2023.03.30 15:48 gtermini Oh no, I'm in big trouble!

I've had my leased Model 3 for two weeks now. I work from home, so I thought a lease would be ideal for me, as I don't really drive that much. Every morning, I drop off the kids to school and, when I had my old ICE, I would then go home and get ready for work. However, I had not considered how fun this car is to drive. So now I keep taking detours to not get home so quickly (the school is 5 minutes from our house). I've already accumulated close to 600 miles in just two weeks!! I now realize that it's going to be a tough challenge to stay within 10k/year with this thing 😫

Today is Day 1.
I am starting a new self improvement journey, I’ve practiced this for years but always quit by the end. I spent years on Twitter but before July 2022, I didn’t use it every day. I did quit social media from March-June 2020 & September-November 2020.
I want to take more breaks from Twitter this year & limit time on Instagram. Once I get the hang of it, I will go cold Turkey in a week or two.
I felt so much better when I reconnected with nature, So I want to spend more time outside. I stayed inside too much last summer. Now I’m going to the gym 3 times a week and spending more time in nature.
I really need to focus on studies and get my GED so I can get into college. I just turned 28 and still trying to get into college and attempting to get in this year. I used to do 5 days at the gym and aiming for 4 days.
• No Twitter.
• More time outside.
• Focus on studies.
• Apply to more jobs.
• Gym 3 Times a week.

