2023.06.02 00:30 mrshanana True green alternative?
Hey, I tried with the IFA, but I have like the only lawn it doesn't work on.
True green is doing a mediocre job, but I have giant chunks of my lawn dying (despite reseeding) and covered in weeds. They're close to one of my baby trees, so I want to get that all under control.
Tree is so baby she provides little to no shade at this point.
I'm happy to do anything DIY anyone can suggest as well. I've been hoping to get some of that drought tolerant grass but looks like it is only for SLC. They ever open that up and I'll be one of the first people to start killing their lawn to replant it.
If I could figure out how to replant it now, I guess.

2023.06.02 00:30 LilEdge a message to whoever decided to nerf guardian angel...
You will be destroyed.
I know sometimes rioters come across random reddit posts so I am posting here in hopes that one of them witnesses my rage and passes my Curse along to whichever one of their colleagues had the bright idea to nerf guardian angel. I have had it up to here (imagine me extending my arms and holding my hands out wide to show how far I've had it) with you, "riot games".
Before I begin my Curse, let me preface this with saying I've heard the rumors; the Corporate Gods at riot really don't give a shit about runeterra as a whole, much less the spinoff pve mode within it. I figure you guys are working with like, four people and a budget of three canadian dollars. I figure the only thing keeping PoC going is the sheer passion those four devs have for the mode and for the community of players who enjoy said mode. So it is with the same passion for this game that I CURSE YOU!!!!
While I am known for my prowess in PVP, I am also a powerful path of champions lover. When I spend my hard earned cash on this game, it is only because of PoC and the PoC related rewards in the battle pass, etc. So don't get me wrong- I'm not a hater, but a lover. Yet I am also a fighter. And I am appalled by the sheer audacity you must have to NERF GUARDIAN ANGEL, right before my eyes. Who cares if Leblanc creates infinite Leblancs?! Do you think the ASOL BOT cares?! NO!!! IT IS A COMPUTER!!! It would be one thing if PoC got consistent balance changes across the board, but it DOESNT. Ornn is still laughably terrible, Nasus is just an unplayable joke who LITERALLY doesn't work more often than not, there is still random ass phantom prankster in half the shadow isles decks for no reason, and while we're here- VI's powers and deck (while not terrible) are kinda baffling. So this game is NEVER balanced in order to make Shit Content less shit, which I could easily excuse as devs focusing on moving forward with new stuff, but all of a sudden you guys have infinite time when it comes to NERFING good content to make it shit?! Who the fuck came into work one day and was like, "you know what? guardian angel has really been fucking up the PoC bot and it's really getting on my nerves. let's nerf it."
Nerfing fun things makes no sense in the gamemode that's all about finding the funniest most broken combos possible! Frankly, it's not like this gamemode is difficult or competitive in the first place. There are several characters who quite literally cannot lose no matter what handicaps you throw at them. So the fact guardian angel got a buff to be cool as hell, and then was immediately nerfed is ABSURD!!! I CURSE YOU, UNNAMED DEV WHO NERFED GUARDIAN ANGEL! I CURSE YOU...

2023.06.02 00:29 NancyAurum Debuking the "Nancy Follows Trends" Accusations
| || | submitted by NancyAurum to symta [link] [comments]
I have recently found myself facing accusations of following trends and jumping on the machine learning bandwagon, particularly after the release of GPT-3. However, I must clarify that my interest in Markov Models predates the emergence of GPT-2, dating back to 2007 when I embarked on the Symta programming language project that required a pattern matching engine. My knowledge of generative grammars and Markov models originated from a Common Lisp example, although I swiftly dismissed the single token-approach due to the inherent limitations of natural language as a context-free grammar. At that time, I actually developed a rudimentary attention-based Markov Model, employing a voting process to establish correlations between various elements within the input and output in the C programming language (which I elaborated upon in my book, "One Life in Russia"). My aim was to handle the entire state as a whole and transform it into multiple output values, rather than a single token, in order to achieve greater generality. Unfortunately, the model proved to be prohibitively slow, and lacking any reference to existing research literature, I ultimately abandoned the project, returning to the classic POP-11/Refal pattern matching paradigm.
Subsequently, I chanced upon the concept of word embedding, which involved the introduction of a vector space to represent natural language words. While intriguing, this approach did not offer significant utility for my language project at the time. Regrettably, I failed to recognize how it could optimize the functioning of the Markov model. Moreover, my understanding of linear algebra was limited, as I regarded it solely as a tool for 3D graphics, rather than recognizing its broader applicability, including its relevance to Markov Inference as a matrix multiplication. I possessed knowledge of KD-trees and BSPs, but their connection to Markov models eluded me. Consequently, I dismissed these advancements as mere academic noise.
Suddenly, another transgender individual contacted me, expressing that Markov Models were now capable of performing advanced pattern matching and more. I was taken aback and questioned how this problem had been solved. This prompted me to delve into the current research, and I discovered the elegant methodologies employed to address the issue. It made me wonder if it was finally feasible to integrate the solution into Symta, which had always been my aspiration.
Therefore, I must emphasize that my engagement with Markov Models predates any trendiness; rather, I am genuinely enthusiastic about the elegant resolution of a problem that I previously found too challenging for my skills. Nevertheless, even if I had possessed the necessary mathematical proficiency, I would have been unable to construct a robust model for such complex pattern matching.
2023.06.02 00:29 HappilyAHeathen Girlfriend deliberately let me think she was dead.
I mostly just need to vent about this. I'm a man in my late thirties. I spent the entirety of my twenties committed to one person and dated sporadically in my thirties with less than inspiring results.
Had been in a relationship with this girl for three or four months. She was about 8 years younger than me, worked part time as a barista and lived with her mother in a one bedroom apartment but she was incredibly sweet and enthusiastic and would do these sweet gestures like writing me letters about how excited she was to be with me and bringing lunch to me at work so I fell for her pretty hard and fast--dating in my thirties has generally been a pretty disappointing affair, with most women treating me like some kind of consolation settlement for not getting what they really wanted, so spending time with someone who seemed genuinely enthusiastic about me was.... like a drug.
After about four months or so she wanted to meet my family who I'm not on great terms with but I settled and took her to my brother and sister-in-law's place. While she was there, they let slip that I live... uncomfortably close to my mother--when the pandemic ended, my landlords hiked their rent beyond what I was willing to pay so I reached out to my mother's landlady who had what I needed but the catch was being essentially next door to her. I'm not on great terms with my mother so I spent the entire time living there trying to pretend her place wasn't a rock's throw away... therefore it never really occurred to me to mention it.
Anyway, when my girlfriend found out, she didn't handle it well and accused me of hiding things from her. I apologized and we had a very long talk about it and it seemed like things had gotten better for half a week or so. One morning she was leaving my place to go to a class and about five minutes after she left, my entire house began to shake--it turns out a tornado had torn through the area, ripped the roofs off of a number of businesses and residences--there was a car crushed under a tree all of about a block away from my home so when I got out to survey the damage I was immediately worried about her.
Texted her immediately and asked if she was okay but got no response. I work in tv so my entire day was occupied with covering the path of the storm and all of the damage it had caused in between trying to see if there was anyone who could safely check on her. By the end of what turned out to be a twelve hour day I was a shaking mess with still no response--and I wouldn't get one for another three days. It was nonchalant and completely unapologetic. After that response, I wouldn't hear from her for another week when I finally got upset.
She called and still didn't apologize, only giving me a lame excuse about not being in a good headspace but I was so happy to hear her voice for the first time since the tornado hit that I forgave her. For the next couple weeks we kept making plans with about a 75% chance of her cancelling at the last minute. During the last night we were together she found out that one of my best friends who she hadn't met yet (new mother, so not a lot of time for socializing) and I had dated very briefly about eight years before, proclaimed she was sick of the lies and stormed out of my home. She broke up with me via text and told me never to talk to her again.
In summary I guess this post is half complaining about ghosting and half me trying to figure normal people out... like I'm about 80% sure I'm some variety of on the spectrum but it wasn't really a thing that was tested regularly when I was younger and don't really care enough to bother now, so I guess I need to have normal brains explained to me sometimes. Should I move forward in life always ready to detail every bit of minutia about my life in explicit and immediate detail, such as exactly what proximity my mother's home is to mine and whether or not my best friend and I initially dated for a hot second before deciding we'd much rather be friends almost a decade ago?

