2023.05.28 14:10 Brief_Permit_6006 how do i move on faster sa no label relationship?
For context, i was dating someone for 4 months and our connection was great. We talked about it and we told each other na exclusive kami, not until both of us fvcked up, nung bigla niya akong ni-no contact for a day or two so I thought wala na. Tapos nag-hide sya ng story sakin na may dinate pala siyang iba. So ako may nilandi din agad after kasi akala ko wala na.
Ofc mabilisan akong nakipagbreak upon knowing what she did.
After a month, nagka-jowa agad siya. Naol talaga nagkalabel noh?
Fast forward 5 months after. Namimiss ko pa rin kahit toxic siya. I trued dating other people pero bumabalik yung mga memories kasi ang tagal din namin and medyo na-attach din ako.
Nagpapakabusy ako sa work and I talk to a lot of random people here on reddit for play time lang.
I also go out with my friends sometimes to get a coffee or mag-bar to keep myself busy.
Wala na kaming contacts at all, I even unfollowed all our mutuals. Wala na ring gifts around here na magpapaalala sa kanya.
How do I move on faster?

May intl clients kami who visited us maybe some 2-3 weeks ago and I found out na yung pinaka head ng department namin did the following:
- sent our clients links to happy ending bars/massage places
- sent our clients photos of women working in said establishments
- was teaching our visitor gay slurs to say to other teammates from overseas
- jokes about gangr*pe and stuff
This guy’s one of your typical misogynist type na may pamilya and mahilig magpost ng inspirational shit sa socmed. I just wanted to air my frustrations out kasi nakaka hiya na ganun sya.

2023.05.28 12:59 kizkel Tips for first time at gay bar
Young, queer and socially awkward woman here, wanting to get out of my comfort zone. There is an upcoming event at a gay bar close to me that I’m contemplating attending. I’ve never been to a bar or club period. Or even a party. I don’t know any bar etiquette at all. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I really just want to make some friends and have some sort of social life.

2023.05.28 10:51 HauntedDalsey Work colleagues are off the hook and I’m a scared partner
My PA has had 1 relapse (that I know of and it was in March) aside from OG D-day. I’ve been doing some work to help myself cope with the betrayal and overall quality of life. I’m dealing with other emotional problems that have completely shoved the betrayal into the backseat so I’m more focused on dealing with that right now.
My partner works in Germany while we live in a Scandinavian country. He travels for work and is away for two weeks at a time and home for one week at a time. Now since it’s gotten warmer, him and his colleagues have had BBQs at the house and then gone out for drinks in the evening. I still get anxious about him going out to clubs/bars but I trust him enough to not do anything stupid. Bordells are legal in Germany and his colleagues are let’s say.. very fond of the places 😞 I trust that he won’t do anything stupid but just yesterday while out for the evening two of his colleagues decided to hit one up. He messaged me saying his single colleagues are acting stupid when girls where constantly grinding and hitting on them at the bar but they still decided to go there. Now my head is racing.. did he also get grinded on? Is there a chance someone was a little too friendly and flirty? I doubt he would go as far as visiting a bordell because in the almost 6 years he’s been there he’s never been but my mind is obviously in shambles. I don’t know how to bring it up without sounding like I’m accusing him of cheating when there is a strong chance nothing even happened. I guess I’m worried because I know some of his married/taken colleagues visit these places. They frankly don’t give two cents about their partners at home which breaks my heart. I love this man to pieces but I’m sad, angry and annoyed because I don’t want to feel this guilt and anxiety. Time to go do some more work on myself ❤️

