Canterbury single

Do you ever wish that as a church, we Anglicans had an international structure with centralized authority and leadership, kind of like the Roman church has, yet still being totally Anglican?

2020.11.14 03:35 AverageJoeninety Do you ever wish that as a church, we Anglicans had an international structure with centralized authority and leadership, kind of like the Roman church has, yet still being totally Anglican?

I know, we have the Lambeth conference which brings together Bishops from around the Anglican world once per decade. And we have the Archbishop of Canterbury as a kind of symbolic figurehead. But the reality is that nothing Lambeth decides, and nothing any single Archbishop decides, is binding on everyone. Each country (province) is its own organization with its own leadership structure and that's that.
I'm not saying I want a Pope. But would see any benefits to having a global structure to the church, lead by, perhaps, a council of Bishops and chaired by the Archbishop of Canterbury, or something along those lines?
This would make Anglican doctrines and practices the same everywhere.
I'm sure it sounds like pipe-dreaming. There would be so many hurdles to get over, so many cultural divides to bridge, and in fact most wouldn't even want this. Also, there would be all kinds of financial issues and questions for such a proposition.
But I am just wondering, if it could somehow work, would people like this, and would they see any benefit to it?

2020.11.12 18:16 Aray6 Interesting facts and tidbits about Augusta National and The Masters ⛳️

-Before Augusta National was purchased for use as a golf course, it was a a commercial plant nursery. It’s no surprise to see plants, trees and shrubs of all kinds, notably the dogwoods, magnolias and azaleas. Because of the nursery heritage, each hole is named for a special tree.
-Alister MacKenzie, the course designer and architect, never got to see his vision fulfilled. He died before the grass had even been planted. According to MacKenzie, "the chief object of every golf course architect worth his salt is to imitate the beauties of nature [and presumably also the hazards] so closely as to make his work indistinguishable from nature itself."
-Clifford Roberts, co-founder of Augusta, said that as long as he was alive, all the golfers would be white, and all of the caddies would be black. Clifford died in 1977. Twenty years later, in 1997, a black man won The Masters with a white caddie. Tiger Woods was only 21, and won the tournament by 12 strokes. Augusta National didn’t allow black members until 1990.
-Clifford Roberts also coined the term “Masters”. Bobby Jones hated it so much that he referred to the tournament as “the so-called Masters”.
-The only reason we have The Masters is because Bobby Jones and Clifford Roberts were rejected by the USGA in their bid to hold the 1934 US Open. They decided to start their own tournament. The Masters is now the only course that hosts a major tournament every year. The other 3 majors (US Open, British Open, PGA Championship) rotate courses.
-Bobby Jones wanted the course to be 19 holes. He wanted the extra hole so that losing golfers would have the opportunity to win back money in a game of double or nothing. The idea was dropped due to economic reasons.
-Augusta closed from 1943-1944 during World War II to support the war effort. They brought in 200 cattle and 1,000 turkeys to raise as livestock. The livestock kept the grass “mowed”, but beat up the fairways and devoured plantings. Forty-two German POW’s were brought in to restore the course. Members of a bridge building engineering crew in Erwin Rommel’s Nazi Akrika Corps helped erect a bridge over the 13th hole.
-At age 83, Clifford Roberts had been in ill health for several months with cancer and had a debilitating stroke. On September 29, 1977, a year after stepping down, Roberts killed himself via self-inflicted gunshots on the banks of Ike's Pond on the par 3 course at Augusta.
-1982 was the first year that golfers were allowed to bring their own caddies. Prior to that, the professionals were assigned local caddies. Caddies must abide by Augusta rules and wear the customary white jump suits.
-It's nearly impossible to become a member at Augusta. You have to be be nominated by a current Augusta member, and new initiations generally aren't accepted unless someone quits or dies. The total membership hovers around 300. The only president that was a member was Dwight D. Eisenhower.
-Also known as the "Eisenhower Pine", a loblolly pine was located on the 17th hole, approximately 210 yards from the tee. Eisenhower hit the tree so many times that, at a 1956 club meeting, he proposed that it be cut down. Not wanting to offend the president, the club's chairman, Clifford Roberts, immediately adjourned the meeting rather than reject the request. It was half-jokingly renamed in his honor rather than be cut down.
-Women weren’t permitted to be members until 2012. Condoleezza Rice and Darla Moore were the inaugural women members.
-Black players didn’t play in the tournament until 1975, when Lee Elder broke the color barrier. Elder will join Gary Player and Jack Nicklaus this year to hit ceremonial tee shots to kick the tournament off.
-Winners of the tournament get a green jacket. The jacket has become synonymous with The Masters. It originated in the 1930’s, when club members would wear green, so that spectators could easily identify people who could give them helpful and accurate information about the club and the event.
-Golfers must return their green jacket to Augusta National one year after winning the Masters. After that, their jacket can only be worn when they are at Augusta.
-Henry Picard, whose jacket was removed from the club before the tradition was well established, remained in his closet for a number of years, and is now on display at Canterbury Golf Club in Beachwood, Ohio, where he was the club professional for many years. He won the Masters in 1938.
-In 1994, somebody bought a green jacket in a thrift shop in Toronto for $5. It turns out it was an authentic Masters jacket from the 1950’s. The new owner sold the jacket at auction for $140,000.
-Augusta is technically considered a winter club, since it was designed for rich people from the northeast to escape the harsh winters. To this day, it closes in May, and doesn’t open back up until October. Caddies at the club are allowed to play the course for free on the very last day in May it is open.
-There is a 4 bedroom apartment above the Augusta clubhouse called “The Crows Nest” where amateurs participating in the Masters can stay during the tournament. The apartment looks like it hasn’t changed in 50 years, and each bedrooms has 2 twin beds. Amateurs who have stayed in the Crows Nest and won the tournament later in their careers include Jack Nicklaus,Tom Watson, Ben Crenshaw, Craig Stadler, Mark O’Meara, Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods.
-Augusta National is kept immaculate and green not by overuse of pesticides and chemicals, but by the painstaking effort of constant attention and upkeep, which includes one of the world's best greens-keeping staffs and a state of the art irrigation system. You know those pristine white sand bunkers? They're actually composed of waste product from the mining of aluminum. Basically, a company that mines feldspar (rocks) for aluminum has a process that produces waste in the form of really bright, pure quartz.
-It’s common lore that the famous azaleas are packed with ice to slow down the blooms until tournament week. However, it’s believed to be just myth. There have been a few tournaments where the azaleas and dogwoods are not in bloom at all. You can only do so much to control mother nature. Also, the ice would melt fairly fast considering it’s Georgia.....
-The Masters is nearly impossible to get tickets to. You have to win a ticket lottery (or be a rich big-wig of course). If you win the lottery, the tickets are very reasonable. However, the second hand market for tickets is obviously very expensive. It’s illegal to sell tickets within 2,700 feet of the gates.
-However, if you do find a way in as a spectator, the prices for food/beverages reflect the nostalgia of the tournament. You can buy one of their famous egg salad or pimento sandwiches for only $1.50. The most expensive sandwich is a grilled chicken wrap and that’s $3.
-All food items are served in green plastic wrapping. If spectators litter, it won’t be as noticeable to the viewers watching at home on TV that there is trash on the ground.
-None of the food or drinks sold are name brand. You can’t buy a Sprite or Coke, only a lemon lime or coda soda. When you order an “American Craft Beer”, you don’t even know what brand it is.
-On Sunday, no alcohol can be sold until the last church in the area calls to notify that church has been let out.
-Augusta National also has its own language of sorts. There is no "rough" at the Masters -- that would imply imperfection -- there is simply a first and second cut. Attendees of the Masters are not "fans," they are “patrons” and are to be referred to as such. When you make the turn from No. 9 to No. 10, you don't go from the front nine to the back nine, you are going from the first nine to the second nine.
-Jim Nance was the person who coined the term “A tradition unlike any other.” But because he said it on air and Augusta owns the rights for things said and seen on air they trademarked the phrase and get all the money from it.
-Cell phones are prohibited at all times and cameras are not permitted during the tournament. It's one of the only places in the U.S. where there are long lines for payphones.
-There's a huge fence around the course to keep out animals. There has been one deer sighting in the last 65 years and visitors often talk of never seeing a single squirrel. Birds are also mysteriously rarely seen at Augusta National. Bird sounds are heard during the television broadcasts, but there is a rumor that those sounds are artificial.
-Augusta National is the most recognizable brand in golf, as courses go. And it's willing to give up millions of dollars in revenue to protect that brand. Augusta believes less is more, and over-saturation of TV coverage will hurt its brand and mystique. As a result, it leaves more than $100 million on the table and generates a revenue of only $30 million, none of which comes from TV. Just since the turn of the century has it shown Sunday's final round in its entirety, and not until 1995 did the first two rounds get any TV coverage.
-No tipping is allowed at Augusta National – a rule that dates back to the days of co-founder Clifford Roberts, who didn’t want members to be treated differently based on how much they tipped.
-Patrons are not allowed to run at Augusta National, which leads to quite an amusing scene when the gates open each day. Backwards hats are also prohibited.
-One of the coolest Masters traditions is the “Champions Dinner”, which is held the Tuesday before the tournament. The previous year’s winner gets to choose the menu for the dinner, which only past winners are invited to. It is common for the host to pick foods from their region of origin.
Some examples include:
-Wiener schnitzel (Bernhard Langer, 1986) The German was one of the first players to really personalize the champions dinner menu and he chose wiener schnitzel (breaded veal) and Black Forest cake, two popular foods in his native country.
-Haggis (Sandy Lyle, 1989) Lyle was so fired up about getting to host the champion’s dinner that he wore a kilt and served the Scottish specialty made of minced sheep organs.
Cheeseburgers, fries, milkshakes (Tiger Woods, 1998) It's not a coincidence that the youngest winner of the Masters chose something less fancy. "Hey, it's part of being young," Woods said. "It's what I eat." Woods Food tastes have we loved. He was the winner in 2019, and will be serving Sushi, Prime Steak and Chicken Fajitas at this years dinner.
-Elk and wild boar (Mike Weir, 2004) The only Canadian to win a major championship served plenty of big game from the Great White North. There was also fried chicken and filet mignon for the less adventurous. And a selection of Canadian beer, of course.
-Brisket and Ribs (Jordan Speith 2016) Of course he’s from Texas…
-Chicken Panang curry (Vijay Singh, 2001) Singh served a Thai-themed feast that also included seafood Tom Kha, Chilean sea bass with chili, and rack of lamb with yellow kari sauce. Singh reportedly had the chef make the spicy chili sauce milder than usual to better appeal to the other guests. Singh, from Fiji, contacted a local Thai restaurant about catering the meal, and they happily obliged. The chef flew in every ingredient from Thailand, including the flowers for each table. Old timers like Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer scoffed at the weird sounding food and went to the clubhouse to order cheeseburgers. Soon enough, word got back to them that the food was being absolutely devoured and decided to give it a try. Byron Nelson, considered one of the greatest golfers of all time, stood up, summoned the chef’s to the dining room, proclaimed it was the best “Champions Dinner” meal in 50 years and everyone gave the husband and wife chef duo a standing ovation.
What would you Champions Dinner consist of?

2020.10.31 02:11 Nathan-Don Fallout 3 Roleplay

Hey everyone, have been doing a Tale of Two Wastelands playthrough recently and have inadvertently had one of my best experiences with Fallout 3 of my many playthroughs and I wanted to share it here with you all. I always roleplay in Fallout games after my obligatory first playthrough following the more obviously set out path from the creators, but I always add a lot of extra elements to my character that exist only in my head, and naturally don't always fit in with how the game is written (except in New Vegas because its a role players dream) however I have been shocked to find this latest FO3 playthrough as one of my most enjoyable by only slightly tweaking the actual in game events.
Obviously spoilers will follow:
I will set my scene briefly below as we all know the beginning if the game and try to focus on my characters reactions to major events rather than rehashing game points we've all played a thousand times.
"My story begins with Sam (my character name) being born to Liam Neeson... I mean James in what I will later come to know as Vault 101. Sam is a good hearted kid, smart, mature for his age and quick to a joke. He spends most of his youth learning from his father and Jonas, becoming advanced in his learnings of science and medicine. He has an aptitude for mechanical and technical repair but his real gift is of the mouth, his charisma is evident from his years helping his good friend Amata learn about leadership and finding creative ways to fend off the local bullies in Butch and his tunnel snakes. If Sam has a weakness, it's that he is an emotional person, not lacking in logic by any means, but he tends to become invested in things he believes in and affected by the things happening around him.
Anyway events transpire that we all know about and Sam leaves the Vault in search for his father, who has mysteriously left. Sam is terrified of going outside, but knows that with his Father gone and Jonas dead, his life in the Vault can never be the same. The singular choice he makes on his way out, is to kill the Overseer in a moment of pure anger over killing his good friend Jonas and allowing Amata (who Sam is completely smitten over by his adult years) to be hurt, this is the first time Sam has ever even hurt another person, and he is completely taken aback at just how easy it is to kill a man with a baton to the head, he is shaken but focused on his task ahead. Amata is obviously none to pleased about this and is cold on Sam's departure, both believe this is the last time they will ever see each other. Sam leave the Vault shaken, deeply hurt at losing all the people he loves, and terrified of the world above. He does however have a task to complete and the mental fortitude to press on.

Sam's first stop in Megaton, totally taken aback by life in this wasteland not only carrying on, but settling into a societal structure throws almost everything he learnt in Vault 101 about the surface into doubt. Sam also quickly learns the truth about his birth, that he was in fact brought to the Vault after the fact, initially Sam waves off Moriarty as full of shit, but the feeling festers inside him that he always felt that his Father was preparing him for some kind of life he would never need to lead. The advanced education and scientific training that had little impact on Vault life, the BB gun and encouragement to practise with it, the focus on first aid and survival techniques in a Vault totally sealed off from danger.... Sam knows the truth, he just struggles to accept it. Luckily, he is able to almost immediately turn his mind to a matter of the brain, he gets to work disarming the unexploded atom bomb that the town is named for, it turns out the workings of the bomb or none to dissimilar to the Vault Reactor. Sam wants to help these people, but the reality of it is that he really worked on the bomb as a form of personal therapy.

