As someone who's well versed in gothic metal this is a solid list for anyone that wants to get into this music. Though I'd replace HIM with The Gathering or Theatre of Tragedy and instead of Gothic from Paradise Lost, replace it with Draconian Times.

2023.05.29 03:43 its_vf Craig O’Donoghue: Walyalup’s Jye Amiss is worth weight in gold thanks to set shot goalkicking accuracy
The footy world needs to start talking about the magnificence of Jye Amiss’ set shot goalkicking.
The Walyalup (Fremantle) forward is the beacon of hope amid an industry which is struggling to seize opportunities in front of the big sticks.
Time and time again we are watching players missing set shots. Yet Amiss has now kicked a goal from 10 of his last 11 set shots.
It’s an extraordinary figure which belies what we are seeing elsewhere. If you’re a Dockers midfielder streaming through the centre of the ground, it must be an amazing feeling to know that your key forward is so reliable once he has the ball in his hands.
Make no mistake, Walyalup’s seven-point win over Narrm on Saturday was achieved through accuracy from their set shots.
The Dockers had 11 set shots for the day and kicked nine goals. Melbourne had 14 and booted five. The Demons’ tally included shots that failed to even score.
The contrast was clear late in the match. Kossie Pickett missed with 7:20 remaining and 10 points the difference. Three minutes later, Jacob van Rooyen also missed to reduce the deficit to nine points. And with 65 seconds left, Angus Brayshaw also missed a set shot opportunity.
When the Dockers had chances in front of goal, they made the moment count.
Amiss was recruited with everyone knowing that he was an accurate kick. He booted 65.22 while playing colts footy for East Perth.
But it’s one thing to be accurate on a Saturday morning when playing with your mates, it’s another to stand up under the pressure of AFL with thousands of people at the ground.
HIs technique is unique. Amiss is slow and steady with his momentum only building late in his approach. It’s a repeatable action and one he is clearly confident in.
Amiss is a teenager in his second season. He’s played 13 games. Players with more experience would love to be kicking like him.
On Friday night, Carlton had 10 set shots and kicked only three goals from them.
West Coast had 11 set shots on Saturday night for four majors. The Western Bulldogs sprayed three of their set shots so badly against Gold Coast that they didn’t even score.
On Sunday, Ken Hinkley must have been going crazy watching his team dominating the final quarter against Richmond and being unable put them away. Darcy Byrne-Jones missed a set shot with 14 minutes left and then didn’t even want to take the next opportunity he got moments later.
Lachie Jones then missed with eight minutes remaining and instead of the Power having a match winning lead, they were in front by only 11 points after kicking 8.17.
I’ll repeat. Amiss has nailed 10 of his last 11 set shots.
Imagine being a defender playing on him. There’s enormous pressure knowing that if he takes a mark, the ball will almost certainly be sailing through for a goal.
Clubs spend days analysing games looking for any type of edge on the opposition. Recruiters endure cold, wintry days trying to find talent. Players put their bodies on the line trying to get the ball forward. It’s soul destroying when opportunities are missed.
Athletes around the world struggle when the game stops and everyone focuses on them.
Whether it’s serving in tennis, a free throw in basketball or pulling out the driver in golf, executing skills in a controlled environment somehow seems harder that doing it under pressure. The mind plays tricks, and when one player misses, suddenly the pressure builds on everyone else.
We’ve seen it happen on massive stages. West Coast kicked 8.13 in the 2015 grand final. But Dom Sheed became a hero with a set shot goal which will live on forever in 2018.
The Dockers booted 8.14 in their 2013 grand final loss. Hawthorn lost in 2012 after kicking 11.15 to Sydney’s 14.7.
St Kilda fans remember their 9.14 in the 2009 grand final, while Geelong fans will never forget Cam Mooney missing a set shot on the half-time siren on grand final day in 2008. That was a massive moment.
Which brings us back to Amiss. He’s a kid, but he’s the future. Key forwards who kick goals earn a hell of a lot of money throughout their careers. Key forwards who take marks and then miss their chances earn plenty too, and constantly leave their fans immensely frustrated.
We celebrate a lot of things in footy. The high mark is awesome. The courage to keep your eyes on the ball is amazing. Dribbling goals from the pocket makes your head spin.
But the reliability of lining up for goal with a set shot and sending the ball directly over the umpire’s head time and time again, is the thing that truly matters. Amiss doesn’t miss and that makes him an incredibly valuable commodity.

