Ich hätte so gern Freundinnen - aber wie finden? ;_;

2020.08.17 10:15 CrispieAspie Ich hätte so gern Freundinnen - aber wie finden? ;_;

Eins vorweg: Wie meinem Benutzernamen zu entnehmen ist, bin ich am autistischen Spektrum, was ich erst neulich (im Alter von 29) erfahren habe, aber meine Situation und eigentlich mein ganzes Leben etwas erklärt.
Ich kam immer gut mit Jungs zurecht und hatte Probleme, in Mädchen-"Cliquen" teilzunehmen. Ursache dafür waren recht ausgeprägte "nerdige" Interessen und eine nicht zu brechende Zuordnung zur Gruppe der "Verrückten".
Dementsprechend glücklich war ich auf meiner IT-Schule, die praktisch rein aus den "Verrückten" Nerds bestand, da hatte ich jedoch bloß ein anderes Mädchen in der Klasse (und später war ich die einzige).
Irgendwann, als ich so 17, 18 war und meine ersten Connections ins Berufsleben hatte, sowie meinen jetzigen Ehemann kennenlernte, habe ich meine früheren Wege als "Special snowflake not like the other girls"-bullshit empfunden und "abgelegt". Im Zuge dessen habe ich Smalltalk und andere gesellschaftliche Navigation wie eine Besessene studiert und kann sie jetzt gut anwenden
Tja, um Freundinnen zu finden, reicht es noch immer nicht. So gut wie jedes Mal, wenn ich andere Frauen, die aus irgendeinem Grund in meinem Umfeld sind, auf eine Weise anspreche, die aus dem Smalltalk-Geplänkel heraustreten würde, ernte ich schiefe Blicke und höfliche Ablehnung.
Die einzige Erfahrung, in der ich aktiv weibliche Freunde gefunden habe, war, als ich erneut in themenspezifischen Online-Foren herumhing (in meiner Jugend war das so etwas wie DeviantArt und Animexx), die sich auch gelegentlich offline trafen - aber der Kontakt über die damaligen Messenger war schon eine Clique für sich :3.
Diese Szene hab ich in meinem Versuch der "Sozialisierung" vernachlässigt und dann passierte das Leben, ich war eine Weile lang zuhause mit meinen Kindern, und bis auf eine einzige Freundin mit Kindern (die mehr oder weniger unmissverständlich klar gemacht hat, dass sie sich mit uns trifft, weil sie unsere Kinder für guten Umgang für Ihre hält, und nicht etwa, weil sie mich persönlich als Freundin schätzen würde), kenne ich nun niemanden mehr, der an Freundschaft mit mir Interesse hätte.
Vermutlich wäre es möglich, wieder Leute kennenzulernen, wenn ich mich in ein Interesse triggern würde - aber für Online-Gaming mit Clans etc. fehlen mir schlichtweg die Ressourcen. Ich habe eine einzige Online-Freundin, ein mit-Aspie, der ich gelegentlich schreibe, shitposte und Memes schicke, aber auch sie lebt viel zu weit weg, um sich zB gelegentlich auf einen Kaffee zu treffen o.ä.
(Es scheint, als ist der Großteil der nicht-autistischen Bevölkerung zwar schon damit beschäftigt, seinen Freunden den Tag über Gedanken und Nachrichten auf schriftlichen Kanälen zu senden, möchte als Grundlage dafür aber Treffen im realen Leben erleben, was für mich ein Henne-Ei-Problem darstellt, weil auch keiner Lust hat, sich auf einen Kaffee mit jemandem zu treffen, den er überhaupt nicht kennt.)
"Geh in Clubs", ist die übliche Antwort, die nicht berücksichtigt, dass es mir in "geselligen" Situationen unmöglich ist, in Gruppengespräche einfach fröhlich einzusteigen und das irgendwie dorthin zu führen, mit Leuten, die mir nett erscheinen, persönlich ins Gespräch zu kommen.
Das ganze scheint mir noch komplizierter als diese ganze Dating - "Treffen wir uns mal auf nen Kaffee"-Geschichte, weil dort wenigstens die Intention klar und die beidseitige Bereitschaft offensichtlich ist...
Außerdem scheint es, dass in meinem Alter das prinzipielle Interesse daran, Freunde zu finden, eher schwach ist.
Müttergruppen kann ich eigentlich auch abschreiben, da erfahrungsgemäß die meisten frischgebackenen Eltern in Mutti-Freundschaften jemanden suchen, mit dem sie die aufregende Reise zusammen erleben können, und sich nicht mit unserer Crew von Kids und den damit einhergehenden Rahmenbedingungen befassen will.
Mein Mann, auch ein Introvert, hat Freunde in ziemlich spezifischen literarisch-philosophischen online-Gruppen - die werden aber wiederum von Männern dominiert und dort als Frau aufzutauchen ist einfach nicht dasselbe.
So oft hab ich auch schon gehört "Mach einfach dein Ding mit Überzeugung, dann findest du schon Anklang" - das hab ich mit einem Blog versucht und da tatsächlich Anklang gefunden, der sich aber ebenso rein auf den Inhalt bezogen hat und auch an persönlichem Kontakt kein Interesse hatte.
Ich muss wohl an meiner persönlichen Exzentrik im echten Leben arbeiten, obwohl mir dieses "Zur-Schau-stellen" eigentlich ziemlich peinlich ist.
Auch schon oft gehört, als ich um Rat fragte: "Du kommst ziemlich verzweifelt rüber, das ist nicht sehr attraktiv."
Womit die Katze sich wieder einmal in den Schwanz beißt. Tschuldigung, dass ich mich über Freunde freuen würde, wie jeder normale Mensch. Es sei gesagt, dass ich auch nicht bei der erstbesten Gelegenheit herausspringe und schreibe "Heyyyy gehen wir Kaffee trinken??? :)))" - ich habe ja die Gabe der Beobachtung - sondern wirklich jedes Mal einen neuen Ansatz verfolge und meine Haltung anpasse, ohne dabei jedoch andere Reaktionen zu erzielen. Sobald ich den Versuch mache, die Linie zur Freundschaft zu überschreiten, hagelt es kalte Schultern. Und wenn ich es nie versuche, ebbt die Interesse ebenso ab und ich kann mich entscheiden, weiter ins Nichts meine Nachrichten aus meinem unendlichen Born der Eigeninitiative zu schreiben, oder mein Versagen einfach zu akzeptieren.

2020.08.05 18:33 CausticPenguino Diamond Casino Heist Guide + TIPS - Written by /u/DatCamaroGuy

Diamond Casino Guide:
So you decided that you wanna rob a casino, great! The Diamond Casino Heist is one of the best ways to earn money, but you're wondering, how do I get started? Well, you're in luck! This guide is going to teach you the ways to get the best out of the Diamond Casino Heist!
Step 1: Arcade
Alright to get started, you’re going to have to own an arcade. Now, it may seem better to go for the arcades on the top of the map to save yourself some cash, however, this will make all the preps much harder, as most of them take place in LS or Sandy Shores.
The best arcade locations are 8-bit ($2,530,000, located in Vinewood) and Videogeddon ($1,875,000, La Mesa). When buying your arcade, none of the upgrades are necessary, as most of them are cosmetic. You’ll have to complete a quick arcade setup mission to access the basement where the diamond casino heist planning board is located.
Step 1.5: Arcade Income
While this isn’t related to the diamond casino heist, I thought I would put this in there. The arcade generates income based on how many games you have, going up to 5k per in-game day (48 min). The game doesn't matter, so you can just buy the cheapest one (Monkey’s Paradise, $90,000) and fill up your arcade with it.
Step 2: Scope out casino
After you’ve finished watching Lester scribble a big mess over the whiteboard, you’ll be able to start the casino heist. Normally, you’ll have to pay a setup cost of 25k, but since it’s your first time doing it, it’ll be free. After you’ve confirmed that you want to start the casino heist, you’ll need to finish the scope out mission. For the scope out mission, you’ll need to take a variety of pictures for Lester in order to unlock entrances for the heist. A full guide is linked here but I’ll sum up the most important ones.
You’ll only need to do this mission once, and it will be completed for all future casino heists.
Step 3: Vault Contents
The vault contents mission is pretty easy. You’ll be given the rough location of a Duggan security guard, once you find him, you can either hack him, which can take some time but you won’t get the cops on you if you do it right, or you can kill him and grab the phone, which will save you some time but you’ll need to lose the cops before you can enter the casino.
After you’ve entered the casino, you’ll need to bring out the sightseer app on your phone to find a wifi signal. After you’ve located the wifi signal, you’ll need to figure out the vault contents. Beware that you only have a limited time to do this (2 min).
Since it’s probably your first time, I would recommend that you go through every camera to scope out each POI. The target will be cash since it’s your first time, which has a payout of 2.1 mil on normal. The first time will always be cash (payout of $2,115,000 on normal), but if it’s not your first time, the targets can be either cash, artwork (payout of $2,350,000 on normal) or gold (payout of $2,585,000 on normal).
There is a 4th target, which is diamonds (payout of $3,257,100 on normal) however this vault content is only available for special occasions and has been removed from the vault contents.
If you do the heist on hard by doing the same approach after you’ve done another one, the payout will be 10% larger. If you’ve completed all 3 approaches to the heist, you can cancel the heist which can be helpful if you’ve got a bad target. Link to this is here.
Step 4: Selecting your approach
Once you’ve finished the vault contents mission, you’ll be able to select your approach.
There are 3 approaches to the diamond casino heist. Silent and Sneaky, The Big Con and Aggressive.
For beginners, I would recommend alternating between Big Con and Aggressive, because those are the easiest ones. For Big Con, choose the Gruppe Sechs disguise for the easiest entry. Aggressive is good for newer players however it does end up in a lot of money loss. After you’ve got the gist of it, alternate to doing Silent and Sneaky in place of aggressive for a bigger payout.
Step 5: Selecting your support crew
After you’ve selected your approach, you’ll need to select your support crew before you can do any of the prep missions.
Selecting your support crew is very simple. You’ll need a gunman to source guns, a driver to source cars, and a hacker to delay the nerve agent inside the vault.
Selecting your support crew depends on the approach and target in the vault. For Big Con, SnS, any target EXCEPT for art, you’ll want the worst gunman (Karl Abolaji, take his Micro SMG on big con, heavy revolver on aggressive and on SnS the choice is up to you), the worst driver (Karim Denz, take his sentinel classic) and the best hacker available to you, for most people, this will be Paige Harris (unlocked when the Terrorbyte is purchased, gives 3:25 in the vault when undetected and 2:23 detected).
For aggressive, you’ll still want to have the worst driver and best hacker, however, the gunman is up to you since you’ll be using guns a lot. I normally go with Charlie Reed (unlocked when purchasing a hangar), he takes a 7% cut (2% more than Karl) and gives you an assault SMG, however, you can get by with Karl, as every gunman gives you an SMG to go along with another weapon, which is still a perfectly fine weapon.
For Big Con, SnS and the target is Art, if you and your heist partner can both hack very well, you can get by with Yohan Blair (takes a 5% cut and gives you 2:51 in the vault if you are undetected and 2:01 if you are).
Step 5.5: Secret heist crew members
There are 2 hidden heist crew members that can’t be unlocked by purchasing a business like most heist crew members. There 2 are Patrick McReary and Avi Schwartzman. Patrick McReary is a gunman who takes an 8% cut and gives the choice a Combat MG or an Assault Shotgun in aggressive. Avi Schwartzman is a hacker that takes a 10% cut and gives 3:30 undetected in the vault and gives 2:22 if you are detected. To unlock Patrick, he spawns as a random event around the map. He spawns in a police car that you will need to hijack. A guide is linked here. To unlock Avi, you’ll need to destroy 50 signal jammers that are located around the map. A guide is linked here.
Step 6: Prep Missions
Now that you’ve selected your support crew, you’ll be presented with a plethora of prep missions. Some mandatory and some optional. To complete these missions, I suggest that you use a Kuruma, Buzzard, or Oppressor Mk2 to make your life easier. In some prep missions, you will not be able to call Lester, so be prepared. All of the missions can be done solo but it makes it easier if you have a friend with you to help you out.
Now onto the optional prep missions. Optional prep missions, are, as the name suggests, optional. The optional prep you should do depends on the approach. If you own a penthouse and have completed all of the missions, you will gain access to the security intel mission. It’s very easy to complete and you will only need to do it once. A nice trick is that the gauntlet actually spawns when you start the mission, not when the cutscene is triggered, so you can just shoot the driver and take the gauntlet. A guide will be linked below.
Let’s start with Silent and Sneaky. For Silent and Sneaky, the optional prep missions depend on your skill level. If you’re an experienced player, you don’t need to do much, only level 2 security passes. Power drills you can do if you think you have enough time. However, if you are a very new player, I’d recommend that you do patrol routes, Duggan shipments (you only need to destroy 3 to get rid of their bulletproof helmets), level 2 security passes, emp device and infiltration suits and power drills if you think you have enough time. If you do all these, the heist should be a breeze.
Going onto the Big Con, if you’re doing Gruppe Sechs, you don't need to do much. You only need to go through one door if you exit out the staff door, so you can decide if you want to do level 2 security passes or not. Patrol routes do make things easier, however are not necessary. Again, only do power drills if you think you have enough time. Make sure you do exit disguises. Noose and firefighter are exactly the same, so do firefighters since it has an easier mission.
For aggressive, again, patrol routes make it easier but are never necessary. Make sure to do Duggan shipments. You can solo it, but it will be much easier with another person. If you don’t get them all you can just close the game and you’ll be able to do the mission again. Reinforced armor allows you to take more damage, so I would recommend it even if it makes you slower. Be sure to also do boring machine as it allows you to enter through the sewers. Make sure to also do level 2 security passes unless you really like hacking doors.
Step 7: Finding people to play with
Now that you’ve completed all your required prep missions, you need some people to play with. If you don’t have any friends to play with, I recommend checking out HeistTeams or the GTAO Discord LFG Channels to find people to play with. Make sure to have good communication between your teammates otherwise the heist will be in chaos.
Step 8: Completing the heist
Now that you’ve got a solid heist crew waiting to grab all of that sweet loot out of the casino’s vault, you’ll be able to start the heist. If you're doing aggressive, the plan is pretty simple, shoot your way in, grab the loot, then shoot your way out. The easiest entry for aggressive is sewers, and the easiest exit is the eastern roof terrace. If you exit through the staff lobby, you’ll get shot a ton when going over the racetrack, however, if you exit through the roof terrace, you can shoot the guys behind the stones on the racetrack then safely parachute down.
For The Big Con, I’m going to assume you’re doing the Gruppe Sechs approach. By doing the Gruppe Sechs approach, you can pretty much waltz into the vault and back out of it, just be careful that this has some limitations. When going back up the stairwell/elevator to the casino access floor, the guards will have checked the vault and know it’s been robbed, so you disguise ain't gonna work anymore. I strongly suggest getting exit disguises, as they will greatly help your escape. The easiest exit for this is the staff lobby.
For SnS, I’m not really going to go into too much detail here because there’s a full video linked below. What I will talk about is when to use the emp (If you did the prep mission). I recommend emp’ing when you’re at the vault access floor, allowing you to waltz into the mantrap, or when you're coming back up to the casino access floor and are in the mantrap. Be warned that if you decide to get the daily vault when you trigger the emp, the emp’s timer will run out before you can get to your exit, so plan ahead. The easiest entrance for this is the staff lobby and the easiest exit is also the staff lobby.

2020.07.12 15:20 scccP Ich merke gerade, dass ich fast alle meiner ehemaligen Freunde nur durchs zocken kennengelernt habe und es scheint immer noch DIE beste Möglichkeit zu sein, unter Männern freundschaften zu schließen (CMV?).

