The largest collection of public internet censorship data ever compiled shows that even citizens of what are considered the world's freest countries aren't safe from internet censorship.
The University of Michigan team used its own Censored Planet tool, an automated censorship tracking system launched in 2018, to collect more than 21 billion measurements over 20 months in 221 countries.
While the United States saw a small uptick in blocking, mostly driven by individual companies or internet service providers filtering content, the study did not uncover widespread censorship.

2020.11.03 09:37 Tsumanu Laicyzacja Polski to kwestia czasu

Widzę obecną sytuację w kraju jako dogorywającą abonimację, która wykonuje swoje ostatnie przedśmiertne podrygi. W Polsce już od przynajmniej 2013 radykalna wiara obumiera w zastraszającym tempie. Wtedy to po raz pierwszy opublikowano informację, że ilość kandydatów na księży w Polsce spadła o 48% w stosunku do 2005. Spada ilość chrztów, coraz więcej osób występuje (chociaż nie jest to łatwa droga i nie rzadko poza osobistym sukcesem niewiele zmienia, pracownicy kościoła nie skreślają osoby z listy).
Coraz mniej osób też chodzi do kościoła. Młodzi znają również obce kultury, ponieważ poznali faktycznych ludzi za granicą i wiedzą, że inność nie oznacza czegoś złego, a na świecie istnieją wyznawcy Islamu również centryczni co centryczny Chrześcijanin.
Na przestrzeni najdalej 30 lat Polska już nie będzie katolickim państwem religijnym, ponieważ Ci, którzy ją czynią taką powoli będą wymierać. Obecna sytuacja z Covid-19 przez nieudolność władzy zresztą przyśpieszy ten proces, bo Ci którzy chcą zatrzymać czas, a wręcz cofnąć nas 100 lat są najbardziej narażeni.
To co się dzieje od 5 lat to naiwna próba czegoś co nigdy niekomu się nie udało. W przeszłości odpowiednie instytucje miały narzędzia jedynie żeby spowolnić to co dzisiaj dzieje się coraz szybciej i szybciej. Internet, wakacje za granicą, turyści. To wszystko uczy nas wzajemnego szacunku i uniemożliwia przedstawianie innych jako potworów jedzących dzieci.
Chciałbym żeby moje dziecko swoją młodość zaczęło już w nowej rzeczywistości, w której polski kościół katolicki podzieli los kościoła katolickiego w krajach, które dawno przeszły transformację, a dawne budynki kościelne służą za bary, ale jestem gotów poczekać. Czy to będzie 5, 10, 20 czy nawet 30 lat. To nie ważne, to i tak się wydarzy, bo to się dzieje od dawna.

2020.10.23 10:33 Logiman43 How PIS destroyed Poland.

EDIT: This post is in an article format with pictures and graphs here
I can't be silent anymore. In 2018, out of 1076 abortions in Poland, 1 was because of rape, 25 because it was dangerous for the woman's life and 1050 because of an unhealthy fetus. It means that PIS just totally banned abortion in Poland
Too few Europeans are aware of the depth of this crisis. The current Polish government is destroying the country from inside-out with its nepotism, religious zeal, communistic tactics, social programs and funding verge organizations (or trolls). It breaks every single law, making unconstitutional laws since 2015 and destroying the court of law. How Poland is pushing EU into crisis - rise of populism. The video is 2 years old and now it's worst
PIS staffed every single judicial court with its own people (ending the impartiality of judges). The very aggressive social 500+ program increased the job inactivity of Poles to 48% (48% of 15+ Polish citizens are NEET. Unemployment is at 5-6%). The Job vacancies in Poland are at the lowest level in EU. The corruption and nepotism is rampant, more than 1000 family members and friends are in public companies or in different Ministries. Polish PIS high ranking politicians are also making money together with pimps and mafia (see scandals down there). They are also giving millions of euros from public money to the Catholic Church. They are paying trolls to spew hate on Facebook, via Whatsapp and on the web. Some of them are hiding and not prosecuting pedophiles in the Catholic Church. Poland has almost the lowest innovation in EU. In 15 indexes tracking freedom and democracy in Europe Poland went from an average position of 12 out of 28 in 2010 to 23 out of 28 in 2019. I mean, not to diminish Trump’s “awesomeness” but imagine if the WHOLE republican party in the US was Trump-like. Shady deals, family in the govt, creating discord, staffing courts with their own judges. I’m just mortified.
For further reading I recommend: Sadurski, Wojciech. "Poland's Constitutional Breakdown", Oxford University Press, 2019.

Why Poland’s “ghost election” sends a warning about its democracy
Wikipedia about this blunder

Destruction of the rule of law.

Some of the passages below are taken from this pdf
No member state in the history of the EU has ever gone as far in subjugating its courts to executive control as the current Polish government. The Polish case has become a test whether it is possible to create a Soviet-style justice system in an EU member state; a system where the control of courts, prosecutors and judges lies with the executive and a single party.
Across Europe, national courts recognise the judgements of courts in other member states, whether these involve commercial law, the European arrest warrant or child custody. Judges must assume that courts across the EU operate according to common values and principles set out in the European Union Treaty and in its Charter of Fundamental Rights. Once judges across the EU have reason to doubt whether courts in any member state provide effective judicial protection, the legal order on which the EU rests collapses.
Freedom house - How PIS captured Poland’s Courts

Constitutional Tribunal changes

It all began with the constitutional crisis four years ago. Constitutional crisis and the destruction of the rule of law In 2015, parliament changed the law on the Constitutional Tribunal, which rules on the constitutionality of legislation. The changes allowed them to annul the nominations of three judges made by the previous parliament and appoint their own. It shortened the terms of the tribunal's president and vice-president from nine to three years. The tribunal ruled the move unconstitutional in an open rebellion, but the dispute remains unresolved. Julia Przylebska - was illegally named the president of the Tribunal court by the president. And now Kaczynski, the PM have meetings at her house. Nice separation of power
There's too much to describe. For further info please visit the link. It is an amazing summary of the whole ordeal. timeline

Supreme Court changes

The European Commission, the EU's executive arm, said one of the most controversial reforms was to do with the Supreme court, which, among other duties, is responsible for confirming election results. The idea was to lower the age of retirement for Supreme Court justices from 70 to 65, but allow the Polish president to grant a five-year extension to whomever they deemed worthy. In 2019, the European Court of Justice (ECJ) — the EU's highest court —ruled this was illegal, after an interim decision ordered 20 already-sacked judges be reinstated. Of course, PIS chose 2 new Constitutional judges, A politician Pawlowicz with communistic past and Piotrowicz, also a politician and a prosecutor that was an active communist during the 80 that prosecuted Solidarnosc. Both of them are above 65 years old.

Ordinary court judges

There were also moves to try a similar tactic in the general court system for judges and public prosecutors, lowering the age of retirement for women to 60 and for men to 65, down from the current 67. Under the reforms the justice minister, who is appointed by the ruling party, would have the power to extend a judge's term. The laws were somewhat adjusted after pressure from the European Commission, but in November 2019 the ECJ shot down these laws, too, citing gender discrimination and political influence over the judiciary.

Disciplinary measures for judges

Another PiS addition allowed judges to be investigated and sanctioned for their court rulings. The disciplinary hearings and procedures were to be carried out by judges selected via parliament. These reforms were criticized by the European Commission because "judges are not insulated from political control and thus judicial independence is violated." The commission brought legal action against Poland on this matter in October 2019.

National Council of the judiciary takeover

In 2017 PiS remodeled the National Council of the Judiciary, which selects candidates for appointment as judges by the President of the Republic. This allowed it, in the short term, to control appointments to the Supreme Court – including to a newly created Disciplinary Chamber, which hears disciplinary cases against judges, and to a new Extraordinary Appeals Chamber, which adjudicates on electoral issues. Over time PiS’ take-over of the National Judicial Council allows it to reshape the entirety of the judiciary. Fifteen of the 25 members of the National Council of the Judiciary were previously elected by judges themselves, as is common practice across Europe for such bodies. These fifteen judges are now elected by the majority in the Sejm, the lower chamber of the Polish parliament. The other ten members of the National Council of the Judiciary are: four members from the Sejm itself (all four members of PiS), two members from the Senate, one representative of the President of the Republic, the Minister of Justice, the president of the Supreme Court and the president of the Supreme Administrative Court. In total 23 of the 25 positions are directly appointed by political authorities.
After the election of the new KRS, a publication of the list with the names of judges declaring their support for specific candidates was refused. The Supreme Administrative Court ruled that those names must be disclosed. However, the Chancellery of the Sejm has yet to carry out the NSA’s ruling. The Constitutional Tribunal (TK) and the President of the Personal Data Protection Office have been roped into guarding the secret. KRS destruction

Muzzle bill

The muzzle bill passed Dec 2019, victimize judges questioning the legitimacy of the government’s legal appointments, saying it is unlawful to “show hostility to other authorities of the Republic of Poland and its constitutional organs or to critisize the basic principles of the Republic of Poland.”The bill also delegalise the preliminary questions to the Court of Justice of the EU (CJEU). The bill also allows to fire judges ( which is unconstitutional according to the Constitution). In average Ziobro dismissed a judge every day and a half from its position of president of court source

One of the worse Covid19 laws in EU.

Trampling Fundamental freedoms using a single ordnance and Critiquing the President will land you a year in jail. report.
In the latest special Covid19 law (already 4th lol) PIS smuggled an article straight from a communistic playbook about prosecuting people that critique the president. The sentence can be up to a year. They also smuggled a harsher law for abortions. Can someone tell me HOW it is related to Covid19? source

Political scandals

Illegal presidential pardon

Illegal presidential pardon for CBA chief Kaminski In 2013, Law and Justice (PiS) MP Mariusz Kamiński – who served as head of the anti-corruption agency from 2006 and 2009 – was found guilty of overstepping his powers. He was sentenced to three years in prison and was banned from holding public office for ten years. Polish President Andrzej Duda pardoned Kamiński even though he was still appealing his sentence at the time. The case against Kamiński was then discontinued. A supreme court judge said that the president interfered in the legal process because Kamiński was proven neither innocent nor guilty when he was pardoned, making a future ruling redundant. The judge said that the president can pardon someone after any final appeal has been heard “because then he is not interfering with the judiciary”.