Sam has an almost singular view to his questing from here, he engages in little side activity, only doing some early jobs for Moira and the like for enough money to afford some supplies and ammunition, he knows that his Father is out here in the wastes in danger. Sam slowly gets used to the idea of combat through this, killing bugs and mutated animals is easy enough, but its the people that Sam struggles with. He becomes somewhat adept at hiding and sneaking around as much as able, and tends to flee firefights rather than engage. through this all though Sam's upbringing is evident, he helps those he can and avoids conflict, he feels an obligation to do the right thing though his need to find his father stops him from stopping in one place for more than a day at a time. Sam manages to make it to GNR, repairs the radio dish on the Washington Monument with his repair knowledge and presses on to Rivet City. At this stage Sam has had to confront his deepest fears, Super Mutants are horrifying, but what really scares him are Feral Ghouls, he moves slowly through metro tunnels, clinging to the shotgun he found on a dead waster with dear life and praying they leave him alone.

Rivet City reminds Sam of home, there's a strange calm here that he hasn't experienced in the wastes yet and a weird familiarity he can't quite place. Sam eventually discovers the location on Project Purity and heads over. This is where Sam starts to really piece things together, this giant water purifier his parents had built takes him completely back, the scope of the work, the scientific complexity, it all makes sense now. Whether his father knew it or not, this is what he had been training Sam to work on, this idea of helping everyone in the wasteland is why Sam feels a strange obligation to help people when he can. Sam has no time to stop though, he has found his fathers holotape and is off to Dr Braun's Vault.
When Sam arrives in the simulation Dr Braun and his Father are in, his mind is blown, this is the 2nd new reality Sam has faced in little over a month, however to his dismay, it turns out Dr Braun is an evil man, torturing innocent people for hundreds of years, he decides to try to find a way to shut down the program and succeeds, ending the torture and saving his father. When they finally come face to face, Sam is overcome with anger, he berates his father for disappearing and though he understands his dads work, questions how he could lie like that for so many years. Eventually he escorts his father back to the purifier and helps him start to fix it until of course....

Enclave appear, killing James right in front of Sam. Sam has a genuine breakdown, he leads the group out of the purifier but not without stopping to murder every Enclave solider he can find on the way. they are tough with their heavy power armour but Sam is on a rampage, seeing red and absolutely running through anyone he finds (including those damn eyebots). Eventually they make it out of the tunnels and to the Citadel. Dr Li explains the situation to Elder Lyons but Sam is in shock, he wanders off in a blur and finds the Citadel bar. Its here he spends the next 2 days drinking himself silly, he listens to the Scribe about where to find the G.E.C.K but he's in no shape to go find it nor does he care. Eventually he gets into a tiff with Sarah Lyons after making an advance on her and leave's the Citadel. It's out here in the wastes that Sam loses all sense of himself, he goes form town to town looking for money and drink, he takes whatever job he can find and his morality takes a backseat (this is my neutral/evil side questing phase.) He massacres the vampires of Meresti, he steals Crowley's keys for his own benefit. There are glimmers of his old self, he helps settle Canterbury Commons for example without violence, but only because there's money in it for him and he doesn't want to devastate the child who watches them. The only constant, Sam murders every single Enclave solider he see's, he goes specifically out of his way to do so.

His low point comes when he stumbles across Paradise Falls, and agrees to find some slaves... He nabs the sniper form Minefield like a professional and gets let in... only to discover the kids in the pen. Riddled with guilt and disgust and what he's done, he frees the kids. Little Lamplight sounds familiar and brings up feelings from the past, so he washes them away with booze. Eventually Sam find his way to the free slaves looking to move to the Lincoln Memorial, angry at both himself and slavers, he decides to help them and slaughters the slavers at the memorial. This is the first time in a long time Sam has actually felt something, something good deep down in his stomach and he wonders about who he has become and where he belongs. Then he hears the distress signal from the Outcasts...

Sam heads to the Outcasts and finds himself agreeing to enter the Anchorage Simulation to help. He could never have expected what came next. (I took some liberty here to pretend this simulation takes significantly longer than it would, my Sam fights in Anchorage for near on 6 months in his mind.) The simulation is brutal, the wasteland is harsh, but nothing could have prepared Sam for full scale war, he learns how to actually handle a weapon, how to use military tactics and defeat enemies of significant combat skill. When he finally completes the simulation and emerges he is a changed man, hardened by the events he lived through but with a new found mental discipline he has never really had. The outcasts turn on each other and Sam struggles with being back in the wasteland, having been betrayed by the people he was trying to help yet again. So he hears Wernhers radio call and goes to The Pitt....

It is here that Sam learns what true hardship is, as he fights for the slaves he starts to realise that this world he lives in is filled with horror and that he doesn't need to contribute to it, that's not who he is, he decides when he gets back home to stop hurting and start trying to help, but not before making a truly harrowing choice in the Pitt. Sam ends up deciding to free the slaves, and just prays that Wernher doesn't harm the baby....

Venturing back to the Wasteland is where Sam starts to come back to himself, now a seasoned combat specialist, he starts earning a bit of a reputation as the Lone Wanderer (I do more good or helping side quests now) but he never goes back to the Citadel or Project Purity and avoids Rivet City except to trade. This is until he stumbles across Big Town.... He agrees to help and gets Red back and defends the town. It is here that he learns about Little Lamplight and it all comes together again, he feels it deep down in his stomach. Seeing how hard the residents of Big Town are living, he knows he needs to head to Lamplight, venture through the Vault and find the G.E.C.K. If he really wants to help people, he needs to continue his fathers work. So he heads off......

After traversing Little Lamplight where he is welcomed after freeing the slaves kids, he frees Fawkes gets the G.E.C.K and of course gets captured by the Enclave. Still angry at the Enclave, but more emotionally fortified and trained, he handles the Enclave situation with skill, tactically moving through the base before finding "President Eden." Sam wants nothing to do with him and scoffs at the idea of the modified FEV virus, he takes it out of necessity but never intendeds on using it.

Sam is now clear in his goal, he is a stronger version on himself for all his he been through and dealt with. While Sam suffered dark times and made choices he is not proud of, eventually he realised that he has the unique ability to actually improve the lives of every living person in the capital Wasteland, and that his father had set him up to make a real positive impact here. He heads back to the Citadel, enlists the Brotherhood and purifies the water in Tidal Basin for all...

After this I play through the other 3 DLC, all of which I now play with my new highly skilled and "good" character and motivations. After finishing Point Lookout, Sam realises that there's little left in the Capital Wasteland for him, he has accomplished his goal's, made his father proud and helped the people. He hears rumours from the Brotherhood that there is a society out West, something called the New California Republic and that there is a functional train in D.C that might be able to take him most of the way. With little left to stay for and a desire to see more of the world, Sam sets off........"

This is where I have gotten too, haven't decided exactly how Sam's story continues in New Vegas, but I am excited to keep playing. If you bothered to read this small essay, thank you very much I enjoyed writing it and have enjoyed this playthrough so very much. Like I said, its almost following the story set out anyway, I just twisted it to created a journey that I enjoyed and was able to get the most out of the existing writing with.

2020.10.28 19:52 Jason-In-Canterbury "Who Am I?"

There are many things in life that make me, me. And all of these reasons played a huge role in my decision to study abroad. Today I will be talking about each category, the special meaning behind it, and how it will impact my journey overseas.
Click here to view my "Who Am I?" diagram.
  1. Wanderlust. All my life, I have always seemed an adventure. I have always had a strong passion to see the world. As a full time student, there's not many opportunities out there for consistent travel. When I learned that I had the option of studying abroad, I knew I had to take up that offer.
  2. Free-Spirited. Because I'm so passionate with travel, I have already devoted my entire life to seeing the world. My therapist recognized this trait in me, and that makes me very happy because it shows that I know what my dreams and ambitions are. But how exactly will I pull this off? Well...
  3. Van Life. Yes, the van life. After I finish my semester abroad and I'm graduated from college, I plan to renovate the inside of a van or school bus and live out of it. I will travel across the entire country, taking on the great American road trip. I plan to hit every single national park along the way, and to visit every major tourist attraction. That way, a new adventure will be waiting for me every single day. The best part, is that I have no idea how my day will go. That's the beauty in being free-spirited.
  4. Independent. I know a lot of students express their concerns about being homesick, and are very hesitant on taking a semester abroad due to the fact that they'll miss home. Well, not me! I am ready as I'll ever be to get out of this place. There's a whole world out there, and some people are just gonna... not discover it?? Yeah, that's not for me. I want to see everything, and Canterbury, England will be a new addition to my list.
  5. Food. Taking a different approach on this list, one big thing I am ready to try around the world is food. What's amazing about food is that it varies based on where you are. And I know that England has some amazing food, so you can expect to see a bunch of food pictures on my Instagram. (Follow me on my journey!)
  6. Music. Music is also a wonderful thing that varies around the world. It's has always been a huge passion of mine. I've been a musician for almost ten years now, and I love listening to stories from my music instructors about their days teaching music abroad. And the great thing about studying abroad is that I plan to visit over five different countries while I'm there!
  7. YouTube and TikTok. If you did not know, I have a YouTube and TikTok page of over 130k followers. Vlogging has always been a part of what I do. Sure I may have taken a step back from it once I got to college, but they will be making a HUGE return when I go to England! What better place to start the vlogs back up again?! (If you want to follow me on my journey and see videos from my trip, subscribe to my YouTube channel and follow me on TikTok!)
  8. Student. Of course, this was going to be on the list. While I am taking a big trip overseas, I am doing this as a full-time student. Why, you ask? Because I know that my education is worth way more than just sitting in a desk all day. I knew that from a young age, I didn't want to learn in a classroom anymore. I wanted to be a wanderlust, free-spirited being that traveled the world, learning as I go. I would gain experience from meeting new people, seeing amazing sights, and documenting my personal growth in every second of it. I believe that THAT is how you be a student.

2020.10.28 08:48 chickentenders222 Can’t take breaks, regardless of if I’m medicated or not. [HELPS, ADVISE PLEASE]

I have very severe ADHD with a lot of comorbidities, I also have anisocoria above the brain damage threshold from assumed physical trauma, dyslexia and other things, long story short I have a lot of issues.
[You can skip this portion if you want, it’s kinda irrelevant] the neurologist that say me when I was 3 and 6 months old said it was most likely caused from pressure on the head during birth, it’s pretty unlikely to be the result of a stroke or infantile seizure, just due to a lack of symptoms suggesting it would be from that, so it’s basically safe to say it was physical trauma, the extent that this effects my ADHD etc. Is not really known, especially because it happened at birth and the rate of neurogenesis newborns have is crazy, ex. I have dyspraxia - a form in which I walk on my tippy toes subconsciously and sometimes have a “bounce” when I walk, some balance issues and stuff, but the thing is, the type of dyspraxia I have resembles that of a few types of Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD), and I’m predisposed to ASD because it runs in my family, primarily Asperger’s, but just to explain real quick no neurologist thinks I suffer from any ASD, but my my dyspraxia does not resemble that of brain damage in the way it would if I got into a car accident today, even minor TBI induced coordination problems, have some telltale symptoms, but due to the fact that I’m not Autistic, it’s assumed to be from my brain damage and just the insane rate of neurogenesis had essentially repaired my brain enough that my dyspraxia resembles that of ASD conditions, and not of a traumatic brain injury which is believed to be the cause, but once again, this is not 100% confirmed, so just to give you an idea of IDK how much it influences things, although I for sure do have very severe ADHD, I had an extensive diagnosis.
The problem I’m really having here, is that I’m unable to take breaks, like ever.
Unmedicated - Well I don’t ever really get to doing any work at all, like ever for the most part so I take “Breaks” that last forever before even getting started.
Medicated - I can slowly get myself to start my work, I get a few things done, tend to overcomplicate things though and put too much effort into assignments that don’t matter, Problem being, is that, When I get a few things accomplished, I go to take a well-earned break, the problem begins here. There’s a: 75% the break lasts like 3-9 hours
25% I exhibit some form of self control The weird thing is, is that, I feel way more self control on medication, but less than I used, as before I would be able to tell time without thinking, didn’t have to make lists, my brain just did my work on medication easily and efficiently, I didn’t feel the need for breaks really or an impulse to play a game or watch videos, but if I did, I did it in a controlled manner and I did this without effort, but these effects of the medication have vanished or at least diminished a lot. but even the extra boost of self conrol my meds still give me, paradoxically backfires on me, because if I do take a break,
1- it’s far too long, but ironically not as bad as naturally induced hyper-focused I get [hyper-focus from my stimulant medication typically doesn’t last as long as it does when it happens sober, sometimes it does last as long but that’s not the usual, completely sober, if I hype focus on something a video game, school project, book etc. it can be easily 16-26 hours, and it occurs completely on accident, it’s pretty intense when it occurs naturally]
2- the feeling of self control paradoxically perpetuates a lack of self control, I’m not used to feeling the self control from medication naturally, so if I’m doing a a game on medication, I can tell myself “one more, i’m medicated” because I feel like I can just stop at anytime and i’m mostly aware of what i’m doing, compared to unmedicated, and I’m not like subconsciously aware of what i’m doing, I’m just doing it, there is no “one more”, it just happens, and happens, once it ends, is when I realize
3- sometimes anxiety perpetuates it through procrastination, but this isn’t a primary cause. Sometimes when I’m anxious that I took too long of a break, or have too much to do, The anxiety and like angeself loathe, causes me to greatly intensify whatever distraction to a beyond addicted way, whatever the hell it is. And any interception of what i’m doing, I either lie or just get pissed off and aggressive about it, and even if I’m aware it like won’t stop if I’m anxious. Like if I haven’t gotten a single thing done yet, but I’m playing a game, and I realize instead of 15 minutes it’s been 2.5 hours, and then my mom asks me what I got done, I’ll just lie about it, which is very unlike me, but when I do that, instead of stopping what I’m doing to go accomplish things, I do it 10x harder to run away from it.
4-Taking no breaks once I’ve started working, ends up causing me to spend 10x longer on a project for absolutely no reason except an emotional attachment to perfect. Ex. Recently I had to do a project on Chaucer’s “Canterbury Tales”, most people had a presentation that was like 7-15ish slides long. I wasn’t even done mine, and it was about 117 slides, when I was able to let go of the compulsion, I deleted enough slides to where I’m at about low 50’s and I’m just gonna record that. As you could imagine, this causes burnout. And if I took breaks, I could probably efficiently accomplish more work and work for longer overall, than doing everything in 1 go Also because this causes me to forget to hydrate, eat etc. Thing is, this seems to be the only method of me doing anything, because it’s not like a 75% chance for the day, it’s every single time, I can fall off the wagon at any moment, so if I do work, take a break in moderation, do some more work, then take a 2nd break the a 75% each time it goes south, same if I take a 2nd break in moderation, then work, then the 3rd break is once again a 75% chance of shit hitting the fan.
I feel like if I used timers, it would just be like someone interrupting me and there’s a solid chance it would exacerbate the behavior, or I would just dismiss it under the guise of feeling like I have self control, and the problem with the self control feeling, is that it has merit, there’s been enough times where I’ve said “okay one more then i’m doing xyz” while medication, and I only do one more, then I go xyz so it’s not like I’m just blatantly lying to myself or in denial, it’s just this isn’t the way it consistently goes.
I’m really at a loss right now how to handle this problem, it’s been there for a long time, there was once a time where I medicated, and was just effortlessly insanely productive, through many things this has gone and some of the hoops & obstacles of ADHD have resurrected themselves back into my path, honestly kinda wish I could go back to effortlessly doing everything, but right now I need ways to get through these hoops, I appreciate any suggestions.
Also, even though I said I don’t think timers will work, i’m open to all suggestions tho, but it’s also worth mentioning I have OCD with somethings, and some really small or novel tweaks can turn a behavioral coping intervention from something that’s utterly useless, to something that produces a surprising benefit for a behavioral intervention. An ex. would be, I am more likely to listen to my own instructions if whilst written on a sticky note if they are written in sharpie, and if I take my time for better penmanship, than if I wrote it in pencil, or pen, sometimes even the color of the sticky not.
I’m more likely to sometimes complete an assignment, or even start it, depending on the pencil I have on men, like sometimes even the led, the size and everything will effect if I do that assignment etc.
The format and spacing and font, can be the determining factor of whether I actually read an assignment or not, - This is probably due to dyslexia tbh
Honestly any advise for any part of what I just wrote down, is deeply appreciated, thank you in advance!
TL:DR - I'm not good a summaries, but essentially, whlie on medication, a majority of the time, if I try to take a break after doing work, the break ends up lasting hours, if I don't take a break, I tend to overcomplicate 1 assignment endlessly, or I burn out.

