2023.03.23 07:43 Flatnoobbot Rihanna's Super Bowl Halftime Show Theory

Rihanna's Super Bowl Halftime Show Theory
Many people are still wondering about the hidden meaning of Rihanna's Super Bowl (or Superb Owl, like some would say) Halftime Show. Some people say that it symbolize the birth of The Antichrist because of Rihanna being pregnant and the dancers dressed in white acted as the "sperms". That theory is quite plausible, but I want to offer another theory (or add more details) on it.
Rihanna's Super Bowl show/performance was about a flag of a country, especially a flag with Red and white colors (Rihanna wore red and the dancers wore white). The winner of the that Super Bowl is Kansas City chiefs, a team with prominent red and white colors on their logo.
The stages and floating platforms are rectangular in shape, which is the shape of a flag. Red and white colors scheme can also be seen on them; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HjBo--1n8lI
The Colour and the Shape of a flag
So what country's flag do they want to show? These are the candidates; Poland, Indonesia, Japan, Monaco, Canada, England, Turkiye, Denmark, and so on. Poland is a possibility seeing the current rising tension between Russia and NATO, and Turkiye could also be considered because of the massive earthquakes. But here is my speculation, they were most likely pointing at the flag of Indonesia, based on this "iconic" shot at the start of the performance:
RED (Above) and WHITE (Below). Rihanna's \"rectangular\" platform was also raised with the motion that is akin to a \"raising the flag\" motion.
The rectangular Flag of Indonesia. Monaco also has a red and white flag, but their flag is square-shaped, not rectangle.

What is the significance of Indonesia you might ask? Well, in short, two or three of the main islands in the Archipelago of Indonesia could possibly be the true location of Sheba and Ophir that is mentioned in The Bible. Look at my posts below if you want to know more about the details:
- ISLAND OF JAVA - SHEBA: https://www.reddit.com/Bibleconspiracy/comments/xmwvnf/queen_of_sheba_theory/
- ISLAND OF SUMATRA - OPHIR: https://www.reddit.com/Bibleconspiracy/comments/10pgt77/ophirex_ophir_moderna_cofounder_using_mrna/
Between those two island, lies the remnant of the Krakatoa Volcano, Anak Krakatoa, and it is located at the coordinates of 6°06′06″S (listed at 6°06′07″S, but you could check it by yourself in Google Earth). Both Sheba and Ophir are mentioned in 1 Kings 10, and see the "666" golds of Solomon mentioned in 1 Kings 10:14.
1 Kings 10:14 King James Bible
14 Now the weight of gold that came to Solomon in one year was six hundred threescore and six talents of gold,
Here are some more interesting facts about Indonesia:
Remember that Trump officials said that Mauritania, Indonesia were next to normalize with Israel in Abraham Accords (Indonesia is the country with the largest Muslim population in the World). In a December 2020 interview, Adam Boehler, a top Trump administration official and CEO of the US International Development Finance Cooperation, said Indonesia could potentially receive upwards of $2 billion in additional development assistance if Jakarta “formalized” ties with Israel.
Obama was also living in Jakarta, Java Island from year 1967 to 1971. There is also this strange archived us-israel org website page, a defunct Israel owned site that showed the image of the map of indonesia with many red markers on Java, Sumatra, and North Sulawesi.
A Famous Co-Freemasonsy member, C.W. Leadbeater, wrote the "Occult History of Java" book. Rabbi Tovia Singer, the possible disciple of Lubavitcher Rebbe who claimed in 1991 that the Messiah was ready to come, has a synagogue in Jakarta, Java (Borobudur, the favorite "Temple" of C.W. Leadbeater, was inscribed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 1991).
Furthermore, see this article: https://www.tabletmag.com/sections/community/articles/indonesia-jews-come-out
And this: A Medieval Russian Description of ‘Java’. That Russian source was particularly interesting, because it contains this line: " And the Jews call Java their own, but that is a lie (8). The people of Java are not Jews, Muslims, or Christians; they have a different religion, the Hindu faith. They do not eat or drink with Hebrews or Muslims, nor do they eat meat. ..."
Also this The Economist cover: https://www.economist.com/weeklyedition/2022-12-24

"The Amish in indonesia" is talking about the Kanekes People that live in the Java Island (Sheba). Those people have a ceremony called "Seba", which involves delivering crops such as rice and fruit to the Governor of Banten (and formerly to the Governor of West Java) through the regent of Lebak.

Massive "Trails" of Leviathan South of Java Island on August 2, 2019
August 2, 2019:
Mysterious glow of a ‘milky sea’ caught on camera for first time (from The Guardian)
PNAS (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences) website for more details: https://www.pnas.org/doi/10.1073/pnas.2207612119
A quote from that website:
When waking up at 2200 the sea was white. There is no moon, the sea is apparently full of ? plankton ? but the bow wave is black! It gives the impression of sailing on snow!
Compare it with Leviathan in Job 41:
Job 41:32 King James Bible
32 He maketh a path to shine after him; one would think the deep to be hoary.
Some news reported that Covid might have started to spread in September 2019 (Jeffrey epstein also supposedly commited "suicide" on August 10, 2019) in the US: https://oversight.house.gov/release/covid-origins-hearing-wrap-up-facts-science-evidence-point-to-a-wuhan-lab-leak%EF%BF%BC/, Dr. Redfield: “Absolutely we cannot do that. It’s now declassified now, but in September 2019, three things happened in that lab. "
The suspicious Event 201 pandemic excercise was in October 2019. If my queen of Sheba theory is correct, it is then possible that the elites saw that "Leviathan's trails" pointing at Java Island as a sign to start their endgame covid program

Candida Auris Fungus
Obama was living in Jakarta. And in the newly released episodes of The Last of Us Series, Jakarta is chosen as the the place of origin for the cordyceps zombie fungus in 2003. Notice that one of the character of the series mentioned above is a professor from University of Indonesia, and Obama had a speech in university of indonesia in 2010; President Obama in Jakarta: "Indonesia’s Example To the World"
Here are some interesting tidbits from that speech:
Bhinneka Tunggal Ika -- unity in diversity. (Applause.) This is the foundation of Indonesia’s example to the world, and this is why Indonesia will play such an important part in the 21st century.
and in his closing, he said this:
That spark of the divine lives within each of us.
Reminds me of the divine spark in Gnostic ideology.
Lo and behold, The CDC released this in March 20, 2023:
"Increasing Threat of Spread of Antimicrobial-resistant Fungus in Healthcare Facilities"

mRNA Vaccines for Cattles
World-First mRNA Vaccine for Foot and Mouth Disease Underway (in Australia).
Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional New South Wales (NSW) Paul Toole said the milestone would protect Australia’s $28.7 billion (US$18.5 billion) livestock industry.“I have now written to vaccine manufacturers to take up my challenge to develop both vaccines ready for use and manufacture in NSW by Aug. 1 next year,” Toole said in a statement.
There was an outbreak of FMD in Indonesia (the neighbor of Australia) in 2022, and it basically fast-tracked the mRNA vaccine for cattles. See this EU law, 91/666/EEC regarding the FMD vaccine in 1991:
91/666/EEC: Council Decision of 11 December 1991 establishing Community reserves of foot-and-mouth disease vaccines.

There could be a connection between Indonesia and the coming Antichrist, seeing how Israel has a massive interest in Java/Indonesia, and the Rihanna's Super Bowl halftime show could be pointing to it.

2023.03.23 06:27 Mikesavageusa Mike Savage New Canaan Leading Equipment's American Muscle mass Cars Episode Was Revealing

Way back when Top Gear was still worth enjoying, Jeremy Clarkson, James May, and also Richard Hammond started a terrific trip across the western United States. You may bear in mind the episode where the children drove various American muscle mass vehicles (in fact, just one was really a muscle mass auto, however don't anticipate the Brits to recognize that). There's plenty of cringe in the episode, demonstrating how Europeans have a tendency to lean toward elitism, although a lot of them are ordinary necessarily.
Enjoy the most up to date Motorious Podcast here.
James May really did not like his Cadillac CTS-V due to the fact that the supercharged V8 was just "not needed." Nevertheless, he desired a Caddie which floats like a sofa on wheels and also has just adequate power to get it up to highway speeds in a suitable amount of time, not the tire-roasting powertrain he obtained..
Mike Savage New Canaan
Jeremy Clarkson seemed to enjoy the Chevy Corvette ZR1 he was driving. Instead of whining, He spent his time in the sports car claiming he definitely comprehends and appreciates the allure of American muscle. That's revitalizing to learn through Europeans, who sadly so commonly feel the requirement to bash American performance cars and trucks as if we didn't conserve them from talking German and also melting all their books.
Clarkson likens American muscle autos to killer whales: striking to check out, really fast, yet obviously he would not want to possess one. Why? Well, the guy has a great deal of warm handles practically everything, like calling the Porsche 911 an overhyped Volkswagen Beetle. That as well as he says owning an American muscle auto is "as well brash, too awful." Social pressure is actual.
Mike Savage New Canaan
After that you have Richard Hammond, the individual Clarkson calls a "secret American." If by that he suggests someone that can value an excellent car made in one more part of the world, after that he would certainly be right. While behind the wheel of a Dodge Opposition SRT8, Hammond proclaimed dreamily, "I enjoy muscle autos." He then goes on to claim everything he loves regarding them, including the truth they're constructed for blasting down the quarter mile, they rattle people, as well as most significantly that they're realistic devices doing not have any pretense. The man truly does obtain the appeal of muscle mass autos, something that leaves his peers.
Certain, we like ogling the attractive craftsmanship of Ferraris or the technological marvels of Porsches, but we likewise like achievable efficiency. American brands provide that, although as we've mentioned just recently, they're beginning to pattern in the direction of unattainable elitism too which's really unfortunate.

2023.03.23 06:07 Cheeseskin83 Any experience with these no-name eBay bodies?

Looking on eBay I found a whole lot of never-seen-by-me-before 190mm touring car bodies. Some look like they could be pretty nice, others look just OK. Has anyone here seen or tried these bodies? There are some really cool unique models I’ve never seen in RC form before and are awfully tempting. Prices seem a little high on some, but for those looking for a specific vehicle, it may be worth it. Here are a few links for some:

2023.03.23 05:05 Determination7 An Outcast In Another World (Subtitle: Is 'Insanity' A Racial Trait?) [Fantasy, LitRPG] - Chapter 182 (Book 5 Chapter 8)

