Overview

Sign-Up

  • Follow this link and navigate through my poorly made poll

Rules

  • This is, for all intents and purposes, a league race and the same rules apply. Any deliberately dangerous driving will be reviewed and punished appropriately.
  • The corner cutting in AC is very unforgiving. If you get a slow down penalty, please serve it at the earliest and safest point. There are lots of very wide parts of the track (like the Mulsanne Straight). Do NOT wait until the Ford Chicanes to serve your penalty as the track is very narrow. If you get a penalty very late on a lap, pull to the far right on the start finish straight and slow down before the start/finish line.
  • If you do not serve a slow down penalty on the lap you receive it, you will be disqualified.
  • It is the duty of the faster classes to lap cars, NOT the duty of the lapped car to pull out of the way. This being said, be considerate to faster cars overtaking.
  • Whilst not a strict necessity, Helicorsa (linked below) is a fantastic mod for being able to see cars that are in your blindspots.

2020.09.19 04:19 fcatthepanerabread A week in your favorite firearm dealer's not-so erotic life *or* FC's tale of two grandmas! 9/18/2020

Friday 9/11/2020 to Friday 9/18/2020
I won't do the play by play. It's more fun to just amalgamate the highlight reel of the week.
Emails!
Subject: Sig P226
Message: Will trade for RAS-47?
FC: Sure. What do you propose?
I have a century arms RAS47 that has 30 total rounds through it. Magpul furnishing blk on blk.
FC: Right, you told me that earlier. Shipped or picked up? What value do you put on your trade?
Meet in person I’m in Lafayette. Value 900-1000.
FC: Okay, so I'm supposed to give you asking price for what reason? I have to resell that gun, so I'm supposed to buy it from you for $900 and sell it again for $800?
I was looking for a straight trade so you’d only have to sell it for what your asking for the Sig, or more if you're good at your job. AK's are definitely a hotter demand item right now. I’d prefer if you could text me (number)
(Editors note: FC does not text. Only drug dealers do business via text message.)
FC: Let me get this right. You want a straight trade so I only have to sell it for what I'm asking for the Sig. I have to do the work of selling two guns so I can make the same money?
You can sell an AK for more then the Sig in the current market. I’m just stating how easy it is for you to break even worse case scenario.
FC: There's a lot of gun guys in the breaking even business. I'm not one of them. Plus, if it's so easy to sell an AK, why don't you sell it and bring me cash?
It’s a trade so your only selling one anyways. Plus all will sell a lot faster... I’m not a dealer I don’t have people walking in looking for guns. Whatever easy sale and flip for ya but your loss bud
FC: Selling an Sig 9mm plus selling an AK is two guns. You must have gotten that common core math. I'll tell you what. You think it will sell fast? Bring it over here and leave it with me. I'll tag it and put it out at $1200 and when it sells, I'll have a 226 ready for you.
(No response)
Subject: Sig P220 on Gunbroker
Message: your ad says $1200 with CCL. arkansas ccl is reciprical with louisiana will you honor that?
FC: Picking up in person? No. Reciprocal for carry not for anything else like NICS exemption.
are you a federal firearms dealer ?
FC: No I am not.
(Editors note: I'm a manufacturer)
if i can l can legally hold own and carry any firearm concealed on my body or in my vehicle , then the rest is just cash exchange between to citizens , i can legally have own and carry the p938 , there is nothing not legal , we cN do a orivate bill of sale photograph my dl and ccl incase soneonencommits a crime , i can have a truck full of guns all legal, i just have to do the background check again to be able to pick up at an ffl , nit requred to register or anything like that
(Editors note: I delete the message)
Subject: Glock 17 Gen 5 MOS $775
Message: Is that price for real?
FC: No, that's wrong. I'll fix it right now.
(I change it to $875 on the website)
LOL o shit he raised it another $100, sorry man that petty ass shit doesn’t bother me. Honestly it just makes u look like a fucking joke. You’re the problem with dealers, it’s hard to find glocks this month so let’s jack the price up $300 and try to rob someone that doesn’t know shit about guns. Adam Kennedy FF/PM (name of his fire department and department phone number, sent from his department email)
(I google his name and email. He's got a low serial number HK Mark 23 for sale for top dollar.)
FC: I sold 10 at the gun shows for top dollar, this is my last one. Nobody's getting stock. If you want a $625-650 gun, I've got plenty of those but Glocks are selling for top dollar and then some right now. For instance, if you had a low serial number Mark 23 with everything that nobody could get - wouldn't you want top dollar for it too?
I had a mk23 preban with original woodland operators bag, and original Wilcox attachments (well all but the IR) and I put it on the forums. I let people out bid themselves not post it for an absurd amount/hundreds above MSRP just because they are hard to find. The point is I’ve been in guns since around 2012, met some really genuine people and what sets that site apart is people seem to have a mutual respect for each other. I understand that you have a business and have to make a profit but if you can’t separate the two and not price gouge the absolute fuck out of very common items just because you feel you can. Then maybe that site isn’t the best place for you, 95% of the people on that site are individuals and when a business comes along and does that it’s a slap in the face.
FC: So, you accept that you want top dollar because your merchandise is hard to find and are willing to accept the fact that the harder something is to find - the more people are willing to pay for it. You do it, and it's okay. I do it and I'm trying to rob someone? That's called moving the goalposts where I come from. Like it or don't like it, check gunbroker and all the other dealers - everyone's getting top dollar. I just did a show last week where I was $975 on Gen 5 19's, $775 on 43X's and $700+ on all gen 3 guns. The dealer across the aisle from me had Gen 5 34's at $1000. We're in business to make money, and people are willing to pay these prices because they're so hard to find.
How do I accept that?? When I sold the mk23 I posted it for a set very fair price, people offered me more because they wanted it. And top dollar would be MSRP or close to, top dollar is NOT hundreds above MSRP. Let me ask you this, does Glock charge you more (the dealer) because they are selling a shit load of them and they are “hard to find??” Does what you pay for glocks as a FFL change as drastically as the prices you are charging based off the market?
FC: You wanted, and got as much money for your rare hard to find product as you could? That's called getting top dollar! The new ford bronco is going to sell for above MSRP. For THOUSANDS more. are you going to call Ford and complain about that? Of course not.H Hundreds above MSRP is what guns are selling for right now. If you had some for sale, are you telling me you'd sell them for hundreds less than you could? I have not gotten a wholesale gun in stock in months, I have been buying guns at retail to resell. Glock does not set prices and distributors have nothing to sell me - so your question is entirely ridiculous. Do you remember the last time around 7 or 8 years ago when Colt 6920's were $2500 and SCAR 17's were $5000? That was nowhere near MSRP and I didn't hear anyone complaining. Since you don't seem to like it at all, I suggest you leave public sector employment and try to run a business and pay the bills with no product coming in wholesale.
(Editors note: FC used to be a public servant. FC used to work in the fire department. FC knows that you can get in deep shit for sending profanity laced emails on city email account with email signature. I forward the email to his department chief with a polite message tactfully reminding him that all emails sent to a city email are preserved as public records.)
Subject: Noveske lower
Message: Would you be willing to do a one for one trade? I have a NIB Anderson lower. I’m specifically looking for one of a few specific brands of lower and Noveske happens to be one.
FC: So I'm supposed to trade you even up and sell an anderson for more money? BTW. CTD got lowers back in this morning. They're andersons and they want $199 for them but I don't think I'm going to be able to get that price.
(No response)
Phone calls!
A: Guy wants a folding bracestock. I ask him if he wants a brace or a stock. He does not know the difference. I ask him if he's building an SBR. He says he's building an SBR, specifically an SBA3. I die a little inside.
B: Guy calls looking for 100 rds of 38 special for his colt python. Drives up in his tesla and hands me a ritz calrton titanium black card. $75/100 okay? No problem. He asks if I have any more at that price. I tell him as much as he wants.
C: Endless calls for 9mm and 380 ammo.
D: Guy calls me asking for a Glock 43X. He comes in and looks. I tell him $775 as he's holding an Amex. I say I'll do better for cash. $775 out the door. He says deal. Comes back the next week with $575 cash and I look at him funny. I paid $550 for the gun retail but he owns the Chickfila 20 miles up the road and gives me a stack of be our guest chicken sandwich coupons. I begrudgingly accept.
E: Lady calls me she's headed to the range in a few hours. She needs 500 rds of 40S&W and some 380.
Me: I got it. 500 rounds of 40 - $350
1: $350?
Me: $350.
1: No, no no!
Me: Yes, yes, yes.
1: It can't be $350! That's $350! That just can't be!
Me: Welcome to 2020
1: Well the 380 ammo is cheaper right?
Me: Not really. You're looking at $65 a box.
1: No, no no!
Me: Nobody's got ammo right now and we're getting top dollar. That's the price, feel free to shop around.
She never calls me back.
F: Guy calls me asking about my Federal 115gr 9mm. Cheapest on Ammoseek is $57 a box. I don't want to be that high so I price it at $55/box. He says how much for the case. I tell him 55 times 20. He's bad at math so I tell him that's $1100 for it all. He calls me an asshole. I tell him everyone's asking me to get 9mm ammo so I'm buying it retail and marking it up. He tells me not to buy it at retail and hangs up on me.
G: The gun club president calls me. the club needs a new 5.56 upper. I ask why. Someone shot 300 blackout through the old one and destroyed it. I tell them I don't have any uppers. I have complete rifles. Cheapest is $900 for an S&W sport M&P. I can hear his jaw dropping.
There's other miscellany but you get the gist of it.
NOW here's the meat and potatoes you've wanted! The tale of the gun show!
Friday 9/11/2020
I take inventory. I'm down to about 350 guns in stock and I pack as much as I can and get it ready for the show. I've got some Sigs left, a handful of Glock and a mishmash of everything else. I head to bed early knowing full well the next show will be a good one. I bought a bunch of Glock 43X's retail.
Saturday 9/12/2020
I pull chocks at 615AM. This show is about an hour down the road from my house, the last time I was there I sold nothing all weekend, broke my oakleys and vowed never to return.
This time is gonna be different, I said to myself.
At 7AM I walk in and I start loading into the show. It's a small venue in the middle of MAGA country. Everyone wearing red hats and trump train shirts.
In a few hours the doors will open and we are off to the races. I will do hour blocks instead of my previous play by play for simplicity.
9AM: Slow start, the show is spread out across TWO buildings so they route people into the other side and it takes them about 30 minutes to make their way into the big room. First sale of the day is my last Sig 365. For $700. It takes an hour and a half to get his background check back.
10AM: Guy points at an FNS 40C and wants a deal. I make him a deal at $525 cash out the door. He says he'll come back and think about it a bit.
I sell a shield for $500.
I sell a Glock 43X for $775.
I sell a Glock 43 for $700.
For some reason everyone is calling me Daniel. It takes me an hour to realize it's because I'm wearing a gray Daniel Defense polo.
11AM: FNS40 guy is back. He says it's a deal. I hand him a clipboard. he hands me an already filled out 4473 like another dealer rejected his sale. It's folded over on the long side and I tell him to fill out my form in front of me.
10 minutes later he hands me the pre filled out folded form thinking that I'm stupid.
You gotta be shitting me. I park his ass in a chair hand him a pen and tell him to start writing.
He fills it out. I enter in his background check and it does not come back right away. He gets antsy.
12PM: FNS 40 guy wants his money back. I refund it and keep $100 for me. I grab my tablet and someone has swiped right on my bumble. We begin chatting and I ask her if she wants to go to dinner. She's a little older, in her 40's and works for a bank. What the hell, why not.
Someone asks me what it takes to suppress his beretta 92. I tell him he needs a threaded barrel. They run $250. Someone overhears me and brings by his S&W 5906 and expects me to get a threaded barrel for $250.
Guy asks me to bring the threaded barrel tomorrow. I say sure.
1PM: Lady comes by and asks me if I have any 5.7's. She's on the phone reading down my inventory. I ask her if the gun is for her or her friend. She says for her. I show her the 5.7 on the table and roll my eyes a bit.
2PM: 5.7 lady comes by with her butch lesbian lover. She tells me its a deal and I hand her the clipboard. She fills everything out with lots of errors. I get her background check in and I tell her $1375
Her jaw drops. She was looking at the FNS 9mm for $575 next to it and didn't think that 5.7 pistols were $1375. She coughs reeking of weed. I void the sale.
Guy walks up asking me for 70% silencers. I just laugh.
3PM: Another guy comes over asking me if I got a 5.7. I tell him yes. He says he's got $1000 right now for a 5.7. I tell him I'll take $1000 as a down payment. He laughs and is adamant that I take this $1000 for a 5.7 tagged at $1375.
I ask him if he's got cash and all his ID and everything. He's on the phone it's actually for a friend of his. I ask him if his friend can get here before the show closes at 5. His friend has no CWL so his wife has to buy it but he's going to pay for it.
This guy is barking up the wrong tree. I go back and help someone else. He's looking at a Springfield XD I've brought and asks me if I'm making any deals. I tell him we're not doing a lot of discounting at the show. He shrugs and says he tried.
Another guy asks me for a Glock 43X. I walk him over to the stack and show him the tag at $775. He scoffs at me and walks away.
4PM: Show starts slowing down. I write up a Sig P238 Tribal and a P938 BRG for some customers at $700 each. I write up a S&W M&P15 sport for $900 as my last sale of the day. The lady was super nice and understanding when I pointed out the errors on her 4473.
5PM: Time to go home! I dump off some transfers to another dealer and hit the road. It's an hour to get back home.
6PM: I take a shower, shave and get to the restaurant for dinner.
7PM: I'm at the restaurant waiting at the table and I discover that the woman that said she was in her 40's is actually a 58 year old grandma of 2. Someone shoot me. She says she's not that hungry and proceeds to order soup, salad, a martini, an espresso and dessert. She's ordered $65 in F&B to my $35 steak. This was a complete waste of an evening.
My depression worsens and not even a bowl of mint chocolate chip can break me out of this funk. My will to live is eroding by the minute. I fall asleep at midnight and set my alarm for 747AM. I make a mental note to move up my therapist.
Sunday August 16th
747AM. Wake up, take a swig of orange juice and run down to the deli and grab a sandwich and get down to the show. I grab a threaded barrel for a Beretta 92 on my way down. Note: The guy never shows up for that barre.
10AM: Get to the show and uncover my tables and get cranking. It's a slow start to the day. My first sale is a Springfield XD. The show goes on and I write up an FNS for someone. The customer writes the check out payable to HK NO COMPROMISE.
I look at them confused.
FC: Why is this check made out to HK?
1: That's what it says on your shirt, HK NO COMPROMISE - that's the name of your company, right?
FC: sigh
11AM: Guy wants a can without a tax stamp. 5
12PM: Someone walks over. Points at my stack of silencers
1: I can't pick one of those up here!
FC: You got two arms don't you?
1: I mean I can't buy one here!
FC: If you got money you can buy one!
1: You're a real smartass you know that!
FC: Beats being a dumbass!
The peanut gallery laughs at our exchange.
1PM: Guy wants to buy a Walther P22. Fills out the front sheet of the 4473. Satisfied with his answer, he turns the page along the perforation, rips it off and proudly hands the top sheet to me.
I die a little bit inside.
2PM: 7 different husband/wife combos ask me for shield EZ pistols. I write up my last M&P 15 sport I brought to the show for $900. It's a good day! I debated bringing another but I figured selling two for the weekend would be plenty.
3PM: The lady that bought that S&W M&P15 yesterday? She wants another one. I have three left on the shelf. I take her money and tell her I'll meet her at the show next week and she says no problem and does all her paperwork. u/throwawayfire343 's coronavirus infected ass shows up and needles me on a gun.
1: How much do you want for this $150 gun?
FC: About 350
1: really
FC: Gimme $200 and fill the goddamn form right
1: deal!
I take his money and wrap up a few other folks and get ready to pack up and head home. He does the form right much to my chagrin.
4PM: Show is closed. I start packing up. I snag 500 rds of 9mm off the dealer across the show. He started with a full pallet. Most of it is gone. Price? $500/thousand. I am packed up and on the road in a little under an hour.
5PM: Homeward bound........I wish I was........HOMEWARD BOUND..............
I hit the truck stop for some diesel and a cold fountain drink.
630PM: I get back to my desk and dump off a fucking STACK of 4473's. I make a bank drop for the cash and I unload and head back home. I'm starving, I go grocery shopping and grab some comestibles. I cook myself dinner and head home.
Monday September 14th
10AM: My back is out and my depression is worse than ever. I don't know what hurts more, my back or my brain. I head in and get my 4473's worked on from the show.
11AM: Guy asks me to get some 9mm ammo for him held until after work. No problem. He says he'll be here at 445 after he gets out off at 430. He works around the corner.
12PM: Lunchtime. It's Chicken Bacon Ranch day at the market. I'm starving. I grab my keys and get ready to leave when I get a call from a lady from the gun club. She wants one of my last Sig 938's. I tell her to come by, I'll delay lunch for her.
1PM: Laura shows up and spends 45 minutes with me trying to decide on which 938 she wants. She has no intention of shooting this gun she just wants one in case antifa shows up. She leaves and says she will come back in 45 minutes. Great, I can go to lunch now.
2PM: It try to go to lunch. I am not successful. Laura calls me asking me more questions and tells me she has another friend wanting the same gun. I tell her I will put my lunch on hold and she can come on by.
She and her friend debate Sig 938's for a while and each of them buy a gun. I got a twofer! Woo! This calls for a celebration called lunch.
3PM: I get a call from a semi regular. This guy buys a gun or two a year. He's getting his concealed license and does not want the government to know he's buying guns. So he's sending his wife in to do the 4473 for his birthday present, a Wilson CQB 1911 they've purchased off gunbroker. I tell him great, send her over and I'll get her paperwork done. I get ready to go to lunch. The phone rings, Laura and her friend want more of my time. Fine. I will put my lunch on hold. Come on over.
4PM: Laura and her friend come over and Laura suggests that I give each of them a few Sig 938 7 rd pinky extension mags for free since they just bought two guns. I look at them in great pain.
Women. They make the highs higher and the lows more frequent. I'm sorta in a woman hating mood after this week but I don't want to take it out on them. I explain politely that NOBODY is getting free goods right now. if you want mags, I have three left. They spent 25 minutes arguing with me and then they decide to buy all three mags. Great. Terrific. I'm going to lunch now. Your business is appreciated now GTFO. The guy that wanted me to reserve 9mm ammo for him? Yeah he no showed.
5PM: Beef jerky lunch time. I get my keys and get ready to walk out the door. The wife of Wilson Combat buyer is running errands and can be over here. Sure, come on down. I'll be here. She does all her paperwork and we talk for 2 hours about how autistic you all say I am and how not autistic she says I am. Nice lady. She brought me gummy bears. I tell her I am clearly on the spectrum because I behave and think exactly like her autistic son. She fails to believe me.
7PM: I can finally go have lunch! I go to the Olive Garden for lunch.
815PM: I get home from the OG. This is not going well. My colon does not like the pasta and breadsticks. I spend the next hour and a half making three trips to the throne. This fucking week. And it's only sunday. God damn.
I take a tylenol PM and sleep it off.
Tuesday September 15th
10AM: I get in and start catching up on vendor calls and paperwork.
11AM: UPS rolls in with a wilson and some piece of shit suppressor from some company. I call Lisa and tell her that the package is here and she can pick it up anytime. She says she will be right over.
12PM: Lisa gets her gun and thanks me with some things she got at walgreens. Red hots, and pens. I laugh. I tell her it's fine. She's confused. Her autistic son always liked Red Hots and pens.
1PM: I swing over to the deli and it's Monday. They have hot browns today. I love a hot brown. I grab one and check in on facebook telling the world of my discovery. So many great job poopin memes and comments ensue.
2PM: I call the guy who's got the el cheapo 556 can. He's pissed. That can was supposed to be sent to another dealer across town. I tell him his options.
A: I can do his form 4 and charge him my hourly.
B: I can ship it back to the vendor and charge him my hourly.
C: I can ship it to the dealer across town and charge him my hourly.
He's PISSED and tells me to do the forms for him. I tell him email me all the info and I'll get it done. I get an email in GMAIL CONFIDENTIAL MODE.
What's CONFIDENTIAL MODE? It's a self destructing email you can't reply to, forward or cut and paste from - which makes this useless since I have to cut and paste all the info he's given me. I tell him I need the data in a different format. He yells at me about PII and stuff and I offer to do the form 4 in front of him. He relents and emails me what I need. It's missing a birthday. No biggie. I email him a draft and he says it looks lfine.
3PM: The guy comes by and he's pissed at the vendor and takes it out on me. I tell him if he does not want to do the forms from me, I can send it to the dealer across town. He's mad as hell and I've discounted my rate to $100 as a goodwill gesture.
1: You're charging me $100?
FC: Yes
1: But you're not doing anything.
FC: Here's the checklist.
1: The other place did my photos, fingerprints and everything and charged me $100.
FC: Great. I'm not spending $8000 on a fingerprint scanner to make it back $100 at a time.
1: So you're not doing anything.
FC: I did these forms correctly as you asked.
1: But you didn't even do my fingerprints! Or my passport photos! What the hell am I paying you for?
FC: Why'd they send the item here/
1: Hell if I know! You should call them and find out!
FC: You want me to call them?
1: Well you dealers have a special phone number and email. They won't answer my calls or my emails.
FC: What makes you think they're going to answer mine?
1: You're a dealer! You have a special back office phone number to reach them that I don't have, right?
FC: Are you kidding me?
1: No! You all have that special communication system that the public has no access to!
FC: Gimme your $100 and get these forms reviewed, I've got another customer to help in a bit.
1: You mean I gotta mail it out too! The other place did that for me!
FC: You want me to mail it? I'll mail it. Get the prints done, get the photos taken and get the form filled out and I'll mail it.
1: The other place answered all the questions for me!
FC: I. DON'T. CARE.
1: I am really upset about all this you're charging me the same money and you're doing no work!
FC: You want this can?
1: Yeah
FC: Then follow my instructions.
He pulls out three credit cards with damaged magnetic stripes that won't work. I manually key the card and I'm now working for $96.50 dealing with the biggest pain in the ass I've seen since operation machinegun salvage in 2019.
4PM: I have to go to fedex to drop off today's orders. 1000 rds of 22 leave the building for $189.48. A bunch of mags to the west coast and a Sig P220 are leaving.
5PM: Make it to Fedex where I say hi to Cathy and the gang. I swing by the market on the way home and grab some shredded romaine and a thin cut top sirloin.
545PM: Now I told you this story was a tale of TWO grandmas. Here's the second. I get a call from my attorney buddy Eddie, my partner at the consulting company. He got a call from a lady needing help with some ATF Forms. He knew it wasn't his area of expertise and wanted to know if I could do it. I said send the details my way. He tells me it's an older lady and to expect an email. Moments later I get an email from him.
Subject: Forms for Karen Witherspoon
Message: Will, attached is ATF correspondence from ATF to Karen, I think you can fix this. Thanks!
I look at the attachment.
NOTICE OF TAKING DEPOSITION DUCES TECUM - State of Louisiana vs Billy Bob Ray Thibodeaux
FC: Eddie, I got your deposition notice not the ATF forms
Eddie: Whoops
FC: If that's the worst thing that happens this week it's not a bad week.
Eddie: She knows you're charging her I didn't give her a price.
FC: Lemme look at it and see what we got.
6PM: I call Karen and ask her some details. Her husband was a former licensee/SOT and left a machinegun behind when he died. She did ATF Form 5 and got some errors and needs help fixing it. Just as I'm on the phone with her Eddie emails me the packet.
It's bad and riddled with errors. Out of 20 fields that all need to be filled out correctly, 12 are wrong. And not a little wrong. A LOT wrong.
I won't get into it here but I might in a separate post.
ATF wants the forms back at their facility in 30 days. The mailing date was 2 weeks ago. Which means these forms need to be corrected RIGHT THE FUCK NOW and sent out. Oh and she's got no fingerprint cards.
I tell her that I can drop everything I'm doing this evening, go over everything with a fine tooth comb and have this done in a few hours and I can drop them off tomorrow. She says if I can make a house call that would be good since she has furniture movers coming to empty their house in the morning. I tell her no problem. $350 and I'll see her tomorrow.
I run down all the forms and fix everything. I do a public records search and pull court filings for the probate and print them off and enclose them as ATF requested.
$350 for basically an hour's worth of work isn't bad. There's a steak/bottle of wine split for Eddie in there since it was his lead.
8PM: I call Karen back and tell her I've got everything done but ATF needs a copy of the will. She says she has it. I got everything else they asked off the clerk's website. She's super impressed. I tell her there's a reason Eddie called me.
9PM: Time to cook dinner. My phone is about to die. Just as I plug it in I get a call from u/fat_italian_stallion
He NEVER calls me unless something's up.
We had a quick chat over the weekend at the gun show that went something like this
FC: So that's how I got catfished by a grandma on bumble
FIS: LOL that is epic bad. I'm in New Orleans for a week on vacation with the gf
FC: The psycho one?
FIS: You know it.
FC: If you need bail money let me know
FIS: I just might!
That was Sunday morning. It's tuesday night. My phone dies as I try talking to him. I switch to my landline and call him.
FC: What up?
FIS: I need a solid
FC: How bad is it this time?
FIS: Can I sleep at your house tonight? She went nuts again and attacked me.
FC: I told you not to get invovled with her didn't I?
FIS: She's hot!
FC: You know I'm like 3 hours away from you right?
FIS: Yeah I got a half tank of gas.
FC: Go fill it, here's the address. See you around midnight. You hungry?
FIS: Starving.
FC: I was getting ready to fix dinner. I'll see you at midnight. Get here when you get here.
9PM-1145PM: I fix up the guest suite and prepare dinner. I run to the Target near my house since they close at 10 and grab a few more things. I get back just before 10 and I prepare to fire up the grill and get a steak going, salad and a fresh ravioli dish drowned in Rao's tomato basil sauce is on the menu. Steak hits the fire at 1130 and is resting by 1145. I plate everything and have it on the table at midnight.
1145PM: I get some spare towels and hotel soaps and shampoos. I head out to the driveway and turn on all my lights and leave the garage door open. I set a lawn chair up and crack open a large bag of boom chicka pop poprcorn and await the arrival of one u/fat_italian_stallion
1204AM: u/fat_italian_stallion rolls up. I've got guns and roses "Used to love her" playing on the ipad
FC: sup?
FIS: Long day.
FC: Dinner's on the table. Lets eat.
Wednesday September 16th
We eat and go to sleep. fat_italian_stallion does not know I have slid my spare ipad into the guest suite on the nightstand.
Did you know you can set an alarm on an ipad to instead of making a noise to play a song?
757AM: The ipad alarm wakes up fat_italian_stallion. The song? A little band called Confederate Railroad blasting "I like my women a little on the trashy side." He'll have to tell you the rest of the story.
9AM: I chat with fat italian and we chat a bit skipping breakfast. He has decided to leave this godforsaken state and put some miles between him and the psycho. I don't blame him one bit.
10AM: Breakfast! I throw on a charcoal canali and hit the chickfila drive thru for some breakfast chicken biscuits. I head to my desk and get some paperwork and some calls done.
11AM: I get a call from my attorney buddy Sam. He wants to know how many laws his client who has sent in a Form 1 and not notified the CLEO has broken. I explain I was just having that debate with someone on the internet! It's not a big deal but still kinda a big deal. Our consensus is that it's not count one on the indictment but it could be count five or six.
12PM: Lunchtime. I'm not hungry so I skip lunch. I head to meet with the grandma with the MG and I go over all her new forms that she needs to get fixed with fingeprint cards and my notes. She's super appreciative and gives me $350 in cash. She can't find the will. I call her attorney that I know and he's not picking up. I tell her see if she can get an original copy of the will from the clerks office or from the attorneys office, they normally have a copy.
I ask her what plans she has for the gun. I mean, what's a grandma supposed to do with a registered Colt M16?
All her husbands friends wanted it and they all offered her the same amount so she didn't need it and decided to sell it. She's taking the $5000 she's getting and going on an Alaskan cruise with the grandkids after the world calms down. I shrug. She should have called me.
2PM: Back at my desk, I call the judge's chambers that's doing the probate. Judge Smith LOVES the 308 that I got him a few years ago and is super pleased with my services since he didn't tell the wife about his purchase and I had just gotten a damaged case of 308 PMC Bronze that I made him a hell of a deal on that UPS wrote off. I tell the JA that ATF probably isn't going to call but in case they do just be ready. She's super glad that I told her ahead of time so she can be ready.
Judge Smith is retiring in a few months and he's got some time in the schedule so she patches me through and we catch up for a little bit. I am told that they're going to try to do a COVID compliant socially distanced retirement disrobing party but it's all up in the air. I say if you all need someone to bring potato salad to let me know. As a stalwart of the legal community for many years, lots of folks know the judge so it's well deserved after 20+ years on the bench. As I am also well known in the legal communty the least I can do is show up with a bottle of red for the guy that's signed hundreds of form 4's for me over the years.
3PM: I ship out a few more pistols and sell an M1A scout squad to a guy in California. Not a bad day.
4PM: I'm done for this week. Between the gun show and getting catfished and everything I've earned some time off. I think I'm gonna take the rest of the week off. The phone rings and a guy wants some 9mm ammo. I sell him 500 rds at $375 plus shipping.
Thursday September 17th to Friday September 18th: I wrote this for you all to read.

