complete, the same crew will work to restore other transmission lines. This critical work will re-establish grid redundancy and strength. • GPA and CUC crews continue to make swift repairs to distribution circuits to maximize restoration to all customers. • GPA anticipates shifting to Phase III post-typhoon recovery within the next few days. Pocket restorations and more severely damaged areas will be addressed in Phase III. Note: As power lines heat up, weak points of the system will be apparent (e.g., storm damaged transformers, fuse cutouts, lightning arrestors, connections). Crews will do their best to make immediate repairs; if they cannot, they will return to make the repairs as soon as possible. Please report emergency power issues to GPA Dispatch at 475-1472/3/4
GENERATION CAPACITY • Current operable capacity is 195MW which is adequate for today’s load of 152MW. • Cabras 2 (45MW) is available for service, once needed. Piti 8 & 9 are online. Work continues to dry out baseload unit Cabras 1 (45MW), and to be ready for service in about a week.
GENERAL NOTIFICATIONS: • GPA welcomes an 8-member line crew from Pohnpei, arriving late today and early tomorrow morning. We greatly appreciate the assistance from our utility brothers. • The 4 major dialysis centers are on island power. GPA has also been energizing the core centers for all communication companies. • The island-wide power system (IWPS) may be unstable, with fluctuating voltages, power interruptions and intermittencies occurring during restoration and recovery especially after a strong typhoon. Outages or interruptions may occur after power has been restored. This is not unusual as the grid is fragile and a period of system instability will occur until full restoration is completed. GPA will make every effort to have power restored as quickly as possible to its customers. Once full restoration is completed around the island, the system will stabilize and less power interruptions will occur. • Our priority is to restore energy back into your homes and businesses; and restore the island-wide power system online at full capacity. GPA linemen and support crews are working night and day for you, your families, and your businesses. Si Yu’os Ma’åse’ for your patience and support.

