“Just go dumpster diving at the funeral home.”

2023.06.01 13:44 warcrimechibu Nobody fucks with the Jesus - Dealing with aggression through Dudeism

Hey Dudes, it's been a rough couple months for me. I'd been sorta losing faith, so to speak, in Dudeism because I couldn't find a way to abide and still deal with life. I'm still grieving, now experiencing some funeral-related financial troubles, AND I'm having trouble at home again. I've mentioned it before, but the toxicity had reached its breaking point a couple weeks ago and things had gone so downhill to where I had to call a crisis line. After a long talk with the operator (very Dudely herself), I decided to make some changes.
The operator gave me some helpful keywords, so since then I've been browsing other communities full of people in my same situation and reading the long resource guides that they've put together. Gonna be honest, it's a tough thing to get through. I'm not a reader, and it's really a lotta strands to keep in my head. Tons of information about my situation that I hadn't been able to comprehend on my own. I've been adhering to a strict drug regimen to keep my mind limber as I work through these issues in the same environment they're caused by.
However, as I'm reading through these guides to coping, I'm realizing - everything I need to know, I learned from The Big Lebowski. The tips began to read more and more like the lessons from the Abide Guide and posts I've seen on this subreddit.
One thing I'd always struggled with was how to deal with these strange, manipulative shouting matches. I always found myself entering a world of pain any time I entertained any single one of these delusions being thrown at me. There's a clear language problem here. So I asked myself:
What did the Dude do when being verbally assaulted by the Big Lebowski?
The Dude went into this conversation earnestly, expecting some calm and easy communication. Instead of staying focused on the Dude's actual issue, Lebowski immediately went for the insults and began shouting. At this point, the Dude realizes that communications have broken down. He puts on his glasses - quite literally shielding himself from Lebowski. He lets the guy talk, but he's filtering it out - this is not our concern, Dude. And in the end, he says "fuck it", and disengages from the situation. There's no point in arguing, since Lebowski is not willing to listen (as evidenced by how he continues to shout at the Dude while he leaves), so the winning move here is not to play.
Damn! New shit has come to light. As it turns out, this scene perfectly illustrates how to disengage from an abusive conversation.
At the same time, when dealing with abuse on a daily basis like this, you're gonna need to implement other strategies. The Dude is a master of self-care, so giving yourself time and space to recover is CRUCIAL. You gotta draw a line in the sand and let people know that this aggression will not stand. You gotta know when to say fuck it and go bowling. Even then, things can get dangerous so you gotta know when to leave things up to an expert to handle (calling 911, for instance).
Look at me, I'm rambling again. Since I hadn't seen many perspectives on abuse and coping through Dudeism, I thought I'd share some revelations I had over the past few days. Maybe if I can get all these strands sorted out in my head I'll write something a bit more coherent about it. For now though, it's just a matter of implementing all these strategies and abiding my way through the situation.
Keep your minds limber, Dudes.

2023.06.01 13:05 pdmock The last 24 hours have been rough

I have been a big bag of swirling grief, anger and lonliness for the last 24 hours. I am a contract employee working 1000mi from home, and found out my grandmother died. She was a glowing light in my life. One of the few people that loved me for me. No more no less. My family basically said, we are not having a true funeral, but a celebration of her life on her birthday coming up. It is planned for her birthday next week. For the last 2 weeks I have been begging to get my schedule swapped or change a date to have a day off to go home for a day. I was turned down left and right and we do not get bereavement time. Also, if I call out of work I lose my housing stipend along with my pay for that day ($1500).
Take that, combine with yesterday being the 15th anniversary of my mother's death (on my dad's birthday). My heart started aching so hard. I drove to work last night, and had a panic attack and tears in the parking lot. I didn't want to come in to work. I called my husband (who's 1000mi away) he was able to calm me down enough to be able to walk in to work and keep it together for the night. I miss home so much. As much as I love where I am, I wish I could have some empathy and compassion and treated the way I treat people. If someone was to tell me they needed a shift swap for a family emergency I would change plans to the hest of my ability to make it happen. I won't let this stop me from being the person I am, but it feels so shitty compounded with the grief to not feel worthy of empathy or compassion. The literal word in my head was, "this is a prison". I feel like a prisoner asking for a leave ticket. Not an employee who hasn't missed a day of work in 8 months.

2005 - Trial Day 64
Michael goes to court with Katherine, Joe & Randy
Judge Melville gives the Jury the rules of Jury Deliberations
Michael Jackson sat quietly in court as the 12 jurors were given their instructions ahead of closing arguments from both sides.
"You've heard all of the evidence and you will hear the arguments of attorneys," Judge Rodney Melville told the jury. He told them to make their decision without "pity for or prejudice toward" the defendant.
The eight women & four men who will decide his fate will hear closing arguments today and could begin their deliberations as early as Friday (it is currently Wednesday). Jurors are expected to hammer out their decision behind closed doors for about six hours a day until they reach their verdict or announce a deadlock.
The charges against Jackson consist of four counts of molestation, four counts of giving the boy alcohol in order to abuse him, one count of conspiracy and one of attempted molestation.
Jurors were told they could consider the four alcohol counts as lesser charges of "furnishing alcohol to a minor." This would be considered a misdemeanor and means that the jury would not have to relate the alcohol to any intended molestation.
Judge Melville told jurors not to consider the four videos played in the trial for the truth of any remarks made in them, except for certain statements that prosecutors claim are admissions from Jackson. These statements will be outlined in a document to be provided by prosecutors.
The Judge also instructed the jury on how to consider the past allegations against Jackson. He said that if they determine he does have such a history, "you may but are not required to infer that the defendant had a predisposition" to commit the crimes alleged in this case.
But he added “that is not sufficient in itself to prove he committed the crimes charged
He also told them not to infer anything from the fact Jackson himself had decided not to testify.
Thomas Mesereau will deliver closing arguments for the defense while Deputy District Attorney Ron Zonen is expected to deliver the prosecution’s closing statements.

