[Meta] Glad I found this sub - you guys are great!
I was born a Dallas suburb girl during the 70s cowboy trend, moved to Oklahoma... was raised by parents who listened to the BeeGees and Abba. SE Oklahoma was a wasteland for me in terms of music and general culture. I loved horses, loved boots, had no desire to go to rodeos or wear the cowboy fashion in the 70s, or in the late 80s/early 90s when it came back around. Started dating a guy who at the time would go to BillyBobs in Ft. Worth with a friend who rode bulls and would 'pull rope' for him.
One of our dates was to go to the local rodeo. I bought a pair of navy blue Justin ropers, a mint green blouse, a pair of Rocky jeans, and a belt/buckle, all on last chance clearance sale... Kinda liked it. Another year goes buy, same BF, we're going out dancing on the weekends to the 'country' clubs. Boots became my every day footwear. I wore out many a pair of Justin lace-ups.
Quit wearing them in the mid-90s, had more 'professional' jobs that didn't allow for boots and jeans. 20 years go by... and we end up buying 105 acres, building a house... and getting cattle. Then horses... then boots (Sacrificial Ariats) became a necessity, then I messed around and tried on a pair of Lucchese ostrich skin boots in Wyoming. I think I have something like 7 pairs now. Probably none that are collectible. I don't see giving them up this time when the trend begins to fade. They're more than fashion for me - though I have some that are all about fashion, for sure.
I absolutely love seeing the boots here, and being a very tactile person who enjoys bringing leather back to life, it makes me smile to imagine what that leather or exotic hide must feel like, or how it smells. You guys have been a fun sub to lurk at.
If you ever have the opportunity, I highly recommend a trip to M.L. Leddy's in Fort Worth (Stockyards District). I bought one of their saddles in N. Texas as a barn find, took it to them to be restored. Tony (If he's still there) is a stellar gentleman and we were given a tour of the shop, including the third floor saddle making area. They still use machinery from the turn of the century, they still hand tool every saddle. The variety of handcrafted boots is jaw dropping and they're huge believers in old school treatment of customers. You won't be disappointed.
Thanks for being a great sub, guys. Sorry so long. Pic below of sacrificial Ariats and... a young laying hen.

2020.11.08 15:45 prettypressonnails 2 months together and seems like he’s exiting the honeymoon stage.

He says he’s in love with me and if he wasn’t, he wouldn’t be with me anymore. We are both older- he’s mid 50’s and I’m nearly 50. We are both in good health and still attractive. The trouble is he has struggled with ED pretty much from the beginning. He’s been single for probably 10 years and hasn’t experienced a woman as sexually open and comfortable as me. I’m very sexual when in love, and he seemingly just wants to cuddle.
I feel like Peg Bundy. Helen Roper...
He has managed to release only twice, and only instigated sex the first couple of dates but even then, he couldn’t climax.
Maybe I’m in the wrong sub? BUT THIS IS BREAKING MY HEART. I’m not getting any younger, and I crave to spend my last active years embracing every day with the man I love. I’ve never done complacency anyway, but this is truly killing me.
We have talked about it. The conversation was disturbing, painful and stressful for us both but we managed to be in the same page as far as looking into naturopathic remedies for him.
I’m able to be sensitive to his feeling like he’s substandard due to it. He said he used to be the overly sexually active one back when he was younger, and he was always getting turned down. He says he feels bad for me. That hurts me too, thinking of him craving it before but now with me, he’s practically running away.
I feel like a selfish person for wanting to leave if the herbal remedies won’t help. If he was wanting to be sexual in other ways together outside of intercourse, I’d stay. But, he literally isn’t interested in still pleasing me/sharing sexual intimate energy together it would seem. I’m completely cut off and denied. Staying without any solution would hurt too much. Having to hold back long term expressing my love physically would be excruciating.

Robert Heinlein Quotes on Life, Guns, and More

https://preview.redd.it/uw0binrfnrx51.png?width=900&format=png&auto=webp&s=d2727dc0b5797ff022ed1eb82d42139b540b3d4b
Alongside Isaac Asimov and Arthur C. Clarke, Robert A. Heinlein represents the third of the “Big Three” science fiction authors. While his genre is arguably best known for far-fetched contrivances and other elements that would look right at home in a fantasy novel, Heinlein is revered for pioneering the “hard” science fiction subgenre that puts logic and scientific accuracy in the front seat.
Heinlein was born in Butler, Missouri in 1907. His family took pride in having sent a man to every American war dating right back to the original. While young Heinlein loved astronomy and literature, his aspiration had always been to join the United States Navy. Unfortunately his older brother’s enrollment at the United States Naval Academy prevented Heinlein from attending at the same time, but he was finally admitted in 1925.
Heinlein studied engineering at naval academy, and continued on to work in radio communications aboard the then state-of-the-art aircraft carrier USS Lexington. Afterward he served as a gunnery officer aboard the destroyer USS Roper, another highly technical role that would color his later fictive work.
Pulmonary tuberculosis ended Heinlein’s naval career prematurely in 1934. He proceeded to work in real estate, silver mining, and Upton Sinclair’s socialist End Poverty in California movement. Heinlein finally ran as a Democrat for the California State Assembly. Following his defeat he turned to writing as his main source of income – which proved a wise move.
Heinlein wrote “Life-Line” to enter in a contest held by Astounding Science Fiction, but wound up selling it to the magazine for far more than the grand prize payout. The novelist went on to publish several critically acclaimed best sellers including The Moon is a Harsh Mistress, Stranger in a Strange Land, Double Star, and Citizen of the Galaxy, although thanks to its 1997 film adaptation his best known work shall always be Starship Troopers. (It is interesting to note that Starship Troopers the novel contained none of the satirical treatment of fascism and war propaganda – these were the filmmakers’ additions.)
Heinlein held a broad range of political and philosophical views. Attempting to glean all of them from his writing is difficult, as his views shifted throughout the course of his lifetime and he contradicted himself on occasion. In his article “Robert Heinlein at 100,” Brian Doherty describes Heinlein’s worldview thusly:
That iconoclastic vision is at the heart of Heinlein, science fiction, libertarianism, and America. Heinlein imagined how everything about the human world, from our sexual mores to our religion to our automobiles to our government to our plans for cultural survival, might be flawed, even fatally so.
While his politics evolved from liberal to increasingly conservative over the course of his lifetime, Heinlein always considered himself a radical libertarian. His futuristic adventures often emphasized the necessity of individualism, and his themes of personal freedom and free thought have found a common audience among hippies and staunch libertarians alike.
We also have Heinlein to thank for the epithet “moonbat.”
Heinlein Quotes
“An armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one may have to back up his acts with his life.”
“Whether the authorities be invaders or merely local tyrants, the effect of such [gun control] laws is to place the individual at the mercy of the state, unable to resist.”
“I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do.”
“Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.”
“Never attempt to teach a pig to sing; it wastes your time and annoys the pig.”
“A prude is a person who thinks that his own rules of propriety are natural laws.”
“Don’t handicap your children by making their lives easy.”
“You can have peace. Or you can have freedom. Don’t ever count on having both at once.”
“There is no worse tyranny than to force a man.”
“A dying culture invariably exhibits personal rudeness. Bad manners. Lack of consideration for others in minor matters. A loss of politeness, of gentle manners, is more significant than is a riot
“Duty is a debt you owe to yourself to fulfill obligations you have assumed voluntarily. Paying that debt can entail anything from years of patient work to instant willingness to die. Difficult it may be, but the reward is self-respect.”
“Almost any sect, cult, or religion will legislate its creed into law if it acquires the political power to do so.”
“There are no dangerous weapons; there are only dangerous men.”
Stranger in a Strange Land Quotes
“Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.”
“Secrecy begets tyranny.”
“Consider the black widow spider. It’s a timid little beastie, useful and, for my taste, the prettiest of the arachnids, with its shiny, patent-leather finish and its red hourglass trademark. But the poor thing has the fatal misfortune of possessing enormously too much power for its size. So everybody kills it on sight.”
“But goodness alone is never enough. A hard, cold wisdom is required for goodness to accomplish good. Goodness without wisdom always accomplishes evil.”
“If you’ve got the truth you can demonstrate it. Talking doesn’t prove it.”
“Thinking doesn’t pay. Just makes you discontented with what you see around you.”
“I never do anything I don’t want to do. Nor does anyone, but in my case I am always aware of it.”
“My dear, I used to think I was serving humanity … and I pleasured in the thought. Then I discovered that humanity does not want to be served; on the contrary it resents any attempt to serve it. So now I do what pleases myself.”
“Most neuroses and some psychoses can be traced to the unnecessary and unhealthy habit of daily wallowing in the troubles and sins of five billion strangers.”
“Its very variety, subtlety, and utterly irrational, idiomatic complexity makes it possible to say things in English which simply cannot be said in any other language.”
“He’s an honest politician – he stays bought.”
“Faith strikes me as intellectual laziness.”
“Government! Three fourths parasitic and the other fourth stupid fumbling.”
Robert Heinlein Quotes Specialization
“A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.”
Robert Heinlein Quotes Celebrities
“The United States had become a place where entertainers and professional athletes were mistaken for people of importance. They were idolized and treated as leaders; their opinions were sought on everything and they took themselves just as seriously – after all, if an athlete is paid a million or more a year, he knows he is important … so his opinions of foreign affairs and domestic policies must be important, too, even though he proves himself to be both ignorant and subliterate every time he opens his mouth.”