2023.05.29 03:41 Competitive_Phone673 Why natural rights fail to justify private property

The French economist Thomas Piketty once wrote:
Every human society must justify its inequalities: unless reasons for them are found, the whole political and social edifice stands in danger of collapse. Every epoch therefore develops a range of contradictory discourses and ideologies for the purpose of legitimizing the inequality that already exists or that people be­lieve should exist. From these discourses emerge certain economic, social, and political rules, which people then use to make sense of the ambient social struc­ture. Out of the clash of contradictory discourses—a clash that is at once eco­nomic, social, and political—comes a dominant narrative or narratives, which bolster the existing inequality regime.
Property is the core justification for the poverty, hierarchy, and inequality inherent to capitalism. Why can't an unhoused person sleep in an empty home? The landlord owns it. Why can't a hungry person take food from a store? The store owns it. The opposition takes a cold-not-cruel stance, with Murray Rothbard declaring that:
if a man aggresses against another's person or property to save his own life, he may or may not be acting morally in so doing. [. . .] Regardless of whether his action is moral or immoral, by any criterion, he is still a criminal aggressor against the property of another, and the victim is within his right to repel that aggression by force, and to prosecute the aggressor afterward for his crime
These responses are based on the presumption that property is derived from a just code of ethics. In this post, I challenge this presumption and critically examine the philosophical foundations of the properietary world we live in. I start by defining the natural rights framework of property, then I explain why admixture doesn't work, then I explain the historical implications of admixture, and finally I explain why an individualist approach to property doesn't make sense.

The Admixture Theory, Explanation With Quotes

Contemporary property is mainly justified using the admixture theory. As the argument goes, individuals own themselves, therefore they own their labor, therefore they own whatever they mix their labor with. On the acquisition of property, John Locke, the father of liberalism, wrote:
The labour of his body, and the work of his hands, we may say, are properly his. Whatsoever then he removes out of the state that nature hath provided, and left it in, he hath mixed his labour with, and joined to it something that is his own, and thereby makes it his property.
Propertarians (known as "libertarians" in America) make a similar argument, although it supposes the Earth as unowned by default, instead of Locke who supposed the Earth to be the common inheritance of everybody. This nuance is why liberals believe that property should be subject to the well-being of others, and propertarians believe that property should be absolute. In an article describing Rothbard's views, David Gordon wrote:
Once one accepts self-ownership the justification for private property soon follows. Each person owns his own labor. Does he not have a right, then, to what he produces by means of that labor? To deny this is to revert once more to slavery; it is to say that other people have the right to control your labor.
Amixture can therefore be summed up as: "an ethical theory which supposes that labor legitimizes property claims." In particular, I'll be evaluating the argument that (a) individuals have a property right in their own body, (b) therefore individuals have a property right in their own labor, and (c) therefore they have a property right in whatever they mix their labor with.

Mixing Labor

There are two issues with mixing labor: a) labor can't be owned, and b) labor can't be mixed with the material world.
Lysander Spooner describes property as:
a right of absolute dominion over a commodity, whether the owner wish to retain it in his own actual possession and use, or not.
Whoever has just control over an object is its proprietor, and others must respect the authority of the proprietor and only interact with the object or space on the proprietor's terms. This relationship doesn't make sense when applied to concepts beyond the material world.
Labor is not an object. It is not a space that can be occupied. It is an action. It doesn't make sense for an action to have an owner. A surgeon doesn't own the operations they perform. A baseball player doesn't own the swings they hit. A traveler doesn't own the kilometers they walked.
In order for a thing to be owned, the proprietor must be able to exclude others from it. Others must be able to interact with it. Nobody can interact with an action. They can only interact with the thing that performs the action. Therefore, individuals may own themselves, but the actions they perform cannot be owned.
As a corollary, actions cannot be mixed with the material world. Substances can be mixed. Actions aren't substances. In reality, "mixing labor" is simply a metaphor for "doing work." That is, changing the material world.
Property theorists supposed that, by combining something owned with something unowned, the unowned thing becomes owned. Since labor cannot be owned or mixed with the material world, this justification is no longer valid, since the individual never mixed something that is theirs with an unowned object. Therefore just appropriation according to this framework cannot occur.

The Arbitrary Nature Of Admixture

Property is arbitrary. This is not necessarily something we need (or are able to) correct. However, those who claim to have a universal solution to property need to face this fact.
Consider self-ownership. Living things are not static. We constantly ingest, inhale, exhale, and shed. All atoms that make up a person are bound to change. If these atoms that make up a person were once owned, and the owner hasn't consented to relinquishing ownership, then does a maid aggress against the property of somebody when they vacuum hair off a carpet or dust their skin cells from a counter? You might claim that the owner implicitly relinquished ownership. That's fine, but how does that work? By what rules do owners implicitly relinquish their property?
If a mosquito sucks my blood without consent, then sucks the blood of somebody else and in the process transfers some of my blood to them, do I still own that part of my body? Can I ask that person to return my blood to me? Maybe ownership only counts for atoms that I actively use or possess. In that case, why doesn't property beyond my body work the same way?
If I justly own a bucket of water and its contents evaporate and disperse into the atmosphere, do I own the atmosphere? After all, I mixed something owned (water) with something unowned (the atmosphere). Maybe I didn't mix enough of what I own with the atmosphere. In that case, how much of what I own do I need to mix with something that is unowned for me to appropriate it?
Let's examine land. If I plow a field, how much do I actually own? Do I own the atoms that my plow touches? How far down is the soil mine? Can somebody homestead just a few centimeters away from my farm in an area that I haven't touched?
With some thought, a believer in admixture could answer these questions. But would those answers be objective? If even one question here doesn't have an objective answer, then admixture itself is arbitrary, and that's okay. However, this means that any ethical framework built on admixture can't assert itself as the one truly ethical way to govern society throughout all space and time.