2008\* - Late in the month, Michael's duet with Akon, "Hold My Hand" is leaked online. Michael is devastated
Longtime recording engineer, Michael Prince, who was working with Jackson at the time “Hold My Hand” leaked, recalls:
“He was truly upset when the song he did with Akon leaked. He would just get this sad look on his face like, how could this happen? Because 20 years ago this would not have happened. And somehow everybody in the world has a copy of it. And that really upset him because he liked that song a lot.”
Akon gave a detailed account of the events surrounding the leak during an appearance on Tavis Smiley’s PBS television show in January 2009:
“Me and Mike did this incredible record called Hold My Hand and the record is amazing. Phenomenal. And the concept was that this would be Mike’s first release off of his new album, and then I would stripe it on my album – on my following release. That way we could have the outlets open for everyone to be able to receive the record. You know, Mike came up with this brilliant marketing launch for the record. You know, he’s the best at launching a record.”
Akon continues:
“He’d have the whole world paying attention in two minutes… And before we could get to that point, the record got leaked over the internet. And we got over 15 million downloads on the song for free. So we couldn’t [release it]. You can’t at that point. Everybody already has the record. But in a way, you gotta look at it like… that’s just a gift to the fans.”

2023.06.01 12:13 Naila-Thought103 My abuser came back after 10 years

10 years ago, I was severely beaten and choked until I was unconscious by my boyfriend. When I gained consciousness, I made it to the hospital and learned he had broken two of my fingers. I was devastated. Instead of feeling sorry for myself, I felt sorry for him.
I kept saying, I must have done something horrible for him to beat me. In reality, I just told him, I wanted to break up.
While I was in the hospital, several detectives came back to discuss pressing charges. I pressed charges and he was arrested immediately. His family reached out to me and asked for me to drop the charges. They were so kind and loving.
I came to court and told the judge, I wanted to drop the charge. She initially refused saying- he choked me until I passed out and he only stopped because he thought I was unalived. I still dropped the charges. Immediately afterwards, his family called me a slut who had ruined his life.
My family didn’t support me. They said I should just forget it. I couldn’t just forget. After my cast was off, I had to go to physical therapy to learn to use my hand and write again. I tried to block the incident and the person out of my mind. I moved to another state. I was fine or I thought.
Several weeks ago, my father died and I returned to my home state. I am outside of the funeral home and the person walks over to me. He says, “ I am here, if you need me.” I have never been so scared in my life. When my family goes to the repast, he is there. He is constantly talking and walking near me. I am so afraid that I can’t talk.
Last week, I saw him at a party. I could feel him watching me but I figured because there were so many people that he wouldn’t talk to me again. When he is super drunk, he comes over to me and says, “ the reason why we got into it was you would never listen, 10 years ago. We need to talk.”
I leave with him. I honestly thought maybe he would apologize or express remorse. I always fantasized that he would give some grand apology and grand gesture of love and I could forgive him.
He tells me I am a slut who made up lies that ruined his life. He says he never hurt me or broke my fingers or choked me. When I tried to say something, he said “ shut up” and I did. He says, “ tell me what I did to you” but I couldn’t say anything.
I hated myself for what I said next - I wish we could be friends. I wish you could forgive me.
He says, “ I have to tell everyone I lied about him attacking me. He says I have to write a letter saying he never did anything to me. I said no. He says, “ I have given women black eyes but I never blacked your eye. I didn’t hurt you and you know it.”
Now, a week later, I am struggling. I know he did abuse me but I don’t know. I think I am crazy. I am starting to question what happened to me. I know my fingers were broken. I am losing my grip on the reality of what happened to me.
I went to Domestic Violence court to read my case file. The file was gone because he was able to get it expunged years ago. I don’t know what to do. I thought I had forgiven him but I hate him. I hate he was able to get the case file deleted. I hate he is now a rich, powerful, successful person while I am stuck with a crippled hand.

2023.06.01 11:13 suspencesooz2 I dropped out at the end of 3rd year, my life is ruined

I have ruined my life, I do not know what to do anymore. I did not enjoy my course, however I stuck it out due to wanting to be the 1st in my family to graduate and make everyone proud. My course was graphic design, for the years doing it I have now hated the design industry, the selfish people, the nepotism, classism and I have had all creative ideas sucked out of me dry. I was once happy, now I have also been suffering from anxiety and depression into the years on my course and I have started SH for the first time in my life, constant panic attacks when reading a email from university or related to university. I got to around a few weeks before the end of the course where I tried to take my own life, this is where I have had to accept that I will not be graduating and I need to do something else as this will kill me. I feel so selfish as I have a loving family who did not pressure me to go to uni, but I feel I let them down. I was so lonely on my university course, I had no friends and I do think that played a part into my situation. My family want me to be safe and healthy, but I can’t help but feel like I wasted my life as I will have so much uni debt to a degree I didn’t graduate from, and one I don’t want to graduate from. I want to go into a completely different field, I want to do a career where I help people; I want to work in a hospital or a funeral home as I can help people when they’re struggling, but I don’t know how I can go about this. I wanted to get this off my chest as it’s killing me and I feel so sore.