2020.10.30 14:44 ILikeMultipleThings Lord of the Rings Forward and Concerning Hobbits

Lord of the Rings Forward and Concerning Hobbits
Foreword
This tale grew in the telling, until it became a history of the Great War of the Ring and included many glimpses of the yet more ancient history that preceded it. It was begun soon after The Hobbit was written and before its publication in 1937; but I did not go on with this sequel, for I wished first to complete and set in order the mythology and legends of the Elder Days, which had then been taking shape for some years. I desired to do this for my own satisfaction, and I had little hope that other people would be interested in this work, especially since it was primarily linguistic in inspiration and was begun in order to provide the necessary background of 'history' for Elvish tongues. When those whose advice and opinion I sought corrected little hope to no hope, I went back to the sequel, encouraged by requests from readers for more information concerning hobbits and their adventures. But the story was drawn irresistibly towards the older world, and became an account, as it were, of its end and passing away before its beginning and middle had been told. The process had begun in the writing of The Hobbit, in which there were already some references to the older matter: Elrond, Gondolin, the High-elves, and the orcs, as well as glimpses that had arisen unbidden of things higher or deeper or darker than its surface: Durin, Moria, Gandalf, the Necromancer, the Ring. The discovery of the significance of these glimpses and of their relation to the ancient histories revealed the Third Age and its culmination in the War of the Ring. Those who had asked for more information about hobbits eventually got it, but they had to wait a long time; for the composition of The Lord of the Rings went on at intervals during the years 1936 to 1949, a period in which I had many duties that I did not neglect, and many other interests as a learner and teacher that often absorbed me. The delay was, of course, also increased by the outbreak of war in 1939, by the end of which year the tale had not yet reached the end of Book One. In spite of the darkness of the next five years I found that the story could not now be wholly abandoned, and I plodded on, mostly by night, till I stood by Balin's tomb in Moria. There I halted for a long while. It was almost a year later when I went on and so came to Lothlórien and the Great River late in 1941. In the next year I wrote the first drafts of the matter that now stands as Book Three, and the beginnings of chapters I and III of Book Five; and there as the beacons flared in Anórien and Théoden came to Harrowdale I stopped. Foresight had failed and there was no time for thought. It was during 1944 that, leaving the loose ends and perplexities of a war which it was my task to conduct, or at least to report, I forced myself to tackle the journey of Frodo to Mordor. These chapters, eventually to become Book Four, were written and sent out as a serial to my son, Christopher, then in South Africa with the RAF. Nonetheless it took another five years before the tale was brought to its present end; in that time I changed my house, my chair, and my college, and the days though less dark were no less laborious. Then when the 'end' had at last been reached the whole story had to be revised, and indeed largely re-written backwards. And it had to be typed, and re-typed: by me; the cost of professional typing by the ten-fingered was beyond my means. The Lord of the Rings has been read by many people since it finally appeared in print; and I should like to say something here with reference to the many opinions or guesses that I have received or have read concerning the motives and meaning of the tale. The prime motive was the desire of a tale-teller to try his hand at a really long story that would hold the attention of readers, amuse them, delight them, and at times maybe excite them or deeply move them. As a guide I had only my own feelings for what is appealing or moving, and for many the guide was inevitably often at fault. Some who have read the book, or at any rate have reviewed it, have found it boring, absurd, or contemptible; and I have no cause to complain, since I have similar opinions of their works, or of the kinds of writing that they evidently prefer. But even from the points of view of many who have enjoyed my story there is much that fails to please. It is perhaps not possible in a long tale to please everybody at all points, nor to displease everybody at the same points; for I find from the letters that I have received that the passages or chapters that are to some a blemish are all by others specially approved. The most critical reader of all, myself, now finds many defects, minor and major, but being fortunately under no obligation either to review the book or to write it again, he will pass over these in silence, except one that has been noted by others: the book is too short. As for any inner meaning or 'message', it has in the intention of the author none. It is neither allegorical nor topical. As the story grew it put down roots (into the past) and threw out unexpected branches: but its main theme was settled from the outset by the inevitable choice of the Ring as the link between it and The Hobbit. The crucial chapter, "The Shadow of the Past', is one of the oldest parts of the tale. It was written long before the foreshadow of 1939 had yet become a threat of inevitable disaster, and from that point the story would have developed along essentially the same lines, if that disaster had been averted. Its sources are things long before in mind, or in some cases already written, and little or nothing in it was modified by the war that began in 1939 or its sequels. The real war does not resemble the legendary war in its process or its conclusion. If it had inspired or directed the development of the legend, then certainly the Ring would have been seized and used against Sauron; he would not have been annihilated but enslaved, and Barad-dûr would not have been destroyed but occupied. Saruman, failing to get possession of the Ring, would in the confusion and treacheries of the time have found in Mordor the missing links in his own researches into Ring-lore, and before long he would have made a Great Ring of his own with which to challenge the self-styled Ruler of Middle-earth. In that conflict both sides would have held hobbits in hatred and contempt: they would not long have survived even as slaves. Other arrangements could be devised according to the tastes or views of those who like allegory or topical reference. But I cordially dislike allegory in all its manifestations, and always have done so since I grew old and wary enough to detect its presence. I much prefer history, true or feigned, with its varied applicability to the thought and experience of readers. I think that many confuse 'applicability' with 'allegory'; but the one resides in the freedom of the reader, and the other in the purposed domination of the author. An author cannot of course remain wholly unaffected by his experience, but the ways in which a story-germ uses the soil of experience are extremely complex, and attempts to define the process are at best guesses from evidence that is inadequate and ambiguous. It is also false, though naturally attractive, when the lives of an author and critic have overlapped, to suppose that the movements of thought or the events of times common to both were necessarily the most powerful influences. One has indeed personally to come under the shadow of war to feel fully its oppression; but as the years go by it seems now often forgotten that to be caught in youth by 1914 was no less hideous an experience than to be involved in 1939 and the following years. By 1918 all but one of my close friends were dead. Or to take a less grievous matter: it has been supposed by some that 'The Scouring of the Shire' reflects the situation in England at the time when I was finishing my tale. It does not. It is an essential part of the plot, foreseen from the outset, though in the event modified by the character of Saruman as developed in the story without, need I say, any allegorical significance or contemporary political reference whatsoever. It has indeed some basis in experience, though slender (for the economic situation was entirely different), and much further back. The country in which I lived in childhood was being shabbily destroyed before I was ten, in days when motor-cars were rare objects (I had never seen one) and men were still building suburban railways. Recently I saw in a paper a picture of the last decrepitude of the once thriving corn-mill beside its pool that long ago seemed to me so important. I never liked the looks of the Young miller, but his father, the Old miller, had a black beard, and he was not named Sandyman. The Lord of the Rings is now issued in a new edition, and the opportunity has been taken of revising it. A number of errors and inconsistencies that still remained in the text have been corrected, and an attempt has been made to provide information on a few points which attentive readers have raised. I have considered all their comments and enquiries, and if some seem to have been passed over that may be because I have failed to keep my notes in order; but many enquiries could only be answered by additional appendices, or indeed by the production of an accessory volume containing much of the material that I did not include in the original edition, in particular more detailed linguistic information. In the meantime this edition offers this Foreword, an addition to the Prologue, some notes, and an index of the names of persons and places. This index is in intention complete in items but not in references, since for the present purpose it has been necessary to reduce its bulk. A complete index, making full use of the material prepared for me by Mrs. N. Smith, belongs rather to the accessory volume.
Prologue
  1. Concerning Hobbits
This book is largely concerned with Hobbits, and from its pages a reader may discover much of their character and a little of their history. Further information will also be found in the selection from the Red Book of Westmarch that has already been published, under the title of The Hobbit. That story was derived from the earlier chapters of the Red Book, composed by Bilbo himself, the first Hobbit to become famous in the world at large, and called by him There and Back Again, since they told of his journey into the East and his return: an adventure which later involved all the Hobbits in the great events of that Age that are here related. Many, however, may wish to know more about this remarkable people from the outset, while some may not possess the earlier book. For such readers a few notes on the more important points are here collected from Hobbit-lore, and the first adventure is briefly recalled. Hobbits are an unobtrusive but very ancient people, more numerous formerly than they are today; for they love peace and quiet and good tilled earth: a well-ordered and well-farmed countryside was their favourite haunt. They do not and did not understand or like machines more complicated than a forge-bellows, a water-mill, or a hand-loom, though they were skilful with tools. Even in ancient days they were, as a rule, shy of 'the Big Folk', as they call us, and now they avoid us with dismay and are becoming hard to find. They are quick of hearing and sharp-eyed, and though they are inclined to be fat and do not hurry unnecessarily, they are nonetheless nimble and deft in their movements. They possessed from the first the art of disappearing swiftly and silently, when large folk whom they do not wish to meet come blundering by; and this an they have developed until to Men it may seem magical. But Hobbits have never, in fact, studied magic of any kind, and their elusiveness is due solely to a professional skill that heredity and practice, and a close friendship with the earth, have rendered inimitable by bigger and clumsier races. For they are a little people, smaller than Dwarves: less tout and stocky, that is, even when they are not actually much shorter. Their height is variable, ranging between two and four feet of our measure. They seldom now reach three feet; but they hive dwindled, they say, and in ancient days they were taller. According to the Red Book, Bandobras Took (Bullroarer), son of Isengrim the Second, was four foot five and able to ride a horse. He was surpassed in all Hobbit records only by two famous characters of old; but that curious matter is dealt with in this book. As for the Hobbits of the Shire, with whom these tales are concerned, in the days of their peace and prosperity they were a merry folk. They dressed in bright colours, being notably fond of yellow and green; but they seldom wore shoes, since their feet had tough leathery soles and were clad in a thick curling hair, much like the hair of their heads, which was commonly brown. Thus, the only craft little practised among them was shoe-making; but they had long and skilful fingers and could make many other useful and comely things. Their faces were as a rule good-natured rather than beautiful, broad, bright-eyed, red-cheeked, with mouths apt to laughter, and to eating and drinking. And laugh they did, and eat, and drink, often and heartily, being fond of simple jests at all times, and of six meals a day (when they could get them). They were hospitable and delighted in parties, and in presents, which they gave away freely and eagerly accepted. It is plain indeed that in spite of later estrangement Hobbits are relatives of ours: far nearer to us than Elves, or even than Dwarves. Of old they spoke the languages of Men, after their own fashion, and liked and disliked much the same things as Men did. But what exactly our relationship is can no longer be discovered. The beginning of Hobbits lies far back in the Elder Days that are now lost and forgotten. Only the Elves still preserve any records of that vanished time, and their traditions are concerned almost entirely with their own history, in which Men appear seldom and Hobbits are not mentioned at all. Yet it is clear that Hobbits had, in fact, lived quietly in Middle-earth for many long years before other folk became even aware of them. And the world being after all full of strange creatures beyond count, these little people seemed of very little importance. But in the days of