It's time to face the facts
Bought it brand new - 2022 Honda Accord Hybrid Sport lunar silver. Price was $32500 + windows tinting $400 + extended warranty 120K miles or 6 years for $1800 + registration and license plates $500 + ceramic covering for $0.
I love it so much I even sold my 9 gen accord coupe V6 because I'm not driving it anymore.
But after driving it for a while I have realize it so noise on a highway it is almost undrivable.
It's time to face the facts. It does need some noise reduction work.
So I wanted to make it fast easy and not crazy expensive. All the materials I've bought from Amazon. I want to do sound deading all around but for now lets start from the hood and roof.
let's see what is under the hood
Hood cover itself is good, made from dense felt and it doesn't give us much space to work with. So we just gonna put some vibration damper. I've used Amazon brand 80 mil or 2 mm thick.
now we done with the hood and the roof is next. Let's see what's there
...and there is absolutely nothing. ZERO. It's unbelievable. Where $32500 msrp were spend for?
Anyway lets work from here. I waned to do it in three layers. First gonna be the same Amazon brand 80 mil or 2 mm thick vibration damper.
Also let's put some on plastic parts. Little bit thinner vibration damper Amazon 70 mil or 1.7 mm.
Second polypropylene foam with foil cover 160 mil or 4 mm thick Siless brand. It's work for heat/cold insulation.
And the third is noise insulation wave polyurethane foam Uxcell brand 80-400 mil 2-10 mm.

Thank you all very much for your attention. Love your Accords.

2023.03.24 08:17 kaneKelvin What Happens When Your Car’s Tank Is Filled With Wrong Type of Fuel – Explained!

In everyday life, mistakes are inevitable. Maintaining and owning a car can involve many mistakes. But every error has repercussions. If a mistake is minor enough, such as choosing the incorrect route to your destination, it may only result in a small increase in fuel consumption. On the other hand, some errors could be more serious, like fuelling your car with the incorrect kind of fuel.
Let’s have a look broadly at wrongly filling up fuel inside a car and what could be the consequence of such a mistake.
Commonly, most vehicles run on only two types of fuel: either petrol or diesel. Therefore, it is possible that anyone can goof up when these types of fuel are available under the same premise.
However, two possibilities might be likely when there is an instance of wrongly filling up a car’s tank.
1. Filling diesel into a petrol car
Though the diesel dispenser usually has a larger nozzle as compared to the petrol dispenser, these large nozzles do not fit into the smaller necked gasoline tanks.
However, it is possible to make a mistake and fill the vehicle with the wrong type of fuel. It happens when someone does not have enough knowledge about filling up fuel.
Under normal circumstances, the diesel nozzle does not insert easily into the narrow neck of a gasoline tank.
What happens when you fill diesel into a petrol car?
Petrol is more of a refined fuel and it requires spark plugs for ignition inside the combustion chamber. Though, filling the diesel in a petrol car does not produce catastrophic damage.
If it is done mistakenly, diesel usually coats the spark plugs and contaminates the entire fuel system. This is visible properly if a car starts to misfire just after filling up the fuel. In most cases, your vehicle might produce excessive smoke.
This is due to the lack of capacity of petrol cars to process diesel. In case, you can not realize the mistake during the filling process, it is possible to run a car over a mixture of diesel and petrol.
But it is necessary that the tank contain less than five percent diesel and the rest be petrol. While diesel can easily get mixed with petrol, cleaning the entire tank and fuel lines is a better alternative if you are more concerned about your vehicle.
What should you do in the case of wrong fuel filling up (diesel in a petrol car)?
Even though this doesn’t sound too bad in comparison to the harm that petrol can do to a diesel engine, the tank will still need to be drained and cleaned right away to avoid clogging the system and its parts.
Amidst such a situation, ask for help with car recovery from Service My Car. There would be no point in running a car on an entirely different fuel, even if it has been running. It would be better to opt for fuel system cleaning by an expert.
2. Filling petrol into a diesel car
Contrary to the diesel dispenser, the petrol dispenser comes with a narrow nozzle and can easily fit into the diesel tanks. Therefore, it has a higher percentage of happening.
As people can make this mistake more easily, the consequences will be more serious. While diesel also works as lubrication along with being a fuel, petrol does not possess such a property. Once there is a mistake of filling petrol in a diesel engine, the engine turns over.
There would be friction inside the engine, which puts a number of things at stake. Usually, the fuel injectors receive the initial damage, and the engine might be at risk of failure too. If this happens, nothing can save a vehicle, not even a car engine repair.
What should you do in case you fill up with the wrong fuel (petrol in a diesel car)?
There are two scenarios to take into consideration.
1. Is the engine turned over? If Not.
In case you are fortunate enough and the petrol has been filled in your diesel car. Do not try to crank the engine. If the fuel stays in the tank and does not reach the engine, there would be no issue at all.
You have to just make a call to a car recovery service like Service My Car. They definitely help you in towing your vehicle to the nearest workshop and flush your car tank as well as fuel lines. Once done, you can fill the tank up again with diesel before starting your vehicle again.
2. Is the engine turned over? If Yes.
Usually, you will know if there was any goof up in filling up the fuel. Your car will produce a loud knocking sound instantly, and there might be an instance of smoke too.
As gasoline has been circulated to each part of the diesel engine, it would definitely wreak havoc inside. If you realize the mistake, do not waste a second in stopping your car’s engine.
In this case, you are supposed to ask for roadside assistance from Service My Car. Just get your car’s tank and fuel lines cleaned properly with the help of a mechanic. However, there might be some sort of damage under the hood. Sometimes, it requires an engine overhaul or a complete replacement.