2023.06.10 13:12 Aussie_Endeavour Sins

A man presses his hand against his daughter’s forehead. Hot. Too hot. She needs food, meat to be precise. Her mother works to keep the fire ablaze, the smoke painting the cave roof black with soot. The man’s brother found this cave before he… keep back the tears. No tears. Not here.
This cave is the only refuge for days, unless you wish to brave the snow. His family will not, his daughter won’t make it. But she has to make it. If she fails, he will too. And so he pulls the beast skin taught around him, the woolly barrier all that lies between him and the ice.
Spear in hand, he swears his return to his lover. He promises that their daughter will eat today. One step out of the cave, and the winds already confront him. They laugh at him, taunt him with their wicked cackling. He ignores them. They will not save his daughter, and so they are of no concern to him.
The man tries to hunt, but it’s hard to do when neither prey nor predator are about. They would be crazy to be out in the snow at this time, but the man has no choice. The memories begin to trickle back to him. His brother, laughing. He promised the meat for his niece. He promised his return. Promises broken by the cold.
A call sounds from beyond a hill. The man halts, for he knows that cry. Slowly emerging over the hill, he sees it. He sees the deadly tusks. He sees the powerful trunk and feet. He sees the delicious meat. He will not break his promise.
A roar answers a call. David answers Goliath. The rage against the snow, the grief for his brother, the hope for his daughter. All these things, the man channels into his spear. He releases his grip and the weapon begins its own hunt. He knows his aim is true.
A quick swing of his scythe, and the stalk tumbles. Golden grasses spread out as far as the eye can see, the barn just barely visible in the distance. The farmer can hear his farmhands nearby, their own tools harvesting the hard-earned wheat. He will of course keep some for his family, and the farmhands will receive their share, but the rest he will sell. To whom? He does not care.
The wagon carrying the grown gold makes its way past the now empty fields, and playing children wave to the man at the helm, all the while giving the horses a wide berth. The driver does some quick calculations in his head and smiles, the price he paid for the wheat will be more than paid off by the Lord. Another great profit this year, as long as they can prepare in time.
All through the night, and the next day, and the next again, his family works, even the young one joining in. The kids cheer and holler as the final batch begins to bake, and the man’s wife gives him a proud kiss on the cheek. They’ll make their deadline after all.
Another wagon, this time with guards. The man didn’t even bother watching them depart, he knew that they wouldn't let anything happen to the edible treasure. Slowly making their way up the winding street towards the castle ground, the guards make sure to form a path through the commoners.
Arriving at the grand gate, the wagon halts as its merchandise is investigated. None shall dare steal from the Lord. Except maybe the young soldier, sneaking a single loaf while his superior is distracted. He will feast well tonight.
A feast indeed, though not for him. The dozens chefs work as one, everything must be perfect for tonight, not a single undercooked potato, not even a slightly charred fish. The bread is sliced and split and soaked. It is the foundation upon which the feast (and the chefs’ careers) depend.
The Lord smiles in his seat, his children to his left, advisers to the right, honoured guests at the far end. They all stand, awaiting his blessing, stealing glances at the buffet which their Lord so graciously ordered. He smiles and proclaims the beginning, and the wheat finds its purpose.
Her majesty will not be disappointed, not with the captain, and not with her crew. They had been sailing for months now, and supplies were beginning to run low. Oh well, the captain thought, suck it up! Her majesty heard tales of this land, and they shall find it for her.
Tempers running high, and shouts ringing out in the night, all screech to a halt, when laughter comes from the crow’s nest. A cry of joy and of celebration. The captain didn’t believe it, she pushed aside her first mate, and raised the spyglass out into the sea. There, on the edge of the horizon, the greeny brown tips of land were visible.
An anchor dropped, and the crew practically tumbled out of their rowboats onto the sand. Landfall at last, her majesty will be so pleased. Most of the crew was ordered to search for edible plants to refill their reserves, while those that remained began boiling salt water. The first mate brought the flag, and they began walking towards a distant hill, the perfect place to claim for their queen.
Along the walk the botanist grew increasingly annoying. How could someone be so obsessed with stupid plants? He insisted on stopping every few minutes so that he could sketch the new findings. The ninth time this happened, the captain drew her cutlass and freed the plant from its stem. The botanist stayed quiet for the rest of the hike.
Finally, the trio crested the hill, and the land splayed out before them. A new land, all for their queen. She will be pleased with them at last. The pole stabbed into the untouched earth, and the flag was raised. The wind was perfect, blowing in from the sea, the flag waved in all its glory, reaching out over the plains.
While watching their feat, the captain felt the pestering botanist tap her shoulder. She reprimanded him, but he seemed distracted from the scolding. He pointed somewhere to the North, and following his finger, the captain saw a few small structures near the trees.
Huts? No it couldn't be. Raising her spyglass again, they came into view. And standing beside them, staring up at her majesty’s flag, where a few figures, confusion abundantly clear on their faces. Oh well. It looks like the captain has some work to do.
Tears fall down her eyes and the nurses run around, trying to stabilise her. Even if she wasn't, she didn't care in that moment. How could she, while the newborn in her arms wailed? She looked up to find the boy’s father shedding his own tears. She was glad knowing that he would protect their son, no matter what.
The boy never took off his mother’s favourite pendant, the one she was wearing that fateful day all those years ago. Even when his younger siblings asked about it, or his new mother, he never let them touch it, not in all of these years. He loved them, he really did, but they could never understand. He wasn’t sure if he could either.
The pendant glistened in the sun, and for the first time in two decades, a hand that wasn’t his own held it. He trusted her like none before. He could fall into her eyes forever, and she could sink into his arms for eternity. Why would anyone give this up, for someone they are yet to know?
More crying, salty tears staining the floor. Finally, the cries of a woman came to an end, and they were replaced by those of a baby. The woman began laughing, for joy filled her heart so fully. As the man looked into his daughter's wondrous eyes, he finally understood.
The girl laughed and played with her friends, half of whom were her cousins. The boring adults sat inside, talking about ‘Will’, whoever that was. She didn’t care, because she wanted to show all her friends and cousins the birthday present she got from her father. The pendant gleamed, dangling from her fist as she held it as high as she could. She would treasure it forever and ever. She swore that no one could ever have it but her.
But time cares not for such things. The boy sat on the stairs outside the venue, rain pattering down beside him as the gas lamps pierced through the darkness. His grandmother told him to hold the pendant close to his heart, it’s silver dulled by the years but nonetheless beautiful. He stilled his nerves and turned to walk back inside. It was his third cousin’s wedding after all, the least he can do is be happy for them.
The man may be annoying, but he is strategic. He stands at the place he knows has the most foot traffic at this time of day, that charming smile plastered on his face. He proclaimed his wisdom to all those who would listen, and many who would not. Horses were a thing of the past, electricity was the new craze.
Turning gears and rumbling motors, oh how wonderful they sounded to him. He would work until he dropped, for his message had to travel far and wide. Was he harassed? Of course he was! That was business! Stupid people who wanted to stick with the beasts and needed some sense knocked into them, and he was more than happy to take charge.
A failed engine or two, that's the price of progress! What, you think the first house didn’t crumble under its own weight? You think the first lightbulb didn’t burn out in mere moments? Innovation demands the tortoise, my friend, not the hare.
After all the hard work of him and his compatriots, the beeping sounds of car horns filled the cobbled street below. Success sounded from the road to his ears, and money into his pockets. A knock on his door spoiled his fun, but he knew it was for the best. His friends were here with more news from far away, broadcast to their home with that one doohickey, what was it called? A radio?
What next was there that they could do? What could they teach their children to do? Perhaps a portable radio? What could be more convenient than that? Ideas were the lifeblood of society after all, one of his many catchphrases. The world was changing, life was getting easier, and the salesman could not be happier.
A dream adrift across a sea of consciousness, not one nor two nor three. A dream shared by many, deep within their hearts. A little girl tucked into bed, singing a song of twinkling stars. An old man looking out his window, and finding the moon staring back. An ambitious teenager wishing to one day visit the sands of Mars.
A dream that began in the distant past, when the ancients gave names to the stars, and wove stories of the planets. A dream that persists to the modern day, as humanity desperately claws at the void, begging for even a single foothold. A dream that will come true in the future.
Humanity knows it will come true, because it simply must. There is no alternative. They look up to the stars and imagine so many wondrous things. They imagine that they are not alone, that there are others out there, waiting for them. These other societies, surely they have been up there far longer than we have.
Surely they have solved all of their feeble problems by now… so why haven’t we? Why do we suffer on the Earth, while they revel in the heavens? Why are our feet on solid ground, while their wings span the stars? It isn’t fair, humanity thinks.
A ship ascends to the edge of space, close enough to reach for the vacuum. Another lands on the moon, but must retreat mere hours later. Years go by. The Earth spins, and the Solar system continues its celestial dance. Rovers landing on other worlds, only to be battered and broken by the elements. Craft flung out into the depths of space, only to be lost to the endless void.
Why is this so hard? Where is everybody? Are they ignoring us? Why are they ignoring us? Why can’t we do this? Why… why… why? It isn’t fair. IT ISN'T FAIR. We deserve this. We need this.
Finally, after yet another monotonous day, I collapse onto my couch. Home sweet home at last. The train was late again, so it almost made me miss the bus, something that happens far more often then I would like. Bags abandoned thoughtlessly near the door, arms sprawled out beside me as I listen to the clock slowly ticking away on the wall, taunting me. Hm... maybe I have enough time tonight. A bottle of water and a bowl of chips beside me, the satisfying sound of a mouse and keyboard connecting fills my headphones. I open up a document already filled with tens of thousands of words, and prepare to add more yet. Fingers dancing across the keys, a new story unravelling onto the digital page in front of me.
First, a story of protection and rage. A father doing whatever it takes to save his daughter, and who will fell behemoths to make sure she is safe. Fueled by fury for a lost brother, his spear conquers the ice and snow. A story of humans unafraid to show our wrath, to bare our teeth and wield our strength.
Second, a story of joy and feasting. A farmer harvesting his well-earned yield, of wheat carried far afield to be kneaded by hard working hands all to be delivered to a grand castle, and placed on the table of a noble's feast. A story of humans embracing their gluttony, and thinking themselves so smart in their creations.
Third, a story of searching and tragedy. An explorer sailing the waters of a sturdy vessel, arriving to new lands with new people to meet, (not that she cares) and staking the banner of her majesty's power in the soil. Spreading and conquering, never satisfied. A story of humans feeding their greed, of claiming what they want, and believing it to have been theirs all along.
Fourth, a story of purpose and love. A mother, holding her first born in her arms. When he grows, his siblings follow suit, and he loves them with all his heart. His mother’s pendant in hand, the cycle continues. Parent to child, child to parent, again and again, as the family grows. A story of humans showing their lust as each generation expands faster and faster.
Fifth, a story of trial and innovation. A salesman displaying the latest device to appear on the market, a newfangled machine that gets you from point A to B. What's next? Something to warm your food for you, to cook for you, to drive for you, to work for you? A story of humans giving into sloth, as their intelligence makes it all so much easier.
Sixth, a story of longing and wonder. A civilization looking up to the stars above, and their minds wander. What could be up there? Who could be up there? Why are they up there, but we are not? We want it. It is our birthright. A story of humans succumbing to envy of those they can’t even prove the existence of… not that that will deter them.
Six ideas for a story, and none that I particularly felt happy with. I did a small draft from each, nothing major, but none of them grasped me. I lean back in my chair, contemplating. I need something... more human. Something that people can relate to, perhaps something they can enjoy reading... wait, that's it! I know just what to do.
My seventh idea is not a single written piece, for the story it tells is too broad, and all too common to be contained within this single page. It is a story of humanity, and triumph.
It is a science fiction work, fantastical, and post-apocalyptic. It is romantic, tragic, comedic, erotic, mysterious and meta. It is all of these, and none of them.
It is a story about humanity’s capacity to conquer fear and tame fury, of embracing joy and delighting in sorrow. It is all of these, and none of them.
Delving into worlds not our own, or perhaps those lurking in glistening shadows. Countless lands, countless critters, countless magics. A world of delving into dungeons, and a world of defying the will of dragons. A world painted across the silver screen, and a world engraved in pitch black ink.
You may be thinking, ‘what on Earth am I talking about?’, and oftentimes the answer lies beyond the planet. This story is told in the clouds of Venus, and the dunes of Mars. Racing through the Sun’s corona, fleeing across Pluto’s heart. A story of discovering friends and foes among the stars, and a story of being forever alone.
When we initiate first contact, they will finally see what comes out of cruel space. We show those who are out there why humans avoid war, and we will show them the nature of predators.
A story where humans control the galaxy.
A story where humans are long gone.
A story where humans dance with death.
These stories, you’ve read them before, haven’t you?
What could be more human, then indulging in our sense of supremacy? Creating propaganda so blatant that we revel in that fact. Delusions of grandeur that we clap and cheer for. Stories where we are simply better.
One which you are reading right now.
But you won’t stop, will you?
Don’t deny it.
I am no better.
I’m the one writing this, afterall.
Indulging in my addiction of creating worlds where we are better.
Where you feel powerful.
Where I feel in control.
Thank you for reading, my dearest sinner.
Oh, and don’t forget the most human sin of all.
One which neither you nor I wish to escape.