2023.05.28 10:06 Geist_Lain Texas AG Ken Paxton impeached, suspended from duties; will face Senate trial
Defying a last-minute appeal by former President Donald Trump, the Texas House voted overwhelmingly Saturday to impeach Attorney General Ken Paxton, suspending him from office over allegations of misconduct that included bribery and abuse of office.
The vote to adopt the 20 articles of impeachment was 121-23.
The stunning vote came two days after an investigative committee unveiled the articles — and two days before the close of a biennial legislative session that saw significant right-wing victories, including a ban on transgender health care for minors and new restrictions on public universities’ diversity efforts.
The vote revealed substantial divisions within the Republican Party of Texas — the largest, richest and most powerful state GOP party in the United States. Although the party has won every statewide election for a quarter-century and has controlled both houses of the Legislature since 2003, it has deep underlying fissures, many of them exacerbated by Trump’s rise and influence.
Few attorneys general have been as prominent as Paxton, who made a career of suing the Obama and Biden administrations. One of Trump’s closest allies in Texas, along with Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, Paxton unsuccessfully sued to challenge the 2020 presidential election results in four states.
Attention now shifts to the Texas Senate, which will conduct a trial with senators acting as jurors and designated House members presenting their case as impeachment managers.
Permanently removing Paxton from office and barring him from holding future elected office in Texas would require the support of two-thirds of senators.
Impeachment was supported by 60 Republicans, including Speaker Dade Phelan and all five of the representatives from Collin County — where Paxton and his wife have lived for decades. All 23 votes in opposition came from Republicans.
Afterward, Paxton called the vote “illegal, unethical, and profoundly unjust,” adding that he looked forward to a quick resolution in the Senate.
The move to impeach came less than a week after the House General Investigating Committee revealed that it was investigating Paxton for what members described as a yearslong pattern of misconduct and questionable actions that include bribery, dereliction of duty and obstruction of justice. They presented the case against him Saturday, acknowledging the weight of their actions.
“Today is a very grim and difficult day for this House and for the state of Texas,” Rep. David Spiller, R-Jacksboro, a committee member, told House members.
“We have a duty and an obligation to protect the citizens of Texas from elected officials who abuse their office and their powers for personal gain,” Spiller said. “As a body, we should not be complicit in allowing that behavior.”
Paxton supporters criticized the impeachment proceedings as rushed, secretive and based on hearsay accounts of actions taken by Paxton, who they said was not given the opportunity to defend himself to the investigating committee.
“This process is indefensible,” said Rep. John Smithee, R-Amarillo, who complained that the vote was taking place on a holiday weekend before members had time to conduct a thorough review of the accusations. “It concerns me a lot because today it could be General Paxton, tomorrow it could be you and the next day it could be me.”
Saturday’s vote temporarily removes a controversial but influential Republican figure in Texas and nationally. He has led an office that initiated lawsuits that overturned or blocked major Biden and Obama administration policies, particularly on immigration; sought to reverse Trump’s electoral defeat in 2020; aggressively pursued voter fraud claims; and targeted hospitals that provided gender care to minors.
The Legislature had impeached state officials just twice since 1876 — and never an attorney general — but the House committee members who proposed impeachment argued Saturday that Paxton’s misconduct in office was so egregious that it warranted his removal.
“This gentleman is no longer fit for service or for office,” said committee member Rep. Ann Johnson, D-Houston. “Either this is going to be the beginning of the end of his criminal reign, or God help us with the harms that will come to all Texans if he's allowed to stay the top cop on the take, if millions of Texans can’t trust us to do the right thing, right here, right now.”
Rep. Charlie Geren, R-Fort Worth, a member of the investigative committee, used his presentation time to criticize Paxton for calling representatives as they worked on the House floor to “personally threaten them with political consequences in the next election” if they supported impeachment.
Speaking against impeachment, Rep. Tony Tinderholt, R-Arlington, called the process “wrong.”
“Don’t end our session this way. Don’t tarnish this institution,” Tinderholt said. “Don’t cheapen the act of impeachment. Don’t undermine the will of the voters. Don’t give Democrats another victory handed to them on a silver platter.”
The vote came as hardline conservatives supportive of Paxton’s aggressive strategy of suing the Biden administration were lining up in support of him. Trump — a close political ally to Paxton — blasted the impeachment proceedings as an attempt to unseat “the most hard working and effective” attorney general and thwart the “large number of American Patriots” who voted for Paxton.
Trump vowed to target any Republican who supported impeaching Paxton, adding after the vote: “What is our Country coming to?” In the evening, he called Abbott “missing in action,” asking followers on his Truth Social network, “Where is the Governor of Texas on his Attorney General’s Impeachment?”
As lawmakers listened to the committee members make their case, Paxton took to social media to boost conservatives who had come to his defense, including Trump, U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Georgia, and conservative radio host Grant Stinchfield, who tweeted, “Kangaroo Court in Texas.”
About 90 minutes into the debate, the official Twitter account of the Texas attorney general’s office began tweeting at members of the committee to challenge some of the claims being made.
“Please tell the truth,” the agency’s account said.
Under the Texas Constitution, Paxton is suspended from office pending the outcome of the Senate trial. The Senate had recessed before the House voted to impeach, and Patrick, who presides over the Senate, did not immediately respond to a request for comment about a timeline for an impeachment trial.
Because Paxton was impeached while the Legislature was in session, the Texas Constitution requires the Senate to remain in Austin after the regular session ends Monday or set a trial date for the future, with no deadline for a trial spelled out in the law.
The constitution also allows the governor to appoint a provisional replacement. Gov. Greg Abbott had not weighed in on the calls to impeach Paxton and his office did not immediately respond to a request for comment Saturday.
Impeachment represents the greatest political threat to date for Paxton, who has been reelected twice despite a 2015 indictment for felony securities fraud and an ongoing federal investigation into allegations of official misconduct that began in 2020.
The impeachment vote capped a tumultuous week at the Capitol. From Tuesday to Thursday:
Paxton abruptly accused Phelan of presiding over the chamber while drunk and demanded that he resign.
The House General Investigating Committee revealed it had been investigating Paxton in secret since March.
The committee heard a three-hour presentation from its investigators detailing allegations of corruption against the attorney general.
The committee’s three Republicans and two Democrats voted to forward 20 articles of impeachment to the full House.
Paxton, who was comfortably elected to a third term last year, made a rare appearance before assembled reporters Friday to criticize the process, saying he was not given a chance to present favorable evidence. He called impeachment an effort by Democrats and “liberal” Republicans to remove him from office, violating the will of voters and sidelining an effective warrior against Biden administration policies.
“The corrupt politicians in the Texas House are demonstrating that blind loyalty to Speaker Dade Phelan is more important than upholding their oath of office,” Paxton said. He added, “They are showcasing their absolute contempt for the electoral process.”
Many of the articles of impeachment focused on allegations that Paxton had repeatedly abused his powers of office to help a political donor and friend, Austin real estate developer Nate Paul.
In fall 2020, eight top deputies in the attorney general’s office approached federal and state investigators to report their concerns about Paxton’s relationship with Paul.
All eight quit or were fired in the following months, and most of the details of their allegations against Paxton were revealed in a lawsuit by four former executives who claim they were fired — in violation of the Texas Whistleblower Act — in retaliation for reporting Paxton to the authorities. Paxton’s bid to dismiss the lawsuit is awaiting action by the Dallas-based 5th Court of Appeals.
According to the lawsuit, the whistleblowers accused Paxton of engaging in a series of “intense and bizarre” actions to help Paul, including intervening in an open-records case to help Paul gain documents from federal and state investigations into the real estate investor’s businesses. They also accused Paxton of directing his agency to intervene in a lawsuit between Paul and a charity, pushing through a rushed legal opinion to help Paul avoid a pending foreclosure sale on properties and ignoring agency rules to hire an outside lawyer to pursue an investigation helpful to Paul’s businesses.
In return, the whistleblower lawsuit alleged, Paul paid for all or part of a major renovation of a home Paxton owns in Austin. Paul also helped Paxton keep an extramarital affair quiet by employing the woman Paxton had been seeing, the lawsuit said, adding that the attorney general may also have been motivated by a $25,000 contribution Paul made to Paxton’s campaign in 2018.
In their report to the House General Investigating Committee on Wednesday, the panel’s investigators concluded that Paxton may have committed numerous crimes and violated his oath of office.
Investigators said possible felonies included abuse of official capacity by, among other actions, diverting staff time to help Paul at a labor cost of at least $72,000; misuse of official information by possibly helping Paul gain access to investigative documents; and retaliation and official oppression by firing employees who complained of Paxton’s actions to the FBI.
The articles of impeachment accused Paxton of accepting bribes, disregarding his official duties and misapplying public resources to help Paul.
The articles also referred to felony charges of securities fraud, and one felony count of failing to register with state securities officials, that have been pending against Paxton since 2015, months after he took office as attorney general. The fraud charges stem from Paxton’s work in 2011 to solicit investors in Servergy Inc. without disclosing that the McKinney company was paying him for the work.
The impeachment articles also accused Paxton of obstruction of justice by acting to delay the criminal cases with legal challenges and because a Paxton donor pursued legal action that limited the pay to prosecutors in the case, causing further delays “to Paxton’s advantage.”
Taken in total, the accusations showed a pattern of dereliction of duty in violation of the Texas Constitution, Paxton’s oaths of office and state laws against public officials acting against the public’s interest, the impeachment resolution said.
“Paxton engaged in misconduct, private or public, of such character as to indicate his unfitness for office,” the articles said.
An attorney general had never before been impeached by the Legislature, an extraordinary step that lawmakers have reserved for public officials who faced serious allegations of misconduct. Only two Texas officials have been removed from office by Senate conviction, Gov. James Ferguson in 1917 and District Judge O.P. Carrillo in 1975.
If Paxton is to survive, he will need to secure the support of 11 senators. With the 12 Democratic senators likely to support his removal, any votes for acquittal would need to come from the 19 Republican members.
Several Republican senators issued statements Saturday evening warning constituents and others that their role as jurors in the upcoming impeachment trial prohibited them from discussing the case. In a television interview Thursday, Patrick said merely that he believed senators would be responsible jurors and “do their duty.”
A complicating factor is Sen. Angela Paxton, R-McKinney, Paxton’s wife. State law requires all senators to attend an impeachment trial, though whether she will recuse herself from voting is unclear.
Paxton’s political base lies in the far-right faction of the Republican Party, where he has positioned himself as a champion of conservative causes and a thorn in the side of Democratic President Joe Biden. Paxton has criticized his opponents as RINOs (Republicans in name only) who “want nothing more than to sabotage our legal challenges to Biden’s extremist agenda by taking me out.”
He also retained the backing of the state Republican Party, led by former state Rep. Matt Rinaldi, who frequently attacks Republicans he considers to be insufficiently conservative. On Friday, Rinaldi said the impeachment was Phelan’s fault for allowing Democrats to have too much influence in the House.
“The impeachment proceedings against the attorney general are but the latest front in the Texas House’s war against Republicans to stop the conservative direction of her state,” Rinaldi said in a statement.
Paxton also has maintained a close relationship with Trump and filed an unsuccessful U.S. Supreme Court challenge to the 2020 presidential election. Paxton also spoke at Trump’s rally in Washington on Jan. 6, 2021, shortly before the president’s supporters attacked the U.S. Capitol.
Ken Paxton has plagued Texas for far too long. I'm glad to see a modicum of justice being done.