One Day Later
The Dwarves looked about as happy to see Rob as he was to see them. "My head is spinning," Nerasi grumbled, casting a baleful glare at him. "Fiend teleportation magic is-"
"Yeah, yeah, we get it." Rob spread his arms wide and perked his lips up into a facsimile of a smile. "Welcome to base camp. We'll be dismantling it for travel soon, so don't get too attached."
Nerasi and the Dwarves looked past him, examining the full breadth of the allied coalition. It was an impressive sight, comprising of 200 Combat Class users and 500 Utility Class users from five different races. Seven races, if you counted Rob and Meyneth for diversity's sake. While the number of soldiers was comparable to a standard army battalion, what they lacked in quantity, they made up for in quality. Their Levels were much higher than average, and that was without factoring in the Leaders and Riardin's Rangers.
"I almost want Ragnavi to attack us," Nerasi said, once she'd finished her appraisal. "We might actually stand a chance of ending her right here and now."
"Might?" Rob parroted. "Not 'definitely'? She can't be that strong."
"Correct, but she has an army to draw from. A fight would depend on how many troops she brings. If her retinue and the coalition have an equal number of Combat Class users, then our odds are favorable. If her retinue outstrips ours by 50-100 soldiers, then it would come down to a coin flip. Any more than that..."
Nerasi shook her head. "No matter. With luck, that situation shall never come to pass." She rubbed her temples with a poorly-suppressed irritation. "Where are the Leaders? The sooner I speak with them, the sooner I'll be able to rest. Personally, I find it utterly ridiculous that I've been saddled with the role of Dwarven representative simply because my allies are too craven to volunteer themselves."
She raised her voice for the last part, causing the Dwarves within earshot to wince. Rob was tempted to commiserate with her – being pushed into a leadership role wasn't super fun – but he doubted that she'd appreciate the gesture. The invasion of Dhalerune City was still a raw wound. None of the Dwarves were going to like Riardin's Rangers very much, and that went double for Nerasi. She'd been extremely unhappy over being strongarmed into covering up Keira's assassination attempt on the researchers.
It was why Rob was the only one who'd shown up to greet the Dwarves. As a sorta-Leader, he needed to make an appearance, but the full Party would just remind the Dwarven camp of what happened in Dhalerune. No point in ratcheting tensions first thing in the day. It was best if Riardin's Rangers steered clear for now, Keira especially.
Several minutes later, all the territory representatives had gathered in one place. Rob, Elder Alessia, a Grand Overseer, Seneschal Sylpeiros, King Cyraeneus, the Gellin Empress, and Nerasi. Seeing everyone together in-person – as opposed to hearing their voices over Message Crystals – was a bit of an odd feeling. Like meeting up with online friends for the first time. Not that I'd call most of us friends.
As if proving his thoughts, Nerasi immediately spoke up. "I'm surprised you're all still standing." She smirked. "Would've expected some of you to come to blows before my people arrived."
"Is that why you so graciously offered to arrive last?" Seneschal Sylpeiros remarked, in a droll tone.
King Cyraeneus cleared his throat. "Let's not bicker so hastily. Remember that everyone here is of one mind and purpose. Besides, any problems that arose were resolved without issue."
"So there were problems." Nerasi barked out a laugh. "Was it the Human? Or Seneschal Sylpeiros?"
Rob scratched the back of his head. "...Yes."
"Marvelous. This alliance is shaping up to be as memorable as I'd anticipated."
Message Sent From Party Member: Alessia Alessia: That one has a troublesome personality. Alessia: Most people would falter in her position. Her Level is by far the lowest here. Alessia: Despite that, she speaks her mind, unwilling to cede an inch of authority. Alessia: It is an illusion that would collapse if pressed, but she doesn't allow any opportunity for that to happen. Alessia: And I can't even discern if she's doing it on purpose. Alessia: If we aren't careful, she could prove to be a thorn in our side. Rob: Yeah. She kinda reminds me of you. Alessia: I will choose to interpret that as a compliment.
"If you're quite done provoking your allies," Sylpeiros stated, "then we have business to attend to. First, the Gellin Empress would like to formally introduce herself."
He gestured to the floating, purple, five-foot-wide jellyfish beside him. The Gellin Empress raised a single tentacle and wiggled it in something approximating a wave. She sent out a pulse of emotional intent that washed over Rob's mind, giving him the impression of warm greetings, like the sound of a doorbell on a cloudless summer day.
Unable to stop himself, Rob took an unconscious step back, positioning himself away from her. The last time he'd dealt with Mind magic, it was when he'd been imprisoned by the Dreamthieves of an aberrant Dungeon. That experience had...kinda poisoned the well.
Noticing his reaction, Sylpeiros continued. "The Gellin Empress has promised not to read our thoughts without permission. I believe she is telling the truth." He paused. "I also believe that she will unintentionally slip up now and again. Keep that in mind."
The Empress sent out another pulse of emotion, this time of mild indignation. Like she'd been accused of something she would like to deny, but couldn't, at least in good conscience.
Better than I expected, worse than I'd hoped for, Rob mused. Riardin's Rangers would need to be exceptionally careful when around the Gellin. His Party's secrets weren't for the faint of heart. Maybe if I flood my mind with earworm pop music, she'll put in extra effort not to go snooping.
As Rob picked out the catchiest, most obnoxious song in his mental playlist, Cyraeneus spoke next. "Representative Nerasi, will the Dwarves be ready to travel soon?"
Nerasi nodded. "As soon as this camp is packed up." Her eyes glinted. "Before that, though, how about a demonstration?"
Of what? Rob's question was answered when Nerasi called over some of her Dwarves, then asked for pieces of wood and metal to be set up in a line. He recognized the makeshift firing range long before the Dwarves pulled out their rifles and took aim. Nerasi gave the Leaders a few seconds to soak in the sight, and with a harsh command, ordered her soldiers to fire.
Cyraeneus and the Gellin Empress jerked back in shock. They'd been informed of the 1940s-era rifles – which Elatrans called Thunder Rods – but listening to dispassionate intel reports was different from hearing thunderous cracks of repeated gunfire. In contrast, Rob, Sylpeiros, and Alessia remained motionless as they watched the demonstration in grim remembrance. Their last interaction with Thunder Rods was the invasion of Dhalerune City, and that hadn't been a good time for anyone involved.
Once the dust cleared, the Thunder Rod wielders lowered their rifles and stepped back. The wooden planks they'd used as targets were gone, demolished into chunks of broken splinters. The metal sheets, less so, but their rifles had still left deep dents in the metal's surface.
"In addition to our Combat Class users," Nerasi began, with the confident poise of a showman, "we have brought along forty Thunder Rod wielders to supplement the coalition's ranks. I'm sure that you will find them to be an invaluable asset on the field of battle."
King Cyraeneus' body went rigid as he stared directly at the riflemen. A fierce internal calculus brewed within him, his eyes shining with unasked questions like: how fast are those attacks? Can they be dodged? Will they kill low-Level Combat Class users? Medium-Level? Even high-Level, if they were hit in a vital area? How does this change the flow of a large-scale battle? How can we work these weapons into our strategies? And how can we defend against them when they are inevitably turned on us?
It was the same turmoil Rob had witnessed all Elatrans go through upon learning the extent of what rifles were capable of. The Gellin Empress was probably going through it too, but she was a jellyfish, so he had no idea how to read her nonexistent expressions.
Even just based on King Cyraeneus' reaction, though, the demonstration was a clear win for the Dwarven camp. For all that Nerasi complained about being thrust into an unwanted leadership role, her smug expression indicated that some part of her enjoyed pulling one over the competition.
Which was why Rob couldn't help but take her down a peg. "So where's the radios?" he asked.
She blinked. "The...ah, yes. We've also brought radios to facilitate communication within the allied coalition. If it is necessary for our groups to split apart, radios will make it far easier to stay abreast of-"
"How many did you bring?"
Nerasi flinched. "Five."
Rob grinned. He'd been counting on them to be stingy. "Five radios for seven hundred people. If we need to split into smaller groups, we won't have enough to go around. And that's assuming they don't break or get lost."
"I am aware," Nerasi muttered. "Radios are a new technology. There weren't many available." She opened, then closed her mouth, struggling with how much to say. If Rob had to guess, she'd attempted to requisition more radios than just five – only to be denied by political bullshit in Dhalerune City. But if Nerasi admitted that, she'd be reminding the Leaders, that unlike them, she wasn't a Leader who could unilaterally command her people to do whatever she wanted.
Taking mercy, Rob clapped his hands. "Good talk, everybody. I think we can iron out any other details on the way." He smiled broadly. "Let's get this road trip started."
Four days passed without incident. It was similar to back when Rob had been traveling north with the Deserters; lots of walking, interspersed with random monster attacks that were easily repelled. The coalition factions found it awkward to travel together at first, but tensions decreased a little every day that there wasn't a repeat of the assassin fiasco.
Which didn't mean they lost their vigilance. All it would take was one Dragonkin scout spotting them and reporting back to Ragnavi for the coalition to be in a world of shit. While it was unlikely that they'd encounter Dragonkin until partway through Harpy territory, the chance was there, and it kept everyone's eyes glued to the horizon.
They maintained a steady pace, opting for a balance between speed and caution. The absolute safest choice would've been to travel to the eastern edge of Elatra, directly away from Dragonkin territory, and then travel south to enter Harpy territory from that angle. By then Ragnavi would've barbecued half of Harpy territory, though, so the coalition didn't have that luxury. Instead, they decided to head southeast to Arieda City, a Harpy settlement located near the border.
Hopefully, King Elnaril would respond to a Message Crystal call from one of his own cities.
Rob and Riardin's Ranger chose to spend their travel time by ingratiating themselves with the rest of the coalition. As best as they could, at any rate. The other factions were understandably wary when Level 60-plus Combat Class users sauntered up to ask how their day was going. Rob wasn't sure how much actual progress was made by his Party's efforts, but it was better than letting everyone stew in an awkward mire for the whole trip.
At night, the coalition would make camp and rest their tired legs. Watching light dim from the sky always set Rob's nerves on fire; it was like a countdown timer until his next checkup with the Soul Surgeon. Each night, he expected the Surgeon to give him bad news, and each night, his expectations were betrayed.
"You sure Leveling High's containment hasn't budged?" Rob asked, with undisguised suspicion. "I leveled up recently. You told me before that gaining Levels would weaken the seal."
The Soul Surgeon raised an eyebrow. "I also said that Leveling High's containment could last up to six months. Furthermore, expecting perfect accuracy regarding a new, unknown Status Effect would be ill-advised. Perhaps the seal is similar to an ability buff such as Step of the Wind, and will arbitrarily expire once a certain timer is reached. Perhaps it will remain until you hit a specific Level. Perhaps it will endure as long as your willpower holds. We simply do not know."
"Fair points," Rob conceded. It would make more sense for him to talk to Vul'to instead. As the one who placed the seal, he should be able to shed some light on the situation.
"I don't know," Vul'to said, after Rob approached him. "Any theory I could give you would be baseless conjecture. The nature of my Class is an enigma that I have yet to decipher."
Rob resisted the urge to run his hand down his face. "Was worth a shot. Thanks anyway, though."
"I'm sorry that I can't be of more help."
"Dude, you have nothing to apologize for. Without your containment seal, I would've been fucked six ways to Sunday."
Vul'to's frown quickly flipped upside-down. "Your gratitude is very much appreciated." He paused, hesitating. "If I may ask – why the interest in this topic? It seems to go beyond worrying about when Leveling High's containment will expire."
"I just feel like I'm missing something," Rob said. "Not to look a gift horse in the mouth, but why does that Skill even exist? Your first Soul Guardian Skill blocked Corruption. The second sealed away Leveling High. I can't Sense any Corruption within Leveling High, that can't be the common element. Is it really just that Soul Guardian has a vague 'guarding your soul' motif, or is there something else to it?"
Vul'to slowly nodded. "I understand your consternation. You'll be informed the instant I learn anything new." He smiled. "Until then, I'll give my thanks for every day that Leveling High remains an impotent prisoner, as it deserves."
Rob gave him an enthusiastic high-five. "Same here, man. Same here."
The coalition reached Harpy territory on the eve of their fourth day of travel. It was easy to tell, as the white grass of Dwarven territory abruptly changed to the yellow grass of Harpy territory. Aside from its color, Harpyland's grass also appeared more lush and healthy, as if it'd drank from a heavier rainfall than the Dwarfland grass situated mere inches away.
Rob shook his head at the affront to all that was logical, letting out an exaggerated sigh. "I'll never get used to that."
"Earth is stranger," Orn'tol remarked. "Without grass to mark borders, how can people tell where their territories begin and end?"
"We set the lines ourselves, and then...sometimes respect them." Rob peered closer at the color-coded foliage, several ideas springing to mind. "You can grow plants from one territory inside a different territory, right?"
Meyneth nodded. "That is how Humans managed to eke out a living in their wasteland of a territory. You recall the underground farms that were infected by the Blight? Those were constructed from imported crops and soil."
"Then wouldn't it be possible for one territory to expand its borders by uprooting a second territory's native grass and replacing it?"
His Party members gaped at him in shock. "You suggest..." Zamira paused, then swallowed, as if her throat had gone dry. "You're suggesting altering a territory's borders?"
"Is that so bizarre?" Rob was becoming aware he'd stepped on a cultural landmine, but his curiosity egged him on. "On Earth, when one side wins a war, you usually take some land from the enemy nation. It's one of the main ways that territories back home get stronger."
His Party members were looking queasier the longer he spoke. "How about this," Rob continued, recognizing that it was time to pivot. "Human territory was an empty wasteland long before the Humans arrived. Why didn't anyone else try terraforming it? Make it less of a wasteland, I mean. Would've resulted in more livable land."
"You can't alter territorial borders," Keira stated, with a hint of disgust. "That would be obscene."
"If you say so," Rob shrugged, letting the topic drop. He wasn't going to get anywhere with this. Even his biggest friends weren't willing to entertain the idea whatsoever.
If the gods created this version of Elatra, Rob began, thinking further, then they might've instilled this mindset within the world's inhabitants. Would keep any one society from being wiped out entirely – until The Scouring screwed everything up, at least.
He kept staring at the divided grass, searching for inspiration. I also know that there are multiple gods, and each territory believes in its own patron deity, so there's probably one god assigned per nation. Maybe they created Elatra this way so each god would always have a place at the table.
Although he couldn't be 100% sure of that. Rob had met three gods in-person during his second trip to the divine planes: Kismet, Malid, and Vivacity. None of those names matched the ones that Elatrans gave for their gods. So far, he'd heard of Lothren for the Elves, Titan for the Dwarves, Tylrud for the Dragonkin, Odium for the Merfolk, and Argath for the Fiends. Either there were way more gods running around than Rob knew of, or the Elatrans were flat-out getting all their deities' names wrong.
"Diplomacy," Faelynn suddenly asked. "What do you think of our allies? Are we safe from any further assassination attempts?"
Rob was initially confused at the change in subject, but based on his friends' relieved expressions, none of them wanted to linger on the previous topic. Diplomacy immediately picked up on Faelynn's intent, responding quickly.
"Remember that I am not a mind reader," they said. "Discerning people's intentions – especially without speaking to them directly – is an inexact science. Only a Gellin would be able to answer your question with any degree of certainty, and even then, people change their minds on a daily basis."
Diplomacy lifted their fabricated Elven mouth into a smile. "With all that accounted for, I believe we should be safe. The Merfolk are fond of us, the Dwarves are afraid of us, and the Elves are embarrassed over their debacle with the duel gone wrong. As long as the coalition itself doesn't implode, they won't try to harm us."
"That's good." Faelynn hesitated, seeming restless. "Have Vul'to and I been doing an adequate job of appearing 'reasonable' to our new allies?"
"More than adequate." Diplomacy's eyes narrowed dangerously. "If there are still worthless cretins who treat you unfairly, come to me right away. We'll figure out the best way to shred their self-esteem into tiny ribbons."
Faelynn's restlessness faded as she offered Diplomacy a broad smile. The good vibes were infectious, causing Rob to grin as well. He wasn't sure when the two had become friends, but it was reassuring to see that Diplomacy was successfully integrating into Riardin's Rangers. While Rob hadn't been worried that his Party would outright reject the former Skill, if only for his sake, there was a stark difference between tolerating a friend's hanger-on and wanting to become friends with them yourself.
He knew that very well. Outside of Jason, Rob's attempts at making friends back on Earth were...mixed. Even among the people he hung out with, there were plenty of instances where he'd felt like the outsider looking in. As if everyone was happily sitting around a campfire, and for some reason, he was the only one who couldn't feel its warmth. Jason had always been happy to introduce Rob to his sports friends, but that usually didn't go anywhere either. Their lifestyles were too different. He'd ended up as the tolerated hanger-on, and that was a worse feeling than just being alone.
Rob massaged his head, dispelling the bitterly nostalgic memories. Doesn't matter. It's in the past. And that won't happen to Diplomacy – I'll make sure of it. Thankfully, they'd get their chance to shine when the coalition contacted King Elnaril. If anyone could get the reclusive Leader to open up, it was the living embodiment of a silver tongue.
Couple more days and we'll reach Arieda City. Rob gazed out once more into the fields of sweeping, yellow grass. After that...we'll just have to see where the dice fall.
Later that night, Rob found himself facing an urgent dilemma.
Currently, that dilemma was laying on top of him and drooling. He looked down at Keira's naked form, draped closely over him, perfectly beautiful in every way – as she snored like a clogged wood chipper. It wasn't the first time she'd done that, but usually it was quieter. Adorable, even.
Tonight? Not so much.
Rob felt himself being pulled in all directions, wracked with torturous indecision. Dare he try to move? Attempting an escape might wake her up. He didn't want her sleep to suffer like his was. Unfortunately, coffee hadn't been invented in Elatran yet, and the other coalition factions would look at him funny if he spent the next day stumbling around like a half-dead zombie.
On the other hand, he really enjoyed Keira being sprawled on him like this. It was almost worth setting fire to his sleep schedule. Laying here with her would certainly be the nicest all-nighter he'd ever pulled.
Maybe I can sneak out and grab some earplugs...which...also don't exist. God damnit. Would it be a waste of army resources if I asked some people to invent earplugs tomorrow? Eh, who cares, doing it anyway. In the meantime, I could...I don't know, pack some dirt together and shove it up my ears? That grosses out my delicate modern sensibilities.
Just then, Rob's thoughts were interrupted by a soft thwump coming from right outside their tent.
As if something had hit the ground.
Keira's eyes snapped awake. At once, the two of them hastily – yet silently – threw on clothes and grabbed their weapons. Rob took point in front of her and preemptively activated Dauntless Reprisal. Keira would've signaled him if Danger Sense was going off, so they weren't in any immediate peril, but it always paid to be prepared. Nodding to her, Rob yanked the tent flap open and peered outside.
A Harpy awaited them. He looked pretty much like the race had been described to Rob; long feathered wings, voluminous hair, talons for feet, and fingers that ended in taloned claws as well. The Harpy stared at them, unmoving, completely unperturbed at having been discovered.
"You know," Rob said, "if this is an assassination attempt, it's the sloppiest I've ever seen. And I've seen a lot."
The Harpy continued staring at them in silence, more placid than a wax figurine. Something indistinct flashed in Rob's memories, just enough for a sense of dread and unease to creep upwards.
"We must speak," the Harpy finally intoned. Rob cast Identify, confirming that the Harpy was a weak Utility Class user named Featro, and promptly sent alert Messages to the rest of Riardin's Rangers members. Even if this Harpy wasn't a threat, there could be more waiting in the wings. The coalition needed to be ready for an ambush from above.
"By all means," Rob said, stepping back. "Come right in. You aren't weirding me out in the slightest."
He and Keira watched Featro carefully as the Harpy entered their tent with stiff, robotic motions. They waited for him to start talking, exchanging wary glances when he just...stood there. "How did you find me, anyway?" Rob eventually asked. "Our tent is the same as everyone else's."
"Because we are drawn to you, Heartkiller."
Corruption flared from within Featro. Rob recoiled as if it was a forceful, physical blow. There'd been no warning; one moment, he Sensed nothing, and the next, a dense aura of Corruption was exuding from the Harpy.
So dense that Rob couldn't understand how Featro was still standing. Other people who'd been that infected with that much of Corruption were left bedridden, except for-
Rob's breath caught in his throat. The possessed Dwarf in Dhalerune Mines.
"Heed my words," Featro intoned, his eyes polluting with an impenetrable darkness. "You are walking into a trap."