2020.10.24 17:05 Bluebottle__ [TOMT] [Cartoon] [1990s] an anthology series of animated fairy tales from around the world aimed at children on Australian TV network SBS

so this was a whole series i remember watching as a kid, each episode had a different animation style than the one before it. some of them were in 2d animation, some of them seemed to be stop motion. there is only one episode in particular i can remember sorta well because it was my favourite. the basic premise of this fairy tale was that a girl lived with her old sick dad and she loves painting and birds. it opens with her singing what i believe to be the following words: "i wish i were a blackbird, just fly around and sing (...) away i'd fly, high up in the sky, on the wings of the wind".
three brothers live near the girl and her dad and they all want to marry her. the two older brothers are assholes and one of them is chubby. the youngest brother is a nice lad and he likes to carve, so he carves a windmill (or a bird) for the girl and brings a gift for the dad as well i think, but his fat brother steals the carving and gives it to the girl and pretends he made it, while the other brother steals the gift for the dad. the dad tells the brothers that he'll only let his daughter marry whichever boy brings him a golden apple from a single tree on an island in the middle of a nearby lake, which many years earlier old dad had done to marry his deceased wife, pretty's girl's mum
the two older brothers fail in various ways, one of them tries to row over and i think the other might just try and swim? however the youngest brother is idk blessed by luck or something and the lake freezes and he's able to skate on over and just take an apple. there's another musical number during this whole skating thing, unfortunately i remember nothing about it. and at some point the girl looks at the bottom of the windmill/bird carving and sees the youngest brothers initials.
now i'm not 100% sure, but i believe that other cartoon episodes i kinda remember were from this same show. one of them involved an animated version of the wife of bath's tale. upon further digging i have determined that this is in fact from a completely different animated series about the canterbury tales, which does not appear to include any of these other stories the second i vaguely recall involved a boy going on an adventure and falling in love with some fae or elf girl, and the girl tells him he can't allow anyone to kiss him when he returns home or he'll forget her. he gets home and tells his mum not to kiss him, but then his dog comes up and licks his face, which counts as a kiss i guess. personally i would call it gross. i've looked up some fairy tales involving forgotten lovers or fiancees but none of them seem to be the same as this one.

JOHN, by the grace of God King of England, Lord of Ireland, Duke of Normandy and Aquitaine, and Count of Anjou, to his archbishops, bishops, abbots, earls, barons, justices, foresters, sheriffs, stewards, servants, and to all his officials and loyal subjects, Greeting.
KNOW THAT BEFORE GOD, for the health of our soul and those of our ancestors and heirs, to the honour of God, the exaltation of the holy Church, and the better ordering of our kingdom, at the advice of our reverend fathers Stephen, archbishop of Canterbury, primate of all England, and cardinal of the holy Roman Church, Henry archbishop of Dublin, William bishop of London, Peter bishop of Winchester, Jocelin bishop of Bath and Glastonbury, Hugh bishop of Lincoln, Walter bishop of Worcester, William bishop of Coventry, Benedict bishop of Rochester, Master Pandulf subdeacon and member of the papal household, Brother Aymeric master of the knighthood of the Temple in England, William Marshal earl of Pembroke, William earl of Salisbury, William earl of Warren, William earl of Arundel, Alan of Galloway constable of Scotland, Warin fitz Gerald, Peter fitz Herbert, Hubert de Burgh seneschal of Poitou, Hugh de Neville, Matthew fitz Herbert, Thomas Basset, Alan Basset, Philip Daubeny, Robert de Roppeley, John Marshal, John fitz Hugh, and other loyal subjects:
(1) FIRST, THAT WE HAVE GRANTED TO GOD, and by this present charter have confirmed for us and our heirs in perpetuity, that the English Church shall be free, and shall have its rights undiminished, and its liberties unimpaired. That we wish this so to be observed, appears from the fact that of our own free will, before the outbreak of the present dispute between us and our barons, we granted and confirmed by charter the freedom of the Church's elections - a right reckoned to be of the greatest necessity and importance to it - and caused this to be confirmed by Pope Innocent III. This freedom we shall observe ourselves, and desire to be observed in good faith by our heirs in perpetuity.
TO ALL FREE MEN OF OUR KINGDOM we have also granted, for us and our heirs for ever, all the liberties written out below, to have and to keep for them and their heirs, of us and our heirs:
(2) If any earl, baron, or other person that holds lands directly of the Crown, for military service, shall die, and at his death his heir shall be of full age and owe a 'relief', the heir shall have his inheritance on payment of the ancient scale of 'relief'. That is to say, the heir or heirs of an earl shall pay £100 for the entire earl's barony, the heir or heirs of a knight 100s. at most for the entire knight's 'fee', and any man that owes less shall pay less, in accordance with the ancient usage of 'fees'.
(3) But if the heir of such a person is under age and a ward, when he comes of age he shall have his inheritance without 'relief' or fine.
(4) The guardian of the land of an heir who is under age shall take from it only reasonable revenues, customary dues, and feudal services. He shall do this without destruction or damage to men or property. If we have given the guardianship of the land to a sheriff, or to any person answerable to us for the revenues, and he commits destruction or damage, we will exact compensation from him, and the land shall be entrusted to two worthy and prudent men of the same 'fee', who shall be answerable to us for the revenues, or to the person to whom we have assigned them. If we have given or sold to anyone the guardianship of such land, and he causes destruction or damage, he shall lose the guardianship of it, and it shall be handed over to two worthy and prudent men of the same 'fee', who shall be similarly answerable to us.
(5) For so long as a guardian has guardianship of such land, he shall maintain the houses, parks, fish preserves, ponds, mills, and everything else pertaining to it, from the revenues of the land itself. When the heir comes of age, he shall restore the whole land to him, stocked with plough teams and such implements of husbandry as the season demands and the revenues from the land can reasonably bear.
(6) Heirs may be given in marriage, but not to someone of lower social standing. Before a marriage takes place, it shall be made known to the heir's next-of-kin.
(7) At her husband's death, a widow may have her marriage portion and inheritance at once and without trouble. She shall pay nothing for her dower, marriage portion, or any inheritance that she and her husband held jointly on the day of his death. She may remain in her husband's house for forty days after his death, and within this period her dower shall be assigned to her.
(8) No widow shall be compelled to marry, so long as she wishes to remain without a husband. But she must give security that she will not marry without royal consent, if she holds her lands of the Crown, or without the consent of whatever other lord she may hold them of.
(9) Neither we nor our officials will seize any land or rent in payment of a debt, so long as the debtor has movable goods sufficient to discharge the debt. A debtor's sureties shall not be distrained upon so long as the debtor himself can discharge his debt. If, for lack of means, the debtor is unable to discharge his debt, his sureties shall be answerable for it. If they so desire, they may have the debtor's lands and rents until they have received satisfaction for the debt that they paid for him, unless the debtor can show that he has settled his obligations to them.
(10) If anyone who has borrowed a sum of money from Jews dies before the debt has been repaid, his heir shall pay no interest on the debt for so long as he remains under age, irrespective of whom he holds his lands. If such a debt falls into the hands of the Crown, it will take nothing except the principal sum specified in the bond.
(11) If a man dies owing money to Jews, his wife may have her dower and pay nothing towards the debt from it. If he leaves children that are under age, their needs may also be provided for on a scale appropriate to the size of his holding of lands. The debt is to be paid out of the residue, reserving the service due to his feudal lords. Debts owed to persons other than Jews are to be dealt with similarly.
(12) No 'scutage' or 'aid' may be levied in our kingdom without its general consent, unless it is for the ransom of our person, to make our eldest son a knight, and (once) to marry our eldest daughter. For these purposes only a reasonable 'aid' may be levied. 'Aids' from the city of London are to be treated similarly.
(13) The city of London shall enjoy all its ancient liberties and free customs, both by land and by water. We also will and grant that all other cities, boroughs, towns, and ports shall enjoy all their liberties and free customs.
(14) To obtain the general consent of the realm for the assessment of an 'aid' - except in the three cases specified above - or a 'scutage', we will cause the archbishops, bishops, abbots, earls, and greater barons to be summoned individually by letter. To those who hold lands directly of us we will cause a general summons to be issued, through the sheriffs and other officials, to come together on a fixed day (of which at least forty days notice shall be given) and at a fixed place. In all letters of summons, the cause of the summons will be stated. When a summons has been issued, the business appointed for the day shall go forward in accordance with the resolution of those present, even if not all those who were summoned have appeared.
(15) In future we will allow no one to levy an 'aid' from his free men, except to ransom his person, to make his eldest son a knight, and (once) to marry his eldest daughter. For these purposes only a reasonable 'aid' may be levied.
(16) No man shall be forced to perform more service for a knight's 'fee', or other free holding of land, than is due from it.
(17) Ordinary lawsuits shall not follow the royal court around, but shall be held in a fixed place.
(18) Inquests of novel disseisin, mort d'ancestor, and darrein presentment shall be taken only in their proper county court. We ourselves, or in our absence abroad our chief justice, will send two justices to each county four times a year, and these justices, with four knights of the county elected by the county itself, shall hold the assizes in the county court, on the day and in the place where the court meets.
(19) If any assizes cannot be taken on the day of the county court, as many knights and freeholders shall afterwards remain behind, of those who have attended the court, as will suffice for the administration of justice, having regard to the volume of business to be done.
(20) For a trivial offence, a free man shall be fined only in proportion to the degree of his offence, and for a serious offence correspondingly, but not so heavily as to deprive him of his livelihood. In the same way, a merchant shall be spared his merchandise, and a villein the implements of his husbandry, if they fall upon the mercy of a royal court. None of these fines shall be imposed except by the assessment on oath of reputable men of the neighbourhood.
(21) Earls and barons shall be fined only by their equals, and in proportion to the gravity of their offence.
(22) A fine imposed upon the lay property of a clerk in holy orders shall be assessed upon the same principles, without reference to the value of his ecclesiastical benefice.
(23) No town or person shall be forced to build bridges over rivers except those with an ancient obligation to do so.
(24) No sheriff, constable, coroners, or other royal officials are to hold lawsuits that should be held by the royal justices.
(25) Every county, hundred, wapentake, and tithing shall remain at its ancient rent, without increase, except the royal demesne manors.
(26) If at the death of a man who holds a lay 'fee' of the Crown, a sheriff or royal official produces royal letters patent of summons for a debt due to the Crown, it shall be lawful for them to seize and list movable goods found in the lay 'fee' of the dead man to the value of the debt, as assessed by worthy men. Nothing shall be removed until the whole debt is paid, when the residue shall be given over to the executors to carry out the dead man’s will. If no debt is due to the Crown, all the movable goods shall be regarded as the property of the dead man, except the reasonable shares of his wife and children.
(27) If a free man dies intestate, his movable goods are to be distributed by his next-of-kin and friends, under the supervision of the Church. The rights of his debtors are to be preserved.
(28) No constable or other royal official shall take corn or other movable goods from any man without immediate payment, unless the seller voluntarily offers postponement of this.
(29) No constable may compel a knight to pay money for castle-guard if the knight is willing to undertake the guard in person, or with reasonable excuse to supply some other fit man to do it. A knight taken or sent on military service shall be excused from castle-guard for the period of this service.
(30) No sheriff, royal official, or other person shall take horses or carts for transport from any free man, without his consent.
(31) Neither we nor any royal official will take wood for our castle, or for any other purpose, without the consent of the owner.
(32) We will not keep the lands of people convicted of felony in our hand for longer than a year and a day, after which they shall be returned to the lords of the 'fees' concerned.
(33) All fish-weirs shall be removed from the Thames, the Medway, and throughout the whole of England, except on the sea coast.
(34) The writ called precipe shall not in future be issued to anyone in respect of any holding of land, if a free man could thereby be deprived of the right of trial in his own lord's court.
(35) There shall be standard measures of wine, ale, and corn (the London quarter), throughout the kingdom. There shall also be a standard width of dyed cloth, russet, and haberject, namely two ells within the selvedges. Weights are to be standardised similarly.
(36) In future nothing shall be paid or accepted for the issue of a writ of inquisition of life or limbs. It shall be given gratis, and not refused.
(37) If a man holds land of the Crown by 'fee-farm', 'socage', or 'burgage', and also holds land of someone else for knight's service, we will not have guardianship of his heir, nor of the land that belongs to the other person's 'fee', by virtue of the 'fee-farm', 'socage', or 'burgage', unless the 'fee-farm' owes knight's service. We will not have the guardianship of a man's heir, or of land that he holds of someone else, by reason of any small property that he may hold of the Crown for a service of knives, arrows, or the like.
(38) In future no official shall place a man on trial upon his own unsupported statement, without producing credible witnesses to the truth of it.
(39) No free man shall be seized or imprisoned, or stripped of his rights or possessions, or outlawed or exiled, or deprived of his standing in any way, nor will we proceed with force against him, or send others to do so, except by the lawful judgment of his equals or by the law of the land.
(40) To no one will we sell, to no one deny or delay right or justice.
(41) All merchants may enter or leave England unharmed and without fear, and may stay or travel within it, by land or water, for purposes of trade, free from all illegal exactions, in accordance with ancient and lawful customs. This, however, does not apply in time of war to merchants from a country that is at war with us. Any such merchants found in our country at the outbreak of war shall be detained without injury to their persons or property, until we or our chief justice have discovered how our own merchants are being treated in the country at war with us. If our own merchants are safe they shall be safe too.
(42) In future it shall be lawful for any man to leave and return to our kingdom unharmed and without fear, by land or water, preserving his allegiance to us, except in time of war, for some short period, for the common benefit of the realm. People that have been imprisoned or outlawed in accordance with the law of the land, people from a country that is at war with us, and merchants - who shall be dealt with as stated above - are excepted from this provision.
(43) If a man holds lands of any 'escheat' such as the 'honour' of Wallingford, Nottingham, Boulogne, Lancaster, or of other 'escheats' in our hand that are baronies, at his death his heir shall give us only the 'relief' and service that he would have made to the baron, had the barony been in the baron's hand. We will hold the 'escheat' in the same manner as the baron held it.
(44) People who live outside the forest need not in future appear before the royal justices of the forest in answer to general summonses, unless they are actually involved in proceedings or are sureties for someone who has been seized for a forest offence.
(45) We will appoint as justices, constables, sheriffs, or other officials, only men that know the law of the realm and are minded to keep it well.
(46) All barons who have founded abbeys, and have charters of English kings or ancient tenure as evidence of this, may have guardianship of them when there is no abbot, as is their due.
(47) All forests that have been created in our reign shall at once be disafforested. River-banks that have been enclosed in our reign shall be treated similarly.
(48) All evil customs relating to forests and warrens, foresters, warreners, sheriffs and their servants, or river-banks and their wardens, are at once to be investigated in every county by twelve sworn knights of the county, and within forty days of their enquiry the evil customs are to be abolished completely and irrevocably. But we, or our chief justice if we are not in England, are first to be informed.
(49) We will at once return all hostages and charters delivered up to us by Englishmen as security for peace or for loyal service.
(50) We will remove completely from their offices the kinsmen of Gerard de Athée, and in future they shall hold no offices in England. The people in question are Engelard de Cigogné, Peter, Guy, and Andrew de Chanceaux, Guy de Cigogné, Geoffrey de Martigny and his brothers, Philip Marc and his brothers, with Geoffrey his nephew, and all their followers.
(51) As soon as peace is restored, we will remove from the kingdom all the foreign knights, bowmen, their attendants, and the mercenaries that have come to it, to its harm, with horses and arms.
(52) To any man whom we have deprived or dispossessed of lands, castles, liberties, or rights, without the lawful judgment of his equals, we will at once restore these. In cases of dispute the matter shall be resolved by the judgment of the twenty-five barons referred to below in the clause for securing the peace (§61). In cases, however, where a man was deprived or dispossessed of something without the lawful judgment of his equals by our father King Henry or our brother King Richard, and it remains in our hands or is held by others under our warranty, we shall have respite for the period commonly allowed to Crusaders, unless a lawsuit had been begun, or an enquiry had been made at our order, before we took the Cross as a Crusader. On our return from the Crusade, or if we abandon it, we will at once render justice in full.
(53) We shall have similar respite in rendering justice in connexion with forests that are to be disafforested, or to remain forests, when these were first afforested by our father Henry or our brother Richard; with the guardianship of lands in another person's 'fee', when we have hitherto had this by virtue of a 'fee' held of us for knight's service by a third party; and with abbeys founded in another person's 'fee', in which the lord of the 'fee' claims to own a right. On our return from the Crusade, or if we abandon it, we will at once do full justice to complaints about these matters.
(54) No one shall be arrested or imprisoned on the appeal of a woman for the death of any person except her husband.
(55) All fines that have been given to us unjustly and against the law of the land, and all fines that we have exacted unjustly, shall be entirely remitted or the matter decided by a majority judgment of the twenty-five barons referred to below in the clause for securing the peace (§61) together with Stephen, archbishop of Canterbury, if he can be present, and such others as he wishes to bring with him. If the archbishop cannot be present, proceedings shall continue without him, provided that if any of the twenty-five barons has been involved in a similar suit himself, his judgment shall be set aside, and someone else chosen and sworn in his place, as a substitute for the single occasion, by the rest of the twenty-five.
(56) If we have deprived or dispossessed any Welshmen of land, liberties, or anything else in England or in Wales, without the lawful judgment of their equals, these are at once to be returned to them. A dispute on this point shall be determined in the Marches by the judgment of equals. English law shall apply to holdings of land in England, Welsh law to those in Wales, and the law of the Marches to those in the Marches. The Welsh shall treat us and ours in the same way.
(57) In cases where a Welshman was deprived or dispossessed of anything, without the lawful judgment of his equals, by our father King Henry or our brother King Richard, and it remains in our hands or is held by others under our warranty, we shall have respite for the period commonly allowed to Crusaders, unless a lawsuit had been begun, or an enquiry had been made at our order, before we took the Cross as a Crusader. But on our return from the Crusade, or if we abandon it, we will at once do full justice according to the laws of Wales and the said regions.
(58) We will at once return the son of Llywelyn, all Welsh hostages, and the charters delivered to us as security for the peace.
(59) With regard to the return of the sisters and hostages of Alexander, king of Scotland, his liberties and his rights, we will treat him in the same way as our other barons of England, unless it appears from the charters that we hold from his father William, formerly king of Scotland, that he should be treated otherwise. This matter shall be resolved by the judgment of his equals in our court.
(60) All these customs and liberties that we have granted shall be observed in our kingdom in so far as concerns our own relations with our subjects. Let all men of our kingdom, whether clergy or laymen, observe them similarly in their relations with their own men.
(61) SINCE WE HAVE GRANTED ALL THESE THINGS for God, for the better ordering of our kingdom, and to allay the discord that has arisen between us and our barons, and since we desire that they shall be enjoyed in their entirety, with lasting strength, for ever, we give and grant to the barons the following security:
The barons shall elect twenty-five of their number to keep, and cause to be observed with all their might, the peace and liberties granted and confirmed to them by this charter.
If we, our chief justice, our officials, or any of our servants offend in any respect against any man, or transgress any of the articles of the peace or of this security, and the offence is made known to four of the said twenty-five barons, they shall come to us – or in our absence from the kingdom to the chief justice – to declare it and claim immediate redress. If we, or in our absence abroad the chief justice, make no redress within forty days, reckoning from the day on which the offence was declared to us or to him, the four barons shall refer the matter to the rest of the twenty-five barons, who may distrain upon and assail us in every way possible, with the support of the whole community of the land, by seizing our castles, lands, possessions, or anything else saving only our own person and those of the queen and our children, until they have secured such redress as they have determined upon. Having secured the redress, they may then resume their normal obedience to us.
Any man who so desires may take an oath to obey the commands of the twenty-five barons for the achievement of these ends, and to join with them in assailing us to the utmost of his power. We give public and free permission to take this oath to any man who so desires, and at no time will we prohibit any man from taking it. Indeed, we will compel any of our subjects who are unwilling to take it to swear it at our command.
If one of the twenty-five barons dies or leaves the country, or is prevented in any other way from discharging his duties, the rest of them shall choose another baron in his place, at their discretion, who shall be duly sworn in as they were.
In the event of disagreement among the twenty-five barons on any matter referred to them for decision, the verdict of the majority present shall have the same validity as a unanimous verdict of the whole twenty-five, whether these were all present or some of those summoned were unwilling or unable to appear.
The twenty-five barons shall swear to obey all the above articles faithfully, and shall cause them to be obeyed by others to the best of their power.
We will not seek to procure from anyone, either by our own efforts or those of a third party, anything by which any part of these concessions or liberties might be revoked or diminished. Should such a thing be procured, it shall be null and void and we will at no time make use of it, either ourselves or through a third party.
(62) We have remitted and pardoned fully to all men any ill-will, hurt, or grudges that have arisen between us and our subjects, whether clergy or laymen, since the beginning of the dispute. We have in addition remitted fully, and for our own part have also pardoned, to all clergy and laymen any offences committed as a result of the said dispute between Easter in the sixteenth year of our reign (i.e. 1215) and the restoration of peace.
In addition we have caused letters patent to be made for the barons, bearing witness to this security and to the concessions set out above, over the seals of Stephen archbishop of Canterbury, Henry archbishop of Dublin, the other bishops named above, and Master Pandulf.
(63) IT IS ACCORDINGLY OUR WISH AND COMMAND that the English Church shall be free, and that men in our kingdom shall have and keep all these liberties, rights, and concessions, well and peaceably in their fullness and entirety for them and their heirs, of us and our heirs, in all things and all places for ever.
Both we and the barons have sworn that all this shall be observed in good faith and without deceit. Witness the abovementioned people and many others.
Given by our hand in the meadow that is called Runnymede, between Windsor and Staines, on the fifteenth day of June in the seventeenth year of our reign (i.e. 1215: the new regnal year began on 28 May).