2023.05.28 08:19 FrankieCheech001 COLLEGE STUDENTS BEWARE OF CARDINAL GROUP, GREYSTAR, & KEYSTONE HOUSING SCAMS!
TO ALL STUDENTS: Avoid renting an apartment from TREMONT, THE BRYN, or THE POINTE in State College, or any property managed or owned by CARDINAL GROUP COMPANIES or GREYSTAR, or KEYSTONE PROPERTIES in all states!
These are predatory businesses,
that target college students. Although GREYSTAR
reflects a "warning" on their website to avoid any association with properties that prohibit potential Tenants from viewing their apartment before Leasing, that is exactly what GREYSTAR
employees do! THE BRYN at 601 VAIRO BLVD in State College, Pennsylvania is a "slum property", and so is THE POINTE at 501 S. VAIRO
. They forbid potential Tenants from viewing apts before paying them multiple months of rent in advance, and signing a Lease. They only allow the view of a "Model", which is nothing like the actual apartments that look like "crack-houses". They scam people by making false representations about the true conditions
of the apartments. Their Marketing Manager is WENDY DONOVAN
. She lies to potential Tenants about everything. She has also stated that they will not, under any circumstance, allow potential renters to see their apartment before they actually take possession of it, even if the apt is vacant. THE POINTE'S
Regional Manager is ZACH LOVETT.
He carries out the same RACKETEERING SCAM that CARDINAL GROUP
does at THE BRYN
, both on VAIRO.
These properties will lie to potential Tenants and say there is only 2 apts left and they need to put a deposit/sign a lease fast to ensure they have an apt. They'll ask for approximately 3 months rent, or multiple months, in far advance. In the Illinois case, the VICTIMS discovered that they'd paid for an apartment that did not exist, on the day the Victim Tenant moved-in. The apt was uninhabitable! There was Black Mold
throughout, filthy, black carpets, although the Marketing Manager, KATIE LIBERMAN LOVETT
said that the apt and ALL apts are "deep steam cleaned". She and other staff make false claims about doing extensive cleaning to avoid COVID-19 exposure,
especially if a previous Tenant vacated in a short period of time before the new Tenant(s) moved in. This is also false! These misstatements and misrepresentations are all part of their scheme to defraud. THE POINTE
does the very same thing. Although they are owned and managed by different companies, ZACH LOVETT, THE POINTE'S
Regional Mgr. and KATIE LIBERMAN LOVETT, CARDINAL GROUP'S
former Marketing Mgr at THE BRYN
and current employee of CARDINAL GROUP
, are married, and carried out the same scheme to defraud.
These predatory businesses will take their time to repaireplace old, non-working appliances. THE BRYN
had ALL non-working appliances at the time the Plaintiff in the Illinois lawsuit moved in, although they claimed that they had ALL updated and up-to-date appliances.
Their webpage reflects that as well, but the appliances were 25-27 years old and NOT working. CARDINAL GROUP staff will then tell Tenants, "Too bad! You signed a Lease! Pay us or we'll send you to collections!"
They will also delete Tenants MAINTENANCE WORK ORDERS so that there is not a "paper trail" and no evidence, in their efforts to further their scheme to defraud. THE BRYN,
along with it's Owner, HAIM SABAN, CARDINAL GROUP COMPANIES, CARDINAL GROUP MANAGEMENT,
and the CEO, ALEX O'BRIEN, KATIE LIBERMAN LOVETT,
and VALERIE HERRERA
are being sued in the state of Illinois, Federal Court Northern District of Illinois, Case# 1:21_CV- 4324. HERRERA
is a CARDINAL GROUP MGMT.
employee and worked/works at THE BRYN.
If you're a Penn State student, or you know of any student who has been been defrauded / scammed by these people / predatory businesses, contact PSU's Student Legal Services. Do not contact LAURA ROBBINS
, Attorney in State College. She has claimed that she "handled" legal disputes on behalf of THE BRYN
. She's also a liar. Beware of Attorneys that don't "sound right". It is also important that those who have been scammed by these people, file an online Complaint with the Pennsylvania Attorney General's Office. It takes about 7 minutes to complete! \**CARDINAL GROUP COMPANIES, ALEX O'BRIEN, and CARDINAL GROUP MANAGEMENT ARE ALSO BEING SUED IN DENVER, COLORADO for the same Racketeering Scheme, Scheme to Defraud! They are involved in another Class Action Lawsuit filed by
* Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro LLP in Seattle, Washington. \**BEWARE OF ANY PROPERTY OWNED/OPERATED BY CARDINAL GROUP, OR GREYSTAR (HAS SIMILAR LAWSUITS AGAINST THEM).
Last, do your research. There are not many Student Housing properties Off-Campus, that have not been recently sued in the past, or have pending lawsuits against them by the Pennsylvania Attorney General, for defrauding and scamming college students!!! A quick "google search" or accessing their website, go in the upper-left-hand corner, enter "State College" in the Search bar. There, you can see some current cases. You can contact them directly as well. That online Complaint is important! They can't do anything unless they know about it. ****Most important: Know your state's eavesdropping/tape-recording laws! If you do business with these slumlords & fraudsters, make sure you tape-record every communication with them. Courts and Jurys love tape-recorded evidence; it's indisputable!
Here's an article about the Denver, Colorado Class Action Lawsuit against CARDINAL GROUP COMPANIES & MANAGEMENT: https://coloradosun.com/2021/10/29/cardinal-group-management-lawsuit/
There's also posts on Reddit. There are also fake positive Reviews for these slum-properties on Google and Yelp, by staff members. \***REMEMBER: SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING!!