2023.03.23 04:31 AdOne8250 RWBY X SAO : Finding love in GGO

Jaune had always struggled with fitting in at school. He was never quite sure why, but he always seemed to be the target of bullies and mean-spirited jokes. It wasn't until he discovered Gun Gale Online, or GGO, that he found an escape from his troubles.
At first, Jaune was just a casual player, logging on after school to blow off steam and relax. But as he spent more time in the virtual world, he found he had a natural talent for the game. His reflexes were lightning-fast, and his strategic mind allowed him to outmaneuver even the most skilled opponents.
Before long, Jaune had become one of the top players in GGO, known to all as the Photon Knight. He was a force to be reckoned with, feared and respected by his peers. Jaune's signature weapons were a unique white Photon Broadsword and a white Royal Guard MK 3, which he wielded with deadly precision.
In the virtual world, Jaune was a hero. He had found a place where he was valued and respected, where he could be whoever he wanted to be. But as time passed, he began to realize that he couldn't hide in the virtual world forever. Eventually, he would have to return to his real life, where the bullies and the teasing awaited him.
Despite his fears, Jaune continued to play GGO, honing his skills and building his reputation as the Photon Knight. He knew that one day, he would have to face his real-life problems head-on. But for now, he was content to escape into the virtual world, where he was a hero and a champion.
Jaune was surprised when he received the challenge from the Red Reaper. He had heard of the player before, but had never interacted with them directly. Jaune accepted the challenge, eager for a chance to test his skills against another top player.
When he logged on to the arena, Jaune was impressed by the Red Reaper's skill. She was a fierce opponent, and her red Photon Scythe was just as unique and deadly as Jaune's white Photon Broadsword. The two engaged in a thrilling battle, trading blows and dodging each other's attacks with lightning-fast reflexes.
As the fight wore on, Jaune began to realize that he might not be able to best the Red Reaper. She was just as skilled as he was, and her red Blue Rose MK 3 provided her with a powerful backup weapon that Jaune couldn't match. But he refused to give up, fighting with everything he had to try and turn the tide of the battle.
In the end, the fight ended in a tie, shocking both Jaune and everyone watching. It was a rare occurrence in GGO, where there was usually a clear winner and loser in every battle. But the tie only served to increase Jaune's respect for the Red Reaper. She was a skilled and honorable opponent, and Jaune knew that he had made a worthy ally in the virtual world.
After the fight, Jaune and the Red Reaper chatted for a bit, getting to know each other better. Jaune was surprised to learn that the Red Reaper was actually a girl, something he hadn't expected given her fierce reputation. But he was pleased to make a new friend, someone who understood the challenges of life in GGO and who could share his love of the game.
As Jaune logged off that day, he knew that he had found something special in GGO. It wasn't just a game anymore, but a place where he could connect with others and be his true self. And he knew that as long as he had his white Photon Broadsword and his friends in GGO, he would always be the Photon Knight, feared and respected by all.
As Jaune sat across from Ruby in the cozy cafe, he couldn't believe what he was seeing. It was his childhood friend, the same girl he used to play with at the park and attend school with. But she looked different now, more mature and confident, with a fierce determination in her eyes that he had never seen before.
As they talked, Jaune learned more about Ruby's life and the reasons why she had started playing GGO. He was shocked to hear that she had felt like an outcast even among her own family, due to her love of weapons and combat. Jaune had never realized that Ruby had been struggling with similar issues to his own, and he felt a newfound respect and admiration for her strength and determination.
Over the next few months, Jaune and Ruby continued to play GGO together, taking on tough bosses and honing their skills in friendly competition. Jaune felt a sense of relief and happiness whenever he was with Ruby, knowing that he had found someone who understood him and accepted him for who he was.
As they continued to play together, Jaune and Ruby's friendship deepened, and they found themselves confiding in each other about their hopes and fears for the future. Even outside of GGO, they would meet up at the cafe or hang out at the park, enjoying each other's company and the simple pleasures of life.
For Jaune, Ruby had become more than just a friend or a fellow player in GGO. She was a kindred spirit, someone who had been there with him through thick and thin, and who had helped him find his place in the world. And as they sat together in the cozy cafe, Jaune knew that he had found something truly special in Ruby, something that he would cherish for the rest of his life.
Years went by, and Jaune and Ruby's love for each other grew stronger with each passing day. They continued to play GGO together, taking on new challenges and supporting each other through their real-life struggles.
One day, Jaune decided that he was ready to take the next step in their relationship. He proposed to Ruby, and to his delight, she accepted without hesitation. They decided to get married in-game, surrounded by their friends and fellow GGO players. It was a beautiful ceremony, and Jaune and Ruby knew that they were meant to be together forever.
A month after the wedding, Jaune and Ruby decided to reveal their real-life selves to their friends in GGO. They wanted to show the world that they were proud of who they were, and that they were no longer afraid to be themselves.
To their surprise, their friends were shocked but accepting. Some of them even apologized for the way they had treated Jaune and Ruby in school, realizing that they had been wrong to judge them based on their interests and hobbies.
Jaune and Ruby felt a sense of relief and happiness, knowing that they had finally found acceptance and respect in both the virtual world and the real world. And as they looked out at the horizon together, hand in hand, they knew that their love would only continue to grow stronger with each passing day.

2023.03.23 03:43 campfireusa How Does Induction Cooking Work? Find Out The Answer Here!

How Does Induction Cooking Work? Find Out The Answer Here!

Induction cooking uses an electromagnetic field to heat the cookware directly - rather than the heat from the stovetop to the cookware.
But how does induction cooking work? We will explore the ins and outs of induction cooking and explain how this innovative cooking method works.
So if you're curious to learn more about induction cooking, keep reading to find out how it works and how to get the most out of it.

What Is Induction Cooking?

Induction cooking is type of cooking using a magnetic field to heat food..
Induction cooking is a type of cooking that uses a magnetic field to heat food quickly and efficiently. It is becoming increasingly popular due to its numerous benefits, such as its speed and safety.
Induction cooking uses an electromagnetic coil to create an alternating current in a pot or pan placed on top, creating a magnetic field that causes friction and generates heat.
This method requires induction-ready cookware, as standard cookware will not work on an induction cooker.
Induction cookers are easy to use, as they can be regulated with temperature and timing controls, making them convenient for chefs and home cooks.

Pros And Cons Of Induction Cooking

Due to its convenience and efficiency, induction cooking is an increasingly popular form of cooking. Yet, there are pros and cons for you to consider.


  • Its energy efficiency: Induction cooking requires very little energy compared to other cooking methods, making it an eco-friendly option.
  • Its safety: Induction cooktops generate heat only in the cookware, so the cooktop's surface remains cool to the touch. This makes it an excellent choice for households with young children.
  • Its speed: With induction cooking, the heat is generated directly in the pot or pan, which heats up quickly and efficiently. This makes it ideal for quick meals or to speed up the cooking process.


  • It can be expensive to purchase the necessary equipment.
  • Induction cooktops require unique cookware made from ferrous materials like cast iron or stainless steel. This means that many cookware items that people already own may need to be compatible with an induction cooktop.
  • Induction cooktops can be challenging to clean due to their smooth surface, as food is more likely to stick.
  • Induction cooking can produce a lot of heat, which can be uncomfortable in a small kitchen.
  • They are generally more expensive than traditional cooktops, and purchasing the necessary cookware can add to the overall expense.

How Does Induction Cooking Work?

It works by passing an electric current through a coil..
Induction cooking is an energy-efficient, safe, and fast way to cook food.
It uses electromagnetic currents to transfer heat directly to the pot or pan on the cooktop, as opposed to traditional gas or electric cooking methods, which transfer heat to the cooktop and then to the pot or pan.
Induction cooking works by passing an alternating electric current through a coil of copper wire located beneath the cooktop surface.
This produces a magnetic field that induces electric currents in the pot or pan, transferring heat directly to the food. This heat transfer is almost instantaneous, allowing food to cook quickly and evenly.


Is Induction Cooking Fast?

Induction cooking is one of the fastest cooking methods available. This type of cooking uses electromagnetism to directly heat cookware, making the heat transfer very efficient and quick.
Unlike other cooking methods, such as electric and gas, induction cooking can be up to 50% faster.

Does Induction Cooking Need Electricity?

Yes, induction cooking does need electricity to work. This cooking involves using a magnetic field to transfer energy from an induction coil to a pot or pan placed on the burner.

Does Induction Require Specialty Cookware?

As such, induction cooking does require specialty cookware. Non-magnetic cookware, such as aluminum, glass, and copper, will not work on induction cooktops, as the electromagnetic field has nothing to react with.

Is Cooking Different From Induction?

Cooking with an induction cooktop is notably different from other traditional cooking methods. Induction cooktops use electromagnetic fields to directly heat the cookware, rather than relying on direct heat that is produced by a flame or an electrical heating element.


Induction cooking is a unique and efficient way to cook food. It cooks food faster than traditional methods and is safer because it does not produce open flames.
So how does induction cooking work? Induction cooking involves using an electromagnetic field to produce heat and is ideal for those who want to save money and energy on their cuisine.
Induction cooking is also an excellent option for those who want healthier meals as it does not require using oils and fats.

2023.03.23 03:30 Toa_of_Memes SMFV: Book WrestleMania 39 Night 2

Asuka vs Bayley vs Bianca Belair{c}
Pre-Match Recap
“BAYLEY HAS DONE IT!!! SHE’S IN THE ELIMINATION CHAMBER MATCH” Corey Graves yelps on commentary after a monumental performance against Candice LaRae from Bayley. We see Damage CTRL celebrating as Asuka stalks in the background. Bayley’s performance in the actual Chamber match is great, until SHE GETS THE BLUE MIST FROM ASUKA!!! Techno blares over superimposed images showing Asuka’s roots as Kana, showing how truly predatorial Asuka can be.
Bayley struggles from here, until gaining a win over Natalya. We see Bayley scream into a mic, “ASUKA, I'VE ALWAYS HAD TO PLAY SECOND FIDDLE TO YOU!” We smash cut to NXT footage of Bayley, overcoming obstacles, doing Bayley things, until we get to TakeOver Brooklyn 2, when Bayley lost her NXT Women’s Championship to none other than Asuka, which is where we leave their story for now.
Bianca Belair comes on screen, cutting an intense promo about how being champion has changed her life. How she’s helped people through hard times, and that Bayley doesn’t deserve to call herself a champion, when she finds herself interrupted by Asuka, who scuttles toward Bianca and gestures at the belt, basically making the match. Bianca must withstand the typhoon that is Asuka, and the assassin that is Bayley.
Bianca and Bayley start the match, pounding away at each other with hammer-like fists, and lock up. This gives Asuka a chance to launch herself into a flying knee, hitting Baylay squarely in the jaw. As Baylay falls, Asuka spins around to stand up, coming Face to Face with Bianca. Bianca then kicks Asuka in the stomach, and tries for a Doctor Bomb, but Asuka slips out, lands on her feet and loads Bianca with several stiff kicks, one going directly to the head. As Bianca rolls out of the ring, into the awaiting group of doctors, Bayley slides into the ring with a chair, BUT EATS A DROPKICK, FALLING TO THE CANVAS!!!
The match goes on, Bianca fighting the doctors to let her wrestle, being diagnosed with a cuncussion. As the cameras pan to the ring, we see Bayley in the Asuka Lock, but the leader of Damage Ctrl gets her foot on the rope. As Asuka scuttles away, Bianca breaks from the doctors and smashes Bayley in the nose, spurts of blood dripping in the aftermath. Bianca loses her balance after letting go of the canvas, and Bayley rises to her feet and backs up, right into the Empress of Tomorrow. Bayley turns, AND GETS MISTED!!! ASUKA LAUNCHES HERSELF INTO A YAKUZA KICK, AND PINS BAYLEY!!!
Asuka def Bayley and Bianca via Pinfall to Bayley
As Asuka walks into gorilla, she comes upon someone she hasn’t seen in years. The very man who is responsible for Asuka’s wrestling style .
She embraces WWE Hall of Famer
Keiji Mutoh.
Dominik Mysterio vs Rey Mysterio: Mullet vs Mask
Pre-Match Recap
SummerSlam 2022: The day that Dominik betrayed Rey. The day he joined Finn Balor’s Judgement Day by laying out Rey with a massive lariat, and signifying his change from white-meat babyface to the chicken-shit heel he is now. Dom’s impressive rise in the ranks, his many attacks on Rey and his family with Rhea, into an in-ring promo between the two. Dominik launches into a tirade that ends with “It's funny. We both know I’m not really your son. And I’d rather have a dead dad, than a deadbeat like you. So call me by my real name.
Dominik Guerrero.”
This gets a massive reaction from Rey. “HOW FUCKING DARE YOU DISRESPECT EDDIE!!”
Rey calls Dominik a “Pendejo” and the match is set. Adam Pearce, because he hates mullets, made this match Mask vs Mullet.
Rey enters the stadium to a massive pop. Hall of Famer, Lucha Legend, Rey Mysterio. As Rey gets in the ring, we don’t hear the Judgement Day theme.
We hear…
Absolutely nuclear heat for the newly reborn Dominik Guerrero. Dominik rolls to the ring in a low-rider, much like his biological father, Eddie Guerrero. Finn and Damien Priest sit in the back, as the new Smackdown Women’s Champion, Rhea Ripley lounges in the passenger seat. As Rey stares daggers into Dominik’s eyes, Dom smirks, and just gets more douchey.
The match begins, Dom just rocking Rey with a big boot, starting the match off with a dominant streak of strikes and chain grappling, as Dom knows more than anyone to keep Rey on the ground, away from the ropes. As Dom tries to work on Rey’s formerly injured knee, he gets frustrated and throws Rey into the corner, giving Rey the advantage he needs. Rey gives Dom a Hurricanrana, DOM HITS THE SECOND ROPE, AND DODGES THE 619!!!
The match goes back to Dominik’s favor after this, taking Rey to the outside and slamming him into the crowd barricade, into the awaiting arms of the Judgement Day. As Damian Priest whips Rey towards Dominik Guerrero, Rey LEAPS UP AND GIVES DOMINIK A HURRICANRANA INTO THE RING!!! As Rey slides into the ring, Dominik stomps on his head, to stop any possible offense. As Dominik grabs Rey by the head, he has an epiphany. I’m a Guerrero, why haven’t I done this?
Dominik puts his father in a Suplex position, and delivers. But instead of going for a pin, he rolls to the side, and delivers a second, and then a third. The crowd boos the Three Amigos, but Fom pays no mind, as he does a shimmy, climbs to the top rope TO DELIVER A FROGSPLASH, AND DELIVERS!!!
REY KICKS OUT!! Dominik, confused, looks at his Mami for guidance, but sees no one. Has Finn taken them backstage? As Dom turns, REY DROPKICKS DOM INTO THE ROPES AND DELIVERS A 619!!! Rey stops for a moment, AND SPRINGBOARDS UP FOR A WEST COAST POP!!!
Rey Mysterio def. Dominik Guerrero via Pinfall
As Rey holds the clippers, he gets a flashback to his best friend, Eddie Guerrero. Eddie had a mullet once. Rey throws down the clippers and embraces his son, who hugs him back. Emotions and stuff.
Intercontinental Championship Match
Gunther {C} vs Sheamus
This match doesn’t get much build. It’s Gunther vs Sheamus. Big Slappy European Guys. That’s what we get. It Sells.
(List of moves)
Gunther Splash
Brogue Kick
Rear Naked Choke
Brogue Kick
Sheamus def. Gunther via Pinfall
Big Meaty Men. Very cool match. Gets 7 Meltzer stars despite not being in Tokyodome.
Womens Tag Team Championship
Readhead Inc. (Becky/Lita){c} vs Damage Ctrl
Pre-match recap
Lita and Becky Lynch won the Women’s tag team titles just a few weeks ago, taking them off Damage Ctrl in quick fashion. While Bayley is deadset on winning the Raw Women’s Championship, Dakota Kai and Iyo Sky (still not big on the name) have been repairing their reputation as phenomenal singles wrestlers, but still aren’t quite on the same page in the Tag Team scene. As Trish Stratus made her return, Dakota Kai attacked the former Women’s Champion, prompting Lita to beat up Dakota, blah blah blah Sonya Deville booked this match on the card from the courtroom.
Iyo and Lita begin the match, Iyo using her speed to outmaneuver Lita, lashing the Women's tag team champion with stiff kicks, laying out Lita. Iyo tags in Dakota Kai, but as Dakota grabs Lita, the Queen of Extreme chops Dakota and hits the former NXT Women’s Champion with a lariat that gets a two-count.
The match goes on, Lita tagging in Becky Lynch, and Becky Lynch, absolutely destroying Dakota Kai with a sick DDT, getting a two count. Dakota hits Becky with a Pele kick, knocking The Man back enough to tag in Iyo, who springboards yo Becky, getting a massive missile Dropkick in, nabbing a one and a half count. But here’s when the communications break down between Iyo and Dakota. Dakota blind tags Iyo, but due to lack of a plan, gets taken down by BEKCY LYNCH, WHO LOCKS IN THE DISAEM-HER, but Iyo breaks that with a Senton, WHICH BRINGS LITA IN, LITA THROWING IYO TO THE OUTSIDE TO BRAWL!!!
Becky and Dakota continue, Becky working on weakening Dakota’s arm for the Disarm-her, but DAKOTA DODGES A LARIAT, AND ANSWERS WITH A SUPERKICK!! The match goes into Dakota’s favor UP UNTIL IYO REFUSES TO TAG IN!!! SHES HAS ENOUGH OF DAKOTA’S SHIT!!! BECKY LOCKS IN THE DISARM-HER, DAKOTA TAPS!!!!!
Redhead Inc. def. Damage CTRL via Submission
WWE Undisputed Universal Championship
Roman Reigns vs. Cody Rhodes
Pre-match Recap
Romans title rain, lasting nearly 3 years at this point, has had effects on the business. Cody, as far as he claims, is here not to save WWE, but to save the business. To finish his father’s story, he needs to eradicate the immovable object that is Roman Reigns.
And as Cody has beaten big men before, he hasn’t beaten somebody with quite the caliber of Roman reigns in quite some time. His fight Wardlow, he truly had a great fight against Maxwell Jacob Friedman. And he 100% completely defeated Ray Sizzim. Cody, coming from undesirable to un-goddamn-deniable, this journey has let him hear. And as a Roman keeps dominating, so will Cody. Their collision was truly destined for WrestleMania.
On Raw a few weeks ago, Paul took Cody aside backstage for a little talk. “Cody, you seriously need to rethink this.” Paul Heyman says. “ The Tribal Chief has beaten everyone in his path, some of whom have gone to… other places. Places that you’re familiar with.” Paul, talking about Danielson here, equating Cody with Bryan, as if to say that Roman would send The American Nightmare back to AEW. “ I know your father’s story very well…” Cody interrupts Paul here, “DON’T YOU DARE TALK ABOUT MY FATHER. YOU HIRED HIM FOR ONE MATCH, which yes, helped my family out immensely, but you don’t get to bring him up.” Cody, incensed, raises his fist to Heyman's face. “ And of you EVER. Talk about my family again, Roman’s gonna have to find someone else to hold those titles.”
Roman, after dealing with the mutiny of Sami Zayn, and the resulting fall out from that, is tired. After the Usos lost to the tag team championships last night, Roman Reigns is desperate. If the Usos can lose the tag team championships to Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn, he can lose these titles that Paul Heyman carries for him to the American Nightmare. And if he does lose those titles, what happens to the family. What happens to the bloodline. He’s already had the most dominant run with the titles in his family history, but if Roman loses, he will still feel like he is disappointing his family. Because that’s what the Bloodline is about. It’s not about Roman, it’s not about Solo, it’s not about Paul Heyman, it’s not about the Usos, titles, any of that shit.
It’s about the legacy of a wrestling dynasty that has finally been able to attain a true world championship status. This isn’t just Roman versus Cody. This isn’t just WWE versus AEW. This is two wrestling families colliding. This is not a wrestling match, This is a fucking gang war.
49 minutes of pyro
Cody and Roman stand toe to toe. Shades of Rock/Hogan at WrestleMania 18 at the beginning of the match. Cody, ever the man of habit, reaches out to shake Roman’s hand. Roman rejects the Code of Honor and the match begins. The two stars lock up, Roman having the strength advantage, enough to push Cody into the corner, where the ref breaks them up. They tie up again, Cody, this time being able to turn Roman into the turnbuckles, but instead of landing punches,Cody taps the pectoral muscles of Roman reigns. Is it a taunt? No. It’s a call back.
The match begins to pick up pace. Roman and Cody, each laying in a clothesline after clothesline after clothesline, but not being able to knock one other down. Drink one of these exchanges instead of delivering his own clothes line, Cody, Rhodes ducks Romans attempt at a clothesline, jumps up to the middle rope and attempts for a Cody Cutter, but gets caught by Roman who gives Cody a sidewalk slam. Cody quickly recovers from this, whipping Roman into the ropes where they do the thing where like leapfrog, and shit. I don’t know, what the fuck is it called.
The match goes on, Cody landing some very good maneuvers, onto Roman, getting a two count off of a disaster kick. Roman, however, rallies himself, and lays into Cody with several stiff punches and locks in the guillotine, Cody works himself into the ropes breaking the hold. Roman, instead of pulling Cody away to guarantee a win, starts to let his ego show. “What the hell are you gonna do to me, Cody? I’ve been champion for almost 3 damn years dude, you couldn’t even run a company for that long.“ Cody, ever the quick witted, white boy, says “yeah, and in that time I’ve been something that you couldn’t even possibly fathom defeating. I beat racism!!!”
The match moved into its third and final phase. Finisher attempt, after finisher attempt after finisher attempt after finishing attempt after finisher attempt after finisher attempt. Cody dodge the Superman Punch, while Roman ends up getting out of a CrossRhodes, Cody, almost landing disaster kick, and Roman bounces off the ropes into a spear, getting a two count. this ends, though, when Roman throws Cody outside of the ring directly into solo, Soko was Samoan Spike.
Cody, rallies himself up and asks Solo to do it again. And again. And again. Until we see a trickle of Crimson, drip down Cody‘s face. Cody’s bleach blonde hair beginning to be stained with blood. Cody gives Solo a CrossRhodes, and slides into the ring to face off with Roman reigns once more. this is truly something the WWE universe hasn’t seen in a long time. Not just blood at WrestleMania, but a superstar going up against a professional wrestler. And this is what rallies Cody to hit a CrossRhodes on Roman. Then he gets up and it’s another. And then another. And then another. And then another. Until 10 CrossRhodes have been hit on Roman reigns.
Cody Rhodes def. Roman Reigns
The story… is over. Cody has relinquished his father’s regrets. He has ended ra- I mean Roman’s Reign of terror. And as a tear wells up in his eye for his dear ol’ dad…
Downstait plays.