2023.03.30 15:47 crimehive How Serial Killer John Gacy Was Caught

He was described as a pillar of the neighborhood. From their windows, kind neighbors observed him clearing snow for the elderly. He took on the persona of "Pogo the clown" for the neighborhood kids, who laughed at his antics and delighted in receiving a balloon as a reward for good behavior. When this vicious killer's mask was finally taken off, society as a whole was shocked.
As a child, Gacy was hurt in many ways, just like many people who go on to become serial killers. Gacy was abused, humiliated, and bullied. He had no control. This frequently doesn't bode well for the future grownup. He buried his trauma deep within his mind, but when he was an adult, it wouldn't take long for it to manifest itself in fresh ways.
Gacy had no control. However, Gacy seemed to be doing fine for an 18-year-old. Afterward, he joined the campaign of a local Democrat as the latter's assistant precinct captain. It appeared like young Gacy was maturing into a responsible young man.
After he was promoted to manager at a KFC restaurant, he often hosted pool and drinking nights for the young men who worked for him at his home. His horrible response to these unwelcome approaches was to kidnap them first, torment them, and then kill them. He apparently did this repeatedly without arousing even the slightest bit of interest from anyone. After all, he was a respected member of the community, a parade organizer, a wealthy businessman, and a successful fundraiser. His mask remained firmly in place over his face. He was "the devil in disguise," as some afterward described him.
Once you knew that, you would have discovered that he had two clown characters: Pogo, the good-natured clown, and Patches, the occasionally malevolent clown. He would occasionally continue to wear the clown costume, and you would later spot him in a neighborhood bar passed out over a beer.
If you had been able to examine closer, you would have discovered that he had been imprisoned for assaulting a young man. This raises the query, "Why wasn't he looked into?"
Okay, let's get to the core of how he was finally apprehended.
Elizabeth Piest, who was out picking up her teenage son who worked at the neighborhood drugstore, went there on December 11th, 1978. She brought all her pals around for a party because it was her birthday. Robert had assisted her in preparing for the party by being a caring son. Robert instructed his mother to wait outside.
He claimed that he only needed to talk to a man about a potential summer employment because it would be much more profitable than his drugstore work. Elizabeth was excited about the upcoming celebration and pleased that her son was assisting in making sure everything went smoothly as she sat in the car. Nevertheless, after 20 minutes had gone, he had still not left the shop. He was never seen again.
She reported Robert missing to the police later that evening after everyone had left and told them about the contractor he had claimed to be meeting. The police quickly learned that the contractor was John Wayne Gacy.
When police investigated this man further, they discovered that he frequently visited the pediatric department of the nearby hospital. He hopped around performing tricks while portraying Pogo the clown to very ill children.
Police have to look into it. Just too many things about Gacy seemed off. The police were authorized to search his home. Numerous sex-related literature and movies, a starter gun, a nylon rope, sedative medicines, police badges, and if that wasn't suspect enough, numerous IDs and undergarments that didn't belong to Gacy were also discovered.
In his bedroom was a large clown painting. Unbeknownst to the police, there was a radio and TV alarm clock nearby that had formerly belonged to one of his victims. Police discovered a drugstore receipt that had once been in Robert Piest's pocket in a trashcan after performing a deeper investigation.
They didn’t know this just yet.
After that, they kept an eye on his home and followed him everywhere he went. At first, Gacy appeared to be enjoying himself as he approached the police car outside of his home and informed the officers of his intended next move. He claimed that as time went on, the cops harassed him without cause and never stopped trying to establish his importance.
Detectives and Gacy once had lunch together. They questioned him about the clown act. Gacy claimed to adore his role as Pogo. "Being a clown, you can get away with murder," he warned them. A former employee of Gacy's was questioned by police after he admitted that Gacy had once requested him to spread lime in a crawl area under his house. They then began the process of obtaining a second search warrant.
Gacy eventually went outside to the surveillance car in an angry rant. He invited the police to come inside for a cup of coffee and a look around, telling them there was nothing suspicious. As one of the police officers flushed the toilet inside the residence, he became aware of something. It wasn't a solid object, but rather a stench—the smell of death, which every detective is familiar with. They desperately needed that second warrant.
Soon after, Gacy showed up at his attorney's office looking frazzled and intoxicated. He informed his attorneys that he had something to say. When they enquired as to what, he brought out a newspaper and pointed to the story about missing youngster Robert Piest, saying, "This boy is dead. He's dead. He's in a river.
Police obtained a second order to search his house on December 21. They discovered a sort of trapdoor as they continued to search. One of the detectives entered the crawl space that followed and began moving through the tunnel at a crawling pace. The smell of decay immediately assaulted his nostrils.
Police initially discovered three bodies, each in varying states of decomposition. They also discovered fragments of bodies. They may have been viewing one of the deadliest serial killers in American history. It was discovered that Gacy had been murdering even when he was sharing a home with his second wife.
He usually took his time. Initially, by tying a rope around their necks and informing them that it was also a game. By twisting a stick, he would progressively bind it so tightly that they could not breathe. While they were in this state of extreme anguish, he tortured some of his victims. Gacy would always blame dead rats for his wife's frequent complaints about the foul odor.
He told her to mind her own business when she complained too much. She inquired about the clothes and wallets she discovered, which appeared to be from young men. Gacy warned her not to pry into his personal business.
That’s when she left.
Gacy would pick up any kind of hitchhiker, bring them back to his residence, and show them that photo of himself with the First Lady, according to interviews with survivors conducted by the police.
Usually, this was enough to give the guys a sense of security. The fact that they flatly refused to participate in his handcuff game was the only thing keeping them alive. They didn't tell the police because, sadly, the majority of them viewed law enforcement as their enemy. They’d die if they did participate in the game.
Gacy was committing most of the murders when he was best known for portraying Pogo, so he may have killed and then entertained a group of sick youngsters or the kids of his political allies.
Gacy's presence should have triggered alarms at the local police stations far sooner. John Butkovich, who had worked for Gacy for 18 years prior to 1975, had a disagreement with him about unpaid wages. After that, Butkovich disappeared.
Law enforcement officials spoke with Gacy, but no charges were filed. Keep in mind that he has a very questionable past of hurting young guys. Over a hundred times, the boy's parents contacted the police, demanding that they look into Gacy's actions.
They didn’t.
He could have gotten away with so many killings. Perhaps it was his high social status and political ties that kept the cops from noticing him. That, and the fact, he was “Man of the Year.” There was also "linkage blindness," in which individual law enforcement agencies failed to or were unable to make connections between his various offenses.
For a total of 33 killings, Gacy was found guilty. He received a lethal injection on May 10, 1994.

