How do I get medals?
Medals are the "premium" currency of Metal Slug Attack. Like many freemium games, you'll get a large amount of them for "free" when you start playing... but that supply will dwindle as your account levels up. Eventually the only "fast" method will be to spend real cash: freemium games are for those with either patience or money.
In the long run, your main supply will come from gathering points during events. Marathon events, which usually occur near the start of a month, are the most "generous" in terms of "time for medals" (and MSP). That doesn't mean they're the only events worth participating in, though - the units they unlock tend to be weaker than those from other event types.
kyr_chang has a write up on the medal counts from all event types here.
How should I spend medals?
On the step or box cranks, generally - there's very seldom a reason to spend them anywhere else these days. On average, it costs ~12.5k medals to unlock a step unit, or ~18k medals to unlock a box unit. Luck's involved, so you could spend a lot less or more than that (a 50% deviation isn't uncommon, for better or worse). You won't unlock all crank units without forking out real money for more medals, so it pays to build up a reserve for those ones you really want!
Do not spend medals in the "shops". This goes double if you're thinking about buying equippable items for your units! As your account levels up, you'll get tons more items for free - but your medal supply will dry up, and medals are the only way you can spin the step / box cranks.
Occasionally you'll get free "crank keys" that let you spin the regular "medal crank" without spending actual medals. Try Line, United Front, and Recapture events make up to ten of these available at a time - if you save up that many, then you can use them all at once to get better prizes. The keys expire if you don't use them before an event ends, but the game'll use them for you if you miss the cut-off dates.
How do I get MSP?
Putting aside the obvious (such as completing your daily quests), really early on, the way to go is through the Rebel Gigant stage that appears after completing Attack map stages every now and then. It generally shows up once every eight hours, and is pretty much sure to appear the first time you clear an Attack stage each day, so the idea is to finish off all your other Daily Quests and redeem them before triggering it so's you can dump in as many sorties as possible. The more times you can beat it within an hour, the more MSP it pays out.
Once you join a guild, you can also ask for help in the chat. Depending on how well off the other members are, their contributions through Good Jobs could add up to hundreds of thousands a day (perhaps even over a million if the guild's really active and very generous).
Later on, your best bet is playing events. The different types give different amounts, with Marathons providing the most for the least effort. Once you get to the point where you can farm Hell maps, you won't have any trouble gathering tons of MSP.
How should I spend MSP?
Through the "Customise Bases" screen first. In particular, it's imperative that you upgrade everything relating to AP production. Consider that your main priority.
Outside of that, just dump it in to the units you're currently using. There's no benefit to upgrading units that aren't in your decks.
Once you level up enough you'll have MSP coming out of your ears, so don't worry too much about "wasting" it.
What units should I use?
Generally, you'll want to use whatever the other players are using to kick you around in Online mode - so if in doubt, go play there. Constantly losing really quickly? You need more low-AP units which can block attackers. Constantly losing after a prolonged battle? You need more high-AP units which can dish out damage. Experiment to find the balance that works for you.
Don't have the units you see online? A lot of decent units are only available for a limited time during certain events, and aren't made available again for a long time afterwards. But Metal Slug Attack is a collection-based game, which means that new units are constantly being introduced to outpower the old ones: if you do miss something decent, odds are you'll soon get something better from a later event anyway. There's not much point in worrying about which units you have prior to reaching player level 50, which is the maximum level your units may ever be raised to.
The best "free" opener units tend to come from Try Line and Rare Boss events. The better "boss" type units are to be had from Try Line, Task Force, or Recapture events.
The ''strongest'' units tend to come from the Step and Box cranks, but a well-made deck will incorporate both premium crank units as well as free event units.

2020.07.24 21:45 k2900 An unsent letter

I just need a place to write.
I felt relatively ok a couple of days this week. I've been busy. But here I am on a Friday evening feeling lost and alone. I miss you.
I often said and felt like a relationship is always worth it in the end because the good times. They can never be taken away. And yet they mean nothing, now, in the present. Because all the good times together have culminated in this feeling of loss and worry about the future.
I chatted to some people on these online dating apps. It feels so impossible to connect with anyone. You were one of a kind. You are one of a kind. Or maybe you were just the kind that works for me.
You were non-judgemental and open-minded. That worked for me. The overly religious types or militant atheists don't work for me.
Although we had some hard times, we communicated. You talked. I remember the time you drove all the way to my place at night just to make sure we could talk something out. I remember getting upset with you because you weren't problem solving and finding solutions. And that brings me to the next point.
You took things to heart. You improved yourself and how you approach things. That works for me. It amazed me that you would write out your goals list, or read a book to try to solve the problem. The way you tried so hard towards the end was inspiring. Because I saw a part of me in that. That undying will to keep going. To solve the problem. To try what it takes even if it scared you. Courage.
Your empathy is unique. The times I got mad was so brief because you were so in-tune to other people's emotions. You immediately got so sorry and apologetic and I hated to see that, but that is what makes you a great person.
You were the first person I was truly myself with. I mean truly. The "helicopter". My childhood room. Things I would have taken to my grave. You were the first person I fully trusted. I never thought I would open up to that extent. You were the first person I went on holiday with. I really thought we could spent a life together.
There have been a few times I've been angry in the past... few weeks? I don't know how long it's been. Because I felt kind of swindled. I really didn't see this coming. We entered the relationship without dealbreakers. And so that's why I feel blindsided. But here I am. Tonight. After many weeks of thinking I'm healing, I'm here feeling the pain of the love I have for you aching with no place to direct it.
I wonder how you're doing. What you think of me. If you actually sent my book back. That fucking book. I will probably be wondering for a few more months if it will ever arrive in the mail. I've finally learned the lesson from my mom. The memory is vague. So vague I can't remember if it is actually a memory or some kind of made up de ja vous. But I feel like somehow she taught me that people rarely return books or take forever to return them. Never again am I lending someone a book. It seems so silly. I've devoted a whole paragraph to this. But you saw how teriffied I was of leaving stuff at each others place. Joking that you must take your hair clips home. Maybe not so much of a joke.
And this has proven it. No matter what there is always the opportunity to be blindsided. And my OCD kicks in when the breakup happens and things are not in order. My last relationship I let her keep the damn book. This one I wanted it back. I felt like I lost a part of me, but the least I could do is try to get my book back. Two paragraphs now on the damn book. Either way. I'll give it another month and then buy myself another copy. I'll feel less annoyed then.
These last two paragraphs have ruined my heartfelt letter. Now it feels stupid.
I also wanted you to know that although I've been struggling a bit with alcohol, I never got drunk. Just a bit too frequent. But the ban has helped. I'll get through it. I've also been learning about stoicism. I'm not sure if I'm on board with it but their idea is to embrace pain and suffering. Sounds good in theory but can it be done? I'll need to learn more. There are stoic meditations as well I think.
Well this was kind of nice. Although I'm talking to myself here its almost the same as having a great conversation with someone else. Even an imaginary conversation with you is better than most other ones.
If we were still together right now we would probably be having coffee on your stoep tomorrow morning.
That reminds me. I managed to get my money back for the present I got you. It was a notepad that I designed myself. It was just black and white. The font was elegant. It had your name at the top. And 3 words separated by fullstops underneath. Gorgeous. Intelligent. Elegant. Or something like that. That wasn't it. Mickey in the top right corner. Something else in the top left. I can't remember now. And then the pooches at the bottom. It would have been nice to have seen how it turned out.
Anyway I am done for the evening.
I was going to end this with xoxo GossipGirl and then I realised I'm not actually talking to you, this is reddit and then they'll think I'm a chick. And so this paragraph kind of broke the 4th wall in text format. Interesting. Breaking the 4th wall is when in a play or movie the actors talk to the audience.