2020.10.17 20:56 etosamoe1 Why the Church's Teachings on the Atonement Are Screwed Up

TL;DR: The church bases teaches a theory of atonement that reduces the entire relationship between God and Humanity to a legal/business transaction.
Hey everyone, I’ve been a long-time lurker on this sub, but this is my first post. I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the LDS teachings on the atonement, and I hope this post will help you all make some sense of things.
The LDS church, like almost all evangelical/fundamentalist churches, almost exclusively teaches the Penal Substitution Atonement theory (PSA), which is most often repeated as “Christ died for your sins” or “Christ’s atonement satisfies the demands of justice”. I bet this is bringing back bad memories from 2 Nephi or Alma, but bear with me for a second.
What most people don’t realize is that PSA is not the only Christian theory of atonement, nor is it even close to being the earliest. PSA didn’t even come into existence until the 12th century when Anselm of Canterbury put forth Satisfaction theory, which posited that Christ died in order to pay back the injustice of human sin. This was later modified by the reformers to create a more formal legal framework where Christ accepts the punishment of a wrathful God in place of the person who has sinned, thus balancing the accounts between God and Humanity. This reduction of the death of Christ to a purely legal formulation should not be overly surprising, since two of the most influential reformers, John Calvin and Martin Luther, both studied law (John Calvin was a practicing lawyer, and Luther studied law for a time before dropping out and studying theology and philosophy. The fact that the vast majority of the Q15 through modern history have been lawyers or businessmen has certainly done nothing to break away from PSA).
So for its single most important, foundational teaching the church has adopted a theory of atonement that is entirely transactional and is every bit as miraculous as an ordinary business contract. The implications of that are huge! You have to pay tithing because tithing = blessings from God. You have to fast because if you give up food for a day, God will make the plague go away. It also lays the groundwork for the church’s Prosperity Theology teachings, because if you’re wealthy clearly you’ve done the things you need to please the great lawyer in the sky.
I hope this can help someone unpack how fundamentally screwed up the church’s foundational teachings are. For those interested, there are several other theories of atonement that are worth looking into, and I’ve included a link below to a good overview of the predominant ones. Personally, I subscribe to the Christus Victor theory, which posits that Christ died to defeat the forces of sin, death, and evil to free humanity from bondage. No one is “paid off” through the crucifixion, rather it’s an act of love setting us free.
Interestingly, the Orthodox church has always rejected PSA as heretical, and the Catholic church has never fully accepted it. It is almost entirely a product of the Reformation, and a late one at that. I’ve included a link below to an article by an Orthodox monk on why they view it as heretical.
Let me know if you have other thoughts on how PSA has permeated church thought or practice!

A contemporary take on PSA: https://www.patheos.com/blogs/christianityischanging/2015/01/penal-substitution-is-dying-thank-god/
I also recommend the Instagram account yourfavoriteheretics – they have a lot of great content on faith deconstruction and were a major reason why I started thinking about this.

2020.10.17 01:53 tb640301 Question about the new releases

Hey all! I have some questions about the new releases, if anyone can share any insight. I much prefer vinyl, and I see that Early Joni (1963) and Live at Canterbury are both getting vinyl releases. But the CD set is 5 cds, which would seem to mean that it has more music than the two vinyl releases. I don't really have any interest in cd, unless it has music that isn't on the vinyl releases. Anyone know for sure? Also, does anyone know if it will get a streaming/Spotify release? All the singles so far have hit Spotify, so it seems like it, but if not, I might be inclined to spring for both the CDs and the vinyl, if there's music on the cds we can't get anywhere else, including the vinyl. These come out the day before my birthday, so it will be a nice gift for myself :-) Anyone have any insight? Thanks!

