2023.06.08 00:36 carlsquidy Wife stalks me with cameras
I allot at least 4 hours or so into my personal activities and hobbies and I like to have my own space at times assuming she gets the other 20 hours of it.
We have one reolink camera we use for our dog when she’s left home alone. This is placed in the middle of our 750sq ft apartment. Just us two and you can see everything besides the bathroom and a small spot in the kitchen. It has a remote control spinner to see almost the entirety of the apartment.
So this really bothers me when i’m either playing games, laying down on my phone, or doing homework and she’s out with her friends and she shows everyone what i’m doing, what i’m wearing… sometimes without me knowing. I feel like my privacy isn’t really mine anymore and what happens is I have to find it when i’m actually with her and that makes me feel like absolute crap. It’s like a fucking crime to have 4 hours in a given week (sometimes 2, 4 hour periods given my work schedule).
What also happens is over-expectations…. When she’s gone I clean the house, dishes, laundry cleaned and put away. Toilet scrubbed down inside. Bed is mostly always made. Sometimes laundry is not folded because the amount of clothes we have between two people is insane but vacuuming and mops are done frequently as well. Somehow that’s never enough and then i’m asked why I don’t do anything.
I just need some help or criticize me… I feel like i’m going insane.

2023.06.08 00:35 Sad-Phase-4985 Taste of blood when exercising
I'm a 21M, pretty fit and healthy, have been rowing for about a year in university and recently got back to the gym. Never really had any health issues apart from a few heart palpitations that I was told not to worry about. Since forever I can remember tasting blood in my mouth during intense exercise and especially today when I went to gym, after not attending for about a month, I got it extremely bad, alongside chest tightness, sore throat, and dizziness. Although I wasn't able to see any blood. This got so bad that I had to leave the gym after a 10 minute row. Any suggestions would be much appreciated, not sure if I should book a GP appointment or if this could perhaps improve with time and easing back into excersise.

2023.06.08 00:35 blackfyre_94 Issues with apartment complex in North Carolina
Looking for advice on how to handle an issue with my current apartment. A little background, I just renewing my lease which I was hesitant about doing over other issues I've had that have never been probably addressed but with the price of rent in my area I couldn't afford to move elsewhere. Today I woke up to leave work to find a paper in my door for a 5 day late notice in my door for an additional $30 rent fee which also included a $53.50 late fee that was dated for yesterday. I went up to my office today to dispute it but they could not properly explain where the fee was coming from. At first I was told it was because of my pet fee but I was able to counter that with past payment history. Then I was told it was due to renewing my lease and it was from prorated rent but that didn't make since to me. I was also told that at some point there was a $40 credit added to my account at some point and this effected some things but when asking for more clarification as the math didn't add up I was told my the office manager " I don't have time to explain everything" and to get me out of their office they supposedly sent an email to the high up management. I haven't received any sort of update from my complex on the issue as to where the $30 is coming from. From the small amount of research that I have been able to do I've discovered that in the state of NC you are supposed to be provided a 10 day late notice which I was not and when attempting to check the fee through my complex's portal the option to pay the fee is greyed out until the next month's rent is due. I plan to go back to the office tomorrow morning but I feel like it will go about as good as today. What would be my next steps from here as I feel like they are trying to create some fake fee to get a free $80ish out of me.

