2023.06.05 05:06 Due-Working-9495 Congrats on winning the NBA finals
I know the series isn't officially over yet but I want to congratulate the Miami Heat on winning the NBA finals since there is no way the Nuggets can win another game against Miami, who have Bam and Jimmy the two best players in Miami Heat history and both are top 20 players all time,

2023.06.05 04:56 hpspnmag Subreddits to keep Fruit Tree and Plant edible
Hello, I am trying to find resources. We moved into a house that already had fruit-bearing trees and other plants. We haven’t looked into how to keep pests away since the cold weather and rain kept them pest free. Now that spring and summer are upon us, the trees and plants are starting to grow fruits. The roses are also growing. We want to avoid anything harmful to the trees/plants and us. We also inherited some goldfish and a koi fish in a pond in the front yard, so we would also like to keep them alive . What would be the best subreddits to visit to get help in caring for these plants?
If it matters, these are the types of trees/plants:
Oranges, apples, peaches (still small and probably not giving fruit for a while), an avocado tree, grapes, pomegranate, small bell peppers, potatoes, tomatoes, and figs

2023.06.05 04:56 Ml18torj A new hope
Longtime nets fan at my wits end here. Just wanted to say that I’ve fallen in love with y’all’s franchise ever since the bubble when Jimmy and co went off. In light of the Durant/Kyrie debacle this season and our subsequent first round exit I’ve been experiencing a great amount of joy at your success against my mortal enemies (my friends are all Celtics fans). While I had my hopes initially in the post season vis a vis jokic and Murray, I was not convinced. After tonight’s game, however, I truly believe you can win this thing, and sincerely hope you do. That is all

2023.06.05 04:55 Gristle__McThornbody I am now 1,000% convinced we didn't get 1 fn game against Denver due to our poor coaching.
My initial reaction for our sweep were Dlo sucks, AD being on and off on offense, Players being injured, and the list goes on and on. But watching EVERY team get at least once against the Nuggets, and watching the Heat pull off a win on the road just solidifies the shit coaching we have. These teams are not more talented than us.
Take the Heat in gm 2 for example. Jimmy Butler was playing like shit. Does that remind you on Lebron with his stupid 3pt shot selection? Sure it does! Well guess what, Spo benched his ass for extended minutes in the 4th and the other guys were rolling. He brought in Jimmy when things were not looking good and that lit a fire in Jimmy to play better. Would Ham ever do such thing against Lebron. NO! Ham is a player coach. He cares about the player relationship than what's best for the team.
Point is, the Heat(and every other team) makes adjustments to have the best team on the floor and benching Jimmy in the 4th stood out the most for me. Yes everything I mentioned about the team is true but there are ways to mitigate it. For example, AD turned into a beast when Rui defended Jokic and AD became a bigger beast defensively. GO TO THAT SHIT MORE. Instead Rui saw his usual minutes instead of ramping them up after that game 1 performance. He should have been playing 40 minutes. Dlo sucked we all knew that. But he kept getting minutes in the second half and in the fourth quarter almost every game. Why would you do that. The stats say we suck with him on the floor. Why are you playing him so much. Three guard lineups. We don't have the guards for it but we still do it. The list goes on and on. Double teams on Jokic. Hardly see them by the Heat. Even when Gabe Vincent was defending. Everyone knows Jokic is a master passer why would you double him? We never changed that all series.
Just venting I hate seeing how we got swept when we have the talent to win this championship but our poor coaching staff held us from getting to this point. Fuck Ham. We didn't let Vogel pick his coaching staff we sure as hell shouldn't let Ham pick his.
Edit: Just saw someone post on nba how Jokic is 0-3 when scoring over 40. If you are HAM WHY do you send him a double team. I kept asking this question all series and he kept doing it. He was carving us up with his elite passing but we kept sending double teams. You can't be this stupid. You simply can't. Let Jokic go 1-1 vs David or AD and live with the results.
Take game 2 for example. Spo didn't do no double team bullshit. Hardly did. What happened? KCP, Porter Jr played like shit. Murray played like shit until late in the 4th but it was too late. I fucking hate Darvin Ham.

2023.06.05 04:55 mtnsandmusic The Zombie Heat
I was impressed how in Game 1 the Heat never quit but that was still the regular season Heat. In Game 2 the Zombie Heat showed up.
Draining 3s, refusing to go away, random role players stepping up, Jimmy Buckets, and most of all Spo for concocting a devilish amoeba zone that grinded the Nuggets offense to a stalemate.
As a Bucks fan, I am glad to see the Heat continue playing well. As an NBA fan I am glad we are primed for a competitive Finals. The Nuggets coasted for 3 rounds against teams with big names and no chemistry. Now they finally have some real competition.

