arkadaşlar bu sub, FightTurkey ve CringeTopyau/sbddsb ye devrediyorum. hesabımı kapatmayacağım. fakat reddit'i sileceğim. kim bilir belki bir gün tekrar görüşürüz pek sanmasam da :') her birinizi gerçekten çok seviyorum. şuanda reddit serüvenimi bitirmiş durumdayım. bu yolda karşıma çıkan gerçekten çok iyi insanlar da tanıdım çok kötü insanlarda. her ne kadar kötü insanlarla karşılaşsamda onlara da teşekkür ederim. kendinize çok çok iyi bakın, dikkatli olun. eğer içinizden birinizi en ufak bir şekilde bile üzdüysem ya da kırdıysam çok özür dilerim. ister affedin, ister affetmeyin. ben yine de bu özürü sizlere borçlu olduğumu düşünüyorum. tekrardan bu yolda her konuda yanımda olan insanlara çok teşekkür ediyorum. post ve yorum atan sayfaya destek veren ve beni sonuna kadar seven insanlara burdan selam olsun. gerçekten çok iyi ve güzel kalpli insanlarsınız hepiniz. bu post bi taşşak postu ya da hesap çalınıp paylaşılmış bir şey değil. gayet ciddi ve doğru bir post. daha ne desem, ne eklesem bilmiyorum. ghost takılmayacağım bu arada. bu postu atıp sabitlediğimden emin olduğumdan bi süre sonra reddit'i sileceğim. bi gün tekrar dönersem ki hiç sanmıyorum. tekrar görüşürüz hepinizle :') . öteki bi yandan söylemek istediğim, eğer sublar kötü bir yola giderse(örneğin tekrar gizliye alınırsa) yeni sub açmayın. arkamdan ne iyi ne kötü konuşmayın olur mu :') sizleri son kez çok seviyorum. artık yeni sublarla kalıcaksanız. yönetimde ben olmucam sadece kurucusu benmişim gibi olucak fakat ben gitmiş olucam. artık nasıl sonlardırayım, nasıl devam edeyim... bilemiyorum. hayatımın en kötü zamanlarından geçiyorum. ki benim hayatım hiçbir zaman iyi olmamıştı zaten. acınası bir durumdayım o doğrudur. biraz size son dönem olan olaylardan bahsedeyim. tarafsız bir şekilde açıklayacağım kimseyle bir problemim yok her insanın içinde çok ufak bile olsa bir iyilik olduğunu düşünürüm. öncelikle ben hem discord hem subreddit'e yetişemediğim için discord sunucusunu sb'ye vermiştim. sonra sb haklı olarak işleri yapmaya başladı fakat bunlardan bazıları benim hoşuma gitmiyordu ama bir şey diyemezdim. bi süre sonra bir mod aldı. bu benim aram çok iyi olmayan bi moddu. ve bende sunucuda yazılan 5 mesaja engelli tepkisi koydum diye hiç uyarmadan doğrudan perma ban verdi. sonra bende aşırı sinirlendim ve sb ye yazdım. bi kaç gün sonra sunucuya tekrar girdim, banımı kaldırdı sb. ve sunucunun hali pek hoşuma gitmemişti ama burda sb yi ya da herhangi ordaki bir modu suçlamıyorum. güzel dizayn etmişlerdi, kitap okuma etkinliği yapıyolardı artık tartışmalar dönmeye başlamıştı ve baskıcı bir rejim dönüyordu. sonra ben eski samimiyetin olmadığını düşündüm ve yeni bir sunucu açıp hatalı olarak bunu bizim orijinal sunucuya atıp oldlar gelsin eski samimi ortamı kuralım dedim hatta partner kanalına bile yazdırmıştım. sonra sb ye yazdım ve o da bazı kişisel problemlerle birlikte olduğu ve bu son yaşadığı sıkıcı durum yüzümden gitti ve hesabını arkadaşına verdi. benim için artık en zorlu zamanlar başlamıştı. buraları biraz atlıyorum. anlatmam gerektiği konusunda şüphliyim. ve sb en sonunda geri geldi. bende ona yazdım falan fakat bana aşırı soğuk yaklaşıyordu. sanki ben onun 1 gün boyunca gelmesi için peşinde koşmamışım ve onun çıkarları için yanındaymışım gibi bakıyodu bana. kendimi suçlu hissettim. herkes bi anda sb ve bana nefret ve kinle bakmaya başlamıştı. bu dönem, kişisel çok büyük sorunlarım ile birlikte artık taşıyamayacak hale geldim. tüm subları gizliye aldım. sonrası ise işte böyle. unuttuğum, atladığım, taraflı baktığım çok yer varmış gibi anlaşılabilir. doğrudur artık, kimseye ne bir şey anlatmaya ne de bir şey söylemeye gücüm ve hevesim kalmadı. doğal olarak doğduğumdan beri asosyal ve çekingen bir insandım ve bu durum hala çok büyük bir hızla devam ediyor. kişisel sorundan kastım bu değil tabiiki bu söylediğim çok küçük bir şey. neyse, bana ön yargı ile yaklaşmak yerine olumlu yaklaşmanızı istiyorum. ben bir çıkarcı ya da kötü birisi değilim. en azından öyle olduğumu düşünmüyorum. aranızda bu satırları kahkaha atarak ve gülüp dalga geçerek okuyan da vardır, üzülerek okuyan ve hiçbir şey hissetmeyende. hepinizin içinde en ufak bir iyiliğin ve doğruluğun olduğunu savunuyorum. seviyorum sizleri sizde kendinizi sevin. umarım hayatınız ve yolunuz benimkinden daha doğru ve güzel olur. ben gittiğim süre zarfında hayatımı düzeltmek için uğraşacağım. sizden tek istediğim, gittiğimde arkamdan konuşmayın yeter :').
neyse millet, hadi benden buraya kadarmış. bi kaç yorumunuza bakar belki cevap verir sonra kaçarım. çünkü artık ağlayacak seviyeye geldim ahahah. yazım hatalarıma takılmayın acelece yazıp kaçıcam. modlar bu postu 1 ay sonra falan sabitlemeyi çekerse çok memnun olurum. postu kaldırmayın kalsın. sadece 1 ay sonra sabitten çekin yeter. yorumları kapatmayın. hadi hoşçakalın. ben uçtum, bazı yerleri bi kaç kez tekrar ettiğimin farkındayım. affola. hoşçakalın gençler, "aşkla yaşayın, çok güzel olsun hayatınız..."

2020.11.26 05:31 hot-ohio Be careful with cryopods (or don't be a moron

Let me just recite a conversation I just had with my partner, as he was building a full tek base on top of a Quetzalcoatl (keep in mind we're big fans of using cryopods for large dinos).
Him: I wonder if I can cryopod the Quetz with all of this stuff on him!
Me: don't try it. do not risk it.
Him: ... I'm gonna try it.
silence
Me: it didn't work, did it?
Him: I don't wanna talk about it...
There goes a nice Tek base and 2 cannons...

2020.11.25 18:00 Pastlactose3213141 The Teen Titans In Trouble In Tokyo Commited 5/7 Of The Deadly Sins And Were Punished With Equivalent Enemies To Face.

There's, what? One spoiler in this text? Don't continue reading if you want to watch the movie soon.

Cyborg - Gluttony
I think this one is pretty obvious, he eats everything an all-you-can-eat restaurant has and drives the chefs to madness because of it.

Beast Boy - Lust
Also very obvious, he gets swarmed by a horde of ravenous girls and mcloves it, until he can no longer breathe because they literally pile ontop of him.

Starfire - Pride
Less obvious than the last ones, but she doesn't think of herself and her team as 'just heroes' and believes herself to be more than worthy to be Robin's romantic partner.

Robin - Wrath
When faced with the pink and baby blue seiko-tek creation which can regenerate its wounds, Robin pummels it unrelentlessy, even covering himself with pink splats from its body. He believed that the seiko-tek creation would regenerate itself again, but it never did, and he just kept on attacking it, without it even putting up much of a fight.

Raven - Envy
Raven cannot read anything since everything is in Japanese when everyone around her can. She can only really help the team when in battle, so she felt like nothing compared to the other titans, which makes her envious of them. This is further reinforced by her seiko-tec enemy being able to phase through walls, as if it were nothing.

By the way, the reason for the ' And Were Punished With Equivalent Enemies To Face ' in the title is because they all have to face seiko-tek creations which attack them with the titan's sins, EG; Cyborg's enemy tries to eat Cyborg.

2020.11.24 21:31 order-odonata Need help with understanding my Lemon Tek experience

Fellow shroomers,
At the weekend I lemon-tekked a low dose of Penis Envy Cubensis (0.5g) and ended up having an extremely intense and powerful experience. My original intention was to test the waters of this strain (as i had heard about it's infamous potency) and was expecting either one of the two following outcomes - 1) it doing nothing 2) it just producing a mild Level-1 (stoning) experience.
I was also prepared for the unlikely experience of this producing a full blown trip (as it did), but i thought this would be very unlikely.
I wanted to test the potency first so that i could gauge a proper dose (1.5 - 2.0g) in the near future.
I decided to do the lemon tek method because i wanted the trip to start quickly. However this didn't happen! I drank the lemon / ground up mushroom mixture and the first effects took around an hour to appear.
I won't drivel on with the details...but i ended up having an extremely strong, unnerving and (in the end) beautiful experience. At times it was so intense that it felt like my whole mind was being rearranged...strange effects such as experiencing multiple (conflicting) emotions simultaneously and thought loops - in short it was a white knuckle ride which lasted for around 4 hours. Mild visuals were also present, but it was the mind fuck and body high that really got me here.
Luckily my partner was on hand to assist me and comfort me through the rough journey...but man, this really was something else for such a low dose.
Now - i'm aware that placebo can play an important role here, but i'm pretty sure this wasn't the case. This was the most fucked up drug feeling that i've felt for a very long time (for the record, i have tripped hard on 1.5g of Liberty Caps and also Mescaline).
As a result i have a new found respect for our sacred mushroom mother.
Is this a experience typical of using the Lemon Tek method? I have heard stories that it makes the mushrooms stronger, but i don't believe that. Or is it the case of Penis Envy just being unbelievably potent? or is it a mixture of the two?
I guess i'm just dumbfounded at what happened the other day and need some clarity on why this happened.