Admixture Is An Appeal To Desert

Admixture is an appeal to desert. It's justified through an emotional appeal that someone deserves their property (which is not necessarily bad, just arbitrary). Usually propertarians take an example that everybody can agree on, like an artist owning a sculpture they create. Murray Rothbard wrote:
put baldly, there are very few who would not concede the monstrous injustice of confiscating the sculptor's property
This very personal version of property that barely effects other people is then used as a foundation to justify other property that have led to conquest, consolidation, and tyranny.
Some anti-propertarians might say that the artist is justified in keeping the sculpture not because they mixed their labor with it, but because they're using it personally and not harming anyone else.

The Historical Implications Admixture

Frederick Engels wrote:
Every change in the social order, every revolution in property relations, is the necessary consequence of the creation of new forces of production which no longer fit into the old property relations.
Private property has not always existed.
When, towards the end of the Middle Ages, there arose a new mode of production which could not be carried on under the then existing feudal and guild forms of property, this manufacture, which had outgrown the old property relations, created a new property form, private property. And for manufacture and the earliest stage of development of big industry, private property was the only possible property form; the social order based on it was the only possible social order.
The admixture theory fails to understand property within the context of history as a relation that changes with the development of society, instead asserting itself as a universal moral truth to be applied throughout all of time. The admixture theory has not been a universal truth, or a truth at all for that matter, until the rise of liberalism during the enlightenment. Feudal property, the divine right of kings, slavery, and corporate systems of property all existed before (and even coexisted with) liberalism.
Not to mention war, conquest, and in particular, theft of the commons, where farmland was forcefully seized from peasants and placed into the hands of the property owning class where it was subsequently passed on from generation to generation, setting the precedent of concentrated power for centuries to come. This process was called "primitive accumulation," and it's the reason why Karl Marx criticized property as "idyllic" when in the first volume when he wrote:
as soon as the question of property crops up, it becomes a sacred duty to proclaim the intellectual food of the infant as the one thing fit for all ages and for all stages of development. In actual history it is notorious that conquest, enslavement, robbery, murder, briefly force, play the great part. In the tender annals of Political Economy, the idyllic reigns from time immemorial. Right and “labour” were from all time the sole means of enrichment, the present year of course always excepted. As a matter of fact, the methods of primitive accumulation are anything but idyllic.
The amixture theory is literally incapable of processing and correcting theft on such a massive scale that has occurred since time immemorial. How do you correct ancient robbery such as that of the commons? To ignore the claims of ancient people is to ignore the self-ownership of millions, yet there's no clean way to correct the mess of illegitimate property we now find ourselves in. During my research, I did find an answer to this question. Murray Rothbard wrote:
In this case of what we might call "feudalism" or "land monopoly," the feudal or monopolist landlords have no legitimate claim to the property. The current "tenants," or peasants, should be the absolute owners of their property, and, as in the case of slavery, the land titles should be transferred to the peasants, without compensation to the monopoly landlords.
There are two issues with this solution. Firstly, any chance for a legitimate voluntary trade (or any record of such a trade) while the land was illegitimately occupied has been long lost to history. We have no record or way of knowing who the legitimate proprietor of any land is that has been seized in the past during primitive accumulation. Secondly, the theft extends beyond just the land. If wealth was generated based on an illegitimate property claim, it then follows that the wealth is illegitimate too, therefore it must be returned to the people who it was stolen from, who are long dead with countless unknown decedents.
In reality, fixing the mess of illegitimate property we have on our hands will never happen, for both a lack of records and a lack of practicality. The answer to all of this is simple: abandon a conception of property based on divine metaphysical connections to the owner, and instead view property as a relation that changes with the development of society.

The Material World Is Inescapably Collectivist

An individualist approach to property doesn't account for the fact that the universe is used collectively. What one individual does with their property can effect the life and liberty of another. Murray Rothbard tried to address this in the Libertarian Manifesto, but it ended up blowing the whole idea of property out of the water:
in the case of air pollution we are dealing not so much with private property in the air as with protecting private property in one’s lungs, fields, and orchards. The vital fact about air pollution is that the polluter sends unwanted and unbidden pollutants—from smoke to nuclear radiation to sulfur oxides—through the air and into the lungs of innocent victims, as well as onto their material property. All such emanations which injure person or property constitute aggression against the private property of the victims. Air pollution, after all, is just as much aggression as committing arson against another’s property or injuring him physically
Rothbard did not expand on the implications of this afterward, because if he did, the idea of property would unravel. This implies that actions that harm others are illegitimate uses of property. This includes methane from cattle, carbon dioxide from power plants, tire particles from cars, lithium from batteries, over-fishing, over-hunting, excessive noise, and the list goes on. All these have been demonstrated to harm people beyond the property, in some cases even around the globe.
This pales in comparison to the biggest effect of acquiring property; that it takes others' liberty. Before private acquisition, others' were free to walk upon and enjoy the land, after acquisition, they're not. Robert Nozick wrote:
It will be implausible to view improving an object as giving full ownership to it, if the stock of unowned objects that might be improved is limited. For an object’s coming under one person’s ownership changes the situation of all others. Whereas previous they were at liberty (in Hohfeld’s sense) to use the object, they now no longer are.
This doesn't mean that restricting public access is bad in all cases. All this demonstrates the need for a more democratic model of property; because the effects of property are collectivist, whether we like that or not.