2023.03.24 08:11 joon_park I just bought a x100v for $1000 on eBay! Is this too good to be true??

I've been looking for x100v's for a while like everyone else. I didn't want to pay the crazy resell price so I've been looking for one that's at the highest around $1.4k...I know impossible...but randomly I just saw one on an eBay listing for $1k! It also comes with accessories like spare batteries, weather protection kit, wide-angle converter, lens hood+cap, and a bag. This seems way too good to be I about to get scammed?

2023.03.24 08:10 Not_3732 Padmé is great!

There's a very annoying trend I am seeing lately where people are calling Padme 'crazy', 'insane' or even 'a freak'....all because she chooses to be with Anakin. I'm sorry, what??? Padme is not crazy, nor is she a 'freak' for falling for him. To claim so is to totally misunderstand Padme's character and her love for Anakin. She is not somehow 'turned on' by his flaws and she doesn't view him as some kind of 'bad boy'. Nor does she just pretend he's not flawed simply because she finds him attractive. She sees his flaws quite clearly...but she ALSO sees his good qualities, and GENUINELY LOVES HIM.
Is someone ‘insane’ or a ‘freak’ for loving a flawed but good-hearted person? Is someone 'crazy' for being compassionate and forgiving towards them? Not only is such a mentality deeply unfair and dismissive, but it also stems from fandom completely misunderstanding Padme’s character, motivations, and the development of her feelings for Anakin in the first place. I get the sense that people want to oversimplify Padme in their minds into some kind of ‘yass queen slay’ girlboss (simply because she’s a fashion icon who cares about democracy), and thus the fact she ‘strays’ even slightly from this imagined ‘girlboss-hood’ can only mean one thing…that she must have totally lost the plot, become unhinged, or gone insane. (Feels so insulting to even type that out, omg.) In reality, Padme is simply a young woman (she is 24 in AotC) who finds herself in a position of great responsibility, and who has been living with the weight of her entire world on her shoulders since she was a CHILD. She had originally planned to retire from public service after her time as queen was over, and only continued to serve in a political capacity because her successor, Queen Jamillia, asked her to. While she certainly cares about the Republic, deep down she wishes she could start a family of her own. All of this is already on her mind before she even reunites with Anakin at the beginning of AotC. Despite the fact that Anakin and Padme come from very different backgrounds, they are both in very similar positions at the beginning of that film. Both have commitments/careers in which they are expected to serve the Republic, and yet both are feeling that something is missing in their lives. Deep down, they are both longing for love and family. And while they care about each other’s respective careers and are supportive of one another, they also wish to be together. And on top of it all, there’s the fact that...Anakin genuinely loves Padme. She senses the depth and sincerity of his feelings, and this is one of the reasons she ultimately decides to be with him. She knows that he truly sees her, and loves her for herself, not just for her position.
If that is seen as ‘unhinged’ on Padme's part, then that is a very depressing indictment of how hypocritical fan attitudes can be. Somehow fandom can understand and accept various other characters in Anakin’s story as being able to love him, but not Padme? It’s also baffling because fictional stories are FULL of examples of compassion towards monsters, villains, and antagonists, and yet somehow Padme loving Anakin (who is neither of these at this stage in the story) is beyond people's comprehension. Anakin Skywalker is a tragic hero. And as such he has both positive qualities, as well as flaws that lead to his downfall. But the point is that he is not without positive qualities. People need to realise that their view of everything that happens in the Prequels-era is coloured by dramatic irony. We, the audience, know what is going to happen. We know that Anakin will become Vader. But the characters don’t know any of this. They are just reacting to their immediate situations, circumstances, and interactions with one another armed only with the knowledge of the present moment. So even Anakin’s flaws and mistakes are not something that overrides the rest of his positive qualities from the perspective of someone like Padme, who genuinely loves—and is loved by—him.

2023.03.24 08:07 Ok-Pen-94 Bilateral Salpingectomy & Pregnancy

How common is it to get pregnant after a bilateral salpingectomy?
I’m 28 years old and had mine done a little over a month ago. I was abstinent for a month after my procedure until I had my next period and just finished my period. My boyfriend wanted to have sex and he ejaculated in me twice. Now all I can think about still is somehow getting pregnant!!
I was on a lot of different forms of hormonal birth control for almost 10 years prior to having this done and I had a ton of issues with birth control. The last form left me with lasting issues so that’s why I pushed for the surgery. I’ve been off birth control for a year now and it was awful with worrying over accidental pregnancy last year, no matter how much protection was used.
However, now I still can’t seem to get myself to relax and stop thinking that I could still somehow end up pregnant. I know it sounds crazy, I’ve researched and saw there’s only a handful of cases of women getting pregnant afterwards but I’ve read you still can if there is a small opening left from the tube or it didn’t heal closed all the way from the procedure. Tell me why I am OBSESSIVELY thinking about that and now I can’t even enjoy the doing deed worry free still because of that!!!
Please someone give me some reassurance or tell me if I am valid in these fears.