2023.03.23 03:08 Guilty_Chemistry9337 I was Shooting B-roll for a Found Footage Horror Film. The Horror Found Me Instead.

“The Road Trip Project” was a placeholder name for a found footage horror film my friends and I wanted to produce. The script was a producer’s dream. Ultra-low budget. Great story and characters. Infinitely editable footage. And even if it didn’t smash the box office, it was destined to be at least a cult hit. It was the sort of project you can get so excited about that it’s easy to get tunnel vision. You start to fail to notice things, you make decisions that maybe you shouldn’t have.
For my part, I was so excited that I wanted to start filming some B-roll. That meant installing a dashcam in my car, and driving around my local area, late in the evening or in the dark of night. I’d been doing it for a few weeks and getting some great shots. I hadn’t any idea I could have been putting myself in danger.
I was almost done with the B-roll when I found something on the map that I hadn’t noticed before. It was a section of land not far away, but surprisingly difficult to access. “Off the beaten path” was putting it mildly. That meant anything could have been there. I thought that could have been cinematographic gold. That wasn’t what I found.
If you want to read the backstory, if you want to understand what had made me so excited that I almost lost everything, if you’d like to know what could have possessed me to explore where I wasn’t supposed to go, that’s all over on my subreddit
I found a place I hadn’t explored yet, a pretty big place I didn’t even really know existed. It sparked my interest. I’d collected more B-roll than I needed, but I was also still having fun, so I thought one more trip wouldn’t hurt.
The section of land was cut off on three sides by a great big curving meander of the river, with no bridges. The other side was cut off by the freeway. The only way to access it was through this long winding road that passed underneath the freeway, and that road itself was hard to access. I could tell from Google Earth that there were still people who went there. I’d see some farmers’ fields. That dark green of hazelnut orchards, and a few scattered houses. No towns, no businesses. The freeway was built back in the sixties, and I’d guess if anybody ever had an interest in developing that weird peninsula of land, that interest would have disappeared when the freeway went up. It was sort of like a little lost piece of land, in the middle of a well-populated larger valley. It piqued my curiosity.
At any rate, I got in my car, headed out just before sunset, and started recording. Just like I’d done plenty of times before.
I started feeling creeped out even before I reached that place. I got turned around a bit even trying to find the access road. Maybe I should have taken that as a hint. I can remember rounding a forested hill and then almost coming to a complete stop when I came to the point where the road dipped below the freeway. It was a low clearance, and there was a large brightly colored sign on the roadway. It was battered and dented, clearly, it had been struck many times by trucks that hadn’t been heading the warnings. There were also plenty of high wateflood signs, though they weren’t relevant that night. Underneath the freeway, where the road dipped down, there was a thin layer of dust. It would have been mud when the road flooded after heavy rains. I could see it rising up the pillars that held up the freeway. It meant that when this flooded, the entire section of land would be inaccessible. Just beyond that was a small bridge over a small creek, no doubt the source of seasonal flooding.
It was almost completely dark when I finally crossed under the freeway and over the bridge into that lost land. I was worried if there was anything really good to film it’d be too dark, but more I had this uncomfortable indistinct sense of dread, and I didn’t know why. I guess at the time I was thinking about how easy it would be to get cut off by high water. It felt so isolated out there.
Then there were the hazelnut orchards. They didn’t use the same dwarf variety. I think I tried to reason it as maybe these were the first experimental orchards that hazelnut farmers had started planting many decades ago. Or maybe they’d been planted before that variety was developed. The trees here were huge, forty feet and higher. They were still in rows but had grown so thick and twisted, roots digging up out of the ground, branches growing low to soak up every bit of light, that the rows between the trees seemed completely inaccessible. It looked like the Black Forest from some fairy tale horror story. Soon it became too dark to see.
For a while, I was reminded of my night drive through that wetland preserve. I supposed whatever heavy equipment the state uses to cut foliage away from roadways wasn’t designed to fit underneath the freeway. Grass and bushes grew right up to the shoulder. The road itself wasn’t in good condition. Though a lack of truck traffic seemed to leave the potholes not too bad. There were ruts worn into the asphalt as if it hadn’t been repaved since before the freeway went up.
The big fat moths were here. They seemed to come out of the brush, attracted by my headlights. What was new was the bats. They swooped and corkscrewed down out of the inky black to snatch up the moths. They seemed reckless and unconcerned about my car, so I started to slow down a little. Weeks earlier I’d hit a rabbit while filming. I hit my brakes, I swerved, yet I still hit it. There just wasn’t anything I could have done, still, I’d felt bad about it. I didn’t want to hit anything else.
Almost as soon as that memory came into mind I had to slam on my brakes. Something big had started waddling out of the tall grass and directly into the path of my car. I managed to stop just in time and got a good look at the thing right in front of me.
At first, I thought it was a feral pig, which I’d never seen before, and I hadn’t thought it was an issue in the area. Instead, it was the fattest, biggest opossum I’d ever seen before. I thought at first its size was explained by it being a mother, with a load of babies on her back. Instead, it was just patches where its fur had fallen out and exposed dark sores underneath. It stopped in its tracks and turned to look at me. In addition to the mange, it seemed to have that disease that makes the opossum's eyes go wall-eyed. They were reflecting my headlights and almost seemed to glow this strangely lovely shade of turquoise. They were so bright it was almost blinding. Then, as I watched, the eyes seemed to move. They started to converge inwards, no longer walleyed, but looking straight. I swear, it seemed to be looking past my headlights and looking straight at me, where I sat in the driver’s seat. It couldn’t have possibly seen me, yet I felt sure it was. It didn’t move, just stared, blocking me. I’ve seen possums play dead, but it wasn’t doing that. I worried it was in some weird halfway state, induced by my headlights.
Just before I convinced myself to try to squeeze around it, it started waddling off into the brush on the other side of the road and disappeared. So I started driving again, but I swear I could hear a sound to my left in the same spot where it had vanished. I think it was growling. I don’t think possums do that.
I continued on my way, but I’d already had enough. I wanted to turn around and go home, but I was looking for a good open place to do it; I didn’t want to risk a three-point turnaround on such a narrow road. I’d seen several roads go off to either side, and I suppose I could take one of those and just loop around, yet I wasn’t quite so desperate to take one yet. The road curved to the right and gently dipped, then sharper to the left, and for the second time I slowed to a halt. Ahead of me was an old antique wooden covered bridge. I’d already found several of them since I’d started shooting B-roll. Back in the 90s, they’d been semi-popular tourist donations. Local towns had celebrated them. There were maps and driving tours. I hadn’t read a thing about this one. It should have made this little lost section of the valley kind of famous. Maybe they kept it off the lists because they didn’t want the tourists. Or maybe it had a problem with upkeep.
Regardless, I started driving across, real slow. There was just enough room to squeeze my car through. Everything was wood, including the driving surface. I guess that’s why I didn’t see it until I was almost underneath it. I was looking down at the surface. Thick wooden planks, probably oak. Probably from trees chopped down a hundred and fifty years ago. They should have still been solid, but you’ll have to excuse me for being nervous.
It was right at the end when I’d almost reconnected with pavement when I looked up. There, at the far end of the bridge, was an effigy hanging from a rope. It sort of looked like a scarecrow, though far more sinister. Denim overalls, farmer’s boots, a plaid flannel shirt, work gloves, a bag over whatever formed the head. I didn’t see the knot that was tied at the neck, but I assume it was a classic standard noose. I tried to think of why anybody would want to hang such a thick-looking thing. Some of the people who lived way out in the boondocks liked to fly flags that gave strong implications. It still didn’t make sense though. I was sure it was just an effigy, though I have no idea why I was so certain the way it hung just made it look like it only weighed a few pounds. There’s no way that could have been a real person. I have no idea what it was actually stuffed with. Straw, newspaper, it doesn’t matter.
Well, I was firmly spooked, either way. I sure as shit wasn’t going to drive under that thing and beyond the effigy. I put it in reverse and backed out of that bridge, faster than I’d driven in. The dashcam doesn’t show it, it was facing the wrong way, but it felt like the bridge’s wooden frame was even narrower than it had been before. A minor annoyance had become a serious challenge. I hardly hesitated though. I came out of that bridge, still in reverse, the green grass and gray asphalt returning in the white light of my reverse lights. I continued on that way, looking over my shoulder, for some amount of time. I had this anxious thought I could come upon another driver heading the other way, or the same way coming from the front.
I couldn’t keep that up, there was just too far to go with no good spot to turn around. So I finally bit the bullet and did a three-point turn. First I backed into the tall grass on the shoulder, hearing sticks scraping against my undercarriage. I shifted into drive and this time stuck my front end over the edge of the road, just a bit, just past perpendicular to the direction of the road. Only this time I felt this sick lurch. My front wheels seemed to dip precipitously, like there was a huge drop-off obscured by the grass. I slammed it back into reverse and hit the gas. Being a front-wheel drive, my car spun out for a few terrifying seconds before catching back onto the road. I turned sharply and was facing the right direction again, back toward that access road.
As I shifted back into drive I hesitated just a second. There was life everywhere. It seemed I’d insulted the nature just past the road’s shoulders, and now it was streaming out of the grass. Snakes wriggled across the road, giant black spiders, huge beetles that looked like giant cockroaches, and no such thing was supposed to live around here. The moths swarmed, along with brown and black ones, a trillion mosquitos, swarms of gnats, huge dragonflies, some of which seemed to drag remnants of spiderwebs behind them, reflecting the light of my headlamps. The bats swarmed too, seconds later, and when I heard a loud thump on the roof of my car, I floored it.
I drove way too fast for safety. I wasn’t concerned about running over rabbits anymore. Or raccoons or possums for that matter. If I hit something, I’d just deal with the bodywork later. Then the idea of some person walking out of that grass came into my mind, an intrusive thought. I slowed down just out of worry. I blasted past a side road. I wish I’d taken it earlier. Now it meant it wasn’t the shortest route out, so I ignored it. At least until I had to slam on my brakes again. Not past that side road, the main road was blocked. There were little turquoise orbs impeding my path. All of them in two-close set pairs. I recognized the possum that was the closest pair. To its sides were a number of other possums. I saw raccoons as well. There was a bunch of little nutria nearer the shoulders. Behind them, a pack of coyotes. I could just barely make them out. I’d never seen a pack of coyotes before, just lone wanderers. What I couldn’t identify were the blue-green reflective eyes standing behind the coyotes. Behind and above. Whatever was there was six feet tall if it were an inch. The ones behind them, the ones a good eleven feet tall, I don’t even like to think about.
Again I flew into reverse, all the way back past that side road. Back into drive, and I flew down the side road. I didn’t see any street signs. I was hoping as hard as I could that there would be more side roads. Hopefully two more rights, and then I could hook a left back onto the access road.
I hadn’t memorized this patch of land when I’d found it on Google Earth, but I’d remembered there were a number of roads. And except where they were confined by rivers and streams, generally, they ran the usual grid pattern.
The brush on the side seemed to recede and was soon replaced by farmers' fields. Off in the distance, I could see the mercury lamps of distant households and farms. This was what most of the valley looked like by night, and while I didn’t relax, I did start to feel a little more comfortable.
I turned my high beams on, and the darkness receded. Ahead of me, on the right, was one of those giant oaks near the side of the road. A section was carved out to let the power lines run through. This time I saw it before I got close. I saw it, but I kept going, only slowing down a little. I didn’t stop until it was at the upper edge of the cone of my high beams. It was the effigy, hanging from the tallest branch of that tree, right over the road.
I saw it and I watched it. It slowly rotated as it hung. I was sure it was the same one I’d seen earlier, impossibly moved. Same boots, same denim overalls, same shirt, even the same color. Then I watched as the dark spot started to spread. At first I thought it was pissing itself. I think that was because of the overalls. I mean, we’ve all seen people piss their pants at some point, how many times have we seen people bleed out? The spot of wetness didn’t start in the crotch, but high up, nearer the chest, nearer the heart. I was sure it was blood now, as sure as I was that it was the same effigy. And yet still I was convinced, despite the bleeding, that it was an effigy. A human body should have hung heavier.
