2023.06.10 05:31 __descend To all UP business graduates...

Any thoughts? I certainly have no any idea which school would be best for a business degree.
To all UP business graduates, what do you think about UP's curriculum? I heard po hindi maayos curriculum sa business. Can someone pls elaborate what do they mean about "hindi maayos"? Was it the professors po ba? Do most of them just let their students learn the materials by themselves bc no spoon-feed? Ha??? I want to maximize what I'll study in college so much.
"UP has quality education" Sounds pretty vague to me. I'm more curious kung 1st year, "ah we will be having defense, internships. Kaya all goods" Tas sa professors, they would help me test my skills, not just my test scores. If this is true, paano ittest skills? ex. "ah sa discussion iba sa ibang schools bc UP students usually have indiv recitation". Answers like that are what I'm looking for po. Could any of you share what skills that can only be taught in UP? In terms of professors, company connections, environment, or any sides that I should consider po.
Additional, will you consider studying in DLSU, top business school? If so why? may skill set ba sa DLSU na you think wala sa UP?
After college naman. Some would assert that UP tend to be free pass for employment. Is this true po? Kahit hindi part ng top graduates, naddispatch pa rin ng companies? If so, how many months did it take to land on a job?
About me naman, idk drop ko na lang din. What prevents me to study in UP: - No no if mentally fragile daw. Bakit? Is it bc maraming readings? Ipapasang outputs? Inconsiderate profs? Ano nagpapahirap? Tas I thought were all of this necessary in studying? Para namang ano e. Mag-aaral pa lang, lapit na agad sa binggit ni kamatayan. - Baka DLSU has better educ system? (baka lang naman). Hassle daw enrollment sa subjects in UP kaya iba late grumaduate. Tas I was considering the employment din after college. - Students mindset: either to sink or swim. Ano roles ng profs?
Why I consider studying in UP: - Free electives. Ang cool lang kasi I can still learn other subs aside from business. Tho, not sure if susumpain kong subject lang din yung electives tas decide na just focus on my majors. - Free tuition

2023.06.10 02:55 rdmiyaw Finally ending this "looking for" season. I guess online thingy doesn't work for me. Doon na lang talaga ako sa organic way. Malawak pa ang mundo. Hindi pa rin naman nagkakaubusan ng lalaki.

Ang sarap pala talaga sa pakiramdam n'ong payapa ka on your own, 'no? Masaya ka for other people na committed na pero mas kuntento kang nagpo-focus sa sarili at sa pamilya.
Whenever we hearead heartbreaking stories online or kahit sa mga kakilala natin... mas nakikita natin 'yong value ng pagpapahalaga sa sarili. Hanggang sa unti-unti nating nararamdamang hindi natin kailangan ng ibang tao para mapasaya tayo kasi tayo mismo ang makakagawa n'on. Happiness comes from within, ika nga.
And today... I'm choosing happiness. Actually, hindi lang today pero palagi naman na. Simula 2023, kita ko na ang mga good changes sa akin. Huhu. Goal ko ay maging consistent sa part na iyon.
Isa sa mga ginawa ko lately ay ang pagde-delete ng Bumble app. I deleted my Bumble account because I won't be needing that dating app anymore. Hindi rin naman talaga ako active doon kasi tamad akong humarot. Lol. Ewan ko nga kung bakit sinubukan ko pa iyon kahit alam kong ang daming loko-loko roon.
Itong Reddit naman, magiging online diary ko na lang talaga. Hindi ko na gagamitin pang-usap sa mga temporary people. Ayaw ko nang makipagkilala nang paulit-ulit, so yeah... unavailable na talaga ako sa getting-to-know or kahit small talk na hindi naman din magtatagal o imposibleng mag-level up.
Makapaghihintay nga naman kasi ang love life. Kaya doon muna ako ulit sa growth and development ko. Kapag doon ko inilaan ang time and effort ko, wala akong lugi. Hindi sayang at merong patutunguhan. Laging may panalo. Kumbaga, may ROI.
Noong nasa relasyon ako dati, hindi ko na-maximize ang skills ko. Hindi ko nailabas ang best version ko (careerwise). Nagpokus ako sa "amin" which is beri wrong. Sa sobrang pagmamahal ko, ako 'yong naging talunan. So hindi na ako babalik sa gano'ng situation.
Ngayon, isinasara ko na muna ang pintuan para sa mga temporary people. Bubuksan ko na lang ulit kapag may nakilala ako sa personal na tatanggapin ako mula ulo mukhang paa. Cheret! Haha. Basta, I'll find him soon... or maybe not? Lol. Kakalma muna ako while working on myself. 💅

2023.06.10 02:24 Fab_enigma07 Early Morning thoughts

It’s weekend. It’s nice to sleep in. I want to go back to sleep real bad and to extend my weekend. Kasi next week, balik na sa totoong buhay na naman.
My thought just wandered. How nice would it be to have someone with you to cuddle with in this medyo cold morning. Just caressing yours or their back. Or interlock legs and thighs with. (Octopus yan?)
Or to cook breakfast for, to have coffee with. Just sit in silence while you read a book, news paper or what not. Or to just hold their hands, head on their shoulder while watching the sun rise.
Or to walk or jog with under this not so tirik na araw pa. Tapos tambay lang sandali. To take a shower with after.
Sigh.
(Pic not related. It’s sunset)

2023.06.10 01:53 L0rdLegender KENGAN FIGHTERS WIN/LOSS RECORDS MEGA THREAD

I have read Kengan Asura 4 times and Kengan Omega twice two do this.
A few important notes before beginning:
  1. You should save this thread, as it will be live updated every Wednesday with every Kengan Omega chapter.
  2. Every character that shows up must be named.
  3. The fight cannot have just been mentioned, but must be shown for at least one panel, even if just as as memory (example: Kanoh vs Wakatsuki was shown for 1 panel, so it counts; Gozo vs Kokuro does not count as Kengan omega has never shown even a single panel of the fight)
  4. Every character must have 3 CONCLUSIVE fights against fighters who fit the first 2 rules in order to be added.
  5. Fights that are inconclusive include: ties or fights where both fighters agree to draw (example: Kuroki vs Rolon), fights that are interrupted early (Example: Akoya vs Nicholas, this includes even if one side clearly has the advantage), sparring matches (example: Ohma vs Kaneda; unless the spar eventually goes out of control and turns into a real fight, example: Cosmo vs Anderson Arona), and fights where there are multiple people, barring specifically if it is 1 fighter vs multiple fighters and the single fighter wins, in which case they will be given credit for defeating everyone they beat.
  6. The "Edward Wu incident" will not be included, as it is too confusing to determine what constitutes a win and a loss in that fight, and the entire situation was just overall a mess.
  7. The purpose of this thread is to determine who is narratively at what rank and what their purpose is in the story. From these records you can better grasp who is a true jobber, a top level jobber, a mid tier character, a top level character, etc. This is primarily decided by 3 things: Their overall record, their record against characters who show up on the list (because these are the more important characters to the story typically), and their record against characters on the list whom have winning normal records (what typically constitutes an extremely strong win, making a character a top tier).
  8. Kiryu Setsunna's recollection of the past events between Ohma, Tiger Niko, Ohma's Niko and himself will be excluded, as they are dubious at best. I will allow him killing Taira Genzan, however.

2023.06.09 22:40 alwayscuriouszz Should I tell her bf and kabit?