2023.06.05 04:49 Hot_Subject_1338 StarFox Alternate Timeline Story Dialogue IV: Visiting the Triceraton’s Island Home part 2 (Aquarium visit)
meanwhile in the Triceraton’s Grand Aquarium
Fox “Farah? It’s been too long!”
Farah “EEK! Please don’t look when I’m naked, McCloud! Did you get bought by the Triceraton as well?”
Fox “No, I am just visiting along with General Pepper. How did you get here?”
Farah “Artifact Retrieval for a client!”
Fox “Don’t tell me you’ve heisted another museum!?”
Farah “I wasn’t, just stole some odd artifacts from the antique stores! Before I could collect my fee from the client, I got nabbed by aquatic abductors using an odd smoke bomb to transform the nearby civilians into merfolk.”
Fox “And then you were bought by the Triceraton…”
Farah “Wish I had something to wear so I wouldn’t be half-naked all the time. But seems the ladies in here are so relaxed without feeling embarrassed.”
Fox “Maybe they’re just adjusting to their surroundings in here. But maybe I can request for another shirt for you?”
Farah “That would be nice, Fox!”
Fox “So how long have you been in the Grand Aquarium of the Triceraton's island?”
Farah “After being bought by the big triceratops humanoid, I’ve been here a few months and wondered how he would be so kindhearted to his aquatic collection of both mermaids and mermen.”
Fox “Well, I was at a floating fortress for a week and been friends with the Shredder.”
Farah “Wait, did you also infiltrate the underwater smuggling stronghold?”
Fox “That was Falco finding his new lover, and I wasn’t there. I surrendered to the Warlord’s dark agents at Corneria before being transported to the floating fortress.”
Farah “He was expecting a brave Lombax, but he bought me instead. Lucky Falco!”
Fox “Since you’re not doing any thieving, have you considered of having a family?”
Farah “Well I was thinking of finding someone to be my husband, but seems like it would be easier to get a good home.”
Fox “Would you like to date my big Sharpclaw brother, Scales?”
Farah “Uh, no thank you!”
Fox “Is there anyone in here that caught your interest?”
Farah “I don’t think so, but I’m guessing I can tell that you have a good idea of what you’re looking at…”
Fox watching the Triceraton approaching with his foster daughter “I still have a lovely wife with my mermaid daughters that are waiting back home at the Subspace Headquarters.”
Farah “Maybe I should have known the answer was in front of me, but I don’t know if I’m a good person to ask.”
King Triceradon “I think it’s a good idea to do things slowly. Would you like to be my beloved wife?”
Farah “I don’t want to date another dinosaur humanoid… but I want to be your beloved mate, my triceraton fiancé!”

2023.06.05 04:46 CamiloMarco Somebody explain to me
How the fuck the Heat won against the Nuggets while we get swept? Lebron and AD are better than Jimmy and Bam. Our roleplayers like Rui and Reaves had some amazing games too. I don't get it.

2023.06.05 04:39 Difficult-Dirt-1725 S3E8 - The Game Plan is the funniest episode ever
I don’t know… I’ve never really laughed so hard like multiple times in one OC episode. Here are some of the scenes I thought were funny:
-Ryan laughing a real laugh when set jumped over the couch (Seth was holding his laughter too) this was the first time I’ve seen him laugh so big
-Pilot joke between Sandy and his friend Paul
-Julie telling Gus/Kirsten she doesn’t swing
Also, this episode was directed by Tate aka Jimmy Cooper!
P.S. I feel bad for Johnny getting runover. I don’t think he is as annoying as Oliver (YET?)

At the Triceradon’s hidden island “CRASH!” and Fox got thrown through a wall into a saltwater tide-pool King Triceradon “Havoc! Fox McCloud came with his superior for a visit, so just chill out already!”
General Pepper “Are you alright, Fox?”
Fox “Don’t worry, l had much worser injuries before.”
General Havoc “Sorry about that! I lose my patience when invaders try to steal our aquatic collection of merfolk.”
General Pepper “It’s alright! I could have taken the punch before letting Fox get injured and changed into his merman appearance.”
Fox “And I forgot to bring my wheelchair again!”
the Triceradon’s servants brought a wheelchair for his transformed visitor
King Triceradon “Well, you are right about coming to visit us at a different timing. Though I was hoping your friends would have come as well…”
Fox “They’re all back in the Subspace Headquarters, so it’s only just us two that are visiting!”
General Havoc “Well now that you have arrived here, do you need anything new to wear since I damaged your uniform?”
Fox “Not really, unless you have an extra sleeveless shirt that fits my size.”
King Triceradon “My servants are going through the closet nearby to find what you have requested.”
General Pepper “So, which part of the galaxy did you come from?”
King Triceradon “We came from the TMNT universe, 4Kids versioned Turtles’ galaxy.”
Fox “Same galaxy that the Shredder came from, but from different worlds? Guessing he didn’t inform us about his origin.”
General Havoc “While I stayed behind on the island, he went to the different world and met the Warlord. He was reporting back when seeing the true form of Ch’rell…”
Fox “I guess I was astonished to see an Utrom in his fortress and not a real threat of the same person.”
King Triceradon “Well since you came to visit, do you want to go into the Grand Aquarium and interact with the merfolk residents?”
Fox “It would be an honor to meet with your aquatic friends while you are chatting with General Pepper out here!”
General Pepper “Like an excited kid ready to explore a new place!”
Fox enters the Grand Aquarium to interact with the underwater locals
General Havoc “While he’s in there chatting with the merfolk, tell us what you are really looking for!?”
General Pepper “Was thinking about rescuing some of the missing people from Corneria, but it seems just a few of the civilians are feeling relaxed here.”
King Triceradon “I did remember buying some canine mermen from the dark Octillean, and they were very calm when arriving at our island home.”
General Pepper “Those were my soldiers who were in Corneria before. Guessing they are still wondering about their families since they were abducted by the dark Octillean soldiers.”
General Havoc “When the soldiers came through in a transport aquarium, they were saluting in-front of me knowing who was the big dog!”
Merman Soldier saluting under Havoc “And we are glad that you didn’t go hard on us, Sir!”
King Triceradon “Guessing that answers your odd reaction!?”
General Pepper “A human living with a big dinosaur humanoid. Are you two like roommates or something more closer?”
King Triceradon “We were both enemies before coming to this galaxy!”
General Havoc “Our factions made peace after a technical ceasefire, while we still fought. Later we had a truce after escaping our prison.”
General Pepper “So how long did you stay near Corneria?”
General Havoc “Not long after the Shredder was living on a distant planet, we found an isolated island to create our new suitable home.”
King Triceradon “Later on I needed some company, so we built a grand aquarium and bought our first arrivals to interact with.”
General Havoc “Most of the merfolk were bought from the Dark Octillean, and some were washed up wanderers looking for a place to live from other worlds that were either overpopulated or fell into corruption.”
King Triceradon “Havoc was training most of the mermen to defend their new home against enemy invaders. And I was trying to reassure the mermaids to make them feel welcomed in their protective sanctuary. I even fostered a young orphan mermaid to be my daughter.”
General Pepper “The Dark Octillean’s soldiers have captured lots of innocent families. No wonder he has sorted them into separate groups.”
King Triceradon “I believe he was trying to have the hostages separated from their loved ones, but I like them better together.”
General Pepper “Since Fox is still interacting with most of the merfolk residents in your Grand Aquarium, I would like to meet the young mermaid that you are fostering.”
King Triceradon “Of course! Havoc, I’ll be bringing Pepper to my bedroom to see my foster daughter.”
General Havoc “Okay! I’ll be watching Fox McCloud then.”