2023.03.30 15:47 frenchdonkeyze Looking for expandable, waterproof, bag like Sandqvist Bernt.

Hi all,
I used to have a Sandqvist Bernt which I loved.
I really like: - Easy access to laptop - cinch strap meant huge expandable capacity very useful when grocery shopping - Clean aesthetic and simple functional design. No added crap. - External access to water bottle - External access to zip pocket
Unfortunately one of the zippers failed after 3 years of use. Moreover, the backpack was not very waterproof, it protected things well but absorbed quite a bit of water.
At Christmas I was gifted an Arc'teryx Granville 20. This backpack is sucks. The external zipper is covered by the buckle when closed. The buckle has to be very tight to work. The flap is always in your way. And it's small. I liked being able to go from 20L to 25L previously and grocery shopping with this is impossible.
So I'm looking for a new bag. I would really love a waterproof version of my old bag basically.
I've been recommended the Everyday Pack by Peak Design but it seems like a lot of superfluous features and I'm not in love with the aesthetic. Keeping it in mind though.
Any recommendations?

2023.03.30 15:47 StepwiseUndrape574 Rapper 50 Cent Teases Possible Role In Upcoming Grand Theft Auto 6 Game

Just in case you aren't aware dear reader, Grand Theft Auto is kind of a cultural phenomenon. The fifth game, particularly its internet component (known simply as "GTA Online"), is by some measures the most successful video game of all time. Naturally, anticipation for GTA 6 is running high, and any tiny tidbit of information is tantalizing to the fans who have been waiting since 2013 for an taste of the new game.
50cent gta6 vice city tweet
Well, the latest teaser comes from a somewhat-unlikely but perhaps unsurprising source: Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson. The longtime rapper hasn't published that much music recently, but that's probably because he's been focused on building his media empire, instead: for more than a decade he's been lending his name, funds, and creative talent to a multitude of films and TV shows. Among those was the show "Power" which ran from 2014 to 2020, and was well-regarded by fans.
Apparently, what "Fifty" is working on now is "even bigger than Power," at least according to a recent tweet by him. What's that have to do with Grand Theft Auto? Along with the message, he tweeted the Vice City logo. Vice City is all-but-confirmed to be the locale of the next Grand Theft Auto game, which means that Jackson is likely going to play a role of some kind—possibly a major role—in Grand Theft Auto 6.
vice city logo image The Vice City logo image tweeted by 50 Cent.
If so, then Jackson will join the grand tradition of celebrity voice actors in "GTA" games. It's not hard to imagine a role for the 47-year-old performer within the world of Grand Theft Auto. His pseudonym was inspired by an infamous criminal from the 1980s, and many of his raps are about his experiences on the streets.
Grand Theft Auto 6 has no release date; Rockstar has barely even confirmed that the game exists. A major leak last year revealed surprisingly little aside from confirmation that the game will have multiple protagonists including a Latin woman named Lucia. Recent leaks include that the game will apparently feature bleeding-edge tech including "ahead of its time" water simulation—a perfect fit given the game's tropical Vice City setting.

2023.03.30 15:46 SolhWellnessOfficial World Bipolar Disorder Day: Fighting the Stigma and Coping with it Solh Wellness