2020.09.18 01:59 LydiaFleur Is this narcissistic abuse? (Sorry for long post)

(All initials are fake) TW: Sex, guilt tripping
So me and my ex (NEX) were friends and she was in a bad relationship with someone and I helped get them out of that relationship. Then she got very attached to me and basically moved in with me. We started dating in summer 2017 when she visited me in my home country. A couple of months later she had a big breakdown because her "dependent" wasn't in her home country with her. So I moved there to be with her.
Our first time having sex (and my first time ever) she took my hand and led me into the bedroom. Took off all my clothes while she stayed fully clothed and tied me to the bed. Then she left the room, leaving me there, for about 20 minutes. I didn't want to do anything but I was tied up and I wanted to please her because she made me feel so guilty any time I would say no (which I had done in the past until I finally caved this time --I was a sex-repulsed asexual. After all the guilt-trips it caused me to become hypersexual). When she came back she tried spanking me with a crop, but it was just ticklish to me, so her friend, CB, from the other room came in to find out why I was laughing and NEX got them to hit me with the cane. Both of them fully clothed and me still naked and tied to the bed. CB proceeded to hit me as hard as they could with the crop, which still tickled to me, until they hit to high and started hitting the bottom of my back, where my kidneys were. That hurt a lot. NEX then announces that I'm too much effort and decided to stop and buy takeaway instead. I get dressed. That was my first time. (For unrelated reasons NEX cut off CB not long after that.)
After that NEX gave up doing anything to me, and instead asked me to do stuff to her. Sometimes I obliged, but whenever I said no she would guilt me until I did what she asked. When I eventually told her what she was doing she yelled at me and told me not to do that to her again. She still continued to guilt me whenever I said no though.
She was always in the overdraft, even when receiving university loan. She wanted to drop out of uni, so I asked her to look into a disability like I was on (I'm disabled) before doing that so we could still pay rent. She didn't and just dropped out of uni and then had a breakdown about not having enough money to pay rent. Our friend, JT, finally got her to the disability payments centre to sign up and I called my parents and borrowed money-1000 from them for rent and food. NEX immediately wanted to get a takeaway when she learnt we had money.
We catsit for JT's friend, so I ask NEX to clean under the bed so it's safe and clean for the cats because I was in pain from cleaning the rest of the flat. She says she does and then when looking for the kitten I find him under there and it is NOT clean (literally 0 effort was made). He comes out covered in dust, so I lock the room and clean it myself. Under the bed I find NEX's ex-friend CB's (remember them from earlier?) birth certificate (kind of important you know), NEX wants to throw it away, but I convince her to let me message CB to give it back to them (sidenote: They used to sleep together. One time they fucked while drunk and instead of calling it "drunken sex" NEX said they raped each other). When they arrive NEX invites them in; CB tells them about how JA (our upstairs neighbour who lives with NEX's ex and NEX described as an abusive friend) was sorry, so NEX decided to get back in contact with them. They hang out for a couple of weeks while I take care of the cats (a male kitten with attachment issues and female adult in heat and with a bad leg which required me to give them meds. So it wasn't easy, they had to be kept separate but both needed attention). Then NEX gets sick of JA and CB and decides to cut them both off completely. No explanation, no warning. Just blocks them both on everything. They obviously get confused and start messaging me and coming to our door. NEX makes me block them too, even though I begged her to let me just say a simple "sorry, NEX doesn't want to be friends anymore".
After the cats go back to their owner, me and NEX get a kitten of our own. Let's call him CAT. I teach CAT how to sit, wait, lie down, give his paw, and speak, all in sign language. I cleaned his litter tray because NEX didn't like going near poop. And I fed him and cleaned the food bowl because she didn't like the look of cat food. And I got on the floor and played with him. She had a lot of breakdowns about how he preferred me. JT paid for CAT using his savings (because NEX had spent all our money) and I told him I was going to start up a monthly plan to pay him back. NEX yelled at me because she didn't want to pay him back, and gave him her old tablet instead which was worth less than the cat and she was also planning on giving him anyway.
I signed up for extra disability payments. Had a terrible time in the review and was denied it. JT came with me and spooned me to sleep afterwards because I was so depressed and anxious. NEX then started yelling at him and everyone fell out while I was sleeping off my depression. I literally woke up to screaming and a slamming door as JT stormed out.
I got everyone together to talk to help them forgive each other. Turns out JT was just defending me because NEX was yelling about how I was going to "milk" being sad because of the disability payment rejection and that he was just trying to steal her away from me. They all made up and NEX said she had only said that about me because it's something her Nana says about her.
All of the bills were in my name, but when me and NEX went to get our disability payments combined she made sure all of the income went into her account. Because she was always money-250 in the overdraft that had to be covered before she sent me the money for the bills. She then took the remaining money and split it 50/50, despite me getting a higher disability payment than her and the fact that I did our part of the grocery shopping for the flat. She'd still end up in the overdraft by the next months payment, I still have no idea where all that money went. Everytime I got birthday or Christmas money from my Grandparents it went straight into her bank account to cover the overdraft.
NEX kept having breakdowns about how little money we had, so I got a job as a stripper to bring in extra income. All the money went to NEX.
Flash forward a couple of months, me and NEX are collecting prescriptions and she points to a random girl she knew from uni and said that "she's worse than your sister" (you know, the one who gave me PTSD, BPD, and DID). I went to spend the night at JT's because I was so upset. Next morning I came back and she wrote a list comparing me to her abusive ex because I stayed the night at JT's and then called people in to the bedroom one by one to talk to them and forgive them for upsetting her. After all that she was most concerned about JT being mad at her. Not that she upset me so much I had to leave my own flat.
Another couple of months later she has a breakdown because I haven't proposed. So next thing I know we're engaged.
Then we started dating SK (we're polyamourous). NEX insisted that we take things super slow, like not even allowed to kiss him. Then she goes over to see BX (SK's partner who lives with him and NEX's friend) and comes back gushing about how they had sex (NEX and SK, not BC). Which was completely against the rules we had set. She continued to sleep with him, and wouldn't let me see him alone even though I was dating him too and she constantly went to see him alone. Everytime I asked to have some alone time with him she'd have a breakdown. She also asked out JT on behalf of both of us even though I didn't want to date him. This was after me driving him all the way to another city about 8 hours away for an appointment and back in the same day so I was exhausted.
A couple of months later again: Me, her and SK had sex together, as you do when you're in a relationship together. But it was before I could actually DO (I used to not be able to have penetrative sex due to my disability) anything. So I got majorly triggered and wanted to stop, but they continued to have sex next to me while I was frozen. After that I said I wanted to go for a drive to clear my head, SK tried to stop me, but NEX said I did that all the time (I had never done that, she just wanted time with him alone) when I got back I explained what happened to NEX and they promised not to do it in front of me again, or have sex in the flat while I was about. About a month later they fucked in the shower, loudly. Triggering me again. I just wanted to be depressed and talk myself through it but NEX wouldn't leave me alone, saying that it was ridiculous and I couldn't be mad at her. So I said I forgave her and moved on.
At one point our bed broke, so we were sleeping on a mattress on the floor, all the getting up and down caused me to tear a lesion (and have an endo flare up), which left me bedbound. Instead of caring for me like I did full-time for her (I cooked, cleaned, did the shopping, comforted her through her breakdowns, etc), NEX went to stay with SK, leaving JT with me to help care for CAT (despite the fact he was a full-time carer for his sister and she needed him). I couldn't even stand to get to the toilet, I had to literally drag myself on all fours to get there. After about a week of this I called her crying and begged her to come back because I loved her and wanted her there with me. It took a while, but eventually I recovered and we got a new bed, and I went back to being her full-time carer again.
Later on I started dating my current partner (let's just call him Partner) and she starts dating FQ (a kind-of friend of mine too, I helped them out when their parents nearly disowned them and got them a job at the club I worked at) and I don't dedicate 100% of my time caring for her because I travel to Partner's home to take him to appointments and see him. I accidentally upset our roommate by having sex while she's in the flat (I'd had only just begun to be able to have sex because of my endo, and Partner was really gentle with me). I apologise, but then get a call from NEX saying that Roommate called her to complain. Before the sex happened I told Roommate that we'd try to keep it down when we joked about having sex later. When I heard her complain I immediately stopped and went to apologise and make her a cup of tea. She said she wanted me to go and she wanted to be alone. So I locked up and left the flat and left her a message saying so, apologising again, and saying we'd be back later.
Get another call from NEX saying how mad she is because Roommate said I'd left. I tried explaining but she wouldn't listen. Panic set in so I went home and just stayed in my room. I texted Rommate first to warn her I was coming home. Still got shit. This time from SK too. I couldn't take anymore, so I went to Partner's home because he was panicking too.
A week later I come home and the "intervention" happens. I understand I fucked up. But I apologised and tried my best to make it right. I got messages from SK and BC as I was driving home saying horrible things and demanding that Partner be left out of it and not come with me.
When I arrived back they locked me out. I had to beg to be let in, and eventually they unchained the door. I walked into the lounge and there was 6 (NEX, SK, BC, FQ, Roommate, and NEX's mother) of them sitting on every chair. I was made to sit on the floor with all of them looking down at me, and then they yell at me simultaneously about how I've been abusing NEX for 2 years (since we were friends, and before we had met any of them). I sit there and take it because I went into survival mode, and then they said it was good I wasn't making things worse by trying to defend myself. NEX even said that I had been neglecting CAT and that I didn't care about him anymore, despite the fact that I was the one who cleaned his litter box and fed him and cleaned his food bowls. She also kept saying about how she was "fine" with me going to see SK by myself, and that I was just lying to make her look bad. FQ told me the the only reason they hadn't "beaten me to a pulp" was the fact that NEX was a self-proclaimed pacifist. Later that evening when me and NEX were alone together NEX started telling me about all the people they beat up in high school.
JT and SK break up with me, and BC stays overnight to make sure I don't "do anything" to NEX. I try to sleep on the couch because I went instantly into survival mode when I arrived back. I was told to sleep in the bed with NEX, she told me she wanted everything to go back to normal and that it was all "Water under the bridge".
I say at about 1am that I'm going to stay with my cousin and check myself into a mental health place, but stop and see Partner first because their mental health was bad and it was too late to see my cousin right away. Went to stay with Partner instead because he was begging me to leave (and my cousin cut contact with me when they learned I was LGBT+, which I had told NEX previously). I leave the flat to find that my tyres have been slashed. Partner calls his friend and she picks me up.
The next week I finally get the courage to break up with NEX. She goes to the disability payment centre and changes our things to separate accounts again, but keeps her bank details on both (SK messaged me telling me that she had done this, but not that she kept her bank details on both). So next time I was due to be paid she got the money (over money-500) and kept it for herself; the bills were still in my name so I had to fight with her to pay her share, seeing as I still paid mine despite not living there anymore, eventually she sent the money, but not all of it (I had been paying for Spotify for her, so I cancelled it to make up some of the difference, and messaged her saying so). She also ordered a lot of takeaway using my number as the contact so I had to let them all know that their takeaway had arrived in the middle of the night.
Also her and JT gathered up all the photos they had with me in them and burned them. And posted this publicly over social media.
Roommate blackmailed me with the car, and stole my private documentation from me. She was refusing to give me the car details so I could transfer the car to her name (which we had agreed to do), until I sent her money-3000 (despite the fact I had already paid her over my share of the total car payment, and I had been giving her free driving lessons). I had to get my parents to call her parents to get it sorted.
My father (who's in his 70's) came to help me move my stuff out of the apartment, and FQ came running over to his car screaming about how he was going to beat him up and how Parter shouldn't even be there because it was "none of his business". Eventually he went inside to be with NEX, luckily my dad wasn't harmed.
Sorry it's so long, this is everything I remember happening in the relationship. I just think their reaction to my fuck up was very OTT. Like I know I fucked up, and I tried my best to make it better, but they were having none of it.
Sorry if their are typos, I'm dyslexic and initials are really hard for me to use.