2023.06.05 04:35 Pink_Pens If I were to make a movie about a real life figure who passed away, why are some irl people allowed to be used without permission but others aren’t?
Like for example, there’s an animated movie called “Loving Vincent” about Vincent Van Gogh. But from my understanding more recent figures, like Jim Henson, John Lennon, Kurt Cobain or Stan Lee are off limits unless you get permission. Why is this? Does a certain amount of time have to pass until you can use them in stories or will they never be allowed to be used? And what if, say, you created a character that wasn’t Kurt Cobain, but rather a genetic clone of Kurt Cobain crated in a lab? Would that be allowed?

2023.06.05 04:31 Hot_Subject_1338 StarFox Alternate Timeline Story Dialogue Part III: The Triceraton’s Visit Part 1
Fox “Alright StarFox, I received intel from General Pepper about our latest assignment.”
Wolf “So what does the old dog need us for this time, Fox?”
Fox “Just to be Shredder’s undercover facility while he’s chatting with a Dark buyer…”
All StarFox members “WHAT!?”
Falco “Now why would we act as his servants? What is the purpose of this operation?”
Fox “General Pepper just wants us to gather information about the Collectors before planning to rescue the missing people.”
General Scales “Guessing you’ll be wearing your special clothes again?”
Fox “Right on the money there, Scales! While I am in my private aquarium again, you need to act as his servants and not reveal yourselves to the enemy.”
Falco “So we won’t capture the visitor, but just gather information to rescue the hostages. Got It!”
Fox “Thanks Falco!”
an hour later at the Floating Fortress
Shredder “Welcome back, StarFox! Are you prepared for the undercover assignment?”
Falco “I’m still feeling cautious about the strategy, but we are ready!”
Shredder “Good! Your uniforms are prepared in my bedroom.”
Krystal “Can I go with Fox to enter his private aquarium?”
Shredder “You are welcome to join Fox in his abode. I just need to think of something excusable that you’re temporarily added to my aquatic collection…”
Fox “Are you sure about this, Krystal?”
Krystal “I am quite sure, my love!”
Falco “Why do I look like a butler while the others are dressed differently?”
Shredder “My loyal servants are like ninjas, so I need you in formal clothing and be less suspicious.”
Scales “Guessing we’re Janitors, eh Wolf?”
Wolf “It’ll do the job easily…”
Maku “Seems your friend is almost here, and why am I dressed like a doctor!?”
Shredder “A perfect job for a kindhearted royal! Just be ready to aid your fellow merfolk Incase my friend would injure them from his uncontrollable anger.”
Maku “I’ll head to the infirmary then!”
at the private aquarium within the Shredder’s Grand Throne Room
Krystal “Is this where you slept in when you arrived here before?”
Fox “I actually came in an aquarium transport after going through the portal. Later he gave me a bigger Aquarium after handing a new shirt that I can wear.”
Krystal “I was relieved that we brought home the girls that you had adopted.”
Fox “Well I did let them enter my personal aquarium and heard what happened to their parents.”
Krystal “You are so kindhearted, Fox!”
Fox “Well, do you want snuggle on the bed while we wait for the Shredder’s friend to arrive?”
Krystal “Of course, my love!”

