Analysis: Looking back at the 1949 Strictly Stock Tracks

2020.09.21 18:56 GodModeBasketball Analysis: Looking back at the 1949 Strictly Stock Tracks

It's time to turn back the clock all the way back to the beginning as the 1949 Strictly Stock Schedule and all 8 tracks that hosted a Cup race:
  1. Charlotte Speedway: Not to be confused with the current Charlotte Motor Speedway, this 3/4 Mile dirt track started it all. Although Glenn Dunaway won the race, it was later found out that he was disqualified for illegal springs. As a result, Jim Roper was declared the winner(Fun fact: Roper was the grand marshal for the Spring Texas race on NASCAR's 50th Anniversary season, in 1998). The track would host only one more race, in 1950, won by Tim Flock. The track was forced to be demolished due to Interstate 85's extension into Virginia.
  2. Daytona Beach and Road Course: The longest track to ever host a NASCAR Race(4.2 Miles), this track was instrumental in creating NASCAR as a whole, with the Streamline Hotel being right in the middle of it. It was a unique course in the sense that the backstretch was the Daytona beaches while the front stretch was Highway A1A. NASCAR President Bill France Sr used to race on the track in the 1940s and later would be NASCAR's first CEO. The track would be abandoned after France Sr constructed the famed Daytona International Speedway in 1959. Both the beaches and Highway A1A are still around.
  3. Orange Speedway: Also known as Occoneechee or Hillsboro, Orange Speedway was a 1-mile dirt oval, set in the woods of Hillsboro, North Carolina. This track stuck around longer than most, hosting 33 more Grand National races until it was dropped after the 1968 Grand National season. The track is still around as a forest park. Bit of a spoiler, this is the only dirt track to still be preserved from the schedule.
  4. Langhorne Speedway: One of the most feared and dangerous speedways, Langhorne was a 1-mile flat oval with little banking. The track would later gain infamy as 3 of the first 4 drivers to die in NASCAR all occurred at Langhorne. The track was not on the 1958 Grand National schedule. However, it still held the Langhorne Open, one of the most prestigious Modified races on the calendar. The track was finally closed in 1971. Currently, a Restaurant Depot, a Sam's Club, and a CarFax sit on the remains of Langhorne.
  5. Hamburg Speedway: Not much is known about Hamburg Speedway. However, the track was a half-mile dirt oval located in Hamburg, New York. The track would host only 2 cup races throughout its existence, with Jack White winning the first and Dick Linder winning the second. The Erie County Fair sits at the site of Hamburg Speedway.
  6. Martinsville Speedway: The oldest existing track to still have a Cup date, as of 2020. Martinsville is a track just over a half-mile in the shape of a paperclip. Red Byron, that year's champion, won the first running of Martinsville. Ever since then, Martinsville, besides the 1949 season, has held at least 2 races on the calendar, a Spring race and a Fall race.
  7. Heidelberg Raceway: A track that held Grand National races off and on throughout its existence, Heidelberg was a 1/2 mile dirt track, located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The track would host 4 Cup races, in 1949, 1951, 1959, and 1960(Fun Fact: The last time Heidelberg held a race, Lee Petty and his son Richard finished 1-2). The track was still around in 1973, when it held a Grand National East race, won by Tom Colella. Raceway Plaza sits on the remains of Heidelberg.
  8. North Wilkesboro Speedway: And lastly, North Wilkesboro. North Wilkesboro was a 5/8 mile track located in North Carolina. Tim Flock's brother, Bob Flock, won the inaugural running. The track was a mainstay of the series, hosting 2 Cup races each year from 1950 to 1996. In 1995, Track President Enoch Staley passed away from a stroke. Bob Bahre took up a 50% stake of North Wilkesboro. The track would host their final 2 races for 1996. The track is still around, but it is in tatters. The two dates North Wilkesboro had turned into the inaugural Texas Motor Speedway and a 2nd race at New Hampshire.

2020.09.19 00:42 lisagreenhouse Gary Michael Hilton, the National Forest Serial Killer, is known to have murdered four people. But his crimes and travels make it hard to believe there weren’t earlier victims. Are there more waiting to be discovered?

Who is Gary Michael Hilton?
Gary Michael Hilton, sometimes referred to as the National Forest Serial Killer, was a drifter who murdered at least four hikers in and around national forests in Florida, Georgia, and North Carolina between 2005 and 2008.
Hilton was found guilty and sentenced to life in prison in January 2008 for the murder of Meredith Emerson, 24. After that conviction, investigators across the country began looking into unsolved cases that were similar to Emerson’s, and Hilton was charged with and found guilty of three more killings. In 2011, he received the death penalty in a Florida court for the slaying of Cheryl Dunlap, 46. In March 2012, he plead guilty to the murders of John Bryant, 80, and Irene Bryant, 84 and a North Carolina court sentenced him to four consecutive life sentences.
Emerson, Dunlap, and the Bryants shared no specific victimology, instead it appears he chose them at random when he needed money. Investigators agree that his were crimes of opportunity, and they believe Hilton may have committed more murders across the southeast United States in the years before his four known victims were killed.
Hilton was born November 26, 1946. He had an unstable home life and varied criminal record that stretched from childhood until he was arrested for Emerson’s murder at the age of 61. In 1959, when he was just 13, Hilton reportedly shot his stepfather in a jealous rage over his mother. His stepfather didn’t press charges, but Hilton did spend some time in a mental hospital after the shooting.
At 17, Hilton joined the army, and he served from 1964 through 1967, including a tour in West Germany. He was honorably discharged in 1967 after he had been hospitalized for hearing voices and diagnosed with schizophrenia.
Hilton was married at least three times, but none of his marriages were long—the longest was just two years. He isn’t believed to have any children. His third wife was a security officer at Stone Mountain Park, a 3,000 acre park near Atlanta that offers camping, hiking, wooded trails, lakes, and family attractions, including the massive peak at its center that is carved with the likenesses of Confederate soldiers.
Hilton loved the outdoors. He hiked, camped, and frequently lived in forests and mountains around the south and southeast United States. He loved dogs, too, and had a dog named Dandy (sometimes reported as a golden retriever, other times described as red in color).
He never had steady employment; after leaving the army, he worked as a chauffeur in Florida from 1970 to 1972, and he was arrested in 1995 for stealing books he was hired to sell from a door-to-door sales company. From 1997 to 2007, he worked off and on handing out advertisements and doing odd jobs for a Gwinnett County, GA, siding company, but he permanently lost that job when he threatened to kill the company owner if he didn’t pay him $10,000.
Hilton also had ongoing legal troubles. He was convicted of a DUI in Florida in 1973; in 1983, he was convicted for carrying an unlicensed gun and a drug charge; he was found guilty of theft and marijuana possession in 1987; and he plead guilty to 21 counts of solicitation in 1995.
Samuel Rael, an attorney and filmmaker in Atlanta, admitted that in 1995 Hilton helped him develop the plot for the movie Deadly Run. The movie is about a man who stalks, hunts, and murders women in the woods, a storyline that has similarities to Hilton’s crimes. Rael had defended him in court multiple times since the mid-1980s for crimes ranging from arson and trespassing to solicitation of false charitable donations. Rael said Hilton, whom he considered a consultant on the project, came up with the idea of the main character releasing women into the woods to be hunted like prey and that he also helped select that cast and found the cabin in the woods near Cleveland, Georgia, where much of the movie was filmed. Meredith Emerson’s remains were found approximately 30 miles from that same cabin 13 years later. Investigators have said that Hilton was not considered a suspect in any murders or disappearances during the time the movie was being filmed.

Confirmed Victims
Victims are listed in the order of their disappearances and murders. However, his final victim, Meredith Emerson, was the first to be linked to Hilton. His implication in her murder helped solve the others.
Irene Bryant, 84, and John Bryant, 80, disappeared after driving 20 miles from their home to hike and look at fall colors in North Carolina’s Pisgah National Forest on October 21, 2007. The couple had been married for 58 years and loved traveling, hiking, and being outdoors. Their active lifestyle meant that they were sometimes hard to reach, and it took time for their neighbors and family to realize they were missing. Their son Bob reported them missing on November 2. He drove from his home in Texas to North Carolina to help search for his parents and discovered their vehicle at a trailhead parking lot. Investigators subpoenaed telephone and financial records and discovered that Irene had tried to call 911 around 4 p.m. on October 21 but the call didn’t go through. They couldn’t confirm whether the call failed due to lack of service or interference by another person. Financial records showed a bank withdrawal from their account at 7 p.m. the day after Irene attempted the 911 call. Security footage at the bank in Ducktown, Tennessee, 25 miles away from their vehicle, showed a slender man man in a hooded raincoat using the Bryant’s ATM card. Investigators couldn’t identify the person, but it was neither of the Bryants.
Irene’s body was found on November 9, covered with leaves and sticks, just 100 yards from where the couple’s vehicle was parked. She had been killed by a blow to the head and her arms and legs appeared to have also been beaten. Investigators speculated that her attacker had lain in wait on the trail or in the woods just beyond the parking lot.
John’s skeletal remains weren’t found until February 5, 2008 when a hunter stumbled across them.
On October 26, 2007, Hilton was stopped by a sheriff’s deputy while trespassing on private hunting land. Hilton tells the deputy he’s a paratrooper on field maneuvers, and, when asked if he’s carrying any weapons, he shows the officer an expandable police baton. The officer checks for open warrants and then lets him go. However, Hilton did have an open warrant for a minor 1972 offense in Miami, and he should have been detained.
In March 2012, Hilton plead guilty to murdering the Bryants, and he admitted to camping out in the parking lot, scouting for victims. Hilton admitted he had kidnapped Bryant from the parking lot, drove him to the Nantahala National Forest, walked him 30 feet down an embankment, and shot him in the head. It’s believed Hilton wasn’t certain he could control both victims at once, so he chose to kill Irene at the location and then use her death to intimidate and scare John into cooperating and giving him the couple’s ATM PIN number.
In the days before the Bryants’ murders, other hikers reported seeing, talking to, and even photographing and confronting Hilton in the Pisgah National Forest in the area where the Bryants were murdered. Along with pleading guilty of ambushing and killing the Bryants, Hilton also plead to robbery and firearms offenses in their case. He again accepted a plea deal to avoid the death penalty and was remanded to serve four additional life sentences consecutively with the life sentence already handed down for Emerson’s murder.
The Bryants are Hilton’s first known victims, although he was sentenced in their cases after being tried for his later crimes.
Cheryl Hodges Dunlap, 46, was a mother of two grown sons and a nurse and Sunday school teacher, She was last seen alive on December 1, 2007. She had gone hiking alone in Apalachicola National Forest in the Florida panhandle just outside Tallahassee at about 9 a.m. Friends reported her missing after she failed to show up to teach her Sunday school class on December 2 or arrive at work on Monday morning, December 3. Three days after she disappeared her car was found with a flat tire, parked on the shoulder of Highway 319 just outside of the national forest. A search of the area revealed nothing of use. However, an investigation into her digital footprint discovered bank withdrawals.
A little over a week after she went missing, authorities released surveillance photos of a man successfully using Dunlap’s ATM card to withdraw money on December 2, 3, and 4, the three days immediately following her disappearance. Police could not identify him because he was wearing a rubber mask, gloves, and hat. Detectives staked out the ATM machine for the next week, but the man never returned.
Dunlap’s decapitated remains were discovered near Bloxham Cutoff Road in the Apalachicola National Forest on December 15 by hunters who noticed the presence of buzzards. Because her head and hands were missing, it took a DNA sample to confirm that the remains were hers.
Hilton was proven to be in the area when and where Dunlap disappeared because a forestry agent had run his vehicle tag number through the police database on December 7. After Dunlap’s body was found, a hunter also reported coming into contact with Hilton in the forest—driving a white van, wielding a knife and appearing disheveled or homeless. The hunter said he’d warned Hilton that the woods was a bad place to be during hunting season. This interaction allowed the hunter to identify Hilton in a photo lineup. A forestry agent had also questioned Hilton on November 17, 2007 and run his white van’s tag number through a database to ensure it wasn’t stolen. On December 28, another forestry agent interacted with Hilton in Osceola National Forest, about 160 miles from where Dunlap was last seen. Those sightings proved Hilton had been in the area before and then left after Dunlap’s murder. The final item of proof was one of Dunlap’s boots, which Hilton was attempting to discard in the dumpster with Emerson’s belongings when he was initially arrested.
Investigators believed Hilton kidnapped Dunlap from the Leon Sinks Geological Area of Apalachicola National Forest, where friends said she had mentioned going to read a book. He likely kept her alive for a few days in order to get money from her ATM card, finally killing her. Investigators say he burned her head and hands in his campfire, then left her vehicle by the road after puncturing the tire with his police baton. There was no physical evidence tying him to the crime, but investigators were able to recover audio tapes on which Hilton had recorded himself talking crudely about women and referencing killing women and hiding things. He said he was a sociopath who could disassociate from the act of murder.
Hilton was indicted on Thursday, February 28, 2008 for Dunlap’s murder, kidnapping, and two counts of grand theft. He was found guilty by a unanimous jury in February 2011 and sentenced to death. He unsuccessfully appealed the conviction.
Dunlap was Hilton’s third known victim; he was sentenced in her case after being tried and found guilty for murdering his last-known victim, Meredith Emerson.
Meredith Emerson, 24, was last seen alive on New Year’s Day 2008, with her dog, a black Labrador retriever mix named Ella. The pair had left home in Buford, Georgia, to hike one of their favorite trails on Blood Mountain. The location is the highest peak in Georgia’s section of the Appalachian Trail and is located on the border of Lumpkin and Union counties inside the Blood Mountain Wilderness and the Chattahoochee National Forest.
Concerned after she didn’t return home, Emerson’s friends and boyfriend reported her absence to local police. She was classified as an overdue hiker. The next day, friends and authorities searched the area where Emerson and Ella had been hiking but did not find either of them. A winter storm moved in that day, and authorities had to halt the search.
After her disappearance made news, witnesses came forward to claim that they’d seen her hiking with an older man, approximately 60 years old with a red dog, on a spur trail that connects the Appalachian Trail to the Byron Herbert Reece Parking Lot. One caller was a former police officer. He reported that while hiking he’d discovered a police baton, water bottles, sunglasses, a barrette, and a dog leash and treats scattered over an area of disturbed and scuffed ground. He had seen an older man with a police baton walking with a younger woman minutes before finding the items, and he recognized the leash as the one the young woman had been holding. At first, he’d thought they were father and daughter, but the scattered belongings and evidence of a struggle concerned him. While there, he talked with another group of hikers who had seen the man hiding in the woods, but they were unable to locate him after a short search. They gathered the scattered items and left them at a local store, but they didn’t call police at the time. The next day after seeing a report on TV about Emerson’s disappearance, the former officer called investigators to report what he’d seen and found the day before.
Also on January 2, John Tabor, a former employer of Hilton’s, called police to let them know Hilton matched the description of the man seen with Emerson on the trail. He said Hilton had called him a few hours before and had apologized for acting erratically and violently toward him, asked him for money, and told him he was near Blood Mountain. He’d asked Tabor to leave him a check at a business Tabor owned, but he never came to collect the check. Investigators noted that Tabor hadn’t called them immediately to inform them of Hilton’s similarity to the suspect or his proximity to the possible kidnapping.
Police also recovered surveillance images of Hilton unsuccessfully attempting to use Emerson’s ATM card. Investigators had hope that Emerson was still alive and they were now sure she was with Hilton, so they disseminated Hilton’s DMV photo to the media.
On January 4, another witness called police to report that he had encountered an older man and young woman camping near a white van. The witness was driving a lawn care truck when he got it stuck in a stream. He asked the older man for help, but he’d refused. The witness said it seemed like the man was trying to keep him away from the van. When the witness called police dispatch to ask for help getting his vehicle unstuck, the man quickly packed up and left the area in a seeming rush.
That same day, Ella was found wandering in a grocery store parking lot in the town of Cumming, Georgia, about 60 miles away from Emerson’s last-known whereabouts. Investigators also discovered bloody clothing, bloody men’s boots, and Emerson’s purse and wallet in a dumpster across the street from the store where Ella was located. A boot, later confirmed to belong to Hilton’s third victim, Cheryl Dunlap, was also recovered from the dumpster.
Later that evening, a witness called 911 to report that Hilton—whom he recognized as the suspect in Emerson’s disappearance from news reports—was at a local gas station cleaning out a white van. Police arrived and prevented Hilton from using a vacuum cleaner and bleach on the van’s interior; they also discovered bloody clothing and blankets he had attempted to discard in the gas station trash receptacles. Blood in the vehicle was later matched to Emerson, and Hilton was charged with her murder.
During almost five hours of interrogations, Hilton admitted that Emerson fought back against him when he attacked her, yelling and using her martial arts skills to fend him off (she’d earned a blue belt in aikido and was posthumously awarded a black belt). He said that she almost got away, but that he was finally able to subdue her when she lost her footing and stumbled. He said he’d chosen to attack her because she was a woman, and that they’d hiked together for a while before she outpaced him. He then stopped and waited for her down the trail, planning to rob her of her ATM card when she was returning to her vehicle. He admitted to taking Emerson from the parking lot in his van, returning at her request a few minutes later to pick up Ella, who had initially been left behind. He drove her to multiple banks and unsuccessfully attempted to use her ATM; police believed she was intentionally giving him wrong PIN numbers to buy time. Unfortunately, no one at the banks or law enforcement noticed the failed transactions or attempted use of Emerson’s ATM cards until January 4.
Eventually Hilton gave up and drove Emerson to a secluded location where, for three days, she continued to give him incorrect ATM PIN codes in an apparent attempt to give rescuers time to find her. Hilton told investigators that he tired of waiting for the correct PIN number, so he told Emerson he was taking her home; however, he admitted that he knew he couldn’t release her since she’d seen his face and vehicle and knew so much about him. Instead, while she was tied to a tree, he hit her over the head repeatedly with a car jack handle to kill her, and then he decapitated her. He covered her body with leaves, then drove to another wooded area more than an hour away, where he discarded her head. He said he was unable to kill Ella and decided to let her go. Disturbingly, in that same interview, when asked about whether it was hard for him to kill Emerson, Hilton stated, “It was hard … you gotta remember we had spent several good days together.”
Hilton offered to lead investigators to Emerson’s body if they’d agree to remove the death penalty option. An autopsy confirmed Hilton’s story: her cause of death was officially listed as blunt force trauma to the head, and she’d been decapitated postmortem.
He plead guilty to Emerson’s murder on January 30, 2008, and he was sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole after 30 years.
The case was in the news again in 2010 when a writer for Hustler magazine submitted a request for crime scene photos for use in an article about Emerson’s kidnapping and murder. A judge blocked the request, preventing the Georgia Bureau of Investigation from releasing "any and all photographs, visual images or depictions of Meredith Emerson which show Emerson in an unclothed or dismembered state.” The Georgia House also passed The Meredith Emerson Memorial Privacy Act, preventing “gruesome crime scene photos from being publicly released or disseminated.” The Act, House Bill 1322, stops the release of all images in which victims of crimes appear “nude, bruised, bloodied or in a broken state with open wounds, a state of dismemberment or decapitation.”
Hilton’s involvement in Emerson’s kidnapping and murder drew the attention of investigators in other states. While she is believed to be his last victim, the successful investigation into her case resulted in his guilty pleas and sentencing for three other murders. A series of other unsolved crimes is also being investigated for ties to Hilton.