Need a favor, y'all. For Opa.
Father's Day is approaching. I lost my Opa two years ago. He was such a force to be reckoned with. I think about that stubborn, jovial man all the time.
I am pretty far, and it would mean the world to me if someone could please put a Golsch beer and bag of Bugles on his grave for Father's Day. I would pay for any costs, of course. He's buried at Greenoaks Funeral Home & Memorial Park.

2023.06.01 08:34 Lovely_Hippo78 F35 update:

So for those who have been asking about my f35 here's an update on how it's going. For those looking for some reading material before bed I got you covered as well.
Things I've changed: - weapon panel. It went from barely functional to completely inoperative. Currently working on auto sorting/switching weapons panel to replace the old manual one.
-control system. I added extra keybinds for important things (autopilot, gear, flight mode, launch) and added controller support so it now supports hotas systems! Only downside is that when I looked at it again after having not touched it in a day or two, there is an uncontrollable oscillation above 200knots. The current 'fix' is turning down the leading edge flaps but that messes with trim which messes with autopilot which messes with everything. Safe to say this system is worse off than it was a few days ago, but it's on a better path so eventually it'll get good. I might end up fitting a hotas seat into the plane just for the extra keybinds and axis. This plane is already a dream to fly (when working properly) so being able to keep your hands on the controls would be great! Only downside is that I need to relocate 1 panel in the cockpit and I haven't decided where to put it. So for now, the old seat stays.
-core systems. I am trying desperately to simplify the computational load of the f35 without sacrificing features. I taught myself tables today and they will definitely come into play as a go forward with this project. Today alone I removed 16 lua blocks from the weapon system. I went from every pylon doing its own math to one central brain in a different MC that just pumps out what pylon to drop and when. Progress is decent in the optimization department!
-attitude. Don't get me wrong, this is still the single most complex system I've ever built in stormworks. Half the systems haven't been started, and the other half are barely functional. I've already put over 200 hours into the project over the past few months and it often feels like 2 steps forward 1 step back, but right now I feel more motivated to work on it than I did when I first saw those bays open. So even if this project is formed to fail, it will not be going down anytime soon.
-canopy. The all important canopy. The aesthetics did not change but the brain did. For reference on how much power I'm putting into this computer, the canopy talks to the main systems on board. For 99% of applications the canopy will do exactly what you want it to without your input being required. The other 1%? It's being worked on. That's kinda the goal of this whole plane. I want to do as little as possible as a stormworks pilot but man I really hate it when a computer does something you didn't want it to do. That just gives yall a good reference as to what my thought process is here.
OK as much as I love talking about my FCS dying, autopilot crying, weapon system reviving, and canopy vibing, I think it's time we talk game plan. There were a lot of people mentioning how they just couldn't wait for this thing to go up on the workshop. So for those of you dying from anticipation, I expect a funeral invite. This project has taken a long time, and there isn't a single aspect of the plane that I am even close to happy with yet. As much as I would love to put this plane on the workshop right now, I just can't. It NEEDS to be perfect. Saying "a long time" and "perfect" doesn't allow for reasonable time estimates, instead, I'll just list off some of the main goals of the plane (subject to change of course) and yall can make your estimates on how long these will take me to implement. Remember, half the fun is learning how to do it, so every system will be home grown for this plane. Also I know these are basically unattainable, but either I make it happen or this plane never gets seen on the workshop so let's hope for a miracle shall we :P.
Flight control system goals: - full controllekeyboard support with selectable control types based on controller needs (sticky throttle vs centering throttle for example)
-capable. If I ask to roll at 360°/s. It must roll at 360°/s and it must do it with a "yes sir, anything else?" Attitude
Auto Pilot System Goals: - full GCAS system. If my autopilot hits the ocean, my plane better be on fire.
-the classic gps stuff dialed to 11. Alt hold that works perfectly at every speed, autoheading that tracks a line on the floor, and a system that both levels roll and compensates for it. If I decide that my plane flies better on its side, the autopilot should agree.
-auto formation. Two reasons: 1, once I install everything else, this will be easy, and two, because a screenshot with 4 f35s in diamond formation would be epic.
-auto takeoff and landing. I'm not sure if this was shown yet, but my map display has every static airport in game coded into it. My dream is to be at one airport, click on another, and watch my plane do everything without me. Future plans to add carrier landings as well.
MFD goals. - map display. Full pan, zoom, and follow features (duh) as well as information overlays(weapon and navigation). Picture things like points of interest, laser designator(s?), IFF locations, and of course, airports.
-FCS display. Plane info. Easy as that. Fuel, battery, AOA, control positions, flight modes. Nice and simple.
-weapon display. My biggest planned compromise... I have 2 options here; I could build a fully proprietary standard and use home brewed weapons with amazing integration, or use a standardized approach ensuring compatibility. I chose the latter. I'm not the best at anything , and certainly not with weapons. I decides I'll leave that up to the community. That doesn't mean the weapon Page will be bad though. It's still going to auto group weapons by type, offer different firing modes, a wide suite of guidance types, and of course, a quality sequencer. This is what I worked on today and even though I still haven't started most of the features, the polish on the parts I have finished is definitely good enough for me.
-EW display. [REDACTED]. Jk of course. I'm not that multiplayer type so I don't really care if people take my EW systems. To be clear, there is 0% chance the public release is going to be fully featured, but it certainly wont need an ew pod. Planned features include radio sweeping/jamming, radio tracking, multi-standard IFF, datalink, frequency hopping, and depending on how ambitious I'm feeling, maybe some code breaking as well. Again, I'm not that multiplayer type, so I'll probably never see the benefit from these systems. But to have such a nice plane be spoiled by a radio guided missile would be a crime. Side note, currently there are exactly 0 antenna in the build, but I'm sure I'll find space somewhere...
Conclusion. Would you look at that! A list of goals so ambitious there's no chance he'll accomplish any of it! Yeah, probably. Nice to dream I guess. Anyway, here's the fun part: I'm easy to persuade, and I am shooting for every bell and whistle I can think of. That means if one of yall give me a sales pitch for a feature I should add, it will most likely end up on the list. Also if yall have standards or references you think I should take a look at, I will gladly do so.