Please don't post this on any socmed and if you think this is familiar bahala just read on but don't share.
Ilang days ko na ata tong iniisip and I'm not sure if it's a good idea to seek advice from reddit but I would appreciate response and advice from people na galing din sa situation ko na to.
So I have an office friend and matagal na sila ng bf nya. Magkalive in sila for quite some time now. Now, itong officemate ko may mga needs sya na di kayang mabigay ng bf nya na lagi nyang hinahanap sa iba. Well provided sya ng bf nya pagdating sa financial security pati mga kelangan sa bahay, kaya di din nya kayang hiwalayan ng basta basta. Samantalang yung mga kabit nya is not so well-off pero yung "other needs" nya is nabibigay.
Now, pangalawang kabit nya na to. Nung sa unang kabit todo advice pa kami sa kanya na itigil na nya or hiwalayan nya na yung bf nya. Grabe pagtitimpi namin nun gustong gusto na namin sabihin sa bf nya para he's aware of the situation kasi nameet nadin naman namin sya before. Pero hinayaan namin sya na she decide what she wants to do hoping na what she'll choose would be the right one.
Unfortunately, although tinigil nya nga si kabit # 1 dahil sobrang toxic na nga nila, nagkaroon naman sya ng kabit #2. Ito si kabit#2 akala nya wala na sila nung bf nya. Kilala kasi bf nya sa buong office kahit di tagadun kasi medyo mataas na position from a famous company and very public sila noon sa socmed. Akala sa buong office wala na sila ng bf nya kaya shiniship na sya dun sa kabit #2, pero til now dun padin sya nakatira sa bf nya. Kala din ni ate girl na walang idea office about kabit#1 but girl is she so wrong. In Denial padin ata sya sa rep nya sa office na medj makalat/malandi kaya di pa tumigil.
Madami pang dirty deets but I won't share it anymore kasi baka may makakilala na sa kanya dito lol.
So my questions is tama ba na bigyan namin sya ng deadline to move out and breakup with the boyfriend or sasabihin namin sa bf nya anong pinagggawagawa nya.
Balak ko din actually sabihin sa kabit#2 na nakalive in padin sya sa bf nya pero baka kasi nabrief na sya ni Ate mo ghorl to the pt na baka ituloy padin nila ang deeds katulad nung kabit#1 . Although sabi nya housemates nalang daw sila ng bf nya pero it's still wrong to live sa ex mo and enjoy the same benefit ng pagiging gf pero iba na pala nilalandi mo.
We don't want to be enablers and this has got to stop. Pagod na kaming idefend sya for the wrong reasons and to be tagged as friend ng cheater at hinahayaan sya to do as she pleases.

2023.06.09 22:23 toporag27 EDS Musicians what are your favorite tips and tricks for playing/singing w minimal cost to your body?

I’d like to make a running list. Here are some of mine:
General: - use light weight smaller instruments, particularly kids instruments. They are versatile. You can adapt them to different situations like lying down, sitting in a wheel chair, or being on the move. And rich musician parents often get their kids nice ½ or ¾ size instruments with good construction then sell them for cheap or give them away on places like Craigslist or Facebook marketplace when their kid fails to pick up the hobby. - find a good occupational therapist (OT) and or pain doctor to help you with maximizing your correct posture and assist with adaptations including finger splints in the case of the former, and treat pain and recommend appropriate treatment for minor overuse injuries in the case of the latter.
Guitar: - oval 8 splints to start followed by custom silver ring splints ordered by an OT if possible - using small, thin necked, ¾ -½ size guitars that are easy to hold and lightweight so even when I can only play lying down it’s not too heavy - a spica thumb& wrist splint for each arm, use them when my carpel tunnel is acting up and I’m not playing (I get directions abt when & how to use these from my pain doctor & pt, ideally you should too bc different ppl have different needs) - practice economy of chording positions & transitions, work slow and use as little force in the fretboard as possible to not waste my energy or cause stress to my joints - careful positioning & alignment of my wrist, shoulders, arms and neck. Keep strumming wrist straight and pay attention to fretboard angle to minimize awkward angles of my fretting wrist - when you have neck instability: use prism or horizontal reading glasses to keep your neck straight while still looking down at your playing so as to avoid aggravating your neck and potentially causing migraine
Singing: - relax my jaw but also be careful not to hyper extend it when opening wide for resonance. Practice in the mirror and try to distinguish a normal range of motion of the tmj from abnormal - don’t give up on singing if you can’t stand up. There are ways to sing seated or even lying down. You might have to adapt a little, like prop up your upper body slightly or lay on one side or even get used to using a different amount of force & technique to sing from your diaphragm but it is possible. - use tmj ice packs for when you overdo and trigger jaw/facial/head pain

2023.06.09 20:37 cocoacowstout Is there a possible way to ask someone if they have been giving you a negative reference/not recommending you? Or is that a bad idea.

Last year I was an Office PA on a smaller budget indie feature, it was my first proper film job. It was going really well, ya know, I was there 20 minutes early making the coffee when everyone came in type of thing. Till about halfway through, the OG coordinator left to manage another feature.
A week after the new coordinator came in, I got a call that one of my best friends had been killed. I was in a shock for a while, I considered the 60 hr weeks a welcome distraction for a bit, but as time it went on I was kind of running aground. I was happy to go on long drives for pickups because I could listen to sad music and grieve.
There were some weird office dynamics as well, it was just me, the prod. secretary and PC in the office. The secretary, who I was initially friends with, ended up kind of turning on me and throwing me under the bus to bond with the new coordinator. The producers’ assistant told me they were laughing once and wondering if I actually had any strengths.
Meanwhile other members of the production were saying they wish they could clone me and have a few copies running around because I can do everything/anything. But blah blah feelings, it stung a bit extra due to the loss of my friend.
But being in this environment, I never told anyone what had happened with my friend. It was so intense and personal, I don’t know, it seemed like no one would understand or I couldn’t open that can of worms.
Needless to say I didn’t have the same focus, didn’t always communicate updates effectively. Let my feelings towards the office dynamic get to me a bit. I guess on the other side I found out 6 months later the PC was coming off a kind of rough/high pressure project across the country. The coordinator has hit me up once or twice when they needed someone to drive a box truck or a heavy load in/out. We are getting coffee next week, and I was planning on sharing what happened to my friend during that time.
I’ve been up for just a couple office PA things since, I don’t really enjoy it as much vs set PA but work is work. And they haven’t gone my way. Which could be anything, but I know everyone knows everyone so a quick text that, oh he’s not very good, can torpedo things quickly. So, film industry of greater LA, anyway to probe if I’ve been getting a negative reference? Is getting coffee a good sign?
Thanks for reading if you made it here.

2023.06.09 19:53 BakedShef Fallout 4 Build Comparison (10 Luck vs Balanced ; both very hard, with no mods enabled)