The point of this post isn't that property is bad or that all property should belong to a collectivist hivemind. It's that the natural rights approach is just a story that we tell ourselves. When we consider the actual nature of matter history and matter, we realize that mixing labor doesn't actually exist.
Whatever form of property should replace admixture is beyond the scope of this post. But we need to understand that property has always been a relationship that changes with the development of society. Claiming that there's only one true way that property can exist is nonsense.

2023.05.29 03:40 Familiar-Leopard-341 Dublin men

To all the men,women and children.
Today was a random Sunday night no one expected to be busy. A regular warm day where all the Irish poke their heads out to have a sneaky pint mid 20 degree weather. Today I decided to go to my bfs work party. Everything started off well him being kind and compassionate and sober. A few drinks had passed and a few convos have been exchanged when we had decided mutually to go to a club where one of my bfs coworkers claimed she was called a cunt by me ( I don’t recall calling anyone a cunt and I was like 3 drinks in)
My partner had decided I was in my foul mood when the convo was me gone d and they had decided the only way to fix it was by screaming and chasing me around south Dublin. I know you may all be thinking if a guy is grabbing my hair you would scream and shout for a taxi.. that’s exactly what I did
EXCEPT For the fact that only one random twenty year old guy asked me if I was ok. My heart will forever watch over that dude.
A guy who didn’t know me chose to check on me over my own boyfriend
That’s the moment I knew all hope was lost in my relationship and lifestyle in Ireland
Please note I’m not sharing this for attention more so for awareness
To those taxi drivers watching men dominate young girls into going places or doing this please shout and to the taxi drivers who feel voiceless watching women’s get thrown around like dolls
Please speak up If not for the women For their children
To the taxi drivers who watched me suffer in silence
Please don’t let another girl run away screaming from a man please protect her it may be your daughter one day

2023.05.29 03:35 JankyJokester My pool is probably considered a war crime against other pools for existing. *Long post*

TL;DR at the bottom

Story time I thought ya'll might get a laugh out of. Also, any advice on what to keep an eye out for or suggestions on attempting to maintain my monstrosity are welcome.

So, I bought a house back in last December. Has an inground pool on the property that is 20x50. Now I was always poor growing up never had a pool nor friends that did so mind you I have not a clue about a single thing about them at this point. Now it looked like the liner of this pool had seen better days but serviceable for a year or three until I could deal with that. Now I'm sure some of you are already cringing but don't worry it gets worse.

Winter had come to an end started getting warmer, so I decided to start looking into this thing, with some heavy "encouragement" from my young kid. So, knowing absolutely nothing I decide to wait and enlist a local professional to evaluate the situation. The pool guy shows up to take a look and quote me, I go out with him and help remove its winter cover, and thus the horror story begins.

The pool was virtually empty aside from two to three feet in the deep end. Now I bet you'd think it was a leak and I'm being dramatic, oh no no dear reader, for some ungodly reason the previous owner just...drained it (this has since been tested and irrefutable). Didn't say a word about it. It had water in it at one point while I was looking at the home. Should I have kept an eye on it and known sooner? Probably. Was I naive and was like welp just don't touch it until spring? Yeap. Well, you guessed it from and older already kind of rough liner, the bloody thing shrank. This caused a lot of areas being pulled out from the coping and a pretty rough tear at the far skimmer. I am about to find out how expensive pools are.

So, the pool guy took a look and assessed the damage. Obviously, I am going to need a new liner and to add to the fun he determined the coping was pretty much shot and would also need to be replaced. He said without digging into it he would estimate it was going to cost me 10k to 13k. Spoiler alert not going to happen this year not even close I am far from wealthy, and this was simply not an option. So, I asked him if there is anything at all we could at least try so my daughter would not be absolutely devasted her summer swimming dream was gone. He gives me instructions and shows me how to pull the liner and use liner lock to hold it in place and then advises me to fill the pool until it's about 18inches away from the lowest spot that will need help and we will see if it'll be remotely possible.

Some areas worked out. Others, others did not. I wouldn't be writing this right now if it had gone well. Now many other minor areas aside there were three major areas that would obviously need something done about. The liner had shrunk too much. No matter how much I tried every time I got a good amount of water in about a 10-to-12-foot length of liner would pull out of the coping even with the liner lock and would sag down to about 16-to-18 inches at its lowest point. The corner where the ladder would go in the shallow end had the same sort of issue but worse. The corners aren't 90 degrees it is a diagonal slant from wall to wall. This spot ended up being about 8-foot total starting on one wall going across the diagonal to the other wall, about 22 inches at its lowest point. Then to top it off, that tear at the skimmer got worse, but was by far the easiest problem to solve.