2023.05.28 08:16 Mediocre_Hat4988 AITA for asking my boyfriend to reconsider his friendship with a guy who bullies my brother?
My (28f) boyfriend (28m) and I went out with a few friends of his after work. One of his friends, Anthony (30m), used to be coworkers with him and still is coworkers with my brother, Jesse (30m). Anthony has always been an outward asshole, one of those guys that will push buttons and "never truly means it" according to my boyfriend.
Before tonight, I had him in the neutral category if not slightly disliked. Tonight, however, as we were out, he decided to bring up how he thinks my brother Jesse is gay. This is constant work conversation for them, I have intimate knowledge of these interactions as Jesse and I have talked before about how brutally he is ridiculed at work and is the butt of every gay joke in the shop (these are construction type guys). I can see the hurt on his face and know him so well that it hurts me too. When Anthony started joking I ignored him but he continued to say "no for real, Jesse is gay! Have you seen his hair?!?! Here, let me show you photos of this guy he looks like" with me directly there. Jesse was not even there so I'm not sure why the conversation came up other than it was an opportunity for Anthony to be a dick and claim he was just being funny. I'm the younger sister but I've always been very protective of Jesse. He has the kindest heart and has been screwed over by women so many times that he has given up and keeps to himself even though he is lonely.
I got upset at Anthony but told my boyfriend I didn't want him to say anything to Anthony for fear it would make the bullying worse at work for Jesse. At the next bar we went to, my boyfriend and I got into a heated discussion about Anthony and his assholery. I was fed up with him even though he hadn't said anything else about Jesse. I told my boyfriend Anthony was a bully and an asshole and if he said one more word about Jesse I'd kick him in the nuts. BF got upset about this and said why can't I just relax and let it go, I said if his sister was being called a whore repeatedly by someone I called one of my best friends he would feel the same way. (It made sense in my brain). I stormed out and said "I'm done with Anthony, he's an asshole, I don't know why you keep defending him, I'm effing done" and walked out.
BF said that Anthony is just that way on his exterior and that I'm being too sensitive and Jesse should stand up for himself. In a perfect world, Jesse would stand up for himself but he goes along with the jokes to not get hurt more I think. Either way, I deeply despise Anthony and don't want anything to do with him. They became best friends through the job MY BROTHER got my BF after I had started dating him.
Tomorrow we are going to discuss what to do about the fact that I can't STAND Anthony and think he's a bully but BF is close with him. Honestly I don't want them to be friends unless Anthony can stop being such a dick to everyone in the name of "tough exterior" because I don't want to put up with him and have to see him all the time.
Am I the asshole for asking my BF to reconsider his friendship? And what do I do if he wants to be close friends with him still?

2023.05.28 08:11 cgjkbvc Bouncer didn’t let me into my favorite dive bar :(
I’m just kind of sad and it seems so silly to be sad about so I figured this is a good place to get it off my chest.
Whenever I go out, I end up going to the same gay bar that I’ve been going to for years. This bar has such a special place in my heart—I know the history of it, it’s helped me feel comfortable in my sexuality, I’m familiar with the bartenders and regulars. I have so many stories that have taken place there, and know all the urban legends of the place. When I’m there, it almost feels like I’m going to hang out at my friends basement or something.
There’s usually a line but I never mind. I smoked with my friend and we waited for a bit. Now, while we were waiting, several people started arguing with the bouncer. There was a group who had stepped outside for a smoke and wanted to go back in, and the bouncer kept saying he didn’t recognize any of them. Then, another person started telling him that she was mad that their friend had reported a creep to the bouncer and he was very dismissive.
The group in front of us was pretty obviously underaged so he told them they couldn’t go in… then he turned to my friend and I and told us they were at capacity and would let us in in a minute.
He then let in about 8 people who showed up off the sidewalk…. When someone on the street stood up for us asking why he let them in front of us he just said we had to wait till more people left. He then let the underaged girls in and we left.
My friend and I were behaved, cute, and of age. This is not the type of place where you have to ~be somebody~ to get in, it’s a dive bar… I can’t figure out why he snubbed us. I’ve never had a problem with him in the past, but I have heard people say they don’t like him.
I’m just really disappointed and I feel embarrassed, and annoyed that I will never know for sure what happened. The story with the other girl made me pissed too.

