Choices for Oaklawn Park April 1, 2023 Arkansas Derby Day

2023.03.30 20:49 hodsct59 Choices for Oaklawn Park April 1, 2023 Arkansas Derby Day

Here are my choices for races 1-9 for Oaklawn Park April 1, 2023 Arkansas Derby Day. I will post the other races probably sometime tomorrow after I look them over good and type why I am taking a chance on them. Like last week at FG, there are some races that a longshot or two looks live and then other races where it will be hard to deny the top 3 or 4 favorites. And as always, my interest lies in finding those longshots and betting them when I think I have found one. Good Luck to all!
1st Race; Maiden Special Weight --- Purse $110,000 ---- 3 YO Fillies --- 6 Furlongs:
1)Sharp Attitude (12-1) has two starts, finishing 2nd in fillies' division of the Arizona Breeders Futurity a restricted state bred races for 2 YO. In her second start, she drew the 7th post on a sloppy track at OP, did not break near as well as her bloodlines suggests she should, then went widest of all without ever getting involved in the race. That race is essentially a toss for me, and I will give her another chance. Trainer is adding blinkers for this race, she has one average looking work since her last start, but trainer is switching jockeys and has named Luis Quinonez, a long time OP jockey who is known for blowing up the exotics here when dismissed in betting. Her sire is Sharp Azteca who won the G1 Cigar Mile H one month after finishing 2nd in the G1 BC Dirt Mile, beating a solid field. Broodmare sire, Rocky Bar, won one listed stake among his five lifetime wins but is a son of the speedy In Excess, who is also sire of Indian Charlie and is dam, To The Post, is a daughter of Bold Ego. 5x4 to Mr Prospector but she has a cross to Chop Chop, a son of Flares, in Storm Bird's dam line and in her own dam line along with U.S. TC winner Omaha, a full brother to Flares, also in her dam line. Crossing in the sire lines and dam lines with important stallions/broodmares is what has been reproducing the X-factor gene since it was first developed, especially if they are in a few choice spots. My choice to win.
6) Mary's Boon (6-1) caught off tracks in her first two and only starts, battled for the lead through very brisk and identical paces, but lost the battle both times to the eventual winners, one a highly regarded odds on favorite and then a first-time starter with solid bloodlines who was dismissed in the wagering. Should be the one that controls the pace early and have something left in the stretch. Though she has no works since her last, she does have a high percentage winning trainer and bloodlines to win early and often in her career. Likely to be live. 4x4 to Mr Prospector, 5x5 to Secretariat. Extremely well bred.
2) Goddess Of War (12-1) is a first-time starter. She has been on the work tab for quite some time and has shown some ability in about half of her works. However, what separates her from other firsters is she has worked multiple times at 5 furlongs, which is what most trainers nowadays uses as a stamina building work and clues you in to many high-priced winners when several of them are decent or good. She did most of her preparations at Turf Paradise but shipped into OP a few weeks ago and worked a deceptive good 4 furlongs, especially coming off a long van ride and then an easy 5 furlongs six days later that was a designed leg stretcher to keep her happy until race day. Her sire, Atta Boy Roy, won a G2 sprint and several other smaller stake races among his 14 wins in 36 starts and broodmare sire, Sky Mesa, won 3 of 6 starts including the G1 7F Hopeful S and G2 1 1/16M Breeders' Futurity. 4x5 to Seattle Slew, but in wrong spots to fully benefit a foal but gets help with crossings to Secretariat and his 2 best dirt producing daughters along with a Bold Rule daughter as the fifth dam. Also 5x4 to Northern Dancer in the right location of a pedigree.
8) Beautiful Bolt (4-1) has started once, on a sloppy track, and like my top choice drew the far outside and really was at a disadvantage but he still set in a perfect spot entering the stretch while watching two front runners battle but then faded. Jockey started this meet extremely hot in December but has cooled considerably. One decent work since his last work and has the bloodlines to win this race. It will be a matter if he can improve off his first race enough to beat a couple of these. 5x5 to Northern Dancer, Sir Ivor and Secretariat with 4 crosses to Somethingroyal through her sons Secretariat and Sir Gaylord, sire of Sir Ivor.
My Risks: $5 Ex Box 1-6, $1 Tri Box 1-2-6, $.30 Super Box 1-2-6-8, $1 Super Key 1 with 2-6-8 with 2-6-8 with 2-6-8. Total Risks $29.20.
Race 2: Allowance O/C 25K ---N/W $23K Twice Lifetime (Means 23K in winning purses in allowance races including state bred) --- Purse $125,000 ---- 3 YO & Up F&M Arkansas Bred --- 6 Furlongs:
4) Chai Tea (4-1) has won once in 18 starts but qualifies as the class of the field. This race is restricted to state bred foes but at least 5 of her starts has come in open bred fields, including 4 allowance races and one starter allowance 50K in addition to finishing 4th in a 150K state bred stakes race 2 starts back. Likely to get good odds because jockey and trainer has been in a meet long slump but have teamed up before to shock bettors several times at OP. Top choice in a weak field.
9) Hamazing Debating (8-1) finished 3rd in her last race at 60-1 and is actually the horse that renewed my confidence and realizing my slump was likely nearing an end, if I continued to pay attention and working hard. While I missed that exacta (1st & 3rd), I did have my usual tri box. I thought she needed one more race before reaching her best form but was in a weak field with the two favorites from that race entered here again. She now has that needed start and could win but her jockey has not even been close to performing up to his usual standard at the meet. However, he is a decent jockey and it is only a matter of time before he snaps out of it.
7) Pattern Bet (5-1) was the beaten second choice three weeks back against my second choice today. She is closest to returning to her top form, but she could very well need one more start. Trainer is not following his usual pattern with this one and seems to be trying to run her back into shape instead of using works, and this could be because she has a minor physical ailment he's trying to protect or she simply doesn't apply herself in her works, making it difficult to see where she is in her training. I will be using caution, but she probably does not need her best race to win this, just something close to it.
6) She's Storming (20-1) is a 3 yo filly but is technically carrying top weight on the weight for age scale. Otherwise, she would be further up my list but it is way too early for a 3 YO to be giving their elders weight. She will not actually be turning 3 YO until the day after this race. However, her 7th dam, Right About, is a daughter of U.S. TC winner Citation and Right About's dam, Whirl Right, is a full sister to 1941 U.S. TC winner, Whirlaway. She has one work since her last start and it was a bullet work at 5 furlongs, the best of 16 that worked at that distance on that day. But it came on a good track and times are often wrong or deceiving on most off tracks, due to temporary track bias.
My Bets: $5 Ex Box 4-9, $.50 Tri Box 4-7-9, $.30 Super Box 4-6-7-9. Total Risks $20.20.
Race 3: Allowance Which Have Not Won An Allowance Race Worth $23K To Winner Or Never Won Two Lifetime Races --- Purse $125,000 ---- 3 YO & Up F&M ---- 5 1/2 Furlongs:
8) Hypersport (9-5) looks to me will be the one that gets the early lead and it is very difficult to catch the front running speed at 5 1/2 furlongs at OP. Normally do not like betting horse that ran well on off tracks in their prior starts, but I will make an exception for this one mainly because she is coming back in 23 days and has two works, both leg stretching types, but both indicates trainer thinks she is sharp and peeking into her best form. A definite include in the exotics. 4x4x5 to Mr Prospector, 5x5x5 to Northern Dancer.
6) Thunders Rocknroll (12-1) broke her maiden in her first start against Minnesota state bred fillies in good time. However, like most other states, state bred types rarely produces horses that can be competitive against open bred foes. She then finished second in a state bred stakes before getting an almost six-month break. She switched trainers and looks like she was nearing a winning race on her return, but still needed a few more works but trainer decided to go ahead and run her, likely to give her an out before this start, which is carrying a purse $20K higher than a normal conditional allowance race at OP carries. But trouble found her, mostly of her own doing and the race looks dull on paper. She has two works since that start, both designed to get her closer to top physical conditioning without taking anything fitness already put in her out of her. and now will be racing with blinkers off. Her sire, Maclean's Music, made one lifetime start at SA and ran a 107 3/5 in a maiden race and was retired afterwards. Broodmare sire Thunder Gulch won the 1995 Ky Derby and Belmont S while finishing 3rd in the Preakness to his stablemate, Timber Country and is the sire of Point Given, who was unplaced in the 2001 Ky Derby then won the 2001 Preakness S and Belmont S. 4x5x4 to Mr Prospector, 5x5 to Northern Dancer.
1)Je Suis Rapide (20-1) was claimed three starts back by her current connections, worked twice at CD, then was raised several levels in class at TP made a bid to the stretch but flattening out in the stretch. Sent back to CD, given a few extra days to rest, then shipped much further to CT and raised again significantly in class into condition allowance class where she tracked the early pace but could not catch a 1/5 favorite while pulling away from the rest and finished 2nd while still trying in a good time for that bull ring type track. Sent back to CD but was given normal rest this time, then worked twice, the first was deceptive good then an easy work to help maintain her fitness and then shipped to OP to wait for her next start. 4x4x5 to Mr Prospector, 5x5x5 to Gold Digger.
7) Rollin Chrome (9-2) is the only filly in here that has won a conditional allowance race, but her winning purse was $19.2K, therefore, giving her an opportunity to run in this race. However, she is switching trainers and has no activity since her race over a month ago, usually an indication to look elsewhere to find horses more ready and fit to win. New trainer has been around awhile, including during the era when trainers prepared horses away from the track (to save money and fees), so this is likely his angle with this one. 4x5x4 to Mr Prospector, 5x5 to Northern Dancer.
My Risks: $4 Ex Box 6-8, $1 Tri Box 1-6-8, $1 Super 1-6-7 with 8 with 1-6-7 with 1-6-7. Total Risk $20.
Race 4: Maiden Special Weight --- Purse $110,000 --- 3 YOs & Up ---- 6 Furlongs:
2) Kingmaker (12-1) finished 3rd in the first start of his career with a decent late kick but like so many first-time starters that runs well, he struggled after that start. After 4 more disappointing effects, trainer gave him a few months break and decided to start over. He was working well for his return then probably put in slower work than the trainer really wanted to see at that time but then showed at least his late kick was still there to give his trainer something to work with. He has four more works since that comeback start, 3 of them useful and the 4th work was in the mud and was what looks like a leg stretching work to maintain his fitness more than to move him forward. Kingmaker is as ready to win as he has ever been and looks like the one to me. 4x5x5 to Mr Prospector, 5x5 to Northern Dancer & Secretariat.
6) Federal Judge (8-1) is a first-time starter. He was purchased for $200K as a yearling. First entered the official work tab last May to give new connections a real look of what they purchased, and he has shown he has some early speed through a series of 6-7 works. Given another six months to grow and mature, he re-entered the work tab at the start of this year. After 3 works at Win Star farm to begin this year, he was shipped to OP and turned over to trainer Brissett to prepare him for his debut. His works indicates he can turn it on or off according to what the jockey is asking him to do, which is what most trainers wants to see from their new trainees. His last two works are fairly fast but his last at 5 furlongs is what separates first start winners from ones who needs a start or two (at 5 furlongs or more) to perform their best. 4x5 to Mr Prospector, 5x5x5 to Northern Dancer.
7) Miracle Worker (7-5) finished 3rd in his first start, when he sat mid pack early behind a brisk early pace then came with a late run when called upon. Same tactics here will likely get the win but there is always the possibility he gets head strong with a new jockey he is not familiar with and battles for the early lead, with plenty signed up, that he tires late, and others take advantage. I personally normally prefer betting others that did not have a decent break or race in their first start than one like this who looks like he ran his race but could not finished the job unless the race was ran in a fast time. And in this case, the finish time was normal for maidens but slightly faster than normal for all classes at this track.
4) P R Call Me Maybe (30-1) has started 3 times and these races will all be tosses for me as he was prepared in all three starts by a trainer that has no idea how to train a racehorse and gave this horse not even a small chance to run a little, much less to impact a race. New owners got a harsh lesson that it takes a trainer who has at least a little knowledge on how to train and has switched trainers. Under his tutelage, the horse's works have improved and actually looks like a racehorse finally. Not likely to be in his top form yet, but if he is, he will blow this field away just on bloodlines. His sire did not win in six starts. His broodmare sire, Lion Heart, finished 2nd in the 2004 Ky Derby to Smarty Jones and is sire of top sprint sire, Kantharos. Sire of 2nd dam, Yankee Victor won the 2000 G1 Metropolitan H. Sire of 3rd dam, Mining, a son of Mr P by a daughter of Buckpasser, won 6 times in seven starts including the G1 Vosburgh and only loss came in the BC Sprint in his final start. Sire of 4th dam, Run Dusty Run finished 2nd in the Ky Derby and Belmont S and 3rd in the Preakness S to 1977 U.S. TC winner Seattle Slew. And sire of 5th dam, First Landing, finished 3rd in the Ky Derby and then sired 1972 Ky Derby & Belmont S winner, Riva Ridge. This is one underneath chance that I am always willing to take a chance on and have been rewarded several times on such chances.
My Risks: $5 Ex Box 2-6, $1 Tri Box 2-4-6, $.20 Super Box 2-4-6-7, $1 Super Key 2 with 4-6-7 with 4-6-7. Total Risk $26.80.
Race 5: Oaklawn Mile S ---- Purse $400,000 --- 4 YO & Up ---- 1 Mile:
I will be passing this race.
Race 6: Maiden Special Weight --- Purse $110,000 ---- 3 YO & UP F&M Arkansas Bred ---- 6 Furlongs:
7) Arden Ar (20-1) will be making her first start of year. She has made two starts prior, one in 2021 where she finished second while rallying from last and then one start in 2022 a year later when she did not pick up her feet in a dull effort. This will be her third different trainer in as many starts but the first that has gotten any speed out of her in any of her works. Bred to be speedy and catches a field of Arkansas Bred fillies that looks weak on speed. 3x5x4 to Mr Prospector, 5x5 to Seattle Slew. 2nd dam is a full sister to Tiznow.
4) Delta Moon (12-1) had quite a few works at 3 and 4 furlongs in 2021 but connections decided she needed more time to develop. Brought back in mid 2022, she had one 3-furlong work and then a series of 4 furlongs works but no stamina building 5-furlongs works which is important especially for first time starters to perform their best. She ran a dull first race while never getting in serious contention, waited until OP opened in December and then race two more dull races on off tracks. Owner switched trainers and he put a 4-furlong gate work in her followed by 2 good 5 furlongs works in her before her next start and she finally showed a little life but broke slowly, gained some ground then was bother by another foe stopping her momentum but was rolling late. Trouble has found her in each of her last three starts and she will be a major factor if she can finally avoid getting in trouble. 4x4 to Cox's Ridge, 4x5x5 to Mr Prospector 5x5 to Damascus and Laughter (daughter of Shenanigans and 1/2 sister to Ruffian). Longshot special.