2023.06.02 00:29 offwhiteD Am I Eligible for EI
I currently work as a salesperson. My company has changed our pay plan(commission) percentage last month.
I no longer see the value of working all these hours strictly on commission pay and being available 24/7 if I’m not getting compensated fairly for my efforts.
My question is would be this be grounds to getting EI while I go search for another job?
There is no base pay in this job. If you go the entire month without selling you get “topped up” 2000 or so dollars(minimum wage) but then it’s deducted from your next paycheck if you make more than minimum wage

2023.06.02 00:28 Cake_Eater26 The War to end all Wars - Ep 5. Christmas Truce
The fanfic based on a u/Snudwoner
Tibek, 21 years old Venlil
Date: 23th December 1914
Place: Near Ypres, Belgium.
The whole year was rough. I sometimes couldn’t fall asleep because of people who I saw die. I saw them die either from bullets or being beaten to death by some mediaeval age weaponry that is used in trenches. Some of them were executed for deserting some were torn apart, shredded into pieces by an artillery shell, I’d probably have shot myself already if it wasn't Otto or Rilek. Adolf sometimes was cheering me up and it was enough to keep myself somehow not broken and in one piece.
I heard a whistle and gunshots. I took my rifle and quickly ran to the nearest available spot to shoot the enemy. The tactics were still the same, just suicidal attack with mix of artillery in hope the defending side will break and attackers will take trenches. I took the spot and aimed my rifle at the enemy and pulled the trigger. He fell dead on the ground after I shot, then I chambered the next round.
Earlier when the war started I was hesitating to shoot somebody, they had families…kids. They had someone to love them and that hesitation almost got me killed. Twice in September and once in November, I was close to death three times because I didn’t want to make another family lose its son or father.
As the war raged on and turned into a bloody, violent mess, so did I. I understood that if I did not kill the person in front of my rifle I would die. I surely wanted to live as them but I had no other choice…not to shoot…death. Desertion? Death…everything leads to death except killing. I sometimes couldn’t understand the stupid “Rush in hope they break” tactic which always resulted in high casualties due to counter artillery fire and machine guns. It sometimes was a miracle if this worked.
I heard artillery noise and later the shells were exploding, almost hitting our trench. I took cover and heard a sound of somebody approaching the trench and I peeked out with my rifle aimed at the soundmaker. I saw the face of a Venlil in a french uniform which still was that dumb bright red and blue form. He looked into my eyes and I looked into his….I hesitated to shoot him again and he aimed his pistol at me but the artillery shell exploded.
I fell on the trench floor as my cap went flying back from the explosion, my face got coated in his orange blood and guts and probably one piece of it made into my mouth. I quickly spit what was in my mouth and sat, my breath was fast alongside with the heartbeat. I hesitated again and it almost got me killed…happily or not the poor soldier was killed by his own artillery fire.
I stood up and took the post I got pushed by the exploded shell and aimed my gun at the British human soldier. I noticed that one of them had some markings on his uniform and I shot him first…in the head. His cap flew a bit off his head and fell on the ground as his dead body fell on the ground, not moving. The soldiers around him looked panicked and scared as I thought that I shot their officer…maybe one day they will stop just being first on the frontline.
I quickly chambered the next round into my rifle and shot another soldier…then another. I heard that they started to whistle and we prepared to launch our counter attack but their artillery shells dropped on our positions and they were hitting the trenches itself, damaging it and killing dozens of my fellow brothers in arms. I decided to quickly hide to not get killed and I left my position and took a turn then the shell exploded.
I felt the power of this shell as I fell on trench ground and my ears were ringing. I felt pain in my whole body and I felt that I was being torn apart from inside. It was hard to keep my eyes open and I saw Otto quickly running to me, I couldn’t hear what he was saying and the last I saw was him taking me in his hands and dragging me somewhere, then….everything went dark.
— Date: 24th December 1914.
I slowly opened my eyes and still felt dizzy and some pain in my limbs and body. I looked around and saw Otto, Rilek and Adolf nearby. Otto noticed me and quickly came to me, checking if I’m alright.
“Tibek! You’re good! Gott sei Dank!" He said and shook me slightly. I slightly laughed seeing that somebody is caring about me. Rilek also came and smiled when seeing me. I slowly stood up and was sitting on a built-in bench in the trench. I slowly approached Adolf and patted him on the shoulder, he slowly looked at me and stood up. He tightly hugged me, seeing that I’m alive and fine.
“Mein gott! You made me worry!” He said and I tightly hugged him back.
“Don’t worry my kameraden, I’m tough to kill.” I replied and laughed. I saw something white drop on the ground and looked around, others did too. I saw snowflakes falling on the ground which meant that Christmas is here. At least some holidays I liked…when I was kid.
I heard some soldiers cheering and looked to the right and saw some of them decorating a small christmas tree. I felt some joy for the first time in this bloody war. I heard some shouting and I took my rifle as did others and we quickly rushed to the positions.
As we arrived and took positions I saw the enemy in the trench, the trenches were not that far and we were able to see each other. We didn’t start to shoot at each other as usual. I then looked on the left and saw Otto who looked strange.