2023.06.05 04:23 Hot_Subject_1338 StarFox Alternate Timeline Story Dialogue Part II: Dark Krazoa possession & the Aparoid Queen
Wolf “No wonder you’re still wearing what Andorf gave you which gives me an advantage to have fun with a submissive toy.”
Fox “You dragged me into the prison hall and aren’t you supposed to be with Scales!?”
Wolf “Had to sneak away from his meeting to grab you unguarded!”
Fox “I need to contact my father, Andorf, about your lustrous behavior.”
Wolf “Sorry to disappoint you Fox, I had to disable the security cameras and received a change-inhibitor ring from the shopkeeper. So I’ll have a private sexual rapture with my prey…”
Fox “ANDORF, HELP ME!”
Krystal “Are you feeling better, Fox?”
Fox “I’m feeling a little better, but who’s bed am I sleeping on?”
Andorf “You’re all sleeping on my bed. When I sent one of Andrew’s camera drones to the prison hall, I saw Wolf raping my undefended Fox like a crazy lusty lunatic!”
Falco “We thought Fox was at Corneria with Bill, but seems like he was snatched by Wolf.”
Krystal “I sensed something dark in Wolf’s body like a forgotten Krazoa spirit.”
Fox “Is there a way to get the lustrous demon out of Wolf?”
Andorf “Was asking Scales to bring the special helpful guest.”
Fox “Wolf, your eye is bloodshot and glowing!”
Wolf “I’m sorry Fox, but the dark Krazoa spirit is controlling my body and is plotting to corrupt you! Please, kill me!”
Fox “We’re not going to lose you, Wolf! Even if I would let the demon enter my body to save you!”
Dark Krazoa “That could be arranged!” exits from Wolf’s body and enters Fox’s body with haste “Easily entered the foolish hero, but why can’t I control him?”
??? “Because his body is already occupied by my nanomites, silly demon!”
Wolf “You’re okay Fox, but who’s voice is that?”
Peppy “That voice… THE APAROID QUEEN!?”
Dark Krazoa “How are you protecting Fox?”
Aparoid Queen “Sent a scout to follow James years ago and he shot a small injector drone onto young Fox. Like a mother protecting her child, I was watching what Fox was experiencing.”
Fox “That’s my mother’s voice, but how were you able to mimic her?”
Aparoid Queen “My nano-mites can access the memories inside anyone’s head. The memories of your mother astounds me, so I ordered a ceasefire to bring my children home.”
Peppy “One of the Aparoids stayed with us and became General Pepper’s personal assistant at the Tower Headquarters.”
Dark Krazoa “You Cyber wench, turn off your bugs so I can corrupt McCloud!”
Aparoid Queen “I’d rather exorcise you out from Fox’s body before sending you back to your prison, Demon!”
Krystal “We will need a container to transport the corrupted Krazoa spirit!”
Bill “Hey Fox, are you feeling better?”
Fox “Without that dark spirit gone from my body, I’m going to be recovering and getting better…”
Bill “That’s good news for us, also I’ll be keeping my diving suit in case I would go for an underwater exploration again!”
Fox “Good to know!”
Bill “Another thing that is important to note, are you going to watch Fox from your home planet?”
Aparoid Queen “I was thinking of coming to Venom to be Andorf’s wife, so we can both watch and raise Fox together…”
Fox “I like that idea!”
Andorf blushing “That would be nice…”
Bill “Well I guess I should head back to Corneria now and debrief with General Pepper.”
Fox “Was nice to see you again and glad you enjoyed the adventure, Bill.”
Bill “Thank you for the opportunity to share your experience. Goodbye Fox!”
Fox “Goodbye and Good Luck, Bill!”
Falco “Are you feeling alright, Fox?”
Aparoid Queen “Was it a bad idea that I didn’t know what was happening in my database to make Fox aware of the image of his mother?”
Andorf “That is something that shouldn’t be allowed to happen in his memories…”
Falco “I’m guessing that one of your nanites has retrieved the terrifying memory from James McCloud that ended up in your database…?”
Aparoid Queen “I’m so sorry for not locking that memory, Fox!”
Fox “It’s alright. I just wanted to let her go and needed your comfort, ‘Mom’…”
General Scales “Hey Vep, are you feeling better?”
Fox “I’m doing alright, Scales. After seeing our mother’s death, I needed a little comfort from the Aparoid Queen to get back up again.”
General Scales “Glad you are here, little brother.”
Fox “Right back at ya, my big brother!”
General Scales “Another thing that I’m curious about, where is your tail-ring?”
Fox “I took it off and left it on my nightstand. Just heading to the pool to relax underwater.”
General Scales “Maybe I’ll come with you, Vep! I need to relax at the jacuzzi!”
Fox “Lets go together, my big brother!”