2023.05.28 07:15 EssayDistinct Should I (24M) cut ties na rin ba with my college friends or circle friends? (8 yrs friendship with circle friends)
We have a small circle with our college blockmates, it consists of 4 couples (4 boys and girls). We had a super solid bonding din since college. Puro tulungan kami and lahat kami ang goal is magtulungan para maka graduate. Parang magkakapatid na rin ang turingan namin sa isa't isa. May mga overnight days kami during college and even nag wo-work na kami. May mga sleepover kami minsan during weekends or kapag long weekend.
Solid din yung relationship ng mga kasama ko and very matured na rin sila kasama and more than 5 years yung mga relationship ng every couple.
5 years din kami nung ex gf ko bago kami maghiwalay. First GF ko pala siya. And nag break kami dahil humingi siya ng space sakin and gusto nya siya na raw magsabi sa mga kaibigan namin at sa family nya. So wala ako nagawa at hindi ko alam kung tama nga ba ang kwento nya. It is possible na nabago na yung story at baka ako pa ang may ginawang kasalanan tulad ng cheating.
And during college din pala, few months after 1 yr anniversary namin, nag cheat siya sakin. Pumunta sila sa bar with her High School Classmates and nabalitaan ko nalang sakanya na nag cheat siya dahil nakipaghalikan daw siya. That time nagalit ako and gusto nya raw makipag hiwalay kaya nya ginawa yun. Nung una nahirapan ako kasi di ko maintindihan pano nya nagawa. Before mangyari yun, masaya naman kami and super unexpected na mangyayari yun. Nandito siya sa bahay ng lolo ko nung lunch hanggang afternoon. We celebrated yung bday ng Lolo ko and hinatid ko rin siya doon sa meetup ng HS classmates nila bago sila umalis. Okay na okay din that time and may ILY and kiss pa bago umalis. And nabalitaan ko nalang nung gabi na nag cheat siya while inaantay ko yung chat nya if magpapa sundo ba siya sakin or sasabay siya yung classmate nya. Walang nakaka alam sa circle namin or even sa friends ko na nag cheat siya sakin. Ayaw ko madungisan pangalan nya.
Nakipag break din ako nung gabing yun. Humingi siya ng sorry and pinatawad ko siya after 1 day. I thought makakalimutan ko rin yun pag napatawad ko na siya. Napatawad ko na siya pero bumabalik ulit minsan pag may mga pagkakataon na bigla niya ko tinatakot na makipag hiwalay tuwing may mga away kami dahil sa mood nya lol.
And nag promise ako sa sarili ko na kapag nakipag hiwalay pa ulit siya, seseryosohin ko kasi paulit ulit na at baka makatulong yung space na yun para mag grow muna kami sa isa't isa.
And last week ng Feb 2023, unexpected kasi may plano kami manood ng gig/band din nung araw na yun. Pero may napag awayan kami dahil di siya sumunod sa sinasabi nya tapos bigla siya napikon at di ako kinausap hanggang gabi. Kinausap nalang ako nung gabi para makipag hiwalay para humingi ng space.
I don't know bakit ganun na siya lately, lagi nalang nagagalit at lagi niya tini-trigger yung hiwalayan. Ayaw niya rin makipag usap at sarado palagi ang isip. If pag usapan yung past away, magagalit ulit. Kaya that time pumayag na ko makipag hiwalay. Masyado niya ko kino-control din kahit sa ibang bagay. Hindi naman ako ganun sakanya, I respect kung ano ang gusto nya and sinu-supportahan ko lang.
TL;DR Nag break kami nung ex gf ko dahil naubos at napagod na siguro kami sa isa't isa and may cheating din na nangyari before.
Pero after nung hiwalayan namin, I tried to have space muna kahit sa mga friends namin. And siya parang wala lang nangyari pero nasabi na naman niya sa circle namin. Pero hindi ko alam kung ano yung kwento nya. Kilala ko naman sila and it is possible na nag aantay lang sila ng kwento ko. Pero ngayon kasi parang medyo nawawalan na ko ng gana.
May plan din pala kami na mag overnight after 3 weeks nung hiwalayan namin pero nag excuse ako na may puntahan kasi ako nung time na yun. Pero yung ex gf ko pumunta, possible doon siya ng kwento. I dunno if ano yung kwento niya it is possible na ako pala yung nag cheat ganun.
And after few weeks din nun nag overnight silang 7 (3 couples + siya), na-disappoint ako kasi di ako ininvite kahit man lang tinry nila. Then ngayon, bday ng isa naming tropa doon sa circle. Nadisappoint ulit ako kasi di ulit ako ininvite and makita ko nalang sila na may mga story na masaya silang 7.
So ngayon parang na-feel ko lang na baka option lang ako kaya ako kasama doon sa circle nila. Hindi ko rin alam kung babalik pa ba ako sa circle na yun if iinvite nila ako next time pero I doubt. It is possible kasi na pag nagka jowa na yung ex ko, ayun na yung isasama nila.
I even tried din pala makipag ayos sa ex ko ng 1 month. I always message her para magkaayos kami pero walang nangyari, binlock nya lang ako sa lahat ng social media. I even tried to call her and message pero parang naka block na rin ata ako. Then after 1 month na yun, I decided to move on na. Ayaw ko na rin bumalik sakanya kahit na magbago isip nya. Sapat na yung time na yun para mag antay.
So yung question ko po sana is i-end ko rin ba yung close friends namin? Para kasing di na ko iniinvite pag may mga alis na sila. So far ngayon, I'm better na and nag focus ako sa work and healthy lifestyle. Dami kong time ngayon and nag g-gym at nag aaral ng ibang skills/sports during my free time.

2023.05.28 06:32 maallyn Observations While Dancing
As many may know, I dance in a lot of places in our beautiful town! On the streets; in the weight room of the YMCA; at the Senior Center; At the Re-Store's annual party; at our own gay bar, Rumors; in some of our parades; at the Taylor Dock during Music on the Dock; and, of course, our own delightful Elizabeth Park concerts.
It's a real joy; it's invigorating; it helps me stay in shape; but I have noticed something that I am questioning.
Many people express appreciation of my dancing in my colorful clothing, which I do appreciate. But I notice that most of the people who show the greatest appreciation are women; women of all ages from teenagers to those well north of my own 70 years old. In fact, many women ask if they can dance with or merely join in with me while I am dancing! This was especially true at the St. Patricks Parade, where I represented the YMCA. And at the Taylor Dock.
What bothers me as a gay man is that much fewer men show appreciation to my dancing and barely any men (including at our gay bar) have offered to dance with me. And yes, this entire town should know that I am gay (after all, I have spread this around, especially when talking about Arthur). In fact, on a few occasions, men have turned away from me when I am dancing. I noticed this a bit especially while I was dancing at the Art Festival at the Ferry Terminal. It was all women who showed appreciation and only women who offered to join in with me.
Mind you, I do fully appreciate you women showing appreciation and dancing with me! Thank you!
But being a gay man, I would appreicate at least some of the same from the men?
I find this very interesting and just a touch troubling.
But, thank you women out there who love this!