Bilbo, and of Frodo his heir, they suddenly became, by no wish of their own, both important and renowned, and troubled the counsels of the Wise and the Great. Those days, the Third Age of Middle-earth, are now long past, and the shape of all lands has been changed; but the regions in which Hobbits then lived were doubtless the same as those in which they still linger: the North-West of the Old World, east of the Sea. Of their original home the Hobbits in Bilbo's time preserved no knowledge. A love of learning (other than genealogical lore) was far from general among them, but there remained still a few in the older families who studied their own books, and even gathered reports of old times and distant lands from Elves, Dwarves, and Men. Their own records began only after the settlement of the Shire, and their most ancient legends hardly looked further back than their Wandering Days. It is clear, nonetheless, from these legends, and from the evidence of their peculiar words and customs, that like many other folk Hobbits had in the distant past moved westward. Their earliest tales seem to glimpse a time when they dwelt in the upper vales of Anduin, between the eaves of Greenwood the Great and the Misty Mountains. Why they later undertook the hard and perilous crossing of the mountains into Eriador is no longer certain. Their own accounts speak of the multiplying of Men in the land, and of a shadow that fell on the forest, so that it became darkened and its new name was Mirkwood. Before the crossing of the mountains the Hobbits had already become divided into three somewhat different breeds: Harfoots, Stoors, and Fallohides. The Harfoots were browner of skin, smaller, and shorter, and they were beardless and bootless; their hands and feet were neat and nimble; and they preferred highlands and hillsides. The Stoors were broader, heavier in build; their feet and hands were larger, and they preferred flat lands and riversides. The Fallohides were fairer of skin and also of hair, and they were taller and slimmer than the others; they were lovers of trees and of woodlands. The Harfoots had much to do with Dwarves in ancient times, and long lived in the foothills of the mountains. They moved westward early, and roamed over Eriador as far as Weathertop while the others were still in the Wilderland. They were the most normal and representative variety of Hobbit, and far the most numerous. They were the most inclined to settle in one place, and longest preserved their ancestral habit of living in tunnels and holes. The Stoors lingered long by the banks of the Great River Anduin, and were less shy of Men. They came west after the Harfoots and followed the course of the Loudwater southwards; and there many of them long dwelt between Tharbad and the borders of Dunland before they moved north again. The Fallohides, the least numerous, were a northerly branch. They were more friendly with Elves than the other Hobbits were, and had more skill in language and song than in handicrafts; and of old they preferred hunting to tilling. They crossed the mountains north of Rivendell and came down the River Hoarwell. In Eriador they soon mingled with the other kinds that had preceded them, but being somewhat bolder and more adventurous, they were often found as leaders or chieftains among clans of Harfoots or Stoors. Even in Bilbo's time the strong Fallohidish strain could still be noted among the greater families, such as the Tooks and the Masters of Buckland. In the westlands of Eriador, between the Misty Mountains and the Mountains of Lune, the Hobbits found both Men and Elves. Indeed, a remnant still dwelt there of the Dúnedain, the kings of Men that came over the Sea out of Westernesse; but they were dwindling fast and the lands of their North Kingdom were falling far and wide into waste. There was room and to spare for incomers, and ere long the Hobbits began to settle in ordered communities. Most of their earlier settlements had long disappeared and been forgotten in Bilbo's time; but one of the first to become important still endured, though reduced in size; this was at Bree and in the Chetwood that lay round about, some forty miles east of the Shire. It was in these early days, doubtless, that the Hobbits learned their letters and began to write after the manner of the Dúnedain, who had in their turn long before learned the art from the Elves. And in those days also they forgot whatever languages they had used before, and spoke ever after the Common Speech, the Westron as it was named, that was current through all the lands of the kings from Arnor to Gondor, and about all the coasts of the Sea from Belfalas to Lune. Yet they kept a few words of their own, as well as their own names of months and days, and a great store of personal names out of the past. About this time legend among the Hobbits first becomes history with a reckoning of years. For it was in the one thousand six hundred and first year of the Third Age that the Fallohide brothers, Marcho and Blanco, set out from Bree; and having obtained permission from the high king at Fornost, they crossed the brown river Baranduin with a great following of Hobbits. They passed over the Bridge of Stonebows, that had been built in the days of the power of the North Kingdom, and they took ail the land beyond to dwell in, between the river and the Far Downs. All that was demanded of them was that they should keep the Great Bridge in repair, and all other bridges and roads, speed the king's messengers, and acknowledge his lordship. Thus began the Shire-reckoning, for the year of the crossing of the Brandywine (as the Hobbits turned the name) became Year One of the Shire, and all later dates were reckoned from it. At once the western Hobbits fell in love with their new land, and they remained there, and soon passed once more out of the history of Men and of Elves. While there was still a king they were in name his subjects, but they were, in fact, ruled by their own chieftains and meddled not at all with events in the world outside. To the last battle at Fornost with the Witch-lord of Angmar they sent some bowmen to the aid of the king, or so they maintained, though no tales of Men record it. But in that war the North Kingdom ended; and then the Hobbits took the land for their own, and they chose from their own chiefs a Thain to hold the authority of the king that was gone. There for a thousand years they were little troubled by wars, and they prospered and multiplied after the Dark Plague (S.R. 37) until the disaster of the Long Winter and the famine that followed it. Many thousands then perished, but the Days of Dearth (1158-60) were at the time of this tale long past and the Hobbits had again become accustomed to plenty. The land was rich and kindly, and though it had long been deserted when they entered it, it had before been well tilled, and there the king had once had many farms, cornlands, vineyards, and woods. Forty leagues it stretched from the Far Downs to the Brandywine Bridge, and fifty from the northern moors to the marshes in the south. The Hobbits named it the Shire, as the region of the authority of their Thain, and a district of well-ordered business; and there in that pleasant comer of the world they plied their well-ordered business of living, and they heeded less and less the world outside where dark things moved, until they came to think that peace and plenty were the rule in Middle-earth and the right of all sensible folk. They forgot or ignored what little they had ever known of the Guardians, and of the labours of those that made possible the long peace of the Shire. They were, in fact, sheltered, but they had ceased to remember it. At no time had Hobbits of any kind been warlike, and they had never fought among themselves. In olden days they had, of course, been often obliged to fight to maintain themselves in a hard world; but in Bilbo's time that was very ancient history. The last battle, before this story opens, and indeed the only one that had ever been fought within the borders of the Shire, was beyond living memory: the Battle of Greenfields, S.R. 1147, in which Bandobras Took routed an invasion of Orcs. Even the weathers had grown milder, and the wolves that had once come ravening out of the North in bitter white winters were now only a grandfather's tale. So, though there was still some store of weapons in the Shire, these were used mostly as trophies, hanging above hearths or on walls, or gathered into the museum at Michel Delving. The Mathom-house it was called; for anything that Hobbits had no immediate use for, but were unwilling to throw away, they called a mathom. Their dwellings were apt to become rather crowded with mathoms, and many of the presents that passed from hand to hand were of that sort. Nonetheless, ease and peace had left this people still curiously tough. They were, if it came to it, difficult to daunt or to kill; and they were, perhaps, so unwearyingly fond of good things not least because they could, when put to it, do without them, and could survive rough handling by grief, foe, or weather in a way that astonished those who did not know them well and looked no further than their bellies and their well-fed faces. Though slow to quarrel, and for sport killing nothing that lived, they were doughty at bay, and at need could still handle arms. They shot well with the bow, for they were keen-eyed and sure at the mark. Not only with bows and arrows. If any Hobbit stooped for a stone, it was well to get quickly under cover, as all trespassing beasts knew very well. All Hobbits had originally lived in holes in the ground, or so they believed, and in such dwellings they still felt most at home; but in the course of time they had been obliged to adopt other forms of abode. Actually in the Shire in Bilbo's days it was, as a rule, only the richest and the poorest Hobbits that maintained the old custom. The poorest went on living in burrows of the most primitive kind, mere holes indeed, with only one window or none; while the well-to-do still constructed more luxurious versions of the simple diggings of old. But suitable sites for these large and ramifying tunnels (or smials as they called them) were not everywhere to be found; and in the flats and the low-lying districts the Hobbits, as they multiplied, began to build above ground. Indeed, even in the hilly regions and the older villages, such as Hobbiton or Tuckborough, or in the chief township of the Shire, Michel Delving on the White Downs, there were now many houses of wood, brick, or stone. These were specially favoured by millers, smiths, ropers, and cartwrights, and others of that sort; for even when they had holes to live in. Hobbits had long been accustomed to build sheds and workshops. The habit of building farmhouses and barns was said to have begun among the inhabitants of the Marish down by the Brandywine. The Hobbits of that quarter, the Eastfarthing, were rather large and heavy-legged, and they wore dwarf-boots in muddy weather. But they were well known to be Stoors in a large part of their blood, as indeed was shown by the down that many grew on their chins. No Harfoot or Fallohide had any trace of a beard. Indeed, the folk of the Marish, and of Buckland, east of the River, which they afterwards occupied, came for the most part later into the Shire up from south-away; and they still had many peculiar names and strange words not found elsewhere in the Shire. It is probable that the craft of building, as many other crafts beside, was derived from the Dúnedain. But the Hobbits may have learned it direct from the Elves, the teachers of Men in their youth. For the Elves of the High Kindred had not yet forsaken Middle-earth, and they dwelt still at that time at the Grey Havens away to the west, and in other places within reach of the Shire. Three Elf-towers of immemorial age were still to be seen on the Tower Hills beyond the western marches. They shone far off in the moonlight. The tallest was furthest away, standing alone upon a green mound. The Hobbits of the Westfarthing said that one could see the Sea from the lop of that tower; but no Hobbit had ever been known to climb it. Indeed, few Hobbits had ever seen or sailed upon the Sea, and fewer still had ever returned to report it. Most Hobbits regarded even rivers and small boats with deep misgivings, and not many of them could swim. And as the days of the Shire lengthened they spoke less and less with the Elves, and grew afraid of them, and distrustful of those that had dealings with them; and the Sea became a word of fear among them, and a token of death, and they turned their faces away from the hills in the west. The craft of building may have come from Elves or Men, but the Hobbits used it in their own fashion. They did not go in for towers. Their houses were usually long, low, and comfortable. The oldest kind were, indeed, no more than built imitations of smials, thatched with dry grass or straw, or roofed with turves, and having walls somewhat bulged. That stage, however, belonged to the early days of the Shire, and hobbit-building had long since been altered, improved by devices, learned from Dwarves, or discovered by themselves. A preference for round windows, and even round doors, was the chief remaining peculiarity of hobbit-architecture. The houses and the holes of Shire-hobbits were often large, and inhabited by large families. (Bilbo and Frodo Baggins were as bachelors very exceptional, as they were also in many other ways, such as their friendship with the Elves.) Sometimes, as in the case of the Tooks of Great Smials, or the Brandybucks of Brandy Hall, many generations of relatives lived in (comparative) peace together in one ancestral and many-tunnelled mansion. All Hobbits were, in any case, clannish and reckoned up their relationships with great care. They drew long and elaborate family-trees with innumerable branches. In dealing with Hobbits it is important to remember who is related to whom, and in what degree. It would be impossible in this book to set out a family-tree that included even the more important members of the more important families at the time which these tales tell of. The genealogical trees at the end of the Red Book of Westmarch are a small book in themselves, and all but Hobbits would find them exceedingly dull. Hobbits delighted in such things, if they were accurate: they liked to have books filled with things that they already knew, set out fair and square with no contradictions.