2023.03.24 08:04 LagExpress Rant about CAPCOM and regional pricing

On march 9 CAPCOM updated the "Resident Evil 4" price in argentina it went from 4.850 ARS to 12.958 ARS, in my case since I'm from the Salta province i have to pay 77.6% of taxes on puchase i make on steam so the real price i will be paying in the case of the old price 8.613 ARS and with the new price 23.013 ARS

now to put you in context in argentina if you have a credit card that is able to do international transactions steam will charge you in USD and when is time to pay the card you will pay for buying dollars and the corresponding taxes(at the end of the day is a bit more expensive than a debit card because of local currency volatility), if you use a debit card they will charge you the published ammount 12.958 ARS and the bank will automatically calculate the corresponding taxes.
ok, now if i buy the "Resident Evil 4" at the current price steam will get 12.958 ARS or 63.2 USD at the current exchange rate or 61 USD in the worst case so we can say that the game cost 63 USD in argentina and CAPCOM is getting depending on their sales ammount 44, 47.25 or 50.4 usd for each sale in argentina
so, you can compare, a game that update its price recently is Factorio, the game cost 2.500(4.440 after tax) ARS or 12.20 USD

Oter games: ARS (Price with taxes included) / USD (Money that steam will get at the end of the day)
Have a Nice Death = 1.084(1.925) / 5.28
Atelier Ryza 3: Alchemist of the End & the Secret Key = 9.000(15.984) / 43.90
The Last of Us™ Part I = 6.000(10.656) / 29.26
Battlefield™ 2042 = 6.400(11.366) / 31.21
Deep Rock Galactic = 1.135(2.015) / 5.53
ASTRONEER = 2.100(3.730) / 10.24
Rust = 2.440(4.333)/ 11.90

also i want to clarify that I'm well aware that there is people abusing the argentina regional pricing but i don't belive that they are that many and also there is a simple fix, steam already stopped accepting cards that are from digital wallets (MercadoPago, Naranja X, Ualá) the only way to change an account to argentina right now is using a credit/debit card emmited by a proper bank(Banco Macro, Santander, Brubank, Openbank, Patagonia, etc) and to charge your account there is three ways, you can buy a game with your card, you can charge money in your wallet using an steam gift card that is only sold by and no one in argentina has ever seen one... pls valve stop selling gift card codes in ARS, only bots are able to buy them... and by sending items from one account in a different region to your account in argentina with will make charging money a matter of 7 to 15 days and also should be easily trackable by Valve.

Sorry about the rant, i don't like or play Resident Evil games but i just felt like someone had come into my house and punched me in the face. I will also want everyone to consider that the minimum wage here is 90.000 ARS, but the reality is that a big chunk of people earns 60.000 to 80.000 and is forced by their employer to declare that they got 90.000.

2023.03.24 07:52 Significant-Cake2266 First week on brake press(LVD). I come from the world of meat processing. I lost my whole left index finger this October in a freak on a meat tenderizer with no guard. My question - I know how bad it feels to have your finger slowly chewed up, so is working on a brake press worth it? Pros/cons?

Edit - Freak accident*
I’m 25, worked in slaughterhouse and cut/wrap facilities for 5 years. Farm work for 4. I know how to work safe but accidents happen and they fuckin suck. Take it from me - losing my finger was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to go through. Took my man hood away for 5 months. I would love to keep cutting meat but here pay is not what I would have been making before.
I seem to be impressing the shop I’m at now with how I am learning but my heart drops every time I see the press coming down. Especially on complex parts since I am new. Is this a good career path?
If anyone wants to call or text me I would love any and all advice on this - PM me.

2023.03.24 07:50 Other-Borderlands J♣️ : Robin Hood [Capture the flag]

J♣️ : Robin Hood [Capture the flag]
J♣️ : Robin Hood [Capture the flag]
This game is part of a series of games, where I am writing games for all 52 cards for a borderlands in the UK. Each one includes a story of how I imagine the game playing out. You can find all entries here.
Venue: Castle
Player limit: Four
Rules: The castle is split into two sections, The jacks side, and the Player side. The Jack starts with 80% of the gold. Across two hours, players must steal gold from each other’s treasuries. Each team also has a jail, and if a player is caught in the wrong half, they are sent to the jail. If all players are caught, they get one free release. If it happens again it is game over for the team. If a player can get to the jail without being caught they can free one of their team members. Each team also has five keys. Keys can be given one each to each player, in total each team has an A, B, C, D, and M key. These can be used to lock and unlock doors of the same class throughout the castle. M can unlock any door.
While in the treasury players cannot be caught.
The Keys not used are stored in the base and can be stolen by an attacking player, instead of gold. Only two players may be left on defence, one at the prison/safe zone and one at the treasury. Players may only carry one gold item.
Violence is prohibited and punished by a shock from the bracelet.
Sixth Day of Exhibitions