Possible Victims
Melissa Witt, 19, disappeared from the parking lot of a local bowling alley in Fort Smith, Arkansas on December 1, 1994. On January 13, 1995, her body was found by hunters in a rural area of the same county from where she disappeared. She was naked, and her remains were near a rock that’s been described as headstone-like. Her clothing was never located. Some investigators believe that there are similarities between Witt’s disappearance and death and those of Hilton’s known victims.
Judy Smith, 50, is considered a possible victim of Hilton’s because her remains were found near the location where Hilton would bludgeon Irene Bryant a decade later. Smith was last confirmed to have been seen by her husband, Jeffrey, at a Philadelphia hotel on April 10, 1997. The couple flew from their home in Newton, Massachusetts to Philadelphia the day before so that Jeffrey could attend a work conference. After arriving at the airport, Judy discovered she had left her identification at home and would not be able to board the plane. She returned home to retrieve her ID and took a later flight, meeting Jeffrey at their hotel. She planned to go sightseeing while Jeffrey was attending the conference, and Jeffrey confirmed she’d been alive and in their room that next morning. That evening, after the conference meetings had ended for the day, Jeffery could not find Judy. He searched for her and tried to report her missing around midnight, but investigators told him he needed to wait 24 hours.
During the ensuing investigation, there were a number of sightings of a woman matching Judy’s description in and around Philadelphia, several of which seemed to describe a person experiencing psychological problems or acting disoriented or disturbed. Other possible sightings were of a woman matching Judy’s description riding the bus, shopping at a mall, and sitting outside a gourmet grocery store. The Smith family found some of the descriptions and sightings credible.
On September 7, 1997, about five months after Smith was last confirmed to have been seen, hunters in the Pisgah National Forest about 9 miles from Asheville, North Carolina discovered scattered bones around a shallow grave. Some clothing and personal effects were also located. Cut marks and punctures found on the ribs and clothing suggested the victim had been stabbed. The remains were confirmed to be those of Judy Smith. Strangely, the clothes she was discovered wearing were not any she was known to have owned or reported by witnesses, and the family has no explanation for why or how she got to or was in Asheville. Later reports found that people in the Asheville area had seen Judy or a woman who resembled her. The sightings were deemed credible, but no one claimed to have seen Judy with anyone else. Money and jewelry was found near Judy’s body and belongings, so robbery was ruled out as a motive. Investigators came to believe Smith traveled to Asheville voluntarily, but they’re unsure of why or what happened to her while there. Hilton has been suggested as a possible suspect, but investigators have not publicly linked him to Smith’s case or named as a suspect.
Levi Frady, 11, was abducted from Little Mill Road in Forsyth County, Georgia, on October 22, 1997. The next day his remains were found partially submerged in a rainwater-filled pit in Dawson Forest Wildlife Management Area in Dawson County, Georgia. He had been shot three times, once in the chest and twice in the head. Investigators consider Frady’s case open and active. Some have hinted Hilton is considered a suspect, but he has not been publicly named.
In April 1998, Jason Knapp, 20, disappeared. He was a student at Clemson University, and he was last known to have been seen by his roommate at around 10:30 p.m. on April 11, watching a movie at their residence. His vehicle was found on April 21 at Table Rock State Park in Pickens, South Carolina. The area is about 30 miles from the university and is very rugged. Investigators found a Wendy’s restaurant receipt inside the vehicle dated April 12 at 1:30 p.m. It is believed he drove to the park on April 12. He had also withdrawn $20 from his bank account that day; his bank cards, including an ATM card, were never found. The area around his vehicle showed no signs of struggle or foul play, and it is unknown whether he drove to the location alone. Searchers canvassed the area around his vehicle for two weeks and found nothing of interest.
Patrice Endres, 38, disappeared from her hair salon in Cumming, Georgia, between 11:30 a.m. and noon on April 15, 2004. She vanished during a gap of about 12 minutes between clients. The front door of the salon was unlocked and the cash register was empty, but there was money in her purse. Her lunch was in the microwave and her vehicle was parked at the salon.
Her skeletal remains were found in December 2005 behind a church about 10 miles from her salon. A woman came forward with a description of a man in a white van parked in front of the salon, but she later recanted the story. Serial killer Jeremy Brian Jones admitted to killing Endres and dumping her body in Sweetwater Creek in Douglas County, but authorities ruled him out as a suspect after her remains were found 70 miles from that location and when he couldn’t provide any additional information that wasn’t in the public record. Authorities looked at Hilton’s possible involvement, but they say he is no longer considered a suspect. There is no information as to why investigators have ruled him out.
Rossana Miliani, 29, lived in Miami, Florida, and disappeared while vacationing in Cherokee, North Carolina. She was last confirmed to have been seen at about noon on December 7, 2005, in the hotel where she was staying. She called her father and told him she was going hiking on the Appalachian Trail. Some reports say she was spotted in Bryson City, NC, where she rented a storage space, shortly before disappearing. Miliani is reported to have bipolar disorder and schizophrenia, but no details are available about whether she was on medication or if she was experiencing any issues at the time of her disappearance.
On the two-year anniversary of her disappearance, a clerk at a local store read an article about Miliani and called investigators to report that she’d sold a backpack or bag, possibly a sleeping bag according to some sources, to Miliani and a man who claimed to be a traveling preacher who visited campsites around the Appalachian Trail. According to the clerk, the man was about 60 years old, had hair greying at the temples and may have been wearing a hair piece because his hair looked unusual. The clerk claimed that Miliani appeared to be nervous.
A private investigator working on the case released a sketch of the unidentified man in June 2009. The man resembles Hilton, and he’s considered a possible suspect. Neither Miliani nor any of her belongings, including luggage and a camera, have been found; no money has been withdrawn from her bank account since her disappearance, but a deposit was made on December 31, nearly three weeks after her disappearance. No further information is available about that deposit.
Some sources say Hilton is known to have stolen and unsuccessfully tried to use Miliani’s bank card, but I was unable to find official corroboration of those reports.
A fisherman found the remains of Michael Scot Louis, 27, dismembered and stuffed in plastic garbage bags, in the Tomoka River at Ormond Beach, Tomoka State Park, Florida on December 6, 2007. His torso and legs were recovered, but his head has never been found. Louis was last known to have been seen on November 21 or 22, 2007, but when his remains were found 16 days later, the autopsy estimated he had only been dead for two to seven days. It’s unclear where he was or who he may have been with during the days he was unaccounted for. Days after his disappearance, his Firebird was found parked unusually far from his apartment in the apartment complex’s parking lot in South Daytona, Florida, with the keys still in the ignition and his dirty laundry and guitars inside.
Hilton was officially ruled out as a suspect after DNA testing did not implicate him, but some thought he should remain on the list as a potential suspect. In January 2018, Nelci Tetley, 67, was arrested for shooting to death and dismembering her then-boyfriend, Jeffrey Albertsman, 55. It was discovered that she had possibly also dated Louis, although she denied knowing him or having a relationship with him, and she’s been named as a suspect in his case.
University of Georgia student Cayle Bywater disappeared from Athens, Georgia on December 29, 2007. She was reported missing after neighbors became concerned when her dog was seen running loose outside her home. Meredith Emerson would be kidnapped three days later from Vogel State Park, about 80 miles north of Athens.
On January 11, Bywater’s body was found in an Athens lake. An autopsy listed drowning as her cause of death, but there’s disagreement about how she came to be in the lake. There were no traces of illegal drugs or alcohol in her system, but she had been prescribed medication to treat a mental disorder, reported by some agencies as bipolar disorder. The autopsy also found a previously undiagnosed heart defect, but that could not be proven to have played a part in her death.
A photograph taken by an undisclosed individual the day she was last seen alive shows Bywater in Memorial Park walking her dog on leash. Witnesses claim to have seen someone matching Bywater’s appearance walking a dog in the park near the lake where her body was later found, and some said she appeared to be disoriented or chasing the dog. No signs of foul play were discovered on her body or at the scene, but her family insists she did not wander off or commit suicide. In a news article dated January 8, 2008, (https://www.savannahnow.com/article/20080108/news/301089882) her family was concerned that she may have been kidnapped by someone who saw her in a disoriented or confused state and took advantage of the situation. That same news article mentions the kidnapping of Meredith Emerson by Gary Michael Hilton but quotes an investigator as saying the local police department and Georgia Bureau of Investigation did not consider the cases related at that point. It’s unknown if Hilton is now or was ever considered a suspect in Bywater’s case.
Are there more? There are dozens of unsolved cases of missing and murdered people in the areas where Hilton was known to or may have traveled or lived. Someone put together this Google Map detailing known and possible victims of Hilton: https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mid=1v-4PyOHDjE17GhkF6ofEvFWtLes&hl=en&gl=us&ie=UTF8&oe=UTF8&msa=0&z=5&ll=34.77220536527494%2C-83.37685848300629 . It’s a very interesting rabbit hole. I’m unsure who created the map or what criteria they used to include possible victims. If anyone on this sub has information about the creation of this map, please let me know and I’ll include more details.

What Don’t We Know? Discussion and Theories
Knowing what we do about Hilton and the crimes for which he was convicted, it’s hard to believe that Emerson, Dunlap, and the Bryants are his only victims. Investigators have pointed out that it’s rare for a serial killer to start killing in their 60s, and Hilton’s crimes seem to be the work of a confident killer. His lack of victimology—targeting victims based on opportunity rather than sticking to a certain type of person—and his large geographic footprint, transient lifestyle, lack of family and friends, and remote hunting grounds all point to the possibility that he’s been active for a lot longer than the short spree of four known victims.
There are so many missing people and unsolved homicides in the southeast corner of the United States that it’s not hard to think Hilton may be responsible for some of them.
What are your thoughts or theories?

A note of thanks: u/cspach2005 invited me to do this write-up on Hilton for an upcoming podcast on www.disturbedpodcast.com. They covered my previous write-up on Timothy Bindner (https://www.reddit.com/UnresolvedMysteries/comments/g2mh3i/hes_been_a_suspect_in_the_disappearances_of_at/) in this podcast, https://www.disturbedpodcast.com/bindne, so I was thrilled to contribute again. I’ll add a link to the podcast episode on Hilton once it’s done.