2023.06.01 08:02 Lordofthe305 CPWA Octane 5-31-23

CPWA Octane 5-31-23
We open with a recap of last week's main event featuring Keith Yang and the Jordans (Elijah, Deron "Ron", and Cedric) taking on "The Number One Pick" LeJuan Jones and Ivan Markov. LeJuan announces the names of the other competitors for his team, who are revealed to be General Wade and Guerrilla God, the Soldiers of Misfortune. A brawl ensues throughout the main event, leading to a low blow from Ivan Markov and Brother Julius running a distraction, allowing LeJuan Jones to win the match with a Game Winner on Yang. After the match, General Wade and Guerrilla God double-team Keith Yang and double-powerbomb him through a table. General Wade, Guerrilla God, along with LeJuan Jones and Ivan Markov stand victorious over the prone Keith Yang.
The moment of silence ends and we open with a 30-second intro highlighting all of the stars of CPWA as The Roots' "BOOM" plays in the background. The intro ends with Shelton Jordan holding the CPWA Heavyweight Championship belt over his head. Pyro goes off in the arena for a few seconds, followed by cheering from the crowd.
Brian Kinsley: We welcome to CPWA Octane! We are coming to you live from Seattle, Washington! Brian Kinsley, Anthony Harris, and Sir Samuel Stewart, and we have a fantastic show for you tonight! We continue with the Super Junior Carnival, plus The Mortician will be in tag team action, and our main event, Shelton and Deron "Ron" Jordan take on General Wade and Guerrilla God, the Soldiers of Misfortune. Let's get right to the action!
We cut to the ring.
Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for...
Crowd: ONE FALL!
GACKT's "Redemption" plays in the arena
Announcer: Introducing first, from Osaka, Japan, she is Shiori Yoshimura.
Brian Kinsley: Shiori Yoshimura won the CPWA Women's International Championship from "The Iron Maiden" Mary Addams at Fatal Alliance in what seems to be the end of their rivalry.
Sir Samuel Stewart: Just because you say it's the end of something, doesn't mean it won't pick back up. I'm sure "The Iron Maiden" will be waiting to get her shot again, even if she has her sights set on going for the CPWA Women's Championship.
Johann Sebastian Bach's Air on G String plays in the arena.
Announcer: And her opponent, from the posh hills of the Hamptons, she is Priscilla Pierce.
Brian Kinsley: We haven't seen Priscilla Pierce in a few months, and that's because she was touring Japan and Puerto Rico.
Anthony Harris: She could've sent us a postcard or two about her time away from here, but now she's got a big test ahead of her.
Match 1: Shiori Yoshimura vs. Priscilla Pierce
A decent, if not solid opener that saw Priscilla Pierce get some offense early, but Shiori shrugged it off, went on the offense herself, and didn't look back. Give Priscilla credit for weathering the storm and even trying to fight back, but it wasn't enough as Shiori ended the match with a Spinning Bison Bomb.
3 out of 5 stars.
We cut backstage and we see Kevin Meyers interviewing Rory Irvine. Rory says that his first-round victory against Kelly Lawton was no fluke and he plans to go all the way just to prove that he belongs with the best in the Cruiserweight division. Rory then heads out for his match.
We cut to the locker room area and we see Brother Julius approaching the Soldiers of Misfortune. Brother Julius tells General Wade and Guerrilla God that he has the plan to eliminate the Jordans and Keith Yang altogether, courtesy of "The Number One Pick" LeJuan Jones. General Wade tells Brother Julius that he and Guerrilla God are all ears.
We cut back to the ring.
Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall and it is a quarterfinal match for the CPWA Super Junior Carnival Tournament.
The O'Reillys and Paddyhats' "Barrels of Whiskey" plays in the arena.
Announcer: Introducing first, from Dublin, Ireland, he is Rory Irvine.
Brian Kinsley: Rory Irvine has been riding a high wave of momentum ever since beating CPWA Kelly Lawton in the first round of the Super Junior Carnival.
Sir Samuel Stewart: The young lad definitely is feeling himself as the youth would say, but let's hope it doesn't come back to bite him.
80s Synth Track Nightscapes plays in the arena.
Announcer: And his opponent, from Los Angeles, California, he is one-half of StarrVice, Mark Starr.
Brian Kinsley: Mark Starr and MAGNUM Koyama had a decent match but it was ruined by the interference of Silver Eyes.
Anthony Harris: Then after that, Silver Eyes and MAGNUM Koyama were brawling thereafter. I'm sure these two are gonna bash in the ring again.
Match 2: CPWA Super Junior Carnival Tournament: Quarterfinal: Rory Irvine vs. Mark Starr
Another decent match that saw some high-flying, technical holds, and a lot of hard-hitting striking. Mark Starr had control of the match, keeping Irvine grounded. Irvine started to make some offense of his own, but Starr kept him at bay. As the match ramped up, CPWA Cruiserweight Champion Kelly Lawton looked to get even against Rory, only to knock out Starr by accident. Rory would get the upper hand on Lawton, knocking him out and hitting the Celtic Crucifix Pin on Starr to win the match. Rory Irvine advances to the semi-finals where he will take on Money Mark or Owen Benoit-Jericho.