He took some bottle and slowly raised them from the trench, he slowly pulled out the bottle of wine and showed it to our enemy and walked toward them.
“WHAT YOU DOING?! GET BACK!” I heard Rilek shout as Otto didn’t stop. He continued to slowly walk towards them and I heard that some of the enemy troopers were shouting too and then I saw one of them do the same Otto.
They slowly approached each other as we were yelling at them and aiming our guns at each other. Then Otto and the British soldier….shook each other's hands. I felt unusual and lowered my gun….this is Christmas, the holiday of humans Jesus. I slowly understood that it's madness to shoot each other during this great holiday and I slowly stood up and put a rifle on my shoulder. And started to approach them. I had some fear that I might be shot…but with each step I took the fear slowly disappeared.
As I approached Otto and the British soldier he offered his hand and I shook it without thinking, then came the French soldier and we did the same. I looked around and saw other people coming closer and shaking hands, some of them were hugging. I heard someone yell and saw them bringing the ball for football, they started to talk with other soldiers and put rifles nearby. I did the same and put my gun down into the same pile with French, British, Belgium and our guns.
I saw Otto discussing something with a German and British soldier who probably knew Deutch. I saw a British venlil soldier approaching me and he hugged me. He hugged me tightly and I heard him quietly crying. I hugged him back as tight as I could, then he stopped hugging and put his hand into his pocket and when he pulled it out it was a card which had a girl with a christmas outfit on it and some words in their language. I didn’t know it but I understood that it was a “Merry Christmas” card. Wish I could send one to my family….I hugged him last time and he walked back to their trench.
I never felt so peaceful in the war and it was very silent, no guns shooting…no artillery sounds. It was….just silence….just peace. The peace we are all fighting for. I got poked at my shoulder and saw Otto.
“Hey Tibek, have you ever played football?” He said and I looked at him with a bit of confusion but I quickly understood what he’s about.
“Uh….no I never played it.” I replied.
“Well…would you like to?” He said and slightly laughed and stood aside, revealing that British, German, Belgium and French soldiers were standing in front of each other waiting for my answer.
“J-ja… I wo-would like to.” I said thinking that it would be hard to play football.
“Well then let’s go, we got the whole team to play against them, heh.” He said and walked towards them and I followed him.
For the next several hours we were playing football, I never could think that I would be playing the sport I never played before with my enemy. The game was fun, filled with fun and joy I finally experienced. We even had a large crowd standing around and watching how we played. Otto explained how to play this game and I quickly understood and was getting better each minute.
The match finally ended in a tie. We all were exhausted and near each other, then someone started to sing a song and slowly Otto started to sing too. I saw Rilek and Adolf join as some British and French soldiers. I soon joined in singing too, we were drinking, singing and trading some stuff with each other for some time.
After this Otto organised us and them to clean the battlefield. We all worked together as a team and I saw that officer that I shot several hours ago. I felt tears running down my cheeks as I helped a British soldier dig a grave for him and bury him. Soon we all cleaned it and returned back to what we were doing till nightfall. I saw a Belgian and German soldier putting the large cross on the No Man’s Land. It was time to say goodbye. I tightly hugged British and French Venlil, hoping that we will be able to see each other after this war ends. I think I made some friends during this time.
Tonight we’re all friends and brothers no matter what happened in the past. Who knows, maybe without this war the people who died would’ve done something great for our society. All of us slowly returned back to the trenches, not forgetting the guns. I still felt exhausted and as soon as I got to a bunk I fell asleep on it.

2023.06.02 00:28 I_hate_ice_age_baby Chance a International Student Athlete With Mid Stats
White caucasian international student in Asia going to a well known private feeder school. I’m currently a rising Junior and will most likely get a 3.8-85 GPA this year which is a drop from 3.95 last year. Our school doesn’t do weighted so i’m not sure where I stand there but so far i’ve taken: Honors Chem Honors Bio APES next year: AP mac/mic AP Lang AP Chem HPhysics Ap Phys 1 (test only)
My school historically has produced few student athletes as students are typically more academically inclined so I’m not sure what my chances are at top universities without their ECs, mine include:
National swimmer (have travelled for free with my national team to represent)
National championship where I live in one of the distance freestyle events in my age group (don’t wanna get doxxed)
Consistent top 3 finisher in the events in my age group
Ranked top 150 in the world for my graduating class by Swimcloud (time-wise)
Besides swimming I am also in a non profit that teaches nanny’s how to swim and will probably lead my schools operation next year
I have a spot on my schools athletic planning board and will lead marketing
Marketing committee member in a small team that hosts a event every year that raises 50k plus dollars and may get leadership of all marketing next year
Awards: Honor Roll with distinction (2 years) Lots of overall meet winners and trophies from various swim meets (don’t know if they’re worth anything)
Id be super glad if anyone with experience could just chime in on what schools I can aim for or what I need to do in Junior year to get on track. Im aiming for D1 and am past the recruiting standard for most schools and ideally need some scholarship money, but some D2/3 safeties would also be fine.