Remaining Games
James sat outside the castle, a bracelet on his wrist, awaiting the opening of the gates. Next to him sat three more bracelets, in front of a sign, reading ‘take one. Four players are needed to begin.’
He sat for a few hours, watching the art of the card hanging from the blimp. The Jack of Clubs. He looked at the castle, it’s architecture, marvelling in a way he had never done before.
He heard someone approaching, and looked down to the familiar form of Ben walking up.
James looked at him, calling out “Looks like you’ve lost your security force!”
Ben walked up to the table, putting on a bracelet.
“I’ve lost a lot since we last met.” He said quietly, and quite uncharacteristically.
“Well there are two more chairs, you can tell me all about it while we wait for the other players.” James said.
Ben recounted his encounter with the Jack of Hearts, and James told Ben about the King of Diamonds.
It was clear Ben had been to a new low after losing the school, and had built his way back to some semblance of his former self’s confidence.
They waited until about three in the afternoon, before three figures approached.
“That’s… not possible…” Ben said.
“What a group of familiar faces!” James said, as they watched Mia, Alex and Ellis approach.
Ellis got there first, nodding to Ben, who nodded back. Mia walked up with Alex, and they explained their ordeal with the King of Spades.
“Well, it looks like we’ve all been through a lot. Maybe we can put the past behind us, and play one more game…” James suggested, holding up his wrist with the bracelet.
“There ain’t no way I’m playing another game after that.” Alex said.
“Well, if you ask me, I’m down for another crack at a face card game.” Ellis said, his familiar smile plastered over his face.
“Well, have fun waiting, cause I’m with Alex. There is no way you’ll catch me playing a game again, especially not with him.” Mia said, pointing at Ben.
“Come on Mia, remember how well we worked together in the nine of spades, and the oh aren’t getting out of here if you don’t beat this guy.” Ben said, pointing up at the picture of the Jack above them.
“Fuck off Ben. I’ve heard about the shit you’ve pulled since I ran off. I’m not joining the game.” Mia said.
“Look, trust me, I’m different now. Reformed if you will. Please, Just this one.” He said, offering her a bracelet.
“Fine. But just know I don’t think of you any higher than previously. I’m just joining to win.” Mia said, clicking the bracelet around her wrist.
The doors began to creak, opening.
They approached, cautiously, watching the sunlight streaming out from it.
Four figures approached, James estimated they weren’t much older than them.
“Look who’s come out to play….” The Leading one said.
“Jack!?” Mia said, in disbelief. “That’s not possible… You’re in hospital… The Crash…”
“Looks like Jack’s the Jack. And also here and recovered from his coma.” James noted, looking at Jack.
“Well, looks like I missed something.” The Jack said, before beconing them in.
“Ben, I’ve been watching your group intently for a while now, and seeing how you led. See, you and I took a different approach. While you chose to lead by force, I chose to lead with equality. Your approach ultimately failed, and you have only managed to gather a group to try and defeat me by humbling yourself. However, your efforts will likely be in vain. As you have learned, and we learned a few years ago, its kill or be killed. One of either groups lives must be sacrificed to continue the lives of the others. We thank you for the sacrifice you will likely make today. It’s nothing personal, don’t worry.” He said, walking in front, towards the centre of the courtyard.
Mia turned and looked at Alex, as the gates shut, obscuring her. It could likely be the last time either of them saw each other.
The Jack began to explain the rules as James surveyed the area, seeing a large screen with ‘player’ and ‘citizen’ written on it, with a large dividing line running down the centre, as well as through the castle.
The layout of the game showed the castle split into two halves, and He knew he was on the player side. He looked at his bracelet, flashing up five images of Keys, one labeled A, B, C, D and M.
When the Jack finished the rules they were told they would have five minutes to plan before the game began.
“So, the way the game starts, it’s impossible to win for us by playing defensive. We are forced to play offensive, but the Jack can only have two full defenders, slightly levelling the playing field. However, this means that the Jack, until we have around equal values of gold in our treasury, can just keep his team on their side as defence.” James said, drawing out a little diagram in the courtyard floor. “We are forced into playing offensive at this point, so that means we have to figure a way around the defence. Because defenders need to escort the people they catch to the prison, we could all run at once and make it past the first defenders here.” He pointed. “Then we arrive at the limited section of defence, where one player needs to run from where the prison is, as that will not yet be guarded. Because someone is running that way, those who are caught should try and stall for time. Then, one person should be able to make it into the treasury, and they simply need to sprint back to get us some gold. Then they can be caught, releasing everyone wit the free release. We can then think more carefully then with a levelled playing field.”
“But what about Keys?” Ben countered.
“Well, for us to need keys there must be locked zones. So, if we assign someone the M Key, and give the other person no Key, they can block a capture from the other team by stepping in front. SO If we give either Mia or Ellis the M key, I’ll take no key and go with them, leaving the other two with designated keys and two keys left at our base.” James suggested.
“Seems like a decent plan.” Ellis said, and they assigned keys, lining up at the centre line, watching the other two walk along it. He recognised them from his school. Ben wondered how they had gotten from the crash to here, they had been in critical condition when he went o the theatre, and now they were claiming to have been here for years… Perhaps it was aliens.
“The Game Has Begun.” The Voice droned, and They enacted their plan.
Ellis and James ran over, and one of the defenders tried to tag him. James jumped in front, getting sent to the prison. Ellis raced towards the door at the end of the courtyard, and he ran into the inside of the castle. He looked around, running through various passageways, before seeing a guard, and he quickly turned tail and ran. He watched Mia run in from the other side, into the room he was guarding, and pick up something large and golden. He kept racing, catching sight of her outside the window.
Ellis quickly jumped through the window to his right, landing with a shoulder roll, and sprinted towards Mia. He watched another defender running for her, and he pushed him out of the way. He was led to prison, and Mia cleared the line.
The gold total on the screen now changed, showing the player team now had 378 gold in their treasury, the citizen team having 622.
Mia took a deep breath, seeing that that incident had taken one sixth of the time, now having fifty minutes left. She was also the only uncultured member of her team. Getting caught would use up their only jailbreak, so it may be worth trying to free them.
Also, Mia knew that she could get to the prison with the Key she had, but wether they had changed the keys they had locked the doors with was unknown.
