In conclusion we do not deserve the league

Holy fuck how did umtiti stay on the pitch for 90 minutes !!! He couldn't sprint to save his life!
Author: Dark-X Score: 174 pts Source
Positives
  • Rakitic still amazing
  • Puig proving he is better then even Arthur in a very short period.
  • MAtS good as always, par the freekick.
  • Pique is a rock!
  • Suarez took his chances extremely well!

Areas to improve
  • Umtiti has been really bad & should not start another game for us as long as Lenglet & Pique are fit.
  • Vidal with another poor 90mins in a row. How is Quique not seeing this?
  • Messi, afte an electric 70mins, switched off after the 2nd goal & it hindered our attack.
  • The referee. It's part of the game but sometimes it's a bit too much.

It’s sad to see the state of Umtiti, once he was an invaluable piece of this defense, and now he’s dropped a horrid, horrid performance when we couldn’t afford it. Honestly think that if Lenglet had played we would have won this game, but I understand the need to rotate.
Author: i798 Score: 96 pts Source
Kudos to Rakitic, Semedo and Puig for playing their hearts out today. Was a good match even though we failed defensively in the second half. Questionable subs again by Setien and they were late too. Welp its looking grim and I've personally lost hope that we win the league this season. Hope i'm wrong though.
Author: Itaney Score: 59 pts Source
Setien shit the bed on this one. His substitutions literally ruined the game for us, nevermind the fact he started Umtiti over Lenglet. Our defence was so leaky it was actually depressing to watch. And despite that, he made no changes to rectify it.
On the other hand, Rakitic’s great performance was severely let down by him being at 100% fault for the first goal we conceded. I would go to jail for expressing my thoughts on Umtiti today.
Author: BeastCoast Score: 56 pts Source
Umtiti shouldn't see the pitch for the rest of this season. His poor positioning could have easily cost multiple goals today if Celta had been more clinical and we can't drop another point this season.
Really happy with Semedo, Puig, and Rakitic though.
Some people might try to blame Rakitic for the first goal, but a bad pass in midfield isn't causing a goal if your defenders are in position and not jogging.
Author: NoseSeeker Score: 36 pts Source
After coronavirus I have a new outlook on life. I try not to get too upset about things that don't matter.
The fact that La Liga is out of reach doesn't matter. I honestly don't care if we lose every game from now on. This season was never going to be successful given that none of the changes that needed to happen last summer actually happened.
What does matter is that this was one of the most entertaining games I've seen all season. Riqui was just so much fun to watch, and I'm praying our stupid fucking board doesn't sell him and he gets to gel with Messi.
The other bright spot was that we played with intensity for 45m away from home before losing the plot. If only we can refresh the squad and get that to 70+ minutes and fix some of the mental fragility we will be in much better shape next season.
Im not holding my breath for anything special as long as Bartomeu is in charge, but I'm hopeful that at least I can stop being bored to tears every game.
Author: gentblaugrana Score: 33 pts Source
You only truly notice how good Busquets is when he's not in the squad. Today it was too easy for Celta to find those pockets in between our defence and midfield. Busi usually sweeps everything up.
Umtiti just isn't the same anymore. It's sad because how good he was prior to injury, but I think we need to move on.
Author: 1ngK Score: 21 pts Source
What a defensive shit show
That was just a good finish from Aspas, with that curve it's surely going through the wall, if anything that was a poor organisation from GK. Griezmann blended slightly inward, but look at better angle that ball was simply going in, even if he jumped straightly that still going into the net.
But yeah Mats can't be blamed so Griezmann takes the shit again lmao
If it wasn't Griezmann closing Nolito down Barca can't even get 1 point.
Author: iLucifux Score: 19 pts Source
Umtiti's lack of positioning hurt us a lot. That free kick was a joke, how can someone place a wall like that? Umtiti demolished his career for that WC medal, which might still remain his best achievement.
We had so many good attacking moments which were entirely spoiled by the disaster defensive efforts. We missed Longlegs, his positioning was always brilliant.
Author: Last_Lorien Score: 18 pts Source
To err is human but to persist is fucking diabolical (double cit.).
WHY THE 80’ SUBS??
After Celta had already had 4, so fresh legs all around. And for the third, fourth game running!
I mean, they say “Fail. Fail again. Fail better” but for the same sore spot to be exploited over and over, that’s just infuriating.
edit: also, I gave Umtiti the benefit of the doubt and never said anything too bad or definitive about him, even though god knows he gave us plenty of grounds to, but I'm done, as far as I'm concerned he can be shipped off to wherever he pleases.

2020.09.28 20:43 BlancheFromage Lying SGI leader asshole attempting to spin the excommunication: "Gone was the drumbeat by the monastics for more members and more money." So whose fault is it NOW??

You can read a brief excerpt here - I suspect this refers to Ikeda's "changed our direction" visit from early 1990, shortly before Ikeda's excommunication by Nichiren Shoshu. That's the "guidance" that precipitated the collapse of SGI-USA, you may recall, but here's that excerpt - it starts after a page omitted from this preview:
...was to become happy; that Buddhism is about having compassion and consideration for all people; that it emphasizes living a balanced life in accordance with the Middle Way; and that practitioners are free to determine the direction of their lives, based on faith, on what is in their respective hearts, and on how they choose as individuals to respond to their mentor.
Notice that "respond to their mentor" is a GIVEN in his scenario. None of that is fair game without "how they choose as individuals to respond to their mentor". What of us who didn't WANT any "mentor" and specifically not THAT one??
We left.
Let's continue:
Within the year, Williams stepped down as general director.
No, he was FIRED. BY IKEDA, who publicly mocked him.
The newly coined SGI-USA became further free to develop into the healthy organization it ultimately became following the excommunication of the millions of Soka Gakkai members by Nichiren Shoshu in 1991.
WHERE did it "become" that? It never did! It's never BEEN!
And notice that he's perpetuating the SGI lie that EVERYONE was ALL excommunicated on the same date. No. Ikeda and Soka Gakkai President Akiya were personally excommunicated, and the Soka Gakkai was removed from Nichiren Shoshu's list of legitimate lay organizations. THAT's IT. It was only 6 or 7 years later that Nichiren Shoshu went ahead and excommunicated everyone from the Soka Gakkai and SGI who hadn't transferred their membership over to a Nichiren Shoshu temple, thus indicating their desire to continue to practice with Nichiren Shoshu. Until that point in 1991, all the Soka Gakkai and SGI members were members of BOTH organizations. Now that they were separating, Nichiren Shoshu expected those SGI members who wished to continue to be Nichiren Shoshu members to make that clear by transferring their membership over - and apparently, the Soka Gakkai lost hundreds of thousands of households in that debacle. Here in the US, the effect was not as pronounced because there were only a few Nichiren Shoshu temples (3? NY, LA, and Chicago) and so few SGI-USA members had any sort of connection with the Nichiren Shoshu priests. SGI had deliberately kept us separate from the priests, as well.
The SGI really lied to us all about this, and they're continuing to lie about it. It's a fundamentally dishonest organization - because it's a CULT. They can't afford to tell the truth - about anything.
Gone was the drumbeat by the monastics for more members and more money.
ORLY? Please explain WHO is responsible for these, then:
SANTA MONICA, Calif., Sept. 16–17 [2017]— Now that the one-year countdown to the 50,000 Lions of Justice Festival has begun, the SGI-USA has distilled its focus into a single powerful determination:
Each SGI-USA member of any age introduces 1 youth to the practice and ensures that he or she attends the 50,000 Lions of Justice Festival.
BANG that drum!
Such was the united conclusion of the Central Executive Committee and Executive Council Meeting, which convened Sept. 16–17 at the SGI-USA Headquarters in Santa Monica, California, to affirm the national organization’s 2018 activity goals and focus.
Oh, well, so long as they're united I guess that makes a difference...
The aim was born during the September SGI Youth Training Course in Tokyo, where, during a Q&A session with Soka Gakkai President Minoru Harada, an SGI-USA youth representative asked how they could help members of all ages joyfully engage in the campaign to gather 50,000 Lions of Justice in 2018.
Shakubuku! Shakubuku! Shakubuku! More members! More members! More members!
Members who introduce one youth to the practice will receive an “I Awakened One Lion” button that they can proudly wear in solidarity with the youth gathering next fall.
Awards! For those who get MORE MEMBERS!
In a joint letter from the SGI-USA national leaders, they shared that accomplishing the 50,000 goal would require a “laser focus” on introducing and helping tens of thousands of youth to develop their faith, practice and study between now and next fall.
Drumline
“Between now and the festival, we have to awaken 100 youth every single day who are not yet part of our movement. So here’s the question: Is this activity going to activate one of those 100 youth today?” SGI publication
Means:

MORE MEMBERS!!!!!

DRUM SOLO
So what's the problem here? IF the pressure to shakubuku was all because of Nichiren Shoshu, WHY OH WHY is it STILL such a cornerstone of the Ikeda cult experience?? It's constant.
In the early 2000s one of the biggest names in SGI-USA visited our area for a major meeting. I brought along a non-member friend, and afterwards I brought him over to the leader to introduce him. The leader was just like "oh hello" and then abruptly turns to me to say "Pleeeeease do shakubukuuuuuuu!" That was it...literally. Wtf?! Source
And what of THIS??
"Thank you, members from San Francisco, for taking care of the exchange group from the Kansai region. If I flatter like this, I know I can get a lot more donations for Kofu Fund, and I say this in a low voice. Oh, heavens! don't translate what I said." (to the interpreter) (January 27th, 1993 at the Joint General Meeting between the US SGI and Kansai region) Source
Yano recounts a New Year's Gongyo in the 80's when he and Takeiri (who btw also has left the Gakkai) visited Pres. Ikeda. As they exchanged pleasantries, a national leader came to report how much zaimu contributions were collected that morning. Pres. Ikeda was pleased but insisted to the leader that still more should be possible; the importance of zaimu must be drilled in to the members. "How could he have changed so much?" Yano recalls thinking to himself as he witnessed this exchange. Source
Back to the book:
Away went Nichiren's tooth, along with other mysterious and illogical rituals, including the fetish of the Dai-Gohonzon.
Right. So we're to believe that the Three Presidents of the Soka Gakkai, the ETERNAL MENTORS, were illogical and stupid? That everyone in SGI was lying to us all about the importance of the Dai-Gohonzon??
Remember - the Dai-Gohonzon was all-important!
Our faith does not exist apart from the Dai-Gohonzon of the High Sanctuary. - Ikeda, Seikyo shimbun, Nov. 8, 1978
"When all is said and done, if you don't go on Tozan yourself and pray to the Dai-Gohonzon, your faith will not mature." (The Collected Lectures of Josei Toda, vol I, p. 112)
Oh, there's loads more like those, too!
SGI changing major doctrine, after decades of insisting that "Nichiren Shoshu is holding the Dai-Gohonzon hostage".
That backpedal is coming just a little too late to be convincing.
Well, eager investigators, I happen to have a copy of this book, so while I'm at an appointment this afternoon, Ima gonna be getting the rest of that first part and some more juicy lies for us all to laugh about!! :D

2020.09.28 01:39 GreatAwakening888 THE SPELL IS BROKEN: Flight 93, The Truth About How Q Patriots Saved America From Cult 93's Kill Shot [part 3]