Merging the General Prosecutor with the political Minister of Justice

The general prosecutor role was merged with the minister of justice Ziobro. source. This handed Ziobro and his subordinates greatly expanded power to politically interfere with rank-and-file prosecutors, their decisions, and their freedoms of speech and association. Poland Is Purging Its Prosecutors
200+ public prosecutors that are loyal to the Minister of Justice Ziobro (from PIS) All of them got promotions (or someone from their family) or pay raises. another list

Destroying the military

The creation of a territorial defense unit- a civilian army led by the ministry of defense to control “the situation inside Poland”. In addition, there was a purge of generals. and killing multibillion deals with France. About 37 generals and 47 colonels left. Why? Because they had to answer to a 27-year old assistant to the Defense Minister, former pharmacy assistant without a university degree. The Rzeczpospolita daily newspaper reported that Misiewicz was given a top communications job with PGZ ( largest defense consortiums in Central Europe) that pays $12,500 a month, huge sum in a country where the average pre-tax wage is about $1,150 a month. source

In 2015, the Defence minister Macierewicz raided the Nato center in Warsaw at 1am to take control of documents and place their man at the helm

The ministry of Justice is funding trolls to destroy judges

Ziobro-Piebiak paid Troll scandal The Onet news portal published a report alleging that Deputy Justice Minister Łukasz Piebiak “arranged and controlled” an online campaign against Judge Krystian Markiewicz, the head of Iustitia, a judicial organization critical of the government’s efforts to restructure the judicial system, as well as against other inconvenient judges. According to the Onet report, Piebiak operated and financed an online campaign by a woman called Emilia who allegedly sent over 2,000 letters and emails about Markiewicz to other judges as well as to pro-government right-wing media. The messages contained fabricated, semi-confirmed and gossipy details of the judge’s personal life. According to Onet, Emilia obtained Markiewicz’s personal address from Piebiak so she could send him one of the letters.

Taking over the state media

State media was taken over by PIS and is using mass propaganda and here Not only they are a propaganda tube but they also offend polish citizens ie – translation: defenders of pedophiles and alimonies-takers are the ones against judiciary reforms. They call every peaceful protest as a coup
The same can be said about the GUS – general statistical bureau. It is controlled by PIS and it is known to “change” metrics so every Inflation or unemployment metrics can’t be trusted.

LBGT-free zones and Xenophobia.

Fear against refugees and calls for xenophobia. A leaked draft of a new Polish migration policy discriminates against Muslims, ranks foreigners according to ethnicity and breaches human rights
My article Why the Polish government is against LGBT?
PIS is supporting LGBT free zones where a thrid of Poland is declared as LGBT-free. During the presidential elections in 2020 Gay “ideology” is worse than communism, says Duda - PIS president.

Destroying education and HealthCare.

PIS cancels the in vitro program Polish government program that covered most of the in vitro costs was immediately cut by the Law and Justice Party when it came to power in late 2015, even though Poland has one of the lowest birth rates in the EU. Catholic Church opposition to IVF is widely seen as one factor in the Polish government's decision.
PIS also increased the minimum wage at the beginning of 2020. It created a weird paradox where a teacher and a starting MD is earning less than the minimal wage because they get paid from public money and the minimal wage change is for the private sector. And PIS wants to ban sex ed by labeling teachers as gay activists and pedophiles. Critics say Poland’s governing Law and Justice Party is wrecking the education system for political gain — and students are suffering.

Environment?

Destruction of the oldest European forest in Poland by Minister of Environment Szyszko The Bialowieza Forest is a UNESCO World Heritage site that sprawls across the border between Poland and Belarus, occupying almost 580 square miles of woodland and providing home to rare European wood bison among others. At least 10,000 trees are thought to have been felled in Białowieża, since the Polish environment minister, Jan Szyzko tripled logging limits there in 2016. The EU’s highest court has ruled that Poland’s logging in the Unesco-protected Białowieża forest is illegal, potentially opening the door to multi-million euro fines.
“Our (water) resources are comparable to those of Egypt,” it said in the report bearing the ominous title: “Poland, European Desert”

Nepotism and colleagues in state-owned companies

PIS won the elections by wanting to fight nepotism. The most famous was “24yo Misiewicz, a former pharmacy assistant without a university degree was in the defense industry under Macierewicz. The apparent favoritism has raised ethics concerns in a party that won office promising to fight corruption.” source There is even a webpage listing more than 1000 cases of nepotism under PIS Pisiewicze
Latest data show 162M PLN to 84 PIS oligarchs and Colleagues

Illegal budget for 2017

The 2017 budget "was adopted" not in the Sejm assembly hall, but in a smaller room where the so-called parliamentary session was held immediately as a follow-up to the meeting of the parliamentary causus of PIS, where no reliable counting of vates was possible, and with many allegations taht the opposition MPs were not allowed in. [Constitutional Democracy in Crisis?, Oxfoord, 2018, p.268]

Ex-communists in PIS ranks. And PIS is very anti-left and anti-PRL.

They are accusing the opposition – PO - to consist mostly of ex-communists or communistic party members or collaborators. The issue is that most members of PO fought against the communism and spent months/years in prison in the ’80. On the other hand, the PIS party members scarcely fought for polish liberty and some of its party members are former communistic party members or communistic prosecutors like Piotrowicz! Some Polish TC judge are also ex-PRL members. Here is a list in polish of all current PIS party members who served as PRL members during the communistic era. So, PIS is fighting against itself. Another list with 20 names of ex-party members now in PIS

Funding the Catholic church with public money

PIS is very Pro-Catholic, most of their voters are devout Catholics. So it is no surprise that PIS is funding religious orgs from public money. Since Law and Justice came to power in 2015, Father Rydzyk’s businesses have received at least $55 million in subsidies from at least 10 ministries and state companies. His Radio Maryja station, which reaches millions and is often the sole source of information for many older voters in rural Poland, offers a daily diet of horror stories about a world without faith, where gay people control the political agenda, universities are corrupted by “neo-Marxists,” and the Roman Catholic Church is under mortal threat. Rydzyk Embroiled in Corruption Allegations
Hiding Pedophilia. Map of 259 victims of catholic pedophilia. When a documentary was released before recent local elections revealing devastating examples of how priests sexually abused children and how church officials covered it up, many in PIS saw it not as evidence of an institution that lost its way, but one that needed to be defended. Piotrowicz, the above communist prosecutor, dismissed in 2001 a case against a priest accused of raping six girls.

Smolensk commission

The so-called assassination of Kaczynski's twin president brother in Smolensk created 90M PLN of costs. PIS created a "cult" around his death and even created a special commission that would prove it was an assassination. Kaczynski was using it on every occasion Don't wipe your treacherous mugs with .... Ofc they didn’t prove anything and they buried the topic. Every 10th of every month for 3 years, PIS party leader Kaczynski was making a "show" commemorating his dead twin brother. He was using the police to secure his demonstration even if he has no lawful power (he is neither a president, neither the prime minister). New law expanding police surveillance and the police is getting raises after raises to keep them happy. The commemorations, the commission and the damages (paid only to the politicians’ families, not to the crew) amounted to 91M PLN.

The welfare revolution

PIS is also very pro-family. The party is giving away 500zl per month for every kid. In short, it has “bought” the elections. The polish economy is unable to sustain such an endeavor roots of populism. And it costs the economy 80B PLN between 2016 and 2019. The best part? Rate of births is negative for the last couple of years and inflation is still growing. According to the PIS Stats bureau it is 3.5% and growing. However, many journalists made their own baskets of normal good and services and the inflation is closer to 10%. Additionally there is a growing debt that PIS tries to hide by shifting some debt into other Funds. One of them is the “Solidarity fund” that is not counted in the overall polish GDP, that is to support people with disabilities will pay for the 13th and 14th pension of people 65+.

Funding propaganda and trolls

Computational Propaganda in Poland: Russian troll factories
PIS bought the Pegasus spyware to spy on its citizens In September 2018, private broadcaster TVN24 reported that Poland’s state audit body, NIK, was questioning an outlay of over 33 million zloty (€7.6 million euro) by the Justice Fund, a government fund to help victims of crime. According to TVN, the money went toward the purchase of a “new system to spy on telephones and computers, the most expensive system in the history of Polish secret services.” Reports that the covertly purchased system could be Pegasus — a top-performing spyware that is impossible to track — surfaced last week.
Polish troll farms promoting Duda and Kaczynski

Funding public TV stations

Polish public TV stations should be impartial and public. Not favoring any party nor government and give the same screen time to every party equally. Unfortunately, there was a purge of journalists the moment PIS won the election and the propaganda is stalin-like. Look at this graph how it changed. Polish TVP is the mouthpiece of the govt. In 2020 PIS voted to give an additional 2B pln per year for 5 years to public tv.