2020.08.25 08:02 Jennsmith99228 A famous band ruined my life and I want the world to know

A famous band and one of the band members master ruined my life and did horrible things to me some creatures close to me and gave my niece stage four liver cancer. I have a little proof but not really. It’s a horrifying situation and no one seems to care. I was put under mind control and went thru horror no one can imagine but it involved innocent creatures and was a sick tragedy. The master and his friends are dead beings who did this. The two band members are either not fully human or can astral project in some crazy way. They do some awful witchcraft etc. I’ll never get over this and can’t handle it. When I tell strangers with care and concern they use it to judge me. It’s an awful story. I can’t move on or get over it and at first the band members were nice to me and did witchcraft things to me but it was funny and cute. Then the master got involved a year later and it got really bad.
This is a real story and it all happened to me. I got screwed badly and it’s not fair.
Here are pictures involved with this posting
https://musicshowsituation99.wordpress.com/
Sorry mindless freaks on Reddit who want to put me down. I talked to Kirk and james for a year thru their witchcraft and most of kirks twitter had to do with my life and conversations we had. Everyone in my family and friends knew about it. I was supposed to go on tour with them and meet them. This is a real story. Things just got bad when kirks master got involved and the deranged psychos need to stop with the drug comments. I talked to Kirk thru messenger and on the phone twice. You’re idiots and psychopaths. Stop putting someones serious situation down lunatics. Poor freaks are jealous of something so bad. I also have tons of proof duh thru pictures kirks twitter and so much other crap. Kirk also made comments private that I posted so only he and I could see them and I have pictures of that. I’m trying to explain to people why the abcs of Metallica came out or why Metallica was playing in rockville in Daytona or started playing festivals. This is a serious thing that happened and yes the world needs to know. I also didn’t even know who Kirk Hammett was and he’s not a cute guy who’s known by everyone. My life got invaded and ruined and it involves kirks master who really exists. It’s a deep and complex situation and I will write a book about it. Metallica band members also have tons of real girlfriends and court lots of women. The reason I got screwed is bc I didn’t meet them and was supposed to meet Kirk or this tall guy at the Salem exhibit and bc kirks master knew me and was going to do this crap to me anyway. Metallica came to Orlando in 2017 and the master already knew he was going to do this and that I’d go to the show. I wasn’t even a Metallica fan just a generic one and didn’t know who kirk Hammett was.
I was never a fan of Metallica just a generic one and I’m a really beautiful female. KIRK and james chase pretty women and have thousands of real girlfriends. I got screwed and it was talked about over and over how KIRK and james kiss ass of hot women. Feel sorry for me because this wasn’t a good experience. My life was ruined.
Before it got bad kirk also invited me to San Francisco the Bahamas and Hawaii but it was all bullshit. no one likes kirk except weird fans and no one I know knows who he is. He’s an old man so is James. Kirk was even worried if I met him I wouldn’t be attracted to him. There is a lot of crap about what happened and none of it is good. I haven’t written even a tenth of the details here and for one year kirks twitter had to do with conversations we had through his witchcraft abilities. KIRK even wanted attention for what he was doing to me and would get pissed when no one cared. He even ruined my brother in laws career who is a little famous because when I’d tell my brother in law about it he wouldn’t show interest. He invaded my family vacation this way and it’s a long story that’s before all the other crap happened. I went to Spain in 2018 and kirk chased me in Spain using his abilities and when I got my Passport and freaked out bc I went to Spain and came back and didn’t make it a big deal but he did. That’s when all the other stuff started. But they were going to do it anyway and sort of warned me but I didn’t know. I also at some point said to Kirk “I destroyed Metallica” Ie talking about the future and he thought bad things would happen to them on tour. It’s a long story not interesting and what happened to me is beyond anything and so messed up. One of the cartoon characters would blurt out in a cute way “KIRK and the caves!” As part of the productions under mind control bc when I went to Spain I stayed in a hotel that was a cave. They knew every detail abt everything. This was Kirk Hammett uncontained and uncontained means in invisible form.
There’s even a more recent video of KIRK falling on stage. He did that on purpose bc I told him that he’d go on tour and fall on stage. KIRK used to say things like it’s just me him and James and I was supposed to meet them at Metallica night 2018 and have a threesome. They made the hetfield Hammett experience to piss me off bc James made me enter a contest when this started and I didn’t win. Me and Kirk would make fun of krik and even James in the video. This was all done thru their witchcraft abilities and we didn’t know each other in person just talked thru messenger a few times
Kirks master was jealous of me and KIRK though we weren’t together and hadn’t met I didn’t even like him but he didn’t want us meeting or to get together which we weren’t going to do anyway so he started all this crap against me which he was going to do anyway. None of it makes sense. I didn’t even like KIRK Hammett or care for him. This was admitted while I was under mind control. It’s a long messed up story and situation.
When the master got involved the themes were “worthless”- bc KIRK Hammett deemed himself worthless for having sex with my mother as an invisible being a whole other story, buy food” bc I only got twke out and didn’t cook, “no reason at all” bc they were doing this to me for no reason at all, “never go to a Metallica concert” and taking their anger out on me. When it was just KIRK and James they were pretty nice and the worst thing they did was stop me from going to Disney or scare me one day and make me drive to a gas station and freak out. James apparently hates his daughter and took his anger out on me treated me the way he wanted to treat her and said I look like Michelle branch.
Yes the band members want me posting about it and want the world to know but no one believes it or cares or understands how serious it is and what it all entails. Covid is most likely happening because of this too. This is one of the most fascinating stories to exist but more messed up. Idiotic people act like I’m telling a cute little story when it’s a serious situation. It is not only a horrid situation it’s really important. When I tell idiot humans they have no response or maybe they’re jealous bc someoens life was ruined. People are sick and messed up.
Innocent creatures died in their own home while being mocked by invisible beings who have abilities that humans don’t have. they can just zap you with an invisible machine or their abilities and kill you but so can others Who do witchcraft they just don’t do it like. this The band members and masters friends are invisible entities and it’s a really horrible thing. I was under mind control and wasn’t Fully aware of what was happening but couldn’t do much anyway. They disguised their evils behind cute cartoon characters who were real beings they created and I could hear and see them under mind control and other things. I was forced to drive around for days and hours under mind control sleep in my car and didn’t have a real clue as to what was happening. Kirk Hammett and james hetfield were characters in the saga and it’s a long messed up story. They caused me to spend abt 41k on gas and nonsense for a year. they had me walking up and down my block with a fake clock on my head under mind control, staying at hotels for no reason, wasting my money while characters were talking the whole time and productions were being put on. there were kirks entities, melissas fathers demons and they even took demons out of my father and created real characters out of them, kirth, wicked idiot and tons of things. Just the crap they put me through was bad enough but those close to me had to suffer terribly. Then they gave my 3–4 year old niece cancer and she had to get a transplant. A lot of things the band did had to do with what I was going through. They only gave 10k to charity for a year because it was rumored they paid a company 10k to ruin my life. They did things and posted them on their twitter but they were doing that before the negative things started. The band began playing in festivals bc of something a guy said around me. Covid might be happening bc of what they did to me bc they were doing so much evil trying to get a reaction from God. Not saying covid really has to do with it but one of the themes was they- the master and his entity friends- mocked me for getting “take out” as if I was a freak. Well oddly the theme for covid was “take out” for a while. Suddenly the world was getting take out only or the nation. Yes that was a definite “fuk you” to the mockery of me getting take out. Not that it matters that they mocked me that’s not the bad part. It’s more like an indicator it mildly could have something to do with it but can’t say and seems far fetched but there is the one coincidence. The covid claim is a bit out there of course but the things I had to go through are what matters and how my life got ruined. There’s a lot to the story tons of detail and soem outrageous things I won’t get into.
I’ve told my story online before but of course I get called crazy by some and others I’m sure understand the situation. This involves a famous band and witchcraft. Many people don’t believe in or understand witchcraft that’s why this is such a different situation to talk about. I won’t tell the details but will kind of describe it. At first it was positive and famous people can do witchcraft or weird or even cool things that I don’t think anyone else can do. I’ve dealt with this before or witchcraft from a few people and so have many others but again this is a very huge band so it’s different. I didn’t meet them in person but I could have but didjt care to and wasn’t a huge fan. The band is Metallica. I was not a fan of this band and I’m in my early 40s. I didn’t even know who the guitarist was and knew nothing about the band members. I just went to a concert and my life got ruined. The two band members did a spell on me while on stage and I’ve been to like 300 concerts so I’m not some person making up stories or whatever some people might try to think. Now I know tons of secrets and things about them from the hell I had to go through. The and justice for all nonsense and seek and destroy isn’t a lie. And justice for all is apparently all the people they’ve done bad things to one day everyone will get their justice. I used to think they were about justice or something. I won’t get into not only what the guitarist even warned me about but what I had to experience myself. If anyone went thru this they wouldn’t want to live. They wouldn’t be able to bear day to day life. I can’t and I’ll never be able to live with this trauma and live life. I’m also in physical pain from it which isn’t bearable. I have no choice because there’s nothing I can do.
I was even forced to drive up north chasing Metallica and ended up at a show in Albany where their entity friends and master almost killed me. Yeah I drove up north to Charlotte then dc then Philadelphia then Albany not knowing what I was doing while under mind control with cartoon characters tormenting me and just kind of dealing with it. Scariest most fuked up crap u can’t imagine with hundreds of characters with names and abilities. Names like kirk hammetts master, kirth, negged versions, KIRK hammetts favorite entity, kirks entities, master nanny, your demon KIRK. Yes every character had a name almost involving KIRK or the master. No it’s not even horrible I don’t know how I went through it. They were also hurting me in different ways and all I knew was that “the master” was involved and had no clue what was really happening. They tortured me in many creative ways and can’t get into the way they did it. When I think about it now I’m in horror and beyond traumatized. When it all started they forced me to jump in a pool, stop my car and bow to the ground. They had me staying in hotels containing containments and I’d have to explain what that is and containing blinding demons and bizarre characters. Getting lectured by a blinding demon character, eating at ihop with skeleton looking cartoon characters showing me how to get released feom this. I was even in a publix parking lot with tin foil on my head being chased by a character and then being destroyed by a James hetfield cartoon character in a publix. All done Under the most fuked up mind control u can imagine. And yes KIRK hammett and James hetfield were very involved as characters at first but also supposedly also moderating it but then they had to go on tour so I was left with the master. There was “kirks containment” and James containment and James showed me what they can do to me and forced some lady at Walmart to start interrogating me. I was mocked by James hetfield character for defecating in a Walmart bathroom stall and they could stop me from doing it and it became an inside joke or scene in this. This is all stuff happening as invisible beings but they put me under mind confrol to where I could see and feel the things but no one around me could of course. Metallica created the “abcs of Metallica” while this was happening bc i was dealing with cartoon characters under mind control.
Kirks real demon friends were involved too as characters and one was named KIRK and they portrayed him as a cute young looking human. He said he had watched me with KIRK Hammett and watched my sister and family when I went to visit them in dc. He did some crap to me at a Walmart. It was different characters Doing crap to me 24/7. There was past life stuff involved and the master and beings showed me past lives one being where two guys tried to kill me and called me “ugly old loser” that became another inside joke. The master n beings claimed the two men were KIRK and James in a past life and that’s why they were bullying me in this lifetime. I’m a really hot woman. But the truth is I remembered that past life or story. The stuff the master showed me I remembered very Domains For Sale (http://well.ir) wAs claimed that I had past lives with KIRK and James not sure If it’s true. This happened 24/7. Scenarios scenes non stop. Every scenario character god it’s beyond anything. But that’s not even it it’s abt the lives that were lost and that’s another story I can’t talk about online. They put my 67 year old mother in an orgasm program while torturing and hurting the young pretty daughter and mocking me for being a virgin and burning my vagina over and over and yes it’s real energy they did to me but I can’t get into it.
I think the guitarist found it all cool All this weird witchcraft stuff they were doing and wanted me to go around telling people the band was stalking me and wanted attention for it. He and I talked thru messenger a few times and the phone twice but it was weird. They talked to me using their ““witchcraft abilities” in a different way and he wanted it to stay that way. I didn’t want to talk this way but I just got used to it. They were the ones chasing me in this way and yes they chase many women and in person. I should have met them but I didn’t care to and def could have. I don’t tell people these details. This was the first year when the two band members were nice to me and semi chasing me. And my family and some friends knew about it. At first I was kind of flattered and shocked like wtf I can’t believe these people know who I am. But there’s a lot about these people and what they can do to others. I should have known better I was an idiot and trusted them. Anything involving witchcraft isn’t good and I shouldn’t have participated by talking to them. But it was mostly positive and cool and the guitarist slowly showed me his abilities and I got used to it. It was mostly cute things humor funny stuff and he invaded my life but it wasn’t evil or mean and he did it in a very cool way.
a year later it got bad. I won’t go into the details but the guitarist has a master and he got involved. I had read about his master online and was creeped out and sensed something about him. The master is a little famous too as people know he exists and write about him online. No one knows what a master is but someone above him and there are a lot of details as to what they did to me and just all of it. But apparently the master knows me. So ironically yes of course the master knew me!! I mean how can anyone be this unlucky and go through something like this. So the band members were chasing me from the concert and it so happens the master knows me too. No not making this up yes it’s out there. And most likely it’s the reason the band came to my city Orlando bc the master probably somehow indirectly got them to go there so I could go to the concert and he probably made the guitarist do the spell stuff on me bc he has more abilities than him. The master apparently knew me and I had a dream about him when I was three and he knew me from other lifetimes. He showed me lots of different past lives and I remember the stories and he knew me very well and showed me the dream I had about him when I was a child. He even tried to show me that I had past lives with Kirk h and James h and showed me some details of them. Not sure if that was true or not. So the master knew me and has this history with me and is jealous of me and hates me. He wanted to show me every detail of everything and in a negative and messed up way. He knew every detail of every lifetime I supposedly had and even my friends from these so called lifetimes and played songs and depicted it using cartoon characters and all kinds of nonsense. I don’t believe in other lifetimes but apparently they might exist. Anyhow this isn’t the tragic part of it. What I went through was horrifying and I could write a book about it and lives were lost and ruined and another life was ruined in a different way. they used their abilities in a negative way and it wasn’t the band members it was the master and his friends. It’s too much for one person to go through.
the guitarist probably wants me to write about it as he was obsessed at some point wanting me to get attention for Metallica stalking me and no one I talked to really cared. I can’t move on in life and I’m also in major physical pain from it which is weird and I try to describe it. If anyone went through what I did they wouldn’t want to live. It’s too much for anyone to go through. They would be freaking out and telling everyone and going crazy. I have no idea how to process this hell. No one would be able to. It’s a lifelong trauma and hell I’ll have to bear which I can’t do. I also lost lives precious to me and innocents and I can’t get over that and the way it happened. It’s not even a loss of lives it’s worse than that. I shouldn’t even be going into details bc of the nature of all of it. This isn’t even a normal thing anyone has to go through it involves these famous people and their master and their abilities vs a human and innocent creatures just living their lives. Very few people or no one will have to be victims of a horrible tragedy like this. I don’t tell people even these details about it and there are enough details to fill a book of this crap I had to go through. But the band did little things at first like create a skateboard company bc of some guy I went out with once or played in festivals bc of me. For a year the band gave only 10,000 to charity and you can look it up. That had to do with the crap I was being put through bc it was rumored Within all of this that Metallica paid a company 10k to ruin my life. They were mocking me and this isn’t a light hearted cute situation. It’s very sad and what I went thru no one could handle. When the band cancelled their Australian tour and the lead singer said he was going to rehab that had to do with something the sick master did to me and part of one theme that was going on- taking their anger out on me. So they took their anger out on Australia and cancelled the tour and the person made up that he was going to rehab. They weren’t just playing a game with me. This is an entire experience of pain and suffering Torture and it involved characters themes cartoon characters and the deaths of innocents. The two band members were just participating in it a different way and it was mostly the master who was doing the sick things. At first they The two band members were nice and doing cute things in response to the things we talked about. But once the master thing joined well it’s a long horrid story.
Metallica was finally playing in rockville a music festival in Daytona usually in jax and I’ll explain why. When this started in 2017 or 2018 I was at rockville in Florida. Kirk would hang out around me in this witchcraft way and talk to me. He wasn’t in my physical presence. I have no clue how he did it or what it was. James did too but it was mostly Kirk. At a show some guy randomly yelled “Metallica would never play in a festival like this !” angrily. Kirk heard that of course again he thought the Witchcraft things they were doing to me were amazing different fascinating and that I should tell others about it or write about it. He even forced me to post YouTube videos about it at some point and I tried to explain that it involves witchcraft and no one would get it. I can’t get into what it was or how they did it. Stonesour was there too and Kirk always talked about how Corey Taylor was like his best friend and while watching him Kirk or whatever projection he used was yelling Corey!! It’s Corey and other things. Anyway three days later Metallica decided to play In the Austin festival. They usually don’t play festivals. they decided to do that bc of what that guy said. And then this year they were going to play in rockville finally in Daytona beach. Anyway they might find this fun or cool but it’s not. When it was positive it was kind of cool of course but then it turned into a horrifying situation. What I’m writing about sounds like a creative story or science fiction but it’s not. It’s all real and really happened. They court lots of women and in nice ways. I got screwed over badly and the story I have is beyond fascinating or just complex but not really it’s also extremely sick and every second of my existence I can’t handle what happened. Lives were lost and I can’t say who and a child’s life was ruined too. I don’t get why it’s so hard to believe that a super famous satanist band can do crazy witchcraft and if the master hadn’t gotten involved it was a cool and interesting story for sure. Now I have to live with what happened and I can’t. It’s just pain and torment and ptsd and tragic with the innocents who had to suffer. I’m in shock and pain every second of my existence that this happened.
most of what was done was done thru witchcraft and their abilities. We talked thru messenger a few times and the phone barely twice. He banned me from his fearfestevil website and this is the only piece of proof I have him editing a comment I wrote on twitter to this. I have more real proof based on things the band has done and even videos they made before things got bad. The two band members thought they were kissing my ass At first but they didn’t do anything. They do a lot more for their gfs and real groupies. I wasn’t blocked bc I was bothering him he blocked me as proof to show me hes paying attention to me in some way. These people ruined my life.
my precious child of 17 years hidden in their art. I can’t tell the details but it’s not fair. I’m not even angry it’s beyond that. It’s not fair to her
for one year they only gave 10k to charity. They never do this. This started in July of 2018 and that’s when they started doing that. That was them mocking me while my life was being destroyed and I was under mind control and had no clue what was going on. I heard rumors while under mind control that metallica paid a company 10k to ruin my life. That’s why they gave 10k to charity for a year. I also wrote online how Metallica destroys lives and put kirk on dating psychos so they and their entity friends decided to really do it. I was forced And bullied under mind control to get the crap taken down and they had removal website people calling me and I finally agreed to Paying 9k to get it removed but was then told to forget it. This is all stuff being done in the invisible world but them posting about it on twitter or other ways. At some Point while I was under mind control the KIrk and james characters invited me to go on tour and Kirk was supposed to come meet me at a bar near where I lived. He even had me call him and picked up the phone but I was under mind control and didn’t say anything. After their tour started that’s when the master got malicious before that he and the beings involved were somewhat behaved in a sense. they started a skateboard company bc I went out with a guy on a date who owned a skateboard company. The way they write the name is bc I went to a meetup group and played a game that was like that kind of scrabble. They had never met me and using their abilities they know details about my life. It’s a horrifying situation.
the abcs of Metallica was created bc of what I was being put through because I was being ruined by cartoon characters and those were the characters I had to deal with under mind control.
Kirk Hammett posted this on his twitter. The day after my gray tabby went missing to show me he knew what had happened. To this day he knows where my cat is and won’t tell me. This happened last year. From July 2017- August 2018 kirks twitter had to do with conversations we had through his witchcraft abilities. He even posted a picture of himself wearing a witch shirt and wore that shirt at the show to show people that he was into witchcraft bc I kept writing about it and people weren’t believing me or cared. https://twitter.com/kirkhammett/status/1178755450285645824?s=21 the gray cat shown on pet sematary pictures is supposed to represent this tabby. I can’t guarantee that but im pretty sure of it.
What I went through wasn’t just a rare horrible situation it goes deep with who and what was involved. Satan was very involved from the start because this was in the invisible world and involved innocent beings who can’t do anything. These beings who were metallicas friends or kirks masters friends thought they were big shots and kept bragging about their abilities. Their abilities involved murdering or ruining a female and innocent cats. It’s a horrid situation.
For years i Read about the industry and how satan controlled it. All the characters involved Ie cartoon characters who also had their own minds and thoughts Knew every detail about my life And everything I had ever read and everyone agreed Of what was going on and what was involved. movie posters such as the nun and predator were created to warn me about what was happening and to warn these other beings ie metallicas invisible friends to leave me alone. Satan was either forced by God to do this or God was using him or he did it on his own but he made it very obvious using his abilities that he was involved and knew what was going on- using the idea of what I had read about the industry etc. He has more abilities than these stupid beings bragging about what they were doing. I won’t get into the details of the movie posters but even movies and songs were created Before all this happened warning these beings to leave me alone. These beings had deemed me worthless and it was being shown to them I’m not worthless I’m important and that even supposedly a being like Satan was trying to help me out. Pet sematary also came out fast after what these beings were doing to my life. It is very serious stuff. At some point the beings were bragging about how they got satans attention and didn’t want to stop rather than taking it as a warning and it was a huge warning.
more movies involving what i was going through were Spider-Man the cartoon annabelle one of the movie posters chuckie and pet sematary. Metallica was sort of copying this by creating their own cartoon the band members knew what was going on. They also created a claymation video game type thing that’s bc some of the characters Involved in this were of that nature too. Spider-Man was a cartoon bc of this (the female in it had dark hair and brown skin like me) and the annabelle character was a red haired female Ruining another dark haired female. ie there was a red haired female character these entities used to destroy me more so she represented that character. There was a mild looking chuckie who looked almost exactly like one of the characters these beings created called “little moron” who kept torturing me or wanting to hurt me.
this isn’t something I just linked to all of this this was shown to me using apparently satans abilities showing me what these characters meant and even toy story the red haired female was created to represent this red haired female these beings created. Cartoon movies were being created while this was happening and Metallica created their own cartoons too. It’s hard to describe The details but it’s a deeply complex horrible messed up situation involving beings of the invisible world a very famous band who has their own abilities and a being with more abilities than all of these beings even trying to help the situation in his own way.
this isn’t craziness though it sounds it. I was on the swim Cartoon Network which is the satanic Cartoon Network and several cartoons were created right then and there about exactly what I was going through and one character looked exactly like some of the indian characters these beings created. I won’t get into the detail of the cartoons. There is a lot more involved and that happened and it was all a horrible complex situation