2020.10.20 00:04 prinsesed Notes from the BB12 Reunion Zoom Call Fundraiser for Give Kids the World

A few days ago, some of the cast from BB12 participated in a Zoom call fundraiser, raising +$1200 for Give Kids the World. This was one of the first seasons of BB that I watched, so I decided to get a ticket!
Matt, Ragan, Britney, Rachel, Brendan, and Andrew were on the call. Unfortunately, Kathy received another call and couldn’t participate. I think it may have been work-related… she was not, in fact, still stuck in the caramel.
I’ve lurked /bigbrother for a long time and thought I’d share some anecdotes that I found interesting/amusing. There’s a lot to cover, but here we go:
Anyways, it was a fun call and I hope Give Kids the World will coordinate more of these in the future!
EDIT #1: words.
EDIT #2: As pointed out in the comment section below, if you enjoyed the contents of this post please consider making a donation to Give Kids the World. Especially since they cannot grant wishes due to COVID. They currently transforming their resort for the outdoor 'A Night of A Million Lights' walk-through spectacular!

2020.10.19 20:41 kbelou KFGD 800th Episode Stats & Info

Hey everyone,
I wrote into KFGD today for the 800th episode of the show. Blessing and Tim went through a bunch of what I wrote on the air but I wanted to post the whole thing here on Reddit (like I've done for the 300th Episode, 400th Episode, 500th Episode, 600th Episode, and 700th Episode). I enjoy putting all these together so I hope it makes y'all smile too! Without further ado, here's my email:

Today, Monday October 19, 2020 is the 800th episode of Kinda Funny Games Daily! Congratulations!
As I did for the previous 100-episode milestones, I’ve put together some stats and fun facts about the show!

  29. Andrea and Imran - 2 shows (+0)
Others:

  1. Greg - 518 shows (+41 since episode 700)
  2. Blessing - 105 shows (+46)
  3. Tim - 71 shows (+7)
  4. Andrea - 30 shows (+0)

  7. Fran - 19 shows (+0)
  8. Snowbike Mike - 3 shows (+0)
  9. Danny/Chastity/Cheeks Jr - 1 show each
For some advanced metrics, the rankings for percentage of shows run to shows hosted (for KF employees and part-timers) is:
  1. Greg - 96.8% (-1.3% since episode 700)
  2. Blessing - 72.4% (+1.3%)
  3. Fran - 37.3% (-2.3%)
  4. Jared - 35.4% (0% change)
  5. Imran - 33.3% (-1.7%)
  6. Tim - 26.8% (-0.6%)
  7. Andrea - 17.5% (-0.4%)
  8. Danny - 4.3% (0% change)
Rankings for who has done the sound FX for the show (Roper’s Report jingle, Bakers Dozen)!
  1. Kevin - 524 shows (+89)
  2. Barrett - 155 shows (+11)
  3. Cool Greg - 91 shows (+0)
  4. Andy - 16 shows (+0)
  5. Joey - 12 shows (+0)
  6. Greg Miller Industries - 1 show (+0)
Sadly, there have now been a total of 153 shows since the last show in the studio :(
There have been only 6 shows without a post-show since the Patreon benefit was added in January.
On July 7, 2020 Imran stated he’s going to sneak in one wrong thing per show to see if anyone catches him. And at that point the latest KFGD villain was born.
On July 13, Tim suddenly stopped speaking as a giant spider invaded his house. He momentarily steps out of frame, yells “OH SHIT”, but then comes back on and announces he got it.
On July 16, Kevin was talking to Greg and Blessing and all of a sudden a plate of pancakes was delivered to him and he quietly says “Can I get the boysenberry, please?” to an off-screen Paula.
There have been three shows of KFGD that were more than 2-person hosts. The first two were 3-host shows where Greg, Andrea & Victor Lucas then Greg, Andrea, & Tim hosted. The latest was on July 23 when it was a 5-host show! Greg, Tim, Blessing, Andy, and Snowbike Mike all joined together to host after the Xbox Showcase.
On August 17th, KFBF Dylan Fisher saved Tim by creating a release date jingle so he would never again have to sing it himself.
On September 1st 2nd, there was a live audience for the show for possibly the first time since working the show was in studio: Greg’s apartment building window cleaner perched himself on Greg’s window to watch Greg broadcast.
In maybe the most important update: On Donktober 1st Greg announced a gold-star program for Kevin, if he gets awarded 25 gold stars by KFGD hosts in the month of Donktober, Kevin will get a pizza party. As of Friday Donktober 16th, Kevin has been awarded 16 gold stars during KFGD and 1 during Gamescast. With only 10 working days left in Donktober, will Kevin continue towards his goal?Will the Gamescast one be counted in the final total?
In the month of Donktober, only once has the jack-o-lantern blazer been worn. It was by Imran Blessing (editor's note: Blessing I had typed this wrong in the email, it was you that wore it, not Imran, sorry for the mistake!). Take that for what it is worth.
One of the longest-living traditions of KFGD is Greg dressing up for the show. However, Greg has succumbed to the shirts & sweatpants style like every other American working at home during this pandemic. In fact, he has now dressed down for a total of 163 shows, including 76 of the 77 shows he’s hosted during the pandemic. The only show he was dressed up for was on Friday April 17th.
The job that you guys do every day to continue to put out amazing content on this show and the other shows is unreal. Thank you for continuing your hard work despite the crazy world that 2020 has become (#voteforbiden). The hour or so of KFGD is something I look forward to every day and it’s because of the hard work that you guys put in. Thank you. Looking forward to the next 100 episodes!
<3

2020.09.30 23:23 Danstenziano Trip Report- the ‘Super Sierra High Route’ (YHR + SHR + SoSHR)

Howdy sub, got in a pretty exciting trip this summer and thought I’d share it here. Basically the idea was to hike the whole length of the Sierra in a high route style thru-hike, by combining three routes: Andrew Skurka's Yosemite High Route, Steve Roper's Sierra High Route, and Alan Dixon/Don Wilson's Southern Sierra High Route.
Photo album: https://imgur.com/a/YCIo0vk
Itinerary: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1vTgavxIhQQW8TGNfgREZaEdcAmI90ccfBEaVOyyTEmQ/edit?usp=sharing
Lighterpack: https://www.lighterpack.com/b7xw9k

Details of trip:
Starting Location/Date: Leavitt Meadows TH (Near Sonora Pass) 8/15/20
Ending Location/Date: Cottonwood Lakes TH (South of Whitney) 9/6/20
Trip length: 305 miles (including hike out over Bishop Pass for resupply)
Trip time: 24 days (including 2 zeros)
Probably somewhere in the realm of 60% of the route is off-trail with another 10-20% being on faint use trails or abandoned trails, although this is just an approximation. I was joined by my friends Armstrong and Mudslide who I met on the CDT last year.
We followed the Yosemite High Route from start to Blue Lake Pass (south of Tuolumne)
Then took the Sierra High Route from Blue Lake Pass to Dusy Basin
And Finished with a full hike of the Southern Sierra High Route from Dusy Basin to Cottonwood Lakes.
We resupplied twice, at Reds Meadow and in Bishop via Bishop Pass (no hitchhiking involved).