2023.06.05 04:22 1ce_dragon Want it official? Got it!
This happened at a 24-hour gym in Hong Kong. Since the gym is only staffed for limited hours, the gym goers are expected to do the cleaning and replace the weights after each use of the equipment. This is even written in the terms and conditions. Nonetheless, some of us slip on this rule once in a while, some because they are too exhausted and forgets to do so, while some are just lazy. Usually a reminder from fellow gym members would suffice to make things right.
But there came a group of foreigners with two blonde guys and an Asian girl a little more than a week ago. They didn't replace the weights correctly. The plates were randomly arranged on the rack, even though there are numbers on each bar to indicate what weight should be placed there.
'The weights need to be replaced correctly,' I reminded them in a friendly voice while helping them restore the positions of the weights.
They nodded and went to the next machine, and I resumed my workout.
The next day, the same group showed up again while I was working out, and they picked a chest press bench just in front of me. A couple of minutes later, they left the chest press bench in a mess and went to the dumbbell zone.
'Hey guys! The weights have to be replaced correctly,' I said with a sterner face as I walked to them.
The tall blonde guy, let's call him Larry, replied, ' Do you work here?'
'No, but-' I said, but was soon interrupted by Larry with a victorious smirk, 'Then have a nice day.'
'It's common courtesy to-' I tried to reason, but Larry kept dismissing me with 'Have a nice day'. I saw them laughing as I walked away. Maybe they were confident that no staff members would tell them off because most of our fellow citizens barely speaks English. Plus it is not staffed at the time of our workout so there is no way to get a staff member to talk to them.
Two days later, I went to the gym a bit late and didn't see Larry's group. It was then staffed. I walked into the staff room and there was John and working on some paperwork. I waited until John finished the document he was working on.
'How may I help you?' asked John plainly.
'There were a group of people that didn't replace the weights. I told them to but they wanted a staff member to talk to them,' I shrugged.
'Do you remember when and where they were working out?' To my surprise, I sensed a hint of eagerness, if not excitement, in John's voice. I didn't anticipate they would be willing to deal with these seemingly minor issues.
'Two days ago, around 11:30 at the chess press bench, ' I replied quickly.
John made a few quick taps on the computer, looking through the security cameras throughout the gym. A few moments later, he showed me a footage on the computer featuring Larry's group. 'Is this the group?' John asked. The eagerness in his voice could hardly be missed this time.
'Yes,' I replied.
'Thank you so much! We will identify their identity from the membership data and asked the chain they registered in to send them an official reminder,' John said, 'It has been a headache for us to keep having to replacing the weights for these people.'
I never see Larry's group again at the gym after that day.
TL;DR: A group of foreign gym goers dismissed my reminder of replacing the weights because I did not work there. Have them reported to the staff and they got a documented official reminder. The group disappeared from the gym ever after.
Edit: silly typo

2023.06.05 04:15 DeFy_DC Blitz - KING KENTA
Hideo Itami jumps straight to the main roster, wasting no time on NXT and staking his claim in the biggest promotion in the world after being one of the most sought after talents for decades. Itami debuts at SummerSlam 2014, accepting Cesaro’s United States Championship Open Challenge and shocking the world, defeating Cesaro and becoming a champion in his first night in the company. Cesaro is bewildered.
Itami makes his first defence of the United States Championship on Raw against Kofi Kingston, with his first major title program being in the form of the Celtic Warrior, Sheamus. At Night of Champions, Hideo Itami successfully defends the US Championship against Sheamus in a barn burner, a physical and brutal matchup demonstrating KENTA’s willpower. However, he is lead back to Cesaro following Night of Champions, who makes the claim that he has been vicariously studying Itami since his impromptu SummerSlam 2014 debut, and if he was to have a rematch for the United States Championship, he’d use it wisely. At Hell in a Cell, Cesaro and Itami are given 30 minutes and in an amazing Two out of Three Falls Match, Itami proves his worth once and for all, defeating Cesaro 2-1. After the match, the two shake hands.
Following Hell in a Cell, impressed by Itami’s talent, he gets an offer from The Authority to become an advocate. Itami goes back and forth, but instead sides with Team Cena at Survivor Series (taking Ryback’s spot) where he makes it far, however, is eliminated by the unstoppable Rusev in the second half of the match. The Authority punish Itami, and two weeks later on Raw, Itami drops the United States Championship to Rusev in what’s near enough a squash match. Itami instigates his rematch clause for TLC, with the stipulation being a Tables Match, however, Rusev takes the definitive victory there as well, continuing his menacing undefeated streak.
Going into the New Year, the options are open for Itami, as he enters the Royal Rumble Match, where he makes it to the final two with Daniel Bryan. The crowd go back and forth on their fan favourites, however, Daniel Bryan takes the victory. This frustrates Itami, who seeks Bryan out for a one-on-one match, with Bryan putting his Royal Rumble Winner Spot on the line. Fastlane is main evented by Daniel Bryan vs Hideo Itami, with Daniel Bryan winning after 27 minutes of brutal and physical action, reminiscient of the glory days of Ring of Honor.
At WrestleMania 31, Hideo Itami challenges Dean Ambrose for the Intercontinental Championship. Despite both men promising to keep the fight fair, even in light of the escalation of tension in the build, Itami goes back on his promise, turning heel on the night and low blowing Ambrose with the referee’s attention diverted. Itami hits a GTS and becomes the new Intercontinental Champion, the fans shocked. The next night on Raw, it is revealed that Hideo Itami is now aligned with Paul Heyman, who begins to cut promos on behalf of Itami.
At Extreme Rules, Dean Ambrose has a rematch with Hideo Itami for the Intercontinental Championship, with it being an Extreme Rules Match. Blood is shed and despite Itami’s efforts, Ambrose’s personal vendetta prevails as he wins back the Intercontinental Championship. However, Heyman assures Itami that the path for him is instead through the King of the Ring Tournament, which Itami steamrolls, defeating Dolph Ziggler in Round One, Tyson Kidd in the Semi-Finals and Neville in an amazing Final. As Itami sits on the throne, Paul Heyman declares him as King KENTA.
As part of winning the King of the Ring tournament, he becomes the Number One Contender for Seth Rollins’ WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Heyman cites that KENTA has won both the US and Intercontinental championships already, and the World Championship is imminent. In the main event of Payback, King KENTA and Seth Rollins go the full mile, it is a spectacle of a main event with Seth just edging the victory to the chagrin of Heyman. However, not all hope is lost, as King KENTA qualifies for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship Elimination Chamber Match at Elimination Chamber. In the match, also including Neville, Dolph Ziggler and Sheamus, KENTA eliminates Dean Ambrose, closing that chapter, however, is eventually eliminated by Rollins, who continues to get the upper hand over KENTA.
Running out of ideas, Heyman pleads his way into KENTA getting into the Money in the Bank Ladder Match. However, KENTA does not win, and the next night on Raw, Heyman ‘disposes’ of King KENTA to Brock Lesnar. KENTA takes it personally, and in the main event of Ryogoku at Beast in the East, Brock Lesnar and King KENTA show down, with KENTA now an anti-hero after his heel run. Lesnar is alienated in the moment, as KENTA beats him down, however, right before KENTA is about to win, Lesnar gets himself disqualified and beats KENTA down.
At Battleground, King KENTA challenges for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship once more, while also having a chance to fulfil his revenge on Paul Heyman and Brock Lesnar, as the main event is a triple threat match, Lesnar vs KENTA vs Rollins. To protect Lesnar, The Undertaker prevents Lesnar from winning and therefore King KENTA PINS Seth Rollins in a huge surprise and becomes WWE World Heavyweight Champion to close out Battleground.
At SummerSlam, Kevin Owens, who has recently come out of a feud with John Cena, challenges King KENTA for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, with Seth Rollins facing John Cena and The Undertaker facing Brock Lesnar as in real life. KENTA defends successfully against Kevin Owens, and defends against Chris Jericho at Night of Champions, however, at Survivor Series 2015, Roman Reigns defeats King KENTA to take the championship off him after five total successful defences.