İlişkide şiddet belirli amaçlara yönelik seçilmiş bir TUTUM ve DAVRANIŞTIR. Şiddetin hizmet ettiği amaçlar :
Flört Şiddetinin Nedenleri
Erken yaşta flörte başlama, erken yaşta cinsel aktivitede bulunma, önceki ilişkilerde şiddete uğrama, aile şiddetine uğrama\tanık olma, toplumsal cinsiyet rolleri, ideal aşk kavramı.
Sağlıklı İlişki Özellikleri
Saygı, açık ve karşılıklı iletişim, güven, dürüstlük, eşitlilik ve bağlılık vardır.
Şiddetli İlişki Özellikleri
Şiddetli ilişkilerde suçlamalar, baskı, imalar ve manipülasyonlar, sınır ihlalleri ve bağımlılık vardır. İlişkide sınırlar yok olmuştur. Sorumluluk almama ve hataları kabul etmeme, hataları hep başkasında arama vardır. İletişim tek taraflı ve yargılayıcıdır. Şiddet uygulayan partner cinsiyetçi bir tavra sahiptir, geleneksel cinsiyet rolleri hakkında sert ve katı bir tutumu vardır, eşitliğe inanmaz.
Kıskançlık
Kıskançlık sağlıklı, normal ve insani bir duygudur. Önemli olan duygularımızı nasıl eyleme geçirdiğimizdir. Kıskançlık, kontrol etme aracılığı ile kullanılıyorsa, güç ve baskı içeriyorsa, cezalandırma ve kısıtlama getiriyorsa yaşam alanını ihlal etmeye başlıyor. Kıskançlık ilişkide devamlı çatışmaya yol açıyorsa, yoğunlukla kızgınlık ve öfke patlamaları oluyorsa, kıskançlık kaynaklı suçlayıcı\ itham edici \ küçük düşürücü \ yargılayan tutumlar sergileniyorsa ve bu ilişki içinde tekrarlanan bir döngü haline geliyorsa, kıskançlık aşkın göstergesi olamaz !
Flört Şiddetinde Döngü
  1. Gerilimin Oluşması : Şiddet uygulayan kişi gerilim yaratır, kıskançlık gösterebilir, küçük ve önemsiz şeylerden kavga çıkarabilir.
  2. Patlama : Kişi kendini kontrol edemez, öfkesine yenik düşer ve şiddet türlerinin herhangi bir çeşidini uygulayabilir.
  3. Balayı Dönemi : Şiddet uygulayan kişi pişmanlığını dile getirir, özür diler ve değişeceğine ilişkin sözler verir, hediyeler alır, durumun normale dönmesi için ilgili, sevecen ve yapıcı bir tutum sergiler, yeni bir gerilim oluşma aşamasına kadar bu balayı dönemi devam eder.
Flört Şiddetinin Sonuçları

2020.11.09 04:14 benk625 Zolli 23: Humanity's Greatest Threat

Previously...

Bo prepared a large meal in honor of the last night the crew of The Spectrum would be in the same location for several weeks. Hr’tek would finally be welcomed to Drozi Prime in a public ceremony to celebrate the first Roc to emerge from a Molt in a millennium. Nil & T’mez had discovered indications that there was a Terran Supremacy cell operating in the outskirts of the Drozi Empire. Lofty and Zolli were taking The Spectrum to The New Hague so that they can coordinate their efforts with Galactic Union Security forces.
Lofty sang bawdy tunes while playing a concertina. Bo shared folktales from dozens of cultures. Zolli and Nil were their typical reserved selves, quiet and graceful. Hr’tek did his best to sample every dish, but his nerves about going home dominated his mind. T’mez allowed himself to enjoy as best he could, but things he’d recently learned changed the way he perceived humans.
Eventually the entertainers and alcohol warmed and relaxed all of them to enjoy themselves. Tales of tricksters making fools of the gods brought laughter. Lofty’s repertoire of songs was repeated and the crew sang along now that the lyrics were familiar. Giddy with booze and undivided attention Rants ditched the hand accordion and started topless dancing and kissing everyone on the mouth. Zolli started cleaning up to let rest pair or triple off for one last bit of sweaty, desperate comfort before departing. She hoped this wasn’t the last time they would all be together.
The next morning Lofty Rants piloted The Spectrum out of K’taz’s shuttle hangar. Clear eyes and deft maneuvering was at odds with their appearance of last night’s make-up and several hickeys. Zolli didn’t ask and Lofty wouldn’t tell. They were intensively secretive about their bedroom companions, despite public displays of affection.
Once cleared, The Spectrum entered the Drozi system jump gate and exited into The New Hague area of control. Several massive stations orbited the Galactic Union planet. Galactic Union Security forces administered most of them, GalU Diplomat corps ran the rest. There was no central location for the entirety of GalU facilities. It was too large an entity whose member’s needs were too diverse to maintain in one location. The only constant through all Galactic Union ships, stations and planets was the presence of humans.
Xeno-sapients were amazed at the willingness of humans to reside in any and all environments often without personal protective equipment. This was for the best, as most human designed environmental suits stuck others as terrifying or at the very least, disquieting. Sane spacefaring creatures avoided operating in vacuum and designed ships with several “honeycombed” outer layers of airlocks to avoid venting life supporting gassed during a hull breach. Not only did human ships lack this basic safety feature, they routinely place their residential quarters on the outermost layer, with windows!
The Spectrum received clearance to dock at the largest space station, The Turing. Security Intelligence Services was located within. Zolli maintained relations with the department as a freelance informational operative. She had not been an employee of the Galactic Union since departing the Zanzibranz law enforcement services. In her independent capacity she submitted field reports to SIS regarding possible threats to galactic peace and security.
Information Officer Bill Childers greeted Zolli warmly. Lofty decided to stay visit a salon on station for rest and relaxation. Childers poured water for both of them as Zolli sat down. He bought up Zolli’s intel and other files he had previously compiled. Terran Supremacy was a topic he was quite familiar with. His interest had not won him many friends or much influence in the SIS.
“I appreciate your hard work, Zolli. Unfortunately, I doubt it will be much good. Politicians don’t care for it, so they don’t fund my operational requests.” He smiled apologetically. “You did a good job stopping that poacher, but he got himself protection as a covert informer.”
“Shocking” she said sarcastically.
“It is a classic tactic in criminal subversion. Give police information on your rivals to weaken them. That way they are willing to help you out if you are ever caught on the wrong side of the law yourself.” Bill frowned.
“Or implicate superiors in your own organization so you can move up yourself.” She added.
“Very true.” He agreed, saluting with his glass of water
“If it is such an old trick, how come we can’t stop it.” She asked, exasperated.
“Old tricks are old because they are effective.” He answered. “Terran Supremacy is uniquely suited to exploit an inconvenient aspect of the Galactic Union. Acknowledging this problem is politically inconvenient. Some, especially Department Head and political appointees, would rather ignore Supremacist than rectify the situation.”
“I think I know what you are implying, but I need to hear you say it plainly. I trust you, and so far you’ve deserved it.” She looked him in the eyes with sympathy. “This can’t be easy for you. Should we continue this conversation later?” He understood that she was concerned about covert surveillance. One should assume microphones, cameras, biometric scanners and data sniffers and the like when they are in a facility dedicated to Security Intelligence.
“Fuck it.” He leaned back in his chair. “Human interests and Galactic Union interests are one in the same. GalU is a de facto Terran Supremacy organization. We created it for our benefit, we dominate its policies and humans break its laws or violate their principles more than every other member species combined.”
“And no one stops us.” She agreed.
“That won’t remain true forever.” He continued. “The majority of humanity and Galactic politicians agree to small incremental changes to improve the lives of all member species. Radical change to resolve economic, technological and cultural disparities needs to happen to prevent instability between star systems. Incrementalism will not prevent resentment against human hegemony.”
“If a mid-level administrator of Security Intelligence can reach that conclusion why do policies waffle between small steps and outright denying the reality of this danger?” She asked.
“We, that is to say humans, benefit from the status quo. There is no incentive to critically examine the faults of this arrangement. Interstellar aid and trade is a facade to congratulate ourselves with. Medicine, basic physical necessities, and luxury items are plentiful. What more should be asked of us?
“Xeno-sapients who have joined the Union will trade the stability and security of being on our side over the unpleasant prospect of competing with us. They benefit from this arrangement even if it benefits us more in the end. For the time being that is enough to keep this house of cards from tumbling down. If maintaining amicable Xeno relations was our biggest threat, I wouldn’t be as apprehensive of the future as I am.”
“The biggest threat to humanity…is humanity.” She said. He nodded grimly. “Between our physical capabilities, curiosity and capacity to pack bond we have been able to defeat all of our enemies and turn them into allies. Victory after victory has convinced us that we will always win. Some among us believe this so strongly they wish to expand our dominance rather than share what we have generously.”
“You always were one of the best analysts I’ve ever met.” He praised.
“You’re not so bad for an imperial, technocratic spook, either.”
Author’s note: I made a deliberately vague reference to the crew paring and tripling off in this chapter. I want to address why chose to present it ambiguously.
  1. I do not know, or have not yet decided, which characters coupled, and which had a threesome. Making that choice doesn’t feel urgent to me because I envision the crew to be polyamorous. Partners for that evening do not indicate hetero-normative pair bonding. I am cis-het monogamous. If I stray into stereotypes or unexamined biases, please let me know. As a creator I can make up whatever details I want for Drozi, Phelaydan or the Galactic Union. LGBT+ people, however, are real. I endeavor to respect them because representation is important.
  2. “All ships are canon” (except physical acts of love involving Zolli, who is Ace). This gives the audience the ability to be correct if they have specific combination they wish to envision. Criticisms that this is a cop-out are 100% fair. For my work to be truly representative of LGBT+ individuals, it should happen on page and not be implied, however heavily.
  3. I plan on reading/researching LGBT+ literature so that I can improve my inclusive, on page representation. Any advice or recommended reading would be greatly appreciated. I am especially interested in style guides over specific authors or books because I do not want to plagiarize or “straight-wash” the hard work of others. Doing this to marginalized voices would be adding insult to injury.

2020.11.05 16:04 tetrapython 5g Lemon Tek Trip Report - It’s been 6 years since my last trip. I’ve always been a proponent of Terrence McKenna’s “high doses infrequently.” I am a Buddhist and went into this trip meditating intending for it to be an inner, therapeutic trip.

