2023.03.25 04:36 PappyStrangeLife The Man from Capernaum

God said to Abraham, "Kill me a son"
Abe say, "Man, you must be puttin' me on"
God say, "No, " Abe say, "What?"
God say, "You can do what you want Abe, but
Next time you see me comin', you better run"
Abe said, "Where do you want this killin' done?"
God said, "Out on Highway 61"
The radio, a martyr’s relic from a bygone era, sounded half as faded as I was.
I reeked of vodka and middy weed. I didn’t care. This lonely stretch of highway belonged to no one as far as I was concerned, and you gambled taking the curves in the dark.
It was your fault if you choose to gamble with me. Least, that’s the way I saw it.
Texas felt so far away.
Well, Cowboy Dan's a major player in the cowboy scene
He goes to the reservation, drinks and gets mean
And he's gonna start a war
He's gonna start a warrrrrr
And he hops in his pickup
Puts his pedal to the floor
And says, "I got mine
But I want more"
Because Cowboy Dan's a major player in the cowboy scene
He goes to the reservation, drinks and gets mean
He goes to the desert, fires his rifle in the sky
And says, "God, if I have to die, you will have to die"
I hacked up what felt like part of a lung. My hand was stained, the oxidized rust of old blood mixed with a fresh coat of red, a fresco that highlighted a life poorly lived.
Wait.
What happened to Bob Dylan?
Or was it Johnny Cash?
Wasn’t I just listening…
Gaps in time. I prayed I hadn’t taken the ketamine.
That was for later.
If you want proof time is just a strongly worded opinion, just slip into a k-hole.
That was for later.
My eyelids felt heavy.
There were no stars.
Endless pines, only shadowy outlines in the dark, still cover for the night’s starving predators, were all I could make out.
I just guessed at where the road kinked and turned and straightened.
I was playing a game with God, and I wanted to lose.
I wanted us all to lose.
“Dance, Dance to the radio
While the, Devil takes control,
Dance, Dance to the radio,
While the, Devil takes control…”
The warm hug of oblivion, a feeling like endless cookies and Saturday morning cartoons, began slipping its infinite arms around me.
Come and See, and I saw.
It was still the witching hour when I woke with a startled gasp. I could feel the claws of need, withdrawal, dragging up my arms, burrowing into my skin, making the back of my eyeballs vibrate.
Every day the need grew stronger, and every day, I killed off a little bit more of me.
One is too many, and a thousand is never enough.
I was in a ditch.
This wasn’t new or news. I tended to wake up in a lot of ditches. Beats Motel 6. Fewer roaches and you could smoke in every room.
My truck wouldn’t start.
Not even the wheezing gasps of a machine trying to cling to artificial life. Just a click and utter silence.
The battery couldn’t be dead. I checked my watch.
5:55 A.M.
I figured I’d tried to hit the eternal snooze button around 3 A.M. It had only been a few hours. Battery should be fine.
A cursory inspection showed no external damage. No blown tires, no misbegotten wires or missing spark plugs. Hell, it seemed like I’d just slowly cruised into this dark little corner of the universe.
It was as though the truck just gave up the ghost and said, "I’m done." The thirsty horse dropping to the ground in an endless desert, done with the death march.
I bear crawled up the small ravine and onto the highway.
A generous term for a lonely road in whatever the Hell backwater burg America had shit out here.
All I could see were outlines in the dark.
Fitting, I thought.
And then an explosion stole my vision.
Let there be light.
And there was.
And it was good.
Especially good.
Because it was a bar.
A ramshackle of a spot, dive joint meets biker meth hangout, from the looks of it, and it was just powering up.
Shit, if you couldn’t drink on Sunday morning, were we really free? Were we really God’s children at all?
I started ambling toward the light, my eyes adjusting to the deep gloom.
“The Man from Capernaum.”
Hell of a name for a spot in the middle of BFE.
Hell of a name.
Hell.
Hell, I needed a drink.
My watch read 6 a.m. but it was 5 o’clock somewhere, and this place had electricity buzzing it had to pay for and didn’t much strike me as the sort of establishment that probably saw the law as anything more than a nuisance.
I sauntered up to the door, my black boots clicking loudly against the rotten wooden porch.
Into the lion’s den we go.
Unsurprisingly, it was empty as a church on Friday night. Why kill the Son if you can’t have the sin, after all?
But it was unlocked and music was softly crooning from somewhere.
“As I went down in the river to pray
Studying about that Good Ol’ Way
And who shall wear the robe and crown
Good Lord, show me the way”
Fantastic. No bartender and proselyting in a shit joint. That’s just what my migraine and itchy skin called for.
I considered hopping the bar and grabbing a bottle of Jack Daniel’s, but this struck me as a place where your head might become acquainted with a shotgun right quick and nobody would kick up much fuss.
I was going out, a lamb among wolves, but on my terms. I’d had enough violence. I wanted to feel the void swallow me whole, not feel a hole swallow my head.
Plopping down on an empty stool, I risked lighting up a smoke. Certainly they wouldn’t get bent out of shape over a cowboy killer or two.
And shit, who was there to kick up dirt anyway? A ghost town without the spirits, save the ones just behind the bar and out of reach.
The tantalizing fruit in the garden.
God, I need a cold one, now.
“Till armageddon no shalam, no shalom
Then the Father Hen will call His chickens home
The wise man will bow down before the throne
And at His feet they'll cast their golden crowns
When The Man comes around”
The hairs on my arm stood up.
That wasn’t the gentle croon of some A.M. gospel channel. That was someone singin’ in the bar.
In the furthest stool at the left end of the bar, a wild looking man sat, intermittently taking greedy gulps of amber beer and singing loudly, his other arm flailing frenetically as though conducting an unseen orchestra.
Ah, good, a ninja crackhead. That’s just what I need.
He looked over at me and I leapt from my chair and damn near outta my boots.
Ancient as the hills, this man looked like he’d just come down the mountain from communing with the darkness itself.
God damn.
A wild, grey, patchy beard splayed out in every direction, as though the hair itself was trying to escape the vessel that grew it.
The crown of his head was bald but the rest was shaggy white hair, matted in some places, errantly sticking up in others, as though it couldn’t choose between electrocution and submission.
He wore what looked like a white robe, but it was stained with all manner of mess. Copper, brown, yellow, black. Blood, shit, piss, and Heaven only knows what. A fetid robe of many colors.
Tattered, rudimentary sandals held in dirty feet with long, yellowed toenails.
The man reeked worse than sulfur. Worse than death. It was like the pungent stank of the human stain clung to him with reckless abandon.
He was chubby and withered and maddened.
But none of that held a penny to his eyes.
Orbs of the purest white, ringed with seared, blackened flesh around the edges.
Nothing but endless, empty white that somehow felt like it saw nothing but what we all couldn’t see. Nothing of this world but everything we hide in it. Our lies, the horrors behind the masks, what we do in the dark, this tattered, horrible amalgam we have the audacity to still call “a soul.”
Fuck this.
I went to run but found I had no will to do so.
My boots had become one with the earth, like the leather was finally gonna join the cattle that had to die for me to feel like a man.
A crash of thunder stole my hearing, a tiny whirlwind began lifting and smashing bottles from behind the bar.
The seals of the bottles came open, spraying spirits everywhere.
The bar was alight with white fire and a light blasted through the bar that would embarrass the Sun.
Then all was silent and still.
“Nice hooves,” the man said in a velvety baritone.
I looked down at my black boots and back up at him.
There is probably a drug cocktail somewhere in existence where, if mixed properly and taken with utter scientific precision, probably unlocks the gates to Heaven in the human consciousness.
I think I might have found the one’s that unlocked Hell’s.
The man wore a wide, warm grin. Authentic and inviting, the jovial visage of every TV grandfather. Creature comfort. He no longer looked like a raving maniac.
Far from it.
The man was now young, maybe late 20’s.
Golden, feathered locks elegantly curved just behind his ears.
A black cardigan, dark jeans, and new Grecian sandals graced a well-kept temple, a body of with seemingly perfect porcelain skin.
Sapphire blue eyes, pools of painful beauty, the kind that feels like a knife twisting your gut, looked at me with compassion.
I could smell lilac and some spice that seemed reminiscent of a world long gone by but made me what want to curl up with a blanket and read a good book by the fire wafted my way.
A single, marred tattoo of a small cross ran down the index finger of his left hand.
The man sat down and said, “why don’t you and them hooves join me, Pappy?”
I go by a lot of names to keep myself safe in this shithole world, but I hadn’t gone by my real name since I beat a kid black and blue in elementary school for mocking me for it and my daddy had told me he was proud of me. Put a cigarette out on the back of my neck later that same night after a few too many for causing trouble.
The duality of man or whatever the Hell the academics prattle on about, I guess.
“They’re boots,” I snarled, playing at bravery, bluffing like I did every day of this wasted life, hopin’ it might but him back on his heels.
I didn’t know if I was messing with some damned creature not of this world or was just higher than a kite and seeing nonsense. While the latter seemed far more likely, I wanted to prepare for the former.
“Sure,” he said kindly, “sure.”
I sat down on the tattered stool.
“Where’s the bartender? And how the Hell do you know my name?”
“Calm down, son. You look like you could use a drink of the old blood. Sure beats those poisons you keep sticking in that body we gave ya.”
A wine glass appeared before each of us, filled to the brim. The man, or whatever it was, sipped away, humming some forgotten hymnal.
“I ain’t much of a vino fan. Got any Irish whisky?”
He lifted his glass as though to toast me and said “Sure. And you certainly will need that later. For now, the grapes of wrath, as it were.” A soft chuckle left his lips.
I sipped the wine. No sense bucking the bull when you don’t know how big or angry it really is.
It tasted like nothing I had ever had before. An indescribable, wicked deliciousness.
It warmed me up and filled me with light and hope and covered up all the dark holes that had punched through me by others.
Even plugged the ones I’d punched myself.
“We?”
The man took a small sip. “Sorry?”
“You said ‘the body *we* gave ya. *We*.”
It was only then I noticed he was crying.
There were no sobs, no audible gasps, no tremors or shakes, just slow, steady tears of blood dripping from those perfect blue orbs.
“Name’s Arah. I’m an Angel.”
Arah downed the goblet of wine, flecks of his bloody tears caking the glass’s rim.
“Behold, I send an angel before you to guard you on the way and to bring you to the place that I have prepared.”
This obvious machination of my drug addled brain chuckled louder this time, a slight slur and anger tinging his words.
“I’m even less for all that religious babble than I am for wine. Though this shit’s pretty damn good, I gotta admit.”
“LIAR!” Arah screamed, shaking the whole bar. His eyes were wide and obsidian and his chest heaved heavily.
“Liar.” This, a quiet whisper.
“You spent your whole life in church.
You soaked up every hopeful word, every promise of redemption and fixing, and the truth of that still rattles around inside you.
You can stick all the needles you want into that arm so you can lie to yourself and take away the pain you were meant to bear, but you can’t lie to me. We see everything, for we are many.”