For those who have been following Trump's comms closely, you are well aware of his usage of The Phoenix Principle, which is how he takes his enemy's weapons from [them], transforms [them], and then uses it against [them]. The Phoenix Principle, represented symbolically and metaphysically via numbers, is not only about reversing [their] negatively charged numbers (e.g. reversing 93 to 39). That is phase one. Phase two is about 'flipping' the number. To tell us that Cult 93 has been completely defeated, the completed Phoenix Principle designation of 93 reversed and flipped is '36' (see graphic HERE).
There are a lot of theories about Flight 93, and what really happened. Some claim there were no people aboard and the backstories fabricated, others claim there were people aboard. And others claim there were government officials who had chartered it since so few passengers were aboard a large 757.
The 'official' numbers are: 33 'passengers' + 7 'crew' = 40, but there were 4 'hijackers' + 33 'passengers' = 37 = HELL = HEX, and all together 33 + 4 + 7 = 44 = KILL. Some claim it was headed to the Capitol Dome, others say the White House. Symbolically that would have been logical from [their] perspective, but the 'attacks' were also about opening portals, which can be done via Satanic rituals like Crowley did, or via highly explosive, nuclear-level disturbances in the physical plane of Earth because it disrupts or 'tears' the dimensional barrier. I have no idea which theories are correct, but if I am decoding the comms correctly, Maestro Trump gives us an astonishing account of what Cult 93 actually intended for Flight 93 and how American Patriots prevented [their] ultimate kill-shot attempt.
VI. FLIGHT 93 - THE TRUTH ABOUT HOW Q PATRIOTS SAVED AMERICA
As we decode these messages, it can be helpful to keep the screenshot of the post we are decoding in an adjacent tab or separate window. Conversely, scroll down to the end of each puzzle-piece section to see the post and decode process side-by-side. However, the slides do not have all of the information contained here in the text, so best to refer to both for the full pictures.
At 10:56a, (screenshot HERE) (a retweet of the WhiteHouse's 10:50a Tweet) Maestro Trump provides the first of five clips from his speech at the Flight 93 Memorial Park. It was posted 194 minutes after the previous puzzle piece (194 = SEPTEMBER ELEVENTH = ENEMY OF HUMANITY); or 3 hours and 14 minutes (see Q314 screenshot HERE). Q314 Be the autists we know you are. It's about the BREAK. Seem relevant? BREAK = 37 = HEX. Do you see it? Confirmation that this is all about 'breaking' the September Eleventh hex on humanity.
The next thing to observe is the timestamp of 0:36 seconds, which represents not only the reversal of 93, but also the flipping/defeating, i.e. The Phoenix Principle (revisit the image HERE).
While the 'official' story is that Flight 93 was poised to attack the Capitol Building or The White House, Maestro Trump is seemingly telling us otherwise, that it was headed for the nuclear power plant at Three Mile Island in Harrisburg, PA, which seems to support this excerpt HERE. Flight 93 was meant to be Cult 93's epitomizing symbol, the one that would perform the ultimate 'kill shot'. The Three Mile Island Nuclear Power Plant had a nearly catastrophic reactor meltdown in 1979 (screenshot excerpt HERE), making it 'weakened' and 'prime' for Cult 93's nuclear disaster aims.
Flight 93 to San Francisco was scheduled to take off at 8:00a, but was purposely held for 42 minutes to coincide with the 'perfect' arrangement of timing/numbers encoded in the attack. This hex was actually started/initiated (at least the latter stages) in August/September 1924 with Aleister Crowley's Satanic ritual conception of Barbara Pierce (Bush). 77 years later, Cult 93's 'great work' / spell / hex to 'break' the human spiritual and genetic connection with CHRIST (= 77), was manifested. Flight 91 was the next flight to San Francisco (excerpt HERE), scheduled to depart at 9:20a (92 = TREASON), but 'never got off the ground'. 91 = GOD WINS, which was [their] attempt to say 93 (= CONQUER) defeated 91, i.e. that Cult 93 conquered God by keeping humans and justice 'grounded'.
Capital letters of Trump's retweet: NNW = 51 = ROME = ELITE = DEMON = NUKE = SAVED = ADAM EVE = RISE. The 40 is relevant as well, 40 = SAT(satellite) = I AM Q = I AM BACK. 51 + 40 = 91 = GOD WINS.
There are several relevant Q drops, and they are necessary to complete the big picture, but the most relevant is Q1050 Think Nuke stranglehold.
The 'official' story, the one that Cult 93 had prepared for [their] treasonous media partners, was that Flight 93 radio lost radio communication at 10:03 => 103 = SATELLITE; crashed at 10:06 => 106 = NUCLEAR PP (power plant) = HIDDEN ENEMY = KILL SHOT. This implies that Cult 93 was steering Flight 93 via satellite, intending to crash it into a nuclear power plant to create a nuclear disaster.
The 40 foot concrete walls erected to represent the 40 who died (screenshot HERE) were named by Cult 93, the WALL OF NAMES = 121 = HARRISBURG = ANTICHRIST= BLOOD SACRIFICE; which confirms that Flight 93 was headed for the nuclear power plant at Three Mile Island in Harrisburg, PA. Interestingly, Trump has stated that he got the 'inspiration' for The Wall from the walls erected at the Wall Of Names (screenshot of WaPo headline HERE). In typical Maestro Trump fashion, he does not merely destroy his enemies and [their] weapons, but repurposes, rebuilds, transforms, uses against [them] and revolutionizes for good rather than evil. Talk about 5D trolling of [them] at its finest! HA HA HA!
(summarizing graphic with a further detailed breakdown, related Q posts, and decoded message HERE)
The watch worth remembering strikes again!

VII. GITMO FOR CULT 93 - BIRTH OF A NEW NATION, NEW WORLD FOR HUMANITY
At 10:57a (screenshot HERE) (a retweet of the WhiteHouse's 10:52a Tweet) Maestro Trump thanks the family members of the '40' who died in Flight 93. The first thing to observe is the video duration of 0:37. HPM (high-powered microwaves) = 37, confirming the decode of the previous tweet implying RFW (radio frequency waves and/or high powered microwaves) were used by The Patriots to 'bring down' Flight 93. How do we know this is what the 0:37 duration is pointing us to? Capital letters of the tweet: TFTA = 47 = RFW (radio frequency weapons) = MOS (mossad) = DOOM = A HERO = SAVE = GHIDRA (the actual entity Ghidra and/or representative of the NSA via the NSA's Ghidra reverse-engineering open source software).
Add the '93' from the tweet, (47 + 93) = 140 = PATRIOTISM = JUST IN TIME = RECONFIGURE DNA = THE BASE CODE OF LIFE = GOD FREQUENCY.
The most relevant related Q drop is Q1052 Your trust & faith in us is enough. You elected us to do the heavy lifting. Enjoy the show. BIRTH of a NEW NATION. NEW WORLD. Q
BIRTH NEW NATION = 172 = SPELLS ARE BROKEN = RETURN TO HOME (Our Journey Back To Eden); NEW WORLD = 114 = KEYSTONE = TRUMP CARD = THE SOURCE = FREQUENCY = TESLA SHIELD = BIRTHDAY CODE (God's Original Breath Of Life - Human DNA Codes) ; BIRTH NEW NATION + NEW WORLD = 286 = THE TRUTH IS IN PLAIN SIGHT.
The other relevant Q drop is from Maestro Trump's retweet time of 10:57a, which connects to Q3457 If you look close enough you might see…. Q (screenshot HERE). While there is a reflection on the watch, 'If look close enough you might see....' has double meaning, implying to decode the filename. Q3457 is a reposting of Q3456 with the watch worth remembering, the date of the 19th, time of 4:49, and filename D2tSyy7W0AAjGeC equalling 143 = GROUND ZERO = NINETY THREE = GEORGE SOROS (Y family) = FEDERAL RESERVE = SON OF LUCIFER = ARCHANGEL LUCIFER = THE PUNISHER. This connects to Maestro Trump's previous retweet at 10:56a with the same watch, to confirm the relevance of the watch worth remembering and its connection to imminent justice for Cult 93 members.
In previous decodes I speculated the remaining watches, the 19th and 27th, would possibly come to fruition in August since the dates are on weekends in September, but it would now seem October 19th and October 27th are the days to 'watch'. My guess is Flynn will be free on the 27th of October, and a big surprise will occur on the 19th!
(summarizing graphic and decoded message HERE)

VIII. JUDGMENT DAY IS COMING - AMERICA WILL BE UNIFIED AGAIN - THE '40' BRAVE MEN & WOMEN REPRESENT THE Q TEAM & US
Again at 10:57a (screenshot HERE) (a retweet of the WhiteHouse's 10:55a Tweet) Maestro Trump re-emphasizes for a third time the relevance of Q 3456/Q3457, i.e. the watch worth remembering, aka justice for Cult 93's crimes against humanity. Trump also directly re-addresses Cult 93's fourth target, which his previous two RT's seem to reveal was the nuclear power plant on Three Mile Island outside of Harrisburg, PA. Though Trump follows 'the official story' for optics, notice how 'our nation's capital' is not capitalized? Capital refers to Washington D.C., whereas the 'official story' is Flight 93 was heading for the Capitol Dome, although it is possible to loosely refer to the Capitol Dome and White House as 'our nation's capital'. However, as we decode this Tweet, the coded content tells a much different version of the '40' brave men and women who fought back. The message has little to do with Cult 93's literal fourth target, but instead focuses on Cult 93's failure to fully complete [their] attack, and why, as a result of this, judgement is coming for [them]. Humanity however, will enjoy unity like never before, a truly mesmerizing and happy ending to the story of our National Epic. To see one of the most densely compressed and glorious coded messages ever, read the detailed breakdown and decoded message.
Capital letters: TF = 26 = GOD = HEAL; TAF = 27 = JFK = FAKED = RED = BALL = BLM = D END = HA HA HA
TF TAF = 53 = BE BEST = COMEBACK = BY GOD = GOD CODE
Capital letters integrated with number breaks. TF + 93; TA + 40; F + 93:
TF + (93) = 119 => 911; 119 = SODOMITES = ADRENOCHROME = RED DRAGON = ALL SEEING EYE = GEORGE FLOYD = LIARS IN HELL -/+ = SAVE WORLD = NIKOLA TESLA = BACK TO WORK = DIVINE WILL = BIRTHRIGHT = ROYAL BLOOD = GOLD STANDARD = NATIONAL EPIC = HAPPY ENDING
TA = 21 + 40 = 61 = QANON = DEFENDER = (of) YOU
F = 6 + (93) = 99 = EVERGREEN -/+ = PATRIOT = ONE SEVEN = GOD'S LOVE = INVINCIBLE
57 = GEORGE = HUMAN = BIRTH = TESLA = SHIELD = ALLIANCE = I'LL BE BACK = BELOW = OCEANS = I AM FREE
53 + 40 + 93 + 93 + 93 = 279 = THEY ARE GETTING DESTROYED = THE GUARDIAN ANGEL OF HUMANITY = FUTURE WILL PROVE PAST
The related and relevant Q drops are Q2255, Q3455, and Q4655. The first step is to identify that Q2257 and Q4657 both reference Think PLAYBOOK and THINK PLAYBOOK.
PLAYBOOK = 97 = MAGIC SPELL = ALIEN ATTACK -/+ = BUILD A WALL = LOCKDOWN = PLANE CRASH = LETTER Q
THINK PLAYBOOK = 159 = SOCIAL DISTANCING -/+ = JOHN F KENNEDY JR = A WEEK TO REMEMBER
For additional puzzle pieces, the filenames in Q2255 & Q3455 are relevant:
Q2255 filename [62e7efd10462376b17163c7075e721482c9a106cb2eb7c51ad32cbb3834e6b97] = 68 = EL PASO = PASSAGE = BARACK OBAMA = BECOMING
Q3455 JIHAD SQUAD = 94 = JOHN JOHN = DIVINE MALE = GUARDIANS; THE JIHAD SQUAD = 127 = DEUS EX MACHINA = RAINBOW BRIDGE. Filename 1: D_ybXhqW4AELyk- = 157 = NEGATIVE ENERGY = BEAST FROM THE SEA = JAMES BRIEN COMEY -/+ = TESLA TOWERS = GOD INTERVENES = GOD BLESS THE USA = THE STAGE IS SET. Filename 2: D_ylJ46WwAEgRI9.jpg-large = 213 = DEMONIC POSSESSION = EXTRATERRESTRIAL = UNLEASH A NEW REALITY = RESURRECTED CHRIST = JUDGMENT DAY IS COMING = AMERICA WILL BE UNIFIED AGAIN.
(summarizing graphic HERE and decoded message HERE)

IX. JFK JR IS ALIVE & HE IS Q - PREPARE FOR RED (JFK) OCTOBER (KENNEDY)
Isn't it remarkable that Maestro Trump is able to compress a story of such epic, breathtaking proportion into one Tweet? For those still 'on the fence' about JFK Jr. being alive after all, Trump has prepared the most undeniable array of dazzling confirmations, just for you.
At 11:36a, (screenshot HERE) (a retweet of the WhiteHouse's 11:05a Tweet) 39 minutes after the previous puzzle piece, Maestro Trump brings us all the way back to the the 6:13a Tweet that began the day. Do you see the 6 1 3 in 11:36? Do you see 93 reversed and flipped in 36? Do you recall how the 6:13a timestamp => (61 x 3 = 183 = BREAKING THE SPELLS, 183 was also the capital letter value of that 6:13a Tweet)? Watch Maestro Trump tie this PRESENT all up with a big, beautiful RED OCTOBER bow.
The White House timestamp is 11:05a => 105 = NINE ELEVEN = RED OCTOBER. RED = 27 = JFK; OCTOBER = 78 = KENNEDY. Trump's RT at 11:36a => 136 = GREAT AWAKENING = HEAVEN ON EARTH = 136 => 163 = MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.
Video duration: 0:40 => 40 = I AM Q = U.S. = US.
Capital letters of the 11:36a RT by Trump:
WFAT = 50 = BIBLICAL = FALLEN = BUSH = AMERICA = DONALD = LION = FUSCA = FIGHT
The numbers highlighted in the content are 40 = I AM Q; 93 => Cult 93 => Q vs Cult 93; 40 = SCALE = US; 93 = ENTITY = HARVEST = BREAKDOWN = GATEKEEPER
WFAT = 50 + 40 = 90 = DIVINE HAND = GENETIC CODE = GOD IS HERE
WFAT = 50 + 93 = 143 = GROUND ZERO = NINETY THREE = GEORGE SOROS (Y family) = FEDERAL RESERVE = SON OF LUCIFER = ARCHANGEL LUCIFER = THE PUNISHER = JOHN KENNEDY II = JOHN JOHN IS ALIVE
[(W = 23) + 40 = 63; (F = 6) + 93 = 99; (A = 1)] = [63 + 99 + 1] = 163 = MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN
WFAT = 50 + 40 + 93 = 183 = BREAKING THE SPELLS = TRANSFORMATION
Related and relevant Q posts are:
Q2305 In the end, you will be 'shocked' to learn what you've 'essentially' witnessed.
Q4705 patriot, noun, a person who loves, supports, and defends his or her country and its interests with devotion a person who loves their country and, if necessary, will fight for it, a person who vigorously supports their country and is prepared to defend it against enemies or detractors, a person who regards himself or herself as a defender, especially of individual rights, against all enemies foreign and domestic Q Video link (screenshot HERE), Patriot Flag scene (link HERE), exactly 1:29 => 129 = PATRIOT DAY = VIBRATIONS = 129 => 39.
Q2336 - Filename of image 1: DaHEgSOVwAEG-8h = 125 = JOHN KENNEDY = TIME TRAVEL; 125 + 8 = 133 = JOHN F KENNEDY + 2 (i.e. JFK 2). Filename of image 2: DdcamI6WAAEyROC = 125 = JOHN KENNEDY; 125 + 6 = 131 = JOHN F KENNEDY = SIXTY ONE (61 = QANON). Filename of image 3: DcPsu1PV0AEtzNc = 170 = DECODE INFORMATION = DIVINE BLOODLINES = I CLEAN UP THE MESS = WE'VE MADE IT TO EDEN = FORTY SEVEN = TRIPLE GIVEN NAME = TWO THREE THREE; 47 = JOHN; 233 = JOHN FITZGERALD KENNEDY (i.e. 'triple given name'). Filename of image 4: DHQ27100 = 29 = JFK + 2 (JFK 2); 27 = JFK = RED; 100 = RIG FOR RED = JFK JR IS Q. Filename of image 5: T_ah2810 = 29 = JFK + 2 (JFK 2); 29 + 2 + 8 + 1 + 0 = 40 = I AM Q.
Q3536 Thank you for confirming….
Q4736 RIG FOR RED. Q [RIG FOR RED = 100 = JFK JR IS Q; 47 = JOHN; 36 = I AM HE = PANDA (Vincent Kennedy's 'RED PANDA' = (RED) JFK, I AM HE (PANDA). 36 represents the reversal and flipping of 93.
(summarizing graphic and decoded message HERE)
Puzzle coming together? How much more clear can Maestro Trump make it? What if I told you he has many more bombshell revelations for us in the remaining puzzle pieces, one in particular, the 17th piece of the puzzle, which brings a twist ending that will blow your mind 103 times more than this?