2023.06.10 13:10 essay383 The Possibility of a UK/Europe Tour?

Me and my fellow European friends will share the pain of Adams last time touring here is now over 10 years ago. When Mobile Orchestra came out and there was no tour announcement for here I was like “okay sure, the album was not a hit over here, he gets no real radio time; the label contract is almost up so why bother spending the money” That I could deal with. With Cinematic I could also understand because it was all basically coming out of Adams pocket and he was only hitting the places he knew he still had popularity.
That being said; I REALLY wanna see this current tour, I’m aware he made a passing comment on a livestream about wanting to return to the UK but it’s starting to fade away; the only hope I’m clinging onto is the fact that no parts of Asia have been announced yet, a part of the world Adam has never missed even when going indie, so maybe more dates are coming. I think he thinks not enough tickets will sell but then I remember plenty of North American artists touring the UK from the previous year who pretty much have no media presence in the UK and how shocked I was at the turn out of people.
So to close; does anyone else think there’s still hope? 2012 was a long time ago Adam, people love nostalgia, we wanna see you again, please come back <3

2023.06.10 13:06 bannanaspace Iberia 9th Circle of Hell - What do I do?

Booked 6 x J from the East Coast US to IBZ a year ago for travel in a couple weeks on the following married segment award itinerary:
6/20 US - MAD overnight, lands at 10:00
6/21 MAD - ALC departing at 12:00
6/21 ALC - IBZ departing at 14:00
Got an email yesterday that my MAD to ALC flight now departs at about 15:55, rendering my itinerary broken.
Looked online and see plenty of Iberia operated MAD to IBZ cash pay flights all day long that should work - easy solution, right? Nope - Iberia’s shitty system and poorly trained reps claim that since this is a married segment award booking they can only rebook all 6 of us on another US to IBZ start to finish itinerary (in Y, as J are all gone) on another day or cancel the entire itinerary. Or I can just do nothing and roll the dice that someone at the airport can fix this day-of.
We have an Airbnb paid for, meeting people, traveling with kids, car rental booked, etc. I can’t just move days without incurring significant costs, have no interest in losing the TATL J segment, and really want to avoid 5+ hour layover at MAD with exhausted kids only to get stuck overnight in ALC. There are options - why can’t I use them?
Not getting us to IBZ on time is going to cost Iberia significantly more money (6 x EU penalty fees, 3 x hotel vouchers, 6-12 unsold seats, etc) than just sticking us on the first MAD - IBZ flight on 6/21. I feel like I’m taking crazy pills.
Called up and am on my 14th HUCA - first rep had a solution but the call dropped 90% of the way through the process. Never been able to get someone again who was helpful, which has only added to the pain.
Options at this point:
1) Keep calling (no hold times at least)
2) Book a cash pay MAD to IBZ on 6/21 with another airline and just no-show my final two Iberia flights and only bring carry-on luggage
3) Try to sort it out with Iberia at checkin in the US or after landing in Madrid
4) Something else
Adding to the issues were plans to check at least one bag, but requesting a short-check with the agent at departure feels risky.
Feel like I’d be entitled to EU passenger bill of rights compensation which could offset the cash pay price, but worried no-showing the MAD to ALC flight might invalidate this.
Any help is greatly appreciated!