I was originally going to get the luck build to the same level as my balanced build, which is 69, but I don’t even see a point anymore the luck is way more overpowered. For me, it obviously wins.
Lucky LVL 54
S : 1 (12 w/ Power Armor)
P : 5
E : 3
C : 7
I : 7
A : 5
L : 11
Skills : Rifleman 3 - Locksmith 3 - Life Giver 3 - Local Leader 2 - Medic 2 - Gun Nut 4 - Science 4 - Gunslinger 4 - Action Boy 3 - Scrounger 3 - Idiot Savant 3 - Better Criticals 3 - Critical Banker 3 - Grim Reapers Sprint 3 - Four Leaf Clover 3 - Ricochet 1
HP : 398 - AP : 115 - (time to recharge 6 seconds) Dam R : 0 (w/ Power Armor 920) - Energy R : 0 (w/ PA 670) - Rad R : 1000 (w/ PA 1050) - Carry Weight : 210 (322 w/ PA) -
Primary Weapons - Kellogg’s Pistol (refill AP on critical) - .50 Sniper Rifle (unlimited ammo capacity legendary)
MISC Game Time : 2 days 5 hours - Caps Found : 27,865 - Stimpacks Used : 154 - Radaway Used : 26 - Critical Strikes : 800 - Total Kills : 1,779
Balanced LVL 69
S : 7 (12 with power armor)
P : 5
E : 6
C : 6
I : 6
A : 3
L : 6
(Okay so technically it’s not balanced but it’s mostly balanced)
Skills : Armorer 3 - Strong Back 2 - Pickpocket 4 - Rifleman 5 - Locksmith 3 - Toughness 4 - Life Giver 3 - Aquaboy 1 - Rad Resistant 1 - Cap Collector 2 - Lone Wanderer 4 - Local Leader 2 - Gun Nut 4 - Science 4 - Gunslinger 5 - Commando 5 - Sneak 4 - Fortune Finder 2 - Scrounger 4 -
HP : 534 — AP : 120 (time to recharge 8 seconds) — Dam R : 204 (w/ Power Armor 1550) — Energy R : 163 (w/ PA 1140) — Rad R : 75 (w/ PA 910) — Carry Weight : 420 (w/ PA 520) —
Primary Weapons .44 Western Revolver (unlimited ammo capacity legendary) Radium Rifle (15dam explosive legendary) Shotgun (15dam incendiary legendary)
MISC Game Time : 4 days 15 hours Caps Found : 71,318 Stimpacks Used : 24 Radaway Used : 18 Total Kills : 3879 (including people, robots, synths, animals, creatures and turrets) Critical Strikes : 233
Now that the builds are out of the way, allow me to explain. On paper, it looks like the balanced build would be a better character to run all around, but honestly, no. I used almost 6.5x as many Stimpacks on my luck build, but it honestly is not a big deal. I find them fucking everywhere, I have so many that I’ve been just selling anything over 50 since before level 20 and I haven’t dropped below that ever since. So it really doesn’t make any difference other than having to use them more frequently. As for the Radaway, I used 90% of them in earlier levels, I got sick of it and I was taking hella damage anyway so I started just using the hazmat suit, barely used any at all in the last 25 levels.
With the balanced build, I kill like 1 in 16 people with a critical hit, if that critical kills them. Most of them are just extra damage output, it takes me an average of a 2 or 3 full magazines no matter what gun I’m using to kill them (talking legendary enemies here). With the luck build, half of the enemies I’ve killed this game are with criticals and they will indeed kill them, legendary or not. I’m actually annoyed when I don’t kill an enemy with 2 bullets or less and I can clear an entire battlefield of people with one use of VATS (technically multiple VATS uses, but I mean before I run out of action points). I can fire 4 bullets in VATS and get 4 criticals probably 75% of the time. I’ve literally used 7 criticals in a row to kill 7 enemies in a row before and that’s not like a rare thing.
I know why you’re reading this though, how much of a difference does luck really make in the games loot system? Well well boys and girls, let me tell you. I found a fat man on the ground at level 8 and had around 4 mini nukes already. I found a a legendary explosive high powered shredding mini gun around level 25, also just laying on the ground. I have over 1000 ammo in every gun that I own except the Big Boy, which I have 31 mini nukes, and the Missile Launcher, which I have 46 missiles. For comparison, on the balanced build I have 200-600 ammo in my weapons, 14 mini nukes and 35 missiles. I only have 18 fusion cores now on the luck build, but that’s because I’ve been selling them until I hit the 40s. Before I was level 20 I had around 60 of them and sold them all to buy the Big Boy. On the balanced build I have 42 fusion cores, because I used my pickpocketing to get “infinite” from the BoS airport.
The carry weight, a big factor. It was a bitch at first with the luck build, but after I found ADA around level 15-20 it hasn’t been an issue since, it makes no difference. Except, I don’t carry my big boy or my missile launcher, ADA does, so that can be a tad annoying when I need it, but it’s very rare that I do.
I’ve killed way less enemies on my luck bound because well 1, I’m 15 levels behind my other build and 2 I still haven’t even met the minutemen or the BoS. I’ve only been rocking with the railroad and doing DLCs, I’m at the mission to go to the institute now, but I have not done it. So, I’ve been very selective with what I complete this game. On my balanced build, I genuinely don’t think I even have missions left to do, except for repeatable ones and one broken quest.
All I’m going to say, is I’ve had way more fun with this build than any other build I’ve had on fallout 4. It has to be noted, I started the luck build with 2 intelligence for idiot savant to take full effect, which is damn essential because when you have 10 luck, you are just getting butt fucked until you hit level 15-20 or so. Once you hit level 32 with four leaf clover, you’re quite a force to be reckoned with, once you max grim reapers sprint, you are an unstoppable force of nature. I’m fairly certain, if you had 10 luck and 10 endurance, that would just be god mode.
Try 10 luck. Just do it. If anyone has questions or notices something I should’ve included, do let me know.

Hi I am currently looking for jobs that pertain to my pce/hce hours without having to spend a lot of time and money to get licenses and certifications. I come across two in which one is a patient care coordinator at a retail optician store and a patient care technician at a dialysis center. I am iffy about whether a patient care coordinator counts as legit pce and that job seems to have a lot of interest in me and the work seems less stressful but I do not want to work there and end up wasting my time when it does not count for any hours.
On the other hand the patient care technician job has reached out to me but after speaking with them I haven’t heard from them in about 2 weeks. My application status says that it is still in progress and they offer extensive training to which I can get my ccht as well. I feel like that would help me in terms of pce as it is a known occupation that pa schools look for especially in nj. Also I’ve read reviews about the pct job and it seems like the company itself stresses out their workers a lot.
I’m not sure if I should wait to hear from the pct job or just put my all into the patient care coordinator job at the optician place. The optical place even pays more but the commute takes longer and I’m not sure if pa schools in nj are interested in that field of experience.

So is this sugar without sauce?
I just got a mighty vape for 4/20 and have been experimenting with a few things. I realize even with the concentration pads, the mighty vape just isn’t hot enough to use extracts. However, it works like a charm with sand infused flower and moonrocks. This product is advertised as just sugar. Other products similar are described sugar with sauce. So I am picturing this as some thing that I can sprinkle in between flower like I would THC sand or hash. Does anyone have any experience using this with a mighty vape or dry herb vaping?

2023.06.09 19:20 cocoacowstout Is there a possible way to ask someone if they have been giving you a bad reference/not recommending you? Or is that a bad idea.

Last year I was an Office PA on a smaller budget indie feature, it was my first proper film job. It was going really well, ya know, I was there 20 minutes early making the coffee when everyone came in type of thing. Till about halfway through, the OG coordinator left to manage another feature.
A week after the new coordinator came in, I got a call that one of my best friends had been killed. I was in a shock for a while, I considered the 60 hr weeks a welcome distraction for a bit, but as time it went on I was kind of running aground. I was happy to go on long drives for pickups because I could listen to sad music and grieve.
There were some weird office dynamics as well, it was just me, the prod. secretary and PC in the office. The secretary, who I was initially friends with, ended up kind of turning on me and throwing me under the bus to bond with the new coordinator. The producers’ assistant told me they were laughing once and wondering if I actually had any strengths.
Meanwhile other members of the production were saying they wish they could clone me and have a few copies running around because I can do everything/anything. But blah blah feelings, it stung a bit extra due to the loss of my friend.
But being in this environment, I never told anyone what had happened with my friend. It was so intense and personal, I don’t know, it seemed like no one would understand or I couldn’t open that can of worms.
Needless to say I didn’t have the same focus, didn’t always communicate updates effectively. Let my feelings towards the office dynamic get to me a bit. I guess on the other side I found out 6 months later the PC was coming off a kind of rough/high pressure project across the country.
The coordinator has hit me up once or twice when they needed someone to drive a box truck or a heavy load in/out. We are getting coffee next week, and I was planning on sharing what happened to my friend during that time.
I’ve been up for just a couple office PA things since, I don’t really enjoy it as much vs set PA but work is work. And they haven’t gone my way. Which could be anything, but I know everyone knows everyone so a quick text that, oh he’s not very good, can torpedo things quickly.
So, film industry of greater LA, anyway to probe if I’ve been getting a negative reference? Is getting coffee a good sign?
Thanks for reading if you made it here.

2023.06.09 18:52 toddrox476 Antinatalism within Half-Life 2

So I started playing through the Half-Life series games again, and this time through I noticed a speech coming through the PA system in City 17 by the character Dr. Breen in Half-Life 2. As I listened, I was surprised how much I agreed with him on his thoughts about humanity and instincts. Dr. Breen is supposed to be the antagonist in the game, but after listening to that speech, I think I'm on team Breen. Here's the speech he gave about human reproduction and the use of the suppression field:
Let me read a letter I recently received. "Dear Dr. Breen. Why has the Combine seen fit to suppress our reproductive cycle? Sincerely, A Concerned Citizen."
Thank you for writing, Concerned. Of course, your question touches on one of the most basic biological impulses, with all its associated hopes and fears for the future of the species. I also detect some unspoken questions. Do our benefactors really know what's best for us? What gives them the right to make this kind of decision for mankind? Will they ever deactivate the suppression field and let us breed again?
Allow me to address the anxieties underlying your concerns, rather than try to answer every possible question you might have left unvoiced. First, let us consider the fact that for the first time ever, as a species, immortality is in our reach. This simple fact has far-reaching implications. It requires radical rethinking and revision of our genetic imperatives. It also requires planning and forethought that run in direct opposition to our neural pre-sets.
I find it helpful at times like these to remind myself that our true enemy is Instinct. Instinct was our mother when we were an infant species. Instinct coddled us and kept us safe in those hardscrabble years when we hardened our sticks and cooked our first meals above a meager fire and startled at the shadows that leapt upon the cavern's walls. But inseparable from Instinct is its dark twin, Superstition. Instinct is inextricably bound to unreasoning impulses, and today we clearly see its true nature. Instinct has just become aware of its irrelevance, and like a cornered beast, it will not go down without a bloody fight. Instinct would inflict a fatal injury on our species. Instinct creates its own oppressors, and bids us rise up against them. Instinct tells us that the unknown is a threat, rather than an opportunity. Instinct slyly and covertly compels us away from change and progress. Instinct, therefore, must be expunged. It must be fought tooth and nail, beginning with the basest of human urges: The urge to reproduce.
We should thank our benefactors for giving us respite from this overpowering force. They have thrown a switch and exorcised our demons in a single stroke. They have given us the strength we never could have summoned to overcome this compulsion. They have given us purpose. They have turned our eyes toward the stars.
Let me assure you that the suppressing field will be shut off on the day that we have mastered ourselves...the day we can prove we no longer need it. And that day of transformation, I have it on good authority, is close at hand."
Now, the big question for us is: when can we get a global suppression field up and running?