Scandals

PIS has hundreds of scandals that each would destroy a modern government. They defrauded billions of PLN over the years, put 1000’s of family members in different state-owned companies. Below are listed the main sexual and financial scandals.
  1. Sex hotel of the head of the Audit office Marian Banaś , a Law and Justice (PiS) politician and recently appointed chief of Poland’s Supreme Audit Office has been heavily embroiled in a corruption scandal, another to hit the ruling party just weeks before the country votes in a parliamentary election. Mr Banaś served as finance minister from June to August this year, and is a key figure in the party. Mr Banaś concealed his possession of a tenement house in Krakow from his financial disclosures. This property was then revealed to have deep running connections with a local, criminally-run escort agency. He claimed that the house was given to him by an old friend whom he met in the Home Army, which he then renovated. In his disclosures, he claimed he would sell the house, which never happened. Banaś claims that this was due to the buyer’s inability to get a loan. Investigations have further revealed that Mr Banaś agreed to rent the property for 5000 zloty a month, 10,000 zloty lower than its estimated market value, according to Gazeta Wyborcza. Just as the scandal could not apparently get any worse for Mr Banaś, further investigation by journalist Bertold Kittel revealed criminal links. When Mr Kittel entered the property he found at the reception an infamous Krakow criminal known as one of the brothers K – Wiesław or Janusz, who control escort agencies in the region. While still under investigation, there have been suggestions of contact between the two.
  2. "Alleged" Pedophila and Sex trafficking scandal of House speaker Wirtualna Polska learned the contents of the message of CBA officer Wojciech J. to the prosecutor's office about the failure of the head of the CBA, Ernest Bejda. In the background is a lost record with a recording of one of the leading PiS politicians who should have sex with a minor Ukrainian girl lost. His name falls on the document. In the message, Wojciech J. refers to several reports that he was the head of the office in connection with the "unauthorized access to his armored cabinet during his absence" submitted. From this vault, a record should be lost in escort agencies from the Podkarpacie region. One of the leading PiS politicians should have sex with a young Ukrainian in the recording. The statement signed by lawyer Beata Bosak-Kruczek mentions the name of Sejm spokesman Marek Kuchciński.
  3. Health minister Szumowski alleged to have bought £1m of PPE from ski instructor friend during pandemic. And givng away £65m grants to companies run by brother public anger has exploded after Polish newspaper Gazeta Wyborcza reported that Szumowski bought masks with fake certificates from a skiing instructor who is friends with his businessman brother, Marcin. Poland’s Health Ministry reportedly spent five million zloty (£1m) on 120,000 FFP-2 type face masks and 20,000 surgical masks that were later found not to meet safety standards, Politico says. The company that sold the masks was registered on the 30 of March and won the govt. contract on the same day. Critics have also questioned Szumowski’s previous dealings in government. Polish news network tvn24 reports that while serving as deputy science minister in 2016-17, he gave 300 million zloty (£60m) in grants from Poland’s National Centre for Research and Development (NCBR) to OncoArendi Therapeutics, a research company run by his brother. Another company in which Szumowski was a shareholder, Life Science Innovation (LSI), was reportedly given a 24 million zloty (£5m) NCBR grant just days after he took up the ministerial post.
  4. Same Health minister Szumowski bought 1.2 thousand ventilators for PLN 200 million from a company owned by an arms dealer, not a single device was delivered

2020.10.13 19:35 howdoesilogin Przegląd Partii - Partia Zieloni

Po dłuższej przerwie wracam z kolejną odsłoną przeglądu. Tym razem Zieloni, partia będąca częścią Koalicji Obywatelskiej.
Historia formacji
Partia Zieloni została założona w 2003 przez osoby o poglądach proekologicznych i feministycznych wywodzące się z organizacji pozarządowych. Od początku charakteryzuje się mocno pro-unijnym stanowiskiem i ściśle współpracuje z grupą Zieloni – Wolny Sojusz Europejski w Parlamencie Europejskim. Przez lata partia startując samodzielnie lub w koalicji z ugrupowaniami lewicowymi uzyskiwała śladowe poparcie poniżej 1% czy maksymalnie kilku procent w wyborach lokalnych.
Przełomowym momentem dla ugrupowania okazała się decyzja o wejściu do Koalicji Europejskiej z PO, PSL, Nowoczesną i SLD w lutym 2019. Choć w majowych wyborach do PE Zieloni nie zdobyli żadnego mandatu, to kontynuacja współpracy z PO szybko przyniosła dużo lepsze rezultaty. W październikowych wyborach parlamentarnych Zielonym udało się zdobyć aż trzy mandaty poselskie, co dla partii samodzielnie mającej tak niewielkie poparcie jest niebywałym sukcesem.
Ludzie
Warto wspomnieć, że Zieloni od początku istnienia stosują parytety a partii przewodniczy dwoje współprzewodniczących zawsze kobieta i mężczyzna. Do prominentnych działaczy należy zaliczyć:
Program
Co trzeba zielonym przyznać jak na tak drobną partię mają nieźle zrobioną stronę internetową i naprawdę bogaty program Ciekawym polecam lekturę całego programu, natomiast tutaj skupię się raczej na postulatach poza ekologicznymi (które są oczywistością i jest ich w programie cała masa) bo zakładam, że tych którym one na sercu leżą Zieloni w tej kwestii przekonywać nie muszą.
Dodatkowo poskracałem też treść postulatów i pousuwałem również wszystkie ‘kandydatom i kandydatkom’, ‘lekarzom i lekarkom’, ‘obywatelkom i obywatelom’, ‘każdej i każdemu’ itd. Tak żeby wszystko zajmowało choć trochę mniej miejsca i żeby było łatwiejsze do przeczytania. Jak ktoś chce mnie ze względu na to okrzyknąć mizoginem, faszystą itp. to oczywiście zapraszam do komentarzy
Ochrona środowiska:
Energetyka:
Gospodarka:
Praca i polityka społeczna:
System emerytalny:
Edukacja:
System wyborczy:
Polityka Zagraniczna:
Stan Partii
Moim skromnym zdaniem Zieloni są na dobrej drodze żeby wreszcie zaistnieć na polskiej scenie politycznej. Po pierwsze partia wreszcie doczekała się liderów, którzy nie są kompletnie anonimowi i co ważniejsze są w parlamencie a więc mają platformę by propagować swoje poglądy. Po drugie zważając na to, że jednymi z głównych zarzutów stawianych PO jest ‘bycie tylko anty-pisem’ ‘nijakość’ i brak własnych pomysłów to trzeba przyznać, że co jak co ale Zieloni mają tych postulatów naprawdę sporo. Po trzecie patrząc na odpływ wyborców lewicowych w stronę Trzaskowskiego i Hołowni można się spodziewać, że Zieloni mają tu trochę elektoratu do zagospodarowania. W związku z tym spodziewam się, że mogą rosnąć w siłę jako progresywne skrzydło KO. Oczywiście nadal będą jedynie frakcją w tej koalicji i nie zagrożą raczej dominacji PO ale wraz ze wzrostem jej popularności lub ewentualnym przejęciem władzy od PiS mogą moim zdaniem stać się w parlamencie siła porównywalną z Konfederacją (11 posłów) czy nawet PSL (20 posłów)
Jak zawsze dziękuję wytrwałym za lekturę moich wypocin i zgodnie z życzeniami podrzucam do poprzednich wpisów w cyklu:

2020.09.19 03:47 AlternativeNarwhal0 Coming to Poland in just over 2 weeks, some questions

Banned from polska so that leaves me with no choice but to ask here :D I am a citizen, however I left as a kid. How long does it take to get Dowod Osobisty in these trying times? Will I be able to get internet, cell and bank account open without it? I know my PESEL but my polish passport is expired so it will probably get confiscated at the border. I have 3 pieces of photo ID issued by Canadian govt and polish birth certificate both pełny and skrócony. Odpowiedzi po polsku sa okej.

2020.08.23 13:16 PeachOrPear Philo do the math and expand internationally !

Currently, only Netflix and Fubo had the balls to do this. And don't tell me this is licensing issue - it's a common excuse for managment to do nothing which is particulary wrong in case of Philo that gets major of its investment from media corporations that also own the content.
Proof that licensing issues is not true. I'm in Poland so let's take a look about channels line-up on my cable operator (INEA) list:
A&E group: History, H2 (for some reason decision on liquidation of H2 never get from the HQ to Europe, maybe they dont read emails from the boss), Lifetime, TLC. (No separate A&E channel because I don't know why)
Discovery: Discovery, Science Channel, Discovery Historia, Discovery Life, Discovery Investigation (ID), Travel Channel, HGTV, Food Network, Animal Planet, + as a bonus Discovery is 100% owner of TVN group so instead of MotorTrend there is TVN Turbo, TVN Fabuła and TVN 24.
BBC group: BBC World News, BBC Earth, BBC First , BBC Brit, BBC Cbeebies, BBC Lifetime
Viacom/CBS: CBS Reality, CBS Europa, Paramount Channel, MTV, MTV2, VH1, VH1 Classics, MTV Live, MTV Classics, MTV Rocks, Nickelodeon, Nick JR, NickToons,
Also exists: AMC Network Polska, SundanceTV l, Comedy Central but no crap like Bet, Bet Her since there is almost no black people in Poland.
As you can see there is big common denominator here. All major content owners/producers are operating currently in Europe (FOX and Disney too). It would be easier to attract customers since internet is very cheap - I pay for 150/15 which in reality is like 80/8 ~10$ a month. Combine this together with TVN own SVOD service (which currently is a crap because of their CDN and was even offered during pandemic for 1.5$/month) and this will be better service than 99% of anything currently existing and if you make agreement with Canal+ group for their mini package (Planete+, AleKino+, Kuchnia+,Domo+,TeleToon+) which as add-on costs usually 1.5$ you could easily destroy competition as such service would be perfect companion to DVB-T service, soon to be transitioned to DVBT-2 with 2022 EU deadline. I'm just surprised that CEO cannot think globally, I'm sure same situation is in Canada as well.

2020.08.05 04:43 _Fittek_ Jak bardzo rozwinięta jest sieć szerokopasmowa w twojej okolicy ?

Szybki i stabilny internet w dzisiejszych czasach to praktycznie podstawa rozwoju człowiek. Polska wypada strasznie średnio pod tym względem , co jest dość niepokojące. Najnowsze dane jakie mogłem znaleść na ten temat są z 2013 , i raczej nie wyglądają one obiecująco. Jak oceniasz swoje łącza , czy ludzie z twoich okolic korzystają z komunikacji szerokopasmowej i czy jej jakość jest zadowalająca ?

2020.07.13 18:45 StargateRush Przepraszam, coś się popsuło i nie było mnie słychać.

Miałem zacząć słynnym rantem Stonogi na wyniki wyborów, ale cały internet chyba go zna.

Coś się popsuło i DLC do Your Politics o nazwie Polska - otrzymał glicza. Większość - czyli 50.4 lub 51 i parę graczy w tym regionie wybrało jeszcze gorszy ending niż myśleliśmy. Oznaczać to będzie między innymi dalsze restrykcje, sprawiając że broń która jest dostępna na poziomach od 25 wzwyż, w regionie USA można kupić bez problemu, tak w Polsce, by mieć jakikolwiek ekwipunek trzeba się użerać z administracją - a co gorsza - nie ważne czy używasz mikropłatności czy nie - i tak kopną cię w dupę. No i ograniczają nam dostęp do auction house - to jest kurwa dramat że nie można kupić ekwipunku a mikrotransakcje chuja dają. Tak samo wyższy level bo go nie można wbić.

