Native American Tribes Propose 2020 Ballot Initiative to

Petit Theory on why INTRAVENOUS INJECTION generally seems to be considered the most extreme of the common ROAs,, in terms of "addictive pull"

Just something I've been pondering, wanted to share my thoughts and open them up to questions and criticism.
I remember the first time I IVed a drug, it was heroin I believe, good stuff. I remember being surprised by the apparent delay in onset of effect.
Now, when you think IV, you don't normally think "delay" right? You think, instantaneous effect! Right? Instant peak! That's what I expected.
But as far as I can tell this simply isn't the reality of it, and when I think on it, I'm quite sure I've never had an IV shot, out of thousands perhaps, that didn't take at least a minute or two to really get rolling. Usually they seem to reach peak effect around 5-10 min after. Later still. Again, not quite as instant as instant gets. TV mislead me once again? Naturally.
I'm sure this might come as a surprise if you've never IVed, but yeah, it's a fact, IV is not as fast as the movies make it look, not by a solid 30 sec at minimum. After all, it makes sense--just because the drug is in your blood stream doesn't mean it doesn't still need some time to diffuse and find its actual receptor targets.
(Speaking of which, that's an interesting prospect to consider, how is it indeed that these billions of billions of drug molecules are able to diffuse and find their targets so goshdarn quickly? It almost feels as if it's simply a matter of the drug molecules sinking into a state of lower and lower energy as they mesh with proteins, membranes etc.) It amazes me out of what must be millions of possible configurations the little particles might land in, they happen to hit the target consistently time after time as if there no other way it could go..
I've noticed that in fact, inhalation might often be slightly faster than IV, in terms of time to peak anyway.. When you hit a bong for instance, you often feel your vision blur slightly within a second or two of exhaling....ostensively that blurring being caused by the cannabinoid hitting their marks (idk exactly what causes it). It's definitely close between the two.
Clearly the classic explanation of "IV is just really fast" doesn't completely hold water. There must be a more sophisticated explanation right? Well, FWIW this is what I came up with to explain what, if not the speed of onset, pure and simple, makes IV so extreme?
First I decided, it's obvious that there is a difference between hitting a small peak fast, (as with smoking/inhalation) and hitting a larger peak somewhat slower (as IV typically does).
With inhalation, there is something of a fundamental limit on the amount consumed per cycle--you can only inhale so much gas before your lungs run out of volume.
Indeed is seems that in general, inhalation is limited to maybe 20mg tops of substance inhaled per breath/cycle (20mg would be a really BIG hit undoubtedly) More realistically, maybe 3-10mg is the average for the weight of matter in a normal puff on a cig, pull on a joint, etc.
Now tbh, for that above figure, I'm just using my own anecdotal data here, measured with my fairly accurate scale (has a 1-2mg MOE roughly) but I suscept it should be fine as I'd bet this parameter likely doesn't vary much for other people....
On the other hand, with IV you have considerably more ability to dose large amounts in one cycle. While a vaped hit of meth is maybe 10mg tops, a user might inject in a single shot up to 500mg or more in extreme cases. Clearly you can scale up the dose with IV in a way that's not possible with inhalation.
With IV, the higher peak is what makes up for the slightly slower if not roughly equal onset speeds between the two ROAs. With small doses the difference between ROAs is negligible, but with increasing amounts the Victor becomes clear.... IV wins once we get over more than what you can smoke in about the same amount of time. After that going higher and higher in dose, inhalation becomes exponentially slower than IV. .
Is this it though? I thought not. Since the first time I tried it, I'd always noticed that there is a strange sort of extra behavioral effect you get from IV which is much less present for other ROAs...
It's hard to explain, but to put it in layman's terms, IV just always seemed to have some kind of "cool" or "thrilling" edge that the others clearly lacked.
To be clear this "thrill factor" isn't just my observation, indeed it's a well worn trend that when a person tries IV, there is a definite propensity for them to become kind of obsessed with it (this happened to me somewhat) and the preparatory ritual IV entails.
The placebo effect for one can be especially pronounced with IV, so much so that doses of plain sugar water can registered in the brain as if it's truly heroin for a few minutes (provided that's what the user expects to be getting at). It's a very strange sensation I've been party to myself more than once; an unpleasant surprise that fools you into thinking you got the real deal, when you actually just got scammed, only a minute later for it to dawn on you that the high isn't real but "imagined. "
What's the cause of this? Why does it seem so particularly extreme as placebos go? And is it truly just "imagined" when the effect you feel at first seems uncanny to that of the actual drug? I thought on this and it occurred to me that in a sense, the effect wasn't "imagined" at all... Actually, the only difference was that my brain had triggered the effect on its own, organically...
Now that had me thinking... Is that effect still there with actual drug as well? Does it simply merge with the larger drug effect like 2 waves, adding a slight "all natural" boost from my brain's reward centers celebrating the apparent administration of the drug before the actual effect hits?
What an interesting thought. I decided this seemed like a plausible explanation, that the placebo effect I felt wasn't something that appeared in the absence of a real drug, but instead was there the whole time, real drug or no. This certainly changed my understanding of the placebo effect and gave me new reverence for its power, which I'd thought was much less impressively before.
Which brings us to the final piece of the puzzle. One day I remembered what I had heard about how dopamine works to predict Reward in this Stanford lecture on YouTube.
According to the lecture, there are dopaminergic cells, in the mid rain I believe, , that respond to a cue in way that predicts,, not to the size of the reward expected, as much as the chance of receiving the reward. So this might be a light for the cue, food foe the reward, for example.
According to this framework which seems to be pretty well founded, these neurons respond most strongly to odds close to 50:50. The closer to even the odds are of winning, IOW, the bigger the surge these cells make. And while this surge isn't a "reward signal" in the proper sense, is definitely has a modulating effect on that signal and others involved in decision making and focus.
Thus means that if a reward is expected and the subject gets it close to 100% of the time, these neurons stop responding at more than their baseline signal. They respond with a bit more signal to lower odds like. 0.1:1 than sure odds, and as I said the signal peaks at 1:1 and goes down from there.
Clearly these cells are programming a kind of learning function. By tracking the level of risk, they communicate to the organism how much attention is worth devoting here. For example if your chances of winning a race are 99%, you likely wo t be very stressed by the prospect cause a win is all but sure. Similarly with odds of 0,01, it's a safe bet you'll lose and so same as before there is little stress. But at a 50:50 split, the outcome is at its least predictable and more than ever,, each little bit of work is likely to count. Thus why these odds are what these neurons respond best to -- the ratio is like a cue to your brain to pay attention and focus when it'll make the most difference.
(This is also thus why a huge number of video games, apps, card games, slot machines etc are focused on maximizing this perceived 1:1 risk.)
OK but back to IV though... What does this have to do it? Everything actually. The reason is that IV is unique on yet another front - - on top of everything else, IV also requires the highest degree of skill of any ROA (save one of the crazier, more obscure ROAs such as intracerebroventricular or intrathecal) and more, it's the easiest of them to mess up by a long shot.
If I handed any one of you a syringe and told you to hit a vein, even if I happened to pick someone with skills and experience relevant here, there would still be a fair chance (~20-30%) they'd mess up and miss some of the shot, a higher chance (~30-60%) that they'd make at least 1 or 2 other more minor mistakes
Without skills and experience, your chances of hitting the vein on the first try would plummet from ~70% to 5~20%, depending on the vein in question.
For a beginner, you're almost bound to fail at IV, again and again and again and again and several more times before getting it right even once, and then it might require hundreds more shots before you've had enough practice so that u actually hit the vein on the 1st try even half of the time...
Frankly I've had near a decade of practice, and I've taken formal courses on phlebotomy, yet I still mess up at least 5-15% of shots ls to some extent, though Iat least rarely fail to get it in at some point...
But u get the point. More than anything, IV is freakin' HARD right? It's like going from just swallowing a pill to performing a whole mini operation on yourself, one handed at that.
So you can see now, how this is ostensibly the last and one of the most important pieces of the puzzle. This is where that extra dopamine rush comes from, the simple fact that your chances of actually hitting the vein are incredibly less secured than when hitting a pipe or snorting a line.
This means that IV in effect becomes a game within a drug administration routine, and this "game" is the source of the extra addictive pull.
So in essence it works almost like a slot machine in that you can take shot after shot, every few hours, and each time you might utterly fail, the needle getting clogged with blood, or maybe you do 5 sticks in a row without getting blood, maybe you literally spend an hour trying to get it in and can't and finally give up (done thus, an intensely frustrating experience).... OR!!! You MIGHT hit the jackpot with a FLAWLESS first stick that flashes blood without so much as a needle readjustment, followed by not a drop of solution wasted anywhere but in the vein, and not only that, as extra reward for achieving this momentous task, you'll get a super strong rush to boot.
Now, I think once you take this into consideration, it becomes way more clear why it actually is that IV has so much more addictive pull than other ROAs.
Plez lmk your thoughts. Thanks for reading.