2020.09.24 16:37 roboto_jones Built my First PC as 31st Birthday to Myself - My Full Experience : Specs, Purchase (from Australia), 7 hours live-streamed Build, NO POST, Troubleshoot, & Lesson - Super Long Post!

Photos of my FIRST PC Build! & a photo of me with the laptop it's replacing!
Story:
Initially I wanted to buy a pre-built PC for my 31st birthday but after reading some comments and posts (especially here on buildapc), I decided to build one myself - to save some $$$ but to also as a learning experience; oh boy did I learn some lessons.
The PC was built to replace my aging 2013 ASUS G750JX.
Primary use is for Gaming - WoW: Shadowlands, Cyberpunk 2077, Halo : Infinite, & Assassin's Creed : Norway Simulator. No Microsoft Flight Sim here. Secondary for Work - Autodesk Revit, Rhinoceros 5, 3DS Max, SketchUp, & Vray. Occassionaly for Streaming and Video editting - Twitch Studio, Adobe Rush.
After watching/reading a lot of guides, parts selected, and parts arrived - I decided to live-stream my entire build: YouTube link of my stream reduced from 7 hours to 1 hour.
I also thought I'd share my experience with you guys by making a SUPER LONG post.
So like days when games guides were giant TXT files from GameFAQS, I divided this into CHAPTERS!

Chapters:
A001 - PC SpecsA002 - Specs Lesson / Alternates OptionsB001 - Budget Info & Store Choice - from an Australian buyer perspectiveB002 - Spec vs Price Comparison - at time of purchase on August 22B003 - Delivery & Arrival date of Packages - Guess which package arrived the quickestC001 - Build Guides - some tutorials that I found usefulD001 - My 7 hours Build - Live Streamed!D002 - NO POST! & Troubleshooting - with the help from one of my viewers.E001 - Post-Build & General Lessons LearntE002 - Next Upgrades Selection & WishlistF001 - Special Thanks & Shameless Self-Promo
Just Ctrl+F and search the code "AXXX" for that specific chapter and you'll jump right to it!

// A001 - PC Specs // PC Part Picker list : https://au.pcpartpicker.com/list/rXzGWb


// A002 - Specs Lesson / Alternates Options //
I won't go to Part-by-Part because honestly, I'm no expert - I'll link to a guide if I find one. These are just some of the things I noted after my build.
Choosing your Parts Lessons / Tips :

Alternate Options - Some parts I considering as alternate to fit a lower budget:


At time of purchase, the 30 GPUs Series were still rumored, with only leaked images. So I went with an RX 5700 XT because it felt like it was the best Bang for the Buck and that it would be a longer wait if I wanted the Nvidia 30 series or AMD 6000 series.
If time is not a constraint for you, I'd say it's definitely worth waiting for the new GPUs.

// B001 - Budget Info & Store Choice //
I initially wanted to buy a Pre-Built PC but after deciding to build my own, I just used the initial budget for my parts.
Being in Australia, a giant island away from everyone else, parts are more expensive. Most tech reviews will mention the USD prices and unfortunately it's not a 1:1 currency conversion - so set expectations accordingly.
I specifically chose these stores because I've made purchases from there before and they're local.
I wanted to order locally to avoid any international shipping and direct customer service if I faced any issues. I also just wanted to help out local stores as much as I could during this pandemic season - eventhough business for e-retailers are booming right now.
Other Australian stores worth checking out are: Mwave & PLE & SKYCOMP

// B002 - Spec vs Price Comparison //
A quick schedule I made for each parts by the selected AU Stores I've purchased from:
BOLD items are the lowest price found. Italics items were sold-out / pre-order listed.Prices shown were from purchase on August 25.Price listed as Australian Dollars - AUD$Price with (*) means the place I bought the part from.

Part / Store PCCG Scorptec Centrecom PCByte
CPU : AMD Ryzen 7 3700X 529 525 519* 525

TOTAL PRICE PER STORE: 2471 2434 2383 2295
Standard Delivery: 21 Did Not Check 0 - Free! 10
TOTAL PRICE OF LOWEST & AVAILABLE PARTS = AUD$2296
By the cost comparison, PCByte was the best place to purchase IF they had all the stock - which sadly wasn't the case.
So I ended purchasing the parts from PCCG, Centrecom, PCByte separately, which the total parts costs was $1 higher than the total at PCByte. The most parts I ordered from was at CentreCom for their free delivery. PCCG was the only place that had the Case & PSU, so I ordered it from there as well.
AS A TEST, I ordered another 'Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3600 CL18' from AmazonUS for $99.20 + $16.50. To see how fast it would arrive and 32GB RAM would be great to have. Boy oh boy, the $4 savings than the price at CentreCom was not worth it.
TOTAL COST INCLUDING DELIVERY = AUD$2,442.70

// B003 - Delivery & Arrival date of Packages//
A summary from Order Date to Shipment Arrival for each store:

One thing to note for my orders with CentreCom & PCByte, I decided to pay via Bank Transfer to save from the 1-2% surcharge on payments made via PayPal or Credit Card but then it took those stores time to verify the payment has been received before shipping the order out.
PC Byte was quick to process the payment, only requiring a Transaction Receipt to verify. CentreCom took much longer which resulted in the slower shipment than the AmazonUS from Whitestown, Indiana, USA to Melbourne, Australia.


// C001 - Build Guides //
The number 1 that helped me was RTFM - READ THE FRIENDLY MANUAL. (Thanks Jay) Most of things you need to know on the part and how to install is mentioned in in their respective manual. There are general information that applies to each part but they can vary slightly from different manufacturers - so read carefully.
Again, I won't go through part-by-part guides. Just some guides & information that I found useful.
Here's some of the tutorial videos that helped me with my build:

// D001 - My 7 hours Build - That I Live Streamed! //
Here's an edited down version of the stream from 7 hours to 1 hour & minus the few times my recording dropped for some reason.
So I did watch all the guides and videos listed previous chapter. Also, read the manuals of most of the products online before even receiving the parcels. Still, I was a nervous a mess!
I did buy a whole set of tiny screw bits for $19 because it has that weird bendy bit for hard to reach spots. 100% not required at all, definitely an overkill on my part.
A simple breakdown of the video, this is NOT a guide - just a summary and some handy tips I recalled:
  1. Installed as much parts as you could onto the MoBo - the CPU, RAM, & NVME SSD.
    1. Make sure the CPU is placed oriented correctly!
    2. Check the RAM is installed in the right order! RAM may require some force!
    3. Make sure you got the right standoff for your NVME SSD. Don't leave one below in the middle of the NVME as it may damage it.
  2. Prepared the AIO CPU Cooler (Corsair H100X) - made sure the right brackets & mounting brackets were in place.
    1. Read the manual!
    2. Don't touch face of the cooler! Leave the cover on.
  3. Installed the fans onto the radiator - in a pull configuration. Just to make the fans visible honestly.
  4. Installed the radiator onto the radiator mounting bracket from case (NZXT H510).
    1. Check your case's manual!
  5. Recording Dropped! Prepared my case before I placed my MoBo.
    1. Install the IO Shield. Mine is pre-installed, so don't need to worry about it.
    2. Checked the right standoffs are in-place to receive my ATX MoBo. DON'T leave any unnecessary standoff on the case, it may DAMAGE your MoBo.
  6. Placed my MoBo into the case.
    1. Angle it slight for an easier insert.
    2. Screw it place. Don't force the screw! As long as it's secure, it's sufficient.
  7. Recording Returns! Installed my AIO Cooler (Corsair H100X).
    1. It has this weird earing mounting thing that hooks onto the existing bracket on the board.
    2. Make sure the logo/face of the AIO is oriented accordingly!
  8. Installed the radiator mount back into the case.
  9. Prepared my Fully Modular PSU - Again, RTFM - Read The Flippin' Manual!
    1. Installed the needed Cables.
    2. This where I should've installed my cable extensions, if I had any.
  10. Installed the PSU onto the case.
  11. Make sure to orient it correct! Mine was with the fan blowing to the bottom of the case.
  12. Took out the Hard Disk Drive Cage & screwed the HDD into the cage.
  13. In hindsight, should've done this first before the PSU as the cables got in my way.
  14. Your case may vary! Check your manual.
  15. CABLES TIME! Checked the orientation of where each cable would go from the back of the case and to the front.
  16. Again, read the manual!
  17. A good thing about my case (NZXT H510) is that the Front Panel connector comes in a handy single-piece bundle that makes it easy to connect.
  18. Connected all the MoBo cables. Always check the orientation! Look at the empty keys slot, any square face indents, clips, etc. Be careful!
  19. Installed my GPU (ASUS TUF RX 5700 XT) - it is a hefty boi.
  20. The GPU I chose has a 6pin+8pin PCIe Cable bit which confused me for a bit.
  21. I should've - READ THE MANUAL!
  22. Double Checked everything is securely installed
  23. Plugged into Power & Switch the PSU to On
  24. GPU LED turned on.
  25. No weird noises - thankfully!
  26. Pressed the Power Button AND...
// D002 - NO POST! & Troubleshooting - with the help from one of my viewers. //
NO POST! - Which sank my heart instantly.
Shoutout to one of my viewers, haxnetTech, who told me to look at the LED on the MoBo next to the RAM, which highlighted "DRAM" and basically guide me through the troubleshoot.
Because I had 4 sticks of RAM installed. The issue could've been a lot of things : RAM sticks might not have been seated securely, a faulty RAM stick or multiple of them, OR faulty Motherboard.
So troubleshooting began as follows:
  1. Removed all 4 RAM sticks.
  2. Reseat all 4 RAM. NO POST.
  3. Removed all 4 RAM again.
    1. Separated each pair based on their serial numbers - CentreCom pair and the Amazon pair.
  4. Installed the CentreCom pair in the A2 & B2. YAY! POST!
  5. Installed the Amazon pair in the A1 & B1. NO POST!
  6. Removed all the RAM and placed the Amazon pair in A2 & B2. NO POST!
  7. I did test each RAM individually in A2 and found only ONE of the Amazon pair was faulty.
    1. Because I wanted to return it, obviously I returned it as a pair.
  8. Removed the Amazon Pair and reinstalled the CentreCom pair. YAY! POST!
  9. Proceeded to install my Windows.
    1. Made sure to install the OS in the NVME SSD, NOT the HDD.
  10. After 7 hours live-stream, thanked my stream.
  11. Ate a Chicken Kebab.
My initial plan was to have 32GB Memory (4x 8GB) and having to return a pair, I ended up running off 16GB for a while.
I did have a concern that maybe I had issues with my A1 & B1 RAM slots on my MoBo, so I ended up ordering another pair 32GB Memory (2x 16GB) to fill out my remaining slot and test it out. Worst case, I'll just run off the A2 & B2 with the 2x 16GB pair.
MEMORY : Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB (2X16GB) DDR4 3600 (PC4-28800) C18 1.35V Desktop Memory BlackCOST : AUD$222.00 + $15.80 Delivery - from SKYCOMP. The only Australian store that had stock.DELIVERY : Ordered - 08.09.2020. Arrived - 14.09.2020. 6 days.
RAM arrived, installed the 2x 16GB memory in A2 & B2. Installed the CentreCom 2x 8GB pair in A1 & B1. TADAA! I am officially running at 48GB Memory.

// E001 - Post-Build & General Lessons Learnt //
I spent most of the time after my live-stream tidying the cables at the back of the PC and setting up my usual software & games.
Tweezered Zip-tied all the loose cables as neatly as I could.
I did try and do some basic overclocking with some guides on YouTube and Guru3D recommendations BUT I don't think I will include it in here as I am not that well-versed on the topic.

So here are some lessons I learnt from my build, aside from some of the tips I mentioned in the previous Chapters:

// E002 - Next Upgrades Selection & Wishlist //
PC Building is an addiction, you'll immediately look at things that to upgrade your perfectly functioning setup. I am officially one of them.
I even made a schedule of my wishlist and store prices - in hopes that if there was ever I sale and huge price drop (in Australian Dollars AUD$) :

PARTS PCCG SCORPTEC CENTRECOM PCBYTE SKYCOMP MWAVE PLE
SSD STORAGE: Gigabyte AORUS NVMe Gen4 1 TB 329 319 299 299 296 329
RGB Case Fans: Corsair LL120 63 CFM 120 mm Fans 179 159 159 149 157 159 159
OR Lian Li SL120 119 139 Not Found Not Found Not Found 139 Not Found
3080 GPU: MSI GeForce RTX3080 VENTUS OC 1379 1379 1379 1379 1379
OR Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3080 10 GB AORUS MASTER 1639 1639 1639 1639
1440p Monitor: AOC CQ32G2E 599 499 499 499 477 499 525
OR ViewSonic VX3258-2KPC-MHD 499 499 499 508 499 499
With my type of work, high memory GPUs are great but a 3090 is ridiculously expensive of an expense - so a 3080 would be nice step up. I am happy enough with my current GPU to wait for next generation, maybe a 3080 Super or a 6000 Series ST model.
Reason why I included the monitors is because the current monitor setup provided by Work is a decent 1440 60hz monitor that's been colour calibrated. Great for work, not so much for gaming.
After my build, I won't be buying upgrades anytime soon. But hey, you can't have a dream without a goal.