Ich bin 24 m und poste hier immer mal wieder über meine Erfahrungen und Gedanken, Freunde zu finden außerhalb von Kindergarten, Schule, Arbeit oder der Erstiwoche an der Uni. Meiner Meinung nach, zumindest unter Männern, ein extrem wichtiges Thema, da ich erschreckend um mich herum Beobachte, dass viele Männer mit zunehmenden Alter eigentlich niemanden haben, außer ihrer Freundin/Frau, wenn sie überhaupt eine haben.
Ich versuche seit Oktober sehr aktiv Freunde zu finden und davor mein ganzes Leben natürlich auch, aber habe zumindest davor nicht wirklich aktiv was daran getan.
Bisher war ich noch nicht erfolgreich, auch wenn ich echt VIELES versucht habe, aber ich gebe auch noch nicht auf da ich das ganze auch als eine Art Forschungsarbeit sehe und immer wieder verschiedene Hypothesen austeste.
Meistens scheitert es oft schon an Sachen wie, dass die wenigsten Leute regelmäßig vorbeikommen, dass die meisten Kurse/Trainings nur 1x bis 2x pro Woche 1-2 std. gehen, große Altersunterschiede usw. usw.
So sieht man eine Person effektiv vielleicht nur 1 bis 2 mal im Monat und führt dann mit dieser Gespräche, die meistens nicht über 10 min hinausgehen. Einer meiner größten Hypothesen ist es, dass der Aufbau einer Freundschaft SEHR VIEL ungeplante Zeit braucht (zumindest soll es sich ungeplant anfühlen). In meinem Kopf habe ich immer hierzu ein Extrembeispiel: Würde ich 10 Jahre lang ohne Hab und Gut nur mit einem Mörder auf einer Insel zusammensitzen, würden wir wahrscheinlich beste Freunde werden.
Trotzdem lerne ich viele Leute kennen, mit denen man sich sympathisch ist, aber mein größtes Problem bisher ist es, diese Person außerhalb des Kurses/Trainings zu treffen. Selbst wenn es zu einem Treffen kommt, muss man dann den Kontakt zu der Person Aufrecht zu erhalten. Echt schwierig also. Das ganze bestätigt sich nochmals, wenn man sich die persönliche Erfahrungen von Leuten durchliest. Es ist zu 99% (ja, ich meine wirklich 99%) Kindergarten, Schule und Arbeit.
Das Problem ist wie gesagt einerseits Zeit. Mit eig. allen Personen verbringe ich zu wenig Zeit miteinander als dass man sich SO sympathisch wird, dass man sich trifft. Klar, gemeinsame Interessen helfen, aber die meisten Menschen, mich eingeschlossen, haben zwar Interessen, aber nicht so mega über passioniert, so dass man sich gegenseitig sofort geil findet, wenn man diese Interessen teilt. So kann sich dann solch ein Treffen schnell als ein platonisches Date anfühlen. Das zweite Problem ist, dass mir bisher nichts eingefallen ist, was man zu zweit machen kann aber gleichzeitig sehr "low commitment" ist. Das klassische Beispiel ist "ein Bierchen trinken" aber das kann schnell in sowas enden (die Stelle bei 8:11-8:50, hab das Video nicht mehr auf Youtube gefunden). Man muss ein Treffen ausmachen, zur BaOrt gehen, man ist nervös etc., ihr merkt, so ein "Bierchen trinken" kann zumindest unter zwei Menschen schnell sich sehr "high commitment" fühlen. Irgendeine Aktivität also, die genug Spaß macht, selbst wenn man sich mit der Person nicht versteht und wo man sich nicht permanent gegenüber sitzen muss.
Als ich darüber nachgedacht habe, ist mir aufgefallen, dass ich zumindest in der Vergangenheit fast alle meine Freunde übers Zocken kennengelernt habe. Das lief dann in der Schulzeit immer ungefähr so:
Ich: "Zockst du irgendwelche spiele?" Er : "Ja ich zocke Starcraft2/DOTA/Call of Duty etc." Ich: "Geil, was ist denn dein Steam Username? Lass mal irgendwann zusammenzocken" Er : "Ja cool, mein Username ist blablub"
Dann hat man die Person geaddet, und wenn man zufällig gleichzeitig Online war, hat man sie gefragt ob man zusammen zocken will. Dann hat man sich über Skype verbunden und dann zusammen gezockt und dabei gequatscht. Dadurch konnte man sich extrem "low commitment"-mäßig untereinander warm werden. Nach einiger Zeit zockte man dann weniger und tauschte stattdessen dann Memes/Artikel/Videos untereinander aus und unterhielt sich über die Schule. Irgendwann ist man sich dann so sympathisch, dass man dann sowas sagen konnte wie "Ey, da läuft so ein geiler Film diese Woche im Kino, hast du Bock hinzugehen"? Ab dem Punkt war man sich dann so sympathisch, dass so ein Treffen sich nicht mehr wie ein "Date" anfühlte. Das tolle am zocken ist auch, dass längeres schweigen kein Problem war. Entweder war man am zocken oder wusste, dass man gerade irgendwo rum surft oder auf Toilette war oder was zu Essen holen war. Durch die Person lernte man dann auch andere Personen kennen, die auch zockten und daraus hatte sich dann mal auch eine Gruppe gebildet, die zusammen Fußball spielen gegangen ist oder ins Freibad.
Ich habe mit 19 aber komplett "Cold Turkey" mit dem Zocken aufgehört weil ich mich dafür geschämt habe. Hab die gewonnene Zeit dann hauptsächlich durch Reddit und Youtube ersetzt.
Nach meinen Erfahrungen in den letzten Monaten, denke ich wieder nach, eine Konsole oder Gaming-PC anzuschaffen, nicht aber zum puren Zocken sondern als Unterstützung zum Freunde finden.
Wird einige Zeit dauern, da ich gerade nicht das Geld dazu habe und erstmal in meiner zweiten "Phase" des Freunde findens, Teamsportarten probiere, wobei die Erfahrungen dort eher ernüchternd sind (siehe Probleme oben).
Was meint ihr dazu? Und hättet ihr eine Vorschlag für eine Aktivität, die ungefähr dem Entspricht, was ich oben übers Zocken geschrieben habe, aber eben halt nicht zocken ist :D?
Edit: So eine Konsole ist auch eine super Gelegenheit, um sympathische Leute die man noch nicht so gut kennt, einzuladen und so haben sich in meiner Kindheit auch einige Leute mit mir angefreundet. Mario Kart + Bier + Pizza stelle ich mir super vor und die Hemmschwelle sollte bei sowas für die eingeladene Person ganz gering sein.

2020.05.21 20:48 Passivist1 Möchte mir hier mal was von der Seele schreiben. Ihr vielleicht auch? (Gedanken zu Mobbing)

Das wird jetzt eine kleine Aneinanderreihung von Disclaimern:
  1. Ich bin männlich, Ende 20 und verfolge die Nachrichten, trotz Vollzeitjob, sehr aufmerksam. Politisch bin ich eher linksgrün, wie vermutlich die meisten in meinem Alter.
  2. Kleine Triggerwarnung, es geht um Mobbing usw.
  3. Ich habe heute morgen "Männerwelten" gesehen und schon lange vorher, da ich online viele Ami-Zeitungen lese (hauptsächlich NY Times/Washington Post/The Atlantic), verfolgt, was die #MeToo-Bewegung so umtreibt. Ich finde es grundsätzlich gut, dass sich da eine starke Lobby gegen Machtmissbrauch/sexuelle Belästigung/Sexismus usw. gebildet hat und dass speziell dieses Problem jetzt etwas mehr im Rampenlicht steht. Ich will das hier gar nicht runtermachen oder relativieren/davon ablenken. Aber ich habe oft das Gefühl, dass diese Debatte vor allem dank einem gewissen Celebrity-Voyeurismus- bzw. Sexismus-Faktor so medienpräsent ist (so von wegen "Haben Sie's schon gehört?! DIESE hyperattraktive Schauspielerinnen wurde von Weinstein belästigt!!"), die andere Themen eben einfach nicht haben und die dadurch noch unangenehmer sind.
  4. Ich will mich mit diesem Posting nicht wichtigmachen und gerne meine Anonymität wahren. Ich bitte das einfach zu respektieren, auch wenn das es vielleicht schwieriger macht, sich hiermit auseinanderzusetzen, da es keine Sympathiefigur gibt. Mir ist auch nicht daran gelegen, mich als Unschuldslamm darzustellen. Auf meiner Schule gab es mehrere ähnliche "Fälle" wie mich, von denen ich als Schüler Kenntnis hatte, und gegen die ich, weil ich mich einfach unterlegen gefühlt habe bzw. unterlegen war, nicht genug getan habe bzw. die betroffenen Personen selbst nicht gemocht und mich daher nicht mit ihnen solidarisiert habe.
So, das wäre das. Hier mal eine sehr, sehr kurze Zusammenfassung meiner Schulzeit:
Ich hatte als Schüler (und noch dazu Lehrerkind) nur wenige Freunde bzw. keine, die zur selben Schule gingen. Als Kind vom Dorf unter Stadtkindern, die sich schon von der Grundschule her kannten und befreundet waren, wurde ich generell isoliert. Ich war etwas vorlaut und altklug, manchmal arrogant und eigentlich eher (über-)mutig, außer eben bei Mädchen. Als ich mich das erste Mal dazu überwunden hatte, das Mädchen auf meiner Schule, in das ich verknallt war, anzusprechen, wurde ich erst ausgelacht und war kurze Zeit später für meine Mitschüler Staatsfeind Nr. 1.
Alle Arten von verbalen Beleidigungen waren noch das harmloseste. Mir wurde ständig der Stuhl weggezogen, ich wurde wiederholt die große Treppe der Schule runtergeschubst, verprügelt und dabei fotografiert (und die Fotos geteilt), man hat mir alle Arten von absurden Drohungen geschickt und ich konnte mich absolut niemandem anvertrauen, man hat im Internet eine Gruppe gegründet, deren erklärte Absicht es war, dass ich mich umbringe und ich habe mich einfach nur dafür geschämt, dass ich überhaupt existiere. Ich habe nicht mehr nachgedacht darüber, was ich gesagt habe, es war ja eh egal, ich wurde so oder so gehasst. Selbst, als ich mit anderen aus unserer Klasse im Bus zu meinem besten (und einzigen) Freund gefahren bin, war ich die ganze Zeit nur am Heulen - nicht einfach so, sondern weil gefühlt alle mich unaufhörlich beleidigt haben.
Nach und nach habe ich mich immer ungesunder ernährt und leichte Zwangsneurosen entwickelt (einen gewissen Waschzwang und dieses klassische LichtschalteTürenschließ-Ding). Ich weiß nicht, inwieweit das Mobbing oder ich selber da verantwortlich für waren, aber heute vermute ich, unterbewusst hat mir das zumindest "Ersatz-Kontrolle" über ein paar unwichtigere Aspekte meines Lebens gegeben (wie sich der Lichtschalter richtig anfühlt/anhört, hahaha), weil ich über den Rest gefühlt gar keine Kontrolle hatte.
Als der Abistress noch dazu kam und auch meine Eltern mir wegen meiner eher mittelmäßigen Noten noch zusätzlich Druck gemacht haben, hab ich ne chronische Krankheit bekommen. Meine Eltern sitzen wie in einem bekannten Ärzte-Hit am Tisch und fragen, warum ich nicht wie das und das erfolgreiche Arschloch aus meiner Klasse bin, das mich in der täglich Schule mobbt, oder schon arbeite oder eine Freundin habe, warum das andere Arschloch Spenden für irgendein Dritte-Welt-Land gesammelt hat und jetzt ein großes Foto von ihm der Zeitung ist und nicht von mir, sie sagen, dass aus mir nie etwas wird und dass ich eine Strafe Gottes bin.
Zeitgleich habe ich immer wieder von anderen Kindern auf Schulen in meiner Stadt gelesen, die sich nach solchen Vorfällen umgebracht haben, aber hab mich selber für psychisch stabiler gehalten als die. Bis heute rede ich kaum über das alles, es fragt ja auch keiner, auch wenn ich jetzt, nach meiner Unizeit, langsam wieder etwas extrovertierter werde wie früher. Männliche und weibliche Schüler, die in dieser Situation sind, unfreiwillig, nun mal Einzelgänger und haben, meiner Wahrnehmung nach, keine sonderlich große Lobby. Wahrscheinlich gehöre ich so zur ersten Generation, die Cyber-Mobbing über sich ergehen hat lassen. Ich habe nachmittags sehr viel Zeit in der Stadtbücherei oder mit Computerspielen verbracht, um diesem ganzen Elend irgendwie zu entfliehen oder zumindest ein Refugium zu finden. Wahrscheinlich gibt es produktivere Wege, mit sowas klarzukommen, aber das war halt, was ich gemacht habe.
Und jetzt sind halt vermutlich viele so Leute wie ich schon mehr als ein Jahrzehnt erwachsen und werden zwar nicht mehr ständig öffentlich so ausgelacht, psychisch fertiggemacht und physisch angegriffen, aber laufen, mit oder ohne Corona, meistens noch ziemlich alleine und paranoid (ich denke immer noch manchmal, alle anderen hassen mich zumindest hinter meinem Rücken und wollen mich am Liebsten tot sehen, auch wenn sie keine Gruppe auf einem sozialen Netzwerk mehr gründen oder es laut mir gegenüber aussprechen) durch die Welt und versuchen, irgendwie auf die Beine zu kommen, Liebe und einen guten Job zu finden und irgendwie ihre Vergangenheit auszublenden. Leute wundern sich manchmal, dass ich erst mal nuschle oder bei Vielem immer vorsichtig nachfrage oder "verhuscht" bin und mich übermäßig entschuldige, dass ich Leuten manchmal nicht lange in die Augen sehen kann (früher, vor dem Mobbing, wurde ich sogar dafür gelobt, wie gut ich das täte), dass ich ja so belesen sei, aber noch an meinem Selbstbewusstsein arbeiten müsse (wo ich dann am liebsten antworten will, dass ich genug davon gesehen habe, wozu die selbstbewussten Menschen fähig sind und was es braucht, damit sich dieses Selbstbewusstsein richtig entwickeln kann und mich ihre Wertvorstellungen eh grundsätzlich ankotzen) und dass mein Humor manchmal sehr verstörend sei bzw. dass ich bei manchen Dingen sehr "unsensibel"/"kalt" bin.
Erst nach ca. 10 Jahren habe ich mich wieder getraut, eine Frau anzusprechen. Und wieder einen Korb kassiert. Und dann auf der Uni fast jeden Tag einen. Öfters auch drei. An einem Tag acht. Seit Corona keine mehr. Inzwischen hatte ich zumindest eine recht hohe Anzahl erfolgloser Dates und meinen ersten Kuss, allerdings ist es dabei auch bisher geblieben.
Und dann sehe ich halt diese ganzen #MeToo-Artikel und Erfahrungsberichte, oder dieses "Männerwelten" und denke natürlich darüber nach, wie ich mich in der Vergangenheit gegenüber Frauen verhalten habe. Eigentlich immer respektvoll, auch wenn ich ein paar davon etwas plump, aber vollkommen "keusch", angemacht habe. Anderen habe ich ellenlange Liebesbriefe/Gedichte geschrieben, Bilder von ihnen gemalt, oder zumindest aufwendiger angeschrieben. Wäre ich jetzt angeklagt für sexuelle Belästigung, würde ich das Mobbing meiner Schulzeit auch nicht ernsthaft als "Entschuldigung"/strafmildernd anführen; da ist mir meine Eigenverantwortung/mein Erwachsensein bewusst genug. Ich glaube auch nicht, dass irgendwelche Hollywood-Figuren Absolution für solche Vorwürfe erhalten sollten, wenn sich diese zwar erhärten, sie jedoch eine nachweislich schwere Kindheit hatten oder eine Anzahl an Zurückweisungen verarbeiten mussten/nicht so ganz verarbeiten konnten.
Ich würde mir nur mal wünschen, dass man auch mal eine nuanciertere Diskussion über das System führen würde, das diese vielen unterschiedlichen Arten von Leid/Macht und Ohnmacht begünstigt und wie man es ändert, dass man mehr über Schönheitsstandards und Klassen-/Herkunfts-/Religionsunterschiede (damit meine ich jetzt nicht nur Christentum/Islam oder so sondern auch religiös geprägte Landbevölkerung/eher säkuläre Stadtbewohner o. ä.) usw. diskutiert und wie sie zu sowas führen, weil da meiner Meinung nach so viel mehr drinsteckt als dieser "Antagonismus" zwischen zwei leicht zu definierenden Gruppen (bei MeToo sind es ja meist "Junge Frauen, die am Anfang ihrer Karriere stehen" gegen "ältere Männer in Machtpositionen"). Deswegen dieser Thread.
Habt ihr ähnliche Erfahrungen gemacht? Was meint ihr?

2020.05.13 23:46 RamanPathak Can't make money from the Casino Heist.