I will spare you guys the day-by-day and instead just talk about the character of the three routes and what I felt were the highlights, lowlights, and major challenges.
The first stretch from Leavitt Meadows to Reds Meadow was 118 miles and took us 7.5 days. The first 5.5 days were spent on the Yosemite High Route, with the first 22 miles or so being the on-trail approach to the northern terminus in Grace Meadow.
The Yosemite High Route had some of the strongest wilderness character of the entire route, even though the terrain was a little bit gentler, traversing very seldom visited and mostly off-trail areas of Yosemite. Highlights included lonely basins and canyons like Stubblefield Canyon and the basin which holds Rock Island Lake, as well as exciting and challenging passes like Matterhorn and Stanton Passes, both class 3. It also featured a small amount of easy forest and meadow walking, which I took as a welcome respite from the more rocky and desolate places.
Overall I would describe the terrain as very slabby; the rock quality was generally solid. If you’ve done any of the Roper route, you might expect to see lots of loose talus and scree, but there isn’t very much of that on the YHR (though we didn’t do the last 30 miles or so). Exceptions to this rule would include Russell Pass and Kuna Crest which were both pretty loose.
On Day 5 we left Skurka’s route for the original Sierra High Route near Blue Lake Pass. We ended up happy that we joined the Roper route here rather than further north at Tuolumne Meadows, because the YHR is much more exciting south of Tuolumne than the SHR. In particular the area around Russell Pass and Maclure Glacier is not to be missed.
After joining the SHR we had 2 more days of hiking before reaching our first resupply at Reds Meadow. This section of the SHR was phenomenal, including awesome places like North Glacier Pass, Iceberg Lake, and Minaret Lakes. The only challenging part was getting over North Glacier Pass, where the terrain through the course of the very long climb is complex and somewhat confusing.
Resting at Reds Meadow was nice, although everything was more expensive than I remembered, perhaps due to covid. There were quite a few JMT hikers there, only slightly less than I would expect in a normal year.
After leaving Reds, we were entirely on the SHR for 86 miles and 5.5 days before reaching Bishop, our next and final resupply. We hiked through two ‘chapters’ of Roper's route: Lake Country from Reds to Lake Italy, and Whitebark Country from Lake Italy to Dusy Basin.
Most of the 86 miles had a similar character: vast, lake dotted basins and alpine meadows punctuated by rocky and sometimes loose passes. My favorite area was the Bear Lakes Basin, south of Lake Italy. Just a bunch of gorgeous and very remote lakes and mountains and mostly smooth cross-country travel.
Pretty much all of the passes between Reds and Dusy Basin were chill except for one: Snow-Tongue Pass. Snow-Tongue has a reputation for being one of the big bad passes on the SHR and, for me at least, it lived up to the hype. We did the pass in the opposite direction that most do, so we ascended rather than descended the bad (north) side.
It’s basically loose scree and talus and other crud on a particularly steep dirt slope. You have to check any rocks you grab onto because most of them have the potential to slide. It is a bit hairy and demands focus and caution, but it’s certainly doable.
As a side note, on a separate trip I did one of Roper’s bypasses for Snow-Tongue, Alpine Col, and generally found it to be easier.
After Snow-Tongue, the high route links up with the JMT which leads to the Bishop Pass Trail, which we took out to South Lake where the town shuttle brought us into Bishop for resupply.
In Bishop we stayed at the town campground to make our resupply more covid-sensitive.
The remainder of our route was a complete thru of the Southern Sierra High Route: a little over 100 miles in 6.5 days including a side trip to Mt. Sill and the Mt. Baxter alternate. In my opinion, the SoSHR felt the least ‘wild’ out of the three routes, and featured the most on-trail hiking, but it also had several of the most challenging obstacles: Mt. Sill (side trip), Mt. Baxter (a more challenging alternate to the JMT section), and Mt. Whitney via the Mountaineer’s Route.
Mt. Sill lies just a few miles off the SoSHR and can be accessed from the Cirque Lake basin. It’s a classic 3rd class 14er, and R.J. Secor says that it has the best summit view of any peak in the Sierra. It’s a tough climb, but given how spectacular the view is, and how close it is to the route, I’d fully recommend it. Just make sure to budget enough time. Dixon (the guide author) says to budget 4-5 hours round trip, but it took our group at least 7 hours. The only class 3 sections are found near the summit, and they’re solid and not too bad if you take your time.
Summiting Mt. Baxter is part of a longer alternate route that allows you to bypass a huge chunk of JMT. Most of this alternate is chill but Baxter is definitely not, and it’s more difficult and time-consuming than the guide lets on. I’d place it on the hard side of class 2 with a touch of class 3 at the top, but the rock is loose, and the class 2 difficulty is pretty sustained for the entire climb and descent. Since we didn’t budget enough time, we found ourselves at the summit at sunset with a steep, loose talus descent awaiting us. We descended this crap for at least 90 minutes by headlamp before reaching relative safety. For me, this was the lowlight of the trip.
All that said, I’d still recommend the Baxter alt for its excellent views; just make sure you start the climb to Baxter earlier in the day.
The next major objective was Whitney, but there was a lot of cool stuff in between, such as Sixty Lakes Basin, and most notably the climb to Junction Pass on the Old JMT. This trail was decommissioned when they blasted out Forester Pass and has been semi-abandoned ever since. Near the top you’re up on a ridge that divides the basin that leads to Forester and Center Basin, which you just hiked up. It was really cool to look out over the two basins, and to see Forester from a different perspective.
The route remains very scenic and exciting from here all the way to Whitney, taking you through huge, desolate basins and the highest terrain of the route. My favorite place before reaching Whitney was the view of Tulainyo Lake from Russell-Carillon Col. At 12,818 ft, Tulainyo Lake is one of the highest lakes in North America. This massive lake, surrounded by serrated peaks, is perched in an airy granite basin and has no inlet or outlet.
Next came the Mountaineer’s Route, which was super fun and challenging. The last 2-300 feet are an awesome class 3 scramble on mostly solid rock. At one point I got a little over-confident which led to me getting off route and a subsequent sketchy maneuver to get back on track, but other than that it was enjoyable.
After Whitney there were still another 20 miles or so of fun stuff before reaching New Army Pass and the hike out.
Conditions: Mostly blue bird days. Highs in the 70s, lows in the 40s. One thunderstorm. Lots of smoke near the end. No bugs.

Review of the big stuff-
Quilt - EE revelation 20 (old 2016 version)
This quilt was borderline overkill, as our night temps rarely dipped below 40. It was nice for one night that hovered around freezing.
Shelter - SlingFin SplitWing tarp and a piece of polycryo
My whole shelter system was sub-10oz which was perfect given the difficulty of the hike and the lack of rain and bugs. The tarp did fine for the one thunderstorm I pitched in.
Pack - MLD Prophet
Ideal pack for this trip. Just big enough for minimal gear plus BV500 with 7.5 days food and just enough support for starting weight of 25lb. Frameless was nice for more mobility when scrambling.
Shoes - tried out two very different pairs, the La Sportiva Bushido II and the Altra King Mtn 2
The Bushidos are a great shoe for this kind of stuff if they fit you. They didn’t fit me that well but I tried to force it, which resulted in my pinky toes getting destroyed by the narrow toe box. The control, grip, and stiffness are great, though. Only performance downside is that the lugs are somewhat shallow and wear down kinda faster than I expected. They really shined on slab and solid scrambling and suffered a little on loose dirt.
The King Mtn have a similar stack height but that’s where the similarities end. The Altras are much more flexible and much sloppier on technical terrain. I was able to do loose class 2 and 3 in them but they are not ideal. The best part about the Kings is the outsole. The lugs are very aggressive which made them secure on loose dirt and scree. The rubber is also very grippy making them equally good on steep slab. They struggle with any kind of side-hilling and the flexibility and wide toe box are not good for using smaller footholds when scrambling.
Anyone have any suggestions for good high route shoes for those with platypus feet?

2020.09.21 18:56 GodModeBasketball Analysis: Looking back at the 1949 Strictly Stock Tracks