As you would expect, and as I feared he came and looked and gave me the news, there is no saving it. Cover it back up until I could afford to have to have it redone. However, growing up how I did I am quite resourceful and find ways to make things work through some creative engineering. So, with the professional taping out, limited on resources I thought to myself, why not try? What's the worst the happens? The same outcome I already have. It's already FUBAR, it isn't like I can make it worse since my current option is just cover it. And who knows maybe it works and I am my kid's hero.

After some time doing research (if you could call it then more like plotting like a man who has lost their damn mind), a buddy of mine in tow, and plenty of beer, the plan was put into action. We secured the sagging liner to the pool wall the best we could with some sort of waterproof epoxy type thing that could be removed so wouldn't cause any new permanent damage. I had gotten my hands on some new pool liner vinyl that was large enough to cover all the areas we need. Cut out pieces to size and shape, used vinyl cement initially to secure the piece to the original liner all the way up to the coping. Once secured ran another bit of the vinyl cement along the seam, honestly this idea occurred as a why not, shouldn't hurt? Then just for good measure went over the seam once again with a healthy dose of flex paste. After that we secured the new liner pieces into the coping with liner lock. Also, we decided to leave slack in these pieces with the thought of if there is more stretching instead of tearing or pulling it out maybe the slack would allow it to not end badly. This process was repeated over all 3 of the major danger zones. Now there are some jacked up small spots here and there as well but honestly, I could not care less about them until we discovered if Frankenpool had any hope.

We filled the pool to about 2 inches below the lowest giant red flag to simulate as much water weight as I could to see if the situation would worsen and if we had any hope. Three weeks on monitoring and taking measurements there was no change, a glimmer of hope. As of this weekend we filled the quilt, I mean pool to its intended water line. As we watched...and waited.....and changes in the liner water loss. I'm not going to lie I'm not sure about my partner in unspeakable crimes against pools, but I was absolutely shocked. I was expecting some sort of catastrophic failure at our unspeakable "repairs".

Now I am not stupid, I know this isn't going to last. In fact, it probably has no right to have made it this far. If it makes it the year even if it ends up requiring more minor Frankenstein treatment, I will be speechless. But hope remains....and is only growing stronger. Pump and filter are fully functioning. And beginning the cleaning process.

If you made it this far feel free to call me as dumb as an idea as I had in attempting this. But also, any advice on how to keep this thing going or what potential problems to watch for although it begs to be put out of its misery, please let me know! Or any questions in what exactly we had done or just questioning my sanity.

Don't know the first thing about pools. Previous owner set me up for worse failure. Went evil scientist to "fix" the unfixable because why not? Now I have Frakenpool that looks like it's from Fallout. But currently it is working so far.

2023.05.29 03:33 DelbertCornstubble Why does this Charlie's Angels collectable exist?

Why does this Charlie's Angels collectable exist?

Why this car?
I found this in a Target toy section. I'm not a connoisseur of collectables but this caught my eye.
This is a 1974 Ford Torino Brougham, a poop-brown fleet sedan designed in the aesthetic nadir of 1973. Perfect as a company car for a nursing home inspector, the real McCoy probably smelled like Virginia Slims and McDonalds fries cooked the Old Way. Not a sports car, not the 'Gran' Torino of Starsky and Hutch with beefy haunches and 5-slot aluminum rims. This is a plainer-than-vanilla vehicle where every extant example should now be rusting in the middle of a forty-year-old crushed cube. Why are we resurrecting it now?
But wait. Was this car driven by Bosley or the Angels? Maybe Farrah's feathered hair flowing through the open window sold the car? Ah-- 'Corinthian Leather' came out with the 1974 Chrysler Imperial LeBaron. Was this a direct competitor sporting Ford's own leather knockoff? Maybe 'Athenian Leather' product placement? So...after I Googled and Binged, even using ChatGPT, I have no idea why this replica was greenlighted.
It turns out this car wasn't driven by any significant or recurring character. It appears in exactly one episode, s1e22, and was a generic police detective's sedan driven by a dirty lieutenant on the vice squad played by Ed Lauter, who got gut-shot at the climax never to be seen again. The car is shown for about a minute of the episode over a few scenes, does not get in any car chase, and does not figure into the plot in any way.
The car's only importance is cradling Kate Jackson's behind in the passenger seat for most of its single minute of airtime in a single episode. That's it. But why actually commission a 1/64 scale replica of this homely car surrounding said behind? And for distribution in the Target toy department next to the Hot Wheels loop-de-loops? So many questions.
What is the minimum number of units a Target retail corporate purchaser normally acquires? What is the sales demographic for this product other than the utterly confused, except for a few eBay sellers who figure that if a thing has no reason to exist, maybe it's worth double? It's not like a coin's mint error or a misprinted postage stamp, it's a whole object! The whole object should not exist in a rational universe.
There’s a site that catalogues movie cars. Here's the car in question, and all cars shown in the whole series. Note that this car isn't even linked to Charlie's Angel's in the above database. So of all the cars in Charlie’s Angels, who greenlighted this replica? Did the company cast lots? Roll dice? Go on a peyote-fueled vision quest? Who is the employee that said, “Alfa Romeo Spider, no… Datsun 280z, no… DANG, I’m gonna model the hell outta that brown 1974 Ford Torino Brougham!”
I can't figure it out. Who was proud of shrinking and emulating this automotive and television non-entity? Whose business acumen approved a product with a niche thinner than the paper in a pocket New Testament?
The back blurb makes it even better:
"A Graduate of the Los Angeles Police Academy, Foxy Jill is a carefree and fun-loving California girl with a great flair for beguiling any male she encounters. She's sporty and athletic, and even goes on to become a champion race car driver."
Oh, it’s for Foxy Jill played by Farrah herself, but not the Angel who actually sat in the car. Foxy Jill beguiles any male she encounters. I thought it was via her swimsuit poster, but no, she cruises for males of the species in her hideous sedan. A sedan she never drove in the show.
Jill is sporty and athletic. The exact opposite of the packaged car. Maybe the car started out as a Ford GT40 and Jill used vampiric powers to suck out all the sportiness and athleticism and we’re left with the shriveled husk of the Ford Torino Brougham.
And finally Foxy Jill goes on to become a champion race car driver. Practicing in this car, that she never drove during that single minute of that single episode.
The whole backstory in the blurb for this product is a complete invention and therefore they could pick any one of the myriad of sport cars featured in the show. But no, we must decorate our shelves with the poop-brown 1974 Ford Torino Brougham driven by a one-episode bad guy of the week who was never seen again. They could at least put Ed Lauter's face on the box.
I mean.. imagine if a company that makes 1/64 replica cars decided to license Batman from DC, and instead of the Batmobile, commissioned a replica of Bruce Wayne's country club golf cart. That's what this is.
Someone please tell me why this collectable exists.