5g Lemon Tek Trip Report
Just want to share my experience with others and what it meant to me. I wrote all this down the day after the trip and decided it’s time to share it. Figured maybe some people out there would connect with my experience. Love and good energy to you all. May we all discover our original nature. 🙏🏼 ❤️
Here are the notes:
Trip Report
5 grams of Golden Teacher, home grown; soaked in ginger and lemon tek for ~ 30 min
Didn’t sleep but 3 hours the night before, had fasted for about a day and a half, woke up at 4:30 AM on a Saturday morning on October 31 2020
Blended 2 lemons, 3 bulbs of ginger, a vitamin water, the dried mushrooms, and some honey into a shake and then let sit for 30 min. Took around 8:00 AM. Laid back in a portable recliner chair, had blankets and pillows, in a comfortable room with a window open to see the autumn leaves.
First the branches and autumn leaves bled into the room, went across the ceiling, saw much sacred geometry symbols across the ceiling, the fake flowers to my left were swaying and dancing above my Buddha shrine. I was thirsty, and reached for my water, but as soon as I touched the water, I didn’t need a drink, somehow holding it satiated my thirst. Holding it in my hands, it strengthened my transmission, my vibration, and my being became a beaming signal shooting out into space. The room started to melt, and it felt that way, as my body started melting, I felt myself floating. When I closed my eyes, I noticed what I have noticed in the past when I took a large dose of mushrooms, my body started tuning in like a receiver being cast off into space, in a very rhythmic, thumping pattern…. Vvvvrrrttt….. Vvrrrrrtttt…… I went through these portals, in a very specific fashion, to end up in a multi-colored heaven-like realm. The water in my hand with the rest of my body helped me get to this place. This place had myself, and my partner, but either in a different realm, the future, or a different planet. It was her and I, very loving, the realm had these beautiful pastel like water colors, dripping, we made love and when I opened my eyes to look back at the room, I saw my partner in front of me sitting down looking at me. She asked if I was okay and I smiled, closed my eyes, receiver turned on, and repeated the same portal sequence to end up back in this very beautiful, peaceful plane. In this location I was serene, boundless, and felt uplifted. I opened my eyes, again, the room looked like a painting, and I peeled it back, I saw nothing but energy and energy particles behind everything as it was peeled back. I kept my eyes open to see this, and heard the rhythmic pounding come back, but this time, in my chair, I started to feel old, I felt that the chair I was laying back in was a hospital bed, the pounding made my mind start to think I was dying and someone was trying to bring me back to life with defibrillators, my partner saw my distress and asked if I needed her and a hug, I said yes. When she came to hug me, she laid on top of me, I felt peace and release and closed my eyes, but felt as if I was dying still. When I opened my eyes, I looked up at her on top of me, she was smiling. I heard these primordial drums and South American aborigine tunes and voices, I saw a fire behind us that danced across the face, the heat the warm vivid color of the fire. As she smiled, I saw her rapidly age, then I saw myself in her face, I started panicking a bit feeling death drawing near as my face then aged, but she sang a soothing song to me. In that moment, she became as large as the cosmos, and was like the divine cosmic mother, holding me, with unconditional love. Tears started streaming down my face, uncontrollably, they wouldn’t stop, it was a true torrent and stream pouring continually from my eyes, with my eyes closed, her holding me close, I died. I was in this space, this void, where “I” didn’t exist. In this space, there was only the one. One substance not two, no duality. Then, as this “state”wanted to experience itself, it manifested it’s desire to experience being in my body, where “I” was reborn. I woke up gasping for air breathing in deep, feeling the tears on my face, the warmth of my partner, the heaviness of my earth body, the space that I was in, the consciousness that the “state” that “I” was now filled with. I died, and was reborn like this, countless times. Feeling the fear, the release, the peace, and then the desire to want to be reborn. In the state of wanting to be reborn, I saw sex, sought out the warmth of the womb, and was drawn back to “beingness” and “existness.” This “I” this, “awareness” wanted to be in an elemental body, and elemental existence, so it could experience.
At some point I think I needed to pee, but I could not walk, at all. My body was as heavy as lead, my partner helped me to the bathroom, where I collapsed in front of the toilet. In this state, the tears still streamed, I sobbed like she said she has never seen me cry, she held me. I cried and kept saying to her, “I’m sorry, I’m so sorry.” In my experience, I was trapped in this infinite loop. Where, I would die, go to the peaceful abyss, crave existence, return, and then be soothed by her. In this state, she was telling me things in real life, and another her in my mind also manifested herself as a teacher and told me things she said in real life she never actually said. This teacher told me, we are here to experience, to have fun, that is all, and that it’s okay. In real life as well, I was telling her, this is strange, this is so strange, I want everything to go back to normal, I want to experience time again (because for me, time had collapsed, and everything was happening at once, in this state in the bathroom, I remember having profound realizations and experiences that I’ve forgotten.) And she told me, yeah it’s all strange, but that’s okay, it’s okay that it’s strange, and it gave me so much peace. I would die, come back, and repeat this process. Her singing and corassing me soothed me so I could return to that peace, and when I woke, I was in an infinite loop of being reborn in this realm, where I coughed up fluid, that I was dying, being reborn, having my first breath, finding warmth, over, and over… I saw my father, saw myself in him, that him and I were the same, same with my brother. I had this visual blood connection with my parents, and saw the importance of blood ties. All my friends were me, and I was them. It was this beautiful feeling, but scary because you felt so alone, that there was only you, but also soothing. My father's words from the other day echoed in my mind, “is this all a simulation?” “simulation….” “simulation…” In that moment, I saw these higher selves of my father, and brother. And how their higher self was trying to help me wake up in various ways by affecting their “earth selves” by giving them messages through dreams and different actions. My brother music helped me feel peaceful when I needed it (he is a rapper and has songs meant for tripping) and then my fathers higher self saying that before my trip was a sign that we are in a simulation. I heard machine sounds, alien laser like sounds, and then I was my higher self, where I helped program this simulation that we currently exist in. I was a developer for this sequence, and for a moment I felt my “avatar” body, sort of inside a pod like the movie the matrix, but I couldn’t free myself from the pod. I woke up coughing again, was soothed, sung to, and massaged by my fiance again, and went back. Living and dying repeatedly. At one point I told her, please I want this to end, I’m trapped and I need concepts, I want concepts, I need to experience time (once again, as time had collapsed for me and everything was happening at once, I thought of time being relative, and my inability to piece together existence as my consciousness was shattered repeatedly. Each time I opened my eyes again in the bathroom, she explained, “it’s okay, you ate a mushroom, things will go back to normal, we will be okay, but this is what you’re going through right now, you ate the mushroom (then the teacher version of her, that later real life her told me she didn’t actually say, this told me) the mushroom is helping you to exit the sequence, it’s giving you a glimpse of existence outside of this dream reality, but it's okay, time will come back.) At some point I was able to walk, and actually move. We went back into the office, where I had all these philosophical books laid out, and I had this profound realization of the silliness of holding onto opinions, religious, philosophical, and political. How in the grand scheme, we just need to push out infinite compassion and love, and find a way to achieve one pointed concentration and stillness of mind. That that stillness is the savior from chaos, insanity, and entropy, and having a discipline to keep an awareness can save you from descending into maddening oblivion in an insane asylum or becoming a terrible immoral and destructive person wreaking havoc on the world.
When I looked in the mirror I could not see myself, there was no reflection. At some point, I was in bodily pain, I was either super hot, or super cold, and thought I was in a hell realm. I collapsed on the floor in some blankets where I laid down and died again. When I came back, I was an infant. I remember thinking, I was learning how to walk, learning how to self soothe, and my partner had become my motherly figure/caretaker. I remember thinking, wow, psychology makes so much more sense now, as I was experiencing child development processes first hand of realizing I was a separate being from this loving care taker, and that if she left the room etc… that she didn’t cease to exist. I then rapidly aged, and could smell feces and urine (I had not actually wet myself or defecated, but the experience and smell was like I had in my mind) I was then an old man on hospice, where my caretaker helped me to pass. I came back, and was a psychotic patient with severe autism in this life. I was stuck in this way, for years in the office room we were in. Here, I had to come to terms with realizing that I wasn’t special. That I wasn’t smart. That I wasn’t better than anyone else. When I finally let go that I wasn’t going to save the world, change the world, or be “successful” I had peace, and was able to die again. After that death, I was reborn as a rock, as a tree, and other beings. I remember liking being a rock, it was simple, but just that I wish I was mobile so I could experience more. When I woke up and came back, I was a little more mobile, and not so heavy. My partner helped me down the stairs, I was coming down much more now but still not fully aware of reality. I remember thinking, I can walk through walls, I can fly, maybe I should drive a car? I can lay naked in the grass outside right? Luckily, I thought these things, but something in the back of my mind luckily prevented me from taking action, on top of my partner saying no of course. Since I really believed she was my world and knew everything, and I had to do what she said to be safe, I just did what she said. We tried to eat some, food was abysmal. I was like a toddler, mustard was so potent it choked and gagged me, I never chew my food and apparently chewed some food like, 40 times and swallowed with water. We sat outside, the blue sky was nice, but when I got too cold I came back in. No room felt right, I was too hot or too cold and just couldn't get comfortable. I remember at one point realizing the scariness of impermanence and death, and sometimes things change we have absolutely no control over, but in this state I actually experienced it wholeheartedly and it destroyed me, vs my normal intellectual understanding of this concept.
We laid down on the couch, my partner asked if I wanted a game turned on that I liked the music of to try and help me. I nodded yes. She wrapped me in blankets and pillows cause I was cold, and I wanted her to sit next to me. I again in this state, felt like I was dying even though I was coming down further. I was also crawling out of my skin, and couldn’t get comfortable, it was like I had full body RLS and it was excruciating. Since I wasn’t comfortable, we went upstairs, I remember being so confused and unsure of my environment, we closed the blinds and I took off my clothes to be more comfortable and got in bed. We cuddled for a while, and finally in that process I had a feeling and sense of self return where I could actually function.
The total time was about 6 hours. The process itself truly, truly felt like an eternity, especially the processes of being reborn and dying.
Looking back on it all, I see the crying as very beneficial. It felt amazing to sob in my partners arms. She was this representation of yin (female energy) and the giver of life, this divine mother of cosmic brilliance that gave me this unconditional love and saved me. I remember thinking, in the void, I was this one substance, I split into two due to duality and wanting to experience myself, and then my partner was me, and I was me, 2 halves of the same coin, making the one substance. The realm of nothingness I was in reminds me of literally “the realm of nothingness” or the realm of “perception and non-perception.” in Buddhism. Perhaps it was a direct experience of undifferentiated consciousness? Perhaps it was the eternal, a taste of Nibbana, perhaps, or perhaps not.
Routine and time protect us from descending into madness. Moral codes, philosophical systems, and religions can help keep us grounded from dissipating to a state of psychosis.
We are here to experience time, we are here to entertain and to be entertained, touching our original nature is ultimate freedom, but we came here to create as gods in this realm. To not descend into madness, we need to have discipline to achieve one-pointed concentration, to achieve true sati (mindfulness) and awareness. So we can radiate universal compassion and love, and help all others (ironically who are all but extensions of ourselves) to achieve peace, happiness, bliss, and discover theiour true nature. In discovering our true nature, we can fully experience the joy of this dreamscape. Of simply creating as artists, building, and moving with the infinite flow and stream of existence, understanding that death and change are a natural process, and to truly exist in peace is to flow with the change and exist in all things, and not fight death and impermanence, but embrace it for the experience it is every step along the way.
The universe is a self-generating spontaneous process embraced by a nature that is immanent in all things. Nothing is separate or beyond this. There is a state, a one substance, that is a part of us all, it is one, not two by nature, but divides itself in two to experience itself. It divides itself into yin and yang energies, then further into the elements, and from there, shapes everything else. If we can hone our concentration, we can experience this oneness in these elemental forms. In remembering our true nature, we can experience this life and embrace it’s beauty and change, and learn to let go as everything around us shapes and flows into varying forms and energies.

2020.11.05 15:21 RoobetTip WARNING ROOBET UPDATED THE AML BUT NOT PUBLICLY

The reason behind this is to prove that the details of the person registered are correct and the deposited values are not stolen or being used by someone else, which is to create the general framework for the fight against money laundering. We also take into the accord that depending on the nationality and origin, the way of payment and for withdrawing different safety measurements must be taken. www.roobet.com also puts reasonable measures in place to control, limit, and avoid ML risk, including dedicating the appropriate means. www.roobet.com is committed to high standards of anti-money laundering (AML) according to the EU guidelines, compliance and requires management & employees to enforce these standards in preventing the use of its services for money laundering purposes.

