Missing Flight 370
On March 13, 2018, a twitter user who went by the name strayedaway, or Ty, posted a thread about a creepy voicemail he received regarding the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. The thread went viral and many more people came out claiming to have received the same one.. This prompted people all over the internet to get involved and help solve the mystery. However, there was never a real conclusion, and after receiving an overwhelming amount of publicity and even death threats, Ty and many others linked to the thread deactivated their accounts. Many people claim the whole thing was an elaborate hoax or even an alternate reality game, but I am not satisfied with those answers. Ty’s thread and the bizarre disappearance of MH370 still linger in the back of my mind to this day.
https://www.news.com.au/technology/online/creepy-military-voicemail-warning-of-impending-doomsday-sends-internet-into-meltdown/news-story/afe34f8dce8d48a0269cd925838743e8
For those who are unaware, MH370 was an international flight that disappeared on March 8, 2014 while flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. The voicemail Ty received 4 years later was an SOS message thought to be recorded on the missing plane’s black box. Some said solar flares happening around that time may have allowed the message to be picked up by cellphones. Solar flares cause electromagnetic pulses in the atmosphere, so with increased electromagnetic activity, signals would have been amplified and had a farther range.
https://www.sciencealert.com/no-massive-solar-storm-headed-to-earth-march-2018-noaa-g1
The voicemail was a recording of a robotic voice speaking in military code. After twitter investigators deciphered it, they discovered a chilling warning about aliens followed by a string of numbers that turned out to be coordinates close to the place MH370 vanished from radar. Besides the voicemail, there are many more oddities surrounding this event and there seems to be a synchronistic pattern hiding in plane sight. Flight 370, a Boeing 777, left on the 7th day of the 3rd month and Malaysia Airlines is said to fly nearly 37,000 passengers daily.
https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-26492748#:~:text=Malaysia%27s%20national%20carrier%20is%20one,Jennifer%20Pak%20in%20Kuala%20Lumpur.
The television show Lost seemed to predict the event as well, 10 years before it happened. In the show, a Boeing 777 deviates from its path, turns around, and disappears somewhere off the coast of Australia. This is exactly what MH370 did. The show also seemed to predict who would be on the plane. In Lost, some of the passengers included an actor and two men who used fake passports. On MH370, there was an actor and two men who used fake passports as well.
https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/middleeast/iran/10688861/Mystery-fake-passport-holders-on-flight-MH370-were-Iranian.html
https://www.thestar.com.my/lifestyle/uncategorized/2014/03/13/marco-polo-stuntman-and-jet-lis-body-double-ju-kun-was-also-on-flight-mh370/
The actor was Ju Kun, Jet Li's body double, and fake identities were used by two Iranian men seeking asylum in Europe. Oddly enough, in Lost, a psychic predicts the plane crash. MH370‘s disappearance also seemed to be predicted by the Nigerian prophet T. B. Joshua. In 2013, T. B. Joshua warned that an aircraft carrying over 200 passengers from an Asian nation would have some serious problems. MH370 had 227 passengers on board. The video of his proclamation went viral on YouTube after the flight’s disappearance.
https://emmanuel.tv/content/missing-malaysia-airlines-mh370-prophecy-tb-joshua/
Another strange synchronicity is Lost was first aired on September 22, 2004. September 22 would turn out to be big day for CERN, exactly 7 years later. If you‘re unaware, CERN is a facility that smashes atoms together to create mini black holes and look for other dimensions. On September 22, 2011, CERN succeeded in sending particles faster than the speed of light. Physicists hypothesize that going faster than light speed could actually result in time travel. However, the claim was supposedly debunked sometime later. But this is still up for debate.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faster-than-light_neutrino_anomaly
But what I find most strange, is the fact that the man who made this discovery was forced to resign. Conspiracy theorists claim CERN did in fact achieve time travel and caused the past to change, a phenomenon known as the Mandela Effect. They say this historical event constantly switches back and forth between having happened on the 22nd or 23rd. Supposedly, every year around this time, new inconsistencies in history pop up.
https://www.alternatememories.com/historical-events/general/september-22-23-date-anomalies
Ironically, the plot of Lost is centered around a time travel experiment called the Dharma Initiative. In The Lost Experience, it’s revealed that the goal of the experiment was for people to alter the timeline and push back doomsday. Oddly enough, its logo looks just like CERN.
CERN compared to the Dharma Initiative's logo
Coincidentally, The Lost Experience was an alternate reality game. Remember that the voicemail received by Ty was thought to be part of an ARG as well. Similarly, the investigation sparked by Ty’s thread uncovered the date of a supposed doomsday event, April 18, 2018. Many speculated that on this day there would be an alien invasion. Obviously this didn’t happen, but perhaps uncovering the plan pushed back doomsday, like in the Lost game. With UFOs now in the news, the idea of an alien invasion or apocalyptic event seems even more relevant. If you’ve read my other threads, you know I think the apocalypse has something do with something known as the Black Sun. Oddly enough, MH370 also has connections to this concept. The Black Sun is a symbol that some say represents a portal to somewhere beyond space and time. This strange mural dedicated to the disappearance of MH370 depicts the plane flying straight into something resembling a black hole. The portal seems to be luring the passengers inside by telling them to come in.
\"Come in!!\"
Another mural seems to depict this as well. In this picture, we see a plane flying right into what appears to be a tear in the fabric of reality. Yet another mural shows the missing flight returning through one. Were the passengers of MH370 taken to another dimension?
Some questionable murals
This all seems reminiscent of Donnie Darko, a movie about doomsday, time travel, and a plane falling through a black hole in the sky. Just like in Lost, the main character, who is guided by a demonic humanoid rabbit, is tasked with closing a time loop and stopping the apocalypse. The Black Sun is also symbolic of Saturn, which was known to the ancients as the god of time. Saturn is also famous for having a hexagon on its North Pole. In the painting below, we see MH370 trapped behind a net of hexagons. Were the passengers victims of a Saturnian ritual?
A literal hex on MH370?
Even stranger, in Man of Steel, a trident shaped UFO that resembles the Malaysian Airlines logo crashes off the coast of Australia, just like MH370 did. The movie shows the coordinates of the UFO being 37° S 76° E. Here we see more numerology at work. But it gets weirder. If you type in the opposite coordinates, 37° N 76° W, you get the location of King Neptune‘s Park on Virginia Beach. At the park there is a statue of King Neptune holding a trident. The streets leading up to the park, which are adjacent to 33rd Street, form a trident as well.
Just a coincidence?
Okay, these 'coincidences' are getting a little out of hand.
Ironically, Virginia Beach is an hour drive from Middlesex, the town where Donnie Darko takes place. In Mission Impossible III, another movie centered around chasing a white rabbit, there’s a scene where the Malaysian Airlines logo can be seen from behind, revealing a hidden 666.
Do you see?!
The same exact scene was also used in the movie Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. The movie is about sun harvesting robots who reside on one of Saturn’s moons. I find it odd they reused the same footage for two films released roughly 3 years apart.
Hmmm...
The area MH370 went missing was also near one of the 12 Vile Vortices. The Vile Vortices are anomalous regions where the planet’s electromagnetic field is thought to be stronger than usual. The regions are known for UFO activity and strange disappearances of boats and planes. The Devil’s Triangle, better known as The Bermuda Triangle, is one of the most famous Vile Vortices. Oddly enough, on the exact opposite side of the globe, is the region MH370 disappeared. Are these two places somehow connected?
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ivan_T._Sanderson
The Bermuda Triangle (right) and the area MH370 went missing (left)
All these connections could be nothing more than a coincidence, but I find them too profound to dismiss. I believe the matrix speaks to us in symbols and I believe it is trying to tell us what really happened to MH370. There is still a lot more to this story and it involves the rabbit symbolism I mentioned briefly. I’ve written about the white rabbit and it’s connection to time travel before, but maybe I will do a part 2 where I go into it in more detail another time. Anyways, as always, thanks for reading.

2020.09.23 22:40 CyrilDPP [M4F] [Rule 34/R34] Prompt Dump

This prompt is always open.
Rule 34 is pretty much the best. There’s so many interesting character designs and personalities across so many forms of media, and pretty much everyone has a few fictional crushes. This prompt set is for people who are connoisseurs of digital eye candy.
I’m over 18, and expect all applicants to be the same. I also expect all involved characters to be over the age of eighteen, so canon will have to be shifted on a case-by-case basis. Each of my prompts that deal with characters who are canonically underage includes a brief adjustment the setting to make as much sense as possible while still maintaining close approximations of context-- high school students become university students, etcetera.
Here’s my kinklist, to get it on the table early. Nothing on there is an absolute must, and there’s a whole lotta ‘like’ and ‘favorite’. A lot of my prompts below are leaning more towards vanilla than hard kinks, but that’s for accessibility. If you like to get freaky, seriously, take a look at the kinklist. I probably like something that you also do, even if you don’t see it in a prompt. Let me know, we can discuss it.
First up, the prompt ideas themselves. These are general ideas that can be adjusted and discussed. I’m also open to much more, really; please feel free to suggest and I will always entertain and respond.
Canon-(ish) (preferred): We stay inside the lore and universe of the game. Whether this is a canon romance happening, an OC hooking up with a canon character, a branch off where two characters who didn’t hook up in the source material end up as an item, or a bad end that shows what happens to the hero(es) after failing in their quest… it takes place in the universe the characters are familiar with. Almost all of the prompt suggestions below fit this bill. Please note that SPOILERS will be in some of my suggestions, and thus I’ve chosen to hide them behind a spoiler tag to make sure I don’t ruin the games/anime for anyone.
Modern AU: The characters from the in-universe end up in, well, ours. Whether through a portal, or just adjusting their world so that it happens in ours, the character or characters of our story live in the world we know and love. They go to restaurants and movies, hit up bars, use Tinder… whatever normal, well-adjusted people in this world do.
Cosplayer: A girl who really likes the design and/or personality of a character tries going as them to a convention. This leads to lots of attention from lots of guys, at least one of whom she ends up interested in enough to play around with.
Next, the fandoms that I’m actively interested in, alphabetized because I’m a madman. I’m gradually adding examples of in-universe ideas for each and adding fandoms as I go, and I’d be happy to play out those examples if someone is interested, but otherwise they’re just suggestions to outline the kind of scenes I have in mind. Some of them are sweet, romantic endeavors between characters both established and original. Some of them are significantly more hardcore. I’m pretty down for either, to be honest. They’re just a sample of some of my ideas,so you know I'm actually serious. You might notice that some of them are F4F-- I'm totally down for playing a girl or futa alongside another girl or futa.
Please note that both of the below lists are far from complete. If there’s something rule 34 that you’re interested in playing, let me know. Adding to my pool of prompts is always fun. If I know the source material well enough that I could even decently pull it off, I’m sure we can arrange something.