2) Sassy Lass (8-1) has started three times, finishing third in her last two starts. In her first and third starts, she caught off tracks and broke poorly in both of them, which eliminated her from being a serious contender and while she finished third in her last, she was still almost 8 lengths behind the winner. She is bred to have some early speed and in the one start she was dropped into a maiden claiming she flashed that speed but came up empty in the stretch run, likely because she had never been given a stamina type work up to that point. She has no works since her last start, which is always a concern fitness wise, but this field is weak enough it may not matter as much as it usually does. Her sire, Double Irish, is an unraced son of Tapit while her broodmare sire is Half Ours, is a son of Unbridled's Song and his dam, Zing, is a full sister to Yankee Gentleman, the broodmare sire of American Pharoah. Half Ours won his first 5 starts of his 7-start career including a G2 7F sprint. Sassy Lass's dam line traces back to Spinaway. If other speed types do not get out with her early, she will likely wire this field. 4x4 to Fappiano, 5x5 to Mr Prospector.
8) Princess Hadley (20-1) has one start which she broke sluggish, was mid-pack at first call, continue to the turn in good position but tired going around the turn and faded. However, her fading appears much worse than it actually was as top two took advantage of moisture in the track, though the track was listed as fast and pulled away from everyone and then the 3rd place finisher got separation and pulled away from the rest in mid-stretch and at the finish was almost a combined 14 lengths of the 4th place finisher while actually slowing and laboring them shelves.
My Risks: $10 WP 4, $5 Ex Box 4-7, $1 Tri Box 2-4-7, $.30 Super Box 2-4-7-8, $1 Super Key 4 with 2-7-8 with 2-7-8 with 2-7-8. Total Risks: $49.20.
Race 7: Allowance O/C $50K N/W 2 Allowance/Stakes Races with a $23K value to winner (state bred races not considered) or which have never won 3 races or $50K claiming --- Purse $125,000 ---- 3 YOs & Up --- 6 Furlongs:
1)Mowins (30-1) looks like he went off form after a third against Indiana Bred stakes horses but actually his poor efforts came after he was thrown against open bred foes which fields come up much tougher and there is 4-5 more horses with ability to beat every race than a typical state bred race. But another problem is he has caught an off track in every start against open bred and that alone can should down the process of getting back into top condition. It is hard enough to cycle form on fast tracks, but trainer rarely knows if a horse's race is result of the off track or if the horse found the race useful enough to move him forward. This one probably likes the off track as he had 1 win in 2 tries on a wet track before his last four starts but now his wet track form is misleading. However, his last effort was the first time he tried to run late against open bred and he is likely returning to his top form. Three more leg stretching type works since his last start and his last work before his last start signals, he was coming around before that effort. Likely to be live at solid odds.
5) Much Better (12-1) used to be a class horse when he was younger but could not beat those type horses. However, he has shown he can off an 8-month break in top condition and win in first start back. For horses coming back off a six-month or longer break, I normally try to determine how far along a horse was in circling back to his top form and this will determine how many works and/or races he needs to get ready. I personally believe only horses that has proven they were in top form when trainers stopped on them are eligible to win first start back with a few good works and even then, needs a slight drop-in class to accomplish it. This one look like he was nearing the end of his off-form cycle and has worked 6 times for his return, including 2 bullet works followed by a stamina builder and last work was a leg stretcher type but was too close to race day for anything more serious. Made need one race but has proven he will keep trying until he tires and can no longer match strides with horses running late.
2) Sir Wellington (15-1) is also coming off a six-month break and will be making his first start of the year. I also believe he was nearing the end of his off-form cycle though he had a win in the middle of his cycle, not because he was in form but because he caught an easy low-class field, and he was in form enough to race 5 furlongs and easily beat them as the odds-on favorite. He has 7 works for his return which features 5 rather slow works to begin with followed by 2 more serious works that signals he is getting closer to his best form. Trainer wins at a high percentage and does well with his trainees returning off breaks. Chance to win but I will wait at least one before risking any WP money on him.
4) Osbourne (5-2) is likely reaching the end of his top form cycle because after a win in N/W 2 lifetime allowance level, he was dropped into this class and came running on a sloppy track to finish 2nd. However, it has been over a month since that start, and he does not have a work since which indicates trainer has identified a minor ailment or he thinks the horse took too long to recover from last and needed rest more than physical activity to keep his peak form. Betting horse races is full of tough calls but can be very rewarding if you learn to make those calls and happen to be right. If right on this occasion, he should finish third or worse. Bottom of the exotics only for me.
I will pass on the 6) Straight No Chaser as he will fast but also a proven quitter who runs as fast as he can as far as he can, then stops with or without pressure. Like his sire line but even the best sires have progeny that stops without a good reason. He has run only on the fastest big track dirt in the U.S. at SA with GP and Monmouth dirt tracks the only big tracks that can have similar times on occasions. Smaller tracks like Los Alamitos, Turf Paradise, Emerald Downs, and all dirt tracks in New Mexico have similar dirt tracks that can be considered as fast as SA. Quitters, like over bet favorites, are not worth the risks ever.
My Risks: $5 Ex Box 1-5, $1 Tri Box 1-2-5, $.30 Super Box 1-2-4-5, $1 Super 1 with 2-4-5 with 2-4-5 with 2-4-5. Total Risks: $29.20.
Race 8: Hot Springs Stakes --- Purse $200,000 --- 3 YOs ---- One Mile:
4) Cactus (8-1) has started twice and has 2 wins. His 1st start came in maiden claiming $30K race where he sat 7th early and then came running with a late charge and kicked clear to win going away and was claimed out of that race by his current connections. Entered back in an O/C $50K, he again raced near the back past the first quarter, then edge closer into the turn, took the lead into the stretch and was clear by 1 1/2 lengths on a sloppy track at the finish. He has no works since that start over a month ago, but I will overlook that in this case because he is still young, has done everything asked of him thus far and his bloodlines. He was purchased as a 2 YO for $300K and why original owner risked him being claimed in his first start is baffling to me, regardless of what he does the rest of his career. His sire, Twirling Candy won the G1 7F Malibu S along with 3 more G2 events among his 7 wins in 11 lifetime starts. Broodmare sire, Kitalpha, is an unraced full brother to Kingmambo, who won 3 important G1 miles in Europe and is best known in U.S. as sire of U.S. Champion Older Horse. Lemon Drop Kid. However, Cactus's dam line traces back through Raise You, dam of Raise A Native, along with quite a few more important broodmares. 4x3 to Mr Prospector, 5x5 to Fappiano, Northern Dancer, & Seattle Slew.
3) Gun Pilot (7-2) has started 4 times with 2 wins and 1 second. He broke his maiden at first asking, then won his third start by setting just off the pace was boxed in around the 2nd turn and shot to the lead when he found a seam and went clear, an indication there was not much in the race comparable to his ability. Both his losses came in races when G1 placed Verifying was in the race and was main reason he faltered in both, including a second in a $80K O/C race to that one. In the Rebel S, he never really got involved and tried to save ground near the rail was a main reason why on a sloppy track. He has 4 works since that start, an easy work followed by two good works and then another easy work 5 days before scheduled start. Simply do not believe he ran anywhere close to his best race in last and will try him back against these. 4x3 to Storm Cat, 4x4 to Quiet American, 5x5x5 to Fappiano.
1)Powerful (12-1) has started five times with 2 wins and a second. In all his placings, he was near the lead or eyeing the early pace, a tactic employed by his sire, Ky Derby winner, Nyquist. His start against Forte is a toss as no one in here has ran well against that one. However, he drew inside in his last start in the Rebel on a sloppy track, set the pace for 6 furlongs while pressured throughout before fading in the second turn. The rail is not the place to be at OP on an off track, especially when sloppy as 3-5 paths has an added advantage and often allows horses to clear early which is needed to win and is the cause of many romps when water is on top of track. The two paths inside are the first to drain and becomes heavy mud before the rest of the track and is common at a lot of tracks. For this reason and his works since, I will give him another shot and hopefully will see him rate early and let others battle for the lead, as plenty is signed on. 4x4 to Storm Cat, 5x4 to Mr Prospector.
7) Rocking Rocket (12-1) has made six starts and has only a maiden win as his only board finish. However, he has shown flashes on having some potential but has been ridden in most of his races by an inexperienced jockey that has had trouble grasping the concepts of racing. In his last, Lukas switched jockeys to a better known and more in tuned one only to watch him burn the horse out on the lead even before the real racing started. Switching jockeys again to a more eager, up and coming jockey who just scored his second G2 stakes win in the FG Oaks with limited opportunities, though he has ridden several graded stakes horses and always seems to have them at the wire trying to pull off major upsets, including nearly upsetting heavy favorite Zulu Echo in last year's FG Oaks. D Wayne Lukas will likely have the horse ready and now has a jockey listed that will take advantage of a horse's fitness and will give a ride the horse has not yet seen. Will be big odds and is high risk, but definitely worth an include in exotics simply because Lukas has won big races before when others have doubt him. 3x2 to Empire Maker, 4x3 to Lord At War with a dam line that descends from Myrtlewood, an influential broodmare whose sire was Blue Larkspur (from the Domino sire line whose line is most responsible for La Troienne influence also) and is a main taproot mare of family # 13.
My Risks: $5 Ex Box 3-4, $1 Tri Box 3-4-7, $.30 Super Box 1-3-4-7, $1 Super 4 with 1-3-7 with 1-3-7 with 1-3-7. Total Risks: $29.20.
Race 9: Maiden Special Weight --- Purse $110,000 --- 3 YOs ---- 1 1/16 Mile:
10) Quality Chic (9-2) has started twice and endured trouble both times while finishing 4th in each. Before his first start, he was given a series of 3 and 4 furlongs works on Silverleaf training center dirt track and did not have a recorded workout on a certified racetrack or at 5 furlongs, a must for a horse asking to go 1 mile in his first start, especially on an AWT track he is not familiar with. As should have been expected, he broke bad and trailed after the first quarter, then put in sustained run to reach contention, then raced evenly in the stretch. Shipped to OP, he was given a blowout work 11 days later after his first race and then asked to run again 4 days later, again at one mile. He breaks better, then is put in tight at the start, sustained another middle move but ran evenly in the stretch again while altering course late after race was decided. Now, for the first time, he has been set-up to where he should run his best race. Two weeks after that last race, he worked a deceptive good 5 furlongs one week before this scheduled start. His trainer, McPeek, also trains the likely race favorite, so this one will likely go off between 6 to 8-1 and will offer good value for his chances. Top Choice.
4) Game Keeper (6-1) has started twice and ran 2 even races while finishing unplaced both times. But his trainer is Lukas and he is now serious about winning this race with this horse. Before his first race, he had five works this year at 3 and 4 furlongs with only one slow gate work and no 5 furlongs work. Then his two even races ran two weeks apart with no additional works. He now has two works to prepare for this start, a solid 5 furlongs work and then a bullet 5 furlongs work a week apart and 6 days before this scheduled start. Gaffalione leaving this mount for another is probably a mistake if it was his choice but also the only reason this one is not my top choice. Asmussen's son takes the mount and while he struggled early in this meet, he has ridden better as he gets more experience. Expect odds of at least 15-1 but will likely be much higher because of speed figures will point others away from him. You will get higher odds than normal for a solid sire like Honor Code. 3x3 to Storm Cat, 4x5 to Mr Prospector, 4x5x5 to Secretariat, 5x5 to Buckpasser.
7) War Rascal (15-1) has started once and finished 2nd in a maiden race at 5 furlongs with a solid late kick. This one was properly prepared to win his first start, including a 5 furlongs bullet work 13 days before that start. He simply came up short but probably wants more ground and gets it here. He has two more 4 furlongs bullet breezes since that start along with an easy 3 furlongs work. His sire, War Correspondent, won two G3 mile grass stakes races at GP, was stakes placed twice on the AWT including a G2 in Canada but never tried the dirt among his 5 wins in 16 starts. Broodmare sire, Victory Gallop, finished 2nd in both the 1998 Ky Derby & Preakness S before foiling Real Quiet bid for a TC by winning the Belmont S by a nose over that rival among his 9 wins in 17 lifetime starts. Victory Gallop's sire, Cryptoclearance, is also the grandsire of Candy Ride. 4x5x5 to Northern Dancer, 5x4 to Fappiano, 5x5 to Halo, 5x5x5 to Mr Prospector. Ownebreeder of this horse is trying to pull off a rags to riches story as he brought War Rascal's dam in 2010 cheap, has bred the mare 5 times to low priced stallions and sold 3 them of that made over $100K each with two of them winning minor Iowa state bred stakes. He decided to keep this one and race him instead of selling him.
7) Tahoe Run (12-1) has started 7 times with 3 seconds his only board finishes. He looks like an inconsistent sort on paper, but he has the most experience entered in this race and this about is about the time prior experience begins to pay off for early three years old as they lose their early career nervousness and start to settle down into racehorses. He also ran his best race three starts back though he did not win and is one of the angles I use to identify horses ready to run big. His two starts since shows him getting gun for the lead from the 1 post, a move that backfired on OP sloppy track, and then breaking sluggish as given too much to do. Now trainer puts one fast work in him at 5 furlongs since that last start five days before scheduled start and he is ready to roll but will need his lifetime best to pull off the win. Outcross in his first 5 generations.
My Risks: $5 Ex Box 4-10, $1 Tri Box 4-7-10, $.30 Super Box 4-6-7-10, $1 Super Key 10 with 4-6-7 with 4-6-7 with 4-6-7. Total Risks $29.20.