2023.06.05 04:14 Inter_Sabellos Essenes and Catholic Sacraments
Were Jesus and the Apostles influenced by the Essenes? What are some differences between Essenes and the early Christians? It seems like a naturalist explanation for early Christianity could have its roots in Essenism. I know John Bergsma talks a lot about the similarities between the Essenes and the Christians as well as the similarities between passages in the Dead Sea Scrolls and the New Testament, but what are the differences? I have had a conversation with an atheist who stated that Christianity's teachings on Sacraments, eschatology, and the Temple originate in Essene Judaism. Responses and resources?

2023.06.05 04:13 Iworkformycat27 90-Day Fiance: Before the 90-Days, Moonstruck, An Episode Review
In Sharp Entertainemnt’s latest prod-uction, the only show with less self-control and more unrequited trauma than Gary Busey with a flamethrower, 90-Day Fiance: Before the 90-Days, we see our protagonists, introducing themselves to the world, and making a tri-, a return, will their love last, is it real, or, wait, are they talking to this person?
Amanda and Razvan
Amanda is a widow, her husband died of cancer, her children are half-orphans- and she is dating a year after losing her husband, she is fine, she is ready. Does Sharp Entertainment take Shriners Kids to bars and give them Cocaine because that’s what this, the death stuff is very sad, and the children but this.
Did Matt Sharp murder somebody, they are really trying to distract us with sympathy, you sociopath, the children's tears, I know, I know, but do you trust this, from Sharp Entertainment? I trust a raccoon in a whorehouse more than I do Sharp Entertainment eliciting sympathy.
Oh, they met on TikTok well, that, see, and he’s an actor and model, actors and models have a great track record, roll that beautiful disaster footage! Yep, they’re going to- stop beating up on a widow, I’m not, I’m beating up on the world.
Amanda goes to get a spray tan so she doesn’t get off the plane and look like a ghost, which honestly is a good idea, people kill ghosts in Romania, they are vampires. Amanda’s sister is also smart, she thinks Amanda is moving too fast and this relationship is a trainwreck, they are no Jack and Sally. She’s just trying to cover a void- she is totally being a Darcey, which makes her- where is her Florian? Is he also a wealth of wisdom and memes?
Amanda takes her two children to the park, to ignore them like Darcey, Aniko is currently climbing the trees with raccoons, her true family, mother abandoned me for two weeks, look that one is going for three, when are we going to raid a dumpster and film it for a Tiktok?
Amanda calls Ravan, and he has big romantic plans- that include shooting his music video, for his song, about her, also he did a porn, how many 90-Day Fiance Bingo categories does this cover?
Not David Murphey: Bawkawk!
Cultural Appropriation Crickets: My board needs to go to rehab.
Not David Murphey: Bawakawk!
Cultural Appropriation Crickets: Jump on that square, we need that toaster.
Signature bathtub toaster, enjoy breakfast and bathing in the most popular room- Natalie Wood commemorative life raft.
Cultural Appropriation Crickets: Come on Possessed Nespresso Machine!
Amanda buys her children some presents to bribe-
Not David Murphey: Bawkwak!
Cortney: What’s an asexual vibrator?
Amanda’s children have questions, along with the dad box which is a touching gesture but might become a meme, if it was the mom box it would be…mother boxes would be worse, trust me. Do they bring it everywhere? When they’re teenagers and, doing activities will they still have the dad box around? Serious question, I miss grandma but I don’t have a grandma box that I take into the bathroom with me, you’d be so proud of me grandpa, I had Taco Bell, I’m losing 10 pounds, so anyway how was your day?
Still dead? You’ve gotta get out more.
Gino and Jasmine
Jasmine has needs- $350 needs, $1750, Gino isn’t a gift guy but he likes sex. Which sex slave did these extensions come off of? That’s not funny, you’re right, it’s probably true. Want to know where the sparkles come from in makeup? Child labor. I’m sorry, I don’t know why I said that, I, people need to have real problems man. If Darcey enlisted in the army she would grow as a person.
Gino is going to go visit Jasmine in Panama, and show off his new clothes, and hats, and argue about sex and money. That Jasmine is spending at the doctor, for a tighter p****, did you know that Gino also has sex problems doctor? I’m going to tell the world about it! I’d like to teach Gino to c**, inside of me! This trip is their last chance, to get a pay raise, plastic surgery isn’t cheap. Is my rose chilled yet?