2020.08.08 21:47 Wbk1496 The dating scene in Daytona Beach

I am a recent college graduate male who has a job offer for a decent amount of money in Daytona Beach. What are the prospects of attractive women ages 18-23 in this area? is it good during Spring break and then a baron wasteland of cigarette smoking Biker women for the remainder of the year? just curious before I make a major life-altering decision.

2020.07.27 18:51 James1DPP WCW Monday Nitro Review (Sept 4, 1995 - May 20, 1996) - The Opening Salvos of the Monday Night War

A few months ago, I started to watch the episodes of WCW Monday Nitro from the very beginning. I just reached the May 27, 1996 episode where Nitro expands to two hours and Scott Hall debuts to kickoff the nWo invasion angle. Before I get into that episode, I wanted to review Nitro so far and give my general impressions on the show and highlight some must-see episodes, matches, and segments from the first phase of Nitro. I'm going from September 4, 1995 (the debut episode) to May 20, 1996 (the final episode before Scott Hall), since this is the old Nitro before the New World Order storyline begins.
General thoughts:
Announcers - Bobby Heenan is still great as the color commentator. Mongo McMichael is unpolished, but has a certain charm and enthusiasm at the booth (he is a guilty pleasure of mine). Bischoff is hit and miss during this period.
Surprises - Heel Lex Luger in 1996 is awesome, and he steals his scene multiple times on Nitro. Johnny B. Badd is really good in 1995 and was over huge with the crowd. Even in 1995 and 1996, you can see the potential in wrestlers like Dean Malenko, Eddie Guerrero, Chris Benoit, Diamond Dallas Page, and Booker T.
There is at least one instance of referee incompetence in every episode of Nitro - not just a mistake, but seemingly sheer ineptitude displayed by the WCW referees.
Hulk Hogan as a babyface isn't good on these Nitros, and he drags down everything and everyone he is involved in during this time. That includes Savage, Sting, Luger, Flair, Anderson, and the Dungeon of Doom. Hogan received numerous "worst" awards from Wrestling Observer in 1995, and he deserved them all based on his showings on Nitro.
Must-see episodes (for good or great reasons):
  1. September 4, 1995 - The Mall of America, Minneapolis, MN: This is the first episode of WCW Monday Nitro, and it debuts in the Mall of America. This is a sampling of what we would see on Nitro in the early run. This Nitro has a good cruiserweight match between Brian Pillman (pre-Loose Cannon gimmick) and Jushin Thunder Liger, a Sting vs Ric Flair match, and Hulk Hogan defending the WCW World Title in the main event. WCW fires its first shot against WWF in the Monday Night War when Lex Luger makes a surprise return to WCW after having wrestled for the WWF in St. John's, New Brunswick, Canada the day before. This was not the best episode of Nitro, but it was decent and it whets your appetite for what will come later on Nitro.
  2. October 2, 1995 - Denver, CO: This episode features Lex Luger vs. Randy Savage in the opening match, Eddie Guerrero vs. Dean Malenko in the Nitro debuts of both wrestlers, and Ric Flair vs. Arn Anderson in the main event. We also see the Dungeon of Doom gets heat on Hulk Hogan for once by attacking Hogan and shaving off Hogan's blonde mustache in the middle of the ring. The Eddie vs Dean match was the best match to date although the match was only five and a half minutes long. We would see better matches from these two both earlier in ECW and later in WCW, but this was still a pretty good match that leaves you looking forward to a rematch down the road. This was the best Nitro episode to date.
  3. January 8, 1996 - Charleston, SC: The card for this show is Chris Benoit (with Brian Pillman) vs. Alex Wright, Eddy Guerrero vs. Lord Steven Regal, Sting vs. Diamond Dallas Page, and Ric FlaiArn Anderson vs. Hulk Hogan/Randy Savage. The match with Regal and Eddy Guerrero was great (you will hear me say the Eddy Guerrero match was great a lot in this post). Diamond Dallas Page shows signs of what he will become in later 1996 and 1997, but he's not quite there yet. In the main event, Arn Anderson hits his spinebuster finisher on Hogan...which Hogan immediately no-sells. I laughed at that for all the wrong reasons. The Alliance to End Hulkamania comes out after the main event to attack Hogan and Savage. This was a really good show where Regal vs Eddy was great and everything else was good.
  4. February 19, 1996 - Salisbury, MD: This show has Hulk Hogan vs. Arn Anderson, Alex Wright vs. Loch Ness, The Belfast Bruiser (later known as Fit Finlay) vs. Brad Armstrong, and Ric Flair vs. Randy Savage for the WCW World Title. This was a great episode with the Flair-Savage and Belfast Bruiser-Armstrong matches both delivered.
  5. April 29, 1996 - Albany, GA: We have Sting/Lex Luger vs. Harlem Heat for the WCW World Tag Team Titles, Fire & Ice (Scott Norton and Ice Train) Vs. The Steiner Brothers, The Belfast Bruiser vs. Lord Steven Regal in a Parking Lot Brawl, and Flair vs. The Giant for the WCW World Title. Another great episode. The Giant pins Flair to become the new WCW Champion. The Parking Lot Brawl between Regal and Finlay was unique for its time and hard hitting (I think Regal says in his book that none of the cars used in the brawl were gimmicked, so all the windows, windshields, doors, bumpers etc were the actual car items. The only thing Regal and Finlay did in preparation of this match was to loosen one of the bumpers.) Fire & Ice vs. The Steiners was a nice, big hoss tag team match which was better than I expected - basically an early version of Suplex City here. Everything worked on this episode.
  6. May 6, 1996 - Daytona Beach, FL: We have Hugh Morrus vs. Randy Savage, Dean Malenko vs Jushin Thunder Liger, Lord Steven Regal vs. Sting, The Giant vs. Jim Duggan for the WCW World Title. Malenko vs. Liger was beautiful. Regal vs. Sting was pretty good as well. The main event served its purpose by putting over The Giant as a massive threat in WCW. The opening match served its purpose by putting over Randy Savage as an aggressive wild man. Another great episode here.
  7. May 20, 1996 - Monroe, LA: The Ric Flair Nitro episode. Ric Flair defeats Eddy Guerrero in a twenty minute match which might be the best Nitro match to date (another good Eddy Guerrero match). Then, Flair pours champagne on his head to cool down before cutting a great post-match promo. Falir tops it off by joining the commentary booth with Eric Bischoff and Bobby Heenan. Flair was really good at commentary and puts over wrestlers like Sting (best athlete in WCW), Brad Armstrong (one of the best wrestlers in WCW), DDP (Flair started to dig Page's style at the end of the match). Flair and Heenan sound like they are having the time of their lives on commentary the last half of the show. There was some fluff to this episode, but it's still an entertaining show IMO.
Must-see matches (for good or great reasons):
  1. September 18, 1995: Ric Flair vs. Brian Pillman
  2. October 2, 1995: Sabu vs. Mr. J.L.
  3. October 16, 1995: Eddie Guerrero vs. Chris Benoit
  4. November 13, 1995: Johnny B. Badd vs. Eddie Guerrero for the WCW World Television Title
  5. November 27, 1995: Bull Nakano & Akira Hokuto vs. Cutie Suzuki & Mayumi Ozaki
  6. December 4, 1995: Harlem Heat vs. The American Males for the WCW World Tag Team Titles
  7. December 11, 1995: Ric FlaiArn Anderson vs. Hulk Hogan/Sting Part 1 Part 2
  8. December 18, 1995: Ric Flair vs. Eddie Guerrero
  9. March 11, 1996: The Steiner Brothers vs. The Road Warriors
  10. April 22, 1996: Eddie Guerrero vs. Chris Benoit
  11. April 29, 1996: Lord Steven Regal vs. The Belfast Bruiser - Parking Lot Brawl
  12. May 6, 1996: Dean Malenko vs. Jushin Thunder Liger
  13. May 20, 1996: Ric Flair vs. Eddie Guerrero
Must-see moments and matches (for good or bad reasons):
  1. September 4, 1995 - Lex Luger returns to WCW - WCW fires the first shot of the Monday Night War.
  2. November 13, 1995 - Hulk Hogan promo - Hulk Hogan explores the dark side of Hulkamania. Hogan wears black and dresses like the Phantom of the Opera, wields a huge sword, and tells us that Randy Savage will bring us the head of Meng on a silver platter.
  3. November 20, 1995 - Hulk Hogan vs. Sting Part 1Part 2 - This is the first ever one-on-one match between Hogan and Sting, and we get it on free television. Hogan is dressed in black and white, and the crowd does not like him at all. We start off with Mongo McMichael botching a comparison of Bobby Heenan's face and Mongo's butt and the match just goes downhill from here. This match sucked.
  4. December 11, 1995 - The Four Horsemen attack Paul OrndorffPart 1Part 2 - This was the best the Four Horsemen have looked since Nitro started. The Four Horsemen attack Paul Orndorff and leave him down with a piledriver onto the concrete floor.
  5. December 18, 1995 - Medusa trashes the WWF Women's Title- This was the second biggest shot of the Monday Night War by WCW.
  6. January 1, 1996 - The beginning of "Loose Cannon" Brian Pillman
  7. January 15, 1996 - The Four Horsemen/Dungeon of Doom Promo - This promo features Arn Anderson slapping the absolute piss out of Brian Pillman.
  8. February 26, 1996 - LugeSting/The Road Warriors Promo - The Road Warriors challenge Luger and Sting to a Chicago Street Fight. Luger accepts the match on behalf of his team, and then asks Gene Okerlund what a Chicago Street Fight is. Luger during this time period is great.
  9. March 11, 1996 - FlaiAnderson/Kevin Sullivan vs. Hogan/Savage/The Booty Man in a Lumberjack Strap Match - Just a horrible, glorious mess of a match.
  10. April 15, 1996 - Hogan vs. Arn Anderson/Kevin Sullivan in a Handicap Match - This is babyface Hulk Hogan at his most insufferable here.