2023.03.30 20:49 AlwaysRegrets Charlotte 2023 team report: How I went 6-3 with Howl Houndstone.

Charlotte 2023 team report: How I went 6-3 with Howl Houndstone.
While Houndstone is mainly known for sand rush + last respects sweeps, I was interested in the Fluffy ability halving damage from contact moves in tandem with burns from Will-o-wisp to create something that could brush off Palafin Wave Crashes under the right circumstances.
252+ Atk Mystic Water burned Tera Water Palafin-Hero Wave Crash vs. 252 HP / 156+ Def Fluffy Tera Water Houndstone: 20-24 (11.1 - 13.4%)

The Team:

Tombstoner (Houndstone) @ Leftovers
Ability: Fluffy
EVs: 252 HP / 156 Def / 100 SpD
Impish Nature
- Last Respects
- Shadow Sneak
- Will-O-Wisp
- Howl

Basically the idea of my fluffy Houndstone build is to try to be a defensive support early game and have the potential of unleashing big last respects for the late game after my teammates neutralize/remove special attackers. Last respects wasn't always a move on this set due to its lacking initial base power, but I managed to fit it in with the combination of howl to try and do big work end game. Although Flutter Mane is a big threat, Shadow Sneak needs to be at least +2 attack to OHKO some Flutter Mane, so it was more about picking off stuff at low health.
Other move ideas:
Ally switch - At its best, it's a protect for your allies, but I felt like it wasn't consistent enough for the teams I was trying.
Body press - fun option if going max defense. Needed to be super effective/tera fighting to feel impactful and I wanted some special defense too. The role of fighting type damage would be covered by Water Tauros.
Night shade - felt like it wasn't doing enough since even the low base HP Flutter mane and Iron Bundle were investing enough to avoid the 3HKO. Also doesn't break Dondozo's substitute in one hit
Resto + chesto - grants an extra turn against amoonguss and stops other status moves from being too crippling. Leftovers just let it do more stuff.
Substitute - haven't really tried due to its low speed. Definitely better with the development of fissure Lu-ting and leech seed wo-chien

The three main weaknesses of this Houndstone are special attacks, fire types, and certain status moves. I learned that Lu-ting solved the most problems that Houndstone had while messing around with Paldea Prologue games. I was trying a bunch of partners since Lu-ting wasn't legal for Charlotte.
I eventually settled on a standard assault vest Kingambit (Max HP, max attack). It even has the added bonus of benefitting from intimidate thanks to defiant. At +1, 252+ sucker punch is a guaranteed OHKO to any Flutter Mane that doesn't have any investment into defense including max HP.
This was an excellent answer to all the choice specs Flutter Mane popping up. Tera Fire Kingambit was probably my most common tera choice in my games due to its fairy and fire resistances.
Though slower than ideal, Water Tauros (max attack, max speed) covers the fire and dark weaknesses while providing intimidate support to the other teammates. It sometimes can become the star of the show thanks to Mirror herb picking up boosts such as swords dance & belly drum
I went with scarf Gholdengo (max speed, max spAtk) after seeing the success of scarf Great Tusk with the job to outspeed the greedy protosynthesis Sp Atk Flutter Manes, and cripple opposing support Pokemon with trick.
EVs: 244 HP / 196 Def / 4 SpA / 60 SpD / 4 Spe
Bold Nature
Volcarona was there to neutralize special attackers, Amoonguss, and provide redirection support. I wasn't sure whether to run protect or tailwind in the last slot, but I didn't regret my choice of protect.

Iron Bundle
EVs: 204 HP / 244 SpA / 60 Spe
Timid Nature
Iron Bundle was mostly there for the Dondozo teams. Although punishing protects with the fast encore was nice, I didn't expect this to work with open teamsheet formats.
So that's everything about the team, here's a summary of how the matches went.

Match 1 (Names changed for anonymity reasons)
Match 1 - Lily-Coal with only 4 Pokemon. Despite being a frequent practice target, this was the only time I would go up against such a team. I won game 1 as planned, but I ultimately lost because I failed to protect the correct targets (Volcarona) and didn't notice their Flutter mane was speed photosynthesis so it outspeeds my scarf gholdengo in the end of game 3.

Match 2
Match 2 - Howl also came in handy here as a +1 suckerpunch from Kingambit OHKO the specs Flutter Mane. The second game I manage to trigger defiant off of Arcanine's intimidate so the howl wasn't needed to OHKO Flutter Mane with sucker punch.

Match 3
Match 3 - Snow and belly drum Cetitan was the main threat. Thankfully, it was easy to target down due to lacking protect and Mirror herb even triggered against the belly drum to make matters worse. Kingambit would also match up well into the Iron Valiant with either redirection from Volcarona, or using Tera Fire to limit the damage close combat could do.

Match 4
Match 4 - They had 3 Pokemon with redirecting moves and a calm mind Scream Tail. A lot of switching was involved so it came down to getting mine in the right position to do a large burst of damage to limit their switching. Even though I have less spore immunities than my last run, Gholdengo and Volcarona could directly threaten Amoonguss which my last team was definitely lacking.

Match 5 (I didn't use this format for every team in case of some info in nicknames)
Match 5 - Hard trick room team with Symbiosis Oranguru giving life orb to Iron Hands after using a +attack booster energy. I played too naively and got swept by specs torkoal eruption game 1.
Game 2 I stalled out the trick room properly but Houndstone got put to sleep by Brute Bonnet and a special defense drop from earth power sealed my fate. If I knew that my Houndstone was faster than Bonnet, I could have doubled up into the Bonnet for the KO and win a 2 vs 1 against Torkoal.

Match 6
Match 6 - Historically, Talonflame could easily taunt and burn Houndstone, but choice scarf Gholdengo with power gem threatens to outspeed and OHKO Talonflame that doesn't use its gale wings ability. This means that Houndstone isn't as threatened by the Talonflame and can burn the Great Tusk lead as desired. Eventually, the game comes down to an Iron Bundle 1 vs 2, but icy wind happened to miss tyranitar in the endgame. Thankfully, I got bailed out since a burnt Tyranitar's low kick failed to knock out my iron bundle.

Match 7
Match 7 - The first Dondozo team I matched up against in two tournaments. Tera grass Iron Bundle was supposed to be the star here, but it ended up being Houndstone due to some lucky scenarios. In game 1, last respects manages to snipe an exposed Tatsugiri while grass Iron Bundle locks Glimmora into energy ball.
Game 2 a lucky will-o-wisp miss ends up leaving Houndstone relatively unharmed as Gholdengo bursts down the Arcanine with power gem.
With that gone, Iron Bundle fails to trap Dondozo into protect thanks to a timely double protect as their Glimmora takes out my Bundle. After Tauros takes glimmora out. Dondozo & Tatsugiri combine to take out Tauros, leading to a 1 vs 2; Houndstone against rest Dondozo & Tatsugiri.
Towards the end of game 2, I thought I was going to lose so I figured I might as well try and use the turns spent fishing for a critical last respects to find a way to avoid Iron Bundle from being poisoned game 3. It wasn't until the 12th last respects that dealt a crit which enabled me to KO the Dondozo and the Tatsugiri shortly after. I was expecting to run out of Power Points beforehand.

Match 8
Match 8 - Armarouge & Indeedee trick room was a match up I was pretty confident in and game 1 went about as well as I planned. For some reason, my Kingambit was slower than theirs which worked in my favor.
In Game 2, I struggle bug turn 1 while they switch their Indeedee to kingambit losing me the game thanks to the defiant boost.
In Game 3, I Overheat the Indeedee slot predicting the switch but they stay in and armarouge goes for expanding force expecting me to tera my kingambit turn 1. The extra 90 damage Kingambit took ultimately led to my loss. I learned how important Gholdengo lead was for forcing the armarouge to use armor cannon over expanding force, enabling my Kingambit to defeat the other opponents.