2020.05.17 06:12 n3x7life So I created a flowchart to streamline my online dating life

I've been in the online dating scene now since December last year and overall I'd say I've had just slightly more bad experiences than good ones. I'm not really one to beat myself up or get disheartened easily despite the annoying nature of online dating (i.e girls using old photos from 2016 when they looked much different) and the current state of the playing field.
Recently, I've been thinking about how I can create more closer connections and ultimately have a higher rate of success with the girls I match with. So I woke up yesterday morning with the idea of creating a flowchart I can use to streamline the process of online dating to create deeper connections with my matches, and ultimately get to the dating part (whether virtual or in-person) as quickly/efficiently as possible.
Here it is for all who would like to see it:
The Online Dating Flowchart - Pandemic Edition
I created this based off my experiences with various matches over the past 1-2 months and thought about all the times where I had wasted my time, or simply lost interest in who I was chatting to. Since this is based off my experiences, if you do follow it just substitute what you know works for you based on your personality and experiences.
I have 5 new matches that I have just begun chatting to, so I'm going to be trialing this flowchart basically from now and will be refining it over the coming weeks as things play out based on what works/doesn't work.
I would love to get as much feedback/thoughts on this as possible.
Lastly, I do just want to add that this is not meant to be a pickup artist kind of thing...I am not claiming to be such a person, nor do I condone that kind of activity. Just a guy trying to make (dating) life and finding the right one a little easier on all of us.

2020.02.03 20:35 TheNormalAlternative ~*~ICYMI~*~ (Recently Announced Shows - January 2019)

Welcome to the first installment on LoG_JaM of "ICYMI."
These posts are designed to help you stay up-to-date with rock- and rock-adjacent concert announcements around NYC. We've all been in situations where we learn about an excellent concert at the last minute, but can't attend because we foolishly agreed to babysit our aunt's blind cat in Westchester or something. Don't make that mistake again. Plan in advance with the assistance of these posts which highlight the best-of-the-best rock show announcements.
Now, if you've read the intro stickied to the top of the LoG JaM sub, you might be wondering why there hasn't been an "ICYMI" post this year, and to be honest, there are a few reasons, but a big one has been just trying to figure out the best way to present this information neatly in a Reddit post. Also, I've just been so busy IRL that I haven't had time to devote to putting this together (it's extremely time-intensive).
Did you know that, on average, there are over 50 rock shows announced each week? In fact, the spreadsheet I maintain includes well over 200 concerts announced in the month of January. It makes sense when you consider the City is home to nearly 100 music venues plus dozens upon dozens of different talent buyers, booking agents and promoters, and each one of them -- plus aggregators like Bandsintown and Ohmyockness - sends out their own email blasts until your inbox is overloaded.
I'm going to use this post just to highlight the Top 100 (or so) concerts announced in January. It of course includes (nearly) all the big names coming through NYC, but also a number of shows featuring primarily/exclusively up & coming local indie artists. Over the course of this week, I'll be updating this post to include online ticketing and Facebook event page links for each show announced.
One final caveat: this post (and all "ICYMI" posts moving forward) only include rock- and rock-adjacent concerts within city limits (i.e., shows in NJ, Long Island and Westchester and hip-hop & comedy shows are excluded).
Without further adieu, here's the list...

Well...say what you will, but I've studied many Christian religions because i DO believe there's a Creator, and although not baptised, I'd have to say that the JW's more closely follow the example set by Jesus and the 1st Century Christians. Yes they count their time in the ministry, but its all volunteer work. They dont get paid. And most have a genuine concern for their fellowman and feel its crucial to preach just as Jesus and the apostles did. Of course people find them annoying, but they feel time is running out, and they want people to learn about God's plan. If God does have just ONE group of followers on earth, it cannot be anyone else but the JW's. And the pamphlet about death is given to offer comfort a d hope. Yes, their activity isnt popular, but they are only doing what the Bible instructs them to do.

One day I was waiting at the bus stop for work, dressed in all black. A jehovas witness pulled out of three lanes of traffic to park right next to me, and then proceeded to tell me he’s sorry for my loss and handed me this exact same pamphlet. Thankfully, all black is just my uniform, but can you imagine someone actually in mourning having to deal with that shit? Where are the boundaries

I had to call the cops on a couple of JW's recently. I take the bus to work. They were literally standing in the way of getting on the bus with pamphlets, and a folding bookshelf thing of their magazines. They did this for a couple of days, Each day I pointed out that they were breaking the law with the big "no soliciting" signs all over the bus stop. called the cops on them and purposely missed my bus so I could watch them get a ticket. Assholes.

Can I ask you where you studied? I cant help but disagree for instance where In the bible does it say not to get a life saving blood transfusion? Would it not be considered suicide you make assumptions on not taking blood because the bible said to not eat blood? Or why it is okay to disfellowship/shun family because group of 3 men decided that family member was not guilty for what they did when men are not capableof reading hearts? Also where in the bible did it say to declare the date and or time of the apocalypse, because it wasn't 1914,1915,1975 or when they declared that "this generation will not pass away" and then that generation passed away? Is this not against deuteronomy 18:20-22? One more question for you, do you believe that going door to door giving people pamphlets is the same as volunteering? Many religions actually volunteer and help people on there time of need by building homes and schools and giving back to the community. In what way do jws give back besides giving pamphlets to people?

A long time ago I was a JW I can explain this. We have to preach for hours and then turn in the amount of time and books or pamphlets given away to the elders on a special peice or paper at the end of the month. Because of the pressure to get more hours we had to get creative on how to get as much "time" in as possible. This one in particular is called Letter Writing we would look through the obituary or news paper trying to find people to write letters to. Usually it was the older women or the sick that would do this. One time I passed out going door to door because I forgot to eat and the people I was with where annoyed that they had to take me home because they had to stop "counting there time" to do it.

My grandparents are Jehovahs witnesses and when my grandpa passed away, the amount of advertising and pushing they do at the funeral is disgusting. The funeral home was littered with pamphlets with various propaganda on it “Do you know what the Bible says about where we go when we die?” Like crazy obvious questions to get you to pick them up to see what bullshit they’re spouting and it seems really predatory over people who feel directionless. Sad.

I'm not just the JWs. The Mormons used to come calling in my large multi family complex. They got smart and sent a few younger pretty females and I'd sometimes chat with them. On more than one occasion they asked if I knew of any families with a recent death or serious illness? I told them that I considered this picking off low hanging fruit and perhaps unethical.