Shipping:

Please choose between the 3 shipping options and use the charts to estimate your shipping cost. Final price will reflect real cost once I finalize the packaging.
- Risky uninsured mail in a well-tapped enveloppe is possible for little purchase, even if I don't recommend it as there would be no guarantee on the shipment. Rates are the following:
Weight To France Worldwide
20g $1.20 $1.70
100g $2.40 $3.40
250g $4.80 $8.50
500g $7.10 $13.60

- Insured (up to $175 value insured) and tracked enveloppes are possible at the following rates:
Weight Worldwide (insuring $50) Worldwide (insuring $175)
20g $7.10 $8.30
100g $8.80 $10.00
250g $13.80 $15.00
500g $18.90 $20.10
2kg $28.90 $30.10
- Tracked parcels are available. Please note real value will be declared to customs (never more than USD 800 per parcel, which under the Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act of 2015 should enter the US without tax). However, please note that the US Border & Customs Administration is free to contact you and ask for any justification. Base shippment rate are the following. Please note you'll need to add $1.20 per each $120-tranche insured.

Weight to Europe Worldwide (base rate before insurance)
500g $15.10 $29.90
1kg $18.60 $33.20
2kg $21.10 $45.60
5kg $27.00 $66.80
So, for example. A 800g-parcel to the USA insured for $650 would need an insurance for 6 tranches of $120 > it would cost $33.20+(6*$1.20)=$40.40
- For other shipping destinations or options, please PM. It may be challenging for Canada (I still don't get Customs rules).
- Consider grouping your purchase for single shippment by visiting our other active posts.

Payment:

PayPal for Family & Friends is the only solution I know in USD working in France. Please don't mention the real purpose of transfer in the comments section. Please note that PPFF will charge a little commission (from $.99 to $4.99 apparently) for international transaction outside of European Union. THANK YOU TO PAY IN USD and don't convert in EUR (Paypal FX rate is so scam).
Major cryptos welcomed.
EUR payments solutions (Transferwise for example) are available, please contact.

Shipping:

Please choose between the 3 shipping options and use the charts to estimate your shipping cost. Final price will reflect real cost once I finalize the packaging.
- Risky uninsured mail in a well-tapped enveloppe is possible for little purchase, even if I don't recommend it as there would be no guarantee on the shipment. Rates are the following:
Weight To France Worldwide
20g $1.20 $1.70
100g $2.40 $3.40
250g $4.80 $8.50
500g $7.10 $13.60

- Insured (up to $175 value insured) and tracked enveloppes are possible at the following rates:
Weight Worldwide (insuring $50) Worldwide (insuring $175)
20g $7.10 $8.30
100g $8.80 $10.00
250g $13.80 $15.00
500g $18.90 $20.10
2kg $28.90 $30.10
- Tracked parcels are available. Please note real value will be declared to customs (never more than USD 800 per parcel, which under the Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act of 2015 should enter the US without tax). However, please note that the US Border & Customs Administration is free to contact you and ask for any justification. Base shippment rate are the following. Please note you'll need to add $1.20 per each $120-tranche insured.

Weight to Europe Worldwide (base rate before insurance)
500g $15.10 $29.90
1kg $18.60 $33.20
2kg $21.10 $45.60
5kg $27.00 $66.80
So, for example. A 800g-parcel to the USA insured for $650 would need an insurance for 6 tranches of $120 > it would cost $33.20+(6*$1.20)=$40.40
- For other shipping destinations or options, please PM. It may be challenging for Canada (I still don't get Customs rules).
- Consider grouping your purchase for single shippment by visiting our other active posts.

Payment:

PayPal for Family & Friends is the only solution I know in USD working in France. Please don't mention the real purpose of transfer in the comments section. Please note that PPFF will charge a little commission (from $.99 to $4.99 apparently) for international transaction outside of European Union. THANK YOU TO PAY IN USD and don't convert in EUR (Paypal FX rate is so scam).
Major cryptos welcomed.
EUR payments solutions (Transferwise for example) are available, please contact.

2020.09.23 18:48 starkicker18 So You Want To Move to Norway: A Rough Guide To The Immigration Process (updated)

Important warning: Reddit is not an appropriate place to get accurate immigration information.
However, this is a common topic on this subreddit and to help direct people to the proper information, I have updated the previous post to address the most common questions. Please read the entire guide and use the links provided to see out answers to your specific questions. Any questions you may have that cannot be answered from this guide or the links provided cannot be answered by redditors on this sub and should therefore be directed to an appropriate immigration expert.
Disclaimer: I am not a professional; I neither work for UDI nor am I an immigration lawyer. I do have an interest in immigration law and have spent a lot of time studying and researching the rules and regulations. What follows is a rough guide only meant to serve as a starting point for the average redditor. With that said:

So You Want To Move To Norway....

Despite what movies might portray, moving abroad is not just a matter of packing bags and showing up. Immigration is usually a long, often expensive process and there are many criteria that you must meet to be legally resident in Norway. There are three general categories of permits that will allow you to remain in Norway beyond a regular tourist/visitor visa:

Temporary Residence Permit This is your first step. These permits are contingent on you/your reference person meeting certain requirements; are usually temporary; and will need to be renewed (usually yearly, some last longer). You must have this permit if you wish to remain in Norway beyond your visitor visa’s allowed time (ie: >90 days).
Permanent Residence Permit This can be applied for only if you have been legally living in Norway for three years (or more in some instances) with a residence permit that forms the basis of permanent residency; you meet the language requirements; and you have not been convicted of a criminal offence. This allows you to stay in Norway permanently (no need to renew. Edit: to clarify. Your PR card will expire, but you do not need to reapply for this type of permit. Renewing the card is akin to renewing your passport. The renewal period is every 2 years for non-EEA citizens and 10 years for EEA citizens).
Citizenship This is an optional step. You do not need to apply for citizenship; however, if you want to, you can qualify for Norwegian citizenship after a period of time (usually >7 years). This has many requirements, but the biggest is the language requirement. NB: While Norway has now allowed dual citizenship, your country of origin may not allow dual citizenship. NB: Norway does not do Citizenship based on heritage. One or both of your parents need to have citizenship (and not have given it up previously) in order for you to qualify for citizenship based on birth. There are a lot of complicated rules surrounding citizenship by birth. Use this to determine if you qualify for citizenship.

The remainder of this post will focus on the first residence permit (#1) since by the time you are ready for 2 or 3 you will be an immigration pro. How you qualify for immigration to Norway and how easy the process will be depends on a few factors

Immigration as an EU/EEA citizen:

If you are an EU/EEA citizen (or Swiss) you have the right to reside in Norway for 3 months without any other obligations; after 3 months you will need to demonstrate that you are meeting your treaty rights. Those treaty obligations are:
NB: The last three require you to have sufficient funds to support yourself and your family and have comprehensive medical insurance for the duration of your stay.
The right of residence for longer than three months also extends to the EEA/EU citizen’s immediate family (spouse/partner, children, other dependents), regardless of their nationality, so long as the EU/EEA citizen is meeting their treaty obligations and neither the citizen nor the family member is a threat to public policy, security, or health. All of this is explained in the Directive on Free Movement.
It is important to note that people immigrating under this route do not qualify for the benefits found in the Introduction Law, which include, among other things, the right to free language lessons.

Immigrating as a Third-Country National (not from EU/EEA).

I am using an applicant from the US as the default here. Your rules may vary slightly depending on your nationality.
Your options for moving are not as simple or easy as above. You should consult UDI (Norwegian Immigration Board) or the Norwegian Embassy in your country for the most up-to-date information for your specific nationality.
Generally speaking you need a reason to be in Norway. These reasons are:
  1. Family member of a Norwegian national
  2. Family member of an EEA/EU national
  3. A worker
  4. An undergraduate or graduate student which has been discussed before.
  5. Protection (Asylum seeker). I will not spend time on this; it has its own complicated rules and I highly doubt anyone seeking asylum will be spending their time on reddit. If you are, I really recommend seeking out an immigration lawyer to help you with your application.

Family immigration with a Norwegian National

These are most often spouses/cohabitants, but may also include children or parents under some circumstances.
The process for application is relatively straightforward with a little bit of reading on UDI's website and some document gathering.
  1. You must pay the application fee,
  2. Document your identity (passport),
  3. Have a valid marriage licence/certificate,
  4. Have plans to live together in Norway,
  5. Not be in a marriage of convenience,
  6. You must both be 24 years old,
  7. Your spouse/partner must make above a minimum income threshold per year pre-tax (this number frequently changes. Check UDI’s site). They will need to demonstrate they made a sufficient amount the year before you apply and demonstrate that they are likely to have the same amount the following year. They will need to provide contract of employment, pay slips, and a tax assessment notice. Additionally, they must not have received financial assistance from NAV in the last 12 months.
There are other circumstances that may require additional documentation (ie: evidence of military service). Check UDI for all the documents you'll need.
Family members who are granted residence based on this route will qualify for free language classes as part of the introduction act (link above).
NB: the rules may change if you have lived with the Norwegian citizen legally in another EEA/EU country. If this is the case, you may be allowed to choose between family immigration under Norwegian national law or residence card as a family member of an EU citizen (see above). Also see the differences between the two immigration schemes here.
If you are engaged to a Norwegian you can apply for a fiancé permit which will allow you to come into Norway for the purposes of getting married in Norway. You must be married within 6 months. After you are married you will have to apply for family immigration with your spouse (process described above). You can read about getting married in Norway here.
Only some people can apply from Norway. Others will have to apply from their home country via the embassy or consulate. Make sure you check with UDI to learn whether you need to apply from home.

Workers

There are many types of working permits. UDI’s webpage will outline all the possibilities available to you but the most common are skilled worker and seasonal worker.
Skilled workers are those who:
Additionally, you must have received a concrete job offer from an employer in Norway, the job must normally be full-time (UDI will, at the time of writing, accept 80%), the job must have the same pay/conditions that is normal in Norway, and the job you are offered must require the qualifications as a skilled worker (and you must be qualified for the job).
If you do not fall into this category, you may qualify as a seasonal worker; however this route is considerably more difficult, usually temporary (<6 months), and your employer must prove that they cannot fill the position with a worker from Norway or the EEA/EU. You will need to be employed 100%, you will need a concrete job offer before you apply, and the job must be deemed season or holiday stand-in.
Those citizens who qualify as a skilled worker and who are coming from a country with a visa-free agreement with Norway you may be allowed to come to Norway as a skilled job seeker.
NB: You cannot work while you are searching for a job. This means that once you have a concrete job offer, you will need to apply for a residence permit as a worker and you cannot start working until your application has been approved.
It is very advantageous to have a grasp on the Norwegian language before you arrive. There are some fields which may accept a lower proficiency in Norwegian; however, these careers are few and far between and knowledge of the local language will help with both applying for jobs and acclimatizing to living in Norway.
Some international companies may post workers in Norway. You will still need a resident permit for workers; however, many companies will help with this process.

2020.09.23 09:46 shesdumb UPDATE: I [21F] think I have a crush on my geeky guy friend [23M]