2020.09.23 10:14 WeirdMeptune Painted Plummet [ Undertale AU ]

ya know, the one where jaiden animations is sans
...
This AU is one of the best Undertale AUs ever with its basic idea. [ all characters are animator youtubers ]...
However, there is a lack of an agreed upon story and constant cast. And this AU is a bit dated [ just a bit tho ], with people like Maz, CypherDen, Elie Cartoons, Rushlight Invader, Infamous Swoosh etc being not included
So, I really want to start to making everything consistent...
I found a good list to start with on https://undertale-au-soundtrack.fandom.com/wiki/Painted_Plummet
but i really want to constitute some characters or add new ones.
and i need some opinion on this story :-
In the beginning, there were only 2 types of Youtubers : The animators and the gamers.
They used to live in harmony together, collabing with each other and promoting each others' works.
However, slowly after generations of internet, the two [ once friendly ] groups began to grow a distrust between each other. Eventually this lead to the Great Algorithm War of 2009 [ need a better year], which involved them funneling their fans to mass-hate the opposite group, and causing them to fighting against each other for the last view on their video.
Sadly as the war passed, the major animation companies and thus the Algorithm unanimously agreed to support the gamers in order to drive off competition. The Animators lost, they were demonetized and their social presence disappeared [ it is said ].However, their work was archived.
They were exiled to the UnderWeb [ you know, the secret internet not the darkweb ], where they were trapped by a barrier created by the [ then ] drama side of youtube, which strongly supported in the Exile of the Animators.
However after reading through the [ now widely available ] internet archives, the animators realized that the only way of escaping the UnderWeb is by harnessing the power of seven 'souls' [ Each one for each main sector of youtube [ gaming, vlogs, drama, educatonal, music , YTP [ or animal vids], and AI ]. After years [ internet centuries ], the ruler [ OneyNG ] was able to collect the 'souls' of the first six, last left being AI/bot.
In present, AI Kizuna [ after chatting with her friends ] decides to explore the ancient ruins of youtube, just to view the sights. She tripped and fell down into the UnderWeb [ Story Begins ] .

2020.09.21 02:25 human1526 The Xaling race

Idk if full races are ok but...
http://imgur.com/a/PqB7VRY
The Xaling (ˈzɔːlɪŋ) originate from an overgrown, cold, yet jungle like planet containing nine contents, and three oceans.
24.5 bar atmosphere. Most of the atmosphere is helium, the second most abundant element, all hydrogen has become bonded with other things or become methane. Nitrogen makes up about three percent of the atmosphere and trace gasses make the other one percent.
~(-100°C) boiling point of methane
~(-180°C) freezing point of methane
(-147°C) average planetary temperature.
Sun is 1.1 solar masses
Distance from Sun is 5.5 AU
(822,800,000 km)
Planetary mass 1.3×Earth
12.2963 Earth year orbital period
Nearest star: laurak, and ain. A binary class k and class g star. Based on current orbital speed and atmospheric thickness, the xaling homeworld was likely floating through the galaxy for about 1 billion years, and did not originate from the laurak/ain system.
Nearest star distance: 4.6 - 4.7 LY
Planetary origin.
The Xaling homeworld was originally an ice ball of sorts, covered in frozen methane as it floated between star systems, picking up a thick helium and hydrogen atmosphere in the process.
As it approached and was captured by a star the planet warmed, allowing the methane to liquify into oceans and most of the hydrogen atmosphere to cook off, bond with other things, or become more methane. Using methane as a solvent similar to earth life with water, hydrocarbon based xenobiology began to form, and eventually led to multicellular organisms.
Being a captured planet is also why it's orbit is not on the same plane as the other planets, along with the orbit direction and planetary spin being opposite of other objects in the system.
Evolution:
The Xaling originate from the north aclesian mud krisk, a hairless brown spider like creature with a ball shaped body, four knobby legs, and four small pincers on the end of primitive arm like structures that hang under it's head. This creature exhibits primitive intelligence, and has been seen throwing rocks or sticks at other members of their group. This is thought to be a form of play among the younger krisk, as they may toss a rock back and forth among each other.
A number of krisk migrated east of aclesia and into a planes like region in rqun where they evolved into a now extinct species with slightly longer limbs and purple skin.
This extinct species eventually diverged, one half staying on the planes in rqun, while the other half moved south, through the Equatorial jungle.
Dawn of Xaling civilisation:
Those who remained on the planes became fatter, allowing for longer time between feedings, and learned how to farm the purple grass like plants that grew there. Soon, they began making more permanent living spaces, digging their burrows deep into the ground, and eventually, making the first city.
Within 100 years of the first city they had developed a social class system, Monetary units of pressed iron, a delicacy similar to soup that is still enjoyed today, and most importantly, began building free standing structures.
Xaling cites spread across the planes region, some splitting off, forming their own country. Wars where fought and over time a great empire came forth, it erected spires, some over 200 feet tall in an attempt to appease the gods above, may they provide extra rain this year and ward off disease among livestock.
This empire reached a golden age and forgot their religion as they eventually created computers, automated production, and medical advancements. The Xaling population exploded as the death rate fell, but with more Xaling came a greater need for food. A lack of food caused by drought, blight, and the rise of crime led to a coup, the government was overthrown and the rebels could not hold the empire together, within a year it collapsed into 30 small nations.
The nations fought among one another, eventually becoming a total of 12.
In an effort to find more land to support a starving population the king of fearn approved an expedition into the equatorial jungles, believing that more land may be found on the other side of bug, parasite, and disease infested toxic land.
The expedition traveled for 455 days before reaching the other side, only 22 of the original 300 had survived. Rather than finding more planes land as they had hoped, they where met with a forested land, where the ground was clear, yet eternally cloaked in darkness as strange tree like structures fought for sun in the mile high canopy.
They soon encountered a village of strange Xaling with odd growths. They farmed exotic plants, fed strange meat sacks that hung from above, and lived in fleshy huts that grew from the ground.
Southern history:
When primitive Xaling reached the new land of darkness in the continent of tres they discovered a plant that can grow in the dark, and small snake like creatures that have offspring on a daily basis, now known as the "Jungle Buffalo" despite their desert origin. (Deep south)
Adapting to have more eyes than their planes based counterparts, they could see better in the dark. Soon they too built citys, and to an extent, their own countrys.
The southern Xaling, though they had fewer countrys, less population, and fought each other less, where much more technologically advanced.
Being able to eat the lightless plants, and the daily offspring of the jungle buffalo, allowed for a more nutritious diet. While the Xaling of rqun fought for space and where desperate for food, the Xaling of tres often existed peacefully due to the abundant resources and where allowed more time in their day to innovate and make their life even easier.
Following the creation of computers, the southern Xaling sent an expedition to the north. A number of archeologists theorised the existence of richer thorium deposits, the difference being caused by plate movement. The expedition worked through the equatorial jungles, met a village of territorial fat planes Xaling, and where killed.
After another expedition was sent and brought word of the situation back to the southern capital the government decided to leave the north alone, they will ether advance to a level in which war is unthinkable, reach a level in which they can cross the jungles and must be given more serious thought, or they will annihilate themselves, allowing the south to sweep across their ruins. They will ether advance and contact the south, or Parrish, leaving their land open to colonisation. The south need only wait.
The south soon advanced their technology beyond machines and into the world of bioengineering, eventually discovering the flat, a bacteria that can be used for bioware augmentations and growth of biological structures.
The time of machines came and went as the southern Xaling began to grow their houses and factorys. Muscled tubes criss crossed the land and underground, cargo and passengers packed into large, ribbed, football shaped containers that the tubes pushed from one city to another.
The arrival of an expedition from the north sparked a movement among the southern xaling, pressuring the government to unite the two sides.
Long Biopassages with hard outer shells where grown across the toxic jungles.
Discovery of the south and creation of the passages caused conflict among the northern nations as those bordering the jungle had more ease of access.
The south soon closed off the passages, stating that the north must collect themselves before engaging in further contact.
It is unclear what happened to the northern Xaling next, all records of the north where destroyed in some great war, the south is the only reason information from before the war was saved.
After 50 years had passed the south opened up the passages again out of concern for the north, finding that most major citys had been destroyed and what few northern Xaling where left had fallen into a state of technobarbarism, surviving in the ruins, feeding on each other and what pests scurried around. Some groups worshiping what little technology they had.
The south spread across the northern lands and brought the barbaric hordes back into civility, soon they spread across the rest of their planet, creating a vast empire to last the ages. 100 years later, they invented flight, and 50 after that, the first rocket.
After reaching the edge of their solar system they encountered a great ship. 1000 miles long, the "RMS CONTACT" had been watching the little Xaling for over 1500 years, waiting for them to unify their planet and reach for the stars, seeing eye to eye on most idealistic issues and a mutual curiosity, the Xaling and Rodan machine race began trade, and have existed without major conflict.
Life:
Xaling typically have a hatch of 7. Younglings are born with 6-34 eyes, but 95% have between 14 and 22, it is extremely rare to have an odd number of eyes. Hatchlings are usually smart enough to speak by the end of three months and strong enough to crawl by eight months, though it is only at one year old that they grow arms and claws with two "fingers" on the top arms, and three on the stronger low arms.
Xaling begin working with their parents at this stage, the parents leading their young ones in completing various tasks. This prepares them for following instructions in school and latter in life, along with teaching the 1/20 Xaling who are slightly more intelligent how to lead.
Between age one and five, a young xaling may claim a "comfort rock" that it grows attached to. This is thought to be an old evolutionary quark from the mud krisk, brought out by the young following their instincts more closely, typically growing out of it by age five.
At year four the Xaling are given tags, there are often too many for names alone to be meaningful, the tag contains a 12 digit number, their date of birth, and common name.
Young Xaling take classes of 100, attending every day, 10 hours a day, year round, all the way until they are 22.
They then enter a secondary school where they might pick a career and learn of it.
After the secondary school they may begin working, often starting in low level janitorial jobs, slowly buying augmentations and working their way up as their augmentations allow them to perform better than their counterparts.
Xaling usually live to be 120 years old without augmentations, with them their max life span is inconclusive. This often results in the most augmented and oldest Xaling being the most powerful, the older you are, the more money you have, and money is power.
With money, age, and inevitable boredom, comes the need for things to do and things to want. Various forms of metal art, gems, glass, and intricate food art are consumed by the super rich, with some malls as big as citys, the largest of which has over 30,000 stores under a single roof.
Cybernetics, Biocybernetics and Cybercosis
Augmentation is common, if not necessary for success in Xaling society, though they cannot be installed in a Xaling less than 20, due to continuing brain development.