Psychedelic Bible - The discovery of a lifetime -

One of twelve panels in the Psalter, illustrating Biblical scenes with psychoactive mushrooms
In November 2006, shortly after the publication of my book Not in His Image, where I describe entheogenic rites in the pagan Mysteries at Eleusis and elsewhere, I made a long-awaited visit to the National Library in Paris.
Upon acquiring a membership card I was able to consult the archives for Greek and Latin manuscripts, of which the BNF (Bibliotheque National de France) has an impressive collection.
I was in quest of a very particular item, Latin MS 8846, the Paris Eadwine Psalter. This is the single and unique illuminated MS of the 12th century, the only one of its kind in the world.
I was not able to handle the actual MS, but I examined the color microfilm made from it. My session of three hours in the microfilm booth left me with wide eyes, a slack jaw, and unsteady feet. I literally staggered out into the Rue de Richelieu.
For rest of the evening I remained in state of astonishment, totally stunned by the images I had seen rolling across the microfilm screen.
Psychedelic Bible
The Paris Eadwine Psalter is an oversize bound book of about 184 sheets, about 367 pages counting both sides.
The cover page is stamped Volume No. 174, 10 October 1873, presumably the day it was acquired or catalogued. It opens with five full-page panels divided into twelve sections, lavishly colored and detailed.
The panels show incidents from the Old Testament, running from the creation of Adam and Eve to the life of the Patriarch Jacob. There immediately follow many half-page and full-page illustrations of the Psalms interspersed with Latin commentary. After about 100 pages come four more twelve-section panels resuming the story of Jacob, then the illustrations jump to the Ark of the Covenant, David and Goliath, and John the Baptist.
About 45 pages further on there is a unique page composed of eighteen panels celebrating Jesus Christ, followed by two more twelve-panel pages illustrating events in the life of the Savior.
All this is totally Biblical narrative, larded with pious commentary and directions for song and prayer. The Eadwine MS is after all a psalter, intended for use by a choir or congregation in reciting prayers.
What is far from routine, however, is the way the book is illustrated.
Blue-staining mushrooms and mushroom-like omphali occur in lavish form in the first 100 pages. Dozens of pages display versions of a stylized tree with a blue trunk, depicting how psychoactive mushrooms grow from the trunk of a single "fruiting body" that sprouts from the mycelium.
Often the mushroom trees are integrated into dramatic scenes showing humans interacting with angels and demons.

Some elaborate scenes depict Apocalyptic events with the figure of Christ often placed next to a huge mushroom cluster.
The intertwining stems of the fungi, realistically shown as slender and curvaceous, just as they appear in the wild, are artistically woven in the Celtic style of the Book of Kells and other Irish illuminated manuscripts from the same era.
In many scenes (see below), a naturalistic mushroom nestles among ornate omphalos-buds that recall the segmentation of raspberries and blackberries, yet these latter forms are clearly not naturalistic.
They are carefully painted ovals or egg-shapes, distinct from the slender pin-headed mushrooms without segmented heads. Clearly, the artist knew the difference between stylistic and naturalistic representation and quite intentionally chose to juxtapose the two.
I suggest that the omphalos-bud was an artistic convention of the Mysteries intended to indicate how molecular structure looks in the visionary trance induced by psychoactive plants.

There is considerable confusion about the naming of Latin MS 8846, called the Anglo-Catalan Psalter.
Because it was made in Canterbury, England, around 1180 CE, it is sometimes called the Canterbury Psalter. It was left unfinished and taken to Spain for completion, hence the odd name Anglo-Catalan.
At the time of its construction, another, nearly identical psalter was produced in Canterbury:
MS R 17.1 (987), kept at Trinity College, Cambridge, England. Both psalters are attributed to the master scribe named Eadwine ("generous friend"), and both contain the same sequence of narrative events, but the Canterbury psalter MS R 17.1 displays none of the entheogenic imagery of BNF Latin MS 8846, the Paris Eadwine Psalter.
In 1935 M.R. James published a reduced facsimile of the Cambridge MS.
More recently, in 1992, it has been published as The Eadwine Psalter by the Modern Humanities Research Association of Pennsylvania State University in the USA. This book can be ordered on Amazon.com for a heady price. Disappointingly, it shows that the Cambridge MS is totally devoid of psychoactive mushroom imagery.
In a chapter of the 1992 facsimile book, religious scholar Patricia Stirneman discusses the relationship of Latin MS 8846 to its Canterbury counterpart.
Amazingly, she does not allude in any way to the lavish mycological imagery of the Paris MS; nor does she explain how two manuscripts produced from the same source at the same time could be so utterly different in visual presentation.
To scholars, the presence of psychoactive mushrooms in religious art is a closed subject, a revelation too outrageous to admit; but for this self-taught scholar it was the discovery of a lifetime.
Intentional Blindness
In 2002 the Spanish publishing house Moleiro published an exact copy of the Paris Eadwine Psalter, including the natural blemishes of the original pages. (The only earlier facsimile edition was published in Copenhagen in 1958.)
The meticulous catalogue description makes not the slightest allusion to mushroom imagery, or anything at all unusual in the illustrations of the MS.
The sample pictures offered by Moleiro are carefully cropped to avoid showing any evidence of offensive fungi. Another on-line resource, Facsimiles of Manuscripts Illuminated in the British Isles, reproduces some tell-tale scenes but without comment on what is being shown.
An article on the Moleiro edition in the UK online magazine Church Times (July, 2005) says:
THE PSALTER, also known as the Anglo-Catalan Psalter, was made in Canterbury in about 1180.
It was left unfinished, and, after 1200, was taken to Catalonia - perhaps as a gift. In the middle of the 14th century, the decoration of the manuscript was completed by Catalan artists, probably working in Barcelona.
The book was meant to be a copy of a famous Carolingian ninth-century Psalter, the Utrecht Psalter, and was acquired by the Christ Church Cathedral Priory, Canterbury, in about 1000. The original was named after the city to whose university library it now belongs, and was made at the Benedictine abbey of Hautvillers, near Rheims, between 820 and 835.
Each psalm is illustrated by drawings with an attempt to depict certain passages in the text, and by amalgamating a number of scenes into a single rectangular picture.
The article loosely associates the BNF Latin MS 8846, the Anglo-Catalan Psalter oaded with mycological imagery, with the mushroomless Canterbury Psalter.
Both originated in the area of Cambridge around 1120 CE, but only the latter remains in that town,
"to whose university library it now belongs."
It explains correctly that the psalter kept in Cambridge, the one without mushrooms, was made first, and then came
the Great Canterbury Psalter, or the Anglo-Catalan Psalter, which followed all the innovations of the Eadwine Psalter. It has three parallel texts - Latin, Hebrew and Catalan - and also has the prefatory illustrations of the Old and New Testament scenes.
To an extent, it is a copy of the Eadwine Psalter, particularly in its text, but the artists of the illustrations seem, on occasion, to have referred back to the original Utrecht Psalter of the ninth century.
This commentary is both both confused and confusing.
The Anglo-Catalan Psalter is MS 8846 in Paris: this is certain because it is the one that was begun in England and completed in Spain, in Catalonia. It is a copy of the British Eadwine psalter, yes, if that came first, but quite different in respect to its illustrations.
Up to about page 100, the Paris Eadwine MS is loaded with mycological imagery, but after that there is none.
This suggests that the mushroom illustrations were done in England when work on the MS started, but not continued when it was finished in Spain.
The expert commentary notes that the Canterbury illustrations (of both MSs, presumably) were based on the Utrecht Psalter, which displays the vivid image of a mushroom tree in the Garden of Eden, but makes no mention of that detail. Failure of attention or intentional blindness? Disregarding the blatant differences in illustration in the two Canterbury Psalters, scholars tend to confuse the two MSs.
As I noted elsewhere, the Wassons knew of the mushroom imagery of the Utrecht Psalter (Rheims, c. 800 CE) - knowledge that might have, but did not, lead them to discover the Paris MS.
The article continues:
A decision was made to alter radically the appearance of the illustrations by changing the monochrome or colored drawings of the Utrecht and Eadwine Psalters to colored paintings with larger figures and burnished-gold grounds - the technique used for the most luxuriously illustrated books of the late 12th century.
This new style of illustration required the artists to make many innovations in the visual composition of their imagery. Of all the copies of the Utrecht Psalter, this one made the greatest demand on the creative ingenuity of its artists.
In spite of the such elaborate description of artistic techniques, involving close comparison of three distinct works of art, no expert has a single word to say about the mushrooms depicted vividly in the Paris MS.
It appears that religious scholars practice intentional blindness when it comes to this extraordinary work of sacred art.
Private Illuminations
I am no expert on medieval illuminated manuscripts, but from what I can gather the Paris Eadwine Psalter was the unique production of British-Celtic artists who supplied the mycological material when the MS was begun.
For some reason, their work was interrupted.
In Catalonia, the artist(s) who took over the job phased out the mushrooms, which do not appear at all after page 100. Odd, since mushrooms of the Genus psilocybe are known to grow prolifically in Catalonia, on the south-facing slopes of the Pyrenees.
But of course they also grow prolifically all over England, Wales, and Ireland.
We may infer a division of opinion among the two teams of scribes who produced Latin MS 8846. The second shift in Catalonia did not eliminate the mushroom imagery of the first team, but they did not continue it, either.
Whatever the case,
"the technique used for the most luxuriously illustrated books of the late 12th century",
...was applied to this masterpiece, suggesting that someone was putting a lot of time and money into it, intending to produce a prized work of art.
I wonder if the individual or group who initially conceived this extraordinary book had in mind to illustrate it fully and completely with mushroom imagery.
Did the "generous friend" who sponsored the Paris Eadwine Psalter, and may have had a hand in directing its initial execution, want to share entheobotanical illuminations with the world at large?
Was the construction of the MS interrupted because someone else was against this disclosure?
This seems probable that something like this occurred, but given how little we know its origin and production, it is impossible to be certain about how and why the Paris Eadwine Psalter was created.

The Sermon on the Mushroom Mountain Latin MS 8846, fol 6v, Psalm 2 BnF
A recent trip to Paris afforded me the chance to visit the National Library of France and acquire some inkjet reproductions of the Paris Eadwine Psalter.
With a couple of exceptions, where the source is wrongly attributed to "the Canterbury Psalter," this material appears exclusively on the Internet on metahistory.
Gaze and wonder!

https://preview.redd.it/7g2q4xs7lhr51.jpg?width=400&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=09cfd39c9832c5af3c02deb1660de47018d628f2
Here is the same folio page shown in another view with color values adjusted to how it looks on microfilm - rather faded.
I have not yet seen or handled the original MS so I do not know if its colors correspond to the gloriously preserved tones of the other version, or if this is a Photoshop effect.
Scholars take the Sermon on the Mount for an illustration of Psalms 2, with allusion perhaps to verse 6,
"Yet I have set my king upon the holy hill of Zion."
In the scant literature I have been able to find on the Paris Eadwine Psalter, we are told that the lavish imagery of the MS is linked textually to the Old Testament books describing early events in the ecclesiastical story of humankind, mainly Genesis, and to the Psalms.
Lately we are hearing a lot of chatter about entheogens in the Old Testament, suggesting that Moses was "high" on Mount Sinai in ways that have not previously been considered.
Benny Shannon seems to have kicked off the discussion, which involves a variation of the ecclesiastical mushroom cult proposed by Carl Ruck, a spinoff of the Allegro thesis (The Sacred Mushroom and the Cross), itself a spinoff of the Wasson thesis.
Biblical Entheogens by Shannon, just out in March 2007, looks set to stir up a lot of controversy, not to mention loud protests from the Catholic Church and other defenders of ye ol'time relijun, salvationist-style.
Paul Krassner has now jumped into the fray, as doubtless many others will do in short time.
I can only wonder how the revelations of the Paris Eadwine Psalter will affect this debate.
One possibility: since the Paris MS does not show amanitas, it may influence the prevalent tendency of Allergo, Ruck, and others to identify the fly-agaric as the entheogenic sacrament of choice among the Christian fold. In other words, it will support speculation that Christianity arose from a mushroom cult in Palestine. I strongly oppose this thesis.
Another possibility: close analysis of MS 8846 may suggest the survival of non-Christian cultic practices in Europe, late remnants of the Mysteries.
If so, we will have to consider how Mystery cult revelations of the magic mushroom differed from the visionary states experienced by the ecclesiastical elite who, according to Ruck and others, kept the secret to themselves. I have some thoughts on this issue, to be presented in a look at the "Good Friday Experiment" coming up in The Psychonautic Adventure, G2.
Typically, the MS presents botanically pictured fungi of different species or genii along with a stylized version, the omphalos-bud, as I am calling it. Beneath the Savior are two botanical images, white (left) and brown (right), The brown mushroom sprouts from the same trunk as a blue omphalos-bud.
In the upper right, under the angelic finger, two botanical specimens with their caps shredding sprout from the same trunk as a blue omphalos-bud. Just to the left, an ochre-colored omphalos-bud shares the trunk with a brown mushroom.
Did the visionary artists who conceived and oversaw the making of the psalter want to signify that both kinds of mushroom, literally represented and stylized, have the same source?
They both come from the fruiting body of the mycelium. The blue-staining properties of the Psilocybe genus, indicative of tryptamines, are continually emphasized by the distinct bluish color of the trunks of the fruiting bodies.
Elsewhere in the MS the botanically represented specimens display the same coloring.

https://preview.redd.it/g08z551alhr51.jpg?width=373&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=2f812f88d860d260e327246f78497a7b92d99e58
Close up, the mushroom mountain has some intriguing details.
The omphalos buds appear in three different types, (left to right):
a composite of mouth-like nodules (recalling a venus fly-trap) white mini-mushrooms in a lattice oblique, tree-shaped triangles
The mini-mushroom head is strikingly juxtaposed to the world globe at the tip of the long inverted cross held by the Savior.
In Christian symbology, the fusion of cross and globe signifies the reign of dominator religion across the entire planet. Here, with the staff pointed down, it may carry another message.
The ecclesiastical staff touches or almost merges with the mini-mushroom cluster - as if to say,
"The true power of the world comes from here?"
The two lower mushrooms are clearly represented as botanical specimens, although the one on the right may incorporate other plant imagery.
Otherwise, the mushroom mount is composed of clustered dark ringlets with some kind of white-flowered plant sprouting from them. These delicate plants have ochre buds or flame-like blossoms at the top.
Botanical identification? I can't say.
However, speaking as a psychonaut, I can attest that the ringlets resemble a sight I have frequently seen in visionary trance: supple conduits that wind endlessly into hyperspace.
I take these conduits to be micro-tubular channels in the atmospheric body of Gaia. Paracelsus called them iliastri, threads of star-matter. They are closely associated with DNA which is structurally arranged by microtubules.
The unidentified plants have three stems, recalling the triplets of DNA.
Could the leaves on the plants be a way of picturing letters in the genetic code?