2023.06.09 16:48 YoungMenace21 Parang gusto ko na mawala.

Medyo natatakot na rin ako sa sarili ko kasi umaapaw na yata lahat ng sama ng loob na naipon ko buong taon. Umiwas talaga ako sa "tropa" ko sa college kasi di ko na kaya pigilan sarili ko at baka maconfront ko sila nang di oras. Wala pa naman akong tiwala sa mga reaksyon nila lalo na nakita ko kung paano nila pagkampihan yung isa naming kaibigan kahit ano pa man ginawa niya. Nagsimula rin naman yon nung nagpakita siya ng anomaly at signs na depressed siya. Baka kahit ako pinagtatatiyagaan na lang din ng mga kaibigan ko. Kapag nakikita ko sila hindi ko na maalis sa isipan ko na pinaguusapan nila ako nang masama like they do with other people.Pakiramdam ko nga pinagtiyatiyagaan na lang ako ng lahat ng tao dahil naging parte ako ng buhay nila at some point, pero wala naman silang totoong pake sakin.
Ilang beses na ko nagpakita na kailangan ko ng tulong at di ako okay, wala silang pakeelam. Kahit mga magulang ko parang balewala sa kanila na naiyak ako ng isang oras mahigit, pero siguro mas ok na yon kesa sa sigawan nila ako dahil bawal umiyak talaga sa bahay.
Di ko matuloy yung iyak ko dahil may debut akong pupuntahan bukas. Depressed ako pero nangako ako. Nagpakita siya nung birthday ko at sinamahan ako magcelebrate samantalang yung iba sa tropa ko isinawalang bahala na lang birthday ko at mas pinili lumandi. Fuck you all if you're reading this.
Kaso naisip ko kung itutuloy ko baka madehado ang org ko at sabihing sila ang dahilan. School pub pa naman, ang awkward at bleak na member nila ang irereport nila. Sana kung matuluyan ako, hindi malaman na gusto ko na talaga mawala.
Wala naman talagang gustong umintindi sa akin. Ayoko na rin naman ipilit sarili ko sa mga taong wala namang amor sa akin at masakit na. Hindi ko nakikita na kailangan nila ako. Baka mas mabuting mawala na lang ako sa mundo. Wala rin namang magiiba dahil hindi nila ako kailangan. . Baka tama talaga si Taylor Swift, I am and have always been on my own.

2023.06.09 16:47 Adventurous-Ear9433 Teotihuacan: Purpose of mica, pyrite, mercury, Genetic Evidence for 2 founding populations

