I went with an apartment registered as a "Superhost" because I wanted the reliability that came with that title. I was afraid; after all, I was travelling alone.
Here's how our interactions went.

@elana_s They are gonna implement REX84,it suspends the constitution.No guns for anyone again!— ☠Kurt☠ (@Unreel10) July 8, 2016
@elana_s Rex84 is public info it's on youtube,it's the governments base martial law act laid out in steps.The leader of BLM (Deray) pt.1..— ☠Kurt☠ (@Unreel10) July 8, 2016
@elana_s Actually Ben Carson gave the most recent warning about it but others out of the military have been also warning of it.— ☠Kurt☠ (@Unreel10) July 8, 2016
@elana_s Under REX84 Obama has power to suspend all branches of government & it will be all him & FEMA according to the law.— ☠Kurt☠ (@Unreel10) July 8, 2016
@elana_s Not in the open but we just had a general retire that said obama was getting ready to do this,the interview is on youtube.Scary!— ☠Kurt☠ (@Unreel10) July 8, 2016
@Unreel10 Sounds like rumours to me…— Elana (@elana_s) July 8, 2016
@elana_s Might sound crazy but Ron Paul also warned in 2012 that we would not have another election.He said obama would not leave.— ☠Kurt☠ (@Unreel10) July 8, 2016
@elana_s Not yet and I hope it stays that way but BHO does not wanna leave office and an Army general isn't going to talk shit for fun.— ☠Kurt☠ (@Unreel10) July 8, 2016
@elana_s If you're talking about the general no he was point blank about it.Went into details about which branches and ranks BHO trusts.— ☠Kurt☠ (@Unreel10) July 8, 2016
@elana_s No and I'm hoping the past two days aren't the beginning of the happening part.— ☠Kurt☠ (@Unreel10) July 8, 2016
@elana_s Ben Carson called this to a T but wouldn't say who told him.— ☠Kurt☠ (@Unreel10) July 8, 2016
@elana_s It's online,he said BHO would cause violence and rioting then declare martial law to suspend the elections and stay in power.— ☠Kurt☠ (@Unreel10) July 8, 2016
@elana_s Deray told BLM in the hacked messages to cause violence to start martial law and BHO could stay in office,it's happening now.— ☠Kurt☠ (@Unreel10) July 8, 2016
@Unreel10 I don’t know who Deray is, but it sounds like this is his plan, not Obama’s… no?— Elana (@elana_s) July 8, 2016
@elana_s The general that exposed part of this said it's BHO's plan directly.Deray is the leader of BLM which is now federally funded.— ☠Kurt☠ (@Unreel10) July 8, 2016
@elana_s Deray is connected to the DNC which is connected to BHO and yes terrorism has been used throughout history to bring nations down— ☠Kurt☠ (@Unreel10) July 8, 2016
@elana_s If that's all it was sure,you need to read into it more,last year over 1000 green berets signed a warning to BHO about this.— ☠Kurt☠ (@Unreel10) July 8, 2016
@Unreel10 They were warning him? About what? If it’s his decision, shouldn’t it be him warning other people?— Elana (@elana_s) July 8, 2016
@Unreel10 Who writes that site? It’s got like popup ads, seems fishy— Elana (@elana_s) July 8, 2016
@elana_s They where warning BHO not to try for it.Saying that they won't back him on it.— ☠Kurt☠ (@Unreel10) July 8, 2016
@elana_s The warning's have been given by to many that are in the know,Sheriff Clark has also warned people and he's not guessing.— ☠Kurt☠ (@Unreel10) July 8, 2016
@elana_s He's going off of documents sent to him by homeland security.— ☠Kurt☠ (@Unreel10) July 8, 2016
@elana_s They are asking Sheriffs across the country to assist U.N. troops & FEMA in a continuity of government program.— ☠Kurt☠ (@Unreel10) July 8, 2016
@elana_s Continuity of government is the governments survival plan under martial law to maintain control even if police & military fight bak— ☠Kurt☠ (@Unreel10) July 8, 2016
@elana_s No but Sheriff Clark pointed out that BHO wants to enforce the U.N. small arms treaty & it has to happen before he's out.— ☠Kurt☠ (@Unreel10) July 8, 2016
@Unreel10 What does that have to do with martial law?— Elana (@elana_s) July 8, 2016
@Unreel10 I still don’t see the connection to martial law?— Elana (@elana_s) July 8, 2016
@elana_s The U.N. has had job openings on their webpage hiring agents to disarm Americans.They need martial law to get the guns.— ☠Kurt☠ (@Unreel10) July 8, 2016
@Unreel10 You think he would instate martial law just to collect people’s handguns?— Elana (@elana_s) July 8, 2016
@Unreel10 He said he would instate martial law so he could take everyone’s handguns?— Elana (@elana_s) July 8, 2016
@Unreel10 But did he actually say he would instate martial law to do it?— Elana (@elana_s) July 8, 2016
@Unreel10 The United Nations encourages democracies to instate martial law?— Elana (@elana_s) July 8, 2016
@Unreel10 WOW show me that document!— Elana (@elana_s) July 8, 2016
@Unreel10 I just went to the United Nations website and searched for “global martial law” and it returned no results :(— Elana (@elana_s) July 8, 2016
@elana_s It's under "small arm's" section under "regional disarmament" It's a lot of reading but it should set you on course.— ☠Kurt☠ (@Unreel10) July 8, 2016
@Unreel10 and I searched for "martial law"... 0 results. Searched for "martial"... 0 results. Thought maybe it wasn't searchable... (cont)— Elana (@elana_s) July 8, 2016
... and then he stopped responding to me :( real research is soooooo scary, I'm going back to the comfortably managed artificial fear of my conspiracy theories!!!!!!!! ahhh the sweet mother's milk of communally-stoked paranoia!!!!