It's time to turn back the clock all the way back to the beginning as the 1949 Strictly Stock Schedule and all 8 tracks that hosted a Cup race:
  1. Charlotte Speedway: Not to be confused with the current Charlotte Motor Speedway, this 3/4 Mile dirt track started it all. Although Glenn Dunaway won the race, it was later found out that he was disqualified for illegal springs. As a result, Jim Roper was declared the winner(Fun fact: Roper was the grand marshal for the Spring Texas race on NASCAR's 50th Anniversary season, in 1998). The track would host only one more race, in 1950, won by Tim Flock. The track was forced to be demolished due to Interstate 85's extension into Virginia.
  2. Daytona Beach and Road Course: The longest track to ever host a NASCAR Race(4.2 Miles), this track was instrumental in creating NASCAR as a whole, with the Streamline Hotel being right in the middle of it. It was a unique course in the sense that the backstretch was the Daytona beaches while the front stretch was Highway A1A. NASCAR President Bill France Sr used to race on the track in the 1940s and later would be NASCAR's first CEO. The track would be abandoned after France Sr constructed the famed Daytona International Speedway in 1959. Both the beaches and Highway A1A are still around.
  3. Orange Speedway: Also known as Occoneechee or Hillsboro, Orange Speedway was a 1-mile dirt oval, set in the woods of Hillsboro, North Carolina. This track stuck around longer than most, hosting 33 more Grand National races until it was dropped after the 1968 Grand National season. The track is still around as a forest park. Bit of a spoiler, this is the only dirt track to still be preserved from the schedule.
  4. Langhorne Speedway: One of the most feared and dangerous speedways, Langhorne was a 1-mile flat oval with little banking. The track would later gain infamy as 3 of the first 4 drivers to die in NASCAR all occurred at Langhorne. The track was not on the 1958 Grand National schedule. However, it still held the Langhorne Open, one of the most prestigious Modified races on the calendar. The track was finally closed in 1971. Currently, a Restaurant Depot, a Sam's Club, and a CarFax sit on the remains of Langhorne.
  5. Hamburg Speedway: Not much is known about Hamburg Speedway. However, the track was a half-mile dirt oval located in Hamburg, New York. The track would host only 2 cup races throughout its existence, with Jack White winning the first and Dick Linder winning the second. The Erie County Fair sits at the site of Hamburg Speedway.
  6. Martinsville Speedway: The oldest existing track to still have a Cup date, as of 2020. Martinsville is a track just over a half-mile in the shape of a paperclip. Red Byron, that year's champion, won the first running of Martinsville. Ever since then, Martinsville, besides the 1949 season, has held at least 2 races on the calendar, a Spring race and a Fall race.
  7. Heidelberg Raceway: A track that held Grand National races off and on throughout its existence, Heidelberg was a 1/2 mile dirt track, located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The track would host 4 Cup races, in 1949, 1951, 1959, and 1960(Fun Fact: The last time Heidelberg held a race, Lee Petty and his son Richard finished 1-2). The track was still around in 1973, when it held a Grand National East race, won by Tom Colella. Raceway Plaza sits on the remains of Heidelberg.
  8. North Wilkesboro Speedway: And lastly, North Wilkesboro. North Wilkesboro was a 5/8 mile track located in North Carolina. Tim Flock's brother, Bob Flock, won the inaugural running. The track was a mainstay of the series, hosting 2 Cup races each year from 1950 to 1996. In 1995, Track President Enoch Staley passed away from a stroke. Bob Bahre took up a 50% stake of North Wilkesboro. The track would host their final 2 races for 1996. The track is still around, but it is in tatters. The two dates North Wilkesboro had turned into the inaugural Texas Motor Speedway and a 2nd race at New Hampshire.

2020.08.13 21:13 VictimOfFun Thanks WotC for Standard 2021 Ranked queue

Maybe it's just me, and maybe because it's just the first day, but playing in the Standard 2021 ranked queue has been great. Interesting deck match ups, seeing "new" cards, and not having to deal with the worst cards for the last year is such a breath of fresh air. Far less BM emotes too from players as well as quicker turns!
This Standard is much more fun, so thanks WotC.
*I reserve the right to complain about ropers and new broken interactions at a later date!

2020.05.19 16:15 PaulJP Fallout 76: Update 19 Patch Notes – May 19, 2020

From FC Mods

This is done as a courtesy for any users that can't view Bethesda's site, or prefer to use the Reddit feed to keep up on news. FC Mods are NOT Bethesda staff, and responding to this message won't get your message to Bethesda staff (they might see it if they stop by, but it isn't guaranteed). As always, for official feedback, go to the official fo76 subreddit, Bethesda forums, or Bethesda support page.

From Bethesda.net

We’re releasing Update 19 for Fallout 76 today, which introduces Ally Customization, includes new and returning events, updates for automatic item naming, backpack skin improvements, and new limited-time Nuclear Winter Challenges and cosmetic rewards. We’ve also addressed a wide variety of bugs, including many issues reported by the community.

Update 19 Highlights

Update Version

Download size for today’s update will be around 10.7 GB for Xbox and 8.6 GB for PS4. For PC, the download size will be approximately 4.1 GB through the Bethesda.net launcher, and around 5.9 GB via Steam. * PC: 1.3.1.26 * PS4: 1.3.1.26 * Xbox: 1.3.1.26

Customize Your Allies

Starting today, you can now share your wardrobe with your Allies and swap their outfits to your heart’s content with Ally Customization. * When interacting with an Ally in your C.A.M.P., a new “customize” option will now appear that you can use to change their clothing. * Outfits, Headwear, Costumes, Armor—If you can wear it, then so can your Ally! The only current exceptions are Power Armor and Weapons. * Anything you dress your Ally in is purely cosmetic. They will not receive any buffs or bonuses from the apparel they wear. * Additionally, when viewing another player’s Ally, its name will be adjusted to include the name of the C.A.M.P. owner, e.g.: ’s Ally. * Please note that scrapping an Ally Station will revert that Ally to their default outfit. Allies will also appear to be in their default outfit if they are in an instance with you.

Hunt for the Treasure Hunter

Mole Miners are searching for riches around Appalachia, and you can hunt them down to claim their loot for yourself in a new series of limited-time “Hunt for the Treasure Hunter” events we’re introducing with Update 19.

Treasure Hunter Mole Miners

  • Use your keen tracking senses to hunt down Treasure Hunter Mole Miners to collect their Mole Miner Pails, which contain all of the loot they’ve been hoarding.
  • Treasure Hunter Mole Miners are legendary creatures, and you will hear them when they’re nearby.
  • Treasure Hunter Mole Miners can drop rewards from one of three different tiers: Dusty Mole Miner Pails (low), Mole Miner Pails (medium), and Ornate Mole Miner Pails (high).
  • The higher quality the Pail, the better chances for rare loot, including Outfits, Mounted Head Plans, a new Backpack Plan, and the Marine Armor Helmet Plan.
  • Pails can be traded and sold to other players, but cannot be sold to NPC vendors.

Craft Your Own Mole Miner Pails

  • While a Treasure Hunter event is live, Vendors around Appalachia will sell Empty Mole Miner Pails in exchange for Caps.
  • Use Empty Pails, along with a few additional materials, to craft full Mole Miner Pails of low, medium, or high-quality.
  • You can give or sell crafted Pails to other players, or keep them for yourself.

Head to the Ash Heap on May 21!

  • The first Hunt for the Treasure Hunter event will take place from May 21 – 25 in the Ash Heap region of Appalachia.
  • Future Hunt for the Treasure Hunter events will each occur in a different region.

Fasnacht Parade Marches Back to Helvetia

Starting next week, you can travel to Helvetia to take part in the Fasnacht Seasonal Event by helping the local Protectrons prepare for the town's annual celebration and parade. * Help the bots by hanging decorations, gathering ingredients for a feast, or playing musical instruments, among other activities, before the timer expires. * If you and your event mates complete the preparations in time, the bots will line up at the center of town to begin the parade. * Successfully guide the marchers to the end of their parade route, and you will be rewarded with loot! * The more marchers who survive, the higher your chances at rare loot, which may include Fasnacht-themed C.A.M.P. plans and a chance to earn a fancy Fasnacht mask. * We’ve added a number of festive new masks this year, and adjusted their drop rates following community feedback. While some are still less common than others, they should drop more often this time. * You can also trade your Fasnacht Masks to other players, if you wish. * Fasnacht Parade will begin every hour at the top of the hour starting on May 25. The event will last for a full week, so you'll have plenty of chances join in the celebration!

Design Updates

Automatic Item Name Improvements

With this update, we’ve improved how the game automatically names your weapons and armors based on their mods, legendary attributes, and Atomic Shop paints. * Going forward, automatically generated names will appear in a much more consistent order, and they will reliably include an item’s main attributes. * Additionally, Atomic Shop paint and skin names no longer overwrite the item’s primary legendary effect name. * Items should now generally follow this naming convention: Primary Legendary Attribute Name + Atomic Shop Cosmetic Name + Mod Name + Weapon Name * If you have a legendary Gatling Gun with the Black Knight paint and a Prime Receiver, for example, its automatically generated name should now be: Anti-Armor Black Knight Prime Gatling Gun * Keep in mind that you can still give your items custom names, which will override their automatically generated names. * Please note: Given the many combinations that are possible through all the different mods, legendary effects, Atomic Shop paints, and item types, there may cases where new item names appear incorrect. * For example, certain elements may appear out of order, or might be missing from the name. * These are visual issues, and all your mods should still function correctly. Please let us know if you spot any naming bugs on your gear after today, and we will squash them.

Backpack Appearance Updates

We’ve improved Backpack customization so that you can now apply different appearances to your Backpacks as skins—no more crafting required! * Head to an Armor Workbench and use the modify menu to swap the appearance of your existing Backpack with any skins you’ve unlocked through quests, events, or the Atomic Shop. * Skins can now be applied to Small Backpacks, as well for those who have not yet unlocked the normal Backpack Plan by completing the “Order of the Tadpole” quest. * You can apply skins to your existing Backpacks, as well as any new ones you craft.

Art and Animation

  • BBQ Grills: Get hungry! When using a BBQ Grill, your character will now appear to flip and grill some tasty steaks.
  • Grognak’s Throne: We’ve added a new animation that will play when sitting in Grognak’s Throne so that you can survey your land with the royal confidence.

Items

  • Liberty Prime Power Armor: If you’re a strong silent type, you may be pleased to know that we’ve added an alternate version of the Liberty Prime Power Armor helmet that will not play voice lines while you’re wearing it.
  • Players who own the Liberty Prime Power Armor can now craft the silent version of the helmet at a Power Armor Station.

Nuclear Winter

Limited Time “Survivors” Challenges – Unlock Themed Cosmetics!