Fakt - wartości rodzinne zostały zachowane ale co mi po tym, jak żeby levelować, muszę opuścić starter location, a punkty szybkiej podróży są ograniczone do lokalnego punktu startowego tego porąbanego MMORPG.

Gracze drodzy, czemu wybraliście frakcję Gildii Złodzieji!? 90% Questów jest teraz zablokowana - tak samo aktywności. Najgorsze jest to - że nie mogę kliknąć wyloguj się.

Zaraz znowu wprowadzą DLC Lockdown w wersji 2.0 I co? Jesteście gotowi na powtórkę? Ktoś się na event nie załapał?

2020.06.29 14:57 prawnylewak Zbiór odpowiedzi na typowe po-wyborcze pytania

  1. Tak, Polska jest podzielona na zachód/wschód czy też zabór pruski/zabór rosyjski. Ale ten podział ma coraz mniejsze znaczenie wobec nowego, tj. Polska dużych miast / Polska powiatowa.
  2. Tak, na Andrzeja Dudę/PiS głosują głównie ludzie gorzej wykształceni. Obecnie z dosyć oczywistych przyczyn - są biedniejsi, a tym samym bardziej przywiązani do programów socjalnych. Jednocześnie są bardziej podatni na argumenty typu "LGBT"/"gender"/"uchodźcy".
  3. Tak, na Andrzeja Dudę/PiS głosują ludzie starsi, w szczególności emeryci. Znów, obecnie z oczywistych przyczyn, które można sprowadzić do poziomu 13-emerytura + konserwatyzm obyczajowy.
  4. Tak, na Rafała Trzaskowskiego/PO głosują osadzeni w zakładach karnych. Przyczyny znów dosyć oczywiste, partia postrzegana jako liberalna, stawiająca bardziej na resocjalizacje, a nie represje w zakresie prawa karnego, zawsze będzie cieszyć się większym poparciem niż "partia szeryfów".
  5. Tak, na Andrzeja Dudę/PiS głosuje "stara" emigracja w USA i Kanadzie, właściwie wyłącznie z pobudek światopoglądowo-patriotycznych. Natomiast na Rafała Trzaskowskiego/PO głosuje "młoda" emigracja w UE i ogólnie rozrzucona po świecie.
  6. Tak, wśród najmłodszych wyborców będzie najwięcej zwolenników partii i kandydatów skrajnych, takich jak Krzysztof Bosak i Konfederacja. Dodatkowo będą to jednak głównie młodzi mężczyźni. Tak było właściwie zawsze przez ostatnie 20 lat, gdzie ten elektorat głównie opierał się na UPR (i pochodnych) oraz samym Januszu Korwinie-Mikke i niewiele do dnia dzisiejszego się zmieniło.
  7. Tak, głos profesora uniwersytetu jest równy głosowi żulika spod budki. Na taki system demokracji się umawialiśmy i nie ma co w ogóle o tym dyskutować.
  8. Tak, pierwsze cząstkowe oficjalne wyniki wyborcze wskazują na znacznie większe poparcie PiS/Andrzeja Dudy, względem pozostałych kandydatów. Wynika to z faktu, że pierwsze spływają wyniki z małych komisji, które szybko kończą pracę, a dopiero na końcu z tych dużych, miejskich.
  9. Nie, Andrzej Duda nie ma zagwarantowanego zwycięstwa w II turze, chociaż faktycznie jest oczywiście tego bliżej.
  10. Nie, zostanie w domu na II turę to nie jest uchylenie się od wyboru "mniejszego zła", bo brak głosu lub głos nieważny de facto wspierają kandydata czołowego, a więc w tym przypadku Andrzeja Dudę/PiS.
  11. Tak, na Rafała Trzaskowskiego/PO/Szymona Hołownię/Roberta Biedronia głosują ludzie zamożniejsi i przede wszystkim najlepiej wyedukowani. Głównie dlatego, że ich nie przekonują tak łatwo argumenty typu teorie spiskowe, ani też nie są uzależnieni od programów socjalnych, kierują się więc bardziej kwestiami estetycznymi-kompetencyjnymi jeżeli chodzi o kandydatów. I nie, nie oznacza to jednak automatycznie, że tacy kandydaci są automatycznie z gruntu lepsi niż pozostali.
  12. Tak, na Andrzeja Dudę/PiS głosują przebywający w szpitalach psychiatrycznych. Jest to pokłosie tego, że partie populistyczne żerują na teoriach spiskowych, które niestety dobrze przemawiają do umysłów zmagających się z różnego rodzaju chorobami czy urojeniami.
  13. Nie, wyszydzanie, zohydzanie, kpienie i wyklinanie wyborców PiS nie spowoduje w jakiś magiczny sposób, że nagle staną się wyborcami którejś z partii opozycji. Jedyna szansa to długa, długa praca u podstaw, poprawienie ogólnie bytu tzw. Polsce powiatowej i powolna edukacja społeczna, lecz nie nachalna propaganda.
  14. Tak, plakatów z Andrzejem Dudą jest znacznie więcej na polskich płotach - szczególnie na wsi - niż wszystkich innych plakatów razem wziętych. I nie, nie przekłada się to w jakiś realny sposób na dalsze poparcie polityczne i wyniki wyborcze. Niemniej tak, wyborcy Andrzeja Dudy/PiS są obecnie mimo wszystko partią głównego nurtu, której popieranie nie wyszło z mody, tak więc plakaty można mimo wszystko traktować jako swoisty barometr aktualnego poziomu poparcia.
  15. Nie, statystycznie rzecz ujmując, to nawet jeżeli zadeklarujesz to bardzo głośno, to nie "uciekniesz z tego kraju jak wygra Andrzej Duda". To nie jest ani łatwa, ani prosta decyzja. Zresztą - ostatnio wszędzie na świecie dookoła jest pełno pseudo-prawicowego syfu (dzięki Panie Internet i ruskie trolle). Lepiej więc zrób wszystko, co możesz, aby jednak do tego scenariusza nie doprowadzić. Innymi słowy - idź na wybory i zachęcaj do tego innych, nieprzekonanych.
EDIT: dodano 11-15.
Ktoś ma jeszcze jakieś?

2020.06.27 21:28 Blackoutus13 Co potrzebne do komputera stacjonarnego do gier 2020.

Witam,
od jakiegoś czasu planuję kupno nowego komputera stacjonarnego żeby móc grać w najnowsze tytuły. Jednakże, na budowie komputera ani aktualnych kartach graficznych itd. nie znam się absolutnie, jednakże przy pomocy internetu, paru filmików na YT oraz jednemu znajomemu który coś tam więcej wie zrobiłem takie coś w cenie ok 4,5 K (bo taki mam budżet około) więc proszę was mędrcy komputerowi z Polska o pomoc i sugestię.
Zwłaszcza proszę o informację o to:
- czy wszystko co jest potrzebne do sprawnego działania komputera tam jest i czego może zapomniałem
- czy jest coś co powinienem tym zestawie zmienić?
- czy dodałem coś zbędnego?
- czy muszę coś dodać by internet działał ? Karty sieciowa itd?
Jeśli też mogę o coś prosić to proszę o użycie języką bardziej dla laika.
Z góry dziękuje.

I'm gonna bet that this post will get removed for low effort or agenda pushing.
Gonna paste something:
I'm now 100% sure there is a Polish/PIS mass propaganda at play on /europe and /worldnews (astroturfing) just before the polish presidential elections.
Every single picture from Poland is mass upvoted to hide the bad news about Poland. No other picture from any other country is so upvoted as the Polish ones. But all the PIS scandals or illegal laws are buried.
The moment you post something about how PIS is a dictatorship destroying the constitution(still ongoing), how they are anti-LGBT (you remember the LGBT-free zones?), how they created a Smolensk-cult, how they are destroying the oldest forest of Europe (remember that?) or how the government is riddled with scandals upon scandals (sex hotel of head auditor Banas, "alleged" pedophilia ring of the speaker of the house, multiple money scandals of Kaczynski or the PM, 1000s of family members in public companies, bribing CEO of banks, buying spyware to control opposition and many more) it get's downvoted and flooded by people defending Poland or saying stuff like "Pis is bad BUT...."
In the first couple of hours the new posts are downvoted to 20-40% of upvotes and are suppressed from the get-go. After that upvotes are always in the 40-60% range.
Some example of serious topics being downvoted.
[5k+ upvotes but removed because "lack of context"]1 [Example 1]2 , [Example 2]3 , [Example 3]4 , [Example 4]5 , [Example 5]6 , [Example 6]7 . [Example 7]8 [Example 8]9 [Example 9]10 [Example 10]11 [Example 11]12
And all Polish picture are in the 95%+ upvotes. You can try for yourself. Just search for Poland and make top per month/year. The top posts are always pictures on how Poland is amazing and the bottom results are always how PIS is bad for Europe.
[Picture with 21k+]13 [with 30k+]14 another with [30k]15 [another 10k]16 , [another 10k]17 [another 10k]18
In the comments, most of the attacks by these trolls are typical logical fallacies. They will attack you personally, try to spin the story or will catch one false info and say that everything else is also a lie. There's also a lot of whataboutism "But what about Germany!" or "Did you see all the migrants in Sweden lol!"
I remember that PIS gave billions for propaganda:
Examples of propaganda of TVP:
And the govt and different its ministries are paying troll farms to create discord.
[Undercover reporter reveals life in a Polish troll farm]23
Or there was recently a case discovered where one of the clients of these troll farms was... Ministry of Justice (Ziobro and Piebiak). They used to slander judges who were not in their "political line"
Or [French far-right site powered from Poland]24
Or How PIS used bots to win Duda election in 215
Or [Polish internet is a battlefield of political bots]25
Why Everyone can fight against Russian bots and troll farms but no one is doing anything about PIS bots? They are winning this battlefield and it is almost impossible to fight.