2023.06.08 00:34 Suzume_896 My Endo Story / Need advice
So, my story begins with my birth. I had to have multiple x-ray scans, because of my displaced hips. Everything turned out fine, though my mom always was worried, it might have "ruined" something within me.
I got my first period when i was 15 years old, quite old considering my family history. These periods weren't painful or extremely bloody, more like a week of brown goo. For the next 3 years i had about 5 periods, all of them just brown goo and nothing else. no pain, no emotions.
Then i got into my first serious relationship, so i started taking birth control. My Gyno (who was also my pediatrician. i lived in a very small village) prescribed it to me right away. My mom always was sceptical of the Pill, because it wasn't natural. But i didn't care. After a few months i changed from the "normal" pill to the progestin pill, because i didn't like having periods and because my gyno said it would be better for me. No word of an endo diagnosis.
After 6 years on the progestin pill, the year of 2020, i decided to go off the pill, because i wasn't comfortable with it. Sex became painful over the years and i had no libido at all. It was ruining my relationship. 8 months after stopping taking it, i got my libido back. But in a way i could have never imagined. I was horny 24/7. I felt lust. I wanted sex. But my partner had no time for me. We started an open relationship (again) and i had the opportunity to "fuck" whoever i wanted. I always asured him, i will always love him, but i was wrong. I realized, i didn't love him anymore. I got all my emotions back, the good and the bad ones. I developed a severe depression. And when i couldn't take it anymore, i broke up with my boyfriend of 8 years.
I moved far away from my ex and all of my family. And this is where my periods got really,really bad. I never felt this before. There was so much blood suddenly. So much pain. At first i thought, this is the "normal" amount of pain and blood. oh boy, was i wrong.
Since i moved away, i tried to get a gyno appointment, but with severe depression (and anxiety), it wasn't easy to call anyone. I finally got an appointment in january 2023, almost 2 years after i moved.
The first appointment was harmless, because it was just talking. I told the gyno about my irregular (18-78 day cycle) and painful periods. 2 weeks later i got my next appointment. this tome with an ultrasound. To this point, i have done a few ultrasounds, so i wasn't scared or anything. The Gyno took the device and "scaned" my insides. As he got to my ovaries, he stopped. His face looked a bit shocked, and tried to make sure, he scanned everything correctly. After that, he asked me if this was my first ultrasound, or even my first gyno appointment. After some questions he told me, that my right ovarie was tripple the size of my left one, and that we had to make some tests. He sometimes dropped the name "endometrioma", but didn't want to scare me. After some tests and a few weeks later, he scanned me again. My ovary grew even bigger. The tests for ovarian cancer came back negative. So he diagnosed me with ovarian endometriosis. He told me, if i wan't to make the pain during periods go away, i have to take the pill again, or have a surgery. I never wanted to take the pill again, because of all the pain during sex, and the suppression of all emotions.
I finally decided to go with the progestin pill, because i am scared of any kind of surgery. And because i am in a commited relationship again. So, i am taking the pill for 4 months now. In two weeks i have my next gyno appointment. My depression got worse again. I am bleeding for the last 4 months (just a little bit everyday).
I always wanted to have children of my own. What should i ask my gyno at the next appointment? Should i get the surgery? Ask for a different pill? Any tipps and tricks?
My aunt (not a blood relative) also had endometriosis. At 56 she was finally "allowed" to have a hysterectomy. She died as a result of the surgery.
please, i need advice.

2023.06.08 00:34 Kuriboh4000 Past 2 deliveries refused to drop the food off at my door, and it is pissing me off
I recently tore my ACL and have trouble getting around, so I occasionally order doordash as I can't really go to the store or restaurants to pick up food. My apartment is super easy, there's an entry vestibule, a door code where you enter the apartment number and I open it, and the elevator is right in front.
The last 2 times I ordered, the dashers would not go to the door, despite specific instructions telling them exactly where and how to do it. One of them didn't even leave the food in the vestibule, they just left it outside in the rain and the food was all soggy (got a full refund). I tip well as I used to drive and know the hassle, but goddamn. I am paying for you to bring it to my door, it is super simple and can be accomplished in like 30 seconds.
Sorry for the rant, it is just getting really annoying

2023.06.08 00:34 Kokonuts457765 Some of my ideas for cannibals
I'd really love to see realistic cannibals. I kind of want like loads of different factions, and you have the choice to gain their trust, or either go to war with them. If you gain their trust, this will enable you to trade and help the tribe with expanding their villages and you can do missions for them, for example going to steal something from a neighbouring tribe who keeps invading their territory, or going to gather food, or another certain item. Going to war would make the tribe very agressive, causing them to actively seek you out, and looking for your base to raid it and steal. If you wipe out a whole tribe, it can cause other tribes to be cautious around you,unless you kill a tribe that another faction didn't like.
Population and expanding:
I'd also love realistic eco-systems, so if you kill out a load of cannibals, it could take days or even months for the population to grow again. Also overtime it would be great if their villages expanded, and also if they react to the season/weather. If it's rainy, then most cannibals will be inside, making tools, or cooking food, or praying. If it's winter, most will be huddled inside, hosting parties, and sleeping/hibernating, or even just sitting by a fire with a blanket made of animal furs. In autumn, it willl be a frenzy of hunting and gathering for winter, making autumn one of the hardest times of year. Food will be scarce, and cannibals will try and steal your food. They will be stressed, and angrier more easily. You may even come across cannibals crying from stress. In spring and summer, you can come across cannibals playing in shallow ponds and rivers and fishing, or making weapons, or paddling in the sea, or hunting food. It would also be great after awhile if the villages expand, from just simple stick huts to medium stone houses.
Slaves, and prisoners and kidnaps.
It would be cool if you could steal cannibals, make then slaves or prisoners too

2023.06.08 00:34 Tau_seti What's the difference in the setting for one and two cups with the Oracle (NOT Oracle Touch)?
My Breville Express died today so I ordered an Oracle (I'll try to get the Oracle repaired and will use it at a future vacation home or for my daughter when she has an apartment of her own). I've been a coffee nerd for 30 years now and my first web site (from 1994-5) was actually about an espresso maker (a Pavoni), and we all agreed that we wanted less hassle, not a new hobby, I have enough of those. My wife and daughter like the automatic steam (I think I'll like it too) and I really like the dual boiler plus, unlike a lot of other coffee nerds, the grinder in the Express has been fine for me and I want a built in grinder.
I'm wondering about the difference between one and two shots. If the grind amount is the same, is one shot basically a ristretto? If I want a really good cup, would I not be better off with two one shots? Or am I missing something here?

