As requested: Paula Abdul claims a 1992 plane crash took her out of the spotlight. The NTSB has no record of it ever happening.

2020.09.17 17:45 ketchupsunshine As requested: Paula Abdul claims a 1992 plane crash took her out of the spotlight. The NTSB has no record of it ever happening.

On the Paula Abdul post a couple weeks ago, I commented that I had a write-up that was almost ready to go. This goes far more in depth than that post and was heavily requested so hopefully it does not get removed this time.
In July I saw this comment and decided to look up the plane crash story, expecting it to be easily explainable one way or another. But instead I wound up with differing accounts from Paula Abdul herself, articles claiming she was lying, and lots of random gossip. So I figured I’d try to piece it together myself.
The story goes like this:
In 1992 1, Paula Abdul was flying from a performance in St. Louis to Denver while on her Under My Spell Tour (sometimes called the “Spellbound” tour, the name of the album she was promoting at this time). Then, over a cornfield in Iowa, Abdul in 2019 said the following took place:
“It all happened when I boarded a seven-seater plane and an hour into the flight one of the engines blew up and the right wing caught fire and everything went black...I woke up in the hospital only to find that I had crushed my cervical spine, leaving me partially paralyzed.”
She also stated that she underwent 15 spinal surgeries as a result of her injuries both from this and prior incidents.
But 2019 was not the first time she told this story. According to Abdul in 2005, she took one day off and she continued to perform. The 2005 account mostly matched her earliest mention of the accident in 2003. Then, in 2019, she described waking up in the hospital, partially paralyzed. The story changes in bits every time, and there is no documented mention of it at all before Abdul’s 2003 NBC interview. It’s stranger the more you read about it, and there don’t seem to be concrete answers.
What we do know for sure is that Paula Abdul’s career took a hit shortly after the time she claims the crash took place. Abdul’s next era following Spellbound, Head Over Heels, was her worst selling release. She was divorced twice between 1994 and 1998. Between her Spellbound era and about 1996, Abdul seemed to stay out of the spotlight. Part of this was due to her seeking treatment for her bulimia in 1994, which came with rumors that she was being treated for opioid addiction at the same time. Her career and personal life seemed to have gone downhill after her Under Your Spell tour, and it’s debated whether this was because of her plane crash, or whether the plane crash was invented to sweep this under the rug.

Inconsistencies:

There are a few aspects of Abdul’s story that are pointed to as proof that she is lying.
Dates:
Abdul claims to have performed in St. Louis before the fateful flight, heading to Denver, and to have boarded immediately following this performance. Her own website does not list a St. Louis tour date (although there is a date for Greenwood Village, near Denver, on June 10, 1992). The Wikipedia page for the tour uses the same dates as Abdul’s website. This has been used by some theorists as proof that the whole story is fabricated, since it gives the appearance that there wouldn’t have been a St. Louis to Denver flight at all. However, while Abdul’s own website lacks any mention of these dates, there is some evidence she may have flown from St. Louis to Denver between June 19 and June 22, 1992. 2 Rich Juzwiak at Jezebel dug up records that give us a possible date for the alleged crash. The Jezebel article cites a St. Louis Post Dispatch article from June 21, 1992, talking about a Paula Abdul concert the previous Friday at the Riverport Ampitheater. This sets a date of June 19, 1992 for St. Louis. The same Jezebel article also cites an Entertainment Weekly article from September 25, 1992, which refers to Abdul performing a show at the Fiddler’s Green Amphitheatre in a suburb of Denver on June 22. Abdul’s website lists no shows between the June 10 show in Greenwood Village and the June 23 show in Seattle. This means that there is a gap that these other two shows fit into, although it is odd they aren’t listed as part of the tour despite being part of the tour.
EDIT: As referenced in footnote 2, the Jezebel article had an edit claiming that a reader had found a Kansas City Star article listing a June 20, 1992 date at the Sandstone Ampitheater in Bonner Springs, outside of Kansas City. I couldn't find this as I was writing, but u/bookdrops dug up this Springfield News-Leader article from June 19, 1992 that references the same June 20 date at the Sandstone Ampitheater. This means that there was a date between the St. Louis and Denver shows that have been found, and to me this rules out there being a St. Louis to Denver flight at all. She could have mistaken Kansas City for St. Louis or misremembered, but her stated flight path doesn't seem to have happened.
Possible drug addiction:
Abdul’s 2009 Ladies Home Journal interview describes her spending Thanksgiving 2008 weaning herself off of a painkiller addiction:
The rumors that her sometimes-bizarre behavior was fueled by drugs just may have been true. Abdul was taking heavy-duty pain killers, though she claims she never shot an Idol episode under the influence. But last Thanksgiving, determined to overcome her habit, she checked into the La Costa Resort and Spa, in Carlsbad, California, to wean herself off her medications in one fell swoop. "I could have killed myself.... Withdrawal -- it's the worst thing," she says. "I was freezing cold, then sweating hot, then chattering and in so much pain, it was excruciating. But at my very core, I did not like existing the way I had been.”
Fans and tabloids during Abdul’s run as an American Idol judge often commented on her strange behavior, although she was quick to explain it away. The LHJ interview had direct quotes from her talking about her struggle with drug addiction.
...And then Paula Abdul went on record saying she had never said those things. In fact, according to her, she has never even been drunk. Abdul does not seem to have refuted that she went to a place called La Costa in Carlsbad, California, but she was adamant that it was just a normal spa and she had been there for only three days. While there is a rehab center in Carlsbad called La Costa, the article refers to “La Costa Resort and Spa”, which is an actual resort and spa.
Despite Abdul’s denials, there is still rampant speculation that she is or was addicted to painkillers. There’s certainly no clear-cut evidence proving she was ever an addict, but it’s also nearly impossible to disprove something. Especially when there is so much circumstantial evidence, such as her “strange” behavior that the tabloids latched onto.
Worth noting for this point is the fact that Abdul has consistently been open about her diagnosis with Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, an incredibly painful condition. This, in conjunction with her (also consistent) story about a cheerleading accident in high school followed by several smaller car accidents over the years, means that Paula Abdul already has a pretty good reason to be using painkillers. RSD and any severe chronic pain can sometimes also cause people to seem “spacey” or “loopy”, which could also explain why so many people thought she was acting strange during the time she was on American Idol.
Crash records:
The strongest piece of evidence cited by those who believe Paula Abdul is lying is the lack of evidence. There seems to be no record of this crash ever having happened. Her tour ran from October 1991 to August 1992 and despite having searched accident records 3 for that timespan I have been unable to find any record of this crash. I’ll admit to not being knowledgeable about aviation records, but it also seems telling that no one else has been able to find these records either. Abdul has denounced those who doubt her claims and while I can’t speak definitively, I would think she or her publicist would have pointed to an NTSB report if there was one.
Additionally, Abdul has been quoted several times as saying the plane landed in a cornfield in Iowa. This doesn’t fit with her claim that the flight was from St. Louis to Denver. The flight she claims to have taken is pretty much straight west, and crashing in Iowa would require a significant detour north. Not impossible, but certainly implausible at least from a layman’s understanding of air travel.
There is an NTSB report for an eight seater (not seven) plane crashing into a field in Nebraska (not Iowa), a full month before the Under My Spell tour began. It also seems to have taken off in Nebraska with an intended destination elsewhere in Nebraska, rather than going to either St. Louis or Denver, and it crashed shortly after takeoff rather than the claimed forty minutes to an hour into the flight. I cannot find any news about what Abdul would’ve been doing in Nebraska in September 1991, so I don’t believe this is the accident. There is also a record of an accident in Englewood, Colorado on June 10, 1992. Paula Abdul had a concert in nearby Greenwood Village on the same day, but the description of the plane and accident do not match her story at all. These two are the only records that I have seen that match any part of her story, and neither is a good fit.

Theories:

Theory 1: Paula Abdul was actually in some sort of incident on a plane in 1992, but has embellished what happened and this is why no one has been able to track down records of the event. The most common theory in this camp is that the plane experienced some turbulence, she wasn’t wearing her seatbelt, and she experienced an injury. This possibly compounded with previous injuries (such as the cheerleading accident she often mentions in conjunction with the plane crash story) and caused severe harm, but the plane did not crash. There’s a lot of overlap between this theory and the others, and how much overlap exists between theories depends on who you ask.
Theory 2: Paula Abdul was not in any aviation accidents in 1992 and she is using this story to cover up painkiller use and/or her extended absence from the limelight before her American Idol job.
One of these theories revolves around the idea that Paula invented the plane crash in 2003, after regaining the limelight as an American Idol judge, to give herself an excuse for falling out of the public eye and to distract from the downturn in her career and personal life during this period. The other, more popular theory, is that she used the plane crash as an excuse to either explain away her loopy behavior during her American Idol years as non-drug related (if you believe 2005 USA Today “I have never been addicted to anything” Paula Abdul) or to excuse it as being caused by medication prescribed to her for her injuries.
Theory 3: Paula Abdul is telling the truth about being in a crash and her story was brought into doubt due to some unfortunate gaps in information, such as the NTSB records being incomplete/the accident not being reported at all, her own choice to keep quiet for an extended period of time, and miscommunications about whether or not she was using pain medication. There is enough room for the basic story to be true. Admittedly, the story has changed so much that at least some versions will be lies even if one version was the truth. If this is the case I will certainly apologize for fueling speculation otherwise...but I would consider this the least likely option.

Conclusion/discussion:

Regardless of whatever the actual story is regarding the plane crash, it’s pretty clear that Paula Abdul struggles with chronic pain and I do not intend to make light of this at all or to shame her if she has struggled with addiction. It’s just very strange that there is no proof of this event ever happening. Did Paula Abdul get injured on a plane in 1992? Was she covering for a painkiller addiction, and was that part of why she went to rehab in 1994? Was she covering for being out of the spotlight? Is Paula Abdul actually sober like she claims, and is her strange behavior actually just her being Paula Abdul rather than drugs or alcohol? Was this a ploy for attention that ripped off of Gloria Estefan’s accident? Why did it take eleven years after the alleged accident for there to be a single documented mention of it? I’m very curious what everyone else thinks about this case.
My personal theory (which is based as much on gut feelings as it is on actual information, since the info is so spotty) is that she was on a plane during the Under My Spell tour, wasn’t wearing a seatbelt, and was injured when the plane experienced turbulence mid-flight. This compounded her existing spinal injuries and her condition deteriorated for several years until around 1994 her health problems prevented her from working. She took a break from the limelight to recover, came back for American Idol, and decided to embellish her story to garner sympathy and distract from the other issues (the relative commercial failure of Head Over Heels, her divorces) that contributed to her break. I’m unsure on whether or not she had an addiction to painkillers but I lean towards “no”. Her story of using alternative medicine in response to her injuries from the crash partially convinced me that the strange behavior people point to as proof of her being on drugs is actually just her being herself. She seems like a bit of an odd duck.

Footnotes:

1 Some articles list 1993 as the date of the crash, including some quotes from Abdul herself, but in the grand scheme of things this did not seem particularly significant. The tour she mentions ran from 1991 to 1992, and most articles state 1992. Because of this I am assuming that this is a mistake rather than an actual lie. Specifically the 2009 Ladies Home Journal interview says she was in a car accident in 1992 that caused a neck injury, and places the plane crash in 1993. This is the closest thing to a “contradictory” date I have seen but it also is not a quote from Paula Abdul herself. Make of this what you will.
2 According to an edit in the Jezebel story, there was a Kansas City Star article claiming Abdul had performed in Kansas City on June 20, 1992, which would basically rule out a St. Louis to Denver flight. However, I’ve tried searching and can’t find this article. If anyone is able to find it I’d be happy to edit it in, but I’m not including information I can’t verify. EDIT: Link to confirmation of Sandstone Amphitheater concert, so there is now proof of this and I have edited the post accordingly.
3 This specific link has a disclaimer that records have only been natively uploaded since 1996. So although there are pre-1996 records available on this site, there is no guarantee that these records are complete. The other link provided does not contain the same disclaimer and has far more complete records, but I have no way to verify that they are 100% complete.

2020.09.17 09:22 KakapoJustice Just Another Hysterical Woman

I'm just another hysterical woman.
In October of 2019, life was good. Great even. My husband and I had moved to Las Vegas from Chicago in the summer of 2018 for my job. We purchased a lovely home and started renovating. I was loving my job and my husband had just left for a 6 month stint cheffing in Honolulu. I was on a fitness kick, running 4-7 miles daily, climbing mountains in the desert on weekends. And then 2020. In January, my running stamina suddenly declined, my body was aching constantly, my hands were going numb. Then one morning I woke up and just had that feeling. Something was wrong. I was dizzy, freezing, shaking and my whole body was tingling. Now we are not rich people by any means, and I was not about to pay $1000s for an ER visit unless absolutely necessary, so I take advantage of the free video doctor service through my insurance. Go to the ER he says. Ugh. I split the difference and go to Urgent Care. Check -in lady takes one look at me and immediately calls someone over who asks what's wrong. "My whole body is tingly and I.." "Ma'am we can't help you here you need to go to the emergency room." Sigh. Fine. ER takes vitals, all normal. Doctor gives me the look I would soon become all too familiar with. "Ma'am do you suffer from anxiety? Have you ever had a panic attack?" I'm surprised by the question but tell him yeah actually, and this isn't a panic attack. He tells me to just try to relax, they'll run bloodwork "just in case." I'm left to sit and wait for the next hour pondering what the hell he meant by "just in case." Doctor returns with a nurse and a very confused look and tells me my phosphorus is critically low. He says that is extremely unusual. Before I can ask how that can happen, he's paged and apologizes and says he will be right back. Nurse gives me phosphorus, doctor never returns, I'm sent on my way and told to follow up with my primary care. I do. He prescribes an antidepressant. I push him about the pain in my hands as it was rapidly getting worse. He interrupts me every time I try to speak. I manage to finally explain my family history. I tell him my mom had back surgery at 22 because her discs fused together. That she's had heart surgeries for unexplained arrhythmias. That her fingers are twisted and she has been in pain every day since her 20s. Her body has tried to kill her multiple times, blood clots in her lungs, acute epiglotitis so severe she couldn't breath. She's been to more doctors than I can count, always the same thing. Seems autoimmune, but your bloodwork is normal. 40 years, and probably as many specialists later she's given the diagnosis of seronegative rheumatoid arthritis. I tell him my older sister, 16 years my senior, required a full hip replacement by age 30. That her health had been declining for years. But her blood work was normal. Until this year when suddenly it wasn't. Her lungs were scarred and filled with fluid. Her kidney function was less than half, in fact, every single organ was affect. MRI revealed lesions on her brain and spine. Unfortunately, her organs are so damaged she can't take most medications. I explain how they both said they felt the illness began after their first pregnancies, so I did not have children. My 20s and the first half of my 30s came and went with no signs of issues (so I thought at the time, looking back there were many.) We thought I had lucked out of "the mystery disease." Doctor orders an ANA panel. It comes back negative. He refers me to a rheumatologist to rule out seronegative rheumatoid arthritis. I meet the rheumatologist in mid March. "So what's going on?" I begin to explain and he interrupts me,"your ANA was negative." I tell him "I'm aware but my hands.." He interrupts again and asks to see them. He's quiet. He pokes at my fingers a bit and asks if I ever get a rash from the sun. I do. He orders x-rays, confirms a diagnosis of seronegative rheumatoid arthritis, and starts methotrexate. Right about this time, Covid-19 hits hard. My husband jumps on a plane home while he still can. I can see his look confusion and concern. He left his happy, active, overly ambitious, silly wife, and came back to a exhausted, hobbling, sick one. My joint pain was increasing and the methotrexate side effects were intensifying with every dose. Bill comes from phosphorus incident. $1400. Husband starts making bankruptcy jokes. After a month they become unbearable and I return to the rheumatologist. I can see he's visibly annoyed. "What you're feeling sick or something?? We'll try something else." He prescribes prednisone, leflunomide, amlodipine, celebrex, and gabapentin. He asked if I need a stronger painkiller, I remind him I'm allergic to opioids. He offers tramadol, and says it's not and opoid. Sure I say. I google it. It is. Never mind. My condition worsens and I take a leave from work. I tell my boss I think maybe just a month, and I should be back. April. Husband's job becomes a casualty of the pandemic. I'm still unable to work. Bills start going on credit cards. May. June. Condition worsens. Develop butterfly rash. I ask about lupus. "Your ANA is negative." Rhum prescribes Cimzia to add to my current meds. Insurance denies it. 2 failed appeals later, he changes it to Humira. Insurance denies it. He files an appeal. July. August. Condition improves! Inflammation is down, and I'm moving around a lot better. Insurance finally approves Humira, but has to come from their mail order pharmacy and will take a while. Fine. After all, I'm feeling pretty good other than extreme fatigue. My doctor prescribes modafinil. I have a few days I almost feel like my old self, so I call my boss and tell him I'll be back September 1st. I don't even make it a week. I wake up that Saturday and my whole body hurts, the left side of my body is numb, my speech is slurred, and my muscles are spasming. I drag myself to the couch and take my fist full of pills. I can't breath deeply. I text my 3 best friends, mom, and sister that I love them and wake up husband. He looks at me and says "ER now." Nooo. I talk him into the trusty video doctor. He echoes my husband's sentiment. I express my reluctance because they'll just say it's anxiety. He assured me no one would think that based on my physical symptoms. To the ER we go. The doctor quickly determines I didn't have a stroke (duh.) My husband tries to explain what's happening. ER doc says "your blood pressure is really high and this sounds like anxiety. Here's some IV ativan and a RX for Xanax, go home and relax." I cry in frustration. It's labor day weekend, and I know I have no shot at getting a hold of either of my doctors until Tuesday. I go home and try to rest. Tuesday comes and we get a rush appointment for the next day with my primary care doctor. My rheumatologist were told is on vacation. That morning is the worst I've ever felt and my husband tries to get me to just go to the ER. I convince him we should just wait to see my doctor. Doctor sends me to ER with a rush MRI order in hand. ER does a CT scan of my head. It comes back clear so they admit me to hospital for further neurological testing. My husband isn't allowed in because of the pandemic. I'm not thrilled by this since my speech is still slurred, but there's nothing to be done. Nurse says to get some sleep, tests in the morning. 1:30am I'm shaken awake by a small woman. "WHAT KIND OF CANNABIS DO YOU USE????" It takes me a second to come to and realize what she's asking. CBD oil and THC gummies mostly I tell her. She scampers away. I lay there wondering why I was woken up for that. I assume my tox screen is back, but I also know it's on file that I have a medical card. Whatever I think and go back to sleep. 30 min later I'm shaken awake again. Small woman is back with nurse "THE DOCTOR NEEDS TO KNOW RIGHT NOW WHY YOU HAVE BENZOS IN YOUR SYSTEM AND WHY YOU ARE USING CANNABIS." Are you kidding me. I explain I'm allergic to most painkillers, and therefore have a medical card I use for pain management. As for the benzos, 1. Your ER gave me Ativan like 5 hours ago, 2. I have a Xanax RX which you actually typed in the computer when I gave you my list of drugs earlier. "Ohhhhhh right! That makes sense." They leave. Now I'm just kind of pissed. Before I can fall asleep again, the doctor comes in. He grills me again about tox screen, and asks to see me current meds. I take so many I always keep a typed sheet of them, that also contains basic info about my diagnoses, family history, current doctors info etc. I hand him the sheet and he scans it and abruptly asks "wait so when was the last time you saw your neurologist?" I look at him confused and tell him I've never seen one. "Then who diagnosed you??" "My rheumatologist?" I say. He gives an arrogant snort, "yeah, rheumatologists don't diagnose MS." I realize he hasn't read the sheet at all, he just saw the word MS in my family history ( my sister and cousin both have it.) "I don't have MS, I have rheumatoid arthritis. My SISTER has MS." "Oh. Ok. " he says and leaves. One more frustration cry and a Facebook rant about lack of compassion or listening in healthcare later I fall back asleep. 2:30am I'm woken again for blood work. 4 am awoken again by the nurse. The CNA begins hooking me up to a heart monitor. Nurse explains that they're not sure why, but somehow from my 7pm bloodwork and this set, my potassium level dropped from a normal 4.1, to a critical 2.9 so they need to monitor for cardiac arrest until they can get my levels back up. Once you here the words "cardiac arrest," sleeping plans tend to fail. After 6 bags of potassium, my speech begins to recover. They send me for an MRI/MRA and a neck ultrasound. I notice they aren't doing a contrast like my primary had requested so I ask about it. The tech says he's not sure why, just says MRI to rule out stroke. I explain stroke was ruled out days ago and try to explain the situation. He interrupts and says to talk to Dr, he just does the tests. Fine. The one good thing was the day shift has brought me nurse Flo who is a feisty little angel from heaven. She helps me through one my insane hot flashes and sneaks me a small cup of regular coffee. Around 10 am she says my test results are back and the doctor will be over shortly to discuss. Around 12pm she pops in to ask if doc has been by. He has not. I asked her if she knew why my potassium level crashed. Said no but to ask the doctor.She says she'll page him. 3pm passes and again she checks. Still no doctor. She's clearly also frustrated by this. She checks the computer to see if any orders have been given. Nothing. She tells me to act surprised because she's not technically allowed to give results, but my tests were all normal so I'll probably be discharged soon. "So they're not going to look at the potassium thing?". "Doesn't look like it. I'm going to page again." she says and leaves. At this point, I start to breakdown. I'm alone, scared, getting no answers, stuck in very high risk environment for autoimmune patients, and taking up a hospital bed someone may need. I'm sure this is costing a fortune. 4pm. 5pm. I text a frustrated scared rant to my husband. He calls me an overly dramatic petulant child.I cry. 6pm still in tears I take off my gown and get dressed, I'm removing my heart monitor when CNA walks in for vitals. He asks what's wrong and I apologize for being emotional and explain my frustration. He takes my BP 170/105. He goes to get Flo. She comes immediately and sits and listens to me. Agreed the situation has been ridiculous, and says she's just going to go upstairs and get him herself. A few min later she pops in to say he'll be right down. At 7:30pm it became clear he had left. No instructions were left. I ask Flo to remove my IV, and that I was leaving. She brought me the paper to sign, teared up and gave me hug. "I'm so so sorry." She said she wasn't supposed to, but printed all my labs and tests results to take with me. Even day since I've felt worse. Saw my primary again Monday. He's ordered thyroid tests. Again. They'll come back negative. I saw my rheumatologist yesterday, he told me that's a problem for an endocrinologist, not him, come back in a month. Asked if could be autoimmune related. "Your ANA is negative, you are probably sick because you take supplements." I take a multivitamin and vitamin d. He told me stop being anxious. Sure, I'm a 35 yr old woman scared of losing her career, facing bankruptcy, who's body is hellbent on killing her in her sleep and yet her doctors don't seem to care even a little. Going to bed every night not sure you're going to wake up is really something. To date, no one has been able to tell me why I have electrolyte crashes, or why my leg muscles randomly stop working. Or why my tongue is covered in sores. Or why my kidney feels is about to explode. Or why my muscles jerk, my face twitches, and yeah my whole left side is still numb. My feet and hands are so swollen I can't walk or hold a drinking glass. I collapsed in a chair in the backyard this morning. My husband had to carry me inside. I cry to him, but can tell he's sick of it. Told me my hospital rant on FB made me sound insane and maybe I should just take a Xanax. I am so very alone. Sometimes I feel my eyes close and I'm sure I'm dying. I'm honestly surprised when my eyes open every morning. The pain is getting so bad, I'm starting to wish they wouldn't.
It's probably just anxiety. After all, I'm just another hysterical woman with a negative ANA.