Introduction
Hey, Hi, Hola, Namaste, Salut, Annyeong, welcome to Gamer Gazette from around the world! This is the “founder” Rahul BS (Yes I’m missing a Gamertag middle name because it was "Sktt1fakerrrrrr" for the most part but I promise to decide to one soon), I hope we as viewers and journalist of the gaming world embark on this new and wonderful journey I have come to call [Gamer Gazette]1 and I am excited to experience with you the fans of gaming and esports, the rich culture and heritage of gaming and esports we all love and involve ourselves in.
The philosophy behind Gamer Gazette
With platitudes aside, I would love to share with you the limited few who indeed decide to continue reading, the story of a nobody like myself starting out in this huge world known as gaming and esports not just as a fan which I have been for years now but as someone that would help bridge and connect the world together through the universal language known as gaming. Ironically I use a multitude of languages to greet you and here I am claiming to connect with every one of you through the common language known as gaming. Which is something that amazes me, You do not need to know English to know Pogchamp or PogU or any of the slangs we share in Gaming. I don’t know Korean (I will one day conquer Rosetta Stone (Shout out to FilthyFrank (oh so I am a man of culture?))) as I was saying, I don’t know Korean but I can feel the weight of the title of Bonjwa, similarly, the latest phenomenon that conquered League of Legends Twitter for a day “Polska Gurom” brought people together all the way from North America to Europe and finally to myself and many of us banded together with great fervor to get behind the swole Puki Style on the eve of his finals against LDLC in which LDLC came out on top while having a band of loyal supporters of YellowStar banding together. It was a great feeling irrespective of the outcome, one which transcended geography or demographics. This is the story of myself and my involvement in gaming and esports, I would suggest you to buckle up not for a fast ride unfortunately but a long and a slow one ironically.
My Story as an Indian Gamer
Aged 3, my mum literally threw me into the pool to learn swimming (I hyperbole a lot and no my mum probably, maybe most definitely did not do that) and that was the earliest I got a taste of sports. Soon after I would join Lawn Tennis and it would go on to become my professional career until the age of 16. I fared pretty well in my country that is India, reached top 10 multiple times in different age categories, and a solitary career-high rank of 48 in Asia in the under-14 category. As you can guess where I’m going with this one, I was always competitive or rather it was beaten into me and molded me into what I am today. During these tournaments, I would visit pc cafes to game because I didn’t own a console, and my first console was the GameBoy Color which I remember receiving it like it was yesterday. My cousin used to give me her consoles when new ones launched and I was really grateful for it. My first game was Pokemon Crystal that too in French but I didn’t care I finished the game thrice. Soon I upgraded to a ripoff of Nintendo Gameboy advance by Mitashi which was compatible with all the games and also had video and music player, it was a bargain. Fell in love with Metal Gear Solid and Drivers 3 for some reason and oh of course the mandatory Pokemon games but with a catch, I couldn’t save any of it so I had to play in one sitting. I used to game on my way to the different cities I had to go to for national-level tournaments and it would be by train which was the cheapest but it takes a minimum of a day and a half to 2 but I didn’t care I had a companion in video games and also, of course, a Hardy Boys book. Apart from that I wouldn’t have time for these things and so I didn’t get to explore the internet, But I had few friends who would play Dota and would talk about Dendi, Dendi the first esports player I was exposed to, I used to watch their interviews in 2011 and he was always famously charming and his character was just amazing. I also loved reading about Puppey and would hear about the ELO god RTZ/Arteezy. Unfortunately due to being too pre-occupied, I would only be able to see Youtube clips of their exploits and despite not knowing what the heck unfolded, the commentators always made it so hype and invigorating. Sometime before Navi won their first TI, I was also introduced to football (Soccer for the Americans, The Blasphemy! I’m kidding, only half). Same as Dota, I only ever saw a glimpse of Ronaldo and Manchester United or Gerrard and Liverpool on Youtube or when my uncle used to come over (an ardent United fan who is disgruntled at the very moment due to Liverpool being on the cusp of glory) But soon I fell in love with the game and would stay up at night, the solitary room lit in the neighborhood at 12:30 am to watch Ronaldo and Real Madrid play, So I had even lesser time for gaming and esports when I got around to being introduced to it but nonetheless I was a budding [Indian Gamer]2 . As I take a step back to review my script, I realize hardly anyone would still be reading right now but on the off chance someone made it this far, I would gank your lane 24/7 or give you the blue buff or buy you an AWP in CSGO, I am grateful and will wrap it up soon for your sake.
Years later when I make it to undergrad college in 2015 I would find all the time to watch and follow the gaming industry. Fell in love with the then SKT, say the Faker-Ryu clip a thousand times, support the esports scene of a game called Paladins (Yeah right THAT Overwatch clone (p.s it’s not)) by Hirez Studios which back in the glorious days the league and competitive scene was so amazing with incredible storylines and narratives, it further sealed my love for esports. Along with this, the god was finally defeated, Faker head in his hands, weeping after SKT lost to SSG. It was such a momentous occasion, I have it as my Gamer Gazette Twitter profile banner.
Fast forward to 2020, here I am, finally decided to start Gamer Gazette which has a pretty interesting etymology or so I would like to think, but I’ll let you decide. It was based on Hicky’s Bengal Gazette, the first English printed newspaper in Asia. As I was contemplating a name for my journalistic endeavor, something in me wanted Gazette for news because let's be real, I wouldn’t be able to rank for “Times” or “Herald” or “Chronicle” and I also needed to have the core of my industry in the name i.e Gaming/Gamer and incidentally what lead me to finalize with Gamer Gazette is when abbreviated, it is GG or Good Game or when you say it with EZ becomes more condescending but lets conveniently forget about that and focus on the positive GG. It was brilliant or so I thought in my head thinking I can add GGWP or GG at the end of a long and cumbersome article just as the one you are STILL reading, damn you are tenacious. GG (Hah, Goteem!)
As of now, Gamer Gazette is managed by only a couple of people comprising of my friends and I (let's be real, Its mostly only me but I like to give credit to whatever they bring to this project be it emotional support or producing and managing content :P) One of the few inspiration has been [Ashley Kang]3 of [Korizon.net]4 (I would like to claim the .net domain was an ode to Korizon but it was also because .com wasn’t available but lets again conveniently gloss over some facts to fit the narrative) Ashley was a major part of pushing me over to taking action than just dreaming about bridging Esports around the world to Indian Esports fans and the other way around. India has been isolated for the most part of the last decade in Esports despite 300 million gamers in the country, there have been solitary instances of interest in Indian esports in the likes of Optic Gaming and more but never a sustained presence in the Indian subcontinent until Fnatic and Sam Mathews dipped their toes into PubG mobile Esports, the latest gaming sensation in India, I have also dedicated a blog as [Gamer Gazette Blogspot]5 for minor blog articles targetting FAQs and Info for local gamers in India. Watching Ashley bridge the gap between Korea ( LCK ) with the rest of the world has been ever so inspiring for me who looks to do the same for India and the rest of the world. I hope I can realize that goal of mine through Gamer Gazette and further solidify the gaming culture in India and the world.
GG.

2020.05.12 18:30 Oxena Związek na odległość - wasze doświadczenia

Wątek na oderwanie od spraw w państwie i na świecie, a przy okazji mnie nurtujący.
Jest tutaj ktoś, kto ma doświadczenie ze związkami na odległość? Najlepiej takie Polska - inny kraj, ale i wewnętrzne, międzymiastowe mogą być.
Jak do tego doszło, że się poznaliście? Jeżeli poznaliście się przez internet, to po jakim czasie spotkaliście się na żywo? Jak sobie radziliście/radzicie z rozłąką?
Chętnie też przyjmę wszelkie porady dla osoby w takim związku.
Wiem, że istnieje LongDistance, ale chciałabym też spytać rodaków o ich własne doświadczenia :D

2020.04.26 00:18 Knightofkessler The Basics of VX in 2020

I've decided to compile and expand my earlier comments into a standalone post describing our field. I hope you find this useful.
BASIC INFO
What is VX?
VX is the study of VX modules.
What are VX modules?
VX modules alter and manipulate particle wavefunctions using a surprisingly inexpensive and hobbyist-accessible process. VX originally stood for Virtual eXtension because the first modules were used to "extend" the field potentials of virtual particles in vacuum, but the technology has so many other uses now that we typically just write the acronym. VX modules have enormous versatility with applications as wide-reaching as computer graphics to artificial gravity generation to multiversal dynamics.
How do VX modules work?
To massively oversimplify, VX modules create minute perturbations, also known as deltas, in the substructure of M-theoretic hypermanifolds via pulsed reciprocal-supergravity resonance techniques. These perturbations qualitatively alter the behavior of the ϡ-24 group operator, which--in the presence of irrational Calden alignment--leads to magnitude ε >> 1 changes in the modulation vector as predicted via the abelianality governance mapping. The Yellow Book has a decent, in-depth overview of this process.
What are VX rigs?
A VX rig is a VX module along with all the other equipment that interacts with it. There's a mind-bogglingly huge ecosystem of VX stuff, ranging from tanleevometers to rhoticular decompressors to Yiridi coprocessors. I couldn't even begin to explain all the different things that they do.
Who studies VX?
The VX community has both hobbyists and academics! It turns out that VX modules are surprisingly cheap to manufacture, so just about anyone can get their hands on one!
Where can I buy a VX module?
Good, reputable retailers include VXTech, VXceptional, and Quantech. AVOID SHODDY "BARGAIN" SELLERS LIKE LIMMIE'S AT ALL COSTS. The stuff at Limmie's, for example, is usually very cheap and prone to failure. In our field, you really don't want failure...
Note that basically no one who isn't trying to scam you sells VX equipment online. Most national postal services (with a few exceptions such as Poczta Polska) and private couriers refuse to transport VX stuff. You usually need to buy the equipment in-person.
RESOURCES
What are some good resources for learning VX?
The authoritative reference texts for VX are nicknamed after colors. One work, the Orange Book, is the undisputed guide to the field as a whole. The Yellow Book, as mentioned, explains how VX works in-depth. The Blue Book explains delta mechanics whereas the Gray Book analyzes the legal codes and regulations around VX.
Specific subfields also have texts. For example, my field, multiversal dynamics, has the Aquamarine Book.
You can't find much information about VX by Googling, by the way.
Why can't I find info about VX with Google?
It's a long story. Basically, the VX community is in a very unique regulatory position. Working with VX modules doesn't require a license; however, the US Congress has intentionally increased the obscurity of the field by preventing search engines from indexing most VX sites. VX is such an obscure but potentially dangerous field that the bureaucratic oversight is very inconsistent. When VX is regulated, it's typically bundled with a bunch of other tech-related or national security-related stuff. We either get very strict restrictions or none at all.
I'm interested in inducing same-universal macro-scale manifold folding, Hoverlitz effects, cascade failure, etc. Why will no one discuss this stuff with me?
These phenomena are very, very dangerous. In some jurisdictions, you can get prosecuted just for talking about them over the internet. The community has collectively agreed to discuss this stuff only on anonymous forums like VXTOR.
TECHNICAL ADVICE
How do I recalibrate my relotinulators once they've been disrupted by an Ergosi event?
Usually, you're just going to have to dispose of them and buy new ones. The theton matrix is damaged beyond repair during an Erogsi event of typical magnitude (r >> 1).
The dial/keypad/software interface on my Ulev kradiculatinator skips σ = 3 for some reason. How can I bypass the interface to use this parameter?
Here's the answer:
DO NOT ATTEMPT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES TO RUN A KRADICULATINATOR WITH σ = 3!!!! YOU WILL CREATE AN ASYMPTOTIC FAULT WHICH COULD NOTILULATE EVERYTHING IN THE AREA!!!!
How can I reverse the flow from my leptronic focusing unit?
Just apply an anticonversion field about an inch away from the emitter and the flow should reverse. Remember to use the right power setting.