Organization of the AML for www.roobet.com: In accordance with the AML legislation, www.roobet.com has appointed the “highest level” for the prevention of ML: The full management of TekHou5 Limited. is in charge and responsible. Furthermore, an AMLCO (Anti Money Laundering Compliance Officer) is in charge of the enforcement of the AML policy and procedures within the System. The AMLCO is also in charge of constantly adjusting the AML to deal with all upcoming difficulties when preventing Money Laundering. (temporally Max Smithwith support of the Legal Department) . The AMLCO is placed under the direct responsibility of the general Management and part of the extended Management. AML policy changes and implementation requirements: Each major change of www.roobet.com AML policy is subject to be approved by the general management of TekHou5 Limited and the Anti-money laundering compliance officer. Three-step Verification: Step one verification: - KYC Step one verification is a simple KYC (Know your customer), which must be done by every user and customer to withdraw. Regarding the choice of payment, the amount of payment, the amount of withdrawing, the choice of withdrawing, and nationality of the usecustomer step one verification must be done first. Step one verification is an online document that must be filled out by the usecustomer himself faithfully. The following information must be filled in: first name, second name, date of birth, country of usual residence. We do not allow any withdraws of funds until the KYC is filled in and approved. In case of misinformation or unfaithful filling in we may hold the funds until the KYC is approved. We may ask you to do Step two verification first before withdrawing any funds if you filled in intentionally wrong information’s in the KYC online document. Step two verification: AML 1 Step two verification, an ID check, and electronic origin check must be done by every user which deposit over 2000$ (two thousand Dollar) or withdraws over 2000$ (two thousand Dollar) or sends another user over 1000$ (one thousand Dollar), over the period of 24 months. Until step two verification is done the withdraw, tip, or deposit will be held. Step to verification will lead the user or customer to a subpage where he must submit his ID. The usecustomer has to take a picture of his ID, while a paperclip with a six-digit random generated number is next to his ID: Only an official ID may be used for ID verification, depending on the country the variety of accepted IDs may be different. (Normally these are: Driving license, Passport, Identity card. Depending on your country of origin this may variate) There will also be an electronic check if the filled-in Data from the step one verification, the KYC, match. The electronic check will check via two different databanks to insure the given information matches with the filled document and the name from the ID. In addition, this electronic check crosschecks the origin of the usecustomer as well as his state of residence and address. If the electronic test fails or is not possible the usecustomer is required to send in confirmation of his current residence. A certificate of registration by the government or a similar document is required. In cases where no such certificate exists the utility bills of the last 6 months may be used. Step three verification: AML 2 Step three verification, verification of the source of funds, must be done by every user which deposit over 5000$ (five thousand Dollar) or withdraws over 5000$ (five thousand Dollar) or sends another user over 3000$ (three thousand Dollar), over the period of 24 months. Until step three verification is done the withdraw, tip, or deposit will be held. For step 3 a usecustomer will be asked for a source of wealth.The usecustomer has to upload a document proving his source of wealth via a subpage. Source of funds If a player deposits over a five thousand euro there is a process of understandings the source of wealth (SOW) Examples of SOW are: Ownership of business Employment Inheritance Investment Family The origin and legitimacy of that wealth must be clearly understood. If this is not possible an employee may ask for an additional document or prove. Customer identification and verification (KYC- AML 1) The formal identification of customers on entry into commercial relations is a vital element, both for the regulations relating to money laundering and for the KYC policy. This identification relies on the following fundamental principles: A copy of your passport, ID card, or driving license, each shown alongside a handwritten note mentioning six random generated numbers. Please note that all four corners of the ID have to be visible in the same image and all details have to be readable besides the named above. An employee may do additional checks if necessary, based on the situation. Proof of Address: Proof of address will be done via different electronic checks, which use two different databases. For our electronic checks, we use the services of UNISERV, you may check their Privacy Policy under https://www.uniserv.com/en/privacy-policy/ If an electronic test fails, the usecustomer has the option to make a manually proof of address. A recent utility bill sent to your registered address, issued within the last 6 months or an official document made by the government which proofs your state of residence. To make the approval process as speedy as possible, please make sure the document is sent with a clear resolution where all four corners of the document are visible, and all text is readable. For example, an electricity bill, water bill, bank statement, or any governmental post addressed to you. An employee may do additional checks if necessary, based on the situation. Basic online document for KYC: The basic document will be accessible via the setting page on www.roobet.com. Every user has to fill out the following information’s: First name Second name Nationality Date of Birth The document will be saved and created by an AI, an employee may do additional checks if necessary based on the situation. Sanctions, Persons and Entities of Special Interest as well as PEPS. The www.opensanctions.org database is used for screenings of open sanctions. The website is a global database of persons and companies of political, criminal, or economic interest. It combines the most important sanctions lists, databases of politically exposed persons, and other public information into a single easy-to-access dataset. It Cross-checks leeks and public databases for possible conflicts of interests and signs of illicit activity, it tracks political conflicts and compare worldwide sanctions policies and checks potential customers and partners in international dealings. The project includes sanctions lists, lists of politicians, ban lists used in government procurement, lists of known terrorists, and other data sources relevant to journalistic research and due diligence. In order to facilitate the use of this database, www.roobet.com has created a script that incorporates the OpenSanctions search engine on the website. The user will sign up and must add his/her name and email address, our script. Before they move onto the next stage of checks a script extracts their name and scans this through the database to ensure that they are not a listed person. If the results come back negative, the customer will not be able to enter the site and we will inform authorities. www.roobet.com will also have a subscription to namescan.io Furthermore, roobet.com will be supported by UNISERV in their checks for possible fraud, companies of political, criminal interests. Their advanced system is fully in cooperated in the intern system from TekHou5 Limited. Risk management: In order to deal with the different risks and different states of wealth in different regions on the earth. www.roobet.com will categorize every nation in three different regions of risk. Region one: Low risk: For every nation from the region one, the three-step verification is done as described earlier. Region two: Medium risk: For every user from any nation, which is on the medium-risk list AML verification will be done at the lower deposit, withdrawal, and tip thresholds. AML 1 will be done after depositing 1000$ (one thousand Dollars), withdrawing 1000$ (one thousand dollars), or tipping another usecustomer 500$ (five hundred dollars.) AML 2 will be done after depositing 2500$ (two thousand five hundred Dollars), withdrawing 2500$ (two thousand five hundred dollars), or tipping another usecustomer 1000$ (one thousand Dollars). Also, users from a low-risk region that change cryptocurrency in any other currency will be treated like users/customers from a medium risk region. Region three: High risk: Regions of high risks will be banned. High-risk regions will be regularly updated to keep up with the changing environment of a fast-changing world. Cryptocurrency tracking: As a part of TekHou5 Limited´s risk management, every crypto deposit will be automatically checked for abuse. These automated checks will be done via two different platforms simultaneously. First Database is Bitcoin Abuse Network, you may see their Privacy Policy on https://www.bitcoinabuse.com/ The second Database is Crystal Blockchain, you may see their Privacy Policy on: https://crystalblockchain.com/ Whenever a crypto wallet is shown as fraudulent in one of the two databases the transaction will be automatically frozen. An employee on roobet.com will look further into the case and investigate. If any fraud is detected the authorities will be informed immediately. Additional measurements. In addition, an AI which is overseen by the AML compliance officer will look for any unusual behavior and report it right away to an employee of www.roobet.com. According to a risk-based few and general experience, the human employees will recheck all checks which are done bevor by the AI or other employees and may redo or do additional checks according to the situation. In addition, a data Scientist supported by modern, electronic, analytic systems will look for unusual behavior like Depositing and withdrawing without longer Betting sessions. Attempts to use a different Bank account for Deposit and Withdraw, nationality changes, currency changes, behavior and activity changes as well as checks if an account is used by its original owner. Also, a user has to use the same method to Withdraw as he used for Deposit, for the amount of the Initial Deposit to prevent any Money Laundering. Enterprise-wide risk assessment As part of its risk-based approach, www.roobet.com has conducted an AML “Enterprise-wide risk assessment” (EWRA) to identify and understand risks specific to www.roobet.com and its business lines. The AML risk policy is determined after identifying and documenting the risks inherent to its business lines such as the services the website offers. The Users to whom services are offered, transactions performed by these Users, delivery channels used by the bank, the geographic locations of the bank’s operations, customers and transactions, and other qualitative and emerging risks. The identification of AML risk categories is based on www.roobet.com's understanding of regulatory requirements, regulatory expectations, and industry guidance. Additional safety measures are taken to take care of the additional risks the world wide web brings with it. The EWRA is yearly reassessed. The EWRA takes into account the additional risks of cryptocurrencies and online transactions. Ongoing transaction monitoring AML-Compliance ensures that an “ongoing transaction monitoring” is conducted to detect transactions that are unusual or suspicious compared to the customer profile. This transaction monitoring is conducted on three levels : 1) The First Line of Control: www.roobet.com works solely with trusted Payment Service Providers who all have effective AML policies in place as to prevent the large majority of suspicious deposits onto www.roobet.com from taking place without proper execution of KYC procedures onto the potential customer. 2) The Second Line of Control: www.roobet.com makes its network-aware so that any contact with the customer or player or authorized representative must give rise to the exercise of due diligence on transactions on the account concerned. In particular, these include: Requests for the execution of financial transactions on the account; Requests concerning means of payment or services on the account; Also, the multi-step verification with adjusted risk management should provide all necessary information’s about all costumers of www.roobet.com at all times. All transactions must be overseen by employees overwatched by the AML compliance officer who is overwatched by the general manager. The specific transactions submitted to the customer support manager, possibly through their Compliance Manager must also be subject to due diligence. Determination of the unusual nature of one or more transactions essentially depends on a subjective assessment, concerning the knowledge of the customer (KYC), their financial behavior, and the transaction counterparty. These checks will be done by an automated system, while an Employee crosschecks them for additional security. The transactions observed on customer accounts for which it is difficult to gain a proper understanding of the lawful activities and origin of funds must therefore rapidly be considered atypical (as they are not directly justifiable). Any www.roobet.com staff member must inform the AML division of any atypical transactions which they observe and cannot attribute to a lawful activity or source of income known of the customer. 3) The third Line of Control: As the last line of defense against AML www.roobet.com will do manual checks on all suspicious and higher risk users to fully prevent money laundering. If fraud or Money Laundering is found the authorities will be informed. Reporting of Suspicious transactions on www.roobet.com In its internal procedures, www.roobet.com describes in precise terms, for the attention of its staff members, when it is necessary to report and how to proceed with such reporting. Reports of atypical transactions are analyzed within the AML team following the precise methodology fully described in the internal procedures. Depending on the result of this examination and based on the information gathered, the AML team : will decide whether it is necessary or not to send a report to the FIU, following the legal obligations provided in the Law of 18 September 2017; will decide whether or not it is necessary to terminate the business relations with the customer. Procedures The AML rules, including minimum KYC standards, will be translated into operational guidance or procedures that are available on the Intranet site of www.roobet.com- In case of conflict, the English guidelines will be exclusively used. Record keeping Records of data obtained for identification must be kept for at least ten years after the business relationship has ended. Records of all transaction data must be kept for at least ten years following the carrying-out of the transactions or the end of the business relationship. These data will be safe, encrypted stored offline, and online. Training: www.roobet.com uses advanced AI and machine learning to further improve its AML defense. Also, trained developers constantly improve AI to prevent any security flaws. A specialized Developer is in charge of constant improvements. While at the same time human employees will check and overlook the AI at any time and make manual controls on a risk-based approval for which they get special training. The training and awareness program is reflected by its usage: - A mandatory AML training program following the latest regulatory evolutions, for all in touch with finances - Academic AML learning sessions for all new employees The content of this training program has to be established under the kind of business the trainees are working for and the posts they hold. These sessions are given by an AML-specialist working in the TekHou5 Limited AML team. Auditing Internal audit regularly establishes missions and reports about AML activities. Data Security: All data given by any usecustomer will be kept secure, will not be sold or given to anyone else. Only if forced by law, or to prevent money laundering data may be shared with the AML-authority of the affected state. www.roobet.com will follow all guidelines and rules of the data protection directive (officially Directive 95/46/EC) Contact us: If you have any questions about our AML and KYC Policy, please contact us: By email: [email protected] If you have any complaints about our AML and KYC Policy or the checks done on your Account and your Person, please contact us: By email: [email protected]

2020.11.03 01:34 benk625 Zolli 20: The Quiet Ones

Previously...

