Arguably the best French fighter of the World War 2, similar in many aspects to the earlier Messerschmitt Bf109, with a better autonomy, maneuverability and ease of maintenance but failing to attain anywhere near its production run before the fall of France.
After an intensely taxing exam at the Francis Fong Academy I’ve earned my Brown Sash in Wing Chun. Siu Nim Tao, Chum Kiu, and all eight dummy sets. After that I had to do a gates round defending straight punches and hooks and returning Wing Chun punches 250 within 3 minutes. Followed by a full TBA Muay Thai round of 60 kicks and 40 knees with a TBA Instructor. Then last but not least escaping side-control, mount, and back control against a Pedro Sauer brown belt in BJJ. Worked hard and earned it. Next year I test for Red.
My first thought was “Fly would work” but it’s not a reaction. She can cast Featherfall while Falling, she couldn’t cast Fly. Percy is brill (and so are you)
Even better: there is a Ring of Feather Falling already in the 5e DMG, and it automatically kicks in whenever the wearer falls - it doesn’t even take a reaction, making it even better since Vex is often knocked unconscious when things smack her out of the air!
“When you fall while wearing this ring, you descend 60 feet per round and take no damage from falling.”

I braved Costco today with the kids just to get toilet paper (but also ended up with bean dip and chicken tenders). Oh why not. I went 3 days before Christmas just for paper towels, because I’m adventuresome like that. Oh well, it was an outing and they got a pizza. Everybody happy.
The number of 60-tiny-stitch rounds I’ve had to pick out of this colorwork sock I’m working on today. Actually 2.5 rounds. Joy.
The number of hours today that Wolf spent meticulously vacuuming out his trailer because he went to pick up a load of sugar and they told him there was glass among the floorboards of the trailer he had.
Today was his birthday but he ended up stuck in Grand Fork, ND. He may not have enough hours to get back, unless after tomorrow he gets some Recap hours. The soonest we’ll see his face is probably Monday. Sigh.
At the rate I’m going, I’ll reach my weight goal by June. I’ve been reading some very discouraging stuff about how it’s worse on your body and organs to lose and gain and lose than to just be heavy. And that in 5-year follow ups, no study has ever found anyone who has lost a significant amount of weight who has kept it off. That being said, I’m resigned to probably having to stick to my calorie/carb limit and ratio for the rest of my life, especially considering that the less one weighs, the fewer calories/carbs one needs to maintain the new weight instead of the original one. Doing the burlesque routine, I was able to make the movements just fine, but I looked like a walrus. June seems like such a long way away.
okay so pj has 215 videos on kickthepj and they’re, on average about 5 minutes long (i know some are 2 minutes, some 10. shh). now its time for a math lesson: 215 times 5 equals 1,075 divided by 60 is 17.9166667, rounding up imma just go with 18. it would take about 18 hours to watch every video and i have 18 hours lets do this.
Spent two days down south in Helmand Province visiting the special forces team we have down there and the Afghan Special Forces battalion they advise.
We flew on UH-60 Blackhawks for a 60 minute round trip from the airstrip. We traveled over expansive desert, sighting numerous kochi’s and kochi tents, as well as shepherds and their herds. We’d come across strips of farmland, always along a manmade canal. The pilots would try to avoid flying over the farms when possible. It’s interesting to see the Afghan people stop and stare up into the sky, I imagine the sensation for them is like somewhat taking a glance centuries into the future. Nomads meet technology.
We visited with the Afghan SF battalion commander, talked about their logistical issues, and toured their compound. We got to see their supply depot, motor pool, and maintenance shop. Their commander asked us to stay for lunch and we got stuck into eating there. I won’t go in to lots of detail about how filthy everything was, in order to escape thoughts of puking, but I’ll just say this…apparently Afghans prepare bread with their feet………
The trip was decent. We boarded the Dash-8 200 in a balmy 60 degrees and flew the hour and forty minutes back into the mountains, stopping shortly in Kabul, then back up to BAF, stepping off into snow and 30 degree temps. Since I’ve returned, it has been snowing non-stop. I awoke this morning to 5 inches on the ground, and more coming down. For operations, the Army categorizes the weather in one of two ways: favorable or unfavorable. Let’s just say I’ve heard ‘unfavorable’ getting briefed most days.
USA. Ohio. Kent. May 4, 1970. Mary Ann Vecchio, a 14 year-old student, kneels beside Jeffrey Milley who’d been shot by the National Guard. Though the photo that first circulated turned out to be manipulated, this is the original, un-doctored version. This picture won the Pulitzer Prize.
The Kent State shootings occurred at Kent State University and involved the shooting of college students by the Ohio National Guard on May 4, 1970.
National Guardsmen fired into a group of unarmed students, killing four and wounded another nine—some marching against the Vietnam War and American invasion of Cambodia, some walking by or observing the protest from a distance.
Guardsmen had on the previous day used tear gas to disperse protesters and, by May 4th, rallies were banned and classes resumed. But 2,000 people gathered in what quickly turned into confrontation. Tear gas and bayonets were met with rocks and verbal taunts, which were met with more than 60 rounds of gunfire. In 1974, all charges were dropped against eight of the Guardsmen involved.
There were 28 guards who admitted to firing on top of the hill, 25 of these guards fired 55 rounds into the air and into the ground, 2 of the guards fired .45cal pistol shots, 2 into the crowd, and 3 into the air, one guard fired birdshot into the air. The guardsmen fired 61 rounds over a period of 13 seconds, killing four students and wounding nine others, one of whom suffered permanent paralysis.
There was a significant national response to the shootings: hundreds of universities, colleges, and high schools closed throughout the United States due to a student strike of four million students, and the event further affected public opinion—at an already socially contentious time—over the role of the United States in the Vietnam War.

I’m very new to this community, but already I feel quite at home.Which is in itself a very strange and new sensation for me. I was wondering if you don’t mind, could you send some good vibes, thoughts, prayers my way. I am trying to find a better job, like so many other people right now. I have sent out dozens of applications and resumes. Really I’m just trying to find a job closer than the one I’m at now. (I drive 60 miles a day round trip, and I’m very worried about how long my car will last.) I left my dream job due to it being an incredibly toxic environment but I had a no compete clause so for the next year I am unable to work in my desired and trained field. It’s a big mess. Any way enough of my crap. Thank you.
Okay so today I’m ridiculously lucky. I decided to play some scratch offs with $40. First round I won my money back to $40. Then next round that $40 turned into $60. Then next round that $60 turned into $75. Next round my $75 turned into $565!!!!!!!! But wait there is more. I just decided to play with $110. That $110 turned into $250. Then I took $60 of that and turned it into $150. All together I turned $40 into $815!!!!!!! 3rd luckiest I’ve ever been with scratch offs