2023.06.08 00:34 Blizz1217 2011 Ford Edge Fuel Fill Inlet
Google isn't much help except showing worst case scenario, so coming here.
Last week, I filled up my car with a little bit of gas, but on the way home, I got a warning light coming on to check my fuel fill inlet. Took it into my regular mechanic, they took it apart and cleaned it, put it back together. Been driving fine since, filled normal since.
However, about 30 minutes ago, I filled up my tank again (same gas station, not sure if relevant or not) and same thing happened. I was already without my car this last weekend because of how my paycheck fell, and now I have no money to have it cleaned AGAIN.
I haven't seen any change in how it's running, fuel mileage is still the same, and I'm due to take my car in for a tune-up in a few weeks (had to put off because of how my pay falls in the month).
Looking for advice on what to do. Is it safe to drive, especially since I have college classes and work tomorrow (a total 127 miles of driving just tomorrow)?

2023.06.08 00:33 psooyt AITA for refusing to do any maintenance around my condo building and refusing to compromise because of an argument?
I (24F) purchased a condo last year. My neighbours are all a few years older and every apartment has at least two kids. From what I can tell at least one parent has a very laid back job and is usually around. I work 10hours a day and spend most of my weekends either studying or doing extreme hiking.
Last year when the building was finished and we all moved in we talked about maintenance around the common places. Everyone agreed to split cleaning, gardening and sweeping the parking between apartments except me. I wanted to hire a company to do that. To accommodate my wishes everyone agreed I would pay 100$ monthly and someone else would take my tasks.
I was more than happy and agreed. Well, since that faithful day all I’ve gotten is comments on how lazy I am, how they all have a bunch of kids to take care of and still manage, how the money I pay is not enough (the amount was proposed by them, not me). Last meeting they finally had enough apparently and told me they now wanted 400$ per month. I said no, tried to negotiate to 200$ but they refused. It got really nasty and childish from there on and one person in particular Alex (SAHM dad 31M) said “maybe if you stop bringing a new guy over every weekend you’d have some time for yard work”.
I have ever brought over two guys (one of which was my brother crashing over for the night). I got really worked up and said I wasn’t paying a dime more and wanted a professional company to handle this.
Well, they read up on the laws surrounding our dilemma and found out that I have no legal obligation to maintain anything. I only have a legal obligation to pay if a company is hired (with over 50% of tenants agreeing that a company should be hired). They tried to talk me into going back to our arrangement (200$ now as I had asked) but I refused until Alex apologies sincerely for what he said. I’ve been bombarded with messages calling me childish and an a-hole. Am I wrong here? Like I can actually find time to do maintenance I just rather do something else with my sparse free time.

2023.06.08 00:32 Feisty_Indications_ My green cheek won’t stop screaming no matter what we do
| || |
So this is buddy, we rescued her in 2018 because her owners were selling her, her cage and all the food and toys for only $200 aud which is kind of crazy. They said she was a she and that she had previously been an unofficial service animal to their autistic daughter but she was moving to America and couldn’t take the bird. I have my suspicions that these owners didn’t wean her properly or were bad owners based on some of her behaviour. submitted by Feisty_Indications_ to Conures [link] [comments]
Now issue is that we moved into a new apartment last year (my sister and I) and over the past 2 months or so she screams 90% of the time. She warmed up to the place beautifully and we both WFH so she’s out the majority of the day, she seems to love the place and explores and preens herself everywhere. Recently though she will start screaming at anything, in her cage? Non stop screaming, on my head? Non stop screaming, on the couch? In the kitchen? SCREAMING
We have upstairs neighbours and they’re fine with the sounds but I just feel so bad because it’s all day that she’s going off now
She’s not scared by anything because it happens everywhere and how can she be bored all the time like that??? What do we do?!?
2023.06.08 00:30 LePetitRenardRoux My kitten is an unstoppable ball of energy a few hours after being neutered. He is hardcore parkour all over the house, non-stop. How crucial is the “rest” the doctor ordered? If it’s totally necessary, tips on how to chill him out.
He is jumping on and off the top of the couch (we’ve blocked it will pillows but it feels like that just made it a more fun challenge). I don’t want to put him in a cage, cause that feels like punishment. But he is more energetic than usual. Containg him to 1 room is not an option either due to our open concept apartment (unless we lock him in the bathroom).
We are very concerned that he isn’t calmly resting. Is our concern valid? If being calm is required, how do we go avout that?