Honestly, though, my only desire was to inject a moment of doubt. I don't want to persuade anyone of anything. I just want to sprinkle a pinch of critical thinking and skepticism all around me when I find myself in dark dogmatic alleyways and party lines. I don't think it worked, but I feel like it is always worth trying.
I have been a loyal, emphatic, lawn-sign-bearing, persuasive Green voter since I moved to downtown Toronto (Spadina/Fort York riding) in 2002. I have been mostly in line, if not utterly delighted, with all of Green's policies. But recently social media drew my attention to the resolution to ban water fluoridation. This is the first time a Green Party policy has struck me as being (pardon me) bats***t crazy. Rampant tooth decay and oral infections were a leading cause of death in ancient Egypt. Tell me the Green Party is in the 21st century (CE) with the rest of us. Objections to the administration of fluoride to our population may be worth debating, but a flat-out ban is rabid panic-mongering madness that will have consequences for public health — particularly for our poorest citizens without access to regular dental care. The Green Party has been my relief in a democratic system where I have largely felt disenfranchised, but I would honestly rather vote for nobody than fall in line with what seems to be chemistry-phobic paranoia.
Help me vote for you. Clarify or scrap this resolution.

me: what is your question?
dFEI_Ti: can you take class with electric power ? we can combine together … 3 chain OVERLOAD , ENERGY DRAIN radius , or electric slash etc …
me: I'm trying to promote my vanguards. I'll play whichever vanguard you prefer
dFEI_Ti: and please take equipments level III IV … is platinum
dFEI_Ti: take electric SMASH … phenix vanguard
me: yes boss
dFEI_Ti: arc g + electric SMASH = TECH BURST --> on geth enemy
me: I understand, I have been playing this game for some time
dFEI_Ti: human classes need extra shield against geth … cyclo III or IV
dFEI_Ti: please kick they just bought copies …
me: please stop telling me what to do. let's just have some fun.
dFEI_Ti: a lot of noobs in ME3 should I be quiet ?
dFEI_Ti: my 3 years statistic ---> 90% of noobs
(game starts, with me playing a character I don't often play, specced a way I have literally never specced it. Mr. Bossypants runs off to the basement of Firebase White on his own, insta-gelling whenever he goes down, while the other two players he tried to kick play my usual strategy and are good co-op players. I take second place on the scoreboard beneath Bossypants and mostly just try to hold the squad together.)
dFEI_Ti: hm you died more than 10 times (geth turret?) … you don't need shield
me: why so mean? we all have something to learn from each other. try to enjoy yourself.
(game takes pity on me and boots me from his lobby. I join up with a friend and try to have a good time but fail Wave 10. my heart still pounds. why did I try to be nice to him? why did I accommodate his demands? why didn't I get on my headset and tell him that me spending my level IV gear will never make as much of a difference as him getting on mic and playing co-operatively? ugh. I feel way worse than I did when I started playing. this is the sort of experience that made me never want to play multiplayer games in the first place.)
(In conclusion, go fuck yourself, dFEI_Ti, wherever you are. Try to be nice. It's a good game, just try to enjoy it. Maybe you are confusing "noob" with "being a separate human being from yourself".)
(ugh, he really got under my skin. Mass Effect is supposed to be my happy place. I wish I never had this encounter.)
Now what do I do? The trolling possibilities are literally endless.
Another piece of amazing background information:
BA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HAAAAAAAA
It has been.
My profile indicates clearly that I am in a strictly monogamous relationship and I am looking for "new friends".
I'm really just looking to troll the trolls. I could probably just write that in my profile too. It's not like they read it.
Fenris (Dragon Age II): that old flame who will always be irresistibly attractive and whenever we're in the same room we can't seem to keep our hands off each other
Garrus Vakarian (Mass Effect trilogy): that guy I almost married
Dorian Pavus (Dragon Age: Inquisition): my gay best friend for whom I will always secretly pine
Thane Krios (Mass Effect 2): my Space Husband Now And Forever Please Read My Epic Romance Fanfiction About Him At http://archiveofourown.org/works/613209 NO ONE SHALL EVER DETHRONE HIM FROM MY HEART HE IS MY FOREVER LOVE OH THANE WHY WHYYYYYYY
She also keeps snakes and advocates for animal rights.
I like her. I follow her on Twitter.
The other day, she got the living hell beaten out of her by her ex, who is also an MMA fighter.
I like her because she struck me as a strong personality, with a strong aesthetic, and a performer's drive. Not only does she have my sympathy and horror as a woman, but an abstracted part of me is offended, because she is beautiful. How could anyone want to destroy someone who is so carefully constructed and embellished? Punching her is punching a woman with a side of art piece.
I'm sad about it. I'm afraid. It's scary to read the perpetrator's tweets afterwards, framing himself as the victim, as being wholly well-intentioned.
I'm upset about the way different news outlets want to reduce this story to "fighter beats porn star", just two caricatures having it out at each other, implying that he is just 'roid rage and she is just inevitably en flagrante (which is apparently not even what happened).
I think I'm also just upset on a human level, that somebody who was part of my life, even as a tiny digital footprint, has had this kind of horror visited upon her.