2020.09.11 17:14 Sanity0004 First time viewing The Challenge as a Big Brother/Survivor fan, Part 10(Battle of the Bloodlines)

So my run through of the seasons continues, this time with Battle of the Bloodlines. I put a TL:DR or overall thoughts down at the bottom if you don't want to go through each episode. Check my posting history if you want to check out the past seasons I've been through so far.
Thanks for reading these, they're fun to make and make going through the seasons more enjoyable.
EP 1:
I thought Camila was short, but she seems a head taller than her sister. Damn
Not surprised Jenna is back.
I feel like if they were going for a season of bloodlines they could have tried for more vets or big names from the challenge to at least use it as an excuse to get some people back. It seems like they went the easiest route possible and got half of the previous season and some rookies and a whole bunch of pointless add ons.
I'm really worried I'm not going to like how this show changes moving forward... lol
Fucking Johnny and his god damn speeches
Oh, I didn't even recognize Kellyanne.
Damn, the son is coming up and they're still just drinking and hanging out
"Expect the most maniacal twists" after literally the first thing resembling a twist ever happens
Why were we robbed of Cohutta and Kellyanne, or even Nany on Exes 2, rather than fucking Bananas
Caught a weird angle on Christina and really thought they snuck Casey on the season for a second.
I really never understand the people that come on here and literally think they can openly cheat. Like God damn, how do you have anyone trust you if you think you can get away with it on a show let alone real life?
Guy who is cheating says they didn't hook up, girl who doesn't care says they did lol
Coming in and throwing out shit like "typical woman move" is definitely the way to come in as rookies lol
He literally has nothing to say
Angry drunk casting strikes again
Imagine coming in this game with a family member as a teammate and going out for fighting with the same family member lmao
Wait...is this the house from Seasons? Or another season? I recognize those stairs that Sam got pushed down right beside of!
He didn't hit you Shane, but I'm preeeetty sure you hit him a few times.
THEY get the clear? Pffft production is so damn wishy washy
So you thought Jenna being worthless was so entertaining you thought it a great idea to bring her just as useless cousin on with her. Great.
Rules must be stopping them from collecting water from the moat that has collected around the hill lol Just fall over and go "Oops, I must have picked up a little extra."
Leroy even mad at his damn sibling!
God damn, Johnny is murdering this.
Oh no people may be trying to come for Johnny? Unfair! lol
I seriously can't take the cartoon drawing on Nicole that she calls makeup.
Seems weird to have male and female days when there is multiple teams with both male or both female. If it's a female day do the all guy teams not even try because it doesn't matter? I'm confused? This seems dumb.
Having the rookie make a speech about putting someone up because they're a rookie? lol seems smart
Vince starting shit lol
EP 2:
I'm only just starting episode 2 and I think I hate this season. This may be my least favorite cast from the jump.
Uhhhh, did Cara just give a Hand Job to some RUTO random, WHILE SHE'S DATING ABRAM?!?! What in the shit Cara?!?! Cara just plummeted in my mind. Eeeesh
Every time I see Jenna and Brianna I suddenly get struck with a wave disgruntlement.
I hate this cast.
Starting off early with the eating challenges. I'm ok with this.
Interesting that they chose to do this role/position aspect randomly. Doesn't usually seem like their thing.
It'd be weird to have the snake cuddling around with you, but I honestly can't see being all that freaked out about it. The bugs definitely has the worst end of the bargain.
How are they possibly going to determine the worse out of this lmao first to give up?
Eh, some people didn't do near as bad as I thought. Kellyanne seemed to struggle going in but looked to blow it away.
Jenna and Brianna continue to prove their worthlessness.
Again, don't understand the discrepency between the girl/guy days. Could the girls literally have just not tried because they assumed it was a guy's day? This seems so dumb.
Wow, Kelleyanne looked like she killed it. Shocked she was at the bottom of guy teams.
With the way Cara was orchestrating the helping of Cohutta last episode I'm assuming Johnny is going in against Cohutta? Maybe I shouldn't get my hopes up.
Oh, I guess she's just going to Cohutta and seeing who they want.
Ugh, I hate this fuckin' cast. These twins just seem like all talk. Notice they get all snappy with Cara, but even though it was Cohutta that called them out they don't go to him at all?
Awe, Cara has Diem on her arm.
Nany just blowing up Cara's spot. So I'm assuming Cara was thinking there was no cameras in the bus and then suddenly Johnny has a gopro and suddenly Thomas needs to go?
God damn. Nany's sister looks like a damn cartoon character with her makeup.
I feel like Aneesa is trying to get Jenna/Brianna to quit lol "She's not even cute!"
Again, why. Why the fuck was Jenna brought back and why the fuck did they think her trainwreck cousin was worth bringing on with her?
I agree with Cohutta, these people are insanely crazy. Fucking hell.
I feel like Cohutta is doing terribely with this Elim. He's not even trying for the ball. Once he tackles him he just wraps him up and sits there.
Wait wait wait wait. Someone just talked about wanting to quit and only staying for their cousin and you're going to switch up teams to where she has no motivation to stay? What?!
EP 3:
Ok, so they're doing Survivor style swaps. Teams of two now swapping to two big teams. I'm ok with this.
As much as I hate Johnny, Cara is smart to grab Johnny first.
Cara's cousin is looking at this much smarter. It's more about saddling your team with the worse people than it is about picking the best.
Cara's team is getting fucked right now with these picks lmao Candice, Brianna, AND Aneesa's family member. That team is fucked. Was Johnny not trying to help with the picks at all? I can't imagine he'd be quiet.
I'm loving the recycling of challenges from the last couple seasons.
I was about to ask why Cara looked like the least secure person to jump but then I remembered she has a height fear.
Did they literally get Candice to walk off the challenge and directly in to a confessional? lol They wanted to get the shot with the blood.
I like this voting mechanic. That's gonna be rough.
Nany just randomly voting Aneesa just to be a bitch lol
Camila don't fuck around with her politics. You wanna throw out her name you better
Nany, you didn't vote for Larissa, but you also threw away your vote instead of voting for Jenna. I feel like you took some notes from Johnny. Also, I again bring up the fact that Nany and Johnny were kissing Jenna's ass at the last reunion.
These fuckin' throwaway votes lol Aneesa and Nany are playing bitchy. Not voting against Camila doesn't do shit if you could have voted for the next closest person.
Ok, at least the team came around to their senses. I don't know what they were thinking.
The way it was being determined I thought maybe they were done with the representing aspect in the elim, but calling Camila and Briana up makes me wonder if it will be Camila vs Jenna.
Jenna wins one elimination and wants to be cocky lmao
Hope this Tony dude is ok, but I'm perfectly fine with Shane/Tony going. Bye.
EP 4:
Shocked by Candice and Leroy. The big toe stops you from competing?! I would think it'd be more out of fear of the lip busting open again and getting worse.
Guess I was wrong about the representation aspect in the Elims. Makes it a lot easier to get rid of strong players with just voting in their weaker partner.
I really wish they didn't make so many elims dependant on body weight and size.
Bye Camila. You got screwed. I would have actually liked seeing Camila vs Jenna in the same elim.
"We're going to be here to the final." "Yup, probably." Good enthusiasm Brianna lmao
Oh no, Johnny lost two of his numbers in one night. :c
Eeeeeeesh, Every time I see this Cara/Thomas shit I just cringe super fucking hard. Jesus.
So many damn people cheating on this show. God damn!
I love when people are completely opposite what they show from their confessionals lmao Cory, all over Aneesa, gets told by his partner to shape up. Gets in confessional "She's showing me she's more childish then I thought. I'm gonna put an end to that." -Jennifer Lawrence ok.gif
Nany and Johnny are definitely the cheifs of hooking up and not really letting it effect their games lol
Damn, another pair gone.
Oh shit. Oh SHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIT Huge fucking eye emoji. HOLY FUCKING SHIT.
Abram, coming in to this house right now is fucking hilarious. Cara, just straight awkward.... Oh fuck hahaha
This season JUST GOT INTERSTING!
Oh god the awkwardness. I love it!
Johnny and Nany fucking loving it!
Abram doesn't look like he's in the best of shape though...
Cara shockingly doesn't look happy or excited.
AND Trivia? Best episode ever?!
I feel like they've asked this 60/60/60 angle questions multiple times now. I wonder if it's a trivia staple. I also don't think anyone's gotten it right.
God, I hate so much of this cast. But hey Abram is here and I am so ready for this drama.
5 sides on a stop sign? What?!
Fake face girl of all people winning it for the red team? Shocked.
Damn, I thought trivia was going long but that's the end of the episode?
EP 5:
What a weird place to pick up on an episode. It's like the old half hour episode days.
"I wouldn't lose a day of sleep if Banana's fell off a cliff." I knew I liked Abram.
What....just happened? Did Abram's brother volunteer to go in to Elim? Like...why? The crazy gene is strong with this family.
Cara STILL hanging around with Thomas. What is in this chick's head?!
Kellyanne...
"I don't want to talk to that bitch(aneesa) either." Cory going downhill fast.
You think Aneesa is dumb enough to fall for this obvious politicking kiss ass? You dumb rookies.
Aneesa, don't be stupid.
I'd usually be all for newbies coming in and fucking shit up, but most of these rookies are just annoying as hell.
"You're showing your true colors." Cory, you literally only even talked to Aneesa to get a vote. Who's true colors were seen?
"Nobodies afraid ladies." These twins are nothing but mouth.
I don't even know who this Anthony guy is... lol
Mitch looks like he's about to cry when this Anthony guy votes for him.
It sucks that so many people went home so quicky because I feel like the format didn't get to play out as well as it could have. They're basically forced now to vote for alliances rather than trying to weaken or strengthen teams. Which I think is the best part of the teams/pair aspect of this system.
Johnny is a douchebag, but Dario and Raphy are really not ones to talk lol
TJ just smiling and nodding watching it all. I love TJ lmao
Throwing off his mic. Isn't that like a big no no? I remember everyone jumping in and trying to help Jasmine when she almost did that. Like they didn't care before that, but as soon as she went for her mic everyone jumped on her to stop her.
Them being mad at Aneesa is fucking hilarious. You guys basically dogged her and only talked to her for her vote. Ya'll are idiots.
They're saying the vote was in Aneesas hands, but are they going on the assumption that Mike would have voted for himself? Because even with Aneesa's vote the decision was off by 2?
"Did they ask you if you saw them come out of the bathroom?" God damn Cara. What the shit. This isn't even like the Paula situation, where Yes Paula was shit for what she did, but Ty was pressing that shit constantly and it was weeks of it. Cara was hooking up with this dude like a week in. God damn chick.
I remember thinking early on that Kellyanne seemed more mature and stable than a lot of people on the cast, from seasons like The Island or Ruins, but I feel like she's just gotten more childish and insecure as seasons go on? Aneesa's acting just as stupid in this episode, but Kellyanne just seems kind of like the desperate girl trying to get attention from all the popular guys or something. It's a weird energy.
Jenna not considering things racist? Color me shocked.
"2020's in hindsight." That's definitely not the saying, but god do I wish Kellyanne.
I can't express how hilarious it would be for the twins to lose this lmao
Using only his arms lol, what a dumbass
Oh fuck. His damn foot slips! He fucking had it!
Hahahahaha the bitch twins gave up and tried to wine about the yellow hitting the line lmao
What idiots. All mouth, and then they're mouths get them the loss. Wow
Aneesa, wise the fuck up. Cory just wants your vote at this point.
EP 6:
Oh shit, A Dirty little secret. Ominous episode title!!!!!
Johnny at yoga is pretty funny, not gonna lie
I love Abram's hate for Johnny. He calls it true! "False friendships, selling people up river, just false to your face." So true!
Love the Johnny hate Abram, but you're definitely letting emotion effect the game my dude.
People can't stop talking about Cara/Thom. lol How is she not walking around this house with an ulser with worry of who's going to say something.
I would love nothign more than the guys get to a challenge and TJ just saying "First thing first, Cara we have to address something." I would love nothing more than for TJ just to put the drama out there RIGHT before a challenge.
Its challenges like this that really shows the benefit of vets and experience.
Kellyanne offering to go in? Saves time I guess.
Johnny, I understand not wasting the time in fighting for Nany in deliberations, but to vote for her is just stupid and pointless. You're not gaining any face with people already gunning for you by voting for someone who everyone knows you're aligned with. You're doing yourself a diservice voting for Nany. You're just being stupid.
Like Nany says, throwing his vote away would just back up what he's said for years. He's so loyal isn't he?!
I had genuinely no idea who Anthony was lol
"No matter what I do is the wrong thing." Well yeah, when you do shit that makes no sense but is some weird veiled attempt at supporting your team or garnering favor. You're a dumbass and just as much talk as Raphy and Dario
Who the hell is Cara talking to? Who is Jamie?!?
It's been two seasons of Nany crying over Johnny, yes she still has feelings for him.
He didn't want to make his girlfriend mad hahahahahahaha Johnny's been the one to talk up in the reunions how people hide from cameras to fuck and all this shit. Not voting for a friend is the most hilarious copout that is so empty.
Fuuuuuck, 50 times?! This is a better test of endurance. Damn. I think Nany has this one easily.
Oh god, AND Kellyanne has some kind of chest cold? Good luck chick.
Kellyanne actually won. I'm shocked. The comp having a bell on each side actually made it easier than I thought. I was thinking it was only on one end.
I'm happy to have Nany's sister out of the house lol
Hahaha I love Johnny basically saying "come at me" with this Cara secret. Let this alliance see if it can stick shit out. You have a crazy guy on your house just waiting to blow up lol It's dirty, but I love it.
EP 7:
Cara continuing to just call it flirtation is great.
Wait wait wait. Is Johnny really just having his Cousin go out there and blow it up? You giant pussy! Johnny wanting to keep his hands clean and leaving it up to someone with no fucking sense of even how to talk.
Cara, you suck ass.
Cara just trying to pass it off as trying to get further in the game is really a shit way to handle this lol What a way to try and pass your shitty behavior off as "gameplay"
"I did say that, Johnny." "It's cool Abe!" Johnny not in power is so much better than Johnny in power.
Abram is straight chaos and I love it. It has saved this season.
Aneesa how the hell long have you done these. What weak shit.
Cara needing stuff to be easier for her is hilariously sad.
Abram is insane, and I fucking love it.
I feel like Abram came in with the entire mindset of wanting Cara to win. Him and his partner wanting to go in to elim as soon as they got there, him wanting to get Johnny out and not wanting Cara to team with him. I think his whole mindset was to go in and just help Cara.
Of all the things to NOT have Abram himself being in the elim?! Destroying shit! That would have been hilarious to see.
Fucking "Home wrecker" Wooooooooooow
This elim is fucking awesome.
Abram causes himself to get a bloody nose lmao
Can we just talk about Abram barking like a dog and quietly in the back ground Jenna and Briana are spinning in circles? What?!
Stephen literally can't even get through the tiniest table hahaha
This is not even close. This is so damn sad.
Motivational crazy Abram is my favorite Abram
Oh Cara, come on. You're just now going to talk all about this breaking up shit and saying Abram there is harder for you in the game. Just be real, you're upset your new cuddle buddy left and you're upset Abram came in to make it awkward for you on tv. That being said though, why were you even still with him? lol dude is crazy. But you don't cheat on the dude!
EP 8:
Throwing it for Kellyanne? Johnny wouldn't even talk during deliberation for Nany lmao
At least everyone is clearly talking about how shitty Johnny is with his game. He's dirty, but he talks like he's a damn saint lol
I am continually shocked everytime this Jamie dude shows up on the screen lmao
Wait wait wait wait. CT and Diem's sister are joining the game? I'm about to fucking cry! It seems stupid late in the game to impliment a new team, but it's CT! I don't care!
No colored shirts, probably just an audible on the specific challenge.
I'm going to cry! "Do it for D!" I love CT!
Faith seems more interesting and has more screen presence in like one confessional than half this bloodlines cast lol
I'm pretty sure they just gave Aneesa the "Complete" but she looked like she fell a whole square before the yellow line...
Johnny "helping" lol This is my issue with Johnny. He can't just do shit in the open. He talks so much shit about Wes throwing shit, but he had a reason to and he owned it. You couldn't even talk during deliberations to help Nany and pass it off as saving face with a team, then not wanting to upset your girlfriend. But here you are throwing a competition and sabotaging other players to help a different girl. You're fake as hell and you just hide from it so plainly. It's disgusting.