3 out of 5 stars.
We cut to a graphic hyping the other quarterfinal matches of the Super Junior Carnival Tournament, including "The Korean Idol" Han Sang-Hoon taking on Steve Odenkirk, Ricky Vice taking on Devon Gatlin-Tyson, and Money Mark taking on Owen Benoit-Jericho, which is next.
***Commercial Break***
We come back from commercial break and we see Kelly Lawton groggily walking backstage. He bumps into Lord Phillip Byron IV, who scolds him for not getting his payback on Rory Irvine. "The Iron Maiden" Mary Addams approaches Kelly and tells him better luck next time.
We go to the locker room area and we see Shelton and Deron "Ron" Jordan getting ready for their main event tag match. Shelton says that he wants payback for what the Soldiers of Misfortune did to Keith Yang. Ron agrees and says that the Soldiers of Misfortune will get beaten up tonight.
We cut back to the ring.
Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall and it is a quarterfinal match for the CPWA Super Junior Carnival Tournament.
Almighty 3's "To The Other MC's" plays in the arena.
Announcer: Introducing first, from Opa-Locka, Florida, he is Money Mark!
Brian Kinsley: Money Mark pulled off a miracle against Adam Odenkirk last week on Octane. He managed to survive the onslaught from the first round.
Sir Samuel Stewart: Unfortunately, there is more onslaught on the way, and it's not gonna be pretty.
Blood Brothers' "Replica" plays in the arena
Announcer: And his opponent, representing The Commonwealth, from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, he is Owen Benoit-Jericho.
Brian Kinsley: Owen Benoit-Jericho had one of the best matches, if not the best match of the first round as he defeated Angel Vega.
Anthony Harris: That was a hard-hitting match and it could've gone either way. Let's see how this match pans out.
Match 2: CPWA Super Junior Carnival Tournament: Quarterfinal: Money Mark vs. Owen Benoit-Jericho
This was the match of the night so far, and perhaps the best match of the quarterfinals. Owen took control of the match, using his amateur grappling and technical skills to ground Money Mark. Owen then used his submission holds to weaken Money Mark, only for him to survive and reach the ropes. Owen's relentlessness continued with German suplexes, but Money Mark managed to flip out of the fifth German suplex, leading to his offense. Money Mark was flying all over the ring, hitting Owen with a series of dropkicks, hurricanranas, and head scissor takedowns. Owen tried to go for the cross-face, but Money Mark hit the Moneymaker to get the win. Money Mark advances to the semi-final to face Rory Irvine.
4 out of 5 stars.
We then see a one-minute hype package for The Mortician. The hype package ends and we cut back to the ring.
Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall with a 25-minute time limit.
An organ cover to Runaway Casket plays in the arena.
Announcer: Introducing first, from Resting Peace Funeral Home, he is the CPWA Television Champion The Mortician!
Brian Kinsley: The Mortician made quite a surprising return at Fatal Alliance when he not only challenged for the CPWA Television Championship, but also won it!
Sir Samuel Stewart: I knew I felt an eerie chill in the arena for some reason and there he was.
Hp Boyz - Engineers. plays in the arena.
Announcer: His tag team partner, from Maui, Hawaii, he is Kahuna Maiavia.
Brian Kinsley: Kahuna Maiavia has kept busy in his native Hawaii, training local wrestlers and touring New Zealand.
Sir Samuel Stewart: He told me he found some promising trainees in Christchurch and Auckland. Hope to see them in CPWA one day.
Nu Breed's "Florida" plays in the arena
Announcer: And their opponent, introducing first, accompanied by his alligator Sunshine, from the Sunshine State, he is the CPWA Television Champion, "Florida Man" Gary Strange
Gary Strange takes out a microphone.
Gary Strange: Now before I go in that ring and make mince meat out of the both of you to feed Sunshine, I have a tag team partner that I think you are familiar with, Mortician, and just like me, he's seeing red.
The lights in the arena suddenly turn red as Aka-Manto Chase Theme plays in the arena. Aka-Manto rushes through the crowd and attacks The Mortician.
Match 4: The Mortician and Kahuna Maiavia vs. "Florida Man" Gary Strange and Aka-Manto
This felt more like a tornado tag team match rather than an actual tag team match as all four competitors brawled all through ringside. Gary Strange would isolate Kahuna Maiavia away from Mortician, allowing Aka-Manto to beat the living daylights out of him. After an utter brawl throughout ringside, Aka-Manto won the match with Redrum on the Mortician to get the win.
3 out of 5 stars.
After the arena lights go out and we hear an ominous female voice.
Ominous Female Voice: Pretty Boy...oh Pretty Boy...punish...them...all!
Glitter Wasteland's "Cold War (Nightcrawler Remix)" plays in the arena as Pretty Boy makes his way to the ring. Pretty Boy glares at Aka-Manto and then at the prone Mortician. Pretty Boy and Aka-Manto viciously assault Mortician. Pretty Boy then performs a chokeslam and tombstone piledriver on Mortician.