Hi, I have been having issues with the Casino Heist and I can't find anything related to this online. It's a long story but please bear with me, if anybody could help me, I'd appreciate it because I am lost at this point.
On April 14th, I was one of the players who had their character wiped, losing all my properties. They were all back the next day, but my Arcade was missing all upgrades. I also got a call from Yung Ancestor to do his missions, despite already having completed them before the wipe.
I sent a ticket to Rockstar and they replied that I need to repeat the first Heist Setup mission, and that should return my Arcade upgrades as well as the Heist progress. I did that but when I returned, the Arcade was still in stock condition. So I did the Vault scope-out mission too. Strange things happened after that.
I returned back to the Arcade and it was still stock, and it directed me to the board to setup the Heist, with all the tutorial dialogue, as if I was doing it for the first time. I set it up, then exit and entered again. My Arcade upgrades were back, but my Heist was completely reset. I had a Big Con Heist active before the wipe, now it was replaced by the new heist that I set up, however, the Gruppe 6 van from the previous Heist was still parked inside. I was also missing the Casino Model upgrade.
Packie also disappeared as an available gunman. I still have his award unlocked, but he appears unavailable on the board. His van now spawns in freemode but when I enter, nothing happens and in some cases, he and his partner exit the van and walk away.
Back to the Heist, I completed the "new" one with a friend, all the cutscenes and dialogue played as if we were doing it for the first time. After we completed the Heist, neither of us got any money and the transaction log was empty.
I also helped that same friend complete his hosted Heist on this character. He got paid and I didn't. So I can't earn any money from the Casino Heist.
This issue only happens on my main character. When I use my other character during the Heist, I get paid. So it is probably tied to the character wipe.
I contacted Rockstar about this numerous times but their responses were always off-topic. The last time I wrote to them, I got a reply asking if I had seen the park cutscene with Lester. I replied that I obviously did, because I have completed the Heist before the wipe. So they replied asking for the exact date when I completed the Heist and a bunch of stuff that did not make any sense. Infuriating.
If anybody has a similar experience or has any insight on this, I would greatly appreciate it. I posted about this before, in much less detail and got minimal attention. If this post is against the sub rules, please let me know.
Thanks.

2019.07.09 07:47 EinDenker Faith on the March Teil 2

Jetzt berichtet Macmillan über seine Kindheit. Religiös, aber nie aktiv verlor er seine Schwester durch eine Krankheit als er 13 war. Dies war für ihn nach eigenen Bekunden der Auslöser religiös extrem aktiv zu werden. Mit 16 wollte er dann Pastor werden. Doch aus seinen Theologieseminar wurde nichts, denn er hatte einen Nervenzusammenbruch.
Sein Vater gab ihm Geld, er zog allein nach Boston und suchte einen Weg seinen Glauben auszuleben. Nach einer Versammlung beschloss er dann die Moody Schule in Northfield zu besuchen um Missionar zu werden, da er als Pastor gescheitert war.
Doch bevor er sich anmelden konnte, kam er in den Kontakt mit Bibelforschern und den Schriftstudien Bd. 1. Hier folgt natürlich ein Loblied auf das Buch. Ich kann nur empfehlen, sich das mal durchzulesen (gibt es kostenlos online). Dort drin steht ziemlich amüsanter Unsinn.
Today many, especially relatives and friends, cannot understand why it is that, when one becomes really acuainted with the work of Jehovah's Witnesses and accepts Bible truth and begins to preach them, he sometimes appears to be a little extreme at first.
Wow. Er räumt als ein, das man am Anfang gelegentlich gegenüber Familienangehörigen und Freunden extrem wirkt. Später hat sich der Sozialkreis damit abgefunden, aber am Anfang macht sich eine Veränderung zum Fanatiker bemerkbar. Was hier positiv klingen soll, deutet auf ein Merkmal einer destruktiven Gruppierung hin.
Er sieht es bei sich als positive Veränderung. Doch stellen wir uns einen jungen Mann vor, traumatisiert vom Tod der Schwester, auf der Suche nach einer Hoffnung, seine Träume durch einen Nervenzusammenbruch zerstört findet eine neue Gruppe, welcher er sich anschließt und die ihn so motiviert, das er etwas extrem wirkt. Also hätte ich so jemand in meinem Freundeskreis, würde ich mir Sorgen machen.
After the talk I was delighted to meet the speaker. He was an extremly kind man.... His willingness to talk to me impressed me greatly, because I knew of no man of his importance on the puplic platform who would talk face to face with young people from his audience after his lectures.
Oh man. Da hat Onkel Russell mit Young Sheldon mit dem jungen Macmillan geredet und das war wie es scheint episch. Jemand mit "seiner Bedeutung" redet mit einem jungen Zuhörer. Boah eh, das schreit ja sowas von nach Menschenverehrung. Andere gehen, wie weiter ausgeführt wird. Aber jemand, der einen eigenen Kult gründen will, eine Monatszeitschrift absetzen will und von Buchverkäufen lebt, wird wohl gut beraten sein, auch mit jüngeren Leuten zu reden, die mit seinen Büchern effizient hausieren gehen können.
1900 Taufe, Juli 1901 Missionardienst, September 1901 Einladung von Macmillan durch Russell ins Bethel. Macmillan hatte zwischenzeitlich seine Eltern verloren und kein zu Hause mehr, Russell sagte das Bethel wäre sein zu Hause. Ähm, ja. Andere ziehen halt aus, Arbeiten und suchen sich ein zu Hause.
Macmillan taufte 1906 J.F. Rutherford.
C.T. Russell had no idea of building a strongly knit organisation. At that time we saw no need for it. We expected 1914 would mark the end of this system of things on earth.
Russell wollte eine lockere Bibeltruppe, Rutherford dann später eine Kult-Struktur. Könnte es sein das Macmillan jemand nicht mochte? Außerdem, hier wird das Jahr 1914 mit dem richtigen Kontext genannt. Russell ging nicht von irgendetwas symbolischen aus, er hatte Harmageddon für das Jahr 1914 (im Oktober) vorhergesagt.
That was a highly interesting time because a few of us seriously thought we were going to heaven during the first week of that October.
Sie erwarteten also in der ersten Oktoberwoche des Jahres 1914 in den Himmel zu kommen, in diesem Kontext wäre auch Harmagedon und die Erfüllung der Prophezeiung zu 1914. Der 1. WK begann am 28.Juli 1914. Laut der Lehre der ZJ hätte Jesus Satan zur Erde geschleudert.
Schauen wir dazu mal in das Offenbarungsbuch, S. 180:
Es handelt sich vielmehr um die Geburt des Königreiches Gottes als Realität im Jahre 1914, bei der Jesus — der sich nun schon fast 2 000 Jahre im Himmel befindet — als König inthronisiert wird (Offenbarung 12:10).
Also alle Prophezeiungen deuten auf Oktober 1914 hin. Aber Jesus macht schon mal vorher Budenschwung, schmeißt Satan aus dem Himmel und...? Nein.
Die 2 520 Jahre begannen im Oktober 607 v. u. Z., als Jerusalem in die Hände der Babylonier fiel und der davidische König gestürzt wurde. Sie endeten im Oktober 1914. Damals gingen die „bestimmten Zeiten der Nationen“ zu Ende und Jesus Christus wurde von Gott als König im Himmel eingesetzt (Psalm 2:1-6; Daniel 7:13, 14).
Quelle
Und nun wieder das Offenbarungsbuch S. 181:
Nun, am Tag des Herrn, sagt er zu Satan nicht mehr nur: „Jehova schelte dich.“ Dies ist eine Gerichtszeit, weshalb Jesus in seiner Stellung als Michael den bösen Satan und seine Dämonenengel aus dem Himmel wirft (Judas 9; Offenbarung 1:10). Es ist äußerst passend, daß Jesus dies tut, weil er der neu eingesetzte König ist.
Die Geschichte von Macmillan macht Sinn, die vorgegebenen Erwartungen auch. Jedoch schaut man sich den aktuellen Flickenteppich an, versteht man das Problem, was bei Russells Auslegung entstand.
Das Königreich wird bei Jesu Inthronisierung geboren. In seiner Stellung ist Jesus seit Oktober 1914. Als neu eingesetzter König wirft er Satan im Oktober 1914 oder später aus dem Himmel. Nur was macht nun das Jahr 1914 dann noch relevant? Ein Krieg der schon im Sommer begann und nichts mit der Vorhersage zu tun hat?
Die ganze, nachträglich konstruierte Theologie um das Jahr 1914 ist ein Kartenhaus. Macmillan zeigt auch die Ursache.
Am 30. September 1914 hielt Macmillan einen Vortrag zum Thema:
The end of all things is at hand; Therefore let us be sober, watchful and pray.
Das Thema war sicherlich von Rutherford vorgegeben. "Das Ende aller Dinge greifbar nahe,..." ist jetzt nicht unbedingt ein Thema was keine Weltuntergangsstimmung fördert. In diesem Zusammenhang sagte Macmillan:
"This is probably the last puplic address I shall ever deliver because we shall be going home soon."
Also er rechnete fest damit, das er Oktober 1914 in den Himmel entrückt wird.
Diese Gruppe kaputter, endzeitgeiler Typen hatte sich aber verspekuliert. Sie haben in der Bibel etwas lesen wollen und mit Pyramiden und anderen Schwachsinn Zeiten berechnen wollen.
Doch am 1. Oktober passierte... NICHTS. Wie sehr man darauf hoffte, sieht man in den Aussagen von Macmillan. Doch, was macht ein ertappter Lügner?
"The gentile times have ended, their kings have had their day."
Russell betrat mit dieser Aussage den Frühstücksraum. „Der ‚Heiden Zeit‘ ist nun zu End’, der Kön’ge Tag vorbei.“ Wie es das Jahrbuch 2014 auf den 174 sagt und blumig lobt.
Ganz klar war der 1. Oktober gesetzt. Nun, am 2. Oktober betrat ein ernüchterter Russell den Frühstücksraum und musste irgendeine Story erfinden um das Schisma seiner jungen Bewegung irgendwie einzudämmen.
Nun teilte er Macmillan der eigentlich schon im Himmel sein wollte, für einen Vortrag ein. Diese Story kennen sicher viele Zeugen. Russell, der Unsinn vorhergesagt hatte, schob jetzt einfach einen anderen Redner in die erste Reihe zum Gespött, um von seiner falschen Prophezeiung abzulenken. Macmillan musste sich nun etwas basteln, was seinen Irrtum basierend auf den Aussagen seines großen Idols - Russell - schönfärbte.
Macmillan zitiert nun aus einem Vortrag Russells:
"If October 1915 should pass, and we should find ourselves still here and matters going on very much as they are at present, ..., then we would think, have we been expecting the wrong thing at the right time? The Lord's will might permit this."
Oha. Russell sagt kackendreist: bis Oktober 1915 kommt das Taxi in den Himmel. Ist es bis dahin nicht da, haben wir das Falsche zum richtigen Zeitpunkt erwartet. Sprich: Wenn das Ende nicht kommt, deuten wir einfach ein Ereignis im Jahre 1914 passend.
This date is reckoned from secular and Biblical history as the fall of 607 b.c.
Also 607 v.u.Z. ist vieles - aber weder wissenschaftlich noch biblisch haltbar. Selbst zur Zeit Russells war das Datum nicht belegbar. Gerade wenn man sich mit der Bibel in der Ursprache befasst hätte.
Now, of course, the date 1914 itself is not given in the Bible. Neither was the date of Jesus first advent, for that matter, yet the Jews were expecting him.
Ganz große Gedankenakrobatik. Er vergleicht hier eine komplett falsche Vorhersage mit der Erwartung der Juden das Jesus erscheint. Priester, Johannes der Täufer, Prophezeiungen usw. deuteten laut dem biblischen Bericht darauf hin. Also Jesus geboren wurde, erschienen angeblich Engel. Der Stern der die 3 Weisen aus dem Morgenland führte etc. Alles klar zu lesen. 1914 hingegen ist eine krude, nicht belegbare Verknüpfung von Bibelstellen, welche weder eintraf noch irgendwie durch Ereignisse flankiert wurde.
Although many of us still thougt we would leave this earth, at least by October of 1915,...
Ja, die Rede Russells (siehe weiter oben) entfachte die nächste Endzeithoffnung: Oktober 1915.
Nach belanglosen Argumenten warum 1914 so wichtig ist, ergeht sich Macmillan über die Ansichten Russells hinsichtlich Kommunismus und Sozialismus. So viel zur politischen Neutralität.
Russel stirb nun im Jahr 1916. Rutherford reißt die Macht an sich. Dazu mehr im Teil 3.

2019.03.19 11:36 ProblemsaremyCity Partnersuche in Deutschland, oder auch: Die Lamentierungen eines 20-Jährigen

Hallo l/de,

wenn man sich im Internet nach Hilfe umschaut was die Bewerbung des Selbst bei Frauen angeht, trifft man meistens auf angelsächsische Unterstützung. Nach häufiger versuchter Anwendung dieser Tipps habe ich leider realisiert, dass diese bei mir nicht funktionieren. Beim feiern bin ich entweder mit meinen Freunden beschäftigt, auf den Tanz konzentriert, oder wahlweise so hacke das ich mich mit wachsender Begeisterung eher den Wolpertingern oder dem Boden widme. Mein Online-Dating entspricht eher einem halb funktionierendem Feuerzeug, anstatt einem Leuchtfeuer der Lust wie Tinder es einem verspricht. In Tat nahm ich mir sogar ein Jahr um sportlicher zu werden und besser auf mein äußeres zu achten. Dies brachte einen Fortschritt von gar keinen Matches hin zu Matches mit Leuten die nicht mein Typ sind. Meine Freunde können mir leider auch nicht helfen, da sie wahlweise entweder jeglichen weiblichen Kontakt in der Gruppe konsequent für sich beanspruchen oder wenn sie mal wieder in einer Beziehung sind ungefähr so unmotiviert und unbeweglich werden wie Jumbo nach seinem 45. Mittagessen an diesem Tag. Universität läuft bei mir leider auch nicht, zum einen wegen dem Stress und zum anderen, da alle Leute die ich über die paar Semester kennengelernt habe die Uni geschmissen haben. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Daher wende ich mich nun an das Schwarmdenken von l/de in der Hoffnung das mir einer von euch einen Geheimtipp für die Partnersuche gibt. Denn 20 Jahre ohne mindestens Händchen halten wird langsam schwierig den Eltern zu erklären. :(