Every year on March 30th, World Bipolar Disorder Day is observed to raise awareness and reduce the stigma associated with bipolar disorder. The day also aims to promote education and understanding of this complex mental health condition that affects millions of people around the world. This day recalls the birthday of renowned artist Vincent Van Gogh, who suffered from the same disorder.
Common Bipolar Disorder Stigmas
People with bipolar disorder are frequently stigmatised as being unable to function in society, aggressive, and violent. Effective treatment, on the other hand, can enable people with bipolar disorder to live fulfilling lives, maintain relationships, and work. While manic episodes can cause agitation and impulsive behaviour, people with bipolar disorder are more likely than others to cause harm to themselves. Unfortunately, people with bipolar disorder are frequently subjected to teasing, bullying, and unfair treatment, which can limit their social opportunities.
Why is there a stigma attached to Bipolar Disorder?
The stigma associated with mental illness is frequently caused by a lack of understanding and awareness. Exaggeration or shocking bipolar disorder, for example, contribute to negative stereotypes and can make people with mental health conditions feel marginalised and ignored.
  1. Mental illness is frequently misunderstood, and this misunderstanding can lead to fear and discrimination against those suffering from mental illnesses.
  2. Stereotypes and misinformation about mental illness are widespread in society and are reinforced by media, social norms, and cultural beliefs.
  3. People with mental illnesses are frequently stigmatised and discriminated against, leading to a fear of being judged, ostracised, or mistreated. This fear can cause people to hide their mental health issues.
How to Reduce the Stigma of Bipolar Disorder
Bipolar disorder stigma can be reduced through education, language changes, and shared experiences. While complete eradication of stigma may be impossible, specific measures can help to mitigate its impact. Here are some suggestions for reducing the stigma associated with mental health conditions:
  1. To promote understanding and empathy, educate yourself and others about mental health conditions.
  2. Share personal stories to help others understand the difficulties that people with mental illnesses face.
  3. Use person-first language to avoid labelling people solely based on their mental illness and to foster empathy and understanding.
  4. Dispel stereotypes and misinformation about mental health conditions.
  5. Encourage help-seeking behaviours by emphasising successful treatment and resources available to those suffering from mental illnesses.
Coping with the Stigma of Mental Health
There is no permanent solution to this problem. However, managing bipolar disorder requires reducing stress and taking care of oneself. Seeking therapist assistance, practising mindfulness techniques and coping skills, and calming the nervous system through breathing and yoga can all help with stress management.
Here are some coping strategies to help you deal with this mental illness:
  1. Seeking professional help from a therapist, learning mindfulness techniques, and practising coping skills are all effective ways to manage stress for people with bipolar disorder.
  2. Individuals with bipolar disorder can benefit from prioritising self-care by eating healthy, exercising, maintaining a consistent routine, and getting enough sleep.
  3. Journaling can help you track mood changes, identify triggers, and monitor medication effectiveness. Writing positive affirmations on good days and reading on bad days can also be beneficial.
  4. Support groups and groups with common interests can provide a sense of belonging and understanding, reducing feelings of isolation and improving mental health.
  5. Outside of bipolar disorder, hobbies and interests can provide a sense of purpose and fulfilment. There are numerous online resources for finding new hobbies or classes to help you develop your skills and interests.
World Bipolar Disorder Day represents the hope that people suffering from this disorder have that they are not alone in their struggle. We can make the lives of people suffering from bipolar disorder a little easier by practising helping one another and working to remove the stigma associated with it.
If you are (or know someone who is) suffering from this disorder and want to find a solution, contact Solh Wellness. We provide a safe space for people dealing with mental health issues to help them overcome life's challenges. Download the Solh Wellness App to improve your mental health and quality of life.

2023.03.30 15:46 butteredkernels Win10/11 OOBE Lockup, Ubuntu LiveUSB Lockup

Hello All,
Machine: ASUS ROG Strix G17 G713QR.330
CPU: Ryzen 9 5900HX
GeForce RTX 3070 Laptop GPU
RAM: 32GB Samsung 1600Mhz DDR4-3200
OS: Windows 10 / 11
Warranty: Expired 2/10/23 (of course...)
Peripherals: none
My wife and I have identical laptops. I recently upgraded mine to a new Intel AX210 WiFi card, and yesterday decided to do the same for hers. Her laptop was running Windows 10 and was giving her some stuttering behavior the other day. I run Windows 11 on mine and since there's been a lot of newer ASUS image/firmware updates for it I decided to upgrade her to 11 as well. I backed up all her data, swapped the WiFi card out, made sure everything was working as-is, and then wanted to give it the ol' nuke and pave to Windows 11.

Past 2 days:
Windows 10, Windows 11, and Ubuntu 22.04 LTS (live USB) all lock up randomly and I can't complete an install.