I never remember who this Jamie guy is but at least he's calling Kellyanne rightfully out.
Hahahah Johnny's face when they get announced the winner. I love it.
Kellyanne fucked up talking shit lol
There's only 3 people that can go in and only one is going to be safe. There's no real reason to be angry at this point.
Jenna and Brianna getting screwed by Johnny too haha Only now realizing it. Johnny promises everyone everything and just watches as they all go out one by one.
Vince out of nowhere with "I have to go by performance today" haha yeah that sounds like Johnny, not owning up to the reason behind their choices. Had an alliance from the jump with Aneesa/Jenna/Nany and basically two of those are getting screwed over and Kellyanne is moved up the pecking order over everyone because of Anthony lmao You people are so damn dumb.
Kellyanne literally can't even defend Anthony hahaha
Oh here we go, Johnny voting against his alliance people to "save face" haha
I'm happy to see everything is finally coming to head for Johnny. Just wish these people weren't so stupid to believe it in the first place.
CT and Faith!!!!!
Kellyanne came back on the show because of Diem passing? That's actually really sweet. Not sure how true it actually is but I'd give her the benefit of the doubt and find it really touching. Kellyanne comes off more authentic than Cara does with her writing Diem on her arm and saying Diem for a trivia answer.
Vince wanting to start shit with CT? lol Dumbass
"I heard me and you would have been competition in the past." "In the past you would have already been knocked out." I love CT
Please tell me Jenna and Brianna are finally gone.
What in the holy hell is Kellyanne doing? lol She blows a huge lead by trying to flip the blocks and worry about their sizes? Jenna just comes in and throws them all up like it's nothing.
Anyone falling for Johnny and his bullshit has no one to blame but themselves. Kellyanne and Anthony just watched Johnny fuck over Nany, why did you think you'd be any different?
EP 9:
Of course Johnny wouldn't like Abram. He's too honest and not willing to believe his bullshit.
"Creepy uncle Vince" This show has a weird track record with Vince's
This is a cool scary challenge lol
Brianna didn't even try. Jesus.
Oh my god these people. Four in a row not trying! What in the hell?! You can't go under fucking water?! Did I miss the description of the task? Were people throwing it to have the fastest swimmers do it?
Abe getting in the box and cracking up. Abram is insane and amazing tv.
Everyone joking about Abram taking the chance to kill Johnny is reallllllly weird?
Some of these comps, I wonder if TJ hates that he even has to be there for them lol They're under water the whole time and TJ just announces when they're out. I'm surprised he's not sitting in a chair under shade having to be reminded to blow the horn.
If you told me at the drawing of teams that Red team would not lose a challenge I would seriously not believe you.
Vince saying he's not worried about it when he's been letting the team down constantly lol Of course he isn't.
Yes! Get rid of Johnny before it goes back to pairs!
Johnny running off to shore up his easy votes like easy. Doesn't give a shit about them, throws them in, but oh wait I can get their vote!
"I just hope you're not just sweet talking me." Jenna, you're a dumbass. He's only talking to you when it comes down to your vote lol Good thing it's Brianna with the vote and not you. She seems to buy less of Johnny's shit.
It's funny how Johnny doesn't play the "rookie" card and "earning stripes" when the rookie and person who's been terrible is tied to his fate.
Fucking Brianna and Jenna. Ya'll are so dumb. You are going to instantly get screwed right after this.
Call em out Abram! Call em out!
I have a feeling Mike is just going to throw this for Cara. Like I said, Abram just seems like he's had the mentality of helping Cara along since he's gotten here.
I get CT again, he was already there....but why Zach? Is it just to show off that he cut his hair off?
Comparing Zach and CT is laughable.
Could you imagine if Johnny was in the pit and was taken out by CT again?!
CT looked like he came in to kill someone in Cutthroat. He looks a lot more relaxed coming in here.
Hahaha Jamie looks like a child in this competition. His head just constantly being pulled against the wall.
Jamie, no matter how often being told, just refuses to use his legs.
"I think I'm nicer than CT" Oh Zach... that's funny. You have two full seasons of screaming at your female team members.
I'm with Aneesa. Hearing "Cuz" and "cousin" this often is just weird.
Of all the eliminations to bring in ringers for, this is kind of a boring one.
There was basically the only real risk left for Cara. I would say they're chalked in for the final at this point if not the win.
EP 10:
(With absolutely zero people paying attention) Vince: "Stupid bar tricks." and tries to blow a ping pong ball in the air, for no apparent reason or directed at anyone? What even is this dude?
Yes, a mini final! I hope this is a new trend of having a mini final every season.
This basically is a final with only 3 teams having any kind of chance at this lmao Aneesa and Jenna and their pairs have jack shit of a chance.
Brianna carrying this weight that looks bigger and heavier than she is! Lmao
"There's rocks on the ground!" Jenna... You say some of the funniest shit unintentionally.
I really wouldn't call struggling with the first leg "gassing out" it's more like they're suddenly struck with the struggle and just need to adjust and get on track. It's not like they're to the point of not being able to walk. They just aren't used to climbing an incline with a bag of weight on their backs.
I'm actually shocked by Cory and Mitch being so far behind everyone.
Ok, I spoke too soon. Vince legit looks gassed lmao
The two teams I didn't think even had a chance are leading hahahha
If I was in some kind of pool or betting for this show Cory would have me so pissed. He is being pathetic for how much you would just be looking at him and thinking he'd be better.
This monkey bar checkpoint would be terrible if you can't do it on first try. If you can't do it the first time, why would you be able to do it a second or third time?
Weird spot to have a girl/guy differential in the comp.
Cara just fucking booking past Bananas lol
The puzzle going to be the equalizer? Aneesa going from first to last?
It's a credit to editing that they somehow turned 15 minutes of Aneesa and Rianna struggling on the monkey bars in to like two whole segments.
Last to first? Holy shit! Wow
The challenge was actually surprising as hell in just about every way. Wow
"It's going to be a hard decision to make." What? How?!
Johnny just doing anything to keep himself out of Elim lol "Jamie sucks, he'd be easy to beat." Definitely not Vince, who's been terrible throughout the season. Not at all!
Good god, if Bananas and Vince scraped by again I would have flipped my shit.
"Knock these egos down." Vince, I didn't expect you to be so self aware...oh you weren't talking about yourself. Nevermind, carry on.
Johnny saying "If I go in and beat Cara, this could be considered one of my best wins I've every had." rings to me like Bananas trying to excuse a coming loss after the fact. Like he loses this elim and then wants to preemptively talk about the competition of Cara as being some huge win knowing damn well he loses. Fucking Johnny, I hate you if this happens. This is such a fucking Johnny move to belittle his loss like it was a big competitor. If you lose it will one hundred percent be because Vince is godawful at everything.
STOP SAYING COUSIN!!!!
It sounds like Johnny is thinking this is a color related puzzle, but I think it's more about the pattern of the lines. I don't think they have it.
Johnny is gone!
The Challenge is starting to get that Survivor problem where some big competitor leaves just short of the final and they started to put in the fire making challenge. Stuff like CT leaving before Free Agents, Johnny/Nany in Exes 2. There's an aspect of lesser competition getting to the end simply because the two big competitors face off leading to the end. Cara vs Johnny in the final would be more interesting than Jenna being in another damn final, or Aneesa and her partner having no chance.
EP 11:
Location change! This seems like a standard at this point...
Oh we checked off someone having to ask where it is. Even for Berlin.
Aneesa talking about getting this far and then failing, and then immediately sabotaging and tearing down her cousin.
They walk in to this hotel and it looks like it'd be the location of an older Real World season lol the weird furniture and colors everywhere.
Aneesa seems completely uninterested in even trying to care about her family member she brought in to this lol
Aneesa's like I'm just here for the money, and Rianna actually seemed to want to get to know her family member and have a good time.
All Aneesa talks about in these confessionals is needing Rianna in the game and to get her head in to it. Rianna's just talking about Aneesa being standoffish and rude. Maybe one of those things would kind of help the other? Like, give Rianna a reason to care to help you win money, or want to work harder for you. You might as well be Zach screaming at the girl.
Another cool competition. This season's cast has been lackluster, but the challenges have been on point.
Aneesa just seems so angry and bitter at this point.
Cory/Mitch blowing it away.
Aneesa sees her final fall away before her eyes.
Oh god. Cara says "Fustrated"...
"Then go to another country!" Aneesa says as if she has a choice...
Wait wait...it's come full circle. Now Aneesa is yelling at someone else to figure out who they are and who they wanna be. I've heard that argument thrown at Aneesa way too much.
Is..Is Aneesa talking about Cara right in front of her, like she's not there and not even a human? lol Aneesa, are you getting to Robin and Katie levels at this point? My brunette crazy drunk crush squad is closed up, sorry.
I definitely think there is a quality of fakeness to Cara, but Aneesa, I think you're a bit off the mark with her accent and how she approaches the game.
Bar Wrestle back, if there was anything Cara could come up short on.
I love that they try to act like an elbow or knee during the bar wrestle is dirty, but continue to keep bar wrestle in the game because of this exact aspect of it.
Saying Jamie won against CT is definitely stretching it lol
Jenna two for two in finals? Underrated great competitor? lol yeah right.
EP 12:
Jenna being the one to talk shit about being in a final... What reality is this?
Franz! A tailor?
City Final!!!!
A part of me would actually love Jenna and Brianna winning this lol
Oh yeah predictions: Cara/Jamie > Cory/Mitch > Jenna/Brianna
Cory and Mitch having to sit on only the second lap lol
Only the guys seem to have issues with this. Maybe 120 is a little much compared to the girls' 60?
"Janky carnival games"
Oh Cara come on. Literally crying from just fake beer?
Cara, you have rookies talking shit about your whining! THIS is how you handle drinking liquid?
Jenna and Brianna are just killing this.
At this point I purely think Aneesa lost her mind with Cara because of how much she had to hear "Cus" and "Cousin".
Jenna and Brianna blowing it away, just waiting for them to blow it away just in time to hear it's only day 1.
Part 1 ughhh. I miss marathon one day style finals. I don't care if it makes the final less suspenseful, or if one team blows it out of the water. I'd rather see people have to fight to not give up entirely.
Oh, is it still one day, just two parts?
EP 13:
I hope they have to swim in these suits.
You can just not eat them and get a 5 minute pinulty? Is that enough time?
Oh no Cara's worst enemy! Liquid!
Good god, Jamie seems like he's about to fill up that damn bucket.
Oh I see, it seems you have to eat everything, there is just a time limit for how long you have to get them done.
Jenna, also with no gag reflex. Zach seems to have a type.
TJ, amazing actor.
This city final has been a complete disappointment.
Just a random 2 mile jog around a track to end it. Did they just run out of ideas for finals?
These number puzzles and tangrams are again just like fire making in survivor. If you come in to these games not practicing these puzzles and learning basic strategies for them, then what are you even doing here? They come up just about every single season. Especially with the likelihood of people coming back multiple times. There's players of Survivor that will practice every single TYPE of puzzle they use and they have a much lower chance of ever even coming back let alone seeing the puzzle again. This show you're likely to come back on and likely to see these puzzle types. Do your damn homework!
I came around on Jenna/Brianna a lot. Happy to see them finish it.
Cara winning just seems tainted lol Like, I wasn't necessarily rooting for her so much as rooting against Johnny and then against the rookies and Jenna.
Reunion:
I hate when any show or episode starts with random teasers for the episode. Just get to it.
Vince starting the episode looking like an idiot.
Nicole looks less like a cartoon character.
At least Jenna is looking at all the elim's positively. Saying she had to make up for the previous season and never going in.
Bananas kissing ass of Jenna again, she must be coming back again...
Rianna looking good on this reunion. She looks a lot different than she was on the show.
Zach has a way of just cutting people off... geesh. Seems like a child that doesn't know how to handle a break up and just cuts, runs and hides.
Cara already crying, and they haven't even gotten to her yet.
Ugh...watching Abram's face while watching this. Ugh this is hard to watch.
Cara sit there and try to be mad or cry. You made your bed.
Abram about to cry.
Quit giving the fucking out that she did this because she was caught up in wanting to win. Fuck that noise.
At least she owns up and goes straight to Abram and says something.
Abram's tattoos just get worse and worse.
What the fuck is she trying to talk about with this being seven seasons about Abram and wanting the season. Way to take a fucking nose dive after starting off great.
This is just gross. Cara started off great, but damn it took a dive.
It just sounds a lot like fucking up and trying to find a lot of reasons to excuse it.
Didn't Thom himself say there was a handjob? lmao Cara, now you're just lying.
I hate Johnny, but I'm with him. Fuck this trying to bring up other peoples shit. Just be honest.
Quit giving her the fucking out that this has any fucking thing to do with the game.
Cara, wow. "Let me count my money. Who sent you home?" Well, that is definitely the way to address it lol
I loathe Johnny, but I agree with him when he says Cara saw she had an added number to her alliance and that was a huge factor of not telling him. She evne said it herself that she knew how he would react. She didn't want him to get DQ'd or possibly get Thom DQ'd. That's why she was upset when Abram wanted her to vote Thom in elim. At that point I do think she was just thinking about numbers and was trying to not talk about it. I don't think her getting with Thom had anything to do with thinking about the game, I hate that that is even suggested, but it definitely changed how she handled her decisions.
Can we literally not even talk about the fact that Johnny wasn't even willing to TRY to talk his team out of voting in Nany, but he was willing to throw an entire challenge to save Anthony/Kellyanne. Seriously not going to talk about that?
It was a game vote, what were you gaining? Everyone knew you were in an alliance with her and no one would care? You gained nothing, quit trying to squirm your way out of it.
Literally holding a trailer hostage to get a hashtag trending lmao
I feel like these reunions completely ignore the more pressing or interesting questions to just go for the direct and simple questions that might spark the most drama. Like not bringing up that Johnny tried to throw a challenge for Kellyanne and didn't mind not saying her name, but wouldn't even speak in defense of Nany at fucking all.
At least we're bringing up how god awful Vince was. Jesus. I'll just say it, Vince is more of a hindrance to the team than Big Easy.
"He purposely threw half of those." Fuuuuuuck out of here Johnny lmao
Good god, don't curse us with that Johnny, I never want to see Vince again. Cory is probably the only person from this season I could bet we see again. Maybe Jamie, but I doubt it.
Johnny, who has won finals with two other partners "This is the best partner I've ever had" haha this dude will literally say anything.
Why torture me at this point with hearing "cousin" more. Why?!
Overall thoughts:
I ended up coming around on this season quite a bit. The first two episodes I had absolutely zero investment. It brought in the worst parts of the previous season and then added half the cast being pointless or throwaways. The season ended up coming around, I think, due to the editing and the building of stories and drama. There wasn't a ton, but what was there was put together pretty well. Not only just the Cara and Abram situation, but also the individual elims, even though I never cared about any of these people, actually had interest and swings. I think the biggest disappointment of the season was the final. I was actually coming along and enjoying the season finally, you give me a "city" final and then it's so boring and bland and has almost nothing to do with the city other than kayaking down a river in the middle of the city and one part being in an abandoned subway. This final was an absolute bummer. It could have had the most interesting and athletic players in it and it would have still been a stail boring ass final. It's sad that the last couple seasons the mini final that they have within the season has been a better race or show of endurance than the actual finals have been.
I miss the long marathon exhaustion inducing finals. These finals are getting really lame. Fuck the winners coming down to times on the combined parts. Make the shit a race. Between the casting as of late, the group of players to continuously return, and the final going more and more down hill I'm really worried my interest and trust in the show is waning. I really hope it isn't so. I know I've heard some good about some seasons coming up, but I just don't see some issues being all that addressed.