En route to Drozi Prime the Spectrum rendezvoused with a Drozi diplomatic corps carrier ship K’taz. Spectrum docked in the cavernous hangar alongside high speed messenger corvettes. The Council of Administrators had requested this be done to give them time to prepare various sites on the surface to receive their honored guest. While preparations were conducted below, Senior Administrators, or their representatives would brief Hr’tek about the status of the Drozi Empire and his new role as Roc.
The first meeting was with S’fek of Public Safety. Before the Hr’tek’s Molt he was a member of local law enforcement agency on a Galactic Union planet. The particular district Hr’tek worked for was located in territory administered by the Drozi Empire for GalU. This meant that S’fek had personnel files on Hr’tek and Zolli. All three of them were seated at conference table in a state room.
“Allow me to be the first Senior Administer to welcome you home.” S’fek started with a curt nod. “I have been going over your and Ms. Zolli’s files covering your employment on Zanzibranz.” The former partners shifted uncomfortably. “You two worked together for several years until she left the force. After that, you were put on administrative duty until a few weeks ago when you were assigned a Phelaydan rookie partner.” He stopped speaking and stared at them expressionless. After an uncomfortable silence, he continued.
“Official reports are often bureaucratic and lack detail.” His attempt at comradery was forced and unconvincing. “Why were you on administrative duty, and why did it end?”
“Sir do you remember the Year of Decades?” Hr’tek asked.
“I remember it from my perspective as Head of Public Safety. I recall many reports from GalU planets with Drozi law enforcement. The events commonly called The Year of Decades was less of a concern on planets that were under direct control of Xeno home world governments. My peers and I noted that, as with so many things in GalU, hot spots were primarily on planets with large human populations.” He kept his eyes on Hr’tek, studiously avoiding Zolli’s.
“Well anyway,” Hr’tek said, clumsily trying to move the conversation. “It was bad on Zanzibranz. You name it we had it: pandemic, civil unrest, economic depression. Crime ran rampant. Some of my colleagues were a bit overzealous in their attempts to restore some sense of order and normalcy.”
“Yes I read your testimony from the Parliamentary Hearings.” He turned to Zolli. “I also read your public denunciation of these events following your separation from the force. It was quite…impassioned. I wonder how you can write such things and still be willing to be friends with a…what was it that colorful phrase…‘jack booted thugs?’”
“Because I testified sir.” Hr’tek answered before Zolli could. She had opened her mouth, but closed it as her friend responded. She made a face as if she had swallowed something unpleasant. Probably a caustic response Hr’tek thought to himself. “She understood that I wasn’t too many years from retirement and that I couldn’t get a new job like a Human could. She wasn’t happy with it, but my testimony ensured that the worst offenders were brought to justice.”
“Maybe GalU justice, but not Drozi justice!” S’fek snapped. Many of his counterparts from other member species disliked the GalU insistence on adjudicating Xeno nationals. Human sensibilities were seen as overly sentimental by heads of law enforcement galaxy wide. Excepting human worlds who did not participate in the Galactic Union. Reports from those planets indicated an almost diametrically opposed lack of empathy and regard for Civl Rights.
“And what would have been Drozi justice?” Zolli asked in a cold even tone. Hr’tek knew that to be a bad sign. Humans, by and large, are considered gregariously rude. This is a bit of selection bias as the humans most likely to encounter other species have insatiable curiosity and boundless energy. Combine that with a memory capacity which is incomprehensible; even to humans. This tends to result in a human that is confidently and exuberantly engaging in half remembered customs from dozens of cultures. Somehow they could offend twice as often in half the amount of time. They were efficient, cheerful boors.
Then there are those like Zolli. Aloof and observant, they watch and learn everywhere they go. Many Xenos assume that these Humans are the more sensible, mature members of the species. The loud, boisterous variety tend to be quick to anger and cause all sorts of havoc with their blundering. Hr’tek has watched many tense Xenos visibly relax when they find a human that is quiet.
“It’s the quiet ones you’ve got to watch out for.” The earther saying rang alarm bells in his head.
“Justice would have been to promote them for their rational application of force to establish order. Instead, GalU saw fit to punish them for doing their duty to protect the lives and property of law abiding citizens. Those peace keeping methods should be taught to Human law enforcement, not used to punish Xeno police!”
Wrong answer, Hr’tek thought to himself. He had said much the same thing to her back in the bad old days. She supported her argument for rational engagement by socking him in the jaw. He almost felt the blow again as he relived the moment. He remembered waking up in a hospital. Zolli asked him if he preferred rational discourse to ‘judicious use of force’. Such a lesson would not be as productive with the Senior Administrator. He peeked at Zolli from the side of his eye. She was breathing in steadily through her nose. Mentally, she was counting backwards from 100 in prime numbers.
A calming exercise. Good.
“Have you heard of the human phrase agree to disagree?” She asked in a sickly sweet manner. Without waiting for a response she stood. “If you’ll excuse me Senior Administrator, I believe my presence is distracting the conversation away from the important briefing Hr’Tek needs. I do not believe my opinions regarding past events will lead to a productive outcome as they will fall on deaf ears.” She turned on her heel and strode out of the room quietly.
“I don’t have ears.” S’fek said, confused. “Clearly she knows I’m not deaf…”
Hr’tek was going to hear all about this later.

  • Multiple characters who have only had a single named attribution in flavor text get their own card. (An attribution is, specifically, their name appearing after a quote.) Malcolm and Breeches (and maybe more?)

Cynata's Pre-Clinical Pipeline
In order for Cynata Therapeutics (Cynata) to validate its Cymerus™ manufacturing platform, it has to show to the regenerative medicine industry in general and potential partners in particular that its induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) have similar or superior functionality to native, donor-derived MSCs.
Although being in a good position, Australian company Cynata (current Market Capital of ~US$70 million), backed by Japanese heavyweight FujiFilm and global asset manager Fidelity International, does not have enough funding to take on all clinical trials (in humans) itself to show that. Instead, it focuses its resources to build a large catalogue of compelling pre-clinical data covering numerous diseases and have them all Phase 2 (or even Phase 3 - see The SCUlpTOR Trial) ready for any future licensee to develop:

Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS)
Source: Cynata Investor Presentation 14 August 2020
Key Highlights (ASX Announcement 17 April 2020):
  • The severity of lung injury was significantly reduced, as shown by histological lung injury score (p=0.04)
  • Inflammation was significantly reduced, as shown by levels of the inflammatory cytokine IL-8 in the lungs at 3, 13 and 23 hours after treatment (p=0.013, 0.016, and 0.028 respectively)
  • There was a reduction in the depth and severity of circulatory shock, as shown by a highly significant increase in arterial blood pressure after 4 hours (p=0.001), and a significant reduction in the requirement for noradrenaline (a drug used to maintain blood pressure) over the entire study period (p=0.01). Circulatory shock is a life-threatening condition that often occurs in patients with ARDS, which can result in low blood pressure, increased heart rate, and impaired function of multiple organs
Dr Kilian Kelly, Cynata’s Chief Operating Officer, commented: “We are very encouraged by the beneficial effects of Cymerus MSCs on a number of important, clinically-relevant endpoints in this model of ARDS. These results provide valuable guidance on the potential clinical utility of Cymerus MSCs in the treatment of ARDS. It is also very useful to learn more about the practical mechanical challenges associated with administering MSCs at the same time as ECMO, but it is important to note that most patients with ARDS do not receive ECMO. Furthermore, in humans with ARDS who are not receiving ECMO, we expect to be able to administer repeated intravenous infusions of MSCs, which may have advantages compared to the approach that was taken in this preclinical study. We are currently in discussions with leading key opinion leaders about a possible clinical trial in human patients with ARDS, including those who have developed ARDS as a result of the devastating COVID-19 pandemic.”
The study with the title "The Safety and Efficiency of Addressing ARDS Using Stem Cell Therapies in Clinical Trials" can be found here.
There were no statistically significant differences in oxygenation index between groups. The authors of the paper suggested that this may have been due to the severity of the lung injury induced; the fact that the observation period may have been too short to observe all beneficial effects of the treatment; and practical challenges performing these assessments during ECMO.
The authors also observed that a different dose regimen and/or route of administration could lead to further improved outcomes.
The study also found that MSCs adhere to the membranes in the ECMO device, resulting in a significant increase in pressure, and there was a higher incidence of thrombosis in the lungs observed post-mortem. While this did not lead to failure of the ECMO device or other observed adverse events, the study team considered that it could potentially do so, and therefore concluded that they cannot currently recommend the use of MSCs in combination with ECMO. It is important to note that this finding is relevant to MSCs in general (regardless of source), as it is related to the propensity of MSCs to adhere to plastic, but it does not have implications for the treatment of patients with ARDS who are NOT receiving ECMO.