  1. Congratulations Don Jr., after a contentious primary with Matt Rosendale and Greg Gianforte, you have emerged victorious in the Republican primary. What will be your opening statement as you pivot towards the general Montana senate election with Jon Tester?

  1. Due to the rural nature of Montana, the average Montanan spends more on gas than almost any other state in the country, and as gas prices continue to rise, what would you do to lower them?

  1. RNG. Your father, who is running for president from within a prison cell, has asked if you could attend one of his rallies that are being held from just outside his prison cell where he will be visible to the large crowd through the window of his prison cell in New York. Would you like to attend this rally outside the prison?

  1. Inflation continues to ravage the nation. How will you put an end to it?

  1. The destructive conflict between Ukraine and Russia continues to go on. How will you put an end to it if at all?

  1. China has repeatedly made threats against Taiwan, and there have been fears that China might invade Taiwan. How will you prevent this from happening?

  1. There continue to be migrants and drugs that are flowing across the southern border. What would you do to stop this from happening?

8. Jon Tester, despite being a senator from Montana, one of the most pro-gun states in America, strongly came out in favor of gun control after the Uvalde shooting. What is your opinion on gun control?

  1. Abortion has become an increasingly important issue throughout America, how will you deal with this issue

  1. Now onto more state-centered issues. The state of Montana has an enormous amount of agriculture, farms, and ranches, and the amount they make has been decreasing. How will you plan to deal with this

  1. RNG Will you agree to debate Jon Tester?

  1. RNG You are meeting with Libertarian candidate Rick Breckenridge, to see if you can convince him to drop out and endorse you.

  1. There's no way around it. Although you own a ranch in Montana, Montana is not your state of permanent residence and many view you as a carpet bagger. How do you plan to respond?

  1. Which Montana Republican would you like to go on tour with today?

  1. News has broken out about how your girlfriend, Kimberly Gilfoyle, has been fired from Fox News for sexual harassment. How do you want to do damage control?

  1. How would you like to attack Jon Tester if at all?

  1. One interesting idea that has been proposed by many Democrats is to put abortion clinics on Native American reservations, as their lands aren’t governed by the US. Montana has some of the most native reservations in the country. What are your thoughts on this?

  1. Not to talk too much about abortion, but a new bill has been proposed in the Montana State House that would criminalize pregnant Montanans for traveling out of state or out of the country to receive an abortion elsewhere. What are your thoughts on this bill?

  1. RNG. The Montana state legislature has just passed new laws banning Tribal ID cards and requiring you to present your address to vote, which Native Americans on reservations don’t have as a way to stop Native Americans, who disproportionately vote Democrat, from voting. What are your thoughts on this?

  1. You have talked about reducing the amount of money that we spend to reduce inflation. Where would you like to make cuts in spending

  1. Jon Tester has attacked you with an attack ad of you speaking with your father and Rudi Giuliani at the Save America rally on January 6th where you tell the crowd to stand up and fight as they proceed to walk towards the capital and invade it. How will you react

  1. Montana has one of the slowest internet speeds in the country due to its rural location. Would you be willing to spend government money to increase the internet speed in Montana?