2020.08.31 17:55 Cobalt_721 The Alchemist's Toolbox 98: Laila!

A Link to the Index: https://www.reddit.com/AlchemistCodeGL/comments/adzjua/the_alchemists_index/
Before I begin, a big thanks to the people who gave some awards to my last 2 reviews!
Welcome to the 98th Alchemist's Toolbox review!
Today we're heading to Gluttony Foss to take a look at one of Thunder's newest magic users. So without further ado, here's the next unit for review: Laila!
Laila is a Gladiator from Gluttony Foss who focuses on beauty as well as strength. Let's see what she can do as a unit, shall we?
Personal Investment:
I've got Laila at maximum limit breaks with all her jobs mastered (both JEs mastered, unique job enhanced). She's already proven to be a strong pick out of my Thunder magic roster.
Element:
Basic:
Laila is a Thunder unit, which means she's strong against Water and weak against Wind. Compared to a hypothetical Light or Dark unit with the same stats and jobs, she would be better defensively and worse offensively.
Competition:
  • Thunderer Trickster: Since this is Laila's unique job (technically semi-unique since Wilhelm has a Trickster job as well, but he and Laila are different elements and have a little variation to their kits), there's no one to compare to here.
  • Sage/Sage [Monolith]: Comparing to Mages/other Sages, Laila competes with Lucretia, Meily, Rebecca, Vanekis, and Vincent. She beats Lucretia in damage, cast speed, and bulk while losing to her in speed (unless she runs Shadow Step to close the speed gap a little while changing cast speed to a tie), beats Meily, Rebecca, and Vincent outright, and beats Vanekis in everything except speed unless she runs Shadow Step to beat her in speed but lose in cast speed (though it should be noted that Vanekis has access to a better kit due to having a Job+ and also has access to Mia's VCR, which has a very strong Weapon Ability). Factoring in Gates 1-3 of Enlightenment, her comparison to Vincent remains the same, and factoring in all 5 Gates of her Enlightenment, she now loses to Lucretia in bulk, now loses to Meily in damage (unless she runs Magic Up +2 to win in damage but tie in cast speed), her comparison to Rebecca remains the same, and now outright loses to Vanekis in cast speed.
Spy/Spy [Cloud Cover]: Comparing to other Spies, Laila competes with Blitz and Roxanne. She beats Blitz in speed while losing to him everywhere else, and loses to Roxanne in everything except mobility or bulk depending on Roxanne's passive choices. Factoring in Enlightenment, her comparisons remain the same.
Leader Skill:
+30% HP, +30% MAtk, +30% Strike damage, and +10% Water Res. A great Leader Skill for Laila herself, and a solid non-Enlightenment Leader Skill for Thunder magic teams.
Jobs:
Laila's 3 jobs are Thunderer Trickster, Sage, and Spy, with the Monolith JE for Sage and the Cloud Cover JE for Spy.
Thunderer Trickster is a sort of magic usedisruptor hybrid job. It has:
Main Skillset
  • A teleport + single-target Thunder damage skill that lower's the target's CT to 0 and uses the target's MAtk to calculate damage (this skill deals physical Strike damage).
  • A teleport + self-based AoE Thunder jewel drain skill (this skill is considered magic category Magic type "damage").
  • A single-target Thunder damage skill that boosts the user's MAtk (this skill deals magic category Magic type damage).
  • An AoE Thunder damage skill that deals bonus damage to Water enemies (this skill deals magic category Magic type damage).
Sub Skillset
  • A self-based AoE CT boost.
  • A self-heal.
  • A teleport + single-target Thunder damage skill that uses the target's agility to calculate damage (this skill deals physical Strike damage).
Its reactive is a chance to perform a weak self-based AoE Thunder counter that can activate against skills, and its passives boost cast speed while reducing jewel costs and lowering PDef/MDef and boost HP/MAtk respectively.
Sage is a full caster job. It has:
Main Skillset
  • A weak self-based AoE damage skill.
  • An AoE Fire damage skill.
  • An AoE Water damage skill.
  • An AoE Wind damage skill.
  • An AoE Thunder damage skill.
Sub Skillset
  • An AoE Fire damage skill.
  • An AoE Water damage skill.
  • An AoE Wind damage skill.
  • An AoE Thunder damage skill.
  • An AoE skill that inflicts Poison.
Its reactive is a chance to perform a magic counter, and its passive boosts MAtk/hitrate.
Sage [Monolith]: Does the following:
  • Makes Elemental Burst Thunder element and boosts its damage.
  • Moves Mega Spark to the sub skillset to replace Cross Spark.
  • Adds a new AoE Thunder damage skill that deals bonus damage to Water enemies to the main skillset.
Spy is a disruptophysical damage-dealer hybrid job. It has:
Main Skillset
  • An evasion self-buff.
  • A teleport + self-based AoE skill that inflicts Blindness.
  • A teleport + self-based AoE status cure/prevention skill.
  • An AoE Wind damage skill that lowers the targets' Wind Res (this skill deals physical category Magic type damage).
  • A single-target Water damage skill that lowers the target's Water Res (this skill deals physical category Magic type damage).
Sub Skillset
  • A single-target damage skill (this skill deals physical Missile damage).
  • A single-target Fire damage skill that lowers the target's Pierce damage (this skill deals physical typeless damage).
  • A single-target Water damage skill that lowers the target's Slash damage (this skill deals physical typeless damage).
  • A single-target Wind damage skill that lowers the target's Missile damage (this skill deals physical typeless damage).
  • A single-target Thunder damage skill that lowers the target's Strike damage (this skill deals physical typeless damage).
Its reactive is a chance to deal a portion of damage received back to the attacker and heal that amount with a chance to inflict Stop, and its passives boost Move/Jump and boost agility/Dex respectively.
Spy [Cloud Cover] does the following:
  • Adds an extra permanent evasion self-buff to Hazy Shadow.
  • Adds a new melee damage skill that inflicts Stop to the main skillset.
  • Boosts the damage of Windmill Shuriken and causes it to inflict Poison.
  • Adds a boost to Poison damage to Hurricane.
Babel War Art:
Laila's Babel War Art is a melee-range AoE Thunder damage skill that uses the targets' PAtk to calculate damage and lowers the targets' PAtk. This skill deals magic category Strike type damage and is put on the sub skillset of Laila's Thunderer Trickster job.
Stats:
Laila's stats support a fast, somewhat squishy unit with good damage (decent damage on Spy main). All stats are at the usual benchmark (level 75, all jobs mastered, main job enhanced), and Sage main won't be shown since Laila prefers either of her 2 other jobs outside of extremely niche scenarios. Table Key: NP = No Passive, SS = Shining Sunlight, MU2 = Magic Up +2, ShS = Shadow Step
Stat Thunderer Trickster Spy [Cloud Cover]
HP (NP) 1833 1920
HP (SS) 1993 2088
PAtk 208 451
MAtk (NP) 567 267
MAtk (SS) 692 327
MAtk (MU2) 627 296
MAtk (SS + MU2) 753 355
Dex (NP) 262 374
Dex (ShS) 300 429
Agility (NP) 138 150
Agility (ShS) 151 164
Enlightenment:
Laila has the current maximum of 5 Gates of Enlightenment.
  • Her Gate 1 boosts HP, PAtk, MAtk, and agility while leveling, and boosts HP, MAtk, and Luck when maxed.
  • Her Gate 2 boosts PDef, MDef, Crit, and hitrate while leveling, and upgrades Shadow Step to +10% agility, +15% Dex, +10% Poison damage, and +10% Magic damage/+10% Strike damage for each KO (previous effect of +10% agility, +15% Dex, and +10% Poison damage) when maxed.
  • Her Gate 3 boosts HP, Dex, agility, and evasion while leveling, and upgrades her Leader Skill to +30% HP, +30% MAtk, +30% Strike damage, and +10% All defense for Thunder units when maxed.
  • Her Gate 4 boosts HP, PDef, MDef, and hitrate while leveling, and boosts HP, MAtk, Luck, damage against Envy type units, and damage against Sloth type units when maxed.
  • Her Gate 5 boosts HP, PDef, MDef, agility, and Crit while leveling, and boosts the number of uses of Flying Lightning "Emperor" while also causing it to inflict Charm; boosts the damage, AoE, and cast speed of Thor Impulse while also causing it to inflict Paralysis; and boosts the range (can now hit diagonally adjacent squares as well as cardinally adjacent squares) and activation chance (now always activates) of Immobilize Counter while also letting it activate against skills when maxed.
Recommended Enlightenment: Due to the great benefits of her Gates 2 and 5 and the lackluster benefits of her Gate 3, Laila's best Enlightenment setup is 5/5/3/5/5, with an alternative option being level 4 Gate 4 if you want to save Gate 4 and 5 resources.
Enlightenment Stats:
Laila's Enlightenment helps remedy her bulk issues while taking her already solid stats to even better levels. All stats assume level 95 with the recommended Enlightenment setup of 5/5/3/5/5. All other assumptions are the same as the regular stats section. Table Key Changes: ShS -> BR = Beautiful Revolution
Stat Thunderer Trickster Spy [Cloud Cover]
HP (NP) 3349 3481
HP (SS) 3643 3786
PAtk 233 479
MAtk (NP) 715 412
MAtk (SS) 873 503
MAtk (MU2) 791 456
MAtk (SS + MU2) 949 547
Dex (NP) 291 405
Dex (BR) 334 465
Agility (NP) 153 166
Agility (BR) 167 181
Example Builds:
Beautiful Gladiator
  • Main Job: Thunderer Trickster
  • Sub Job: Thunderer Trickster (damage/disruption/support)/Sage [Monolith] (damage)
  • Reactive: Bright Lightning "Star" (damage)/Immobilize Counter {Steady Counterattack} (survivability + disruption)
  • Passive 1: Shining Sunlight
  • Passive 2: High Demon Moon (cast speed + lower jewel costs)/Magic Up +2 (damage)/Flying Ape (mobility)/Shadow Step {Beautiful Revolution} (speed, snowball damage if Gate 2 is maxed)
Laila's unique job build. Sub is a choice between purely damage or a mixture of damage/disruption/support, reactive is a choice between damage and survivability/disruption, and Shining Sunlight is basically mandatory. The last passive can be any of Laila's options depending on your needs. Basic strategy is to hit enemies hard, making use of your skills that run off enemy stats and your disruption capabilities as necessary.
Beautiful Spy
  • Main Job: Spy [Cloud Cover]
  • Sub Job: Spy [Cloud Cover] (disruption)/Thunderer Trickster (damage/disruption/support)
  • Reactive: Immobilize Counter {Steady Counterattack}
  • Passive 1: Shadow Step {Beautiful Revolution}
  • Passive 2: Flying Ape (mobility)/High Demon Moon (cast speed/lower jewel costs)/Shining Sunlight (survivability)
Laila's Spy build. In an interesting twist, Trickster sub can work here since both its damage skills run off enemy stats rather than the user's, which makes it just as good of an option as Spy sub. Immobilize CounteSteady Counterattack is really the only reactive that Laila can make good use of on this build, and Shadow Step/Beautiful Revolution is basically mandatory for the speed. The last passive will generally be Flying Ape for mobility, but depending on your needs and passive besides Magic Up +2 has at least some value. Basic strategy is to use your mobility to get to priority targets and either disrupt or KO them.
My Recommended Build:
I personally recommend the Beautiful Gladiator build since Laila's a great choice for a magic user, but she can easily run her Spy job as well, so feel free to experiment!
Gear Recommendations:
Armor and Accessories: Any HP or agility boosting gear (or MAtk boosting gear on Trickster main), Pretty Supporter (agility, small snowball passive Weapon Ability), Gladiator's Barrette (agility, WA that synergizes perfectly with Laila's Gate 5), Screaming Bullet (All damage, agility)
Trickster has no specific weapon type, so you'll have to rely on accessories there.
Spy: Cursed Kunai - Blood Edge (decent stats, HP, farmable), Demon Bane Kunai (solid stats, agility), Jikunai Satsuki (best overall stats, agility, Quicken), Swift Kunai - Comet (solid stats, Initial jewels)
Memento Recommendations:
Laila's best memento is her own, More Striking than a Lightning Flash. This Memento boosts her HP, MAtk, agility, and Agility Debuff Res, with a Strike damage boost and an additional agility boost at MLB. It has a Vision Ability of a teleport + agility self-buff + self status cure/prevention skill.
Since she's a Gluttony Foss unit, Laila also gets good benefits from A Love so Tender (MAtk, Trickster main only) and Glittering Shard of Triumph (PDef + HP). She also benefits from one of the Group Skills of O My Fair Lion Lady, which boosts her HP and AoE Res.
If you don't have any of those, go for the biggest HP, MAtk (Trickster main), PAtk (Spy main), Dex (Spy main), or agility boost that you can get, prioritizing Gluttony Foss Group Skills.
Futureproofness:
Laila's only update that she's missing from her JP version (besides some universal Spy updates) is her Gate 6.
Overall Asessment:
Laila's a great unit. If you need a good Thunder magic user (or just someone that can exploit high enemy stats), she'll be a great addition to your toolbox.
And that's the review! As always, feedback is greatly appreciated!
Make sure to let me know which of the following units you want me to review next:

2020.08.23 00:51 NamNguyen56 I DON'T LIKE BIDEN (A Handbook for All American Citizens!) I DON'T LIKE BIDEN (A Handbook for All American Citizens!)

I DON'T LIKE BIDEN (A Handbook for All American Citizens!) I DON'T LIKE BIDEN (A Handbook for All American Citizens!)

![img](iyovvyk4vmi51 " I DON'T LIKE BIDEN (A Handbook for All American Citizens!) .📷📷 In the end, former PTT Joe Biden was victorious. The Democrats have officially appointed Biden to represent the campaign against President Trump. Of course, in four decades as a senator and eight years as a vice president, Biden was involved in countless political decisions, big and small, how much success is unknown, but failure or error is infinite. That's why I do NOT like Biden. America cannot be quite good with a president like old Biden, all his life doing wrong, wrong. Biden's deluded mistakes, writing three dictionaries are still not over. Stories related to Vietnam have been discussed many times already. Some of Biden's great tools still tried to twist the ribs of his spine to find a way to justify him not against the Vietnamese refugees, but it seemed that he had not convinced many people. In short: ➥ During the Vietnam War, during the three years as a senator before the VC took the South, old Biden always voted ANTI-all economic and military aid to the RVN, not skipping a single vote to prevent TT Nixon helped the RVN in any way. For the refugees, Mr. Biden has never voted to accept any one cent of the budget to aid the refugees, twice voted against the relief / reception of refugees (April 18, 1975 - May 23, 1975), once without voting for the aid budget (5/6/75), just once signed an innocuous resolution welcoming refugees who have entered the US, are in Guam and Wake (May 8, 1975). That one time was held by Biden's supporters as evidence (only) of Biden supporting refugees. (first) ➥ In addition to that innocuous vote, this man challenges anyone who finds ONE concrete evidence that Biden has supported the RVN and supported Vietnamese refugees throughout his political life. (please do not be confused with later voting in favor of VC). Her attitude and point of view towards China are so much to say that it will probably be the subject of another article. Only Biden has confirmed that \"TC is not a competitor to America (no competitor) but a good friend (good friend) of America\". (2) Because of the limited framework, this article will also be skipped, not to mention the thousands of jokes, wrong words, jokes, stammering. President Trump's Campaign Committee is composing a 'collection' of Biden's most famous gossip, which is welcome by readers, does not laugh and does not eat money. If the ability to make jokes is a necessary ability to be the president, Biden is obvious ... wa-li-fai than 'Hoai Ninh' far (because Hoai Ninh knows his fate does not dare to race with Biden. of the DC party to run for US president). Here, we are only discussing the wrong political decisions or his hat-changing tricks. Is there any wrong place in this article? I would like to ask readers to frankly point out each other, no need to jostle each other. * ⭕️ SUBSIDIES The To Sang group recently released a statement in support of Biden, which read “We need a President from the Democratic Party to maintain good Social Security policies such as Welfare, Food Stamps. v ... v, to help old Vietnamese refugees like us \". Elderly refugees need benefits, not wrong. But supporting Biden is… wrong. Biden for more than 40 years, has always called for cutting benefits, especially SSA old money, including Medicare and Medicaid. In 1995, TNS Biden declared \"When I called for freezing government spending, I wanted to include social security money, ... Medicaid, Medicare, veteran benefits\" (original: \"When I argued that we should freeze federal spending, I meant Social Security as well. I meant Medicare and Medicaid. I meant veterans' benefits ”). (3) ⭕️ TAXES Mr. Biden in a live televised talk at the Poor People's Forum recently solemnly promised to immediately revoke President Trump's tax reduction law. Here are the concrete consequences: ➥ Some of the low-income middle-class populations exempt under Trump's law will have to pay taxes again. ➥ All middle-class people and people with higher incomes will get tax increases again. ➥ All large and small businesses get profit tax increases; ➥ Many large corporations will close their stores again, move overseas to evade taxes; ➥ Unemployment rate will escalate again; ➥ The economy will slow down; ➥ The stock market will slide and pension and old money funds will be lost. (4) [Please review lesson 1: DTC's Tax Reduction Law, December 2017 to see how additional taxes will be paid] (5) ⭕️ VISION A few refugee parrots chew on our side's slogan “Discrimination is one the bad, never good! ”. Biden was very majestic and said President Trump was the most discriminatory president in American history. If Mr. Biden is elected president, he will take this title of discrimination out of the hands of President Trump immediately. Below is the stigma achievement of Biden. In 1974, the new congressman Biden collaborated with TNS Robert Byrd of Virginia [TNS Byrd was one of the great leaders of the DC party in the 1960s and 70s, later discovered to be a secret member of the Ku Klux Klan. , a discriminatory white group specializing in killing blacks], openly opposes the 'busing' policy that requires elementary and secondary school students to go to school on the Golden State bus. This was the federal government's policy to end black and white discrimination in schools at that time, which was strongly opposed by the white people. (6) Recently, during the first TV debate among the DC candidates, TNS Kamala Harris attacked Biden brutally about Biden's white anti-busing stigma, darkening him. apologetic face to face. In 2006, Biden complained, \"You can't go into a 7-11 (Seven Eleven) store to buy anything if you don't speak English with an Indian accent\". One accused statement reflects the stigmatization of Indian descent by the fact that a large number of owners of Seven-Eleven stores in Delaware state are of Indian descent. (7) Surely now that the Indian people are too strong in the US, so find a way to atone, invite the Indian-born Mrs. Harris to join the partnership? In 2007, Biden, when he first heard that Obama was running for president in 2007, said \"Obama is the first African-American presidential candidate, it is also bright and clean, ...\". (8) Imagine Trump saying this! Old Biden patted her chest in the 1960s (when Biden was about 25 years old) once took to the streets to protest with the black people fighting for civil rights with the pastor Martin Luther King. Biden has never been in the streets like that because of the TTDC. 100% lie! (9) Then recently, it emerged that the old man said that the Negro people did not vote for him ... \"you ain't black\"! Quickly helped by TTDC to store it in the closet, not repeat again. Imagine President Trump telling a white man not to vote for him \"you ain't white\"! (ten) Recently, when asked by a black journalist if he had tested the 'cognitive test' to see if his mind was still sane - like President Trump did - Biden said, \"Oh, why should I do that? ? So before interviewing me, did you go to test for drugs in your body? Are you an addict? ”. (11) This sentence is of heavy stigma because everyone knows that many black people are addicted to drugs. ⭕️ CORONA TRANSLATION OFFICE Mr. Biden was against President Trump's measures from the very beginning. Please reiterate some background facts: ➥ January 6, 2020: President Trump told the CDC to warn Americans not to travel to China because of the epidemic there. January 17, 2020: President Trump ordered a strict examination of the health of all people from China through 3 major US airports (then 2 more airports). January 18, 2020: DTCTC announced a new epidemic that has just begun in China and warned Vietnamese people about Vietnam to celebrate Tet. [ https://diendantraichieu.blogspot.com/p/tin-tuc-a.html] ➥ January 21, 2020: a Chinese-American infected first after returning from Wuhan to the US. Both the Senate are fighting about the harassment of President Trump, news about viruses that have not been published, have not been published, nor are anyone reading. January 27, 2020 (3 weeks after President Trump warned Americans not to travel to China, and a dozen days after the VCP warned the Vietnamese!): Mr. Biden praised China for being very innocent and honestly announce the restrained news being translated to the whole world, and affirm that there is no reason not to travel to TC. January 31, 2020: President Trump gives a ban on Chinese tourists from entering the US; for those who have a good reason to enter the United States, or for Chinese-Americans who return to China for Tet and need to return home to America, he makes them subject to a 14-day ban on the palace after entering the US. That same day, he ordered the Department of Health to issue a state of urgency and set up a special committee to deal with the epidemic. That same day, Biden, in a speech given in Iowa, immediately attacked President Trump for his hysterical xenophobia and fearmongering. (12) To be clear, 10 days after the first infected person in the United States and one month before the first American death, President Trump has taken the decision to prevent the Chinese people from entering the US, as a concrete measure to block translation, while old Biden has not seen anything, still worried about praising China. Dr. Fauci, the protagonist responsible for dealing with the epidemic, claims President Trump's early measures have saved hundreds of thousands of American lives. That is, if Biden was the president then the decision to stop would not be issued, the number of people died now was hundreds of thousands higher. This is we have not discussed the story of old Biden lying when accusing President Trump of cutting the CDC budget and the USAID agency, is a local matter. ⭕️ ANTI-POPULATION During the eight years as deputy apostle, Biden thoroughly supported President Obama's immigration deportation policy, showing off his achievements that Obama expelled the most illegal immigrants of all modern American presidents. Now the wind changes, the DC party denounces President Trump's immigrant deportation policy as discrimination, Biden no longer dares to show off his expulsion championship record. The Mexican-born journalist Jorge Ramos asked if Biden had regretted helping President Obama to expel millions of immigrants, he replied very wisely, “Yes, at that time many migrants were deported, but I was just a deputy President \"(verbatim\" I was just a vice president \"). An excuse clearly stated the status of selling the inferior crime of old Biden. Old Biden in recent debates, has once again performed his 'forgetful' talent. When talking about immigration, he aggressively condemned President Trump and asserted that \"we [the Obama / Biden administration] do not lock children in iron cots, we do not segregate families, ...\". Sorry, baby cot was not invented by President Trump, President Clinton or President Bush, but by President Obama, confirmed by a series of images of children in iron cribs at that time. The press has already been published. (13) Also apologize to Mr. Biden, that the family isolation law was not invented by President Trump, but the agreement between Clinton's Attorney General Janet Reno with the court in a 1997 immigration lawsuit, applied. from that time to Bush, then through Obama, to Trump. (14) ⭕️ CUTTING THE POLICE BUDGET In the current riot against the police, the rebels demanded cut off the police budget. Old Biden initially looked down on this gang, speaking he did not accept because the role of the police is still very important. Strongly criticized by the rebels - including the black population and young white radicals whom she desperately needed votes, she changed clothes, called for a part of the police budget to be transferred to communal programs Association and health care help people of color. Shortly thereafter, the National Police Association (with more than 1,000 police organizations across the federation) criticized Biden and supported President Trump, he again decided to withdraw, stating that he did not intend to cut the scene budget. close, just want to transfer money -redirect funds- only. How to transfer money to another target without cutting anything? (15) ⭕️ SUPPORTING FRANCE Old Biden was caught up in the so-called Hyde Amendment - Hyde Amendment, which was approved 40 years ago. This is an amendment whereby the federal State will not pay abortions for women who are receiving Medicaid health insurance for low-income people, called MediCal in California. Old Biden previously supported this amendment, now, obviously very serious crime in the radical DC party. Old Biden struggling not to know how to handle, finally spoke up, now he is against the Amendment Hyde and confessed that he was a big mistake. (16) ⭕️ COMPETITION FOR Gay During nearly 40 years in the Senate, Biden was anti-gay marriage, always upholding family values, defined as a combination of two people of the opposite sex. In 2012, before the height of the struggle of the gay people, Biden changed clothes, loudly supporting the homosexual people and gay marriage. Then blatantly declared \"my whole life, I have fought for homosexual people\". (17) Here, please open brackets to talk about the story, clearly showing the status of old Biden: In 2012, President Obama was re-elected, severely threatened by Governor Romney, the rate of support on both sides was close. President Obama changed his strategy, wanted to attract gay groups, met the advisory board, made a strategy to support same-sex marriage that he and Biden were both against, to get votes from this group. According to the plan, a week later, he will hold a press conference to announce the new policy. Biden old tricks, the day after the press conference announced he supported gay marriage. People who rub the mahjong call this a story of 'spreading your upper hand'. President Obama was angry, called Biden to adjust for a match, chased Mr. Biden, changed other deputy candidates, then Biden apologized to President Obama. (18) SEX OF SEX The latest story, heavenly but was quickly buried under 10 yards by our side: sexually harassing Ms. Reade, her former assistant. (19) The brutal thing is that while the TTDC and especially the anti-Trump madmen all day long talking about Trump immoral, flattering about 'catching butterflies', Biden is accused of being true. not just impulsive. American politics today are partisan far beyond all rational possibilities. Sen. Kamala Harris, who fiercely beat Judge Kavanaugh outright about his alleged sexual harassment, after Biden was accused of harassment, stated \"I believe you have accused Mr. Biden.\" . However, when Biden invited him to join the partnership, Mrs. Harris was as fresh as a flower and immediately accepted. Another anonymous woman was more frank, almost \"Mr. Biden raped my daughter, I still vote for him\". That's new! What do the refugees have more morality than the sage think? But the champion must be journalist Katha Pollitt wrote in The Nation newspaper: \"Even if Biden boiled and eats a baby, I still vote for him.\" That is worthy of being crazy about the real thing! When did the anti-Trump crazy refugees follow the example? It seemed like bluntly declaring \"Even if Mr. Biden helped the CSBV win, made me lose his country, insulted me, did not allow me to enter the US as a refugee, I still vote for him\". Another question for the elders still embracing the Four Books Ngu Kinh: what do you think about Biden's family morality when his second son caressed and openly lived with his sister-in-law who had just become a widow. father, leaving his wife and three children, but the father, old Biden fully supported? (20) ⭕️ FOREIGN CURRENCY In 1990, Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait. The whole world condemns. President Bush established a huge military force with the participation of nearly one million troops from 35 countries around the world. The US Congressional bicameral voted to allow President Bush to fight. TNS Biden is a rare voice against because it is said that Saddam has hundreds of thousands of extremely friendly Guardians and also has very dangerous chemical weapons for American soldiers. After 9/11, the world believed that Saddam had an arsenal of chemical and biological weapons that threatened the US and the world. President Bush was voted by the bicameral parliament to fight Iraq to eliminate this threat. TNS Biden cheerfully supported. With the discovery that Iraq does not have an arsenal of collective killers, the war is seen as a great mistake because based on the world's false intelligence was deceived by Saddam. TNS Biden then refused, arguing that he was deceived by President Bush, thinking that the US just \"threatened\" to send troops over to protect weapons inspection teams, not to fight for real. In 2010, the New York Times wrote an article, sarcastically asked \"When was the last time PTT Biden true about anything?\" (When was the last time Biden was right about anything?). (21) In 2011, listening to the words of the radical ladies Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice, Samantha Power, President Obama beat Libya and killed President Khaddafi, then ran away, leaving the ambassador to be killed, leaving a chaotic Libya. with half a dozen militant Muslim groups fighting and killing each other for nearly 10 years. President Obama later admitted it was his biggest foreign policy mistake. PTT Biden supported most strongly against Libya and later praised it as a great achievement of Obama. (22). In 2012, the Obama administration was reported to have found Bin Laden, but not 100% sure. President Obama meets with the National Security Council in principle to consult with everyone, but in fact, the way to cover the blanket, push the committee to take responsibility for decision, after success, President Obama beats his chest to show off. If you fail, it will be the committee's decision. President Obama, according to the majority opinion, decided to raid, and it is true that the real Bin Laden, this man was killed. Biden was against the raid to kill Bin Laden because he was afraid of false news that he ran into Pakistan. (23) ⭕️ 'TAKING ONLY' TTDC tries to bring out the image of a serious, mature, honest and honest Biden ... although it is often mistaken, but absolutely honest and virtuous. Isn't that awake? Newsweek magazine, the radical anti-Trump type is dead, recently published a long, disturbing post about Biden. According to Newsweek, Biden's prankster-plagiarism proves that he does not have a vision of leadership, does not have a clear policy or path of his own, but only knows how to gather people's opinions. Which is most dangerous, are the opposing opinions that she still put all of her in the porridge pot of her heart. Initially, he ran to run as President Obama for the 3rd term, promising to continue doing all that President Obama has done but not yet finished. After failing continuously in the first preliminary elections, he did not mention Obama anymore, and began to turn left to contend for the votes of the old husband of Sanders and his wife Warren. He defeated two communist grandmothers, the main part thanks to flattering the black people in South Carolina and initially won here, eliminated the two dignitaries, but looking at the experience of Mrs. Hillary lost her election because of her young radical electoral block. Sanders then boycotted Ms. Hillary, who played the disgrace card, cooperated with Sanders in a protocol, gave in to the extremists a lot, especially in the medical program, she opened the door. for the 'Medicare For All' policy of the radical left-wing radical, accepting the majority of students' college debt forgiveness,pledged to choose radical women to stand with the consortium, ... Then he turned to the conservative voters of President Trump, 'temporarily holding' President Trump's America First chant to chant US purchases. Newsweek recalled that Biden in the past had a record of stealing from his law student days, and then when he ran for the presidency in 1988, stole the entire speech of the leader of the British Labor Party, Neil Kinnock. (24) ⭕️ Courage the Founder Group, denouncing \"Mr. Trump went into the basement [15 minutes] when people came to protest in front of the White House, proving he was a coward\". How brave is Biden hiding in the basement of the house for almost half a year? ⭕️ CORRUPTION Biden, personally, has not been directly involved in any corruption case by the press. However, his intervention for his son Hunter Biden in a hundred million silver transactions with Ukraine and China has never been fully cleared by Biden. Many questions have yet to be answered. We invite readers to read the article on DTC about 'luggage' of old Biden. (25) ⭕️ CONCLUSION Mr. Biden is a man who has been rolling around in politics for nearly half a century, has a treasure trove of achievements for his opponents to find trash, especially he specializes in gossiping, making mistakes, accumulated mistakes. story. The Washington Post had to write, \"No, Biden is not just a trivial machine, he's a Lamborghini of gossip\". Lamborghini is the most expensive 'super luxury' car. (26) Ignoring all these minor missteps, Biden is now punching his chest to run to save America because this country has so many basic bad conditions such as color discrimination, poverty, immigration, gunfire bullets, ... All of these are great problems that date back to countless centuries. The question is that Biden has been sleeping in the highest positions of government for almost half a century, what part of his responsibility in those affairs? What have you done during the past half century? Why do we just wake up? Looking at the process above, how can a specialist who make wrong decisions, specialize in misleading, can effectively oppose the COVID translation, stop riot, control the Antifa and the Lo Lo, and restore the economy? , fending off Russian and Chinese hegemony, cutting a cow's tongue in the South China Sea, handcuffing Mr. Warm Warm,…? In conclusion, the CCP would like to borrow from Mr. Robert Gates, former Defense Minister of President Obama: \"Biden's achievement is a long chain of wrong decisions\". (27) President Biden ??? !!!