Heart Attack
Source: Cynata Investor Presentation 14 August 2020
Key Highlights (ASX Announcement 31 July 2018):
  • Cymerus MSC treatment improved recovery of cardiac function post heart attack compared to either placebo or bone marrow-derived MSCs (BM-MSCs)
  • Cymerus MSC treatment also reduced left ventricular end-systolic diameter (LVESD) compared to either placebo or BM-MSCs. LVESD reduction is associated with lower risk of further cardiac events
  • This positive preclinical study result adds to Cynata’s growing number of successful pre-clinical studies, intended to demonstrate the broad applicability of the Cymerus cell-manufacturing platform
Dr Kilian Kelly, Cynata’s Vice President, Product Development, said: "These very encouraging results add to a growing body of evidence showing that Cymerus MSCs may have an important role to play in the treatment of a wide range of diseases. There is still a huge unmet medical need associated with heart attacks, which cause over 8,000 deaths and more than 50,000 hospitalisations each year in Australia alone. We are optimistic about the potential benefits that Cymerus MSCs could bring to patients who experience these life-changing events.”
A summary of the above study was published under the title "Pluripotent Stem Cell-Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells Improve Cardiac Function and Reduce Scar Size Post MI" and can be found here30765-5/pdf).
Building on the initial pre-clinical data, Cynata announced further data confirming the potential utility of Cymerus MSCs in restoring cardiac function following heart attack.
Key Highlights (ASX Announcement 20 September 2020):
  • Additional efficacy data from preclinical disease model on recovery of cardiac function post heart attack help to explain the previously announced superior therapeutic effects demonstrated by Cymerus MSC treatment when compared to conventional bone marrow derived MSC treatment and placebo
  • The new data show that Cynata’s Cymerus MSCs enhance the recovery of the blood supply to the damaged heart by:
- Enhancing the development of new blood capillaries (around twice as many capillaries were shown in the Cymerus MSC group versus placebo controls)
- Enhancing arteriogenesis (growth of arterioles: small blood vessels)
- whereas bone marrow derived MSCs did not (nearly three times as many arterioles were shown in the Cymerus MSC group versus placebo controls)
- Releasing higher levels of molecules known to be involved in the stimulation of new blood vessel growth (provides a rationale for the increased growth of blood vessels seen following treatment with Cymerus MSCs)
  • This builds on the significant dataset demonstrating the potential benefits of treatment with Cynata’s Cymerus MSCs and Cynata will continue to work with relevant parties to determine the next steps for this program and broader clinical development
Dr Kilian Kelly, Cynata’s Chief Operating Officer, said: "With the benefit of this further data we are now able to better understand the beneficial effects of our Cymerus MSCs in this model of heart attack. It is particularly notable that the latest results are consistent with the greater benefit demonstrated by Cymerus MSCs over BM-MSCs in the earlier studies of heart function. Given the scalability and consistency advantages of the Cymerus MSC manufacturing process over conventional processes, the potential therapeutic advantages shown here are particularly interesting as a putative treatment for post heart attack cardiac damage.”
The data from this study will be submitted for publication to a peer-reviewed medical journal and the post will be updated once the study is published.


Brain Cancer / Glioblastoma
Source: Cynata Investor Presentation 14 August 2020
Key Highlights (ASX Announcement 18 October 2018):
  • Genetically engineered cells were successfully produced using the Cymerus platform to express diagnostic and therapeutic anti-cancer agents
  • Engineered Cymerus cells can be effectively tracked by real time imaging in vivo in mouse tumour models
  • Engineered Cymerus cells showed highly promising therapeutic benefits in different mouse tumour models
Professor Shah commented, "Our results validate the use of this cell-based approach, as it provides a continuous pool of therapeutic protein around the tumour cells, circumventing the protein short half-lives. Overall, the study outcomes support the use of engineered Cymerus MSCs for cell therapy to target various malignancies.”


Diabetic Wounds
Source: Cynata Investor Presentation 14 August 2020
Key Highlights (ASX Announcement 31 May 2018):
  • Cymerus MSCs resulted in significantly faster wound healing than bone marrow-derived MSCs
  • Discussions between Cynata and CTM CRC are underway regarding progressing Cymerus MSCs and CTM CRC’s wound-dressing technology into a clinical trial in human patients with diabetic foot ulcers
  • Diabetic wounds are prevalent among the 400m+ diabetics globally and a significant opportunity exists to improve existing treatments and meet a growing unmet medical need
Dr Leanna Read, CTM CRC’s Chair and CEO, said, "Rapid wound closure reduces the risk of infection and wound management costs, and improves health outcomes for patients. Our studies show that delivery of Cymerus MSCs via CTM CRC’s proprietary polymer-coated dressing can accelerate reepithelialisation and wound closure when compared to the dressing alone or treatment with commercially produced bone marrow-derived MSCs. We need only a small number of MSCs to seed the dressing, so we expect that this product could be produced at a low cost and positioned very competitively against existing treatment options.”
CTM CRC also mentioned the following in its 2018 Exit Report:
Started dealing with an Australian cell therapy company – Cynata Ltd, to commercialise its coated wound dressing. Preclinical results have provided strong evidence of the potential for the treatment to improve the healing of chronic wounds in diabetic patients, which costs the Australian healthcare system more than $3b annually. TekCyte is now working with Cynata and organisations in the UK to initiate a first-in-man clinical trial.


Coronary Artery Disease
Source: Cynata Investor Presentation 14 August 2020
Key Highlights (ASX Announcement 4 March 2019):
  • Cymerus MSCs induce neovascularisation (growth of new blood vessels) in an in vitro assay
  • Modification of the cell culture matrix (the material on which the cells are grown) was shown to “prime” Cymerus MSCs, and improve their ability to induce neovascularisation
  • The priming effects were maintained after the cells were frozen and then thawed
Dr Kilian said, “These results are highly encouraging, in particular the finding that the priming effects were maintained after the cells were frozen and then thawed, which is extremely important with respect to clinical use of the primed cells. In practical terms, these findings mean that Cynata’s Cymerus MSCs could potentially be used therapeutically to encourage healthy new blood vessel growth in the heart of patients in whom the existing blood supply has been compromised as a result of CAD.”
Following the positive pre-clinical data in Coronary Artery Disease, Cynata was awarded an Australian Government Grant to progress the development (ASX Announcement 28 October 2019):
The additional project, which is expected to complete by the end of 2020, seeks to build on the previous findings by profiling the pro-angiogenic factors released from the primed MSCs, establish the ability of primed cells to promote new blood vessel formation in vivo, followed by in vivo safety and efficacy in a preclinical model.
Dr Kilian Kelly, Cynata’s Chief Operating Officer, said, “We are very pleased to receive this non-dilutive funding, which enables us to further our research into the development of customised MSCs that address CAD before a heart attack occurs. Associate Professor Kristopher Kilian and his team have already demonstrated the potential value of this approach, and we now look forward to generating further data in support of a future clinical trial.”


Asthma
Source: Cynata Investor Presentation 14 August 2020
Key Highlights first pre-clinical study (ASX Announcement 2 March 2017):
  • Final report of initial preclinical study confirms Cymerus™ MSCs have significant beneficial effects on all three key components of asthma: airway hyper-responsiveness, inflammation and airway remodelling
  • Additional preclinical study expected to pave the way for a potential clinical trial

Key Highlights second pre-clinical study (ASX Announcement 23 August 2017):
Clear efficacy data for Cynata’s proprietary Cymerus™ MSCs in second preclinical study in a clinically-relevant model of asthma
Cymerus MSCs caused significantly greater reduction of airway hyperresponsiveness compared to corticosteroid treatment
Data suggest Cymerus MSCs can be administered alone or in combination with corticosteroids to treat the airway hyperresponsiveness associated with asthma
Completion of this study will further advance the path towards clinical trials
"The combination of Cymerus MSCs and dexamethasone resulted in maximal improvement for each endpoint measured. Hence, it can be concluded that such a combination therapy has the potential to improve treatment outcomes in asthmatic patients," said Associate Professor Samuel.

Key Highlights final pre-clinical study (ASX Announcement 11 December 2017):
  • Clear confirmation of efficacy of Cynata’s proprietary Cymerus™ MSCs in second preclinical asthma study
  • Treatment with Cymerus MSCs in clinically-relevant model caused significantly greater reduction of airway hyperresponsiveness, airway remodelling and fibrosis compared to corticosteroid treatment
  • Combination therapy involving Cymerus MSCs and corticosteroids resulted in a pronounced synergistic effect, producing marked anti-inflammatory effects in addition to the benefits seen with Cymerus MSC treatment alone
  • Strong efficacy data from this trial advances path towards clinical trials in asthma, a disease that impacts +300 million people globally
Dr Kilian Kelly, Cynata’s Vice President, Product Development commented: "These findings further strengthen the body of evidence supporting the use of Cymerus MSCs as a potential asthma treatment. In addition to confirming that Cymerus MSCs had a greater effect than corticosteroid treatment on several key manifestations of asthma in this model, these results provide clear evidence that Cymerus MSCs can work in synergy with corticosteroids. Overall, the results suggest that Cymerus MSCs could be used as a standalone treatment, for example in patients who are unable to tolerate corticosteroids, or as an add-on therapy in patients who are unable to gain control of their condition with existing medications.”
The study was published in a leading peer-reviewed journal. Title "iPSC‐ and mesenchymoangioblast‐derived mesenchymal stem cells provide greater protection against experimental chronic allergic airways disease compared with a clinically used corticosteroid" (see here).
An ASX Announcement regarding the publication (25 February 2019) mentioned the following key highlights:
Clear efficacy data for Cynata’s proprietary Cymerus MSCs in final phase of preclinical asthma study
Cymerus MSCs alone demonstrated striking anti-fibrotic effects, and reduced airway hyperresponsiveness by up to 75%
When Cymerus MSC were administered with the corticosteroid dexamethasone, the positive effects of both treatments alone were retained
Results suggest that the combination of Cymerus MSCs with corticosteroids may be a viable treatment option offering the potential of superior asthma control
Dr Kilian Kelly, Cynata’s Vice President of Product Development, said, “This is the latest in a series of important studies describing the efficacy of Cymerus MSCs in preclinical models of various diseases, and its publication in a leading peer-reviewed journal provides further independent validation of the promise that the Cymerus platform holds. It broadens the solid evidence supporting the therapeutic utility of Cynata’s Cymerus technology in lung disease and adds to the clinical data from our recently completed Phase 1 trial in graft-versus-host disease (GvHD).”

These encouraging pre-clinical study results in asthma led to a pre-clinical study in Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF).
Key Highlights (ASX Announcement 7 September 2020):
  • Efficacy demonstrated in preclinical rodent model of IPF, a disease which causes severe lung damage and leads to respiratory failure
  • Existing treatments for IPF have limited efficacy
  • Treatment with Cynata’s Cymerus MSCs led to statistically significant improvements in multiple harmful effects of IPF, including interstitial fibrosis, dynamic lung compliance and airway resistance
Dr. Kilian Kelly, Cynata’s Chief Operating Officer, said: “These latest results with Cymerus MSCs add to the large body of evidence on the potency of these cells and their potential utility in treating a wide range of devastating diseases. IPF represents an enormous unmet medical need, as existing treatment options have only modest effects on disease progression and survival rates. We will continue to work with Professor Samuel and our other advisors to determine the next steps for this important program.
Professor Samuel commented: “These results are extremely encouraging. While they are very consistent with our previous studies of these cells in a model of asthma, it was important to confirm that the potent anti-inflammatory and anti-fibrotic effects of Cymerus MSCs would be replicated in IPF, which is a disease with very different underlying pathophysiology. We look forward to publishing our results in a peer-reviewed journal in due course.”
The post will be updated once the study is published.


Cytokine Release Syndrome (CRS)
Source: Cynata Investor Presentation 14 August 2020
Key Highlights (ASX Announcement 19 September 2018):
  • Cymerus MSC treatment is effective in protecting against CRS in murine models, with statistically significant improvements in body temperature and clinical scores relative to control animals
  • Cynata intends to partner with companies developing cancer immunotherapies to evaluate the treatment approach in humans
Dr Kilian Kelly, Cynata’s Vice President, Product Development, said, "Cancer immunotherapy is one of the most exciting fields in medicine today, offering a potentially curative treatment option to patients with otherwise intractable and advanced disease. However, CRS is a common, unpredictable and potentially fatal complication that may limit treatment uptake. These results suggest that administering a single dose of Cymerus MSCs before, during or even shortly after cancer immunotherapy treatment may provide significant therapeutic benefit and a straightforward way of limiting adverse CRS reactions. We look forward to continuing to explore the benefits of our MSCs in humans through partnerships with companies commercialising cancer immunotherapies, such as CART.”