She walked up to the line, looking at the two defenders who were in the courtyard with her. She made a run for it, note vent making it to the courtyard wall before she felt a hand on her back. Her bracelet indicated she had been captured, and the screen announced that their whole team had been captured and that they have used up their one Jailbreak. All of their team were returned to their half.
“We can’t afford to do that again.” James said. “Because even if we manage to get an item of the same value to put us in the lead, we would only have one defender. No, we need to think of a stealthier strategy.”
“Well, the castle windows are quite close together. Someone with good arm strength, say Ellis, could climb around the outside, and into the treasure room. Then they could climb back with an item without the team realising.” Ben suggested.
“I recon I could do it…” Ellis said, walking over to look out the window.
“Well, good luck then.” James said.
Ellis climbed out the window, putting his feet on a lower ledge, keeping his hands on the ledge. He scaled his way around the outside, carefully moving one point of contact after the other, first his foot, then his hand, repeat. As he got further and further around the castle, the higher the gap between him and the ground became. He arrived at what he thought was the treasury, and pulled himself up, climbing in, and grabbing an easily carrialble item that seemed to be valuable.
He dropped back out of the window, alone of the defenders opened the door, and he began to climb around the outside. He heard someone running, and continued around the outside.
He stopped, feeling a pain on his hand.
“Hello Ellis. I’ve always wanted to do this.” The defender said, bringing his foot into Ellis’ face. He repeatedly did so, until ellis let go of the ledge.
Ellis fell, and the defender shot backwards, electricity coursing through his body. He lay there, and coughed a little, before getting up.. He hated Ellis. He had bullied him for years. Good riddance, he thought.
Ellis crashed down into the floor, has bones cracking, before the laser put him out of his misery.
James and the others watched as the screen showed the words ‘Elimination’.
“A player has been eliminated for leaving the game area.” The Voice announced.
James looked at the screen, showing their score hadn’t changed. 378 - 520.
This meant that Ellis must have been the one eliminated. James hung his head a moment.
He walked up to Mia and Ben, who were defending the base, informing them of the discovery.
They were sad, and they knew that they were now at a severe disadvantage. One player down, and in second place in scores.
James discussed a third plan with them.
“Well, we are at a serious disadvantage. We are one player down, and they can afford to play full defence. We have very few options.” James said, “I think we can try to use Mia to try and draw out the defenders, and then Ben can run in and grab the flag. It is risky, as it is four on one or two, but it seems like the only option.”
“Well, we don’t have many other options.” Ben said, looking at the timer on the screen, 20 minutes left.
Mia walked up to the line alone, as James and Ben walked their way through the castle, using their A and D keys to try and get through the castle. They arrived at a locked door, locked with a B key.
“Damn!” Ben said. They had to find another way around, and turned and walked up a flight of stairs.
Mia was on the line, talking to one of the defenders, asking for Jack.
Jack walked out, and one of the others walked back, taking his place.
“Well Mia. How nice to see you. We’ve not had a proper chance to talk yet, have we?” Jack said, and Mia looked at him.
“I wish I could say it was nice to see you, but the circumstances don’t allow for it.” Mia said. “So, why are you here?”
“Well, I am here because I am the Jack of Clubs, but that doesn’t sound like what you meant. In truth, I’m only here because I don’t want to die. Sounds a bit ironic, but in this world, we know life isn’t worth much. That means there is no god, no afterlife. Nothing. I can’t afford to go yet. I still have so much more to do with my life. I’m sorry we will have to sacrifice your life for ours.” The Jack said.
“I’m very sorry that I’ll have to politely decline.” Mia said, racing across the line.
Jack ran after her, followed by the other defender. She looped around, doing out of the way of his swipes, and rolled past him.
While this was happening, James and Ben had gone up a few floors, and worked through various locked doors. They arrived at the top of a staircase, guarded by another of the Jack’s guards. He didn’t seem to notice them.
Ben stepped out, shouting to him, “Catch me if you can Dustin!” Before bolting down the corridor, as James hid behind the door.
As they ran past, James ran through the door, locking it behind him. He continued down the corridor, towards the treasury of the Jack’s team.
He slowly descended the stairs, seeing a guard stood in front of the door. James knew it was a risk, but he climbed over to the window, and crawled into the treasury.
He grabbed a bag of small jewels, and climbed back up again, quietly. His arms hurt from pulling himself up, but he continued out towards the windows to the courtyard.
He spotted Mia still dodging attempts to catch her, and she caught his eye. She lead them as far away from the window as she could, before James jumped out, wincing as he landed badly. He got up, and was running.
He saw himself getting closer and closer to the line, and he jumped across it, before sprinting back to their treasury, gasping for breath, bent over, hands on his legs.
Mia came in later, informing him he had tipped the balance in their favour. Now all they needed to do was wait for the attack from the Jack’s team.
Mia was left guarding the treasury, while James went to guard the prison. There were five minutes left, when the Jacks team made a last ditch effort for the lead.
They ran all at once, trying to make it to the treasury. James and Mia managed to catch them all, and they sat together in the prison of the player team, as the last few minutes ticked down.
The Jack had turned to the wall, and was crying into his arms.
“I can’t die…” He said, tears streaming from his eyes. “Please, let us live. Please-“
His team mates tried to comfort him, but this was a difficult task in the face of death.
James spoke to their three captives as the time ticked down, James told him as well what he meant about the crash. "20 dead. 19 left in critical condition. Was on the radio as I left for school. We tried not to think about it, but..." He trailed off.
Jack changed the subject, ad they continued to talk, and James even managed to make Jack and the other laugh. It was as it was before. Before the crash, before they arrived here. But the laughter was hollow. The people who he were talking to were as good as dead.
“Well, I hope you use your well earned life w-w-isely.” The Jack stuttered.
James looked at him sadly.
The Laser ended the game, as the voice announced the game had been cleared by the players.
Ben, Mia and James walked out of the castle, as the blimp exploded behind them. The face burning and peeling, and they looked at the remaining games.
The King of hearts.
Ben told them he would go out and try to clear it, and James and Mia agreed to help him.
As they walked towards the Church above which the King of hearts blimp hung, an announcement rang out over the city.
“There is only one game remaining. The Game is the King of Hearts. To join, please make your way to the venue.”
James looked back one final time, seeing the crushed body of Ellis lying at the base of the castle.
He turned, watching the King of Hearts blimp in the distance.
The deck was almost complete.