2023.06.02 00:28 unknown_pigeon Tried morde support to counter a Yuumi lane, now I can't stop playing it in ranked.
Basically what the title said.
I was playing ranked with a friend. Enemy support picked Yuumi. I thought about the interaction between Yuumi W and Morde R, so I went "Why not?".
What resulted was pure chaos. Jinx Morde vs Akshan Yuumi. We stomped lane since lvl 3, and from lvl 6 it was basically a free double kill every time I had ult up. When the Akshan actually had enough money to build a QSS, the game was already over - and I could ult any other carry, since Akshan was too behind to represent any kind of trouble. Keep in mind that it was a Gold game, so I don't know how it would work in higher elo. Since then, I've played it against other kinds of lanes and we (almost) always had a good time. Benefits:
- No mana: what every support dreams about: spamming spells without having to go back to base. Because you've also got...
- ...Sustain, in the form of both shields and heals. The longer the trade, the more you benefit from both.
- CC: You've got an AoE pull which also gives you passive Magic Penetration, allowing you to make up for the item slot you're losing by going support and, well, the limited amount of gold you can get compared to other roles. Oh, and the pull goes through minions and terrain.
- AoE damage with both Passive and Q, with the latter having also single target bonus.
Then, at level 6, you unlock your ult. You can then choose the high priority target to take to Brazil, while your ADC dispatches of their preferred target. Even if you can't kill your victim, it's very unlikely that they manage to kill you, so if your ADC either kill or make the other enemy flee, you're then left in a 2v1 situation. Most of the times, you can even kill your target in the early game inside your ult. Happy little instruments that allow for this pick to work in the early game:
- Runes: personally, I like to go for standard runes (conqueror tree with bone plating/conditioning and revitalize). They work beautifully both for burst ADCs like early Kai'sa and DPS focused ones like Kog.
- Summoners: ghost+exhaust. Ghost can help you close distances in your ult against mobile targets, and exhaust basically denies any kind of fighting back while also adding a slow on top of your ghost.
Now for the cons
of this pick:
- I've found that poke lanes are manageable by playing aggressively, while aggressive picks such as Lucian+Nami are troublesome before level 6
- Peeling: if there are multiple threats to your adc, you're basically leaving them alone the moment you ult a high priority target. Also, when your ult is on CD, your only way of peeling is your E, which is painfully slow.
- Spell shields: Sivir and Morgana can basically deny your ult on demand with a comparatively low cooldown.
- There are just some duos that your ADC can't fight in a 1v1 with either of them.
Now, for my favorite build path!
- First item: most of the times, I like to go straight for Jak'sho. Aegis of the Legion gives you ton of resistances, which scale beautifully with your sustain.
- Boots: it depends on the match-up. If my main target is the support or an APC, Mercuries are basically mandatory. If I'm ulting the ADC, a 12% AA damage reduction + armor is huge in the early to mid game.
- I like to go Anathema second item. It's rather cheap, and by the time you'll be building it, chances are your income will be much more restricted than during the landing phase. It's basically a second, permanent exhaust on the enemy that you will target for your ult. And, surprisingly, health is also good for your W. Sometimes, when the enemy ADC is aggressive - such as a Lucian or a Draven, I can buy Anathema first item.
- Rest of the build: situation dependant. If the enemy has an AP threat, Visage makes your W broken. If you're against a mostly AD team, either Thornmail for the Grevious wounds or Aegis for the added DPS. Frozen Heart if you're really desperate for armor. Rylai's combos well with your passive, but I generally prefer to go for tank items first. I don't really build Force of Nature, since Visage is simply better on Morde, but you can buy it as your second MR item. Abyssal mask is a meme item, but I have yet to try it again after the buffs.
That's it! I think it's a bully lane, but you have to snowball before the enemy team gets at the point of the game where isolating a single high priority target isn't enough to protect your ADC.
Of course, having played it only in about ten Gold games makes it still a meme pick, but I think it's really fun.

I've just started my journey into rust, and so far so good. My first project has been to output the Mandelbrot set on my home HPC cluster. I really love the CLI tools and sensical compiler errors. Though I will say the learning curve has been a little steeper than I had anticipated, especially WRT mutability & ownership.
I want to ask for feedback on the code I have written so far and to see if there are any obvious mistakes I've made or if there is anything I should look into that would help the structure of my project.
Heres a link to the Code
Thanks for any input!

2023.06.02 00:23 tables_04 My parents made me lend my car to my brother, and then told me I shouldn’t have lended him my car
So my brother is a real piece of work, who treats everyone like trash when he doesn’t get what he wants. (I wonder where he gets it from?) Early last month I was in class, and got a text from my dad asking if my brother could borrow my car. I told him no and that I didn’t trust him with my car. I text my mom, and she tells me that I can drive my dad’s car, and that my brother would refill my car. My dad’s car is the only car that my current wheelchair can fit in, so my car hadn’t been driven much these past few months.
I decide that I’m going to take advantage of this, in order to help pay off the bit of credit card debt I’m in. He borrowed my car for 13 days, trashed it, and left it with less than 1/4 of a tank in it. I tried addressing this with him, and he told me that he didn’t owe me anything.
So at this point, I print off an itemized bill. His total was 200 hundred something dollars, which would’ve payed off all my debit. His interest rate for not paying was 10 cents per day. I even put a note that, enterprise would’ve charged him at least 650 dollars for the two weeks he had my car. My mom signed it and everything was fine.
My brother gets home from work and rips it up. So I take the initiative to remind him diligently that he owes me more than 200 dollars. At one point I bring it up with my mom, who tells me to “get in line.” At another point she went as far to tell my “don’t let people borrow your stuff then.” I didn’t give him permission to borrow my car. I told him no. Also any ideas on how to force him to pay would be greatly appreciated. I’m headed off to college in the fall, and would appreciate not having credit card debt.