2023.06.10 13:05 baltimore-aureole Economics 102 – Do the most expensive political campaigns give us the best government?

Economics 102 – Do the most expensive political campaigns give us the best government?
Photo Above - worlds most expensive film ($500 million) "Jurassic World - Fallen Kingdom". Not shown - the politician who spent double that - $1 billion - to become a first term senator.
Most expensive ever: 2020 election cost $14.4 billion • OpenSecrets
Is there a correlation between how much money politicians spend to get elected, and how well congress governs?
Okay . . . everyone's hand shot up. Even the kid in the back row who only reads the headlines in this forum. Everyone is shouting “Nooo, Miss Landers . . . this isn't ANY relationship at all between the amount of money spent in a campaign, and how good a senator is . . ”
That would have been evident to every cynic. Sorry for even asking. Now here's a better question: “Is there any relationship between how much is spent on political campaigns, and the growth of the US national debt?” Don't overthink this - it's an easy question, too. Why else would I even be trolling people? (See link at top for details on the most expensive campaigns)
It's no secret the national debt has skyrocketed since the Bill Clinton presidency. And even during Bill's administration, it only went down for a year or two. Most years President Clinton also got stuck with budget deficits. Although not as outrageous as Biden, Trump, Obama . . .
So, if someone tells you that 2020 was the most expensive election in US history, that probably comes as no surprise, right? How about if you hear that it was TWICE AS EXPENSIVE as 2016? And that 2016 was more than 2012? And 2012 beat 2008?. And not by just a little. We're talking billions here. If you go back decades before 2008 someone could probably find an exception to this trend. Go look, if you're that kind of person. It won't change my point: ridiculous $14+ Billion political election cycles are both a symptom and a cause of runaway federal budgets.
Senators and House members are ENABLED and ENCOURAGED to vote for out of control budgets, by the huge sums they spent to get elected. What's a $2 trillion budget shortfall this year when your senate seat costs $1 Billion?
Half of you are laughing, and the other are half gasping in disbelief. But yes - nearly $1 Billion was spent in the 2020 Georgia senate race. And no . . those contributions did NOT come from ordinary citizens living in nice towns like Savannah, Athens, and Marietta. The $1 Billion of course came from OUT OF STATE INTERESTS. Contributions to both candidates. Not due to concern that Georgia should have quality representation in congress. This money was unleashed because a few special interest groups were paying VERY close attention to how a single senate seat flipping left or right could affect them. If some special interest group's entire survival is tied to pandemic era stimulus, or picking winners and losers in the energy industry, or “guns”, wouldn't they be incented to pull out all the stops when making political contributions? In a laid back southern state people elsewhere usually don't give two “grits” about?
It wasn't just Georgia. This also happened in North Carolina. South Carolina, Iowa, Arizona, . . .Maine. Yikes - nooo . . . not poor little Maine!
Each of those senate races cost well more than $200 million. Maine had less than 1 million votes cast - way less. That's about $300 per vote. Let that sink in. Georgia was actually WORSE. Even after you account for the larger population and senate runoff election. It took more than $500 per voter to finally make Jon Ossoff a first term senator. Jon was formerly a filmmaker and reporter. $1 billion spent for - and against - him in Georgia! Are we living in the greatest nation on earth, or what?
Back to the main point. Imagine YOU are Jon Ossoff. Your entire life has been spent hobnobbing with film producers who spend hundreds of millions to churn out dreck like the 4th installment of Jurassic World. Or Avengers – age of Dull-tron. And now it just cost YOU $1 billion to call yourself senator. If you're this billion dollar guy, you can only conclude that America is filthy rich, rolling in money, and any harebrained idea in congress should be fully funded. And then break for lunch . ..
Because senators elected with $200 million, $500 million, or billion dollar campaigns more often meet with special interests than with their actual constituents back home. The most expensive senators spend their time in DC or Hollywood or Wall Street raising money. These congressmen have no clue about how ordinary people live.
This is, indeed, the kind of government which the most expensive election in history can buy.

Jackson was a member of the Board of Directors of DARE (‘Drug Abuse Resistance Education’) and he was presented with a t-shirt for which he said:
“Thank you very much. I love you all. Thank you.”
All members of the 'Challengers Boys & Girls Club' were invited to Neverland
1993 - Michael announces that "HTW"s total earnings of $1.25 million, along with his entire Super Bowl XXVII proceeds from that year will be funneled to "Heal L.A.", for the children having suffered from the Los Angeles’ riots at the time.
The Big Brothers of Los Angeles give Jackson a rocking chair made by a woman who made them for President Kennedy and the Pope. Another group of children visiting the ranch get a sneak peak preview of Tom & Jerry: The Movie. The film wasn't scheduled to begin running in theaters until July 30th, but Michael received an advance copy from Joseph Barbera.
1997 - Michael plays the second of two nights at the Amsterdam Arena (now Johan Cruyff Arena) in Amsterdam,Netherlands , to an audience of 50.000.