2020.07.23 05:20 baronesslucy [MS] One of my strangest cases

My name is Police Chief Brian Morrison. I started as a patrol officer in 1978 and retired in February of 2020. I was the police chief of a small beach town on the East Coast of Florida. Orange Grove Island was the name of the city. It was North of Daytona Beach (between Daytona Beach and St. Augustine) but a quiet town for the most part. The town didn't allow for large condos or building above four stories high to be built. That kept the town character rather quaint.
I was married back in the 1980's and then divorced. I have two grown children and three grandchildren. I remarried back in 1990. Sadly my second wife Sally died in 2004. Totally unexpected. For the past several years I've dated a woman who lives in Penscola. We have a long distance relationship. Because of Covid-19, we talked on the computer or on the phone. Haven't seen her since March. My kids like her which is good.
Since the early 1980's, some anonymous person has sent a variety of audio tapes, VCR tapes and DVD tapes with a note saying that crimes has been committed and stuff that was being sent was connected. They were sent to several law enforcement agencies up and down the Eastern Seaboard of Florida. Most of the people on the tapes couldn't be identified.
Now that I'm retired and Covid-19 has basically confined me to my house, I decided to take a second look at these audio tapes, VCR and DVD tapes. Several agencies threw away these audio tapes, VCR tapes and DVD recordings. My uncle kept them and gave them to me shortly after he retired. He really didn't know to make of them as no actual crime was spoken of or recorded. I had heard some of the recordings when he first got them back in the day.
Most of the audio tapes are of private conversations of citizens about very mundane things. A few of the conversations I recognized the voices. One of them was rather amusing. It was the first audio tape that was sent in April of 1982. Clara Matthews was about 80 years old in 1982. She was at her home which was right on the beach talking with her best friend Florence Gray about an orchestra concert that Orange Grove College put on. Her grandson played the clarinet in the Orchestra.
For those who don't know, Orange Grove college is a private Episcopalian college. About 1, 000 students, many of whom are in the orchestra. Robert Hall is Clara Matthew's grandson. I knew him as we attended the same high school, Orange Grove High.
"I really enjoyed going with you to the concert Clara. Robert did so well."
"I know he did very well. I know that he was pretending not to look at me but I know he was."
"Well, Clara you were whispering to me rather loudly during the performance."
"I wasn't that loud, Florence, I mean really."
I had to laugh when I would think of their conversations. Their voices carried. I lived next door from Clara, so I often heard the conversations that she had with Florence. The two women passed on decades ago.
Robert Hall played the clarinet and he recently retired from the Kansas City Orchestra after many years playing there.
The family had a good reputation. I tried to figure out what crime was committed. Maybe the person didn't like classical music, didn't like how Robert played the clarinet or maybe the person was jealous of Robert. I remember my uncle saying this.
We both laughed about this one but it was wasting the time and resources of the law enforcement agencies. Because it was labeled evidence of possible crime, the agencies that got it had to investigate to see if this was the case. It was nearly 10 years before the law enforcement agencies realized that other agencies were getting the same thing.
One of the VCR tapes which was made back in 1989 was leaked to a tabloid magazine who had a field day with it. Everyone knew that Monica Snowden was probably going to make it big as an actress. She had talent and was in many local plays. Rock Star Kevin Press had gone to the little dinner theater in 1984 and had seen Monica perform in the play Snow White. She had just graduated from high school but didn't know what to do with her life.
She ended up being a dancer in several music videos and they got married two weeks after her 18th birthday. Kevin was 26 years old. The marriage lasted 5 years and produced twin daughters. The video recording was secretly done. Kevin and Monica were separating and they were at her grandmother's home talking. Both were sitting at a table across from each other. Both were quite upset with each other.
"I'm going to tell everyone in your family's church what you did Monica. Do 'want me to do that? You weren't some sweet innocent virgin when we got married. I tell them that we sleep together before we were married. I'm sure they already know this, but they pretend like they don't.
"You know Kevin, I don't care if you do. I'm sure they already know that. You told everyone on nationwide TV about it."
That I do remember. My then wife Karen liked to watch one of the late night shows and Kevin made a comment about it. Monica couldn't stop laughing but I could tell she was mortified. A couple of weeks later, they split up due to his cheating.
They argued about his cheating. Kevin blamed her for his cheating. She wasn't having any of it and they had a rather heated but surprisingly civil discussion about it (they didn't cuss each other out or call each other names). It was Monica that happened to notice people on the beach had gathered and had listened to most of their arguing. She went back into the house as did Kevin.
Someone had called concerned about a verbal argument between them. When I responded to the call, Kevin was still at the house. I've been to many domestic disturbances. I asked the usual questions and determined it was a verbal dispute and there was no violence.
Everyone had to put their two cents in after this VCR tape was released. It wasn't aired on TV but people got copies of it. The tape didn't include me going into the house but did include me talking to Kevin in front of the house.
Two days later, Kevin called me on the phone as I had left my business card. He was upset about the VCR tape. I already knew about it because it had been sent to our agency by a concerned citizen. I decided not to tell him this.
"What about the people that gathered on the beach near Monica's grandmother's home when you were arguing? One of them could have filmed you. It wouldn't be too difficult and secondly you were out in a public where you could be filmed from a public place. I know that they weren't locals. I have no idea who they were."
I found out later from Monica that they had tried to find out who had sent out this VCR tape and were never able to do so. Technically this wasn't a crime as the person who did it didn't come on the property to film them.
Monica became an actress and did many TV shows and movie. A lot of the movies were family type movies as Monica was one who would not do R rated movies. She married a guy who played the drums in a progressive Christian rock band. This was probably more her style. She had three more children.
The VCR tapes like the audio tapes were of being doing mundane things. Most of the people I had no idea who they were. Again no criminal activity. The DVD's were the same except for one. The tape didn't involve criminal activity but involved some very upset people about a change in their college status. This involved Monica's twin daughters.
2016
Both daughters Stephanie and Vicky were art teachers at an arts and drama college in Maine. The school had been struggling financially and was being bought by a religious college known to be very conservative. The art school had been secular and basically the facility and the students weren't subject to being censored or told what they could or couldn't do. The college then would decide who they would hire. None of the facility or students knew this, so it was a shock.
A week later - Party at the art school
Stephanie and Vicky were talking about losing their jobs. The twins were very different. Stephanie marched to the beat of her own drummer. She had done art for various promotions of heavy metal bands. When her father had gone on tour during the summer, she had played the guitar. She often dressed like a woman who would be or hung up with a heavily metal band. Her art work was very edgy at times.
Vicky dressed more classically. Her art work was more conventional, not anything that would be controversial but the religious group found fault with her work.
Neither one of them was surprised when they heard they had been fired. In fact the religious group had fired the entire art staff as they didn't fit into their vision of the college. None of the 350 students were accepted into the college because they refused to sign a college student code.
At the party they had talked about this. Monica was at the party as was her father Kevin.
One of the students was sobbing.
"Stephanie, Vicky, I'm going to miss you."
"It's okay, Sally, It's okay. I'm going to hate to leave."
"Well, guys, I will be on tour with my dad playing the guitar in his band. I also will be doing the art work for the T-shirts for his band. My sister Vicky will be at her art gallery."
Everyone clapped and cheered. Then people went off in their own areas.
"You know Stephanie, you were really good when that radio host attacked your personally."said Monica.
"Mom, I know that he wanted me to get upset, cuss him out (he would have loved it if I did that) but I wasn't going to give him the satisfaction of it. "
"Oh, why didn't you, Stephanie. You're good at cussing.." said Kevin.
"Yea, I am. I'm already been called out by two pastors for having a mouth like a sailor. I cussed even more just to rattle them. Vicky also joined in. Poor mom, I'm embarrassed her.""
"Not really, I knew it was coming but Vicky I was rather surprised."
'Stephanie's a bad influence on me, what can I say?"
The rest of the tape showed clips from Stephanie touring with her father's band. A male voice was condemning her and the rest of the group at the art school.
I heard that Stephanie just laugh at it but Vicky was quite upset about it. Monica and Kevin had no comment. This one was put on youtube and quickly went viral.
That was the last audio tape, VCR tape and DVD that I received. About ten years ago the other agencies that were getting these tapes told me that they were going to trash them as no crimes were committed.
I never caught who was doing this. Again no crimes were committed so what was the motive of this person? The tapes were never mailed from the same place. All over the country. We had a few residences who were world travelers but they were older people.
Did this person think it was funny what they were doing? Were they taunting law enforcement? On one of the tapes, the voice which was altered had said that they got no money from this and weren't the person who released the tapes to the public.
I really believe that the person who was doing this had died. It's one case I will never solve.

2020.07.19 15:52 systolicfire Issues with rescheduling COMLEX

Okay, to preface this, this question isn't for me but for a friend, I've already taken COMLEX.
She is supposed to be taking her exam 7/24 (this coming Friday) in Daytona Beach (moving for rotations). However, she needs to reschedule it because she is not ready for it.
She went to reschedule it by going through the NBOME's website, but the box where COMLEX is listed doesn't give her any option to reschedule. It only gives her the option to cancel, and no exam time is listed.
I don't think this is normal, but then again, I didn't log into the NBOME site in the week before my exam.
Does anyone know what's going on? Or is anyone else having a similar issue? I'm at a loss and I can't even go see if I'm having the same issue because I took COMLEX last week. I also don't know if this is maybe a testing site issue (ex. re-closing) and if there are people with step 1 scheduled there who may know or what's going on.
Edit - thanks guys! I didn’t realize how it worked because I kept my date and didn’t log into NBOME within 5 days prior so I wasn’t sure how it worked

2020.07.03 01:28 nxtxng [HR] Cold.

Panic.
His eyes shoot open to the emotion of panic, not knowing which emotion is meant to be felt. His mind has woken him in ways that he was not sure he would be awake for. There is something itching, gnawing at his soul, waiting for the perfect moment to break out, and consume himself whole. He remembers nothing. He is unable to even fathom the idea of getting into this situation, but when the thought is provoked, he is unsure of what his mind is.
It’s cold. The area he has found himself in is so unbearably cold, he is unsure what is attached to his body anymore. The room is completely white, the whitest color that would burn the retina from eye sockets. The room does not have a name, but it does have a presence. It is entrapped with anger, something that is unrelenting, that is unable to show any mercy to anyone, or anything. He is not sure what is what, and who is who.
His name is not important. He does not have a quality that would be considered “memorable” to those who have passed by him at the local supermarket. He is something that someone could remember the idea of him being somewhere, but when looks come to mind, there isn’t anything that is able to jog the random stranger’s mind. He has lived a life of surviving, but not one that is a struggle. You see, there comes something in which a social narrative is presented. He works a job, the same 5 days, the same 8 hours, and comes home to the same home that he has modestly gotten for himself.
His work does not show his worth, in fact his work just scrapes by under the idea of what is considered acceptable. This isn’t meant to be a bad thing, though. Sometimes mediocrity does wonders for a simple mind, because this ends up meaning it is not a loss. A loss is something crushing, something that is unrecoverable. A loss is something that cannot be replaced, nor the emotions attached to it. A victory is something that the man has never had in his life. He has never been the one to be at the top of the mountain, where he is able to have a presentation made of him, so that those who choose to watch can help celebrate the success he has accomplished. No, this man would not know what to do with such a feeling.
More often than not, he is left wondering what winning might feel like if he was able to garner that. In reality, he understands that winning isn’t forever, but a moment that is constantly fleeting, as every second that passes is one closer to having the moment end. A winner does win, but the question starts to become how long that moment of winning is.
He feels like the room could speak to him, explain why he is in there, or where he actually was. Instead, he hears nothing. In fact, he does not even see anything besides white. There is no bed underneath him, there is no object even in the room. His head is facing straight to the ceiling, where he is living in a state of paralysis, due to the fear of looking down and seeing no part of his body that he remembered.
Remember. Come to think of it, what did he remember? Does he remember the thrill of a roller coaster at an amusement park, or the feeling of butterflies fluctuating from his stomach to his rib cage when asking the one true love on a date? No, he did not remember any of this. These weren’t thoughts that popped into his mind, because he never had those thoughts. Someone, something, is pushing memories, thoughts, ideas through his brain, in order to pretend to make a happy life out of a human being. He understands everything, but feels nothing.
His feet. He can feel his toes, which have been moving for the entirety of his consciousness. The feeling of the cold, bright area has somehow infected his nerves, making every movement of each toe shoot receptors of pain to his brain, if this was even his own brain. It’s so easy, right? To use the strength to get onto his feet, place one foot in front of the other and walk towards… something. While this thought controls his mind, he forgets that it’s not just feet that the action of walking requires, but the rest of his entire being. His brain is unsure of what to do next. Does he risk his body, stand tall and just… do it? No, of course not. It can’t be that simple. Walking takes time, years even, to master, which is why it’s our first moment we can remember. Walking is a natural process that is never taught to us, only implied. Our brains are programmed from the birth to figure out how to get to Point A, to Point B.
He pushes energy throughout his limbs, to hopefully provoke the rest of his body to do the same. His palms are now cold, as they are pressed firmly on the ground. His elbows are bent, and his mind has finally described the grand idea to the rest of his body. He pushes hard against his palms, letting the cold floor radiate through his arms, to his neck. His effort is enough, as he is suddenly standing. It’s almost like he is unsure of how he’s standing, as he doesn’t even remember telling his legs to balance to the weight.
Straight ahead, is white. To his left, is white. Behind him, white. To his right, there is bleak white, but there is also something that he cannot see, but can feel. He can feel a pull towards this direction. He worries if this is cliche, as every decision that is considered good, always ends up carrying the word “right”. In his defense, it’s not like there is anything else he could argue would be the correct decision, so right will have to do.
“It’ll have to do” is a phrase he can remember, but he is unsure of why. After all, he isn’t even sure that his own thoughts are his own. The thought describes itself, as him. “It’ll have to do” has been his mantra. This is the true meaning of mediocrity. All of his life, or what he’s thought to be his life, has been riddled with his decision making by making the safest, and easiest choices. How easy would it be to just do your work, and obey your bosses commands? Wouldn’t it be a lot easier than pushing back, and having one individualistic thought? Of course it would be. Which is why he has chosen that. He understands nothing about who he is, and understands nothing about his potential as a human being. He knows no one can feel an emotion similar to him, so he chooses what’s easiest.
He is upset, but unsure why. He doesn’t know why this thought has burdened his mind, and doesn’t know why there are tears welling in his eyes. The tears stream constantly, as if he had just witnessed a loved one's death in front of him, as he sat on his hands and allowed the casualty to happen. His feet have decided his brain cannot handle a white, lonely room, so they press on. His left foot following his right foot, as he is walking into nothing. He can feel the burden of guilt consume him. What has he to feel guilt for? Has he done anything wrong in this cold, white room? No, that can’t be it. Selfishness runs through his bones, running rampant to the end of his toes, to the top of his skull. He is selfish but does not know why. Could he have done something wrong? Does he have the willpower to make a choice that is wrong? Of course he can’t, because that would mean a loss. A defeat in his own brain, which he could never bear to handle.
The white continues, to the point he is unsure of what shape even made this area that he is continuing to walk down. He can feel wind against his face. He can feel the coldest air against his face, as it’s pushing back. He is running, running as hard and as fast as his lungs can command air. He has been sprinting, for a period of time, which will never be known. He has another thought, a thought that he is confused by again. He thinks that this is his fault. This couldn’t be his fault, because if it was, he would have some central feeling of understanding why he’d lock himself in such a boring, bleak room. His mind is racing around the same lap just like at Daytona, no new information has been brought to the forefront of his mind. He is sprinting, aimlessly running towards no destination. He has begun to feel again in his feet, which were now calloused from running for so long. He continues to run, until the force of something makes him stop.
He is faced with the same white layout he has now grown accustomed to. There is nothing different, except for the fact he is unable to move. He is naked in front of nothing, but feels caught in front of everyone at the beach. He feels. He knows, and he feels.
SCCCRRRRAAAAPE.
Abruptly, something scrapes the side of the walls, whatever they may be made of. The scrape sounds awful, like there is nothing worse in this world that could ever produce that type of cringe again.
SCCCRRRRAAAAPEEEEEEEEEEEE.
Another one, this time louder and more drawn out. The sound keeps on it’s E and doesn’t let up. The sound is growing closer, and his fear is multiplying at an alarming rate. He cannot move. He cannot even control his breaths. He is processing the feeling of anxiety and fear, but cannot physically feel this. For a second, the scraping had dulled out to a low eee before coming back up, and stopping right behind where he stood.
He closes his eyes out of instinct, which is what you do when you’re scared, right? The big scary monster is coming towards you, so the only logical idea is to close your only source of vision out, and have no idea what is going to happen to you.
He stood there, for what seemed like years, maybe even centuries with his eyes closed, waiting for the exact moment. The exact moment that fear, pain, and anxiety would all collide together to make the ever sought after feeling of death. Death would finally come. Death could take him from here, and place him somewhere else. Maybe that place is worse, but at least he could some day begin to understand what happens in places like that.
A long, singular fingernail is placed on his right shoulder. He feels the cool touch of the nail, curved at the end, almost pointed. There is no tap, there is no grab, there is only this one singular nail resting on his shoulder. The feeling of this is not so much fear, but rather acceptance. Acceptance that he is here to learn about what he did, or what happened to him. The only logical idea is that this is heaven, or hell, nothing in between. The nail stayed resting on his shoulder, no more force applied, or even moving in the slightest. Acceptance quickly turned to anger, as he could not understand what was taking so long.
“COME ON!” he yelled as it echoes between the hallway “COME ON ALREADY AND DO IT!”
More silence. Somehow, an even deeper silence. His hands begin to sweat, as his body is now understanding there is something wrong. He still cannot move. He is unable to move anything besides his mouth, which he does not understand himself.
“Please, whoever this is, wherever I am, please just stop this now.” He is now speaking in a lower, hush tone. “I don’t care if I die. I don’t care what happens next. Just… make whatever this is stop.”
He can now hear soft laughter, almost a chuckle. This angers him completely. If he was able to show, he would have tears welled in his eyes, face as red as blood, and would attempt to combat the person or thing behind him.
“I don’t know what this is, what you want from me, or what you are going to do to me, but please. Just do it. Just end this.” He shouted facing the white hallway.
The nail starts to dig. Dig deep into his skin. The nail, somehow, is inside his skin, right above his bones. He can feel the fingernail scraping his bones as he makes his way down from the shoulder, to the hip, all the way to his toes. If he were able to see, he could see the singular fingernail, bulging under his skin, pressing forward. There is no blood. There is only pain. He thinks and he feels. He understands but knows nothing. He is a product of his own head. He understands that he is nothing. He understands to feel. He truly is understanding how to feel. The nail is not an image of horror, but rather the great parts of this universe. He is bliss. He has achieved elite. He now understands the athletes and philanthropists, because he is now them. He can see their billion dollar net worth, and relationships with those who only see the numerical value. He is becoming unstoppable, nearly a God. The nail is now pressing towards the right of his body, shedding threads of skin. The pressure is slight, but enough to understand it’s still there. He is gleeful, smiling now with his eyes closed, taking control of his body once more. When had he been able to smile? The nail is now pushing outwards even more, applying distress to his own skin. Discoloration and broken veins outline his right side of his body, until he feels the final moment of ecstasy, and feels his entire body disconnect. First was his rib cage, the nail had hooked underneath his ribs, and exploded from pressure. Punctured ribs stick outside of his chest, without the sight of blood. His hip shattered into 32 different pieces, causing debris across the floor. His legs at once broke through his muscle and skin. His entire right side is protruding skeletal bones. His femur, shin and toe bones have all cut their way through, as his skin finally has decided it cannot take anymore.
An explosion, one that rivals the stars. A cosmos of pink, purple and red erupt, all for him to not see. The most beautiful, raw moment of his life, and he was still unable to see. He has finally become, and his own eyes betray him. He presses them tighter, with the smile growing, as he feels the gradual ecstasy of what is to be. He cannot understand how he has lived life without this emotion. A moment, nothing more than this. This is all he has needed to become one. He finally knows, and understands the world. He knows how the animals survive, how the plants and soil work, or how the magma pops just beneath him. A lifetime of unknowing has plagued him, but here, here NOW, he knows. He understands and he feels.
The moment fleets. The moment passes. The entire meaning of his existence has now passed, just like the last one did. He presses his eyes tighter, almost daring himself to have his eyes explode like his right side body. The sound and feeling have since stopped. The hallway is still and quiet, and he no longer feels pain. He in fact, does not feel anything. An enigma, but nothing more. Not the ground beneath his feet, not the air that he breathes, he feels nothing. He dares himself to open his eyes, see what is truly waiting for him behind the thin layer of skin protecting his eyes. It almost feels like a lifetime of work has encompassed this journey, that this entire build up had meant something. He opens his eyes to a white room. He is laying down, on the floor, with nothing beneath him. He is cold.