We appreciate all of you who add to the conversation, and best of luck on your next-gen console hunting missions.

Vis

https://preview.redd.it/8fqh9vogryj51.jpg?width=1600&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=c061a780e88c4c0e49918588d906dee84dc8cf5a
Ove godine sam se s momkom zaputila na otok Vis i vidjela sam da ima jako puno pitanja ove godine, kao i prijašnjih o tome što se najviše isplati vidjeti, a da nekada nije sve u potpunosti odgovoreno. S obzirom na to da mi je bilo jako lijepo, odlučila sam natipkati svoja turistička iskustva na prekrasnom otoku Visu na oba jezika da možda u budućnosti to pomogne i nekom strancu.
This year I visited Vis island with my boyfriend. I noticed there are a lot of questions from people wanting to go there and not all were answered. Because I had such a lovely time I've decided to type out all of my experiences from one tourist to another. I did it both in Croatian and in English so foreigners can find info as well.
Na otok Vis najlakše se dođe trajektom iz Splita (ljeti vozi i trajekt iz Ancone na Vis). Trajekt na relaciji plovi 3 puta dnevno. Također, može se doći i katamaranom koji plovi jednom dnevno. Ukoliko na otok idete autom, moja preporuka je da kupite kartu online nekoliko dana ranije (pogotovo ako je srce sezone). To vam je ujedno i rezervacija i iz mog iskustva nitko vam ne može uzeti to mjesto, ne trebate stati u red satima ranije, već slobodno stanete sat vremena prije. Mi smo išli autom, tako da nisam sigurna kako je samo za putnike, ali mislim da u tom slučaju nema potrebe toliko ranije kupovati kartu. Trajekt kojim se vozite se zove Petar Hektorović i polazi s mjesta označenog na slici ispod. Vožnja traje cca 2 i pol sata i stižete direktno u mjesto Vis.
On the island of Vis you can arrive by ferry from Split (in the summer there is also a ferry line from Ancona). The ferry sails three times a day and you can also take a catamaran which sales once a day. If you are going in a car I would suggest buying a ticket online at least a few days earlier (especially if you are going in the heart of the season). The ticket is a reservation and from my experience, nobody can take your place, you don't need to arrive hours earlier and stand in the line. You can get there about an hour early. We went with a car so I'm not sure what it's like for passengers but I do believe there is no need to buy a ticket that early. The ferry is called Petar Hektorović and it departures from the spot marked in the picture below. The ferry ride takes around 2 and a half hours and you arrive directly in Vis.

Smještaj / Accomodation

Komiža
Što se tiče smještaja možete birati između nekoliko lokacija na otoku Visu, s tim da su najpopularniji Vis i Komiža. Mi smo bili smješteni na Komiži koja je povezana Visom brzom cestom (cca 15ak minuta vožnje), a također vozi i mini bus na toj relaciji. Komiža je inače poznata kao ribarska lokacija na Visu. Jako mi se svidjela. :) Prepuna je starinskih kućica u kamenu koje daju cijelom mjestu nekakvu posebnu atmosferu. Gušt je prošetati se navečer rivom, otići na mol i gledati brodiće kako se pijano njišu. Ukoliko više volite tako nekakav starinski štih, svakako preporučam Komižu. Samo mjesto Vis mi se činilo modernije uređeno, iako se tamo zapravo mogu naći rimski ostatci, ali o tome malo kasnije.
Accommodation can be found in several locations. The most popular places to be in are Vis and Komiža. We rented apartments in Komiža which is connected to Vis via fast road (circa 15ish minutes). There is also a small bus which drives from Vis to Komiža and vice versa. Komiža is generally known as a fisherman location. I very much enjoyed it. :) It's full of rustic houses made out of stone which give the entire place a special atmosphere. It's a real pleasure to take a walk in the evening alongside the promenade, go to the pier and look at various ships swinging as if they were a little drunk. If you like this type of rustic architecture, I recommend Komiža. Vis by itself seems to me as if the architecture is a bit more modern, even though roman remnants can be found there. But I'll talk about that a little later.
Smještaj možete još naći u mjestima na jugu otoka - Milna i Rukavac. Uvala Milna je prepuna lijepih velikih vila i rentanje je dosta skuplje nego na drugim dijelovima otoka. Naravno, za tu cijenu dosta dobijete (odmah ste uz plažu, prekrasan pogled, skroz opremljeni apartmani), ali je za one dubljeg džepa. Generalno, u Milni se lijepo i kupati, a preko puta se nalazi nekoliko manjih otoka. Rukavac ima veliki izbor apartmana. Iako ne nudi sadržaj kao Komiža ili Vis, jedna od glavnih pluseva za smještaj u Rukavcu je blizina dosta dobrih plaža.
Accommodation can also be found in the south of the island, in Milna and Rukavac. Cove Milna is filled with beautiful villas and renting is a bit more expensive than in the other parts of the island. Of course, for that price, they offer a lot (such as closeness to the beaches, beautiful view, fully equipped apartments) but it's for those with a deeper pocket. Rukavac also has a lot of apartments to offer. Even though it doesn't offer as much as content such as Komiža or Vis, one of the biggest pluses for choosing accommodation in Rukavac is the closeness of a lot of good beaches.
Na cijelom otoku postoje dva hotela, jedan u Visu, a drugi u Komiži. Ovaj u Komiži se zove Biševo i ne bih ga preporučila s obzirom da mu hitno treba renovacija. Drugi se zove Issa i smješten je u blizni Visa te je blizu raznih plažica na kojima ima borova i hlada. Dosta je lijepo uređen, moderniji, a samim time i skuplji od Biševa kao i smještaja u apartmanima.
There are two hotels on the entire island, one in Vis, and the other one in Komiža. The one in Komiža is called Biševo and I wouldn't recommend it since it desperately needs a renovation. The other one is called Issa and it is situated near Vis. There are a lot of little beaches near it which are surrounded by pines that provide a decent amount of shadows. This hotel is nicely decorated, more modern and naturally more expensive than Biševo and accommodation you can get in apartments.

Plaže / Beaches

Plaže su jedan od najbitnijih faktora svakog ljetovanja na Jadranu, a Vis ih nudi jako, jako puno! Ima jako puno uvala i uvalica po cijelom otoku i do nekih plaža se treba zbilja namučiti da se dođe, dok su druge pristupačne samo brodom. Mi ih nažalost nismo uspjeli sve vidjeti i posjetiti, ali mogu izdvojiti one koje su nam baš zapale za oko i koje su između ostalog dosta popularne.
Beaches are one of the most important factors for those spending summer in Adriatic sea. Vis offers a lot and I do mean a lot of beaches. There are a lot of big and small coves on the entire island. To get to some beaches you really have to put in some effort while some are approachable only by boat. Unfortunately, we didn't manage to visit and see all beaches, but I will talk about the ones that are special and most popular.

Srebrna

https://preview.redd.it/5lzu5egmryj51.jpg?width=1500&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=ad871604bab954d7f50789c8177be16533cd2d0c
Srebrena je plaža locirana kod Rukavca i mnogima je omiljena plaža na Visu. Dobila je ime zapravo po srebrnom sjaju oblutaka pod mjesečinom. Oblutci su zapravo neobično veliki, ako se usporede s onima na ostalim viškim šljunčanim plažama. Okružena je borovom šumom, ima jako puno hlada i popularni je izbor za obitelji s malom djecom. Kod plaže postoji parking od kojeg vam treba 5 minuta do same plaže.
Srebrna (cro. silver) is a beach located near Rukavac and it is one of the favourite beaches to many on Vis. It got its name because of the silver reflection of pebbles under the moonlight. Pebbles are actually quite large and if you compare them to the other Vis beaches. It is surrounded by pines that provide a lot of shadows. It's a popular choice for families with children. There is a parking near the beach and from there you need around 5 minutes of walking to the beach itself.

Stončica

https://preview.redd.it/irpo4q9nryj51.jpg?width=1500&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=700e259d3d2c2d80b52786843f37c9c144241627
Stončica je smještena na istočnoj strani otoka u istomenoj uvali. Osim restorana i kafića postoji i igralište za odbojku na pijesku. Sama plaža je šljunčana. Nama se nije posebno svidjela jer je u tom trenutku u uvali bilo usidreno dosta brodova, ali plaža kao plaža je fora jer nudi sadržaj koje ostale ne.
Stončica is situated on the easter side of the island in the cove of the same name. Besides a restaurant and a bar, there is also a beach volleyball court. The beach is filled with pebbles. We didn't particularly like it because we were there when a lot of boats were anchored there. But the beach by itself is cool because it offers something the rest of them don't.

Stiniva

https://preview.redd.it/9wlfecforyj51.jpg?width=1500&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=25537e45da0d8657e4e8fadac9b1b1777d65b644
Stiniva je proglašena najljepšom plažom Europe 2016. godine, tako da ju se svakako isplati posjetiti. Uvala je smještena na južnoj strani otoka i krase ju visoke stjene po kojima je i postala poznata. Može joj se pristupiti s kopna, ali spremite se na dosta strmi poljski spust od 20 do 30 minuta. U nekim situacijama smo morali malo i zastati da vidimo kako bi se uopće najbolje i spustili. Za one koji nisu spremni za ovakve avanture postoje razni izleti brodom koji dolaze u uvalicu. Na plaži postoji kafić koji nudi razna pića, pa i nešto za prigristi. Iako nema nikakvog drveća koje bi pružilo hlad, zbog visokih stijena uvijek ima jedan dio plaže prirodni hlad. Ukoliko se nađete na Visu, ovo je jedna od plaža koju svakako preporučam. Jednostavno je prekrasna i unikatna.
Stiniva was declared as the most beautiful beach in Europe in 2016, so it is definitely worth a visit. The cove is situated on the south side of the island and it became popular because of the tall and beautiful cliffs. You can approach it by foot on land but be prepared for a really steep descent on a field road that lasts for about 20-30 minutes. In some situations, we had to take a little break to see which way is even the safest/best to climb down. For those who are not comfortable with such adventures, there are a lot of boat trips that arrive in the cove. On the beach, there is a bar that offers a variety of drinks and even some snacks. Even though there is no shadow from the trees, because of the tall cliffs there is always one part of the beach that is in the shadow. If you find your way to Vis, this is definitely one of the beaches I recommend. It's simply stunning and unique.

Komiške plaže / Komižan beaches

Kamenice
Najbliže plaže centru Komiže su Gusrica i Kamenice. Gusarica je relativno mala plaža smještena ispod hotela Biševo. Radi se zapravo o jednostavnoj šljunčanoj plaži, koju najviše spominjem zato što je jedna od glavnih lokacija za brčkanje u Komiži. Druga plaža u Komiži zove se Kamenice. Preko dana je tu šljunčana plaža s beach barom, a kad padne mrak se plaža pretvara u noćni klub. Nismo išli u klub ove godine jer je zbilja bilo puno ljudi, a veći gušt nam je bilo šetuckati po rivi.
Gusarica and Kamenice are two beaches close to the centre of Komiža. Gusarica is a relatively small beach situated under the hotel Biševo. It's actually a simple pebble beach which I'm mentioning mostly because it's one of the main locations for taking a swim in Komiža. The other beach nearest to the Komiža centre is Kamenice. During the day it's a pebble beach with a beach bar, but during the night it's actually a club/disco. We didn't really visit it during the night because there was a lot of people and we simply preferred to take a walk alongside the seafront.
Ima još nekoliko plaža u blizini Komiže, ali ili su dostupne strmim poljskim stazama ili im se može prići samo brodom. Neke koje smo posjetili su Templuž (FKK) i Pizdica. Pizdica je fora, osim zbog imena i zbog toga što se tamo nalaze izvori pitke vode. Preporučam da za ove plaže iznajmite kajake i odveslate ili platiti taksi brod (5 minuta vožnje) do njih jer je zbilja najbolji način za prilazak.
There are a few more beaches near Komiža but they are approachable either by steep descents or you can get there only by boat. Some we visited are Templuž (FKK) and Pizdica (cro. little pussy). Pizdica is neat because of the funny name it has and because it has springs of drinking water. I recommend to either rent a kayak and paddle there or pay for a taxi boat (5-minute ride) to get there because accessing them via seaside is just a better option.