I understand what you are saying. I was a jw for 30 years, so I know how good it feels when you’re convinced it’s the truth. However, this particular religion has a few practises that you should consider before you get baptised. Did you know that when you get baptised that you say ‘yes’ to dedicating your life to the Organisation too? This means that you have to obey the Governing Body in the same way that you obey Jehovah. So, if you’re told to sell your Kingdom Hall (that you’re congregation paid for) and give the proceeds of the sale to the Organisation- you must do so! That happened to my congregation (UK) As soon as you’re baptised you cannot question any teachings or do research from any other source except the ‘authorised’ jw owned websites. You have no doubt been told this already and admonished to be careful and not to read any ‘apostate lies’. If this religion has Jehovah’s backing then it should succeed whatever Satan throws at it. Job, a mere man, managed to stay true to his faith despite being severely tested. Is Jehovah weaker than Job? The Boreans were encouraged to ‘keep testing’ that they have the truth. Ask questions. Ask about the two witness rule that protects paedophiles and allows them to continue molesting children. Ask about shunning and disfellowshipping. Listen carefully to what they say and then search the internet to check if it’s true. Just type in ‘Jehovah’s Witnesses’ and hit NEWS tab. This will direct you to articles to see if what your elders tell you is true. You must do this BEFORE you get baptised. If you get baptised then you are NOT ALLOWED TO LEAVE without consequences. I used to look at my brothers and sisters at the meeting and think to myself he/she is clever, intelligent I’m being silly doubting what I’m being taught because so many people I respect believe it! I would be driving and get caught in traffic so would watch passers by and wonder what their lives were like. Were they happy? Are they hopeless? When I thought about them all dying at Armageddon it made me sad so I blocked that thought out. Then everything suddenly got real in my own life!! I left, I’m not disfellowshipped, I chose to leave. My son ( not baptised) is gay and I couldn’t bear the thought of him dying alone at Armageddon. I couldn’t abandon him so I took time out from jw to have some breathing space to make my decision. I chose my son. It was a bit like the parable of Solomon when 2 mothers were fighting over the baby. Solomon instructed his men to cut the baby in half and give each ‘mother’ a piece. Gross! The real mother immediately said let the other woman keep her baby to prevent him from being slaughtered. I was so convinced that my son was going to die at Armageddon. I was sooo conflicted. I took a time out and really thought deeply about it all. I didn’t search the internet yet I just processed all the ramifications. My son wasn’t baptised but we were still expected to limit our association with him. He was about 16 yrs old when we discovered he’s gay. We, as parents, were encouraged by the religion to search our teens internet history. It was by doing this that I saw his chat logs and so found out. He didn’t tell us himself. Ironic how we are instructed to use the internet to research/snoop on our kids but under no circumstances are we to do the same to uncover the secrets of Watchtower. I left the religion and stopped taking my 2 sons. My husband continued to attend meetings. Fast forward 7/8 years. My husband has also left the religion. Neither of us are disfellowshipped but we are both shunned by our older 2 children who remain JW. We don’t see them or hear from them and they’ve stopped us from seeing our grandchildren. It’s like we have had to give them up to the ‘other mother’ to protect our younger 2. I’m not telling you this to upset you. Just like the witnesses distributing pamphlets when they see a funeral-I’m trying to save you! Just like my ‘outing’ my son by searching online I did it to the Org too! They don’t like it when you turn the tables on them but you really should do this yourself before it’s too late. When you get baptised all the freedoms and choices you were able to make beforehand cease to exist. You ‘die’ to your old life when you’re dunked so don’t let the day you get baptised become your funeral. Ask the questions. Consider the responses. Verify online. Make your own informed decision. I wish you well.

2019.12.29 21:53 popcodswallop [WTS] VINTAGE • Early Hard Rubber Watermans and Parkers with Superflex Nibs: Wat 12 ED Wat 12 1/2 PSF Wat 12 ED Wat 52 Parker Jack-Knife 20 1/2 •

This week's vintage batch features 5 early FPs in black chased hard rubber from Waterman and Parker. All have delightful Super-Flexible XF/XXF nibs ideally suited to calligraphic writing styles such as Copperplate and Spencerian. As always, all pens are fully restored and ready to write.
 
ALBUM & TIMESTAMP
 
Pastable link: https://imgur.com/a/rhMM3l9
 
Condition (n.b.): All pens listed below have been disassembled, cleaned and restored with new sacs installed in the lever fillers and threads greased on the eyedroppers in the couple months. Each of these pens guaranteed to fill and write as designed without leaks or other problems. Nibs have been adjusted when necessary to ensure that all lay down a smooth and consistent line.
THESE PENS HAVE NO CRACKS, CHIPS, PERSONAL ENGRAVINGS, MISSING PARTS, BENT NIBS, MISALIGNED TINES, OR THREADING ISSUES.
 
Line Widths and Writing Samples: To provide buyers with as much information as possible, I have started to adopt the following line width standards: XXF (.1-.2mm); XF (approx .3mm); F (approx .4mm); M (approx .6mm); B (approx .8mm). Nib flexibility is determined by variation (max line width under pressure) and softness (amount of pressure). Flexibility designations based on variation generally run as follows for an XF/F nib: Semi-Flex (approx. 1mm); Flex (1.2-1.9mm); Superflex (>2mm). All line width measurements are taken with a digital caliper but should be considered approximations providing a general guide. Width may vary slightly depending on type of ink and paper used as well as amount of pressure applied. All writing samples are on Rhodia dot paper using Waterman Serenity Blue or Pelikan Edelstein Smokey Quartz.
 
1. 1900s-10s Waterman No. 12 Eyedropper (BCHR, eyedropper filler, 14k XF/F Superflex nib). This full-length, standard girth model measures 5 1/4" capped. The No. 12 eyedropper is the simple, utilitarian pen that first put Waterman on the map. Made of black, chased hard rubber, it was otherwise unadorned, designed as it was to be a no-nonsense writer that reliably put ink to paper for the multitudes. This pen came clipless from the factory (no holes drilled for a clip) during a time when clips were an optional upgrade. Optional nickel-plated accommodation may be fitted on buyer's request for an extra $10. The section unscrews for the barrel to filled with ink using an eyedroppepipette – holds far more ink than a lever filler of the same size. My usual caveats about early eyedroppers apply here. Some extra care must be taken with them owing to the amount of ink is stored directly in the barrel and their primitive feeds. FP design had yet to be perfected so that it is common to find some excess ink on the nib or in the cap when they are uncapped (especially if carried). Super-Flexible 14k Ideal NY #2 nib lays down a smooth and consistent XF/F line that widens to a respectable 4B+ (approx 2.3mm) under light pressure (see WRITING SAMPLE). Strong snap-back and impeccable flow through its full range of flex. Condition: very good [C]. This pen was well loved but is free of serious flaws. Hard rubber has faded to a chocolate brown color. Chasing is weak but visible. Surface is smooth and lustrous with no deep scratches or other notable blemishes. Manufacturer imprint on the barrel is weakened but still fully legible. Number stamp on barrel end is sharp and fully legible. Price: $155 SOLD
 
2. 1915-16 Waterman No. 12 1/2 PSF (BCHR w/ GF barrel bands, lever filler, 14k XXF Superflex nib). This full-length, narrow girth (1/2 size) model measures 5 1/4" capped. The first Waterman lever fillers, which were only manufactured from 1915-17, were marked ‘PSF’ (Pocket Self Filler) on the end of the barrel. They are also distinguished by having raised threads on the barrel (as opposed to later, inset threads). This is an example in black, chased hard rubber with two gold-filled barrel bands intricately engraved with an Art Deco floral motif. This pen came clipless from the factory at a time when clips were available at an added cost to the customer. Super-Flexible 14k Ideal NY #2 nib lays down a smooth and consistent XXF line that widens to a 4B+ (approx 2.4mm) under light pressure (see WRITING SAMPLE). Needlepoint hairlines, strong snap-back and reliable flow through its full range of flex. Condition: excellent- [B-]. Hard rubber isn't as oxidized as pen #1 above, but does show some fading to a dark chocolate color. Chasing shows moderate wear across barrel and cap. Surface is smooth and lustrous with no deep scratches or other notable blemishes. Gold-filled furniture is extremely clean, showing no wear aside from thin slivers of brassing on the outer edges of the barrel band nearest the nib. Manufacturer imprint on the barrel and number stamp on barrel-end are weakened but still fully legible. Price: $180 SOLD
 