He paved the way for so many of us, and I will forever remember him in my heart."
2003 - Michael finally gives his deposition in Indianapolis before going to Merville, Indiana
Last month, Jackson he fell ill and was hospitalized before he could be deposed in a lawsuit filed by Gordon Keith (who signed the Jackson 5 to his Gary, Indiana-based Steeltown Records in 1967) and musician Elvy Woodard. The men claim that the Jackson 5 used the name of another Gary band and two of their songs without license.
Jackson’s attorney, Bob Meyer, says the suit has no merit, noting that Michael was only 9 years old at the time.
The deposition took place at a hotel from 11:21 a.m. to 5:10 p.m
“Michael was extremely comfortable today,” he said. “He really surprised me.”
Meanwhile, an attorney for the plaintiffs, Norman Reed, described Jackson’s deportment as “jovial,” though he went on to say that Jackson couldn’t answer every question because certain events in question occurred more than three decades ago
Michael hires Charles Koppleman as his new business adviser.
2005 - Jury Deliberations Day 6
Jurors in the trial will be back again on Monday after ending their first full week of deliberations without reaching a verdict
The jurors asked a number of questions today and also requested to have some testimony read back to them. Judge Melville held at least three meetings with attorneys from each side
Legal experts say the lengthy and complex instructions issued by the Judge may be responsible for the extended deliberations.
"This is a huge, huge celebrity trial, so you can bet that they're going to want to read those jury instructions pretty carefully," said Donna Shestowsky, a law professor at the University of California.
Shari Seidman Diamond, a law professor at Northwestern University, agreed: "Running through these instructions is the use of words that are real words in everyday life that have different legal meanings."
She said that terms such as "attempt," "reasonable" and "conspiracy" have specific meaning in criminal law and "we know that makes instructions harder to deal with."
Diamond said that judges could make jury instructions more palatable but rarely did so as they were more concerned with making sure the instructions were unflawed and would not lead to a reversal on appeal.
Peter Tiersma, a member of the California Judicial Council's task force on criminal jury instructions, said it was easier for a judge to simply copy the text of a legal opinion or of a statute in the instructions.
He said that no matter how dense or incomprehensible the instructions were, "if you changed it, you risked getting it wrong."
As an example, Diamond pointed out that the explanation of 'reasonable doubt' was buried on page 45 of the instructions, which offered little explanation of why jurors should ignore certain pieces of evidence.
About 2,200 journalists received press credentials to cover the Michael Jackson trial, more than the O.J. Simpson and Scott Peterson trials combined.
Major TV networks have committed dozens of staff members and some news organizations have even installed land lines, fearing that the explosion of phone calls following a verdict could jam the region's cell phone networks.
Reporters from every continent except Antarctica are covering the story, a reminder that Michael's popularity remains intense outside the US. News organizations from more than 30 countries were represented
"The appetite for Michael Jackson is insatiable," said Graeme Massie, who has covered the trial for Splash, a British news agency. "In the U.S., people may believe that Jackson's star has fallen, but in Europe it still shines brightly."
The case is being closely watched in Japan where they are thinking of moving to a jury system.
"People in Japan are interested in the King of Pop, but they also want to know how the jury will treat celebrities," said Wataru Ezaki, who works for a Japanese news organization in Southern California. "They want to see if jurors can be fair. It's a very unique case."
Deliberations will resume Monday morning at 8:30 a.m.
2009 - AllGood Entertainment Inc. filed a $40 million lawsuit against Michael claiming breach of contract and fraud in an attempt to stop Jackson from performing in London. The New Jersey-based company filed the suit in federal court in New York stating that it signed a deal with Jackson's manager, Frank DiLeo for a pay per view reunion concert with the other Jackson siblings
2013 - Jackson v AEG Trial Day 26
Katherine Jackson was at court for the morning session
Randy Phillips Testimony
Jackson direct
Panish showed a June 20th email from Tim Leiweke (CEO of AEG) to Dan Beckerman (CFO/COO of AEG) in which Beckerman described Phillips as jittery:
"Trouble with Michael. Big trouble."
Beckerman responded:
"I figured something might be wrong given how jittery Randy has been this week. Is it "pre-show nerves" bad or "get a straight jacket/call our insurance carrier" bad?"
Phillips said he was not jittery, but concerned with the show. Jittery meaning shaking and he said he doesn't think that's how he was.
Phillips said Dr. Murray receiving $150k per month being the cause of Michael's sickness in June of 2009 never crossed his mind
Phillips said he did not recall what was discussed in a phone conversation with Murray. In his video deposition that was shown to the jury, Phillips first said the conversation lasted three minutes. He was shown phone records that showed it lasted 25 minutes. Phone records show Phillips had a 25 minute phone call with Conrad Murray after Kenny Ortega's emails on June 20, 2009. Phillips said he didn't think the call lasted that long, doesn't recall what they talked about. "It's very possible I might have even read him these emails," Phillips testified, referring to the "Trouble at the Front" chain. "I would not have discussed his health other than what it was in the content of the emails"
Phillips said everyone in the This Is It production got a list with everyone's phone numbers. He doesn't know how Dr. Murray got the list. Phillips was asking about how Conrad Murray got his home phone number. He initially said it might have been on a list given to tour personnel. Phillips then said that Murray may have gotten it from Jackson's former manager, Frank Dileo. Phillips testified that Dr. Murray called his home number. Panish showed picture of the business card Phillips gave Dr. Murray with his cell number on the back. The card was found in the doctor's car.
Panish then asked Phillips about an email he sent director Kenny Ortega, telling him Murray was "unbiased and ethical", the email serves as Phillips' best recollection of his conversation with Dr. Murray. This morning, Panish frequently asked Randy Phillips whether he was truthful with Ortega.
Panish: "Did you make that up and lie to Mr. Ortega?"
Phillips: "No, I don't lie"
Panish talked about email Phillips wrote to Ortega on Jun 20:
"Kenny, it's critical that neither you, me or anyone else around this show become amateur psychiatrist or physicians. I had a lengthy conversation with Dr. Murray, who I'm gaining immense respect for as I get to deal with him more. He said that Michael is not only physically equipped to perform and, that discouraging him to, will hasten his decline instead of stopping it. Dr. Murray also reiterated that he's mentally able to and was speaking to me from the house where he has spent the morning with Michael. This doctor is extremely successful (we check everyone out) and does not need this gig so he is totally unbiased and ethical. It is critical we surround Michael with love and support and listen to how he wants to get ready for July 13th... You cannot imagine the harm and ramifications of stopping this show now. It would far outweigh "calling this game in the 7th inning". I'm not just talking about AEG's interests here, but the myriad of stuff/lawsuits swirling around Michael that I crisis manage every day and also his well-being. I am meeting with him today at 4p at the Forum. Please stay steady. Enough alarms have sounded. It is time to out out the fire, not burning the building down. Sorry for all the analogies. Randy"
Phillips said he thought Dr. Murray was extremely successful based on the clinics he had and business he would've to close to go on tour.
Phillips: "It was an assumption I made"
Panish: "And that was not true, correct?"
Phillips: "In retrospect, that's correct"
As to the "we check everyone out" reference in the email, Panish asked if that was a true statement or untrue.
Phillips: "It's not, it's hard to say yes or no on that. It is not true because everyone would imply everyone"
Panish: "'We check everyone out'" is a false statement you wrote to Mr. Ortega, correct?"
Phillips: "In retrospect, yes"
Panish asked about the reference "he doesn't need the gig". "I made another assumption based on the information I had," Phillips explained, "I didn't have any basis to say he was unbiased and ethical"
Panish used the email to try to show that 3 people _ Ortega, Murray and John Hougdahl _ were warning Phillips about Jackson's health. Phillips said Murray didn't agree with the assessments of Michael's health by Ortega and Hougdahl (the tour production manager). After multiple questions, Phillips said many of the statements in the email about Murray weren't true. Those statements included that AEG Live checked everyone out, and that Murray was an accomplished doctor who was unbiased and ethical. "At the time, I thought it was the truth", Phillips said of the above statements
Phillips testified he wrote email to Sony exec asking her to remind him to tell her where Dr Murray was the night he was to be caring for Michael. Judge only allowed plaintiffs' attorney to say it was a social establishment, but the place was a strip club
Panish then asked Phillips about the suggestion that Jackson needed a psychiatrist. Phillips confirmed what he said last week -- he never consulted a psychiatrist. He said today it wouldn't have been appropriate. As to having a mental health professional, "no one brought a psychiatrist," Phillips said, "because Michael didn't need one"
Phillips testified he had conflicting information coming from Dr. Murray and Kenny Ortega regarding Michael. Panish pressed Phillips about the fact that he sent completely opposite emails to Ortega and AEG high ups. "It was because they were sent for different purposes," Phillips explained. Of the statements to Ortega, Phillips told the jury:
"I just wanted to calm things down until we had this meeting"
Before the morning break, Panish showed some of the emails he showed Phillips last week. Panish only had his copy, which had notes on it. Panish gave Phillips his annotated version of the email, but Phillips refused to look at them. Flipped them over so he couldn't see them. "I don't want to help you with your case", Phillips said of reviewing Panish's annotated copies of the emails. That brought some laughter. Phillips was ultimately given a clean copy of the emails, provided by his defense lawyers.