Sepsis
Source: Cynata Investor Presentation 14 August 2020
Key Highlights (ASX Announcement 5 December 2019):
  • In a preclinical model of severe pneumonia-induced sepsis, Cymerus MSC treatment:
o Increased blood oxygen levels
o Increased lung compliance (the ability of lungs to stretch and expand)
o Decreased alveolar neutrophil infiltration (which can lead to lung injury)
o Decreased barrier permeability (which allows harmful proteins into the lungs)
o Decreased inflammation
  • The extent of each of the above benefits was statistically significant in comparison to a placebo control
  • Positive trends were also observed in a preclinical model of mild pneumonia-induced sepsis
  • Cymerus MSCs were also shown to enhance phagocytosis, both directly and indirectly. Phagocytosis is the process by which white blood cells ingest and remove bacteria and other harmful agents from the body
Professor Curley said, "There is a critical need for new therapies to treat sepsis, which is a devastating condition that can affect people at any stage of life without warning. These exciting results give us grounds for optimism that Cymerus MSCs could provide a new treatment option for these patients.”
Cynata released a Corporate Presentation in Relation to Sepsis (9 December 2019).

Organ Transplant Rejection
Key Highlights (ASX Announcement 4 September 2019):
  • Cymerus™ MSC treatment demonstrated effects expected to prevent organ transplant rejection
  • The treatment led to an increase in human TSG-6, an anti-inflammatory protein, followed by an increase in peripheral mouse regulatory T cells, which play an important role in limiting transplant rejection by establishing immune tolerance
  • Further, Cymerus™ MSC treatment also:
o suppressed cytokines (important cell signalling molecules) that cause inflammation, and increased levels of cytokines with beneficial immunomodulatory properties;
o reinstated graft functional microvascular blood flow, and oxygenation;
o prevented harmful collagen deposition; and
o limited injury to the transplanted organ
Dr Khan commented, "We are very excited by these results. Based on our findings, we believe that a clinical trial of Cymerus MSCs is warranted, as a potential option for immunosuppression in organ transplant recipients.”
The Published Paper "iPSC-derived MSC therapy induces immune tolerance and supports long-term graft survival in mouse orthotopic tracheal transplants" can be found here.

2020.10.13 19:06 ArrowDynamics2002 A Behemoth Sized TR: [Kings Island] 10 & 11 October, 2020

INTRODUCTION Early last week, I made plans to visit my home park, Kings Island on Saturday. However, plans got a bit crazy, and many dumb and crazy decisions were made much to the enjoyment of my followers on Snapchat. Some pictures can be seen above, so I hope you enjoy them. For reference,here is a link to my Top 50 roller coasters. Keep in mind I have only ridden 73 coasters, however, that number is steadily climbing.
Funding for this Trip Report is provided by my own sanity. Now, keep arms down, head back, hold on, and enjoy the ride!
DAY ONE: SATURDAY, 10 OCTOBER, 2020 We began the 40-minute drive to the park around 9:40 AM and arrived at the gates around 10:20 AM. The drive went by fast as usual, due to the fact that we were listening to Broadway the entire time. Hamilton, Falsettos, and Avenue Q were all sang horribly off-key. The park opened its gates at 10:30 AM, and instead of following the masses towards Orion, we went the opposite way towards Mystic Timbers. Faced with a surprising 5-minute wait, this time below up to 30 minutes for everyone due to the fact that someone in the front of the line needed EMS within 10 minutes of the park opening. After that small delay, we were in the station within 10 minutes, seated in the back row, quickly approaching the lift hill.
MYSTIC TIMBERS (Currently ranked 9/73): The drop on this ride is amazing, but easily one of the most forgettable moments of the ride, which is a great thing. After the swooping airtime hill over the lift, the airtime hills really began. Mystic Timbers always surprises me with every ride and has me laughing maniacally throughout the entire ride. The airtime is so strong that it manages to make my shirt into a crop top. A one-click ride (the minimum requirement) is a god-like experience, and I definitely recommend attempting this. My favorite GCI is also IMO the best GCI, save for maybe Python in Bamboo Forestor Wood Coaster.
After Mystic Timbers, we walked over to Orion, where we had a great experience, as there was a first-time rider in my group. The tallest coaster they had ever ridden was Diamondback, so they were quite nervous.
ORION (Currently ranked 5/73): The queue was filled up completely and spilling out into Area 72. Interestingly enough, the first part of the queue (down the stairs and up the ramp before the first cattle pen) took the longest time, at 30 minutes. As soon as we entered the cattle pen, the line started moving really fast. After a not so bad two hour wait, my friend and I were seated in the back row and were quickly ascending the 287-foot tall lift hill. The drop on this was insane, and I spent the entire ride watching my friend have pure joy on his face with his hands up from the top of the drop all the way to the brake run.
IN-DEPTH REVIEW: Personally, and controversially, I think Orion is the second best giga in the world, only behind Fury 325. Now, I have ridden every US giga, and was supposed to ride Leviathan this year, but we all know what happened. The drop is insane, and gives great airtime no matter where you sit. The “wave turn” is the only disappointing element on the ride, but you do get a nice floating sensation due to the banking of track. The turnaround gives a nice pop of air at the top, before a fun curving descent to ground level before my favorite moment of the ride: the Speed Hill. This hill gives amazing airtime, almost a Graceful Ejector like sensation, where you are gracefully ripped out of your seat, but you are going so fast that you slam into that lapbar. The trimmed hill is a disappointment, but it feels exactly like Diamondback’s trimmed hill. The helix is fun, if not overly intense, and the near miss between the drop and support is sadly quite forgettable. However, things ramp up with two finals great pops of airtime before hitting the brake run. The “Mini Hive Dive” is the most forceful airtime moment on the ride, and always is a surprise to me. The airtime hill into the brake run run also gives a nice pop, similar to Diamondback’s drop into the Splashdown finale. Overall, Orion is a great ride, and shouldn’t be hated on due to the fact that Kings Island didn't outdo Fury 325.
LUNCH: We decided to eat at Coney Bar-B-Que for lunch, and I ordered a pulled pork sandwich with Macaroni & Cheese. IMO, Coney Mall is the second best place to eat, only behind the Miami River Brewhouse. However, a damper was put on my meal, as the water at Coney had visible dirt particles in it, and tasted disgusting. Luckily, this was only at that restaurant, so for the rest of the day I only drank from a Freestyle Machine.
THE BAT (Currently ranked 29/73): The best Arrow currently at the park is one of my favorites. The Bat is easily the best suspended coaster in the US, due to its terrain usage and constant feeling of speed until the brake run. The swinging is insane, and headbanging is strangely absent. This is a back row ride, as like most Arrows, the drop is insane. The high swooping turn is the most dead part of the ride, but a curving drop leads into several high speed turns, and a forceful helix near Banshee’s second loop. The last two turns are taking quite fast, and the train slams to a stop and swings 2-3 more times even after coming to a complete halt.
After The Bat, we went to Starbucks where I ordered a Grande Vortex Frappuccino. It was very sweet, and one of my new favorite drinks, only behind the Orion Galaxy Smoothie. Proceeding to Subway and meeting up with a couple more friends, we created a group of 5.
BLUE RACER (Currently ranked 38/73): We waited about 25 minutes for this, however the line moved quickly due to two train operations on both sides. Red Racer has reopened, and is now known as “The Pelvic Presser” in our group. (For reference, click here). Unfortunately, the Red Racer did dispatch about 5 seconds early, so it was an uneven race. Blue Racer is running extremely well, and I recommend Row 11 on both sides, as it gives the whip and thrill of the back row, with the smoothness of the front row. This is what a classic wooden coaster feels like. There was airtime on the first drop, and the first bunny hill. Every other hill besides the former gave a floating sensation iny our stomach, but my butt never left the seat. Overall, that was the best ride I’ve ever gotten on The Racer.
ADVENTURE EXPRESS (Currently ranked 43/73): We ended up having about a 10 minute wait, where we got the back row. Unfortunately, our game that we play on ths Arrow mine train was ruined by landscaping cutting off the old leaves and branches from the tress you pass by. However, we still enjoyed a fun Arrow mine train that has a great layout that features a great night ride.
DINNER: After heading to the Wishbone Grill to see what Chef James Major was cooking up, we decided against it. The Chef Special was Cowboy Caviar, or Beef Testcles served in Pico de Gayo, with a side of Grilled Pork loin and Grilled Vegetables. So we went back to Coney Bar-B-Que, where we ate the Chef Special there, which was Cranberry Sausage. It was a really good cut, and I ended up only eating one of two they gave me.
RED RACER (Currently ranked 47/73): After dinner, we ended up going back to The Racer, where we had about a 10 minute wait. This time, we rode in the same rows, but switched sides. We were in the lead until the turnaround, where we were trimmed, allowing Blue Racer to beat us by an entire train length. The airtime was good, and the retracked portions of the ride were smooth. At this time, it was about 15 minutes until closing, so we went back to Area 72, and with about 10 minutes to spare, we got in line for Orion.
ORION (Currently ranked 5/73): Waiting about 90 minutes, we were the second-to last group in line, but when they weren’t looking, we jumped a switchback backwards to be the last group in line. (Funnily enough, this unnamed couple will appear at the end of tomorrow.) I was assigned to Row 7, where I had a solid 2 inches of room between myself and the lap bar. Afterward, we waited for our ride to show up, and we passed the time by walking around the park taking photos, and doing something known as dinosaur races. Hanging out in the parking lot, waiting for our ride to arrive, we left the park around 21:40
DAY TWO: SUNDAY, 11 OCTOBER, 2020
Arriving at my house close to 23:00 last night, I began to start my three-hour trek of Biology, Algebra II, Spanish II, and an English essay. Retiring to bed at the exact time of 02:30 AM, I got a grand total of five hours of glorious sleep before waking up at 07:30 AM to mow the grass. Unfortunately, after filling up the gas tank, and rolling it out there, the mower refused to start. I guess coffee didn't help it either. To add insult to injury, it started pouring, meaning that even now (Tuesday, 13 October) I still have only gotten about ⅓ of the yard complete. I spent my extra time lying in bed and watching two episodes of Lucifer on Netflix, which is a rather good show that I recommend to anyone in quarantine. Leaving my house at 09:40 once again, we arrived at the park 15 minutes early to find the gates already open, and the rides already running, which is something I love seeing.
MYSTIC TIMBERS (Currently ranked 9/73): To start the day off energized, we went to Mystic Timbers, which had a 10-minute wait. Assigned to the front row, I was off with a one-click ride. Mystic Timbers is truly a front row ride. The airtime is insane, coupled with the fact that you feel like you are the only one experiencing this, as the roar of the wooden track drowns out all the screams of the other passengers.
THE BEAST (Currently ranked 18/73): Straying from our planned itinerary, we followed the pawprints through Rivertown that led to The Beast. Walking right up to the station, I was given my desired back row ride. The Beast, in my opinion, is a back row ride if one wishes for the most intense experience possible. In all honesty, a back row night ride rivals the intensity of Intimidator 305 for me. The front row is amazing for the same reason as Mystic Timbers, but for me, Row 18 is the way to go on this masterpiece of a wooden coaster. The lift was taken at its comically slow pace, and the drop was delivered to us trimless. A furiously intense turnaround and a second drop delivered some unexpected airtime, before a lateral filled turn into the exposed brake shed, where we, unfortunately, slowed down. The train began picking up speed again, showing just how crazy the terrain on this coaster actually is. All the unbanked turns before the third (banked) drop delivered crazy laterals, and the banked drop was taken so fast it was over before I even realized we had done it. Hitting the second lift hill, we ascended to the top, and with my hands stretched up, we began our fourth (and final) banked drop, possibly the most famous part of this ride. The helix delivered the most insane laterals I have experienced (yes, over Intimidator 305and Maverick), as of now. After the insane double helix, we climbed back up into the final brake run, ending our nearly 5-minute romp through the woods. The Beast is one of my favorite coasters here and is a must-ride for every visit to the park.
WINDSEEKER: Waiting about 3 minutes, I was soon seated, kicking my shoes off, and ascending up to Giga coaster heights on this Mondial swing ride. It was fun, relaxing, and cold up there. Interestingly enough, there are still two track segments of the late Vortex sitting on its plot of land. I wonder if they’ll try to make us feel the opening date price once again if you know what I mean.
LUNCH: It was already lunchtime, so we went back to Coney-Bar B-Que for the third, and final time of this trip. Ordering the St. Louis style ribs, they were, unfortunately, mediocre at best, which was a let down for me. Not wanting to risk another experience with the water there, I decided on Powerade from the Freestyle Machine nearby.
ORION (Currently ranked 5/73): Waiting about 90 minutes, we had another first-time rider with us, who unfortunately decided it was a good idea to ignore the people she was in line with and watch TikTok. I don’t even know how one can be entertained for 90 minutes while watching TikTok. Going up the stairs into the station, we were assigned the front row and were soon dispatching. I was one train behind them, so watching her face while going through the nicknamed “Onion Ring” was hilarious. There was a mixture of pure joy and unadulterated terror on her face, reminding me just how much fun it is bringing a first-time rider to the park. Once again, the airtime was insane, and the speed hill was the highlight of the ride. My only complaint is that I wish they would bring back access passes, as when timed right you would be able to just walk right on the coaster. This particular ride marked my 25th ride on this brand new Giga coaster, meaning that this is the attraction I have ridden the most this year, followed by Banshee at just 13 rides.
FLIGHT OF FEAR (Currently ranked 31/73): Waiting one hour for this prototype launch coaster, we were assigned to the memeified Row 6 (courtesy of Taylor Bybee and rollercoasterjerk). The launch was thrilling, if not overly intense, showing that even the slowest accelerations can still be thrilling. The return of the on-ride camera at the end of the launch track is not a welcome addition in my book, as it blinds the riders and causing some eye pain. The cobra roll and sidewinder were forceful and fairly smooth. The ascending helix and banked turn into the midcourse were unfortunately rough, with the banked turn delivering several jarring lateral movements that shouldn’t be possible on a turn taken at or around 30mph. The midcourse break run brought us to a dead stop, and the curved drop and oscillating helix were fun. It is always a weird sensation to be hanging sideways while slowly speeding up. The quick transition from left to right was fun, if not as thrilling as the outdoor versions. The final low to the ground helix was thrilling, and the corkscrew always takes me by surprise. The final break run decides to try to kill everybody one last time, by taken you to a dead stop, slamming the back of your head into the headrest. My only complaint about the coaster are the trains. As with the majority of Premier coasters, contortion is required to be able to ride. Other than that, FOF is a great ride that provides a nice break from the hot temperature.
RED RACER (Currently ranked 47/73): Meeting up with one of the friends from yesterday, we attempted a rematch on The Racer. This time, we were dispatched evenly, but yet again, a nasty trim led us to lose the race. Better luck next time I guess.
XTREME SKYFLYER: Heading into Action Zone, we were greeted with a $5 dollar price for Xtreme Skyflyer, and while purchasing our tickets, we encountered a computer problem. Waiting for the supervisor to show up, a mother came up to me and gave me her ticket saying “My child chickened out and I don’t want to waste money. Have a free flight on me.” Taking one of my friends, we were soon suited up after buying another ticket for the rest of the group. Using my free ticket, My friend and I were being pulled up 168 feet in the air before falling face first and flying for a solid two minutes. A note to anyone flying on this: Make sure to be ready to grab the loop when they tell you. Even if you are flying backward, you must grab it. Lest the lone person who does grab it will receive a nasty surprise in some arm whiplash. Coming to a stop, I stayed on the platform for Round #2 with the rest of our group, the only difference being that it was my turn to pull the cord. Rising up once again, I soon was looking upside down and backward trying to find the cord. Pulling it, we soon were plummeting 150 feet once again and spreading our arms out to fly. Grabbing the loop once again, my final flight had come to an end. Overall, I definitely recommend this one, but only if it is priced at $5 dollars.
Taking a break at Starbucks, I ordered the Vortex Frappucino and ended up running into Wildcat Coasters. We chatted for a while and were laughing at how I had ended up winning two of her giveaways. A free pin with her logo on it was a nice touch to the conversation, and I really enjoyed talking with her. Grabbing our drinks, we sat down at a table and played several rounds of Among Us. Finishing our drinks, we headed back to Action Zone where we got on Banshee.
BANSHEE (Currently ranked 19/73): Faced with a 10-minute wait, we were given row 5, where we enjoyed an intense, and smooth ride on this crazy B&M Invert. Getting off, we went back in line and were assigned row 7 after just another 10-minute wait. Same experience as before, with an extra whip on the crazy twisted drop. Interestingly enough, if a member in your row is not wearing a mask during the on-ride photo, the park is cutting that half of the picture out and is selling the other half only. This is nice as it allows the photo to still be purchased even if a single rider tries to ruin it.
ADVENTURE EXPRESS (Currently ranked 43/73): Attempting to get in line for The Bat, we decided the wait was too long, so we abandoned that plan. Running to Adventure Express, we walked right on to the back row, where we came up with a new game. Facing backward on this coaster makes the ride so much more insane. This ride was actually scary. The turns slammed me into my partner, and it made the coaster so much more thrilling.
THE HOME ALONE EXPERIENCE: A truly stressful situation, we wanted to be the last ones in line for Diamondback. Being on the opposite side of the park, we ran over to Rivertown, and needed to get dinner. Unfortunately, our plan fell through as Tom+Chee was unfortunately closed. Going to The Potato Works near Mystic Timbers. We ordered and got our food in a record breaking 2 minutes. Running back to Diamondback, we had 30 seconds to spare before the line cut off. Waiting for the last train of the night, we were the second to last group in line, requiring the group in front of us to actually go in front, so we could be behind them. (Funnily enough, they were the same couple we got behind last night on Orion).
DIAMONDBACK (Currently ranked 11/73): Assigned to Row 10, the ride operators granted our requests for minimum checks. I had a solid 3 inches of room between myself and the lap bar. Cheering commenced as the ride began, and we slowly ascended the 230ft tall lift hill. Reaching the top, we plummeted down the steep drop with some amazing floater airtime before flying over two massive airtime hills delivering the same amount, if not more airtime than the first drop. The turnaround was fun, and delivered a slight breather before the worst part of the ride: The trimmed hill. This hill begins with a valley after the turnaround that causes some insane rattling and vibration, and this moment alone can give headaches after multiple rerides. Fortunately, the rest of the coaster is butter smooth. The hill gives mediocre airtime, easily the weakest amount of any moment on the ride. An upwards helix punctured by a blinding on-ride camera led into the mid-course break run, with a small pop going into, and coming out of that hill. Barely being trimmed, the coaster then goes over three more bunny hills before a helix near The Beast. A great pop of airtime similar to the one on Orion’s “mini hive dive” is delivered before the splashdown finale, and a final pop into the brake run. Overall, Diamondback is a great ride, and one of the few elite hypercoasters B&M has built. It is up there in the leagues of Mako, Shambhala, and Goliath at Six Flags Over Georgia.
Diamondback was a great end to the night, and we again took a photo lap before hanging out near the Sweet Spot where we played Bean Boozled for a fat 20 minutes. Leaving the park after taking the classic photo in front of the Kings Island sign, we left the park before being picked up. I arrived at home to another large pile of homework and a nearly sleepless night. This was by far my favorite visits to the park, and I had loads of fun with all the new people I met. I will be visiting one final time on closing day, and attempt LROTSOO (Last Ride of the Season on Orion). Look forward to that TR sometime around early November.
Finally, for all those who read the entire TR, here is a small surprise.