2020.07.03 00:38 nxtxng Cold.

Panic.
His eyes shoot open to the emotion of panic, not knowing which emotion is meant to be felt. His mind has woken him in ways that he was not sure he would be awake for. There is something itching, gnawing at his soul, waiting for the perfect moment to break out, and consume himself whole. He remembers nothing. He is unable to even fathom the idea of getting into this situation, but when the thought is provoked, he is unsure of what his mind is.
It’s cold. The area he has found himself in is so unbearably cold, he is unsure what is attached to his body anymore.

2020.06.27 02:06 baby_meatus Would anyone want to read the rest of this story? Should I turn this in to a book?

How would I expand this? I want to write a book.

Junior year of University, I was approached by M(atty)M(oe) he was goading me to apply to a community service organization, the Bonner program, which rewards students accepted with a $5,000 check. Reluctantly, I applied and shockingly I was accepted into the program, which also included the aforementioned scholarship. Upon receipt of the scholarship check I stood at my mailbox for about 10 minutes $5000 seemed like a small fortune to me, a check of $5000 was almost license to drink myself into oblivion, or throw my fraternity a party completely funded by yours truly.
Nervously, I walked over to the registrars office of Stetson University and said; "Ummm I believe you’ve made a mistake, this check does not belong to me…" They tell me in return, "No that’s your award for being accepted into Bonner."
My head was spinning from the absolute good fortune of doggedly pursuing the philanthropic streak in me, and heeding MMs advice. I was trying to decide what to do with the money; "I could throw my fraternity a party…I could invest it, but any investment right now is suicide…I could buy a motorcycle…" I decided to go with motorcycle, not immediate suicide, I would at least get an dopamine rush on a daily basis. I might even attract a few girls!
Side note: the 'investment option" would have been the best option, I was presenting the equity: SNA, to the board of trustees for purchase into the school endowment portfolio, at time of check receipt, SNA (Snap-On), the equity I was presenting, was trading around $30-35/share (it touched $29/share on the day I made my presentation). At time of writing SNA was trading at $183.59/share. Upon receipt of the scholarship money that was gifted to me, for my good deeds towards humanity, I could have bought 5000/35 = 142 shares of SNA, 142*183=~$30,000. Though no (not) sane 20 year old kid would want to lock their money up for eternity and buy stocks and bonds, that is for old people… like 25 year olds.
I went down to Deland Motorsports with my best friend to browse a few insane 'crotch rockets,' Id learnt that an I-4, or inline 4 cylinder, motorcycle would be vastly overpowered for a 'squid*. Accepting this, I decided on a , very powerful Suzuki SV650s, a sane choice for a "noob."
*squirrely kid
With the final signature of some loan document (stupidly I wasnt not paying very close attention to the verbiage, or amounts - pretty incredible for a finance major) a sudden Dopamine wave went through my body. Holy shit, I thought, do I own another motor vehicle? Im going to get so many girls(!) but I am dating JL… Perhaps her friends will badger her incessantly, and she'll cave and bring another girl into the mix.
None of that happened. Though I did hook up with one if the 'hottest' girls at Stetson, MC, and she specifically said: "you look so 'hawt' riding your motorcycle back from intramural Soccer games, shirtless." Which I interpreted as a flirtatious vote lauding the purchase of that death machine, exactly the type of thing I had in mind when making the purchase. Then there was CZ, Im fairly certain she didn’t have a sexual motivation activated by the motorcycle, this was just a girl who was 'thirsty.' The summer between Junior and Senior year I was selected (incredibly) for an internship with Morgan Stanley, I remember getting the call, in April 2007:
"Hello, could we speak with Nicolas Uppal?"
ohhhh shit what did I do now? "Speaking" I said
"Congratulations Nicolas! You’ve been selected to be a Junior Financial analyst with the GWMG group at Morgan Stanley! You have two options: Beverly Hills or Downtown LA"
All my friends and family can tell you how I was constantly professing to 'adore city life,' and how 'I felt empty if I did not see anything in the sky.' However, the option laid out in front of me required some deliberation, time I did not have. "Uh uh uh Beverly Hills" I blurted out.
"Excellent choice we will send you a confirmation email with the next steps included. Welcome aboard."
Holy sh!t, I thought, im a rising Senior and I already have employment plans.
I immediately called my mother, and let her know the great news.
"I hope you & BPJ approve of this." Quickly explain the Morgan Stanley tale.
"Bien sur que il va etre excite, et mois aussi!"
"Awesome, I have class, talk to you soon, love you."
And with that I thought my future was coming together. I putted around campus for the remainder of my Junior and Senior years, occasionally riding out to Daytona beach, thinking: "this is so cool thank god for this helmet though, I didn’t have the cash to buy one there! Im glad the dealer included one with the sale." That call came at the perfect time to fully let loose over spring break.
For Spring Break; I went to Key West with GA, EM, CF, and DS - we had a blast. I don’t think there was a 5-minute space when all 5 of us were not drunk or high. Then, GA and I had the brilliant idea of renting 49cc scooters and terrorizing Duvall St. We were wrong, Duvall St. terrorized us, EM got into a fight with a bouncer at some popular bar on the strip on Duvall St. EM destroyed him, he just sat on the entrance steps as all 5 of us stumbled in, then 10 minutes and 5 drinks later, we stumbled out, mounted our scooters and safely made it back to our motel, this episode only reinforced my feeling of being invincible.
The next day GA and I were racing on the mopeds around Key West, seeing some traffic up ahead I decided to ramp on to the sidewalk and ride on the sidewalk and 'bunnyhop' down off the sidewalk, thus ensuring my victory. GA pulled up next to me laughing his ass off, from that point forward it didn’t matter if we were drunk, high, or both - we were jumping off sidewalks. Amazingly, none of us went down, except for CF who gave the scooter too much throttle on the sand, lost the rear end and the scooter fishtailed out from underneath him in some sand. Schadenfreude, I thought. Good thing im (slightly) more skilled at riding scooters.
We then had our final night out, just got really drunk didn’t do anything to prepare for the ride back up to Dea(d)land, and await the final 2 months of school.
In the final 2 months of Senior year I attended Ultra Music Festival, I was so in to progressive house and was known around campus for my love affair with House music. In fact DS and I hosted a radio show called "Techno story time," where we would 'drop' the sickest track we had heard during the previous week, and between tracks I would tell an 'R'/'X' rated story of the debauchery. Looking back on this, I must've seemed like such a douchebag, literally kissing and telling whoever had the misfortune of tuning in. Ultra (UMF) was in Miami a 7 hour drive, too pusillanimous to take 'Brutus,' (I wanted to keep him in excellent condition, keep the mileage low) I decided to take the motorcycle.
I recall that going to Miami on a motorcycle was so draining, but as always I was able to overcome that challenge and arrive in Miami with time to spare. I crashed on JLs brothers couch at UM, what an awesome guy for putting up with a smelly, dirty guy who was banging his sister. Damn, in retrospect, I cant really forgive myself for breaking up with JL a year later
At Ultra Music Fest had an awesome time, I didn’t do any drugs, get drunk, or makeout/flirt/hookup with anyone else or smoke Cannabis (although you could smell the cannabis smoke 2-3 miles away). On the drive back, I decided to go as fast as I could (actually I just really really missed JL and wanted to get to Stetson sooner) I remember having the bike at 135 MPH (engine speed limit, were it not for that or I wouldve gone much faster - so that speed limiter was a good thing) for ~30 minutes on the long and boring interior highway FL91. 91 to I-4 to US 17 to JLs arms!
The final 2 months until graduation were essentially a self-imposed retirement; I had no projects due, no finals and before leaving to Ultra Fest '09 I had just given my bond presentation. I was a free man - with no employment lined up. The drawbacks of going to a small, unknown and not-well-connected-outside-of-Florida school were beginning to become apparent
During graduation, I don’t know why I was so somber, I stuck around after graduating for a few nights to party with the boys and be with JL before I departed towards the unknown of adulthood. Upon returning to Atlanta I just assumed that I would be able to 'crash' in my old room, without having a job. Luckily, about 4 months in to my joblessness my great friend from school KD was able to hook up an interview for me with his company, AT&T. I interviewed well, but I really think KD had it already arranged to have me hired, they just wanted to vet me. I interviewed and was subsequently hired to do some business analytics/data cleaning. While working at AT&T I did great work making fun of my superior AM, however, I was not entirely clear on my task. I know I was supposed to measure the times from product purchase to online implementation. Beyond that, However the work was a sinecure until I was hired by MS. We moved buildings, 1 block to a massive, wide open cubicle farm, there may have been ~1000 cubicles in that room - and my cubicle was positioned so that the screen of my computer was visible to everyone who walked in.
Despite being assigned to a less than desirable spot. I worked, not hard but I made sure I completed all my tasks. About 2 months into my 'shafting' I decided to fly to FLL, Ft. Lauderdale, to visit JL, I missed her so badly. I didn’t just miss the sex, I missed the affection, I missed the unconditional love. I had no idea what it was that drew me so close to JL, but I kept going to her. While I was visiting JL she suggested that we go to a dog racing track, having only been to one before, I went to a dog racing track in Daytona Beach with AGs dad and my BFF NB, I agreed the event was not too memorable. However, on the drive back from the track I received a call from the connection I made during my internship with MS, the Managing Director of HR, CNG.
CNG informed me of a position in Coral Gables, Miami FL working with one of her friends JFG. Since I was already in Naples, 90 miles from Miami, I replied with: "I can be there to interview in two days…" With that I experienced another endorphin rush, I ffelt like my future was being laid out in front of me, I just had to secure this job, work my ass off, endure a few years of menial pay until I am promoted to 'Associate' and pay for JL to move in with me. This was especially alluring to me because it seemed like my best friends were getting amazing jobs; RL (my best friend) was working at a PE shop in ATL, and my good friend MS was consulting with McKinsey in Dubai, then again they went to awesome schools Emory and Wharton, respectively.
After my interview with JFG I drove back to Naples for a night before flying back to Atlanta,. It finally felt like I was entering adulthood. I got the position in Miami, I then attempted to put in my two weeks at AT&T when I tried to put in my two weeks my supervisor, AM, said: "No need, you don’t need to come back tomorrow." So with that I was a free man for 2 months, it felt eerily similar to finishing Stetson. I set about organising my departure and move to Miami.
I quickly realised that I was too poor to remotely make a down payment on a condo sight-unseen, so I meekly implored JL to ask her brother, RL, to allow me to crash on his couch for '1 week at most.' I felt like such a bum, living in the UM dorms, working for MS but not having a place to call my own. I had to make a change, so I went around my office asking if anyone needed or knew of anyone who needed a roommate. Luckily, a friend of my then boss, JFG, also had an analyst on his team, RM. We met and quickly agreed to cohabitate an apartment.
Living with RM was fairly easy, he was a very agreeable roommate, I think I pulled the best hand out of the deal,I made sure I got the master suite of the apartment while paying 10% less than RM, I feel like an asshole thinking back on it - but capitalism makes you do things against your human nature. We got into an ok apartment if it were not for the recession of 08-09 we would have never been able to afford it.
About 2 months after I finalized living with RM, Ultra '11 was gearing up, knowing that I was not earning enough to afford a $230 ticket, I begged JL to buy the ticket for our 2 year anniversary. She did! I thought; oh man I love this girl so much, I cant wait to spend the rest o my life with her. My friends GA and DS also were at UMF '11, we had a blast. None of us got too high, drunk or messed up, and strangely I never got GA or EM back to my apartment even though it was 2 blocks from Bayfront park.
I recouped for 12 hours, slept off the alcohol and cannabis, and showed up for work that Monday, probably looking like shit. A few months later, I decided to look up my Boss during my internship, GD. When we connected he was so glad to hear from me, he was unsure if I had been hired. Two calls later he gave me two things: a task to test a Mercedes E55 AMG(we were both gearheads), a job offer in Beverly Hills. Having just the task to test drive the car wouldve been enough, but a job offer in LA? My mind began racing, I had a flexible start date so I was able to gradually close things out and speak with my portfolio manager. Although a favor was called in to get me hired, JFG had no qualms about letting me go.
A month later I went out for my birthday with KG, we werent dating but she had an enormous crush on me, infact she came to Stetson to visut me, much to the chagrin of Jenny. We went to a few small bars, and ended up at club LIV, it was there I met the most beautiful girl I ever laid eyes on, Viviane G. from Rio, much to my amazement she was in to me as well (probably because at the time I had a head of black hair, this made me look like a Brazilian model). Vivi (as I called her) and I hit it off we spent the rest of my time in Miami together, we never kissed, this is why I felt ok staying with Jenny.
Then, a car and yacht show, 1 block from my apartment spurred the motivation to call and break up with Jenny, strangely. I thought Vivi was the woman of my dreams, I didn’t take in to consideration everything Jenny, and her family, had done for me
I took 2 months to finish up in Miami, going out every night to get the last feel of Miami nightlife before I ventured out to the great unknown west. Once again, like in Miami, I arrived in LA and had to 'crash' on my moms good friend LDs guest bedroom, until I got my situation squared away. I was able to quickly secure an apartment 2 blocks from Hollywood Ave., with a view of the Hollywood sign. "Oh man," I thought "I must be the flossiest Stetson graduate right now." I soon came to learn that DS was in LA too, we linked up and I found my smoking/drinking partner while I was in LA.
Work in the Beverly Hills branch of Morgan Stanley was not overly intense, I was just working with a few extra figures. This increase in amount magnified any mistake I made, and I made quite a few mistakes, luckily these were only mistakes on internal reporting documents my managers (one in Beverly Hills and the other in Boston) were pretty cool with it, but still pointed these mistakes out. I remember the team assistant, AT, being so gorgeous, she was taken, or I wouldve been all over that, I wanted to marry her. There were three women that I wanted to marry: 1 - Vivi, 2 - Jenny, 3 - AT
About 2 months in to living in Los Angeles AT, told me about the website Thrillist. I thought "wow Thrillist is so cool, all these awesome events…wait whats thus 'Rental Car Rally?'" The more I read about it, the more I became supremely interested and thought, oh man my friend GA would be PERFECT as my co pilot. I kept thinking about all the hijinks we would get in to, and the speeding, and the (name your debaucherous activity here). GA flew out to LA, we secured a rental Camaro SS coupe and headed for the rally.