I kept going. I didn’t want to turn around and face that roadblock again. I risked going on, though I did swerve so that I didn’t drive directly under it. I think I saw it dripping long after it was out of my field of view.
I drove perhaps another mile, fast as I dared. Ahead of me, the road came to an end, but thankfully at a crossroads. My first bit of luck, I had the chance to turn right. Hopefully, there’d be another and connect back to the access road, on the other side of those creatures forming the roadblock.
I was always a good driver. My father had been a good instructor when I was a teen. He’d taught me about the petty nature of cops, and how to always follow the rules, and always use the turn signals, even if I was in a parking lot. I pulled to a halt at the stoplight, my turn signal already on for the 100 feet previously. I looked dutifully to the left, and there my heart rose into my throat. There was traffic approaching. They were still far off, maybe minutes off. I could make my turn easily. The problem was… there were dozens of them, maybe scores of cars and pick-up trucks, or so it seemed by the headlights too many. I hadn’t thought there were that many people in this little lost section of land, yet here they were. And they were coming in my direction, en masse. Angry. Determined. The first word to properly form in my mind was “mob.” Then I thought about the lynched effigy.
Forgetting traffic laws, I spun my steering wheel to the right and floored it. For just the briefest fraction of a second, I looked past the road, into the brush on the far side of the crossroad. There were eyes there. Waiting in the tall grass, watching me. Not just that familiar turquoise, but strange blues and reds. They weren’t possums or raccoons. I saw faces. Not human faces, but mockery of human faces. Like masks. Wrinkled. Grooved. Spiraled. I have no real words to describe them properly. Though I saw them clearly despite the fraction of a second before I was down the road and speeding away.
I drove like a madman, and I’m sure you would have too. Eight, ninety miles an hour down a narrow but relatively straight country road. After ninety I just stopped watching the speedometer, even though I drove faster, even though my tires started to shake violently. I’d like to say I was focused on the road. I think I was more preoccupied with my rearview mirror. Again, the dashcam never recorded it, but I was keeping an eye on all those vehicles behind me. I wanted them to get farther away, but they weren’t. It was the whole reason I was driving so recklessly. The only thing it could mean is that they were driving as fast as I was, and that was no comfort at all.
When I looked forward and saw it for the third time, I slammed on my brakes again. I was thrown against my seatbelt and it was hard enough to leave a bruise. When braking at over a hundred miles per hour, it takes a frettingly long time to stop in an emergency. When I finally stopped, it was right there, again at the top limit of my headlights. It was the effigy. Higher than it had been on the bridge, lower than it had been hanging from the tree. The problem was… there was no tree at the side of the road. There was no bridge, no structure of any kind.
I had to know. I couldn’t help it. I was already terrified beyond belief, but I couldn’t help it. I had to know. I opened the latch to my door. It was locked, and I had to find the unlock button. I always do that. I now opened my door and finally smelled the air of this place. It was thick. Warmer than it should have been. It reminded me of petrichor, that heady smell after it first starts to rain after a long time, only more organic, botanical. It smelled like what I imagine the jungle smells like. Not a real jungle. A primitive, ancient, primordial jungle.
I opened the door just enough to lean out and look up. I saw that effigy, no windshield between it and my eyes. I saw a stretch of rope, lit by my headlights. Then I saw its dark silhouette against a black starry sky. It kept going up and up until I lost it. And above it, nothing to hang from. Only countless distant stars, and nothing else.
I slammed the door shut and floored it again. I didn’t bother to swerve this time, if it dropped and hit me, then it would hit me. My biggest concern was getting out of that place. My second biggest was doing so before the bright headlights behind me finally caught up.
I dared to hope again when I saw a crossroads to the right. I was sure this would link up with the access road and I’d have a way out. I like to think I at least understand the physics of stunt driving, even if I’ve never done it outside of video games. I took that corner better than any corner I’ve taken in my life. Hard braking on a straight just before entering the line, taking the line exactly like I’d picture it in my head, hammering back down on the gas right when I need to, this time heading down the side road. I actually started to laugh. I felt like I’d accomplished something.
The laugh died in my throat when I looked in my rearview mirror. I was certain that those other people in other cars couldn’t possibly have taken that turn as well as I had. They weren’t bothering to. They all turned together, leaving the road entirely. It had turned from a single file line directly behind me to a sort of echelon, each one still pointed straight at me, plowing through some farmer’s field. Impossibly, they weren’t losing any speed at all. This was the point I started wondering if those were even real headlights. Part of me wishes the dashcam had caught it. Part of me doesn’t care anymore.
I remember letting out this choking sob when I saw the access road. Seconds later I turned a hard sharp left and headed back to where the road dipped below the freeway. I started thinking I might actually make it, despite how close those headlights were getting.
They weren’t really headlights. They had all caught up with each other now and were all one giant mass. They were just behind me now. Close enough it hurt to look in the mirror. My hand shot out and I almost knocked my mirror out of its mount. I saw how they moved though, how they moved with respect to each other. They were like eyes, but not eyes. They weren’t pairs. They turned and twisted around each other, flipping and spinning like they were jockeying for a better position with other predators. They were like the tips of long-reaching things that stretched back far behind the tips. Of course, I couldn’t see any of this. Only the lights, and not on camera.
I saw that little bridge over the creek and started to weep. I saw the freeway, and where the road passed underneath, leading I was certain to safety. I took that dip way too fast. I had that unnerving floaty feeling as my car caught air for a half second, then the terrible crunch as my poor car bottomed out on the other side of the dip. I didn’t recognize it until I was a mile or two away, but there was that low guttural roar of my engine, now detached from my muffler.
It didn’t matter. I looked in my side mirror. The lights had stopped in their tracks, still twisting and twirling, angry somehow. They’d stopped at the edge that lost land, at the freeway, or perhaps at that little running creek just beyond.
I was safe. I started to laugh until I screamed. With a terrible thump, it hit me. That effigy. Right on my hood and windshield. A big wet thump, and I screamed and it obscured my vision completely. I didn’t swerve, I didn’t break, and then it started to slide, and the effigy finally fell off, blown by the wind. I could see the road again, through a layer of blood all over my windshield. Looking back, I think it’d been thrown in rage.
It took a lot of wiper fluid before I could see properly again, not that I slowed down. It took me a little under an hour to get back home. There’d been a rainstorm along the way, and my car was clean by the time I pulled into my driveway. I just grabbed my dashcam, walked in, said nothing about it to my wife, who’d been used to my shooting excursions, went to my office and cried.
The damage to my exhaust cost a couple of thousand to have fixed. I didn’t even care. It was the last physical evidence of what happened that night. Except for what I’d recorded on that camera. I haven’t watched it yet. It would show the possum. The roadblock of the possum and its allies. The effigy, including the last time it landed on my hood. And those faces. I think that’s what I fear the most. Those faces.
I haven’t watched it yet. I don’t want to. I know I caught them, I don’t have to look, and I’m not going to. I don’t know what happened that night, but I’m certain it’s supernatural. There are no doubt there are a million people who would love to see that footage. It would change everything. I don't want to show it.
I haven’t talked to Andy and Mike about it. Haven’t talked to my wife or anybody else. I’m just going to finish my duties for the Road Trip Project, and then that’s it. I’m done. Nobody needs that footage.
I go out a lot less since this happened. I think I like it that way. It’s safe, at home. I think my wife is starting to worry. Mike and Andy seem to have noticed I’m not as outgoing as I used to be. That’s fine with me. I went to a place I wasn’t supposed to go. I think that’s why I’m still alive. I think I trespassed, and everything I saw in that lost place wanted me to leave. I can respect that. I will respect that. That’s why I don’t think I’ll show the footage to anybody. If they do, they might be tempted to explore. That would make them, it, whatever it was… that would make them angry. And if I can go there, that means they could come here.

Match #1: NXT Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royale - Winner Receives A Main Roster Contract


NXT Roadblock (3/7/23): Grayson Waller Effect w/ Shawn Michaels
After weeks of continuously getting on each other’s nerves, Grayson Waller and Shawn Michaels now have the opportunity to hash things out on the former’s acclaimed talk show. Following a commercial break, Grayson is seen sitting down, arrogant smirk and all on his face. But right before he can speak, HBK’s signature entrance theme blares throughout the arena, startling and agitating Waller. Shawn turns back the clock, giving his signature outstretched leg pose on the ramp before eventually making his way to the ring, not even bothering to look at Grayson as he passes him.
GW: “Well well Shawn, look at you. Wearing a cowboy hat, looking confident, continuing to take the spotlight away from younger talent and focusing only on yourself…”
SM: “Get to the point, Waller.”
GW: “That is my point. You hear, but you don’t listen. I, and plenty of other people backstage, are getting sick of you playing favorites. We get it, you like Carmelo Hayes, but why should he get opportunities that we don’t?”
SM: (quietly) “Maybe because he’s just better?”
GW: “What?”
SM: “Nothing. Look, I get it, you want to find something biased against you to make your inability to get the job done seem justified. But you can’t blame management or everything around you every time you fail or screw-up.”
GW: “Says the man that “lost his smile” when everyone backstage started to see who you really were.”
Shawn’s initial expression of indifference turns towards a look of slight anger, and he walks closer to Waller now.
GW: “Oh, you want to fight me now? How about at NXT Stand and Deliver? What do the fans think about seeing Grayson Waller vs. the Heartbreak Kid Shawn Michaels?!”
On cue, the fans respond positively to the idea, cheering on while Michaels tries to regain his composure and steps back.
SM: “The answer is no.”
The fans give slight boos as an expression of their disappointment.
GW: “Of course, not the first time you’ve taken your ball and gone home. But let me ask you something else Shawn: don’t you care about this brand? Don’t you care about NXT, the fans, the product, everything surrounding it? With all the change happening on Raw and SmackDown, it’s YOU who’s not adapting. For a guy who’s buddy buddy with Triple H, the least you could do is get NXT some more attention.”
The last remark seems to spark something in Michaels. He looks at Waller, studying him for a moment, before looking down as though he’s contemplating something.
SM: “You know what Waller? You made a good point there…I’ll think over what you said.”
GW: “So you mean I can fight you at Stand and Deliver?”
SM: “Oh no, I’m still definitely retired. You can fight this man instead though, I heard he's itching to fight you.”
On cue, Johnny Gargano makes his NXT return, darting to the ring to brawl with the man who ruined his farewell to NXT in December of 2021. Waller fights valiantly, but after getting a little too cocky and mocking HBK, Gargano is able to level Grayson with a Superkick to stand tall.

NXT (3/14/23):
To kick off the show, a video recap is played of what transpired on the Grayson Waller Effect. And from there, Shawn Michaels makes his way to the ring, ready to make an announcement: NXT stars are going to compete at WrestleMania! That’s right, to kick off Night Two of the spectacle, ten individuals will get the chance to earn themselves a guaranteed main roster contract on the brand of their choosing. But how will those individuals be determined? Two spots have already been locked up: the current NXT North American Champion Wes Lee, and the current NXT World Champion Bron Breakker. As for the remaining 8 slots, there will be a series of qualifying matches over the next couple of weeks (starting tonight), with the winners advancing to the battle royal at WrestleMania 39. And what better way to keep the hype going than with one of those qualifying matches right now!

Nathan Frazer vs. Andre Chase
These two individuals are quite the opposites: Nathan Frazer is a man who’s been gifted with immense physical talent and quickness, contributing to many fans considering him a strong up-and-comer. However, on the other side is Andre Chase, a man whose intellect and strategic ability has allowed him to literally create his own university. But in the end, it’s Frazer who schools Chase, leaving the founder of Chase University’s students just as disappointed as he is.

JD McDonagh vs. Duke Hudson
Looking to avenge Andre Chase’s loss earlier in the night, Duke Hudson steps into the ring looking ready to annihilate someone. However, even then he might not have the intensity to match that of the sadistic J.D. McDonagh, who showcases his scrappy nature despite Hudson having the height and weight advantage, eventually picking up the win as well. Afterwards, Hudson snaps, turning on Chase and viciously assaulting him to set up a singles match for Stand and Deliver.

Over the remaining couple of weeks, more and more superstars qualify, with individuals like Tony D’Angelo and Axiom looking impressive. Grayson Waller, the man who helped influence Shawn Michaels to get NXT more attention, falls in a qualifying match to the pure power of Odyssey Jones, but thanks to a last chance match involving people who lost their qualifiers, he’s still able to enter the battle royale following a win there.