Teotihuacan was built on a geodetic grid system (a power center) in perfect sacred geometrical alignment with the cosmos to harness the energy of earth and sky. To understand it, we must go back to the original truth of the purpose. advanced design of Teotihuacan suggests that ancient builders had knowledge, not only of architecture, but of complex mathematical and astronomical sciences. The term 'Teohuacan' was found inscribed halfway across the globe on monuments in China, the term means 'place of the sun'(*our translation is 'Place to tie up the sun)Mercury, Hermes was the great Messenger, which also speaks for the planets quick trips around the sun. An aerial view shocked many researchers, but following the traditions we know what every pyramid was used for. Circuit Board-Teohuatican with two large processor chips— the Sun Pyramid and the Moon Pyramid. . One of the most interesting things about Teotihuacan is the finding by archaeologists of the extensive use of mica embedded in numerous structures. This mineral is found 3,000 miles away in Brazil and it is found in all buildings, housing complexes, temples and along the roads so basically this mineral is all over Teotihuacan.
The pyramid of the Sun in Teotihuacan contained considerable amounts of mica in layers up to 30 cm. Human use of mica dates back to prehistoric times. Mica was known to ancient Indian, Egyptian, Greek and Roman andChinese civilizations, as well as the Aztec civilization of the New World. The earliest use of mica has been found in cave paintings created during the Upper Paleolithic period (40,000 BC to 10,000 BC). The ancient civilizations & their inexplicable similarities are only shocking when one has disregarded our ancestors traditions as 'mythical ', which is a mistake made by academics only recently.
Mica is stable when exposed to electricity, light, moisture, and extreme temperatures. It has superior electrical properties as an insulator and as a dielectric, and can support an electrostatic field while dissipating minimal energy in the form of heat; it can be split very thin (0.025 to 0.125 millimeters or thinner) while maintaining its electrical properties, has a high dielectric breakdown, is thermally stable to 500 °C, and is resistant to corona discharge. Muscovite, the principal mica used by the electrical industry, is used in capacitors that are ideal for high frequency and radio frequency. Phlogopite mica remains stable at higher temperatures (to 900 °C) and is used in applications in which a combination of high-heat stability and electrical properties is required. Muscovite and phlogopite are used in sheet and ground forms.
The Maya Codex Vaticanus records faithfully the very ancient oral traditions of Central America. In one curious passage it states that “in the First Age, giants existed in that country(Mexico). "These 7 who escaped from a deluge , arrive in Cholula and there began to build a tower… in order that should a deluge come again he might escape to it.” Nahuatl language it’s named Tlachihualtepetl (‘artificial mountain’). Originally it was named Acholollan (‘water that falls in the place of flight’).
-Olmec(Xi)-had two different religious associations (gya-fa):the jaguar-man or humano-feline cult and the humano-bird cult. The humano-feline cult was called the nama-tigi by the Olmecs, while the humano-feline cult was called the kuno-tigi..Xoc Bas Birdman
The Teotihuacan(Tlalocan )mural depicts a range of mountains covered in rolling clouds and mists, below a brilliant red sky dominated by the huge figure of Tláloc, the Maya/Aztec god of celestial waters. Falling from Tláloc's open hands are flaming droplets of celestial water, likely representing the high-resonance isotope of protium, that overtly reference the ignition of celestial water vapor to form HHO plasma. The differentiation of celestial waters from terrestrial waters through the infrasonic evaporation of water vapor corresponds to special modern water purification processes involving the separation of resonant lightwater (protium) from dissonant heavy waters deuterium & tritium
The plumed headdress of Tláloc is comprised of radiating feathers of green and red hues, representing the colors of auroral plasma. Three arching red plumes stand out from the other green plumes of the headdress, extending from either side of the central figure and from the foreheads (pineal glands) of the two smaller figures in profile, representing the three frequencies of sound that generate nonlinear standing waves. Rising above the giant central figure of Tláloc is a majestic twisting Tree of Life image, composed of intertwining plumes of yellow/green and pink/red aerial HHO plasma that appear identical to modern photographs of the plasma discharges of red sprites.
Tláloc, God of Celestial Water, god of the vapor that rises, from the earth warmed by the sun after the rains, god of the mist that ascends from the valleys at dawn, god of the water that returns to its source in the clouds that swim over the highest peaks, god of the humid incense from which rise the copal prayers and the prayers of sacrifice
Tláloc is the return of vapor that strains to rise, is the return of time that strains to remember. Tláloc, God of the Fight Against the Current, with whose aid the hero battles against the torrent toward his own origin and beginning, towards the wings of his soul, the wings that Tláloc hides in the hero's past
The cycle of years is past - the waiting ended. Come - reunite, pilgrims, for the sky is in flames! From Xochicalco to Teotíhuacan the red spreads one step, another step, and another, only twelve short steps from the cave of the womb to the final conflagration
The red skies depicted in the Teotihuacan mural are also directly referenced in the Pyramid of Fire Codex, when it states that "the sky will be in flames" that will spread from one pyamid to another, as the worldwide netwrok of pyramids and sacred sites become activated to bath the area in the brilliant infrared and ultraviolet-A light of aerial HHO plasma plumes.ancient, unknown science designed to create energy directed up is excavating the tunnel.
-The geoposition of Teotihuacan pyramid complex (19.68°N 98.83°W), reveals a nonlinear (or Fibonacci-based) resonant alignment with respect to the Great Pyramid of Giza, being 7,684 miles away or 30.9% of the Earth's mean circumference (of 24,892 miles)..which is also observed in the Paracas petroglyphs.
The Sanskrit descendant cultures of Asia express the same essential interpretation given by the Maya culture of Central America; identifying the planet Mercury as ‘the fast runner’ that takes ‘quick flight’ around the sun, having a short orbital period of approximately 88 days. Among Nahuatl cultures, the art of running was crucial to the functioning of society, enabling the rapid conveyance of messages over long distance.
Mercury is the link (messenger) between the gods (higher principles) and humankind. In the ancient art of alchemy, such as in Hermeticism, Mercury, sulfur, and salt were the Earth's three principle substances that represent the trinity in creation. As sulphur is the symbol for the active principle, mercury is the symbol of the passive principle.The symbol of Mercury is the cosmic womb being incubated by the cross of the four elements of creation - earth, air, fire and water. Mercury is the messenger in Astrology as it is in mythology. It is the planet of day-to-day expression and communication. Mercury's action is to take things apart and put them back together again. It is an opportunistic planet, decidedly unemotional and curious. Mercury not only rules communication, it represents coordination. Thought processes, ideas, and sensory information from both unconscious and unconscious sources all need to be coordinated and understood.
Ive said before that the mercury was used to accomplish communication wth the Gods, The fluid metal element mercury was extolled as generating the luminosity of the blood of gods, for its threefold biophotonic extension of human longevity, whereby adepts of the alchemical arts were able to attain long lifespans. Mercury was closely associated with its extreme volatility, which must be carefully controlled to achieve positive results. Mercury was considered an ethereal element for its low boiling point of 357°C. When heated above this temperature, quicksilver will rapidly vaporize as toxic fumes inspiring an association with quick flight: ‘mercury has wings’.
A number of the Mesoamerican pyramids there are key components designed into their construction that act as magnifiers. These components appear to be important in the creation, magnification, and distribution of telluric fields.Pyramid & Scalar WavesEarly Irrigation of Teotihuacan
Provenance od Limestone used in Teotihuacan
Identification of Pyrite & Hematite
• Water, either moving naturally including rivers or cenotes (found at El Castillo at Chichen Itza) or by artificial canals or tunnels, similar to the Temple of Inscription found at Palenque.)
• Geo-magnetic fields. Naturally formed telluric fields that have high and low period throughout day and night.
• Pyramid design. The specific pyramid shape appears to greatly enhance the telluric fields that pulse up and into the center of the chamber.
• Pyramid interior fill. At a number of pyramids, rocks that are good electromagnetic conductors fill the interior of the pyramids and are used to enhance the pulsing field. Rocks that have veins with quartz, granite, and other electrical conducting properties appear to be favored. Characterization of lime carbonates in plasters from Teotihuacan, Mexico: preliminary results of cathodoluminescence and carbon isotope analyses
Dr Burke &Dr Brooker research determined that each location had been chosen because of its naturally occurring telluric energy field that pulsed up and into the structure or surrounding area. Also Burke and his research partner Kaj Halberg discovered electro-magnetic signatures that measured impressive charges on top of the pyramid. In a series of scans, the readings showed an average change of 908 volts over a short period of time, which was concentrated in the early morning hours. As ive stated in the past, this is the ideal time for sungazing. The pineal, contains magnetite & creates its own magnetic field. This was once a universal practice at Sacred sites, in 2009 until Nov 2012 The grand maya council held 52 full moon ritual of the new cycle where we visited sacred sites around the world and brought back these rituals. Burke mentions the readings and states, “These voltages might sound lethal and if it were a household current they could be. However, static electric charge in the air is a different type of electricity and even a thousand volts is not dangerous.” His discovery of pyramid field generation is fascinating, but what he actually uncovered was a means of generating and perhaps distributing electromagnetic energy within a pyramid complex. Which aligns with the term used for the ancient Egyptians, the Great PrNtr-house of Nature, or house of energy).
Stanford edu-Native American & Polynesian population The Genetic Evidence for 2 founding populations has constantly confirmed our traditions, the idea of independent invention is absolute nonsense. Theres an overwhelming amount of evidence, "believe" is a term unfamiliar to Dogon culture & ive yet to see the point in such a thing. If preconceived biases have clouded the minds of the majority, and they ignore evidence thats their fault. The age of the Fourth Sun, the Age of the Black Headed People (Aztec), or the Age of Heroes (Inca). This is the era in which Quetzalcoatl appeared in Mexico -- tall of stature, bright of countenance, bearded, and wearing a long tunic. His staff, shaped like a serpent, was painted black, white, and red [reminiscent of American Indians' mythology of three races of Man]. The staff was inlaid with precious stones and adorned with six stars.
-Between the 14th and 16th centuries during the Aztec era, Quetzalcoatl was worshipped as the patron of priests, the inventor of books and the calendar, as well as the protector of goldsmiths and other craftsmen..Shamanism, was invented in west Africa & brought to the Mesoamerican civilizations. The Aztec oral traditions say that Quetzalcoatl & his followers brought these beliefs ,and came from the East across the oceans. This is now corroborated by genetic, skeletal remains, artifacts, you name it. Quetzalcoatl was just a High Priest of Anu. The Gold tipped spears,or as Columbus calls it ' guanin 'to the Indians of Hispaniola. Samples of which sent back to Spain on a mail boat, and the proportion was found to be identical to what was being forged in African Guinea.
Moche Reed BoatThe Xi(Olmec) were a mix of a Polynesian/Oceanic elite aristocratic people accompanied by priests of the Orisha(Yoruba)/Mende(MalinkeBambara)responsible for introducing the religious practices and astronomical worship of the Mother Goddess complex (Venus, the Dogon Sirius observation and the Venus worship of the Olmecs, the use of the ax in the worship of Shango among he Yoruba of West Africa and the use of the ax in Olmec worship as well as the prominence of the thunder God later known as Tlalock among the Aztecs).It was R1b-V88(Yoruba) that were known as magicians to the Mayans & local Aymara over in Bolivia because of their knowledge of acoustics, which they have preserved from the Nile Valley (Anu colleges of Heliopolis).
Again, we see Toward the end of the Fourth Sun, wars between the gods were taking place. [The Battle of the Titans?] The gods' war brought havoc to the land; wild animals overran mankind, and Tollan was abandoned. The fourth Sun had begun 5,042 years before the time of the Codex Vaticano-Latino 3738 (1533). The time the Fourth Sun ended is not stated, but the Codex was written during the Fifth Sun. The Fourth Sun may have perished by means of the Jaguar. The Fifth Sun is referred to as the Age of Kings by the Incas.

2023.06.09 16:29 Intelligent_Mmama BPI rewards newbie

Hello all, been trying to read up on BPI rewards for my mom. Medyo overwhelmed ako sa lahat ng info. She has had her blue MC for decades. I remember when I was younger she would convert pa rewards to gift cheques but nung nagonline na hindi na niya nagagawa. I tried downloading the vybe app for her because I read somewhere na basta BPI account holder automatic na yung pero walang points na nagrereflect. Do we need to call the hotline? Malakas gamit niya sa CC becaude she doesn't bring cash at gusto niya isang bayaran nalang so sayang naman if hindi pa niya nakukuha yung points lalo na she's a retiree. Hoping may maka explain for a noob like me. I have my own card with a different bank so hindi ko alam rules ng BPI. thanks.

2023.06.09 14:59 yerederetaliria Monday ... yandere/yeredere dating is simple ... just never let go

Intro: https://www.reddit.com/yandere/comments/142b5vq/irl_yandere_couple_experiences/
Previous: https://www.reddit.com/yandere/comments/143av67/our_second_date/
Song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FVdjZYfDuLE