Bili Bok (FKK)

https://preview.redd.it/oa747wbrryj51.jpg?width=1500&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=16dd0582a8ecb7d8b80dd8563e2a88d53f7a06c9
Kako i stoji u podnaslovu, Bili bok je nudistička plaža. Ukoliko vas ta vrsta aktivnosti odbija, ovo definitivno nije plaža za vas. Međutim, iako dečko i ja inače nismo nudisti, ovo nam je definitivno bila najdraža plaža na Visu, ne zato što je nudistička, ali i to ima prednosti - jedna od kojih je zasigurno što nema puno ljudi, nikada. Zbilja je za odmoriti se od svega. Plaža je smještena u blizini Rukavca, lako se dođe autom i parkira u blizini. Od parkinga do plaže treba par minuta hoda. Bili bok je karakterističan po tome što je to plaža samo u stijenama, nema tipičan šljunčani ulaz, već je more odmah duboko i zapravo možete skočiti u dubinu. Ovakvu boju mora, nisam nikad vidjela, plivate okruženi ribicama koje vas se ne boje jer ih tamo malo tko lovi. U moru možete običi uvalicu i vidjeti fora stijene na koje se možete čak popeti i skakati s veće uzvisine. Jednostavno prekrasno. Plaža doduše ima jedan nedostatak - do kasnijih popodnevnih sati nema baš hlada.
As stated in the subtitle, Bili bok is a nudist beach. If you're not into that kind of things, this surely isn't a beach for you. Even though my boyfriend and I are not nudists, this was definitely our favourite beach on Vis. It has nothing to do with it being nudist, but that has its own advantages - there are almost no people there, ever. You can really rest and get away from the crowds. The beach is situated near Rukavac. You can easily access it by car and park in the nearby with only a couple of minutes of walk to get to the beach itself. The beach is characteristics because it's basically in rocks, there is no typical pebble-like entrance and the sea is immediately deep (no shallow entrance at all) and you can just jump inside. This shades of the sea I've never seen. You swim surrounded by little fishes which aren't afraid of you because almost nobody fishes there. While inside the sea you can swim around the cove see some cool rocks on which you can even climb and jump from higher ground. The beach is just beautiful. The only disadvantage is that there are almost no shadows until later afternoon.

Ostale plaže / Other beaches

Milna
Ima još pregršt plaža na Visu i po okolnim otocima, samo nismo imali kad posjetiti sve. Neke koje bih još predložila i spomenula su Tepluš, u Rukavcu. Lijepa plaža s kafićem, lijepim šljunčanim ulazom i stijenama za skakanje. Nalazi se u blizini Bilog boka. Pritišćina je još jedna lijepa plaža koja se sastoji od lijepe, netipične uvalice. Već sam spomenula Milnu kao mjesto i uvalu. Plaža u Milni je karakteristična po tome što se jako dugo proteže plićak pa je zgodna za piciginaše.
There are a bunch of other beaches on Vis and on the close-by islands, we just didn't have time to visit them all. Some others I would recommend visiting are Tepluš in Rukavac. It's a really nice beach with a beach bar, nice pebble entrance and rocks from which you can jump. It's located near Bili bok. Pritišćina is another pretty beach which has an unusual nice cove. I already mentioned Milna and Milna cove. The beach is characteristic because it has the shallow sea for a while so it's pretty convenient for those who like to play picigin.

Izleti / Trips

https://preview.redd.it/orpqxgqvryj51.jpg?width=1500&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=c947c29f8509ad67fb4cb38878a9f005119bf9ad
Na Visu valja posjetiti neke stvari. Ima jako puno turističkih agencija koje nude razne programe i izlete. Najpopularniji je, s punim pravom, izlet u Modru špilju. Postoje dvije varijacije ovog izleta. Prvi je da se s brodom doveze na Biševo, pogledate Modru špilju i onda idete nazad na Vis. Druga opcija je da odete na Biševo, pogledate Modru špilju i onda odete na plažu na Biševu koja se zove Porat. Porat je lijepa pješčana plaža gdje možete uživati u kristalno čistom moru i nekoliko restorana. Zbog svakodnevnih izleta i velike količine turista zna se zagužvati na plaži.
There are some trips you should make while on Vis. A lot of tourist agencies offer various programs and trips. One of the most popular ones is a trip to the Blue cave. There are two variations of this trip. First one is going to the island of Biševo, visiting the Blue cave and then going back to Vis. Or you can go to Biševo, visit the Blue cave and then go to the beach on Biševo which is called Porat. Porat is a pretty sandy beach where you can enjoy crystal clear sea and few restaurants. Because of the every-day trips and a big amount of tourists it can be a bit crowdy on the beach.
Drugi najpopularniji izlet u ponudi je izlet brodom oko otoka. Ovisno o agenciji staje se u razne uvale u kojim se onda ima neko vrijeme za kupanje. Najčešće se ide u uvalu Stiniva i na otok Budikovac gdje se nalazi plaža zvana Plava laguna i jednostavno je prekrasna. Ti izleti imaju varijacije i sigurno možete naći nešto što vam baš odgovara. Također su popularni i izleti na Palagružu i Jabuku, a postoji i tzv. "military tour" jer je Vis zapravo od 1944. do 1992. bio vojna baza. Sad je to turistička atrakcija. Osobno me to nije zanimalo, pa nisam ni išla, ali za one koja takva tematika zanima bi izlet mogao biti zanimljiv. Na otoku se još mogu vidjeti razne stare utvrde i utvrdice, u samom Visu rimske terme i teatar. To ne čudi s obzirom na to da Vis ima bogatu povijest koja seže još u starogrčka naseljavanja.
The second most popular trip you can find on Vis is a trip with a boat around the island. Depending on the agency, you make a stop in various coves around the island where you can take a swim. Most common ones are Stiniva cove and island called Budikovac. On Budikovac you can find a beach called Blue lagoon and it is stunning. These trips have a lot of variety and I'm sure everyone can find something that suits them. Trips to Palagruža island and Jabuka island (the smallest island in Croatia) are also popular. One other tour Vis has to offer is a military tour. Vis was a military base from 1944 to 1992 and now these military locations are turned into a tourist attraction. Personally I'm not into that kind of stuff so I didn't go to this trip but for those who are interested in military stuff, this would be great. On the island, you can find a lot of old forts and fortresses and in Vis you can also see roman therms and theatre. This isn't a surprise since Vis has a rich history that dates all the way to Greek colonization.

Modra špilja je zapravo jedan od razloga zbog kojeg smo išli na Vis. Meni je to izgledalo apsolutno fantastično i morala sam ići vidjeti. :) Naš izlet je izgledao tako da smo se ukrcali na brod, odvezli do Biševa, iskrcali i stali u red za posjet špilji. Kad dođete na red, ukrcavate se u manji brod, dođete do destinacije i uživate. :) Naučite malo o otkriću špilje, ulazima, reflekciji sunčevih zraka koje čine špilju modrom i slično. Voljela bih da smo se zadržali unutra dulje, ali voljela bih i da smo se mogli okupati jer zbilja izgleda prekrasno. Također, zbog te reflekcije kad stavite ruku u more ona izgleda srebrnkasto, pa tako i generalno sve uronjeno. Ovakvih prirodnih ljepota zbilja nema svuda, a špilja opravdava svoju popularnost. Htjela sam i opet ići.
Blue cave is one of the reasons we actually went to Vis. To me, this natural occurrence looks absolutely fantastic and I just had to see it. :) Our trip started in Komiža by boarding on a boat, going to Biševo island. We departed the ship, waited in line to go to another smaller ship which took us to the destination. You learn a bit about the finding of the cave, entrances, reflection of the sunbeams that make the cave blue and similar. I would wish we were able to stay inside longer but then again I also wish we could have taken a swim inside because it really looks beautiful. Also, because of the reflection in the cave, if you put your hand inside the sea (or any object really) it will look silverish. This kind of natural beauties cannot be found just anywhere and it's clear why the cave is so popular. I wanted to go again.

Restorani / Restaurants

https://preview.redd.it/b7l4cjxuryj51.jpg?width=1500&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=4efbda8c02697d0a799d126eda5b6c501ab0bad5
Gastronomija je nezaobilazni dio godišnjeg odmora, ali s obzirom na paprene cijene u većini restorana i činjenici da smo baš zbog toga uzeli apartman s kuhinjom, nismo zalazili u njih previše. Prvu večer smo zbog viška umora i manjka volje otišli u Pizzeriu Charlie gdje je dečko pojeo solidnu mješanu pizzu iz krušne peći, a ja ne baš tako bogatu paštu. Cijene su veće nego što smo navikli u Zagrebu. Još smo se odlučili počastiti jednu večer u ribljem restoranu a najpopularniji su bili restorani Bako, Barba i Jastožera, locirani uz obalu, svi jedni pored drugog. :D Za malo jeftiniju večeru možete se zaputiti u Konobu Robinzon koja zbilja ima pristupačnije cijene, a preporučila nam ga je lokalna tetica. Inače su izgleda na Visu jako popularni jastozi, velika je pomama za njima, a navodno ih ima jako malo.
Gastronomy is an unavoidable part of any holiday, but because of the spicy prices in most of the restaurants, we mostly stuck to our little kitchen in the apartment. The first evening we were very tired to we visited Pizzeria Charlie, where my bf had a solid pizza and I had a not so impressive pasta. Prices were a bit higher than what we are used to in Zagreb. We wanted to treat ourselves to a fish dinner in a restaurant one evening and most popular restaurants were Bako, Barba and Jastožera which are located on the coast, all next to each other. For a little cheaper dinner you can go to Konoba Robinzon where prices are more affordable. It was recommended to us by a local auntie. Also, lobsters are apparently very popular on Vis, there is a big demand for them and not a lot of them around.
Cijene u malim dućanima su u mjestima tipa Komiža skuplje (npr. 24 kn kila limuna), ali postoji Tommy Maximarket na brzoj cesti između Visa i Komiže i tamo se mogu nabaviti namirnice po normalnim cijenama. Ako želite nešto nabrzaka pojesti, postoji nekoliko pekara Kolderaj na otoku i svi imaju bogatu ponudu peciva, što lisnatih, što dizanih tijesta. Tamo možete probati i Komišku pogaču koja je specifična dakako za Komižu.
Prices in small stores in places like Komiža are a bit higher (e.g. 1 kg of lemon is 24HRK=3.20EUR), but there is Tommy Maximarket on the fast road between Vis and Komiža where you can buy stuff for normal prices. If you want a quick bite to eat, there are few bakeries called Kolderaj on the island and they have a rich offer of pastries and bread. You can also try Komižian pie there, which is, of course, specific for Komiža.

Ostalo / Miscellaneous

Ne znam ni sama što bih još napisala. Imala sam jako pozitivna iskustva na Visu. Ljudi su dragi, uvijek voljni odgovoriti turistima na pitanja, pokazati pravi smjer i dati generalni savjet. Sigurna sam da će svaka osoba na Visu naći nešto što će ju oduševiti. Bilo to skrivene i teško pristupljive plaže koje nude mir i tišinu, prirodne ljepote, povijest i rustikalnost otoka ili raznolikost izleta i atrakcija. Čak će i ljubitelji vina moći uživati jer unutrašnost otoka ima bogate vinograde. Ako vam je odlazak autom preskup, iznajmite skutere kako bi mogli vidjeti baš sve. Pazite se skupih restorana i morskih ježeva koji ima zaista jako puno. Posjetite Vis, nećete požaliti. 💙
I don't even know what else should I mention. I had very positive experiences in Vis. People are kind, always ready to answer tourist questions, show the right way or give a piece of general advice. I'm sure every person will find something in Vis that will simply amaze them. If it's the hidden and harder to approach beaches that offer peace and silence, natural beauties, history and rustic ambience the island offers or diversity of trips and attractions. Even wine lovers will be able to enjoy themselves because the island is filled with vineyards. If a trip by car is a bit too pricey, rent a scooter so you could visit and see everything. Tread lightly around expensive restaurants and sea urchins since there are a lot of them. Visit Vis - you won't regret it. 💙

Team Notes
Tigers Boyd gets a rematch against a White Sox lineup that hit him for seven runs over 4 2/3 innings, punctuated by a four-run fifth, on Wednesday at Comerica Park. Boyd said after that game that he needs to shake out of some bad habits mechanically.
White Sox González came within one out of recording his first career White Sox victory on Tuesday in Detroit but exited after 4 2/3 innings. He has allowed 26 hits and eight walks over 16 1/3 innings this season.

2020.08.17 10:15 CrispieAspie Ich hätte so gern Freundinnen - aber wie finden? ;_;

Eins vorweg: Wie meinem Benutzernamen zu entnehmen ist, bin ich am autistischen Spektrum, was ich erst neulich (im Alter von 29) erfahren habe, aber meine Situation und eigentlich mein ganzes Leben etwas erklärt.
Ich kam immer gut mit Jungs zurecht und hatte Probleme, in Mädchen-"Cliquen" teilzunehmen. Ursache dafür waren recht ausgeprägte "nerdige" Interessen und eine nicht zu brechende Zuordnung zur Gruppe der "Verrückten".
Dementsprechend glücklich war ich auf meiner IT-Schule, die praktisch rein aus den "Verrückten" Nerds bestand, da hatte ich jedoch bloß ein anderes Mädchen in der Klasse (und später war ich die einzige).
Irgendwann, als ich so 17, 18 war und meine ersten Connections ins Berufsleben hatte, sowie meinen jetzigen Ehemann kennenlernte, habe ich meine früheren Wege als "Special snowflake not like the other girls"-bullshit empfunden und "abgelegt". Im Zuge dessen habe ich Smalltalk und andere gesellschaftliche Navigation wie eine Besessene studiert und kann sie jetzt gut anwenden
Tja, um Freundinnen zu finden, reicht es noch immer nicht. So gut wie jedes Mal, wenn ich andere Frauen, die aus irgendeinem Grund in meinem Umfeld sind, auf eine Weise anspreche, die aus dem Smalltalk-Geplänkel heraustreten würde, ernte ich schiefe Blicke und höfliche Ablehnung.
Die einzige Erfahrung, in der ich aktiv weibliche Freunde gefunden habe, war, als ich erneut in themenspezifischen Online-Foren herumhing (in meiner Jugend war das so etwas wie DeviantArt und Animexx), die sich auch gelegentlich offline trafen - aber der Kontakt über die damaligen Messenger war schon eine Clique für sich :3.
Diese Szene hab ich in meinem Versuch der "Sozialisierung" vernachlässigt und dann passierte das Leben, ich war eine Weile lang zuhause mit meinen Kindern, und bis auf eine einzige Freundin mit Kindern (die mehr oder weniger unmissverständlich klar gemacht hat, dass sie sich mit uns trifft, weil sie unsere Kinder für guten Umgang für Ihre hält, und nicht etwa, weil sie mich persönlich als Freundin schätzen würde), kenne ich nun niemanden mehr, der an Freundschaft mit mir Interesse hätte.
Vermutlich wäre es möglich, wieder Leute kennenzulernen, wenn ich mich in ein Interesse triggern würde - aber für Online-Gaming mit Clans etc. fehlen mir schlichtweg die Ressourcen. Ich habe eine einzige Online-Freundin, ein mit-Aspie, der ich gelegentlich schreibe, shitposte und Memes schicke, aber auch sie lebt viel zu weit weg, um sich zB gelegentlich auf einen Kaffee zu treffen o.ä.
(Es scheint, als ist der Großteil der nicht-autistischen Bevölkerung zwar schon damit beschäftigt, seinen Freunden den Tag über Gedanken und Nachrichten auf schriftlichen Kanälen zu senden, möchte als Grundlage dafür aber Treffen im realen Leben erleben, was für mich ein Henne-Ei-Problem darstellt, weil auch keiner Lust hat, sich auf einen Kaffee mit jemandem zu treffen, den er überhaupt nicht kennt.)
"Geh in Clubs", ist die übliche Antwort, die nicht berücksichtigt, dass es mir in "geselligen" Situationen unmöglich ist, in Gruppengespräche einfach fröhlich einzusteigen und das irgendwie dorthin zu führen, mit Leuten, die mir nett erscheinen, persönlich ins Gespräch zu kommen.
Das ganze scheint mir noch komplizierter als diese ganze Dating - "Treffen wir uns mal auf nen Kaffee"-Geschichte, weil dort wenigstens die Intention klar und die beidseitige Bereitschaft offensichtlich ist...
Außerdem scheint es, dass in meinem Alter das prinzipielle Interesse daran, Freunde zu finden, eher schwach ist.
Müttergruppen kann ich eigentlich auch abschreiben, da erfahrungsgemäß die meisten frischgebackenen Eltern in Mutti-Freundschaften jemanden suchen, mit dem sie die aufregende Reise zusammen erleben können, und sich nicht mit unserer Crew von Kids und den damit einhergehenden Rahmenbedingungen befassen will.
Mein Mann, auch ein Introvert, hat Freunde in ziemlich spezifischen literarisch-philosophischen online-Gruppen - die werden aber wiederum von Männern dominiert und dort als Frau aufzutauchen ist einfach nicht dasselbe.
So oft hab ich auch schon gehört "Mach einfach dein Ding mit Überzeugung, dann findest du schon Anklang" - das hab ich mit einem Blog versucht und da tatsächlich Anklang gefunden, der sich aber ebenso rein auf den Inhalt bezogen hat und auch an persönlichem Kontakt kein Interesse hatte.
Ich muss wohl an meiner persönlichen Exzentrik im echten Leben arbeiten, obwohl mir dieses "Zur-Schau-stellen" eigentlich ziemlich peinlich ist.
Auch schon oft gehört, als ich um Rat fragte: "Du kommst ziemlich verzweifelt rüber, das ist nicht sehr attraktiv."
Womit die Katze sich wieder einmal in den Schwanz beißt. Tschuldigung, dass ich mich über Freunde freuen würde, wie jeder normale Mensch. Es sei gesagt, dass ich auch nicht bei der erstbesten Gelegenheit herausspringe und schreibe "Heyyyy gehen wir Kaffee trinken??? :)))" - ich habe ja die Gabe der Beobachtung - sondern wirklich jedes Mal einen neuen Ansatz verfolge und meine Haltung anpasse, ohne dabei jedoch andere Reaktionen zu erzielen. Sobald ich den Versuch mache, die Linie zur Freundschaft zu überschreiten, hagelt es kalte Schultern. Und wenn ich es nie versuche, ebbt die Interesse ebenso ab und ich kann mich entscheiden, weiter ins Nichts meine Nachrichten aus meinem unendlichen Born der Eigeninitiative zu schreiben, oder mein Versagen einfach zu akzeptieren.