Arah refreshed his glass with a small flourish of his hand before downing it again, his disposition getting slightly wobblier.
“DRINK!” he screamed, and when the world stopped shaking and those eyes turned blue again, I sure as shit started pounding the fermented fruit.
Ain't the time to be picky.
“You aren’t having a bad trip. I'm having a bad trip.”
The endless tears of blood fell quicker, like a swift red river coursing from a deep blue waterfall.
Small pools of it began forming of the bar. A slight acrid smell was on the air, barely noticeable behind all the wonderful aromas.
I felt warm and real and firm. I felt human again. My glass had been refilled and I downed another.
Okay, so I was getting wasted with an angel. Admittedly a first, even for my winding and warped road, but getting blitzed on Jesus Juice sure beat pissing off some emotionally unhinged cherub motherfucker.
“I can’t find Him. I can never find Him.”
Slight groans left Arah’s lips and he gulped down another glass.
With a minor twitch, the glass flew and smashed against the wall.
A nanosecond, if even, after the sound of shattering, it reappeared anew, full of the deep blood wine, before him, and he slurped it down his gullet.
I was trying to keep pace with him.
Shit I could drink a fifth of whisky and make it home alive but something in this good good had me slippin’. A part of me knew I should be petrified to ask, but the rest of me was too faded to care.
“Find who? What brings you here, cryin’ tears in yer beers?”
Now I was the one slurring.
“Take them.”
I looked down at the bar.
A belt. A syringe full of something brown and beautiful.
All the gear.
And six shots of what I prayed was Jameson.
“But where sin increased, grace abounded all the more.”
Arah was slurring hard now, slowly spinning in his chair, laughing and crying.
“Have a taste. At least there’ still manna.”
I shot the whole thing and downed that beautiful Irish whisky. Warmth and light filled me up and stole me away from this putrid rock.
Somehow, as wrecked as I was, I felt I could see Arah all the clearer, like the Sun pushing out the remnants of a storm. His hands looked withered, and those blue eyes looked heavy and tired.
“I miss Him. God. Father.”
I began to mumble some apocryphal question, but a raised hand silenced me.
“We’re taking communion here, son, an act of contrition, of grief, celebration and loss. I’m not giving about to give you a seminar on the finer points of how you all bungled what we gave you and called it ‘religion.’ Just shut the fuck up and drink.”
We downed a glass of wine in unison, a broken human and clearly a broken angel, performing a ritual at the alter we were left with.
“You wanna know why I’m here drinkin’? I know you do. I can hear it rattling around in that little rat brain of yours, gnawing, gnawing, gnawing.
Well, here’s why. GOD LEFT.
You remember your Bible.
Like a schizophrenic mother when the voices just crept too far in, he drowned all his children in the bathtub. He felt regret.
You apes can’t come to terms with the fact that it isn’t cognitive dissonance to be perfect and make mistakes. Your binaries and absolutes are the pathetic crutches you rest on, the prisons you build for yourselves. You think you live in the grey but you don’t. You are the simple minded mistake of something far greater than you could possibly fathom.
Hell ain't nothin' but a door locked from the inside.
He was right to drown all of you, ya know.
You’re an abortion that didn’t take.
You’re the science experiment gone wrong.
You’re the motherfucking poisonous residue left over when the manufacturing process goes the slightest bit awry.
He TRIED. He gave you EVERYTHING. And you chased him away.
He wanted to put you all down. Wipe the slate clean. Shoot the wolf with the broken leg caught in the trap. Mercy. But He had made those fuckin’ rainbows, and He kept his word.
You all sit and pout and scream and gnaw and gnash and blow each other up. Always the same shit in this horrible flat circle.
"My god is real, your god is fake! "
You never once consider you’re all talking about the same damn thing, and more to the point, you're spend your entire lives debating His existence. What a catastrophic waste to be so far from the mark.
Is He real? Is He a fairy tale?
Is there a big bearded man with a sword in the sky or is it just what some primitive apes told themselves to explain the lights in the night sky, a mechanism of control and purpose in an entropic and meaningless world?”
I felt frozen listening to Arah rant.
Somewhere, between the distant sound of brutal words, I heard that radio kick on.
The Third Planet is sure that they’re being watched
By an Eye in the Sky that can’t be stopped
And when you get to the Promised Land
You’re gonna shake the Eye’s hand”
“You won’t.”
Arah spoke quietly and sipped and audibly sobbed.
“I…I won’t what?”
“Shake his hand. He’s GONE.
You all fight with words and books and swords and shells and atoms about whether he exists. It’s your relentless, simpleminded addiction to dichotomy. It would be so boring if it wasn’t so sickening.
You think He exists, and if He does, He is here and He loves you and hears your stupid little prayers about football and bone cancer and bank accounts and AIDS.
And if He doesn’t exist, well, it’s just a bunch of conmen working over some fools with a fairy tale.
Any of you shitbirds ever consider He exists and LOATHES you? That he cut the cord to that existential phone line and ain’t nobody on the other side of that line anymore?
You live in an infinite universe that is forever exploding and expanding. He exists outside of even that.
You think you’re special? You’re one tiny experiment among so fucking many, I couldn’t make the smartest mathematician in the history of this planet understand how infinitesimally numerically irrelevant you are.
The question isn’t, is God real or is it all a hoax, a self-delusion?
The salient question, Pappy, is whether He’s here. And He ain’t.
He kept his word and let you all live and fester and replicate and mutate like the virus you are. The fruit that ate itself.
But daddy split. Went out for smokes and He ain’t never coming back. Moved onto a new family. Just like He's done again and again and again. And I'm guessing will keep doing 'till He decides He got it right. Ain’t been here for a long time. Long, long time.”
6 glasses of wine appeared before Arah and he downed them all with lightning speed, spewing blood, sobbing and gasping and drinking.
His hair greyed and whitened and fell to the floor.
His nails began to decay and yellow.
The smell of shit and piss and bile crept up and began to make me nauseous.
“And you know who got really fucked? US. The angels.
God gave us instructions and we followed it. We knew what we had and we didn’t deviate. We did our duty. And He left us behind, too.”
Arah’s clothes began to whiten and dirty.
The enrapturing blue of his eyes began to fade, growing paler and lifeless. A wild, twisted beard and belly began to sprout.
“Then it goes and takes along with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there; and the last state of that man becomes worse than the first. That is the way it will also be with this evil generation."
Arah began shrieking.
"Fucking humans.
I AM AN ANGEL OF THE LORD YOUR GOD, AND I AM BOUND FOREVER TO THIS SHITHOLE OF A ROCK, ENDLESSLY SEARCHING THE COSMOS FOR A FATHER I CAN NEVER FIND, TRAPPED IN A PRISON I CAN NEVER LEAVE, FOR A CRIME I DIDN’T COMMIT.
YOU ALL DID THIS.
YOU ALL DID THIS.
YOU DID THIS.”
Arah leapt up and grabbed me by the throat, lifting me on high.
Fire scorched his eyes, leaving empty pale pools singed to a blackened crisp at the edges.
The wild, infested thing I’d seen before held me as though I weighed less than the judgment feather.
He was sobbing.
“I…I just did what I was told.
Do you know what Hell is? There’s no fucking lake of fire or torture rack with goats.
It’s this.
An endless existence having tasted God’s grace and love and then forever being separated from it, eternally searching for that one drug you know you can never find.
'Abashed the devil stood and felt how awful goodness is and saw Virtue in her shape how lovely: and pined his loss.'
This, this place, is Hell.”
All the opium in the world couldn’t save me from the stark terror of this celestial’s tortured judgment.
I was quaking and pissed myself.
“Now I got ya shakin’ in your boots. Nice hooves.”
He threw me and I slammed against the wall and I felt every ounce of wine and heroin and whisky spill out of my body and onto the floor.
In that moment, I felt the unmitigated suffering of absolute sobriety, and I’ve been sober every moment since.
This wild, unfettered thing inched closer to me.
It was only then I noticed the tattoo on his finger more closely. It was…clearer to me now. Everything was. That little cross on his finger was upside down as it faced me.
“What does your name mean, Arah? What did you do that made God leave all his angels behind?”
Arah opened his mouth and two snakes, one a viper, the other a colorful coral, slid out of his mouth and began encircling his head and neck, never striking, never squeezing, simply coiling infinitely.
“YOU FUCKING APES. I’LL RIP THE SOUL OUT OF EACH OF YOU AND EAT IT FOR LIFE ETERNAL.”
Arah, this manifestation of man’s worst nightmare, leapt at me, blood spewing, snakes dancing, the bar shaking and burning and reeking.
Alas, Babylon, for me.
Inches from me Arah froze, held still by some unseen force, his mouth snarling words that only came out as unintelligible, wet squelches.
A voice from the bar’s door whispered a single word.
“World.
In the first tongue, 'Arah' meant ‘World.’
At the door stood an older black woman with the kindest eyes I’d ever seen.
She wore a bracelet of thorns and a dress made of every flower my mind could conceive.
Golden eyes flecked with amber looked at me lovingly.
She quietly sauntered up to Arah and shook her head wistfully, a disapproving but loving mother wishing her child would just behave.
“You would do well to accept your place here, Arah. The Father may be gone, but this is where you and your lot stay. It was not man’s fall that bound you here.
Tell him what you did...Angel.”
Arah fell suddenly to the barroom floor, all the strength clearly sucked out of him.
“I..I did what I was told. I followed the orders I was given. It was for Him, Uriel.”
Uriel tutted her tongue as though an impudent child had told her a silly, obvious fib.
“You can lie to yourself all you want, Arah, but you cannot lie to me.
You, who whispered endlessly to Herod.
You, who dwelt in Caligula.
You, who served Qin Shi Huang.
You, who sought refuge in Robespierre .
You, who possessed Mengele.
‘And the angels who did not keep their positions of authority but abandoned their proper dwelling—these he has kept in darkness, bound with everlasting chains for judgment on the great Day.”
Uriel helped me to my feet, brushed me off, and lightly put her hand on her cheek. It was the only moment in my life I knew what the word “home” meant.
“And you won’t lie to Man, either.
You remember the deal you begged for, Arah? Let remind you:
'They began to entreat Him, saying, “If You are going to cast us out, send us into the herd of swine.'
You had the gall to call his creation, however staggeringly imperfect, swine.
You got what you asked for, then.
And you will have it for all time.
Get behind me.”
Uriel picked me up as though I were a mere baby and carried me to my truck. She laid me gently in the passenger side and started the engine.
The radio kicked on.
I’m a rolling stone
All alone and lost
For a life of sin
I have paid the cost
Take my advice
Or you’ll curse the day
You started rollin’ down
That Lost Highway”
As she pulled away, I looked back at The Man from Capernaum one last time.
It was consumed in fire and the squeals of pigs shrieking carried through the cool night air.
“Do not pity him.
‘You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons.’
God may have left this world but let the Demon burn.”