2020.08.21 07:57 Reinsus_Kyonen Helena & Ayaka - Two Ladies Same Jobs

Helena & Ayaka - Two Ladies Same Jobs
Slothutations! Sloth sleuthing it up!
Ever play this game and wonder?
Is Ayaka really necessary for content? Why do two units have the same jobs? How are they different? Is Helena even comparable?
RIP AI Helena before Ability Lock Update

Some background: I am a Day 1 F2P account that started the game with a Leonis Theme. I have Oelde, Mont, and Helena at Level 99. I did not have access to Ayaka until last month, so up until then (and even now) Lady Helena has been hard-carrying my team through PvE content with powerful healing, damage amplification, and CT manipulation. She is NOT possibly recommended in Arena PvP due to her Green Mage AI. In Manual content, she shines. Here is my personal assessment on Lady Helena and how she compares to Ayaka.
UPDATE: The ability toggle update is fairly new. I have yet to get enough experience with this to recommend Helena in Arena with locked skills. However, she should be doing even better in other content that is auto-able.
Disclaimer: There are a series of posts related to Job Positions and the Job Ability Board that provide greater context and detail for this overview. They are NOT required for this analysis. However, the explanations I give won't be at the same depth of understanding (for those of you who like that sort of thing - kinky I know.)
I recommend this one post that illustrates the topic. As always, I make use of WOTV-CALC. Now onward!
Is Helena just a budget Ayaka? Depends on who you ask. Some may say that Ayaka is an expensive Helena. Others, like myself, will argue that they are still 2 very different units in practice. (For 2 units to be so close to being the same yet have different identities speaks well for the game design.)
Same element. Same Jobs. Different Job Positions
In this game, Job Position matters greatly! Job Position 1 determines Main Job , while Job Position 2 & 3 determines Sub-Jobs 1 and 2. A Main Job can use a set of skills at all times while a Sub Job gives skills that can only be used when selected.
Below are two charts showing the skills that are obtained. (Please note I use similar colors down below. These do not match the color coding from the past picture.)
For the Main Job, the LEFT and MIDDLE columns are the skills, passives, and reaction abilities that the character has at All Times. The RIGHT column are ONLY if that Main Job's Subset is equipped. (Yes, Main Jobs also have a skill Subset*. This is why I prefer to refer to job positions. However, it is quite common for the Job in Position 2 to be referred to as Sub-Job 1 and the Job in Position 3 as Sub-Job 2.)*
For any Sub Job, the Left column contains three skills. The character only gains access to one skill from this pool of three or four skills. The Middle and Right columns are the skills, passives, and reaction abilities help complete the subset. These skills are only available if the subset is selected.

Note that Passives/Reactions can be slotted at any time!
Green Magic Main
Helena will always be able to Barareo and Baraerora your team, which give up to Wind Resistance +25%. And I mean, ALWAYS. It's the first skill she casts in any fight on auto. It's like she was hinting at the EX FLOOR 2 of the first tower. (Did you know the Iron Giants were Wind attribute?)
A List of Bar Skills that Green Mages May Get in the Future:
Barstool (depending how you look at it, you'd want resistance of this kind)
Barmaid (if you prefer butlers)
Barbecue (if you can't handle burnt food)
Bartender (if you can't stand being sensitive)
Bar-ney, Top Tier Green Magic Spell

Barbells - (Xiza bells are OP in this game. Green Magic saves the day!)
Baristas- (You ever wonder why Starbucks logo is Green?)
Barrage- (Pronunciation is a bit off. Protects against rage?)
Barbarian- (Double the bar there. Must be a Tier 2 Green Magic Spell)
Barbers - (Brrr... not anymore when they don't cut your hair!)
Barometers- (No one like pressure.)
Bar-ack Obama

She has access to non-elemental Ruin. This is a nice single target spell with decent damage. She is able to one shot most PvE level 75 or lower units with this spell.
You can't charm my husband!
Lamia has -25% Magic Res, similar to having a full Deshell cast on a 0 SPR unit. 3100 Damage with a Crit. This would deal 2500 Damage with a Crit a 0% Magic Res. 683 Magic with only +11 Critical Damage Mod (11+25=36 Total). No +Mag Attack Mod. With ~800 Magic and +Mag Attack from weapon/cards, normal ruin can reach 5k. 
She will always be able to Imperil, which is a -25% ALL Res which stacks with single target elemental resistance down.
This amplifies damage of ALL units!
Dispel: Gets rid of any stat buff. ATK buffs like those Iron Giants cast on themselves, Evasion buffs like Illusion (and no they can't evade Dispel), DEF/SPR increasing buffs like Sentinel, Speed buffs like Vitalize AND additionally the speed boon Haste. Dispel specifically states "removes buffs and Haste." This means that Haste is not a buff but a boon the same way Regen is a boon. Dispel would also include Elemental Buffs like Bar-Skills and Attack Resistances Increases like Yerma or Macherie's LB.
Green Magic Subset:
Deprotect/Deshell are debuffs that reduce DEF/SPR by up to 25 flat points. This can dip into the negatives. There is a neat interaction with Protect/Shell units in that they not only cancel, but apply this condition as well. (I got to recheck this statement. ^_^;)
Any Red Arrow down is a Debuff!
Vitalize is a 25% AGI buff to one target. Recommended use on an already fast unit like your thief to get them to be super fast. Can also be used on herself so that she can get her turns that much quicker.

Time Mage Subset:
With this subset, Helena gains the ability to Haste/Slow, increasing CT for your allies or decreasing CT for your foes. Immobilize & Float have their niche uses.
FLOAT AWAY SIREN!
Comet is similar to Ruin in every respect except in Cast Time. Comet is 320 CT while Ruin is 280 CT.
Lastly, Transposition for shenanigans that can surprisingly set you up well in PvE content. (Note you cannot swap places with any 2x2 size unit. You can swap with any target if they occupy one square.) You can target cast then move. Have your targeted unit move before the spell is cast for maximum distance. Or do the opposite for reposition before moving.

Who Needs a Bridge?
Quicken: This skill single-handedly allows any member on your team to chain with themselves. Skills like Pummel ( a low AP cost multi-hit skill) become powerful right before your eyes. Can be clutch for when any member of your party needs to go again in a round for any reason.

Unbuffed Oelde man gets to go twice thanks to his wife.

White Mage Subset:
With this subset, Helena gets both single target and aoe healing, Raise, and Esuna. Shell/Protect decrease the damage of attacks/spells by increasing target's DEF/SPR by a flat amount up to 25.
Curaga: Helena choose to go with AoE healing instead of Full-Life or Regen, which is terrific for content.
Now let's look at only the differences compared to Ayaka:

Very close in available skills!
White Mage Main Job:
Ayaka is a dedicated healer. She will always be able to heal your team with Cure or Curaga.
Full-Life: The white mage skill that can turn the tide of an Arena fight. 50% base raise with 100% HP gain. 63.5% success chance if Ayaka is 97 Faith and her target is 30 Faith up to near 100% on a 97 Faith unit. Pretty clutch in any fight it is used.
Regen: Restores 10% Max HP per turn for 3 turns. A non-Faith based heal is great to have. Awesome in longer encounters like tower, especially since the cast is AoE.
Holy: A +100% Hit rate skill. Although still technically possible for a unit to dodge, and still susceptible to reactions like Reflex and Magic Reflex, this allows your Ayaka to burst damage in a fight. +25% Undead killer as well.
Esuna: A single- target ailment cleanse for MOST status effects. Still doesn't clear Doom, Slow, Stop, or Charm.
White Mage Subset:
Helena also has these skills: Raise, Esuna, Shell, & Protect. Using any other Subset swaps these skills out for one of the other two skill-sets.
Time Mage Subset:
Meteor: Ayaka gains a non-elemental damaging spell. She then gets the rest of the core Time Mage Sub Job skill-set as Helena. NO QUICKEN
Green Mage Subset:
All the skills of a Main Job Green Mage, except Imperil and Dispel.
UPDATE: I meant to go in more detail here. I didn't mean to undervalue this LB. Whoops!
And in terms of skill difference, that's it. Let's not forget Ayaka's LB:
Angelic Grace: An instant cast large aoe (think Mediena aoe size) heal that's a little bit stronger than a Curaga. This also dispels Stop and gives Stop resistance for 3 turns. This heal is usually a full heal on all units. Dispelling Stop has been very relevant due to WoL. No waiting around and having your team possibly take that one additional hit that downs them while waiting to cast, which is typically 3 CT cycles with Speed Cast.
----
Let's Talk About Stats (cue the jazz music)
There are 3 major influences on a unit's stats before equipment and vision cards: rarity, job selection & position, and master ability.
Helena Stats
Ayaka's stats
RARITY - Unit Level Stats (Yellow)
The difference between a lot of the rarity units in the game seem to be combat experience. Ayaka, whose seen her share of combat in FFBE, is a UR unit. This translates to better starting stats. Helena, who has been retired from combat being a mother and a queen, is an MR unit. However, you will quickly see that Helena has higher total MAG and scales better from %MAGE than Ayaka because of this. Being an MR unit means Helena gets a lot less base stats especially in HP, TP, and AGI.
JOB POSITION - Job Level Stats (Orange)
Job Position effects the Job Level stats gained from leveling jobs. Main Jobs (Position 1 in green) get 100% Job multiplier to their Unit Level stats, while Sub Jobs (Position 2 in blue and 3 in red) get a 50% multiplier. This is best explained in brief here and as well as here.
Job Position also effects the Job Ability Board (JAB for short). Here are the boards for each:
Notice how Ayaka has similar Blue Node from Time Mage.


Notice they even share the same Purple Personal Node of Mag +20%
Color-coded for your viewing pleasure, each hex on the board is influenced by different Job Positions.
Any Job in Position 1 will have stats & abilities from any GREEN nodes. Job Position 2 will fill the BLUE nodes on the board and Job Position 3 will complete the grid with the remaining RED nodes. If two units have the SAME JOB in the SAME JOB position, then they have identical or near identical stat gains from those spots on the board, as is the case with Time Mage in Job Position 2. PURPLE represents a personal stat node that differs based on the unit. These two just happen to have the same node of +20% MAG as well.
Master Ability
Ayaka: HP +10% (188 HP) & Stop Res +20%
Helena: Magic + 30% ( 63 MAG) & Agi +10% (5 Agi)
Helena's Master Ability gives her AGI putting her only 2 AGI below Ayaka (62 base vs 64 base AGI)!
By this point, most of us know that Helena was>! a powerful black mage.!as her Master Ability! It's like she has a 3rd passive slotted on at all times. Woah Helena!
How do these stats create a difference in gameplay?
Ayaka gets more initial AP and Dex, while Helena gets way more Magic. Helena has stronger Magic scaling, which allows her to reach higher a Magic stat than Ayaka. This makes Helena have stronger heals than Ayaka. The only exception is Ayaka's one time instant heal LB.
Ayaka has two higher damaging spells in Holy and Meteor. This means Ayaka has burstier damaging spells, but is similar in damage output since Helena can reach higher Magic levels and Deshell/Imperil. So here, Helena does better since she spends less AP then her counterpart to do the same damage.

MR units are easier to Max LB due to shards being easier to summon, cost less in shop, and are more farmable from Hard Quests. I would argue that lower rarity units require less time investment, and that lessened time can be time spent elsewhere.
Whether or not time spent on particular units comes down to personal preference.
MR units require 500 shards instead of 600. With the 5 shards from shop weekly + 3 shards from Hard quests, one could get 26 shards a week. Taking into account the 20 (5+15) shards from 1st time completion of Hard quest and Master Ability Quests:
Ayaka: 30.5 Weeks Helena: 18.5 Weeks 4x increased likelihood of dupe pull 
This means Helena can reach LB threshholds faster than Ayaka. While Ayaka is working on her shards, Helena has 12 weeks of using her own TMR and looks like this:
Such a good TMR.
Helena's own TMR just so happens to give +50 TP. The TP increase puts her 2 pts higher than Ayaka (228 to 226).

The MAG stats from a non-craftable weapon is quite nice for completing the LB of an already good unit.
UR Ayaka has fairly decent resists.