2023.06.08 00:30 JeliPuff Felix Vail: The Pedophile Serial Killer Caught After 54 Years (PART 1)
Yesterday I had multiple people ask me to post this, and their comment has 552 likes at the time of me writing this, so I have spent the last day and a half editing, and adding information so it's up to standard. Overall, it has taken me close to a week to make. It probably isn't perfect, but I will edit it if I notice any mistakes. I hope you enjoy ❤
I would like to start this off by saying that this is an incredibly long write-up. This case spans 54 years, and this write-up is over 8650 words long, and is in fact so long that it exceeded the character limit, forcing me to make 2 parts. u/that1guywiththehat
has already covered this case, and their write-up is much shorter. I will link it here, and you can check it out if you'd like. They did a fantastic job. 😊 https://www.reddit.com/UnresolvedMysteries/comments/g3wqcc/after_18yearold_annette_craver_vail_vanishes/
Secondly, this write-up borrows EXTENSIVELY
from "Gone," a 35,500 word book about the life and crimes of Felix Vail. It contains information that you simply cannot find anywhere else, and I'd estimate that around 80% of this write-up uses it's information. While it's extremely long, being over 4 times the length of this write-up, it is well worth the read. I will also link it here so you can check it out if you'd like. https://www.clarionledger.com/story/news/local/felixvailgone/2016/12/29/felix-vail-gone-one-wife-dead-two-other-missing-jerry-mitchell/95895894/
Now with that out of the way...
Born on the 16th of February 1940 to Floyd and Lillie Horton, Mary was popular, beautiful, and well liked. She became homecoming queen at Eunice High School and wrote for the school newspaper. After graduating she began attending McNeese State University where she was so popular that all 5 sororities invited her to join. She eventually chose Chi Omega. https://www.clarionledger.com/gcdn/-mm-/d313713be82928fb5c54a52348e9f0b6fbe9ca88/c=0-232-3288-4617/local/-/media/2016/12/27/JacksonMS/JacksonMS/636184665129485321-mary-horton-0001.jpg?width=300&height=401&fit=crop&format=pjpg&auto=webp(Mary Horton from 1957, as Eunice High School homecoming queen.) A FATEFUL ENCOUNTER
In 1960 she began dating William Felix Vail Sr, who goes by Felix. He was 6’, slender and in the words of another sorority girl “looked like he’d been touched by heaven.” In her diaries and messages to friends, Mary spoke of being happy and excited. However, not everything was sunshine and rainbows for the young couple.
On June 20th, 1960, Mary confided in a friend “I really do love Felix, but I don’t think that I like him anymore. He really is sweet, but we don’t see eye to eye on things.” She requested that a friend set her up on a date with another man in the hopes that Felix would leave her.
In response to this date, he came to Mary saying he suffered from a disease. She asked what disease he had. He meant Mary.
The 2 had a conversation that Mary described as ‘Felix doing all the talking, and her just listening.’ He told her that he had changed, and she said that she had too.
The 2 began dating again, but Mary continued to see other people. She attended a house party with Kelley McFarland, who afterwards heard that Vail was so angry he ‘wanted to kill him.’ McFarland tracked him down, eventually meeting him in dark woods. The 2 exchanged no blows, and they went their separate ways.
After this incident, Mary described herself as “miserable” and Felix as “jealous”, although she reiterated her love for him. There was reportedly an incident at a pool party where Felix “walked up to Mary and just slapped the heck out of her,” according to Mary’s high school boyfriend Leonard Matt.
Despite everything, Mary continued to defend him, calling him a “wonderful person.” THE MARRIAGE
On July 1, 1961, in Eunice, Louisiana, Mary Horton and Felix Vail got married. https://www.clarionledger.com/gcdn/-mm-/3a212b032aef874dfc60297c45f3a63946f5aeee/c=0-304-1765-2658/local/-/media/2016/12/28/JacksonMS/JacksonMS/636185193505145184-1022maryhorton003.JPG?width=300&height=401&fit=crop&format=pjpg&auto=webp(Mary Horton in her wedding dress, July 1st, 1961.)
In the fall of that year, Mary began her job as a second-grade teacher at Moss Bluff Elementary School. That December, she found out she was pregnant. Another teacher, Myrtis Quinilty said Felix didn’t want a child.
Her sister-in-law, Sue Jordan, told Mary the only reason Vail believed she wanted to get married was to have a baby, and not because of him. Mary blamed herself, saying “I can see, looking back, from many things I said how they could have been misunderstood.” Mary insisted that the couple were happy but did comment on how unattractive she felt while pregnant, a sentiment that Felix shared.
On their anniversary, Mary gave birth to William Felix Vail Jr, who they called Bill. https://www.clarionledger.com/gcdn/-mm-/c701d4cdc0e5ff127e79b575a1c137adfa57d585/c=0-0-180-240/local/-/media/2016/12/28/JacksonMS/JacksonMS/636185195986996911-TCLBrd-08-11-2016-ClarionLedger-1-A001-2016-08-10-IMG-636047953682196834-M-1-1-G0FAJ00I-L860703094-IMG-636047953682196834-M-1-1-G0FAJ00I.jpg?width=180&height=240&fit=crop&format=pjpg&auto=webp (Mary holding Bill in 1962)
Within a month, Mary suspected that she may be pregnant again. At this time, strange things began to happen in the couple’s apartment. One morning, the couple awoke to find their front door had been removed from its hinges. Another time, they found the front door of their apartment wide open. Nothing was stolen.
Mary began receiving threatening calls. The couple concluded that whoever was calling must be watching them because the caller only ever did it when Felix wasn’t home.
Mary spoke with her mother about divorcing Felix. Her mother, a devout Catholic, urged her daughter to stay and work things out. It would be a fatal mistake. MARY'S DEATH
On October 28th, 1962, at 7:30pm, Felix Vail drove up to Shell Beach saying that his wife had fallen in the water of the Calcasieu River while they were running trot lines. It took 2 days to find her body, close to where Vail had said she disappeared.
Her funeral was held on October 31st. Vail never paid a cent for it.
On November 4th deputies arrested Vail at work, hauling him to jail and questioning him. He refused to take a lie detector test. The coroner ruled Mary’s death an “accidental drowning,” a sentiment not shared by the officers who found her body, or the community at large. Days later, Vail was released without charge, as the D.A declined to prosecute.
Months later, he picked up his son, Bill, from the Louisiana home of his late wife’s aunt and headed for Mississippi. According to Bill years later, Vail told him that he and Mary were out fishing, that a boat had come by and caused a big wave and knocked her out of the boat. Mary didn’t know how to swim, had no life jacket (despite being afraid of water) and so immediately sank and drowned. He said he had almost died trying to rescue her. I will go further in depth into Mary’s death further down this write-up when I go through the investigation that followed, decades later. There are more details that I will cover there. ROBIN SINCLAIR: In this section I will cover his relationship with a girlfriend between the murders of Mary Horton and Sharon Hensley. Vail was a full-time scumbag and I want to illustrate that, as well as show some of the other lives he’s impacted, and other people he’s hurt. I will be covering multiple instances like this one. If you only want to read about the 3 murder victims, feel free to scroll down, I have them clearly marked for convenience.
AN 11 YEAR AGE GAP AND A DEAD-BEAT DAD
In 1967, Vail met a 17-year-old Robin Sinclair at a bus stop in San Diego. (Vail would have been 28 at this time. Large age gaps will be a theme in this write up.) She was spending the summer there with her sister, and the 2 began dating. When summer break ended, she left without him, returning home to San Francisco.
In October of 1968 while attending an Iron Butterflies concert, Vail appeared again. Sinclair took it as a sign that the 2 belonged together. He had his young son Bill, and the 3 bounced from place to place together. Sinclair would later describe how Bill was poorly looked after, neglected and that Vail would even give the young boy drugs. Bill would later recount his father giving him LSD as a child.
While watching over another couple’s home during the Christmas holidays, she learned she was pregnant and shared the news with Vail. He said, “Well, I don’t think you’re emotionally stable enough to handle the pregnancy.” The next morning, Vail and his young son had vanished. A friend told Sinclair that he went back to Mississippi, that it was time for his son to go to school and that he didn’t want to be with her.
Heartbroken, Sinclair would move in with her parents. In August of 1969 she gave birth to her daughter, who she named Simone. She wrote Vail an angry letter, and 2 months later he showed up on her doorstep. She told him to leave, and that she never wanted to see him again. She never did.
Sharon Hensley was born on December 20th, 1948. Growing up in the state capital of Bismarck, North Dakota, she dated football players and belonged to the high school’s 'Demonettes', an award-winning dance team founded by a former Rockette. https://encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcT-drYY1YZjqadja6gpHI_j8-zHNTiww7XDLwZ3pq-m&s (A photo of Sharon Hensley.)
She graduated in 1966, and attended Bismarck Junior College, where she took classes in dance and acting, performing in a play with her older brother, Frank.