2020.03.19 05:55 goretsky ESET Response and Information about Coronavirus/COVID-19 (security info, scams, etc.)

Hello,
With the global spread of the Coronavirus, ESET is now in the interesting position of having to protect its customers and employees not just from COVID-19, but malware and scams related to it. Many organizations which never had a work from home (WFH) policy are now, effectively, virtual organizations, with all of their workforce operating from home. This can put a lot of strain not just on networks, but people as well.
What I wanted to do here was to gather all of the blog posts, articles, statements and other information coming out of ESET about this in one place, in order to make all of the information easy to reference, and keep it updated on a best-effort basis.
If you are looking for the free 90-day free licenses fpr ESET's software, here are the offers:
Obviously, this list is not an official or even sanctioned activity, I am just trying to collect all the information in once place. If you have any questions or comments, though, please feel free to leave a comment and I will do my best to get you an answer.
Regards,
Aryeh Goretsky

2020.02.11 07:49 BeachAuthor The betrayal of VAGEENA and Ol’ Faithful, and how to use secret knowledge to prepare for war.

My public confessions of the secret ugly truth of womanhood......
Several years ago after having three children, my OBGYN gave me no option but to have a hysterectomy. Several weeks ago, when I had to pee one day, I experienced the strange sensation of wiping my own bladder with toilet paper. I had no idea what the hell was really going on, but I knew enough to know I was wiping something I wasn’t suppose to. So I sat naked on the bathroom floor with a 5X magnified makeup mirror, and screamed out loud when I saw my bladder....and then, after having my bladder tacked to my esophagus with mesh and a sling this past Tuesday....I was hit...no......I was mind slaughtered, with a profound mental list of all the “never did I ever think I would experience or do this.....”. The more I laid in bed to recover, the more I pondered this list. The longer the list grew, the funnier it became. I’m going to absolutely destroy myself for one reason only...We women need to stick together at earlier time frames in our lives together. These little young things running around just like we did, and damn it was fun, need to know the sobering truth about aging as a woman. I am at the age where I value my girlfriends more than....well, we shan’t go there shan’t we? Point is...we need to warn them.
I was SUPER excited about getting a dose of Versed for my surgery on Tuesday. I legit wasn’t even remotely embarrassed when I clapped as the anesthesiologist introduced himself and stated what he was going to give me. It’s the best sleep you’ll ever have. And thank God they gave it to me. Bc I had no idea the knitty gritty details of this procedure until after I woke up and realized that I had been hoisted up with my ass in the air, head down, and my legs pulled apart in stirrups, in a 180 position. In laymen’s terms, that’s called a split. A SPLIT. Not even a side split. Full one. I now know what the hardcore SM porn stars feel like after a hard days work. They should get paid more.
Anyway.....back to the growing list of “never did I ever think I would ever do this before I married and had children”.....
Never ever did I think I would ever....Clean urine and pubes off toilet seats every single day of my life, and google better ways to scrub urine out of the grout around the toilet. It’s a huge open gaping beckoning hole right there in front of you. Why can’t they hit it? I even walked outside one day, in a fit of fury, in the privacy of my own back yard, and LITERALLY AND PHYSICALLY, “hooked it”, solely in a frustrated effort to privately prove to myself that I could pee standing up and hit a target right in front of me. I did. I hit it. Nailed it. Flawlessly. On the first try. Didn’t need no red or purple Skittles (cause the orange, yellow and green ones don’t work), no Cheerios, no Playboy magazines or an open window of Pornhub on the cell phone...not even a pat on ye ‘ol back. Somebody out there please make me a merit badge with gold rick rack on it.
Never did I ever think I would get to a point in my life where I had to accept the line I CLEARLY did not cross into a weird disgusting comfort zone where farts and sharts (yeah I said it, sharts) are no longer embarrassing for anyone else living in my home. There are no more excuse me’s. No more closing the doors when it’s quite obvious that our neighbors can hear it happening, no more efforts to fold a dirty pair of underwear to strategically try and hide a skid mark- nope, those truth telling brown lines stare proudly at the ceiling until I pick them up and clean them.
Never ever did I think I would get to the point where I would use SUPER EXTRA STRENGTH HULK tampons for the whole period....to be fair, it doesn’t happen to all women, but in my case......my periods became increasingly heavier to point that I questioned if I had passed a mouse in the toilet one morning. And then suddenly, as if a switch turned off, I was back in the game. No lead up, no trail off. Just BOOM YOU MIGHT HEMORRHAGE THIS TIME SO KEEP DILIGENT WATCH. It’s extremely disconcerting when you go from being able to use those tiny purple ones in the 3 size box, to owning and perfecting the ability to upkeep your smile and outward confidence as you experience the feeling of the largest tampon ever created in the the history of mankind seemlessly and effortlessly shoot out of you.
Oh- and never did I ever know that one day I would be aware that my labia would grow largelonger and change colors in unison with each passing year either. But guess what girls? Y’all out there taking crotch selfies....go with ya bad self- I’m not judging!! Hell, take them now, because when you get old, it all turns darker, flaps and claps, winds and knots itself uncomfortably around your g string (you’ll Ditch those too)....I do still layout naked at my pool bc my back yard is in the woods....but....all I’m saying is....if a strong gale of wind were to come through at the right time.....I could have a chance at flying. And no one ever told me that. Why not? Why in the hell not?
And while we are on the topic of naked selfies...go ahead and get some of your butthole and boobs too. Don’t use filters. I’ll be dead and gone, but one day you can visit my grave and leave a rock or a penny.....bc one day you’ll want to thank me. Why?
Never did I ever know ANYTHING. About post-pregnancy. I have given birth once naturally, and twice by c-section. During the last two births, I was on a very high risk list. For both pregnancies I was given a cerclage. A WHAT you ask? Oh dear sweet budding princess with the mid drift tank and high waisted jeans (that btw I BOSSED back in the 80’s....for real....SLASH, was on my wall...and he was my “go to guy...that makes me super tough and cool enough to write this, regardless if you have to google who he is), a cerclage is where they stick a huge needle, while you’re pregnant, directly into your spine to numb your body, but you’re awake the entire time....you watch and hear yourself get hoisted by the feet in the air like a hog, tied u in stirrups, and the use of a speculum to completely open up your longtime bestie VAGEENA, and then a surgeon uses a 5,600 inch needle and surgical thread to sew your cervix shut.....so you won’t go into labor. Again...to be fair.....this is rare so it probably will never happen to you. But other things will....
Like hearing yourself NASTY FART (the kind that in any other situation besides birth would make you want to take up another identity and immediately move to another state)in your doctors face, literally being able to watch his/her hair blow back from their face, and being able to smell it, but unable to stop it, curb it, or even say I’m sorry bc you’re in the middle of pushing out, or getting cut open like a deer being field dressed on a hill, a baby who is waaaaaaay bigger than that big silicone human fist you and your girlfriends laughed about in that dildo store that day.
Never in my entire life, did I ever hear about, learn, understand, or ponder the word HEMORRHOIDS. No one ever told me. Not one woman sat me down and tried to prepare me for them... for the intense life altering pain and suffering.....for what they look like.....it’s a for real nightmare worse than any horror movie. In fact, I may even be so bold as to say that I’d be willing to bet ALL the women who don’t get scared AT ALL during scary horror movies, are dealing with hemorrhoids. I’m also, because I’m feeling particularly saucy tonight, gonna throw another big girl word at you that flies out of freaking NOWHERE. Sound it out with me E-P-I-S-I-O-T-O-M-Y......great job!....that’s when the doctor takes a scalpel during labor, and cuts you, from vagina to butthole (sometimes....sometimes it’s just a small cut) if they think the baby is going to RIP your taint open in a jagged fashion. Either way, the healed results can sometimes, dare I say, vary? Back to the hemorrhoids. Never did I ever think, in my wildest dreams, after I gave birth to my beautiful baby, that my trusty butthole, Ol’ Faithful, would look like that hippie overpriced organic purple cauliflower that no one ever buys in the supermarket. And you know what? My solid faith in you as a young inexperienced precious young lady assures me that you’ve finally gotten to the point in this post where your are rolling your eyes and laughing and saying, this old lady is crazy and spinning a damn tale......dear sweet youthful female fox...I implore you to keep reading bc I’m not finished and I’m not exaggerating. There’s more. And the reason I’m telling you is bc YOU shop where the purple cauliflower pops up, but you’ve never bought it....bc eewwwww gross. You buy into all of what is cool, just like I did....
Moving along.
Never did I ever think I would one day be literally unable to bend forward enough to see my own butthole or vagina. Never ever did I think I would ever reach down with an anxiety filled heart into the hell pits of my own soul to summon the ability and sheer will JUST to be able to ignore the pain long enough to carefully and blindly probe my own butthole like I was Stevie Wonder reading Braille. And then, to make matters worse, the anesthesia from surgery, coupled with pain meds always create an incredible and noteworthy parting gift that settles in your lower colon, and it’s the size and density of a softball. And you cannot pass it. Depending on your age and movie knowledge, you may hear out of nowhere Gandalf whispering YOU SHALL NOT PASS. And, trust me, it won’t....until you drink the SECRET FORMULA that ALSO no one tells you about until you have to drink it. And then.......when it works, you have to invite a buddy to attend your coming out party. Choose your partner wisely my prideful sister. Because then.....