CYBERNETICS are often the cheeper alternative for augmentations, being made of metal and computers, they often run hot and are inefficient at complex tasks, though they are generally good enough or even preferable for basic functions like replacing an eye, limb, or fast mathematical processing. Using cheeper cybernetics and material may require the use of an immunosuppressant to avoid an adverse reaction, though this increases the risk of infection and general disease.
Because if this, though there are very cheep cybernetics on the black market all but the poorest of lower class and those in rough neighborhoods use proper stores and hospitals to install them. Metal armor and voluntary limb replacement is quite common in rough and poor districts.
BIOCYBERNETICS are much more expensive and rare. Most can only be acquired through a hospital with proper growing vats/tubes and the ability to program flats, though a few high end stores, may have a basic biokit to install them.
Biokits may also be gotten on the black market, though they can cause severe side effects or death if not operated properly, the lower class may use biocybernetics, though they are much more risky than the mechanical alternative given the reputation of lower class biomechanics.
CYBERCOSIS is a mental, condition wherein the subject looses touch with reality due to over augmentation.
Though the effects can vary widely based on the enhancements, and the subject's mental predisposition. Cybercosis is less common in subjects with biocybernetics, though not unheard of.
Physical
Physical enhancement has the least impact on xaling psychology. Mental side effects are extremely rare, however with full body replacement also comes full sensory replacement and possible overload. (See sensory below) most side effects are caused by a subject's ethics and personal philosophy.
Physical enhancements can cause a sense of emptiness and depression, having lost most of their biological body, some subjects may feel that all they need is electricity and a paste to feed their nervous system, making other things and their life seem pointless, like eating, sleeping, and socializing. This may be a gradual and creeping sense of dread as more augmentation is added, or begin as a sudden realization of what the subject has become.
On the other end, a subject may be thrilled with the idea, feeling that it has made them near immortal, and having freed them from the needs of a biological body, perhaps feeling more familiar with machines than their own biological brethren. These may be refered to as cybrx (ˈsaɪbrs), a corruption of cybrex (ˈsaɪbrɛks), the name given to them by humans when they came in contact with the xaling, since the effects of modification on these individuals are similar to the effects on heavily augmented human cybrex. (Was caused by a human typo and translation error. The error was discovered several hours later, however xaling scientists had already released the conversation transcript to reporters and media outlets, and the name stuck. For a time the scientific community refered to augmented xaling as cybrex, though they did eventually accept cybrx to help distinguish themselves from the human variant. Before humans there was no official name for the cybrx.)
While most will go about their normal lives, some cybrx may attempt to gather a following of like minded augmented xaling, feeling they need to free themselves from basic biological needs. These groups can range from reserved and closed off, to open and accepting of the unaugmented, keeping track of a credit to help pay for their conversion.
Individuals may rise among the cybrx that ether have a predisposition causing insanity, or may suffer from too many mental or sensory augmentation.
Attacks from over augmented cybrx are very rare, though quite devastating. An average of 0.005/100,000 people die (an average of 25 per square mile) every year from such attacks. (There are ~1,000,000,000,000 Xaling on their homeworld. A total of ~5,000,000 world wide die every year from attacks. This sounds like allot, but consider that 292,320,000 xaling hatch every day planet wide.) Although being a cybrx in and of it's self is not harmful, or risky to others, the aforementioned damage caused by a sick cybrx, and the media have created a negative misconception about heavy physical augmentation.
A special squad of police are used to respond to attacks, they are often remote controlled war machines or manned biomechs equiped to capture or (usually) kill the agitators. The rodan may assist or arm these squads, basic rodan weapons being more advanced than most xaling equipment, along with a stronger bipedal body better designed for physical combat.
25%-30% of the population may qualify to be a cybrx. ~2% of cybrx may be unstable.
sensory
Sensory cybernetics can cause sleeping issues and if too many are installed, can cause sensory overload.
Symptoms of overload usually entail schizophrenic behavior, such as mistrust of friends and a senseless fear of certain objects, such as a hammer, or knife laying on the floor that could be used as a weapon, despite there being no one in sight.
Overloaded individuals may avoid or suddenly run away from friends and attempt to destroy or run away from the frightening object. It is extremely rare for subjects to attack friends during an anxiety attack.
Individuals suffering from an anxiety attack may be reported and taken in by the government, having their cybernetics removed and put into rehabilitation, often having a full recovery within a year.
~90% of the population have sensory systems. ~5% of the population may be unstable.
mental
Mental enhancement is some of the most complex, as it adds to or replaces part of the subject's brain.
Mental enhancements are almost never done by established shops and often too expensive for low lives to buy on the black market. The most basic of mechanical mental enhancements are more expensive than most biological enhancements of the other two categories.
Mental enhancements have the greatest effect out of all mods, but also the greatest risk, and adverse effects.
It is much rarer for someone to become unstable from too many mental enhancements due to cost prohibiting most people from getting more than one or two, however, there have been a few cases where higher class citizens have gone crazy, or developed a split personality from too many augments.
Symptoms typically range from loosing time, to sleep walking for several days, to loosing control over your body, being traped inside, only able to watch as your mods work as you.
There are very few known methods of detecting and helping a person who has too many mental implants, due to the delicate nature of them, and potential to loose vast amounts of memory if they are deactivated, due to the subject's brain relying on them to store data or process information. Removing the mods may leve the subject a vegetable.
Because of their inherent danger, mental enhancements are highly regulated, and only so many can be made per year.
The government bids out the right to make these enhancements every 10 years, with the cost getting added to the highest bidder's taxes.
~40% of the population have at least one mental implant. ~1% may be overcome by them.
otheunclear
There are many other augmentations that have an unclear position among the categories. An example would be neural plugs and I/O systems for the net. (internet)
Though they do connect to the brain, and may qualify as an addition in some respects, they are not considered mental augmentations since they usually do not handle cognitive processes, instead they are considered a sensory augment since they are enabling the connection between a biological brain and the net, usually through a brain's auditory and visual centers.
Religion:
Due to wide spread education and technology, religion is very rare among xaling, and what little there is usually has to do with the worship of technology, limbo, or the universe.
These religions usually pop up in poorly educated districts and are usually the result of misinterpreting a subject, especially limbo the entity and limbo subspace.
The largest underground religion is the "church of othob" with 12,000 members.
Though the government does not have a law against religion, they do discourage it.
Space politics:
Over the years sentiment grew between the Xaling and Rodan empires, both are very number orientated, and do not like to waist time, when they want something they get it. Xaling still maintain the majority of their population on their homeworld, often sharing worlds with the Rodan, who prefer a cold environment to properly run their factorys and computers, along with the ability to experiment with xaling DNA and methane based life, specifically methane based neural nets. In exchange the Rodan, with the best ships, offer highly discounted space travel and manufacturing services.
(Gold, due to it's electrical use and inherent rarity, is the galactic standard currency exchanged between all known races.)
The xaling and rodan have also gone on many research ventures. Rodan have a special interest in the aforementioned neural nets due to their ability to aid in parallel processing, more naturally extrapolate probability, and survive at the cold temperatures of space. Carbon based nets are very touchy and need to be warmed, while the machines next to it like to run cold. The downside being that cold hydrocarbon nets must be very pressurised, or kept at a very narrow temperature window so the methane does not freeze or boil. Keeping it in a small temperature window is not that hard for rodan technology and low pressure makes the container less dangerous if it fails, but there will be a significant slowdown since low pressure atoms become more spaced out, increasing signal travel distance, and calculation time.
Low pressure carbon based nets also have the disadvantage of using an axon with synapse at the end, while hydrocarbon nerves do not utilise an axon, instead having terminals and synapse branching off the main cell next to the dendrites. This makes the carbon nets slower than hydrocarbon ones at high pressures, and faster at low pressures. (The speed difference is more mellowed out with carbon nets, they still get slower at low pressures, and faster at high pressures, but not as much as hydrocarbon nets.)
In addition to neural nets, there have been multiple projects involving a regenerating hull for jumpships. Travel though limbo can be very corrosive to a ship's hull depending on how fast you go and how close to gravity wells you get. A hull that can regenerate would allow for longer jumps and would do away with the need for hull inspection and time consuming plate replacement.
Several experimental ships have been fitted with a regenerating carapace, however it has proven to grow far too slowly and consumes far too much food material to be practical and does not work well with extremely hot plasma shields.
It has been theorised that regenerating hulls may be practical for 1000 mile long void class ships, due to the square/cube law, though such a massive venture has not yet been tested.
Xaling ships:
As mentioned before, most transportation is done with rodan vessels though the xaling still favor their own ships for some scientific endeavors in other systems, and mining, where renting a rodan ship is too expensive for the profitable collection and selling of fusionable material. (Mostly hydrogen from gas giants.)
That being said, xaling ships are commonly made of steel, aluminum, or some other metallic substance, and have an augmented xaling pilot connected to the ship. Most ships are controlled entirely by the pilot, and any crew are usually security (turret crew and boarding party deterrent), engineers (repair), and medics.
Only the largest ships will have more than the pilot and captain connected to the bridge at the same time.
Piracy:
As with every space faring biological civilisation, there will be piracy. These pirates typically hide in caves, in planetary rings, and the far reaches of the solar system.
Pirates are usually poor miners, broke merchants, ships with mutineer crew, or escaped criminals.
These pirates, much like human pirates of old, usually leave people and bigger ships alone, and typically only kill when they are not given what they want, or need to keep up an image. (They are people, not ruthless animals after all.)
The most notable pirate is "commander blue". (Known for his once oddly blue skin, only known to happen when some xaling are born in space.) His father was a miner who's ship was mistakenly attacked by a rodan escort who was not informed by the xaling space controll agency of their presence near a gas giant.
Blue can qualify as a cybrx, (the name carried over, even after conversion.) commands at least 56 ships, and is known for boarding ships with his cloths on fire, attempting to paint an evil or crazy image of himself so the ship is less likely to resist once boarded. His first officer acts as a more down to earth moderator, pretending to argue against blue's seemingly insane ramblings to butcher, kill, or torture the captured ship's crew.
Blue has also been known to ram other ships if normal combat is ineffective (combat with greater than 1,000,000 miles between ships.) And is rumored to have a giant shipyard floating between stars somewhere in the buffalo nebulae. Though all attempts to find it have come up empty, causing some to believe the base is somewhere else, or does not exist.