“Hello, Jews out there! Your boy is here!”: Quotes and Stories from “Loose Balls: The Short, Wild Life of the American Basketball Association” (Non Hall of Famers Edition)

Over the weekend, I really engrossed myself in Terry Pluto’s fantastic book “Loose Balls: The Short, Wild Life of the American Basketball Association”. There were so many good stories that I decided to keep a document and share with y’all! First up is the Non-Hall-of-Fame Player section, hope y’all enjoy! (If you’re skimming for Marvin Barnes stories, I decided he deserved his own post.)

Charlie Williams (ABA guard)

It was an adventure every night. I was with Pittsburgh, and our first exhibition game was against the New Jersey Americans. New Jersey’s uniforms never showed up and they played in white T-shirts with numbers written on the back in Magic Marker. They also wore shorts or sweat pants that didn’t match. Never in my life was I so grateful to have my own uniform.
Later, we played a game in New Orleans that was held up for a half hour because something happened to the electricity. (A possum got into the wiring.)

Les Selvage (Anaheim Amigos guard)

But Les Selvage was a legend in the first year of the ABA. He was a 6-foot-3 guard who was in love with the 3-point line. He acted like if he stepped over it, he was going to get killed or something. He didn’t just shoot 25-footers—he took 30-footers. I am not exaggerating. And he did it at any time in the game. He’d be on the wing on a fast break, stop a good step behind the 3-point line and cut loose. And the guy had strong arms and wrists—he didn’t take a set shot from 30 feet, he took a normal jumper.
During the ABA’s first season, Selvage fired away from 3-point range 461 times, not just more than any other ABA player but more than any other ABA team but Pittsburgh.[...] After the first third of the season, Selvage was shooting much better from 3-point range (42 percent) than on 2-pointers (32 percent).

Art Heyman (ABA forward)

After that game, a crazy thing happened with Art Heyman. This fan had spit on Art and he punched the guy. Art was in our locker room changing his clothes when the New Orleans police came in and arrested him. We were all staring at Art, wondering how could this guy get in trouble with the cops in the middle of a championship playoff. It turned out that the fan had some sort of physical problem and he didn’t intentionally spit on Art, and when Art decked him a complaint was filed. Art apologized and patched things up, so the charges were dropped.

One of the owners decided to trade for Art Heyman from Pittsburgh without telling anyone else. Heyman showed up in Miami without half the people in the front office knowing he was coming. Bob Halloran from TV-4 in Miami spotted Heyman and interviewed him. Heyman asked Bob, “Does this go out to Miami Beach?” Bob said it did.
Heyman said, “Hello, Jews out there! Your boy is here!”

Larry Brown (ABA player and coach)

When you went on the road, your trainer didn’t go with you. So when you got to a place like Denver, it was up to Denver to supply a trainer you could use that night. In Denver, the trainer they gave us taped my ankle so tight that it ended up bleeding. I went into the shower and cut the tape off and I saw other guys doing the same thing. So I went up to the trainer and asked him what he did in real life—I couldn’t imagine that he did this for a living. The guy hesitated for a moment and said, “Well, I’m a poultry farmer.”

Doug and I flew to New Orleans to meet with somebody about a contract. We expected to go into an office building with a big marquee that said, “New Orleans Buccaneers,” but it was just a regular office building, no sign about the basketball team.
We were led into an office and there was Morton Downey, or Sean Downey Jr. as he was known back then. He had one of those signs on his desk that you can flip over. On one side it said, “American Can Corp., Vice President of Sales.” But when he saw us in the office, he flipped it to the side that said, “Sean Downey Jr., President New Orleans Buccaneers.”