I've been participating in this sub for awhile. I offer some opinions that rub people's amygdala the right way, some that rub it the wrong way, and it's usually pretty easy for me to predict on that basis which will result in a return of upvotes or downvotes (getting the ol' frontal cortex to intervene beforehand is another story, of course). I don't really care about my internet points, so I'm fine in either case. Go ahead, hit that downvote button - I don't care!
What I'm beginning to care a bit more about is: overtly ad baculum arguments put forth with the intent (or simply, the probable effect) of limiting the necessary scope of this discussion. Now, I do know better than to accuse anyone of having nefarious intent, with 100% confidence. Regardless of whether that intent is ultimately present, however, putting forth this kind of fallacy (and having it be popularly accepted) will have a chilling/censorious effect, and it is consequently highly problematic.
Yes, my contention is that being allowed to consider the morality/legality of filicide/infanticide is within the necessary scope of any good-faith discussion about abortion. Why?
To convincingly answer this question, let's answer another:

Why is abortion being debated in the first place?

Abortion is quite the hot-button issue, and some of us certainly don't see why it should be. Shouldn't it be self-evident that our own preexisting beliefs are all that should really matter? There shouldn't even need to be a debate!
Regardless, the debate persists. It persists because of all the differing presuppositions and motivations brought into it by those that stand to be affected by any given conclusion on the matter (which is, broadly speaking, all of society).
Some of us have the very reasonable motivation of not wanting to be forced, by law, into remaining pregnant for no good/sufficient reason, on the presupposition(s) that:
Others of us have the very reasonable motivation of not wanting it to be legal to kill certain classes/categories of people, on the presupposition that ZEFs do, in fact, exist in the same general moral category as newborn babies and/or young children, and shouldn't be killed for the same reasons (shared humanity, future like ours, etc).
Ok, those are understandable motivations. But notice that there were actually two entirely distinct presuppositions (or, justifications) that might be accounting for why someone might decide to label themselves "pro-choice", and sincerely support/defend the right to abort.
Clearly, it is unambiguously not outside of the scope of this topic to independently consider the qualia of the conceptus, and then appeal to some measurably absent characteristic that would, in one's opinion, be a strict prerequisite for the granting of the legal protection known as "right-to-life", as a valid method of argument for the resulting permissibility of abortion. That is to say, it is not impossible that someone's decision to support abortion's morality and/or its legality is ultimately derived (perhaps, exclusively derived) from this form of independent consideration.
Just as "viability" (theoretical ability of a conceptus to survive separated from its parent/host) and "sentience" (capacity to experience physical pain) are fetal capacities bound to be of some legitimate interest in the course of debating the morality of abortion, "self-awareness" is as well. When and to what extent do fetuses become self-aware?
Enter philosopher Peter Singer, who argues explicitly for the permissibility/legality of infanticide (up to 28 days after birth) on this very basis:
From "Practical Ethics": "Human babies are not born self-aware, or capable of grasping that they exist over time. They are not persons." But animals are self-aware, and therefore, "the life of a newborn is of less value than the life of a pig, a dog, or a chimpanzee."
He isn't alone in making this argument. Mary Anne Warren (late writer and philosophy professor) makes a similar argument in her paper 'On the Moral and Legal Status of Abortion', and arrives at a similar conclusion: that the very same observations about the (entirely or partially absent) qualia of the conceptus in its state prior to birth would reasonably motivate us to acknowledge that being born, by itself, doesn't really change all that much. She writes:
One of the most troubling objections to the argument presented in this article is that it may appear to justify not only abortion but infanticide as well. A newborn infant is not a great deal more personlike than a ninemonth fetus, and thus it might seem that if late-term abortion is sometimes justified, then infanticide must also be sometimes justified. Yet most people consider that infanticide is a form of murder, and thus never justified.
While it is important to appreciate the emotional force of this objection, its logical force is far less than it may seem at first glance. There are many reasons why infanticide is much more difficult to justify than abortion, even though if my argument is correct neither constitutes the killing of a person.
Alberto Giubilini and Francesca Minerva together make the case that "the newborn and the fetus are morally equivalent" in their article, After-birth abortion: why should the baby live?.
Inevitably, when I (or any of these other esteemed gentlemen-and-women) are asked to justify our support for abortion, our reasoning/argument will be general enough to be interpreted as support for filicide/infanticide, up to a certain point. This is unavoidable (and true!), given our sincerely-held beliefs on the subject.
This brings us to the crux of the issue:

What is being "aborted", exactly, when we're "debating abortion"?