Hi! I'll link the original post here for anyone who hasn't already read it and is curious, but the original post is from months ago and I feel that I owe everyone an update since I've been asked for one multiple times (and I'm flattered by the curiosity!).
Or, for anyone who just wants a TL;DR: I'm generally a "party girl" and I have/had a crush on a male friend of mine who falls out of my social circle (he is a nerd, and I'm not even being malicious when I say that, he'd agree with me and wouldn't take offence either. I wish I could share pics of his action/anime figure collection on here because it's...huge. Like, insanely so. I'm estimating at least $75,000 worth, 100% unironically. But that's off-topic, so I'll launch into my update).
I'll be mentioning house parties, but I want to clarify that these are outdoor parties in an area that (at the time, sadly things have gotten worse since the return of school/work) had very little COVID-19 cases, so it was safe. Again, off-topic, but figured I should include a disclaimer. I'm outside of the USA.
Anyway. Last I left off, I was mentioning him having a house party. So, a few days before his house party, I was at another house party. This part gets embarrassing, but honestly, the whole post is embarrassing so it's okay. Anyway, whilst being drunk I tweeted something like..."have sex with me already". Essentially, dropping hints "very" "subtly" because honestly, I'm extremely cautious about guys (but also, I'm not so cautious drunk). And he liked that tweet, which is interesting because he rarely likes tweets. Yes, this is the world we're living in. "How'd you and Daddy fall in love, Mommy?" "Well, sweetheart, I tweeted about wanting to sleep with him, and he liked the tweet and then I knew we were soulmates!" But I digress!
So, he liked that tweet, and a day later messaged our group chat to remind us that if anyone wanted to stay the night, they could. Now, here I am thinking. Oh, yeah. We're gonna sleep together at this party. So, my best friend and I show up at this party a few days later, but it does not go as planned/expected.
First of all, this was not a good party. Not because of him. Honestly, he's a really fun host, but it was a bad party because a friend of mine; her boyfriend got super drunk and started being downright abusive to other people at the party, which basically, just...killed the mood for everyone involved (I won't go into specifics, but he was racist and a lot of people at this party were POC, including the host). Additionally, at one point we played a drinking game I created and that friend's boyfriend basically implied I would sleep with this guy friend (same one hosting, the same one I've been talking about this entire time) for "free" if he just asked, which was so middle school and also really awkward. Definitely not as bad as the other stuff, but yeah. I don't know how to explain it, it was just not a good night. I stayed over, but I didn't sleep with anyone and I didn't even really speak to him at that party. And then I left the next day.
So, after that...basically nothing happened until another friend of mine asked if we wanted to hang out a week or so later. So it's me, my other male friend (20M), my best friend (21F), and my "crush" (23M). At one point, my "crush" (I hate that word) and I were alone and you could cut the tension with a knife. Like, you know when you and someone else basically like each other, but no one is saying anything? Yeah, basically, but more sexual. Also, he and I are not good at flirting. Our attempts at flirting sound like...It's Always Sunny dialogue. I'm not elaborating, we're just awkward.
There was another party hosted by my best friend's sister a little while later. Me and the crush were actually joking about sleeping with each other over text (think, "joking"), but...here's where it kinda went...awry. So his best friend, messages my best friend, and basically hints that...he wants to sleep with her. In essence...my "crush" had been discussing the potential of sleeping with me at this party with his best friend, so I guess they thought that my best friend would sleep with one of them, too. (I apologize for the terrible and confusing wording). And I was already getting apprehensive about pursuing anything with my crush, so this basically just...yeah, that kind of pushed it over the edge. I don't know. It made things weird and a little sad. Like, it made it into something very cheap. And I have nothing against hookups, but I really do have a bond with these guys and it just...made it sad.
After that, we were supposed to make plans (as a group) to have a movie night, but it never happened. It just kinda fizzled because of the prior disappointment. The crush and I were flirting over text and by then, he was extremely obviously aware I wanted more than friendship, but I think everything just mixed so poorly that I was like...nah, we're better off friends.
That's probably why I didn't update for a while. So many people liked the post and wished me luck and I hate disappointing people. Something I do want to note though is just...I didn't lose interest because of "social circles" or anything. We definitely don't have the same friends. We have a weird friendship, because, again (and I am not tooting my own horn), I'm a known "party girl" in this area and he plays D&D and goes to conventions, etc., but that never mattered to me. I always thought it was a little odd just because of those differences, but it never made me think any less of the potential. In fact, one of the things I liked most about him is that I could be myself with him and he never thought I was weird (and I do have a little of "weird" or more masculine-interests, that I don't ever have other girls to talk to about, so, you know...it's nice to have that).
It was more, like...the emotional differences. I said this in the previous post, but...as much as I love being friends with him, he does lack...emotional depth...and I'm pretty much all emotion. We both tend to be irresponsible people in general too and I just don't think I could be with someone who didn't provide me with some sort of stability, even if I enjoy their presence.
In that same sentiment, I should mention, I know he has emotional depth deep down. His best friend (who I'm also close with), mentioned that the only girl he's ever dated, he dated for years and she was pretty manipulative and emotionally abusive. I have some toxic tendencies like that. So it's not just about my fear that he isn't someone who I could rely on, it's that I'm also not someone I think he could count on. And especially knowing he's a friend that I've come to love and value, I couldn't go out with him and unintentionally hurt him like his last girlfriend did (in fact, I don't want to date anyone until I feel I've worked through a lot of problems I have within myself; I have what is likely an undiagnosed mood disorder).
And then, there's also the "if u/shesdumb wants to sleep with me, maybe you can sleep with u/shesdumb's best friend!" thing that hurt my feelings a little and overall made me realize — no matter how much I like someone, it doesn't matter if there are differences that just...won't make us compatible...and I still love him as a friend, but that kinda tipped the scale. Anyway...
At the end of the day, I'd still be with a guy like him (i.e. someone I can be myself with and someone who makes me laugh so hard my stomach hurts). But just not him in specific. I love his family and I love spending time with him, but I think I was probably just looking too deeply into something that isn't there and though I'm not perfect, he made it evident to me that this was not something that was going to work out. Evident that he wasn't suitable for me to date, and I'm not suitable for him either.
Sorry if this disappointed anyone :( I know I saw a few guys saying my post "gave them hope", which is sweet, and I have to remind you...I'm just one person! And I still love "nerdy" guys. I love any guy who is just...so openly himself and so do so many other girls. Honestly. Don't be discouraged because I'm a flake. This very guy I'm speaking about is probably going to end up with a stone-cold fox and I know that because he's hilarious and nothing is sexier than a good sense of humor. Just look at Hollywood. Actually, when we went to school together, a crazy-hot girl in my class mentioned wanting to hook-up with him just because he's that charming and ridiculously funny. So, you're not alone. I'm going to see him 10 years from now with a supermodel or something.
That's all for now...who knows, though. Maybe I'll have another update at some point. You never know. If anything at all was confusing, I'll answer any questions anyone has for me. Especially considering how long and disjointed this was...thanks for listening!

Driving/walking through the neighborhood looking for "For Lease" or "For Rent" signs and inquiring with the owneproperty management

How do I get around?

To and from LAX: Flyaway shuttles from LAX to Downtown Long Beach. (General Site: https://www.flylax.com/flyaway

Uber and Lyft: This is pretty self-explanatory.

Metro A Line - Public Transportation - Formerly called the Blue Line. This is the Metro light rail line that connects Long Beach to much of the City of Los Angeles. General Site

Long Beach Transit - Public Transportation - Bus - This is pretty self-explanatory. General Site

Long Beach Aquabus/Aqualink - This is a ferry that sails from one end of the Long Beach waterfront to the other. General Site

Catalina Express - The boat ferries passengers from Downtown Long Beach to Catalina Island. General Site

What should I see and where are the non-touristy stuff and hidden gems?

History:

* Have breakfast or brunch on the Queen Mary (not exactly off the beaten path, but also not to be missed)
* Walk or bike down Long Beach, or book a Harbor Tour to learn more about the harbor and history of LBC
* Visit and tour Rancho Los Cerritos and/or Los Alamitos
* Walk around (or rent a boat and row around) Marine Stadium, home of Olympic rowing competitions, or watch a rowing competition (look up the rowers association or dragon boat racing competitions)
* Dinner (fancy) at Parker's Lighthouse or (less fancy) get a sunset view at the patio at Belmont Shore Brewery

Art:

* Visit MOLAA and the lesser known Pacific Islander art museum across the street.
* Grab a cup of coffee and catch some live music while admiring the art at Viento y Agua or Portfolio coffee houses
* Check out a 2nd Saturday art walk in the Arts District or First Friday's in Bixby Knolls, or visit a weekly Farmer's market (Tuesday nights at Cherry and Broadway is one)
* Book a date for two where you learn about clay and make your own cup/bowl/plate on a wheel at Clay on First

* Grab some crazy ice cream flavors from Long Beach Creamery
* Rent a bike and travel the many bike paths throughout the city/beach/rivers
* Try out some instruments or record a song at Gilmore Music
* Browse records at any number of fantastic record stores
* Try Cambodian Cuisine (or any number of other amazing foods - from pho to bangers and mash to waffle sandwiches, we have it all.
* Go to the beach (seriously- not many people do)
* Visit the aquarium of the Pacific on a weekday afternoon (tip: they feed the big sharks outside at 2pm, and you can often find discounted tickets online, or see sharks and listen to live music outside on Friday's)
* Take the murder mystery paddle boat dinner cruise

Where should I live? What's x area like?

Bluff Park and Belmont Heights are about as lovely as Long Beach gets.

Bluff Heights is a really historic and charming residential neighborhood.

Alamitos Beach is gritty, charming, and has a youthful energy and a great proximity to other areas. Parking is notoriously bad here and most buildings and homes don’t come with parking.

Bixby Knolls is up towards the northwest side of the city and has some of the city’s most gorgeous Old Money residential areas, and a lot of new restaurants and businesses popping up. It almost feels like a whole other city separate from Long Beach.

The Eastern half of Long Beach (close to Cal State Long Beach) feels much more suburban and residential, and has nice areas like Los Altos and Recreation Park.

Downtown is overpriced and overrated, but it may be your thing.

Try to stay south of 4th St, and definitely south of 7th.

So much of this depends on where exactly your job is located or what vibe you want.

Is x area safe?

Long Beach is relatively safe but can change drastically block to block. Best areas to look for are about 4 blocks from the beach, Bixby Knolls, Belmont shore , east Long Beach by the university /605 freeway, and the area between signal hill / Bixby Knolls is nice.

The overall crime rate in Long Beach is 25% higher than the national average. For every 100,000 people, there are 8.86 daily crimes that occur in Long Beach. Long Beach is safer than 13% of the cities in the United States.

Crime Map of Long Beach More Information

Where can I watch the baseball/basketball/football/fight match?

Legends, Stache, R Bar, and Roundin' 3rd are good choices.

Where can I find parking?

Miscellaneous Questions:

Internet - Spectrum and Frontier are the top two. A lot of areas only have 1 or 2 options at most. Spectrum and Frontier are similar in quality with Spectrum maybe slightly coming out on top.
Here is a site that ranks them: https://www.highspeedinternet.com/ca/long-beach?zip=90814

Tips for posting:

Tell us about you - If you want us to suggest things for you to do then you need to give us a good idea of what you enjoy. Don't just say "I like music", say what type of music. Don't just say you want "somewhere nice to eat", say what type of cuisine you like (or don't like). The more specific you are the better, otherwise you'll just get pointed back to the generic guidebooks, blogs and our wiki (coming soon!).

Tell us your budget - If you're on a budget then tell us what it is and we can bear that in mind when making recommendations. There's no point in us coming up with ideas for things to do and places to eat if they'll clean out your wallet within the first 5 minutes. Saying you want something "cheap" isn't really helpful because what's cheap is entirely subjective.

Tell us where you'll be based - Let us know where you'll be staying so that we can give local recommendations.

Asking about hotels or hostels - We have homes here so know very little about what the hotels are like. Look on review websites such as TripAdvisor. However, if you say "I've been looking at these three hotels. Which do you think is the better location?" then that's the sort of thing we can answer.

2020.09.23 00:34 MatriculatedDolphin 1440p 144Hz Gaming Build ~$1000 USD

What will you be doing with this PC? Be as specific as possible, and include specific games or programs you will be using.
Mostly playing AAA games at 1440p and as close to 144 fps as possible with my budget.
What is your maximum budget before rebates/shipping/taxes?
$1000, but willing to go ~$100 over if you feel like performance would be sacrificed at that price. If it is not possible to get a monitor at this price then feel free to budget everything else within the $1000 and I will sort the monitor out later as I have a 1080p 60Hz one that I can use for now.
When do you plan on building/buying the PC? Note: beyond a week or two from today means any build you receive will be out of date when you want to buy.
I plan to have this built by the end of the year. I am willing to hold out for any new hardware releases in the near future.
What, exactly, do you need included in the budget? (ToweOS/monitokeyboard/mouse/etc)
Everything but the storage, keyboard, mouse, and OS.
Which country (and state/province) will you be purchasing the parts in? If you're in US, do you have access to a Microcenter location?
North Carolina, USA. No microcenter.
If reusing any parts (including monitor(s)/keyboard/mouse/etc), what parts will you be reusing? Brands and models are appreciated.
Reusing two Samsung 850 EVO 500GB drives, Windows OS, keyboard, and mouse.
Will you be overclocking? If yes, are you interested in overclocking right away, or down the line? CPU and/or GPU?
I plan on overclocking my CPU right off the bat.
Are there any specific features or items you want/need in the build? (ex: SSD, large amount of storage or a RAID setup, CUDA or OpenCL support, etc)
Nope
Do you have any specific case preferences (Size like ITX/microATX/mid-towefull-tower, styles, colors, window or not, LED lighting, etc), or a particular color theme preference for the components?
Would prefer a mid-tower ATX case if possible. Don't really care about RGB so feel free to neglect that in favor of performance. I would like a window on one side of the case.
Do you need a copy of Windows included in the budget? If you do need one included, do you have a preference?
No

2020.09.19 06:12 G_A93 The timeshare presentations in Nevada are getting out of control