2023.03.25 03:24 exoskeleton314 4090 Build Advice

Hello!
It's been about six years since my last build, and I was hoping for some advice on a new parts list. I did a fair amount of research, but I wasn't sure how to navigate the differences between some of the components - motherboards, power supplies, and different versions of the GPU especially. I'm not sure if some of these choices are suboptimal, or if they cost a lot more for a very marginal upgrade over a replacement component (...maybe that's a ridiculous thing to say about a 4090 build).
I'm a little worried about temperature generally too. Would a somewhat toned-down build like this be notably different in that respect?
I would appreciate any advice!

2023.03.25 03:19 LoneRaiderF76 I went to visit family out of state, but before I left I downloaded the recent Fallout 76 update with Mutated Events and I would play it when I got back. I just got home today, hopped on my console... and mutated events are gone.

3-4 Weeks is not enough time, the very same thing angered me about Nuka-World On Tour Events being hourly but then time passes and then they were in the massive random events pool. I guess I'll just enjoy some more Tea Time!

Satire is a technique in art and literature that pokes fun at established artistic or cultural norms. Satirists practice their craft for the sake of social criticism, comedy, or, often, both. The different satire genres include spoof, parody, and classic literary satire techniques.

Definition of satire
1: a literary work holding up human vices and follies to ridicule or scorn
2: trenchant wit, irony, or sarcasm used to expose and discredit vice or folly
https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/satire

The Culinary Roots of Satire
Satire came into English at the beginning of the 16th century, and the meaning of the word has not strayed very far from its original sense. The initial uses were primarily applied to poems, and the term now has a broader applicability. Satire has a semantic and etymological overlap with both farce and lampoon. Farce ("a light dramatic composition marked by broadly satirical comedy and improbable plot") came into English as a synonym for forcemeat, meaning "finely chopped and highly seasoned meat or fish that is either served alone or used as a stuffing." Lampoon ("a harsh satire usually directed against an individual") is thought to come from the French lampons!, meaning "let us guzzle!" And satire is believed to trace back to the Latin satur, meaning "well-fed."

Examples of satire in a Sentence
By contrast, Martial's friend, Juvenal, learned to transmute Martial's epigrammatic wit into savage satire. Juvenal's fierce, if occasionally obscene, tirades against immorality fit easily into the propaganda of the new era.
— G. W. Bowersock, New York Review of Books, 26 Feb. 2009
Unlike late-night talk shows that traffic in Hollywood interviews and stupid pet tricks, "The Daily Show" is a fearless social satire. Not many comedy shows would dare do five minutes on the intricacies of medicare or a relentlessly cheeky piece on President George W. Bush's Thanksgiving trip to Iraq …
— Marc Peyser, Newsweek, 29 Dec. 2003 - 5 Jan. 2004

In fiction and less frequently in non-fiction, satire is a genre of literature and performing arts, in which vices, follies, abuses and shortcomings are held up to ridicule, ideally with the intent of shaming individuals, corporations, government, or society itself into improvement.[1] Although satire is usually meant to be humorous, its greater purpose is often constructive social criticism, using wit to draw attention to both particular and wider issues in society.

A feature of satire is strong irony or sarcasm —"in satire, irony is militant", according to literary critic Northrup Frye—[2] but parody, burlesque, exaggeration,[3] juxtaposition, comparison, analogy, and double entendre are all frequently used in satirical speech and writing. This "militant" irony or sarcasm often professes to approve of (or at least accept as natural) the very things the satirist wishes to question.

Satire is nowadays found in many artistic forms of expression, including internet memes, literature, plays, commentary, television shows, and media such as lyrics.