2020.10.13 09:27 TserriednichHuiGuo If Huawei goes under, how many US and international companies will go down with it? - George Tait Edwards

1 Answer: Huawei is not in the least likely “go under”, so the presumption in your question is totally inaccurate.
2 Discussion See George Tait Edwards's answer to Huawei is stopping its chipset sector next month. Will it be alright? and note Don Hank's answer to What can the US government do in order to keep American world dominance into the 21st century? The short answer is of course “Nothing effective.”
3 Conclusion The investment funds being made available by the PBoC to Huawei and others for the further development of 5G are about $7.5tr, or about twice the TOTAL investment level of the USA, or about 3.75% of US GDP. And note Don Hank’s comments
“China’s retaliation in Huawei's battle for survival
Sept 9, 2020­
Beijing has allocated $1.5 trillion to urgently build its own engineering base to design and manufacture advanced processors.
As noted earlier, Washington came up with what it figures – not without reason – was an effective move to destroy the Chinese technological leadership in microelectronics.
Relying on its residual control over the global financial system, the United States put the ultimatum squarely to the Taiwanese processor manufacturer TSMC. If it does not stop supplying processors to China, primarily Huawei, then America will cut off its access to the American market, and also use sanctions to force many of TSMC's partners throughout the world to refuse to cooperate with it. Before that, the Americans bought out another world leader in the production of processors - MediaTek.
The owners of the Taiwanese company surrendered and announced the termination of shipments of their products to Huawei starting September 15 of this year. The blow was powerful. At the China Info 100 conference, Huawei's top manager Richard Yu said, "We have no processors or organized shipments." The latest flagships of the company with proprietary Kirin chipsets will be the Mate 40 series smartphones. [The premium chip Kirin, used in Huawei’s smartphones, is made by TSMC. There is currently no other manufacturer that can meet its standards]
The Chinese giant rushed frantically to buy up all the available volumes of not only packaged ready-made processors, but also uncut and not even fully tested chips. Just to create enough stock to continue the production of finished products for the next 6-8 months.” and
“Judging by what has happened now, the Chinese leadership has figured out how to use this temporary head start. Two completely Chinese-owned companies - QXIC (Quanxin Integrated Circuit Manufacturing) and HSMC (Wuhan Hongxin Semiconductor Manufacturing Co) – have received financial support from the PRC government and over the past month have lured away 50 leading development engineers from TSMC to their staff. [I predicted this in a previous post on Quora]
“It might seem that only 100 people can mean little against the background of 6 thousand strong engineering corps of the Taiwanese chip developer and manufacturer. But the fact is, the company had only 160 leading specialists with Ph.Ds,, a hundred of which have already moved to the mainland.”
Huawei will flourish to a massive extent, as will China.