“...and walk away with a trip to beautiful Las Vegas Nevada! Enjoy a complimentary 5 day 4 night stay at any MGM casino resort all on us! No nonsense, no gimmicks. Just a bit of your precious time! Call today!”
Yes. A vacation extravaganza all on the arm. Courtesy of the Hibou Timeshare Corporation. All it cost was your time and cooperation for a timeshare presentation. Simple enough yes? I wish I would have realized how much better a couple of overtimes would have served me, than taking myself to that horrid building.
I was living in Phoenix AZ with my parents. Still half way bullshitting my final semester at college. I’ve got to be honest, I was checked out. It was summer..I was going to graduate and I had these final two classes in the bag. I could have failed my finals and still walked out with a C. Yes but that kind of luxury came at a price. My social life was the casualty in all of this. While I did have a tight knit of pals, my attendance to social gatherings were...well..less than punctual. I was usually doing work for one of my advanced classes. If not that, then I was pulling a shift at either of my jobs. Yeah..you could say I gave up the glamour of late night pizzas, puking in my friends car and hooking up with a random ASU frat sluts for a heavier wallet...except I was paying everything out of my own pocket. My gas, insurance, cell, college. I wasn't exactly hiding cash in the walls. My parents worked hard but..never did make a living to give me and my siblings an extravagant lifestyle. We were grateful though.
So when I heard that AD of how I could get a long needed vacation to party central Las Vegas, all for watching some BS timeshare I knew I wasn’t going to buy into, you bet your ass off I made that call. The phone only rang once before I got an answer,
“Thank you for calling the Hibou Timeshare Corporation, how can we help you?” a voice rang through the phone. The voice sounded shrill and sickly.
“Hi, I'm calling about the vacation in Vegas? Says that you need people for a presen..”
“Yeessss.” the voice interrupted “The timeshare presentation, well...we would be so honored to have you”
“Uhh..yeah...anyway I’d like to sign up? Is there a form online or do you take the information here?” I said..now feeling a bit tense.
“Well I'll tell you what...pack your things for the vacation. When we are finished presenting..we can send you on our way to Vegas. We just need..a bit of your time.”
That was that. He gave me the address, date and time of the meeting. The area was in a place called Amargosa Valley in Nevada. Luckily it was just about an hour away from Vegas. Before we parted ways on the phone, the operator said something...he said something that should have been a MAJOR red flag.
“Okay then, you’re all set...we will see you July 28th at 4:30pm. Not a moment later” he laughed
“Oh..and..one more thing, if you have some more specimens like yourself that might be interested in the free vacation...bring them along. They’ll all receive the same prize and you will receive $100 cash for every person you bring. We look forward to presenting you, Austin. Good day.”
I never gave him my name.
Still, my young dumb brain didn’t hear anything past $100 dollars. So I rounded up a few of my best pals and we were set to meet the reps over at the timeshare. The days leading up to the trip I couldn't get a hold of myself. It was so exciting. My first real vacation in...i couldn't remember how long. I longed for this type of adventure with my friends. We packed a truck full and set off to Amargosa Valley.
I brought Luke, Larry and Adam. We’d been friends since the 3rd grade. We all moved to AZ from different parts of the country that summer, so being new kids we naturally ganged up together. Luke was from Texas..we called him Tex. Real big guy. Loved to work out but definitely was a bit of a boozebag. Larry was from Ohio. Quiet in public but probably the loudest of us all. Always had some political conspiracy to talk about. Then Adam..Adam was interesting. He was from Florida...or Georgia...or Nebraska. Adam never could keep it straight about where he was from. He always had some sort of story and backtrack about where he’d come from. I personally thought he was probably from another part of AZ and just wanted to fit in...so we humor him and let him be the nomad of our group. I myself was originally from California...things got pricey so we made the move to blistering AZ.
That was my crew. No matter how long it had been, we were always as tight as ever. The ride was filled with laughing and gags. Stops at fast food joints and all around bullshitting. Yes it was an amazing time just driving there, we couldn't wait to get on with the meeting and head down to Boozeville USA. As we approached our destination...something felt off. Amargosa Valley had been a bit of a ghost town the whole drive. A gas station here. A small outlet there...but otherwise unpopulated. When we hit our destination we were met by a Chrome building. Smack center in the middle of the highway. As we parked at the only stall..we all took a look at each other.
“Well this is...odd.” Luke said plainly.
“Yeah man...are we really going there?” Adam shook out. Barely containing his fear.
“Look guys, I know it looks weird. This place is really clean and bright in the middle of a dusty desert but c’mon. It's like what...an hour of our time? Within 2 hours we’ll be on our way to the dopest guys trip ever.” I said...selfishly.
The guys all agreed. We got out, locked the car up and walked in through the sliding glass doors. The cool air hit us like a wave. Each of us breathing in the refreshingly cold air. The inside of this lobby..was also immaculate. Chrome everywhere. Right down to the sofas and chairs. A woman came from around the front desk.
“You must be here to be presented. I see you brought more specimens! What a joy! Will you gentlemen please follow me?” She said.
Specimens. Ugh. Her tone. That word still makes me shutter.
Me and the boys looked at each other..all with the same should we do it look on our faces. Maybe it was the cold air enticing our sweaty brows. We’d been a poorly AC’D truck for a couple hours. Or maybe it was the ice cold drinks she presented in front of us. Whatever the case we followed her through a door behind the front desk and were met with a grand auditorium. It looked as if it could hold maybe 50 people. And all they had was me and my knucklehead friends. As we sat down, sucking down sodas and waters, a mans voice came over the intercom.
“Welcome my friends to the Hibou Timeshare Corporation presentation. Today you will be examining the lifetime of these vessels. Determine whether or not you think they are a smart investment and make a choice if you would like to partake!” I recognized the voice. It was the same shrill tone that I set up the appointment with.
“Now my dear friends, it's time to sit back with your favorite drink...and listen..”
With that, a large projector screen came down from the celine. An old timey countdown began winding down.
BEEP3...BEEP2...BEEP1
From what I can remember, I heard the screams of something...unnatural. A scream so high tone that I felt as if my ears would burst with blood. I tried clasping my hands over my ears but to no avail. The screams were too overpowering. As soon as it started, I passed out.
I awoke looking at the lights on the celine. Unable to sit up. I could tell I was bareass naked on a metal table. I moved my head, the little that i could to see Adam next to me on another table. Naked as the day we were born. He was encased in what looked like a light purple energy field. Looking more in depth, I too had this field in front of me. Before I could speak the tables raised up. Bringing me upright. Bringing me face to face with Tex. To the left of me..Larry. “My friends, I present to you: Terramite 99-0 specimens.” a voice rang out. The same voice from the auditorium.
“They are..of the male species. Strong. Cunning and above all loyal...if raised properly.”
“HEY, you bastards. WTF is this! LET US GO!” Tex cried out. Before he could continue, the energy field tightened around him. Tex let out a scream that will haunt me for the rest of my life. The smell of burned flesh and hair filled the area. I would have puked had the horror of seeing my best friend being burned alive wasn't keeping my attention away from the smell. When the field lifted, Tex was stripped down to the muscle fibers. Hair burned down to the scalp. Tex convulsed until he finally relaxed into a hanging position on the table.
“Now see..specimen is now sedated. Relaxed into a weaker position. With the energy field keeping him contained and the Auto-Reversal Time Warp engaging, we can have this specimen back into working shape immediately.”
There was an electrical hum in the air. As before my eyes, Tex’s skin began to heal. His hair growing back. And all burns subsiding. It was as if nothing had happened to him. He still hung in limbo, but we could see the breath return to his chest.The rest of us let out bits of gasps of horror and astonishment.
I could see Adam crying a bit in the corner of my eyes.
A figure appeared from behind me. A tentacle graced my shoulder, not even phased by the force field. I caught sight of the creature. It stood around 7foot tall. Skin that looked human but a head that was elongated. No nose. And eyes that were black as coal. It had two tentacles for hands. I could not see its feet, as it was covered by a long gown.
Larry screamed in anger. “Your...your...a...a…” he managed to get out before the creature silenced him.
“Shhhh….I am...a salesman is all. Now my friends I will demonstrate the life cycle of the Terramite 99-0’s.”
With that, Larry's forcefield began to hum. Right before my eyes Larry began to get...smaller. Not in stature necessarily, no, but in age. He went from being a young man..to a teenager..to that kid i met in 3rd grade..to an infant. His cries were extremely loud. Unaware of the horrors around him. At that moment I could hear Adam's field begin to hum.
“Please no! Please!” Adam begged.
“If you will direct your attention to our third pod:”
Adam then began to scream as he went from a young man..to middle aged man...to retirement age and finally...to a decrepit old man. Hair as white as snow. Wrinkled beyond recognition. Each breath looking to nearly be his last.
“From birth to the declining ages of 70 to 100 Terran years…the Auto-Reversal Time Warp pods are the perfect tool to use when training your armys, your children, your slaves. Imagine...never having to replace workers. Never worrying if your training methods or punishments might go too far. Never losing a prisoner to death.” The creature said. Full of glee in his dead eyes.
Between the crying of baby larry and incoherent babbling of old man adam, the room felt like it was spinning. Just when I thought things couldn't get any stranger, the rest of the lights came to life. The room we were in were surrounded by seats, similar to the ones we sat in. However, sitting in these seats were ghastly creatures of different varieties. Some looked like the salesman creature. Others were ogreish. Large bodied creatures covered in a film of slime. Some of them even looked human. It was the eyes though...their eyes were a teal color with white pupils. Many many creatures looked up me and my friends. All of them began clapping their hands in unison. The claps were deafening. The cries of the baby felt as if a baseball bat was connecting with my head every second. Adams babbling was terrifyingly disturbing. And Tex...hanging there. Eyes rolled back into his skull. I couldnt imagine the hell he began to feel. At this point I wondered what awaited my fate. The clapping stopped abruptly.
“Oh...Austin...yes, well if you want to know what fate awaits you just shut your eyes. Shut your eyes and quietly count back from 3.” the creature said...was he reading my mind?
Suddenly the urge to close my eyes overtook me. Almost as if I had no choice, I began counting down. 3….2….1….
Everything went black. I wasn't sure if i was alive or dead...or somewhere in between. I saw nothing but black for what felt like a lifetime. And in an instant...I heard that same shrill scream. Only this time I could not cover my ears. I couldn’t feel my body but I felt an unimaginable amount of pain. As the scream grew to its peak, I slammed my eyes open. Trying to catch my breath.
I was back in the car...we were all back in the car. The engine was on. Shitty ac blasting. The others were still out. I sat up in my seat. Not wanting to move too suddenly. The sun was beating down on us. I looked over at the time on the dash…July 28th 4:34 pm. I reached into my shirt pocket and I found several vouchers for the MGM hotels in Vegas along with $300 dollars. I also found a card that simply read “Hibou Timeshare Corp. would like to thank you for a bit of your time”
The boys came too. All feeling rather groggy.
“We all fell asleep huh?” Adam laughed. “We here?”
They didn't remember a thing. Not one thing. Not going in...not the reception area...not the freaky timeshare presentation...not one bit. I lied...i told them that while they were sound asleep, we arrived a little earlier than expected. The presenter had an emergency and left our vouchers at the front desk and apologized profusely.
“Wow, what a gentleman!” Tex laughed. “We definitely owe it to him to sit through another timeshare, probono.” Larry added.
I think it's safe to say that I will not be returning to this or any other timeshare. As I drove away I could see the building disappear in the rear view mirror.
So if you’re traveling deep within the southwest of the United States and hear an ad for a free vacation that's too good to be true...do yourself a favor..turn off the radio, call into work and ask for some overtime..because nothing is ever given for free.