Guide to creating a Landser
Foreword - this is pretty much a source page for any information I wish I had while creating my Landser or materials I did use! While this is mostly based on doing an impression in the US, the actual details are near universal. Hope this helps.
Table of contents
Subject Description
Basics Becoming a soldier
Wehrmacht Actually becoming a soldier
Deutsch Speak German
Sources Vendors, get your vendors here
BASICS
1. ACTUAL BASICS
There were 4 main branches in the Wehrmacht that you can choose from: The Heer, Kriegsmarine, Luftwaffe, and Waffen-SS. There are units across the United States and UK/EU that represent all of these, but it is ultimately your decision (mostly based on location) where you will end up.
2. THE HAIR
Most German soldiers did not have crew cuts and none had mops. Nor were there handlebar mustaches. Sideburns are a definite no. They were, for the most part, clean cut soldiers. The noted exception are the Gebirgsjäger -- and even then they were only permitted a centimeter of beard growth. Occasionally, Alter would have pencil style, "hollywood" style, or a toothbrush style mustache. As a new landser, you are NOT permitted to have facial hair.1
And if you have any sort of long or modern hair, you will also need a haircut. Thankfully, there are thousands of pictures of German soldiers (and reenactors) for you to bring to the barber!
Some guidelines: you should have "white walls" -- from Der Erste Zug: "the hair is shaved to at least one inch (if not more) above the ear, then it begins to taper."2 Think Macklemore/undercut. DEZ also provides a PDF file with some nice cuts.3 I also have an Imgur album with some appropriate haircuts for any reasonable length of hair.
3. THE BUILD
This is probably the most overlooked thing by any reenactor, and for any combination of reasons. Most Landsers weren't fat. I am not trying to offend when I say this -- I myself am stocky and short, those are genetics. Nor do I eat a wartime diet! You don't need to eat, live and breath WWII. However, your impression will be cheaper and reenacting will be easier if you aren't an obese couch potato. Do you need to be ten pounds soaking wet? No. Can you be built differently or have disorders, etc, and reenact? Absolutely. But make sure you are in shape enough to run around, march, stand for a long time, be in formation, and other things you may have to do. It should be noted that there were fat soldiers!
4. RACE
Contrary to what you might think, anyone can reenact. Black, white, asian, hispanic, arab... you CAN reenact!
5.YOUR NAME, AGE AND PLACE OF BIRTH
So, you want to be a Landser. Well, you can't be Billy Bob Doe, sorry. You should create a German persona! You're going to need it for your Soldbuch, anyway. The good thing about German names: there are millions and some even have meanings if that's the kind of person you are. The first thing to keep in mind as with all parts of your impression: you are shooting for average. Does that mean you can't be unique? No! Does that mean you get to be Billy Bob Doe because you're unique? No!
Thankfully there are hundreds of websites and real documents with real soldiers' information on them. There are hundreds of social media pages, baby name sites, geneology databases, etc, with German names. You may wish to avoid traditionally Jewish-German names, extremely common names (Müller, Schmidt) or even avoid names by length or syllable. For the most part, however, if it's German or Austrian, anything goes.
The anatomy of a German name:
GIVEN NAME - this is a first name, e.g, Hans, Fritz, Adolf, Hermann, Eberhardt
VON/ZU - this is almost exclusively a nobility title, and these were eliminated from Austrian surnames in 1919, e.g, von Richthofen, zu Guttenberg, von Luck (as you can see these are mostly barons)
SURNAME - the family name, e.g, Koch, Wolf, Bäcker, Hofmann, Zimmermann
So where's the middle name? Most Germans in this period didn't have them. So now that you know what you need, feel free to check out some first names or this handy surname database, with name origins. You can also do your own research, but this is a starting point.
Age is also a pretty simple concept. How old are you? What years does your unit reenact? Assuming you are under 50, and your unit reenacts between 1936-1945, at the earliest you'll have been born between 1886-1895, and at the latest you'll have been born between 1918-1927, give or take. So depending on your age and how old you look, you'll likely have been born between the late 90s (1890s, that is) and the late 20s. Then you can make up whatever month and day, or use your own. Easy!
Place of birth is also similarly easy! You can literally look at a map of Germany, or Austria, and pick a place. Here is a map from 1944, but you get the idea. I would stick between Germany and Austria, although there were obviously many exceptions, and foreign corps. Note: That map is huge, like over 20,000 pixels huge, and if you can't open it, just google WW2 Gau map.
6. SOLDBUCH INFORMATION
If you've never seen a soldbuch, here's the anatomy and some descriptions. I'm going to break this down pretty simply and anything that you don't understand, you can reference DEZ. You want to write this on paper or a text document way before you fill out your actual book, and I'll explain that later.
Item 1: NR - Make up a 1-4 digit number.
Item 2: für (for) - starting rank, it will be some variation of Schütze/Gefreiter(private). Leave this until after you join a unit.
Item 3: leave this blank -- you're just a private, you have no promotions!
Item 4: vor und zuname - your name! Order: FIRST (NICKNAME/TITLE IF APPLICABLE) SURNAME. The nickname will be underlined.
Item 5: erkennungsmarke (dog tag) - leave this blank -- when you have a unit you can watch this handy video on how to fill it out if your unit doesn't have any designated way to do it.
Item 6: blutgruppe - your blood type. - and + didn't exist yet, so A, B, O, or AB.
Item 7: gasmaskengroße - gas mask size, I being largest and III being smallest. III was pretty much only issued to females.
Item 8: wehrnummer - this will be the most difficult part of your soldbuch, if you're a stickler for historical accuracy. The website that used to list the Gau numbers is no longer active. If this changes, this will become simple again. Until then, I recommend scanning through soldbuchs and picking the town and gau number from there. Or, make one up, because that is a choice.
Anatomy of a wehrnummer: WEHRKREIS NUM1/NUM2/NUM3/NUM4
The wehrkreis is the place (Wehrbezirkskommando) where you were recruited. Some only had one office, if there was more than one office, the Wehrkreis was succeded by a roman numeral. For example, Mannheim II. Handy dandy Wehrkreis map
The first number is last two digits of your birth year.
The second number is gau police precint. This is where you're stuck if you don't pick an already created wehrnummer. As far as I can tell, the police precinct numbers are no longer listed online! Either you will have to track someone down privy to this information, make one up, or pick an already established TOWN/PRECINCT combo.
The third number is the serial number of the Wehrstammrollenblatt, or induction sheet. This can be fictional.
The fourth number is any number between 1 and 10.
The second and subsequent pages are pretty self-explanatory and DEZ covers anything that isn't.
7. HANDWRITING
No, this is not a joke. Germans wrote differently than we do. There were 3 kinds of handwriting, but the most common was Sütterlin script. Here is a pretty simple video about it.
The easiest way to learn how to write Sütterlin is to print out a page and get some tracing paper, or get a white board, or freehand it in your freetime, and practice practice practice. You will want to fill out your soldbuch in Sütterlin, so you definetly want to practice and make it look pretty. Here's a nice picture you can copy from. You should also pay attention to German number form.
8. UNIT
As stated in #1, there are four branches you can choose from. This is almost entirely location based. You probably don't want to join a reenactment group on the east coast if you live on the west coast. That being said, here is a list of active American groups. There are also tons of other pages of interest, some involving both kinds of units4, some describing equipment5, and pages describing units outside of the US6. You can do your own research and find a unit that will suit you best.
WEHRMACHT
1. YOUR UNIT AND YOU
So you've joined and axis history reenactment group, and now you need a kit, and some knowledge. Most units will provide a loaner kit and tell you what gear you need to buy. You might not know where to buy that kit, and you might see some chinese sweatshop plastic that you'll think is such a great deal. Hint: it's not. You also need to learn drill, and formations. This is the (dress up) military after all, Landser.
2. YOUR UNIFORM AND KIT
Recall the four branches of military. Assuming you have a unit, you'll know what branch you're in. If you're NOT in a unit, that's what this section will be about. Your kit will be broken down by branch, then by deployment, then by year. It's not as confusing as it may sound. All uniforms and kits will vary a little between units.
This will be broken down by uniform (what you wear) and by kit or accessories (what you're equipped with, and additional items you might carry). Seasonal items and pocket trash are at the end.
I will explain a "complete impression": this is based on the Heer but both the SS and Luftwaffe used these items, with minor differences. If anyone is interested I can break it down by branch to the specifics.
Uniform piece
Feldmütze
Einheitsfeldmütze
Stahlhelm
Diensthemd
Feldbluse
Koppel/Koppelschloss
Unterkleidung
Kielhosen
Socken
Marchstiefel
Schnürrschuhe
*Waffenrock
Feldmütze (sidecap, garrison cap) - M38, M42
Einheitsfeldmütze (skicap) - M43 Note: this is how you handle these hats
Stalhelm (helmet) - M35, M40, M42. Here's a video about the differences.
Diensthemd (service shirt) - pocketed and non-pocketed, knit is more accurate and typically preferred, as well as collared if you're not an officer
Feldbluse (field blouse/tunic) - M36 (typically a "walking out" tunic), M40, M41, M42, M43, M44. Wiki description and video about the most common.
Koppel/Koppelschloss (belt/buckle) - Double hole leather belt and ["Got Mit Uns" army buckle] painted green
Unterkleidung (underwear) - East german long underwear is a good substitue. Here's an album of period looks.
Kielhosen (trousers) - M36, M40, M42, M43, M44. Note: I linked Hessen because they have descriptions.
Socken (socks) - Grey wool striped socks
Marchstiefel ("jackboots"/marching boots) - Tall black polished leather boots, with or without hobnails - this depends on unit
Schnürschuhe (ankle boots) - M37 with hooks, early M44 with eyelets, late M44 were reinforced internally
*Waffenrock (walking out uniform) - video showing dress + drill, the drill I will touch on again in a little bit. This is SS based but very similar.
Kit piece
Erkennungsmarke
Trägerriemen
Patronentaschen
Brotbeutel
Feldflasche
Spaten
Essgeschirr
Gasmaske/Träger
Seitengewehr
Sturmgäpack
Törnister
Zeltbahn
Soldbuch
Kar98K
Erkennungsmarke (dogtags) - Stamped tags, occassionally printed right way up both times
Trägerriemen (y-straps) - Army version with d-loops
Patronentaschen (ammo pouches) - K98, MP40 pouches were carried by officers, and MG pouches were for machine gunners
Brotbeutel (bread bag) - M31 contrary to the name, it held more than just bread
Feldflasche (canteen) - Hundreds of varieties of canteen
Spaten (shovel/entrenching tool) - Folding shovel, Entrenching shovel, this is the non folding type
Essgeschirr (mess tin) - Army green mess tin.
Gasmaske/Träger (gas mask and carrier) - Tin with spring latch and mask
Seitengewehr (bayonet) - Mauser bayonet with frog
Sturmgepäck (A-frame) - A-frame with bag, the bag carried things like rifle kits and spare rations, and it was optional
Törnister (backpack) - Packed and worn on back
Zeltbahn (shelter quarter) - Tented on poles or worn as a poncho
Soldbuch (pay book) - Army version
Kar98K - Rifle. Blank firing is typically preferred over non-firing
Quick exam of items and how they're presented Note: The 3. Panzergrenadier Division have a great page about how and why some of these items are worn.
Seasonal items include the Mantel (great coat), toque, mittens, and fußlappen in the winter. Summer items are DAK based, typically.
Here is an amazing video showcasing all of the different uniform pieces from the beginning of the war to the very end.
Here is a video about DAK gear, and one about NCO DAK gear.
The opposite end of this is winter impressions. (SS based but you get the gist) and even MORE information! Yay.
Lastly! Sanitäter impressions. DEZ has not ONE but TWO! pages about a Sanitäter impression. Note: important video about field hospitals if you're wondering
2.1. POCKET TRASH
I think that this is arguably one of the most important parts of reenactment, but it's often overlooked. Playing dress up and shooting people is great, but there's also living history. And if living history isn't your thing, you might someday be stopped by a GI and be asked to empty your pockets. When all you have is your soldbuch, it can be a little boring.
That said, WWIIsoldier is one of the best websites I've ever seen. It has hundreds of things you could fill your pockets with.
My top suggestions for a start would be:
-a grooming kit complete with period razor, shaving brush, hair comb, mirror and hair tonic/pomade in a tin
-rations
-smokes/tobacco, pipe, zippo
-money, stamps, and a letter or two, risque photos a bonus ;)
For a complete look over of what a Landser may have carried:
Source one
Source two
Source three
Source four
And so on. You get the idea.
2.2 RATIONS
This is equally as important as pocket trash, especially for living history! DEZ has an incredibly detailed account of food in the army and so does the Warfare History Network
There is also an excellent YouTube video describing the ration situation, along with Reenactorguy's overview. Hopefully that covers everything you need to know.
In addition to this, soldiers usually hoarded any food they could in their plethora of pockets, to eat on the go.
3. DRILL
So you've got your kit, and your rifle. Now it's time to learn drill. DEZ provides a great illustrated drill page. There's also a plethora of pages and YouTube videos, but I think this one has the clearest commands and movements. One criticism: don't swing your arm on Gewehr ab. Slam the butt of your rifle into the ground. That is proper form, sorry for anyone who disagrees.
Note: THIS IS HOW SNAPPY THE MOVEMENTS MUST BE
4. FORMATION/TACTICS
This is just as important as drill and you need to do your studying and homework here.
Begin with this Infanterieschule video about Die Gruppes/Der Zug. and follow with this lengthy video covering riflemen, MG gunners, and assistants.
Infanterieschule also made this video about tactics. Note: I love this guy, he's great.
Now if these didn't drill it in your head, this ought to. I love old timey videos, don't you?
I quickly want to touch on the guns here.
For a closer look at machine gunners and riflemen using the Gewehr 43 and then pretty much every other gun because I couldn't find detailed videos like the previous.
Also? Take your hit.
DEUTSCH
I speak German. Not fluently, but I took 5 years of it in school, and I can hold a conversation. None of that matters on the field.
1. COMMANDS & SLANG
I touched on commands in drill, but I think this is so important it warrants its own section. Mind your accent!! MIND YOUR ACCENT!! You sound like Amerikaner. No, it's not pronounced "grver". It's Geh-vehr. Listen to Germans speak. Imitate their accents, even if you don't know the language. Practice. MIND YOUR ACCENT.
Landser slang.
MIND YOUR ACCENT!!!!
2. SPEAKING
This isn't the most important thing you need as a German reenactor, but if you're interested in learning the language, you might as well. Great video here!
I would also suggest learning how to roll your Rs. I wasn't born with the ability to do it. Nope, instead I listened to a lot of Rammstein and did a lot of gross growly mucusy noises with my throat until I could do it. Your method may vary.
3. SONG
Let's learn about ze culture, ja?
We all love singing. The Germans really loved singing. They even had little songbooks (which I would suggest picking up a repro) with the best songs.
As for songs, may I suggest Lili Marleen, or Erika, or Sieg Heil Viktoria, or Lore, Lore, or... the list goes on and on.
I would also learn the lyrics to Horst Wessel Lied because that was the German national anthem and you would have known it, along with Deutschland Über Alles.. This is optional, but you never know.
SOURCES
Well, you read through this hell document. Now you want to dive in? Where do you buy this stuff? Where do you learn the lyrics to Erika (without blasting it on repeat, of course)?
1. VENDORS
Each reenactment unit typically has a page with vendors, if these ones aren't good enough for you. There's also several YouTube videos about different pieces from different retailers. Check those out too.
The 12. HJ have a list of vendors that I would say are quality.
And lastly, where would I be without DEZ (it even rhymes!). Here's their list of period stuff and of course, their vendor list.
2. CHANNELS
Feel like wasting the next 6 hours of your day? Enjoy!
  1. Infanterieschule
  2. Panzersoldat1
  3. WW2 Wiking
  4. Reenactorguy
  5. Martins Wehrmacht {German
  6. WWII History & Reenactment
  7. World War Guy
  8. HKSniper