2020.09.20 22:56 human1526 [Show and tell] The Xaling Race.

Idk if full races are ok but...
http://imgur.com/a/PqB7VRY
The Xaling (ˈzɔːlɪŋ) originate from an overgrown, cold, yet jungle like planet containing nine contents, and three oceans.
24.5 bar atmosphere. Most of the atmosphere is helium, the second most abundant element, all hydrogen has become bonded with other things or become methane. Nitrogen makes up about three percent of the atmosphere and trace gasses make the other one percent.
~(-100°C) boiling point of methane
~(-180°C) freezing point of methane
(-147°C) average planetary temperature.
Sun is 1.1 solar masses
Distance from Sun is 5.5 AU
(822,800,000 km)
Planetary mass 1.3×Earth
12.2963 Earth year orbital period
Nearest star: laurak, and ain. A binary class k and class g star. Based on current orbital speed and atmospheric thickness, the xaling homeworld was likely floating through the galaxy for about 1 billion years, and did not originate from the laurak/ain system.
Nearest star distance: 4.6 - 4.7 LY
Planetary origin.
The Xaling homeworld was originally an ice ball of sorts, covered in frozen methane as it floated between star systems, picking up a thick helium and hydrogen atmosphere in the process.
As it approached and was captured by a star the planet warmed, allowing the methane to liquify into oceans and most of the hydrogen atmosphere to cook off, bond with other things, or become more methane. Using methane as a solvent similar to earth life with water, hydrocarbon based xenobiology began to form, and eventually led to multicellular organisms.
Being a captured planet is also why it's orbit is not on the same plane as the other planets, along with the orbit direction and planetary spin being opposite of other objects in the system.
Evolution:
The Xaling originate from the north aclesian mud krisk, a hairless brown spider like creature with a ball shaped body, four knobby legs, and four small pincers on the end of primitive arm like structures that hang under it's head. This creature exhibits primitive intelligence, and has been seen throwing rocks or sticks at other members of their group. This is thought to be a form of play among the younger krisk, as they may toss a rock back and forth among each other.
A number of krisk migrated east of aclesia and into a planes like region in rqun where they evolved into a now extinct species with slightly longer limbs and purple skin.
This extinct species eventually diverged, one half staying on the planes in rqun, while the other half moved south, through the Equatorial jungle.
Dawn of Xaling civilisation:
Those who remained on the planes became fatter, allowing for longer time between feedings, and learned how to farm the purple grass like plants that grew there. Soon, they began making more permanent living spaces, digging their burrows deep into the ground, and eventually, making the first city.
Within 100 years of the first city they had developed a social class system, Monetary units of pressed iron, a delicacy similar to soup that is still enjoyed today, and most importantly, began building free standing structures.
Xaling cites spread across the planes region, some splitting off, forming their own country. Wars where fought and over time a great empire came forth, it erected spires, some over 200 feet tall in an attempt to appease the gods above, may they provide extra rain this year and ward off disease among livestock.
This empire reached a golden age and forgot their religion as they eventually created computers, automated production, and medical advancements. The Xaling population exploded as the death rate fell, but with more Xaling came a greater need for food. A lack of food caused by drought, blight, and the rise of crime led to a coup, the government was overthrown and the rebels could not hold the empire together, within a year it collapsed into 30 small nations.
The nations fought among one another, eventually becoming a total of 12.
In an effort to find more land to support a starving population the king of fearn approved an expedition into the equatorial jungles, believing that more land may be found on the other side of bug, parasite, and disease infested toxic land.
The expedition traveled for 455 days before reaching the other side, only 22 of the original 300 had survived. Rather than finding more planes land as they had hoped, they where met with a forested land, where the ground was clear, yet eternally cloaked in darkness as strange tree like structures fought for sun in the mile high canopy.
They soon encountered a village of strange Xaling with odd growths. They farmed exotic plants, fed strange meat sacks that hung from above, and lived in fleshy huts that grew from the ground.
Southern history:
When primitive Xaling reached the new land of darkness in the continent of tres they discovered a plant that can grow in the dark, and small snake like creatures that have offspring on a daily basis, now known as the "Jungle Buffalo" despite their desert origin. (Deep south)
Adapting to have more eyes than their planes based counterparts, they could see better in the dark. Soon they too built citys, and to an extent, their own countrys.
The southern Xaling, though they had fewer countrys, less population, and fought each other less, where much more technologically advanced.
Being able to eat the lightless plants, and the daily offspring of the jungle buffalo, allowed for a more nutritious diet. While the Xaling of rqun fought for space and where desperate for food, the Xaling of tres often existed peacefully due to the abundant resources and where allowed more time in their day to innovate and make their life even easier.
Following the creation of computers, the southern Xaling sent an expedition to the north. A number of archeologists theorised the existence of richer thorium deposits, the difference being caused by plate movement. The expedition worked through the equatorial jungles, met a village of territorial fat planes Xaling, and where killed.
After another expedition was sent and brought word of the situation back to the southern capital the government decided to leave the north alone, they will ether advance to a level in which war is unthinkable, reach a level in which they can cross the jungles and must be given more serious thought, or they will annihilate themselves, allowing the south to sweep across their ruins. They will ether advance and contact the south, or Parrish, leaving their land open to colonisation. The south need only wait.
The south soon advanced their technology beyond machines and into the world of bioengineering, eventually discovering the flat, a bacteria that can be used for bioware augmentations and growth of biological structures.
The time of machines came and went as the southern Xaling began to grow their houses and factorys. Muscled tubes criss crossed the land and underground, cargo and passengers packed into large, ribbed, football shaped containers that the tubes pushed from one city to another.
The arrival of an expedition from the north sparked a movement among the southern xaling, pressuring the government to unite the two sides.
Long Biopassages with hard outer shells where grown across the toxic jungles.
Discovery of the south and creation of the passages caused conflict among the northern nations as those bordering the jungle had more ease of access.
The south soon closed off the passages, stating that the north must collect themselves before engaging in further contact.
It is unclear what happened to the northern Xaling next, all records of the north where destroyed in some great war, the south is the only reason information from before the war was saved.
After 50 years had passed the south opened up the passages again out of concern for the north, finding that most major citys had been destroyed and what few northern Xaling where left had fallen into a state of technobarbarism, surviving in the ruins, feeding on each other and what pests scurried around. Some groups worshiping what little technology they had.
The south spread across the northern lands and brought the barbaric hordes back into civility, soon they spread across the rest of their planet, creating a vast empire to last the ages. 100 years later, they invented flight, and 50 after that, the first rocket.
After reaching the edge of their solar system they encountered a great ship. 1000 miles long, the "RMS CONTACT" had been watching the little Xaling for over 1500 years, waiting for them to unify their planet and reach for the stars, seeing eye to eye on most idealistic issues and a mutual curiosity, the Xaling and Rodan machine race began trade, and have existed without major conflict.
Life:
Xaling typically have a hatch of 7. Younglings are born with 6-34 eyes, but 95% have between 14 and 22, it is extremely rare to have an odd number of eyes. Hatchlings are usually smart enough to speak by the end of three months and strong enough to crawl by eight months, though it is only at one year old that they grow arms and claws with two "fingers" on the top arms, and three on the stronger low arms.
Xaling begin working with their parents at this stage, the parents leading their young ones in completing various tasks. This prepares them for following instructions in school and latter in life, along with teaching the 1/20 Xaling who are slightly more intelligent how to lead.
Between age one and five, a young xaling may claim a "comfort rock" that it grows attached to. This is thought to be an old evolutionary quark from the mud krisk, brought out by the young following their instincts more closely, typically growing out of it by age five.
At year four the Xaling are given tags, there are often too many for names alone to be meaningful, the tag contains a 12 digit number, their date of birth, and common name.
Young Xaling take classes of 100, attending every day, 10 hours a day, year round, all the way until they are 22.
They then enter a secondary school where they might pick a career and learn of it.
After the secondary school they may begin working, often starting in low level janitorial jobs, slowly buying augmentations and working their way up as their augmentations allow them to perform better than their counterparts.
Xaling usually live to be 120 years old without augmentations, with them their max life span is inconclusive. This often results in the most augmented and oldest Xaling being the most powerful, the older you are, the more money you have, and money is power.
With money, age, and inevitable boredom, comes the need for things to do and things to want. Various forms of metal art, gems, glass, and intricate food art are consumed by the super rich, with some malls as big as citys, the largest of which has over 30,000 stores under a single roof.
Cybernetics, Biocybernetics and Cybercosis
Augmentation is common, if not necessary for success in Xaling society, though they cannot be installed in a Xaling less than 20, due to continuing brain development.
CYBERNETICS are often the cheeper alternative for augmentations, being made of metal and computers, they often run hot and are inefficient at complex tasks, though they are generally good enough or even preferable for basic functions like replacing an eye, limb, or fast mathematical processing. Using cheeper cybernetics and material may require the use of an immunosuppressant to avoid an adverse reaction, though this increases the risk of infection and general disease.
Because if this, though there are very cheep cybernetics on the black market all but the poorest of lower class and those in rough neighborhoods use proper stores and hospitals to install them. Metal armor and voluntary limb replacement is quite common in rough and poor districts.
BIOCYBERNETICS are much more expensive and rare. Most can only be acquired through a hospital with proper growing vats/tubes and the ability to program flats, though a few high end stores, may have a basic biokit to install them.
Biokits may also be gotten on the black market, though they can cause severe side effects or death if not operated properly, the lower class may use biocybernetics, though they are much more risky than the mechanical alternative given the reputation of lower class biomechanics.
CYBERCOSIS is a mental, condition wherein the subject looses touch with reality due to over augmentation.
Though the effects can vary widely based on the enhancements, and the subject's mental predisposition. Cybercosis is less common in subjects with biocybernetics, though not unheard of.
Physical
Physical enhancement has the least impact on xaling psychology. Mental side effects are extremely rare, however with full body replacement also comes full sensory replacement and possible overload. (See sensory below) most side effects are caused by a subject's ethics and personal philosophy.
Physical enhancements can cause a sense of emptiness and depression, having lost most of their biological body, some subjects may feel that all they need is electricity and a paste to feed their nervous system, making other things and their life seem pointless, like eating, sleeping, and socializing. This may be a gradual and creeping sense of dread as more augmentation is added, or begin as a sudden realization of what the subject has become.
On the other end, a subject may be thrilled with the idea, feeling that it has made them near immortal, and having freed them from the needs of a biological body, perhaps feeling more familiar with machines than their own biological brethren. These may be refered to as cybrx (ˈsaɪbrs), a corruption of cybrex (ˈsaɪbrɛks), the name given to them by humans when they came in contact with the xaling, since the effects of modification on these individuals are similar to the effects on heavily augmented human cybrex.

While most will go about their normal lives, some cybrx may attempt to gather a following of like minded augmented xaling, feeling they need to free themselves from basic biological needs. These groups can range from reserved and closed off, to open and accepting of the unaugmented, keeping track of a credit to help pay for their conversion.

The rodan may assist or arm these squads, basic rodan weapons being more advanced than most xaling equipment, along with a stronger bipedal body better designed for physical combat.
25%-30% of the population may qualify to be a cybrx. ~2% of cybrx may be unstable.

Sensory cybernetics can cause sleeping issues and if too many are installed, can cause sensory overload.
Symptoms of overload usually entail schizophrenic behavior, such as mistrust of friends and a senseless fear of certain objects, such as a hammer, or knife laying on the floor that could be used as a weapon, despite there being no one in sight.
Overloaded individuals may avoid or suddenly run away from friends and attempt to destroy or run away from the frightening object. It is extremely rare for subjects to attack friends during an anxiety attack.

2020.09.20 22:53 human1526 The Xaling race.