We cut to a graphic hyping the other quarterfinal matches of the Super Junior Carnival Tournament, including "The Korean Idol" Han Sang-Hoon taking on Steve Odenkirk, Ricky Vice taking on Devon Gatlin-Tyson, and the main event between Shelton and Deron "Ron" Jordan taking on the Soldiers of Misfortune.
***Commercial Break***
We come back from commercial break and we see Elijah and Cedric Jordan talking to each other as they are on their way to meeting Shelton and Ron. Brother Julius approaches them with a "message" from LeJuan Jones. Brother Julius slaps Cedric as he and Elijah chase Brother Julius. The Soldiers of Misfortune ambush Elijah and Cedric, knocking them out.
We cut to the ring.
Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall and it is a quarterfinal match for the CPWA Super Junior Carnival Tournament.
Rain's "It's Raining" begins to play in the arena
Announcer: Introducing first, from Seoul, South Korea, he is one half of the CPWA Cruiserweight Tag Team Champions, "The Korean Idol" Han Sang-Hoon!
Brian Kinsley: "The Korean Idol" Han Sang-Hoon put on a stellar match against Mexico's El Colibri in what was surely a high-flying battle.
Sir Samuel Stewart: I swore if I blinked even once, I would've missed something crazy. Those two put on a tremendous match.
Franz Ferdinand's "Take Me Out" plays in the arena.
Announcer: And his opponent, from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, he is Steve Odenkirk.
Brian Kinsley: Steve Odenkirk put on a masterful performance against Sharnaz Khan in the first round and looks do so again.
Anthony Harris: He's got skills on the mat, and he can even surprise you with his high-flying. Watch out for him if he makes it all the way.
Match 5: CPWA Super Junior Carnival Tournament: Quarterfinal: "The Korean Idol" Han Sang-Hoon vs. Steve Odenkirk
There were lots of technical exchanges between the two competitors, a bit of anything you can do, I can do better. It was evenly matched early in the contest, but "The Korean Idol" took over the match and didn't look back. Han Sang-Hoon hit the K-Pop Drop on Steve to get the win. "The Korean Idol" Han Sang-Hoon advances to the semi-finals where he will take on either Ricky Vice or Devon Gatlin-Tyson.
3 out of 5 stars.
Backstage, we see Shelton and Ron getting past several referees and road agents as they look at the prone bodies of Elijah and Cedric. Shelton and Ron ask the referees and road agents what happened, to which none of the referees and road agents knew what occurred. Unbeknownst to everyone, "The Number One Pick" LeJuan Jones and Brother Julius were standing in the background, watching everything unfold.
We cut to the ring.
Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall and it is a quarterfinal match for the CPWA Super Junior Carnival Tournament.
80s Synth Track Nightscapes plays in the arena.
Announcer: Introducing first, from Los Angeles, California, he is one-half of StarrVice, Ricky Vice.
Brian Kinsley: Earlier, Mark Starr could not reach the semifinals, but Ricky Vice may have a chance to do so.
Anthony Harris: I think he has what it takes, but so does his opponent.
Leo Arnaud's "Bulger's Dream" plays in the arena
Announcer: Introducing first, representing The Olympians, from Jacksonville, Florida, Devon Gatlin-Tyson.
Brian Kinsley: Devon Gatlin-Tyson is still making a big statement that he belongs at the top of the Cruiserweight division. He defeated "The Hi-Fli Kid" Jerome Evans in the first round, albeit with help from Miles Orozco and Chip Day.
Sir Samuel Stewart: There you go speaking hearsay, Brian. Jerome Evans got distracted and that allowed DGT to get the victory. He does allow me to call him DGT right?
Match 6: CPWA Super Junior Carnival Tournament: Quarterfinal: Ricky Vice vs. Devon Gatlin-Tyson
Earlier in the night, Money Mark and Owen Benoit-Jericho had a stellar match, but this one stole the show. Both Ricky and DGT were pulling off hurricanranas, poison ranas, headscissor takedowns, and even diving planchas on each other. The intensity was truly ramped up by the number of striking and counterstriking attacks both competitors were pulling off. Ricky looked to have the match won the Vice Lock, but Miguel Sandoval Jr. distracted the referee on behalf of DGT. This allowed Gatlin-Tyson to comeback and surprise Ricky with a cradle pin attempt, leading to a split-second DDT to get the win. Devon Gatlin-Tyson advances to the semifinals, where he will face "The Korean Idol" Han Sang-Hoon.
We cut to a graphic hyping the main event between Shelton and Deron "Ron" Jordan taking on the Soldiers of Misfortune.
***Commercial Break***
Brian Kinsley: Next week, CPWA will be in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada for Octane. The semifinals for the CPWA Super Junior Carnival Tournament are set as Rory Irvine takes on Money Mark, and "The Korean Idol" Han Sang-Hoon takes on Devon Gatlin Tyson. Plus, The Mortician will be in tag team action as he teams up with Mangod against Pretty Boy and Aka-Manto.
Announcer: Our main event is scheduled for...
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth's "The Creator" plays in the arena.
Announcer: Introducing first, from Miami, Florida, the team of Shelton, Deron "Ron" The Jordans.