Etymology and roots
The word satire comes from the Latin word satur and the subsequent phrase lanx satura. Satur meant "full" but the juxtaposition with lanx shifted the meaning to "miscellany or medley": the expression lanx satura literally means "a full dish of various kinds of fruits".[4]

The word satura as used by Quintilian, however, was used to denote only Roman verse satire, a strict genre that imposed hexameter form, a narrower genre than what would be later intended as satire.[4][5] Quintilian famously said that satura, that is a satire in hexameter verses, was a literary genre of wholly Roman origin (satura tota nostra est). He was aware of and commented on Greek satire, but at the time did not label it as such, although today the origin of satire is considered to be Aristophanes' Old Comedy. The first critic to use the term "satire" in the modern broader sense was Apuleius.[4]

To Quintilian, the satire was a strict literary form, but the term soon escaped from the original narrow definition. Robert Elliott writes:

As soon as a noun enters the domain of metaphor, as one modern scholar has pointed out, it clamours for extension; and satura (which had had no verbal, adverbial, or adjectival forms) was immediately broadened by appropriation from the Greek word for “satyr” (satyros) and its derivatives. The odd result is that the English “satire” comes from the Latin satura; but "satirize", "satiric", etc., are of Greek origin. By about the 4th century AD the writer of satires came to be known as satyricus; St. Jerome, for example, was called by one of his enemies 'a satirist in prose' ('satyricus scriptor in prosa'). Subsequent orthographic modifications obscured the Latin origin of the word satire: satura becomes satyra, and in England, by the 16th century, it was written 'satyre.'[1]

The word satire derives from satura, and its origin was not influenced by the Greek mythological figure of the satyr.[6] In the 17th century, philologist Isaac Casaubon was the first to dispute the etymology of satire from satyr, contrary to the belief up to that time.[7]

Humour
“ The rules of satire are such that it must do more than make you laugh. No matter how amusing it is, it doesn't count unless you find yourself wincing a little even as you chuckle.[8] ”
Laughter is not an essential component of satire;[9] in fact there are types of satire that are not meant to be "funny" at all. Conversely, not all humour, even on such topics as politics, religion or art is necessarily "satirical", even when it uses the satirical tools of irony, parody, and burlesque.

Even light-hearted satire has a serious "after-taste": the organizers of the Ig Nobel Prize describe this as "first make people laugh, and then make them think".[10]

Social and psychological functions
Satire and irony in some cases have been regarded as the most effective source to understand a society, the oldest form of social study.[11] They provide the keenest insights into a group's collective psyche, reveal its deepest values and tastes, and the society's structures of power.[12][13] Some authors have regarded satire as superior to non-comic and non-artistic disciplines like history or anthropology.[11][14][15][16] In a prominent example from ancient Greece, philosopher Plato, when asked by a friend for a book to understand Athenian society, referred him to the plays of Aristophanes.[17][18]

Historically, satire has satisfied the popular need to debunk and ridicule the leading figures in politics, economy, religion and other prominent realms of power.[19] Satire confronts public discourse and the collective imaginary, playing as a public opinion counterweight to power (be it political, economic, religious, symbolic, or otherwise), by challenging leaders and authorities. For instance, it forces administrations to clarify, amend or establish their policies. Satire's job is to expose problems and contradictions, and it's not obligated to solve them.[20] Karl Kraus set in the history of satire a prominent example of a satirist role as confronting public discourse.[21]

For its nature and social role, satire has enjoyed in many societies a special freedom license to mock prominent individuals and institutions.[22] The satiric impulse, and its ritualized expressions, carry out the function of resolving social tension.[23] Institutions like the ritual clowns, by giving expression to the antisocial tendencies, represent a safety valve which re-establishes equilibrium and health in the collective imaginary, which are jeopardized by the repressive aspects of society.[24][25]

The state of political satire in a given society reflects the tolerance or intolerance that characterizes it,[19] and the state of civil liberties and human rights. Under totalitarian regimes any criticism of a political system, and especially satire, is suppressed. A typical example is the Soviet Union where the dissidents, such as Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn and Andrei Sakharov were under strong pressure from the government. While satire of everyday life in the USSR was allowed, the most prominent satirist being Arkady Raikin, political satire existed in the form of anecdotes[26] that made fun of Soviet political leaders, especially Brezhnev, famous for his narrow-mindedness and love for awards and decorations.

Classifications
Satire is a diverse genre which is complex to classify and define, with a wide range of satiric "modes".[27][28]

Horatian, Juvenalian, Menippean

"Le satire e l'epistole di Q. Orazio Flacco", printed in 1814.
Satirical literature can commonly be categorized as either Horatian, Juvenalian, or Menippean.[29]

Horatian
Horatian satire, named for the Roman satirist Horace (65–8 BCE), playfully criticizes some social vice through gentle, mild, and light-hearted humour. Horace (Quintus Horatius Flaccus) wrote Satires to gently ridicule the dominant opinions and "philosophical beliefs of ancient Rome and Greece" (Rankin).[30] Rather than writing in harsh or accusing tones, he addressed issues with humor and clever mockery. Horatian satire follows this same pattern of "gently [ridiculing] the absurdities and follies of human beings" (Drury).[31]

It directs wit, exaggeration, and self-deprecating humour toward what it identifies as folly, rather than evil. Horatian satire's sympathetic tone is common in modern society.[32]

A Horatian satirist's goal is to heal the situation with smiles, rather than by anger. Horatian satire is a gentle reminder to take life less seriously and evokes a wry smile.[31] A Horatian satirist makes fun of general human folly rather than engaging in specific or personal attacks. Shamekia Thomas suggests, "In a work using Horatian satire, readers often laugh at the characters in the story who are the subject of mockery as well as themselves and society for behaving in those ways." Alexander Pope has been established as an author whose satire "heals with morals what it hurts with wit" (Green).[33] Alexander Pope—and Horatian satire—attempt to teach.

Examples of Horatian satire:

The Ig Nobel Prizes.
Bierce, Ambrose, The Devil's Dictionary.
Defoe, Daniel, The True-Born Englishman.
The Savoy Operas of Gilbert and Sullivan.
Trollope, Anthony, The Way We Live Now.
Gogol, Nikolai, Dead Souls.
Groening, Matthew "Matt", The Simpsons.
Lewis, Clive Staples, The Screwtape Letters.
Mercer, Richard ‘Rick’, The Rick Mercer Report.
More, Thomas, Utopia
Pope, Alexander, The Rape of the Lock.
Reiner, Rob, This Is Spinal Tap.
Twain, Mark, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.
Ralston Saul, John, The Doubter's Companion: A Dictionary of Aggressive Common Sense.
Juvenalian
See also: Satires of Juvenal
Juvenalian satire, named for the writings of the Roman satirist Juvenal (late first century – early second century AD), is more contemptuous and abrasive than the Horatian. Juvenal disagreed with the opinions of the public figures and institutions of the Republic and actively attacked them through his literature. "He utilized the satirical tools of exaggeration and parody to make his targets appear monstrous and incompetent" (Podzemny).[34] Juvenal's satire follows this same pattern of abrasively ridiculing societal structures. Juvenal also, unlike Horace, attacked public officials and governmental organizations through his satires, regarding their opinions as not just wrong, but evil.

Following in this tradition, Juvenalian satire addresses perceived social evil through scorn, outrage, and savage ridicule. This form is often pessimistic, characterized by the use of irony, sarcasm, moral indignation and personal invective, with less emphasis on humor. Strongly polarized political satire can often be classified as Juvenalian.

A Juvenal satirist's goal is generally to provoke some sort of political or societal change because he sees his opponent or object as evil or harmful.[35] A Juvenal satirist mocks "societal structure, power, and civilization" (Thomas)[36] by exaggerating the words or position of his opponent in order to jeopardize their opponent's reputation and/or power. Jonathan Swift has been established as an author who "borrowed heavily from Juvenal's techniques in [his critique] of contemporary English society" (Podzemny).[34]

Examples of Juvenalian satire:

Barnes, Julian, England, England.
Beatty, Paul, The Sellout.
Bradbury, Ray, Fahrenheit 451.
Brooker, Charlie, Black Mirror.
Bulgakov, Mikhail, Heart of a Dog.
Burgess, Anthony, A Clockwork Orange.
Burroughs, William, Naked Lunch.
Byron, George Gordon, Lord, Don Juan.
Barth, John, The Sot-Weed Factor; or, A Voyage to Maryland,—a satire, in which is described the laws, government, courts, and constitutions of the country, and also the buildings, feasts, frolics, entertainments, and drunken humors of the inhabitants in that part of America.
Ellis, Bret Easton, American Psycho.
Golding, William, Lord of the Flies.
Hall, Joseph, Virgidemiarum.