  • Dave has results from the poll he put up before March 27. Out of 532 responses, 504 enjoyed Clash more, with only 20 liking Wrestlemania more, and 8 rating them roughly equally. 489 voted for Clash as having the better card, while 39 picked Wrestlemania’s card, and 4 thought the cards were equal in quality. Only two picked a Wrestlemania match for match of the night, with Ted DiBiase vs. Randy Savage and DiBiase vs. Don Muraco each getting a vote. FlaiSting got 245 votes for match of the night while Midnight Express/Fantastics got 242 votes, and the NWA tag title match got 36 votes.
  • Anyway, it’s a really slow news week. So with the complete lack of anything interesting happening, Dave is gonna hit us with a bunch of semi-organized thoughts and such.
  • Hulk Hogan and Sting are the two guys coming out of Sunday with the most buzz. The level of response Sting has been getting cements him as the #2 babyface in the country, jumping past Savage and the Road Warriors quite quickly. Sting’s a guy who never had a big push before a couple months ago, had never gotten a clean pin on a major star, he’s never even won a singles title in NWA. He’s good for his experience level, but he’s very unpolished, and he’s not a good talker. But the man has some kind of charisma and fans have latched onto it, and Sting/Flair is now the most viewed match in modern NWA history and potentially the most viewed match in U.S. cable tv history. Ric Flair deserves a lot of credit for the match turning out and for giving Sting the rub, but you can’t get over off a rub like that if you don’t have something to you. Unfortunately, they don’t have a lot of options for sustaining his push and keeping his momentum going. He’s worked Flair for four months now, and there’s no other heel he can have a meaningful feud with without cooling off. So Dave worries they’re going to whiff and fail to catch lightning in a bottle with Sting.
  • Wrestlemania’s numbers may be down, but ppv kept it from being a flop financially. Roughly 585,000 homes paid $19.95 to watch Wrestlemania IV, roughly a 6% buyrate (maybe as high as 6.5%), which means a gross of $11.7 million. With closed circuit, live gate, and the site fee Trump paid, the total take is an estimated $16.3 million, with WWF pocketing roughly $7 million. Merch may get them another million. We’ll see the real success or failure when WWF returns in a month, because they’re taking four weeks off. So we’ll have to see if it’s profitable to off-set other losses of income - house show revenue leading to Wrestlemania was down from the same period as last year, and the summer slump is coming.
  • Clash drew an overall 5.8 rating and 12.6 share, being viewed in 2,561,000 homes in an average quarter hour. It’s not quite Royal Rumble ratings, but interestingly the audience grew every quarter hour. You’d never see that in a modern Raw, that’ for sure. FlaiSting topped out at a 7.1 rating/15 share with 3,138,000 homes on average, with the final 15 minutes having just under 3.5 million watching. Quite possibly the most watched slot of wrestling ever on cable tv. No matter how you slice it (ratings services assume a household means 2.2 viewers, based on their averages). Dave figures for wrestling the number may be closer to 3 particularly for ppv, but no matter how you slice it Wrestlemania didn’t have near as many viewers as Clash.
  • Dave thinks there’s a criticism of Wrestlemania that isn’t really just: the card was too long. For what was billed (16-18 matches), it wasn’t too long, and the card only went 3 hours 40 minutes with a 12 minute intermission. Most matches were under 6 minutes, and cutting time would have made them even shorter. The card may not have been good, and it may seem long because of its badness, but any shorter and all the complaints would have been about the lack of wrestling.
  • For Clash, Dave thinks the criticism of there being too many commercials is a bad one. Seeing that quality a show for free? You can live with commercials and let the advertisers foot the bill. And they didn’t break any match up with commercials. Sure, the breaks were longer than usual, but they avoided cutting off the action so it’s all good.
  • For the most just criticisms of both shows, Dave thinks the Wrestlemania crowd and judging for FlaiSting take the cake. The crowd at Wrestlemania was papered with non-fans who didn’t know the characters and stories, and even WWF operates at a level of complexity above the ability to just grab a random off the street and expect them to grasp everything and react appropriately with no background knowledge. As for Clash, they botched the judging completely. Nobody clarified if a judges’ decision could cause a title change. Having one judge be a Penthouse Pet on Ric Flair’s arm the day before on tv strains credulity to the breaking point. They promised a winner and gave a draw. They never made clear that Jason Hervey and Ken Osmond weren’t actually judges and were just sitting at the judges’ table as celebrities. If Flair and Sting had been average or even bad, this judging stuff could have completely ruined the show in Dave’s opinion.
  • Dave thinks the best swerve related to either show happened the week before in Springfield, Illinois. Santana and Martel came out wearing the WWF tag titles for a match scheduled to air after Wrestlemania, which made Dave expect them to keep the belts. Turns out they got into it with Slick and chased him to the back, and the ring attendant brought the belts to the back, then they re-entered without the belts and the cameras didn’t start rolling until the second entrance. Clever work by WWF there.
  • Martel and Santana getting booed at Wrestlemania remains the most puzzling thing about the night for Dave. Even at the closed-circuit sites Dave got reports from, fans there booed them. At first Dave assumed it was because Demolition are kind of Road Warrior knockoffs, but reports Dave got indicate that they got booed a lot too, so Dave has no clue why fans aren’t feeling Strike Force.
  • WWF and NWA each have a candidate for “best case of assuming fans have memory loss” with their shows. WWF gets theirs for the evil twin Hebner angle. A few weeks back it was being hailed as a great angle, but once it became clear the tournament was flopping as an angle, they dropped all mention of it. Never got brought up at Wrestlemania, and Earl Hebner even refereed several matches in the tournament without any mention of his name, Dave Hebner’s name, or any referee even being named. Meanwhile, NWA’s handling of Steve Williams returning gets a mention as well. Not only is he no longer mentioned as UWF champion, they’re acting like the UWF championship has never existed. And we thought McMahon was the worst when it came to ignoring wrestling history. They also forgot his heel turn from before he quit and his feud with Barry Windham, since he and Windham are teaming on the April 17 WTBS Main Event show.
  • WWF still wins the PR game, even if they had less than a third the viewership on Sunday. All news media converge of the weekend in wrestling was about WWF. Even CNN, owned by Ted Turner, gave five minutes coverage to Wrestlemania and ignored the Clash, and several outlets went along with WWF’s claim of having 10 million U.S. viewers. USA today went so far as to claim 50 million. The lesson is obvious - NWA will be ignored in the media unless they start lying, and lying huge, just like WWF. And don’t blame WWF - until the media calls them on it, they’ve got no reason not to lie.
  • So back to USA Today and their claim of 50 million viewers in 38 countries, that’s just not true. 36 of those countries have to be fictitious, because the U.S. was the only country getting Wrestlemania on ppv, Canada was the only other country with closed-circuit, and no other countries had it on free tv. They’ll probably be on free tv in about a year in the Middle East (Dave’s comedian brother toured over there last year and WWF is big there, but they’re about 11 months behind on tapes). For Wrestlemania to have had 50 million viewers would require an average of about 90 people at every home that bought it on ppv.
  • Compared to previous Wrestlemanias, Wrestlemania was pretty bad on all fronts. The card was the worst yet by a large margin. It drew the worst on closed-circuit, only drawing half the numbers of Wrestlemanias 1 and 3. Due to the increased reach of ppv this year, it’s probably similar overall to Wrestlemania 3 in terms of overall money from ppv, but the buyrate was only a little over half the previous buyrates.
  • Most Quickly forgotten major attraction: The Rock and Roll Express.
  • Ric Flair gets spot of the night. At the 43 minute mark, he flipped into the turnbuckle and landed on his feet on the apron before going over to the other corner to come off with a flying body press that Sting reversed for a near fall.
  • Hogan wins the best smartass remark. When asked by a reporter whether him not winning the tournament meant he’d be going to the movies, he said “Yeah, I’m going to see Fatal Attraction.”
  • George Steele getting that green gets a note here for the best ratio of getting paid to doing work. Steele never even got in the ring or laid hands on anyone during the battle royal. Nevertheless, he surely got a handsome check. Get paid, Georgie.
  • Wrestlemania wasn’t supposed to be available on satellite, but was. Dish owners got the show descrambled, just without audio. Honestly, it’s probably an improved experience.
  • Dave poses a question and provides his own analysis: would Crockett and McMahon trade places? Crockett would surely take a $16 million gross for a show that is objectively an artistic failure, no doubt about that. Would McMahon prefer to have a great show that sabotaged his competition, even if he made less money? Very probably.
  • Dave makes a snide remark about what WWF can sell to counter the Four Horsemen vitamins (which he calls a total joke). For $39.95 you’ll get the perfect system you can use to calm “hyperactive children and put them to sleep, and help your own insomnia late at night.” Wrestlemania IV the video tape.
Watch: there's so little this week, so here, watch Wrestling With Wregret's review of Wrestlemania IV
  • Dave gives himself the worst analysis award. His read that Crockett couldn’t hurt WWF and that Wrestlemania would gross $25 million was so wrong it’s laughable, and his only solace is that he didn’t make the most ridiculous projections. That award goes to WWF. What this weekend really proved is that fans pretty much only care about personalities and belts mean nothing.
  • Big props to the Fantastics, because they worked their asses off.
  • Duggan being unable to have a good match with DiBiase is the saddest sight of the two shows for Dave. Especially sad considering the match they had in August that was pretty good, despite Duggn weighing over 300 lbs and blowing out his hamstring and blowing up within two minutes. And that was still a better match.
  • Dave says Randy Savage, Ricky Steamboat, Bam Bam, and the Road Warriors all lost steam on Sunday. Savage is particularly notable, being the first guy to lose steam while winning a world title.
  • For years, Flair has lost a lot while Hogan wins all the time, which would make the average mark think Hogan is better. A mark watching both shows this past Sunday may well come away thinking Flair is a better wrestler.
  • Does this mean the wrestling boom times are over? Well, we’re down from the peak and wrestling is overexposed nationwide. Smaller promotions are not going to survive, and the big ones are drawing smaller crowds. Wrestlemania is probably just a stubbed toe for WWF. It’ll hurt for a short bit, but things will go back to normal soon enough.
  • Finally, Dave looks to the future. Crockett is undoubtedly the big winner on March 27 and they’ve turned momentum around by proving they can present a show right and give quality matches that lead to a show that WWF’s glitz can’t match. They won’t surpass WWF to become number one, but they don’t need to. Their success does not depend on WWF. Their success depends on their audience, and the enthusiasm of their audience has breathed life into them once again. And yet, they’re still making unforced errors. Saturday after the Clash, they have Flair and Sting headlining matches in both Baltimore and Philadelphia, having to rush a match in one city, drive to the other quick, and do it again. It’s a recipe for two bad shows. And as long as they keep doing stuff like that which makes their live shows bad, they’re going to fail to be what they can be and they’ll start to slide again. And they have a lot of potential. Given their ratings for Clash, they may not have as many fans as WWF, but for all WWF’s advantages NWA is far closer to WWF than you’d think they would be. They’re real competition at this stage, and it’s ironic because until Vince decided to pick a fight on Thanksgiving and again in January, they simply were not any kind of competition to WWF. Vince forced Crockett to have to retaliate, and it gave Crockett the motivation to take steps he never would have taken before. Still, we’re back to NWA being the Dusty Rhodes show. Every heel talks about Dusty in their promos and half the faces as well. It’s what hurt them last year, putting all their eggs in Dusty’s basket, and just as they begin having some success, they go right to the poisoned well again. Then again, their most recent main event show was really good, so maybe they are on the right track.
  • Nobody in Hollywood knows anything about any Hulk Hogan movie. So that whole biopic that we’ve been talking about for months? Yeah, that doesn’t seem to be a thing and won’t be for over 30 years when they cast Hulk Hogan properly: as a beautiful Australian man with the body of a Norse god. Anyway, Hogan’s definitely taking time off, what with his child being born soon. As for any momentum lost, WWF will probably mitigate that issue with clever sound editing to make Wrestlemania look like a success. What matters to WWF is image, not substance. If they can make their fans believe the show was a success, it will cease to be a failure. They’ve got some truly magical powers there, but there are problems they need to overcome. And the biggest is that nobody except Hogan is truly over. They spent months building angles that flopped (such as Heenan vs. Matilda) and nothing they’re hyping next has any kind of box office potential. Do you think after what we got at Wrestlemania people are going to want to see Rude vs. Roberts? JYD vs. Ron Bass? Duggan vs. Andre? Savage vs. DiBiase won’t mean anything.
  • In closing, Dave says the moral of the story is that WWF made good short-term moves that came back to bite them big. They destroyed Crockett on Thanksgiving, costing Crockett over $2 million of their potential for Starrcade and keeping them off ppv in a big way. On January 24, they ran a free show against the Bunkhouse Stampede to sabotage the show. Crockett’s retaliation in March, however, showed they have a cable audience nearly as large as WWF’s and they cost Wrestlemania several million dollars in lost revenue. It may be a lucky day for them. Maybe it’s a turning point for wrestling as a whole that we’ll be talking about years from now. But the main takeaway is Vince has nobody to blame but himself. Live by the sword, die by the sword, what goes around comes around.
  • As we all know, WWF ran an ad during Clash of the Champions. Apparently they bought five ad slots under a fake company name. Four of them were caught, but one made it to air.
  • Wrestlemania V is scheduled for March 19, 1989. That's all Dave knows.
  • Financial News Network has begun airing weekly main events from Memphis on Saturday nights. The April 2 show had Eddie Gilbert and Jerry Lawler from March 28, while next week will be Curt Hennig vs. Jerry Lawler in a stretcher match. NWF is scheduled to do a tv taping later this month for FNN which will debut in that timeslot, but for now Memphis will continue airing.
Watch: Eddie Gilbert vs. Jerry Lawler, parking lot brawl
  • This past Sunday NWA debuted their NWA Main Event show and it was good. The show was taped on March 31 and had a super invested crowd and it showed on tv. It really helps matches to have a crowd that’s going crazy for every spot (looking at you, Corpus Christi). Some production issues aside, it’s becoming a lot of fun to watch the NWA. Road Warriors squashed Super Destroyer and Larry Zbyzkso, Dusty beat Ivan Koloff for the U.S. title in a surprisingly good 6 minute match, and FlaiBlanchard/Anderson beat LugeWindham/Sting in an excellent match.
  • [AJW] Chigusa Nagayo and AJW toured Thailand two weeks back and drew big during their visit. Crowds ranged from 8,000-11,000 and the Bangkok newspaper called them “The new craze of Thailand.” Not everybody’s quite so impressed, though, Dave notes. One Thai reporter wrote this: “I didn’t know that women’s wrestlin[g] was drawing so much attention in Thailand. The visit of the Japanese wrestlers has created tremendous interest and according to promoter Sombhop Srisomwongse, a record crowd is expected tonight at the National Stadium. How surprising it is that a few women with about two months of training and especially big framework, a few flying kicks and some TV exposure could be a draw here when traditional Olympic sports like Greco-Roman and freestyle wrestling failed to find a foothold.”
  • [All Japan] When Brody won the International Title from Jumbo Tsuruta on March 27, he went into the crowd and started hugging the fans. It got him over huge as a babyface. Brody’s one of the smartest guys in the business, seriously.
  • During an All Japan press conference with Tiger Jeet Singh and Abdullah the Butcher, Singh went nuts and started attacking reporters (?). I think it’s reporters. Dave wrote “reports” but the context of a melee makes me think reporters. Anyway, Butcher did stuff too once things got out of hand and wound up throwing a glass, which hit the head of a Gong Magazine reporter hard enough that he bled and needed two stitches.
  • The Malenko brothers met Mike Tyson when they were in Japan. Tyson’s “all the rage” over in Japan, and he thought they were the British Bulldogs. The Malenkos went along with it and pretended to be the Bulldogs until he asked if he could pet Matilda.
  • WCCW’s financial issues have caused significant cutbacks to tv tapings. They’re running shows in Fort Worth every third week now, a cutback from every other week and a far cry from the weekly shows they used to run dating all the way back to the 40s, and these shows are four hour tv tapings. The regular tv show is also taping only every three weeks.
  • WCCW may move the May 8 Parade of Champions show to the Cotton Bowl from Texas Stadium. Nothing certain yet, but there’s talk of some kind of triple cage gimmick.
  • The Penthouse Von Erich story has been dropped from the July issue. No reschedule has been announced.
  • Fabulous Lance still hasn’t shown up in WCCW because he extended his South Africa tour, where he’s a babyface. He’s even using the Von Erich name down there. There’s legit heat between him and Kevin and Kerry due to all the stuff that went down when he left and Fritz’s burial of him, and Dave just wonders how bad a Lance vs. Kevin match would be in the best of circumstances, never mind if they can’t stand each other enough to cooperate.
  • Not much details about the March 28 Memphis card, but Lawler threw fire in Eddie Gilbert’s face. The Bruise Brothers (Harris brothers) won the Southern Tag titles from Gary Young and Max Pain. The crowd had 5,500.
  • Memphis dropped ticket prices for students to $1 for the April 4 show to ensure good turnout for Jerry Lawler vs. Curt Hennig in a non-title stretcher match. Eddie Gilbert is also putting up a $25,000 bounty for anyone who can break Lawler's leg. Gilbert’s gone from the territory, but he’s supposedly going to keep sending promo tapes in to keep the bounty thing going as part of a working arrangement between Memphis, Continental, Jerry Blackwell’s Georgia promotion, and the Florida promotion Steve Keirn and Jerry Jarrett are talking about starting. Also, Missy Hyatt will be managing Hennig in the Lawler match.
  • WWF has announced a bunch of post-Wrestlemania shows with Savage/DiBiase headlining through the end of May, at the very least. No sign of Hogan anywhere through that period.
  • All of the letters are reactions to Sunday’s shows. Some choice quotes presented without other context:
“If someone had spent millions of dollars on an anti-wrestling propaganda piece, he couldn’t have approached the job that Vince did on himself this weekend.”
“Crockett smashes. Titan crashes.”
“$17 for pay-per-view and $20 for pizzas, pretzels and chips. And what did I get for it? Nothing. Wrestlemania was a bore, plain and simple.”
“Vince has sucked me into my last PPV. Never again.”
”The Crockett wrestlers put on one hell of a show. It was better than Titan’s They had to. They’re number two. But the booking still left a lot to be desired.”
”Titan usually learns from its mistakes.”
”I thought Wrestlemania IV was better because of superior atmosphere and the fact that the guys all tried to work hard.”
”Vince went for flash and name dropping. Crockett went for good wrestling. Crockett succeeded.”
  • Ron Simmons may be headed to New Japan in May.
  • Verne Gagne has started showing lots of pre-1984 tape of WWF main guys like Hogan, Ventura, etc. Why? To build his tv ratings by showing that he used to have the guys who get the ratings now. It’s a clear sign he’s pretty much giving up on house shows and is looking to keep alive through small sold shows enough to keep producing tapes for ESPN. The death of the AWA is a slow, pathetic thing that already feels really drawn out, and there’s still years left.
  • [NWA] The Dusty Rhodes suspension has been delayed and won’t be announced until this weekend’s television, and will go into effect April 16. The reason is to allow him to wrestle April 15 in Boston Gardens. They’ve already got Midnight Rider appearances booked for some shows, though.
  • Nikita Koloff will face Ric Flair on night two of the Crockett Cup. Sting would make the most sense, given how hot he is. Luger or Steve Williams would be hot, since they’ve never had the opportunity. Even Windham would at least guarantee a fantastic match. But Dusty’s giving the match to Koloff. Whatever reasons he has, they have little to do with making sense.
  • Magnum T.A. is being sued by Charlotte Memorial Hospital and Charlotte Rehabilitation Hospital for $56,692 in back medical care. His medical expenses have gone over $100,000, and his insurance coverage only covers $25,000. Related, a Toronto spinal cord expert has proposed an operation which he claims will give Magnum full use of his bad limbs and even a slim chance of returning to the ring.
  • Syndicated ratings for the week ending March 13 have WWF in 4th place with a 10.7 on 248 stations. Crockett ranks 6th with a 7.8 on 178 stations, and All-Star Wrestling (AWA, GLOW, etc.) ranks 9th with a 7.2 on 174 stations.
  • There’s a planned wrestling movie with Roddy Piper for a Christmas release. Nothing comes of this. But it’s nice that Piper has so many movie role ideas being thrown at him.
  • [All Japan] The thing with Tenryu and Hansen has made Stan Hansen’s popularity surge in Japan. They worked the shoot all the way to Tenryu’s hotel room, with Tenryu leaving the arena early and Hansen looking for him in the dressing room and later going to Tenryu’s hotel to try and find him, but Tenryu wouldn’t leave the room. Fans in Japan now believe Tenryu, the hottest wrestler in the country, is afraid of Hansen, which puts Hansen in that upper echelon of guys who come off as “real” like Brody and Akira Maeda.
  • Jim Shyman’s 976 wrestling hotline in L.A. was rated top 976 number in an L.A. publication. It’s the first time Dave’s seen anything pro wrestling top any chart in any category.
NEXT WEEK: Akira Maeda announces new UWF, another shoot in New Japan, WWF reveals internal Wrestlemania projections, and more