Windows 11 Install - installation completes, OOBE loads, and it will lock up randomly anywhere between connecting to WiFi network to signing into Microsoft account

Windows 10 Install - installation completes, OOBE loads, and it'll lock up between connecting to WiFi network to right after creating a local account

Ubuntu 22.04 LTS LiveUSB - locked up after about 6 minutes of idling in the "Try Ubuntu" load

I considered perhaps it was the SSD, so we overnighted a new Samsung 970 EVO from Amazon, the issue persists. I even swapped the old WiFi card back in thinking maybe it was just a problematic Intel WiFi card causing the issue.
It does not lock up in BIOS (I let it sit with something on an arrow key for 30min so it was changing menus constantly - no lockups)
It does not appear to lock up in PE environments, namely SystemRescueCD Live.
EDIT: It does not appear to be a heat issue either, i compared our laptops on startup and they seem to be behaving the same way in that regard. I have considered tearing it all the way down and reapplying thermal paste, but that's a task I'd rather not get into if I can help it.
I've also reseated the RAM, even swapped the slots they're installed in.
I ran memtest86 overnight for 8hrs, 5 passes, no issues.I managed to get Windows 10 installed w/o much fuss this morning with no wifi card in it and ran mdsched.exe and it passed
I was going to run an in-os diag with Si-Sandra or Cinebench, but it locked up almost immediately.
I've been in I.T. since 2006 and I'm running out of ideas.
Thanks for reading, hopefully someone here has some additional thoughts.

2023.03.30 15:46 righteous_kat We didn’t meet up which was probably good. But we’ve talked for hours

Thought I was going to meet up with an old flame last night but he didn’t get home until late and was exhausted. Probably for the better. Instead, we ended up texting for hours. Getting to know each other. We were FWB over 20 years ago. I hadn’t thought much about him until a few years ago when I ran into him. Anyway, dude is in therapy y’all. Like working on his shit, loves therapy. As am I.
I don’t know what is happening here. He messaged me when he woke up this morning. I’m catching feelings but not in the traditional way. I can’t really explain it. I don’t want a relationship right now. But I am just drawn to this mans energy like none other.
I want to tell him that but I don’t want to scare him away. I’m also in the middle of divorcing my husband and I don’t want him to think I’m rebounding. I’m definitely wanting to feel those feelings again but I’m not looking to settle down anymore.
Anyway, life is funny. The day I told my husband I wanted a divorce, I randomly ran into my old friend. I told him we should catch up and here we are.

2023.03.30 15:46 RedditIsForSports Dear Diary, I'm 6 months into my credit card journey and while I made some good choices, I made more bad choices (long post)