Monday comes around and I'm brand new and the world is full of love. As I confidently and energetically march to my first class I think about the weekend I just had. I spent all Friday night dancing with the man that I had been longing for and stalking for the past six months. That night was filled with the revelation that there is something between us, something deep. It culminated with my short confession and a lovely kiss. It was followed by a grand Saturday night date listening to music, talking, sweetly flirting. He also took initiative late Saturday with a kiss that curled my toes, making me feel reborn and full of fire.
I had made an agreement with him that today was the day we'd meet again. We'd meet for lunch, my request. I surprised him and everyone in the our group when I boldly changed his suggestion revealing that I knew his schedule. The time was agreed on with no questions asked. It was partly a mistake and partly a reveal. I knew I was taking a chance by slowly letting him know what I'd been up to but I wanted us to be right. I felt that I needed a clean slate almost as much as I needed him.
The day dragged on but I was really energized and able to focus on class because I had hope. I went to work from 9:00 - 11:45 on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. I worked at a campus bank called RamCache. There were unique credit/debit cards that could access your student account and we serviced the cards. The cards could be used to purchase whatever a student needed. I worked with my best friend and apt mate, Brenda. There are very few people who know my whole story and she is one. We were living together when I "met" Finnian. She was the first person I talked to about him. She saw all my antics from the beginning, through the stalking, dating, marriage until she moved away after the birth of my daughter. We still keep in touch. You can thank Brenda for introducing me to meme culture and suggesting Reddit as an additional place to vent. She suggested Reddit during the pandemic. She gave me my first meme, which I modified for privacy. This is her front row seat perspective. https://www.reddit.com/yandere/comments/12wmz9o/before_and_after_see_my_comment_for_an_explanation/
She also had a "fiance." She and her "fiance" had an on/off relationship where they couldn't seem to make up their mind if they were just friends or engaged. This had been going on for two years. If we are going to continue Anime tropes the two of them would definitely be a Tsundere/Dandere(Brenda) couple while Finnian and I would be a Kuudere/Yandere(Me) couple. Eventually Finnian would meet her fiance, Trevor, and they would become very close friends. He was an art major and into Anime and he introduced us to Anime. He was also the one who continued giving me odd nicknames like, "Yukako" and "Storm." I didn't understand the references at the time. Apparently I intimidated him. He was the one that said to Finnian, "you're the only guy I know who'd be calm holding the leash to a tiger." This knew couple what we were about and didn't judge.

I restrained myself and waited for Finnian to show and he was right on time. I threw my arms around him causing a little scene and announced that I got him some coffee. This is another tell. I already knew his coffee order. Before we went outside I introduced him to Brenda...as my boyfriend. I am relationship elevating in front of everyone and trying to weave our lives together by starting a friendship with Brenda. This is where I differ. I do not isolate him but rather I accompany and surround him. I make it obvious to everyone that we are a couple. His only response was a slightly confused look he gave me which I ignored. He and I have different personalities. He is reserved, calm, and very quiet. I am more open, excitable, and talkative. That's why I ramble in my posts. There were benches right outside the Student Center near a flower garden and we sat there. There is a large open pedestrian area in the middle of campus that reminded me of the plazas back in Spain. This would become a routine. Sitting on the bench with coffee or tea, holding hands and talking, weather permitting. I want to emphasize the fact that most of our "dates" were just that. You don't have to be extravagant to date someone. There's no need for shows or expenses. We had nicer dates but most of the time we just sat, talked and held hands. A lot of our future relationship was worked out there. Including serious topics such health and money issues. Goals for marriage, property, finances, education, kids. We talked through differences in opinions and came to understandings. We just had fun laughing at people. I do not know what we talked about that first Monday or most of the week. When we couldn't be outside we went to the upstairs gallery in the student center. Did I mention that we held hands? Oh my God, I am insane with his hands. It would get awkward. Him: "I need you to let go." Me: "I can't let go." Him; "Just let go.' Me: "No." Him: "I need both hands now...thank you." *me scooching even closer to him* .... *my hand slowly takes his arm...*
If you read carefully you can get some dating advice from us. A short list so far: get help and use friends, direct each other, talk and look for commonalities, talk and resolve differences, laugh, talk about serious issues, talk about silly things, go cheap, hold hands, both should pay and without much negotiation, both should initiate.
So we started a routine. Bench dates followed by periodic nicer dates. Daily meetings and conversations. (After we married I started keeping track of the number of days we've been apart physically. The total number in 23 years is 30 days. We have talked every day.) Very quickly this would change as I would invade his space even more. At this point I was still stalking but much less. I was mainly focusing on inserting myself into different parts of his life and bringing him into mine. I was smothering and clingy. I was relationship elevating and trying to slowly reveal that I had been stalking him. He was figuring out that I am not interested in a temporary fling but I am serious. He'll clarify that in the next few days.
Trevor's "Yukako" inspiration: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DP-kv1uIoZk&t=74s Trevor teased me that I was using magic or something with Finnian. Trevor and Finnian also had this odd vibe where they would denigrate each other. Trevor would accused Finnian of being stupid when he would then seriously and affectionately compliment him. Finnian return the favor by calling Trevor, "my son" it was a weird Bro thing. Finnian is no Koichi, he's closer to Giyu Tomioka. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TdHpfDjpn24&t=247s see how Giyu holds her at 0:18 - 1:30 ? That is the vibe Trevor was talking about. I don't understand Finnian's refusal to panic. I have never seen him panic. He's been angry, wept, laughed, excited like a puppy but never panic. It's a huge f*ckin' turn on. Enough gushing.
Trevor's "Storm" inspiration: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fe32Iag9RCQ I didn't think I was that bad.