  1. Do you plan to pass more laws to engage in culture wars and ban drag story hour, and critical race theory

  1. What will be your ending message as this campaign draws to a close?

  1. Where in Montana will you spend your last days campaigning

2023.05.29 03:22 PrettyGirlChaz431 I need some encouragement

I just had a thought about driving and looked up stuff online but didn't read much yet. Is that bad I don't have a license or car at age 34? I might not be able to drive cuz of my vision but I do wanna move. I don't wanna live in this city forever coming back home to this same place (my apartment). Sometimes I feel like I'll never be truly happy cuz I don't drive. I thought it would be nice to get inside a car and just go but I can't do that and might not be able to so I stress sometimes cuz I feel like without a car I probably can't move. Is anyone else in a somewhat similar situation or just don't drive for some reason? Please give me some kinda encouragement cuz I hate feeling like this 😔
I'm in Ohio and the public transit is ok, we just have buses in this city and access to uber or lyft. I think about people in NY cuz I know the transit is so much better there. Not sure what other places have really good transit where people might not want cars. I would probably feel better if I move.
Another thing is nobody in my family tried to help me drive. My so called half sister took me for the vision part years ago but I didn't pass it but nobody tried to help me.
Btw I couldn't post this in "encouragement" so I posted it here. Not sure where else I could've posted but please let me know.

2023.05.29 03:11 Zetectic Moving Recommendations Needed (NY to GA)

I lived in NY for over 14 years.. but my new job is going to be in GA, 2 hours away from Atlanta..
I'll start that job in August.. Not much is set in stone just yet. I'm just a bit lost on what to do as for moving and settling in. My family will be here in NY.
I have PC, Monitors, Electronics, Clothes, idk what else. Maybe some legal documents.. Expecting probably 10-15 of 11x11 inch boxes w/ 20-40 lbs?
I plan to visit Home Depot and get sturdier boxes or if anyone knows a good sturdy box sellers. Please recommend it to me.
Should I use Uhaul and drive down to Atlanta? Or is it better to just fly down and ask my parents to ship it via UPS? What'd be the general cost for both of these options respectively?
I just need more clear idea.. because if I settle and like the new job, my family plans to move down there as well. But taking a trip down to GA and back to NY in Uhaul sounds like a hard thing to do... Idk if Uhaul allows the vehicle to be dropped off at Atlanta location and if they can fly back, that'd make much more sense though.
People who have moved to a far different state, please share your thoughts and experiences.

2023.05.29 03:09 its_vf Fremantle Dockers round 11 report card: Ruck quandary after Luke Jackson shines in win

A year to the day since the Dockers announced themselves as premiership contenders at the home of football, Walyalup blew the finals race open, writes ELIZA REILLY in her round 11 report card.
There’s something about Walyalup playing Naarm at the MCG.
A year to the day since the Dockers announced themselves as premiership contenders at the home of football, Walyalup blew the finals race open with a thrilling seven-point win over the Demons.
Here is the Dockers’ round 11 report card.


Luke Jackson: It was always going to be a big day for the premiership Demon up against his old side, yet that day got a lot bigger when ruck sidekick Sean Darcy hobbled to the bench with a hamstring injury early in the second quarter. Having played as a midfielder in the first quarter, Jackson assumed the mantle of Walyalup’s No.1 ruck and thrived. Willed himself to contest after contest and limited the influence of Max Gawn and Brodie Grundy, while having a big one himself. It begs the question: should the ruck split be more even when Darcy returns?
Andrew Brayshaw: Cheekily told his helmeted brother Angus to ‘strap in’ and while his older sibling was doing damage on the outside, Brayshaw got to work in the middle. His evasive powers were on full display, fighting his way through traffic to send Walyalup forward, including a crucial inside 50 lace-out pass late to Bailey Banfield, who kicked the sealer. His past month has been exceptional.
Hayden Young: Was highlighted by Justin Longmuir as one of the Dockers who had come the furthest during pre-season and now we’re starting to see why. Was the biggest driver of the footy on the ground, with a game-high 644m gained from 27 touches. That’s the attacking side of Young but it came from nine intercept possessions. He was also exceptional in the air.
Jye Amiss: You’d hope the folks at AFL house were watching because it’s getting harder and harder to overlook Amiss for a Rising Star nomination. External recognition or not, Amiss is growing before our eyes. He’s hitting the scoreboard like a seasoned key forward, not a kid, adding another three goals to his tally to take the lead in Walyalup’s goalkicking stakes. His ability to impact the contest and follow up like a small forward is mightily impressive.


Matthew Johnson: So much composure for someone so young. Playing his first full game back since suspension, Johnson continues to prove wrong the countless clubs who overlooked him in the 2021 draft. He’s strong in the core and hard to bring down, and his decision-making is excellent, especially that kick in traffic out to a wing that he could’ve easily bombed forward. Used the ball at 75 per cent and sent the footy inside 50 six times.
Ethan Hughes: Had some shaky moments but overall, he looks a lot more settled back in defence after a subpar start to the season on the wing. While Pearce, Cox and Ryan will get all the headlines, it suits Hughes to slip under the radar and focus purely on his opponent. But against the Demons, Hughes also won back the footy a few times and got himself involved in going back the other way with eight marks.