Shyne's "Bad Boyz" plays in the arena.
Announcer: And their opponents, from the Trenches, the team of General Wade and Guerrilla God, the Soldiers of Misfortune.
Main Event: The Jordans (Shelton and Deron "Ron") vs. The Soldiers of Misfortune (General Wade and Guerrilla God)
As great as the rest of the card was, this match was a blemish in the form of a not so good, but not so terrible match. All four competitors beat the living crap out of each other. At one point, the Jordans had the upper hand, only for Ivan Markov interfered in the match, taking out Ron. This left Shelton at the mercy of the Soldiers of Misfortune as Guerrilla God pulled off Guerilla In The Mist (Modified Gun Stun) on Shelton, leading to General Wade to get the pin.
2 out of 5 stars.
After the match, the Soldiers of Misfortune, along with Ivan Markov assaulted Shelton some more and put him triple powerbombed him through a table as "The Number One Pick" LeJuan Jones and Brother Julius look on in approval as Octane fades to black.

2023.06.01 07:41 Spectral_Coen0 31 [M4F] 7 years single and it sucks at times.

Honestly where do I even begin with the whole world of dating and relationships? I have a hard time putting myself out there because I've been hurt and taken advantage of so much by women that it's hard to put my trust and let my guard down
I've been single for seven long years, part of that is my own fault and the other is just no one wanting to put up with me whatsoever honestly it's tiresome
I've got low grade depression, social anxiety, I don't drive, currently live at home, looking for work in a place where everyone is hiring but no one bothers to.
I've been cheated on, abused emotionally, verbally and mentally. Humiliated by their friends at a party, lied to, dumped on a family members funeral after they told me they cheated on me several times, used me for money to pay for things they needed.
I'm honest, easy to talk to, deeply understanding, sweetheart, genuine, respectful, sarcastically witty with a smartass sense of humor, enthusiastic about cuddling, can write a sweet letter expressing my feelings about the individual that I'm dating, buyer of flowers, and honestly just someone who flawed but doesn't go cheating or abusive of any kind.
For some reason as a gamer, horror movie fan and geek people see this whole aspect and just don't bother.
It's hard to explain to people that yeah I've been single for seven years, friend zoned 99% of the time, never complimented or spoken to as much.
Just feel like I'm genuinely not meant to date at all.

2023.06.01 06:31 tonysrabidllama Friendly vs interested

The past few questions I have asked have been shitcanned for being fake. They weren’t. I’m not and neither is this one:
I’ve had a crush on this woman for years. We met again at a mutual friends funeral (like you do). We sat together during the service. Do the whole, “great to see you”/ hug thing when it was done- thought that was it. Later that evening she calls and says she’s going for drinks with more mutual friends ( dead guy excluded) and invited me to come. After a few she and I are the only ones left. Do the hug thing one more time. I go home. I thought that was nice and that would be it.
Long story short, that was 3 months ago. She texts me several times a day and we have met a few times for drinks or to hang out. The past week she kisses me. This may sound naive but I have no idea if she is interested or being nice? Are we dating or old friends meeting for a drink? While some of you are thinking I’m stupid of asking why do need to label it- can I ask other people out? If yes, do I tell her about the date? If not why? She’s hinted to the fact that she doesn’t know what we are doing but I’m horrible at hints. Are they sarcastic hints or even worse, what if they aren’t hints?
Some women kiss and it means nothing. Others are being flirtatious.
The whole point to this question is, can I grab her ass, pull her towards me and give her a real kiss or do I keep playing the I don’t know what’s going on game ( because I really don’t know what’s going on)

2023.06.01 06:31 slightlyclean Am I taking too many days off? (Sick + Funeral)

My uncle suddenly passed away earlier this week, and a day later, I got COVID. I’ve been working from home and taking half days since Monday. My manager knows I’m sick and I took a half day off today to rest, I did not tell them about my family member’s passing. The private service for family is next Friday and the funeral is Saturday so I would like to take the day off to fly out and attend both days. We were close so I would like to go.
I am however a feeling lost and scared to ask my manager for Friday off. I’m worried that I’m missing too many days of work while on probation (I’ve been here for almost 4 months and probation is 6 months).
Any advice would be appreciated.

2023.06.01 06:15 tubularbones Failed Casket Delivery

Hello fellow funeral service workers! Story below. tl;dr, how are casket delivery people penalized for damaging caskets? No passes, or two-strike kinda deal?
A delivery truck from my funeral homes primary casket provider had stopped by earlier today to drop off a poplar casket for a service 1 week from now. I was in the apartment above the FH, where I live, when I heard a huge bang outside. It was then I saw from my window that the delivery person had accidentally dropped the casket off the truck lift, missing the church trucks completely. I walked into the office to notify a director what just happened, and then proceeded downstairs to talk to the delivery person. By the time I exited the building, they had already lifted the casket back into the truck and left without notifying the staff of their error.
Luckily the replacement is already scheduled for tomorrow with plenty of time to spare. Strangely enough, I’ve been terribly concerned if they’re going to be fired or not for dropping a ~$2500 casket, and merely made this post to ask if any insiders may know the likely fate for this poor soul?

2023.06.01 05:34 Arsenic-Arsenal Vyvanse and xanax

F-ing Hell. I just need to get this out my system via writing. Newly widow at füçking 29 yo... N2/IH since 2022 - but started way back before. Now I take Vyvanse in the morning (20mg) plus at noon (10mg) AND Xanax (0.25mg) with Zopiclone (7.5mg) at bedtime.
Today I had the wonderful idea to take one of my extra 10mg of vyvanse (total of 40mg for the day) at noon to tackle Norm's life insurance claim via customer service (dreadful).Well I really needed it because after that phone call I was helping my mother in law and being her shoulder to cry on.
After that I had so much energy that I felt like the roadrunner, going here and there and back to here again because I forgot the spare keys I just bought on the store's counter. I also forgot to eat until 7pm. Yay Vyvanse (said sarcastically).
So now it's pass midnight. I took my new fav combo of xanax and zopiclone at 10h30. Usually it would have kicked in, making me relaxed and sleepy in 20 mins. But not tonight. I'm tired but physically not sleepy. I think it's the extra 10 mg, the residual stress from the life claim and being conscious that Xanax wasn't my Sleep doctor preferred choice of medication for me. It was my GP's choice, and they didn't even bother hear my concerns in regards to xanax-vyvanse interactions... Thankfully my Sleep doctor gave me a second opinion. In my situation, I can take Xanax for the first month and after that look for a more appropriate medication for my anxiety while maintaining my energy for the legal work (2-3 months of paperwork infront on me..)
I have 10 extra 10mg of Vyvanse per month in case I need to drive or work late ~ doctor approved prior to my hellish new life ~. I won't be taking an extra dose again! I might have to cut out the 10 mg at noon to see if my sleep is better. I barely move now, just a blob of grief on the couch. I can only tackle one task a date without my second vyvanse, but it might be the only trade off I can do to feel the xanax and Zopiclone and sleep. Heck, what's the point of rushing it, Norm's dead and nothing can help with that.
. . .
I love you soo much Norm. I'm holding on because I know you wouldn't want your parents to deal with the bureaucracy of it all, funeral home, lawyer, banks, life insurance claim. I'll get it all done and I'll make the necessary funeral arrangements for your parents and for my own too.
. . .
If you made it to here, please get a will. Even a holographic one at the least. Norm and I didn't even think of that at 29.... And thank god I have my in-laws behind me.