3. 1906-9 Waterman No. 12 Eyedropper (BCHR, NPT, eyedropper filler, 14k XXF Superflex nib). This full-length, std. girth model measures 5 5/16" capped. The No. 12 eyedropper is the simple, utilitarian pen that first put Waterman on the map. Made of black, chased hard rubber, it was otherwise unadorned, designed as it was to be a no-nonsense writer that reliably put ink to paper for the multitudes. In addition to barrel and nib imprints, the patent dates on Waterman's clips provide crucial info about when their pens were made. The absence of a 1910 date on the clip of this example distinguishes this pen as a relatively early model, manufactured between 1906 and 1909. The section unscrews for the barrel to filled with ink using an eyedroppepipette – holds far more ink than a lever filler of the same size. My usual caveats about early eyedroppers apply here. Some extra care must be taken with them owing to the amount of ink is stored directly in the barrel and their primitive feeds. FP design had yet to be perfected so that it is common to find some excess ink on the nib or in the cap when they are uncapped (especially if carried). Super-Flexible 14k Ideal NY #2 nib lays down a smooth and consistent XXF line that widens to a 4B+ (approx 2.4mm) under light pressure (see WRITING SAMPLE). Needlepoint hairlines, strong snap-back and reliable flow over its full range of flex. Condition: excellent [B]. Hard rubber retains its dark black color with virtually no fading. Chasing shows light wear but is still visible and palpable throughout. Surface is smooth and lustrous with no deep scratches or other notable blemishes. Nickel-plated clip shows no notable wear whatsoever. Manufacturer imprint on the barrel and number stamp on barrel-end are weakened but still fully legible. **Price: ~~$210 $190~~ **SOLD
 
4. 1918-23 Waterman No. 52 (BCHR, NPT, lever filler, 14k XF Superflex nib). This full-length, std. girth model measures a hair under 5 1/2" capped. A fine example of Waterman's celebrated workhorse in black chased hard rubber with nickel-plated furniture. As on many of these pens, its Super-Flexible 14k Ideal #2 nib is a delightfully expressive write. It lays down a smooth and consistent XF line that widens to a 4B+ (approx 2.5mm) under light pressure (see WRITING SAMPLE). Fine hairlines, strong snap-back and reliable flow over its full range of flex. Condition: excellent [B]. Hard rubber retains its dark black color with virtually no fading. Chasing shows light wear but is still visible and palpable throughout. Surface is smooth and lustrous with no deep scratches or other notable blemishes. Nickel-plated furniture shows a spot of wear here and there – scarcely visible after a good polish. Manufacturer imprint on the barrel and number stamp on barrel-end are deep, sharp, and fully legible. Price: $240 $215 SOLD
 
5. c.1915 Parker Jack-Knife Lucky Curve No. 20 1/2 (BCHR, NPT, button filler, 14k XF Superflex nib). This full-length, std. girth model measures 5 3/8" capped. Manufactured roughly 3 decades after the company was founded in 1888, this early Parker features a Safety cap (marked "Jack Knife Safety" with a 1912 patent date) that was designed not to leak when carried. Rather than denoting the girth of the pen (cf. Watermans), Parker's numbering system used '1/2' to designate a chased model. This one is made of black, chased hard rubber with nickel plated clip, knurled HR blindcap and clip lock, and Lucky Curve "Xmas tree" feed. This pen is a button filler (see DETAIL PHOTO). To fill simply unscrew the blindcap, submerse the nib, and depress the brass button once. 14k Lucky Curve #2 nib is long-tined and features an early teardrop breather hole. This Super-Flexible nib lays down a buttery smooth and consistent XF line that widens to a 4B+(approx 2.4mm) under light pressure (see WRITING SAMPLE). Condition: excellent/near mint [B+]. This pen is a duplicate from my personal collection and you'd be hard pressed to find a nicer example. Hard rubber retains its dark black color with scarcely any fading. Chasing is as sharp and crisp as they come with no discernible wear. Surface is smooth and lustrous with no deep scratches or other notable blemishes. Knurling on clip-lock and blind cap is unbelievably sharp. Nickel-plated clip is clean aside from minor dulling of its luster toward the clip ball. Manufacturer imprint on the barrel, "Jack Knife" imprint on cap, and number stamp on blind cap are all factory deep, sharp, and fully legible. A time-capsule example of this pen and a lovely writer to boot. Price: $290 SOLD

"Kinukulayan ang isipan, Pabalik sa nakaraan, 'Wag mo ng balikan, Patuloy ka lang masasaktan
Hindi nagkulang kakaisip, Sa isang magandang larawan, Paulit-ulit na binabanggit, Ang pangalang nakasanayan.."

na ngangamusta kung nakauwi na ako. sadly, not yet kasi traffic sa SLEX.

I want to skip this part. and the ending part kasi sobrang lungkot :(.. yung na pala huli nating pagkikita :(. Everytime, na iisipin ko yung "See you soon.."
naiiyak ako. hindi ko alam kung ano nangyari satin.. we still have chat and calls from Sept 16 - 19. but bittersweet and up and down na tayo. sadly, Sept 22,
the moment na hindi na natin kinaya. but, sinabi ko naman sayo.. "Lalaban hagang sa dulo ng walang hanggan" and sorry ayoko ng alalahanin pa last time na tinawagan kita,
last week. October 4, hindi ko na alam kung ano nangyari, for me kasi kung masaya ka or naging masaya ka ituloy mo lang, hindi mo naman kailangan isipin at pangunahan ng negative thoughts ang future.. but things went really bad for us. and still..

here i am, stuck..
holding my rusty sword and shield, trying to defeat the final boss with my last dying breath.. and hoping that my Goddess will rescue me.
still im very grateful to the time we had, and i know the feelings we share together were all real.

all i want now is, you reach/read this post.. i want you know that.. you are very special.. and kung makikita mo at tatanungin mo ko, alam ko every details ng pinagsamahan natin. i told you before, i will risk everything, actually na risk ko na, hindi mo lang ako hinintay.
however, i love myself too, and im giving myself a limit *.. until my spartan race.*

\edited: October 14\**
Oh, it's good to be true, If our hopes and dreams come true Wish that I had more Of this borrowed time If only it would last a lifetime.
October 9 - Borrowed Time - im glad and thankful, we had a short exchange of messages thru. telegram, im thankful that you read this post. and yet again, leaving me a false hope by saying "Sana nga makapag usap tayo, para ma settle natin lahat ng nangyari".
- i replied, na mag bigay ka na lang ng date/time/location.. and still, yes i know it is a false hope.. kasi hagang ngayon wala kang reply...
... i miss you, i miss the way you laugh, smile, make faces, i miss the time we're together, Wish that I had more, Of this borrowed time..
..yes tama na tong ginagawa ko, but then again im still here.. lemme just feel more pain until my spartan race, until to the point na wala na akong maramdaman.. im really addicted to this pain..
\edited: October 15\**
I've been spending some time, Thinking I'd be alright, Don't know if I could Really make it tonight..
October 15 - Upside down - wow yey! you replied again and we had a bit of convo "Huy, Kamusta ka na?".. "Kamusta Work?".. i can't explain siguro every time na magkausap tayo masaya ako, and siguro i just filling it up with our memories, but then pinipigilan ko sarili ko, yet hindi ko mapigilan na kulitin ka, isend sayo mga kulitan namin sa office.. but yes.. "seen*".*
Thinking about you, Is almost breaking my heart..
- i told my self not to wait and think of you anymore, I thought napatay ko na yung butterflies, i did everything to the point i workout until to the last drop of my sweat, para paguuwi ako matutulog na lang and will not feel any pain. You turn my whole world upside down..