The fourth number is any number between 1 and 10.
The second and subsequent pages are pretty self-explanatory and DEZ covers anything that isn't.
7. HANDWRITING
No, this is not a joke. Germans wrote differently than we do. There were 3 kinds of handwriting, but the most common was Sütterlin script. Here is a pretty simple video about it.
The easiest way to learn how to write Sütterlin is to print out a page and get some tracing paper, or get a white board, or freehand it in your freetime, and practice practice practice. You will want to fill out your soldbuch in Sütterlin, so you definetly want to practice and make it look pretty. Here's a nice picture you can copy from. You should also pay attention to German number form.
8. UNIT
As stated in #1, there are four branches you can choose from. This is almost entirely location based. You probably don't want to join a reenactment group on the east coast if you live on the west coast. That being said, here is a list of active American groups. There are also tons of other pages of interest, some involving both kinds of units4, some describing equipment5, and pages describing units outside of the US6. You can do your own research and find a unit that will suit you best.
WEHRMACHT
1. YOUR UNIT AND YOU
So you've joined and axis history reenactment group, and now you need a kit, and some knowledge. Most units will provide a loaner kit and tell you what gear you need to buy. You might not know where to buy that kit, and you might see some chinese sweatshop plastic that you'll think is such a great deal. Hint: it's not. You also need to learn drill, and formations. This is the (dress up) military after all, Landser.
2. YOUR UNIFORM AND KIT
Recall the four branches of military. Assuming you have a unit, you'll know what branch you're in. If you're NOT in a unit, that's what this section will be about. Your kit will be broken down by branch, then by deployment, then by year. It's not as confusing as it may sound. All uniforms and kits will vary a little between units.
This will be broken down by uniform (what you wear) and by kit or accessories (what you're equipped with, and additional items you might carry). Seasonal items and pocket trash are at the end.
I will explain a "complete impression": this is based on the Heer but both the SS and Luftwaffe used these items, with minor differences. If anyone is interested I can break it down by branch to the specifics.
Uniform piece
Feldmütze
Einheitsfeldmütze
Stahlhelm
Diensthemd
Feldbluse
Koppel/Koppelschloss
Unterkleidung
Kielhosen
Socken
Marchstiefel
Schnürrschuhe
*Waffenrock
Feldmütze (sidecap, garrison cap) - M38, M42
Einheitsfeldmütze (skicap) - M43 Note: this is how you handle these hats
Stalhelm (helmet) - M35, M40, M42. Here's a video about the differences.
Diensthemd (service shirt) - pocketed and non-pocketed, knit is more accurate and typically preferred, as well as collared if you're not an officer
Feldbluse (field blouse/tunic) - M36 (typically a "walking out" tunic), M40, M41, M42, M43, M44. Wiki description and video about the most common.
Koppel/Koppelschloss (belt/buckle) - Double hole leather belt and ["Got Mit Uns" army buckle] painted green
Unterkleidung (underwear) - East german long underwear is a good substitue. Here's an album of period looks.
Kielhosen (trousers) - M36, M40, M42, M43, M44. Note: I linked Hessen because they have descriptions.
Socken (socks) - Grey wool striped socks
Marchstiefel ("jackboots"/marching boots) - Tall black polished leather boots, with or without hobnails - this depends on unit
Schnürschuhe (ankle boots) - M37 with hooks, early M44 with eyelets, late M44 were reinforced internally
*Waffenrock (walking out uniform) - video showing dress + drill, the drill I will touch on again in a little bit. This is SS based but very similar.
Kit piece
Erkennungsmarke
Trägerriemen
Patronentaschen
Brotbeutel
Feldflasche
Spaten
Essgeschirr
Gasmaske/Träger
Seitengewehr
Sturmgäpack
Törnister
Zeltbahn
Soldbuch
Kar98K
Erkennungsmarke (dogtags) - Stamped tags, occassionally printed right way up both times
Trägerriemen (y-straps) - Army version with d-loops
Patronentaschen (ammo pouches) - K98, MP40 pouches were carried by officers, and MG pouches were for machine gunners
Brotbeutel (bread bag) - M31 contrary to the name, it held more than just bread
Feldflasche (canteen) - Hundreds of varieties of canteen
Spaten (shovel/entrenching tool) - Folding shovel, Entrenching shovel, this is the non folding type
Essgeschirr (mess tin) - Army green mess tin.
Gasmaske/Träger (gas mask and carrier) - Tin with spring latch and mask
Seitengewehr (bayonet) - Mauser bayonet with frog
Sturmgepäck (A-frame) - A-frame with bag, the bag carried things like rifle kits and spare rations, and it was optional
Törnister (backpack) - Packed and worn on back
Zeltbahn (shelter quarter) - Tented on poles or worn as a poncho
Soldbuch (pay book) - Army version
Kar98K - Rifle. Blank firing is typically preferred over non-firing
Quick exam of items and how they're presented Note: The 3. Panzergrenadier Division have a great page about how and why some of these items are worn.
Seasonal items include the Mantel (great coat), toque, mittens, and fußlappen in the winter. Summer items are DAK based, typically.
Here is an amazing video showcasing all of the different uniform pieces from the beginning of the war to the very end.
Here is a video about DAK gear, and one about NCO DAK gear.
The opposite end of this is winter impressions. (SS based but you get the gist) and even MORE information! Yay.
Lastly! Sanitäter impressions. DEZ has not ONE but TWO! pages about a Sanitäter impression. Note: important video about field hospitals if you're wondering
2.1. POCKET TRASH
I think that this is arguably one of the most important parts of reenactment, but it's often overlooked. Playing dress up and shooting people is great, but there's also living history. And if living history isn't your thing, you might someday be stopped by a GI and be asked to empty your pockets. When all you have is your soldbuch, it can be a little boring.
That said, WWIIsoldier is one of the best websites I've ever seen. It has hundreds of things you could fill your pockets with.
My top suggestions for a start would be:
-a grooming kit complete with period razor, shaving brush, hair comb, mirror and hair tonic/pomade in a tin
-rations
-smokes/tobacco, pipe, zippo
-money, stamps, and a letter or two, risque photos a bonus ;)
For a complete look over of what a Landser may have carried:
Source one
Source two
Source three
Source four
And so on. You get the idea.
2.2 RATIONS
This is equally as important as pocket trash, especially for living history! DEZ has an incredibly detailed account of food in the army and so does the Warfare History Network
There is also an excellent YouTube video describing the ration situation, along with Reenactorguy's overview. Hopefully that covers everything you need to know.
In addition to this, soldiers usually hoarded any food they could in their plethora of pockets, to eat on the go.
3. DRILL
So you've got your kit, and your rifle. Now it's time to learn drill. DEZ provides a great illustrated drill page. There's also a plethora of pages and YouTube videos, but I think this one has the clearest commands and movements. One criticism: don't swing your arm on Gewehr ab. Slam the butt of your rifle into the ground. That is proper form, sorry for anyone who disagrees.
Note: THIS IS HOW SNAPPY THE MOVEMENTS MUST BE
4. FORMATION/TACTICS
This is just as important as drill and you need to do your studying and homework here.
Begin with this Infanterieschule video about Die Gruppes/Der Zug. and follow with this lengthy video covering riflemen, MG gunners, and assistants.
Infanterieschule also made this video about tactics. Note: I love this guy, he's great.
Now if these didn't drill it in your head, this ought to. I love old timey videos, don't you?
I quickly want to touch on the guns here.
For a closer look at machine gunners and riflemen using the Gewehr 43 and then pretty much every other gun because I couldn't find detailed videos like the previous.
Also? Take your hit.
DEUTSCH
I speak German. Not fluently, but I took 5 years of it in school, and I can hold a conversation. None of that matters on the field.
1. COMMANDS & SLANG
I touched on commands in drill, but I think this is so important it warrants its own section. Mind your accent!! MIND YOUR ACCENT!! You sound like Amerikaner. No, it's not pronounced "grver". It's Geh-vehr. Listen to Germans speak. Imitate their accents, even if you don't know the language. Practice. MIND YOUR ACCENT.
Landser slang.
MIND YOUR ACCENT!!!!
2. SPEAKING
This isn't the most important thing you need as a German reenactor, but if you're interested in learning the language, you might as well. Great video here!
I would also suggest learning how to roll your Rs. I wasn't born with the ability to do it. Nope, instead I listened to a lot of Rammstein and did a lot of gross growly mucusy noises with my throat until I could do it. Your method may vary.
3. SONG
Let's learn about ze culture, ja?
We all love singing. The Germans really loved singing. They even had little songbooks (which I would suggest picking up a repro) with the best songs.
As for songs, may I suggest Lili Marleen, or Erika, or Sieg Heil Viktoria, or Lore, Lore, or... the list goes on and on.
I would also learn the lyrics to Horst Wessel Lied because that was the German national anthem and you would have known it, along with Deutschland Über Alles.. This is optional, but you never know. Note: this is obviously political and NOT a marching song, however if you're interested in the history, I would give them a listen.
SOURCES
Well, you read through this hell document. Now you want to dive in? Where do you buy this stuff? Where do you learn the lyrics to Erika (without blasting it on repeat, of course)?
1. VENDORS
Each reenactment unit typically has a page with vendors, if these ones aren't good enough for you. There's also several YouTube videos about different pieces from different retailers. Check those out too.
The 12. HJ have a list of vendors that I would say are quality.
And lastly, where would I be without DEZ (it even rhymes!). Here's their list of period stuff and of course, their vendor list.
2. CHANNELS
Feel like wasting the next 6 hours of your day? Enjoy!
  1. Infanterieschule
  2. Panzersoldat1
  3. WW2 Wiking
  4. Reenactorguy
  5. Martins Wehrmacht {German
  6. WWII History & Reenactment
  7. World War Guy
  8. HKSniper
  9. BRman102
There's so many good youtubers it's hard to to list them all!

2016.10.15 02:19 only_glutathione Mina åsikter från vad jag har läst, sett och lyssnat på den senaste tiden.

De två senaste åren har jag precis som så många andra på internet läst och lyssnat mycket på saker som händer i Sverige, som inte pratas om förrän det inte längre går att undvika. Men också diverse saker som har varit helt tyst om under hela min uppväxt. De föll nästan som dominobrickor, det ena ämnet ledde till det andra och förstärkte min övertygelse i de föregående.
Börja med dagens och senare års samhälliga och politiska situation. Migrationskrisen, eller flyktingkrisen som det kallas i nyspråk.
I början pratades det om att vi behövde invandring för att klara av att betala pensioner o.s.v. Vi var nära en exakt ersättning, med reproduktionsnivå på ett barn per person, vilket vi fortfarande är. Mer om reproduktionsnivå senare.
Det skulle vara en vinst för Sverige, det var ett kompetensregn och om man var emot invandring fanns det bara en anledning kvar, för allt annat var positivt! Man var rasist, nazist eller främlingsfientlig.
Men sedan lade man märke till SD och undrade vad de tyckte. Deras argument var inte uppenbart rasistiska i min mening, så trotsig som jag är ville jag argumentera deras ståndpunkt i min vardag tills jag får en annan uppfattning. Tino hade de bästa argumenten emot invandring enligt mig.
På den tiden hade epitet som nazist och rasist fortfarande vikt, så jag undersökte vad det innebar. Skolan hade som vanligt gjort ett dåligt jobb på att framföra en balanserad bild. Vart ordet kom ifrån, nationalsocialism hade inte pratats om. Inte heller mycket om situationen i Tyskland innan arbetarpartiet demokratiskt fick makten. Ett fullständigt enormt fokus hade såklart lagts på förintelselägren och antisemitismen. Det är helt enkelt inte intressant. Där finns ingen konflikt. Det är självklart att man fördömer det om man inte är en genuin antisemit, vilket inte många från västvärlden är.
Det intressanta är hur det var ett världskrig, ett ideologiskt krig, ett fruktansvärt krig med flera krigsbrott. Det byggde dessutom på spänningar från ett tidigare världskrig. Det var ett ENORMT komplext krig på grund av hur många länder som var med och alla olika motiv.
Diskussionen runt allt annat än antisemitismen har liksom tystats ner. Om man inte tycker att de allierade gjorde allt rätt och var perfekta hjältar och stoiska beskyddare av rättvisa, så har man fel och är en apologist, en nazist och därför en antisemit som vill massmörda judar.
Man bortser helt från att Tyskland gick från en legendarisk lågkonjunktur till att bli en stormakt på ett par decennier, med flera infrastrukturer som står kvar idag, t.ex. autobahn. Att ryssland svälte sitt folk till den grad att kannibalism blev vanligt, för att producera en armada av pansarvagnar. Att dödssiffran i koncentrationslägren har skrivits ner flera gånger.