We get to the staging area and we see a flood of other cars, buses, and people dressed in ridiculous outfits "this is going to be too much fun!" we said to each other. As the staging process moves on we see some incredible car decorations, and at the end of the pre-rally warm up we are given the option to race on a circle track, being the speed demons that GA & I were, we A B S O L U T E L Y took full advantage of that option. There was no passing allowed, and a quarter track length between each racer. We stage in line - our turn comes up and I bury the throttle, the rear tires barely having grip as we rocket onto the track, I didn’t dare to go above 125 MPH sine I was unsure about the condition of the tires. As we finished what was essentially a penis-size competition, I decided to do an enormous burnout in the middle of the track. After that burnout we were off to the races.
The rally was set up as a series of checkpoints, you have to take a photo at each checkpoint for proof you were there. First checkpoint: LA Zoo. Going to a zoo during the day is interesting, and smelly. At night however, its frightening different sounds and screams from other ralliers in the distance, we took a photo and drove, withi the speed limits, o course, to the next check point. This checkpoint was an abandoned ski lodge, perfect for messing around on abandoned ski lifts. After the ski lodge, we vebtured out into the desert, we only had 1 checkpoint between the LA Zoo and Vegas, and that checkpoint was on the very western edge of Nevada, a brothel - GA said he had no interest in buyin their "product," I remarked to GA how sad I as that I didnt "dip my pen in Dutch ink" while I was in Amsterdam with KD, yet I too was leery of getting some western Nevada 'strange.' We terorized a few trailer parks, doing insane burnouts and leaving the trailer parkhood in dust.
GA and I get to the strip, our rental Camaro SS was filthy, but we gave no fuc*s. We pull up the crappy little off-strip motel, a motel that was likely used by the hookers around Las Vegas, toss our bags on the floor and crashed for about 4 hours. Our room was right be the Lima Bean shaped pool so we could hear the fellow ralliers horsing around by the pool. Greg gets up, looks out the window, tosses me a Natural Light and says; "the only way to detox is to retox muthaf*****!"
To which I replied :"that’s excellent, but first pack a bowl beforeI shower to get this wester Nevada hooker scent off me…"
We both get out to the pool and EVERYONE rom the starting line is there, they were all really really drunk. Since I was a little tired, and wanted to be on my game for gambling that night, I didn’t drink or smoke. The night rolled around and we rustled up some grub on the strip, then we went to MGM to gamble: "Im not putting more than $50 down for chips…"
"Cool, imma do $100, you broke bitch" GA said.
We decide to play some slots (yawn), some Roulette (yawn), then I said I wanted to play some BlackJack. We walked up to the black jack table, waited for the dealer to reshuffle, and jumped in. I felt really smart so I thought I could count cards, after a few hands I started to turn a $5 to $10 to $20 profit, leaving me with $50, the exact same as I started with I thought: "ok, I can quit now, or go for glory, and put 80% down…" Me being the dumb kid I was, I decided to put $40 down and risk it all.
"ohhhh the little piker thinks hes got game!?" The dealer said
"Ehhhh" I replied
The cards come out and I get a 9 and a King.
"I bet you want a hit…"
"Nah, the only hit im taking will be the hit of Cannabis I take after I win this hand"
"Ok kid"
The dealer got a 5, Queen. "I bet you want a hit…" I said in a snarky tone
He took a card, a 7.
I said: "Id like to close out, please"
"Awwww poor kid cant play!?"
"Id like to close out, please"
"Ok tough guy"
I take my chips, get them cashed, and wound up with $95. I turned to GA: "I see how this can get addictive, I turned a 90% ROI!"
"We both laughed, piled into the Camaro, and GA drove us back to LA. GA hung out with DS for an extra day in LA while I was at work - about a month went by before my portfolio manager GD told me I needed to get to Boston to meet the other half of the team, I had only spoken to AS & SG on the phone, trying to explain how to use my messed up spreadsheets. Upon the meeting I figured: "Im already in the North East, I will swing down to NYC to visit RL, RN & MS.
The first night we were itogether, we just went out, got drunk, went to MS' friends apartment, but she wasn’t home yet. So MS and I decided to sleep, on the loor, in front of her door in a fairly swanky Upper East Side apartment. Early that morning MS and I were both awoken by a securoty guard kicking our feet: "uhhhh whats goin on here?"
"oh, sorry we got locked out by our friend she didn’t come home last night, do you all have a lounge?"
"yep, to the right of the front desk"
"Awesome, thank you"
MS and I slept on couches (what a luxury until JP came home. We got cleaned up and I grabbed my bag and went to MS, RN, and RLs apartment. Except it was a 2-bedroom. RL has converted a narrow, but very tall closet into a bedroom/loft. RL and I had been friends since high school, so I felt ok asking him if I could toss my stuff in his room. It was Saturday night, so we all got cleaned up, grabbed a pizza ate in, and got hyped for Saturday night.
"Where should we go?" asked RN.
Me:"I really wanna go to Pacha near westside highway! I get a podcast every week by them, and they have awesome music!"
RN asks:"Ok, everybody cool with Pacha?"
MS:"I wanna hit a college bar, maybe we go there to pregame, then Pacha?"
Me: "yeah that sounds splendifferous"
We set out, at the college bar, I ended up taking 3 shots and I was done for, I cant remember a thing. I stumble up to the bar and ask or a Heineken. "Ohhh is that for me?" An unseen girl asked
"Sure, if we go home tonight."
"OK"
Not being able to believe my ears, I turned around and I see this really cuteAsian girl with her hand out.
"hmm youre pretty thirsty huh?"
"Like you wouldn’t believe" as she snatched the beer out of my hand
"Well maybe you can give me some private tutoring, so I do believe."
"Im a great teacher"
"Well, I kinda suck at school, anything you can do?"
"Well as far as sucking, I think we can work something out"
"well, Ill be sure to get you an extra juicy Apple"
"Sounds delicious"
We danced, occasionally kissing, and made our way back to RL, RN & MS' apartment. When we got there I realized I had no bed to sleep on, only a couch, but RL being the good friend he is said: "Y'all can sleep (wink) in my bed."
"The dungeon!? Yesssss. Thanks man."
So, this girl (didn’t and still don’t know her name) amble up the ladder, she was wearing a skirt and wanted to go first. "Ok I know where this is going…to the bed!"
"Aww cant we play teachestudent first?"
"Only if I get a taste of that Apple I brought you..."
The next morning was my flight out to LA at 4:56 PM, so I had time to grab brunch with the guys before I left. We ate on Chelsea Pier, I felt obliged to 'kiss and tell,' and extol them with my heroics. In retrospect, they probably didn’t want to hear it, I banged some random, probabky nasty girl on RLs bed. We finished lunch had some fun on Chelsea pier, and I flew back to LA. While back in Beverly Hills I was incredibly tire, but I took pride in recounting every detail to DV, knowing AT could hear. I stupidly thought: "if she hears how much fun im having, she might get jealous and want to hangout with me." I was such a devious little shit.
I finish telling DV just as GD walks in to hear the punchline; "…so I brought her back and got her on my friends bed!" GD walks to his station, with four screens (I used to think the ore screens you have the more of a boss you are, now I think the less you have to involve yourself with day-to-day, and intraday moves the more of a 'boss' you are) I can feel him staring at me smiling my ass of, he says "I WANT TO FU*KING HEAR!" So I launch into my tale (or should I say tail).
Later that week I called my father while biking to the gym. I called him because I made an error In the execution of a large fixed income trade, the price of the underlying security moved away from the price quoted, normally this would not matter since we had discretion over trading - meaning we would not need client approval. However, this was a trade for our largest client making a large fixed income purchase, so $.01 makes a big difference when the quantity purchased is in the millions. My father recounts this story to me as an almost emblematic admission of previous of apprehension towards him, and my subsequent of rectification.
As theNYC buzz began to wear off, I started going to bars around LA; SkyBar, and Viper Room one night my two buddies DS & DS, and I all agreed that we should go to Club Avalon, I was a huge electronic progressive house music aficionado so going to world famous club Avalon was *almost* as sweet as NYC with my bros. DS and I cohosted 'Techno Storytime' on the school radio, so we were super pumped to hear some much in the 110 - 130 BPM range.
Still feeling the nightlife buzz from NYC, I found myself able to easily to talk to girls. Doug and I were kinda wall flowers/club explorers, neither one of us has been to Avalon, but upon exploring it we both agreed, DS would love it too, we should start meeting there monthly. The night wore on, I found myself uninterested in paying $12.00 for a bottle if Heineken, so I started to hit on some women, DS and I had explored too much and I only had 30 minutes to seal the deal. So I got to work, quickly scored the number, but we got sidetracked talking about a subject I really, really enjoy; political analysis.
We talked political analysis I wish I could remember what she was saying, she was so on the ball, that awareness only increased my attraction to her. We talked for a bit, we went to the outside portion of the club, seeing her in the moonlight I thought; "shit, she is magnificent, screw AT if I land her. Her looks combined with her intellect make her a superwoman, exactly the type of woman I want carrying my seed. By this point 20 minutes had elapsed, and the club began emptying, "oh shit better seal th-"
"It was amazing talking to you, but I have to find my friends."
"Wait, maybe we…"
She was gone from my life, at least I had her number…
I moped back to DS, he asked me: "Howd it go man!?"
I started yelling that 'I couldn’t seal the f$%^ing deal!"
"Its cool man, this is a big city, im sure youll have other shots, lets catch a cab back to my crib, smoke a bowl watch a movie and forget about all this."
"Aight dude that sounds awesome."
So, we go out to the taxi area, DS and I just bullshitting, and he stop talking: "…so DS has this sick fader on his turn tab…. Wait, what was the name of the girl you were talking to?"
"Why? K(atie)A(ltman…)
"KATIE!!!!!!"
"D what the…."
"KATIE!!!!!!"
"Oh Shit that’s Katie!"
He yells -"KATIE!!!!!!"
She turns around as she is getting in to her cab, with her buddies. I sprint over to her cab wrench the cab door open, and ride with the back to their apartment in Laurel Canyon. From here, I don’t have a clear memory of what happened but I woke up in my bed the next morning. "Shit" I thought, did I walk back to Franklin from Laurel Canyon? Guess I don’t need to work out today! So I rolled back over and dozed for another 45minutes until I get a text from the girl who was sweating me at the gym, CS.
A little back story on CR; I was always checking her out, so was always pushing her massive chest out when I would walk by and she was on a machine. Then one day she walked up behind me while I was doing pushups, waited for me to finish me set… "ninety eight…ninety nine…one hundered, I don’t know I you were listening there I did 100 pushups, ha ha ha
"Is that rom a movie???"
"Anchorman!"
"Ohhhh, well lets see how you do with me riding yourback!"
"Wait what?"
CR straddled my back and plopped down. I pretended to not be able do any with her on my back. "Come on muscle man, make me ride you!"
"Um, im not sure I feel comfortable announcing to the gym that you want to fuck me"
"Who said that, that wishful thinking man…"
"How about we compare our wishes, what is a good night next week to take you to dinner?"
"Sunday night"
"Sunday!?!?"
"I am a nurse so I work weird hours, but next Sunday night, lets get take out, a bottle of wine and some…youre from India right?"
"Half"
"Ok, some Hindu Kush, sit on the beach in Santa Monica and share dinner."
"Whoa, yes ma'am!"
"Ma'am?"
"Southern thing, I tell you about on Sunday night."
"Can't wait" She said with a smile
I left the LA Fitness on Hollywood BLVD. next to the Chinese Theater in a dream state. Then I realized that Sunday night was 2 nights away! Shit I need to get wine and a ton of Hindu Kush! I secured the Hindu Kush (too much), but not the wine, I wanted to get Red, and White to give her the option. Since I has just moved into my new apartment, I didn’t have time to set everything up, so I didn’t have time to buy a cooler to chill the white wine; "I will have to buy it the night of."
I searched my room and couldn’t find any more bud, so I decided to Meet DS and DS for dinner, we wound up going to a bar too - oops! Needless to say I didn’t get to pick up the wine, or the Kush, id have to pick it up before the date, tomorrow. "Hey do you guys know I any dispensaries are open on Sunday??
"They arent, but our friend owns one, he'll sell to you."
"Awesome"
So, I contact DS and DS' buddy; I meet him and buy absolutely too much bud, and buy some gummies too, I swing back by my apartment on Franklin, drop off the dry bud" CR and I wont need that much, and get a call from DS, Ds and crew: "Yooo nuppal, were gonna go catch a movie, you down?"
"Yeah man lets do it!"
I quickly grab my backpack, remembering that I needed to pick up the wine, and knowing I needed to bring some bud. I hopped on my bike and roade over to East Hollywood to catch a flick with them. I pull up, get off the bike as theyre rolling up, I swing my backpack across, thinking im going to light up. I open the back pack… "Hey guys lets do this before…" Open the back pack a but more and reach in feeling for my bowl and the tupperware with the dry kush, and realizing that I hadnt unpacked the edibles that id bought. So, I skipped the dry bud and said: "hey guys I just bought these edibles, lets each grab some gummies and watch the movie…"
"Alright dude, but Edibles will hit when the movie is ending, but yeah man!"
So we take some gummies, and watch the movie. DS was right, the gummies did begin to take effect as the movie ended: "shit" I thought "Im gonna have to ride to Santa Monica while pretty high…no big deal, I hate riding high though." As Im riding down Sunset BLVD, heading west towards Santa Monica I happen to look up at the sky during a red light. The magnificence of a South-Western Southern California sunset is something everyone must enjoy, similar to the colors a Monet painting. I stared up at the sky for longer than the light was red, so people behind me became agitated. I quickly moved down Sunset blvd. at the famous (or infamous) intersection of Sunset Blvd. & Larrabee St. in West Hollywood.
Still mesmerized by the sunset, yet trying to focus, I see a clapped out For Expedition come from Larrabee, turning left onto Sunset the intended turn was in my path. I took a second to process "this is my path what the fuohhhh," going from euphoric joy to life saving maneuvers is not something they teach in MSF school, good thing I never went. After processing his intended trajectory I slammed on the brakes,
A part-time bartender at the Viper Room "didn’t see his red light due to sun" and was under assume every light is 'Green' for him. So he decided that even though there is traffic on Sunset, he would rather turn o make sure there was no traffic going in his intended direction on Sunset. I knew that grabbing too much front brake would send me headfirst into the pavement and his car, and into my coffin. So, I decided to overapply the rear brake, lay the bike down and hope for the best, I guess 'the best' of an inherently shitty situation did occur, I lived! However, while sliding through the Sunset & Larrabee intersection my back connected with the end of his passenger-side running board, my brand new Scorpion Exo-1000 hit the running board as well. Instantly knocked out. According to the report filed by the ambulance driver I was 'unresponsive' at the scene, but no external blood, save a bit of road rash were my jacket bunched up underneath my left arm, I suffered a 'severe' DAI brain injury (Diffuse Axonal Injury) and 26 brain bleeds.
Luckily, the ambulance ride was at most 8 minutes to Cedars-Siani Beverly Hills, this hospital was on my commute path to and from work, on Maple Dr. I always wondered what the building was, so much property in the heart of Beverly Hills however, this was NOT the method I intended to find out about this building. Must have been a funny scene in the office the next Monday. "Looks like Nick is late again" said AT
My dad gave me my first laugh post injury, we agree that laughter is the vanguard of healing mental and physical ailments.