\edited: October 17\**
Her best days will be some of my worst, She finally met a man that's gonna put her first..
October 17 - Breakeven - you know what ever since, you've been always in my search bar, i keep on checking your last online, keep on checking your profile, you recent post, recent story, even in Spotify i always checkd you last song played and currently playing.. (Oct. 16) yesterday im so bothered.. 19H last online. dunno why, maybe your really happy na and yea may kasama ka.. 'Cause she's moved on while I'm still grieving..
What am I supposed to do when the best part of me was always you, i really wanted you to be in my spartan race, i always remember that we planned to go in BGC, i always wonder if we didn't end up like this, we are going to visit the Van Gogh Museum in BGC, before kasi you shared the "Starry Night" in fb and yea ganda nya..

They say bad things happen for a reason, But no wise words gonna stop the bleeding.. i really want to talk to you in person, before my spartan race.. maybe for the last time.. but i think di na mangyayari, sobrang casual and stranger like na eh. ayoko sana nun. but then pano nga ako mag he-heal if ganon gusto ko.. so yes, im soaking my self to this pain and will soak until oct 26.. feeling ko eto yung pain na hinahanap hanap ng isip at pakiramdam ko.
I'm still alive but I'm barely breathing..

\edited: October 20\**
October 18-19 - "when race mo sa spartan?" natuwa ako atleast tinanong mo, though sad too kasi akala ko alam mo kung kelan lagi ko kasi sinasab sayo yun dati.. and still here i am, hurting my self again by asking you if you can come with.. sadly you replied "Hindi ako pwede sumama dyan syempre. Ano gagawin ko dun" . ayoko na lang isipin.. siguro may magagalit na sayo kapag sumama ka. such that i can't just let go of this very memorable and very special memories na still nag iimagine pa din ako ng mga magagandang mangyayari with you.
- i love you, so i asked my circle of friends since kinder to meet me today (oct 20) tell everything tell my situation.. i really want you and fight for you, i told them that. but im scared, and told also them na.. "baka wala na sya, wala na akong babalikan" but who cares i just want to risk this last moment.. so i sent you message thru. chat.. asking kung may " Mahal kita, gusto kitang piliin, chance pa ba tayo?"
at this moment all i want is that you give me a chance, all i can think of is the best part of us.. na ligawan ka na parang highschool sweet heart, and give my 101%.. but then im scared. so all i want is you..as my Goddess.. bless me with your strength.

*****edited: October 21\*

and want things to be perfect, however we managed to fix things naman. and you ask me "When can i see you again?" i replied "Soon, See you soon, Iloveyou", you replied "Iloveyou" din.

- sobrang lungkot ko, naiyak ako habang pauwi, hindi ko alam kung bakit. pero ang lungkot ko. hindi ko na lang sinabi sayo yun. but there you are calling,
na ngangamusta kung nakauwi na ako. sadly, not yet kasi traffic sa SLEX.

I want to skip this part. and the ending part kasi sobrang lungkot :(.. yung na pala huli nating pagkikita :(. Everytime, na iisipin ko yung "See you soon.."
naiiyak ako. hindi ko alam kung ano nangyari satin.. we still have chat and calls from Sept 16 - 19. but bittersweet and up and down na tayo. sadly, Sept 22,
the moment na hindi na natin kinaya. but, sinabi ko naman sayo.. "Lalaban hagang sa dulo ng walang hanggan" and sorry ayoko ng alalahanin pa last time na tinawagan kita,
last week. October 4, hindi ko na alam kung ano nangyari, for me kasi kung masaya ka or naging masaya ka ituloy mo lang, hindi mo naman kailangan isipin at pangunahan ng negative thoughts ang future.. but things went really bad for us. and still..

here i am, stuck..
holding my rusty sword and shield, trying to defeat the final boss with my last dying breath.. and hoping that my Goddess will rescue me.
still im very grateful to the time we had, and i know the feelings we share together were all real.

all i want now is, you reach/read this post.. i want you know that.. you are very special.. and kung makikita mo at tatanungin mo ko, alam ko every details ng pinagsamahan natin. i told you before, i will risk everything, actually na risk ko na, hindi mo lang ako hinintay.
however, i love myself too, and im giving myself a limit *.. until my spartan race.*

\edited: October 14\**
Oh, it's good to be true, If our hopes and dreams come true Wish that I had more Of this borrowed time If only it would last a lifetime.
October 9 - Borrowed Time - im glad and thankful, we had a short exchange of messages thru. telegram, im thankful that you read this post. and yet again, leaving me a false hope by saying "Sana nga makapag usap tayo, para ma settle natin lahat ng nangyari".
- i replied, na mag bigay ka na lang ng date/time/location.. and still, yes i know it is a false hope.. kasi hagang ngayon wala kang reply...
... i miss you, i miss the way you laugh, smile, make faces, i miss the time we're together, Wish that I had more, Of this borrowed time..
..yes tama na tong ginagawa ko, but then again im still here.. lemme just feel more pain until my spartan race, until to the point na wala na akong maramdaman.. im really addicted to this pain..
\edited: October 15\**
I've been spending some time, Thinking I'd be alright, Don't know if I could Really make it tonight..
October 15 - Upside down - wow yey! you replied again and we had a bit of convo "Huy, Kamusta ka na?".. "Kamusta Work?".. i can't explain siguro every time na magkausap tayo masaya ako, and siguro i just filling it up with our memories, but then pinipigilan ko sarili ko, yet hindi ko mapigilan na kulitin ka, isend sayo mga kulitan namin sa office.. but yes.. "seen*".*
Thinking about you, Is almost breaking my heart..
- i told my self not to wait and think of you anymore, I thought napatay ko na yung butterflies, i did everything to the point i workout until to the last drop of my sweat, para paguuwi ako matutulog na lang and will not feel any pain. You turn my whole world upside down..

\edited: October 17\**
Her best days will be some of my worst, She finally met a man that's gonna put her first..
October 17 - Breakeven - you know what ever since, you've been always in my search bar, i keep on checking your last online, keep on checking your profile, you recent post, recent story, even in Spotify i always checkd you last song played and currently playing.. (Oct. 16) yesterday im so bothered.. 19H last online. dunno why, maybe your really happy na and yea may kasama ka.. 'Cause she's moved on while I'm still grieving..
What am I supposed to do when the best part of me was always you, i really wanted you to be in my spartan race, i always remember that we planned to go in BGC, i always wonder if we didn't end up like this, we are going to visit the Van Gogh Museum in BGC, before kasi you shared the "Starry Night" in fb and yea ganda nya..

They say bad things happen for a reason, But no wise words gonna stop the bleeding.. i really want to talk to you in person, before my spartan race.. maybe for the last time.. but i think di na mangyayari, sobrang casual and stranger like na eh. ayoko sana nun. but then pano nga ako mag he-heal if ganon gusto ko.. so yes, im soaking my self to this pain and will soak until oct 26.. feeling ko eto yung pain na hinahanap hanap ng isip at pakiramdam ko.
I'm still alive but I'm barely breathing..