2020.08.04 16:17 powerrankingsnba Official /r/NBA Power Rankings #10 (8.3.2020) - Enter The Bubble

22/30 rankers reporting this week. /NBA's Power Rankings are published every two weeks which is a bit different from most rankings. Other than that we rank the teams the same way as our competition. If write ups are left blank the team rep decided not to submit. We encourage any user to fill in the blanks in the comment section. Rankings were supposed to be completed prior to Today's games.
# Team Δ Record Comment
1 Bucks -- 54-13 After four months off, the Bucks are back and lookin' good, splitting two close games against the Celtics and Rockets. This is despite missing Bledsoe, who's perimiter defence was greatly missed against two teams with great backcourt initiators. Bledsoe and Pat Connaughton both tested postitive for COVID before reporting to the bubble, but are both back practicing, and assumedly will be in game-ready soon.
2 Lakers -- 51-15 The Lakers offense has struggled to start these NBA bubble games. In both games the team has shot well below their season averages in the field and on three pointers. Fortunately, the defense has been solid and it helped solidify the win against the Clippers. The #1 seed is essentially locked up so the Lakers are going to be using these remaining games to find rhythm and flow.
3 Raptors -- 48-18 Raptors have had two big wins since the season has restarted, with games against the Lakers and Miami. We’ve experienced some struggles offensively but our defence has picked up right where we left off. Big nights from Kyle against the Lakers and Freddy’s new career high against the Heat have been the biggest factors to our wins so far. With a tough upcoming stretch of games prior to playoffs look for the raptors to work on their offensive struggles, namely in the clutch, and continue developing defensively.
4 Clippers -- 45-21 The Clips really hurt their first game without Harrel and Lou Will, but PG is obviously back to his good ol self. Lou Will has a couple games to go before he comes back, but Harrel has no timeline, and so games will be a bit harder without him. If PG and Kawhi can continue to be the insane duo they've been on the court, then LAC might even get a lot of rest in the first/second round.LAC's bubble schedule is a tad easier than Denver's, so I fully expect them to secure the 2nd seed relatively soon.
5 Rockets +1 42-24 Remember that guy that tried to tell us that strip clubs negatively affected Harden's game? Who's laughing now, huh? With his commanding presence on both sides of the floor, we've been able to steal two huge comebacks in the Orlando bubble. It turns out that this is what we needed to unleash the defensive beast within him. The world wasn't ready for DPOY Harden...until now.
6 Celtics -1 44-22 The refs have a vendetta against Daniel Theis and there's nothing you can say that'll convince me otherwise. So far in the bubble, the Celtics barely lost to the Bucks in a game that was filled with controversy in the closing minutes, and then nearly fell to the Blazers in similar fashion before the combination of J&J saved the day. Celtics maintain a 2 game lead over the Heat for the 3 seed and as of today, would face the 76ers in the 1st round. Celtics have 6 games left, with matchups against the Heat, Nets, Raptors, Magic, Grizzlies, and Wizards. As long as they win the games they should win, the Celtics should find themselves sitting comfortably in the 3 seed.
7 Nuggets -- 44-23 And we're back! The rankers have woken from our 5 month slumber to find we're playing Bubble Basketball now. This ranker is also confused how the Nuggets have ended up MORE injured than they were 5 months ago. The Nuggets back court will need to heal up in the short time remaining before the playoffs, because starters Monte Morris and Torrey Craig will likely end in a quick playoff exit. On the bright side, the Bol Bol hype train has pulled into the station, and y'all better hop on for 2021.
8 Heat -- 42-25 The Miami Heat got off to a hot start in the bubble by getting a solid victory over the Nuggets. Some players needed some time to get their shot back, but it was Duncan Robinson and Bam Adebayo came out the gates firing. Shout out to Maple Dick (kelly olynyk) as well for scoring all 20 of his points in the 4th Quarter. It wasn't a great outing for everyone though with Herro having a tough night, but hopefully he'll get into the swing of things. He'll be needed if we want to be competitive against Toronto, Boston, and Milwaukee. I'm feeling pessimistic about our odds of winning more than 1 game out of those 3, but hopefully I'll get proven wrong by the team.
9 Thunder +1 41-25 On March 18, the Oklahoma City Thunder lined up to host the Utah Jazz, when a doctor rushed onto the court immediately before tipoff and announced that Rudy Gobert had tested positive for Covid-19, changing the sports world forever. 4 months later and a thousand miles away in Florida, that game finally happened and proved that as much as things changed, one thing remained the same: Oklahoma City delivered Gobert and the Jazz a massive L. One challenge facing the Thunder in their quest to maintain that momentum going forward will be the unavailability of 6th Man of the Year candidate Dennis Schroder, who has temporarily left the bubble to be with his family while his wife gives birth. Young 3-and-D wing Terrance Ferguson, who started prior to the emergence of Lugentz Dort, is also out with an injury, leaving Oklahoma City's guard rotation potentially thing. Look for Abdel Nader and Hamidou Diallo to pick up the minutes left on the table by those absences.
10 Jazz -1 42-25 Utah sure is missing Bojan Bogdanovic's shooting in the bubble. With Bojan on the mend after season-ending right wrist surgery, Utah's reserves look to step up to cover Bojan's absence, mainly Jordan Clarkson and Georges Niang. The Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert connection has been seen stronger on court this opening bubble week, with Spida feeding Gobert more often compared to earlier in the calender season, including a clutch game winning pass to Gobert to defeat the Pelicans last Thursday. With a loss to the Lakers last evening, the Jazz are hoping they find enough firepower to continue forwards through the rest of the schedule.
11 Mavericks -- 40-29 The hiatus did not solve Dallas' most glaring issue: closing out games. The frist two bubble games have provided for great TV, but unfortunately for Dallas, they have not been able to close close games and hold onto leads, something that plagued them all year dating back to the November matchup with the Lakers. Courtney Lee, Jalen Brunson, and Dwight Powell are not playing in the bubble due to injuries, and Willie Cauley-Stein is not in the bubble due to personal reasons. Trey Burke replaced WCS, and has impressed in two games. Dallas is likely locked into the 7 seed, so they may be destined to face an LA team. The Mavs' offense has been incredible for 42 minutes, but the Mavs must learn to close the final half of the fourth quarters in order to make noise in the playoffs.
12 Pacers +1 41-26 Indiana got off to a great start in the bubble; a win over the Sixers clinched the seasons series against Philadelphia, and moved them into a better position to compete for the fourth seed. TJ Warren has become Indiana's go-to offensive option this season, starting off the restart with a career-high 53 points. The Pacers are still dealing with some injury issues, as Victor Oladipo will be held out of back-to-back games, and reserve big man Goga Bitadzeh has yet to play. Worst of all, Domantas Sabonis has left the bubble with plantar faciitis, and there is no indication on when he will return. Still, Indiana is in decent position for the regular season finish with a relatively light schedule to start, and then two critical seeding games against Miami.
13 76ers -1 40-27 The turnover issue is still apparent. The backcourt disappeared in the 4th versus the Pacers. There's still a few games left to right the ship before the playoffs. At minimum this Bubble has brought us a youtube star in Matisse Thybulle.
14 Grizzlies -- 32-36 Almost every game right now is a playoff preview for this young team. With two disappointing losses to start off the stint at Disneyworld the Grizzlies are not giving themselves any advantages. Ja Morant and Jaren Jackson Jr. did hit some big shots against the Spurs but it was not enough.
15 Trail Blazers +5 30-38 Blazers started1-1 to pop the Bubbles...bubble? Both games marked by little defense on either end and huge offensive games from Lillard (30/16 vs Celtics, 29/9 vs Grizzlies). Not exactly a promising start versus a Celtics team that struggled from the field but a win against the 8th seed Grizzlies was necessary to keep the playoff hopes alive and well.
16 Magic -- 32-35 Pain.
17 Spurs +2 29-37 Pop giving into fans or development for LW5? He’s gotten the starts since the restart and is showing it was worth. Will need a few more games to see what’s what but SA is prime to miss the playoffs for the first time in 20 years.
18 Suns +3 28-39 Suns began their bubble 2-0 and will continue to go 8-0 and make the play-in game. You heard it here first.
19 Pelicans -4 29-38 The Pelicans have come out of the gate looking absoutely abysmal. There is no energy surrounding this team. After a stellar first half in the opening game against Utah they have played like the worst team in the bubble. A blowout against the Clippers have further solidified the Pelicans place as a 'Bubble Bottom Dweller', and the playoffs become further and further out of reach with every passing second. It would require 6 straight wins to finish out the seeding games, then 2 more straight against the eventual 8 seed just to reach the playoffs. And with Zion coming in out of shape, Lonzo in his head again, and BI giving up an 8 game win streak just to be swept by the Lakers doesn't seem like it is going to come to fruition.
20 Nets -3 31-35 The Nets are simply existing at this point. We will almost definitely make the playoffs and we will definitely get promptly escorted out of the bubble.The goal, as it was before the season, is to get through this without a major injury to our key/young players and look forward to next year with Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant at the helm.
21 Kings -3 28-38 Over in the Kings sub I predicted the Kings would be eliminated from playoff contention by March 10th.. I was just one day off... but it wasn't supposed to end like this.
22 Wizards -- 24-43 Wizards basketball is back, but without Beal and Bertans, I fully anticipate that the team will lose every single game they play in the bubble. That being said, guys like Rui Hachimura, Isaac Bonga, and Thomas Bryant have all shown flashes of potential, with Rui in particular showing that he can be relied upon as a #1 option without his efficiency taking too big of a hit. On the flipside, the veterans, most notably Shabazz Napier, have ranged from below average to downright terrible and are playing themselves out of new contracts. I'm excited for Rui's development, and that's enough for me to keep suffering through these losses.
23 Hornets -- 23-42 The Hornets are not a part of this bubble experience, which is really a shame. Our young guys probably could have benefitted from some more reps, looking toward next season. Regardless, this season was cause for some optimism, and we have an opportunity to improve through the draft. Also - I hope everyone reading this is safe and healthy. Take care of yourselves!
24 Bulls -- 22-43 Rumors of the new front office putting LaVine on the trading block is perhaps leading to another new Bulls era. Let's just say the best 'offseason' material we've had in some time is the Last Dance.
25 Hawks -- 20-47 The Hawks were left out of the bubble and we never got to see how Clint Capela fit into the team. All eyes are focused on the draft lottery and what piece we will add to our team that will probably end up receiving unwarranted criticism from our fanbase.
26 Pistons -- 20-46 The Pistons finally won a game against the Suns. But all the numbers are still awful, they blew a huge lead against the Kings and now Derrick Rose is hurt. The young guys will play, but it will probably continue to be a bleak end to the season.
27 Knicks -- 21-45 Frank Ntilikina's 20/10 game literally ended the NBA. Also we have Thibs now.
28 TWolves -- 19-45 All the best to KAT in these difficult times.
29 Cavaliers -- 19-46 It's probably kinda nice out in Orlando tbh.
30 Warriors -- 15-50 Klay's playing chess with Rocco. Curry had a good golfing outing in Tahoe and took up a new hiking hobby. GM Bob Meyers has said Warriors are prioritizing the back up PG position this offseason. Mean while Warriors are the latest native american mascot to be on the rebranding block according to Melo.

2020.07.27 12:45 Str8Outta2750 So what really happened? The Disappearance and Suspected Murder of Quanne Diec (Sydney, New South Wales, Australia - 27 July 1998)