2023.05.28 05:23 Gaythrowaway87 How to make friends with people who want you around?
I don't know if this is the right sub, but I need some advice.
I am a 36M and I'm openly gay, but not flamboyant or effeminate. I strongly prefer hobbies and bars that are more geared towards heterosexual communities.
I have struggled all of my life in maintaining close friendships. People fade away after a while, and in many cases, I almost never see them outside of certain specific cases. For example, I enjoy line dancing and I know plenty of people at the bar we dance at, but no one really wants to hang out with me elsewhere, no dinner, no trips, no nothing.
These people ask me where I was when I don't show up, but don't care enough to do other stuff with me or really get to know me when I am at the bar.
I have a bucket list of things I want to do: go on a trip with friends, go camping, go off roading, visit another country, etc etc. And all of these things either require a lot of money (which I have none of) or a big group of friends (which I also have none of).
I'm in a pretty shitty position and I don't know what to do. I partly blame my inability to make friends on the fact I am gay and that people are uncomfortable with that, even if they are friendly to me.

2023.05.28 04:51 Junior_Button5882 11 Terrifying-But-True Horror Stories Reported in the News - From fatal exorcisms to unexplained deaths and devil worship—these are some real-life nightmares.
A terrifying movie
gets your blood pumping in the moment of consumption, sure—we covered our eyes in Squid Game
with the rest of the world. But for the most part, you rest easy afterward knowing that what you've witnessed is fiction, deliberately spun up to creep you out. When the real world gets eerier than anything Stephen King
could dream up, that's
when you have every right to get a little scared of the dark.
Once in a while, a story of a dreadful disappearance, demonic possession, or devil worship will land in the local paper instead of a pulpy old paperback. We've rounded up the most unnerving real-life tales below. In honor of spooky season, here are eleven we can't stop thinking about.
The Axe Murder House
The Villisca Axe Murder House in Villisca, Iowa is a well-known tourist attraction for ghost hunters and horror lovers alike. The site of a gruesome unsolved 1912 murder, in which six children and two adults had their skulls completely crushed by the axe of an unknown perpetrator, was purchased in 1994, restored to its 1912 condition, and converted into a tourist destination. It costs $428 a night to stay
at the old haunted home, where visitors always report strange paranormal experiences, such as visions of a man with an axe roaming the halls or the faint screams of children.
But in November of 2014, the haunting took a darker turn. Robert Steven Laursen Jr., 37, of Rhinelander, Wisconsin was on a regular recreational paranormal visit with friends when true horror struck. Per VICE
His companions found him stabbed in the chest—an apparently self-inflicted wound—called 9-1-1, and Laursen was brought to a nearby hospital before being helicoptered to Creighton University Medical Center in Omaha.
The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office said
Laursen suffered the self-inflicted injury at about 12:45 a.m., which is around the same time the 1912 axe murders in the house began.
Laursen recovered from his injuries, but has never spoken publicly about what occurred that day. For Martha Linn, the owner of the home, the incident was very upsetting. "It's publicity, but it's not exactly the kind of publicity you desire to have. I don't want people thinking that when they come to the Villisca Axe Murder House something's going to happen that's going to make them do something like that.” The house remains open for tourist visits and overnight stays today.

The Haunted Doll
When you think of haunted dolls, it’s likely the creepy old Victorian-looking porcelain kind that springs to mind. None of which you probably have laying around. Still, don’t get too comfortable around any kids toys too soon, though: a Disney’s Frozen
Elsa doll that was gifted for Christmas 2013 in the Houston area made headlines earlier this year when it seemingly became haunted.
Per KPRC2 Houston News:
The doll recited phrases from the movie Frozen and sang “Let It Go” when a button on its necklace was pressed.
“For two years it did that in English,” mother Emily Madonia said. “In 2015, it started doing it alternating between Spanish and English. There wasn’t a button that changed these, it was just random."
The family has owned the doll for more than six years and never changed its batteries. The mother says the doll would randomly begin to speak and sing even with its switch turned off.
The family decided to throw the creepy doll out in December of 2019. Weeks later, they found it inside a bench in their living room. “The kids insisted they didn’t put it there, and I believed them because they wouldn’t have dug through the garbage outside,” Madonia told KPRC2 Houston News.
At that point, Elsa ceased to sing the English rendition of “Let It Go” altogether, speaking only Spanish when pressed. The family then double-bagged the bizarre doll and placed it at the bottom of their garbage which was taken out on garbage day. They went on a trip shortly after, but when they returned, Elsa too had come back, and was waiting in the backyard of their home.
This time, the family mailed Elsa to a family friend in Minnesota, who taped the haunted doll to the front bumper of his truck. It doesn’t seem to have made its way back to Houston yet, as per Madonia’s latest February Facebook update
on the creepy doll.
A Deadly Exorcism
In August 2016 in North London, 26-year-old Kennedy Ife began acting strange and aggressive following a pain in his throat. He reportedly bit his father, threatened to cut off his own penis, and complained of a python or snake inside of him before his family restrained him to a bed with cable ties and excessive force.
As the BBC reported
“The family then set about attempting to ‘cure’ Kennedy through restraint and prayer over the next three days, the court was told.”
His brother, Colin Ife, told
“It’s clear that thing was in him, what we believed was a demon because it was not natural. It was clearly trying to kill him,” he said.
“We had to restrain him for himself. It was clear if we didn’t restrain him, he could have tried to harm people in our family.”
Kennedy Ife had been bound to his bed for three days without medical attention when his brother called emergency services, explaining that Kennedy Ife was complaining of dehydration. He appeared to have developed breathing issues, and was pronounced dead at 10:17 a.m.
As The Independent reported
While police were at the house Colin Ife allegedly carried out an “attempted resurrection” by chanting and praying for Mr. Ife.
All seven of Kennedy Ife’s family members were accused of manslaughter, false imprisonment, and causing or allowing the death of a vulnerable adult. A post-mortem examination revealed over 60 wounds including a possible bite on Kennedy Ife’s body, and his father, Kenneth Ife, along with four of his brothers, sustained injuries as well.