\edited: October 20\**
October 18-19 - "when race mo sa spartan?" natuwa ako atleast tinanong mo, though sad too kasi akala ko alam mo kung kelan lagi ko kasi sinasab sayo yun dati.. and still here i am, hurting my self again by asking you if you can come with.. sadly you replied "Hindi ako pwede sumama dyan syempre. Ano gagawin ko dun" . ayoko na lang isipin.. siguro may magagalit na sayo kapag sumama ka. such that i can't just let go of this very memorable and very special memories na still nag iimagine pa din ako ng mga magagandang mangyayari with you.
- i love you, so i asked my circle of friends since kinder to meet me today (oct 20) tell everything tell my situation.. i really want you and fight for you, i told them that. but im scared, and told also them na.. "baka wala na sya, wala na akong babalikan" but who cares i just want to risk this last moment.. so i sent you message thru. chat.. asking kung may " Mahal kita, gusto kitang piliin, chance pa ba tayo?"
at this moment all i want is that you give me a chance, all i can think of is the best part of us.. na ligawan ka na parang highschool sweet heart, and give my 101%.. but then im scared. so all i want is you..as my Goddess.. bless me with your strength.

Post Body:

I'm currently on a public library computer using free wifi, because my rich stingy parents haven't bought me a device of my own. This is my only escape to the outside world.
I come from one of those "conservative" JW families, where if you're not reading the Bible, you're perusing the watchtower magazine, praying or 'witnessing to' (annoying the hell out of) the neighbourhood.
I feel like I'm an outcast in prison.
We don't have internet. No TV. No cell phone. My mum won't even let me check the letterbox incase there's 'something explicit' in there. I am forced to attend meetings I don't like. I am forced to pray to a being who I don't think exists. I'm smart, but I'm not allowed to study for school because that's "the evil, transient things of this world".
Why don't I leave? I'm 16. A lanky, bowl-cut teenager cannot face the world alone with no money.
Why don't I leave when I get to 18? I've seen what happens to a close friend. Her family disowned her. Her other friends acted like she didn't exist. I tried to keep contact, but if I show my sympathy with her, I will be severely punished. She tried to get jobs, but it's hard with no experience or life skills.
Guys, what do I do? How do I break free?
Edit: My free wifi is about to terminate, so I'll have to come back tomorrow (if I can).
Update: My free internet finished when I had 1 comment and 4 upvotes. I have to admit when I logged back tonight on I got a little overwhelmed at the response. The librarian asked me if I was okay. Like you guys advised, I told him what was going on, and he's promised to try and help, whilst warning he's not sure what he can legally do, if it's without parental permission. Here's my plan, and it's kind of a compilation of all your ideas:
I'm going to read up on personal image, employable characteristics, do some extra reading for school (I'm home schooled) so hopefully a university/employer will accept me at some point. I have a dream of becoming a psychologist, so I can help to deal with people's personal issues, which is naturally something I have great sympathy for. Might do some research on that as well.
The only problem is I don't get much free time; about an hour at the start of the day and maybe an hour at the end. This is when my parents are off doing something (not sure what) and they dump me at the library with the latest watchtower.
The librarian is going to talk to my parents about getting a small job I can do at the library (cleaning, stacking/moving books, maybe even some desk work). Over time I should be able to accrue some funds (not sure where I'll keep them yet). It's going to be a steep climb, but you guys have inspired me to start the journey, and for that I could not be more grateful.

I’m am an ex-jw. For me, education was my path to freedom. I knew I needed to be financially independent and that focusing on my education was my path out. My family supported me going to college and received a lot of heat for it. Your conservative family probably won’t be so kind. Can you talk to a school counselor? He/she should be able to help you apply to colleges.

A quick note about self-doxxing from a helpful exmormon.
In posts like this include as little information as possible. I'm not sure if the Jehovah's Witness community is the same, but there are literally people who scroll through exmormon, find posts like these, and then try to figure out who the kid is so that they can tell their parents.
Picture if someone in your congregation heard that somewhere in the world a lanky 16 yr old with a bowl cut who knows someone who was shunned at 18 was in the library today trying to leave the religion. Upon hearing that, would they instantly think of you? Then that's too much information.
Be careful. Getting outed early would be terrible. The internet is not always a safe place. Don't give out details that aren't necessary to the story. Mix in a few false facts to throw people off.
A few people have suggested reaching out to the exmormon community and groups like tapir signal. Do that too. Our experiences are similar and the exmo community is a bit better established.
This random stranger from the internet is proud of you for taking action at such a young age. You're going to get through this. There will be very difficult times, but one day you will find that it was all worth it.
Final note. If you decide to edit out the details I mentioned, drop a comment here or send me a message and I'll delete that part of this comment. Really gotta protect that identity.

Ex-JW here. I have a lot of sympathy for what you're going through. As bad as your situation is, what you have going for you is that you've decided to get out young. The best thing that you can do right now is set yourself up for success for your future life free from the cult. It's coming up quickly.
You're apparently still in school (hopefully you aren't home schooled). Your parents most likely are strongly against higher education Ignore that. Start preparing for college. Talk to school counselors, your teachers, whoever you can to help you get into college, hopefully with a lot of financial aid. The resources are out there. Tell then about your situation. Education professionals will not be sympathetic to parents that actively discourage education. Make them your allies. Do not tell your parents about your college plans until you absolutely have to. (Of course none of this applies if your parents are actually pro-college, as I understand some JWs actually are now).
If you can't take it any more than do as others have suggested and try to get child services involved as others have suggested. I don't have any experience with that, that's up to you to decide if that's a step that you need to take. I second exjw as a great and supportive resource. You didn't say where you were located but on the odd chance that you happen to be in Central Texas and want to meet up with some sympathetic ex-JWs I'd be happy to introduce you. If you're not then the folks at exjw can probably help you meet some others that have been through what you're going through in your area.
Above all try to stay positive. This part of your life will be over soon. There's a whole big exciting life waiting for you after you get out. Start preparing now. Feel free to PM me if you need to chat.
Edit: Someone has cross posted this over at exjw. There's already a lot of support for you over there make sure you check it out.

Good for you for figuring this out now. I grew up Jw and it took me until my 30’s to figure it out. I saw my older sister’s life destroyed when she got kicked out. I was isolated and “homeschooled” if you can call it that. Which really makes it hard to get ahead. I think there’s a pretty big exjw community in Toronto. You can connect with some people in your area and start making a plan to get out. Use whatever resources through the government that are available. It sounds like you already know not to discuss your lack of beliefs with your parents. exjw is a great sub for support and advice.

OP, this is a shitty situation that your parents have put you in. It really really sucks that they're forcing you to choose between your family and your beliefs, but unfortunately everyone still in the JW community is likely to shun you, ironically because they're terrified of being shunned in turn.
You need to be aware that life is probably going to suck for years to come if you do go through with this. It's going to be hard, and lonely, and you may never see some of your family again. That's the awful truth.
If you do continue with this, make sure you find people you can talk to and rely on for the support that you need. Your friend that left, along with exjw and some of the support groups mentioned by others will all be good starting resources.
You'll need a job. Apply for anything and everything, starting with fast food, even if you aren't entirely qualified. Sometimes you'll be surprised where you get a bite. Get a job, and once you have that under your belt, start working to improve your skills for something better. Go to college if you can afford it, or take a look at the free courses available online. Study your ass off, and you should be able to improve your life little by little. Trade school is another great option!
You'll need a place to stay. I don't have any recommendations on this, but perhaps those support groups can connect you to somewhere.
Good luck, OP. You're going to need it!