About me: 30-something CPA living on Long Island with a low-800 credit score. I'm a home owner, a 5% equity partner in a CPA firm, a 5% partner in the building the CPA firm operates in (3 other offices being rented to outside businesses) and the only financially literate person in my family and it took a while for me to truly understand personal finance. Also, while I like the cash back, I got into credit cards as a game for my math brain and also for aspirational travel. Here's my history.
About 11 years ago, I had used a single Capital One card but due a dispute with them, I closed my account and opened a Bank of America Card where I paid absolutely no attention the any rewards perks.
About 9 years ago, I got a Freedom Flex. I don't remember why.
About 4 years ago, I realized that instead of earning 1% cash back, I could earn 1.5% cash back on the Freedom Unlimited. Why not get .5% more on all my spend since I charge everything that can be charged without an additional fee? Sweet!
A little over two years ago, my firm decided to take a trip to Disneyland (thanks PPP!). Since we had to book two separate groupings for flights, I was offered the chance to get a free Jet Blue CC just to get the rewards, which I did. I only use that card when I book Jet Blue flights (not often) and I'm saving those miles for a future event when one arises.
That brings us to 6 months ago. Now a partner in a business, a building and accustomed to owning a house, I decide to try to track my spending to really see exactly my spending and savings (I'm a CPA so I had a ballpark idea but I wanted to know exactly). This brings me to thinking about my credit cards.
I decide I don't want to pay any annual fees and I want to maximize my percentage return on spend (excluding what you could redeem points for when traveling). It's a balance between wanting higher rewards but preferring points and all the while, avoiding any annual fees. If possible, not carry a million cards too.
First card is the Citi Custom Cash. I use it as a gas card because I never spend more than $500 on gas so I don't have to think about it. Custom Cash = Gas is easy to remember. Plus, my firm reimburses me for gas so it's easy to submit that statement for reimbursement each month. Good Idea
Second, I realize I spend a lot on Amazon. After all, if it's not food or clothing, I buy it on Amazon. I even buy my household cleaning products there. However, I sign up for the Synchrony version and it's like using a website from 1999. Whatever it's 5% so win, right?
No! I quality for Bank of America Preferred Rewards Platinum Honors, which would give me 5.5% on online purchases up to the limit (which I don't exceed). Amazon is a bad idea but it works out later as you'll see later
That leaves me with a hole at groceries and streaming services. I cut out cable so all my streaming (including Spotify), total $135.79/month. Not a lot but considering I cut out cable to save money, better rewards would mean even more savings from this choice. Accordingly, I sign up for Savor One. At that time, I had planned to get the Venture X eventually so if I put streaming/grocery/restaurant on the SO with the VX being my catch-all, I'm golden in that ecosystem. Good idea but doesn't work out
Last month, I get the opportunity to open my own Chase Ink Unlimited business card so I do and meet the spend in 1 month. Now I have over 100,000 UR points from that. Plus last month I used my Flex on groceries so I'm racking up Chase UR points.
Now my set up looks like this due to a new card:
So ultimately:
I'm sitting at 4/24 with all my categories covered. If a nice SUB bonus arises or a new card comes out that enhances my situation, I have the space for it. Otherwise, I'll just continue with this route until something arises.
Considering I do have Bank of American Platinum Honors, I am considering a card that I product change into a second Customized Cash Card. I am also considering a card that I can product chance into a second Citi Customized Cash Card but considering it's a $500 spend cap, it's much less likely.