Most ABA coaches were into leisure suits with ridiculous shirts and those collars you could land an airplane on. Larry liked to wear Oshkosh B’Gosh farmer’s overalls. Once in a while, he’d wear leather pants.

Bob Netolicky (Pacers forward)

Ability was only one of the reasons we won. The rest was character. We didn’t have all the white guys hanging out in one place and the black guys in another. We didn’t have guys always whining about money, guys playing out their options and jumping to other teams or even to the other league. 􀀺e didn’t have a coach who sat in the ivory tower and wouldn’t associate with the players. If you wanted to find Slick on the road, you just went to the hotel bar and there he was. He’d sit there, buy you a few drinks and if you and he got blasted once in a while, then you got blasted. It was no big deal.
In Indiana, basketball almost comes before church and family. You see more rims and basketball goals hanging up in some towns than there are people. When I signed with the Pacers back when they were just forming the ABA, (Pacer legal counsel) Dick Tinkham told me, “If you guys win, you’ll be like gods in Indianapolis. This still is a small town. These people have been waiting for something like you guys to come along.”

Neto established himself as a character even before he joined the Pacers, when he flew his own plane to town to sign his contract. He always had exotic pets. He had a wildcat, and the damn thing got out of his house and was running all over his neighborhood. It was on the radio and everything. The police were looking for Neto’s wildcat.

After McGinnis joined the team, you had a big five who hung out together—Brown, Daniels, Neto, Lewis and George. There was a trip to Dallas where we had a break in the schedule and were there for three days. I never saw those guys except at practice. Then I had to go to Neto’s room, and these guys had a three-day card game going. They loved Kentucky Fried Chicken and that was all they ate for three days—I could tell because all the boxes were piled in one corner and Neto’s clothes were in the other corner of the room.

Reggie Harding (Pacers center)

We contacted Reggie and we were supposed to meet him at the Indianapolis airport at 5 A.M. Dick Tinkham and I were waiting for him and when he got off the plane, Reggie was wearing a long black coat that was about six sizes too small. He had a pair of tennis shoes slung over his shoulder, tied together by the laces. Tinkham and I were sitting there in our coats and ties, all proper, and Reggie was looking like a guy who just got out of jail.

Rayl told me, “It was midnight and I was in bed and the lights were out. I heard Reggie come in and I heard him going around the room. It was still dark. Then I heard him close to me. He turned on the light and there was Reggie standing by my bed, holding a gun to my head. He said, ’Tweetie Bird, I hear you hate n*****s.’ ”
Rayl said he didn’t and he kept talking to Reggie and finally got Reggie to hand over the gun. When Reggie did, Rayl took all of the bullets out of the gun and said, “Reggie, let’s go to bed now. We’ve got a game tomorrow.”
Rayl turned out the lights and then he heard Reggie getting up and moving around the room. Rayl turned the lights back on and there was Reggie, again pointing the gun at Rayl. Reggie said, “You didn’t think I only had six shells, did you?”
Rayl grabbed some clothes, walked out of the room and spent the rest of the night sitting up in the hotel lobby.

Dave Twardzik (Virginia Squires guard)

When a player like [Rick] Mount becomes a pro, he discovers that he is put on a pedestal, just as he was in college, but the fans don’t understand the difference between college and pro ball. Some guys are just destined to be great college players but ordinary pros, and Mount was one of them. But the fans who love the player so much have a tough time dealing with his failure. Instead of saying, “Well, he just reached his level,” they blame the coach for not playing him more or using him right. Or they say the other guys on the team are jealous of him. That goes on for a while, then the fans begin to realize—our college star just isn’t that good. That’s when they turn on the player and it can be ugly. I’ve seen guys in that situation get crucified by the fans.

Willie Wise (Utah Stars forward)

A lot of people thought Willie was strange, and I think that was why he wasn’t drafted higher. He was with Drake during the 1969 Final Four and he said that he really didn’t want to play pro basketball, he wanted to drive a truck for a living. He was a reborn Seventh-Day Adventist and people thought he might not play pro ball because of his religious convictions. I roomed with him on the road for one trip. He would turn the heat up to 85, 90 degrees for a few hours, then he’d open all the windows. I don’t know why he did it, but we’d joke that he was having hot flashes like a lady in menopause. A year later, when the team moved to Utah, Willie bought a motorcycle, which was considered a big deal and very antiestablishment back then.

John Brisker (ABA forward)

The legendary Brisker story was that in one of its training camps, Pittsburgh brought in an ex-football player who was supposed to control Brisker. The football player was supposed to get into a scrimmage with Brisker and the first time Brisker stepped out of line, the football player was supposed to flatten him. Well, the two guys started going at it. Then the football player said, “The hell with you, I’m gonna get my gun.” And Brisker said, “If you’re getting a gun, then I’m gonna get my gun.” Then the two guys ran off the court in different directions, presumably to get their guns. The coaches took one look at all that and called off practice before someone really did get killed.

One time I was officiating a Pittsburgh game and Brisker was late coming onto the floor for the second half. Turned out that he had a fight in the dressing room with one of his own players.

From that point on, there was a $500 bounty on Brisker’s head. If he ever started up talking or shoving somebody, the first player on my team to deck him would get $500. We never had any more trouble with Brisker.

Warren Jabali (ABA forward)

We were in the dressing room once and we had a black rookie on our team, I can’t remember the kid’s name. Anyway, Warren noticed that the kid was wearing cotton underwear. Jabali reached over and literally ripped the shorts right off the kid. Warren said, “Don’t you know that our ancestors had to pick this cotton? Get yourself some slick drawers.”

[In 1968-1969] Oakland’s Warren Jabali was suspended for 15 days and fined $250 for stomping the Stars’ Jim Jarvis in the face.