Phillips said he remembers the meeting on June 20th lasted at least an hour. Dr. Murray and Phillips were sitting on one couch, Michael was on a bench and Ortega on another couch. In his deposition, Phillips said Ortega talked about Michael's physical and mental status. On the stand today, Phillips explained Ortega did very little talking in the meeting. "He addressed Michael coming to rehearsals. I do not believe he talked about Michael's physical condition and mental state. Dr. Murray did most of the talking," Phillips testified.
Panish pressured Phillips about him changing the testimony. "My memory is getting better about the events of four years ago," Phillips said. "The purpose of the meeting was to find out what was happening with Michael because of the events on the 19th"
Panish: "Did Mr. Ortega say he was concerned Michael was not getting enough sleep?"
Phillips: "I don't remember if he asked that question. I know he asked about the food, but I'm not sure if he asked about the sleep"
Panish: "Dr. Murray contradicted what Ortega said in the email, correct, sir?"
Phillips: "Yes, Dr. Murray, said there wasn't anything wrong with Michael. Michael said there wasn't anything wrong with Michael. I don't know if there was a mental problem"
Without getting into details, Phillips said Ortega and Murray "were a little combative" at the meeting. Phillips said Murray reassured everyone that Jackson's health was fine. He said Jackson also assured them nothing was wrong with him. He said Murray told the group that Jackson may have had the flu, or some similar ailment. He said Jackson's health was discussed. Phillips said he couldn't recall whether Jackson's sleep issues were discussed. A portion of Randy Phillips' deposition was played in which he said sleep issues were discussed at the June 20, 2009 meeting
The meeting happened in the afternoon, Phillips said. Panish asked if Michael was shaking in that meeting. Phillips said "No, not at all" A vase was broken in one of the production meetings, Phillips explained. He said Frank Dileo, Paul Gongaware & himself were present. Phillips said he doesn't know who broke the vase, but he thinks it may have been Frank DiLeo. Phillips denied a vase was broken during the June 20th meeting at Michael's house.
Panish: "Did you have a meeting with Michael where you threatened to pull the plug and take everything he had?"
Phillips: "No"
Panish: "Did you tell him he would lose everything, including his children, if the show didn't happen?"
Phillips:"That's ridiculous, no"
Phillips said Michael was a phenomenal father & denied ever saying to anyone at the meeting that Michael was on skid row or going to become homeless.
Panish: "Did you ever tell Michael you were paying for his toilet paper?"
Phillips: "No"
Phillips denied that Murray said during the June 20th meeting that he "couldn't take it anymore." Phillips denied that Murray's contract was discussed at the meeting, saying that would have been inappropriate.
Phillips was also again asked about emails a couple of AEG executives (former CEO Tim Leiweke and Dan Beckerman) traded about him. The email described Randy Phillips as jittery, and alluded to either him or Jackson having a "mental breakdown." Phillips denied he was having a mental breakdown, and said he didn't want to put words in the other executives' mouths. In the deposition played to the jury, Tim Leiweke said the reference to "mental breakdown" in the email could've been to Randy Phillips not Michael. Panish played depo of Dan Beckerman, in which he said he didn't recall what prompted him to say Phillips was jittery.
Panish: "Did you think that Michael needed a straight jacket?"
Phillips: "It was a generic comment"
Phillips said it was a question of "stage fright and the show will go on" or "I can't do this let's cancel" scenario.
Panish: "Do you think Michael needed a straight jacket?"
Phillips: "No, I don't think Michael needed a straight jacket"
Regarding the straight jacket email, Phillips said the way he read it he can't tell if it was referring to him or Michael. Panish pointed out that insurance was only if Michael had a break down, not Phillips. Thus, the email must've referred to Michael
Questioning then moved back to the June 20th meeting, with Phillips describing Murray as "demonstrative" toward director Kenny Ortega. Phillips said Murray's message to Ortega was essentially "stay in your lane" and not to interfere with medical issues. "The meeting got a little bit heated when Dr. Murray was admonishing Kenny," Phillips recalled, but said hostile is too harsh of a word. Phillips said lack of sleep was discussed in the June 20th meeting, but wasn't the main focus. Phillips said the reason of the meeting was to find out what happened in the night before, what was the issue and also Michael missing rehearsals. Phillips said Michael had the best two rehearsals after the June 20th meeting. "Kenny told Michael to take the next two days off, spend some time with the kids," Phillips testified.
Phillips was then asked about emails he sent to Leiweke, others, about the results of the June 20th meeting at Jackson's house. This was after Jackson's attorney, John Branca, earlier in the day had suggested a counselor to work with Jackson. Phillips email:
"Anyway, things are not as bleak as Kenny's emails. John, now is not the right time to introduce a new person into his life"
After this email is when Phillips made the "badgering" comment to Panish that prompted Judge Palazuelos' admonition to him.
Suddenly, judge decides to take a break at 2:24 pm and sends the jury out of the courtroom. Outside the presence of the jurors, judge admonished Phillips for not answering the questions asked. "Mr. Phillips you need to answer questions," said Judge Yvette Palazuelos, frustrated. "Lawyers are trying to getting the answers." Judge told Phillips that arguing with the lawyers isn't really going to help his case, it will just lengthen his testimony. She noted his testimony is taking much longer than expected, and at this pace he will be here for another week. Phillips told the judge he's just trying not to say the wrong things or be caught in tricky questions. Judge: "It seems like they are pretty straight forward questions, but when you offer info, it may not be good for you"
AEG's attorney Jessica Bina defends Phillips saying the questions are compound, but that she believes he's trying to answer the questions. Panish said he wants to finish today, that he hasn't argued with the witness or judge. "I really tried hard, for me, it's hard!" Panish said. Phillips said he understood and wants to go back to work as well. Promised to be better.
Phillips said the email he wrote saying "this guy is trying to concern me" was referring to Kenny Ortega. "I had two concerns: wanted Kenny to be open minded until the meeting and I didn't want Kenny to quit," Phillips explained. At this point they were about $30 million plus in advance, Panish said. Phillips said it was about $28 million, which was a lot of money.
Email on 3/13/09 from Leiweke to Phillips:
"Phil (Anschutz) can be such a paranoid scrooge. He thinks he's smarter than everyone"
After a break and admonition, Phillips testified about some of his concerns surrounding the show.He said he was concerned about Ortega. Phillips said he was concerned that Ortega as getting into an "entrenched position" regarding Jackson's health and rehearsals.
"I was also quite concerned that Kenny would throw up his hands in the air and quit."
The CEO was talking directly to the jury. Phillips said again that his concern with Ortega was that he wasn't going into the meeting with an open mind and that he was going to quit. Panish played Phillips deposition where he said he didn't remember what he was concerned about regarding Ortega. "I think my answer today is clarification," Phillips said, adding he did not change his testimony. Panish questioned whether his description was something he "just remembered right now." Phillips responded, "I'm remembering a lot of things now." Panish shot back that Phillips hadn't remembered many things during his deposition.
In his depo, played to the jury, Phillips said there were no discussions on June 20th about Michael taking a couple of days off. However, in court today, Phillips testified Ortega suggested that he take two days off
After the June 20th meeting, Jackson took two days off and resumed rehearsals. At that point, Phillips began working out of Staples Center. Phillips said one of the changes to come out of the June 20th meeting was that he would be at Staples, looking in on rehearsals.
Phillips was also shown an email from his assistant, looking for a physical therapist for Jackson on June 22, 2009
At this point, Phillips was asked about Arnold Klein. He was shown a June 23rd email from Jackson's business manager Michael Kane. Kane:
"On the list of doctors that will help get (us) from today to the opening night, where does Arnold Klein stand on the list?"
Phillips responded about Klein:
"He scares us to death because he is shooting him up with something"
Kane responded:
"Well since we owe him $48k and he wants payment maybe I should stop paying him and he'll stop shooting him up. I have the details of what he is doing"
Phillips told jurors the email was a response to a $48,000 bill that Jackson's manager received for the treatments by Dr. Arnold Klein. The treatments included numerous shots of cosmetic drugs such as Restalyne and botox, as well as other unidentified intramuscular shots, Phillips said, citing the bill. Phillips said he maintains his position that he didn't know what, if anything, any doctor was giving Michael.
Phillips was asked about Jackson's rehearsals on June 23 and 24. He said he couldn't remember which songs were performed which day. Phillips said he watched them in its entirety, which lasted about 3 hours. He said Michael was engaged about an hour and a half to two hours.
Panish: "Michael never did the whole show, did he, sir?"
Phillips: "No, he wouldn't have, they were not ready for that"
Panish: "Was Michael cold on the 23rd?"
Phillips: "I don't remember"
Panish: "Did you ever see Michael walking around in blankets?"
Phillips: "It's possible, because the place was freezing. But I don't remember"
On 6/25/09 the insurance broker wrote to Dr. Murray at 12:54:15 pm, probably London time (approximately 5am LA time):
" We are dealing with a matter of great importance and your urgent attention would be greatly appreciated"
The email talked about getting Michael's medical records. Phillips said he learned from the media that Dr. Murray had been treating Michael since 2006.
Panish: "This is Dr. Murray doing something to help AEG get insurance, fair enough?"
Phillips: "Fair enough"
On 8/18/09 Phillips wrote email to Michael Roth:
"I think I know what Michael died of and this would exonerate Conrad"
Lionel Richie's ex-wife Brenda called Philips and said Michael died of a combination of other drugs and Propofol. Phillips said he never told police, the DA or Dr. Murray's attorneys about it because he thought the info was not reliable.
Panish: "Did you want Dr. Murray to get exonerated?"
Phillips: "I'd always want an innocent man not to get convicted"
Panish played video of Phillips' deposition where he said he didn't remember what the information was but his memory has been refreshed
Judge then adjourned session for the day. Trial resumes tomorrow morning. Panish said he has one more hour of questioning. The attorneys estimated Phillips will be done testifying by Wednesday afternoon