The Xaling (ˈzɔːlɪŋ) originate from an overgrown, cold, yet jungle like planet containing nine contents, and three oceans.
24.5 bar atmosphere. Most of the atmosphere is helium, the second most abundant element, all hydrogen has become bonded with other things or become methane. Nitrogen makes up about three percent of the atmosphere and trace gasses make the other one percent.
~(-100°C) boiling point of methane
~(-180°C) freezing point of methane
(-147°C) average planetary temperature.
Sun is 1.1 solar masses
Distance from Sun is 5.5 AU
(822,800,000 km)
Planetary mass 1.3×Earth
12.2963 Earth year orbital period
Nearest star: laurak, and ain. A binary class k and class g star. Based on current orbital speed and atmospheric thickness, the xaling homeworld was likely floating through the galaxy for about 1 billion years, and did not originate from the laurak/ain system.
Nearest star distance: 4.6 - 4.7 LY
Planetary origin.
The Xaling homeworld was originally an ice ball of sorts, covered in frozen methane as it floated between star systems, picking up a thick helium and hydrogen atmosphere in the process.
As it approached and was captured by a star the planet warmed, allowing the methane to liquify into oceans and most of the hydrogen atmosphere to cook off, bond with other things, or become more methane. Using methane as a solvent similar to earth life with water, hydrocarbon based xenobiology began to form, and eventually led to multicellular organisms.
Being a captured planet is also why it's orbit is not on the same plane as the other planets, along with the orbit direction and planetary spin being opposite of other objects in the system.
Evolution:
The Xaling originate from the north aclesian mud krisk, a hairless brown spider like creature with a ball shaped body, four knobby legs, and four small pincers on the end of primitive arm like structures that hang under it's head. This creature exhibits primitive intelligence, and has been seen throwing rocks or sticks at other members of their group. This is thought to be a form of play among the younger krisk, as they may toss a rock back and forth among each other.
A number of krisk migrated east of aclesia and into a planes like region in rqun where they evolved into a now extinct species with slightly longer limbs and purple skin.
This extinct species eventually diverged, one half staying on the planes in rqun, while the other half moved south, through the Equatorial jungle.
Dawn of Xaling civilisation:
Those who remained on the planes became fatter, allowing for longer time between feedings, and learned how to farm the purple grass like plants that grew there. Soon, they began making more permanent living spaces, digging their burrows deep into the ground, and eventually, making the first city.
Within 100 years of the first city they had developed a social class system, Monetary units of pressed iron, a delicacy similar to soup that is still enjoyed today, and most importantly, began building free standing structures.
Xaling cites spread across the planes region, some splitting off, forming their own country. Wars where fought and over time a great empire came forth, it erected spires, some over 200 feet tall in an attempt to appease the gods above, may they provide extra rain this year and ward off disease among livestock.
This empire reached a golden age and forgot their religion as they eventually created computers, automated production, and medical advancements. The Xaling population exploded as the death rate fell, but with more Xaling came a greater need for food. A lack of food caused by drought, blight, and the rise of crime led to a coup, the government was overthrown and the rebels could not hold the empire together, within a year it collapsed into 30 small nations.
The nations fought among one another, eventually becoming a total of 12.
In an effort to find more land to support a starving population the king of fearn approved an expedition into the equatorial jungles, believing that more land may be found on the other side of bug, parasite, and disease infested toxic land.
The expedition traveled for 455 days before reaching the other side, only 22 of the original 300 had survived. Rather than finding more planes land as they had hoped, they where met with a forested land, where the ground was clear, yet eternally cloaked in darkness as strange tree like structures fought for sun in the mile high canopy.
They soon encountered a village of strange Xaling with odd growths. They farmed exotic plants, fed strange meat sacks that hung from above, and lived in fleshy huts that grew from the ground.
Southern history:
When primitive Xaling reached the new land of darkness in the continent of tres they discovered a plant that can grow in the dark, and small snake like creatures that have offspring on a daily basis, now known as the "Jungle Buffalo" despite their desert origin. (Deep south)
Adapting to have more eyes than their planes based counterparts, they could see better in the dark. Soon they too built citys, and to an extent, their own countrys.
The southern Xaling, though they had fewer countrys, less population, and fought each other less, where much more technologically advanced.
Being able to eat the lightless plants, and the daily offspring of the jungle buffalo, allowed for a more nutritious diet. While the Xaling of rqun fought for space and where desperate for food, the Xaling of tres often existed peacefully due to the abundant resources and where allowed more time in their day to innovate and make their life even easier.
Following the creation of computers, the southern Xaling sent an expedition to the north. A number of archeologists theorised the existence of richer thorium deposits, the difference being caused by plate movement. The expedition worked through the equatorial jungles, met a village of territorial fat planes Xaling, and where killed.
After another expedition was sent and brought word of the situation back to the southern capital the government decided to leave the north alone, they will ether advance to a level in which war is unthinkable, reach a level in which they can cross the jungles and must be given more serious thought, or they will annihilate themselves, allowing the south to sweep across their ruins. They will ether advance and contact the south, or Parrish, leaving their land open to colonisation. The south need only wait.
The south soon advanced their technology beyond machines and into the world of bioengineering, eventually discovering the flat, a bacteria that can be used for bioware augmentations and growth of biological structures.
The time of machines came and went as the southern Xaling began to grow their houses and factorys. Muscled tubes criss crossed the land and underground, cargo and passengers packed into large, ribbed, football shaped containers that the tubes pushed from one city to another.
The arrival of an expedition from the north sparked a movement among the southern xaling, pressuring the government to unite the two sides.
Long Biopassages with hard outer shells where grown across the toxic jungles.
Discovery of the south and creation of the passages caused conflict among the northern nations as those bordering the jungle had more ease of access.
The south soon closed off the passages, stating that the north must collect themselves before engaging in further contact.
It is unclear what happened to the northern Xaling next, all records of the north where destroyed in some great war, the south is the only reason information from before the war was saved.
After 50 years had passed the south opened up the passages again out of concern for the north, finding that most major citys had been destroyed and what few northern Xaling where left had fallen into a state of technobarbarism, surviving in the ruins, feeding on each other and what pests scurried around. Some groups worshiping what little technology they had.
The south spread across the northern lands and brought the barbaric hordes back into civility, soon they spread across the rest of their planet, creating a vast empire to last the ages. 100 years later, they invented flight, and 50 after that, the first rocket.
After reaching the edge of their solar system they encountered a great ship. 1000 miles long, the "RMS CONTACT" had been watching the little Xaling for over 1500 years, waiting for them to unify their planet and reach for the stars, seeing eye to eye on most idealistic issues and a mutual curiosity, the Xaling and Rodan machine race began trade, and have existed without major conflict.
Life:
Xaling typically have a hatch of 7. Younglings are born with 6-34 eyes, but 95% have between 14 and 22, it is extremely rare to have an odd number of eyes. Hatchlings are usually smart enough to speak by the end of three months and strong enough to crawl by eight months, though it is only at one year old that they grow arms and claws with two "fingers" on the top arms, and three on the stronger low arms.
Xaling begin working with their parents at this stage, the parents leading their young ones in completing various tasks. This prepares them for following instructions in school and latter in life, along with teaching the 1/20 Xaling who are slightly more intelligent how to lead.
Between age one and five, a young xaling may claim a "comfort rock" that it grows attached to. This is thought to be an old evolutionary quark from the mud krisk, brought out by the young following their instincts more closely, typically growing out of it by age five.
At year four the Xaling are given tags, there are often too many for names alone to be meaningful, the tag contains a 12 digit number, their date of birth, and common name.
Young Xaling take classes of 100, attending every day, 10 hours a day, year round, all the way until they are 22.
They then enter a secondary school where they might pick a career and learn of it.
After the secondary school they may begin working, often starting in low level janitorial jobs, slowly buying augmentations and working their way up as their augmentations allow them to perform better than their counterparts.
Xaling usually live to be 120 years old without augmentations, with them their max life span is inconclusive. This often results in the most augmented and oldest Xaling being the most powerful, the older you are, the more money you have, and money is power.
With money, age, and inevitable boredom, comes the need for things to do and things to want. Various forms of metal art, gems, glass, and intricate food art are consumed by the super rich, with some malls as big as citys, the largest of which has over 30,000 stores under a single roof.
Cybernetics, Biocybernetics and Cybercosis
Augmentation is common, if not necessary for success in Xaling society, though they cannot be installed in a Xaling less than 20, due to continuing brain development.
CYBERNETICS are often the cheeper alternative for augmentations, being made of metal and computers, they often run hot and are inefficient at complex tasks, though they are generally good enough or even preferable for basic functions like replacing an eye, limb, or fast mathematical processing. Using cheeper cybernetics and material may require the use of an immunosuppressant to avoid an adverse reaction, though this increases the risk of infection and general disease.
Because if this, though there are very cheep cybernetics on the black market all but the poorest of lower class and those in rough neighborhoods use proper stores and hospitals to install them. Metal armor and voluntary limb replacement is quite common in rough and poor districts.
BIOCYBERNETICS are much more expensive and rare. Most can only be acquired through a hospital with proper growing vats/tubes and the ability to program flats, though a few high end stores, may have a basic biokit to install them.
Biokits may also be gotten on the black market, though they can cause severe side effects or death if not operated properly, the lower class may use biocybernetics, though they are much more risky than the mechanical alternative given the reputation of lower class biomechanics.
CYBERCOSIS is a mental, condition wherein the subject looses touch with reality due to over augmentation.
Though the effects can vary widely based on the enhancements, and the subject's mental predisposition. Cybercosis is less common in subjects with biocybernetics, though not unheard of.
Physical
Physical enhancement has the least impact on xaling psychology. Mental side effects are extremely rare, however with full body replacement also comes full sensory replacement and possible overload. (See sensory below) most side effects are caused by a subject's ethics and personal philosophy.
Physical enhancements can cause a sense of emptiness and depression, having lost most of their biological body, some subjects may feel that all they need is electricity and a paste to feed their nervous system, making other things and their life seem pointless, like eating, sleeping, and socializing. This may be a gradual and creeping sense of dread as more augmentation is added, or begin as a sudden realization of what the subject has become.
On the other end, a subject may be thrilled with the idea, feeling that it has made them near immortal, and having freed them from the needs of a biological body, perhaps feeling more familiar with machines than their own biological brethren. These may be refered to as cybrx (ˈsaɪbrs), a corruption of cybrex (ˈsaɪbrɛks), the name given to them by humans when they came in contact with the xaling, since the effects of modification on these individuals are similar to the effects on heavily augmented human cybrex. (Was caused by a human typo and translation error. The error was discovered several hours later, however xaling scientists had already released the conversation transcript to reporters and media outlets, and the name stuck. For a time the scientific community refered to augmented xaling as cybrex, though they did eventually accept cybrx to help distinguish themselves from the human variant. Before humans there was no official name for the cybrx.)
While most will go about their normal lives, some cybrx may attempt to gather a following of like minded augmented xaling, feeling they need to free themselves from basic biological needs. These groups can range from reserved and closed off, to open and accepting of the unaugmented, keeping track of a credit to help pay for their conversion.
Individuals may rise among the cybrx that ether have a predisposition causing insanity, or may suffer from too many mental or sensory augmentation.
Attacks from over augmented cybrx are very rare, though quite devastating. An average of 0.005/100,000 people die (an average of 25 per square mile) every year from such attacks. (There are ~1,000,000,000,000 Xaling on their homeworld. A total of ~5,000,000 world wide die every year from attacks. This sounds like allot, but consider that 292,320,000 xaling hatch every day planet wide.) Although being a cybrx in and of it's self is not harmful, or risky to others, the aforementioned damage caused by a sick cybrx, and the media have created a negative misconception about heavy physical augmentation.
A special squad of police are used to respond to attacks, they are often remote controlled war machines or manned biomechs equiped to capture or (usually) kill the agitators. The rodan may assist or arm these squads, basic rodan weapons being more advanced than most xaling equipment, along with a stronger bipedal body better designed for physical combat.
25%-30% of the population may qualify to be a cybrx. ~2% of cybrx may be unstable.
sensory
Sensory cybernetics can cause sleeping issues and if too many are installed, can cause sensory overload.
Symptoms of overload usually entail schizophrenic behavior, such as mistrust of friends and a senseless fear of certain objects, such as a hammer, or knife laying on the floor that could be used as a weapon, despite there being no one in sight.
Overloaded individuals may avoid or suddenly run away from friends and attempt to destroy or run away from the frightening object. It is extremely rare for subjects to attack friends during an anxiety attack.
Individuals suffering from an anxiety attack may be reported and taken in by the government, having their cybernetics removed and put into rehabilitation, often having a full recovery within a year.
~90% of the population have sensory systems. ~5% of the population may be unstable.
mental
Mental enhancement is some of the most complex, as it adds to or replaces part of the subject's brain.
Mental enhancements are almost never done by established shops and often too expensive for low lives to buy on the black market. The most basic of mechanical mental enhancements are more expensive than most biological enhancements of the other two categories.
Mental enhancements have the greatest effect out of all mods, but also the greatest risk, and adverse effects.
It is much rarer for someone to become unstable from too many mental enhancements due to cost prohibiting most people from getting more than one or two, however, there have been a few cases where higher class citizens have gone crazy, or developed a split personality from too many augments.
Symptoms typically range from loosing time, to sleep walking for several days, to loosing control over your body, being traped inside, only able to watch as your mods work as you.
There are very few known methods of detecting and helping a person who has too many mental implants, due to the delicate nature of them, and potential to loose vast amounts of memory if they are deactivated, due to the subject's brain relying on them to store data or process information. Removing the mods may leve the subject a vegetable.
Because of their inherent danger, mental enhancements are highly regulated, and only so many can be made per year.
The government bids out the right to make these enhancements every 10 years, with the cost getting added to the highest bidder's taxes.
~40% of the population have at least one mental implant. ~1% may be overcome by them.
otheunclear
There are many other augmentations that have an unclear position among the categories. An example would be neural plugs and I/O systems for the net. (internet)
Though they do connect to the brain, and may qualify as an addition in some respects, they are not considered mental augmentations since they usually do not handle cognitive processes, instead they are considered a sensory augment since they are enabling the connection between a biological brain and the net, usually through a brain's auditory and visual centers.
Religion:
Due to wide spread education and technology, religion is very rare among xaling, and what little there is usually has to do with the worship of technology, limbo, or the universe.
These religions usually pop up in poorly educated districts and are usually the result of misinterpreting a subject, especially limbo the entity and limbo subspace.
The largest underground religion is the "church of othob" with 12,000 members.
Though the government does not have a law against religion, they do discourage it.
Space politics:
Over the years sentiment grew between the Xaling and Rodan empires, both are very number orientated, and do not like to waist time, when they want something they get it. Xaling still maintain the majority of their population on their homeworld, often sharing worlds with the Rodan, who prefer a cold environment to properly run their factorys and computers, along with the ability to experiment with xaling DNA and methane based life, specifically methane based neural nets. In exchange the Rodan, with the best ships, offer highly discounted space travel and manufacturing services.
(Gold, due to it's electrical use and inherent rarity, is the galactic standard currency exchanged between all known races.)
The xaling and rodan have also gone on many research ventures. Rodan have a special interest in the aforementioned neural nets due to their ability to aid in parallel processing, more naturally extrapolate probability, and survive at the cold temperatures of space. Carbon based nets are very touchy and need to be warmed, while the machines next to it like to run cold. The downside being that cold hydrocarbon nets must be very pressurised, or kept at a very narrow temperature window so the methane does not freeze or boil. Keeping it in a small temperature window is not that hard for rodan technology and low pressure makes the container less dangerous if it fails, but there will be a significant slowdown since low pressure atoms become more spaced out, increasing signal travel distance, and calculation time.
Low pressure carbon based nets also have the disadvantage of using an axon with synapse at the end, while hydrocarbon nerves do not utilise an axon, instead having terminals and synapse branching off the main cell next to the dendrites. This makes the carbon nets slower than hydrocarbon ones at high pressures, and faster at low pressures. (The speed difference is more mellowed out with carbon nets, they still get slower at low pressures, and faster at high pressures, but not as much as hydrocarbon nets.)
In addition to neural nets, there have been multiple projects involving a regenerating hull for jumpships. Travel though limbo can be very corrosive to a ship's hull depending on how fast you go and how close to gravity wells you get. A hull that can regenerate would allow for longer jumps and would do away with the need for hull inspection and time consuming plate replacement.
Several experimental ships have been fitted with a regenerating carapace, however it has proven to grow far too slowly and consumes far too much food material to be practical and does not work well with extremely hot plasma shields.
It has been theorised that regenerating hulls may be practical for 1000 mile long void class ships, due to the square/cube law, though such a massive venture has not yet been tested.
Xaling ships:
As mentioned before, most transportation is done with rodan vessels though the xaling still favor their own ships for some scientific endeavors in other systems, and mining, where renting a rodan ship is too expensive for the profitable collection and selling of fusionable material. (Mostly hydrogen from gas giants.)
That being said, xaling ships are commonly made of steel, aluminum, or some other metallic substance, and have an augmented xaling pilot connected to the ship. Most ships are controlled entirely by the pilot, and any crew are usually security (turret crew and boarding party deterrent), engineers (repair), and medics.
Only the largest ships will have more than the pilot and captain connected to the bridge at the same time.
Piracy:
As with every space faring biological civilisation, there will be piracy. These pirates typically hide in caves, in planetary rings, and the far reaches of the solar system.
Pirates are usually poor miners, broke merchants, ships with mutineer crew, or escaped criminals.
These pirates, much like human pirates of old, usually leave people and bigger ships alone, and typically only kill when they are not given what they want, or need to keep up an image. (They are people, not ruthless animals after all.)
The most notable pirate is "commander blue". (Known for his once oddly blue skin, only known to happen when some xaling are born in space.) His father was a miner who's ship was mistakenly attacked by a rodan escort who was not informed by the xaling space controll agency of their presence near a gas giant.
Blue can qualify as a cybrx, (the name carried over, even after conversion.) commands at least 56 ships, and is known for boarding ships with his cloths on fire, attempting to paint an evil or crazy image of himself so the ship is less likely to resist once boarded. His first officer acts as a more down to earth moderator, pretending to argue against blue's seemingly insane ramblings to butcher, kill, or torture the captured ship's crew.
Blue has also been known to ram other ships if normal combat is ineffective (combat with greater than 1,000,000 miles between ships.) And is rumored to have a giant shipyard floating between stars somewhere in the buffalo nebulae. Though all attempts to find it have come up empty, causing some to believe the base is somewhere else, or does not exist.