A week later, we were playing Jabali’s team and he was shoving our guys around. He pushed Neil Johnson and Neil went down. He sat on the floor staring at Jabali. Then Neil got up and walked over to Jabali and belted him. I mean, boom, Jabali went down like a tree. He just coldcocked Jabali. It wasn’t a suckerpunch because Jabali had to see it coming. Then Johnson stood over him and screamed, “Get up, you son-of-a-bitching racist, so I can really kick your ass.”

In the [1972-1973] All-Star Game, the West beat the East 123-111 in Salt Lake before 12,556. The players on the winning team received $500 each, the losers received $300. Warren Jabali was the MVP as he scored all 16 of his points in the second half. Jabali won a free airline ticket to anywhere in Europe, but the Muslim forward said, “I want to go to Africa instead. If they won’t send me to Africa, I want the money instead of the ticket. Why should I go to Europe? I don’t know anyone there”

Johnny Neumann (ABA guard)

One of his favorite phrases was, “Paper (cash) means nothing to me.” He bought a sports car in Indianapolis while the Memphis team was in town for a night game, then had to find someone to drive the car home. He said things such as, “To be honest, I was the biggest thing to ever come out of Memphis other than Elvis.”

I had Johnny in his second year and he owned seven cars. He also had a stock car with his name on it. He had blown nearly all of his money. Charlie Finley and I worked with him and got him down to three cars by the end of the season.

The legendary Johnny Neumann story was that one night he was sitting on the bench and the coach called his name. Neumann stood up, tore off his warm-up pants, and all he was wearing underneath was his jockstrap.

The guy was the best practice passer I’ve ever seen. He really could see the floor and make the right pass to the right guy at the right time. It was amazing how well he handled the ball in our practices in Virginia. Then the striped shirts and whistles would come out and forget it —Johnny had tunnel vision on the court.

He was going through a divorce and he had this girlfriend in Salt Lake City. He was continually flying out to see her; that was his champagne taste. So he was going through a lot of money between the divorce and the trips to Salt Lake. His wife in Memphis was going to keep his Jaguar and the house in Memphis, so Johnny needed some cash. One day he walked into the dressing room and was sort of auctioning off the Ferrari and Harley, seeing what anybody on the team might be willing to pay.

Doug Moe (ABA player and coach)

One of the biggest disappointments in my life was going into the NBA after the merger. The NBA was a rinky-dink league—listen, I’m very serious about this. The league was run like garbage. There was no camaraderie; a lot of the NBA guys were aloof and thought they were too good to practice or play hard. The NBA All-Star Games were nothing— guys didn’t even want to play in them and the fans could care less about the games. It wasn’t until the 1980s, when David Stern became commissioner, that the NBA figured out what the hell they were doing, and what they did was a lot of the stuff we had in the ABA—from the 3-point shot to All-Star weekend to the show biz stuff. Now the NBA is like the old ABA. Guys play hard, they show their enthusiasm and there is a closeness in the league. Hell, the ABA might have lost the battle, but we won the war. The NBA now plays our kind of basketball.

When Doug Moe first came into the league, he wore a white T-shirt, jeans and tennis shoes everywhere. When Doug became a coach, the only change was that sometimes he wore a different color Tshirt.

Wendell Ladner (ABA forward)

Wendell was forever diving for loose balls and he chased one down in front of our bench. He went after it headfirst and came smack down into the water cooler, a glass water cooler, and he had to get 100-some stitches. The thing was that Wendell wanted to come back and play in the second half.

Once we were flying into Washington, D.C., and from the window of the plane, Wendell looked out, saw the Washington Monument and said, “I bet that’s the Washington Post.”

Ladner was running after someone and he ran right out of his shoe. Freddie Lewis was dribbling the ball away from Wendell, who was hobbling around in one shoe. Wendell was so frustrated that he threw his shoe right at Lewis, hitting Freddie in the back. Freddie was a little guy, but he was a fighter and his initial instinct was to take a swing at whoever had hit him with the shoe. But when he turned and saw it was Wendell, he just smiled.

Fly Williams (Spirits of St. Louis forward)

Fly was a legend long before he got to St. Louis. The story that went around with the Fly, and I always thought it had to be apocryphal but it still makes the point, was that when Fly was recruited by Austin Peay, he got on a plane in New York and flew to Austin, Texas. That was where he figured Austin Peay had to be. When he got off the plane, he said to the first guy he saw, “Hey, where’s The Peay, man?” Heaven only knows what the man thought Fly was asking. Anyway, Fly then called his coach and said he was in Austin, Texas, and “There’s no Peay here, man.” The coach was telling him that Austin Peay was in Clarksville, Tennessee, and he started routing him from Austin to Clarksville. Fly became confused and said, “No, man, I’m going home.” Then he flew to New York and called the coach from LaGuardia Airport, and from there he flew to Clarksville.

Fly did things in college such as dribbling the ball off the court during a game to get a drink from a fountain in that old gym of theirs.

In our first game, Fly Williams had a wide-open layup. He was going 100 miles per hour on a breakaway. All he had to do was just lay the ball over the rim or dunk it. Instead, he went for a 360-degree layup. He turned himself completely around and nearly spun himself into the floor and threw the ball right over the rim and the backboard.

The famous Fly Williams story was that Fly had no teeth and Harry Weltman wanted to send Fly to the dentist. The team would pay for everything. The dentist told Fly what he needed to do and pulled out a big needle for a Novocain shot. Fly took one look at that needle and he was out of the chair and ran out of the dentist’s office. The dentist called Harry and told him what happened. Then Harry called Fly and said, “What’s going on? You’ve got to have some teeth.” Fly was always so skinny, and part of the reason was that he didn’t eat right as a kid, and when he got older he couldn’t eat right because of his missing teeth. But all Fly would say was, “Man, I wouldn’t be the Fly if I had teeth.”