Participants: Axiom, Bron Breakker, Damon Kemp, Grayson Waller, JD McDonagh, Nathan Frazer, Odyssey Jones, Tony D’Angelo, Von Wagner, Wes Lee
After weeks of anticipation, the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royale is finally here. With Bron Breakker having lost his title to Carmelo Hayes and Wes Lee his to Dragon Lee at Stand and Deliver, there’s no doubt going to be a wide range of winner possibilities. The match starts off with a bang, Von Wagner and Odyssey Jones staring each other down and beginning a war of hosses. Unfortunately, it doesn’t last too long before the remaining eight men realize that it’s in their best interest to take out the powerhouses, forcing them to the ropes and sending them both tumbling over to the outside.
Odyssey Jones and Von Wagner have been eliminated (0:59)
And with that, the playing field has now become more evenly balanced, and the remaining eight competitors separate into four separate fights. Breakker and Kemp match up well against each other, as well as Axiom and Frazer in a battle of speed. There’s also McDonagh and D’Angelo in a battle of a psychopath against a mobster, and Wes Lee vs Waller in a classic tale of cheerable underdog vs agitating villain. It’s not long before these separate matches split up however, as when Axiom looks to go for a high flying move from the top rope, Grayson Waller dropkicks him off the turnbuckle, eliminating him as he crashes to the floor.
Axiom has been eliminated (2:03)
Waller celebrates, but only momentarily, as Nathan Frazer begins targeting him next. Meanwhile, Breakker and Kemp are still going at it without any interference, but it’s not for long, as the former NXT Champion is able to lift Kemp in the Gorilla Press position before just tossing him to the outside.
Damon Kemp has been eliminated (3:38)
Tony D’Angelo tries to sneak up behind Breakker and eliminate him, but Bron sees it coming, elbowing D’Angelo away. Meanwhile, Nathan Frazer and JD McDonagh have now found themselves battling against one another on the ring apron. They start delivering some stiff shots, but in the end, it’s Frazer who gets the upper hand, a knee to the jaw sending the former Jordan Devlin crashing down.
JD McDonagh has been eliminated (4:02)
Unfortunately for Frazer, as he turns back to the ring, he’s met by a Superman Punch from Grayson Waller, unable to regain his footing and falling to the floor as well.
Nathan Frazer has been eliminated (4:08)
And with that, the field has shrunk to four: Bron Breakker, Wes Lee, Grayson Waller, and Tony D’Angelo. And it looks as though battle lines are starting to be drawn, with Breakker and Lee on one side of the ring and D’Angelo and Waller on the other. Each man looks towards the person they’re sided with, briefly nods, and immediately start targeting the person in front of them. Breaker backs Waller into a corner, while Wes Lee is able to get in some quick shots on D’Angelo, eventually managing to super kick him out of the match!
Tony D’Angelo has been eliminated (6:00)
But like a snake hidden in the grass, Grayson Waller comes from out of nowhere, ousting Wes Lee from the ring…but only one of his feet touched the ground! Waller doesn’t see this however, instead moving back to Breakker, and after a couple of minutes going at it, Waller low-blows Breakker, allowing him to shockingly eliminate him!
Bron Breakker has been eliminated (8:32)
But as Grayson Waller starts celebrating like a mad man, he fails to see Wes Lee slink back into the ring, coming up behind him and tossing him out, but unlike what Grayson tried to do to him, successfully!
Wes Lee eliminates Grayson Waller and outlasts the field to earn a guaranteed main roster contract (8:56)


Match #2: Demon Finn Balor vs. Edge - Hell in a Cell
Note: Everything up to and including Elimination Chamber 2023 stays the same with all the Judgment Day shenanigans and Edge’s hiatuses.
Raw (2/20/23): Edge vs. Austin Theory
In a proper battle of old school vs. new school, Theory and Edge put on a strong showing. Theory wisely targets the well-known weak neck of Edge, but Edge has too much pride to be put down by a kid, mounting comeback after comeback. But unfortunately, after a desperate DDT from the Rated-R Superstar has Edge leaning against the ropes and the ref checking on Theory, Finn Balor comes seemingly from out of nowhere, leveling Edge with a chair shot to the throat! Edge bounces back from the collision, rising to his feet but gasping for breath, and from there, Theory hits the A-Town Down. But rather than go for the pin, he locks in the STF, Edge already being knocked out at this point but still giving Austin the technical submission victory. After the match, Balor rushes the ring, hitting Edge with two Coup de Graces as an insult to injury (or injury to injury, I guess).

Over the coming weeks however, Edge refuses to sit back and just watch Judgment Day continue wreaking havoc. He comes out to brawl with them at any opportunity possible, specifically targeting Balor. Eventually, Finn gets sick of it, demanding a match with Edge at Mania that the Rated-R Superstar is only too happy to accept. But before that war of violence can happen, we need a war of words…

Raw (3/20/23): Edge Face-To-Face w/ Finn Balor
Once both men are in the ring, Edge speaks his mind first:
E: “You know, Finn? I used to have a great deal of respect for you. I saw your work in Japan, and it was impressive. I was impressed by you becoming the first ever Universal Champion. And I was so impressed by you back in NXT in 2021 that I nearly opted to challenge for the NXT Title instead of the Universal Belt just so I could face YOU. But now what have you become? “Ex-con Dom’s” lackey? You’ve accomplished so much in your time in the business, and yet you’re cool with being the most irrelevant member of a stable pretending to be children going through an emo phase?
“And look, when you demanded that match at WrestleMania a couple of weeks ago, two thoughts came to mind: I’ll absolutely accept so I can put you down for good… but are you actually ready Finn? I told AJ Styles this last year: I didn’t want the tag team bitch to Omos version of him…I wanted bulldog AJ. And the same applies to you: I don’t want Judgment Day, Prison Mike Finn Balor. I don’t want smiley, always happy Finn Balor. Hell, I don’t even want the Prince…I demand the Demon King!
The crowd roars in response, and Finn initially looks surprised at the statement. But then his lips curl a bit, his eyes going cold, and when he speaks into the mic, only one message comes across as a response:
FB: “Be careful what you wish for.”
And with that, Balor exits the ring, staring down Edge who returns an adrenaline-filled stare right back.

Edge makes his way to the ring first, except this isn’t the Rated R-Superstar we all know and love…it’s Brood Edge! With Gangrel even appearing at his side, Edge appears in an entrance first cloaked by darkness, then a blood red throughout the stadium. However, after he gets into the ring, the sound of a heartbeat sends shivers down everyone’s spine. But there’s no one coming down the ramp… where’s Balor? This question is soon answered when something begins happening in the ring…DEMON BALOR IS CLAWING HIS WAY UP FROM UNDERNEATH THE RING! The demon’s body paint would be purple this go around to represent Judgment Day, and though Edge shows no fear towards this remarkable entrance, it’s apparent to the fans and commentary that this is about to be crazy.
And the two tear the house down as expected. Despite the way its last match ended back at Extreme Rules of 2021, the Demon looks just as powerful as it ever has. Unfortunately, it’s unable to vanquish its opponent as quickly as it did Bobby Lashley at WrestleMania 35, as Edge is fully willing to unleash his sadistic side as well. But after a brutal affair, only one entity can walk out victorious…AND IT’S BALOR! After a 1916 onto a pile of chairs, the Demon sets Edge up on a table, scaling halfway up the cage wall to add some extra power into its Coup de Grace to finally put away Edge.

Match #3: John Cena vs. Austin Theory

In the weeks leading up to Elimination Chamber, Theory would begin to incorporate mannerisms and moves extremely similar, if not identical, to those of a certain Attitude Adjuster. He would use the diving shoulder tackles in one encounter, the Five Knuckle Shuffle in another, he’d even wear wristbands reminiscent to those of Cena. But things come to a boiling point at:

Elimination Chamber: Men’s Elimination Chamber Match For The US Title
Following the elimination of Seth Rollins thanks to Logan Paul screwing him over, the match would come down to Austin Theory and Montez Ford. Theory has the opportunity to hit an A-Town Down, but something comes over him. He instead drags Ford over to the corner, lifting him in position for the fireman’s carry as he climbs to the top turnbuckle. He then looks straight into the camera, waving his hand in front of his face and the signature “You can’t see me!” line. However, this comes back to bite him, as when Theory tries to hit him with an Attitude Adjustment, Montez lands on his feet, running back to the corner, leaping up the turnbuckle, and hitting Theory with a vertical suplex! But Montez isn’t done there, moving back to the turnbuckle, climbing to the top of a pod, and nailing his beautiful Frog Splash on Theory to get the pin and win the United States Championship!

Unfortunately for Theory, things wouldn’t get much better for him, as though he manages to defeat Edge on the following Raw thanks to interference from Balor, he still becomes the victim of John Cena tearing into him in Boston. And in this universe, Cena gets even more ammunition to work with, pointing out how Theory is just trying to copy every single thing he does and that he’s not a young John Cena: he’s just a young Damien Mizdow! But despite this, Theory still gets what he wanted: a match against the leader of the Cenation at Mania, where with the title no longer in his possession and constant disrespect he’s faced, he has nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Despite only having competed in a handful of matches since 2020, Cena looks to be in great in-ring shape for this match with Austin Theory, getting off to a hot start and nearly hitting an Attitude Adjustment within the first minute. Theory manages to escape however, and he’s able to showcase some of his offense in the middle stages of the match, hitting dropkicks and even a moonsault at one point to stick it to Cena that he’s the better athlete. While it may be true, Cena’s resiliency is what got him so far in WWE, and it looks to be the case once more as he begins mounting a comeback at the end, hitting his signature shoulder tackle-back body drop-five knuckle shuffle sequence. However, Theory once again avoids the AA, and in a surprise twist, he hits it instead! Though Cena kicks out, Theory now has the momentum and adrenaline on his side, and shortly thereafter, he hits Cena with an A-Town Down, getting the rather quick win and a huge milestone for his young career to shock the fans in attendance.
Austin Theory def. John Cena via pinfall (10:42)


Match #4: Trish Stratus and Lita vs. Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler
After weeks of the MMA-experienced duo of Rousey and Baszler making the Smackdown women’s division’s lives miserable, including her own, Shotzi’s finally had enough. In a post-match interview following a singles loss to Shayna Baszler and beat-down post-match, Blackheart says that she knows the perfect person to help her out and make Ronda and Shayna finally get their comeuppance.
SmackDown (2/17/23):
Shotzi would come out, seemingly ready to make her announcement, but it’s immediately interrupted by Rousey and Baszler. Baszler points out how they’ve destroyed everyone back there, from Natalya to Raquel Rodriguez to Tegan Nox. Whoever Shotzi brings out, they’re not worried about in the slightest. And since this partner isn’t even there to protect Shotzi, why can’t they just attack her again right now? They look primed to do just that, but before they can pounce…
OUT COMES LITA! An absolute legend from the Ruthless Aggression Era, she’s now made her return back to WWE after a few one-off matches in the last couple of years, standing side-by-side with Shotzi, a competitor she met back when Tough Enough was a thing in 2015. Baszler initially still looks willing to fight, but Ronda holds her back, saying it’s not worth it tonight.
Unfortunately for Shotzi, just a few weeks later, she would be written off with a broken arm following another disgusting attack by Rousey and Baszler backstage. Lita would be extremely disappointed, as she really wanted to team with someone who clearly looked to her as a role model for many years. But she’ll fight hard on Shotzi’s behalf, and she might know of a replacement…
SmackDown (3/31/23):
On the last SmackDown before WrestleMania, we have a contract signing. Rousey and Baszler are waiting impatiently for Lita to show up: they want to sign the contract so they can kick her ass two-on-one at WrestleMania and get the easiest paycheck of their life. Adam Pearce points out how she might have a partner, which the MMA duo laugh at: they’ve destroyed everyone, there’s no one left. Well, on cue, Lita shows up, and apologizes for the delay, but she had to help a certain friend get here in time for the show…from Canada…
IT’S TRISH STRATUS! Two icons from the early 2000s are now reunited, and they march to the ring, getting into a brawl with Rousey and Baszler. They ultimately stand tall, adding an extra emphasis to the “victory” with a Chick Kick by Stratus on Rousey, before Trish then sets her up on a table and allows Lita to hit the signature moonsault on Ronda through the wood.

Despite the chemistry exhibited for months by Ronda and Shayna compared to Trish and Lita not being full-timers in more than a decade, it would feel reasonable to assume that the MMA duo could make quick work of the Hall of Famers. However, Trish and Lita show no signs of backing down so easily, managing to keep things well within reach despite the powerful technical-based offense from their opponents. And in somewhat of a surprising twist, after Stratus tags out to Lita but with Baszler not seeing, Lita hits her signature Moonsault before going for an immediate cover to get the 1-2-3 in perhaps the final WrestleMania match of two legendary women’s competitors’ careers.
Trish Stratus and Lita def. Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler via pinfall (11:33)

Match #5: Pat McAfee vs. The Miz
After yet another beatdown on an episode of Raw, with this having happened to him by the likes of Seth Rollins, Rick Boogs, and now even a newly solo Chad Gable, Mike Mizanin has had enough. He figures that if a prick like Kevin Owens got to have a talk show at last year’s WrestleMania, it’s only fair he gets to have one as well. And he has a special guest in mind already…however, before he can reveal it (if he was even going to at all), Kevin Owens comes out, giving Miz the gift of a Stunner for that comment about him being a prick.
Over the remaining shows until WrestleMania, Miz hypes up his guest as having been a former football player, a man known all over the United States, a true entertainer….
With the Miz situated in the ring and the Miz TV set prepared, he reveals his guest to be…Baron Corbin! Of course, the fans boo, having expected someone different, but Miz ignores this, asking Corbin a series of questions. However, before he can ask the last one, he finally snaps at the either annoyance or pure indifference from the crowd, telling them that Pat McAfee isn’t here. He declined the initial request, and he’s too much of a coward to get back in the ring with someone like Corbin…
WELL OUT COMES MCAFEE! Like at SummerSlam, he’s got his own choir serenading him to the ring, and as soon as he gets in the ring, Corbin tries to step up to him. In response, McAfee obliterates him with a punch, knocking him flat on his back and rolling out of the ring. Pat then sits down in a chair, asking Miz how he’s doing. In shock at what transpired, Miz hesitates, but just before he can answer, McAfee pulls a Rock and says “IT DOESN’T MATTER HOW YOU FEEL!
Miz is now completely flustered, but he tries to save the segment and his own credibility by telling McAfee he bet he won’t fight him right here, right now because he cares too much about himself. In response, McAfee rips off his suit to reveal his normal match attire, and then on the mic, he calls for a ref! Miz tries to say it was a joke, but upon the ref entering the ring, the bell rings, and McAfee goes right after Miz. Miz is unable to gain any sense of momentum, just getting completely annihilated and eventually having his skull punted en route to being pinned.
Pat McAfee def. The Miz via pinfall (1:49)

Match #6: Johnny Gargano vs. Chad Gable vs. Cedric Alexander vs. Bronson Reed vs. Dexter Lumis vs. Montez Ford (c) - Ladder Match For The United States Championship
Monday Night Raw (2/20/23):
Following his successful US Title win at Elimination Chamber, Montez Ford has a celebration with Dawkins backstage, which unfortunately is interrupted by the colossus known as Bronson Reed. This leads to a brawl, with other people at the party like Gargano, Lumis, and Cedric Alexander deciding to join in as well for the hell of it.
Over the coming weeks, Bronson Reed would still look to target Montez Ford and the US Title, but he wouldn’t be alone, as guys like Gargano and Gable want to hold main roster singles gold as well. Eventually, Adam Pearce just gets sick of all the constant bickering and brawls, so he proposes a ladder match for the belt, if Montez is up for it. Ford shows no hesitancy on accepting, saying he wants to make a splash at the Grandest Stage of them All, and successfully defending his championship in a ladder match can prove he belongs. With that, there would also be a fatal five-way match between the other five men vying for the belt on the go-home Raw to Mania, just to see who would pick up some steam heading into the PPV, with Cedric Alexander proving himself as being truly worthy of being in the ladder match with the victory there.