Satire versus teasing
In the history of theatre there has always been a conflict between engagement and disengagement on politics and relevant issue, between satire and grotesque on one side, and jest with teasing on the other.[37] Max Eastman defined the spectrum of satire in terms of "degrees of biting", as ranging from satire proper at the hot-end, and "kidding" at the violet-end; Eastman adopted the term kidding to denote what is just satirical in form, but is not really firing at the target.[38] Nobel laureate satirical playwright Dario Fo pointed out the difference between satire and teasing (sfottò).[39] Teasing is the reactionary side of the comic; it limits itself to a shallow parody of physical appearance. The side-effect of teasing is that it humanizes and draws sympathy for the powerful individual towards which it is directed. Satire instead uses the comic to go against power and its oppressions, has a subversive character, and a moral dimension which draws judgement against its targets.[40][41][42][43] Fo formulated an operational criterion to tell real satire from sfottò, saying that real satire arouses an outraged and violent reaction, and that the more they try to stop you, the better is the job you are doing.[44] Fo contends that, historically, people in positions of power have welcomed and encouraged good-humoured buffoonery, while modern day people in positions of power have tried to censor, ostracize and repress satire.[37][40]

Teasing (sfottò) is an ancient form of simple buffoonery, a form of comedy without satire's subversive edge. Teasing includes light and affectionate parody, good-humoured mockery, simple one-dimensional poking fun, and benign spoofs. Teasing typically consists of an impersonation of someone monkeying around with his exterior attributes, tics, physical blemishes, voice and mannerisms, quirks, way of dressing and walking, and/or the phrases he typically repeats. By contrast, teasing never touches on the core issue, never makes a serious criticism judging the target with irony; it never harms the target's conduct, ideology and position of power; it never undermines the perception of his morality and cultural dimension.[40][42] Sfottò directed towards a powerful individual makes him appear more human and draws sympathy towards him.[45] Hermann Göring propagated jests and jokes against himself, with the aim of humanizing his image.[46][47]

Classifications by topics
Types of satire can also be classified according to the topics it deals with. From the earliest times, at least since the plays of Aristophanes, the primary topics of literary satire have been politics, religion and sex.[48][49][50][51] This is partly because these are the most pressing problems that affect anybody living in a society, and partly because these topics are usually taboo.[48][52] Among these, politics in the broader sense is considered the pre-eminent topic of satire.[52] Satire which targets the clergy is a type of political satire, while religious satire is that which targets religious beliefs.[53] Satire on sex may overlap with blue comedy, off-color humor and dick jokes.

Scatology has a long literary association with satire,[48][54][55] as it is a classical mode of the grotesque, the grotesque body and the satiric grotesque.[48][56] Shit plays a fundamental role in satire because it symbolizes death, the turd being "the ultimate dead object".[54][55] The satirical comparison of individuals or institutions with human excrement, exposes their "inherent inertness, corruption and dead-likeness".[54][57][58] The ritual clowns of clown societies, like among the Pueblo Indians, have ceremonies with filth-eating.[59][60] In other cultures, sin-eating is an apotropaic rite in which the sin-eater (also called filth-eater),[61][62] by ingesting the food provided, takes "upon himself the sins of the departed".[63] Satire about death overlaps with black humor and gallows humor.

Another classification by topics is the distinction between political satire, religious satire and satire of manners.[64] Political satire is sometimes called topical satire, satire of manners is sometimes called satire of everyday life, and religious satire is sometimes called philosophical satire. Comedy of manners, sometimes also called satire of manners, criticizes mode of life of common people; political satire aims at behavior, manners of politicians, and vices of political systems. Historically, comedy of manners, which first appeared in British theater in 1620, has uncritically accepted the social code of the upper classes.[65] Comedy in general accepts the rules of the social game, while satire subverts them.[66]

Another analysis of satire is the spectrum of his possible tones: wit, ridicule, irony, sarcasm, cynicism, the sardonic and invective.[67][68]

The type of humour that deals with creating laughter at the expense of the person telling the joke is called reflexive humour[69].Reflexive humour can take place at dual levels of directing humour at self or at the larger community the self identifies with. The audience's understanding of the context of reflexive humour is important for its receptivity and success [69]. Satire is found not only in written literary forms. In preliterate cultures it manifests itself in ritual and folk forms, as well as in trickster tales and oral poetry.[23]

It appears also in graphic arts, music, sculpture, dance, cartoon strips, and graffiti. Examples are Dada sculptures, Pop Art works, music of Gilbert and Sullivan and Erik Satie, punk and rock music.[23] In modern media culture, stand-up comedy is an enclave in which satire can be introduced into mass media, challenging mainstream discourse.[23] Comedy roasts, mock festivals, and stand-up comedians in nightclubs and concerts are the modern forms of ancient satiric rituals.[23]

Development
Ancient Egypt

The satirical papyrus at the British Museum

Satirical ostracon showing a cat guarding geese, c.1120 BC, Egypt.

Figured ostracon showing a cat waiting on a mouse, Egypt
One of the earliest examples of what we might call satire, The Satire of the Trades,[70] is in Egyptian writing from the beginning of the 2nd millennium BC. The text's apparent readers are students, tired of studying. It argues that their lot as scribes is not only useful, but far superior to that of the ordinary man. Scholars such as Helck[71] think that the context was meant to be serious.

The Papyrus Anastasi I[72] (late 2nd millennium BC) contains a satirical letter which first praises the virtues of its recipient, but then mocks the reader's meagre knowledge and achievements.

Ancient Greece
The Greeks had no word for what later would be called "satire", although the terms cynicism and parody were used. Modern critics call the Greek playwright Aristophanes one of the best known early satirists: his plays are known for their critical political and societal commentary,[73] particularly for the political satire by which he criticized the powerful Cleon (as in The Knights). He is also notable for the persecution he underwent.[73][74][75][76] Aristophanes' plays turned upon images of filth and disease.[77] His bawdy style was adopted by Greek dramatist-comedian Menander. His early play Drunkenness contains an attack on the politician Callimedon.

The oldest form of satire still in use is the Menippean satire by Menippus of Gadara. His own writings are lost. Examples from his admirers and imitators mix seriousness and mockery in dialogues and present parodies before a background of diatribe. As in the case of Aristophanes plays, menippean satire turned upon images of filth and disease.[77]

Roman world
The first Roman to discuss satire critically was Quintilian, who invented the term to describe the writings of Gaius Lucilius. The two most prominent and influential ancient Roman satirists are Horace and Juvenal, who wrote during the early days of the Roman Empire. Other important satirists in ancient Latin are Gaius Lucilius and Persius. Satire in their work is much wider than in the modern sense of the word, including fantastic and highly coloured humorous writing with little or no real mocking intent. When Horace criticized Augustus, he used veiled ironic terms. In contrast, Pliny reports that the 6th-century-BC poet Hipponax wrote satirae that were so cruel that the offended hanged themselves.[78]

In the 2nd century AD, Lucian wrote True History, a book satirizing the clearly unrealistic travelogues/adventures written by Ctesias, Iambulus, and Homer. He states that he was surprised they expected people to believe their lies, and stating that he, like them, has no actual knowledge or experience, but shall now tell lies as if he did. He goes on to describe a far more obviously extreme and unrealistic tale, involving interplanetary exploration, war among alien life forms, and life inside a 200 mile long whale back in the terrestrial ocean, all intended to make obvious the fallacies of books like Indica and The Odyssey.

Medieval Islamic world
Main articles: Arabic satire and Persian satire
Medieval Arabic poetry included the satiric genre hija. Satire was introduced into Arabic prose literature by the author Al-Jahiz in the 9th century. While dealing with serious topics in what are now known as anthropology, sociology and psychology, he introduced a satirical approach, "based on the premise that, however serious the subject under review, it could be made more interesting and thus achieve greater effect, if only one leavened the lump of solemnity by the insertion of a few amusing anecdotes or by the throwing out of some witty or paradoxical observations. He was well aware that, in treating of new themes in his prose works, he would have to employ a vocabulary of a nature more familiar in hija, satirical poetry."[79] For example, in one of his zoological works, he satirized the preference for longer human penis size, writing: "If the length of the penis were a sign of honor, then the mule would belong to the (honorable tribe of) Quraysh". Another satirical story based on this preference was an Arabian Nights tale called "Ali with the Large Member".[80]

In the 10th century, the writer Tha'alibi recorded satirical poetry written by the Arabic poets As-Salami and Abu Dulaf, with As-Salami praising Abu Dulaf's wide breadth of knowledge and then mocking his ability in all these subjects, and with Abu Dulaf responding back and satirizing As-Salami in return.[81] An example of Arabic political satire included another 10th-century poet Jarir satirizing Farazdaq as "a transgressor of the Sharia" and later Arabic poets in turn using the term "Farazdaq-like" as a form of political satire.[82]

The terms "comedy" and "satire" became synonymous after Aristotle's Poetics was translated into Arabic in the medieval Islamic world, where it was elaborated upon by Islamic philosophers and writers, such as Abu Bischr, his pupil Al-Farabi, Avicenna, and Averroes. Due to cultural differences, they disassociated comedy from Greek dramatic representation and instead identified it with Arabic poetic themes and forms, such as hija (satirical poetry). They viewed comedy as simply the "art of reprehension", and made no reference to light and cheerful events, or troubled beginnings and happy endings, associated with classical Greek comedy. After the Latin translations of the 12th century, the term "comedy" thus gained a new semantic meaning in Medieval literature.[83]

Ubayd Zakani introduced satire in Persian literature during the 14th century. His work is noted for its satire and obscene verses, often political or bawdy, and often cited in debates involving homosexual practices. He wrote the Resaleh-ye Delgosha, as well as Akhlaq al-Ashraf ("Ethics of the Aristocracy") and the famous humorous fable Masnavi Mush-O-Gorbeh (Mouse and Cat), which was a political satire. His non-satirical serious classical verses have also been regarded as very well written, in league with the other great works of Persian literature. Between 1905 and 1911, Bibi Khatoon Astarabadi and other Iranian writers wrote notable satires.