Maurice Lucas (Spirits of St. Louis power forward)

Early in his rookie year, he was coming off the bench. One night the Spirits were playing Kentucky in Freedom Hall and Lucas was trading elbows with Artis Gilmore. At 7-foot-2 and 240 pounds, Gilmore just towered over Maurice. Lucas’s only chance was to beat Gilmore to a spot on the floor and then try to hold off Artis. Despite his enormous size and strength, Gilmore was never known as a ferocious player and he seldom was in a fight. But all of a sudden, Artis just got sick of Lucas’s bodying him and you could see that the big guy was really hot. Gilmore took a swipe at Lucas and missed. Lucas put up his fists, but he was backpedaling like any sane man would when confronted by Gilmore. It started at the foul line, and Lucas was backing up toward the corner. It was almost slow motion— Gilmore would take a step, then Lucas would take a step back. It was obvious that Lucas didn’t want to fight and was trying to figure out where he could go. Finally, he was trapped in the corner; he had run out of court. He didn’t know what else to do, so he planted his feet and threw this tremendous punch at Gilmore, and it caught Artis square on the jaw. It was a frightening sight. Artis hit the deck. Lucas was going crazy. Now he really did want a piece of Artis. Guys were holding Lucas back and Artis was still down. For whatever reason, from that point on Lucas developed into a helluva player.

Dave Robisch (ABA forward)

When Baltimore folded, a dispersal draft was held for the players and I was taken by San Diego, where Bill Musselman had just been named coach. I went to San Diego and played 11 games. We weren’t drawing well, but I figured the team would make the season. I guess I just didn’t think I could be with two teams that folded in one year. I picked out a condominium and moved my family out there. This is the honest truth: the day the moving van arrived with our stuff, the Sails announced that they had folded. I told the guys just to keep the stuff on the truck and I’d tell them where to take it in a few days. There was another dispersal draft, and this time I went to Indiana. I called the movers and sent them to Indianapolis.

David Vaughn (Virginia Squires center)

Virginia Squires center David Vaughn was shot by a Chesapeake policewoman after a high-speed chase. It began when Vaughn filled up his rented Mark IV at a Shell station in Great Bridge, Virginia, then pulled away without paying for $14 worth of gasoline. Three police cars ended up chasing Vaughn, who refused to pull over. Police said that the upper part of Vaughn’s body could be seen through the sunroof during much of the chase. During the chase, Vaughn rammed into three police cars and the automobile of a woman. When police finally blocked Vaughn’s car, there was a struggle to get him out, and in the process Vaughn was shot by a policewoman who had been on the force for only a month. Vaughn was charged with four counts of “attempted murder with an automobile,” one charge of felonious hit-and-run and reckless driving. The day before this incident, he was arrested for indecent exposure in Virginia Beach while walking outside his home wearing only a T-shirt. Vaughn told arresting officers, “God is naked, too.”

Rich Jones (ABA forward)

Rich Jones’s nickname was “House,” and he had had some financial problems when he played for the Spurs. When he came back to San Antonio for the playoffs, someone had leaked word of House’s troubles to the local press and it ended up in the newspapers. House saw the stories and was so distraught that he wouldn’t even leave his hotel room.

Others

[In 1967-1968] Denver’s Larry Jones became the first ABA player to score 50 points in a game (52, to be exact) as he shot 20-for-28 against Oakland. The prior ABA scoring record was 49, held by Levern Tart. Asked why he had such a hot night, Jones first said he was lucky, then credited eating oatmeal for breakfast.
ABA PR Director Lee Meade created the Bialosuknia Line. Oakland’s Wes Bialosuknia had the longest last name in the league—11 letters. So Meade made the league stats sheets long enough to accommodate players with 11-letter last names.

EVO 2019 Megathread - Everything You Need to Know

Introduction

Hey everyone and welcome to the latest entry for my annual EVO megathread series. It's almost that time once again! In just a few days we'll dive into a weekend full of some of the fiercest fighting game competition in the world, as players from the entire globe will gather in Las Vegas to crown the next 9 champions for each of the titles present at this year's event.
What is this "EVO" you're talking about?, you may ask, and the answer is quite simple:
EVO (or Evolution Championship Series) is the single biggest fighting game tournament in the world, which hosts thousands of players and all kinds of other notable community members, and dozens of various fighting games, in one place, every year, dating back to as far as late 90's. What started out as a rather small event on the United States' West Coast kept continuously growing year after year, eventually establishing the EVO brand in 2002, and is now the most prestigious tournament and is truly a one-of-a-kind spectacle. This is where you will see the best of the best competitors, some of the hypest matches, intense moments, blowups, salt, tears, laughs, and of course a lineup of genre-related announcements that will blow your mind.
On top of that, this EVO is also a part of several eSports tournament circuits - Capcom Pro Tour, Tekken World Tour, Dragon Ball FighterZ World Tour, Mortal Kombat Pro Kompetition, and ArcRevo World Tour (each having a title in the main lineup), which makes EVO that much more appealing and tougher to compete in, since there are a lot of tournament leaderboard points on the line for several games, and it could very well further decide the finals lineup for each circuit.
EVO 2019 will be taking place from August 2nd through August 4th in the Mandalay Bay Convention Center, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
Now, with that short introductory part out of the way - let's proceed to the juicy stuff and what you're in this thread for in the first place. Sidenote: for this year's EVO I have decided to overhault the thread's layout to try and declutter it as much as possible, since the previous ones were just too damn long and had a lot of unnecessary scrolling. I hope you guys will like it.
Anyways, without further ado... Here is everything you need to know about EVO 2019

Cuck Political Report - February 2020 Federals

Good evening, and welcome to the highlight of this and every election season except last states, the Cuck Political Report! As usual, the Cuck Report will be comprised of anonymous party officials from all three parties. Yes, I said anonymous - that way you can't yell at them when their takes are bad. Unfortunately for me, when I mess up the formatting, it's obvious who did it. Don't yell at me
Let's do this thing!