This match would be pure carnage and pure excitement from the moment the match starts to when it finishes. Every man involved would get a memorable moment: Gable would hit a moonsault from the top rope onto a mass of bodies outside the ring. Cedric would hit three different people with Lumbar Checks in the span of about twenty seconds. Bronson Reed would crush Cedric with a TSUNAMI off the top of a ladder. Lumis would choke out Gable at the top of a ladder before sending him crashing onto a ladder bridge on the outside. Gargano and Lumis team up for a makeshift DIY Superkick/Knee combo on Bronson. Montez would hit a Frog Splash off the top of a ladder onto Gargano through a different ladder bridge than the one involving Lumis and Gable. But in the end, only one man can reach it, and with the two men at the top of the ladder at the end being Montez Ford and Johnny Gargano, the victor is…MONTEZ FORD!
Montez Ford retains the United States Championship (16:10)

Match #7: Rhea Ripley vs. Charlotte Flair (c) - Smackdown Women’s Championship
The build to this match stays pretty much the same as in real life, with Rhea looking to avenge her previous loss to Charlotte at WrestleMania 36 three years ago. However, Charlotte in this universe also points out how it wasn’t just then that Rhea couldn’t beat her: it was in 2021 as well, when Charlotte eventually beat her for the Raw Women’s Championship. She acknowledges Ripley as being a great talent, but she’s just no match for the Queen.
In a match of beautiful storytelling, Rhea Ripley learns from her past mistakes against Charlotte Flair. She’s not only careful about avoiding as many attacks to her legs as possible, but she uses the same strategy against Charlotte, utilizing moves like chop blocks to weaken the lower body of the Queen. Charlotte is able to keep herself alive despite this onslaught for most of the match, but after a Riptide, Rhea sees her chance to close things full-circle. She locks on Charlotte’s own Figure Eight Leg Lock, and though Flair desperately tries to reach the bottom rope or break the hold, after quite a long time trapped in the submission hold, she’s forced to tap, ushering in the era of the Nightmare in the women’s division.
Rhea Ripley def. Charlotte Flair via submission to win the SmackDown Women’s Championship (14:33)

Match #8: Seth Rollins vs. Logan Paul
In this universe, rather than having Logan Paul eliminate Seth Rollins, it would actually be the opposite, with Rollins eliminating Logan en route to ultimately falling up short himself. Logan becomes slightly obsessed with Rollins and somehow even more egotistical, calling Rollins out every day on various social media platforms, demanding a match against him to prove who’s better. Rollins keeps denying these increasingly crazed demands however, telling Logan he has better things to do than fight a piece of shit human who has no right to call themselves a wrestler after just a year in the business.
However, after Logan Paul screws him out of possibly winning the US Title at Elimination Chamber, Seth has to change his tune. He tells Logan he’ll fight him…if he finally faces him man-to-man for once. Logan obliges, coming to Raw in Boston, and while this inevitably leads to a brawl, it’s Paul who stands tall, knocking out Seth with a vicious right. Not bad for a “fake” wrestler, huh? Rollins manages to get his comeuppance a couple weeks later, stomping Logan’s face into the canvas, and the match is set for Mania.

In a highly entertaining match showcasing each man’s ridiculous and natural talent for the art of wrestling, Seth and Logan test each other’s limits. From Buckshot Lariats and frog splashes by Logan to Falcon Arrows and Superkicks by Seth, each man breaks out a plethora of exciting moves, but in the end, at a show called WrestleMania, it’s the true wrestler who gets the job done, stomping Logan’s head into the mat for the second time of the contest.
Seth Rollins def. Logan Paul via pinfall (15:30)

Match #9: Cody Rhodes vs. Roman Reigns (c) - Undisputed WWE Universal Championship
Royal Rumble (1/28/23): Men’s Royal Rumble Match
As in real life, Cody Rhodes makes his triumphant return in the Rumble match, receiving a thunderous reaction. In this universe however, he enters at the #15 spot, a respectable entry number but still plenty of work to be done. He faces numerous challenges, with the Usos, Solo Sikoa, and Sami Zayn all entering the match to try and wreak havoc on the twenty six other men looking to eventually take down their Tribal Chief. And of course, the tension established between him and the Visionary Seth Rollins from their three previous encounters in 2022 leads to some intense sequences throughout. Ultimately, both him and Rollins manage to reach the final three, alongside the Honorary Uce Sami Zayn. Cody and Rollins would fight on the apron, and while Seth manages to superkick Rhodes, he ends up getting nailed by a Helluva Kick, falling to the floor! Unfortunately for Sami however, the rest of his evening proves to be miserable, as Cody manages to successfully eliminate him, and then later on, gets obliterated by the Bloodline (minus Jey) following a chair shot on Roman heard around the world.
Monday Night Raw (1/30/23):
Kicking off the show, Cody centers his promo around the idea of family. He talks about his own family, about the legacy paved by Dusty and Dustin for him to get here. But then he turns his attention towards the Bloodline. He respects the Samoan Dynasty, from names like the Wild Samoans whom his father worked against, to guys like the Usos today. However, Cody believes in destiny. It was destiny that brought him back to WWE, and to vanquish the Tribal Chief at WrestleMania for the gold.
Monday Night Raw (2/6/23):
Paul Heyman appears on behalf of Roman Reigns, tearing into Cody. Rhodes keeps bringing up his family, but for what? To establish they’ve always been unable to reach the top? Because he’s not good enough to be something original? Because he never made his father proud and is just desperate? It’s with this last remark that Cody gets in Paul’s face, looking ready to throw a punch, but able to regain his composure, simply telling Paul that saying that was a mistake.
Monday Night Raw (2/13/23):
With Cody not having had a singles match since his return, he requests one for this Raw, and Montez Ford accepts, looking to impress heading into the US Title Elimination Chamber match on Saturday. Unfortunately for Montez, Cody picks up the win, but a hard-fought one from both parties. Unfortunately for Rhodes, he would be blindsided by Solo Sikoa and Jimmy Uso after the match! Jimmy nails him with a Superkick, and Sikoa hits the Samoan Spike, leaving the American Nightmare in a heap.
Friday Night SmackDown (2/17/23):
There would be a contract signing between Reigns and Zayn, which of course results in a brawl. Despite neither Uso being in attendance, Reigns has Sikoa by his side, and with KO still likely on the shelf due to the gruesome beating at Royal Rumble, it looks like Sami will fall victim to the numbers game…UNTIL OUT COMES CODY! He immediately goes after Solo, dragging him out to the outside and brawling with him, allowing Sami to hit Roman with a Blue Thunder Bomb through the table in the ring. Zayn and Rhodes then stare at each other: they both know what they want, and they both know what they need to do…but will their paths continue to cross…
Elimination Chamber (2/18/23): Cody Rhodes vs. Solo Sikoa
It would be with the events of Raw and SmackDown that this match between Cody and Solo is announced for the Montreal-held show, and Solo does everything he can to try and annihilate his cousin’s Mania challenger, but Rhodes is too resilient, managing to survive a Samoan Spike at a count of 2.9 before later putting away Sikoa with an avalanche Pedigree.
As for the remaining weeks leading up to the event, Sami and KO would go on to challenge the Usos for the Tag Titles at Mania, leaving Cody and Roman all alone to have the singles match at WrestleMania. Roman looks at Cody as being a quitter: he left WWE when he failed, and left the own company he created when he failed there too…it may just be time for him to go after he loses at WrestleMania 39. Meanwhile, Cody knows Roman’s mind games, but he also knows Reigns has weaknesses. He’s relied on his family for far too long, and sooner or later, too much abuse of them will come back to haunt him…

In what can only be described as an incredible match, Cody and Roman prove why they’re in the main event at the biggest PPV of the year. Reigns has even more powerful offense than usual, yet Cody matches it well. Reigns survives a Cross Rhodes, Cody survives a Spear, it’s going to take so much to keep the other man down! Reigns would instruct Jey Uso and Jey only to accompany Roman to the ring, and it looks as though Roman is going to rely on his interference in yet another match…but Jey looks hesitant! Roman is confused, demanding Jey do what’s necessary, but after shoving Jey, Jey shoves Roman right back! Reigns is left stunned as the Uso walks up the ramp, and shortly thereafter, Reigns is hit with not one, not two, but three consecutive Cross Rhodes, giving the American Nightmare what he was destined to do.

Cody Rhodes def. Roman Reigns via pinfall to win the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship (30:45)

■ Balance Adjustments
[Dice Class UP Improvement]
「We’ve concluded that the advantage of Class UP is too low compared to the effort you need. From now, all stats affected from Class UP will benefit greater and attack speed will increase as well.」
[Dice Balance Adjustments]
※ Merging and Class UP efficiency will increase based on the basic stat increase.
🎲 White Tiger Dice
「Due to Teleportation's cooldown, there were often cases where the battle ended before the skill was retriggered. The cooldown for Teleportation has been adjusted to allow more frequent attacks. 」
- Cooldown (1 → 0.5)

🎲 Black Tortoise Dice
「With the previous patch, the value of the barrier increased. However, the activation condition is still hard to meet, leaving only few allies on the board to protect via skill activation. To improve the issue, the activation condition is adjusted to allow for faster triggering.」
- Skill Trigger (15 → 12)

🎲 Vermilion Bird Dice
「Upon resurrection, the Dice provides a buff to all allies while dealing powerful damage to all nearby enemies. However, there were many situations where Vermilion Bird Dice was easily destroyed due to the enemy's damage, making it impossible to resurrect. Hence, the required survival time for resurrection has been reduced, making it easier to resurrect.」
- Cooldown (3 → 2.5)
🎲 Solar Dice
「Solar Dice is designed to show a strong performance during activation. However, the process of activation and upgrades via merging is currently too difficult. Therefore, the additional splash damage is increased to make the Dice more effective in battles.」
- [3 Solars] Splash Damage (30% → 50%)
- [5 Solars] Splash Damage (50% → 80%)
🎲 Time Dice
「Time Dice was not included in the previous update's balance adjustments for adjusting attack speed-related Dice. Hence, it is currently showing a very strong presence in the meta.

- Basic Attack Value (90 → 40)

- Attack Speed UP/Down (10% → 7%)
- Attack Speed UP/Down per Dots (1% → 2%)

- Basic HP (1200 → 1100)
- Basic Attack Speed (0.6 → 0.8)
- Skill Duration per Dots (0.3 → 0.5)
🎲 Invincible Dice
「Invincible Dice skill duration has been decreased to decrease the synergy with Shield Dice」
- Skill Duration (1→0.5)
🎲 Mighty Wind Dice
「Mighty Wind Dice is a powerful Dice that can ruin the early phase of the game once it activates. Hence, the time necessary for activation will increase to let opponents counter the Dice better.」
- Cooldown (4→5)
🎲 Sniper Dice
「Sniper Dice is the only Dice that can target enemies placed in a 4-cell radius. It was designed to counter enemies that are far away but is currently able to deal powerful damage to close-up enemies once the dot count is high. Hence, the attack value of the Dice is rebalanced to equalize the usability.」
- Basic Attack Value (70→60)
🎲 Sword Dice
「Sword Dice can deal great damage to enemy Dice even with a single dot count. The attack value is decreased so that it will perform less effectively during the early phase.」

2023.03.23 02:27 Still_Performance_39 NOP Fanfic: An Introduction to Terran Zoology – Chapter 3