Medieval Europe
In the Early Middle Ages, examples of satire were the songs by Goliards or vagants now best known as an anthology called Carmina Burana and made famous as texts of a composition by the 20th-century composer Carl Orff. Satirical poetry is believed to have been popular, although little has survived. With the advent of the High Middle Ages and the birth of modern vernacular literature in the 12th century, it began to be used again, most notably by Chaucer. The disrespectful manner was considered "unchristian" and ignored, except for the moral satire, which mocked misbehaviour in Christian terms. Examples are Livre des Manières by Étienne de Fougères [fr] (~1178), and some of Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. Sometimes epic poetry (epos) was mocked, and even feudal society, but there was hardly a general interest in the genre.

Early modern western satire

Pieter Bruegel's 1568 satirical painting The Blind Leading the Blind.
Direct social commentary via satire returned with a vengeance in the 16th century, when farcical texts such as the works of François Rabelais tackled more serious issues (and incurred the wrath of the crown as a result).

Two major satirists of Europe in the Renaissance were Giovanni Boccaccio and François Rabelais. Other examples of Renaissance satire include Till Eulenspiegel, Reynard the Fox, Sebastian Brant's Narrenschiff (1494), Erasmus's Moriae Encomium (1509), Thomas More's Utopia (1516), and Carajicomedia (1519).

The Elizabethan (i.e. 16th-century English) writers thought of satire as related to the notoriously rude, coarse and sharp satyr play. Elizabethan "satire" (typically in pamphlet form) therefore contains more straightforward abuse than subtle irony. The French Huguenot Isaac Casaubon pointed out in 1605 that satire in the Roman fashion was something altogether more civilised. Casaubon discovered and published Quintilian's writing and presented the original meaning of the term (satira, not satyr), and the sense of wittiness (reflecting the "dishfull of fruits") became more important again. Seventeenth-century English satire once again aimed at the "amendment of vices" (Dryden).

In the 1590s a new wave of verse satire broke with the publication of Hall's Virgidemiarum, six books of verse satires targeting everything from literary fads to corrupt noblemen. Although Donne had already circulated satires in manuscript, Hall's was the first real attempt in English at verse satire on the Juvenalian model.[84][page needed] The success of his work combined with a national mood of disillusion in the last years of Elizabeth's reign triggered an avalanche of satire—much of it less conscious of classical models than Hall's — until the fashion was brought to an

2023.03.25 02:22 CactusMike95 Punish and Crush Booking: Part 1: Old Man Punk

Build to Full Gear
After the events of All Out, MJF and CM Punk waste 0 time getting reacquainted. On the Dynamite after All Out, MJF announces his partnership with the Firm. He refers to the team as backup in the rare event he needs it. Punk interrupts the festivities to call MJF a little bitch who doesn’t know how to wrestle. This infuriates MJF as Punk lays insults on the Poker Chip holder. MJF throws back his own but finds himself struggling to combat the fact CM Punk has beat him. Punk eventually walks away but when he turns MJF jumps him by smacking him with the Poker Chip. He then viciously punches Punk while yelling “You're nothing but a useless old bastard trying to relive the glory days. He busts Punk open while The Firm fends off security from breaking up the assault.
After this brutal display of viciousness from MJF, CM Punk is sidelined with an injury as MJF continues to gloat about what he did to “Old Man Punk”. On social media Punk tweets about his want to come back but the doctors are not clearing him. This happens for 3 weeks until MJF pushes his luck. On the last episode of Dynamite in September he verbally berates Punk. He says he should be ashamed of himself because he had it all and let it all go away because of his own ego. MJF mocks Punk by saying “BooHoo, I don’t get to the Main Event, Vince’s pride and joy. I’ll never be the next Steve Austin. Well I guess I’ll go home and sit with my UGLY ASS DOG” With that MJF is jumped by someone who has jumped the barricade and that person is C.M Punk. Punk fights off Firm members while he attempts to attack a fleeing MJF. Finally, W. Morrisey is able to toss Punk out of the ring, while MJF escapes. This leads to MJF and Punk staring at each other through the ropes with nothing but the Firm and the ring separating them.
After this faithful September day, Punk seems to have tasted blood. He repeatedly jumps MJF backstage and in the ring resulting in brawls always broken up by the Firm. At one point Punk is interviewed and asked “Punk, why do you put yourself through this” Punk responds with “I understand holding this championship makes a lot of people hate me, I know that now I have more enemies than before, but this is a sacrifice, the target is on my back, the burden is on me, to guide AEW, to help, to truly help it, that's the only reason I came here, hell I don't even care about my relevancy, but I care about the people in the crowd, and the young on the back who are now dreaming the same dreams as me, i care about this business, what I'm doing is putting myself in the line of fire, everything, so this sport can live, you guys can enjoy, and the ones at the back can freely dream. I’m doing this so a cocky bastard can’t destroy everything that has been built.
In the final weeks of Dynamite MJF nicknames Punk “AEW’s John”. The two continue to brawl week after week with neither Punk showing zero quit despite The Firm isolating him. Week after week The Firm get the better of Punk after learning his ways and methods from his previous attacks. And week after week the fans expect Punk to be saved but thanks to all of the bridges he has burnt in the past no one helps him. On the Go-home show Stokely Hathoway, meets with MJF and infers that his group deserve a thank you. MJF never gives them that thank you. Meanwhile Punk looks like a shell of himself thanks to the weeks of abuse thrown his way.
Full Gear
CM Punk(C) vs MJF for the AEW World Heavyweight Championship
As soon as Punk enters the ring MJF jumps on him and slows the pace down. MJF dominates the beginnings of the match but Punk refuses to give up. Punk is able to weather the early attacks from MJF and the match becomes a back and forth affair. Towards the end of the match Punk’s body gives up on him. He struggles to stand and fight back while MJF continues the devastating attack. Punk gains a bit of separation as the ref checks his wellbeing. As this happens Stokley walks down the ramp and throws up two fingers. When he does Ethan Page low blows MJF as Morrissey Big Boots him. This allows Punk to pin Max. 1.2.3. However after seeing how he won he is ashamed of himself.
Fallout
After the Full Gear match that garners world wide praise, MJF is nowhere to be found. Rumors swirl about contract renegotiations but no one knows. Meanwhile MJF likes tweets from Roman Reigns and Paul Heyman.
Also Swerve in Our Glory retains the titles.

Hey folks!
I hope my within the subreddit rules of talking/asking about MODs for Fallout 76. I have done more research into them to see if they are allowed and so on.
Seems visual type MODs are good to go so I must ask if anyone knows of a map overlay one of all locations and or places of interest for easter eggs and so on.
I ask this as someone who just likes to look at stuff in games and just wanted to see if there was something out there to allow me to just walk with a small idea of what I could find for a location.