NATIONAL OVERVIEW

Party House Senate
Democrats Likely Coalition Toss-Up
Socialist Likely Coalition Tilt Coalition
Republican Likely Coalition Lean GOP

BY DISTRICT

Race Democratic Analysis Socialist Analysis Republican Analysis
AC-Sen What started as a close race quickly turned into a Socialist landslide as the Independent candidate dropped out, and the Republican one ceased campaigning. Safe Soc Based on initial polling, this one had the makings of an epic dog fight of a race. 3 candidates all within striking distance, a surprising new candidate emerging from the Socialist primaries, and ideological diversity. Sadly, this thing fizzled out in short order. BirackObama officially dropped out at the midpoint, ZanyDraco unofficially dropped out at the midpoint, and JellyCow eliminated all of the suspense with a 10 event to 0 lead in the final days of the campaign. Although drama and suspense can be fun, the Socs are happy to win this one pulling away. Just watch out for BirackObama suing for a recount or just because lawsuits are their hobby. Safe Soc While Republican candidate ZanyDraco started off with a lead, his lead was gradually cut down by Jellycow99. With Carib dropping out in the second half and ZanyDraco effectively suspending his campaign, we can expect this seat to be. Safe Soc
AC-1 The Atlantic House races all stayed very sleepy this election, and this race will be no exception. Safe Soc Big wins are going to be the theme of the election in Atlantic. KayAyTeeEe put in the work, Kbelica did not. The first-term Congresswoman will graduate from a list seat to a constituency for her second term in the house with a win here. Safe Soc There’s not much to note here. Kbelica started off with a lead, but didn’t campaign, making this race a Socialist pickup. Safe Soc
AC-2 This race never really got going, to the delight of the Socialists no doubt. PGF is heavily favoured to win here, making this a Safe Soc seat. Same story, different candidates. Personally, I’m not even convinced FZVIC exists. PGF ran a good campaign to win this seat, and I hope that’s enough to take some of the sting out of losing the Socialist primary for Senate. Safe Soc Much like the AC-1 house race, FZVIC didn’t show up at all to the campaign. Safe Soc
AC-3 Another uncompetitive race, and with neither candidate showing up, this will be a Safe Dem seat. Another big win. What sets this race apart is the fact that neither candidate did anything at all! With this one decided for OptimizedUmbrella, you can mark Atlantic as a coalition sweep. Safe Dem Neither party showed up to the campaign, but OptimizedUmbrella was able to rely upon his strong incumbency to carry him over his opponent. This is the 3rd race that the GOP will lose in AC, by a landslide. While we can’t be sure of the reason for it, we can be sure that the AC GOP’s leadership is in hot water. Safe Dem
CH-Sen The GOP started with an edge here, but Cold worked hard and the race is now a statistical tie. The debates were lively, but it’s likely that the deciding factor will be the Socialist party events. The coalition was able to use 10 events in CH, while the GOP only had 5, and it seems like the GOP bet big on the Senate special election, not this seat. Advantage, Socialists, but only just. Lean Soc Unlike Atlantic, Chesapeake is going to have some tight races, starting with this one. Cold Brew Coffee started with a significant disadvantage in the polls, but was able to close the gap a bit in the early going. Given the MOE of those polls, it’s safe to call this race neck and neck. The two candidates took vastly different approaches: Flam thought that dry walls of text preaching the anti-government gospel of a lady who spent her later years living off of government welfare programs would win the day, and Cold went a more creative direction. Chesapeake went Socialist for statewide office in these past state elections, will they do it again? Toss-up Going into this race, it looked to be an extremely hard fought one, but when the 2 candidates actually started campaigning it was clear who was going to win. Flam ran a tough campaign while Cold appeared to want to throw the race. LIkely GOP
CH-Sen (Special) Another dead-heat Senate race in an election full of them. It feels like Senate control could go either way this year, with both sides potentially staring at a super-majority, or a small minority. Ninjja fought hard, but P17r did enough to keep the race competitive. Ninjja has a slight endge on event quantity and quality, but it’s anyone's guess who will win here. Toss-up Another tight race. Ninjja and PP are the two most likely successors to Governor HSCTiger09, regardless of whether the rumors of his early retirement are true or not, so this is possibly a preview of another future statewide race. Polling suggests Ninjja closed the gap a bit on PP, but with the MOE, who knows where this thing really stands? Given the apparent momentum from the early rounds and the extra event for Ninjja, I predict Ninjja will karate kick PP back to the Lt. Gov’s cabin. Tilt Dem From polling, it was clear this was going to be an extremely close race and the campaigns went blow for blow. At the end of the day, Ninjja will likely come on top because of an advantage in events. Tilt Dem
CH-1 The GOP appears to have wrapped this one up handily. No contest. Safe GOP The only non-competitive race in Chesapeake, this one is an easy call. ColdSoak was left out in the cold and rain and unable to close the gap on Polkadot, but if the Socs could pick a Republican to lose to, the pleasant, moderate Polkadot would be toward the top of the list. Safe GOP Rising Republican, Polkadot will easily be taking her seat. She maintained the large lead from the start and gave her opponent no chances to make up the deficit. Safe GOP
CH-2 Ecr01 had a slight advantage in the polling here, and also seems to have pushed out a few more events. This will be a close close race, but the Dems have good reason to be hopeful. Lean Dem Early polls showed the Republican with a slight lead, and, following a pattern in these elections, quickly watching that lead evaporate. After looking at events, it’s not hard to see why. Erc01 out-campaigned frostbite every step of the way, somehow outperforming frostbite’s “write a single paragraph” strategy to swing the polls 8 points at the halfway mark, and completed an extra event. Ecr01 should come out with a well-deserved win. Likely Dem Considered to be one of the closest races this cycle, Ecr01 and Frostbite both ran great campaigns, but generally better planning on Ecr01’s end and a strong rally game makes this race. Lean Dem
CH-3 DuceGiharm did very well to drag their campaign into the ‘competitive’ column. The GOP are probably still fairly optimistic, but this race could go either way. **Toss-Up The third tight race in Chesapeake. Duce de Zoop was a surprise entrant into the Chesapeake contest after being best known in Atlantic politics. There was obviously some concern about carpetbagging in the early polls as Assemblyperson Mincoder held a lead that looked pretty safe at 59-41. Through some combination of MOE swing and outstanding campaigning, Duce de Zoop closed the gap in a hurry to 52-48 at the midpoint. Duce’s engaging personality and passionate style of politics should win the day against an opponent whose speeches seem to be as much about convincing herself as they are about convincing voters. Tilt Soc In another race that was extremely close, we had political newcomer and Chesapeake Assemblyman Mincoder against Duce. Although gains were made by Duce making the race even closer, Milaw remained a solid campaigner and will likely hold on to that lead. Tilt GOP
DX-Sen Probably the best race this election. The debate alone was excellent TV. This is going to be another case of quantity vs. quality. No way to pick a winner here, this is a Toss-Up This is one of those races that the entire country has been watching. Incumbent Senator DextorAamo is an absolute villain. Transphobia on the floor of the Senate, a basic opposition to civil rights, and a general distaste for anything that might benefit someone who’s not already a wealthy elite are among the many factors that would make him a laughably cartoonish villain if he weren’t actually a Senator. BananaRepublic poured his heart and soul into the race, closed a 1 point gap by the midpoint to draw even, and then sunk 5 more events into the contest than Dexter. Unless the MOE has been making this thing look closer than it actually is, Banana should win and we should probably pronounce him an American hero for service to country. Tilt Soc Incumbent Senator DexterAamo ran a strong campaign, but the lack of variety in his events plus the fact that he was out-campaigned by BananaRepublic in the last half would make this race lean Socialist, but DexterAamo had far better campaign event placement, making this race a Toss-Up
DX-1 An easy win for the Dems and the coalition here. Rachel did more than enough during the first half to put the rave beyond any real doubt, and her opponent seems to have realized that. Safe Dem Rachel Fischer angled for the win here and landed a 17-point lead, and Maiq apparently did not know much about there being an election to work on. Safe Dem In this race, incumbent Republican representative MaiqKnowsMuch faced off against Lt. Gov Rachel_Fischer. Due to his appointment to a cabinet seat, Maiq abandoned the Dixie GOP, leaving them vulnerable in the most winnable Dixie House race. Rachel_Fischer campaigned hard in his absence, making this race Safe Dem