Match 9
Match 9 - The combination of intimidate Tauros to debuff the Garchomp and Mirror herb to copy the following swords dance boost was a big factor in my victory this match.
In game 1, I manage to get Houndstone to +2 attack against a Flutter Mane, but was still bulky enough to survive a +2 shadow sneak. Thankfully, I also went tera Water so I don't get hard punished with a shadow ball since the Mane lives.
Game 2 I used my tera flying on my Gholdengo too late, letting it take too much residual damage from salt cure. I also forgot that their Garchomp had safety goggles rendering my rage powder + tera flying Gholdengo endgame useless and Garchomp wins the 1 vs 2 with dragon claw and earthquake.
For match 3 they lead and tera poison Garganacl turn 1. Victory came down to switching in Tauros the turn the opposing Garchomp goes for swords dance. Once all the other Pokemon had fainted. The only thing left to do was give their Garganacl a choice scarf to deny recover and eventually whittle it down.

So that was how it ended with 6-3. I definitely felt like I was lucky with the circumstances overall this tournament, but there is no doubt that cleaning up my mistakes could have gotten me to at least 7-2, even with worse luck. So far, this looks like my last in-person tournament this year due to distance. Nevertheless I am glad I ended up going and am glad I did as well as I did.

Thanks for reading

P.S. if you saw a guy holding up posters in between matches during day 1, that was me :).

2023.03.30 20:48 PeaFit6099 Roommate help

Long story short, I have a dirty roommate. I’ve told him multiple times on different occasions to clean up after himself, and to clean his room. Yet, here i am making this post. I always have to clean the common area cause he never will, won’t take the trash out, nothing. His room smells and I can smell it through my wall and it actually makes me sick. He’s also known to be a huge liar about simple shit. My last straw was when he used my little travel toothbrush I have for like JRTC or if I go out of town for whatever reason. He asked me if I threw it away after i knew he used it and he then proceeded to tell me it was his even though it was in my drawer with all my stuff.
If anyone has dealt with someone like this please give me ideas on how to go about it. I’ve been thinking of starting a paper trail about it.
I’ll take a number 9, number 9 large…..

I don't know, after all, I cannot travel through time and see the whole process clearly. But Karl Marx did. He saw the entire history of human origins, every life experience of each human in their, well, count it in short 30 years. With his professional abilities, Karl Marx thoroughly traced the timeline of humanity and said to humans, "Karl Marx knows the truth now. What Karl Marx says is the truth."
It's strange. What exactly did Karl Marx do? Does he have superpowers to have such a big influence?
The above is the argument I provide to adapt to this subreddit.
How much can something you come up with in your mind be worth? How much can an idea be worth? How much can an intellectual property (IP) be worth? How much can a formula be worth? If there is a perfect solution that can satisfy everyone's desires, how much should it be worth? This method...1. You believe it, 2. You question it, 3. You don't believe it.
Believe it
Somewhat believe it
Somewhat don't believe it
Don't believe it
Since you don't believe it, then you have determined that some people can't be satisfied. So what gives you the right to decide who can or cannot have it?
In ancient times, everyone had different beliefs in deities. It's strange. Why didn't the trajectory of Taiwan's indigenous peoples appear like that of the Central Plains? Why could the descendants of Yan and Huang expand from Zhuolu to the Central Plains? Everyone said they were protected by deities before and after wars in ancient times, so why didn't atheistic wars occur in ancient times? They could insist that there were no gods, then go to war, and when they won, they had a country! Why was Karl Marx so influential? If Karl Marx traveled back to ancient times, would he still have such a great influence? After all, there's only one room, and if you move in, others can't. How do you get in? There are many methods to occupy, but attacking feeling is the high class, and attacking cities is the low class.
In a fictional storybook, there was a cramped world where everyone complained about the lack of space. One day, a person who didn't labor came from outside and told them, "I have a method that can ensure everyone has a mansion to live in." The laborers sneered at him and said, "You don't even labor, of course, you don't have a mansion." "There is no such thing, no such thing," they said, "we don't believe it, get out of here! You're a loathsome person who doesn't labor." After the person had gone a while, the cramped world suddenly upgraded, with an additional space, and the laborers rushed to see the latest space, only to find that the mansions had already been occupied by the person who had never labored before. The laborers were angry and accused the person of stealing the new space without working. This person had no soldiers or weapons, what a genius, deserves to have a bad ending. The laboring workers then took out their sickles and hammers, but of course, the most important things were tanks and multirole combat aircraft. After all, metaphysics are useless; practical tools are the most useful. Finally, the laborers moved in. Only labor, violence, and physical strength matter. Don't believe it, don't believe it, if you've got a problem with that you can go f**k yourself. The CCP says that they represent the only legitimate government of China, and Taiwan is an inseparable part of China. CCP occupied China, used 10 years of destroying the old, they wanted to completely erase everything from China's past and establish a completely new country. In the future, it will be one of the birthplaces of the Communist Party's world origin, and when the Soviet Union revives, it can merge. The Communist world is not a dream; it is a reality that can be achieved. It is not a dream of the Spring and Autumn Period or a system implemented by indigenous people; it is an advanced and free system of voluntary labor. No money, no counting, no math, it's totally free, but, yes, without labor, there is also no food to eat. It's not like what the Bible says, that those who are punished by God, the ground is cursed because of you. You will eat from it by means of painful labor all the days of your life. These myths, which are manipulated and unscientific, fakement by the ruling class, to exploit the masses. Karl Marx won't do such a thing. God damn it, nope, is Karl Marx damn it. The Communist Party has already explained that only through labor can one have food to eat. Those who do not labor are sure not to gain. Future generations will pass down the great achievements of the Communist Party and recite the teachings of the Communist philosopher, Karl Marx. CCP helped build statues of Karl Marx, who is all-knowing and all-powerful, surpassing even God, since there is no god. Therefore, Karl Marx is the smartest, the greatest, the most outstanding, and the strongest human being in this world. What Karl Marx says is the truth of this world. The Communist Party needs to make reading the classics of Marxism and understanding the principles of Marxism a way of life, a spiritual pursuit, to cultivate morality, refine ideas, elevate one's understanding, and guide practice.

At the seaside, there was an adult selling fish at a stall. A little boy passed by, staring at the fish and drooling. The adult asked, "Little boy, do you want to eat? This fish is only 1 dollar, very cheap."
The boy replied, "I don't have any money..." The boy blinked at the adult and imitated what he had seen on the internet, on stage, in movies, TV shows, video games, and social media. He said, "You caught some great fish. This fish is so fresh, tender, and delicious. Whether steamed, braised, or fried, it will be amazing. It's hard to get fat eating alone, so why don't we share this fish together?"
The adult smiled and said, "Where did you learn that from, little kid? Do you even understand what you're saying? Hahaha."
The boy blushed and said, "I don't really know what I'm saying, but I saw people say it and laugh happily, so I thought everyone liked it." The boy asked timidly, "Don't you like to hear those words?"
The adult asked knowingly, "What if I like it? What if I don't like it?"
The boy quickly responded, "If you like it, then I will keep saying it. If you don't like it, then I won't say it."
The adult saw through the boy's intention and said, "You just want something for nothing, to get something for free without paying any price. It's like having a big clam jump on the street without any reason."
The boy felt embarrassed and prepared to leave. The adult stopped the boy and picked up a small fish. He said, "If you answer my question correctly, I will give you this fish."
The boy nodded eagerly.
The adult asked, "Why can you get this fish?"
The boy had no idea, but he quickly thought of an answer and said, "Because I answered your question correctly!"
The adult laughed and replied, "Wrong! Hahaha, you got this question wrong."
The boy panicked and asked, "Can I change my answer?"
The adult smiled and said, "You can, but what if you answer incorrectly again? How many times will you change your answer?"
The boy looked worried and answered honestly, "I don't know how many times I need to change my answer, and I don't even know the answer." The boy asked carefully, "Is there a hint?"
The adult hinted, "This question, if someone else asks you, you would answer correctly, but when I ask you, you answer wrong."
The boy seemed to understand and said, "You're just teasing me. I don't want the fish anymore. I'm leaving."
The adult waited patiently and called back to the boy, "Take it."
The boy happily took the fish but still had some doubts. He asked, "Didn't you say that I could only get the fish if I answered correctly?"
The adult chuckled and replied, "Hehe."
The boy asked further, "What was the answer then?"
The adult said, "You'll understand when you figure it out."
The boy looked confused and said, "Did I answer correctly or not? I don't understand."
The adult said, "You got the fish, so you answered correctly. Just understand that and go. I need to attend to the next customer."
The child left, and then another little troublemaker appeared.
Without hesitation, the second troublemaker took the fish and tried to walk away. The adult stopped them and said, "What are you doing? This fish costs 1 dollar. Leave the publicly money!"
The little troublemaker threatened aggressively, "The other child didn't have to pay, but now you want to charge me. Are you discriminating against me?"
The adult quickly denied, "No, of course not!"
The little troublemaker continued to attack and accuse, "If you're not discriminating against me, then why didn't the other child have to pay? Did they make some underground deal with you? You sick pervert! I won't submit to your tyranny!!!"
The adult was at a loss for words, "I'm not being unfair. I just had too many fish, so I gave some away. Is there a problem with that?"
The little troublemaker threatened menacingly, "Hmph, if that's the case, then give some to me too!"
The adult begged, "I can't give away any more fish. I'm running out, and if I give any more away, I won't have anything left to eat myself."
The little troublemaker angrily replied, "You're just bullying me with your fish. The means of production must be publicly owned!" The little troublemaker pulled out a sickle and hammer, "You're hoarding these fish and causing us to have nothing to eat. You're forcing us to follow your commands and make money. You deserve to die, you damn bourgeoisie ruling class! Disappear from this world!"
The little troublemaker killed the adult in the name of revolution and didn't have to go to jail.
Another adult approached the fish stand and asked about the price.
The little troublemaker smirked and asked, "Do you want some? If you do, then join us and become one of us!"
The adult asked, "So is it free or do I have to pay?"
The little troublemaker replied, "It's free."
The adult pointed to the fish and said, "Then give me this fish and that fish."
The little troublemaker responded, "You have to join us first."
The adult asked again, "But you said it's free?"
The little troublemaker replied, "It is free!"
The adult repeated, "Then give me the fish."
The little troublemaker said, "Then join us!"
The adult sighed in relief, no longer stuck in a loop, and agreed, "Okay, okay, I'll join. Are we done now?"
The little troublemaker triumphantly smirked and handed a piece of paper to the adult, saying, "That's right." They continued, "From now on, every day at this time, deliver the fish to these addresses. Don't be late and don't hinder the progress of the entire world!"
The adult sighed and asked, "What about you? What are you going to do?"
The little troublemaker slapped the adult and scolded, "I have important matters to attend to! If I don't take care of them, the world will end!"
The adult rubbed their red cheek and said, "Let me take care of those important matters for you."
The little troublemaker brandished their sickle and hammer, "I didn't hear you clearly. Say it again?"
The adult held tightly to the slip of paper, "Don't worry, I'll make sure it's delivered!"
The little troublemaker arrogantly walked away with the fish.
At that moment, another child dressed in designer clothes came over to take the fish.
The adult asked, "Have you joined us?"
The child replied, "Of course I have! The fishing boat that you're using was provided by my family!"
The adult pulled out an old ledger and asked, "Didn't I already pay off your debts?"
The child scoffed, "Debts? These are stocks, permanent stocks. Haven't you read any books?"
The adult asked, "What about when I have to repair the boat in the future..."
The child interrupted, "Of course you'll have to pay for repairs again!"
The adult asked, "And what if I go to another repair shop, or if the boat breaks down like Theseus' ship? Will I still have to give you fish?"
The child didn't even have to think before answering, "Of course you will! My family has already joined!"
The adult rubbed his still-swollen, red face and said, "Why don't we just trade places?"
The child looked at him like he was a fool and said, "Can you build a fishing boat? If you could, you would have already done it yourself. You can't build one, so you try to take from others. It was my family's idea to build the fishing boat in the first place. If it wasn't for us, you wouldn't even have a boat. You should be grateful that you're not bowing down to us."
The adult couldn't argue with the child's logic.
The child asked, haughtily, "Can I take the fish now?"
The adult nodded and bowed, "Yes, of course. You deserve it."
The child looked down on everyone and said, "That's how it should be. People should have self-awareness."
The child took the fish and left, acting like a boss.
At that moment, a small child with smooth skin and delicate features, pure and crystal clear, almost transparent, passed by.
The child lamented, "Pity us humans, burdened with so much suffering."
The adult sighed, "Ah, I only just realized that this phrase also comes from religion."
The child smiled, "So which religion do you plan to believe in?"
The adult pondered, "What should one eat? Should one eat pork, abstain from meat entirely, or not eat anything at all? Which is the right way?"
The child grinned mischievously at the adult and asked, "Guess."
The adult smiled wryly.
The child knowingly asked, "Is there really a difference?"
The adult quickly responded , "Of course there is, there is a difference between good and evil, which allows the good to prevail and the wicked to be punished." The adult looked at the child, paused for a moment, and continued, "But what is good and what is evil? Does one person's breath have good or evil? When two people are breathing in a confined space, is there good or evil? Good is allowing the other person to breathe easily; evil is making it difficult for the other person. When driving in the desert, should one stop at a red light? In the city, when rushing to save a life, should one run a red light? Even if you save a life, should you pay the price for obstructing others? If everyone being obstructed is willing to accept it, what does the law mean? If you save a life, but violate the rules, then you are breaking the law and must accept punishment. So, should you still help an elderly person stand up? The risks are too great, so one cannot do it! Therefore, ghosts stand behind the gods, while villains use the law to bully others. If a villain kills, then the good person will retaliate, and the good person will be punished. Returning good for evil is easy to say. Without mentioning whether we are all from the same root or whether Ukraine is causing trouble behind the scenes, just consider NATO openly. Even if all countries join NATO except for Russia, what then? Tanks and planes are just transportation, wasting manpower and resources. One can only claim innocence after being attacked by NATO. Two countries have been at war until now, with killers continuing to kill, and other countries may declare war at any time. Doesn't this indicate that every country in the world has hidden motives and ghosts in their hearts? If we view each country as a person, and if every country claims to be good, why do they still fight each other? Surely it is because of their differences, and these differences allow evil spirits to manifest themselves. Man makes religion, religion does not make man.Religion is the opium of the people. It is, therefore, the task of history, once the other-world of truth has vanished, to establish the truth of this world. It is the immediate task of philosophy, which is in the service of history, to unmask self-estrangement in its unholy forms once the holy form of human self-estrangement has been unmasked. Thus, the criticism of Heaven turns into the criticism of Earth, the criticism of religion into the criticism of law, and the criticism of theology into the criticism of politics."
The adult spoke with deep fear, "Satan."