Some of the participants on this forum (who I will not name) seem to be interested in policing the way this question can be justifiably answered. There are (grammatically speaking) two perfectly-valid grammatical objects one might have in mind, when one is trying to discuss what is, in one's view, the object of central importance to the abortion debate.
  1. The ongoing life of the conceptus/child
  2. The pregnancy that life directly inflicts
To "abort" is a verb, which simply means "to bring to a premature end".
For debate participants primarily motivated by not remaining pregnant against their will, it is very understandable that, from their point of view, abortion would naturally refer to aborting pregnancies.
For debate participants primarily motivated by protecting the right-to-life of unborn people, it is equally understandable that abortion would naturally refer to aborting the life of the unborn child.
In practical terms, there is no difference. A pregnancy ends prematurely when (and only when) the life of the conceptus does, and it is subsequently flushed/extracted from the body. But in philosophical terms, there is a world of difference.
From our analysis above, of what motivates this debate to occur in the first place, we can realize the following:
If it were hypothetically possible to abort the pregnancy prematurely, without ending the life of the child causing it, it's very likely that some respectable number of pregnant people would be doing just that. And to that extent, the impetus for having the debate would be lessened, directly. The pro-life side would be satisfied, to the extent unborn babies are no longer being killed, and the pro-choice side would be satisfied, to the extent that pregnancies are no longer being compelled by force of law.
Conversely, we may consider the possibility of ending the life of the child, but without necessarily ending pregnancy (leaving open the option of maintaining the pregnancy for the full nine months, as though the child were still alive). Obviously, this would be a much less chosen option. But the more important thing to realize is: here, the impetus for having the debate has not been lessened in the slightest. The pro-life side would still object to the killing of the entity with contested moral value, with or without the continuation of any associated pregnancy.
Therefore, object of central importance to the abortion debate - the thing that ultimately causes the debate - is not the subjective experience of pregnancy (as arduous as that experience may be). It is the contested personhood and right-to-life of the life of the child being aborted/killed, at varying points in time.
So, if we are going to be in the business of policing what can be "properly" or "rightly" considered as the "true" or "best" object of consideration here, that policing would logically run in one direction as opposed to the other. Fortunately, there is usually no pressing need to do any policing - only to make a good-faith effort to listen and respond to what is actually being said to you.

Putting it all together

Now, we have established two facts:
  1. That the principal object of consideration (if there is to be one) in the context of the "abortion debate" is the ongoing life and disputed personhood/right-to-life of the conceptus/child at different points in time.
  2. A certain fraction of the people who sincerely consider the personhood/right-to-life of the conceptus come to the conclusion that concepti should not, in fact, be regarded as persons (or as possessing a right-to-life) until some point in time well after birth (ie, a certain point in time).
From these two facts we may directly infer the necessity and relevance of considering (proposing, debating, refuting, etc) the personhood/right-to-life of the object ultimately motivating the continued existence of this debate, before or after birth.

Final considerations

I have heard tell that there have been conversations among the mods here as to whether my progressive stance on this issue is perhaps too progressive. I have not been privy to these conversations, but I would like to offer this post as my general argument in favor of both being allowed to remain here, and being allowed to argue my point of view in good faith, without it being subject to removal by virtue of being "off-topic" to the debate.
I was once informed that my kind of pro-choice advocacy might "get us in trouble with the admins". Neither myself (nor any of the good company I'm in, by virtue of advocating for the legality of post-birth abortion) are promoting hate against any marginalized group, advocating illegal/extralegal activity, or any engaging in any other claimed violation of Reddit site-wide policies. Any claims to the contrary are a bad-faith attempt at silencing and dismissing the argument I am making, and should themselves be subject to removal under rule one.
Hopefully, this clarifies at least some of my position, as well as at least some of what it means to engage in good faith with opinions you do not presently hold. Thank you for reading.

2023.03.24 07:48 EvitoQQ Retro Joshi #435: JWP December 23, 1999, GAEA December 27, 1999 & Jd’ December 28, 1999 - Azumi Hyuga vs. Ran YuYu, Chigusa Nagayo & Meiko Satomura vs. Lioness Asuka & Sonoko Kato, Lioness Asuka vs. Cooga