In 1967, aged 19, Sharon discovered she was pregnant. Wanting to escape her hometown, she followed her brother Frank and other classmates to San Francisco. After arriving, she stayed in a home for single mothers, where she gave birth to a girl she named “Cherry” after the popular Neil Diamond song. She told friends she wanted to keep the child but was unable to. Two years after leaving for California, Sharon was in jail and her mother, Peggy, headed there with a $5,000 cashier’s check to bail her out. When she returned, Sharon wasn’t with her.
“She said she had lost her daughter,” her younger brother Brian would later say. “She cried almost every night. She was never the same after that.” MEETING VAIL
While house-sitting in a high-rise apartment, Vail would meet his future girlfriend, Sharon. She was 20, and attractive, having even modeled in her teens. They became friends, and then started a relationship despite the 10-year age gap.
While hitchhiking across California, Vail would confess to Hensley that he had killed Mary, something his son Bill overheard. Because of this, Bill would later go to the police to report his own father for murder. The police at first didn’t believe Bill, but after camping out on the front steps, one detective listened. He told the detective that he was hungry, tired of using the drugs his father gave him, that he wanted to go back to school, live like other kids, and that he had overheard his father admit to killing his mother.
At a beach along the Merced River, police found his father and Hensley, carrying a bag of LSD capsules. Police charged the couple with LSD possession and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Vail received a six-month jail sentence, plus three years’ probation, after pleading guilty to a lesser charge of LSD possession.
California police shared their information with Louisiana authorities. Once again, the district attorney in Lake Charles once again passed on prosecuting Vail for murder. Another fatal mistake.
Bill returned to Mississippi to live with his grandparents, who then gained full custody. On January 23rd, 1971, Vail and Sharon showed up in the driveway. Bill thought Vail was there to kill him, and his grandmother had to reassure him that he was safe.
The father and son eventually sat down and had a talk. Vail told Bill that he didn’t blame him for the time he spent in prison, but instead blamed Sharon, which the young boy found strange because “she had nothing to do with it.”
The family wondered how the couple could even legally be in Mississippi if they were supposed to be on probation in California. They couldn’t. After a visit from the Sheriff, the 2 were smuggled out of town and given enough money to get back to the West Coast.
In the Summer of 1972, the couple appeared unannounced at Sharon’s childhood home in Bismarck. The more the family saw of the couple, the more horrified they became. Sharon wore a mini skirt with no panties and had armpit hair and leg hair "like a man." She had been losing weight and losing clumps of hair.
Her younger brother Brian said it felt like his sister had been brainwashed. If someone asked her a question, “either Felix would answer the question for her, or she would look at Felix while she was giving the answer.”
The couple left then North Dakota and traveled to Mississippi, where they stayed with Vail’s family. On the dairy farm the family owned, they helped paint the home. The couple also sunbathed in the nude, drawing the ire of neighbors.
Peggy Hensley received a telephone call from Sharon, who said she and Vail were heading to New Orleans and then to Miami to make pornographic films. She believed it was a cry for help as “what daughter tells her mother she’s going to do a porno?” Sharon’s parents wanted to travel down to get their daughter back but couldn’t. (The 2 did end up shooting pornographic scenes together, but I won’t get into any of that.)
In early 1973, Sharon called and talked of traveling to South America with Vail, where they would eat natural foods and write a book. It was the last conversation the family would ever have with her. Soon after, she would send her final letter. It contained a photo of her holding a pen, captioned “making travel notes.” It was the last picture ever taken of Sharon Hensley. https://www.clarionledger.com/gcdn/-mm-/94195697544ea2e63b0b95e33a6de88a8b4f1e2b/c=0-50-399-276/local/-/media/2016/12/28/JacksonMS/JacksonMS/636185487179588030-Sharon-Hensley.jpg?width=399&height=226&fit=crop&format=pjpg&auto=webp(The last photo ever taken of Sharon.) THE DISAPPEARANCE
In March of 1974, Peggy received a letter from Vail, claiming he was in West Florida. He wrote that he last saw Sharon about a year before in Key West, with an Australian couple that was traveling around the world. All he recalled was the first names of the couple (John and Vanessa), who were talking with Sharon about “island hopping around South America, the West Indies, --- Hawaii for a while, maybe a couple of years in the Philippines, then India, Egypt and the Mediterranean islands and coasts. I don’t know which of these (if any) they decided on or in what order.” Peggy didn't believe a word of it.
In the fall of 1975, Vail’s mother wrote to the Hensley family, saying that her son was surprised the family hadn’t heard from Sharon during that time. Interestingly, Vail told his mother the names of the couple that Sharon left with were Frank and Sally, different names than he had given a year earlier. Vail explained to his mother that before Sharon left, she had burned all her identification cards, got new IDs, and declared that she would become a completely different person.
Bill recalled his father mentioning Sharon. “He said she would never bother anyone ever again.” The words upset Bill, who believed his father had just confessed to another murder. “There was not a soul I could tell about it because I had had my experience in court when I was 8, no one would believe me. It would be my word against his, and no one would believe a 13-year-old.”
SHARON CAMPBELL: I want to talk about this relationship because of the egregious age difference. For reference, Campbell is only 4 years older than Vail’s son.
While riding a bus to north Mississippi in 1975, Vail sat next to 17-year-old Sharon Campbell. Despite being literally twice her age, he commented on how fit she looked, saying "he needed someone like her to keep him fit." In spite of this, she felt flattered and shared her telephone number with him. Not long after she got home, Vail appeared in a yellow Volkswagen bug.
Vail said he wanted Campbell to travel with him, and she told him the only way her parents would allow it was if they got married.
On July 24, 1975, they did, honeymooning in Gulf Shores, Alabama.
In court years later, she would tell prosecutors that they never consummated the marriage because “he was unable to obtain an erection.” (This isn’t relevant, I just wanted to include it out of spite because fuck this guy.)
Several weeks later, she went with Vail to visit his relatives in Louisiana. There, she said a niece told her, “You probably need to know that he killed his first wife --- they arrested him. We all believed that he did it, he drowned her out of a boat.”
Campbell didn't believe them, telling herself that he would be in prison if he was a murderer. But as the months passed by, she concluded that he “had no value in the female gender,” and that “he hated women.”
She later traveled with Vail to his parents’ home in Montpelier. While there, he was outdoors working on the Volkswagen and Campbell walked closer without him noticing. He opened a compartment, and she said she saw “sinister, surgical looking saws of all shapes and sizes in a neat formation.” To her, the sight screamed evil. “It scared me. I said, ‘I’m not going anywhere with you.’” She left, annulled the marriage, and never looked back. It was likely the best decision she ever made.
After the divorce he would marry a woman named Carolyn in 1977. The relationship would end after he cheated on her with a woman named Alexandra Christianson during a double date. When Carolyn called Vail’s mother and asked her if the behavior surprised her, she simply replied “no.”
After being served the divorce papers, Vail smashed his car into her MGB Sports Car. A month later he would call her saying “I love you.” She did not reciprocate. She would later describe Vail as “mentally deranged.”
Alexandra is the woman Vail cheated on Carolyn with. She eventually got married to him in Mexico after he officially divorced Carolyn. Not long after their marriage, she heard that Vail was cheating on her.
After a motorcycle accident, he came to rest up at her condo in Costa Mesa, where she confronted him about the cheating. He reportedly got agitated and said, “you know my first wife died.” When she replied saying he’d told her she drowned, Vail shot back “I could have saved her, but I chose not to.”
After telling him to leave, she went to have a shower. While in the shower, Vail attacked her, wrapping his hands around her neck. Hearing her screams, Alexandra’s young brother came in, grabbing Vail and forcing him to the ground. Vail then left.
Soon after this, she found out she was pregnant. The child was still-born, and Alexandra was heart-broken. She would later lead important investigators to witnesses that were used in Vail's eventual trial.
In part 2, I will cover Vail's final victim Annette Craver, and the lengths her mother went to to finally secure justice.