Helena has Silence resistance. A bit squisher as well.
So, who should you go for? They are both good and can fill quite different roles despite being similar. If I want damage amplification via Imperil/Debuffs or Quicken or Stronger Cast Speed Heals, then I use Helena. If I want instant cast Healing LB, Stop Resistance, and +100% accuracy Holy then I use Ayaka.
Fun Fact: Imperil is ONLY found on MR and SR units currently. However, I read somewhere that Imperil will change to applying multiple single target elemental resistances so it won't stack. THAT is how strong that skill is and Helena is the only MR unit that ALWAYS has it. (We will see an MR Ice Green Mage in the way future who is a MR Green Mage / Time Mage / Thief. Helena paving the way as a template MR unit.)
Hopefully, you have a much better understanding of how these two units differ. I will be updating this guide over time with more gifs displaying Helena's healing/damaging numbers. She can hit 2k Curadas/ Curagas and if she crits about 2.5K Ruins.
Thanks to Bismark and his team for WOTV-Calc. A really good resource. To all those data miners out there! The community + streamers for always being positive when I comment on their content. (Fun fact: I started seriously posting after Cabbage suggested I do so. I was dilly-dallying up until that point.)
To-Do: Ayaka Gifs, Ayaka TMR, Helena Arena

2020.08.20 14:07 BelFarRod The definite guide to childbirth mortality in Westeros: the true numbers, and why they matter

Inspired by a few comments in another thread, here's a short essay I've been wanting to write for a while and finally managed to type out.
Enjoy.
Table of Contents:
  1. Childbirth mortality in the medieval and early modern era
  2. Childbirth mortality in Westeros
  3. Why does it matter?
  4. ASOIAF and deconstruction
0) Terminology
Childbirth/maternal mortality (MM) = the event of a woman dying because of childbirth-related causes, during childbirth or afterwards (e.g. puerperal fever) Childbirth/maternal mortality rate (MMR) = the probability of a woman dying in any single childbirth Lifetime childbirth/maternal mortality rate (LMMR) = the probability of a woman to die due to childbirth-related causes instead of other causes of death
1) Childbirth mortality in the medieval and early modern era
Westeros is inspired by the high & late medieval and early modern era of Europe. Think 1200-1700. This post is concerned with the issue of childbirth and mortality of mothers going through this process. This is a fascinating field of study, as there are still many misconceptions about this in our mainstream understanding of the medieval era. According to the Encyclopedia of Children and Childhood in History:
Studies by Roger Schofield, B. M. Wilmott Dobbie, and Irvine Loudon estimate that maternal mortality rates between 1400 and 1800 were between 1 and 3 percent. Most often, women died in childbirth due to protracted labor caused by a narrow or deformed pelvis, fetal malpresentation, postpartum hemorrhage, or puerperal fevers. The health risk was renewed at each pregnancy. Since a woman averaged five pregnancies, 10 percent of these women died during or soon after childbirth.
Maternal mortality rate (the scientific term for "childbirth mortality"), mind, applies only to the women who actually are in childbirth. Women who do not get pregnant, by choice or circumstance, are not included in this statistic. 1-3% is a very wide range, by the way. This is because 1400-1800 is a very wide timespan and Europe is quite the large and variable continent - in fact, both of this is true for Planetos as well, but I am getting ahead of myself.
According to Daily Life in Medieval Europe, the medieval Florentine woman had a 1.44% chance of dying in each childbirth she had. (MMR) This number maps the 1-3% given above at the low end.
Birth was a moment of heightened danger both for the mother and child, although complications were the exception rather than the rule. Statistics on maternal mortality are rare for the Middle Ages, but in fifteenth-century Florence there were 14.4 maternal deaths for every 1,000 births. Such a figure suggests that death in childbirth was an unusual event, but still extremely high by modern standards–about twice the rate of the poorest countries of the Third World today.
Compare: My home country of Germany has a bit of a high maternal mortality rate today compared to other industralized countries, but not especially high. It's .07 in 1,000. That's a whole lot more than 1.44. Out of 100,000 childbirths, only 7 women die. It was 144 in Florence.
2) Childbirth mortality in Westeros
The medicine in Westeros is very good compared to the rest of the technology and science. This should include maternal care. GRRM says:
Childbirth isn’t quite the killer in Westeros that it was in medieval Europe in the real world, since Westeros has the maesters, who are a considerable improvement over medieval barbesurgeons… but the levels of mortality for both infant and mother would still be frighteningly high by modern standards.
(Interestingly, he doesn't seem to mention midwives, who were an important source of medical care for pregnant women in this period.) Plus, ASOIAF is concerned with the nobility, whose level of medical care is exceptionally high - but we do have many examples of lowborn women giving birth as well. So the MMR in Westeros that we see should be roughly around the Florentine women we saw above and not on the upper end of the scale. Heck, let's even round it up to 1.5% to make it easier to calculate. You can even take 3%, the highest estimated MMR from the Encylopdia, if you want to assume, for whatever reason, that Planetos MMR is more analogous to the places and times in medieval Europe with the highest MMR rather than the lower end.
A maternal mortality rate of 1.5% means that there's a 98.5% chance to survive per childbirth. Let's take Catelyn as an example of how this works. She has born 5 children and no miscarriages that we are aware of. The probability to survive all 5 births is 0.985*0.985*0.985*0.985*0.985. That comes out at about .927 (rounded), so a probability of survival of 92.7%. So around a 7% lifetime chance of dying in childbirth. (LMMR) So her death in the childbed would be an exception, but still really, really high compared to modern sensibilities.
Compare: In modern Germany, Cat's probability of surviving her 5 births is 99.96%, and thus a 0.04% lifetime chance of dying in childbirth.
What would be the realistic LMMR of all women in Westeros/Essos, now? The Encylopedia of children... claims medieval women had 5 children at average; let's take this as the Westerosi noblewomen average too. (This average includes women without any children, which means that the median number of children we'd expect to see would be lower than 5, especially considering the high infant mortality rate. This seems to broadly map with the actual number of children we are given in the books.) So Cat, our example, is actually our average example of how high lifetime maternal mortality should be. Therefore, we expect to see 7% of women in Westeros dying from childbirth, and 93% from other causes: accidents, diseases (flu, ...), plagues (great spring sickness, ...), "old age" (heart diseases, cancers, dementia, ...), famine (especially in Westeros with its out-of-whack seasons!), violence (war, spousal violence, ...), suicide, ... Alternately, if you use the highest number from the Encyclopedia, you'd expect up to 14% LMMR.
Compare this, now, to what's actually on page, the known causes of death we see with our Westerosi women. For example, three of the most prominent female deaths are Lyanna, Rhaella, and Joanna, all in childbirth to three of our protagonists, for example. But wait, BelFarRod, you really cannot compare these three cases to actual scientific data! We do not have the cause of death for most characters in the books! Fret not, dear Mr. Strawman, someone has actually done the work and compiled all stated causes of death for Westerosi women. What a mad lad, what a mad fandom. This statistic includes only known causes of death and excludes all unknown causes of death, which might or might not be childbirth-related. From this, we can arrive at the LMMR by looking at the percentage of women dying in childbirth vs other causes.
Childbirth deaths are 31; non-childbirth deaths are 148. So, for 179 women, 31 died in childbirth.
Doing the math here, we arrive at a whopping 17.32% lifetime maternal mortality rate. Insert Too Damn High meme. Remember that our expected average noblewoman's lifetime maternal mortality rate, based on both actual medieval numbers and GRRM's own (!) goals, was 7%. This is more than double that number, when it should be that number or even lower. Even the extreme end of medieval LMMR, 14%, is still lower than that.
3) Why does it matter?
Very well, BelFarRod, you have shown that you can do history research and use a calculator, and I commend you for it. Your 6th grade high school maths teacher would surely be impressed if she could see you now. But why does this even matter? We have known for a long time that GRRM Can't Math (tm). Look at the Wall, and the size of the castles! He just doesn't really know about realistic numbers, and this is just another example of his writing going against his stated goals. Well, Mr. Strawman, thanks again for bringing this up. For one, now you can state some cool facts about (lifetime) medieval maternal mortality at your next party, and I can assure you that this will make you the hit at any party. Nothing cooler than knowing exact numbers of medieval maternal mortality rates.
Second, I argue that just like with the Wall and the castle sizes, we should be aware of this wrong math, lest we take it as fact - and we do have this preconception of women dying in childbirth that makes it easy to take this incorrect statement as fact. And "medieval childbirth" is even more relevant to our lives today than "building a wall of ice" or "building a medieval castle" - while giant ice walls are not really part of our daily lives, childbirth still is and probably will always be and important part of our lives. We are people who undergo childbirth, we are people whose loved ones undergo childbirth, and finally, we are people who exist due to childbirth. Ain't nobody out there existing due to giant ice walls. So someone has to do the research and the math.
Third, the death of women matters. ASOIAF, as a work, is very much concerned with gender and gender roles, from Cersei to Sam to Sansa to Arya to Theon, and the rigidity especially of pre-modern societies' gender roles. And one major part of Westeros' gender role for women is pregnancy, and for noblewomen, "being a broodmare". This is an important motivator, part of the society, and critizised throughout the text. Rape is another recurring event, and does lead to pregnancy and therefore a chance of death. Keeping in mind that Westerosi women apparently have a 17% chance of dying from childbirth, thus, gives us the instrument of analyzing this aspect of the text, and the characters and their arcs, more precisely.
Fourth, and most importantly... Take a step back from text, and look at our society, and look at the author. Here we have a book written by an author who claims he wants the maternal mortality rate to be lower than in actuality, and still his maternal rate is more than double the actual maternal mortality rate of his inspiration. We know GRRM writes women very well, we know there are many, many feminist themes in GRRM's writing, and we know that GRRM certainly didn't try to write such high maternal mortality rates - rather the opposite. But then how did this happen? How could this happen? GRRM can't math is one explanation, and it's certainly part of it. GRRM's research is not a historian's research, and this is also part of it. But here's the other thing. Dying in childbirth is an inherently and by definition gendered death. Why did GRRM's mind go to "oh, they all died in childbirth"? Why didn't Rhaella die of starvation a year after Dany's birth? Why didn't Joanna die of a flu two years after Tyrion's birth? Why didn't Lyanna die falling down the stairs of the ToJ? Their deaths in childbirth are necessary for the plot, necessary for the character arcs of many of the protagonists. Their gendered deaths are necessary for the story to work. And it's a damn good story, don't get me wrong - Joanna's death specifically in the childbirth of Tyrion makes Tyrion's and Jaime's and Cersei's arcs and relationships with each other that much more compelling. Apparently, GRRM seems to think that gendered deaths make for good storytelling, or else we would see much less of them, and not nearly such an unrealistically high number.
But why do these gendered deaths make for a good story? Are drowning, plagues, violence, or famines less suited, as causes of death, to tell a good story? Why did GRRM apparently decide these gendered deaths specifically make for a good story? Why must so many mothers of the protagonists die in childbirth?
Why do women die in the birthing bed, and men die on the battlefield?
4) ASOIAF and deconstruction
Stories are not written in a vacuum. ASOIAF looks at the romanticized view we have of our medieval-inspired fantasy worlds, and deconstructs it, tears it down to reconstruct the elements that matter, the elements that we care about, so we can leave the trash behind. Look at how bad feudalism is. Look at how much classism sucks. Look at how destructive war truly is. Look at the violence inherent in slavery. Look at how rigid gender roles suck. Look at the difficulty of being good in a bad world, look at the difficulty of making decisions as a ruler. "What's Aragorn's tax policy?" goes hand-in-hand with "How does Rosie feel about giving birth to 13 children?", two questions traditional fantasy ignores. And it's fascinating to see the author who goes out to ask such questions return to these old, flat tropes of women dying in childbirth - without, apparently, even noticing it!
When do our minds return to old tropes without us even noticing?
Oh, that's a good question, BelFarRod. Why thank you, Mr. Strawman, let's think about it together.

2020.07.29 02:23 igotitatme How I spent my Christmas, New Years, Birthday and More! My Story and a few pictures to really rub in how much alcohol sucks!

Christmas of 2018. My family is having dinner together. Everyone kept being so pushy about me eating. I kept telling them I couldn’t eat, and it hurt. I felt sick after I ate, every time. I just wasn’t hungry. They wouldn’t stop pushing, to the point where they spoon fed me food.
I puked 10 minutes later.
***
In 2017 I started feeling something moving right in the center of my core, where my solar plexus is. I had trouble catching my breath. It felt like there was a metal strap tightening around the bottom of my rib cage. (*SPOILER* Let me stop you right now, this is the beginning of pancreatitis, Satan’s punishment for alcoholics.) I was 29. The Drs visit resulted in nothing abnormal (liver specialist says otherwise, years later – big surprise). I knew something wasn’t right and I should have pushed more, but I didn’t. The pain seemed to go away for a while, and I just ignored it.
In 2018 (about a year and a half later) I began having the most extreme pain in my solar plexus, again. It felt like I had a baby’s elbow or foot just moving around right in the spot underneath the breastbone. I could even see something moving. I began feeling this very heavy sensation in my lower abdomen. Lord knows I thought I was pregnant more times than is reasonable. Of course, I wasn’t. But the pain that came every few weeks was absolutely debilitating. It came mostly on weekends. I would wake up in the early morning with an excruciating pain in my abdomen, and the lower left side. It felt like I could hardly breathe, move, sleep, eat - nothing made it stop but time. Time spent only in bed, barely sipping water and any movement was complete black out pain. I tried gasX, I tried Pepto-bismol, I tried so many things. Nothing worked.
Then, I started throwing up uncontrollably. Huge amounts of vomit, especially alarming because for so long, I barely ate anything. I drank almost every single calorie. At this point I was up to about a 6 pack of beer each day, pretty high volume, being about 8-9% a piece. More, sometimes.
Labor day weekend of 2019 and I was with my Mother at a hotel room. Weeks before, I began noticing that I was just gaining weight, all in my lower abdomen. It didn’t go away when periods were over, it wasn’t bloating, I was barely eating, and everything I drank came up eventually, unless I was lucky enough to keep it down and make it to bed. I expressed to my Mother that I was just so uncomfortable with this new weight that I could not figure out where it was coming from. She told me that she did notice it, but assured me nobody else could tell, and gave me a very *special* Mom suit to wear for “comfort”. I note this specific memory because this was the moment I realized I needed medical care.
2 weeks later I went to urgent care. My belly was so swollen I could barely breathe and nothing fit me. But only in the abdomen. My legs were tiny, my arms were tiny, my face looked gaunt. The pain was unreal. It was like becoming 8 months pregnant in 3 weeks with a body that is not havin’ that shit.
Urgent care did an ultrasound and found that I had fluid accumulating in my “third space”, or abdomen. I really did not know what that meant at the time. It seemed as if the medical professionals surrounding me were also unsure, which of course adds extra terror. It turns out that I needed a procedure called a paracentesis. They only do it in certain hospitals, and for me, that turned out to be a little over an hour away. In fact, urgent care sent me straight to the Hospital in Seattle, not my town – because we didn’t have the specialists here. That was pretty hard to swallow. And I don’t live in a tiny town.
So, I end up in the Hospital the next morning, away from my family and very scared. They give me the paracentesis, which is where they insert a needle into your abdomen (usually supervised with an ultrasound…) and then use a vacuum in the wall to suction it right on out of you. They removed 70-80% of the fluid in my belly, a little over 4 liters. That’s over a gallon, and weighed about 12-13 lbs. Unfortunately for me, they hit a nerve on the way in which feels like someone is pulling out every single nerve of your lady bits. Oh, and the way out, as well. So that terrified me when I heard I would have to do this multiple times until they figured out what was wrong with me.
They kept me a total of 10 days in the hospital that time. Each day, I never knew if I would be able to go home to my family. I have a 9 (8 at the time) year old Son. The nurses were the most amazing humans on the planet. They were there for all of the throwing up (lots) and all of the tears and needles (more than lots), bathroom issues, pain, comfort – HUGE shout out to all of your Nurses out there.
Finally, because I couldn’t eat, they sent me home with a nasal feeding tube. I would not wish this on my worst enemy. It’s as awful as it sounds. It’s like covid test all day every day, plus – the stuff spills everywhere and smells like baby food. Gross. And as an added bonus, when I got back home, nasal tube and all, my Dr. had no clue what was going on. (Not her fault, she was fabulous once she was given the right information from the hospital.) I ripped it out myself after 5 days.
Then, I had to see a liver specialist. My liver was fine in my CT scans and blood tests. But with the amount of alcohol I had been consuming, they were positive it was my liver. Even though they didn’t know. So, I went to see a wonderful Dr. Dr J told me it was not my liver, but in fact it was my pancreas. My blood levels for an enzyme called amylase was completely out of whack. My amylase levels were in the 3000’s, and are supposed to rest somewhere in the 30-70 range, I believe. The fluid was accumulating because my pancreas was bottlenecking the enzyme, and so it could not reach the food to digest it. My pancreas then created so much that it started seeping out of my pancreas in extreme excess, and the byproduct of that was the fluid build up called pancreatic ascites. And also, chronic pancreatitis.
I couldn’t get in to see a specialist to fix the problem by placing drains and stents in my bile duct, pancreatic duct, and pancreas, for over 2 months. I just had to live with this massive fluid gain, not to mention pain all day, every day, as if it was the worst pregnancy pain you can imagine, and get those gnarly paracentesis every few weeks until December 23rd.
December 22nd was the last day I ate food until February 3rd. That means nothing but water, tea, and jello. What was supposed to be an out patient procedure to fix this cost me Christmas, new year’s, and almost my birthday in the hospital. During my 2 weeks there, among many other things, I had multiple ERCPs, CTs, MRIs, blood tests, paracentesis, blood transfusions, I got a picc line on Christmas Eve that was with me for over 3 months, I got a percutaneous drain coming out of my pancreas that I had for over 5 months, a clear liquids only diet if, I was allowed to consume anything, and so many needles I actually stopped being afraid of them. Many of these days were spent PTO.
When I was released, I was fed intravenously through my picc line, which I was required to clean and maintain. If I screwed up, I could get sepsis. I could not shower without help for 5 months. I could not eat for over a month and a half. I’m still not 100% out of the woods.
But I’m not dying, and I finally see the light return to my eyes that I didn’t even realize I had lost until I found it again. I have committed to not slowly killing myself every day. Today I am three months sober. Yes, that means I have drank since I came home from the hospital the SECOND time after this nightmare. Fuck you, Alcohol. I have finally committed to accepting that I am an alcoholic.

TL;DR: Alcohol is a nasty beast. It was slowly killing me, and almost succeeded, had it not been for the amazing Drs, family, and support system I had. Here’s to the battle against it. This is my story. I will not drink with you today.

2020.07.22 17:43 ill89 Thinking about having my right lower leg (foot and ankle) amputated...should i?

Hi ladies and gents, this deserves a bit of a backstory, so i am sorry for the hench essay... main points at the end, but please read all for the big picture. I will value any response i get from this post as i am truly at a loss of what to do...
In Jan 2016 i had a GCT-TS (Giant cell tumour of the tendon sheath) / PVNS (Pigmented villonodular synovitis) removed from my lower leg/ankle (main mass was in-between my tibia and fibia, and was descending into my ankle ball join.
This single-mass tumour (proper name for this now is GCT-TS as PVNS now refers to the diffuse form of this tumour) had been removed successfully, but it took me 4 months before i could walk and work again (Im a Carpenter by trade).
So fast forward from ~April 2016 to now, my tumour has reccured, confirmed mid-last year by mri. This time in diffuse form (for those like me who didnt know, diffuse means many lumps as opposed to one), so now my disease is being reffered to as PVNS in its current form and GCT-TS in its previous form. My GP has been prescribing me increasing doses of pregabalin to handle the pain (it was/is mostly nerve pain at this point)
I have been under the care of a proffessor of a sarcoma team in Oxford, England for my treatment this time round, as i have been trying a drug (called Imatinib, meant for lukemia and certain other trypes of cancers, even though my tumour is, thankfully, not cancerous) treatment, as this proffessor in his past 10 years of treating people with PVNS with this drug, he has seen major success with this treatment.
So i take the prescription, and begin taking these cancer pills - 1 a day, from about Oct/Nov last year - ~April this year. I had a PET-CT scan before i started the Imatinib treatment and again around April this year when i stopped taking the drug. I stopped taking the drug because the PET-CT scan results side by side showed that my disease is still growing.
About 2 months ago i suddenly collapsed under my own weight getting out of bed - the pain in my right foot/ankle became excruciating all of a sudden, and was put on an emergency few weeks of tramadol, which has been ongoing to this day.
About 2 weeks ago i suddenly collapsed from pain again, but this time i was still on the pregabalin and the tramadol. so i go in to the GP in person, all hand sanitised and face masked, clutching my cane and shaking horribly on the thing because the pain was so fucking bad (this isntance is the only time in my life i had started crying just from pain, i've never broken a bone before) so this without competition my most painful memory. Even more painful than when i woke up from surgery having it removed the first time, and THAT was previously the most pain i had ever felt in my life.
This past week - all the while still taking the pregabalin (been on max allowed prescribed dosage for months now), still taking the tramadol (been months too, gone through at least 3 boxes of the stuff) and now with morphine on top since 2 weeks ago - i have been fantasizing about just getting the dam foot chopped off. My logic there is that my rare af disease will deffinately not come back, and i wont have to contend with the gmble of more pain and surgery in the future, future being as soon as 3 years time - as it had only been 3 years between fully healing from the first op to finding out its growing back.
Few things making me lean toward getting my leg cut off ASAP:
  1. Im on 3 types of pain relief, 2 of them opiates, and i still havent had my surgery to remove the tumour. This is more pain relief i am recieving now BEFORE surgery considering the first surgery i didnt need any pain relief before, and was on morphine for 2 days before being discharged on codeine.
  2. After the first surgery was possibly the worst pain of my life until recently, which is making me scared shitless about how much its going to hurt after surgery this time around, considering the point above.
  3. Post-surgery this time, there is a high likelihood of not being able to curl my toes or feel under my foot due to where one of the tumours is. Also, the operation this time will be twice as extensive, with the inside of my foot being a new inscision, and the outside of my foot will require re-opening the previous inscision to tackle the remaining tumours, which if that goes anything like the last surgery, i wint be able to feel my toes or the outside top of my foot either.
Few things are making me lean toward giving surgery another shot:
  1. Im aware of a phenomenon called phantom limb pain, i didnt think it was as common a phenomenon as i recently learned the statistics of (apparently 80-100% - is it really that high??)
  2. Phantom limb pain can last years, i've learned, but apparently this subsides after a few - is there credit to this too??
  3. I wont have my real foot anymore, and am unlikely to become a carpenter again without my natural foot (someone here please proove this wrong!!!)
Other than those few points, im about ready to just cut away my diseased foot. But after my meeting with my surgeon today, ive decided to delay my surgery "by as late as end of August" to recieve consultation from the hospitals amputating team, to try and learn more about what is truly involved with loosing a limb.
TLDR

Somebody foot/legless, please help 😢😢

2020.07.19 02:09 FlarioKath I'm making a CT distribution that's only meant to be used by me and my brothers. Should I release it anyway when I'm done? (won't be soon)

It's basically a collection of our favorite CTs, since we only play offline in multiplayer vs and therefore we don't really need stuff like CTGP (unless we want 200cc, unless until le-code implements it). Plus we're getting female representation pretty much out of the roster by including custom characters instead, because none of the three of us enjoys impersonating a princess or a lady mushroom. Also, if I figure out how it works I might implement triple fibs instead of the blooper and make single bananas, single shells, fibs and bombs behave like triple bananas. That's basically it.