2020.09.27 22:15 Pickup_your_nuts Alfred de Bathe Brandon: Lawyer, military aviator 1883–1974

This biography, written by Geoffrey Bentley, was first published in the Dictionary of New Zealand Biography in 1996. It was updated in February, 2015.
Alfred de Bathe Brandon was born on 21 July 1883 in Wellington, New Zealand, the son of Alfred de Bathe Brandon, a solicitor, and his wife, Louisa Kebbell. His father was mayor of Wellington from 1893 to 1894 and his grandfather, also named Alfred de Bathe Brandon, was an early Wellington settler, crown prosecutor and MLC. He was educated at Wellington College (1894–1901) and Canterbury College; then he went to England where he studied law at Trinity College, Cambridge. After being called to the Bar at London's Middle Temple in 1906, he returned to Wellington to join his father's legal firm of Brandon, Hislop and Johnston.
Brandon developed an interest in flying and, following the outbreak of war with Germany in 1914, returned to England. He learned to fly at the Hall Flying School at Hendon at his own expense, and on 17 October 1915, after seven weeks' instruction, he qualified as a pilot. In December 1915 he joined the Royal Flying Corps and in January 1916 was commissioned as a second lieutenant.
In recognition of his courageous attacks on Zeppelins during their raids on eastern England in 1916, Alfred de Bathe Brandon was awarded the Military Cross and then appointed a DSO; he was also mentioned in dispatches. He became an overnight celebrity when he was credited with the destruction of the first Zeppelin brought down over England. However, investigations soon concluded that anti-aircraft fire had inflicted the crucial damage that caused Zeppelin L-15 to crash in the sea some miles off the Thames Estuary. But Brandon's assault on L-15, at 9,000 feet while being subjected to enemy machine-gun fire, and his subsequent attack on Zeppelin L-33 on the night of 23 September, helping to bring the airship down in a field, were brave and daring acts which were recognised by the British government. Brandon flew a BE2c single-engined biplane in these engagements. Regular promotions followed and he was commissioned as a major in January 1918. When the Royal Flying Corps and the Royal Naval Air Service were amalgamated on 1 April 1918 to become the Royal Air Force, he held this rank in the new service.
In May 1919 Brandon returned to New Zealand a war hero. Although he never flew again he did make a further contribution to military aviation. On his departure from Britain he was assigned to assist Colonel A. V. Bettington, a senior RAF officer, who was to advise the New Zealand government on the requirements for the country's air defences. After thoroughly appraising existing and potential airfields, Brandon prepared that section of Bettington's report dealing with landing grounds. The task took him six months and afterwards he returned to law.
Alfred de Bathe Brandon married Ada Mabel Perry at the Cathedral Church of St Paul, Wellington, on 2 January 1942; he was 58, she 38. They had one child, Peter de Bathe Brandon. After retiring in the 1950s Brandon continued to pursue his leisure interests of horse-racing, golf and fishing. However, the death of his son in a road accident in October 1969 left him grieving. He died in Upper Hutt on 19 June 1974, survived by his wife.

2020.09.23 13:02 Silver_Practice picked up a novel I started years ago not sure if I wanted to get back into it again. check out this first chapter and tell me if you find it at all interesting. it's a bit rough around the edges but I feel it should give a general idea.

An ocean of sickly pale blue swirls danced along the ceiling above Tobi's bed. He always found himself lost in them. Sometimes if he let his mind wander he could see something in them. Something familiar that had been with him as long as he could remember. Something alive that didn't have a name, just a texture and a heartbeat. It was a cold and empty thing but he knew it was looking back at him, somehow he just knew.
He wondered if it was morning yet. He wondered if he could even call it morning. The sun didn’t shine in Evernight forest. The monster trees were so big they blotted out the sun, hence the name Evernight. The only light came from the peculiar creatures known as sunbugs, giant insects that were something of a cross between a firefly and a bird-eating spider. The ghostly blue glow they gave off often reflected off of the putrid pond outside of Tobi’s window.
As the colors continued to ebb and flow across the cracked wood overhead, Tobi began to have a sort of daydream. “Canterbury”, the word slipped into his head, as it often did in his private moments. It filled his head with the sort of empty wistful hope that only a child is supposed to have. “ Dreams are like those frogs with all the colors ” Roman would warn “ sure they’re pretty but if you try to grab one your gonna end up poisoned then dead.” But, roman was at work in the mines so Tobi just pushed him out of his mind.
"Must be nice" he whispered to the vacant dark and the dancing blue.
I bet it smells like fresh bread in the morning and everyone has a nice warm bed to sleep in. all the little homi girls and boys wake up every day to the sun and don’t have to smell swamp water and shit. I want to see it. Even if just for a day. I just want to leave this place and never come back. If I don't I'm just going to end up like...
He stopped when he started that thinking about lewis again
He wished….he wasn't quite sure what he wished. For things to be different, maybe? But, different how? This place was never going to change. He was never going to live in canterbury, that was for Homi only and Tobi was a big dumb green malacus. Just and an ogre to them, a monster and a workhorse. The only way he'd even see inside the gates was as a day slave and they only took the biggest and strongest for that. “Most of those guys end up dead .” he thought “ But, man they must die happy without this stink.”
He knew the overseer would be coming to town soon to take the latest haul from the mines. He wondered if he should try. Maybe, if he begged he would be allowed to work himself to death in the city. This place would kill him one day soon, he believed, so it wouldn't make much of a difference. Roman would be alone. But, then maybe he’d be better off that way, without the burden of a useless little brother.
But overseer Mayland wouldn’t be easy to convince. He wasn't like the last overseer. Cornwallis, the last overseer, loved taking day slaves. Tobi thought he got a kick out of using the whip on them. Mayland was different.
"The Malacus are the people of the swamp."
He could almost see Mayland’s stupid round little face as he remembered the speech he gave on his first visit. That voice, so high in pitch, had to have made a few ears bleed.
"From the swamp, they came and in the swamp, they'll remain proud of their humble lives. And I am truly proud that we haven not simply left you to the wicked ways of your forefathers. Instead, we have chosen to uplift you. You work the mines for us and it rids you of idleness while putting those savage tendencies to more noble ends. We even pay you for your labors with the fruits of ours. You are sheltered, clothed, fed, and free of the burdens of more civilized races, free to be what you truly are. This is your home and sanctuary where you may act as your nature demands without causing harm to the greater world. Truly this town of Nox is a crowning achievement in Malacus and Homi relations. I will be glad to do my part in keeping it that way so long as I am it’s protector. It is my privilege to know your people and learn your ways whilst guiding you forward to a more moral existence ”
It always made Tobi laugh when he thought of Mayland proclaiming himself a protector. All of the homi were so tiny it was a mystery to most of the people in town how the sunbugs didn’t carry them off whenever they came to the forest. Were it not for their weaponry a single Malacus would beat them like a drunk father might beat a pack of his own unruly children. But, they did have weapons, powerful ones at that and every man in town knew better than to tempt fate.
Weapons or no Tobi had never seen Mayland raise so much as a finger against anyone. He had never seen him take any day slaves either. But, maybe if Tobi begged him. He’d have to approach him and find out. But to do that he’d have to find a way past the guards and make sure Roman didn’t stop him.
SLAM
The front door.
“Guess it’s mornin” said Tobi.
"Did you sleep at all?"
" What do you think?"
Roman crossed the room and sat on the foot of the bed.
"I think you haven't been the same since it happened."
"I think you're right. That's good eye you got there, think you could lend me it my left ones kinda wonky."
"Tobi, it wasn't your fault."
"It was right in front of me."
"And there was nothing you could do."
"There was one thing I could do."
" Get killed with him?"
" I could've taken off the stupid eye patch."
"Don't even joke."
" Don't joke, he says. "
Tobi got out of bed and stood in front of his brother tripping over his own bedsheets along the way.
" look me in the eye"
Roman just stared at the floor.
"I said look at it!"
Roman remained silent.
"You can't and that's the joke. The mines, this crappy town, those little Homi pricks its all a fucking Joke Roman. We're the fucking joke all of us."
"Put the eye patch on, Tobi."
“And why is everyone so afraid of my fucking eyeball?”
"I said, PUT THE FUCKING EYEPATCH ON!"
Tobi couldn't help himself. Whatever fire drove him to talk so big was gone when his brother raised his voice. It was always that way like he was some kind of trained animal. He went to the lonely little table in the corner and put on the eye patch.
"That eye isn't going to protect you. It'll scare people, ya, but not the type of scared you want them to be."
" what even is it? I’ve had it my whole life and you won’t tell me shit other than always keep it covered. It's in my face I want to know what it is."
“No, you don’t”
“Is it why mom and dad left?”
Tobi knew he had crossed a line. But something inside him didn’t care anymore. The room felt like a funeral procession had just passed through it and Roman was staring right at him now. Tobi forgot sometimes just how big his big brother was sometimes. People in town called him the boss not because there was such a title but simply out of respect. Everyone listened when roman said something and there wasn't a single Malacus man that even entertained a fight with the boss. These facts came back to Tobi at this moment but still, he pressed. And after a long moment, Roman spoke.
“You want to know?”
“Yes”
“Fine, I’ll tell you but not until you’re out of your rut. Give it three days and if I think you’re up to it I’ll tell you everything I’ve been keeping secret from you since you were a baby.”
“Bu-”
“No Tobi you want to know then fine but there’s only so much fucked up shit a person can process at a time. Go to bed, get some sleep, and get your shit together then we’ll talk.”
“Fine, whatever.”
Roman then did something he had never done before.
“Tobi”
“What?”
He wrapped both arms around Tobi. At first, Tobi thought he was a dead man. It wouldn’t have been the first time Roman had kicked the crap out of him for having a big mouth. but instead, he pulled him in and simply said “I love you, little brother.” Tobi was caught off guard at first but after a second simply blurted out a meek “I know”.
And with that Roman turned and walked into his room. One of two rooms in the desolate shack the brothers called home.
Tobi felt relief. He didn’t know why he simply just did. He needed to get to work but he was suddenly so tired. Roman was right; he hadn’t been sleeping well. He decided it was time to go to bed get some sleep and get his shit together but not because Roman had told him so. That would be admitting defeat he decided to go to bed because he was finally done punishing himself. He didn’t think about becoming a day slave anymore or trying to get an audience with Mayland. He simply wanted to rest. He walked to his bed and fell face-first on it. His last thought before falling asleep was lewis. Lewis in Canterbury, kicking the shit out of all the Homi. and then he just drifted off to nowhere.

2020.09.23 10:50 Silver_Practice Ro.........a story I shelved years ago thought I could start over maybe finish it this time. what do you guys think of chapter 1

An ocean of sickly pale blue swirls danced along the ceiling above Tobi's bed. He always found himself lost in them. Sometimes if he let his mind wander he could see something in them. Something familiar that had been with him as long as he could remember. Something alive that didn't have a name, just a texture and a heartbeat. It was a cold and empty thing but he knew it was looking back at him,somehow he just knew.
He wondered if it was morning yet. He wondered if he could even call it morning. The sun didn’t shine in Evernight forest. The monster trees were so big they blotted out the sun, hence the name Evernight. The only light came from the peculiar creatures known as sunbugs, giant insects that were something of a cross between a firefly and a bird eating spider. The ghostly blue glow they gave off often reflected off of the putrid pond outside of Tobi’s window.
As the colors continued to eb and flow across the cracked wood over head, Tobi began to have a sort of daydream. “Canterbury” , the word slipped into his head, as it often did in his private moments. It filled his head with the sort of empty wistful hope that only a child is supposed to have. “ Dreams are like those frogs with all the colors ” Roman would warn “ sure they’re pretty but if you try to grab one your gonna end up poisoned then dead.” But, roman was at work in the mines so Tobi just pushed him out of his mind.
"Must be nice" he whispered to the vacant dark and the dancing blue.
I bet it smells like fresh bread in the morning and every one has a nice warm bed to sleep in. all the little homi girls and boys wake up every day to the sun and don’t have to smell swamp water and shit. I want to see it. Even if just for a day. I just want to leave this place and never come back. If I don't I'm just going to end up like...
He stopped when he started that thinking about lewis again
He wished….he wasn't quite sure what he wished. For things to be different, maybe? But, different how? This place was never going to change. He was never going to live in canterbury, that was for Homi only and tobi was a big dumb green malacus.Just and ogre to them a monster and a work horse. The only way he'd even see inside the gates was as a day slave and they only took the biggest and strongest for that. “Most of those guys end up dead .” he thought “ But, man they must die happy without this stink.”
He knew the overseer would be coming to town soon to take the latest haul from the mines. He wondered if he should try. Maybe, if he begged he would be allowed to work himself to death in the city. This place would kill him one day soon, he believed, so it wouldn't make much of a difference. Roman would be alone. But, then maybe he’d be better off that way, without the burden of a useless little brother.
But overseer Mayland wouldn’t be easy to convince. He wasn't like the last overseer. Cornwallis, the last overseer, loved taking day slaves. Tobi thought he got a kick out of using the whip on them. Mayland was different.
"The Malacus are the people of the swamp."
He could almost see Mayland’s stupid round little face as he remembered the speech he gave on his first visit. That voice, so high in pitch, had to have made a few ears bleed.
"From the swamp they came and in the swamp they'll remain proud of their humble lives. And I am truly proud that we haven not simply left you to the wicked ways of your forefathers. Instead we have chosen to uplift you. You work the mines for us and it rids you of idleness while putting those savage tendencies to more noble ends. We even pay you for your labors with the fruits of ours. You are sheltered, clothed, fed and free of the burdens of more civilized races , free to be what you truly are.This is your home and sanctuary where you may act as your nature demands without causing harm to the greater world. Truly this town of Nox is a crowning achievement in Malacus and Homi relations. I will be glad to do my part in keeping it that way so long as I am it’s protector. It is my privilege to know your people and learn your ways whilst guiding you forward to a more moral existence ”
It always made Tobi laugh when he thought of Mayland proclaiming himself a protector. All of the homi were so tiny it was a mystery to most of the people in town how the sunbugs didn’t carry them off whenever they came to the forest. Were it not for their weaponry a single Malacus would beat them like a drunk father might beat a pack of his own unruly children. But, they did have weapons, powerful ones at that and every man in town knew better than to tempt fate.
Weapons or no Tobi had never seen mayland raise so much as a finger against anyone. He had never seen him take any day slaves either. But, maybe if tobi begged him. He’d have to approach him and find out. But to do that he’d have to find a way past the guards and make sure Roman didn’t stop him.
SLAM
The front door.
“Guess it’s mornin” said Tobi.
"Did you sleep at all?"
" What do you think?"
Roman crossed the room and sat on the foot of the bed.
"I think you haven't been the same since it happened."
"I think you're right. Good eye you got there think you could lend me it my left ones kinda wonky."
"Tobi, it wasn't your fault."
"It was right in front of me."
"And there was nothing you could do."
"There was one thing I could do."
" Get killed with him?"
" I could've took off the stupid eye patch."
"Don't even joke."
" Don't joke, he says. "
Tobi got out of bed and stood in front of his brother tripping over his own bedsheets along the way.
" look me in the eye"
Roman just stared at the floor.