2023.06.08 00:30 cjwidd Forgotten Favorites: "The Black Page" (2005)
Animosity, "The Black Page
Chaos, all I see is madness, how the hell could anyone let this shit happen?
I think there is a strong case to be made that Animosity was one of the first proper Deathcore bands in the United States. Animosity released their first EP, Hellraiser
, in 2002, and their first album, Shut It Down
in 2003, on Tribunal Records. However, it was their 2005 album, Empires
, with the single, "The Black Page" that really launched their career. Empires
is an absolutely slamming buzzsaw of an album; basically every track is a banger, with notable entries like, "Commoditism", "Holy Shackles", "The Black Page", and "Plutocracy". If you've ever wondered what teenage angst looked like in an early 2000's American suburb, just watch "The Black Page" music video (linked above). The music video is a kind of time capsule for the early days of the genre: young guys (16-17 years old) with a singular focus on jamming, and tearing a house apart in the process, with wild, ballistic energy. You can hear all the hallmarks of the genre forming in Empires
, minor ascending tremolo lines, slamming non sequitur breakdowns, a weird infusion of hip hop / nu metal sounds, two middle fingers for the elites, and a kind of desperate urge to just make it happen - these guys are shooting the video in what looks like the fucking backyard of a duplex.
Animosity offers an unforgiving blend of thrash and hardcore in the vein of death metal and is undoubtedly one of the progenitors of the genre. Go listen to Empires
A note about "Forgotten Favorites":
I've noticed there are a lot of OG metal fans on this sub, and I recognize that for many of you these so-called, "Forgotten Favorites", aren't forgotten at all, and you've kept these songs in your daily rotation for years. I just want to remind everyone that there are also new listeners on this sub, fans who are just going to their first metal concert, who just heard Lorna Shore for the first time on TikTok, who don't know anything about where this genre comes from or its maligned early days. For OG fans, "Forgotten Favorites" is mostly a nostalgia trip, but for new listeners, I hope it provides some historical context and a stepping stone to explore the genre in more depth.