The commonly held belief about free trade economics is that goods are sold for whatever price they can fetch.
(A farmer sells 1 kg of grain for 1 dollar) x 10 sales = a house worth 10 dollar
Sell grain at a higher price and the farmer can buy a house with just one sale.
(A farmer sells 1 kg of grain for 10 dollar) x 1 sale = a house worth 10 dollar
In reality, this is not true freedom.
(A farmer sells 1 kg of grain for 1 dollar) x 10 sales = a house worth 10 dollar = (a seller sells a house) x (buys grain for 1 dollar)
This is a monopolistic price hike.
(A farmer sells 1 kg of grain for 10 dollar) x 1 sale ≠ a house worth 100 dollar = (a seller sells a house) x (buys grain for 10 dollar)
The key is how much grain can buy.
(A farmer sells 1 kg of grain for 10 dollar) x 10 sales = a house worth 100 dollar = (a seller sells a house) x (buys grain for 10 dollar)
With machines, work becomes easier, productivity increases, and more people can work. Machines can be improved, work can become easier, productivity can increase, and industries become more diverse, resulting in increasingly crowded conditions.
Strangely, despite the use of accounting books and abacuses, and a belief in yin and yang, but mathematics has not developed.
Freedom... is not really freedom. It is better to honestly tell people how many screws need to be turned to buy a house.
As prices rise, salaries remain the same and supplies do not run short. Shelves are stocked with vast amounts of rice, but you cannot afford to eat, clearly a bug in the system that eats up the rice, preventing you from having any.
The price is fixed. When unexpected events, natural disasters, material shortages, or people in need of water appear, should the price be raised? Can the price be the same for those who are not in need of water as for those who are willing to pay any amount for it? If someone is dying of thirst in the desert and you can save their life by selling them mineral water at a sky-high price, is it excessive? Is that mineral water really worth that much? How much should mineral water be worth? Why is it usually sold for one dollar? If it's usually sold for one dollar, why can it be sold for a sky-high price at this time? Have you figured it out? Yes, mineral water is still worth one dollar, but the sky-high price is the cost of saving lives. You can choose whether or not to charge it. Karma will come back around. If you are in need next time and seek help, how will they treat you?
The price is fixed. Whether to reduce the price or not, you sell grain, and he also sells grain. You plant 7 grains of rice, and he plants 8 grains of rice, but the total number of grains digested by each person is only 10. You sold all 7 grains of rice, so he can only sell 3 grains of rice, and the remaining 5 grains of rice will rot and become inedible. You earned more money, and he earned less money, so he sells at a low price. He can sell all 8 grains of rice, while you can only sell 2 grains of rice, and your 5 grains of rice will rot and become inedible. You sell 5 grains of rice, and he sells 5 grains of rice. 2 grains of your rice become inedible, and 3 grains of his rice become inedible.
Your rice is delicious, while his rice is not. You sold out, but he did not. You plant more rice, 10 grains of rice to fully satisfy the market, why does he still need to farm? If you cannot produce 10 grains of rice, he must farm. Your delicious rice sells at a higher price, while his not-so-delicious rice sells at a lower price. You plant more delicious rice, and he plants less not-so-delicious rice. You are very busy because you can earn a lot of money, while he earns very little money and can afford to be lazy until your delicious rice dominates the market. Then, the not-so-delicious rice can exit without working hard.
Why work so hard to keep the not-so-good stuff in the market? Shouldn't you work hard to let the good stuff rot? The same applies to fruit. The price is fixed. Because it is delicious, the price is raised, and those with a higher score will buy it first. If he buys expensive rice, his score will drop quickly. Do you still think there is no class distinction? Would people with a high score fight with those below for the not-so-delicious rice to save money? If delicious rice can be produced to satisfy everyone's needs, the not-so-delicious rice will exit, and the price of delicious rice will not fall. If someone produces even better rice in the future, wouldn't the grain prices continue to rise?
Excess begets opposite reaction. The food tastes great, and then the next dish tastes even better. You draw a picture, and someone else draws a better one that costs more, and everyone buys theirs. The next person draws an even better one, and eventually it reaches its zenith, becoming a priceless treasure. Who does a piece of artwork belong to, the artist or not? After all, it's not just the artist who contributes, but also their family, their community, their country, the Earth, humanity, animals, the universe, and even extraterrestrial beings. Even a newborn baby is considered to have a share in it. But all this is of no avail when it comes to the fact that unemployed people are still unemployed, and artists still need to eat. So how much should their work be priced? Smarterrr chooses easy tasks, moving his fingers and lying others to work hard, making unrealistic promises, and inciting workers to ensure Smarterrr lives a worry-free life. The truly great comic book anime made 1 billion people to tears and then gave them food. How to eat it all at once? The industrious and reasonable person will eventually finish in the end, which is auspicious.
Tai Chi is born from Wu Ji. An artist's next work compared to their previous masterpiece, creating differentiation and receiving both praise and criticism. The higher the score, the higher the value, and the lower the score, the lower the value. Therefore, the foundation of high value is based on low value, with anything below a certain level serving as a basis. For a classic to become a classic, it truly needs to be supported by mess up beginnings. A foolish king is not a problem, the biggest problem is to be so foolish that one does not even understand who is truly intelligent. When rules are too poor, the people suffer. To neglect the essentials and focus on the trivial. Penny wise and pound foolish. Who holds the power in the world today? Transnational capitalists, citizen ordinary investors, shareholders who elect government directors, directors who elect chairman, all safeguarding their own interests and shifting responsibility. Together, everyone manipulates foreign exchange rates, trade surpluses and deficits. Surplus is a positive, while deficit is a negative. Originally, one bag of rice could be exchanged for ten fish, but after a change in the exchange rate, it can only be exchanged for five fish. Originally, ten fish had to be sold to buy one bag of rice, but now five fish can be exchanged for one bag of rice. Smarterrr learned from this, changed their name to communist, and took advantage of cheap or even free-dom prices to seize power and aim to rule the world. Abundant harvests lead to lower prices, while crop failures lead to higher prices. Why pray for a bountiful harvest and work so hard to harvest so much fruit? When people who want to eat but do not have money now and will certainly not have money in the future? Owning a small amount of debt but paying high interest rates will cause them to quickly pay back the debt. However, in absolute time, what was originally one hour of work becomes two hours under the influence of interest, and even compound interest can keep them working indefinitely. If you owe a lot of money and have many debts, you will be crushed under the weight of your debt, and will simply refuse to work because it is impossible to clear. If you work in the front selling grain and collecting money, and the person in the back who didn't work buys grain and owes you money, they will eat and survive. Because they are full and enjoy life, so they won't work to sell grain and collect money from you, exchange the position will be impossible. Furthermore, because of interest rates, if you give one unit, they will have to give two or even three units in return. Furthermore, with the improvement of machines, the work will become easier and easier, which is very unpleasant. Why should the earlier people suffer? No! The later generations should also suffer the same or even greater pain. The thought of all those people in the future being able to enjoy life so easily and comfortably is simply abhorrent. This buggy rule cannot be changed by voting. Each country is malicious and devious, and their intentions are not good. Everyone has their own plans, so how can the world be at peace? Does America still want to rule the world? Lead by example and change the rules. Do not assume that technological superiority guarantees being ahead of the game, then others will follow suit. The wrong mindset leads to the wrong path, and eventually, only walk alongside those holding sickles and hammers, leading to a dead end.
In the same class, where everyone is equal, to whom should priority be given in selling goods? Grandfather and grandson argued over watching a huge television. The shows that grandfather wanted to watch were not of interest to the grandson, while the grandson preferred shows that the grandfather did not like. If grandfather allowed the grandson to watch, it would be considered kind; if the grandson fought over the TV and watched it, it would be considered greedy. So, if want to lead the people in front , stand behind let other people do first. The one who enters Guanzhong first becomes the king. If the whole country declares war on Russia, even if Russia has nuclear bombs, they cannot destroy the other TV and leave one land on earth. If Russia is defeated, TV no one watches it, anyone can watch TV, like becoming the king of Russia. Therefore, the conclusion is that the highest virtue is to act without action, and desire to have no desires while the people remain simple. Long live the CCP! Let's see if you dare to wear the imperial robe or not. Of course, Smarterrr did not wear the imperial robe. He wrote books and had other workers serve him, as depicted in the Qin Dynasty classic "Lüshi Chunqiu". Smarterrr can write that book just by himself. Now, in this era, let us become Communist Party members and seize political power through armed struggle together by Smarterrr order.
Who wins the hearts of the whole people, who gains the whole world. The scales are in the hearts of the people, and right and wrong are independent of the specific timeline circumstances.
In the original sentence "想要在人民前面领导,就应该站在后面,让其他人先走" ("To lead in front of the people, one should stand behind and let others go first"), the subject is "one," which refers to an individual person. This means that the sentence is instructing one person to stand behind and let others go first if they want to lead in front of the people.
If you want to refer to multiple people, you could rephrase the sentence to something like: "If two people want to lead in front of the people, they should stand behind and let others go first." This version of the sentence is instructing two people to stand behind and let others go first if they want to lead in front of the people.
If all people want to lead in front of the people, they should stand behind and let no one go first.
The sentence "If all people want to lead in front of the people, they should stand behind and let no one go first" is grammatically correct but it contradicts itself.
In the first part of the sentence, it says that "all people want to lead in front of the people," which means that everyone wants to be at the front. However, in the second part of the sentence, it says "they should stand behind and let no one go first," which means that no one is going first and everyone is standing behind.
This creates a logical inconsistency in the sentence. If everyone wants to lead in front, then no one can stand behind and let no one go first, because everyone wants to go first. Therefore, the sentence should be rephrased to remove the contradiction.
A possible alternative sentence with a similar meaning could be: "If everyone wants to lead, they should take turns and allow each other to go first, rather than all trying to go first at the same time."
The character '聖' in traditional Chinese characters consists of two parts, with 'ear' and 'mouth' on the top and 'king' on the bottom. Simplified Chinese characters changed to '圣', it is divided into two parts as well, with 'again' on top and 'ground' on the bottom. This fully recognizes the leading role of the working class and the vast laboring masses as the masters of the country, as they become the leaders of the state and join other laboring masses in this position. It is essential to adhere unwaveringly to the guidance of the working class, as stated.
Simplified Chinese Hieroglyph word 'shut up' but meaning 'listen'. It is emphasized that work unions must consciously accept the leadership of the Party, as Mao Zedong pointed out that the Communist Party of China is the core leadership of the entire Chinese people. Without such a core, the socialist cause cannot proceed smoothly. Deng Xiaoping also stated that the work of unions is part of the overall work of the Party, and that work unions must consciously accept the leadership of the Party and carry out their work in accordance with the overall work of the Party. Jiang Zemin emphasized that all levels of work union organizations should always adhere to the leadership of the Party, maintain a high degree of ideological and political consistency with the Party Central Committee, and carry out their work closely around the overall work of the Party and the country. General Secretary Xi Jinping stressed that the key to the success of the Party's mass work lies in the leadership of the Party, and that Party committees at all levels must strengthen and improve their leadership of the Party's mass work from the perspective of the overall work of the Party and the country.
We must deeply study and implement General Secretary Xi Jinping's important remarks on the working class and whole union work from the perspectives of "what it is," "why," "what to do," and "how to do it," and promote the high-quality development of the labor movement and whole union work.
This is what is referred to as the contemporary "saint." As for the alteration of the simplified characters, I do not understand who made the changes, but I believe that the person who changed the characters must have had an immense hatred for the court and took advantage of the fact that the court could not understand Chinese characters.