2023.06.02 00:21 Truth-or-Death1988 The Rapture Is a Deception, and Putin Is the Beast of Revelation
It’s time to stop smoking the devil’s broccoli and WAKE UP. We are already in the second seal of Revelation, and quickly heading for the third. These seals are meant to wake us up and cause us to repent before it's too late. The first scroll was unsealed March 13 2020, and ended on March 13 2022. The second seal was also undone, and the beast (Vladimir Putin) was unleashed. This is World War 3, and it will come to American soil. The First Seal, the Beast, and the Ten Kings The Second Seal, WW3 – Revelation 6:3-4 & the Beast – Revelation 13:1-2 We are now rapidly approaching the third seal. In our world this means massive hyper-inflation and famine. The fourth seal is a combination of the first three’s affects, and more… It includes, (but is not limited to) WW3, famine, and plague. The Third Seal – Revelation 6:5-6 Fourth and Fifth Seals – Revelation 6:7-11 The dollar will be replaced with CBDC, and AI will provide oversight. This is how the beast will (eventually) cause people to take his mark. Those who take the mark will beg to die because of tribulations, and death will elude them thanks to the TRANSHUMANIST AGENDA! AI’s Role in CBDC – Revelation 13:16-17 Immortality is attainable by 2030: Google scientist Transhumanist Agenda – Revelation 9:6 Occultists like John Darby and Tim LaHaye have deceived millions by taking a few verses out of context, and ignoring some others.

Miles Morales returns for the next chapter of the Oscar winning Spider-Verse saga, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse. After reuniting with Gwen Stacy, Brooklyn’s full-time, friendly neighborhood Spider-Man is catapulted across the Multiverse, where he encounters the Spider Society, a team of Spider-People charged with protecting the Multiverse’s very existence. But when the heroes clash on how to handle a new threat, Miles finds himself pitted against the other Spiders and must set out on his own to save those he loves most. Anyone can wear the mask – it’s how you wear it that makes you a hero.
After a grueling five-year-long wait, Marvel fans everywhere will finally be able to return to the animated multiverse with Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse. The upcoming sequel's predecessor requires no explanation, as Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse not only ensnared audiences and critics alike but also caught a prestigious Oscar win with a Best Animated Feature award. With "New York's one and only Spider-Man," Miles Morales (Shameik Moore), now becoming a household name, fans of the first film eagerly awaited the day they could see young Miles swing into the Spider-Verse again.
Thankfully, the wait is almost finally over, as Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse will return to screens soon. This time Miles will not only be reunited with Gwen Stacey (Hailee Steinfeld) and Peter B. Parker (Jake Johnson) but he'll also be introduced to an entire multiversal society of Spider-people created and led by a particularly pessimistic variant of Spider-Man 2099 (Oscar Isaac). Though some of the other variants in this secretive organization view Miles as a nuisance more than anything else, they'll have to learn to put those apprehensions aside if they hope to save the multiverse from an all-new terrifying threat. As the release date for the sequel to one of the most celebrated Spider-Man films ever made crawls closer and closer, here is precisely where and how you can watch Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse when it premieres this Summer.
If you’re like just about everyone else on the planet who saw Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse in 2018 and loved it, you’ve probably been waiting for the sequel. You won’t be waiting long, as Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is finally coming out in 2023, a full five years later. It’s been a long wait but by all indications the film is going to be a blast for fans of comic book movies, Miles Morales’ version of Spider-Man, and this new animated franchise featuring the iconic webslinger.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is one of the most highly anticipated animated superhero films of 2023. Serving as a sequel to the critically acclaimed Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018), this upcoming installment promises to continue the exhilarating adventures of the Spider-Verse. Fans from all around the globe are eagerly awaiting its release. In this article, we will provide you with all the essential information on the film's release date and how to watch it online from any country, ensuring you don't miss out on this exciting cinematic experience.
This is especially true for many superhero films, which are often tied directly to specific streaming services. Disney+ and HBO Max - now rebranded as MAX - often house the new streaming releases for the MCU and DCU respectively, usually releasing anywhere between 1–3 months after theatrical release. However, with a film like Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, the situation is slightly different given Sony's lack of a dedicated streaming service, here's where to watch and stream Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse online.
When Is the Release Date for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse?
When Is the Release Date for Spider-Man: Across thMiles, Gwen, Peter, and several dozen other Spider-people will be swinging into action when Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse premieres on Friday, June 2nd, 2023. This almost undoubtedly gives Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and The Flash a run for their money as the biggest superhero movie event of the Summer. Spider-Verse?
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse had its world premiere at the Regency Village Theatre on May 30, 2023, and is scheduled for theatrical release in the United States on June 2, delayed from an initial October 2022 date because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Where To Watch Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Online:
As of now, the only way to watch Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is to head out to a movie theater when it premieres on June 2, 2023. You can find a local showing on Fandango.
Otherwise, you’ll just have to wait for it to become available to rent or purchase on digital platforms like Amazon, Vudu, YouTube or Apple, or become available to stream on Netflix.
How to Watch Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse
There's been no official announcement regarding Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse's streaming release date, though we know it will eventually be released on Netflix, rather than Disney+ or HBO Max.
In terms of which of the streaming giants Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse will be released on, Netflix will house the film upon its streaming debut. While again, Sony does not have its own dedicated streaming service, a deal was struck in 2021 between the studio and Netflix. The deal, stating that Netflix would stream Sony's films after theatrical release, was penned for 5 years meaning Across the Spider-Verse is part of the arrangement.
While Sony's Spider-Man content is also streaming on Disney+, due to the collaborations between Sony and Marvel Studios in recent years, Across the Spider-Verse will be a Netflix release. While the deal struck between Marvel Studios and Sony may extend to this film, Disney+ is only allowed to begin streaming Sony's Spider-Man releases upon their release on Netflix. As a result, Netflix will be the first streaming service that Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse will be available on after its theatrical release.
Because it’s airing on FX, you can of course fire up Into the Spider-Verse via FX Now. But in addition, the animated flick is streaming on both fubo (which offers a free trial and has cord-cutting plans starting at $74.99/month; sign up here) and DirecTV (which also offers a free trial and has cord-cutting plans starting at $64.99/month.
Is Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse in Theaters?
Not only was Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse the subject of rave reviews, but it also pulled in some gargantuan levels of cash at the international box office, with a final tally that quadrupled the film's ninety-million dollar budget. With incredible success like that, it's only natural that Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse would also be taking advantage of a theatrical release. That is the case, as the upcoming film will be exclusively available in theaters when it premieres on June 2nd, 2023.
When Will Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Be on Streaming?
The Spider-Man franchise is in a pretty interesting place regarding streaming. The various films of Sony's franchise have typically been scattered across multiple services. That said, following a historic deal between Sony and Disney, the many stories of Peter Parker and beyond are now available on Disney+. This includes the original Sam Raimi trilogy, the first Amazing Spider-Man film, and, starting mid-May, Spider-Man: Homecoming and Venom. Notably absent from the Disney-streaming platform so far are The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Spider-Man: Far From Home, Venom: Let There Be Carnage, Spider-Man: No Way Home, Morbius, and most significant of all, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
Some of the films are not currently available on the service because Sony has pre-existing partnerships with Starz, as that's where most of the absent films are available to stream. That is except for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which is instead only streaming on Fubo TV and FX Now.
If Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse comes to Disney+ before Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse's theatrical run concludes, that would make the House of Mouse's service a likely contender for a streaming release. However, Sony has also historically partnered with Netflix for streaming releases. Up until recently, that's where Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse was available to stream, and Sony still brings their other big releases to the service, like Bullet Train and The Woman King.
When will Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse be streaming on Netflix?
Sony Animation’s big new Spider-Man movie is about to hit theaters and will be headed to Netflix (at least in the United States) later this year. For a prediction as to when and a bit more about the new movie, here’s what you need to know.
As we covered in 2021, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse will be headed to Netflix as the service gets both Sony’s animation and live-action content via a first window deal struck in April 2021.
The deal stipulates that all Sony theatrical movies come to Netflix in the first window, which at a minimum, is 120 days after its theatrical release date. If it arrives exactly 120 days after, it’ll be streaming from September 30th, 2023.
With that said, given how big this movie is, we may see it release a few weeks after the fact. Either way, we expect the movie to be available between late September and November 2023.
Will Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Be Streaming On Netflix?
Yes, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is coming to Netflix approximately in December 2023.
In 2021, Sony and Netflix signed a five-year deal that gave the latter exclusive first-pay-window U.S. streaming rights for Sony Pictures titles after their theatrical and home entertainment windows. Fans can expect to watch Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse on Netflix six months after the film’s theatrical release, thus in December 2023. The date seems reasonable considering that Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse dropped on Netflix on June 26, 2019, six months after its U.S. release on December 14, 2018. The pay-one window usually begins about nine months after a film’s theatrical release, but it might start earlier in particular cases.
Will Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Be On HBO Max?
No, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse will not be on HBO Max since it’s not a Universal Pictures movie. Last year, the company released its films in theaters and on the streamer on the same day. However, they now allow a 45-day window between the theatrical release and the streaming release.
Will Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Be Streaming On Disney+?
Yes, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is also coming to Disney Plus approximately in 2025.
Once the pay-one window runs its time and Netflix’s exclusive rights expire, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse will be available on Disney Plus. The pay-one window might last as long as 18 months, which means it will be a while before Disney Plus subscribers can watch the much-anticipated sequel. Unlike in other countries, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse isn’t yet available on the Disney-owned streamer in the U.S.
American fans will have to wait until 2024 to watch Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and at least until 2025 for its sequel. We will update this post once there is an official Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Disney Plus release date.
Is Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Available On Hulu?
Viewers are saying that they want to view the new Marvel's animation movie Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse on Hulu. Unfortunately, this is not possible since Hulu currently does not offer any of the free episodes of this series streaming at this time. It will be exclusive to the MTV channel, which you get by subscribing to cable or satellite TV services. You will not be able to watch it on Hulu or any other free streaming service.