2020.07.16 19:22 Bond_em7 [Confounded Memories] JP Megathread (XIII)

I'm starting to wonder if they just ran out of names for events and went "Let's just name them all 'Confounded Memories' since we have no clue". Maybe there's some signifigance that actually ties these together and makes them a series but...I'm not seeing it from what I look at.
The last XIII event was about six months ago and the initial reveal and discussion for this event are here.
There's also a Cardia Support event coming (17-31 July) which is like the magicite cupport events we've had but for Cardia.
Thanks to onthefaultline for the translation work, dataminers like ElNinoFr (and other I'm sure), and S0litair3d as always for the posts on GameFaqs that allows me to do these and also thanks to Pyrotios for always checking my work and helping make sure these things are accurate.

B1: First off it was noted that Raines Sync and AASB can stack using Ultima in slot 1 so...have fun with that! Secondly, Raines FINALLY gets some En-Holy love so we now have another Holy Black mage that can actually stand up and fight (move over FuSoYa). We get the 2.0 realm chain which will help with the Dreambreaker. Other than the cool new things on the banner it's hard to get a read here...it's mostly damage which does help with the Dreambreaker and a few of the anti-dreambreaker relics we normally see but with no healing here it pushes B2 for that which is a different tactic than we normally see. Obviously with the elemental and MAG/PHY split on the banner it's also hard to recommend for Odin. Overall, look here for XIII DPS.
B2: Support and healing for Dreambreaker here. Yes there's also damage here but not nearly as much as B1 so if you're pulling here the DPS isn't what you're primarily looking for (though you may be pulling for a specific DPS character). There are two chains but not enough Holy to target here over something more Holy focused and if you're after a realm chain the better one is on B1. Overall...pull here for healing but look to B1 or elsewhere for just about everything else.
There's also an upcoming Mage Premium Lucky (First Draw Half Price gem only). Here's what it has:
  • Red XIII Sync (Earth+ Hairpin)
  • Garnet LBO (Lightning+ Rod)
  • Red XIII AASB (Earth+ Hairpin)
  • Garnet AASB (Lightning+ Rod)
  • Alisaie AASB(Lightning+ Sword)
  • Meia AASB (Water+ Rod)
  • Garnet USB2 (Lightning- Light Armor)
  • Alisaie USB
  • Red XIII Flash+
  • Garnet Flash+
  • Alisaie Flash+
  • Meia Flash+

2020.07.14 02:21 fractalfay My hands speaking my words: Recap of 90DF HEA S05E05

The struggle to select a single quote that captures the essence of an episode has never felt more real. From Debbie finally celebrating her inner Lady MacBeth, to Low finding a more eloquent way to say “I hate Othello,” this episode is 90DF Shakespeare. Hey nonny nonny.
In a moment of zero suspense, Larissa walks into the immigration office, and then walks right back out. That’s right, friends: those shots of her in the rest of the season aren’t holograms. She tells her friend that they took something like a mug shot, and “then she took the finger.” That Clue game always gets so weird after this turn.
Later on Larissa meets up with Eric, to ask if they can have a fake reunion to match their fake breakup from their fake relationship, and Eric asks if he can use that “ash in the wind” line he was saving for the next time he wrote a country song. Larissa says fine.
During their conversation we learn that Larissa broke up with Eric via text. Then people started harassing her online, calling “my butt cheesy butt,” and Larissa decided this must be Eric and filed a police report on him. That must have been amazing paperwork.
“Ma’am, just following up on a report you submitted. You’re on…instagram, is that right? Now the instagram, is that the internet? Okay, okay, just making sure. So, do you feel unsafe on the internets after this ‘cheesy butt’ threat that you received? And you have reason to believe that Eric is responsible for this ass slander? Does he have special knowledge of your butt cheese, ma’am?”
She and Eric still have issues, and they’re not afraid to exaggerate them for the next six or so episodes, while mining for something more interesting than “cheap” to butt heads about. That should carry them to the point in the narrative where Jess contacts Larissa to tell her that she was right.
Speaking of Debbie, she’s never left the country before, because the weight limit for checked baggage prevents her from taking Colt and her slot machine. Still, she’s eager to see what their Walmart is like, because there’s nothing more exciting than seeing the same thing you have at home, but elsewhere.
“That’s interesting,” Paul interjects. “Have you heard of this place called a ‘grocery store’? Karine says they have them in Brazil, but I didn’t pay attention to the food because it wasn’t in English.”
“Well I don’t understand why it’s not in English,” Mother Debbie is worried. “How do they expect people to go there? Do they even have maps? What about numbers? Do they use those funny symbols you see in caves? What time is Wheel of Fortune on there?”
Paul: Do you have an opening for a son, by any chance? I promise I’ll never leave. Ever.
Mother Debbie: Well I’m going to have to ask Colt. Until I do you can have this spare change I cut out of his pants, and caught in my mouth while clinging to his ankles. That’s why he wears shorts now. I don’t think that’s fair to me.
Debbie is concerned that Jess is another Larissa, and fears Colt will make the same decisions all over again. “If I tell you I have a bad feeling, will you listen to me?” She pleads with Colt.
“I don’t know,” Colt waffles. “You usually have a bad feeling about the women I’m dating by the third date.”
“The second date. Then I press my face into the glass of their bedroom windows until it leaves a grease print, and I come back again and again, until I am the bad feeling, imprinted FOREVER. You should probably never date anyone again.”
Colt just continues to pile the clothes Debbie folded into his Mary Poppins suitcase, while her anxiety forms a cloud around him.
“People at home are saying for God’s sake lady, let him live his life,” Debbie tells the producers. Yes, we are saying this. “Well, no.” This woman knows herself!
After a lengthy flight that I’m sure was peppered with stunning observations like, “well these peanuts are little” and “the sun sure is hot!” Colt is starting to worry that his mom tagging along wasn’t the best idea. She notes the Panda Express at the airport, and is relieved to see you can be disappointed anywhere in the world.
Jess is a bit uneasy as she awaits the arrival of Colt and his mother, because she’s thinking about Larissa’s warnings. She says she’s going to keep that conversation from Colt, because they agreed not to talk about it until the reunion.
They deplane, and Jess happily embraces Colt. Debbie is exactly as warm and welcoming as you’d expect, as she describes Jess as “voluptuous” which makes her think of sex, so the jealousy fertilizes her egg of rage. After both Colt and Jess assure viewers and Debbie that they eagerly anticipate sex that is sexy, and also sex with sexual sexiness, they get into an Uber for the hotel, and start tossing out hypothetical baby names. Debbie doesn’t understand why Colt never considered her ability to mother again. Hell she toted colt for 18 months, give or take, and breast fed him till 25. Now she’s getting left out? Unfair.
“I still change his diapers and fold his underwear in the cutest little squares,” Debbie spurts. “Then I warm them in my mouth and rewrite his name on the waistband with a sharpie when my drool fades the original name away. Sometime I blow them dry after he puts them back on. What are we talking about?”
Jess is all of us: “I think it’s weird that Debbie is here. It’s my vacation, and it’s better me and Colt alone.”
“Yes, those are alarme bells,” Larissa coaches. “They go a ding a ding a ding. Debbie is under bed right now-e. Also, do not eat the beef stew.”
Jess and Colt share a series of gerbil kisses right in front of first wife Debbie, and she has not consented to the triad. It burns her face, and she tries to wipe it away, but nope: it’s still her face. She thinks Jess is trying to talk him into being an adult, when he’s perfectly fine as a permanent 14 year old boy.
“I’m really sick,” Debbie declares. “And not manipulative at all.”
Hoping for an orgy, Colt only reserved one hotel room, and Debbie DGAF, she just needs to sleep. Jess starts pressing her about how she slept in Vegas or something, and this reminds me of a dog cornering a skunk, then barking at it. Debbie says you either let her sleep for ten minutes or take her to a hospital in 30 minutes, GODDAMMIT. I’M REALLY SICK. Then Jess says Debbie is rude, and while this is true, dude, you were barking at a skunk.
Tania is taking her scrutiny of Syngin on the road to a nice looking nail salon, thanks to friend Monique. Let’s all take a moment to reminisce about way back in the day, when we would dunk out feet in water and trust a stranger’s hands to soften our heels with a cheese grater before wrapping them in plastic bags full of wax. Good times. Anyway, Monique is acutely aware of what a giant pain in the ass Tania is, and points out that not only did they just get married, but now he has to wait on Tania hand and foot, so the “for worst” part of their wedding vows arrived a little early.
“He doesn’t wait on me hand and foot,” Tania corrects. “He just carries me around the apartment on his back, between bathing me and making me breakfast, and looking for a job. Yes, I have a crutch, what?”
Since expressing gratitude for his service can’t happen, Tania fixates on what she now describes as a drinking problem, while continuing to drink herself. She says he can work now and has been hunting for a job, but pickings are slim for a bartender who can’t pour a Guinness. The manicurist looks up periodically to make sure she’s actually on television.
Syngin has been waiting for his next chance to play the “you’re not my soul mate” card, and that moment is now. He’s beginning to piece together that he’s going to spend the next six months waiting for her foot to heal, then the six months after that watching her fill out disability forms for the instant arthritis that activated the minute she put a boot on. Then they’ll need another six months to save up money, then oh look, she’s pregnant, so maybe another 18 years in CT, with Syngin carrying Tania and all the babies from room to room like a possum. Plus, he didn’t get married to get married, he got married because the K1 left him without options.
Tania says she’s ready to make a one-to-three year plan, which sounds like something she does before blowing it off for a trip to Costa Rica, at which point it becomes a to-do list for the left behind. But Syngin? Now that he’s married, Syngin doesn’t know if he’s ready to be a husband, or to be burdened by children, and yes, men on this show never understand a biological clock, and Tania should start talking to her male friends about sperm donation now.
“I don’t know if I want to stay in a country that leaves you with a mountain of debt from a routine surgery,” Syngin doesn’t say at all. “I mean, my liver is going to fail sometime in the next ten years, and I’d like to be prepared.”
Tania is concerned that this is the first time she’s hearing that he’s uninterested in remaining in America. Syngin insists he doesn’t want to raise children here or send them to school here, and Tania makes her case with, “BUT I TURNED OUT FINE.” You know it’s true when someone shouts it.
Toddler Aseulu somehow impregnated Kalani twice before his balls dropped. Last night he shoved all his Batman comics and Lunchables into his Hot Wheels suitcase, and dragged it all the way to the bus where he asked for a one-way ticket to outer space, like the man of the house. Kalani reports that after he stormed away he sent her a series of riddles and a treasure map to help her pinpoint his location and be away from her children and family as long as possible. Kalani said tell me where the fuck you are, my dude, because it’s your son’s birthday, and Oliver shouldn’t wonder where his dad is when they all live in the same house. Asuelu agrees to return, but just to play video games and sulk, MOM.
Kolini and Low arrive for the party, and they ask where Asuelu is, and Kalani says that he “came back” when they don’t yet know the story of his leaving. Low asks for more information, and gets the details of their car ride, save for the whole “lying bitch” part. Low agrees to keep it cool since it’s Oliver’s birthday and he’s capable of thinking of others, but he’s going to go ahead and polish up his ass-kicking shoes so they’re ready to be taken for a walk. Kalani wastes her time checking on Asuelu to try to coax him away from his video games and into adulthood, by promising he can eat all the hotdogs he wants, before resuming efforts to arrange a party for her son, by herself. Teenagers, amirite?
Later on the party is happening, and Oliver is driving a remote control car all around the rental property. One of Kalani’s friends asks where Asuelu is, and Kalani says he’s stretching out his butthole in preparation for Low’s foot. She again says she’s going to check on him again, which is two times more than she should have indulged this shit, and he again says he doesn’t want to talk to anybody and is going to stay in his fort ALONE, MOM.
“It’s like talking to a four year-old,” Kalani tells Kolini when she returns, which isn’t fair, because even a four year-old would come out for cake.
As the party goes on, Low is not impressed. “The Samoan way, it would be my hands speaking my words,” Low explains. But he agreed to be nice (for now) because cameras are rolling, and that’s too much evidence for a lawsuit.
“This is why I said I’m the dad,” Kolini adds. “I mean, did you see his reference to his boo hole last season? Jesus Christ. She has two babies sucking the life out of her, and now she has a husband sucking the life out of her.” Then Kolini strikes a match on a gold filling to announce her status as keeper of the flame.
Eager to do the bare minimum, Aseulu finally opens the door and comes out. Kalani’s expression rotates between walking on eggshells and being psychically exhausted. When the party ends, Kalani asks if there’s anything he wants to say to her, and Asuelu asks why the word ‘house’ has an ‘ow’ in the middle. Kalani wrongly thought an apology might be directed her way. Nah. The plan is to maintain the tantrum until she demands that he go to Samoa alone, like the man of the house.
Is anyone on this show not dating a man-baby? Save us, Angela, save us! She’s getting ready to take off for Nigeria, and her friend Amy is going to help her out by taking care of her mother and the kids while she’s gone. We learn so much about Angela by the circle around her, which is huge and honest and loyal. Before walking out the door she fusses over her mother one last time, asks if she’s wet, which only further illuminates how much caretaking Angela does.
“Got any last minute advice?” She asks her mother as she readies to depart.
“Just go and get married, whatever,” Mother Angela says, and I need this embroidered on a pillow.
After her plane lands, Angela hunts down her MeMaw gear in baggage claim, and finally spies it thanks to some sticker decorations. Michael is waiting for her, wearing his Angela nameplate necklace. They warmly embrace, and it’s all happy and shit.
Michael and Angela are going to test drive living together by sharing an apartment. She walks in with a few compliments about the place, before the producers step in to ask if she can isolate something to complain about for fuck’s sake. Angela says I’ve got you, and declares she’s not sleeping in the bed, because it’s “hard as an erection.” Then she notices a dead rat in a trap, and Michael seizes the opportunity to chase her with it. This is one of the most relationship-like gestures in this series in a long time, and a reminder of how rarely we see a couple enjoying each other. More of this, please!
Libby will soon be studied in psychology classes as an example of total passive-aggression, while her husband will be offered up as exhibit A: the long term effects of bad romantic decisions. Mother Andrei has prepared a full afternoon spread my grandmother assures me is required of all Eastern European women, while Libby cuts up bananas and an avocados for homemade baby food for Eleanor. They’re both frustrated by the language barrier, but Andrei can’t be bothered to translate, because he’s showing everyone pictures of monster trucks and guns, and also his dick, like the head of the household.
Once they sit down Libby starts mining for a complaint, asking if Mother Andrei ever feels tired. His mother starts to say “of course” but Andrei cuts her off, insisting she says there’s “no room for tired” because she loves working a thankless second shift so that men can stand in a circle and scratch their balls. Libby thinks this might be a dig at her not working hard enough, and Andrei says Moldovans are more energized. This seems a great time to remind him that he doesn’t have a job, and Andrei wants to know if she’s trying to insult him, and insists she shouldn’t insult him in front of the family. Why, you ask? “Over there you listen, and here you listen double.” She falls silent in response, in a human recreation of the flaming apartment “this is fine” meme.
“I don’t know why he’s acting like the chauvinistic alpha male,” Libby says. Honey, he’s not acting.
Later, they head to meet Andrei’s fellow meatheads for beers. Libby is worried she’s going to be left out because of the language barrier, and asks if she “is just going to sit there” during this meeting. Passive-aggression to English translator: My Moldovan is pretty limited, so if you could remind folks of the language barrier and include me, I’d appreciate it. Andrei asks if this is some kind of feminism happening, and when Libby assures him she’s still a doormat and would be even if she called herself a feminist, he says, “What do you want? A podium to speak?” Podiums don’t speak, Andrei. Not without years of training.
In case anyone forgot, Andrei wants to be considered “the man of the house” without fulfilling his formulaic gender destiny, and yes, Libby is just as backwards as he is.
“It’s not that I have a problem with gendered expectations,” she explains. “It’s that I can’t fulfill mine while I’m busy fulfilling his.”
His friends immediately needle him about not working, and he says that yes, he’s a housewife, and his friend says he used to be a hard worker, and now he’s just working hard to piss Libby off.
“I work,” Andrei clarifies. “I hung television. And I’m going to still be the man of the house, and I’m still going to make the decisions for the family. Like I’m going to decide what we spend Libby’s father’s money on, and when Libby will ask for more. I will also schedule crying.”
Libby buddies up with the two other women at the party, and they ask why her family doesn’t like Andrei. She says that they think he’s rude, mean, lazy, and controlling. Libby asks if more Moldovan men are like that, and the response is yes. Nicely done, ladies. Your male population is secure. Libby also says that her sister Jen is loud and doesn’t care what others think, so she might offend someone, and she’s not going to bite her tongue. For the record, Libby thinks “biting her tongue” is bringing up what she means days after the conversation is over, and Andrei thinks if he wears his balls outside of his pants, his friends won’t call him a pussy for not having a job. Later they drive home and she asks if he had fun, and he asks if she got what she needed, before declaring that Jen might sleep in the basement if she offends someone, along with the blanket he made out of Libby’s self esteem.
Karine is attempting to change Pierre’s diaper, while Paul hovers at her elbow and tells her not to forget to wash his balls. This is some of Paul’s finest work. Then Paul hovers some more to repeatedly ask if Pierre’s hungry before she even has her tit out, and needlessly put a drape over her breast feeding, because to Paul that’s probably cheating, or the fast track to an STD. He pesters Karine to go get something to eat with his mom, which is really just a means of asking for money with grandchild leverage, since his full financial plan is asking his mother for help. Karine knows this is her only chance to escape, so he’s going to have to take that dinner alone.
Mother Paul is disappointed to see just her son, and says she wouldn’t have come if she knew that Karine and Pierre weren’t coming. Damn, the magic of that gifted hair lock must have faded. He tries to make Karine’s absence about invented offense related to her inability to use the bathroom at Paul’s mom’s house, but Mother Paul knows her crotch fruit is rotten. Paul insists he’s in trouble and on edge, as opposed to how relaxed he is the rest of the time, and tells his mom he needs a little financial support, because of course he does.
“It seems like he never gets his feet on the ground, or his head out of his ass,” Mother Paul states. She tells Paul that he should have some pride, and do it on his own. She says no, and tells him that he should have planned ahead. She’ll babysit, but she doesn’t think it’s fair using a baby to get what you want.
Asuelu: Have you tried becoming the baby?
Paul: I don’t want to ask you for any help, while I’m asking you for help. Remember how you really, really wanted us to come here?
Mother Paul: I pray for you a lot.
Later on Paul wears his trusty bulletproof backpack to the grocery store, because he never knows when he might run into himself. While Karine notes that this is, in fact, a grocery store, she’s unimpressed with Paul’s economic plan to buy more than you need, because savings. This is a great option for people not trying to squeeze milk from a nickel, but not for this destitute duo. Karine insists that $2 is less than $5, but Paul is not to be dissuaded. Since Karine hasn’t already tried to crawl underneath the floorboards, Paul takes command of the feminine hygiene aisle, demanding to know her preferred thickness and underwear adhesive. Karine begs him to stop, while Paul reflects that he knows there’s pearls, and there’s diamonds, and a whole range of flavors (except banana), that go in all kinds of holes. He’ll suss this out with the pharmacist. How is there not footage of Paul and the pharmacist?
“It’s beautiful, isn’t it?” For fuck’s sake, Paul.
Did Paul ask for a job application on the way out? No he did not.
Then they go house hunting, with Karine looking for her next husband on her phone, while Paul hunts for a rental agreement for a convicted felon with no job. They meet with a property manager, and Paul asks if they have anything four steps down from a tarp and two trees. She shows them “one of my redos yourself” that are sold as-is, which is something salvaged from the tornado fields of Xenia, Ohio. Karine hands down a firm veto, so they see a second mobile home, which is just as claustrophobic as the last one. Paul learns about the $500 lot rent they’d be surrendering, and wants to know if he can put in notice that it’s gonna be late now, or should he wait?
Karine got sold a bill of goods that life in the US of A would be better, and instead she’s lost family support, and stands to be crammed into an even smaller home.
“You no good husband,” she says, while asking the producers if she can get paid directly this round, because airfare back to Brazil is expensive.
Next week: Larissa spare changes for boobs, Syngin tries to escape service to Tania, Andrei continues to be Andrei, Debbie tells Jess that Colt can warm himself in her womb again anytime he needs to, Low threatens Asuelu some more, and Michael has a stunningly bad idea.