DX-2 Another race that appeared over before it could really get going. Conquistador5134 has this one in the bag. Safe Soc The Aztecs put up more of a fight than meme-sargent. The Republican started with a 10 point lead and put up a feeble effort with 3 events to Conquistador’s 9. Conquistador cruises to victory and is now searching for cities of gold somewhere just outside of Atlanta. Safe Soc In this race, newcomer politician meme-sargent faced another newcomer politician, Conquistador5134. What could have been a perfectly winnable seat for the DX GOP is shaping out to be a Socialist landslide after Conquistador heavily out-campaigned meme-sargent for the seat. Safe Soc
DX-3 Poopsock put up a valiant fight to keep the race somewhat competitive, but it seems like Presentsale did enough to seal the win. Also, Poopsock? Were all the other reddit usernames taken? Likely Dem PresentSale has as good of an opportunity to win a race here as he ever has. Poopsockdeck ran hard, but PresentSale’s activity level in the term and competent campaigning should hold firm. Likely Dem In what was overall the most competitive race in Dixie this election, newcomer poopsockdeck faced off against PresentSale, the perennial agitator and thorn in the GOP’s side. Somehow, poopsockdeck managed to hold his own against PresentSale in the polls and during campaigning. Although he will not win, he will have enough of an impact to make this the closest race in Dixie. Safe Dem
DX-4 No real question here, Speaker APG will comfortably win his seat, and round off what will likely be a shut-out of the GOP from Dixies House seats. And maybe from Dixie completely. Safe Dem APG barely campaigned and will still cruise to re-election. Safe Dem There’s not much to note here: incumbent Speaker APG faced off against a newcomer and thrashed him. In fact, his opponent didn’t bother showing up at all. Safe Dem.
LN-Sen This will be one of the closest Senate races this cycle, no other way to look at it. Both candidates were very active in the debates, and the race was essentially tied going into cycle 2. DDYT ‘s events were their usually high standard, but Jgm managed to get 4 party bonus events, while the GOP had none. This race will be decided by quality vs. quantity. Toss-Up I was really impressed with DDYT’s campaign. He released a PragerU video with an anime girl who, I think, had something in her eye, an anime opening which was historic for probably being the first time Barry Goldwater’s face was in an anime video, some kind of scaremongering video with tanks and shit, etc. While I like JGM a lot, their campaign was just not as creative and inspired. I might hope that JGM pulls it out, but I think he gets clipped at the finish line by DDYT in a close race. Tilt GOP In this race, incumbent Senator DDYT faced off against fresh-faced politician jgm2208. While jgm started off with a lead due to Senator DDYT’s relatively lazy term, DDYT vastly beat out jgm in terms of his event quality and debates. Ultimately, however, jgm had more events and this will likely swing the race in his favour. Still, we’re holding out for another DDYT miracle. Toss-Up/Tilt Dem
LN-1 This race was over by the second polls. Safe GOP G’night ConfidentIT. Former Libertarian gknight4 violated the non-aggression principle and beat down ConfindentIT. Safe GOP Gknight4, former Libertarian, squared up to Confidentlt. What commenced was an absolute pounding of Confidentlt as he barely even showed up to campaign. It feels good to be able to say this in a wipeout election for the Republicans. Safe GOP
LN-2 Skiboy625 appears to have done enough to seal this race. Both candidates worked hard going into the final hours, but it likely won’t be enough to see a GOP comeback. Lean Dem Skiboy had more events, slid out to an early lead, and it was all downhill from there. Elleeit will be taking the Ell here. Likely Dem Former Lt. Governor Elleeit fought against Skiboy365 in this hum-drum election. While Elleeit should have had a leg up, some lacklustre campaigning on his part and active opposition from Skiboy makes this race Safe Dem
LN-3 Gormanbros would probably have liked a slightly larger lead at the half, but he and Greylat were neck and neck on events to the very end. It’ll be a close race, but the Dem is definitely the slight favorite. Lean Dem I don’t know much about these two and there’s no puntential in their names so just know Gormanbros will hold his seat. Likely Dem In this race, newcomer greylat faced off against the Democrat incumbent, GormanBros. While the race was entirely winnable during the early stages of the campaign, GormanBros out-campaigned greylat, running on the strength of his incumbency. This race is Safe Dem
LN-4 There’s a lot to say about this race. It looked like the GOP had wrapped it up with a very large lead, and that Top was finished. And it appears that something like a concession was communicated from Top to 0emanresUsername0. But instead Top went all out at the very end, possibly catching his opponent off guard. While a fairly despicable tactic, the question is, did it sadly work? Maybe. The GOP still has reason to be optimistic. Lean GOP Too little too late for TopProspect. Manres wins Likely GOP Native Linconian Manres K Malone faced off against TopProspect17, also a native Linconian who carpetbagged to Atlantic and back. Manres started off with a huge lead and kept it alive throughout the first half of campaigning. Although prospect managed to out-campaign Manres in the second half, we suspect that it won’t be enough to overcome the 26 point deficit between them. This race is Likely GOP
SR-Sen Probably one of the best races this election cycle. Two very talented candidates, with the full weight of their parties behind them. Hurricanes lead was razor thin going into Cycle 2, and with little to separate them in terms of bonus events, candidate events, and the debate, this is the very definition of a **Toss-Up race. I feel like a meteorologist discussing this race. Event placement is interesting here, with 9 Hurricane events in SR-2 to Sun’s 6, but Sun getting a 2 event advantage in SR-1 and 1 event advantage in SR-3. Depending on the outcome, the narrative will be either Hurricane learning from his mistakes in the Presidential race or Hurricane committing the same kinds of mistakes as in his Presidential race. Sun closed a small gap early, giving us only a 51% chance of a Hurricane on the west coast. Sun’s events were strong, slightly stronger than Hurricane’s in my opinion, and that might make Hurricane’s chances blow out to sea. Regardless, this race heated up down the stretch, and a Prog win coupled with a poor result in Chesapeake or Lincoln could make for a dark and stormy night for the coalition. Toss-Up Well, would you look at that? It’s mister I_hate_Israel himself running against Hurricaneoflies. Senator Hurricane started off with a narrow lead and ProgrammaticallySun7 narrowed it in the first half, but Hurricane’s stronger campaigning is liable to carry him over. Normally, this would be LEAN DEM, but there is another factor: ProgrammaticallySun7 had more logical campaign event placement and this may severely affect the outcome. Still, we’re calling this race Tilt Dem
SR-1 Polling indicated that this should be a safe Dem seat, but Hyp3r missing the debate definitely made this one a bit more interesting. Still though, Hyp3r has almost certainly done enough to bring it home. Likely Dem What a weird race. The polls were initially tied, then the Democrat jumped to a 67-33 lead after both campaigns posted a single event. Inexplicably, however, only the Republican debated. Finally, both campaigns posted just a single event in the homestretch. I don’t understand the midpoint polls, or exactly to what extent the failure to debate will hurt hyp3rdriv3, so let’s just call this a Toss-Up Republican candidate Temmie134 ran against hyp3rdriv3 in a historically Republican district. The race was largely inactive with both sides making a minimal amount of appearances. Although hyp3rdriv3 did not debate, he did get the jump on temmie during campaigning. As such, we're calling this race Likely Dem
SR-2 This race looked like it might become competitive, but an absent debate, and not enough events will likely seal this for the GOP, as much as we'd like to see Comped denied another position. Safe GOP Check your brain if you think Comped is losing. Comped has channeled his anger at getting snubbed for the court into winning this seat. The Democrat checked out after round 1. Likely GOP The race seemed to be an easy victory for Republicans at first, but by the time a 2nd round of polls came Comped’s lead closed dramatically. Although many felt a “Brain Surge” was in the works, Comped lead a generally stronger campaign. We are calling this race Likely GOP
SR-3 This was another great race to watch, and both candidates managed to keep it close. While Crschube had a narrow lead going into Cycle 2, Sappleaf has done enough to push this race into Toss-Up territory. The Socs don’t do much in Sierra so I know next to nothing about either of these candidates. Crschube opened a lead at the midpoint, and I don’t see any reason why sapphleaf should be able to come back. Likely Dem With one of the fastest changing races in the country, we saw crschube completely flip initial polling estimates against Sapphleaf. The latter half of the campaign trail had Sapphleaf out campaigning crschube but this was likely not enough to overcome a 14 point deficit. Likely Dem
SR-4 Ahh, what a rematch this is. Unfortunately, the Democratic campaign never really got going, so we'll have to call it Safe GOP Clearly, clearlyinvisible did not care. No one saw them on the campaign trail. Bandic00t_ will crash through the finish line with probably the highest margin of victory of the night.Safe GOP Astro, who has been holding down SR-4 for multiple terms now, will be walking away with this race. He ran against an opponent who failed to show up and still made a campaign effort. Safe GOP
That's all folks! Enjoy the results later - and don't forget to thank your friendly neighborhood IAmATinMan for doing such a great job on his first elections.