Previous/First/Next: Emergency Powers
\The Soldier’s POV”*
I sat there, breathing in and out of sync, wondering if my end is near, wondering if I was right or wrong. Each tick of the old style clock on the wall, they seem to be both a second and day to me, both of which were to long. I hear only their voices now, the two men sit across from me, SAC Murray and the CIA Director, or was it CIA Director Murray? If so who is the other human? Why is my head on the table? Why am I bound again? Oh, I remember, how could I forget what I did. Or did I do that?
“We understand that you passed out Miss Praw-Naw, so we gave you a cocktail of drugs to awaken you from it” The man on the right speaks, Murray I believe? Wait, drugs? What did they give me and how much?
“What drugs? My mind is racing and I feel like I’m going t–“ Well, I just gave the floor a new hideous paintjob. Still it already looks better than the old grey one.
“We gave you a bit of pain relief, some barbiturates to prevent stress and some nervous stimulants to wake you up.” The, Director speaks? Okay, okay, I might be a bit allergic to the pain relief but what is a barbiturate? Is it toxic in anyway? “Now Miss Praw-Naw, we are going to ask a few basic questions surrounding what occurred at the planetary capital.” Planetary capital? What happened ther– oh, oh shit what do I say? How do I lie to them? Should I kill myself? No, I must if I want to not harm the rest of the operation. Ok, ok, I’ll do it now.
“May I ask why you are moving your jaw that way miss?” Oh god I though I was subtle and now Murray has noticed. I hope that the cyanide tooth fell out and they didn’t find it, lest I die a much worse death. “I understand you are curious as to why your cyanide tooth is missing, but please, relax. We all work for the Union in this room, and you were meant to be at the capital during the explosion. So why are you trying to kill myself? You must have something to hide if you have something to fear.” Oh god Murray is going to bury me, here and now with questions I’ll have no answer for.
“Murray if I may?” Murray just nodded to the, Director? I still barely have a clue who this man is and yet Special Agent in-Charge Murray, who sits just under the CID planetary Vice-Director in power, defers to this man. Who is he? “Miss Praw-Naw, please tell us why you were at the Planetary Council? And what are your intentions?” God he is softly spoken, and yet nature itself seems to bow to him.
“I was there as I was assigned by my officer, and I was also there as part of my operation. My intentions are to kill myself so please let me.” NO, I did NOT intend to say any of that. Why has my mouth and mind betrayed me? It is as if I have had my account hijacked, and I can’t recover it. Now the hijacker is impersonating me and using my reputation as toilet paper.
“And tell me about this operation, who is behind it? Who are your accomplices? What do you aim to achieve?” The Director has stood up. Wait, what is in that briefcase he is carrying? Oh no, no, no, he’s going to torture me now isn’t he? I am already locked out of my own mind, now I’ll be painfully trapped in my own body. “Ahh, maybe you want to see this.” What is he pulling out– a gun, and a file. Dear god, Is that my own file? This man knows it all then.
“The operation was to destroy the Planetary Council, as for my accomplices, dead and I honestly didn’t now who they are. All I know is that someone called the High Councillor was behind the op.” My mouth has once again betrayed me, and yet as I battle with my neurology I have made my first victory, a small one nonetheless but a victory. I cannot betray my brother to these DoNS fuckers.
“I see, but still I watch as you battle the mutiny of your mind, and as I view your desperation, I can make you an offer.” I watch as the Director picks up the gun, I think its an old style human revolver? “This is a Smith and Wesson 500, a revolver passed down through my family. As I understand, Jav-Gav culture puts emphasis on noble death and not betraying the established order, both of which you have violated.” Oh god, I have in my passion forsaken the ancient code. I have been blinded by my pride and now, it all comes back to me. What have I done? My family will dishonour me and in 50 years, I’ll be forgotten. “I have and offer for you miss Praw-Naw, you tell us everything, and I kill you here, mark your file with as having died protecting the Council and add an award for honour. Your family will no longer be denouncing you and you would be buried in a graveyard of honour. How does that sound?” That sounds wonderful, but what about the others? Now I realise why duality of loyalty is discouraged. You know what, I’ll take the offer but try withhold as much as I can.
“I’ll accept Director. I was given this operation by my old CO, he said it was something important. The operation’s overall goals was to eliminate the council, for which I was told were conspiring with enemies of the state. I was… unaware of the fact that they weren’t and had no way to prove otherwise. The team… who uh… I didn’t know other than the codenames, and I planted several explosives throughout the building while the rest of the team prepared others. We had to switch to the backup plan when the sweep found bomb 17. They were on a static timer so we had no way to detonate them early. The team proceeded to eliminate the helicopter pilots and upon the council’s arrival for evac, eliminated them as well. We had our timing wrong however and the explosion went off while we were getting our wingsuits on.” Right that should hopefully be enough to ward them off the trail, hopefully he can escape. Wait… why is he unloading his gun?
“I understand your duality of loyalties Miss-Praw Naw, but please, do not attempt to withhold anything from me. You told me only thongs that could not benefit an investigation much. So tell me who is the High Councillor? And how did you get this equipment? You certainly didn’t smuggle it through, not with how customs has been recently.” God no, no, no. Most local enforcement would take such an answer, why did mankind have be able to see through such? Now what do I do? Now what do I do? This man has so much power that the National Council doesn’t try push him around. “Answer me Miss Praw-Naw, or I will go the other extreme an publicise your treason to the extent in which your family will dishonoured until the end of time. NOW TELL ME!”
“The High Councillor, a misleading codename my only brother used to mislead the investigation, planned the operation but the equipment was supplied by a group called the.. LibMov? I was told they were covert ops that had gotten us the equipment. Other than that I don’t know much.” The Director is nodding slowly at me. Please may do it now, please. Okay now he is walking to behind me.
“Murray, I don’t want to cover you with blood, so please step out of the way.” I feel him put the gun to the back of my head, hurry the fuck up.
“The hell was that prick on the back of my… neck..” I can barely… stay… awake…
“Murray have a medic put her in statis, we may need her again later.” That… bastard… lied… to me.
That is all for this week. This one was different to write and I hope to use it’s style again in the future. Otherwise that is all for now.