Ingen faktisk kritik förs emot nationalsocialism, utan det beblandas med den version av etnontaionalism som Hitler förespråkade. Där etnonationen var en förlängning av evolutionen och de som erövrade världen var den överlägsna människan. Det är åtminstone min tolkning runt deras starka krigiska och expansiva tendenser. Om man bestämt vill beblanda nazism med antisemitism, får man banne mig lämna ordet nationalsocialism ifred, för det är vad Sverige blir om vi går ur EU och stänger gränsen. Vi blir nationalistiska och vi är redan socialistiska sett till världsstandarden.
Det är någonstans här jag börjar undersöka IQ. Läste om det på mensa.se, kollade på intervjuer och presentationer av James Flynn, Charles A. Murray, Richard Lynn och Linda Gottfredson. Kom fram till den radikala slutsatsen att medvetande, och därmed intelligens, är resultatet av gener som interagerar med sin omgivning. Omgivningen kan givetvis vara olika näringsrik o.s.v. - men alla saker lika kommer gener bland annat göra att:
  • Fight-or-flight responsen kommer, och går, olika lätt. MOA-A påverkar detta där mindre effektiva versioner av generna innebär att neurotransmittörerna bryts ner långsammare. En av de dåliga versionerna av MOA-A kallas "krigargenen" och är kraftigt överrepresenterad bland gärningsmän av våldsbrott. Någon som försökt tänka logiskt när ni är arga?
  • Koncentrationer av neurotransmittörer blir olika, balansen därimellan likaså. Detta påverkas av ovan nämnda enzym och dess gen, men även av transporten av aminosyrorna fenylalanin och tryptofan till hjärncellerna, där de är materialet för dopamin och serotonin och dess vidare produkter.
  • Volymen av hjärnan blir olika.
In a large meta-analysis consisting of 88 studies Pietschnig et al. (2015) estimated the correlation between brain volume and intelligence to be about correlation coefficient of 0.24 which equates to 6% variance. Researcher Jakob Pietschnig showed that this strength of the positive association of brain volume and IQ has been overestimated in the literature, but still remains robust. He has stated that "It is tempting to interpret this association in the context of human cognitive evolution and species differences in brain size and cognitive ability, we show that it is not warranted to interpret brain size as an isomorphic proxy of human intelligence differences". Another 2015 study by researcher Stuart J Ritchie found that brain size explained 12% of the variance in intelligence among individuals.
Alla av dessa är uppenbart länkade till IQ, även om de inte förklarar hela skillnaderna själva.
Jag tror de flesta vet att frekvensen av genvarianter är olika bland olika befolkningar. Vi vet redan sedan länge att afrikaner har lägre kranial volym. Det säger som sagt långt ifrån allt. Men sen har vi en högre frekvens av "krigargenen" med. Jag menar inte att peka ut afrikaner specifikt här utan att påpeka att skillnader mellan etniska grupper, raser, folk, vad ni än vill kalla det, finns och ju mer forskning vi gör desto fler skillader kommer hittas och de kommer framstå tydligare. Inte för att de syns bättre på individen, utan för att ingen längre nekar det som alla redan ser. Att olika kulturer (interpersonella relationer och lagar, inte mat, inte musik, inte mode) har vuxit fram på olika världsdelar. Att länder har olika IQ. Läkare är nog närmast denna insikt då de får lära sig att olika etniciteter har olika sjukdomsrisker.
Låt oss tackla ett par saker som sägs om IQ för att förminska dess resultat.
  • Normalt sett syftar IQ på generell intelligens, eller g-faktor.
It is a variable that summarizes positive correlations among different cognitive tasks, reflecting the fact that an individual's performance on one type of cognitive task tends to be comparable to that person's performance on other kinds of cognitive tasks.)
  • IQ är högst ärftligt, med ca 0.75 ärftlighet vid vuxen ålder. Det betyder att dina föräldrars IQ är en bättre indikator än din omgivning, givet att individen inte är undernärd. Bekräftat av tvillingstudier och allmäna adoptionsstudier.
  • IQ test är inte designade för något västerländska eller vita män är bättre på. Bokstäverna är irrelevanta för provet och endast grundläggande aritmatik helt utan siffror används. Det är istället samband av ökande/variabel svårighet man ska förstå. Om denna typ av samband på något vis är till orättvis fördel för västerlänningar får ni gärna förklara hur detta kommer sig, och varför östasiater är bättre än oss.
  • Generell intelligens är inte specifik intelligens, det säger sig självt. Det innebär att man kan vara utmärkt på mattematik och ändå få sämre resultat på IQ-test än någon som är dålig på mattematik. Men den individen som fick bättre resultat är troligtivs bättre på något annat, vare sig det är att skriva, spela spel e.t.c. . Så är det ett sant mått på intelligens? Det är så vitt jag vet inte en enighet på den frågan än. Men det är det bästa vi har, och det gör ett bra jobb på att förutsäga prestanda i arbetsliv och akademia.
Slutligen, om man inte är nöjd med forskningen bakom ras/etniska/folkliga skillnader, be om mer forskning. Forskningsresultaten som finns är minst lika konsekventa som dem inom t.ex. näringslära.
Tillbaka till migrationskrisen. Den svenska arbetsmarknaden kräver praktiskt taget en gymnasieutbildning, och om man vill tjäna mer än en dräglig lön behöver man högskole/universitetsutbildning. Om ursprungsländerna för migranterna är någon indikation på deras IQ landar de flesta på 80-90. Skola ändrar inte på det. Näring har inte förbättrats markant från deras hemländer. Deras hemländer befann sig inte i svält och har tillgång till samma mat som vi har. De kommer aldrig integreras till fullo i arbetsmarknaden, utan majoritieten kommer få lågbetalda jobb, och vara underrepresenterade i jobb som kräver mental ansträngning och teoretisk utbildning. Precis som i USA.
Deras kultur kommer inte att ändras. Deras kvinnosyn och religion kan säkerligen ändras, det tar nog bara en generation, men machokulturen kommer vara kvar. Tendensen till vrede och våld kommer vara kvar. Precis som i USA.
Hur lång tid kommer det ta för en så starkt religiös grupp med stark kulturell identitet att skapa en rörelse lik BLM? Där våld och förstörelse är acceptabelt och den vite mannen är den enda anledningen till att de inte är till fullo representerade på toppen av den sociala och ekonomiska hierarkin?
Faktum är att en majoritet av de som kom hit inte var flyktingar. De var ekonomiska migranter. Man frågas retoriskt "Vem skulle inte göra det?" och svaret är att de flesta skulle det. Heder försvinner snabbt när man ser att man kan få det bättre. Problemet med den typen av immigration är tvåfaldigt. Att det finns miljontals människor som skulle göra det, och att vi har en begränsad budget med vilken vi kan hjälpa ofantligt mycket fler på plats än vi kan integrera (som i regel aldrig kommer lyckas).
Med opportunity loss i tanken har vi skapat ondo i världen i form av svält och utebliven utbildning. För det är där skon klämmer mest hos min humanistiska sida. Att budgeten för bistånd har minskats för att ta hand om dessa människor som fått ge uttryck för sin girighet.
Om vi återgår till den påstådda orsaken till behovet av immigration, reproduktionsnivån, den s.k. demografiska vintern. Det är intressant att det som alla länder i, eller på väg mot demografisk vinter har gemensamt är välstånd. Jag tänker framförallt på Japan, Skandinavien, USA och Kanada. Sydosteuropa, Afrika och sydostasien har inga sådana problem. Andra skillnader är såklart kvinnliga rättigheter, välfärd och IQ. Som någon som funderat mycket på feminism, välfärd, den kvinnliga populationen och dess reproduktiva motivationer lutar jag mot att det är skillnaden.
Centralt för tankegången är att innan teknologin framkommit fanns det ingen garanti att mannen i ett förhållande var den biologiska fadern. Uppenbarligen var motsatsen sann för kvinnan. Det plus att kvinnan blev mer och mer handlingsförlamad ju längre gången hon var innebar att mannen var den som lämnade hemmet och arbetade. Detta var sant i jägar-samlar stadiet och framåt och har troligtvis format vår parbildning och psykologin som leder till den.
Kvinnor som vet att barnet är deras behövde inte lita på sin partners trogenhet utan endast att maten, vattnet och värmen fortsätta komma, samt skydd från externa hot. Bäst mat, vatten, värme och skydd gav bäst odds för kvinnans och barnens överlevnad. För att rikta och sporra mannens arbete sade kvinnan vad hon ville ha härnäst. Därav kom mannens tävlingsinriktan, och kvinnans gnäll.
Eftersom resurser krävs för att barnafödsel samt uppväxt ska lyckas är mannens roll högst nödvändig. Om en kvinna blir gravid med en man som inte förser henne med resurser krävs en annan man, annars riskerar hon sin hälsa samt förlorar ett års fertilitet och sitt rykte. Det betyder att hon behöver hitta en hanrej, och att hon behöver kunna manipulera honom/undanhålla sanningen/ljuga bra nog att han tror att det är hans barn.
Att som man vara kontrollerande eller känna sig hotad av sin partners manliga umgänge när man själv inte är närvarande är förståeligt. De som inte var oroliga har inte längre avkomma i världen.
In more recent history, as a global average, about four or five women reproduced for every one man.
Detta innebär såklart inte att 75-80% av kvinnor hanrejade deras män, eftersom det kan ha varit polygamiska förhållanden, eller ännu mer troligt, seriella reproduktiva förhållanden, där mannen tog en fru eller två efter hans dåvarande fru inte kunde få barn. Abraham i bibeln är nog ett välkänt historiskt exempel.
Men man ska inte glömma att, akten att hanreja sin man är en legitim reproduktionsstrategi, eftersom man får både bättre gener för sin avkomma, och resurserna från en hängiven man, om man lyckas.
Industriella revolutionen kommer. Snart har kvinnan allt hon någonsin kunnat önska sig och mer. Gnället riktas till annat, får en annan form i offentliga forum. Feminism skapas.
Jämnställdhet framkommer. Män har helt plötsligt inte några resurser kvinnan inte redan har eller kan få av staten.
Det är här vikten av att feminism är en förlängning av kvinnlig natur kommer in. Vi har likhet inför lagen. Kvinnor håller alla kort reproduktivt eftersom det finns spermabanker och det är lätt att bara sluta ta p-piller i förhållanden. Flickor får högre betyg än pojkar för samma resultat i skolan. Det finns ingen anledning för feminism längre.
Fast då kollar de på "resultaten" på arbetsmarknaden. Där är män dominanta i inkomst och ledarpositioner. Det förklaras lätt genom att normalfördelningen av män är bredare. Det är större varians. Det innebär att det finns fler av högt IQ och lågt IQ. Om välbetalda arbetsplatser kräver högt IQ och hög utbildning är det tillräcklig förklaring. Att det finns forskning som pekar på att män har upp till 5 IQ högre än kvinnor skulle bara vara bonus för att förklara den skillnaden.
Det är som om det vore i mäns natur att ge kvinnor vad de vill ha, precis som det är i kvinnors natur att gnälla. Vart kommer det sluta?
Men vad har detta med vår reproduktionsnivå att göra?
I ett land med sexuell liberalism, ingen stigma runt skiljsmässor, ingen ekonomisk risk vid byte av partner, där män inte har monopolet på resurser de under en evolutionärt signifikant tid fört till bordet, vad finns kvar för män? I stort blir vi alla hanrejar retroaktivt och får konstant tävla om vem som bär byxorna i hemmet. Det enda som skiljer behandlingen man får av kvinnor är hur man ser ut, och det spelar ingen roll hur dom själva ser ut. Alla tycks förvänta sig Orlando Bloom, Ryan Gosling, Channing Tatum eller George Clooney. Så fort man når någon sorts tröskel vänder det som ett jävla mynt, som för evigt förändrar hur man ser på kvinnor. Helt plötsligt är man inte jobbig längre och alla ler. (källa)
Män rivs ner konstant, blir tillsagda att vara mer feminina i form av känslighet, följa sina drömmar o.s.v. Samtidigt är det bara maskulinitet och resurser som respekteras. Vi skäms ut om vi inte är sexuellt aktiva, vi fördöms offentligt om vi är sexuellt aktiva utanför relationer, vi fördöms av alla om vi är i relationer där vi inte respekteras. Det finns inget "safe space" för män som inte är bland den maskulina eliten när det gäller kvinnor.
Det offentliga forumet måste inse att vi är en sexuellt dimorfisk art. Män och kvinnor har helt olika förutsättningar för att lyckas i skolan, på arbetsmarknaden och på köttmarknaden. Liberalism och jämnställdhet är inte alltid det bästa alternativet. Frihet innebär stratifiering. I vissa fall är det bäst och nödvändigt, som på arbetsmarknaden och troligtvis i skolan. I andra är det inte det, som i könsfrågor.
Jag, precis som en till synes växande grupp andra, lutar åt att inte beblanda mig med kvinnor mer än nödvändigt. MGTOW kallas det. Men Go Their Own Way. Det är ingen kult, rörelse eller grupp. Det är en filosofi om något. TFM gjorde nyss en video som ganska väl beskriver MGTOW och svar på den vanliga kritiken. Vissa saker handlar om en ekonomisk riskbedömning som inte är lika relevant i Sverige. Här handlar det till hundra procent om uttrycket kvinnans natur tar i vårat samhälle.