2023.06.10 13:02 FamiliarEnthusiasm87 Why are you folks so islamophobic?

I grew up in a pretty homophobic country, but went to college in a top college in US so did not come across gay islamophobes. I am guessing the crowd was quite educated and liberal so maybe that had something to do with it. One year into the real world, I have realized that LGBT community is quite islamophobic and out of touch with the sad realities of this world. This islamophobia spills over into anti-immigrant and xenophobic sentiments and that is what really annoys me.
  1. Areas which comprise homophobic islamic countries right now were quite LGBT friendly until colonial times. There are so many scholars who have studied how european colonizers introduced laws that delegitimize indigiounoes sexualities in colonies across the world. So before you say shit about how some muslim parents protesting against queer education is somehow worse than right-wing anti-lgbt people and how that is going to collapse the european society, acknowledge that your ancestors are direct cause of suffering of millions of people in the 'third world'. Return the stolen artifacts in your art and history museums, send back kleptocrats who invest in your palaces (Nawaz sharif), and think about what positive aspects immigrants are contributing to your life (NHS runs on doctors from around the world).
  2. Not every person in the islamic countries are homophobic. Infact, there are quite vibrant gay communities in a lot of these country's metropoles. Stop denying their existence just because you would rather see europe as center of liberated gays. I am not saying that persecution is not common. Most states do not really persecute anymore because they know they would get slapped with sanctions. The bigger issue is equal rights and protections from third party problems. Most muslim people are normal humans who are more concerned with going on with their lives than hunting down gays. Someone's values depends on how much education, exposure to globalized values of liberalism etc they have come across. A lot of that depends on resources and ask any history economist(I am one), and they would tell you that colonization did lead to the current wealth disparities between Asia\North Africa and Europe that did not historically exist until 1860s(when a 25 year long el nino weather pattern combined with uncaring european rulers resulted in mass die-offs, say sorry). If Europe and US used to officially persecute its gays until a few decades after world war 2 , you cannot expect the islamic countries to change overnight just because some john in Birmingham decided that islam is the most homophobic religion on the planet. Societies change over time. If you feel bad for the muslim gays in islamic countries, volunteer at refugee agencies or join political movements to pressure the governments in these countries to provide equal rights and protections to lgbt people. Circle jerking on greatness of the secular european state is not really helping anyone, it is alienting people.
  3. Climate change is real and it is affecting communities in tropics and subtropics a lot more than developed countries in global north. As such, immigration is a life or death question for humans in those countries. If Europe is willing to take in Russians (alot of whom do not ascribe to european liberal values either and tend to be far less educated than average high school graduate in europe, Russians have called me faggot to my face more than any muslim ever has) and Ukrainians, then closing borders on desperate people fleeing lands they cannot live on anymore due to YOUR and your parent's generation's CO2 emissions is pretty immoral. I do not care if they are homophobic as long as they do not hurt anyone. Maybe europe should work on integrating its immigrant communities better instead of otherising them and letting them be abused. And a lot of recent migrants to Europe are not necessarily muslims. Christian syrians and africans are equally abused by the system.