Biokits may also be gotten on the black market, though they can cause severe side effects or death if not operated properly, the lower class may use biocybernetics, though they are much more risky than the mechanical alternative given the reputation of lower class biomechanics.
CYBERCOSIS is a mental, condition wherein the subject looses touch with reality due to over augmentation.
Though the effects can vary widely based on the enhancements, and the subject's mental predisposition. Cybercosis is less common in subjects with biocybernetics, though not unheard of.
Physical
Physical enhancement has the least impact on xaling psychology. Mental side effects are extremely rare, however with full body replacement also comes full sensory replacement and possible overload. (See sensory below) most side effects are caused by a subject's ethics and personal philosophy.
Physical enhancements can cause a sense of emptiness and depression, having lost most of their biological body, some subjects may feel that all they need is electricity and a paste to feed their nervous system, making other things and their life seem pointless, like eating, sleeping, and socializing. This may be a gradual and creeping sense of dread as more augmentation is added, or begin as a sudden realization of what the subject has become.
On the other end, a subject may be thrilled with the idea, feeling that it has made them near immortal, and having freed them from the needs of a biological body, perhaps feeling more familiar with machines than their own biological brethren. These may be refered to as cybrx (ˈsaɪbrs), a corruption of cybrex (ˈsaɪbrɛks), the name given to them by humans when they came in contact with the xaling, since the effects of modification on these individuals are similar to the effects on heavily augmented human cybrex. (Was caused by a human typo and translation error. The error was discovered several hours later, however xaling scientists had already released the conversation transcript to reporters and media outlets, and the name stuck. For a time the scientific community refered to augmented xaling as cybrex, though they did eventually accept cybrx to help distinguish themselves from the human variant. Before humans there was no official name for the cybrx.)
While most will go about their normal lives, some cybrx may attempt to gather a following of like minded augmented xaling, feeling they need to free themselves from basic biological needs. These groups can range from reserved and closed off, to open and accepting of the unaugmented, keeping track of a credit to help pay for their conversion.
Individuals may rise among the cybrx that ether have a predisposition causing insanity, or may suffer from too many mental or sensory augmentation.
Attacks from over augmented cybrx are very rare, though quite devastating. An average of 0.005/100,000 people die (an average of 25 per square mile) every year from such attacks. (There are ~1,000,000,000,000 Xaling on their homeworld. A total of ~5,000,000 world wide die every year from attacks. This sounds like allot, but consider that 292,320,000 xaling hatch every day planet wide.) Although being a cybrx in and of it's self is not harmful, or risky to others, the aforementioned damage caused by a sick cybrx, and the media have created a negative misconception about heavy physical augmentation.
A special squad of police are used to respond to attacks, they are often remote controlled war machines or manned biomechs equiped to capture or (usually) kill the agitators. The rodan may assist or arm these squads, basic rodan weapons being more advanced than most xaling equipment, along with a stronger bipedal body better designed for physical combat.
25%-30% of the population may qualify to be a cybrx. ~2% of cybrx may be unstable.
sensory
Sensory cybernetics can cause sleeping issues and if too many are installed, can cause sensory overload.
Symptoms of overload usually entail schizophrenic behavior, such as mistrust of friends and a senseless fear of certain objects, such as a hammer, or knife laying on the floor that could be used as a weapon, despite there being no one in sight.
Overloaded individuals may avoid or suddenly run away from friends and attempt to destroy or run away from the frightening object. It is extremely rare for subjects to attack friends during an anxiety attack.
Individuals suffering from an anxiety attack may be reported and taken in by the government, having their cybernetics removed and put into rehabilitation, often having a full recovery within a year.
~90% of the population have sensory systems. ~5% of the population may be unstable.
mental
Mental enhancement is some of the most complex, as it adds to or replaces part of the subject's brain.
Mental enhancements are almost never done by established shops and often too expensive for low lives to buy on the black market. The most basic of mechanical mental enhancements are more expensive than most biological enhancements of the other two categories.
Mental enhancements have the greatest effect out of all mods, but also the greatest risk, and adverse effects.
It is much rarer for someone to become unstable from too many mental enhancements due to cost prohibiting most people from getting more than one or two, however, there have been a few cases where higher class citizens have gone crazy, or developed a split personality from too many augments.
Symptoms typically range from loosing time, to sleep walking for several days, to loosing control over your body, being traped inside, only able to watch as your mods work as you.
There are very few known methods of detecting and helping a person who has too many mental implants, due to the delicate nature of them, and potential to loose vast amounts of memory if they are deactivated, due to the subject's brain relying on them to store data or process information. Removing the mods may leve the subject a vegetable.
Because of their inherent danger, mental enhancements are highly regulated, and only so many can be made per year.
The government bids out the right to make these enhancements every 10 years, with the cost getting added to the highest bidder's taxes.
~40% of the population have at least one mental implant. ~1% may be overcome by them.
otheunclear
There are many other augmentations that have an unclear position among the categories. An example would be neural plugs and I/O systems for the net. (internet)
Though they do connect to the brain, and may qualify as an addition in some respects, they are not considered mental augmentations since they usually do not handle cognitive processes, instead they are considered a sensory augment since they are enabling the connection between a biological brain and the net, usually through a brain's auditory and visual centers.
Religion:
Due to wide spread education and technology, religion is very rare among xaling, and what little there is usually has to do with the worship of technology, limbo, or the universe.
These religions usually pop up in poorly educated districts and are usually the result of misinterpreting a subject, especially limbo the entity and limbo subspace.
The largest underground religion is the "church of othob" with 12,000 members.
Though the government does not have a law against religion, they do discourage it.
Space politics:
Over the years sentiment grew between the Xaling and Rodan empires, both are very number orientated, and do not like to waist time, when they want something they get it. Xaling still maintain the majority of their population on their homeworld, often sharing worlds with the Rodan, who prefer a cold environment to properly run their factorys and computers, along with the ability to experiment with xaling DNA and methane based life, specifically methane based neural nets. In exchange the Rodan, with the best ships, offer highly discounted space travel and manufacturing services.
(Gold, due to it's electrical use and inherent rarity, is the galactic standard currency exchanged between all known races.)
The xaling and rodan have also gone on many research ventures. Rodan have a special interest in the aforementioned neural nets due to their ability to aid in parallel processing, more naturally extrapolate probability, and survive at the cold temperatures of space. Carbon based nets are very touchy and need to be warmed, while the machines next to it like to run cold. The downside being that cold hydrocarbon nets must be very pressurised, or kept at a very narrow temperature window so the methane does not freeze or boil. Keeping it in a small temperature window is not that hard for rodan technology and low pressure makes the container less dangerous if it fails, but there will be a significant slowdown since low pressure atoms become more spaced out, increasing signal travel distance, and calculation time.
Low pressure carbon based nets also have the disadvantage of using an axon with synapse at the end, while hydrocarbon nerves do not utilise an axon, instead having terminals and synapse branching off the main cell next to the dendrites. This makes the carbon nets slower than hydrocarbon ones at high pressures, and faster at low pressures. (The speed difference is more mellowed out with carbon nets, they still get slower at low pressures, and faster at high pressures, but not as much as hydrocarbon nets.)
In addition to neural nets, there have been multiple projects involving a regenerating hull for jumpships. Travel though limbo can be very corrosive to a ship's hull depending on how fast you go and how close to gravity wells you get. A hull that can regenerate would allow for longer jumps and would do away with the need for hull inspection and time consuming plate replacement.
Several experimental ships have been fitted with a regenerating carapace, however it has proven to grow far too slowly and consumes far too much food material to be practical and does not work well with extremely hot plasma shields.
It has been theorised that regenerating hulls may be practical for 1000 mile long void class ships, due to the square/cube law, though such a massive venture has not yet been tested.
Xaling ships:
As mentioned before, most transportation is done with rodan vessels though the xaling still favor their own ships for some scientific endeavors in other systems, and mining, where renting a rodan ship is too expensive for the profitable collection and selling of fusionable material. (Mostly hydrogen from gas giants.)
That being said, xaling ships are commonly made of steel, aluminum, or some other metallic substance, and have an augmented xaling pilot connected to the ship. Most ships are controlled entirely by the pilot, and any crew are usually security (turret crew and boarding party deterrent), engineers (repair), and medics.
Only the largest ships will have more than the pilot and captain connected to the bridge at the same time.
Piracy:
As with every space faring biological civilisation, there will be piracy. These pirates typically hide in caves, in planetary rings, and the far reaches of the solar system.
Pirates are usually poor miners, broke merchants, ships with mutineer crew, or escaped criminals.
These pirates, much like human pirates of old, usually leave people and bigger ships alone, and typically only kill when they are not given what they want, or need to keep up an image. (They are people, not ruthless animals after all.)
The most notable pirate is "commander blue". (Known for his once oddly blue skin, only known to happen when some xaling are born in space.) His father was a miner who's ship was mistakenly attacked by a rodan escort who was not informed by the xaling space controll agency of their presence near a gas giant.
Blue can qualify as a cybrx, (the name carried over, even after conversion.) commands at least 56 ships, and is known for boarding ships with his cloths on fire, attempting to paint an evil or crazy image of himself so the ship is less likely to resist once boarded. His first officer acts as a more down to earth moderator, pretending to argue against blue's seemingly insane ramblings to butcher, kill, or torture the captured ship's crew.
Blue has also been known to ram other ships if normal combat is ineffective (combat with greater than 1,000,000 miles between ships.) And is rumored to have a giant shipyard floating between stars somewhere in the buffalo nebulae. Though all attempts to find it have come up empty, causing some to believe the base is somewhere else, or does not exist.