Brandon Walker: Harsh given he’s played on and won battles against some of the league’s best small forwards in the past few weeks, but Walker got taught a lesson by Kysaiah Pickett. At his best, which he was close to on Saturday, Pickett is an incredibly hard match-up for any defender. Walker can match him for speed but the Dockers defender just lost touch a few times and paid the price; Pickett had two goals and seven score involvements. A lesson learnt for next time.
Skill errors and connection: It ultimately wasn’t costly but some of Walyalup’s early-season demons came back to haunt it in the first half. Probably a symptom of Naarm’s elite pressure, the Dockers fumbled more than they have in the past few weeks and skill errors cost them a few looks, especially going inside 50. Walyalup struggled early to hit that final kick inside 50, in a flashback to its past midfield-forward connection issues. An in-form team would’ve found a way to punish the Dockers but the Demons were having the same issues up the other end.

The focus this week

Rest and recovery. Fremantle arrives at its mid-season bye with a 6-5 record and very much in contention for the top eight. Players and coaches are on a four-day break, with some choosing to remain in Melbourne and spend time with family and friends. All will return to the club later this week, with a Saturday night clash with Richmond back home on the horizon.
Speaking of recovery, the Dockers will get an extra week to make progress on Sean Darcy’s hamstring injury. Michael Walters is on track to return after the bye; his scans revealed a strained calf. Defender Heath Chapman still has around a month to go in his comeback from a hamstring injury, while the Dockers are still yet to place a timeline on Matt Taberner’s rehab from back surgery but are confident he’ll return this season.
The most pressing focus for Fremantle is Wednesday’s mid-season draft. The Dockers have one list spot available, which they are expected to fill. Potential target Robert Hansen Jr missed his final draft audition with Subiaco due to illness but you’d think Fremantle has seen enough to make a decision on the small forward.

2023.05.29 03:03 1mhotepp Multiple Skip Apps on Same Device

I went to pick up an order tonight and looked over another drivers shoulder cause I’m nosey AF. Noticed the person had two skip apps open at the same time. One on the top of his phone and the other at the bottom. At first I was rather angry as there are already not enough orders to go around. Now I am more curious how they got this setup to work. The driver also had at least one door dash app open as well. Can anyone shed some light on this ? Does skip even care that people do this ? Spitefully I wrote down their license plate…

2023.05.29 03:00 Possible-Interest-59 Valid tickets on the rail replacement buses

Many years ago I was advised by a rail replacement bus driver for the Northern Line that a valid train ticket was needed to be on the rail replacement bus. Whilst I’ve used rail replacement buses many times and never been asked for one, I was wondering how true that was? When using the rail replacement bus, I tended to use Finchley Central or West Finchley- both of which (esp West Finchley) would involve a good few minute walk to the train station and back to tap in/out if that is true.
I always questioned both if I’d then be allowed in the train station where the rail replacement bus is going (eg if the rail replacement bus was up until Archway and then I boarded the train at Archway if the staff there would cause an issue) but also how the ‘time out’ would be effected as your journey can only be X amount long otherwise you get charged a considerable amount (as they think you’re fair avoiding)

2023.05.29 02:55 mminnoww What would cause a garage door opener to stop working suddenly for a day, and start working again?

I purchased a home this month. Two days ago the garage door opener suddenly stopped working, almost as if it completely lost power. It's a a Craftsman 1/2 HP unit, model 13953995SRT (the online manual dates it to 2003, but I don't know when it was made or installed). It was bricked: there were no lights on the main unit, no light on the wall button, and no response to any button presses. Pressing the "lock" button had no effect. The electrical outlet was working and the circuit breaker was fine, so I assumed the unit was dead (such poor timing!).
I purchased a new belt drive unit on my way back home from my weekend trip, and planned to install it myself today -- but discovered that the door was working again upon my arrival.
What could explain this? I purchased the property alone, and am the only one with access to the home. Part of me would like to return the new unit, but another part of me thinks I should just replace it while it's on my mind. I just wish I knew why it stopped working in the first place.

2023.05.29 02:55 TravelAdvanced Entire User Account/Files Disappearing from System and Storage?

Trying to figure out what happened with my wife's system. I can't fathom what happened.
The windows license is tied to a generic outlook email account, which was the admin account for the PC. She had been logging into what I would've assumed was a local account- it had her name, not the outlook email for the license, and she had her own pin.
She went to turn on the computer and log-in, and it brought her to the license account admin account sign-in and there was no sign of the previous account name she had been using or any indication it had ever existed.
I signed into the admin account and it had only some drivers install files I had initially downloaded for her- no other signs of use from the past 2 years. I hadn't touched the PC since handing it over to her.
Here's where I'm particularly confused- I pulled the only storage device on her PC out of the system and plugged it into my primary system via a usb adapter.
I cannot find a single file on the SSD that indicates that she had used the computer in the past couple years- even though I know that she did, when working from home, etc... I've used both file explorer and ridnacs to try and find any of the files she had downloaded, or any indication of another user on the ssd, but couldn't. Nothing in hidden folders or anything.
I've never heard of this type of issue- is it possible windows 'hid' her user profile, as well as its files, on the ssd? Is there any reason to believe there is something to save on the ssd that looks bare- just the windows install and the dozen files I downloaded initially? Any idea at all how this could have happened?
Edit: PC was an ITX system I built with a 5600g, an nvme ssd, an MSI ITX AM4 mb, 16gb ddr4.