She’s getting drunk and doing a 90-Day Fiance review? Trust me, most people do. Most people also work, which upsets Jasmine, because she can’t talk to Gino as much, and spy on him, and hear his lies of approval, why won’t the US government let them be together?
Do they not believe in our love, or did Gino, who did the Visa Application by himself- Jasmine’s not stupid that might be it, she deserves a nice apartment, with their own bedroom, for sex, which starts a really sexy argument about fighting, and sex, and- I understand why the US Government doesn’t want them to be together.
This rose was not chilled yet, if you want to get drunk with me I am drinking Love Drunk Rose by Garage D’Or, Oregone, “When reality is better than your dreams!”, it’s quite good and very appropriate for the occasion.
Jasmine meets her totally platonic friend Dane at Coffee Max, she surprises him with the news that she’s hsi new neighbor, also, they used to date, you can’t bring enough autistic neurodivergent trans women into this to make this- might have just spoiled something for you, the violin is growing.
Jasmine and Gino’s trust issues definitely won’t- flash forwards to my favorite promo, it’ll be fine, if not, Dane and his muscular, good advice, is here, for you, in the same apartment building.
Riley and Violet
Riley is a big Jazz fan, and Elton John, also, he’s an elderly Luke Cage, who can’t dance, and is paranoid about life! Which is understandable given his history, is Elton John single? He’s very pretty, and rich. Is Riley the problem? A woman literally ran away from him.
Riley specifically downloaded a Vietnamese dating app, and found the youngest looking 43 year old woman in the world. Who is also smart, and clever, and so good Riley learned SOME Vietnamese, also, if you flip on your woman in Vietnam that means you love her, this is fine. Violet understands him.
Riley goes to help his friends with their Juneteenth celebration, where they will.
A Bless this relationship
B Sit around a campfire and sing Kumbaya
C Sell some Boombod
D Doubt this entire relationship and bring up evidence supporting their case
Did you pick D? How did you know, he’s bringing a ring, are they done doubting this, no, Violet does sound a little sus, they might- are they having food? God I love cornbread, it’s better to learn that your fiance is Evil Rose over cornbread. My grandma could die, again, but if you told me that over Honey Cake, I, I might be a sociopath, or hungry.
Tyray and Carmella
Is he playing an instrument and singing, this is his first, oh no, at least he isn’t on a boat. Tyray take care of his sick mother, his father was murdered- how many people did Matt Sharp kill? When will the tables turn on this one? Tyray is in love with Carmella, a woman who is real, whose face he has- the table just yeeted itself into a wall, yep, this, and his family doesn’t-
Satan: When did we get train tracks?
When- dodge! Ah, there it, I can’t stop looking at it, is that a car? No, that was Not David Murphey’s Taco Bell dinner- who gave him Taco Bell?
The producers also have bad news, and they tell Tyray in person, which-
Archangel Gabriel: Let me the f*** in your house!
Get off my lawn!
Archangel Gabriel: You are witnessing a miracle, one of your solar-powered lights is out.
Tyray has been messaging a man. So that’s-
Archangel Gabriel: I’m watering your flowers, you’re welcome!
This is going to be fun next week.
David and Sheila
A deaf guy, Matt Sharp is just a serial killer now, and he has multiple minimum-wage jobs? Subbed anime is really the best. Boarding school, and not being able to connect with people- is David Matt Sharp’s accomplice? There’s the music, here comes the wom- nope, it’s his ex-wah-man, here comes the new one, who is learning sign language!
What a- and he’s sending her money, which she does need, and $3,000 isn’t much, Caesar pocket change. But someone has to be suspicious.
I give this episode ⅘ stars, the highlight was Gino and Jasmine sticking to the traditional script, they’re not doing any of this sympathy bullshit, no, they, how many people did Matt Sharp murder? More representation and tragedy is coming next week, was Matt Sharp Jack the Ripper?
At least they'll start arguing next week, the one thing they’re supposed to be doing, and bangin’, that is also, sometimes it’s their job. Is that possessed Nespresso machine still up there? I never go swimming, I wouldn’t use the life raft.