2023.06.01 05:18 Bron147 I lost my mom 3 days ago and I have no idea what to do

I got a questions for those who are only child and can relate and give me advice.
I lost my mom 3 days ago and she was all the family I had I'm 25 going on to 26 in June and while we have many family friends and my girl and my best friend were their for me I still feel alone. My father and me hate each other and he hates her didn't show up to the funeral.
My question is did I do good. My mom died at a party she was a very sickly lady and I always told her to chill and relax and to take care but she always loved to party even at 64. She drank some vodica and took some zans and didn't wake up. I got the valley at 3am on Saturday and we warped everything up by Tuesday.
Me and my mom were dirt poor in and out of friends homes some times hitting a good streak and living in apt. But once I moved away to find a better job to help her she decided to live with the closet friends we had that were family.
I was always busy so I didn't see her much and she would always call me. But I worked over time saving up a little dime to give her a life she deserved. The last time we spoke it was 3 hours before she died. The last thing she told me was that she loved me very much and couldn't wait to see me next week and I told her the same.
But I feel nothing but regret and hatred and shame for myself cause I couldn't do more she died poor. And I gave her money as much as I could range every month between 200$ to 3k for 4 years but I was alone doing this by myself.
What I think I'm asking for was did I do good was she proud of me, everyone says she alway talked about me since I out classed all the other kids I am the most successful having my own business and was planning to buy a house soon to bring her with me etc. But why do I feel like I failed I always wished for a older sibling to help me but my parent silpt after I was born.
I have a older sister from my dad side who loves my mom as much as me but she lives in Cuba and didn't have papers.

2023.06.01 04:49 throwaway-golden Any recommendations?

I (21FTM) went to school right out of HS to be a funeral director, went through the whole rigamarole and nobody will give me or any other new directors apparently a chance. I was fired after two months for no reason (legal in my state). Too much at stake, no room for mistakes. Hated it.
Worked at Menards for like six months and found a better opportunity at Lowe's. Liked it. But I think I bit off more than I could chew for my first job outside university.
Worked at Lowe's for a few months before I found a university study relevant opportunity at a funeral home. Liked Lowe's.
Left that one after 6 months because the guy that owned the place was ...lots of expletives and made me feel unsafe.
Got an internship at a FH elsewhere, loved that job and made lots of friends but I was essentially just the guy in the back and the company didn't want to hire me on as a director. Opportunity ended.
Got my funeral director gig. Moved for it and everything. Immediately fired for no reason
Working door to door sales at spectrum. Hate it. I feel incredibly unsafe. See: my post on spectrum.
Any suggestions for jobs I might actually like based on this information? I've had more unpleasant experiences than pleasant so it's hard to judge.

2023.06.01 04:47 FoolishMortal-1000 Left my house and went to a viewing all without OCD taking over

I haven't left my house in a week because my OCD episode has been so so bad. I wasn't eating for DAYS and was bed bound, I literally wasn't even using the bathroom because I couldn't get myself to stand up.
Today I had to attend a viewing for a family friend who tragically passed away. I do not, DO NOT, do well with viewings or death in general. My OCD gets kicked up to 100% when I have to go to the cemetery, or hospital, or a funeral - anything to do with death.
I was nervous to even get out of bed today, but I ate breakfast, I showered and got dressed, drove an hour away from my home (my safe space) to get to the viewing, and was able to pay my respects and spend time with family all without being consumed by intrusive thoughts and crippling peril. I did it!
Now that's not to say that I'm not a bit anxious now (why didn't you panic, are you lacking empathy? Are you a sociopath? Did your brain just finally snap and now you aren't able to feel ANY emotions?) but I'm not panicking and I'm not consumed by the thoughts. I'm very proud of myself and I hope I can continue on this path of healing.

2023.06.01 04:03 Objective_Ad1269 Owner going away for a sad occasion. How often should we update them?

We had a last minute booking from our repeat client for almost 3 weeks. She said they just discovered her dad got diagnosed with late stage cancer and it’s spreading fast. Owner said they might extend the trip, in case the worst case scenario happens where she has to plan his funeral.
Obviously this is not a happy occasion and we can tell she’s really heartbroken going back home this time. The question is… how often should we update the owner with photos and videos? This is day 5 in the trip and she hasn’t responded to any of our updates (she’s usually very responsive). We usually include a “happy caption” with the photos, but it feels inappropriate this time ☹️
Just wanted to be mindful but also assuring them their baby is doing fine!