Credit to u/SpacePaladin15 for the NOP world.
As promised here is the intro to the animal life of our home. Thank you to those who gave examples of the types of creatures we have that would boggle the mind of any Federation scientist who came across them.
I hope you enjoy.
[First] [Previous]
Memory transcription subject: Rysel, Venlil Environmental Researcher
Date [standardised human time]: 21st August 2136
The first image of animal life on Earth any non-human has ever seen… AND IT’S A FREAKING BLOB!? No eyes, no mouth. Legs and arms? Nope! Not even a nose or tail. I had no clue where to start with this thing. How does it eat, what could it possibly eat, how does it see prey to hunt or on the other paw how does it see predators to flee!?
Trying to be subtle, I glanced around to gauge reactions to this alien being. Thankfully it seemed that I wasn’t the only one completely stumped by the photos. The Venlil that’d been doing breathing exercises earlier seemed as bemused as me, her mouth stuck open in a perpetual “What?” as she tried to guess at what it could be. Others were in the same situation, a few groups already forming to discuss their theories.
Straining my ears back as casually as possible I was able to listen in on a snippet of discussion between a duo behind me.
“It’s prey, definitely, without a doubt.”
“Does that look like it could hunt anything? It’s got no eyes! He said there would be pink dots on the eyes and I can’t see either.”
“Remember this is an alien creature. Maybe they’re very small eyes, very small pink dots we haven’t noticed?”
“Maybe it’s not a prey or predator at all!” A third voice chimed in, “It could be a floating aquatic plant and the human’s trying to trick us?”
“…What were you saying about the tiny eyes?”
Smirking in amusement at the “plant” concept I continued to look around until I reached Mr Buzzcut to my left. Much to my surprise he appeared completely unfazed by the strangeness in front of him and had already moved onto another image, though I couldn’t make out what it was from this angle. What did he know, or thought he knew, about this creature that the rest of us didn’t? Probably just chose unknown, yeah that’s most likely, he doesn’t look like the scientist type.
Looking back to my pad I took a deep breath. Ok, time to focus. Aquatic life isn’t my forte but it’s just a matter of observation and deduction. What can I see? Measurements of the creature were provided in Venlang to provide scale. This one wasn’t that big but that knowledge didn’t help much. It’s almost entirely translucent which could help it avoid detection from predators or disguise its approach from prey. Its body is round and curves into an open bottomed dome, maybe it could trap prey in the space inside it? There are tentacles spreading out from the domes opening but they’re thin and wavy so likely no good for catching prey. It also has four purplish rings within its body at the top of the dome. Purple? Yes purple, not pink so not eyes… no eyes… Speh.
Trying not to show visible signs of frustration at my inability to categorise a blob, I chanced a quick peek at the human. If he was amused, displeased or just plain indifferent to our reactions I couldn’t tell. The visor he wore hid everything. Still, I couldn’t help but feel like he was smirking beneath it. He was probably giddy that he’d managed to stump a room of experts with a single picture. Alright human, I see your game, it’s on.
Reviewing everything I could see in the picture I decided, prey. As alien as it was I couldn’t imagine how it could possibly hunt or eat anything let alone another living being. Not as satisfied with my choice as I would’ve liked, I selected the prey option next to the picture. Both the picture and the categories vanished from the screen, replaced with a “next” option. Alright a new animal, please be land based, I’m so much better at land based, yes!
The creature now displayed was eerily familiar. If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve said that I was looking at a picture of a Sulean with a pigment mutation. The animal’s short fur was brown with flecks of white across its back. It was was quadrupedal, legs ending in hooves, and a set of antlers protruded from the top of its head. The face was looking directly towards me but the pink dotted eyes were positioned on either side of it’s face, which itself extended forward, ending in a snout. No teeth were visible but this one was a simple choice; how could this not be a prey creature?
Spirits lifted by the easy win I went to make my selection… but something in the back of my head stopped me, pulling me back to the photo. This picture had to have been taken by a human right? And if the animal was looking directly at the photographer, then it would’ve seen the human. Why was it still there, why hadn’t it run away at the first sight of the predator? Was this an example of just how good humans were at hunting, that they could get so close to their prey and were so ferocious that an animal wouldn’t even attempt to flee!? Disturbed at the thought I decided to move on, making a mental note to ask the human during the next question and answer session.
The third picture proved quick to confirm as prey too, after I got over the initial shock of course. For stars sake, if you’re going to blot out all the eyes with pink dots maybe don’t include an animal that’s almost completely pink, I almost leapt out of my seat at the idea I was looking at a mass of eyes! The insect was a ball of pink and yellow fluff, a set of wings on it’s back patterned in similarly coloured stripes. Its face consisted of antennae and a pair of eyes on either side of its head. I suspected they were compound eyes but the pink dots made that impossible to discern, an unfortunate downside to the humans attempt at sensitivity.
Number four was the first to show what I’d dreaded seeing. This was a predator, no mistake. An enormous quadrupedal mass of black and white fur appeared on my pad. Its legs ending in paws equipped with lengthy razor-sharp claws. Its open mouth revealed an array of fangs that set my nerves alight. To top it all off, while obscured by pink dots, the eyes were forward facing. The unmistakable identifier of a predator, binocular vision. I couldn’t press the predator option fast enough to get the beast off my screen. The humans must be insane to allow such a thing to exist on their world! Without even considering competition, the danger it must pose in the wild on a daily basis must result in almost constant combat between the two predators. Another question to ask once this is over I suppose. Ok, calm down it’s just a picture, phew… alright, onto the next one.
As I continued through more of the images, prey, prey, AH PREDATOR!... prey, I realised something. Astonishingly, I was having fun. Despite the fear in the back of my mind of suddenly coming across the image of a fearsome predator, I was enjoying myself. For so long, all I had to do was mind numbing busy work. Annual reviews on soil quality, confirming that data from off world surveys had been received without becoming too fragmented, or being trotted out to try and identify what a pile of ash used to be before the exterminators got to it. It had all felt so, lacking. But here, right now, all that mediocrity seemed to lift from my shoulders as new and exciting life continuously appeared before my eyes.
Avians of all sizes, decorated in an array of hues from the plainest of browns to rainbows themselves, were pictured soaring through the air, perching atop trees or building nests on the sides of mountains. I chuckled, wondering if they could sing and if so, would they sound better than Milam’s screeching Krakotl alarm.
Once again, I was treated to a view into the waters of Earth. Crustaceans that scuttled along the ocean floor, their claws no doubt primed to fight off would be aggressors. Behemoths I could never have conceived, suspend in the water, likely propelled by their enormous, powerful, fins. There were more examples of the aquatic blob, though these were much grander sights. Tentacles trailed from the domed bodies, extending to several times my own height in the largest instance. One had been photographed in total darkness, revealing that it possessed bioluminescence. Its skin pulsed with a display of blue, green, and red lights that stood in stark contrast to the abyssal blackness surrounding it. I’m curious, are the Kolshian’s home oceans holding such wonders?
Insects dazzled my screen, a wonderland of fluffy, colourful arthropods contrasted against shiny armoured exoskeletons. Some in flight, their wings a blur of speed in front of the camera’s lens. Others sported pincers, horns and stingers, a bevy of offensive and defensive traits that made identifying them a captivating challenge. It’d be interesting to see if they had any evolutionary similarities to the Tilfish.
Like all that came before them, reptiles were again a feast of variety. With a wide range of colourful scales and side facing eyes, many of the creatures reminded me of the Harchen. There was even one that had eyes that were clearly facing two different directions at once! Sadly, there were several that were unpleasant to review. I almost dropped my pad at the sight of a toothy maw that bared too close a resemblance to an Arxur for my liking. It’s hide was comprised of thick scales with spines adorning its back like armour. Those few images were the quickest to categorise as predator throughout the exercise, taking time to breath through the instinctive fear response they spurred within me.
Calmed, and with who knew how many photos still to sort, I carried on. I wasn’t going to let a few pictures of predators derail this moment, no sir, not when I’m getting so much enjoyment from exploring the incredible collection of images in my paws. I honestly couldn’t remember a time doing this job that came close to how I was feeling right now. In fact, when was the last time I felt like this?
The thought sparked a distant memory from childhood. My parents and I had been visiting family in the capital. One of things we’d decided to do was visit a museum that was putting on an exhibition of animal species from across the Federation. From the moment I crossed the buildings threshold I was awestruck by the holographic displays of alien life, each one so magical in my eyes. I’d never seen anything like them before, how could I, having lived my entire life in a single part of a single planet?
Noticing how enraptured I was, my parents bought me a couple of books from the gift shop that dove into the displayed animals and dozens more in intricate detail, describing not just the creatures themselves but their environments as well. How they had adapted to better survive their homes, the types of food they ate and how they protected themselves from vicious predators of the wilds.
I read those books with a near religious repetitiveness all throughout my youth. Eventually, one became so worn down with use that its front cover fell off! I was so distraught at the idea of having to dispose of one of my favourite books. It didn’t take long for my Mother to notice the dejected child wandering the house in tears and, ever the caring and intuitive problem solver, she decided to take the pieces and fix it as a surprise to lift my mood. Using some really, really old school knowledge, she created a binding agent by heating tree bark, producing a thick tar like substance from the sap that melted off. After using the plant-based adhesive to glue the cover back to the book’s spine, leaving it ample time to dry of course, she returned it to me. To say I was ecstatic to have my beloved book returned to me in one piece would be an understatement. I probably gave my parents quite the run around as I bounced off the walls with joy… I’ve not thought about that in a long time, too long.
I suppose that’s why I got into this in the first place. Back when that passion was still my driving force. Back when the monotony of busy work hadn’t ground me down. I’d had aspirations that never materialised. There were places I’d hoped to explore but never got the chance, turned down time and again for Federation colony surveys because, “Venlil aren’t well suited for frontier exploration, being more skittish than most.”, a lot of speh! Maybe that was why the new Krakotl chief exterminator back home had riled me up so much, yet another reminder that I’d never achieve what I knew I could because of the galaxy’s bias. Well look at me now! The same skittish weakling is in the room with a sapient predator and is getting a prime look at its home worlds animal life before anyone else. What do you think of that!?
…What would they think of that? How would the rest of the Federation react to the humans and their world when they were inevitably revealed? Oh stars, how would they treat people like me who’d signed up to an exchange with the humans? We’d probably be classed as having predator disease for volunteering to deliberately learn from them!
Feeling myself beginning to spiral I took a deep breath, attempting to calm my shaken emotions to form a coherent thought from the cacophony in my head… You know what? I don’t care what they think.
The jury’s still out on the humans, they freak me out and I don’t know what to think about them, but looking through this gallery has reignited a passion I had forgotten existed. They said they’d come here to build friendships and, in those efforts, they had placed the very thing I’d always wanted into my paws. They hadn’t judged me as weak or skittish for being a Venlil when handing over images of their animal life, only adding pink dots to the pictures to calm our nerves with forward facing eyes! Stars above, this entire exercise had somehow managed to spark memories of my childhood that warmed my heart and set my tail swishing with unrestrained glee… they’d done that, whether they’d intended to or not.
Glancing up from my pad I looked at the human, still sat beside his podium. His face was as imperceptible as ever beneath the mirrored visor, as he tapped away at his own pad doing who knows what. Perhaps, there’s more to them than meets the eye.
I was still sceptical of the humans overall intentions, their ability to function alongside us as predators and their understanding of nature as a whole, but still, I felt somewhat thankful for the opportunity they had provided me.
Smiling as I returned to my pad, I opened the next image. What could it be? Another colourful avian or perhaps one of those strange reptiles that’s one long body with no arms or leg? Oh, it’s another aquatic one and it’s… it’s, a tube. A long colourless tube, floating in the sea. I rescind my thought of thanks human… and I hate your oceans.

"Bump" of previous post due to no activity, added webcam, clarified descriptions. All have been unused since last post with the exception of the monitor. If you want more information about anything, feel free to ask. The second hand items from the 12400 guy have much less fragrance compared to when they were obtained.
I got most of these parts under half a year ago, but the only benefits over my tri-core phenom ii and gtx 460 build from 2010 are way less poweheat, 2min faster mp3 encoding, and loading content seconds sooner. I'll try for modern hardware again some other time, but looking to recoup some of this massive waste of time, effort, and resources(1405.34) for my use case. pet/[email protected]/[email protected]/scent free household, and do not eat near computer area.
Asking $842.10 $800 local cash for everything, quakertown-doylestown area in bucks county. Not looking to break it up, but perhaps into two sets because there are almost enough parts for two computers.

2023.03.22 21:52 icekatze Bacterium Finders Guide

Bacterium Finders Guide

Nobody can read my tiny bumper sticker but I assure you it's there.
Hello everyone, and welcome to Katsumi Midori's guide to finding bacterium! Now, you've probably heard it before, that bacterium is hard to find and not worth the effort.
Well, I'm here to tell you that it's not hard to find. Okay, maybe it's a little hard to find... or maybe pretty hard to find sometimes. But we can make it easier!
And not worth the effort? Okay, that one's arguably true.
But if you're like me, you're not in it for the money. Well, not just in it for the money. If you've been doing this for a while, you've probably got more credits than you know what to do with. We're not out here to buy a giant mansion made out of pure platinum are we? No, we're out here to explore, to advance science, and write our names amongst the stars.
When we see a dark, icy planet with a single bacterium exobiological signal, we don't see that as a nuisance. We see that as a challenge before the whole human race. (And we're never going to lose.)
But enough preface, let's talk details.

Bacterium patches generally form on flatlands. Even if the Detailed Surface Scanner Biome Map shows it appearing everywhere, prioritize flat areas first.
Each biological sample must be taken at least 500 meters apart from the others. This makes searching on foot difficult at best.

There are four general grades of visibility for bacterium patches. The most effective method to use will depend on how visible the bacterium patches are from a distance.
High Visibility
High visibility bacterium patches have a color that is distinctly different from the surrounding landscape. They can readily be seen from the air below 100 meters. Usually found on High Metal Content worlds or worlds with many other biological signals.

Medium Visibility
Medium visibility bacterium patches have the same color as the surrounding landscape but still have a distinctly lighter or darker brightness. They're harder to see, but still visible enough to spot from the air. Found on any planet type.

Low Visibility
Low visibility bacterium patches are similar to medium visibility, but are not as distinctly different from the surrounding landscape and/or are in a landscape with patches of color that create false positives when looking from the air. Found on any planet type.

No Visibility
No visibility bacterium patches are effectively invisible from a distance. Even when directly on top of them, they may prove difficult to see without the aid of a scanner. Usually found on dark, icy worlds.

With medium to high visibility bacterium, you can generally use the same methods you would use for all your other exobiology, with a few modifications.
The Orbital Method
I recommend the orbital method for general exobiology and when bacterium is mixed in with many other exobiological signals.
The Orbital Search Pattern
Start at the first sample site, then drive your Surface Recon Vehicle away for 500 meters before searching for your second sample site. (If I'm going 20 m/s, I'll count to twenty five.)Then turn the SRV 90° to the right or left and start circling your ship.You can pick up your final sample and any other exobiological samples you need before heading back.

Using the external camera for better search results.
When it is bacterium's turn, I recommend using the external camera technique. If you move the external camera drone between 25 and 100 meters up, you'll have much better visibility than you would have in the cockpit.
If you can get used to using the external camera with the stabilizer off, that's ideal. Otherwise, you can turn the stabilizer on and move in a square search pattern. Just turn the stabilizer off briefly when you make each turn.
The Short Hop Method (aka The Osseus Hop)
If you don't have any other exobiological signals to investigate or they all require long distances between samples, like stratum or osseus, you can use the short hop method. (Provided you're comfortable making repeated landings in short order.)
Short Hop Method: one, two, three and you're done.
After finding your first sample, take off and go full throttle for a few seconds. (Depending on your top speed) Then slow down and search for the next sample site.
Using maneuvering thrusters to achieve a better viewing angle
If cockpit visibility is an issue, and it often is, try advancing slowly while searching (about 10-20 m/s) with the nose tilted down, and use your maneuvering thrusters to provide upward lift. Once you get used to this method, you can potentially grab all three samples in only a couple of minutes.

Low visibility is where things start getting tricky. If you're fond of those books where you find a little character in a sea of other little characters, or those games where you're given two nearly identical pictures and have to find the differences; then you might be okay to continue using the above methods. Otherwise, it's time to change things up a bit.
Choosing the initial search area.
It might also be helpful to aim for areas where multiple ground colors converge. It is possible that one of them will make the bacterium patches more visible than the others. What is low visibility against one background may upgrade to medium visibility against another.
You can turn the DSS biome map on and off by switching between Analysis Mode and Combat Mode as you're approaching the surface to help pick the best landing site.

Specular highlights on icy worlds. Highlight, medium light, over-contrasted darkness, and regular darkness zones.
In addition, icy worlds often have strong specular highlights on the surface. You can try flying into the light, slightly offset, or away from the light to see if different lighting conditions make the bacterium patches more visible.
But eventually, you'll come across a planet where the bacterium patches can't be seen from the air. Then it's time for something more serious business.
The Composition Scanner Sweep Method (Patent Pending)
Step 1: Make sure that your SRV and/or ship have the Comp. Scanner on an active fire group. Don't worry if you didn't equip one when you left port, they come as standard equipment.
Identifying clear search areas.
Step 2: Make your approach to the surface. If you're lucky, you might find a wide open plain, but on many icy worlds, you'll need to look for even a small open patch.
Using the Turret Camera plus the Comp. Scanner to search.
Step 3: Land in the middle and deploy your SRV. Switch to turret cam as soon as you can, then drive around and waggle your turret reticle up and down, and all around.
The Comp. Scanner registers a hit.
If you're close enough to a bacterium patch, your reticle will light up and play a "blip," sound effect when the reticle passes over it.
Once you see or hear that blip, stop immediately (back up a bit if you have to) and make sure you can pinpoint the bearing before trying to approach closer. Sometimes I will even drive slowly with my eyes closed to cut down on distractions. Just turn up the sound and listen.
Standard corkscrew search pattern.
The Corkscrew search pattern has provided the best results in my tests. Tilting the turret up and down while driving in a spiral around the ship covers a lot of ground with minimal effort.
The radar search pattern.
Optional Variation: If you're lucky enough to have a large stretch of flat ground, you can try the Radar search pattern. Drive in a straight line while spinning the turret around in circles. This is not as effective as the corkscrew method, but it is the lowest possible effort available.
Once you've found a bacterium patch and sampled it, head back to the ship and fly to a different search area. Nothing is worse than fumbling around in the dark to find a blip, only to realize that it doesn't have enough genetic diversity.
If you don't find a bacterium patch after a couple of hops, consider flying to a different biome that may have a higher density. Plains, craters, different patches of ground color, matte surfaces, glossy surfaces, etc.
I started using this method as a last resort, but after a while, I came to realize that it is surprisingly reliable.
Using the Comp. Scanner on the ship.
You can use the Comp. Scanner on your ship to search as well, but it is much more difficult to waggle the reticle across a wide area. It's usually better used to test discolored patches for false positives to avoid needless landings.

Fonticula. An exobiological group that is often found on dark, icy worlds alongside bacterium. It is usually very easy to find. It will also absolutely complicate any attempts to use the Composition Scanner Sweep method.
You can still sometimes use the composition scanner, usually from the air, by avoiding fonticula patches, but at best it will still slow you down. Which brings us to...
The Absolute Last Resort Method
In my experience, bacterium patches will sometimes grow next to large fonticula patches, at a slightly higher frequency than random chance. (But I must admit this may be sampling bias.)
  1. Find a sizable fonticula patch.
  2. Get out on foot.
  3. Run and jump around like a crazy person. (Which you arguably are at this point.)
  4. Fire off the Genetic Sample Scan Pulse constantly.
The Genetic Sampler's scan pulse is just the worst tool for finding bacterium patches due to it's pitifully short range, but sometimes the worst tool is the only tool.
Successfully completing a No Visibility bacterium scan.
But if you stick with it, you will surely find your bacterium samples. Look at that, it's a thing of beauty, isn't it?
\"Worth\" it!
Thank you for reading, and good hunting out there in the black!