That’s not bullshit……….
This is Bullshit – Bullshit Australia!
At this stage of the game it simply begs the question of whether it is the policy of the current Australian LNP government, headed by PM Scott Morrison, to completely trash the competitive basis of the Australian economy and to inflict lasting economic pain on all Australians.
Further to that, if we think it was an ALP government (Gillard’s) which OK’d the Gladstone white elephant, and governments of both flavours which have looked the other way while Australian gas which once meant amongst the cheapest gas prices in the world for Sydney and Melbourne, and therefore cheap electricity, has become about the world’s most expensive – while both sides of politics try to nudge coal seam gas and fracking on a population all too aware of the environmental and health costs this entails – then the following question simply arise.
Does Australia’s body politic – both mainstream sides including the Lberal Party, the National Party and the Australian Labor Party – have at its core an economic policy of completely trashing the competitive basis of the Australian economy and to inflict lasting economic pain on all Australians?
Have Australian public sector data gathering, regulatory, and policy formulation organisations and departments been so corrupted that they do not identify the above? Have they been so neutered that they cannot report the above to Australian politicians?
And at that point
Are Australian political and public sector elites acting in the best interests of Australians? Are they accountable for acting in the interests and explaining their actions to Australians to a sufficient degree enabling Australians to feel that their politicians and senior policy makers are accountable to them? ….and if they are not, How can they be made more so?
It is time for open revolt.
I think it is time for a new political party which I would call putatively Bullshit Australia – the party to identify and deal with Australian Bullshit and to promote informed and data backed decisionmaking throughout the political and administrative bodies of Australia, and to hold politicians, public officials and corporate interests to account for past decisions made, starting with a permanent standing Australian Corruption Commission.
(Edit removed members names)
I propose we aim initially – the next Federal election – at trying to get up 4 Senators from each state. I propose we get as far as we can up the nose of the current ‘elites’ by constipating their policy platforms in the Senate. I think/suspect we currently lack women…….
Key Slogan ‘This is Bullshit!’ Men and Women of Australia, Have you ever wondered about your energy costs ………‘This is Bullshit!’ Do you wonder why your salary hasnt gone up in donkeys years? ‘This is Bullshit!’ Do you work in a large organisation wondering why psychopaths inhabit the upper floors and you get stuck with meaningless KPIs? ‘This is Bullshit!’ Do you worry about if your kids will get a decent education in a government school while ‘elite’ private schools get more funding from all levels of government than your kids school does? ‘This is Bullshit!’ Do you wonder why your governments keep banging on about immigration needed for skills shortages when kids with Master degrees are joining the military as base grade grunts because there is nothing else for them to get into? ‘This is Bullshit!’ Do you wonder why Australia, the worlds largest gas exporter has the worlds most expensive gas in Sydney and Melbourne? ‘This is Bullshit!’ Do you wonder why foreign nationals traipsed on in and laundered money through Australian real estate so your kids need to move to Campbelltown to be able to afford a house, and hack out a 2 hour commute to a peanut paying gig every day? ‘This is Bullshit!’
Every time a mainstream politicians opens his mouth (or her mouth) in the public domain, just point out ‘This is Bullshit!’
Draft Policy Platform – for discussion/arguing about/ data provision I propose that the Bullshit Australia and the Macrobusiness cognoscenti run a full campaign in the upcoming election to get ourselves elected as the swing players, running on a platform revolving around (with negotiations/debate/argy bargy) the below…….

2020.09.17 10:11 Buckaroo_Kronopoulos Bail de particulier à particulier - Caution "Western Union"

Je recherche un appartement sur Paris et j'ai trouvé une affaire qui semble "en or" : 2 pièces, 52m2 dans le 20e arrondissement pour 550€ !
Je crains une arnaque pour récupérer la caution, merci de me donner votre avis éclairé !

J'ai demandé pourquoi le prix était si bas et la réponse du proprio a été (copier-coller, fautes incluses) :
"
Merci pour votre réponse. Nous louons l‘appartement meublé, et le bail est est de longue durée. Le contrat de location sera établi entre vous et nous( ma femme et moi). Nous louons l‘aappartement à ce prix dans le but d‘aider ce qui sont dans le besoin.
Veuillez me faire parvenir votre dossier locatif afin que nous puissions en convenir d‘un jour de visite.
"
Je tente donc le coup et lui envoie les pièces demandées.
Voilà son retour et la système qu'il met en place pour la caution :
"
Re Bonjour
Merci pour votre réactivité ; Votre profil correspond à nos attentes.
Nous vous proposons de ce fait un R.D.V le Vendredi 18 Septembre à 16 H 30 à l‘adresse de l‘appartement
Au cas où la date vous conviendrait, nous vous prions de vous munir de votre dossier complet, car nous ne tenons pas à faire des navettes inutiles comme la semaine passée.
Ci-dessous énumérés, les documents constitutifs du dossier à présenter :
¤ Une Pièce d'identité ou Passeport ou encore permis de conduire en cours de validité
¤ Dernier relevé de salaire (ou celle de votre garant)
¤ Dernière quittance de loyer (si vous quittez un logement)
¤ Dépôt de garantie par Mandat WESTERN UNION de 1100€, à l'ordre d'un proche ou ami (époux, conjoint, père).
Procédure d'établissement du dépôt de garantie par mandat Western Union :
Vous vous rendez dans un bureau de poste (ou une agence Western Union) avec les 1100€ en espèces (ou votre carte bancaire) muni de votre pièce d'identité et vous demandez simplement à effectuer un transfert via WESTERN UNION à un parent (en qui vous avez confiance et avec qui vous êtes facilement en contact) ;
Après l'encaissement des fonds, le postier vous délivrera un reçu comportant des références (Code MTCN) devant permettre à l'unique bénéficiaire du transfert (votre parent en question) de retirer la somme avec sa pièce d'identité.
Une fois le transfert effectué, vous nous enverrez par mail le justificatif (photo ou scan) afin de nous assurer la disponibilité du dépôt de garantie bloqué sur Western Union ; pour confirmation du rendez-vous.
Nous voudrions juste être sûr de la disponibilité des fonds afin d'éviter tout déplacement inutile et éviter de nous faire berner à nouveau.
Au vu de tout ce qui se passe sur internet, nous préférons que le Mandat via Western Union soit dans un premier temps fait au nom de quelqu'un que vous connaissez, en qui vous avez confiance comme cela vous aurez la certitude que votre argent ne pourra être encaissé par une tierce personne.
D'un commun accord après la visite, nous procéderons à la signature du bail / remise des clés et nous rendrons en ce moment ensemble dans le bureau de poste le plus proche afin de changer le nom du bénéficiaire du Transfert (à l'ordre de ma femme ou du mien).
Le dossier complet plus le nouveau récépissé du Mandat Western Union, seront donc remis à ce moment en mains propres contre le reçu de la caution, une quittance de loyer et les copies du titre de propriété puis de nos pièces d'identité.
Au cas où la visite du logement ne serait pas concluante, vous n'aurez plus à nous remettre votre dossier et il suffira que votre parent (bénéficiaire du Transfert) se rende à la poste pour vous encaisser la totalité des fonds déposés.
"

Je fuis ?