Today (27 July 2020), on what marks the 22nd Anniversary of her disappearance - I've decided to post this case which, as a young person, got me interested in Missing Persons Cases in the first place. The case I refer to, is the disappearance; and suspected murder; of Quanne Diec - whom disappeared on her way to school, from the Western Sydney suburb of Granville, on the morning of 27 July 1998; aged just 12 years old.
Quanne (pronounced “Queenie”) has managed to remain in the consciousness of many Sydneysiders (and perhaps many Australians) over these past two decades. Her disappearance was headline news in Sydney at the time – with the New South Wales Police putting out a strong appeal to the public for her whereabouts. Quanne, to this day, has never been located – and is suspected as having been abducted and murdered.
The case remained cold for years – until November 2016, when a suspect, Vinzent Tarantino, walked into Surry Hills Police Station in Sydney to confess to Quanne’s abduction and murder. Tarantino (born Victor David Gerada), a person with a documented history of mental health issues, then recanted his confession, pleading Not Guilty and stood trial for charges relating to Quanne’s disappearance and homicide. He was acquitted by Jury on 6 November 2017 on all charges presented. Understandably, a controversial situation all round – and one which sadly brings Quanne’s case back to square one. So, what really did happen to Quanne?
Background and Case Outline
Quanne Diec was born in Sydney on 12 May 1986 (her Date of Birth has also been published as 12 July 1986), to Vietnamese refugee parents – Sam Nguyen Diec and A Muoi "Ann" Ngo, both of whom are of ethnic Cantonese Chinese-Vietnamese background, arriving to Australia in 1978; and had two older siblings - her brother Sunny; and her sister Tina.
The family lived in a single story dwelling, in Western Sydney suburb of Granville - which was a very working class suburb; and had been traditionally a predominately Anglo-Australian in its population; although it began to be characterised by a very strong Lebanese-Australian community (established mainly by refugees from the Lebanese Civil War) from the 1980's onwards. The suburb's refugee population is a result of it being not far away from what was the Villawood Migrant Centre (which since has become the Villawood Immigration Detention Centre). Her father owned and ran a small mixed-business (i.e. a convenience store) in the South-Western Sydney suburb of Casula.
Quanne had started high school at the start of 1998; enrolling at Strathfield Girls High School, located in the Inner-Western Sydney suburb of Strathfield, about 10 kilometres (6 miles) away from her home. During Term 1 of high school, she was driven to school every morning by her father. However, Quanne; beginning to seek her own independence; started insisting that she be allowed to travel to school herself, via train. Although both of her parents had concerns about this, they relented - allowing Quanne to walk by herself to Clyde Railway Station, then catch the train to Strathfield for school, from the start of Term 2 (Source: MamaMia via MSN).
Monday, 27th July 1998 started off in the Diec household as any Monday did. It was raining that morning; and was early into Term 3 of high school for Quanne. She got into her school uniform, packed her lunch, said goodbye to her sister Tina (who was still in bed), then her mother Ann leading her to the front door to see her off – Quanne then headed off, waving to her mother, whom watched until her daughter disappeared out of sight as she entered Factory Street (Source: SMH).
Quanne got as far as the Australia Post International Mail Centre (now known as the Australia Post Sydney Gateway Facility) – which is (according to Google Maps) about 350 metres (approx. 380 yards) from her home; and about 550 metres (approx. 600 yards) away from Clyde Railway Station. She was captured by one of the Mail Centre’s CCTV camera at approx. 7.43 am, walking up Factory Street. The same CCTV camera captured about eight seconds later, what NSW Police described as a “shadowy figure” whom appeared to be following Quanne. However, another CCTV camera located at the other end (Northern side) of the Mail Centre captured no image of Quanne – indicating she disappeared between these two points along Factory Street; and failed to make it to Clyde Railway Station (Source: SMH).
As her parents had assumed she made it to school; and conversely her school assumed her absence was due to illness – the alarm was not raised about her disappearance until that afternoon, when she failed to return home from school. Quanne was reported as Missing to Granville Police Station by her parents that evening, at around 5.00 pm.
NSW Police were prompt in putting out a public appeal for Quanne, with all mainstream media outlets within metropolitan Sydney covering Quanne’s disappearance as headline news. In the immediate days following, the NSW Police also set up a mannequin at Clyde Railway Station, dressed as Quanne at the time of her disappearance (wearing her Strathfield Girls High School uniform); and handing out flyers containing Quanne’s photo to rail commuters. Soon after, the NSW Police formed Strike Force Lyndey, to specifically investigate Quanne’s case.
Quanne’s case deeply resonated with the Sydney public; with the media continuing their interest and coverage of her case in the weeks and months following. The profile of her case reached such a point, it resulted in the highly unusual move of the then incumbent Premier of New South Wales, Bob Carr, announcing a an increase to the reward for information on her case, from $AUD100,000 to $AUD200,000 (normally, announcements regarding rewards are done by the senior hierarchy within NSW Police).
Publicly, it appeared that no promising leads regarding Quanne’s disappearance were forthcoming. However, an anonymous male caller phone the NSW Crime Stoppers Hotline, who gave information suggesting that the Police search the Duck River, which runs between Granville (on its western bank) and Auburn (on the east). (Source – via Tapatalk. Note – articles originally published by Australian Associated Press (AAP))
It should be noted there are two tributaries in the area named Duck – there is Duck Creek, which is largely channelised – but starts in the suburb of Guildford, flowing due North-East through to Granville, then into the Duck River at Clyde. The Duck River itself starts off from a series of drains in the suburb of Yagoona, flowing due north through or past the suburbs of Birrong, Sefton, Chester Hill, Auburn, South Granville, Granville, Clyde, Rosehill; and eventually into the Parramatta River at Silverwater.
However, it was the Duck River which became the focus of the investigation. On January 12 and 13 of 1999, the NSW Police, along with volunteers from the NSW State Emergency Service (SES), drained a 300 metre (approx. 330 yard) section of the Duck River around the South Granville and Auburn area – about 1.5 kilometres (or nearly a mile) south of the Diec family home. No human remains were found; and the items that were recovered from the river bed – as set of vehicle registration plates, a crowbar and items of clothing, were eventually ruled out as being connected to Quanne’s disappearance.
After the NSW Police concluded their search of the Duck River, the anonymous male caller again contacted the NSW Crime Stoppers Hotline, this time claiming the area which the Police covered in their search wasn’t the right area; and that they had missed vital clues. The NSW Police put out a public appeal in early February 1999 to the anonymous caller to contact them again – believing this person was connected to the case; and had further and vital information. However, it appears this person made no further contact; and no further searches of the Duck River were conducted.
Another lead in the investigation was the vehicle possibly involved in Quanne’s abduction. Some of the information which NSW Police released at the time, appears a little confusing. However one witness, a woman, reported to Police seeing a girl getting into a “Transit-type van” (presumably a large European bonneted van, such as a Ford Transit). NSW Police went as far as conducting hypnosis on this witness, in an attempt to jog her memory for further information – but to no avail.
It should be noted also, that Australia Post were using Ford Transit vans within their fleet at the time of Quanne’s disappearance – although these vehicles were generally painted red with Australia Post signwriting.
There was information from a witness, of a van seen in the area that morning, with a registration number starting with either “PAO” or “PAQ”. Police put forward an appeal for the owner of the van to come forward. Eventually, investigators did track down that vehicle – a Mitsubishi Express van, with the NSW Registration Number PAQ-205, belonging to a Communications Equipment company called Benelec (Images of Vehicle - Sources: Nine News, SMH). The vehicle was distinctive, in that it had prominent signwriting. However, their employee and driver of that vehicle – Victor Gerada, became a person of interest in this case.
Victor had grown up at Second Street, Granville – just off Factory Street and near where Quanne was last seen. Although he had moved from that address, his father Godwin was still living there; and he was still a frequent visitor. Prior to his employment with Benelec, he had been a nightclub bouncer – having worked at various venues, including within Sydney’s notorious red-light district of Kings Cross.
It has been reported, allegedly unbeknownst to the officers on Strike Force Lyndey at that point, that Victor Gerada was also concurrently under the witness protection program. Gerada, in his employment as a bouncer, had witnessed the gruesome aftermath of the notorious Blackmarket Café/Hellfire Club bikie murders, in the Inner-City suburb of Chippendale on 9 November 1997 (note – “bikie” being an Australian colloquial term for a “one percent” or outlaw biker). This crime can be read about further here – but in short, it was a dispute between the Bandidos and Rebels Motorcycle Clubs – resulting in the deaths of three Bandidos, in the basement of the Blackmarket Café Nightclub. Ultimately, Gerada was never called up to testify on the stand as a witness (Source: Daily Telegraph).
However, reports suggest that Gerada began living a very transient life from this point onwards; which also spiralled out of control due to his Post Traumatic Stress and deteriorating mental health. Possibly due to these reasons, it appears the investigation’s focus on Gerada – who would later legally change his name to Vinzent Tarantino (a homage to Hollywood director, Quentin Tarantino; and the character Vincent Vega from Tarantino’s film Pulp Fiction) – eventually waned.
Another potential sighting of the suspect vehicle (along potentially with the suspects), is by Quanne’s father. Sam Diec testified on the stand at Vinzent Tarantino’s trial (via the aid of a Cantonese interpreter) that he saw a white van, with two men inside, in their street that morning – which he felt was unusual, as their street was a dead end. He also stated that the van was “running very slowly and the driver was staring at me”, to which he felt “very strange” (Sources: SMH, 7 News via YouTube).
There was another person of interest, during the investigation, whom also allegedly drove a white van. The individual – whom is unnamed in media reports; and is now deceased – was a male employee of the Australia Post International Mail Centre; and was a Vietnam Veteran. This person was also brought to attention during Vinzent Tarantino’s trial – with both the Prosecution and Defence respectively making statements regarding him.
It was reported the Crown Prosecutor at the trial, Pat Barrett, had informed the jury regarding this person of interest, including alleged accounts by his former co-workers, that he reportedly made “revolting racist and sexist” remarks; and was described as being a “beast” and “smelly”. However, the Prosecution also stated about this POI, with regards to Quanne’s disappearance, that it was the “extent of anything implicating him in any way”. However, Tarantino’s barrister, Belinda Rigg SC, countered and argued there was “a reasonable possibility” that this individual was involved in Quanne’s disappearance.
Many shocking allegations and aspersions regarding this individual, arose during the course of Tarantino’s trial and reported in the media. This included accounts that he expressed a hatred towards Asians; and also openly expressed very lewd and deviant sexual views. On the latter, it’s alleged he stated having an interest in young girls and having “deviant views” on Asian women. It’s also alleged that he bragged about having sex with young Asian girls; and most disturbingly, openly discussed about what sexual acts/fantasies he wanted to perform upon girls aged between 10 to 12 years old (Sources: SMH here and here, News.com.au here).
It’s alleged this individual took leave from work, just after Quanne’s disappearance. Although there appears to be no published reports confirming this, it implies this person was working on the day of her disappearance. There are no other published reports or public statements regarding this individual being discounted as a person of interest in Quanne’s case.
There is also the account of a witness, named Romain Maas – who’s evidence was highlighted by the Defence during Tarantino’s trail. According to Mr Maas, he saw on the morning of Quanne’s disappearance - a man he described as “Lebanese-looking” leading an Asian girl across the road, whilst gripping her wrist. He claims to have been outside when he heard a shout or yell; and then heard the girl say “Help me” – the man who was with her then said “she’s my girlfriend”; with Mr Maas then deciding not to get involved (Source: SMH).
With regards to the original investigation, although Quanne’s case did remain in the consciousness of the Sydney public and continued to receive sporadic media attention, it appeared to have hit a brick wall and had gone cold. For 18 years, Quanne’s family had held hope that she was still alive and would eventually return home one day. They refused to move from their Granville home for this reason; and as practicing Buddhists, continued to pray for her return. Sam Diec even went as far as travelling to other parts of the country in the search for his daughter, following information of alleged sightings. That hope eventually came crashing down for the Diec family, when what appeared to be a major development happened.
The Confession, Arrest and Trial of Vinzent Tarantino
On Sunday, 20 November 2016, at around 3.40 pm in the afternoon, a man walked into Surry Hills Police Station – not far from the Sydney CBD. He presented himself, telling the officer on duty “I need to hand myself in for a homicide… it’s all been building up for me and it’s too much”. He was taken in by detectives, whom proceeded to conduct a formal interview – which took place just after 8.00 pm that evening.
This man would eventually declare during the interview, that he had abducted and killed Quanne Diec on 27 July 1998, claiming his motivation was: “… I was in a lot of debt and I had this stupid idea of ransom…”. He further elaborated: “It was a stupid ransom attempt and it went wrong and I just want to resolve it for the family and try and bring the girl home for her family… I was going to let her go and I just panicked". He claimed that he’d taken Quanne, whilst she was walking to Clyde Railway Station; and had strangled her – then had taken and buried her body in bushland to the south of Sydney (Source: ABC).
That man was Vinzent Tarantino (formerly Victor Gerada) – as mentioned above in the Background and Case Outline, had been a person of interest in the original investigation by Strike Force Lyndey. As previously mentioned, Tarantino’s mental health had deteriorated in the intervening years. He was still extremely paranoid that the Rebels Motorcycle Club were still out to get him, - as retribution for speaking to Police following the Blackmarket Café murders. He had changed his name, but also had moved addresses on several occasions due to these fears – and went to extreme lengths to conceal and distance himself from his past. His paranoia of the Rebels was still very strong, even at the time of his confession – stating to Police during his interview: “…now my partner’s been threatened with gang raping; and my father and brothers have been threatened to be killed in a contract killing” (Source: ABC).
However, Tarantino also experienced a number of mental breakdowns and psychotic episodes over the years; including violent outbursts and attempts of self harm and suicide. Some of these incidents also involved Police intervention, which resulted in violent confrontations. One such incident, Tarantino reportedly threw a Molotov cocktail at Police officers; and sprayed another officer with petrol (gasoline). He also reportedly had a violent alteration in 2006 with his then partner – after she found out he hadn’t disclosed the truth about his past to her (Source: SMH).
Even during presenting himself at Surry Hills Police Station, his mental health was still a topic. He was found to be carrying a 35 centimetre (13.78 inch) kitchen knife when he presented; which was apparently a pattern of Tarantino’s behaviour from his previous breakdowns. Tarantino was also charged with carrying an offensive weapon, in relation to the knife – which was dealt with separately to the charges he would face relating to Quanne; and which he plead Gulity to and received a conviction for (Source: Nine News via MSN).
Also whilst at the Police Station, one of Tarantino’s brothers called his mobile phone – his brother spoke to officers, warning them: "[he] has psychological issues and I'm worried about him".
Tarantino’s mental health and his paranoia of the Rebels, would be continuing themes throughout his legal proceedings.
Following the interview, Tarantino was informed by Detective Sergeant Wayne Plumeridge (the custody manager on duty at Surry Hills Police Station) that he was under arrest – Tarantino responded that he understood his arrest; and also allegedly stated “I’m a grub, I don’t deserve a trial”. Police proceeded to charge Tarantino in relation to the abduction (specifically – “detain for advantage”) and murder of Quanne; and was remanded in custody (Sources: SMH: here and here).
The following day (Monday, 21 November 2016), Tarantino faced Central Local Court in Sydney for a preliminary hearing. He did not apply for bail – and was formally refused bail. However, during proceedings, Tarantino made a remark in court, against his own solicitor’s advice: "I believe my brother … and my partner … have been murdered in retaliation for what I've done" – a statement which was untrue (Sources: News.com.au, ABC).
On that same day – NSW Police also conducted a forensic search of his father’s home in Second Street, Granville. Police also conducted a Press Conference, conducted by Superintendent Scott Whyte of the Rosehill Local Area Command. At this conference, Supt. Whyte stated that Tarantino had been a person of interest in this case; and also alleged that Tarantino told detectives information “…that only the murderer would know”.
On Wednesday, 23 November 2016 – Police took Tarantino, under guard, to a location he claimed to have buried Quanne. Tarantino had told detectives he had taken Quanne’s body to bushland, just off Appin Road in Bulli Tops – south of Sydney and just north of the regional city of Wollongong. He stated that he took Quanne’s body – initially leaving it in bushland a short distance from the road, but then returned, placing it into and moving it with a wheelie bin; and along with a shovel, a machete and a glass covered candle; found and buried it in a spot. Tarantino lead detectives on the search, which was filmed by Police – however, he seemed somewhat confused and disoriented of the location. After five and a half hours of searching, no remains or other evidence was located (Sources: Daily Telegraph, SMH here and here).
The NSW Police later conducted a second search for Quanne the following year – starting on 31 July 2017, over a three day period – in bushland within the district of Cataract, a neighbouring locality to Bulli Tops. Sam Diec was present at this search for his daughter; however again, Police were unsuccessful in locating any remains or evidence (Sources: ABC, Nine News).
A second formal interview was conducted by Police with Vinzent Tarantino on 28 November 2016, in which detectives attempted to obtain more specific details about the crime. It appears further clarification wasn’t forthcoming during this interview, however Tarantino did express that he felt terrible about what had happened (Sources: ABC and News.com.au).
Tarantino remained under custody, in remand – his committal hearing not commencing until early March 2018. However, Tarantino’s position changed during this period – he had recanted his confession and was now denying he had abducted and murdered Quanne. He would enter a plea of Not Guilty. His committal hearing (set down for five days), was conducted within the first week of March 2018 at Parramatta Local Court. Evidence was tendered by the Crown Prosecution – along with calling witnesses. A trial was set down, following the committal hearing – but it was another 18 month wait (Source: Nine News).
The trail commenced on 9 September 2019, in the NSW Supreme Court, with Tarantino pleading Not Guilty. The trail would last for two months. The Crown Prosecution’s case was that Tarantino had abducted, sexually assaulted and murdered Quanne; and that he confessed this crime to two ex-partners, a former friend; and to his own brother. The Defence argued that Tarantino did not abduct and murder Quanne and had made a false confession – motivated by his psychotic state and his belief the Rebels Motorcycle Club were still after him, believed he would be safer being in custody (Source: 7 News, SMH).
Tarantino and his Defence did agree that he was present in the area, on the morning of Quanne’s disappearance – and did pick up a female from Factory Street in his work van. However, the Defence claims that female, whom Tarantino allegedly picked up, was an adult sex worker, whom went by the alias of “Dee” (Source: SMH). However, no-one (Police, Prosecution or Defence) could not locate this alleged sex worker, to obtain a statement or call as a witness (Source: SMH). The Defence also argued there was “a reasonable possibility” that another person of interest, the Mail Centre worker (as outlined in the Background and Case Outline section above) was responsible for Quanne’s disappearance and murder.
Several witnesses were called up in the trail. All immediate members of Quanne’s family gave evidence on the stand – her parents Sam Diec and Ann Ngo, both of whom utilised the assistance of a Cantonese translator, along with her brother Sonny Diec and her sister Dr Tina Diec. Notably, Sam gave his eyewitness account of seeing a white van with two men in it, driving suspiciously in their street (as outlined in the Background and Case Outline section above).
The Prosecution also called witnesses, in regards to Tarantino’s alleged confessions. One was his ex-girlfriend, Laila Faily. Ms Faily testified that Tarantino confessed to her that he’d taken Quanne and ended up killing her, because “…she was making too much noise”. She also testified that she accompanied Tarantino on a drive to a National Park, in his van (stating that it had a “strange smell”) – and that he stopped the van and removed a wheelie bin from the back. Ms Faily also stated that Tarantino told her he had a fetish for “girls in school uniform” and asked her during sex “do you want me to do what I did to her?” (Sources: Nine News via MSN)
Tarantino’s barrister sort to discredit this witness, arguing inconsistencies in her previous statements. Also, Tarantino denied and took offense to Ms Faily’s evidence that suggested he had raped Quanne Diec, stating it was the “worst fabrication” (Source: News.com.au). Tarantino also now claimed the contents of the wheelie bin did not contain a body, but instead contained firearms, along with cocaine stored within a Tupperware container (Source: SMH).
Another witness was a former friend, Geoff Maurer – whom testified that Tarantino confessed to “taking an Asian girl”, but things went wrong and Tarantino, in his words, had “cancelled her out” (Source: MamaMia via MSN).
Evidence was tendered by the Prosecution, that Tarantino admitted years later to another ex-girlfriend, that he killed Quanne during a botched ransom bid (Source: MamaMia via MSN).
The Prosecution also tendered evidence, of a recorded phone conversation that Vinzent had with his brother, Allan Gerada – alleging he said: “I killed a kid Allan, I’m fucked” (Source: SMH).
However, Tarantino’s Defence contested that these confessions were “false”, which he made up in the belief he needed to do so protect his and his loved one’s lives (Source: MamaMia via MSN).
His barrister, Belinda Rigg SC, conceded that her client’s “world” was different to her own, and that although he was firmly of the view he “did not” have a mental illness, the jury could possibly conclude he was psychotic at the time of his confession – and advised the jury “You are required to consider another man’s mind” (Sources: SMH, ABC, Canberra Times).
Two forensic psychiatrists – Dr Andrew Ellis and Dr Adam Martin; and a clinical and forensic psychologist – Dr Katie Seidler, were called upon to give evidence regarding Vinzent Tarantino’s mental state. All agreed that he had likely suffered a mental illness for some time.
Dr Ellis tendered that Tarantino was most likely suffering a psychosis, at the time of his confession; and suggested a likely diagnosis of schizoaffective disorder. Dr Martin also tendered that Tarantino most like had either schizoaffective disorder or schizophrenia. Dr Seidler tendered that Tarantino became embroiled in a delusional thought system; and had struggled with “…a psychotic condition for almost two decades”. Dr Martin however conceded that neither he, nor Dr Ellis or Dr Seidler, had the opportunity to examine Tarantino before writing their reports, quipping “It’s all a bit speculative” (Sources: SMH, ABC).
Tarantino’s mental health state was also punctuated by his courtroom behaviour – frequently interjecting and making outbursts during proceedings. The presiding Judge, Justice Robert Beech-Jones warning Tarantino on his second day of evidence, after the jury left the courtroom – to “keep acting like that” if he wanted to convict himself and stating “I understand your outburst… This is not the place of outbursts” (Source: SMH).
The jury retired for deliberations on 29 October 2019 – with Justice Robert Beech-Jones discharging one juror; with the remaining 11 person jury proceeding to consider their verdict (Source: 7 News).
The jury returned on 6 November 2019 – delivering the verdict of Not Guilty on all charges relating to Quanne’s abduction and murder. Vinzent Tarantino was immediately released from custody by the Judge.
Tarantino made comments to the awaiting media outside of court, including criticisms of the media’s investigative journalism and not meeting their obligations to ‘seek the truth’ – but also made the comment to the media to “get their chequebooks ready”. He also accused the Police of ‘changing evidence’ in the case, which he claimed to have ‘proof’ of. Tarantino also made the allegation, regarding his role in the search at Bulli Tops: “Because I had a gun pointed at me in the back of the Correctional Services van. That happened” (Sources: SMH, Sky News via YouTube).
The Diec family were absolutely devastated by the verdict. The family held a press conference outside Granville Police Station. Quanne’s cousin, Christine Woo, broke down while delivering a statement on behalf of the family – the full video from 7 News (via YouTube) can be seen here.
My Opinion and Theories
Obviously, it is very sad and destressing that after 22 years, there is still no answer on what happened to Quanne. Her family – and especially her parents, Sam and Ann – have and still carry a lot of pain after all this time. At this point, it appears the investigation is at a dead end; and it’s difficult to see whether that answer will ever be found.
Firstly, my opinion is that Quanne was indeed abducted from Factory Street at Granville – outside of the Australia Post International Mail Centre; and forced into a van against her will. I also believe there was a sexual motivation to this crime – and sadly I believe that Quanne was unfortunately sexually assaulted before being murdered.
As to who actually did it – from my perspective, there does appear to be more than one person of interest in this case.
Keeping this short and sweet, I do not believe Vinzent Tarantino (owing to his mental health) or the Mail Centre worker (whom I suspect was actually inside the Mail Centre at the time) were responsible for Quanne's disappearance.
My opinion is, the two witnessed by Quanne’s father, Sam Diec driving suspiciously in a white van along Seventh Street, are the prime suspects. I’m also inclined to believe the eyewitness statement of Romain Maas too. As troubling as Mr Maas’ reaction to the events he encountered might be, the man he described as seeing – I’m inclined to believe was the passenger of the van that Mr Diec had earlier seen.
I’m inclined to believe these two men were local to the Granville area, or if not – had familiarity with it. I also suspect that Quanne may have been stalked in the days or weeks leading into her disappearance.
Regarding the location of her remains – and returning to that anonymous caller to Crime Stoppers, who gave the Duck River tip off - I’m inclined to believe the information that they gave maybe true. I don’t believe the caller is either one of those two men – although I do suspect the caller could be either a close friend, or a relation to one of, if not, both of the men.
Looking at Google Maps (here) and Street View, along with historical aerial images from the NSW Government’s Spatial Information Exchange (SIX) Viewer website (aerial image from 1998, here) – I think it's highly plausible that Quanne was disposed of in the vicinity of the Duck River, although my leaning is towards the parklands along the South Granville (western) side of the river, around the vicinity of Mackay Road, due to their relative seclusion – compared to the Auburn (eastern) side of the river. Perhaps Police were just slightly off looking in the right spot?
Alternatively, another possible location is a significant bushland reserve south of this locality, on the soutside of Wellington Road, to the west of Auburn Golf Course.
We can only hope however, that someone can be forthcoming with new information to the Police, that can not only identify and bring the true culprits to justice; but also finally locate Quanne. I hope she finally receives the proper and dignified farewell that she deserves; and that her family can finally have some peace.