When Will Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Be on DVD and Blu-ray?
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse will likely be coming to DVD and Blu-ray around the same time as the streaming release. With theatrical films, on average, coming to streaming sooner than ever (usually ninety days after theatrical release), we'll likely see Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse get a DVD, and Blu-ray release no later than Fall 2023.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Cast and Characters
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse was written by Dave Callaham, Phil Lord and Chris Miller and directed by Joaquim Dos Santos, Kemp Powers and Justin K. Thompson. It stars the following actors:

What is Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse About?
Returning with many of your favorite characters, including Gwen Stacy/Spider-Woman, Peter B. ParkeSpider-Man, and of course Miles Morales as our primary Spider-Man, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is set one year after the events of the previous film. Miles (Shameik Moore) is coming into his own as Spider-Man when he is unexpectedly approached by Spider-Gwen (Hailee Steinfeld) with an extraordinary opportunity. Does Miles want to help a team of Spider-People, led by Spider-Man 2099 (Oscar Isaac) protect the multiverse from the terrifying threat of a man known as The Spot (Jason Schwartzman)?
Obviously, Miles is going to say yes, setting him up for an adventure that will expand this movie’s concept of the multiverse in every possible way. Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse promises tons of new characters and worlds, without losing sight of what people have come to love about this particular Spider-franchise.
Miles Morales has become a massively popular Spider-Man, and you can be certain he’ll be at the center of Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse’s chaotic blend of action, comedy, comic book aesthetics, and large-scale science fiction. It seems more likely than not that Across the Spider-Verse will be the biggest animated release of 2023.