[August 2nd-4th] EVO 2019 Megathread - Everything You Need to Know

Introduction

Hey everyone and welcome to the latest entry for my annual EVO megathread series. It's almost that time once again! In just a few days we'll dive into a weekend full of some of the fiercest fighting game competition in the world, as players from the entire globe will gather in Las Vegas to crown the next 9 champions for each of the titles present at this year's event.
What is this "EVO" you're talking about?, you may ask, and the answer is quite simple:
EVO (or Evolution Championship Series) is the single biggest fighting game tournament in the world, which hosts thousands of players and all kinds of other notable community members, and dozens of various fighting games, in one place, every year, dating back to as far as late 90's. What started out as a rather small event on the United States' West Coast kept continuously growing year after year, eventually establishing the EVO brand in 2002, and is now the most prestigious tournament and is truly a one-of-a-kind spectacle. This is where you will see the best of the best competitors, some of the hypest matches, intense moments, blowups, salt, tears, laughs, and of course a lineup of genre-related announcements that will blow your mind.
On top of that, this EVO is also a part of several eSports tournament circuits - Capcom Pro Tour, Tekken World Tour, Dragon Ball FighterZ World Tour, Mortal Kombat Pro Kompetition, and ArcRevo World Tour (each having a title in the main lineup), which makes EVO that much more appealing and tougher to compete in, since there are a lot of tournament leaderboard points on the line for several games, and it could very well further decide the finals lineup for each circuit.
EVO 2019 will be taking place from August 2nd through August 4th in the Mandalay Bay Convention Center, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
Now, with that short introductory part out of the way - let's proceed to the juicy stuff and what you're in this thread for in the first place. Sidenote: for this year's EVO I have decided to overhault the thread's layout to try and declutter it as much as possible, since the previous ones were just too damn long and had a lot of unnecessary scrolling. I hope you guys will like it.
Anyways, without further ado... Here is everything you need to know about EVO 2019