  • We’ve added 8 Nuclear Winter Challenges that you can complete to earn new “Survivors” themed cosmetic rewards starting today, and lasting until 7:00 p.m. ET on June 11.
  • One new challenge will appear in the Character Challenge menu each day until all 8 are available, and they will remain available until the end of the event.
  • You can earn the first reward with 150 Overseer XP, and the last with 2,500 Overseer XP. All others will each require 2,000 Overseer XP.
  • Overseer XP you earn will roll over from one Challenge to the next, but they must be completed one at a time and in order.
  • As you complete each Challenge, you’ll be able to claim new themed rewards, like new furniture for your C.A.M.P., “Survivor’s Denim” and Ghillie Suit outfits, as well as skins for Nuclear Winter’s newest weapons: The Bow, Cattle Prod, and Gauss Shotgun.
  • You can learn more about this event directly from ZAX and preview the rewards by reading our latest ZAX Transmission article on Fallout.com.

New Items

  • New Weapons: The Bow, Cattle Prod, and Gauss Shotgun have been added and tuned for combat in Nuclear Winter matches. Find them in Supply Crates as you scavenge for gear.

2020.05.03 20:37 did_i_fall_asleep Adolf Hitler was not only an atheist, he was explicitly anti-religion. It's time to stop denying historical fact.

In the long run, National Socialism and religion will no longer be able to exist together. [On a question from C. S., whether this antagonism might mean a war, the Fuehrer continued:] No, it does not mean a war. The ideal solution would be to leave the religions to devour themselves, without persecutions. But in that case we must not replace the Church by something equivalent. That would be terrifying! It goes without saying that the whole thing needs a lot of thought. Everything will occur in due time. . . . The heaviest blow that ever struck humanity was the coming of Christianity. Bolshevism is Christianity's illegitimate child. Both are inventions of the Jew. The deliberate lie in the matter of religion was introduced into the world by Christianity. Bolshevism practises a lie of the same nature, when it claims to bring liberty to men, whereas in reality it seeks only to enslave them. In the ancient world, the relations between men and gods were founded on an instinctive respect. It was a world enlightened by the idea of tolerance. Christianity was the first creed in the world to exterminate its adversaries in the name of love. Its key-note is intolerance. Without Christianity, we should not have had Islam. The Roman Empire, under Germanic influence, would have developed in the direction of world-domination, and humanity would not have extinguished fifteen centuries of civilisation at a single stroke. Let it not be said that Christianity brought man the life of the soul, for that evolution was in the natural order of things. The result of the collapse of the Roman Empire was a night that lasted for centuries.

I want to start this post off by stating that the intention here is not to argue or in any way corroborate the claim that atheists are inherently more likely to be immoral, violent, or evil. Only a fool would believe that religiosity, or a lack thereof, can be indicative of one's moral character.
But the historical fact is that Adolf Hitler was an atheist.
Our culture is obsessed with Nazis. They're a media trope, they're ubiquitous in political rhetoric to the point that we have Godwin's law, and they're making a big comeback the world over.
But very few people are really all that familiar with Nazi ideology. Contrapoints has made a few really good videos on the topic, and the one I'd recommend for some background knowledge for this context would be her video Degeneracy. To give you the basic idea, we'll discuss degeneracy. One of the core components of Nazi ideology was that German society was deteriorating or degenerating as a result of what they deemed as "undesirables." These were Jews, queer people, the disabled, etc.
It is the case that Hitler often invoked the Christian God in his propaganda. But this was a political tool. He desired, and probably was obligated, to galvanize the religious right in Germany and incorporate them into his NatSoc movement. But Hitler himself despised these people.
The reason why the ancient world was so pure, light and serene was that it knew nothing of the two great scourges: the pox and Christianity. Christianity is a prototype of Bolshevism: the mobilisation by the Jew of the masses of slaves with the object of undermining society. Thus one understands that the healthy elements of the Roman world were proof against this doctrine. Yet Rome to-day allows itself to reproach Bolshevism with having destroyed the Christian churches! As if Christianity hadn't behaved in the same way towards the pagan temples.
Hitler viewed Christianity as an invention of the Jews. Have you ever heard of the term Cultural Marxism? Yeah, it's an anti-semitic conspiracy theory that states that Jewish intellectuals are infiltrating Western institutions in order to destroy them. People who believe in that stuff think that things like the Queer rights movement, Feminism, racial equality, etc are being pushed into mainstream culture as a way to weaken Western society. It's a direct continuation of the Cultural Bolshevism propaganda pushed by Nazi Germany, in which...Jewish intellectuals were infiltrating German institutions to yadda yadda. Hitler viewed Christianity as another means through which Jewish people destroyed societies. It is the case that Christianity is a descendant of Judaism, and Hitler believed that it was Christianity that led to the fall of the Roman Empire. You can see this in the quote I have at the beginning of this post. Some key elements of the quote include the following.
In the long run, National Socialism and religion will no longer be able to exist together.
I can't emphasize this enough. Adolf Hitler viewed religion as antithetical to his ideology.
The heaviest blow that ever struck humanity was the coming of Christianity. Bolshevism is Christianity's illegitimate child. Both are inventions of the Jew.
Bolshevism is one of the biggest enemies of Nazi ideology. Hitler is describing here his beliefs regarding the conception of Bolshevism. It goes Judaism -> Christianity -> Bolshevism. The arrows don't really do the idea justice: Hitler actually believed that Jewish people developed Christianity with the aim of destroying Roman society. He seeks to eliminate Judaism, Christianity, and Bolshevism.
Let it not be said that Christianity brought man the life of the soul, for that evolution was in the natural order of things. The result of the collapse of the Roman Empire was a night that lasted for centuries.
This is important, because it will lead us to develop the next idea. Adolf Hitler did often touch upon a certain sense of spirituality, but it was with the specific goal of reviving indigenous Germanic mythology, rather than anything close to Christianity (which, I reemphasize: he absolutely despised and believed to be responsible for the fall of Roman society). Why is this important? Because Adolf Hitler wanted to develop a fully autonomous Aryan society, with its own language, genetics, history, and culture. Hitler viewed Christianity as a form of Jewish imperialism. One that wiped out his people's true culture. As an aside, a lot of this stuff would later go on to inspire more contemporary white genocide conspiracy theories. Anyway, here's a relevant quote.
It seems to me that nothing would be more foolish than to re-establish the worship of Wotan. Our old mythology had ceased to be viable when Christianity implanted itself. Nothing dies unless it is moribund. At that period the ancient world was divided between the systems of philosophy and the worship of idols. It's not desirable that the whole of humanity should be stultified—and the only way of getting rid of Christianity is to allow it to die little by little. A movement like ours mustn't let itself be drawn into metaphysical digressions. It must stick to the spirit of exact science. It's not the Party's function to be a counterfeit for religion. If, in the course of a thousand or two thousand years, science arrives at the necessity of renewing its points of view, that will not mean that science is a liar. Science cannot lie, for it's always striving, according to the momentary state of knowledge, to deduce what is true. When it makes a mistake, it does so in good faith. It's Christianity that's the liar. It's in perpetual conflict with itself. One may ask whether the disappearance of Christianity would entail the disappearance of belief in God. That's not to be desired. The notion of divinity gives most men the opportunity to concretise the feeling they have of supernatural realities. Why should we destroy this wonderful power they have of incarnating the feeling for the divine that is within them? The man who lives in communion with nature necessarily finds himself in opposition to the Churches. And that's why they're heading for ruin—for science is bound to win. I especially wouldn't want our movement to acquire a religious character and institute a form of worship.
Wotan is a German name for the Germanic god Odin. While Hitler is expressing here that he does not want to simply revive these old traditions (I'll get to that later), it does corroborate the rest of what I said. Adolf Hitler was a hardcore Scientist. In fact, his ideology was a particularly violent culmination of Europe's developing Scientism, particularly the large body of work that had been done on what we now call scientific racism. One of the biggest influences in Nazi ideology was French author Arthur De Gobineau, who wrote the book Essay on the Inequality of Human Races, which is widely considered to be one of the cornerstones of scientific racism, and was fundamental for the development of the idea of the Aryan master race. To quote the book,
"The word degenerate, when applied to a people, means that the people no longer has the same intrinsic value as it had before, because it has no longer the same blood in its veins, continual adulterations having gradually affected the quality of that blood....in fact, the man of a decadent time, the degenerate man properly so-called, is a different being from the racial point of view, from the heroes of the great ages....I think I am right in concluding that the human race in all its branches has a secret repulsion from the crossing of blood...."
I don't know if there's any historical confirmation on whether or not Hitler read this book, but he practically copypasted his entire ideology from its pages. Pay attention to the word "decadent." This word is used in conjunction with "degenerate," which you'll recall I discussed above. If degenerates were the ones causing European society to decay, said decay was a result of their decadence. Decadence was seen as a sort of Hedonistic indulgence, whether it be through sexuality, substances, or...
Jewishness? Well, yes. The Cultural Bolshevism conspiracy theory insisted that Jews were using art to destroy German society. The Modernist artistic movement was labeled decadent by Nazi ideology, as it marked a transition from art as strictly representational to more abstract modalities. And guess who was thriving in that scene? Jews. So of course Jewishness was decadent; after all, look at their art.
(I know I still haven't gotten to pre-Christian Germanic mythology. I'm getting there).
The point is that Jewish developments were decadent. It didn't matter what they were. Or more often, weren't, since Nazi ideology even blamed Jews for the existence of gay people. And gay people were decadent because...people didn't like them, and their sex doesn't necessarily make children, and children are the future of the Aryan race. Or something. I gotta remind people here that I don't agree with any of this hogwash; I'm just telling you what the Nazis believed. Anyway, remember how Hitler viewed Christianity as a direct construction of the Jewish people? Yeah, so now Christianity and the Church are decadent in the eyes of Hitler. Think I'm making this up? Read this quote.
It is a great pity that this tendency towards religious thought can find no better outlet than the Jewish pettifoggery of the Old Testament. For religious people who, in the solitude of winter, continually seek ultimate light on their religious problems with the assistance of the Bible, must eventually become spiritually deformed. The wretched people strive to extract truths from these Jewish chicaneries, where in fact no truths exist. As a result they become embedded in some rut of thought or other and, unless they possess an exceptionally commonsense mind, degenerate into religious maniacs. It is deplorable that the Bible should have been translated into German, and that the whole of the German Folk should have thus become exposed to the whole of this Jewish mumbo jumbo. So long as the wisdom, particularly of the Old Testament, remained exclusively in the Latin of the Church, there was little danger that sensible people would become the victims of illusions as the result of studying the Bible. But since the Bible became common property, a whole heap of people have found opened to them lines of religious thought which—particularly in conjunction with the German characteristic of persistent and somewhat melancholy meditation—as often as not turned them into religious maniacs. When one recollects further that the Catholic Church has elevated to the status of Saints a whole number of madmen, one realises why movements such as that of the Flagellants came inevitably into existence in the Middle Ages in Germany. As a sane German, one is flabbergasted to think that German human beings could have let themselves be brought to such a pass by Jewish filth and priestly twaddle, that they were little different from the howling dervish of the Turks and the negroes, at whom we laugh so scornfully. It angers one to think that, while in other parts of the globe religious teaching like that of Confucius, Buddha and Mohammed offers an undeniably broad basis for the religious-minded, Germans should have been duped by a theological exposition devoid of all honest depth.