The BBC reported
Kenneth Ife told jurors he ordered his sons to take shifts and use "overwhelming force" but denied that an "association with cults, occults and secret societies" played any part in the death.
After a four day jury deliberation
, all seven family members were cleared of charges on March 14, 2019.

Dead Animals in the Walls
When the Bretzuis family decided to insulate their home in Auburn, Pennsylvania in 2015, they discovered that it had already been—with scores of dead animal carcasses.
As Fox reported
The dead animals were wrapped in newspapers from the 1930s and 40s and were among half-used spices, and other items.
After removing the items they sent hundreds of artifacts and carcasses to an expert in Kutztown.
The expert attributed the rotting animals in their walls to Pow-wow or Dutch magic, a ritual originating in the culture of the Pennsylvania Dutch to treat ailments and gain physical and spiritual protection. The Pennsylvania Dutch were a group of German-speaking settlers to Pennsylvania in the 1600 and 1700’s, and are often of Lutheran, Mennonite, or Amish faiths.
The Washington Post notes
on the magic:
Many of the spells deal with the care of livestock, finding water, or the treatment of minor ailments, reflecting the conditions and concerns of early American settlers.
But powwow also has within it a tradition of darker spells, and even of such things as conjuring demons.
One notable ritual in their tradition is this hex
to create loyalty in a dog:
To attach a dog to a person, provided nothing else was used before to effect it: Try to draw some of your blood, and let the dog eat it along with his food, and he will stay with you.
The mold found on the rotting carcasses in the Bretzuis home has caused illness among the family members, and they say that the odor hasn’t gone away.

Florida Devil Worshipping
Friends noticed that Danielle Harkins, a 35-year-old schoolteacher near St. Petersburg, Florida, started acting strangely in June of 2012, developing an interest in demonic rituals.
Soon after, she was arrested for abuse of seven of her former students, as the Tampa Bay Times reported
Danielle Harkins told the kids they needed to rid their bodies of demons as the group gathered before dusk Saturday around a small fire near the St. Petersburg Pier. They should cut their skin to let the evil spirits out, police said she told the children. Then, they needed to burn the wounds to ensure that those spirits would not return.
When Harkins held a lighter to one teen's hand, wind blew the flame out, police said. That prompted her to douse his hand in perfume before setting it on fire. The boy suffered second-degree burns, police said.
Another teen was cut on the neck with a broken bottle, police said. Harkins used a flame to heat a small key, which she then used to cauterize the wound.
The police were notified because a friend of one of the students who participated in the ritual raised alarms. However none of the students themselves told their parents about the event or would comment following the arrest of Harkins for aggravated battery and child abuse.
Investigators said they've spoken to Harkins, but she didn't spell out what type of religion would require such drastic measures.
"She hasn't informed us exactly what she was trying to accomplish with this," Puetz [of the St. Petersburg Police Department] said.
The Death of Elisa Lam
Elisa Lam was last seen on January 31, 2013 in the lobby of the Cecil Hotel in downtown Los Angeles. She was vacationing through the West Coast, documenting the trip on her blog, and checking in with her parents every day. On January 31 those calls stopped. Lam had vanished. Soon the police were involved and her parents arrived to help with the search.
They had nothing. That February, LAPD released elevator surveillance footage of Lam before her disappearance. The footage shows Lam behaving strangely in the elevator, appearing to talk with invisible people, peering around the corner of the door, crouching in the corner, and opening and closing the door. But what exactly is going on in this video raises more questions than answers. Theories range from psychotic episodes, to demonic possession, to unknown assailants just out of the camera's view:

Around that time, hotel guests started reported weird things happening with the Cecil Hotel water supply. As CNN reports
Advertisement - Continue Reading Below
"The shower was awful," said Sabina Baugh, who spent eight days there during the investigation. "When you turned the tap on, the water was coming black first for two seconds and then it was going back to normal."The tap water "tasted horrible," Baugh said. "It had a very funny, sweety, disgusting taste. It's a very strange taste. I can barely describe it."But for a week, they never complained. "We never thought anything of it," she said. "We thought it was just the way it was here."
On the morning of February 19, a hotel employee climbed to the roof and used a ladder to investigate the hotel's water storage tanks. That's where authorities found the decomposing, naked body of Lam, whose personal items were found nearby. After an autopsy, her death was labeled accidental. NBC Los Angeles reported at the time
about the strange circumstances in the hotel's past:
The tank has a metal latch that can be opened, but authorities said access to the roof is secured with an alarm and lock.The single-room-occupancy hotel has an unusual history. "Night Stalker" Richard Ramirez, who was found guilty of 14 slayings in the 1980s, lived on the 14th floor for several months in 1985. And international serial killer Jack Unterweger is suspected of murdering three prostitutes during the time he lived there in 1991. He killed himself in jail in 1994.In 1962, a female occupant jumped out of one the hotel's windows, killing herself and a pedestrian on whom she landed.
In February 2021, a Netflix doc
called Crime Scene: The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel
explored Elisa's tragic case and the history of the "cursed" Cecil Hotel
An Exorcism in Indianapolis
Last year, the Indianapolis Star published a lengthy report
on a family terrorized by three children allegedly possessed by demons. The account of Latoya Ammons and her family tells disturbing stories of children climbing up the walls, getting thrown across rooms, and children threatening doctors in deep unnatural voices. It would seem like something straight out of a movie–a work of fantasy, except all of these accounts were more or less corroborated with "nearly 800 pages of official records obtained by the Indianapolis Star and recounted in more than a dozen interviews with police, DCS personnel, psychologists, family members and a Catholic priest."
One of the more chilling sections of the report includes a segment about the possessed 9-year-old:
According to Washington's original DCS report—an account corroborated by Walker, the nurse—the 9-year-old had a "weird grin" and walked backward up a wall to the ceiling. He then flipped over Campbell, landing on his feet. He never let go of his grandmother's hand.
Another segment of the piece reads:
The 12-year-old would later tell mental health professionals that she sometimes felt as if she were being choked and held down so she couldn't speak or move. She said she heard a voice say she'd never see her family again and wouldn't live another 20 minutes.