2023.03.25 02:05 X_Act Just now: Posie Parker/Kellie-Jay Keen choked by someone on livestream as violent transactivist and AntiFa mob descended onto Let Women Speak event

Here's the link to that footage that just happened about an hour ago: https://www.youtube.com/live/eDuy2Kx2HlI?feature=share
^ The last 10 mins are when things really amp up, but the build-up is worth watching, too. Some backstory to how/why this happened:
Kellie-Jay Keen holds non-partisan events where she platforms individual people speaking about the fallout of self ID policies, how it conflicts with women's rights, how the medicalization of children is abuse, etc in response to the media blackout on these issues and women often being threatened, cancelled and attacked for voicing their concerns. She is often accused of being populist because she doesn't follow any particular orthodoxy and centers a specific issue and appeals to a wide variety of people vs some socialist left-wing radical feminists that would prefer to only organize with people who agree on 500 issues, rather than functionally having a mass movement.
This past year, she started a global tour of this. Almost all the events - which are just grassroots public events that anyone can attend - have transactivists and AntiFa basically using noise makers, sirens, screaming, banging pots and pans to drown out the speaking (but you can watch and hear pretty clearly through the livestreams, which are all on YouTube), and worse... physically assaulting usually middle-aged and elderly women. If the people who come for the purpose of disrupting the events actually took a second to logically deduce the history of these tactics, they'd know that we usually bring theatrics and noise makers to events we want media attention for (essentially bringing more attention to the issue they're attempting to silence).
Police departments are often shown seeming to reject coming out to protect the right of the event to be held (which looks to be happening at this New Zealand event...no police barrier), even with permits...or keeping police support as limited as possible so the events are barely functional or allowing physical violence often. They often seem to stand down until after the assaults happen.
But anyway, Kellie went viral in the Australian media for her event about a week ago in Melbourne, which had multiple groups come to protest, and a group of Nazis came to antagonize AntiFa and started doing their own event over a megaphone before being ushered around by police to do a march down the street. Don't know how they got what looked to be the king's treatment, meanwhile the Let Women Speak event appeared to be the only group that actually got a permit to hold an event and was descended on multiple times, leaving a woman knocked unconscious and transactivists punching horses (mounted cops) to break the police line to get into the Let Women Speak event....for saying controversial things like "keep men convicted with killing and raping women out of women's prisons." Actual Nazis...not descended on.
The Australian media and multiple politicians coordinated to create a narrative that Kellie-Jay Keen is allied with Nazis...or worse, literally a Nazi, that the event itself was a Nazi event, and they hang up the trans flag at parliament the next day to stand against Nazis. Nevermind the fact that the Let Women Speak event started with respecting Aboriginal land, that a variety of races were in attendance, that a couple of speakers were Indigenous and Aboriginal, that multiple people spoke about WoC. A guy who records political events does a good breakdown with some footage here of what he saw:
https://youtu.be/X-YJIepbGek
It's an ongoing thing to call everyone Nazis and fash, and it's been an ongoing thing to attempt to connect TERFs with Nazis specifically, but with a wide scale media and politician pushed narrative, it has really amped up and instigated the hate and a mob of people probably believing these women would be better off dead than speaking. They probably literally believe she's a Nazi.
Also, here's a pretty surprisingly proper documentary she put out of her USA tour of events she did the end of last year (free to watch):
https://youtu.be/QLkUQH81Tts
Here's a mini doc about the NYC event that went viral that got really out of control that wasn't included in the main documentary:

2023.03.25 01:22 obligatorystorytime I love this genre but I haven't yet found the perfect game. Looking for recommendations

I am HOOKED on this format and I have purchased and played so many BBGs this year and all of them are fantastic games but, none of them scratch all of my itches. Here is a list of what I have played so far and an explanation why it isn't "the one". Please note that I play solo and avoid multiplayer. Suggestions are welcome and appreciated.
Fallout 4 - love this game so much but the settlement building is an afterthought, not the focus. Would love it if the whole point was to build and defend a network of settlements. With the "quests" focused on recovering tech from old locations.
Satisfactory/ Factorio - love both but they make me feel stupid once I get to the upper tech levels. I have to use other people's strategies and layouts and the "satisfaction" is artificial and fraudulent.
Valheim - this one is damn near perfect but too difficult for solo play. I get that a large number of people enjoy the soulslike difficulty but I wish it was optional. I also have the (unpopular?) opinion that there should be more NPCs/Thralls and at least some automation .
Rim World/ Dwarf Fortress/ Anything with the 3 speed/pause mechanic - I'm burned out on this mechanic bc there are so many copycats. I do like this style occassionally but I much prefer the time aspect to be adjustable in the buildings/machines themselves and the exploration and combat done in real time.
Minecraft/DQ Builders - both of these are great but a little too cute for me to fully immerse in them.
Riftbreaker - I like this one a lot but the base building isn't very involved and I don't get the same sense of accomplishment that I get from games like FO4 and Valheim. If there were a 3D fpp version of this game I think I would enjoy it way more.
Len's Island - I am very hopeful for this one. They just added controller support but it's far from perfect. I wish you could make your own town and not be limited to housing the townsfolk in the existing hub town.
I do not want to play Rust because I hate pvp. I have yet to play The Forest but I wasn't impressed with the tech level (based on the demo videos - I could be wrong here). I do not want to play Subnautica because I have submechanophobia. Other than those I would love your recommendations, thanks for taking the time!

2023.03.25 01:15 DietrichVanMeier 23 M Europe - History and Literature Enthusiast

Hi. I'm looking to talk to some new people, maybe make some friends
They are:
History, especially the 19th-20th century but with more broad and general knowedge in other time periods. I'm not an expert or anything but I am pretty passionate about it and tend to read/listen about one event or the other on a pretty regular basis.
Literature, especially old novels. I recently read Demian, Day of the Oprichnik, Heart of Darkness, the Perfume and Little Prince. Currently started reading Blood Meridian. Some of my favourite works would include: "The Picture of Dorian Gray", "Faust part I" (need to get to part II) and "No Longer Human". I also like to write short stories and book reviews.
Languages. I know three, with one being a bit rusty. I'm currently working to scrape off the rust and then when I'm finished with that will begin to learn a fourth language. It's fun to go through different works in multiple languages. For example, I read the aforementioned Faust part I in all three.
Games. I recently played Cyberpunk 2077. Now that the dust has settled and the bugs mostly removed...It's not that bad! The main questline at least, Fallout 76 (Very average, I'm dissapointed with what they made the "RPG" system) and will try out Deus Ex Manking Divided again ( Got inspired since it's somewhat similar to Cyberpunk). I was waiting to play Elden Ring but it ended being too stressful for me. Go here and get beaten up go there and get beaten up, repeat...Besides that I'm a big fan of Paradox strategy games...like EU IV and HoI IV . I am definitely looking forward to try out Victoria III, after they add more content to it. I also got Modern Warfare 2, since the first MW had great multiplayer gameplay.
Anime and Manga. In recent times my interest has waned but I still watch the occasional series here and there. Like Cyberpunk Edgerunners (Which I found to be rather mediocre) and the very good new season of Bleach. Some other favourites include: Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood, Death Note, Fate;Zero, Psycho Pass , Higurashi (season 2 is a bit weak but the first one is a masterpiece of horror), Code Geass, Attack on Titan and others. My favourite Manga is Berserk...I hope it gets a good ending..the first couple of new chapters were...a bit rough but the new author seems to have got his footing.
Anyway, that should be enough information to give you a good picture... Before I go, I would like to ask for you to include the title of the last book you read in your reply. A minor request, I feel. I'll be ignoring those that don't

2023.03.25 01:02 facistpuncher Lost in game, here's what you need to be doing (just examples,relax)

Normally you complete your dailies work towards your weeklies. Any of the main storyline you haven't completed. And then challenges like the boy scout badges.
Now if you're on PC you are one of the lucky few that can install the text chat mod. Which raises this game from a 3/10 to a 10/10 (when it's working that is).
I started around Halloween I have a 161 alt a 121 alt a 93 alt and a 388 main.
Since you are sub-300 you can try to get to 300 to unlock all of your legendary card slots which will unlock across all characters on your account in perpetuity.
My alts are all themed, my main 388 is a bloody heavy weapons killer in power armor, he's almost immortal. He'll solo the nuke bosses just fine
My current alt which is in the 160s, I started with this very board. Named him Rip Daring, made him a shotgun build for the cold shoulder.
My 93 alt is based entirely around bows, bows are terrible.
And my 121 alt is pistols designed entirely to only utilize the gear of the mistress of mystery sub-storyline and it's unique gear.
You have to set goals for yourself, certain side missions, themed characters, collect all the power armors, turn an entire series of connecting shelters into a haunted house, or an arcade.
The point is after the dailies and weeklies, you have options, as long as you're willing to set goals.
And if you are on PC, find the text chat mod with clans, find out how to install it. It will fundamentally change the game for you

2023.03.25 00:53 Doctor_Calico Doctor Calico's Attempt to Fix Yuumi

Alright, here's my attempt to try and fix Yuumi... Like a bunch of other people have done. Oh well.
Base stats: Range: 425 > 500 (+75) Health: 500 - 1673 > 460 > 1500 (-40 - -173) HP Regen: 5 - 14.35 > 6 - 17 (+1 - +2.65) - Reason: This will increase Yuumi's attack range, but make her significantly more fragile as a result. Her health regeneration increase will help out against occasional poke rather than full engagements, but now she will be easier to kill if enemies manage to land crowd control or pull her out of position. Her new passive in the document also gives her a shield that is stronger than her health lost in the nerf here, which means an overall increase in durability by the lategame, in exchange for fragility early.