2020.07.14 02:20 fractalfay My hands speaking my words: recap of Happily Ever After S05E05

The struggle to select a single quote that captures the essence of an episode has never felt more real. From Debbie finally celebrating her inner Lady MacBeth, to Low finding a more eloquent way to say “I hate Othello,” this episode is 90DF Shakespeare. Hey nonny nonny.
In a moment of zero suspense, Larissa walks into the immigration office, and then walks right back out. That’s right, friends: those shots of her in the rest of the season aren’t holograms. She tells her friend that they took something like a mug shot, and “then she took the finger.” That Clue game always gets so weird after this turn.
Later on Larissa meets up with Eric, to ask if they can have a fake reunion to match their fake breakup from their fake relationship, and Eric asks if he can use that “ash in the wind” line he was saving for the next time he wrote a country song. Larissa says fine.
During their conversation we learn that Larissa broke up with Eric via text. Then people started harassing her online, calling “my butt cheesy butt,” and Larissa decided this must be Eric and filed a police report on him. That must have been amazing paperwork.
“Ma’am, just following up on a report you submitted. You’re on…instagram, is that right? Now the instagram, is that the internet? Okay, okay, just making sure. So, do you feel unsafe on the internets after this ‘cheesy butt’ threat that you received? And you have reason to believe that Eric is responsible for this ass slander? Does he have special knowledge of your butt cheese, ma’am?”
She and Eric still have issues, and they’re not afraid to exaggerate them for the next six or so episodes, while mining for something more interesting than “cheap” to butt heads about. That should carry them to the point in the narrative where Jess contacts Larissa to tell her that she was right.
Speaking of Debbie, she’s never left the country before, because the weight limit for checked baggage prevents her from taking Colt and her slot machine. Still, she’s eager to see what their Walmart is like, because there’s nothing more exciting than seeing the same thing you have at home, but elsewhere.
“That’s interesting,” Paul interjects. “Have you heard of this place called a ‘grocery store’? Karine says they have them in Brazil, but I didn’t pay attention to the food because it wasn’t in English.”
“Well I don’t understand why it’s not in English,” Mother Debbie is worried. “How do they expect people to go there? Do they even have maps? What about numbers? Do they use those funny symbols you see in caves? What time is Wheel of Fortune on there?”
Paul: Do you have an opening for a son, by any chance? I promise I’ll never leave. Ever.
Mother Debbie: Well I’m going to have to ask Colt. Until I do you can have this spare change I cut out of his pants, and caught in my mouth while clinging to his ankles. That’s why he wears shorts now. I don’t think that’s fair to me.
Debbie is concerned that Jess is another Larissa, and fears Colt will make the same decisions all over again. “If I tell you I have a bad feeling, will you listen to me?” She pleads with Colt.

“The second date. Then I press my face into the glass of their bedroom windows until it leaves a grease print, and I come back again and again, until I am the bad feeling, imprinted FOREVER. You should probably never date anyone again.”
Colt just continues to pile the clothes Debbie folded into his Mary Poppins suitcase, while her anxiety forms a cloud around him.
“People at home are saying for God’s sake lady, let him live his life,” Debbie tells the producers. Yes, we are saying this. “Well, no.” This woman knows herself!
After a lengthy flight that I’m sure was peppered with stunning observations like, “well these peanuts are little” and “the sun sure is hot!” Colt is starting to worry that his mom tagging along wasn’t the best idea.

After her plane lands, Angela hunts down her MeMaw gear in baggage claim, and finally spies it thanks to some sticker decorations. Michael is waiting for her, wearing his Angela nameplate necklace. They warmly embrace, and it’s all happy and shit.
Michael and Angela are going to test drive living together by sharing an apartment. She walks in with a few compliments about the place, before the producers step in to ask if she can isolate something to complain about for fuck’s sake. Angela says I’ve got you, and declares she’s not sleeping in the bed, because it’s “hard as an erection.” Then she notices a dead rat in a trap, and Michael seizes the opportunity to chase her with it. This is one of the most relationship-like gestures in this series in a long time, and a reminder of how rarely we see a couple enjoying each other. More of this, please!
Libby will soon be studied in psychology classes as an example of total passive-aggression, while her husband will be offered up as exhibit A: the long term effects of bad romantic decisions. Mother Andrei has prepared a full afternoon spread my grandmother assures me is required of all Eastern European women, while Libby cuts up bananas and an avocados for homemade baby food for Eleanor. They’re both frustrated by the language barrier, but Andrei can’t be bothered to translate, because he’s showing everyone pictures of monster trucks and guns, and also his dick, like the head of the household.
Once they sit down Libby starts mining for a complaint, asking if Mother Andrei ever feels tired. His mother starts to say “of course” but Andrei cuts her off, insisting she says there’s “no room for tired” because she loves working a thankless second shift so that men can stand in a circle and scratch their balls. Libby thinks this might be a dig at her not working hard enough, and Andrei says Moldovans are more energized. This seems a great time to remind him that he doesn’t have a job, and Andrei wants to know if she’s trying to insult him, and insists she shouldn’t insult him in front of the family. Why, you ask? “Over there you listen, and here you listen double.” She falls silent in response, in a human recreation of the flaming apartment “this is fine” meme.
“I don’t know why he’s acting like the chauvinistic alpha male,” Libby says. Honey, he’s not acting.
Later, they head to meet Andrei’s fellow meatheads for beers. Libby is worried she’s going to be left out because of the language barrier, and asks if she “is just going to sit there” during this meeting. Passive-aggression to English translator: My Moldovan is pretty limited, so if you could remind folks of the language barrier and include me, I’d appreciate it. Andrei asks if this is some kind of feminism happening, and when Libby assures him she’s still a doormat and would be even if she called herself a feminist, he says, “What do you want? A podium to speak?” Podiums don’t speak, Andrei. Not without years of training.
In case anyone forgot, Andrei wants to be considered “the man of the house” without fulfilling his formulaic gender destiny, and yes, Libby is just as backwards as he is.
“It’s not that I have a problem with gendered expectations,” she explains. “It’s that I can’t fulfill mine while I’m busy fulfilling his.”
His friends immediately needle him about not working, and he says that yes, he’s a housewife, and his friend says he used to be a hard worker, and now he’s just working hard to piss Libby off.
“I work,” Andrei clarifies. “I hung television. And I’m going to still be the man of the house, and I’m still going to make the decisions for the family. Like I’m going to decide what we spend Libby’s father’s money on, and when Libby will ask for more. I will also schedule crying.”
Libby buddies up with the two other women at the party, and they ask why her family doesn’t like Andrei. She says that they think he’s rude, mean, lazy, and controlling. Libby asks if more Moldovan men are like that, and the response is yes. Nicely done, ladies. Your male population is secure. Libby also says that her sister Jen is loud and doesn’t care what others think, so she might offend someone, and she’s not going to bite her tongue. For the record, Libby thinks “biting her tongue” is bringing up what she means days after the conversation is over, and Andrei thinks if he wears his balls outside of his pants, his friends won’t call him a pussy for not having a job. Later they drive home and she asks if he had fun, and he asks if she got what she needed, before declaring that Jen might sleep in the basement if she offends someone, along with the blanket he made out of Libby’s self esteem.
Karine is attempting to change Pierre’s diaper, while Paul hovers at her elbow and tells her not to forget to wash his balls. This is some of Paul’s finest work. Then Paul hovers some more to repeatedly ask if Pierre’s hungry before she even has her tit out, and needlessly put a drape over her breast feeding, because to Paul that’s probably cheating, or the fast track to an STD. He pesters Karine to go get something to eat with his mom, which is really just a means of asking for money with grandchild leverage, since his full financial plan is asking his mother for help. Karine knows this is her only chance to escape, so he’s going to have to take that dinner alone.
Mother Paul is disappointed to see just her son, and says she wouldn’t have come if she knew that Karine and Pierre weren’t coming. Damn, the magic of that gifted hair lock must have faded. He tries to make Karine’s absence about invented offense related to her inability to use the bathroom at Paul’s mom’s house, but Mother Paul knows her crotch fruit is rotten. Paul insists he’s in trouble and on edge, as opposed to how relaxed he is the rest of the time, and tells his mom he needs a little financial support, because of course he does.
“It seems like he never gets his feet on the ground, or his head out of his ass,” Mother Paul states. She tells Paul that he should have some pride, and do it on his own. She says no, and tells him that he should have planned ahead. She’ll babysit, but she doesn’t think it’s fair using a baby to get what you want.
Asuelu: Have you tried becoming the baby?
Paul: I don’t want to ask you for any help, while I’m asking you for help. Remember how you really, really wanted us to come here?
Mother Paul: I pray for you a lot.
Later on Paul wears his trusty bulletproof backpack to the grocery store, because he never knows when he might run into himself. While Karine notes that this is, in fact, a grocery store, she’s unimpressed with Paul’s economic plan to buy more than you need, because savings. This is a great option for people not trying to squeeze milk from a nickel, but not for this destitute duo. Karine insists that $2 is less than $5, but Paul is not to be dissuaded. Since Karine hasn’t already tried to crawl underneath the floorboards, Paul takes command of the feminine hygiene aisle, demanding to know her preferred thickness and underwear adhesive. Karine begs him to stop, while Paul reflects that he knows there’s pearls, and there’s diamonds, and a whole range of flavors (except banana), that go in all kinds of holes. He’ll suss this out with the pharmacist. How is there not footage of Paul and the pharmacist?
“It’s beautiful, isn’t it?” For fuck’s sake, Paul.
Did Paul ask for a job application on the way out? No he did not.
Then they go house hunting, with Karine looking for her next husband on her phone, while Paul hunts for a rental agreement for a convicted felon with no job. They meet with a property manager, and Paul asks if they have anything four steps down from a tarp and two trees. She shows them “one of my redos yourself” that are sold as-is, which is something salvaged from the tornado fields of Xenia, Ohio. Karine hands down a firm veto, so they see a second mobile home, which is just as claustrophobic as the last one. Paul learns about the $500 lot rent they’d be surrendering, and wants to know if he can put in notice that it’s gonna be late now, or should he wait?
Karine got sold a bill of goods that life in the US of A would be better, and instead she’s lost family support, and stands to be crammed into an even smaller home.
“You no good husband,” she says, while asking the producers if she can get paid directly this round, because airfare back to Brazil is expensive.
Next week: Larissa spare changes for boobs, Syngin tries to escape service to Tania, Andrei continues to be Andrei, Debbie tells Jess that Colt can warm himself in her womb again anytime he needs to, Low threatens Asuelu some more, and Michael has a stunningly bad idea.

2020.07.10 14:31 Bond_em7 [Distored Records] JP Megathread (III)

Sorry this one is late...I was gone a couple days before the 4th of July and without cell signal so I never even saw the threads on this. I assume with the EoM event, then the I event on the 10th there wasn't one in between...so DeNA made me the fool this time. Thanks to JadedLad7 for letting me know it had been missed!
Normal full unlock event with a Stroke of the Brush - The Meek dungeon. The last III event was about five months ago and the initial reveal and discussion are here.
Also it should be noted the Glory Fest Dream Banners were released during this event.
Thanks to onthefaultline for the translation work, dataminers like ElNinoFr (and other I'm sure), and S0litair3d as always for the posts on GameFaqs that allows me to do these and also thanks to Pyrotios for always checking my work and helping make sure these things are accurate.

B1: Well future-sight being what it is, we have CoD for magical darkness this week and a strong focus on Garland with physical darkness next week so pick which one you need! The III phantasm/Dreambreaker came out a while ago but this banner is still geared towards it with the 2.0 realm chain for Arc, III focused AASB from Luneth, Healing, slot saver healer Glint+, DPS, and Limit Overflow. If I had written this first I would have complained that on the realm AASBs they need to do something more unique than just Weakness Damage, but since Thief does on the next banner (party DR in addition) I can't really complain. Overall, it's a good III Phantasm/Dreambreaker trap so if that's where you need help look here.
Step-Up Gacha
First, since it isn't really a B2 (like with the Elemental Pick-Ups for FBC) and since it contains a large number of relics for a few characters I won't be doing any analysis/commentary on the Banner.
Step Up Gacha which includes Onion Knight SASB, plus all AASB, UOSB, Chains, USBs, Flash+, Flash, and LMRs released before the Last III event, for Onion Knight, Cloud of Darkness, Ingus, Desch, and Refia (doesn't include the relics there for clarification).
NOTE: There is an error with the Step Up banner. OK SASB is mistakenly added to the free pick pool. The game has acknowledge that it is a mistake, but they will not rectify it. (Thanks S0litair3d).
  • 11-pull option only
  • Full price (50 Mythrils or 2910 Gems) unless mentioned
  • Banner rates differ on certain steps
  • After Step 10, resets back to Step 7
    • Step 1: 50% Discount
    • Step 2: 40% Discount, 5% UOSB rate
    • Step 3: 20% Discount, 6% AASB rate
    • Step 4: 2% SASB rate, 6% AASB rate
    • Step 5: 6% AASB rate, 6% UOSB rate
    • Step 6: 1 Free 5* or 6* Pick, 6% AASB rate, 6% UOSB rate
    • Step 7: 1% SASB rate, 6% AASB rate, 6% UOSB rate
    • Step 8: 1% SASB rate, 6% AASB rate, 6% UOSB rate
    • Step 9: 3% SASB rate, 5% AASB rate, 5% UOSB rate
    • Step 10: 1 Free 5* or 6* Pick, 3% SASB rate, 5% AASB rate, 5% UOSB rate

2020.07.09 21:51 jerkface1337 I am self employed, so I need to work, even when I am sick. The hospital cannot help me. What is wrong with my body?

It really feels awkward to ask this question here, but I figured it might help, so I will give you a short story about my symptoms, my lifestyle and all this information someone might need to find out whats wrong. I will provide every detail because I am not sure If some symptoms might just overlap with a problem I had earlier in life, for which I also did not find any solution except that there might be a problem with my chest back. I also need to point out that I NEVER managed to descripe my situation that accurately to anybody because, well, its text. I can review it and add what is missing.
First, lets start about me and my family record of disease:
I am 24 years old, male, smoker, living in austria (austria,not australia). My family is very healthy, although nearly everyone smokes/has smoked at some point in their lifes. There is no known genetic problems except for my aunts problem which is stated below (I don't even know if that's something genetic).
My sister had a tumor on her pancreas once. Doctors needed 2 years to figure why her blood pressure and sugar where super low and why she was fainting all the time. Now she's good.
My aunt had depression for many years. She even broke up with her husband because of that. Turned out, she "only" had gluten intolerance. Now she is good.
I wrote those things because thats the reason I cannot accept the diagnosis "mental XXX" as I am a live-loving person with lots of motivation for everything, I just cannot realize lots of things right now because of the way I feel now. I understand that the way I lived(more information below) was not the best thing to do, but I cannot see that this should still be the cause of my problem, especially because I felt bad, good, and now bad again. Like I said, more information below.
Second, lets continue with information about my symptoms, I will rate some of those in severity, depending on how much they impact my well-beeing. Note that those symptoms did not start all at once and some got betteworse over time. For some of those points, I will later point out when they started.
  1. Beeing dizzy and confused, hard to concentrate and feeling uneasy. THIS is the most important one, it makes my life so extremely difficult right now. All other things that are listed here are trivial compared to this one. It is the worst. It prevents me from working. Makes me lie in bed because everything else is too difficult. Makes me panic sometimes if it is very bad. I only have episodes of that, sometimes it's completely gone. It nearly never happens in the morning.
  2. When nr 1 happens, I get nausea sometimes, but its very subtle and never nearly strong enough to make me worry about it.
  3. Heart beats at 40-50 BPM and very strong when falling asleep, but in a VERY uncomfortable way. I am NOT doing sports long enough to achieve something like that which should actually be healty. This only happens sometimes, but regularly.
  4. Ringing in my ear, but it feels as if it comes from my head..hard to descripe. Annoying, but bearable.
  5. Pressure in my head, usually comes with feeling dizzy. Very discomforting.
  6. Tingling feeling on my head skin on one specific spot. Annoying
  7. Sudden stings in my head, hard to descripe
  8. Some kind of burning sensation in my left head with a little bit of headache.
  9. Eyesight got a little worse. Before I did not need glasses, now I am considering to buy some. I can still read stuff without glasses normally, but I notice when looking at street signs.
  10. Very much floaters in front of my eyes. Two very big ones that sometimes block what I want to read. This is very annoying, but I know I will just have to live with that.
  11. If I look at the clear sky, some kind of "tunnel" starts to appear right at the point I look. Its very small and subtle, I have to concentrate to see it. I tried to find a video or image that shows that, but no success. Tried to draw that in Gimp, but I'm too bad at drawing for that. Maybe thats just super trivial but I have never noticed that before. It does definitely not resemble "migraine with aura", at least not what you find on the internet.
  12. High blood pressure, highest was 200/something. Don't hang yourself up on that number! It was only once, and it was when I felt the worst from all this time since problem nr. 1 started.
  13. Lower back pain when I lie on belly and read a book for some time, i guess thats normal as my profession is sitting in front of computer 8 hours a day(which I do not right now, because I cannot work like that)
  14. Stinging in lower left abdomen(left from my perspective). Cannot be provoked, no correlation between eating or sitting. It gets worse by swimming I THINK, I'm not sure. 7/10.
  15. Pain in my cervical and chest spine. No wonders, I am cracking my back like crazy all the time because off...
  16. ...the tight feeling in my chest. It is sometimes there, sometimes not. Sometimes it hurts when I breath in deeply. It feels like cracking my back relieves some of that, but that might be pure imagination as I'm cracking my back since four years already.
  17. Sometimes when I run or swim there is a single massive sting in my chest. Makes me feel scared.
  18. When I do very much sport, almost every single time I get some arythmic heart behaviour for a brief moment in the evening when I lie in my bed already.Sometimes it just skips a beat like: bum,bum,bum,.....,bum,bumAnd sometimes it like: bum,bum,brbrbr,bumYes, you are allowed to laugh. No better way to describe it.
  19. Sometimes very hot neck and head. Yes it sounds weird, but it feels bad. My thermometer which I usually put in my armpit for 10 mins to measure, shows 37°C then. IDK how good or bad that is.
  20. I was told some things in the hospital, I will provide the liver values and other stuff later.
Now, lets continue with a chronolocially ordered list of things that happened since the point stuff got worse with my body. I will add in trivial things that might be important, though. I will also start way earlier than those symptoms started to appear, because there might be important information. I will refer to the symptoms above
  1. July. Nononononno...its happening again..why.. Number 1 is in the house once again. Why? What did I do wrong? Am I mentally ill and I dont notice or whats the reason? I dont get it.
Alright. Overall I, for myself, think there are a few things that might be the reason for all this:
Enlighten me!

Edit: on the 10.may I will go to the doctor again, then I will see how my blood levels have changed over the course of 1 1/2 months with my new lifestyle!
Edit2: me feeling bad has NO correlation with blood pressure. Its completely not related, I checked many times. Yesterday I felt bad, pressure in head, ringing in ear, and this is what i measured: https://imgur.com/a/D1i1TFT