2020.09.15 03:30 The-Fine-Print My strategy for people who don’t trade traditionally, take it or bake it

Right off, Get out of Robinhood, it’s a cheap date and you deserve something classy with an actual caboose and some nice girls upfront. I’ve never been on a train but I’ve heard the analogy. I have been using Webull.
Set up a screener. For example, use mine because that’s why you’re here.
Region: USA Price: 0-5 Volume: 0.5M-20M Technical Indicator: KDJ Oversold
Now depending when you look at this screener you may have 80-100+ stocks, especially if you’re looking after hours which is when I have the time free from my wife.
Try to be whelmed, not overly though.
What I do as a long time g̶a̶m̶b̶l̶e̶r̶ trader of 6 months, is start to go through that line of tickers filtering the list and looking for several indicators.
First, I run through the list to see if it spiked in the last week. If the fluctuation was huge and outside the stocks normal trading range I usually write it off a a pump and dump which will usually sour investor relations and cause stagnation. If you want you can further research why it’s had the price action and come to your own conclusions, but with this many tickers it’s a numbers game, like Yahtzee, which is a game me and my girlfriend enjoy.
Then, after narrowing this down revisit the list and see which have recently dropped down 20% or more in the last 2 weeks look at the sentiment surrounding the stock in the past couple days/weeks. The stock is currently flagged as being oversold, indicating that it should be undervalued for some reason, but this isn’t always the case and may just be the stock settling at a lower price. The easiest way to do this is to use social media quickly just to see what people are saying about it.
I use Twitter, Stocktwits, comment sections of other trading apps, and as many subreddits as possible pennystocks, stocks, smallstreetbets, tasseography etc.
If no one is talking about it check the volume on the stock. If that’s normal to low compared to its standard trading range then there’s likely no chance of it moving soon.
If people ARE talking about it, WHAT are they talking about. This is the quickest way to find information for you to do further research on, see what the general sentiment is and view other people’s perspectives to inform and create your own.
Look for mentions of stock offerings, bankruptcies, SEC-filings, if you don’t know what something you see means use investopedia.com just find out why it is currently trading lower and then take that information over to a search engine. You have to fact check and do your own due diligence, and that applies everywhere in life or else suddenly you’re Mormon you know?
You do not need to spend more than a minute on each stock at this stage, just confirming what people are saying and deciding whether or not the catalyst for the price drop seems likely to reverse. Now at this point what decisions you make are entirely up to you, but hopefully you have your list narrowed down to about 5-10 stocks.
Now you do a deeper dive into these, using their company’s website as well as other sources to find detailed news. It’s also important to figure out how they are trading historically. Do they do offerings commonly, have they split recently, are they having any chance of being delisted (a threat w/Penny stocks), you want to make sure they don’t have a history of making life difficult for traders.
Last you want to find those stocks with a catalyst in the near future 2-5 days out, If you can’t day trade you don’t want something due to pump tomorrow. Look for an offering closing, fda approvals, earnings, court cases, something that you are able to look forward to definitively. This is what will hopefully ensure that the stock you choose will have a chance to rebound.
You hopefully will have 2-3 stocks that look best.
BUT if you find NOTHING that looks good.
DO NOT THROW MONEY AT SOMETHING RANDOM.
There are new plays every day, and entering into something you’re not sure about is the worst. You will make foolish decisions, you will buy at the wrong time, you will sell at the wrong time, you will forget you have children in the house and will speak of your desire to unbirth them.
Now if you do have something though, here are some rules I stick to, in no order of importance, with added notes. Think of it as a TLDR ...
DON’T buy in pre-market/after-hours
-IF you’re not confident with it, it’s not usually a good representation of the market but can nab you deals. I will however sell in PM or AH, if it hits my target(which is why Webull is my preference).
DON’T play without “good odds” AFTER DD
-Big point to remember, yes it’s all a house of cards but you can stack the cards in your favor. You need some sort of reason to be in the stock and you should be informed on how that might take shape.
DON’T put your entire portfolio in one stock
-If you diversify you will minimize your risk of taking a large loss and increase the odds of picking a winner
DO complete DD before any buy
-See above
DON’T settle for or force a stock to buy, just don’t buy
-Like I said before, plenty of plain wives on the prairie
DO get a proper nights sleep
-Underrated for sure, depending on your time zone this is difficult when trying to fit trading into your day but if you can this will help so much by creating a clearer and more awake headspace. Or microdose cocaine
DO take profits at 10%-15%
-I stick to this rule almost religiously, you may miss the m00n but remember that no one has even been there so it’s okay. You don’t want to get pumped and dumped, you want to get in and get out.
DON’T buy your full position immediately, ease in
-Now this is more of a mental thing for me but it will help fight the feeling of a stock always dropping as soon as you buy it. It can prove useful as it may allow you to average down, but two sides to every coin.
DO cut losses
-I try to get out if the stock is dipping 5-10% and if it seem to be dipping below support.
Alright I’m done
Here is some sort of proof, the line in the middle shows the difference. It was literally day and night when I started this strategy. The PL % is all fucked up on my Webull btw

2020.09.14 07:48 OnlyReveal6 small passive income while browsing the web

Introduction
If you were on the internet in the late 1990s, you might remember companies like "AllAdvantage" that promised to pay you to browse the web. You could install a program that tracked your browsing and showed you targeted ads at the top of the screen, then "AllAdvantage" would give you a cut of the ad revenue you generated.
These schemes largely disappeared after the dot-com crash. But Brendan Eich, the creator of the JavaScript programming language and cofounder and former CTO of Mozilla, thinks his company Brave Software has found a way to revive that old idea.
What is it?
Brave makes a browser based on Google Chrome that blocks tracking scripts and other technologies that spy on your online activity. As a result, it also blocks many web ads; if you visit any website using the Brave browser, you won’t see any ads. But Brave will give users the option to see ads that Eich says will respect your privacy. The ads will appear as desktop notifications, he says, not as replacements for the ads the Brave browser blocks. So you still won’t see ads on any website, but you might see them on the right lower corner of your screen. If you choose to see these ads, you’ll get 70 percent of the revenue they generate.
Eich hopes Brave can solve two of the web's most vexing problems the privacy and revenue problem by turning the traditional digital advertising model on its head. Today, ad networks pay sites for ad space and web browsers like Brave and Chrome deliver content from those publishers to users. Brave is trying to put the browser in the center of the advertising experience. Instead of paying publishers directly, ad networks would pay Brave, which will pass part of the money to users and keep a cut for itself.
By handling advertising in the browser on your device, Brave says it will be able to target ads without sending your data to the cloud, and protect your privacy. When you interact with an ad on Brave, the browser sends notice to the company's servers, but doesn't include any identifying information. Eich sees four sets of winners: browser makers get paid; users get paid, and get more privacy; advertisers can target pitches without running afoul of European privacy regulations; and publishers can survive in a world where many users are installing ad blockers.
Publishers and ad networks might bristle at the idea of putting browser makers in the middle of their business. But in recent years browsers have taken a more active role in shaping the web, instead of merely displaying a website’s content. Chrome now blocks ads on a small number of sites with particularly egregious advertising practices, while browsers like Firefox and Safari have added privacy protections. Meanwhile, browser plugins are giving users more control over their experience. There are Chrome extensions, for example, that let you change Facebook's color scheme, or change the way images are displayed on Pinterest. And of course there are extensions that block all ads.
Trying to win advertisers and publishers to a new model isn't Brave's only challenge. It also needs users. Eich says Brave has 15 million users and is growing.
Brave will give users a 70 percent cut of its advertising revenue, which Eich estimates could work out to about $10 a month. Brave will pay users with its own bitcoin-style "cryptocurrency” called Basic Attention Tokens or BAT, which has traded for as little as 24 cents over the past 12 months, according to CoinMarketCap. You can exchange the BAT you have received for viewing ads into USD, EUR, GBP, CHF and many more currencies.
The company offers a service through the cryptocurrency exchange Uphold to allow users to change, sell and buy BAT or donate it to publishers, and for publishers to exchange the BAT they receive for dollars. Advertisers like HomeDepot or recent campaigns included brands such as Verizon, Newegg, Chipotle, and PayPal/Honey, in addition to earlier campaigns by Amazon, Harry’s Razors, Intel, CBS, KIND snacks, Logitech, Lenovo, Grubhub, Belkin, Quickbooks, Evernote and some of cryptocurrency related companies, will be able to buy ads either with BAT or with traditional currencies.
Eich says Brave opted to create its own tokens using the Ethereum cryptocurrency platform in part to avoid regulatory requirements, such as verifying users' identifies, that partners like Uphold are better equipped to handle.
Estimated revenue? (depending on the country you live in the revenue can be higher or lower)
I made around 3oo$ so far this year using 3 devices, just for viewing some ads.
5 months so far july is not included if you calculate it down for 1 device, 100$/5months = 20$ a month just for viewing ads, you would need to buy risky stocks worth of 2000$ to get the same amount per month.
can only recommend everyone to try it, not every country has the same number of advertisers so you probably get the most out of it when you live in the USA.
If you are interested here is a quick guide how to set it up to get the max amount out of Brave:
Quickstartguide:
1 Download brave here
2 Activate the reward system (gif link below)Gif link
3 go into the settings an deactivate auto contribution and activate 5 ads per hour (image link below)image link
4 Create an Account on Uphold and connect it with your BraveBrowser.
Now you are good to go and can make some money on something you do anyway.
I hope this helps some folks in the community to make some extra bucks.
edit1:you can find more infos and support here:brave_browser & BATProject or www.brave.com
edit2:the earnings are depenging on the number of devices you are using and were you are living. Best paying countries: United States (69) United Kingdom (39) Canada (36) Australia (35) New Zealand (26) Germany (21) Ireland (21) France (18)( the number next to the country are the companies that are running ads on brave for this particular country, the more companies the more revenue )
you can find a full list with all countries and campaigns here: https://brave.com/transparency/
edit3:You don't need to browse to a certain website to receive ads, just browse as you are used to, play browser games, watch videos on youtube or do whatever you want.Sometimes Ads appear on the startpage looks like that https://i.imgur.com/5tohhRc.jpg and after some time on the right lower corner a clickable pop-up appears looks like that->https://i.imgur.com/CTGdVsu.png
edit4:If you want to import your bookmarks and settings from your old browser:on the right top corner of the browser is a button ->https://i.imgur.com/oi8EAri.jpg click it > than on settings > and than you got the option to import bookmarks and settings from your old browser.
If you want to sync brave between devices and for backups:type brave://flags/ into the adressbar and than brave sync into the search bar and acticate itif its enabled it should look like this https://imgur.com/a/tCMDgDjthan just click on sync ->https://i.imgur.com/oi8EAri.jpg
here is a guide ->https://support.brave.com/hc/en-us/articles/360021218111-How-do-I-set-up-Sync
edit5: Don't keep your BAT from free token grants to long in your browser, always send your bat to an external wallet or exchange like uphold, only tokens from free token grants have an expire date if they dont get used they go back to the bat pool. you can find more infos about this here -> https://support.brave.com/hc/en-us/articles/360018305731-Why-does-my-BAT-have-an-expiration-date-