Memory Transcription Subject: Christopher A. Dewey, Human Merchant Sailor, Venlil-Human Exchange Participant
Date [Standardized Human Time]: August 29th, 2136, Very Early Morning.
We got a message an hour ago from Videk, ordering us to report to Hangar-08 to start On-Stick training; and to bring our bags! I guess the guy had wanted to get as much out of the day as he could. That or he wanted to get this over with as soon as possible.
Videk met us at the doors to the hangar, a small travel bag sitting on the floor by his side, tail swaying slowly as he watched us approach. “Good Waking, Taisa. Good Waking… Christopher.” An improvement, I’ll have to ask Taisa about that talk they had.
“This,” He continued, motioning to the shuttle parked in the hangar behind him with his tail. “Is your training shuttle: registration C1-0V3R-HR-EX.Your first On-Stick training assignment will be to follow appropriate lift off and departure procedures, plot and follow a course to The Capitol on Venlil Prime, seek permission to land from the proper authorities, and land safely and legally following those permissions. All of this, while following proper procedure and regulations. All of this will be graded.
As he speaks the door behind him slides open, revealing a broad hangar bay, heavy clamshell doors dominate the far wall. At the center of the bay sits a stout craft painted white and black, a pair of stubby wings jutting from its sides flowing into a pair of engines flanking a singular tail. Venlil script is painted at the root of the tail and on the top of the rear ramp.
“Upon arrival in the Capitol you will have some paperwork to do at the U.N. offices with regards to your habitation. I will need to pick up some equipment from the training facility at the landing fields. After our respective errands, let’s say half a claw, we will meet up back at the shuttle and from there you will be plotting an in-atmosphere route to Shadetree, Sunward of the Capitol, to drop me off and wait for me to install and calibrate the remote instructing equipment. Once that is completed, you will plot another in-atmosphere course to Heartwood River, concluding this paws evaluations. Do you have any questions?”
I shook my head, and Taisa flicked her ears, in what I believed was a negative. “Very good, load your stuff and we’ll begin immediately.”
After a few minutes of finding places to tie off our belongings and get everything situated, I sat in the pilot’s seat and ran through the pre-flight check with Taisa. We caught a pair of faults in the starboard fuel delivery units. Videk seemed pleased we had caught them, and that he hadn’t had to tell us they were there. I could feel a slight smile tug at the corner of my mouth.
Devious little bastard makes for a damn good instructor.
Once the preflight was complete I closed the rear ramp and hailed the flight control tower. “Tower this is shuttle C1-0V3R-HR-EX requesting clearance for departure, place us enroute to Venlil Prime with planned landing zone of Capitol Shuttle Field 13-Bravo.” A Human voice came back over the line, a bit of mirth in their voice. “Shuttle, Tower, you are clear for departure, opening bay doors now. Good luck and Godspeed.”
The doors to the station hangar yawned open, filling the viewport with the void and all its stars beyond as I slowly brought the shuttle off the hangar floor, easing it out through the opening. I reached over to the nearest display and opened the Nav-computer interface, plotting our course to VP, and then on to the Capitol landing fields. Once I was confident I had the proper navigation commands and sequences set I called over Videk to have him review my work.
He gave me a quick flick of his tail before saying “Looks good, Christopher. Feel free to spool and jump when you’re ready.”
Videk’s approval given, I reached over and pushed forward on the throttles, engaging the drive and hurtling the shuttle into subspace.
It. Was. Beautiful. Everything seemed to stretch, stars in the distance turning from pinpricks of light into brilliant colorful streaks, lengthening as we bounded through the void. Lines of light far off in my periphery zip past like tracers as the ones before me feel as if they’re pulling me in with their kaleidoscope of color. The hum of the shuttle fell into the background while I became entranced by the light show in front me, picturing myself on the set of one of those old sci-fi shows I would watch with Pa on the weekends. The Future my ancestors had imagined was Here, right before my eyes and at the tips of my fingers! This view was… Hypnotic. The simulator couldn’t hope to do it justice.
Two hours. That was it.
Two hours to travel what, until very recently, would have been considered an insurmountable distance for Humanity. Dropping from Sub-space into the proximity of Venlil Prime was another astoundingly brilliant view. Scorched white deserts flowing into massive swathes of golden sands cut by the occasional streak of blue before blending into a beautiful verdant mix of turquoise and green fields, with vast lakes and rivers dotting the forests, flowing into wide marshy wetlands. Before finally, the curve of the planet fell away from its star, allowing the fading sunlight to showcase glittering city lights dotting the countryside.
The thrusters burn to life, crackling and thrumming with power as they drive us forward through the void to the beautiful marble before us. I flip two switches on the overhead, tapping the leftmost display to call up the local channel list and place a hail to the Capitol’s landing fields to request clearance and pad assignment. A quick ping, signifying my hail had been acknowledged, chimed over the console speaker.
“Capitol Shuttle Field 13-Bravo this is Shuttle C1-0V3R-HR-EX requesting clearance for landing at an available pad of convenience.” “C1-0V3R-HR-EX, you are cleared for landing, 13-Bravo, direct to pad Charlie-5.”
The Flight through the Void may have had some feeling of familiarity and nostalgia to the old Sci-fi shows at home; but in-atmo had the far better view! Rolling turquoise fields and towering thick trees, with their canopies tilted greedily towards that unmoving sun, falling away to a gargantuan metropolitan area, its architecture entirely alien yet still somehow familiar. Massive skyscrapers soar to touch the sky, reflecting light in brilliant angles and colors, the space below them populated by squat sturdy buildings and deep black roads. The Venlil going about their lives below look like ants as I ease off the throttle, taking the speed down to prepare for the final approach. The display on the viewport flags my landing area with a small pip guiding me in, slow and easy.
The cabin jostles slightly as the ship settles onto its landing gear. Videk seemed impressed; his ears up as he tapped away at his data pad! Taisa’s tail sways happily back and forth as she runs through the diagnostics of the landing, checking system status reports.
“Looks like we’re all clear. Videk do you have a time we should try and be back by?” Taisa beeps, showing the flight instructor the console in front of her.
“I just need to pick up the equipment and get it linked up, that should only take about a half a claw. Walking to and from the landing field and the U.N. Offices should put you at about the right time.” Videk turned away and made for the ramp; Taisa’s talk helped, and he was clearly trying, but he was still a bundle of nerves around me. His fur was so puffed out it looked like he was holding more static than a thunderhead.
As we stepped out of the artificial gravity of the shuttle I felt like I was carrying the weight of the world on my shoulders. My first step faltered making me stumble down the ramp and bounce off the… soft pavement? “Oh, forgot about that.” Videk winced sympathetically, “Our gravity is about twenty percent more than earth’s, so be careful. Falls are likely to hurt a little bit more here.”
“Would’ve been nice to know first, Videk.” I groaned, rolling myself over and sitting up, luckily the visor hadn’t fallen off; I would need to add one of those new back braces and some knee compressors to that order of stuff from home. “Do you know where the U.N. Offices are? Or should we just ask around to find our way there?”
“I do not, but you should be able to get directions on your pad. I trust the two of you can figure it out, so I’m going to go get the equipment I need. I will wait for the two of you with the shuttle once I am ready.” With a parting flap of his ears, Videk turned and walked away; flicking the tip of his tail back and forth as he did.
“Alright then,” I grumbled, forcing myself up off the pavement, swaying as I found my new equilibrium. “let’s get going. Can you pull up those directions?” She nodded slightly, flicking her ears forward. “Got them up already! You alright there?”
“I’m fine.” I grunted, rolling out my shoulder a little. “Feels like I weigh a quarter ton, but I’ll get over it with time. Lead the way.”
After a few minutes of walking we were off the landing fields and into the streets of the city. My boots sinking into the pavement a little with each step, just like on the landing field. “Taisa, what is this stuff? I figured it was just to make landings a little softer on shuttles but it’s everywhere! Looks like pavement but it gives like rubber; why are your roads like this?” “Anti-stampede concrete.” She stated, matter of factly, like that meant literally anything to me. My silence must have tipped her off that I wasn’t getting it as she focused one eye on my visor. “Oh… I guess Humans wouldn’t need that. It’s to help reduce stampede fatalities, it’s the same reason the roads and buildings have gentle curves, no sharp angles.” Looking around at the way the groups of Venlil flowed through the streets I realized she was right, what I had thought was a futuristic aesthetic design was just to keep people from killing each other against walls or trampling them into the ground when they got scared. How strange… and slightly worrying.
“Weird, that sounds like some crazy wonder material. Bet we’d have a bunch of uses for it back on earth.” My eyes watched the tips of skyscrapers towering above us, “How far out does it say we are?”
“Only a little further, about one and a half kilometers.” She responded, a slight pant in her voice. I wasn’t in the best shape, cardio wise, but I couldn’t imagine getting winded after 10 minutes of walking; guess all that talk about the Venlil having less stamina than us was right.
The U.N. Office complex was a series of giant flowing buildings built on a large park area. It wasn’t any design I had ever seen so I figured it had to have been an existing complex that just got turned over to the U.N. for their uses.
Passing through the heavy glass front doors we found a wide receptionist's desk, with several Humans sitting behind it, answering questions and directing people where they needed to go. One of the receptionists, a short dark haired woman with a visor obscuring her face, beckons us over. “Hello! How can I help you today?” “H-Hi!” Taisa beeps excitedly, her tail swaying behind her confidently as she takes a deep breath and straightens her back. “We’re part of the ‘integration’ experiments, we were told we need to fill out some forms for habitation. Where do we go to do that?” “Oh! Congratulations! That would be Suite 216-B” The receptionist answered, excitement in her voice as she pointed to a room on the map infront of her.
“Thank you!” Taisa responded, turning to head up the stairs behind the receptionist's desk. Halfway up the stairs she swiveled her ears over to me before saying. “Sorry, I figure if I’m probably going to have to work with Humans other than you for this I should try and at least work on being able to talk to them.” “It’s alright,” I chuckle, patting her shoulder. “That’s a great idea and you’re doing alright!” Walking down the hallways we saw prints of landscapes from Earth, Machu Picchu, the Uyuni Salt Flats, The Grand Canyon, YellowStone, Hạ Long Bay, The Zhangye Mountains and Plitvice Lakes. I pointed out the places I had been to as we walked past them, finally stopping at suite 216-B.