2023.06.02 00:20 NotNiko15 [Demo] Modern Cosmic Horrors chapter 1
Modern Cosmic Horrors
Interstellar Terran Print, 2145
Chapter 1: Predator Dream
This story was made in collaboration with an arxur. Big thanks big guy.
Memory Transmission Subject: Vinro, Arxur Cattle Farmer
Date [Standardized Human Time]: May 2130
I have been having nightmares lately. It is an uncommon fact among Federation species that arxur can feel fear, and we want it to stay that way. We are not excused when having nightmares. We are expected to overcome them, however it’s much easier to run from it and wake up. It is in our best interest to be unnoticed and pretend to sleep. Waking up screaming is infantile and it’s greatly frowned upon.
These nightmares are unordinary. I’ve been dreaming the same nightmare for weeks. I am a preyed upon. Something unspoken is chasing me through the forest. The fear of being hunted is clawing on my mind, but not enough to wake up. I feel exhaustion in my dreams, but I always manage to pull through until the dreaming sleep phase ends, and I eventually wake up.
I work as a cattle farmer, I rear venlil cattle. Their meat is highly valued, especially scrag and shoulders, which are soft. Their legs are definitely stronger, but it’s nothing for our jaws, and there is more meat to harvest. I only feed them grass and leaves. If they ever wanted a fruit, they would have to work hard to earn it. They always fail though. I suppose the grass and leaves diet doesn’t give them enough energy to work efficiently, but my colleagues just marginalize it saying the prey is just too weak for our duties. I knew who was correct, they lack nutrients, but I wasn’t willing to provide it to them. I don’t care, and I can’t afford being ostracized.
As usual I had the same nightmare. I could have sworn they are worse with each day. It was suddenly interrupted as I was awoken in the dead of night by a noise coming from the pens. Keeping my nightmares in mind I can not say that I hold a grudge against the cattle for waking me up. I simply stood up and went to investigate the noise.
The night was rather cold and the stars were unobstructed by clouds and light pollution. The farm was surrounded by trees. When I entered the pen, I saw a prey laying on the ground, twitching in its dream. Its welfare was negligible, but a pitiful picture nonetheless. It mumbled audibly, without a doubt it was responsible for the sudden scream. I kicked it in the chest lightly with the intention of waking it up.
It suddenly opened its eyes and rested one of them on me. The sight of a hulking arxur was probably not as bad as its nightmare, because it stopped shuddering. Was it relieved to be still alive? I leaned over with dominance to emphasize my following command.
“Stop making noise.” I said with a bland but cold voice. I was good at imposing fear by being devoid of emotions, but even now, the prey did not freeze, but silently backed away a little. “Go back to sleep” I added, I paid no attention to its abnormal bravery.
“No! Please!” It bursted suddenly. “The nightmares will hunt me again!” The other cattle started waking up and a noise soon filled the air. It was the moment when I finally felt wrath. I kicked the culprit in its temple, knocking it out. The chatter soon went silent after that presentation.
Despite working at the cattle farm, I am not allowed to snack on the cattle. The amount of cattle must not change without being recorded. If the meat is harvested, we take records. If it’s punished by death, duly noted. If prey escapes, it must be found, dead or alive. If it dies from sickness, everyone must know. Snacking on cattle in the middle of the night is considered theft, even if I wanted to give an example to the remaining.
When I left the pen and was about to close it, I saw it twitching again. This time more erratic. It looked like a seizure. More noises started to fill the air. I sighed, picked up the prey and headed to the cold store. If it survives the seizure, the number of cattle won’t change. If not, at least the meat won’t start spoiling and it will be noted as natural death.
I opened the doors and a cool atmosphere started to escape the room. The red bulb lit up the room, there were chunks of meat hanging from the ceiling. I dropped the twitching prey on the ground and started observing it. It was slowly but surely crawling to the closest wall. Then it started climbing up, backed up against the wall until it stood up. It was then when I snapped out of the trance. The prey was supposed to be unconscious, yet it stood there, piercing me with its big, glassy eye. The red dot reflected in it. I decided to end this charade and took a step, when it launched towards the meat chunk and drowned its dull teeth in it. The venlil tried to tear a piece of meat, aiding with its tiny claws. When it finally managed to get a morsel, it gulped it entirely and faced me.
“Go back to sleep,” It said, in a fluent arxurian.
I recognized the venlil as a thread and bared my teeth in order to charge, but when it came to this, the venlil dived under my legs and ran straight to the pens. I hurried behind it and was met with a horrible sight. There were venlil killing each other, ripping their windpipes off. Some were shouting and crying. One of them came to me and started begging me for help and to release them from their disease. Predator disease, as they called it. On cue the predatory venlil pounced on the pleading prey and tore him apart. It was then, when I noticed the gate to pens was open and all venlil started to flee. The predators were focused on me this time, I could count at least ten. I thought I was dreaming. Was the unspoken oppressor the venlil all this time? Was the mare that hunted venlil changing them into predators? Will my mare turn me into a prey when I go to sleep? I was frozen. I did not care about the consequences of showing fear, I was overwhelmed by it. I started running deep into the forest. When I was exhausted from running, I collapsed by the tree and zoned out.
I woke up at dawn. I knew I was afraid in my dream, but I could not remember any details. My legs were hurting, like I’ve been walking all night. After resting and examining the surroundings I realized I was completely lost.
I was wandering through the forest, analyzing what happened last night. The venlil were dead, some of them. The rest probably fled. The carcasses will be harvested for meat that needs to be eaten quickly. Living cattle can be stored longer than harvested meat. If I return to the farm, not only will they take me for a lunatic, but I will be charged for wasting food and executed. By contrast, venlil who fled will be tracked and used for breeding to fill the shortage, no harm will be done to them for a long time. I will be hunted by my people.
And my dreams.

2023.06.02 00:20 vehstijul What's going on with my lime tree? (SoCal)
2023.06.02 00:20 Stock_Visualizer Nvidia’s CEO just gave a graduation speech about the future of work and said that A.I. won’t steal jobs but ‘someone who’s an expert with A.I. will’
Students graduating this year will see A.I. transform the workplace as they enter it. They can ride the new technological wave to professional success or be left in the dust, Nvidia’s CEO told graduates at National Taiwan University.
Jensen Huang, in Taipei to give a NTU commencement speech on Friday, told students that the world is entering a new technological era that will surpass the invention of even the internet, the personal computer, and smartphones.
“A.I. has reinvented computing from the ground up,” Huang said. “In every way, this is a rebirth of the computer industry.”
Over the next decade, as graduates establish themselves in the workforce, over $1 trillion of traditional computers will be upgraded or replaced with ones that are better for A.I., he predicted. Chipmaker Nvidia
itself touched a $1 trillion market cap on Tuesday after posting estimate-shattering quarterly earnings. The tech company has harnessed the A.I. boom to become the first chipmaker to break the trillion-dollar mark, as its graphics processing units are integral to the operation of generative A.I. platforms.
Huang urged students to do the same as Nvidia by capitalizing on the coming shift. He acknowledged that the new technology will make many jobs obsolete, but said it will produce a spate of new professions including data engineering, A.I. factory operations, A.I. safety engineers, and prompt engineering, which involves crafting and entering requests for A.I. chatbots to generate specific responses including code or visuals.
In his keynote speech at the COMPUTEX Taipei conference on Monday, Huang introduced an A.I. platform through which “everyone can be a programmer.” Called DGX GH200, the technology can produce code from natural language prompts, nodding to Huang’s forecast about prompt engineering becoming a burgeoning line of work.
Between the jobs that will be created and destroyed by A.I., there are many professions that will become hybrids of manual and automated labor. Hedge funds and investment banks are currently experimenting with automating time consuming tasks such as sifting through market research and summarizing funds’ performance statements.
Greg Bond, CEO of investment firm Man Group’s Boston unit, suggested that A.I. could amplify the capabilities of each human worker.
“If we assume research productivity is dropping more globally, you can either hire more people or you could have some digital researchers that are a force multiplier on your existing research and technology staff,” Bond told Bloomberg
. “Ultimately what would be nice is if we could automate the innovation process itself.”
Similarly, Huang emphasized that everyone in business, from institutions to individuals, must take advantage of A.I. to “supercharge” performance. He told NTU’s graduates that they would accomplish amazing things with the assistance of an “A.I. copilot” to augment their work.
Huang concluded his speech by recounting decades of “mistakes” and business failures that Nvidia avoided by confronting errors as they arose.
“Retreat does not come easily to the brightest and most successful people,” Huang said. “Yet strategic retreat, sacrifice, deciding what to give up, is at the very core of success.”
He urged students to “run, don’t walk” to greet change, prioritizing adaptability to the global technological revolution.