2023.06.05 04:12 eclipsenow Does the "Small Israel" / aleph theory of the Exodus and Numbers impact Innerancy of Scripture?
THE HISTORICAL PROBLEM OF A LARGE ISRAEL
Numbers 1 in our English bibles 603 thousand military men which would make Israel a conquering super-power across the whole Middle East - like China vs Taiwan against any of the nations of the period. We think the Egyptian army at the Battle of Kadesh - possibly the generation before Moses - had about 53,000 men. With a 12 to 1 ratio, why was Moses pleading with Pharaoh instead of marching up onto the throne himself and kicking the Egyptians out of the place?
THE BIBLICAL PROBLEM OF A LARGE ISRAEL
The bible presents Israel as smaller than the surrounding nations. Deuteronomy 9:1–2 says:
“Hear, Israel: You are now about to cross the Jordan to go in and dispossess nations greater
than you, with large cities that have walls up to the sky. 2
The people are strong and tall—Anakites! You know about them and have heard it said: “Who can stand up against the Anakites?””
Each of the seven individual Canaanite realms was “more numerous and mightier than” Israel - Deut 7:1. Only Moab expresses fear over Israel’s size: Numbers 22:3.
Israel’s success is all down to God - Deut 7:7 says “The Lord did not set his affection on you and choose you because you were more numerous than other peoples, for you were the fewest of all peoples.” In fact, God reassures Israel not to be afraid! “But the people who live there are powerful, and the cities are fortified and very large.” (Numbers 13:28). Or try Deut 7:17 “You may say to yourselves, “These nations are stronger than we are. How can we drive them out?”
Then there is the problem of the census of the Levites and the firstborn from the rest of the tribes of Israel. This whole story is about Israel dedicating their firstborn to God - and a little mathematics around subtracting how many Levites already serve God full time - just to be fair. The problem? There’s only just over 20,000 firstborn! Accounting for boys and girls to stretch just over 20,000 breeding couples out to over 2.5 MILLION Israelites (600,000 military males) each family would have to have something like 30 to 50 boys and another 30 to 50 girls each - so something like 60 to 100 children per family! Numbers 3:39
There’s clearly something wrong. Also, they didn’t have enough people to invade and take over the land all at once. It was going to take time or the land wold lie fallow and abandoned because there were so few Israelite’s! Deut 7:22 “22
The Lord your God will drive out those nations before you, little by little. You will not be allowed to eliminate them all at once, or the wild animals will multiply around you.” But a nation of 2 to 2.5 MILLION people on the move would have sent their super-power military sweeping across the land and moved in to work the whole land at once!
HOW DID THE NUMBERS GET SO BIG IN NUMBERS?
I love the “Undeceptions” podcast by my friend John Dickson. Here he’s covering the historicity of Moses, interviewing an Egyptologist about both the archaeology of Egypt and what internal evidence there might be in the bible about Moses and the Exodus, and Semites generally in Egypt. It’s a great episode - and well worth listening to in its own right. But there is a short conversation about how the Hebrew numbers are actually not numerals as we use them, but words. The word for ‘thousand’ also in some places means ‘unit’ or ‘troop’. https://undeceptions.com/podcast/the-exodus/
For quick reference, as “Got questions” summarises where aleph is used this way under “Option Two: Small Israel; Misinterpretation of the Hebrew”
sis’sāh vav arbā’im ‘elep vav hamēs mē’owt. The traditional, literal translation is “six and forty thousand and five hundred,” usually rendered as “46,500.”
However, two words in this phrase are subject to variations: ‘elep and vav. The term ‘elep (or ‘eleph) is used elsewhere in Scripture as a reference to groups, not a literal number, including descriptions of Israel during and after the exodus. It is applied to tribes (Numbers 10:4), clans (Joshua 22:14; Judges 6:15; Micah 5:1), families (Joshua 22:21), and divisions (Numbers 1:16). Further, the connecting word vav can mean “and,” but it can also mean “or,” depending on context. Exodus 21:15 and Exodus 21:17, for instance, use vav to say that certain sins are committed against one’s father “or” mother. If ‘elep is a reference to groups of some sort (not numerical thousands), and the second vav in the phrase is understood to mean “or,” then Numbers 1:21 would be translated “six and forty clans, or five hundred.” The tribe of Reuben, then, would have had 500 fighting men from 46 family groups. https://www.gotquestions.org/Israelites-exodus.html
For a fuller mathematical analysis based on the first born census, try here. You’ll have to log in with a google address for free access, but I found it to be a good read. https://www.jstor.org/stable/1585502?read-now=1&seq=11#page_scan_tab_contents
(Log in, look to the right button where it says “Alternative methods” and read online for free.)
IF ALL THIS IS TRUE…
…it means that a scribe from some later century made some assumptions and added the text together. EG: The total of the census in Numbers 1: 46 would have been 558 Troops vas (or) 5,550 men. But written out in Hebrew, with the original use of aleph fading over time, you can see the temptation for a scribe many centuries later - possibly AD - to add the numbers together. 558 troops counted as thousands and then adding in the 5550 men equals the totals in Numbers 1:46.
It could easily be the same story in Exodus 12:37.
My question: if this is indeed the case - is inerrancy even at stake? Would we be worried about some weird inconsistency in say the chapters and numbers added in by monks at a later date?