2020.07.13 20:21 LearningIsListening A not-so-brief rundown of letters G-I in Jeffrey Epstein's 'Black Book'

Below is a rundown of letters G-I of Epstein's contacts. Last year, I wrote about letters A-C. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/cpis3n/a_brief_rundown_of_the_first_ten_pages_of_jeffrey/).
I also wrote about letters D-F on July 5, 2020. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/hlrba8/a_notsobrief_rundown_of_letters_df_in_jeffrey/). There are some misspelled names. Epstein entered their names like this.
I have bolded some of the more interesting connections and information, but there could be much more that I overlooked. I hope something here strikes an interest in someone and maybe we can get more investigations out of this. Please, if you know anything more about any of these people than what is presented here, post below. I am working off of the unredacted black book found here: https://www.coreysdigs.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/Jeffrey-Epsteins-Little-Black-Book-unredacted.pdf
G-I

2020.07.12 09:31 TriGlob Where was the Bernstein Bears name change first posted about? Who posted about it? And how does this relate to the DMT entities reported by many?

Who was the first post person to note the Bernstein bears name change? Where was it posted? Is there a screenshot of it? Who posted it?
Last time I posted I was simply proposing some possibilities, and a few questions, and I got told I was out of my mind. Well I can assure you I am quite IN my mind, and those weak kind of retorts show you have no balls to ask anything outside of the normality of these subs. Just because someone is asking some different kind questions makes you uncomfortable, it isn't my problem, grow tf up. Perhaps you have never heard of the Asch Conformity Experiment? Or are you Brainwashed?
Here is a link for the uninitiated. You should know about this fr. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TYIh4MkcfJA
It seems asking things even though the group is saying otherwise is alive and well, and groupthink is strong in the ME community. Don't say it isn't anything other than a quantumly immortal reality shifting simulation multi-world timeline... DUhhhhhh..... And to speak otherwise is blasphemic ME heresy! Be gone heathen!
You need to grab a bag o' herb and smoke a huge one! Maybe you'll chill out then. Last time I checked, that's what these forums are for, to propose ideas, and ask questions so we could maybe get a little closer to an answer, but it seems many out there do not care about the truth, and rather comment one-line lowbrow insults, that shows your mental ineptitude not mine. That user was totally trying to eviscerate my efficacy to ameliorate the onus this group has caused by its insouciance, but fuck me, right lol?
In fact, I do not think I have seen one post ever about red herrings being used against us in the ME community, and thus worthy of discussion. Go look at the main sub, and look at the fucking obvious voting manipulation. It is literally the most consistently downvoted sub I have ever seen on reddit. I have seen over 10 posts in a row with 0 upvotes, and you can tell me nothing is going on? Please. It is obvious there is some kind skullduggery afoot probably to muddy the waters, and to discourage the hunger of truth seekers from posting more and commenting more.
So, to the main reason for posting. I been thinking lately about the timeline of things. Like how 2012 was thrown out there so much, and yes I did experience subtle changes in my reality after 2012, but it took a while to notice. 2015-2016 was a game changer personally, at least as far as the ME is concerned. I know many of you out there feel me on that.
Let us look back. Fiona coined the Mandela Effect term in 2009.
Here is a copy of a comment I read from the main forum.
All the memories they were discussing of seeing news of his death were in the late 80s to early 90s and all the memories they were discussing of becoming aware he was still alive were between 1994 and early 2000s.
It was simply the conversation about this memory disconnect and realizing it happened to more than 1 of them that occured in 2009.
First collisions were achieved in 2010 at an energy of 3.5 teraelectronvolts (TeV) per beam, about four times the previous world record per wikipedia.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Large_Hadron_Collider
LHC did not officially come online until 2010, yet here are people noticing something changed back in the mid to late 90's. Hmmm. Remind me why again Cern is like the number #1 favorite for the cause? Like I posted before it was Cern's Happy video ft Pharrell Williams that, at the very least played a part in convincing some Cern was involved somehow. Groupthink then took hold, and many people simply ran with it without looking further. They didn't surreptitiously include Mandela's prison number for no fucking reason, but who the hell knows? Looks like Pharrell ain't saying shit that's for sure. Where's Ja when we really need him?
Who first posted the Bernstein change? Where was it posted? Does anyone have any screenshots or images proving this? Any links? Who started the Bernstein ME memetic cascade? I sincerely would love to see anything, which I never have.
As much as I absolutely hate using them, here is the gaggle trends data.
https://trends.google.com/trends/explore?date=all&geo=US&q=berenstein,Berenstain
Who started the Dolly ME? Where was the first post concerning this change? Reddit? 4chan? Somewhere else? If so, where? The Bernstein one is the one I am focusing on though, but I am curious about both of these. I'll admit I was involved in the Dolly ME, no doubt I also opened it up to many many people(last time I checked it was 25,000 views), but it didn't start with me.
How did you cope with the ontological shock? Ontological shock being defined as the state of being forced to question one's worldview? The ME can totally do that huh? The importance of this statement cannot be understated, how big that can be on an individual.
Psychological flexibility refers to the extent to which a person can cope with changes in circumstances. Typically refers to times when stressors or unexpected events occur, requiring a person to change to their stance, outlook, or commitment. Well, the ME will definitely test your psychological flexibility, and at the same time show you who isn't psychologically flexible. The true victims of the ME are probably the most psychologically flexible people there are, as we've had our worldview ripped asunder, and many struggle to cope with the changes.
Why do we in the ME community know in our hearts this is a big deal(having the same wrong memories as others)? One reason not spoken about very much relates to DMT. Allow me to explain.
Here is an alright video about a Survey of Entity Encounter Experiences with N-N-dimethyltryptamine MAPS Canada Journal Club. It's clinical in its presentation, like the dude has never done DMT, which I find hilarious because too many of these suit types nerd out on something they have never tried, and they are gathering their data from trip reports posted by people like me which I also find funny.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NDmm0qmLujk
So how are DMT and the ME connected? Well, if you have ever been lucky and brave enough to try it, and I mean really try it, meaning 20-100 trips. You will realize some things because you start to see some consistencies.
Let me skip to a certain part in the DMT survey video, it will help explain better what I am getting at here. It's something else not many discuss.
https://youtu.be/NDmm0qmLujk?t=575
Here in this section of the video, the presenter speaks of entities seen whilst on N,N,DMT. Now, many psychonauts report consistent interactions with entities on high doses of DMT. These entities are fairly consistent in their appearances, and archetypal form. This includes gnomes, fairies, mantis, jesters, etc. One a side note, I have seen an archetypal entity that I have never seen reported before, perhaps I shall make a post about it sometime, I'm sure I can't be the only one to see this archetype but I have never seen it reported.
Now, what makes the reported sightings so important, especially if you have seen them personally is that if you know that others are seeing the same thing, there is something bigger going on here. The reports include more than simply entities to, such as the jimjam, and other things, these are consistently reported meaning there is more here going on than simply some hallucinations in one's own mind, and these are actual dimensions we are seeing once we access them with this technology(DMT).
In consideration of these reports of the same memories being affected amongst people who do not know each other, this is evidence to something going on with the ME, and warrants further study. Why are we remembering the same thing being different is the important question here, in the same vein as to why people report seeing the same things on DMT?
So I ask again. Who started the Bernstein ME? Can anyone provide any screenshots, posts, or comments that show where this one took off? I am not disputing this effect,as I experienced it for sure, as well as more than just the effect itself. I have a childhood story relating to this ME, so I know the veracity is legit, but I'm bugged by the fact I can't find where this started.
Any of you out there done DMT and experienced the ME as well? If so, you'll know the significance in the fact these affected memories are same across many different people.
The People who saw the Mandela death report it happening back in the late 80's to 90's, and then about a decade later figuring out their memories don't match reality. I think something happened in the late 80's.
Remember. Great minds discuss ideas, and small peon weak brains drive-by comment talking shit, and then run off like the little bitch they are. Oh and I Don't Worry about those downvotes, bring it on bitch.

2020.07.07 01:56 Dungeon_Dice JoJo's Bizarre Adventure OC Tournament #5: Round 1 Match 25: Arthur and Tracy Vs Bang and Wrenn