2020.09.17 14:21 anonextra To the anti-blackpill lurkers out there, how do you argue against the idea that relationships and sex are important for life satisfaction?

First of all, I don’t think anyone’s entitled to relationships or sex. Some might disagree with me (but probably less than you think. People who believe in the entitlement to sex usually post on incels.co, and even there not everyone is in agreement).
I just want more people to acknowledge that you’re less likely to lead a satisfying life without sex and relationships.
So, I’m going to link a few studies to back up my point.

“Orientations to Happiness and the Experience of Everyday Activities”
https://ir.canterbury.ac.nz/bitstream/handle/10092/8040/thesis_fulltext.pdf;sequence=1
Quote:
“Sex/making love was the highest rated behavior on all dimensions in this dataset, consistent with several other daily activity studies (Kahneman et al., 2004; Killingsworth & Gilbert, 2010; Robinson & Godbey, 1997).”

“The emotional cost of poor mating performance”
https://www.researchgate.net/publication/328095576_The_emotional_cost_of_poor_mating_performance
Quotes:
“Consistent with our original hypothesis, we found that people who indicated poor mating performance experienced more negative emotions such as sadness and loneliness, and fewer positive emotions such as happiness and excitement, and they were less satisfied with their lives.”
“To put it differently, a substantial part of poor emotional state observed in the population may be due to poor mating performance. This being the case, research in this area can potentially have important implications for improving well-being—poor mental state could be improved by devising ways to improve mating performance. In turn, this has implications that go beyond the realm of psychology.”
“Alleviating poor mating performance, in most instances, requires external to the individual assistance.”

“Loneliness and Social Isolation as Risk Factors for Mortality: A Meta-Analytic Review”
https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/abs/10.1177/1745691614568352
Quotes:
“Actual and perceived social isolation are both associated with increased risk for early mortality.”
“Across studies in which several possible confounds were statistically controlled for, the weighted average effect sizes were as follows: social isolation odds ratio (OR) = 1.29, loneliness OR = 1.26, and living alone OR = 1.32, corresponding to an average of 29%, 26%, and 32% increased likelihood of mortality, respectively.”
“Results also differ across participant age, with social deficits being more predictive of death in samples with an average age younger than 65 years.”
“Overall, the influence of both objective and subjective social isolation on risk for mortality is comparable with well-established risk factors for mortality.”

“Gender differences in depression in 23 European countries. Cross-national variation in the gender gap in depression”
https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0277953610002844?via%3Dihub
Quote:
“Moreover, men seem to suffer more from the loss of a partner, especially since their wife is often also their closest confidant, while women often have confidants that are outside the family. This is partly reflected in our results, with widowhood as well as single-hood being a more significant risk factor for depression in men.”

“Predictors of Early Recovery From Major Depression Among Persons Admitted to Community-Based Clinics”
https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamapsychiatry/fullarticle/206644
Quotes:
“Being married (OR = 2.4;95% CI = 1.1-5.3; P = .03) was the only other baseline characteristic or treatment variable that remained significant in the logistic regression.”
“Less severe depression, having received adequate antidepressant treatment, female sex, and being married independently predicted early recovery”

2020.09.16 07:28 nickyv917 How WWF Should Have Booked Bart Gunn Post-Brawl For All

Today, we're going to talk about what may very well be WWE's dumbest idea ever. An idea that somehow killed the careers of both the odds-on favorite and actual winner of this whole thing. Yes kids, that's right, it's the Brawl for All.
The idea for the Brawl for All is a pretty simple one. 16 fighters, single elimination tournament, $75k to the winner, $25k to the runner-up. Easy peasy, except for two little hooks. One, it's a boxing tournament, if that does anything for you (what do you mean it doesn't?), and two, it's a shoot, so these guys are fighting for realsies. The problem with that is everything, but the main problem is that these guys aren't trained fighters, so they just spent the whole fight throwing wild haymakers at one another, and it sucked. Crowds expecting to see Austin, Rock, and Undertaker instead got Mark Canterbury and 8-Ball in boxing gloves. Plus literally more than a third of the field got injured because of this in one way or another, the worst being the injury suffered by Dr. Death Steve Williams.
Williams was brought into the company in May 1998, and Jim Ross would constantly hype him up as the toughest SOB in the locker room, and Vince Russo wanted to test that notion, and also wanted to see Bradshaw get annihilated, I can get behind this. He beat Quebecer Pierre, aka PCO, in the first round on points, and then ran into a roadblock in the second round against Bart Gunn.
Bart Gunn was never all that exciting of a performer, he was a tag guy, and usually the less exciting member of whatever team he was in. He was in the Smoking Guns with Billy Gunn. He was in the New Midnight Express with Bob Holly, and when you're losing a personality contest to Bob Holly, freaking danger. Speaking of Bob Holly, Bart fought Bob in the first round, and was already the underdog, given Holly's tough-guy reputation. But he managed to get the win on points.
However, all of the first round matches were snoozefests, and Bart got Dr. Death in the second round. He knew Dr. Death was supposed to win, so he wanted to go out with a little bit of excitement. Maybe with a strong knockout or something, but instead he was told, "we aren't worried about Dr. Death". If I'm Bart Gunn, and I heard the bookers write me off like that, my new life goal is to kill Dr. Death. And that's exactly what happened.
Bart held the advantage for most of the fight, and with seconds to go in the final round, Bart Gunn knocked Dr. Death's lights out. Knockout plus a torn hamstring to boot. And that was no fluke. Semi-finals vs. The Godfather, knockout. Finals vs. Bradshaw, first round knockout. The only three knockouts in the entire tournament came from Bart Gunn and by the end, the crowd was definitely into him. He had just beaten four of the toughest men in the WWE (three of them by knockout), and while he wasn't getting Austin or Mankind reactions, people were ready to cheer for Bart, and then nothing.
His win over Bradshaw happened on August 24, 1998. His next WWE match was in February, where he failed to capture the Hardcore Title from the guy he beat in the first round, Bob Holly. And then Butterbean happened. Watching a man's career end like this shouldn't be this funny, but here we are. He then had some success in All Japan, makes sense since Dr. Death was a legend there and he beat his ass. He won a couple of tag titles there, and that's all his career really amounted to. And that's a real shame, because he at least earned a look off the back of that Brawl for All win, so let’s do that.
So Bart Gunn wins the Brawl for All and cuts an impassioned promo about how this is just the start of big things for Bart Gunn. And then he's off TV for seven weeks. He's safe nowhere. Next time we see Bart will be on the October 12th Raw. At the prior In Your House, Breakdown, Stone Cold Steve Austin lost the WWF Title after Undertaker and Kane both pinned him. Now, in real life the Raw after Breakdown had Austin ride in on a Zamboni, so we aren't messing with that, that's a classic moment. Next week, McMahon in the hospital, Mr. Socko, bedpan shot, untouchable. One week later though, Vince is taking it from all sides, he's got Austin mad as hell at him, Kane and Undertaker are gunning for him, and now Mankind is trying to butter him up, and he just wants some peace. So he pays $50,000 to hire a private security team to guard every entrance to the arena, and keep Stone Cold out of the building, and at first, it works.
The first hour of the show is smooth sailing for Vince. He's calmly sitting in his office, signing papers, putting babyfaces through the ringer, all of Vince's favorite things. But by the top of the second hour, Vince starts getting paranoid. It's too quiet. He's been doing this song and dance for months, and he knows Austin's gonna come from out of nowhere and beat his ass. Well, Vince is gonna get the jump on him first. He calls his security team, and tells them to not just keep Stone Cold out of the building, but to find him and throw him out. Security guy is like "that's really not what we do", but Vince cuts him off and says, "I'll double your pay, $100,000 to find Austin, and I'll even throw in a $20K bonus for the man who finds him". He hangs up, still upset but satisfied as they cut to commercial.
When they come back, Vince gets a call for a bartender on the other side of town. He says Stone Cold is at his bar, and he's been here for a few hours. Vince goes, "make sure he doesn't leave, and you'll get that $20K". He hangs up, and sends a few of his goons to go over there and kick his ass, so he won't come to the arena. He sends Shane, Big Boss Man, and the Acolytes, aka the formation of the Corporation, since they were about a month away from forming anyway.
When the Corporation gets to the bar, the bartender meets him at the door. He wants the money upfront before they go in, but Bossman just shoves him aside, they'll find him themselves and just split the money, those dicks. Stone Cold is just sitting in the back corner, with about ten empty beers around him. Shane barks out, "Hey Austin, got a message for ya from the boss." Austin is like "you think I give a rat's ass about what that piece of crap McMahon wants". Acolytes swipe all of the beers off his table, and Austin stands up, and shoves them back, and the fight is on. Austin is managing to hold his own, but Bradshaw starts punching him in the solar plexus, again and again, and it looks like Austin's getting overwhelmed, when suddenly Shane goes flying by. And then Faarooq does as well. And suddenly, our hero Bart Gunn comes in and beats Bradshaw's ass. Austin fights with Bossman, Corporation gets thrown back out, but not before Austin reaches into Shane's pockets and grabs the $20K. Once everyone's gone, Austin gives half of it to the bartender, plus a little extra to cover damages, and goes "pleasure doing business with you" as the segment ends.
However, they cut back to Austin at the bar, sitting next to Gunn, right before the main event. Austin goes, "So here's what I don't get. You kick all that ass in the Brawl for All, nice job by the way, and I thought you'd rocket up the ladder and start competing for titles, but you just disappeared, what happened?" Bart just goes, "I beat up their golden boy. They wanted Bradshaw to win, and I beat his ass, so Vince just told me to stay home. I wanted to be available just in case he changed his mind, but that probably ain't happening, is it?" By the way, most of that is true, but were swapping in Bradshaw as the corporately approved brawler for three reasons. He's just as believable of a fighter as Steve Williams, if not more so because he's younger. Williams still has a torn hamstring. And I can not stress this enough. NO WWF FAN IN 1998 GAVE A SHIT ABOUT DR. DEATH. He was already a relic when he got to WWF and I don't know why they thought he'd make a believable foil to Steve Austin, that would be ridiculous. Anyway, Austin replies, "No, he won't. Look, let me tell you something about Vince McMahon: unless you're one of his pet projects, you'll get nothing from him. That's why I have to fight so hard to be the champion. If you know you should be a bigger deal than Vince will make you, knock the damn door down, beat up anyone who stands in your way, take what's yours, dammit. Just stick with me, do what I do, and you'll land right where you need to be."
Now, I know what you might be thinking, "Stone Cold didn't need any help, he's the ass-kicking-est man on the planet, he beat down the Corporation all by himself, gimme a hell yeah", and I get that. But to me, Austin always represented the hard-working, blue-collar man, whose boss is a dick and just wants a fair shake. And sometimes, that person just wants to go to the bar and throw a couple back with his bud, and that's what Bart Gunn is here; he's Stone Cold's drinking pal. Someone who could help Austin in a jam, handle the mid-card Corporation guys while Austin deals with Rock and Taker. I think it'll be a great fit. Plus, it's 1998, if you're gonna have a underdog good guy, who messes with bullies and doesn't take any shit from his boss, he might as well be named Bart.
So Austin and Bart go to town on the new Corporation, and their first goal is to put a title on Bart, and the next week on Raw, he picks up the Hardcore Title from (drumroll) Bossman! This was before the 24/7 rule so the title was actually valuable, and it's perfect for Bart right now. Austin would probably take it just to stick it to one of Vinces guys, but that titles beneath him, and he just wants the World Title, not so with Bart. So Bart picks up the Hardcore Title from Bossman, thanks his big left hook, the move that got Bart through the Brawl for All.
Now the first big bump in the road for these guys would happen at Survivor Series '98. The Deadly Games Tournament, generally regarded as one of the best PPVs WWE ever did, so you don't want to change too much about it, but we can add Bart to the mix. Bart Gunn will basically take Steven Regal's place, and will face X-Pac in the first round, so we don't get a double DQ that gave Austin a bye to the semis, that was kinda dumb. Anyway, Bart and X-Pac would have a solid little match, Pac was always good at carrying matches with lesser in-ring talents, and Bart would kill off Pac, leading to a quarterfinal match that Mr. McMahon would love, Steve Austin vs. his new bestie Bart Gunn. They shake hands, say the loser buys the beers, and duke it out. Austin was pretty banged up by Bossman in the first round, so Bart actually gets a bit of shine here, but Austin hits the Stunner for the win, let's not get too crazy. After that, the rest of the PPV goes as intended. Austin loses to Mankind, Rock beats Taker by DQ, and Rock joins the Corporation to become the Corporate Champion.
And from then on, you don't have to have them constantly with each other, but if Austin's getting ganged up on, he can make a save. He can be Austin's emergency tag partner in a jam. He can take midcard titles off of Corporate Champs, like William Regal down the line. And if the crowd ever turns on him, he can just buy into the McMahon posse, and that's a feud. I don't want to try and rewrite too many of Austin's greatest hits to shoehorn in Gunn, but he could definitely fit into some, like him driving the beer truck with Austin on top with the hose. But that would be such a better place for him, instead just dead in the water and waiting for Butterbean to put him out of his misery.

2020.09.15 23:01 StevenStevens43 From Rud Hud Hudibras to Meryptah

From Rud Hud Hudibras to Meryptah
Rud Hud Hudibras:
Rud Hud Hudibras was king of Loegria.
The first sensational claim about Rud Hud Hudibras, is that he founded kaerreint (Catnerbury).
Rud Hud Hudibras
Rud Hud Hudibras (Welsh: Run baladr bras) was a legendary king of the Britons) as recounted by Geoffrey of Monmouth. He was the son of King Leil and ruled during a civil war.
During the waning years of Leil's reign, the kingdom of the Britons became unstable, and civil war broke out. Rud Hud Hudibras became king after his father's death and reigned for 39 years, ending the civil war and restoring peace to the kingdom. During his reign, he founded Kaerreint, later renamed Canterbury by the Angles.