I grew up as a witness, my dad was the PO of the Kingdom Hall. I was baptized at 15. I will tell you there is sure fire to escape and not lose your family. The answer is education. Your family doesn’t want you to go to college probably, like mine. Go to college, no matter how hard it is just go. Go to community college and study English. You’re family will let you go attend college if you tell them you want to be a teacher and not an anthropologist. Don’t settle for trade school, you will love learning. Use the knowledge you gain to slowly distance yourself while trying to be respectful of their beliefs. Please feel free to message me if you want to talk more. Study other religions, show your family the commonalities respectfully. My parents still try to witness to me about armageddon, I respond with global warming and the browning of the earth and how we need to do something now and not keep waiting for Jesus to return. All the best good buddy!

As an ex JW the above advice is very sound. Begin to prepare for your exit. Is it difficult- YES! Leaving what you know and your family to start a life of your own. Yes very difficult but it is SO worth it! There are many of us that have been in your shoes and will help. I’m in Northern California so if your around here give ma a shout. The hardest part is over. You have chosen to wake up. Good luck and I hope we get to hear updates.

Tell tale is a great source to learn about some the things certain cults have done, hes a ex jw. I would say if possible try to make a freind outside the jehovah's witnesses, makes sure nobody knows you 2 are freinds. Make sure you can trust them and when you can leave ask them to help house you while you can get a job and start saving money for your own place. I'm sorry my advice may be bad considering I'm trying to leave a cult too so I wish you luck.

I feel for you. I'm so sorry you have to go through this. You're not alone and it will get better. I was lucky as a JW in that my dad was a non-believer and so my parents weren't very strict. But I did still bear witness to the extreme gas-lighting and brainwashing that happens especially with the super strict parents. I really hope you can escape and break free, and now. So I'm not going to discuss that since others already have. I'm going to discuss what to do if that doesn't happen. Plan B.
Look at these next few years, not as a prison sentence, but as a learning experience. An opportunity to build yourself. Your life is your story to tell, not theirs. Don't let anyone put your story on hold. Maybe you lack control of your physical presence, but you can control your mind. Trust me, when I broke free at 18 I was an expert at focusing my mind past/through distractions.
Immerse yourself in the stories of others that have had to endure struggles against their own will. "Obstacle is the way" and "Art of Living" are good entry-level books.. Study stoicism which helps you detach from the never-ending judgment that you are going through. To gain perspective into cultivating mindset Read "Long Walk to Freedom" about Nelson Mandela. Maybe you can tell your parents they're required reading for a school project. If my experience is similar, you're an expert at lying to your parents and elders so I'm confident you'll find a way. It'll be hard, but this is your story to tell OP. If they're going to imprison you, be the hero, don't let it break you down, let it build you up.
Best of luck!!!

OMG that's terrible. My girlfriend grew up with a mom that is a Jehovah's Witness and a dad that wasn't, but he died when she was thirteen. Her two year younger sister got baptized. My girlfriend got kicked out at sixteen because she refused to get baptised. Luckily she has an aunt on her late dad's side that lived close that she could stay with. Her younger sister ended up getting pregnant out of wedlock. So she was excommunicated. Her mom still talks to her, but pretty much only to watch her son, which she charges her for.
Her mom still talks to my girlfriend, even though she wasn't married to our daughter's dad because she never got baptized. I started dating her when she was two months pregnant and our daughter is almost a year. Her mom still thinks I'm going to "use her for sexual pleasure," because I'm an atheist and not the real father.
I just know that my girlfriend and her sister are super close now that they're in their thirties. It's heartbreaking that your parents could turn a sibling against you.

It seems I understand why Jehovah’s Witnessism is prohibited by law in some countries. Hope you’ll succeed in getting out of the fanatics circle.
On the other hand I sometimes turn off all electronics because there are so much useless information and shit of the world... and you stream it through your brain and it changes you making anxious, nervous and unsure...

Not an exjw, but a “run away”. Find out exactly what info you will need for college and get it before you leave. I had to wait till I was 25 till I could file for financial aid because my mom wouldn’t give me her social to apply, and I wasn’t emancipated so I couldn’t apply without it till that age.
I hope to hell I’m wrong and that this has changed since then because it put me on one hell of a detour through life.

This.
Please don’t hesitate because you’ve been conditioned to think that clicking on that link is the equivalent of entering Satan’s lair. ExJW is nothing but folks just like you who are either struggling through the same thing or have made it through to a normal, happy life and want to help others.
Only people who’ve done what you’re trying to do can help you do it. I wish I did at your age instead of wasting another 18yrs in misery. Hang in there, and know that your life really can be whatever YOU choose.

A heads up: Your parents/friends are going to do everything they can to pull you back into it if you leave. They will use guilt, shame, fear, emotions, anything to make you feel helpless and alone, they'll tell you that you're making a fatal mistake, and you need Jehovah, etc.
Don't let it get to you. They can't help it; they've been conditioned to do this, as you know. Things will get better. Reality will begin to replace the fantasy that was your religion/life. Your "family" and "friends" will shun you, because a creepy man at their "Kingdom Hall" (it's not a church! because reasons!) told them to. What kind of mind-control bullshit would make a parent shun their own child? That is all you need to know about Watchtower Bible and Tract Society of Pennsylvania. They are a cult, they use brainwashing techniques to groom and control people for their benefit. Get as far away from them as you can, don't ever look back, and if you can save friends and family from them, do it, but some people are just hopelessly lost in it...

Hi there. I'm an ex-JW. I was disfellowshipped (technically disassociated) at age 21. I'm now 35, and I can tell you it gets better. If your congregation is like mine, you are taught your whole life that worldy people will never care about you, that your only true friends are in the congregation, etc. This is not true. I have a great husband and very supportive group of friends now. Even though my family and former JW friends don't talk to me anymore, I do not feel like my life is worse for it.
I know that at 16, you won't be able to do the things I could do at 21, just from a legal standpoint. Perhaps you can emancipate yourself from your parents? I'm not sure how the procedures for that work.
Please feel free to reach out to me if you want any help, advice, or commiseration. I'm always happy to help JWs who find themselves struggling with leaving.

There's always exjw if you need people who have been through similar situations. I cannot really give you more help than that, since I was not raised in the organization. Best of luck to you in your journey out, friend.

My dad was raised as a Jehovah's Witness. When he was 18, he got a job and moved out. When he was ready he went to the kingdom hall and told them he was leaving, and he did. It took a long time but he finally went to college in his late 20s after he'd been discouraged from attending college for his whole life. His family was dirt poor so he didn't have to give up much when he left but he did lose his family who disowned him. He was still allowed to talk to them but it ruined the relationship. His mother didn't attend his wedding, etc. His brother left too but in a more dramatic fashion and he was disassociated so no one could speak to him.
Anyway, point is, it was hard and he had to do a lot on his own. But with hard work and saving and courage, he built a wonderful life for himself. He's been married for 35 years, has a loving family, a home, a boat, plenty of friends, and freedom from religion. His brother who left also built a wonderful life of his own with a wife two daughters, a home, freedom from religion, etc.
The reality is that when peoole go to college they make new friends and often leave the high school friends behind anyway. So it'd be pretty normal to lose touch with your friends anyway.
I'd say save what money you can, get a job, save more money, get your own place, go to community college first, then transfer to a 4 year school, get a therapist, and be brave. It'll be hard but you can do it if you want to. You will lose some important things and people, no doubt, but you will build something even better of your own.