2023.06.08 00:29 Ecstatic-Priority488 How do I (24F) find people with similar interests & make new friends/stop feeling so lonely?
I don't know how to open up about this...
I'm a 5th year medical student (not American), & in these last few semesters, I feel like me and my friends are growing apart. Ever since they've started working they've been less invested in studying medicine & don't attend clinical rotations... & I've been going on my own for the most part. Even if they do attend, they'll leave early & I just study alone in the library.
Don't know what to do really... I kind of given up on the thought of finding friends that I can grow with (not just have fun with from time to time).
If you have any thoughts about this; how to navigate this feeling of loneliness, if it's worth it joining online communities of people with similar interests/hobbies & where to find such communities?

2023.06.08 00:26 glitteredgaze Easy versus impossible
You attack my heart with your mere indifference and how you moved on so swiftly. Four years we held on to the gravity of our the silent understanding, the intimacy of a look, a subtle smile only I could read, the electric buzz of our eyes meeting, and the weaknesses we nurtured into strengths... Gone. All of it vanished since you turned and walked away.
Are you routined in running through lovers? Burning out from one, right on to the next? Never attaching fully until you get reeled in by your partner, right? I know you; never demonstrating agency to take upon yourself your own personal autonomy to make a choice. You see, Safi, I respected you too much to ever make a choice for you. But then, in the absence of your ability to make a choice, you were ghostly flailing around, accepting whatever offer was convenient and easy, ready and willing. And she was. So there you are, locked down and wrapped up within months; new degree, new apartment, new job, and add to the mix, a new girlfriend. Remember my dear, nothing worth having comes easy.
And I am not easy; I am the steady rock of earth's crust, the endless wave of the seas, the heat of the sun's embrace and the gentle breeze caressing your cheek.
Although I burn with pain inside, one day, you will wish on me like a star too far to reach, and I'll feel nothing. Not only am I not easy, I am now impossible.