2023.06.02 00:19 Lightning-Caster Landlords trying to extort me for thousands of dollars over ERAP clerical error / overpayment
I am 35, disabled, and am in desperate need of free pro-bono representation for low-income disabled people. My landlord is literally trying to destabilize my entire life right now and is endangering my survival and livelihood, demanding more than two entire months worth of my tiny income (BEFORE bills) as I literally survive on less minimum wage of undersized benefits that are not even enough for me to barely survive on even before this whole nightmare began. I do not owe them this money.
In early March 2023, I discovered an unrecognized balance of several hundreds of dollars due in the rent portal website where I always pay my rent. When I called my landlords to find out why this strange and illegitimate balance was appearing on my account, they told me there was some kind of over payment from the Emergency Rental Assistance Program (or ERAP, for short) from when it helped me in mid 2021 while I was suffering in financial crisis from the lockdowns. I told them I hadn't received any kind of mail nor notification from ERAP regarding anything about any over payments, and that I’m only legally bound to pay my monthly rent per our lease agreement. The landlords told me not to ignore this strange balance on my account, and sent me a copy of the invoice they received from ERAP.
Now, not only are my landlords literally trying to extort me for these hundreds of dollars that I am not contractually bound to pay (claiming it is for several months worth of supposedly missed rent in 2021) but for the past few months they have DOUBLED and then TRIPLED the illegitimate balance due out of nowhere and are now demanding thousands of dollars as well as several late fees even though I’ve been paying my normal section 8 rent on time! This portal is also connected to my credit and is causing damage to my credit score which they now must now be held liable to make amends for. I have receipts and proof that all my rent was paid by ERAP during the alleged months in 2021, and they cannot legally double charge me for rent which I’ve already paid to these corrupt landlords!
Since the landlords refused to remove this illegal and illegitimate balance that isn’t even part my lease agreement (and is much higher than the section 8 amount that I pay each month), I called my section 8 worker and asked her to intervene. After weeks of leaving unreturned voicemails, she finally responded claiming she supposedly can’t intervene, and said I needed to call ERAP because it is a separate program from section 8.
So I called ERAP, who told me I needed to speak to the supervisor about this type of issue. So after several weeks of leaving unreturned voicemails to the lazy and useless supervisor, he finally called and emailed me back stating the overpayment was because whoever processed my application failed to indicate that I had section 8, which resulted in the overpayment. I asked him to take accountability for the mistakes of their ERAP staff members by wiping this alleged overpayment since I am not liable for other people’s mistakes and clerical errors of their staff at the housing office. The supervisor responded saying I don’t owe ERAP any money because this is an issue between ERAP and my landlords who accepted the money, which is why I never received any mail nor notification of this overpayment, because it is not between ERAP and myself. So then I asked, since this issue is between only ERAP and the landlords and not me, then why were my landlords still dumping this balance on my rent due portal? The supervisor responded saying “If your landlords are coming after you for the money they owed us, that’s a civil dispute between you and your landlords, and we are not going to get involved nor do anything about that.” [click....]
So after being very rudely and unprofessionally hung up on by their useless supervisor, I called back and emailed back numerous times for additional weeks, and even wasted a bunch of gas traveling all the way down to their office in person. Yet ERAP and their supervisor did nothing but tell me that supposedly my only option is to seek help from Legal Aid Society.
So I called Legal Aid Society and after weeks of calling and emailing the representative who lied and said she was going to take care of this and represent me after investigating the details, suddenly their senior attorney called out of nowhere and said they changed their mind, stating they are not going to represent me unless I get served with “an eviction notice or a 3 day notice to pay or quit” and said it would be a high risk scenario because ConAm (the landlord's corporate umbrella who owns the property) apparently have a lot of corrupt judges in their pocket, and if I somehow lost the court case I would not only be kicked off of section 8 support and never be able to afford anywhere to live in California again. That is besides the fact I would also have a 10 year eviction on record which makes it next to impossible to find another place to rent. I told them I wanted to avoid this escalating into an eviction battle and told them to help me take my corrupt landlords to court because I have a right to an attorney, yet Legal Aid Society discriminated against my disability and left a low-income disabled helpless, and they must now answer for it. This is supposed to be “…liberty and justice for ALL” not “liberty and justice for only the wealthy and privileged.”
Justice is a right, not a privilege and not commodity. The government cannot take away someone’s right to take matters into their own hands and then fail to provide them all the required pieces on the board to play within their little court game BS, otherwise they are not qualified to hold us to their laws in the first place and have no right to interfere with people taking matters into our own hands or defending ourselves from those who are threatening and endangering our survival. All the organizations like Legal Aid Society, Community Law Project, and the Volunteer Lawyer Program, who have all discriminated against my disability and my income by turning me away, are going to be publicly exposed for leaving vulnerable and struggling low-income people with disabilities helpless.
There is no contract and therefore no obligation to pay them is imaginary debt that they’ve generated on a computer. If they had a problem with ERAP then they should of taken ERAP to court, not come after struggling and disabled me. The longer this drags on, the more invalid late fees are piled on inflicting upon my credit score, and the more worried I’m becoming that these corrupt scumlords will issue a 3-day-pay-or-quit notice.
I’ve been told there are countless other families here in California that are suffering through this very same overpayment problem right now, to the point where these problem have even been featured live on news media outlets. I am writing this seeking whatever kind of help I can get, cause this is absurd.
Please and thank you...