I was in a similar situation although not as strict as JW, just hard-core Southern Baptist. I played their game, didn't rock the boat, read every book I could get my hands on and left home at 18 when I had a job that would pay the rent. The people who will break contact with you are the exact ones you don't want in your life. Start imagining your plan for how you'll get away. It's going to be tough but thousands before you have done it.
I agree with the other poster about checking out exjw Best of luck.

Hey, I hope you get a chance to see this soon. I also grew up as a Witness, getting out isn’t easy but it’s worth the effort even more than you can imagine!
I found a lot of great help at exjw, they’ve all been through it too.
Some quick advice, be as vague as you can about giving personal details away online, especially location or identifying information. If an active Witness finds it they will report back to your local elders.
If you are not homeschooled, go to a teacher or school councillor that you trust and tell them that you stuck in a high control cult. If you are homeschooled maybe your local social services.
When you do get out, don’t expect your family and friends to keep you in their life. You don’t control them, you control you, so go out and make new friends wherever you want. One of the greatest realisations I had when I left was that any person I met could be a potential friend. I have a great group of unconditional people in my life now, something that isn’t possible when you’re still in.
Feel free to message me if you need to.
Best of luck!

I was a JW in the same situation as you are right now. I was disowned and had no friends. Here is what helped me.
  1. Move out when you are 18 yo, but first find a job.
  2. Apply for financial aid and let your school know specifically about your situation. You may have to take few loans.
  3. Inquire about jobs located on the school campus as those positions are there to help students.
  4. Join a club and get as active as possible. You will definitely meet awesome people!
  5. Look into seeing a therapist as it is hard ASF being disowned by your family.
Please let me know if you have questions. Hope everything works out for you!

Hello fellow Torontonian. First things first, please know that you're not alone. My wife's family are Jehovah's Witnesses, but she is not. Her situation is different from yours, but believe me, I understand what you are going through.
As a 16 year old, you are in a very tricky position. As you know, you are now old enough to be disfellowshipped. You don't want that to happen. Instead, you want to disassociate, on YOUR terms, once have established some personal security. So for now, you need to continue to walk the talk, and use resources you can trust to help you organize an exit strategy.
Your top priority is housing, and that's also your biggest challenge. Trying to find a decent place to live in our very expensive city, at your age, will be extremely difficult. Your best bet, and the one that most young people start with, is a residence at their college or university. You mentioned in your post that you're not allowed to study for school, but are you in school? If so, I suggest talking to your Guidance Department about your college/university application, AND start looking for bursaries and financial aid options for postsecondary students who do not have parental support.
I know that waiting until you finish high school might seem impossible, but in the long run, I really think it's your best bet. I should add that, in addition to being someone who lives in the same city as you, I'm also a high school teacher. I have taught some kids who are on their own, and their situations were extremely precarious. You need to avoid this if you can.
Think of it this way: you are not just planning an escape right now. You're planning the rest of your life, so starting off on the right foot is absolutely vital.

How do I get medals?
Medals are the "premium" currency of Metal Slug Attack. Like many freemium games, you'll get a large amount of them for "free" when you start playing... but that supply will dwindle as your account levels up. Eventually the only "fast" method will be to spend real cash: freemium games are for those with either patience or money.
In the long run, your main supply will come from gathering points during events. Marathon events, which usually occur near the start of a month, are the most "generous" in terms of "time for medals" (and MSP). That doesn't mean they're the only events worth participating in, though - the units they unlock tend to be weaker than those from other event types. kyr_chang has a write up on the medal counts from all event types here.
How should I spend medals?
On the step or box cranks, generally - there's very seldom a reason to spend them anywhere else these days. On average, it costs ~12.5k medals to unlock a step unit, or ~18k medals to unlock a box unit. Luck's involved, so you could spend a lot less or more than that (a 50% deviation isn't uncommon, for better or worse). You won't unlock all crank units without forking out real money for more medals, so it pays to build up a reserve for those ones you really want!
Do not spend medals in the "shops". This goes double if you're thinking about buying equippable items for your units! As your account levels up, you'll get tons more items for free - but your medal supply will dry up, and medals are the only way you can spin the step / box cranks.
Occasionally you'll get free "crank keys" that let you spin the regular "medal crank" without spending actual medals. Daily Ranked, Try Line, and United Front events make up to ten of these available at a time - if you save up that many, then you can use them all at once to get better prizes. The keys expire if you don't use them before an event ends, but the game'll use them for you if you miss the cut-off dates.
How do I get MSP?
Putting aside the obvious (such as completing your daily quests), really early on, the way to go is through the Rebel Gigant stage that appears on the Attack map every now and then. It generally shows up once every eight hours, and is pretty much sure to appear the first time you clear an Attack stage each day, so the idea is to finish off all your other Daily Quests and redeem them before triggering it so's you can dump in as many sorties as possible. The more times you can beat it within an hour, the more MSP it pays out.
Once you join a guild, you can also ask for help in the chat. Depending on how well off the other members are, their contributions through Good Jobs could add up to hundreds of thousands a day (perhaps even over a million if the guild's really active and very generous).
Later on, your best bet is playing events. The different types give different amounts, with Marathons providing the most. Once you get to the point where you can farm Hell maps, you won't have any trouble gathering tons of MSP.
How should I spend MSP?
Through the "Customise Bases" screen first, no question. In particular, it's imperative that you upgrade everything relating to AP production. Consider that your main priority.
Outside of that, just dump it in to the units you're currently using. There's no benefit to upgrading units that aren't in your decks.
Once you level up enough you'll have MSP coming out of your ears, so don't worry too much about "wasting" it.
What units should I use?
Generally, you'll want to use whatever the other players are using to kick you around in Online mode - so if in doubt, go play there. Constantly losing really quickly? You need more low-AP units. Constantly losing after a prolonged battle? You need more high-AP units. Experiment to find the balance that works for you.
Don't have the units you see online? A lot of decent units are only available for a limited time during certain events, and aren't made available again for a long time afterwards. But Metal Slug Attack is a collection-based game, which means that new units are constantly being introduced to outpower the old ones: if you do miss something decent, odds are you'll soon get something better from a later event anyway. The golden units from United Front events in particular are usually pretty strong. These pop up roughly once a month.

2019.07.03 23:59 jalbp Top to Bottom Twitch Chat CSS

Hey /Twitch,
I have made a Reverse Scrolling Twitch Chat (or Top to Bottom Scrolling chat) Simply put this allows twitch chat messages to start from the top and go to the bottom. I made this for myself personally so I do not have to look down to see a message.
I built this because most of the workarounds I have seen online are either out dated (due to the new framework twitch uses) or use flex-direction: column-reverse; with ends up inverting the full chat window cutting off the emote, bits menu and sends the top bits to the bottom too. This simple just flips the chat window without needing to flip the message bar or top bits.
Code: https://pastebin.com/64QRZJHS
Example: https://i.imgur.com/lwj3EWc.gif
To use this you will need a extension for Chrome or Firefox that will allow you to insert custom css into a page. Personally I use something called StyleBot for Chrome and Custom Style Script for Firefox.
I have also put this onto my GitHub if I need to make any future changes to it.
I hope some people find it useful :)