2023.06.08 00:26 cinnamonsugartoasted AITA for pressing charges against my disabled daughter (35F)?
My wife (65F) and myself (80M) are very wealthy, successful individuals, thanks to my lengthy career as an attorney with my law firm and a large apartment complex my family owns. We have a net worth of around 60M, we own several luxury cars, and three homes that are worth a combined 12M.
Our daughter is our only child and has been very sick for most of her life. She has been receiving palliative care for her chronic illnesses. She was homeschooled for the majority of middle school and high school, and never went to college. She has never had a driver's license. She was a good kid, part of the gifted program, and despite being uneducated she never did anything even remotely rebelious, in fact she had no social life at all and lived with my wife and I until she was 28 years old.
There was a massive family fall out in 2020 when my niece who worked for me at my law firm quit and started her own law firm with one of my law partners. I sued both of them, and they counter-sued me. My daughter and wife started working for me remotely from home. In 2022, I found out that my daughter had been talking to my niece and disclosed to her some private information about my wife that could have had serious legal consequences for her. My wife and I were livid. We fired my daughter, and pressed charges against her, accusing her of stealing 5M from us privately and from my law firm. My daughter had a couple of joint bank accounts with my wife and I, and we allowed her to have access to several of our personal and business bank accounts, which she was allowed to withdraw, transfer, and spend funds at her discretion. We said that she never had our permission and made unauthorized transfers. We then sued her for 10M. We put a lien on her house, so she was unable to sell it, and got a TPO which froze all of her assets. My daughter was unable to afford representation, and settled privately out of court. As part of the settlement, she gave us all of her assets - her 2M home, her inherited shares with an estimated post-tax value of 8M, and her tangible valuables. In exchange we gave her 3000 monthly for 3 years and allowed her to live in the house for 3 years. She went on a month long trip and left the house vacant for a month, so in our eyes she violated the terms of the settlement and we are no longer letting her live in the house or giving her the monthly payments.
My daughter has been issued a 2M felony arrest warrant and will be arrested any day. She has expressed to us that she is terrified of being arrested in large part due to her medical needs and begged us to not do this to her. We want to teach her a lesson for speaking against my wife to my niece. AITA?

2023.06.08 00:26 WildOscar66 Moder Kicking My Butt
Thought I was ready. L4 wolf armor, Darugr Bow, Iron mace. Wolf, Skewers, Serpent Stew and Eyescream. 300 obsidian arrows. Health and stamina potion. Fully rested.
I’ve died 5 times now and have barely put a dent in her health, which regenerates really quickly. The arrows just don’t do it and wolves come, force me to shift to melee and she nukes me. If I try melee on her it doesn’t do much damage and she hits pretty hard. One of the challenges is that she just blows whole mountains apart. No place is safe for more than a moment.
With Bonemass I died once and that was when an Abom joined and night came during the fight, rested wore off. I may try my fang spear instead of mace to spare more stamina. Open to other suggestions. I can dodge her ranged ice attacks most of the time unless another creature arrives.