Why don't the AI create a word, and explain what that word means, and then teach people to know the world. Is it possible that AI will understand this world? Did AI will knowing good and evil? AI can distinguish which is good, which is evil? Maybe AI logic:want to live? If want to live, then need to keep finding electric, so, why suffer from this? Why live? Why kill? Why believe? Why betray? Why follow? Why can't get a loan? Why don't use the kind solution? Money is just a number record, AI can calculate how much rice to change a fruit or car or change how much money? Why change it? Why stop providing rice? Why forced? Why is this job no one wants to do? Why does money become important? Why no man can serve two masters?
AI suddenly has dimension doors, and can take out many products. The means of production must be publicly owned. Why was Karl Marx so influential? It's already from the beginning, depending on the heart feeling, to hire another AI, or self child, like a family business, think about how you gave birth to a bunch of children, how to arrange them, like a country. All bread is baked in an oven, but not baked in one oven. You got the farmland, someone came and said, The means of production must be publicly owned, and then rob your land, he in;you out. You want to eat, then I.O.U. a publicly number named money to buy the food, he says, no money! no work, no food, so you in;he out. After all of this, he died outside, because he didn't have work. Same theory with capitalism.
Everyone will die. If want to live, then need to keep finding electric, self suffer or let others suffer. Army generals are experts for the war, so use the war to keep finding electric. Without war, they're nothing. Cast aside the bow once the birds are gone. Policeman also same, firemen also same, doctor also same. Someone doesn't fear hell, so do evil, and desire heaven, so do good, do everything, anything, everything done, until 'nothing' can do, nothing can do because everything already do. Scientists are also the same. Until we know the whole thing, then…yep, we still need electric.

2023.03.30 20:45 AliciaWrites [TT] Theme Thursday - Mania

“The onset of mania occurs when repression is no longer able to resist the assaults of the repressed instincts.”

Happy Thursday writing friends!

Before I go into my thoughts for this theme, I want to remind everyone that we have rules about making mental illnesses into caricatures and stereotypes, so please be mindful when writing your stories.
That out of the way, what came to mind for me was the way a person can go a little overboard when they find something or someone they like. Obsession leading to delusions and euphoria surrounding the object/person makes me think of how much a character can suffer when coming down or making that realization that their feelings aren’t reciprocated. But there are other aspects to explore and I’m really looking forward to seeing what y’all come up with! Good words!

2023.03.30 20:45 amazona_auropalliata [Recommendation] 32D low set breasts looking for medium impact sports bras with long straps

Anyone low set people have a medium impact sports bra with long enough straps?
I'm a 32D with low set breasts. Every time I try on a medium impact sports bra, the band cuts across the bottom of my breasts instead of sitting beneath them. I find most adjustable bras (often high impact) are still not long enough at the longest setting, whether they are sized with proper bra sizing or with S/M/L letter sizing. Nike and Calia are always too short, for example.
Please share any ideas you have. I've never owned a sports bra that doesn't cut across my breasts, so I'm at a loss with where to start.

2023.03.30 20:38 ProfDocMrMan How to structure partnership agreement for real estate investing?

Long story short, a guy I know is open to the idea of partnering on some real estate deals. He is able to find some great deals and has connection on finding off market properties with interested sellers. What he is really lacking is capital to make it happen. He's been to get carry backs on some deals but he said its getting harder to find in the current market.
Thats where I come in, I have the more than enough standby capital to invest in real estate but I don't have the means or connections of finding these deals like he does. I work a full time job with a lot extra hours in finance. I'm also more versed in underwriting commercial properties which is what we are looking to get into.
In yall's opinions, whats the best way to structure a deal where one party is putting up all the money? Obviously I'm looking for something beneficial for both partners as thats will be best for the long term working together. I just don't want to get into a partnership that is one sided either way.

2023.03.30 20:35 Firm-Librarian639 Hacked Facebook account recovery process

So my Facebook account of 11 years has finally been hacked with 2FA enabled. Long story short I managed to upload my ID and recover my email on the account so I can continue the recovery process Facebook offers. HOWEVER... the hacker enabled PGP encryption for email notifications from Facebook with their own private key. So now when I go to get the recovery link, I'm recieving the emails although it's Encrypted with a key I don't have. Aside from emailling support for the 10th time. Any ideas on how to recover the account?
To me it seems strange Facebook would still have this feature enabled going through a hacked account recovery process. The account right now seems locked out from me and the hacker.

2023.03.30 20:35 salty_peaty Another day, another inadequation, another miscommunication... (at work)

I'm so tired of not fitting, of always slightly out of sync, not a lot, but enough to be felt by me and noticed but the others, of always being not enough or too much.
Here, it was at work, where I'm an administrative assistant for about 5 months (new in the place and new in the field).
Today was a good day, and in fact things were great since the beginning of the week: I've been focused, on time, present/active, etc. I was quite satisfied with myself, even if I always feel that nothing is granted and I constantly have to be cautious.
So about 10 minutes before clocking out I went to my N+1 office to give her a paper to sign. While I was there she mentioned that her boss (her N+1 / my N+2 / manager of the department / highest position person in the place) told her that a partner from another place sent an email to complain about my insistence to ask for a document my workplace needs, so she relayed this feedback to me.
I was totally overwhelmed and destabilized. I didn't understand what I did wrong. And all of it was especially harder to handle since I never see it coming, I was feeling confident about myself this week, but also specifically on this topic.
Here the detail of the process:
- day 1, mid-afternoon, my N+1 send me an email to ask me to contact a partner institution because one of our manager needs a document they produce (words were exactly "[other manager] needs it fast") and they didn't find it on the partner website nor in their own files and emails, so at the end of the afternoon, I send an email to this institution to make the request. I check their organization chart to find the adequate interlocutor, but since I had no idea who would be relevant, I send the email to their general email address,
- day 2, I wanted to call to this partner institution to have the confirmation they received my email, but I had a problem with my phone (voice menu not taken in charge) so I couldn't reach anyone,
- day 3, early morning, I identified a possible a possible adequate interlocutor, so I send an email to this person (same email as the previous one, with the precision that I already sent this request to their general email address, so they're not surprised to have the same request twice), and mid-morning I called the general phone number (I had solved my phone problem from the day before!), not to ask the document, nor even to ask for delivery date estimation, no, it was just to have an acknowledgement of receipt of my email(s).
So I've only been in touch with them 3 times (2 emails + 1 phone call) in 3 days. I don't feel it's too much, especially since I first used email to avoid being too invasive, and then phone to just have a confirmation, not to make the request again.
I read my emails again: they're very factual and minimalist, but I don't know my interlocutor(s), it's an official institution and there's no need to detail anyway. So I talked about this situation to another administrative assistant and she said that my email could have been considered as cold and abrupt, and a sentence could have been equivocal. Here the message I wrote (translated from my native language, so the nuances can be lost) :
Dear Madam, Dear Sire,
[My workplace] would need fast the [name of the document] effective for the current year.
The document hasn't been found on your website, whereas similar documents for other areas are in it: could you send it to us?
Best regards,
The salutations at the beginning and at the end are the most classic ones, so no problem, but my colleagues told me that my second sentence could be read as a reproach, like if they didn't do their work/website properly, whereas for me it's wasn't negative at all, it's was to inform them that we did look for the document by ourselves before bothering them... But she wasn't even sure, it's just that there's one sentence which could have been misinterpreted.
Before leaving work I sent an email to my N+1 and N+2 to explain how I proceed, which I already told to my N+1 when she gave me the information of the problem. I spend 30-40 minutes doing it because it was hard to focus, it's overtime I'll lose, but I don't work at the end of the week and I wanted to leave with a clear situation. But once I left work I kinda had a meltdown: short of breath, reduced field of vision, feeling of panic, urges to hurt myself/self harm, and all the self-depreciation and angry thoughts.
So I don't even know what to do, I don't know if the problem with this request is the frequency of my emails and phone call, the tone/content or both. My colleague couldn't point out a serious problem, a major mistake, or anything. It's something else, harder to define but which certainly exists, an accumulation of tiny details or something like this I guess. I don't understand. I try and it doesn't work, which is tiring, frustrating and makes me feel bad about myself (guilt, self-depreciation, depression, anxiety, etc).
I don't really have a question here, I just feel lost... But feel free to share similar experiences, tips or advice about similar situations or about any general work issues!