2020.09.15 08:46 cries_when_segfaults Mirco server and "work" pc- AU$1k budget for both

Please help me with these two items, not even sure if it possible I last built a computer in 2008 so I'm a bit out of touch & don't have the spare time to research it.Work PC
  1. *What will you be doing with this PC? Be as specific as possible, and include specific games or programs you will be using.** Program list: Blender, AutoCAD, Unity, Altium, and Borderlands 3
  2. **What is your maximum budget before rebates/shipping/taxes?** I have a combined AU$1k budget for both items.
  3. **When do you plan on building/buying the PC? Note: beyond a week or two from today means any build you receive will be out of date when you want to buy.** ASAP
  4. **What, exactly, do you need to be included in the budget?** Motherboard/gpu/s/cpu/mem/hdd/wifi&BT/case/cooling system (probs fans at this price)/standard ports-no monitors needed I have a couple of crappy old ones and a billion of adapters
  5. **Which country (and state/province) will you be purchasing the parts in? If you're in US, do you have access to a Microcenter location?** Australia-so all parts go-go gadget internet
  6. **Will you be overclocking? If yes, are you interested in overclocking right away, or down the line? CPU and/or GPU?** probably will do this down the track to extend the usability/when I don't want to wait a day a build.
  7. **Are there any specific features or items you want/need in the build? (ex: SSD, large amount of storage or a RAID setup, CUDA or OpenCL support, etc)** I want to be able to have 2-3 screens (compile/build on one screen while working on another)
  8. **Do you have any specific case preferences (Size like ITX/microATX/mid-towefull-tower, styles, colors, window or not, LED lighting, etc), or a particular color theme preference for the components?** cfb about the superficial look of it, as long as it works
  9. **Do you need a copy of Windows included in the budget? If you do need one included, do you have a preference?** Leave it off, please
  10. **Extra info or particulars:** This is what I'd like to spend the bulk of my funds on If you can't make both with the budget, burn it here plz.
Microserver
  1. *What will you be doing with this PC? Be as specific as possible, and include specific games or programs you will be using.** Used to house my VVT client foundry to play D&D online each week.
  2. **What is your maximum budget before rebates/shipping/taxes?** Ideally as little as possible have 1k budget for both
  3. **When do you plan on building/buying the PC? Note: beyond a week or two from today means any build you receive will be out of date when you want to buy.** ASAP my 8-year-old surface can't handle being a client and a gm interface.
  4. **What, exactly, do you need to be included in the budget? I've seen posts about foundry VVT running on a raspPI 3, so something a slight step up from is what I'm looking for, as I use animated maps/dynamic weather etc.
  5. **Which country (and state/province) will you be purchasing the parts in? If you're in US, do you have access to a Microcenter location?** Australia-so all parts go-go gadget internet
  6. **Are there any specific features or items you want/need in the build? (ex: SSD, large amount of storage or a RAID setup, CUDA or OpenCL support, etc)** It can be noisy (sound), It'll live next to the modem.
  7. **Do you have any specific case preferences (Size like ITX/microATX/mid-towefull-tower, styles, colors, window or not, LED lighting, etc), or a particular color theme preference for the components?** minimalist/as compact as possible
  8. **Do you need a copy of Windows included in the budget? If you do need one included, do you have a preference?** Leave it out plz

2020.09.14 14:06 brisagugu Besoin d'avis sur l'achat d'un VAE

Bonjour,
Je souhaite acheter un VAE pour une utilisation quotidienne de 24km sur mon trajet domicile-travail (quelques petites collines) mais aussi pour de plus ou moins longues randonnées le weekend. J'ai un budget de 2300€.
Je peux bénéficier d'une aide de ma collectivité seulement si j'achète le vélo dans une boutique locale (donc pas d'achat sur internet). De plus, je dois utiliser le chèque d'aide avant le 1er octobre.
J'ai l'habitude du VTT que j'utilise pour tout type de déplacement depuis des années. Par contre, je n'ai utilisé des vélos de villes que ponctuellement et leur esthétique ne me plaît pas trop.
Je suis donc allée voir toutes les boutiques de ma ville et elles sont toutes en rupture de stock des VAE (surtout à ma taille, je mesure 1m60). Certaines ne recevront pas de nouveaux vélos avant février ou avril.
Nous avons épluché les catalogues des prochains arrivages chez les vendeurs et il n'y aura qu'un seul vélo dans les critères taille, budget et date de réception possible. Il s'agit du CUBE Nature One 500 Allroad à 2300€ prévu pour mi-octobre.
La boutique me conseille de réserver dès que possible car tous les VAE en pré-commande sont vendus très rapidement.
Mes questions sont les suivantes :
Merci beaucoup pour vos conseils.

2020.09.14 04:49 cries_when_segfaults Mirco server and "work" pc- AU$1k budget for both

Please help me with these two items, not even sure if it possible I last built a computer in 2008 so I'm a bit out of touch & don't have the spare time to research it.Work PC
  1. *What will you be doing with this PC? Be as specific as possible, and include specific games or programs you will be using.** Program list: Blender, AutoCAD, Unity, Altium, and Borderlands 3
  2. **What is your maximum budget before rebates/shipping/taxes?** I have a combined AU$1k budget for both items.
  3. **When do you plan on building/buying the PC? Note: beyond a week or two from today means any build you receive will be out of date when you want to buy.** ASAP
  4. **What, exactly, do you need to be included in the budget?** Motherboard/gpu/s/cpu/mem/hdd/wifi&BT/case/cooling system (probs fans at this price)/standard ports-no monitors needed I have a couple of crappy old ones and a billion of adapters
  5. **Which country (and state/province) will you be purchasing the parts in? If you're in US, do you have access to a Microcenter location?** Australia-so all parts go-go gadget internet
  6. **Will you be overclocking? If yes, are you interested in overclocking right away, or down the line? CPU and/or GPU?** probably will do this down the track to extend the usability/when I don't want to wait a day a build.
  7. **Are there any specific features or items you want/need in the build? (ex: SSD, large amount of storage or a RAID setup, CUDA or OpenCL support, etc)** I want to be able to have 2-3 screens (compile/build on one screen while working on another)
  8. **Do you have any specific case preferences (Size like ITX/microATX/mid-towefull-tower, styles, colors, window or not, LED lighting, etc), or a particular color theme preference for the components?** cfb about the superficial look of it, as long as it works
  9. **Do you need a copy of Windows included in the budget? If you do need one included, do you have a preference?** Leave it off, please
  10. **Extra info or particulars:** This is what I'd like to spend the bulk of my funds on If you can't make both with the budget, burn it here plz.
Microserver
  1. *What will you be doing with this PC? Be as specific as possible, and include specific games or programs you will be using.** Used to house my VVT client foundry to play D&D online each week.
  2. **What is your maximum budget before rebates/shipping/taxes?** Ideally as little as possible have 1k budget for both
  3. **When do you plan on building/buying the PC? Note: beyond a week or two from today means any build you receive will be out of date when you want to buy.** ASAP my 8-year-old surface can't handle being a client and a gm interface.
  4. **What, exactly, do you need to be included in the budget? I've seen posts about foundry VVT running on a raspPI 3, so something a slight step up from is what I'm looking for, as I use animated maps/dynamic weather etc.
  5. **Which country (and state/province) will you be purchasing the parts in? If you're in US, do you have access to a Microcenter location?** Australia-so all parts go-go gadget internet
  6. **Are there any specific features or items you want/need in the build? (ex: SSD, large amount of storage or a RAID setup, CUDA or OpenCL support, etc)** It can be noisy (sound), It'll live next to the modem.
  7. **Do you have any specific case preferences (Size like ITX/microATX/mid-towefull-tower, styles, colors, window or not, LED lighting, etc), or a particular color theme preference for the components?** minimalist/as compact as possible
  8. **Do you need a copy of Windows included in the budget? If you do need one included, do you have a preference?** Leave it out plz

2020.09.09 11:20 cbdtravel Looking for online flight ticket booking?

The days are gone where travellers are expected to visit their nearest travel agent and settle down on a single fare were booking flights. Today, the Internet provides consumers with a much simpler way to buy and book flight tickets online. The benefits range from fast and easy ways to compare fares on different airlines to enable passengers to print their boarding passes at home.
Convenience
The ability to book airfare online means you can do it any time of the day, wherever you are. While in the office and even when you're on your way somewhere, you can book a flight at home, through a laptop or a smartphone. You also don't have to worry about finding a parking space at the travel agency by booking an online flight ticket, waiting for service or feeling rushed to book a flight on-site without even thinking about it.
Tariffs
When you do flight ticket booking, you have the opportunity to buy at the best price around. When booking flights through a single travel agent or calling an airline, travellers do not get this sort of equality. Buying the ticket online ensures that consumers are able to try out several airlines before making their decision.
Cancellations
When you have booked an airfare online, modifying or cancelling a ticket is easy. All you have to do in several cases is go straight to the airline's website and log in with your booking details. From there you can easily change your flight to a later date, upgrade to another cabin class or cancel your booking.
Another advantage is that flight ticket booking at a standard travel agency may incur an additional "external charge," while some airlines may waive the additional fee if you can finalise changes online through the website of the airline.
Conclusion
CBD Travels your backup when you are planning a trip or vacation, take advantage of the benefits of online flight ticket booking to help you save both money and time.

2020.09.08 14:25 cwprivatejet Où affréter un jet privé

La première étape de l’affrètement d’une jet privé à parler directement à l’affréteur. Cela peut sembler assez évident, mais la «franchise» mérite d’être soulignée.
Plus il y a de couches de clients téléphoniques, plus les coûts potentiels et les chances que leur commande soit retardée ou mal interprétée sont importants.
Dans le cas où les clients ne peuvent pas parler directement à un directeur d’affrètement ou sont mal à l’aise de le faire, les courtiers affrétés sont le meilleur substitut. Ils ont une connaissance intime de l’industrie et peuvent ainsi aider à organiser des vols au nom de leurs clients en fonction de leurs besoins et besoins spécifiques.
Parmi les informations les plus importantes à fournir au directeur ou au courtier figurent l’heure et la date auxquelles vous souhaitez voyager ainsi que le nombre de passagers qui voyageront.
La destination est également importante et peut être une énorme opportunité d’économiser de l’argent. Les administrateurs et les courtiers d’affrètement peuvent connaître des aéroports plus proches de la destination que celui proposé par le client ou les sources suggérant cet aéroport pour eux.

Avantages spéciaux et demandes

Ensuite, il y a les avantages et les demandes susmentionnés.
Comme indiqué, ces derniers doivent tous être autorisés avant qu’un avion puisse être affrété, mais les chances que cela se produise avec les services d’affrètement, pour des raisons évoquées, sont beaucoup plus grandes qu’avec les compagnies aériennes commerciales.
Cela étant dit, plus une partie peut être spécifique à propos de ses demandes, plus elle a de chances d’être approuvée.
De plus, bon nombre de ces demandes peuvent déjà être proposées dans le cadre d’un forfait spécialisé offert par le service nolisé.
Par exemple, la restauration et les équipements spéciaux à bord sont parfois proposés dans le cadre de forfaits prédéfinis spéciaux.

Négocier le prix

Après cette première conversation avec le directeur ou le courtier, ils enverront généralement un devis à l’intéressé. Cela ne devrait pas prendre longtemps à calculer, peut-être seulement une heure ou deux.
La partie qui demande un vol affrété peut tenter de négocier les jet prive prix, bien qu’il n’y ait bien sûr aucune garantie de succès. Une fois qu’un prix a été convenu, il est généralement payé d’avance.
Enfin et surtout, même à l’ère d’Internet, l’affrètement d’avions reste un service qui, dans une certaine mesure, nécessite encore une certaine communication face à face ou par téléphone.
Étant donné la nature particulière des accords, ce degré de communication étroite est nécessaire pour s’assurer que tous les détails sont exacts avant la conclusion de l’accord.