The results are in for Match 23. The winner is…
Inch Nine, with a score of 66 to Art Jolson’s 57!
Category Winner Point Totals Comments
Popularity Tie 15-15
Quality Black Hill Estate 22-20 Reasoning
JoJolity Black Hill Estate 19-12 Reasoning
Conduct TEAM 10-10
The eccentric stranger had proven somewhat of a threat in a fight, but in the end, Inch Nine managed to make it out in one piece, still standing, even if hurting a lot in the process, and certainly going to get that goddamn jacket for Ian she came here for in the first place. After processing her thoughts, she realized with some abhorrence.
Did I… Seriously beat someone half to death over a rubber duck? With the host having long since had the box closed, and even wheeled away in the chaos, her mind had eased slightly, realizing the absurdity of such a thing, and yet, thinking back upon it, could still only find appealing ideas of the lovely little yellow fella. Cairo Satori… What the hell are you up to?
As she quietly contemplated this, with a flourish of some installed confetti and smoke effects, Cairo and ‘Peach Pit’ emerged again, looking eager to give their congratulations to Inch. “Alright, you did it, nice job,” they started, and as they approached, several differently-clad anime-looking boys emerged from the shadows at their gesture, dragging Art away. “Don’t worry about him, yeah? Like I said, I’ve spared no expense on getting a damn good healer on staff just for this. So if he can’t make it through something like that, you know who to sue for malpractice!”
“Not like that’s gonna happen, or that you’d need to worry about it if it was,” Peach Pit added. “We’re really sorry about having to drag you into that, but it’s not like a fight wasn’t going to happen anyways. We just made sure it could happen safely, yeah?” The stand shrugged and gestured out at the state of the store overall. “Nobody died, all the damage is covered on insurance, and uh- you get to take that jacket home for free, completely unstressed about whether or not you’re gonna find yourself in a fight where something big is actually on the line?”
Cairo cleared their throat and stepped in front of the stand, trying to keep the focus away from the fact that they’d just fabricated a brutal fight, regardless of how safe it was or how fated anyone was to come to blows in the first place. “Uh, right! Obviously it’s unfortunate that it played out like this, and I’d like to apologize again, but before you go, um,” They just looked you over for a second before continuing, “Just in case, I should ask, are you good to leave without getting patched up too?”
Two experts in their field, masters of muscle and electricity, are currently engaged in perhaps the pettiest and strangest variant of the trolley problem to date, and as of when this match goes up there is still about a day to vote in that!
Narration:
Mr. Jones had been utterly brazen in his flouting of his favor with the fates, hijacking a bifrost server and livestreaming the fight for their lives which Manta Malaise, Casey Jones, and many others struggled for their lives against him, and those few who had seen this video had with them some hope that, with Jillian Heart writing a truly in-depth article about the experiences of herself and the other survivors, utterly exposing him, even if Manta Malaise had spared his life, he would face some justice.
Yet before the night was up, Miss Palmer, his accomplice, had turned herself in, confessing to everything which the pillar of the community had done as Conqueror Worm, and bringing with her evidence which even the Stand-authorities of the city needed to consider: she had, just before it would be needed, developed a Stand, [Dresden Dolls], which could allow her to create a strong animated facsimile of any humanoid form of any size, albeit a hollow, fragile one, which could store anything.
Most believed the story published by the Fortuna Hermod, rather than its competitor which employed Jillian, and those who saw the truth for what it was were deeply frustrated. One took it the hardest of all, but they were not the sort to break.
They would fight.
Scenario:
Two young men sat in a convertible, admiring their shiny new helmets, part of their silver, eye-design-plastered ensemble that would make up the new body armor of their neighborhood watch association, as they drove up to a house in West Aurelio, seeing a father and son play with a basketball hoop in their driveway before a small house. Their little game was interrupted by the sound of a horn honking, both backing away in a mixed apprehension which, in a short time, had become learned.
“Afternoon, Finger Family!” One of the motorists said, stepping out of the vehicle and resting the hand on the stun baton which sat at his hip. He had on his half-exposed face a grin, feeling like some of the favorite pop cultural icons of his which he’d always taken at face value.
“Fuck do you kids want now?” The father said, stepping before his son and attempting to make himself taller. “Don’t you ever patrol anywhere else?”
“Hey, Neighborhood Watch has to go where we’re needed! And this neighborhood, on this side of the river…” He waved his baton about, and the man tried not to flinch. “Well, there’s always infractions here to find. Our own founder, you know, a murderer was right under his nose… You can’t trust anybody anywhere these days, and danger could be lurking in any unassuming house.”
“Or you might be trying to burn evidence, like that old manor!” The driver added, before gesturing to their living room window. “Yet I see the curtains closed… Totally un-drawn, so nobody can see in your house. And I know what you’re going to say, ‘but your Watchliness, our house is so messy, we can’t see in!’ Well, that’s an infraction too, you know, unpresentable living rooms… So you’re normalizing something that lets people like Miss Palmer get by unscathed, AND you’re not living up to the town beauty standards!”
“Fuckin’ curtain rules now, are you serious?” The Finger father stepped forward, as if daring the man half his age to try some shit, “you’re gonna start dressing like Robocop or some shit, go actually bother somewhere it matters? I didn’t bust my ass to get this house so some kid playin’ army can scare half the damn neighborhood away!”
The man was wise enough not to advance within stunning range, simply gesturing at the ‘for sale’ signs at the abandoned buildings on either side of him, but the armored guy was both terrified and power tripping anyway, and began to rush at him, swinging his baton.
It swung, and only hit the armored boy square in the jaw, shocking him, sending him reeling back into the rapid descent of a black and orange motorcycle from a nearby tree, landing atop him on its single front-facing wheel.
Bleeding from his mouth, helmet half-knocked off, the cruel boy whimpered, realizing what a weight seemed precariously balanced atop his chest, staring eye-to-obscured eye into the dark glass of a motorcycle helmet’s visor.
“H-heheh, hey, I was just… Just trying to scare him a bit!” The coward waved his hands, “teach him not to fuck with us you know? I wasn’t really gonna hit him don’t be a fucking psychopahtHAAAGHHH!” The bike was revved, and the front wheel spun and spun and spun, and then the bike seemed to speed off and away, leaving him barely alive and his shiny new armor cracked.
The son, who had been watching this all in silence, instinctively recording with his phone, traced it all as the other Watch member did not hesitate to drive away, only for his back wheels to seem to start revving in opposite directions from the front, then jerk the car into its side as the cyclist drew closer.
Father Finger, meanwhile, just sighed, moving to walk into his house. Where the hell is the neighborhood going..? Makes me wonder what I ever saw in this place. And if my kids were out here alone… goddamn curtains, swear to god…
Aurelio Precinct - Suburbs
Compared to the more elaborate offices of VALKYRIE, or the various Downtown PD, the building where Chief Churchyard and Inspector River worked was a small, one-story affair, featuring a lobby, a pair of bathrooms, two holding cells, a visiting room, and a moderate-sized office space/equipment locker mix. Some of the cramped areas reminded Arthur Lifeson and Tracy Von Kehr of the little cramped spaces underneath their strip mall base, full of unique and elaborate secret entrances.
“There art killers in our midst…” Arthur had explained to Tracy when he dragged her out for backup. “We were none the wiser to Remix’s fell nature until he was out of our midst, and now, an innocent woman has fallen into distress whilst the word of another true killer is out there. We must away with her and unearth the truth!”
“Innocent, I would not call her, when Miss Palmer did this willingly…” Tracy mused with her typical smile, “but, semantics. Yes, it doesn’t sit right with me either, the lived experiences being ignored for a twitter confession, and she might know how it is that happened. And the two of us, I think, could extract the truth from her.”
They were blocked at the entrance, though, not just by the androgynous-looking bespectacled brunette in an ‘inspector’ badge boredly minding the reception desk, but by the utter giant impossibly squeezing himself through the doorways, looking the pair over through his sunglasses as he towered over them both. Chief Churchyard, Suburban Regalia had come to know him as by now, and by now they had thought him little a threat, but here, there were bags under his eyes big enough to be seen through his shades, and stubble had graced his face.
“We’re not letting visitors in to see Palmer. If that’s what you want, go away.” Church was either sharper than they had seen before, or guessed lucky.
“I’ve got this,” Arthur assured, stepping forward, chest puffed, “good sheriff, I am a knight in my own right, and I seek to do a justice above our jurisdiction, and-”
“You’re another one of those types who believes Jill Heart’s story, huh?” Churchyard asked, grumbling a frustrated interruption. “Mr. Jones is… I know, he’s a complicated guy, but right now, he’s hurting more, more vulnerable, than ever. He couldn’t even bear to keep his post here, had to take some time off, entrusted it to me… And the last thing he did before his time off? In this time of finding out the woman he was dating killed dozens of people and tried to frame him for it? Last thing he does is try to ramp up the security of his neighborhood watch, increase rules for them to enforce, give them more equipment so they can be safe from people like that.”
That only concerned both Stand Users more, and so Tracy asked, not fully trusting Arthur not to do something rash, “of course, of course, but still… There are mysteries to unearth, which require people of our ‘persuasions,’ you know? If people need protecting from those like this Aurelio killer… We can surely be of use getting into the mind of the guilty party?”
“…prove it, then.” Churchyard said, producing a phone and a blurry camera photo that had been sent to him. “You saw that video that went up, right? Of the ‘Black Angel’ retaliating hard against two Watch members…” Arthur and Tracy nodded, both recognizing the video in question. “Those guys were being jackasses, I can’t deny that. You give power-tripped teenagers weapons and some meaningless post and just watch ‘em abuse it to every level they can… I know they’re mad at the world but that doesn’t mean they can put two kids in the ER!”
Tracy and Arthur exchanged looks, having caught something, and then Arthur spoke, stepping forward, “so you say this citywide vigilante has sent two power-tripping, powerless guardsmen to your apothecary… Are you asking us to do your king’s justice when we do not bow to him?”
“This ain’t about loyalty, or Mr. Jones, or anything like that. I’m just holding this post as a favor to a good friend who’s helped me out of a lot of binds, and nobody has a lick of respect for me so I can’t rein them in, but… But the Angel’s gonna kill someone like this, go extreme, or get the wrong crowd on their back. So, uh… Track ‘em down for me, yeah? I want to make sure they know that just because you’re fighting evil doesn’t make you good, alright? And, uh… If you do get ‘em to stop, say it was because of me, yeah? Maybe these fuckin’ kids will pay attention when I speak if I’m actually responsible for something more than yelling a lot. Here, uh, Mr. Jones even left me the keys to his favorite sports car, said to keep it for my troubles. But I think you’ll need it more, to catch up with a bike like that…”
“Well, then,” Tracy answered, still not quite sure she trusted the intentions of this man, but well aware that he was useful enough to them to accept on her and Arthur’s behalf, “consider us deputized, if it gets you to stop this, and gets us a conversation with Miss Palmer.”
Captains All Country Club - Hole 18
An elderly giantess swung her Iron, and the Par 5 hole was conquered in a single stroke. Superintendent Anastasia, clad in a sweater vest, visor cap, and her usual hand-shaped sunglasses, produced a pair of binoculars and glanced towards the green, nodding and huffing as she flexed with the club. “A hole in one… No matter the sport, I’ve still got it. Could still go pro if I could leave this place.”
The two young men, each outwardly polite and hiding baggage in their own ways, simply stood in silence, neither caring much for golf, but still more than a little impressed and intimidated by the sight. Still, though, neither had come here for this, and it was the longer-haired, sweater-and-skirt-clad of the pair who spoke up to this end first. “Yes, nice job, Superintendent! But of course you didn’t call us out here just to watch you play a perfect run of golf, right? You didn’t have us come all the way out here on a summer day just for that, right?” Wrenn Aflight’s voice was sickeningly high and sweet and brimming with passive-aggression and contempt for the heat.
Bang “Boogie” Bronson, meanwhile, was trying to be quieter, more polite, even as his own frustration and discomfort grew. Wrenn had barely ever interacted with anyone on the team, mostly off in his own little self-important world, a world which Bang was still not sure he wanted any part of as he looked over him and the way he carried himself. Yet for some reason, when it was announced the Aurelio school district Superintendent wanted to talk to friends of Casey Williams, Wrenn had actually up and volunteered to come along… Still, he was trying to figure out why. “If it… Isn’t any trouble, ma’am… We’ve got a lot on our plates too… You asked. You asked for us because of Casey, right? Which means, really, you asked for us because of something to do with M-Mister…”
“With Mr. Jones, yes, but also no,” Anastasia said, heading towards her golf cart (Bang and Wrenn had been riding in it and could barely keep up with her foot speed), fishing through her bag and producing two pieces of hard candy, “and I apologize for spending so long waiting to start talking… When sports are on the mind, that’s where the mind goes. Here, have some candy as an apology, alright?”
Bang watched as Wrenn offered a sweet, “thank you~!” and then mimed putting it in his mouth without even unwrapping the plastic, convincingly swallowing as it disappeared down his large sleeve. Bang’s refusal, meanwhile, was more blatant. He almost had before Wrenn refused, and after all, he wasn’t a kid. He locked eyes with Anastasia, popping open his vodka and taking a massive swig.
That made her grin, actually. “Hahah! My grandson did exactly the same once, when I crashed one of his parties to embarrass those teens out of a brain cell killing good time… Always the self-assured one, Taylor.” Then, she removed her sunglasses, showing to them the tiredness in her eyes, and her smile faded again. “Have you seen that latest video going about, of the Black Angel fighting two Watch members?”
“I have!” Wrenn, more comfortable speaking right now as Bang stewed in backfiring embarrassment at his attempt at maturity power plays, recalling the recording, “and I remember someone dressed just like that, motorbike and all, driving through a puddle right next to me… It almost ruined my favorite sweater! Really inconsiderate, don’t you think?”
“I’ve always sort of hated Mr. Jones, what he was doing… But I tried to be civil nonetheless, and focus on what it was we had in common. Love for the spirit of volunteering, of showing that there is more to life than financial success. I let myself overlook every red flag he had, and never thought that he might be killing people… And I don’t buy a word of the stories saying it was Miss Palmer. She’s not smart enough to concoct plans like this, and I trust the resolve and word of Jillian Heart,” Anastasia said, pausing soberly. “That ‘Watch’ of his focused so much on West Aurelio, the poorest parts of our town, and now, after that little controversy, suddenly they have military-grade equipment, and they’re ramping that up worse than ever, bullying people to the point where they’re selling their homes to get away from it… There are some ideas which are truly toxic, and that man has poisoned this town and gotten away with it.”
Bang trembled as Anastasia spoke, trying to maintain his stiff look as he heard her out, wondering if it was truly impossible for certain viewpoints to coexist, yet at the same time, still trying to process all that had happened himself. He had a traumatic past with Manta Malaise, and yet they had helped save his dear friend Casey’s life, along with all those others… And then, presumably, went and spared Mr. Jones’ in turn. “What does… What does this have to do with that ‘Angel?’”
“People like you two are ‘fated’ to run into people like them, right? So… Track them down for me, yes? And let them know, no matter how dour things turn, how dire things get in this town… ‘Don’t turn your back on the town. You have friends, allies, and those who also can see the way things are going.’” She moved to put her club away, then handed Wrenn an electronic car key. “Take this, alright? It’s to that auburn sports car in the parking lot. I was going to give it to my grandson for his graduation, but… You will need it if you’re to catch up with the Angel, I’m sure.”
Wrenn, for a moment, was conflicted, his sole interaction with this ‘Angel’ having been an unpleasant one, but seeing the look of need and pain in this old woman’s face, he couldn’t bear to say no to her, trying his hardest to rationalize some way to make this pragmatic. Eh, he would retroactively find one later. His hand closed around the key. “We’ll do what we can!”
“Thank you.” Anastasia smiled. “This has been a delightful afternoon… And perhaps my last one here. If they don’t revoke Mr. Jones’ membership, I’m turning in mine. Even if he gets off scot-free, I am through associating with men like him.”
Later, in town…
“This car is… Pretty cool, I have to admit,” Bang mused aloud, sitting in a parking lot as he and Wrenn downed their takeout, parked with the motor running in a random plaza. “Kinda wanna see how fast this baby can go… You know, on open road.”
“Well, maybe we’ll get our chance to,” Wrenn answered, sounding more relaxed still, yet paradoxically in a forced way. “We just have to hang around until we hear word of this ‘Angel…’ It probably won’t be too far behind trouble if they’re in the area, right? And I’ll give them a piece of my mind when we’re being heroes!”
“OH GOD IT’S THE BLACK KNIGHT”
“HE’S JUGGLING EXPLODING CARS HELP US”
That shouting from a few blocks away, certainly, piqued the curiosity of the pair, the sound of frightened calling, vandalizing explosions, and a roaring motorbike calling them towards the scene in question, swerving past people panicking to find already the aftermath of a Stand Battle, albeit a brief skirmish, between a figure on a motorbike and a grown-ass man armored and riding a scooter, standing amidst the wreckage atop his ride and declaring, “FOOLISH! I am not the legally dead Black Knight Penitentiary Album. I… am the DEATH KNIGHT PENITENTIARY ALBUM!”
After a few seconds, the giant scootered away. “And know this is NOT over, Angel! The death never dies! Unlike the very dead black knight, who I! AM! NOT!”
“A new dark knight, right after the last one died..?” Bang questioned, his tone making his joking intent unclear. “I guess… Penitentiary Album had his fans…”
“I’m sure,” Wrenn remarked dryly, skeptically, before pointing out the obvious: after that strangely brief battle, to the apprehensive cheers and watchful eye of the crowd (and zero help from the armored neighborhood watch member drinking at the booth in the wrecked sports bar), the dark-clad motorcyclist immediately sped off towards the Northern road out of town. “No need to think about that, though!”
Elsewhere, parked behind the building, Tracy grinned at the sight of the Angel driving away from the battle scene. “Ah, yes, I knew the ‘Death Knight’ would draw them out for a fight… but they realized the diversion quickly. Sharp one. Now to see where the ‘Angel’ flies.”
“We’ve more to worry about than that,” Arthur declared, gesturing at the sports car tailing them, “it seems someone else seeks to quarrel with this Angel… But be they friend or foe? Hark! Forward is the only way we may learn!”
North of Aurelio lays the single paved road to lead, technically, out of the city, though it is a pass through frigid mountains in which, no matter the time of year, a layer of snow always seems to be upon it. The road is uneven, ill-maintained by those with no reason to believe they shall ever leave by it, and only the most expert of drivers even stand a chance of surviving the effort to drive through it… And even they, in turn, cannot make it out still.
Due to its nature, location, and the frequency of automobile deaths in these mountains, the pass is known by the people of the Metropolitan area as the “Middle Finger” of the city.
Arthur could see his breath before him, moving to crank the heat on the car as Tracy fired up the wipers. “This is where they’ve retreated to..? This dank tarn, I feel we’ve passed it once already.”
“We’re being led in circles,” Tracy agreed, “but this, isn’t so bad… We will learn this area with dental precision, odd bumps and all. Just keep watch for any trouble.”
Bang shivered slightly, cranking up his own car’s heat, then noting Wrenn looking at him in the corner of his eye, asking, “you cold, Bang? You should try getting nice puffy clothes like this… This sweater’s super cozy!”
“I’m… F-fine,” he said, defiantly, taking a sip from one of his flasks, “this will keep me warm… Just. Just focus on the road.” He tried to look at Wrenn, then turned his attention towards the rearview mirror. “We’re still being followed. So no way these are just people trying to… F-find the road North.”
The cars continued after the Black Angel, however, even as they were led in circles by someone who clearly knew this area so much better than any of them, trying to formulate how they would get into touch with someone who had to know they were being pursued. None of these rides were even teasing their top speed in this snow, but eventually, at the highest point of the pass, they started to drive down a wood bridge so frequently ignored before, the easiest way back South into town, generally considered sturdy, reliable enough, but as the others approached, they looked to one side in alarm, and to the confusion of everyone, took a hard veer off of the bridge.
“Hmmm?” Wrenn.
“Why is-?” Tracy.
“A trap!” Arthur.
“…” Bang.
Regardless of their words, soon after, it became apparent what had prompted the retreat attempt: something further along the bridge had somehow downed it, the entire thing was plummeting to uselessness before them, and neither car was thin enough like a motorbike to try and turn around. Before they could even hope to back away, they were falling, and they were screaming, the quick-thinking parts of their brains thankful, at least, that there was a definite section of road beneath them instead of sharp, steep mountain or frigid lake.
As they plummeted, both parties needed to duck, large pieces of bridge coming at their car in the winds fast and hard enough that the entire tops of their car, sans windshields, were shredded away, leaving the expensive cars topless but the drivers miraculously alive. Meanwhile, on the road beneath them, the figure sped by again, the outline of something else emerging beside it.

As the Angel drove by, the snow-obscured form pointed up at the underside of their cars, and some noise was drowned out by the whirring of motors as they sped off and away again down the road, the teams feeling something repeatedly impact the bottoms of their cars.
Miraculously, both cars landed completely upright on the road just below them, and though the riders were shaken by their descent, and the bridge completely gone, they were unharmed, and able to keep riding, Wrenn the first to do so, followed shortly after by Suburban Regalia.
“Halt, ‘Angel!’ You will answer for what you have done!” Arthur called out as the lot advanced, turning towards Tracy. “You can keep pace, yes? I have a feeling the knaves before us do quarrel with us. They stand in our way, and so, the knightly thing to do is to cut them down, should they raise their Stands to our own!”
“Ja, of course, of course,” Tracy answered, grinning and tightening her grasp on the wheel, “you are the one who needs your hands more right now… This perilous road, it could kill any clumsy motorist who tried to dare it, but not I! Not us! I am an expert, precise and skilled, and I’ve faced mouths thrice as exciting as this road.” And then, as a last-ditch effort at piece, she called, “hey, kids, pull over! We have work to do!”
“Ohhh, just lo~ovely,” Wrenn remarked aloud to his partner, looking behind them with his Stand, “those guys are after the Angel, too! So now, for helping that old timer, we’re out here in the middle of nowhere, and we’re gonna have to fight ‘em off just because she asked nicely! Isn’t that swell?”
“Y-yes, it seems that’s their intention.” Bang shivered from the cold. “And… I don’t know a lot about what’s happened here, but this Angel, the way they fight and act… They’re standing in the way of something relentless, something terrible.” Through Wrenn’s passive-aggressive frustration, Bang silently felt his impression of him changing. Regardless of all that griping and grumbling, he still was not hesitating to help this person, even if it meant fending off other probable Stand Users in altitudes and temperatures like these. Regardless of all that, now wasn’t the time to be caught up in his polite demeanor, narrowing his eyes and feeling his cold body warmed through the heating of his blood and pumping of his heart. “Let’s wreck these two.”
The Masters, the Regalia, and the Angel sped up.
OPEN THE GAME!
Location: A perilous roadway mountain pass in the Northernmost outskirts of the city. A layer of thin snow covers everything, but enough of it has been cleared away that you can at least tell reliably where the road is… And boy, is this road a pain in the ass. Sections of it have literally fallen away due to disrepair and insufficient attention, leaving only a snowy ravine under a naturally-formed ramp of sorts, which you will need to speed over to reach the next section of road, and you get turned around so easily that you are driving around in circles. At the start, MFAs are 30 meters ahead of SR, and 30 meters behind the Black Angel. Players are in high-end sports cars which have recently been accidentally made into convertibles, with starting drivers being Tracy and Wrenn. There is a significant drop between the Southwesternmost pieces of the road, the remains of what was supposed to be your bridge out of here instead creating an incline which gives you more than enough space to reliably stunt-jump the twenty meter drop between that and the ‘starting point’ of the road below.
Now, while the road layout is quite similar to a course many would know as “Polar Pass,” it isn’t necessarily completely 1:1 with its namesake. Booster pads aren’t a thing, and where marked with down arrows, only a very steep, bumpy drop down the mountain awaits. The shingled green section of the map represents sections of mountain at steep, roughly 85 degree angles, 25 meters high, the brown strip represents a wooden plank bridge, and the blue represents freezing cold water from a mountainous pond. The grey section represents a section of road underneath a section of natural rock tunnel. At most points in the stage (such as the start), the road has enough lanes to account for up to three cars’ widths, with sections like the bridge thin enough to only handle one. Also unlike the original track, none of the sections of road are iced over - someone has cleared those up for safe traversal, though there are no guardrails literally anywhere.
Goal: RETIRE your opponents!
Additional Information: These cars have tires properly suited for driving in deep snow, and can take insane amounts of abuse, even if individual pieces of them can be destroyed - you can literally be down to a wrecked chassis, and it will still operate and not fall apart; can’t speak much for the safety or comfort of such a thing, though. They have decent handling, and can also reach a maximum speed of 250 miles per hour in 20 seconds, but actually achieving and maintaining anything close to such speeds on most of these turns and in this weather is inadvisable (we won’t knock your jojolities for not constantly hitting near-250). Both player parties are moving at 60 mph at the start of the match.
The sheer adrenaline and peril of this situation has granted all four player characters a 4 in Stunt Driving - out of want to not become a splatter in the snow, every single player character is a truly amazing driver, but to do anything truly impossible would still require some ingeniousness from their other abilities.
The Black Angel, meanwhile, is running something resembling the WR for the original track. Generally, they are absolutely masterful at dodging attempts to attack them, masterfully swerving out of the way of such efforts. They won’t actively antagonize either team.
If ever one car is knocked off of the track or flipped over and unable to recover, five seconds afterwards, it will suddenly be lifted back into the center of whatever section of road is the closest, at a shaky but reliable B Speed - any damage sustained to the vehicle or its occupants by the fall in that time still will have happened, however. If you’ve played a kart racing game and fallen out of bounds, you know how this works. If an active attempt to harm the Black Angel is made, the guilty team will no longer receive this aid.
Team Combatant JoJolity
Masters of Funky Action Bang “Boogie” Bronson “I beg your pardon, Mr. Joestar, but I’m perfectly aware of what I’m doing. I’m not an idiot.” You’ve been entrusted with a lot of big responsibilities here, and this car is one of those… It wouldn’t be very mature for you to disappoint on anything. Do what you can to keep your ride in decent physical condition as you fight and drive!
Masters of Funky Action Wrenn Aflight “By the way, are you familiar with Sumo? Specifically, about the tactics at the end of the ring… Exciting, isn’t it!” Okay now the Angel is just showing off, and if anyone is showing off, they’re sure as hell not gonna be better at it than you! Make creative usage out of your car as you speed along the pass!
Suburban Regalia Tracy Von Kehr “Whoa! He got his car up on two wheels!” You don’t want to lose track of or be outshone by your target now, right? Make creative usage out of your car as you speed along the pass!
Suburban Regalia Arthur Lifeson “If we mess up, we crash! We have to time the turns with our other senses.” If you’re to pursue this target with the regality a knight ought to have, your chariot cannot be in utter shambles. Do what you can to keep your ride in decent physical condition as you fight and drive!