Kom ihåg: undantag varken bekräftar eller motbevisar regeln. Jag generaliserar mycket men fokusera på om generaliseringen är rimlig, inte på om det finns undantag.

Så vad tycker ni? Vad är anledningen till vår demografiska vinter? Vad är fel på socialnationalism? Borde vi fortfarande vara ute efter jämnställdhet mellan könen och etniciteter? Jag menar detta borde vara diskussionsunderlag för ett par dagar!

2015.11.15 01:04 Jetpack_Jones Michael: The Hidden Story

"We as a people have consistently got things backwards. I know that now. I am not alive, I am dead. I am not rich, I am poor. I am not from Earth at all. Contrary to what you know, life is not life at all. It is all an illusion. You are being controlled by lots of powerful forces you do not understand."
The above is from the first paragraph of the first Tract of Epsilon, I felt this was important to begin the journey of this theory as it may help make a few things clearer. There is something I've noticed lately about this game, that something has to do with time…
There seems to be a few discrepancies when it comes to what year we are currently in, 2013 or not I can't be certain anymore. Whether they're simple mistakes by Rockstar or they mean something more I cannot prove, it just seems highly unlikely they are mistakes as they are very easy to get right.
Sisyphus Theatre
Firstly we have something everyone here has seen and never given it another thought... I noticed the day and date the band Sorry Commode is playing at the Sisyphus Theatre is wrong. The date doesn't match the day in the year 2013. Saturday the 16th of August was not a Saturday in 2013, it was a Friday. So I went about checking what years Saturday the 16th of August also fell on. To my surprise, among other years obviously, it was also in 2008. Saturday is also the first day we enter the world of San Andreas.
This place called the Sisyphus Theatre is also the only place I've seen with a specific date/day. Who was Sisyphus though?
In Greek mythology Sisyphus was the king of Ephyra (now known as Corinth). He was punished for his self-aggrandizing craftiness and deceitfulness by being forced to roll an immense boulder up a hill, only to watch it roll back down; repeating this action for eternity.
Sound familiar? Symbolic of our struggle through this mystery, the music will guide us but the theatre is empty?
Paleto Bay Construction Site
This construction site next to the Ron station in Paleto Bay has a billboard which says coming in 2008 which makes no sense if it were 2013. This site is still being worked on, there are construction workers still working, at night there is a security guard patrolling the area, we get a wanted level if this site is entered at night. Interestingly Bill Binder is also located just down the street from here, he rants about the economic breakdown. Can you remember anything that affected the US economy in 2008, I can...
The global financial crisis (GFC) or global economic crisis is commonly believed to have begun in July 2007 with the credit crunch, when a loss of confidence by US investors in the value of sub-prime mortgages caused a liquidity crisis. This, in turn, resulted in the US Federal Bank injecting a large amount of capital into financial markets. By September 2008, the crisis had worsened as stock markets around the globe crashed and became highly volatile. Consumer confidence hit rock bottom as everyone tightened their belts in fear of what could lie ahead.
Now think about all those houses with signs that say foreclosure in-game, they are literally everywhere! There's also one directly across from this site. Wouldn't this make much more sense if it was 2008, not 2013? We are given the option to cheat the stock market in-game, where we can make billions. There is a prompt we're given in game when we visit the stock market during the story. It says, actions in the real word can have an affect on the stock markets. Well, what if us playing the stock markets, and further raping the economy also has an affect on the GTA world? A couple of other points about this site is that there are also Sorry Commode posters seen on the fence. It is also directly next to a discount store.
Licence Plates
There are coloured tags used on the California licence plates in real life as they are in GTA, this tells us what year that car was registered. Interestingly the year is removed from the licence plates in-game. But we see the colour orange, which they were in 2013, but they were also orange in 2008. Here shows what colours the tags are for all years.
The Big Score
Now for the pièce de résistance... During The Big Score, our last heist. If we choose the subtle option we go about stealing a Gruppe Sechs security truck to gain access inside the bank, along with some fake Gruppe Sechs ID's. Now if it is the year 2013 in-game then explain to me how the fuck the boys just pulled the biggest heist in history with ID's that expired four years ago!? Why would these ID's even say 08/09 in the first place, yet another oversight by R*? I honestly don't believe this is the case.
I edited a short video just to show how weird this whole sequence actually is. Also the 8th month is August, as is the month Sorry Commode are playing at the Sisyphus Theatre.
Other 2008 References
So what does it all mean? Is everything an illusion? Much like the illusion of a UFO on Chiliad. Is Mike trapped in a dream? He does mention in that first scene with Friedlander that he is, quote: "living the dream, and that dream is fucked"... Actually there seems to be a lot of dialogue mentioning the word dream throughout the story dialogue. The movie Capolavoro also talks about the main character being in a dream, and his guilt for the death of his friend. Sounds all too familiar.
The Paleto Bay Egg Clock
What is the reason for this weird clock? I believe I know... First I'll mention that I believe the cracking of the egg is symbolic for cracking the mystery, the mystery of what Mike is keeping from us, the hidden story. I also believe there are possibly two real endings to this mystery/story.
There are two times the egg can be cracked, which means two times something is to be done at 12.00. Midnight is definitely the first time because I believe that's how I got here where Mike is about to change his destiny, Kenny Loggins will mention on the radio at this very moment about guiding us with music. If you haven’t read it please do as it ties in with this post.
To try and prove this point, when I fuck up this sequence a different Kenny Loggins phrase is heard... He says something along the lines of being lost, and stuck in a traffic, which also happens to our characters when we switch to them sometimes. This dialogue I'm sure most of you have heard before and is very early in the story.
I also noticed when Lamar talks about breaking eggs in that one mission online where we actually end up in Blaine County, he says the word eggs many times but the phrase breaking eggs is said TWICE, as in there are two times the egg (mystery) can be cracked. The first time (my theory) actually involves Lamar and it comes right after the mission Chop. And also, if done with correct timing it will be around 12 midnight when we switch to Mike to start the FatheSon mission, interestingly after this mission Epsilon becomes available to Mike.
The Midnight Hour
Remember when Mike quotes Matthew from the Bible after pulling down Madrazo's house? "It's a foolish man who builds his house on sand." Frank then says something like, "I don't think my boy Matthew was talking about that." There is also another interesting phrase from the book of Matthew I found...
At midnight the cry rang out: 'Here's the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!
Is it possible the Matthew quote is referring to Frank switching to Mike at the correct time? Remember this all comes after the mission Chop and I strongly believe the CoM test is trying to tell us something, you will see the first Bleeter post from Brother Adrian right after this mission, if Frank clicks on the link he will automatically receive a text from Brother Adrian where we begin the process.
As for the religion thing, I think it's there to tell us something, and probably not what you think... Have a look and see what day Easter Sunday fell on in 2013, yes, it was on April 1st (April Fools). Why Easter? Obviously we're trying to find an easter egg, the mother of all eater eggs if you will. What's the joke? Well, it's not really 2013 at all, Rockstar you funny rascals! Just a coincidence? Maybe... but try and find a month written in the game that comes before April, the earliest one is May, it is at the Cinema just down from the Sinners Passage mural. Also if you've replayed the first part of this game as much as me you'll start to notice weird things like how much those first few days are weirdly familiar with the traditions of Holy Week, something that is celebrated the week before Easter Sunday, especially when considering the interactions with CoM early in the story.
Also the whole Hill Vally Church thing, why oh why didn't I realise how weird that was before... Donation is at the H ART of godliness, the art of godliness referring to getting in touch with your spiritual self, the only thing Mike has to donate that is worthy is his own life, his money means nothing. But anyway probably getting off track here but the point is that I was already on this specific path well before I made these connections to anything religious, I had no previous knowledge what so ever of anything religious so they really don't matter, it's just these things seem to match the story that is being told, but you have to get things in the right order to see it.
Dead End
The third side to the Paleto Bay sign i believe is telling us there is one dead end which is the ending we currently have.
I believe this is also hinted at during the mission Repossession. When you reach the end of the path there are THREE different garages (doors) we can open. Also for some reason I've also always felt the Bagger (motorcycle) we receive from Lamar may, in some way, represents our Jetpack, a symbol of freedom. But anyway...
Bring 500k
In my previous post about changing Mike's destiny I believe I was wrong with how to make up the extra 500k needed, u/gbajere speculated it could come from the yacht that was stolen from Mike, I did a little research and the only yacht for sale in-game is the Marquis which sells for $413,990 which is very close to $500,000, I've also noticed other things like hidden dialogue from Frank during the FatheSon mission where Frank actually mentions that he is willing to help find the boat. This extra dialogue will only be heard if this mission or also missions prior are done correctly.
This whole thing ties in with Epsilon, the $2 million is taken from them. Another clue towards two paths... During the Epsilon mission Exercising the Truth where you walk/run through the desert there are two trailers there, both of them alluding to each path that can be taken. The one on the right has an old trashed yacht sitting next to it. The one on the left reminds me of Trevor's trailer. I believe after this mission is the moment the $500k may spawn at the Docks as the blueprint map show us hidden collectables, I don't believe these are instructions for us to bring the 500k at all, it makes no sense.
The yacht, also a Marquis seen next to the baby blue Epsilon trailer is missing the propeller. And I'm throwing this out there, but the mast on the first yacht also seems to line up with the peak of Mt Chiliad when you're facing the front.
I also find it odd that we meet Epsilon members at this trailer location anyway, if they're so wealthy then why do we meet here, it seems this mission is trying to tell us something.
Not too far from here is another yacht. Strangely, the exact same bay blue trailer is seen here right next to this yacht, and there are only two yachts that can be found stranded on land, and I know that Rockstar stated that every structure in GTA V was unique and not copied from another. This second yacht doesn't adorn the name Marquis is missing the mast but has a propeller. Perhaps some kind of symbolism? I also find it interesting that a spaceship part can be collected right next to this yacht too, the path toward 100% perhaps? Also for some reason we are attacked by dogs and rednecks for no reason when entering this area, I don't recall that happening anywhere that wasn't protected.
I also caught some pretty weird NPC dialogue at the Docks where I believe the $500k will be found. This happened during the playthru in my last post.
The End
So what does it all mean? It's interesting that 5 years is the amount of time that passed from when Merle Abrahams committed those murders (1999) to when he suffered a heart attack and died in prison (2004), which is also weirdly the same year Mike, Trevor and Brad are in Ludendorff. 2008-2013 is also 5 years, which makes me wonder if something happened to Mike in 2008, we come into the dream where in his reality it is 5 years later. We come into his life to help him realise he can finally accept the truth, that he is dead? Interesting also is the exact time frame the game was developed was 2008-2013 IRL and this San Andreas is based on another San Andreas released in 2004 IRL. But anyway, just some things I was thinking about, hopefully it will make more sense in the near future. But ultimately the leap of faith Mike should take is not the end, I believe it's the beginning, but did we do everything right to get to that point, probably not so nothing happens.
One more thing, I’d like to draw your attention to this picture again, I mentioned in the linked post how Mike looks substantially older than he is in-game, what I didn’t mention though was the weird scar on the left of his forehead. Is it also weird that the song 9 is God may to be alluding to Mike, or so people have speculated… I have reasons to believe this also ties in with Merle Abrahams (the Infinite 8 killer).
With deciding on the people we should kill/spare I believe the answers are all there in the game, you just have to know where to look, or better yet, understand the reality. The Infinite 8 killer to me is Mike as it is his reality, the same as Trevor and maybe even Frank, the 8 victims are people we kill during the story. ie. Jay Norris, Beverly, Abigail etc... and there are clues in that poem by Merle that will tell us who those victims are I believe. We do them an infinite amount of times as the game is played over and over doing the same things, until we understand the truth.
If the actual year of this game is in fact 2008 then Frank is now imprisoned, as is Mike and also Trevor, they are imprisoned on this Lost like island known as San Andreas. They are all the same person, and that person is Mike, or better yet, some sort of dream Mike is having... is he dead? Is this place some sort of purgatory which he must escape by making the correct choices, I believe this is the case. Ever heard of the id, ego and superego? These are the three elements of one personality, switching characters is the same as accessing any one of these three elements at any given time, this is how I see the reality.
If any of this sounds at all familiar then you’ve probably seen a film(s) that has a similar story, Inception, Vanilla Sky, Shutter Island, Point Blank, Purgatory, Capolavoro… it’s not necessarily an original idea, for a game though, especially this one I believe it could be. The story, the real story is so we’ll hidden no one would ever realise… if it weren’t for this.
Anyway, that’s about it for now, thanks for reading I hope it was somewhat worth reading. There is a lot more I’d like to mention to do with death and hospital locations but that can wait as I can’t really fit any more in. But I think the final words in Shutter Island sum up my feelings about Mike very well. If we push hime past that point of killing Jay Norris we have turned him into that monster.
Mike always thought he was the good guy, I think he is.
”If everyone pays attention no one needs to get hurt.” Michael Townley - Prologue
Other things to note:
  • How often the word dream is mentioned in the story. From the beginning with Friedlander.
  • The Prologue shows us the year 2004, then it says 9 years later as we transition from Ludendorff to Los Santos. We are not specifically shown the year 2013.
  • The calendars in Frank's and Trevor's houses have the year removed. Not sure if Mike has a calendar though, which is weird.
  • Saturday the 16th of August 2008 there was a partial lunar eclipse which was the second eclipse of 2008. I remember talk of something in the game files that mention an eclipse or corona. Not sure of this connection though.
  • If we choose to kill Mike in the end the song Sleepwalking will play.
    http://genius.com/The-chain-gang-of-1974-sleepwalking-lyrics
  • Some interesting NPC dialogue… I heard this just after Mike died, I went to check out the Kronos watch ad where it says ”The End of Time” and I heard a NPC mention something to do with paying my taxes which prompted me to say hi, then he said this.
Edit: Just thought I'd mention what I'm currently working on. The first time we crack the egg I believe comes right at the start of the story, specifically right after the mission Chop. And this is where I'm getting more or less stuck. Also I guess this whole thing could be made clearer if explain that I believe everything's on a timer, like when Brad mentions in the Prologue, "We're on a timer so brace yourselves."
For example when we reach the back alley of Frank's house after the mission Repossession Tonya S&F mission will be available, if you think about it, Frank is more likely to go chill with some weed and TV then bed before he bothers with her. If you look at that cutscene you will notice Frank saying, "What the fuck is wrong with you Tonya?" As if to say what have you been doing here all night? Then he mentions he needs to be quick because he's got shit to do, this would make more sense if it were morning and he's ready to go to work for Simeon the next day.
I believe there are little clues to do with timing here too. When we get back to chill with some TV time as Frank the show that will be playing is Steve Haines' show The Underbelly of Paradise, more specifically at the moment when Leonora Johnson is being mentioned, we all know what character confronts the supposed killer of Leonora, the time will be around 10pm. Next if we switch channels as the ad's come on we will see the show Republican Space Rangers, the weird thing here is that if you go to bed at the exact moment one of the characters says, Wake up! Wake up! the next morning will be exactly 7.40am, I have done this easily 20+ times and the sequence never changes, it is always 7.40am... if we then walk to Frank's car then go to Tonya is will be 8.00am which is also when the bell of the CoM church is ringing, it rings through that cutscene, this begins the timer for the next day where at the end we do the mission Chop. Also you'll notice the first time we ever enter San Andreas we can see it is also 8.00am, though weirdly during the cutscene with Mike and Dr. F it is actually 8.05am, then we see Frank's cutscene after and it will be 8.00am. Weird I know.
This is also where the first interaction with Children of the Mountain naturally occurs, by clicking on the link on page 3 of the Bleeter page there is a post from Brother Adrian... We do a test with a timer, if we pause the game during the timed test the time will continue. I believe the first time the egg is cracked is possibly now, as this is around midnight and is also when we can make our first switch from Frank to Mike to begin FatheSon which is also the mission that makes Epsilon available to Mike. And this is where all those little glitches start, Police shootout directly in front of me, Mike pulling out his gun without me touching the controller, Frank's car appearing and then disappearing, Mike's personal car becoming a Taxi - haha that one's my favourite ;) Glitches or not, the only time I heard that unique dialogue from Loggins was when none of these things happened.
Another Bleet I noticed on page 3 was a baseball related one... Absent dad day at the game tomorrow... possible foreshadowing of Mike's abduction the next day if we choose to take Mike on the Epsilon journey? I'm sure there are more of these.
Edit2: Also I believe the time the ghost of Jolene Cranley that shows at 11pm-12midnight may have something to do with the time we take the CoM test as it is around 9.30-10pm when we finish the mission Chop, there is an image of a person falling off a cliff at the beginning of the test, one of the answers is Jock Cranley for Governor? under the image. Perhaps it's related to the two spider webs too, they both show at 1.00am-2.00am, could it also be related to the two egg clocks? Interestingly the midnight hour is also supposed to be when the spirits are at their quietest, what if the trigger we've been searching is this, those two midnight hours in which we perhaps switch to Mike at a particular point in the story. Also midnight being a new day or the door to a new day according to some christians.
So if any of this stuff is actually true then it feels like we can start again, look for clues in a different way. It seems like this path A) the one that looks like a shortcut through the murals paths, the path that saves Mike and also teaches us how to really play out this story in its entirety, and we're probably only beginning to scratch the surface. If the entire game is made this way then it truly is their masterpiece.