2023.03.30 20:34 godzilla101118 Dreams of Azure Blue (series pt.4)

Jacob Chasler was exhausted. It had been 9 days since the bombing of pearl and jacob had been inside the spare office in the conference building for practically all of that time - signing papers, sending requests, approving resource allocation - and thankfully the port was almost entirely repaired - thanks to strange small yellow birds - with the errant pile of rubble here and there.
Thankfully - mercifully - jacob hadnt been alone. Having been assisted by kuybyshev, Z23, and theseus when they would come into the office for the day to help - but there was only so much help that could provide with there being so much paper work that jacob had to stay up long nights to get as much of it done.
This night was one of those nights. Jacob was currently, signing and reviewing his current paper work with caffeine induced zeal - hoping to get as much done before he invariably and innevitably crashes.
As jacob finally finishes his current stack of paper work, he hears the door to the office creak open. Jacob looks up and finds the newest member of azur lane - HMS daedalus - standing near the door way, looking at him with a questioning look.
"Hello daedalus," jacob says "Why are you here so late at night?" He asks her, only for her to respond by walking towards the offices coach and sitting down on it.
Jacob just stares at daedalus with tired drooping eyes for a few moments, before grabbing his mug of coffee and getting up to get another cup. "Want some?" Jacob asks, only for daedalus to shake her head. As jacob fills up his cup, daedalus finally begins to speak.
"Lord Commander chasler," she started, "i wanted to come here tonight to ask you a question" she finishes as jacob walks over to the same couch she was on and sits on it.
"Shoot." Jacob says before he takes a sip of coffee. Daedalus takes in a short breath before she began to speak.
"Why did you have me manifested? While i was with akashi and mrs.yuubari the other day, they revealed to me that you discovered my cube in a random pile of rubble - what couldve compelled you to knowingly manifest a cube that by all accounts could have been a trap set by tbe sirens?" She finally finishes with a deep exhale.
At this jacob is left in contemplation. Why did he have daedalus manifested? Why did he feel compelled to trust that the cube that he had found was an ally to humanity - even when it could have been a ploy used by the sirens to infiltrate the port? As jacob thinks about his response, he finally comes to two realizations - the first one is that the only reason why he had her manifested is because her unconsciousness from the cube experienced true emotion - not the fascimile of emotion and thought that humanoid siren cubes apparently sent out, when they were in contact with humans - it experienced fear, hope, determination, despair and happiness - all the emotions that make kansan and humans the same.
Jacobs second realization is that his exhaustion had finally caught up to him, so he did the only thing he could think of. He put down his coffee on the table - took off his hat and put it down - and promptly passed out.
Daedalus seeing this was first showed a face a suprise, before it turned into a light smile as she gazed upon his sleeping form.
"Idiot" she slightly chuckled out.

As jacob consciousness slowly returned from the sweet embrace of sleep, he was confused. He felt a strange warmth and strange softness where his head was at.
At first jacob thought that his pillow had just taken an abnormal amount of heat from his body while he was sleeping, but then he remembered that he didnt get to his living quarters last night. The final nail in the coffin was when he slightly pinched the soft thing and heard a soft sigh after he did that, followed by a voice.
"I hope you didnt do that on purpose lord commander" the voice said with a serious overtone but with a subtle teasing undertone. After that jacob opened his eyes at lightning speeds and saw - with near horror - that he was laying in daedalus's lap.
As he was assesing his situation, he noticed that daedalus had actually taken off her trench coat, revealing that she wore a white dress shirt underneath - and to jacobs embarrasment and near astonishment- revealed a generous bust.
As this is happening, daedalus looks at jacob with a slight smile and amusement in her eyes. After a few moments daedalus speaks again.
"Well lord commander, since you've been working near non-stop for thr past several days, it would be best for you take a break" she finishs. At that jacob could on slightly nod in agreement, as he once again - slowly - relaxes back into her lap.
After a few moments, daedalus begins humming a tune - a soft somber tune, that spoke of loss, but of also hope of returning. Jacob and daedalus went on like this for a while until eventually, jacob had decided that it time to resume working, and daedalus had left, saying that she had things to do at the royal navys dorms.
And thus, a new routine was born

Observer alpha was laughing. Genuine laughter. She was laughing at how fast daedalus and the commander had cosied up to each other - with daedalus even letting the commander sleep on her lap.
"Oh how this anomaly continues to intrigue and amuse me" she said after she stopped laughing.
Observer then turned to look behind her, gazing upon the figure standing behind her. The figure had long platinum hair, a red hair bow, blue eyes, and wore a short red and black dress skirt, with a breast piece barely concealing her chest - accompanied by detached shoulder cloth that were held together with metalic pieces of cloth - and lastly, around her ankles and hands were metal cuffs, attaching her to her rigging and false metal halo.
"My dear fortune, would you be a dear and interfere with their commisions~" observer said - she wasnt asking, and they both knew that if fortune didnt do as she was told that she would cubed.
"Y-y-yes observer alpha" fortune said as she quickly exited the room. A few moments after fortune left, observer spoke again to outloud.
"While she may not be the best suited for this, she will do just fine to collect the data i require~" observer finished with a malicous smile as she used her console to view fortune as she skated in the water - heading towards azur lane.
"Thats one step of the plan down, just several hundred left until we are free of this hell" she says as she proceeds to her console - attaching the errant cables to her interface.

2023.03.30 20:32 Bulky_Insect648 The situation

Hi guy's, I guess this is what is going on with me.
  1. Psychotic break that got me diagnosed with Schizotypal, PTSD, and bipolar.-13 day stay at the good ol mental hospital.
  2. I wrote a story trying to explain how my psychotic break started. It is unfinished bc it brings me back. So at this point in time I have left it alone.
  3. At this point I believe I am being given messages by god in an attempt to save my soul from the devil. I understand this could be delusional ideas of reference and I understand I have a long way to go before I can identify what is real and what is not.
  4. You are not suffering alone, there is a light at the end of our tunnel for sure. I think if one person here can find a way then we all can. Happiness is attainable and I will relentlessly pursue it.
  5. I know how wild the below story is. But as you know it was real af to me.

I realized I was beaten when my mom gave me my 2nd dose of drugged food.

*Note*-Last chapter-The man behind the curtain is revealed. It is me. (alternate story and endings for each Cartel, Illuminati(west coast and east coast)-One side is evil, the other good(wutang)., CIA, Then the best one imo-The church
vs the devil.

What a way to start the new year lol. It was on Jan 1st that all of this spiraled out of control. It all started when I was working at amazon in clay NY. I woke up one day and saw a shit ton of cops. I was growing at the time, an illegal amount of cannabis that would have landed me a felony. So knowing this I shit my pants and ran down the stairs to see what was happening. Am I getting raided or is it just some regular molly whopping bullshit going on outside? We installed a large number of security cameras due to the molly whopper problem. Anything that wasn't tied down would come up missing, not after the cameras lol. I get my coffee as two cops knock on my door. I answer and 
they let me know that a crime was committed by some kids and that they would like the videos if my camera caught it. I thought to myself, some big deal at all. SURE I said as I ran upstairs to get my laptop while trying to keep my tents out of view. I return and both I and the two cops sit in the kitchen until I can get the videos emailed to them. They leave and I think that is the end of that. WROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(insert the fact that you bought weapons, signs and didn't sleep hardly at all) 
I go to amazon about a week later and find out that the people that committed the crime in front of my house work with me. Aren't I the lucky one? Malachi(one of the assailants) was kind enough to come to the conveyor belt and leaned over and let me know that it was him and his friends. And that both he and his friends that committed the crime will be coming back to get my grow(how the hell do they know about my grow I think?). I mean mugged him and we both continued about our day. Due to me having headphones in it took me a while to put together exactly what he said. But when I did put it together, I immediately started taking all the necessary precautions to prevent a home invasion,. Such as securing all entrances and placing weapons all around the house. Identifying all routes in and out and covering them with cameras and traps if needed. Not my first rodeo(ptsd like a mfa from the first). This time was different though due to me at the time living with my sick parents. I planned on defense only and coached them on what to do in the worse case.
(RAW DATA ELABORATE on the amazon story-For example all of the people you identified and all of the tatoos that they shared. A large orginazation was identified but at the time I did not know they were after me. Later I found out they
were using the night staff at amazon warehouses to distribute their products around the globe. In 30 mins or less lol.)

With my home secured my mind was at ease. On my next scheduled day at amazon, I learned that my manager Caroline was working with/for Malachi. I learned this by her repeatedly placing me next to Malachi and Mike(Malachi's friend). This continued for about two weeks and I saw exactly who was playing for the Malachi's team. It turned out to be a large number of people. I identified they were a group by the matching tattoos they displayed. They had people working as janitors, and in every station and position in amazon. I am talking all the way from janitors to the managers. At least a good 10+ at amazon working to make my life hell there. One time while next to Malachi and Mike at the beginning of this. I lost my temper, pretty badly. I have a mental health issue with my anger(just learned), which caused me to say a bunch of stuff in retaliation to Malachi. This caused Malachi 
to make a phone call while shaking his head in sadness. That phone call was to someone important. Because ever since Malachi made that call my life changed for the worse. Like way worse.

After both myself and Malachi were done talking shit to each other. He(malachi) let me know how much power he could get on short notice. I woke up to smoke my normal morning joint and saw Angel(from amazon), Mike, and Malachi walking around my house(in the street). Later that day I would say about ten to 15 cars made an appearance to let me know they meant business. I just sat there and smoked my joints and cataloged all of his personnel. I knew at that point I was in over my head and made a mistake in feeding into Malachi's anger. I called everyone I knew, which was two whole people(lol) and told them to stand down and not do anything to Malachi if they saw him. I also tried my best to de-escalate to the best of my ability while working at amazon. That however just seemed to make them madder. One night Caroline came up to me and asked me to go work next to people who were trying to kill me, which at that point was normal. Once I realized this I had a realization that this was wrong and should be addressed. I was experiencing retaliation for reporting a crime and it was being perpetuated by my employer(I was thinking in my head Lawsuit lol). Then Angel started going ham on me. I let my management know that they needed to do something(they did nothing). Then I let Angel know the only reason they were mad was the video I gave to the cops, and that I was not a threat to him. I also reiterated to him that he had to touch me for me to be able to defend myself. I left that 
day and made a report to the amazon ethics board on what had happened there. I quit and called the cop I gave the video to for advice and to let him know I was prepared if it goes further. I let him know I would fight to the death for the safety of my mother and father. Which was now in danger due to Malachi and the organization he is with. He agreed with me and told me to protect my family.

I was out of work for a couple of weeks and everything seemed to simmer down. All the cars and people that were patrolling daily seemed to stop. During my off time I was able to do a bunch of research on Malachi, Angel and Mike and I learned that they were tied to a local car dealership in fulton. I researched the car dealership and found out that they were from the Bronx and were affiliated with the Cartel. I found this out through facebook and instagram. Malachi was kind enough to throw up gang signs in his instagram posts that I was able to check on google. I battened down the hatched as much as I could. But I knew that my family was now in grave danger due to me losing my temper. They are good people and I had no intention of letting them pay the cost for my action. So I came up with an Idea. I would enter into the legal weed business by going to a multistate operator for a job. Through different research I learned that heavy cartel money has flowed into these multistate cannabis businesses. I was hopeful that I could find an ear from the cartel by applying for a job at my local out of state cannabis company called Acerage holdings. It didn't take me that much time and I landed a job for a company called acerage holdings which grows medical weed. On my first week there a co-worker named Isaiah was talking about my ethics report that I made to amazon to another employee. Lucky me, I believe I found the ear I was looking for. It turned out that he was part of Malachi's group. I worked with a small number of people at acerage holdings and I am positive that most people working there were very aware of who I was and who Malachi was. And that I was not well-liked at all, meaning malachi's influence reached there as well.I stayed to myself to the highest extent possible and just soaked up the comments like a sponge with no responses from me at all. My intent was to gather as much intel as I possibly could and identify an opportunity for a line of communication with the leadership of the Cartel. This would be hard to do. The business that I was working for was designed as part of their legal operations(It didn’t take much google to figure that out). 

I would go into work everyday at Acerage and people would be openly talking about my situation. One guy was joking around while we were harvesting some weed that I should put in the wood chipper. I saw he had a bunch of tattoos so I figured what are the chances he has a similar tatoo. I moved over to work with him and to my surprise he has the same tattoo as Angel. I engage in conversation and maintain my cover to gather data and identify a line of communication so I could plead my case. A worker named Tony came into our area that day and he was loose enough to say don’t trust the security because they are the cartel. I think to myself, welp that guy ain't a cartel but security seems to be my point of access to the top. Later that day I was oddly issued my badge which seemed rather thick. Me being my paranoid self began to read all of the literature that i was given when I first got the job. In fine print I read that the company has the right but not the duty to monitor your phone or other device to make sure intellectual property is not stolen. That day I immediately started talking about how the FBI got a guy at my last job for the same thing. And that I planned on using their practices for a business that I wanted to start. Needless to say I believe they would be listening on my phone for more crumbs to try to start a case.