Never did I ever think I would ever lean on my best girlfriends, through blinding tears, to take pics of my butthole with their cell phones so i could actually see the state of things. And if this happens to you......when that flash lights up, and you must come to terms with the situation, and face the monstrosity of your new gatekeeper, your pride overrides everything and you finally break down and call the doctor who not only birthed your baby, but also whom you farted and pooped on during the whole process. That will pop into your mind several times throughout your life....for absolutely no reason. Anyway...huge point here....surround yourself with either good trustworthy women who will take ALL your skeletons to the grave. Women who have proven themselves time after time over decades that they are your ride or die. Women who get more angry than you do when someone angers you. BUT....and I say this with the utmost carefulness and quiet respect for the secret behind the scene strategies of all the female servants throughout history who have served the queens of successful countries....or, especially if really believe you ARE the queen.....if you don’t have that trusted girlfriend circle luxury, and you’re in a pinch, make sure it’s someone you know something really bad about. I know...I know...that’s so damn tacky. And horrid...I personally would never do that....but, every situation different, and sometimes desperate times call for desperate measures....so, because someone will have pics of your VAGEENA, whom you haven’t thought of at all until you finally see her dilapidated state in the pic, it’s smart to be wise and cautious. Vageena will be completely unrecognizable. Forgotten. Extremely hairy that defies any resemblance of growth patterns. Probably with gross evidence of cotton fuzz stuck in it from the elephant sized made in China maxi pads they give you in the hospital that will not stick to those androgynous marriage killing mesh underwear, or just plain old toilet paper dingle berries. VAGEENA will not resemble any crotch shot you’ve ever taken. There will be NO filter that can help you, unless it’s a vintage 70s throwback to Marilyn Chambers. She’ll just be sitting there, unapologetically open, covered in hair you never knew you had in you to grow, looking back at you in the mirror like a long forgotten disgusted fair weather friend who is now just a memory you really can’t afford to waste time on at the moment....BECAUSE.....
Never did I ever hear a damn thing about any of this.....but especially and specifically, I’d like to move on to something more important and worse......it’s about Lidocaine Anal Rockets.
I shit you not. LIDOCAINE ANAL ROCKET. In the WORD of Lizzo, this is not an “accessorary”. As fruitful as I am with my use of sarcasm, I did not make that name up. When the PA and attending nurse first used the term over the phone, I heard “anal rocket” and, after thoroughly and honestly analyzing it, I was probably just energized by hearing it....rocket just made me think, FINALÉ, like the light at the end of the tunnel...fireworks means freedom and I just, I guess, associated freedom with THIS is gonna fix my butthole and I will NO LONGER (I probably put up praise hands) feel like I am scooting like a dog with worms across a bed of hot ashes. Ok. I’ll give you a moment. But just so you know....that really was an understatement. It can be so much worse than that.
Never ever did I think I’d have to do this: I had to pick the anal rockets up at a specialty pharmacy 45 min away. They hand them over to you, packed for travel, frozen in a styrofoam cooler like you’re picking up some steamed shrimp packed for travel. And really, the only fun thing was, actually opening them and looking at them for the first time. I laughed. Out loud. By myself. BECAUSE. Never was I ever, throughout this entire ordeal, bequeathed with the knowledge, that these carefully crafted items of promised relief, were molded in the shape of butt plugs. They aren’t small either. These are seasoned porn star size. I’ve ALWAYS said NEVER to that door in my Narnia coat closet. I even had someone try to use Pink Floyd’s Comfortably Numb in an effort to persuade me. I quickly used a coy light reference of that meat grinder scene and nothing else had to be said. Also, I’m not judging you if you’ve partaken/to each his/her own.....but those memories quickly morphed from creepy to romantically reflective, when I found myself stuck in a painful situation where I was no longer afforded to right to decline or refuse to use it FOR ANYTHING. Pure lidocaine. Mixed, Poured and frozen In a butt plug mold the size of an orange street cone.....not really, but you know when you see a really big hill when you’re young and innocent, and then when you’re old and wise you see the same hill one day and you can step over it with ease? Yes.....I had to through this twice. And I’d like to add the most critically important statement right now.......I’d do it again and again. Let this post give you the strength and knowledge to be able to enjoy AND understand your womanhood and the joys of bringing life into this world. Our miraculous abilities and super human strength and resilience all come with great cost, that by all ethical and justifiable rights, should come with a full fledged in depth class that should end with at least a masters degree. Just my humble opinion.
Never have I ever, did I EVER think, I would go 8 weeks without feeling my entire ass. The whole ass. Messes you up. There were days were I would internally BEG and YEARN to feel PHANTOM ASS, like unfortunate victims who suffer from the loss/amputation of limbs and sometimes actually sometimes physically/psychologically feel what they have had removed. (I’m using this example in a very compassionate way, this is the ONLY way to describe this). Then I would feel guilty and count my blessings, basically and only bc I still at that time still really had an ass. (I eventually lost my ass, and unwillingly joined the global club of white women who have long ass but don’t know it, because no one has ever told them, and they insist on wearing a thong bathing suit on the beach....or the ones who do actually know it and sit their asses down in a crab chair only to get the WORST tan lines and hangovers......to be honest I’m friends with both parties, love them both.. but a white woman long ass is what it is. ANYHOO, while using the rockets, as I begin to accept my new body and life (it’s the gross bloated cocoon stage of what will become a dragonfly) I had to repeatedly check the clock, on a strict poop schedule, to see if it was time for me to sit and stare at my bathtub from my toilet until something happened. Sometimes it did. Sometimes it didn’t. But I’ll tell you one damn thing. I flat REFUSED to wash my panties when something sinister took place. Not one woman in my life ever told me these things might happen. Nevertheless, make it be publicly known, Never did I ever join the skid mark club. Nope. When that ship sailed, it was immediate pantie retirement, sealed in a plastic bag, double bagged, and buried deep outside in the trash can. I will though, out of the goodness in my heart, and the achingly desperate desire to arm young women with the power of knowledge, will NOW gift you a priceless super secret golden nugget of truth that not one single person in your entire life will ever give you.....it’s like the Holy Grail of self preservation, the celestial key to keeping and protecting your sanity (commit this to memory.....are you ready to receive?): Hemorrhoids have two sides. 2. Not one. I’m sparing you from truly believing you are pooping in your pants without feeling it. I’m saving you from the woeful shame of finding that in your panties knowing damn well you wiped the hell out of yourself. Ladies, if you still aren’t catching what I’m throwing, then I’ll sum it up. Wiping from front to back ain’t gonna cut it anymore. You gotta go the other way too....because Satan is behind thee, AND in front of thee. IF my husband knew what I spent on panties before I finally found the dark side of the moon....wait....what am I doing??? I’m old and wise now!!! I should have bossed up with my worth! I should have told him the truth and taken advantage of the opportunity to make him feel like he was “part of the solution”, so I could wear more expensive panties. See? He would have bought me expensive ones that were actually comfortable and made me feel prettier and sexier than I did.......instead of the Dollar Gentral 10 Pair In A Bag Come All The Way Up To The Arpits Barney Fife Lita Ford High Thigh Cut Make You Look Like You Have 3 Vaginas And Patterned/Fit For A Solid Zero Understandable Length Of Ass Crack panties I was throwing away. Are you beginning to catch what I’m throwing? Newly engaged married women need to know the power they possess!! It’s critical and crucial. Hear me. You may not stumble along my exact path......but you will stumble on something with no guidance.
Never did I ever even contemplate preparation for this one.....bc never did I ever even know what buttholes became after hemorrhoids, what they looked like “after the storm has settled” and everything slowly retreats with the ebb and flow of your hormones and sphincter, and time. Truth is, they all look and turn out different. Some are just gone, while some are not. The really MESSED UP THING NOBODY tells you, is that most women who get to experience the anticipation and relief/joy of the TOTAL disappearance of hemorrhoids over time, and then they get to shamelessly rejoice in the celebratory ritual of using their magnified mirror and husbands barbershop clippers to finally RE-MEET AND GREET Vageena....they are never prepared for the future. Part 2. The sequel. None of us really are prepared, except those of us whose hemorrodic friends never leave. But for the ones who enjoyed a renewed confidence ....I want to take my pointer finger right here and now and use it to dramatically press very hard on one of the off note black keys on a piano, and slowly move my head to make intense smoldering eye contact with you. Hear me now. Loud and clear. They’re not gone. It might be the morning after a wine and CHEESE party, it maybe the morning after a long road trip where you sat in the passenger seat for 8 hours, it might be the morning after you had passionate sex with someone who just a few hours ago saw EEEEERTHANG and is now wanting to see it up close again in the daylight...but you will be awakened with that familiar pain, and go silent for a minute to get your bearings. Your face will look like a Tarsier. Go ahead, google the image of a Tarsier. You will yet again try to channel the abilities of someone who is blind, and try to read your butthole like Braille....but you will fail, bc the fear and trauma will numb you at this point. You will psychologically feel that lidocaine butt plug...You will now have PTSD, and it will go one or two ways. You will either frantically look at it in the 5X magnified mirror and be attacked by the deceiving enlarged reflection showing you have a Polska sausage hanging down from your entire ass, or you will calmly use the other side of the mirror and become immediately aware that if you HAD TO PHONE A FRIEND, all you could say is that your butthole has grown its own clitoris, complete with what looks like maybe a pulled back hood. It’s a skin tag hemorrhoid that has hidden inside the picked skin folds....until now. And it hurts like hell. And then.....you’re going to start googling. No you don’t have ass cancer. No, genital warts don’t pop up overnight. No, Preparation H or essentials oils or Witch Hazel will not make that thing go away quickly. So you’ll google some more and quickly stumble on home remedy removals. You will then nervously stare at the dental floss in your bathroom. You will also look at the needle and thread in your craft section, and try to decide between wax or cotton......and then? After reading the horrors of having them surgically removed.......you will break down in a fit of embarrassing but angered frame of mind, and speed dial/call that girlfriend who still has those pics of your cauliflower on her iCloud...but this time, you have no shame and neither does she. And then any resemblance or pride and privacy in your most personal being will evaporate when you fall through that tunnel like Super Mario into the underground world in order to save your princess.