2015.11.09 21:43 derkimster Admin Read: MIA Mea Culpa

Achtung Gruppe!
Those of you still here have undoubtedly noticed my relatively conspicuous absence and that many of the sorts of things that I faithfully posted here for years from On This Date In California Weather History to the News & Notes Updates to hazardous weather bulletins to topical articles have been largely absent from this online community the past several months.
The reason for this has been my being so very busy with full-time status at Cal Poly SLO, including a summer class. I have also been busy with work as a security guard when not in class on Fridays & weekends. Aside from that, by getting behind I then feel overwhelmed and not motivated to get caught up when I do have spare time to at least chip away on what I want to post here.
That being said, I have not held back on Twitter which as a social networking platform is somewhat more user-friendly from both the posting and browsing user ends. California Disasters is now up to 598 followers on Twitter.
We are on Twitter here: https://twitter.com/CalDisasters
That being said, I still love Reddit and will resume posting on this subreddit starting with today's On This Date In California Weather History.
Thanks for still being here and your patience will be rewarded!
I also welcome other contributions such as fit in the purview and pattern established for this subreddit.

Questions Answers
I worked at the main Police station in Karlshrue, and again, was impressed by how professional they are.
In Light of this, what is your opinion of other countries police forces, particularly the US?
Good point: German cops are civil servants. I guess that's interesting for foreign redditors to know. Are you familiar with lawblog.de? If so, I have some follow-up questions. Edit: Here are the questions. I am familiar with it.
I understand why you would be for the legalization of Cannabis but would you really be for legalization of Heroine, Cocaine and Crystal Meth? Especially since you must witness yourself the damage they do? Basically just asking if you could explain why you are for the legalization of all drugs. There is simply no point in prosecuting the users. You would have to get the big dealers and those are very smart people and very, very hard to catch.
By legalizing all drugs, you would put all these fucking assholes that make money of other peoples suffering out of a job with the stroke of a pen.
Then you could have out higher quality drugs with less dangerous "extenders"(not sure of the english word, the stuff they put in drugs to make it look like its more than it is). Dealers have been known to put rat poison in cocaine, simply because it is white and looks like coke.
If the state had a monopoly on selling drugs, it would have a much bigger chance to get people to quit doing drugs entirely as it could steer them towards help programs and such.
With the way the laws are know, those who suffer the most are the addicts.
A heroin addict NEEDS his fix. If the police takes away his heroin, he will simply walk around the next corner and rob someone/break into a car to get money to buy a new fix.
I was stopped outside West Station (Bahnhof :p) a few days ago and searched by three plain clothes officers. I'm not from Germany, so I was reluctant to refuse the search. What are my rights in this case in Frankfurt? Do I have any way to stop them searching me? The whole area around the Bahnhof has been proclaimed "verrufener Ort" (notorious area) by the Ministry of Interior. As such, the police can stop anyone and ask for their ID. If you have ever been prosecuted, they have the right to search you, same if you don't have your ID on you or you behave aggressive.
Actually, if you're referring to what I think you're referring to with "verrufener Ort", no cause is needed for the search (§ 36 Abs. 2 Nr. 2/§ 18 Abs. 2 Nr. 1 HSOG). Yeah thanks, I feel stupid now. No cause needed of course, you are right!
Do you believe searches without cause (except for being at a specific place) should be performed in a Rechtsstaat? No, I don't think they should be (except for specific places, like you said).
No, I don't think they should be (except for specific places, like you said). I think I should rephrase my question. Do you think being at a specific place should be enough for a search, or should other restrictions need to apply (such as suspicious behavior)? I think the current regulation is fine.
How has the influence of the Hells Angels developed in the last few years? They basically used to very openly run the entire Bahnhofsviertel scene while now apparently (whether it's related to the recent political attention or not) their influence is severely decreasing. What is your experience with this? Do you think something like the SEK officers getting the shit kicked out of them a couple of years ago could happen again? Secondly, you mention you worked at football games. As an active Eintracht supporter, I'd quite like to hear your opinion about the growing attention to the so-called 'Fanproblem'? I admit the question may seem loaded and there is no denying a recent surge in use of pyrotechnics etc, but what is your opinion on the entire political debate surrounding it? The Angels are present as ever, they simply don't wear their vests/jackets anymore. About the SEK, do you mean the incident where they were trying to get into a nightclub drunk and got into a fight with the bouncers? As you said, your question is very loaded and I simply don't have a solution or a qualified opinion about the whole problem. Ultras are good for the athmosphere, but too prone to violence.
Do you think the football teams should pay their share for all the trouble that happens with football fans? Yes.
Vielen Dank, tolles AMA! Ich hab's auf Englisch geschrieben, um andere englischsprachige Drogenabhängige in Frankfurt zu helfen. Es gibt wenige Information online für Drogenabhängige in Deutschland auf Englisch!
How big is the Neo-Nazi problem, from your experience on the ground? Honestly, if I didn't know how it is in other parts of Germany, I'd say it's almost non-existant.
There are so many immigrants in Frankfurt, neo-nazis wearing neo-nazi brands would simply get their asses kicked.
Every now and they stage protests, announcing 500-1000 neo-nazis and showing up with 50-100, with thousands, if not tens of thousands of protestors protesting them.
They are a pretty pathetic bunch.
Try to come to eastern Germany hinterland. I grew up in a fairly rural area in Sachsen-Anhalt and I can tell you that Neo-Nazis are VERY present. >Honestly, if I didn't know how it is in other parts of Germany.
Is what I wrote. ;) I know its bad over there.
Are you expecting riots if Germany wins EURO 2012? Is there specialized training for mass civil unrest? Not mass riots, most people will be happy obviously.
There will be smaller, local "riots", which will simply consist of large groups of drunken hooligans throwing bottles at the police.
We have very good riot training in my opinion and the German riot police is probably one of the best trained in the world, but there is no training for mass unrest.
I'm just gonna guess that means "Shit hits the fan" scenarios? Yes.
What do you think of the banning of the Blockupy protests by the courts? Do you think they were justified? Yes, the bans were rightful in my opinion. Violent protests have only been prevented by actual good police work and those bans. Many members of the black bloc were stopped even before they reached the city and many had body armour, pepper spray, fire works, batons and the like on them.
I obviously also checked the "other side", and found this. What do you think of their account? (It's a longer text, so you might want to wait until the AMA has concluded to read it at rest. Just reply when you have time.) The night before the big protest on Saturday, the police found around 30 hidden stashes of stones, fire works, etc all along the protest route. Never heard of that. Where did you get that information from? Often times they will wear colorful clothes under their black hoodies and when they are being encased or stopped by police they will simply take them off and it will look to the media as if the police is doing this to random peaceful people. Of course you haven't heard of that, the police never released that information (I'm sure you've never heard of the other tricks I mentioned above either). Source is me, as I was there when they found one of the stashes and heard on the radio about the others.
Does that mean that you think that we (in Germany) would be better off with less restrictive gun laws? If so, why? When I carry a gun, you cannot deal with me by force. You have to use reason and try to persuade me, because I have a way to negate your threat or employment of force. People who think that fists, bats, sticks, or stones don't constitute lethal force watch too much TV, where people take beatings and come out of it with a bloody lip at worst. The fact that the gun makes lethal force easier works solely in favor of the weaker defender, not the stronger attacker If both are armed, the field is level. When I carry a gun, I don't do so because I am looking for a fight, but because I'm looking to be left alone. The gun at my side means that I cannot be forced, only persuaded. I don't carry it because I'm afraid, but because it enables me to be unafraid. It doesn't limit the actions of those who would interact with me through reason, only the actions of those who would do so by force. It removes force from the equation... and that's why carrying a gun is a civilized act.
Are you allowed to carry a back up weapon? No.
How common is knife/gun crime? Knife: Very.
Gun: Very rare compared to the US but it happens.
Are youths with a minority background disproportionately represented amongst the suspects/criminals (not sure how to express myself)? The suspects I mostly deal with are heavy drug users, addicts. They come from almost all age groups, tho rarely very young people, most are 30 and up, tho I have met 80 year old heroin addicts who have been taking heroin for more than 40 years.
But aside from drug users, the majority of suspects of assault/robbery/breaking and entering/etc are youths, yes.
Another favorite claim of the lawblog is that the police is more eager to take and store DNA from suspects than the law allows them to. Not just in single cases, but they ask for voluntary DNA tests of thousands, then take a refusal as grounds for investigation (Anfangsverdacht). The mass DNA tests are a complicated matter, I am no lawyer. I guess it a legal trick, but it is legal. Anfangsverdacht could be anything, anything at all. Its not like the police gets to arrest you because you refused a DNA test. It is voluntary after all. That being said, lawblog.de is being run by a lawyer. Lawyers are paid liars and it is their job to oppose the police and the judical system. I think the lawlblog guy is exaggerating in many cases.
How could I possibly answer this to your satisfaction? If I say it doesn't happen, you will not believe me, if it did happen, I wouldn't tell you. ;) No, that wasn't part of the training. Our english classes were VERY basic and my English was better than our teachers. =/
I know, I still had to ask. :) I got almost all of my English from the internet, watching shows and movies in English and reading English books.
I'm impressed with how fluent you are in English, definitely above Abitur level. Was that part of your training or is there some other reason for that? Just curious. I got a D in English back in school!
What are gun laws like in Germany, or at least in your area? Link to en.wikipedia.org
I assume hunting rifles/shotguns are legal, but what about handguns? Open carry doesn't exist, concealed carry is almost non-existant. For example, in the city I live in (not Frankfurt) with around 300,000 inhabitants, about 10 people have a concealed carry license, as the restrictions to get one are so insanely harsh.
Do you have open/concealed carry laws or are they just straight out banned? Cops in my state are allowed to carry their gun off-duty tho.
Does the difficulty of firing your coworkers ever result in unqualified police keeping their jobs? I'm from the US and this is one of the arguments against having strong unions here. Yes. But those kind of cops are usually put in some dead end job away from the public.
I watch COPS now and then and, while the episodes are of course cut to make them more suspenseful, I wonder how much you worry about "coming home in the evening". Do you really feel that your life is on the line every day? Also, how much of your work is paperwork? From what I experienced with the Bundeswehr so far, they seem hellbent on drowning you in forms. I wonder wheter the police is as bad? No, I don't feel endangered all the time. Most people will still have too much respect/fear to attack you.
When we arrived at the scene, a woman told us that "one of them went into that store". Me and my buddy enter and its a small store with a few PCs for internet upstairs. A clearly visible blood trail leads to the back and up a spiral stair case like this Link to mw2.google.com only it was completely enclosed so I couldn't see shit from downstairs. Looking back I wondered what I would have done if someone had come running down the stairs while I was going up. It was so narrow, if it had actually been a guy wielding a knife, I would have been dead if I wouldn't have shot as soon as he came around the corner. But what if would have been an innocent bystander running from the guy with the knife upstairs?
This is kind of distorted for various reasons that I am not going to get into now, but it is a still a very high crime city (not compared to major cities in the US tho, I guess). Well, we are of course trained to check for signs of intoxication, but I bought myself a special small flashlight (like the ones doctors use) that I can actually shine into peoples eyes without blinding them.
I felt like it is a very safe town, so I am not sure what this "high rate" is in numbers and what the offenses are... where is Frankfurt actually dangerous and what might happen in those areas? I think those statistics are "skewed" by e.g. pickpockets on the airport, right? Frankfurt feels more like a village grown out of proportion a little than a huge financial capital, somehow, and the numbers support that. OK, tell me everything you know about the Bahnhofsviertel and how it works, the different "layers" of society/subcultures there! How does the prostitution there work in terms of business, who owns those huge places and who runs them? I was surprised at how "professional" and detached it all seemed to be... I didn't feel unsafe there, actually. If they want customer, they have to provide security, I guess, right? And it cannot be a coincident all those places are within short walking distance from the banking district. One last thing: is it really part of your training to look at driver's pupils when stopping them as an indication for possible intoxication and then pointing a frakking maglite in their face to test pupil-reaction times to make sure??? I wouldn't exactly call Frankfurt a town. :D There are a few dangerous areas, Sossenheim, Höchst, Bahnhofsgebiet, Allerheiligen, etc. You could get beaten up, robbed (very common). The other day, a guy got stabbed in broad daylight on a busy pedestrian area right next to a police station. Yes, the airport is responsible for a big part of the statistics. Other than collecting rent and throwing out troublemakers, the Angels have almost no contact with the women.
Regarding possession of MJ for personal use, is it really THAT lax?? Even for non-German EU citizens or foreigners? Hells Angels own the brothels and provide security. Women who want to work there rent a room for 100-160€ per day, depending on the location of the brothel, location of their room (the closer to the ground floor, the more expensive), size of the room etc. and then work. All the money they make is theirs to keep, except the rent of course. MJ possession: Yes, it is that lax, even with forgeigners. We had three American tourists the other night with about 1 gram of MJ each. We took their names and adresses, confiscated the pot and then had to let them go on order of the DA. They said they are leaving this weekend to go back to the US and so they will never ever be prosecuted for this.
Where do you recon do most drugs in Frankfurt come from, what are the biggest channels and parties involved? Most drugs come from Holland, Eastern Europe and of course Afghanistan and North Africa via Greece and Macedonia.
When I was in Stuttgart, brass always warned us to not mix it up with the Polizei, as they had a shoot-first-ask-questions-later reputation I think the brass just wanted to scare you, to be honest.
Check here: Link to gawker.com
That being said, I wouldn't try to mess with the German police too much, our patience does run out at some point and if you so much as shove (god beware punch) an officer, you WILL get your ass kicked.
This happened in Frankfurt in my area during the World Cup 2006: Link to www.youtube.com (mind you, the cop didn't just randomly shove the Hells Angels guy, he had told him to leave about 5 times before)
I live in Germany (married to German man) but I am an American citizen. I always carry my passport on me.. is this really required? Could I make a copy of it and carry that around with me instead incase my purse or wallet gets stolen? Whats your Aufenthaltstitel? Unbefristet?
You do not have to carry your passport with you, but I'd recommend it, as the police can really mess up your day if they want to (go to your home with out, look at your passport, if its too far away take you to the station and check fingerprints or even arrest you for 24 hours if they can't get to the passport.
A copy normally isn't enough, but I can't imagine any cop would not accept it, as we obviously know the risk of the real one being stolen/lost.
Is the pay really as good as I am always told? I earn around 2200€ after taxes, but I work alot of overtime, weekends and nights.
From those 2200€ I have to pay my health care, which is around 180€.
but I work alot of overtime, weekends and nights. Included in the pay or extra? Included. And I get payed monthly.
2200 a week? A month? Biweekly? A month.
For my fellow Yankees, that's about $34,000 per year - somewhat less than a rookie cop would make where I live. His health insurance costs either $234/month or $468/month depending on whether krautcop's employer splits the cost with him. The former figure would be just about avergefor man his age in the States, the latter would be a tremendous rip off. Does anybody know for certain how the health insurance is paid for somebody in krautcop's circumstances? The state pays nothing of insurance, the 180€ are paid by myself in full.
Is there an overrepresentation of blondes in our police force and why are there so many hot women ? I have noticed the overrepresentation of blonde women as well and I have no explanation for it! As for the hot women, I guess mostly women who enjoy sports and are healthy join the police.
Was that because you dont question each other's authority in front of the public, or do they just forget about what happened? We try to never question each other in front of the public, but I have pulled aside co-workers who got too worked up and I have been pulled aside. We all have bad days and when the 10th guy is being disrespectful and insulting to you, you might lose it. Thats why you need your fellow officers to help you stay calm sometimes.
how far do you estimate the "dunkelziffer"? (the non-official number) Dunkelziffer is extremely low on murders, almost all are found out about, I think.
Do you prefer the green or the blue uniform? i think the blue one looks far better and modern but i have heard that not everyone likes it. Blue all the way!
How pimped are police cars? They are not and they suck. I would much rather have US police cars. They are actually custom built to suit police needs and they drive friggin Dodge Chargers for gods sake!
What sort of kit does a police officer in Germany carry? Gun, knife, pepper spray, hand cuffs, etc? The same as in the US I guess, minus the Taser. Gun, pepper spray, expendable baton, hand cuffs, gloves, flashlight. I also carry a multi-tool and a safety knife.
Are you able to select your own duty firearm or is it issued? We are issued firearms. Hessen got new guns in 2010, we are now using the H&K P30v2.
Also, it seems that a lot of the German words are very long, is your ticket book really big or do you write really small? We write small. =/
Also, what's your opinion on name-tag or id-numbers for police officers? do you really feel endangered if you show them to the public as the police union always says? Regarding the small number of "planned" personal attacks on police officers it seems just like a lame excuse to me. Do you think it would reduce the number of unnecessary attacks from police officers? or would they just switch their signs as they sometimes already do with their tactic-signs to avoid identification? I think assigned numbers for riot police are fine. I have never heard of number switching and the example you linked doesn't really count. The picture shows a cop from Berlin, BEFORE they got the individual numbering. The numbers in the picture simply show what Hunderschaft (23.), what Zug (3.) and what Gruppe (1 on the uniform / 3 on the helmet) he is from, if I remember this correctly (it differs in each state).
Let's say you catch someone that had been drinking a few beers and was buzzed, and you catch him for a DUI, would you take him into custody, ticket him, or let him go? Like how strict are you with minor offenses? I don't consider DUI a minor offense. There is a legal maximum of what you are allowed to drink and if you are over that limit, I will ticket you and prevent you from driving for that night.
What do you personally think of other police forces from around the world? Have you seen any of them in action ? I have not, only via the Internet. They seem to be a lot harsher elsewhere in the world.
I live in Stuttgart. You state that drug laws in Frankfurt are very lax, do you know anything about Baden-Württemberg and especially Stuttgart? Not that I'd be asking because of any personal interest. :P. Well, theoretically, drug laws are dictated by federal law. But how it is interpreted in a city/region, is up to the local courts/prosecutors. Courts in Frankfurt are very lax, those in Bavaria for example are the exact opposites.
Anyway, thank you for your work. And yes, this comes from a recreational drug user. I can't tell you how it is in your specific city, you'll have to try and search the internet for recent verdicts.
I am an advocate for ending drug prohibition in the US and I was wondering, since you've witnessed it first-hand, if you could shed some light on how that has influenced the drug world and your area itself? Drug prohibiton has not ended in Germany.
I explained how the drug consumtion rooms have influenced the area around it in the OP.
Other than that, I guess people are more relaxed about smoking pot, it is not unusual to have people walking around smoking joints, tho I guess that isn't unusual in the US either.
question: What do you think about smoking weed in public e.g. the Grüneburgpark? What happens if you are caught smoking (I never got caught so far, but I am interested) Your position on legalizing or tolerating drugs seems pretty liberal, what do your co-workers think about that? It depends. After all, it is still illegal, so if you are caught, you're going to get fined unless you are lucky and the officer is like me and will simply throw your pot away. Most of my co-workers are liberal on weed, but many will still prosecute you for it, because it is their job after all and we could get into serious trouble if someone saw us just throwing your weed away or letting you keep it.
What do you think of the kids selling overpriced smack on the Hauptwache? Never seen such an open drug scene anywhere else. The drug scene isn't as localized anymore. Some is at Hauptwache, some at Konstablerwache, some around Allerheiligenstraße, a lot in the Bahnhofsviertel, some in Sossenheim, etc.
Do you know where I can get the cheapest weed? I need LSD too. EDIT: Safety preferred over price. Allerheiligenstraße and the surrounding streets.
As a graduate, I did not have to fill in the application form, other than the security checks part, and I was then interviewed, and did four role plays, that were marked through a tick box system (one of those forms that you fill in with a pencil and it gets fed through a computer to tally up a score). If you got 60% of the ticks, you won a job. I understand fully why this system is in place (although I have serious doubts that it achieves what is intended) but I would be interested to hear how one becomes an officer in Germany and if there is any more/less racism within the institution as a result. As a corollary, how many ethnic minority officers get recruited in Germany? And how much/little racism do you hear from your colleagues on a day to day basis? There is racism of course, this job makes you biased after a while as you certainly know and if you are not careful, this will turn into racism.
This test goes on for 1 1/2 days. First day they have you sitting at a PC and they test your math capabilities, logical thinking, memory, knowledge of German and visual thinking. If you this part, next is sports. Running, bench press and others are tested. Next is a group discussion about a problem, where they see how you argue with others, how you react to opposing opinions and if you are able to convince others of your position. We have quite a few ethnic minorities and I wish there were even more. They are invaluable when dealing with the many "citizens" who never bothered to learn the language of the country they are living in (some of them for 20 years).
Next day is physical examination. How are your eyes, your ears, your lungs, etc. Suprisingly, many of the ethnic minority cops I have met are VERY biased towards immigrants, often against those of their own nativity.
I have got a question concerning behavior that I recently experienced in dealing with the police. I was late night walking home with a friend of mine who had celebrated his birthday and therefore was carrying a box of beer. I was pushing my bike because I was talking to him. Now we get approached by two people looking suspicious, wearing dark clothes, a cap and a hoodie pulled over their heads. Now I was suspecting them to be asking for trouble. Once they are near us, the smaller person puts a torchlight in my face blinding me while the other person asks whether we have had any encounter with the police in the past and upon our negation, he proceeds to ask for our passports. Pretty hammered as i was, but staying calm and not doing anything, I abide by his wish and give it to him. He then starts to mutter strange things into his radio, checking our background and doing all sorts of strange things, like we were criminals. It then dawns upon my drunken mind that I had not seen any verification of their identity so they could basically be thugs trying to mess with us. So I quite boldly ask whether they really are police or are shitting us (literal translation). Upon that, I expected a passport or something, but was promptly showed his gun and no verification at all (after all any idiot could have a gun) followed by a harsh "Is that enough proof?". A plain clothes police officers has to identify himself by showing you his "Dienstausweis" (ID card) and announcing himself as a cop.
Hey Policeman! I live in the more rural area around Frankfurt and realize that out here it's nothing compared to the big city trouble, but I want to thank you for your service anyway. My encounters with the executive force always went well (altough the ones I've avoided maybe wouldn't have) and it's nice to see that cops with web-affinity and anti-prohibition views exist. My question: (1) Do your colleagues think like you, concerning that sensitive matter? (2) What do you think about that trashy police-"documentaries"? Realistic/ too dramatical? (1) I am the most liberal of any police officer I have met concering drug laws, but I am sure many would vote Yes on the legalization of Cannabis, if only to reduce their paperwork. ;)
(2) They are crap. Much of the stuff isn't realistic. The best documentaries I've seen is "Zwischen Rotlicht und Randale" by Spiegel TV and "Vom Schutzmann zum Hassobjekt", also Spiegel TV. Both are available in the usual channels.
Whats the fastest u ever seen someone go on the autobahn? Also are you allowed to race on it? I've gone 260 km/h myself, I've seen people go over 300 km/h. No, you obviously aren't.
US Air Force stationed in Germany here, What is your opinion of the large US military presence here? I realize that we aren't as concentrated in Frankfurt compared to other areas. Do you receive much trouble from Americans? Not at all. I have found Americans to be very friendly and respectful. But damn, you guys get LOUD when you're drunk. ;)
If I see someone is stealing a bike, what am I allowed to do to stop them? (if anything) I assume you are German. Link to dejure.org
>Wird jemand auf frischer Tat betroffen oder verfolgt, so ist, wenn er der Flucht verdächtig ist oder seine Identität nicht sofort festgestellt werden kann, jedermann befugt, ihn auch ohne richterliche Anordnung vorläufig festzunehmen.
You can arrest him (citizens arrest), even with force, tho you have to be responsible with the level of force you use.
Dude, you are awesome. I wish I could buy you a beer. What is your brand? Bitburger all the way!
I have a question, and forgive me if others have already asked it. What made you decide to want to be a police officer? I myself wanted to be an officer when I was 18, but after going through the Junior academy, I realized it was not the life for me. What made you decide that it would be the life for you? Actually, no one asked me that yet.
A lot of my class mates always wanted to join the police, in many cases their parents were officers too.
My parents were both kinda leftist and most certainly not cops. ;)
After the army, I was unsure of what to do and thought to myself "Would be kinda cool to be a cop...". I applied and passed, it wasn't after I had been accepted that I realized this is my dream job.
So I guess I grew into it.
In your experience, is Meth currently an issue or likely to become one, in this region or Germany? Not currently. We had the first ever case of Meth about a month ago, nothing since then. Not sure where this will lead, I hope it stays away though.