2023.06.10 13:01 Brilliant-Ant-2001 What was you best vengance on a cheater gf/bf?

It's something very personal on cheating. Everyone is reacting in different way. I can tell you may way to handle it. My way is revenge. I was in a relathionship with a girl that was cheating on me(she was 22 at the time and ne 24) and i made the best revenge that I could do. Since i have luck that I was born in a very rich family i have booked a 2 weeks vacation with my ex in dubai and I had a reservation in a 5 star hotel for 2 people. One for my ex and one for his side boyfriend and the night when we arrived i took all my stuff and went back to home and blocked my credit card. The day after at the morning the other boyfriend arrived and they was surprised to see each other and they have seen on the bed the images of both making out and kissing. And 1 hour after the receptionist come to their room to ask them how the are gonna pay since the credit card was blocked. They sent me,both, like 300 texts and gave me like 90 calls for asking to pay for them and then they will explain me but I don't replied to nothing and then 2 days later they broke up and she is still trying to get me back with calls and texts. P.S. i don't block her because I like to see on whitch point people can humiliate themselves. So since you got my story revenge,for me, is the best way and you can see how people con humiliate themselves ahahah

2023.06.10 12:58 jaswanthjashu Meet up idea!

Hey guys,
I have good idea regarding reddit meet ups. Instead of meeting at hotel or place every month, can we do meet up with social activity.
We can choose a good activity each month and work for it by meeting up there...
What do you guys think? We can post about activity we did in the sub and it will helpful to us in interaction with sub members Better way and also utilise this time for social welfare.
Please don't mind if this is not a good idea.

2023.06.10 12:58 Big_Attempt_5326 Where’s the Rave, North Melbourne?

Moved to North Melbourne about 6 months ago. Not really familiar with the city. Can anyone tell me what/where the whomp whomp is coming from? Thought it was my neighbors but outside now and the techno is definitely blowing in on the wind - anyone know the source? Don’t care, not loud enough to bother anyone, haven’t been to a party in years, just hate not knowing and too old to wander down streets at night trying to find the door to the secret party….