Never did I ever think about having a stomach virus after giving birth, for the first 3 days upon arrival at home. All I’m gonna say about this is.....whether you find yourself ill or not....DO NOT TRUST THAT PAD when you fart. Don’t believe me? Fine. You’ll see for yourself, but I’ve given you fair warning. You know that old saying “when the shit hits the.....”.....I’m taking the liberty to use it in a different way. Because it’s the only way to describe it with dignity and a slight sense of humor what will happen, and what you alone will have to clean up while your baby is hungry and crying at 3am.
Never did I ever think I would ever be able to smuggle a midget, or a brick of black tar heroin across the border....simply by using my c-section scar. It may not be politically correct to say this, but I’m pretty confident by now you probably understand I don’t give a crap. I really do call it my midget smuggler. No matter how much weight I lose, I’m traumatized by the fact that the only way I can lose this flap of skin that looks like an overbite above VAGEENA, is either join the ranks of woman who try to jump over cars and stacks of pallets in order to land in front of a dump truck tire so they can pick it up an run and yell like a Viking......or sign up for a tummy tuck. Nothing wrong with either one. Just not for me. That comes with a price though...NO MO cheap ass bathing suits from Walmart or Target.....oh no baby, you in the big league now. What? What was that you just said in your head? That you’ll always be skinny and that will never happen to you? Girl I said the same thing, for years!!! In my worse moments, when I’m feeling particularly sorry for myself, I admit I’ve drank a bottle of wine and worn my black spanx to bed, just so I can reap the fleeting but powerful benefits of lying to myself as I lay on my side and run my hand across my flat belly....it helps with the confident dreams. And I awake as thankful and peaceful and renewed as I imagine I would be if I woke up to a clean house.
Never did I ever think I would ever be able to say, that after 5,673 years of unbelievably wonderful memories of breast feeding, that I could probably make a crane with my titty from the instructions in an Origami book my son received for Christmas this year. Or the bound paper airplane tutorial on his floor in his bedroom, where all things exist. And, LOL, I’m feeling a tingle of naughtiness slip up here all the sudden so I’m going to ride it like a magic carpet......big facts.....it happens to women who don’t breast feed too!! Why did I stoop low just then? To be quite frank, I’m bitter about losing my boobs. I mean, I lost my ass too....but the boobs hit me hard. I’m tired of seeing those TABOO episodes and the weird crap on the internet where people are willingly dangling, suspended and hanging from hooks through their nipples, because it automatically spurs some weird terrible competitive mood in me.....I’m all like, ooooh okay....lemme put down this glass of wine bc I cannot outdo you in a heartbe........and then at some point I remind myself that I need to sit my ass down. And I do. But......I never ever thought in a million years that after a lifetime of youthful stand up D cups, I would be flipping through the B CUP section while my kindergartener who has recently learned how to read screams across the store, “Mommaaaaaaaaa! Do you like THONG? (Not plural. It just read thong).
I promise. I’m winding down. Life is fun. It’s Sad. It’s exciting it’s crazy. But that doesn’t mean we have to be unprepared for it. Now....I know, I’ve said a lot of things right now. I’m saving the worst for last. I ain’t even gonna lie. This is the pits that NO ONE prepares you for.
Never ever did I ever think, in my whole entire lifetime, that I would one day, in my 40s, be able to grow a full BLACK GOATEE AND ADJOING MUSTACHE. I have light brown very thin hair. Ok. Yeah. I’ve had a cpl I had to pluck over the years....Martha, Gertrude, Blanche........but they were lazy and inconsistent with their growth rate/patterns, and I could usually feel them before I could see them. Something bad happens to some women sometimes. It happened to me. It may not happen to you. I am the bearded lady you would pay to see. I’m the definition of the completely UNAWARE AUNTIE nobody cares enough about to demand she pluck that crap before she visits and tries to kiss all the children who are consciously making the private decision between kissing her and hiding in the neighbors dog house where they KNOW FOR SURE the dog will maul them. Anything to escape those whiskers. I am the Amish woman you confidently haggled with over the price of a bucket of strawberries....you couldn’t understand a word she said, but your ass paid her what she asked for as soon as you watched her slowly and methodically stroke/pull her beard from the roots to the end like every actor who has EVER played the character of Abraham Lincoln. And. You promptly turned your ass around and climbed back on that tour buggy when she didn’t hand you any change. I am the woman who went to an Asian owned nail salon to get a chin wax, only to be told by the owner after three completely unsuccessful wax strips, and she spoke in a VERY STRONG Vietnamese accent, “Aaaaahhhhh! Yo chin hair roooot took strong! I pluck!” I remember batting her away as she came in strong with those tweezers. I am the woman who got juuuuuust** a little too comfortable with shaving with a 5 blade razor in the steamy shower......so much that one day I shattered something deep within my husband when he opened the shower door to ask me where truck keys were. I was completely immersed in my upstroke ZEN, shaving against the growth bc I had important stuff to do that day and I could not have stubble. I could only open my right eye bc of the soap and lather all over my face.... but I saw enough. It was too much for him. He’s been through A LOT with me....bad periods, surgery, peeing myself, anxiety/panic attacks, stomach virus.......but this broke something in him. The only thing he could manage to say right before he slowly closed the door was, “How long have you been doing this?” His tone and demeanor would have been the same if he had walked in and caught me cheating on him red handed. Wouldn’t have been any difference. Then. for some unknown sadistic must be rooted in a sulphuric rock in the worst part of hell....it got worse. I was asked to “grow it out some” before I went in to the doctors for a complete hormone panel. Now mind you, I shave twice a day in order to keep it in the closet. I locked myself inside my home and grew it out for two solid days. When I tell you that I didn’t even NEED a damn SnapChat filter to make me look like was in FULL TRANSITION to be a male, I need you to believe me- not bc I’m telling this is absolutely going to happen to you-but bc I need the pity. I sat in my truck, turned it on as I sighed at my reflection, and began the 45 min journey to my doctors office. I was listening to Welcome to the Jungle by Guns and Roses and going 55 in a 50 zone. And out of nowhere, I saw blue lights behind me. Not even trying to be funny and kid right now......the very young patrolman stood up from his vehicle.....methodically HOISTED his pants up, way up, just like in a movie, more than they should be. Like honestly, I forgot I was legit being pulled over and allowed my imagination to run wild as he slowly approached my window with a very stern face. I asked him if I had a tail light out or something wrong with my vehicle and he replied with a know it all very assured voice, “Mam? Where are you going in such a hurry this morning?” I said, “uhmmmm, well, I’m going to a dr appointment but I checked my speed. 55 is not speeding!” He leaned closer to my window to get a really good look in (btw I love and support law enforcement but this was too theatrical to keep to myself) so I rolled the damn thing all the way down, stuck my chin out at him and said, “I’m going to get my hormones checked. I have more chin hair than you do!” I think the morning dew and sunlight made it glisten; saw the look on his face. It was the same as my husband’s had been when he caught me using his Barbasol and BIC 5 Fkexin’ it up in the steamy shower that day. It’s a comical but extremely potent mixture of horror....disgust...denial...loss of faith in humanity....stop drop roll run erase the board control alt delete empty history sing a Rick Astley song or Amazing Grace over and over again to make your brain forget the image. My facial hair is so bad, it got me out of a ticket. Never ever did anyone tell me HOW MANY WOMEN HAVE TO DEAL WITH ON THE DAILY, just like me. I need y’all to step UP TO THE DAMN plate. You very well may have had the honor of being trusted enough to take a butthole pic of your friend, a pic that is powerful enough to bring down a small country if used in evil ways. But that was a one time job!!! When your girl is pumping gas and you see the wind move one of her chin hairs, or you’re impatiently waiting/watching her try to blend that makeup on her neckline, and you witness a rogue secret agent pop up from underneath her chin and decide to lay down in the light......you dont just urgently tell her, you make a scene by almost breaking her rearview or makeup mirror when you move it so she can see the hair! Then you pluck it out yourself. Make a scene. Drive it home. No man forgotten. None left behind. Do whatever you have to do make a big deal about it so she will be aware and proactive.....don’t let her go down like that. And then. for the rest of your natural born life, as long as you don’t have dementia- it is YOUR SACRED HONOR AND DUTY to make sure those hairs are taken care of.
So much more I can say, like, never did I ever think I’d have to draw my eyebrows on, or wear a baseball cap after giving birth bc the hair loss was so bad around my temples that I looked like I was suffering through chemo. Never was I ever told that I would grow really long hairs around my nipples that made me feel like a witch...I probably would have been torched in Salem.
Be a good...no....GREAT...NO BULLSHIT...honest...diligent and empowering girlfriend. Tell the young, the middle, the old. Be compassionate in your advice and wisdom! Threaten to beat someone’s ass for hurting her, even when you both know you won’t! We are the bringers and nurturers of life. We must help each other more than we do. ~ Ryan Welch Anderson