Retro Joshi #435: JWP December 23, 1999, GAEA December 27, 1999 & Jd’ December 28, 1999 - Azumi Hyuga vs. Ran YuYu, Chigusa Nagayo & Meiko Satomura vs. Lioness Asuka & Sonoko Kato, Lioness Asuka vs. Cooga
JWP Solid Slider 12/23/1999 Korakuen Hall, Tokyo
4-5 minute were shown of each of the undercard matches. We had Acute Sae vs. Chihiro Nakano, Yuki Miyazaki vs. Tsubasa Kuragaki and Devil Masami vs. Kyoko Ichiki. None of these looked like particularly good matches, but it’s nice to see some faces we don’t often see like Miyazaki and Ichiki who are pretty good, even Chihiro has improved since leaving GAEA. Their opposition was pretty bad though. They showed 9:49 / 15:53 of Command Bolshoi & Carlos Amano vs. Dynamite Kansai & Kayoko Haruyama. Bolshoi submitted Haruyama. It was just your typical ** JWP match, you could guess what to expect - Kansai dominated, Haruyama wasn’t too good, Bolshoi and Amano were fine but it was pretty much just spots. Next came Azumi Hyuga vs. Ran YuYu, which we’ll come back to, and the show ended with the JWP ’99 PURE HEART SPECIAL PARTY which featured the ’99 awards where Kana Mizaki was named MVP. That’s such a weird decision because they never pushed her in any meaningful way and the other three of the fab four were pushed way ahead of her. Mizaki is actually the best wrestler in the group though, her three peers are basically focused on spots and bring little else to the table. As pure workers they are all stronger than Mizaki, but Mizaki is the one who has more a grasp on how a pro-wrestling match works at this point and she is far superior with psychology and selling.
JWP Openweight Title Match: Azumi Hyuga vs. Ran YuYu (24:22)
Hyuga jobbing to Bolshoi recently was a pretty good hint that we were likely to see a new champion here. They started out hot and for pure work, these really are the best two on the entire scene, everything they do looks great, they’re crisp and they work well together. They still don’t have the brain to work these long matches though and you end up with a lot of wasted time and stuff that just doesn’t go anywhere. The first half of the match was a lot of holds, they were all done well, Ran was really cranking up on a sleeper at one point but it came across as little more than time killing. They had a slapping fight at about the 12 minute mark and from there, the shit was on. They picked things up and it turned into high quality back and forth match with great execution, neat counters, big moves and good near falls. Both hit their finishers at the end but it wasn’t enough to get the win on this day, they both booted each other in the face for a double down and it was anyones match. After an exchange of German Suplexes, Hyuga went for a Destiny Hammer but Ran avoided it. Hyuga came back immediately with a boot and looked to finish but Ran caught her with a rana to win the title. The frustrating thing with these two is that they should be putting on excellent matches all the time but their mental blocks mean that they’ve been outdone throughout the year by the Jd’ kids, who might not be as talented but actually have the ability to work smarter matches. ***1/2
GAEA G-PANIC #29 Prophecy Hitting (12/27/1999 Korakuen Hall)
Gala night footage from 12/19, that was pretty damn funny. Then they showed highlights of the year.
Sakura Hirota & Toshie Uematsu vs. Chikayo Nagashima & Kaori Nakayama
They only showed the finish which saw Hirota roll up Nakayama to get the win.
Sakura Hirota & Toshie Uematsu vs. Mayumi Ozaki & Akira Hokuto (5:02 / 8:41)
All spots and brawling. Hirota and Uetamsu were getting thrashed but interference from KAORU using barbed wire prevented Ozaki from getting back to the ring so Hirota got a count out win. *1/2
KAORU, Toshiyo Yamada & Saika Takeuchi vs. Aja Kong, RIE & Sugar Sato (11:34 / 14:05)
Takeuchi showed some spirit, but she had no chance. I like her, she just throws everything she has at her opponents even if there’s nothing she can do to them. RIE used the barbed wire and busted her open. Action was good throughout and it had some structure. Everyone did their job well enough, except RIE who still can’t swing a weapon. Aja was the best as usual. The finish saw everyone getting taken out, leaving RIE alone. Yamada did her Reverse Gory Special, and then Rocket Launchered the bloody and battered Takeuchi onto RIE to give her the big pinfall, which was pretty cool. ***1/4
Chigusa Nagayo & Meiko Satomura vs. Lioness Asuka & Sonoko Kato (7:40)
This was a really big match on paper with the tension between Satomura and Kato and the Crush Gals on opposite sides, but it was 8 minutes and only existed for the purposes of a big angle. The best exchanges in the match were between Lioness and Satomura, and obviously Kato and Satomura work well together. The match was going along okay, Ozaki, Hokuto and the rest of the group ran in and beat the shit out of everyone in the match, so it was thrown out. Chigusa and Lioness fought back and did their old signature chop spot and a double team suplex, which was awesome and blew the roof off Korakuen Hall. Aja wasn’t too happy with Ozaki and Hokuto, and they seemed to set up Ozaki & Hokuto vs. Lioness & Aja. Match was nothing, but the post match angle was great. *1/2
Jd' Get Miracle Burning Hot 1999 12/28/1999 Korakuen Hall
They showed most of the undercard in digest form. Sachie Abe & Obatchi Iizuka vs. Hiroyo Muto & Ranmaru, Saya Endo vs. KAZUKI and Crusher Maedomari & Morimatsu vs. The Bloody & Fang Suzuki. Nothing of value was lost there, but Obatchi did a Sky Twister Press, or tried to.
Megumi Yabushita vs. Yuko Kosugi (9:26)
This was fun and the action was fine, but it was pretty short and not really the same level we’re used to seeing from them. Yabushita won this one with a Tiger Suplex Hold. The highlight was her doing a swan dive tope con giro. Kosugi gave her typically solid performance, not sure if Yabushita got hurt at some point, but she was looking quite sluggish with her suplexes later in the match, particularly with her bridges. **1/2
Sumie Sakai vs. Nanae Takahashi (9:33 / 13:33)
Sakai was nothing short of excellent in this match. Her work was so smooth and fast, and she was on point with everything. The problem was Nanae dragged the match way down with her clumsiness. Nanae just can’t do anything, she sits around in holds and when she tries to work fast it’s a recipe for disaster. Here, she managed to screw up Sakai’s top rope rana by slipping off, which made for a nasty landing where Sakai almost landed on her head. She didn’t even execute her Nanarocker properly, which she got the win with. **1/2
TWF Title Match: Lioness Asuka vs. Cooga (18:31)
The final match of 1999, and the final match of Cooga’s career. Lioness was great here and did the best job of carrying Cooga of anyone not named Jaguar Yokota. The thing with Cooga is she’d have been a perfectly fine mid-level worker if she had the fire she did during her run as Miori Kamiya, she understands psychology a bit and has some nice offense, but it always looks so pathetic because there’s no impact at all behind it. This was the typical Lioness formula match, plenty of action, Lioness dominates, she uses her tables, but she gave Cooga enough and sold, so Cooga was a credible threat to her. Cooga looked better than she normally does thanks to Lioness but the usual issues around her offense remained. Cooga did score a pretty nice kick and a Destiny Hammer to get her biggest near fall of the match. Lioness busted out the moonsault, which is a rarity, and later she powerbombed Cooga from the apron through a table, then did a diving footstomp out in the bleachers. Cooga kicked out of a couple of Liger Bombs in the ring and she even kicked out of the Tower Hacker Bomb, so she had to bust out the Lioness Surprise Drop, which is basically a Fisherman’s Buster turned into a Falcon Arrow to get the win. Cooga unmasked after the match and retired. ***1/2