Canterbury Arms
Durovernum Cantiacorum:
Now whilst there is nothing to support the claim that there was a settlement founded here by Rud Hud Hudibras, there is also nothing to contradict the claim.
There is believed to have been a tribe known as the Cantiaci which settled in this area in a pre-roman settlement known as Durovernum Cantiacorum.
Cantiaci
The Cantiaci or Cantii were an Iron Age Celtic people living in Britain before the Roman conquest, and gave their name to a civitas of Roman Britain. They lived in the area now called Kent, in south-eastern England. Their capital was Durovernum Cantiacorum, now Canterbury

Cantiaci
Pale-olithic:
And i am sure it goes without saying, that evidence of inhabitation in this area, dates all the way back to the Pale-olithic era.
Early history
The Canterbury area has been inhabited since prehistoric times. Lower Paleolithic axes, and Neolithic and Bronze Age pots have been found in the area.[11]

Canterbury City walls
The earliest known attestation for Cantium, comes from Julius Caeser in 55 BC, whom actually spoke quite fondly of the Cantiums.
Cantiaci
Julius Caesar landed in Cantium in 55 and 54 BC, the first Roman expeditions to Britain. He recounts in his De Bello Gallico v. 14:[citation needed]
"Ex his omnibus longe sunt humanissimi qui Cantium incolunt, quae regio est maritima omnis, neque multum a Gallica differunt consuetudine.""Of all these (British tribes), by far the most civilised are they who dwell in Kent, which is entirely a maritime region, and who differ but little from the Gauls in their customs."

Kaerguenit:
Apparently, he also founded Kaerguenit (Winchester).
Rud Hud Hudibras
He is also said to have founded Kaerguenit (Winchester)

Winchester coat of Arms
Oppidum:
Now, Winchester, also has evidence of inhabitation dating back to pre-historic times.
But Winchester also has an oppidum, which is an Iron age settlement.
Pre-history
The area around Winchester has been inhabited since prehistoric times, with three Iron Age hillforts, Oram's Arbour, St. Catherine's Hill, and Worthy Down all nearby. In the Late Iron Age, a more urban settlement type developed, known as an oppidum

British Late Iron-age:
The late British Iron age began in approximately 100 BC.
Therefore it would appear archaeologists do not believe the Oppidum to be any older than 100 BC.
Periodisation
Hill forts.
However, three Iron-age hill forts were also mentioned.
And according to the periodisation link above, the British Iron-age dates back to beginnings in 800 BC.
Now no date is actually given for what appears to be the oldest of the Iron age hill-forts, St Catherines Hill.
So could be anywhere between 100 BC, and 800 BC.
St Catherines Hill
St. Catherine's Hill is a 43-hectare (110-acre) biological Site of Special Scientific Interest on the outskirts of Winchester in Hampshire.[1][2] It is managed by Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust,[3] and most of it is an Iron Age hillfort, which is a Scheduled Monument.[4]

Paladur Castle:
So, you can decide for yourself whether or not we found evidence to support the claim.
Certainly did not find anything that contradicts the claim.
But that is not all.
Apparently Rud Hud Hudibras also founded Paladur Castle, in what would today be Shaftesbury.

Caer Palladour:
Whilst some historians dismiss this legend as "mere invention", it does not take away the fact, that even today, "Caer Palladour", is an alternative name for Shaftesbury.
Toponymy
The original Celtic name is first recorded in Medieval Welsh literature as Caer Vynnydd y Paladr (The Mountain Fort/City of the Spears)[2] and Thomas Gale records the name as Caer Palladour in his work of 1709.[3] Though "Palladour" was described by one 19th-century directory as "mere invention", it has continued to be used as a poetic and alternative name for the town.[4]

Capys:
Anyway, legend places Rud Hud Hudibras reign around the same period Capys was king in Alba Longa.

Geoffrey places Rud Hud Hudibras' reign during the time Capys was king in Alba Longa and Haggai, Amos), Joel), and Azariah) were prophesying in Israel.

Given his name, i am surprised they are not placing his reign alongside Robin hood.

Capys:
Now, Capys is said to have reigned from 963 to 935 BC.

,[4] in the Etruscan language the word capys meant \"hawk\" or \"falcon\" (or possibly \"eagle\" or \"vulture\").
Fiachu Finscothach:
Now, i would just like to look at other events happened around this given period.
Fiachu Finscothach whom reigned as high king of Ireland 975–955 BC, was sent in to exile, but returned as head of a "black fleet".
Fiachu Finscothach
Fíacha Fínscothach, son of Sétna Airt, was, according to medieval Irish legend and historical tradition, a High King of Ireland. His father became High King after killing the previous incumbent, Rothechtaid mac Main, in single combat at Cruachan in defence of Fíachu. Fíachu went into exile, but returned at the head of a "black fleet", and, with the assistance of Muinemón,
Flag of Cornwall:
Now i just wonder if the words "Black fleet" give a clue as to where he went in to exile? And i wonder if it was in the lands of Queen Gwendolans descendants in Cornwall, desperate to ally themselves with others, for their fight against Loegria.

Prophets of Israel:
Now, surprisingly, i am not going to bother verifying the prophets of Israel.
Quite simply, during the Egyptian 18th dynasty, which pre-dates the prophets of Israel by some considerable margin, there was a High priest of Ptah, named Ptahmose.
Thutmose)
Thutmose was an ancient Egyptian vizier) under Amenhotep III, during the 18th Dynasty.
As vizier of the North (i.e. of Lower Egypt), Thutmose officiated from Memphis, while his southern counterpart was based in Thebes. He was married to Tawy, and had at least two sons: Ptahmose, who became High Priest of Ptah
Ptahmose:
Ptahmose reigned under two pharoahs, Thutmose IV, and Amenhotep III.
Ptahmose
Ptahmose was High Priest of Ptah in Memphis during the time of Thutmose IV and in the beginning of the reign of Amenhotep III.
14th Century BC:
Just to get a rough idea of what period we are discussing, Thutmose IV reigned from approximately 1401 – 1391 BC .
Thutmose IV
Thutmose IV (sometimes read as Thutmosis or Tuthmosis IV, Thothmes in older history works in Latinized Greek; Ancient Egyptian: ḏḥwtj.msj(.w) "Thoth is born")[1] was the 8th Pharaoh of the 18th dynasty of Egypt, who ruled in approximately the 14th century BC.

High priest of Ptah:
Now, the job description of a high priest of Ptah, pretty much translates to "chief architect".
High priest of Ptah
The High Priest of Ptah was sometimes referred to as "The Greatest of the Directors of Craftsmanship" (wr-ḫrp-ḥmwt). This title refers to Ptah as the patron god of the craftsmen.[1]

Prophet:
Now, Thutmose also had another son, named Meryptah, whom also became a vizier.
Meryptah likely became the first ever vizier, to be awarded with the title "prophet", in his job description, amongst his other titles, such as chief steward of the mortuary temple of Amenhotep III, which i imagine translates to, "architect of the construction of Amenhotep III's resting place.
Thutmose)
He was married to Tawy, and had at least two sons: Ptahmose, who became High Priest of Ptah in Memphis, and Meryptah, who later assumed many titles such as prophet and chief steward of the Mortuary Temple of Amenhotep III.[1]#cite_note-1)

Summary:
For reasons connected with above, i have no motivation to go to 800 or 900 BC in order to verify the existence of Prophets.

2020.09.14 01:04 Pickup_your_nuts Leslie Cecil Lloyd Averill 1897–1981. Soldier doctor, community leader

This biography, written by Geoffrey W. Rice, was first published in the Dictionary of New Zealand Biography in 2000.
Leslie Cecil Lloyd Averill was born in the vicarage of St Michael and All Angels, Christchurch, on 25 March 1897, the son of Alfred Walter Averill and his wife, Mary Weir. His father, the vicar, was later archbishop and primate of the Anglican church in New Zealand. Leslie began his education at William Wilson’s private school for boys in Cranmer Square in 1904, before entering Christ’s College as a day boy in 1908. When his father was appointed bishop of Waiapu in 1910, he and his elder brother Walter became boarders at Christ’s College. Leslie captained the second rugby XV and was selected for the first cricket XI. He was made house prefect and then school prefect in 1915. He studied languages and Classics, and a good mark in Greek in the matriculation exam qualified him for the medical preliminary. His ambition to become a doctor was possibly fired by the scene of an amputation in a cyclorama of the battle of Gettysburg which he saw at the 1906–7 New Zealand International Exhibition in Christchurch.
Averill began his medical intermediate at Auckland University College in 1916, where he played in the first XV. When his friend Paul Clark volunteered for the First World War in 1916, so did Averill, despite parental qualms. After training at Trentham Military Camp, both succeeded in gaining commissions. An article in New Zealand Truth alleged that Averill had been given a commission because he was the son of a bishop, but in fact he had been placed in the top 7 of about 120 in an open examination. He left New Zealand on 8 February 1918 with the 34th Reinforcements and was posted as second lieutenant in the New Zealand Rifle Brigade at Brocton camp. After 12 days in hospital with measles, he joined the brigade in France in May.
Averill was awarded the Military Cross for exceptional gallantry and fine leadership during the assault on Bapaume in August 1918, where Clark was killed. However, the exploit for which he is best remembered is the capture of Le Quesnoy on 4 November. The Allies could not shell the old walled town because thousands of French civilians were sheltering within it. The New Zealanders found a lightly defended section of the 60-foot wall, and Averill was the first to enter the town from a scaling ladder. As the New Zealanders poured in the Germans surrendered, and Averill helped round up over 700 prisoners.
The war ended the following week and he went on leave to England. There he advised the official war artist, G. E. Butler, who was painting the entry to Le Quesnoy for the New Zealand government’s war collection. In 1923 Averill returned to Le Quesnoy with Marshal Joffre and Sir James Allen for the unveiling of the New Zealand war memorial, designed by the Christchurch architect Samuel Hurst Seager.
After serving briefly in the army of occupation in Germany, Averill won a New Zealand Expeditionary Force scholarship in October 1919 to study medicine at the University of Edinburgh. There he was president of the athletics club and captain of the first XV (1922–23), and rowed for the university in 1921, gaining the rare distinction of a double blue. He qualified MB, CM in 1922, MD in 1924, and was elected FRCSE in 1925. By then he was engaged to a fellow medical student, Isabella Mary Wilkie Roberton, daughter of an Auckland doctor. She qualified MB, ChB in 1922, and Leslie returned to New Zealand to marry her in Auckland on 25 November 1925. They were to have three daughters and two sons. Isabel had been a house surgeon and locum but did not practise after their marriage, except for a few temporary positions. Instead she devoted her life to her family and her husband’s career. She was actively involved in the National Council of Women of New Zealand, the Girl Guides and Te Wai Pounamu Maori Girls’ College.
Leslie Averill had entered general practice in Christchurch by early 1926, with a particular interest in obstetrics and gynaecology. Horrified by the low standards and high death rates of the city’s many small nursing homes, he was instrumental in seeking Department of Health inspections, which resulted in several closures. In 1926 he was appointed to the first executive of St George’s Hospital, the new Anglican private hospital in Papanui, which opened in 1928. He held this position for the next 42 years, becoming chairman and licensee in 1941. Largely thanks to his energy and foresight, St George’s grew to become one of the South Island’s leading surgical hospitals. In 1929 he was appointed medical superintendent of St Helens Hospital, a post he filled with conspicuous success until 1962. That year the hospital moved to new buildings in Colombo Street. It was renamed Christchurch Women’s Hospital in 1968. Averill’s name appears on the foundation stone beside the main entrance.
In 1934 he spent a year in postgraduate study in the United States and Canada, partly at the Mayo Clinic, returning with many new ideas about surgery and patient care. His wider community service is indicated by his membership of the Rotary Club of Christchurch in 1939, and his appointment as a lay canon of Christchurch cathedral in 1943. (The latter position he held until shortly before his death.) In 1944 he became a member of the North Canterbury Hospital Board, and served as chairman from 1956 to 1974. This was a period of significant growth in Christchurch’s medical services, with the completion of Princess Margaret Hospital and the opening of the Christchurch Clinical School.
Elected a fellow of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists in 1942, Averill became a chairman of its New Zealand council in 1951. He was president of the New Zealand Branch of the British Medical Association the same year. He took a close interest in Christ’s College, as president of the old boys’ association (1944 and 1957) and a fellow (1955–67). He was also a member of the board of governors of Christchurch College (formerly College House) from 1957 to 1975. In 1956 he became president of the Christchurch Blood Transfusion Service and vice president of the Hospital Boards’ Association of New Zealand, and held both offices for nearly 20 years.
Averill was appointed a CMG in 1961 for outstanding services to medicine and the community, and in 1968 the town of Le Quesnoy appointed him Citoyen d’honneur. In 1960 he was founding president of the Canterbury Medical Research Foundation, and from 1965 to 1974 he was a member of the Hospitals Advisory Council. He retired from general practice at the age of 70, and later began writing the history of St George’s Hospital. In 1973 the government of France appointed him a chevalier de la Légion d’honneur, and on a visit to Le Quesnoy in 1977 a new school and a street were named after him. In addition to two years as chairman of the Christchurch Clinical School council, he was involved in the Outward Bound Trust of New Zealand and was a member of the Lepers’ Trust Board. He died in Christchurch on 4 June 1981, survived by his wife and four children.
Averill’s obituaries paid tribute to him as a devout churchman and a dedicated physician, but failed to mention that he had a lifelong struggle to overcome an intense natural shyness. Always an optimist, he sought to bring out the best in those with whom he worked, even, at times, his opponents on the hospital board. He was a man of undoubted ability, quick decision and absolute integrity, respected by his colleagues and loved by his family. Once committed to a policy or decision, he could be single-minded in its pursuit, yet staff always found him a genial and supportive leader. For over 40 years he was a key figure in Christchurch’s hospital services and one of the city’s best-known medical men.

NFN:
I don't know about you lot, but I love these stories makes me proud to be a kiwi. Our present day public (and sometimes personal) role models have let us down. Not all, but most are so obsessed with the sound of their own voice, and self serving.
When in doubt, look to the past and see what a kiwi can be.
Have a good day