There are a number of very good books on ‘Learning how to Learn.” Let me first say that unfortunately learning how to learn is not generally taught, nor is reading (beyond elementary school) and that we as humans have relatively poor feedback mechanisms to tell how well we are learning, i.e. you don’t know what you don’t know. (see Dunning-Kruger effect) We think we may have learned something well, but we are often mistaken.

So with that, my first recommendation is Barbara Oakley’s book Mind for Numbers is an excellent introduction to the subject. It is somewhat geared to STEM fields in college, but is quite useful in other disciplines and would be useful in high school for all academic subjects. You should also look at Barbara Oakley’s course on Coursera, which is also excellent.

Are you trying to train your brain to retain knowledge or to keep focus/ignore distractions? or are you trying to identify books that will expand your way of thinking and help you be more creative of empathetic? I think in general quality science fiction set in the future helps with creativity. I mean, the things we invent today are based on what we imagine tomorrow will be like.

As far as empathy goes, try military history that tells the story of soldiers from the soldiers point of view. War is extremely personal when you are on the ground and the range of emotions soldiers span the expanse from elation to soul crushing agony. It is amazing humanizing to understand what people are capable of coping with in extreme circumstances. Also, I recommend contemporary political opinion pieces from contrarian points of view. You don't have to agree with the author, but getting to grips with how they arrive at their opinions can be shockingly enlightening. Just keep in mind that people are generally the same, ultimately we share similar motives, desires, and hierarchical needs, our differences come in how we plan to reach our goals.

2020.05.01 04:56 Jackaby2404 Switch Testing Date or Hope for the Best?

I have a test date for AUD scheduled on May 29 in Daytona Beach, FL, which just so happens to be one of the few testing centers in Florida not listed on the opening list provided. I haven't received any cancellation email as of yet, but did receive that glitchy confirmation email that probably means nothing. I know they're possibly opening new ones every two weeks, but it's not a guarantee they'll open this one. I can't call them, and I sent an email into a void that will probably not send a reply.
Should I move my testing date to somewhere out of state or stick it out and hope for the best? I'm just worried about getting a cancellation email the week before and not being able to find anything, much less something out of state.
I appreciate any advice!

2020.04.28 05:54 baronesslucy [RF] Don't worry about him

Back in 1982 a young man from a neighborhood community disappeared. None really cared because he had a reputation of getting into trouble, harassing and assaulting people. He also was known to assault police officers when arrested. So let's say when he disappeared not too many people in the area really cared. No one in his family even filed a missing persons report which was odd.
I wanted to go to college but my family didn't have the money. I got money to go to college in exchange for helping out someone who really wasn't college material but wanted to have the experience. Anelia Ivanov was the name of my room mate. Very nice, quiet, shy type of woman. I found out that most of the people in the dorm that I live in were from a neighboring country that had cut ties with Bulgaria back in the 1960's.. The name of the country was Varna which was a province of Bulgaria. The majority of people who lived there were Bulgarian and the main religion was Eastern Orthodox.
My father Andrey Petrov was from Varna, he came over in 1950, joined the US military, went to Korea for 3 years became a citizen. by 1954 he had gotten an honorable discharge, met my mom in Chicago. They married in 1955 and had 2 children. My sister was born in 1956 and I was born in 1962. In 1967 my father went out one day and never returned.
My mother who was a Swedish Lutheran converted to the Eastern Orthodox faith after marrying our father. The church we attended from time to time was the Varna Eastern Orthodox Church. Nearly all of the people who were members of the church were Bulgarian.
My sister looked like my blonde blued eye Swedish Lutheran mother and I looked like my dark haired brown eyed Bulgarian father. Part Swedish and part Bulgarian. My mother Christina named my sister Maud and I was named Svetlana. I was named after a much older sister of my father whom I've never met. She had died during World War II.
My mom made sure we had exposure to festival and events in both communities. We moved to Florida in 1969. As I said earlier we sometimes went to the Lutheran Church and the Eastern Orthodox Church. My sister and I were baptized Eastern Orthodox.
August 1980 Orlando area Varna Eastern Orthodox College
When I moved into the dorm, I met Prince Antoni and his younger brother Prince Anzhelo. Both were very good-looking men. Their father King Andrian was the ruler of Varna.
They knew that my father was from Varna. When I seemed surprised they told me because I was rooming with their sister, they did research on me. They told me they knew more about my family than I did and laughed about it like it was a joke. I didn't doubt this.
Prince Anzhelo was a freshman just like I was his. His older brother Prince Antoni would be graduating from college in May.
I thought it was odd that Anelia wasn't a princess but I soon found out why. She was their half-sister and her mother was their father's mistress. She and her mother actually lived in Daytona Beach, which was about 30 miles away. Her mother Louann Hawkel roots went deep in the South.
I was somewhat surprised that the brothers tolerated her as usually in a case like this, they might be angry about it. I couldn't imagine most royals attending a college that their half-sister who was the result of an extra-martial affair attended. This royal family seemed to march to the beat of a different drum.
It wasn't long before Prince Anzhelo and I started dating. Anelia had a boyfriend, a nerdy type guy. Her brother liked him. Daniel, the boyfriend was sort of scared of them. Of course they made it clear to him that they would have to deal with them if he hurt her or made her cry. Daniel was always helping Prince Anzhelo out as he liked to party more than he liked to study.
His older brother was so serious about everything. Of course he was heir to the throne, so he had to be. I must say that he was impressed with me because I could speak Bulgarian, well the Varna Bulgarian which Bulgarian didn't consider to be the proper Bulgarian language. Basically it was the same, but with different slang, different meanings, kind of like the Queen's English and American English. I had learned how to speak Bulgarian at some classes at the church in Orlando. My mom insisted that Maud and I attend these classes. Maud could speak enough to get by.
In May of 1982 Anelia was taking some pictures of the Varna Eastern Orthodox church when some guy parked in front of the church was involved in some type of criminal activity. He saw Anelia and started yelling at her. She got scared and ran. Got back to the dorm but forgot to lock the door. This guy got in the courtyard and started screaming. I called the police and they came and arrested the guy.
Anelia was sobbing. I remember the knock on the door. I opened the door and Prince Antoni. He was furious. A female officer was in the room talking with us. About ten minutes had passed.
"What happened?"
"I was in front of the Varna church taking pictures and I saw some guy trying to sell marijuana and he thought I was taking pictures of him. He started yelling that he was going to kill me. I didn't look where i was going and almost got him by a car. I managed to get away but forgot to lock the door. he got into the courtyard....
"Where is this piece of garbage? Is he still here?"
"He's been taken to the Orange County Jail, Prince Antoni."
This seemed to calm the Prince down. Anzhelo told me his older brother sometimes had a short fuse and had a bad temper. I could see this. Prince Anzhelo rarely got mad about anything.
This man bonded out of jail but came back to the apartment complex. Made good on his promise. This was a big mistake as Prince Antoni had his security people ready. He had done research on the guy. Someone at the jail had tipped him off when the guy would be getting out. Prior to the guy coming, they were in the courtyard talking in Bulgarian about what they were going to do. I pretended to be napping as before they started talking, Anzhelo came into my room and I pretended to be asleep. I heard him say that I was asleep. Anelia was in a fitness class.
They talked for over an hour. I peered out the window. I saw Prince Antoni give his brother some money and told him to take me out for the evening. He told him to take me out to dinner immediately. It was a little early about 5:00 pm. Prince Antoni waved as we left. Also coming with us was Anelia and Daniel.
We all went out to dinner, a movie and then I went back to Prince Anzhelo's place which was nice. The Prince told me that the guy had bonded out of jail and had threatened to harm Anelia.
"She doesn't have to worry about him. He will never bother anyone again."
I nodded. This made me uneasy as I knew they wouldn't be telling him nicely to leave Anelia alone. They wouldn't be paying him off or telling him to go away. They were going to settle the score with him. Most likely he would never been seen again.
Prince Antoni had joked about his father making people disappear. It really wasn't funny but in order to be in his favor, you had to laugh like it was a joke. I knew it was no joke. He was dead serious and told Anelia so. She thought it was a joke. She couldn't imagine him doing something terrible to someone but I could.
I really didn't want to know what they did to this guy. Prince Anzhelo was never involved with this although I'm sure he knew what happened. I played dumb and acted indifferent but it bothered me a little.
"Dont' worry about this guy, Svetlana. He isn't going to hurt anyone again. Do you really think police are going to look for a guy who has assaulted them, threatened them or who is a thorn in their side? "
"Probably not." I said.
The police never came around and questioned no one. I was later told that the case had been closed. This is the type of power the King had. Very powerful.
I found out that my father was alive and well living in Varna. There had been an uprising in 1967 and he had come back to Varna and had was loyal to the King who took power after taking over the Province. He broke away from Bulgaria and had access to nuclear weapons which caused the Russian to back off. Varna was recognized as a country in 1970.
My mother couldn't understand when my dad left why the US military didn't want to give her military benefits. They wouldn't tell her and she wondered if Dad had left to go fight in Varna. The uprising of 1967 was a major concern for NATO. Finally after nearly a year my mother got the benefits.
It was not surprising when Prince Antoni told me this shortly before he graduated. He knew everything and I mean everything about me, my family and everything else it seemed.
The Bulgarian royal family didn't recognize them as being royals. Other royals didn't either. This family was about 15 times removed but there were distantly related to the Eastern European Royal households. The US sort of recognized them but were leary of Varna.
I went to Varna in 1984 during spring break and I saw my father. Maud came with me. My mother chose not to but she knew about it. He was quite ill from smoking too much over the years. My mother was angry with him. We just wanted answers and he answered our questions. I must say that both Maud and I were surprised when he showed us pictures. Some from the church had filed him in with what we were doing all those years.
I guess the real shocker was when he told us that the King made sure my mother got those benefits. My father was one of his security people and had saved his life on more than one occasion. I hate to say it but the King was a feared dictator. Whenever you have a dictator he's usually extreme left or right wing but this guy seemed to take ideology of each. Mixing of both. A example of this would be he believed that women should be traditional but also educated at the same time. His economics were similar to those in the US that were conservative but he believed that government could do this best. Allowed religion to practice but only on his terms or what he believed.
The Russians and Bulgarians never admitted that they were afraid of him but they were a little. The US was leary of him (He wasn't a communism nor was he Hitler) but you didn't want to tick him off.
Anyway, enough of that. My father died a couple of hours before we were to leave. We left a couple of days later. My father was given a state type funeral. We knew that people were watching us. The King talked about how wonderful he was. Loyal servant to the state of Varna.
Shortly after graduation Prince Anzehelo and I went our separate paths. He had hinted this to me throughout our relationship. I never developed deep feelings towards him but was careful not to reveal this. I told him I wouldn't be his mistress and he understood. He would find someone.
He married a woman who his father had picked out for him. A woman who was educated and suitable for bearing children. A virgin of course. The virgin part was more or less understood not actually written in stone.
I was given a parting gift which was a new home in Orlando. Life went on. The man was never spoke of again.

Car Changes

  • If you change car within class, you may not then swap classes or change car again.

LIVERY RULES

  • Re-badging is permitted on the Lola and Oreca, within reason. Ask us if you aren't sure.
  • Absolutely no explicit content, tobacco, or "offensive" liveries. Feel free to ask us.
  • Otherwise, if it's within the XBOX / Forza TOS, and you have the right number on the car, go for it!

  • Qualifying - 2 points for pole per class, for first race of round only.
  • 2019 IMSA points scale.

COMMUNICATION

  • Please check that you have a working Discord voice client prior to qualifying.
  • Qualifying is to be a silent session. Do not make any noise until the last driver is finished. If you want to talk, hop in the other discord voice channel (aka not "Race 3").
  • Please don't interrupt me when I am explaining stuff pre-race or during the race. No interruptions -> I stop talking way quicker!