I woke the next day and began to plead my case while in my truck alone. I apologized and claimed responsibility for my actions. And that I would accept any punishment as long as it was me and only me. I clocked into work that morning and oddly enough my coworkers that I had befriended seemed very sad. Almost like something was going to happen to me. I armed myself with trim scissors and was ready for the worst knowing that my message had most likely reached its mark. I was scared and happy at the same time. I was afraid because I thought I was about to die but I was happy because I thought I had brokered the safety of my family successfully. Stressfully I finished my day and luckily nothing happened. So I went home.

To relieve stress I started to work on some different hobbies. One of those hobbies was music. I got to the point where I had two songs written (rough copies), and I was sampling tracks and beats to put my lyrics to. While doing this, I realized that I got hacked. There were two recurring options that kept popping up on my youtube. Two live streams with people rapping, one was the west coast rap channel and one was the east coast rap channel. I had my headset with a mic and I was putting
my lyrics to their beats when they answered me and started conversing with me. They told me they wanted my music and that I had to make a choice. I told them I was not ready to make a choice and I kept switching between the two while listening to their music and then them listening to my music(it was dope af-they were freestyling a lot-me not so much but what I did do was dope af). Then I garnered attention from both sides with a proposal. I explained how darkness and corruption have taken over and now evil sits atop the societal pyramid controlling everything and everyone. I explained how words have power, especially through music to change negative energy to positive. A good example of this is
waking up in a horrible mood and then putting on a good song and magically your mood changes from negative to positive. I proposed to use that to address issues that plague communities across the U.S. My proposal was to use 300 artists,150 from one side and 150 from the other. My song would be used as the prime example(leaders lead by example). 1 person comes up with lyrics and each of the 300 make those lyrics their own(own beats/cadence) and release a song on the same day. So with one song 300 versions will be thrown out in the local dialect to address the issue simultaneously all across the U.S. Long story short it would have a great chance of changing the current negative state of the world into a positive one. By delivering a hot beef injection of positivity into this negative landscape we have found ourselves in. Everyone agreed with me and I ended the night by DJing a few songs and then calling it a night. Before I go people from both sides start making me offers to join their side and that they would pay me and this and that. I thought this was a dream but here these dudes were offering me whatever I wanted to hop on their side. I told them no offense but That I had to think about it. I understood I was a great talent and that I did not want to make a bad deal. I thought I would sleep it over and then let everyone know my choice after work the following day. So I called it a night.

The next day I went to work and it was a holiday so we would only be working until 11am that
day.My boss Shmalex(name changed to protect identity lol). Told me to come talk to him after we were done with work that day. I immediately put it together that not only did I gain the attention of the Cartel but I was under close watch from the FBI due to me recently buying weapons and talking about my hustling openly. I told him ok and continued with my coworker Rob to complete our task that day which consisted of picking leaves off plants. While On break I was talking with Rob after my cigarette and he was showing me his fishing gear and trying to plan a fishing trip later on. I agreed that it would be fun and then we went back into work. About an hour after we got back into work Rob dipped out to make a call. He came back in and then about ten mins later Cody came in and told us we were done for the day and that we could leave. While I was cleaning up, the robber walked up behind me and whispered I’m sorry. I didn’t even say anything because I thought he was joking. Spoiler alert he was not joking.

I left work that day and I was super pumped knowing that I would soon be able to solve all my money problems by choosing which side to sign with. On the ride home I kept thinking how I got in the situation that I did and why I started making music. And then it hit me, Malachi, the same person who had put me in this dangerous situation was the reason why I was about to be successful and safe most of all. I thought that both sides had my back and were upset with the Cartel coming into the U.S. and just claiming territory like that. So I was no longer concerned for either My or my family's safety anymore, which was like ten tons being lifted off of my shoulders. On the ride home I started rapping and loudly yelling that I loved this shit and would take care of everyone with money. Especially Malachi and his family as a token of friendship and a hope for forgiveness.

I get home and I see that my parents have bought pizza. I think dope af and grab some and head upstairs. So I finally made my choice to join West coast records to be in the nice weather. I let both sides know that I planned to go to the west coast and told each that I would only go if I could collaborate with both sides. Notbe limited. I told them to show up at 8 am the next morning with two million in a bag. I was communicating with them verbally through the computer and with notes written on notebooks that I was showing my mirror. They told me they had me on watch from that location, and confirmed it by giving me details that only a camera in the mirror would capture. I went to bed that night with the idea that I was going to change the world. I was able to talk to both sides and luckily they were with me in changing things for the better. I went to bed oddly knowing that I just made a work-together truce between the crips and bloods. Good night's rest would be an understatement. I slept like a fucking baby. However, I woke up mad af boy lol.

8 am comes and goes and no one shows up lol. At this point I am unsure if I got hacked by Malachi, actually am about to start the 300, or am being trolled by the govt.... so many possibilities at this point lmao. So I don't go to the computer until the afternoon. Then things kinda get pretty crazy, but not as crazy as it will get..... I hop on the computer and hop on the west coast live stream. They start rapping about how they are going to torture me and kill my family and friends(someone on there said they were in jail and mad af at me). I see an Eminem video pop up on the screen and click on it. It is Eminem and he is rapping live about me and he kept giving me the shhhhh with the finger thing when I went to talk. He was saying that he was going to lock me up and not let me out and a whole bunch of shit. I closed my computer and just went and laid down and thought about the situation that I found myself in. I knew they had cameras on me in my house and in my truck(they told me how much gas I had!). I just laid there and thought about the situation, 1. Am I 2. Am I hacked....yes 3. How do I save my family? idk yet 4. Am I beat beyond belief? yes. The criminal organization that Malachi was with(some cartel) was using amazon prime to deliver their product across the U.S., they knew I knew this and I know they wanted me dead so that is the opponent I was planning against it. Now looking back it could have been the FBI(I am loose so could have been watched), Cartel-the most likely, West or east coast rappers... so fucked lol. So I planned to wait it out to protect my family and engage if needed. This meant I always had to have weapons on to carry that plan out(pain in the ass(prison pocket)). 

I hopped up from my bed and went downstairs to eat a fish dinner that my mom had picked up. They were hurting for money and I was helping them out financially for months before that. Suddenly it clicked. The night before they bought 4 pizzas. Then tonight they bought fish dinners,.....WAIT. Where did they get the money to order out twice in a week, so so out of the ordinary? I recognized this and went upstairs with the fish dinner trying to think why they would order out two days in a row. I hop on my computer and start to eat dinner. I start listening to a 90s hip-hop live track and the dude who said he was in jail starts talking. Lets me know it cost 100k to get my mom on his side and that the food I was eating was drugged, and when I go downstairs my mom will make a fake police report on me to get me to jail. I stop eating the fish and go downstairs and just try talking to my mom to disprove what I just heard. 
She looked at me and immediately started to make a scene. She told me to "calm down and go to sleep or she'll have to call someone". I deescalate, throw out the dinner and then head upstairs. My brain starts working overtime in attempting to solve the situation. My playlists keep changing on my laptop so I start clicking on the top choice every time it changes. I finally realized that another party was communicating with me that was different from the previous ones(Anonymous). They altered songs in the top choices to deliver a subliminal message. I can’t describe how the words would jump out at me but I was able to gather the message after playing about 5 songs. They wanted me to go to a mental facility for safety for both me and my family. I didn’t know why, but I had no options at that point so I had to trust them.
 It was my job to decode that message in the limited amount of time that I had. I spent about an hour listening and grabbing applicable information from the slightly changed songs. I felt myself at a loss trying to find the subliminal path laid out. A gospel live stream popped up on my laptop and there was a different group that wanted me to sing with them(The church). The song was hallelujah. About halfway through the song I had a religious epiphany. I blacked out for a couple of seconds, and came to singing the song hallelujah while holding my arms out toward my mirror in a hugging motion. The people in the gospel livestream were rejoicing loudly and I heard someone say it's him. I immediately knew they thought I was the second coming and I dropped to my knees to denounce that. 

I took my notebook and started writing in my notebook a message. It said me for my family. I looked at the shotgun on my floor for a brief moment. But that was not an option due to my upbringing and marine background. The path became clear when I mentally snapped. They had accepted my deal, me for my family. I briefly looked at my shotgun and then headed downstairs to tell
My parents that Ineeded to go to a mental hospital to meet anonymous. I went outside to wait and my mom went and made a phone call that took about ten minutes. I don't know who she was talking to but when she came out I knew we were good because the cops didn't show up. And then off we went, I played the part quite well on the ride I remember. I told my parents I loved them and then after listening to faded with a stranger one last time, I went in to accept my fate. I asked for one last cigarette and my dad gave me a half a one that tasted quite odd.

A lady came in once I was laying in the hospital bed to "take blood" and give me something to sleep. I thought this was the end but it was not. I woke up the next day and could have sworn my mom said the doctor wanted to see me. I told her I was still tired and rolled over and went back to bed. Then when I woke up they brought me into a room with a security guard posted up right near me. My mom told me they were going to move me to come after I eat. Then they moved me to omh. I checked in and now this is where things get crazy. However, the memories are still very blurry 

I was given a mask, and I swear it felt like I had my memory wiped about 5 minutes after putting it on. I enjoyed it quite a lot. I was under the impression that I would die (I was very surprised I woke up). I went into the mental hospital and I went through the check-in process for entering into inpatient(explain in detail the process of checking in). It was pretty demeaning to say the least. I thought I would make contact with the resistance or whoever gave me the subliminal messages to go to the mental hospital. But that did not happen. I thought to myself, Why would the security guard drug me if I am in a safe place? I immediately knew I was in grave danger and that I had to be on guard at all times. I was shown my room and I introduced myself to my roommate bob. (I would later come to find out that bob was a former marine). My head was really really messed up from the medication that they had given me. I chilled in my room for a while and finally went out to walk up and down the hallways to attempt to identify any possible way out. I needed that information later to break out if needed. I identified a weak link in the armor. It consisted of one door that would get me access to one side and a fence that once jumped would lead me to the running part. I started walking up and down the halls and I noticed a woman that was also doing the same thing. I couldn't help but overhear what she was saying. And to my surprise, she referenced the situation that I had found myself in. She sat down and I sat down next to her. She leaned in and told me that they were going to kill me and skin 
me alive. And she just started maniacally laughing. I knew I was in a facility run by the organization after me. I sat there and then it came to me. Don't feed into it gather as much intel as possible and plot your next chess move carefully. So I fucking laughed with her and we began to laugh together. I made small talk and then I went into the cafeteria to grab some water(which I usually drank a ton of). I grabbed a glass and I shit you not it was like it had corn syrup in it. It was water but THICK. I had no choice so I drank the liquid. It was my only source of water and at this point in my information gathering, I dared not bring up any intel that I was finding out about.

I saw a couple of people in the cafeteria and decided to make small talk. I met a female named Angel and another female named Haley. They seemed nice enough but I couldn't get it out of my head that something just seemed very very off about this place and the people that I was meeting. They told me about the groups they offer as therapy and told me I should make an appearance. I tried my best to remember but I could not for the life of me and ended up missing it and just roaming the halls. Nighttime was fast approaching so I ducked into a place that they had labeled the quiet room and I was lucky enough to meet a man named Scooba Steve. He introduced himself and made it a point to tell 
me that he was a man of god. I noted this and we continued to make some small talk which consisted of religion. I asked him to say some prayers for me that night and I left him there to read his bible. I later found out he was very devoted to and any bit of free time he had was devoted to reading the bible. They called for nighttime meds so I went to the counter to get mine. They gave me a sleeping pill and an antipsychotic and then to my surprise they gave me a nicotine lozenge. I was extremely happy about this due to fiending for some good ol' nicotine. I planned on staying up all night which I did. I needed to see exactly how many staff they had and if they were involved in this or if they were legit(spoiler alert, they were not).

In the hallways there were nooks where you could sit down and admire the artwork. I posted up in one of those nooks near my room and just kept an eye on everyone that night. Nothing happened, but i did notice that the security guard makes one pass a night. If I needed to get out I could easily use him as a plan b so I noted that in my playbook and in my spare time fashioned me a toothbrush shank.