P (Feline Friendship): Yuumi's basic attacks deal 20-100 (based on level) + 10% AP bonus Magic Damage on-hit, and give her a shield for the same amount. The shield durability caps at 40-200 (based on level) + 20% AP, but this has no cooldown or duration. If she is attached, the shield is transferred to her ally instead. Additionally, While attached to an ally, Yuumi grants them 2 permanent Friendship stacks whenever they kill enemy champions or minions. The ally with the highest Friendship stacks becomes Yuumi's Best Friend, which empowers her abilities with additional effects while she is attached to them. Attaching to an allied champion who isn't her Best Friend grants New Friend to them for 10 seconds, which is a single-use empowerment of an ability (but not as strong as her Best Friend). Using an ability while on them consumes New Friend. - Reason: Passive now deals magic damage on-hit, and grants a shield, something that is not present in her current kit. This will encourage a "risk-and-reward" playstyle, in exchange for removing the healing entirely. While friendship is still present, this is much less harsh.

Q (Prowling Projectile) > (Prowling Projectiles): ACTIVE: Yuumi fires five errant missiles in an inverted "V" in the target direction, dealing (12/18/24/30/36/42) +4% AP Magic Damage and slow by 40/45/50/55/60/65% for 1 second. If Yuumi is attached while she casts this, she may control the projectiles with her mouse (at a 10 degrees/second turn rate). The projectiles last for 2 seconds. The center projectile travels straight ahead, while the first "step" behind has a 10 degree offset, and the second "step" has a 20 degree offest. New Friend: +10 degrees/second control rate. Best Friend: +10 degrees/second control rate. This ability now only hits champions, but deals 50% reduced damage if it passes through a minion. The slow only applies on Q damage. Mana Cost: 50/60/70/80/90/100 Cooldown: 7s - Reason: Effectively a shotgun blast... that deals the same total damage as her normal Q. Or half guaranteed damage. While Yuumi will always be in control of the projectiles, the extremely slow turn rate allows for some skill expression against her, either by moving out of the way of an effective wall of her Qs or using Wind Wall to destroy them. However, while her Best Friend makes these pass through minions, they deal reduced damage for doing so, which should play more into the "risk versus reward" that I am trying to accomplish here - safer, low damage Qs or riskier, high damage Qs by repositioning either your ADC or you? Also, cooldown increased by 0.5s for her R passive. Probably the most "Doc, wtf" change here.
W (You and Me!): No change here. - Reason: I believe that Yuumi's W is in a good state, and the core of her entire kit. Not really touching that, since I've touched her kit up everywhere else and changing her W at this point hurts my brain. No mana cost, though, so... yay, I guess?

E (Zoomies): ACTIVE: Yuumi grants herself a 90/120/150/180/210 +30% AP shield and gains 35% (+ 8% per 100 AP) bonus attack speed for 3 seconds. She also gains 20% bonus movement speed while the shield holds. These are transferred to her anchor while attached. New Friend: Heals her anchor for 10% of the shield amount. Best Friend: Heals her anchor for 10% of the shield amount. Also gives Armor and Magic Resistance equal to 5/10/15/20/25 + 5% AP for the same duration. Mana Cost: 80/90/100/110/120 Cooldown: 13/12.5/12/11.5/11s - Reason: We've literally tossed her old E, pre-nerf reworked ult resists, and her current E into a blender and saw what happened. I am trying to account for Nuuki here, so 1,000 AP only equals 75 total resistances for 3 seconds, seems... balanced, I guess? But then building full heal and shield power would scale quadratically, because her 40% increased heal and shield power is multiplied twice like Mordekaiser's shield. Actually, I need to do some math here... So, let's assume 50% increased heals and shields. Her shield base is now 315, which would bring the heal from New Friend from 21 to 31.5. Multiply by 50% again for 47.25. Now if I assume she has... I dunno, 300 AP at full build, running the math again I got 67.5. 1,000 AP with no healing items got 51. I think it's balanced.
R (Final Chapter): PASSIVE: Yuumi's basic attacks decrease the cooldown of her Q and E by 1s. ACTIVE: Yuumi channels for 3.5s and fires 5 waves in the target direction, dealing 50/75/100 +10% AP Magic Damage per wave. Enemies hit are slowed by 10% (+10% for every wave hit this channel) for 2 seconds, which refreshes each wave hit. Waves after the first deal 50% less damage. New Friend: +1 waves for the same duration. Best Friend: +2 waves for the same duration. Mana Cost: 100 Cooldown: 120/110/100 - Reason: This may seem familiar, because it's Yuumi's old ult just with more crowd control. Gone are the heals, armor, MR, and whatever aiming shenanigans there was. Riot, you managed to turn Yuumi's ult into the sorry state it was now, and I hate it. So I reverted it. Also, I know Sylas exists, so for Sylas: You cannot attach to allies, but the passive is huge. If Sylas grabs a hold of Yuumi's ult, he can do much more damage if he just holds the damn thing rather than using it, and this might be one of the better ults he can get, like Cho'gath, Karthus, Malphite, Ashe... But he needs either an isolated Yuumi or a Yuumi off of W. So, if there is an enemy Sylas, Yuumi runs the risk of getting her ult stolen by a very fast Sylas. Again: Risk and reward.

2023.03.25 00:46 md00150028 Gauss Rifle Numbers

Introduction

Enough people ask about Gauss Rifles, which prompted me to write this up. Initially, I was going to keep it as a draft, but since mobile has trouble opening it, I decided to post this. Note that everything here is for a full health, VATS, sneak build. This is generally how this write-up is organized:
  1. The Loadout [Opinion]
  2. The "Best" Gauss Rifle for each application [Opinion]
  3. The case for each Legendary Effect for a Daily Use Sniper [Opinion]
  4. One-shot Capabilities [Tested In-game]

The Loadout

In my opinion, the optimal way to run a Gauss Rifle as your main is to carry at least three Gauss Rifles.
  1. Daily Sniper: highest damage per bullet without a critical hit with maximum accuracy. You use this 90% of the time in instances such as clearing West Tek or Daily Ops Decryption or events in which you aren't going to be overrun by enemies.
  2. Boss Killer: this gun looks for maximum damage over a period of time and is used for things like Earle, SBQ, etc. You may even swap to this for Daily Ops bosses/Pitt Bosses.
  3. Event Gun: for specific events like Radiation Rumble or Daily Ops Uplink with weaker enemies.

The "Best" Gauss Rifle for Each Application

Defer to the numbers below and longer explanations, but if you just want an opinion straight out of the gate, here is -- in my opinion -- the best three for each of those categories:
  1. Daily Sniper:
    1. Instigating/Vats Hit Chance
    2. Two Shot/Vats Hit Chance
    3. Quad/Vats Hit Chance
  2. Boss Killer:
    1. Anti-Armo50 critical damage
    2. Quad/50 critical damage
    3. Aristocrat's/50 critical damage
  3. Event Gun:
    1. Quad/Vats Hit chance (if you plan to charge it)
    2. Quad/50 critical damage (if you plan not to charge it)
    3. Two Shot/Vats Hit Chance
  4. If you were looking to carry only one: Quad/Vats hit Chance
These selections are supposing you are actually carrying three different Gauss Rifles. For the Daily Sniper, I think you could make an argument for any of the top prefixes, as each has their pros and cons.
For the boss-killer, the debate will be between DPS and Damage Per Bullet. If you are a Rifleman in the first place, DPS probably isn't your primary concern, which is why Anti-Armor takes the first place, but I would never argue with someone against Quad for the Boss Killer.
For the event gun, I am supposing you are looking strictly for a Gauss Rifle. For simplicity's sake, I did not include other guns.

Daily Sniper Prefix: A Case for Each

Instigating
Two Shot
Aristocrat's/Junkie's
Anti-Armor
Quad
Bonus: Case for Second Star:

One-Shot Capabilities: the Numbers

The following is the max level a Gauss Rifle can one-shot. All Gauss Rifles can one-shot level 100 Mutants from sneak with a headshot with a proper full health build and when properly modded. All Gauss Rifles are primed on a full-health build. Here's the build.
Some Quick Notes:
Body Shot (with sneak)

Effect Super Mutant Mole Miners Scorched Human Ghoul
Instigating 50/60.1/75.2 75 100 75 75
Two Shot 50/60.2 75 100 75.1 75
Aristocrat's 50/60.2 60/75.1 100 75.1 75
Anti-Armor 50 60.1/75.2 75 60 75
Quad 50.1 60.1 75 60 75

Non-sneak (head-shot, no "Taking One for the Team")

Effect Super Mutant Mole Miners Scorched Human Ghoul
Instigating 60/75.1/100.2 75/100.1 100 75 75
Two Shot 50/60.2/75.2 60/75.1/100.2 100 75 75
Aristocrat's 50/60.2/75.2 60/75.1/100.2 100 75 75
Anti-Armor 50/60.2 60/75.2 100 60/75.1 75
Quad 50.1 60.1/75.2 100.1 60/75.1 75