Have I made this clear enough yet? Adolf Hitler hated Christianity. He saw the church as an enemy of his ideology.
Okay, so we've readily established that Hitler wasn't a fan of the church. But I did mention that Hitler and the Nazis attempted to construct a neo-Germanic mythos. And this is true, because it was of dire importance that Hitler have a means utilize what he saw as the Aryan man's innate divinity. The Aryan race needed an origin story that not only separated the Aryan people from the degenerates, but elevated them above the Jews, the Blacks, the Gays, etc. BigThink has a decent article on some of this here. The long and short of it is as quoted.
Wiligut had developed a religion centered on worshipping the Germanic god Irmin. According to Wiligut, German culture dated back to 228,000 BC, a period of time when the Earth had three suns and was populated by giants, dwarfs, and other mythical creatures. He also claimed to be descended from a line of kings from this period of time. It should also be noted that Wiligut was a diagnosed schizophrenic.
Himmler was particularly attracted to Wiligut's brand of paganism, as he disliked the Judaic origins of Christianity. After the end of the WWII, Himmler believed that the "old Germanic gods will be restored." Leveraging his influence and his boss's desire to see a Germanic paganism, Wiligut attempted to stamp out competing philosophies to his Irminism.
In case you don't know, Himmler was one of Hitler's right-hand men. He and Hitler were huge influences on each other in terms of Nazi ideology, and Himmler was one of the key architects of the Holocaust. So we see here a common vein in Nazis and their ideology: Christianity was an aberration of Judaism, and as such must be eradicated from Aryan society.
So, finally, we can circle back to that quote we looked at earlier.
It seems to me that nothing would be more foolish than to re-establish the worship of Wotan. Our old mythology had ceased to be viable when Christianity implanted itself. Nothing dies unless it is moribund.
It's important to note that the definition of moribund is "(of a thing) in terminal decline; lacking vitality or vigor." So, Adolf Hitler was a huge believer in evolution. I am, too, but I'm not a racist about it. Hitler was, though. Point is: He believed that because indigenous Germanic mythology died out to Christianity, that it was bound to die sooner or later anyway. Hitler didn't personally adhere to any kind of Germanic religion, but there were points where he considered it ideologically advantageous to encourage its development over Christianity.
At that period the ancient world was divided between the systems of philosophy and the worship of idols. It's not desirable that the whole of humanity should be stultified—and the only way of getting rid of Christianity is to allow it to die little by little.
This is self-explanatory.
A movement like ours mustn't let itself be drawn into metaphysical digressions. It must stick to the spirit of exact science.
Yeah, so Adolf Hitler was a super hardcore Scientist. I really want to stress here that Scientism isn't just a respect for science. To quote Wikipedia
Scientism is the promotion of science as the best or only objective means by which society should determine normative and epistemological values.
And while I would disagree with this mentality, I wouldn't say that Hitler's Scientism is in any way typical of Scientism today. But it was a very important aspect of Hitler's ideology: Recall all that stuff about scientific racism? It was important that Hitler had a scientific and rigorous foundation to his racist ideas. The reason why is a little involved, and has to do with the Enlightenment philosophies of the time. We don't have time to get into that here so you'll have to look into that on your own. The point is that Hitler's epistemology was deeply and entirely scientific. At no point did religion factor into his personal views.
It's Christianity that's the liar. It's in perpetual conflict with itself. One may ask whether the disappearance of Christianity would entail the disappearance of belief in God. That's not to be desired. The notion of divinity gives most men the opportunity to concretise the feeling they have of supernatural realities. Why should we destroy this wonderful power they have of incarnating the feeling for the divine that is within them?
So this is what I was getting at earlier. Hitler (obviously) was completely enamored with the Aryan race, and he believed them to possess a sort of divinity, insofar as they were elevated and distinguished among humanity: The master race.
The man who lives in communion with nature necessarily finds himself in opposition to the Churches. And that's why they're heading for ruin—for science is bound to win. I especially wouldn't want our movement to acquire a religious character and institute a form of worship. It would be appalling for me.
Fin.
"But look at all these times Hitler talked about God and Jesus!"
Yeah, sure, and Donald Trump loves to give speeches at churches.
This post is long enough as-is, so I'll just go ahead and quote Wikipedia.
In Hitler's early political statements, he attempted to express himself to the German public as a Christian.[10] In his book Mein Kampf and in public speeches prior to and in the early years of his rule, he described himself as a Christian.[11][12] Hitler and the Nazi party promoted "Positive Christianity",[13] a movement which rejected most traditional Christian doctrines such as the divinity of Jesus, as well as Jewish elements such as the Old Testament.[14][15] In one widely quoted remark, he described Jesus as an "Aryan fighter" who struggled against "the power and pretensions of the corrupt Pharisees"[16] and Jewish materialism.[17]
While a small minority of historians accept these publicly stated views as genuine expressions of his spirituality,[10] the vast majority believe that Hitler was skeptical of religion and anti-Christian, but recognized that he could only be elected and preserve his political power if he feigned a commitment to and belief in Christianity, which the overwhelming majority of Germans believed in.[18] Privately, Hitler repeatedly deprecated Christianity, and told confidants that his reluctance to make public attacks on the Church was not a matter of principle, but a pragmatic political move.[19] In his private diaries, Goebbels wrote in April 1941 that though Hitler was "a fierce opponent" of the Vatican and Christianity, "he forbids me to leave the church. For tactical reasons."[20] Hitler's remarks to confidants, as described in the Goebbels Diaries, the memoirs of Albert Speer, and transcripts of Hitler's private conversations recorded by Martin Bormann in Hitler's Table Talk, are further evidence of his irreligious and anti-Christian beliefs;[1] these sources record a number of private remarks in which Hitler ridicules Christian doctrine as absurd, contrary to scientific advancement, and socially destructive.[1][21]
Once in office, Hitler and his regime sought to reduce the influence of Christianity on society.[22] From the mid-1930s, his government was increasingly dominated by militant anti-church proponents like Goebbels, Bormann, Himmler, Rosenberg and Heydrich whom Hitler appointed to key posts.[23] These anti-church radicals were generally permitted or encouraged to perpetrate the Nazi persecutions of the churches.[24] The regime launched an effort toward coordination of German Protestants under a unified Protestant Reich Church (but this was resisted by the Confessing Church), and moved early to eliminate political Catholicism.[25] Hitler agreed to the Reich concordat with the Vatican, but then routinely ignored it, and permitted persecutions of the Catholic Church.[26] Smaller religious minorities faced harsher repression, with the Jews of Germany expelled for extermination on the grounds of Nazi racial ideology. Jehovah's Witnesses were ruthlessly persecuted for refusing both military service and allegiance to Hitler's movement. Hitler said he anticipated a coming collapse of Christianity in the wake of scientific advances, and that Nazism and religion could not co-exist long term.[1] Although he was prepared to delay conflicts for political reasons, historians conclude that he ultimately intended the destruction of Christianity in Germany, or at least its distortion or subjugation to a Nazi outlook.[27]
Look, if what you're saying is contradicting Wikipedia, then you're probably just wrong.

2020.04.08 18:44 seikoturtle FRANKLY IN LOVE - David Yoon (September 2019 BOTM)

Good easy mindless read. Usually in tough times I look for a book that is light and easy to read. Especially now with the economic uncertainty and current lockdown situation resulting from CV.
If you enjoyed “Permanent Record” by Mary H.K. Choi (September 2019 BOTM) there is a good chance you will enjoy this as well.
Teen Love story that takes place during Frank Li’s Senior year of highschool in Southern California. So prepare yourself for SAT talk, slang, and modern meme references. As the son of Korean immigrants the Korean culture is heavily imprinted in his life. He falls for an American girl, who he has to date in secret because his parents want him to date a Korean girl. Frank's sister Hanna, married a non-korean and was practically disowned by her parents. To prevent that from happening, Frank decides to “fake date” a family friend whose parents also arrived in America from Korea around the same time as Frank's Parents did. Not quite the happiest ending like we have in “How Not To Die Alone” - Richard Roper (May 2019 BOTM) but it is not a cliffhanger, so at least that's good.
I recommend this book if you are looking for an easy read to either get back into reading or just escape from the current CV Situation.
Tip; Read the last paragraph in the acknowledgements, I usually skim them, but this time the last paragraph really hit.
Next BOTM I read; DAISY JONES & THE SIX - Taylor Jenkins Reid (March 2019 BOTM)

Did you read Frankly in Love? What are your thoughts, lets discuss!