In September of 2014, a Utah teen returned to his home to find his parents and three siblings dead. "In a notebook, a 'to-do list' had been scribbled on the pages ... The list looked as if the parents were readying to go on vacation—items such as 'feed the pets' and 'find someone to watch after the house' were written," The Salt Lake Tribune reported
. It appeared to be murder-suicide, but there was no suicide note, no prior indication that they would do this, no explanation. Police could not figure out why two parents would kill themselves and three of their four children.
For a year, no one knew exactly what happened to the family, or what would drive the parents to do something so unthinkable. In January, police released more chilling details in the case. According to accounts from family members and an investigation by police, the parents were driven by a belief that the apocalypse was coming and an obsession with a convicted killer. As the Washington Post reported
Friends and family told police that the parents were worried about the "evil in the world" and wanted to escape a "pending apocalypse." But most assumed they just wanted to move somewhere "off the grid." Investigators also found letters written by Kristi Strack to one of the state's most infamous convicted killers, Dan Lafferty, who was convicted in the 1984 fatal stabbing of his sister-in-law and her 1-year-old daughter. According to trial testimony, he killed the victims at the order of his brother, Ron Lafferty, who claimed to have had a revelation from God. The story became a book called "Under the Banner of Heaven."Police said Kristi Strack became friends with Dan Lafferty, and she and her husband even visited him in prison.
The Phone Stalker
In 2007, ABC news documented
a series of cell phone calls to families with terrifyingly specific death threats. The unidentified callers knew exactly what families were doing and what they were wearing.
The families say the calls come in at all hours of the night, threatening to kill their children, their pets and grandparents. Voice mails arrive, playing recordings of their private conversations, including one with a local police detective.The caller knows, the families said, what they're wearing and what they're doing. And after months of investigating, police seem powerless to stop them.
This went on with the Kuykenall family for months, who reported a caller with a scratchy voice threatening to slit their throats.
When the Fircrest, Wash., police tried to find the culprit, the calls were traced back to the Kuykendalls' own phones -- even when they were turned off.It got worse. The Kuykendalls and two other Fircrest families told ABC News that they believe the callers are using their cell phones to spy on them. They say the hackers know their every move: where they are, what they're doing and what they're wearing. The callers have recorded private conversations, the families and police said, including a meeting with a local detective.
After moving into their $1.3 million dream home, a New Jersey family started receiving creepy death threats from someone who identified themselves as "The Watcher." As CBS News reported
earlier this year:

Since moving in, the owners said they have received numerous letters from the mysterious person. "The Watcher" claimed the home "has been the subject of my family for decades," and "I have been put in charge of watching and waiting for its second coming," Castro reported.The new owners have several children, and other letters asked, "Have they found out what's in the walls yet?" and "I am pleased to know your names now, and the name of the young blood you have brought to me."
The family was forced to flee from their home and later filed a lawsuit against the previous owners.
Issei the Cannibal
In 1974, 24-year-old Wako University student Issei Sagawa allegedly followed a German woman to her home in Tokyo, Japan, broke into her apartment while she was sleeping, and attempted to cut a piece of flesh off her body to consume. When she awoke, she reportedly fought him and he was later captured by the police. According to a 2012 Vice
documentary that covered Issei's bizarre story, he was mistakenly charged with attempted rape and his wealthy father paid the victim a settlement outside of court to have the charges dropped.
Seven years later, in 1981, he allegedly committed a murder in France—shooting and eating a fellow University student, Renée Hartevelt. Issei creepily documented the entire experience with photographs and he was captured by authorities once again while attempting to dump the rest of her body in the Bois de Boulogne lake. He was deported back to Japan and committed to a mental institution. For reason unknown, his psychologists in Japan declared that he was sane. Furthermore, a legal technicality involving the French government refusing to turn over the documents from his case meant that his murder charges were dropped completely. He checked himself out of the mental hospital and has reportedly been walking the streets as a free man ever since. Issei has even become a controversial celebrity, writing over 20 books. According to Japan Today
, he most recently fantasized about an unnamed TV actress, saying: "I'll catch a glimpse of her thigh and think, 'That sure looks tasty.' But I don't feel like I actually want to eat it. As I accomplished the act of cannibalism once, there's no meaning to maintaining the desire for it anymore. In my book, I wrote that it [human flesh] was tasty, but that was not really true; I'd much rather eat Matsuzaka (Kobe) beef. But because I'd desired to consume human flesh for so long, I'd managed to convince myself that it would necessarily be delicious."
Issei Sagawa was also referenced in the Rolling Stones song "Too Much Blood," with the lyrics reading: "And when he ate her he took her bones/To the Bois de Boulogne." He is currently
73 years old and continues to live in Kawaski City, Japan. To this day, no one knows why France did not allow Japan to give him a trial.

2023.05.28 04:50 sodaloser Girl I dated for like 2 months has gone delusional
Okay so this is something that I kinda find funny but dont really know what to do? . anyways. friend thought itd be a great idea to introduce me to this girl around 3 years ago. started texting than hanging out, driving around town, smoking weed, pretty much doing 18 yo stuff. she was fun and sweet to be around.
Started to notice she lied a lot about the most irrelevant shit to me and others, people warning me on her being so dramatic and insecure. still didnt care and tried to give it a shot.
Some day I confront her about being so insecure and the lying stuff, she opened up with me about lacking parental attention and being mentally and sexually abused once while growing up. made sense since she was always trying to be the center of attention. tried to stick with her but kept making things difficult by victimizing herself so much.
this night we had a fight while driving her home and instantly tried to fixed things up by talking. she blocked me and i thought it was over. it was whatever to me at that point. 2 weeks later we got to talk, she tried to resume dating but I declined and respectfully told her it was over.
years have passed and friends and others would let me know all the shit she has talked about me. dont care and pretty much everyone knows about her behavior (small town). even some girl that i dated once told me that they had a quick conversation in some party and said that i tried to punch her that last night. still didnt care. would unexpectedly come across her at some parties and she'd act reckless to have my attention, just ignored her. she told one of my closest friends at a bar that i felt gay for him and that i had confessed to her that i was secretly in love with him. did nothing.
Last week at job, got to talk with this girl that i hadnt seen in like two years. first thing she told me was that some weeks ago she gave the crazy girl and some mutual friends a ride to a show. and randomly said that i confessed to her once that my sister and cousin were dating and fucking and i went to her for advice. everyone in that car got uncomfortable and silent. this girl told her to shut the fuck up and to move on about me and her. didnt know what to say besides that i was not intersted on talking about it and just changed the subject.
Now. i know she would love to know that im wasting my time writing this. i think its pathetic but its got too far now. should i talk to her or what?

All lineages combined, all vacancies ignored, all reigns recognized and all champions holding the belt once.