The door was open so we knocked, getting a quick ‘enter’, before stepping in. A man sits behind a desk, the top covered in organized files and folders, a placard on his desk declares his name as ‘Obediah Kamara’ with a small Liberian flag stamped beside it.
His visor obscures his face as he looks between the two of us before beginning. “I presume you are…” He sorts through a couple of the files and folders before stopping on one and opening it, pulling out a document packet. “Christopher Dewey and Taisa. Correct?”
We both respond in the affirmative as he gestures for us to take the seats across from him, sliding the documents across the table as Taisa’s pad pings on her belt. “These are agreements to ensure that you,” He starts, looking at me. “Understand the rules in regards to your habitation here on Venlil Prime. I understand that part of your integration will be taking you off world to and from Earth, these rules primarily apply to your time here. We ask that you remain considerate of the provided rules and guidelines on the ship if you are carrying Venlil passengers. Taisa, those are the terms, conditions, compensations and requirements for your family to house a human when the two of you are present. Virtual signature of that document is required within the next 3 of your ‘paws’.” Taisa stiffened a little bit, likely thinking about her Mother’s response to my arrival; that was something we were probably going to have to have a talk about later. I had an idea for the short term, at least. I ran through the paperwork real quick and it was all pretty simple: don’t be without the visor or some kind of face covering in settings where you couldn’t guarantee that an unprepared Venlil wouldn’t see you, avoid aggression, speak quietly, no eating meat, animal products or byproducts, no hunting local wildlife; bit odd considering I didn’t even have a bow or a gun but rules are rules, I suppose.
“Sounds good to me,” I said, signing the indicated portions of the document. “When are my items supposed to get here?”
“We don’t expect your requested items to arrive for another week or so, for now you’ll have to make do with what you brought with you.” Obediah responded, shuffling the packet of papers back into the folder they had come from. “With that complete you are free to go. I understand you have training to complete, so I wish you good luck with your endeavor. If you have any questions or needs with regards to your habitation you can contact Sam, their details will be forwarded to your communication devices.”
I caught Taisa’s tail twitching as her ears swiveled nervously out of the corner of my eye; even with her attempts to push through it I think the amount of Humans around was starting to get to her. Still, she was doing better than I think a lot of Venlil would be able to manage. I reached over, gently tapping my hand against her paw, trying to ground her a little before motioning to go, she nodded slightly as she flicked her ears.
“Thank you, Obediah, we’ll be sure to get into touch with them once we get their contact. Have a good day!”
Taisa and I stood, exiting the room and making our way out of the building, stopping to look at another picture or two along the way. Something needed to be done about possibly not having a place to stay to put my, and more so Taisa’s, mind at ease. I figured I could sleep in the shuttle, if I had to. It wouldn’t be particularly comfortable but I could certainly do it; I’d need a mat, maybe a sleeping bag or some blankets and a pillow.
I had no clue where I was going to get my hands on those, or at least a set of them big enough for me to actually use.
Then I saw the temporary units in the field near the offices. Men and Women in U.N. fatigues were milling about the area. Barracks? That could solve the problem, if they’re willing to help out a man in need, of course.
“Hey, Taisa, I need to make a stop real quick.” I state, walking briskly towards the largest of the buildings. “What’s up?” She asks, ears focused on me as she tilts her head a little.
“Well, I was thinking, I don’t think your parents, your Mom especially, won’t, uh… won’t want me around. At least not for a little while until she gets to know me better.”
“I think you can get past it, she’s not that bad… It’ll just be tough.”
“Oh I’m sure I can get past it, but I’d rather not just sleep in the grass in the meantime.” “I don’t think she’d make you sleep in the grass…” “I like being prepared, if she doesn’t want me in her house I’m not going to push the issue.”
“I just… I hope it doesn’t come to that, I’m not going to let her toss you outside like an animal.” She sighs quietly as we push through the front door of the barrack building.
A desk manned by a napping U.N. Marine with Private ranks stuck to his shoulders filled the space beyond the doors. He stirs as the doors clank shut behind us before scrambling to throw on his Visor as he notices Taisa.
“Hello, Uh… Can I help you? This area is for active U.N. personnel only.” He starts, his voice finding its authority only about halfway through the statement.
I stand straight, trying to muster the stern demeanor I’d found in my father and his friends so often when they tried to get something on base after their retirements. “Easy, Private. It has come to my attention that my accommodations lack proper bedding.” “O-Oh, uh, I apologize…” He stammers out, searching for something to say, likely looking to find a way out of trouble for sleeping on duty.
“Sir.” I state. “What’s your name, Private?”
“A-Alvarez, Sir.”
“Alvarez. I’ll remember that, Alvarez, how about we make this quick, you get me a wrap of blankets, 3 pillows and a bedroll and I don’t find your commander to report your… lack of enthusiasm.”
The private snaps to attention before firmly stating. “Yes Sir! I’ll be right back, Sir!”
As the private turns and walks away crisply I hear Taisa whistle with laughter a little beside me. “I’m surprised that worked.”
“You’d be surprised what a hard voice, straight back and the right slacking Private can get you if you just don’t go pushin' it too far in your story.” I whispered with a wink.
After a few minutes of waiting Private Alvarez returned with a duffle bag, stuffed full with blankets and pillows, as well as an inflatable bedroll under the other arm. “Here you go, Sir. Will this be ok?” He asked, passing the items over to me.
“Perfect, thank you Private.” I took the bundle of bedding and turned to the door, before turning my head back over my shoulder, “Oh, and Private? Do try and get proper rest before duty.”
A shaking “Y-Yes, Sir.” followed Taisa and I out of the door.
The first half of the walk back to the landing field was quiet, I was scanning the skyline again, I just couldn’t get over the fact that I was on another planet. Taisa however had her ears pinned back, her paws lightly holding her tail tuft as we walked.
“What’s got ya down?” I asked, watching the herd of Venlil glide around us as we came, trying their best not to get too close to me.
“I’m… concerned.” She sighed, the tip of her tail twitching between her paws.
“About?”
“My mother, what she’ll say… What she’ll do.
“I can’t exactly say I know what her reaction’ll be… But, whatever it is we’ll just have to deal with it. It’ll probably take time, but we’ll get by.” I soothed. She let go of her tail, placing the tip of it on my back, but her ears didn’t let up at all.
The rest of the walk to the shuttle was quiet as she fidgeted with her paws, trying to take her mind off of the subject. Videk was there waiting for us, a few crates secured to the cargo area of the shuttle that weren’t present before.
“You two ready?” He asked, flicking his tail at us.
“I think so.” I responded, stowing the bedding in an empty compartment as Taisa flicked her ears.
We ran through our preflight checklist again, finding another pre-placed failure from Videk waiting for us, this time in the starboard control surfaces. Once the check was done we radioed the tower for clearance to take off and set an in-atmo course for Shadetree to drop off Videk. It was a short hop, about a half hour of flying or so before I had to call ahead for clearance to land again.
Most of the flight from the Capitol to Shadetree had been rolling turquoise and green hills or open fields of produce growing in the everpresent light. A sudden dense forest rose from the fields, thick dark brown trees with fluttering golden leaves stretched as far as the eye could see in every direction. A sudden break in the forest revealed a clearing for the Landing field, much smaller than the one at the Capitol. The city was built under the canopy of the trees, giving it a constant filtered light casting down through the shifting leaves. It was certainly a beautiful town, I’d have to come back to visit some day. Maybe once Videk had warmed up to me a little bit more.
As the ramp fell ,a small cargo truck arrived alongside the shuttle to collect Videk and his equipment. I offered to help but the Venlil driver just about ran when I started talking so I figured it was probably best to just keep out of it. Once the cargo truck departed, Taisa came back up to the cockpit, plopping down in her seat, and looked through the viewscreen at the trees beyond. The soft hiss of the ramp closing marked the finality of Videk’s departure.
“So, how are you feeling about Venlil Prime so far?” She asked, one eye on my face as I finally slipped the visor off.
“I like it! Between the beautiful scenery, interesting architecture and hanging out with you and Shamrock, here I’m having a great time!” I responded, rubbing my hand on what amounted to the shuttle's dashboard.
“... Shamrock?” She asked, her tail swaying in what I figured for amusement.
“Yea! Remember how I told you Humans like looking for patterns? Well it works on words and numbers as well. The tail number for the shuttle could be taken to spell ‘Clover-HR-EX’, or just clover for short. Clovers are a type of plant on earth that a few cultures believed to be lucky, one way or another. One of the nicknames for them was a Shamrock!”
She laughed at me.
“You are such a dork.” She said, wiping a tear from her eye as her tail whipped back and forth. “It’s a good name, usually shuttles don’t get one. I think it fits.”
I chuckled, a thought crossing my mind. “Think we could get any shuttle-grade paint? Preferably green, yellow and black?” She raised an eyebrow at me as her ears cocked at different elevations. “Oh? Someone feeling a little artistic?”
“Well, I could always paint a Shamro-” I was interrupted as the ping signifying we were being hailed sounded off. “We’ll finish this later.” I said, pointing at her as I accepted the hail.
Videk’s voice bled through the speakers. “Ok, looks like the connection is secure. Let’s go ahead and run through getting you familiar with the software, it should be quick and easy.”
It was not.
It took two hours. After a lot of trial and error, stop and go flights to test the connection and a few near misses with an especially tall tree we had gotten the system setup such that Videk was confident it would work in an emergency if he needed to step in. With that all squared away Taisa and I settled in to get on our way to Heartwood River. Sleeping on the blow up mattress or on a real bed hardly mattered at this point, I just wanted to sleep.
The overall flight time was set to be about an hour and a half, not too bad and man was the view beautiful: rolling fields, roaring rivers, pristine skies and alien forests abounded across the countryside. We had just passed over Hidden Plains when Taisa and I were just settling back into talking about her parents and our best route to try and handle them, when the hail system chimed and immediately spat out a harsh tone without acknowledgement, the same one the simulator used for distress calls.
“Mayday Mayday Mayday. Report of shots fired at residence housing humans. Need immediate medical evac at The Berrypatch Farm in The Grove, 11 minutes Night-ward from Hidden Plains. Hailing all airborn craft, we need a medical evac immediately!”
I immediately returned the hail. “This is cargo shuttle C1-0V3R-HR-EX. Responding to Mayday from the Grove. We are en-route to render aid. Hold tight, we’ll be there.”
Out of the corner of my eye I saw Taisa tighten her flight harness as I reached for the throttle.
